If Stanley is eating all the town’s garbage, imagine all the poop that must be building up in the bottom of the harbor o.O
DO NOT THINK ABOUT SEA MONSTER POOPS. IT WILL DO YOU NO GOOD.
we have delved too deep into the lore, and awoken the idea of sea monster poops
What if Stanley’s digestive system alchemically converts waste into gold? Or water? Or mead!?
—————Stanley’s Finest Mead—————-
Ignorance Has Never Been so Rewarding
Poop doesn’t just build up. It gets broken down by bacteria. Sea creature poop is also eater by other tinier critters
The more you know~
Just as a side note, reading back into questions – I really love how in-universe, a lot of the answers to questions like these are “Who knows?”. The fact that the Liverpool Avalon is basically held together with cleverness and general cooperation and a bit of good fortune – instead of, say, an ancient mystical barrier or the standard fantasy trope – is really cool storywise. It’s also cool how in a lot of places, there’s no actual answer to be had, like “Why can Anthony be a harpy when they’re all female?” being answered with “Because magic does weird stuff sometimes, idk!”.
It gives this real sense that the mythical creature community is just a bunch of normal folks trying to get by, who also happen to be mythical creatures. And that’s a cool dynamic.
