After waiting for Medi to climb into the boat, Theta makes the boat ascend to catch the girl and the chicken. He looks down at the concrete memento left down below. It was his final message before he disappeared for good. Despite only meeting him a few times after already dying and having an overall rough relationship with him, Theta can't help but feel some small part of himself might be... missing? Perhaps one day he'll get over it.
"hold on! we're going up!" He raises the boat upwards, making it also rotate slowly as they make their way out of the massive crater.
The masses stare at the group in the flying boat as it hovers in the air, dipping slightly against invisible waves. Theta looks back at the passengers, visibly somewhat nervous. "um.... where should we go now? I kinda wanna go back home, but do you guys have any business in the city?"

"Alright. next stop: the clock tower!" Theta launches the boat off into the misty skies, away from the city of Necropolis. He keeps it at a fairly quick pace, but thankfully not nearly as fast as the last time he had a joyride.
Ominous flying figures can be sparsely seen weaving in and out of the fog, not particularly with any sort of direction aside from "away". They don't seem to be paying the group any mind.
In the city, the bystanders have begun to wander back to their places.
A particular building, with a sign out front that reads "Starter's end", seems to be attracting a fair amount of them. The room beyond the building's front door leads into a bar, one that seems to be in two places at once, since the stairs at the other end have appeared. With the excess energy from the explosion still lingering, some of the spirits decide to get a little bit of enjoyment out of the deal. It's not much, but it's at least better than what most of their slow afterlives have offered to them.
Meanwhile, across town, a long abandoned train station gains some activity. An ominous train is pulling in?
Paperwork, sent. Any sense of trust, lost. The train leaves the station... A few days and a couple quick hops back home to eat non-fatal food later, Seth and Lycoris arrive in Elysium. Theta stays behind in the train. It appears to be a quite spacious and vegetated coastal town in the underworld. A quiet moment is shared at the campfire, but not much else happens... until Seth mysteriously disappears without a trace.

A couple of seths hop out of a log canoe. Nil and Kusari. The nullsaved one has enjoyed not being considered an existential threat to his brothers and being able to relax, but this latest episode of confusion and panic has him motivated to do whatever to get everyone calmed again. The neckslashed one is in search of answers. So many things he does not remember, important things... If he can find his lost memories, maybe then he can know peace once more.
Kusari glances around the misty docks. "So, this is it. The city of the dead... where in the hell are we gonna find the right building here."
"I don't fucking know, I've never been in this town before," Nil complains.
The two Seths look around for somebody that actually knows their way around these roads.

After some time of wandering around the city, the two seths are struck by a burst of forgotten memories. Nil seems vaguely relieved, mostly only taking it as a sign that the others will calm down soon. He hadn't exactly built much of an attachment to any of the Kats in particular. Kusari though, is overcome by tears. The memory of his final moments had become unlocked, and with it came all the guilt and remorse that prompted such an end. His knees buckle and soon he's brought to the ground, in the middle of the street. Nil just sorta glances at him. "...should I even ask?"
Kusari keeps crying.
"...how about we just get back home now? the bridge might be restored again too."
"IT... IT DOESN'T MATTER... SHE HATES ME, I'M SURE OF IT..." Kusari continues to make a scene.
Nil sighs. "did she hate you before this all went down? If you and her were on bad footing, the gossip would have spread through the tower before. Did she tell you that last time you two were closeby?"
Between sobs, Kusari tries to think back, but it's hard. He doesn't particularly remember her being actively angry at him, but who knows, she could have been concealing it.
"...whatever, let's get moving." Nil begins dragging Kusari back to the canoe.

Some time later....
It is rather hectic in Necropolis today. With the Transformers theme song blaring from so many directions, it would be a surprise if anyone could get any rest in this dead City.
Kusari, drunk from drowning his sorrows at the local tavern, annoyedly makes his way to the docks. He had opted out of Thoren and Raine's wedding for personal reasons. It was Thoren's idea to have him send Kat back to the Lethean Dream the painful way, after all. That being said, watching Thoren getting happy ending would only make him angry.
Besides, he has more important things to attend to today.
Kusari leaps up and flies off towards the tower. There's another one of him in need out there. A version of himself that's actually worthy of salvation.
