"It's been an honour to have known you, Tomoe-sama." Caestus said with a deep bow for the lady, before the goddess spoke up. Of course, he had already made up his mind regarding where he wanted to go, and what to do with his life from now on... While the others got their chances to say goodbye and all that, Caestus only watched from the sidelines, not even knowing half the people here... He... felt like an outsider here. Only been one of those last ones to pitch in at the very end, and while that was fine in his book, he felt a sting of jealousy, looking at the others... saying goodbye to eachother like life-long friends. And he had just shared this one night with them. How could he possibly join them in a time like this?
He'd look over to Jin, the one person he felt like he had at least some semblance of a connection to among these people... him and Tomoe, of course. "You sure about this, Jin?" He'd give the former teacher a questioning look, leaning against the wall. "I'm not going to stop you if it's what you truly want... I just want to know... why?" He wasn't really expecting an answer. The machine only wanted to understand the notion of not wanting a second chance at life again, that's all... A second chance... that made him think of something...
The android walked up to Tomoe after hearing Jin's answer, or lack thereof, depending on how the former teacher decided to act... "...Tomoe... Could I, a simple android, ask you of one last favor...?" He'd pause briefly before continuing.
"In this new world... Could you make me human...?"Something he had always wished to be since he met Shizuka... Sure, having a durable, non-aging body that could easily be repaired had it's perks but... if he ever had the chance to take a body made of flesh and bone, he'd take that without a second thought. He wanted to be more like those around him... The quality of life they had, the ability to cry, genuinely laugh, forget, remember and everything else that came out of being human. But above all, he wanted to discard his status as a weapon, being more seen as an individual... a person with a life. Was that too much to ask...?

She looked at Tomoe and gave her a thumbs up, “Nice going. Good to see that you beat the end of the world.” What else could she say? She barely knew Tomoe, but she did see her in action. She seemed alright. Naomi rolled her eyes at the blonde, “And I thought I overanalyzed situations.” His overanalysis reminded her too much of her own to let it be. Normally, she would be doing the same thing as him, but this time the answer was simple, “They’ll all still met one another. They’re bonded for life. That means, even if the reason they met isn’t because of the end of the world, will will still have met.” She would give him a dorky smile, “So stop that snowball effect before it starts rolling too quickly down the hill.”
When Yata spoke up for the first time since they arrived in the room, she would look toward the door with sadness in her eyes, “I figured you’d say that, after seeing you with everyone. I mean, I have to say the same thing. There’s nothing waiting for me in that new world.” She’d look toward him and give a small, sad smile, “It’s too bad. I finally found you after all this time, and it sounds like we’re going to be split up again.” Wasn’t that a tragic way to end this entire thing, “At least I finally got to see you again and tell you what I’ve been waiting to…”
When he bowed to her, she would scoff, “Please don’t do that. You make it seem like we’ll never talk to each other again.” Before he could step through the door, she would take his hands and give him a surprise kiss. She slipped the gift she had tried to give him earlier to him and backed away with a smile, “Let’s do this right before we part ways. Happy Valentine’s day. This is something I made for you, hoping it would bring you back home.” She laughed under her breath. It wasn’t a happy laugh. She couldn’t muster one, “I guess if it brings you to your new home, that’s just as good.”
She let go of his hands and stretched her arms behind her head, “As nice as your new paradise world sounds, I think I’m going to have to head back to my own. I have a family and friends waiting for me back in my world.” She hadn't even said goodbye to her mother or her other friends before she left. How could she follow? The answer was that she couldn’t. She would look at Ree and cast her eyes downward, “Take care of him like you have been. Just please make sure he’s happy.” She would then look at the girl named Four, “And don’t you ever forget that he loves you dearly.” She would once again turn to Yata, “And stay in touch. That thing isn’t just some badly put together keychain. It may work if you just want to e-mail me to say hi.” Emphasis on the may. She had no idea if that power would work in the new world.
So, this was goodbye, “I don’t care what mistake you made. You learned from them and you grew. Trust me, no one is perfect.” She hated it, “And don’t you dare think I’ll forget all of this. If I did, it would be the same as never have found you again.” She really hated it, and her eyes began to well up. Before she could stop herself, her tears started overflowing, “Even if it ends like this, I want to remember that I found you and got to tell you how I felt. I want to remember that you went off with people that care about you. So I can’t forget. I won’t forget.” Her tears became noticeable sobs that she had to choke through in order to speak. There was nothing elegant about her crying, but there was nothing elegant about how she felt right now.
A year or so ago, she wouldn't have been content with his decision and probably would have dragged him back, even if it killed him. Now, she knew better. Now she knew that this decision was his and she couldn’t make it for him. If this was what he decided, she would learn to be happy with it. But, she wasn’t right now, “I love you, Yata.” They were the only words she could get out right now.

