"The hell do you think you're doing on the sharkfolk territory, mermaid!?"
I saw Blackracoon25's Mermaid/Shark AU idea the other day and I just had to try do my own version of it!
Also credit to the original creator of the shark/mermaid au idea Yuuba!
Incredible talent Miss Mungoe wrote an amazing fanfic on this called "Dark Waters"that you guys just have to see!! ->Click here to read it!<-
Dark Waters - chapter 1
If you haven’t read mungoe's new fic, you're missing out. This would make more sense after you do since these are scenes that happen during the first chapter. The designs of Gajeel and Levy are by approvesport and blackracoon25 though I tweaked them a tiny bit ^^;
When spoken word artist Brenna Twohy tells you that she is an unabashed devotee of all things “Potterotica” — erotic fiction based in the magical universe of Harry Potter — your response probably shouldn’t be that her taste is “unrealistic.”
I’m happy to be getting to the point where I don’t have to feel weird about enjoying fanfiction, or having written a bunch of it. Partly it’s that the fandom experience has become more broadly shared. Partly it’s that I stopped giving a shit.
And as for why I like the porny sort of fanfiction, see above. She says it better.
I like sex with context. I like sex when it involves fully fleshed out characters. I like the backstories. I like feeling like these people do other things when they aren’t having sex.
Reblebbing for Rosalarian’s comment and to say this: I was actually embarrassed about my Smut Peddler submission for a while, because it featured two people who had backstories and were enthusiastic about sex. Because sex within context rather than BANGIN OUTA NOWHERE is a “feminine preference” and therefore “not real porn” and ugh fuck that mentality, fuck all of it forever
You know what I love more than a good ol’ anime with homosexual characters and an actual decent plot? Some mother fuckin Karan-style cherry cake.
Scratch that. I probably like my precious lil homo babies more than cake (seriously, Shion is like an angel have you seen that child?)
Anyway, I saw this cake while crying over No. 6 and I was like, you know what? maybe we’ll never find out if reunion will come, but we can drown out pain out with some delicious cake, so lets fuckin do this guys.
Karan’s Black Cherry Cake
(servings: holy shit idk its like an 9 in cake u do the math )
Ingredients for cake-
- 1/2 cup unsalted browned butter
- 1/2 lb of fresh sweet black cherries, quarted
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1.2 cup ground almonds
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 large eggs
- 3/4 cup palm sugar*
- 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract*
- 1/3 cup milk
*I only use palm sugar over regular granulated sugar for this recipe because it gives the cake nice, caramel color similar to Karan’s cake. If you want to use regular sugar, tho, go for it son, you got dis.
*There are many type of vanilla extracts, but I personally prefer the flavor of bourbon vanilla extract. You can use any type you prefer though.
Ingredients for Syrup Cherries-
- 1.8 cups (approx) of dark pitted cherries
- 1/3 cup of sugar
- 3 Tbsp cornstarch
- 1 tsp lemon juice
Procedure for cake-
- Preheat oven to 400 F
- Rinse, dry and pit all cherries, quarter them all.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, ground almonds, baking powder and salt. If you start crying into the batter because you’re thinking about Shion and Nezumi kissing, you can use that as a salt replacement probably.
- In another bowl, beat the eggs and sugar for about 3-5 minutes, until thick and almost as light as Shion’s precious hair. Add in the vanilla extract and combine.
- Use a rubber spatula or a wire whisk to fold in the milk and browned butter. Then proceed to gently fold in the flour mixture until it’s just combined.
- After that, gently fold in the cherries. You know how Shion and Nezumi and all those people were plopped into some giant dumping ground full of dead people near the end of No. 6? Yeah. DON’T do that to your cherries, you gotta gently fold that shit in yo.
- Pour the batter into a prepared 9 in tart pan (brushed with oil so nothing will stick) and smooth out the top.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes, until it looks golden brown and when you stick a toothpick in the middle, it comes out clean.
- Remove from oven and place on a wire rack for 10-15 minutes to cool.
Procedure for Syrup Cherry Topping-
ooh you lil shits thought you’d be done with the cake and that’s it, BUT NO. WE’RE GOIN ON A WHOLE NOTHER LEVEL OF CHERRY MOTHER FUCKER. WE GON’ MAKE SOME MOTHER FUCKIN DELICIOUS CHERRY FILLING TO PUT ON TOP OF THE GOD DAMN MIRACLE OF A CAKE. Try not to shit yourself during the unbelievably wild ride.
- Pit all cherries using either a cherry pitter or one of these convenient alternatives.
- Place the cherries in a medium saucepan and place over heat. Cover. After the cherries lose a considerable amount o juice, which may take about 5 minutes, remove rom heat.
- In a small bowl, mix the sugar and cornstarch together. Pour this mixture into the hot cherries and mix well. Add the lemon juice and mix.
- Return the mixture to the stove and cook over low heat until thickened, stirring frequently.
- Remove from heat and let it cool. If the filling is too thick, add a little water, too thin, add a little more cornstarch.
- you want this shit to be a bit thicker than some regular old cherry pie filling, because it’s going to go on top of the cake, so you want that shit to NOT leak everywhere. Leaking is for eyeballs that have witnessed the tragedy that is Nezumi kissing Shion before leaving, NOT for your fabulous fucking cake.
- Allow it to cool for a bit in the refrigerator so that it will thicken a bit more.
Procedure for Putting all dis Shit Together-
- Place a generous amount of the topping on top of the cherry cake, enough so that it covers the top, but doesn’t slide of the sides.
- Place the entire thing in the refrigerator so the topping can set atop the cake, which will take like 20 minutes to a half an hour, but if you think it needs more or less time, that’s up to you, friend.
- Take that shit out and cut it up however you want.
- Eat it with some delicious fucking whipped cream while you stalk various websites for No. 6 merchandise.
That’s that for this recipe. Hopefully this will take your mind off the fact that you will never have a relationship as adorable as Shion’s and Nezumi’s, and you will never have a family as cool as Inukashi’s (their family is made up of dogs and a baby I’m sorry I think they win the award for coolest family).
Have fun, friendsicle.
