Since Snorks are just color-changing Moomintrolls with longer fur, I decided Snorkfishes are just color-changing Moominfishes with longer fins (*accidentally draws the trans pride fish with Snorkmaiden*);
For Sniff, I got help from @lonesome-vagabond, who straight up told me to look up for sea dragons. I don't think he meant an actual Phycodurus, but I swear that when my eyes landed on that small long-nosed and long-tailed scaredy-cat thing I only saw Sniff. So Sniff is a Phycodurus;
Now, of course Little My's best sea-species match would be a siren/mermaid once she is definitely the type to drown sailors and fishermen for fun unlike Selkies do, but I thought a lot about it and I got to the conclusion: all Mymbles should be Selkies. It's not only because of the sweet and carefree nature Mymbles and Selkies have in commun (which we know Little My goes against), but also because of the way both Mymbles and Selkies are absolute simps (again, Little My goes against the two species' nature),
Tumblr media
Can't you just see that happening between Mymble Jr and her little siblings? Also, if Moominsea's Snufkin is a Selkie, his mother is automatically a Selkie too, while Joxter is a human.
Now, thinking about Mymble(mamma), she'd be the traditional "I go to the beach to have some cake by the ocean and go back underwater with a child, as my hobbie" type of Selkie, so Joxter would be one of the many sailors/fishermen she saved/found by the beach and had a romantic relationship with only to have a baby Selkie (Snufkin) and take him with her. If Snufkin had been born a human, maybe he'd have gotten to live with his father instead.
Tumblr media
Where is Joxter now? Nobody knows. Some say he moved away from the beach, others say he died of broken heart. But Snufkin believes Joxter is still out there trying to find his lost baby, and goodness, he'd give anything to meet his human father during his winter trips too.

Baby Shark AU
When XGaster prepares to move laboratories, he leaves Blank inside of Cross’s half full cage to encourage him to behave. The cage is knocked into the ocean and sinks to the depths, with Cross and Blank still inside
The vent that allowed the air for Blank to breathe now is letting the ocean water flood the cage. Blank holds their breath as long as they can, around 15 minutes, before they start to drown. Cross, bound and gagged, is completely helpless and is forced to watch his little sibling slowly struggle and suffer for the next few minutes. Just before they die, their mage abilities manifest early, turning them into a Thresher shark pup.
They spend the next few days trapped together in that cage, in the cold dark abyss before they are rescued by Ink and Error.
Cross takes Blank up to the surface to breathe. They struggle against shifting back but finally do so, as the stress of the transformation is too much for them.
They spend the next couple of months together, with Blank in shark form following and feeding off of fish, Neither want to be separated after everything that happened.
Cross eventually encounters Dream sunbathing and they start to bond. Dream is curious why a shark pup is following a mer but thinks they’re cute. As time passes Cross and Blank are eventually brought in to meet the shiver. Upon realising it’s a group of sharks, Cross tells Blank not to show their seal form in front of them, just in case.
Eventually the shiver is curious about Blank vanishing towards the surface every other day and send Killer to follow them, learning that they are actually a Selkie.
Upon confrontation Cross opens up more about their past and the shiver all express support for Blank.
Notes Blank shares Cross’s fear of the dark and tight spaces in this AU
Blank also develops a fear of drowning and for a long time is resistant to their seal form. Feeling to vulnerable and scared to do so.
At one point the shiver hunted a seal but both Cross and Blank got rather upset. They didn’t know why till later, but it reinforced Blanks refusal to stick to their true form.
As Blank shifted before they even learnt to walk in their legged form, most of their skin shifts are of the full animal rather than a mer.
Both Blank and Cross have intense separation anxiety.
A storm sweeps Blank away, they are eventually found by Blue and Geno (having had their leviathan mates meet recently to clear up Blue’s accidental trespassing)
While Ink and Error teach them a little about shapeshifting, Blank and Geno bond. Blank admires Geno’s strong seal form and eventually learns to accept their seal form and feel more comfortable in their own skin.
Eventual happy reunion with Blank returning to the shiver, more confident and independent than before.

