Are you still doing team headcanons? And may I get some domestic Beidou fluff like with her staying with her s/o while not out at sea?
We are not currently doing team headcanons at the moment! Not sure when I’ll open it back up, but I wanna clear a few more of the old ones out first. Anyway, I can always do some Beidou stuff~ Going with a NON traveler reader! - mod Cake
Tumblr media
When you saw the Crux fleet approach the harbor, you would always see Beidou standing at the bow, grinning at the sight of you.
Every time you would rush and run into her arms, Beidou swinging you around as the both of you laughed.
Waking up next to her was such a treasure. For such a wild woman, she always looked so gentle in the morning. The lightest smile on her lips as she tucked hair behind your ear.
Every moment she’s on land, Beidou spends her time with you.
The both of you talk on and on about what you’ve been doing. Beidou tells you about the places she went, and the people she met. You talk to her about your daily life, and all the little things that make you happy.
Going out shopping, eating at restaurants, you do practically cliche date thing for as long as she’s in town. 
She’ll also teach you some blade work. Gotta make sure you could protect yourself, of course. Though she never minds coming to your rescue~
You’ll sit out on the port, leaning against the pirate with your legs swinging off the side. The moon was full that night, and the sound of the waves was so relaxing...
Beidou holds your cheek, her thumb gently swiping across your skin right below your eye. 
A Glaze Lily is picked and placed in your hair. Beidou says that you’re more beautiful than any flower in Liyue.

Treasures...
I’m just a spot
A spec
A thought
In this vast sea
That consumes me
With this time
These words
I tip toe
To be heard
It’s my timeless treasures
That keep me going sometimes
Unexplainable pains
That I am OK with
A knowing
That it’s all temporary

The day is likely to be used in Cobh, renamed Queenstown in 1849, a transatlantic interface and the departure place for 2.5 million Irish people who embarked on coffin ships, water vessels and sea liners to immigrate to America between 1848 and 1950. Less fortunately, Cobh was also the embarkation position for guys, girls and children deported to the penal colonies On 11th April 1912 Cobh was the final port of call for the RMS Titanic. Of the 123 passengers boarded in Cobh, just 44 survived. Come back to Cork for an over night stay at the Imperial Hotel.

Hypergiant Unlock: To Reach the Furthest Ocean
Though he felt the power of this strange land coursing through his body, stronger than he had been before, his rule was not limitless. When he tried to summon his eternal army to the shores of Golden, he found that the strange powers here--those Stars--would not grant him total dominion over their land.
Shame! He would make a fine ruler here!
Tumblr media
“No matter. So we do this one at a time! Just fine with me, just fine!”
It may take hours, perhaps days, but all of them would see this strange ocean they all dreamed of.
Appearing from nowhere on its shores, beckoned by their King, the soldiers of the Ionian Hetairoi stepped out of his reality marble, one at a time. All of them had that same breathtaking reaction to the sea, glittering in the late spring sunshine. Wind blew through their hair, tugged at their armor and capes. They withdrew their weapons, putting them aside for now.
Each asked the same sorts of questions.
Have we reached the furthest sea? Have you reached your dream, my king? Is this a dream?
It was not Okeanos, the King of Conquerors explained, but somewhere beyond the stars themselves. Not a singularity, and not a dream. An island of infinite possibilities, with this being one of them. A marvel, in and of itself.
As each warrior let the sand fall through their fingers, let the water wash over their sandals, let the sea envelop them as they jumped beyond the beach, they all came back with pride. Some wept, and the king could not blame them one bit.
And when they returned to the Hetairoi, even if he could not see them, the joy in their hearts did not leave his. Their strength was his own, resonating in the excitement they brought back to their fellow soldiers. He could feel them all embracing and laughing somewhere in that realm he couldn’t quite go back to.
It took a lot of effort. A lot of energy. It may even require him to be in his spirit form for a short while to recover the sheer mana it took to summon each of his hundreds of soldiers from one plane of reality to the next.
But to see their eyes shine like his own did when he first came to this strange island...
Tumblr media
It was well worth it. The King of Heroes could have his treasures and be perfectly content! But what the King of Conquerors treasured was here, and nothing could be more satisfying in this moment.

