The Crybaby and the Butler
(Captain) and crew become acquainted with the monster artist Lunalu through an assignment. Upon discovering that her true passion lies in romantic art, they welcome her into the crew so that she can further her studies.
Vyrn: Whoa! It went that way, Lyria!
Lyria: I've got it! Umm, just need some more bait...
Vyrn: Hey! Hurry up, or it'll get away!
Lyria: It's getting away? Oh no! We're out of bait!
Vyrn: Aw heck... Lunalu, haven't you finished drawing yet?
Lunalu: Not yet.
Lyria: Ahh! Please don't run away yet!
It all began a few hours earlier when the crew visited Sierokarte for the lowdown on an assignment.
Sierokarte: I have an assignment for you! A friend of mine runs a company that publishes the most up-to-date illustrated monster guides.
Sierokarte: And they would like to have you assist the artist responsible for the monster drawings.
Vyrn: No problem! But what can we do to help?
Sierokarte: Your job will be to make sure she can comfortably observe and sketch the monster.
Lyria: She? So it's a girl?
Sierokarte: Indeed, her name is Lunalu. She's made quite a name for herself as a monster artist.
Sierokarte: Her pictures are said to be so vivid, they could jump right out from the page!
Sierokarte: Well then, I'll leave it for you to handle!
Having completed the assignment, the crew rests awhile in Lunalu's home nearby.
Lyria: Phew, that was harder than I expected. I'm glad you managed to get the picture though!
Lunalu: It's not finished yet. Now I need to do the coloring.
Lyria: Huh? Now? Shouldn't you get some rest first?
Lunalu: I want to finish right away, while the monster is still fresh in my mind.
Lyria: Whoa... such enthusiasm for your art! That's cool!
Lunalu: It's not that. I'm just trying to do my job efficiently. It has nothing to do with inspiration or anything.
Lyria: Oh, umm... I guess that makes sense.
Lyria: V-Vyrn? The scream came from that room!
Lunalu: My workroom? What's he doing in my workroom!
Lyria: A-are you all right? What in the skies happened...
Vyrn: I can't believe it... There's so many paintings!
Lyria: Huh? Well, she is an artist after all...
Lyria: Eek! There's so many naked men!
Vyrn: And look! This is even stranger! I didn't expect this from Lunalu—
Lunalu: So you saw...
Lyria: Ahh! L-Lunalu?
Lunalu: It's err... It's normal practice for artists to draw basic human bodies.
Lunalu: Now would you please leave? I'd hate for anything to get broken...
Vyrn: Get away from her, Lyria! She can't be normal with all these paintings of men killing each other!
Lunalu: What? No, it's not like that! They're just... hugging.
Lyria: Huh? Hugging?
Lunalu: Yes! Oh, this is so embarrassing.
Vyrn: Umm, so you're not dangerous?
Lunalu: Guhh, of course not.
Lunalu: Right now, I'm only known for drawing monsters. But I really want to be recognized for romantic art.
Lyria: Err... romantic art?
Lunalu: Knights in shining armor... princes from far-off lands... Don't you ever dream about such things?
Lunalu: Personal fantasies like that are captured very well in illustrated storybooks.
Lunalu: But as for what I'd want to create... I guess you'd call them romantic storybooks.
Vyrn: Romantic storybooks. How, uh... interesting.
Lunalu: Think what you want. I won't bother debating it.
Lyria: Hm, I've never seen anything like this before. Is it sold in shops?
Lunalu: No, it's more like a hobby of mine. I make each one personally and have nearby bookstores sell them for me.
Lunalu: But I haven't sold a single one yet.
Vyrn: Can't say I'm surprised. I imagine romantic drawings to be pretty, but yours are all scary.
Lunalu: It's just a habit of mine! My illustrative style and hobbies don't match!
Lunalu: But I get it... I know it's hopeless...
Lunalu: Well, maybe I'm better off just drawing monsters for the rest of my life...
