恢复意识的她,发现自己苏醒于这个飞舞着玻璃蝴蝶的地方。
“多么令人愉快啊,”她想,“这些美妙的图案居然能在空中移动呢。牵引着它们的丝线在哪里?”

她蹲了下来,整了整裙子,环顾四周才发现这附近没有任何丝线。那些事物,也并不是蝴蝶——
玻璃碎片,不依靠任何外力便飞舞于空中。“太美妙了!”她自心底赞叹道。

这些玻璃反射出了另一个纯洁的世界。她从中看见海洋、城市、火焰、光芒;美好的景象目不暇接。
她抬起了自己的手,试图去抓住它们,开心地笑了出来。

她并不知道这些玻璃碎片有个名字:Arcaea。
实际上,名字对这些过于美好的事物来说并不重要。
她触碰、旋转、观察它们;她靠这样来娱乐自己。这已经足够了,难道不是吗?

现在留给她的,有六个问题:何人、何事、何处、何时、何故与何情。
在这些疑问的包围下,她没有问出任何一个,也不想得到任何答案。Arcaea的光芒已经使她心满意足。
这是她与这个新世界的邂逅。

英文剧情

Her first impression was that she'd awakened to a cloud of glass butterflies.
"How pleasant," she thought, "that these figures can move as well. Where are the strings?"

She sat onto her knees, fixed her dress, and found that there were no strings, and these were not
butterflies. Glass shards, flying on their own. "Delightful!" she felt, and so she said it.

The glass reflected another world than the one in white surrounding her. In it she could see reflections
of seas, cities, fires, lights; she rose her hand to scatter them, and laughed in joy.

She didn't know these pieces of glass had a name: Arcaea.
To tell the truth, they were so beautiful that it didn't matter the name.
She entertained herself by touching them, swirling them, watching them. That was enough, no?

There were six questions to ask: who, what, where, when, why, and how.
Of these questions, she asked none and desired no answers, content instead to bask in the glow of Arcaea.
This was her meeting with a new world.

但是,疑问还是不可避免地来临了。

少女立于玻璃碎片的螺旋中,沉思着:“但说实话,它们究竟是什么呢?”
传送门入口?窗户?抑或是……回忆?

最后的猜测,“回忆”,使她一怔。“它们是回忆,”她失声说道。
就在这一刻,那股疑惑消失殆尽。

因为某种原因,这个地方充满了回忆。谁的回忆?又是什么回忆?她心中不能肯定。
但她已经停止了疑问。

因为某种原因,那些玻璃跟随着她。虽然她无法抓住它们,但碎片仍然与她形影不离。
一时兴起的她,决定要开始收集它们。

一片一片收集。
没有任何理由。

英文剧情

But questions come inevitably.

The girl stands amidst the spiral of glass and wonders, "But really, what are these?"
Portals? Windows? Memories?

This last answer, "memories", strikes a chord with her. "They're memories," she says, faintly. And like that,
her questions stop.

For some reason, this is a place all full of memories. Whose memories, or of what, she can't tell for certain,
but her questioning has already ended.

For some reason the glass follows her. She can't hold any of it, but it comes to her nonetheless. On a whim,
she decides she will begin gathering it.

Piece by piece.
For no reason at all.

没有时钟的情况下,她根本不清楚多少时日已经过去了。
同时,新的思绪正逐渐浮现于她的脑海中。

玻璃碎片中,蕴含着美好的事物——她对此深信不疑。仔细一想,回忆会随着时间的流动不断改变,
但却与过去有着最亲密的联系。它可以苦涩,也可以甘甜,但她认为这两者都十分迷人。

如今,她可以瞧见自己所能见到的回忆——来自于别的场所与人们——
并且因它们的美而感到心旷神怡。Arcaea们闪烁着,散发着完美的光芒,在这破碎的世界里
显得格格不入。原本这些事物就容易博得人们的喜爱,而蕴藏其中的回忆着实使它们更惹人心爱了。

她哼唱着,双手飞扬,一边踩着破碎的小道。她带上了任何可能属于这整个世界的回忆,
跟在一条发光的溪流之后。这些属于一个既丑陋,又美丽的世界的回忆……

“多么好啊……”她叹息着,微笑着,陷入了宁静。这一切,看上去都太过于美好了。
在这里,不需要担心任何事物。
这美好而又简简单单的世界,只需要令人感到愉快就足够了。没错,无需多求。

英文剧情

Without a clock, she has no sense for how many days or hours she has walked, but there is a new certainty
in her head...

There is beauty in a memory, that's what she finds herself believing. Thinking about it, a memory is never
certain, can change with the times, and yet is the nearest thing to a concrete piece of the past. It can be
bitter or sweet, and she thinks in either case they're quite enchanting.

For now she will see what memories she can, of these other places and people, and appreciate them for
their beauty. In the first place, these Arcaea flicker and glow splendidly in this strange and ruined world.
It's easy to fancy it all, and that they show memories makes it easier.

Humming, hands aloft, and stepping down broken paths, she brings what seems to be memories fit for an
entire world with her, following behind in a shining stream. Memories of an ugly, pretty world...

"How nice..." She sighs, she smiles, and serenity becomes her, it seems, too well.
But there’s nothing to worry about.
A pleasant, simple world like this need only be pleasant. Nothing more.

这是道使人愉快的风景线。
长久以来,她行走于这荒芜却又美丽的世界,赞扬着她所找到的新鲜事物。

长久以来,她带领那些玻璃碎片一同旅行,以至于天空已经变为一面弯曲的镜子,
反射出了她所能见到的最遥远的光茫,整体望上去就像要触碰到天际。
这绝妙的穹顶闪着光,从未离开过她的头顶。
随着她只被华丽而又美好的事物环绕,此处成为了无尽的极乐世界。

她走下那段曾经通向一座庄园的螺旋阶梯。只可惜周围的墙皆已坍塌,而回忆取代了墙体。
所有的事物都比从前更加美好:她从那儿跃向前方,撞得回忆飞散开来;
她沉浸于闪闪发光的Arcaea——在被她找寻到后,它们便飘起并融入了她头顶那片人造天空。
她感到无比欢欣,高兴地笑了。


一朵花、一个吻、一段爱情、一次降生——她的眼前飞过了那一次又一次生命组成的玻璃海洋,
而它们也接连隐于了其余碎片的光辉之中。
她早已见过这些映像无数次,但仍丝毫不会感到疲倦。

她凝视着上方的墙体。当碎片都融入在一起后,它们变得更加生机勃勃。
她微笑着,享受着这满意的感觉——在她继续开始漫游前。
同时,就和以往一样,她没有留心这样做会给她带来何种后果……

英文剧情

A joyous landscape. For so long, she has walked through a ruined yet beautiful world, finding things and
admiring them.

For so long she's traveled shepherding glass that the sky has become a mirror bending light as far as she can
see, and shaped almost geodesically. The fantastic and glittering roof never leaves her, and with her
surrounded by only fancies and goodness, the world has become endless bliss.

She traipses down a spiral staircase that once led into a manor, but the walls have now all fallen and
memories replace them. It is all the better: she leaps out ahead and dashes the memories everywhere,
basking in sparkling Arcaea that, when she finds them, float up to join the others in her artificial sky. So
enraptured now, she laughs with cheer.


A flower, a kiss, a love, a birth: a life followed by a new life in a river of glass flies past her eyes and blends
into the rest. She has seen this reflected countless times, and it still pleases her.

She gazes at the wall above. As they’ve come together, they’ve grown more vibrant.
She smiles, satisfied, before she wanders on again. And, as ever, heedless of all consequence.

物极必反——人们坚信这是真理。她可能并不知晓这一点,抑或是对此毫不在乎。

少女如今穿行于一间看似老旧大礼堂的地方。
仿佛是一种超自然力量所造成,这里的辉煌景象被完美地劈成了两半,
昔日的庄严感也早已黯淡乏味,
在这声音的坟墓中同样飘流着回忆:舞蹈、演出、希望、胜利。

她的嘴抽搐着。是因为这些事物现已变得单调无趣,还是另有其因?
她抬起了手,而Arcaea们靠近了她,温柔地飘舞在她的手掌之上、指尖之中。
她茫然地注视着它们。她已经是第几次见到那退役乐队的送别欢呼了?
她已经是第几次见到两兄弟间的拥抱了?
她见到了太多次爱的形式——过于平凡,就像是这片被忘却的陈旧世界中的日常标准。


她让这些回忆远离她,下定决心不再去想这些事。

它们升了起来,飞入她仍在收集的那些回忆之中。
她如今正望向它们的终点。比起她刚开始收集的时候,那地方早已明亮不少。
它看上去每天都在变得更耀眼夺目……

究竟已经过去了多少天?她畏缩着,脸上扭出一丝怪相。她随即把自己的坏脸色一扫而空。

也许她只是需要更多——任何遗失的部分都将会被找到。
她冷静下来,开始继续前行。
她并不想自己被一个事实所干扰——无论她怎么做,那些跟随着她的Arcaea都不愿离去。

英文剧情

They say that this is true: anything in excess is a poison. She either didn’t know, or hadn’t cared.

The girl now walks past what seemed to have been an old concert hall, the impact of its grandness dulled
as it had been split perfectly in twain, as if some higher power had willed it so. Out of the tomb of sound
drift memories again: of dances, of performance, hopes, victories.

Her mouth twitches. Has it simply become boring, or is this something else? She lifts her hands and the
Arcaea come to her, gently weaving over her palms and through her fingers. Blankly she notes them. How
many times has she seen the last hurrah of a retiring band? How many times has she seen two brothers
embrace? Too many times she’s seen the formation of a love, so frequent it was apparently standard in old
and forgotten worlds.


She lets the memories go, and genuinely thinks nothing of it.

They rise. They fly to join with the memories she’s still been gathering, and she looks at their destination
now. It’s grown much brighter since she began her collecting. It seems to grow brighter every day…

How many days has it even been? She winces, and a grimace twists onto her face. She shakes it away.

Maybe she only needs more, then whatever is missing will be found. She calms herself and carries on, not
letting it bother her that no matter what, she cannot push the Arcaea following her away.

“天堂”其实也是地狱的一种。

事实上,虚度光阴和自我放纵是对热情的诅咒。
接连不断地汲取愉快的事物,将会无止境地麻痹感官,
使得“快乐”变得无比朦胧,暗淡,甚至完全失去原本的目的。
如今万物再无目的。她从未拥有过目的。

天空炫目到接近空白。

她也许正四处徘徊,也可能正站在原地;她对此无法确认,而这也无关紧要。
这片她创造的天空的确引起了她的注意,但她却无法辨别其中涵括的回忆。
这已是一片充满压迫感的不透明雾霾,散发着令人窒息的空虚感。她正一点一滴地丧失自我。

而在失去自我时,她始终对这渐渐渗入的瓦解之力感到麻木。虽然她早已不记得,
但是招待她步入这座让人感到愉快,却又让人窒息的牢笼之人,正是她自己。
现在,她甚至失去了为自己担忧的自由。


天空变得越来越明亮,少女的心智也不断流逝。在这仅剩的时间里,她仰望上方,好像等待着什么。
明亮——无比耀眼——散发无尽幸福的极彩色苍天:灿烂夺目的回忆淹没了她。

她的思绪终被清空。

并且,毫无意义地,光芒褪去了。

毫无意义地,时间流逝了。

之后,一名女孩仰望着空无一物的苍天。她的思想终止了——与她的故事一起。

英文剧情

“Heaven” is a kind of hell.

The truth is, idle peace and thoughtless pleasure are anathema to passion. Imbibing and imbibing of happy
things endlessly dulls the senses and makes “happiness” indistinct, blurred, and ultimately without
purpose. Now nothing has a purpose. She’d never had a purpose.

The sky is almost blinding.

She may be wandering, or she may be standing still; she isn’t sure and it doesn’t matter. The sky she’s made
has her attention, but the memories within it can’t be sorted out.
It has all become an opaque and overpowering haze compelling emptiness. She is losing her self.

And as she is losing her self, she remains numb to the encroaching dissolution. Though she did not
remember, she invited this pleasurable and suffocating cage, and she locked herself within it. Now she
lacks even the will to worry.


The sky grows brighter and she loses more of herself. With little time for her left, she stares upward as if
waiting. Bright, bright, bliss, beauty above: effulgent memory overtakes her.

Her mind whites out.

And, without meaning, light fades away.

Without meaning, time passes.

And a girl stares up into an empty sky, her mind ended, and thus her story along with it.

少女跪坐在地上,微抬着下巴。她那粗糙而又极具渗透力的创造物,不久便会将她吞噬进自身的光芒,
诱使她忘却一切。它跃动于她头顶上方,散发着光芒,温柔却又难以忍受。
她未多想,任凭那东西渐渐夺走她的全部自我。

而在那浩瀚虚无之中,她的双目捕捉到了什么事物。

仅仅是那特异之处便打破少女的麻木感,少女的目光也开始在那物体上摇摆:
一片有些特殊的玻璃,只是有抹鲜红,却着实引人注目。
不知是现实或只是大脑产生的幻觉,周遭原本晦暗的天空显得越来越清楚。她认为,天空变得容易看清了。
她认为——她才意识到自己已经几个世纪没有思考过。

这座如今正剧烈颤动的天堂已歪曲变形,一道巨大的裂痕更是从中划过,一切都围绕着一段崭新的回忆扭曲起来:
一片本不该存在的回忆。它从那一切中破空而出,也破坏了整片天空。


少女所创造的穹顶坠落下来,猛烈却又显得平稳,从中散落的星点光辉布满了整片空气。
这壮观华丽的景象原应使她目瞪口呆,但她仍惦记着片刻前刚刚诞生,正向她飘来的那一片玻璃——
被喜悦回忆中令人恐惧的混沌所缠绕的那一片玻璃。

那事物本身也是象征喜悦的回忆:那是早已被她遗忘的,关于她自己的回忆。

“什么时候——我真的——?”

声带太久未被使用,少女的话语声变得破碎不堪。

在她的掌心之间,那诞生自虚无的奇异碎片旋转起来,而从中她见到了自己刚刚苏醒过来的时候,
与成群的玻璃起舞,游荡于这片镜面世界,无比欢欣。
泪水有如泉涌。她心中明白,幸福在很久之前便抛弃了她。

英文剧情

The girl is on her knees, her chin brought up, and it is soon that her jagged and pervasive creation will
consume her in its light coaxing oblivion. Above her it pulses and glows, gentle but insufferable. She lets it
nearly take her, thoughtless.

And from that vast nothingness, something catches her eye.

Distinction alone breaks her from the lull of uniformity, and her gaze swings to it: a single, special piece
of glass, just a bit red, and absolutely noticeable. Perhaps in reality or through a trick of her mind, the
rest of the sky that it begins emerging from dulls in its intensity. She thinks, it’s becoming easier to see.
She thinks, and realizes she hasn’t thought at all in ages.