Vera felt very out of place in this strange room. Others seem to know what it was, as if they had been there before, but not her. She made sure to stay more towards the Kings than the rest of the group. However, when Tomoe returned, she was honestly surprised to hear the news that came back with her. Tomoe was going to die in exchange for the world being reborn? Vera pinched her chin between her index finger and thumb at this news. Was she really going to sacrifice herself for their sake? The violet haired princess finally spoke, after taking her own little vow of silence the entire time.
"Tomoe, before this night I did not believe in Gods and Devils. Even with this power bestowed to us, I kept a blind's eye towards such possibility. Not because of disbelief, but more so reluctance to believe something else could ever hold power over my actions. But after meeting you, I can say I don't believe in Gods but I do believe in you. So, thank you." The Valentina thief bowed to Tomoe to show her thanks. She wasn't the type to cry, nor the type to get to close. This was already pushing it, but she believed giving thanks was what was in order.
Her attention shifted over to Yatagarasu and a young woman who seemed very close to him. He seemed to be leaving her behind for the new world. To think he'd turn his back on his love to be with the rest of the Kings was both happy and sad. She honestly wished for both of them to remain together, but that possibility was zilch. Though, this made her turn to Mikoto with a questioning gaze. Would he return to his own world now? After all, he was technically Mikoto Sora from another reality. Them coexisting in one reality could cause some issues could it? Did this mean she'd have to say goodbye too?
"Mikoto, I guess this is our time to part aswell? I hope you're not expecting tears from me." The Ice Princess spoke with a calm tone as she crossed her arms. On the inside, she felt like breaking apart. Like shattering like the ice she was so fond of. But she made sure to keep such emotion to herself. "I'm sure we'll see each other again. I'm completely positive... " She spoke the last words with a whisper before turning to give him a hug.
After spending some final moments with him, she'd make her way over to Mir's direction. This entire night she had given Mir such a hard time, but she knew they were on the same side. Now, she knew for a fact, they were allies. She extended her hand to shake Mir's, if she'd accept, and would give a thin smile. "Thank you for your help tonight aswell, Mir. And I'm sorry for how I treated you. I'm also sorry in regards to the Kogami situation. In this new world I'll make sure he doesn't get himself in trouble. I'm to blame for his death tonight, and I wish I could apologize to him aswell."
Vera fell silent before giving Mir a bow and making her way towards the door. Her eyes did flash to her other self who was on such friendly terms with blondie and Gabriella. Was that a possibility for her own life? Would she have been friends with them if Limbo were not involved in their lives? She supposed this new world would answer that question. However, before she reached the door, she suddenly turned to grab the purple haired young boy named Valentine. She had seen him before, and had her suspicions of his origins. It began to click to her at some point that he was somehow related to her on how he constantly kept peeking at her out the corner of his eyes.
To him it'd be like she was grabbing him to rough him up, but instead she pulled him into a hug. "Be good. Don't ever make the same mistakes your mother did tonight, okay?" And with red tinted cheeks, she broke the hug and darted out the doorway.

"Strange. I didn't take you for a coward." Ree would suddenly speak on regards to this man Jin deciding to disappear instead of traversing to the new world. "It's always easy to decide to disappear and be forgotten. That's the choice someone makes when they've given up on their beliefs. For someone with your knowledge; staying behind would be such a waste. This new world will need a teacher who's willing to help those in situations like mine. You talked down Mikoto and myself, and that was an impressive feat. Rethink your answer here, and don't be a fool."
The woman spoke with a calm tone as she sat with one leg folded over the other. Her eyes shifted this time to Yatagarasu and his lover. To think he was ready to leave her again, just for the Kings. There wasn't only one fool in this room right now. Ree stood from her seat and walked over to the two. Pulling Yata over, she'd use his shoulder to lean on and begin to speak. "You see me as your mother, huh? Then let me give you some advice. If you have a woman willing to travel worlds to find you, you don't leave them. You're not a kid anymore, and you've outgrown this family. So, as your mentor and mother, I give you one last mission. Go live your life and have an amazing adventure. And when you do, then come back to us. I know someone as determined as you will be willing to get back to us somehow."
"Yata-Onii-chan." The Fourth King spoke with a low voice as she walked to Naomi's side and took her hand. She was okay with not being reborn in the new world, as long as her Yata had what he wanted. Breaking apart the two was not on her agenda, even though she never wanted to share her Onii-chan with anyone else. Four had decided to travel to this world he had originally come from. This would be the best way to learn more about him, and his origins. But also she'd get to see him with someone that actually loved him as much as herself. "Let's go home with Onee-chan."
Yusugi sat in the corner of the room, watching the group say their goodbyes. This new world did sound like some sort of utopia, but the fact that Tomoe wouldn't be in it did stop him from celebrating. It felt it wasn't fair. If anyone had to disappear, shouldn't it be him? Maybe if he had Angra Mainyu's powers within him, he could be the one to sacrifice himself for a new world. But using that power would just turn him into another Yachiru. Yusugi sucked his teeth as he raised a hand into his green hair. "I'm sorry, Tomoe. You saved me, but I'm powerless to save you from your fate. I'm useless... If I was still Angra Mainyu, maybe then I'd be able to change all this."
