[Well, time for another goodbye. Pit is there, grabbing everything they're going to be taking with them, trying very hard to keep a stuff upper lip and smile for everyone - and failing. His goddess floats around, noticeably more calm, with a pleasant smile. All's end that ends well, after all.]

It has been a pleasure. You all are the kind of humans you only find once every few millenia.
Well, guys... [Pit's voice fails for a moment] it-it's time for goodbye. Lady Palutena says she doesn't know how long it... it will be until she can open another portal. So it's goodbye for a long time. [Pit clearly has prepared this beforehand. That's not how he usually speaks] It's, it's been really fun, and... I'll miss you all. Please take care, okay?
Oh boo hoo. [And here's Viridi for the mood breaker] It's not like they're all going to die or anything. This is your stupid happy ending you fought so hard for, Pit! At least have the decency to look happy!
Shut up, Viridi! Don't you have any feelings?!
What, for leaving this pack of losers? No way.
Is that why you spent almost all your remaining power to help their planet before we went? It's going to take you centuries to be back in full shape after all those stunts, you know.

[Pit manages to laugh a bit through the tears. Still, he probably could do with a goodbye hug or twelve. Want to help?]

[...and while all this partying and such is going on, Viridi is nowhere to be seen nearby else. The reason is that she's a good distance away, in a quickly sprouting forest. All around, the plants looks like a video put in fast forward. She, however, is focused in a person nearby, even smaller than herself. She seems... unusually satisfied.]

Very good, Lucas. Very good! You're getting it pretty quickly. Now try helping that flower grow. She already wants to. You just have to give her a push.

[Indeed, there is a little kid there, with her, looking as focused as only a little kid can be he tries to do it, purple glow around his hands. He's clearly doing magic.]

[Want to happen around to comment, cheer... or if you're Cora, probably fume?]

[The world has been saved, hopefully for the last time in a long time. The celebrations - and the mourning - have started, and in a lot of places are still continuing. But the victory isn't the only thing to celebrate - and with a lot of help, and a lot of favours, Laura and Lily have extended an invitation to the Chalice crew, past and present, to join them. If you were nearby, chances are the invitation was hand-delivered by a dutiful Servbot.]

1. The setup
[With the looming deadline of the closing portals, things move quickly! Invitations are sent, travel is arranged, a venue is prepared. What had been the White Chalice's Arboretum - now an open-air grove in what's set to become a lush forest - is the site of the ceremony itself, while the celebrations afterwards will take place in Gucun. There's a lot to be done to make ready. Are you helping, or seeking out one of the brides beforehand?]

2. The ceremony
[It's only fitting that Captain Smith should officiate. He's waiting at an arch set up by the flowerbeds of the Arboretum, where the happy couple met, where Laura's tended her memorial to her friends from before the Chalice and to those who've passed on since. Between the Kwan daughters, Epimetheus, and a brace of Servbots you shouldn't have any trouble finding your seat, even if Xue Yi is a little preoccupied ensuring Prometheus behaves. There's some time before the wedding party arrive, to talk amongst yourselves - or with some of the other guests present, who include Laura's overwhelmed-looking parents!]

3. The reception
[Of course, the real point of a wedding is the party afterwards! There's food, drink, and music - Miki pulled some strings, and Pit's showing how Skyworld does catering. After the recent battle, perhaps this is a chance to see some long-absent faces in more peaceful circumstances, or to say goodbye. Or are you just here for the embarrassing speeches?]

[This is a joint mingle post, open to dropped and retired characters as well! For all prompts, please specify whether it's Laura/Lily you want to talk reply, or others!]

Man, I'm so excited! We have almost beat all the bad guys already, Lady Palutena! Just a bit more, and then celebration party!

[Well, someone is in high spirits even though he's packing]

Indeed. Make sure you don't forget anything, though. Did you get your toothbrush? Spare crown? Feather polish?

Geez, Lady Palutena, I'm not a cherub anymore, you know. I can pack on my own.

[Pit and Palutena chat merrily while packing stuff. It should be noted that Pit seems to be "requisitioning" a bunch of the kitchen supplies, tossing all sorts of into a huge green bag bigger than himself]

Hmmmmm... think anyone would mind if we took the oven? It's so much handier than the cookery at Skyworld, I kinda wanna bring it when I leave.

