The ocean laps lazily at the surf, soaking the sand before it crawls back, crests, and crashes again. It licks as far as the edge of the beach blanket Steve is splayed on – it must be high tide. It’s the hottest day of the year and the sun is a simmering weight on Steve’s shoulders, but it also provides the gorgeous sight of Tony’s crimson scales, glimmering vibrantly in the light. Steve tilts his head back with a content sigh, the muscles of his back working as he simultaneously leans on his one hand rooted in the blanket and tightens his grip on Tony’s hair with his other.

As Spock approaches the tank, Dr. McCoy straightens up to look at him, and the merman completes his circle of the tank, turning to lock eyes on Spock’s.

For a split-second, Spock’s steps falter. He recovers hopefully faster than Dr. McCoy would catch, but the lapse still happened; the alien’s bright blue eyes seem to pierce right through Spock’s skull. His own gaze quickly takes in the handsome cut of the alien’s face, the plush, pink lips curled in a smile, the strong, ripe body arching out towards him, the powerful, graceful movement with which the other being swims to him. Spock doesn’t stop until his knees hit the console and he’s frozen only a few centimeters from the glass, the alien swimming just as close. Spock’s met many other aliens, of course—his current crew is a mishmash of Federation species—but there’s something about this one that strikes him as... particularly special.

Beside him, Dr. McCoy grumbles, “I still say this is a bad idea.” He’s referring, naturally, to the captain’s orders: Spock is to mind meld with the alien prince, all other communication attempts having proven inadequate. Now that they’ve shared their world and technology with the aliens’ representative, as requested, Spock is free to ask that they be allowed to explore the aliens’ home and open discussion for a possible Federation colony on their planet. Spock doesn’t bother to assure Dr. McCoy that he knows what he’s doing, because mind melds with new life forms are always risky—though he had a short meld with an emissary of this species on the planet—and it would be absurd to say that for some completely unfounded reason, he has the uncanny... intuition... that this time, it’ll all go smoothly.

Forced to have the wall between them, Spock presses his hand into the glass, fingers sliding into the Vulcan salute to aid a better mental flow. The alien, eyes unwaveringly trained on Spock’s face, does the same. His slightly-smaller hand aligns with Spock’s, fingers parting the same way, and somehow, Spock is sure this will work even through the barrier. Their connection has already started.

Beyond the Shallows of The Singing Island (2 parts)
While the tones of the siren repelled the merfolk and lured the humans, Grantaire was unaffected by its beauty. It was one of the few benefits of being stuck between worlds as not quite a human and not quite a merman. As such, he spent his days guiding ships away from a lone siren’s temptation. He alone was free to listen to this peculiar siren rant about the oddity of human culture to keep himself sane in his isolation.

Or, a story in which Enjolras is a lonely pescatarian siren, Grantaire is a hideous fish-monster, and both are outsiders finding comfort in human friends.

"It was meant to be a solo quest — Merlin struggling to find ingredients for a spell to save King Arthur’s life — until Gwaine was sent to check on him and decided to stay. Now he’ll follow Merlin to the four kingdoms of the elements and back to the mortal realm, meet his own destiny at the Green Chapel, and become the willing champion of the most powerful sorcerer to ever live."

Turn the Tide - Brumeier - Stargate Atlantis [Archive of Our Own]
The SGC needs to establish communication with merfolk in order to have a successful expedition to Atlantis, and Rodney is the one they put on the job. He thinks the idea is stupid, of course, but as he gets to know the merman he's working with everything changes, and Rodney finds much more than he even knew he was looking for.

Coming Up For Air - Crimson1 - The Flash (TV 2014) [Archive of Our Own]
Leonard Snart is a real up and comer in the crime world. He’s ruthless, clever, and doesn’t care who he has to screw over to get what he wants—because it’s the only way he can get ahead. That is, until he screws over the Santini family. No one crosses Vincent Santini and gets away with it, and Len is no exception. That’s how he ends up with weights chained to his legs, sinking to the bottom of the river.

He knows he’s going to die and that almost no one will miss him. As he passes out, though, a beautiful face appears in front of him. When he wakes up, he’s on the river bank, safe and not dead. The face haunts his dreams that night, whispers of a song and the cold press of lips against his.

Then, Barry walks on shore.

Splash - by yeaka
There’s something about the pretty alien that Jim knows he’s already enamoured with. It’s a common problem of his, particularly when faced with new kinds of beauty, and Spock has a luminosity that he’s truly never seen before. Spock’s eyes flicker back up under Jim’s gaze, and Jim asks before he can stop himself, genuinely curious, “What do you conclude about me?”

Though Jim knows it’s much too early for a full analysis, Spock says simply, softly, “You appear... fascinating.”

Mouth already forming a broad grin, Jim returns instinctively, “Thanks. You’re pretty gorgeous yourself.” Which is hardly an appropriate thing to say or at all what Spock said, but Jim’s a Kirk, through and through. Spock’s cheeks turn greener, the new darkness of skin better framing his iridescent freckles. Spock’s tail twitches, perhaps nervously.

Then Spock wades a few tantalizing centimeters closer, and he leans in, less than half a meter from Jim, and whispers conspiratorially, as though afraid his colleagues would overhear, “Perhaps we could... study one another... more intimately?”

