Lifesaving

As Alyssa and Max stood and listened, the doctor nervously explained why Max now appeared to be Alyssa’s exact twin.

As Alyssa and Max stood and listened, the doctor nervously explained why Max now appeared to be Alyssa’s exact twin.

“Well, you see when you both arrived after the car accident,” The doctor began, “Max was in rough shape. We were experimenting with a unique gene technique that would surely save his life. Alyssa was simply the obvious donor patient. What we didn’t expect was the treatment overriding your DNA, Max, with yours, Alyssa. Genetically, you two are now completely identical. Of course, Max still has his own thoughts, memories, and experiences. He’s still Max, but his outward appearance. Keep in mind, the alternative was Max’s death! And, of course, we will compensate you appropriately!”

Despite the weirdness of the situation, both Max and Alyssa realized it could have been worse, and they were quite interested in how the hospital planned to compensate them for being the subject of an unethical experiment!

Stupid Ballet

Anthony’s wife had pressured him to come to a ballet performance. She insisted he needed some culture. He couldn’t believe how long and boring it was. Finally, after more than two hours, it seemed to be coming to a close. As the lead dancer leapt into the air, she came crashing down with a flash of light, and it was almost like Anthony could actually feel it. He soon realized that he actually did feel it. He was now on the stage in front of the large crowd with a spotlight on him. He could see the scared look in the faces of the people in the front rows, and he was nervous himself. He hadn’t just found himself on the stage; he was now inside the body of the lead dancer! He was wearing tights, and ballet slippers, and a damned tutu -- not the mention the fact he was now a woman! He cursed his luck. None of this would have happened to him if his wife hadn’t forced him to go to the stupid ballet!

Unremarkable (Part 2)

View Unremarkable (Part 1) here.

Neil looked over to the bench where he had tried to swap the couple sitting there. “I don’t think it worked,” He said to Melissa, “They don’t look swapped to me.”

“Shush!” Melissa whispered, “I think they’re trying not to make a scene, but I need to listen.”

Neil couldn’t hear anything the couple was saying, and he was feeling a little lightheaded. He wondered if using his power was just a bit tiring. Melissa seemed to be smiling.

“It worked!” She said quietly, “They are totally in each other’s bodies.”

The couple stood up, and it was a little clearer. The man’s body stood and began walking in a feminine manner while the woman’s body seemed to be moving much more like a guy would.

“I think they’re leaving. Should we swap them back before they do, so they’re not stuck if I can’t find them again?” Neil asked.

“And spoil their fun?” Melissa laughed, “I overheard them. They have a plan to truly experience their new bodies, and they’re going back to his room to do that! But we can pick another pair to experiment further or for something more obvious?

For Display Only

Six months ago, I had found myself locked in a department store after hours. I don’t know why, but I felt compelled to reach out and touch one of the mannequins. To my surprise, the mannequin came to life! The woman (who had just been a freeking mannequin a minute ago) thanked me and then quickly apologized before running off.

I tried to chase her, but I soon found my feet stuck in place. My skin became an alabaster shade of white. Gaps formed at my joints. My entire body was becoming fiberglass or plastic and the form was a feminine one, much like the one I had touched. When it finally reached my head, I was briefly in a living hell of being completely paralyzed before even my brain was plasticized into inanimate oblivion.

It felt like a mere moment later, but with the sun now coming up, it was clear several hours had passed as the process went in reverse shortly before the store was set to open. Except instead of reverting to my own body, I became a human form of the mannequin I had become -- a gorgeous woman with an envious body fit for showcasing fashion. On top of all that, a clerk had apparently put me in a wedding dress overnight. It was all pretty embarrassing for a guy like me!

Over the next few days, I discovered I had taken on a curse. At night, generally right before stores closed, I would turn into a mannequin. I’d transform into a woman shortly before they opened. It didn’t matter if a body part was removed from the mannequin; I’d always wake up with no missing parts to my human body. It was best to let the transformation happen in a store; I was on the street once and woke up naked and in the trash. I don’t know what triggered me taking up the curse from the woman who had it before me, and I’m not sure how, when, or if anyone will ever take it from me!

The Pink Dragon (Part 1)

When the princess was captured by a dargon, the king looked to his bravest knights to save her. A few had stepped forward early on, but they never came back. The task would seem to be doomed, and the rumors of the dragon’s chaotic magic was widespread.

Sir Yorick finally stepped up to the task. He only held the knight title due to heredity. As the fifth son of a Lord, he was slated to inherit very little. His ask if he succeeded? To marry the princess. The king was hesitant but Yorick’s small frame seemed no match for the dragon anyway, so he ultimately agreed.

Yorick soon arrived outside the cave and taunted the dragon out. The dragon glowed a brilliant pink as it activated its magic. The rumors had been completely true, and the dragon’s body swapping magic suddenly placed him chained up deep within the cave and inside the princess’s body!

This was actually part of Yorick’s plan, as he was an expert lockpicker and was able to free himself. However, it was not part of his plan to see his body burnt to a crisp by the dragon’s fiery breath. He quickly assessed his options and decided to elude the dragon and run back to the kingdom as quickly as possible. Considering he had swapped into the body of the princess, it was fairly easy to assume her identity.

Esc! Cancel! Undo!

“Esc! Cancel! Undo!” Garrett mumbled under his breath after he accidentally clicked on an advertisement. He had been gaining weight since turning 40, and the ad was appealing.

It had read, “Get a fit body in 40 seconds.” It technically wasn’t lying as a beam shot out of Garrett’s computer to transform him. He was now certainly fit...but he was also a woman! He hadn’t even put in a credit card or agreed to a terms of service. It had just done it!

Now he was trying to undo it. If he couldn’t, he had no idea what he was going to tell his wife when she got home.

Buying Immortality

Alex walked around the displays seeing the various heads being grown in glass jars. He stopped at one that caught his attention. It was a woman; he hadn’t expected to be drawn to a woman.

“I want this one,” He said flatly.

“Very well,” The dealer replied, “We will transfer the $500 million from your account to begin prepping the body. The other half is due once your thoughts and memories are transfered into it.”

“One question though. Wouldn’t it make more sense to grow humans naturally, as fetuses first instead of growing the heads first without the rest of the body?”

“Well, Sir, it is obvious we deal with wealthy clients like yourself. You are spending a billion dollars to have a new body, eventually achieving immortality if you can continue to afford it. But as you can imagine, for that price tag, immortality is not enough. People want to know what they are going to look like. I think this young woman’s appearance might’ve even had an influence on your decision making.”

“I suppose you’re right. I wasn’t planning on becoming a woman, but she certainly is beautiful. I just couldn’t resist. I suppose it will be an interesting experience.”
