Can't Go Out Like That

“See you later, Liz,” Kent said to his daughter as he headed to the door.

“Dad, wait, you can’t go out wearing that!” Liz protested.

“Why not? It’s exactly the same outfit that you were going to wear yesterday.”

“Exactly, and you made me change.”

“Right, because you’re my daughter. But I’m a grown man. I can wear whatever I want.”

“No, you WERE a grown man,” Liz said angrily, “That is until we swapped bodies. Now you’re in MY body!”

“In which case I’ll use the same argument you tried to yesterday. I am a twenty one year old grown woman, and you can’t tell me what to do. You may have my body, but you aren’t MY family. I am not living under YOUR roof. This is MY roof. Which means I get to make the rules.”

“Your roof? I bet if we went to the bank right now they wouldn’t think it was your roof. I look like the guy who writes the checks for the mortgage.”

“...And I’m still doing the work to pay for that mortgage. Luckily, they let me work from home.”

Both Liz and her dad paused.

“We’re pretty much both screwed if we don’t swap back soon, aren’t we?” Liz finally sighed, breaking the silence.

SwApp

“Can one of you explain to me why this app is so popular?” Jeff said while nervously looking for an undo button.

“It’s a body swapper. I guess it’s sort of cool to be someone else for a while. You’ve got to admit it’s sort of impressive,” Caitlyn replied.

“That’s easy for you to say,” Natalie retorted, “You got my body. You’re still the same gender at least. I’m stuck in Jeff’s body, and he’s stuck in yours.”

“Hey, I’m not comfortable with the idea of Jeff being in my body, but you’ve got to admit that the fact our phones can even do something like this says a lot about technological advances.”

“It’s not like I’m going to do anything weird with your body!” Jeff interjected, “I just think it’s probably best before I have to do something like go pee.”

“That’s exactly what I’m talking about...”

Rural (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Daryl knew his mom was worried about him, and he obviously knew he should swap everyone back to normal, return to his own body, and let her know he was okay. However, he wanted to spend just a little more time in Pam’s body. There was just so much he hadn’t done yet! He told himself it would just be a few more minutes, but then minutes turned to hours and he found himself wearing a breezy summer dress. Everything about this just felt so right.

But as much as he was enjoying being a woman -- being Pam -- he knew it wouldn’t last. He did need to get back to normal, so he trudged over to the shed. But his body was gone; the dog’s body was gone. If he couldn’t find both of them, he was going to be stuck like this! That thought didn’t bother him on some level, but he knew his mom would certainly worry and he just couldn’t do that to her!

Rural

Liz had grown quite worried about her son Daryl. She hadn’t seen him for several hours now, and she was getting worried. He hadn’t enjoyed when their family had moved to the farm in the rural town, and she was worried he had run away. She began to search a little bit when she saw her neighbor, Pam, sitting on a tractor in her field.

“Pam, you haven’t seen Daryl around, have you?” Liz asked nervously.

What Liz didn’t know was on the edge of their property was a small shed that contained a body swapping machine. Daryl had been using it pretty much non-stop since he found him. It just so happened that today he had swapped with Pam, leaving Pam stuck in her dog’s body while her dog was in his body.

“I’m sure he’s fine,” Daryl said with smile, knowing perfectly well that it was the truth.

“I’ve just been worried since we moved here. He doesn’t tell me anything anymore. He seems miserable.”

“I bet he was at first, but this town has a way of growing on people. I’m sure he’s just hanging out with some new friends he’s made, or maybe he found some other way to enjoy himself.”

“I hope you’re right, Pam.”

Coma

Adam wasn’t sure how long he had been in the coma. It may have been months; it may have been years. Throughout it all, he could hear everything the doctors said -- their concerns, their efforts, and even their occasional insults. Lately they were talking about unplugging him. Considering his state, Adam wondered if it might not be so bad; he wished for nothing more than to be out of this hospital bed. But right before the plug was to be pulled, he had an amazing out of body experience. Suddenly he was looking at himself, and he realized he was doing so while standing in the body of one of the doctors. He didn’t want to say anything or call attention to himself. He just wanted to quietly take this woman’s body and sneak out, enjoy the outside for the first time forever -- basically just enjoy life. But before he could do that, he’d have to play up his role. So for the time being, he just looked serious and listened.

