"If this all goes as badly as I expect, you have to swear to me. Swear that if we have our friends you will get them the heck outta here, and if we don't then you will get them and you will not hang around waiting for me, or trying to save me. Because I will be thrice damned if I'm going to sacrifice my soul just to lose everyone else's. You promise me you'll get them home. Because I am scared as big dragons shouldn't be scared even if it isn't really my bodyand; that's just not right. We are gonna do this, though. And it is going to work."
"And then I'm gonna cry, cuz this is really scary." *whimper*
