HMS Thunder Child Report | 04/09/2014 4:46 pm
Yeah, most sci-fi really bugs me. Mass Effect did a decent job with alien design and Halo is pretty inspired. Except for the Brutes, because giant ape aliens? Pass. I think part of the reason mermaids get passed up is aquatic sci-fi is usually ignored because SPACE is nautical enough. Also, I think mermaids are considered really feminine and sci-fi is MANLAND. Which is a shame, because mermaids helming starships would be epic.

The punny name doesn't even fit the story I made, but I couldn't not use that one. And yeah, mermaids are so underused. Especially in sci-fi. If Star Trek is supposed to sort of capture the adventures during the Age of Sail, then it makes no sense for there not to be a mermaid/siren analogue. Beyond Good and Evil (the game) had space whales. Why not have space mermaids?

Thanks. Dion Necurat's actually competing. He's been posting in a few different forums to spread his campaign. Clever b*****d. But yeah, I really like this avi. Coincides with me trying to write some mermaid fiction because there is a serious lack of mermaids in most genres. Space. Westerns. Et cetera. The Little Mermaid shouldn't have been a niche movie, y'know? My favorite character in the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie was the mermaid. Most mermaid I've seen in a while.

Thanks. I love mermaids, so I couldn't not.

Actually entered this avi into an avatar contest. Don't reckon I'll win, though. Already rated low. sad

It never ceases to amaze me how you stay so serene in the ED. Very clever 3nodding

It really isn't. It's 30 pages of crap.
