Goddamn can’t get some privacy even in the sea..!

Clover-magic has been writing awesome fic based on my marine biology au, and this fabulous fic is Syreni and you all should go to read it ASAP. She has done awesome job in creating the world of different merfolks!

In the fic Haru and Makoto try to find some privacy for tender moments, as even the little hints of interest towards one another make Makoto’s siblings go “stop that mating ritual it’s gross!” I find it extremely hilarious, as it seems Makoto and Haru are later (from the fic’s point of view) pestered by excited marine biologists Nagisa and Rei. So, hard to get privacy, whether you are near the coast line or deep in the open sea haha!

Random Marine Biology AU Trivia

- Makoto’s saddle patch (the grey area behind the dorsal fin) is heart shaped. No one else in his family has the similar shape.
- Rin likes to swim a lot with real sharks, as he feels he gets closer to his belated father when he’s with the sharks. He spends lots of…

harukas-package said: I'm really curiousof how did Nitori even manage to put the collar on Rin in the first place? Did he convince Gou to help him or have Seijurou do it, or did he do it himself? Like if Rin's aggressive enough to take it off, how did it even get on in the first place? I'm v curious bc if Nitori did it himself then dang dude has major balls.

I honestly have no idea! I’d put my money on a tranquilizer gun though…

how long has it been since i last drew for this AU i love this AU i should draw more of this AU
somewhat(?) based on a scene in Syreni by Shimegami which is based on Niuniente’s Marine Bio AU uwu
The reason that Nagisa and Rei’s subject, Haru, swims out for a period of time even tho he stays in his territory for the rest of the year is to only see his beloved blacktail with the green eyes and soft brown hair uwu

Anonymous said: Do mermen interact with their mammal types? Like does Haru hang with dolphins? etc

niuniente:

I think so, same way as people interact with animals. They let them be and approach them only if the animals let them.

I’m pretty sure they respect their animals parts a lot; orca types orcas, shark types sharks, dolphin types dolphins ect. Maybe even in religious way, as all tribes always have their tales and mythologies. I wouldn’t surprised if the merfolk told tales of how when they die, they reborn as their animal part and when the animal part dies, they reborn again as merfolk. For example when Haru dies, he reborns as a dolphin and when the dolphin-Haru dies, he reborns again as a different merman or mermaid, as it doesn’t matter what sex the next reborn body is. So, the animal parts are the loved ancestors, who will come back to merfolk later. At least that’s how the merfolk believe, of course humans know nothing of this, as they haven’t been able to study their language

What it comes to actually capturing a merperson for studying, I think the human society has very tight regulations for it. You need to be a marine biologist or other research helping the merfolks, fill this and this and that regulations which are there to keep the captured merfolk safe, you need to apply and request the permission for the capture from very high personalities/groups protecting merfolk ect. Thus marine biologist study them in waters. 

Marine biologist naturally help any merfolk in distress and can transport them without permission to health care.

"Huh? Hey, Gou, what’s wrong!?"

"They’re… slow, and fat, and cramped… They’re unhappy, I can tell…"

Seijuurou told Gou that there was a place where she could go see other sharks and thought it would be a good idea to take her, but when she gets there it’s far from what she expected…

Here that’s Syreni stuff I was talking about. Chapter 3 still inducing lots of crying from me, so I worked on this instead.

I got another idea for the Marine Biology AU! Got it last night when i was just about to fall asleep (atleast it felt like it) and then i could’nt stop thinking about it until i actually fell asleep XD
I was thinking since she mentioned that maybe Haru gets fever often and Makoto hunts for him and so on I just got the thought that Makoto maybe fixed this resting place for Haru with sea weed, and grass/straw whatever soft he could gather, and makes sure Haru is comfortable =3
I notice now (ofcourse) that Makoto’s upper body may be a bit too small but I can live with it! they’re just too cute anyway! XD
All credit for the Marine Biology AU goes to Niuniente!

With a rapid clicking Rei spins the focus wheel of the binoculars until the shoreline finally becomes fully visible.

“There he is.” He focuses on the shape of the dolphin type merman sitting close to the shore. “Good morning Haru.” The spectacled biologist says to himself as he looks down to make a note in his field note book.

The water in front of the dolphin type merman ripples as the orca type peeks out.

“Mako-chan is there too!” Nagisa says excitedly, focusing his own binoculars as he leans off the edge of the boat. “Look he bought Haru a present!”

Fanart for niuniente's Marine Biology AU!

I figured Makoto and Haru love to cuddle in the warm sun after swimming for a while. And Makoto tends to hunt for both of them more than Haru would (Haru is lazy but Makoto still likes to take care of him anyway lol)

These were part of a huge canvass but I guess they look better separate.
