Mana P5y1s10

Mana: And so it was written: Pokiehlember 5th, Year 1, Dryad's Day. The harbor of Undine, where the Emperor's battleship is docked.
Mana: You can just sorta row out past that tremendous, looming iceberg to meet it.
Veracruz gently rows the boat down towards the battleship
Veracruz: "Does get kinda chilly near the iceberg"
Xsaieta: "Aw, if you need to borrow my jacket… just lemme know, okay?"
Veracruz: "Nah, it's okay, I can handle. But you're definitely going to row the other half"
Xsaieta: "Aw, you know it."
Mana: Eventually, the tremendous battleship is reached - its huge sides gleam in the fading light, and the enormous cannon on its deck is pointed upwards. A metal-and-rope staircase runs up the side nearest to you, waiting for you to dock.
Mana: A wallrus sits on the edge of the ice-berg, watching your boat.
Mana: It's sort of like a walrus, just… a monster, and moreso.
Veracruz looks at the beast staring at them from the iceberg for a moment
Aurora whistles softly at the size of the thing.
Xsaieta waves good-naturedly to the wallrus. "Sorry, buddy. Don't have any slabs of…" -he turns to Cruz. "What do they even eat, I wonder?"
Veracruz: "I think it might be fish"
Veracruz: "Or ice, some monsters eat ice I think"
Mana: It bays at the moon - a gigantic, blubbery beast with long tusks, wrinkled grey hide, and an iron backpack strapped to its little flipper arms.
Theodore: "Moooostly fish. And people that get too close."
Veracruz: "Sounds the case- Either way- where is he? I was sure he got on the boat"
Theodore: "He's just bein' quiet and shy and bashful 'cause of all these people around. He's a delicate, sensitave soul."
Xsaieta looks mischeviously thoughtful.
Aurora blinks. "…Him? Delicate and sensitive?"
Aurora: "Are we talking about the same person?"
Theodore: "Well sure."
Veracruz: "I guess Theo knows him better than we do"
Theodore: "I mean, observe as he's too aflutter and embarrassed to do anything at all while all eyes are upon him:" Theodore turns to Vlad, sits up straight, then clasps both of his hands against the other man's cheeks and begins to smoosh them around, not unlike an old grandmother. "Lookit 'em, he's so adorable!"
Mana: The Captain of the battleship - a gigantic monster-of-the-bridge, with pushbroom beard and blazing gold cap and coat - looks down over the railing.
Mana: "Ho there! You're the emissaries I'm shooting to the moon, right?"
Mana: "Hmph! Those cheeks are some smooshable."
Theodore: "Yup, that's us!"
Xsaieta breaks his composure, starting to giggle into a sleeve, attempting to control himself enough to salute the captain. "We sure are."
Mana: "COME ON UP!"
Theodore pats Vlad on the head twice after letting go of his face, then hauls himself up onto the boat deck.
Veracruz: "That is indeed us" he chuckles, heading up the deck
Mana: "HAHAHAH!" He shouts, helping the pure hearts up the last few steps, taking each of their hands in turn.
Mana: "Fine day to be shot out of a cannon, friends. Never thought we'd be sending anyone back to the moon."
Mana: "You know, it was this ship what hauled it back here, you know!"
Mana: "Giant chain and everything. Had no business bein' all the way in the East."
Theodore: "Oh yeah?"
Aurora: "…Huh, I hadn't heard that before, actually."
Mana: "Emperor stuff!"
Mana: "The east's a lovely place, lemme tell you. Weird little golden streets, but the food! And the people!"
Mana: "Ahhhhh."
Mana: "Shame we stomped em into the dust, but they seem to be doin' alright!"
Veracruz: "Really now? That's a story I haven't heard"
Mana: "Well… we conquered em…"
Mana: "And you know, used to be, you could reach the moon by going far enough east."
Mana: "But we shot an anchor into it, dragged it all the way back up here, and floated it right there-"
Xsaieta: "Huh. I can see why the moon might have wished to tarry there a while, but she probably was homesick." He smiles.
Mana: He points up, above the Tower of Jinn. Way up in the sky.
Mana: "And now it's here!"
Veracruz: "Uhn… Interesting"
Mana: "Ah, that was a bloody fine war. Lunarians got siren-ships, and goldsharks, and the lunarot-"
Mana: "Which, I mean, is just poison-"
Mana: "Except ya GLOW."
Xsaieta: "The politest of poisons, letting everyone else know to stay far away."
