Engaged (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
The exercise machines kept making Malcolm feel uncomfortable, so he tried switching to something much more lo-tech.

It turned out that the weights weren’t much better. He started by picking out a size that was much too heavy for Amber’s body to handle. He needed to scale back. Even once he found a weight he could manage to lift, he still wasn’t comfortable. Again, Amber’s assets were still get getting in the way -- or mostly just feeling like a hindrance. But he wasn’t going to give up. He had told Amber he’d keep her body in shape, and he was going to find some way to do it!

Engaged (Part 1)

Amber came from a family of warlocks and witches. It was a tradition in her family for a couple to use a magic spell to switch bodies for a week between their engagement and wedding. When she explained this to her fiancee Malcolm, he almost didn’t believe her, but he had seen enough after dating a woman who dabbled in magic to not doubt her.

The swap was to ensure capatability and it often also helped with understanding, but Amber didn’t care too much about those. She knew she loved Malcolm. She told him that while he was in her body, he could mostly do anything he wanted. She’d take a vacation from her job; it would be easy. She did have a single condition, however. He would still have to go to the gym in order to make sure her body stayed in good shape. Malcolm didn’t object. After all, he wanted to have Amber’s body stay fit just as much as she did!

However, hitting the gym proved a bit more difficult than Malcolm had anticipated. Using many of the workout machines proved quite uncomfortable with the large breasts now hanging from his chest. He had never thought about how they might get in th way before, but now that they were attached to him, he was having trouble doing anything without them getting in the way!

Scholarship (Part 4)

“Jerry? Jerry!?” A voice called from behind. It had been a few weeks since he had even thought of himself by that name, so it took him some time before he turned around.

“My name is Emi-” He said as he turned around before he realized who he was talking to you, “Oh, it’s you.”

“Yeah,” Emily replied, “I was just curious how you are doing?”

“I haven’t really thought of it for the past few weeks. It’s been months now since it all happened, hasn’t it? Being Jerry feels like little more than a dream. It’s like I’ve always been Emily -- like I’ve always been you. I remember trying to fight it, but it all seems so silly to me now. I’ve continued my research into the material and have made additional breakthroughs.”

“Now, you’ve got to stop,” Emily insisted, “I know I felt like that before when I was you, but it’s wrong. It’s weird. You need to stop.”

“You’re just scared. And I remember that, but I see now that you were right. It’s not a big deal that I now have not just your body, but your personality, memories, and everything...”

Scholarship (Part 3)

Click here for Part 1.
Click here for Part 2.
Over the next few works, Jerry did everything he could to not lose himself and become Emily. He started by just trying to maintain who he was. He binge watched sports on television; he slacked and skipped as many classes as possible. Yet it wasn’t long before he found sports boring and he felt guilty about skipping class.

As time went on, his strategy changed. Instead of trying to hold onto himself, he just started trying to do the exact opposite of what Emily would do. He looked at her all-black wardrobe and went out and bought some floral dresses instead. He bought a pair of heels in an attempt to contrast her numerous sneakers. The outfits were all uncomfortable, but he was sure he never saw Emily wear anything like it. He was convinced he could fight it.

In reality, he was just exploring the feminine/girlie side of Emily’s personality that she often pushed aside. He wasn’t successfully fighting anything; it would only be a matter of time before he became Emily in not just body but also mind.

Scholarship (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
As soon as Jerry saw Emily open a door to the science building, a smile crept across his face. It was probably the only time he had smiled all week. He also managed a meek wave. Emily did wave back, but she wasn’t smiling. In fact, while Jerry was glad to see his own face again, the expression Emily was giving him caused concern. His smile soon faded.

“What’s wrong?” He asked as he approached.

“I just did a scan of my brain,” She sighed, “I’m afraid we’re still too unstable to switch back. But there’s good news; we might not have to swap back at all.” “What!?”

“See, our brains are still in the same state of flux as when we first swapped. In fact, our brains are adapting to our new bodies. We are slowly becoming who we appear to be. In a few more weeks, your brain will be just like mine was. You’ll just start thinking of yourself as Emily. You’ll have my intellegence, my likes, and even my memories. And I’l have yours. For all intents and purposes, it wil be like we never swapped at all.”

“So I’m going to become you?”

“When you think about it, you already are. If it’s bothering you now, when it’s done, I’ll probably be the one actually bothered by the experience. Or rather, this body wil be. I can explain it in more detail if you want.” “My head already hurts enough...”

Friday, March 16, 2018


Jerry sulked as he walked through the parking lot of the science building at the university. He couldn’t believe how he had gotten himself in this situation. His freshman year started off very promising with a full athletic scholarship, but low grades over the course of several semesters ended up putting him on academic probation. By junior year, they had fallen low enough to put his scholarship in jeopardy. The last thing he wanted was to be kicked out of school, so he signed up for some extra credit at the science department.

That’s where he met Emily. She was a quiet girl in the graduate program, who often wore all black, had glasses, and also extremely smart. She had gotten permission to give extra credit to someone for helping her test an invention she had created. When she explained she had made a machine that could swap bodies, Jerry was very apprehensive, but he knew he needed the extra credit.

And so that’s how he ended up swapping bodies with Emily. He begged to switch back right away, but Emily explained it would be dangerous to do so; the brains needed time to settle. They could swap back again after a week. Jerry didn’t like the idea of missing a week of practice, but knew that would be better than getting kicked out completely.

And now after a week as Emily, he stood outside texting her, asking to be let into the science building so that they could finally swap back to normal.

Within a few days, General Winslow was prepared to lead a team back onto the alien ship. They wasted no time using Gerald Clark’s plan to sneak in. David was impressed by his new body’s flexibility and used it to avoid traps and perils aboard the ship. He knew he should probably look on the bright side of having this body, as he was probably stuck with it. If they managed to kill the aliens, it would be unlikely they’d be able to figure out their advanced technology to swap back. And even if they did capture some of the aliens alive, they’d probably just refuse to swap any of them back.

David didn’t have much more time to think before he heard a gun cock. He turned to see a woman pointing a gun at him.

“Drop it, alien scumbag,” the woman said.

“Clark?” David asked, recognizing the phrase as something one of his colleagues had said ever since the ship first landed, “Is that you? It’s me; it’s Winslow.”

“Damn. They did this to you too?”

“I’m pretty sure they did this to all of us. But we’ve got to fight back. If I could just get back on that ship, I’ll certainly make them regret putting me in this body. I just can’t think of a way back onto the ship.”

“I can get us on, but first I need you to confirm you are who you say you are...”

Click here for Part 3.
General David Winslow took a moment to collect his thoughts. He was angry, but he needed to calm down and plan in order to figure an appropriate strategy. He held his gun by his side. His should probably first find the other people on the ship with him. They probably also were in the bodies of women -- though he saw bodies on the ship, he wasn’t sure if he’d recognize them. He’d need a way onto the alien ship as well; that could prove to be quite a challenge. So he might not be able to just show up there with guns blazing, but it was still nice to know that he wasn’t going to take being swapped into another body lying down! He was always known in the military for having a cool head and thinking logically; he wasn’t going to abandon that now.

