THIS BLOG HAS BEEN WAY TOO EMOTIONAL LATELY LET’S PUT SOME GRATUITOUS FANSERVICE IN ORDER TO CORRECT THAT

Her breath came out in short, white puffs in the cool seaside air, as she waded ankle-deep through the gentle surf on that clear, moonlit night.

The local…

I love this!

So… can this just be a thing now? Can the dbz fandom of tumblr join forces and all write awesome little fanfic one-shots of this AU and compile them into a collective story? LET’S ALL WRITE THE STORY OF “THE LITTLE MERGETA” TOGETHER!

If you’d like to pitch in, the opportunity would be most welcome! Stupidoomdoodles.tumblr.com here has already received a couple of fics on this subject, and I myself intend to write another piece or two when time permits. I welcome any reinforcements to dazzle her with other yarns about this sea-dwelling Saiyan!

THIS BLOG HAS BEEN WAY TOO EMOTIONAL LATELY LET’S PUT SOME GRATUITOUS FANSERVICE IN ORDER TO CORRECT THAT

Her breath came out in short, white puffs in the cool seaside air, as she waded ankle-deep through the gentle surf on that clear, moonlit night.

The local pubs had been rife with stories of sightings of the strange beast, called “Vegeta” by the locals, a word in their language that meant “Great Tail”. Bulma felt her interaction with this “Vegeta” was fleeting, and left her with an insatiable curiosity.

She had sailed many a sea, but never felt it betrayed extraordinary secrets to her, until this strange, fish-tailed man came up to her, only to return to the briny deep as quickly as he had come. And now, hearing rumours of a similar creature seen near the shoreline, she saw it as an opportunity to satisfy her curiosity once more.

Knowing that she first saw the creature late at night, she searched now under the stars, assuming the creature was nocturnal, or preferred the secrecy the darkness afforded him. She kept a keen eye out into the sea, looking for a strange splash, an errant ripple, or the flick of a large fin.

But then, as she glimpsed up at a large boulder resting in the nearby shallows, she saw him. He was a dark silhouette atop the boulder, black against the inky blue night, but Bulma quickly recognized the crown of spiky black hair upon his head. This could be none other but the fabled Vegeta.

She approached the rock cautiously, taking care not to frighten the creature away, as he had been before. As she neared the rock, and the shadow’s features began to emerge through the gloom, hr suddenly looked at her.

Bulma froze where she stood, crouching slightly, hoping she didn’t look like a threat. A long, silent moment passed between them, before, at last, the merman spoke.

His voice was gentle yet deep, like the call of whales in the distant ocean, or the churn of waves upon a rocky cliff. His voice WAS the sea itself. Seeing the creature had no visible intent to flee, Bulma smiled.

"Hey there, Vegeta! You sure don’t make it easy to find you!" she called out. The creature tilted his head with a confused expression. Undaunted, Bulma continued.

"You’re becoming quite the legend around here!" she told him. "People all over are telling stories about Vegeta, about his powerful tail, about his incredible speed and strength!"

The merman touched his hand to his chest. “Ve-ge-ta?”

"Yes, you! Vegeta!" she said excitedly, pointing at him. "They’ve never seen anything like you before! I’VE never seen anything like you!"

Vegeta held his hand out towards Bulma, and spoke again in his strange, rolling tongue.

"Oh. Um," she answered, putting her own hand to her chest. "Bulma. I’m Bulma."

"…Bulllll… ma?" said the merman. Bulma nodded enthusiastically.

"Yes! Yes, Bulma!" she exclaimed. "I’m Bulma, like how you’re Vegeta!"

Vegeta extended his hand towards her. “Bulma,” he said.

Unclear at first, she quickly sensed his intent, and held her own hand out to his. Taking her in a strong grip, Vegeta pulled her up onto the top of the rock. But near the top, her feet slipped on the wet surface, and she tumbled forwards onto him.

"Oh! Vegeta, I’m so sorry!" she said. "I just lost my…"

As she lied atop the merman, looking deep into his striking green eyes, widened with what looked like a combination of fear and amazement, she suddenly found herself speechless.

"…You ARE real…" she whispered, her voice quiet with awe. "You’re not just a legend."

The two sat up slowly, unable to take their eyes off one another, as they clasped their hands together, his hands large and webbed, hers thin and callused.

"Bulma…" he whispered back.

(Feel free to build onto this however you may fancy. ;) )

I’ve re-rolled and got INFJ (Counselor), which has produced different, and arguably more agreeable, results:

Strong opener.

Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about!

Mm… I can dig it.

Yep, yep, yep, yep, yep, yep.

I have had suspicions about Reagan in the past…

Heeeee!

Alright.

I’m growing gradually more concerned…

D’aww…

D’AWWW!

…Well, alright.

Now that just seems gratuitous.

Now that just seems REALLY gratuitous!

 

I just tilted my head and smiled.

  • Vincent Crabbe, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew from Harry Potter

Woo! Lupin represent!

  • Princess Nuala from Hellboy II: The Golden Army
  • Peter Petrelli from Heroes
  • Juan Sanchez Villa-Lobos Ramirez from Highlander

Just keep me away from Clancy Brown. And sequels.

Nice enough young chap.

On the one hand, awesome! But on the other, uh-oh…

I have frequently professed an interest in staying home today…

Well, they can’t all be slam dunks.

I just wanted an excuse to post this.

Yep.

Oh, all of the hells yeah.

I wish I could pull off a suit like his.

Ooh, yessir!

Oh, hey Marge. Fancy seeing you again!

However, unlike Harold, I eager await someone to start narrating my life.

Damn good coffee.

And a strong closer. I’m more pleased with these results.

I rolled ISFJ (Protector), which has produced…

…Alright?

Neat!

Heh, that soft-spoken gym teacher. Not bad.

Well… I wouldn’t doubt it.

 

Aw, man. :(

HELLS YEAH!

I seem to keep getting characters that die horribly. :(

Interesting.

Hmm.

YES!

Interesting.

Dammit.

Aw come on, I don’t get to be Marge? Lame!

I’m not sure if this is cool, or if it really sucks…

In this case, I really AM Groot.

And people wonder why I tend to avoid relationships…

And yet people say I used to physically resemble Harry. Weird.

FFFFFFFF I’m not Boomhauer?

It just keeps getting worse!

Fortunately this has brought things back up to a more positive tier.

If I knew any bloody thing about this series, I’d know if I should be pleased or not.

Solid.

I liked him.

 

Tee hee.

 

This is the one Sailor Scout I’m not especially familiar with. Weird…

This is the third time a variant of Dr. Watson has made this list. I guess people are either a Watcon or a Sherlock in this world…

Sweet!

Boom… headshot.

Crap.

I might try and re-roll myself.
