Author's Summary: “Transmogrification gun”, the box says, and Hex doesn’t think much of it.
Characters/Pairings: Ace/Hex, Seventh Doctor
Recced because: This is another one that caught my eye in the queue, and I immediately knew I had to rec it someday. Ace is so very Ace in this story, fierce yet playful, first seducing Hex into using the transmogrification gun Ace has already grown quite comfortable with, then seducing Hex himself. Genderswap can be tough to pull off effectively without falling into stereotype territory, but that never happens here; each character remains recognizably themselves, no matter what body they're in, and takes pleasure in discovering the thrill of the new – and how surprisingly comfortable it can become.
He’ll never get used to it. Ace has taken to using the gun on herself every few weeks now, and insists on going along on their usual adventures looking like — well, like a man. It’s not that he’s close-minded, Hex tells himself. He doesn’t exactly have moral objections — Ace is free to look any way she likes. If she wants to go around preventing wars and fighting Krynoids like this, then fine, he’s not going to stop her.
It’s just that it’s distracting.
