An action always comes with a consequence, doesn't it?
- Dwarf King
|Meanwhile, in Dwarf Land...|
|Cut to the Dwarf King, standing on a podium with a mic and monitors. An arrow labelled "Your King" is pointing up at him in a sign.|
|Dwarf King||My loyal, bearded subjects.|
The reconstruction of Dwarf Land has been a trying time for all of us.
|Dwarf King||We have each known, down to the very roots of our beards, the sting of sacrifice and hardship.|
From the lowliest among you to even I, your king, who had to miss a bath one day.
|Dwarf King||But at long last our kingdom is rebuilt. Rebuilt forever.|
|Dwarf King||Behind me lies the full glory of the new kingdom you built from ashes.|
From those very ashes, Dwarfland is reborn. Sturdier, stockier, and beardier than ever before.
|The crowd cheers loudly as traces of meteor fly past...|
|Dwarf King||Let your cheers reach the heavens. Let the gods themselves know that Dwarfland, our Dwarfland will never burn, will never...|
|Dwarf King||I'm sorry, does it smell like flaming rocks raining from the sky to anyone else?|
|The kingdom behind the Dwarf King explodes into bright flames. He looks behind and sees the smoke pour out.|
|Dwarf King||Y'know. We probably shouldn't have left all the architects, engineers, and scholars in their homes when we called this meeting.|
Boy. Hindsight, huh?
