Dee Wright sighed as he finished tidying the desk. Hed finished with dusting, mopping, organizing, and not a single customer had come in for some time. He cracked his neck gently and settled into his chair. The industrial fan in the corner oscillated a few times. He rapped his fingers on the wood of the table. Just three hours left in his shift.
Despite the occasional boredom, he enjoyed working in the back. It was like his own little world. It was much better than being out there somewhere in the rest of store. He liked the owner but he knew she definitely had some quirks. Like the fact she opened a store which sold gender-bending products.
It was a dangerous place if one wished to remain the same gender. Despite those pitfalls, Dee had managed, in sixteen months, never to be affected by a single one of the store products. A record he held alone among the staff. Most employees were turned within a month at most.
The air from the fan brushed at his cap with the store l

The wicked cackle from Katsumi made me reconsider for a moment. A door slid open, and Katsumi quickly covered her mouth. Her tension released when she realized it was just Miki with a container full of colorful items, a towel over her shoulder, and a toothbrush in her mouth.
Her gaze lingered on Katsumi before she walked into the bath area and closed the door behind her. Katsumi let her tension go and looked over at us. “Anyway. I’m glad you all agreed. Now my plan can go forward. As soon as your feminine materials are ready to wear. ‘Till then, I have a few things to prepare. Don’t go anywhere, or I will physically hunt you down and super glue you to every girlish thing I have for all eternity.”
This was becoming like revolving doors. No sooner did Katsumi exit, her weighty footfalls sounding on each step (how, I wondered, could she ever expect to sneak up on anyone when sh
Mecchen House - Chapter 3Chapter 3 Joining Mecchen HouseMecchen House - Chapter 3 in Fantasy More Like This
It was a huge hypothetical to consider. What if we made it back home and wed been missing for all those months? At the very least, our rent wouldve gone unpaid. Surely our families would have given us up for dead. I could just imagine it now. Trio of young men last seen going for a walk.
Katsumi leaned over to whisper in Sumis ear. Sumi stood like a marble statue, then curled at Katsumi like a tiger, struck, You wouldnt dare!
Ill do whatever I must. Its your choice as to which. She looked rather solemn. Did having us here really bother her that much? I had to put the question to her.
Jamie edged back as Katsumi targeted me with her eyes in response. Her sour look could kill a flower.
Katsumi folded her arms and said, Imagine youre trapped in an old building. All the openings are barred. Theres no way out of this place. Then you hear echoing gigg
Complaints - Part 3Dee picked up the service phone. Florani Tools number was written right below the keypad. He entered the number in quickly. The customer carefully sat with her knees together, blushed a little, and looked over at him hopefully.Complaints - Part 3 in Science Fiction More Like This
Florani had a Byzantine automated phone system but Dee had plenty of experience navigating it and was soon to a human operator.
The operator gave a surprised, Hm? Oh is this Dee?
Dee flipped his hair back and smiled, Who else?
The operators voice was soft but rough, like it rose up then sliced through the air like a knife. I was hoping you would call. How have you been?
Dee let his smile go. I have a customer who had unintended consequences with an item.
The operator laughed. The good kind or the bad kind?
The kind I often call you about.
Dee could hear shoes scuffing across the floor. He glanced down the hall.
Out shuffled a tall, blond woman. Her hair was back in a scrunch
Mecchen House - Chapter 4Chapter 4 – Room Hunting at Mecchen HouseMecchen House - Chapter 4 in Fantasy More Like This
To say that Katsumi was a bit upset by the final vote of five to four to let us stay is about the biggest understatement I can imagine. She flew around like a caged feline and hissed to the girls.
“I CANNOT believe this! This should’ve been UNANIMOUS! Fine, you want it that way. But I’ll have no part in moving them in and no part in any of them, period. I’ll only plot the demise of their manhood in one fell swoop. Don’t think I’m just bluffing. If you, all three of you, are staying, then all three of you will be wearing skirts before you know it. YOU’VE BEEN WARNED!” Her finger darted between us, and she trampled across the floor with her purse over a shoulder, put her phone to her ear, and continued up the steps.
Ami let out a long, slow breath.
“She’s actually a rather nice person. But we are always in conflict about stuff like this. She was really rou
The Zappy Girl - TGThe Zappy Girl - TGThe Zappy Girl - TG in Short Stories More Like This
Teresa knew what she wanted since her first waking thought. No books about teachers could move her desire, nor friends talking princesses.
