Quest 1: Garden Competition Edit

Quest Start Edit

Frieda Ah...Spring. Beautiful flowers covered in shades of green and no white snow in sight.
I wonder what my next project will be...
Huh? What's all this?
Excuse me, what is going on here?
Conan Oh, Frieda! I was just about to send Catniss to find you.
Catniss You were?
Frieda Er...Okay?
Conan Yes, look! Isn't this garden amazing?
Frieda It is big.
Conan It is! And this Spring Festival we are holding a little garden competition.
Frieda Garden...competition? Conan, I'm an artist, not a florist.
Catniss We won't force you if you don't want to participate.
Conan But we think you would be able to make some nice arrangements.
Frieda Well, I have made some flower arrangements before...
What's the competition about?

Quest End Edit

Conan So, we decided to hold the Great Egg Hunt in our own garden this year.
That's why we need every artistic cat in the guild to help make it Spring Festival-y!
And what's better motivation than a competition?
Frieda I have to share this garden with others?
Conan Yes, we will give you a part of the garden to work with.
Doing the whole thing by yourself would be too much work.
Frieda Can you promise that no other cat will intrude on the space I get?
Conan Of course.
Frieda Could you also give me a corner piece?
Conan Sure, you're the first one here so you can pick any part of the garden you want.

Quest 2: Contest RulesEdit

Quest StartEdit

Frieda Excuse me. Your name is Edward, correct?
Edward It is.
Frieda And you know the rules for the garden competition?
Edward I do. I am also in charge of growing the flora that you will be using[sic]
Frieda We can't pick flowers ourselves?
Edward The Great Egg Hunt will be held only a week from now, not many flowers will be able to fully grow in that short amount of time.
Thus, we shall use magic and alchemy to speed up the process.
Frieda You can give me any flowers or plant I want?
Edward I shall try, at the very least.
Frieda Okay. I will return with a list.

Quest EndEdit

Frieda Hm...There. This fast sketch should be enough to visualize what I want.
Now to find the flowers I want...
Leonard Oh, hello, Frieda. Looks like we're garden neighbours!
Do you know what kind of flowers you want?
I was thinking of doing something with only green and white.
How does that sound?
Sorry, am I talking too much?
Frieda A bit.
Will you stay on your side of the garden, please?
I don't want anyone to make a mess of my part.
Leonard Roger that, Frieda. Haha... Oh, she's gone...

Quest 3: Flower IdeasEdit

Quest StartEdit

Frieda Excuse me, Leonard.
Leonard Huh? Oh, Frieda. Did you need something?
Frieda I was wondering what flowers you would be using.
Leonard Me? I was thinking white roses, irises and camellias; and some sturdy vines.
Frieda What's a camellia?
Leonard It's a beautiful white flower that represents LOOOOOVE~
Frieda How did you learn of such a flower? I've never seen one.
Leonard Oh, if you want ideas and pictures we have a great book in the library.
Frieda I should pay the library a visit then. Please guard my garden from any intruders while I'm gone.

Quest EndEdit

Frieda Hm...The library is empty. Good.
!
Is someone there?
Logan Don t[sic] hurt me - ow!
Frieda *gasp* Who are you? You're not in this guild.
Logan I'm not. My name s[sic] Logan - ow! I came to the library to find a way to - ow! - rid me of the rosebush curse.
Frieda The rosebush curse?
Logan Yes. I tried plenty of ways to lift my curse. But these thorny vines just keep regrowing - ow!
Frieda Well, I wouldn't know anything about curses or flowers.
I'm just an artist, and I'm actually quite busy.
Logan That's okay - ow! - Do you know anyone in your guild that *could* help me?
I didn't find any - ow! - answers in your library.
Frieda You searched our books? Did you find one with a lot of flowers and plants? With pictures.
Logan Yeah, in that shelf over- ow! - there.
Frieda Thanks. I'm participating in a garden competition and I need to learn about new flowers.
Logan Okay - ow! - I guess I'll leave...

Quest 4: Rosebush Curse Edit

Quest Start Edit

Frieda Logan. I found the flowers I want to use!
Logan Good -ow!- for you.
Frieda Since you helped me, I'll help you.
Logan Really?
Frieda Come.
Excuse me, Conan. We need help.
Conan Oh, who's this guy?
Logan My name's Logan. I've got a curse on me - ow!
Conan A curse?! Does it spread?!
Logan I actually don't - ow! - know.
Conan *gasp*
RED ALERT! RING THE BELLS!

