Jason arrived at the meeting room first and took a seat. He had been able to hack into the alien communications and was listening to their concerns about his new intellect. They were also discussing a recently discovered threat called the Xlyians. The Xlyians were known to completely cripple crews when they attacked, and they were approaching the ship. Jason knew he had to negotiate with the aliens quickly if he hoped to escape before the Xlyians arrived.

Understanding

When Tony saw what his daughter Megan was planning to go out wearing, he flipped out. Much like fathers do when they feel their daughter isn’t dressed appropriately. However, Megan wasn’t backing down. The screaming match lasted for nearly 15 minutes. It didn’t end with either side giving up though; it ended when a super-natural force known as the Role Exchanger decided to intervene. It decided both needed a better understanding of the other. Both became silent when they found themselves in the other’s body. Tony slouched down on the couch. Now that he had Megan’s body, he guessed that he could change clothes, but he really didn’t understand why he had to. He was comfortable, but more important, he felt sexy. Meanwhile, Megan became horrified looking at her former body. It was one thing when she was wearing that outfit, but the thought of her father dressed like that (even if he had her body) grossed her out. She sat down at tried to rationalize with him about why he had to go change. The argument quickly got heated again.

Permanent record

Quinn cursed his luck when he got caught scheming his latest prank against Lily, one of the school’s unpopular nerdy girls. He sat in the Principal’s office awaiting a punishment that would likely suspend him for a week and kick him  off the football team. But the Principal suggested an alternative sensitivity training, one that wouldn’t show up on his permanent record. Quinn, thinking it would be an easy way out, quickly agreed. During lunch, he met with Lily and the Principal in the school’s boiler room where a strange device was set up. Quinn was a little scared as he and Lily were strapped into the machine. A moment later, Quinn found himself in Lily’s body! He wanted to throw up! The Principal told him that he’d be spending the next week in her body. He nearly cried, but it was still better than being kicked off the football team! He walked the school in a state of disbelief for a while before going into the bathroom to splash water on his face and hopefully awaken from this nightmare. Inside two popular girls hurled insults at him; he felt humiliated. He thought about telling them who he really was, but realizing that if anyone knew he was going through this, it would be humiliating for the rest of his life. He just knew he had to do his best to get through the week.

"BS" (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Brandon was thankful when the cell phone in his hand hang and saw that it was his own number.

“Oh, thank you!” He answered, “I don’t know what I did, but you’ve got to--”

“Shut up!” His own voice responded, “I know you used that dumb ‘BS’ App on me, you piece of shit. Do you think it’s the first time someone has tried to steal my body? I’m calling the cops to throw your ass in jail. Your ass can join him as he rots in a cell somewhere.”

The next day Tom was still trying to come to terms with what had happened to him. Most of his old clothes were ill-fitting on his new body--if they even fit at all--so he had to borrow some from his mom. He felt awkward at first, but soon go so comfortable that he decided to even try wearing some of her heels. He gazed out the window as he thought about his new goal in life of becoming a mother. It would mean that he’d probably have to find a husband. He wasn’t sure if he was ready for that. He had only been a woman for a day; the thought of settling down didn’t trouble him, but the thought of sleeping with a man (certainly needed to produce a child) still seemed out of the question to him. Then he started to consider sperm banks. He daydreamed the day away, thinking of holding a baby in his arms.

Notice (Part 2)

Bert made his way back to his car, still completely unaware that his body had been swapped with a woman’s (the lab techs had stealthily switched the pair’s keys and other immediately needed items). As he unlocked the door, he heard a woman shout, “Honey, I know you probably think you’re young enough to pull that off, but your ass is hanging out of the bottom of those shorts. Some of the rest of us don’t appreciate it.”

Bert looked around hoping the catch a glimpse of whoever this woman was talking about, but didn’t spy another soul.

“Don’t pretend like you don’t know I’m talking to you,” The woman continued.

Bert was baffled as he got into his car, finding it strange that he had to adjust his seat.

