there are no words for how much I love this track. when the BGM kicks in both times. ;; also, if you think you spot a reference, you’re probably right~
Fire Emblem Awakening Drama CD Volume 4
Track 9: An Even More Amazing Treasure
[both Morgans groan]
Vincent: How dare you…
Victor: This is our revenge!
[kick; Morgan(M) makes a pained noise]
Morgan(F): [gasp] Morgan! Morgan, are you okay? Hang in there!
Morgan(M): [groans and sits up] Morgan… we’re… going to die here, aren’t we…? Without… making it back to our own worlds…
Morgan(F): [gasp] You can’t give up, Morgan!
[Vincent walks over]
Vincent: [amused] You look to be in pain, little kittens. It’s about time for you to go to sleep… [draws sword] FOREVER!
Laurent: O wind born amidst clouds of shifting sand, mow down those who would do evil! Elwind!
[whoosh and zip through the gate]
Vincent: [startled noise] From the Outrealm!?
Noire: AHAHAHAHA! TIME TO PLAY!
[sound of arrows whizzing through the air and embedding themselves in the wall]
Victor: [gasp] Ahh! My clothes are pinned to the wall!
Vincent: Don’t move, Victor!
Morgan(F): That’s… but it can’t be…
[BGM: Id (Return)]
Lucina: ...hear me… Can you hear me, Morgan?
Morgan(M): That voice…
Lucina: Morgan, we’ve defeated all the Risen. Thanks to you, everyone is safe and we have recovered my tiara. But there’s no point if we lose you! Please… please return safely!
Morgan(M): Ugh… Lucina… everyone…
Morgan(F): [softly] Morgan. I want you to listen to me.
Morgan(F): I noticed something a little while ago. On top of that shelf.
Morgan(M): [shifts] Ah… that’s…
Morgan(F): Can you use it? Morgan.
Morgan(M): I don’t know. But… if I’m with you, Morgan… definitely.
Morgan(F): [relieved] Yeah! I think so too! If we’re together, becoming the best tactician in the world isn’t just a dream!
Morgan(M): Like… your father.
Morgan(F): [small laugh] Yeah. Like… your mother.
Vincent: Hmph. These arrows are little more than a nuisance.
Victor: We’ll kill you for sure this time.
[both Morgans make unsettled noises]
Lucina: Morgan! It’s all right. You’re not alone. You will surely emerge victorious! I know it!
Victor: Che. The peanut gallery is so irritating.
[the gate’s buzz lowers in frequency]
Owain: Hey! The rift is closing!
Lucina: [gasp] Morgan! Everyone is waiting for you! So please… please come back to us!
[BGM: Id (Purpose)]
Morgans: Yeah! We’ll show you!
Morgan(F): We can do this!
Morgan(M): Yes! [runs forward]
[slam; Victor cries out and stumbles]
Vincent: What do you think you’re doing? That was nothing more than a body blow!
Victor: How inelegant! Haa!
[Victor strikes; Morgan(M) cries out and stumbles back]
Morgan(M): [recovering, gasps for breath] It doesn’t have to be elegant. We just needed you to let down your guard!
Morgan(F): Got it! I got the tome!
Victor: [gasp] When did you…?
Vincent: Impossible! They didn’t have time to discuss a plan!
Morgan(M): We don’t need words to communicate!
Morgans: Because we… are one and the same!
Vincent: What nonsense are you spouting?
Morgan(M): We don’t need to explain ourselves to you!
Morgan(F): Now… prepare yourselves!
Morgan(M): Tordo, Mage Knight of antiquity, heed our call!
Morgan(F): Grant us the power of holy lightning and rain judgment upon this foreign land!
Morgan(M): O golden torrent…
Morgan(M): Roar up to the heavens!
[crash of lightning; Victor and Vincent scream]
[twittering of the gate in the background]
Laurent: Ah. It seems... the rift has closed completely.
Noire: No… what do we do? Morgan…
Lucina: It’s all right.
Severa: [questioning noise]
Lucina: I heard Morgan’s voice just before the rift closed. “We’ll show you.” So it will be all right.
Severa: Do you… mean it?
Lucina: Yes. Morgan will surely return to us, no matter the distance. Let us believe that and wait.
Everyone: [uncertain sounds]
Owain: That’s… right. Morgan’s definitely all right!
Cynthia: Yeah, yeah! Morgan’s the hero who returned Lucina’s tiara! And heroes don’t die like this!
Inigo: Yeah! I think so too!
Noire: Yes. Me too.
Severa: Well… if you’re all so sure, I guess I’ll go along with it.
Gerome: [sigh] Then let’s get going.
Inigo: Going? Where?
Gerome: There’s nothing more we can do here. Just standing here is a waste of time. There’s something else we must take care of.
Laurent: Mm… that’s right. We must return the stolen items to their original owners. Do you know where they live?
Gerome: Aye. In the village a bit beyond here.
Lucina: Then let’s go to that village.
[BGM: “It appears the capital was spared the chaos.”]
Cynthia: [runs up] Okay! The jewels and dresses have been returned to their owners!
Gerome: That should be everything.
Lucina: Yes. It’s such a relief that everyone has recovered their precious belongings.
Lucina: Hm? What is it, everyone? Why are you staring?
Inigo: It’s nothing. I was just thinking, you’re back to normal!
Owain: Lucina really is a mess without her tiara!
Cynthia: Yeah, yeah! It took me a second to recognize her without it!
Lucina: Haha. You’re terrible, all of you.
Severa: You better not lose it again, okay?
Noire: That’s right. It’s full of memories of your mother... right?
Lucina: Yes. But that’s not all.
Gerome: [walks closer] Is there something else?
Lucina: All of you and Morgan put your lives on the line to recover my hair ornament. That is my precious new memory.
Lucina: This incident has once again strengthened our bonds. I am the luckiest person in the world to have friends like you. This hair ornament is a mimicry of the Hero-King’s, but compared to the one he wore, the bonds I share with you are an even more amazing treasure. [laugh]
Owain: Yeah. That much is obvious.
Inigo: We’re the best friends you could ever ask for!
Severa: And just like the tiara, you better not lose us either, okay? Lucina.
Lucina: Yes. I won’t. We were together back in our own world, and we will be together from now on, always. I cannot bear to lose any of you, not a single one. So please do not keep such secrets from me and act on your own, all right?
Owain: Oh well.
Lucina: [laugh] All right. Then let’s return to camp. It’s gotten quite late.
[they walk off, laughing and exchanging conversation]
Owain: Let’s go!
Inigo: No fair!
[Lucina takes a few steps and stops]
Lucina: Morgan. Please, return safely.