Quest EndEdit

Francis What's with the shouting?
Edward I am also slightly...annoyed. I am in the middle of preparing the magical procedure of growing all the seeds for the competition.
*Your* competition, Conan.
Conan Sorry, but we have an emergency! This cat, Logan, has been struck by the rosebush curse!
Francis What's that?
Conan You tell me!
Edward I regret to inform you that I also have never heard of this curse.
Logan I got the name - ow! - from a druid in the woods.
She didn't say how to save me, though...
Conan Did she say if it spreads?
Logan I think it's safe - ow! - But I have to get these vines off me.
Frieda They do look hurtful.
Francis What kind of cat gave you this curse? Maybe you are a villain?!
Logan I may have dabbled in some bad magic rituals while tending to my garden... But I'm - ow! - no villain, I swear!
Conan Well, as heroes, we have no choice but to help you.

Quest 5: Cure Attempt #1 Edit

Quest Start Edit

Logan Thank you for bringing me - ow! - to your guild mates, Frieda.
Frieda While they try to cure you from the rosebush curse I will be setting up my part of the garden.
Logan If they rid me of - ow! - these vines, I would gladly help you with that garden, Freya.
Frieda My name is Frieda. And I would rather work alone, if that's alright.
Logan Oh, sure, sure. Good luck, then.

Quest EndEdit

Edward Okay, my potion is ready.
*ahem* First attempt: Cold Snap Potion.
Chance of success: 40%
Logan Those are better - ow! - odds than I hoped for Edmond.
Edward My name is Edward. Please try to be still.
The vines seem to be freezing properly.
Logan Brr! They're pretty cold.
Edward Let's try to break them.
Logan What's with the giant needle?! And a hammer?!
Edward Worry not, my aim is very precise.
There!
Logan Ooooow! They grew back...I should've known.
Edward Hm...
Francis My turn! Attempt number two!

Quest 6: Francis' Turn Edit

Quest Start Edit

Edward I had a dozen more ideas for how to get rid of these vines, Francis.
If you would only just-
Francis Step aside, Evan! It's my turn.
Go and grow the seeds for the garden competition like you're supposed to.
Edward *murmur*
Francis Now. Let's see how my magical flames will do against your little plant.
Logan Uhm... fire?
Francis Yeah, we can just torch all the vines, no problem!
Logan Is that - ow! - safe?
Francis Not at all!

Quest End Edit

Francis Man, the vines just keep growing back!
Logan Yes - ow! - that's how it works...
I'm just glad you didn't burn my fur - ow!
Francis Hm...
Logan So, what's plan B?
Francis I don't know!
Guess I shouldn't have shooed off Evan...
Logan Well, Franco, thanks for trying at least.
Francis Mhm, we need help.
Purrcilla Did you call?

Quest 7: Rose Bloom Edit

Quest Start Edit

Purrcilla If you ever need my help, you only have to call, Francis.
Francis Were you watching us from behind a bush or something?
Purrcilla No, I just got here.
Logan Are you another - ow! - mage?
Purrcilla Yes, I am. My name is Purrcilla.
But you should know, if the great Francis can't help you, I don't think I can either.
Francis I know I'm the greatest mage of all time, but maybe you know more about curses than I do?
Purrcilla Hey, look, some beautiful little roses have bloomed on you.
Logan Oh no!

Quest End Edit

Francis What do you mean, "Oh no"?
Logan Well, if any rose blooms - ow! - it s[sic] a sign that I ll[sic] turn into so much foliage, I ll[sic] be a plant forever, Franco.
Francis Oh, man, that sounds awful. I'm glad I don't have that curse.
Purrcilla If you don't want it, is it okay if I pick the flower?
Ow! It stung me!
Francis You okay?
Purrcilla No, look, I'm bleeding!
Francis That's the tiniest sting I've ever seen...
Logan Uhm, can we get back to - ow! - saving me?
It's only a matter of hours before I turn into a plant!

