    Hatchling...

    Hello there.


    And welcome, to HATCHLING.



    Click here for the wonderful Mirror!



    You are a speckled blue EGG. You have a fear of POTENTIAL ENERGY, and therefore dislike HEIGHTS and GRAVITY. However, because you are nearly ready to HATCH, you have discovered you can ROLL, and enjoy doing so.

    Although you cannot see it at this time, you know that you just FELL from a GREAT HEIGHT, before ROLLING to where you now are.

    What will you do?

    Roll further in the direction you just rolled, assuming a 2d world.

    You have been attempting to ROLL in the direction you were going, but every time you do, you seem to go up just a bit before rolling back down to your position. The rolling is okay, but you really don't like the feeling of going UPHILL or anything.[/b]

    Instead, you get this brilliant idea! Why not, you know, actually try hatching! You manage to scratch out the SHELL in front of your eyes. Ow, it's kind of BRIGHT out here.[/b]

    Roll a bit away from the hill, and work on widening the hole.

    Hope that you are either a peregrine falcon or some sort of awesome flying dinosaur. You don't think you could live with yourself if you turned out to be something lame like a platypus.

    You ROLL right onto your face. Ow. That didn't seem to work. You try to break the SHELL open more, but it doesn't seem to help you get out of the SHELL. It's also extremely tiring. What is this SHELL made of?[/b]

    Well, whatever its made of, you seem to have sharper... talons? Claws? You don't exactly know. You push yourself up again, making the crack in the SHELL larger. You can have your front LIMBS out of the SHELL now, but the rest of your body seems STUCK.[/b]

    What's a Peregrine Falcon? Or a Dinosaur? Or a PLATYPUS? Well, whatever. Platypus sounds the coolest out of the three. You don't know when cool became lame. At any rate, you are pretty sure you aren't any of those things; you decide that you are just YOU. Though, maybe it would be good to have a NAME for yourself.[/b]

    Maybe just sticking to You would be a good idea. For a moment, you think of the possible PROBLEMS this would cause...

    Oh, who really cares what your name is? It's not like anyone is around to call you by your name! There are more pressing matters to attend to... Like, escaping the SHELL.[/b]

    You pull your LIMBS back into the shell and try to push against the SHELL in an attempt to break free. This gets you no where due to the fact that the SHELL is very strong. You're getting quite tired by now from all this effort.[/b]

    Re: Hatching...

    Make nice little cracks in the shell with your talons

    and call yourself Balthisar

    Re: Hatching...

    Try eating your eggshell.

    Some animals do that, right? I'm positive some do...

    ...also, the platypus is an awesome animal. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

    RESTING sounds like a great idea... You'll just close your eyes... and fall ASLEEP...[/b]


    When you wake up, it is NIGHT-TIME. Luckily, your EYES can still absorb enough light to SEE...[/b]

    Time to get out of this SHELL! You thrust your TALONS/CLAWS to the top (or is it the side?) of the SHELL and crack it open more! PIECES OF SHELL go flying.[/b]

    You crawl out of the large hole. Sort of. It appears that you are a SCALED BLUE thing of some sort. If you had any knowledge of BIRDS (which you don't) you would know that you were probably related to a BLUE JAY of some sort. Except... Lizard-y.[/b]

    This image of avatar excellence was brought to you by MrPeach32, with greeny bits by ashdenej. Pretty much the only part I did was this signature.

    Oh yeah. You have WINGS. Unfortunately, they are too small to achieve FLIGHT yet. Although, considering your FEAR of GRAVITY and HEIGHTS, you doubt you want to fly anytime soon.[/b]

    You look around. It seems like there are MOUNTAINS, a LARGE HILL, and a SMALL BUMP. There's nothing important behind you. Seems like there's not much to eat around here either...[/b]

    You eat more of your old SHELL.[/b]

    After consuming your SHELL, you head off in search for your FAMILY. You hate climbing up the LARGE HILL, as this increases your POTENTIAL ENERGY, but you know you just have to find them.[/b]

    Look! There's another creature! It looks like an OWL, but you have no idea what an OWL is anyway. It's hard being a HATCHLING.[/b]
