2018 Wattys winner! #2 in backstory, #5 in headcanons and #13 in Disney. [To be edited.] Prepare to see "The Little Mermaid" in a very different light. If you grew up loving the Disney classic, this is your chance to be part of that world again--a world darker and more complex than you  remember.  Trace Ursula's descent into villainy, and decide whether this is a prequel to "The Little Mermaid"....or if TLM is merely a sequel to Ursula's tale. 

Cover by the amazing Sophia Lamons.

Wattpad's not letting me highlight individual lines for some reason today but I love this whole section anyway. The history you're creating here and the set up is killer! Feels so authentic!
Or give a certain mermaid legs and stealing her voice, and transforming the merpeople she has “helped” into weed-like sea creatures
This whole paragraph is mesmerising! Wonderful descriptions once again!
