Genre: drabble
Rating: G

Author's Note: no spoilers.  Written for Challenge #207 (Sink/Swim) at DW100


Thousands of species here. Rose likes the colourful Parrotfish. The Stonefish are so ugly they make her laugh. Ought to show her the Prahav Zoo, where the water-breathers gawked at the humans and other land creatures – until the specimens escaped, and the building was flooded. Nah. Too much danger of crossing the timelines.

Big crowd at the shark tank. Humans love dangerous creatures, s’long as they’re labeled and behind a barrier. Rose reads the sign. “Some sharks can only breathe while in motion. They must swim or die.”

The ocean is a lot like the Vortex, y’know?
