Shifting Changelings Lies and Truths 005 by moemneop Shifting Changelings Lies and Truths 005 by moemneop

Many of you may be thinking, "Oh, another Derpy is a Changling story."
To be honest just about any pony could work for his story. Derpy works
best because she has a child (at least in head canon she does). If
anything this story is about 'what happens next'. Some Pony=Changling
stories has the Pony/Changling disposing Chrysalis and becoming the new
Queen of the Changlings. That is not what this story is about. This
story is about how Derpy broke away from Queen Chrysalis, things about
the Changling race and society that aren't explored much, and how the
'Major Players' (Celestia, Chrysalis, and Luna) react to Derpy when
they find out she's the Changling, and how Derpy tries to survive
through it all.

:iconmoemneop::
I hope the style isn't too different this time. Some of you might remember that
I published this page (without Derpy) some months ago as teaser page.

I'm not sure if I would call it head-canon, it's just canon for this story. Kind of 'what if...' ;)

Hopefully Luna's intelligent enough to realize that the changelings wouldn't be having a nightmare about changelings if she was a servant of Chrysalis and wouldn't be having nightmares about them threatening her family.

And? The hive is an enemy to this changeling. The hive is an enemy to real ponies. Does the difference really matter to you?

'My enemies enemy is my friend'? Not if it might be a hidden Changeling infiltration :/

One of your citizens, and you have no idea who and no practical way to find out, has the same relationship with the hive as everypony else. It's just not actionable information.

I'm sure the Princesses could find a 'magical way' to somehow force-revert a Changling inside their kingdom or a massive magical barrier to keep them out for good. . .but they haven't.

If this is the English version, why is the second panel in German?

I updated this page a few days ago, I guess I chose the wrong language for that panel then... I'll fix it immediately, thanks for the hint ;)

Well, no pony will throw you out for being a changeling if you never show them your true form ;)
...maybe they did after that episode :P

"Many of you may be thinking, 'Oh, another Derpy is a Changling story'" 

Uh... I know of exactly one such story with Derpy as the changeling. Derplicity, by Skywriter.

And that's all of them. :bucktooth: 

So... By all means, do go ahead, you're treading into mostly uncharted territory here! :aww: 


...Also, I can see how it would make sense with the eyes -- changelings don't exactly have pupils, so the "wonky eyes" would be a slightly faulty illusion as part of the disguise. ;)

There are two or three references(fanart) of Derpy=Changling. Two fanfics that I know of. That's five mentions of the idea. To me, as a writer, that is 'too many for an original plot idea.'(High standards, I know) While I wanted to do this story, I also know I had to make sure it was not influenced by other references too much. Part of writing a good fanfic(or fancomic) and dealing with 'overdone plots' is make the overdone plot not look like one.

I'll explain in story why her eyes are like that.

"I'll explain in story why her eyes are like that."

I'm guessing regular Changelings don't have eye-pupils, so... her "wonky eyes" are just part of the illusion, she's just not good at that part? =P

On Changeling eyes, I'm thinking they might like this in their natural state-
