    I have an idea that maybe in a story like this the formerly thin one's time spent in a fat body forces them to realize that they were secretly FFA all along, and all the teasing/meanness towards fat girls was just a "doth protest too much" type denial/immature bid for attention a la a kid being mean to another kid they actually "like-like". And similarly, the one who was originally fat realizing that while they may enjoy the increased attention and social rewards of being thin, there are actually aspects of living in a fat body that they love and miss. Cue fatty-turned-skinny deciding to embrace her curves and ditch dieting after the switch back, while skinny-turned-fatty may or may not vow to eat her way back to her former fat foe's weight once she's back to her slim self (possibly with said former foe's help). May involve varying degrees of the two developing not only a friendship but also a feeder-feedee and/or romantic relationship.

    And, playing off the "Freaky Friday" plotline, this would be the theme song:

    Long Range Sabotage
    James Matheson is an astronaut, and an exceptional one, since he's been hand-picked for the first manned mission to Jupiter. Undergoing even more rigorous training than normal astronauts, the crew is eventually ready for the mission. Aboard their ship they're hooked up to the latest hibernation equipment that will keep him and his crewmates healthy for the almost three years it will take to get to Jupiter on a Hohnmann Transfer Orbit (selected for maximum efficiency).

    Unfortunately for James and his crewmates, the hibernation system was sabotaged, and so they awake in Jupiter orbit to find they've all put on a hundred pounds or more during the voyage, meaning they can't fit into their spacesuits, or even properly pilot the lander. Worse, they no longer have enough supplies to allow them to get home. Uncertain of what to do, they send a message home, and try to figure out what to do. Investigating the system, they figure out how the system was sabotaged, but unfortunately, can't fix it, since they don't have the right spare parts.

    A mission comes back from earth saying that a rescue mission is on the way, but that it will take over a year to get there, and that, despite the consequences, they'll only be able to make that long by going back into hibernation. With nothing else to do, the crew agrees to put the plan into action, and re-enters hibernation.

    Awakened by the rescue team, the astronauts are relieved to be in good hands, but dismayed to find they've put on almost another fifty pounds, with James reaching over 300 pounds. Worse, not only does this sabotage prevent them from completing their mission, but will also result in their being dropped as astronauts.

    James and the crew return to earth to find that, due to the covert sabotage, that the Chinese have made the first manned landing on one of Jupiter’s moons.

    The Biggening
    Jillian Trovey is a young woman in crisis. Having wracked up a huge student debt for a business degree, she’s now struggling desperately to find work. One day, she sees an advert for an up-coming reality TV program “The Biggening”. Although the premise - getting fat for viewers’ entertainment - disgusts her, the prize for winning would be more than enough to pay off her debts. After several more weeks of fruitless job-hunting, and just before the cutoff date, she applies for the program.

    Once accepted, Jillian is explained the rules. The program will run for six months, with contestants doing everything in their power to gain as much weight as possible in that time. Weigh-ins are taken weekly, with the contestant who gained the most that week getting a $1000 bonus, on top of the fixed $10/lb. In addition, there will be monthly eliminations for those who ‘haven’t been putting in enough effort’.

    Although Jillian starts off weak - almost being eliminated the first month - she quickly picks up steam, and inches. Although she misses both first and second place prizes (the latter by just a few pounds), she’s fortunate to attract the attention of one of the program’s backers, who offers her a job that allows here to pay off the remains of her debt.

    The Gainer Game
    Jeff Anderson is a college football player. One weekend he’s invited over by several of his teammates for a beer night. After they’ve had a few, their host pulls out an old board-game he found in the attic, “The Gainer Game”. Not thinking too much of it, they all agree to have a go. Although they laugh about things at first, they quickly realise something is up, when their clothes begin to feel tight.

    Stopping the game, Jeff and his teammates go to examine themselves, and find, to their dismay that they’ve each gained between thirty and fifty pound. Reading over the rules again, they find out that they’re stuck. Quitting the game now will result in the extra pounds being unlosable, so they agree to sit down and continue, despite knowing that only one of them will be walking away thin.

