The Signs as Mermaids
  • Aries: a vibrant and beautiful creature, Arian mermaids reside in shallow, brackish water such as lagoons, sometimes playing tricks on nearby humans or even drawing ships to their doom with siren calls, their tails are a deep, blood red, marked with unclean, black stripes and fins that unfurl like fans at the end of their tail and its sides, as sharp and dangerous as their teeth, delicate webbing between their fingers
  • Taurus: these laid back beauties stick to mangroves and slow moving water, they decorate their bodies with the wonders of the sea: pearls, shells, and even the ocean life itself, allowing starfish to stick to their tails, they avoid others but will save many sailors from drowning, their scales are as golden as the sun, their fins strong yet tapered delicately
  • Gemini: these mermaids are often found in the middle of the sea, playing with dolphins or even whales, they often tease sailors and flirt with them relentlessly, their tails are particularly long and strong, scales so small they are indistinct though they creep up Gemini's stomach, their fins are awe inspiring shaped like wings at their back and trailing in a swirl behind them, a radiant blue and white like the surf
  • Cancer: these mer make their homes in coral reefs, curled up with eels and using clams as pillows, they protect the reefs from boats and fishermen, they hoard pearls and all other treasure they find, their skin and scales are almost translucent, resembling mother of pearl, and emit a soft light similar to the moon, yet their scales are hard like shell and their nails and teeth must be sharp to defend themselves and the reef
  • Leo: these mermaids are brazen, they often approach populated beaches, drawn by the laughter of the children they love to play with and often save from drowning, they decorate themselves with the treasures of the sea, braiding pearls and shells into their hair, wrapping beautiful plants around their waists, their tails are like sunlight, their eyes sharp and golden, and their fins almost heart-shaped
  • Virgo: these reclusive mermaids live in freshwater rivers where they hunt fish and play in the current, they clean the rivers of trash and help animals survive, algae creeps up their tails and their skin is splattered with markings similar to the pebbled riverbed, their tails are almost rough like an alligator's back and this skin creeps up their spines as well, colored a similar dark green
  • Libra: more siren than mer, these gorgeous beings often steal sailors away, seducing them with first their elegant voices and then their eyes as bright as the sky, they don't realize that they are harming the sailors, only taking them to a better place, Libran mermaids are like wisps of mist, airy and light, tails shiny and a gentle blue, fins delicate and wispy
  • Scorpio: no human has ever seen a Scorpio mermaid, they remain deep beneath the sea where few have ever reached, where no light touches, reclusive and secretive, their scales are as dark as the night but their skin is patterned with intricate swirls which emit a hazy, purple glow just as their eyes do, their tails are as lithe as an eel and finned in a similar manner
  • Sagittarius: who knows where you will spot this mermaid, they travel all over the world, from freshwater to the deepest depths of the ocean, constantly exploring and seeking out other mermaids and people alike, their scales are scattered across their body, the color of the sunrise, and their fins are a brilliant fan, ombre and almost ruffled as it creeps up their tail in layers
  • Capricorn: reclusive and quiet, these mer stay in deep water, very rarely coming to the surface, they are predators but do not attack humans as other mermaids do because they wish to be left alone, their tail is not scaled, rather more similar to a shark's flesh, a deep color that wavers between purple and blue, their fins hard and sharp, all lean muscle and dark eyes
  • Aquarius: these mermaids often hang around heavily populated beaches and even ports, curious about human beings and their technology, they often make friends with humans and visit them regularly, when not amongst humans they are exploring the ocean, their tales are a deep, regal purple, their hair long and tangled, a very similar color, and they decorate their bodies with strange items they find in the water
  • Pisces: these little mermaids are mostly reclusive but very curious about humans, they live in lagoons or among the mangroves, quiet and never imposing, they keep the animals safe and use their magic to keep the water clean, their scales are a deep magenta that glimmers in the light, fins as long as their hair, at their jaw rests a pair of fan-like fins that they use to scare away predators


If you asked any fae in Prythian which court they would like to visit the most, they would all say Summer Court. There is a certain sense of peace that seems to encompass everything- the fishers laughing down at the shore, the sunlight reflecting on the rooftops of Adriata, the dolphins playing in the water. The fae of the Summer Court are clad in the richest, most vibrant colors; and as vibrant as their clothes is their food, every meal an explosion of fruits and vegetables, with wine so sweet you fall asleep after one sip too much. Summer Court ist like honey, dripping slowly onto your plate; it’s hiding in the coolness of the shadow when it gets too hot outside, and it’s wild, heart-breaking music, a symphony, an orchestra. No other court in Prythian has composers and musicians like they do in summer court- incomparable are their concerts and operas, each a small wonder in itself, each a memory never to be forgotten. 

Also, the Summer Court fae are in love with turtles. Every family has at least one turtle and their are to be protected at all cost. Tarquin, the High Lord of Summer, even has an own garden for the “royal” turtles and it’s one of the most stunning pieces of architecture in all of Adriata.

Hi there! I love your blog and I've been meaning to ask you about tall ship sailing for awhile, if you don't mind writing about it--how did you get started? Is it a job or something you have to pay to do? It sounds really cool honestly.