The heavens wobble and distort, and a crack seems to run through them, the whole thing twisting around the
creation of a new memory: a shard of memory that should not exist. It breaks from the whole, and breaks
the sky.


Both violently and calmly the roof of her making falls down, choking the air in scattering light. The spectacle
would be magnificent to her, but she remains stuck on the newest piece, which floats toward her amidst
the frightening chaos of joyous memories.

It, too, is a memory of joy: that of herself that she has forgotten.

“When was— Did I—?”

She speaks in a fractured voice, her vocal chords having been long neglected of use.

Now in her hands, the odd shard that came from zero revolves, and in it she sees the time when she awoke,
dancing alongside glass, traveling the mirror world, and happy. Tears fall from her eyes, and she remembers
that happiness left her long ago.

晶莹闪亮的玻璃碎片犹如不均匀的雨滴般落下,如同以往的任何时刻,倒映着那些死去的世界。
位于万物中心的少女全神贯注地盯着那片反射了何种新事物的碎片——仍旧存在的那片世界。

泪水从眼角滑落,她却尚未了解原由。在拾回心智的过程中,她饱受折磨——
她失去了曾经她所拥有的一切,而那些事物如今正纷纷跌落在她的身旁。
但同时,她也为失去了自己的热情而痛苦。那些倒映的回忆展现出一段更美好,却放纵愚昧的时间,
而她也正是在那时走入了她自己布下的陷阱。哪怕她知道那样将会带来何种结局——
这些得过且过,引领她步步迈向麻木的旅途经历——她还会只是为了一时的快乐而重蹈覆辙吗?

玻璃中的鲜红呼应着她衣服上的鲜红,而她紧紧抓住那片碎片,使得鲜红也浮现于她的手心。
随着那温暖的液体流过荧光的表面,过去与今时双双模糊。她终能再次感受情感——
可这股情感却比她从前所感受到的一切都更为强烈。她感受到了足以压垮她内心的悔恨。


在这些时间里,她近乎骄傲自满地四处游荡,心中漫无目的。
她搜集着Arcaea,享受着它们,却从未思考过哪怕最小的原因。
她害自己成为备受苦恼所折磨且总感世事乏味的快乐主义者,亲手将自己锁死在这人造的炫目监狱中。

然而面对“为什么”的疑问,这里从来就没有过答案。只是取悦自己?也并非如此。
她跌倒于双膝,怀抱着她胸前的回忆哽咽、啜泣、痛哭,心中明白自己已经犯了弥天大错。
浴于美妙的爱情与绚丽的生命过久的她,已经对这些事物感到反胃,而这残酷的事实让她悲痛不已。

少女沉浸在悲伤之中不断哭泣,尽可能地思考着方才发生的一切,与它们所象征的意味。

英文剧情

Twinkling glass pieces fall in an unevenly timed rain while reflecting dead worlds as they always do. The girl
at the center of it all focuses on a piece reflecting something new, however, and of this world still existing.

Tears fall from her eyes, but the reason is yet grasped by her. Her mind still recovering, she agonizes over
the loss of everything she had before, falling all around her. But, also, she agonizes over the loss of her zeal.
The memory reflected shows a better and ignorant time, as she walked into a trap she’d created for herself.
Even if she knew where it would lead — these shiftless travels inviting senselessness — would she have
done it all again, just to be happy?

The red in the glass is that of the red in her clothes, and she grasps the shard tightly to add the red of her
hand to it, blurring past and present, running warm over the shimmering surface. She feels, again, but she
feels so much more than before. She feels, overwhelmingly, regret.


These were times that, almost with pride, she had moved meaninglessly. She had gathered the Arcaea to
enjoy them,and not thought even a bit as to why. She had brought on herself a torturous and tedious
hedonistic existence,a manufactured and blinding prison. She had done it all for nothing, and nearly lost
herself.

And to a question of “Why?” there was never an answer. Just to be happy? That hadn’t been it either.
Collapsed on her knees, choking through cries with the memory over her breast, she knows the weight of
her errors. She had surrounded herself in love and life so much that it came to disgust her, and that truth
grieves her.

In grief the girl cries, thinking as much as she can, about everything that has happened, and what anything
meant.

死寂。

少些蕴含曾经的碎片落下来,间歇性打破了沉寂,但女孩的悲痛已经平复下来。
她早已不再直率地哭泣,仅仅是静坐在那些闪闪发光的玻璃之中,脸颊尚留有泪痕,双手的鲜血也已干涸。
恐惧、担忧与悔恨都已结束,她现在必须向前看了。

她因误入歧途而做出一切。事实上,她从来没有真正地被哪怕任何事物引导过。
凭借着“更多的愉快事物只会让一切变得更好”的念头,她用美好回忆填充了整片天空,
不曾意识将成堆的神秘碎片集中于一处会带来怎样的危险。她这才意识到这些东西会威胁她的全部,将她吞噬。

如果她想要奋力前行,她必须需要一个理由作为动力。


她需一五一十地回答那些曾几时被她遗忘的老问题。这个世界有着怎样的意义?为什么她会在此处?
为什么在温柔的回忆被她吸引时,那些她曾瞥见有苦难闪现的碎片却会拒绝她?她到底是谁?

少女的双眼再度有了光泽,依靠那颤抖的双腿直立起来。在她这样做的时候,围绕着她的Arcaea忽然移动起来。
她好奇地注视着它们,试着高举她的手。它们跟随着她的手飘舞而起,而她陷入沉思。
她察觉到这与从前不太一样,但她自身也有些地方变化了。

Arcaea不再主动接近她,而她也不再放任自己被束缚于牢笼中。
因为手上沾满了血,她用手背抹去自己的泪水,让这些将她引领至这条崭新路途的碎片们跟随于她的身后。
她会让那一切成为一段回忆,而她也将重新面对这陌生的世界。
无论是好是坏,她将找寻到一切的谜底。

她如此发誓,矢志不渝。

英文剧情

Silence.

A few small pieces of old times falling down intermittently break this, but the girl’s anguish has settled.
She no longer openly weeps, sitting among shimmering glass with dried tears on her cheeks and dried
blood in her hands. Fear, worry, and regret have ended, so she now has to look out ahead.

What she had done was misguided. It was, in fact, not guided at all. With the idea of “more happy scenes
would only be better”, she had filled the sky with good memories, not wondering if there might be any
danger in bringing so many of the mysterious shards together in one place. She realizes now that they had
threatened to swallow her.

If she wants to press on, she must have a reason.


She needs to answer those old questions that she had forgotten. What does this world mean, and why is
she in it? Why are gentle memories attracted to her, although she sometimes saw flashes of hardship in
pieces that refused her? Who was she?

Light comes back to her eyes and she stands on shaking legs. As she does so, the Arcaea surrounding her
shift. She looks on at them curiously, and lifts her hand. They lift too, and she ponders. She realizes this is
different, but that there’s also something different within herself.

The Arcaea will not come to her unbidden again, and she will not allow herself to be caged. She wipes
away her tears with the back of her bloodied hand, and lets the shard that has turned her onto this new
path go to follow behind her. She will let that be a memory, and face this strange world anew, and she will
find all that it is for, be it good or bad.

This she swears, and she is certain.

她醒来在一座损毁的塔楼中。飘浮着的玻璃碎片是她第一个注意到的事物。
它们引领她前往了室外——那纯白的世界。

纯白色、大片的纯白色,以及更多的玻璃碎片。
它们看上去正在被她吸引而来,而被激起了好奇心的她开始观察这些碎片。

就像透过火车车窗看外头稍纵即逝的景色一般,
她瞧见了阴雨的景象。下一次是艳阳。再下一次是死亡。她厌恶地远离了这些碎片。

虽然总是紧随着她,可这些碎片总能在少女试图捏碎它们时躲开。
少女心中的厌恶渐渐地化为为愤怒,而她迫使自己把注意力转移到那灰白色的天空。
然而,在她仰望天空之际,原先脸上的情绪荡然无存。
她的嘴微微张开来,却因过于惊讶而说不出半句话来。

玻璃在高空中搅动着、闪烁着、旋转着。这看着就像是场玻璃碎片的暴风雨。

她后悔把注意力转移到天空上。但碎片们已经发现了她,渐渐降落下来,要与她打个招呼。

英文剧情

She'd awakened in a ruined tower, first noticing pieces of glass floating in the air. They led her outside, and
into a world of white.

White, white, and more glass. It seemed attracted to her, so she examined the shards with piqued curiosity.

She could see glimpses of something else in them, like looking through the windows of a train car. In one
flash she saw rain, in another sunlight, and in another death. She grimaced, and pulled away.

Although it seemed attracted to her, at her attempts to reach out and shatter the glass the shards were
naturally repelled. Her grimace deepened into a glare, and she turned her attention to the pale sky.
However, as she gazed into it, her expression melted away. Her mouth opened, but she was too shaken to
speak.

Glass: churning, glinting, and turning far overhead. There seemed to be a storm of it.

She regretted giving it attention, as now it seemed to notice, and was coming down to greet her.

那是一股难以用语言形容的压迫感。巨量的碎片组成了飓风般的激流。它们并不会割伤她,也未反射她的面庞。
它们在她面前犹如强风般推动着她,却又突然转过弯,仿佛被更强的风暴所侵袭一般。
她稳稳地伫立在原地,注视着这一切。

注视着……回忆?……属于一个污秽世界的回忆。
“这是……!?”她伸出了手,“这些……!”

回忆。刻画着痛苦、背叛、嫉妒的回忆。

当她阻挡住眼前这片碎片时,其余的碎片也被影响了。它们就这么静止在空中,一动也不动。
她的脑袋左右晃动着。“这些只是……”

黑暗?它们只是纯粹的黑暗吗?但无论这些碎片在反射什么……她从中未见到一丝光芒。
哪怕是最小的火花,都会在一瞬间消失于她的视线。她紧咬嘴唇,毫不诙谐地微笑着。
“这算是什么低劣的玩笑?”她喃喃自语道,“这个世界只充满了痛苦……”

说出这番话后,就连她脸上的苦笑也消失了。

英文剧情

It's difficult to describe that sensation which overwhelms her now. A riptide of glass that doesn't shatter,
cut, or reflect her face, pushing past her in powerful amounts, turning up and swirling as if pulled by a great
wind. She stands fast, and watches.

Watches... ...Memories...? ...Of a filthy world.
"What is this...!?" She reaches out. "This...!"

A memory of pain, betrayal, envy.

When she stops it, she stops the rest. They stand still in the air around her, frozen. She whips her head this
way and that. "They're only..."

Dark? Are they only dark? Wherever it is these shards reflect... she sees little light there. Whatever small
sparks she sees fade away in an instant. She bites her lip, and then smiles a smile with no humor. "What
kind of joke is that?" she mutters, "A world filled only with misery..."

As she says this, even her bitter smile fades away.

没有时钟的情况下,她根本不清楚自己已经观察这些回忆多久了,
但她深信这段时间已经很长。

那么一刻,她试着去搜寻哪怕一丝愉快的回忆,只是确认它们是否存在。它们的确在那儿,
数量稀少,而那众多的痛苦回忆却从未放弃追捕她。
此时,她已经对这令人生厌的地方产生几分了解。

她现在正身处于玻璃组成的巨大旋涡的正中央,而它们则像一宇宙般展现在她的面前。
少女的心中推断出两种可能性:这些玻璃碎片们映射出的世界——或者说多个世界——中,只存在黑暗的事物;
或者被保留于此的,只有可怖事物的回忆……
不论如何,她都想尽快摆脱这一切。

可忽然之间,她的心中有什么事物发生了变化。如今,直视这些回忆使她感到舒心。
她收集了那样的回忆——看上去,十分愉快。

“如果我能摆脱这些垃圾,或使它们所象征的那些场所变得更加美好……”
那些充满混乱甚至光芒的场所。
这将使她感到高兴。

Without a clock, she has no way of knowing how long she's picked through memories, but she's sure it's
been quite a long time.

For a while, she'd searched the fragments for more happy memories, just to see if they were there. They
were, in small number, but the more miserable shards never ceased to hound her.
So, she's come to know places she now loathed.

She now stands at the middle of a vast spiral of glass that turns about her slowly and resembles cosmos.
She thinks there are two possibilities here: either the world or perhaps worlds these shards envision were
entirely terrible, or since only terrible memories are here...
In any case, she's decided to be rid of it all.

Something inside her has switched. Now when she looks at painful memories, she looks pleased. She
gathers such memories, it seems, gleefully.

"If I can be rid of this trash, or even better the places it represents..."
These places full of chaos and even light.
That will make her happy.

时间已经过了很久,而少女的信念坚定了许多。

从开始行动以来,她已经探索了大部分这玻璃与镜子的世界,沿途也收集了不计其数的碎片。
像是一条永无尽头的围巾一般,它们围在她的脖子四周,在她的身后延伸出一条极长的线路。
如今,她驻足于一座残旧的塔楼上头,面露微笑往外眺望着。
来自各处的恐怖回忆在她身后汹涌地扭曲着。

她现在正紧盯着那一直吸引着她注意力的地方,但她甚至从不想往那里踏出半步。
那是片拥有疯狂几何形状的巨大迷宫,缓缓延伸到遥远的天际。没错,那儿依然只有更多的玻璃。
没错,她可以站在这里感受到那迷宫中涌动着的污秽。


虽然尚不清楚自己该怎么做,但她决心摆脱这些跟随她的令人厌恶的碎片。
在结局来临前,她仍然会收集它们。她对把所有肮脏事物聚集于一处感到十分欣慰。
离清除所有碎片的日子会因此来得更加容易。
这个迷宫异常地险恶,而她因此来到这里,信心满满地想要收集其中所有的碎片。

围绕那迷宫的是闪闪发光的美好回忆,如同一片不断变化的海洋。
当她步入迷宫时,那片海洋退向两边,仅有少数碎片加入了她身后的行列。
然而,在边行走边分散那些美好回忆的碎片时,她犹豫了。自己被希望夹在中间,面前等待着她的却只有绝望。
她紧咬着自己的嘴唇……而她的心也动摇了。

英文剧情

It had been a while, and so she'd grown confident.

In the time since she began she'd explored much of this glass and mirror world, and she'd gathered
countless shards. Like an unending scarf they formed around her neck and trailed long behind her. Now,
she stood atop a fallen tower and looked out ahead with a smile. The terrible memories of other places
twisted behind her menacingly.

She was gazing at a place that had always caught her eye, but she'd refrained from ever going toward it. It
was some sort of distant labyrinth turning into the sky with insane geometry. Of course, it was more glass.
Of course, she could feel its filth pulsing all the way out here.


Although she still had no idea how to go about it, she intended to be rid of the terrible fragments that
followed her eventually. To that end she was gathering them. She at least took comfort in having the bad all
in one place. That would make clearing it away one day all the more easier. This labyrinth was particularly
bad, and she felt confident in gathering its fragments too.

