Trial Quest - Arthur Pendragon

一一一一Someday, The Day of Salvation for this Planet Will Come

Narration: ...

Narration: Well, crap...

Narration: This all started right after I got separated from the Servants during our investigation of a Singularity.

Narration: I thought that as long as I could stay in touch with Chaldea, I'd be able to meet back up with everyone...

Narration: The Chaldea staff could've told me my coordinates, or even where the Servants all are...

Narration: But every single thing seemed to go wrong. I tried contacting Chaldea, but got no response.

Narration: I should've heard Mash calling for me. Instead, all I can hear now is...

Narration: ...

Narration: ...If I had to describe it in colors, I guess it's red and black. It howls like a beast hungry for blood.

Narration: I'm in a tight spot here. What Mystic Code did I put on before we left?

Narration: If I could at least cast Gandr, I'd shoot one off. Then, regardless of how that goes, I'll just book it as fast as I can!

Narration: ...But, will that really work?

Narration: Sweat trickles down my cheek. My mouth trembles. Think. Think. But that beast doesn't look like it'll give me time to think...

Narration: I'm taking a chance. Whether it'll work out or not...

B:???: ...Are you all right? You should stand back.

Fujimaru 1: (Turn around)

Knight: Hah!!!

Fujimaru 2: (Step back)

B:???: Good. Right there's fine.

Knight: Hmph!

Fujimaru 1: (Exhale)

Knight: ...You've got some guts.

Knight: You watched that attack and didn't so much as flinch.

Knight: Do you have some knowledge of swordplay? Or, I suppose you have been through more than your share of trials...

Knight: Whoops, sorry. Looks like we don't have much time to chitchat.

Fujimaru 2: ...Thanks. You saved me.

Knight: You're welcome. Are you hurt, brave stranger?

Knight: You're certainly no ordinary person. If you were, you'd have fainted when you stared that beast down.

Knight: I'd love to talk to you more in detail... but I don't have the time.

Knight: A herd of beasts and their king are coming this way. I doubt we can reach a peaceful resolution.

Knight: If you don't mind, would you fight with me? You seem to be the type who's strong enough to do that.

Knight: Are you by chance a mage? Well, at least you don't seem to be completely lost in a battle of magecraft.

Knight: That magical energy enveloping you must be Command Spells. Are you a Master?

Knight: Well then, you must have some experience dealing with Mystics, which are so far beyond simple magecraft.

Knight: ...They're here. Sorry, I'm just short on time. So, would you give me your answer?

Fujimaru 1: Let's fight together.

Fujimaru 2: I'd appreciate it if you'd let me!

Knight: Thank you. Now then, let's take this horde of beasts down together!


Knight: Good. We managed to escape for now.

Knight: I knew it! You're a skilled mage. I'm no expert on magecraft, but I can at least say this:

Knight: You have the power to fight. I don't just mean the skills necessary to fight...

Knight: You possess a sword. A sword that dwells within your heart, that is.

Fujimaru 1: ...

Knight: Hey. Did something happen?

Knight: You look a little unfocused. Did you use too much of your magical energy?

Fujimaru 1: Um...

Fujimaru 2: You look familiar.

Knight: I believe this is the first time we've met. Based on what you're wearing, you must be from the 20th century.

Knight: Or perhaps from the beginning of the 21st century. You may have had an opportunity to meet me...

Knight: No, I don't remember.

Knight: Hey. You didn't come here alone, did you?

Knight: You must have gotten separated from your group. Am I right?

Fujimaru 1: Yes.

Knight: I see. Okay, got it.

Fujimaru 2: Exactly!

Knight: Haha. That's the spirit!

Knight: Okay. I will stay with you until you find your companions.

Knight: Don't worry. We'll find them soon enough.



Mordred: And where the hell have YOU been!? Why'd you wander off like that!?

Mordred: Don't think for one second you're gettin' off easy just 'cause you came back in one piece. Next time, don't you dare wander off without telling me!