5e Homebrew Background
LIGHTHOUSE KEEPER
You’ve spent several years of your life working the remote but vital job of maintaining a lighthouse, keeping the fires lit and the lenses clean and the light strong against the storms and the darkness. It’s a rugged existence, spent holding firm against the elements, and often an isolated one, the care of the lighthouse left in the hands of a few people or perhaps a family. Maybe you inherited your job, the position of keeper passed down through your family, or perhaps you sought out the lonely post yourself for one reason or another. Were you a guardian against the night for ships passing by your light? Were you less than diligent, leaving sailors past your rock uncertain if the light would be there to welcome them? Or were you more unscrupulous and deliberate in your aims? Shipwrecks are a perfect source of loot and plunder, after all …
Skill Proficiencies: Perception, Survival
Tool Proficiencies: a musical instrument OR a set of artisan’s tools of your choice
Languages: one of your choice
Equipment: an oilskin coat, a set of common clothes, a bullseye lantern, a flask of oil, 50ft of hempen rope, and a belt pouch with 10gp
FEATURE: WEATHER EYE
Years of living on hostile coasts have given you an instinctive feel for the weather. You have advantage on any survival checks to predict, prepare for, or endure dangerous weather conditions, as well as advantage on checks made to identify if weather conditions are natural or caused by magic or some other phenomenon.
SUGGESTED CHARACTERISTICS
While the locations of lighthouses may vary, they will often be in remote locations and on hostile or dangerous coasts. As a result, lighthouse keepers tend to be a hardy breed, used to being self-sufficient. They may have a strong sense of duty, taking a role that puts the lives of many in their hands, or they may feel an attraction to the relative isolation of the job, a desire to keep their own company while still serving their community. They may also be self-serving, as the position of lighthouse keeper does put a lot of power in their hands, and for some there may well be a temptation to use that power for their own gain. A lighthouse keeper is an excellent ally or cover for wreckers, after all.
Personality Traits (d8):
I will talk the hind legs off a donkey if I have drink in me
I often talk or hum or sing aloud to myself without noticing
I’m always working something in my hands, splicing rope or whittling wood or polishing glass
I can spend hours lost in my own thoughts
I feel a deep and almost spiritual connection to the sea
I do my work diligently: the elements won’t forgive shoddy preparations
I am sometimes overwhelmed in crowded locations or situations
Sometimes I dream about lost ships, or sailors, or treasures
Ideal (d6):
Duty. When lives depend on what you do, you’d better do it right. (Lawful)
Hope. The job of a light keeper is to show people through the shoals to safe harbour. (Good)
Self-Reliance. A good keeper can stand on their own feet and weather any storm. (Chaotic)
Self-Interest. The power is in your hands, to save people or sink them. Why not use it for your own gain, if the opportunity presents itself? (Evil)
Peace. Sometimes all a body needs is some time in their own company to settle them down. (Neutral)
Money. The job pays, and it’s not the worst job in the world, if you’re tough enough. (Any)
Bond (d6):
I took the loneliest job in the world to hide from my past, and it didn’t work.
I saw an apparition in the light’s beam one night, a strange thing out to sea, and I need to find out what it is and what it means.
My negligence cost a lot of people their lives once, and I will do anything to make up for it.
A wrecker crew took over my lighthouse and used it to lure a ship onto the rocks. I will track them down and have my vengeance.
I spent years watching my light shine out to sea, wondering what was at the other end of it.
I’ve had dreams of great storm coming, and a light needed to stand against it. I need to find that light.
Flaw (d6):
I drink. I drink a lot.
I’m all or nothing in conversation, spend six hours talking non-stop or trail off immediately and completely forget you exist.
I don’t have a good opinion of those who can’t stand on their own two feet and do the work.
I’m easily bribed by small luxuries.
I’m incredibly selfish and will literally let dozens die if it gains me what I want.
I’m incredibly rigid about chores and duties, and will not cut anyone any slack or make much allowance for circumstances.

hey loser talk about how hard it is for the average joe to hitch a ride with beidou
buckle up asshole here’s one for you.  //  @setsuzoku​ 
     Captain Beidou may be an icon of Liyue through her words and actions, but by no means is she the first choice when it comes to traversing the ocean.
     Liyue is a nation of trade, and it should be no surprise that a capital city supervised and governed by merchants will also have its waters frequented by merchants looking to make their penny in Liyue Harbor. With the age of international trade comes the high tides of naval advancement, with many sellers within Liyue Harbor either possessing a vessel of their own or looking to secure a spot on another ship to transport their goods abroad, if not themselves on board as well to sell their wares in the first place.
     And where does the Uncrowned Lord of the Ocean fit within this hierarchy of boats?
     Perhaps it might be more productive to consider travel routes first.
