Dare to be a Teen - Mainline #1 "Meet My Hybrid Girl"
When the heroine in our fantasy story is a hybrid teenage girl who dares to venture into a magical or supernatural world, we get a Young Adult Fiction or YA story that's very imaginative with a mix of many elements.
Set primarily in or around a school of the paranormal and the privileged, we the audience of YA is often drawn to these stories where we can relive our glory years through the lens of the protagonists.
Our three suggested mainlines are "After the Breakup", "Taming a Playboy", and "Secret Lover" but they are by no means the only subject matter for such an inclusive and diverse theme for the LGBT+ community. Love is Love and it can transcend all things big and small.

Brief Introduction to “Girl Power”
Powerful, assertive female protagonists are a major factor in many successful female-oriented works at the moment. Who doesn’t love a KICKASS Heroine?
Mainline 1: Rebirth of the Heroine
One Must of this mainline is that the story should begin with a rebirth plot and show the growth of the Heroine.
In this type of story, the Heroine usually has a previous life and somehow starts a new life by the “rebirth”. Her knowledge, skills, or experience of the previous life could be reserved and become an advantage in the new life.
Here are some examples:
*Body swap: A noble princess woke up to find that she had become the lowest slave. Without the status of a princess, how would she deal with this hard life? How would she get out of the predicament she is in and regain her former glory?
*Back to her past: The female protagonist inherited a vast amount of wealth as a part of her arranged marriage, but then she was murdered. Unexpectedly, she returned to the past with the memory of her previous life. How would she face the person who killed her? Would she choose to be weak and endure her hatred? Or would she take revenge on those who harmed her?
*Traveling to the future: The female protagonist was a medieval witch who traveled through time after an accident and arrived in the 21st century. How would she react to modern technology, clothing, and mannerisms? What adventures would she go through with her unique appearance and powerful abilities
Mainline 2: Chasing Her Apollo
Apollo here stands for the Heroine’s love (the Hero). If you choose this mainline, you should sculpt your heroine’s bravery and dominance in a romantic relationship in the story.
When talking about romance, many would have the picture that men pursue while women wait and hesitate. Why can’t women take the initiative? Ladies, time for a change!
Examples for this mainline:
*She was a royal princess, destined to marry the prince. In an encounter, she fell in love with a simple knight, who rejected her love because of their disparity. Would the princess be brave enough to break the shackles of the identity gap and pursue her passion?
*She was a wealthy lady from a big family in her previous life, but she was killed when her fiancé and best friend betrayed her. A man who had been deeply disgusted by her, however, tried to save her. When she was reborn into the past, she swore that she would cherish the man who loved her more than life itself.
When writing under “Girl Power” themes, you might use the following tags：
kickass heroine, dominant, reincarnation/transmigration, time-travel, body exchange/body swap
