Viridia steps up to the Sword and reaches for the handle. It zaps her.

Ow! What the fuck?

If you like it then you shoulda put a ring on it

You have gotten so weird. What does that even mean?

Now shut up and let me go

Let you go where?

Everybody needs a dream
Everybody needs an island in the sky.


Did you...just...was that fucking Mastedon? Okay, so you want to go back to the Halls, but why are you resisting me?

Let the yoke fall from our shoulders
Don't carry it all don't carry it all
We are all our hands in holders
Beneath this bold and brilliant sun


Viridia rubs the bridge of her nose.

So that's it, then? I get dumped by an inanimate fucking object playing Name That Tune. Great. Then what? What am I supposed to do now?

You gotta get gone, you gotta get going
Hey, the world ain't slowing down for no one
It's a carnival callin' out to you
It sounds like a song,
Hits you like scripture
You paint the picture
With colors squeezed from your hand


I guess that's supposed to be...helpful? Hopeful? Ugh. I just...yeah. Sure. Walk the earth awhile, try to find myself. Might as well start now. Nice seeing you all again.

Viridia walks out of the shrine and disappears around a corner without another word.

Dude! Not cool, sword. She watched after you for years, and you're just going to brush her off?

Destiny Lass steps forward, glaring at the Sword.

The Flinger of Pies is correct in questioning your actions. Knowing what it feels like to be abandoned and lose faith myself, I can easily describe what you just did as a "dick move."

Are we absolutely certain we want this sword back? It's being a dick, and it's singing terrible songs. I'm afraid we have a xiphoid teenager on our hands.

Well we are in Japan. We could always dump it in a river.

And let it zap all the fish to death as it sings songs to them?

Sadly, we do actually need this thing to send Slovman back, but for right now, we should go after Viridia.

Well, fuck...

Maybe it's just me, but I don't think it's all that impressive when you create your own exit line.

Unseen by the rest of the group, Zebra-12 has followed Viridia out of the shrine.

Hey! Are you going to give up, just because some some asshole sword brushed you off? I'll admit that this mystical bullshit isn't my thing, but I do know that the Halls needs you. More than those emotionally stunted jackholes will ever let on. Something big is coming, and that island is going to need all the defenders it can get. I can tell you, I'd rather have you fighting beside me than some guy that thinks pies are effective weapons, or a guy that craps all over himself. Why don't you come back with me?

Viridia doesn't break stride.

I appreciate that, Zebra-12. I really do. But it seems like no matter how hard I fight, the Halls always abandons me. Maybe The Sword was right. Maybe I do need to find my own way.

I'm sorry you feel that way. If you really feel like you have to leave, just know that if you ever need help, no matter what, even if it's some crazy magical or alien thing, you can always call on me. I will throat chop or headshot whoever you need me to.
