Rented


“You’ve got to be kidding me! Not again!”

Seth screamed as he slouched down putting his hand on his hip. Two months ago he had signed up for a service that would pay him a hefty fee if he offered his body to be rented at any time for any length. The company told him that very few people rented them out and generally not for very long. No harm was allowed to be done to the rented body, and Seth would be in the renters body until the time was up. Very few people used the service, so it would be like getting a free paycheck for doing nothing. Seth was quick to sign, but his body got picked quickly. For the past two months, he had been inside the body of a middle aged, overweight housewife. Only five minutes after getting his body back, he was rented out again, causing his screams. But as he checked out his waifishly model-like body this time, he wanted to take back those words. He had lucked out, but he couldn’t imagine why a woman this hot would ever want to give up her body, or why she would want to live as him!

Hand me down


Henry’s family wasn’t rich. While other kids got cars on their 16th birthday to drive to school, Henry still had to take the bus. While other kids got new clothes, Henry got Good Will and hand-me-downs. Things didn’t exactly change after the Great Shift, but Henry felt more embarrassed than ever. He had ended up in the body of his classmate, Nadine. She only wore dresses, which she handed over to Henry’s family now that they no longer fit her. Good Will was cleaned out, which meant Henry had few choices for fashion on his first day back to high school.

Smile

Ernest paused for a moment to stare at his reflection before getting into his car. He smiled; he smiled every time he saw himself since the Great Shift. Of course, he had plenty to smile about thanks to the world-wide bodyswap. He had gone from being a rather homely man to a beautiful and fashionable woman. He imagined he did better than average thanks to the Shift, and he was thankful everyday for the new body.

Green Lantern


When Hal Jordan received the green ring, he was told that he could make anything he imagined become reality. It took him a little while to get used to it. He’d use the ring to make a green shield to protect himself from bullets or imagine a gun to fight a criminal. But he wondered if the ring only worked externally. He thought of himself transforming into a woman, and soon his masculine body became very feminine and shapely. He smiled as he thought about how truly interesting the power of the Green Lantern could be; he was only limited by the power of his imagination and he was about to let it run wild...

Trying


Ryan had stolen Julia’s body just a few hours ago. But if he was going to successfully steal her life and convince anyone that he was really her, he’d have to learn to walk in high heeled shoes. Julia rarely wore anything else. Ryan was trying really hard to get used to them, but so far was having no luck. He had to prop himself up just to keep from falling down. This was not going to be easy, but he was sure that after a few more tries he could get it right.

Celebrity


When Bill found the MAU device, he thought of a quick money making scheme. If a local business wanted a celebrity for a grand opening or special event, he would use the device and alter himself and make the appearance. He’d charge a fee much lower than the celebrity, but still pretty hefty for Bill. But then it stopped working, and Bill found himself stuck in one particular celebrity’s body. Considering he could no longer offer up the celebrity of one’s choice, his fee went down. Plus, he felt quite upset about the body he was stuck in...certainly not his favorite celebrity...

Over the next few weeks, Chuck had really gotten used to being in Diana’s body. Diana, meanwhile, was happy to play the role of “Daddy,” which meant she had to play with everything he did, including tinkering with the bodyswitching machine. Of course, Diana may have had her father’s body and her brain had quickly matured, but she still did not have his genius. Sparks starting flying out. Chuck heard an explosion and ran down out of curiosity. The machine forced Chuck’s soul right out of Diane’s body, but it didn’t return him to his own. The malfunctioning device shot Chuck’s soul clear across town, landing him in a stranger’s body. The speed was so quick and disorienting that Chuck quickly fell to the ground with his new body. Within a few moments, it was like Chuck’s mind rebooted. He no longer thought of playtime, but instead he was able to calculate complex equations in his head and ponder his scientific research on physics. His theory was successful: getting out of his young daughter’s body brought back his knowledge. But now he had to get back to the machine!
