Not amused (Part 3)

After screaming with the ride operators and amusement park staff some more, Joshua took a bit of information from the woman he swapped bodies with, whose name was Nadine Kim. They agreed to meet the next morning for coffee to discuss what to do next. Spending the night in a woman's body was a strange experience. Joshua found it hard to sleep. The next morning was worse. He felt awkward seeing Nadine's naked body while showering, and he struggled to put on a bra. He arrived a little late to the coffee shop where Nadine was already researching on the computer.

"The amusement park has never lost a lawsuit." She told him.

Joshua grumbled.

"It's not all bad news." She continued, "There are a slew of sites dedicated to body swapping. I've read a few things from people who claim to have swapped bodies after reading stories on this one site, Great Shift Captions, and another that even offers magic spells to switch with someone. I mean, we both probably would've laughed at this stuff before as being bogus, but now that we both know body swapping is totally real, don't we have to at least try as much as we can to switch back?"

"I'm just hoping we CAN switch back! I'm not sure how many days I can stand getting ready in a woman's body."

"Well, if we don't, you're going to have to get used to it."

Nine (Part 1)

Being a genius level engineer had its advantages. The first was the genius grant, which provided a huge amount of money to pursue ideas. The second was to team with other geniuses to pool resources and make those dreams a reality. The group of nine men had all thought up a similar idea, a transformation device. With their collective intelligence and generous corporate financing, creating such a device was no problem. The men were all eager to test to device, each with a thought in their head about the type of person they wanted to be transformed into. When the device was activated, it read their thoughts and changed their bodies. Interestingly enough, they each had a similar thought in their heads. They all wanted to be transformed into women, Asian women, between the ages of 18 and 29. Sure, there were slight differences in appearance, hair color, and so on, but it was uncanny how much these men truly had in common.

Bill had been close to seven feet tall before the Great Shift. He got an entirely new perspective on life when the Shift swapped him into a woman's body that was just shy of five feet. Instead of looking downwards at people, he now had to look up. It was odd needing a step ladder to reach the high shelves in his own home. Being so dramatically different in height was one thing. On top of that, he also needed to get used to having an entirely new gender.

The two stood silent and stared at each other for quite a few minutes. Maybe there was a bit of a delayed hope that the wish might somehow be granted or maybe they just didn't didn't know what to say. It was the genie (in William's body) who finally spoke up first with an interesting thought.

"I wish that I knew why we swapped bodies." She said.

"Yes, Master." William said on instinct. His jaw dropped. "Why did I just say that!?"

"Because you have to." The genie replied. She took a deep breath. "Allow me to explain. There was this worldwide incident caused by...Well, that part is a long story. But it has happened to just about everyone. People are calling it the Great Shift. Almost everyone swapped bodies...including us. But my powers stayed with you. You're the genie; you can grant wishes. And I'm your Master!"

Gwendolyn was furious. She stormed into the room and yelled at Ryan with fury. Ryan took it in stride. He simply shrugged. He didn't know why he had swapped bodies with her, but he wasn't going to get too upset about it. His calm demeanor made her more angry. However, no matter how upset she got, Ryan didn't respond in kind. He just took it cool as a cucumber.

As soon as the ride stopped, Joshua threw off the goggles and helmet. He even tossed the woman's coat. He got a hold of his anger for a moment and put on a smile to address the ride operators.

"I think there's something wrong with that ride!" Joshua said, "It switched our bodies!"

The lead operator shrugged, "That's what it's advertised to do. I've never tried it myself."

"Are you kidding me? How is that legal? How is that even possible!?"

He shrugged again, "You signed a waiver when you came into the park."

"I demand you let us back on again this instant to switch back!"

"There's still an hour long line you'd have to wait through, and the park closes in about 30 minutes. Plus, even if I let you cut, the ride doesn't switch people back. You both are stuck like that for good."

"What!? We're stuck like this?" The woman in Joshua's body suddenly interjected, "I thought it was only temporary!"