The maze was surrounding by a glittering and ever-shifting sea of good memories. As she made her way
toward the maze, the sea parted, only a few shards coming to join the trail behind her. However, while
walking the path and scattering the good shards she suddenly hesitated. Now flanked by hope, with
despair before her, she chewed on her lip...and her heart wavered.

在过去的某一刻——绝对——这一切都曾更加美好。

少女不记得任何事。在苏醒于这个世界后,她也只见到了属于其他事物的回忆。
因此,她已经假设了各种答案,尽管她只思考了数秒。她敢保证这儿的玻璃碎片,
乃至这一整个世界,都没有任何确实的价值。污秽与恐惧、眼泪与伤痛、微笑与死亡——全都不值一提。

但在过去的某一刻,这一切绝对都曾更加美好。简单的规则,往往会是真理:
影子的诞生起源于光明。影子如今正于她背后匿伏,而光明正包围着她。

当踏入这欢乐而又纯净的浪潮时,她心中未有足以扭转她决心的杂念。
她将注意力完全置于眼前的邪恶,以至于她已经忘却了纯粹的善良。
事实上,这在她心中翻腾起了小小的波浪。她不堪重负。每一次朝那盘陀状迷宫迈出步子的时候,
她会瞥见余光中闪烁着的希望,随即停下脚步,质疑心中一切。然而,她有一个自己不愿面对且承认的,
隐藏于光明与混乱之中的答案。她不想去思考那个答案。她绝不允许自己想到它。


而在她真的做出觉悟之前,她已经站在了那不可思议之迷宫的入口处。

一时的冲动,促使她将手伸向那些美好的碎片。碎片之中是花田的回忆,而那些回忆在她的身边组成了花环。
她并不知晓原因,而脑中那些所谓的原因,实际上也帮不了她任何忙。

英文剧情

Once upon a time, surely, things had to have been better.

The girl remembered nothing. and since awaking in the world of glass she'd only ever known other
memories. Because of this, she'd drawn many conclusions and had few second thoughts. She'd been
assured of the idea that nothing in the glass and nothing in this world held any worth. Filth and awfulness,
tears and pain, a small smile, and death.

But once upon a time, things had to have been better. Simple rules are often true: shadows are begotten
from light. Shadow lurked at her back, and now she was surrounded by light.

When she'd stepped into these waves of joy and purity, she hadn't given it a second thought. She'd become
so absorbed in evil that she had forgotten simple good. To be honest it was more than her heart simply
wavering, now. She was overwhelmed. For every glint of hope that caught her eye on the way to the jagged
maze, she paused and questioned everything. There was an answer she did not want to acknowledge,
immersed in this scene of light and chaos. She didn't want to think about it. She wouldn’t allow herself to
think about it.


And, before she really could, she stood before the entrance to the impossible labyrinth.

On impulse, she reached out to the better glass and memories of flowering fields came to follow around
her in a ring. She didn't know why, nor if they would help.

她并不知晓自己曾拥有一个名字。如果她知道自己的名字,或许就不会选择走进这扭曲的黑色迷宫。
那可能会是个意义深重的名字,而这只会使得她的疑问愈发强烈。但她并不知晓答案。
所以少女紧咬牙关,重新坚定了自己的信念。先前的光芒不会使她动摇;先前的花环不会使她动摇。
她步入这昏暗的结构中,准备将这里撕裂。

每一堵墙都是由苦难砌成,而墙的每一面都布满了惨剧,每一个角落都由畏惧构成。
这是一座罪孽的城堡。简单来说,这儿的一切都显得无比荒谬,怪诞无稽。

少女的脸上再度绽放笑容。仅此而已。攀越于此、奔跑于此,
那纯粹的厌恶已经使她疯狂。她的想法并没有错。
玻璃只该被打碎。镜子只该被砸毁。


当她兴高采烈地撕碎大片的迷宫,将走道翻入半空时,脸上的笑容扭曲了起来。
她畏缩了;她的脑内绝对有什么不对劲的地方。在这片迷宫的中心,有着“什么事物”,
比任何她曾见到的回忆都邪恶。她可以感受到那样事物——那事物如今与她十分接近,正呼喊着她。
她的热情已经干涸,而她的脚步也逐渐放慢。下一刻,她看见了那片散发邪恶气息的玻璃碎片在空中旋转着,
其中含括的是一个世界走向灭亡的回忆。

一只手搭在脸上的她,朝着那镜像世界望去。她依然记得她身下那片充满欢乐与幸福的海洋,
与那如今环绕在她身边的花圈。她已经掀掉了迷宫的顶端一角,而墙壁也纷纷开始崩塌。
阴暗的玻璃在她身边缓缓坠落,而远方的美好回忆则闪耀着明亮的光芒。

她透过指缝观看着那世界末日之景。她咽了口口水,靠着那股不知名的勇气,将手从自己的脸上移开。
她伸出了手,把那世界尽头收入了自己所搜集的无数回忆之中。
这片存在颠覆了一切,她也进而感受到心中那份货真价实的,如浪潮般的狂喜。无论之后的回忆有多么可怕,
与此种记忆相比都算不上一缕羽毛。她确定自己已经变得足够强大,而她理所当然地想立刻把一切都摧毁。
就这样,伴随着那抹真诚的微笑与疲惫的笑声,她从天空中降落到了地面上。那座古老的塔楼随着她一同陨落而下。

英文剧情

She didn't know it, but she had a name. If she knew it, perhaps she wouldn't have entered the twisted
black maze. It may have been a meaningful name that may have made her doubts much stronger. But she
didn't know, she ground her teeth, and she reaffirmed her beliefs. The light from before would not shake her,
the light of the flower ring would not shake her.
She entered the dark structure and started tearing it apart.

Each wall pulled away was made of misery, each facet held horrors, and the corners were comprised of fear.
This was a castle of iniquity. Simply put, it was grotesque. It was powerfully grotesque.

And that girl, her grin returned. This was it. Climbing through it, running through it, this was the kind of
disgusting monolith that had compelled her into action in the first place. She hadn't been wrong. The glass
should only be shattered. The mirrors should only be destroyed.


And as she gleefully pulled away great swathes of the maze, hallways tumbling into the air, her smile
became warped. She winced; something was wrong with her head. At the heart of the maze, there was
*something* worse than any memory before. She could feel it, close now, calling to her. Her enthusiasm
had drained, and her progress had slowed, and she saw a wicked shard of glass turning in space,
containing the memory of the end of a world.

With a hand on her face, she looked into the mirrored world. She remembered the sea of pleasant realities
below her and the flowers now circling around her. She'd taken down part of the maze's roof and the walls
had subsequently fallen away. Dark glass rained slowly around her, and in the distance the better memories
shone brightly.

She looked into the end of the world between her fingers. She swallowed, and with newfound strength,
removed the hand from her face. She reached out, and dragged the end of the world into her collection of
memories. With this monolith toppled, she felt an honest and genuine surge of bliss. However terrible the
memories she faced from now on would be, it couldn’t possibly matter. She was certain now that she was
strong, and she would definitely destroy them all. And so, with a genuine smile and a tired laugh, she came
down from the sky, and the tower along with her.

可能她需要为自己的情况感到担忧,因为她的心忽然剧痛起来。

她后退了一步,手捂着嘴,眼中是一片迷茫。她如今正站在一座更加巨大而充满苦痛的,
如塔楼一般的迷宫中。但她只是一个扑腾跪倒下去。
而在触及地面之前,地板结构土崩瓦解,先她一步向下坠落起来。

映射后悔时日的那些回忆如同披风包裹着她,而属于塔楼的回忆由一阵缓慢的雨点化作了一场
倾盆大雨。她与这迷宫好似石块一般下落着。本应该因极快的下坠速度而感到恐惧的她,
却被混乱支配了思绪。

她落入了一片由来自其他世界的欢乐回忆所组成的海洋之中。
她与那崩坏的迷宫所带来的浪潮巨大无比。玻璃以既丑陋又美丽的形式相撞推挤。
她跪坐在这场风暴的中心。


她心中困惑的来源是她所承受的伤痛。她的一切都承受着伤痛。她的心脏仿佛随时会炸裂开来。
她所收集的回忆形成的披风化作一团古怪的球体,包覆着她。洁白的世界消失于她的视野,
只留下那些惨痛而邪恶的事物。她冒着汗,怀着猛烈起伏的情绪,颤抖着朝那些玻璃看去,
深沉地朝着Arcaea看去。这下,她意识到自己的心正在碎裂。

她的理性正在碎裂。

先前目睹的那世界尽头的回忆,缓缓地映入了她的视野。

英文剧情

Perhaps she should have worried, because her heart was suddenly in pain.

She drew back, covered her mouth, and her eyes went wide in confusion. She had been standing on the
floor of a gigantic and bitter maze that doubled as a tower, but she now began to fall to her knees. Before
she hit the ground, the structure began to break and fall first.

The memories of sorrowful days that she had gathered came around her like a cloak, the tower's memories
turned from a falling slow rain into a downpour. She and the maze fell like stones, and although she should
have been terrified to drop so far and so fast, all she could feel was confusion.

She splashed down into a sea of the fragmented happiness of other worlds. The waves she and the crashing
labyrinth caused were immense. Glass pushed against glass in a way that could be described as both ugly
and beautiful, and she knelt at the center of that storm.


She was confused because she was hurting. Everything hurt. Her heart was bursting. The cloak of memories
that she'd collected turned into a grotesque sphere and surrounded her. The world of white disappeared
from her vision, leaving only horrible things. Heaving, sweating, and trembling, she looked into the glass,
into the Arcaea, deeply. And as she came to realize that her heart was breaking,

That her sanity was breaking,

The memory of the end of the world that she'd seen earlier slowly drifted into view.

少女在踏入这纯白色的荒废世界中时,曾有着多样的情感。在大部分时间,她所感受到的是愤怒之情,
但她已经可以把那愤怒转变为一种离奇的希望。的确,她并没有任何有效的计划。
实际上,她向前走的动力只是因为她相信路程的尽头会有什么美好的事物。她曾经满怀希望。
她曾确信这些混沌会引领她前往光明。她曾确信那些她所经受的折磨、所面临的恐惧,都可以被打败。

是的,她曾经感情丰富。她如此强烈地坚信着自己的想法,
以至于在她发现一切——事实上——都没有任何目的之后……她感到饱受折磨。

最悲惨的命运,莫过于曾拥有希望,却眼睁睁地看着它们破灭。少女跪坐在一个诡异的死亡之圈内,
眼看着世界逐渐走向末路。这是她第一次感受到被称为悲伤的情感,并且这种情感很快就化作了绝望。
Arcaea的世界根本是个毫无意义的世界。这里只保存了各个世界走向灭亡的画面。
这里没有任何物质,只有反射出的影像。哪怕是她有时会在路上搜寻到的关于光明与愉快的回忆,
都仅仅是源于过去。就像是白昼过后终是黑夜,它们渐渐地导致了这一刻她眼前的世界末日。
她的眼中泪水盈眶。

自从苏醒之后,她感受到了太多事物。


她曾经感受到欢乐。欢乐离她而去。

她曾经感受到畏惧。畏惧离她而去。

愤怒离她而去。

希望离她而去。

就是悲伤与绝望,如今也离她而去。

她的眼神转为一片黑暗,而她已经与这些玻璃起了共鸣。
围绕于她四周的回忆之壳开始崩裂。她就身处其中,站在那炫目的光芒前方。她已经没有任何情感了。

英文剧情

The girl had felt many emotions since her waking into the white and ruined world. Mostly, she'd felt anger,
but she'd been able to turn that anger into a strange sort of hope. True, she didn't have much of a plan. In
fact, she was only walking forward because she believed at the end of her steps there would be something
good. She had hope. She was certain that this chaos was leading into light. She was certain that the
torments she was facing, that the horrors she was holding, could be completely shattered.

Yes, she was emotional. She felt so strongly that when faced with the idea that no, in fact, nothing had a
purpose...she began to suffer.

The cruelest fate is to have hope and see it crushed before your eyes. And so the girl sat on her knees in a
malformed circle of death, looking at a world coming to its end. This was the first time she had felt the
emotion of sadness, and it was quickly turning into despair. The world of Arcaea was a pointless world. It
was the manifestation of worlds gone. It had no substance, only the reflections of such. Even the glowing
and joyful memories she had sometimes encountered on her way were still only memories of the past. Like
night comes after day, they had to have led into the end she now saw spinning slowly in the air before her.
Her eyes welled with tears.

She had felt so much since waking up.


She'd felt joy. Joy left her.

She'd felt felt fear. Fear left her.

Anger left her.

Hope left her.

Even sadness and despair now left her.

Her eyes went dark and she could feel resonance with the glass. The shell of memories around her began to
crack and split open. She emerged from it and stood in the blinding light, and couldn't feel anything at all.

宛如受石油污染的海洋,那受诅咒的迷宫记忆,与少女吸引而来的回忆碎片一齐摔落下来,
与那些抚慰着她的碎片纠缠在了一起。它们大多都搅成了灰色的糊块,
有些则像长钉一样从地面猛地窜起。她像个雕像一样站在原地,缓慢地注视着每一片碎片,
仅仅是……在计算它们的数量。就算有些尖利的碎片险些在弹起时刺到她的眼睛,
她依然只是继续数了下去。

终于,她抬起了一根手指,与从她面前飞过的碎片打了个招呼。就在一念之间,
那些碎片聚集在一起,化作了一只脆弱的蝴蝶。她命令蝴蝶飞向高空,去反射那纯白的世界。
而当它归来并告诉了她自己的所见之物时——就在一念之间——她慢慢地撕裂了蝴蝶的翅膀,
并使蝴蝶化作了虚无。接着,她走向了那腐败的海洋,
让那些仍在她路径上伫立的,那些所有象征着遗失时刻的梁柱,全数爆发、碎裂。


……

时光逝去,她变了。

她不再激情地收集回忆。她近乎无意识地走在这世界之中。她知晓了更多关于这个世界与她自己的事——
只是不再抱有任何雄心壮志。

如今,她正在一个破旧坍塌的建筑旁行走着,旋转着她某天在废墟中找到的太阳伞。
静悄悄地,一只玻璃组成的生物倒映着痛苦,从天空中向她滑翔过来。
这看上去就像是个闪闪发光的粗糙乌鸦,而她认为这只不过是个工具罢了。
自塔楼倒塌的那天,她就和混乱满盈的Arcaea融为了一体,甚至已经能够随心所欲地操控它们。
它通过自身的方式与她细细低语,诉说着对少女而言遥不可及的苍白世界中的情况。
她对那物体怒目而视,使它爆裂开来,化为空气。她也继续行走起来。


她的乌鸦给她捎来的信息使她愈发厌恶。这个世界就是个空壳子——它们向来只会不断重复这个主旨。
她知道,她不会找到其他人。

但她想要那么做。她需要那么做。但这并不是为了让谁与她分担一下她残酷的命运。

她想把所有的挫败感都发泄到一个活物上。她想要找到一个人来供她摧残。

英文剧情

Like an ocean stained with oil, the memories of a cursed labyrinth and the memories she had brought with
her all fell and muddled into the soothing glass around her. Most of them churned into a gray mass, some
would suddenly jut up from the ground like spikes. She went still, and slowly looked over every shard,
just...counting them. Even when memories came shooting up sharply near her eyes, she continued to count.