I started because my EU passport expired the same time the season began. I grew up in Maine where there’s a healthy tall ship community, and I’ve always been starry-eyed over tall ships, and I would rather have starved than gone back to being a bank teller. So I figured ‘why not, it’ll be a great story at least’ and emailed pretty much every captain between here and North Carolina. I got a job as a messmate - a beginner’s position on most overnight ships, sort of a combination cook’s assistant/busboy/assistant deckhand when you have free time. Mid season I was moved to deck crew, because we had a vacancy and I was pretty vocal about wanting to be on deck. I expected it to be a summer job, but I really, really fell in love with it! It can be extremely taxing, for sure - long hours, low pay, lots of customer interaction, dirty work. But it can also be exactly as romantic as you’re probably imagining - going aloft, crossing the gulf stream, learning increasingly complicated knots, swimming in bioluminescence, dolphins playing around the bow, sea shanties, being part of something as huge and complicated and lovely as a tall ship.

There are tall ships with programs where you pay to learn how to sail, and programs where you volunteer unpaid, but honestly if you’ve got enthusiasm, are willing to get dirty, aren’t bothered by the rough living conditions (small bunks, and especially during pre-season work, hot water/electricity/running water at all/refrigeration are rare) and low pay (from paid messmates, I’ve heard anywhere from $120-400/week), it’s not hard to find a paying job without experience! If you want to know a bit more about that, I wrote a post a while ago here.

Light reflected off the dancing waves. Glimpses of the world beneath the waves was quickly revealed before being hidden once more. The ocean was a world of mystery and beauty, something that could never be tamed. This wild beauty had always drawn you. It was like the ocean was calling to you but you didn’t know how to respond. In fact you were actually terrified of going into the ocean, which was a huge contradiction to what you felt. But you were deathly afraid of entering the water and refused to go anywhere near a beach.

NCT Dream react to their GF getting them a big teddy

Request: NCT reacts to short (shorter than 152 cm/5 ft.) g/f giving them an 8-foot tall teddy bear that, when its nose is pressed, gives various clips of them laughing. Thank you! (I sent one in specifically for Chenle because hE’S MISSING IN YOUR POSTS, AND I NEED THAT BAB’S DOLPHIN LAUGH IN MY LIFE.)

This is possibly the best request I have ever seen it was so happy and it made me happy. Also, I agree about Chenle and because of that I made this an NCT Dream post just to make things different :) Hope you like this - Em x

Mark: “How did you find a teddy so big. Like bigger than even Johnny and by like 2ft.” He would laugh at how big and awesome the teddy was. “This is so cool!” He would give you a hug. “That’s the last hug you will ever get because I have this teddy now! Just kidding, I prefer to cuddle smaller people.”

Renjun: You would wait till his practice had just finished and as he was about to go home you would surprise him. You jumped out from behind the door holding a massive stuffed panda bear. Renjun would immediately break out into a massive grin almost crying he was so happy. “This is so kind and cute. Ahhh how did I get such a cute girlfriend?” He would pull you and the teddy into a massive hug.

Jeno: As he was walking home from school you would surprise him with the massive bear. “I thought you had extra study?” Jeno asked. You had planned your surprise by saying you couldn’t walk home together as you did every day. “Well it turns out I didn’t, I did have to meet a friend to collect this bear for you, though.” You replied holding it out to him. Jeno reached over to get it giving you a very quick peck on the cheek as he did.

Haechan: You would knock at the dorm door and Haechan would open it a bit surprised because it must have taken someone so small a lot of effort to move something so big. “How did you even get this teddy to here y/n? It’s almost twice the size of you, it’s bigger than me. I love it though it’s so cute just like you.”

Originally posted by donghyukslee

Jaemin: You would be at the fair together and when Jaemin said he needed to go to the loo or something where you couldn’t go with him, you would run to the closet stall where you could win one of the giant stuffed snowmen. (It was a winter fair) You had been practising so you could win it quickly and sure enough, you did. When Jaemin came back you would give it to him and he would smile so bright like the sunshine he is. “I was sad because I couldn;t participate in the comeback but you make everything better y/n.”

Chenle: It was Chenle’s birthday and you had been planning his present for a long time. It was perhaps the cutest present ever to be given. You snuck it into his room and hid behind it because it was so big and you were short at best. Chenle walked into the room to see an eight ft dolphin resting between his bed and the wall. It had a note by it saying press me.

He pressed the nose that seemed to stand out and a message played in Chinese from you. (If you don’t know chinses assume you did it specially). After the cute message had played every time he pressed the nose his cute dolphin laugh would play. He heard you laughing at how cute he was and pulled you out from under the dolphin.

“Y/n this is honestly the best present I have ever got it is so cute and I love it. Thank you so much you’re the best girlfriend ever and cuter than even my dolphin because you are small, unlike it.”

Jisung: You popped out from behind the sofa when Jisung got back from practice. You had been waiting for ages since Jeno let you in. You threw a massive teddy at him which almost knocked him over. “Suprise!” You yelled. Jisung ran over to the teddy and over to you. “How did you even get this upstairs? Ahhh who cares its such a cool present. Now I won’t be lonely even when my best friend/ girlfriend isn’t around. This is the best. Just like you.”

Silence filled the space between Dean and you. As you sped along the ocean bottom your mind whirled trying to process what had just happened. Today had been one heck of a day, you had discovered you were a mermaid, then been attack by some unknown menace, and then you had been rescued by a man that you had some strange connection with. It was all so wild, and doubts still lurked in the back of your mind.
