June 5th, 2005, 11:19 AM
...Check the closed one for details.... Geez, what's wrong with me? I should know that no one's going to join this, especially now that Flygon Trainer's gone. That's the problem with me. I live on false hope....
Description: A dolphin, with five star-like markings on his forehead.
And again, what's wrong with me?
June 6th, 2005, 6:13 PM
Well don't have false hope! I'm joining!
Description: A dolphin, she is all white
June 10th, 2005, 8:43 PM
Oh thank you! *is very happy*

Hun, I've always loved Dolphins, and Ecco is my fave
June 11th, 2005, 9:56 AM
I love dolphins too! :) They're some of my favorite animals! BTW, is Ecco a male or a female? I always thought Ecco was male, though I'm not really sure why...
June 13th, 2005, 7:01 AM
Ecco is a male I believe....heck....I bet ur two dolphins would like eachother! ^__^
June 13th, 2005, 3:12 PM
OOC:^___^ Hee hee! Okay, I think we can start...now!
IC: Ecco rode the bow wave of the ship, giddy from the overwhelming sense of joy it gave him. The sun was setting, seeming to set the ocean's surface on fire. It had been a beautiful day, so beautiful that no one could suspect the dark event it foreshadowed.
Ecco dove down underneath the belly of the ship. A "schooner", as the humans called it. 'Why do they make up those strange terms?' thought Ecco. 'It just complicates things.'
But Ecco didn't dwell on the strangeness of humans for long. Instead, he focused on his next move. Putting all his speed into it, he zoomed upward, breaking through to the surface. For a split second he could sense the border between sea and sky. Then that moment was gone, and he was up, up in the air, in a magnificent flip that made him feel weightless, graceful. Free.
He turned his body completely over in the air, which was difficult with air pressure pushing down on him. But he did it, and landed back in the sea in an incredible ending to his performance.
"Well, that was fun!" said Ecco with a grin. "Anyone up for another round?"
June 13th, 2005, 3:14 PM
OOC: I could start, it's no prob at all.
June 13th, 2005, 7:35 PM
It's okay, I can start it. But thanks for your offer.
June 14th, 2005, 9:50 AM
"Ecco..." A beautiful white dolphin swam towards him, a look of either amusement or...well anyway. Lieak seemed amused wih his stunts, and she really enjoyed being around him. "It is getting late..."
OOC: It's short, but I'm trying!
June 14th, 2005, 4:25 PM
OOC: Short is fine.
IC: Ecco turned to the dolphin, momentarily stunned. She was very beautiful....
"Erm...h-hi," he stuttered. "What's your name?"
June 14th, 2005, 6:09 PM
"My name is Lieak..." She swam a circle around him, giggling. "I know you're Ecco, because of the stars upon your head...."
June 14th, 2005, 8:27 PM
"Oh. Yeah, maybe it is getting late..." he said, "...but not too late for a race!" Laughing, he shot, torpedolike, into the sky.
June 15th, 2005, 8:08 PM
"That is very cute Ecco...but I am not into racing now..." I spotted some fish, zooming over to them, the little buggers got away. "I am too slow....."
June 16th, 2005, 5:34 PM
"You're not too slow!" Ecco zipped into the school of fish, did an underwater backflip, and grabbed one in his mouth. "But you don't have to race if you don't feel like it right now," he said, bringing Lieak the fish. "I don't really feel like it either."
June 16th, 2005, 5:37 PM
She nodded, taking the fish. "Thank you....I'm just not a fast swimmer....plus...it's easier for fish to see me...."
June 16th, 2005, 6:03 PM
"Well, maybe we could work around that. I could teach you some...uh...tactics." He smiled at her, somewhat goofily. He had never felt this way about anyone else before. Could it be....
Suddenly, Ecco noticed something shiny, in deeper water. It was glowing a light silver, almost unnaturally. Something about it attracted his attention. Almost mechanically, he began to dive towards it...
June 16th, 2005, 6:04 PM
She gulped down the fish and followed close behind.
OOC: Gotta go, bye!
June 16th, 2005, 6:08 PM
OOC: Okay, bye! Hope you can come back soon!
IC: Ecco reached the strange object. He still could not tell what it was. It didn't seem to have a definite shape. Without thinking, he swam closer...
OOC: Don't really know what it is yet. I'll make it up as I go.
June 16th, 2005, 6:18 PM
"What is it...." She rolled to one side for a better look at the object.
