Ryan finds a remote that can swap people's bodies and more. Additions encouraged!
|One day, a package is delivered to Ryan's house and is addressed to him. Inside he finds a remote with several functions:|
Body Swap: swaps the bodies of the targets. Targets keep their own clothes.
Body Swap with Clothes: swaps the bodies and clothes of the targets. (this includes tattoos, makeup, piercings, and hairstyles)
Body and Life Swap: targets will swap bodies and think they are each other.
Clothes Swap: targets will swap clothes (this includes tattoos, makeup, piercings, and hairstyles)
Personality Swap: targets will swap personalities. This will also swap toys and posters and other such personality related possessions.
Undo: undoes the last swap
Reset: puts everything back to normal
Only the people holding the remote during the swap will think anything is different. The one exception is that if someone is aware of a particular swap, if the Reset or Undo buttons are used to undo that swap, they will still be aware of it being reset even if they are not holding the remote. Things would get complicated if this wasn't the case.
The remote will always travel with the user to prevent losing the remote or having it stolen by a swapee.
The remote does not work on pictures, videos, etc., only on real people.
There is some room for interpretation on how some of the buttons work in specific situations, namely Personality Swap and Body and Life Swap, but please keep it consistent in a story branch once it's established how they work in that branch.
This story stands on its own, but it is also the first part in a series of loosely related interactive stories that share the same universe.
No killing characters
No abruptly ending the story. If you want to end it, go ahead, but please build up to it and try not to have it too early.
No adding remote powers
Keep with the continuity of the story branch. For example, I leave minor character descriptions up to you, but please keep them consistent in each branch.
Keep the story in 3rd Person PoV. That means he, his, etc. not I, me, or you. I have nothing wrong with writing in 1st or 2nd person but I like to keep things consistent. If you do happen to not follow this rule I will fix your chapter. You've been warned so don't freak out if I do it. As for PoV, as long as Ryan has the remote you must follow him, if he somehow looses it or gives it to someone else, you can either follow the new remote carrier or follow Ryan as he tries to get it back. In some cases you can follow other characters for a while as they explore changes as long as you come back to Ryan at some point.
Please use good spelling and grammar. This is my biggest pet peeve (yes I'm a huge Grammar Nazi ). If you make a small mistake, I will fix it, but if your chapter is impossibly illegible, I will delete it because I will not waste my time trying to figure out what you wrote and then fixing it.
Other than that, feel free to do almost anything. You can add whatever other characters you want; neighbors, friends, enemies, acquaintances, aunts, uncles, cousins, random strangers or whatever. Just don't add additional siblings (unless of course Ryan's mom gives birth to a new baby, which is unlikely since she really doesn't want any more kids).
Don't be afraid to add! The story isn't going to write itself you know...
Running list of characters. I'll keep updating this list as characters get introduced and expanded upon.
Ryan Martin: 16 year old boy; main character. Ryan is basically an average guy. He doesn't really like sports that much. He likes video games and all kinds of rock music. He has short dark brown hair and has average height and weight, standing at about 5'11".
Ashley Martin: Ryan's 18 year old sister. She is very bitchy and bossy and genuinely derives pleasure from manipulating others. She is also lazy and doesn't help out around the house. She otherwise has a typical girly personality. She and Ryan get on each others' nerves frequently. She has long and straight blond hair and a slim figure. She is very attractive, with C-cup breasts and a height of 5'7".
Susan Martin: Ryan's 42 year old mother. She is very caring and helpful. She's satisfied with just two kids and doesn't plan on having anymore. She has shoulder length brown hair and she has a pretty average figure for a woman of her age, a height of 5'5", and C-cup breasts.
John Martin: Ryan's 44 year old father. He's a big sports fan, loves to cook food on the grill, and he plays golf a lot. He's a pretty cool dad but he tells really bad jokes. He's kind of tall at 6'0" and has short dark hair.
Sarah Townsend: Ryan's 16 year old girlfriend. She's an all around awesome girl who moved to town a little over two years ago. She's sweet, attractive, and lots of fun to be around. She can always seem to find something to do. She's very girly but she doesn't mind playing video games or stuff like that. She has long and wavy brown hair, beautiful green eyes, B-cup breasts, and a height of 5'3". She and Ryan have been going out for almost two years.

