    Summary

    "Why have not we an immortal soul?" asked the little mermaid mournfully. "I would give gladly all the hundreds of years that I have to live, to be a human being only for one day." 

    "You must not think of that," said the witch, "unless a man were to love you. And if all his thoughts and all his love were fixed upon you, and he promised to be true to you here and hereafter-- then his soul would glide into your body and you would obtain a share in the future happiness of mankind. He would give a soul to you, and retain his own as well.

    But this can never happen."

    - Hans Christian Andersen

    ---

    Yet another one of those human!Outsider fics, inspired by the original tale of The Little Mermaid.

    Summary

    The Outsider explores the murky seas of human courtship while Corvo watches in bemusement, and in the background Emily draws, Callista takes charge, Piero sulks, and Cecelia accidentally becomes indispensable. There's also a plague, a vase of asparagus, and about a hundred singing whales who randomly showed up in the harbour one evening.

    The squid is still wriggling.
