Is "bodysharing" (like what happens in the SGA episode when Cadman gets trapped in Rodney's body) a seperate trope, or should this be added here?--RatCreature 21:06, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

It seems related to me, if not exactly the same thing. I don't know if I've run across any examples of this in fanfiction, though--does it exist as a fic trope? If not, maybe it should be a separate entry.--Sinead 21:58, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
I know I've seen it several times, I believe across different fandoms, but the only one I can remember offhand is an SGA story (predating the canonical ep), Double Occupancy, by Isis. --Arduinna 22:21, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
There's also Neighboring Solitudes by mmmchelle. --Sherrold 01:05, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
oops, the mmmchelle story is in a protected entry. --Sinead 04:16, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Also, maybe this should be changed from "a genre of fanfiction" to "a plot device". I mean it happens a lot in canon. There is the Red Dwarf episode with the title Bodyswap, the Buffy ep when Buffy and Faith switched, an Angel episode, the Farscape episode Out of Their Minds, I'm fairly sure it happened in SG-1 at least once or twice, there is an X-Files episode too, iirc,...--RatCreature 23:08, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Many more canonical examples are listed at the TVTropes article, too -- I've edited this article a little to make it clear that it happens both in canon and fanfic.--Ari 23:13, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

I trimmed the word "Body" which was left following the last sentence about bandom--Sherrold, did you have another thought you meant to add to that? Come back! --Sinead 04:20, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
