RFA + V + Saeran reacting to MC being an mermaid?? Your blog ir my fave mysme hc blog /sorryforthebadenglish
You’re english is actually very good! :) Thank you so much for your support! This was actually a very fun, interesting prompt. As you might notice, I kinda switched between mythologies and kinds of mermaids between characters, so hopefully that makes things interesting! Enjoy!
MC decided to show him in the bathtub in her apartment
His jaw dropped
The only thing that came out of his mouth was, “You look like a mermaid from LOLOL!”
MC laughed as he blushed, and explained that her mermaid cousin had actually designed a lot of mythical creatures for various fantasy based games, and she knows her cousin designed the mermaids for LOLOL
She’s got scales her and there, imbedded in her cheeks and shoulders, and Yoosung just can’t stop staring because she’s so sparkly and pretty
Before he can help it, he says, “If anything happens, at least I’m a vet.”
MC laughs and pulls him into the tub for that comment
He has so many questions for later, but holds them back in this moment to just let this whole situation sink in
For some reason, MC insisted they go to the beach
No real explanation
MC would only say that there was something she wanted to show Jaehee
It was a warm and sunny day, there were plenty of people, but MC dragged her to this perfect little hideaway beach where no one else could see them swim
MC dragged Jaehee in once they’d set up camp and they swam and played and eventually MC coaxed Jaehee down into the water so that she could see her bottom half clearly
Jaehee was so startled she had to go up for air
MC shyly peaked her head up in the water and Jaehee could see how nervous she was and calmed down
They go up to the beach, but sit so that the ocean comes up to the hips
They talk, Jaehee feels MC’s tail and asks questions about mermaids, a kind of child-like curiosity in wanting to know about her people
MC was just relieved Jaehee was so accepting of her and still wanted to be with her
It was always interesting to him that MC knew so very little about popular media and some common social norms
She had a phone, of course, but she’d seemed surprised when he turned on the TV one day, and half the time, electronics seemed to confuse her
Of course, it was adorable watching her flounder and ask for his help
she also seemed to eat a lot of fish
Then, one day, a woman showed up while they were on a date
She and MC went off privately a little and fought about something, the other woman trying to force something into MC’s hands
When MC came back, she told Zen there was something they really needed to talk about
He almost didn’t believe her when she explained that she was a mermaid, but she had purposely transformed for him, and he was… well, he was in awe
MC also awkwardly explained that she… well, she made a deal with a Sea Witch, her sisters are scared she’ll never return to the ocean and die, like fable of the Little Mermaid
MC won’t as long as she pays the Sea Witch off or… uses the blood of the man she loves to null the contract all together
MC assures him that paying the Sea Witch is already taken care of, so he doesn’t need to worry about that
Zen still worries that her sisters will come try to kill him, but MC assures him that they know better than to try
When MC told him, he thought she was joking
Seriously, if she was a mermaid, how did she have legs now?
Well, MC explains that mermaids can leave the sea for long durations of time, but eventually have to return for a year (or five) in order to live
Thank goodness for modern amenities, however, as she is able to mix up a makeshift saltwater bath, dip in, and prove it
Jumin’s face suddenly darkens and asks if she has any skins that she needs to wear to transform or if she has a mermaid husband, but MC quickly tells him he’s thinking of selkie and he has nothing to worry about
MC is very impressed with his knowledge of mythology
Then again, he reads a lot of… let’s say, interesting, books
She assures him that, because she can mix up a salt water bath whenever she needs, she can and will stay with him
That’s all he needs to hear
He sets up a few precautions to protect MC, intends to keep her secret secret, and does some research
Jumin discovers online that mermaids like shiny things, so he buys MC a ton of shiny things and she goes nuts for it, which makes him happy
“I always thought there was something fishy about you!”
Omfg, Saeyoung, not now. Get that stupid grin off your face.
Btw, he walked in on her in the tub with her tail hanging out the side
On the surface he takes the whole thing surprisingly well, cracking jokes, asking questions
“How long have you been a mermaid? Can you breathe underwater? Do you have a pod or a pet dolphin? How deep underwater can you go?”
On the inside, he’s planning/panicking
How is he going to hide her secret and protect her? Because he certainly didn’t know mermaids existed until now
MC is honestly surprised by his apparent enthusiasm
They end up having a long, semi-serious conversation about her being a mermaid, how they can hide it, and who they should and shouldn’t tell
Then they talk mermaid stuff, like how she never gets pruney, she doesn’t need air because she has gils, and what prompted her to leave the sea in the first place
Honestly, the moment V heard that MC was a mermaid, he didn’t believe it until she showed him by dragging him to a secluded beach
And the moment he saw her, he just wanted to take her picture
So he did, catching a gorgeous shot of her tail catching the light just right and the ocean as a backdrop
That was the only picture V took, he made one print of it, and hid the film
The only people who would ever see the picture were himself and MC
The picture was too beautiful to destroy, and V itched to take more, but never would to protect her secret
MC is honestly surprised at how well he handled everything
V really likes the sound of her singing, but she has a bad habit of singing sea shanties, so he can’t help but laugh at the stereotypical mermaid things she does
When he found out, Saeran was so scared she was going to leave him to return to the sea
MC assured him she wasn’t going anywhere, but he was still scared to bits
Besides, MC was a freshwater mermaid and grew by a river and a lake
Saeran ends up having Saeyoung help him build a bunch of water proof electronic devices (including a phone and a smart watch with a tracker inside) for MC so that he can still keep track of her if she goes underwater
As… invasive as it is, the devises also notify her when someone is checking her location
MC ends up showing the devises off to her mermaid friends, who then wish to use valuables they’ve gathered from accidents and wrecks to pay for phones for themselves
She also takes a ton of underwater photos for Saeran so that he can see what she sees
Once they’re living together in a place near a river, he’s so much more at ease
Humans are weird, and when you get the chance to get to know one and understand them better, you take it. But there are rules about interfering with human affairs, and breaking them might come at a higher price than you were willing to pay.
had been one of those nights that Yoongi couldn’t take a moment to collect his
thoughts, just had to keep working until the bar closed. It was packed all
night, and by the time it cleared out he was exhausted and his feet hurt. But
he wasn’t in a bad mood, unlike some other nights that this happened. He was
looking forward to buying ice cream and meeting you under the pier.
I’m out.” He said to Jimin when he was done cleaning up.
yet, you’re not.” Jimin said. “There’s some girl here to see you.”
frowned at Jimin. He didn’t remember anyone telling him they were going to stop
by his work, and couldn’t think of a reason for them to.

