    1: Background info
    1-A: Introduction
    Testing, testing, one, two, three... good, the microphone's working okay.
    It's me, Soniclover.  The guy who makes pointless topics on the SGSB when he's
    bored.  Thank you for your interest in my Luigi's Adventures FAQ.
    I have documented all Luigi's stories about his adventures, word for word.  I
    have also documented all the Super Luigi books, which tell similar stories.
    This FAQ wouldn't be a Luigi's Adventures FAQ without the Super Luigi books,
    would it now?

    1-C: Technical junk
    I did not get Luigi's permission to reproduce his stories in document form.
    'Course, it's hard to get permission from a video game character.  Well, you
    get my point.
    If you want to mention something to me, here's my e-mail address.  Please, do
    not abuse it.
    Did I forget anything?  I don't think I did.
    2: Luigi's adventures
    Ah, the good part.  Let's see what Luigi has to say.  I have my own comments
    about Luigi's stories, which I will indicate in square [] brackets.
    2-A: Waffle Kingdom Letter
    Hear this story after raiding Hooktail Castle and getting the first Crystal
    My big brother--that's you, Bro--got a letter from Princess Peach and took off.
    Left behind as usual, I was cooking a snack at home when another letter
    arrived.  We don't get so much mail, so I was thinking: "Huh?" This is what the
    letter said: "Sirs!  My name is Crepe.  I am a cabinet minister in the far-off
    Waffle Kingdom.  Our land has been attacked by the Chestnut King, who took our
    Princess Eclair. [Your typical video game plot.]  I ask, nay, BEG for your
    assistance!  The Waffle Kingdom needs your skills.  I humbly request your
    prompt response, sirs.  Sincerely, Crepe" ...Well, I don't remember it exactly,
    but I think it went something like that.  With Mario--that's you, Bro-- gone,
    it fell to me to answer this plea!  Hesitating only a teensy bit [strange.
    Heroes don't usually hesitate for that long], I headed to the Waffle Kingdom to
    investigate.  Oh, no, first I wrote a note to myself about what I was cooking.
    Then I left.  Once I reached the Waffle Kingdom, I met Minister Crepe, who
    filled me in.  The Chestnut King had kidnapped Princess Eclair and vanished.
    Apparently, though, some oracle said a Marvelous Compass could locate her.
    This Marvelous Compass had been broken into seven parts by an ancient curse...
    ...and those parts had been scattered across the land.  Can you believe it,
    Bro?  Each part of the Marvelous Compass was said to point to the next. [Hm,
    Nintendo has some creativity issues.  That's exactly what happens with the
    Crystal Stars.]  And since one of the parts was embedded in the tiara worn by
    the princess... I surmised that once I collected all the parts, I'd find her!
    Smart, huh?  The minister gave me the compass base spoken of in Waffler
    fables... When it activated, the entire thing lit right up, indicating the deep
    south... It was pointing me toward Rumblebump Volcano on the Pudding Continent!
    So yeah, here I am!  I'm sailing out of Rougeport for Rumblebump Volcano.  It's
    probably gonna be pretty dangerous, but... I gotta rescue that princess!
    2-B or not 2-B?
    Sorry, couldn't resist the pun.
    *ahem* 2-B: Rumblebump Volcano
    Hear this story after locating the second Crystal Star and turning the Magnus
    Von Grapple into scrap metal.
    As soon as my ship docked on the Pudding Continent, I set out for the volcano.
    To reach my destination, I spent several days fording through dense jungle...
    Scary beasts were all over!  More than once I thought I was done for, Bro!  I
    may have screamed a bit.  To scare them off, you know.  But as fate would have
    it... A Blooper named Blooey heard me shrieking and found me in this one town.
    Blooey was on a journey of his own, but he joined me after hearing my tale.
    Now, Blooey's a madman.  Back in his hometown, they call him "White Torpedo"!
    Yeah, he's a tough guy.  Anyway, he helped me fight to Rumblebump Volcano.
