Under The Sea by JessDeaton Under The Sea by JessDeaton
Not a lot of people know who this is, but those of you who do, :star::star::star::star::star:!

I never liked Eric. He wasn't very well drawn and his character was just so boring! Here's the things I know about Eric: He's a prince, he plays the flute, he's a part-time sailor...

That's it! Nothing about his personality or where he came from or likes or anything! And the sequence where they supposedly fell in love was just one date! Really. Don't get me wrong, I love the movie, one of my top three of the disney franchise but I don't like Eric. The Little Mermaid series is one of my favorites, I grew up watching it, and I even still remember thinking that I wished she'd stayed in the ocean with Urchin instead. I know he's younger in the series but really, she was sixteen in the movie so he can't have been more than two or three years younger. Not uncommon for most couples.

The story behind this could actually be one of those 'the grass isn't always greener' stories I guess, might do a little one later if I'm still on this kick.

If you still haven't guessed who he is, it's Urchin, the little orphan boy from the Little Mermaid Tv show.

You know what? I could ride with this! To tell you the truth, I never cared much for Eric either.

Urchin! I've always been curious what he would've thought of Eric, and Ariel's whole adventure of becoming human.

To be honest I thought Urchin was a scaredy cat and I was always hoping Ariel would find a super cool Merman who was funny, adventurous, good looking, and strong. Maybe even a musician of human instruments so that Ariel would be interested in him. But still, even so I prefer Urchin to Eric. Eric was totally bland and just because Ariel couldn't talk he instantly disregarded her as his love. Pretty messed up. But this is a great pic <3

Ariel and her sisters frequently referred to Urchin as their brother so that makes this pairing a bit creepy, especially after Arista delivers this line "Urchin acts like he's our own kid brother."

It's Ariel and Urchin (if I recall correctly). :D