she was here, but she just said she was here to see you.” Jimin gestured toward
the front of the restaurant. “She’s over there.”
sighed. “What kind of person wouldn’t even give you a name—“ He stopped talking
as he walked closer. You were sitting, staring at your toes—something you
definitely did not have last night—wiggling them in wonder.
you know her?” Jimin asked quietly, putting a hand on Yoongi’s shoulder.
I just—I don’t know what she’s doing here. Give us a minute, okay?”
nodded, and Yoongi made his way over to you. You noticed him approaching, and
smiled brightly at him.
I was so worried that maybe you weren’t here tonight, or that you didn’t want
to talk to me, or—don’t faint.”
must have looked dizzy—he felt dizzy—and he sat on the bench next to you.
you’re…You’re not…You have feet.” Yoongi had just come to terms with you being
a mermaid, and now he finds out that you aren’t one? It was all a little
know, isn’t it horrible?” Your smile had faded.
Yoongi really didn’t understand what was happening.

Doesn’t make sense.” Yoongi said weakly.
anyone’s parents make sense?” You asked, raising an eyebrow. “I think he’ll let
me return to the sea soon, but I don’t know what to do until then. I was hoping
you could help me?”
people might have accused you of lying about being a mermaid in the first
place, that perhaps this was all a scam. But Yoongi knew deep down that wasn’t
the case. He had seen the complete wonder in your eyes as he talked about
living on land, had even touched your
tail. There was always something so genuine about you that he didn’t question
course. What can I do?”

assured him, and Yoongi frowned down at your feet.

but it’s safe. I’ll sleep on the couch, I don’t mind. You’ll need shoes. And
some actual clothes. This—“ He pulled the sleeve of the bathing suit cover.
“Wouldn’t work even if it did fit
shook your head. “I hate to ask all of this from you, Yoongi. I’ll pay you
back, somehow. I promise. Also, what’s a couch?”

decided that you didn’t particularly care for the strange things humans wore on
their feet called “flip-flops.” Not only were they difficult to walk in, they
kept falling off.
I have a moped but I walked today… It would have saved your feet some trouble.”
that a kind of shoe?” You asked, slipping your foot into the flip-flop for what
felt like the millionth time that night.
laughed slightly. “No, it’s a motorized scooter…” When you stared blankly at
Yoongi, he tried a different explanation. “You know what a bike is, right?” You
nodded, noticing something shiny on the ground and picking it up to study it.
I see those a lot along the beach all the time.”
kind of similar to that, in a way. But you don’t have to pedal it, and the seat
sounds strange.” You said, flipping over the shiny thing. “What is this?” You
asked, holding it out to Yoongi.