She wanted to be a girl who made girls.
Not from paper or cloth. She wanted to make them from all the boys she saw. She even imagined her great-grandfather as a matronly beauty. The feeling was so very natural to her. Every time, she felt pure joy.
Her parents sighed and nudged her away from her hobby but tolerated it for how happily she spoke of it. Any dolls she was bought were former adventurers put into new roles. She sketched her family with all girls.
When it came to school, she refused to mask her feelings. No matter if it meant teasing and loneliness, she knew her place as she strode across the campus, catching all the new girls with her mental beam of change.
With the years, she was resigned to begrudging eccentricity with her plots (trying to infect girl-making cooties in the boy's restroom and special cupcakes w
Mecchen House - Chapter 6Chapter 6 – Morning at Mecchen HouseMecchen House - Chapter 6 in Fantasy More Like This
I didn’t wake with the expectation that the previous evening was all a dream. One look at the ceiling swiftly killed any chance of that.
I didn’t wake feeling renewed and refreshed. More like sweaty and stiff, on my head especially. Katsumi’s wig didn’t breathe.
I also didn’t wake up alone. Fortunately, it was just Ms. Ishida with a bundle of clothes in her arms. Some of them looked like mine. I sat up.
She flashed me a grin like a caught thief. “Sorry to wake you. Pleasant morning to you.” I assured her I woke up on my own, hoarsely returned the greeting, and asked her what time it was.
“Six in the morning, or pretty close to it.” Earlier than I was used to. Surprising the sun was even up at this hour.
“Where are my… roommates?”
She tucked the clothes into a bag. “Nathan… I think he’s with Miki right now. And your other roomma

After shaking off my confusion, I paused at the last step on my way back to the first floor. That delicious chestnut aroma enveloped me. I really was getting hungry. I planned to have something microwaveable after I finished my coding, but the udon which Ms. Ishida was warming up sounded a lot better. Of course, it was probably gonna be microwaved as well.
I peeked at the room I thought of as the living room. Katsumi had finished her job on Nathan’s hair and was blowing curling, white steam off her curry rice. Her mouth made a perfect, pink circle. Nathan was bright red with a sextet of bows in his hair in too-short but still cute braids. They looked utterly ridiculous. I gave Nathan a sympathetic smile.
Katsumi glared over at me. “Ms. Ishida says your food is ready. If you stay any longer after eating then all three of you will face my full fury. You’ll wish you merely faced death.” Katsumi
Mecchen House - Chapter 7Chapter 7 – Questions with Nana from Mecchen HouseMecchen House - Chapter 7 in Fantasy More Like This
The wind seemed to push us forth along our way. It was calm, but vibrant. The trees nearby, with their triangles of green, barely moved under its influence. Jamie led, and I was in the middle. Nathan and Nana took up the rear.
My wallet and keys slid around as I walked on the pavement. I stopped a moment to stuff them both in the bag Ms. Ishida had given me. The sun shone bright in the east like the purest white paint. I shielded my eyes.
No one said much along the way. With Nana, that wasn’t much of a surprise, but Nathan and Jamie both looked subdued. I figured that was my fault.
I thought I saw Mami’s bright hair on someone in the distance. They wore the same uniform as the other girls. The girl carried herself like Mami as well. But they were going one way, and we were going the other. I gave them one last look before we turned at the gas station.
Nana finally broke the silence when we came to the cr
Mecchen House - Chapter 1Chapter 1 – Arrival at Mecchen HouseMecchen House - Chapter 1 in Fantasy More Like This
I pulled Jamie out from under Nathan. He didn’t fight… Much. The color in his face was only now beginning to return.
“My arm hurts…” was all Jamie could manage in a monotone.
The pieces started to come together for him.
“You only hurt if you’re awake…”
One plus one would then equal…
“I was gonna get in front of a bus. I would’ve died…”
I didn’t know if Jamie’s life was passing in front of his eyes, but I knew that he would be passing out soon enough again if I didn’t intervene.
“Jamie, I know this is tough for you. I barely understand it myself. But we need you with us. We need you now.” Barely understanding was a fair overstatement. I could feel myself trembling. As long as I’d known Jamie, he’d always been crawling into his own little caves and hid, from conflict, from pain, with the easiest way out. I c
Sex Talks - TGJessica flinched when the door slammed open, hastily tugging the threads of her spell back in place. The yellow glow surrounding the ball flashed erratically for a moment, then gently calmed as she plucked against the threads, gently easing the discord back into harmony.Sex Talks - TG in Short Stories More Like This
"I wanna talk," muttered Geoff; He sounded like he had been drinking. He was usually too afraid of her spells when he hadn't been.