    Continuing the game, the team camaraderie breaks down as each player does his best to be the winner. Finally the game is over, but that’s when the arguments really begin, as most of the players have ended up gaining over a hundred pounds, leaving them contemplation both their own situations, and that of the team, which will now have to pull out of the state competition.

    Cheerless Fate
    Camilla Prescott is a happy cheerleader. A few days ago she won a competition to get a year’s supply of chocolate from Palace Confectionary. Despite the potentially fattening nature of the treats, she and her fellow cheerleaders adore the rich flavour, and so make it their one guilty pleasure.

    A month later, Camilla falls during a routine, and fractures her ankle. Taken to the doctor, she’d told it will be at least six weeks before she can walk on it, and several months before she can get back to cheerleading.

    Sitting at home feeling dejected, Camilla begins to comfort-eat to ease her sorrow, something she can do amply now she has her years supply of chocolate mostly to herself. Although worried at first of the pounds she’s bound to gain from eating, she consoles herself that she’ll exercise them off quickly enough when she’s back up to full strength.

    Things go well enough for a few weeks, but then after a month and a half, Camilla slips on some stairs, injuring her leg and hip. This time the doctor quotes a time of eight months at the soonest before she’ll be able to rejoin the team, and that she’ll be on mostly bed rest for at least a couple of weeks.

    Disconsolate, Camilla doesn’t even bother to try to stop eating the chocolates, knowing that she’ll likely never be able to rejoin the team anyway, and so seeing no reason to moderate herself.

    As weeks turn into months, Camilla’s attitude improves little. Fortunately, salvation is at hand in the form of Jared, who’s a bit shy, and something of a nerd, but she’s thankful for the attention, because her grades have been distinctly poor of late. Under Jared’s gentle tutelage, her grades improve soon hitting mostly B’s and B+’s with a few A-’s.

    Finally, after many months, Camilla is declared fully healthy. However, her cheerleading days are long over, as she’s gotten distinctly plump (in excess of 200 pounds), and she finds her time with Jared so enjoyable that she has no inclination to try to slim down.

    Outland Queen
    Trasima is a woman rather unsatisfied with her lot in life. Despite her high-born origins, her appearance (short, round-faced, and decidedly plump) and demeanor (kindly, unambitious, and bookish) have meant being passed over by suitor after suitor. Finally, her family sent her off to an ambitious young lord on the border of the Outlands, a wild territory ruled by barbarian raiders. Unfortunately, her husband is more interested in what he can gain from the marriage than in her.

    One day, while out visiting a local farm, the raiders attack, and Trasima is taken prisoner. Dragged before the chief and his advisors it's initially decided to random her, but after she explains she probably won't fetch much of a price, she is instead 'wed off' to the chief's third son, a young man in his early teens.

    Although at first resentful for the situation, Trasima quickly finds the young man is actually a rather caring individual, more so than the lord was. In addition, her plumpness, often regarded as unattractive in the city, is admired by the tribe, and indeed, she's encouraged to grow larger.

    As the years pass, Trasima becomes a respected figure. Her position and demeanor allow her to head off several crises, and see to the tribe becoming the largest and most prosperous in the area. This all comes to an end though, when the tribe is attacked by an army from the city, which results in the deaths of many of the tribe.

    Calling a meeting of the clan-heads, Trasima pulls off a stunning piece of diplomacy, and gets everyone to agree to sack the city in revenge. To the surprise of many, the plan comes off, and the city is taken. The attack does lead to a second army arriving, but this time the tribes are United, and so manage to defeat it. For these two stunning victories, Trasima is named as 'Queen of the Tribes'.

    Broken Bear

    Darvis is a famous and feared bounty Hunter. Almost seven feet tall, solidly built and immensely strong. As well as his other kit, he’s never seen without his bearskin cloak, which is widely reputed to give him skin-shifting powers.

