Further to yesterday's speculation as to whether a mermaid is a fish or a person, sexually, The Shark and the Mermaid by Billie Myers nails its colours pretty clearly to the wall. I don't know why this YouTubist has done a video with dogs. In fact, wait a second, dogs, shark, mermaid, nookie? Maybe it was The Vet!
Further to which, after posting the piece of erotic mermaid fiction with fluorescent eggs I movingly analyse below, The Vet asked:
Well, what do you guys think? Will I be able to make the transition from the children's morality market to the convenience store romance section? And, do you like the scene? Helpful comments certainly welcome. I'm sort of new to mermaid romance/erotica....Samantha K wrote:
The writing is good, but some of the dialogue is a bit shifty. Why mermaid erotica?How long is a piece of string?
Arabesque was more fulsome:
Vet, you are a multi-talented genius. How anyone can make such a transition from children and YA to romance is beyond me, but you, sir, pull it off flawlessly.Just like the mermaid. Sorry

and she would like to point out that Seraphim is a male mermaid's name, not a female.Oh yes! I knew there was something odd about it! No, wait a second, was the odd thing that it was obviously a male mermaid's name (the pc term is 'merman')? I think it wasn't. I think it might have been that 'Seraphim' is not a-
She suggests replacing it with something such as Ariela or Lilayn or Monyata, or any other female name.These are excellent suggestions, but since she's his protagonist, I think The Vet should use a name that will make the her stand out from all the other mermaids. What about Kate? Sue? Alice? Marie? Emma?
Otherwise, it is very good (and accurate!)Mermaids really do have fluorescent eggs and no port in a storm
the scene is excellent, very graphic but described in such a poetic manner as to be beautiful.I cried twice
