  1. [21:17:54] <CielPhantomhive> Ion.
  2. [21:17:55] <CielPhantomhive> Ion...
  3. [21:17:56] <CielPhantomhive> Ion!
  4. [21:18:01] <CielPhantomhive> Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
  5. [21:18:12] <CielPhantomhive> I am just predicting my reaction there.
  6. [21:18:23] <CielPhantomhive> I... I have still yet to gather the heart  to play out the scene...
  7. [21:18:45] <CielPhantomhive> Onee-san...
  8. [21:18:46] <CielPhantomhive> Let....
  9. [21:18:51] <CielPhantomhive> Let us do this together.
  10. [21:21:08] <Giantree> Best of luck, imoutochan
  11. [21:21:35] <CielPhantomhive> Let us do this together onee-san.
  12. [21:21:41] <CielPhantomhive> I... I cannot do this on my own...
  13. [21:22:04] <Giantree> I'm here for you.
  14. [21:28:29] <CielPhantomhive> Buffing my morale by "singing" along to the opening sequence.
  15. [21:29:05] <Giantree> Is this Ion dying or is it Sync dying?
  16. [21:29:23] <CielPhantomhive> Ion dying. The final sequence in Mount Zaleho.
  17. [21:29:29] <Giantree> Just kidding, they're both Ion.  Ho ho ho!
  18. [21:30:16] <CielPhantomhive> :<
  19. [21:30:45] <Giantree> Really though, it's hard to have proper suspension of disbelief during that scene due to poor JRPG animation.
  20. [21:31:04] <Giantree> At least Asch's death made me consistently cry bitch tears.
  21. [21:37:26] <CielPhantomhive> Oh, hold on, hold on, hold on. This was the Seventh Fonstone? It was here all along, even during the first trip to Mount Zaleho? How come nobody noticed it?
  22. [21:37:33] <CielPhantomhive> Also... Ion sounds so... weary... ;_;
  23. [21:38:00] <CielPhantomhive> He sounds so... drained, emotionless, and lifeless...
  24. [21:38:03] <CielPhantomhive> It is truly wracking me.
  25. [21:38:46] <CielPhantomhive> >Ion: "After inflicting atrocities upon the villages in their wake, the army shall surround the fortress capital."
  26. [21:39:06] <CielPhantomhive> He says the latter part all in one breath, and he can audibly be heard expending that breath.
  27. [21:39:08] <CielPhantomhive> ;_;
  28. [21:39:30] <CielPhantomhive> Even the next line, he sounds so tired...
  29. [21:40:39] <CielPhantomhive> >Ion: "The plague born thence shall become a new poison unto humanity, killing all within its reach."
  30. [21:40:47] <CielPhantomhive> He sounds so... exhausted, and concerned, and worried... :<
  31. [21:41:04] <CielPhantomhive> Also, the party is right there. Why are they not rushing in and saving him?
  32. [21:41:44] <CielPhantomhive> >Ion: "Kimlasca shall enjoy decades of prosperity as the plague of Malkuth grows."
  33. [21:41:56] <CielPhantomhive> He says this as, "gro-ohs..."
  34. [21:41:58] <CielPhantomhive> It is so sad...
  35. [21:42:37] <CielPhantomhive> >Ion: "Ultimately, the plague will be brought into the Kimlascan kingdom by a single man."
  36. [21:42:51] <CielPhantomhive> And then someone tossed a Bottle onto him, curing him and averting disaster.
  37. [21:46:46] <CielPhantomhive> Hold on.
  38. [21:47:04] <CielPhantomhive> >"The light of the sacred flame shall approach a Kimlascan city of fon machines, seeking a way to purify the taint."
  39. [21:47:28] <CielPhantomhive> But the light of the sacred flame was supposed to be destroyed at Akzeriuth, as per the Score.
  40. [21:47:37] <CielPhantomhive> Or is this some "the old Luke died that day" thing?
  41. [21:48:29] <xXx_SUPA_KAWAII_OAK_333333_xXx> Pretty sure it is, actually.
  42. [21:48:45] <CielPhantomhive> Well... it says "destroyed," not "died."
