Glaucus UnburdenedScylla was hideous. Hideous and hungry and insane. And still Glaucus loved her. He had given his binding oath. Circe couldn't undo it, Poseidon couldn't undo it; Zeus himself couldn't undo it. The only course was to wait until the conditions were filled.
The first condition was met long before the second. Aquariums were enough for seaweed to grow on mountaintops. The forests on the seafloor would take much longer.
It wasn't that Glaucus pined, exactly. He went about day to day, he smiled and laughed and was generally happy. Who wouldn't be, with all the ocean to play in?

Light, so light, euphoric, high,
Laughing with the silken sky,
Come with me and ride the Night,
'Til She gives birth once more to Light.
Keep in Touch!
