M21 and M24′s relationship


M21 and M24 were first introduced as the antagonists of this manhwa back in season 1. Now that we know that m21 and m24 aren’t as bad as we originally thought, I want to talk about their relationship. They were very good friends. There is nothing surprising with that, but when we compare the relationship other modified humans have/had (especially if they are introduced as antagonists) then we can see there is a difference. Tao and takeo could be seen as exceptions but considering they weren’t very close when they were in DA-5, my point still stands. There is also the trio: tao, takeo and m21, but they befriended after joining the good side so their situation is different.

A tattoo that read nothing other than: Dean Winchester.

You felt your throat close and your eyes sting with unshed tears. You tried to keep your sobs but failed miserably as the sight of the tattoo made your heart ache and at the same time soar like never before. Of all the times, all the moments, any moment, it could appear it now chose to. Now that you doubted you’d ever see Dean again.

A broken smile formed on your lips, despite the tears dampening your entire face. You closed your eyes, almost hating yourself for how you couldn’t stand to look at it anymore. You kept wishing for it to appear any second you were with Dean, you wanted so much to see the expression on his face, to feel what he would at the sight of his name on your wrist but of course that was not the case. It had to appear now that you were held captive and he wouldn’t be able to see it without you being dead that is.

“D” you whimpered, clenching your fists. You moved your arm so that you wouldn’t be able to look at it every moment you opened your eyes.

Who would have thought you’d come to this?

Something that you wanted and waited for so much and now… this.

It was almost hard to believe but even if you didn’t look at it, even when you didn’t think about it, you still felt it. It was if it was alive, something else living within you. You could almost feel another heartbeat besides yours, and it was just as frantic. Just as desperate. And just as broken and aching.

“Dean” you breathed out, your breath hitching on your throat when, as you closed your eyes, you felt his own fear. And you felt the tattoo burn on your wrist, making more tears well up in your eyes.

A soft glow appeared and you let a small whimper at being unable to grasp it and rub your thumb over it, trying to offer some sort of comfort at least. But no, you couldn’t. You were bound.

And only Chuck knew for how long. If not until the end of your life.

Hi loveliesss! I loved your hybrid au post and was wondering if you have any merman Cas fics to share.

Originally posted by cosplay-pants

Why is there so many amazingly written merfolk stories that are completely ruined by the weird and super detailed fish anatomy smut?! For the love of God, why would anyone want to read about a human penetrating an actual half fish? Not that I’m judging you guys who are into this, but really?! I’m just going to ignore those parts in the fics because some of these are actually pretty good in every other aspect :’D
Also HERE is the link to our hybrid au post for those of you who missed it.

Ps. There will be a few tentacle monster Cas fics… because why not

Rating: Explicit

Words: 37,000 – Finished

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★ ★

Admin A’s notes: I am not ashamed to admit that splash was one of my favorite movie as a child and yes, I am that old :’D This has to be my all time favorite merman Cas fic, because A. It was surprisingly realistic while still being a fairytale au. B. The writing was amazing. C. no awkward fish smut that makes an appearance in way too many mermaid fics :’D

Summary: Dean Winchester plans on proposing to his summer fling, Lisa Braeden. He buys a ring, against the advice of best friend Charlie Bradbury, and books a table at an expensive restaurant. Before he can propose however, Lisa breaks up with him. His pride wounded, Dean drives out to the coast, gets liquored up and throws the engagement ring into the ocean. When he goes in to retrieve it, he heads too deep and that should be the end of the story.

He shouldn’t end up back on the shore, coughing up seawater with a beautiful young man tending to him. Dean doesn’t know where this man came from or who he is but he gives him the engagement ring as a thank you for saving his life. He never expects to see the guy again, but two days later he gets a call from the local Sheriff about a strange man she’s picked up wondering naked in town with Dean’s wallet and ring on him.

The guy’s name is Castiel and, much to Dean’s surprise, he’s a mermaid.

