I actually wrote this story some time ago, as a reaction to watching the movie Ponyo. While visually it was quite stunning, especially that opening sequence, the whole notion of children promising to love each other forever bothered me. Sure, there have in fact been people who met as kids and had a lifelong romance. However, that sort of thing happens much much more often in fiction than reality.

I know it's a kid's film.. but has anyone ever actually read folktales with mermaids in them? They don't end happily. In fact, it's pretty much always the human who screws things up and the mermaid gets her heart broken.