Missed Connection (Part 3)

Click here for Part 1.
Click here for Part 2.
Matthew breathed a sigh of relief when he saw his own body approach. His plan had worked. Now it was just a matter of swapping back to normal. However, neither he nor the woman trapped in his body had any idea on how to do that. They discussed with each other for quite some time, but didn’t have way to solve the problem of being in each other’s body. Eventually, they just started discussing how they were going to each deal with their new body. Matthew was pretty unhappy about the thought of being stuck as a flight attendant, walking up and down the aisle of a plane all day in these heels. He was pretty sure his new life was going to be miserable...

Missed Connection (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Matthew figured the smartest course of action would be to head back to where he last remembered being in his body. He wanted to sprint, but the heels now on his feet limited his walking speed. He had to even hold onto a railing to keep from falling most of the time. How did women wear these things? It had only been about ten minutes, he was still far from where he had been, and his feet were killing him. Then he came up with a plan. If he was in the body of a flight attendant, surely he could just get on the intercom and call for himself? He noted the woman’s name on the security badge and set about with his plan...

Thursday, May 16, 2019

Missed Connection

Because of a delay on his initial flight, Matthew was forced to run through his layover if he hoped to make his connecting flight. As he sprinted through the airport, all he could think about was making it on time. However, just as he thought that caught sight of his gate, he tripped and fell. He tried to scramble his belongings and get back on his feet, but instead of his briefcase, he saw a purse. Instead of his sneakers, he saw high heels. Realizing those heels were on his feet was a shock. It was dawning on him that he had become a woman -- he had swapped bodies with a stewardess. He wasn’t concerned with catching his flight anymore; he was now more worried about getting his body back!

Couldn't Stop Himself

When James first had his body stolen and he ended up stuck in the body of the magic taxi’s driver, he was in a state of panic. But as he spent more and more driving people around, he started to actually enjoy it. In fact, by the time he read the driver’s journal and found that he to could steal someone’s body just as his had been stolen, he wasn’t sure he even wanted to. It was about two weeks after he resigned himself to being in this body for good when n Asian woman in a silver coat entered his cab. There was just something about her. He avoided talking to her -- he didn’t want to temp himself by learning to much. It didn’t matter. When it was time to pay the fare, he wished her a nice day and suddenly found himself in her body. He wasn’t sure how or why, but he just couldn’t stop himself from stealing her body. But he smiled...he couldn’t complain either...

Target

Roger had gotten the file on his latest target. The guy was a high level operative for a rival drug operation, but he had a great cover -- a life in the suburbs with kids and a beautiful wife. After a period of intense research, Roger strapped himself into an odd chair in his basement and pressed a button.

In an instant Roger was transported into a new body -- in this case, the wife of the man he was supposed to kill. This was exactly how it was planned to work; he used a machine to swap himself into the body of someone close to his target, make a kill, then return to his own body while the person he swapped with got the blame. Being swapped into a preppy suburban mom was certainly unique for him -- he was usually swapped with some low life thug -- but it wasn’t going to stop him. He only had three hours in this body, which meant he only had three hours to find and kill this jerk..

Headphones

Per the instructions of the researcher, Evan put on the headphones and listened to the various soothing sounds. He was to keep them on until it was silent. He estimated it was about thirty minutes before that happened, at which time he removed the headphones.

“And how do you feel?” The researcher asked.

“Fine,” Evan replied.

“Do you notice anything strange?”

Evan shrugged, not realizing his body had completely changed -- transforming him into the person who participated in the experiment right before him. Even though he still wore his own clothes he was now a woman, and he didn’t even realize it...

Counselor

“Why the hell did you bring me here, Liz? The last thing we need right now is a marriage counselor.”

“Because you’ve been acting weird ever since the Great Shift, Hank.”

“Of course I have been! I got stuck in the body of a chick! I’m acting weird because it IS weird! Then you make me go to the this counselor and you insist I wear a skirt! I hate having to wear your clothes as it is.”

