Arc 3: Stella & Gale
Gale, a masculine cis-gendered lesbian working as a tattoo artist and a small-time rockstar, leads the hopelessly heartbroken life of a bachelor and struggles with her watered down dreams. She crosses paths with Stella, an ambitious fashion-major trans woman who has just finally found courage in her ability to "pass" to try the lesbian dating scene instead of the safe-haven of gay men she'd been accustomed to but now is finding herself alienated in because of her changing identity.
They're a truly star-crossed couple, but they both realize that it takes a lot more to completely trust and commit yourself to someone while fighting your own inner demons and limitations as a human being.
Stella and Gale are about identity, gender, and what it means to be who you want to be.
So there was this super great prompt floating around;

Theodora: Dora is slightly reluctant magical girl, a history major, trans*woman, and a walking encyclopedia. Hardly ever smiles.
Linette: From another time, a medieval knight-in-training that loves adventure and naturally inclined to help people. She falls in love with a grumpy witch.

Shawntay: Shawn's a solitary, tech-savvy computer wizz who works at a computer parts shop- Discovers computer chips that give her cyber-mech abilities and armor. But what about the other chips? oooh!
Wynona: A laid-back, vain, intimidating beauty. Doesn't typically throw around her temper but is quite proud. She likes wine a little too much and it ends up giving her an ability she never expected.
Irinora: [Giant from this fantasy race- her element is water.] She's a little scary and hardly ever seen, nevermind heard. Not much is known about her...
Teresa: [Apple Tree Hamadryad, "Monster High fancharacter.] She's very go-green and is also rather tall, at about 6'5".
Danica: [Lamia] her family is from Egypt. A fierce bellydancer and a bit of a maneater; good friends with Nadia.
Elise: Tormented by night-terrors, paranoid, and a little bit on the edge. Would really just like some friends. Can see "shadows."
Rorie: A quiet, to-herself person. Avid appreciator of music, oftentimes found with earbuds, plugged in. Has ice powers and knows how to use them, though.
Sorrel: [eagle harpy] a steadfastly loyal friend, and a big sister personality. Very protective of those in her Nest, and proudly bears the law-enforcement position of Valkyrie.

Kristyn: An extremely frail/ill girl but wise past her years. Has an endless fascination with astrology and gains superpowers from another planet.
Abagael: No-nonsense and street-smart. Intensely protective of her friends despite struggling with her own inner demons. Dyes her hair far too much, which inspired her younger sister Natifah to do the same.

Quinn: Japanese-American. Suffers from a little bit of bad luck, but works hard for her dad and little brother despite that. She's a stick that could use a good yank out of the mud.
Nadia: [succubus] Fashion-model in the making- sharp and intimidating as she is gorgeous, but she's honestly mild and relaxed about most things. It's just her intense face. Good friends with Danica.
Belle: [TMM fancharacter] A to-be science major wholly invested in entomology. A bit of an oddball, lovely and eccentric, but probably more observant than what would make you comfortable to know.
Avril: Grumpy gus cybergoth girl opinionated to her grave. However, she's levelheaded and her reasoning is sound if you can get past her bark and general meanness. Also gains superpowers from another planet.
