I am a shark, just hanging out underwater. What is my name and what should I do?

Could get nsfw, or maybe not. We'll see...

Hmm. I thought they didn't have sharks down here. Guess that poster proves otherwise!

Check the west door first. And then east. Seems there's also a door to the north behind the cages?

>Hmm. I thought they didn't have sharks down here. Guess that poster proves otherwise!

Well, the reason I'm here is to figure out if the Merfolk are really taking our fins for Shark Fin Soup. This area being behind a locked door, I assume it's off limit to most people. Including Merfolk that are not part of the personnel.

>look past the west door to see what you see
>Yeah.
>Check the west door first.
>Take a peep through the west door.

I try to move the flaps and forget my hands go through. I, uhh... look through instead... I see a big door. Like a garage door? Maybe it somehow connects to the outside. I also see a box with the top part open, but I can't see what is inside from here. Some lockers... Not much else.

It just looks like cuts and stuff. This table have seen some use.

Shark Handling Instructions -Don't trust Sharks: Some might act like they are afraid and vulnerable. This is a ruse they developed to trick weak-minded Merfolk. -Muzzle the shark: Sharks are vicious and will rip and tear your throat out. They only lust for blood. -Shark Disposal: Once the shark's fin have been properly processed, the shark itself becomes completely useless. Place the shark in the chute compartment - by force if necessary - close the door and flip the switch to activate it. Wait for the green light to light up and press the button. The shark will be humanely disposed of. -Merfolk are not Barbaric: We do not stoop to the level of those beasts. The chute will give them another life. It's the least we can do for their pitiful existence. It's our right to be above them, but we are still merciful. -Deliver the Fins to the Kitchen: Once a box is filled, close it and send it to the kitchen. Then process the next subjects.

I go through the door to the east. A Merfolk guard is tapping away at a waterproof phone. He seems to be positioned in such a way that he'd expect people to come from the other side and has not noticed me yet.

Ammy: "......-+@&fffffFFFFFFFIIIiiiIIInnnEEEEeeee!!*-_......"

What?! Ammy's voice sounded really messed up there! I try whispering to her.

Uh oh! I think that means you've entered an area that blocks her from talking to you! Try going back to where you were earlier!

Oh, and as for why they're doing this? Whoever's in charge of the Merfolk must really like shark fin soup and has been lying to the people collecting fins. War might not be necessary, all that needs to be done is reveal the truth to the merfolk. Though, depending on how difficult it is to organize a diplomatic mission that won't just be slaughtered by their army before it reaches the public, war might be needed to simply get into a position where we can talk to their people.

Move carefully not to be spotted and take a close look at the thingy attached to the guard's belt. It might have some important info written on it, or perhaps it's an ID, which would tell us exactly who these guys work for.

I sneak closer to the guard and look at his card. Looks to be some kind of security card with a magnetic strip. From this side, I can't read the tiny texts.

I sneak back to the other room. Once I'm there I try Ammy again.

Finnelope: "Ammy...?"

She doesn't say a word nor make a sound. I move closer to the center of the room when I hear sounds coming from the south door.

*Click* *KrrrrrRRrrr* *Beep Beep Boop*

Uhhh! I think someone is unlocking the complicated door!

>Go down the chute! You're incorporeal, you must see this 'new life' they speak of!
>Go back and check out the chute. You may be able to get outside that way.

I move over to the chute! I try the handle at the bottom of the door but I just go through. I press my hands on the center of the door as hard as I can. Like the complicated door, I slowly sink into it!

After a bit of struggling, I am now within a small compartment. Seems like there's another door on the opposite side from the door I just went through. This one does not seem to have any kind of handles. I think I could go through this one too.

Finnelope: "Ammy, can you hear me?"

Nothing.

I start hearing sounds from the previous room. They are voices! But it's all too muffled for me to make anything out...

As long as she called me a badass, I'll forgive her.

>The chute is a meat grinder. You know that, right?

I don't know it, but I'm definitely paranoid about it. That handle spooked me! Even though I tried to use it to open the hatch...

>well unless you find a way to hear what they're saying in the other room...
>Sink your head into the side of the compartment until your ear is close enough to the open air for you to hear them.

You mean open water? Wait... Mmmh.

I push my head against the door to try and get my ear through. I stop pushing once I start hearing the previous room clearly... Seems like they stopped talking, but I can still hear distant sounds. I think they are in another room. Maybe over the flaps with the big door. I now hear some kind of water-proof electric motor sound. Might be said door opening...

Should I go back into the previous room, go forward into the unknown or wait a bit more?

I'm still scared that this chute leads to a grinder and will mentally hurt me so I decide to push my head in further to see if the coast is clear. From this angle, it seems like it is. I push all the way and I am now in the previous room again. I sneak over to the end of the cages and look toward the door flaps and see a Merfolk bringing a box in from the big door. From here, I think that the Merfolk will not be able to spot my ghosty self. So I sneak over the complicated door. I put both of my hands on the door and prepare to push.

