Back for s'more. (S'mores...)

Ghostflower Soren
~~Fairytale Fields [S]~~


...
[Celebi, having used Athena's assistance, has warped Ku-ai to the ghostlier Fairytale Fields. They have been surrounded by some Fairy guardians, who immediately recognize Celebi and back away nervously...]
...
Fairy Guard: [Backing away...] R-run!!!
[They scramble relentlessly, screaming.]
Celebi: Wait!! ...What was all that?
Ku-ai[S]: Still playing dumb?
Celebi: [Agressive, he turns to Ku-ai.] Playing dumb for what!? What the hell is my fault!? Ever since I met you, literally pleading for help, you've been all over my goddamn case, accusing me of something I don't even know!!
Ku-ai[S]: ...[Rubs the back of his head.] I know it's you Celebi, but... I didn't even think you would be this persistent...
Celebi: Persistent? The only thing I'm chasing is my ticket back to my proper world, and all I need is just minutes out of you so called "Emanations"...
Ku-ai[S]: [Sighs.] ...Fine, I'll go with you.
Celebi: Thank you... I'm sorry I yelled and all, but...
Ku-ai[S]: ...We'll see about things, Celebi...We'll see if you're telling the truth.
Celebi: ...Good enough for me... [Turns to the direction of Castle Blossom. It is faint in the distance...]
Ku-ai[S]: But if you think I was hard on you, just wait... [Looks to the castle.] The Fairies will destroy you...
Celebi: [Gulp.] K-Kutzu...
...
[With Ku-ai's trust half-earned, the two make their way directly for Castle Blossom.]
...
[A few Fairies spot the two approaching. Fearful, they build up a small elite militia in front of Castle Blossom... Eventually, the two reach the garden.]
...
~~Castle Blossom [S]~~{Sync 2.}
[Ku-ai and Celebi stop on the brick path leading through the garden and up to the darkened castle. There, the militia waits with their weapons aimed and ready to fire, as well as close combat handlers.]
Ku-ai[S]: What'd I tell you...?
Celebi: This is like some nightmare... (Nightmares... hmm...)
[From the crowd, Star Ressa from the Winged Dancers steps forth. She is wearing a much darker red casaque.]
Ressa[S]: I don't know or need to know what abyss you were dug from...
Celebi: (This hatred is growing again...) I can't explain anything... Judging from how much Ku-ai was seeping with anger toward me, it'd be nearly impossible to get around to the Fairies...
Ressa[S]: What kind of trash are you attempting to throw on us...?
Celebi: ...[Lowers his head.] I'm sorry, I can't explain anything...
[Everyone watches carefully.[
...
Celebi: [Lifts his head. Some Fairies flinch merely at this.] ...Because I am not the same Celebi... I can't be... (Can I...?)
Ku-ai[S]: Listen, Fairies... I was super skeptical about this at first, but he just kept denying it to a point of plain ridicule... If you listen to his words, he's much different... It makes no sense.
Ressa[S]: ...I cannot believe--we cannot believe anything this demon says. Snap out of it Ku-ai! Here you are trusting the devil himself...
Ku-ai[S]: I don't trust him... I feel sorry for him.
Celebi: (The devil... What could have happened to earn such a title...?)
Fairy Soldier: Girls, clear a path! Kutzu is on his way!
[Slowly, the militia splits, revealing the brick road, which a snow white Kutzu armed with two lazer-weapons walks upon. His hair color and style remain the same, as well as his eyes. His feminine attire, unlike everyone else's is light violet and indigo. Most of his features remain exactly similar to the original Kutzu's.]
--K U T Z U [S]--
Kutzu[S]: [Walks to Ressa's side. He growls at the sight of Celebi. The growl becomes a questioning whimper at Ku-ai.] Ku-ai... Why...?
Celebi: Kutzu...
Kutzu[S]: I don't want to believe it... [Presses his paws against his head and shakes "no" at this scene. His paws cup over his eyes.]
Celebi: (This hatred is immensely powerful... I can barely stand it...)