Mana: He scratches one of his bushy, hairy ears.
Mana: "Makes it easy to know where to aim the cleanse magic, right? Damn polite!"
Theodore nods seriously.
Veracruz: "It is true
Vladislav: "So, how long until the cannon is operational?"
Xsaieta: "All business, this one."
Mana: "Smoosh smoosh smoosh smoosh…" The captain murmurs to himself, before actually answering Vladislav's question.
Mana: "You load it, we fire it!"
Mana: "We're raring to go."
Vladislav: Excellent. I hope you land in a most uncomfortable manner, Theodore. "
Xsaieta stage-whispers: "(That's how you know he likes him!)"
Theodore: "Well I mean we're gettin' shot out of a cannon into the moon, seems liek good odds."
Theodore glances side to side, spots the cannon, then climbs into the open barrel.
Aurora: "I still can't believe we're doing this."
Veracruz looks up at the cannon "No special procedure to load, right?"
Mana: Oh, Veracruz! Your package!
Mana: "Just climb on in."
Theodore: "I know, right?"
Veracruz blinks, tosses a large, long package to Aurora "Oopsy"
Aurora: "…Huh?"
Veracruz: "Almost forgot that one, got this earlier and didn't see you in forever"
Veracruz: "Delivery for you"
Mana: A package in white-paper, tied with string.
Aurora blinks, untying the string. "Huh… thanks."
Theodore: "I hope it's not dragons this time!"
Veracruz then jumps up at the cannon's barrel for a moment, looks down, and hops in
Veracruz: "Well, it's not for Vlad"
Xsaieta does a flying leap into the air, backflips, and dives into the cannon. If you're going to the moon, you may as well be a showoff about it.
Vladislav carefully climbs into the cannon. No flashy tricks for this one.
Mana: Inside is a simple long-sword, and matching shield. The metal is a stark white, except for a grey symbol of a deer's antlers upon the shield: the [Wish for the Future - Sword - PWR12 - Shield Block: Gains a resistance against any one elemental attack each battle.]
Aurora: "This might be handy where we're going, I'll have to thank the sender later…"
[OOC] Mana: …End stances after Shield Blocking.
Aurora stows away her current White Sword before strapping the two on, sword on her belt and shield on her back, before reluctantly climbing into the cannon herself…
Vladislav: "So before we fire off…"
Mana: There's a little thunk as everyone slips into the cannon. Thunk! Thunk!
Vladislav: "Did any of you think it was a good idea to hold a Luna weakness when going to the Luna temple? I don't want a repeat of Shade."
Theodore checks his jewelry. "…nope!"
Xsaieta: "That would be silly!"
Veracruz: "I can't even do that if I wanted"
Vladislav: "You say that, yet two of them decided otherwise last time."
Vladislav: "Fire us off anytime now. The whole 'not knowing when it's going to happen' thing is making me uneasy."
Aurora: "…I could switch the Found Wanting during this."
Mana: "Oh. Ahaha." The Captain says. "Right."
Mana: "FIIIIIII-REEEEEEEEEE!"
Mana: BLAMMO!
Theodore: "WWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"
Mana: And the pack of you are shot way, way up, hurtling right towards the moon, arcing gracefully through the air -
Mana: Landing among the golden towers of Moon Town, skidding to a stop in the golden moondust.
Mana: I mean, except for Theodore.
Theodore: "?!"
Mana: Theodore is caught by a strange woman, sort of steely-soft, a web of golden antennae jutting out from her back, almost like spider-web wings. An automaton, almost definitely. Her voice echoes weirdly as she sets him safely down: "Careful, now."
Theodore: "Heya, nice catch!"
Vladislav scowls, clearly not impressed. "I should have known."
Xsaieta goes arse-over-tip and rolls around a few times, struggling to his feet in a fit of giggling. "Good morning. It's… still morning up here, isn't it?"
Mana: The towers are silver-and-gold, shining gently. Parts of them twist and rotate, like some strange ruin. There are archways leading inside some of them.
Theodore dusts himself off as he's set down, then offers a smile to the woman. "Name's Theodore! We're here lookin' for the luna palace."
Mana: "When there's something up here I wish to do, I make time. Until then, there isn't any. Welcome to the moon, all of you."
Mana: She points down the street, to the shore of an inky-black crater-sea, and to the temple at its center -
Mana: "It's right there."
Veracruz skids on the ground until he lands on a stop "Well… That was at an angle" he looks at the person "Hello"
Theodore: "Right on, closer than expected."
