Okay

Fallout 4 AU where your dog was stolen instead of your baby.
No need to force the player into being married and a parent!
“Are you really gonna travel the entire commonwealth just to get your dog back?!”
“YOU BET YOUR SWEET BIPPY I AM!”

Does anyone else realize that the only reason Nyma convinced Lance to take off with her was that she threatened to go with Keith instead?

He knew better, but then she threatened to go with Keith instead.

She threatened to go with Keith instead.

Here I would like to present further evidence that doors are DnD groups worse enemy. I am part of a very large DnD group of nine people and we were heading to a tower to face down an evil oracle/former concubine who had stolen the queen’s baby except when we arrived at said tower the door was closed.

Bard: I look at the door

DM: Role perception 

Bard: 7

DM: The door is closed

Fighter : I kick it down!

Barbarian: yeh lets break it down!

Bard: Rogue go pick the lock

Rogue goes to try and open it with lock picks

Cleric: lets blast it open with magic!

Warlock: Brilliant I want to use shatter to try and break it.

DM: Have any of you tried knocking?

Whole group: ummmmmmm no?

Bard knocks at door and door immediately swings open causing rogue to fall flat on his face as he is still trying to open the lock.

Together

  • Well, if you need me, I’ll be in the bushes across the street stalking you.
Hawaiian Changeling Child

I have a character that I have changed from white to Native Hawaiian to have a POC lead but that has brought up with some issues with her backstory. The main one is that she has a twin brother who is a changeling. Reading your wonderful site I can see a couple of problems with this, white baby being made POC, Stolen POC babies (The biological twin does appear later and not forgotten about.)  and the main one of him being a security expert and fake breaks into places, like a legal type of thief. I want to keep the twin bond but but if there are two many problems I can just change him into an adopted white younger brother.

Security expert who fake breaks into places to make them better isn’t a terrible problem, but I’m not Hawaiian or Polynesian so I can’t really speak for any exact stereotypes here. As always, you can mitigate this by having multiple native Hawaiians in the story with a variety of roles.

Stolen PoC babies for Indigenous people, on the other hand, is huge. I am talking “guides for what makes a fit parent are conveniently rewritten to steal Indigenous kids” levels. Canada had a mass theft of Indigenous children in the 60s, called the 60s Scoop, so it’s not ancient history at all. This is an Indigenous issue that needs a ton of sensitivity, and if you do want to keep PoC leads then really dig down to which ethnicity doesn’t have a massive adoption crisis in modern day North America.

That all being said, I’m going to specifically talk about some unfortunate implications in the changeling myth, and how you’re reinforcing something you might not be aware of.

Changeling children often end up describing textbook autistic kids, to the point some people believe changelings were describing autistic children. 

Changelings ask strange questions, don’t understand “human” (allistic/non autistic) rules, they have odd sensitivities, rituals, preferences, and sometimes have very superhuman-like abilities. These are the same traits autistic people have.

The main narrative for autism in America right now is that autism “steals” normal kids away, and the goal of various “therapies” for “intervention” is to “find the normal kid underneath autism.” That normal kid doesn’t exist in somebody autistic. But by the way you’ve framed the myth, that normal kid does exist and was stolen.

This isn’t as big a problem so long as the changeling is treated respectfully by the prose, and the end result is “three people, one a bit weird, all become family.” However, if there’s some sort of twist where the changeling is bad, working to destroy things, etc… you’ve basically taken an autistic coded individual and made them evil, reinforcing a narrative that hurts the community deeply.

Regardless of whether or not you keep the character as some sort of PoC, do understand the potential history of changelings, how you’ve created your own changeling, and how you treat them within the plot. This can fight a little bit with PoC representation, because I would love to see fewer “gifted but weird autistic white boy” narratives and more PoC autistic narratives. White boys are terribly over-represented whenever autism is discussed, to the point PoC and girls/AFAB individuals often don’t get diagnosed. People legitimately don’t think it’s possible for us to be autistic thanks to how closely tied autism is to boys.

What she says: I’m fine.

What she means: If Quasimodo is the child of Romani parents in the Disney version of Hunchback of Notre Dame, then why does he have red hair and light skin? All the other Romani in the film have dark skin and dark hair, so are we just supposed to believe that Quasimodo got the jackpot of recessive genes when he was born? Or does his skin tone and hair color imply that he was abandoned by other parents at birth, and that the Romani woman in the beginning took compassion and opted to raise him as her own? What if the reason the 4 Romani were sneaking into Paris at the beginning of the film was that they were trying to find the abandoned baby’s original parents? Or maybe they were sneaking in because they didn’t want authorities to think they had stolen the baby from a Caucasian couple in the city. That could explain why the mother ran rather than just show Frollo the baby in her arms. Oh god, this further emphasizes that in his life the only people to show Quasimodo compassion were the Romani. And Phoebus, although Phoebus marries into the Romani so yeah.