    This place was all about bubbling lava pools and heat that'd make the sun
    sweat. [Well, it's a volcano.  What'd you expect?]  AND, the place was lousy
    with evil traps designed to protect the compass piece.  The scariest one of all
    was this gigantic, 100-foot-tall statue that stomped around.  Now, the weakness
    of this giant statue, Bro, was a red gem on its forehead... Now, I can jump
    high, but not high enough to reach this thing by a long shot.  So I came up
    with this plan for Blooey to hit that weak spot!  "All you, man!" I said.  I
    waited for a pause in the statue's movements and hucked Blooey up there!
    [Hucked?]  And bull's-eye!  The White Torpedo saved the day!  That jewel got
    whacked!  It was a critical hit, and that stone statue toppled and crumbled
    into pieces!  Once that was done, it was an easy stroll to the room where the
    treasure was.  Unfortunately, Princess Eclair was nowhere to be found... But I
    got another piece of the Marvelous Compass, and put it in the base... Now the
    compass pointed west, to Plumpbelly Village on the Strudel Continent.  So I set
    sails once again and came back here to Rougeport to recharge.  That's what
    happened to me lately, but I'll be heading back out soon...
    Blooey the Blooper's comments: "Hey there, I'm Blooey. ...And this guy is a
    total liar!  Don't listen to him!  You heard his story, right?  Well, he did
    TRY to throw me, but he completely tripped!  And what happens?  I end up
    landing in lava!  LAVA, man!  You think that feels good? [But if that's true,
    how did Luigi beat that statue thing?]  Thanks to him, you can stick a fork in
    me!  I'm well-done!  My pale skin's crispified!  I'll NEVER forgive this guy!
    I'm gonna make him pay if it takes my whole lifetime!  That's the ONLY reason
    I'm still hanging around with him.  YOU'LL PAY, LUIGI!"
    2-C: Plumpbelly Village
    Hear this story after conquering the Glitz Pit and obtaining the third Crystal
    Once we made landfall on the Strudel Continent, we made for Plumpbelly Village.
    Once we got there, though, we immediately noticed that something was wrong.  We
    learned from the mayor that the town was ruled by a giant snake named Hizza!
    He said that his own daughter was gonna be offered up as a sacrifice to this
    beast, too!  So, of course, being heroic, I offered myself up to go in her
    stead!  Brave, huh?  Now, the custom was for sacrifices to be dressed as
    brides, so I got all dolled up... [I would LOVE to have seen this.] I was one
    hot sacrifice, Bro.  I looked so good, I fooled our foes and got in Hizza's
    lair.  It was kind of rough fighting in that gown, but I managed.  Chiffon
    really chafes, Bro!  I finally found Hizza... and the snake had a second head
    on its tail!  Talk about scary!  I fainted real quick, but when I came to, I
    managed to distract both heads... It reared up, fangs bared to attack, and at
    that moment, I deftly lunged left!  His gaping mouths smashed into one
    another... and he vanished in a cloud of smoke! [The Super Luigi book
    explains... Hizza ate himself.]  A shining plate fell down on the spot where
    Hizza's body had been coiled... Yes!  Another compass piece!  I set it, and it
    pointed east, to Circuit Break Island!  Just as I was about to leave town, the
    mayor asked me to stay and marry his daughter.  I thought about it--she was
    sorta cute--but we ended up sneaking off the next morning.  I mean, I still
    have to save Princess Eclair from the Chestnut King!  And...when the Marvelous
    Compass activated this time, I heard somebody's voice.  It was so beautiful,
    Bro... I'm certain it was Princess Eclair's voice!  My heart began to race!
    That's when I realized it: Princess Eclair... I think I... Oh!  I kinda zoned
    out there.  Umm... So, yeah.  We set sail again after ditching town... And
    somehow we managed to get back here to Rougeport.  And here I am!
    Jerry the Bob-omb's comments: "Hi, I guess.  I'm Jerry.  I'm a Bob-omb from
    Plumpbelly Village.  Nice meeting you.  Sorry I sound so down, but you would be
    too if you saw Luigi dressed as a bride. [Maybe I wouldn't LOVE to have seen
    that.]  I'm serious.  It scarred me.  It was honestly scarier than that giant
    snake-thing.  I feel I now have a moral duty to stop Luigi from ever dressing
    as a bride again.  I have to protect the world from my fate.  That's why I'm
    sticking close to this guy."
    2-D: Circuit Break Island
    Hear this story after breaking the curse of Twilight Town and snagging the
    fourth Crystal Star.
