Makio Ryu stretches out a little at his spot sitting near one of the sea parks various decrative fish tanks. Mmmm...fish...no, no...control Makio, you can't eat THOSE fish. Besides, you LOVE those fish! ...er...anyway- Let's try this again.

Makio is currently taking a quick break on one of the benches. He's been practicing something behind the scenes for one of the rare times he actually gets to lead a sea park event, but there's only so much that can be done at one time before it starts getting too taxing on someone involved. He deffinetly doesn't want to tire out all those little penguins who'll be following his commands soon. It does seem like a good day out today though. It's great weather for being outside heavily since it isn't too hot or TOO cold. The sky is clear too, so Makio can't complain at all right now.

Lamya is standing in the middle of one of the crossroads that lead to various exhibits, with one of the cartoonishly bright maps in her hands. She scowls at it, turns it upside down, decides that, no, she had it right the first time and turns it rightside up again. With a sigh and a shake of her head she mutters, "I don't recognize any of these animals."

Makio Ryu blinks a little as he hears those words spoken and- he also can't help being mahou and noticing those out of place features most people'd gloss over. Not only are there THOSE things, but the fact she looks like a lone 12 year old. As such he invites himself to get up and approach. "Don't recognise," he wonders, "Did you get here by mistake or something? Do you want a guide?"

Lamya looks up at the Mew and shakes her head. "No, I am here quite on purpose. It was suggested to me that, since I am a water dragon, I should come visit this place." She shakes her head, and holds out the map. "This is supposed to showcase animals from the sea, but I am not familiar with any of them." She pulls the map back and squints at it. "What is a .... Penngoo?"
Makio Ryu 2017-11-22 07:50:07 87001
Makio Ryu ahhhs in understanding, despite the fact no normal human should do that...then again he's not exactly normal. "The penguins," he replies, "Are black and white birds that look like they are wearing tuxedos, and they slide around on ice and swim in the water instead of flying. They usually live in places like the artic."
Dragon Lamya 2017-11-22 07:56:22 87002
"Pengooins," Lamya says, mulling the sound of the word around in her mouth. "And you said that they swim instead of fly?" One can almost see Lamya's imagination of a fish, with a bird's head and beak wearing a tuxedo. "This sounds like a most absurd animal."
Makio Ryu 2017-11-22 07:58:12 87003
"It /is/ unique," Makio agrees, "It stands upright and waddles around on it's feet too, when it's not sliding around or swimming. They can't actually fly at all."
Dragon Lamya 2017-11-22 08:00:12 87004
Lamya's head picture doesn't change much other than huge hobbit feet popping into the creature and it waddling around, nearly toppling over. She starts to giggle at the mental image. "I am sorry, but I think you are having fun at my expense and just making this up." She doesn't sound angry, though. More amused than anything else.
Makio Ryu 2017-11-22 08:01:04 87005
Makio Ryu shakes his head. "I can show you to them, if you want," he states, "They should be on feeding time right now..."
Dragon Lamya 2017-11-22 08:04:13 87006
"Sure," agrees the dragon. "Let us see this pengooin of yours." Lamya just chuckles to herself as she lets the boy lead her on.
Makio Ryu 2017-11-22 08:09:23 87007
Makio Ryu would lead Lamya close to the back of the park, heading for a large domed building that looks like it's made of some form of white blocks. Going into said building, it is actually pretty chilly inside. However, once two sets of doors are passed, the afforementioned penguins are well within view, excitedly accepting the fish they are currently being fed by other customers.

Maiko isn't joining in on the feeding or offering to let her do it because that right there would be a nightmareish amount of effort required to keep himself in control.
Dragon Lamya 2017-11-22 08:13:45 87008
Lamya presses up against the glass, peering at the odd little creatures. "This was not what I had imagined," she states. "But it does fit your description quite well."
Makio Ryu 2017-11-22 08:17:04 87010
The penguins are mostly jumping about for fish, but some are swimming with their food. Others are just kind of chilled out on the fake snow and ice. "They can do all kinds of tricks, but they're on break for now," Makio explains, "Did anything else catch your attention?"
Dragon Lamya 2017-11-23 03:54:14 87051
"Tricks?" asks Lamya, her head tilting in curiosity. "How do you mean?"
Makio Ryu 2017-11-23 04:03:54 87052
"Oh all kinds of things," Makio answers, "They can jump for things, they can dance, they can wear costumes and 'act', all kinds of things." He grins and tilts his head a little. "Have you really not heard of ANY of the animals here? ...I mean, most of these are really commonly known animals."
Dragon Lamya 2017-11-23 04:09:10 87053
Lamya scowls at Makio. "That seems cruel, to make them beg and perform for their food." She turns back to the enclosure, scowling even more. "Moreso to cage them." At the boy's question she looks down at the brochure. "Well," she admits. "If there is a picture I recognize it, but the names are strange."
Makio Ryu 2017-11-23 04:10:48 87054
Makio Ryu tilts his head some. "Umm we don't make them perform for most thier food, they perform for extras. And we are keeping them safe...not just that but they have VERY large enclosures and are never worked too hard...you're thinking of that OTHER park."
Dragon Lamya 2017-11-23 04:12:19 87055
Lamya's red eyes narrow and seem to glow with otherworldly power. "Other park?"
Makio Ryu 2017-11-23 04:16:10 87056
Makio Ryu nods in reply. "Sea Land, or whatever it's called? That world wide chain that keeps abusing it's animals. My dad's a partial owner in this...I wouldn't let him hear the last of it if the people here were doing bad things to the animals."
Dragon Lamya 2017-11-23 04:25:49 87057
Lamya clutches a fist in determination. "I will have to find this Sea Land, then, and I will free its denizens from a lifetime of servitude!" The smell of fish, however starts to make her feel hungry. "But first! We feast!" She marches her way out of the exhibit towards the food court.
Makio Ryu 2017-11-23 04:31:25 87058
Makio Ryu follows after Lamya. "Yeaaaah, I need some fish too," he murmurs in reply, "Umm, hey, actually, aren't you that girl that made that super creepy pumpkin. Nice to see you again....I can take care of the cost of the food for you."
