Have you ever considered what would have happened if things under the sea were a little different? Maybe Ariel wouldn't have had the happy ending that Disney gave her!
If the following artist had anything to say about it, it seems like her fate with Prince Eric would have just stayed a dream. Below are five creepy fan made images that show what Ariel would have looked like if things turned out slightly...darker.
What happened to you, Ariel? Is that a dinglehopper on your hand? And is Flounder okay? He looks...different.
It looks like Ariel is one strong wave away from being torn to shreds, but her hair still looks amazing.
I've never quite seen Ariel and Ursula look like this! Just look at what Ariel was willing to do for love.
This awesome zombie Ariel makeup was done by Keaghlan Ashley and modeled by Traci Hines. Imagine walking around on Halloween looking like this! I guess it'd be more like flopping around...
Hans Christian Andersen's Ariel
In the original Little Mermaid story by Hans Christian Andersen Ursula cuts out Ariel's tongue before sending her up to land. That story is far more brutal.
I bet if these were really Ariel's fate Ursula would be feeling pretty smug. I don't know about you guys, but I think I prefer Ariel with her happy Disney ending.