This entire situation was being monitored by Gureen, who stood with his arms crossed, away from the group. He couldn't believe Yachiru had failed. He had put his entire faith in that man to change the structure of this world even if all the other worlds had vanished. But to think he'd fail so utterly caused Gureen to second guess the last few years. His piercing eyes would suddenly raise up to look towards Tomoe. "What happened to Yachiru?"
A question not only he wanted an answer too. The Second King stood from her seat almost immediately after hearing his name. She wanted to know aswell. Yachiru may have had his round about ways of doing business, but he was still respectable. She loved him while Gureen praised him.
This question about Chance. It did perk the ears of Rinne. Igor noticed this, and look towards the young woman. Giving a smile, he spoke with a clear tone for all to hear who wished to know of the missing Attendant. "Chance is no longer of this room. Like you, she has began a journey to understand her own Answer to Life's Greatest Question. One day I'm sure she'll return to all of you. However, this is a journey that only she can take alone. One day, each of you young ones will also have your own journey to take aswell. After all, we all walk a path that leads to a destination. Some of these paths are longer than others, but in the end, the journey's meaning is all the same."
Igor was very vague on his meaning as he folded his hands beneath his nose. With that said, the children that came from that alternate future began to give their goodbyes to their parents. Whether it be from hugs and kiss, smiles and laughs, or even tears: they all had their own places to be. The room was beginning to finally clear out. No matter who came from where, there was one thing in common. Everyone gave their thanks to Tomoe for what she was doing. Even the Demon, Ejji, bowed his head to her. It was unheard of that a demon would ever do such a thing for a human.
Mikoto was quiet as Vera made her exit. He knew there was nothing to say other than goodbye. She was right, after all. He had to return to his world. Mikoto never told anyone about the details of his world and where he came from. Did they really need to know about an alternate world with few differences? As long as the Mikoto Sora of this world survived, he did not mind going back. He only smile as he watched his 'brother' with the others. That's where he belonged. Mikoto, on the other hand, went to Tomoe on his way out. Slapping her on the back, he'd give a sly smile. "Sooo you actually pulled it off, huh? I know this should be a sad event, but I can't help but say I'm surprised. I mean after fighting you guys that first time I was sure you all wouldn't pull it together like this. You have my respect, Tomoe. Who would have thought a regular human would save the world and not a god? You were incredible.." The red head gave his final words before removing his gauntlet and handing it to her. Not much use for it where he was going anyway. It was time for him to make his exit aswell.
"M-Mother? Brother, you must understand what I've done was for science! And look, you're all having a happy ending, correct? And if it weren't for me, that Yusugi boy would still be controlled by Angra Mainyu, yes? Or no?.. huh?" The Scientist was confused herself. She scratched her head a few times before turning to look towards Tomoe. This was a specimen that went from Goddess to Human. Something she wished to study in all its entiriety. Walking up to Tomoe, she'd wrapped her arm around the young woman's waist and pull her closer. A scalpel appeared in her opposing hand and she twirled it playfully. "More importantly. Tomoe, before you disappear, may I dissect you, my Dear? I promise to be gentle."
Naie, on the other hand, shot to Naito's side and removed her phone. She began to scroll through numerous pictures of her little brother. "Yes, I do! This is him sleeping.. And then this is him waking up from sleeping.. And this is him getting mad at me taking a picture of him waking up after taking a picture of him sleeping.. and this.. !" The woman continued on, showing multiple pictures of her little brother. She was obviously a avid bro-con.

Jin thoughtfully let the smoke trail from the end of the burning cigarette. He knew what Ree said was right. He was the biggest coward of them all. She was right, it was much easier to disappear and die. That was why he even asked Tomoe to not let him come back. He never thought of himself as a great teacher either. That ship has already sailed long ago when Aburai attacked. "I was a broken man to begin with. I'm a hypocrite. A charlatan and a coward. I originally came to the Tower to die. To pay off for my own mistakes,"
he slowly and deliberately replied back to her and Caestus, "My meaning in life was lost when I killed the one I cherished long ago and I killed even more so in the battlefield when I was younger and more foolish. I ran away from the pain for so long. I had guilt that ate away in me in each day, emptying what left I had inside of me. The life's mediocrity made me felt like I was going mad in each day... I couldn't even protect my own students to keep my promise to the one I lost."
Jin was visibly bitter about it at first. Then he slowly became more somber. He closed his eyes for a moment. The teacher looked back at his younger days again. Could he actually still be a teacher? He wasn't even sure anymore. The man felt something moist in his eyes, but he looked up to avoid looking at anyone as the cigarette continued to burn and tried to blink them away.
But someone like Ree thought he could continue being a teacher. And by all means, she was right on many important accounts no matter what Jin would say against it. Most importantly, what would Wendy think? He knew what she would think, and that knowledge hurt. A lot. As much as he wanted to resist, he just--
Jin sniffed and said to Ree, "...I will regret this. Very well. I'll give life another chance."
