sigmeowklim: prompt: dio iS THE FUCKING MERMAID PINING AFTER SIGMA OKAY GO

The blond’s reddish tail flicked back and forth as he weaved his way through the waters, flopping down in his secret cave full of treasures. “Fuck,” he murmured, placing his chin in his hands and sighing deeply. “I got another thing from the human world today…”

Dio gingerly placed something called a dinglehopper on a pile of treasures. It was something he’d never seen before, but Kyle, the seagull who was quite knowledgeable about the human world, had explained it. Every time Dio found an object from the human world, he’d show Kyle, and the bird would tell him its name.

The irate merman began collecting human things a few months ago, after he had saved a human man from drowning. He had a hard time admitting it, but he had fallen in love with the human. 

“Dio~!” Quark, the flounder, swam up to the merman and butted his yellow head into it. “Whatcha got there?”

The blond shoved at the little fish, scowling and replying, “It’s called a… dinglehopper or some shit like that. I think it’s for brushing hair.” He poked the three-pronged instrument curiously. “I bet they use them all the time in the human world.”

He sighed; his father, King Brother of the seas, would never let him interact with someone outside their kingdom, much less their underwater world. It wasn’t fair; Dio and his brothers were cooped up with little promise of freedom. It was supposed to be this way, he was told, but he couldn’t accept it. Not when the human world was full of such wonderful things - and such a handsome prince. 

How could such a world be bad? 

“Look at this stuff. Isn’t it so fucking neat?” Dio murmured, looking over his stuff. “Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete? Wouldn’t you think I’m the guy… the guy who has everything?

“Look at this trove - treasures untold. How many wonders can one fucking cavern hold? Looking around here, you’d think… ‘He’s got everything!’” 

But he didn’t have enough. He had gadgets and gizmos a plenty, yeah - whosits and whatsits galore. Hell, you want thingabobs? He had twenty

But… who cared? No big deal. Dio wanted more.

“I want to live where the people are,” he growled, balling his hands into fists. “I want to see them dancing, and walking around on those… uh… what do you call ‘em?” He thought for a moment before it came to him. “Oh, feet.”

Flipping fins didn’t get very far. Besides, legs were required for jumping and dancing - and strolling around on the… what do you call it? …Street.

Dio laid down on the ocean floor, heaving another sigh and murmuring, “Up where they walk… and run… and play all day in the sun wandering free… I wish… I wish I could be part of that fucking world.”