     Though Teyvat is a wide and wondrous world, there are only so many different nationalities to visit by sea. From Liyue Harbor, outgoing merchants and vacationers follow a coastal route that takes them south into the Sumeru strait that separates the region from the island nation of Inazuma. About halfway into the Sumeru strait is an inlet that segues into a rather serpentine river, one that snakes throughout a majority of inland Sumeru and finds its end in the heart of the landlocked Fontaine, the nation governed by the Hydro Archon. Of course, there are some travellers that seek a further destination, and if they dare to sail to the southernmost corner of the Sumeru coastline, they only need to round the point and bear straight west to find their way to the infamous Black Beach that constitutes Natlan’s only border with the ocean.
     Ships of all shapes and sizes enjoy the safety of these waters, though there are certain routes like the river to Fontaine that are inaccessible to larger ships and may force merchants to change vessels to continue their journey. However, the vast ocean that hugs the entirety of the Monstadt coastline (sans the frigid shallow waters of Dragonspine) and the open sea that otherwise surrounds Inazuma are not for the faint of heart or the average merchant that values their life. Unsurprisingly, it is out there that most of Captain Beidou’s heroics find their beginning.
     Then again, a gross simplification can be found within a Liyuan quote: The deeper the water, the bigger the monsters.
     The story of Beidou’s slaying of Haishan is no secret across the seas, but there are plenty of other creatures that call the ocean their home and the water’s surface their feeding ground. Most commonly used trading vessels are designed to hold more cargo and less weaponry, if any at all, making them the most ill-fated choice of ships to brave the journey to Monstadt or eastern Inazuma. Instead, these waters favor the bigger and more durable ships built with monster attacks in mind; and so this reach of the ocean is traversed and conquered by various topsail schooners and brigs geared with weapons to take on the denizens of the deep.
     That is not to say that monsters are the only danger on the high seas. Compared to the congested offshore routes taken by most sailors, the ocean is a much more lawless ground to watch over, with the respective nations finding little opportunity to exercise their legal jurisdiction over the betrayal, battles and plundering that take place so far away from their coasts. Pirates, criminals and maritime Hillichurl crews make their living in these parts, and more notably the international Treasure Hoarders conduct their own naval operations away from prying eyes. The entire region tends to be a hotbed of raiding and pillaging to a degree that even deep sea fishermen no longer approach the area, and it is no wonder that only the brave and foolhardy sail through without at least a few appropriate measures.
     It is Liyue’s fortune then that Captain Beidou sails with every and all threats in mind.
     The Crux Fleet she commands is the most armed armada that operates out of Liyue and whenever actually present to commission, is often the Liyue Qixing’s best line of naval defense. Though there have been numerous rumors that range from the government tacitly approving of Beidou’s notoriety to the Liyue Qixing outright supporting her as a state-sponsored pirate, there is no doubt that if there was grave danger to be had on the ocean, ships from the Crux Fleet were always soon to arrive and blow it all to smithereens.
     On the other hand, Beidou is more inclined to steer her fleet away from the smaller waterways and send in a single ship or two in their place. Even she is aware of what her Anchor flag represents to other nations that resent her belligerence in their waters. As such, she tends to reserve said ventures down the more popular trade routes for the traders and clients that can pay exorbitant sums to commission her for the voyage down south. After all, anyone could sail anywhere these days  --  but could they guarantee themselves a completely and consistently safe trip on their ship from start to end?
     Captain Beidou is certainly a popular figure back home among kids and merchants alike, though attempting to commission one of the most headstrong sailors in Liyue for a personal bidding only results in success if the patron is the government or of the wealthy elite. Unless Beidou issues a personal invitation to come aboard or has openings for new crewmates, there is little the common Liyuan can do to join her on her next legendary adventure.

“i can’t believe you’re up and leaving us for a month,” yeonjun sarcastically commented while helping her lug her last luggage into the mercedes van that sunwoo had been so generous enough to send to pick them up. “and from the looks of it, it doesn’t look like soobin, beomgyu, and taehyun are going to let go of the others.”
and true to his word, she looked over to see them gathered in a group hug. beomgyu clung onto yunho with teary eyes, he’s never been separated from him for a month before. yunho gently pat the younger puppy’s head with a small smile. 
she chuckled at the heartwarming scene. “guys, you’ll still be able to call and facetime. and you’re acting like we’re never coming back! we’re only going to jeju island.”
