Okay, that is kind of stupid. Stupid common folk. You don't jsut base someone's birth on EYE COLOR! It's a genetic thing, but that can be explained. However, I'm not smart enough to do so, so I'll just fume in a corner at people in general.
Haha, Eric's birth may be questionable, but I think Ariel has more important issues to deal with. For instance, the fact that Eric happens to be an entirely different SPECIES may be called into question. Not that any of the princes know this.
Those with blue eyes have a smaller amount of melanin in their eyes, hence the blue coloring. If he has brown eyes, it's because he was more melanin circulating. This could be because of his mother. Perhaps she had brown eyes? If so, then there's a chance that the brown eyes might (I'm not sure which is recessive and which is dominant) dominate the blue eyes. Eric has a different MOTHER from the others, but I'll bet he's the son of the king, just like the others.
Happy New Year to you too! ^^
awww ;.; poor Eric ;.; [but I know Ariel would make it up for all those bad years for him :>]
and @randomfan: yeah, dark eye (hair too) colors are always dominant, light ones are recessive. If one of Hartley's parents didn't have blue eyes it's near to impossible for Eric to have them like that.
Hehe, I just found this comic tonight so I just read it from the beginning. xD When I reached the last page, I was like NOOO, I WANNA READ MOARRR. xD Yeah I have been searching for yaoi mangas about Mermans but couldn't find much stuff. So when I found this, even though it's not a manga, this is JUST what I wanted to find! :D A gay version of The Little Mermaid! xDD I love the comedy in this comic too xD And Eric is so cute ; u ; Anyways, I hope you update soon! And Happy New Year! //becomes a fan
Well crap. I finally reached the end after stumbling on you're dA. It took two tries of clicking that next button before realizing that indeed, my little merman adventure had to come to the end at the moment. Thus, my heartwrenching 'noooo' of failure and race to go make an account. fffff I LOVE THIS. NO WORDS DESCRIBE MY LOVE. Curious though, Ariel know any magic? Since he IS the son of Triton and all. >x>
EDIT: ALSO. Since reading a comment got me onto this subject, green eyes are actually more dominant than blue. o3o ALTHOUGH SILLY PEOPLE WOULDN'T KNOW THAT IN MEDIEVAL TIMES WOULD THEY? derp nordotheyhavednatestingrofl