Quest 8: Panic! Edit

Quest Start Edit

Francis How do you know you only have hours left?
Logan Well, if I'm covered in roses - ow! - the curse will have finished its job.
Francis Urgh, okay... Uhm, maybe we should get Evan. Or everyone.
Purrcilla I have never seen anything like this.
Francis But we have to help him, Purrcilla!
Logan Please don't panic. It only makes me panic.
Francis But I don't know what to doooooo!
Purrcilla Francis?!

Quest End Edit

Francis EVAN! DROP EVERYTHING YOU'RE DOING AND COME WITH ME!
Edward *sigh*
You made me drop my vial...
Catniss You can't just come and shout like that, Francis.
Francis I don't care, come on!
Edward What is the problem?
Francis The rosebush curse! I don't know how to cure it.
And that cat will be turned into a plant soon!
Catniss It's getting worse?
Francis Yes!
Catniss What have you tried so far?
Edward We tried freezing the vines, then Francis tried burning them.
Francis But they just keep growing back!
Catniss Hm... sounds like physical forces won't work.
Ed, do you have time to take care of this?
Edward Not really... but it is an emergency.
Bring him here, Francis.
I still have other theories to try.
Francis Ok, ok, ok!
Catniss Great. I have an idea, but I'll be gone for a while.
Just make sure Logan doesn't turn into a plant!

Quest 9: Ruinous Dandelions Edit

Quest Start Edit

Frieda Yes. This will be great. Now I only have to get this list to Edward.
What a great way of doing gardening.
*gasp*
Oh, no, what is this?!
Dandelion seeds?!
They're destroying the bushes - my green canvas of nature!
Who's doing this?!

Quest End Edit

Bob Curio, look here!
Curio Woooow, that's so many!
Frieda You two... Children!
What are you doing?
Curio We're blowing dandelions!
Frieda Well, you should stop. Those seeds are killing the plants in the garden.
Bob I thought seeds only make flowers grow.
Frieda Yes, well... Where did you find those dandelions?
Curio We got them from a bucket by the alchemy station.
Bob Yeah, Edward had tossed them away so we thought it was okay to take them.
Frieda Magical dandelions..?
That kill plants?
Hm...

Quest 10: Cure Attempt #11 Edit

Quest Start Edit

Edward Eleventh Attempt: Dehydrating Mud. Success Rate: 10%
Francis Ew, is he supposed to roll in that mud?
Logan If it saves me, I'm willing to do anything.
Edward It is only a foul odor.
A minor inconvenience, all things considered.
Catniss Hey, how's it going guys?
Edward Regretably[sic], not that great.
Catniss Let's hope my idea works then.
Tekah Is this the curse I'm supposed to cure?
Logan Who is this?
Tekah I am Tekah, one of the twin spirits of spring.
Logan And you can save me?
Tekah No.

Quest End Edit

Catniss Wait, are you sure you can't help Logan?
Tekah I melt snow. My powers come from the sun.
A rosebush curse is not something I can cure.
Logan Buy you - ow! - seem to know of the curse.
Do you have any idea of who can help?
Francis I guess the mud is all that awaits you, Logan...
Tekah My sister could probably speed up the process if you want to turn into a plant faster.
Catniss If you can't help then why did you agree to leave the Zenpaws to come here?
Tekah Spirits are patient - and vengeful - beings.
And I have a meeting with a certain Spring Festival Bunny.

Quest 11: The Solution Edit

Quest Start Edit

Frieda Excuse me - Oh! you[sic] look a lot prettier now, Logan.
Logan Thank you - ow! - Frieda. But the prettier I get the worse I feel...
Frieda Edward, here's a list of all the plants I want.
I'm going to need them in the exact colors I've specified.
If not, you will have ruined my whole creation.
Edward Ehm... Okay.
I will get to that as soon as we find a way to cure Logan of his curse.
Frieda I already have the solution for that.
Logan You do?!
Francis Phew! Guess I won't be the cause of a cat turning into a plant!
Logan What's the - ow! - solution?
Frieda Children, strangely enough.

Quest End Edit

Curio Is this the cat?
Bob Prepare yourself for our team attack, rosebush villain!
Curio DANDELION STORM!
Logan Aah! Pfft, pfft! Yuck! I got some in my mouth.
Edward I fail to see how some dandelion seeds are supposed to-
Oh.
Bob Curio, we saved him!
Curio SPRING FESTIVAL HEROES!

