Event: Body Swap; Part One

Everyone involved in the swap will wake up at eight A.M. This may come as a surprise to them if, for example, they did not go to sleep or normally do not sleep at all. Anyone who was awake will find they've been unconscious for two hours. Of course, the fact that they're in another body might be a little more important than the missing time.

At first, this will be an unsettling inconvenience, but for the first day it will be nothing more than that. It's not until later in the day that the memories start leaking through--first inconsequential, little things, but as the week wears on... And those aren't the only side effects. As the days wear on, it becomes clear this body really doesn't want them in it; much like an out of place organ, it's trying to reject them. Every day brings new side effects, every character must suffer from at least one side effect per day. Side effects stack. Characters can check the progression in a mirror: at first, when someone looks in the mirror, they will see their own normal reflection as opposed to that of the body they are swapped into. However, as time passes, their reflection will slowly warp into the one of the body they're swapped into. Once the reflection is completely of the other person, it's too late to save them.

Potential Side Effects

Day One
-memory bleedover; characters will experience some incidental, every day memories of the person whose body they have swapped into

Day Two
-occasional coughing
-memory bleedover; characters will experience more important memories of the person whose body they have swapped into

Day Three
-occasional violent coughing fits
-memory bleedover; characters will experience the most important memories of the person whose body they have swapped into
-power malfunction; the body's powers may fail to work occasionally
-vision problems; everything is slightly blurry and characters appear to have an aura that matches their collar color

Day Four
-more common violent coughing fits; occasionally the coughs will come up bloody due to coughing the throat raw
-memory bleedover; memories of the person whose body they swapped into will begin to replace their own
-power malfunction; the body's powers may fail to work or work too well
-vision problems; everything is incredibly blurry and people are tinted with their collar color

Day Five
-coughing fits accompanied by sneezing violently enough to potentially cause nosebleeds
-memory bleedover; characters will have a difficult time distinguishing who they actually are due to conflicting memories
-power malfunction; the body's powers will either fail or be far too powerful and will never actually work properly
-vision problems; everything is impossibly blurry, and characters will only see those around them as colored smears matching their collar color

Day Six
Death.


The characters do not currently have the information necessary to fix the body swap. However, it won't be too long before the one responsible speaks up; what's a good experiment without a bit of bragging, after all?

What happens if someone swaps in to a body that can't cough/sneeze/bleed? Just get the other symptoms as normal?

When you say "their" collar color, do you mean the character they've swapped INTO's color or the color they are normally?

Can body swap accounts be able to make posts, like join the comm temporarily and then be removed when the event is done?

Kageyama was body swapped with a butterfly uh...
Is he going to bleed from his little butterfly proboscis, or is he not going to get those effects at all...

If you want to select those side effects and Tippi is capable of coughing/sneezing then that's an option.

I just realized that I forgot to ask:

Would it be okay for Mystina to wake up during the body swap in Kuja's body, and Kuja to wake up in Mystina's body with the white bodysuit and needing to eat oatmeal? I wanted to intro her during the swap for lulz but then forgot about what happens when a character arrives.

Forgot to ask before, but since Ryuho is an amnesiac, will Signless actually get any of his memories?
calculatedfire: (Introspective)

[personal profile] calculatedfire 2012-09-18 04:59 pm (UTC)(link)
Okay, thank you!

How do accents work in lieu of the swap? Richtofen has a German accent and Nathan has an Irish one, so would Richtofen-in-Nathan's-body keep his usual German accent but with Nathan's voice, or would he get Nathan's Irish accent too, and vise-versa?

So what would happen if someone in a swapped body died before the six days was up? Just... Suzaku has a murder-persona in his head and is Suzaku so not the most stable.