This has been addressed in the disthread, but I think I have to say it here since it's easy for things to get lost in disthreads.

Shark Quest is not a lewd quest.

I know the spoiler text in the first post said it could get lewd, but it came from genuine uncertainties about how I wanted the quest to be. But since, I figured I'd rather not put lewd scenes in Shark Quest.

The spoiler text, alongside the skimpy outfits, probably misled some of you. So I'm sorry about that. But while the outfits will remain, they will generally always cover character's bits. Porn and full nudity can happen outside of the quest if I feel like it.

I think she said something about how she has to do it? Had she gone alone, she would have only been able to leave automatically after a predetermined amount of time. Maybe she doesn't know that I'm in danger?!

I turn quickly and put my back on the door. And start leaning into it. I try to be sublte about it, but I don't think I'm doing a whole lot of progress.

Finnelope: "What you guys are doing here is fucked up!"

She starts slowly making her way towards me.

Female Merfolk Mage: "After all you've done to us?! You sharks are hypocrites."

Finnelope: "What? We didn't do anything! They are lying to you! What is going on here is-"

Female Merfolk Mage: "You're the liar!"

She starts raising her staff.

Suddenly, I feel an extremely sharp pain in my foot. A pain I never felt before. I have never been stabbed, but it hurts more than what I thought getting stabbed would feel it.

I approach Ammy.

Finnelope: "Ammy, it's fine. I'm fine."

She doesn't seem to react much, so I try hugging her. She's so short. This must be how Rosie feels when I hug her?

Ammy: "What are you-?"

She cuts her phrase short as she understand what I'm doing and slowly hugs back.

Ammy: "*sigh* I was suppose to keep you out of danger."

Finnelope: "... We both knew things could go weird. And I did come out of it fine since you saved me. Thank you! Though I wouldn't mind it if you checked my foot in case that mage did something."

She breaks the hug and looks at my feet.

Ammy: "A mage?! They got your foot? How?"

Finnelope: "I'm not sure, I was half way through a door. But it hurt a lot when it happened. That one."

She looks at it and feels it a bit.

Ammy: "... If you felt pain, then they used the red crystal I told you about. You're here now so you should be fine. Unless they did something I am not aware of..."

Finnelope: "... Loooow chances? I hope?"

Ammy: "Yes. That projection was technically not you and doesn't exist anymore."

Finnelope: "Ah, good to know." Farewell, Ghost Finn. "... Well my projection found out that the Merfolk are de-finning live sharks!"

Ammy: "*gasp* So it is them!... Those disappearing sharks... Did- did you see them?"

Finnelope: "They... dispose of them. I suspect the worst."

Ammy: "... Confound those merfolk."

Finnelope: "... Yeahhh. The mage I saw seems to think that we're at fault here. The place also had propaganda about how we're cold blooded killers."

Ammy: "They do? Mmmh."

>What if it's not lies?

They have to be lies. I might only be a young adult, but I never seen a vicious shark before. And I'm a shark! The only ones I ever heard about were only around millions of years ago! We're not like that!

Finnelope: "... We're not like that, are we?"

Ammy: "... If there are a group of cold blooded killer sharks, they are somehow more secretive about their dealing than Merfolks are. I never heard of such things. And the case of shark violence are pretty self contained, like all sentient beings. Sharks are even less violent than H... Well, best not to talk about it."

Finnelope: "What?"

Ammy: "I won't answer anything on the matter since it's not relevant to what is going on right now. My point is that there are more violent beings out there than sharks."

Finnelope: "Merfolks for one."

Ammy: "Yes... Apparently."

>And then ask her if something happened to her because you lost contact with her!

Finnelope: "So, what happened when we lost connection? Did something happened to you?"

Ammy: "No, nothing to me. I think they must have protected the area you went to. Must be the same thing that blocks my scry spells. It's meant to block the type of communications that would come from a scry or how I spoke to you. But you were already within the projection or yourself so you couldn't get cut off. The block worked similar to a large umbrella and you snuck under."

Finnelope: "Ah. Well as long as you were safe."

Ammy: "At any rate, I should be able to handle things from here. Thank you for the help Finn..."

She starts putting things away.

And if the merfolk hear about a shark swimming around and shouting out in public to everyone about this, that'll only make Finn a target!

>Not without proof
You've got more than enough of a story to be probable cause for formal investigation. Go to the police or some other government officials, ask to speak privately, describe what you saw (in terms of the facility's layout and signage, not the specific incident with the merfolk mage) as objectively as possible. All the authorities would need to do to confirm is go and see for themselves, or even just persuade a neutral third party to interview other merfolk who work in the processing facility.

If the cops want to know how you know, don't explain about the magic. Just claim you were flirting with one of the merfolk, subject of food or jobs or something came up, and they described the place to you, thinking it was normal. This story is mostly true, and there are half a dozen witnesses available to support the idea that you've been exploring other cultures and/or unconventional romance lately, including one friendly merfolk whose name you know and who'd recognize your face.

