Mermaid-Caves

consider:

  • ice mermaids that live in the arctics, who swim in the freezing cold water and make their homes in caves
  • lava mermaids that live in volcanoes and swim in the magma, their skin infused with obsidian
  • forest mermaids with slimy skin who live in the swamps/marshes/bogs
  • lake mermaids who hoard the things that sink to the bottom, with long flowy hair like the vegetation
  • river mermaids who dodge rocks as they race other fish down the current, or help them get upstream
  • pond mermaids with colourful koi fish skin/fins who laze around, sunbathing near the surface

consider:

  • mermaids

choose a concept:

you ran into some mermaids in a cave of clear water and pink crystals. every time you start to leave, they sing to you in their melodic voices, and you sit back down.

you hit the earth so hard, you forgot what it felt like to be holy. you miss the feelings of light and love that only heaven brought you.

you met a cryptid in your local arcade and now you’re playing video games together. both of you are super competitive but are having a fun time.

it’s one in the morning and your robot girlfriend is in the corner powered down for the night. everything is still and peaceful.

x many years in the future, everyone is partially cyborgs and you and your best friends running through the city at night.

you’re walking through an abandoned amusement park on a cold and foggy morning. you keep hearing laughter, but every time you turn around, no one’s there.

i really need to do this hw and i swear i’m trying to focus but i’m. very gay.

Hunting down the last mermaids.

A painting study that took a very elaborate turn. It’s my first time fitting so many characters in a single composition. The second image you see is how the model posed, versus what I managed to finish painting during the class. I worked on the background between yesterday and today. I still need to work on my textures a little bit but I am overall satisfied with the result.

The process gif skips soooo many steps though lol. I swear I reworked each mermaid like three times, I just couldn’t get their faces to look right no matter how much I tried!

it’s so weird that a bunch of weirdos wearing sparkly golden shirts can get onstage and sing about harry potter, dicks, the little mermaid in space, bisexual cave people, and i can be filled with so much love for them. For some reason tonight i’m feeling such a love for starkid, and i’m so thankful for everything they’ve done for me. Today has been a shit day, and starkid has made me feel so much better. Thank you starkid. You might not even know i exist, but you’ve made a huge difference in my life, and i owe everything i am to you. Your musicals, friendships, tweets, and the fandom you’ve created have legitamently saved my life, and i can’t thank you enough. Thank you starkid. I don’t know what i would do without you.

Divided We Fall (OUAT - Peter Pan x Reader) Part 1

Requested by @ajakral

Synopsis: Who said there were no girls on Neverland? Who said Peter Pan ruled over this world on his own?

Because behind every great man there is an even greater woman, what would the king be without his queen?

The delicate rustling of the leaves lulled them, making it hard not to fall asleep. They were surrounded by dark – night had fallen hours ago and there was no way to tell what time it was. The girls, however, knew better than to give in to their exhaustion and allow themselves to doze off, unbeknownst to anyone but them. Somehow, She always knew. There was no hiding anything from Her. One of them moved her weigh from one food to the other but this movement alone made a lot of noise in the middle of a tranquil night. The girl to her left gave her a worried glance and it seemed to wake them all up. No, they couldn’t fall asleep, they had to keep an eye open and watch camp for the night. Once a week the camp’s safety was in their hands, they could not disappoint Her.

“Report.”

It was an all too familiar voice, one that sent shills down the girls’ spine and inspired a mixture of awe and fear. She was as nurturing as she was fierce; no one in their right mind would consider getting on Her bad side.

Even more mermaids!

Since my other two mermaid posts were so popular, have a third! remember feel free to add your own ideas! this version is about different roles in their society

  • mermaids who aren’t princes/princesses
  • mermaids who don’t live in large kingdoms or big underwater castles, or live in the outskirts/“slums” of one
  • mermaids who live in pods with 5-20 others only, constantly traveling
  • outcasted mermaids who live in the bottom of trenches or in dark caves
  • mermaids who are servants or maids to another family
  • (or the opposite: territorial mermaids who kill anyone who trespasses on their marked land)
  • mermaids who ARE princes/princesses, but they’re like 9th in line for the throne and generally don’t care about their royal duties
  • rebel mermaids who vandalize buildings/old ships [and/or] steal things, and pierce their bodies with sharp shells/metals/plastics they find
  • very busy mermaid mothers with 5-10 little merbabies to look after
  • designated hunters/gatherers who go out to gather food/resources
  • mermaid tribes!!!
  • the old blind chief with a long spindly grey tail
  • the youngest child in a pod/tribe, wearing special clothes/accessories to show their status
  • mermaids with huge families, always somehow distantly related to everyone they meet
  • (or the opposite: mermaids with strong bonds who are related to no one but their own parents or blood siblings)
  • protector/knight mermaids, whose role is to protect others
  • mermaid doctors who use natural herbs/medicines to healthy their people, instead of magic and positions and stuff
  • “sea witch” mermaids who often deal shady shit for an often hefty price
  • mermaids who aren’t filled with wanderlust and dont want to explore everything and visit the surface always
  • mermaids who are terrified of the ocean
  • only certain types of mermaids who can speak to animals

and so, so much more. I love mermaids. probably more idea posts to come idk stay tuned.

“Did she take it?” He asked in the same flat tone he always used when she was on his mind.

Felix once told him it sounded forced and unnatural. That was the day he received the awful scar that would become his distinctive feature. Ever since that day nobody ever mentioned her again unless Pan initiated the conversation, which he rarely ever did, for the obvious reason that he couldn’t even say her name, even after a century. The Shadow nodded and flew away, like it usually did.

A storm was brewing this morning, following the uncharacteristically calm night. All living souls on Neverland knew they better stay in their shacks and not upset him further, for the weather on Neverland was merely a reflection of Pan’s state of mind. What was so different today? Today was special – special to him. Time didn’t pass in Neverland that was true. Not a minute had ticked away since the very first day, but still it was a special day. No one so far had connected the dots yet every 365 days, there was a storm ravaging the island.

How are we not talking about all the different alien races in Voltron?

We’ve got tiny snail people, rock people who live in caves, mermaid conspiracy theorists on an ice planet, literal tech wizards who evolved to build tech out of plant life, space caterpillars living in a landfill, and the Galra who have so much dimorphism in their own species they seem like a mismash of several races melded together.

They’re all different levels of advancement and culture and they even look consistent between genders! I mean between male and female members of the same species, there is a reasonable amount of similarity that they both look consistent (the Balmerans being one of the best examples)

Why are we not talking about them? Why are we so focused on ship wars when there are this many aliens????? In space???? Just being amazing and different?????