Vyrn: Hey, don't get so beat up about it. There must be some way you could improve?
Lunalu: The best way to improve is to copy something else, preferably something of top quality.
Lunalu: But around here, works of great romantic beauty are hard to come by, so I've struggled to even get a hold of anything.
Lyria: Hm, what might there be for you to study from then?
Lyria: I know! Why don't you travel with us? I'm sure you could find all sorts of storybooks!
Lunalu: Huh? W-with all of you? Is that really okay?
Choose: Sure it's okay!
- Sure it's okay!
- Let's see if you improve.
Lunalu: Th-thank you. You sure are a strange bunch...Choose: Let's see if you improve.
Lunalu: Really? Well, I'd have to think about it...Continue 1
Vyrn: Heheh, though maybe you shouldn't show your work to the rest of the crew. We wouldn't want them getting too excited.
Lunalu: Amazing... To think that I'll have the chance to gather all kinds of romantic objects...
Lunalu: Is this a dream? If it is, I hope I don't wake up.
Lunalu: All right! Ah, my sealed evil eye just started throbbing!
Lyria: Are you okay? If your eye hurts, should we take you to a doctor?
Lunalu: Ah, no, it's fine. I just have a little dry eye is all.
And so, Lunalu joins the crew in order to gather and study romantic works of art.
During Lunalu's journey to master her craft, her imagination extends farther than the vast skies.
A Beauty on the Battlefield
The crew visits a book market, where Lunalu's eyes light up after discovering a book by an artist she admires. Vyrn suggests that they find the artist to ask for tips to improve Lunalu's craft.
The crew stops by an island that happens to have a book market. Lunalu excitedly paces around searching for romantic art books.
Vyrn: Hey, hey! Are you sure this is a guy? I mean, look at those eyelashes!
Lunalu: I'm sure. (Whoa, the finish on this piece is incredible!)
Lyria: Look at this one! It seems really popular!
Lunalu: It sure is. (This one's about Prince Popol! Perfect!)
Vyrn: Heheh. Isn't this great, Lunalu? There's so much more than I thought there'd be!
Lunalu: Indeed. I feel like I could live here. (It's like a treasure trove! Heehee!)
Lyria: What's wrong? Don't you have enough stuff to start your studies?
Lunalu: Ah, no. That's not it.
Lunalu: All of this stuff is so good, I'm feeling less confident than ever.
Vyrn: Hey, don't give up just yet! You're becoming a romantic artist at the end of all this!
Lunalu: I-I know! It's just that the difference in quality is so high...
Lunalu: Whoa! Th-that's...
Shop Assistant: Welcome! That's the last copy we have in stock. It's supposed to be super rare.
Lunalu: I knew it! It's A Beauty on the Battlefield!
Lyria: Um, have you read it before?
Lunalu: Ah, what fate... This is the very book that awoke me to the world of romantic art!
Lunalu: How many years has it been... I suppose it made the rounds among other collectors and ended up on my island by chance.
Lunalu: Reading it was a dream. The people seemed to shine through the pages.
Lunalu: But when my parents found it, they confiscated it...
Vyrn: I see... Hey! I've got an idea!
Vyrn: Hey, mister! Do you know if the person who drew this lives on the island?
Shop Assistant: Yes, I believe so. He hasn't brought in any new works lately though.
Vyrn: All right! Let's go ask if he'll help you improve!
Lunalu: R-really? But what about our own journey? I'd hate to be any trouble.
Lyria: Oh, it's fine!
Don't you want to meet him?
Lunalu: Y-yeah... Definitely. Chances like this don't come often...
Lunalu: Okay, let's go pay this artist a visit!
A Beauty on the Battlefield: Scene 2
The crew visits the artist's house, only to be told by a rugged man that the artist has already moved. Just as Lunalu turns away dejectedly, they hear a woman scream nearby.