Todd sat on the edge of a flower bed by some shops in an effort to collect his thoughts and develop a plan. He thought about asking people around about the items in his bag, maybe they could translate some of it and offer some ideas about where to find the woman in his body. He was about to pull them out when a sharp feeling came from his stomach. He hadn’t eaten all day, and he was hungry! The hunger reminded him of his new body; he wondered if things would taste different. He rubbed his stomach and looked around for a place to get some lunch. Then he slowly moved his rubbing down to his legs--his smooth, smooth legs. He moved his hands into his inner thigh, but stopped before getting too dirty; he was in public, after all! But after looking in the mirror and now looking down, he couldn’t help but focus on how cute his new body was!

Jerry ignored Phil’s rants and brought the boat around to where Crystal had jumped in. He ran to the side to see his body in the water still floundering about. He threw down a life preserver.

“My body aches!” She yelled up at him.

“I told you we should just wait for the tide to bring the medallion in!” He yelled back at her, “My bones always tend to ache while swimming! I’m glad you’re still okay!”

She sighed, figuring he was right. She couldn’t help but think the next few days in Jerry’s body would be absolutely awful.

Who's Who?

Paul paced nervously back and forth by the altar at the church. It was only about an hour before he’d be married to the most wonderful woman ever. But then he felt queasy and collapsed. He slowly opened his eyes to see his bride-to-be screaming. This was bad luck! He wasn’t supposed to see her before the wedding! She was also screaming that her name was Phil. Uncle Phil? He had thought his bride had gone crazy until he realized that he was also in a different body. He was in the body of her maid-of-honor, Lucy. What was going on here? How was Uncle Phil in his bride’s body? How was he in Lucy’s body? Was everyone in the wrong body? Where was his wife? Who was in his body? Who was who?

Gas station

Diane pulled her minivan into the gas station with her son, Harry. While she pumped gas, he went in to grab a chocolate milk. A few minutes passed before a woman exited a gas station carrying a chocolate milk. She got into the back of Diane’s minivan and spoke, “Come on, Mom! Let’s go!”

Diane was confused, but not as confused as Mark, who was sitting in a nearby sportscar. His wife had just gone in for a pack of cigarettes. A boy came out and got into his passenger seat. “Can you believe the clerk refused to sell me cigarettes, Honey? He said I looked underage!”

Meanwhile, an old man inside smiled as he paid the gas attendant $100. A small fee for being able to try out his mind-switching device on unsuspecting
victims.

Old man

Ryan felt terrible for his sister Gwen. The Great Shift had really screwed her over. He had been lucky--swapping bodies with a guy about the same age as him. But Gwen ended up in the body of an old man. She tried her best to continue with her life as though nothing had happened, but it was just so awkward to see a senior citizen dressed up like a 20-year-old woman.

Delicious

Angela had swapped bodies with her husband, Frank, in hopes of teaching him a lesson about how hard her housework each day was. However, he was quick to adapt to her life, cooking delicious dinners and finishing the cleaning in record time. Plus, he loved not having to go to the office everyday. It was going to be hard to convince him to switch back!

Responsibility (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
Herman felt a little bad about impersonating this woman’s daughter, but he couldn’t resist the temptation once the Great Shift swapped him into the young body. He had the chance at a new life, to be young and carefree again. He had a stressful life with a lot of responsibility; he jumped at the possibility for a life free of worry.

And so neither Herman nor Jack ever told the other that neither were who they appeared to be. Both thought the other hadn’t been shifted. Herman kept it a secret from Jack to live out the fantasy of being a child; Jack kept it a secret from Herman thinking that a child needed a stabilizing force in life, like an unshifted mother.

Duplicate

Tyler was showing off a weird ray gun he had found to his best friends Jake and Roger. All three boys were talking about how cool it was when it went off in Tyler’s hand, zapping his two friends. The beam from the ray transformed both boys into an exact copy of Tyler’s sister, Tara! As bad as that was, it got worse when Tyler discovered the change wasn’t only physical; both of his friends thought they actually were Tara! They started picking on Tyler, as Tara often did, but then they noticed each other. Both started freaking out at what they thought was a duplicate of themselves. Tyler zapped them again, hoping to fix the situation...

Geoffrey was feeling pretty humiliated trying to hitch a ride in this body, but what choice did he have? He was so thankful when a car pulled over. However, that thankfulness washed away when a sleazy looking guy walked out.

“Babe! I’ve been looking everywhere for you! Why are you out here? What the hell are you doing?” He asked.