Eventually she lifted a finger, beckoning some of the shards toward her. And, with a simple thought, the
fragments came together in the shape of a fragile butterfly. She commanded it into the sky, to reflect the
world of white, and when it came down again to tell her what it had seen, with a simple thought she slowly
tore off each of its wings, and let it fall into nothing. Then, she walked forward from the corrupted sea,
willing each pillar of lost time that entered her path to explode and shatter.


---

Time passed. She changed.

She no longer sought to collect memories. She walked through the world mostly absently. She discovered
things about it and about herself, but she had no ambitions.

Now she walked beside an old and crumbling building, twirling a parasol she had found in the ruins some
day. Silently, a creature formed of glass reflecting bitter days glided down toward her from the sky. It
resembled a glistening and jagged crow, and it was something she considered no more than a tool. After
that day at the now-fallen tower, she'd become more in-tune with the chaotic Arcaea and was able to call
upon things like this. In its own way, it whispered to her of places beyond her reach in the blinding white
world. Glaring at it, she had it burst and fall apart, and she moved on.


These crows of hers sickened her with news. The world was empty, that's all they said. That she knew.
She'd never find anyone else here.

She wanted to. She needed to. But, it was not because she hoped to have someone to share her fate with.

She needed to let this frustration out on something alive. She needed someone to hurt.

这座废墟与其他废墟都呈现出相同的景象,
但被光芒环抱的少女仍然在路过时注意到它,走进了其中。

她开始疑惑这些废墟究竟是何物,以及它们为何存在于此——
疑惑她一直以来游荡的这个世界是否也存在过往,
亦或者这些被严重破坏的风景线只因巧合存在。

她认为自己必须思考此事,而不是屈服于愚昧的极乐。
若她想要得到一个理由,这可能也会帮助她进一步了解这个世界。
或许这里……是另一个世界的对立面?

她曾于Arcaea中目睹过类似的景象,但这也使她质疑这个世界的某处
存不存在尚未成为废墟、依然耸立的高塔与建筑。
也许她只是还没找寻到它们……

这座废墟看起来曾经庞大而金碧辉煌。
这必然曾是一个美丽的地方,吸引着大量的人前来,她这样想。
如此光彩的过去若存在,那真的十分遗憾。

如今那儿只有她一个人——移动于排排长凳与破损的烛台之中。

如今那儿只有她一个人——接着她眨了下眼,猛然发现这里实际上还有一个人。

还有一个人,静静地站在她的左方,那一堵损毁的墙壁前。

曾经的她,会开心地微笑起来,毫无防备地亲近对方。
而现在,她困惑地盯着那被阴影笼罩的女孩,
但却未必没有怀着那让她无法抑制地颤抖的欣喜之情。

回忆的景象之外,于这个世界之中,就在她的眼前——有一名人类。
一直以来她都是独自一人,而现在这里出现了另一个人:
一个活生生的,有着呼吸的人。

另一位少女并没有注意到她,只是手握阳伞继续熟睡。
她那黑暗的身影显得与这闪闪发亮的世界格格不入。
这突兀的景象使她以为自己正处于梦境中,又或者瞧见了另一段苏醒的回忆。

她张开嘴说话,而另一名少女也恢复意识,睁开了双眼。

象征着被遗忘的悲伤与邪恶事物的她睁开了双眼,
眼前是这早已改变的,一身雪白衣裳的少女。

让身披光芒的少女感到舒心的那阵阵呼吸声很快就停止了;
那背负黑暗的少女眯起眼睛,嘴唇微张,似乎有着疑问。
但她最后只是倒吸了一口气,眉头上扬,将伞柄握得更紧了。

一股难以控制的扭曲狂喜由她心中一涌而出,但凌驾之上的是空前的渴望。
这份情感显现于她的面庞,而象征混沌的少女向那象征光明的少女
献出了一抹真诚、无法抑制的微笑。

英文剧情

The ruin is as common a sight as any other, but the girl in light
nonetheless pays it attention as she steps through.

She's been wondering what the ruins are and why they're there—
wondering if this world she wanders has a past,
or if its decimated landscape is only coincidental.

She feels she has to think about it, not to succumb to the bliss of ignorance.
If she wants a reason, then it might help to know the world, too.
Perhaps this is a reflection of another world?

She has seen things like it within the Arcaea, but that also makes her wonder if in this place
there might be standing towers and buildings that are not in ruin.
Maybe she’s only yet to see them...

This ruin seems like it was once large, grand.
It must have been a beautiful place where many people came, she thinks.
If it did have such a past, then it is a shame.

There is only her, now, moving through pews and broken candlesticks.

There is only her, and she blinks, seeing that there is in fact somebody else.

Somebody else stands still at her left, before a broken wall.

Once, she would have grinned happily, but carelessly at this person.
As she is now, she looks at the shadow-covered girl in confusion,
but certainly not without a fluttering, insuppressible feeling of elation.

Outside of a memory, here in the world and before her eyes, is a person.
All this time she's walked alone, and here is somebody else:
one other living, breathing person.

The other girl doesn't notice her. She is standing in place, holding her parasol, and sleeping.
Her dark figure cuts so strongly against the rest of the world, which shines so bright in the distance,
that she thinks this must be a dream or perhaps a waking memory.

She opens her mouth to speak, and the other girl opens her eyes to consciousness.

She who heralds sad and evil forgotten things opens her eyes
and witnesses the changed and white-clad girl before her.

That breathing the light-bearer found so relieving stops short,
and the dark girl squints, lips parted as if she means to question.
But she swallows instead and raises her brow, tightening her grip of the handle.

Her own twisted elation flows out from her heart, just as unstoppable, but so much more eager.
It climbs to her face, and the girl of chaos offers the girl of light an honest, irrepressible smile.

在这座既没有墙壁,又不存在屋顶,只能靠着仅剩骨架的长椅与白色的蜡烛辨别出场所的教堂之中,
身着黑衣的少女伫立于那幸存的老旧大门旁,凝视着片刻前才遇到的另一人。

一切都很单纯:长久以来,她的情绪都处于低谷,直到自己的面前终于出现了一个货真价实,有血有肉的人。
她并没有感到过于激动。她甚至心如止水。于她脸庞上浮现的那抹微笑仅仅是道敷衍却无法制止的谎言。
那段谎言对身着白衣的少女打招呼道,“很高兴见到你”。毫无意义。

少女用干涸的话语声问道:“你叫什么名字?”也许在曾经,她也如此意识到自己已经太久没有开口说过话。

“我的……名字?我……我不清楚,”散发光芒的少女如此回应,
“你呢?啊——我是指,记得你自己的……名字……”

她并没有给予回答。“这件事……”是她走神望向那华丽的墙壁时所说的一切。

纯白色的少女不禁露出了烦闷的表情。


这……成为了一场怪异的相会。尽管黑衣少女并不知晓,但白衣少女与她一样,心中未流淌着任何热情。
如同火苗忽然沐浴于寒风,她那不断黯淡的希望正在摇曳闪烁。现在,她变得不太舒服,心中焦虑而警戒。
一丝轻薄却无可撼动,且不合时令的气氛穿梭于二人之间。对她而言,
发生在这个世界的这场相遇本身便是个单纯的……“错误”。这些总是存在于四周,
如今已散布于破碎的地面之上的玻璃,也正体现出了这种违和之感。

正常情况下,这些碎片会朝她们无法抑制地一拥而上:“快乐”涌向白衣少女,而“悲痛”则是朝向黑衣少女。
这一刻,每一片碎片都仅仅是停滞于空中。或许有半百片镜面静悄悄地悬浮与少女们的身旁,
捕捉着她们四周大约一半的虚无景象。当白衣少女试着呼唤它们时,它们甚至都不会摇晃一下。
面前的一切使她感到心神不宁:幸福与恐惧并肩存在,一同闪烁,也皆无动作。
唯独那片她能够亲手握紧——那片曾经使她重获自由的碎片——自始至终对她锲而不舍。


她紧盯着阴霾中的少女。“如果我们两人都在这儿,”她开口道,身体前倾,
“那你觉得我们能不能结伴同行?我们……我们也许能互帮互助,说不定还……”

她止住了话语。另一位少女正凝视着那空旷的,如画布一般的天空,脸上空洞的神色显得毫无感情。
她看似并未聆听——但实际上,她已将每一个字刻入了脑海。

“说不定还……”被黑暗包裹的少女重复道。话语虚弱而又模糊……自从她于苦痛之中再生,
她的灵魂便感觉如同一道阴暗而冷酷的深渊。然而,当她听到这个提议时,
某种存在于她心中的事物仍然开始闪出微光——无比短暂,且极为微弱。
只是,对现在的她而言,就算是如此细小的事情,
也足够穿破自她再次苏醒过来便一直尝试扼杀她呼吸的失意面纱。


而少女残余的过去:那个首先苏醒于这片世界的对立,仍然违抗着这段象征“结局”的未来——
抵抗着彻底放弃的想法。她想要得到第二次机会。

但她并非诚心的答案还不足以激发面前那个女孩的信心。她们的相遇始终被小心翼翼的氛围所笼罩。
才恢复感官不久的光早已发现Arcaea的世界远超过了漂亮所能形容的范畴——当然,也远不够被形容为安全。

尽管如此,两位少女仍会开口交谈,期望局面会向某个更好的方向发展。

英文剧情

In the unwalled, unroofed church, known only by its skeleton chairs and white candles, the girl in black
stands near the remaining old gate, looking at the person she's just met.

It's actually quite simple: she’s been upset for so long, and now a true flesh-and-blood person is finally in
front of her. She isn't thrilled. She isn't even excited. The smile on her face is an effortless lie—but it's one
she can't help but tell. It says to white-clothed girl before her, "pleasure to meet you." It means nothing.

"What's your name?" she asks in a dry voice. Maybe, in the past, she'd have realized how long it had been
since she'd last spoken.

"My... name? I... I'm not sure," replies the radiant girl. "Do you? Oh—know your own... name, I mean... "

She doesn't answer the question. "That's something..." are her only words as she looks off toward an
ornate wall.

The girl in white gives a bothered expression.


This... was turning out to be a strange meeting. Though the one in black doesn't know it, the one white
is beginning to share the darker girl's lack of enthusiasm. Like a fire in a sudden chill wind, her hope
flickers and wanes. Now she grows uncomfortable, anxious, and wary. A slight but unshakable atmosphere
drifts between them, one that feels unmistakably off. To her, it seems as though their very meeting is
something the world finds to be simply... "wrong". The ever-present glass, now scattered unevenly
throughout and above the broken grounds, reflects that strange feeling.

Ordinarily, these shards would flock to them without their bidding: "happiness" to the girl in white,
"tragedies" to the girl in black. Right now, every piece of glass in the air stands still. Perhaps half a
hundred mirrors are quietly suspended around the girls, half-catching images of the empty place that
surrounds them. When the girl in white tries to call out to them, they will not even waver. It unsettles her:
happiness placed beside horror, equally glinting and equally motionless. The only piece that will follow her
is the one she can hold—the one that set her free.


She stares hard at the shadow girl. "If we're in this together," she begins, leaning forward, "then what do
you think about staying together? We... We could help each other, and maybe..."

She stops. The other girl is staring into the empty, canvas-like sky with a blank and uninformative
expression. She doesn't seem to be listening, but in truth she has followed every word.

"Maybe... " the dark girl echoes. It's faint... After her reincarnation into misery, her soul itself had felt like
a dull, grim abyss. However, when she heard this proposal, something inside her shimmered—very briefly
and very weakly. However, as she is now, even something as tiny as that was able to pierce the shroud of
frustration that had been endlessly choking her since she'd reawakened.


And the remnant of the girl she used to be, the Tairitsu who had first woken up in this world, rebelled
against the prospect of “the end”—against the idea of giving up. She wanted a second chance.

But her halfhearted answer isn’t enough to inspire confidence in the girl standing opposite her.
Their meeting remains careful, cautious. The Hikari who recently returned to her senses now knows
that the world of Arcaea is far more than pretty—and far less than safe.

And yet the two girls will speak, with the hope that it will lead to something better.

她们的交谈持续着。

“要是我们能够用名字相互称呼,事情的确会好很多呢,”对立用沙哑的声音说道。
她的双目再次开始失去象征生命的光辉。

另一位少女——光——留意到这一事后,不禁略感不适。
“是呢。我并不是很愿意去思考这种事:身在这个遍布回忆的世界的我们,脑海中却没有任何记忆,”
她承认道。

此时此刻,她们正坐在同一张长凳之上,尽管相距甚远。她们来到了这曾为第一排座椅的地方,
而前方的几个台阶则连接着一面宽大空旷的平台。白衣少女无精打采地注视着她的新朋友,眼中满是担忧。
而黑衣少女则是扫视着面前那宽敞的空间、那片天空,以及那些浮夸而又死气沉沉的建筑结构——
但这么做的她,其实似乎对那些事物没抱有任何兴趣。

正在仰望天空之际,她突发奇想地说起话。“这玻璃……你知道它们叫什么吗?”

“呃?喔……总之,虽然不太清楚原因,但我知道它们叫作‘Arcaea’。”


“和我一样,”对立如此回答,当今正朝光的方向看去,“所以,我们两个究竟哪里不同?”

光露出一抹遗憾的微笑。“我不知道哎,”她如此说道,“除了我们外表上的不同。”

“那我们试着弄清楚吧。你在这些玻璃中见到的都是什么样的回忆?”

“基本只有令人愉快的那些。”

对立叹了口气。“那我们就是截然相反的……”她苦涩地回话道,低头瞧向她的双脚,
“那可以假设一下我们是唯二漫游于此的人。如果真是这样,那我们的相反特征可真是非同寻常的要素。”

“你在Arcaea之中看不到愉快地回忆吗?”光疑问,身子稍微靠向与她交谈的这位伙伴,“嗯,对不起……”


“……总之,事情就是如此,”另一位少女说道。一时间,她们陷入沉默,直到对立首先打破沉静,
“但根据你之前说的话……我猜,你所见的那些快乐的回忆也没有带给你多愉快的经历吧。怎样?我猜得对吗?”