Admin A’s notes: I should have known better when I saw the tentacle tag :’D All I have to say is proceed with caution! The only thing that saved this fic for me was the fact that there was no detailed description of Cas’s anatomy! Technically not a merman Cas fic but close enough :’D

Summary:  After the mysterious drowning deaths of three teens, Sam and Dean find themselves in a small town, investigating the possibility of a monster living in the local lake. Eventually, their search leads them to believe they’re dealing with some kind of tentacle monster.

They attempt to take down the creature, but it overpowers them, dragging Dean down into the lake. Sam, distraught, believes his brother is dead, but Dean awakens in a cave under the lake, being cared for by one of the monsters, Castiel.

Even as Sam vows revenge, Dean finds himself falling for the strange creature who believes Dean is his mate.

Admin A’s notes: I wish this was longer, but it was cute nonetheless.

Summary:
 "You can go back if you want- You know, home.“

Castiel turned around to the quiet voice. Dean was standing at the end of the peer, arms self-consciously wrapped around his abdomen and bare toes rubbing against each other. His eyes were sad with an understanding tone- one that told him if he went now he would be forever forgiven but grieved over.

Admin A’s notes: This was just an okay, little mermaid inspired story where both Dean and Cas are merfolk. For me though, there was nothing really spectacular about it.

Summary: For a long time, Prince Castiel’s grotto where he kept all his hidden trinkets and treasures had been his most heavily guarded secret. Now, his biggest secret was Dean, the sweet, green-eyed palace guard, with the freckles. Castiel doesn’t know how to tell Dean how he feels, so instead, he tries to show him.

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★ ★

Admin A’s notes: “Despite his strange appearance, Castiel had something no other sea creature had: a voice that sounded like rocks and sand and corals scraping against each other. It was magic to the ears of undersea life… a sound that pierced through the water like a barracuda, bringing a halt to the slow and monotonous sounds of the sea and a stark contrast to the usually soft and melodious voices of the merpeople. “

Lol sounds beautiful! This line made me laugh so hard (in a good way!)

“I’m the one who gripped you tight and raised you from the depths of the ocean,” Castiel explained.

Never thought merman au could be so canon :’D I swear I don’t care what comes after this, I’m giving it a high rating no matter what!

Summary:  Castiel was a merman who was born with the tail of a Great White Shark. Treated as an abomination by his own kind, Castiel found solace in observing humans and following their ships. He was content with watching them from afar, until he saved Dean, a human prince, from being killed by a shark. Soon, watching Dean from afar was not enough, and he wished to leave his life under the sea for a chance at being part of Dean’s world.

Admin A’s notes: I started this rec with a distant memory of having read some awesome merfolk Cas fics in the past… Seems like it might have been a dream or those fics have been deleted. Now I’m mostly laughing and cringing at the fics that I’m reading for this rec. I hope this is just me and all of you will find these fics amazing… I’m just not convinced yet.

Summary:
 Castiel is everything Dean never knew he was looking for – smart, funny, hot as hell, and definitely, definitely not human.

Admin A’s notes: I have no idea how I’m suppose to rate this fic. At points I thought it was brilliant in it’s own bizarre way, and then there were points (way too often to my liking) where I was literally cringing, blushing and downright appalled as they read it. This rec is so off course that I doubt by the time you’ve scrolled down to this fic, you no longer remember what the ask was even about. I am sincerely sorry!

Summary:  Dean is hired by Zachariah to fathom the new creature he’s fished out of the sea, and that would be Castiel obviously.

Starter for savageblueeyeddragon

Another failure. Seto threw an empty beaker on the ground. Every time he thought he was getting closer to succeeding in creating… whatever it was that he planned to create - what was it? human? dragon? he knew not - he realised that he was further away than ever.

Maybe speciment S-19 would do. It was his last attempt. Then he would quit. He packed up his things and got ready to leave the lab. He’d return tomorrow.