  43. [21:48:57] <CielPhantomhive> That is sufficient ambiguity.
  44. [21:49:36] <CielPhantomhive> Alternatively, Asch was supposed to die at Akzeriuth, and then his replica was supposed to go to Belkend or Sheridan.
  45. [21:49:38] <CielPhantomhive> Or vice versa.
  46. [21:51:36] <CielPhantomhive> >Luke: "Ion! Are you okay?!"
  47. [21:51:37] <CielPhantomhive> Oh no...
  48. [21:51:39] <CielPhantomhive> Ion...
  49. [21:51:40] <CielPhantomhive> Ion.
  50. [21:51:42] <CielPhantomhive> Please do not die...
  51. [21:56:42] <CielPhantomhive> >Ion: "Luke... That was my reading of the Score for you..."
  52. [21:56:43] <CielPhantomhive> ;_;

  55. [22:06:08] <CielPhantomhive> Also, why are all of the quotation marks in this game right quotation marks?
  56. [22:06:23] <Giantree> Japan
  57. [22:07:31] <CielPhantomhive> You know.
  58. [22:07:46] <CielPhantomhive> There should really be a choice to swap Anise for Arietta shortly after this point.
  59. [22:08:01] <CielPhantomhive> Consider that the party has every reason to, and that Arietta even tipped them off to Ion's kidnapping.
  60. [22:08:44] <CielPhantomhive> Arietta's grudge is with Anise. She is still friendly to the rest of the party. If, at the Cheagle Woods, they just dumped Anise and took Arietta, everything would work out.
  61. [22:11:14] <CielPhantomhive> Anise... how could you?
  62. [22:11:54] <CielPhantomhive> It is also infuriating on the level of, "Anise, why did you not just ask?"
  63. [22:12:40] <CielPhantomhive> My only complaint is that it started to be foreshadowed only extremely recently.
  64. [22:13:10] <CielPhantomhive> It was really as though Anise's player asked the GM to make it a subplot only shortly before it happened, rather than Anise's player having planned it out from the beginning.
  65.  
  66. [22:34:18] <CielPhantomhive> Oh, Ion...
  67. [22:34:29] <CielPhantomhive> I am actually tearing up now.
  68. [22:34:49] <CielPhantomhive> And... and somehow... I know that Ion is happy to have been of use, so...
  69. [22:34:55] <CielPhantomhive> So I know that he is happy.
  70. [22:35:02] <CielPhantomhive> That is why I am smiling a little too...
  71. [22:35:24] <CielPhantomhive> >Ion: "A signle path... among your many possible futures..."
  72. [22:35:26] <CielPhantomhive> Ion ;_;
  73. [22:35:44] <CielPhantomhive> >Ion: "I know you don't depend on others... but this was the only way I could help you."
  74. [22:35:49] <CielPhantomhive> Ion... thank you. Thank you for everything, Ion.
  75. [22:37:31] <CielPhantomhive> >Luke: "Shut up! You've helped us out a million times! And you'll keep helping..."
  76. [22:37:32] <CielPhantomhive> >Ion: "... Luke. Don't look at me like that. There are plenty of replacements for me..."
  77. [22:37:33] <CielPhantomhive> Ion...
  78. [22:37:34] <CielPhantomhive> ;_;
  79. [22:37:39] <CielPhantomhive> The tears are welling up even more...
  80. [22:37:51] <CielPhantomhive> Ion... you are not just a replica.
  81. [22:38:05] <CielPhantomhive> For me, for yourself, for Luke, and for Anise... you are original. You are original, Ion.
  82. [22:39:00] <CielPhantomhive> >Ion: "I will... take the miasma from your body into my own."
  83. [22:39:06] <CielPhantomhive> So... was he going to die anyway...?
  84. [22:39:43] <CielPhantomhive> >Ion: "Don't you see...? This way... Tear is... safe."
  85. [22:39:46] <CielPhantomhive> Ion... please do not die.
  86. [22:39:47] <CielPhantomhive> Please.
  87. [22:39:49] <CielPhantomhive> Please...
  88. [22:39:50] <CielPhantomhive> Please...
  89. [22:39:52] <CielPhantomhive> Ion...
