Do warn when a fanfic may head into shipping or non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.

  • Synopsis: Even if Ariel were to want to return to the sea, even if memories of shells and coral overshadow her restless nights, even if she were to look at her children, who speak only of land matters and never of the water — even then, she cannot.

Part of Your World by isabeau

  • Recommended by Lalalei2001
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Ariel gets what she wanted... but things don't quite turn out the way she expected them to.

Learning From Past Mistakes by fringeperson

  • Recommended by Lalalei2001
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Sebastian was simply unable to keep up with Ariel, and couldn't track her bubble-trails across the ocean. King Triton took it upon himself to talk to Ariel, and for once, managed to remember that losing his temper at his youngest daughter hadn't ever worked before.

Under the Bright Blue Endless Sky by NightWrighter511
  • Recommended by Nerdman3000
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Ariel/Eric
  • Synopsis: True love doesn't happen in 3 days. What about 3 months? In this alternate storyline Ariel has 3 months to spend on land with Eric, getting to know him and what it truly means to be human. Along the way the two of them must uncover what exactly Ariel promised the sea witch in exchange for the opportunity.
  • Comments: A fantastically written alternate version of the film, that focuses on the relationship between Ariel and Eric over a period of three months rather than three days. One of the interesting parts that make this so different from the original movie is that not only does Eric know Ariel is a Mermaid from the beginning, but she also keeps her voice after she becomes human. At the same time of course, the deal with Ursula is also now different too. Overall though, this is among my favorite Little Mermaid fanfics.

Just You And Me by OzQueen

  • Recommended by lalalei2001
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Ariel/Eric
  • Synopsis: When Eric and Ariel travel to Glowerhaven, Eric finds himself fielding questions about Ariel he's not sure he has the answers to.

Voyages by Uncia

  • Recommended by lalalei2001
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Ariel/Eric
  • Synopsis: Ariel's voice didn't return when Eric kissed her in the lagoon, but that never stopped them from trying to understand. AU.

Cast Your Soul by Kali Cephirot

  • Recommended by lalalei2001
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Ariel/Eric
  • Synopsis: Then he remembers: Ariel, the Sea Witch, the fight. Eric stands up, ignoring the way his stomach churns, the heaviness in his chest much more important than that the water and a storm could cause. A different take to the ending of the movie.

Believing in Heaven by Candyland

  • Recommended by lalalei2001
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Ariel/Eric
  • Synopsis: AU, if Flotsam and Jetsam hadn't overturned the boat. Eric finds a letter to him in his wife's desk after her death. And it tells the fantastic story of a little mermaid...

Crossovers

The Little Stark by Moon Witch '96

  • Recommended by Marcus S Lazarus
  • X-Over With: Marvel Cinematic Universe
  • Status: In-Progress
  • Synopsis: Drabble Series. A curious little mermaid made the mistake of annoying a Sea Witch and a man who was made of nothing but mistakes saved her. Together they make an unlikely family, and show that the world really was changing into something unlikely. Will eventually go through the events of all the Avenger movies.
  • Comments: A short storyline, but a highly engaging one nevertheless, sticking a pre-teen Ariel in Tony Stark's life (her transformation into a human having been a punishment rather than a 'gift' from Ursula) and then watching as they form a strange family dynamic with Pepper and Rhodey, Tony finding himself unwilling to abandon this strange little girl whose life he saved and Ariel in turn coming to see Tony as a new father figure.

Come On In (The Water's Fine) by afterandalasia

  • Recommended by: Aruu
  • Crossover with: Moana
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: At nineteen, Moana Waialiki has earned the nickname “Moana of Motonui” for representing her small country at the Rio Olympic Games – and winning gold. Intending to make the most of the summer, she stays in Brazil for the Paralympics, and by chance finds herself meeting and befriending the British Paralympian Ariel Andersen. Only she does not expect what the friendship will open up into, or how deep or fast she will fall for the woman that she comes to know.
