Me: Ciao! I'm back with another spamano story and it's not a oneshot this time. Aren't you bros proud of me? TT u TT
Lovino: No =_=
Me: *sulks in the corner*
Antonio: I'm proud of you... OuO
Me: Yay! okay, random story time. I've wanted to write a story with mer!romano and pirate!spain for quite some time, but never got to it because I felt like I was copying one of my favorite artists on Deviantart, who was writing a spamano version of the little mermaid (and drawing some fucking awesome art for it), so i was like, no. But in french class, I came up with an awesome and original plot! Yea...I get ideas in the randomest of places,
Lovino: Buona storia, fratello, now will you get on with the story already?
Antonio: Yuzuki doesn't own Hetalia, so don't sue her, por favor.
3rd person POV
A man stood alone on the beach, near a port in the outskirts of a town in Italy. The cold ocean breeze blew his long dark brown hair back and forth. Green eyes stared intently at the note written on a piece of paper.
Hello to whoever gets this! Ah, who am I kidding? No one will probably find this stupid thing. Anyway, I heard an old legend from a friend of mine. She said that if someone writes a wish on a piece of paper, puts it in a bottle, and throws it in the ocean, that wish will come true. I'm not really the type of person to believe in that kind of stuff, but I decided to do this anyway, despite not having a wish I really want. - Antonio
Antonio rolled up the paper and put it inside a small glass bottle, sealing it with cork. He then gently placed the bottle in the water, letting the waves carry it farther into the ocean. Antonio watched as the bottle drifted away, disappearing silently into the horizon.
"Antonio!" A voice called out, breaking the silence.
Antonio turned around, seeing a blond woman walking his way. "Oh, hello, Bella."
"What are you doing?" Bella asked, making her usual cat face.
"Nothing." the Spaniard replied.
The Belgian gave Antonio a skeptical look. "Really now?"
Antonio laughed. "Okay, I lied."
"So, what were you really doing?"
"I was throwing a message in a bottle into the ocean."
"Ah, so you tried out that thing I told you about. What did you wish for?" Bella asked.
"I didn't wish for anything, just wrote a random note, because I didn't know what else to write." Antonio replied.
"Do you have a wish you really wanted?"
Antonio shook his head. "Are you sure?" Bella asked.
"Yes, I'm sure. I'm happy with what I have now."
"But wouldn't it be nice to have someone to keep you company. Being a pirate captain must be stressful and lonely, especially when the whole crew does nothing but work and get drunk."
"But at least they're doing what expected of them."
"You're missing the point, Toni." Bella sighed.
"But I do admit, I get stressed and lonely sometimes." Antonio said.
"See? Why didn't you wish for a nice girl to love, or a man if you go that way." Bella teased.
Antonio blushed. "Bella, please stop teasing me."
The blond giggled. "Okay."
"Where's everybody else, by the way?" Antonio asked.
"Most of the crew is getting drunk somewhere as usual. Abel, Lili, and Vash are still on the ship." Bella explained.
"Okay, as long as they don't get into trouble, we're good." Antonio sighed.
"You seem tired."
"I am. I'm going to retire for tonight. Buenas noches."
Bella smiled. "Goedenacht"
Antonio woke up early in the morning while it was still dark outside. Not wanting to wake anybody up, he quietly got dressed and went for a stroll on the beach. He looked over at the ocean, watching the white-tipped waves crash onto the shore then retreat. The sun began peeking over the horizon, painting the sky light blue, bright yellow and orange and light pink. Antonio was amazed by the view that he didn't see where he was going and tripped on something.
"Oww..." He groaned. "What the hell did I trip on anyway?"
A glare caught his eye and his eyes landed on a glass bottle covered in salt. Inside it was a rolled up piece of paper. Antonio picked it up and pulled off the cork. His eyes skimmed the letter for a bit, then he realized it was the same exact note he wrote the day before. This time there was something else written under it.
If you thought no one would find this, you're wrong. This stupid fucking thing hit me on the head, bastard!
Antonio raised an eyebrow. 'This person has quite a foul mouth' he thought before he continued reading.
Ah, I'm really bored, so I might as well reply to your stupid letter, dammit. I've heard of that story. It's bullshit. I've tried it. -Lovino
Antonio just stared at the note in disbelief. He only wrote the message because he was bored, but he didn't think someone would find it or even reply if they did. Feeling the need to write a reply, he put the note back into the bottle and ran back to his ship, where he was greeted by many crew members who've already started working.
"Kesesese, guten morgen, Toni!"
"Oh, buenos días, Gilbert, Francis." Antonio said.
"Where were you? Everybody was worried sick and I had to calm everybody down." Roderich, the navigator, scolded.
Antonio laughed nervously. "Lo siento. I woke up early and I didn't want to wake anybody up, so I just went for a walk."
The Austrian huffed and walked away. "Prissy little princess." Gilbert muttered under his breath. Antonio and Francis snickered.
