What are you wating for?

This Project is based on my modern take of the selkie a mythological creatures found in Irish, Scottish, Faroese, and Icelandic folk lore. Capable of therianthropy, the selkie are said to live as seals in the sea but shed their skin to become human on land. The stories frequently revolve around female selkie being coerced into relationships with humans by someone stealing and hiding their sealskin, often not regaining the skin until years later upon which they commonly return to the sea, forsaking their human family. The legend is most common in the Northern Isles of Scotland.
