This story is kind of an experiment. Using my mad Excel skillz, I created a set of worksheets that generate the outline of a story involving a variable number of characters experiencing randomly generated changes. The changes, their scale, and the twist overrides, as well as the names and physical attributes of the characters, are all completely at the mercy of the program. I then fleshed the skeleton of plot out with reactions and motivations. So it's a bit of a Frankenstein's monster of a story, but I really wanted to try out a tale in which the nature and extent of the transformations were totally unpredictable—even to me!
