Story/A Snowy Night Capriccio/E1-1 (Part1)
DestroyerTwo years ago today, we had a party... last year today, I got a present from Agent... This year... there's absolutely nothing this year...
DestroyerIt's Christmas today, let's play a fitting song.
S.F. MusicSurroundings analyzed. Playing a human song written in the 20th century titled "Prison Grove".
S.F. Music"An icy wind burns and scars..."
S.F. Music"Rushes in like a fallen star..."
S.F. Music"Through the narrow space between these bars..."
DestroyerThat's enough, now shut up.
Destroyer(Sigh) I really wanna celebrate Christmas...
Destroyer... So, Agent. What's our plan for Christmas this year?
AgentWhat Christmas plan?
AgentAre you unaware of how dangerously low our supplies are?
DestroyerStop acting. It's just us here, if you tell me I promise I won't tell.
AgentIt would appear that leaving you idle was a mistake.
AgentTake this manifest and do an inventory check.
AgentYou can speak to me again about a Christmas plan once you get a grasp of the situation we are in.
DestroyerAs much as I know she's telling the truth from taking inventory...
DestroyerI still don't want to give it up...
DreamerAgent sure is getting reckless, enough to leave inventory to you.
DreamerAlthough, considering how little supplies we have, I suppose even an idiot can count them, right?
Destroyer... Are you... calling me an idiot?
DreamerYou said it, not me.
DreamerCome to think of it, according to the recon report we just received, Griffin is having a huge Christmas celebration.
DestroyerWhat?! Those Griffin T-Dolls can afford to celebrate Christmas even though they're poor enough to scavenge our parts?
DreamerTheir Commander left the base early in the morning, presumably to go shopping in the city.
DreamerWell, even though we can't spare the effort to have a proper celebration, we can at least play some Christmas songs to lift the mood.
DreamerIt's Christmas today. Play something fitting.
S.F. MusicSurroundings analyzed. Playing a Christmas song.
S.F. Music"We wish you a merry Christmas."
S.F. Music"We wish you a merry Christmas."
S.F. Music"We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year! ♪"
DreamerSomeone's got a bad temper today.
DreamerHowever... we could redirect that temper toward something... more productive...
DestroyerThen I'll go scouting. It's not like I've got much to do today anyway.
DestroyerI might even seize some supplies to fill up our empty warehouse.
DreamerHow unusual, the idiot has the resolve to volunteer for a mission.
DestroyerSo you WERE calling me an idiot!
GagerAre you guys about to go scout out the Griffin base?
GagerYou can't trust an idiot to carry out a mission on her own, let me go with her.
DestroyerHEY! How can you act so snobby while eavesdropping?
DestroyerAnd who did you call an idiot?!
GagerI called an idiot an idiot.
GagerI'll meet you at the back gate in ten minutes.
DreamerThis dreary Christmas is starting to liven up. ♪
???... We've already given the Commander a heads-up, please do take care of Gr G11 for us, Kalina.
???We will return immediately once we acquire the necessary supplies.
???Well. all she does is sleep anyways. Just think of her as an ugly, heavy vase that we've deposited for safekeeping.
???Just sleep tight here, Gr G11. You'll get the surprise you've always wanted when you wake up~ ♪
KalinaOh, you never took the gift from last Christmas with you!
KalinaYou can still wear it this year, and I get to save some money on buying another present. ♪
Gr G11Hmm... Christmas...
Gr G11Presents... Heheh...
KalinaMerry Christmas, everyone! What a wonderful day!
KalinaOur commander had to leave the base on short notice for work...
OTs-44(Sobs) Commander... How could this be?
SpringfieldI'm sure it must be something important, otherwise the Commander definitely would've spent Christmas with us.
WA2000W-who cares?! I'll celebrate Christmas even without the Commander!
SVDIf the Commander isn't here, the booze in the cellar is fair game, right?
SuomiYou nasty barbarians are thinking about sneaking booze out of the cellar now that the Commander's away, aren't you?!
SAAOnly one way to settle this, it's duel time! Winner takes this can of cola I have!
CZ75Oh, it's time to duel? Now that you mention it, I still have a score to settle with NZ75...
AmeliIt looks lively in here...
KalinaAhem! That's enough, settle down!
KalinaThe Commander can't spend Christmas with us this year, but—!
KalinaWe should still have a proper celebration, for all the hard work we put it!
KalinaWhich is why I've decided to organize the first ever Secret Santa at Griffin!
KalinaI've already sent out the document explaining the details.
KalinaTo put it simply, everyone prepares a present and leaves it at a designated location with a given number.
KalinaAfter that, everyone who has deposited their present will get to draw a number for a random present. All free of charge, of course!
KalinaIsn't that exciting?!
KalinaWhat's even more exciting...
KalinaThe Commander has also prepared a gift. We'll have to see who's lucky enough to get it!
SAAYaho! Commander must've prepared a year's worth of cola for me!
Am RFBAs if! I'm sure it's the newest game bought especially for me!
AmeliHmm... Guess I'll just include the button that just tore off of my jacket in the present.
SuomiI gave the Commander an introductory CD last year... Then this time I'll...
WA2000Preparing gifts and whatnot is such a chore... But since it's already decided, guess I'll just have to do it properly...
SpringfieldThen let's all head out to search for present materials around the base.
Gager... Spying on Griffin's Christmas plans? Did you really come all the way here for something so pointless?
DestroyerThough we are both Sangvis, the difference between our artistic pursuit and discipline is obvious.
DestroyerFor instance, I can precisely tell how pointless it is to persist in giving the traitor, Architect, a present every year.
Gager... Cut the chit-chat while we're at work.
GagerLook out, the Griffin groundhogs are coming out of their hidey-holes.