Fujimaru 1: Sorry!

Mordred: ...Ugh.

Fujimaru 2: I suddenly lost contact with Chaldea...

Mordred: Oh yeah, Mash did mention something like that.

Mordred: Um...the connection is maybe not so great.

Mordred: I mean, yeah, it's pretty damn cool we can communicate in real time with Chaldea, no matter where or when we are...

Mordred: ...but it's kinda useless once we start runnin' into weird magical anomalies and crap like Bounded Fields, huh?

Mordred: Hunting for Singularity remnants... I figured we could forget about them and they'd disappear on their own.

Mordred: Or...has it gotten so bad that it was on its way to becoming a full-blown Singularity?

Mash: Yes, you are right. It was on the brink of becoming a miniature Singularity...

Mash: The swordsman that Senpai encountered was likely caught up in whatever was going on.

Mordred: Oh, the guy who saved Master.

Mordred: We didn't see his face... He left right before we met up with Master.

Mordred: Aw, c'mon. I can't believe he's managed to survive wandering around this place alone. Who was he?

Mash: His name was...

Fujimaru 1: Now that you mention it...

Fujimaru 2: I didn't ask.

Mordred: He left without giving his name? Hah. What a big shot. I can't put my finger on it, but something about him sort of pisses me off.

Mash: U-um... Regardless of whether he's human or a Rogue Servant...

Mash: He had amazing combat power. He was able to keep up with those giant creatures.

Mash: According to Senpai...he was a hooded man who looked like a knight?

Mordred: Huh? A hooded knight? That means he's not from that Singularity, to say the least.

Fujimaru 1: He was like a knight, or maybe a swordsman...

Fujimaru 2: He's like a knight in shining armor.

Mordred: What the heck?

Mash: Senpai mentioned that the man's attire reminded [♂him /♀her] of the Knights of the Round Table. Isn't that right, Senpai?

Mordred: What? Us? But I don't remember anyone with a hood.

Mordred: I mean, Gareth wore a helmet all the time. And that jackass Percival didn't have anything either...

Mordred: Or...uh, did he wear a helmet? Like, when he was super serious? ...No, wait... Er, maybe that was Palamedes?

Mordred: ...Nope, nope, it was definitely a helmet.

Mordred: So no. None of us wore hoods.

Mordred: Well...maybe when we were out on an expedition and it rained, I guess... Still, though...

Mash: I see...

Mordred: Master, what type of weapon did he use?

Fujimaru 1: A sword inlaid with gold and silver.

Fujimaru 2: I couldn't see what it was at first...

Mordred: ...No. It can't be.

Mash: ???

Jekyll: Do you have a minute, Master? I was rechecking the calculations on the Rayshift coordinates...

Jekyll: And I found some points that concern me. Actually, the one who made the discovery was Mr. Babbage.

Jekyll: Anyway, I'm looking for Miss Da Vinci. Would you happen to know where she–

Mash: Oh, Jekyll. Da Vinci should be in Lab 2.

Mordred: Hey! We're talking about something important, you nerd! We didn't call you, and Da Vinci's not here either!

Jekyll: Sorry. I didn't mean to interrupt... Hey! Ow, ow, ow!!!

Mordred: Stop overreacting. I just gave you a little poke.

Mordred: Ugh. This is why you're such a loser.

Jekyll: Well, that was actually... Ungh... No, never mind. Nothing. Haha.

Arash: Hey, Fujimaru. Good, good. Looks like you came back in one piece.

Arash: You Rayshifted out somewhere to get rid of a small Singularity, right? I heard all about it.

Arash: Sorry I couldn't help. So... Yeah. Make sure to take me with you next time, okay?

Arash: You'll never get lost again with me around. I've got good eyes.

Fujimaru 1: I did get lost a bit...

Fujimaru 2: But it was an accident!

Arash: Haha. I see. Well, I'm not blaming you or anything.

