Jenny turned away. She still couldn’t believe what had happened. Her friends had warned her not to sleep with Gavin; they told her about the rumors he was into weird stuff. But she never expected that weird stuff to include body swapping. She pressed him on some ground rules about what they could do or couldn’t do in each other’s bodies, but he didn’t care. He claimed her body was his now, and he was going to do whatever he wanted. She didn’t want to watch as he was the one now in control of her body. It felt too weird. Sure, Gavin had been cute, but she never wanted anything like this. This was going to be a problem!

It had been an error, a simple miscalculation when activating his invention, but as a result, Milton had spent the past month waking up each day in a different body. In the first week, he calculated a way to stop the swapping at any time, but no matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t seem to increase the probability of getting back into his own body. By the two week mark, he realized he’d have to settle for a body that was merely suitable enough -- this, however, turned out to be quite difficult.

One day he woke up as a baby, the next an old man, and one day an adult film star. He was starting to think he’d be swapping forever. And one day he woke up the body of a woman around his same age. He dismissed it at first, he was pretty sure he didn’t want to be stuck as a woman for the rest of his life. But as the day went on, he realized it might not be so bad. She had mostly plain clothes, her proportions weren’t outlandish like a few bodies he had in the past, she seemed genuinely average. There was a comfort in average.

On the street, he looked down at his unremarkable outfit and decided this was it. This was the body he was going to keep. He only needed a few small parts to construct what he needed, then this would be who he was forever...

The Solution to All of Life's Problems

When Aaron passed out and he awoke to not only find himself in a strange house but also in an unfamiliar body, he thought he was dreaming. As time passed, it felt less and less like a dream. When he turned on the TV and saw all sorts of news reports about some sort of body swapping event, he realized he wasn’t dreaming. He was a woman now, and he just had to deal with that. Of course, he decided quickly that the best way to deal with that was to go into this woman’s kitchen and open up a bottle of wine. It didn’t solve this problem, but it certainly didn’t make it any worse!

Around the World (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.

Getting home turned out to be not so easy for Jason. He had to prove he really was to not only his home country, but also to the country where he ended up to a bunch of people who didn’t speak the same language as him. The process took time, he needed to figure out where the woman he now was lived at so that he wasn’t homeless while everything was processed. It took nearly a year before he got the call.

Finally getting home again felt great. He loved reconnecting with all his (now also swapped) friends. There were also things that felt weird. Food tasted different -- almost weird. He wasn’t sure if this was his new body’s differing taste buds, or if he just got used to the flavors overseas in the past year. He found himself dropping foreign words into his conversations. He had never learned the language, but he did pick up a few things -- mostly swears. He would often daydream about going back...

Around the World

When the Great Shift happened, most people swapped bodies with someone within a few feet of them. Over 99% of people swapped with someone within a mile radius. Every now and again, someone swapped bodies with someone a considerable distance away. 

Jason, for instance, found himself halfway across the globe in a new body as a result of the Great Shift. While most people were challenged by the fact that they found themselves in a new body, Jason had the added complication of trying to understand what was going on with no one around being able to explain in a language he knew that the same thing was happening to them. He felt lost and confused, and he knew he had nowhere to turn for help.

His only saving grace seemed to be due to the fact that he had swapped into a body located near a major tourist attraction, and he eventually found someone who could speak the same language.

Holler (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
It all slowly cam back to him. Jake remembered the job he had at the PR firm, and the cupcakes he needed to pick up for the girls in the office. He remembered his name was actually Aida now, which is what his mom would’ve named him if he had been born a girl.

Luckily, it seemed he wasn’t forgetting anything about being Jake or who he had been. Instead, he was like all this new information was just building on top of everything he knew about himself.

Sure, now he knew how to style a client, but he still remembered everything about miter joints. He could rehash all the latest celebrity gossip and the cheat codes of his favorite video games. He knew how to deal with a period while remembering peeing standing up.

He was very worried that old knowledge would fade, but it never seemed to. In fact, there was a sort of curse to that, because he still couldn’t shake how bad he felt for catcalling that woman the morning his transformed. He couldn’t shake it no matter how hard he tried.

Holler (Part 1)

Jake had always been a little uncomfortable when the guys at the construction site hollered at a passing woman. But after a few weeks, they all started making fun of him for not joining in. And so, against his better judgement, the next time he saw an attractive woman pass, he decided to lead the charge. The other guys cheered him on. Jake immediately felt bad as the woman seemed to frown and increased the speed in her step. It started with a bad feeling in the put of his stomach. It grew from there. After about an hour, he was getting tingles and he felt parts of his body go numb. 

A little more time passed and things got really weird. Jake could tell the hair on his head was now rapidly growing out. He swore his beard was thinning too. His arms and legs felt more slender.

By lunchtime, the changes were undeniable. He had become a female version of himself. And once lunch was over, even his clothes had changed to a fashionable version of what he had been wearing. His boots were now heels, his overalls now a cute leather outfit.

He walked back to the construction site, but instead of being welcome, he was greeted to the same sorts of hoots and hollers that women got when passing by. Jake realized this was no longer where he worked, but much like his physical changes, the mental affects of his transformation were happening slowly.
