Bravo! You did a really great job on this story and freshen up the slash/same-sex couples stories here in fictionpress! It's very rare to read transgendered stories here and you did a really great job writing it! Dani's character is very feisty and the relationship is just love :)

That was disappointing...
Seeing as they are still referred to as a "gay" couple when Dani is obviously a transgender GIRL is really upsetting. And I guess it shows that Dani is still going back and forth between dressing like a boy and dressing like a girl.
Utterly disappointing. I'm sorry... But the last half of the book, or maybe the last third of the book just rubbed me the wrong way. I, as a transgender girl would never date a gay man, and if Dani really is transgender, she wouldn't either. So Kevin has got to drop the whole "I'm gay thing," because gay men aren't attracted to women, and that's what Dani is, a woman.

The conversations have been getting a little contrived lately... I'm disappointed :(
And when is Dani finally going to start transitioning? When is she going to start taking hormones, when is she going to get srs (sex reassignment surgery for those who don't know)? Huh? What? Is she going to stay a crossdressing boy forever? That would be awful... She's a transgender girl, she should be able to live as a girl full time...

That was a great chapter! I like how it turned out, so good!
I guess that Kevin doesn't care if Dani wears girl clothes or not because Dani already looks female to him. She has long hair, nice legs and pretty eyes and stuff right? Lucky... Wish I was that pretty before even starting to transition! _

This story is so cute... I really really identify with Dani... Finally beginning my transition into a girl, and presenting as a girl full time was when I let go of the act. I didn't have to be something I wasn't anymore. I'm just a girl, and that's all there is to it.
And about those gay guys... Yep... I've had my fair share of intolerance from gay guys. They never wanted to be around me or date me because I was "too much like a girl, but not even a real one." It hurt to hear that. Well, now I get to escape their bigotry and hate for feminine guys and become the girl I truly am. Now my femininity is appreciated, not looked down on.
And I'm happy that Dani's mom is accepting of her wearing female clothes and liking guys. My greatest hope for Dani is that she'll realize that she's transgender (if in fact she is, which I'm really getting the feeling she is), and will begin seeing a gender therapist and start on hormone replacement therapy. That would be awesome!
And thank you so much for writing this. I felt pretty down today... And this made me feel less alone. Thank you so so much.

Awwww the ending was soo cute :D Really good story here, I love that it isn't just a cool story, it's actually really interesting and depicts transgender/gay issues really well. I found it brilliant how confused Dani always was about whether she was Dani or Danny or both, and what she wanted to be like. It was so sad when he tried to be more masculine and dominant. I dunno, i just found that hard to read. But Kevin was so lovely when he told her that he liked her as both. Amazing story. There are so many bits that were soooo good but I can't mention them all. You're a brilliant writer. I expect this story would be really helpful to people with similar problems about discovering who they are. :) Thank you for writing!

Well I joined up for no other reason really than to give you and another author on here FB, although now that I have the account I will probably make use of it. I was gonna PM you, but no, I have to wait 24hrs for that. Something I wasn’t willing to do, heaven forbid that something happen and I forget, because I REALLY wanted to send you *SOMETHING* saying…WOW! Impressed!
I read this one, The Girl for me, *ALL* in one go today! I also read your profile and profile updates. They gave me a giggle. You’re clever and interesting and you made me smile So I’m pointing it out. It’s not a flirt or anything *grin* I’m a happily married woman who’s just very vocal most days…
So I I guess I’ll start out by telling you that I am, I suppose, a yaoi fan-girl in addition to being an author myself. Although at my age, shall we say, past the thirty mark, I don’t feel like a yaoi-fan girl! Personally, I always think squealing young girls in relation to those words. And there’s nothing wrong with that at all. It just doesn’t seem like me, you know? I feel old some days lol
My point is, I read slash, Yaoi, the original stuff. All M/M in nature. I also write original stuff, thought most of it is not posted to the web.
And FLAT OUT TRUTH, this story of yours is not in the normal range of what I tend to read. I’m more into supernatural romance stuff, with lots and lots of plot and intrigue. And yeah admittedly heavy on the smut at times. But there was a rec for you on GoodReads and I followed it here. For the last few weeks I’ve been chasing down original-slash. I’m in a reading phase rather than a writing phase at the moment.
So here was your book in front of me. I started it. Now honestly cross-dressing, that’s never been a kink of mine. Femininity, some of my characters have a brand of that. But truly *I* don’t go looking for this brand of story. Plus I’m not one to read *Self Discovery* fics. My guys know who they are. In fact in my fictional world I don’t slap on the gay and straight labels. Everyone’s just sexual! And mostly bisexual even though *I* focus on the M/M thing almost exclusively. That’d be my kink lol. Also, this was very mild on the smut. Written in a high school setting, and included a jock of all things! I HATED high school lol. These are not things that I would normally search out to read…
And yet I read through your book in one solid work day. Good thing I’m my own boss, eh? Lol I sucked this story up, and fell in love with Danny and Kevin. This was beautifully presented, well written and a darn fine read. Simple, sweet and very memorable. It will be one of those stories I remember for years to come. You drew me in as a reader, held my attention. You made me root for these two as people. You pulled me into their lives and made me want to tag along on their journey of self discovery. It became about these two, not about the sex or the kink (or about being a yaoi fan girl) It was just about Danny and Kevin, two people finding their way into adulthood and life together. That’s impressive. It was just one heck of a story over all. With that said, I thank you for sharing it.
Dang I’m long winded!

I absolutely adored your story. The characters Kevin and Dani came to life, and I'm still thinking about them days later. This really is good enough to be published! I loved it. xo
