Badeline[edit | edit source]

Badeline starts a conversation at the beginning of the Intervention checkpoint. After it, she starts chasing Madeline.

  • Badeline: Madeline, darling, slow down.
  • Madeline: Who said that?
  • Badeline: Oh, I'm simply a concerned observer.
  • Madeline: Are you... me?
  • Badeline: I'm Part of You.
  • Madeline: Why would Part of Me look so creepy?
  • Badeline: ...
    This is just what I look like, okay?
    Deal with it.
  • Madeline: Sorry, I didn't mean-
  • Badeline: Forget about it.
    I can't tell you what a relief it is to finally get out of your head.
    But look, I'm worried about us.
    We need a hobby, but this...
  • Madeline: I know it sounds crazy, but I need to climb this Mountain.
  • Badeline: You are many things, darling, but you are not a mountain climber.
  • Madeline: Who says I can't be?
  • Badeline: I know it's not your strong suit, but be reasonable for once.
    You have no idea what you're getting into.
    You can't handle this.
  • Madeline: That is exactly why I need to do this.
    Are you the weak Part of Me, or the lazy part?
  • Badeline: I'm the pragmatic part.
    And I'm trying to be diplomatic here.
    Let's go home together.

Phone call (Dream)[edit | edit source]

At the end of Intervention, the phone rings. Madeline picks it up, and the following conversation occurs.

  • Madeline: Hello?
  • Ex[1]: Madeline?
    ...are you calling from a payphone?
  • Madeline: Yeah.
    No, wait... you called me.
  • Ex: What are you talking about?
  • Madeline: It doesn't matter. I'm in trouble.
    I'm being chased by... someone.
    I don't really understand what's going on, but I know I'm in danger. I can feel it.
  • Ex: Madeline, you only call me when you're panicking in the middle of the night.
    You don't have to make up some ridiculous story just to get my attention.
  • Madeline: I'm not making it up!
    You always do this!
  • Ex: Shhh it's alright, calm down.
    I'm sorry sweetheart.
    Talk to me.
  • Madeline: I'm climbing Celeste Mountain. I found this old mirror, and it shattered, but part of me escaped, and...
    ...I'm dreaming, aren't I?
  • Ex: Madeline. Of course you're dreaming.
    I haven't spoken to you in months.
    Why would I start now?
  • Madeline: Ugh! Why am I even climbing this stupid Mountain?

[Badeline suddenly appears]

  • Badeline: I'm wondering the same thing.
    It's time to give up and go home.

Theo[edit | edit source]

There are several conversations possible with Theo, depending on whether Madeline met him in Forsaken City.

Never talked[edit | edit source]

  • Theo: Ho there, fellow explorer!
  • Madeline: Oh... hi.
  • Theo: Did you also trek up here to scope out these old ruins?
  • Madeline: Uhh... no, I'm headed for the summit.
  • Theo: Whoa, that's crazy!
    I'm Theo by the way, an adventurer from a far off land!
  • Madeline: ...
  • Theo: Not much of a talker, are you?
    Mysterious lone wolf type, I get it. I'll just imagine some dark backstory for you.

Not introduced (Theo doesn't know her name)[edit | edit source]

  • Madeline: Hey Theo, sorry about earlier. I'm Madeline.
    I've got a lot on my mind.
  • Theo: Well this is a good place for it.
    Something about these ruins feels so introspective.
    It's really making me take a look in the mirror, so to speak.
  • Madeline: Yeah... I get that.
    So what "far off land" do you hail from?
  • Theo: Well, my inquisitive compatriot, I doth hail from the mystical, enigmatic kingdom of...
  • Madeline: It sounds like a special place.

Met and introduced[edit | edit source]

  • Theo: Hey, Madeline! You made it! Climbing up here was tough, but totally worth it. Just look at these ruins! I took so many great pics, wanna see?
  • Madeline: Oh... sure.

[Madeline goes over to Theo, and he flicks through his pictures]

  • Madeline: Theo, these are great!
  • Theo: Maybe I'lll finally hit a thousand followers with these. Oh! We need to formally commemorate this occasion... Take a selfie with me!
  • Madeline: Uhh... I don't know if that's such a good idea right now...
  • Theo: Come on, it's easy. Like this!

[Theo snaps a selfie]

  • Madeline: ...

Interact again[edit | edit source]

  • Theo: Sorry about that. Don't worry, I won't post that one.
  • Madeline: ... No, it's alright. You can post it. I'm just not... photogenic.
  • Theo: Madeline, don't be so hard on yourself! No one looks good without a filter.

[Theo applies a filter to the photo]

  • Theo: Casual, yet refined.

Third interaction[edit | edit source]

  • Madeline: What made you want to try photography?
  • Theo: My grandpa was really into it. Apparently he was semi-famous in the photography world. I don't know if I'll ever be that good at it. But it's nice to feel close to him.

Fourth interaction[edit | edit source]

  • Theo: So you're determined to climb the entire Mountain?
  • Madeline: Yeah, I told myself I would. I'm done breaking promises to myself.
  • Theo: Life goals! I dig it. I doubt I'll make it to the top like you, but I'm not ready to turn back just yet.

Fifth interaction[edit | edit source]

  • Theo: Are you getting any data up here?
  • Madeline: I don't have a smartphone.
  • Theo: Madeline. I don't even know how to respond to that.