He deeply sighed at this, annoyed more than ever. But, some part of him was glad. He would have to see what this next life would give him. There was still conflict inside of him. Did he truly deserve this next life? Jin will likely find out soon enough. But somehow, he knew he was just going to bumble about like earlier. "By the by, I haven't caught your actual name, Third."
It was strange to keep calling her by her title. Even though he was likely to forget it, it would be nice to hear what she called herself at least once. The former teacher watched Ree try to make the Fifth King change his mind. He crossed his arms and then chimed in after her."She's right, boy. Don't waste this chance. It's time for you to finally go home and be a family man,"
he agreed with Ree and cracked a sardonic smile at Yatagarasu's direction and at his expense, "It's about time you learn to be more responsible and grow further. Otherwise, it would be an utter shame for your personal babysitter."
Jin even visibly glanced at Mikoto with the same shit-eating grin. No doubt it would unnerve this boy as well, but at this point, he didn't really care since he was a little bit angry at himself; as inane as his own decision was. But it fell upon seeing Yusugi and hearing what he had to say about Tomoe. He can sympathize with the boy's sentiments. But, he flicked him on his forehead just as he flicked Tomoe’s earlier."Don't bother. Or else you are bound to make the same mistakes as your father, doing so would not only bring your own demise, but also waste Kyokudou's sacrifices. The best you can do for her is to live a life worth living. It's what she fought for in the first place, especially for your sake. That much you can do for her if you're feeling as guilty as you are,"
Jin sternly chastised the green-headed "former-god" as he roughly ruffled his hair in a pat. He could honestly see a little bit of himself in him. And he really wasn’t in the mood to see more people like Yachiru and him pop up.
Then he glared back at Soki. The mad scientist that had helped create the chaos of the tower. Naito seemed as if he could keep her in line. He seemed reliable on that end, for now."Touch her, and I will personally reconstruct your face with my fist,"
he warned her calmly while showing his callused hand clenched into a rock-like fist. Jin had been holding back for quite a while in the events in the Tower. There was a little part of him that was itching to smash his fist into someone's face.
Now, there was the last of the Kings, Gureen and Second King. While Jin hasn't seen what happened to Yachiru, he already can tell what had happened to him. Someone that was as empty as him, there was either continuing to rot away through life or die. There was no middle ground. And since he wasn’t here with Tomoe, it basically gave him the obvious answer. But it did bring concern on what would happen next. He stood near Tomoe, ready to have one last fight if Second King would finally lose herself. ”Let me ask you this, Second. Even after giving up his very humanity to strive to become a god, are you sure he’s still worthy of your affection and loyalty?”
Back when they were trying to get the Answer, Jin had said something about throwing away Humanity meant throwing away the meaningful relationships that validated their lives. As Yachiru did this, by default, he threw away Second King for his own selfish goals. With this logic in mind, would she still stick with him even if he was now rightfully deceased for all the pain and sins he caused and created? But he can sympathize with the Second King if she continued to pine after the deceased god-to-be.

Yatagarasu received the Valentine's Day Gift from her with round eyes. He had almost forgotten she had tried to give him something before. This gift was turning into a going away present, but for her he'd open in then and there to take a look at what it was. What he should have expect, but wasn't, was Naomi's tears at their final goodbye. Just watching her made his own eyes begin to water abit before he turn towards the door so she couldn't see. By all intents and purposes, he was going to walk through that door with his head held high. However, the sudden weight put on his shoulder stopped him in his tracks. It was his own mentor, Ree, giving him her last words of advice. For him to go live his life. All this talk about taking a journey must had been getting to her. However, perhaps she was right about this. Naomi had traveled words to reunite with him, and now it was like he was running away from her to start over. It caused him to look down at the Valentine's Gift, and then look over his shoulder at her and now Four by her side. He didn't want to break up from the Kings, but he didn't want to leave her.
But Ree gave him some hope that they'd meet again. Even if he forgot everything, he knew the plume in his heart would always bring them back together. The hot head closed his eyes and cursed under his breath as he turned to his mentor and gave her a hug. He had made so many mistakes this night. He had hurt and killed; but she had never stopped believing in him. Separating from her was one of the hardest decisions he would ever have to make. So when he broke the hug, he'd look up towards her. "Can you give me something I can remember you by? So I never forget you existed and can one day fight to find a way back to you?"
A simple question, but one that held alot of meaning to him. This would be his own Journey, and he'd fight for his own miracle. His final wish was to have everyone together again, no matter what world they belonged too. Perhaps this room would bring him that Answer to his Greatest Question. How far would he go to reunite his family and have his own happy ending? Being a guest of this room didn't seem so bad anymore. He turned to Igor and forcefully bowed his head to the long nosed man. "I apologize for what I said the first time I stepped into this room. Please, give me another chance to become a guest!"
No matter the lectures he received from anyone, he knew what he wanted now. This was something worth fighting for.

