Safer Spaces by Lauren (R)

Categories: AU, Friendship, Romance, Transgender,
Length: Short (1.5k)

Summary: For some people there's no such thing as a safe space in the world, only a safer one. It's easier to make a space safer with help.

(Written for the 'genderbend' square for trope_bingo. Not Rule 63. It's more complicated than that.)

Review: This has been on my too rec list for a long time. Honestly I'd thought that I'd already recced it. Chalk it up to my dodgy memory.
This is a lovely, short story where Penny, Raj, and Sheldon find a safe place in each other. The three of them are all a little bit more themselves then they are in canon. There are some tough bits, where the rest of the Big Bang cast aren't great at handling trans people, but the ending is sweet enough to make up for it.