Xsaieta: "Hm." He stands, fails to dust himself off. "Man, it's been a while."
Veracruz: "You've been here before?"
Theodore: "I can't imagine he hasn't."
Veracruz: "That is true, although he wasd almost begging for someone to ask that question"
Xsaieta waves his hand in the air and wobbles it back and forth while making a funny face, like that somehow answers Cruz's question.
Mana: It certainly does!
Aurora picks herself up, remembering to change out the Love in Solitaire for the Found Wanting. "Ah, thanks for the welcome."
Veracruz: "Either way!" he nods to the woman "Thank you for picking up Theo, and pointing the way" he looks at the man he had just mentioned "Ready to roll?"
Veracruz: "Though I am in fact curious about this place…"
Mana: "This is the sacred village of the moon," She explains.
Mana: "We used to be part of the Moon Kingdom."
Mana: "Now, we aren't. Nevertheless, our work continues."
Veracruz: "I see. Do you do any particular work, or are you simply living here?"
Mana: "We're all sort of industrial workers, like the kind from your Salamander district."
Veracruz: "Oh, see. Must be a lively place"
Mana: "Some of us grow and cook food for some of us. Others do maintenance and repair for the others."
Mana: "Yes." She says. "It is."
Veracruz: "Definitely should come visit later, if that wouldn't be bothersome"
Mana: "It wouldn't be, in our public places."
Veracruz nods "I'll keep that in mind"
Mana: "I wish all of you good luck on your pilgrimage."
Theodore offers the woman a brief bow, before turning towards the palace.
Mana: She folds one arm to her shoulder, then nods seriously. I guess that's the local salute.
Mana: A sea of starry oil separates you from the palace, at the shore of the village.
Mana: It laps over gemstone starfish and strands of gossamer seaweed.
Mana: There's a bell at the dock.
Veracruz just spends some time staring at the sea "Wow… It's like a sea of stars, really" he looks at the bell "Suppose we need to call the ferry/"
Theodore pauses, glances around, then rings the bell.
Mana: In the distance, your boat arrives - a little rodent snout peeks out of a dark cloak, worn by the hunched figure that sculls the boat closer and closer.
Mana: "Passage to the Moon Palace." He says.
Mana: "Two lucre each."
Theodore puts a hand under his chin after handing over two lucre. "You seem familiar, somehow."
Veracruz pulls out his two lucre, handing over to the boatman, then looks at Theo
Mana: "I get around." He explains.
Theodore: "Charon?"
Mana: "Yup."
Theodore snaps his fingers in triump. "Ah, cool." And he climbs aboard.
Xsaieta: "Yo. Nice seein' ya." And he passes over the lucre, and climbs in.
Mana: "…Same to you."
Aurora climbs aboard, handing over two lucre as well.
Veracruz reaches into Vlad's pocket, pulling out two of his lucre and handing over to Charon, then steps in himself "There we go"
Mana: Scull, scull, scull.
Mana: "There used to be a big ferry line, here."
Mana: "But now, well, it's just me."
Mana: "…Find a niche and fill it, right?"
Veracruz: "Yep, go where people need you and all"
Theodore: "Casuality of the war, or?"
Mana: "Naw. Just not enough need for it, since the moon got moved."
Mana: "…Lot harder to make the pilgrimage, these days."
Theodore: "Ah, yeah that would do it too."
Mana: As he approaches the far shore, the Moon Palace comes into sight -
Mana: its pavement plazas, where the fountains flow with starry water, pouring over black marble. Stairs gently connect them - empty stalls near stone benches suggest this was once a place where people gathered.
Mana: The remnants of papers in its trash-bins rustle in the wind.
Xsaieta steps off the boat, tail swishing back and forth. "(…so quiet.)"
Theodore: "S'pretty."
Mana: The palace's windows are mirror-glass. A huge spheroid sculpture occupies most of the first plaza.
Veracruz: "It is… A pity people don't come over anymore, looks like a great place"
Veracruz looks at the sculpture, is it something he can identify?
Mana: It's just a big ol sphere, with a tiny, tiny crater carefully carved from it.
Mana: The moon itself, maybe, by symbolism.
Mana: …Or something else?
Xsaieta: "Hmph. People just need to make the extra effort, that's all. If you're making a pilgrimage to the Luna you should be prepared to think outside of the box in the first place."
Mana: There's the faintest suggestion of a ripple carved near it.
