EAH: Mercedes Little by pixiesera EAH: Mercedes Little by pixiesera
Well it got me. I am now in the Ever After High fandom and I have made an OC. I'm trying to just stick to one, maybe two, but seeing how Monster High went...it'll be tough. We'll see if I can do it. But for now here's my first OC Mercedes Little, the daughter of the Little Mermaid. She's mute and communicates through sign language. I was going to have her have a mermaid form via splash effect but I decided against it. I thought giving her only legs fit her story better. Once the little mermaid has legs she can't return to the sea unless she kills her true love and his blood drips onto her feet. Mercedes isn't interested in that so legs she'll have! She's also in love with a boy that doesn't know she exists. I might draw him out sometime.

So anyway, here's her bio:

Name: Mercedes Little, Daughter of the Little Mermaid
Parent’s Story: The Little Mermaid
Roommate: Xia
Secret Heart’s Desire: I don’t know who started the rumor that my story ends with a happily ever after but whoever did is way wrong. At the end of my mother’s story she doesn’t get her prince and she turns into sea foam. I’m determined to win over my prince before I have to turn into sea foam. At the end of my story I’m supposed to gain a soul and go to heaven but what kind of paradise would I have without my true love? That doesn’t sound like a happily ever after to me.
My “Magic” Touch: I may not be a very good swimmer without my tail but I’m a great dancer. Since I have legs now I can’t get my tail back but I don’t really mind. I move much more elegantly on land than I do in the water. People say I look very beautiful and flowing when I dance. I have a lot of fun doing it too!
Storybook Romance Status: I’m madly in love with a boy at school but he’s interested in someone else. I’m trying to get his attention but nothing works. I can’t talk and he doesn’t understand sign language. Even if I could speak I wouldn’t know what to say to him.
“Oh Curse!” Moment: I have bad ankles so I can’t dance or stay on my feet for too long until they start hurting. Wearing high heels doesn’t help the pain so my shoe choices are limited. I have soothing seaweed bandages that I wrap around my feet and they help some, but the pain doesn’t completely go away.
Favorite Subject: Biology. I’m very interested in learning the anatomy of humans and how they work.
Least Favorite Subject: Muse-ic class. Mermaids are famous for their beautiful singing voices but I don’t have a voice to use!
Best Friends Forever After: Xia

Of course I know Melody! All The Little Mermaid movies were my favorite back in the day. But that's Disney's take on the Little Mermaid story. Ever After High doesn't follow Disney's storyline. The Mermaid in EAH isn't Ariel, so no Melody.

Ahh, okay, it's just that I see way too many based off the
Disney version and it angers me so much, cause she's the
only Disney Princess with a daughter.

Yeah I don't like it when people make EAH OCs based on the Disney movies. Mercedes is not supposed to be the new Ariel though. She's based off of the original fairytale.

Actually now that I think about it, it wouldn't be that bad to have it based on the Disney versions, I mean, Mattel works for Disney. Mattel makes all of Disney's dolls and playsets.

Yeah, legally speaking they could but I just don't like it. They're supposed to be the children of fairytales characters, so they should use the original fairytale. Disney's versions have changed a lot of the fairytales anyway.

Haha yeah, that happens. They weren't supposed to be created but they're so cute you can't part with them.
She's cute! Personally I wouldn't use a Disney film or character as a base for an EAH OC but people can if they want. I can't tell them what to do. I just don't like it.

I love her so much! I love how you said you would only have a few, but it would be hard. That's totally me! I started making MH oc's with only a few, now I have like 30. Im starting to make EAH ocs myself (I know, a little late on the bandwagon) but I made some a while ago, and they were ALL Mary-Sues. Yikes! So I'm going to really attempt this time. Mercedes is super cute! I love her a lot!

Thank you!

Haha yeah, that's what happened with my MH OCs. It started with my main 4 and then spiraled out of control. I'm only assuming it'll happen the same way with EAH. Sadly with so many OCs you tend to not focus as much as you need to on developing them, and lack of development can lead to a stale character. I suggest really researching and focusing on one character at a time. I know all the ideas you have are tempting to make right now (I've been there XD) but it'd be better to spend more time on one of a couple at a time.

Just got into the series. I really like your take on her and am surprised at how many don't know how most fairy tales really end

I think that's mostly because they only know the Disney version they grew up with.

True, true
I also kinda came up with a character idea for Ever After High; you know the fairy from the tale of Beauty and the Beast? I'm thinking of making her daughter who decides to abuse her own powers for her desires, unhappy with the thought of simply being another character in someone's happy ending and never receiving her own.

Oh, you mean the sorcerer that turns the prince into the beast? Yeah, that'd be cool.

Yeah, I also got several more ideas too for other ocs (I kinda blame the movie Frozen and watching old Disney films)
Could I note you and get your opinion on them and maybe get an idea or two?

Great character. Loved that you used the original story for her history instead of the Disney version, which most people probably would.

I really wanted to use the original fairy tale as the source material because, like you said, a lot of people would use the Disney version instead. I've seen a few other mermaid OCs and they're the daughters of Ariel and not the original story little mermaid.
