Maribelle & NotteTrick or treat!
Lover of Sweets Maribelle
Syrupy Faerie Notte
SophieHere you are—a single marshmallow. Now be good friends and share it between the two of you, all right?
MaribelleWhoa, ANOTHER one? Halloween is the beeeeest!
NotteWho should we go to next? ...Oh!
Soft-hearted Captain Karina
KarinaMaking a candy house in the garden, eh? How very refined, Euden.
Maribelle & NotteTrick or treat!
KarinaIt's dangerous to only give a pirate those two options. You two must be brave as the sea itself, by gar!
KarinaSo then! What sort of trick are you planning to pull on me if I don't make with the treat booty?
MaribelleWeeell...we could maaaaybe...
NotteEr, we didn't really plan that far ahead.
KarinaPfft. What a waste! Halloween is the one time of year when you can prank people but good. You need to plan an epic trick!
NotteYeah, I guess you're right... All right, then! We're gonna trick fools like they've never been tricked before!
MaribelleEr, but what kind of trick should we DO? I can't think of any good ones.
Karina*sigh* You two are hopeless. But fine! I'll give you some pointers so you can enjoy both the "tricks" and the "treats."
NotteWe can have both? Yaaaaaay!
KarinaRight then! We're going to form a gang that does nothing but celebrate Halloween. And we'll be called...the Plunder Pals!
KarinaFrom this point forth, you will refer to me as "Captain." Now weigh anchor, lassies!
Vice...Why on earth would they put an assassin in charge of making dinner?
XainfriedThis pie's done. How's the soup coming along?
ViceAlmost finished. I just need to add my secret ingredient to spice it up...
KarinaGahar har har! Trick or treat, mateys! It be us—the Plunder Pals!
XainfriedAre you implying that these adorable children are freebooters of some manner?
KarinaThat's right! We're a band of merry pirates who appear but once a year on Halloween. ...And we'll start by plundering that pie. Yoink! *munch* *crunch* *slobber*
ViceHey! Don't steal our food!
Karina*munch* *smack* Oh wow, that was good. Now you two! Grab a slice and chow down!
MaribelleEr, is it really okay for us to do that? We haven't eaten our vegetables yet.
KarinaWho cares? This is our Halloween trick!
NotteWeeeeell, in THAT case... *horf* *chomp* Oh man, pumpkin pie whaaaaat?!
Maribelle*sluuuuurp* Mmm! This pumpkin soup is warming me all up!
ViceOh yeah? Heh. That's good to hea—HEY! STOP STEALING OUR FOOD!
ViceI'm serious, now! Stop stealing food or we won't have anything left for dinner.
KarinaGahar har har! You won't get rid of us that easily! Now give us a treat, or the tricks will continue unabated!
ViceWait. You play a trick first, THEN demand treats? ...Is that really how this works?
XainfriedEr, will this pie be enough? I originally made it for Fydon and Felyx, but humans can eat it as well.
ViceHey! Stop helping them!
XainfriedIt is an adult's duty to look the other way when it comes to children's pranks— particularly so on Halloween.
ViceOne of them is a hell of a big kid... But eh, fine. Give me a second to whip up some baked goodies here.
Maribelle & NotteWooooo!
KarinaSee how it works, you two? You prank right out of the gate, then blackmail 'em to get the sweet, sweet booty.
Maribelle & NotteAye aye, cap'n!
RyozenHmm. Perhaps we can both forget this game ever happened.
KarinaTrick or treeeat! The Plunder Pals have arrived!
RaemondWell, look at these excitable young lasses. What can we do for you?
KarinaIt's time for a Halloween trick, old man! Show 'em what ya got, Maribelle.
MaribelleAye-aye, captain! Um, so, I guess... I'll move THESE!
RaemondNo! My checkmate!
MaribelleYep! And if you don't give us treats, I'm gonna move 'em even MORE!
RyozenHeh. Well, we certainly can't have that. Here then—take these steamed buns.
MaribelleHey, what gives? We're tricking the heck out of you, but you sound all impressed.
RyozenDon't be an old fuddy-duddy, Raemond. Give the children a treat.
RaemondFuddy-duddy? How dare you, sir! ...Fine then. If I give you something, will you stop interfering with our game?
KarinaAll right, time to make for our next target. Steady on, lassies!
Verica...Um, Notte? When you're bobbing in front of me like that, I can't see the crystal.
PhiliaUgh. Just move, already! The crystal ball is showing us how to get the prince to a wedding hall!
NotteTrick or treeeat! ...Oh, and I'm not leaving till you give us treats, if you're confused about how this works.
PhiliaOh, are you SERIOUS?! Okay, fine— take these cookies and get out of my face already.
VericaEr, I have some sugar plums. Will those do?
NotteHee hee! We win again!
KarinaYou two are really getting the hang of this. So next we have—
EstelleStop right there!
NotteOh. Estelle. What's your problem?
EstelleYou know what it is! Just because it's Halloween does NOT mean you can run amok playing tricks and making a mockery of common decency. It's inexcusable!
EstelleAs a preacher, it is my duty to correct you with the Loving Hand!
MaribelleNooooo! I don't want a Loving Haaaand! What are we gonna do, Captain?!
KarinaHold your ground, lassies! In times like these, you just have to... Whoa.
KarinaIs that...Euden?! In a Halloween costume?! He's soooo handsome!
EstelleKarina, there's no way I'm going to be distracted by such an obvious ploy. Give me SOME credit here.
Estelle...Still, what if she's serious and I miss it? Maybe I can just... *peek*
KarinaNOW! Plunder Pals, full speed ahead!
EstelleH-hey! Get back here!
And so, the Plunder Pals sailed from one end of
the castle to the other, plundering treats and
engaging in every manner of trick imaginable.
MaribelleMmm! These treats are delish... This is a haul fit for a queen!
NotteTreats that you get after tricking people just taste better for some reason.
MaribelleI think I could get used to this life. That's probably a bad thing, huh?
KarinaA little excess once in a while is fine. You live but a single time, after all.
NotteThis was super fun, Captain Karina. Thanks for helping us!
KarinaI should be thanking the two of you! I had a really good time.
KarinaBut alas, this is where the Plunder Pals must disband. However, I have one last thing I'd like to say to you...
KarinaWhen times look rough, get greedy! That's how you live a life without regrets. Got it?
Maribelle & NotteAye aye, captain!
