Groggy Morning...

In case anyone missed it when I said so, I decided this quest won't be full nsfw. First thread is a good indication of how I want to keep it for the most part.

Start with introductions! Echo and Shelly, meet Riptide and Rosie. Riptide and Rosie, meet Echo and Shelly.

Then let’s have everyone sit down and talk about our hobbies, favorite foods, tell jokes, etc. We’ve gotta try and get everyone to relax!

>Start with introductions! Echo and Shelly, meet Riptide and Rosie. Riptide and Rosie, meet Echo and Shelly.

Finn: "Hey guys! Good to see you both!"

Riptide: "Uuuh... Oh, yeah Finn... Likewise."

Rosie: "Hi Finn."

Finn: "I'd like you both to meet some new friends here! Echo here is the Angler Fish I mentioned, coming straight from the Deep Dark! He's here to make friends!"

Echo: "I am! Cute friends!"

Riptide: "H-hi Echo. It's bonkers you're up here! Cool though, I mean."

Rosie simply waves with a small nervous smile.

Finn: "And this is Shelly! She is nice and gentle and also wants to make friends! Right?"

Shelly: "Yes!" She looks to the ground while doing a slight bow. "I hope we can be friends. I don't mean to bother or get in the way of anyone!"

There's a pause. Shelly hold her pose for a bit, but then slowly looks up when no one says anything. Once her stare meets with Riptide's and Rosie's again, she has a worried look. But then Riptide's furrowed brow finally relaxes for a similar worried one that Shelly has. He looks to me for a moment then back to Shelly with a friendlier expression.

Riptide: "Oh, huh. No worries! If you're nice than you have nothing to worry about with us!"

There's another pause, but this time, mostly of surprise. Riptide is the only one that seems to be at ease in this moment. Well, him and Echo. Until Shelly breaks a big smile of relief.

Shelly: "Thank you, thank you!"

Ok! Wasn't sure what to expect, but it seems like things might be starting to work out now. Still some to go, but progress is progress! For now, I note that Rosie still seems nervous, but she often is when other are around, and now there's 2 new people, so it would be worth it to check up on her later, preferably away from the others.

Finn: "And Echo, Shelly, this here is Riptide!"

Echo: "Hello!"

Shelly: "Hi!"

Riptide: "Yep, that's me! If Riptide is too long of a name, just call me Rip!"

Finn: "Mmmmh, nah. That's be too weird. And this here and Rosie!"

Shelly: "H-hi!"

Echo: "*gasp!* Rosie! We meet again! You are a big cute! Hello!" Rosie instantly blush at "big cute" but with a hint of discomfort.

Rosie: "Ohh... H-hi Echo, nice to meet you face to face! Sorry if I'm too big..."

Echo tilt his head sideways a bit.

Echo: "Too big?"

Rosie: "F-forget I said anything, I-i'm sorry!"

Echo continues to be confused but decides to move on. Rosie's blushing is becoming less and less subtle

Echo: "Well, I'm glad yo report that you still have a pretty voice!"

Shelly: "You really do have a pretty voice! I've never met anyone as tall and big as you are. Y-you're amazing!"

Rosie is red now. She looks away and tries to cover her face with one of her hands, but she can't hide her smile.

Rosie: "A-amaz-? I-I'm nothing- not amazing, I mean! I- hhhaaahh. You're voice is p-pretty too."

Shelly is a bit taken by surprised by the reaction.

Shelly: "Wh-? Oh, uhh, thank you!"

Rosie: "I'm sorry!"

Shelly: "What? Why? What happened?"

Mango: "Ok, Rosie. I wanna ask you something over here, come on."

Rosie: "ok"

Mango leads Rosie away some feet from the group, makes her kneel to be more at eye level, and start talking to her quietly. That can happen with new people around. But she'll recover.

Shelly: "Did I do something wrong?"

Finn: "Not exactly. Just... try to not mention her size, while also not complimenting her too rapidly."

Shelly: "... She doesn't like that? Huh. I truly am amazed to meet someone of her size though. Never have before. And she's great! And such a gentle voice!"

Echo: "'Cute' count as a compliment, doesn't it? Ahhh..."

Riptide: "It's complicated. Just- trust us on this. Compliment her, but only a little and never about her size."

Shelly: "Ok... I'm guessing she's not a hugger then?"

Finn: "...No?"

Shelly and Echo looks disappointed.

>Let's talk and swim up to the viewpoint. Let's break the ice, yeah? Let's not lay a little too heavily on Shelly. Answer questions on their behalf if you can.

Finn: "Hey, you know that one boat near the Deep Dark? The one with a rock through it? We should go there!"

Riptide: "Yeah, sure!"

Everyone seems to agrees in their own ways and we start making our way to the boat.

While we start moving forward, I feel a tug on my arm and I turn to see it's Riptide, making me lag behind the group a little bit. He talks in a low voice.

Riptide: "Hey, real quick: you sure about this? I don't want to doubt you or anything, but you have to understand how sudden this is."

Finn: "I am and I do. She's a very nice Merfolk. Seems like she did get exposed to lies, but otherwise, she's a nice one."

