Your character can only be female in this scenario.
Growing up, he was always the sweet, cute boy next door who had the silly crush on you that made you smile and glow, but the two of you only dated briefly before your character realized that she was not very attracted to guys -- and definitely not to blonde, gawky, gangly teenage Brandon Glover. You became best friends instead of high school sweethearts, although you would catch him looking longingly at you from time to time and felt a pang of sympathy for the great guy whose feelings you could never return.
This scenario can proceed in one of two ways. Here is the first:
After the two of you went off to college, some distance entered your relationship, and the two of you began growing apart in various ways. You learned from Brandon's brother, before you ever heard it from him, that Brandon was exploring his gender identity, seeking gender transition counseling. When Brandon finally came out to you and all of your mutual friends from high school, you pretended it was a shock, but really, you were just a little confused. How could the guy you grew up with really have been a girl underneath for all this time? You read his e-mails, respectfully agreed to change the pronouns and name you used for HER in your mind once she introduced herself to you as Vanessa, and you saw a couple of photos in which she didn't look half bad. But --- somehow, it never really clicked in your head that the person you had grown up with, whom you remembered as a guy, was actually becoming a girl.
But in the spring of your second year at graduate school, you suddenly receive an invitation from ... Vanessa ... to accompany HER on a spring break vacation to Ibiza, the beach pleasure Island in the Mediterranean. Your character took some time responding to the invitation, torn between the desire to spend time with your old friend and enjoy an amazing vacation together on the one hand and your slight confusion and discomfort with the new person who took your old friend Brandon's place on the other, but eventually Ibiza wins out over reservations, and you agree to meet her on the Island in a few weeks time.
All through the flight there, you try to prepare yourself for what might be waiting for you when you get off the plane: will a strange looking female person that vaguely resembles Brandon be greeting you, or someone who looks a lot like Brandon in drag? Will you be able to handle the differences? You start wondering whether or not you should have reconsidered this trip. However, once you get off the plane, an absolutely drop-dead GORGEOUS dark-haired beauty launches herself out of the crowd and wraps her arms around you, and laughs in a beautiful melodic voice "Hey stranger! Is everything alright? You look like you've just seen a ghost!"
Suddenly, your mind starts catching up to your body, and you realize that you find your old friend's new form VERY attractive, and new concerns and possibilities and questions regarding the week begin to emerge...
Here is the second:
After you and Brandon went off to different colleges, you and Brandon stayed in somewhat closer contact than in the previous scenarios, remaining friends and visiting one another on occasion. Both of you tried dating college, with mixed results, and both of you were coming off of long recoveries from particularly heartbreaking breakups when Brandon suggested that the two of you run off to Ibiza together for spring break. On the verge of saying 'fuck it!' and giving up on dating all together, you decide some time away might be exactly what you need, and you and Brandon meet up on the Island and hug like old friends.
Later that night, after unpacking in your adjoining suites and changing your flight outfit for more casual beach-lounging attire, you and Brandon go out and get really trashed, drinking like you were never allowed to do when you were friends in high school, and staggering back into your room sometime just before dawn. Brandon starts to say goodnight to you, but feeling a little lonely and a little horny and VERY drunk, you grab him and unthinkingly kiss him before sending him off.
The next day, Brandon is unusually quiet, withdrawn and pensive, and you feel bad. You know you should not have kissed him. Finally, as you feared, Brandon brings up his continuing feelings for you, and you regretfully tell him again what you told him 7 years ago -- that you're not very into guys. You're not entirely opposed on a sexual level, maybe, but you're not interested romantically. Brandon sighs, saddened, and wanders off, leaving you alone on the beach for the rest of the day to feel sad, lonely, and regretful about kissing him the night before.
Just as you head back to your room to freshen up for dinner, however, Brandon pops in on you with a bag of pills in one hand and a determined expression on his face. Half-dressed and a little shocked and flustered, you try to kick him out, but he instantly starts launching into his explanation: the pills in his hand are X-change pills, designed to turn any regular guy into a sexy, gorgeous girl for a predetermined period of time, and Brandon bought them with the crazy notion to take some and to see if -- as two girls -- there might be chemistry between them where none existed now.
... Or... was it really so crazy? Despite telling him it was, the wheels in your head instantly began turning...
I would like this story to be a fun, passionate romance. I would prefer that you play a character who romantically meshes with the character I will create for Brandon/Vanessa -- which we can discuss together. If the initial rp - a single encounter, or perhaps more - is enjoyable for both of us, I am open to continuing into a longer storyline.
If you would like to write this story with me, I have an appearance in mind for your character already, based on this picture of 'Vanessa' and your character together:
