Mermaids:
    A race of powerful, nearly immortal, magical creatures, mermaids rule the oceans around Iredais. How they came to be is not clear, with many speculating they were once a race of fish that were created by a female mage, possessing both her form and her power while others think they were the product of a curse, with a powerful male mage cursing the woman who spurned him to live beneath the water forever. Regardless of how they were created, they have since ruled the oceans and remained as mysterious as they are beautiful. The mermaids exist in a matriarchal society, with a ruling Queen and women filling all major positions. When a mermaid reaches the age of an Elder, her daughter takes over her position and the mother will join the Conclave of Elders as well as begin teaching her granddaughter about her magical gifts.

Men and Women Talk About Very Different Things With Their Friends
The sound of work filled the air and the people below looked up in shock to discover that the noises were coming from the Yorozuya, for a moment some people considered it likely that the lazy inhabitants had died and Otose was having the place redone to cover up a grisly scene. Then they thought perhaps she had finally kicked them out and was remodeling in order to attract high paying tenants; however all these speculations were dismissed when they saw Gintoki and Shinpachi leaving the building to collect pieces of dark stained lumber that were resting at the bottom of the stairs.

    The streets were filled with laughing children and merry adults as Kagura and I entered the scene, it was time for the annual Tanabata festival and it would be the first our seven-month-old son Ginraku had ever attended. I could not tell who was more excited him or Kagura, because once they saw the bright lights and pretty colors they were lost to the excitement of the event.
    “Mama, Mama!” babbled Ginraku as he squirmed in his mother’s arms, waving his small fists in the air as an indication that he wanted to explore the festival.

Your Friends Are Never Quite the Same When They Come Home From Camp

The mental institution was far more imposing than either Gintoki or Kagura had suspected it to be, and as they stood outside they both briefly considered running back to the safety of their home. The only flaw in that plan was they promised Tae they would take some sense into Shinpachi in order to get him to come home; Tae had requested he be discharged once he showed signs of improvement but Shinpachi had refused to come back. Neither of them wanted to upset Tae, especially now that she seemed even more volatile with her pregnancy.
"Remember, Kagura," said Gintoki as they carefully entered the hospital, Kagura clutching onto his hand for dear li

If ever I were to dream,
I could dream of a million things.
But never could I dream of this, my reality.
Beauty
Stars shine and stars fade.
The sun rises and the sun sets.
The moon goes black and then it is full.
Leaves fall off and come again.
True beauty will never be gone,
just simply comes in phases
in order to be reborn again.

Words are not plenty enough.
Words are not strong enough.

A Girl’s Father is More Dangerous Than Any Trained Fighter
    Gintoki strolled out of the grocery store, a bag full of strawberry milk cartons on his arm as he counted his change, wondering if he had enough to play a quick game of pachinko before he was expected at his next job. That morning he had assisted a photographer who was taking pictures of the wildlife in the nearby forest, he had mostly just carried the fragile and expensive equipment but had received extra pay for providing action shots of some of the more dangerous animals. Honestly who knew that a bear could get so upset by having its nose poked with a sharp stick? It was not his fault, he was just w

    The sun was warm and the breeze gentle as Chihiro made her yearly visit to the abandoned amusement park by her home, seven white roses in hand. She stood at the top of the hill and gazed down at the various buildings, knowing that in a matter of hours they would be lit up like stars, entertaining the spirits on their way to Yubaba’s bathhouse. With a slight smile she ran down the rest of the hill, only stopping when she neared the wooden bridge that connected the bathhouse to the amusement park, although now it looked as if it were connected to a meadow.

Midnight Revelations Require Strawberry Milk
            Gintoki could not sleep, not even after the long, exhausting lovemaking session he had just had which seemed to have put his companion right to sleep though given how she had exerted herself he was hardly surprised. Even after nearly half a year of this ritual he and Kagura were still unable to curtail their activities to acceptable levels of noise, time, and bruises. He smirked to himself, knowing that his landlady and her “daughters” would probably scold him the next morning for the sounds that he knew came from his apartment. He shrugged at the thought, knowing it woul

She was trying to conjure up mental maps of Redcliffe Castle, thinking about where they might end up and where Isolde and Connor might be holed up. Her immediate thought was the family quarters above the throne room, it was the logical choice.