对这番猜测,光点了点头:“我并不是想说自己的经历从苏醒以来便一直那么糟糕,但……
你知道吗,曾经我收集了足够多的碎片,以至于它们足以覆盖整片天空。
当我那样做了之后时,那片崭新的天空几乎将我杀死……
我能感觉到那时天空散发的光芒缓慢地侵蚀了我的心智……说实话,那件事情的确是我自作自受。”

少女们坚信自己该向对方阐述真相。

在光讲述完自己沉浸于光芒之中的那场天真烂漫而危险重重的旅程后,
对立冷冷地叙述了她于黑暗的龙卷中那几番悲惨的挣扎。
她们从某些方面而言,的确截然不同。但两人之间某个必然存在的共同点,此刻已变得十分显著:
于一个无意义的世界中渴求着一丝意义。她们所处的世界也许十分美好,但其中的残酷性质却母庸置疑。


光已重振决心,但在不久前,她“本身的存在”就逐渐被这古怪而又冷清的地方所威胁。
而对立,却保持着伤痕累累的模样:残暴与愤怒充盈的欲望,如同海啸般连绵不断地涌出她的身体。
尽管在这场谈话的过程中,她已尽全力试图保持友善的模样,
源于胸腔的每一口疾喘却不是轻而易举就能掩饰住的。
眼前这个有血有肉的人,对她而言简直是完美的施虐对象。
那身着白衣的少女,一定早已注意到这位黑衣少女总是间隙性地用颤栗的双手将伞柄握得更紧。

这场谈话一点都不轻松——她们彼此都深知这一点。

但她们将全力进行抗争。


“我只是觉得我……我真的很希望遇见另一个人,”对立言为心声,“甚至该说……也许是在几天前,
这曾是我心中唯一的期盼。只是,自从我踏出了那漆黑的外壳,我便意识到,要自己坚守如此单纯的愿望……
真的太艰难了。我只是单纯不知道该怎么振作自己……当我内心未感到空虚的时候,
其中涌现的却只有肮脏而扭曲的血液。都是些恶心又残破不堪的事物……”她注视着光,
“就算到此刻,我心中仍在思考自己究竟多么想要伤害你。”

“没关系的……”另一位女孩说道,“如果我有过与你同样的经历,或许真的会感同身受。
只是呢,我不认为你对某一件事实的认知是正确的。我不认为你的心就像你说的那样破碎不堪。”

对立与她四目相对,仿佛在问这怎么可能。

“看吧——你退缩了哦,”光用心地分析着,“就算在现在也一样。这让我知道,就算经历过那么多的事情,
你仍然是个十分善良的人——始终如此。你很坚强……”从座椅上忽然站起的她,脸上挂起一抹微笑,
“你比我要坚强太多,“她道,不自觉地抬头瞥了一眼那明澈的天空。

“我被外界力量所拯救,”她继续说着,又一次与对立视线交汇,“而你却拯救了你自己。”


闪烁于黑暗少女心中的微光逐渐淡作虚弱的光芒,随之而来的是钻心的疼痛。这明明不是事实,她想到。
这一切经历并不是如此简单,她陷入沉思。她失败了,而过去的她早就与那迷宫一同土崩瓦解。
自那以后,她便失去了一切情感——就算情感再次于她心中燃起,所谓的情感却仅仅包含着蔑视。
甚至在与这女孩相遇之时,她唯一的渴望便是用小刀刺穿这女孩的身体。

那番话语并不正确,她根本没有拯救自己。只是……也许她的确不是单纯寻找着能供她摧残的对象。
也许她只是在等待一个能够给予她最后一线希望的奇迹发生。优柔寡断的光实在无法直接赋予她安慰,
但这女孩的存在本身与她那毫无敌意的心灵却始终暗示着一件事:
她,可能就是那一道才诞生不久的,最后的光芒。


让对立内心最为痛苦的,还数那种纯真的自我意识。

她的身躯瘫软下来。光立刻注意到这一细节,并赶紧凑过去,心中希望自己能帮上忙。
只是她的行为仍然是如此犹豫不决——这也注定着她完全无法接触到另一位少女。
她仅仅是站在对立跟前,半抬着双臂,而黑衣少女在片刻后便靠自己的力量重新站了起来。
光的双臂滑落至腰间,随着她的身体不自觉地后退一步。在二人的四周,
玻璃碎片们伴随着她们的动作而摇摆,而其中的某一片却突然散发起与其他碎片略微不同的光晕。
它的倒影中,存在着某样熟悉的事物,却不符合任何现实逻辑。

这显然是从未有人见过的景象:

一道转瞬即逝的邪念闪光,其中蕴含的却是这整片世界中最为诡秘的反常规记忆。

英文剧情

Their conversation continues.

"It would certainly be nice if we had names to share," says Tairitsu in a fraying voice. Her eyes are again
beginning to lose the shine of life.

The other girl, Hikari, notices that with some discomfort. "Yes, I can't say I like to think about it: not having
any memories in a world filled with them," she admits.

At the moment, they sit upon the same pew, though not close. They've gone to what was once the front row,
and a few steps in front of them lead up to a wide, flat floor. The girl in white is slouched, watching her new
acquaintance with worry painting her gaze. The girl in black is examining the empty place in front of them,
the sky, the dead and distant grandiose architecture—but she does so seemingly without concern or interest.

While watching, she begins to speak unprompted. "This glass. Do you know a name for it?"

"Huh? Oh... Well, for whatever reason, I know the name 'Arcaea'."


"Same as me," says Tairitsu, now looking Hikari's way. "So, how are we different?"

Hikari offers an apologetic smile. "I don't know," she says, "aside from our difference in looks."

"Let's find out, then. What kind of memories do you see in the glass?"

"Almost only pleasant ones."

Tairitsu sighs. "Then we're opposites..." she remarks bitterly, looking to her feet. "Let's say we're the only two
walking around this place. If that's true, our opposition could matter a great deal.”

"You don't see happy memories through the Arcaea?" asks Hikari, leaning slightly toward her conversation
partner. "I'm sorry..."


"...That's just how it is," says the other girl. For a short while they remain silent, until Tairitsu speaks again.
"But from what you've said... I suspect even your pleasant memories haven't resulted in a happy life for you
here. Well? Am I correct?"

To this, Hikari nods. "I don't mean to make it sound as though I've had it rough since waking up, but...
You see, I once gathered enough piece that they could cover the sky. When I did, that new sky almost
killed me... I felt like the light was slowly eroding my mind... I think it was mainly my own fault, to be honest."

They both feel it's best to be honest.

After Hikari tells of her naive and dangerous journey bathed in light, Tairitsu coldly recounts her tragic
struggles through maelstroms of dark. The two are certainly different in quite a few ways, but one definite
commonality becomes clear between them: a want of sense in a senseless world. The world around them
may be beautiful, but it has also been cruel.


Hikari has resolved herself, but it wasn't long ago that her very "self" had been threatened by this strange,
unfeeling place. For Tairitsu, it has left her scarred: persistent, panging compulsions toward violence and
wrath continue to roll up from within her like tides. Even throughout their discussions here, despite her
desire to be amicable, smothering each urge from her breast has been no easy feat. This living, breathing
person beside her is too enticing a target to release her frustrations on. The girl in white doesn't fail to
notice how the girl in black's hold on her umbrella periodically tightens into a trembling, aggravated grip.

It hasn't been easy—a fact that holds true for the both of them.

But they continue to fight.


"I think I just... I really wanted to meet somebody else," Tairitsu reveals. "Even... perhaps a few months ago,
that may have been all I really wanted. However... ever since I stepped out of that black shell, I've found it
difficult to hold on to a such an innocent desire. I just can't muster it. When my chest isn’t feeling empty,
I can't muster anything in it that isn't vile and wicked impulse. Disgusting, broken thing..." She looks at
Hikari. "Even now, I keep thinking about how much I want to hurt you."

"That's fine..." says the other girl. "Maybe I'd feel that same way if I’d gone through everything that you did.
But I don't think you’re right about one thing. I don’t think your heart is as broken as you feel."

Tairitsu meets her eyes, as if asking how that could be.

"Look—you're holding back," explains Hikari, "even now. That tells me that even after everything, you're a
very good person—still. You’re strong." She smiles and stands from her seat. "You're a lot stronger than me,"
she says, casting a momentary glance into the brilliant sky.

"I was rescued," she continues, meeting Tairitsu's eyes once more. "You rescued yourself."


The shimmer inside the dark girl's chest becomes a faint glow, and an ache pulses through her.
That's not true, she thinks. It isn't that simple, she thinks. She failed, and the old her died that day when
the labyrinth collapsed. She'd felt nothing after that, and when feeling came back to her, it was nothing but
contempt. When she’d met this girl, even, it made her want to do nothing more than take a blade and run
her through.

No, she hasn’t rescued herself. However... perhaps she hasn't simply been seeking someone out to harm.
Perhaps the truth is that she’s been awaiting something impossible to give her one last ray of hope.
Hikari is too meek and unsure to directly comfort her, but her presence and lack of aggression signal this:
she may be that last, fledgling ray.


What pains Tairitsu's heart is that very innocent realization.

Her posture weakens. Hikari notices and moves to see if she can do something. But she is still unsure,
and so she is ultimately unable to reach out for the other girl. She stands before Tairitsu with her arms
half-raised, and in a few moments the girl in black stands by herself. Hikari drops her hands, and takes
a step back. Around them, the glass sways with their movement, and one in particular begins to shine a
bit differently from the others. In its reflection is something familiar, yet impossible.

It is a vision that, surely, nobody could have seen:

the briefest wicked flicker of a most strange and anomalous memory.

中文剧情

她们两人各站一方。对立单手捂住胸口,手指因连续疾喘所带来的煎熬而加倍施力。
她重新振作了起来,而这一切都得归功于那位白衣女孩。光赠予了她珍贵的最后一次安慰。
这一切并未注定走向结局。在这纯白又刺眼的地狱之中,还存在最后一条能够使她逃离一切梦魇的道路。

尽管虚弱无力,但在深吁出一口气之际,一抹真诚的微笑仍是显现于她的脸庞。
“让我们一起做件有意义的事吧,”她敞开心扉道,
“让我们搞清楚这愚蠢而又荒谬的世界究竟是怎么一回事。”

“这世界也——也没有多愚蠢啦,”光温和地反驳道,略微用力地微笑着。
她并不全心全意地喜欢这另一位少女,但至少能确认一件事:
虽然表面上看不出来,但这女生绝对不是一个邪恶的人——更是似乎……截然相反。
而单单这一个事实,便足以成为与她结伴而行的最佳理由。
总而言之,一个“好”人……这种话绝对不会被她用来形容自己。


但就在她这样想着的时候,对立的心情变化了。“是什么让你说出那种话的?”
不断喘着粗气的她如此问道,尽管问题本身听上去更像是在责备。
她的双瞳空洞无光,冰冷的视线直射对面。“你应该比我更了解这种事:
这个地方可以在女生因鲁莽使自己被愉悦的事物包围时彻底摧毁这女生的心智。
“她站得笔直,边平息着自己的呼吸边宁定着视线,

她那坚定的信念使得另一位少女失落了片刻,但光却不再是一个对任何事物都漠不关心的女孩。
她拾起星点的自信,挺直身子,阐述了她的观点。

“我们依然活着,“她说,”而如果这世界让我们活下去,那它就绝不是最为糟糕的地方。

“哈啊……?”另一位少女眼含凌厉,“你错了……如果一个世界允许生命的存在,
却只是用无尽的污秽与梦魇去荼毒生灵,那这个世界根本就是不公平的。”

“好……好吧。也许的确不是那样,可是……”

“可是?!”对立质问道。


“但那样的目光也太短浅了!你究竟想要做什么事?”

”毁灭一切。这世界,这些玻璃……我要毁灭所有东西。我会找出正确的方法。
这想法十分合理,不是吗?”她依照事实诉说着,“我想你一定会与这想法产生共鸣。
除了被当成一座过于宽敞的监狱,这世界对你而言还能是什么地方?”

“毁灭这世界……?就算……就算你办得到,这也只会让一切走向终点啊!
我们直到目前为止,能确定真实存在的世界也仅此而已!
如果我们以某种方式毁灭了它,那我们难道不是会把自己也摧毁吗?
难道你会……难道你宁可死在这里?为什么……这种想法简直太过分了!”

“不,不会有关系的,”对立冷漠地说道。

并没有预料到这种回答的光立刻沉默了下来。对立的话语太过于骇人,而包含的更是只有悲伤……

在光沉默之际,对立继续起了她的质问:“你有任何别的想法?或者其他计划?”


“不……我没有。我只是想要和……和你一起找一个办法,
”另一位少女这样承认道,话语声中流淌着清晰的消沉。

在方才一番振作后,对立其实就已经认识到了这一点。这使她暂停了质问。
要责骂这位新认识的同伴实在是太过容易了。她知道自己的行为举止蛮横无理。
理所当然,不久前才搜寻到一线崭新希望的她,更是能十分容易地察觉自己在这之前是多么冷血。
只是,在面对另一个人心中的希望时,她却选择去摧毁那希望。说实话,她难道还不够狭隘?
在过去,她脑海中类似的信念使她不仅永远无法体会到满足与平静,更是离解决眼前的问题愈来愈远。
不,她的任性只会带领她走向一条污秽而黯淡的荆棘之路。
心中怀揣这样的思想,她终于扑灭了心中那注定爆燃的烈焰。
若她想要牵起这女孩的手……她就必须同时承担这女孩用双手竭力保护着的希望之光。

“对……对不起,”她完全抛开了自己过激的感情,低下头真挚地道了歉,
“我……其实也有一样的想法。我也想与你一起找出一些新办法。”

早前因对立的话语而被削弱的自信,如今又被光重拾回心中。她对自己的新朋友说:
“没关系的。毕竟,你的确经历过一段我不了解的时光呢。”


只不过,燃烧于对立心中的正义之火刚刚才恰到好处。

最终,那道烈火也只持续了一瞬间,
就像是闪烁的火光一般——但却足以惹恼沉眠于那些碎片之中的某一片玻璃。

它就这样苏醒过来——并且自主性地朝着二人的所在处飘去,不引起她们的一丝注意。

“不要失去希望,”缠绕光芒的少女说道,“无论多么糟糕的事情,都有好转的那一刻。”

不断闪烁着渐变的色彩,那片碎片径直闯入两人中间。它同时引起了她们的注意——
但它却只向着那位身着一袭黑衣的少女呈现碎片所蕴藏的记忆。

英文剧情

They stand apart, Tairitsu holding a hand over her chest, fingers clenched and struggling as she takes heavy
breaths. She is reinvigorated, in no small part thanks to the girl in white. Hikari has given her one precious,
final reassurance. It does not have to be the end. One last path out of this white and blinding hell still exists.

An open, albeit weak, smile cuts along her face as she exhales. "Let's do something," she says. "Let's figure
out this stupid, absurd world."

"I-It's not that stupid," says Hikari in mild protest, smiling herself with just as little strength. She isn't entirely
positive about the other girl, but she can tell at least one thing: despite appearances, she isn’t evil.
Quite the opposite, it seems. If anything, that alone is reason enough to join hands with this new potential
ally. A "good" person... is not exactly how she'd readily describe herself, after all.


