sharp teeth fish

Inuyasha/Mermaid Saga Xover

~no it doesn’t have a title as of yet :P

yeah I just read Mermaid Saga today and this happened almost immediately after. Go figure. Also I haven’t proofread this yet so mistakes will abound. I’ll edit tomorrow but it’s late right now and I just wanted to share. Plus i’m gonna add more to it like a conversation between Yuta and Inuyasha, as well as maybe a fight with a modern mermaid? :3 we shall see! And eventually I’ll post it on my fanfiction account once it’s finished and edited and everything.

Rated: T

“Dammit, what’s it take ta kill this thing?!”

Rolling to avoid a swipe from a massive clawed hand, Inuyasha righted himself just as the bulbous-eyed creature turned his way. The veins bulging out over its skin pulsed with its rapid heartbeat, shallow breaths escaping from gaping jaws lined with sharp teeth. The stench of fish and sea-water emanating from its mottled green skin was almost overpowering, but taking a few quick breaths into his sleeve, Inuyasha once again set out on the offensive.

With a swing of Tetsusaiga, he’d cleanly hacked off one of the monster’s arms – but despite the gusher of red from the wound, his opponent seemed oddly unfazed. Growling, he lunged out of the way as it swiped with its good arm and nearly caught him in the back. For its size, it was surprisingly limber; Inuyasha watched its movements carefully, senses trained at all times on the girl huddled behind him, wrapped in nothing but his fire-rat robe. Her love of baths had really got them into trouble this time. As blood continued to spill from its wound, he hoped it would eventually slow its movements, but even as he watched, the flow seemed to stop. Even the cuts he’d inflicted on the creature earlier in the fight were already healing faster than any demon he’d ever met.

What the hell was this thing?

Travelers, an Inuyasha/Mermaid Saga oneshot

**Finally edited this and fixed some things. I may add more later, I may not. Also I highly recommend people look into Mermaid Saga - it’s a *gorgeous* series, and I think Inuyasha fans will enjoy it!! It’s an interesting change of pace from Rumiko Takahashi’s comedies, but the characters are just as great as any of her other ones!!

Rating: T (language, violence)

Yas more Mabel!

This time Monsterfalls AU stuff. I like her as an aquatic monster but instead of a mermaid more as a mercentaurn (that’s the word?), to make her more alike to Dipper.

Also, as I said, i would like her to struggle a little more with her transformation, so when she gets mad, she will have this sharp teeth like a rape fish. Also her song will attract people but to eat them.

(she doesnt like that. Dipper is the first one in the list and the only one who can stop her. Grunkle Stan was the 2nd, and Mabel almost lost her teeth that day)

Bestiary - Bogfisher

The bogfisher prefers dim, damp environments such as swamps, marshes, and cave systems. Loose skin, many-toed feet, and needle-sharp teeth have given the bogfisher a dark reputation. More than one tale exists in which a foolish child is pulled beneath the murky waters and then torn apart by the vicious monster. Of course, these tales are mere flights of fancy. In truth, the bogfisher is a shy creature that uses its sharp teeth to catch fish, eels and frogs.

The hurt child will bite you.
The hurt child will turn
into a fearsome creature
and bit you where you stand.

The hurt child will grow a skin
over the wound you have given it
– or not given, because the wound
is not a gift, a gift is accepted
freely, and the child had no choice.

It will grow a skin over the wound,
the hoarded wound, the heirloom wound
you have pried out of yourself like a bullet
and implanted in its flesh –
a skin a hide a pelt
a scalded rind,
and sharp fish teeth
like a warped baby’s –
and it will bite you

and you will cry foul
as is your habit
and there will be a fight
because you’ll take the fight out of the box
labelled Fights you keep so carefully stored
against emergencies, and this is one,

and the hurt child will lose the fight
and it will go lurching off
into the suburbs, and it will cause
panic in drugstores and havoc
among the barbecues
and they will say Help help a monster
and it will get into the news

and it will be hunted
with dogs, and it will leave a trail
of hair, fur, scales, and baby teeth, and tears
from where it has been ripped
by broken glass and such

and it will hide in culverts
in toolsheds, under shrubs,
licking its wound, its rage,
the rage you have it
and it will drag itself to the well

the lake the stream the reservoir
because it is thirsty
because it is monstrous
with its raging thirst
which looks like spines all over it

and the dogs and the hunters will find it
and it will stand at bay
and howl about injustices
and it will be torn open
and they will eat its heart

and everyone will cheer,
Thank god that’s over!

And its blood will seep into the water
and you will drink it every day.

—  The Hurt Child by Margaret Atwood from The Door

It’s a bird, It’s a plane, It’s a plesiosaur!

Plesiosaurs, a group related to lizards, lived in the sea. Although plesiosaurs were not dinosaurs, they became extinct at the end of the Cretaceous, 65 million years ago, at the same time as the non-avian dinosaurs. Plesiosaurs had powerful swimming muscles attached to their expanded shoulder and pelvic bones, and they used their flippers to swim. 

This Fossil Friday is Thalassomedon haringtoni, a long-necked plesiosaur with a relatively small head and many sharp teeth for seizing fishes and other marine animals. This long, flexible neck, with as many as 70 vertebrae, probably helped in grasping such rapidly moving prey.
