Catchup posting, as previously promised! All prompts from the amazing Maegan Cook.
1 ~ “Chimera,” featuring Ursaety and Amarum’s daughter Aster (those three previously named Misu, Mariatu and Ayame, respectively). She is half Merfolk, half Elven, so I went with the more general idea of a Chimera being a blend of two very different things.
2 ~ “Vintage,” Aster again, with her grandmother’s crown…. though considering what happened in that part of the story, perhaps that’s not the best thing 💦💫⚔💀
3 ~ “Paladin,” someone vaguely Tock-canon. I feel like ‘paladins’ in this case are a divinely-blessed class of warrior loyal to the throne of the Merfolk, who then guard the people in general after Ursaety dissolved the monarchy, led then by her friend Sed, most likely.
4 ~ “Tiger,” also vaguely Tock-canon, perhaps a sea pirate of Sed’s ilk before she joins the rebellion (that would be super duper appropriate, since this prompt was on May the 4th).
5 ~ “Dancer,” probably the most vaguely Tock-canon since she’s got a very fantasy-genre style fin going on, but we’ll say she fits.
6 ~ “Lagoon,” Featuring Amarum and Ursaety again, earlier in their story, at a coastal lagoon – establishing that lagoons are places of truce and negotiation between their peoples. Also, with sword ferns to establish that this is a temperate zone.
….Not sure if lagoons are possible in temperate climates on Earth, but hey, this is Faerie, so liminal spaces especially get to be wherever they want to 🏞🌊💗
