Thank you once again for all your kind feedback on the last episode. It really makes my day to read such supportive messages. Since it's the season to be generous, here's one of my personal favourite episodes. It's got more surprises than a big bag of surprising stuff. So I hope you enjoy it, and a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all! Vadamar: Well, that was... intense.
Yarilo: You think intense? How you think I feel?!
Vlis: You okay?
Yarilo: I fine... Dania: You think Saint Bozalotsch will help us now?
Murk: She'd better.
Grastion: We did everything she asked.
Atra: I... Atra: I just... I want to apologise. I've been such a... well, a spoilt cow.
Grastion: I could've told you that.
Yarilo: Let her speak.
Atra: I... I can't keep putting myself first. I'm going to be Queen of Roser, for Etain's sake! So I'm sorry for... well, for all of this. I can't promise anything, but I am going to at least try. Grastion: And all it took was nearly being boiled alive...
Atra: Trust me, I'd have preferred an easier way.
Grastion: Apology accepted. Just as long as you actually LISTEN to me next time.
Atra: As long as you aren't being a pompous prat, then fine.
Vlis: Good luck with that...
Grastion: Just think... Only six more saints to visit...
Atra: Urr... I don't think I can take any more. Vadamar: So who's next on the list?
Murk: Saint Porewit the Martyr.
Vadamar: Sounds like a bundle of fun. We must be near Vostok Village then?
Grastion: Not too far. But we're giving that place a wide berth...
Vadamar: How come?
Murk: We're not too popular there. Kind of got chased out of town last time...
Vadamar: Yeah, well I'm popular wherever I go, thank you. Maybe Atra could dazzle them with her new and improved attitude? Dania: Well, I think it's great Atra feels that way. We could all learn something from her.
Vadamar: Speak for yourself, Moonbeam. I'm perfect the way I am.
Dania: Hmm... Wish I could say the same.
Atra: Thanks anyway, Dania. Who knows, maybe you'll get the chance to change too. Although I hope for your sake it's not quite so hot... Vlis: So... you think we'll all have to something like that?
Yarilo: Certainly, da.
Vlis: I think I'll pass, thanks.
Yarilo: Nu, don't think we have a choice.
Vlis: Well... I suppose there's no point worrying about it now.
Yarilo: Wait til you nearly melted...
Vlis: *Gulp* Dania: It's lovely out here. The air's so fresh!
Murk: Would you... uh... like to go for a walk?
Vadamar: 'Walk', eh?
Dania: That'd be lovely!
Grastion: Play safe, kids.
Vlis: As long as I don't have to watch again. Atra: Yarilo, could I talk to you?
Yarilo: Uh... da... of course! What you want to talk about?
Atra: If you don't mind, I'd rather we went somewhere private. Do you mind?
Yarilo: Nyet! Th- that is okay. We can talk! Grastion: *Big yawn* Well, I've had enough excitement for one lifetime. Think I'm gonna turn in.
Dania: You're such an old man!
Grastion: Correction. I'm an old man with great hair. Vlis: I need to do some brewing. I got some great ingredients...
Dania and Murk: You don't want to know!
Vlis: I bet I could make a really good sickness draught... And that barn has a kiln! Grastion: Run that by me again? The barn?
Vlis: Oh, you can repeat things? Well done! Polly wanna cracker?
Grastion: I'm sleeping in the barn! I don't want you making your dirty little potions there!
Vlis: Well maybe I don't want you snoring there.
Grastion: I'll have you know I never snore!
Atra: Now now, I'm sure the barn's big enough for both of you.
Vlis: NOTHING'S big enough for his head.
Grastion: Usually I'd be insulted, but coming from a foul little witch, I don't care!
Yarilo: Be good and share!
Grastion: Hmph. Fine!
Vlis: Just don't disturb me. Vadamar: So, er... What am I gonna do?
Dania: You're a big boy now, Vadamar. You can look after yourself.
Vadamar: That's what my father said. When I was five...
Murk: Just do whatever you want. Run free!
Vadamar: But... everyone else is pairing off... Grastion: *Splutter!* I beg your pardon!?
Vlis: 'Pairing off'?! Whatever! Just because Clanky wants to tag along.
Grastion: I shall say this only once: Don't call me Clanky.