Kutzu[S]: [He drops his arms.] Another Emanation... How could you...?
Ku-ai[S]: ...I'm uncertain myself... I had been urged to listen to such reasoning... And it worked.
Kutzu[S]: [Gasps.] Like... Really?! You can NOT be serious!
Ku-ai[S]: Kutzu, I know you feel the Detestation too, but something isn't right about Celebi.
Kutzu[S]: Nothing was ever right about him... [Glares at Celebi.]
Celebi: May I please tell you something, Kutzu...?
Kutzu[S]: I don't need to hear digity-squat from your face!
Celebi: Just hear me out... Have you ever been to Mt. Melody?
Kutzu[S]: What does that have to do with anything?!
Celebi: Have you?
Kutzu[S]: ...A couple times...
Celebi: Have you ever experienced an unusual feeling upon nearing the pinnacle?
Kutzu[S]: ...Yes... There's something otherworldly about that place.
Ressa[S]: I have comprehended the legends tied to Mt. Melody. It tells of an alternate world connected to this world by a bridge of riddle and song and... death.
Ku-ai[S]: ...Wait a moment... Everything... Ev-v-... [Turns slowly to Celebi.] Alternate world... Everything you said... It's true!!!
[Everyone gasps.]
Kutzu[S]: Oh my gosh!! I get it now!! You came from the other side! And that must make you...
Celebi: Thank you!! This is what I've been trying to tell everyone, but this rage was waaay too much! I'm not this cruel, sinister overlord!! I just want to get back to my Soren!
Kutzu[S]: But... if that's true, why do I feel the Detestation?
Celebi: Is that what it's called? I assumed it was the opposite of the Connection, which is my bond to the Eclipses.
Ku-ai[S]: Eclipses?
Celebi: They have the same role as you Emanations do.
Kutzu[S]: So you are totally a hero in your world!
Celebi: (I'm not a hero anymore... I'm sinking...) Yeah... And I need to get back to that world! It requires the help of two Emanations... Kutzu and Ku-ai... Please, I beg of you both! ...Help me out here.
Kutzu[S]: Hmm... Ok... But the anger is still strong... That's something I don't get...
Ku-ai[S]: Me neither...
Celebi: Same here... Hopefully it disperses.
...
[With everything cleared, or nearly cleared. Kutzu joins celebi and Ku-ai.] The two remain somewhat suspicious of Celebi's actions, just in case. Worried, the Fairies bid a temporary farewell to Kutzu and Ku-ai...]
...
Celebi: I'll get us there in the blink of an eye. (Athena... I'm ready to return.)
Athena: (Well done, Celebi...)
...
[The three vanish in the radiant blue spheres from earlier.]
...
...
...
~~Melody Summit [S]~~{Sync 2.]
[The three reappear...]
...
Celebi: ...[He glances around the area, seeking Athena. She is nowhere to be found, perhaps unconvinced that Emanations should be allowed to see a goddess.] (Athena?)
Athena: (I must watch over you three, for Emanations may be endangered by my presence... Tell them they must hold out and focus all of their wordly energy upon you.)
Celebi: [He turns to Kutzu and Ku-ai, who are becoming weakened by the mountain...] You guys! Hang on just a little longer... You have to focus your energy on me...
Ku-ai[S]: How... can we...?
Kutzu[S]: It's killing... us...
Celebi: You're under the watchful eye of a goddess... You'll be okay.
...
...
[The two drop to the ground; Kutzu all the way, Ku-ai to his knees.]
Celebi: Kutzu! Ku-ai! [Rushes to them and kneels down on one knee.] (Shoot, I'm never gonna... Huh...? What's...?) [He begins fading out...] (They trusted me... They did it!) ...You two...
...
[Ku-ai drops all the way.]
...
Celebi: I'll remember you as friends...not foes...
...
[Celebi fades away completely...]
...
...
...
Athena: [Reappears where Celebi had vanished.] ...[She smiles.] Well done, my children... Such a task... Celebi... [Looks to the sky.] It is the same Celebi everyone detests... It is...
