* A chapter in Creator/PhilFoglio's ''XXXenophile'' has a character do this to rescue her love. It's a bit more explicit naturally, as she has to have in a "lover's clasp" throughout the transformations. Naturally, this series being what it is, you don't have to guess what that entails.

* BalefulPolymorph: The fairy queen turns Tam Lin into various animals after Janet pulls him off the horse. In some versions, she also says she should have turned him into a tree instead of taking him along on the hunt.



* FantasyContraception: In some versions this is why Janet goes back to Carterhaugh.

* FantasyContraception: In some versions this is why Janet goes back to Carterhaugh. A "poison rose" is mentioned (although it might just be called that because roses were important earlier in the song).
* GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion: See above. In those versions, Janet, while she does want the baby, isn't about to be an unmarried mother, and tells Tam Lin off for acting horrified when he's in no position to fix that. But, of course, she rescues him, so presumably she ends up keeping the baby.

The numerous variants collected by Francis Child can be found [[http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/eng/child/ch039.htm here]]. Joseph Jacobs' "Tamlane" can be read [[http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/More_English_Fairy_Tales/Tamlane here.]] The song or songs inspired by it have been recorded by numerous artists, including Music/FairportConvention, Music/SteeleyeSpan, Music/{{Current 93}}, and Music/TheDecemberists (the latter a loose adaptation of it as ''The Hazards of Love'' [[spoiler:with a DownerEnding]]).

Some time later, a knight at Janet's father's court remarks that Janet looks knocked up. Janet agrees, but says the baby's father is not any of the men at her father's court. She returns to Carterhaugh and speaks to Tam Lin.

In a nutshell: Headstrong young Janet hears that the mysterious Tam Lin has forbidden all maidens to go to the wood called Carterhaugh (a real place; it's near Selkirk), on pain of... how shall we put this... [[FateWorseThanDeath no longer being maidens]]. She declares that she will go to Carterhaugh, but she has no sooner picked a rose[[note]]in ballads and stories, picking a rose summons the ruler of the place. See also "Literature/BeautyAndTheBeast".[[/note]] than Tam Lin himself shows up...[[note]]in some versions it's consensual, in some versions he rapes her, and in some the deed isn't mentioned at all, just the resulting pregnancy.[[/note]]