    One day, Darvis is given a bounty to capture a dangerous witch. It takes him months to track her down, but eventually he corners her in an old ruin. Unfortunately, things quickly go wrong, as she’s not a witch, but a sorcerer, which is much more powerful, and that power is only amplified by the ruins, which is a magical circle.

    Not realising the danger, Darvis, trusting his reflexes and skills to win the day, but the sorcerer has other plans. Striking out with her magic, the sorcerer hits her target, and sets his bearskin cloak aflame with magica fire. Falling to the ground to try to extinguish the flames, he quickly finds himself helpless, for as his cloak burns, he reverts to how he was before finding the cloak, not nearly 7’ tall, but as rather average 5’ 4”, but still weighing over 350 pounds.

    The sorcerer quickly takes advantage of Darvis’ problems. Removing his armour and clothes, she fits him with a halter, turning him into a small pony, and a complaint one, despite his own wishes.

    Over the months of living with the sorcerer, Darvis finds himself growing from a small pony to an average-sized riding horse. This increase in size bleeds over when the witch removes the halter, leaving him as a blob of flesh.

    Flabiator
    Varastas is a young man with a problem. Due to a bandit attack, his father and older brother are killed, leaving the family destitute. Desperate to take any work he can find to support his family, he eventually finds a job that pays well enough, one advertising the position of a ‘flabiator’.

    Although happy that his family will have enough to get by on at least, Varastas quickly finds his ‘job’ despicable. As it turns out, a flabiator is something like a gladiator, except that they’re immensely fat, and their weapons are designed to not penetrate deep enough to get through the fat.

    Five years pass, and Varastas’ family is finally on a firm financial footing again. Free of his burden, he quits the arena, and tries to get a job elsewhere. Unfortunately, he not terribly well educated, has developed something of a violent temperament over the years, and is decidedly unfit for most jobs, including gladiator and soldier. After a few months of increasingly desperate searching, all the while being a drain on his family, he resigns himself to his fate and re-enters the arena again.

    Mother’s Sacrifice
    Jessie is a mother with a problem. Her seven-year old daughter, May, is doing poorly at school due to being bullied constantly about her weight, which no amount of exercise and dieting can seem to fix. With no real explanation for what is happening, she tries expert after expert to explain what’s going on, all without success, until she finally goes to an old gypsy lady, who, after examining her, explains there’s a curse on her and her family. Desperate, to alleviate her daughter’s suffering, Jessie questions whether there is any way to break the curse, which the gypsy admits there is, but that Jessie herself must ‘take on her childrens’ burden’, which she initially refuses.

    Two painful years pass, and Jessie returns to the gypsy, and finally agrees to break the curse. Inviting the gypsy home, they set up the ceremony. It isn’t an instant fix however, as Jessie’s children won’t suddenly become thin, they will have to exercise and diet, with Jessie gaining each shed pound, but it will break the curse.

    As the years pass, Jessie’s weight become increasingly problematic, to the point that she’s bed-bound. But she couldn’t be happier, as her children, are living life to the fullest, with her daughter even in a relationship. The gypsy has become a close friend, regularly visiting to ensure that Jessie is as comfortable as she can be.

    Big Plans Bigger Waist
    James is a personal trained who’s just taken on a huge task, attempting to help a 450 lb divorced multi-millionare slim down. Things aren’t made easier by the fact that the woman has already burned through most of the female personal trainers in the area.

    Things start of poorly, with James and the client having frequent arguments about what the plan should be. Finally, James hits upon an idea, since he has no experience of dealing with clients her size, he will bulk himself up to her weight, and they will then slim down together. The woman agrees readily.

    Over the next year and a half, James gains over 300 lb, completing the first part of the contract. However, as reaches, and then overtakes his client’s weight, he realises that his long yet rapid bulking plan is much more difficult to stop than he thought. Nevertheless, he is determined to succeed.

    Another six months passes, and James finally admits defeat. Not only has his client not lost a pound, but at over 500 lb himself, he’s struggling to merely get around. Fortunately, the woman is thankful for his attempts, and has, in fact, become rather attracted to him. They’re married a few months later.

