Doone! Hopefully I’ll get a good grade in college for this hehe. Jim and Melody with their twins Neva and Blake Hawkins!
I’ve been trying to find Jim & Melody videos on youtube, and though most are quite well done, it bothers me when people use black haired Ariel as older Melody and teenage Jim - It is NOT Jim and Melody. I don’t mind it if it’s black haired Ariel and Sinbad as their older versions, but not when they use Jim and Ariel (Sorry, major Jariel hater and just can’t see it as JiMel). Excuse my little rant. It’s just I can’t watch videos like that no matter how well done they are and if in the title it says it’s JiMel.
I always come up with a new headcanon for that, haha
Normal Universe: Jim goes to Earth on a mission (probably something related to the tear of a pure and innocent mermaid). Melody can turn into a mermaid everytime she opens her locket, and is outside swimming at night, full moon. Jim is taking a tour around Denmark in his solar surfer, and flies very close to the ocean. Melody doesn’t notice him, and jumps out of the water, crashing into him. The two fall in the water, their lips meeting just barely, the pair confused at who the other was. Jim surfaces, but Mel had already swam away remembering exactly who she had sort of kissed by accident and embarrassed it had happened. Jim was still shocked he had seen a mermaid for the first time, and just swam back to his ship. (Still working out the details, but yea)
AU modern: They’re childhood friends, and when they were kids Melody would climb on the tree leading to Jim’s bedroom (and vice-versa), knocking three times on the window which was like a code between them. Even as they grew up, this didn’t stop until one day something unexpected happened…(I might write a modern universe JiMel fanfic with this plot, but I’m still pondering whether to or not. No promises. And oops, I’m expanding this answer for more than how they met, lol)
Here it is, the JiMel Halloween drawing! JiMel as T.J. and Spinelli (I also love those two)