    Just as our boat arrived at Circuit Break Island, we heard this incredible
    racket!  We soon found out that they hold kart races almost every day on the
    island.  Whoever takes first place in the race gets to rule the island as king
    for that day.  Just as we got to the race-track, they were holding the awards
    ceremony... I couldn't believe my eyes!  Right there, on the trophy they give
    to the winner... It was another piece of the Marvelous Compass!  I almost
    passed dead away!  I decided right then and there that the only thing to do was
    enter the next race. [Well, duh.]  I mean, I've driven in kart races before, so
    I thought I'd be OK.  Boy, was I wrong.  The karts were supercharged machines
    that could send you airborne with their exhaust!  These vehicles were armed
    with missiles and bazookas... It was "anything goes," Bro!  Of course, I wanted
    to get right out of there, pronto!  These drivers were crazed!  But I worked up
    my courage and signed up anyway.  And my race day finally came... I got one of
    the best karts: the Big Green 01!  I took my position at the start line... The
    light went green, I stomped the accelerator... and something bad happened. [You
    expected something like this.  I know you did.]  I was in reverse!  The Big
    Green 01 went rocketing backwards with me yelling... I crashed into the wall
    behind me hard enough to cut me off midscream. [Midscream?  Luigi certainly has
    a unique way with words.]  In one fell swoop I dropped into last place and
    wrecked my racing machine... But it wasn't all bad news: all the other cars
    crashed because of my maneuver... Once I got in gear and took off, I was the
    only car left!  I won by a country mile, Bro! [Country mile?  That any
    different from a regular mile?]  I took the piece off of my trophy and added it
    to the Marvelous Compass... The compass came to life and pointed me toward
    Jazzafrazz Town in the east!  Then I heard that voice! Princess Eclair's voice
    echoed in my ears again!  Oh, my princess!  Random words would form poetry if
    spoken by your voice!  I will most definitely save you!  Just wait for me!
    Princess Eclair!!!  Oh! Sorry about that, Bro... Umm... So, after that, I got
    back on my boat... And came back here to Rougeport.  And that's what's been up
    with me.
    Torque the Buzzy Beetle's comments:  "Yeah, I'm Torque, and don't for a second
    think this dude's tellin' the whole story.  The only reason I lent him my rig
    was 'cause he got down on his knees and begged.  And what happens?  He's in it
    for one second before he completely totals it!  Idiot!  I'm not lettin' this
    dip outta my sight until he repays me the 5,000-coin repair costs! [Same old,
    same old.]"
    2-E: Jazzafrazz Town
    Hear this story after sailing to Keelhaul Key and finding the fifth Crystal
    As soon as we hit Jazzafrazz Town, we were overcome by the glitz and the
    glamour.  It's a very lively place, Bro.  Tons of Dayzees live there, and
    they're always smiling!  While looking for the piece of compass, I met a hip
    Dayzee named Hayzee.  Hayzee was a producer, and he was looking for actors to
    go on stage with him.  I told him we couldn't, since we were looking for the
    compass part, you know.  But Hayzee said we could WIN the compass part in the
    upcoming Drama Slam!  He said the so-called Dramalama Plaque might, in fact, be
    one of the parts!  Well, we just had to give it a try, so we rehearsed with the
    cast and hit the stage!  Our musical was called "The Mystery of the Fiery Hat
    of Social Awareness." [Whew, what a title.]  The script was great, but I got
    really hosed, Bro... My "role"... My "part"... ...Was grass!  I played grass by
    the side of the road!  Grass, Bro!  Grass!  I just sprawled out on the ground
    and had to be silent.  Everyone but me had lines... I don't care if I was
    wearing green!  Who casts someone based on that?  It was awful! [All right, we
    get the point.]  In the end, our musical was the talk on the town, and we won
    the Drama Slam.  I got the compass part I was after, but even that didn't make
    me very happy.  The huge after-party just bummed me out more, so I snuck out
    the back door.  But WOW!  Outside were tons of fans!  MY fans!  Fans of grass!