Invitation (Part 3)

Click here for Part 2.
Well, General Winslow wasn’t about to let these body swapping aliens get away with it. If they thought putting him in this body was going to make him docile, they were mistaken. In fact, this body may have been a different gender, but it was also probably about 30 years younger than his own was. He not only had his years of experience, but he also now had a body youthful enough to take advantage of it. He grabbed the nearest weapon, ready to take up arms to protect both his country and his planet. There was no guarantee he’d be able to get his body back, but he could at least take down those damned aliens.

Sunday, March 11, 2018

Invitation (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
David tried to think back to being aboard the ship. Had he seen anything that gave him clues about why they did this? Had he overheard anything?

Sure enough, he began to put some pieces together. The aliens had seemed to be a male-dominated species to an extreme. The only female aliens he had seen were quite subservient. The thought sent chills up the general’s spine. If they thought humans treated females of the species in the same way, it was possible the aliens swapped David and the other men into women’s bodies for some sort of strategic advantage. Of course, that would also mean they would need such an advantage for some reason. Were they planning an invasion?

He remembered hearing one of the women scream about being abducted. Why abduct them? It seemed like an extra step. Why didn’t the aliens just swap with David and the others themselves? If they had body swapping technology, this would seem like a far superior way to achieve a goal of conquest. Then again, maybe it didn’t work cross-species. Or maybe the aliens just didn’t trust the humans with their alien bodies for some reason.

Invitation (Part 1)

When the alien ship first landed not far from the Pentagon, there was a lot of worry and fear running through the country. It hovered for weeks with seemingly no way to get inside until it finally transmitted an invitation.

General David Winslow was honored to be selected as a member of the military brass who would be meeting with the aliens. His ability to keep a cool head along with his openness and curiosity when the ship first landed lead to his selection. He was set to board the alien ship with other members of the military and a few politicians.

Seeing the ship open was awe inspiring, and seeing the technology inside was even more jaw dropping. The warm welcome didn’t last, however. In a matter of minutes, the humans were amushed. General Winslow tried to fight back, but he was quickly sedated.

He would phase in and out of consciousness, getting glimpses of what the aliens were up to, seeing a device that seemingly swapped the brains of two people.

It wasn’t until he became fully aware again sometime later that he wasn’t just a witness to those experiments, he was a participant! The aliens had swapped him into the body of a young Asian woman! He couldn’t imagine why! He tried to think back to when he caught glimpses of what was going on in the ship. Maybe he could remember something.

Hotel (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Kevin held his breath as he listened carefully for a door to open, then close, and finally lock. The man in the room, presumably this body’s husband, had left. He was finally able to have a moment to take this all in.

He knew that he was in the body of a stranger, a woman! The bathroom looked identical to his own, so he guessed he was in the same hotel. Had he swapped bodies with this woman? If he knocked on the door to his own room, could he explain this? Then again, what if his body still thought of himself as himself...or if the woman decided to pretend to be him. He’d seem like a crazy person.

He didn’t want to stick around here too long. If he wasn’t down in the lobby soon, the man would probably come back. That also meant if he decided to leave the hotel, he shouldn’t go through the lobby.

He figured he should at least grab this woman’s purse. If possible, he thought about taking a small bag with a change of clothes; this dress was very revealing, but he certainly didn’t have time to change!

He wasn’t sure if any of this was even a good idea. He just hoped whatever happened would reverse itself very soon!

Thursday, March 8, 2018


Kevin and his wife had just arrived at their hotel for their vacation. He put the bags down and headed into the bathroom. Kevin finished up by washing his hands and was suddenly shocked by his reflection. He was still in what appeared to be his hotel bathroom, but the face of a gorgeous woman now stared back at him from the mirror.

He didn’t have time to react before he heard a knock on the door and a man’s voice, “Our reservation is at seven, Honey. If you don’t hurry up, we’ll be late.”

Kevin turned and quickly tried to think of an excuse not to go with this man. “Why don’t you meet me down in the lobby?” He suggested.

His heart raced at his waited for a response. It seemed like it was taking forever.

“Alright, but hurry up. Please?” The voice replied.

Kevin breathed a sigh of relief. He was still in the body of an unknown woman, but at least he bought himself a bit more time to process this...

Long Walks (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Kris turned around to look at Tara. He placed his hand on his hips, taking a feminine stance without even realizing it.

“Are you going to squat down and go or what?” Tara abruptly asked him.

“What?” Was all Kris could seem to mutter out.

“I can’t just wait around here all day for you to pee, Kristen.”

“Kristen? But I’m your boyfriend.” “We should probably get back. You must have gotten too much sun. We come out here all the time to go on these walks to COMPLAIN about our boyfriends, remember? And while I know yours loves it when you wear heels. I still question your choice of footwear for our walk.”

Kris looked down to the heels on his feet. Walking back was NOT going to be fun, and on top of that, he apparently had a boyfriend as well! And there was no explanation as to why he was now a woman either!

Tuesday, March 6, 2018

Long Walks (Part 1)

It wasn’t uncommon for Kris and his girlfriend Tara to go on long walks that often lasted a few hours. It was on one of these walks when they stumbled upon an odd structure in the middle of nowhere. With no roads nearby, they both wondered how it got there. Kris shrugged, but he saw a few steps and a small bush and decided it wasn’t a bad time to empty his bladder. He excused himself, walked up the steps, and used the bush for privacy.

But when he reached down to his fly, he couldn’t help but notice how much tighter his hands seemed. In fact, they were so tight that it quickly became apparent something was missing! Something extremely important! His manhood! He started running his hands up the rest of his body -- he had been transformed into a woman somehow!

Joanna walked through the market looking for the perfect item to buy herself. She needed a pick me up after being dumped by her boyfriend. She spied a ring at a small stand called Spellsarous.

“That’s a fine item,” The old man working there said as Joanna picked it up, “In fact, there was a young man here just a few minutes ago who seemed quite interested in it. I think he planned to buy it for his girlfriend.”

“Don’t think you’re going to talk me up with a high pressure sales pitch,” Joanna laughed.

“I wouldn’t dream of it,” The old man replied with a smile, “In fact, I’m pretty sure he won’t be back. And, in fact, it’s on the house.”

“Really?” Joanna smiled, thinking it was her lucky day. And in a way it was, she was already much happier as Joanna than she had ever been as John...

John paused on his heels. It was here; it had to be. If he couldn’t find it; he’d never get his body back. But the details of the stand were starting to fade in his mind. The old man with a white beard soon became a white lur in his head, but then he couldn’t remember what the person working the stand looked like at all -- or even if anyone was there working. The name of the stand, Spellsarous, soon shortened in his head to Spells-R-Us before becoming just Spells, and then nothing at all.

But it started getting worse. John noticed he was no longer feeling upset about his ex-girlfriend, but he also realized he couldn’t even think of her name. Other details of his life seemed to be fading as well, but they were soon replaced by others. The last thing he could remember about his old life was his name, John, but that didn’t seem right. She was Joanna...

Winter Market (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
It had to be around here somewhere. John couldn’t recall quite where the stand was, but he was sure t was nearby. He tried to remember some of the details. There had been an old man with a beard working the booth, and the name was something like Spellsarous. He wasn’t quite sure what that meant, but he was sure he could find it. It had to be here. He was pretty sure it was right here, yet it was nowhere in sight.