“Very good. Now save all that for when we see the counselor.”

Heart Swap (Part 3)

Click here for Part 1.
Click here for Part 2.
After changing into some more comfortable clothing, Ash went out to look for Manaphy. It felt weird hunting Pokemon while in Lillie’s body, and he was probably overly cautious as to make sure not to harm it. But with Pikachu by his side, he was sure he could solve this problem. But as days passed, nothing got resolved. They didn’t find Manaphy and Ash was still stuck in Lillie’s body...

Heart Swap (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Ash’s first order of business was to find his Pokemon. When he came across Pikachu, he was worried about how he would explain this. Luckily, Ash’s bond with the electric mouse Pokemon was very strong and Pikachu recognized his trainer instantly, no matter what body he currently had. Reunited with his best friend, Ash now knew the next part of his task would be to track down a Manaphy to help reverse this Heart Swap and get his own body back!

Thursday, May 9, 2019

Heart Swap (Part 1)

It was widely known that Pokemon raised in the Alolan region turned out slightly different than their original counterparts. When a rare Manaphy was smuggled into the region, few could’ve anticipated the events. The mythical Pokemon’s Heart Swap power quickly became magnified and trainers across the region soon became affected. When Ash suddenly found himself in Lillie’s body, he couldn’t contain his shock. He let out an ear-piercing scream, which only made him even more distraught once he heard his now higher pitched voice.

Sizes

Shortly after The Great Shift, an abandoned store was set up in a manner that allowed people to drop off clothes that no longer fit or pick up new items that might. Greg had gone every day. He hated being a woman; he knew nothing about women’s sizes. The first day, he just grabbed a bunch of stuff. Once he thought he figured out his size, he grabbed more items the next day. But he found that sizes weren’t exactly consistent. It was obnoxious as he kept going back, playing what felt like a game of guess and check.

Sudden Collapse (Part 3)

Click here for Part 1.
Click here for Part 2.
As bad as Gabrielle’s home life seemed to be, her work life was worse. Nick wasn’t exactly thrilled to be an executive assistant at a fashion magazine. He also wasn’t happy about having to wear a skirt. When he arrived on Monday morning, he was immediately called into the boss’s office and berated for not remembering the coffee. He just gave her a blank expression as she babbled on and on, seemingly enjoying the sound of her own voice.

He began wondering if he actually died after collapsing. Living Gabrielle’s life didn’t seem so much like a body swap as it did like his own personal hell.

Sudden Collapse (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Before Nick could think too much about the woman now was, another woman approached. She started babbling about her precious daughter and the traumatic experience she just witnessed. Nick very quickly realized the woman was talking about him. He found out this body’s name was Gabrielle, and she was in her 20s and still lived with a very overbearing mother.

Gabrielle’s mom was shocked her “baby” had seen a man die right in front of her and took her to see a psychiatrist the very next day. Nick wasn’t quite sure what to say. He just put his feet up on the table and stayed quiet most of the time. Mostly, he wanted to talk about who he really was; about the fact that he wasn’t Gabrielle at all. But with her mom insisting on sitting in, he found it quite impossible to share this fact.

Sunday, May 5, 2019

Sudden Collapse (Part 1)

Nick was in a state of shock. He had just felt a little light headed, and the next thing he know he was watching his own body collapse onto the ground. He hadn’t quite realized how he was able to see his own body collapse, he was more concerned with the bloody wound he could see on his own head. He called out for help, suddenly becoming aware of the higher pitched voice coming from his mouth. He could see himself over there because he was over here -- in someone else’s body! A woman’s body! None of his made any sense whatsoever!

Eventually, the neighbors returned home with disappointing news. No one had found Eric’s body, the kid, or the body swapping gun. No one heard of any additional swaps either. The old eccentric inventor told everyone he’d start working on a new version right away, though it may take some time to complete. Until then, everyone was stuck. Eric felt particularly awkward to be stuck with Riri Nakamoro’s body. At least she offered to loan his some clothes -- though it seemed she exclusively owned dresses and heeled footwear. He often thought about buying some less feminine stuff, but he kept hoping things would be resolved any day now.