“but what if you run away with this person because they’re rich?” beomgyu asked, ignorant to her background. at his question, the other boys gasped and whipped their heads over to her. 
her smile slightly faltered, forgetting that they don’t know of her origins. she knew she’d have to come clean someday—maybe this trip was the right time to tell. 
“don’t be ridiculous, of course we are,” she gently reprimanded before coming over to ruffle beomgyu’s hair. “beomgyu’s imagination is just running a tad bit wild.”
pouting, beomgyu shifted from yunho to engulf her in a bear hug. 
“soobin and i’ll make sure beomgyu doesn’t grow any grey hairs while worrying about you guys,” taehyun jokingly reassured. he knew beomgyu well enough, even though he was an addition to the family a month ago.  
“miss, it’s about time to depart to the airport,” the driver informed with a bow. 
with a nod, she rubbed beomgyu’s head. “okay, we need to go now, bub. we’ll message you when we get there, okay?”
reluctantly nodding, beomgyu let her go. he joined soobin, taehyun, and yeonjun to see them off, waving until they not longer saw the black vehicle. 
in the car, yunho, mingi, san, and yeosang were fascinated with how fancy the interior was. there were two rows of two seats, and row with three seats in the back. the seats were so comfortable, and it was so roomy; an environment unfamiliar to the hybrids. while seonghwa and yunho knew somewhat of her background, the others wondered how she managed to afford something like this. 
“is your friend rich?” san asked, looking back to face jiyu. seating arrangements were decided by an intense game of rock-paper-scissors. in the end, yeosang and hongjoong sat in front, mingi and san were in the middle row, and jiyu was squished in between yunho and seonghwa in the back. 
“that’s one way of putting it, yes.” in truth, she was worried about how they would react to her and sunwoo’s background. most of them had come from influential families or illegal organizations to begin with. having terrible memories with them, would they change once they knew who she really was?
“but don’t worry, he’s really nice! he has a hybrid friend of his own, too. i think he said a german shepard hybrid.” yunho seemed to perk up at the thought of meeting another dog hybrid. 
“hm...if you say so. if you trust him, then we do, too,” hongjoong said before getting comfortable in the seat. 
upon arriving at the airport, the van immediately took them to the runway where a private plane was parked and waiting. she assumed it was sunwoo’s. the boys plastered their faces against the van windows at the sight of the plane. they’ve never been on one before, hence their childlike fascination. 
“are we really going on that?” san asked with excitement. “i love your friend already,” he teasingly commented. 
jiyu softly chuckled as the van came to a stop. hopping out, she saw sunwoo standing at the entrance to the plane with a hybrid she assumed was eric. catching sight of jiyu, he started climbing down the stairs. she smiled and waved to him, an action he returned with a small chuckle. 
“were you waiting long?”
he shook his head. “don’t worry, we came ten minutes ago. eric’s been eager to meet you and your—” seeing the six hybrids behind her filing out of the van, his eyes widened. he knew she had hybrids, but he didn’t really know what to expect. “you have six?”
she sheepishly chuckled. “yeah...i hope you don’t mind. they won’t bite if that’s what you’re worried about.”
on the contrary, sunwoo didn’t mind at all; it actually made her a hundred times cooler in his eyes if anything. he’s never met a girl who managed to befriend six different hybrid breeds. but then again, with her job, he should’ve seen it coming. despite that, she just kept surprising him with who she is. 
“guys, this is sunwoo,” she called out to the boys. “he’s the friend i was talking about!” 
while the boys acquainted themselves with sunwoo, the german shepard hybrid approached jiyu with a friendly smile. “hi, i’m eric! although i think sunwoo told you plenty about me already.”
jiyu giggled at the boy’s abundance of energy. “he has mentioned you a few times. i’m jiyu.”
eric enthusiastically nodded. “i’ve heard about you a lot, too! sunwoo didn’t stop talking about you for a whole week after your first meeting.”
jiyu felt her face flush at the new piece of information. “a week—”
“ji! sunwoo said there’s also video games on the plane!”
before eric could continue exposing sunwoo, yunho came bounding up to her with the others in tow. with their calm and excited demeanor, she assumed that they managed to feel relaxed and at home with sunwoo, which made her happy and relieved. 
“is that so?” she mused, rubbing the spot behind his ears. yunho nodded and giggled, pushing his head into jiyu’s hands. eric glanced at sunwoo and couldn’t help the smirk on his face at the sight of the soft look on his friend’s face. 
snapping out of his reverie, sunwoo cleared his throat. “we should get going.”
the plane ride nothing out of the ordinary—the boys were getting to know eric, while jiyu and sunwoo caught up over a glass of champagne. 
