Acid Rain

While humanity always had some concern for pollution and acid rain, they were simply not prepared the ultimate consequences of their actions. The rain became so polluted that it wasn’t just acid, it was transformative. A single drop of falling rain could transform a person in any number of ways. Showers could shut down cities in mere minutes, with people shuttering themselves in buildings and cars. Still, from time to time, someone would get caught outside. Paul was one of those unlucky people. The umbrella he carried did nothing to stop the water from hitting him. He cursed as he felt his insides rearrange; there wasn’t anything on the weather report this morning about rain! A few moments later, his change was complete. He looked down at himself and he realized he was one of the lucky ones. He had only changed genders. Other people had become different animals or (in some extreme cases) things like trees or rocks. The other piece of good news for Paul was that he could now go out in the rain without further being transformed, though it was often a very lonely world out there in the rain.

Another Chance

Trevor ran through the events of that day in his mind ever since it happened. It started with meeting the woman of his dreams and her having no interest in him. Then he found a magic spell he thought would make her love him; instead it swapped their bodies. The weird part was that now the woman in Trevor’s body thought that she was always him. In a way, he had a second chance, but Trevor could never see himself being with another guy...even if he was in the body of a woman and even if that guy was him.

He wondered if he had just accepted if the swap would have reversed itself. Instead, he was now stuck in this woman’s body. With Trevor in control, he acted far less feminine than she did before he met her. He slouched about, avoiding skirts and dressed. He never felt comfortable in this new body, but he had no way to fix things.

Astronomical

“Do you see anything, Professor?” Carol asked.

“Nothing,” The professor sighed, “You kids are lucky. It’s unlikely anyone else would have believed you, but forty years ago I saw and experienced the same astronomical phenomenon that you kids did. I ended up switching bodies with my future wife for a week before we found it again. As the years passed, we told ourselves that we must have imagined those memories.”

Ron put a hand on his hip. He didn’t have the patience for Professor Conrad’s babbling, and as a graduate student he certainly didn’t like being referred to as a “kid.”

But he held his mouth. He didn’t want to piss off his astronomy teacher. After all, so far he was the only one who believed them when they talked about the strange burst in the sky that had switched the pair’s bodies. He also seemed to have a bit of experience with it. However, so far, Ron also didn’t think he had been much help. After all, he was still stuck in Carol’s body right now, and she was still in his.

Liquid (Part 3)

Click here for Part 1.
Click here for Part 2.
After several days of working out in his new body, Mark couldn’t believe it, but he was actually starting to enjoy working out! The first few days, he had forced himself to do it, knowing he had to maintain this great body, but as time passed, he started to simply look forward to the exercise itself, instead of seeing it as a chore. He was starting to get more and more used to his new body as well. There was something he missed about feeling like his body was new and unfamiliar. He still enjoyed his new body, but he had gotten used to it. His breasts no longer felt like foreign objects on his chest, things like shaving his legs felt routine instead of exciting. Granted, he still enjoyed his new body, but it felt less like a “new” body and more just his body. This feeling made it ever more curious that exercise actually excited him now. It hadn’t just become another routine, it became a thrill!

By Design

Tracey had injected Carl with a drug that would leave his body paralyzed for several hours. He was aware but helpless as she moved her invention atop him. She was eager to use him as her guinea pig. She aligned everything perfectly before turning it on. If everything wasn’t just right, the machine wouldn’t work; that was by design. She needed to be sure Carl wouldn’t be able to use the device himself, and she believed she made it just complicated enough to prevent him from doing so. After all, once she used the device to steal his body, she’d be the one paralyzed. What good would her body swapping machine be if her victim could just switch back? She smiled, thinking about how nice it would feel to be a man. She knew men had all the power; they were treated better. She mumbled about it under her breath, inadvertently revealing her plans to Carl.

Poor Carl was aware of everything happening; he was just in no position to stop it. He couldn’t move a muscle. Then the device activated, and he suddenly found himself in Tracey’s body. He could smell the perfume she had put on that morning; he could taste her lipstick; he felt the weight of her breasts and the tight tug of her bra straps. He looked down at his own body as he put his hands on the machine. He had her mumblings, but had he heard enough to be able to operate this thing and get back to his own body? He made a few attempts to no avail. As time passed, he notice his body begin to stir. If he couldn’t use the device to switch back, he could at least ensure Tracey wouldn’t get away. He quickly found some rope and tied her down. He didn’t know what he would do to force her to switch back, but he certainly wasn’t going to let her get away with his body!

The Perfect Wave

Carter had surfed professionally before retiring at the age of 30. He had been good enough to earn enough money to never have to work another day in his life. Instead, he set about pursuing his dream of finding the perfect wave. He had heard rumors that such a wave existed at Bikini Beach; however, the other rumors of the beach kept most surfers away. Carter shrugged. So he’d be transformed into a woman while there? So what? It seemed a small price to pay. Unlike most men who visited, he ignored the throngs of women in skimpy bikinis and set his sights on the ocean. The first few waves were good, but nothing great. Then it happened: the perfect wave. He quickly went to the office to buy a lifetime pass. He knew it meant he’d become a woman permanently, but losing his manhood seemed like a small price in exchange for finding what he had been seeking for years.

Drive (Part 1)

Michael had been driving down the interstate when a huge flash appeared before his eyes. The next thing he knew he parked in a lot. The keys were still in this ignition and the car was still on. Initially, he couldn’t put together what had happened. He only imagined that he had blacked out while driving then somehow miraculously pulled over and managed to park his car. It didn’t take him long to realize that this wasn’t his old beat up car. This car was really fancy -- way more than he could ever afford. He worried that when he blacked out, he had somehow stolen it! His heart started to race. The beating called attention to his chest. That’s when he noticed something extremely different. This not only wasn’t his car; this was also not his body! As unbelievable as it was, he must have swapped bodies with the owner of this car! And the owner of this car was a woman! He reached one hand up to the unfamiliar weight on his chest before quickly removing it. He didn’t yet want to even think about sending a hand down below the belt.

His turned off the car’s MP3 player and switched to the radio. There were panicked reports indicating that he clearly wasn’t the only one who had switched bodies. In fact, the reports were stating that anywhere between 70-99% of the world had switched. He wasn’t quite sure what to do next.