They were just going to dump this module, so far a I'm concerned, knock yourself out.

Point. Alle-hop! [And he pulls the large overn out of its socket and tosses it into the bag as well. Angelic scrounging in progress, please mind your head]


[And while everyone is packing, what is Viridi doing? Well, she walks into the Arboretum with a grumpy face, smacking one of the automated systems taking care of preparing the Arboretum for offload into the wall while she's doing so.]

Scram, pests. You'd just ruin half of it. Good thing I'm here. Sending robots to do this. Pft.

[She then stands at the very center of the Arboretum, she slams her staff against the ground, which trembles in sympathy. The alarms go off on principle, but she doesn't seem to care. Instead, she breathes, and raises her hands, filling the entire area with amber-colored light]

Earth, RISE!

[And with a huge shake and a deafening CRACK sound, the entirety of the dirt and ground in the arboretum breaks loose and begins floating, a small flying island full of trees. It then begins to maneuver outward, with the chibi goddess at the helm.

Marvel, go WTF, point out that Viridi is kind of making off with our Arboretum, panic because you were caught on the Arboretum as this happened?]

[So, Palutena and Viridi haven't been seen as much in the last days. Whatever could they be plotting? Well, that's answered today, as the image of Palutena appears in several of the monitors around White Chalice]

Good morning everyone. Friendly neighbourhood goddess here with a little message.

Just get to the point already.

So, as you know, we just barely defeated Hades last time-

-you mean *I* barely defeated Hades last time-

-but he took out our only way to kill him for good. Which, as I'm sure you understand, is a big problem, since Viridi's seal is going to end up weakening at some point and then we're in big trouble. So Viridi and I have been thinking, and we have a plan.

Between the two of us, we can make a portal back into our world. I'm bringing Pit back here and taking him to see Dyntos.

For those watching at home and not paying attention, Dyntos is the God of Craftsmen. He made those Three Sacred Treasures Pit installed into Cherubot. Also, he's a cranky old shut-in.

That is a pretty disrespectful way to refer to the most powerful of the gods, Viridi.

But also a true one.

I can give you that. In any case, we are going to try and ask him to make Pit some new Sacred Treasures. Knowing him, it's unlikely to be that easy, though. But he enjoys making stuff, and Hades is a destroyer, so I think I can probably negotiate him into making us some things. It's worth a shot.

We'll probably start soon. Sooner the better, after all. If anyone wants to come with Pit, to help, it'd be welcome.

Who knows, you might get an upgrade! Or a laser to the butt. That's a possibility too.

[OOC: There'll probably be a log a few days from now with Pit meeting Dyntos, but that will only be to the ones who have chosen to go, obviously. People with any kind of CR who want to come help Pit whatever trials Dyntos has in store for him will be definitely welcome, and it could serve as an excuse for an upgrade if you are thinking of one. If there's no interest, I'll probably just offsceen it, though]
goddess_duet: How are you even this dumb human (Viridi What)
[personal profile] goddess_duet

[A short time after the latest mission, you might find a rather unusual sight walking the Chalice's corridors...]

So this is the cave you humans live in? Ugh. It's so ugly. How can you live with so little life around you? It's all metal and sharp corners.

I have no idea how Palutena stands it.

[Yup. It's Viridi. Wait, what the hell is Viridi doing here? The blonde goddess is just walking around with her staff like she owned the place. Want to intercept the former enemy?]


[It seems the tiny goddess has found the Arboretum, and is looking at it.]

Now THIS is more like it. An island of life in the middle of all that lifeless machinery.

[You might notice that as she walks, under her feet flowers sprout, withered plants turn green again, and even the grass grows taller and healthier] I guess there must be someone in this entire ship who doesn't have nails for brains. I'm going to rest here a bit. I have SUCH a headache.

[She then taps a tree, which bends down some branches and makes a soft place for her to lay down and have a little peace. Want to bother and/or share her place?]

[Warning note: Viridi has been enormously depowered by her stunt, so she's at about a tenth of her usual power. This means she's still about as powerful as Palutena, and a lot grumpier, because she's in a terrible mood today. Approach with care if you don't want to end up turned into a pumpkin for the rest of the day!]