Months passed.

The old man had eventually finished the new version of the body swapping gun. It took a while to figure out who to swap with who. Eric waited, knowing he was going to be one of the last to swap back since his body was still missing. He knew Riri would want her own body back, even though he was kind of getting used to it at this point. He started doing the math as to who he might wind up as in the end...

Several hours passed, and no one seemed to return. Not one of the swapped neighbors nor the kid with the body swapping gun. In fact, the first person to come by Eric’s door was Mr. Nakamoro. He was certainly surprised to see what he thought was hit wife lounging about in Eric’s house wearing a bikini.

He didn’t seem happy.

In fact, Mr. Nakamoro yelled a whole lot in Japanese, and Eric was glad he didn’t understand a word of it. But Eric did try to quickly calm him down to explain what happened. Since Mr. Nakamoro lived in the neighborhood, the idea of body swapping seemed reasonable enough, but why the bikini?

Eric honestly didn’t know either. She had just been wearing it when they swapped, and he hadn’t changed. He also explained how he was getting worried that they weren’t going to find the ray gun to swap everyone back to normal.

Click here for Part 2.
Most of the swapped neighbors went out in search of Eric’s body and the body swapping gun, but Eric was a little more hesitant. It wasn’t that he didn’t want to find his body and swap back as soon as possible, he just wasn’t exactly comfortable with the idea of running around in Riri’s body. Instead, he volunteered to stay behind in case the kid came back. Mostly that meant lounging about on the couch and watching television. He didn’t even bother changing out of the bikini. After a few hours, he finally did start to feel more comfortable, but he was also starting to worry that no one seemed to have found his body or the body swapping gun yet.

Wednesday, May 1, 2019

Saturday (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Even with everything strange that had happened in his neighborhood over the past few months, it was still hard for Eric to accept that he was now inside the body of his neighbor, Riri Nakamoro. He felt the long hair on his head, the weight on his chest, the slenderness of his arms and waist. It was all so weird, but why would she do this to him?

Simply put, she didn’t. As he soon learned, the old inventor across the street had created a body swapping ray gun that had gotten into the hands of one of the kids on the street. While Eric was now in Riri’s body, Riri was in the body of the old man. The old man was in the body of a young, female college student on the block. About a dozen others were swapped in some way. No one could find the kid’s body or Eric’s body that now had the kid inside. Things were going to be messy for a while.

Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Saturday (Part 1)

At this point, Eric figured he should be used to strange things happening in his neighborhood. An eccentric scientist had moved in last year, and his experiments were often bonkers. One time, he made half the houses on the block disappear. Then there was the time everyone became elderly for an afternoon.

And this Saturday, he noticed his neighbor, Mrs. Nakamoro on his lawn. She seemed to be fooling around and playing some sort of game while wearing a bikini. Eric approached her and she pulled out what looked to be a toy gun. Eric tried to ask serious questions, but it seemed she just wanted to be silly. As he turned to go back inside, he expected the gun to fire some water of bubbles at him. Instead it stung with an odd tingle. He seemed to go lifeless for a moment.

The next thing he knew, he saw his own body running down the street with the toy gun. He was shocked to realize that he now had Mrs. Nakamoro’s body!

Border Crossing

Luis had saved up money by doing dangerous odd jobs for criminals and had some relatives abroad send him some cash. He needed the money to pay someone who offered to help smuggle him across the border. He was afraid to hand it over to the large, surly man. The man simply looked at it before leading Luis into a moldy basement with a machine attached to a rickety chair. An older man sat by the chair near a control panel. The older man strapped Luis in and explained they now just needed to wait for someone to sit in the other chair situated a few miles north of the border. Once someone did, he would hit a switch and swap Luis’s brain into that body. Not only would Luis be across the border, but he’d also be in the body of a citizen and unable to be deported.

Luis had a lot of questions. Why would anyone up there voluntarily sit in a chair that would stick them in his body? The old man explained the chair was disguised well; the person wouldn’t even know they were sitting in such a chair until it was too late. Just as Luis began to doubt stealing someone else’s body and damning them to his own poor, difficult life, a light on the old man’s console started flashing.

