Finished The Left Hand of Darkness over Thanksgiving, and now obviously I need a hockey AU. Obviously Gethen has hockey - another name for the planet is Winter, after all! A bunch of players of indeterminate sex 26 days out of the month and male or female the other four, at random, when they're in kemmer.

Possibly the very best part of this plan is that I can have female hockey players on my team, and it won't even be notable. None of the players will have an sexual characteristics 80% of the time anyway, so it will be completely unremarkable if some of their names are Julie and Hilary instead of James and Thomas.

Obviously that other 20% will also feature in the story. Obviously a kemmer house must be visited at least once (and bless Ursula Le Guin for coming back twenty years later to write the salacious expose fic to her work of Serious SF Literature). Probably a pair will vow kemmer to each other at some point.

I wonder if there's a "Alternate Universe - Left Hand of Darkness" tag on AO3...

oooh!!

This needs to be the next fandom trend after a/b/o. I am now imagining Star Trek LHoD ensemble fic and it is a glorious thing.

:DDD

When I have time again and also have learned a little bit more about female hockey players, I really think I'm going to give this a try, at least for something short.