However, while she thinks this, Tairitsu’s mood turns. "What makes you say that?" asks the panting girl,
though her delivery of the question sounds much more like an accusation. Her eyes are almost hollow as
they bore coldly into her opposite. "You might understand it even better than me. This is the kind of place
that would break a girl for the audacity of surrounding herself in pleasures and joys." She stands up
straight, calms her breath, and steadies her gaze, bringing the hand over her chest to the handle of her
parasol. "That's unconscionable. You don't agree?"

Her strength of conviction puts the other girl down for a moment, but Hikari is no longer one who is incapable
of any caring. Gathering a modicum of confidence, she stands up straight herself, and delivers her explanation.

"We're alive," she says, "and if a world can permit that, then it can't be the worst thing."

"Hah...?" The other girl's glare intensifies. "No... If a world can permit life, only to plague that life with ills
and grief, then that world is not just."

"W-Well, maybe not, but—"

"But?" demands Tairitsu.


"But that's shortsighted! What is it that you want to do, exactly?"

"Destroy everything. The world, the glass, all of it. I'll find a way. It's only fair, right?" she explains as a
matter of fact. "I would think you'd resonate with the idea. What has this world been for you other than
an expansive prison?"

"Destroy it...? Even... Even if you could, it would only end everything! This is the only world we know of
that exists for certain, isn't it? If we somehow destroyed it, could we not simply destroy ourselves as well?
Would you... You’d rather die than live here? Why, that's... that's ridiculous!"

"No, that's fine," says Tairitsu simply.

Hikari, not expecting that answer, falls silent. Tairitsu's words were too frightening, and far too sad.

In her silence, Tairitsu continues her interrogation. "Do you have some other idea? Some other plan?"


"No... I don't. I wanted to find—to find a plan with you," admits the other girl, and dismay is clear in her tone.

And Tairitsu, in her recent recovery, recognizes this. It makes her pause. It had been too easy to lash out
at this new acquaintance. She knew she wasn't being reasonable. Indeed, having just found herself with
burgeoning hope again, she could clearly see how cold she’d been until their meeting. And yet, when faced
with another’s hope, she'd attacked. Truly, was she that petty? In the past, this conviction of hers has never
brought her satisfaction or peace, much less resolution. No, her willfulness has only ever led her down a
dark, thorny path stained with gloom. With this in mind, she extinguishes the fire rising in her heart that
had been so sure of its need to burn. If she wants to take this girl's hand... she cannot reject the ideas it holds.

"I... I'm sorry," she apologizes, her passion now fully relinquished. She lowers her head for a moment.
"I... feel the same. I want to work to find something new as well."

Hikari regains a bit of her self-assurance, which had been brought low before Tairitsu. She tells her new
friend, "It's alright. You've had a time here I could probably never understand."


But that righteous fire in Tairitsu's heart had been just enough.

Ultimately, it had only burned for a short moment, like a flash—
but it was enough to rile a dormant shard in the flock of glass around them.

It awakens and, on its own, begins to drift down to where they are, still unseen.

"Don't lose hope," says the girl in light. "Things can always get better."

A shard, shimmering with faded color, comes directly between them.
It catches both their attention—but it will only show its memory to the one clad in black.

结局。

被阴影纠缠的少女,目光穿过那扇破碎的窗户,投射到另一段时光之中。
微笑,回到了她的脸上。

她可真是个无可救药的傻子。
不,不是那白衣少女。
是她自己。

那片玻璃中的影像并不是回忆。

当然,这并不现实。
她所看见的是未来——那个她理应期待万分的未来,
那个白痴,愚蠢的梦想家。

那些玻璃毫无偏差地映照出了她自己的身体被一根参差的玻璃长柱一穿而过的影像。
那道创伤仿佛要在炙热,苍白的烈焰中将她的衣服与整个身躯撕裂。

空虚荒芜的Arcaea大地,从她的身前和身后延伸到无边无际的地平线。
带着缠绕双肩的那两股刺眼的炙热火焰,抬起手轻抚着长柱的,
是那位身披白衣,使她倍感熟悉的少女——尽管在这个角度看不到她的表情。

她,是此时此刻正站在自己面前的少女。
那名才与她相遇不久的女孩。
这绝不是回忆:这景象预言着未来将会发生的一切。

面对此景,对立退回了自己的立场,
并对峙起那段她原先计划彻底无视的真相。

她已无所谓自己有没有心怀信念。
她已不会在这世界中找到任何对她有利的事物。

最后一丝希望也终被墨染,淹没在绝望之中,最终被彻底遗忘。

还有什么事会发生?
她还期望着什么?
愚蠢。令人厌烦。盲目的愚蠢。

令人厌烦的努力。
令人厌烦的回忆。
令人厌烦的存在。

令人厌烦,糟糕得不可理喻——使她作呕。对这一切感到作呕,对她自己感到作呕,
对这永无止境的嘲讽游戏中所存在的一切事物感到作呕。

奇迹?别开玩笑了……

她早已对自己说过。这个世界是地狱。
她是从种种显示这世界已经死透了的事物得知的:
在这世界之中,即便天使也终会堕落,而后苏醒为恶魔。

在光芒中的少女就是这样。
在这被诅咒的终末展开中,就算是她心中原先微不足道的小洞也被残暴地刨开,并迅速扩大——
荒废,并在刹那间彻底腐朽,只留下一道冰冷的无底深渊。

正当蕴藏其中的黑暗席卷并吞噬少女,尝试扼杀她的思绪之时,
她清晰地看见了光。

她看见光的视线投向那片碎片——捕捉到她眼中存在的恐慌与那明澈的认知。

这女孩已经知道了。
而现在,她已无法直视来自对面的视线。
一言不发,哪怕一切尽在眼底。

你此刻感到紧张吗?是否心情不安?毫不掩饰。
不可原谅。

那股愤怒扭曲成厌恶与憎恨,如同滚滚黑云般显现于她的双眼之中。

邪恶的背叛者;邪恶,邪恶的地方。
她紧紧抓着她的阳伞,
越过碎片注视着伫立于原地的光。

仿佛冻结在原地——当然,因为她病态的意图已经被识破了。
这可真是令人发笑。

对立的双眼微闭。
她抹除了那女孩尝试在她心中种下的一切情感之芽。

只是,这是面单向的镜子——其中蕴藏的厌恶与冷淡也是相同。
光对这片不同寻常的碎片之中所蕴含的内容完全无从知晓。

当对立的脸上失去越来越多的血色,
丝毫未意识到情势的走向——光仅能在困惑中观察着一切。

一股突如其来的危机感扩散至身体的每一个角落。尽管她并不理解原由,她却能感受到危机就在眼前。
事实上,匍匐于大地的暗影如今已翻腾而起,毁灭着它所接触的一切光芒。

黑暗向着她逼近,而她的呼吸变得愈发急促。她不禁朝着后方退了一步。
她几乎无法相信眼前正在发生的事情。她根本不想去相信。

即使她已于那片耀眼的天空所带来的痛苦折磨中幸存下来,
某种可怕的事物再次毫无理由地显现于她的面前。

尽管,她仍旧存活了下来。
而她终究意识到,生存并不是件能够妥协的事情。

心中怀着这样的想法,光犯下了一个天大的错误。

她伸手去拿了那片玻璃——
那片在她彻底迷失于低谷时,给予她慰藉与方向的玻璃。

就在她将它提至胸前时,
对立头颈后方的头发也飞扬起来。

恐惧猛烈地冲击着她的全身。伴随着那永远不愿再次遭遇不幸的决意,
那一刹那,对立在没有任何预警的情况下靠近了光,
准备彻底夺走她的性命。

To be continued...

英文剧情

The girl adorned in shadows peers through the broken window into another time.
Her smile returns.

What a fool she was.
Not the girl in white, no.
Her.

The vision in the glass is no memory.

It cannot be, of course.
What she's seeing is a future: a future that she should have expected,
the fool, the idiot dreamer.

The glass shows an unmistakable image of herself, run through with a jagged pillar of glass,
the wound seeming to sear her clothing and body apart in a blistering, pale, and consuming flame.

The blank, barren lands of Arcaea stretch out far behind her, and before her,
coaxing the pillar with a lifted hand and a blinding, fiery glow around her shoulders,
is a girl clad in white, a very familiar one, though her expression is hidden from this vantage.

It is the girl standing before her now.
The one she has only just met.
This is no memory: it's a vision of what will come to be.

Faced with this, Tairitsu retreats into herself,
and confronts the one truth she was determined to ignore.

Her conviction didn't matter.
She will never find anything good for her in this world.

That last hope is dyed black now, drowned in despair, forgotten.

What else would happen?
What was her hope for?
Idiocy. Tiresome, blind idiocy.

Tiresome effort.
Tiresome memories.
Tiresome existence.

Tiresome, awful, sick of it. Sick of this, sick of herself,
sick of everything in this never-ending, mocking play.

Miracles? No...

She'd said it herself. This world is hell.
And she knows this, from the fractured ideas of worlds dead and gone:
even angels can one day fall and awaken to demonic form.

The girl in light is just like that.
In a turn final and damning, what was once a mere pit inside her chest is clawed and spread.
It wastes, decays all through in an instant, leaving instead a cold and endless chasm.

As the darkness within it creeps out to coat her insides and choke her thoughts,
she sees Hikari very clearly.

Sees her gaze darting to the shard—sees the panic, the clear knowledge in her eyes.

The girl knows.
And now she can't face her opposite's stare,
won't say a word though she sees clearly.

You're unnerved? Unsettled? Unabashed.
Unforgivable.

That anger twists into hate and loathing, spilling over and arriving in her eyes.

Wicked betrayer; wicked, wicked place.
She tightens her grasp on her parasol,
looking past the shard to Hikari, who is standing still.

Frozen in place, surely, because her ill intentions have been exposed.
It's worth laughing about.

Tairitsu's eyes narrow, and she excises the remains of those burgeoning emotions
the girl had begun to cultivate within her.

With finality she is emptied,
and with that, she knows what she must do.

But this mirror is still one-way, and thus her anger as well.
Hikari is unable to see within this peculiar shard at all.

Unaware, she can only watch in confusion
as Tairitsu's countenance drains more and more of color.

A sense of danger wells up in her, and though she can't understand why, she can feel it there.
In fact, shadows now seem to be crawling up from the earth, light perishing at their touch.

Darkness nears her, and her breathing shortens. She takes a step back.
She almost can't believe it. She certainly doesn't want to.

Even after surviving the harrowing ordeal, that blinding light sky,
something terrible faces her again without reason.

But still, she had survived it.
And now she knows for certain that survival may not allow compromise.

With this thought in heart and mind, Hikari makes a damning mistake.

She reaches for the one piece of glass,
the one that gave her comfort and direction in the midst of her lowest moment.

When she raises it to her chest,
the hairs on the back of Tairitsu's neck rise up as well.

Fear pulsing through her, along with a conviction to never meet with tragedy again,
Tairitsu closes the distance to Hikari in an instant, without warning,
ready to once and for all firmly grab hold of her life.

To be continued...

又一次的苏醒,同时也是她的第一次。

任何人于这回忆的世界中苏醒后,脑中记忆都是一片空白。她也不例外。

不过,当光线映入她的瞳孔时,她感受到了不同寻常的事物。
她的心跳首当其冲地加快;激情四射,渐渐涌出的失落感让她近乎咆哮起来。
她的手紧抓着覆盖腹部的衣服,心想自己的耳朵可能要被震聋。
她的双眼不自觉地眯起来,而她这才意识到自己仅拥有一只眼睛。她的面庞感受到了这一切。

“什……?”

她咳嗽几声,然后撑起身子。隔着手套,她触摸到一种可以称得上软绵绵的物质,正牢牢固定于她右眼的所在处。
她才发现自己带着手套。朝自己的身体看去后,她不禁疑惑起自己为何会穿着这些衣服。
接着,她不禁疑惑起自己为何知道衣服是什么东西。


她方才背靠着一面墙睡觉。经过观察,她发现自己的四周是另外三堵墙,残破得不堪入目。
它们将她围在这没有出路的空间中。抬起头后,少女见这里并没有屋顶,
却紧接着对自己为什么会觉得上头理应有个屋顶一事而感到纳闷。事实上,她察觉到自己身在何处……隐约地。
她沿着自己曾靠在上头睡觉的墙走着,直到发现一处她能够翻越过去的地方。
在清理那些砖块时,她发现它们洁白无瑕。此时,她抬头仰望,发现不仅这面墙是白色的——
整个世界都是一片纯白。那是片一望无际的古老,溃败的人类社会遗址,也可说成是多个文明的仿制品。
这太诡异了……更诡异的是:她竟然会觉得这一切很诡异。这又是为什么?

在她机缘巧合地发现那些反光的玻璃之前,她竟早已为自己目前所见的事物,以及她的身份,
给予了数十种推测。即使是她如今孤身一人——而且连自己的名字都不知道——的事实,
也为她阐述了可能性极高的推断。


并且,随着时间流逝,她发现的许多线索都指向她脑海中某一项特定的推测。

她天生具有强烈的自信心与好奇心。这纯白的世界只有着无尽的问题,却从未出现过答案。
几天过去了,那些废墟中没有答案显现。几周过去了,这些玻璃内也没有答案显现。
可以肯定的是,这世界充斥着玻璃、它们不断地投射着其它形形色色的,
更具生机的场所,仿佛在借此奚落着她。源于某种真实事物的回声与痕迹,或者说是这世界本身,
遍布着人类发明的仿制品。在这两个月里(虽然真正的时间可能更长),
她觉得自己已经看了足够多的画面以坚信某个想法。


这一座破旧的阶梯离她苏醒的地点已有一段距离。
伫立于阶梯顶端的少女,望向了天空中那起伏不平的截断部分:
由数以百计的Arcaea所组建而成,那是一扇不通向任何地方的残破窗户。
这一刻,少女开始对自己的猜测深信不疑。她打赌自己的推理便是真相。

但光凭这点还不够——根本不可能足够。这可不是光靠猜测就能确定下来的事情。

所以她在心中郑重誓言道:这整片领域就是一个谜团,不会讲述任何事情,
只会给出零星线索——所以她将解决这谜题,
找出对应的理由来。作为这领域中唯一的活物,这仿佛成为了她第一个职责。

而就在她完全接纳Arcaea的时候……

Arcaea也完全接纳了她……

……作为一间宽广且看似无边无际的档案室——不仅等待着被阅读,
更等待着某个人来亲身经历它们。

英文剧情

Another awakening, and her first.

Each one awakens in the world of memories with nothing in her head. She is no exception.

However, as light filters through her cornea the sensations that grip her are unusual. Her heart stirs first,
passionate, and she almost snarls at the building frustration. She grips the clothes over her stomach, and
thinks her ears might be deafened. Her eye squints involuntarily, and she realizes with that that she only has
a single eye rather than two. She feels around her face.

“Wha...?”

She coughs, and pushes herself up. What she felt through her glove was something almost soft, surrounding
something very solid in the place of her right eye. She realizes she’s wearing gloves. Looking over her body,
she wonders why she’s wearing these clothes. She wonders next why she knows what clothes are at all.


