Hello, all! This is an RP about ocean animal shifters! Comment if you want to join.
You are within a group of friends that went swimming in the Pacific ocean one day. Suddenly, you all hear a small SPLOOSH about 5 meters away. When you swim toward it, you see that it's a hollow rock that fell from the sky. One of you calls out: "It's a meteorite!" Suddenly, the meteorite turns into a ball of light that expands to that five-meter radius and engulfs all of you, but no one else. Some Earthian sea creature's DNA was fused with yours. You now have 2 or 3 characteristics of that creature, and the ability to shift completely into and out of its form, all being able to still communicate through what you decide to call 'mind speak' but not being able to do it while in your human form. (However, you can still hear it in that form.) You all decide to cover up your new identities whenever possible, but frequently visit an ocean cliff, even in winter, to jump off and shift mid-air, able to hit the water with no pain where it's deep enough for your creature.
This roleplay begins on the night of the meteorite.
