Test


Hiro hadn’t quite perfected his latest invention yet. The intention was to be able to turn one self into an exact duplicate of another person. He had used himself s a test subject for the transformation and secretly aiming the device at his neighbor as the person to be copied. For starters, the triggering seemed off, and instead of hitting his muscle-bound neighbor, he ended up targeting the super-model-esque woman he had brought home for the evening. Even then, the transformation wasn’t perfect. It did transform into a woman with her gorgeous proportions, but he still had many elements of himself. Instead of being the blonde-haired, blue-eyed beauty his neighbor had over, he looked like the Asian version of her. He still needed his glasses too. It was a start, but he still had much work to do. Of course, the first thing he needed to work on was a way to undo the transformation.

Silly


Arthur had always found his sister to be a bit of a pain with horrid taste. When he decided to attend her wedding, his plan was simply to sit in the back and laugh quietly to himself about how gaudy the entire thing was. His plan had to change when the Great Shift struck a week before the wedding. Despite everyone being in new bodies, his sister insisted on things going on as scheduled. Of course, many guests canceled (or simply couldn’t be found) including many of the bridesmaids. However, it seemed that Arthur had swapped into a body that was just the right size to make up for one of the missing bridesmaids. His sister demanded that he squeeze himself into one of the pink dresses. He felt so silly; this thing looked like it should be at a prom and not a wedding. He felt stupid even just trying it on. Then there was getting his hair and makeup done with his sister, which made him feel even sillier. It was hard to hold back the laughs, especially with his sister now inside the body of a burly 50 year old male biker in a refitted mermaid gown. He may have felt silly, but she looked the part!

Learning


“You should probably learn how to do things like this on your own,” Michelle told Ethan, “I can’t be doing your makeup every single time you have an event.”

“I know. I know.” Ethan sighed, “I promise I’ll figure it out soon, but in the meantime, thank you so much for helping me with this. There are just so many things about being a woman I’m getting used to after the Great Shift.”

“Trust me. I understand. There are things about being a guy that are equally unfamiliar to me...”

Best Dinner Ever


Xander was finally starting to see the upside of swapping bodies with his mom. At first, he was bummed. She was making him do all sorts of chores, like grocery shopping for dinner. But he soon realized that he didn’t need to get the items on his mother’s list; he could get whatever he wanted instead! He stopped at the candy aisle first; throwing handfuls of bags into the cart. Next, he went for the sugary cereals. He still needed to get some soda and ice cream to round it off. With ingredients like these, he was sure that he was going to make the best dinner ever!

Pick

Nick remembered when getting dressed in the morning was easy. He’s just reach into his closet and put on whatever he pulled out. That was before the Great Shift placed him into the body of a woman. Now the decision was agony. Did this top go with this skirt? Which shoes went with this outfit? Did his make up match? Prior to the Shift, he had wondered why women took so much time getting ready; now it all made so much sense. There were just so many decisions to be made. At the same time, he knew he had to be thankful. The Great Shift had deposited him into a completely fantastic body, and even when he didn’t make a good fashion pick, he knew his body looked great.

Not Uncommon


“Come on, Cara, you can’t be serious. You can’t really dress like this on a daily basis.”

“It is not uncommon, Mr. Wong. You are quite aware of what I did for a living before you swapped bodies with me thanks to your crazy invention. It isn’t my fault that you couldn’t get it to swap us back.”

“I told you, it will be fixed soon --”

“Yes, and until it is, you will be doing as I say with my body. And in return, I will treat your body with respect as well. I do expect full payment for each and every hour that we are stuck like this.”

“Yes. All the more reason I should be taking time off from your work to fix the machine.”

“No time off. You must do as I say, remember?”
