Chimeras

By Julie Steinbacher, first published in Escape Pod.

After a painful breakup that leaves you feeling incompetent, you opt for a chimera-transformative surgery that does exactly what the name implies: transforms you into a part-lion, part-goat, part-serpent creature. In a dystopian world that idealizes animal beauty over human beauty, you hope that the change will protect you from getting hurt again.