Friday, March 2, 2018

Winter Market (Part 1)

With just a little bit of time before the holidays, John was feeling a little depressed. His girlfriend had recently dumped him, and he had no one. He thought buying her a gift might convince her to come back, and he headed to an outdoor holiday market to find something.

He eventually spied a few rings at one of the booths. He picked it up and looked at it. For a moment, he thought it would be perfect. Then his heart sank. He knew she wasn’t coming back. He’d need a fresh start. The only way he’d ever have a chance was to be a completely different person. And just for a second, he wished he was.

He felt strange and suddenly realized he was no longer at the market. It would seem his passing wish had actually come true, and he was now, in fact, a completely different person! Even odder, the person he now was happened to be a woman! It had to be that ring! He needed to get back to that stand and wish for his own body back!

Roll with It

“Well, this is sure to be fun,” Rowan thought while laying on the bed in his dorm and staring at his feet. He had just arrived for his freshman year at college when the Great Shift occurred, swapping him into the body of a female classmate. Classes were canceled for the time being, and kids were welcome to return home if they wanted. Rowan decided to stick around. He was actually pretty happy about his new body and was ready to roll with it...

Common Technology

When his wife first bought the odd device, Thomas was a little nervous. A few weeks later when she actually wanted to use it, he was even more worried. He reluctantly agreed, put a part of the device on his head, and sat across the room for his wife, who put a similar part on her own head.

It took a few minutes before Thomas realized he was now, in fact, looking at the other side of the room and was staring into his own eyes. It had worked exactly as advertised, and now he and his wife were in each other’s bodies.

“How long do we have to stay like this?” Thomas groaned while trying to hide his displeasure with an awkward smile.

“Just a few days,” His wife replied, “I bought it so you could learn just how hard it is to be a woman.”

“Brain switchers are pretty common technology these days. I doubt the guys are the office are going to even flinch at the fact that I’m going to be a woman for a few days.”

“You might be surprised. Some guys just can’t help it.” “I’m already regretting this...”

Guard Duty

Adam had been assigned late night guard duty at the base all week. For the most part, it had been pretty calm. It wasn’t until his final night of duty that he saw something headed for the base. Before he could react in any way, there was a flash of light followed by darkness. A few moments later, he heard classical music. Then he opened his eyes to find himself at a fancy party. His jaw dropped when he looked down and saw a dress; he was a woman!

A woman in a green dress approached him quickly. “Calm down, Adam,” She whispered to him, “Allow me to explain. It’s me; it’s Chris. We were on guard together, and they attacked the base, but I saved us.”

“B-b-but, we’re women now! How?”

“I know a little magic. The attack was so fast; I didn’t have time to be picky. I just used a body swap spell to get us as far away from there as possible. I had no idea where we’d end up or who we’d end up being.”

“But the base -- ?”

“Everyone is dead. They got the drop on us. Everyone except for us...”

Monday, February 26, 2018


James looked down, quite surprised to see a pair of breasts along with tight leather pants on his legs and high heels on his feet. He was quite shocked that he didn’t notice several other women surrounding him wearing the exact same thing.

“Okay, this is super weird, right?” Kevin, who was in the body of one of the other women, said.

“I can’t believe I’m a chick!” Victor exclaimed.

“You were both guys before?” Megan asked tilting her head over, “I can’t complain. This is like an upgrade for me.”

“I was a guy, too,” James finally piped in, “Does anyone know what happened?”

A Lot to Learn

Jason was a little nervous when he signed up for the experiment at the science institute. The marketing materials talked about living in another person’s shoes and offered a lot of cash, but when the scientist at the facility explained it was a brain transplant surgery Jason was shocked. When they refused to tell him what body he’d end up in, he thought about backing out. However, he really needed the cash, and ultimately went with it.

When he awoke from the experiment, he was shocked by his new slender, feminine body. They had put his brain in the body of a woman! Strangely, they were rushing him to put on the woman’s clothes and have just a few tests done before heading back to her house. He sort of expected a little more recovery time, but as he stood up and walked, it seemed that he didn’t need it. Everything seemed normal...almost too normal.

Jason learned about his new life. She had been a model, but she didn’t get enough work to pay the bills. The money from the experiment would be more than enough though. What still bothered him was how simple and easy the surgery had been. What the scientists never told him was that brain transplantation had been perfected long ago; where research was still lagging was about the psychological effects of a more extreme transplant. The variable in Jason’s case was gender, and they weren’t done studying him either. They had implanted a chip in his brain to monitor his location, his mood, and his reactions. There was a lot to learn.

Grand Scheme

Juan didn’t quite know how to react. He had a crush on Jessica for as long as he could remember. Finding out her boyfriend had just dumped her was a dream come true. Unfortunately, the only reason he knew this was because she was currently a crying mess on his shoulder. Well, it was actually even more complicated, since Juan had swapped bodies with Jessica’s best friend, Kiki about an hour ago. He tried to think of a plan to work this to his advantage.

Since Jessica thought he was Kiki, he knew he’d have to act sympathetic and help her get over it. At the same time, he couldn’t really empathize, because he had the goal of trying to now convince her to go into his arms. But if he pushed her to do that too much too soon, Kiki would still be the one in his body and she’d undoubtedly screw it up for him. Maybe for now he’d just enjoy being close to Jessica and figure out the grand scheme a little later...

Older (Part 3)

Click here for Part 2.
Brandon felt a little embarrassed after hanging out with Tony, so he stopped wearing his sister’s old clothes and instead stuck with things borrowed from his mom. It certainly made him feel as old as Ms. Huang probably actually was.

When school finally started back up again, Brandon was among those with more dramatic changes called to the office to meet with the guidance counselor. He waited as the other students went in and out. One of his classmates was now a toddler and another an old man. As he sat and waited, the reality of it all was really beginning to set in. He was a middle aged woman sitting in a high school office. He felt more like a parent than a student at this point. He knew he wasn’t going to fit in with the kids in his class anymore, and he was just going to have to accept that.

Older (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
It wasn’t all that surprising that school was canceled for some time after the Great Shift. This was supposed to allow people to adjust to their new bodies. But it was hard for someone like Brandon, stuck in a dramatically different body. He found himself borrowing clothes from his mom or digging through things his sister left behind when she went away to college. Wearing his mom’s clothes made him feel old, so he often prefered to wear his sister’s stuff even if it was often way more feminine or more revealing than he liked.

By the third day, he was getting a little bit of cabin fever, so he emailed his friend Tony about hanging out. Tony, who had swapped into a blond cheerleader’s body, agreed, so Brandon threw on one of his sister’s outfits and drove over. Tony was floored.

“Dude, what are you wearing?” Tony asked.

“It belonged to my sister,” Brandon explained, “I guess it’s kind of supposed to be fun and flirty.”

“Yeah, maybe if my new body wore it, but on Ms. Huang’s body, it just seems weird and gross. She’s so old, dude.”

“Yeah, well, I am in her body, so I guess I’m the old one. It sucks! It’s bad enough being stuck in a woman’s body, but being older as well is even worse!”

