Martha had always played by the rules, until she met a beautiful woman with some very concerning things to say about the government.
I asked for a story where memory wipes really could take that away from you, and this story delivers, with dystopia and love and catastrophe!
I got matched on Seanan McGuire's song "How Much Salt," and I found the liner notes very intriguing: The Little Mermaid and her mother, and a story that never ends. I thought that was really neat, and this story resulted: a slant look at "The Little Mermaid," informed by the song, from the point of view of the princess whom the prince marries.
Many thanks to sprocket for beta, and to rymenhild for Reasons. :)

The mermaid had, in her own way, been truthful with me from the very beginning.
