"Hard enough to leave a spot of blood. Okay unnecessary because horror movie. The next time we see her. She's knelt down in front of her house with her head buried in the ground. Why what does fund is going on and dead. So she's dead lady yes o k. So she's not down dead with head buried in the ground. It's a horrible way to die. Yeah at mrs brady's funeral. Sarah learns that she had had a son as well that she believed had been an impostor she'd noticed more and more things off about him At this point. Sarah has begun to wonder about her own son because of little things that just don't add up suddenly like him befriending a boy that he'd previously stated that he despised after confirming for herself. He is not in fact her son by trying to play that game with him and he didn't seem to understand and confronting him with his knowledge. He attacks her literally throwing her around the kitchen. Minute okay and buries her head in the ground like he did with mrs brady okay. But because she had drugged his food prior to their confrontation he passes out right after he finishes burying her and she's able to get up and bring him back to the house and do something. I actually found really odd after everything that had just transpired so at this point. She knows he's not her son. Yeah and as we were able to again. Just toss her around the kitchen like she was nothing but she chooses to leave him unrestrained. Mind you on the floor of the basement wall. She brings over a mirror to reveal the truth as she learned earlier. Yeah why which was. Oh yeah he's just kind of left on the floor and she's demanding to know her son is but after receiving no answer from the creature. Sarah returns to the sinkhole in lets herself into after locking the changeling son in the basement. So at least you did that. Yeah after slithering through some tunnels. She comes upon a larger open area with a number of skeletons in the still living body of her own. Son chris oh of course. She is pursued by an unnerving number of featureless fleshy creatures. That are able to manipulate their appearance. As the one that catches her looks back at her with own face. After rescuing her real son. Sarah decides to burn down her house with the change links to locked in the basement. Because that's the only reasonable solution. Yeah of course. It seems to be the only solution that people keep trying to burnout the house so she moves on with her real son but was really sarah. Oh twist and last but certainly not least in the video game the witcher. Three there are creatures known as dopplers of their names being vexed. Ling's changeling yeah okay. These beings fully transform into whatever being they choose to become even emanating whatever aura the being would give off rather than a magical one due to some kind of smell so it's not just a surface level. They tend to be good natured. Avoid fights at all costs which is for the best for all involved as they can be quite dangerous if cornered okay. I read that they will also take on the strengths and abilities of whatever form they assume so fighting one would literally be like fighting against yourself. Oh thus in the case of girl it would be up to pure luck destiny to decide the outcome of that confrontation. Carol versus get.

"Well let's go ahead and see how it influenced pop culture. I'm interested in this. So changeling shape. Shifter's of all kinds have certainly manage to slip into all manner of pop culture over the decades. So let's go ahead and dive in starting with supernatural. of course yes. Let's dive into supernatural. In the second episode of the third season baby winchester's find themselves investigating a string of seemingly accidental. Deaths centered around one particular neighborhood. Mullen also in this episode. We get to see the cutest little mini dean that has ever existed in the form of eight year. Old boy. that dean can't help but think may actually be his all right. Wasn't his mom like a previous flame. That was why they'd return. And it was eight years prior but anyway the boys soon realized that within each home that has experienced the death of a father or some other person other than the mother that might pose a problem. There is a child Additionally sam originally notices what appears to be smears of blood on the window sills of these homes but dean realizes is actually red dirt when he finds that many dean has also been replaced. Oh okay many. Dean is named ben by the way in the episode. We also see one mother who happens to be friends. With ben's mom has noticed that her daughter is behaving strangely and even attempts to kill the child by leaving her buckled into the backseat while she rolls her car into a lake l. Wow and of course. The child stares at her through the back window like the entire time. Like this isn't going to work. And of course this does not work as the daughter is already back at home soaking wet and sat in the kitchen. Still awaiting her ice cream with this mother and at least one other. We also noticed a strange brown wound in the back of her neck. Where the changeling has been feeding on her. We also see the appearance of the changeling in mirrors with round mouths around with sharp teeth. Kind of like the little girl. Ghost and fatima phobia actually but like a smaller mouth as stated in the bestiary. The boys locate the mother changeling when they find the real children and save them. So they can incinerate her with a makeshift flame thrower and all of the changeling children. Also go up in flames and that is it for supernatural so next we also find change within the star wars universe with the two thousand two film attack of the clones as well as the first episode of the second season of the animated series clone. Wars attack of the clones. A changeling by the name of zam wessel is hired by jingo fat to assassinate pad mamola but fails in her mission and is pursued and captured by antiquated and wan and then herself assassinated by janko fat. So she's able to actually like completely shape. Shifter appearance unlike exam the changeling who makes her appearance in clone wars use her ability to change her parents to look like a jedi master rather than simply to look human so zams was just to not look weird. These creatures operate much like chameleons in that they change their appearance at will by touching the person or creature than to imitate. That's interesting yeah you see that. When the one in clone wars actually also switches appearance with a different jedi master Moving onto another show these little menaces of worm their way into. Let's see what they get up to in my little pony of all things watch. Yes changelings make an appearance in my little pony as kind of like hank wine insects. Okay straight out of the wikki.