Ruo looked around at the familiar room, and smiled a little as the world came back. She walked towards Hibiki, and stood near him. "You did it. You helped the world, again. Tomoe is sort of like you? Perhaps before you leave maybe say something. But return back to me if you would. I have no other place to return to now...so if you're willing, I want to go wherever you do." She said, looking to the side. Was she...nervous? So strange for an android to feel that way. Did her software straighten out over time, or maybe it was, something else? In any event, she thanked those who fought on the ship with her both with a handshake, a bow, and to Mir, a hug as well. She helped them particularly, before returning to Hibiki.

So that was it indeed. The rest of it can be left to Ahura, and in the meantime, she could watch her friends go towards the world they wanted. She bowed to Shi and thanked her. When Jin came up however and wished for death, Tomoe smirked, and flicked his forehead. Even Ree called him a coward and convinced him to live. "I don't think I need to repeat what she said. I believe in you, and I never stopped believing in you. Go back to those who care for you." She appreciated when Jin tried to defend her from Soki. All the young woman did was giggle. "Sorry, there won't be enough time. Look for me in another world, or someone like me. I'm sure they'll help you." Looking at Sora closely, she caught his nod, and returned it in full. She understood some people just didn't do well with these surroundings. In fact, she remembered a similar girl like that, who came up to her and bowed, to which she returned it to her. "I'm glad you were here, Vera. You're more than you may believe, so don't give up." Seeing her run off made her a little sad, but she understood Vera and did not attempt to stop her.
As Naito approached her, Tomoe returned his smile with her fists at her side as though she was a soldier standing straight. "It's simply what I had to do. I heard you helped my friends face another God, and I won't forget that. Thank you Naito." Turning to the side, she saw Destiny approach her, and soon hug her tightly. She didn't even pause before hugging her back, though she could sense something from her. Tomoe didn't cry yet, but she swallowed and grinned with the light of the sun. "Don't worry about me. It'll be like taking a nap. I'll see you soon, I promise." She said, hugging her once more before letting her go after a few moments. She took a pace towards Caestus, who gave her a strange request. Not because the request itself was strange, but because he asked as though Tomoe may not do it. "Of course, count on it." She looked up; supposedly at Ahura, but she didn't know where she was. It made her feel better nonetheless.
She stepped towards Souka and pulled him into a hug, while running a hand through his hair affectionally like a mother or older sister might. She had a strange connection with him, though not this version of him per se. Still, she understood him and felt like they were closer than either of them knew. "I think whatever they will want to happen will happen." She told Souka, before slowly letting him go. She held her arm up to flex at Naomi for congratulating her. "Of course, that was my goal right? Now go back home, you earned it." She ordered. Though that had to be delayed as it looked like Sora and the others had their moment. She wanted to see those two happy, and though Sora found a family, Ree was right. Why leave her from the world he came from? She walked to Ree and offered a handshake should she take it. "You helped me in more ways than you know. I know wherever you go, you won't ever quit. Thank you." She turned to Fourth King and walked to her, though kept a fair distance since she was busy with the others. "It's good to see you back. I'm sorry for what happened, but you have a lot going for you now." After which, she left her to walk to the rest of the Kings. Gureen and Laura were sitting off, and she was stopped by his question. "Yachiru is....gone I believe. But I don't think he'll be gone forever. I think he learned what it meant to believe in your fellow human being. He was a man who would not be swayed, and that's respectable. I know that if he returns in a new life, he'll find you two again. I'm sure he cares for you just as he respects you." Tomoe said to Laura and Gureen.
Before she could turn to her final target, Mikoto caught her first, and Tomoe returned to match his face. "Mikoto. You gave us alot to think about at first. Thank you for your help. Maybe if we meet again we can practice a little fight." She nodded and accepted the gauntlet Mikoto gave her. So this was Kogami....she lowered her eyes as a small ounce of regret poked in her. She couldn't save him, but he would come back. She never wanted him gone truly; in fact without him some of the things they did this night may not have happened. She held the gauntlets close to her person, though not putting them on.
She walked towards Mir, smiling widely at her. "You did so much for me. I didn't know about you at first, but I am glad I welcomed you. Thank you so much. You earned this just as much as everyone else did." She grinned and turned to Kahn, giving him the biggest hug she could muster. "You were so reliable, and yet half the night I never saw you. I wish we got to speak more. I'm sorry, but good luck. I know you'll do whatever it takes to set anything you see wrong right." Hibiki was next; though she knew little about him. He and her shared sort of a connection. Both of them took on a huge responsibility for the world, though now, he would be returning to his world, as he deserved. She held out a hand to him. "Thank you for your help. You held it all back long enough to come back and help us fix it." To the rest from the other worlds, she approached and bowed deeply to them all. They were thrust into this world, and came together to bring everyone to normal.
And so that left Yusugi...