The next thing Luis knew, he noticed the smell of flowers instead of mold. The sun was shining on him instead of a dim bulb. And to top it all off, he was in the body of a woman! The other side of the machine had been disguised as a hair dryer in a beauty salon. It certainly made sense, but it was still difficult for Luis to gather himself. He had made it across the border safely; he’d certainly never be detected in this body, but it was the body of a woman!

Melinda (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Stacy was a feeling a little disgusted by how Martin and Melinda seemed to be acting. They were silly, acting quite a bit like a stereotypical giggly girl. Eventually, Stacy excused herself to the bathroom just to take a break.

“Is there a reason you tried to play me off as the real Melinda,” Vincent asked Martin.

“You know Stacy. She was probably worried enough about me. If I tell her how I swapped half a dozen or so people, she’d freak. Not to mention I’m still trying to figure out how to tell her I lost the thing.”

“What exactly is the plan if they don’t find it? I mean, how can we explain half a dozen Melindas running around?”

Martin shrugged. He hadn’t really thought this fully out.

Saturday, April 27, 2019

Melinda (Part 1)

Stacy had been a little reluctant to lend the Medallion of Zulu to Martin. Heck, she had felt foolish for showing him the thing in the first place. Eventually, she relented and allowed him to use it for two days, agreeing to meet up with him at a restaurant at that time to get it back.

Arriving at the agreed upon time and place Stacy sat and waited until two identical women showed up at her table. Stacy did a face palm, knowing Martin must’ve screwed up.

“Hey Stacy,” He explained, “I just need the medallion for two more hours. I turned myself into a copy of Melinda here, and the time’s not up yet. Is that cool?”

Stacy groaned. This was par for the course for Martin.

Tight

Simon wasn’t happy about switching bodies with Claire, but he was told it would only be for a few days while the researchers worked to repair the machine that caused the swap in the first place. Getting dressed in the pajamas she had left for him and getting to bed was easy, but looking at the outfits she left for him to wear for the daytime puzzled him. It wasn’t the stuff like bras either. It was just that everything seemed so tight! He picked up a pair of pants she had given him that seemed to be half her size. They were stretchy, but he was sure there was a good chance of breaking the seams. If he did manage to squeeze himself into them, they were going to be very tight and leaving little to the imagination. He couldn’t believe he was even going to attempt putting them on, but it was not like he had much of a choice.

Everything Zen

Harvey returned to the secluded location after his first discovered it a year ago. It was when he first visited this spot months ago that he felt a moment of total zen or pure enlightenment when his body began to spontaneously transform. He became a woman, and he didn’t question it as he spent time with a foreign body. It felt very right for most of the time, but that had changed recently. And that’s why he returned. He figured the same phenomenon that transformed him in the first place would return him to normal if he came back. But as he stood there breathing in deeply, he started to doubt this. He stood longer, but nothing was happening. Was he doomed to stay in this body forever?

Park

Jeremy and his two best friends would often head off to the park to sneak in a few cigarettes. Even though they had all recently turned eighteen, they still wanted to hide their habit from their parents. It seemed one day they decided to do this a little too close to the playground area where a young mother was his her two toddlers. She noticed the three teens and began yelling at them, telling them to put out their cigarettes or she’d call the police.

Jeremy wanted to yell right back, but he never got the chance. A flash of light suddenly engulfed them all. When the light cleared from his vision, he realized something terrible -- he had swapped bodies with the young mother! Silently freaking out, he walked unsteadily on unfamiliar heels until he sat on a piece of playground equipment.

As bad as he felt he had things, he quickly realized his two friends had it worse. They swapped bodies with the woman’s two young toddlers. Jeremy might have been uncomfortable, but his friends were practically back to wearing diapers! It only got worse when they all realized the swap wasn’t limited to the local park...

