I tried a quick write for @froggyflan ;~; I said I was gonna write them a fic, and here it is. It’s not what it could be but I tried! Hope it doesn’t suck.
What’s he doing…? Mako thought. That was a fishing boat, and this fish was swimming right up to it. Was he dumb? Probably. Maybe he got shook around too much. He certainly looked like it. Stupid merman had some torn up gangly tail and some sickly green color. Scars littered up and down his tail as well as on his more human looking back and arm. He had what looked like a fishing hook lodged in his fin and ridiculously enough, a plastic can holder managed to get itself stuck on his tail years ago. It’s been there as long as anyone could remember. Among the mer-people in the sea, he’d been affectionately given the nickname Junkfish…
oikawa x female!mermaid headcanons (if you havent done this already)
It was like a dream come true when he stumbled upon you. If mermaids existed that means aliens do too, right? He asked you that question, but unfortunately you did not have a straightforward answer for him.
He’s fiercely protective of you and your identity. He does everything in his power to make sure nothing happens to you, but it’s not always that easy. One time he had to bury you under the sand leaving you with only your head sticking out.
Oikawa is fascinated with you and always seems to be asking you questions about anything and everything having to do with being a mermaid. You tell him whatever he wants to know as long as it doesn’t endanger the existence of other mermaids.
He offhandely mentions that he would love to see what it’s like to be a merman. You made the mistake of mentioning that there’s a Sea Witch that could transform him ,and now he won’t stop pestering you about it.
Loves your tail and the vibrant colours that adorn it. It’s much different than flesh and has a habit of tracing them with his fingers. Little does he know that a mermaid’s tail is quite sensitive.
Often lays with you underneath the night sky with the sound of the ocean in the background as he tells you stories about his everyday life. He talks about volleyball, aliens, etc.
If you happen to possess the pendant that allows you to have legs, he is so excited to show you the world! The day will be packed with adventure and trying out new foods and what not.
He took you to the aquarium one time and found you talking to the marine animals. It was amazing to watch the dolphins interact with you. They knew exactly what you were saying.
He looks at sushi and other fish-containing foods in a new light. He feels kind of weird about eating it because he’s dating you, a mermaid!
When he gets lonely without you, he bought a tank and filled it full of fish that reminded them of you. Sometimes he tried to talk to them but it never works out.
His face lights up every time you bring him a shell that you found in the bottom of the ocean or some rare gem from an old ship wreckage. He holds it near and dear to his heart.
You once made a comment of how he’d make a gorgeous merman and now he can’t get the thought out of his head. You were being honest though, a little starfish in his hair would be adorable.
Ok so I was thinking of possible outcomes for the next chapter and : so Yuri is basically terrified seeing that the man he had a (crush???) on for years saw him and plus , he's a merman like ???? So terrified Yuri is slowly back away and viktor panics not wanting to lose him after such a long time of searching and maybe since viktor IS currently on top of the cliff he perhaps gets to close to the edge andbAm angst
It’s hard to reply those messages because i could spoil you with anything but man you guys really want Victor to fall down that cliff xD (i’ve seen the replies on the comic)
Okay, finally got the courage to send in this request! How about Zen as a merman meeting a human MC? It can be like The Little Mermaid if you like; both he and Ariel share that same inner strength and determination, a big reason as to why they are two of my all-time favorite characters. <3 Or it can be a plot of your own design. The idea of Zen as a merman sounds really awesome because he *does* look like he can come from another world, and I'm sure he'd look great as one. c: Thank you so much!
When I tried writing this, Zen always somehow ended up being a siren
rather than a merman and took lots of rewriting trying to figure out a
plot to use, but I finally did it! Sorry for the wait, and thank you for
requesting! I really want to make a full multi-part/chaptered fic with
this because I had a much deeper plot in mind, buuuut for now I’ll leave
it like this. (I’ll post my fic ideas for what the deeper plot of it is
There was something about the land that seemed so
fascinating to a sea-dweller like Zen. Perhaps because it was a world he
doesn’t know much of and wanted to learn more, or perhaps it was out of
mere curiosity. Humans were such strange creatures, and though they
were interesting, they were quite dangerous towards merpeople.
was it about immortality that made humans act so violent and greedy to
get a chance at it? It wasn’t like the humans knew if those legends
about merpeople were true. …Well, the legends of merpeople and their
link towards immortality weren’t too far off. Zen himself has never come
into contact with a human, but he has heard stories from others, so
despite his curiosity towards the complicated creatures, he did maintain
a safe distance from them.