She walked to him in the corner, as he apologized to her. She shook her head, and grabbed his face by her hands and pulled him in for a kiss that was longer than any of them had previously shared. They had a little time, since the threat was now over. After reluctantly pulling away, she gave him a stern look. "Stop apologizing. What happened tonight was over, and I cannot be happier as to what happened. You can't just live your life in something you regret, otherwise you'll never enjoy anything anymore. You're not useless, you saved me remember? When I fought Angra, you wrenched control of him back, and stopped him from making it any worse. Stop putting yourself down, and saying you aren't worth it. You're worth it to me. I will move heaven and earth to find you again when, and if I get a next life. I promise. And like before, I'm going to keep it. Don't let my last memories of you be you sulking. Smile, hug me or something. Talk about what you'll do in your new life. Just be happy, with me until you have to go...okay?"

A sudden blade would be pointed towards the man named Jin who had threatened his sister so openly infront of him. Though Naito would never admit it, he was still over protective of even his older sister, not just his youngest one. "She will be my responsibility. If you touch a hair on her head, I will personally end you myself. And Soki, even in this new world if you do this again, I'll personally be sure to push for the Tsurinai Clan locking you away. It's not unheard of." He yanked his sister away from Tomoe and pulled her by her collar towards the door. It was now his turn to leave, and he was bringing her with him. He made sure to say his final goodbyes, and the last two people he'd meet on his way out would be Azame and Nakahara. "I guess I'll be seeing you both in the next world. You were my comrades here, and I'm sure even there we'll remain the same. Thanks for your help these past few years. And Hibiki, thank you especially for the sacrifice you made for us before."
Turning back to look towards Tomoe and the others, he'd give a final wave. "And Tomoe, look sharp. I have a feeling you've given way too much to just vanish. I'll be sure to remember you, and find you in this new world aswell. After all, there won't be a perfect ending if this was the last time we'd see you. It was great being a part of this team. Before, I never would have suspected I'd ever make friends in Ueitawa. Even without Limbo, I'm sure we'll all be drawn together somehow." He gave a smile before opening the door and vanishing in the bright light with Soki. Now it was his time to prepare for the transfer to this new world. He'd make sure it was a world worth making and protecting.

"Wait what's that supposed to mean? Or better yet, before you leave Tomoe, how about we go on atleast one da- Mmmph!" Aburai and Natashi apprehended their rambunctious friend as they looked towards Tomoe. It was out of Aburai's character, but he rubbed the back of his neck and looked to the side. "Thanks, Tomoe. I never thought you brats would pull this off, but maybe that close minded thinking was the thing that put me in my current situation. I've made alot of mistakes.. but.." The man spoke with a low tone as he looked across the room to see Lorielle and Company preparing to leave themselves. "I'd like to think you all taught me something. In this new world, I'll need to redeem myself and the choices I made."
Natashi slapped Aburai's back at this moment as he took a cigarette and placed it on his lips. "If he doesn't, I'll be sure to kick him back on the right track. It's the least I can do. Though, Tomoe I'm ashamed you didn't tell me you had such a mysterious background. That, in itself, makes you irresistible." The dark haired man smiled before a blade was pressed against his neck, belonging to no other than Kirito with Anya by her side. The two females gave their thank yous and goodbye to Tomoe before forcing the others out the door. Nola followed behind them with a nervous smile, attempting to calm them all down.
The Third King looked to Yatagarasu with a thin smile before raising her blade. "In this new world, I won't need this blade anymore. Though I entrusted my life to this blade named Philyra, I don't plan to follow the same path I did this life. But, perhaps she can protect you in my stead. And once your journey is complete, I only hope you return her to my side once you find me." She spoke with a wavering tone as she placed her blade in the palms of his hands. Ree never believed she'd be split from her weapon, but she knew there would be no use for such weapons in the future.
The dark haired woman looked towards the man who had decided to return to the real world, and he asked her name. Something she rarely gave out, but seeing how her time as a King was coming to an end she decided to answer. "My name is Ree Claire. Though, it's not like you'll remember it, you know?" The woman chuckled to herself before she turned back to the King group. She believed they would be drawn together again aswell. But for now, she gave her goodbyes. When it came to Four, she would kneel down and give her a hug. "You need a name, Little One. If you're Yata's younger sister, and he's supposedly my son, then I'm your Mother. As your Mother it's my duty to give you a name. So from now on, your name is Claire. Make sure to protect Yata until we're together again, okay?"
She let Claire go and would give a final wave. With this, Ree was the first King to head into the new world. Before she could leave she was approached by Tomoe. The young woman held out a hand and Ree shook it. "We may have been enemies, but I still wish you the best wherever you end up after this. Thank you." With this, Ree departed from the room.
The Second King clawed the side of her head at the news of Yachiru disappearing. "W-What!? Yachiru-sama left me behind again!? I.. I.. !" The young woman fell to her knees and hung her head low. "You don't understand anything about the Man Yachiru-sama truly was. He took us in when we had no other place to go, and he made his agenda very clear. Even then, we stood by him till the end. He may have threw away his humanity, but he did it to try and achieve a goal not just any human could. Yachiru-sama had his own motivations... I know I loved him." The young woman picked herself up from the floor and materialized a blade in her hand. One would half expect her to attack, however the bandaged hand of Gureen rose to lower her own.
