So wait I got my first tumblr follower and his name is Spooky Skeleton Man. I love it thanks for the follow!
Deep Sea Mer
Of all merpeople Deep Sea Mer are the most rarely seen, staying in the highly pressurized depths of the ocean that they call home. Little is known directly of them, barring what their surface-level cousins tell us. In most descriptions Deep Mer scales are darker and tougher than those of Surface Merpeople, and are sometimes interspersed with bioluminescent markings.
Depending on the sea or ocean they live in Deep Mer may also have hair, or hair-like tendrils, depending on how often they interact with merpeople from the upper levels of the waters. Open Ocean Deep Mer are also, technically, capable of the change many Surface Open Ocean Merpeople are capable of, whereby they can shift their form to a human-like one, rather than their tailed form. However this is reportedly very painful for Deep Mer, more used to the deep, dark and pressures of the depths, and unused to the sunlight and lower pressure of the surface levels where they would have to learn it. They have no need of such changing in the deeps, and indeed, it would be dangerous for them.
While, like all merpeople, Deep Mer love fiercely, they do not tend to live in such large groups as Upper-Level Merpeople, instead living in ones and twos, so as to restrict the likelihood of predation. Like most merpeople they have a beautiful singing voice, but unlike the Surface Open Ocean Merpeople, and like Merrows, and the Black Lake Colony of merpeople, their voices do not sound so sweet above water. When they do select a mate it is for life, and they reportedly sing complicated songs to one another, relying on one another’s voices to fill the gaps in their own song.
Due to the sheer loneliness many Deep Mer experience for much of their lives, out of safety, upon finding and being accepted by their chosen mate they bond quite strongly, to such a degree that upon the death of one partner the other often dies not long after, ofttimes having sung a song so strongly it called a storm.
Yet for all, or perhaps in part because of, the sheer power their songs are capable of, many Deep Mer do not communicate in song as so many other merpeople do, instead using a strange clicking, trilling language to speak much of the time. Among the Deep Mer with bioluminescence it is not uncommon for them to be able to, in some small way, influence the intensity of the light, and thus communicate some aspect of their emotions to their companions.
Deep Mer do not, as their Surface cousins do, nurse their young, instead copulating to fertilize eggs within the female, which are then laid in a safe cave or nook, usually in a clutch of between five and ten. These eggs are cared for and managed, not only by the parents, but also by any Membranous Hippamares which may have bonded to the Deep Mer parents, in much the same way as Seahorse-mer might bond to Surface Merpeople. When the eggs hatch the offspring are cared for until they can survive alone, usually having learned language from songs sung by their parents while they were still in the egg, leaving them able to speak, on some level, before they hatch.
On rare occasions a leucistic or albinistic Deep Mer might hatch, but it is said by Surface Merpeople that they do not tend to live long in the deeps, their brightness attracting predators such as the Deep Sea Dragon, and Kraken who feel no kinship to the odd bright, and distinctly edible mer. It is common, Surface Merpeople have said, for leucistic and albinistic hatchlings to be chased away, by their siblings or their parents, that their siblings might be taught to survive without the risk their presence would bring .
SIGNAL BOOST FOR MICHI - PLEASE DONATE - REBLOG
Sent by jessycuhh -
We rescued Michi from a poor environment filled with dirty water, infested with fleas, and no food. Lately we have noticed that he has been more of a recluse than normal, and recurrently has been urinating in abnormal areas. Than one day we noticed blood in his urine.
We immediately took him to the vet and they informed us that he had a large bladder stone. This is causing him extreme pain and needs to quickly be removed.
Along with student loans, home repairs, and health problems we are quickly going into debt. We would greatly appreciate all the help that we are able to get.
PLEASE DONATE. Help save this baby!
Signal boost for the precious baby ;_;
