    Summary

    Merpeople weren’t real, they were simply stories told throughout the centuries to entertain people. They were myths, legends, folklore, or at least, that’s what you thought. So when you saw a person in his birthday suit stumbling around the beach near your house, your first thought "wasn’t omg what if that’s a merperson that just got legs and that’s why he’s falling over like a toddler?" No, it was "holy shit is he drunk out of his mind?"

    Summary

    Since he can remember, Lan Wangji’s uncle has always cautioned him and his brother to stay away from humans. They are jiaoren, they are so utterly different from humans, and the people on land cannot understand anything beyond their greed and hatred. They will try to hurt them, so all they can do is avoid them. If they are attacked, they defend themselves. If they are seen, they make sure to cover their tracks by whatever means necessary. This is the knowledge that he was raised with.

    Yet when he saw the man tossed from the notorious Wen ship, unconscious before he even hit the water, Lan Wangji couldn’t hold himself back.

    Summary

    Kepler Bay, on the edge of New Orleans, is rumored to be home to all manner of mysterious creatures. Among them is one considered by most to be an omen of doom. Red eyed and serpentine, few who see it live to tell the tale.

    Duck Newton is not worried about such things; he knows danger is more likely to come from cottonmouths or corrupt men than from made-up monsters.

    Until one swims up from below and into his life.

    Summary

    Mermaid AU. If you asked Katsuki Bakugou, he was a god among jealous mortals. If you asked his mother, Mitsuki, she would agree, except for the times she'd call him a brain-dead little bitch. If you asked his classmates, well. They knew to keep their mouths shut. So when Mitsuki bought a new, green-haired mer for the family's aquarium business, Katsuki wasn't exactly looking to have his mind changed. Unfortunately, Izuku Midoriya might force him to rethink who he is, what he believes in, and whether his "normal" -- his thoughts, his life, his mother, mers, everything -- is really how the world should be.

    Updates Mondays. The entire story has been written in advance, so I will not miss an update.

    Summary

    If there was one thing Slaine knew, it was that he had fucked up. And that this wasn’t one of his usual fuck ups, oh no. This was major and quite possibly irreversible.

    He was stranded alone and injured in unfamiliar waters. He could probably be done in by a passing pufferfish at this point.

    Summary

    The sea had been a lot of things to Shouta over his life. A thing of beauty, a cruel teacher, a source of endless adventures.

    It had been awe-inspiring, terrifying, and utterly mundane.

    But it had never been a cage before.

    Summary

    Shao Fei just nodded and went back to observe the big crater looming behind them. They weren’t here for the birth of the seahorses but to make sure nothing came out of that crater at least nothing that wasn’t a normal part of the deep sea. The last time a sea serpent had come out of there, sizzling, making the water around them almost boil, poison dripping from every opening of their body Shao Fei had been young, had been appointed a warrior only recently. Since then nothing and it bugged him that he felt something odd from the wrong side.