"The human parents did all they could to prevent vary taking their child such as placing the iron trinkets around the baby's crib and the Child anyway than it was justification for the parent torture and torment the changeling baby. Oh my god. Sometimes parents wouldn't actually harm the changeling but instead threaten it to try to make the changing leave on its own accord. Some of the methods used to threatened but not harm the changeling would be threatened to skulls it with a hot poker or boil it in a soup. But there's still some hoping humanity is there though there's some stories of humans who wouldn't actually harm the changing and said they would care for the changing baby as if it were their own in fear that the didn't do so then the fairies would harm their real child or never bring them back so just treat it like a normal baby even though they knew it was a changeling reasonable whether it was a result of the work of satan or ferries the torture violence and abuse has been recorded in history with actual court cases of parents. Killing you're abusing their children when they suspected them of being a changeling. Oh my god. It was often thought to be justified. Because satan is evil evil and having this thing in their home would only bring out misfortune for the parents and for society. The ravenous appetites at the changing would have was a threat to their family. Because it's changing would literally eat them out of house and home. They wouldn't be able to provide for themselves any longer. And it was often thought that a-changing could bring about this misfortune for generations to come right justifications for torturing this child changing laura was often popular during pre industrial europe where within a family it was all hands on deck in terms of productive. Labor families were large at the children could help harvest or work in provide for the family. If any child was deformed unable to actually perform work it was a threat to the families. Wellbeing resources would be given to the child. But none was given back because the child was literally unable to do anything productive. When a child was unproductive it was easier for a parent to deal with its death or abandonment by believing that it was the act of the ferries that caused child to be this way and that was in fact not their child at all so this disassociation lead to infanticide justified infanticide. He s gross no parent in their right mind would allow their own child to die of course not of course and said they would harm a fairy shown because various are evil. Yeah the actions taken upon the changing would often not be left solely upon the parents many stories regarding changeling involve a shared responsibility with the human parent often consulting. Someone else about what they should do. The job They would say they suspect the child of being changeling and their neighbor or clergy member would say oh you must do yourself a changeling.

"In eighteen thirty. Five jacob grimm wrote in his book german mythology that new mothers must keep a constant wash over their newborn baby for at least three days if they were to sleep and they must have someone wash over their child if the mother fell asleep without putting someone else in charge of watching her baby. Then that's when the ferries would strike in exchange of ap with a changeling for the next six weeks. The mother will be required. Yogesh close watch on the baby but she was supposed to lay off hard labor so as not to leave the child alone an example would be when a mother would have to leave her child at home to fetch would than a ferry would come and steal the baby thus the mother was supposed to stay home and as a result should be able to recover from childbirth however. This precaution wasn't so much an emphasis on helping the mother instead. It was to protect the baby thus the family and society as a whole right. of course it's never for the hip. There is a story in fifteen eighty about a mother who was forced to work less than a week after she had given birth. A nobleman had a large crop of hay every summer and he expected the woman to work harvested literally a week after she gave birth and being that he was a nobleman and she was a peasant she couldn't refuse. She brought her newborn baby with her and place it on top of a small clump of grass. While she worked when she returned to nurse after a few hours time she noticed that the child was not hers. It was so ravenous in his hunger and it howled in a way. That wasn't human. She got the child for a few days hoping and praying that it was nana changeling however the child was so ill behaved. She couldn't stand it. He told the nobleman about this whole ordeal and he said woman. If you think that this is not your child and do this one thing take it out so the meadow where you left your previous shout and beat it hardware the switch then you'll witness a miracle she did is she was told and the child screamed so loud. The devil came in brought her back. Her child taking away his god. Okay so that's one legend as to why mother should be with their babies in the first six weeks of their life woman. Beat your child.