Selkie time 
Selkie Blitzen
lives among humans because its 2020 and the ocean doesn’t have wifi 
actually half selkie on his mother’s side, spent his childhood on land, teen years with his mom’s pod, returned to land as an adult since he liked it better 
seal skin looks like a very dramatic fur coat, by choice because he’s extra™
Selkie Hearthstone 
Fucking feral as hell, eats fish raw in either form 
Was abandon once his parents realized he was deaf, but got taken in by a pod of just straight-up normal seals who raised him 
watch your fingers he bites

Leviathantale MerMay 2021 - Day 1: Leviathan
I know it's a bit late, but I'd like to participate in Sku's MerMay Prompt List. Here's Day 1! This is not canon to "Little Selkie".
There were once seven Leviathans who roamed the earth. Natural disasters would follow them as they fought amongst each other. Then, one day, two of their own vanished. Shaken by their abrupt disappearances, the remaining Leviathans halted their war.
Centuries later, the remaining five have found a new way of life. With peace, they have realized that the way they had lived and fought was not only pointless, but also harmful to all of the other lives on earth. Their existences have become legends and myths in a quickly modernizing world and they find that they have no reason to change that. They remained hidden and out of sight. They simply wanted to live peaceful lives with their loved ones.
But then, something changed.
As if the even the scales that had long since been uneven, a new Leviathan has appeared. The other Leviathans felt their existence. At first, they originally decided to ignore the newcomer, but then they’re hearing news about the northern ice caps not melting despite warmer weather and about mortals are disappearing. Perturbed and worried, the five gather together and decide to meet the new Leviathan and set some ground rules for this upstart.
There are a lot of snowstorms in the Arctic, making it hard for many to see and thick ice. Dream’s Koi form paves a bath for the sea-bound mers, and they eventually get to the heart of the storm.
When the group reach the center, what they find is completely beyond what they expected: a giant, baby harp seal about the three times the size of a school bus. Instead of the full-grown behemoth the other expected, the new Leviathan is but a scared and bleeding, little (in their perspective) infant.
“But this doesn’t make sense,” Nightmare says, staring disbelievingly at the shivering, giant poofball in front of him, “a Leviathan can’t be a child. We all come into being fully grown.”
Alas, it is the case, no matter how impossible Nightmare and the others think it is.
It turns out the snowstorms and the chaos were simply a reaction from being attacked by landwalker mortals, not some Leviathan flexing their powers as many amongst them had feared. The group also discovered who happened to the missing mortals when the baby Leviathan burps out a snowshoe.
“They deserved it,” Geno decides, looking at all the bloody clubs and stray guns.
“We should still teach them that eating mortals are bad,” Blue frets as the baby Leviathan, now less wary and fearful of the newcomers, coos curiously at everyone. They’re especially enraptured by Ink, Error, and Dream’s colors.
The baby Leviathan is immensely grateful when Reaper plucks out the pesky bullets and heals them. They flop their head onto his outstretched hands and gives them a nuzzle.
“Oh no,” Reaper gasps quietly, “oh nooooooo.”
Reaper adopts them by the time he leaves the Arctic. Baby is supposed to stay in the territory? Too bad. Baby is too young to manage territory anyways. Is Geno still Mama in this AU? Don’t be silly, of course he is. Giant or tiny, baby is still baby.
(I call it the Little Leviathan AU)

I was watching TikTok comps of this guy called Nature Hood and there was this one TikTok where he talked about how seals are the animal that gets the most violated by literally everything else (sharks, orcas, seagulls, otters, etc) and now I can't shake this mental image out of my head of selkie Little My being actually feared by all of these animals because she's just that indestructible
You know, that's actually very interesting. Like, all Selkies would be scared of sharks and all the other predators (the children mostly), but Little My?
shark: *tries to eat Little My*

Larry / 2.5k / G / One-Shot
From time to time, Louis got a peculiar feeling in his chest. Like something was literally tugging at his heartstrings. It was like the urgent need to be somewhere, like a niggling feeling at the back of his brain. That vague notion that something… or even someone was waiting out there for him to finally catch up to them, to come home.
Or: The one were Louis is looking for home and finally finds it in Harry, the selkie.

