@utunnels: As in...

-------------------------------------

Guile:
   (Sniff)

Lynx: [looking around]
   ?

Viper:
   What is it?

Lynx:
   I thought I heard something.
   It must just have been my
   imagination.

[Viper and Lynx leave]

Guile: [as he reappears]
   ACHOO!
   ...Viper does not have this
   corner dusted often enough.

-------------------------------------

(I'm always picking on poor Guile...)

Anyway, this one just needed some lines for Serge, so it didn't take all that long.



Ending 5: New Beginnings

Max recruits: Serge, (Magus and Guile) or (Glenn and Nikki),
        Sprigg, Radius, Norris, Skelly, Starky, Luccia, Leena, Harle.

This ending is available between the body-switch and rescuing Riddel
from Viper Manor.

==============================================
Marbule, Outdoors
==============================================

[Harle is waiting outside one of the huts as
Serge-Lynx emerges.]

Harle:
   Salut, Monsieur Lynx!
   Did you dream of moi?
   Ooh lah lah!

Serge:
   Um... Yeah, of course I did.
   (I seem to end up lying to her
   about that every morning...but
   if I don't lie, she spends HOURS
   babbling about me no longer
   being Serge...)

Harle:
   We have another grand
   day ahead of us!

[The two of them walk through town together,
exchanging greetings with the villagers.]

 [Demi-human Man]
   Good morning,
   Mister Lynx, Harle!

Harle:
   Good morning to
   you, too!
   Keep up ze good work
   wit' zat well!
   
 [Demi-human Man]
   Hah-hah-hah!
   No problem!

Harle:
   Salut!
   
 [Demi-human]
   Good morning,
   Mister Lynx.
   A beautiful day, isn't it?
   I'm going to work my heart
   out for a new Marbule!

Harle:
   Bravo!
   Excellente!
   Keep up ze
   good work!
   
 [Demi-human]
   Thank you!

Serge:
   (Sigh. I'm starting to feel like
   Harle is trying to get me
   nominated as the next mayor of
   Marbule...even if that isn't what
   I want. But...what else am I
   supposed to do? I haven't been
   able to find out what happened
   to Kid, or the real Lynx, or
   any of that...)

 [Demi-human]
   Hey!
   It's Lynxy!
   
   C'mon, let's play!

Harle:
   Non, non...!
   Monsieur Lynx iz
   very buzy today!
   
 [Demi-human]
   I wasn't asking you,
   Harle!
   Nah-nah!
   
Harle:
   Arghhh...
   Nah-nah!
   
 [Demi-human]
   Hah hah hah haha!

Serge:
   (I wonder sometimes how old
   Harle really is...)

 [Demi-human Woman]
   Hi, Lynx!
   Hi, Harle!

Harle:
   Good morning!
   
 [Demi-human Woman]
   Listen, I was wondering
   if you could go do some
   shopping for me?
   I'll give you a discount!
   
Harle:
   Sure, but maybe
   later, non?
   
Harle:
   Phew...

Serge:
   (Heh. Harle does hate to work.)

Irenes:
   You sure are popülar,
   Herr Lynx!

Serge:
   I...guess I am. (It's kind of
   scary, really.)

Harle:
   Oh, good morning,
   sirène of ze sea!
   About zat person you
   were looking for...
   Leave it to us!
   
Irenes:
   So you will take
   on my request?
   T'ank you!
   
Harle:
   Zat iz no problème
   for Monsieur Lynx.

Irenes:
   I knew I could
   count on you.
   Well, gut-bye.

Harle:
   Salut!

Harle:
   So, what iz ze
   agenda for today?

Serge:
   I don't know. I guess we should
   start looking for this guy
   Irenes is interested in--
   (Oh, hell, is that the Sage?)

Harle:
   Hm?

Harle:
   Good morning, Sage!

Sage:
   Oh, good morning,
   Lynx, Harle.

Serge:
   Morning.
   (If he gets a mop out,
   I'm running.)

Sage:
   You two seem to fit in
   quite nicely after
   several months here.
   The restoration program
   is coming along fine.
   Thanks to you two, of course.

Harle:
   Zere iz not'ing Monsieur
   Lynx cannot do, non?

Serge:
   Hey, wait a second--

Sage:
   Hahahahah.
   I was hoping you
   would say that.
   There is something
   I would like to discuss.

Harle:
   Oui?
   What iz it?

Serge:
   (I'm not sure I want to know,
   after an intro like that, but
   if I walk away, Harle will just
   come after me later, so...)
   Go on.

