Hi everyone, I hope you have all recovered from your holiday festivities and have found some quiet time for yourself. I have a question? Beards or no beards.
Now the reason I ask is simple. Nereus, my gorgeous merman in On The Brink (Coming January 10th) is inspired by the wonderfully sexy looking Brock O’Hurn. Most pictures of him highlight his lovely hair and his scruff. As I personally am not a fan of scruff, it was always my intention, when Nereus was mated, to have him shave it off.
But I met opposition to that idea. Apparently a lot of you like the scruff. So, before I decide if the shaving scene is a good idea or not, I wanted you guys to vote on it. Here are two pictures of the darling Brock (or for my purposes, Nereus). Which one do you prefer?
This is Merman with Teilo, one of his mates. As you can see, he is drop-dead droolworthy with a scruff.
But my friend Phil, found me a picture of him without it – well almost completely clean-shaven.
Brock/Nereus was a lot younger in this second photo, but personally I think the older version could benefit from a chat with a razor. What do you think?
Stay safe for New Year:)
