Kicking his fins, Link plunged further into the dark waters.

Having explored much of the planet by now and seeing most of what there was to see, he had started venturing into places where few dared to go. Underwater around the Ship Graveyard was one of them. As one of the more prominent landmarks out on the ocean, the cluster of shipwrecks attracted all kinds of aquatic creatures seeking new homes. They hid well in the darkness and hunted prey here. Most divers sought brighter, friendlier waters.

Equipped to explore below the surface - thanks to his Zora Armor - and armed to the teeth, Link decided to brave the deep blue.

A Clawitzer jetted past him as he swam, disappearing into a hole torn into the submerged hull of a ship. Instead of following, Link left it be and continued through a forest of rusting metal and rotting wooden planks. No sooner had he emerged on the other side did a dolphin of some kind approach him curiously, no doubt wondering what a land-dweller was doing underwater.

In some unspoken agreement, they ended up exploring together, finding themselves under the upside-down deck of what looked like a grand luxury vessel in its lifetime. Barnacles now encrusted its surface, with fish and eels peeking out through whatever nooks and crannies they had made their homes in. What man lost, nature reclaimed.

Flemeth
© Jessica // CURRENTLY Offline


Exploration was one of the things that Flemeth did a lot of that she didn't do back home. Back in Thedas, she normally kept herself busy by other means, though she did explore most of the continent already centuries ago. Things didn't quite change as much as humans liked to believe they did, especially not when they spent so much of their time warring among themselves. But, there was so much to see in this new world that Flemeth rarely stayed in one place for too long.

Of course, if one was really looking for her, they could always hop onto the Flying Pussyfoot. It was by far her favourite place to be. Trains were so fascinating.

Today, she found herself standing on the top of a partially sunken vessel. It looked like one of those ones that would have been grand back when it was built, but the ocean was not doing it any favours. It was upside down now, so she technically stood on its bottom. She wanted to explore the depths around the ship graveyard, as there was always something interesting to find there. New ships came, old ones fell apart to the ocean's faraway floor. New creatures were warped here from wherever the Goddess stole them from.

All sorts of fun things.

Of course, Flemeth needed to swim to go see what was inside of the vessel. Luckily for Flemeth, swimming wasn't a problem when you were a shapeshifter.

Flemeth took a small jump off the boat and into the water. By the time she hit the surface, she was a large shark.

Link heard a splash at the surface. It wasn't the minor ones caused by leaping fish or diving birds; this one had substance to it. Turning, he noticed a shark descending in the water. A rather large one, too. His dolphin friend had also noticed it, for she clicked what sounded like a warning to him. But she didn't approach it or make any moves to attack, instead circling around the area and waiting to see what the shark did.

Plenty of people were afraid of sharks, but Link wasn't one of them. Sharks were, like many of the creatures on the planet, misunderstood. They deserved to be treated with respect like everyone else. Unless it was starving, it wasn't going to suddenly attack them like so many stories would claim. Give it some space and hopefully, it would do the same, provided that nobody looked like food to it.

Link felt like there was something odd about this shark, though...

Flemeth

Flemeth liked the way the water rushed past her as she swam. She wasn't often swimming, and when she was, it was normally in rivers, ponds or lakes. When Flemeth needed to cross something large like the ocean, she was often flying. Flying was something she really enjoyed. But, she enjoyed swimming too. Maybe she should do it more often than she did.

As she moved farther through the water, she noticed she was not alone. Ahead of her, she was able to make out two other living people. Relatively. One was a dolphin. The other one was...

Link. It had been quite a while since she'd seen him. But, the world was a big place and it was likely for people t run into each other and then never meet again. It was always interesting to her to see people more than once, especially when she wasn't going out of her way to find them. Which, she rarely needed to. And, why would she? There wasn't anything special about a lot of these people that she met that she needed to go out of her way to see them.

But, Link was interesting to her, so it was nice to see him again. He probably didn't recognize her though, and speaking as a shark was a difficult thing to do.

Quickly, she shifted back to her witch form before shifting back. There. He should know who was she now.

The shark was actually Flemeth. Link didn't feel surprised over that revelation. It was a little difficult to feel surprised over many of the things that people living here were capable of doing. Occurrences that would be strange anywhere else happened so often here that it was normal. Anyone you met could possibly be a shapeshifter.

Including himself.

