I was fine with the music, then "Words That Changed My Life" came on and i started crying. then came Night Sky/Ever Blue and-I love this blog. its so adorable and awuwuwu -smothers in hugs and treats-

Ahhh “Words That Changed My Life” — I just remember Rin’s choked-up voice and his tears and pain and then Haru reaching out to comfort him and oh man, this OST does things to me. ಥ_ಥ but the melodies are so pretty and I like to listen to them as I draw!

and thank you, dearie!!

I know Rin had the run in with the whaler with the harpoon. But does the Mer Family have any other problems with humans? Or do they live in an area where few humans dare venture?

No, that was just a rare incident! Though the family stays relatively close to shore, there are no villages or human inhabitants near the beach. Sasabe probably stumbled upon the area on accident or got lost before first meeting Haru.

THIS AU IS NOW MY FAVORITE OH MY GOD, IT'S SO ADORABLE. I USUALLY LOVE MY OTP WITH KIDS, BUT THIS IS SO SWEET IT'S GIVING ME DIABETES OKAY. I HAVE TEARS IN MY EYES

Maybe I should’ve added a list of side effects this AU could cause… diabetes, cavities, spontaneous wetness in eyes…… bUT IT’S OK, I HAVE THEM ALL TOO. WE’LL SUFFER TOGETHER.

Thank you...you don't know the huge amount of help you've given me...*a million hugs*

omg, if Haru's the mom, then that whole short story about the shark coming to attack and Haru having to protect the baby could be canon!

this drabble? You’re right……

So there was a surrogate for Mizuko - how did the insemination play out on Rin and Haru's emotions? (your art is adorable and i'm getting sucked into the details of your plot) XD

Ahhh I never said there was a surrogate mother?? ? We kinda agreed as a group not to delve into details of exactly how everything’s possible — though I’ve heard of explanations like the omegaverse that are fairly interesting to think about…

I just like to think that whichever partner’s the “mother,” their child will have the same tail. If we’re talking about their emotions with Haru being Mizuko’s “mother,” I think Haru would be relatively cool about the whole thing (especially since he only carries one while Rin had to carry twins)… which makes sense, since sharks have several pups in a litter while dolphins usually only have a single calf.

Rin would start off all nonchalant, giving Haru tips best he can and all relieved he doesn’t have to go through it all again — but being Rin, he starts fussing over Haru in his typical Rin fashion.

click for full-size please!

I wanted a picture of them all together. uwu

Who is the mother and who is the father oh my im so confused ; n ;

Rin’s officially the “mother” of Same and Zuka… as for Mizuko…