  90. [22:39:54] <CielPhantomhive> ;_;
  91. [22:40:28] <CielPhantomhive> >Anise: "Ion..."
  92. [22:40:28] <CielPhantomhive> No.
  93. [22:40:29] <CielPhantomhive> Anise.
  94. [22:40:34] <CielPhantomhive> You stay out of this, traitor.
  95. [22:40:54] <CielPhantomhive> >Ion: "You don't have to... watch over me... any more... Anise..."
  96. [22:40:57] <CielPhantomhive> Ion, please!
  97. [22:40:58] <CielPhantomhive> Ion...
  98. [22:40:59] <CielPhantomhive> ;_;
  99. [22:42:16] <CielPhantomhive> >Anise: "I'm so sorry, Ion! I... I..."
  100. [22:42:19] <CielPhantomhive> Anise.
  101. [22:42:20] <CielPhantomhive> No.
  102. [22:42:26] <xXx_SUPA_KAWAII_OAK_333333_xXx> mad
  103. [22:42:26] <CielPhantomhive> You will never be forgiven.
  104. [22:42:47] <CielPhantomhive> >Ion: "Thank you... for everything... My most... cherished..."
  105. [22:43:00] <CielPhantomhive> But... if Ion wishes to forgive you, as... as you two were lovers, then...
  106. [22:43:04] <CielPhantomhive> I will have to forgive you too, Anise.
  107. [22:43:07] <CielPhantomhive> For Ion.
  108. [22:43:09] <CielPhantomhive> For Ion...
  109. [22:43:10] <CielPhantomhive> ;_;
  110. [22:43:23] <CielPhantomhive> Ion has slumped to the ground.
  111. [22:43:25] <CielPhantomhive> Ion.
  112. [22:43:27] <CielPhantomhive> Ion.

  135. [22:43:50] <CielPhantomhive> Ion...
  136. [22:43:51] <CielPhantomhive> ;_;
  137. [22:44:27] <CielPhantomhive> Ion and his clothing have dissolved into the fon belt.
  138. [22:44:38] <CielPhantomhive> He should have left his clothes behind, at least... for Florian...
  139. [22:44:58] <CielPhantomhive> >Mohs: "Humph. The best replica of the bunch, and even he couldn't read the Score properly..."
  140. [22:45:12] <xXx_SUPA_KAWAII_OAK_333333_xXx> Did... was that the sound of you crying on your keyboard?
  141. [22:45:13] <CielPhantomhive> My internal rage towards Mohs is not unlike the volcano the party is currently in.
  142. [22:45:19] <CielPhantomhive> Yes.
  143. [22:46:45] <CielPhantomhive> Why... why must they feel so threatened by three civilian replicas with swords...
  144. [22:47:32] <CielPhantomhive> >Jade: "We can investigate this later. For now, let's escort Anise's parents to Daath..."
  145. [22:47:39] <CielPhantomhive> Right... without... grrrrr... Anise...
  146. [22:47:39] <CielPhantomhive> No.
  147. [22:47:43] <CielPhantomhive> Ion forgave her.
  148. [22:47:45] <CielPhantomhive> I should too.
  149. [22:48:13] <CielPhantomhive> Welp. Arietta is here...
  150. [22:48:15] <CielPhantomhive> Drama incoming.
  151. [22:48:24] <xXx_SUPA_KAWAII_OAK_333333_xXx> I forgave Anise when I realized I'd- oh yeah, she dies btw
  152. [22:48:39] <CielPhantomhive> I know.
  153. [22:48:45] <CielPhantomhive> Arietta just gave Anise a hard slap.
  154. [22:48:55] <CielPhantomhive> Anise deserved it.
  155. [22:49:17] <CielPhantomhive> >Arietta: "... You killed him! Anise, you killed Ion!"
  156. [22:49:20] <CielPhantomhive> How did Arietta know?
  157. [22:49:28] <xXx_SUPA_KAWAII_OAK_333333_xXx> Plothole.
  158. [22:51:04] <CielPhantomhive> >Anise: "Papa, be quiet! Yeah, I did. Want to make something of it, Gloomietta?!"