(Captain) and crew fend off monsters while heading toward the artist's house. Finally they are standing before its door.
Lunalu: Um, is it really okay to just show up like this?
Lunalu: Though this would be the first time for me to meet a fellow artist... What if we really hit it off?
Lunalu: Maybe even become friends?
Lunalu: No, no, no. Let's not get ahead of ourselves, Lunalu.
Vyrn: Wait, is someone coming?
Rugged Man: Wh-what are all of you doing here? What do you want?
Vyrn: Huh? Oh, umm, we...
Lyria: Err, this isn't how I imagined the artist Lunalu mentioned...
Rugged Man: Tch, state your business or scram!
Vyrn: We're looking for an artist's house. We heard it was here, but...
Rugged Man: Oh? Yeah, I've heard the same. I think he moved a long time ago though.
Lyria: Oh... Do you happen to know where he went?
Rugged Man: No idea. Now if you don't mind, I have work to get back to.
Lunalu: Ah, sorry to bother you. Thanks anyway.
Lyria: Aww, I'm sorry, Lunalu...
Lunalu: Sigh... I was starting to think it was all going too well anyway.
Woman's Voice: Aaah!
Vyrn: Whoa! What the heck was that?
Rugged Man: Oh no... That was my wife! Did she run into a monster?
Lyria: C'mon, (Captain)! We have to help them!
A Beauty on the Battlefield: Scene 3
The rugged man thanks the crew for saving the woman, who turned out to be his wife. He reveals himself as the artist Lunalu has been searching for and offers to teach her everything he knows.
The crew defeats the monster, saving the rugged man's wife. He escorts (Captain) and company to his home.
Wife: Thank you so much. If you all weren't here, I'd...
Lunalu: Don't mention it. Saving you was my destiny, hehe.
Rugged Man: Wha... I know that quote...
Lunalu: Well then, we'll be on our way. Time to go, everyone.
Rugged Man: ...
Rugged Man: Hey, wait! The artist you're searching for... is me...
Lunalu: Ah! You're the author of A Beauty on the Battlefield!
Vyrn: No way! This guy's the great romance artist?
Lyria: Umm... so why didn't you say anything before?
Rugged Man: Apologies for that... A long time ago, I hid my artistic works from my wife. But she found out one day.
Rugged Man: That day I hung up my brush for good. I was embarrassed—these were not things a good husband should be making.
Lunalu: So that's what happened...
Lunalu: I know the feeling. My parents got angry at me before for drawing this kind of stuff.
Lunalu: But I just want you to know: your art saved me; it gave me new life.
Rugged Man: Huh?
Lunalu: I wasn't very good at studying or sports or anything... I was rebellious and... didn't really enjoy life.
Lunalu: That's when I found your book. For the first time I felt like I had a dream, a purpose...
Lunalu: I might still be a long way off, but... I want to become a fantastic artist like you were.
Lunalu: That's why I really wanted to say... thank you so much.
Rugged Man: That's... I had no idea... So you're a romantic artist too?
Vyrn: Yeah, that's right! We came to see if you had any tips to improve her storybooks...
Lyria: We did, but understanding your situation now—
Wife: I'm so sorry! I was wrong the whole time!
Rugged Man: Huh? Oh, umm...
Wife: I mean, I... I know your art is a little unusual, but I never imagined it could have such a positive effect on people...
Wife: Please create whatever art you want, dearie. Don't worry about what others might say! You will always have my support from now on!
Rugged Man: Th-thank you... I can't believe this! I don't deserve you, honey!
Rugged Man: I owe all of you my thanks too. Tricks to improve? If you want, I'll teach you everything I know!
Lunalu: R-really? I'm not dreaming? Thank you so much!
Vyrn: Hooray! Maybe now your stuff won't be so scary!
Lyria: Heehee, isn't this great, Lunalu!
Lunalu: My... My evil eye is...
Lunalu seizes the invaluable opportunity to grow as an artist.
