Voltabolt: To ourselves? Vho are you?!?
*Joules, Dr. Voltabolt's sister, reveals herself.*
Joules: Don't tell me you've forgotten all about your sweet little sister now?
Voltabolt: YOU?!? You VITCH!
Voltabolt: Ve thought you vere gone! Father... Mother.. Zey looked for you for YEARS!
Voltabolt: After years of searching Zey gave up... Zey thought you vere dead and moved to another town to ezcape ze memories and ze grief...
Joules: It's their own fault! They punished me for no reason so I ran away!
Voltabolt: You blew up ze house! You almozt killed Coulomb!
Joules: That wouldn't have happened if it weren't for YOUR laughing gas! How could I have known that it was so flammable?
Voltabolt: It isn't flammable! You let your magic get out of control!
*Joules starts burning in magical blue flames.*
*Dr. Voltabolt looks up at his sister.*
Joules: I'll ask it once more... Will you help me build our own Thankstaking?
Voltabolt: No I von't! Ze good people of FalconReach vill get me out of here!
Voltabolt: Vhat is zo funny?
Joules: You mean you don't know?
Voltabolt: Know vhat?
Joules: The people of Falconreach hate you!
Voltabolt: V-vhat? No zey don't!
*Joules uses magic to show Dr. Voltabolt what the townspeople of Falconreach have been saying about him during their Thankstaking preparations, purposely omitting their fond memories of him.*
Ash: You can tell that Voltabolt isn't around. It's so quiet!
Cysero: I wonder what Volty will blow up this year!
Lim: He isn't going to blow anything up! He's at home and leaves us be!
Gretel: It's a good thing Voltabolt didn't make "adjustments" this year...
Oishii: To be honest I was getting a little tired of Voltabolt always messing things up.
*Joules' magic dissipates.*
Voltabolt: I-I thought they had aczepted me.. I had even prepared some NORMAL food as a zurprise...
Joules: Oh dear sweet brother, do you see now? We only have each other! Now, shall we begin the preparations?
*Dr. Voltabolt is hypnotized by Joules.*
Voltabolt: Give me my toolz and I vill begin!
*Joules grins; elsewhere, you have followed the trail of Volt-a-Bolts onto a path leading to Joules' factory.*
<Character>: That was the last of them!
<Character>: And my gut tells me that factory has something to do with it!
Hawkarrot: Wow! How did you figure that out, genius?
<Character>: Well I followed the bolts an-
<Character>: HEY Bird, are you sassing me?!?
Hawkarrot: I wouldn't dare to!
Hawkarrot: So do you want to send a message?
<Character>: A message?
Hawkarrot: Yes! A Message! You know... One of those things you send to people to let them know things?
<Character>: I know what a message is! But how do I know I can trust you with it?
Hawkarrot: I was trained by Aria and got specific instructions to always help you when needed!
<Character>: Now that you mention it, Aria DID tell me she was planning to set up a messaging service... But how do I know you're not lying?
Hawkarrot: What harm can I do with the message you want to sent?
<Character>: Good point... Can you please fly to Aria and let her and others know that Voltabolt was kidnapped by someone and that I followed the trail to...
<Character>: Uhm... Where am I actually?
Hawkarrot: Current Location: The Mana-armory, 2 miles to the East of Falconreach.
<Character>: Well how about that. That IS handy! Now please go and tell them!
Hawkarrot: I'm on my way!
*Hawkarrot flies towards Falconreach to deliver your message.*
<Character>: That bird was really fowl.. Well I better go ahead and investigate the factory!
*You make your way through the factory, attempting to avoid the clockwork monsters along the way, battling any you run into; deep inside the factory, Joules is using her magic on her brother, Dr. Voltabolt, to construct more clockwork monsters.*
<Character>: That's enough!
*Joules glances back towards you, continuing her spell on Dr. Voltabolt.*
Joules: Wow, you haven't changed a bit! What's with the weird hair though?
<Character>: Huh Wha- I'm not Hertz! I'm <Character> and I'm here to stop you!
Joules: Stop me from what? I'm only celebrating Thankstaking with my dear brother!
<Character>: Celebrating Thankstaking by making a ton of robots?
Joules: Of course! Is there a better way to celebrate Thankstaking than TAKING all the joy from others?
<Character>: Yes! CELEBRATING with others! Like Voltabolt wanted to do! Doctor! What's wrong with you?
Voltabolt: You didn't vant me there! Everyone hates me!
<Character>: What are you talking about? We're all looking forward to the feast! To have it together with you and everyone else!
Voltabolt: I-I...My head.. Vhat is happening?
Joules: NO! You'll stay with me! Remember the bad things they said!!!
*With a flash of light and a loud explosion sound, the people of Falconreach celebrating Thankstaking appear in Joules' factory.*
Ash: We've heard everything!
*Cysero grins and gives a thumbs up.*
Aria: Yeah, we haven't said anything bad about you, Voltabolt!
Serenity: We were just remembering the previous years and how you have been a part of ThanksTaking for so long now!
Oishii: Through the good times and the bad!
Gretel: I knew I felt spied upon when we were talking! So, it was that girl!
Ash: It looks like she's manipulating Voltabolt with her magic!
<Character>: I will not allow that any longer!
*Joules blasts you away, summoning broken clockwork monster parts and pieces of scrap metal.*
Joules: It won't be that easy, <Character>!
<Character>: I've beaten a lot of your monsters. I can take this one on as well!
Battle! - begins battle with Scrapheap.
Heal - fully replenishes HP, MP, and potions.
Run Away! - returns to Thankstaking Storybook.
<Character>: And done!
Joules: I lost...
Joules: I NEVER lose!
<Character>: And still... You just did!
Joules: This won't be the last you've seen of me, <Character>! MARK MY WORDS!
*Joules teleports away.*
Voltabolt: Vhat... It vas like I vas in a trance. I could see vhat I vas doing but I couldn't stop myself...
<Character>: Are you ok?
Ash: Well enough for a feast?
Voltabolt: You mean... you still vant me at ze celebration?
Aria: Of course!
Lim: It wouldn't be a Thankstaking celebration without you!
Cysero: And because of you I got to eat my hams!
*Cysero grins and gives a thumbs up again.*
<Character>: What are you talki-
Lim: Don't ask!
<Character>: Ok then... Well, are we ready to go back?
Cysero: Then hang on tight, it's going to be a bumpy ride!
*Cysero uses the bacon to teleport everyone back to Falconreach; later that evening, you and the others sit around the Thankstaking feast table.*
<Character>: All that fighting made me hungry!
Serenity: Then let us not wait any longer! DIG IN!
Ash: Happy Thankstaking, everybody!
