Bodies Verse is my epic-length body-swap time-travel AU. Darcy and her family (the women of her maternal line) can travel in time and space by swapping bodies with important historical figures about to die before they do their important historical thing. Darcy swaps with Steve, and quite a few rules get broken. This starts a set of dominoes toppling that change the entire world, the entire galaxy, and the fabric of history itself.

There's been some confusion about order, understandable in a time travel fic, so I'm adding order lists in the series notes.
EDIT: Due to expanding Sandbox size, I've also added links to our cousin series.

The last work on this Series Page is the first work of the brand-new Bodies-Verse Director's Cut, now with smoother writing, fewer plot holes, more backstory and Extra Angst! Please subscribe to the Director's Cut series for all future Bodies-Verse goodness.