Wednesday, February 21, 2018

Older (Part 1)

Brandon walked home from school just as he did every day. Except unlike every other day, today had been the day of the Great Shift. While most of the rest of his class swapped with other students in the school, Brandon ended up swapping with one of his teachers, Ms. Huang.

Ever since he turned 18 last month, he had wished his mom and dad would treat him like an adult instead of a kid. He sighed as he stood outside. He figured even now that he was inside of a woman’s body more than twice his age, they’d still treat him the same way.

And he could only imagine how bad the other kids were going to make fun of him once he went back to school. He heard a few of his classmates complain about swapping into the bodies of freshman, but he couldn’t imagine anything worse than swapping with a teacher!

“Oh, come on, Gwen,” Harold sighed as a grin spread across his face, “You were showing that medallion to just about anyone; you had to expect something like this to happen sooner or later. You were just so eager to try it out that you didn’t care who you swapped bodies with...even someone a little older, a little overweight like myself. And once we swapped, did you really expect me to give you back your body after twelve hours? I don’t think so. And unlike you, I’m not going to flaunt that medallion everywhere I go. It’s tucked away safely locked up...and I’m only keeping the key around my neck! So good luck with your new body, Gwen; I know I’m going to enjoy yours...or should I say mine?”

And so, Ralph began to walk back to the post office. He tried to keep his back straight and march with a purpose, but the pinching of his high heeled shoes soon got the better of him. Just about every block or so, he needed to find somewhere to sit and take a break. He had walked quite a bit in these shoes today, and they seemed to be finally getting the better of him. They certainly weren’t made for this much walking, but he suspected he had been able to last this long thanks to this body’s muscles just being used to them! It was going to take a long time to get back to the post office!

For the next few hours, Ralph simply waited. He stood outside of his van hoping his own body would return here. It never did. Ultimately, Ralph knew he’d have to leave, but where would he go? He couldn’t go home; it would be locked and he didn’t have the keys. He had no idea where his current body lived. This only left one logical option in his mind; he’d return to the post office. He was sure it would still be open, and that someone would be there. After all, he wasn’t the only one dedicated to his job that worked there!

It took him about an hour, but Ralph was glad to make it back to his truck. It was a lot more difficult than he had anticipated to walk in heels, and his feet were killing him. On the way over, he talked with a lot of people who had also swapped bodies. Whatever happened, it seemed he wasn’t the only one experiencing this strange phenomenon.

He decided that given the circumstances, he could forgo the rest of his route today, and just take the truck back to the post office. However, whoever swapped into his body seemed to have locked it up tight and taken the keys! Unable to get into the driver’s seat, Ralph sat on the back bumper, not quite sure what his next steps would be. He certainly didn’t want to walk around more, and he didn’t want to abandon his truck either! For the time being, he just decided to wait, hoping the person who swapped into his body would return.

For the past thirty years, Ralph had what he would describe as a fairly uneventful life. He’d wake up, go to his job at the post office, deliver the mail, and then come home. It was a little repetitive, but he was happy. But one day on his route, something strange happened. As he drove his truck around town, a flash of light overcame him. He felt like he manged to pull over safely, but he soon realized he wasn’t even behind the wheel anymore..or, for that matter, even in his own body.

It was a bit of a shock to find himself in a young woman’s body wearing leather pants, high heels shoes, and a shirt that exposed a bare midriff. It was certainly the most exciting thing to ever happen to him in his entire life! But he didn’t care too much about excitement; he just wanted to get back to his truck to finish up his deliveries for the day so he could get home on time...

Luke wasn’t sure how his sister Jennifer had even swapped their bodies in the first place, but he was growing impatient. After the initial swap, she refused to swap back with him unless he attended her final semester of classes for her. Then he had take her final college exams. Finally, she told him that she wouldn’t swap back until she got the grades back to ensure he did a good job. But now it was late June and he was still stuck in her body. Enough was enough!

He approached her with a look of frustration, folded his arms, and demanded to have her swap back now. Jennifer looked nervous for a moment before she finally confessed that she didn’t have a way to swap back, the spell was good for one use only. She hadn’t realized it at the time, but she messed up! They were stuck!

Luke was annoyed. He wanted to be angrier. All he had thought about as long as he was her was about getting back to his own body. However, now with that possibility gone, he began to reflect more on his time as her, and he realized that he actually enjoyed it! He may have been annoyed, but he couldn’t stay too mad!

John had no idea what to think when he looked down and saw his hand. Instead of the dark skin he usually saw, his hand was pale. And not only that, it was also thinner and much more...dainty? He quickly shoved his hands into his pockets as his mind raced to understand the situation. For some reason, he was now inside the body of a white woman! At first, he smiled. He thought about the various forms of systematic racism he had experienced in his life, and he couldn’t help but think that was all gone now. He thought about it a little more, and his smile began to fade. Then again, being a black man had been such an integral part of his identity, it was hard to imagine how he was going to adapt to this. And not only that, he knew women faced disadvantages of their own. He couldn’t wonder how those would affect him now. Of course, he still hadn’t even begun to think of how or why he was suddenly in a new body...

Frozen Treat

It was a fairly nice day, so Miles decided to go for a walk in the park. As the day went on it got hotter, so Miles stopped for an ice cream. The woman before him in line was taking forever to decide. He was even more annoyed when she simply ordered a vanilla cone. He quickly ordered his own ice cream and began to lick.

He hadn’t eaten too much of the frozen treat before he started to felt woozy. He thought he had collapsed, but he seemed to remain on his feet. That’s when he saw a familiar body on the ground. He had indeed collapsed, and there was his body. But he didn’t feel like a ghost. In fact, he still felt quite solid, and there was a taste in his mouth...vanilla? Even more shocking than seeing his own body collapsed was when Miles looked down at his own body. He had become the woman he had been standing behind in line! He was her with the same revealing top, jean shorts, and vanilla ice cream! It didn’t seem at all possible! What was in this ice cream that caused this!? And why was his own body still not waking up!?

What Might've Been

It had been a few weeks since the Great Shift, and things had gone back to being relatively normal. Despite swapping into new bodies, people continued on with their lives. But for someone like Nathan, there was always the lingering thought of what could have been. On his way to work, he sat down on the train. He looked to his right to see a woman in a school uniform sleeping next to him. He hadn’t minded swapping into the body of a woman, but he couldn’t help but feel a hint of jealousy, thinking it would’ve been nicer to have swapped with a body a little bit younger than his own instead of one that was a little bit older. As his jealousy grew, a snore caught his attention. To his left, another woman slept. This was one was significantly older. Suddenly his jealousy faded. He realized he could have swapped into a body that would’ve been quite a bit worse. He guessed he should be happy, but it was hard not to think about all that might’ve been..

Command (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Kevin often grew weary of the things he was made to do. They often didn’t make much sense; he just did them because he had to. For about an hour each day, he was told to stand still and hold a paper between his knees. And each and every day he complied, just standing there unflinching for the hour.

