    Summary

    Alex perched on the edge of the couch cushion, sweeping a hand over the pale skin of the man’s face. “Where did you come from?”

    His eyes stayed closed, but his color was better. His hair had dried, his breathing had steadied. He laid a hand over the blankets. Alex knew he couldn’t hear him. He didn’t mind talking to the open air. He reached under the blankets, pulling a long-fingered hand from under the cocoon of warmth. His fingers were losing their bluish hue. He delicately turned it over at the wrist, exposing a blistered and torn palm to the lamplight.

    “Your shoulders say sailor, but your hands say rich boy. Whoever you are, you should have known better than to go out last night. You read the wind wrong, I guess.” Alex poked at the ripped skin. He took a breath and let it out slowly. “I hope you wake up so I can ask you. Someone has to be looking for you.”

    Or: the Selkie + Lighthouse Keeper AU that, quite literally, no one asked for.

    Summary

    “Someone,” Strange says, “is selling cryptid components.” He pauses, and Sam could swear he’s looking at Bucky. “And making a killing doing it. Literally.”

    “Cryptid components?” Natasha asks, leaning forward. “What are those in the context of this mission?”

    Strange shifts his eyes from Bucky to Natasha. “Nascent fishkin scales—” he starts.

    “Fishstick what, now?” Stark interrupts.

    “You would know them as merfolk,” Strange continues, “vampire teeth, chupacabras claws, cockatrice spurs, phoenix feathers, sasquatch fur.” He makes a dismissive motion with one hand. “The list is long and the specifics are immaterial.”

    (Or: Bucky and Sam go undercover as a married couple on a mission to break up a poaching ring that’s attacking cryptids. It’s a great opportunity to learn about the magical community and explore their human-selkie relationship… but can they stand (and protect) their neighbors?)

    Summary

    Having grown up by the ocean, Ochako Uraraka supposed that she ought to have a fond appreciation for it, at the very least. Don’t get it twisted, she had a lovely childhood by the sea, and often looked back at her younger memories with a kind smile, but the ocean itself has always given her the heebie-jeebies (so to speak).

    Summary

    In a small seaside town called Tadfield, one of the last places on Earth where humans and magic coexist, an exiled selkie and a human who ran away from her life accidentally get themselves married in the oldest, most binding sense.
    The two are forced to stay together until they can find a way to undo it and free the other from their accidental marriage.
    It sure would be complicated if they started to fall for each other in the process…

    Summary

    A creature which should never have been born. An experiment which should never have been attempted. A pirate king who should never have been crowned. A spirit that should never have been chained. A cartographer who should never have drowned.

    But such is the way of the sea. Ever dangerous. Ever changing. One shift of the wind can bring with it the song of a siren, or the wail of a sea-ghost, and change a man's entire trajectory.

    Or

    When Chuuya, the fabled Devil of the Red Sea, is taken prisoner by Captain Mori, he is forced to form an unusual alliance with Dazai, the Captain's suicidal protege, in order to regain his freedom. Along the way, they pick up an unwilling prisoner of their own: a cartographer by the name of Kunikida who just wants to go home.

    Summary

    "Grian’s laughter had petered out, though he was still smiling. Rays of sunlight caught stray strands of his damp hair, creating a golden halo around the crown of his head. He looked so different from the creature of the depths he had been only a few moments ago, instead radiating an effortless ethereal allure.

    In this moment, Scar saw him as he was - both beauty and beast."

    Or,

    Scar is a businessman, first and foremost. He's an expert in the games he has to play to maintain his power and wealth, and isn't afraid to use methods that most would abhor. However, things begin to change when he's approached with an unusual offer. He's gifted the skin of a selkie to study, opening an entire array of potential scientific advancements. It's the kind of opportunity any good businessman would dream of. There's just one problem - what to do with the captive selkie that comes with it?

    Summary

    After a suicide attempt, Dazai is cast away to work at the lighthouse his great uncle had owned in the north of the mythical Shimane prefecture. He's not even in the town, he's three nautical miles away from the nearest port, always overlooking a populace that he supposes he can never be a part of.

    Dazai finds that this esoteric ward he does not acknowledge offers more surprises than creeping loneliness. When the body of a man washes up on his beach, it seems that fortune has offered him a hand in repairing a piece of himself he has come to tolerate through the eyes of someone who has no idea what it means to be a human.

    Summary

    "Kariya Masaki was ALONE... It began and ended with that one simple word... Nothing would change. This was his constant. This was his safety."

    Between the wind and the water there sits a lonely cottage. Inside that lonely cottage there lives a lonely boy. As lonely as he is, to him there's nothing wrong with isolation... That is, until two very strange people wash ashore in the nearby cove. Hopefully the local Governor's ward won't find out that they're pirates or else they'll be executed. And hopefully these two pirates can break down the walls surrounding this lonely child's heart.

    Aka: Kariya is a sad kid who doesn't realise he needs some good ol' found family to cheer him up and Shindou needs to get over his (totally) dead best friend.

    Summary

    Foss isn't used to having to schedule things, normally he times things by tides not clocks. He also isn't used to actually forming attachments to people. So when he has to *wait* to see Rune, he doesn't quite understand why it feels like it's been a long time when it's only been a few days.

    Rune is very pleased with this state of affairs. And will absolutely not entertain the idea of introspection as to why she missed him too.