Assassin

Ever since the government introduced top secret body swapping technology, Agent X’s job as an undercover assassin had been a breeze. He’d locate his target, find a scapegoat to swap bodies with, take out his target, and then swap into another body -- ideally back to his own, but in a pinch it really didn’t matter. For his latest mission, he had temporary stolen the body of the target’s own wife in order to make the hit. Even though he had a safe distance, security was still tight this far away. However, with this body, no one had even given him a second glance. Now it was just a matter of aiming and firing. Once it was over, he probably wouldn’t get far; he’d probably have to swap with a guard, and once he did that, he’d likely have to kill this body on site. He knew it seemed thrilling, but it was actually pretty routine at this point...

Friends

Graham had been trying to track down all of his friends in the wake of the Great Shift. Quite a few swapped between each other, but it took him a while for him to find his best friend, Tom. After about a month, he discovered that Tom had swapped with a woman who lived a few towns over. After a short phone call, they agreed to meet up, and Graham was off in his car for the hour long drive. He knew Tom was going to be a woman now, but it was absolutely floored when he saw his friend was also in a wheelchair.

“I’ve weirdly gotten used to it rather quickly,” Tom said with a smile, “She lost the use of her legs due to a disease. She told me it will get worse as I get older, but I’m learning to live with it so far. I hesitated to reach out. I didn’t want people feeling bad for me or anything. It’s all fine. Everyone’s had to deal with a lot of weird things in the Shift; this is just the thing that I have to deal with...”

Electrical Storm

The freakish electrical storm seemed to come out of nowhere. The pilot hadn’t even seen it on his radar before the plane was flying right through it. The turbulence was probably the wildest any of the passengers had ever experienced, and just when it seemed to be over the lights flickered and about half of the people on the plane ended up switching bodies. The pilot made an emergency landing on the closest airstrip.

When Nathan exited the plane, he was doing so as a new person, quite literally. In one of the more dramatic swaps, he ended up as a different gender in the body of a woman on board named Deborah. He knew it was going to be hard to adjust, but for now he was just thankful to be alive. He realized it would’ve been quite easy for one or both of the pilots to have ended up swapping bodies, which might’ve resulted in a crash. He’d just have to figure out how to deal with this.

Elsewhere

Alan looked intently at the snowglobe with the man on a motorcycle inside. He could’ve sworn that just a moment ago he had been that man riding that motorcycle in a snowstorm. He was about to swerve, crash, and likely die, but instead he found himself here sitting in a chair. Had he imagined it all? Had it always been this woman? He didn’t remember being a woman, but he clearly was one. The only life he remembered was the one that seemed to exist only in his imagination while staring into the snowglobe.

Smashed

Ethan first got the remote several years ago. He was amazed at its power. With the device, he could swap any body parts between two people and choose to have them notice it or not. For the first few years, he used it to swap various parts amongst other people. But recently, he had been using it on himself and swapping his entire body. He usually found himself swapping with women out of curiosity. He was sitting on the balcony of his apartment with his latest body when he knocked the remote off. It shattered on the street into a million pieces. He began to cry. He had been curious about being a woman, but he certainly didn’t want to be stuck as one!

Around Campus

Most students had heard Candice Van Wein attended school at their college, but only a few could attest to actually seeing her. She was the daughter of the biggest donor and she often skipped most of the time and sat in the back on the few days she actually showed up. Then it all changed. Suddenly, she was arriving early, sitting in front, and feverishly taking notes. She had already been the talk of the campus, but this took things to a whole new level.

Of course, no one ever approached her. Everyone was far too intimated. But if they did, she’d happily share a story. And that story was that she wasn’t really Candice; she wasn’t even really a she. Inside Candice’s body was Peter Wen. Peter was a bit of a genius and developed a body swapper, but he was also quite poor. He figured the easiest way to get ahead in life was to steal the body of a rich heiress. It was hard tracking her down, but it was also instantly worth it once he stole her body and her life.

Corporate Sabotage

Being fired at 4PM on a Friday and getting escorted out by security was humiliating for Jared. He was one of the company’s leading technical biomedic researchers and not even being able to tidy up his work or say goodbye to his co-workers felt insulting. But he knew that the company didn’t know a thing about the backups he had on his home computer. He simply opened up some of the files there and got to work. The main source code still needed some work, and he spent much of the weekend with some tweaks. In other files, he found DNA records for the entire company, including the CEO. On Sunday evening, he hooked himself up to his computer and ran the code. The next thing he knew, he was transformed into an exact copy of Laura Ellis, the CEO of his now former company.

