    Summary

    A selkie is mythological creatures found in Irish, Scottish and Faroese folklore. Similar creatures are described in Icelandic traditions. Selkies are said to live like seals in the sea, but they strip their skin to become humans on earth. Legend has it that if a human finds the seal skin, he can submit to the selkie, who will faithfully obey the one who owns his skin. However, if Selkie finds her skin, she will flee back to the sea.

    But what if the selkie doesn't want to go back?

    Summary

    Once upon a time, there was a cold stretch of sandy beach, and a stiff breeze blowing in from the north, as a little girl went for a walk.
    She wasn’t looking for anything but shells, and perhaps a bit of sun, but it was such a very cloudy day, there was little to no chance of it.
    She walks and walks, until she sees something, prettier than a shell, and lanky as an otter.
    They’re singing, and as she watches, birds flap past, and fish jump from the waves.

    Summary

    Between Sea, Between Stone
    "Being a selkie without their coat is like… is like when the amulet was sitting in the sunlight after Kanjigar died. It's right there, but you can't reach it. It's like… if your books were in the sunlight. They're right there, you remember what they feel like, smell like, what they say inside. Being by the ocean without my skin is like finally getting those books back, but opening those pages to find them blank. It hurts. You'll live, but the pain never quite goes away."

    Summary

    As far as Thomas is concerned, he's just a regular student at a tiny Virginian university. Sure, he witnessed a bird trying to break into his dorm room. Sure, one of his most annoying classmates (Alexander Hamilton, naturally) might have a habit of disappearing, returning in odd places hours later covered in bruises and with leaves in his hair.

    And sure, he might have found out he -- Thomas, your normal person -- is a shapeshifter. Hell, that magic even exists in the first place!

    Really, it's not his thing.

    But he wouldn't mind learning how to fly...

    "Once, selkies wandered as they pleased, visiting nearby towns and exploring the land around their oceans to their hearts content.