kind of things?” You asked, walking ahead of him. You had no idea where you
were going, so Yoongi didn’t know how you were so confident in the direction
you were walking in.
shoes, food… Most things.”
nodded thoughtfully as Yoongi caught up to you, then you reached over and took
his hand. You turned it palm-up and placed the quarter in his hand, closing his
fingers around it.

shook his head, trying to return the coin to you. “You should keep it, you
now I’m giving it to you.” You said, shaking your head. “I have to pay you
couldn’t help his laugh. “You really don’t. But okay, if that’s what you want.
Thank you.” He pocketed the quarter. “This is where I live, by the way.” He
pointed to a tall house, painted a dark blue. It looked fairly well taken care
of, but old, and there were patches on the roof.

Jungkook were playing a video game, elbowing and shoving each other on the

when he saw you, which made Seokjin look up as well. “Oh.”

said, and Yoongi’s eyes widened.

going to need the couch.”

in that case, welcome.” He stood, walking over to you with his hand
outstretched. “My name is Seokjin, that’s Jungkook, and I can introduce you to
everyone else in the morning. There’s food in the fridge if you’d like some,
and let me know if you need anything.”
leaned sideways toward Yoongi’s ear. “What’s a fridge?” You half-whispered.
a box that keeps things cold.” He replied, just as quietly. When Seokjin raised
an eyebrow at him, he nodded his head to the side, indicating for the two of
them to step away from you and Jungkook. “Can I talk to you for a second?”
who is this girl?” Seokjin asked, watching as you walked over to the tv and
tapped the screen.
I owe a lot to. Is it okay if she stays here for a few days?”
glanced from you and back to Yoongi. “Did I hear her ask what a fridge was?”
sighed. “She’s not… From here.”
Why are there small people stuck in a box?” You asked, and Seokjin gave Yoongi
from here? Where is she from then?”
Seokjin. It’ll only be for a few days, I promise.” Yoongi said, avoiding the
question. Seokjin was the owner of the house’s nephew, and had complete power
to kick out anyone he wished.
already pretty full, Yoongi. Seven people in one house is a lot, and you want
to add another?” At Yoongi’s silence, Seokjin sighed. “She doesn’t have
anywhere else to stay?”
shook his head. “I’m the only person she knows here. I can’t just leave her on
sighed, looked up at the ceiling, and then back at Yoongi. “Okay. A few days.
But then she either has to start paying rent, or move somewhere else.”
Seokjin, I owe you.” Yoongi looked over to where you were now sitting with
Jungkook happily eating Doritos. He caught you eye and smiled. “Come on, I’ll
show you to where you’ll be staying.”
Yoongi found some of his clothes for you to wear, laying them on the bed as you wandered around the room.
“Being up this high doesn’t bother you?” You asked, looking out his window. It was only on the second floor, and heights had never particularly bothered Yoongi.
“I guess I never thought about it.” He said, glancing up as you stepped away from the window. “I’ll step out while you change, okay?” You agreed as he stepped out, pulling the door shut behind him.
Yoongi waited for what felt like forever in the hall, and was about to knock on the door and ask you if you were okay when he heard you scream.
“Are you okay? What happened?” Yoongi asked, opening the door and hurrying in. You walked out of the adjoining bathroom to look at him, your eyes wide. You were wearing his jeans and a hoodie, which already looked a bit strange because they didn’t fit. But you were also wet, as though you had been standing in the rain.
“Is everything alright?” Seokjin asked, peaking into the room, concern on his face.
“You have a waterfall in your house.” You said in wonder, pointing to the shower that was still running. Yoongi hurried past you to turn the water off, and sighed when he saw Seokjin’s face.
“Everything’s fine.” He said, walking back over to shut the door on the older man. “Good night, Seokjin.”
Yoongi only hoped that he could either think of a reasonable excuse for you in the morning, or that you would be gone soon. He guessed that too many questions probably weren’t the best idea for a once-mermaid-now-human who was trying to appear normal, and he was determined to help you. It was the least he could do after you saved his life. It was just going to be a bit complicated, that was all.
A/N Yay I updated finally! I was thinking about updating Disposable, but then I decided to update this instead. I only semi-proofread this, so I’ll check it again in the morning if I get the chance. Thank you for reading, I really appreciate all the positive feedback I’ve gotten! You all mean so much to me. <3 As always, let me know your thoughts and feelings on this! Reader might have a hard time fitting in, as well as convincing her father to let her return to the sea! <3 <3 <3
Selkies are Scottish mermaids! But with seals! Because seals are the cutest. They’re seals who can take off their skins and become women and walk on land. The story usually goes that some arsehole steals her sealskin so she cannot return to the sea and is stuck as his wife until she can pilfer it back. I mean there’s always some guff about “oh i’m so in love with her I want her to stay” or whatever. In my book, you steal the sealskin, you’re an arsehole.
Anyway, whenever I see selkies depicted in art and stuff they almost always turn into the predictable leggy supermodel who emerges from the sea having left the blubber hidden under a dead jellyfish presumably? And I think “nope. that’s not what a seal would look like if it could turn into a woman. no. it would look more like me.”
WHAT IS UP EVERYONE ONE!?!?! We are one month away from the premiere of the long awaited and anticipated Descendants 2!!!!
And to celebrate this blog will be posting so much more then just fics. Hence the picture you are seeing above.
Let’s get started shall we?
To start this month of fun I’ve created a design for the daughter of the most famous Sea Witch, Uma.
I love the way this design ended up looking. It’s simple but when you look closer you see the sea accents. Same can be said of Uma but more on that later.
The steps are simple:
I first of all started with a base nail polish to keep my nails healthy. Then after that was dry I did a thin layer of a white base color to help the neon polish pop (that’s a little tip, want your neon nail colors to really glow add a white base 😉 you won’t be sorry). The next step is applying two coats (one at a time, let it dry between coats or things will get messy) of the turquoise/blue polish. You can stop there and add the charms or not it’s up to you but I took it one step further. I added a irredentist flakey glitter to add a mermaid look. Also I’m a sucker for glitter.
Now the charms I used are self adhesive. I got them from Sally’s beauty supply store. But similar things can be found in craft store and drug stores that sell beauty supplies.
I added them close to my cuticle area after the nail polish had dried. Once set where I wanted them I sealed everything with a top coat.
Hope this was informative or at least fun to look at.
Be excited guys more stuff to come!
Here it is! The mermaid au! I couldn’t resist sorry! And prinxiety is so fun to write.