She flashed him a grin anyway, sighing at the effect he always had on her, before giving him a stern look to offset it. "After I finish my spells. Remember last time when the house nearly blew up?"
"It's another transformation spell, isn't it?" he muttered, glaring at it some more. The threads reacted, stirring until she soothed them back into place with a reproachful look at her husband. "It's always a transformation spell, these days. Every night you wanna turn me into something else and expect me to act like it's no big deal."
"And every night you get better at it than the night before,"
Teacher's Pet TG: with a GenieThe chair groaned as Jean laid back with it, bringing an appreciative grunt from the girl as she allowed her back to dissolve into blissful nothingness. She sighed, relishing the lack of stiffness and pain for a moment, before reluctantly condensing the pink smoke once more into flesh. "Gods I hate high school," she muttered, grimacing a little as she struggled to get more comfortable. The yawning children, the condescending teachers, the constant attempt to evade the teachers notice, all grating on her nerves until she wanted nothing more than to scream.Teacher's Pet TG: with a Genie in Short Stories More Like This
"Jean," came the teacher's voice, drilling through her daydreams, "what can you tell me about the djinn?"
"Well, for one thing," she yawned, "they generally don't have to take classes on themselves." She stiffened as she felt the eyes on her, carefully checking to make sure none of her body was leaking smoke before choosing her next words. "Because Um you know they have genetic memory which tells them what they need
Change - TGHe poked the earth with his stick. "Change me," he demanded. It made no sound, and he stomped his foot in irritation. "Change me!" he repeated, stomping his foot lightly.Change - TG in Short Stories More Like This
The word hung in the air; he scowled, and stomped home.
The earth stood still; but not. Ants marched across its surface, carrying bits of leaves. Animals wandered about, skipping around twigs. The sun moved, and the shadows with it, and later the moon. The day passed; the boy came back, and dropped a furit on the ground.
"Now change me!"
"Why not?" he demanded, sitting on the floor. He prodded the ground with his finger, refusing to accept its silence. "Why won't you change meee!?"
"Because you're too young. Too rash; to brash. Because you do not know what you want, yet."
"I know I want this," he muttered, shifting about. He glanced up at the sky, lying down on the ground. "Mom says you were never good at doing things quickly, though "
"Your mother is right; think on it. On what you want. C
College Girls - TGKevin glanced uncomfortably over his shoulder as Jared nudged him into room, giving in with a sigh as he stepped on the carpet. "Are you sure we should be doing this?" he muttered, nervously glancing around as Kerina walked through the door. He trailed a finger across the fainted pink paint of the walls, wiping his hands on his jeans in disgust when it came away grey.College Girls - TG in Short Stories More Like This
"Don't be such a spoil sport," grinned Jared. "We've got Kerina on our side!"
Kevin just snorted, a puff of dust rising from the tile as he let his sleeping back thump to the floor. "That's what worries me. No offense, sis, but camping out in a girl's dorm room with the mistress of zappy?"
"Aww!" she grinned, drawing him into a hug as he squirmed. A brown strand of hair tickled his nose, an uncharacteristically cute sneeze coming forth as she giggled. "Don't worry, little sis! I promised not to give you breasts, tonight, remember?"
"Siiiiiiiiiiiis!" he whined, glancing at Jared. "You told me you wouldn't call me that in p
Chemistry - TG"Stupid science class." The chemicals tinkled down into the beaker under the not so watchful eye of their fourteen year old chemist. "Too many dumb dang formulas..." he grabbed the next chemical blindly, adding it in with a flourish as purple smoke puffed, turning a sickly green a moment later; he'd messed up the work in class, the professor was making him stay after class with the "special" chemicals. "Not a word of what makes them so dang special, of course," he muttered under his breath.Chemistry - TG in Short Stories More Like This
He hated it when professors did things like that; when they didn't just send the kids to "Waifly." The thought of going there made Danny shiver; he had no idea what went on in that school, but everyone talked about it in hushed whispers, a place where they sent those who made too much trouble for the children. The people who just messed up were just asked to do "special chores." Sometimes, though, the kids didn't seem to respond to that either.