Unable to speak underwater, he nodded in recognition and then looked back at the ship they were currently underneath. Sensing that the shark wasn't there to harm them, the dolphin swam over, squeaking and pointing at a doorway with her snout. Its frame and surrounding wall had been damaged, most likely when it crashed. If they were going to explore this upside-down vessel, then that was their gateway inside.

Link glanced at Flemeth. Was she planning on tagging along?

Link recognized her. Good. She wasn't sure what would happen if he didn't, but there could have possibly been a fight. Flemeth wouldn't have wanted to kill Link since he was pretty high on her 'do not kill' list in this world, so when she did kill him she might have shred a single tear. If Flemeth wasn't a shark, she may have laughed at the thought.

She hadn't cried in centuries.

Well, since she was here, she might as well join whatever it was Link and his dolphin companion was up to. Flemeth swam to the opening that was found. She paused for a moment, listening. It was interesting since sharks weren't particularly good listeners, but she was still a person and she knew more about sensing unknown dangers than a regular shark.

She didn't note anything in there so she swam inside. For now, there was still a bit of light from the surface to see by, but she didn't quite need that. Again, creature of the deep, able to navigate its own waters. Not that sight was the only way for her to do that. From what she did see, this place was a mess.

Flemeth had gone inside and Link followed, giving himself a push forward by kicking both his fins at once. The dolphin had quickly gone back to the surface to catch another breath of air before returning, cheerfully following after her new friends and making inquisitive noises at certain things that she came across. She would've never seen what the interior of this ship was like before it sank. Everything was foreign to her.

Everything was also upside-down, just like the exterior. The floors were now their ceilings and vice-versa. Some of the furnishings had been secured in place, while the rest were broken - either from when the ship sunk or deteriorating over time - and their pieces were heaped up or scattered. The most intact surfaces Link could see were metal, rusting as it was. There was barely any wood, for both the water and the worms burrowing through the material had already eaten much of it away.

If he hadn't seen the exterior of the ship, just looking down these corridors and counting off the rooms were enough to give him an idea of how huge this vessel was. Just how many people had it been designed to carry?

Flemeth

The shark that was Flemeth cut through the water quite easily, and she liked the feeling of the smoothness against her skin. She was streamlined to swim through it nicely too; she doubted it would feel so good against the raggedy flesh of her witch form.

And, no one would like to see an old woman in her skivvies swimming, even in such a place.

But, that wasn't the most interesting thing to be had here. Swimming through this swim, Flemeth was able to tell that this ship was not from a world like her own. The people of Thedas would not be able to design a ship so huge that could carry so many. It was one of the reasons armies needed fleets to cross oceans. With a ship in this, they wouldn't need a fleet but a ship or two. If Flemeth was ever concerned about invaders who weren't darkspawn, then she would have found such a sight worrisome.

Fortunately, she wasn't concerned.

She wanted to see something interesting here. That was why she was here to begin with. All she needed to do was locate it, which was easier said than done in such a big space.

Link had to wonder just what had happened to this ship that caused it to end up in the Graveyard. Did it crash into something? Did its engines stop working? Something else? He wished he knew a little more about ships, but there was nothing in Hyrule that was like this.

They drifted through the shipwreck, finding a few interesting objects, but mostly live fish that had made the ship their home. Then they entered the dining hall.

Like the ship itself, this room was huge. Intricate floor tiles covered the surface above their heads. Below them, a jumble of pieces - tables, chairs, encrusted metal utensils and shattered plates. Some human bones, picked clean and scattered by those who now lived here. What was once such a lively area was now a graveyard.

And yet, that wasn't what caught Link's eye.

Spotting a huge hole near the center, he swam over to it, being careful in case something was lurking in ambush there. Its edges were neat to the point of looking rather unnatural. When Link peered down, he found that he could see all the way to the ocean beyond. Above, the hole cut through even more floors, ending with a view of the water's surface.

This hole went right through the entire ship. What had caused it?

Flemeth swam about the ship, exploring it. The ship wasn't from a time period like her own, and she thought it would have been nice to poke around in it. Unfortunately, she did not currently possess hands and her fins weren't ever going to be useful in such a task. It was a shame, but she was sure she would live with it.

She returned to see what Link and his dolphin companion had found. There was a hole cut through the ship, one that was perfectly neat and seemed to cut clean through the ship both ways. Oh? This was something she thought of as fascinating. She didn't think a man-made hole could look so nicely done. Even magic would have trouble making the edges so neat and tidy. A tool needed to be used for this. But what kind of tool and why was it done? Was it done before the ship had sunk? Or after it?