Summary: Prince Roman of the Mermaid City and the evil Sea Witch Anxiety must work together to put their differences aside to save the ocean from the biggest threat yet. They might succeed, if they could go five minutes without murdering each other.

Once upon a time, there was a little mermaid. She was young and stupid, and thought that her beauty could get her anything she wanted.
Most of the time, she was right.
But she was wrong where it mattered the most: love.
For the little mermaid had fallen in love with a human. However, the human did not return her love. He was married, and he loved his companion dearly.
The mermaid could not bear the rejection. She tried everything from seduction to dark magic, but nothing could move the human to return her love.
Consumed by jealousy and driven mad with desperation, she did the unfathomable and stole the firstborn child of the human and brought it with her to the depths of the sea.
The human was heart broken, and his vast sorrow triggered a powerful curse to befall the mermaid. She lost everything she held dear and was banished to the deepest part of the ocean.
The little mermaid turned to dark magic for survival. As she grew, so did her magic. It was not long before the merfolk were calling her the sea witch, and coming to her for help in matters of all kind.
But the magic had changed the mermaid, and she extracted terrible payments from the people that came to her. Often, her magic did more harm than good, and the mermaid gained power from the misery around her.
Soon, it was her magic, along with the sea king’s, that was holding the merfolk world together.
Despite the power, the sea witch died unhappy and alone, longing for the one thing she couldn’t have and the one thing that had changed the course of her life forever.
She died unloved.
But this is not her story, this is the story of the infant she stole and transformed and raised in secret in the darkest part of the ocean. The child of the man she had once loved. The child she took care to groom into a nervous, antisocial wreck. She made sure that the child would never be loved, and by doing so, completed her revenge against the one who had rejected her.
The child who inherited the magic and the title of the sea witch after she died.
He was known as Anxiety, and this is his story.
A/n: This is a rather short scenario but i hope you like it. I missed the BTS request too. ALSO, thanks for the praises, i’m making more sf9 post in the future :D Genre/warnings: Fluff and a bit of angst.

Ever since you moved to this new house you took the habit of going to the sea when you are thoughtful. At first it was because of the lack of friends in the new city but still now when you need it you descend the rocks next to the lighthouse and sit observing the waves, and it doesn’t have anything with your friends. Your parents have told you a thousand times not to do such things but you knew it was only their fear inspired by some local urban legend of a kid that fell down the cliff many years ago and never returned. But you are skillful enough to not trip and you always make sure to be safe enough. That’s why you are there, one night more, with the cold shaking your bones but with your heart in peace.