Riptide: "... Sooo, you're sure that you're not just being controlled by her tits then?"

Finn: "Pff! R-riptide, what the hell dude!"

Riptide: "Just want to make sure! I know how you are with titties! I mean, Rosie's are bigger, but maybe you just want more of em?"

Finn: "Dude! Come on, you really give me this little credits?... I mean yeah titties are nice, but come on!"

Riptide: "Alright, alright." he give me a sly side smile. "But seriously, I just want to make sure, since... well you do seem sure that she's cool. I don't want this to be some sort of trick..."

Finn: "If it is, I'll make sure I'm the one that gets had by the ruse. She legitimately seem nice and she seems bothered by learning of the common lies around her. First time we met, she was surprised, but no anger or judgement was present."

Riptide: "Huh. Well I guess I could see it. There's so many Merfolk, why would they all be bad?... Alright, I'll trust her through you then."

Finn: "And I'm feeling no pressure!"

We pick up the pace to rejoin the group.

Finn: "So, anything up with you since yesterday?"

Riptide: "Well me and Mango hung out, that was kinda nice. But honestly we didn't do anything too out of the ordinary. We walked around town and watched a movie afterward. Then I went home and not done much since. You?"

Finn: "Me and Rosie went to the Deep Dark, which we happened to meet Echo at. He was in the process of climbing up, but had difficulties."

Riptide: "I can imagine... woah."

Finn: "Then we went to the nearby Midway to play some games. Won her a plush Megalodon!"

Riptide: "Dang dude, you guys had a real date. I gotta up my game... Heh! Is that where you met Shelly?"

Finn: "Nah that was after the date."

Riptide: "So what happened then? I just can't imagine you just came across a Merfolk and befriended her casually like this."

I'm still not sure if I should tell him a whole lot, especially since we're rejoining the group. Or I could tell a white lie. Omit some details. Like maybe Ammy is the one that introduced me to her? Riptide doesn't know Ammy enough so it could work for now. And some of that is technically true. I'd have to either come up a reason why or try to change the subject. Maybe I can tell him I'll elaborate later since I don't want to make him feel misguided later... What should I do?

Finn: "It's kind of complicated. Ammy is involved and all that. I'd rather try to explain to everyone not in the loop after everyone is more relaxed around each other."

Riptide: "... Well alright. It'll be hard to stifle my curiosity, but if you say so. Like wow, a merfolk... I wonder how the dudes look like."

I've seen a couple of guard that looked like dudes, but it might be best not to say anything since it would hint at more complicated.

Riptide: "Anyway, we should catch up with them!"

Finn: "Mmh? Oh yeah!"

We pick up the pace to walk with the rest of the group and after some minutes, we arrive at the boat! Things seems pretty quiet. Well... outside at least. Some of us climb up using the added stairs. While others, Shelly included, swims up to where the stairs leads to.

>So there are humans on the surface?

No idea what those are, but the surface has regular surface people. Like dog people, cat people, bird people, reptilian people. Nothing out of the ordinary, I'd think.

>Head to the captain's deck. Maybe there's some left over clothes or a hat you could throw on to get into the mood of things.
>Let’s look around for any cool things that may have been left on the ship when it sunk!

Echo starts to excitably head a different way with Rosie and Mango who chooses to follow him. I quickly tell everyone to meet up in a bit in whatever recreational area the ship might have and Mango confirms they will. Shelly and Riptide sticks with me as we start heading to the captain's deck in search of cool things.

Shelly: "I've heard of these ships, but wow they are big! It's like a floating building! Well, I assume, since this one isn't..."

Riptide: "Oh yeah, I guess we're giving a split tour to you and Echo, huh."

Shelly: "You've been here before?"

Finn: "We both have! Not enough times to know this ship perfectly though. And it's been a little while."

Shelly: "... I barely know anything from outside the palace. And inside now that I think about it..."

With Riptide and Shelly here, I could bring up some topics to talk about to both or ask either of them a specific question.

>Are you sure splitting up the party is a good idea? If magic and all that is real then it stands to reason ghosts are too...

As I look into one of the dark rooms, I wonder about the chances of a ghost looking back... Or is it behind me!? Ah, nah. It's just Shelly and Riptide.

Actually, this might be something to ask Ammy about later, if I really think that's possible. Well, an option, not a requirement. While I definitely do think I can't be sure of everything anymore, getting paranoid over nothing is not something I want to start doing... Or make it an habit. At any rate, I have not heard of anyone encountering ghosts in one of these ships before. So maybe we're safe? At least until the walls starts bleeding.

I wonder if it would be a good idea to bring up ghosts after I tricked Shelly that way...

>Let's get some basic everyday questions out of the way. Like what a mermaid diet is like?

I ask her that!

Shelly: "Various dishes that contains mostly seaweed and sometimes certain types of small meats! We also have exports from the surface."

Finn: "From the surface? Wouldn't it just float all around?"

Shelly: "Yeah, but most rooms have a small box of air, like a smaller room in the ceiling, that also have a table hanging from the ceiling. That way we can eat surface food!"

