The Human Fish 9Chapter 9: The Mer Siblings, And A Meeting With The ParentsThe Human Fish 9 by uglygosling
Stephanie's second night at the Sutherland Express was not to pass without interruption. It was after midnight, everyone had long since turned in for the night, when we were jolted awake by a loud crash directly overhead, followed by a softer thud to the side.
Needless to say, everyone was thinking 'What the Hell was that?' or words to that effect. Some Mers swam up to the netted opening in the roof of the hold, but could see nothing from there. Other Mers including me swarmed up the funnel opening into the open ocean to investigate, despite the risk of attack from foraging sharks.
It didn't take long to find the cause of our interrupted slumber. A single engine plane was found near the bow,upside down and with one wing broken off. Several mermaids swam up to look inside, and were horrified to find four peoplw within the aircraft's cabin. Out of desperation, and with no time to get the victims to the surfa

Chapter 65: Cold Salvation
The Piscien Noitas of the Kenovani pod, the Holsien Noitas of Olaroc’s clan of reptiles, and the unbeknownst Amnien Noitas on the other side of the Sazae Graveyard all wave and dance smoothly in their movements to bring the tide of the ocean up to an unnatural level of height.
The otter Noita and her half-bear daughter focus as they find difficulty in this cast and craft under the untrue evening of the eclipse. This Noita has sensed the presence of a familiar aura – the son of an ally of theirs, belonging to Noita Umiato of the Piscien merfolk. Though what he could be doing here, of all places, when she can’t sense any Piscien pod anywhere nearby, is anyone’s guess, but doing a friend a favor by bringing the ocean high enough to safely bathe him during a Black Sun is the least she can do for an old friend.
And then there’s another reason for her being here and doing this. She senses the soul of another familiar merfol

Even before I broke surface Stephanie was reaching for me, the moment she touched my head so she could relay her thoughts she sounded truly scared.
[I can't breathe!] she thought.
The moment I did surface and opened my eyes I saw she looked just as scared too, it was evident she did not yet realize what had just happened to her. A momentary glimpse was enough to tell me what had happened, and what I needed to do. Ducking back under, I yanked on her arm, causing her to lose her balance and fall into the water. A dense cloud of bubbles immediately hid her from view, and had me wondering for a few seconds what might now be happening. When the bubbles cleared I took Stephanie by the forearm and asked [How do you feel now?]
[Much better, thank you!]
[You're welcome!] I answered with a smile.
[As soon as the mind meld ended, I suddenly felt like I was suffocating, and I got so scared...]
[You sounded scared,
The Human Fish 7Chapter 7: A Vader's taleThe Human Fish 7 by uglygosling
We didn't talk much for a while after supper, instead we found ourselves reflecting on the fates of Brooke's parents and the Baby Sisters. As drastic as our own changes were, we also appreciated we were perhaps among the more fortunate survivors.
"How do you manage to keep going as you have?" Diane finally asked Brooke.
"It has been a tough few months, but I think they would have wanted me to carry on as they have" she answered before murmmering a quiet prayer. "Two of the things most important to them was seeing me be happy, and church. Every day I say a prayer for them."
I have never been a regular churchgoer, but I could appreciate her thinking. Besides my brother Steve and his family, many of my friends also regularly attend church.
Brooke in turn appreciated the Flying Penguins refusal to take roleplaying TOO seriously, although portraying Vulcans would have been a decided change of pace for us, and a very different fate

|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.
