IT'S GENDER-MUTABLE FRIDAY Y'ALL
April 1, 2011 5:31 AM   Subscribe

Rule 63: "There is always a female version of a male character" (and vice versa). NSFW. Not even close to safe for work. Some helpful examples: lady Predator. Boy Lilith (from Darkstalkers). Sonic the Hedgehog's Tails, but as a woman version of Tails, watching television in bed, and being sold products related to a good health.

Is Lady Predator holding a poodle skull/spinal column?

Fionna and Cake, a rule 63 of Adventure Time's Finn and Jake by one of the series' artists, have made the leap into actual series canon.

Ice Queen, why you always predatoring on dudes?

And the Boy Lilith link wants me to meet horny people near Fridley.


Oh wait, there he is. I don't want to meet him either.

Seems I can now meet horny singles in my local area.

I'd like Dr. Freud's opinion of that.

You must mean the female version of Gill, from Street Fighter. She's up at the top here.

There is a banner at the bottom of the first linked page: "1 tip for free 4" cock growth," that seems to indicate that I should become the male version of my own character.

But not too male.

Guys don't worry about it being NSFW. Look at the ample censorship on this one.

Watchmen Rule 63 thread. Illustrations are thumbnailed but some of them are NSFW when you click on them, including a very special Rorschach/Nite Owl team-up if you know what I mean and oh who are you kidding.

Gonna buck the tide here by taking this a bit seriously. I read a moderate amount of fanfiction and one of the things I see in genderswaps is a chance to put women in protagonist action roles that they don't normally get in film/tv canons (there are more in books, but the fandoms I read are mostly tv and movie related). It's cool when you're a woman to see a genderswapped hero taking names and kicking ass in the same way the guys get to.

Plus, of course, the porn. Fanworks are frequently about the porn, just not always and only.

Gender-swapped Tails looks like a husky-voiced, gin-swilling divorcée.

Axis Powers Hetalia Rule 63. I suppose because once you've decided you're cool with imagining interwar and WW2 great power politics as a series of gay relationships between personifications of various countries at a high school, flipping the genders around is a really really tiny mental step.

immlass: The signaling is interesting though. Character design attributes are often visual shorthand for the personality of the character, and it's interesting to see which traits are preserved, and which traits are inverted along with gender.

There's probably a masters thesis waiting to be written about this site.

She already knew. And then showed me some of her artwork in this area and proceeded to lecture me on slash-fic, finding my response funny. Reverse trolled, so proud now.

See that. That comment you just made?

That comment eased all of my fears about my inevitable parenthood. Thank you for that.

GREG NOG IS AN INTERNET HERO AND I LOVE HIM AND YOU TAKE THAT BACK RIGHT NOW.
