Multifandom Merfolk (It’s More Of A Multifandom Marine Life Research Lab)

By Cat22
Within the oceans of the combined multiverse dwell the merfolk. These unique humanoids have the upper bodies of your typical humanoids and the tail of an aquatic creature in place of their lower body. These tails vary in color and pattern depending on the merfolk in question. Merfolk themselves are biologically immortal, show some control over the oceans and have the ability to enter human form once they exit the water. When a merfolk is in human form, they are fully clothed These beings have lived in harmony until they were discovered by human scientists who were curious about the species. As a result, several dozen merfolk were taken from their homes and were brought to live in a research facility. They were all placed in separate rooms that were assigned to them. These rooms had doors on land which could be locked and unlocked remotely. Each room had a large tank in it which was specially designed for each individual subject. These tanks were made easy to climb in and out of so that both the scientists and the subject could enter and exit the water whenever they needed to do so. There has even been other aquatic creatures discovered in the oceans that have been captured alongside several merfolk including sirens, mythical beings said to lure sailors to their doom and other beings of the sort.

I'm gonna create a new character. Maybe an aquatic dinosaur or fish from Subnautica.)
Cat22Firion   22d ago

It was another day in the coastal research facility as there wasn’t yet much activity going on throughout the day although that didn’t stop some of the captured subjects from being rather restless which seemed to annoy some of the other subjects who just wanted to sleep.

Firion was among those who were annoyed and had swam over to the edge of the tank that he dwelled in to see that Tidus was making way too much noise in the day. “Tidus, I swear to gods that if you don’t shut up, I will personally hit you with a Thunder spell! Do you want that!” He growled at Tidus. It was easy to tell by the tone of his voice that he was rather annoyed at Tidus.

Cat22     22d ago

I'm not lost, I'm a stray

Okay.)
Cat22Bartz   22d ago

“He’s always loud… There’s no way to change that. Normally, you just have to deal with it but on other occasions, it can be rather annoying.” Bartz muttered softly. He was sitting right next to the coral that was in the tank with him as the scales on his tail reflected the light that was filtering down from the top of the tank. He was one of the more relaxed subjects out there which was easy to tell by his friendly demeanor and general willingness to interact with people. He had always been rather friendly which meant that he was rather pleasant to work with as well.

She kept swimming around in her tank, accidentally colliding with the walls from time to time, she was beginning to be restless being locked inside her cell, and she had no company, so she was doing her best to get her mind off it

Being one of the only females they had in the facility made her feel lonely, so she would normally daydream of more girls there or have intellectual conversations with herself pretending there was another girl next to her, often confusing the other subjects and scientists
Cat22Vaan   22d ago

((I feel bad for the scientists XD))

“Just let him screech. He’ll grow tired eventually. Besides, it’s always been like that with him so there’s really no other way to combat it except for just waiting it out.” Vaan said. He was slightly annoyed by Tidus’s screeching and only wished for it to stop so that he could get some peace of mind for a short while. He was currently sitting on the bottom of the tank and had hidden himself away in a small cave that was perfect for simply hiding away from the world for the time being.
DingyLunk     22d ago
Protagonist Potential

*the lizard like thing* ((still gotta draw it lol)) *crept across its tank floor seemingly more docile than other days it literally ate a rock off the bottom man this thing is dumb*

She started to talk to herself again, being a bit louder then usual, but she didn’t care that other people could hear
Cat22Tidus   22d ago

((We still need more scientists… The research subjects will cause havoc if there isn’t anyone to prevent them from doing so.))

Tidus stopped being loud after several minutes and very quickly jumped out of the tank. He was still rather bored and wanted to do something to take his mind off of all the boredom that he felt. To do this, he created a small fireball in the palm of his hand and proceeded to play around with said fireball. He was now in a fully clothed human form and was currently waiting for someone to open the door to his room.