Sage:
   Hmmm...
   Well, as you probably know,
   life in Marbule is beginning
   to center around you.
   Unlike before, everybody
   is generating a positive
   attitude.
   This may be a golden opportunity
   to bring about a change to
   our dated way of thinking.
   I am sure we will have to
   associate with the humanfolks
   on equal terms now.
   I believe it is time
   for a new leader.
   I am too old for this.

Serge:
   Please tell me you're not saying
   what I think you're saying. You
   can't possibly want me to take
   over your job...can you?

Sage:
   Yes, exactly.
   Once you become the leader
   of Marbule, the way we
   demi-humans view the world
   will change for the better...
   I believe you will be able
   to bring forth a new age in
   the history of demi-humans.

Harle:
   Looks like you've kept
   an eye on him!
   Well, Monsieur Lynx?
   How about it?
   Of course, I will help, too.

Serge:
   But I...I'm not...

Sage:
   You do not have to
   answer right away.
   Stay here as long as you
   want to consider my offer.
   But keep in mind, everybody
   looks up to you and needs you.

Sage:
   Good day.

Serge:
   Damnit! He makes me feel like
   such a fraud--a human in a cat
   suit. And now he wants ME to
   run Marbule? (This is so
   ridiculous it's almost funny.
   Almost.)

Harle:
   Monsieur Lynx...
   You will find un way to
   get your old self back.

Harle:
   But until zen, let'z do
   what we can for ze
   demi-humans here, non?

Serge:
   Who are you, and what did you
   do with the real Harle? YOU'RE
   the one who keeps insisting that
   my memories of my life as Serge
   are just a figment of my
   imagination...

Harle:
   Oui...but it iz clear to me now
   zat you are not happy az Monsieur
   Lynx.

Serge:
   And you want me to be happy?
   (Funny, it never seemed to
   matter much to her before...)

Harle:
   But of course!

[Serge shakes his head]

Serge:
   (I am never, ever going to
   understand her.)

Harle:
   You are needed here.
   No matter how you look on
   ze outside, you are you!
   And zat iz what iz important.
   Everybody iz looking
   to you for guidance.
   You can do it, Monsieur Lynx...
   I know you can!

[The scene fades out, so that Harle's last lines are
displayed on a blank screen]

[Harle]
   Don't worry,
   I will be by your side...

   Serge...

==============================================
Pearly Gates
==============================================

[Radius, Zappa, and Fargo enter the area together.
Dark Serge is waiting for them by the end wall.]

Dark Serge:
   Well, well, well...
   If it isn't the
   3 old farts...
   I'll hear what you
   have to say...
   
Radius:
   Listen well!
   The countless evil deeds
   you have commited
   cannot go unpunished!
   We can no longer allow
   you to do as you please!
   Prepare yourself!

Zappa:
   Ah hear ye be the bastard
   that killed all the
   dragoons dead.
   That's why ah'm here,
   to avenge me son!

Fargo:
   Arg! I, too, am a villain,
   but me reasons are just!
   You're nothin' but a disgrace!

Dark Serge:
   Hah.
   I really don't have time to
   deal with the likes of you...

[Kid enters from the left and positions herself between the
older men and Dark Serge]

Kid:
   Oi! I ain't gonna let
   you get in the way of
   Serge's plan!

Dark Serge:
   That's the way it goes...
   But I do need to get
   used to my new body...
   I'll make a special exception
   today, and take you on as well.
   
Radius:
   Prepare, scoundrel!

Kid:
   Hah!
   Any time you're ready!

[Dark Serge advances to stand closer to Kid, and the scene fades out.]

~Fin



Just two more to go: Onward, Dragoons! and The Darkened Fate.

This was mostly another "just needed some dialogue for Serge" thing,
although Magus did manage to insert himself briefly.



Ending 6: Onward, Dragoons!

Max recruits: Serge, (Magus and Guile) or (Glenn and Nikki),
        Sprigg, Radius, Norris, Skelly, Starky, Grobyc, Luccia, Leena, Harle.

[This ending is available between rescuing Riddel and Harle leaving the party.]

==============================================
Great Hall, Viper Manor
==============================================

[The Dragoons are drawn up in ranks with Viper and the
Devas at the front. Norris, dressed as the dishwasher,
has slipped into an empty space in the rear rank.]

Karsh:
   Teeeen-huuut!

Karsh:
   General, the time has finally
   come for the Acacia Dragoons
   to sally forth!

Marcy:
   Can I kill 'em all yet?
   
Viper:
   Hmmm...
   
