|Elle||I get to be Santa Claus tonight! Along with Ludger and all our friends!|
|Ludger||You sure do!|
|Grassvalley||These costumes are surprisingly warm. And they look so cute!|
|Rocks||It looks incredible on you!|
|Cheria||Really? They seem a little bit... revealing...|
|Sara||I think everyone looks incredible!|
|Grassvalley||But what about you and (user), Sara? Are you sure you don't want to wear Santa costumes?|
|Sara||Yeah. We'll be backing you guys up, so it's best we stay in street clothes so as not to attract any attention.|
|Santa||All right, are we ready to get on with this?|
|Santa||The two districts in this town that have larger population of children are called the Parklands and Roadhouse Way.|
|Ludger||So you think we should split up into two teams to make the deliveries?|
|Luke||The Parklands has a lot of orphanages and churches that I've toured before, so I know the area pretty well. I can lead that team.|
|Grassvalley||Okay, so who wants to work with Luke on that team?|
|Elle||I worry about Luke. I'll come along to look after him.|
|Luke||What? You're not going anywhere. You wait here like a good little ankle-biter.|
|Elle||But I need to make sure you deliver the presents to the kids like you're supposed to!|
|Luke||What's that supposed to mean? Why wouldn't I?!|
|Sara||Heh heh. Good luck with that, Elle!|
|Ludger||Well, I'm going where Elle goes.|
|Mieu||And I'd follow Master anywhere!|
|Rose||All right... Now for the Roadhouse Way team.|
|Sara||(user) and I have been in town for a while, and know a little bit about that area.|
|Cheria||Okay, the teams are settled. Let's get started!|
|Grassvalley||Sounds good to me.|
|Elle||All right! Come on Ludger, let's get going!|
|Ludger||Okay, so if anyone sees Smith while making the deliveries, take him down. I know we'll all be busy, but... that's how it's gotta be.|
|Lippy||Hmmm. It's certainly quiet here.|
|Cheria||Roadhouse Way is like that at this time of night. Everyone's asleep.|
|Rose||Our job would be that much harder if they weren't! Santa's gotta work in secret while the kids are having their vision of sugarplums, right?|
|Sara||Wh-What? That costume is so garish I can barely stand to look at it!|
|Skyknight||Hmph. Show some respect to the new saint of the Yuletide!|
|Cheria||Out of our way, you fraud of a saint! Blessed droplet, drive away evil in this name! Lightning Blast!|
|Skyknight||B-Bwaaaahhh! Who dares?!|
|Rose||That's our garish fake Santa all right.|
|Cheria||Time to pay for your deceit!|
|Skyknight||More vulgarians who don't know how to appreciate my style? Death is better than you deserve!|
|Rocks||Please be careful, everyone!|
|Rose||Wow, that was a piece of cake. Is that really the world's most powerful Santa suit...?|
|Lippy||Hmm. He did seem marginally more powerful than he was on our previous encounter, but I'd hardly call him a threat.|
|Skyknight||P-Please! Forgive me! I'm so, so sorry!|
|Cheria||Then reflect upon what you've done and start acting like it!|
|Rose||So now what do we do with him? Send him to the local order of knights on charges of Santa impersonation?|
|Skyknight||N-No! I won't let you imprison me! Bloom, my winter blossom! Tears of Eternal Perdition!|
|Grassvalley||Whoa, that's bright!|
|Rose||You've gotta be kidding me... He had a flash grenade?!|
|Skyknight||Ha ha ha ha! You blew your chance! now no one can stop me!|
|Grassvalley||He got away!|
|Rose||Looks like he's flying towards the Parklands district...|
|Cheria||We can't follow him until we've finished delivering these presents!|
|Lippy||Dear me, you're right! But... If we don't pursue him now, we'll lose sight of him entirely!|
|Grassvalley||Cheria is right, Lippy. We have to deliver all of these presents tonight!|
|Rose||Yeah. Besides, if he's in the Parklands, I'm sure Ludger and Luke will take care of him for us.|
|Sara|| What's that, (user)? Isn't this the reason we came along as back-up...? Yeah, I... I guess you're right! |
Okay, (user), you and Lippy go join up with Ludger's team. I'll stay here to support the Santas.
|Grassvalley||Sounds good. I'd feel a lot better knowing they have back-up, just in case.|
|Rose||Yeah... I've got a bad feeling that there's more trouble ahead tonight. Be careful.|
|Cheria||We'll join up with you as soon as we can, (user) and Lippy. Stay safe until then, okay?|
|Lippy||We shall, Lady Cheria.|
|Grassvalley||This didn't seem like such a big deal when we agreed to it, but wow, this is a whole lot of presents.|
|Rocks||There is one for every child in the district, after all.|
|Sara||All right. I'll help with the hauling while you guys focus on doing the Santa thing!|
|Cheria||I'm so excited thinking about the smiles on the children's faces when they wake up to find a present beside them!|
|Rocks||Allow me to help with the heavy lifting!|
|Elle||It sure is quiet around here.|
|Ludger||You weren't kidding, Luke. There are a ton of churches and orphanages around here.|
|Luke||Oh, hey! That's Lippy and (user)!|
|Lippy||Good evening, everyone.|
|Mieu||Is everything going well with Sara's team?|
|Lippy||Well, we fought and bested that Smith fellow, but once again he managed to escape.|
|Luke||How could you let him get away?!|
|Elle||Does that mean that the fake Santa is gonna come this way now, Ludger?|
|Ludger||Most likely, yeah. If he started on Roadhouse Way, this is where he'd come next.|
|Luke||Well, speak of the devil. The bastard's right there, on the roof of that church!|
|Elle||That's him! The fake Santa!|
|Skyknight|| Wha... Whaaa! |
D-Don't just yell out at people like that! I was so startled I almost fell off this roof!
|Luke||We meet again. You ready for a rematch?|
|Skyknight||Bwaahhh! N-No! I... I refuse to be beaten by the likes of you!|
|Luke||Huh? What do you mean, "the likes of me"?|
|Skyknight||A... A long time ago I was forced to kowtow to a violent, foul-mouthed bully like yourself!|
|Luke||What are you talking about? That's got nothing to do with me!|
|Skyknight|| I am none other than the reincarnation of the God-Lord "t," ruler of Yule! My true powers remain sealed away... |
But I will be born anew on Christmas, and reap all the blessings of the Heavens on this most glorious holiday!
|Lippy||Ah, I understand. Your friends didn't want to play along with that scenario?|
|Skyknight|| Silence! |
Christmas has always been my time to shine, but whenever I put my ashen mind to creating new inventions, they take them away, and mock me!
Such torments I have faced at their hands! But there is no one who can stop me now!
Ha ha ha ha ha! But do not mistake this for revenge. This is the second coming of the All-Seeing God-Lord!
|Ludger||Smith, I feel like I get where you're coming from a little better now. I sympathize, but I don't quite understand...|
|Luke|| Well I don't get anything at all! God-Lord "t"? Who rules Yule? What?! |
You go around spouting nonsense like that and it's no wonder you get bullied!
|Elle||I'd think you'd be nicer, considering your own personality is not much better!|
|Luke||Shut up, Elle! You're not helping!|
|Skyknight||I've been crafting Christmas presents befitting my style as the God-Lord! Presents as novel and stylish as my Santa suit!|
|Elle||Stop it! No one wants your presents! They wanted the presents from the real Santa!|
|Ludger||Don't you remember how intensely you anticipated presents from Santa when you were a child?|
|Skyknight||Oh, you needn't worry about that. Surely any child would adore one of my presents. Bwa ha ha ha!|
|Ludger||But when you were a kid, wouldn't it have upset you to get something else, instead of the present you asked for?|
|Skyknight||Wh-What? How did you...?! Well, yes... Once in my youth I mistakenly wrote down the wrong name and didn't get the present I wanted because of it...|
|Ludger|| And now you want to make these kids suffer the same fate? |
Isn't it a Santa's job to bring great presents to the good children of the world? Ones that'll bring them joy?