"Yachiru disappeared then? If I do not see a body, then I cannot believe such a man to be dead. If that's the case, I will boldly walk into this new world and find him again. Perhaps he will be reborn aswell. Second King.. No, Laura. Will you join me in finding our Master? Even if he's a different man, standing by his side is all we truly need." Gureen spoke with a calm voice as the Second King looked towards him and slowly nodded. Her blade vanished, and she followed her leader through the doorway to the new world. "I won't put your new world in jeopardy. But, I won't give up on Yachiru's dreams. Next time, we'll change things with human hands instead of relying on the Gods."
Those were the final words before the two vanished...
Yusugi, being one of the last Kings in the room, would be completely focused on Tomoe. The sudden kiss did make the young man turn a certain shade of red as he straightened up. "You're right... I should be thinking about the happy moments we've had together, even if they were too short. In my new life, I'll try to live for the both of us. All the places I've wanted to see with you, I'll go see. All the things I wanted to do with you... I'll still try. I'll force myself never to forget you." And after this, he'd pull Tomoe into a hug as if he didn't want to leave whatsoever. However, all moments had an end and theirs in the room was coming to one.
Igor unfolded his hands from beneath his nose and looked towards Yatagarasu first. "You've never stopped being a guest of this room since the last time you were here. You'll always be welcomed back until you've found your own answers." His attention switched to Tomoe, and he gave a wide smile. "You were a wonderful guest. Truly magnificent. We can only hope those in the future who hold the power of the Wild Card show such potential as you. But now, we must end this. You all have a brave new world to cross into. You've all been marvelous guests."
Yes, their time was up. The Velvet Room that was so vibrant before was now fading away before them. Those remaining were being drawn by the bright light of the doorway, and now their destination would be the world they sought within their hearts.

We're wrapping up things here. Start doing your final posts, and then you have the option of doing an Epilogue post in your chosen reality. Those who chose to go to Ueitawa can post their Epilogue in those boards. Those who chose to go back to the Azores reality can head on back, and those who chose another reality can post their Epilogue in the "Ueitawa Station" boards under the Ueitawa forums.

He snorted at Tomoe and refused to say anything more on it. There really was only one person he wanted to see again. Or really, just two. There was still Lorielle. She was someone who died too early and wasn't the one that deserved to die. It's funny, Tomoe seemed to remind him of her in several ways...
He pat her head for the first and last time while saying, "You've done well, Kyokudou."
Jin only returned a curt nod towards the Tsurinai. So as long as he could keep Soki from performing any more of her world-destroying shenanigans, there was no cause for conflict. There was nothing else to be said, and he let the boy and his sister leave. "Perhaps. But I just find it unfair that you know mine and I don't know yours until the very end,"
he shrugged his shoulders at the former swordswoman, "Good luck in the next life, Ree."
With that said and done, he watched her make the last farewells before leaving for good. But he still had to watch out for the Second King. She was the only actual threat in the Velvet Room. Jin would only listen to what Laura had to say. And there was a lot he disagreed with from the words she chose. But he knew at this point that she wouldn't listen. Someone this tied to a 'corpse' like him was way too sure of herself for her own good. It was sad...
Jin's fists were ready to fly as her blade materialized once more. A final fight for this story to end. Yet, Gureen stopped her, allowing him to let his hands fall to his sides. The thought that these two would still find Yachiru saddened him even more. There were better people who deserved this kind of loyalty and Gureen wasn't the first person he saw on a battlefield who was this loyal to a master.
He nodded at Gureen and looked back at Laura, "Then I hope for your sake that you can actually guide Yachiru than be a follower next time around. If you truly love him, get him to follow a path that isn't destructive. Even if it means earning his displeasure."
Those were the only words he gave to her before watching them leave. There were a couple left, but none of them that he cared too much. Except for the alternate Lorielle. He really didn't have any words for her. She was the same, but not the same. Jin only bowed down his head in her direction. Whether she knew who he was or not, that was on her.
He gave one last wave to whoever was left that cared about him leaving.
"Good luck to everyone of you. Good bye. Oh and Tomoe? Thanks. Thanks for everything."
With his final farewell, he also finally left the room to wherever his heart truly desired.

A faint smile made it's way across the android's lips when he heard Tomoe's answer... "Thank you, Tomoe... for everything. I hope we see eachother sometime in this new world. Under better circumstances, I'd wager." His eyes followed Jin as the man left the room... Perhaps it was about time he followed suit... After all, he didn't wish to overstay his welcome, nor did he want to keep Shizuka waiting... Finally, after so long, he had finally gotten the rest he deserved... After ten whole years of service to his creators... his time had come. A new life would be born shortly... He stopped in front of the door, looking back at the others that still remained within... "I wish you all a good future... with a little luck, we might just see eachother again." He would never forget what they had done... never. And with those thoughts in mind, he opened the door, and took his first step into his new life...

