the striped one

anonymous asked:

You should talk more about mermaid AU

khuroro said to rucheka: Yes mermaids!!

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!!  

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
