<Character>: Come on, Lim! Cysero needs our help! And I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see what he does with that broken umbrella.
Lim: ...Alright, Cysero. We're here. You've caught <Character>'s attention ...and mine.
Lim: WHAT do you need all our help with that involves that piece of my ruined experiment.
Cysero: Oh, you'll like this! It involves...
Lim: I don't know, MAGIC-man. What could you need science's help with for your little ars magica activity?
<Character>: Well, he DID use your science to discover hamptons...
<Character>: And to help with spaghettification...
Lim: THANK YOU, <Character>.
Cysero: Come on, Senator Lim of the Space-Time continuum, you need to listen to this theory of mine.
Cysero: Magic and Science are two halves of the same whole.
Cysero: Understand it. Know it. Love it.
<Character>: After all I've gotten to observe, all the Science, all the Magic... all the teaching you and Cysero have done... I've learned...
<Character>: The science of magic and the magic of science is the same thing. Or close to it.
<Character>: You scientists can't always explain why things work. It's true, and you know it.
Lim: Well, but-...maybe.
<Character>: You have to believe there's a reason why it works, just like mages believe in the power of magic.
<Character>: And you can explain why some aspects of magic work using science.
<Character>: I bet you can explain some science-y things work using magic, if you'd give Cysero a try.
Lim: Hmmph. You might have a point. But...
Lim: I suppose I can hear Cysero out, at least.
Cysero: This morning as I was shaving my rhododendron plant, I had a visitor.
<Character>: A visitor?
Cysero: Yes. Handsome, Charming, and VERY full of vital information. But more about him later.
Cysero: He needed my help and I will ALWAYS help someone in need!
Lim: *mutter* I know what you call help...
Cysero: See, there's a machine, and it NEEDS to get built. The fate of the world depends on it!
Cysero: Your world, my world, his world, her world.
Lim: WE SHARE THE SAME WORLD!
Cysero: So you see why getting this machine built is so important! Good.
Cysero: I thought you'd take more convincing.
<Character>: So, how can I help, Cysero?
Cysero: I have this friend. Well, he's not really a FRIEND, per se...
Cysero: More of the fourth cousin of an acquaintance of an enemy who did me a favour once after I fixed his plumbing.
Cysero: But lets call him a friend for brevity's sake.
Cysero: You might have met him before, <Character>. He doesn't much like strangers...
Cysero: But if you sneak in and out before he notices you, you'll be able to borrow Biff's Timey-Blimey thingamahicky and get it back...
Cysero: ...Before he knows its gone!
Cysero: While you're gone, Lim and I will start building! Once you get back, all we'll need is too wire it in place and like BONZER it'll be done and gone.
<Character>: Can do. Will do.
<Character>: ...So, it's back to that Purple-y portal, right?
Cysero: You got it!
Some time later
<Character>: Shouldn't there... be a big, buffed up Time Tyrant here?
Biff: HOW do you heroes keep FINDING me?
Biff: I told that addle-headed Green Mage that I DON'T like visitors.
<Character>: Oh, right, right. That's totally what he said. I thought I'd stop by anyways. Maybe take a peak at your Timey-Blimey thing.
Biff: That's MINE! You couldn't possibly comprehend it's affects on Space-Time. It could tear a whole in the universe.
Biff: Not even I know all of it's properties. This could pull bits from the all over the universe or DESTROY them!
<Character>: That's great, but Cysero really wants that thing. I am a pretty skilled <Class>. I think I can handle it with proper precautions. *grin*
<Character>: Oh, good, it fit. I wasn't sure it was what you needed. It's such a strange shape!
Cysero: It fit PERFECTLY! It was exactly what we needed.
<Character>: Oh goo-
Cysero: Hi Lim! Hi <Character>! I'm from your future! You'll get to know me in 5 years or so.
Cysero: Hi me!
Cysero: I thought you'd be upstairs baking.
Cysero: The herbal breads done rising, and I had enough thyme so I could come and say hi to your friends.
???: OUR friends!
Lim: Do Do...I see three Cysero's?
<Character>: More like Two and a half.
<Character>: Hey, does that mean Cysero's shops are going to have competitive prices now?
Lim: I haven't even finished plans for the cloning machine yet!
Sys-Zero: It's Sys-ZERO. With a Z.
Cysero: I got this, guys. I'ma answer him.
Cysero: What's up, Tyrant Lim of the Tempus Trireme.
<Character>: That's the best one yet!
Lim: ANYWAYS...What is going on here?!
Cysero: I know the time machine isn't perfect. I wanted it to be bigger on the inside than the outside, too.
Cysero: But this is pretty good for excellent adventure FutureCysero will use it for.
Lim: That's not what I'm talking abou-
<Character>: But why's it look like that?
Cysero: Because that's what I remember it looking like.
Cysero: So he doodle it and gave it to NotMe.
<Character>: But... you remembered something we... haven't built yet?
Cysero: Yep! It's all very simple.
Cysero: Now, does anyone have a dime?
Cysero: I have peanut-butter glitter. Will that help?
<Character>: What's a dime?
Cysero: 's alright. I'll call collect.
Lim: ARGH!!! WILL SOMEONE TELL ME WHAT IS HAPPENING?!
Cysero: See ya, Lieutenant Lim of the Ludology Lab.
Cysero: Thanks for the help, <Character>!
Cysero: Oh, hey. Is that my left sock? Hey waaaaaaaaaaait...
Cysero: Breath in the calm, Lieutenant Lim. Breath out the RAGEARRRGHINSANEBLARGRAWR!
Cysero: Building that machine... MIGHT have broken space-time.
Cysero: But it was great to have a Cysereunion, wasn't it?
Cysero: I never knew how handsome I am until today!
Cysero: FutureCysero contacted me this morning through Orbert here.
Cysero: I didn't know he could act as a temporal transponder. But he can and he did.
Cysero: And it let FutureMe send me a message. He needed the Time Booth for... something. He wasn't clear.
Cysero: Said I'd find out soon enough. Or already knew. He wasn't sure.
Lim: But- But how'd they all GET here?
Cysero: Same way YOU did.
Cysero: But I REALLY needed your help, Lim. Whenever I do science, wires get crossed, and things explode. Or turn into other things.
Cysero: As much as I like explosions (and fish), I needed the Time Booth to stay in one place, and not a fish.
Cysero: But I've got to go. SideCysero might have left some peanutbutter glitter behind. Or even better... Jelly Sparkles! Tschus!
<Character>: So Lim...
<Character>: Now that you've seen what happens...
<Character>: Are you OK with using magic and science together?
<Character>: I mean Magiscientists do it all the time!
Lim: Science will always be superior to me!
Lim: But I suppose I can't blame JUST magic for their being 5 Cysero's in one place and one time.
<Character>: Nope! That was really BOTH you're faults!
Lim: Since magiscientists have proven the two can co-exist...
Lim: I will unbend my strict scientific standards for future collaborations.
<Character>: But your heart?
Lim: Will always belong to...
Lim: *snort* Hahaha!
Lim: But what about YOU, <Character>? Are you a Mana-minded magiclover? A logic centre scientist? Or...something else?