June 16th, 2005, 6:24 PM
He squinted from the bright light the thing emitted. "I'm not sure...." Instinctively, he reached out and touched it with the tip of his fin.
"Ow!" he cried, recoiling. He examined his fin. The tip was burnt black. "Whatever it is, I don't like it," he said, returning his gaze to the odd silver object.
June 16th, 2005, 6:37 PM
She swam towards the object, touching it with a fin. She quickly recoiled and swam in cirlces, pain coursing through her body.
June 17th, 2005, 2:18 PM
Ecco watched Lieak swim in circles, feeling more angry than he ever had before. "It hurt you too? Now I KNOW I don't like it!" He swam to her. "Will you be alright?" he asked in a softer tone, staring into her eyes with a concerned look on his face.
June 17th, 2005, 2:26 PM
OOC: I'm really upset because my idol was stolen by that Team Magma Girl. I had claimed him first...
"I'll be fine..." I said, looking at Ecco. "Thanks for caring...I rubbed my head against his side as a sign of thanks.
June 17th, 2005, 2:35 PM
He smiled at her. "I'm glad you're okay. Now we just need to figure out what that thing is," he said.
Ecco examined the object more closely. And suddenly, he felt that something evil was nearby...
"Lieak, I think we should..." But before he could finish, a low rumbling noise interrupted him. "That doesn't sound good," said Ecco. "That does not sound good."
OOC: That sucks. *throws something at Team Magma Girl*
June 17th, 2005, 2:39 PM
"Ecco....what's going on....I've felt this kind of runbling before...but something isn't right...." She stayed close to him, afraid.
June 17th, 2005, 2:42 PM
"Don't be afraid," said Ecco softly, leaving out the fact that he was afraid too. Why make it worse?
The rumbling grew steadily louder...
June 17th, 2005, 2:51 PM
"What if it's something that's going to harm us....." She quickly surfaced faced air, zooming back to Ecco's side.
June 17th, 2005, 3:02 PM
"If it is...." His voice trailed off. He didn't want to think about what the noise could mean.
Suddenly, the rumbling stopped, and the ocean was eerily silent. Too silent...
June 17th, 2005, 3:09 PM
"Where did the noise go...Ecco...I'm scared...."She looked around, mortaly afraid now.
June 17th, 2005, 3:29 PM
"It's okay, Lieak. It's okay," said Ecco, holding her tightly. He 'listened' to the silence for a while, straining to hear something. But nothing came. "The prophecy...." he murmured, without any idea of where the words had come from. And then, it happened....
The ocean around the two dolphins and the strange object turned black, black as the night. The sky above turned blood-red, as if blood had been spilt in it.
Noise came back. But not just any noise. It was like an explosion, booming, giving Ecco a terrible migraine.
At the same time it was like the scream of a horrible monster, bellowing in evil glee after being freed from a cage.
And then it was something else, something that was more terrible than both of the sounds before it. In the background of the noise, Ecco could hear faint murmuring of garbled words he could not understand, like a foreign language to him. He did not understand them, but he still knew they were dark, evil words. Words that no one, absolutely no one, should ever have had to hear.
"Allas es teno zhe rebra jen tulio sevas seste seloenas...." whispered the murmuring voice, which sounded hollow and inhuman. It repeated the last word with even more menace in its tone. "SELOENAS!"
And for a moment Ecco could glimpse the speaker clearly in his mind. This was too much. The speaker's image dripped in darkness, choking Ecco, choking him. He screamed loudly, then fainted, too exhausted to take anymore.
OOC:Have to go. Bye!
June 17th, 2005, 8:12 PM
"Ecco....ECCO!" She became scared, nudging him. "Ecco wake up! ECCO!!!!!"
June 22nd, 2005, 7:05 AM
"Wha...what?" Ecco slowly awoke. He looked around, but the sky and the sea had returned to their normal colors. And the regular noises were back.
"What....happened?" asked Ecco, taking a deep breath in between words. He was finding it difficult to talk. "Did....you...see it?" He looked in the direction of the object. Perhaps it would give them a clue. But the object was gone.
"You....didn't have to see it, did you? Please...tell....me you didn't have to see it," said Ecco, looking at her wearily. He hoped she hadn't. He didn't want her to have had to experience that terrible vision too.
June 22nd, 2005, 11:23 AM
I shook my head slightly. "I...I saw nothing...."
July 2nd, 2005, 10:18 AM
"Oh...good," said Ecco, relieved. "What...was that?" He was talking more to himself than to her.