“so it seems like your friends don’t know about you yet?” sunwoo inquired. “i told eric to keep his mouth shut about it just in case.”
softly shaking her head, she quietly glanced at the hybrid group that had passed out not too long ago after expending all of their energy. “only seonghwa and yunho know about it. i never found the right time to tell the others but this trip might be it.”
mingi had sleepily wandered over towards them and plopped down next to her before laying his head on her lap. within a few minutes, his breath evened out again. 
an endearing chuckle left her lips as she threaded her fingers through his faded red hair. “ah, you big baby,” she cooed. 
sunwoo watches her with a soft smile on his face. he watches the way she gently lulls the giant bunny to sleep, the mother-like smile on her face, the gentle aura she exudes—he could go on and on. she was completely different from what he had been expecting. while they had a few brief meetings during company gatherings, she always had a blank expression, never smiling nor frowning. it was almost like she was more robot than human.
when his parents had informed him of his future marriage with her, he didn’t know how to react. a part of him would’ve been lying if he had denied feeling the tiniest bit of disdain at his fate.
but lo and behold, she managed to leave him soft and charmed with every meeting, even if this was only their second one. 
“sir, ma’am, we’ll be landing in about ten minutes. please fasten your seatbelts.” 
his pilot’s voice managed to break him out of his thoughts, leaving him to scramble to sit up straighter and cool his flushed face. 
“i should wake them up,” jiyu said, completely unaware of sunwoo’s dilemma. softly shaking mingi’s shoulder, she gently prodded him awake before relaying the pilot’s message to him. padding over to the others, she did the same.
sunwoo sighed before buckling in his own seatbelt. he needed to keep himself in check around her before he accidentally does something that would embarrass himself. this is going to be a long month.
upon arriving at the private vacation home, jiyu was already bombarded with the youngers’ pleas to go to the beach. luckily for them, the vacation home was just down the street from the beach, giving them easy access to visit whenever they wanted. 
“i’m really sorry, i hope you don’t mind,” she apologized to sunwoo for the fact that they were going to the beach the moment they put their bags down. “if you’re tired, you can stay. i can take—”
sunwoo’s soft chuckle made her pause mid-sentence. she didn’t know he was capable of making such a melodious sound. while she was still living in the main house, her friends had painted him to be an aloof person. and even from what she saw at company dinners. the daughters of other elites were always throwing themselves at him, offering him drinks and their company. 
yet every singe time without fail, he would coldly reject them.
so when yuta had told her that he was the one her father set her up with, she was doubtful if they could even be civil with each other. 
“it’s fine, i’ll go with you and the others. eric’s been pestering me to go, too so it works out.”
the soft and friendly expression was just proof to her that maybe, just maybe, she had been judging the facade he puts up.
“oh, okay then!” she smiled before scurrying to her room to change. “let’s meet back here when we’re ready!”
watching her excited like a child to go to the ocean, he couldn’t contain the smile that he had been biting back. he was glad that they could at least be friends despite the circumstances.
“stop staring at her door and go change, loverboy.”
he was bought back to reality by his best friend’s quip. throwing him a half-hearted glare, he trudged to his room. “i wasn’t staring.” even his protest was weak. 
eric couldn’t help the smirk that crosses his face. he’s known his best friend long enough to know that he never gets like this around girls. “this should be an interesting trip.”
by the time they all met back up to leave, it was two p.m.—a prime time for the sun to be out and bestowing them with it’s heat on their short walk to the beach.
“it’s the ocean!” yunho shouted with utter glee and happiness as he and eric raced each other across the sand and to the water. the others ran after them, even san who ended up straying on shore and dipping his feet in the water. hongjoong joined him as he watched over the others in the water. 
jiyu and sunwoo had found a group of beach chairs under a big umbrella and tossed their bags down. stretching her limbs, jiyu sprawled out on a chair and closed her eyes for a brief moment. hearing the ocean waves along with the cheerful shouts of the boys in the water made her smile with content. 
cracking an eye open, she caught sunwoo throwing off the white t-shirt he had on and shaking his head afterward to fix his hair. her eyes raked over his body against her own will. his lean figure, the define abs lined on his stomach, and the hints of muscles on his arm only served to have a volcano of butterflies erupt in her stomach. 
