Part 50: SpiralWeve been pretty bored the past few weeks, not much to do while we wait for graduation now...
Because well, you can learn from it, too.
If it was a collar for you, Id be more than happy to.
Nothing. Is that all for today?
Yeah. Thank you.
I was hoping to make a stronger one, but
Just change the stone that you used in it.
Yeah But its really hard to balance
Fine. Ill help you. Im sure Im better at this than you are.
Thanks, it really helps.
If I could control you with this collar, Id have so much fun.
Nothing. Here, try making it like this next time.
Why do Roxis eyes look so evil today ?
System Message: Item: Magic Stone Collar can now be made.
With everything done, it was inevitable the question would arise again.

Next up is graduation. Come to think of it, that was pretty fast.
Are you even guaranteed to graduate yet?
Hmph, you underestimate me. I had an intricate plan to gaining units
I made him a schedule.
Wow. When did you do that?
Umm at the beginning of the year, I was forced
Its not good for him to stay here so many years.
Ive had enough of this hollow conversation.
How long were you all planning to avoid the obvious question at hand?
I wasnt really planning anything
Well, I wanna know, but
Vayne, this isnt going to solve itself on its own.
Curiosity is a troublesome beast. People want to know what they should not.
There are things were better off not knowing. Especially for them
But it seems thats not gonna slide
We didnt have time to finish our conversation, though, because thats when she walked in.
You, again What do you want?
Nothing from you.
I cant allow any student involvement. Bring him far into the Resource Center.
Hey! Dont ignore us and keep talk
If we go there, will you tell me what I am?
Im glad that you at least realize youre not normal.
I know all about you That is why I must do this.
What a tease. Do you think well mindlessly obey everything you say?
Whether you come or not is your choice. If you dont, Ill find another way.
Ms. Isolde, please answer my question. If I go Then will you tell me?
Of course. Im not heartless.
She says that, but Anyway, she wanted me to come alone and I should have probably listened, but everyone else insisted on being there.
Yeah. I want to hear what she knows. About me and about Sulpher.
Then, lets go. We dont need much preparation.
Yup. Im perfectly fine like this.
Youre all gonna come?
Of course. We cant let you have all the fun.
She really knows how to make a ghost curious.
It might be dangerous, like last time
Then itll be even more dangerous to go by yourself.
Dont worry. She is a teacher, after all. Even she has limits.
Yeah I hope so
We still didnt understand how far she was willing to go.
Im in a hurry. Maybe later.
Wait. What do you plan to do with those children?
Ive explained many times the danger that he holds.
I know, but I still cant believe it.
Even if it were true, the fears you have are merely possibilities.
It will be too late if it happens for real.
Theres something else. His powers are just an excuse, arent they?
Though the purpose is different, the result will be the same. Excuse me
I said wait!
If you try to stop me, I wont hesitate, not even for you.
I couldnt even take a step How pathetic.
However You are a sinful man, Theofratus
Deep within the Resource Center Ms. Isolde had opened a new path up for us to an unused area.
Huh? Did you even hear what we said?
We want to know, too Is that so bad?
No, but I have a bad feeling about this
Youre already in for it. It might actually be better that theyre here.
Professor Feinnes Alchemy 300: The Unorganized Zone
Theres nothing to this dungeon, but make sure you get all the chests here because all of the best armors have their recipes in here and its a long walk back if you miss one.
She was waiting for us in a really strange room in the depths.

Things Fall Apart
Theres no story behind it, but it feels so nostalgic
I see you came.
I thought I told you not to involve any other students.
We dont quite trust what youve got up your sleeve.
Or is there a problem with us being here?
We want to know about Vayne, too.
I suppose it will help me deal with the confusion later.
Ms. Isolde, you promised. Please tell me everything you know about me
And thats what she did. I suppose I have no choice but to believe what she said.
My dad right?
Dad? I suppose you can call him that.
He made many discoveries, greatly contributing to the advance of alchemy.
But everyone around him looked at him with jealous eyes.
He couldnt stand it, so he left. He used alchemy to benefit the public.
He was free of all his burdens. He was happier than Id ever seen him.
But in one of the towns he visited, he made an irreparable mistake.
There was a girl who was very sick. She had an unknown illness
But he was overconfident. He believed he knew how to cure the girl.
What is it, Jess?
N-nothing Im sorry.
He tried to cure her, using his own unique alchemy methods.
As a result, he was able to rid the girl of her disease. But
Her life her remaining time, had also been taken with the disease.
But the girl was grateful. With her innocent smile, she thanked him deeply.
Still, it was all hard to accept.
Living quietly in the forest, his heart slowly became distorted
Thats why theres nothing written about his final years.
Jess, you look a little pale. Are you alright?
Y-yeah, Im okay. Im fine
Nice monologue, but do you mind speeding it up?
His distorted mind slowly filled with dark emotions.
Conceit of being a genius. Vengeance against mockery. Vanity to spite others.
In order to satisfy those emotions, he set upon his final research
Creating life a refined form of artificial Mana. Do you understand yet?
Umm Dont tell me
Especially for the others.
Thats just preposterous.
Eh, Id give him a 4/10. Hes way too nice for those kinds of emotions.
Harsh criticism. But Im sure you can think of times that confirm this.
But that cant be. I just have amnesia
I wish you were just an artificial life.
If that were the case, you would not have been so fascinating.
The problem is, the powers you hold as a Mana
But all those times
I didnt want to believe Id done it.
Who restored the burned tree? Who defeated the great beast?
Who released the frozen Mana from the crystal? Who revived a dead cat?
Your power did all that.
But thats not
Y-youre lying! Its just a coincidence.
I mean, do you even have proof that Vayne did all that!?
Nikkis right. Your conclusion does sound like a bit of a stretch.
And what do you think?
We should never have gone there. We thought that we knew Ms. Isolde. I mean, shed saved Sulpher that one time. Sure, she attacked us, but that at least seemed to have a reason that made sense.
We didnt really know her at all, though.
How could we have, though?
It wont be long, you can bear this.
Weh er ?
Teacher Why ?
Youll be fine. Im confident.
No This is a joke, right?
Its all I can tell myself.