That's why I'm asking you to stop delivering your strange presents that will bring only tears to their eyes!
|Elle|| Yeah! Your presents aren't going to bring any joy to anyone! |
So keep 'em to yourself!
|Lippy||Master Ludger and Lady Elle are right. Please consider their words!|
|Skyknight||Shut up! All of you, shut up! I've come too far to stop now! What of my pride?|
|Luke||This guy's never gonna listen to us! Why don't we just give him another beating? That'd solve everything, right?|
|Skyknight||B-Bwaaahhh! Okay... C-Come and get me, then!|
|Luke||Your wish is my command, buddy!|
|Lippy||Excellent work, my friends!|
|Skyknight||D-Damn it! I'm gonna get you for this!|
|Luke||More empty threats? How clueless can you be? Do it, Mieu!|
|Mieu||Yes, Master! Fire!|
|Skyknight||Bwaaahhh!!! Ow ow ow ow!|
|Luke|| We got you now, weirdo. Guess third time's the charm. |
Now hold still and behave!
|Skyknight||Augh! Urgh... *thud*|
|Luke||Finally settled down, huh?|
|Church|| Look, it's Santa! |
The good Santa just beat the bad Santa!
|Lippy||Dear me... We seem to have awoken the neighborhood children with all our commotion.|
|Church|| You were so cool there, Santa! |
Yeah! Do that arte again!
|Elle||Ludger! You're blushing!|
|Luke||Well, Smith's finally surrendered, so our work here is done. Which is great, because I'm beat.|
|Church|| Um... |
Hey, red-haired Santa!
|Luke||What? What do you want from me?|
|Church||You're so strong! And so cool! I want one of your presents, Santa!|
|Luke||Presents? Oh, right. Sure, go nuts. Go ahead and take one.|
|Church|| Oh, wow! |
Me too! I want one too!
|Luke||H-Hey! Let go of my hair! That hurts!|
|Lippy||The local children seem to be quite taken with Masters Ludger and Luke!|
|Elle||We did it! We got all the presents safely delivered!|
|Ludger||Yeah. And we got to see the smiles on the faces of all those kids!|
|Luke||Ugh. What a pain that was! I'm never helping with anything like this ever again.|
|Church||Excuse me, Mr. Santa? Thank you so much for all that you've done for these children.|
|Ludger||Oh, don't worry about it. Just get those kids back to bed before they catch a cold!|
|Church||What a kind-hearted Santa you are. You've made this a Christmas Eve to remember.|
|Elle||Let's hurry back!|
|Ludger||That's right, Elle. Come on, (user), we gotta meet back up with Sara's team!|
|Lippy||I'll use my smartphon to locate the current position of Lady Sara's team. Bear with me for just a moment, please.|
|Luke||What are you mumbling about? You still can't get up?|
|Skyknight||Bwaaaahhh! Don't hurt me! I renounce violence! I'm sorry, I'm so sorry!|
|Luke||Why did you even wake up if you're just gonna grovel and moan all day? Just go back to sleep already.|
|Ludger||Maybe we really got through to him with what we said earlier?|
|Skyknight||Obstructing the rebirth of the God-Lord "t"... This cannot... *mumble mumble*|
|Luke||Yeah, he's still babbling about that God-Lord nonsense. You didn't get through to squat.|
|Lippy||Everyone, stop what you're doing! Prepare to defend yourselves! I'm sensing that something terrible is about to happen!|
|Elle||L-Look at the fake Santa! His costume's glowing!|
|Lippy||Everyone, be careful! I sense a powerful presence emerging!|
|Skyknight||Arise, Smith! Do not allow them to beat you so easily!|
|Mieu||His Santa suit is talking!|
|Ludger||What is going on here?!|
|Skyknight|| Santas always restrict themselves to costumes of red and white. They never even deign to look my way. |
Smith! If you had not dared to wear me, I would have rotted in that dresser forever. Do not forget your pride in having chosen me!