Arash: But, well, why don't you tell me about it? Hearing you tell me about your own travels might be nice for a change.

Arash: I actually want to hear, directly from you, who you met.

Arash: ...

Arash: ...I knew it. You met HIM.

Arash: I get it. I guess this is what you would call fate.

Arash: I didn't think he was in the Throne of Heroes. No... He isn't... So? What's your take on it?

Fujimaru 1: Eh? Huh?

Fujimaru 2: Arash, what are you talking about?

Arash: Sorry for being so cryptic. My bad, Master. I'm really not sure what to say...

Arash: Umm...

Arash: ...

Arash: Well, I guess it's not entirely impossible. Yeah, yeah. Looks like I'll be able to enjoy my drink tonight!

Arash: Hahahaha. So he's still out there, somewhere, fighting!

Fujimaru 1: Explain!

Fujimaru 2: What the heck!?

Arash: Haha! Come on, don't say that! Ha... But it was him...

Fujimaru 1: Arash!!!

Fujimaru 2: (Stare at him silently)

Arash: ...O-okay.

Arash: Well, yeah. I know! If there's ever a chance, you'll see him again! Yeah!

Arash: Hey, hey. Wait! Quit hitting me! It doesn't hurt, but for some reason I feel bad, like I did something wrong.

Cú Chulainn: What's going on, Arash? What, are you having your very own drinking party right in the middle of the hallway?

Cú Chulainn: Oh hey. Master's here too. What's up?

Arash: Ah, the Child of Light!

Arash: Oh, it's nothing. Haha, this may actually have to do with you!

Arash: You should keep this a secret from the pharaoh, the valkyrie lady, and the alchemist.

Cú Chulainn: ...Huh?


Knight: ...

Knight: I thought there was something sinister this time around...but I don't sense the noxious gas of L or the lingering scent of R.

Knight: Things aren't going as planned. I guess I have no choice but to search more thoroughly.

Knight: ...

Knight: Yeah. It'll be all right, Merlin. I will accomplish my goal, and then return to where I belong.

Knight: Soon. One of these days.


Narration: A voice hailed me, asking me to wait.

Narration: Why? I turned around, surrounded by a field of golden grass.

Narration: I thought I had arrived at the place where I belonged. After all, by now my time as king was no more than a distant memory.

Narration: The time I spent fighting for Britain... Ten years of bravery and honor, charging from battlefield to battlefield with the Knights of the Round Table.

Narration: And that's not all: even the time I spent living as a solitary knight after that...

Narration: ...and yes, even that two-week-long Holy Grail War in the Far East at the end of the 20th century–one fought over a false Grail...

Narration: ...all for the sake of a girl who taught me things I never would have learned in my life as a king.

Narration: All of it, no more than a distant memory now. That begs the question...

Knight: Why stop me now?

Knight: I just arrived here. I did what I needed to do, and ended everything.

Knight: I finally reached the place...the promised place. Just as the legend to be passed down through the ages said.

Knight: I thought I was going to form a contract with the world...

Knight: But that is not how it went. I got my answer, and then my life ended.

Female Mage: ...Hehe.

Female Mage: You have the appearance of a young man, yet you speak like an old man.

Female Mage: No, I wonder. My king. Britain's eternal king and wielder of the sacred sword...

Female Mage: There must be many things you have left undone. I'm sure you know already, right?

Female Mage: You have yet to truly and finally defeat that which you are destined to destroy.

Female Mage: Once in 1991 A.D. Once more in 1999 A.D.

Female Mage: Twice you struck it down, but that devourer of cities is persistent. It's not over yet.

Knight: That's...

Female Mage: Hehehe. Yes, exactly!

Female Mage: Great child of Uther... My beloved red dragon! That's right, this situation is terribly irregular!

Female Mage: Yes, it is a state of emergency so severe, you were roped into this the instant you arrived at Avalon!

Female Mage: It should have ended the second time. But somehow, it's back for round three! It's unfathomable!

