I have changed my pricing method since I want to make the online e-version accessible to those who don't have extra money but still want to read and learn about intersex; while those who decide to support my labor in continuing the story can pay what they wish! Your support is most appreciated.

---------

Almost Human consists of 5 chapters.

Chapter 1 -- 

A well-disguised vampire x An isolated intersex herbalist 

 The two met each other on a fateful dark night, staging a slightly silly, smutty, fantastical yet also somehow realistic rom-com. 

 It’s never easy to be human.

Concept

Before the story starts, let’s talk about “intersex”.

Do you know that on a newborn, a penis and a clitoris are actually quite similar? When a penis is shorter than ~2.5 cm, or a clitoris exceeding ~0.9-2.5 cm, they will be stated as “ambiguous genitalia”. Surgeries or other treatments are likely to be recommended to make them look “normal” as the binary division of "male" or “female”. To become which sex, to enlarge or reduce, depends on the decision of the doctor and parents.

Apart from the genital, babies also need to pass the challenge of having normal chromosomes, hormones, gonads, etc. According to the Intersex Society of North America, every 1 in 1500-2000 newborns failed to be ’normal”. How many types of intersex are there? I have heard sayings ranging between 4 to 70.

Some people experience “wrong” secondary sexual development during puberty; some women wanted to give birth and found out they had testes instead; Some female athletes got DQ since they have too high testosterone; some never figure out they were “abnormal” for their whole life. Looking at these standards, I realize it’s quite hard to be a “normal” boy/girl. And this hasn’t even counted all the social aspects of gender expectations. 

So here I am, creating a story about an intersex person and a vampire. One being human yet marginalized because of their bodily difference; one being a vampire yet gained social respect through disguised as a human. I find the contrast interesting.