Kirk/Spock (AU, mermen) - by yeaka
He leans closer, mesmerized, as the spindles begin to grow in his fingers, thickening and lengthening the more he strokes them. There’re a dozen of them, all bunched together, draped like decoration, like pretty, greenish curls. They shudder and hum beneath Spock’s fingertips, responding to every little touch. They’re smooth and slick in his hands: a strange, new texture. Jim’s body is all new and beautiful.

James Kirk—or Jim, as he says he prefers—is one of a rare, Federation-sanctioned race, being transported on the Enterprise to a new planet. The others are down in the pools of the recreation deck, but Jim... Jim wanted to ride in the captain’s quarters.

So Jim is sprawled out in Spock’s bathtub, his long, elegant tail like something out of the Terran legends: merfolk from the sea. The top half of Jim’s body looks even more human than Spock’s, but the bottom half is like a fish, scaled and sparkling in the light, immersed in water. Just beneath the surface, Spock rubs over the mass of spindles at Jim’s crotch, and Jim moans wantonly and arches into the touch.

Bucky has a missing arm and a bad attitude.

Tony wasn't picked for the mating season.

They're both in heat. They... may not have thought this through.

✢ The Way Down
Malfoy’s all, “Come out of there,” the way you say to a cat who is badly behaved. And Harry’s all like, “No, what, I’m a hermit! And I have a chest-monster! And I am crazy magically powerful!” and Malfoy’s all, “We all have problems, bub.” (thoughtfully) “You are crazy though. I’ll give you that.” (70,000 words)

Tony Stark and the Artifact of the Hawai'ian Archipelago:
Tony's on a solo flight, scouting out the area around the atolls in the mid Pacific on a mission from Fury to try to find an artifact that no one can describe. Hell, there's not even really a consensus on what it can do. But Fury wants to get his hands on it if he can. Tony manages to get there, but then his plane sinks. Yes, sinks. He'd anchored it off the island's shoreline, since the island itself had no room for a runway, being rather too tiny. And now he's stranded.
Luckily he no longer needs to recharge the repulsor pump every few days.
Giving in to the need, Tony scouts the island. He finds very little that will help him. There are no animals here but small songbirds, so he'll have to find a way to catch fish to eat until Pepper and Jarvis can come get him...

Tony Stark and the Pearl of the Indian Ocean:
Tony's finally properly settled into his relationship with Steve, and he's gotten together enough references to go after that artifact he's been researching for the past month. Hell, he's even getting used to having scales every so often. Things are going fairly well, even if the press has been hounding him more than usual lately and making him impatient to get back out of New York. By God, as much as he loves this city, it really does have its downsides.
It doesn't take long to get the airship fueled up and ready to go, and then they're sailing off toward the Maldives, and all the adventure a man could want. The Pearl of the Indian Ocean awaits!

Bucky Barnes and the Iron Brood:
Bucky decides he wants to make sure that if anything happens to him (again) his lovers won't do anything stupid, like get themselves killed. His solution... well, he's always wanted kids.

Antediluvia - zeitgeistic (faire_weather) - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]

Everyone always forgets about the Merpeople. So did Harry until the day his, Lee’s, and Hermione’s Portkeys land at Reagan National Airport’s Arrivals dais. He’s just had to leave a job he loves and pack his entire life—literally—into his luggage. Then Malfoy and his subplots arrive, and suddenly, saving the world again, one Mermaid at a time, sounds like the perfect excuse to do something he’s always wanted.

Antediluvia - by zeitgeistic (faire_weather) - Harry Potter (H/D Erised 2016)
“Do you think Malfoy’s Airbnb is nicer?” Lee asked, as they waited for someone to answer the door.

“It does have a nice porch,” Hermione observed, tucking an errant curl behind her ear. There was even a porch swing. And there were three decorative tin stars tacked to the wall, all in a row. It was homey.

Their Airbnb, on the other hand, just had a stoop in the front, but there was a bit of garden in the back with a dining set and some shade on the deck, so he couldn’t complain.

“Do you think they have a kettle?” Harry asked. This was obviously the more important question.

Just then, the door opened, and there was Malfoy, giving all three of them a flat stare. “It does have a kettle, yes, Potter, but it’s electric,” said Malfoy. His eyes cut sideways. “Hello Granger, Jordan.”

“Hey, man,” said Lee, stepping inside as if he came over to Malfoy’s all the time.

Malfoy’s eyes followed him narrowly, then snapped back to Harry. “Did you bring alcohol and food? I suspect we’ll need both.”

Hermione held up a case of Sam Adams and Harry held up a bag of Thai. Malfoy stepped aside, and they were allowed to follow Lee in.

“Hello,” Enjolras says when he reaches the edge of the water, sand scrunching underneath his toes. He tries not to look at the man’s lap, blushing.

When the man tips his head up in surprise, Enjolras is met with bluegreen eyes that seem to flicker in the sunlight.

“Me?” The man asks, his voice low and raspy, as if not frequently used. “Hello me?” He looks behind him, as if Enjolras could be addressing someone else.

When A Siren Loves A Human (7 Parts)
Charles is a siren who enjoys drowning and eating humans. Of course, he never expected to fall in love with one...


The concept was interesting? But I guess everything felt way too rushed? I mean, if 25k of mermen can even be rushed, but . . . it felt rushed to me. Or maybe like . . . there could have been *more*?