"Nothing with the thrive. Well i read that. They can only thrive in humans care. So that's another reason. Sometimes it thing wasn't a fairy baby at all but instead an elderly ferrier that was disguised as an infant in hopes that the senile ferry would be able to live out the rest of its life in the comfort and care of a human family. But does that then mean that. The child dies the fair. Guess because okay especially because they're not gonna order yet no changing. Don't live that long. Supposedly right sometimes varies would just leave a pile of sticks but enchant them. So the human would think it's the rabi here have some sticks when the baby will later quote die. Due to inability to thrive the parents would bury the baby never knowing their action. Just burying six which is kinda sad but it is but just picture burying a bundle of sticks and sobbing in somebody else in there the fucker they doing a fairy would purposefully take the most beautiful babies since their traits are what the fairies and mired in celtic lore it was said fairies would often take boys with fair hair. Blue eyes changelings would often have traits. That were not often found a normal human being such as extra toes missing limbs or even exhibits strange behavior such as incessant. Crying that was so high pitch. Humans couldn't bear the sound. So there's actually did someone a favor if they had an issue with those kinds of things like if a person was suspected of the baby being change thing is because they exhibited these things got yet so they would also exhibit ravenous hunger wants. A mother was empty of milk. The baby would cry and whine for more. Oh yeah they were also said to be imps and they would exhibit mischievous often disturbing their parents. Human babies are often thought to be joyful and pleasant but it changing baby would only show happiness or something bad happened to the family. The presence of the changeling would rid the family of any luck and fortune. Supposedly those who are unfortunate enough to have been given a changeling would often end up very poor and struggling for as long as a child was in their care sometimes. The change of the baby is subtle and it would take a keanae for the human parents to discover that the child in front of them is not in fact. There's sometimes it. Change is very apparent. Some more states at the changelings would often have a wisenberg is making them appear older than they actually are. We should make sense of changing. Was indeed that elderly ferry mentioned before sometimes they would have parchment like yellow skin or have a crooked back in lame hand mu within two weeks of being within the home the changing could grow a full set of teeth and have thin legs like a chicken or so. You have this newborn baby. Who's not supposed to have teeth. But within two weeks they have a full grown adult teeth. Like eating everything with their teeth.

Still Shaken from what just happened cormack couldn't help. But laugh nervously at the absurdity of the situation he sat down next to his wife and wrapped his arms around her. Seer Sha kissed her husband enthusiastically, but her mood instantly changed when she saw the state of their home, she leads to her feet and began to clean. I am so sorry I have no idea how this happened. Then she froze in place before frantically spinning in a circle. Is the baby where's our son? Just then their front door open and eva stepped through with a giggling four month old boy in her arms. Mix, jaw dropped as seer Charan to her son Eva, just smiled at them and said. This little trap was crawling around outside in the grass just thought I'd bring him home to you. Sere show was beside herself apologizing profusely for letting him out of her sight she gathered the baby into her arms and clutched him tight. Cormick rushed forward and pulled his wife into a long embrace. It's OK. Dear do not fret he is home again we are all safe. That is the only thing which matters. avo raised her eyebrows at the couple and then stated. Yes everyone is safe now, but four months is a long time to go without a name Cormack froze, and then burst into laughter. He lifted his son in the air making a show of eyeing him up and down. How about Aden since he is a boy born of fire series, pursed her lips and then nodded, yes, I like it. It feels right a clapped her hands together and cheered that will do it. Welcome to our world aiden.

