Scenario:Arthur - Boundless Sky
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
While the others who passed return to their hometowns in preparation for their lives as knights, Arthur and Mordred decide to remain in the capital—so as not to trouble the orphanage with a celebration. They also get a chance to check out the Grandcypher before the crew departs.
This year's application process for the Order of the White Dragons has finally come to an end.
Arthur and Mordred have both passed the exam, officially making them knights of the order.
Lyria: Yay! Congratulations, you two!
Arthur: Thaaank you, milady!
Arthur: I've gotta say—that test put up quite the fight, but in the end we both came out victorious.
Mordred: Heh, was there ever any doubt?
Vyrn: Hey, there sure is a lot of hustle and bustle going on over there with the others who passed...
Vyrn: They look pretty busy! Is it really all right for you two to be celebratin' already?
Arthur: Oh, everyone's probably packing their bags for home.
Lyria: But they all just passed... Why leave so soon?
Arthur: Successful applicants get thirty days and a small allowance from the order to prepare before starting their new lives.
Vyrn: I gotcha. So these fellas are heading back home to see their families, huh?
Lyria: Oh, does that mean you two are also going home?
Mordred: Nope. But it's not a big deal though.
Mordred: Besides, we wouldn't wanna go soft right before it's time to toughen up!
Lyria: I see...
Arthur: Yeah, it's fine! I've sent them a letter with the good news already.
Vyrn: Well... I guess that should do it, huh?
Arthur: If we went home, it'd cause a huge commotion for sure—they'd probably throw us a silly party and everything...
However, Arthur's offhand comment only further perplexes Vyrn.
Vyrn: Huh? That sounds like fun—you don't wanna party?
Arthur: Yes, of course! After all, this is an occasion to celebrate.
Arthur: Our orphanage doesn't have that kind of money to spare—we'd just be a burden in the end.
Mordred: And that's the way it is. We've gotta keep our priorities in check.
Lyria: Hehe, you guys really care for them, huh?
Mordred: It's not that, exactly.
Mordred: Besides, I vowed to never return until I became captain!
Arthur: What! Mordred, are you serious?
Arthur: Did you tell the sister? I didn't hear anything about this!
Mordred: H-hey, take it easy!
Mordred shoves Arthur off and dusts off his shoulders.
Mordred: Cool it! I wasn't actually serious. But I am serious about becoming captain—aren't you as well?
Arthur hesitates for a moment, but the resolve is clear in his eyes.
Arthur: Yeah, you're right. Becoming captain of the order is definitely easier said than done.
Arthur: And if things get serious, going home may not actually be an option for us.
Arthur: But if the sister or little ones back home were in danger, I'd go back to protect them.
Mordred: Me too... But only after becoming captain, of course!
Arthur: Hey! No fair, Mordred! Besides, I'm the one who's gonna become captain!
(Captain) and company can't help but smile while listening to the two rap back and forth.
Lyria: Hehe, you two are really good friends!
Vyrn: But still, thirty days is a lot of time... Without anyone else around, won't you guys get bored?
Mordred: Bored? Ha! As long as the two of us are here, we can always practice our swordsmanship!
Arthur: Not to mention that we haven't seen much of the capital yet.
Mordred: Oh yeah! We gotta make sure to take in the sights while we can!
Arthur: By the way... Does this mean you'll be leaving soon, (Captain)?
Vyrn: Yeah... The rest of the crew's still waiting on the ship, so we can't stick around for too long.
Arthur: A ship... The Grandcypher, was it?
Lyria: Yep! That's right!
Arthur: Wow, a real airship... What's it look like? I bet it's huge, isn't it?
Lyria: Oh, um... Are you interested in airships?
Arthur: Yeah! We've never been on one before!
Vyrn: How about we take you guys for a ride then?
Arthur: Really! Do you mean it?
Vyrn: Of course! Right, (Captain)?
Choose: Yeah, just keep it down.
Mordred: We're not children, you know.
Lyria: O-of course... You're both knights now, after all!
Choose: I'll show you around myself!
Arthur: You hear that, Mordred? We're gonna ride on a real airship!
Mordred: I heard! Now simmer down already... We're not children anymore, you know.Continue 1
Vyrn: All right, it's settled then—you're both coming along for a ride!
Arthur's excitement can be heard across the deck of the Grandcypher as it majestically soars through the sky.
Arthur: A real airship! I can't believe it!
Mordred: It's... incredible!
Unlike Arthur, Mordred tries to conceal his excitement, but anyone can clearly see the stars in his eyes.
Arthur: Isn't this incredible, Mordred? We're flying! We're actually flying on a real airship!
Mordred: Ahem... Yeah, but take it down a notch, man—everyone's gonna think we're a couple of country bumpkins.
Arthur: I don't even care—this is too amazing!
Mordred: Haha, well... Yeah, it really is.
The crew is all smiles upon seeing the two revel in their new environment.
Lyria: Hehe, I'm glad you two like it!
Vyrn: Yeah, looks like it was totally worth it!
After basking in the sights once again, Arthur takes a long gaze at the azure sky above.
Arthur: Say... Mordred.
Mordred: What's up?
Arthur: All my life I've wanted to protect our beloved homeland, so I'd never given the outside world much thought until now...
Mordred: Me neither. We've both been too busy only thinking about Feendrache... and one day becoming captain of the order.
Arthur: Yeah... But flying in the sky like this got me thinking.
Arthur: This world is sooo incredibly vast!
Arthur: Imagine the adventures that lay beyond our horizon—I'm tingling with excitement just thinking about it!
Arthur spreads his arms wide and guffaws.
Mordred: Heh. Man, I really don't get you sometimes.
Mordred cracks a smile, squinting as the wind gently brushes his face.
The young knights stand before a boundless sky, their futures as bright as the ever-unfolding horizon.
