Sorry for being Late, Muffins.

Hurrr, my exam is this Saturday! I'm so frightened!

Also, there's been some confusion. x3 My birthday is in June 24. I mentioned my birthday in a previous page, but I didn't mean to say that day was my birthday. Rather, my birthday's coming up. o wo Just a few days after that darn exam, too. - w-;

Anyhow, here be some lovely fanart!

Also,

@DamiGami: About the "published" comment. I won't lie: that'd be pretty exciting. I've never published anything in my whole life, so it would be a first. But I'm not sure this COULD get published. For the following reasons mainly:
a) Copyright issues. I know it's really NOT a very good re-telling of Disney's Little Mermaid, but I'm worried it might bring some issues. They probably could be fixed by changing everyone's names, but still, it worries me. o wo;
b) I live in Mexico. I'm pretty sure that would be an issue somewhere. xD If anything, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to contact anyone personally about this.
c) The quality of the beginning of the comic is less than ideal for publishing.
d) Not sure anyone would want to publish an amateur comic, much less a Shonen-Ai amateur comic about a "re-telling" of Disney's The Little Mermaid.

Still, thank you much for the offer. It warms my heart dearly. o wo

You'd be suprised. 030 I would want to buy one >w> And you could also take an alternitive (sp fail) route and "self publish." There are some pretty good websites for that 030

Hey about getting published:

a) you've got something there with the copyright issues, but you could always argue that what you're doing is a parody of the Little Mermaid story.

b) D: Dood, the fact that you live in Mexico is not a reason to not get published.

c) no one said you had to publish this instant. You could spruce up the beginning pages a little, but I've been reading your comic since the beginning and I've loved it~!

d) there have been a couple of people who have published their comics. they don't have book signing or anything fancy like that. If anything, you can just print out the pages of your comic and have it bound by a printing press or something (I've done that) That way it's published, but not really. :3 And besides... O_o;; you'd be surprised what gets published out there.


I know I'm not the one who brought it up, but I wouldn't completely cross off publishing from your list of possible things to do. I think you have the potential, so keep up the good work~!

And like I said, I've loved your comic from day one. (I've just been luuuurrrkkiiing~) :3 and from the looks of it, so have a lot of other people~

Who is that third voice in the last panel? Not that Charles bastard, and DEFINITELY NOT Eric... Maybe its a brother. OR! PARENTS! They do have parents, right?
Anyway, love the comic. Clueless!Ariel is just adorable. Anywho, "Happy, happy birthday!" :D

Regarding copyright...

I'm no lawyer, so I recommend you get some professional advice, however based on my understanding of copyright law I don't think your work would be a copyright infringement. This is because:

- Most of the plot, ideas, etc, that are similar to the Disney version are present in the original published by the Brothers Grimm and is hence in the public domain.
- Appearance, personality, etc, of characters that are present in both your work and the Disney version are either completely original, or else bear only a passing resemblance (eg, both Scuttle's are seagulls with the same name). Basically they are different enough that it's not considered copyright infringement. Not sure if the character name will create an issue, but beyond that there shouldn't be one.

Essentially I think the quantity of original ideas and images in your work will allow it to be treated in a similar manner to a parody from a copyright standpoint.

I think if you just polish up your first few pages and get some legal advice regarding copyright, you should be well on your way to getting published. This is a very entertaining story with some beautiful artwork and a decently sized following, so you should be able to get a publisher interested if you started looking around.

I wish you the best of luck with it. :)

1) Disney's "The Little Mermaid" is a take on someone else's story, so you're safe as far as that goes; your story is very, very different.
2) So what?
3) Then update it.
4) You can self publish it on something like Lulu.com. I'm sure a lot of us would love to see you published. :)

8D Now wouldn't it be funny if this 'bastard Charles fellow' was 'KING bastard Charles fellow' to all of your readers xDD;;; keheh. Who else pays for the castle anyway? Tho', seeing Ariel kick the ass of the father of his soon to be betrothed bride, Eric, would be amusing as heck. xd I could always be wrong though dx