Vadamar: Well at least you're not alone...
*** Vadamar: Well, this makes a nice change. Vadamar dumped on his own. Again. Vadamar: You lot go and amuse yourselves. Me? No, I don't mind! Why would I? I mean, it's not like I'm not used to it. Every group needs a spare. I'm fine. Just. Fine. Dusk: I hope you're not feeling sorry for yourself. Because I'm fairly sure if we had to swap sob-stories, I'd win. Vadamar: Y- You!
Dusk: I do have a name...
Vadamar: What are you doing here?!
Dusk: I wanted to see you, actually.
Vadamar: What do you want with me?
Dusk: Just to talk. That's all, I promise. Vadamar: And why should I believe you? You're one of them! You attacked us!
Dusk: Trust me, if I wanted to hurt you, I'd have done it by now.
Vadamar: 'Trust you'?! How do you expect me to believe anything you say? You're just one of Bain's lapdogs. I bet he sent you here to try and turn me against the others! Well, I got news for you. Vadamar doesn't turn against his friends!
Dusk: Funny, I don't see any friends around here...
Vadamar: Well, they... They had other things to do...
Dusk: You don't need to defend them. They left you out, that's pretty obvious. And no, I don't think that's what good friends do. But that's not why I'm here.
Vadamar: Well... What do you want then? Dusk: Firstly, Bain doesn't even know I'm here. So I'm not following his orders or anything.
Vadamar: Going behind your boss's back?
Dusk: Bain has the tomes, but he's not my boss. I do what's in my own best interests.
Vadamar: Including attacking innocent people?
Dusk: I'd hardly say you lot were innocent. I see it this way: you aren't 'good' any more than I am 'bad'. It's just two different sides. I'm just asking you to hear me out, that's all. Can we sit down?
Vadamar: ...Fine. Vadamar: So what do you want from me?
Dusk: Nothing. In a perfect world, I'd like you to come with me. But I'm a realist, and I don't think that would happen.
Vadamar: No it won't! I mean... those others are lunatics! How can you be with them?!
Dusk: Bain isn't a lunatic. He's just been through things you or I can't imagine. Yes, I do disagree with some of his views, but... He's my best shot. As for the others... Garotte's only in it for the money. Reev and Bonelock enjoy it though. And they're strong. Not as strong as me, of course, but close.
Vadamar: They're freaks!
Dusk: Says the Darkchild! So I want to ask you... go home. Just leave this whole thing with the tomes alone. The others will stop anyone that gets in our way, and I have to say I'll be with them. But... I don't want to hurt you. Vadamar: I can't do that.
Dusk: Of course you can!
Vadamar: No, I can't. I don't have a home to go to.
Dusk: Then find one. I want to help you, Vadamar.
Vadamar: Really? Cuz from where I'm sitting, it sounds like you just want to get rid of the competition.
Dusk: I won't lie to you, maybe that is a factor. But I could take any of you on. I'm not worried about that. I just don't want to have to fight you. Believe it or not, I really do like you.
Vadamar: How do I know you never just planned all this? You probably knew who I was when you met me! Dusk: I promise you I didn't! When I saw you with the others, I was... I was gutted... I'm an honest person, Vadamar. I meant everything I said. I don't lie.
Vadamar: ...I believe you.
Dusk: This might sound silly, but... You made me feel so much better, back in Syever City... I thought, maybe, when I get better... I would find you again. It's not every day you find someone who's handsome... and sweet... and can make you laugh!
Vadamar: You'll have to introduce me to him...
Dusk: Ha ha, see?
Vadamar: I like you too... Most people I meet throw themselves at me... Sometimes because I tell them to, sometimes because I'm just so irresistable.
Dusk: And modest to boot.
Vadamar: I like the way you don't do that. With the others, it usually feels like they only want to be with me for one reason. Dusk: And I suppose you do nothing to encourage that?
Vadamar: Maybe a little...
Dusk: I thought so. You know... Bain mentioned you wanted the tomes for yourself. If it's not too personal... why was that?
Vadamar: I think we've gone past worrying about whether things are too personal... I wanted to find my mother.
Dusk: A Darkmaiden? No one's ever found one. Apart from when they're in disguise...
Vadamar: Which is why I needed the tomes.
Dusk: What would you do if you found her?
