    Summary

    Lance has been waiting his whole life for the day he got to study the merfolk up close. It's a dream come true to finally see the mystical creatures in person and he can't wait to make new discoveries. Including love, perhaps?

    Keith's been dreading this migration ever since he became of age. Looking for a mate has never appealed to him and he doesn't expect that to change. He's too strange and different from the others. He would never strike another mer's fancy. But maybe...he'd strike a human's interest instead?

    Summary

    Ships ruled the seas in a constant war of dominance and territory. Although hundreds of ships cut the waves of the sea, only one was feared by all. The Legendary Blue lion. It’s known that spotting the Blue Lion ship only means death is coming unless you are the one (un)lucky person that is left to tell the tale of what happened to you and your ship. Now, who is the captain of such an amazing ship? Well, no other then the handsomely and feared Lance McClain. Rumor has it that he detects attacks weeks before it happens and is why he is always ready to fight. Rumors say he charmed the sea into steering his ship to treasure and victory. But hey it’s just legends right? Lance McClain is only 23 years old and took his name at the early age of 16, with the help of his trusty crew of course. Now though? He still wants more, he wants to prove to the world that he isn’t just some meer pirate, no he is going to do the unspeakable and find and conquer the lost city of Altea. Most think he’s crazy, all except his crew for they have all seen the wrath of the 23-year-old captain. There’s just one problem, the only way to find Altea is by the help of a mermaid. So who is the unlucky mermaid Lance is going to take?

    Summary

    In a world where men of the sea and land are separated by fear and hostility, a young prince of the sea breaks an age old rule and visits the surface in order to see what the colors that light up the sky are. Never in his wildest dreams did he think of doing such a thing, never did he dream of seeing a sailor- of talking to one!
    And perhaps in his moment of insanity he marked the other with a kiss that would connect both their hearts together with a red string that simply would not break.

    Perhaps the sailor didn't want the string to break.

    Summary

    As the only known Homo octopoda specimen in captivity, Shiro enjoys certain perks at The Garrison Institute of Marine Life and Oceanology, such as his very own room-sized tank and all the fish he could ever want. That is until a research vessel finds an injured Mer and brings him to the Garrison for medical attention. But the feral Mer has no intention of playing nice with the Garrison scientists.

    Summary

    "He found out, with pleasure, that Keith went to the beach every morning and every morning Shiro watched him from afar. With grace and elegance he rode the wave caressing the water as if it were an old friend of his, as if the surfboard were an extension of his body.
    Only a few times he had seen him fall into the water but even on that occasion Keith immediately returned to his surfboard ready, with a determined look, to face the next wave.
    Shiro admired him.
    [...]
    His face a few inches from his own was still clear and vivid in his mind. Those long pointed ears, violets in contrast with the almost human face. Harmonic, marked only by a scar that started from one cheekbone and ended at the other but nothing in that creature seemed a flaw. Not even that odd tuft of hair that fell lightly on his face, white totally opposite to his dark hair. Keith could swear he saw even a couple of gills on either side of his neck.
    But what had struck him most of all was the way he had looked at him. With a sweet and caring look, as if he had known him for a long time, as if he were really alarmed by his safety and, somehow, even Keith felt the same way about him."

    Summary

    “Is this okay?”
    Keith asks this a lot. He knows Shiro doesn’t understand him, but he asks anyway and Shiro seems to like it. Most creatures like to be talked to. Cryptids like Shiro and the others at the facility are no different. The words don’t matter. They respond to Keith's voice, his inflection, his body language. Even if they aren’t intelligent enough to understand what permission is, they trust Keith more for asking for it.


    In which Keith has a crush and Shiro understands better than he thinks.

    Summary

    Keith takes a swim, gains a secret admirer, and finds something to live for.

    There's a cut on his bottom lip, a row of tiny lacerations that smart when he pulls at them to get a better look.

    He doesn't notice the bruise on his upper arm until the next day. He catches the edge of it at the corner of his eye when he's pulling on a fresh shirt: blue lines, like stripes, but when he turns and twists to see how they ring his arm, he realizes what they look like.

    The lines are like fingers. It’s a handprint.

    Summary

    Just a story where you the reader live on the coast while the paladins are merfolk. Other characters are there as well but you'll have to read the story to find them.

    First chapter, or part if you so choose, is mostly just info.

    Any constructive criticism is appreciated. Hopefully you enjoy this...

    Mermaid UA
    Keith's POV
    “It’s going for the exit!”
    “Drop the net!”
    Voices carry over the wind. I panic. Above me, a net falls down the canyon wall, not over me as I expected, but weights carry it down and I realize too late that they’re trying to block my exit. I dive. The surface above me is suddenly loud. There a lot of them. Humans.

    Summary

    Shiro had always loved the stars.

    He’d spent countless nights watching them twinkle overhead, spinning slowly around his head like a great distant halo. He’d tracked their patterns, followed his favourite constellations over the horizon and greeted them when the reemerged seasons later. Shiro had counted every falling star he’d seen, a running tally etched in the soft stones that made up his home. Some of them would spin around the horizon out of sight, or others would burn out in the middle of their path. No matter his best efforts, he’d never managed to find one that made it down to Earth.

    Star 143 was different though.

    Star 143 brought Keith.

    Or else, Galra Keith crashes down to Earth only to befriend a stargazing merman who can't take his eyes off him.

Will Shiro and Keith's fairy tale romance stand through it all? What will the challenge reveal about both of them?
    On top of it all, the longer Shiro stays in human form, the worse his legs hurt. He's afraid that he and Keith's worlds will drift too far apart if he has to live in the water.