Veracruz caerfully looks over the sculpture "There's that, Xsai. Still, i'd definitely like to see the place more lively"
Veracruz: "Shall we move on, though? I wonder what else lies ahead"
Vladislav: "… playing with my face is bad enough, but now you're taking my money Theodore?"
Theodore: "That was Cruz, dude. Also, it was for Charon's ride."
Veracruz: "That was me, you were kind of holding everyone back"
Vladislav: "I suppose I have other things on my mind at the moment."
Vladislav: "Speaking of when did Xsai get here and where did Alexander go?"
Theodore: "I have no idea what you're talked about, Xsaieta met up with us at the Undine docks and I haven't seen Alex in a while."
[OOC] Theodore: talking^
Vladislav: "Strange. I must have crossed into a parallel dimension again. The Shade Palace did some weird things."
Theodore: "Entirely possible."
Xsaieta: "Man, we just kinda come and go. There's even a mathematical formula for it they figured out down in the shade!"
Vladislav: "At any rate I am here now."
Mana: Stairs lead up to the palace entrance.
Mana: An informative plaque by its side has a little map of it, too!
Vladislav glances at the map. "For how touristy this seems it certainly isn't busy."
Theodore scans the map before they climb! Not that he'll retain much of it, but, you know. It's important to find the 'you are here' sticker.
Theodore: "They did kinda have an unexpected location change."
Mana: You're here, at the entrance - it seems like there's a sort of a streetcar line running around the outer edge of the palace, with the interior being cross-shaped - five main rooms.
Aurora: "Seems simple enough…"
Theodore: "Oh man, they got streetcars here too!"
Vladislav: "Guess we'll just go in and see where it takes us."
Vladislav continues to ascend the stairs.
Veracruz: "Uhn… Yeah, might as well" he follows up Vlad
Theodore: "(I wonder if it's still running…?)" Theodore trails after Vladislav.
Mana: "Foyer" , "Agitor" (with the "Shrine" inside it), "Aques" , "Archives" , "Verhas" .
Mana: At the top of the stairs: The foyer room, with one of the… streetcars, parked outside it. Silver-sleek and serpent-shaped, the windows glide open with a cheery beep-beep as Vladislav nears them.
Vladislav: "Are these even big enough for all of us?"
Mana: Standing and sitting room!
Veracruz: "Wanna check out the Shrine straight away?"
Theodore: "Well they don't seem super busy!"
Mana: A patch of star-oil fulminates inside the foyer. Two strange red masks float about, as well as a silver-skinned, shining fish.
Xsaieta: "Man, it almost seems a shame to not go for the full tourist experience. The place is probably super lonely."
Mana: It swims gently through the air, nipping at prey only it can see.
Theodore: "I'm down for whatever."
Veracruz: "Hrm… Might as well check out everything, ain't it, Xsai?"
Veracruz: "Not like we won't anyway"
Mana: Anyway, you can board the train, or head into the foyer.
Vladislav makes his way into the foyer. "We should check the current destination before heading to another."
Theodore: "Makes sense!:
Mana: Cruz, you're still running Combat Prep, right?

[OOC] Mana: Got 1440 EXP. Got 9 AP. Got 288 Lucre.
Vladislav looks around the Foyer proper now that the trash has been dealt with.
Xsaieta looks up, to make sure no dragons fall on them out of nowhere, on some weird instinct. "Phew."
Mana: A broad, open room with a corridor leading further in, full of counter-tops and upholstered, faux-leathered bench seating.
Mana: A glass corridor leads deeper, past a caution-tape barrier.
Vladislav ducks under the caution tape and continues down the path.
Theodore: "No regard for authority!"
Theodore slips under after Vladislav.
Vladislav: "Need I remind you of your behavior in the Pure Lands?"
Vladislav: I do not think you are one to talk, Theodore. "
Theodore: "What'd I do in the Pure Lands? I was perfectly well behaved."
Xsaieta giggles.
Vladislav: "Of course you were."
Veracruz shakes his head slightly, following in behind Theo and Vlad "Very pretty place nontheless. We're making our way to the shrine in here already or are we taking some side-paths first?"
Vladislav: "Honestly I have no idea if the shrine is this way or not. There's five rooms after all."
Mana: It leads into a strange, dark, metal room - gigantic, barely lit by red emergency lights at the very top of it.
Xsaieta grins radiantly at Veracruz, teeth gleaming like polished weapons. "Oh, I'm just here to smash things."
Theodore: "Ya'll don't even read, the Shrine was inside the Agitor. It was marked."