Vadamar: I don't know... Maybe... Tell her I'm okay. Show her who I am. Ask her why she left me...
Dusk: Tomes or not, I hope you get the chance to do that one day. Dusk: So... that's all I've got to say. But you're not going to leave, are you...?
Vadamar: Sorry to disappoint.
Dusk: That's okay. It was only a hope, anyway... I knew you'd be too stubborn. Can't blame a girl for trying, though. Dusk: *COUGH COUGH SPLUTTER*
Vadamar: Are you okay...?
Dusk: No, I'm *COUGH* dying...
Vadamar: I didn't mean that.
Dusk: I know. Just a little joke. Vadamar: I've heard funnier. Do you need to sit down? Can I get you anything?
Dusk: No, that's okay. Nothing's going to help.
Vadamar: It sounded really bad...
Dusk: I do realise that. And it gets worse everyday. Why else do you think I'd be putting myself through this? When Bain unlocks the tomes, everything will change. It's my only chance.
Vadamar: Why does it have to be him? Why can't anyone else do it?!
Dusk: Can you really see anyone else risking the very fabric of existence just to make me better? Those tomes are powerful! When Bain unlocks them, everything will change.
Vadamar: Then I'm going to do everything I can to stop him.
Dusk: And I'm going to do everything I can to make sure he succeeds. Vadamar: I'm sorry...
Dusk: I'm sorry too...
Vadamar: We'll see each other again, won't we?
Dusk: I think we will. I don't know whether that's a good thing or not, though... Stay safe, Vadamar.
Vadamar: Maybe... maybe you don't have to go? ~Maybe you could stay with me?~ Dusk: I told you before, that doesn't work on me!
Vadamar: I'm sorry, I just thought-!
Dusk: You thought wrong! Vadamar: I'm sorry.
Dusk: Just... Don't try so hard okay? You're a good person. If you want people to like you, that's all you need.
Vadamar: Well it's not working so far. I just... I just think this whole situation is rubbish... I don't want to fight people I like... I don't want anyone to die... and... I don't want to be alone... Vadamar: Dusk? ..... Great...
*** Yarilo: Nu... what you want to talk about...? Atra: Back there... In Bozalotsch's tomb... I just wanted to say thank you. And sorry.
Yarilo: How come you sorry? You saved my life!
Atra: You were only in danger because of me. You waited for me, but you could have gone ahead.
Yarilo: Nyet, I couldn't do that. Yarilo: It should be me to thank you. You save my life.
Atra: I wasn't going to just let you fry!
Yarilo: But I nearly pull you in.
Atra: You're heavier than you look. To be honest... I know this is a terrible thing to say... but I though I might have to drop you... I thought I was going to fall.
Yarilo: Don't be sorry. I told you let me go.
Atra: But then... I realised I didn't care if I did. Just as long as you were okay. You sort of got lighter after that. Suppose that's what they call adrenaline... Are you sure you're okay? That oil was really hot.
Yarilo: Some burns on legs...
Atra: Oh, I didn't realise! Are you alright?
Yarilo: Nosferatu heal fast... Atra: Oh, I didn't realise that... Must come in quite handy, I suppose!
Yarilo: Da, just keep pointy things away!
Atra: Ha ha ha! You know, your Omnian is getting better.
Yarilo: You think?
Yarilo: I learn from Grastion. He teach me new words.
Atra: As long as that's the only thing you pick up from him! You should keep your accent, though. It's nice.
Atra: You know... I suppose there is something else I wanted to say to you...
Yarilo: ...What? Atra: Well... I just wanted to say... And I'm saying this in private, because I know the others will make a big deal...
Yarilo: ...What is it...?
Atra: I like you, Yarilo. I mean, I really enjoy spending time with you.
Yarilo: You... you do?!
Atra: Of course. So thanks for being such a good a friend.
Yarilo: Yeah... friend...
Atra: Well, are you going to just lie there, or are you going to give me a hug? Atra: I'm gonna miss all of you when this is over. But especially you, Yarilo. You're probably the best friend I've ever had. Yarilo: You too...
Atra: Yarilo... are you okay? You're shaking! Yarilo: I fine...
Atra: Are you sure...?
Yarilo: Is normal...
Atra: When was the last time you... you know... fed...?