But his Aden grew up every year on his name day he would find a four leaf clover sitting on his window windowsill a little bit of luck gifted to him by someone who's still cared. Changeling. Come more from general legend than a specific tale since their popularization in the sixteenth century, they were often thought of as a real danger in the world people genuinely believed that they had a sick or malformed child. It may have been a changeling for many years. The fair folk or fairies were thought to be demonic. So if people wanted to protect their babies, they would have to follow a strict set of guidelines. Some of these rules included baptizing the child making the sign of the cross over them and periodically sprinkling them with holy water. If changeling had already taken their child's place, they would have to get the creature to laugh or admit the truth through torture. This unfortunately, resulted in many cases of child abuse and infanticide according to folklorist de L. Schliemann court records between about eighteen fifty and nineteen hundred. Germany Scandinavia Great Britain and Ireland revealed numerous proceedings against defendants accused of torturing and murdering suspected change things as the legends grew with time the ways to protect against change Ling's changed with them. Ferries were viewed as more complex creatures. Some were good and some were evil just like humans. They were also believed to be creatures of nature which made them allergic to some unnatural forms of metal like iron people could protect their child by simply sliding an iron pin into their clothing. Most people nowadays, no longer believe in the land of the FE own in change Ling's science gives us plenty of explanations for sick or abnormal looking children but that doesn't mean we can't learn from the mistakes of our past. It is important to guard against dangerous ideologies after all. If humanity once allowed legends to convince them, it was okay to murder children who's to say it.

