It was still dark when I awoke and discovered that I was alone.
[I’m out here, in the sitting room.]
I found her sprawled on the floor with the gown the Prefect had given her and a pair of shears.
“What are you doing?”
“I woke up and couldn’t get back to sleep, so I’m preparing my wedding gown. Did you know this establishment provides every suite with a sewing kit?
“I had no idea.”
“Yes. This gown’s gorgeous but much too long. I’ll not be hiding my tail at my own wedding.” She put her fists on her hips and sighed. “It’s not going well, however. I can cut, but I know nothing about sewing. It’s my upbringing. I never wore and hardly even saw a stitch of clothes ‘til we came to Terra, I was eight. I used to whine and complain about having to cover up ‘til it drove my mother to distraction. &

Chapter 40: At Wit’s End
Doctor Kaiser leans on the wall with his arms crossed as his predator-like eyes leered through his glasses at the files that lay on the table. Another scientist nervously fiddles with her notes, fearing that Nigel will snap her head off the very second she opens her mouth, while Keith clinks around with his old butterfly knife, completely calm and collected.
Nigel paces around the room, his eyes full of silent rage as he glances at the surveillance screens. Brimming with frustration and anger, each sight of Adam turning in his sleep, or Merrick looming in his tank, brings him nothing but white-hot fury.
“Well,” Kaiser said softly, “This is getting us nowhere.”
“…” Nigel stopped in his tracks as he looked at the various X-Rays, “And what do you suggest we do, Kaiser?”
“I believe we are up a creek without a with these young men,” The doctor said, “Maybe it is time to begin t

Chapter 39: Reunion
“Ok, if you can please sign this for me?” Adam said as he held out his clipboard for the manager of the Claws & Hammers restaurant, having made the last delivery of live crabs on the first two hours of the day.
“Thank you,” He said as he signed for them, and gave Adam a $5 tip.
“Thank YOU sir, and have a nice day.” Adam tipped his cap to him, climbed back into his cart, and drove back along the dock. He parked the small vehicle along with the other carts, and hopped off. He sighed as he took off his cap to loosen up his hair, before putting it back on. Break time – he’s going to hit the dock for a quick catch for his break before getting back to work.
He walked along the Fish House, when he heard the Captain ranting, “Uh-oh…” He muttered, “Whose in trouble now.” He mumbled.
“Look, I ain’t turning over any of my Fishboys to some fancy-suit flunkies, ya got it?”

Chapter 38: Final Tactic
Daniel inserted his key to unlock the apartment and opened the door, with his other hand carrying in several bulging bags of groceries. Once the door is opened, he takes the other bags to balance out the weight. He walks into the kitchenette, when he spots Jacob on the couch.
“Oh hey, Jakey!” He said, “This is rare, you home before me. What, is the lab quarantined or something?” He scratched his brown hair from an itch before picking up the Double Stuf Oreos from one of the bags.
“I’m glad you’re home,” Daniel continued as he put the bags onto the kitchen counter, “I swear, even on my days off, I’m always busy. Went to the dentist, I barely made it to the blood center on time, went by Payless for some new shoes, and a bunch of other stuff you’re probably not gonna remember,” He chattered as he quickly tucked the groceries away, “So I picked up your

|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.
