6 people are deposited on an island.
The 1st night someone accidentally activates a barrier.
In the tv studio the producers quickly realise that they can't get anybody out or in but the automatic cameras' signals are still working. They decide to relabel the show as fiction.
Now which character do you wish to start with?

You look up and down the beach expecting something else to happen but the blue barrier stays how it is, unyielding and not allowing you to pass. You thought this was to good to be true when you were offered a free ticket into a popular new game show.
When you decide nothing else is going to happen you decide to head inland and look for a reasonable home to camp out in for the rest of the season. You also will be needing a water source.
As you are walking through the island you come to find out that it was bigger than you had previously thought and now you are stuck in the middle of a jungle.
Panic starts to set in, and you start to believe you won't survive for long, which may be true. Then you notice a lake sparkling in the sun rays that make it through the jungle leaves.
Your hopes seem to have improved a smidge, so you go to check it out hoping that it will be a reliable water source. When you get there though you discover a cave perfect for your needs. And it is even out of reach of the water enough you won't have to worry about it flooding.
Soon you have a little bed made up of leaves made along with a fire crackling away.
Your lips are drying out now you realize and so you go to the pond to get a drink. When you look at yourself you notice that a girl is looking back at you. You move your right hand and so does she. You reel away from the water and touch your chest. Still very much a man. When you return to the water though she is still there.
Should you drink from the Water? OR should you find a new source to drink from?

You decide that you are hallucinating from the lake of water so you cup your hands and plunge them into the cold clead water. You drink greedily from the clean water letting the cooling feel of the water soothe your hoarse throat. You finish drinking after about three more hand fulls. A buzz starts to fill your body and suddenly you feel sick to your stomach. Was it the water? Then you feel your organs rearranging themselves inside of you. You feel one or two more growing as well and that is followed by a pulling in your groin as you manhood is being taken. Then you feel a warm tingle in your chest as two orbs grow outwards.
You realize in horror now that you are a girl! The last few touches come now as you hips grow in size and your waist slims out giving you some nice curves. Your fingers, arms and legs become more feminine, and you face transformas into a beautiful face angled in just the right way.
You feel like you're going to faint, but should you fight it or let it come?

You try to fight it. The last thing you need is to pass out and be eaten by some animal... not that that's the worst thing you imagine can happen. You feel faint as the transformation seems to have drained a lot of your energy. You are still not sure what had happened but you instinctively push a hand down your throat, causing you to gag and bend over, barfing some of the water out of you.
"ugh..." you still feel a light lightheaded, perhaps even more so as you feel like you have a migraine. Your thirst is replaced by a weariness and tiredness which you don't think is normal. Having little time to process this you take out your canteen, taking deep breaths as you bite your tongue. You don't have time to process this! You fill the canteen with water, maybe it will reverse your gender again, but honestly you don't want to go through the ordeal again.
"Hello?" you ask, remembering that this is all part of the show, right? You are being filmed are you not? It all makes sense now! Did they drug the water to cause you to hallucinate in order to boost popularity, views and reviews? You feel angry at this.
"This isn't funny! This isn't in the contract!!!" you declare angrily. Sure surviving and foraging are all part of the plan, but changing your gender and or drinking poisoned or drugged water!? What are the producers thinking!?!?!? You angrily bit your lip as you ponder your options. Do you decide to drink from the water again or not?
Written by Luksinatriks on 02 December 2017
Better not risk it! You decide, god knows what they have put in this water and maybe your even lucky your only hallucinating this. Still... it did quench your thirst somewhat so you decide to bring the canteen in the case you don't find any other source of water. Despite yourself you see that it is fairly late and you decide to make a makeshift shelter here. With great effort you manage to gather some leaves and sticks and with little luck you find a hollow tree which you decorate and enhance to be a rather good shelter.
"ah." You meekly exhale as you put down your equipment. You still do not know how to feel about this. On one hand you are pretty confident that your drugged and that the producers are messing with you but you are stuck here... just they wait until you get a lawyer! On the other hand that woman you saw was rather beautiful, do you really look like her? Are you her? Do you want to be her? Such questions protrude your mind as your tired head feels heavy, your eyelids lowering themselves as you drift off to sleep at the first day.