    They swarmed me!  I just couldn't believe it!  Imagine!  Cheering for grass!  I
    was ecstatic, Bro! [Well, they ARE Dayzees.  What would they be fans of, if not
    grass?]  After that I added the piece to the Marvelous Compass, which pointed
    north.  It pointed to the Rapturous Ruins in Grimble Forest.  Then... The voice
    again... Oh, my cherished Princess Eclair!  How you soothe me!  I would be
    grass for you... I will find you!  I will reach you!  I will stand by your side
    and be your Luigi!  Wow.  Sorry about that, Bro.  Umm... So, yeah, anyway...
    Then I got back on my boat.  I came back to Rougeport, and here I am, another
    leg of my adventure completed!
    Hayzee the Dayzee's comments:  "I'm Hayzee!  And I must say, Luigi is a great
    actor, one of the finest I've seen! [Finally, one of Luigi's partners that
    ISN'T complaining.]  After this adventure, we're going on tour to appear on
    stages everywhere!  I'm going to be known as "The Red Miracle"!  And, of
    course, Luigi will be grass!"
    2-F: Rapturous Ruins
    Hear this story after riding the Excess Express and grabbing the sixth Crystal
    Star from Poshley Sanctum.
    After journeying deep into the Grimble Forest, I found the domed Rapturous
    Ruins.  Inside, everything was pure white.  You couldn't tell where the floor
    became walls... Proceeding dead ahead, I found myself in a chamber where a
    young boy sat.  As I approached the boy, someone named Screamy appeared out of
    nowhere!  Screamy said the boy's name was Cranberry, and that he'd wake for a
    child of fate.  That didn't make any sense to me, so I started searching
    quietly for the compass piece.  But then it happened, Bro: I got a tiny tickle
    in my nose, and I let out a huge sneeze!  Well, Cranberry must've heard it,
    'cause he opened his eyes right up!  He looked at me and smiled.  And all of a
    sudden I could understand his language!  Can you believe it?  I leaerned that
    the boy was the last of an ancient race, the Luffs... He had been there
    guarding the Marvelous Compass piece for the last thousand years!  He told me
    that the compass is an item with the power to see into the future... The
    ancient Luff empire used the power of the compass to rule much of the world.
    Because of their greed, they were cursed by the compass, and their empire
    collapsed. [A perfect case of cursed justice.]  To prevent a repeat of their
    fate, Cranberry broke the compass into seven parts. [Huh?  I thought it was the
    curse itself that broke the compass.]  He hid six and kept one, putting himself
    to sleep until a worthy hero woke him. [No doubt, being woken by a sneeze is
    not what he had in mind.]  I WAS that hero, Bro!  He gave it to me, and then he
    and the ruins vanished... When I added that piece to the compass... It pointed
    to the far north, where dreaded Hatesong Tower stands.  This time, I heard
    Princess Eclair's voice more clearly than ever before!  I will rescue the
    princess!  I will be super!  And then I'll... I'll... I'll... Well, I'll figure
    the rest out later.  Anyway, I headed back here to Rougeport after that.  I'm
    making my final preparations for my final battle now.  I'm a little nervous,
    Bro.  But that's what I've been up to, anyway!
    Screamy the ???'s comments:  "...I'm Screamy.  I wonder what future is plotted
    for us by he who holds the compass... For I must deliver something... [What?]"
    2-G: Hatesong Tower
    Hear this story after collecting all seven Crystal Stars.  The last one is on
    the moon, of all places!
    Hatesong Tower stands atop a jagged, unclimbable cliff beyond the northernmost
    sea.  The winds whistle down the cliff, howling like banshees singing songs of
    hate... People say it's pretty much the scariest place in the world.  And I had
    to go there.  Blocking out the bone-chilling howls, I somehow managed to reach
    the tower's door.  I was terrified, but thoughts of Princess Eclair warmed my
    heart and gave me power.  All of my companions felt the same way.  They were
    with me to the bitter end. [He's still got everyone else with him?]  The door
    to the tower swung slowly opened to reveal an inconceivable darkness... I tried
    to call out Princess Eclair's name, but I couldn't even breathe because... As I
    strained my eyes in the darkness, I saw the most terrifying beast of all!  The
    Chestnut King himself appeared before me!  He was monstrous and drooling!