Eccentric design? Unconventional colors? What of it! I am a splendid Santa suit, designed to be worn with aplomb!
And now the Santa Association must pay for the disrespect they've shown me! I will take Christmas away from them!
Smith! I bestow upon you the honor of hosting my awakening! They shall know our true power!
|God-Lord|| He he ha ha ha ha! I am Nicholaus, All-Seeing God-Lord! Reborn at last after eons of exile! |
Am I delusional? Mad? NO! No no no! Absolutely not! I control everything! And no one can stop me now!
Christmas is mine now, the whole world over! And I shall brook no complaint!
|Sara||Ludger! (user)! Here you are!|
|Ludger||Sara! We've... got a bit of a problem here.|
|Rose||Whoa, what's up with that?! He's even more garish than he was before!|
|Cheria||I guess that weird Santa suit really does possess some sort of strange power.|
|Luke||Aw, crap. And it's channeling that power into Smith!|
|Rocks||The Santa suit is... what?!|
|Grassvalley||I don't know how it works, but... I guess he's been powered up somehow?|
|Lippy||That appears to be the situation, yes.|
|Ludger||Elle! Run to safety! This could get dangerous!|
|Elle|| I... I will... But Ludger... |
Teach that bad Santa suit that Christmas is supposed to be a happy time for all!
|Ludger||I will! Everyone, be careful. I don't think Smith's just a normal man anymore.|
|Sara||Yeah. This time we're gonna put an end to this for good!|
|God-Lord||Ha ha ha ha! Allow me to thank you for all that you've done... By showing you how truly powerless you are!|
|Cheria||We got him! We won!|
|God-Lord|| No. No no no no! Categorically no! I won't let this end! |
After I was ignored for so long... After my pride was trampled for so long... I will never let this end!
|Rocks||You mustn't take this any further! There could be serious repercussions on you as well!|
|Grassvalley||Huh? Did you just see that glimmer in the sky...?!|
|Lippy||Something is diving from above! And with incredible force!|
|Mieu||That's reindeer for "sorry to keep you waiting!"|
|Santa|| I came as quickly as I could! |
Rose! Thanks to your guild, I was able to get a new sleigh in time! Send them my regards!
|Rose||Glad to be of service!|
|Santa||Thanks for covering for me, guys! Cheria's cooking has me back in fine fettle!|
|God-Lord||Hmph. No mystery what you've come for. The establishment always gangs up to persecute defeated visionaries!|
|Luke||Again with the nonsensical blather! Just man up and accept your punishment already!|
|Santa|| Hmmm... Due to their deep empathy for each other, the souls of the costume and its wearer seem to have fused into one... |
Will you hear what I have to say? I've come to apologize on behalf of the Santa Association!
|God-Lord||You've come to... what?!|
|Santa||As befits a one-of-a-kind costume made by a master tailor, the Association hid you away for safekeeping, out of respect and veneration!|
|God-Lord||What...? Out of respect...?|
|Santa|| Precisely! Your preservation was one of the central tenets of our organization! |
But I respect that, having been made as the ultimate Santa suit, you wished only to fulfill your destiny. And for that, I apologize deeply.
|God-Lord||And you apologize for that now...? After ignoring me all these years?|
|Santa||From now on, we would be honored to use you for your intended purpose. And Smith! For you - I have a Christmas present.|
|God-Lord||What's this? A crocheted blanket...?|
|Santa|| Do you remember that time you were on a stagecoach, and you saved an elderly woman suffering from stomach pains? |
You intervened in time to keep it from becoming something more serious.