            The next morning Yvaine woke before the sun had truly risen, from her spot on the floor she could see through one of the windows in the ceiling that there were pink streaks in the sky. She laid there for a moment and admired the colors, remembering the view from her old room in Highever, how the same colors used to reflect off of the water looking as if it were part of some dream world. Sighing she quietly sat up and looked around at her companions, smiling to herself: Fergus was curled up in his blanket snoring loudly as always; Leliana w

Prompt: Moonlight
    Kaidan heard small footsteps walking past his open bedroom door, stirring him from his slumber, and as he opened his eyes he was confronted with an empty bed. A painful reminder that his wife was still off righting the wrongs of the galaxy, leaving him behind to look after their home on Earth and their children. The thought of his children and the memory of small footsteps caused Kaidan to carefully tumble out of bed, being careful not to wake his sleeping son in the crib beside him. He went over to his son’s crib and looked in, making sure his nearly one-year-old was still asleep and he could not resist caressing his dark curls, smiling to himself. He leaned down and ghosted a kiss across his forehead before he left the b

            “Neither has a clean tunic,” said Yvaine as she pulled a pair of brown leather breeches and a white tunic out of her large pack that she had left behind earlier. Even though it had been a little over two weeks since her parents' death, she still had yet to go through the bag, not really sure she wanted to see what her mother had left her.

Mermaids:

    A race of powerful, nearly immortal, magical creatures, mermaids rule the oceans around Iredais. How they came to be is not clear, with many speculating they were once a race of fish that were created by a female mage, possessing both her form and her power while others think they were the product of a curse, with a powerful male mage cursing the woman who spurned him to live beneath the water forever. Regardless of how they were created, they have since ruled the oceans and remained as mysterious as they are beautiful. The mermaids exist in a matriarchal society, with a ruling Queen and women filling all major positions. When a mermaid reaches the age of an Elder, her daughter takes over her position and the mother will join the Conclave of Elders as well as begin teaching her granddaughter about her magical gifts.

    Once a young mermaid reaches the human equivalent age of thirteen she is expected to demonstrate her prowess with magic before the Elders, this is to ensure that not only has she received an adequate education but to show that nothing has been lost in the training; each family has different magical properties and it is a heavily protected inheritance, and if a single gift is lost then the family is considered a disgrace. This has only happened once and the penalty was to hand the magic over to the Queen, who gave it to her own daughter, strengthening her family’s magic; the disgraced family elder was subsequently killed afterwards for failing in her duties while her daughter and granddaughter were banished and forbidden from procreating.

     Men do not exist below the water, rather when a mermaid reaches the age of majority, she journeys to the surface and finds a man to mate with, one of good standing and typically exhibits traits that will ensure a capable heir; when she is sure she has conceived, she returns home and give birth to her daughter with her mother and the Elders present. Ordinarily, a mermaid has one child and it is always a daughter, a strong child that will carry on the family’s magic. Should they have another child, by force or by choice, it will be much weaker than the first and likely die before it can bare a child. Given the nearly infinite lifespan of the mermaids, it is seen as unnecessary to have multiple children and to do so is seen as a selfish act and therefore frowned upon. Sons are had on occasion after the first daughter but die at an even younger age than the daughters that follow the first, and often they are born deformed in some way, typically without the signature tail all mermaids possess.

    Physically, mermaids share few characteristics in common: They all have long scaly tails, have a human upper half and a fish lower half, possess gills on their neck, and have slightly webbed hands to make swimming easier. Beyond those common traits, mermaids are as different as humans are in terms of appearance. Mating with humans ensures variety in appearance and nature, meaning that no two mermaids are completely the same. The magic each mermaid possesses does not diminish with time or decrease with each mating, it remains as strong in the daughter as it did in the ancestor, and this is true for all families. One final trait all mermaids share is the ability to walk and breathe on land when their tails touch dry land, this is how they are able to walk among humans and mate. Most mermaids detest going on land and only do so the one time to conceive their daughter, preferring to stay in the water for the remainder of their lives. Only one family goes on land more than once and that is the royal family.

