The Human Fish 1 (take 2)Chapter 1: MilestonesThe Human Fish 1 (take 2) by uglygosling
The next few weeks following my discharge from the hospital and our return to the Sutherland Express proved to be considerably less eventful, at least for Diane and me and those closest to us. We were relieved; while many of us were actually coming to enjoy our new lives as Mers and liked that they were often proving more interesting than our old lives had been, we did not want things to get TOO interesting. Certainly being kidnapped or getting shot to something akin to swiss sushi were two forms of 'excitement' we would all gladly do without!
Many of us took the lesser frequency of particularly memorable events as another sign that we were finally settling into our new lives and were more ready than ever to consider what we might do in the future. Even with the experience some of us had already had, we continued to be amazed at the opportunities that awaited us as Mers. Indeed, the more we looked and thought, the longer the list of possibilities see

We had to wait about nineteen hours for our rescue. The first sign that succor was at hand was when the Crockett’s tumble was slowed to a stop and she was firmly clamped to a larger vessel. Then Vennick, those surviving officers who could be spared and myself on crutches stood ready at the main airlock. Holt was not happy with me, but I figured that my passing out and falling over would be only a minor indignity; if we were rescued by friendlies. If it was a Free Worlds ship, well, resistance was out of the question and there would be no one to remember that the captain fainted before being shot.
I couldn’t have been more pleased when the hatch slid open to reveal Winslow, my old commanding officer with an escort of marines. I saw almost immediately, however, that there was something dreadfully wrong. Winslow appeared to have aged decades. Worse yet, he had a look that told me he may not have been e

The news that Diane was for the time being at least pretty much as confined to water as the Silent Sisters or Natalie were was a bit frustrating for her, but not overly so. She recalled that her sister Jill had been subject to nausea and morning sickness during both of her pregnancies, but the symptoms had stopped early in her second trimester both times.
[If all I have to do to avoid morning sickness is breathe water only for the next month or so, I guess I can live with that] she told Natalie, Jackie Blue, and me that evening.
[And I will help you any way I can] I told her. I also gave her the same reassurance the following morning when she again expressed her mild frustration at how air gave her nausea.
[Thanks. I guess I'm going to get more of an idea what it is like for Natalie and the Silent Sisters] she said, remembering that they presumably would never be able to breathe air again and
The Human Fish 2Chapter 2: Life of a Mer FamilyThe Human Fish 2 by uglygosling
The Sutherland Express being the small town it had become since we Mers had taken up residence there, it did not take long for the news of Diane's pregnancy to get around. Hannah, Tara, and Ana were all quick to offer their congratulations, Diane's unusual circumstances did not seem to bother them at all. They were also impressed when Diane told them that she was now 'eating for three' and not two as the other pregnant mermaids were.
"Three? We might have to put you on a diet, or you might eat us out of house and home!" Tara joked as she hugged Diane.
"Now, now, it's not like I am going to get THAT hungry!" Diane countered with a smile. "And think of all the 'trees' we have planted the last few months, and the fish living there now."
We made sure Natalie was also among the first to know. Being the curious Mer that she is, she had her share of questions for Diane.
[Will they have tails, or legs?] Natalie was now as conve

|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.