Cormack left his wife and son everything had been perfect Syria had still been tired from childbirth and the journey to their new home. But there baby was an angel and she had insisted they would get along fine while he was away at first. She had sent him letters every day telling him stories about how wonderful their son was and how much she loved sitting by the little pond in their backyard. But the letters slowly became less frequent and her handwriting sloppier Seer Sha never complained but cormack could tell that something was causing her pain. and. Then they had stopped coming all together. The first week without any news cormack had thought maybe something had gone wrong with the mail chain. But after two more weeks, he began to worry that something terrible had happened to his family. As he wrote up to their cabin, he could hear a baby crying inside the sound gave him a brief moment of comfort because it meant his son was still alive but drawing closer, he noticed a strange sort of electricity in the air causing the hair on his arms to stand on end. He slowed his horse to a trot and studied the area nothing seemed out of place except for a wicker basket sitting on the doorstep. Cormack And picked up the basket. It was full of food freshly baked bread and ripe fruit. He shrugged and carried it through the front door. The second he stepped inside he was struck with the most rancid smell. He had ever come across. It was worse than the battlefield like mildew rotting flesh. He covered his mouth trying not to vomit as he made his way through the dark and Dusky Room. The floor swarmed with aunts who were feasting on bits of breadcrumbs, corn husks, and rotting apple cores cormick stepped carefully around the writhing piles of filth following the sounds of the baby crying to their bed in the back corner of the room. What he found made his blood run cold. His wife was staring blankly at the ceiling. She was bone thin and sores had formed for her body. The baby lay plump and wailing by her side he looked healthy. But in a way that gave him chills the boy was the same size and shape as when cormack had left months ago cor mix voice shook as he spoke to the skeletal form of his wife. Seer Shah Seer Sha my love can you hear me to his relief she responded to his voice rolling slowly to face him encouraged he lifted the basket. I found this food on the porch at the mention of food. The baby grew instantly silent cormack furrowed his brow, set the basket down and lifted his son into his arms. sear Shas can voice was barely audible. He he never stops. He's always crying food quiets him for a moment, but there's never enough. Core arms trembled as he studied the baby's face, his son should have aged and yet he hadn't grown an inch in the last four months. Seer Sha slowly sat up in bed and took dinner roll from the basket instead of eating it herself she held it up to the baby's mouth. Cormack began to protest that the child was too young for adult food but then the boy gripped the role with his chubby little hands and gobbled the entire thing up cormick almost the baby out of shock but managed to keep his composure long enough to set the child on the bed. He slowly backed away mumbling an excuse about getting water for his horse. One safely, outside Cormick fell back against the door and slid to the ground gasping in the fresh air. He rested his forehead in his hands as he tried to wrap his mind around what he had just seen but his jumbled thoughts were interrupted by a familiar voice. Did you find the basket of Food A via asked? Cormack jumped to his feet ashamed of being seen in such a state. He stammered out a reply. that. Was You you left the basket the old woman pursed her lips together and nodded morosely. I have been leaving them every day. The other farmers in the area helped me provide the food we wanted to do more I tried to go inside and help, but your wife won't let us near her. Cormick took Abbas hand and shook it vigorously ingratitude. I am so sorry. I. Don't know what is going on here but thank you for helping. Then he broke into tears. A place to wrinkled hand on his shoulder and encouraged him to sit down then she began to tell him about the legends of change things and exactly what he needed to do to rescue his family from creature that was impersonating his son. Later that evening cormick resolutely walked back into his home in his arms were a dozen fresh eggs. Doubt. Tickled the back of Cormack mind but he pushed it aside Abbas theory was all he had. If her solution didn't work, he would have no idea what to do. Barely moved to acknowledge her husband but the baby turned towards him and began to cry even louder. Cormack ignored the whaling and lit a fire in the hearth that part of the task accomplished he focused on his eggs he carefully cracked each one splitting them in half. Then he took the half shells and filled each with water before gently arranging them in a semicircle around the fireplace while he worked, he did his best not to glance at his son dreading what he might see. Slowly the baby's cries faded away and the boy rose to a sitting position when cormack balanced the last of the eggshells in place, the infant began to laugh the creature blurted out in its croaky voice. Never in my eight hundred years of life, have I seen something as silly as this? The second cormack heard the changeling speak he clenched his jaw and charged towards the intruder. The creature tried to fix his mistake by laying back down and sobbing like an infant again but it was too late cormack grabbed it by the legs and through the changeling into the fire. Sparks flew through the air and the ferry glamour faded showing the creatures true visage. It was a grotesque Goblin. Just as a said, it would be the beast glared through the flames with yellow eyes and snarling teeth cormick shuttered in disgust and grabbed the iron poker in order to stab the monster before he could move any closer the goblins scurried up.

Of Times last night, Cormack guffawed again just making sure the pudgy little things were all there can never be too certain Syria elbowed cormick gently, and then felt a wave of nausea wash over her. She took a deep breath before asking how much farther the cabin would be cormack answered. Bits just over this hill, you are going to love it as they reached the top of the hill and began their descent sear shy gasped in wonder. Thick avera decent grass spread across the gently sloping hills on every side. Brilliantly colored wildflowers adored the land like jewels in Green Velvet, a small pond of water lilies glittered in the backyard. It's Beautiful Seer Sha exclaimed as they pulled up in front of their new home cormack leapt from his seat and turned to help his wife to the ground. He beamed with pride. As he said, when I saw I just knew it would be perfect for you. It was almost as if it was calling your name, the house needs some fixing up, but it shouldn't take long I'll have it all shiny and new before I have to leave. Seer Sha bit her lip for a moment. She had almost been able to forget that cormack was going to have to return to the war. She clutched her baby close to her chest and pressed her forehead against her husband's shoulder cormick wrapped her in his arms. They stood that way for a long time just soaking in each other's presence then they were interrupted by the voice of an old woman. G Our, which aren't you just the most adorable family I've ever seen. Cormack and seer show. Let go of each other and turned toward the voice. The old woman's eyes sparkled with wisdom but her clothing was strange.