Mana: Huge rectangular objects fill it, strangely engraved, in a grid.
Mana: A catwalk leads down to the ground floor.
Mana: High above, hanging from the ceiling, is a pulsing golden thing, with a band of red light flowing across it like a river.
Veracruz: "Right, I was asking if you guys wanted to go somewhere else or head straight in the Agitor, sheesh" he looks at Xsai "Don't smash the walls now, we need those to hold the ceiling"
Mana: It's made of cubes and cubes melded together - like a chrysalis of pyrite.
Veracruz looks up at the object "What?"
Mana: One of the blocks in the center of the room, beneath it, is a bit taller.
Veracruz: "This looks like some sort of… Training area…"
Mana: The room's icy cold, and you can hear fans spinning. Your breath fogs.
Theodore: "Training area?"
Xsaieta walks down the catwalk, obviously.
Veracruz: "Y-yeah- That's the vibe i'm getting but I think i'm wrong nontheless" he follows down Xsai
Veracruz looks around at the objects "Wonder what those are"
Mana: A seam around the object's waists is softly glowing, pulsing brighter and dimmer.
Mana: They're hot to the touch.
Mana: And as Xsaieta heads down the catwalk - tunk, tunk, tunk, down to ground-floor.
Mana: The chrysalis-like thing… swivels. And speaks.
Mana: "Some one's here"
Xsaieta: "Yup!"
Theodore: "Hi!"
Veracruz: "Oh, hi there, sorry to bother"
Xsaieta: "It's probably been a while, huh?"
Mana: "Where are you"
Theodore: "In the room behind the foyar, obviously."
Vladislav scrunches up his face. This is… odd.
Xsaieta: "Well, I mean, it probably can't see us. It's okay, we're just tourists! Pilgrims. Tourist-pilgrims."
Mana: "Ill find you" the voice continues.
Mana: There's a sound like a distant siren…
Theodore turns to Xsaieta.
Theodore: "Is it just me,"
Mana: …Is it coming from the object at the top of the room? You could probably climb up one of the blocks to reach it, if you had to.
Aurora: "Does that sound ominous to anyone else?"

Xsaieta: "There was like, the one, right when it started talkin'?"
Theodore: "Hmm. I guess. Still, it's weird to say ill when you mean I'll!"
Veracruz headscrataches
Veracruz: "This is… Bizarre"
Vladislav pauses before glancing around the room to find a spot to whack it with his book.
Mana: There are panels on some of the blocks the same color as it. But you may just have to climb atop one of the central pillars to reach it!
Vladislav groans before starting the climb. He isn't good at this sort of thing. [Do I need to spend an action moving or]
Xsaieta was actually heading this way anyways, though: He gets underneath the object and clambers up the pillar underneath it.
[OOC] Mana: Nope!
Vladislav eventually makes it to the top before experimentally tossing his book at the object. [Attack - 31D]

Mana: Holes open up in the various objects that fill the room, and monsters float out -
Mana: Two are dark things, grinning, sort of coaelacanth shaped, glimmering at the seams.
Theodore: "So what's your deal anyway dude? Some sort of guard or sentinel?"
Mana: The other two are glowing jellyfish.
Veracruz: "Why, may I ask, are you trying to hit it, Vlad"
Xsaieta: "Well, I mean."
Xsaieta: "If we bust it out of its chrysalis, then it'll be able to see us, and it'll stop being freaked out!"

Veracruz: "Still not a good reason for me but what can one do?"
Xsaieta scratches behind an ear and gives the object a weird look. "Naw you're not, there's way too much gold and way not enough brass. Maybe all the brass is on the inside, though?" He takes a huge swipe at it with his sword, trying to look inside. [Sucker Punch D50]

Mana: The fiend begins resonating, shuddering, tumbling as it crashes from its housing, shattering to luminous dust.
Mana: Also the jellyfish decide to go somewhere else.
Veracruz looks down at the dead fiend, then looks at Vlad "You need to look like that more often"
Aurora: "I don't think anyone would take him seriously ever again, if he did."
Xsaieta: "Hm. Guess it was the temple's fiend after all."
Veracruz: "Part of the point"
[OOC] Mana: Got 3240 EXP. Got 648 Lucre. Got 26 AP.
Theodore: "Hold up."
Theodore: "Who was taking him seriously to begin with?" Theodore tilts his head to the side in the most exagurated way possible.
Vladislav clasps a hand to his chest dramatically. "Truly Theodore, I am hurt! Perhaps I should use my Pure Heart powers right now and become a moogle!"