Oh, a mystery! Flemeth sure did enjoy a good mystery every now and then.

She couldn't talk at the moment but she wanted to swim through it, just to see. She bumped Link lightly with her nose before she went down, heading to the visible ocean floor below. Maybe there was something there she could find that would give some sort of answer.

So they were going down. Exchanging a glance with the dolphin as she swam past him, Link dived into the neat hole that went through the entire ship, following Flemeth as she made her way to the other end. Even before they got there, it was an interesting sight. The ship's many floors were layers to the walls of this hole, and they were able to see most of them. Rooms and hallways and places that passengers probably didn't go or even think about.

Each floor they passed through added to the awe that something had been capable of cutting through all of this so neatly. No human could do this under their own power and no animal would cause this scale of damage while keeping it so neat. So this was caused by some kind of tool, then?

A weapon?

That was a troubling thought, but Link knew that such a thing was possible. Right now, though, he wasn't entirely sure if that was it. They might find out more from the exterior of the ship, or even from the area around it. Despite all the danger that probably lurked here, he felt more curious now than concerned. Wherever this ship had been, or where it had been going to with its passengers, something unusual had happened to it either before or after it wound up in the Ship Graveyard.

Flemeth made her way to the bottom of the ocean floor that was showing through the hole. She only spared briefly glances at the rooms they passed. There were many a passenger room, though there were several other types of rooms themselves. She assumed a ship of that size was likely to need a lot of different things to keep it running smoothly. She didn't even know what kinds of things it might need.

She reached the bottom and considered her shark body. It was not ideal for exploration in this area, where she couldn't fit herself into any nooks and crannies to reach anything. Fins just didn't work that way.

So, Flemeth transformed back into her witch form - though only briefly so one could barely recognize she had fully formed before she turned into the form of an octopus. This was a more ideal one for the need she currently had.

Flemeth flopped onto the ground and started moving forward, letting her long tentacles touch reach out around her in search of anything of interest.

Flemeth was suddenly an octopus; the new form was probably chosen for how useful it would be. The dolphin started scanning the ground, bombarding its surfaces with her clicks. Link swam close to the bottom, looking at everything he came across. While he didn't have the same abilities as his companions, he was good at spotting details. Many of the things he had done back in his homeland had required him to have sharp eyes. Both his success and survival had depended on it.

There wasn't, as far as Link could see, any damage to this part of the ocean floor. That meant that whatever had caused the hole in the ship did so from below it, or it went through from above and didn't reach this far. Swimming along, he found bits and pieces from the wreckage that had found their way down.

Including what appeared to be a large metal support beam. One end still had bolts in it, while the other ended abruptly as it was completely sheared off.

Poking her tentacles into every nook and cranny she could find, Flemeth explored a lot of the ocean floor. She didn't really find anything that was of interest, though. There were a few fish that were disturbed by her movements, but nothing else.

It did, however, look like Link had found something of interest.

Flemeth crawled her way along the floor until she came across the metal support beam that Link had found. She climbed right onto it, using her tentacles to help balance her weight as she shuffled along it. She came to the sheered off edge and used two of her tentacles to feel down around it

The cut was clean in a way that she had rarely seen anything so nicely done. And, there was something else she felt on it that another might not be able to tell.

Magic. Well, magical residue. The essence of magic that was left behind after a strong spell had been worked on something.

Now this was interesting.

As Link examined the support beam, Flemeth came over to check it out herself; he moved out of her way as she prodded at it. Since she was taking her time with it, he could only assume that she must've found something interesting. But he couldn't verbally ask - he couldn't speak underwater, even while wearing this armor.

Whatever caused all this damage, it was pretty powerful. No doubt about that. Otherwise, it wouldn't have sheared everything so cleanly like this. Something about it felt unnatural, but that was as far as Link could get by just looking over the wreckage. While he was thinking it over, however, he realized something.

The wildlife here was starting to either run or hide.

Fish took off, either on their own or in the safety of their schools. Anemones shrunk down, camouflaged into their surroundings. The crabs either hitched rides on larger animals, or they scrambled to find their own hiding spots. Even the clams and oysters were bent on getting out of here, propelling themselves through the water and towards the vast expanse of open ocean.

Hurrying back to her friends, the dolphin swam circles around them, squeaking frantically. There was something approaching the area, and it wasn't safe to be around!
