    Summary

    --“Where is my skin?” She gives Peridot a withering look.

    “I’ve hidden it.” Peridot asserts smugly, “just as the book says to.” She points to the fairytale book she'd been referencing.

    Lapis clenches her jaw, “Give it back.”

    Peridot shakes her head, “no deal. You’re MY servant now. And you’re going to have to-”

    “Wife.”

    “Make up for all the weird salt water, and as our servant-

    “Wife.”

    “Help with our study.” She finishes briskly, “wait, what?”

    “Didn’t you finish the book?” She snaps.

    “I mean, I skimmed the important parts, women come onto to land to play and then put their skin back on to go to sea, blah, blah, capture their seal skin.”

    “And they’ll marry you and bare you lots of children.”

    “Bare you lots of…” Peridot can feel the blood drain from her face.

    “Now, at least untie me. Wifey.” She smirks at her. Smartass.--

    Summary

    There is a part of Jungkook that longs for the sea, and he finds it in many things. He finds it in his memories: in the childhood he remembers along the shores of Busan, in the mother who disappeared without warning one day. He finds it in the salt of his sweat, training, working hard to perfect his role as the Golden Maknae of Bangtan.

     

    (He finds it in a secret, gripped close to himself, tucked and hidden somewhere, unseen and away.)

     

    And he finds it in Seokjin, who smells like foam and sunlight — whose cool embraces call to mind the chill of the ocean, gentle and whispering.

    Summary

    They had found Evan two years ago before the loch, lying on the beach battered and bruised from a storm, his arm - his front flipper - broken, shattered really, from where he had been thrown against a rock. They had snatched up his sealskin and took him back to their shared cottage, and nursed him to health.

    When he had asked to leave, they had refused.

    When he tried to escape, they explained to him they didn’t want him to get to hurt.

    When he tried to escape again, they moved inland, away from the shore, and said it was all for the best.

    ---

    “You’re not human, are you?” Connor asked him. “I can tell.”

    “No,” Evan said, because what point in there was lying? “I’m a selkie.”

    Than the social worker calls informing him that he needs to take custody of his former step brother's minor daughter, whose older brother has been deemed an unfit guardian for her. But Harry thinks the social worker isn't giving this Eggsy boy a fair chance, and so offers Eggsy the position of the girl's nanny in his home.

    What comes next...well Harry's sure not even the seers could have predicted some of it.

    Summary

    Papyrus was more than a little tired of the constant balls and feasts his parents threw in an attempt to get him to settle down. He had no interest in the various Monsters and Humans that showed up, few friends aside. He simply wanted a small cottage to retire to and to be happy with his life. And if he could stop feeling broken, that would be wonderful as well.
    Rosi just wanted to see the sights and if it got her away from her family and her species prejudices, all the better. She knew the legends, she knew the expectations. But she didn't want any of them, she couldn't care less. Being rescued, then having to rescue a chivalrous skeleton wasn't something she'd factored into the over all plan, but it seemed to be working out well.
    Sans was tired of the dreams, voices, the screams and the phantom pains. He just wanted peace. He wasn't expecting it to show in the form of a magic-phobic Human.
    Lauren is afraid. Afraid of what she is, who she is, what will happen when magic gets near her. Sans wasn't expecting her to almost literally fall into his life, she wasn't expecting to end in his.
    Together, all of these broken creatures find their way, stumbling, pained, but healing each other in the end.

    Summary

    Don't be like him, they would say, and then add, or else you get burned.

    Unable to bear the whispers any longer, This One left. He forsook those who forsook him, left him bear his scars alone, the scars he bore for his herd. It was better to be alone, stay off the currents, than swim with those most undeserving of his loyalty. So mote it be.

    That is, until he met That One.

    Summary

    When Trott had pulled Smith from the ship wreckage that came ashore during the storm, he'd thought the man to be dead, what with a leg splintered in the wrong direction. Trott didn't ask Smith why he'd been out to sea with a forecast of bad weather; in return, Smith didn't ask why Trott lived alone, so far from coastal cities. Smith had his own secrets, his own scars, and his own stories to rival Trott's. Neither were willing to admit they were hiding- from themselves, or from things they couldn't change.