But even so, Zen wanted to see what
the land was like. The merman couldn’t leave the sea for too long, but
he did enjoy spending some time on the shore in the middle of the night
with no humans in sight as his eyes scanned around the area and starry
It was just like any regular night with him spending some
idle time on the shore when Zen picked up on some footsteps in the sand.
He glanced around and saw a human from afar. You were walking along the
shore, unable to find some sleep and decided to go for a quick stroll.
Zen immediately retreated back to the water, but he couldn’t help but be
curious. This was his first time seeing a human after all, so he stayed
behind, still keeping a safe distance away and hidden away by the
You sit down onto the sand with a heavy sigh, wiggling your
toes in the grains that offer ticklish sensations. The corners of your
lips mar themselves into a frown as you recall something unpleasant from
the day, and out of frustration, you pick up a small stone and throw it
into the water. You were expecting to hear a splash, but all you heard
instead was a voice.
Your eyes widen, and you immediately stand up in a panic. “Who’s there?!”
was about to leave at risk of getting caught, but he can see the fear
in your expression, and he bites his lip. Human or not, he wasn’t one to
leave a woman in distress. Trying to push away the thoughts of what the
consequences might be, the merman makes himself known to you. “You
should be careful throwing stuff into the ocean. People live here.”
etches its way onto your features as this gorgeous young man is
revealed in the moonlight, his silvery white hair catching the moonlight
in all the right ways. “Who…are you?” You ask slowly before your eyes
look into the water and realize that this young man doesn’t have any
legs but a— “Are you a merman?!” You gasp in awe and wonder.
There’s a small moment of silence before Zen asks, “…Are you not going to try to catch me to eat me?”
“What? Why would I do that?” Your face scrunches up in disgust at the idea.
“Isn’t that what you humans do with us? Eating the flesh of us merfolk to gain immortality?”
furrow your eyebrows together. “I have no idea what kind of humans
you’ve been hanging out with, but I’m not like that.” Suddenly realizing
how rude you were being, you quickly introduce yourself, offering your
name to the merman.
“I’m Zen,” the male introduces himself to you after coming to the decision that you seem friendly enough.
that, it sort of became a natural occurrence for the two of you to meet
up on the shore in the middle of the night. Both you and Zen engaged in
conversations about each other’s world, interested in the way the other
lived; however, the conversations started to shift at some point. It
was no longer about the other’s world as a whole, but about the other as
a person. The topics of discussion changed from the foods people eat to
your favourite type of food, or places that exist to places you’ve been
to and would want to visit.
“You know,” Zen starts one day, “we’re always talking here on the shore. How about we go a bit further into the water?”
hesitate for a moment. “I-I would like to, but…the thing is…I don’t
know how to swim. I-I’m afraid of drowning, to be honest, especially at
night with nobody else around.”
“I’m here,” Zen reminds you with a reassuring smile. “I’ll keep you safe.”
don’t know why, but you end up trusting the merman. You give a slow nod
of your head. “Okay then, tomorrow night. I’ll be sure to wear my
As promised, the next night, you had worn a swimsuit
underneath your usual attire. Warmth crawled up to Zen’s cheeks as he
watched you strip down to it before you take a few steps into the water.
“It’s cold!” You complain with a shiver, but you don’t back out. You’ve
already gone this far.
You continue walking, the seafloor getting
deeper and deeper, and a sense of anxiety fills you the more your body
is submerged in water. You’re on your tiptoes by now, and Zen
immediately goes to your side, grabbing hold of your hand. “It’s okay,
I’m right here. Just relax…”
You nod, putting your faith and trust
in the merman, and he guides you a bit further into the water,
squeezing your hand and not once letting go. You kick your legs around
for a bit, trying to figure out what kind of movement would help you
stay afloat, and after a while, you finally get used to it. Even after
becoming more comfortable, however, Zen doesn’t let go of you, tilting
his head to the side as he stares at you.
“This is the closest we’ve ever been,” the merman notes with a small hum, the sound ringing pleasantly in your ear.
find yourself blushing at the realization, and offer an awkward sound
of acknowledgement, finding yourself unable to trust your own voice at
the moment. At your silence, Zen decides to continue, “It’s a bit
strange… I didn’t expect humans to be so…soft to the touch. It’s nice,
and I quite like it.”