She had been sleeping against a wall, and upon an inspection of her surroundings sees that there are three
others to make a four-cornered place around her, and every one of them is in extreme disrepair. Looking up
she sees that there’s no roof, and questions why it is she’d expected to find one in the first place. In fact, she
recognizes where she is... vaguely. She trudges along the wall she’d slept against until she finds one she can
step over. As she clears the bricks, she notices that they are entirely white. Looking up, she sees that it isn’t
only this wall, but the entire world that’s white. It is an infinite landscape of an old, defeated, human society,
or rather a pastiche of several societies. It’s bizarre... Moreover: it is bizarre she finds it bizarre. Why?

Before she even stumbles upon any reflective glass, she has already bet on tens of theories behind what
she’s seeing, and who she is. Even that she is alone, and that she doesn’t know her name, tells her much
about the potential truth.

And, over time, she finds more reason for one theory in particular.


She was born with conviction and curiosity. The world of white presents questions but no answers. Days
pass, and there are no answers within the ruins. Weeks pass, and there are no answers within the glass.
Indeed, the world is full of glass, taunting always with views of other, more vivid and varied places. Echoes,
imprints of something real, exactly the world itself, so full of what must be copies of human invention.
After two months, though it could be more, she feels she has seen enough to believe something, and
with confidence.

While atop a broken stairway someplace far away now from where she’d awakened some time ago, she
gazes at an undulating and segmented portion of the sky: a seemingly broken window to nothing, crafted
from over a hundred shards of Arcaea. She becomes sure of herself in this moment. She can bet her
judgment is the truth.

But it’s not enough, and never enough. It can’t be settled with speculation.


So she vows: this realm is a mystery, telling nothing and offering little, so she will solve it and find its reason.
As the only being of this realm, it seems, this will be her first duty.

And as she fully accepts the Arcaea...
So too do the Arcaea fully accept her...

...as a vast and seemingly endless archive, not only to be read, but to be lived through.

夜色将至。屋外,太阳所溢出的琥珀色暮光马不停蹄地想要从天际溜走,奈何被草坪中的那几台装置捕捉并卷入,
转变为近似月光的柔和射线。

这场宴会带有种独特的气氛。虽然庄园外一个人都没有,但是对上流人士来说,
保持形象似乎比任何事都来得重要。她了解这一切——从一开始便是。她坐在较暗一点的地方,
而被捕捉的阳光则重现于她如今无法触及的天花板与阶梯。少女静静地思考着潜藏于那些渊博知识之中的涵义。

“拉薇妮雅。”

她的视线从葡萄酒杯上移走。而她的未婚夫(穿着整齐,甚至能用古板来形容,
但是姿态相当轻松自如)正站在她的面前。

“这玻璃杯里装的应该不是葡萄酒,对吧?”

她用那只正常的眼睛注视着杯中的液体,答道:“这是苹果酒……多纳文。”


“不错。”他笑着回应,一边环顾房间的四周。
少女茫然地瞧着他的表情,而他假笑着。“妈妈与大家都说喝少许葡萄酒对身体有好处……”
他道,再次朝她瞥去,“我告诉你,那些都是胡说八道。你有见过喝醉酒的人吗?”

她想了想,畏缩道:“没有。”

“那就好,没见过是好事。”他轻笑一声,转过身去,“我接下来要去跟摩根聊聊,
不过随时欢迎你加入我们。”

少女点了点头,多纳文就走去壁炉旁的那群老朋友们身边。


一如往常,形象的维护是必不可少的。在引线被卷起存入地上的灯笼前,
那凹槽中的火焰只把自身的光辉投出几英寸远。房间的其余场所一片黑暗,却使人感到安心。
挂在上方的几个灯笼刚好提供了足够让人们进行阅读、辨识各自面孔,
以及分配经过了精挑细选的食物和一瓶瓶饮料所需要的光线。在那半面为玻璃的墙壁外部,
如今室外景色模糊不清,隐约能够辨识出野花、石头与溪流:笼罩于深蓝夜幕之下,仿佛一条绸缎。
宴会上有二十位来宾,一半在这个房间里,其他人可能在大厅或是某处的书房——或许是图书馆也说不定。
她所知道的只有这么多。

她细细品尝了她的苹果酒。从未尝试苹果酒的她,发现这酒也只是真的有味道而已。
少女回忆起某种更好的滋味和感觉,但如今她的思绪却被迫集中于舌头上的灼烧感。
总体感受:相当地不舒服。她再次肯定了自己的看法。

她将玻璃杯搁在一旁那张矮桌的奇异桌布上。她坐了下来,凝听、观察着四周,
几分心不在焉地抚摸着于她的另一只眼中绽放的花瓣。


她听见多纳文说,“但仔细想想,他们现在已经做了那么多了。
我第一次听到这主意的时候,我甚至觉得这完全行不通。”

“嗯,查尔斯对这一点十分确信。”另一位来宾说道——不是摩根,而是娜塔莉亚。

“真让人意外,”多纳文认同道,手指游离于发梢。

“一个完整的世界,全部由人类的双手打造……”他说,“我们人类可真了不起。”

英文剧情

It’s early evening. Outside, the twilight amber flowing out from the sun tries to slip by without pause, but
the devices within the surrounding meadows catch and spool it, changing it to rays more similar to what
might be cast from the moon.

The party has a certain atmosphere. Though there are no eyes without the manor, the fact is that
maintaining an image is paramount to those of upper echelons. She knows this, all of this, innately. Sitting
in a darker place, with sunlight captured and held at ceilings and staircases presently beyond her reach, she
considers the implications of this knowledge in calm and in silence.

“Lavinia.”

She looks up from her wine glass. The fiancé (dressed very well, almost stuffily, but in casual posture) is
standing before her.

“There isn’t actually wine in that glass, is there?”

She looks at it through her one proper eye. She answers: “It’s cider... Donovan.”


“Good,” he says with a smile, looking out toward the rest of the room. She looks at his expression blankly.
He smirks. ”Mum and the rest say a little wine is good...” he says, glancing at her again. “It’s a load of
nonsense, I tell you. Have you ever seen a drunk man?”

She thinks, wincing. “I haven’t.”

“Well then, let it remain that way.” He chuckles, then turns away. “I’ll go speak with Morgan. Join us
whenever you like.”

She nods, and Donovan moves to their mutual childhood friend near the fireplace.


As always, images need to be maintained. The fire throws its light only a few feet out from the pit before the
threads of it are wound away, stored into lanterns on the floor. The rest of the room is dark, but comforting.
It’s a setting to relax within. A few lanterns above give just enough illumination for reading, seeing each
other’s faces, and the spread of carefully selected portions of food along with bottles of drink. Just outside
the room, through half-glass walls, an almost untame scene of wildflowers, stones, and streams is dimly
visible: wrapped in a midnight blue, almost like satin. There are twenty guests at the party, half in this room,
the rest in the halls or somewhere in other studies—perhaps the library. This is as much as she knows.

She drinks her cider, tastes it. She notes that it has a taste at all, not having had much experience with cider
herself. She recalls something about a better taste and sensation, but in the moment now she is compelled
to focus on the burn along her tongue. Overall: quite unpleasant. That is her determination.

She puts the glass down on the fanciful doily of the short table beside her. She sits, listens, and watches,
touching the flower petals blooming from her other eye rather absently.


She hears Donovan say, “But to think they’ve done so much already. When I first heard of the idea, I was
sure it wasn’t possible.”

“Well, Charles is quite sure it is,” says another of the guests—not Morgan, but Nathalia.

“Astounding,” Donovan grants, running his fingers through the top of his hair.

“A whole entire world, made by human hands,” he says. “Mankind is quite something.”

片刻前,她的目光飘忽于灯笼摇曳的光线,现在她则找寻起自己的未婚夫来。
她再度伸手拿起玻璃杯,啜了一小口;这样足够让她想起为什么当初要把它搁在一旁了。

创造世界的事情,根本只是他们脑中不可靠的幻想而已。他们没有更深入地讨论。他们其实并不了解它。
那群人究竟说过哪些他们真正感兴趣的话题——说实话,她没法准确地回想起来。真让人心烦意乱。
有时候,她甚至觉得他们根本就没在说话。少女开始感到厌烦。她起身离开客厅,走去那些更豪华,
更有夜晚魅力的大厅;穿过几间虽有亲切感,但对她而言依然陌生的房间。她将这儿探索了一遍,
发现了一条未点灯的漆黑路径,以及几扇把手似乎上了锁,却看不见锁孔的门。能够打开的那些门后方,
是几位男女在房里,聊天的声音小到听不清楚。
他们虽然注意到她的存在,但只是瞥了一眼,就回到方才谈话或休息的状态。


她想去外边走走。

先进的科技遍布于这座庄园,但庄园整体却与古老的“阶级制度”理念相融。没错,那些调光器十分奇特,
而这整片人造的荒野也极为古怪。不果这其中让她最感兴趣的科技,是安置在花园中的那些光能转换装置。
她虽然知晓它们,却是初次亲眼所见。

用单个词语来形容:她很“好奇”。

人们总重复着单调乏味的社交活动,使今日与过去的千百天几乎毫无差别,而她对涉猎此类日子毫无兴趣。
生命与创造皆无比迷人,从中选出一者难如登天。


但就在她缓缓靠近通往前车道的大门时……

就在她的手指触摸到眼前那巨大的木把手时……

她明白过来,外头没有任何事物——至少对她而言,从一开始便是如此。
这整个世界上,没有任何其他能让她容身的地方。
她的归属并不是于草坪中赞赏那堆机械科技,而是那间狭窄的准夫妻起居室。

“外部”仅仅是个想法。一个毫无营养,转瞬即逝的概念。

这可不是个会让她感到开心的领会。

她的手从门把手上滑落。随即她转过身,站在一盏吊灯底下。
那吊灯上面装饰的每一片镜片都映照着这一刻的世界别处的景象——
总是不断地转换,展现着那些她无法前去的场所。
柔和的,宛如星空般的彩灯环绕在固定装置的周围,让那物体与这整片场地都显得过于虚幻。
她的眼神、她的嘴唇,未阐述任何思绪。步伐声中燃起些许不满,她步履艰难地回到了宅邸之中。

英文剧情

Her eye had wandered to the flickering of a lantern, and now it seeks the expectant husband. She reaches
for her glass and takes a sip; it’s enough to make her remember why she had put it down in the first place.

The matter of a created world is only really a fickle fancy of theirs. They do not discuss it much. They do not
much understand it. What little they might have to say of true interest, she can’t, in fact, properly remember.
Irritating. At times, it even feels to her like they aren’t speaking at all.

The girl grows impatient. She stands and passes out of the sitting room into more lavish, more evening-
themed halls, passing rooms with which she’s familiar, but only vaguely. She explores, finding stretches of
unlit, pitch-black paths, and doors that seem to be locked though their knobs bear no holes for unlocking.
What doors are open show rooms of a few men and women each, chatting too quietly to discern. If they
ever notice her presence, they only look her way a moment before returning to conversation or rest.


She wants to go outside.

The manor has some technological sophistication to it, but is married to its ideals of old “class”. Yes, the
dimming canisters are curious, and the manufactured wilds are peculiar, but what interests her the most
are the light-transforming machines in the gardens. She knows of them, but has yet to see them firsthand.

In a word, she is “curious”.

The humdrum of a social gathering so often repeated that this day feels like a thousand identical others is
not something she wishes to dabble in long. Lives and creations are too fascinating to ever take either for
granted.


But as she approaches the doors to the front driveway...

As her fingers slip upon the wood of the grand handles before her...

She knows, innately, that there is nothing past there, nothing for her. In the entire world, there is nowhere
else she could be. Her place is not in the meadows admiring mechanisms, it is in the sitting room with the
husband-to-be.

“Outside” is only an idea. A fruitless, ephemeral concept.

That is not a favorable realization.

Dropping her hand she turns and stands below the chandelier, each of its shards showing an image of
somewhere else in the world, at this moment. Shifting, always, and speaking of places she cannot go.
Fading, almost celestial illumination hangs around the fixture, giving this place and that object a too-unreal
quality. Her eye, her lips, say nothing. She trudges back into the mansion, with a small fire of discontent
born within her.

一阵狂风将墙后原野中的花瓣吹落一地。
纯白与蔚蓝的闪烁引起了人们的注意,宴会上的年轻人对这突然的变化纷纷表示称赞。
就像魔法一样。太美妙了。

她回到了休息室,也目睹了这场人造自然的旋风,
一场华丽的闹剧。

她尚且记得这些花朵初次被吹落的景象,想到:
她已经受够"回忆"起那些事物了。

在过去的许多个小时中,她对这儿的边界进行了一番研究。

窗户上了锁,阳台的落地窗门被封了起来,通风口也被用螺丝固定着。
她对现状抱持的唯一疑惑是:
"这些去路被堵住——是因为那群人堵住了去路,还是因为我被困在这里了?"

她发现,暗喻与情感总会动摇少女们的心灵。
现实并不容易辨别清楚。

而当她在摸遍、戳遍、翻遍、绕遍这地方后,
她开始去找熟悉的来宾与朋友们一起闲话家常。

"最近的天气……"
"国王他……"
"你知道吗,上周……"

枯燥乏味,而且毫无营养。
虽然有提问从她的嘴中蹦出来,却只会被怀疑一番,甚至完全被他们忽视。
就像那些疑问从未被问出口——好像她根本就没有说过话一样。

她最想知道的情报——机械工程、科技与发展——
显然在这些来宾身上是套不出来的。
就在她变得越来越沮丧的时候,她选择在一旁聆听对话,终于听见:

"它现在可不止是个泥球了。我听说我们很快就能够完成地球化呢。"

她对那个话题发问……但仍旧没有得到任何回应。
不过有这条信息就差不多足够了,所以她再次进入走廊。

如今她伫立在那里,静静地观望着那场风暴,将自己与其联想。

她轻步走过她的未婚夫身旁。他见到她,对她露出一丝微笑。
他打招呼道,"拉薇妮雅,你回来啦。"而她凝视着他的西装衣领。
他对此未察觉分毫。

演员们总是依照同一种方式演出。
何事脱颖而出,何事不同寻常——全都从未被人们所在意。
她的行为越来越大胆,但他们依旧遵照自己的习惯行动。

因为得保持形象,对吧?
她决定直截了当地问出那长久以来压迫在她心头的问题。

"人造的世界……它难道不是玻璃制造的吗?"

"……呃?你在说什……?当然不是啊,拉薇妮雅。这可不是个玩笑。"

她睁大了眼睛,瞳孔收缩。

在所有的疑问中,就只有这个得到了回应。

多纳文的视线越过她的肩头,仿佛望着墙后更遥远的地方。他说:
"不管怎样,这不是很令人喜爱吗?几乎就像你一样惹人怜爱……"

但她没有作出任何回应。
他的回答间接印证了少女的假设,因此她下定了决心。

就在空中以螺旋状飞舞的花瓣要平静下来的时候,
她走向摆满食物的长桌,驻足于面包。

多纳文滔滔不绝地说着。
"我听说,他们塑造的世界最终会像是错综蔓延的山谷,没有尽头。
现在,它就只是一片荒地。这是个概念,你明白吗?"