With his help her art improves drastically, and she continues travelling with the crew to further hone her craft.
Lunalu grows frustrated when she fails to perfectly capture Siegfried's sublime form in a piece of art. But with his words of encouragement, Lunalu quickly regains confidence and completes what she considers to be her magnum opus.
One day Lunalu sets her heart on capturing the form of a certain man.
Siegfried: I hope to make myself useful on the crew, (Captain).
Lyria: Yay! It's a pleasure to have you, Siegfried! I feel like things will go by so much more smoothly with you around!
(Captain) and company welcome Siegfried into the crew.
Unbeknownst to all a shadowy figure watches from a distance.
Lunalu: (Eep! I, I can't believe my eyes! My knight in shining armor is standing right there!)
Lunalu: (A dignified knight keeping an enigmatical air of mystery by veiling his face underneath that decadent armor!)
Lunalu: (Teehee... What mysteries that helmet could be concealing!)
Lunalu: (Pant... Wheeze... I... Aagh, this is too much! I can't stop fantasizing about the possibilities! Hey, get back to your senses, Lunalu!)
Siegfried: You there. In the shadows.
Lunalu: Eek! I've been spotted!
Vyrn: Hm, you see something there? Wait, Lunalu? Whatcha doing out here?
Lunalu: I... I was just looking for my chance to enter the conversation.
Lyria: I guess I should introduce you! This here is Lunalu and she does fantastic artwork!
Vyrn: Yeah, she totally knocks it out of the park when it comes to monster drawings! But I heard she actually prefers romance nov—
Lunalu: Ack! Aiiee! Eeep!
No! Stop right there!
Vyrn: Whoa! No need to scream, is there?
Lunalu: No means no! Say another word and I'll never forgive you!
Siegfried: Sigh... Your crew's as lively as ever, (Captain).
Choose: Does that bother you?
- Does that bother you?
- That's what makes it so fun!
Siegfried: Not at all. On the contrary seeing how much fun everyone's having only shows what a great captain you are.Choose: That's what makes it so fun!
Siegfried: Haha, I figured you'd say that. Everyone I've met on the crew before joining up shares that same look of contentment on their faces.Continue 1
Lunalu: (Aah... The sharp contrast his soft-spoken voice makes against the stark edges of his armor! He may hide his face, but I can almost sense the oh-so tender smile lying within!)
Vyrn: Hey, hey, Lunalu! What's with the staring?
Lunalu: Ah! No, it's nothing...
Lunalu: (And revelation strikes! My mind seethes with visions of him in every pose conceivable! I must capture his magnificent form while my imagination is running wild!)
Lunalu clenches her fists in determination.
Lunalu: (My chance is now! I will not let such rare perfection idly slip past me!)
Siegfried: Is everything okay? Something stuck to my face?
Lunalu: Er, umm... If you don't mind, I'd be so happy if you could please pose for my drawing!
Lunalu: I can draw monsters pretty well, but when it comes to people, I tend to stumble a lot...
Lunalu: And when I saw you, that's when it hit! You embody the perfect bodily form that I've always wanted to capture on my canvas!
Siegfried: Hm, I see where you're coming from now. Though I'm sorry to say I don't think I'd be of much help.
Siegfried: I believe there are many aboard the ship who would better serve your artistic needs.
Lunalu: No, it must be you! Please! If you will give me permission to sketch your form from even a distance away, that would be more than enough!
Faced with such a desperate Lunalu, Siegfried pauses for a moment of contemplation.
Very well, it'd be rather boorish of me to turn down such an earnest request, so do what you must.
Lunalu: Ah! Thank you so much!
With Siegfried's approval at last, Lunalu begins observing him from the shadows the day after.
She tightly grips her well-worn sketchbook and brush pen, intent to capture every fine detail of Siegfried.
Lyria: Oh, Siegfried! We're heading out to deal with some monsters soon. Would you like to come along?
