    Summary

    “What the fuck? WHAT THE FUCK?”

    The fins on his head flared in panic, serving to do nothing but freak him out more. He jerked away from the water’s edge with a heaving chest only to find Wilbur crouched in front of him, holding him by the shoulders.

    “-reathe. Tommy breathe.” He ordered calmly.

    The boy’s hands scrabbled to grip onto the other’s arms, eyes wide and fearful. “What did you do to me? What did you do to me?!”

    “You need to calm down.” Wilbur pressed as Tommy continued to take great gulps of air. “I’ll explain everything, just-”

    “You turned me into a fish person!” Tommy cried. “Andyouwantmetocalmdown?”

    Or

    Merpeople were little more than legend to world above, but below the ocean’s surface they are far more deadly. The Antarctic Empire is the most powerful country within the sea, and they are desperate to find their missing prince. When they finally find him, Tommy’s life begins to blur the line between fact and myth.

    Summary

    Gingerly, he puts a bit of weight on his bad ankle. He gasps, yanking it back up in the air. Yeah, that’s fucking twisted or fractured or some shit.

    Which is really goddamn inconvenient because his healing is a lot slower with shit that isn’t open wounds. Of goddamn course.

    “Bitch,” he mutters, “fucker. Asshole. Dickhead.” He’s not really sure who or what he’s insulting, but fuck whatever or whoever it is.

    “Oh,” a deep, sleepy voice says above him.

    Tommy freezes. Slowly, he twists his head, looking up at the boulder.

    There’s a guy at the top, curly brown hair, his chin resting on his folded arms. He looks almost normal. Until you get to around his waist, where instead of legs he’s got a goddamn tail. Not a mer tail, oh no. its a goddamn snake tail because Tommy’s luck is just that fucking shit.

    “Hello,” the naga says, his eyes sleepy, but intent all the same, and focused unwaveringly on Tommy.

    This really is the worst fucking day.

    Summary

    There was a deep rattling noise followed by a groan, and Tommy snaps his attention to another panel inside the other tank. This one was parallel to his, and was far enough away that he couldn’t actually see what was inside. This panel didn’t have bars. It was just..Open.

    At first, nothing happened.

    Then, something slipped out of the opening, and into the open water beyond Tommy’s bars.

    He sucked in a breath and backed away a bit as he stared.

    It’s fucking huge.

    Tommy’s frozen for a moment as he stares at the monster with his heart thundering in his ears, and the monster stares right back at him with piercing eyes.

    Tommy blinks, and the monster moves.

    Summary

    "George," he says, breathless. Scared. "I-"

    "You freed the siren." George says. There's no emotion as he says it, and that's how Tommy knows he's really fucked up.

    "George, I didn't-"

    "The siren is gone," he says, a little louder now. "The siren is gone and you're sitting here with a knife and a cut net."

    Tommy's heart sinks.

    or, Tommy, a pirate aboard the Essempi, betrays his crew and frees a siren - as punishment, he's made to walk the plank. Will his grace come back in return? Or will he sink below the unforgiving waves?