But one day, he finally felt a muscle twitch and relax. The paper fell to the floor. He leaned over and picked it up. He paused briefly, realizing he hadn’t been told to pick it up. He did it on his own. He could wiggle his fingers; he could once again move in any way he wanted. He was still stuck in a woman’s body, but he was free! Fre from the control. He looked around him to see the lines of women, still holding the paper between their knees, still stuck in the same hell he had been in for months. He didn’t know how he was able to escape or where he was going to go, but he was just so thankful to finally be free!

Saturday, February 10, 2018


Kevin felt like a prisoner inside of his own head...except it wasn’t even his own head. He had woken up several months ago in a bed and he couldn’t move. He knew something was wrong and even as he lay motionless he could tell what it was -- he was now in a woman’s body! Things got even stranger when he heard an announcement to stand up, which his body immediately obeyed. In fact, except for things like breathing, his body couldn’t seem to do anything other than what was commanded of it. Kevin had no control; he could only feel the experiences.

Over the next few months, Kevin’s body was instructed about being female, how to sit up straight and cross his legs. He was told what to wear, how to do his hair and makeup, and he obeyed it all perfectly -- even when it hurt. Inside his head, he could only question why. Why would anyone do this to him? Why would anyone need to? Why did he have to be along for any of this? He wanted nothing more than to cry, but he couldn’t because his body could’ve only done so if it had been commanded to..

Wouldn't Believe It

“I can’t believe I’m wearing this thing,” Will muttered under his breath, “Maybe I should just tell Jade’s family about the body swap...that I’m not really Jade. Then again, who would even believe me if I said anything? A body swap? I mean, come on, if it didn’t happen to me, I wouldn’t believe it. But here I am...in Jade’s body putting on this outfit.”

Dropped (Part 2)

And then Esther opened the door. Greg gave a nervous smile as he finished picking up the contents and putting them back in his purse.

“Uh...why are you on the ground?” Esther asked.

“I..uh...I..I dropped my purse,” Greg stammered, “And I have some bad news.”

“Bad news?”

Greg took a deep breath. He was going to have to tell Esther about how he had lost the medallion and how she was going to be stuck in his body. He only hoped that she had actually enjoyed her time in his body and that she wouldn’t be too mad.

Wednesday, February 7, 2018


Just as Greg walked up to the door of his own house, he dropped his purse on the ground, and the contents spilled all over. But as he put them back in, he was shocked as to what was missing: the medallion! He was sure he had put it in here; it had to be in here! If it wasn’t in here, then he wouldn’t be able to swap bodies back with Esther! He’d be stuck as her forever. He panicked as he began to dig through the contents. Sure, he had an interest in trying out being a woman for a bit, but the past twelve hours had been awful. Running around in heels was awful, the purse was annoying, and wearing a skirt around wasn’t fun either. And now he was going to stuck like this? He wanted to scream.

Tuesday, February 6, 2018


“Oh, Carl,” Mei gushed, “You look so beautiful.”

“No, Mei,” Carl corrected her, “YOU look beautiful. This is still your body. It’s just because of the Great Shift that I ended up in it.”

“Thank you for doing this for me, and thank you for asking me backstage with you.”

“I know it was your dream before the Shift to walk in a runway show. When that guy in the mall asked me if I was interested in doing just that, I had to say yes. I had to say yes for you. Honestly, the whole process has made me very uncomfortable -- the dress, the hair, the makeup -- I’m really not enjoying any of it except your smile.”

Carl looked over to his wife Mei. He was happy to see her smiling again. She had been pretty bummed out when the Great Shift swapped her into a body several decades older while Carl ended up swapping into her body. He was doing his best to try to make her happy -- to allow her to live vicariously through him. It wasn’t easy. He hated looking all girlie and fashion and whatnot, but he knew dolling himself up made Mei happy. He knew going through with modeling in this fashion show would also make her happy. So he did it; he did it all. Just to make her happy.

Permanent Vacation

When Mark first got the box in the mail that contained what claimed to be a body swapper, he didn’t know what to do with it -- or if even to believe it. But a few weeks later, he finally found a reason to test it out. He had a week long vacation at a resort, and when it was over he really didn’t want to leave. He realized he didn’t have to. On his last day, he waited for people to arrive at the front desk. He was particularly on the lookout for people traveling alone and listened for their name. Once they had gone upstairs, he entered their name into the body swapper and the next thing he knew it worked! This kept going on for several months.

He had just spent the week in the body of a business traveller. He had purposely skipped all the meetings. He had been by the front desk all day, but there had been very few guests and the ones who had checked in weren’t alone. Then he saw her. It would be his first time being a woman, but he was not sure he had much choice. He made note of her name and waited before using the body swapper.

She had apparently gone to the pool almost immediately. He found himself in her body splashing about. For about fifteen minutes, this continued until a tall figure leaned over the edge and demanded Mark get out. Mark recognized the body that had just been borrowing less than an hour ago. It looked mad. He just smiled an evil grin.

“I think you’re going to be late for your flight.” He said, “I think You’ve already checked out as well. You’re no longer a guest at this hotel. Don’t make me call security.”

“Give it back,” She demanded.

“I assure you I have no idea what you’re talking about, and if you try to tell anyone, I’m sure they’ll think your crazy. So good luck with your new life. I’ll certainly be enjoying yours for the next two weeks!”

Bad Feeling

Sheila groaned as she got out of the car and headed to her son’s school. It was still hard for her to believe she was going to have to spend the day there in his body as the result of that stupid medallion. Her only relief was that they’d be able to use it again the moment she got home in order to return to normal. As she headed toward the school, she turned back to the car to see her son Tom in her body. He stuck his tongue out at her before he peeled out and drove away. Sheila didn’t know what her son planned to do with her body today, but she had a bad feeling about it.

Saturday, February 3, 2018


Chad wasn’t initially worried when his girlfriend Katie found a spell online to swap bodies. She asked to try it, and he laughed it off. He wasn’t laughing nearly as hard after it worked. Still, he tried not to let it get to him. He knew he had to train for the upcoming season of baseball, and he figured the fundamentals were the same regardless of what body he was in.

However, once he started to practice, he wondered if it wasn’t just bodies that he swapped with her but skills as well. He’d throw the ball into the air and then whiff. No matter how hard he tried, he just couldn’t hit it. He had a certain sense that he was taking an incorrect stance or holding the bat wrong or just swinging poorly. However, as he tried to search his mind, he couldn’t quite remember the right way to do any of those things. In fact, part of him was feeling that baseball was just a little bit boring. Now he was starting to worry.

Don't Stare

It had been two days since the Great Shift, and Brett wasn’t exactly feeling great about his new body. He knew what he needed: a drink. After walking over to the liquor shelf, he turned sharply to his roommate to give him a sour stare.

“I know you’re enjoying this, Henry,” Brett said, “You always liked women with big breasts and big booties. Now that I happen to be one of those women, I know you’ve been staring at me!”

“Come on, Bro,” Henry replied, “Just admit you’re sexy as hell now. It’s not like I’m going to be doing anything about it. I swapped into a chick’s body as well.”

“Yeah, well, maybe I’m just not adapting to it as well as you are! I still bump things over with my butt because I’m not used to it yet! It’s weird, and I’m certainly NOT comfortable. It’d be help if you didn’t stare!”