Female Mage: Hehe. Perhaps an Original Species awakened somewhere?

Knight: ...

Female Mage: Really, I must say! It's a truly rotten twist of fate! After all, you're not supposed to be here.

Female Mage: Now's not the time for you to come knocking on my door. It can't be now. You're ten years too early.

Knight: Wait. Merlin, what are you talking–

Female Mage: You still need to continue your journey. Whether it be in your world, or in another universe.

Female Mage: You may travel through dimensions or even phenomena. Anywho, yeah, hang in there.

Female Mage: Why? How, you ask? Well... Yeah, I wonder... I can't say for sure.

Female Mage: This could be a deep-seated curse put on you as the wielder of a sacred sword, or it could be something that was sprung on you right before a long break...

Female Mage: ...It may be the great Grand Order.

Knight: ...Grand...Order...?

Female Mage: Either way, you need to leave here immediately. And that's also why I stopped you. Listen...

Female Mage: I'm going to say this again: your journey has not ended.

Female Mage: It can't end. For her sake as well.

Female Mage: What did you feel from her? Light? Radiance? Affection? Or all of them?

Female Mage: They might all end up in a whirlpool of gluttony. If you don't continue your journey, that is.

Knight: !!

Knight: Merlin, wait! Explain yourself! I've been wondering about this for a while, but you're too cryptic!

Female Mage: What the heck? That's mean. Oh well. Come on, hurry up and get going!

Female Mage: You'll get to meet me face-to-face next time! This time, too bad!

Female Mage: My king, the last Pendragon! May your new journey be blessed! We shall meet again!

Female Mage: If you meet another me in a parallel universe, be kind to them!


Knight: ...

Knight: I have yet to meet another you, Merlin, but I haven't forgotten what you said. For now.

Knight: ...This is yet another world that has gone to ruin.

Knight: Pruning Theoretical Phenomenon, was it? No, destruction and pruning have nothing to do with each other.

Knight: I suppose scenes like this are commonplace for any phenomenon that gets pruned.

Knight: The decay of a civilization... The destruction of a city... No matter how many times I see it, I still can't get used to it.

Knight: But then's still too early for me to give up. Right, Merlin?

Knight: ...If only there were some survivors.

Knight: Hm?

Knight: !!

Knight: A person...out of nowhere!? You're...!?

Knight: You're that stranger I met earlier! So you're someone who can travel through time and space, too?

Knight: A-are you all right? It looked like you fell from a ways above the ground...

Knight: No, before you answer that, you need to know that this land's atmosphere is poisonous to living creatures!

Knight: Do you have a gas mask or a Mystic Code? If you don't, take one of my talismans.

Fujimaru 1: ...H-hello.

Fujimaru 2: ...My head's spinning.

Knight: ...!

Fujimaru 1: Where am I?

Knight: You've awoken.

Knight: What a surprise. Well, there's no shortage of those today.

Knight: First, you appeared out of thin air. Second, you are somehow alive when the air is pure poison.

Knight: You're definitely full of surprises. But for the time being, as much as I'm glad you woke up...

Knight: Let me ask you this first: Are you hurt anywhere?

Fujimaru 1: I'm fine.

Fujimaru 2: I don't think anything's broken.

Knight: I see. I'm glad.

Knight: So...why did you come to a wasteland like this?

Knight: There's not much here. Actually, there are really only dangerous things here.

Knight: Do you make a habit of running headlong into danger?

Fujimaru 1: Rayshif–

Fujimaru 2: U-uh... I mean, what was it again...?

Knight: I see.

Knight: You're either holding something back or your memory is fuzzy. I won't ask questions.

Knight: But, yeah. If you're falling from the sky from out of nowhere...

Knight: ...then you're not just some lost least this time around.

Knight: (Thinking back to what happened last time, could this child have gotten caught up in my warps?)

Fujimaru 1: Did you say something?

Fujimaru 2: I think I heard something...

