First topic message reminder :

The water was calmer today than it had been last time, or at least it seemed that way to the dimly-colored ducklett floating on the water's surface. Simon had been here before; he had stumbled upon this dungeon by chance long ago and he had enjoyed his visit. ...Granted, his visit had been in large part focused on the struggle of a very kind Vaporeon's struggle with her fear of water, so he felt like he hadn't experienced this place to the fullest just from that one visit and the glimpses he had caught drove him to investigate further. That, and he had been made very aware of one skill that he was currently very lacking in during his last experience: swimming.


Duckletts were supposed to be incredibly adapt to swimming. He had seen his mother do dives to lake bottoms for food quite readily when he was a child, and his dad... well his dad didn't swim he was pretty sure. Regardless, he should have been quick to take to the whole "diving" thing, but when the opportunity approached him he had still opted to float. How silly was that? Simon felt a little ashamed every time he thought about it. When testing himself in the small pond, he had found his small lung capacity to be only a fraction of the incredible lengths that his mother could manage. He wore himself down fairly quickly when he dove. When he saw that, he began to feel as if he was letting her down. He didn't feel right just letting it go; he was supposed to be good at swimming. This was his mission now: to train himself in water and hone his natural talent.

Simon really felt at peace in this dungeon, even perhaps on a comparable level to the peace he felt at home. He had to try and ignore the incredibly pronounced feeling of loneliness while he was out here, however. On land, he was fairly content with being alone. He missed having friends, but there was always another pokemon around in his vicinity to give him hope. There was typically someone near enough for him to him to feel like there was a chance to meet someone.

Out in the ocean, however... the area was far less populated, at least on the surface. There just weren't pokemon out here, and those that were there were inaccessible to him because of how he had left his abilities neglected. Here he really had solitude, and it was a fairly large concept to grasp. ...So he didn't grasp it just yet. Instead, he focused on his diving practice. It began with deep breathing like his mother had taught him, to open up his lungs. He needed to be at his very peak capacity before he tried to go under the surface. Once he felt like he was comfortable, he gave his wings a few test flaps. His mother had instructed him that he really didn't need to use his wings for a casual swim, although he could beat them once or twice for a quick boost of speed or a change of direction. More importantly, they were useful for getting him under the water's surface in the first place.

"Fly into your dive.... but don't have too sharp of an angle, don't make a brunt impact..." Simon repeated to himself in his head. He lifted himself out of the water and caught the wind with a few wingbeats, still not entirely sure he understood what all of that meant. His mother had said it would be a skill that came with practice, so he assumed that it would become clearer when he tried it.

And he tried it.

He dove through the air from a relatively low height, keeping himself angled by ungracefully fanning and retracting his wings. He couldn't get a grip on what felt right, but he did at least have a sensation of what was too much and what was too little. Especally when his shallow angle caused him to catch the water's surface and skim a few feet rather than actually peirce it. Ow. He had to recover himself for a moment after that. It had been a disappointing first go, but Simon supposed that it had kind of been a cool thing to pull off by it's own right. He had also learned something about the process - another good twist. He just needed to try again.

This time, he managed to get into the water... although a bit crudely and definitely with the impact he was trying to avoid. Simon understood what his mother had been talking about now; already he had halved the stamina he had come down with. He had made it though, he supposed. He wasn't too deep yet, but already he could see the beautiful corals that the place was named for. Since he was down here, he figured he could use the opportunity to get a grip on his bearings.

The otter shouldn’t really speak, right now, as his lungs burned heavily with them being quite empty. However, not talking would be more worrying.”I... I used... a Trawl Orb... That brings items...” He was interrupted by the Horsea, looking over to it...

It did make him worry that their new location is seaweed, as they might acciidentally be grabbed, once again. And at the otter’s current air, that most likely would be the end if them. But there was no other options to avoid being attacked by the Carvanha... He swam into the seaweed quickly...

He looks outside slowly to see the Carvanha look around. “Where are you...” It called out, trying to keep hidden. The Oshawott tried not to give himself away, but due to the Skrelp’s earlier attack... ”M... Mmph... blrm...” He was close to crying for breath, hoping the Horsea would help fill his empty chest. Before it’s too late...

It was honestly a relief to be out of the open water for a while. With the Horsea not making any negative advances on them, Simon felt that he could let himself relax just a bit. Only a bit, though, as he could still hear the Carvanha nearby, calling out and generally being ominous. It was enough to make the feathers on Simon's back crawl. He was already tired. He had wasted a lot of energy thrashing around and fighting that Skrelp… and not to mention, his chest was burning. He looked over and saw Tempo was in desperate need as well. Both of them were struggling... but surfacing was not an option with that brutish thief still on their tales. He completely lost the calm that he had just allowed himself a moment ago. Were they going to drown down here?! He had never meant for this to happen on a light-hearted excursion...

He turned to the Horsea pleadingly, who at this point had been allowing the two adventurers time to recover. "Hey, you helped us before... Please, do you know if we can find air down here somewhere?" he begged in a whisper, using his own dwindling supply. The Horsea seemed to have expected this. She stepped up immediately and nodded.

