(can i do a few of my favorite bloggers? i can't do just one!): ruebella-b and vannadear are magnificent, gorgeous mermaids. asthewheelwills puts up with my ridiculousness and is writing my favorite literary AU at the moment. pinchtheprincess always cheers me on. julibellule and allegoricalrose are the most dedicated fic fans that i know of. perfectlyrose is the nicest lady on tumblr. :D