Knight: Uh... Well, if I try to explain, it'll just complicate things. Sorry.

Knight: No, I should at least tell you what I can. Though the ruler of this land is sure to approach me soon...

Knight: Okay. We have at least some time to talk.

Knight: Let's begin with introductions. I failed to do so last time because I was in a hurry.

Knight: My name is Arthur Pendragon.

Arthur: I was the King of Britain in the past. But now I am a mere knight.

Arthur: I am not human like you. Do you understand that?

Arthur: I'm a Heroic Spi–I am currently a Servant who possesses a Spirit Origin. Unfortunately, I have no Master.

Arthur: The wielder of the Sacred Sword of the Planet, Excalibur. Yes, my Noble Phantasm.

Fujimaru 1: The sacred sword...?

Fujimaru 2: King Arthur!?

Arthur: What an unexpected reaction.

Arthur: ...Do you, by chance, know who I am?

Arthur: I see... Chaldea... The Incineration of Humanity... The 21st century...

Arthur: A female King Arthur...

Arthur: And your name is Fujimaru. That has a nice ring to it.

Arthur: You were supposed to be able to communicate in real time with the Chaldea in 2019...

Arthur: No, I believe you. Actually, many of my questions have been answered. You must have gone through some truly difficult battles.

Arthur: ...Yes, I can feel it.

Arthur: Being a Master to one Servant is tough enough, but to be able to form contracts with multiple Servants and keep battling...

Arthur: Truly, that is an achievement that goes beyond imagining. No ordinary person could save the world, after all.

Fujimaru 1: ...You think so?

Fujimaru 2: Thank you, King Arthur.

Arthur: You're amazing. You seem to have walked an even more treacherous path than I have.

Arthur: Unless you...

Arthur: ...Ah. Maybe you...

Arthur: ...

Arthur: He mentioned... So it was you.

Fujimaru 1: He?

Fujimaru 2: Who are you talking about?

Arthur: I don't really know the specific location or era. I was there for a very, very short time relative to the other places I've visited.

Arthur: I warped before I could confirm his name. I couldn't even say goodbye to him.

Arthur: But... Yes, I still remember.

Arthur: I remember being able to see a large, red, iron bridge...


???: Well, yes. I don't mind if you think I am crazy.

???: What I am about to tell you may seem unbelievable... It does not bear any weight especially in a peaceful country like this one.

???: I wouldn't want it to bear any weight anyway. Because even if it was true, there's nothing anyone can do about it.

???: And of course it's difficult to accept...

???: That's why...

???: I'm going to talk while I imagine the astonished look on your face.

???: If things continue as they are, the world will end.

???: The world will be incinerated without ever seeing 2019. This has already been determined. It is a foregone conclusion.

???: ...What do you think? Surprised?

???: Or do you think I'm insane? Do I look like a pathetic man who's been possessed by some pessimistic delusion?

Arthur: Of course not. I believe your words.

Arthur: Your eyes must see through everything. You're not the first person I've met who has the power of Clairvoyance.

???: Thank you. Though I don't have powers of that sort.

???: Know this, O wandering king: even your sacred sword cannot prevent the future I saw.

???: The Incineration of Humanity is simply too perfect of an achievement.

Arthur: ...

???: But. But, you know...

???: If by chance the world does not end in 2018... And if you can continue your wandering journey...

???: You may be able to meet...

Arthur: Meet you again? Here?

???: No, not me.

???: If by chance everything goes well, I will likely have met my end.

???: But the person you're going to meet is someone I believe will become important to me as well.

???: Someone who could accomplish something I could never do...

???: Someone who carries love and hope... Someone who keeps aiming for tomorrow, for the sake of a yesterday that has been lost!


Fujimaru 1: Don't tell me that person is—

Arthur: Hm...

Arthur: ...It's getting near.

Arthur: I thought I could talk longer, but time's up. Looks like the ruler of this land is here.

