Early


Jeffrey wasn’t quite sure why he woke up each morning at 5AM to jog around Exchange Island. After all, he was only in this body temporarily; he had no reason to maintain its great shape for the brief time he’d have it. Still, he had woken up early every day this week for a run, and he planned to do it every day until he left. As he paused to watch the amazing sunrise, he realized why he did it. He did simply because in this body he was able to do it. This body was in such great shape that he was able to run for miles without getting winded or tired. He probably ran to plenty of places on this island that few ever got to explore with their borrowed bodies. It would be a shame when he had to leave this beautiful scenery when his vacation was over; it’d be an even bigger shame that he’d have to give up this beautiful body.

Reservation


Gordon had a hard time scoring a reservation to this restaurant; it had to be scheduled over a year ago. There wasn’t going to be anything stopping him from going, having a good time, and eating whatever he wanted. That included the Great Shift, which dumped him into Emily’s body. He didn’t care about what the large meal might do to Emily’s figure or the fact that she was a vegetarian. As he dug into his meal, he smiled.

New (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.

Karl couldn’t believe what had just happened to him -- he was now a chick. Granted, a beautiful chick, but a chick none the less! He wasn’t exactly pleased about it. He just hoped that whatever had happened to him would be reversed in due course. Of course, as it turned out, there would be no reversing the Great Shift. Karl’s new feminine body would be his for the rest of his life.

New


Karl could see the bright light from miles away over the horizon, but it was so quick and so massive that he couldn’t do anything to avoid it. When it hit him, it felt like a ton of bricks knocking him to his feet. The wind was knocked out of him and he felt woozy, but he began to pick himself up. The first thing he noticed was that he was now inside instead of out. At first, he wondered if he had been brought to a hospital, but then he thought he’d wake up in a bed rather than on the floor. That’s when he noticed the odd feeling of his body. Of course, the body he now had didn’t belong to him and describing himself with words like “his” and “him” now felt odd as well -- the body he had was clearly a woman’s. Karl had no idea that the light that did this to him was a world wide phenomenon that would come to be known as the Great Shift.

Equations (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.

Austin stood, wobbling a little in the high heels that were now on his feet. He wondered how women wore these things; then he gulped. He was the one wearing them for the time being. It started to sink in that he was a woman for the time being. He realized that if he had any hope of undoing this, he needed to get back to the lab. Then again, he wasn’t sure exactly what part of his experiment had gone wrong in a way that would cause a body swap. It still seemed all so unlikely. Then again, the obvious evidence of what happened was right in front of him. He walked carefully across campus, not wanting to trip in these shoes. He attempted to observe side conversations, seeing if anyone else was swapped. They didn’t seem to be. Then again, he realized that it was entirely possible that they just weren’t mentioning it, not wanting people to think they were crazy. It did seem crazy, after all. As he continued to observe people on campus, he started to size them up, considering what would’ve happened if he swapped with someone else instead of this woman. Honestly, he realized this body was probably on the high end of the spectrum for those he could’ve swapped with. She was quite good looking. He would’ve preferred to stay a man; heck, he would’ve preferred to not swap with anyone at all. But if it had to be a woman, this wasn’t that bad. And if he couldn’t find a way to reverse it back at the lab, this wasn’t exactly a terrible body to be stuck in either...

Equations


Austin had been working on the thesis for his doctoral degree in physics, and after running the numbers for years, he was nearing what he was sure was a breakthrough. It seemed that under the right conditions, light could have substantial mass. He was eager to use the university’s labs to put his theory to a test. He took great care in creating the right conditions, then he activated a dim light. But it soon got out of control and the light grew larger and brighter. Due to the light having mass, he was pushed to his feet; the light was so bright, he was blinded. He couldn’t describe how terrified he was. Then the pressure of the light’s mass subsided and the brightness faded. The world was coming into focus again. Austin looked around. He was still in a different campus building a short distance from the lab. It was a seemingly unexpected result of his experiment. Then as he tried to stand up, he noticed another unexpected result. The body he was now in -- it wasn’t his. He was now in another person’s body -- a woman’s body! She was likely another student at the school. Was she now in his body? Or someone else’s? How many people had his experiment affected? And how to fix this? He hadn’t theorized anything in regards to body swapping with his equations!

Warning


Michael really wished he was able to read these signs. When he first encountered them, he assumed they said “Do not enter.” However, the last time he even stood close to one, a strange force emitted from the enclosure and caused him to swap bodies with a woman nearby. She yelled at him (likely in the same language as the sign) before running of with his body. Now he thought they may say “Danger” or “Keep at least 50 feet away.” Yet he approached close again. He hoped to recreate the swap that initially happened. He was pretty sure that he wasn’t very likely to get his own body back, but maybe he could at least swap with a guy. He’d only been a woman for about 20 minutes now, but he was pretty sure that he wasn’t enjoying it. Women’s clothing just seemed quite uncomfortable. How tight were these pants? And the shoes? Not to mention the constriction feeling of a bra around his chest. But he stood there for quite some time and nothing happened.