"Say no more. I can help," she whispered back. "I know Bubble, I can give you some air using that. Just... try to catch them as quickly as possible!! If they start to float too high they could give away our position!" She made sure that both Simon and Tempo were ready, and then sent a few bubbles of fresh air their way. Simon gladly gulped up enough bubbles to fill his lungs, savoring the feeling of having fresh air fill his chest once more. It had been very close... what would they have done if this Horsea hadn't shown up?!?

"Thank you!!" he whispered estatically.

The Horsea nodded kindly, limiting the amount of talking she was doing with a dangerous predator in the area. "Come on, we need to get out of here! This seaweed bed goes all the way to the edge of a shallow underwater canyon, we can sneak there and get away if we're cautious."

Simon nodded. It seemed like the best plan at this point. He turned around to check on Tempo's condition before going anywhere, though. "Are you okay to go, Tempo? Can you make it?"

The Oshawott was quite desperate for breath, now, kicking and just about crying for help... which is why his ears perked up when he heard the Horsea mention he can give them air. It's relieving to the otter, but only a little. After he gasps for breath with the bubbles, his face changed from strain to relief, his lungs once again filled with fresh air. "Thanks..." He whispers to the Horsea after getting his air.

As relieving as air was to him, he's still exhausted from their encounter, but his rest did allow him to regain a little energy. Enough to swim out and follow the Horsea. They needed to hurry, though. Even with a seemingly limitless supply of air, the Horsea could still grow too tired to use Bubble. Not to mention the more they get air, the more likely their lungs will tire out, too... "I'll watch our backs, you go on ahead, alright?" He whispered to them as he headed out.

Simon also followed the Horsea through the seaweed with the same amount of urgency, but all the time it was hard to focus with the looming threat of the above him. He tried to be as quiet as he could possibly be while still moving fast, but honestly he could only hope that it was enough. A couple of times, it seemed like the angry fish had passed just above his head, which was enough to make Simon's heart race in fear and it made it so much harder for him to actually keep quiet. All of the stress building up in the back of his throat was just barely being held back, and every spike in his blood pressure made it that much worse.

Fortunately (?) for Simon and the other two pokemon, another seedy-looking Skrelp came up to the Carvanha as he patrolled around looking for them, looking rather quite pissed at the fish's intrusion. "What exactly are you doing here?" she demanded, "This isn't your spot. Get back to where you belong!!"

The Carvanha bared his fangs back at her. "Lighten up, would ya? I'm trying to finish a score that started on my ground!! Plus I have a revenge exception because my partner got knocked out, so cool your freakin' jets."

The Skrelp most certainly did not cool her jets; in fact, she proceeded to get more frustrated. "That's not how it works, you dunce!! This whole "rule" thing is convoluted as hell and nobody actually uses it. It's not fair! Finder's keepers is the only real rule, so step off and get out unless you want trouble."

As it turned out, the Carvanha did want trouble. The two thieving pokemon proceeded to get into a large fight that allowed Simon, Tempo, and the Horsea the perfect widow to escape through the seaweed and into the nearby canyon. It was actually quite calm and serene in the deeper area. Despite the depth, the water was actually slightly warmer thanks to a small current passing through the landmark that carried warmth from shallower areas into the depth. Even here, the "trees" of coral grew on the walls and filled the bottom of the canyon, masking it's true depth. The Horsea sighed in relief as they finally decended into this tranquil zone.

"My apologies for what happened to you... Unfortunately, the forests have been slightly overrun with those types these days..." she explained with apologetic regret. "There are lots of good items to find around here... which usually attracts explorers, but it also very much attracts thieves who exploit those explorers so that they don't have to do the work themselves..." She sighed, but she did not slow down. "Even though we've made it here, we should keep moving. There are more friendly pokemon down here, but they're a bit down the way and it wouldn't be unlike the thieves to risk coming down here to find you. There are some vents down here that release bubbles should you need more air an I can't reach you, so that's helpful~"

"Oh, okay," Simon agreed, though he was a bit dismayed. He had honestly been looking forward to the opportunity to rest. That being said he also didn't want to have another run-in with the crook up top, nor did he want to have a first encounter with the crook that was fighting him. So he followed along, trying to visually confirm those vents that the Horsea had been talking about along the seafloor. "So... those thieving pokemon are a common occurrence around here?" he asked her before adding, "O-oh! And I forgot to say; My name's Simon! Thank you for rescuing us!"

The Horsea turned her head as much as she could and smiled. "My name's River. Don't worry about that, we do what we can~ As for the thieves... well, honestly, it's been worse than it ever has."

On the way through, however, one piece grabs a hold of the Oshawott’s leg. Not only is the threat of the theieves and drowning still present, now he can’t move! It took all his willpower to not scream for help, but... he notices it was... making him more energized? After a while, it let go. Was this what the Ducklett encountered...? Wait, he needed to catch up to his friends... He swam up to the group quickly.

[+5 Emergy: 5 Total]

Just in time, too! The Horsea gave an explanation to what when wrong. “I... can understand that, honestly. I found some cool things last time I was here. When... I wasn’t scared for my life... I’m Tempo. Nice to meet you!” The otter finished. But now what do they do? Should they try and bail for the surface or hide out? If they stay and grow too exhausted, they’ll drown... But if they’re caught on the way to the surface... He looks over to Simon. ”Should we head out of this ocean? I’ve been swimming enough to know that even with a steady supply of air, eventually our lungs will grow too exhausted to continue...”