Now back to the story. sear Shas new home in the Irish countryside was idyllic the perfect place to raise a child but she could not ever be fully relaxed. She found herself constantly torn between two emotional extremes. Her husband Cormack had left a month ago to fight in the war and she was terrified that he would die on the battlefield yet when she held her newborn son in her arms, she felt a level of peace and comfort would she had never before known existed. In an attempt to dull her fear, she wrote to Cormick every day telling him the smallest details about her life which was important since all she really had were small details nothing much happened in the Irish countryside she wrote of her afternoon walks around the pond saying. Is. Incredibly calming sometimes, I am so at ease that it's almost as if I can hear peaceful melodies floating on the breeze I'm sure it's just my mind playing tricks on me trying to fend off the boredom and loneliness from being without you another time she told him about how the air always smelled a violets and of how she had plenty of wild mushrooms to mix into her stews. No matter how many mushrooms I pick the next morning there's twice as many and they all grow in these odd little circles. For, the most part senior show was happy at least until the sun went down nighttime time was when she missed her husband, the most the dark air was filled with mysterious noises and one evening she could have sworn. She saw strange glowing lights flickering around above the pond. She had watched them silently afraid to make a sound but then her son had cooed causing her to turn away when she looked back, the lights were gone. It was at times like this that Seer Sha remembered the words of the strange old woman and wondered if they should have listened closer to her warnings. But Seer Sha didn't want a worry cormac she needed him to concentrate on staying alive. So she left these fears out of her letters and focused on the positives. There were so many positives to be found. That is until the night that everything changed. Bridget of the flame swayed side to side at the edge of her favourite pond all around her her face subjects were singing and dancing throughout the hills to celebrate the second new moon of the month the ferry moon. The Fairy Queen hadn't felt like dancing and had wanted to skip the festivities but her subjects had begged her to join them and she could not refuse them. Still her mind was troubled by her responsibilities as the goddess of childbirth that morning a fairy child had been born too weak to survive and had passed away within minutes. This was the tenth dead newborn in as many days and it was bridget's job to prevent it from happening again. As she danced she closed her eyes and let her mind wander to potential reasons for the deaths. Maybe. The mothers had been exposed to iron while pregnant. Maybe, there was a wicked spirit floating around unseen who was suffocating the baby's deep down bridget knew the real reason she just didn't want it to be true. These deaths happened because they're fairy blood lines were too pure. Bridget couldn't remember how long it had been since her clan had mixed with humans. She preferred her subjects avoid humanity as much as possible humans were brutal beings separating themselves from nature and the earth which fed them but the terrible reality was that without a of human blood to dilute their own, the faith folk could not survive. A tear fell down the queen's cheek as she imagined, commanding the delicate fe women of her clan to give their bodies over two savage human men in order to reproduce. It was a horrific thing to ask of them even for the survival of their species but then midway through this sickening reverie a strange sent tickled her nose she froze in place it was the smell of a newborn human child a cabin stood on the other side of pond for the past hundred or so years it had been abandoned. But on this night, a soft warm glow shone through the windows and the happy coups of an infant were coming from inside. Bridget's heart left. As she remembered, there was another way to save her people one, which would be less brutal to her subjects with rising anticipation she hurried around the pond and up to the cabin. squinting bridget peered through a window into the one room home inside a Pale human woman sat by the fireplace rocking a happy baby boy in her arms. Bridget bid her bottom lip to prevent herself from screaming with excitement. The child had a full shock of bright red hair to match her own flame colored head. He was everything she could have dreamed of in an adopted son with a flick of her long finger she called the Goblin to her side. The creature took a deep bow and croaked out your. Majesty how May I be of service bridget studied the Goblin carefully like most of his kind he was short yellow eyed and covered in warts. She said, I have an important job for you. How skilled are you at Glamour? The goblin grinned displaying multiple rows of razor sharp teeth. He promised her that glamour came to him as easily as breathing he boasted. I wanted I could convince the King I was you. Bridget narrowed her eyes and saw the GOBLIN shrink in fear realizing the danger in such a claim. She asked him how he felt about being a changeling for the next few years. The goblins Grin grew even wider. He jumped around and excitement. No work and all the food, I eat how soon can I start bridget wrinkled her nose this Goblin was overly enthusiastic and that attitude often lead to mistakes. Doing her best to keep her voice level she instructed him further. You must be cautious. The rules are clear if you are found out I will have to return the child. So don't stay too long if you get bored or greedy, you will get sloppy when it's time to leave just pretend to die and then return to us the Goblin nodded eagerly and wiped away the drool from his lips. In the early hours of morning, the fairy Queen and the Goblin slipped silently through the front door of the cabin. The mother lay sleeping heavily in her bed in the corner of the room. Still they had carefully applied a thick layer of glamour over themselves to stay invisible to the human eye but even unseen, they had to be wary of potential fairy traps to bridget surprise. There was nothing standing in their way no circles of salt along the walls or bundles of Saint John's wart over the mantle. Only obstacle was a pair of iron shears, but they were lying uselessly on a table not hung over the cradle like they should have been. The entire scene was quite confounding. Bridget glanced at the Goblin with a furrowed brow but he just strugged after one last diligent study of the room they stepped up to the cradle and peered inside. The GOBLIN gagged and disgust at the site of the baby he whispered. That's gross. Are you sure you want it? Bridget ignored him and lifted the little boy into her arms. The baby opened his bright blue eyes and smiled up at the Queen. She gazed deep into his eyes searching his soul for any sort of anchor which tied him to the human realm but she found none. He doesn't even have a name yet poor neglected thing. She kissed the baby on the forehead and assured him don't worry. I will watch over you and make certain grow up big and strong. The goblin rolled it's is, but he dutifully climbed into the cradle and focused his glamour to form the disguise his green skin faded and his wards spread out to form roles of baby fat his teeth shrunk and disappeared leaving only gums and his bald head sprouted tufts of soft red hair in mere seconds. The green mud-caked monster became the spitting image of the ANJELICA looking baby. The changeling grinned up at bridget and triumph but accidentally let out a belch rang throughout the cabin. The mother sat up and groggily brushed her hair out of her face to look around the room bridget hidden in the shadows clutching the baby to her chest. She glared at the changeling the Goblin flushed pink under her stare desperate to fix his mistake. He began to cry in the baby's voice the human woman stood and walked toward the crying. She leaned over the cradle, scooped the changeling into her arms and carried it back to her bed to nurse with the mother fully distracted bridget nodded at the Goblin and quickly left the cabin with her new son firmly clutched to her bosom.

