Author's note!! AHH thank you all who read this humble little story of mine! It's a simple story but I struggled with it for quite a while.
I wanted to write something about acceptance of transgender people because there isn't a whole lot of positive literature out there! And there is a ton of ignorance too.
Anyway, I grappled a lot with this because I don't want it to seem like Edmund wanted to be a princess just because she likes doing "girly" things! It's only mentioned once, but the line where she says she never really felt like a prince is really important!
In the early stages of this story, Emilia was originally going to become a prince, but it wasn't really right for her character.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that gender is a social construct and it's complex and kind of hard to understand but people should be accepting!! thank you

This was quite charming comic ^w^ I liked the soft style, the fairytale-like layout of the pages and of course, the story.
It was heart-warming to see the King accept his own child as who she really was, usually the parent-child-relationship of transgender-people is portrayed as being stormy and sometimes downright violent so it feels good to see truly unconditional love for them, even if it's in fictional form.

I love this story so much!!! There aren't many stories that can tell children that they can be whatever gender they want. I'm definitely reading this story to my kids so they know it's ok to be who you really are. Thank you so much for writing this.
