Scenario:Io - Eat and be Merry
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
Eat and Be Merry
Mysteriously unable to use her magic, Io is crushed. As she thinks back on her journey thus far with (Captain) and the others, she remembers that the turning point was her master telling her that "magic exists to make people smile." Just as Io regrets having forgotten the basics of magic, the wand and clothes she got from her master begin to glow, filling with magic power. Just then, Lyria and Vyrn tell her that a swarm of monsters is attacking the village, and Io hurries to the rescue.
Faced with a swarm of monsters, Io finds herself unable to use magic. She and (Captain) escape deeper into the forest.
Io: Pant… Wheeze… We… we should be safe now…
Io: Why? Why can't I use my magic?
Io: This has never happened before… I don't know what to do! What do I do?
Io: Sniff… Sob… Waaaahhhh! Master… MASTERRR!
Choose: It'll be OK.
Io: Sniff… How? How can you be so calm?
Choose: Crying won't solve anything.
Io: Nnn… I know, but… Why are you trying to act all rational about this?Continue 1
Io: I can tell from the look on your face that you're just as worried as me!
Io: But… if I can't use magic… then I guess I'd better leave the crew…
Io: I guess my journey ends here… You know, it's strange. It feels like everything back on Valtz happened so long ago…
Io: Sigh… Why did I ever agree to travel with you people?
Sierokarte: (Captain)! She's awake! Come on in! Don't be shy!
Io: N-nice to meet you… I guess I owe you one. Thanks.
Lyria: Hey, Io! What's the archduke like?
Io: Master? Well… He's crude, and spontaneous, and forgetful, and a total slob… but he's the kindest man I know.
Io: He would tell me, "Magic exists to make people smile," and he really believed that. He always walked the walk.
Vyrn: Just a little longer, guys! All that's left is that giant one!
Io: Watch me, Master… I'll make you smile. I'll use the best, most powerful magic ever, like you taught me… and you'll smile again!
Tzaka the Great: I know… Get going, Io.
Tzaka the Great: Go on and make 'em smile. Go beat the Empire into the ground, so everyone that's crying can smile again!
Io: I will! I've decided… I'm going with (Captain)!
Io: For their smiles…
Io: That's right… I decided to travel with you people so that I could use my magic to make people smile…
Io: But here I am, worrying about my talent… worrying about not being as good as my master…
Io: I'm sorry, Master. I don't deserve to call myself your disciple…
Just then, Io closed her eyes and began to concentrate quietly.
Io: Hehe! I did it…
Io: Oh! (Captain), you're finally smiling again! What a relief. You were so worried before…
Io: Huh? Wh- what the…
Io: Wh- whoa! My magic power is overflowing all of a sudden! Wh-what's going on?
Io: Could it be? Are Master's clothes and wand reacting to my magic?
Vyrn: Hey, we've got trouble!
…Wait, huh? What's with that getup, Io?
…Wait, huh? What's with that getup, Io?
Io: Oh, hey, lizard… This is, uh… Oh, but first, what's this about trouble?
Lyria: Y-you see… A swarm of monsters is heading for the village!
Io: What? Th- the same ones who attacked us?
Io: We have to help them! Let's go, (Captain)!
Eat and Be Merry: Scene 2
A lone female mage tries to hold off the swarm of monsters. Just as she's about to give out, the crew arrives. She doesn't seem optimistic about their chances, but Io decides to face the swarm using her smile-inducing magic.
The crew returns to find that the monsters are already swarming the village, and a single female mage is holding them off.
Female Mage: HAAAAAHHH!
Villager 1: No, Miss Mage! There's no end to them! You have to get out of here!
Female Mage: I'll buy you some time! Help the others evacuate!
Villager 2: Thank you so much… You'd better catch up to us, all right? We'll be waiting!
Female Mage: Nngh… There's just so many of them…
Female Mage: What a swarm… Looks like my time's up…
Io: HEY! Don't even think about giving up!
