Why must my weekend be filled with bizarre situations? I woke up in absolute darkness, and I had no clue where I was. From what I could recall from last night, I was in my room attempting to beat Dragon Age. I remember playing for a couple hours, but everything after that was a blank. I remember some kind of rat creature entering my room, but was that just some weird kind of dream? I looked around and noticed that highly advanced technology was everywhere. I could make out steel consoles with various buttons underneath the veil of shadows. I also found that I was strapped to some sort of chair, I was bound to the spot and unable to move. I struggled to move my hands and feet, but the straps held them tightly in place.
"Struggle all you want, you won't escape!" The light flickered on, and out of the darkness came a rat in a white lab-coat. She wore blue gloves, and a nifty pair of goggles. She had white fur, and wavy whiskers. The rat walked towards me with a syringe clenched firmly in her paws. "I shall modify you and make you more awesome!" She shouted, as she moved the syringe towards my neck. The needle gently pierced my skin, as I felt a painful prick in my neck. I let out a high-pitched squeal as the needle is removed from my neck. "And now, the mutation begins! While you're mutating, I'm going to go order pizza! What kind do you want?" She asked while laughing sadistically. "P-pepperoni and mushrooms..." I said in a weak tone of voice, as the transformation took hold of me. "Alright, I'll go order!"
The rat skipped off, as my brows began to sweat. My face began to shift and contort, my nostrils flared, and my ears started expanding. My lips twitched, as I felt them start to expand slightly. My jawbone let out a series of painful crunching sounds, as my face began to grow a muzzle from it. My nose withdrew into my face, becoming much thinner in the process. My nostrils flared, as they grew larger. My sense of smell heightened, as I soon found that I could smell things that a normal human could have no chance of ever smelling. My mind began to work into overtime, as I found myself categorizing every smell despite the fact that most of the smells were new to me. My ears continued to grow, as I found my hearing quality begin to increase. I could hear various sounds that I normally couldn't, I could even hear the rat in the next room ordering pizza over the phone! My hair grew out and became shaggier, and started blanketing the sides of my face in the process. The hair became mangier, and turned into something akin to fur. As the fur moved downward, some of it pooled around my chin and formed into a small goatee. This struck me as odd, as I was never able to properly grow one.
The fur continued to move downwards from my face as it covered my neck, arms, legs, and torso in the process. The growing fur rubbed up against the inside of my clothing, giving me an uncomfortable itch all over my body. And because I was shackled to the chair, I couldn't scratch it even if I wanted to! I struggled in my seat as my itchy fur continued to grow out. If that wasn't bad enough, my feet began to painfully ache and convulse. They were shifting as well, as I soon found my shoes uncomfortable to wear. My warped feet no longed fit in my shoes, and I quickly pulled them out of my loose-fitting runners. My feet continued to transform, ripping my socks in the process of the transformation. As my contorting toes ripped through my socks, I caught glimpse of my new feet. I was shocked to discover that they weren't feet at all, but a second pair of hands!
I struggled to get out of my chair as I felt the changes continue. My spine began to ache, as I felt the bones lining it crack and shift. My spine grew out, pushed the flesh on top of my tailbone outwards. This flesh and bone combined to form what I could only describe as a new tail, but I soon found it to be more flexible than any tail I ever had grown before! This tail was long, and was covered in the same brown fur as the rest of my body. The tail twitched around and moved in accordance with my will, I quickly found it to be prehensile! I wiggled my furry tail around in the uncomfortable seat, as my transformation subsided.
The shackles opened up and released from my entrapment, as I quickly leapt off the chair and looked around. I had no clue where that rat was, or what was actually going on here. The lab was dark, and I couldn't easily discern where the exit was. That's when a familiar scent wafted in through my nostrils, and I found that it was amplified to an immense degree. It was the unmistakable scent of pepperoni pizza! I waved my tail back and forth excitedly as I ran through the darkened lab. The scent was driving me mad, I just had to have one slice of cheese pizza! I followed the scent to a dimly lit hallway, and quickly made my way to the scent's point of origin.
I threw open the door, only to be greeted by a completely black room. Suddenly, the light flicked on and I was shocked by what I saw. Various scientists in lab-coats hopped out and shouted, "Happy birthday, Jam!" Jam? What kind of name was that? My name was J--- What was my name again? It couldn't be Jam, that wasn't my name! Strangely enough though, it did feel like a name that belonged to me. The scientists were all various furries of differing species, but one caught my eye. It was the rat from earlier, the one who mutated me! As I walked over to her, I took notice of a mirror on the far side of the room. What I saw shocked and surprised me, I was a spider-monkey furry! I let out a simian screech, as I hopped over to the mirror. I had a long furry tail, a pink simian face, scruffy brown fur, goofy ears, and four hands. I turned my attention back to the rat. "What did you do to me you crazy rat?" The rat scoffed at me, as she poured herself a drink.
