1st Twilight - Text

[Mammon had been around for a few days, just looking this... land over before she decided to make use of her journal.]

My beloved hometown, the sweetfish river running through it.
You who seek the Golden Land, follow its path downstream and seek the key.

If you follow the river downstream, you will find a village.
In the village, look for the shore the two will tell you of.
There sleeps the key to the Golden Land.

He who lays hand upon the key shall travel under the rules below.

At the first twilight, you shall lift up as sacrifice the six chosen by the key.
At the second twilight, the surviving shall tear apart the two who are close.
At the third twilight, the surviving shall praise my honorable name on high.
At the fourth twilight, gouge the head and kill.
At the fifth twilight, gouge the chest and kill.
At the sixth twilight, gouge the stomach and kill.
At the seventh twilight, gouge the knee and kill.
At the eighth twilight, gouge the leg and kill.
At the ninth twilight, the Witch shall be revived and none shall be left alive.
At the tenth twilight, the journey shall end and you should reach the village of gold.

The Witch will praise the wise, and should bestow four treasures.
One shall be, all the gold from the Golden Land.
One shall be, the resurrection of the souls of all the dead.
One shall be, even the resurrection of the lost love.
One shall be, to put the Witch to sleep for all time.

Sleep peacefully, my most beloved witch, Beatrice.

I'm surprised I'm not supposed to pass this on to five people or face the consequences of your terrible curse.

[The utter deadpan and lack of inflection to the voice of the plain girl in the picture window suggest she's not very overawed by the arcane.]

I usually throw those chain letters out.

[Wow, creepy and vaguely incoherent? The journal system gets a bit more like the internet every day - and that's probably why it's almost inevitable that Jack responds.]

. . . and that bit about the ninth twilight doesn't quite convince everyone that this Golden Land business might not be such a good idea?

On the eleventh twilight, the God of Mischief shall show up and intone, now what's all this nonsense here?

And he will be a bit put out, because this village is where he currently keep his things.
Not that it makes a difference, you see, because the noisy mortals will be back in a week anyway.
And full of complaints.
So that ought to be fun to watch, since they certainly won't be his problem.

[ .. This epitaph. As if she would have forgotten it, even in this place, even after being here for two years straight already. It's been on her mind too much before she got here to suddenly forget it like that, really. And even though she did tell someone about it here, this is coming from a different journal entirely. Someone from her world..

Well, there's only one way to show that she knows about it too. ]

But without love, it still can't be seen.

[He was catching a break from working at the tree house when one entry catches his attention. A good lot of things ring bells in that riddle, it's only because he recognizes the handwriting as not being Bernkastel's that Keiichi isn't wary and is just curious when he replies.]

This is probably me being nitpicking, but if the second treasure bestowed by the witch is the resurrection of the souls of all the dead, why would she need to resurrect a lost love?

[A pause before more text appears.]

Unless that resurrection of a lost love is regarding the feeling of love that has been lost and not a person itself, but I have my doubts on the worth of a love forced by external magic.

( What an odd thing for her to see when she checks the entries, a work that spoke of a Golden Land while listing how chosen people would day in gruesome ways. James would love it. It definitely grabs her attention. In her nicest penmanship, she decides to reply to this with another lovely work. Not hers but at least it was a French one she could remember. )

Nous aurons des lits pleins d'odeurs légères,
Des divans profonds comme des tombeaux,
Et d'étranges fleurs sur des étagères,
Ecloses pour nous sous des cieux plus beaux.

Usant à l'envi leurs chaleurs dernières,
Nos deux coeurs seront deux vastes flambeaux,
Qui réfléchiront leurs doubles lumières
Dans nos deux esprits, ces miroirs jumeaux.

Un soir fait de rose et de bleu mystique,
Nous échangerons un éclair unique,
Comme un long sanglot, tout chargé d'adieux;

Et plus tard un Ange, entr'ouvrant les portes,
Viendra ranimer, fidèle et joyeux,
Les miroirs ternis et les flammes mortes.

( She hopes she isn't asked for an encore. Writing in that type of cursive was a pain to her hand. )

Is it a riddle?

[ ... This sounds like something his brother would say ] That's a pretty cryptic puzzle.
