Synopsis

Stuart doesn't really know why he's going to college. He doesn't know why he's in the metamorphic-science program. In fact, he doesn't really know why he's doing *anything,* other than a vague sense of obligation and persistent existential angst. But when he and two of his classmates are caught in a freak lab accident, he suddenly has much bigger things to worry about instead. (Well, make that "in addition to.") With he and his lab partners stuck trying to cope with unfamiliar new bodies, deal with angry *and* curious faculty members, re-integrate into campus life, and come to terms with their own personal issues, it's anybody's guess where it will all end up for them...

The first standalone novel from the weirdo who ringled a number of long-running and highly eclectic interactive stories on Fiction Branches and elsewhere, it's a (hopefully more structured and focused) slice-of-life mad-science gender-bender dramedy full of introspection, emotional growth, and what another author in the community refers to as "gender feels" (plus some good old-fashioned mildly sexy hijinks and dirty jokes.) Don't miss it! Or miss it, whatever, it'll still be here. C'mon. You know you want to.

Updates Fridays, God willing.

    A friend on Discord recommended this story and I binged the first 25 or so chapters in a single sitting. The main character, Stu, is relatable while being frustrating which creates some tension in the story. The paranormal aspect of transformation is handled in a way that easily allows the reader to suspend disbelief. The side characters feel fully fleshed out, they don't feel like cardboard cutouts or NPCs. The level of detail put into the descriptions of demi-human needs and anatomy point at a well-researched and carefully planned story.

    All in all, a very enjoyable read and one I look forward to sharing with others!

    Status: i read the whole thing

    This story was good. I found the basic premise compelling, the characters entertaining, and the protagonist's struggles with their body, gender, and direction in life to be relatable and engaging.

    The ending, however, was abrupt, jarring, and kind of terrible. It resolved the remaining plot conflicts by deus ex machina, and the protagonist's conflicts felt empty and pointless as a result. I left a longer comment on the last chapter, not realizing there was a review function I could have used. As such, this review is perhaps somewhat short, since I don't want to rewrite the whole thing.

    Excellent writing and an incredibly well told tale. The author captures the minutia of everyday anxiety in a narrative that does nothing but improve the overall worldbuilding. The characters are great, the story is well-paced, and all of it is written with love. 

    Love this story and can't wait to read more.

    Grammar, sentence structure, and intent is conveyed extraordinarily well the story has good pacing, and is very original with its cliché usage and content. Overall it is a good story and well thought out plot, dynamic characters and a working bond between them that flushes out the world.

    Personally, this is exactly what I look for in a male to female gender bender story.

    Especially with the new ending, this is one of my favourite stories. Themes of identity and gender exploration, a well realised location, empathetic characters, and honestly, the lessons I took from this story have been incredibly valuable to me. The main protagonist is dealing with two issues which in retrospect, I was struggling with and the story helped me come to terms with, well, at least one of them. The other issue was more directly tackled when I read a specific a self help book, but I'm sure this story helped on an intermediate way, and really helped me engage with the main character in the meantime.

    I just love how personal this story is, and the journey the main character goes on.

    I often say that the best science fiction is just applied philosophy, with an author taking an unsolved question and building a world and characters to puzzle out what one possible answer to that question might look like. This is very good science fiction. Well written, well paced, and well reasoned, the series is a thoughtful look on causality, gender expression, and the self all rolled into one. The story is a little bit bittersweet, and doesn't give any easy answers, but I also think there's something powerful and worthwhile in all of the personal journeys that each of the characters go through by the end. I didn't expect to enjoy this series as much as I did when I picked it up, but I would easily recommend it to anyone, and I'll probably find myself reading it again very soon.

    An absolutely amazing story that asks a lot of really big questions, and often leaves them for you to answer yourself, with an answer that is meaningful to you. This story is 100% worth your time and energy, and you won't regret picking it up for a minute.
