External Reviews[edit]

  • pinboard.in: "A ridiculously charming story about high schoolers and predatory mermaids and a fuck-or-die situation, with a really fun narrative style featuring interjections from the non-POV character."
  • delicious.com: "Hilarious fairytale-y story about two boys and their encounter with a mermaid. There are really good lines and it is sweet and a bit creepy. Great! :D"
  • delicious.com: "Self-reflexive and clever and DELIGHTFUL. Also, mermaids? A lot creepier than I expected. Although perhaps it is merely payback for salmon-skin sushi."
