You Are a Monster

Fujimaru 1: (Something's touching my cheek...)

Narration: I felt something that was both cold and warm... Something between hard and soft...

Narration: It felt...rough...

Fujimaru 1: (Something is grasping my finger...)

Narration: It felt like a bottomless chasm...just waiting to swallow me whole...

Narration: It felt damp...

???: How boring...

???: Ah, now it's crying out saying it can wait no longer. My hair...my evil...is shamelessly driveling...

???: If you do not wake up soon, I may really eat you...

Fujimaru 1: (WHA...!?!?!?)

Fujimaru 1: ...Where am I...?

Gorgon: ...Hmph. So you have awoken. That was a close call for you.

Fujimaru 1: There are scale marks on my cheek!?

Fujimaru 2: There's a snake chewing on my finger!?

Gorgon: If you're disappointed that I spared your life rather than relieved...

Gorgon: ...then tell me that you lament having missed the opportunity to merge with me and melt into sweet oblivion.

Gorgon: It's not too late to speak up. Don't you fret. I am always hungry.

Fujimaru 1: Oh, no, no, no...no. Don't worry about me.

Fujimaru 2: Oh, uh, thanks, but I'm...fine...

Gorgon: Mmm. What...is this place?

Gorgon: I just found myself here with you sleeping beside me. You're my Master. Do you know what is happening?

Fujimaru 1: This has happened to me a few times...

Fujimaru 2: Probably a dream, or your unconscious or something...

Gorgon: ...? What do you mean? Explain more in detail.

Gorgon: Hehe...hahahaha! A dream. A dream? Of mine!? Oh you ARE funny...

Fujimaru 1: That's...funny?

Gorgon: Of course it is. Look around you. See this cold, empty world.

Gorgon: It's so dark... Not a mote of light to be seen, nor a sign of life anywhere.

Gorgon: Your lungs are filled with dark and ominous air. What dread sights you can see are most sinister.

Gorgon: The cold floor is damp, like a demon's entrails, and eagerly awaits you to collapse and die...

Gorgon: Its hideous walls stifle you, waiting to close around you like a coffin.

Gorgon: There is nothing at all good here. A true nightmare for any human. A being of pure despair and evil...that is what I am.

Gorgon: Ah... This place is a true reflection of my nature...utterly monstrous!

Gorgon: I certainly could not argue if you said this was a reflection of who I am within. All I can do is laugh at this! Hahahaha!

Fujimaru 1: You're talking nonsense again...

Fujimaru 2: Maybe there's a field of flowers over there...

Gorgon: ... I've always wondered. What do you think of me, truly?

Gorgon: Now more than ever, you fail to understand my nature, which makes this a good opportunity to teach you.

Gorgon: I am...evil. That is all.

Gorgon: The third sister of a certain family, destined to become a monster. That is all I am.

Gorgon: As my power goes beyond any mere common evil, some may even call me the mother of Demonic Beasts.

Gorgon: Yet you do not fear me... Why?

Fujimaru 1: We don't have any trouble communicating...

Fujimaru 2: You seem to understand what I say...

Gorgon: ...If communication is all you require, your bar is quite...low.

Gorgon: And even that is only possible because, at this moment, I exist in a state between my forms as a goddess and monster.

Gorgon: I honestly do not understand why I was summoned in this state...

Gorgon: Let me make myself clear. I am not a goddess. I am a monster. I am a divinity who turned evil.

Gorgon: That's why you–

Fujimaru 1: What's that voice!?

Fujimaru 2: Something's coming!

Gorgon: Hah... I am the mother of Demonic Beasts. I devour even other evils. It would not surprise me to know there are a few lurking within me.

Gorgon: At least it may be amusing to watch whatever hungry beasts lurk here devour you.

Fujimaru 1: I'd appreciate it if you'd help me out...

Gorgon: Shut up. I don't care what you want.

Gorgon: But... I have no intention of feeding the other evils that work within me in this dream of mine.

Gorgon: Letting them feast on your flesh would be a waste. Besides, I happen to feel like exercising just now.

Gorgon: Consider yourself lucky. You can cower before me once we finish here.

Gorgon: Now, look upon my form and learn...

Gorgon: Learn that the being you thought you could merely talk with is a monster who will turn your stomach!