Arthur: It's one of the sources of the decay of this time and age.

Arthur: Perhaps it's a Demonic Beast that somehow became corrupted. Or it could be a type of weapon that was created by someone and abandoned.

Arthur: Sorry to stop our talk midway. But then again, my story ends here anyway.

Arthur: Because right after that conversation, I warped somewhere else. I have no control over that.

Arthur: Nothing has changed. Regardless of what I want...

Fujimaru 1: Your situation sounds a lot like Musashi's...

Fujimaru 2: Wait. Was the person you were talking about earlier

Beast: [[File:berserkervoice1.png50px]]!

Arthur: ...Bloodlust, hostility, malice. Nothing else, huh?

Arthur: An incarnation of massacre. A device of destruction that cannot stop itself. It may not be a Beast, but it is still evil.

Arthur: You are not the Beast I am searching for. But you are still my enemy.

Arthur: I'm sorry, Fujimaru.

Arthur: It's time to battle. I'm sure our opponent will come at us with everything it has, so I cannot hold back.

Arthur: I'm sorry for dragging you into this. I will protect you with all my strength. But if it's at all possible...

Arthur: If I could ask... No, would you like to fight alongside me?

Arthur: The one who fights to save the world. You, the one to whom that man entrusted everything...

Arthur: I want to engrave the sight of you into my memory once again!

Fujimaru 1: Got it.

Fujimaru 2: And in exchange, you need to finish your story!

Arthur: Okay, that's a promise!

Arthur: Let's go. For now, you shall be my Master!

Arthur: There's no need to be connected through Command Spells. You only need to show me your resolve to save the world!

Arthur: And to go along with your dazzling actions, I shall show you the light of this planet!


Arthur: ...We're done. Good work.

Arthur: It wasn't the Beast I was looking for, but at the very least, its death should halt this place's deterioration.

Arthur: I'm not entirely clear on how all this works. But apparently this is what my journey entails.

Fujimaru 1: King Arthur, you promised.

Fujimaru 2: Please continue your story.

Arthur: Oh, right. There's something I need to tell you.

Arthur: The man I met and conversed with...

Arthur: His name was Rom–

Mash: Senpai!

Mash: Oh, thank goodness! We finally connected! Scanning your vital signs in!

Mash: Scanning... Okay, all done! Good, looks like nothing is wrong with your body!

Mash: I will begin preparations to bring you back immediately! Please hold still, Senpai!

Fujimaru 1: Mash!

Fujimaru 2: Communication is back up!?

Da Vinci: ...Uh, ahem. Hey. It's me, Da Vinci.

Da Vinci: There was a...tiny snafu in the program that handles the Rayshift coordinate calculations.

Da Vinci: It wasn't a mistake that just developed out of nowhere. It was there from the beginning. Let's just say that there was a shortcoming in one of the formulae.

Da Vinci: The result itself doesn't change. But yeah, it's a bug.

Da Vinci: That's what was causing all the problems. It was Rayshifting you, and only you, to weird coordinates.

Da Vinci: Anyway, simply put, it was just a bug. I'm sorry, really! It wasn't that I made any mistakes in the design stage; it was just me being negligent as a manager!

Da Vinci: Oh, and it's not Romani's fault either. It's my fault, since it's all under my jurisdiction. I'm really sorry!

Da Vinci: Babbage was the one who found it after doing some calculations because he had nothing better to do. I guess you really can't give those analog folks flak.

Fujimaru 1: I see... I mean, wait a minute!

Fujimaru 2: I'm in the middle of talking to King Arthur!

Mash: Huh?

Mash: Um, do you mean Altria...?

Mash: I'm only detecting you there. Is...another Servant with you?

Fujimaru 1: Eh?

Arthur: ...Seems like they cannot see me. Perhaps my Spirit Origin does not exist in your world.

Arthur: If the King Arthur you know is female, that means she's me, but not me.

Arthur: I don't exist. At least not in your world's history.

