*Back at Majji's fortress, he seems to have recovered from his previous disappointment.*
"M": This is- this is still salvageable!
"M": Come on, "M"! Think of what your fathers would say!
"M": Think of the happy, Apsaydaaunian faces!
"M": Happy, candy-stuffed faces!
<Character>: That's enough, Majji!
"M": W-who dares to call me by my–
"M": Oh, it's YOU!
"M": I won't let you destroy my last bit of hope!
Al'nold: Majji, p-please! Your creations were destroying the world! <Character> had to destroy them!
"M": STOP CALLING ME THAT!
Akaz: Fine then. "M", you need to stop! What you're doin' is far too extreme to help the business! Believe me, I've been down this path. As has Al.
"M": Unlike you, simpletons, this is but a small step back on the path to greatness!
"M": Plants powered by the captured candy, extracting from them pure, unfiltered fear!
"M": Just a drop of that would make an entire batch of processed candy absolutely divine!
"M": You think anyone else could have achieved this?! NO! It was all me!
<Character>: I'm sorry Sisters, I can't listen to this self-centered... whatever he is anymore.
<Character>: I won't let you take anymore humans for your vile experiments!
"M": And I won't let some sour candy talk back to me like that! I will defend my last, ingenious creation to my final breath!!
Battle! - begins battle with Majji, Saccharculus, and Thorny Vine.
Heal - fully replenishes HP, MP, and potions.
Run Away! - returns to Mogloween Storybook.
*After the battle, a defeated Majji wallows in self-pity.*
"M": You have doomed me...
Bubble: Oh don't be so dramatic, you'll live.
"M": No... I have failed. I have let down my parents, and figuratively literally everyone on our entire plane of existence.
"M": And worst of all, I have failed the only person that counts the most...
*Majji pauses as acceptance of his defeat turns to anger towards his defeater; you.*
"M": Actually no, what am I saying?
"M": This is all your fault!
"M": My plan and its execution were perfect!
"M": With such a low chance for candy to actually end up here, my idea was brilliant and ahead of its time!
<Character>: I can't believe this needs to be said out-loud... YET AGAIN...
<Character>: ...but it's humans! Not candy! And I don't take kindly to you guys eating humans!
<Character>: Like, am I in the wrong here?!
<Character>: What's happening!?
<Character>: Eating. People. Equals. Bad!
"M": So you just expect us to change our ways, our way of living, because it's "bad", in your opinion?!
Trouble: <Character>, we told you that our people will have a hard time adjusting to a life without cand– humans!
<Character>: We have here not only all of the Baleful Brothers, but also all of the Cauldron Sisters! In one room!
Myx: And me!
<Character>: And Myx!
<Character>: And Verly!
<Character>: Anyway! You guys all tried to make substitutes in your candy-making businesses... or were a part of the experiments in said businesses.
<Character>: I don't know, have a brainstorming session!
<Character>: I remember you lot saying that fear is essential for the... and I can't believe I'll say this... for the "candy" to taste good.
<Character>: I like the plants idea, "M", that's a step in a good direction!
"M": Well of course it is, I thought of it.
<Character>: So, like, can't you just make plants that can be scared or something?
*The Cauldron Sisters, Myx, and the Baleful Brothers all stop, seemingly shocked by what you have just proposed; meanwhile, Verlyrus continues happily licking his paw; you look back and forth between everyone's surprised faces, wondering if you have said something you shouldn't have.*
<Character>: Uhh... have I said something untactful again?
Toil: N-no, this is...
"M": This is a truly magnificent idea. I... literally... cannot believe I haven't thought of that.
Bubble: No more need for humans...
Bubble: No human will ever get hurt...
Akaz: Plants may be challenging to grow...
Trouble: But it's not like the plants will be sapient...
Al'nold: It quite frankly solves all the problems!
"M": We grow the plants, we introduce the fear factor, we grind the plants down which results in a powdered fear...
Trouble: Vegan fear!
Myx: I'll explain later.
Toil: And then we prepare conventional, edible candy, with the powder, either sprinkled on top, or directly in the formula!
Akaz: Or we can just sell the powder itself!
"M": No Akaz, this will be the "business secret". Every successful business needs a secret, I've read about it.
Akaz: Oh, cool.
<Character>: Umm, yes?
Bubble: You might have just saved BOTH our worlds!
Bubble: With the simplest, most plain idea ever!
<Character>: That... almost sounded like a complement, if you hadn't added that second part.
<Character>: But hey, I'll take it!
"M": I will start working on this post haste! As soon as I collect myself, obviously, I must look resplendent while unveiling this new invention!
Myx: Wow, and no brainstorming was even necessary. Way to go, <Character>...
*You glare at Myx disapprovingly.*
A few days later!
*In Akaz's laboratory, you have all assembled again to witness Majji's plant prototype.*
"M": And there it is! Sadly, this particular plant will not be the true, final product.
"M": I just simply altered this plant's molecular structure, thus allowing it to experience fright. Merely a prototype.
"M": The true, finished Phobos Timore™ will be grown with utmost care and dread, and as we all know, this process takes patience and time!
"M": Now then, <Class>! Do the honors!
"M": Scare it.
"M": But of course. It was your idea, after all! I am stepping down from my pedestal, for a moment mind you, and giving YOU all the spotlight!
<Character>: How... gracious.
*Majji smiles proudly.*
Bubble: Go on, <Character>! I can't wait to see it!
<Character>: Okay then.
*You stand before the plant prototype, unsure of what to do.*
*You glance backwards, knowing the future of both Apsaydaaun and Lore is, somewhat, in your hands.*
<Character> (haunting): Boo?
*The plant prototype appears to quiver with fright.*
"M": Astonishing! You are a very scary candy!
"M": Ah, my apologies, a very scary human! I still have a little bit of growing to do!
Bubble: Alrighty, now for the next step: grind it into powder and sprinkle it on this cookie!
*The scene fades out and back in as Bubble presumably grinds the plant prototype down into a powder and sprinkles it on a cookie.*
"M": Let me taste it, please. I simply must be the one to taste it first.
Bubble: Umm, go ahead...
*Majji takes a bite of the fearful-plant-powdered cookie; everyone nervously awaits his reaction.*
Al'nold: S-so? How is it?
*Majji takes a moment to savour the tasty treat.*
*Later, in another part of Apsaydaaun, you appear to be bidding farewell to the Baleful Brothers for another year.*
<Character>: Well then! With the things settled, this will be a goodbye, for now!
"M": I would once more like to extend my, nay, our gratitude!
Akaz: Our family business is saved, thanks to ya!
Al'nold: The only thing remaining now... is to relay this new candy plan to our parents...
"M": I dread it now even more than before. We won't be using humans, after all. And our fathers are... traditionalists.
Myx: Hey, that's true! After all, Simsa and Labim were the ones who first started monopolizing huma– I mean candy!
Myx: You bros are so screwed!
Bubble: I think it will be fine! We've made a big deal of our moms grounding us, and after all that it turned out okay!
Toil: Well, we did have <Character>'s help in this matter.
"M": In this case...
"M": Aha, merely a jest! We'll take care of it by ourselves.
"M": Together, my brothers!
Akaz, Al'nold (in unison): Together!
Trouble: Don't forget to keep in touch! We're more than happy to help with the new candy!
<Character>: Trick or treating time!!
*Scene fades to black.*