Gorgon: Hahaha...what do you think!? Did you see my terrible serpent form!?

Fujimaru 1: Thanks! You saved me!

Gorgon: That's not what I'm talking about! That's not what you should be saying!

Gorgon: You should be terrified! You should be soiling yourself! You should be begging me not to eat you!

Gorgon: This is the time to beg for your life!

Fujimaru 1: So, I'm thinking leaving would be a good idea...

Fujimaru 2: I don't think we should stay long...

Gorgon: Ungh... This human...is unbelievable...!

Gorgon: Argh! Fine! So!? Do you have any idea how to escape!?

Fujimaru 1: I don't, but let's just keep going.

Gorgon: Hmph. Are you saying we should simply head in that direction?

Gorgon: The single, obvious way out in a place steeped in nothing but evil on all sides?

Gorgon: I suspect that will only lead us to a hell far worse than the one we find ourselves in now.

Gorgon: But you willingly walk headlong into peril...and you are even willing to peek into the underbelly of the hideous monster I am?

Fujimaru 1: I'm sure there are parts of yourself you don't want anyone seeing...

Fujimaru 2: We've got to go that way to get out, sorry.

Gorgon: Silence. It seems you value neither your life nor your sanity.

Gorgon: Perhaps you will realize what they were worth once you've lost them. Hehe.

Gorgon: Very well. I'm intrigued.

Gorgon: I shall watch your final moments and mock them to the very end. You may meet your end without fear. Hahaha.

Gorgon: ...Hold it right there. Are you a fool?

Gorgon: Did you not think that carelessly venturing out might mean your death? If you simply perished, I would be robbed of my chance to watch a demon devour you.

Gorgon: Just stand behind me and follow me, scum. Unbelievable...

Fujimaru 1: (She might get angry again if I thank her...)


Gorgon: I can feel the evil presence growing stronger. It certainly doesn't bother me, but you–

Fujimaru 1: ...?

Gorgon: Tsk. You're fine? Disappointing. Do you have no consideration for how your whimpering and looks of terror would keep me entertained on this dull journey?

Gorgon: Don't you know? Human suffering is my greatest pleasure.

Gorgon: Seeing, hearing, and tasting human suffering are my favorite things to do...

Gorgon: That terror, oh it makes me drool in anticipation. There is no better seasoning for my meal.

Fujimaru 1: Is that because...you're an Avenger?

Gorgon: ...What a silly thing to say.

Gorgon: That class was forced upon me when I was summoned as a Servant.

Gorgon: But...you're probably right. Your absurd question jogged my memory.

Fujimaru 1: ...Memory of what?

Gorgon: Rage!

Gorgon: Yes...I may truly be an Avenger. The desire for revenge does indeed burn within my Spirit Origin.

Gorgon: But...revenge against what? Whatever is it that I hate so much?

Gorgon: The unknown is what infuriates me, and it has led me to kill and devour all living things I encounter.

Gorgon: That, at least, I find fulfilling, all the more so if the victim is someone I loathe.

Gorgon: Heh...a monster who doesn't even know who deserves her vengeance...

Gorgon: Of all the Heroic Spirits you employ, I must be the most bizarre and horrible!

Fujimaru 1: That's not true...

Gorgon: Tsk. I've said too much. Forget it.

Gorgon: Either way, the stench of evil is getting stronger here. Something is bound to happ–

Fujimaru 1: I-it got dark all of a sudden!

Gorgon: Quiet.

Gorgon: Hmph. I can hardly see... Even my own eyes cannot see through...the darkness within me...

Gorgon: ... Fine. For now...

Fujimaru 1: And something touched me!!!

Gorgon: I said keep quiet. That's just my hair. Hold on to it and don't let go.

Gorgon: If you annoy it, it may bite off a finger or two. If you want to live, deal with it. Let's go.

Fujimaru 1: (I hope she's only kidding...)

Gorgon: ... There's something up ahead...

Gorgon: ...! Is...that...

Gorgon: My older sisters...

Gorgon: And that's...

Gorgon: Me!!!

Gorgon: Wait. Stop. What are you doing?

Gorgon: No...what are you...trying to show me!?

Gorgon: ...!

Gorgon: ...

Gorgon: Ah, I see.

Gorgon: So this is a dream to show me what might have been!!!

Fujimaru 1: What was that...?