"BZZZZZzzzz!" you are snapped awake by a rather loud noise as you feel the earth tremble beneath you. An earthquake? You don't know was this in the contract or was it just a natural occurrence? Maybe you are still under the effect of whatever it is that was in the water you drank! Going out of your shelter as the tremors stop you are reassured that it is indeed still night time but you gasp.
"What in the?" you ask as you see that the nights sky is... well, blocked. Like your in some sort of a dome and while you are confident that whatever this dome... light... thing... is you don't think it bodes well for you. This is starting to feel more and more real for you and you want to get out of this freak show! You came here to survive but so far you had your gender switched by that blasted water and now you....
"Crap!" you curse as you see that the barrier extends all the way across the isle, not that you have a very good view from this point but you can see it curve and have a bit of an angle. Are they making sure that you don't leave this isle? What do you do?
Written by Luksinatriks on 17 December 2017
You decide to continue your sleep. If this is indeed the consequence of some drug you will most likely digest it by morning, you think and if all of this is real... well... your in no state to make sound rational decisions.
You go back to your shelter and try to cudle against the bare, dead tree, looking for warmth in this damp place. What have you gotten yourself into!?
Written by Luksinatriks on 22 December 2017
"Um... hello? Hello!" You shift as you faintly hear someone speak. Your eyes begin opening and widening as you feel the usual morning blues. You see a rather young man standing above you, just outside your shelter. He looks decent enough even if it is evident he didn't have a chance to shave and bathe for a day. Then it hits you! You start recalling the events of last night. You immediately get up, nearly hitting yourself on the head as the man raises his arms defensively. "Woah there woah! I mean you no harm!" he says and you look at him as you get up. You don't know what to say as you touch your breasts, you are indeed still a woman. The man for his part seems mildly uncomfortable. "Um... My name is Marcus." He begins. "Pleased to meet you. I was told there would be others here, but no one told me anything about that thing up there." He speaks trying to break the awkwardness.
"So Im not mad?" you ask him and he blinks at you. "Im not the only one who sees something fishy about all of this?" you ask him but then you realize. "The name is Quinn by the way, pleased to meet you Marcus." You say politely.
"Yeah... the tremors last night... coupled with the fact that I didn't see ANY cameras..." he says and then there is a pause. "I am lucky to have found you though. Im dying of thirst myself and you have found yourself a nice little lake here." He says and turns towards the lake. Do you tell him about what has transpired to you last night or not?
Written by Luksinatriks on 25 December 2017
You think about how to approach the subject as you see Marcus go towards the lake, kneeling down and then you instinctively speak.
"Don't drink the water!" you call out loudly and he snaps, turning towards you. "Its... poisoned." You say, not knowing how to approach the subject.
"Pardon?" he asks, confused.
"Last night..." you begin slowly. He wont think your crazy, some odd things happened here and he could see it!!! "I came here I was thirsty myself... I saw the pond and... well, in it is a reflection of myself... as a woman." You tell him and there is a moment of silence.
"..." he looks at you oddly, wanting more explanation as you continue.
"I was a MAN when I came here!" you declare and continue before allowing him much time to dwell on things. "I saw myself like this" you point out. "And I was too thirsty to care. I drank the water and... and I..." you waver but continue. "I transformed... rather harshly... my head hurt and everything was spinning but at the end of it I looked like this!" you point out and his eyes go wide
"I believe you..." he says but ponders on it. "Still I am thirsty and we don't know where we can find another source of water... should I drink it and risk it?" he asks you looking for advice. You stop for a moment to think about his words.
Written by Luksinatriks on 28 December 2017
"True true... perhaps something even worse can happen to me. You got off with only having your gender and body changed." Marcus says and nods. "We need to find the others and get our heads together... I mean if I recall there were six or seven of us..." he says and you contemplate his words.
"yeah..." you slowly say and think of your surroundings. Then it hits you, the summit! "Well... our best chance to meet someone is to go to the summit... Im sure the rest are either there or will go there soon enough... if nothing else we can get a good view of the entire island and decide what to do next.
"Great idea Quinn!" he says cheerfully as he gathers his things. You destroy and unpack what you can from your makeshift shelter, scavenging it for what little supplies you can. You two are ready to start your journey to the summit when Marcus looks at you.
"What?" you ask him impatiently.
"Quinn, do you want to try drinking the water again to see if it will change your gender back?" he asks your curiously. "not that I advise it! Who knows what this water can do and if it's the only thing on this isle that can do such things... but its our only way to find out." He says honestly and you contemplate his question. Do you:

"Well..." here goes! You say as you gulp down the water. Marcus stares at you as you drink greedily from your canteen. You swallow the last of the water and clean yourself as you wait for any effect to take form. A good couple of seconds past and Marcus speaks.
"And? Do you feel any different?" he asks you and you look down at your feminine body and breasts. You don't feel any different at all... and from the look on Marcus face you don't even look one bit different then you were this morning when you woke up.
"ah..." you exhale and feel disappointed. "It didn't work... did it?" you ask and Marcus sadly swings his head as a form of negation. "Well... we cant tarry for much more..." you say as you go and refill your canteen, after all if the water doesn't do anything else to you it should be safe to drink... right?
"Alright, lets go!" Marcus says as you two head for the summit of the isle, with you left to ponder on your predicament, thinking of what to do and how to accept this new body of yours .