Confirmed Misplacement

Evan waited patiently as he looked at his phone while waiting for a call or a text from Exchange Island’s main desk. Apparently, it was becoming increasingly common for a guest to not swap back to their own body by the end of their vacation. When he was boarding his flight off the island, he had been told not to worry as it was just as common for people to swap in transit as it was for them to swap right after checking out. His concern grew after he landed. He was now waiting for his connecting flight back home, and he was still stuck in the body of the woman he had been in for the past two weeks.

The resort’s customer service line was supposed to send him a message with a few details, such as where his body was, if it had been misplaced, and his ETA for returning to it. He honestly didn’t mind keeping this body a little longer. He had enjoyed his time in it while on the island, but he also had to go back to work on Monday. If he showed up like this, he wasn’t sure how he was going to explain it. Exchange Island was a pretty well kept secret, and even people who he had told didn’t believe him. For now he could only wait...

And that’s when he got the text: “Location of body: unknown. Confirmed misplacement. ETA for return: 3 months.” Evan sighed. Work was not going to be easy on Monday.

One Last Thing

Bethany and Harold had worked closely together in their grad program to develop their invention. Both were pleasantly surprised when they tested their brain swapping machine and found it worked perfectly. The problems only started when they tried to swap back. It didn’t take them long to discover the parts that had been fried. Replacements were quickly ordered, but they would take a few days to arrive. It meant that Bethany and Harold would be stuck in each other’s bodies for a few days. Bethany spent a few hours giving Harold detailed instructions about how to act, what to wear, and general tips on not revealing the swap. Harold nodded intently as he listened. She was pretty sure he was getting most of it. Then Bethany asked if she needed to know things about being a guy.

Harold shrugged and sat down, “Not much, I guess. Being a guy is pretty easy.”

Bethany couldn’t notice Harold’s mannerism and the way he sat. She sighed, “One last thing. Please cross your legs when you sit. Or at least put your knees together.”

“But I’ll totally crush my balls crossing my legs,” Harold objected before he realized the stupidity of his comment and laughed, “Oh, yeah, guess I don’t have those any more.”

“Not until we fix this machine. You’ll get used to it though.”

Harold frowned, “I don’t want to get used to it! I want the replacement parts to come, so we can repair our invention, and get back to normal!”

“We both do. Believe me...”

Vance woke up in the morning with the taste of stale booze and cigarettes in his mouth. He tried to think back to the night before, but it was all a blur. As he trudged along to the bathroom he felt something was off, but he couldn’t quite place his finger on it. Then as he caught his reflection in the mirror, his jaw dropped. Looking back at him from the mirror was a gorgeous woman. His mind was in a panic, but he quickly decided to his the streets to look for some answers. Digging through her wardrobe, his selection seemed quite limited. With little choice, he tied his long hair up, put on some leather pants, and headed out.

He didn’t make it very far until he stumbled across a wall plastered with the covers of fashion magazines. Sure enough, he recognized a face on one of them. It was the one that had looked back at him from the mirror this morning. It seemed he was not just a woman, he was a model -- one famous enough to be on the cover of a magazine at that! None of this seemed to make him feel much better, but at least he knew a little more about who he now was...

Why do women smell so good? Particularly their hair? It was a question that Randall often asked himself. He would often take deep whiffs around his ex-girlfriends, and every single one of them had told him he was weird after he explained why he was doing it. Well, because of the Great Shift, he no longer had to depend on a girlfriend. He pulled a piece of hair, moved it in front of his nose, and inhaled deeply. He never got tired of it. He couldn’t believe how good his own hair smelled now that he was a woman. He still had no idea why any of his exes ever made him feel bad for enjoying this...

Not Like This

It wasn’t often that Mark brought a woman he randomly met at a bar one night back to his place, but he had a feeling that Tiffany was different. He connected with her in a way that he couldn’t imagine, so he was a little disappointed when he awoke the morning after their one night stand to find her gone. He wondered why she had run off...that is until he got to the bathroom and saw his reflection. It seems Tiffany didn’t run off; instead, at some point in the night they had fused into a single person. He screamed in shock as he saw his face on Tiffany’s otherwise gorgeous body. He pulled up on her pink shirt to reveal more of his body. He felt like some sort of freak. He wanted to get close to Tiffany, but not like this! Not like this at all!

Flash (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.

Jason felt the smooth skin on his face. It was weird not having stubble. There were others differences to his body that were bothering him, but he didn’t feel so ready to explore them. In fact, he didn’t even want to think about them right now. But he knew he couldn’t hold his pee in forever, and he’d eventually have to worry about a monthly visitor as well. He pushed both thoughts out of his mind as he continued to feel his face. It was so smooth; it was so weird.

Friday, January 26, 2018


In the distance it looked like a flash of lightning, but then the strange light hit him like truck. Jason was knocked off his feet and onto the ground. He picked himself up, feeling quite odd. He grabbed his head with a throbbing pain, and as he got to his feet he noticed the change to his body. He was wearing a short dress, and he had a womans body. It wasn’t his body! What had happened. His jaw dropped. He couldn’t be a woman; he just couldn’t! It was impossible! Yet the evidence was right there when he looked down. The short orange dress, the high heels. He was a woman!

Thursday, January 25, 2018


Paul felt that he adapted pretty well to the Great Shift. He was able to adjust to being a woman fairly well. He would go out and get his hair done, do his makeup, and embrace a very feminine wardrobe. Still, there were a few things that did bother him. A few of the pants he owned seemed just a little too tight. As a result, he often felt like his ass looked a little big in some of them. Then again, he supposed this was a feeling women had felt all the time. Maybe he was adapting even better than he imagined.

Boss (Part 3)

Frank was ecstatic when after about thirty minutes, everyone returned from lunch. He unlocked the door and called out.

“Frank,” He said, “Could you come in here?”

Frank sat on the corner of Heather’s desk while his own body sat in the corner. Frank could see his body sweating, and it appeared to be quite nervous.

“What’s wrong?” Frank asked.

“Do you not know, Ma’am?”

“Know what?”

“The Great Shift. There are news reports. Everyone in the world seems to have just swapped bodies. By the way, I’m actually Emily from accounting.”

Frank paused. Suddenly the reality of what happened was setting in. He was in his boss’s body, but no one knew it. Instead of being disgusted, he suddenly felt empowered instead. He made a snap judgment.

“Body swapping?” He scoffed, “Sounds like a bunch of bullshit to me. Now get back to work.”

“Yes, Ma’am,” Emily cowered from Frank’s body as she ran off.

Things were going to get interesting...

Boss (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.

Frank slowly sat down. The tight skirt and heels made it awkward, but he managed as best he could. For the next few minutes, he fiddled with the pens on Heather’s desk. He was too nervous to do much of anything. He thought about going out to talk to her secretary, but he wasn’t sure what he would say. He decided the only thing he could do was wait until his own body got back from lunch. Luckily, the door to Heather’s office was locked, and no one would dare bother her. He just had to wait it out. Every second doing so felt like torture. He was reminded of every time he was stuck in a meeting with Heather or even just in the same room, but this was worse. So much worse...

