Real talk: The mermaids that live in Never Land aren’t the friendliest bunch. In fact, they remind of us some teenagers we’ve met before. It may not be their fault that they’re popular, but it’s totally their fault when they attempt to drown Wendy.
Wendy is the equivalent to the new kid in town.
Look how excited she is to meet the mermaids, bless her heart.
But Wendy fails to notice that the mermaids are a bit self-absorbed.
And by “a bit” we mean really, really self-absorbed.
We can’t deny that they’re cool.
We kind of want to be them, we’ll admit it.
They’re ever-so-slightly boy crazy.
Ladies, please. Less is more.
And as far Peter, he completely forgets Wendy exists in the mermaids’ presence.
She can’t fly, Peter! You had one job.
But then the mermaids spot Wendy.
Jealousy doesn’t even begin to describe the reaction.
Instead of attempting to convince Peter to dislike Wendy as much as they do…
…they just attempt to drown her.
Wendy maintains her consummate British politeness throughout.
“Oh, but please! I’m not dressed [for swimming]!” How is her biggest worry right now her lack of bathing suit?
Oh, and let’s talk about Peter’s reaction:
As if the mermaids haven’t already done enough, it’s at this point that the splashing beings.
If you’re a girl, then you know that getting your hair wet when you don’t want it to be wet is basically the worst thing that could ever happen.
Wendy has now had enough, and takes matters into her own hands.
Do not mess.
Finally, Peter decides to actually do something productive.
Yet, still insists that the mermaids were only having a little fun.
Then Captain Hook sails by, frightening the mermaids back under the water.
And how is it, even after all that that, we’re still really jealous of their hair?
