A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Sunday Writing Prompt, May 30/21 – Shape-shifter

Disney’s MOANA: He was a Demigod of Wind and Sea. He was a warrior, a trickster. A shape-shifter who could change form, with the power of his magical fish hook.” If you haven’t seen it, you should. It’s a fantastic movie! …my three-year-old forces us to watch it at least twice a day ๐Ÿ™‚

Definitions of Shape-shifter: A person or being with the ability to change their physical form at will.” “One that seems able to change form or identity at will; especially a mythical figure that can assume different forms (as of animals).

Feel free to take that and run with it!! As a fan of Sci-fi and Fantasy, submissions to that regard will truly tickle my fancy ๐Ÿ™‚

In case you’d prefer something more realistic/relevant, a few suggestions came to mind:

  • Online dating: Expecting one thing, but receiving another
  • Thirty-seven years married when your spouse suddenly becomes withdrawn, cold, another person
  • Friendships destroyed by a shift in personality
  • Altering one’s own self to fit in
  • A doting mother by day, a promiscuous party-girl by night
  • A caterpillar transforming into a butterfly
  • Dare I suggest, a politician

      I enjoyed the direction you took with the haiku, and your picture was super creepy and cool!

    and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson can actually sing!

      I adore Dwayne Johnson! I love how he doesn’t take himself too seriously despite his amazing talent…and smoulder ๐Ÿ™‚ My little guy knows most of the words to his songs. I very much enjoyed your submission, and your choice of photo was fab!

        Thanks Sara. I must admit since I saw him in San Andreas he has grown on me and then Moana proved he could sing! haven’t got round to seeing the movie though.
        I’ve used the image before and have always liked it.

        I haven’t seen that movie, but I’ll check it out! I’ve seen him in many other things, and he keeps growing on me…handsome, funny, talented…seems like he’s actually a really nice person, which is the kicker for me. Arrogance is a huge turn-off

        It’s a good movie.

      Such a good job, Susan. I felt transported into your story…very much enjoyed the tribal/Native American take. Waneta is a new term for me, so thank you for that!

      • Susan St.Pierre
        May 31, 2021

        I looked the term up. I knew Native Americans must have terms for shape-shifters. Much appreciated!

        Haha! If I didn’t enjoy it, my life would be a living hell considering I have to watch it so frequently

      • Stephanie Colpron
        June 1, 2021

        I think having kids means watching the same thing over and over and over. Right now our eldest is on Paw Patrol. Definitely preferred when it was Kung Fu Panda ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

        Charlie, my three-year-old specifically says “No Panda!!” haha …Paw Patrol is unfortunately our daily

        Weโ€™re only allowing screen time on Sundays for 1hour (otherwise itโ€™s impossible to make him stop without a tantrum) so itโ€™s not daily thankfully ๐Ÿ˜….

      So much beauty in this tale. Powerful and important lessons throughout, and a surprising ending that has yet to be told, but should be! Excellent, Lorraine ๐Ÿ™‚
