*You, Icemaster Yeti, and the Frostvale moglins are still gathered around the bonfire, waiting for someone else to recap Frostval's events from this year.*
Icemaster Yeti: Now that we've heard from both Tinsel and Holly, why don't we find out what really happened today?
<Character>: Chilly? Will you do the honors?
*Chilly nods his head with extreme enthusiasm.*
*Flashes white to depict a recap of you surrounded on both sides by Tinsel and Holly while Chilly witnesses their shared excitement.*
Chilly: The four of us gathered to make our sculptures for this year's contest.
Holly: It's here! The annual snow sculpting contest!
Tinsel: Come on! Let's go!
<Character>: Haha, hold on! Wait a minute!
<Character>: Do you guys know what you're making?
Holly: I'M going to make the coolest, most dashing-
Tinsel: I'm gonna make a Snow Tog!
*Tinsel raises both of his hands in the air and runs off-screen to start sculpting right away.*
Chilly: Hmm... I have an idea...
*Fades to black before fading back in on Tinsel while he is sculpting his snow tog.*
Tinsel: This is gonna be so cool!
*To his left, Holly blissfully places her Serenity doll next to her moglin sculpture.*
Holly: And you'll go riiiiiight here, next to him...~
Holly: This is a really special spot, Princess Flake! I hope you'll keep it warm for me~!
*To her left, Chilly sculpts a feline-dragon hybrid made with snow in addition to sticks and a carrot. He looks at it proudly when he comes to a good stopping point.*
*His eyes sparkle and he raises his smile. Chilly then gives his sculpture a hug, but the resulting magic unintentionally brings it to life. The moment the dragon sculpture roars, Chilly realizes his mistake.*
*The reanimated dragon sculpture swiftly flies past Holly's sculpture, wrecking it and taking her Serenity doll in the process, worrying her deeply.*
*The dragon sculpture also wrecks Tinsel's sculpture simply by flying past it, terrifying him after seeing the snow pile that used to be his snow tog.*
Holly: Princess Flaaaaaake!!!!!!
Icemaster Yeti: So the dragon came to life and made off with the doll- I mean, uh, fair princess?
*You approach Chilly whose head was buried in a snow pile by the time you arrived.*
<Character>: Chilly? What happened?!
*Chilly escaped from the pile by performing a backflip. He landed on his feet right next to you.*
Chilly: I was making a snow dragon...
Chilly: And it...accidentally came to life...
*Your eyes widened and you begin to turn regretful upon hearing Chilly's answer.*
Chilly: It wasn't on purpose! I was just trying to make it better!
Chilly: But my hug brought it to life...and then it flew away!
<Character>: How realistic did you make the dragon?!
*You look up in the sky to see for yourself regarding how realistic the dragon sculpture is. It is flying past the region by the time you got a good look at it.*
<Character>: Okay, that's pretty realistic!
<Character>: I'm sorry your sculpture was ruined, Holly...
Tinsel: No! That's not it!
Tinsel: The dragon made off with her doll!
Holly: Princess Flaaaaaake...!!
Chilly: We've gotta go and get it back!
Tinsel: But...I saw it!
Tinsel: I saw you make that dragon, Chilly!
Chilly: I did... but I'm gonna fix it!
Chilly: And <Character> will go with me to talk some sense into that dragon!
Chilly: Right, <Character>?
Chilly: Then let's go!
*Both you and Chilly travel into the snowy fields away from Frostvale to track down the dragon sculpture. On the way, Chilly feels regretful himself.*
Chilly: I feel really bad....
<Character>: It's not your fault. No one could've expected that.
Chilly: Yeah, but I should've known better!
Chilly: My papa says I need to be a good role model for Holly and Tinsel...
<Character>: Well, now's your chance! Let's get that doll back, and those two will see just how cool you are!
Chilly: Was that a pun?
<Character> (thinking): That was close... he almost caught me there.
<Character>: Hmm, the wind is picking up. There might be a snowstorm approaching, stay close to me.
*You and Chilly get caught in the snowstorm, but it does not impede the both of you from advancing through the field, however, while you move, a slither of your HP is deduced from the frostbite. Only a healing pad can guarantee recovery. Chilly gets in the ice cave ahead of you and hides behind an icicle while the dragon sculpture sleeps.*
Chilly (thinking): If I can just get to Princess Flake...
*Chilly sneaks around the area quietly, but just as he is near the Serenity doll, he grabs it quickly and runs past the dragon sculpture.*
Chilly: Yeah! That wasn't so bad!
