OMG a new project update! /347665
@Bracha You must be psychic. You asked this question and I thought "Huh, you know I didn't think people ate oranges in different ways!" I usually peel it and then just eat each slice, which is what I thought everyone did. Today someone in our office ate an orange....with the skin still on. Just biting into it. What chaos!!! Then I discovered someone else here eats oranges by taking a slice and sucking out the insides, leaving the membrane behind. Vampire-style. Who knew there were so many ways to eat an orange O_O (well, besides you!)
@Rad I have not! What's it about?
@Owl for some reason, I am suspicious...
I was inspired on the WoFMB to do this and since it's more extensive than my usual prompt I'll share it w the other MBs!
Here are 4 different Merpeople tribes (sorry about these names, I'm not feeling extremely creative when it comes to naming things, feel free to re-name if these concepts inspire you :P)
1. The MerShark: Aggressive, combative people with strong swimming abilities and rough, thick scales on their tails. They can use their tails to sharpen their tools or weapons when necessary. They typically use lances to catch small or large fish for food. As long as no one messes with their territory, they generally don't invade the space of others and stick to themselves.
2. The MerJelly: Nomadic group of Mer who have no distinct homeland, often causing them issues with the MerSharks. Especially since their "go with the flow attitude" is the polar opposite of the MerSharks aggression. They use traps and nets to catch large quantities of fish at a time, again causing issues with other tribes as they take a lot of the food supply. But they are incredibly likeable and due to their travels often ingratiate themselves to a tribe by becoming a bard, performer, merchant, or comedian.
3. The MerEel: Fastest swimmers with long, thin tails. They are capable of swimming backwards, a unique defense. They live in a maze-like cave palace that has never been successfully infiltrated. As they are the fastest most skilled swimmers, they rarely use ranged tools and instead use small clawed gloves to easily catch their prey. They have a bad rep among other tribes for being sneaky and darting into others territory to catch prey, but they've never been caught red-handed so it's all just a rumor.
4. The MerPuffer: Generally peaceful, they have the best defense of all the Mer tribes. They are the slowest and smallest tribe and are primarily vegetarian, eating algae, but consider small shellfish like clams or oysters delicacies for special occasions. They are natural tinkerers and have become the toolmakers for the other tribes. Their blood contains a deadly toxin and when in danger they can inflate deadly spikes on their tail.