In her gratitude, that woman crocheted this for you.
|Cheria||Don't you see? You're worthy of receiving Christmas presents too!|
|Lippy||Dear me! The strong feelings of resentment and negativity around them have dissipated!|
|Skyknight|| Ohhh... It's so warm... It's just like the one my grandma made for me when I was a baby... |
Ah... I get it now. This is the happiness that a present can bring...
|Santa||Ho ho ho ho! What joy to see you smile at last! And I feel a load lifted off my chest as well!|
|Mieu||Wow... How amazing to see a real Santa in action! You got Smith to open his heart to you like it was nothing!|
|Skyknight|| Santa is... truly an incredible man. |
I beg of you, Santa! Accept me as a disciple! I will train hard! I'll become a better man!
|Santa|| Hmmm... Well, for better or for worse, you do seem to have some sort of affinity with that Santa suit... |
But the training will be grueling! Far worse than you imagine! Are you man enough to grit your teeth and bear it?
|Skyknight||Yes! I will do it! Please!|
|Luke||That's great and all, but listen... I better not catch you messing with anyone ever again!|
|Skyknight|| B-Bwaaahhh!!! I... I understand! I repent of my misdeeds, and thank you for showing me the righteous way! |
As proof of my gratitude, I want each of you to accept a heartfelt Christmas present from me!
|Grassvalley|| What is this...? |
A "Vestigius Remembrancer of Spectacles Past"... Oh, it's a scrapbook of discovery points!
|Cheria||A "Skilleterator of Essences Draconic." This appears to be a dragon-slaying blade that can also be used as a pan for an oil-free fryer...|
|Rose||"A Globulet Array Mercantile." It's... a magical abacus that can instantly calculate profit and loss?|
|Luke||"A Gentleman's Gladius Coticule Acicularus." A self-sharpening longsword made of pure whetstone...?|
|Mieu||"Felini... habili... ments?" Well, it looks like a cheagle-sized plush katz costume!|
|Ludger||A "Hectokilovault?" Seems like a piggybank that won't open up until 100,000 gald has been deposited inside...|
|Elle||I got an apron that transforms the wearer into Wonder Chef! I wonder if I'd know how to cook if I wore this?|
|Skyknight||Well? Do you like them?|
|Luke||Well, uh... I guess this'll really cut down on weapon maintenance...|
|Cheria||I bet I could make Sophie a wonderful crablette with this!|
|Grassvalley||This scrapbook is really lovely. Thank you!|
|Rose||I've never seen a calculating arte like this before. This'll really come in handy!|
|Luke||Well, outside of the stupid names, it looks like everyone really liked them!|
|Skyknight||But... It is in the naming in which I imbued my deep personal affection for each recipient!|
|Sara||Heh. That's... neat. You're gonna have your hands full with this one, Santa. Good luck!|
|Elle||I can't wait for next year's Christmas, Santa!|
|Santa||It will be a splendid one indeed, little girl!|
|Skyknight|| I'm grateful for Santa's present, and I'm grateful that you've all accepted mine! It was a circuitous route that brought me here, but I am glad that it has. |
I vow to become a splendid Santa, worthy of this Santa suit, and bring Christmas joy to all the children of Liafyse!
|Elle||I'll be pulling for you, Smith!|
|Ludger||As will I.|
|Skyknight|| Oh no! I just realized I completely forgot to give presents to Sara, Lippy, and (user)! |
What can I do? I'm completely out of gifts...
|Santa||Ho ho ho ho! Then allow me! Please, accept these gifts from me!|
|Lippy||Your boots, Master Claus? Dear me... This craftsmanship is exquisite!|
|Sara||Wow, check it out, (user)! Those are really cool!|
|Elle||I hope everyone everywhere has a wonderful holiday! Merry Christmas!|
| Merry Christmas! |