Finn: "Huh!"

>All the while snooping around some rooms for treasure

I tried to up my snoopage while we walk by rooms, but I'm starting to think people got to get most of their valuables along with them. Whatever scraps that is left must have been ship property, like towels... I think some people might have taken the more valuable ship properties too, wow.

>Dialogue

Finn: "What are the odds that we'll find something really cool around here?"

Shelly: "What are you talking about?! Everything is cool here!"

Riptide: "As for actual objects, I dunno. It's possible others have been here and took the best stuff already."

Shelly: "Oh yeah?! What about that?!?" She quickly moves in front of one of the door to a room and points in, we both peak in and don't notice anything particular.

Riptide: "... Nothing?"

Shelly: "Something could have been there... Though I admit that these repeating rooms are getting kinda old."

Finn: "These ships are pretty big, that's why we're heading to a potentially more interesting spot. Those room are only meant for people to stay onboard comfortably."

Riptide: "Let's move onward then!"

Shelly: "Yes!"

I could probably talk about other things before we get there.

Art output is low lately and the topic that were not used were just cause I was not inspired to come up with world building answers. So for the sake of updating, this is more or less just to talk about other topics.

We do have a common way to communicate, yes.

>ask what shelly knows about the surface.

Shelly: "I'm not really an expert on the matter. I mostly know about how a lot of the palace is themed like surface dwellings. We even have stairs."

Riptide: "In a merfolk building?"

Shelly: "Yep. purely for look."

Finn: "I did see weird things in a closet there."

Shelly: "But yeah. The palace is very surface styled, which includes the food when we can get the ingredients, or when we use sea ingredients and make them look like surface food, though that's mostly done by the more pompous residents of the palace. I'm sure Poseidon often does that since he's the one making everyone do that. But hey, some surface things are kinda cool. Like this boat! I'd know more about the surface, but that's not really a subject I retained much of in studies growing up."

>Ask if she's ever been to the surface herself then? What kind of stuff's up there?

Finn: "Have you ever been to the surface yourself, then?"

Shelly: "N-no... I have not really left the palace much..."

>There are ape-people on the surface, right?

I- Don't know? It rings a bell, I think, but I'm not sure.

Finn: "Shelly, have you heard of Ape-people. All this surface talk made that pop in my head."

Shelly pauses a bit to think on it.

Shelly: "... I think we talked about it in one of my classes growing up. Again, I don't remember everything, but I think it's a myth? Though some theorize it's not? I can't remember. But if I'm thinking of the right thing, there's no ape-people around right now."

Finn: "I guess I must have heard of them."

Riptide: "Wasn't there an episode of Sea Masters about it?"

Finn: "Maybe. I remember almost nothing from that show."

We all shrug simultaneously.

We arrive at the Captain's Deck/Bridge/Helm! Riptide head to one of the windows to look out of them. Shelly stays by my side for now. From here, I'm not seeing much hat. So where should I look? It might be tucked in somewhere. I'd say the most obvious spot would be around the Captain's chair. While I look, I can also ask more to my friends.

>Did any ocean folks put up any sort of plaques in here describing how this ship went down? Tourist attraction and all.

This ship didn't get taken over like the others. It was just made safer once they realized people were going there anyway.

>Looks like you could open the bottom part of that console on the left.
>Any closets or lockers along the wall?

I look along the wall and I'm not really noticing any opening within the pattern. Shelly sticks close.

Shelly: "What are you looking for?"

Finn: "Uhh, just a sec..."

I then look around the consoles to see if anything opens, It does look like the panel could be removed, but only if I had the proper screwdriver. I'm guessing it's only to get into the inner working of this machine.

I head to the central chair which I assume would be the captain's chair. Shelly follows. I sit down in it to get a better sense of what I can see from that perspective. I'm not immediately sure where I could find a hat, but I currently am hat-less. I sigh in defeat.

Shelly: "Why are you so down?! You're the captain!"

Finn: "It's not that great, I have to go down with the ship!"

Shelly: "And you can't drown!"

Finn: "Fair point. Really though, I was hoping to find a captain hat."

Shelly: "... Oh I think I remember something. If you stick your hand over there, can you find a lever?"

She points within the chair to the side of the seat. I feel around and find a hidden lever.

Shelly: "Pull that, and hold it, then spin the chair around 3 times!"

I look at her with a raised eye brown. Is she messing with me?

Finn: "Are we in a video game?"

Shelly: "Just do it!"

I pull the lever and slowly start to rotate the chair waiting on Shelly to laugh and call me an idiot. But seeing that I'm going slow, she moves close in front of me, holds both arm rests and start using her tail to swim us around in a circle. After the third rotation, a loud click is heard. She keeps the chair spinning just enough so that I face the back wall, which opens up a secret compartment within the patterns. Inside, 5 Captain Hats hangs neatly in a row.

Shelly: "Tadaaaa! Emergency hat replacements!"

Riptide: "Woah, what did you guys do?"

Finn: "Shelly found a secret hat stash!"

Shelly: "That's one of the goofier things we learned that I remembered I guess."

She gives us a pleasant smile.
