I'm not usually a fan of the whole mermaid/merman idea for stories (had a bad experience when I... Beta'd, you could say, one of my friend's work and it turned me off from the concept ever since) but I really loved this story a lot :) the characters were enjoyable (fell in love with Kuval immediately) and I loved the plot. An excellent story that I am glad I read!

Hey, I am here to share some great news! This story has been added to the Slash archive over on A Drop of Romeo!
Here's the Review:
"Helen Thinks: It is a rare pleasure to read a fantasy story,
especially one with a slash love story, and I have to say that it is delivered by OrangePanda in “The Shore Between Kingdoms”. The separate worlds of the human and the merpeople are challenged together one night when a couple of fishermen capture a merman they state were trying to tip their boat over. However, the merman is unable to be freed due to having developed legs and it would take until the next full moon for his tail to return. To prevent war between the two civilisations, Calder; advisor to the Queen; becomes a guardian for Kuval as well as showing him how different land is to the sea. What he did not expect was to develop feelings for the merman, especially when Kuval had made it clear that they could never do anything because merpeople did not allow themselves to feel like humans do. But can it really be that cut and dry?
The best thing about “The Shore Between Kingdoms” is that OrangePanda's prose helps set the scene and pace flawlessly. They manage to fit a month of activities into twelve short chapters and yet there is not the feeling that the story has been rushed which makes me want to applaud OrangePanda's writing because that can be hard to do. Another high note with OrangePanda's writing is that they just write the perfect amount of fantasy into their story. Sometimes it is easy to go overboard with the amount of lore and information that can be shared between writer and reader but this never happens in “The Shore Between Kingdoms”. Enough information is shared so that the plot is understandable and to help the story develop as the fictitious month passes by.
“The Shore Between Kingdoms” delivers with it's fantastic fantasy plot line and full roster of characters that have their own role to play in the story makes this a story that you will read in one sitting."

This, by far, has to be my favorite that you've written. That is all, think you for spending your time to create this.

Did they get married via drugged kiss? lol if that is the case then there are a lot of married people who haven't a clue...especially if you count drunk as a drugged up state cause then we're shock full of polygamists.

I enjoyed the story. Easy reading, simple but interesting plot and well developed characters. My only comment would be Calder's sudden switch from female to male attraction at the beginning. I think if you re-write that section, to indicate as a healer (of sorts) he was aware of the beauty of the male and female form, but had never before felt compelled to touch or be taken in with a kiss.
Keep writing, your are doing an excellent job. :-)

I love this! But I feel sad for Nen. Hopefully he'll find love one day. Thanks for writing and sharing this :)

Hah I'm glad there was a happy ending. Can't say it was rushed but I'm greedy and was hoping for more- an extra scene of the pair in thefuture perhaps. If wishes were fishes in the sea.. :) thanks for sharing your story.

I just read this whole story and it was amazing. I came back because I forgot to favorite it, but in order to do that on my iPod I must review. Which I have no problem with because this story was amazing!

Cute, cute and cuter! Haha, I was already in good spirits because it just started snowing, and I'm listening to good music and eating, and then you, Kuval and Calder come along!
I feel pretty bad for Nen though.. I was hesitant about him at first, but now it's kinda sad that he didn't really get a happy ending.
Still, it was great reading this
