Plot Summary

Sent on a weekend team-building retreat by Storm (though the idea was initially Rogue's), the X-Men and three members of X-Force encountered a mutant who is able to swap people's genders, as well as hir own. Paul LaRue, a desk clerk at Camp Wannachuck, had aspirations of becoming a criminal mastermind. After ze witnessed some of the team foiling a jewelry store robbery (during a team-building scavenger hunt), Paul thought to raise ze's stature with the local criminal element by getting back at the team. Ze swapped everyone's genders at the retreat. Because ze wasn't particularly stealthy, Paul was caught almost immediately and after a 'discussion' with the outraged trio of Pietro, Angelo and Marie revealed that Paul couldn't undo their condition, they sent hir off to the police.

Surprisingly, team building did exist as everyone swapped clothing so they have something to wear. Some of those affected took things hard, initially refusing to come out of their rooms, while others reveled in the chance to experiment with life on the other side of the fence. For some others, things barely changed at all.

After a week, which culminated at Prom, the gender-affected reverted back to their proper bodies.

Trivia and Meta


Paul is referred to throughout as ze and hir because Paul is equally comfortable as male or female.

Paul is a projecting shapeshifter, not as commonly assumed, a reality warper. How this power was able to warp Logan's adamantium-covered bones is currently unknown.


Plotrunner: Sil

Remix was developed as a way to provide interaction opportunities without a lot of baggage. It is properly considered a crack plot because the driving force behind it was the joke.

The full title of Remix is "Man, I Feel Like (Dude Looks Like a Lady): Remix" because the plotrunner is incapable of having short titles.

Camp Wannachuck and Sunny Day are a direct rip-off from the camp and character of the same names in the Hercules episode "For Those Of You Just Joining Us".

Remixed PB's and Icons

There were a series of icons made especially for the plot. Several of the PB choices for the Remixed icons were chosen for reasons of out of game meta - typically celebrity gossip or actors who had worked with the 'original' PB for the character in some way.

Remixclarice.jpg Clarice's male face was David Bowie, her favorite singer. David Bowie is also one of Maureen's favorite singers.
RemixDoug.jpg Doug's female face was Abbie Cornish, the actress who costarred with Ryan Phillipe in Stop-Loss, and who is alleged to be the reason behind Ryan Phillipe's divorce from Reese Witherspoon.
RemixKurt.jpg Kurt's female face was Rebecca Romijin-Stamos, but specifically not using her role as Mystique in the X-Men films.

RemixAlex.gif Alex's female face was Rachel McAdams, who happens to be the current PB for Medusa Amaquelin.