    Royal Cost
    Hermina is an ambitious woman. The daughter of a rich merchant, she seeks higher office yet, a royal one. At a high-class ball, she meets and attempts to befriend one of the kings sons. The prince sees her for what she is, but keeps that hidden, and agrees to court her. During their courting, the prince admits that he likes ‘larger’ girls, and so, ever eager to do what is necessary to win the prince’s affections, Hermina decides to get as fat as possible.

    With the resources of the palace, and the backing of the prince, Hermina has little trouble arranging it so that she always has food to hand. Unfortunately, other members of the family seem rather disapproving, so the Prince offers to allow her to move to one of the royal manors out in the country. Ecstatic at having exclusive access to the prince, she accepts his offer.

    The manor does indeed prove to be rather remote, though this pleases Hermina well, since it means fewer prying, judging eyes. The staff also seem rather more forgiving, even helpful. An invalid bed is located, so that Hermina won’t even have to waste time getting up to go to the toilet.

    Months pass as Hermina, doing but little but eat and sleep, quickly packs on the pounds. She’s also kept almost permanently drunk, to prevent her from realising her plight.

    After almost a year, the process is finally interrupted, and Hermina is revealed her betrayal. The constant feeding has resulted in her weight rocketing to over 300 pounds, more than her withered leg muscles can support on their own. The prince comes in, and states that he knew from the start that she was only after power, and that she has it, as lady of the manor, but that she’ll never be queen.

    Spacebound
    Patrick Gordon is a special guy. Young, fit, healthy and intelligent, he’s been selected as one of a thousand colonists to a new star system. After years of technical and physical training, he and his future colonists go into hibernation (felt to be a safer alternative to cold-sleep) for the long trip to the selected colony world.

    Unfortunately, things don’t go smoothly. Six months into what is meant to be a three year journey, a regulator on the nutrient delivery system breaks, leading to the system over-delivering. A year later, a nutrient-supply alarm trips due to nutrient supplied reaching low levels. Dropping out of FTL the ship implements and emergency protocol directing it to the nearest star system.

    Upon awaking, Patrick is horrified at what he and his fellow colonists have become. Once slim and fit, the malfunction has left him a gross parody, almost thrice his former weight, and with no extra muscle to complement it, the artificial gravity has to be turned down to half just to stay mobile. Unfortunately, there’s no inhabitable planets in the system, and rescue is over a year away, so they have to make do with whatever they can cannibalise from the ship and supplies.

    The colonists quickly run into problems due to lack of food. Although they do eventually manage to rig up a hydroponics system, weeks of near starvation have resulted in having to turn the gravity down to a tenth due to muscle wastage not mirrored by losing much weight.

    When rescue finally arrives, a year and a half later, the physiological changes are near irreversible. Those remaining survivors are so used to a low-gravity environment that it would take years of rehabilitation to return them to normal, and so, it’s decided to not bother unless requested.

    Patrick does eventually reach the new colony, but hasn’t taken the option of rehabilitation, and so is given the job of managing the orbital factories, along with his wife, another survivor of the disaster.

    A Mother’s Plight

    Emily Goodman is a young woman in trouble. Waking up in a hospital bed, she’s told that she’s recently been the victim of a hit-and-run at a pedestrian crossing, which has resulted in both legs being broken, which will result in six months of bed rest, though fortunately her pregnancy, five months in, managed to escape unscathed.

    Distraught at her situation, Emily takes comfort in the few things she can find, the love of her husband and family, and chocolate. Lots of chocolate. Over the next four months, Emily puts on a good deal more weight than she should due to the sugary treats. This continues even after the birth. By the time Emily is able to walk again, her weight has grown from ~140 pounds before her pregnancy to almost 200 pounds. Fortunately, her husband is on hand to comfort her.