Monday, January 22, 2018


No one in the office liked Heather. She inherited the company from her father a few months ago, and everyone felt like she acted entitled and spoiled. She didn’t understand the business and seemed more interested in just bossing people around. Frank was pretty happy to be able to escape with his co-workers for an hour in the middle of the day to go get some lunch.

But one was day, just as he was leaving, he felt himself being sucked back in--and not figuratively. It was like his soul was sucked right back into the building. He groaned when he realized it had sucked him back right into Heather’s office, but the groan sounded odd. He coughed to clear his throat, but it too sounded odd. That’s when it dawned on him that he wasn’t just in Heather’s office; he was also in her body!

The shock alone made him lose his balance as he back up to the desk and put his hands on there to hold himself. He couldn’t believe it! Of all the people in his office to swap bodies with, he had to become his bitch of a boss!

As he blazed down the road in his car, Kyle knew he was speeding. He was sure he could handle it, even if swerved a little bit after checking out a hot woman on the side of the road. The next thing he knew, he saw a bright flash. He was sure he hadn’t hit anything, but he could also tell he was no longer moving. Plus, he was no longer sitting but standing. He looked down in shock, recognizing the long legs and outfit. They both belonged to the woman he had just checked out...except that they were both on him now. As he reached down to feel the smooth and unfamiliar skin, he heard a crash. Somehow he knew something had happened to his original body, but with these heels, he was in no shape to run over to investigate.

The accident was one of many that resulted from the massive body swapping incident that would come to be known as The Great Shift. The woman who found herself in Kyle’s body was unable to understand what was going on fast enough, and ended up crashing the car. If he had just been going a little slower, his body probably would have survived. Along with his new female body, it was something he would just have to live with...

The Moment

“I still remember the moment very clearly,” Craig said to his psychiatrist describing the moments right after the Great Shift, “I felt a little woozy. I was running late for a meeting, so I checked my watch. That’s when I realized my watch was not on my wrist. I wondered if I had lost it, or maybe if I had just been mistaken about putting it in the morning. And that’s when I began to notice the wrist itself. It was thin and the arm was hairless. The nails on my hand appeared to be manicured. I took a step and I wobbled on the heels now on my feet. My brain was having a hard time processing that I was now in a new body -- that I was now a woman. In fact, it’s still hard for me even now sometimes. It’s just things like, well, even describing this all to you and hearing my own voice be so high pitched. It’s really hard to get used to. I guess that’s why I am here in the first place, isn’t it?”

The Great What?

Tyrone nearly vomited when he suddenly found himself drinking a bottle of something labeled “Detox.” Then when he realized he now had the body of a woman, he grabbed a nearby bottle of wine along with a cup and began drinking.

It was a few hours later when he saw his own former body enter the room. By this time, he was pretty drunk.

“Hey,” Tyrone slurred while drunkenly
pointing a finger, “That’s me.”

“Yes,” His own body replied, “And you’re me. We’ve switched bodies, and if you turned on a TV, you’d probably know why. Did you hear about the Great Shift?”

“The Great What? Naw, but this body is pretty great. I can’t say I mind it...”

“I’ve got to say I’m somewhat impressed,” Greg laughed, “The fact that you even realized I’m not actually your wife is pretty impressive. But chaining me up in the basement isn’t going to do you much good. You see, Frank, I’m what is called a bodyhopper. I can jump my spirit from body to body as I please, but being stuck down here, I can’t exactly hop back into my own body. So, I guess...”

As Greg trailed off, Frank suddenly felt odd. He soon realized he was now in the body of his own wife and chained up. “What did you do?” Frank snapped as he struggled.

“We’re you not paying any attention? Since I couldn’t hop back to my own body, I escaped by hopping into yours. And your soul? Well, it wound up where I had been, in your wife’s body. I hope you enjoy it, as I can’t be bothered to sort this all out for you.”

Tim’s least favorite moment was date nights with his dad. For starters, he’d have to spend much of the day at the hair salon and beauty parlor getting ready. This ruined his favorite part of the day. And while he had adapted mostly well to his stepmom’s wardrobe, the outfits she wore to dress up were uncomfortable. Then there was coming back from the date. His father had certain...expectations, and Tim put on a brave face and went through with them. He never objected no matter how much he wanted to. He just smiled and did whatever his dad wanted of him after the date, never revealing he wasn’t actually who he appeared to be...

Tim enjoyed weekdays a lot. From the time his dad went to work and his brothers and sisters went to school until the time they got home, he had an opportunity to feel like himself -- despite the body he currently had. He had to do a few chores like going to the store, doing the laundry, or cleaning the house, but he could also play video games or watch some TV. Of course, the moment he heard anyone get home, he put a big smile on his face and played the role of caring mother of loving wife. It was beginning to get really tiring, but if he stopped, he knew how much it would let the family down.

When Tim arrived at home, he received such a homecoming from his family that he nearly cried. It was a little awkward that he couldn’t tell them that he was really Tim, but it was even weirder that there was already a Tim. His body was standing there acting completely normal...which he supposed should be no surprise. To the original Tim, everything WAS normal. After about fifteen minutes, he excused himself upstairs to get some rest.

Tim’s dad confonted him at the top of the stairs. He asked if everything was okay. Tim smiled back, and said, “Of course, it is.”

“You just seemed a little distant down there,” His dad replied, “Like something was a bit off.”

“The hospital was tough, and I’m really just tired.” After only fifteen minutes, Tim was starting to doubt his decision and wondered if was going to actually be able to pull this off.

Step Up (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.

Tim’s family had been told about the experimental procedure, and Tim’s dad had been particularly relieved to hear it had worked. But when Tim’s stepmom finally awoke, and the doctors discovered she was essentially a copy of Tim; they decided to give Tim the decision to tell his family or not. Tim sighed. He didn’t want to cause his family any more pain. He told the doctors tell them his stepmom was fine. He’d do his best to act like Linda Connors and pretend to be his own stepmom. It was why he tried to smile no matter how awkward or uncomfortable he felt. He had to pretend to be Linda -- for the sake of his family.

Tim thought about this moment as the doctors escorted him outside after finally being discharged. They put him in the back of a self-driving cab. As Tim began to enter his address into the guided navigation, the doctors asked him if was sure if he could handle this.

“Honestly, no,” Tim said with a smile, “But I feel like I got to try. For my family, I’ve got to try...”

Step Up (Part 1)

Tim stood up and went to look at the mirror in his room and smiled. He didn’t exactly feel like smiling, but he knew he had to practice. After all, the doctors would be sending him home tomorrow, and he needed to learn to keep up appearances. He had come into the hospital after a horrible car accident. He more than remembered getting into the accident while driving with his stepmother, and he even more clearly remembered waking up in her body!

The doctors quickly tried to calm him. They told him that he was, in fact, fine. Tim angrily gestured to his body to indicate he was not fine. The doctors shook their heads. Tim was, in fact, only knocked out with a few cuts and scrapes, but his stepmom was in poor shape. A piece of glass had pierced her brain, and the doctors were able to heal it using experimental procedures. Those procedures needed a second subject’s brain to help heal the damaged parts. With Tim’s being the closet brain available, the doctors went with it. Tim was hooked up to a machine and the doctors went to work.