Viper:
   Everyone, prepare yourselves
   to face Serge's army!
   Long live the pride and honour
   of the Acacia Dragoons!!!
   
Zoah:
   ARGH!!!
 
 [Acacia Dragoons]
   Rrrargh!
   Yes, General Viper!!!

[Norris breaks ranks and slips out of the room,
talking as he goes.]

Norris:
   It appears this
   battle is unavoidable...

Norris:
   I am sure the Porre
   army will strike
   back in full force...
   Perhaps this, too, is fate.

[Once he's out of the room...]

Viper:
   Move out!!!
   
ZOAH:
   COME!
   FOLLOW ME!!!

[Exeunt dragoons, with Zoah and Marcy in the lead.]

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

[If Magus has been recruited, when everyone else is gone,
he fades into visibility in the corner of the room.]

Magus:
   So Lynx is leading an army now,
   is he? Well, then, let the fools
   kill each other--only Belthasar
   matters now.

[He exits in the direction of the library.]

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

[Fade to...]

==============================================
SS Invincible
==============================================

[Dark Serge is standing near the base of the mast
when Fargo, Viper, and the Devas arrive.]

Dark Serge:
   Shall we get started...?

[Fade to...]

==============================================
Marbule
==============================================

[Serge-as-Lynx and Harle are inside one of the houses.]

Harle:
   Monsieur Lynx...

Serge:
   Yeah? (Sigh. Why does she have
   to call me that? She KNOWS I
   hate Lynx.)

Harle:
   Zis iz a nice change, non?
   Just taking it eazy.
   Before, I would travel
   all over ze place with ze
   other Monsieur Lynx.
   I've never stayed in one
   place for so long.

Harle:
   I wish...
   it could be like zis
   a bit longuer...

Serge:
   You're expecting something
   to change? I hadn't intended
   to go anywhere until we figure
   out how to get my body back,
   and I'm not really having
   much luck with that.

Harle:
   ............Well zen.

Harle:
   Time for dinner, non?

Serge:
   (She's changing the subject
   again, just like she does every
   time I try to talk about this.)
   I guess it is getting
   kind of late.