    Alternative ending
    After a few months, Emily has lost almost 25 pounds, thanks to a rigorous programme, but this goes to pot when she finds her husband has been cheating on her. Divorcing him, she returns to comfort eating, gaining back some 10 pounds in two months, despite her exercise. Eventually she meets and befriends another man, Josh, and eventually marries him. Josh turns out to be a chubby-chaser, and Emily never sees south of 200 pounds again in her life, though Josh is so affectionate, she doesn’t care.

    Return of the Fat Man

    This story is set in the future.

    Gene editing allows parents to have the undesirable genes in the embryos of their unborn children edited out. This means that there have been no fat people for hundreds of years. People don't understand the meanings of words such as "fat", "overweight" or "obesity" anymore.

    A group of children in their late teens are doing a project on local government in the early 21st Century. They search through City Council archives, local newspapers and online material from the era. One of them notices an unusual man, who turns up in many of the photos. He's big and round. One boy asks, "What's happened to him? Has he been blown up with a tyre pump or something?" A knowledgeable girl explains that he's fat and that it means that his body has stored a lot of adipose tissue. She explains that obesity is now gene edited out of embryos even without parental consent.

    One of the boys is obsessed with the photos of the fat man. He finds him sexually attractive and wants to be like him. After much research he finds that he is legally entitle to have his gene editing reversed, so that he can be his natural self. He finds that his natural genes would have made him a fat man. He has the procedure reverse and starts to put on weight. He eats, in order to put on as much weight as possible. He soon weighs 400 lb and continues to grow.

    As there have been no fat people for hundreds of years, people have no prejudices against fat people. In fact, it's quite the opposite and every one wants the fat boy to be their friend. He receives invitations to all of the parties and other events. Soon, he's a celebrity and is giving TV interviews.

    Around the world, he becomes a symbol of "genetic liberation". People all over the world have their gene editing reversed. Many of them become fat naturally. Others start gaining deliberately just to be like Fat Boy. It becomes fashionable to weigh 400 lb or 500 lb.

    PROTEÇÃO Á TESTEMUNHA
    FIT TO FAT
    CASA TOTALMENTE AUTOMATIZADA
    JOGO DE MUDANÇA DE APARÊNCIA
    APOSTA
    VIAGEM ERRADA OU TROCADA OU CONFUNDIDA
    CONCURSO
    GAROTA CONHECE CARA GORDO E SE APAIXONA POR ELE MAS TEM QUE ENGORDAR
    INVESTIGAÇÃO DISFARÇADA

    A man is abducted by aliens one blustery night in Indiana. He is transported to their spaceship. After performing the usual (!) tests, the aliens connect their human specimen to a special machine. They are conducting experiments about the nature of human obesity, since they themselves never become fat and are intrigued by this unusual human characteristic. The machine is designed to make the specimen put on massive amounts of weight, even without consuming food. The rate of weight gain is approximately 20 pounds per hour or one pound every three minutes. As a result, after a 24-hour period, the once normal-sized man has gained 480 pounds and now weighs well over 600. He is conscious during the entire weight gain procedure and can feel his body expanding and growing heavier, little by little. He can read his current weight from a digital display mounted nearby and is both fascinated and repelled by the steadily increasing numbers. From time to time, an apparently female alien checks on his progress, poking and prodding his fat with her long slender fingers. Occasionally she rubs the growing mountain of soft fat that is now his belly and moans softly. She smiles and says something in a language the man does not understand.

    (to be continued - perhaps - unless the aliens take me first!)

    Do I detect a hint that the man might want this to be happening but won't admit it even to himself?

    Yes, that's entirely possible. It's also possible that the writer of this little paragraph would want something similar to happen to him too. :rolleyes: Fantasies are a writer's best friend!

    I have fantasies about being force fed and kick and screaming, "No, stop! I don't want to be a fat man!" but really I do want it to be happening. I want to be the boy being force fed in the below WD drawing. Perhaps I should write a story about this.

    And that gives me a rather nice story idea. I think that it will suffice if I just give it a title:-

    I WAS WARREN DAVIS'S MODEL
