What do you think about that?  Say, a superwoman in a fantasy world or a space opera setting?  Or a spy story, or historical fiction? (Etc, etc.)

Or a young adult sci-fi romance? Or a gumshoe vampire story? Or a tale of revenge? Or a horror story? Or a succubus exorcism tale? Or a story about fame?

Drat! My secret is revealed!

I am pretty sure there are examples for all of those to be found in the library. Anterions Sebia comes to mind in terms of fantasy with a superwoman, but it's not alone. And I know Geekseven had a spy story (James Bond variation) and historical fiction with superwomen covered, but he has removed his stuff here.

There was also Super Secret Agent by JKIJ , which is literally a supergirl Bond movie.

I've been writing stuff that crosses over Science Fiction with superwomen for 30+ years.  

Recent examples being EarthRise and SuperTroopers. 

(But I admit that some people don't recognize Science Fiction unless it's derived from a major movie or TV show -- what I call SciFi. My take on stories is more hard Science Fiction with superwomen than a tweaked fan-fiction kind of SciFi.)

One of these days, I'm going to write a series that takes off from where Firefly TV ended, but with either River, Zoe or Inara gaining superstrength/invulnerability-grade superpowers. Sorry Kaylee, I like you as you are. Or maybe Inara being replaced by a Velorian Companion. (Or maybe Saffron returns with those powers!)

But that's heavy lifting to get all the character portrayals and the mixed Chinese dialog right. 

But that would be my ultimate idea of mix-genre fan-fiction.

Lyta, the telepath from Babylon 5, gained super mental powers after visiting Vorlon space.

When G7 left this community a couple of years ago he asked for all of his stories to be deleted. He also closed his DA page and his personal website.