Narratively, the authorities will probably be useless, but that's no excuse not to try.

Guess what time it is! Time for horrible thoughts!

Do you know where your food comes from? Have you ever been inside a meat factory? Know anyone that works at one?
what if it's made of merfolk

Also if they're keeping de-finned sharks as slaves it might not turn out so bad for everyone in the end. They could be rescued! The merfolk had a guard stationed at one of the doors connected to the de-finning operation, so it's quite possible.

Finnelope: "You need any help putting things away?"

Ammy: "No it's fine. I know where everything goes."

She starts gathering the crystals on the table.

Finnelope: "Ok... What about the Merfolk stuff. I can still help right?"

Ammy: "... You might not... No, I think I can handle the rest."

Finnelope: "You can? What are you gonna do next?"

Ammy: "I'm not sure. I need some time to think."

Finnelope: "... Then how do you know you won't need my help?"

She stops herself in her motion as she's gathering crystals to focus completely on saying this to me.

Ammy: "Finn... Things were more dangerous than I thought today when I thought they were going to be safe. Say that you are fine all you want, it won't change that fact. Whatever I do next, it will be more dangerous and I would rather if I don't put you in that kind of danger."

What they are doing isn't just propaganda and murder. It's an atrocity, and appropriate cause for a Shark state to go to war! Surely you or I don't have to handle this kind of thing alone, right?

Finnelope: "Who are you gonna put in danger then?"

Ammy: "... You do not have to worry about that."

Finnelope: "Yes I do. This concerns all sharks! We're all in danger! And I'm not gonna sit idly by while all this happens! We should go to war!"

Ammy: "NO! Anything but that! A war would just make things worse!"

Finnelope: "Yeah, you're right, but still. I'm gonna do something wether you want me to or not, so we should at least work together."

Ammy: "... *sigh* Alright. If I cannot stop you... I still need to make some preparations but... I think Poseidon is at fault here and he's the one we should focus on now. But this is just an intuition based on current evidence and his disposition... I'll need to formulate some plan of action. You can go for today and I'll ping you again tomorrow."

>But what I don’t understand is why certain merfolk seemed to think that sharks are the awful ones. So there is something else afoot here.

Finnelope: "I do wonder why merfolks seems to think we're the awful ones here. Part of me assumes it's just propaganda, but..."

She thinks for a moment.

Ammy: "It's possible... but I don't know the details. It's another mystery to solve as we try to fix things."

Anything else I want to talk to her about before I go home? It's getting late.

Finn: "I'll be going now" I give her another hug "But be careful. You're my friend too and I do worry about you."

Ammy: "Thank you Finn. Be on your guard out there. We don't know how the Merfolk... finds sharks..."

I stop hugging her and vaguely start heading towards the door.

Finn: "Actually another thing I do wonder, I hear the sea serpents are also in danger from the Merfolk. Maybe they know things that could help us?"

Ammy: "Mmmh... Perhaps... I could try to communicate with someone I know. A Sea Serpent magic user. But we're not on good terms. Truthfully, I don't know if they are in good term with anyone. They are quite unpleasant..."

Finn: "Alright... hopefully they can offer help of some kind. See you tomorrow, Ammy."

Ammy: "Yes. It will be difficult, but try to rest. We'll need to be alert. I'll contact you on your phone tomorrow once I have any news. Goodbye."

>Go home.

I step out of Ammy's hut and check my phone. It is getting a bit late, but not too late.

I could do a number of things now or later.

I could go buy some sunglasses... wasn't I suppose to ask Ammy about something about water pressure? At any rate, I think I might have a pair of sunglasses at home, but I'm not sure where they are. I can either buy a new pair to make it quick or search my home and see if I can find them.

I can also try and contact some sort of authority. Shark cops? Though I'm not sure what I could tell them to make them believe me. I'd have to come up with something before I go there.

Both of these could be done either on my way home or tomorrow. Though doing them now might shorten my rest. I should be good doing one before I go home. Or I can keep both for tomorrow and add it to the list of things I need to do.

Things I can remember to do for tomorrow.
-Contact either Riptide or Mango to hang out? Might feel weird now... I should also think about what I should tell them, if I should tell them about what I know now.
-Get Echo out of the Deep Dark to converse face to face.
-Wait for Ammy's call/text to see what is next.

I don't know. Wouldn't they be secret? Maybe I can find something on the Internet, but I wouldn't expect much accurate information on there about them.

>get glasses to get that out of the way so we don't forget about it later through all the day to day thing.

I swing by a store on my way home to get a pair of sunglasses. A slight detour. Once home I get ready for bed.

As I lay down, I ruminate on the day I just had. Finding out that all my friends wanted to date me. That's odd. Though Rosie is nice. Meeting a denizen of the Deep Dark, even if I have not seen them face to face. Wonder what they look like. Ammy asking me for help to investigate the Merfolk palace. What I found...
