You should talk more about mermaid AU
yes!! aa so i totally didn’t just plan all this out rn im,,
🌊 alex and hercules are both humans, hercules is the one who drags alex to the beach when he goes surfing (alex likes writing by the beach though, it’s calming!!)
🌊 laurens is a mermaid, deep blue scales, a red stripe off of one fin (blue siamese fighting fish i think?? thanks @ anon for the idea)
🐚 he has a habit of messing with humans, especially alex. this is usually just having the water grab at his ankles or ask the fish to bug him
🌊 lafayette is also a mermaid who hangs with laurens and tbh thinks he’s silly for being so interested in humans (he can’t help but admit these two are kinda cute tho…)
🌊 thomas (royal beta fish i think?) and james are those Bitchy™ merms
🐚 thomas also likes messing with humans except he like actually fucks with them
🐚 james is kinda indifferent about humans so he usually just sticks with thomas when he’s lowkey almost killing surfers/divers
🌊 laurens, laf, thomas, and james are all apart of a pod and washington is like the leader™
🐚 hes highkey annoyed with all of them cause they keep messing with humans like stop !!! it !!! stop !!! attracting !!! attention !!!!
so there’s obviously more to this but im not sure where i wanna take it rn 0: i tried to leave it open ended so multiple ships have the potential to work with it though!!
