Hello everyone. This thread is about a story that is already finished. Perhaps I should have posted this at Chit Chat because I am not seeking world building advice, but considering that the Poll included here is all about a particular type of Magic, I have decided to post it here in the World Building Forum. Please, before voting in the Poll consider this Fantasy scenario: You are camping in a forest with some friends, when you get attacked by a supernatural creature that shoots these searing white sparks at you. The others escape, but then one of the sparks hits you and you experience a terrible pain as you feel your body getting annihilated particle by particle. When your body is gone, it turns out that your inner self remains. You can still perceive the world around you, which allows you to witness how a new body is created... After this, your inner self (with all of your personality and memories) is forced to inhabit the new body that has been crafted by Magic. The problem is that while you remain yourself in your inner self, the new body belongs to the sex opposite to the one your original body used to be. You stand up wearing the same clothing you had before, the new body slowly begins to respond to your command and then you have to face life like this. You had heard about these magical attacks before. You know that your old body is gone forever, that there is no way to fix your situation. This is Permanent. Now, what do you think would happen to you?
