Scenario:Stan - Newfound Will
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
Stan has left (Captain)'s crew and Aliza behind, ruminating on the nature of true strength as he cuts through a horde of monsters. Upon further reflection, he returns to the crew, deciding it's the best way for him to become stronger, and apologizes to (Captain) for his selfish actions. They happily accept him back, and Stan joins the crew on its adventures once more.
After being separated from (Captain), Stan travels alone.
He attacks a horde of monsters in an unpopulated wasteland.
The monsters recoil at Stan's attacks, gradually beginning to flee.
Stan: Huff... Huff...
Stan: Something's wrong... This is no different from when I was afflicted with Llana's Disease.
Stan: If the only thing I've gained is physical strength... then I'm still weak.
Stan: I still haven't found... true strength.
Stan sits down and lets out a small sigh.
He ponders the meaning of true strength in earnest. Recollections of (Captain) float through his mind.
Stan: (Captain)... You really are incredible... To face such difficulties from such a young age...
Stan: Traveling with you was quite an experience... Though I nearly died about a hundred times...
Stan: If I traveled with (Captain) again, perhaps I could find true strength...
Stan: (...Not to mention...)
A few days later...
Stan: I... made it.
Stan suddenly returns to the party.
Lyria: Ah... Is that you, Stan?
Vyrn: What the... Stan, you came back?
Stan: Ah ha ha... Yeah, kinda embarrassing, but here I am.
Vyrn: I thought you wanted to go traveling by yourself? What happened?
Stan: I've been thinking over a lot of stuff while on my own.
Stan: Particularly about the nature of true strength.
Vyrn: Huh? True... strength?
Stan: Yeah. I've found physical strength, enough to take on almost any kind of monster.
Stan: But that alone isn't enough. Druj and Aliza would just laugh at me.
Vyrn: So um... You're saying the strength you have now isn't the real deal?
Stan nods firmly in response to Vyrn's question.
Stan: I have to improve the strength of my spirit. Spur it towards growth.
Stan: So I thought, who the heck would be able to teach me about true strength?
Vyrn: Wait, you don't mean... (Captain), do you?
Stan: That's right. I want to study true strength under you, (Captain).
Lyria: I see... So that's why you came back.
Stan: But that's not all. I needed to pay you guys back for everything you've done, as well.
Lyria: Pay us back? But we didn't do anything...
Stan: Not true. It's thanks to all of you and Aliza that I can live the way I do now.
Stan: (Captain), Lyria, Vyrn... Thank you so much.
Vyrn: Heh heh, don't mention it! The fact that you're alive is thanks enough!
Stan: Ha ha... You guys really are the best, seriously...
Stan: Hey, (Captain), I really wanted to apologize. I caused you a lot of trouble by just doing my own thing.
Stan: But I want to travel with you again. Selfish request, I realize, but...
Stan: Can you let me tag along with your crew again?
Choose: No way.
Stan: Huh? No way?
Vyrn: Yeah, I mean... You did head off on your own.
Stan: But that's... Listen, I recognize that I messed up, so please...
Vyrn: You did put us through a lot of trouble...
Stan: Ugh... I'm going to make it up to you during the journey, I swear!
Stan: Please, I'm begging you here...
Choose: You'll have to help out with the chores.
Stan: Ch-chores? Um, about that...
Stan: Ha ha... Well, I guess I can't argue with that, after everything I've put you through.
Stan: And I can't expect to live on a ship without pitching in...Continue 1
Lyria: Hey, (Captain), you feel sorry for him, don't you?
Vyrn: Ha ha ha, I guess we are all about forgiveness around here.
Stan: You mean...
Vyrn: (Captain) was just joking earlier, of course!
Stan: Oh, I see... You were just joking... Thank goodness...
Stan: I... won't be so lonely anymore...
Vyrn: Huh? Wait a sec... Did you just come back here because you were lonely?
Stan: N-no! I mean, uh...
Stan: I really do want to learn about true strength from (Captain) and repay my debt to all of you...
Stan: That's not a lie. I mean all of it. But honestly, I was pretty lonely out there by myself...
Vyrn: Bwahahaha! That's our Stan for you! Hasn't changed one bit!
Stan: Wh-what's that supposed to mean?
Stan: No, you're right. I haven't changed. I have to get stronger.
Vyrn: Heh heh heh! Nah, I think you have changed, actually! If only just a little!
Vyrn: You can see your own weaknesses now! That's new!
(Captain) nods in agreement with Vyrn's assessment, and offers Stan their hand.
Stan: Haha, thanks. I'm sure I'll be learning a lot from you.
Stan takes (Captain)'s hand and smiles.
And with that, Stan once again joins the crew on their travels.