"What did I do to you? I mutated you and gave you superpowers!" My ears perked at just the mention of the word, "Did you say I have superpowers? Seriously?!" The rat nodded in response, "Yes! Just concentrate and you'll be able to use them." I closed my eyes and focussed, I was hoping that my superpowers would allow me to fire optic blasts out of my eyelids! I opened my eyes, and found myself on the other side of the room. I looked down, and found myself staring at a white lab-coat containing a pair of perky breasts. My face was stretched out before my eyes, and I soon found that I was in another body! I looked across the room, and saw my spider-monkey self staring back at me while grinning. "Like it? You're probably used to body-swapping using pills or helmets, but now you can control the swap! You can swap whenever and wherever you want by simply using your mind!"
I closed my eyes and concentrated, as I soon found myself back in my transformed body. "So, what do you think? Do you like your new body and powers, Jam?" I wanted to say no, but I couldn't deny the thrill of being able to swap on the dime like this. Not to mention the fact that my new body was far more flexible. "Why did you choose to mutate me and give me these powers?" I asked, as I scratched at my furry head. "Its simple, Jam. I needed a new intern, most of my interns are houseflies now due to a molecular teleporter incident. Furry lab assistants can only get you so far, which is why I chose you as my new intern. A human is a perfect subject to transform into a furry!" I frowned, as I thought this over. I was used to be Raven's guinea pig, but a guinea pig to a rat? I wanted to say no, until I noticed the lab-coats of the various scientists scattered about. The "Applied Synergetics" logo was branded on the front of their lab-coats, causing me to immediately rethink my opinion on this place. Applied Synergetics is where I bought all of my body-swap related products from. These guys are responsible for all of my insane misadventures! With such memories in place, there was no way I could turn down such an amazing offer.
"Alright, I'll join. One question though, why can't I remember my name?" Lara giggled in response, "That's just a side-effect, Jam! Besides, if you want to remember your name just look at your driver licence!" I did as instructed and reached my monkey paw into my pocket. I pulled out my wallet, and looked at my license. It read, "Jam, The Spider-Monkey." I sighed, as I placed the card back in the wallet and pocketed it. "That's not my name! I know it isn't!" Lara continued to cackle like a madwoman, "That's true, but I feel that a little misplaced identity helps in the workplace! Tell you what, work for me for a couple weeks and I'll not only pay you but I'll also give you your name back! And maybe in time I might un-mutate you!"
With that kind of offer I couldn't exactly say no, so I decided to accept her offer. I leapt off my feet and landed on my hands, doing a rather impressive hand-stand in the process. I lifted my left hand-foot towards Lara for a shake, "Alright, I'm in. I better not regret this." Lara grabbed hold of my foot and shook it firmly. "Don't worry, Jam, you will!" After the shake, Lara introduced me to her various associates. A horse, a rabbit, an alligator, a bunch of raccoon clones, and various other individuals. Afterwards, Lara took me to a room in the back and presented me with a black case. "It's dangerous to go alone, take these!" I grabbed the case from her and shook it, "What's in here? A bomb? An interdimnesional portal? My soul? Spiderman 2?"
The rat shook her head, "No, none of those amazing things can be found in that case. In that box is your essentials, and you will definitely love what you see!" I reached in and pulled out a fancy silver helmet with numerous buttons and antennae sticking out of it. I placed the helmet on my head, and went to remove the second item from the case. It was a lab-coat with the Applied Synergetics logo on it. I placed on the lab-coat next, as Lara prepared to give me instructions. "The lab-coat is your official outfit! You shall where nothing but the lab-coat, and nothing underneath the lab-coat! If the coat gets damaged, you shall be forced to walk around naked until a replacement is ordered. That shouldn't really be a problem since fur is covering all of your naughty bits anyways. The helmet is especially useful, if you press the red button in the middle while someone is in your body then they will act and think just like how you normally would. Its perfect for espionage, or if you want to slip away from a boring meeting. Any questions?" I nodded my head, "Just one. What's your name? Seriously, you kidnap me, mutate me, throw me a pizza party, hire me to do a job, and you don't even introduce yourself! How rude is that?"
The rat began to chuckle once more, "My name is Lara! Geez, I thought you'd never ask!" I rolled my eyes, as I walked out of the room. Lara followed close behind, "Also, Jam. You have body-swap powers that are fully at your disposal, so be sure to spread plenty of chaos! Without chaos, the mad science just isn't complete!" I grinned sadistically as I thought about all the chaos and ruckus I could cause with my powers. Lara had definitely piqued my interest on what I could do with such inhuman abilities. "Don't worry, boss, I definitely will!" I walked out the door and looked for my first victims. I noticed a lioness with rather large breasts walking on the street, as a rather young skunk furry took notice of her. I grinned like a Cheshire cat, as I thought about swapping myself into both of their bodies and getting them stuck in a three-way swap. Whoever I was before didn't matter, there was only Jam! I may not be evil, but I couldn't pass up the chance to wreak some havoc! It was time for me to work the ol' monkey magic!
"Ever seen a grown man naked, Billy?"