"Made me look bad in front of Cara, too," he added unde
Time Share - TGStefan stretched in his seat at the college cafeteria, blinking when he felt the rough fabric of jeans. Staring in embarrassment at the sight of it on another man's butt, he practically tipped the table in his rush to remove it. For a moment the hand seemed to linger, the denim jeans tightening in its grasp as Stefan's heart beat a drop too fast. It let go as the man began to turn, raising an eyebrow as he glanced around the room to see who'd goosed him. Stefan's face flushed as the eyes lingered on him for a moment, a blush spreading across his cheeks as he turned hastily away, feet tight together and arms locked. He watched the man shrug from the corner of his eye, looking at the rippling muscle of his back as he walked on. He wondered for a moment what it would feel like beneath his hand, before shaking the thought off.Time Share - TG in Short Stories More Like This
"I'm going crazy," he muttered to himself, shoveling a bit of food into his mouth and chewing. He couldn't seem to taste the food as it slid down his throat, the man
Choices 4 - TGYou stare helplessly as your sister slips the ring on, mouth hung open a little as the metal slides against her skin. For a moment nothing happens, and you wonder at your own stupidity. Until the rings begin to glow.Choices 4 - TG in Short Stories More Like This
You freeze, your skin suddenly crawling. It feels like there are ants at work, pushing and pulling beneath the surface. You gag as something presses against your nipples, a sudden heady pleasure rushing through your body as the spheres grow. Your nipples are more sensitive than they should be, and you know that something is wrong, but you can't bring yourself to care as they rub against the rough cloth of your shirt, stiffening as the pleasure thuds through you.
You pant instead, your face feminizing even as your mouth drops open. You feel your hips cracking out, and your new, delicate, hands carass them. They slide up your body as your waist curves inwards, pausing on your breasts for a moment. The gentlest of nudges spills them out of your shirt, shredding the cloth as r
Valentines - TGLindsey hesitated for a moment before thrusting the heart shaped box towards her boyfriend, waiting for him to get a grip before asking, "Do you love me?"Valentines - TG in Short Stories More Like This
Riley blushed in response, his face flushing red as he stammered at her. "Wh-wha?"
"It's valentines day," she whispered, embarrassment battling with frustration at his stuttering. "And I wanna know if you love me. Before you take the box."
He blushed again, but nodded, relief flooding through her even with his confused expression. "What's all this about?" he asked.
"Nothing," she muttered, her fingers trailing against the cardboard surface. She gripped the trail of the ribbon as she went, slipping the cover off as the chocolates inside began to melt. "I've just been giving things a lot of thought, is all about the two of us "
"Are you breaking up with me?" he demanded, glancing at the melting chocolates in his hands. "Are these break up chocolates? That melt?" He glanced between them and her, panic displa
Ethalia - Apprentice Muse TGI sighed, twirling a finger through my hair as I watched it shift from brown to red and back again, making a pit stop at blue along the way. I let it cycle a few times from boredom, before making a face at it and telling it to settle down while I typed ideas into Kevin's brain. The screen lit up as I put in something about a ball, shifting from one screen to the next as I pushed him away from one idea and towards another. I grinned, sliding into the groove of things as I pushed my chair in a circle, twirling to the one directly behind me and dragging the keyboard with me.Ethalia - Apprentice Muse TG in Short Stories More Like This
The familiar drop down list of characters came down on the blue screen, as I shifted down the list. Most of them wouldn't even talk to me, I remembered, a bit of bitterness spoiling my mood. All too afraid of what story of theirs I was going to have Kevin tell the world next. My eyes hit a new name, a crash making me look up before I could look at it too long.
I stood up with a groan, edging my way out of the Muse cen
Gender Fights - TGJames dodged to the side, keeping his weight balanced carefully on his toes as he leaned backwards to avoid the next punch. The specialized gloves on his hands let out a slow whine, growling their readiness as the crowd roared in the background. He ignored both of them, jabbing outward at his opponent's left side. He waited for the moment when the man dodged before pulling back and striking with the other, eyes wide in satisfaction when his fist smashed into the others abdomen, the skin rippling as it caved inward.Gender Fights - TG in Short Stories More Like This
His grin slipped as he felt a fist crash into his cheek, the shock of impact pushing him back a little as his face began to burn. He closed his eyes as his vision blurred, letting the discomfort pass through him as his face shifted before blinking them open again.
He could see better now, he decided, gently feeling across his face with his glove to make sure no damage had been done. The buffers were supposed to stop actual impact beyond the transformation, but accidents happ
