A Short of Sorts: Precipitating Flame

As always, the amazing background art was done by Blue!

Who doesn’t like a good apocalypse myth, yeah? Especially with mermaids. Mermaids make everything better. Also remember that I’m still taking prompts for the next story, and the prompt theme is SHOPPING! (You can check out this post for more info, but feel free to prompt here.) Anyhow, here’s all the prompts!:


  • Precipitating Flame — Abs


  • Plastic — @sarah-ahiers
  • Mermaids were once human, but there was a great flood sent by gaia to punish humanity for damaging the earth, but a nyad who loved humans and was unable to save all of those who were drowning, gave her life energy up to transform them into mermaids. — @catonthekeyboard
  • One fish Two fish — @sdeoul
  • A red towel — @lorienlawrence
  • Mermaids! — @author-in-training7
  • Conch shell | Surfers | Swell — @totally-anntastic


  • Deep-sea mermaids, but giant-kraken sized. — @telari
  • hippocampus! — @alliepennauthor
  • using salt water as a spell component instead of blood — @everqueen12

If you prefer a different medium, this story’s also up on Instagram and Tumblr (and there’s a Tweet for this post)! You can also find out more about the project, past stories, and how to get your own custom stories on this page. And if you’re enjoying the project and want to support it, consider dropping me a Ko-Fi?

See you guys in two weeks for the next story!

Prompt Call: Ocean


Prompt call time! Give me your prompts, and I’ll take every last one and work it into a short story. This time, the theme is OCEAN! (Because this heatwave has murdered me and I wish I were a mermaid at this point.) Anything goes: ideas, words, pictures, poetry, music, whatever you can throw at me. You don’t have to follow the theme, it’s just a nudge to get your brain juices flowing. Otherwise, the general rules apply:

  • You can prompt at any point in time, on any social media where I lurk (like on these posts on Insta, Twitter, and Tumblr), but if it might get worked into the next story if it’s later.
  • You can give me as many prompts as you like—just pretty please keep it within reason.
  • Keep prompts PG-13, and nothing offensive.
  • By giving me prompts, you’re giving me the honor to do whatever I’d like with them in/with my stories as my content. Prompts themselves remains to whoever owns them.

For more info, stories, and custom stories, check out the project page. And if you want to support this project, consider giving me a coffee on Ko-Fi?

Now, hit me with those prompts! And look forward to the story written with last theme’s prompts going live tomorrow!!!
