CHAPTER TWELVE: Rocket-Jumping to Godhood

: Are you ready to confront the Guardian?
: My lord, I've been waiting for this moment for far too long. I'm more than ready.
: Very well then. You must be off to Terfin; that's where you'll find the Guardian. Go, go and destroy him so that you may finally fulfill your destiny and move on from this place.
: What about you my lord?
: I'll not be with you. This is something that you must do alone. Don't worry though, the companions and I will be busy doing our part.
: There are things that we must do so that you may confront the Guardian.
: But will I ever see you again?
: No. You are made of something greater, Avatar. It's time for you to go. It's time for you to ascend. Farewell, old friend.
: Goodbye my lord.

: I suppose I'd better be.
: Just remember that justice must be done. Always keep that in your heart. Goodbye Avatar.

: Don't forget that I owe you my life: lo those many years ago when the Shadow Lords appeared and pierced me with that magic arrow, you saved me then.
: I don't know where we'll come out at the end of this, but if you ever have need of me, call and I'll be there.
: If I have to cross worlds to come to your aid, I will. Remember your spirituality and you will succeed.

: Oh well, it's too late for regret, or for thoughts of what might have been.
: Just go knowing that I love you, and remember this always: the sacrifice that you have made, that of a normal life, is a noble one.
: You have done much for the Britannian people, and in your final act as the Avatar, you'll do still more for them.
: Yes, well, thank you for your kindness.
: Thank you, Avatar. Goodbye.

: I remember dealing with that corrupt fool Batlin as though it were yesterday.
: I wish with my heart that we could go on this final adventure together, but it can not be; we all have our roles to play and they take us to different places.
: As you go forward, remember your honesty, it is your greatest attribute.
: Goodbye my friend.
: Goodbye and good luck.

: You have always been the most humble of people, Avatar. I have always admired that in you.
: Keep that humility in your heart, and you will always do well. Goodbye, dear friend.

: Well, I've said enough, go bravely my friend.

: Say, do you remember back when we were warring with the Gargoyles and they had you on that altar and were just about to sacrifice you?
: How could I forget?
: Well just don't forget that it was the quarrel from my bow that killed that Gargoyle priest and saved you.
: Farewell my friend, our journeys together will always be dear to me. Remember compassion and you will always do well.

: I'm surprised you're not already at the tavern draining the ale kegs!
: Can you believe this old man? You'd think that after having been dead for the last 20 years, he'd show a little respect.
: Why? He never did before you died.
: In all seriousness, look about you, Avatar.
: All of our old companions gathered here in one place and for one purpose.
: You did this, Avatar. You did all of this, and when we get rid of the Guardian, Britannia will be healed and whole again.
: You've long been a hero, Avatar. Thank you for all that you've done.
: Thanks very much. It's too bad that we don't have time for a drink, eh?
: We'll have that drink some other time. We've got more important things to do right now.

: Oh, is that all?
: It won't be easy, but we can do it.
: There won't be any 'we', Raven. I'll be going alone.
: But, I...
: No buts. I'm not saying this just to protect you; this is pre-ordained. I'm not just going in there to defeat another enemy, I'm finishing something that started a long time ago.
: I'm finishing something that is more important than two people.
: Can't I at least sail to Terfin with you? Can't you at least give me that?
: Yes, of course. This might be our last chance to be alone together. I wouldn't miss that for the world.
: Let's get underway, then.

: Are you still telling me where I need to go next?
: Shut up and listen to me. There's a secret entrance into Terfin that will get you past most of the Wyrmguard.
: It's up on the northern part of the island, behind the dragons' den. If you can stay clear of the dragons, this entrance will be much safer.
: Well I guess this is it. I can't tell you how much you mean to me, or what our time together has meant, so I won't try. I just want to say thank you.
: Thank you for coming into my life and thank you for what you've done here. You're my life and my love, Avatar. I won't forget you.
: Raven, I...
: No, please don't say it. If you start talking then I'm going to break down and cry and I don't want to do that.
: Please, just smile, tell me what you love me and then leave.
: I love you.
: I love you, too. Goodbye.
