I’m totally up for this. Noah finding himself in AJ’s shorter, but massive body, bumping in to things because he doesn’t realise how wide he is. Being so turned on by himself all the time. And AJ finally seeing himself from a different perspective, a bit of self worship. I wonder if he’d let Noah top him in his old body?

i understand it’s a complete shift, but the story has concluded. This would be more like fan fiction, but from the original author. And as long as you gave a bit of a warning I can’t see people being upset. Probably a good idea to post it on a new thread though, just to highlight the difference. You could post something on here to let people know when it goes up.

Your writing is about what you want to write. It’s not like we’re paying you for it (yet).

I have the same reservations about fantasy.  Magic potions and comet dust can't beat the reality of tons of iron lifted to build realistic muscle.  But I fully understand that other people will feel differently.  There is no right or wrong, but for me the fantasy approach could be a disappointment.

Perhaps another way to explore Noah's or AJ's thoughts would be if one of them kept a diary or journal?  It "feels" less likely that AJ would be the one to do that, but if he did that would surprise us in a way that could open some insights into his personality.  Also, that "diary style" would impose some parameters that could be interesting from the writer's standpoint.  Unless you feel that the original story already has enough introspection.

muscleaddict, I think it is WONDERFUL that you might want to do more with these two fine and endearing characters.  And I do appreciate your dilemma of what direction to take.

Thanks for your thoughts and comments on this, guys! Fan fiction written from the author would be a pretty good way of describing it! If I did do it I would definitely make it clear of what is was and how it differs from the original. Hmmm. Maybe I should just go ahead and write that sequel instead. I'm definitely not short of ideas for it! 😁

Hey Mate! I’m up for it! If you’re in doubt about it you still could write it, but change the characters names. 

As for the sequel, I would love to read it too. I miss those two mates. 💪😜😜

Well I'm not really into fantasy stories of muscle growth as much or the old switcheroo kind of thing with body switches, but there are some that are. 

I'm much more about reading stories with fictional characters that feel real human emotions. Stories like AJ and Noah are the ones I love to read.

I'm all for reading an AJ and Noah sequel though for sure! There's alot more to explore with these two characters and I believe seeing how they grow and mature in their relationship would be a great thing to see.

This is definitely the most emotionally powerful story I've read on this site. 10/10. I used to read a LOT of soppy romance novels (before I discovered gay muscle forums) and honestly this was better than 95% of them.

So I've had an idea that I'd love to run past those of you who enjoyed this story. I'm in two minds about doing this so I'd love to get some thoughts and opinions! What if I were to write and post a short story as if it were written by Noah? So it would be like a story within a story. The idea I've had is that AJ and Noah switch bodies so obviously it would have a very different feel/tone to the original story! It would be moving away from the realistic stuff and going more into fantasy based, which I appreciate might not be to everyone's taste! It would be quite quirky, but hopefully have a fun feel and there'd be scope for some comedy moments.

My biggest reservation is, because there's obviously a lot of love for the original story and this would be a different vibe, I wouldn't want to do anything to sort of tarnish that (even though it would be Noah's fictional/fantasy version of the characters). 

I originally posted this about not being into the body switch thing and such, but another idea came to me.

You could write the story starting from Noah's point of view, showing him at a desk, writing at his laptop, or maybe even in a paper journal. He  is shown to be about mid 40s possibly maybe even early 50. As for his body, you can decide how his body looks here.

Noah talks about where he is in his present life, and talks about how he got to where he is today, by going back onto his past and telling us what his life was like leading up to the present. And there would be times he would narrate during the progression of the story, at certain key points within it.

And at the end of the story, AJ is revealed, still looking pretty damn good in his mid 40s or 50s as well

And , I even have two titles for the story thought up. All you guys can vote on this, which you would like better.

1. AJ and Noah: The Continuing Story

Or

2. The Autobiography Of Noah Cook

 

What do you think? This is still MuscleAddict's to be written whatever way he wants, but I thought I'd throw a few suggestions out there.

@Shawn1978 - I love that you're coming up with your own ideas for a sequel! 😊 I think it would definitely be interesting to see what the lads would be like in their 30's/40's (though that would obviously mean setting the story in the future)! And if they'd still be together. And how far AJ would have gotten with his bodybuilding (a pro bodybuilder known worldwide and competing in some of the biggest shows in the IFBB or just an amateur bodbyuilder who competes once a year, while also juggling a fairly ordinary 9-5 day job)?

My own idea is something a bit simpler, and would be set the following summer after the first story (i.e. the summer of this year), with Noah having graduated from uni and moving back to Little Denton, with the big question of what happens next? I think I'd have it told from AJ's point of view too, rather than Noah's for a fresh perspective! So it very much be a glimpse into the world of a young bodybuilder who's in love with a boy, which none of his friends and family know about, and who might not necessarily be sticking around! 😁