“everything okay?” he asked, leaning down towards her face.
looking away from his piercing gaze, she jumped up and quickly discarded her own outerwear before speed-walking towards the water. “yep! just great!” she definitely didn’t miss the smirk that was threatening to take over his face. 
sunwoo smirked before running to catch up with her. he couldn’t help but take note of the red two-piece she was sporting. a part of him wanted to throw his earlier discarded t-shirt over her to give her coverage from other people’s gazes that were lingering just a bit too long, but he bit back his own desire.
after all, they were just budding friends who were about to be stuck in an arranged, and potentially loveless, marriage.
but that didn’t stop him from lifting her up and tossing her into the water.
emerging back up, she had to rub her eyes to get rid of the salt water before throwing a glare towards the laughing culprit.
“kim sunwoo!” she stood up and crossed her arms across her chest like an angry child. 
“i had to—hey!”
too busy caught up in his own laughter, he failed to notice the wolf hybrid sneaking up behind him to exact revenge for jiyu. emerging up next to jiyu, shook his head to remove excess water out of his hair before looking for his culprit. seeing the proudly-smiling seonghwa on shore with his hands on his hips, he let out snort. 
“alright, you got me.”
she burst into giggles before floating on her back. looking up at the sky, there were no hints of clouds—just the endless blue that seemed to stretch out for miles on end. feeling someone tug her feet, she perked her head up to see yeosang pulling her. 
“you were floating too far out,” he informed before lightly flicking her forehead. “watch out before you float away and we’re stranded here without you,” he added with a chuckle, just barely missing the splash of water that jiyu retaliated with, before swimming off back to yunho and mingi. 
“he seems fun to be around,” sunwoo said as swam up to join her. “he reminds me of eric, only more sass.”
“yeah, i never know where his sass comes from—”
she was cut off by a huge splash of water from behind that had not only hit her, but also sunwoo. turning around, she expected it to be yeosang, san, or eric.
but no one was behind them. 
sunwoo furrowed his eyebrows. the hybrid group was at least twenty feet away from them—there was no way any of them could’ve done it since he and jiyu would’ve heard them swimming off or laughing. 
“that’s odd, who—ah!”
before jiyu could finish her sentence, a pair of arms grabbed her waist and yanked her underwater. having no time to react, she felt herself being tugged away as they started swimming with her in tow.
sunwoo swore his heart almost stopped; whether it be from the fact that it all happened so quickly or the fact that jiyu could potentially be drowning, he didn’t know. he didn’t have time to know.
“oi, what the—!”  
his scream caught the others attention. looking over, they sunwoo looking frantic pulling something up from under the water. 
but there was no jiyu. 
they all swam over with urgency, fearing something went wrong.
“where is she?” hongjoong asked, brows furrowing with panic. the others looked ready to fight what or whoever took jiyu, even yunho and mingi even though they both looked on the verge of crying. 
“something pulled her down and just...swam away!”
meanwhile, underwater, jiyu was having a ball trying to fight off what or whoever pulled her down. it was definitely a person—she felt the arms around her waist and the hard chest that was tightly pressed against her back. looking behind her she managed to make out a male with majestic, black with gold highlights. 
the lack of air snapped her back to reality from her gawking and she stared to try and pry the man’s hands off of her. as if catching onto her message, he quickly brought her back up to the surface. 
inhaling like her life depended on it and coughing out some water, she turned around and glared at whoever decided to try and almost drown her.
but before she could her a word out, she was blown away by how...pretty the man staring back at her was. with his hair tucked behind his ears, it framed his face perfectly, showing off his distinct and defined facial features.
but something else caught her eye. 
the lower half of his body was a tail. eyes flicking back and forth from the man’s face to the tail, her mouth opened and closed like fish out of water.
“a fish h-hybrid..?”
“oi, jiyu!” 
at the sound of her name, she looked behind the man to see everyone swimming up to her. it turned out that they weren’t that far away from shore—the man, or hybrid, just took her along the shoreline rather than farther out like she had originally thought. 
the unknown hybrid just watched as the seven other hybrids and sunwoo crowded her to make sure she was okay. yeosang profusely apologized, saying “i know i joked about you floating away and stranding us, but i didn’t mean to make that a reality”.
sunwoo ruffled her wet hair, breathing out a sigh of relief. “you scared me there. i thought i was going to lose you on the first day here.”
“huh? yeosang?”
at the sound of his name, yeosang turned around and practically fainted. he literally swam past him, how did he manage to miss the extremely familiar face.  he stared at the underwater hybrid, wide-eyed, like he had witnessed another miracle from the universe. the unknown man mirrored yeosang’s look.
“wooyoung?!”
