Why a mermaid? I like them, that's why. I have been more than a little obsessed with damsels of an aquatic nature for a long time...sirens and selkies and rusalki and nixes and such. And I know one...personally. And one of my favourite songs is a gaelic song about a lonely mermaid. And my middle name means 'sea'...among other things. And when I was six the boy next door (who was a little older than I was and could swim underwater) grabbed my leg and pulled me under at the local pool...then the world tipped sideways and the light went blue and everything went quiet for what seemed like forever. And I breathed...and I COULD breath...underwater.
