Linked Up

See if you can find the common thread:

More of the big guys still undiscovered in the ocean, but little chance of the Loch Ness turning up, or so they say.

A report on ten new species, though a little long on propaganda and a little short on information about the individual species.  Eight and four are my favorites.

And this one on Scottish folklore.

So what’s the connection?  If you followed the links you might be noticing that there’s something of an A=B, B=C, so A=C thing going on with the link being newly discovered species and the Loch Ness monster.

Well, nice try.

The connection is world building, of course!  Specifically, a world were the inhabitants of the ocean have just as much ecological, sociological and cultural significance as those found on land.  The world will probably also incorporate my Mer, Meru peoples, of which Keela’s story is a part.  ‘Twil be fun.
