“It must be here somewhere!” A frustrated Michael screamed as he threw some of Ashleys’ clothes into the air. He had been house-sitting for her this week and had used the Medallion of Zulu to turn himself into a copy of her on the very first day. Throughout the week, he tried on just about every piece of clothing she owned, and he assumed the medallion must have gotten lost somewhere in the pile. He needed to find that medallion into order to transform back into himself. He needed to clean all these clothes. Yet he was also running out of time. There was no way he’d be able to get it all done before Ashley returned, but the last thing he wanted to have to explain is why he looked like an exact copy of her.

It had been a very long, cold walk for Julian, but he was finally back at his home. He could tell whoever was now in his body was somewhat apprehensive about anyone approaching. Julian put on a big smile and showed his hands.

“Look, I know you’re in the wrong body, because that’s my body. I’m in the wrong body too. I think everyone is. I walked a mile to get back here -- it wasn’t easy; I’m not used to being a woman yet. But I wanted to get back to my house. I know where the key is; we can go inside and warm up. I can tell you what I know. We can turn on the TV. All the new reports are talking about this; they’re calling it ‘The Great Shift.’”

The person inside Julian’s body was a little skeptical, but it did make sense. He did find himself suddenly outside in a stranger’s body. It wouldn’t hurt to be warm. Plus, maybe he could really heat things up inside with this Julian guy -- the woman’s body he ended up in seemed to be pretty hot.

Shortly after The Great Shift, rumors started about secret government technology that existed to swap people’s bodies in order to get everyone back to normal. It was a few months before the official announcement and a plan to start swapping people back. Jasper had no desire to sign up. He hadn’t bothered to check if his original body was still alive or the state of the person whose body he currently occupied. As he lifted his leg above his head before a swim, he knew he’d be crazy to ever give this up willingly. He was young again, and he had certainly never been this athletic or flexible. The Great Shift had been a dream that he never wanted to wake up from. There was no way the government or anyone else could force him back into his 70 year old body, and he’d fight it with every bone in his flexible, now 25 year old body if they tried.

Put to Use

Marjorie loved her husband Cliff very much, but she was always a little concerned by the number of guns he kept in the house. He would always say they might need them, but she never saw a need. Then one day, body swapping aliens invaded the planet. Some people swapped with aliens while other people just swapped with each other. While Marjorie was now in an alien’s body, Cliff was in the body of their 20-something year old neighbor, Natalie. Cliff immediately went to his stash of weapons. He wanted to take the fight to the aliens, but Marjorie asked him what he was planning to do. The aliens were mostly in ships high up in the atmosphere. The ones on the planet had stolen bodies and were completely indiscernible from their neighbors and loved ones. Cliff was just feeling glad he was ready -- though he might need to train a bit to adjust for how different this body felt.

Only Have Yourself to Blame

“Honestly, Kelly, you only have yourself to blame,” Thomas said while flicking her off, “You tried to steal my invention, but you had no idea how to use it. You ended up having the damn thing swap my mind into your body and your mind into my old cat’s body. God knows where the cat is with my body. You better believe I’m going to go out for a bit in your body dressed like this. Hope you enjoy peeing in a box and eating catfood while I’m out. You deserve it. If I can ever find my body, I’ll swap us all back, but until then, you’re going to be stuck as a feline, my dear.”

“I came over as fast as I could.” Arturo explained to his girlfriend, “I couldn’t believe I woke up in your body!”

“It’s insane that we seem to have swapped,” Julia replied, “But I think I may need to give you some lessons in being me.”

“Do you know how hard it was for me to find a t-shirt and jeans in your closet? I had to dig way in the back! And don’t get me started on the shoes! There was like an avalanche, and they were all heels! These were the only two I could find hat weren’t, and they didn’t even match!”

“That’s exactly what we need to talk about. I wear heels, skirts, dresses! It’s my thing! That means until we swap back, you need to start wearing those things.”

“Oh, hell no!”

“Oh, hell yes! Or trust me, I will make this a whole lot worse for you!”

“And I hope this body swapping curse teaches you...wait, why are you smiling,” Angela asked confused after using a magic spell to swap bodies with the guy who had been ogling her as she passed by him.

“Because this a dream come true,” Marvin responded, “I wasn’t staring at you because I wanted to ask you out or get you into bed, I was staring because I wanted to BE you. And now somehow you made that happen. You have no idea how it feels to be like you’re the wrong gender, and then somehow like magic it’s solved. Thank you! Thank you so much!”

Angela didn’t quite know how to respond. She was hoping to teach a creep a lesson by making him experience what it was like to be a woman for a bit, but this creep turned out to actually be grateful. She wanted to knock that grin off her own face and try to explain the many challenges of being a woman, but some reason, she also didn’t want to burst his bubble so readily...
