Well, since I got called out...

- This makes me think of books I've read which take place dream world that's symbolizing the real world in parallel -- Iain Banks's "The Bridge" is an example that comes to mind (uh, spoilers, I guess.) Also a YA (and I mean like classic YA, Beverly Cleary tier sort of stuff, not Hunger Games) book I read when I was a little kid about a boy who writes a SF story to deal with the stresses of school bullying and incorporates the other kids into it as characters; there's no way I could ever remember its title of course.

- Is the fictional world "real" under its own power, or does it just exist in one author's imagination?

- As far as making Min's author a hermaphrodite -- I'm not going to tell you that you can't, obviously you can do whatever you please, it's just that the number of people who fit the category enough for it to be physically obvious is microscopically small so doing that would jump out pretty dramatically. It'd be on par with making the author a Siamese twin.

Percolate on what brings you joy! And no burning out. Take a nap with the little one if at all possible.