"Are you sure we are not lost?" you ask Marcus as the two of you trek through the ever thickening forest of tropical trees, the palms growing too close for your comfort as you hack the leaves and bushes, making your way towards the summit.
"Im positive." He reassures you as you see that you are indeed going upwards, if nothing else. You sigh with relaxation as you realize that the forest is clearing and giving away to the stony center of the isle after a few hours of trekking. "See?" he asks reassuringly. You are indeed glad that you are here with him.
"Yes..." you respond dryly as you proceed steeply upwards, the stones being a bit harder to transverse the overgrown stones, the grass and flora covering it making it wet and slippery as you proceed upwards.
"Do you hear that?" Marcus asks you as he puts a hand in front of you, stopping you dead in your tracks. You perk your ears up, scanning the area and focusing on the sounds. Then you catch a feint sound of someone talking.
"We are on a right track!" you proclaim as you and Marcus continue your climb up, reaching the summit rapidly. You climb and you climb, trying to discern the voices you hear as you reach the top.
"Im telling you Jen! We cant risk staying here! We must find a way out!" You hear someone say rather loudly as you and Marcus reach the top, hitting cover behind the rocks as you observe the conversation in front of you.
Written by Luksinatriks on 17 January 2018
"4 of them..." Marcus whispers to you as you try to recall the exact details of the contract.
"With us that's 6... someone is missing." You whisper back as you examine the people. There are two women, standing close by, indicating that they are some sort of a team or that they are at least comfortable with each other. There is a rather tall and buff man standing peacefully on one side of the summit and on the opposite side of the three kneels a woman, behind her a console of some sorts. Even from this distance you can see that the woman is bleeding from her hand which she holds with her other hand.
"We cant just leave her like this!" One of the women protests, Jen, if you remember correctly as the two women bicker and argue.
"For all we know she is the one who has caused this barrier... thing to activate." The other woman who is blond responds. "Look, we have not encountered a crew member nor a single camera on this isle so far... for all we know this could be a hoax of some sorts!" the blond woman explains.
"Which is EXACTLY why we should help her! It isn't right to leave her like that!" Jen protests and the other woman sighs and rolls her eyes. Marcus turns towards you and whispers.
"Im coming out." He says, whispering. "we need to get to the bottom of this." He adds and you nod, they should know that this is no joke, not only has this barrier activated but your gender has changed. Still... is it wise to trust this people?