Timothy didn't know what he was going to tell his sister. He had looked through all of the books several times now, and there didn't seem to be any way to switch back. Her threats had been pretty harsh, but what could she possibly do? After all, he was the one in her body now. To punish him would be to punish her, right? He shrugged. He really didn't mind being in his sister's body. He hoped she would learn to enjoy being in his.

William made another quick wish for money. Lots of money. After the genie granted the wish there was a weird flash. It seemed odd since his previous wish didn't involve any sort of magical flash; it had just happened with little to no fanfare. Then he realized he was looking at the room from the opposite perspective. His view had changed, and he could no longer see the genie. He could only see...himself!? He looked down to find that he was now in the scantily clad body of the genie.

"Genie!" He said forcefully, "I wish to know why we suddenly switched bodies!"

"Yes, Master!" She replied. However, nothing seemed to happen.

Or else (Part 1)

These old books that Timothy found in the attack had gotten him into this mess; he was sure that if he kept reading they could get him out of it as well. The first book he had read had a strange magical spell that caused him to swap bodies with his sister, Alana. She was pretty upset about the whole thing. She told him he had 24 hours to find a way back...or else. He had been scanning the books ever since.

Tyler looked down at the caller ID on his phone. It was Peggy...again. She still blamed him for the swap, despite the fact that he had nothing to do with the accident that forced his mind into her body. Peggy hated being in Tyler's body, and she was very vocal about her misery. She talked his ear off for an hour. Tyler just rolled his eyes. He figured he'd let her get it all out. The problem, of course, is that she always seemed to have more inside of her.

Not amused (Part 1)

Joshua was intrigued by one ride at the amusement park. He hadn't heard much about it, but the line was quite long. He was sure that with a line like that, "The Switcher" must be a great ride. It took several hours for him to get to the front. The cars of the ride only had two seats, and he ended up sharing his with an Asian woman wearing a puffy pink coat. After being strapped in and even given helmets and goggles, the two were off in their car. It felt like one of the most intense roller coasters ever. Joshua even found himself screaming. The car began to whip around at very intense speeds and in such a way that Joshua found that his soul was literally thrown from his own body. When the ride finally settled down a little, his soul ended up settling inside the body of the Asian woman he shared the car with. "The Switcher" had swapped the bodies of him and the woman. He screamed again, but this time for very different reasons.

From strange to stranger (Part 1)

William had a long, rough day at work. He had been so busy that he hadn't even had time to eat. When his day was finally over, he reached into the company fridge, grabbed his brown bag, and went home. However, when he went in to eat his lunch back at his apartment, he opened up the sack to find he had grabbed someone else's bag. There was no food inside, just some weird reusable metal container. He figured he could apologize to whoever's bag he had taken by cleaning the container. As he rubbed the outside, the strangest thing happened, smoke billowed from the container, and soon a woman appeared from out of the smoke! William was in shock!

The woman spoke first, "What is your wish, Master?"

"Excuse me?" William asked.

"I am a genie, and you are my master!"

"No way! Genies are real! I must be hallucinating from hunger. I wish I wasn't so hungry!"

The woman wiggled her nose, and sure enough, William was full.

Mike sighed, "Okay, I get it! I'm sorry! I've been stressed out at work lately; I never meant to stop helping out around the house, and I never meant to suggest that what you do all day is easier than what I do. But you've got to switch our bodies back, Marisa! I've got a huge meeting tomorrow. If you go in my place, you're going to get me fired!"

Looking for a little sympathy

Todd was having a hard time adjusting to his new femininity after the Great Shift swapped him into a woman's body. However, it seemed few were sympathetic to his difficulties. He knew there were others in the world who had their gender shifted, but he seemed to be the only one who he knew that it happened to. His friends simply told him to get over it. He had expected his sisters to help him out, but they merely laughed at him. They told him it was about time he had to go through what they had been experiencing for years.

After a few more months, Julian couldn't ever dream of going back to his old body. He had not only learned to adjust to having Veronica's body; he was learning to love it. However, as he worked out in the gym one day, he noticed the man in the suit again, the one who had offered to switch him back to his own body. However, this time the man hadn't approached him, the man was talking on the other side of the gym with Veronica in his body. What if Veronica wanted to swap back? How could he explain that he didn't want to?

