Avatar: Can I tell you something? I know this may seem forward, but... Your words and actions have always meant so much to me.
Avatar: I know it sounds a bit silly when I say it out loud like that. But it's the truth. Your commitment to peace inspired me. Even when it was clear that war was inevitable, you stood by your principles. I know you and Chrom clashed over it, but in the end... Well, he wants peace as badly as you. He shares your dream. If there was a path that avoided war, I'm sure he would have taken it.
Emmeryn: I don't... Don't understand...
Avatar: It's okay, Your Grace. You're tired, and I'm not making much sense. Just know that we'll build the world you envisioned. One without fear or war. We're working every day to make it happen.
Avatar: Forgive me. I should let you get your rest.
Emmeryn: No, I... It's all right.
Avatar: I'll come see you again soon. Take care, Emmeryn.
Avatar: Before, when you said my name, I...I got a little too excited. I shouldn't have called everyone over. Especially when you should be resting. So anyway, I'm sorry. It won't happen again, I promise.
Emmeryn: ...It's fine. I didn't mind.
Avatar: Thanks. That's good of you to say. ...It makes me so happy to see you doing so well, Emmeryn.
Emmeryn: I know. ...I'm happy, too.
Avatar: We'll just keep taking this slowly for a bit. Let time work its magic.
Avatar: Is something wrong?
Emmeryn: I'll get better.
Avatar: I don't doubt it!
Emmeryn: You have been...so good to me. I like having you near. Will you...stay with me?
Emmeryn: I want you to stay with me. ...Always.
Avatar: Emmeryn! O-of course I will! You're getting better by the day, and I want to be around to see every minute.
Emmeryn: Thank you...
Avatar: And someday, when you're better and I've grown into a man worthy of you, maybe... Maybe we can be together...forever?
Emmeryn: You are already worthy.
Avatar: I don't know...
Emmeryn: I'm...better. But I'm not...healed. Will you stay until then? Will you...wait for me?
Avatar: Until the end of time...
Emmeryn: Thank you...for this chance. I...love you. You make me...whole again.
Emmeryn: Will you...talk to me...again? As you did...before?
Avatar: If it pleases you. Perhaps I can tell you about Chrom. Would you like that?
Emmeryn: Chrom is...my...brother?
Avatar: That's right. He took over the throne, after you... Er, after you left. He's become a fine ruler. A beacon of hope, for people all across the world. They trust him to bring about a future of peace, and prosperity.
Avatar: We're not there yet, though. We're fighting a terrible war against frightening odds. But at least Chrom gives us hope, even in these desperate hours. I know you'll be proud of him when you finally see all he has done.
Avatar: Of course, once you've recovered, the first priority will be to reclaim your throne. You're still the exalt, after all.
Emmeryn: I am...exalt? I do not...understand...
Avatar: No, of course you wouldn't. Not yet, anyway.
Emmeryn: Chrom is...ruler. Chrom is...exalt. He must...lead.
Avatar: Well...if that were to be your wish, then of course it would be done.
Avatar: But it's too early for that, now. When your memory has returned, then you can make a decision.
Emmeryn: Wh-why not...now?
Avatar: Because... Well, because Chrom wants you back on the throne, that's why! The thought that you'll return gives him strength, to keep going.
Emmeryn: I...see. I shall...do as you say.
Avatar: You just focus on recovering your memories, and I'll drop by whenever I can to help.
Avatar: Your Grace? ...Emmeryn? Are you all right? Are you feeling unwell?
Emmeryn: I am...quite well. I have been...thinking.
Avatar: You have?
Emmeryn: What...am I? Who...am I?
Avatar: But... You're Exalt Emmeryn.
Emmeryn: So I am...told. But...with no memories... I cannot...lead. I cannot...inspire. I am...an empty shell... A burden... Of no use...to anyone.
Avatar: Nothing could be further from the truth! Why have you started thinking like this? Was it something I said?
Emmeryn: You did...nothing...wrong.
Avatar: No, I did. It was all that talk about Chrom being an inspiration to us, was it not? About his need for you to recover your memories and reclaim your rightful throne? I've been putting too much pressure on you... Of course you feel helpless. Oh, Your Grace! Please forgive me!
Emmeryn: Stop...blaming...yourself. You are...innocent.
Avatar: But, Your Grace!
Emmeryn: I am...glad to...speak...to you...Avatar. I am grateful...that you...come to me...like this. I...did not know...what I must...do... But now...I have...a goal. A reason...to live.
Emmeryn: I am...most grateful...to you. I'm sorry...I am still...so weak...
Avatar: You're growing stronger every day. I'm sorry if I ever made you doubt it.
Emmeryn: Don't...blame yourself. Just...promise me...that you...will help until...I am strong...again.
Avatar: Of course I will, Emmeryn! I shall stay with you always, whether you recover your memories or not! A bond of friendship unites us now, and never shall it be broken.
Emmeryn: ...You...serve me...because...I am...exalt. It is...your...duty...
Morgan: Hmm... I wonder why I have no memory of my mother... All my memories of Father are so crisp and clear... I remember what an amazing tactician he was, all the time we studied together... But nothing at all about my mother. It's all just one big blank.
Morgan: Mother! That's amazing! I was just thinking about you! Is this fate?! This is totally fate! Family-style fate! ...Wait, no. How did Father put it? "We're not pawns of some scripted fate. It's the invisible ties that we forge that bind us." So yeah, it's not fate, it's the whole invisible bond-link...thing!
Morgan: Yup! Even without my memories, there's an invisible thread that links us. Er, but that reminds me... I was just wondering how I could have possibly forgotten you, Mother. Do you think maybe you could help me get those memories back?
Emmeryn: I'd be...happy to...
Morgan: Yay! Thanks so much! Oh, I can't wait to get started!
Morgan: Perfect! Then let's get started on Project Get Memories of Mom Back! Step one—figure out how we're going to trigger some flashbacks. I've already tried banging my head against a post, but nothing. I mean, it made me dizzy and nauseated, but it didn't unearth any hidden memories. What do you think, Mother? Perhaps a stone wall would work better?
Emmeryn: Maybe you...could stare at me?
Morgan: Argh, that's perfect! You're a genius! I must have seen your face a million times in the future. It's bound to bring SOMETHING back if I stare at it long enough. Okay, sorry to invade your personal space here, but... Here goes... ...... ......... ............ ............... Drats! It's not working. I don't remember a thing. It's like... Have you ever stared at a word so long it kind of fell apart? And you think, "Is that how that's spelled? Wait, is that even a real WORD?!" Except here it's "Is that what Mother looked like?"
Emmeryn: Maybe...you should take...a break...for today...
Morgan: Sure... I'm still a little dizzy from banging the post earlier, to be honest... But this doesn't end here! I'm not giving up until I remember you, Mother!
Morgan: *Sigh* No luck today, either... I'm going crazy trying to remember you. I feel so useless! I'm just so... *sniff* Why can't I... *sob*
Morgan: B-but I know I must have loved you just as much as I loved Father. I bet we had a million memories together, and the thought of having lost them... I feel like I failed you. Like I... Like I... *sob*
Morgan: *Sniff* S-sorry. I guess I got a little carried away there... Ngh! M-my head! ...Wha—?!
Morgan: I...I remember something! Just one tiny little memory, but...I remember! You were smiling at me...and you called my name... Ha ha! Yes! You looked a little bit older, but it was DEFINITELY you! Oh thank you, Mother. I never would have remembered without your help. And hey, this is great! If I can get one memory back, maybe I can get the rest! It may take time, but I won't stop trying until I remember everything about you.