Naomi squealed internally when the little girl that was Yata’s sister took her hand. She was so cute that Naomi could barely stand it. She was going to be the most spoiled child in the world if Naomi had anything to say about it. Though, it was with that one action of hers that this sad goodbye seemed to change into a different kind of parting. Yata was going with her and Four was joining them? That made her smile, but it also made her worry. She didn’t want to split up his family. Though, he was not one that ever seemed unsure of himself.
She would wait for him to finish up his last minute business with Ree. A sword, huh? In the short time Naomi had known her, that seemed strangely appropriate. Though, she would chuckle at her final statement under her breath. If anyone even tried to hurt Claire or Yata, she would take care of them long before either of them even realized what was going on.
She would looked down at Claire and smile as Ree left, “You ready to see Yata’s homeworld?” The three of them were going back together. She wasn’t sure how they’d fill in the blanks of the confession, Claire’s arrival, or where the heck Yata had been over the last year, but she was sure they’d be able to deal with it. Claire and Yata would be a family, and that made her smile for the both of them. She would then look to Yata, “I guess we’d better get going.” She never once let go of Claire’s hand in this time. In fact, she’d motion for Yata to take the girl’s other hand. She didn’t know how long it would take until the memories faded, but she would be sure they were all together and they knew they were supposed to stay that way when they came out the other side.
She would give one last smile to both of them, “You ready?” When they both were, she’d gladly lead them towards the door. Azores, their home, was on the other side. She couldn’t wait until they were back. Before she stepped through, she would steady her grip on Claire’s hand. She had to make sure they all came out together.
--Heading back to Azores--

They had done it...they had won! Tomoe did it! It had been a long fight with lots of up and downs, but they had managed to find the answer. Kahn should not have been shocked by the news, but it was kinda hard not to be. A human overcoming a god, well it wasn't the first time today that it had occurred. The young man smiled as everyone celebrated, yet a few were clearly worried about the news that they would be without their memories and how the world could change to the point that they might not be friends."With friendship like ours...we'll find our way back to each other. Unless we simply don't want to be friends, but after everything that has happened thus far...I'd say that is pretty unlikely to occur."
He said, to be honest he wasn't too worried about never finding his friends. Humans could overcome a god, and do so much more. Kahn had a tendency to follow his heart over his head, and he had a feeling that everything would work out just fine. The young man waved as people departed, giving them a nod of his respect, and laughed at a few of the final antics.
As Destiny hugged him, he patted her on the back, "Thanks, and the same goes for you. So don't worry, I'm sure we'll meet again, I have faith in all of us that we will somehow find our way back to one another."
The young man said, he was very optimistic about their future to say the very least. The young man then went over to Hibiki."Sorry you had to go through that, I'll make it up to you...somehow in the next life. We all owe you a lot to say the very least."
He said offering a firm handshake, and once it was either declined or rejected, he would move on. He was going to pay his debts to everyone who had fought, and everyone who was willing to give them all a chance, and even if he didn't see eye to eye with some of them. He looked to the others from the other worlds, "Safe travels, I do hope you all are happy in your worlds."
He said, making sure that those who had helped them from all these other worlds would be safe as well. Everyone had given something to ensure that they would be walking toward a new future, and Kahn wanted to make sure that they knew that their help was appreciated. However, he had a special message for his son, who he would give a gentle punch to his shoulder."I wish I had been able to spend more time with you now, so I could learn more about you, but I know that there is an entire future, where I'm going to be spending a lot of time with you. Anyways, I'll save you the speech about doing what's right and eating your vegetables."
The young man said holding on to his son's necklace, which Destiny gave to him before leaving, "I'm not going to say goodbye because this isn't a goodbye. I'm going to see you later, your mother too. What I will say is this, no matter what you do or how you act. There is no way you will be able to seperate yourself from my love. I don't want you to ever forget that, alright?"
he said before bringing his son into a big ol' bear hug and squeezing really tight. After the moment had passed, he smiled before going towards Tomoe. "I just want to thank you for staying with us and fighting with us. I'll never forget you despite how hard the reality tries...you have done so much for us and the future...I hope that I'll be able to find you again so I can thank you again for everything you have done for us."
He said before starting to turn away and approaching the new reality, he paused and looked back at Tomoe, "You know a lot of stories involve a hero who sacrifices themselves to ensure that the rest of us get a happy ending, but usually the hero doesn't get to know how it ends. They just have faith in all those that they're fighting for, you've been granted a very special chance of seeing how it is ending. Yet...I believe...that you'll get to see more than the ending. I think you'll be seeing the new beginning too."
He said as he turned back and left the room. Kahn did not say goodbye, because he did not believe in those goodbyes...he actually prefered to say nothing. A friend once told him.
"Never say goodbye, if you don't say goodbye, then you aren't really gone, you're just not here right now."