Gorgon: ...Let me ask you. What did you just see?

Fujimaru 1: Uh...I don't know, it was all fuzzy...

Gorgon: I see. That's a relief.

Gorgon: Even if you did see something or THINK you saw something, don't ask. I'll kill you if you do.

Fujimaru 1: But...

Fujimaru 2: I can still see the other Gorgon.

???: ...

Gorgon: Hmph. I'll let that one slide. That's only the “me” I see in my dreams.

Gorgon: And that...that is... Hahaha! All the more reason to kill it!

Fujimaru 1: You're going to kill it!?

Gorgon: Of course. That being is the center of the evil that has flooded this realm. My body...my every instinct...cries out for that thing's blood!

Gorgon: (Instinct...that's right...instinct.)

Gorgon: (If that is true...)

Gorgon: (Is that what defines my existence? Is that how I will end up? Is it telling me to seek revenge...)

Gorgon: (...against the humans and world that led me here...?)

Gorgon: (Hehe...hahaha!!!)

Gorgon: (Who cares? Even if that were true, my purpose does not change. I am not wrong.)

Gorgon: (I devour what I wish. I kill what I wish. That is the essence of my very being!)

Gorgon: Ah, of course. Of course. In the end...this is all monsters are able to do!


Gorgon: The darkness is starting to clear... Hehehe... Oh, that was satisfying!

Gorgon: And yet...that was no more than a shadow of my past and future. I know just how pointless it is.

Fujimaru 1: ?

Gorgon: Hah! That vacant look... I can see you do not understand. But I do.

Gorgon: What would you call something that is both satisfying and completely pointless?

Gorgon: ...Amusement.

Gorgon: I had an amusing dream. If how I feel now is any indication...I would say it was a sweet dream.

Gorgon: Let me reiterate: I am a monster.

Gorgon: Killing that monster–that other me–and bathing in its blood was exhilarating. I found that dream...amusing.

Gorgon: Knowing that...do you still want something like me in your Chaldea?

Fujimaru 1: Of course.

Gorgon: Why? I've told you time and time again, and you still don't get it!? I am no Heroic Spirit! I AM A MONSTER!

Fujimaru 1: Whatever you are, you are here now.

Fujimaru 2: You answered my call...

Gorgon: ...You are mistaken.

Gorgon: Even I do not know why I was summoned. It must have been some kind of accident.

Fujimaru 1: Even if it's an accident or a mistake, I'm happy.

Fujimaru 2: Thank you for coming to Chaldea.

Gorgon: I said...you...!

Gorgon: (Sigh) So annoying. Even my hunger has dissipated.

Gorgon: ...Hmph. It's almost time to wake up. I failed to devour the moron before me.

Gorgon: ...

Gorgon: Perhaps it is the same for humans, but I will likely forget this most amusing dream of mine.

Gorgon: And if you don't want me to remember that I failed to devour you...

Gorgon: Do not ever mention what happened in this dream should you recall it. For your own safety.

Gorgon: Hmph.

Fujimaru 1: Oh.

Mash: What's wrong, Senpai?

Gorgon: ...! (Silent pressure)

Fujimaru 1: ...

Gorgon: ... (Look that says, “Good. Keep quiet.”)

Mash: ...?

Stheno: Very suspicious, don't you think, “me?”

Euryale: Yes. They were exchanging knowing glances with each other, “me.”

Stheno: Hehe...our foolish younger sister, who's three times the size of the one we're used to seeing...the BBB (Big Big Big) Mountain...

Stheno: What in the world do you think transpired between her and Master last night? I am so curious.

Euryale: Yes. We must pry it out of her...down to the last juicy detail.

Euryale: Privacy? What's that? We had no such thing on our island.

Gorgon: Older sisters...!?

Stheno & Euryale: Fess up. Right now. Come on...hurry up...spill it...!

Gorgon: M-Master! Remember that we had planned a training session in the simulator!?

Gorgon: Let's get going! It's important! If I don't get exercise, I'll get rusty! Now, please excuse us!

Stheno: She's fleeing with Master! Does that mean something really...is there some truth behind what we think happened between them!?

Euryale: Hold it right there! Do you think you can get away with keeping secrets from your older sisters!? You big, giant fool of a sister! Wait up!

Mash: Wh-what just happened?

Fou: Fou, fooou!