Siegfried: Sure, count me in. I'll help you with your training on the way there, (Captain).
Vyrn: Hehe, lucky you, (Captain)! You were always talking about how you'd love to train with Siegfried!
Lyria: Yeah! Seeing (Captain) happy makes me happy too!
Lunalu: (Ah! Could it be that Siegfried knew (Captain) was hesitating and stepped up to make the offer himself?)
Lunalu: (If that's true, it's not fair! But, oh, the gentle compassion he exudes is quite something to behold!)
Lunalu furiously sketches away as she stares at (Captain) and company with wide-open eyes.
Vyrn: Hey, Lyria...
Lyria: Shh! No, Vyrn! We shouldn't disrupt Lunalu when she's so focused!
Vyrn: I know, but...
The way Lunalu nods, giggles, and exaggeratedly stretches out her arms toward the skies at Siegfried's every little gesture makes her look alarmingly suspicious.
Other crew members watch Lunalu with apprehension, but she pays no heed to them and continues her fine brush strokes.
Although at first weary of the frequent and curious glances being cast at him, Siegfried quickly becomes accustomed to it.
Ecstatic at Siegfried having let down his guard, Lunalu writhes in glorious excitement.
Lyria: Teehee, Lunalu, you seem to be having so much fun lately. I hope your sketch is coming along all right.
Lunalu: I suppose you could say I've never drawn anything this satisfying.
Lunalu: What's more, I've become much better at drawing things off the top of my head without an actual model in front of me.
Lunalu: I have to say, I've never improved this fast!
Vyrn: Glad to hear it! Still have to admit I'm a bit creeped out by how you follow Siegfried from the shadows his every waking moment though...
Lunalu: Hey, who are you calling creepy? I prefer the term enthusiastic!
Lunalu looks out the window to see heavy drops of water pelting against the glass pane.
Lyria jumps to her feet at the sudden torrential rains.
Lyria: Oh no! (Captain) and Siegfried are training on deck right now!
Lunalu: The two of them deadlocked in battle while drenched in the rain... I must capture this moment for eternity's sake!
Vyrn: Oi! Lunalu! You're gonna be soaking wet if you—
Siegfried: Forgive me. Are you okay?
Lunalu: Ngh... It was just a little bump, so I'll be fine—Eek!
Siegfried: Are you hurt anywhere? Do let me know.
Lunalu: Ah, erm, your head... I mean... your face...
Lunalu: (What treachery is this! To hide those stunningly good looks behind that helmet... Oh! Inspiration is striking!)
Siegfried: Hm? Oh, this? (Captain) suggested I take off my helmet when I'm on the Grandcypher.
Siegfried: So I decided to try it out for a day. Does something seem off about me?
Lunalu: Oh no, I'm just... a bit surprised. (Yiiee! Thank you, thank you, thank you so much, (Captain)!)
Lyria: Umm, why don't you two get changed? Wouldn't want to catch a cold now.
Lunalu: H-huh? (I can envision majestic, bulging pecs and finely chiseled abs hidden under unassuming armor... Uugh! Agh! Yes!)
Lyria: Eeek! What's wrong, Lunalu?
Lunalu: Am I dreaming? Aha... Ahaha... Of course... I have to be...
Lyria: Yikes! Lunalu, pull yourself together!
Lunalu: Mm... Mmrgh... Hm? Where am I?
Lunalu: Aah, right. I was so excited about Siegfried getting changed and then...
Lunalu looks around the room and finally comes to grips with the situation.
Lunalu: Teehee, I got to see his heavenly face up close! Agh, I can die happy now! I've never seen anything more perfect!
Lunalu: Oh, can't be fantasizing all day long! I'd better sketch out this memory while it's still fresh in my mind!
Lunalu grabs her brush pen and tries to capture the vivid image in her mind, but her hand immediately falls still.
Lunalu: Hm, this doesn't look right.
