Aš nuolat stoju į eilę
Kantriai žengiu koja kojon
Man kvėpuoja į kaklą
Man trenkia plaukais mergina priešais
Čia tvanku ir nejauku
Bet aš vis tiek čia.
Ir taip nuolatos, taip yra visada
Kol galiausiai ateina mintis
Tokia tolima, o vėliau įkyri
Ūžianti ir rėžianti sąmonę
Kad aš visada eilėje, bet niekada

Well Then Go Catch It

It was a day like any other at the Murder Husband Estate, one filled with laughter, warmth, sex, and love.  Will had just gone out for a run with the dogs before dinner and after a quick kiss, while Hannibal began to roast a duck in the oven. 

Hannibal contentedly sat with a cup of tea in one hand, admiring the view of their yard in the early dusk light.  The Thai basil was coming in nicely and the scent of the wisteria, which steadily wrapped itself around their pergola, delicately floated in.

All seemed perfect, and to further this current state of perfection, Hannibal indulged in one of his most favorite hobbies.

He smiled and walked over to their kitchen junk drawer – which in the Lecter-Graham household was still neater than any other junk drawer had the right to be – and took out one of their burner phones, a whistle, and a small voice changer that Will had bought as a gag gift for Hannibal (Will liked to recite dirty limericks into it, while naked, which always caused quite the chuckle in Hannibal, but that is another story).

Hannibal hummed a bit of Smetana’s “Moldau,” took another sip of tea, sat down at the kitchen table, and began to dial.  It rang once, twice, and then her familiar voice came through the line.

“Hello?”  Alana said.

Viena mergina man parašė, jog kai perskitė mano jautrų komentarą pamanė, jog esu nuostabus žmogus. O mano atsakymas buvo toks: “Kuom aš galiu būti nuostabus žmogus? Nesu kažkuom išskirtina, neturiu ypatingų galių. Esu tiesiog žmogiškas žmogus. Dabar retai rasi žmogišką žmogų. Visi sužverėję, sulindę į savo pasaulius ir net nenori bendrauti.

“If we see any mermaids I’m gonna ask them where their mer-ginas are”

Poor Unfortunate Souls  (1/?)

Also known as The Epic Tales of MerGina and waterlogged Robin, this fic was inspired by this wonderful manip by the very talented startscythe and requested by my darling lillie-grey, let me know what you think and if it is worth continuing (FF link):



The Saviour & The Thief

She watches the ship from afar. She shouldn’t be at the surface, her mother would kill her if she found out, but Regina has always been curious about the human world. “You’re a mermaid, you’re not supposed to be curious, you foolish girl, you’re supposed to lure them towards the rocks so they will drown before they can hurt us. Until you understand that, you will not go up there.” Cora had said. 

Regina has no idea why Cora hates the humans so much, although she heard rumours that her mother once loved a man, long ago before she married Regina’s father, and was rejected when he realized who she really was. All humans can’t be like that, Regina thinks, before narrowing her eyes at a commotion on the boat. A man is being shoved on a plank over the edge, his hands and feet tied. One final violent push and he falls into the water. 

Regina doesn’t even take time to think about the consequences and swims swiftly towards the drowning man. She grabs him under his arms and races to the shore as fast as she can. She tries to keep his head out of the water despite the added exertion it demands. Finally, they’re on the sand but he isn’t moving and Regina doesn’t know what to do. She shakes him hard and sighs in relief when he gasps and splutters, spitting out the liquid he swallowed.

She helps him to lie back down, droplets falling from her long ebony hair on his face. He looks at her then, his eyes are the colour of the sea she just saved him from and she knows she is lost. He smiles, his hand cups her cheek. “I owe you my life, Milady. What shall I call my saviour?” He asks, his voice hoarse and rough. Her face falls as she tries to reply but remembers she can’t, Cora took away her voice until she learns her lesson and decides to act like a real mermaid should. 

She shakes her head sadly and seizes his hand to put on his heart. “Milady?” He calls back as she moves away and back in the water. “Milady, will I ever see you again?” He shouts but she can’t bring herself to look back.

Blogging about Mergina’s.

Steller’s Eider (Polysticta stelleri)

…a species of sea duck (Merginae) which breeds along the Arctic coasts of eastern Siberia and Alaska and winters somewhat farther south in the Bering Sea, northern Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea. Like other members of its subfamily Steller’s Eider is a diving specialist, diving considerable depths to feed on crustaceans and molluscs. 

As you might have guessed both the common and species name of P. stelleri commemorates Georg Wilhelm Steller.

Brazilian Merganser (Mergus octosetaceus)

…a Critically Endangered species of typical merganser (Mergus spp.) that is native to central-south Brazil and adjacent regions in Paraguay and Argentina. Like other mergansers M. octosetaceus is a predator and feeds mainly on fish, using its serrated bill to hold on to its slippery prey. Brazilian mergansers are also known to eat molluscs and insects as well. Brazilian mergansers typically feed in groups and will catch fish by diving. Brazilian mergansers are typically seen near rivers and streams with rapids and excess vegetation. 

Currently Mergus octosetaceus is listed as Critically Endangered. This is mostly due to the fact that they are very sensitive to habitat degradation and loss due to human actions. And as such silting of rivers is becoming a major threat to their survival.