*The dragon wakes up shortly afterwards at the sound of Chilly's voice, pushing his luck off the ledge.*
Chilly: Ah... whoops.
???: ... I know you. You're the little floof that brought me to life.
Chilly: Technically, I also kinda built you!
???: What business do you have here with me?
Chilly: Um... I'm here to take back this doll from you!
Chilly: You took it from a friend of mine by accident... and she needs it back!
*The dragon sculpture's head moves toward Chilly in an intimidating manner.*
???: And what happens if I refuse?
*Just as Chilly starts to get nervous, you catch up to him, which puts him at ease knowing that you have arrived to help him.*
<Character>: That's where I come in!
*After getting a good look at you, the dragon sculpture makes up its mind at once.*
<Character>: Now get ready to-
<Character>: -wait, what?
???: You can have it back.
<Character>: Uh... what? Shouldn't there be... a fight or something?
???: No. That would be boring. Plus, you can't hurt me. I'm made of snow.
<Character> (thinking): He's got a point...
Chilly (thinking): He's got a point...
Chilly: But why are you letting us go?
???: Because I owe you a debt. You created me, after all.
???: Yes. But I'm still not finished yet.
*Meanwhile, back at Frostvale, Tinsel and Holly were still hugging each other when the former saw you arrive back at the village.*
Tinsel: Did... did you get it?
*Chilly hands Holly back her Serenity doll, bringing tears of joy to her eyes.*
Holly: Princess Flake!
Holly: Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you!
Holly: So... so cool!
Tinsel (thinking): My Snow Tog was cooler!
Holly: Thank you for helping, <Character>!
<Character>: Oh, don't thank me. Chilly's the hero here! *wink*
Holly (thinking): My knight in shining armor...
Tinsel: But what about the dragon?
Chilly: Oh, about that...
*The dragon sculpture lands on the ground behind you and Chilly, scaring the young moglin twins.*
Chilly: He says he's sorry for taking the princess, and that he needs your help!
*In a recap that depicts what happened shortly before you and Chilly go back to Frostvale, the dragon sculpture delivers some sorrowful news about its life force.*
<Character>: So... the Moglin magic that's keeping you alive isn't enough?
???: Yes. Unless some other Moglins pour their magic into me-
???: -and you can stop hugging me, little one-
*Chilly hugs the sculpture, terrified that he would lose it any minute now.*
???: -I won't be alive for much longer. And even then, I would only last until the new year.
Chilly: I know just the right Moglins to help!
Holly: So... you want us to give him a hug?
<Character>: Maybe not a huuuuuug.
???: Something a little more potent than that.
*Chilly's eyes widened, causing them to sparkle. Tinsel just frowns while Holly contemplates. Thankfully, she smiles before she announces her decision.*
Holly: Oh, all right!
*After some preparation when they walk to the dragon sculpture, Holly and Tinsel shower it with blossoming affection, boosting its life force.*
Icemaster Yeti: So it wasn't just a hug. All three of you helped bring him to life?
Icemaster Yeti: Well, why didn't you just say that from the start?
Tinsel: Hand-holding is embarrassing, okay?!
<Character> (thinking): But not the kissing?
*Back to the present, Chilly finally wraps up his side of the story depicting the events of this year's tale.*
Chilly: So basically... that's pretty much how it happened!
<Character>: That reminds me... what will you name him?
Holly: Let's see... How about... Mr. Twinkl-
Tinsel: The Super Mega Giga Ultra Hyper Frost Wyvern! SMGUHFW!
Chilly: How about Snowfang?
Chilly: Do you like it?
*The dragon sculpture, now a living creature, kneels down toward the gathering to look at Chilly while it answers.*
Snowfang: That sounds perfect.
<Character>: Then Snowfang it is!
Icemaster Yeti: Hmm, what an interesting story after all! So THAT'S why there was a dragon by the table!
Icemaster Yeti: Good to know!
<Character>: And what did you two learn from this?
Tinsel: To work together...
Holly: To work together...
Tinsel: Not to exaggerate...
Holly: Not to exaggerate...
Chilly: What do you think, Snowfang?
Snowfang: Well, I must admit, they were both very interesting stories.
Snowfang (thinking): Even though I was a villain in all of them...
Icemaster Yeti: And thanks to you three, we have a powerful new ally to protect us during the Frostval season!
Snowfang: Yes, and your magic ensures that I'll return again every year.
Everyone: Happy Frostval!
*Fades to black.*