"CR, ches, entire body felt like lead try. She might. She could not keep her eyes open her eyelids closed every few seconds causing her to see the world in short glimpses. One moment she was looking at the screaming baby in her arms the next everything was black. Then she was standing in front of the cradle setting the baby down inside then everything was. Black. She was planting a kiss on his forehead while he wailed on endlessly black walking to her bed black cramming her face into her pillow black even her dreams were tainted by the constant crying of her son he was three months old and the only time he stopped screaming was when he ate seer Sha couldn't even remember the last time the baby had slept. He never sleeps. How is that possible? She thought to herself as she continued to slip in and out of her dreams for a brief moment she felt piece but then panic race through her veins and her eyes snapped open the room had gone silent. There was no more crying. Her body was still so tired she could barely move, but she willed herself to turn her head towards the cradle what she saw made her blood run cold. The baby was standing up and staring back at her with glowing yellow eyes. Seer she decided she was still dreaming she watched as the baby shaped creature climbed from the cradle and then walked across the floor to her bed before pulling itself up by her side it grinned at her revealing multiple rows of pointed teeth lifted up her. And clamped down on her breast to nurse pain shot through her chest and tears welled up in her eyes. She wondered if this is a dream why does it hurt so much? I'm Vanessa Richardson.

This week were telling a story about change slings, nightmarish creatures of Legend which primarily originated in Ireland and Scotland. Coming up we'll dive into the birth of this legend.