    The Queen is part of an ancient family that has always ruled the mermaids, providing fair and careful rule that pleases her subjects greatly. She is replaced when she reaches the age of an Elder and her daughter assumes the throne at the same time the other daughters do, and she is usually the first to conceive her heir. She is also tasked with negotiating with the monarchies on land, journeying above water every few years to renew the various treaties and ensure peace for her people. Her magic is older and stronger than that of her subjects and to learn it is normally the most difficult part for any princess’s training; and it was especially difficult for the only pair of twins ever birthed.

    The two princesses, Melite and Ocarina, were both strong and beautiful mermaids both capable of their family’s magic and ruling their mother’s kingdom. There were obvious differences of course, aside from the physical differences of Melite having soft wavy golden hair and peridot green eyes with an emerald tail and Ocarina having lush curled warm brunette hair with storm grey eyes and a periwinkle blue tail. Melite was the far more outspoken of the two, bold in her ideas and approach to any task whereas Ocarina preferred to think and calculate what she was going to say and do, making her the far more obvious choice for Queen than her sister. When the day came for the Queen to step down, everyone expected her to hand her crown to Ocarina but instead it was handed to Melite, surprising the vast majority of the kingdom. It was then announced that Ocarina was to be sent to the surface, as Queen of a newly formed nation.

    It was the Queen’s hope that she could extend her kingdom, having a link to both the land and the sea by placing one of her daughters in each; an ambitious plan that many of the Elders disagreed with but ultimately agreed to once the Queen argued that it was the natural progression of their people. Ocarina was then sent off to the kingdom and married to the newly crowned king, quickly becoming pregnant with her first child. When she delivered, it was a healthy baby girl, just as mermaid tradition dictated and Ocarina was pleased with her daughter, her husband was slightly disappointed but soon fell under his daughter’s spell and loved her as much as her mother. Years later, the next child was, to the King’s joy, a son but he was on the sickly side and while his older sister grew up healthy and thrived he remained sick and weak; the children that followed them were of varying states of sick as well, with the girl doing a little better than the boys. The King began to wonder why only one of his children was able to thrive while the others seemed so delicate, but he never asked, because the mermaid turned human queen remained incredibly tightlipped about her heritage and did not give away a single secret.

    Eventually, the eldest reached the age of majority; her brothers had all died by then, her sisters were soon to follow, and her mother was becoming sick as well. The King was beside himself with grief but agreed to his wife’s request to name their daughter his true heir and would be the ultimate ruler of their kingdom. A husband was chosen for her and she became pregnant just as quickly as her mother had; the day her daughter was born, Ocarina died. She had done her duty, taught her daughter about the magic in her blood and instructed her to do the same with her own daughter, emphasizing that she must not leave a single thing out of her education. All while keeping it a secret from her father and husband. Ocarina had even explained why the other children had died, a fact that horrified her daughter but she understood it when she had her first child. Of course, she would have to continue to lie with her husband and have more children, lest she raise suspicion about her heritage. Like a typical mermaid, her power was not diminished and she passed it on to her daughter, again warning her about maintaining its secrecy and when her daughter reached the proper age and all of her siblings were dead or dying, Ocarina’s daughter died and her daughter became Queen.

The monarchy of this new kingdom on land was firmly vested in having a female heir after five queens, and while many found this strange, they brushed it off as the mermaid’s legacy. The Queen always earned her people’s respect and loyalty, striving to improve any situation like her ancestors had before her, and always carrying on the secret magic of the mermaids in order to pass it on to her daughter. Due to the suspicious nature that surrounded magic on the surface, no queen or princess revealed the fact she could do magic to any member of her family, and all made sure to teach her daughter; only one ever failed and it is because of her failure that her daughter was able to flourish.
