The remainder of the Jump was less eventful. Justin continued to mend. Jen was up and about before she really ought to have been, bringing the child to sickbay to show her off to her mother’s mentor. “Her name is Princess Mara Elizabeth of Compass Rose.” The Elizabeth was to honor Justin’s late mother. Compass Rose followed the Rii custom of adding place-of-birth to a royal female’s name. The Marines fought boredom with military discipline and video games. Ari and I tried to enjoy as much domestic bliss as we reasonably could, for we knew it would be a long time before we’d enjoy peace together again.
“I delivered a baby! I must admit, I’m rather impressed with myself.” It was the last night of the jump. We were in the captain’s cabin. Ari sat with her tail curled around the foot of the bed, brushing her hair. I w

Chapter One: Star-Born
I woke to the sound of Ari moaning and retching. My head hurt, every heart-beat was like a trip hammer crushing my skull. My eyes registered nothing but flashes and sparks. As my vision gradually cleared, Ari unbuckled and crawled onto the deck, where she curled into a fetal position.
“It hurts. Everything hurts,” she whimpered.
I wanted to comfort her, but knew that my head would explode like a rotted gas-pumpkin if I moved.
Finally, I opened my mouth. “It’ll pass,” My voice croaked.
“I take back what I said about this being better than vaporization,” she groaned and then started retching again.
Eventually, I made myself check our position. We were less than a hundred thousand kilometers from where we were supposed to be. Not too bad. I then checked on the others.
“We’re alive.” Windridge’s voice sounded old a
Song of the SirenWaiting to mesmerize youSong of the Siren by PantherNight
And reach into the depths of your mind
To captivate your heart
And spellbind your soul
I am patiently chanting my intentions
Beyond the waves of the deep blue,
The ocean that has kept your enduring ship
And your unshakable will company
During storm and sunshine
During calm and rain
Come to me,
Come to me my handsome sailor
And let me show you
What a maiden I am
For my gutsy man

Chapter 33: Meet The Parents
Merrick pushes the loud vacuum cleaner back and forth, brushing the carpet in lines, and leaving the aligned trails of clean paths left by the machine. Now that Adam, Yuri, and Jamal taught him how to use appliances, cleaning utensils, and other such tools, he has a lot more to do around the house.
After pushing the vacuum onto the last patch of carpet, he turned the vacuum off, and began to unplug and coil up the cord. The merman would loop the power cord onto vacuum, before he turned and smiled as Roxas approached him. He chuckled as he lowered himself down, and laid himself onto the floor.
His hand met with the cat’s face as Roxas brushed off against his palm, and rolled onto the floor. Merrick giggled as he dug his hand into Roxas’s fluffy belly fur, and rubbed playfully. The cat mewled in response, and started to lightly kick at Merrick’s hand with his hindlegs. Merrick laughed as he r

|I dont have many rules about submitting but I'd like them to be followed.|
I have it set so people can submit a whole wack of things to the appropriate gallery without a mod needing to vote. That being said:
Do NOT submit things that have nothing to do with our group
DO NOT submit screen caps of the little mermaid, motivational posters that use copyrighted work, or manips of POTC 4 stills and posters etc. All of these things are against DA policy and will not be allowed in the group. The same goes for manips of h20 or any other copyrighted material. We have a wonderful stock folder full of mermaid and mermaid related stock. If you're manipping, please use that.
FEATURED FOLDER is for Admins to feature people, work we feel everyone would really enjoyed, or is under appreciated. I frequently comb through it to take things from that folder and put them in others to keep it fresh.
Now that I've gotten that off my chest, here's how the galleries work:
Traditional= any 2d image created with traditional materials. NOT sculptures, arts and crafts, etc they have their own section to keep the traditional folder from being too big. Likewise, traditional FANART will go to the fanart section, not the traditional art section.
Digital= any work created with the use of a computer, or any work that it's majority digital. Fanart will not go here, it will have it's own folder, again to keep from making the digital uploads overloaded. Photomanips will also not go here, they have their own section.
Photomanips= anything done with photomanipulation. Note: if you include any art theft it'll be removed. This includes lifting images from google.
Photography= here's where we get tricky. If you have an image of you in a tail that you did not make, and you are not cosplaying a character, it would go here. If you have a mermaid related portrait it would go here. This can also be a good spot for mermaid inspired work.
Mermaid DDs= you can't submit here, but if you find a DD that's not already here please leave a comment or send a note so we can request the image in the group
Arts and Crafts= any traditional art that is not on paper. Sculpting, dolls, jewellery, scrapbooking etc
Costumes= a mermaid tail YOU MADE YOURSELF or a mermaid costume that is NOT cosplay (meaning a character that already exists)
World Mermaid Awards= Photos from the first mermaid convention
Merpalooza 2012= photos from the second mermaid convention
Stock= images of mermaids, of water, or of something related to mermaids that people are allowed to use for manipping purposes. This is a good example of a place where you can submit something mermaid inspired as well
Stamps, Icons, Pixels, Etc= pretty obvious
Fanart AND cosplay= any fanart from an existing character and any cosplay of an existing character. I decided to merge the folder because the majority of fanart and cosplay we get is The Little Mermaid, so this is essentially, The Little Mermaid Folder.... anything TLM goes here, regardless of if it's digital, traditional, etc.
Text= anything text based, so text based imagery, literature, fonts etc.
Thanks for your understanding. Im pretty liberal with the group but these are just the basics folks.
Finally, still looking for some contributors to help out.
Please invite your friends.
