The original story of the little mermaid is that she must kill the prince in order to be human, and in the end, she loves him too much and kills herself instead.
The artwork is too great not to reblog.
Ok, ok - important expansion: she only has to kill the Prince because the deal was if he fell in love with her she could be human forever, and he didn’t. By which I mean, he was a good person and genuinely nice to her, but he didn’t fall in love. He fell in love with someone else, also perfectly nice - not the seawitch in disguise, fu Disney. The Mermaid is told she can only return to the sea now if she kills the Prince. She goes into the room where he and his lover lie sleeping and they look so beautiful and happy together that she can’t do it.
That’s why she kills herself. And because it was a noble act she returns to sea as foam.
One moral of the story was that women shouldn’t fundamentally change who they are for love of a man, and in theory Han Christian Anderson wrote it for a ballerina with whom he fell in love. She was marrying someone else who wouldn’t let her dance.

petition to make young adult authors stop writing about girls whose lives change when they meet a boy
When she saw him time slowed to a stop. He was so perfect and she knew her life would never be the same because she had finally found him. The one. The first boy she would ever kill.
HE’S STILL WEARING THAT FUCKING TUXEDO
HE’S BEEN WANDERING THE STREETS IN BROAD DAYLIGHT WITH HIS SUNGLASSES AND HIS TUXEDO THIS WHOLE TIME
What if this is his new thing? Like, instead of a closet full of green blazers, lavender pants, and hideous shirts, he has a fuckton of tuxedos. HE’S CLASSY AND DAPPER, DAMMIT.
Of course, this makes it even more obvious that he’s Tuxedo Mask. Who could Tuxedo Mask be? Is it the guy who always wears tuxedos and covers his face with sunglasses, sort of like a mask? NAH, IT’S PROBABLY MOTOKI.