Geoffrey nervously came up with a lie, “I, uh, was feeling exposed in this bikini. I was going to go home and change into something more modest.”

“You’re always so picky.” The man sighed, “But you packed like three alternatives in the car. You couldn’t just gone to the bathroom.”

“Er...right...” Geoffret reluctantly agreed as he got into the man’s car and the two headed back to the beach.

Howard's soul slowly came to rest within the woman’s body, and the moment he had control he squealed out in delight. He threw his arms and legs up in the air with a joyous shout. He received many stares from other people in the room, none of whom had any idea how or why this woman was suddenly making such a scene. But he didn’t mind the stares; none of them could understand what he was feeling right now. How could they?

“Do you have any questions?” Daneille asked Roger as they walked for a bit.

“Not really. I know where you live. What else do I need to know?” He responded.

“Anything about the basics of being a woman?”

“I’m sure I can figure it out. It felt strange to be in your body at first, but it’s already feeling quite natural. Honestly, I thought it would feel a lot different. I thought the weight of your breasts would make me trip or something or that I’d be constantly blowing your long hair out of my face. But I barely notice any of it unless I really focus on it.”

Slacker

The phone rang, but Dennis was hesitant to pick it up. He had always been a  slacker in the shadow of his over-achieving, Emmy-winning, television producing sister. She had constantly gone on and on about how difficult and stressful her job was. He wasn’t sure how he was going to deal with it after mysteriously swapping bodies with her that morning.

“Hello?” He answered nervously, but was soon relieved to hear his own voice on the other end, “You know, Sis, you’re the first call I’ve gotten all day. You’re always saying how tough your job is, but this has been a piece of cake so far! I think that television might just be a perfect job for a slacker like me!”

A.N.Y.T.H.I.N.G. (Part 1)

Jim just put the finishing touches on his new invention, calling it the A.N.Y.T.H.I.N.G. machine. The initials didn’t mean squat, but the machine could copy traits from any person onto another just from a mere thought. With it, a person could do anything! Jim activated the machine for a test, and within minutes he looked like an exact duplicate of his girlfriend, Maya with one small exception--he had the athletic ability of a professional basketball player. He went to the court to see if it worked. He quickly drew a crowd as everyone was shocked to see a short girl on the court with such skills! The dunking seemed to defy gravity! Jim smiled! It worked! But he hoped he could get passed the crowd and back to his machine. Plus, he wasn’t sure he’d want his girlfriend to catch him!

With his new intelligence, Jason quickly hatched a new plan. He spoke the alien language into the headset to unlock 2-way communication, and requested a sit down talk with the aliens, suggesting a meeting room on the ship. They were baffled that Jason had been able to speak their language and were even more taken aback by his intimate knowledge of the ship’s layout. Jason was no longer afraid of the aliens in the slightest, but they were now very afraid of him.

Todd was thankful to have the hotel room in case he needed to return to it or spend the night, but he was hoping he would find his body and a way to return to normal before then. He started running around the streets of Chinatown, but soon realized he was doing it without any sort of plan. He stopped at a shopping center to craft his course of action, but paused at a mirror in front of one of the stores first. It was the first time he had stopped to look at his new body. He moved a hand or a foot and laughed to see the Asian woman reflected do the same. It was hard to believe that was now him. He had to admit, she was cute. If he had to be stuck in someone else’s body, it was hard for him to imagine that he could’ve done any better.

Ryan was glad the champagne was done--though the other women were quick to hand him another bottle--but he looked around to discover that his fiancé was nowhere to be seen.

“Where Amber?” He shouted, “Where is she?”

“Relax, Megan,” One of the women responded with a wink, “She’s off with the stripper. Having a ‘private dance,’ remember?”

Ryan was desperate to get his fiancĂ© out of that situation, but his drunken mind couldn’t come up with a good solution. “I want a private dance with the stripper!” He shouted, “No, I want to SLEEP with the striper! No, I want a threesome with Amber, the stripper, and me!”

The other women hooted and hollered; they were ready to make the request a reality.

Basketball

The day started out with such promise. Jimmy woke up excited for the first day of his school’s basketball season; this year he was going to be team captain. He laughed when his sister told him she was thinking about trying out. He told her girls didn’t have any place on the court. He regretted those words when the Great Shift hit, and he found himself in her body. He knew she was talented at the game, but even now in her body, he had trouble dismissing his old sexist ways.