Theodore: "I'm not callin' that bluff, dude."
Theodore: "Also that was exciting."
Vladislav: "Just think. Of all things a Moogle calls upon the Eclipse tonight. It'd make for a dumb story."
Theodore: "Wasn't expecting a kill spell to be so… obviously labelled."
Theodore nods towards Vladislav.
Xsaieta: "Luna doesn't necessarily mean Shade!"
Aurora: "I was hoping I could tough it out, but no."
Mana: The block at the center of the room opens, leading into the Shrine.
Veracruz: "It was very efficient"
Vladislav: "By the way, after that moogle counter attack I'm in dire need of healing."
Veracruz looks at Xsai "I was expecting a lot of damage! Not straight death"

Theodore: "Just lead with it next time, I guess?"
Theodore heads down into the shrine.
Xsaieta: "Kinda wish I'd had some time to fuck around a little and give y'all MP back, but, I mean, we made it through, that's what counts."
Theodore: "Yeah."
Mana: The box at the center waits for everyone to enter.
Veracruz: "Good enough, yes!"
Vladislav: "No. It's weak initially."
Vladislav: "I had enough stacks to double its potency."
Mana: Then, it shuts, and zooms upwards, phasing up to…
Theodore: "Oh right, the book."
Veracruz jumps down, finally "Either way let's not let Luna waiting too much-"
Veracruz is caught a little off-balance once it goes up "Whoa"
Mana: The top of the Moon Palace. It looks out over the entire world - you can see the horizon curling up in all directions. The lights of the Moon Kingdom, to the far east… the forests of the north, the states of the south…
Mana: It's difficult to make out details, but it's all there.
Mana: In the middle of a fountain lined with gold rings, Luna appears, waiting.
Veracruz looks around at the world "It is true, huhn…"
Xsaieta gets just the hugest grin on his face. "Who knew the world was so big, huh..?"
Theodore: "Wooooah!"
Veracruz: "Unusually tiny, actually. Regardless"
Veracruz goes up to Luna, bowing
Mana: It nods back.
Vladislav raises [The Longedfor] into the air as he begins to speak, the gem pulsing as the air around them shifts. [Song of the Spirits]
Mana: Luna smiles.
Mana: "…In the beginning…"
Xsaieta kneels to Luna, putting his other thoughts aside for the moment. Even years in Salamander and Wisp didn't beat the moon-dust out of him.
Mana: "Hello, my children."
Mana: "Sitting on this paper moon, I am Luna, an extension of the Luna."
Theodore: "Heya."
Mana: "You've unsealed four palaces now, and four spirits."
Veracruz: "Hello. It's true, we have"
Mana: "In a way, you can think of this as your… 'halfway point'."
Mana: "The new era… can you taste it on your lips? Will it taste of nectar, or soda-pop?"
Vladislav: "I'm hoping soda pop."
Mana: "This is the night of the Eclipse, too."
Vladislav: "It is."
Theodore: "Yup!"
Veracruz: "Oh yes, it is"
Veracruz: "I expect a great deal of problems from that"
Xsaieta: "I think the Luna answer to that is 'yes', isn't it?"
Vladislav: "I hope you're looking forward to it, Luna."
Vladislav: "It's going to be grand."
Mana: "It's about time, isn't it?"
Vladislav: "Almost."
Mana: "There's a piece, I heard, once."
Mana: "It was called 'Everything Leaves, but the Emperors'."
Mana: "The valor of the great birds of the south pole, who weather the harshest winters…"
Mana: "The song was about that, I think."
Vladislav: "I am afraid you are mistaken by the way, Luna. This is not the halfway point."
Mana: "Oh?"
Vladislav: "Salamander, Jinn, Shade, Dryad, Luna. You are the fifth."
Vladislav: "Unless you are implying there are ten spirits."
Mana: She smiles. "I guess I miscounted."
Veracruz: "Well when there are nine someone has to be in the middle, right?"
Xsaieta: "Like the last one was going to have the grace to have a mysterious conversation with us about the structure of narrative."
Xsaieta: "Maybe Shade would have been down with that, but…"
Theodore: "There's eight, Cruz."
Veracruz: "I- Forgot entirely"
Vladislav: "So, I've always been curious."
Vladislav: "Why do some people call you Aura?"
Mana: "What sits in opposition to tradition, to the way things are?"
Mana: "You can think of there being two forces for change in the world."