He woke up early on Monday, dressing in an outfit his ex-wife had left behind when she divorced him. The leather dress wasn’t exactly something Ms. Ellis would wear, but he figured no one would question it. After all, he otherwise looked exactly like her down to her DNA. Then he arrived at the office at 8AM, entered Ms. Ellis’s office and closed the glass door. This was long before she usually showed up, and he figured it was more than enough time. Laura was one of those people dumb enough to write passwords down on her desk and arrogant enough to demand access to everything. Then it was just a matter of deleting large chunks of code and even larger chunks of backup data. He sauntered out of the glass door of Ms. Ellis’s office a little before 9, satisfied in the corporate sabotage of his former employer.

Roll with It

“How can you be so calm about this?” A frustrated Melinda practically cried.

“I’m not,” Jeff replied with a smile while kicking his feet up onto a table, “You’re the last person I would want in my body for a month. Everyone thinks your neurotic and kind of stuck up. Do you honestly think I want to have to deal with that reputation while in your body, or worse, to have you give people that sort of impression while you’re in my body? Ugh, it’s terrible. But I also know that this swap is for a month, and there’s nothing I can do about that. And so I’m just sort of trying to roll with it. Maybe that’s something you should try too. You can’t just spend every minute of your life acting like your life is over.”

Buying Socks

With nothing exciting going on, the gray, cloudy Saturday seemed like a perfect opportunity for Kevin to go to the mall and buy some socks. Socks weren’t exactly a thrilling thing to buy, but he was certainly in need of the boring essential item. It was one of those malls where the stores were slowly closing, and Kevin meandered from store to store whether they were still open or not. Before he actually reached his destination, an Asian woman approached him with an odd twinkle in her eye. She hugged him quickly and then ran. He couldn’t figure out why she had done that, but when he took another step he felt something strange. His feet didn’t quite hit the floor evenly, and he soon discovered the heels on his feet. But it wasn’t just his shoes that were off, it was his entire body! It didn’t take him long to figure out that he was now in the body of the woman who had given him a hug just moments ago -- he was even wearing her clothes and holding her bag. He slowly made him way to the food court to sit down. What was he going to do? He didn’t know anything about this woman. He didn’t know where she lived, and he didn’t even have a change of clothes! It seemed he was going to have to buy a lot more than socks on this trip!

Paris (Part 3)

Click here for Part 1.
Click here for Part 2.
Eventually, Leo tired of exploring on his own. However, instead of returning to his hotel, he found a few other tourists who had been swapped as well. Sure enough, before the Great Shift they had all been male (like him) and middle aged (like him). But now they were all women and all gorgeous. It seemed like a rather remarkable coincidence, yet there is was. The group continued to explore the city together until late in the night...

Paris (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Doreen didn’t know what she was missing! The streets of Paris were alive, despite the Great Shift, and Leo was having a fabulous time. At times, he forgot that he was now a beautiful young woman, and at other times he embraced his new body fully. Was he having a wonderful time because Paris was a wonderful city, or was it because he was experiencing it with a wonderful new body? Did it matter? As the hours past, he even stopped thinking about his wife back at the hotel. He was just having too good a time!

Paris (Part 1)

Leo and Doreen only had one week of vacation each year, and this time they decided to spend it in Paris. Of course, neither could’ve expected the Great Shift to strike moments after landing with the couple now finding themselves in completely different bodies. Doreen was crushed; she wanted nothing more than to stay in their hotel room and cry. Leo, on the other hand, decided that being a woman wasn’t a reason to stay cooped up in a room all week. This was their only vacation! How could his wife not enjoy it!? So he went out without her, exploring the streets on his own with his new body...

Day Late

The curse was supposed to only last a single day. This was something Matt thought he could handle. And so he did. Spending a day as Catherine wasn’t too bad; though being a woman was certainly something he didn’t want to be stuck as. However, the next morning he woke up, he found he was still in her body. He screamed. He yelled. It was supposed to be over; why was he still stuck as Catherine? He didn’t want it to last a moment more, but yet he was still her, even after the curse should’ve been over. What was going on?