Unfortunately, the damaged portion of his stepmom’s brain was largely responsible for the sense of self (personality, memories, and such). As a result, the procedure essentially created a second Tim. One was still in his original body while the other was now in the body of his stepmother!

When the body swapping service first started up, Malcolm nearly balked at the first. It was a couple hundred dollars just to submit his own photo and obtain the catalog of others he could swap with. It took several weeks to arrive in the mail -- a thick, phonebook-like glossy filled with people’s faces and a few scant details. He nervously filled out a form where he made his picks ordered from one to ten, then he wrote in his bank information knowing he’d soon be around a hundred thousand dollars poorer. He told himself it would be worth it when he finally was able to achieve his long time dream of swapping bodies with a woman.

Details arrived back some time later with instructions about when and where to go for the swap. He was also advised that he’d be swapping with number six on his list, Emily. He looked back to the catalog to see a pretty smiling face he had selected. Now he just needed to wait.

Arriving at the lab on the scheduled day, Malcolm was giddy. He was given some instructions before being put under. He had wonderful dreams about the body he’d be waking up with.

His eyes fluttered open some time later, and he was shown a mirror. He smiled as he recognized the pretty reflection looking back at him. He was now in Emily’s body! But something didn’t quite feel right. In a word, he felt...heavy. Looking down, he realized that Emily’s body was bigger than he anticipated from her head shot. A part of him felt disappointed; another part of him felt cheated. He thought about protesting, but he knew the documents he had signed were air-tight. He was going to be stuck in body until he could pay up enough to try again. As he left the lab and headed back home, he just sighed, thinking he’d make the most of it. After all, he was still going to get to experience being a woman!

Never Hear the End of It

Allen was pretty upset when he saw Marilyn enter. There she was with his body wearing full makeup.

“What are you doing!?” He screamed, “I get made fun of enough as it is. If anyone saw my body like that, I’ll never hear the end of it when we finally swap back.”

“IF we ever swap back,” Marilyn corrected, “And speaking of appearances, have you looked in a mirror? You’ve made me look a dork every single day!”

“I’m at least trying here! Being a woman is hard! I’m sorry if I can’t balance on your heels, match your outfits probably, or stuff like that!”

“You could at least put in my contact lenses!”

Ted picked himself up off the floor. There was something wrong with his body -- really wrong -- in fact, it wasn’t his body at all. He tried to think about what happened to him just before the collapse. He had been playing pool; he lost. He had placed a bet just before hand. What was it? Oh, yeah, anything she wanted. He couldn’t imagine that what she wanted was his body. It seemed impossible. Yet, here he was. He was now her. He could only assume she had run off with his body. He didn’t want to think about it. Of course, he didn’t want to think about what was right in front of him now either.

Accomplishment (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.

Ronald guessed he’d have to adjust to being a woman for the time being. After all, it would probably be weeks before he’d be able to perfect his device to a point where he’d be able to transfer his consciousness back into his own body. Though, to be honest, he didn’t really care. He had just made a machine that could change the world! He smiled smugly, feeling quite proud of himself.

Ronald celebrated with intense joy. His invention was a complete success. He managed to beam his consciousness into a completely different body miles away. Of course, due to the distance and the fact that he was still testing, he wasn’t quite able to aim for anyone in particular. As a result, he found himself in the body of a woman. But he didn’t care. He was just overjoyed with the fact that his invention actually worked. Sure, he’d also have to figure out a way to get back to is own body, but he could work on that later. For now, he was satisfied with his accomplishments.

“Yeah, yeah, I think I can deal with this,” Frank said as he put his foot up on the desk, “I mean, I think I can deal with being a chick for a few days. I mean, how hard can it be? Plus, we’re going to reverse this whole thing soon enough.”

Sally smiled at Frank’s arrogance. Her monthly cramps would be starting soon, and she couldn’t wait to see how he’d cope with them. He was sitting with a smug look on his face now, but she was sure he’d be curled up in pain in just a few hours. Then he’d finally admit just how hard it is to be a woman in this world.

Good Vibrations

When the walls of his apartment began to vibrate, Lance put his hand on the wall to feel. He then felt very odd noticed he was no longer in his own apartment -- and, in fact, he was no longer in his own body either. He looked in the mirror and recognized his reflection; it belonged to the woman from 3F. He headed down in the lobby in hopes of getting some answers with his heels clicking clumsily down the steps. Most of the residents were there, apparently in a similar situation to Lance. The eccentric white-haired man who lived int he basement was attempting to calm everyone down, explaining he was responsible but also that he could fix it.

Lance urged everyone to calm down, to give the man the time he needed. He asked how long he needed? A few hours? A day?

Lance’s jaw dropped when the man replied calmly by saying “six months.” He was all for giving this guy the time he needed, but he didn’t want to be stuck in a woman’s body for that long!

Officer Clarke caught the car doing 80MPH in a 30. He smiled as he pulled it over, figuring this would the easiest ticket he ever wrote.

“Could you step out of the vehicle please, Miss?” Officer Clarke asked to the woman behind the wheel, “Do you know how fast you were going?”

“Oh, thank goodness,” The woman replied, “I am so glad to see you. I had no idea how fast I was going. I don’t even know whose body I’m in. My name is Malcolm Goode. I suddenly found myself driving this car with your lights in my rearview. I pulled over as quickly as possible. Could you help me figure out how I swapped into this body or how to get back?”

Officer Clarke had heard some tall tales trying to get out tickets, but he had no idea how to even respond to this one...

About Time

“Well, it’s about time!” Paul thought to himself as he read through the book. Inside, he finally found the body swap spell that Esther must have used to steal his body. He had been digging through her books for the past year looking for it. He carefully studied the words and took stock of the list of ingredients. It seemed like he’d finally have a way to get back his own body until he turned the page to read the end of the spell and found a note: “Warning: This spell cannot be reversed!” His heart sank when he read that; it seems like he was stuck in Esther’s body for good!

Rich, Powerful, Important

As Jack walked out of the cab and onto the street, he could hear the heels of his shoes clicking on the street. When he first got swapped into the body of the cab driver, he had a vision of the person whose life he’d end up stealing -- rich, powerful, important. He never imagined such a person would be a woman. Still, when she got into the cab, he recognized her immediately. He had read all the financial magazines and had seen her face on the cover. She had built a fashion empire at such a young age and made a fortune. It was really everything he wanted, just in a rather unexpected way. As they reached their destination, he smiled and said, “Have a nice day.” It was that simple to swap with her, and indeed he was now her. He could hear her engine idling as he walked away, but he knew she couldn’t do anything except drive away. The magic of the cab that allowed the body swap in the first place would never allow the new driver to do anything except leave...

“Come on, Liz, seriously?” Jason begged, “You must’ve brought me something else to wear. This is uncomfortable, and I feel really exposed.”

Elizabeth smiled, “You were the one who was curious about what it felt like to be a woman. And, trust me, there’s no bigger part of being a woman than feeling both uncomfortable and exposed.”

Jason sighed but before he could object further, Elizabeth cut him off.

“And if you don’t stop whining about it, I won’t ever swap our bodies back. So you better learn to feel comfortable very fast, Mister...or should I say Misses?”
