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 🙂

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 🙂

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  • Thirty-seven years married when your spouse suddenly becomes withdrawn, cold, another person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

    • 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 🙂
