About Me

My photo
Merlin, The Waters of Mer
I am a teenage mermaid in the city of Merlin in the ocean of Mer. I was born under the sign of the seal, shown by my last name, Sealdotter. My hair is flame red, and my skin the color of milk chocolate. My eyes are a bright, lively purple. I am servant to the merrish princess, Melisande. My best friends are Eladea and Edessa, her ladies in waiting. This is my diary. These are our adventures.


Fourth Day of Sea Lion, Second month of Mammals

Goodness! If only Jas's boat had not sailed today! It is horribly boring, all state affairs and classes and more teas with the royal servetes of the city. I may not write for a while, it is so  boring! It was more fun a a servant instead of a royal servete. We could swim and play, with no thought to royal decorum! None of my old friends are here in this class.
 I am sick and tired of the city circles already. Oh, how I long for a new port, and Jas. Mostly Jas. He was fun to talk to, and a real friend. Next port, we will be able to talk longer, for I shall get him into the water, and off with the ring. Perhaps he will stay forever!


Third day of Sea Lion, Second Month of Mammals

Oh, my goodness! I met the boy today! His name is Jasper. His ring is like ours! Dea went exploring the town while I chatted with him. He was so amazed to see me. I haven't told him about my mer blood, though.  He told me he was connected to the 'blogospere', like I am, though he knows not of this, either. He told me it was here. Really all we talked of was him, and little of me. He is amazingly handsome, with curly dark hair, and olive-y skin. His eyes are a dark blue, bordering on black. His mother died when he was born. She left him the ring and told his father to make sure he always wore it. His father is a twerp. He called Jas away before I had to leave. We have a plan to meet at his next port, which is also amazingly close to a Mer City.


Second Day of Sea Lion, Second Month of Mammals

Dea and I are going to swim to the port tomorrow. It only takes us half a morning, so we will return tomorrow, too. Mel will cover for us.


First Day of Sea Lion, Second Month of Mammals

Sorry about the pause. We have arrived in Frezzere. Today I saw a boat- And on it was the boy with the Ring! It was sailing toward a small port. I am devising a way to meet him in the port!
All is well in Frezzere, and the suromer has behaved well. More tomorrow!

Suromer- a surrogate ruler for mer cities


Still unknown date, Second Month of Mammals

Here, FINALLY is the diagram of the city circles. The spell is up and running once again!! Woo-HOO!
We arrive in Frezzere tomorrow- I will have mor news then.


Forgotten Day, Second Month of Mammals

We're on the road, and the spell on this book is having trouble, and I cannot remember the date since we will not have a calendar until next monday in frezzere. I will post the city circles soon. As soon as I can get Mel to fix this stupid spell!


Fifth Day of Humback Whale, Second Month of Mammals

It sucks to be back in school. I actually have to get up before lunch, and the teachers treat me as a servant. Well, yeah, I technically am one, but I am going to school with the Princess! Hey! Dude! If I'm doing that, I gotta be something SPECIAL! They were not even calling on me until Mel ordered them to. Gos they are a pain in the fins!

On a non-ranty type note, I am nearing completion of my first fin sock.THe thin membranes of our tailfins cannot stand too much cold water, so in preparation for our journey to Frezzere, I am knitting as much warming seaweedsilk clothes as I can. Maybe I will show you a picture of me in a ss cardi!


Second Day of HumpbackWhale, Second Month of Mammals

I am not looking forward to returning to school. This past week was Water Warming Season Break. I like sleeping late. Now I must wake early and go to school with the Princess and her ladies. Yep, they are my friends, but they get treated according to rank in the classes. The only reason I am not in regular servante school is because Mel has promoted me up to semi-lady in waiting. Basically the same duties, but 'too good' to go to regular school. It will be even more hectic since we are preparing to go on the annual round of cities. For more information on that, look in the corresponding entry in the very important mer lore area.


First Day of HumpbackWhale, Second Month of Mammals

I spent my day drawing more pictures. Isn't Mel MUCH more pretty? Dea Coraldotter (on the left, 13) and Dessa Pikedotter (Right, 11) are hi-fiving after rescuing us.


Seventh Day of Dolphin, Second Month of Mammals

Not much has happened today. Mum feels better, and I spent the day drawing a picture of me. Mel said it would become less sketchy and more... sharp.


Sixth Day of Dolphin, Second Month of Mammals

I spent the day swimming. I am dead tired. Nobody except my friends knew I was gone, so that is good. Good night!! (fading yawns)