The summer came to a close, and Jose was ready to return. He hoped enough time had passed. If it hadn't, he was sure he'd hear from Emily very soon. Instead, one of Emily's friends saw him. She seemed releaved. No one had heard from the real Emily for a month, so seeing what she thought was the real Emily was a joyous moment. Jose knew exactly what happened. He had seen some of the finer details of the spell. If he stayed in a copy of Emily's body, Emily would slowly turn into a copy of him. It would affect her mind as well; she'd start to think she really was him. At times, he wanted to tell Emily's friends his secret; he felt so close to them now. But he always held his mouth. He couldn't reveal that secret. Ever.

Weight for it

Jason didn't understand why Lea was doing this to him. He took her at her word when she said the initial body swap was an accident, and he believed her when she said they'd be able to switch back in a week. But then there were all sorts of conditions. She told him not to gain a single pound; if he did, she'd refuse to switch back. As a result, Jason had been maintaining a strick workout routine while in Lea's body. Of course, what he didn't consider was that muscle actually weighs more than fat. It may not look like he was gaining any weight, but when the week ended, Lea would be sure to put him on a scale.

Too soon

Uh-oh! Kevin looked at himself in the bathroom mirror. He had transformed back to his old self too soon. The spell wasn't supposed to wear off until midnight; it was only 9PM. He was beginning to panic. Earlier in the evening he had cast the spell to transform himself into a woman so he could seduce John and obtain blackmail material for John's wife in upcoming divorce proceedings. It had gone so well that they were soon in a hotel room alone together. Kevin had excused himself to the bathroom to slip into something "more comfortable," but as he finished stripping down to a bra and panties, the transformation spell suddenly wore off. Kevin was stuck without a way out; he had no idea what he was going to do.

The red dress was Ryan's first clothing purchase after the Great Shift. He had been a little hesitant to buy it, but he figured he needed to start getting used to purchasing women's clothes and it looked good enough when he tried it on in the store. However, when he tried it on back at home, he couldn't help but think he looked so much fatter than he had in the mirrors at the store. He knew his new body wasn't fat, but it was hard not to think of it as such. He tried to tell himself it was an illusion. The feeling was especially weird considering how much bigger his male body had been. But he had developed an unrealistic expectation of the female body over the years, and now that he was one he just couldn't shake that preconception.

What's the harm?

After a strange experiment swapped Tara and Michael bodies, she advised him to lay low until they could find a way to switch back. Michael was never one to heed warnings, and ended up going out a little more often than he should. In fact, even when he was going to some place as mundane as the grocery store he decided to make Tara's body look as good and noticeable as possible. He often wore a short dress and did up his makeup. He touched it up in the store as he looked at himself, admiring how good he looked. Of course, he wasn't the only one who saw how good he looked. A man in the dairy aisle saw him and approached him. Michael couldn't believe it; he was getting hit on! Soon he agreed to dinner. What harm could one date do?

Two people

Joel was becoming quite impatient. He put his hands on his hips and asked again, "If there's something in that book that caused us to switch bodies, then there has to be something in there that will cause us to swap back, doesn't there?"

"I tried! I looked!" Kelly said while still frantically searching the pages, "There doesn't seem to be any sort of reversal."

"Did you try just reading the original spell again? It swapped our bodies once; maybe it will do so again!"

"I tried that several times! It seems like a one shot deal. I think once two people swapped, they can never swap again!"

A pass (Part 2)

After the tests were over, Jose asked Emily for a favor. He wanted to stay as a copy of her for the summer. He promised he'd be miles away, so that there would be no risk of seeing them both in the same place. Emily shrugged and agreed. She couldn't imagine why Jose wouldn't want to go back to being himself. She knew her body was awesome, but were guys into being girls? That seemed odd to her. Jose, of course, was ecstatic. Not only would he be spending the summer in Emily's body but if all went according to plan, his life was about to become a lot better.
