the ballad of nessie
young, wild & free
She wasn’t sure why she wasn’t doing this.
It wasn’t like she was any sort of hero or anything, right?
Most people feared Nessie, when they thought about her. The lochness monster, floating around in some lake… It was a ridiculous story people of the other world came up with, seeing as she was walking right there besides them, but it was still something. Something that made her believe that she was real. But still, she was no hero. She was a monster, a giant beast. Perhaps not as dangerous as humans believed her to be, but still. If set off, she could drown them. Drown herself, almost. And why? What use was such a skill? As far as she was concerned, there wasn’t one. And now she had cried in the other world- not as much as she often did, but still enough to be worrisome. What if people saw her? Watched her? Nessie didn’t want to be judged for such a thing. She just wanted to keep on living her life, she wanted to keep on pretending that things were just fine. They were, weren’t they?
At least, in this world, there were other distractions. Far more important things to focus on. She had to survive, here. Thankfully she managed to cross at the right moment, right when there was water everywhere. A wonderful change from what had happened before. Nessie could swim to her heart’s content, and make sure that no darkness beasts got too close by. Only the ones out today seemed to be far more interested in someone, or something, else.
She could hear the sounds of a struggle and couldn’t help but investigate- and upon seeing someone new and different… She had to do something. The beast wasn’t large, and while Nessie wasn’t very good at fighting, she was quite skilled at scaring. She just had to use it to her advantage. The merman fought back, but the creature was still fighting. Why wouldn’t it go away? Thinking fast, the young monster charged towards the darkness beast, slamming her body up against it. Enough to stun it for a moment, she hoped, so her new friend could hit it again. Just anything to help them out, right?

The Little Mermaid
Life under the sea was a good life. The clams were happy, the fishes kept on swimming. The music playing kept everyone happy…. Except now there was no music, there was no light, no happy chatter as everyone went about their happy lives. There was only silence, darkness prevailed, whispers replaced the happy chatter and everyone went about serious and morose.
Days were spent out in the open water, looking for those in need of help. Looking for strategic places to take on the creatures determined to take them down; to take their home away from them. Coral Reefs were bereft of colour, no light penetrated the water to make the currents sing with life. Currents were to be avoided now, for they were so strong that before you knew it, you’d be carried off with no way to escape it.
Triton was out with his warriors as usual, shutting down any protest of him staying behind. It was not really often he had to these days. They had been at this for so long, they knew they needed him, that he couldn’t just sit around and direct them from his throne. He needed to be out there, looking for his family as well as keeping the Darkness at bay as much as he could. They had lost many merpeople and sea animals alike in their quest for survival. That never deterred him from trying to escape his home. From making a new life for himself in the new world across the portal.
His home, his very soul was tied to the ocean, and he would think very little of himself if he did not try his hardest to keep it safe.
Together the group had found a nest of shadows in an underwater cove and found themselves in a battle. Although they had the advantage of surprise, they were overwhelmingly outnumber. Not unusual, and now they were used to fighting under such pressures. That didn’t make it any easier though, and soon they found themselves struggling to keep things under control. Triton found himself in close quarters and using the trident as a spear rather than it’s power. It was too dangerous to fire for he did not want to hit his comrades.
They were coming to the end of the battle, just had to combat the shadows that had formed into one huge mass. Something they had not accounted for and were struggling with their dwindling numbers. Suddenly something bigger came shooting into the fray and with a solid hit that stunned the beast. With everyone out of the way, Triton then sent a golden beam of light towards it and it evaporated in to nothingness.
He turned to the creature that came to their aid, surprise and relief on his face. With a bow, he spoke. “Thank you, your approach was well timed.”
