Here are some of the preliminary details for this year's entrant: (ETA: The intended novel has changed. Please read on!)
Working Title- ChangeChild
Genre- Fairytale romance
Setting- The land of Sancia (reminiscent of Victorian-era Europe)
Major Characters- Cecile (suh-CEE-luh): (Initially) The shy eight-year old son of one of the ruling nobles who is held somewhat in shame by his family because of his secret dream
Nietche (NEE-chee-uh): The nine-year-old sole heir of the Sancia royal family, a friendly and outgoing child who is spoiled and adored by everyone at court but whose caregivers wish she would act more appropriately and girlishly.
Secondary Characters:The King and Queen of Sancia: Nietche's grandparents and the much-beloved rulers of Sancia
The Duke and Duchess of Nomentine: Nietche's aunt and uncle who have raised her since the death of her parents when she was four.
Emelline and Davide: Cecile's parents and heads of the one of the ruling noble families
Possible Warnings- This story WILL deal with: politics, the arranged engagement of a minor to a much older character for a brief period of time, gender dysphoria, and, eventually, some unusual sexual situations to a small degree. There will be no graphic depictions of sex of violence, but if any of the above themes bother you, this year's NaNo novel is not for you.
