Oh hey, maybe now that it's LATE FEBRUARY I should do my Yuletide reveal post???

I wrote for The Left Hand of Darkness, part of the Hainish Cycle by Ursula K. Le Guin, aka possibly my favorite book series of all time. (Interestingly, it's actually one of my least favorite books in the series; not because I don't like it, but because most of the others are EVEN BETTER.)

Title: The Right Hand of Light
Fandom: The Left Hand of Darkness (Hainish Cycle)
Details: Genly Ai/Therem Harth. What Genly did not tell.
Notes: Written for [profile] balder12 in Yuletide 2012. Thanks to [personal profile] care_says for help brainstorming! And many boundless thanks to Ursula K. Le Guin, for creating these worlds, for talking frankly about feminism and things she'd change in her own books, and for the interview which gave me the image of Estraven with his children.

What you need to know if you've never read the book: Genly's a human ambassador on a world where everyone is genderless except for a period once a month when they go into kemmer (think pon farr or heat: a Must Have Sex situation) and can become either male or female.
