Script[edit]

XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png This ether lamp... It's like the ones in Tephra Cave.
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png You mean the ones on the route between our two colonies?
Those would have been put there by people from Colony 6.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png You learn something new every day.
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png You see the yellow glow?
That's because the lamp uses electric ether crystals.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png Didn't know that either.
I guess some days you learn two new things.
I do know that electric-type crystals glow the brightest.
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Bingo!
Once upon a time, replenishing lamps with fresh ether was my job.
It was my very first job, actually.
I used to follow the route all the way down into the Ether Mine.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png Sounds like fun!

XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png I used to get lost when I started. But I soon got the hang of it.
We used to time each other to see who could get it done quickest.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png You mean...you and Gadolt?
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Am I that obvious?
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png You start talking about your old life and I see tears...
It had to be Gadolt.
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Didn't think you were even paying attention.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png Oi! I always pay attention to you.
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Shulk said something interesting to me once.
He thinks you're...insensitive when it comes to this kind of thing.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png He can talk! The only girl he's ever talked to is Fiora!
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Hahaha. I'm almost jealous. I mean, of your male camaraderie.
I wonder what it would be like. Being a guy, doing guy things...
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png Like fighting alongside Gadolt?

XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png I know I can't change the past, whatever I do or say.
But when everyone fled the colony during the attack...
I was so...angry!
I wanted to be by his side, and fight to the end with him.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png One good thing came out of it all. You met us.
Me and Shulk couldn't have got far without you, Sharla.
We really needed you.
And those people at the camp. I saw how they needed you.
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Reyn... I...
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png Wait, I've got that all wrong. There's no 'needed' about it.
We need you more than ever.
You and your healing abilities are a vital part of our team.
That Heal Bullet of yours has saved my bacon more than once.
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Thanks. It's nice to feel needed.
And you're right... I have an important role to play.
One I couldn't have fulfilled if I'd stayed and fought.
Thank you, Reyn.
You have an amazing calming effect on me, you know that?
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png That's funny... I'd say the same about you!
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Just remember that you can't rely on me forever.
Someday you'll have to learn how to fight properly.
You know...without taking so many knocks on the head.
XC1 affinity heart large.png +300
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png Haha! No promises, but I'll give it my best shot.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png Gadolt would just be a friend.
XC1 affinity heart small.pngXC1 affinity heart small.pngXC1 affinity heart small.pngXC1 affinity heart small.png +50
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Hehe. Even the most ridiculous thing is a serious question to you.
It's quite sweet actually. I guess that's why I like you.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png What? What am I missing here?
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png I meant that if I were a guy, I might have been able to fight.
I could have stayed with Gadolt in Colony 6 until the end.
That's all.
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png I really didn't want to leave without him.
Not while the Mechon were destroying the entire colony.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png I'm so sorry, Sharla.
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Maybe I should have just kicked up a fuss like a little girl.
Refused to leave.
He always thought the best of me. Trusting in me, relying on me.
But I was never as strong as he thought.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png I'm sure letting you go was just as hard for him.
But he put his feelings aside for your sake.
So you could live on. So you could lead the colony.
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png I know.
But...I miss him so much.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png Cheer up, Sharla!
Hey, how about this? From now on I'll work really, really hard...
And then one day I'll be the man of your dreams!
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Heh. How long's that gonna take?
I can't spend my entire life waiting around!
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png That's my Sharla all right!
I like you best when you're giving me that big old smile of yours.
XC1 affinity heart large.png +300
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Looks like you're learning fast! Keep those compliments coming.
And by the way, Reyn... Thank you.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png Must've been tough.
XC1 affinity heart small.pngXC1 affinity heart small.pngXC1 affinity heart small.pngXC1 affinity heart small.png -50
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Not really. It wasn't that bad.
I just kept my eyes on the prize.
Otharon used to give me a pretty good reward whenever I finished.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png Oh yeah? What'd he give you?
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png A small ether crystal shard.
Not big enough to give out any energy on its own.
But when I had enough, I'd combine them to make a cartridge.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png You could do that back then? Wow. That's some talent.
When Shulk asks me to do gem crafting, he ends up hating me.
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Colony 6 relies on its ether mining. We grow up with it.
So using ether and manipulating it to make things comes naturally.
Thinking about it brings back so many memories...
I collected crystal shards of all different colours.
Then I tried mixing them together.
I thought I might be able to make an entirely new colour of crystal.
I combined things like...
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png Electric, wind and water?
XC1 affinity heart small.pngXC1 affinity heart small.pngXC1 affinity heart small.pngXC1 affinity heart small.png +50
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Yeah, things like that.
If you mix yellow and blue paint, you get green, right?
I figured it had to be the same for ether crystals, so I tried it out.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png Did you get it to work?
I had a go at doing something like that once.
Taking bits of different crystals and mixing them all up.
Then Shulk started shouting at me for wasting all our good crystals.
So I just kinda gave up.
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png I guess it's different in Colony 9.
You don't have a limitless supply of crystals like we do.
Me, Gadolt and Juju used to experiment all the time, but...
If the colour is different, forget it. All you get is a pile of soot.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png Funny, isn't it?
Only a small difference and things don't mix well.
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Like men and women...
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png Where did that come from? We were talking about ether crystals.
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png It's this place. I just can't help thinking about certain things.
I learnt so much from Gadolt. About rifles, cartridges, fighting.
If only I could turn back time...
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png Don't be so down on yourself.
All that frowning is gonna give you wrinkles.
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Not the nicest way to put it, but I can see what you're getting at.
Sorry, Reyn. I guess I'm not really acting like myself...
But talking to you like this makes me feel calm somehow.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png I don't even know what you're supposed to be apologising for.
But whatever it is, it doesn't matter.
Now, how about we try mixing up some different colour crystals?
We could be the first people ever to make a new colour!
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Maybe now's not quite the right time for that.
But one day I'll teach you all there is to know about ether crystals.
You have to handle them with care, like a woman's heart!
XC1 affinity heart large.png +300
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png Ouch. I get the feeling this stuff's never gonna be my forte...
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png Wind crystals and glowmoss?
XC1 affinity heart small.pngXC1 affinity heart small.pngXC1 affinity heart small.pngXC1 affinity heart small.png -50
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png What?
What does glowmoss have to do with anything?
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png I just figured 'cos of the colour.
Glowmoss is green and wind-type ether crystals are green, right?
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Reyn, even if that made the slightest bit of sense...
I was talking about combining DIFFERENT colours! Remember?
But...you have got me wondering what would happen.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png Then let's give it a go!
You and me. Could get interesting!
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Gadolt used to experiment with these things as well.
Him and Otharon tried all different things when making cartridges.
He used to get so mad when whatever he was trying failed.
He taught me all this. Using rifles, constructing cartridges.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png Oh, sorry about that. Didn't mean to remind you.
I just thought it might be cool to hang out and combine crystals.
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Oh, stop it, Reyn. You don't have to tiptoe around me.
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png I just don't want to upset you.
XC1 tension icon Sharla normal.png Just keep being you, Reyn.
Now, let's find some glowmoss.
XC1 affinity heart large.png +300
XC1 tension icon Reyn normal.png So we're gonna try out my idea? Nice!
Trust me, we're gonna make the best ether crystal ever!
Even that old geezer Otharon'll be impressed!
