Princess Minerva by minties Princess Minerva by minties
Commissioned by *Merman1234

"Princess Minerva always bragged that she was the best swimmer and diver and that she was blessed by the sea gods themselves. So another princess dared Minerva to look for the King Neptune's sea box, while other princesses and princes look on. She couldn't back down so she took on the challenge. She was given a total of five days to find it, she found it on the fourth day and she tried to bring it up but it was too heavy. But she clearly saw a lock on the box, on the fifth and final day she brought a hammer and chisel to break the lock. She broke the lock and in an instant was transformed into a manta mermaid."

~ Story by Phil Velasquez

It's amazing! Also for all the people saying they' et heard the name before, Minerva is the more tame, goddess of crafts Roman version of Athena.
