    Summary

    Roman knew that he shouldn't be here. He volunteered for the hospital, dressing as a fairy tale prince to make the kids in the hospital smile. The room was dark, he really shouldn't be here. The patient was probably sleeping... but they looked so small in the bed with a large dark hoodie and an otherwise empty room.

    Virgil's been in and out of hospitals most of his life. Thankfully, his older brother, always spewing out facts to ease his anxiety and fear, and his best friend, with his large sunglasses and coffee, never falter. It's all he ever needs in the cold hospital rooms. Until a loud, rowdy, costumed prince shows up and wrecks everything.

    Summary

    virgil wants exactly two things out of life: doctor sanders’ advice on his dissertation and the freedom to pursue his research in peace. he thinks he’s gotten both of these things, and then he finds a wounded merman tangled in a net on the beach. he rescues him, because of course he does, and that’s not so bad.

    then the others show up, and man, they are NOTHING like disney led him to believe.

    at least one of them’s cute, right?

    (OR: the analogical mermaid!au that exactly one person asked for)

    Summary

    “Virgil, do you want your parents to live?”

    "Yes! Please! I-I love them! Please!”

    “Would you do anything to make sure they stay safe?”

    “Yes, I’ll do-do anyth-thing!”

    “Well, I suppose it’s a good thing there is something I want you to do for me, Virgil,”

    “There is?”

    “Yes, you see, I’ve heard rumors about you. I’ve heard about you and your… vocal talent... I would like you to show me,”

    “Rig-right now?”

    “And other times too. If you sing when I tell you, in front of the people I want you to sing to, your parents will stay alive and you will even be able to visit them,”

    “So, Virgil?”

    ...

    Virgil gave up his freedom years ago. He and his parents continued living in exchange for him singing (among... other things) for the King. He doesn't regret it. That is, until three visiting royal turn his world upside down and, for the first time since he was 10, he suddenly wants something other than for his parents to stay alive. Virgil doesn't understand and, neither do the others but, love is not meant to be easy and Virgil, he's learned that the hard way.