"Well, if you'll excuse me, I have something to do really quick." Antonio said, making his way to the captain's quarters. He went over to his desk, grabbed a quill pen, and began writing.
Hola, Lovi! Encantado de conocerte. About the bottle hitting you in the head, lo siento. You really didn't have to reply to this. I just made it because I was bored, but I guess it would be nice to have someone to talk to. Oh, you tried making a wish? What did you wish for? -Antonio
Antonio put the message in the bottle and went back up on deck. He looked around to see if anyone was watching. When he saw that the coast was clear, he threw the bottle into the ocean.
Somewhere in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, a man floated on the surface of the water, sleeping peacefully. His little nap didn't last very long, as a rather big wave splashed on him, waking him up. His golden eyes glared at the ocean. "Fuck you, ocean!" All he heard were the seagulls crying in response. The man silently cursed before he dove into the ocean, letting his lower body stick out of the water. Where his legs should've been, there was a red-orange tail instead. He brought his tail down with a loud splash and resurfaced.
'Good job, Lovino. You've finally managed to do an underwater handstand. Now your stupid brothers can't make fun of you anymore.' He thought to himself, smirking.
Lovino noticed something floating in the water far away from him. As it drifted closer to where he was, he could see that it was a bottle. He swam over to it and tried to grab it, but the waves keep carrying it out of his reach. After a few attempts the catch the bottle, he finally caught it.
"So that bastard actually sent a reply." he said to himself as he looked at the bottle. The corners of his mouth pulled upward, forming a smile, but it quickly disappeared.
He dove into the water again and swam deeper into the dark abyss. He saw his two brothers playing around the cold, dark cave they called home.
"Ve, fratello you're back!" Feliciano exclaimed, swimming over to his older brother to hug him.
"Get off of me, idiota." Lovino said angrily.
"But I don't want to." the other merman whined.
Lovino groaned and pushed his brother off of him, earning a sad sounding 've' from Feliciano.
Though he doesn't act like it, Lovino really cares for his brothers. Since he's the older brother, he didn't have much of a choice but to take care of them after their parents and grandfather died. There's Feliciano, the second oldest brother, only three years younger than Lovino. Some people might mistake him and Lovino as twins, few differences being Lovino's hair is darker than Feliciano's and their curls are on opposite sides of their heads and the colors of their tails make them easy to distinguish, as Feliciano's tail is orange, unlike Lovino's reddish-orange tail. Then there's seventeen-year-old Marcello, the youngest one with dirty blond hair with a box-like curl sticking out, green eyes, and a green tail. He's a bit of a flirt and very mischievous, but he can get serious when he wants to.
"So, what's that?" Marcello asked, pointing to the bottle in Lovino's hand.
Lovino quickly hid the bottle behind his back. "Nothing."
"It doesn't look like nothing." Marcello said, snatching the bottle.
"Hey! Give it back, Marci."
Marcello stuck his tongue out."Come and get me if you want it back."
Suddenly a small gray seal comes out of nowhere and grabs the bottle with its mouth, then drops it into Lovino's hands.
"Grazie, Katarina." Lovino said, giving the seal a pat on the head. Katarina barks happily in response.
"By the way, isn't it your turn to catch breakfast today, Marcello?" Feliciano asked.
"Why did you have to remind me?" Marcello whined.
"Too bad, you have to do it and if you come home with just a few clams and not actual fish, I'll hurt you." Lovino threatened.
Marcello sighed. "Fine."
Lovino sat alone in the cave since Feliciano went to go play somewhere and Marcello went to find food. He took the note out of the bottle and read it, then wrote:
First of all, what the fuck is a 'Lovi'? My name is LOVINO, got it? Second of all, what I wished for with that stupid bottle is none of your business. God, you're more annoying than my brothers, but piacere di conoscerti anche. -Lovino
Lovino took the bottle and swam up to the surface. He threw the bottle as far as he could and watched it drift away.
'Hopefully, this gets to that damn bastard.'
Me: Done! That took a lot less time than I expected...
Lovino: *yawns* That was shit.
Me: Do I need to get my tomahawk, cause I'll tomahawk chop your ass if I have to. By the way you need to tell the readers to review this.
Lovino: Who would wanna review this shitty story?
Me: *threatens with tomahawk*
Lovino: CHIGI! Fine. Si prega di rivedere.
Me: Oh, by the way, I'm planning on adding more pairings in this besides Spamano and one of them is AusHun. I wanna do AustriaxMale!Hungary, beacause probably no one has done that before, but I don't want FrancexSeychelles to be the only straight pairing, so I'm leaving it up to you bros. AustriaxHungary or AustriaxMale!Hungary?
AND ANOTHER BY THE WAY, I drew art for this story, it's on my deviantart. My Deviantart name is the same as my fanfiction name so it shouldn't be too hard to find. Don't worry, I'm planning on drawing more art for this story, so keep a lookout for 'em C:
