Days Worth Remembering

Sewing reminds Jeanne of the days of yore when she was but a young village girl. She thinks back on the time she stood up against a pack of wolves attacking the village sheep.

Having completed an assignment for Sierokarte, (Captain) and company return to the Grandcypher for the evening.
The worn-out crew decides to call it an early night.
Jeanne d'Arc: Hm, fatigue should never be left for the next day.
Vyrn: Whew, I'm beat too. (Captain), let's go back to our room!
Jeanne d'Arc: Hm? Wait, (Captain). Look, over there...
When Jeanne points at the captain's clothing, (Captain) looks down to find a tear.
Jeanne d'Arc: It must have gotten stuck somewhere. If you'll hand it to me after changing into your pajamas, I'll gladly mend it for you.
Vyrn: Wow, I didn't know you were good at sewing too, Jeanne!
Jeanne d'Arc: Well, I wouldn't consider myself good at it. But I practiced all manner of handicrafts back in Orleans, so repairing a small tear like this would be quite simple.
Jeanne d'Arc: Okay then... Best get changed and get some rest in the while the night is still early, (Captain).
(Captain) happily complies, changing into nightwear and handing Jeanne the piece of clothing.
Jeanne d'Arc: I think I left my sewing kit here... Ah, found it!
Jeanne d'Arc: I think I left my sewing kit here... Ah, found it!
Jeanne d'Arc: Let's see the backside here... Haha, it's been so long since I've done this.
A blissful smile crosses Jeanne's face as she begins mending (Captain)'s clothing.
Jeanne d'Arc: ...
The knitting session brought back many precious memories for Jeanne.
Jeanne d'Arc: Laa-dee-do... Okay! Daddy's pants are all good now!
Jeanne d'Arc: Next is my shirt... Mm, I guess I might as well add some embroidery here while I'm at it.
Jeanne d'Arc: ...
Jeanne d'Arc: Oh! I can't believe it's so late already! I need to get the sheep back to their hut!
As Jeanne realizes the time and starts putting away the clothing and her sewing kit, someone knocks frantically on the door.
Village Boy: Jeanne! Trouble's afoot!
Jeanne d'Arc: Hm? What's the matter all of a sudden?
Village Boy: It's wolves! They've come to where we left the sheep out!
Jeanne d'Arc: Oh no! Okay, I'm coming with you!
With sword in hand, Jeanne follows the boy toward the farm.
She arrives to find the youths of the village in a frenzy trying to fight off the wolves.
Jeanne d'Arc: Sorry I'm late! I'll help fight too!

Days Worth Remembering: Scene 2

Though the young Jeanne's skill with a sword is evident in the way she handles the wolves, she appears to have trouble fighting people. This all changes, however, after receiving her revelation, and Jeanne is ready to show it in a local sparring match.

Gentle Young Man: All right! We fought them all off and no one was injured!
Orleans Youth: Whew! I've gotta say, Jeanne was incredible back there!
Jeanne d'Arc: Nah, not really. Teamwork was what got us through that. Let's not forget I came late too.
Orleans Youth: Heh, no need to be bashful now! It's just a shame you never go all-out like that during the sparring matches.
Jeanne d'Arc: ...
Gentle Young Man: Aww, give her a break, will you? Now's the time to rejoice!
Orleans Youth: Sorry... Hey, forget about what I just said, Jeanne.
Jeanne d'Arc: No, I'm the one who should apologize for making you worry in the first place.
Jeanne d'Arc: Heh...
Jeanne d'Arc: (Putting up with me back then—before the revelation came to me—couldn't have been easy for everyone.)
Jeanne d'Arc: (But in a way, it was precisely everyone's concern for me that prevented me from realizing my true potential—and it troubled me all the same.)
Jeanne d'Arc: (What kind of person would I have become had I not been bestowed the revelation?)
Jeanne d'Arc: Regardless, it matters little now.
Jeanne continues mending (Captain)'s outfit while thinking back on the events following her acceptance of the revelation.
Jeanne d'Arc: ...
Commander: Hmm... Did something happen, Jeanne? It appears as if any doubt you had has disappeared from your eyes.
Jeanne d'Arc: Yes. I've found my path in life.
Commander: Oh? Care to demonstrate your newfound resolve with some swordplay?
Jeanne d'Arc: Gladly!
Orleans Youth: Hm... So you fight differently now? Heh, always glad to take you on, Jeanne!
Jeanne d'Arc: Likewise.
Jeanne d'Arc: ...
Jeanne d'Arc: (Oh, great one. Thank you for the revelation. Now please see for yourself my conviction!)
Arrayed in resplendent armor, Jeanne proudly takes up her sword and stands up to the challenge.
Jeanne d'Arc: En garde!

Days Worth Remembering: Scene 3

After besting the young man, Jeanne explains to her commanding officer how she finds meaning in life. Back in reality, the present-day Jeanne feels a tinge of sadness at how things have changed so much since then, but she is also aware that these precious memories are precisely what will help her forge the path to a brighter future.

Orleans Youth: Ugh! You've got me beat!
Commander: The match is over! It's a victory for Jeanne!
Jeanne d'Arc: ...
Gentle Young Man: Phew! That was amazing, Jeanne. You're like a totally different person!
Orleans Youth: Aaahahaha! You said it! Jeanne won this one fair and square!
Commander: Hmm... Jeanne. Will you tell me more about this path you've chosen to walk?
Jeanne d'Arc: Certainly. A great being has bestowed upon me a revelation.
Jeanne d'Arc: A revelation to save the world!
Jeanne d'Arc: Ouch!
Jeanne d'Arc: Looks like I just pricked my finger... Did I get any blood on (Captain)'s clothing? Hm, looks clean to me.
The acute pain in Jeanne's finger brings her back to reality.
Jeanne d'Arc: My mind would always wander when I sewed back then, and this kind of thing never happened. I guess I've simply gotten a bit rusty.
Jeanne d'Arc: ...
Jeanne d'Arc: Until I save the world, there's definitely no going back to the simple village girl I used to be...
Jeanne finishes mending (Captain)'s outfit and stashes away her sewing kit.
Jeanne d'Arc—a maiden whose immeasurable kindness compels her to prioritize saving the world above all else...
Yet it is the memories she holds so dear that keep her strong as she pushes forward.