"Hello?" Marcus calls out as he gets up and past the rocks. Immediately everyone's attention shifted towards him. The two women turn around and the large man looks towards his direction. You sigh as you follow Marcus out of hiding.
"And the last of us come." The blond woman says, sighing herself as it is evident that they have a situation on their hands.
"There is still one more..." Jen says and Marcus swallows thinking of what to do next.
"We heard voices and we came here... may we ask what is going on?" he says and the two women look at each other, Jen deciding to speak first.
"I assume you see the large barrier up and above us... we, like yourself, came here in the hopes of finding other people. We found that woman there..." she says nodding towards the injured woman who either cant or isn't bothered enough to raise her head towards you. "She says her name is Sera and that she came here first last night..." she says and after a moment of pause she continues. "She says she tinkered with that console over there, thinking there is a way to contact the producers as no one has contacted us yet, the next thing she knew it exploded injuring her and creating this barrier..." Jen concludes and Marcus opens his mouth to speak but the blond woman cuts him of.
"And that's why I say we go around and actually FIND someone from the production who can fill us in!" the blond woman says. "Who knows maybe this was just a mistake and the barrier is a prop!" she adds as Marcus steps in.
"Im Marcus... and this is Quinn..." he begins carefully. "We don't know what is happening either, but do know that it is quite serious!" He declares and the blond woman looks at him, examining his words carefully.
"Im Evelyn... but everyone calls me Eve... and how would you know that this isn't some hoax that the producers are playing on us?" he asks and he opens his mouth to speak but he realizes that you're the one whos in question here. Marcus looks at you and you blush. Do you chose to tell them what happened?
Written by Luksinatriks on 24 January 2018
"I... I was a male... yesterday." You utter carefully and the two women are obviously shocked with their eyes wide open. There is a moment of silence as you realize that they expect you to elaborate on your story. "I came here... as the rest of you. I was a guy and the first night I... I found a lake... I drank from it and the next thing I know... I was a woman." You tell them and there is another moment of silence as the two women contemplate what you just said.
"I see..." Eve says as she turns to Jen. Jen for her part has her mouth slightly opened as she examines you.
"Oh... my... gosh!" Jen says suddenly. "Eve, she isn't wearing a bra and..." Jen says and the two look at each other in confusion. Do they believe you?
Written by Luksinatriks on 29 January 2018
"So... that... happened?" Eve said, trying to break the suspense. Things are immensely awkward between you.
"Shell we help that girl?" Marcus speaks, breaking the tension further as the women turn to face the kneeling woman. Jen looks at Eve and Eve sighs.
"I suppose so." Eve says and the four of you turn around and begin moving towards Sera. The tall man who has been observing you so far, also moves in.
"Marcus, Quinn." Marcus says introducing you to the tall man. The tall man nods.
"Ken." He says as you all approach Sera. She is bleeding from her left arm and leg and she is stiff. You are surprised to find that she is still alive. Marcus calls out to her but she doesn't respond. You press your hand against her forehead and use your other hand to touch her limbs. Her limbs are as cold as stone but her forehead is hot.
"She has a fever!" you declare and everyone bundles together. Ken and Marcus start pulling out some of the bandages they have thankfully brought with them. You and the two other women pull Sera down and lay her on her back as you take the bandages, pressing them against the injured parts, pulling out the bits of shrapnel. By sheer luck they missed any major arteries as you patch her up, thankfully it seems that all of you came prepared.
"Does anyone have a bedroll?" you ask and everyone looks at each other as Jen and Eve speak to each other in hushed tones. Eve goes to her backpack and Jen helps her to get a bedroll out. With great effort you put the unconscious Sera in it as her wounds are tendered to, placing a cold, wet rag on her head, cooling it off while her cold limbs are heated.
"I think she's stable." Ken says after you finish with Sera. There is a moment of silence between all of you as Ken speaks once more. "I know a bit about medicine and electronics myself.... Does anyone here know about computers?" He asks and you all start speaking about your proficiencies but in the end you all decide to go towards the console.
"It is fried..." You say as you see the exposed wiring on the rather large and bulky piece of electronics that is literally inside a large stone. The wires crack with electric power. Do you investigate it or not?
Written by Luksinatriks on 04 February 2018
"Alright..." Marcus says. "I do not know WHAT she did or pressed, but to cause such an overload and a literal explosion." He says as all of you observe the ramshackle device. It looks like it WAS sturdy enough but the monitor is dead.
"I think that these cables are transmitting something..." Ken says, taking a peek inside the machine. "What I am not sure... but I doubt it's the barrier as the thing is fried..." he says
"Whatever it did... Im certain it doesn't do any longer. But where does the electricity come from? I haven't seen any power source." You say and the two women next to you comment.
"I think we can all agree that this thing is most likely responsible for the barrier... how no one of us knows but if we can alter or fix this thing... maybe the barrier goes down?" Jen asks but Eve is quick to point otherwise.
"Yes! But no one of us understands what this thing is or what it does! I mean for all we know we can make it even worse!" she declares. You ponder on the debate. Do you try to interact with the thing or not.
Written by Luksinatriks on 12 February 2018
You try to interact and fix the thing
"Well... since Im pretty sure this isn't just the producer playing a hoax on us." You say, being the most sure amongst them that this isn't some sort of a prank, since you did get your gender changed. "I admit that we can potentially fuck this up even worse... but I fear that since we cant trust the producers and we haven't seen a hint of their presence here... we must do this or risk being stranded." You conclude. Eve blinks as the realization hits her.
"No... even if it is true that the producers tricked us and just dumped us here... leaving us with no other humans or ways out..." she speaks, clearly frightened. "They do realize that our families would know we are missing right?" she speaks.
"I only have a sister... she knows Im here but we don't hear from each other often." Ken admits.
"Im a widower, only child." Marcus confirms.
"Well I don't know about you but I have 3 siblings and when they find out!" Eve says angrily as Ken and Marcus approach the device, trying to figure out where the wires go and reattach them. "They all KNOW Im here and-" Eve continues but you cut her off.
"Even if they do and this is all somehow broadcasted and they find out immediately... I doubt they would be able to fight the corporation to get us off the isle immediately... besides you know how they are about these contracts." You say dryly as you hear Marcus yelp behind you.
"Damn it!" he says swinging his hand with pain.
"There is a power source... it leads directly into the ground and it is reinforced by metal... without advanced tools I doubt we will get anywhere." Ken says calmly.
"We'll keep working on it." Marcus says bitterly. The question is, what now? Your still a man down and you need to either find or create shelter.
