Though he wouldn't admit it to most people, Seb still likes fairytales.

This is the last page of the week of updates! Back to the regular schedule now.

Wait, you're saying Disney took a few liberties with the story, then? XD

Gotta have that happy ending! Nobody's turning into seafoam if Disney have something to say about it.

Does this world also have versions of The Ugly Duckling and The Emperor's New Clothes (since these stories are by the same author in ours)?

Quite possibly! I don't think this story is 100% the same as The Little Mermaid, but as you say it could be another version. There are also other fairytales that weren't (deliberately) based on real ones that I'm hoping to explore in some form someday.

The story of the selkie/silkie is ancient and wears many disguises, one of my favorite extreme offshoots being "Skeleton Woman" from the Arctic

That's a very interesting title, I think I need to check that one out!

Somebody should make like a modern version with a solution. The guy builds a large enough fish tank where she can live in her mermaid form if needed and then... happily ever after!
Okay, I do not think that would be quite as popular, lmao.

Heheheh, that doesn't sound too fun for the mermaid though! Sort of reminds me of the selkie myths, a sea creature trapped on land is rarely a happy one...

Could probably only work if the mermaid agreed to it as well and lived there during times when she cannot be a human. Depends on how often that is possible though. So overal it simply is an ill fated scenario :/
