[With the satellite defunct and Vigagi of the Inspectors eliminated one would have expected a little more cheer. Especially since Vlaska was reunited with his beloved owner. But for every happy result there's one that renders the victory a bittersweet one.]
[Germogen, Lev and Akilina. Three members of the Bronya team had died during the engagement. The first had perished defending Herb from an attack by Vigagi. The other two sacrificed themselves to save Natasha and Vlaska from certain death - giving the two a chance to live. A last present from the pair as they were consumed by the overwhelming surge of energy Vlaska unleashed in order to fell the Inspector.]
[Right now he lay by Natasha's leg as she rests in the Chalice infirmary - her hand resting lightly on his head. Maksim is close by, watching Starvengers... albeit with less of the wild enthusiasm he showed before, and Genya was just lying on a gurney, arms folded and eyes shut.]
[Do you talk to the cat? Do you discuss the events that had occurred with others?]
 (Frontdated a few days later) [The Farewell]
[There's a shuttle preparing to leave. Loaded up on it are the remains of the Bronya units as well as the surviving Pilots. Maksim and Genya were waiting by the doors of the shuttle as Natasha carried Vlaska towards it. She paused for a moment as Vlaska raised a paw to her and gave her a look with his vivid green eyes. The russian mechanic had a small smile when she realized what he wanted to do, gently letting him to the ground as he looked to you.]
[Once again he has his collar on. It looked different in a way.]
Friends... thank you. For everything.
Thank you for letting me stay here... for helping me so much...
[He walks up close, brushing himself to your leg and looking up at you happily before looking back at the trio waiting to leave all bearing varying levels of smile from big grin to subdued smirk and gentle, motherly smile.]
And for helping me find my family...
We're going now... to see the world... to make it a better place like we used to before the bad men used us.
Maybe one day we'll meet again.
