Women stand by Sailor Moon today because it respected them, enriched them, and entertained them when others refused to — others that have not changed much in the 23 years since the manga debuted.

Please tell us the story of how you thought you were a real mermaid
Anonymous

Okay so as you may or may not be able to tell, even now into my young adulthood I embrace wholeheartedly Disney princesses and Sailor Moon and magical girls and all that stuff (as many do.) My point is that I’ve been this fanciful girl my entire life, and when I was younger and had blissful ignorance and imagination on my side, well, I may have imagined a little too strongly. 

The Little Mermaid is my favorite movie of all time. OF ALL TIME.

I used to come home from pre-school & kindergarten every day and tell my mom to put it on. Let me tell you something there was a time in my life I could recite every word of dialogue, every note of the goddamn music. It was intense.

Of course I wanted to be a mermaid. And to my little 3 year old mind, if Ariel could become human then obviously I could become a mermaid. Duh. The beauty of it was that I thought my mom looked exactly like Ariel because she has this huge head of bright red hair (for the sake of accuracy it looks a lot more like Merida’s hair but you see youngin’s, Merida didn’t exist in my day so red hair automatically equated Ariel). And I thought my dad looked like Eric, which he kinda does just…. Cuban. Lol. 

So here I am thinking I’m half mermaid. I keep my theory to myself because I what if it’s a big secret? I can’t blow my parents’ cover. So I did the next best thing. I dressed up as a mermaid every year for Halloween. I had my mom sew me a mermaid tail to wear in the bath tub, in the pool, at the beach. Literally any time I was in more than 2 inches of water.

Fast forward to the year 2000 and what the fuck happens? They release The Little Mermaid 2 with ARIEL’S DAUGHTER MELODY. Now sure, I don’t have blue eyes, but I was a little girl with long black hair who loved the ocean. Motherfuckers I was Melody.

^ dats me

Couple all of that with the fact that I live in Miami and had a pool and a boat that we went out on every weekend, I was a swimming queen. I actually taught myself how to swim when I was 4. I was pissed that my cousins could be in the pool by themselves and I had to wait for one of my parents, so I just threw off my little arm floaties and jumped the fuck in. Deep end, bitch. All the adults got freaked out and were about to jump in after me, but they were like “wait she’s swimming.” All by myself. Celine Dion status. 

This idea carried on with me for 7 years. From the time I was 3, to the time I was 10. Don’t know why I stopped believing it, I guess I was tired of waiting for my fins to grow.

Do I think mermaids are real? There’s so much of the ocean we haven’t explored, who the hell am I to say they aren’t? I hold out hope that there are deep sea killer mermaids. I have just realized that I am not one of them. Though I try to be, lord do I try to be. The amount of money I’ve spent on mermaid scale leggings and aquatic themed clothes is testament to that.

I LAUGHED AT THIS MUCH MORE THAN I SHOULD HAVE

I am so fucking happy this is back in my life once again

For fans of mermaids
Into the Deep 
Pages: 240 Publisher: Fire and Ice Books Genre: YA Fantasy; Mermaids; Greek Mythology #1 in Series Source: Author No one understands the fury of the ocean like Zoey. Ten years ago, she lost her leg in a freak shark attack. The night after her sixteenth birthday, she has yet to accept her awkward prosthetic limb or the fact she will always be different. Wary of the sea, and its hidden threats, she ventures to a bonfire at the beach. She’s mesmerized by its awesome power, wondering what she ever had to fear, until a rogue wave sweeps her into the cool, salty water. Zoey believed mermaids were creatures of legend, characters in silly children’s stories, but it’s hard to ignore the captivating tail that’s suddenly appeared, or the sense of finally being whole. She abandons her life on land in search of answers about who she really is and where she came from. What she discovers is a kingdom full of intrigue and danger, as well as a royal father she never knew existed. Settling into her role as a mermaid princess, she learns her family is under attack, both on land and in the water. Raging storms swell up, threatening coastal cities, and sea levels rise practically overnight, endangering the lives of everyone she loves. Determined to stop the strange phenomena, Zoey becomes caught up in the race to track down what, or who, is responsible for the catastrophic events. But, Zoey possesses another secret, one born of legend and more powerful than any mer or human can imagine.

Review


Into the Deep is a welcome addition to the (sadly small) canon of YA mermaid novels out there in the world. Although is certainly has its faults, I quite enjoyed Into the Deep and reveled in the wonderful world and mythology Missy Fleming created. Being a mermaid lover (not a joke, I thought I was a literal mermaid for the first 7 years of my life—-that’s a story for another time, though) I am always eager to gobble up mermaid stories and this one left me satisfied and definitely interested in more… READ THE REST OF MY REVIEW ON MY BOOK BLOG! :)

WHY AM I JUST DISCOVERING REVOLUTIONARY GIRL UTENA *NOW*

although I suppose now is really the perfect time in my life to discover things like this. I wouldn’t have appreciated it nearly enough when I was younger nor understood it’s complexities. (Case in point: sailor moon. An ENTIRELY different experience to watch now than when I was a little girl )

Underworld’s Daughter 

Pages: 410 Publisher: Central Avenue Publishing Genre: New Adult; Paranormal; Greek Mythology #2 in Series

New immortals are being created for the first time in thousands of years thanks to the tree of immortality discovered by Persephone and Hades. But Sophie Darrow is not one of them. Nikolaos, the trickster, has given the last ripe immortality fruit to two others, the reincarnations of the gods Dionysos and Hekate: Tabitha and Zoe, currently Sophie’s and Adrian’s best friends. While the disappointed Sophie struggles to remember Hekate and Dionysos from ancient Greece, she must still face her daily life as a mortal university freshman. Tabitha and Zoe have their own struggles as they come to terms with being newly immortal and their own haunting dreams of past lives and loves. The evil committed by Thanatos invades all of them in heartbreaking memories, and worse still, Sophie and her friends know their enemies are determined to kill again. And even the gods can’t save everyone. Review


I finished this book feeling nothing but soul crushing sorrow. Which is a good thing. A brilliant thing, actually, because it means that Molly Ringle accomplished her job in getting me emotionally invested in the story and the characters enough to feel their pain.

But let me not get ahead of myself.

Underworld’s Daughter is the sequel to Persephone’s Orchard, which if you read my review you know I loved. And I loved this one as well, but in a different way. As the author herself says in the afterword of the novel, while Persephone’s Orchard (it will henceforth be referenced as P.O.) can be considered a retelling, Underworld’s Daughter veers pretty directly into the Greek mythology fan fiction realm. Which I was totally okay with because I thought Molly Ringle handled it masterfully… READ THE REST OF THE REVIEW ON MY BOOK BLOG.