Yarilo: ...I have animals... but... it not work...
Atra: You need to feed on people, don't you...? Yarilo: ...I really sorry... I can't help it...
Atra: What are you going to do...?
Yarilo: I be okay for a few days...
Atra: And then?
Yarilo: ........I promise, I not hurt you...
*** Grastion: Do you mind!? Grastion: I am trying to get some sleep over here! How am I supposed to do that with that awful smell clogging up my nose?! What on earth are you concocting, anyway? Vlis: A deafening curse... One part foxglove leaves, three parts bats' blood, and one mummified ear.
Grastion: Why did I have to ask? Grastion: I have neither the time, energy nor enthusiasm for this.
Vlis: If you don't like it, you know what you can do. Plenty of fresh air outside.
Grastion: Oh, you'd like that, wouldn't you? Me admitting defeat? Well it's not happening. I claimed this place first. If anyone's leaving, it's you. Vlis: What a mature attitude. Finders keepers, eh? I stopped playing that when I was six. I suppose some people's brains just stop developing... Grastion: Oh really? So how come with your super-developed intellect, you still haven't sussed out that using a fire in a WOODED barn littered with STRAW is maybe not such a good idea?!
Vlis: Oh, go and get a manicure! Grastion: Really, I don't know why I hated witches before now. I mean, your effervescent personality and sparkling conversation have really won me over!
Vlis: And I don't know why I thought the HOL were all stuck-up, self-important gits. Oh look, I can do sarcasm too!
Vlis: Self-righteous ego-inflated pretty-boy! Grastion: .....................
Vlis: !!........................ Vlis: What... What was that?!
Grastion: I.... I.... I....
Vlis: I mean... You just.... You kissed me!
Grastion: You kissed me back! Vlis: That... That was just one of those things, right?
Grastion: Exactly! I mean... It happens to everyone, right?
Vlis: Right! Yes! Just one of those one-off things.
Grastion: Precisely! I mean, it doesn't mean anything, right?
Vlis: Of course not!
Vlis: ...................... Vlis: .................................
*** Murk: I suppose we should be getting back to the others. It's getting late... Dania: I've had such a wonderful time. I can honestly say this has been one of the best nights of my life! Not that I have all that much to compare it to, but... thank you.
Murk: No problem. I had a really good time as well. Maybe we could do it again some time...?
Dania: I'd love to! It's just a shame tonight has to end...
Murk: Maybe it doesn't have to?
Dania: How do you mean?
Murk: It can get fairly chilly sleeping under the stars... Maybe we could... snuggle up for warmth?
Murk: Just a snuggle! I promise, I'm a gentleman.
Dania: Then that sounds nice... Murk: Is that Vadamar? What's he still doing up?
Dania: Oh, I hope he hasn't been on his own all evening...
Murk: So what if he has? He's not a child. We're not here to babysit.
Dania: I know, but... I feel guilty... Everyone else sort of left him behind.
Murk: I couldn't very well invite him to come with us... I just wanted to be with you tonight.
Dania: I still feel bad though... It's not nice being left out. I know how that feels... Murk: I tell you what, if you feel that bad about it, why don't I go and keep him company for a little while?
Dania: You'd do that?
Murk: For you, I'd do anything.
Dania: I'll keep that in mind!
Murk: Now why don't you go and get our bed nice and warm. I'll come and join you in five minutes.
Dania: I'll be waiting!
Murk: Not as much as I will. *Mwah*
Murk: Mmm... You taste nice...
Dania: Not too nice I hope! ... Thank you for doing this, Murk.
Murk: Yeah, yeah, don't mention it. Murk: What's up, big man?
Vadamar: Oh, it's you...
Murk: Oi! Don't sound too pleased to see me!
Murk: So, is this rock taken, or should I make reservations?
Vadamar: Sit down if you want. Murk: So are you gonna tell me what's up, or am I gonna have to resort to horn torture?
Vadamar: I'm fine.
Murk: Look, I may not be that much of a people person, but I do know that when someone says they're 'fine', they never are. So why don't you just tell me what's up, and then we can sort it out.
Vadamar: ...I'm the spare part.
Vadamar: I'm the leftover one in the group. You and Dania always go off together. Yarry and Atra do the same. Grastion and Vlis always do their own thing. And then there's me. ...I don't fit in. Murk: Vad... You're not a spare part. You're one of us.