Baby Leviathan AU
(Expanded from Day 1 of the Mermay Prompt Challenge)
In this AU, nature decides to even the scales by replacing one of their lost Leviathans with a new one (spoilers: It’s Blank)
The other Leviathans don’t really pay much attention to the newbie until snowstorms start to ravage the Arctic and mortals start disappearing
All the Leviathans (with their mortals accompanying them) go up to the Arctic to talk (or beat) some sense to the ambitious upstart
The entire group find Blank, who did not do what they did as a show of power but out of fear since they are *gasp* a baby, which isn't usual for Leviathan-kind
After healing them, Reaper ends up getting attached to the new baby. He adopts them. (What do you mean the baby can't come with me? What do you mean the baby has to stay in their own territory. They're Reaper's now. No take-backs)
As the new Leviathan, Blank has a lot to learn about their new role, abilities, and managing territory…which they have no clue about
“That’s fine. They babey and have enough time to learn! Don’t push so much responsibilities onto them! Stress isn’t good for babey. Kisses and food are!” :DDD - Reaper
Reaper does not make it easy for Blank to learn the ropes since he’s too busy fawning over and spoiling the baby
(All Leviathans end up spoiling baby tbh though some are more in denial than others)
Since Blank can’t really shrink, a lot of shenanigans happen to properly move them over to the Antarctic
It takes some time, but Error - the only one taking the job of training up the newbie seriously - manages to teach Blank how to breathe underwater indefinitely without the help of others
The sheer volume of Blank’s size and fluffiness makes them the best pillow for the mortals (and Leviathans in their smaller form)
This time, it’s Reaper who’s providing the milk since baby is too big to suckle from Geno
Cross and Blank may not have a shared past in this timeline, but he ends up being the most adored babysitter
Blue takes his “don’t eat mortals” lessons VERY seriously. Blank manages not to not eat the scared mortals that lash out at them, which is good! (But then an angry Nightmare destroys their ships and drowns them, which is bad, according to Blue)
Kelp must be the few mortals who takes a look at the behemoth that is Blank and go straight into baby-talking and fussing over them. Probably met baby when they were injured by something made by the scared landdwellers/walkers that Nightmare completely demolished
Everyone discovers that Blank’s talent is adaptability when Dream accidentally lets his heat abilities slip when he loses his temper. Blank wasn’t burned or bothered
XGaster is a more active villain here. He starts to pursue Blank after hearing about the unnatural weather and the disappearances
Totally has some goons, some disgruntled monsters and humans who were friends/acquaintances of the lost mortals
XGaster gets even more interested when he sees that Cross is with an interesting group of Mers - along with his Mystery Anomaly 00. Unfortunately for Cross, he gets captured again with the other members of the Shiver, which pisses a lot of the Leviathans off
XGaster attempts to use the Shiver as coercion to make the oversized baby to come along with him. What he doesn’t know is that Blank under stress means Blank ready for a huge tantrum
They summon a McFreakin’ storm at the Bermuda Triangle
They kinda start stress-eating some little boats and guns…they spit out the mortals, of course, like a good seal pup
They start to throw a racket by crying (like many baby harp seals do), summoning very concerned and angry adults
XGaster’s plans kinda falls apart
Blank totally eats him at some point despite Blue’s “No Eating Mortals!” rule. (Guess that is this AU’s version of Crime Time. It’s technically against the rules, but is done with the intention to make Cross happy so it’s okay)
It takes a year, but Blank manages to learn how to adjust their size so they’re huggable to their mortal family members too (Score!!)
Because of their immortality, Blank stays small and cute for a long, LONG time. Civilizations rise and fall before they manage to start growing bigger and shed their skin. (Their part-human/mage status is up in the air since XGaster and Mia never met in this timeline. Maybe they’ll be a skellie.)
Just like the older Leviathans, Blank garners a reputation and even achieves godhood status in some Mer circles as some Figure of Mercy. If you get on their good side, you’d be spared by the others. Orca Mers have come to avoid hunting for white-coated seals/selkies in fear of accidentally hunting Blank and angering the other Leviathans