她静静聆听,将手搭在一个握柄上。

"但是对于那些拥有足够能力包揽下来一块地的人来说,这绝对是件十分开心的事。
你想象一下那块新土地的可能性,拉薇妮雅。"

她叹了一口气。又是次不会有任何结果的尝试。
少女的手握住那精巧而又光滑的木头。

她灵巧地转过身,朝正等待着她的未婚夫迈出步子,
将自己的手甩向他的头颈。

面包刀的锯齿止于他的皮肤。

不带任何情感——甚至未含敌意的火花——她一言不发地刺穿了这男孩的喉咙,
贴近凝视着将要迸发而出的事物。

英文剧情

A windstorm scatters petals around terrain behind the walls.
Glints of white and sapphire catch the eye, and the youths of the party speak of the change favorably.
Like magic. Wonderful.

She comes back into the lounge and witnesses the swirl of artificial nature,
the splendor of a farce.

She remembers the first time those flowers were scattered and thinks:
she’s rather had enough of "remembering".

During the past several hours, she’s tested the boundaries.

The windows were locked, the patio doors were barred, and the ventilation ducts were bolted.
The question she had to all this was:
"Are these shut because people shut them, or because I’m trapped in here?"

Metaphor and emotion often swayed the hearts of young girls, she found.
It was difficult to determine the reality.

When she’d had enough of poking, prodding, turning things over, and wandering,
she began to prattle on with other guests she knew to be acquaintances or friends.

"The weather..."
"The King..."
"You know, the week before..."

Tedious, and uninformative too.
Certain lines of questions were met with incredulity or with nothing at all,
as if the questions hadn’t been asked—as if she hadn’t spoken.

What she mainly wanted to know about—engineering, technology, progress—
seemed to especially draw out nothing from the other guests.
With her frustration growing, she took to listening in instead, and eventually heard:

"It’s little more than a globe of dirt now. We’ll terraform it soon, I’m told."

And asking about that... led nowhere as well.
That was quite enough to know, however, and so she entered the lounge again.

She stands in it now, watching the storm, and relating to it.

The girl steps past the fiancé, who smiles at her presence.
He greets her with, "Lavinia, you’re back," and she rests her gaze on his lapel.
He takes no particular notice of this.

The players always seem to act in such a way.
What stands out, what’s unusual, is given no mind.
Bolder and bolder she’s gotten, but they remain always steadfast to their routines.

To maintain the image, correct?
She decides to ask, outright, one question she burns to have answered.

"The man-made world... it isn’t made of glass?"

"...Hm? What on...? Of course not, Lavinia. It’s not a bauble."

Her eye goes wide. Her pupil constricts.

Of all the things, that had been it.

Donovan looks over her shoulder and through the walls, saying,
"At any rate, isn’t it lovely? Almost as lovely as you..."

But she doesn’t reply.
Recognizing his answer as confirmation, she settles on a decision.

As the spiral of flowers beyond flow almost serenely through the air,
she moves to the table of foodstuffs, and stops before the breads.

Donovan continues.
"I’m told the world they’ve made will have shows like this across sprawling, endless valleys.
Right now, it’s only barren. A concept, you know?"

She stops her hand over a handle, listening.

"But it’ll surely be a delight in time, for those who can afford a spot on it.
And think of the potential, Lavinia."

She exhales. It’s been another fruitless trip.
Her hand closes on fine, smoothed wood.

She turns swiftly and steps to the awaiting husband,
swinging her hand out toward his neck.

The bread knife’s teeth stop in his skin.

Without feeling—without even a spark of animosity—she wordlessly cuts across the boy’s throat,
and watches closely to see what comes out.

这东西不是血。

这东西什么都不是。

这位绅士的喉咙以一种很糟糕的方式被割了开来……但是这段记忆之中缺少了“可怕”的概念。
与其说这是一幕破碎,残忍的画面,他的脖子现在看来更像是布满皱褶又遭撕裂的纸张。
里头充斥的不是“阴影”,是“负空间”:他的身体里存在着整一片虚空。
伤口的边隙上闪烁着星星点点的微弱白光,亮晶晶的碎片沿着她用来刺穿他的刀刃滑落下来,浮于半空……
单纯地悬挂于空气之中。

多纳文无法理解这一刻发生的事。大多数的来宾也因她的举动而感到畏惧万分。
人们倒在地上,几位女士昏了过去,多纳文则伸手去摸自己的脖子。
几个男人扑向她,将她的前臂拉至后方,并用力勒住她的脖子。
少女紧握着手中的面包刀,呆滞的表情映入丈夫迷茫的眼神。

虽然她并未对宾客的压制行动作出任何挣扎,但她注意到在多纳文的身后,有名女孩陷入了歇斯底里的恐慌。
她喉咙深处爆发出的声音愈加扭曲,响度如同波浪般起伏,于空气中炸裂开来。此刻,这段回忆已然破碎。


事情原本不该这样发展。就算再怎么经历时变,一段记忆也不该成为这种模样。
一名妻子,在如此安逸的时刻,无缘无故地突然出手伤害了自己的丈夫……

她曾希望引起所有人的注意力。而现在看来,她的愿望已经达成了。
虽然房间里有少数的人面对这股骚动仍心如止水——甚至有些人就像搞丢了人脸,没法做出表情一样——
但是这段记忆的确是第一次经历了如此巨大的变化。至少在这一点上,她成功了。

这片世界开始崩毁,裂痕显现于她所能看见的任何一个角落。
其后出现的现实事物,看上去像要因这段碎裂的记忆而出现褶皱一般。


她自言自语道:“比起让这整串世界成为度假胜地……这些事物肯定有更高的利用价值。”

她放开了那把面包刀,见那东西就这样禁止于原地无法移动,叹了口气。

“这可不是在偷看‘记忆’、‘回声’、‘倒影’——值得一提,也绝对不是‘玻璃’……”

房间开始渐渐地收缩。

“又是场毫无价值的梦。”

这颗星球随之分裂了。


当那片映像被摧毁后,四周飞速闪烁着白色的浑浊雾影。
那片回忆——那片玻璃中蕴含的所有声响化作急流一涌而出。
她闭上双眼,站在原地,耐心等待周围混乱的光线与杂音消散。
过后,她张开双眼,映入眼帘的虚空中只剩下飘散的微弱荧光。
她的心情无比复杂。
在又一阵绚丽的痛苦感消散后,她再次见到了她所最为熟悉,却最无法摸透真相的世界:
纯白与废墟的世界。由记忆所构建而成——Arcaea的领域。

“我其实挺喜欢这一片,”,她喃喃自语道,注视着正于她手掌之上转动的碎片,“但它和这世界的诞生无关。
况且它现在也只是个空壳了。唉……如果我可以观看它们,也请使我能够把它们赶出我的脑袋吧……”

她放手那片玻璃,没有再去看一眼。碎片回到了当初她找寻到它的地方:从地面流过的一条锐利,闪烁的河流。
这名为咲弥的少女将目光投送至远处狭长宽广的地平线,一边无意识地摸着嘴唇,向前迈着步子,
一边回想着方才记忆中的场景,将其蕴藏的价值与数千个同类进行着比较。

英文剧情

It isn’t blood.

It isn’t anything.

The gentleman’s throat is cut in what should be an awful way... but the memory lacks a concept of what
“awful” would be. Instead of a shredded, vicious image, his neck now looks akin to torn and crumpled
paper. Inside is not “shadow” but “negative space”: a void inside his body. The edges of the wound flicker
weakly with some white light, and off the blade of the knife she’d used to strike him, vibrant shards float
aloft... simply hanging in the air.

And Donovan can’t comprehend it. Many of the patrons, too, are in awe and horror of her act. People fall,
women faint, and Donovan reaches for his neck. Some men leap for her, pull back her forearm and hold her
at her neck. She grips the knife tightly, and with a dull expression stares into the husband’s bewildered eyes.

While she hardly struggles with the guests apprehending her, she spots behind Donovan a girl in absolute
hysterics on the floor. The sound of her voice becomes increasingly distorted, beginning to crackle and
fluctuate in volume. Already, then: the memory has broken.


This wasn’t how it went. Even the most time-changed memories could not be altered so. For a wife to,
unprompted, attack her husband this way during a moment of peace...

She’d hoped to provoke a reaction, and is thus satisfied by this result. Although a few of the other people in
the room are unfazed by the commotion, and some even seem to have lost their faces entirely, alteration of
a memory to this extent is a veritable first. This, at least, has been a success.

The world begins to crack, fractures appearing wherever she can see. Reality afterward looks almost
wrinkled from it.


She says to herself, “Making entire worlds for vacation... Surely there would be better uses for that.”

She lets go of the bread knife and sighs, seeing how it can’t move from the space where she’d abandoned it.

“Not a peep about ‘memory’, ‘echoes’, ‘reflections’—importantly, not ‘glass’...”

The room constricts.

“This was another worthless dream.”

The planet divides.


White blears and obscures, briefly flashing everywhere as the image is demolished. In a rush of every
remembered sound contained in that recollection, in that slip of glass, she stands with her eye shut until
luminescence and noise fade. She opens her eye to faintly glittering empty space, her mind twists, and after
another wave of effulgent pain she sees again the world with which she is both most familiar, and most
confounded by:

The world of white and ruins. The memory-shaped realm of Arcaea.

“I’d had a good feeling about this one,” she mumbles, watching the rotation of a shard just above her palm.
“But it wasn’t responsible for this world’s creation, and it was almost empty to boot. Hmph. If I can watch
them, let me remove them too...”

She dismisses the glass, not looking as it returns to the space where she’d found it: a glinting, sharpened
river flowing above the ground. The girl named Saya stares off into the plain horizon, stepping forth while
touching her lip absently, and reviewing the events of the recent memory, comparing them all to the wealth
of a thousand others.

中文剧情

“在那些地方,人类可以成为上帝。”

这是她得出的结论。

眼中有花朵绽放的少女在脑中合上了记忆之书。这算不上完全毫无意义——顶多是一大半毫无意义罢了。

她刚开始时曾感十分沮丧:她所造访的那个世界几乎是被她立即断定为不具有任何价值,
但那看似无意义之处却向她展示出人类重要的潜力。不过……照目前来看……这还不是很重要。

胜过关于“如何”的假设,有关“原因”的假设更加迫使她继续前行。
这是她的又一场旅程,穿越这世界内大量的废墟,怀抱着没有根据的希望,只为找寻答案,
或者至少找到一条打了擦边球的线索。这向来都是使她走下去的重要动力。
但如今,她的第二个目标浮现了出来——大约在她目睹过两百段回忆之后。


“似乎是找不到任何可能用于重建的新东西了。”她低语道,从近处稀疏的玻璃溪流中召唤过来一片碎片,
“但我倒认为,哪怕它们有一点点价值都是件好事。”

这一片玻璃所散发的光芒吸引了她的目光,而少女也仔细地观赏了它所带来的过往景象,心不在焉地咕哝道,
“就快要到家了……”

她将碎片留于掌心,穿过一座对她而言极为熟悉的桥梁。
在她左手边的是一片杂乱无章的废墟,也许曾经是座城市;
她的右手边则是混乱成堆的玻璃和石头——相当于什么都不存在。
她沿着这遥远的路途前进,终于回到了她“出生”的场所,不去在意自己究竟走了多少步。

她花了她所需要花费的时间,抵达了有着四面坍塌墙壁的地方。墙壁之中有着一颗闪闪发光的巨大水晶球——
一个尚未完成的破碎球体,看着宛如碎裂的贝壳一般。笑容、泪水、死亡与欢庆在它的表面不断闪烁。
鲜花、旷野、沙漠、海洋……动物、人类、科技……


她并不知道自己是否能透过拼凑回忆来重建一个世界。
她甚至不清楚自己能不能就靠将它们以如此形式聚于一处,便让它们“连结”在一起……但她想要尝试一下。

少女手上的新碎片所散发出的光芒使她微微眯起眼睛。“就让我看看,
你能展示给我多少事物吧。”她大声说道。

它打开一个通道,而少女也缓缓融入了这一段新时间中。
顷刻间,她看到了一个人造光芒充盈的世界,几乎无穷无尽地遍布着冲破了夜空云层的人造摩天大楼。
在大楼之间,暗色的车辆破空而过。一股令人不快的气体涌入了她的肺部。刺耳的噪音充斥了她的双耳。
她拟造了一份人格,也拟造了一段过往——面对着这一切,她泰然自若。
数百个问题浮现于她的脑海,而她将会对其逐个进行解答。
无论将要付出何等的代价,也无论需要做什么事情。

英文剧情

“In these other places, humans can act as gods.”

That is what she learned.

The girl with a flower in her eye closes the book of that memory in her mind. It hadn’t been completely
worthless, only mostly.

It had frustrated her at first: the world she had visited was one she had quickly deemed frivolous, but the
frivolity revealed something important to her about the potential of mankind. Still... for now... that wasn’t
very important.

More than theories on “how”, theories of “why” compelled her onward. This had been another of her
journeys out through the ruins of the world in a scattershot hope of discovering that answer, or to even
brush against it tangentially. That was always her focal drive, but a secondary one had been made manifest
after she’d witnessed about two hundred of the memories.


“It didn’t have anything new for a potential reconstruction,” she whispers, beckoning a shard from a nearby,
sparse stream of glass, “but I suppose it’s good that it had some sort of value.”

She lets the gleam of the new piece catch her eye, and she scrutinizes the vision of the past it offers,
muttering absently, “Almost home...”

She carries the fragment over her palm, crossing a bridge with which she’s become very familiar. On her left
is a haphazard pile of what once might have been cities, on her right is a chaotic mass of glass and stone—
recognizable as nothing. She marches the long way back to the place where she was “born”, uncaring of
how many steps it takes.

She takes however long she needs to reach and stop before a place of four fallen walls, between them an
immense sphere of shimmering crystal—an unfinished sphere broken apart, like a cracked shell. Smiles,
tears, deaths, and celebrations flicker in and out its facets. Flowers, plains, deserts, oceans... Animals,
people, technology...


She doesn’t know if she can recreate a world by piecing together memories. She doesn’t even know if she
can truly “connect” them at all by gathering them together like this... But she can try.

She squints lightly to the gleam of the new piece she’s brought. “Let’s see how much you can show me,” she
says aloud.

So it opens, and the girl fades into a new time. In short order, she sees a world brimful with artificial glow,
crowded by endless and nigh-infinite towers of man reaching through clouds of an evening sky, and dark
vehicles roaring through the air. An unpleasant atmosphere flows into her lungs. Cacophony fills her ears. As
she assumes an identity, assumes a new past, she looks on, unmoved. A hundred questions rise in her
mind... She will have them answered. No matter what that takes, no matter what needs to be done.
