Ariadne sat in the hospital waiting room seeming to stare out the window. Instead she watched the reflection of her husband as he walked away with the Crockett’s escort. [Would watching a reflection count for bad luck?] Finally, she averted her gaze just before he disappeared around a corner. [He is the stronger of us two.]
She struggled to keep from crying, then wondered why. There was no one in the waiting room to see her and why would it matter if there were? Didn’t she have the right to cry? She let go until she felt better, dried her eyes and then glided out of the room.
Ari was ascending the stairwell to Jen’s floor when she was seized with a disturbing thought. [There are women in the fleet, women with legs!] She was aware of the main-line human male fascination with female underpinnings, but she had not really thought about it before. Now, it was making her feel the first twin

Chapter 45: Moved On
Kaiken and his pod swim through the sea, with his mate Umiato by his side, and his daughter, Savarna by her side. And an empty space on his other side that he still has trouble ignoring.
It has been almost approximately 3 years since the banishment of their Merrick. Without the presence of the Adra Triton by his side, Kaiken feels a sense of imbalance – as if his right arm has been severed off. Merrick may have ceased to exist, but there in lies the problem – it has indeed unfurled a balance. It has been so long since he had to instruct his son to pay attention, tell him to KNOW, not GUESS. He still remembers the look defiance when he had to break his son’s own trident in half, as punishment for becoming exiled.
And then there was that human. Kaiken still has no idea why he even put himself on the land in the first place, it’s not like he could’ve go out and look for him – he doesn’t know how to walk. And that h

|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.
