This was my submission for the @MdzsRbb, and also a very belated #mermay. Read the piece @angellovingstar wrote for it below! Image
This piece is special to me because itโ€™s the first piece of art Iโ€™ve created in over ten years, and I spent a total of 101 hours working on him! I low key love how you can see me figuring it all out in this timelapse!

Here goes my first-ever contribution to #mermay, in combination with #WarprizeJiSeason!!

Lan Wangji wakes as he is jostled down into a hard, uncomfortable box. He blinks, trying to clear the grit from his eyes, but his vision remains fuzzy. His chest heaves, and his skin burns.
He cannot breathe. He can hardly turn his head, let alone move his arms. His mind fills with screams of agony, with the memory of blood in the water.

He wishes he had not woken.

His fin scrapes dry, rocky dirt.

"Careful," a human voice snaps nearby. "Don't damage it."
Hot, rough hands against his scales make him flinch, and he bares he teeth. The hands retreat.

"I'm not losing a hand to this thing," another voice says. "Not for that evil bastard."

"Would you rather lose a hand to it, to him, or to me?" the first voice says.

Title: Call of the Sea
Something for #mermay! #BKDK


Will tag triggers as they arrive.
Izuku had wanted to work at the Conservatory since he was a young child. His mother had taken him to see some of the Mers housed there and had inadvertently set him on a path of conservational science.

Finally getting the job meant that all of his hard work had paid off.
Now, he was part of a team of researchers, doctors, caretakers, and conservationists that were all dedicated to the Merfolk that populated the waters of the world.

The Yuuei Conservatory was one of the largest on the planet and the most prestigious.

#mermay (sort of) #sirenji #WangXian

(LWJ is a descendant of a siren but he tears his vocal chords every time he uses the sirenโ€™s song. He uses his voice to help WWX battle resentful energy during the war.)

Sirens rarely get their own happy endings. They are either coveted or
feared for their power but they canโ€™t let go of their power because it is the only thing that protects them.

LXC and LWJโ€™s mother is a child of a siren and a human. So the twin jades are descendants of sirens. However, since they had more human blood than siren blood in them
their powers are very limited. Meaning, whenever they use their siren powers, there are repercussions. Their bodies are not made to handle a sirenโ€™s song.

Their mother thinks that with such little siren blood in them, maybe they can be spared from the tragic fates the sirens are

#mermay #pregjiseason

Now, stay with me on this.

I'm thinking that WWX is a marine biologist who meets Merji while studying some type of warm-water zooplankton.

Obviously they fall in love, because they are weird and the cross-species thing is not an issue for them!
After some careful investigation of Merji's body (๐Ÿ˜) WWX determines that his new boyfriend qualifies as a mammal!

This is all very interesting as a scientist, and he takes lots of notes. Now, he won't ever publish anything about mer-creatures, obviously!
Because then Lan Zhan might end up in an aquarium tank somewhere!!

But WWX is a scientist at heart, so he's very interested in many things: what kind of fish Lan Zhan eats, whether he hunts near the shallows or in deeper water, how often he comes to the surface to breathe, etc.

Okay, weโ€™re doing this. In my head this fic is alternately called Castaway!wwx or Late for the Sky. Bc I was listening to my dadโ€™s copy of said Jackson Browne album on vinyl on repeat while thinking about this fic. I wanna say it was like three months into the pandemic jsyk.
Some background: this is a modern with magic AU. There are cultivation sects and all major characters are around/in roughly similar places to canon. Wwx grew up with the Jiang and got both a cultivatorโ€™s and normie education.
You sort of pick whether you pursue magic or mundane professions in this AU. Cultivatorsโ€™ relationship with the rest of the world is super similar to canonโ€“in that people know who they are, what they do, and ask them for help.

1/? Ryan saga megathread.

Ryan is a supremely wealthy penguin with a bangin sense of style. His adventures are becoming spread out across the cryptoverse and I decided to compile them here for easy access for his fans.

#ryan #penguin #xtz #tezos #adventure #nft
Ryan began with a drawing I made in MerMay, skateboarding Ryan:

Black tie renegade!

I had a lot of fun drawing Ryan, so I thought I'd make a little project on #hicetnunc featuring him. This was the first piece of the project:
Fabulously wealthy as he is, of course he has a gigayacht. Ryan is always trying to make new friends! Image

(a #sheith mer AU for #mermay feat. mer!keith and human!shiro)

Keith waits behind his normal cluster of rocks for the human to come into the cove. He's not supposed to be this close to shore, much less at the surface, but the sky has always called to him.
The man who comes to swim in the sheltered cove every other day calls to him too.

Keith bites down on his bottom lip, sharp teeth digging in as he cranes his head, watching the shore path. There's a smaller group of rocks closer in that he could potentially hide behind.
Checking the path was still empty, he decides to risk it. His tail splashes softly as he takes off, black fin tips shimmer in the morning sun before disappearing back below the water.

Keith surfaces behind the grouping of rocks. They're smaller than the ones he usually shelters
