The ship cut through the sea like silk, waters parting on either side in long, frothing tails. The weather was agreeable that day—certainly chill, as the arctic seas always were, with just enough wind to fill the sails but not enough to stir the ocean up. Captain Holden declared for the third time that afternoon, "Beautiful weather! Absolutely perfect!" Though the BanchoLeomon stood alone on the bow, the wind carried his exultation in snippets back to the main deck. Captain Holden didn't know much about these humans who had practically infested File Island, but he'd heard enough rumors about their abilities. Glowing crests, spontaneously evolving Digimon... they made the perfect cannon fodder! Or sea monster chum, as it was. Whether File Island had always been bordered by dense walls of fog was debatable, but certainly no one had tried to broach them in quite some time. Such attempts had always resulted in death or, for those lucky few who floated back into safer waters, half-remembered trauma. Survivors told of a depthless sea broiling with monsters—and not just the various types of Seadramon that hunted in safer (though not safe) waters. But today was different! Today Captain Holden had a crew of rugged veterans, perfect weather, a beast of a ship, and a motley crew of humans and their partners. If their funky crests didn't affect the fog, then their spontaneously evolving partners would at least keep any beasties at bay. (Or so Captain Holder believed.) Wisps of fog floated past the ship as it nosed into the very edge of FIle Island's navigable seas. let's fite some sea monsters No turn order Potential content warnings for claustrophobia, general violence, drowning, and sea monsters This is a loose, informal thread—play NPCs, throw in plot twists, and guide the thread as you see fit!
