Summary: Basically my shitty retelling of The Little Mermaid through TaeKook. This came from the inspiration of @artofennun and @noranb

A/N: Like I said in the summary, this is my telling of this story. I became obsessed with this AU after I saw these incredible artists taekook Little Mermaid au art and screamed my head off. Also, disclaimer I am not as talented as other army fans out there. Please don’t hate me I just wanted to share this TaeKook story. Ok without further ado, here I go.


“Oh no, oh shit are you okay? Please tell me you’re alive.” Taehyung brought his ear to the young boy’s foot. “Oh crap, he’s dead. I couldn’t save him in time. He’s dead and it’s all my fault!” He turned to his friends: the seagull, Scuttle, and the crab, Hoseok. They both looked at him bewildered. 

Before Taehyung could freak out any more than he already had, the unconscious young man began to cough out water. Taehyung immediately laid cross him and cupped his hands around the other boy’s face.

“Oh dear Neptune, are you okay?” The boy beneath him stared up at him dazed. He blinked a few times to adjust to the light in his eyes; he then settled his sight on Taehyung’s soft tan features, bright red hair, and large brown eyes.

“Jeongguk! Prince Jeongguk!” Someone called for the boy before he could properly understand what was happening. Jeongguk turned his head to the familiar voice and Taehyung then hurriedly peeled himself off the prince and rushed into the ocean with Hoseok and Scuttle in pursuit.

“Oh! Prince Jeongguk, what happened? Are you fine?” The older male helped him up.

“I’m fine, Grimsby, but did you see where he went?” Jeongguk looked frantically around for the mysterious male that saved his life.

“What are you talking about? I just barley managed to find you.” Grimsby threw the prince’s arm over his shoulder.

“But he was just here, he couldn’t just have disappeared in midair.” he tried shaking off Grimsby but ultimately failed.

“I’m afraid I have no idea what you are talking about. Come, let’s get you home and dry you off. Your kingdom has been worried sick about you.” Grimsby began to drag Jeongguk to the other direction towards his castle.

Meanwhile hidden behind a rock, Taehyung watched as the prince still searched for his unnamed savior over his shoulder.

Ok, so, whilst writing episode six of OUADT (progress is… slow but encouraging), I started thinking ahead to episode seven so that I can integrate them nicely.

Episode seven will be Ariel’s back story. 

And I managed to put Scuttle the Seagull into it. I swear I didn’t realise until too late and now he is, in typical obstinate seagull fashion, refusing to leave. 

He’s not a speaking part, thank goodness, but still. I am sitting here wearing a hat of shame.