Quest 12: Rosebush Cured Edit

Quest Start Edit

Logan I-I'm free!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Frieda No need to thank me.
I only came up with the idea.
The children saved you.
Catniss But what were those dandelions?
Francis Yeah, seems bad if something like that is spreading across Catania.
Frieda Oh, Edward made them.
Edward I did? Oh, wait... Yes, I did.
They were one of my failed attempts at speeding up the growth process.
I did not know they had that kind of effect, however.
Logan Well, all's well that ends well!
Now, how about that garden competition?
I did promise to help you, right, Frieda?

Quest End Edit

Logan So, this is your part of the garden?
It's amazing what a hero guild can do,[sic]
Frieda Yes.
Logan Would you mind showing me your plans?
Frieda Sure. They're in my notebook. Here.
Logan You're going to make this in just a week?!
Frieda Yes. Edward will make magical flowers.
Logan It's still a lot of work.
If you want to be sure that you can make it, maybe tone it down a bit?
Frieda No, I want to do it this way.
No changes.
Logan Okay, okay... Will you at least allow me to help with the arrangements?
There are a lot of flowers you need to plant, and vine to shape.
Frieda Uhm... I'd rather not. But okay. If you can prove yourself.

Quest 13: Final Touches Edit

Quest Start Edit

Edward I have your package, Frieda.
Frieda Thank you.
Nothing's missing, right?
Edward Nothing should be missing. I checked the list three times.
Logan That's a lot of boxes.
How'd you carry all that, Edmund?
Edward With magic, of course.
Logan Magic, huh? Does seem handy sometimes.
Frieda We have to work now.

Quest End Edit

Logan You have very good taste in flowers, Frieda.
Frieda I only picked them based on their shape and colors.
If I tried to care for them they would probably die immediately.
Logan Haha, well you did say you were an artist, not a florist.
Frieda No, that's wrong!
Logan Huh?
Frieda That vine is supposed to go in front of the bar, not behind.
Logan Oh, sorry. Like this?
Frieda Yes. That is correct. Thank you.

Quest 14: The Winner Edit

Quest Start Edit

Conan Welcome to another Great Egg Hunt, guild members!
This year, it will be held in our maze-like garden!
And as a special surprise, we have a secret, super-duper reward for any kit that can catch the Spring Festival Bunny!
Molotov I'll see ya'll inside. Catch me if you can!
Curio He's getting a head start, hurry up, bro!
Conan Yes, yes. 3. 2. 1. GO!
Now that all kittens are busy, it's time to reveal the winner of our *other* competition!

Quest End Edit

Conan First off, a huge thank you to all of you who participated.
You all helped decorate the garden, even if you didn't win.
Now, for the results. In third place and winner of the Ceramic Flowers is... Juliet, and her garden dubbed "Black as Night'!
(Dark flowers are considered beautiful these days..?)
Juliet All that hard work for third place? I blame Edward's alchemical flowers.
Conan Don't be salty.
On to second place, and winner of a dozen lavender rods, is... Leonard and his "Colors of the Wind".
(I don't think the wind has any colors...)
Leonard Haha, seems I *can* paint with the colors of the wind!
Conan (Artistic cats are so weird...)
Congratulations. Finally, the winner of the competition is... FRANCIS!

Quest 15: The Real Winner Edit

Quest Start Edit

Conan No, wait, what did I say?
Leonard You said Francis.
Francis I won? Yay!
Conan No, no, wait! I know who the winner is, and it's not Francis.
Juliet Was he even competing?
Conan No. Someone tampered with this my[sic] notes...
Francis I swear it wasn't me!
Conan *sigh*
Anyway, the winner of the competition is...
Frieda and her garden named "Spring's Spectrum"!
Frieda Yahoo! I won!
Conan Your prize is this golden rose - made out of real gold, actually!
(Oh, I just realized why Francis tried to win..!)

Quest End Edit

Logan Congrats on the win, Frieda.
Frieda Thank you. Also, I'd like to thank you for your help.
I didn't think I would need it, but I did.
Logan Well, you saved my life and I saved your garden, seems like a fair trade, haha.
Frieda I'm gonna do some painting now.
All these flowers have made my paws green and I don't like it.
Logan ...
I have green paws...