Vadamar: Then how come I always end up alone?
Murk: You think I've never been alone? How many years do you think I wandered up and down the country on my own? And then I met all of you. It's been so long since I've had any friends, I forgot how nice it is. And then there's Dania. Vad, I hunt monsters for a living. I'm not supposed find someone like her.
Vadamar: Whoopee for Dania...
Murk: What I'm trying to say is, if I can find someone, anyone can. You will find the right girl for you... or boy... or whatever, I'm not really sure with you... Anyway, don't feel left out. We all like you, even Grastion. So chin up, eh?
Vadamar: ...Why are you being so nice? Did you hit your head or something? Murk: Hah, I'll let that one pass.
Vadamar: Seriously, what's come over you?! You're usually all 'RAH, MUST KILL THINGS!' What's with all the hugging?
Murk: I'm just in a really good mood is all.
Vadamar: You wanna tell me why? Or do I have to resort to horn torture?
Murk: Just between you and me... I think I'm in love.... I can't believe I just said that!
Vadamar: So what's his name?
Murk: Hah hah, very funny.
Vadamar: So what am I, your dirty little secret?
Murk: A man's allowed to cuddle his friends. Especially when he's found the girl he's gonna marry.
Vadamar: I like this Murk a lot better than the angry one.
Murk: Just so we're clear, tell anyone about this and I'll dispose of you and make it look like an accident. Murk: You feeling a bit better now?
Vadamar: To be honest... yeah. Sometimes I think I just need some TLC, and everything's okay again.
Murk: Everyone's the same. You know... you remind me of my little brother... When we were at school, he'd cry and cry every day. And the teacher couldn't do anything with him. So they'd call me over, and I'd put my arm around him. He'd stop crying after a while and start sucking his thumb... Teacher said I had the golden touch.
Vadamar: I didn't know you had a brother.
Murk: Used to. I don't really talk about him so much. You just remind me of him, that's all.
Vadamar: He didn't happen to have a pair of horns, did he?
Murk: Not that I noticed! Vadamar: Murk...?
Vadamar: I like being with you.
Murk: Well, uh... thanks! I like being with you as well. But if you're feeling better now, I've got to be off. There's a warm bed with a gorgeous girl in it waiting for me. Don't want to leave her standing now. I tell you what, though. Any time you start feeling down again, you come see me, okay?
Vadamar: Do you have to go?
Murk: Sorry mate, but yeah.
Vadamar: ~Stay with me. Please.~
Murk: ~Okay. I'll stay with you.~ Vadamar: ~Don't leave me alone.~
Murk: ~I'll never you leave alone.~
Vadamar: ~Protect me, Murk.~
Murk: ~I'll always look after you.~
Vadamar: ~Show me you mean it.~ Murk: .......................
Vadamar: ........................... Murk: ....................
Dania: There you are! I was- Dania: Wh... What... What's going on...? Vadamar: ~.....Be mine, Murk?~
Murk: ~...I love you, Vadamar.~
Vadamar: That sounds so good... You don't know how long I've waited to hear someone say that... Dania: You... You love him?! So... So what am I?! Your fool on the side?! I can't believe I've been so blind! Murk: What?! Dania, no! I... I don't know what just happened! I swear to Morena, I didn't mean any of it! I don't understand what happened!
Dania: I'll tell you what happened! Apparently you found someone better!
Murk: It's not what it looks like! Dania: [SLAP!] Don't you DARE try and make this into my mistake! I saw everything!
Murk: Please! Please, Dania, just listen to me!
Dania: I don't need to hear it! Murk: Dania! I can explain! Please, just hear me out! Murk: YOU! What did you just do to me!? You made me do those things, didn't you!?
Murk: You FREAK! Do you realise what you've done!? You made me say those things! And you made me... You made me... Urrrgh!! Murk: I tried to be nice to you! And now look what you've done!
Vadamar: Didn't... Didn't you like it? Murk: RRRRRRRRRURGH! Vadamar: Urgh!
Murk: You SCUMBAG! That's how you get your kicks?! You're sick in the head! The only way anyone would ever love you is if you forced them!