Mana: "One is change from outside… Luna."
Mana: "The other is change from within… Aura."
Theodore: "Man, what century did you grow up in? No one calls her that."
Vladislav: "I've been reading books lately. If I may remind you I now own Exmillia."
Vladislav: "There is much lost history there."
Mana: "The latter is bound to the very fabric of this world. Diluted. Found in its factories, its street-cars, yoked to the rise and fall of the Emperor himself."
Theodore: "Ah, fair enough."
Veracruz: "Hrm… Isn't that interesting… Seems like… Thus… Aura is almost the essence of this very world…"
Mana: "Mana that's everywhere can't be seen…"
Mana: "…I think it works something like that."
Veracruz: "Hrm… It makes sense, with his plan"
Xsaieta: "Hmm, yeah…"
Mana: "Titania was designed to change everything, you know. What's more suitable?"
Mana: "An invention to leap free of the very rules of fate itself."
Theodore: "Seemed like it worked pretty well… for a while."
Mana: Luna shakes her head.
Mana: "It hasn't worked at all, yet."
Mana: "The Imperial trap has not been sprung."
Theodore: "Oh?"
Xsaieta: "Yeah, we have lots of mysteries, but his love affair with the Luna ain't one of 'em."
Veracruz: "A trap you say?"
Mana: Luna rubs a finger against her golden brow.
Mana: "Spring-loaded, like a bear trap."
Mana: "What are some of the rules of Fate, again?" She asks, as if she doesn't know.
Xsaieta: "He built a machine for reshaping reality, that takes a fair bit of lunacy."
Vladislav: "One cannot fight their fate unless they are Pure of Heart and expend KP."
Theodore: "Things suck, PHs rule, violence is always the solution, winter ends everything, uh…"
Veracruz: "It's basically a story about heroes fighting, kind of sucks for the other people involved"
Mana: "Right. And the world still works like that…"
Mana: "Until, all at once, it doesn't."
Mana: "He's told you about the " Miracle ", right…?"
Theodore: "Sometimes I get to solve problems without killing people!"
Xsaieta: "Emperor, not the biggest fan of the three-act structure or the unstated assumption that you need conflict to drive a plot."
Theodore glances between Vladislav and Xsaieta.
Vladislav stares back at Theodore.
Theodore: "I don't recall a miracle off hand, at least. Maybe it was phrased differently? Hm."
Vladislav: "I don't recall it being mentioned. Care to explain?"
Veracruz: "Hadn't directly called anything a miracle, no"
Mana: "The ultimate goal of the Titania machine."
Theodore: "Oh, to stave off winter?"
Theodore: "Or, at least, persist through it?"
Xsaieta: "It's the non-sequitur in the Emperor's four-act structure."
Xsaieta: "The, uh, the Luna bit."
Mana: "That's right. That everything that the whole story has been building up to…"
Mana: "To come up to the precipice, where it seems like things can only go one way…"
Mana: "That the universe itself is demanding a certain resolution…"
Xsaieta: "You have your introduction, your build-up, and then the luna twist that makes you see everything a totally different way."
Mana: "But the tension will be so high, the stakes so absolute…"
Mana: "The passion, the longing, the love, even-"
Veracruz: "That it can't move anywhere at all?"
Mana: "The love burning in everything such that-"
Mana: "That it will collapse and make the impossible move."
Mana: "That's the Miracle."
Mana: "The way things cannot go."
Mana: Luna smiles.
Theodore scracthes behind his head.
Mana: "And it's Eternal Winter."
Veracruz: "Hrm… It's going to be grandious"
Veracruz: "Grandious success or failure, that is"
Xsaieta: "Or it's just a shift in perspective."
Mana: "Vladislav…"
Mana: "…I want to see the Eclipse."
Veracruz: "People really could use a shift in perspective…" he says to nobody at all
Mana: "Show it to me."
Vladislav: "As do I, Luna. Tonight."
Mana: "Isn't it late enough?"
Vladislav: "The sun has just begun to set."
Xsaieta: "(Tease.)"
Mana: "Ah, so I see."
Veracruz: "Hey, why don't we watch the sunset from up here in the moon while we wait?"
Theodore: "Guess it can be hard to tell from here, huh?"
Vladislav: "You may watch it from your palace tonight. It'll be quite the view."
Veracruz: "It's not like the forces out there will let him do it in peace, he'll need us around"
Mana: "That's right."
Vladislav: "Speaking of, I have requests to make of you, Luna."
Mana: "Oh?"