Lunalu: Manly yet delicate, equal parts gruff and gentleman...
Lunalu: Scribble, scribble... Guah! This isn't working! I can't get it down on paper!
Lunalu: Scribble, scribble... Argh! No! I want to recreate that miraculous form, but this is utterly devoid of the heavenly aura the man in the flesh exudes!
Lunalu frantically moves from one sketch to another, scrapping her work in each iteration. After the umpteenth time, she listlessly drops the brush pen.
Lunalu: Sigh... Artistic compositions and expressions come to me so naturally, so why do I feel like a fish out of water here?
Devoid of any strength, Lunalu crumbles to the ground and scatters her sketches all over the room when a single one catches her eye.
It was an imaginary recreation of Siegfried's face up close that she managed to whip up the other day.
Lunalu: Humph, what's with this? The real thing is so much closer to perfection.
Lunalu: I can't believe I drew this—it's awful.
Lunalu lets out a dreary laugh as she gazes at each of the sketches spread all over the floor.
Lunalu: So many wild fantasies bursting through my mind, yet I'm an epic failure when it comes to getting them down on paper. Sigh...
Lunalu: I'm sure it's the same with monsters... I mean, I see that as work more than a passion project...
Lunalu: So I never really tried to portray the hidden beauty lying in them.
Lunalu: Aah... I fail hard as a romance artist, and I'd hardly qualify as a monster artist...
Though overtaken by a negative spiral of emotion, Lunalu musters up just enough strength to grab her brush pen.
Vyrn: Oi, Lunalu! Everything okay now?
Siegfried: I'm coming in.
Lunalu: Uwaagh! Oh, yes! Please come in!
Siegfried: Hm, are you all better now? We were all so worried when you suddenly collapsed.
Lunalu: Oh yeah, I feel great now! Couldn't be better in fact! For sure! Definitely!
Lyria: Thank goodness! This might sound surprising, but I've never seen Siegfried more worried.
Siegfried: Even the smallest of injuries can be devastating if left untreated.
Lunalu: Oh, I'm so sorry for making you worry!
Vyrn: Hey, what's this?
Whoa! Lyria, come take a look!
Lyria: Vyrn! It's not nice to fish around in Lunalu's belongings!
Vyrn: This is amazing! Hey, hey, Siegfried! You're the star in every one of these drawings!
Lunalu: Eek! S-stop that! No!
Siegfried: Ooh, color me surprised. I can tell you really have a flair for the creative, Lunalu.
Lunalu: Ah... Ugh... I'm... not really that good.
Siegfried: Why do you say that? These look spectacular to me.
Lunalu: But they're far from perfect. It doesn't matter how much time I spend drawing—perfection is always miles ahead of me. I'm just hopeless...
Lunalu: In fact the more I draw and compare my art to reality, I realize that I fail even as a monster artist...
Lunalu: I can't help but wonder: why am I even drawing things in the first place?
Vyrn: You're too hard on yourself, Lunalu! I think everyone would agree that your monster drawings are absolutely breathtaking!
Lyria: Of course! And your drawings of Siegfried are just as good!
Vyrn: No argument there! To be honest I was at first a bit creeped out by how you were following Siegfried everywhere... but now I see that it was all for the sake of good art!
Lyria: So please don't call yourself a failure! The world would be a much sadder place without your wonderful art, Lunalu!
Lunalu: But... But no matter how hard I try, perfection is never within my grasp!
Lunalu: It doesn't matter how much effort I put into polishing my artistic skills! I lack the creative instinct to truly express myself, and that's what matters most!
Siegfried: Hmm... It's never smooth sailing for someone starting out. I learned that the hard way with the sword, and I imagine it's no different with a brush.
Siegfried: But no matter how hard the going gets, no matter how far away you are from utter perfection, and no matter how much you have to endure...