They like to go to rock concerts together and can often be found playing Halo into the late hours of the night in Jake's basement. He is an only child. He is quite tall at 6'2" and has wavy blond hair that just covers his ears. He and Ryan have been best friends since kindergarten.

He's kind of scrawny, wears glasses, and has a height of 5'8". He has dark hair and he keeps it short because it's so curly.
Kelly Bryant: Ashley's 18 year old best friend. She's been Ashley's best friend since elementary school. She has the potential to be a nice person, but as it stands she's almost as bitchy as Ashley. She is loyal to Ashley and very much a follower, basically Ashley's minion. She has curly light brown hair that comes down to just above her shoulders and B-cup breasts. She also has a small and petite frame, standing at only 5'1".

She is pretty close with her son since Jake's dad died when he was a little kid. She works as a realtor at a local agency. She's still quite an attractive 5'6" woman, with a nice figure, straight, shoulder length dark hair, C-cup breasts, and a pair of shapely legs.

Emma Blake: Alex's 12 year old sister. She's a total tomboy; she like sports, video games, and action movies and she would never be caught dead wearing a dress. She has straight dark hair that comes down just to the bottom of her ears, A-cup breasts, and a height of 5'0".
Hannah Blake: Alex's 10 year old sister. She's basically everything Emma isn't. She likes princesses, ponies, dresses, etc. It's weird to see her not wearing a skirt or a dress. She has long dark hair and often wears it in pigtails, a height of 4'5", and hasn't yet begun to develop breasts.

Anna Stevens: Jennifer's 8 year old daughter.
Max Stevens: Jennifer's 6 year old son.
Carol Lowell: Ryan's 36 year old aunt. Susan's sister. She's the cool aunt of Ryan's mother's three sisters. She's still pretty attractive and can still pull off wearing tight jeans and low cut tops. She has straight shoulder length blond hair, B-cup breasts, and a height of 5'6".
David Lowell: Ryan's 37 year old Uncle. Carol's husband. Works a lot so Ryan usually only seems him during family holiday parties. He's 5'11" and keeps his head shaved.
Mary Lowell: Ryan's 13 year old cousin. David and Carol's daughter. She's feminine but doesn't really have a super girly girl personality. She loves Twilight and she tries to act older than she actually is. She has long and wavy blond hair that comes about halfway down her back, A-cup breasts, and a height of 5'2".
Kate Lowell: Ryan's 11 year old cousin. David and Carol's daughter. She's a little slow about maturing and still acts like a little girl a lot of the time even though she's almost 12 now. She still has a strong attachment to Disney princesses. She has straight shoulder length dark brown hair, A-cup breasts, and a height of 5'0".
Trisha Grant: Ryan's 34 year old aunt. Susan's sister. She's the youngest of Ryan's mom's sisters and a single mother. she has wavy shoulder length light brown hair, D-cup breasts, and a height of 5'5". She has a very liberal parenting style.
Haley Grant: Ryan's 9 year old cousin. Trisha's daughter. Andrew's twin sister. She is the complete definition of a tomboy. Her blond hair is very short for a girl and she flat out refuses to wear dresses and other girly clothes. She loves sports and all the kinds of things that boys her age usually like. She has a height of 4'4".
Andrew Grant: Ryan's 9 year old cousin. Trisha's son. Haley's twin brother. In an almost backwards twist of fate, Andrew is practically Haley's complete opposite. He's not a sissy or anything like that and he dresses like a boy but he has been mistaken for a girl on a few occasions. This is usually due to his long blond hair that reaches just past his shoulders and his somewhat feminine features. He's kind of shy and quiet and doesn't really have an interest in sports and other things that boys typically like. He's 4'4" like his twin sister.
Helen Campbell: Ryan's 39 year old Aunt. Susan's sister. She's kind of strange and she never got married or had kids. She's had some personal issues in the past and that combined with her quirky personality means that Ryan never sees her very much. She has C-cup breasts and a height of 5'6".