Witness Protection

Marvin mumbled under his breath as he typed the address of his new job into the GPS. After testifying against the mob, he had been promised a new life where no one would ever recognize him, but he never expected anything like this! In order to protect his identity, he underwent an experimental procedure that rewrote his DNA. When he ended up as a woman, he was shocked but he was also sure it was true that no one would ever recognize him. He never dressed in a feminine manner, opting for sneakers and sweatsuits instead. Despite starting a new job, today would be no exception. And, in fact, most things about being a woman annoyed him. Sometimes he wondered if the mob had someone on the inside and had arranged this procedure to torture him. Of course, if that was true, he’d still technically be in danger, wouldn’t he? No matter how safe everyone told him he was, he’d still be spending the rest of his life looking behind his back.

Repeat

When he first found the Medallion of Zulu, Lucas was elated. He could use the odd trinket to turn himself into anyone, which he did quite frequently by plucking a random piece of clothing from the dryers at the local laundromat. But when he was out in a borrowed body one day, an electrical fire destroyed his apartment. Luckily, he had the medallion with him at the time, but all his clothes had been burnt away in the fire. He had no way to get back to normal. Worse still was that he had no access to his money. He got resourceful.

It all started with the technique he had perfected back when he was simply experimenting with being random people. He’d pluck some clothes from a dryer at a laundromat. He’d transform himself using the clothes and spend twelve hours or so in their body. After which, he was often quite tired and hungry, but then he’d repeat the process. He’d go into another laundromat, steal some more clothes, and transform himself again. The fortunate result was that he’d be no more tired or hungry than this new body had been when they took off the clothes. As a result, he never needed to eat or sleep; each swap would rejuvenate him; and he had been young and old, male and female; every single race you could imagine.

Dead End Job

Once the Great Shift swapped Chuck into the body of a woman, he thought things were going to be miserable. However, they quickly turned out better than expected. When his dead-end job at the local fast food restaurant reopened, he soon found that no one bugged him about following the dress code any more; he figured it didn’t hurt when he arrived showing a little skin. He’d often slack off and eat burgers and shakes all the time. His manager used to bug him to get back to work and dock his pay for the food he ate; now that food was free and the manager just stared. But the weirdest and best part? The tips! Suddenly customers were just giving him tips; this was particularly weird since it was the kind of place where employees didn’t really get tips. Chuck was really now thinking the Great Shift was the best thing that could’ve possibly happened to him...

Straight

Jason still wasn’t quite used to the sound of his heels clicking as he walked. As he entered the locker room, he expected someone to call him out to tell him he wasn’t supposed to be there. But the spell had swapped his mind into Lei’s body while his own lay lifeless in his bed. This was his chance to see women in all sorts of undress. However, while he was nervous about getting caught, he soon learned his body wasn’t reacting to the excitement as he expected. The spell had almost worked TOO well. Because he had Lei’s body, he also had her hormones. Jason realized that since he was now in the body of a straight woman, he WAS a straight woman.

Weird Enough (Part 3)

Click here for Part 1.
Click here for Part 2.
Jim’s urge to use the restroom grew, but he still felt uncomfortable with other women around. So he left the communal room with stalls to find something a little more private. It took quite a while before he finally found a private room, and he was practically ready to pee his pants by the time he entered.

After finishing up, he sure hoped everything else about being stuck in a woman’s body wouldn’t be so bad, or that he’d be able to swap back into his own body sooner as opposed to later.

Weird Enough (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Though there were plenty of empty stalls, Jim was nervous due to the fact that one was occupied. He figured he’d just wait by the sink until the person was done, then enter one himself in order to use the restroom. But the woman inside was taking a long time. By the time she did finally leave, another woman had come in and started. He felt weird just being this close to women as they used the bathroom, but he still wanted privacy for himself so he continued to wait. Meanwhile, his bladder was really starting to build up. He was going to have to relieve himself soon, regardless of who was going at the same time.