Xsaieta: "Now that I'm thinking of it, I wonder what -is- going to set off his Miracle, exactly."
Vladislav: "Are you familiar with how Pyrargite and Shade are now ruled by spirits?"
[OOC] Vladislav: *Cassiterite
Veracruz makes a light *ahem* noise "You shifted words there, Vlad"
Mana: "Yes!"
Veracruz looks at Xsai "What will trigger it… We don't know, aside from perhaps one thing"
Mana: "How interesting that our magic is being given back to us, after it was stolen."
Vladislav: "It is rather nice, isn't it?"
Veracruz: "The Miracle will trigger when the story is about to come to a close"
Vladislav: "It's the least I could do, all things considered."
Theodore: "No one respects the delicate balance."
Theodore: "(We're greedy.)"
Mana: "Well, whatever gem you give to me…"
Mana: "I'll dangle it just above you in the new era."
Vladislav juggles [The Longedfor] in his hand before tossing it to Luna.
Mana: "We'll see what tricks you humans will do for it!"
Mana: "Ah, Calaverite. The Magician."
Mana: "I."
Vladislav: "I'm afraid I need this one back."
Vladislav: "I can't talk to you without it."
Mana: "At least until the new era, you can use it all you like."
Vladislav: "This is fair."
Mana: "The mastery of the other-world. The comet from beyond, the motion of the stars."
Mana: "Lunacy, the moon-effect, the ebb and flow of tides."
Mana: "Do you seek to direct the flow of things, like a wind flows over mercury?"
Vladislav: "Opposed to letting it flow its course? I do."
Vladislav: "That is after all, a privledge of a Pure Heart."
Mana: Luna holds it, clutches it to her chest, then tosses it back.
Mana: "Use it well."
Vladislav grins as he catches the gem. He then twirls the [Ancestral Offering] before bowing to Luna. "One last thing. I wish to unlock your powers on this gem. You won't object?"
Theodore: "Don't forget to pop the lock. Although, like, I wager putting forth the notion to get shot out of a cannon to get here may have done it anyway."
Theodore: "Yeah that."
Mana: "Unlocking can be done by the will of fellow humans, just as much as by spirits." Luna says.
Mana: And, just as Theodore said, Luna is unsealed for Vladislav.
Xsaieta claps politely.
Vladislav chuckles to himself before tossing the [Ancestral Offering] back to Theodore. "I've been wearing this for two days for this moment. How troublesome." [Learned Weirding, MP Absorb. Equipped The Longedfor]
Theodore catches it with a nod. "See, we got it for ya eventually."
Vladislav: "On that note, I suppose we'll be taking our leave? Veracruz you can find a way off the moon, yes?"
Theodore: "Man."
Veracruz: "You'll have to follow me unquestionably"
Theodore: "If we're here… we might as well explore it."
Theodore glances towards Xsaieta and Aurora.
Vladislav: "I suppose we can explore the other rooms of the palace."
Veracruz: "And leave only when I do"
Veracruz: "I was about to say that, Theo "
Vladislav: We don't have much else planned for tonight. "
Theodore: "There was a whole village where we landed too!"
Xsaieta: "Cruz…"
Vladislav: "Lead the way, then. I didn't catch the village."
Theodore: "And the Moon Kingdom should be around here somewhere too, right?"
Veracruz: "No it's on the East"
Theodore: "Wait, what?"
Veracruz: "They took the moon away from the kingdom, didn't you hear?"
Xsaieta: "…I know we haven't known each other for that long, although it seems like it's been quite some time… but have I ever once doubted you?" He grins.
Theodore: "Who names a place the Moon Kingdom… and then doesn't put it on the moon?!"
Veracruz grins at Xsai "No you haven't"
Aurora: "There is the other rooms, and that train…"
Veracruz: "The moon used to be in the moon kingdom! You know, you get there, keep going a bit and you reaach the moon"
Veracruz: "They kinda ripped it out of the kingdom and dragged it over here"
Veracruz: "You know like someone removed the front porch of your house and relocated it!"
Theodore folds his arms over his chest, unimpressed.
Veracruz: "Kingdom was a bit too big to fit in here, no doubt!"
Theodore: "Well anyway, it was nice speaking with you Luna! Take care now."
Mana: "Yes, you too."
Theodore gives a wave, then head sback towards the box to decend.
Veracruz nods to Luna "Indeed, until we next see eachother"
Mana: "Yes." She says. "Until then."
Mana: And so it was written.