Notice (Part 1)

Bert had been out of work for a while. To make some cash, he often volunteered for experiments at the local college’s research center. The latest one offered a lot of money, but most details were confidential. He was cautious, but he really needed the money. As they attached a device to his head, they promised the experiment was proven to not be harmful. He felt a quick zap and was then told he could leave. He was puzzled that it was all over so soon. He took his first payment and went to his car. As he walked to the car, he noticed unfamiliar looks from men. He hadn’t realized the zap had switched his body with another participant. The experiment was to see how long it would take for him to notice that he was in a woman’s body, and how he would react when he noticed.

Once it sunk in, Phil became quite angry at Jerry. He started yelling that Jerry had stolen his wife’s body and that somehow he caused her to jump in an effort to keep the body forever. Jerry tried his best to calm the hysterical man. The boat would be turned around soon, and they’d be able to pick up Crystal. It was likely that she wouldn’t have been able to retrieve the medallion, but at least she’d still be alive! Phil grunted, asking what kind of living would it be with her stuck in Jerry’s ugly old body. Jerry ignored the insult and explained that both Crystal and he believed the medallion was the source of the swap. Just as he explained before, the best chance of finding it again would be to wait by the beach and let the tide wash it ashore.

After some time crying his eyes out, Tom just continued to sit there without saying a word. He began to rethink his life. He realized that he actually wanted to do something with his life. This woman was probably only a few years older than he was, and she already had a baby depending on her. He thought about that for a moment. At first, he was a little grossed out. He thought about the fact that his body had once pushed a baby out from between his legs. He son couldn’t get the thought out of his head, and he soon realized that’s what he wanted. He wanted to give birth to a baby; he wanted to be a mother.

Keeping quiet

When Jon found himself in a woman’s body, he afraid of saying anything, thinking people would think he was crazy. But he couldn’t imagine that he was the only one in a new body, so he walked the streets. However, everyone appeared to be acting calm and normal. He began thinking he was the only one (or maybe he was actually a woman and he HAD gone crazy). It actually turned out that everyone had been swapped, but all were just too afraid to say anything about it, just like Jon.

Library

Jay sighed as he collapsed onto the pile of books. He had been searching the library to try and find the spell Andrea had used to switch bodies with him. It had to be here somewhere, but so far he turned up with nothing. Then a thought entered his head. Maybe Andrea had checked the book out of the library, which meant that it was probably in her room somewhere. He rushed out of the library to try and find it.

Day out (Part 1)

Will couldn’t believe how angry his girlfriend, Erica, was. All he wanted to do was go out hiking alone, and she exploded, claiming he didn’t want to spend time with her. He tried to calm her down, but he couldn’t get a single word out. He ran out feeling woozy, passing out just outside. He awoke on Erica’s floor feeling strange. It took only a moment for him to realize why; he was in Erica’s body! He sat up, feeling the sexy curves of her body move in ways he wasn’t quite used to. He called out for her to no response. He knew she was angry, but stealing his body was uncalled for (not to mention unexplainable!). He knew where she was headed, and he was going to get his body back.

Jason went around the room absorbing knowledge. He thought about using the souls to get revenge. It would seem fitting. After all, the aliens had messed with what was essentially his soul by putting it in this body. However, he realized that revenge no longer interested him; his mind had evolved beyond that. He also understood why the aliens thought so little of the human brain. Each alien used so much of their brain that they could only absorb the knowledge of one or two souls. By comparison, a human brain seemed practically empty--barely registering thoughts by alien standards. The spare space in Jason’s brain was able to absorb the knowledge of nearly a hundred souls. He was smarter than any alien aboard, and certainly smarter than any human in history.

Todd took a moment to think of what to do next. He tried to search his pockets first. The shorts he wore were so tight that he could barely reach his fingers inside, and they were empty anyway. Then he realized the purse on his shoulder and frantically searched it. Most of what was inside Todd couldn’t understand, but he smiled when he found a wad of cash and a keycard for a nearby hotel. He walk there and went to the front desk. He told them that he had forgotten his room number. Soon he was upstairs. It was a temporary solution. He could use the hotel as a base of operations, but he needed to find his old body and (more importantly) a way to switch himself back into it!