Harle:
   What would you like ce soir?
   ~~~Your specialty...            |    ~~~Whatever...
                                   |
Serge:                             | Serge:
   You know, that thing with the   |    Just make it, and
   mangoes and the shrimp?         |    I'll eat it.
                                   |
Harle:                             | Harle:
   Oui?                            |    Ooh lah lah...
   Zen I will do mon best!         |    Are you still being shy?
   I have to go steal...           |    You are Monsieur Lynx.
   I mean get some ingredients,    |    Show some confiance.
   so wait here...                 |    Zis human named Serge
   Mon chéri...                    |    no longuer existz in
                                   |    zis world.
Kid:                               |    Just accept it.
   Mon chéri,                      |    C'est la vie!
   Mon SHMERI!                     |
                                   | Kid:
                                   |    I see...
                                   |    Serge, too...

[Kid enters the house.]

Serge:
   K-Kid?
   Is it really you?
   I thought you were dead!

Kid:
   I finally found you...

Harle:
   Ooh lah lah...
   You are still alive.

Kid:
   Of course I am!
   I have more lives than a cat!

Kid:
   What are you doin' here
   anyway, Lynx!?
   This is pathetic!
   This whole situation
   is pissin' me off!

Serge:
   Kid, I'm not--

Harle:
   Zut! Zat crazy blonde
   iz disturbing us again.

Kid:
   Shut up!
   I ain't here to see you!

Kid:
   Listen up, Lynx!
   First you take Lucca,
   and now Serge!
   It's time for you to pay!

Serge:
   Don't you--

Kid:
   Prepare yerself, Lynx!
   You ain't gettin' away
   this time!
   You're goin' down!

Serge:
   (So either I end up killing her,
   or she kills me, and either way
   the real Lynx goes unpunished...
   How am I supposed to make her
   listen?)

[Fade out as Kid brandishes her knife...]



Just "The Darkened Fate" left now--after that, I have to decide on
my next project...

I guess this translates into going out with a whimper rather than a bang, alas...

The only bit I actually changed was near the end, and it's far from my best piece of
Magus dialogue ever.



Ending 7: The Darkened Fate

Max recruits: Serge, (Magus and Guile) or (Glenn and Nikki),
        Sprigg, Radius, Norris, Skelly, Karsh, ZOAH, Marcy, Fargo, Starky,
        Grobyc, Luccia, Dario, Leena.

[This ending is available after Harle has left, but before the party battles
Dario (and before Terra Tower rises, if the player chooses to skip the
Dario subquest.)]

==============================================
Lobby, Chronopolis
==============================================

[Dark Serge and Kid are walking up the middle aisle-thing
that leads to the main part of the building. They're almost
at the far door when Kid stops.]

Dark Serge:
   Hm?
   Is something wrong,
   Kid?
   
Kid:
   Yeah...
   Looks like we've got company.
   I'll hold 'em off here.
   You go on ahead, Serge.

Dark Serge:
   Fine...
   I'm counting on
   you, Kid.

[Dark Serge continues on through the far door just as Harle enters
and walks past the statue.]

Harle:
   Kid...

Kid:
   Not you again...!
   I thought you
   were with Lynx!?

Harle:
   You're......I see...
   I am in a hurry.
   Would you mind letting
   me through, pleaze?
   
Kid:
   Hah!
   It'll take a little more than
   a '"pleaze"' to let you through.
   Over my dead body, I say!

Harle:
   Kid!
   It iz senseless
   for us to fight!
   We must stop Serge...
   I mean, Monsieur Lynx!
   
Kid:
   Quit tryin' to talk
   yer way out of it!
   I don't like you.
   It's as simple as that!
   I don't care if it is
   senseless for us to fight!

Harle:
   D'accord...
   Zen I guess it
   cannot be helped...
   
Kid:
   So you're finally ready
   to face the music, eh!?
   Put up yer dukes!

[Fade to...]

==============================================
Chieftain's Hut, Arni
==============================================

[A woman is doing something in the kitchen when an
old man enters.]

 [Old Man]
   Morning!
   I hope you don't mind.

[woman]
   Oh? Are you here to consult
   the Record of Fate again?
   You sure are devoted.

 [Old Man]
   Heh heh...
   There's not much else
   to do at my age...

[woman]
   Oh, please...
   You're still young!
   Take your time.

[The old guy crosses the room to look at the Record of Fate...
and notices something isn't quite right.]

 [Old Man]
   Let's see now...

   .....................!
   H-Holy cow...!

   A-A-Ahhh
   This can't be...!
   H-Help!!!

[The woman leaves the kitchen and approaches the Record as well.]

[woman]
   What's wrong?

 [Old Man]
   Th-The Record of Fate...

 [Woman]
   Oh my!

 [Old Man]
   I-It's turned black!

 [Woman]
   B-But, why!?

 [Old Man]
   How the heck should
   I know!
   I-I'll go call the
   chief.
   I hope this isn't
   a bad omen...

[The old guy goes running out the door]

 [Old Man]
   C-C-CHIEF...!

==============================================
Project Kid, Chronopolis
==============================================

[Dark Serge enters the room, then floats up so
that he is level with the center of the giant sphere.]

Dark Serge:
   Heh heh heh heh...
   I've finally made
   it this far...

Dark Serge:
   And now!
   The Frozen Flame is
   finally in my hands!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

[If Magus was recruited, he drops down from above at this
point. Dark Serge dodges just barely in time to avoid being
scythed down.]

Dark Serge:
   How did you get in here?!

Magus:
   I made a blind teleport through
   the door. Fortunately, my arrival
   point turned out to be empty.

Dark Serge:
   Heh. So you risked your life...
   for what, exactly?

Magus:
   To destroy the Frozen Flame. Had
   you arrived an hour later, you
   would have found only dust.

Dark Serge:
   Oh? It's a good thing I
   hurried, then.

   I take it you aren't going to
   let me have the Flame.

Magus:
   Indeed. Letting a roach like you
   nibble at it might have some
   unpleasant results.

Dark Serge:
   Then let's get on with it,
   shall we?

[Dark Serge pulls his scythe, and the scene fades out
to the sound of clashing weapons.]

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If Magus wasn't recruited, the camera pans up until we
can no longer see Dark Serge]

Dark Serge:
   I shall become
   FATE...!

   Heh heh heh heh...

   Hah hah hah hah...!

[And we finish with a brief VIDEO: Serge looks up, and his eyes
suddenly go slit-pupilled, like Lynx's.]

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~Fin



And that's it, folks--I'm not touching the other endings.

I'm going to be offline for a couple of days starting Friday, and then I have a
minor non-Chrono project to finish up. After that, I'll have to decide whether
to attempt to move forward on that "Chrono Break" fragment I did or not.

Aw, shucks.

I'm sure, though, that if the original game's creators had been free of time and budget constraints, they would have created something even better.