Arthur: You may need to ask Merlin for details, but yeah.

Arthur: I'm sure that's what it is.

Arthur: ...Oh, or maybe it's because my warp has already started?

Fujimaru 1: Wait!

Fujimaru 2: You were about to tell me a name...!

Arthur: You should already know. It's the same name that the beautiful lady mentioned just now.

Fujimaru 1: So it was Romani Archaman...!

Arthur: Yes, that's right.

Arthur: I firmly believe that the person he was talking about was you.

Arthur: How is he doing now? ...No, I shouldn't ask. At least not right now. Not now.

Arthur: That's why, Fujimaru...

Arthur: Instead of saying goodbye, let me say this:

Arthur: I'm glad I met you, brave child, savior of the planet under a distant sky.

Arthur: You, who inherited the will of the man I encountered during my journey.

Arthur: May your perilous journey be blessed, Fujimaru! And when we meet again under the same sky, someday, someplace...

Arthur: Let us fight alongside each other again.

Arthur: To save your world. To save tomorrow.


Da Vinci: Hm? What is it, Doctor?

Da Vinci: Hehe. I don't have as much free time as before. You see, everyone realized how useful I am.

Da Vinci: That's why I'm super busy every day. I mean, think we're taking too much of the burden of Chaldea's future onto ourselves?

Da Vinci: But that's just me complaining. Though, I don't mind sparing some time to listen to you talk.

Da Vinci: ...Hm? Would I be okay with just idle chitchat or gossip?

Da Vinci: Yeah, sure. I'm just going to work while I listen. Now come on, talk to me.

Da Vinci: Uh-huh. Oh. I see. Ah.

Da Vinci: Yeah, I guess so. Yeah. Yep.

Da Vinci: ...Eh? What? What did you just say?

Da Vinci: Before that. The thing you said before that. Something about a thing near the bridge in Fuyuki City.

Da Vinci: ...You've met the male King Arthur? Was he a Heroic Spirit? When?

Da Vinci: Before Chaldea's Summoning System was established? But that's impossible. How long ago was that?

Da Vinci: Either way, that was after Fuyuki's Grail War ended, right? Even with a tremendous amount of spiritual evocation and other powerful ceremonial magecraft...

Da Vinci: Summoning a Heroic Spirit that can converse coherently would be impossible.

Da Vinci: Besides...

Da Vinci: Hm. Wait. Something's not right.

Da Vinci: If what you're saying is true, it must be because of that! The Singularity in Fuyuki! The Greater Grail!

Da Vinci: So that reaction you had when you first saw the female King Arthur on the monitor was...

Da Vinci: ...Eh?

Da Vinci: You forgot? Completely?

Da Vinci: ...Yeah, I don't blame you. If a random man calling himself King Arthur came up to you, no one would give it much credence.

Da Vinci: Nobody would think, “Whoa, it's the real King Arthur!” And I'm sure he wouldn't stick out in your memory. But then again...

Da Vinci: You have your position to think about. You're in Chaldea, after all.

Da Vinci: ...

Da Vinci: ...Oh. I see.

Da Vinci: You say that, but the expression on your face tells me you're fondly thinking back on that day, Romani.

Da Vinci: It's nothing to be embarrassed about. Heh heh. Oh, let me guess.

Da Vinci: I bet you said something really embarrassing!

Da Vinci: Am I right?

Da Vinci: ...

Da Vinci: Hahahaha. Nope. Can't do that. You can't say you were kidding after that reaction! There's no fooling me!

Da Vinci: Just give up and tell me everything! Come on, I won't judge!

Da Vinci: It'll be all right. So what did you tell him?

Da Vinci: Eh? You made a wish? To the King Arthur you saw in Fuyuki?

Da Vinci: What did you wish for...?

Da Vinci: No. Yeah. It'll be much more interesting if you don't tell me right now.

Da Vinci: Maybe tell me tomorrow... Or maybe someday far from now...
