Chrysalized Transformation by DragonsAndDreamscape Chrysalized Transformation by DragonsAndDreamscape
Oh gosh guys I'm sorry I really am!

I didn't mean to do this to Doctor Whooves, buuuut, well, I'd already drawn him.... so let's just say this is his non-TimeLord non-amazing jerky clone counterpart or something.

The point of this is how I imagine one of these chrysalises work. Because I don't think they're just for imprisonment, I think they're created for full transformation.

Stage 1-This is just a couple days after imprisonment. Tendrils begin to form inside the chrysalis and attach themselves to the victim. This stage would be the last chance for a possible rescue.

Stage 2-These tendrils begin to integrate themselves into the victims nervous system to change them from the inside out. The subject begins to feel some basic changeling instincts. A horn and wings begin to grow. If removed from the process now, the victim would die.

Stage 3-The victim's original body is mostly replaced. They may remember some of their original identity, but not much. Holes appear, and the wings and horn are almost formed. The outer shell is still soft.

Stage 4-The process is almost complete. All original identity is lost. The new changeling is hungry, and ready to join the hive-mind. In a few days, it will hatch and act like a normal changeling.

Jeeze, this is dark. I don't know what's up, I've been in the mood for some dark artistic expression lately. I'm probably just getting it out of my system before Christmas art. Tolerate me just a liiiiitle longer folks, and then I'll draw something REALLY cheery!

:iconqueenchrysalisplz::iconsaysplz:Well, to tell the truth, the memory loss actually doesn't occur naturally.  You see...I steal my victims' memories.  Sometimes, when I feel like they've failed me more than usual...I give them back their memories and watch them scream in horror.  Once they've had enough punishment...I rid them of their memories again. ...But to tell the actually pains me to take their memories away. I wish I could comfort them, but...because of my "illness"...I can't give them any love.:iconsaysendplz:

(Chrysalis "illness" is supposed to refer to the popular theory that she's the love poison victim from the story in "Hearts and Hooves Day".)

If the process to turn the victim into a changeling does still able to communicate with others i am curious

I would think that somewhere about halfway through the process, the pony would lose his or her ability to communicate in any normal pony language, and would begin instead to communicate in the ways of the Changelings.