Vadamar: I... I never meant to-
Murk: Well you did!! If I lose Dania because of you, your life won't be worth living! I was wrong before! You're gonna end up alone and THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT YOU DESERVE!
*** Grastion: So............
Vlis: So............... Grastion: That was... um...
Grastion: Probably best if we don't bring this up in front of the others.
Vlis: Oh, definitely. I mean, it's not really any of their business anyway.
Grastion: Of course not. Vlis: Just so you know, I don't go around doing this sort of thing all the time. Just in case you get the wrong idea. Grastion: Oh, me neither! I mean... I have morals!
Vlis: But I mean, it's not like it was my first time or anything, either.
Grastion: No, of course not. Me neither. Vlis: Just so we're both clear...
Grastion: Good to be clear...
Grastion: ............. Vlis: Okay, so it was my first time.
Grastion: Yeah, me too.
Grastion: Well, the priests don't exactly encourage it... Vlis: So... what did you think?
Grastion: Not bad, not bad. Quite good actually. Did I do okay?
Vlis: Oh, yeah, fine. No complaints. I liked that thing you did with my ear.
Grastion: Really? I heard Vadamar mention something like that. I just thought I'd give it a try.
Vlis: You should listen to him more. He really knows what he's talking about.
Grastion: That thing you did... with your finger...
Vlis: Oh, that... Look, I know it was wierd, but it doesn't make you-
Grastion: It was REALLY good.
Vlis: Oh. Well, thanks.
Grastion: You want to do that again?
Vlis: Yeah, why not? Vlis: Just so we're clear, I still think you're stuck up yourself.
Grastion: Oh, and I still think you're angst-ridden brat.
Vlis: Just so we're both clear....
Grastion: Good to be clear....
*** Murk: Dania! There you are! Murk: Thank Morena I found you! You shouldn't be out here on your own!
Dania: There's nothing out here worse than I've already seen.
Murk: Dania... I can explain everything... I promise you, it wasn't what it looked like. Murk: I was just talking to Vadamar, and all of a sudden... He said something, and... He made me say things. It was like it was me... but... it wasn't! I know that sounds stupid, but it's the truth! Dania: You don't have explain, Murk. I saw what happened. You want to be with him.
Murk: No, I don't! Just listen to me! Please! I want to be with you! I lo-... I really like you! Murk: Vadamar doesn't mean anything to me! If he dropped of the face of the earth right now, I wouldn't give a sodding rat's tail! But I don't want to be without you! I'm sorry you saw that, but I swear, it meant nothing. Just ask Vadamar! I'll go and get him, he'll tell you! It was all his fault!
Dania: No, I'd really rather you didn't...
Murk: I'm sorry, really I am. But that wasn't me back there! Dania: No Murk, I'm sorry.
Murk: What... what for...?
Dania: I forgot who I was...... My daddy used to read me fairy tales. There was one I loved more than the rest, about a princess kidnapped by a monster and locked in a tower. And then a knight on a white horse came and killed the moster, and rescued the princess, and they all lived happily ever after. I thought... I thought I was the princess, and you were my knight. But that's not true, is it? Murk: You're MY princess. I swear I'll do whatever it takes to prove it!
Dania: I'm no princess. I'm a monster.
Murk: What? No! You're beautiful! Dania: You don't have to lie! Just spit out the truth! I disgust you so much, you'd rather be with HIM!
Murk: That's ridiculous!
Dania: It's obvious. He's just far better than me! Well I'm sorry for wasting so much of your time! I hope you're very happy together. In fact, I hope you go and choke on his tongue! Murk: You don't mean that...
Dania: Oh I mean every word. Now leave me alone. If you want to snuggle with anything tonight, I suggest you go and find a snake. Preferably a poisonous one.
*** Vadamar: Alone again... Surprise, surprise... Vadamar: ...Uh, stop feeling sorry for yourself. This is your own fault. You shouldn't have done that. Even though it felt so gooood... No, it was wrong! Toldek: Vadamar? It is you! I knew it! I knew I'd find you! Vadamar: Oh, I really don't need this tonight...
Toldek: I've been searching high and low, all over Syever.
Vadamar: What do you want, Fanboy? Because I'm really not in the- Vadamar: Whoa! Have you been working out..?
Toldek: Heehee... maybe... You like it?
