Unplug

Not long after the first bodyswapping device was invented, the religious right made their move to outlaw the technology. Still, many operated underground swapping labs to perform the procedure. Sam Wallace operated one such lab in his basement. His usually clients were old women with money desperate to be young swapping with young women desperate to be wealthy. He had strapped his latest two clients into their seats and initiated the process. A surge hit and he ran to unplug the power. As he did so, a strange jolt of energy shot from the cable, turning his own body into an exact double of the young woman in the process. He supposed it wasn't so bad. After all, it could've turned into a double of the old woman instead!

Silence

"Holy cow! We've all switched bodies!" Joe exclaimed.

"Well, that's nothing for you and Mike," Ted retorted, "You guys are practically like twins! I wound up in Debbie's body! Now I've got blonde hair and tits! I'm probably going to get hit on by guys! Gross! Plus, I'm barely able to stand in these heels!"

"You think you have it bad," an enraged Debbie interupted, "I'm in your short, fat, and disgusting body, Ted! I want my own body back!"

"We all do," Mike finally interjected, "But do any of us know how we get back to our own bodies?"

Silence.

Average


Joseph looked at the distant mirror on the other side of the room. It was the first time he had seen his reflection since the Great Shift. He knew he was a woman, but now he knew what he looked like. The body wasn't fat, but it certainly wasn't hot. The same could be said for his new face--it was just sort of plain. Of all the people he could've wound up in the body of, he ended up as someone rather average...

Seeing Santa


Scott Clemens wasn't going to let the first Christmas after the Great Shift be ruined. A lot of things changed in the weeks and months after the worldwide bodyswapping incident, but he wasn't going to let it ruin the tradition of taking his two boys to see Santa. Scott's older son, Rob (age 7), let Donnie (age 5), sit on Santa's lap first, as the two kids and their dad posed for a photo. Donnie was so excited to see Santa again. He told the bearded man that he had been a very good boy this year and that the only thing he wanted was his former body back. The guy playing Santa tried to explain that some things were even out of Santa's power. Rob, on the other hand, felt like he was getting a little too old for Santa. However, considering the boys new bodies, maybe they both were a little too old for Santa...

Screaming


"Alright, you stupid bitch," Tony screamed in Jill's face, "I want my body back and I want it NOW!"

Jill seemed to stare off into the distance, mostly ignoring Tony, but she calmly responded, "You aren't getting it back, and from my perspective these days you're the one who looks like a stupid bitch. You got the body for it at least."

Gone wrong


Kyle had signed up for the latest batch of experiments the psychology department at his college was conducting, though he had to admit to being a little freaked out when they told him they were experimenting with brain swapping. Still, the money was good enough that he couldn't say no...even when he found out the other participant was his psycho, nagging ex-girlfriend. The thought of being in her body for the entire week of the test gave him chills, but things got interesting when she proposed a bet. Whoever came crawling back to the lab first begging for their own body back would be the loser and would have to do anything of the winner's choosing. Kyle agreed, knowing he wouldn't cave no matter what. However, neither really would be able to participate in the bet after an accident in the swapping procedure occured. Both Kyle and his ex's brains were merged into one body--her body. Kyle was mostly in control, but he could feel his ex's constant nagging in the back of his head. He'd throw some clothes on in the morning, then be upset with himself for picking out something that made him look fat. He'd be at a bar and yel at himself for drinking so much. He wanted to shoot himself. He had dumped her to get away from this sort of thing, and now it was struck constantly inside his head. He hoped those geeks could sort this out soon!

Locker room (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
In Principal Lewis's haste, he had run into the men's locker room instead of the women's. Perhaps the reality of being in the body of the slutty student hadn't quite sunk in yet. He was soon surrounded by half-naked men. Many of them had been women before the Shift and were quite curious about their new bodies. In addition, many of these women had been students familiar with Kelli's reputation around the school--she wasn't the type of girl to say no. But with Principal Lewis now inside of her body, he was screaming for them to stay away.