One of the most traumatic things a person can experience is the loss of a child. So it stands to reason that legends and folktales would exist to explain how such a senseless thing could occur. This impulse plays a part in the origin of the changeling. There hundreds of stories about these creatures they originated primarily in Ireland and Scotland, but can also be found throughout the British isles in Great Britain and even in Germany and Scandinavia. This specific changeling story is pieced together from multiple accounts including the Smith and the ferries by J. F Campbell which was first published between eighteen, sixty and eighteen, sixty two in a four volume collection of tales and em leathers the folklore of hair furniture which was published in nineteen twelve. Despite the large number of changeling tales only a few varying storylines have been popularized and many of them center around the idea of ferries also known as the FE kidnapping a human baby and leaving a changeling in its place most stories feed on the fears of new mothers. In these versions, the changeling can appear as a ravenous Goblin. This creature demands too much food and is never happy making the mother feel inadequate. In other stories, the changeling is a sickly ferry baby who dies quickly often the human mother believes her own child has died. This version of changeling tail has historically been a comfort to grieving parents. If they believed in change lanes, they could believe that the baby they lost was a fairy imposter and not their own child. Their baby was still alive and being cared for even if it was in an entirely different realm. But. Even if versions of this Tale Provide Comfort the cornerstone of a changeling story is intrusion and to a new mother caring for a monster in the guise of her baby is nothing short.

"Back. It's hard to look at changeling abusers without passing judgment, even if these acts were committed because of a sincere belief in fairies, it doesn't excuse the violence that occurred to these parents, though the real horror was not the tortures that they enacted, but the idea that they had lost a child and had not even known it. Fears of Changeling is deeply tied to the fear of loss. Mother's were afraid that they could see the child live to the age of two or three, and then lose them to accidents, disease or the distance created by disability that they did not understand. Motherhood is a vital part of life, but it can also be deeply terrifying humans created these invisible antagonise as a way to cope with and explain the many tragedies that could befall a new parent. The child that was causing them emotional trauma was not even theirs to begin with. Perhaps our fear of changeling goes back to the old adage. Sometimes the ones we love are the ones that hurt us.

When she looked down at the baby beside her, and saw that his mouth was full of long yellow fangs, and shrieked in the knife in her hand, slipped the cold steel, sliced across her palm, spraying blood over the chopping block and felt sick, she turned away and took a deep breath when she looked back. Jones teeth had returned to normal though John Eight constantly, he never seemed to grow any bigger. If anything he was shrinking, he became more wrinkled and one with each passing day when she thought back to the baby she'd given birth to. She could hardly believe that this was the same child. Margaret suspected that her sister's baby was a changeling for some time now he gone from a happy healthy baby to a shriveled little thing who cried constantly, and could drink an entire pail of milk in twenty minutes. She had tried to bring up her fears with an but every time she did. Her sister changed the subject finally. She decided that if her sister wouldn't listen to reason, she would just have to prove it to her. Margaret knew that there were violent ways to get a changeling to reveal itself, but she hoped it would not come to that.

She laughed and asked what she was doing Margaret looked into the baby's eyes and said. Can't you see I'm making a pot of stew? The child giggled in thoroughly childlike manner while his mother gave her a look of confusion. And placed the baby into his cradle and left for work, no sooner had the door closed behind her then Margaret and inhuman cackle. She turned to the baby, and saw that in its place was a horrible wrinkled thing with skin, the color of an using wound it's smiled at her with its mouth, full of fangs, and said in a gravelly voice why I'm as old as the hills, but I've never seen soup cooked like that.

You can find them for free along with all the other podcast originals on spotify. The Myth of the changeling dates back to pre Christian Times. Most documented accounts come from the late Middle Ages a period that lasted from the thirteenth to sixteenth centuries. The details vary throughout Europe. But the basic elements of every changeling story remain the same. A human baby is stolen away when it's mother isn't looking and replaced with a ferry. The mother may not notice at first, but as time goes on, she becomes more and. And, more convinced that the child is not her own. Sometimes, the baby's replaced with a block of wood. While in other cases, the changeling eats constantly or never grows out of infancy. Often the fairies are wizened old goblins with the ability to change shape to most people. They appeared to be perfectly ordinary babies, but in time they show their true form, a sharp toothed Goule laying in the cradle that once contained a beloved child. Many.

It was an ever-present fear that was compounded if the baby was exhibiting symptoms that the parents could not understand..
