Part 196: 12/24: Velvet EnigmaPart 185: 12/24: Velvet Enigma
Music: Aria of the Soul
And so we wake up in the Velvet Room once more, under far more dire circumstances than usual.
It appears I have underestimated you
I think you mean overestimated, dude. And I did my fuckin best, okay!? What are you supposed to do when you get erased from existence, as if by the Mad Titan himself?
Igor, buddy, this is kind of a trying time for me. Could you maybe try not to rub it in, or at least give me a direct answer to one of my questions for once? Where the hell are my friends?
You incompetent prisoner!
The assistance that we provided was all for naught.
Man, everyones getting in on the Maaku dunkfest today. I just died. Gimme a break.
The world will soon see its ruin
You have lost the game. You were meant to bring change to mankind as a Trickster, but it seems that was too much for you. In accordance to the games rules, the defeated must pay a price.
Uhhh, what the hell?
My experiment has come to naught Everything is over.
What the fuck are you talking about!?
Grant that man a swift death.
I-It just means that you werent an upstanding prisoner !
That may be true, but
What is the matter? Carry out his sentence at once.
(to Caroline) Are we really going to kill him ?
Dont falter now! Its all his fault for losing the game!
Man, I thought we were cool! This is bogus!
All right, Inmate. We now proceed to the execution of your sentence.
Theyre going to kill me at this rate. I need to do something
If our master orders so then it cannot be helped
Man, its just one thing after another today.
Boss": Caroline and Justine
Music: Will Power
Look at Igor just standing in the back there, chilling.
Okay, so for this fight were going to want to--
Well, this is a bad scene all around.
We cant take too much more of this!
I told you not to falter! Are you going against our masters orders!?
RIP Maaku wait, what?
Hmm, it seems like some power is keeping Maaku on his feet
Our duty isnt to kill him! Caroline!
What gives ? Why am I doubting myself? Is there another duty left to us !?
We are wardensthose who rehabilitate prisoners.
Something speaks to me in my mind. Our true duty is not to kill
I can hear someones voice
I feel like Ive heard it somewhere before
What should you do ? Our desire is for you to complete your true rehabilitation
Caroline and Justine look at each other and nod.
We are not executioners. That is the truth we had forgotten.
Weve decided We will not forsake humanity!
The butterfly reappears, then vanishes in a flash of light.
Caroline and Justine clutch their heads and collapse.
Its as if theyre the same yet mirrored
A figure appears before the duo
The two nod again.
What the hell is up with Igor?
So we were captives, same as you Heh To think wed learn that truth from a prisoner.
Let us reclaim our true form !
You must fuse us together, with your own hands.
Its time you returned the favor for us assisting with your growth. Do it with care!
Wait, what!? Ah, shit, it didnt even occur to me wed be using the guillotine! I dont know if I can handle watching these children get decapitated, you guys, theres a reason I didnt see that Toni Collette movie.
So, Igor? You gonna do anything to stop this? No? OK.
Goodbye, Caroline and Justine. Hello whoever the hell this is.