Vadamar: Yeah, it's-... Hang on, look, I've got a lot of things going on right now, so- Toldek: I missed you so much. When you left, I just walked around for days. I couldn't eat... couldn't sleep... I was like a walking corpse.
Vadamar: Trust me, I'm familiar with the living dead and their appetites are fine.
Toldek: And then I realised... I can't live without you. So I looked for you... and now I've found you... and everything's fine... just fine...
Vadamar: Look, maybe you should- Toldek: Your eye! What happened? Are you okay?
Vadamar: Yeah, it's fine. I'm fine. Really. I asked for it.
Toldek: How did it happen?
Vadamar: Wasn't looking where I was going... and walked into a fist. Toldek: You mean someone did this to you? Who was it?!
Vadamar: Calm down, Fanboy. It's alright, it was just Murk, and-
Toldek: Where is he? Show me where he is, he's not gonna get away with it!
Vadamar: -AND I deserved it. Besides, Murk might not be big, but he could pummel you into the ground.
Toldek: Well, we'll see about that. But if you want me to drop it, I will.
Toldek: I can't promise to keep my composure if I ever see this 'Murk' though...
Vadamar: You're really turning into a little firecracker, aren't you? Toldek: You want to see fireworks? I can show you fireworks.
Toldek: What's the matter?
Vadamar: I... I can't do this... Today's been a really, REALLY bad day... I just don't want to make it even worse.
Toldek: I don't want to make you feel bad. I want you to be happy. With me.
Vadamar: But I- Vadamar: Oh, damn it...
Vadamar: ............................. Toldek: .......What's the matter? Don't you like it?
Vadamar: No, it's not that. Trust me, it's not that! It's just that- Whoa, you really are pleased to see me, aren't you!?
Vadamar: No, wait! Focus Vadamar! Look, no offense, but I can't do this...
Toldek: What... Why not? Vadamar: Because I could... I mean, that's what I'd normally do, right? Good old Vadamar, can't say no to anyone, and no one can say no to him. How do you think I ended up with this shiner?
Toldek: I don't understand what you're saying... Vadamar: You're a good bloke. I like you. But you deserve better.
Toldek: I deserve you!
Vadamar: No. You deserve somebody who's not going to manipulate you, and use you, and then toss you to one side afterwards. Toldek: But... But I need you...
Vadamar: No... You don't. You think you do, because that's what I made you think. You think you're attracted to me, but only because I wanted you to think that. You think I'm a good person. But I forced you to think that. It's not real. None of it's true.
Toldek: No... I don't believe that! Toldek: And you know it's not true! Remember when you told me we could be together, forever? We can! I want us to be, and I know you do too! So come on, we can- Vadamar: Aren't you listening to me?!
Vadamar: None of it's true! I lied! I had you twisted around my little finger. You were my toy, my entertainment, nothing more! And now you think I'm special? Well I'm not! So just go! Toldek: ..... I'll leave...
Vadamar: Look, I'm sorry, okay...?
Toldek: You don't need to apologise.
Vadamar: It'll wear off... You'll forget all about me, I promise... You'll find someone else. Someone you really like... I just... I just can't keep doing this to people.... You're a good person, you know...
Toldek: So are you...
*** Atra: Porewit's tomb... Surprisingly tall for a tomb. Atra: Don't you think?
Atra: What is up with you lot? You've all been so quite all morning. It's really starting to freak me out. What's going on?
Everyone else: Nothing...
Atra: Why don't I feel convinced?
Male Voice: You must be the visitors? I've been expecting you. I must of course warn you against entering. Although from what I hear, you're quite a headstrong little group. So if you value your lives, stay away. If not, then vkhoditye, pozhaluysta! But listen well: Gluttony seeks quantity more than worth,
It takes more than it needs.
A gourmand, a glutton, a ravenous pig,
Less satisfied the more it feeds. Gluttony is the stumbling drunk,
The vomit splashed on his shoes.
Gluttony is his gossiping wife,
Insatiable for any news. Gluttony is a greasy mouth,
A tongue rapt in pleasure.
A marauder voracious for gold,
Despite his mountain of treasure. Gluttony, excess, over-indulgence,
Consuming to the point of waste.
An epicure devours as much as it can,
Regardless of the taste.
