Lim: <Character>! Right on time! After that, that MAGICIAN interrupted my last experiment, I decided to try something a little more dangerous.
Lim: I ran the LHC experiment again WITHOUT the mad weaponsmith, and the results were VERY informative.
Lim: Thanks to what I learned, I'm able to move on to a new, better experiment!
Lim: And you're going to be there when it goes off, right?
Lim: This experiment is more dangerous, it's true, but so useful!
Lim: If it works, you'll be able to see how powerful science is!
Lim: And, since it's so dangerous, that crazy mage will be too intimidated to try and interfere!
<Character>: You... you don't know Cysero very well, do you?
<Character>: He's idea of being useful usually involves offering explosives or, well, this one time there was an old lady who swallowed a fly.
Lim: Why? Was it Grams?
<Character>: No. And I don't know why she swallowed the fly. We thought she might die!
<Character>: Cysero waved a jar of honey in her face. To attract the fly inside her so that it'd come back OUT.
<Character>: The point is, he doesn't think the way you do. Try to predict what he'll do and you'll be in for a surprise.
Lim: Nevertheless, this experiment is vital to my research! It will help me prove that science is far superior to magic!
Lim: Come, come inside my workshop!
<Character>: That looks... non-functioning.
<Character>: I take it you need my help to find the last important component, or something?
Lim: Nooooooot exactly!
Lim: I just want you to be on hand to watch the magnificence. Can you imagine the POWER a contained blackhole will provide?!
Lim: Why, I could power of all of LORE with this one small blackhole!
<Character>: That REALLY doesn't sound like a good idea. Have you thought of everything that could go wrong?
Lim: Most assuredly.
Lim: And my studies tell me everything will be fine so long as I make sure to wear safety goggles!
Puts on safety glasses
Lim: Safety first!
<Character>: I would have thought that if the blackhole explodes, or implodes, or whatever a blackhole does, that the goggles, they would do nothing.
Lim: WHO is the Scientist in the room, hmmm? Trust me!
Lim: Everything is ready, press that big silver button in front of you.
You push button, it makes a sound and the mirror changes
<Character>: That looks perfectly safe...
Lim: *tear* Isn't it BEAUTIFUL?
<Character>: It's certainly hypnotic. Why, I could just stand here and stare at this for hours!
3 Hours Later
Aria: <Character>, <Character>!
<Character>: Just a sec...
Aria: YOU'VE GOT TO HELP! HURRY!
<Character>: Woah, slow down! Tell me what's going on first, THEN I'll help! I can't do anything without knowing what the problem is.
Aria: Grams told me to tell you that darkness and energy elementals are pouring into town, and they're headed for Mister Lim's shop!
Lim: That's DOCTOR Mister Lim, young lady!
<Character>: You're a Professor? No, nevermind. No time now. I'll head out right now, Aria, and take care of the prob-
Aria: Uh oh. I think they're already here!
<Character>: They must be attracted to the blackhole! We need to turn it off!
Hits the off button and nothing works
<Character>: It's not working!!!
Lim: Oh! Uh.. that button only turns it on. I didn't install an OFF switch...
Lim walks off screen
Lim: No problem, everything's ok.. just need to find the power cord....
Building shakes again
<Character>: Lim! Focus!
Lim: I got it...
Mirror changes back to it's originally state
<Character>: Aria, you stay with Lim. Go to the front of the shop and wait there.
<Character>: I'll head deeper into the workshop area and clean up this little mess.
After your battles....
<Character>: LIM! I thought I told you to turn this thing OFF!
Lim: I did!
<Character>: Are you telling me this thing can turn itself on?!
Cysero: Oh, no, I did that!
Cysero: Hiya, <Character>!
Lim runs back to the mirror with you and Cysero there
Cysero: And look! Sargent Lim of the Science Platoon! How do you feel about spaghetti?
Lim: What are YOU doing here?
<Character>: I like mine with sauce, lightly dusted with cheese. I should try to learn how to make that...
Cysero: No, no, no. The noodles, thick or thin?
Lim: Think, and you haven't said why you're HERE.
Cysero: Thick noodles clog your arteries. That's why I prefer mine thin.
Cysero: But the bakery yaga only had thick noodles today.
Cysero: Soooo, I decided to borrow your stretchifier.
Lim: It's CALLED a blackhole.
Cysero: Yup, that. If it'll pull monsters to it, I bet it will also pull my spaghetti. And THAT will make it thinner.
Cysero gets a fork full of spaghetti and watches as it sucks into the portal, and smiles
Cysero: See! it works! Now I just have 468 more strands to stretch!
Lim walks off and shuts off the portal mirror
Cysero's sad again!
<Character>: I'm sorry, Cysero. I know you're being health-conscious and all, but we just can't risk the monsters returning.
Cysero: Oh well. It looks like this one strand was stretched SO much that it'll fill me up all by itself.
Cysero: Say, Limmy-old-pal. I'm going to stretch my lunch tomorrow morning with your spaghettificationifier machine!
Cysero: I could really extend my food supply with this thing. It's a GREAT invention!
<Character>: Don't worry, Cysero. I'm sure you'll come up with a MAGICAL way to stretch your food budget!
<Character>: Or you could just eat LIM'S food! You two can bond over a shared love of... hmm. How about pancakes?
After you've battled all the monsters, and Cysero appears, and Lim says, "What are YOU doing here?" click the "ON" button near the black hole. The dialogue stays the same, but Lim, Cysero, and the hero start to twitch and move funnily.
