Thread: My merfolk fantasy novel

    My merfolk fantasy novel

    Hello fellow mers,

    Since a lot of people have enjoyed seeing creative stuff I've been working on, I thought some of you might like taking a look at a fantasy story I'm writing.

    [summary]

    Merfolk scales are a valuable commodity in Halbin. They're used for multitudes of decorative purposes, and because of their high value, some places will even take them as a pseudo currency.
    Irian works on one of the farms that harvests these scales. He'd grown used to it, but as time went on, he started to feel a bit of remorse about what he was doing. Soon, it descended into heavy guilt.

    But he can't stop working. He can't leave his family to starve. It's either help the gills, or help his family.
    Oh how he wished that he didn't have to choose.

    You can find the story here on Wattpad: https://my.w.tt/s1k3kNF6s5

    Thanks! I've seen that you, like me, have been lamenting the lack of a good merman centered novel that wasn't for kids, but wasn't mature.

    If you can leave comments on my story, I'd really appreciate it. It's the best way for me to know what people like, and what I need to do better.
    I hope you enjoy it!

    I wanted to read more before bed but I only made it to chapter 3 haha. This is really good! I'm already hooked on the story.
    I just recently watched a documentary on YouTube about Koi farming and this kinda reminded me of it. Maybe it would give you some ideas about housing/transporting of the gills. Although from what little I've read you have a pretty unique world already set up.

    Thanks! Sorry I didn't notice your comment before. I came back here just to say that I've written a bunch of new chapters.

    That's a really unique story! I like how different it is to the normal plot lines in the genre. Good on you too for pursuing something different!

    I also really wanted to in a way make it more approachable for guys - sooooooooooooo many pieces of merfolk media are romance novels, and are targeted to girls. I wanna show guys that merpeople are something for everyone. And that doesn't mean they have to be all sparkly for the girls or all brawny and dark for the boys.