Siegfried: I guarantee you that all the blood, sweat, and tears you've put in so far have not gone to waste. I hope you can at least believe that much.
Lunalu: Oh! (Where have I heard this before...)
Lunalu: (Ah yes, it's all coming back now... Chapter two of Popol Saga! This is one of the most quoted lines!)
Lunalu: (Mikhail is able to keep trying and get past his slump thanks to these words of encouragement from Popol.)
Lunalu: (That's right, Lunalu! You're no different from Mikhail right now! You're the budding flower just waiting to blossom into a genius!)
Lunalu: Erm, thank you! You've just helped me remember something very important!
Lunalu: Perfection has never been within my grasp! What really matters is seeing things through to the end!
Lunalu: I won't give up! I think I can faithfully put onto paper the scenery in my head now!
Siegfried: Seems like you just blew past a bad spell.
Lunalu: That's right! (Captain), I need some time alone in my room; can you keep people from coming in for a while?
Lyria: Wow, what's with the sudden change of heart, Lunalu?
Lunalu: I want the way I feel this very moment, the imagery in my mind, to last forever in a picture-perfect drawing!
Vyrn: We'll do what we can to help! Right, (Captain)?
Surprised at the level of passion and enthusiasm coming from the usually nonchalant Lunalu, (Captain) nods deeply.
Lunalu retreats to her room to complete the drawing.
Lyria later makes a few visits to bring Lunalu food, but the door never opens.
A few days later.
Lyria: Hmm, I hope Lunalu's okay... I don't think she's been eating much.
Siegfried: But she is responding when you knock, right? That's a sure sign she's okay.
Vyrn: Still has me worried though...
Lunalu: Teeheehee... At long last... I've done it!
Phew, it's just Lunalu! Hey, don't scare us like that!
Lunalu, who spent the past few days cooped up in her room, appears ghastly pale.
Her lack of sleep is evident in the dark shadows that have formed below her eyes, and her fingertips are stained with ink.
Exhausted she may be, but the expression on her face is one of ineffable joy as she gloats of her extraordinary accomplishment.
Lunalu: Mwahaha... Feast your eyes on my masterpiece... I've captured the moment so perfectly...
Vyrn: Ooh, lemme see...
By my apple!
Lyria: W-wow! This is incredible! Take a look at this, Siegfried!
Siegfried: Mhm... The pose is completely different from what I saw a few days ago. I can tell you really poured your heart and soul into it.
The portrait of Siegfried that Lunalu presented to the crew was a huge departure from all her previous sketches of the dashing knight.
Lunalu: This is the first time I've ever drawn anything so close to what I have in mind. This is to me a true work of art.
Vyrn: Yeah, I don't think I've ever been so blown away by a piece of artwork. I'm not so sure the real Siegfried looks that shiny though.
Lyria: You think so? But Siegfried looks sooo cool in it! I'm almost getting butterflies in my stomach just looking at it!
Lunalu: Erm, I want you to have this...
Siegfried: For me?
Lunalu: I was on the brink of giving up my dream. But you made me realize what's really important, so... This is just to say thanks. Sorry if it's a bother...
Siegfried: Haha, you're merely reaping the fruits of your labor, Lunalu. And a gift from you being a bother? Never! I might even hang this on my wall!
Lunalu: Ah... Aah...
Lunalu: Teehee... I, I got to see your precious smile... Aaah! Thank you so—
Lyria: Yikes! Lunalu fainted again!
Vyrn: Oh boy, is she gonna be alright? Hm, looks like she just fell into a nap. Let's leave her be for now.
Siegfried: Right, she definitely needs the rest. I'll carry her to her room.
Vyrn: Sure. I've gotta say though: I don't think I've ever seen anyone sleep with a grin that big on their face.
All it took for Lunalu to turn bright red and suddenly collapse was a brief flash of Siegfried's tender smile.
Lunalu keeps on her gigantic grin throughout the night as her mind drifts to the land of dreams.