Female Mage: It's you… and the rest of your crew…
Vyrn: You OK, mage lady? Wait… you're hurt!
Lyria: We need to get it treated straight away!
Female Mage: I'm fine… Don't worry about me. You people need to get out of here, or else your journey ends here.
Io: No, you need to get out of here! Just leave this to me!
Female Mage: D-don't be silly! Your magic won't be enough to handle them!
Io: Like I care!
Female Mage: Now you listen here, little lady! I refuse to let a child like you sacrifice herself!
Io: Excuse me? Sacrifice myself? Yeah right!
Io: I just want to make everyone smile… and that includes you! That's what mages are here for!
Female Mage: Oh…
Io: Here we go! Let's get 'em, (Captain)!
Eat and Be Merry: Scene 3
With her new strengthened magic, Io annihilates the nearby monsters, and the female mage is stunned by Io's marked improvement. After some encouragement from Io, the female mage agrees to help protect the village.
The party managed to drive off the monsters, and the female mage was stunned to witness Io's powerful magic.
Female Mage: That was incredible… I never knew you had such potential…
Io: Hehehe! Honestly, I kinda surprised myself!
Lyria: That's our Io! But it looks like there are monsters outside the village still…
Vyrn: Whoa! They just keep coming!
Io: Grrrr! Take a hint already!
…Hey, can you still fight?
…Hey, can you still fight?
Female Mage: Y-yeah… What's your plan?
Io: I want you to stay and protect the village. We'll go and drive the monsters away. How about it? Can you trust me with this?
Female Mage: …………
Female Mage: Hehe… Very well. I'd trust you with my life at this point. Go get 'em, girl!
Io: Will do!
Vyrn: All right, let's get going! They're coming from the plateau!
Lyria: Let's go, everyone! It's time to go on the offensive!
Io: Let's go knock 'em flat!
Eat and Be Merry: Scene 4
The crew manages to drive away the monster swarm. The female mage acknowledges Io's power and gives up on joining the crew. Io realizes how much she's grown and returns to her journey through the sky, hoping to make even more people smile.
After defeating monsters left and right, the party has finally driven the swarm away. Before they knew it, night has fallen…
Villager 1: Thank you, Io! Your magic is incredible!
Villager 2: Goodness, I'm so touched! Let me make a monument in your honor!
Io: Oh, shut up already! Just yesterday you people were ignoring me!
Female Mage: Hehe! Oh, what's the matter? You're the one who put those smiles on their faces.
Vyrn: You did a great job! I can't believe you're the same girl who was crying like a baby in the forest!
Io: You shut your lizard mouth!
Lyria: Hehehe! And the Archduke helped, too.
Io: That's true. I can't believe he laced the clothes and wand with something like that…
Female Mage: Hehe! I guess I'm no match for you.
Female Mage: I've decided to stop asking to join your crew. With you around, I don't think I'll be needed… What a pity.
Io: Are you sure? It wouldn't hurt to have another mage on board. You could still?
Female Mage: My pride would never allow it. I'll just find an even better crew! Hehe… See you around.
Io: She's gone…
Io: Oh yeah! I… I need to apologize… Umm, about yesterday… The things I said…
Vyrn: Aw, don't sweat it! We know you say stuff you don't mean when you're mad.
Lyria: Oh, it's fine! We're just glad you came back!
Io: Th-thanks… and… I'm sorry.
Vyrn: Oh? What's this? Adon't tell me you're crying?
Io: B-back off, lizard! Don't get all up in a lady's face! It's rude!
Vyrn: GAAAH! Don't hit me with the Archduke's wand!
Lyria: Hehehe! I'm so glad Io is back to normal!
Io: Hehehe… Well then, let's go back to the Grandcypher!
And so, Io overcame her hardship and grew from the experience.
Once again, she returns to the skies, following her dream of making people smile.
