of the changeling has been a popular one for many years, this time period being no exception, and is most likely the source of this poem; “In actuality even more than in fiction, changelings- that is, children perceived as abnormal surreptitiously substituted for normal ones- were very much a part of the Victorian world.” (Silver 59) In the myth of the changeling, “normal” human children were often replaced by decoys that acted strangely, despite looking similar to the original child. Although this myth does not necessarily involve harm coming to the human child, it is usually a grave indicator that the child will never re-join their actual family, nor remember them—“As soon as a mortal being eats of the fairy food, that mortal can no longer return to the human world.” (Heininge 104) Obviously this would be a great source of fear and stress for any believers who may find themselves susceptible.
While this myth seems to be very popular, it is just that- a myth. “For Victorians, on some level at least, the changeling phenomenon was a mysterious and frightening occurrence that could, if successfully probed, provide explanations for sudden death or disappearance, mysterious illness, and eccentric and bizarre behavior.” (Silver 60) This means that people who were deemed “unnatural” were often labeled as changelings- despite the reality that many were simply disabled, free-thinkers, or simply people who did not tend to follow the norm at the time. The myth of the changeling…

There were 3 main lessons taught in ‘Changeling. One was that everything is not what it seems.

The second lesson learned in the book is that everyone should be given a chance to be themselves. On Luca and Isolde’s second trip, they encountered a small village. Within the village they had captured what…

Into his dungarees—the rough material
Molding me into boy shape; hide
My long hair under an army helmet
He’d been given by father, and emerge
Transformed into the legendary Che

" Cyborg said walking into the common room.
"Wait, a freaking a minute!” Wonder Girl screamed. “Can somebody please tell me what's going on!?"
"We captured our princess." Everybody turned to see Changeling with Oracle right next to him. “The one who's leading this dark army. Is that enough of an explanation for you wondergirl?"