Almost as though to prove his point, Zen
trails a finger along the length of your arm, starting from the wrist
all the way to your shoulders. Your heart leaps in your chest when he
doesn’t stop, dragging all of his fingers now along the column of your
neck to your jawline before cupping your cheek. Your heart hammers
against you when Zen locks his gaze with yours.
about the way he looks at you that makes your cheeks flush. Somehow, it
seems like your senses are heightened, and you can take note of every
single detail. Your forms reflected on the surface of the water. The
moonlight illuminating the pair of you. The subtle sounds of moving
water. The warmth of Zen’s body against yours. The way his shaky breaths
mix with yours in the small space between your lips as Zen leans closer
towards you, tilting his head to the side which allows some of his hair
around his shoulders to fall off.
You close your eyes in
anticipation, and you feel Zen’s lips on the corner of your mouth. He
lingers there for a moment before suddenly leaning back, almost as
though just realizing what he was doing.
“I-I’m sorry, I don’t
know why I—I-I just felt like…” The merman stumbles with his words
before trailing off, the redness of his cheeks plainly obvious even in
the darkness of the night.
You squeeze Zen’s hand, prompting him to look up at you. “I think I understand…”
ok so ari grew his hair out after the accident right, and never bothered to cut it properly again because he knew how much dante liked it so lets talk about ari mendoza and his long hair
ok but seriously buns
dante and ari go swimming at the pool, just chilling, being nerds cool boyfriends by holding a ‘who can hold their breath the longest’ competition
((side note: ari won, out of sheer determination and willpower))
when they both resurface, dante informs ari that underwater, he looked like some sort of merman with his hair loose and floating around his face
ari rolls his eyes and tells dante that he’s strange ((he’s secretly very pleased though that for a second dante saw him as something unearthly/magical/unknowable))
b u n s
ari working a shift at the charcoaler and dante turns up and orders a burger (not bc he particularly wants one but it gives him an excuse to chat with ari whilst he’s working without getting him into trouble with his fascist boss)
whilst he’s working ari keeps his hair in a ponytail to keep the hair out of his face, because it’s so hard to work with your hair e v e r y w h e r e and damn, it must get so hot in the charcoaler, especially in the summer??
of course bits of hair come loose though as he works and fall annoyingly in front of his face as he works, framing his face and curled slightly from sweat
ari doesn’t notice dante’s eyes following his hand every time that he tucks an unruly strand behind his ear again
did i mention b u n s ??
ari and dante drive out to the desert again one night. they lie in the back of the truck, silently looking up at the stars
ari’s head is resting in dante’s lap and dante absent-mindly plays with his hair, winding dark curls around his fingers.
ari thinks he’s found the perfect moment, one he wishes would last forever.
who cares about uncovering the secrets of the universe when dante is holding him like he’s the most precious secret of them all
the extremely rare resident hot kid came back in today. i sold him a bunch of competitive swimming accessories but didn’t get his name so he will now be referred to as The Merman until further notice. he is very beautiful like a merman and i’m counting down the days when he can finally take me to his merlair
Merman Appreciation post! Meet @merman_arion, one of the most lovely mers you will ever meet. He hails all the way from France and is one of my best friends. He has a huge heart and is just amazing in the water. I cannot stop watching this clip. He is so incredibly graceful! Check out that gorgeous back flip!
Send a follow his way!
His tail was created by @finfolkproductions just like mine. He is also wearing some @organicarmor in this clip!
“I think with all the heat going on, the guards are occupied to even care.” Jacen was in the kitchen basically rummaging through the fridge finding all sorts of food, and sweets he liked. The merman was on the loose with no qualms of doing whatever he wanted. He had the urge to taste every human food he could find, though nothing compared to the various seaweeds he used to have back in the ocean, he let his curiosity take into play. “Undercroft is surrounded by sex, I’m surrounded by food.” He never felt that much freedom, and when an opportunity opened, he was there to grab it.
I saw that thing about vampires living underwater so imagine Eren hearing rumors of mermaids and going to the beach late at night to find a man (Levi ofc) swimming and he’s like “WOAH are you a merman?” and Levi is just like “I’m a fucking vampire” and Eren books the fuck out
