Still Playing Santa

Barney had been dressing up as Santa for the local kids for many years. Unfortunately, thanks to the Great Shift earlier this year, Barney now had a new body, and he wasn’t sure he could convince anyone that he was Santa now. After all, instead of his older, portly body, he was now young, skinny, and female. Nevertheless, he had his Santa suit refitted, and put it on, ready to entertain.

It turns out the kids didn’t really care. However, now that many of the kids were in the bodies of adults, having them sit on his lap was often out of the question. Still, he realized he had to make an exception from time to time. One toung kid, now in the body of a rather burly man, burst out in tears when Barney asked him not to sit on his lap. He eventually relented. It was so painful, and he was sure his body would break. But he managed to go through the routine, and it opened the floodgate. Now ALL the kids in adult bodies wanted to do the same. It was going to be a long day.

Present

On Christmas Eve just before going to bed, Miles saw a rare shooting star out his window. He made the wish he always made, to be a woman. He knew it was silly, and he had come to accept it would never come true. Imagine his surprise when he woke up the next morning on an unfamilar couch, and sure enough, his wish had come true. He assessed his body. It looked pretty good; maybe about ten years older than he had been, but he couldn’t complain in the slighest! He looked at the presens under th tree for Maddie and Alyssa, he wondered which one he was!

He mood turned a little sour when two young girls calling him “mom.” A man, who he guessed was this woman’s husband, soon followed. While he was excited to be a woman, he wasn’t sure he wanted to be tied down to a family, at least not yet -- particularly with a man he had never chosen nor met! He feigned excitement but was secretly plotting an escape plan in his head.

Demonic

I woke up in the middle of the night with my room lit in an odd red tint. A beautiful woman with horns stood above my bed.

Before I could ask, she spoke, “Do not fear me, human. I am only here to grant you a wish.”

“Okay, but looking like that...there’s gotta be a catch, right?” I asked.

“Clever,” she laughed, “Oh, I’m almost completely guaranteed to twist whatever you say. I am a demon, as you can plainly see. But you also can’t refuse to wish.”

“And you can do anything as a demon?”

“Pretty much. As long as it is wished. Thre are some rules, but not many.”

“I guess,then...”I thought for a moment, “I wish I had your powers, but without any restrictions and without any negative stuff.”

She smiled. I could tell she was thinking of a way to twist my wish. It didn’t take her long. In an instant, I was now the one standing over the bed looking down at my own body.

“You swapped our bodies!” I shouted, “You made me a demon!”

“Being a demon is the only way to access demonic powers.”

“And I’m you! I’m a woman!”

“Now, there’s nothing negative about being a woman, is there?”

A Difficult Apology

I was at the mall with my girlfriend as she tried on dresses, and she began complaining about how she needed a size up. I made some comment about how Asians like her are never fat, and told her she must be doing something wrong. The minute I saw her face, I knew how badly I screwed up.

In the next instant, I found myself in a different part of the mall. I should’ve probably mentioned my girlfriend is a bit of a witch and she used her magic to swap me into someone else’s body. Clearly in response to my comments, I was now in the body of an Asian woman who was clearly on the heavier side. It wasn’t the first time I had screwed up, and I was sure a swift apology would get her to use her magic to turn me back to normal. I just needed to get to her.

I tried to get to the store where we had been, but she had already left. I had to go search from store to store. All the while, I had to hear people make comments on my weight (from side whispers to rather rude shouts) and a few racist taunts. I was sure that was part of her spell, but it certainly hurt. After some time, I realized she had probably left the mall, and I’d have to go meet her back at home. I groaned as I realized that meant going cross town on the bus looking like this...ugh, what a day!

The Yoga Class (Part 1)

Ming had joined the early morning outdoor yoga class to help support her friend Keysha. Keysha had been trying to lose weight and tried all sorts of workouts to do so. Ming had been nothing but encouraging, even when Keysha was quite down on herself.

They had been to a dozen or so classes so far, with little to no results for Keysha. She was feeling quite defeatist, but Ming told her it took time. So just like every Wednesday for the past few months, they met outside for some yoga.

About halfway through, a flash of light overcame the field where the class took place. In an instant, every member of the class found themself in the body of a different member of the class.

Ming tried to keep a calm appearance. She could feel the added weight on her body, the fat moving in ways she had never felt before. She was in Keysa’s body, and she was honestly freaking out about it. But the last thing she wanted to do was let Keysha know how disgusted she felt, so she put on the bravest face she could...

Mandatory Happy Hour

It had been a terrible day at work. Nearly everyone in the entire building ended up swapping bodies with someone else in the building due to an experiment gone wrong. Roland found himself in the body of Julie Wong, a woman in the sales department who often gave people like him in creative a hard time. Now that he had her body until the company found a way to fix this, he was sure her nagging would only get worse.

He wanted nothing more than to go home and hide, but HR decided the best way to “boost morale” was to implement a mandatory happy hour after work. Roland was only on his second drink when his vision started to blur and things felt dreamy. He was used to drinking a lot more, but he supposed Julie didn’t drink much at all, if it was affecting him this much. He began to vocally complain aloud to another person from work, who (as it turned out) was actually Julie in the body she had been swapped into. Somehow, after another drink in and several more inhibitions gone, Roland ended up making out with Julie.

Who Is With Me?

In the ancient past before nations existed, tribes roamed the land, often fighting with each other. The latest battle for Berthun’s tribe was brutal. He was sure he was one of the few who survived, and likely the only one to escape. When he arrived back at his village, he was met with skeptiism and confusion.

“I report bad news,” He announced as people began to gather, “I may not appear it, but I am Berthun. The enemy used some sort of magic. We all became women almost instantly. I quickly realized this body was just as strong, just as quick, and just as able as my male one had been. This was not a realization many of my fellow warrior were able to come to. I tried to explain we could still succeed, but the pantic of being a new gender in the midst of battle was too great. Many were killed; many more were captured. I suspect they will arrive here in three days time. Man or woman, it does not matter; we all defend our home. With their magic, man or woman probably doesn’t matter anyway. But we can prepare. If we do not let their magic confuse or distract us, we are sure to defeat them. Who is with me?”