    Puddles of toxic goo dripped from his mouth, melting the very ground at our
    feet!  I couldn't stop shaking, but I gritted my teeth and faced the evil beast
    dead-on!  I dodged the king's fangs, jumped onto his chest, and gave him a
    hammer-whack! [Where'd he get the hammer?]  My swing split the air and crashed
    dead-center onto the Chestnut King's skull!  Hope powered me up, Bro!  I was
    going toe-to-toe with the king, and I was loving it!  "This is it!" I thought!
    I can win this!  I'll risk it all on my next blow!  I gripped my hammer tight
    and waited for my moment... The tension stung me... SHHHWHAAAAACK!  The ocean
    winds raged against the tower windows!  With that sound as my call to battle, I
    advanced with no mercy in my heart!  And then..................................
    ............ And then..........................................................
    ...................................................... [Come on, get on with
    it!]  .........................................................................
    .............................................. I beat him.  I defeated the
    Chestnut King.  An even worse beast came next, a nightmare thing... but I beat
    it, too. [Agh!  He's skipping all the good parts!]  ...........................
    I rescued Princess Eclair.  It was all over.  And then I came back to Rougeport
    and had a light lunch.  And that's about it.  ..........................  Huh?
    You think there's more to the story than that?  Not at all.  That's it.  That's
    the whole story of the quest for Princess Eclair.  The End.  But my adventures
    won't end here, Bro... They'll never end... [Somehow I doubt THAT.]
    Blooey's comments:  "Hey!  You!  Remember me?  It's me, Blooey!  Maaaan, that
    last battle was hairy!  You have no idea!  I was burnt to a crisp, but I was
    actually kinda relieved, if you can believe that! [Huh?]  But if you want the
    whole story, you should just ask Luigi here!  Wahahaha!"
    2-H: Super Luigi Book
    Hear this story once you've beaten the main game and rescued Princess Peach.
    Actually, know what?  This guy actually novelized my quest!  He's been
    interviewing me.  He was actually interviewing me here at the inn during breaks
    from my adventure!  I didn't think anyone would be interested in reading a book
    about Luigi... But "Super Luigi" came out recently, and check this out, Bro:
    here in Rougeport... It's set a new record for consecutive weeks at number one
    on the best-seller list!!! [Well, will they make a Paper Luigi game out of it?]
    Oh ho ho ho ho ho ho ho!  Hooray for Luigi, Bro!  I started reading it the
    other day, but it's an encyclopedic account in multiple volumes... Excruciating
    detail, Bro.  It's like a history book!  ...It seemed like one, anyway.
    They've got it in the shop here in Rougeport.  How about you snag a copy, Bro?
    [Heh!  I've already got all five volumes.]
    3: Super Luigi
    You waited for this, didn't you?  Okay, here it is.  You can buy these books
    from the Toad Bros. Bazaar in Rougeport.
    3-A: The Quest Begins
    You can buy this book after breaking the curse of Twilight Town and snagging
    the fourth Crystal Star.
    Have you ever experienced a time when no matter how hard you tried, you failed,
    and the time you spent felt wasted? [Yeah, I did, the first time I battled the
    Shadow Queen.]  If ever you feel such pangs of regret, try to remember this
    tale...the story of a young man's quest to save a sweet princess.
    (That was the intro.  Now for the real thing.)
    The day dawned like any other, but little did Luigi know the letter he was
    about to receive would forever change his destiny. [Forever?  Yeah, right.]
    "-Sir Luigi- Danger besets us on all sides, and we beg your help!  The foul
    Chestnut King has stolen our treasure: our fair princess." The letter was from
    Minister Crepe of the Waffle Kingdom, a man aware of Luigi's many adventures.
    [What many adventures?  Mario is much more well-known than Luigi.]  He knew
    only Luigi could save them.  Charged with this dire task, Luigi wasted no time
    curtailing the heroic meal he was making.  Then he packed for his deadly
    journey.  Knowing that his older, though less talented [Must be a typo.],
    brother was out on a no-doubt inconsequential errand, Luigi took a moment to
    leave a note.  "Mix a Keel Mango with a Peachy Peach to whip up a Fruit
    Parafait." [Real Zess T. recipe!]  These cryptic words were all Luigi wrote
    before leaving.  Upon reaching the Waffle Kingdom, Luigi was greeted by pure
    misery, an endless flow of tears over the kidnapping of Princess Eclair.
    Arriving at the castle, Luigi was greeted by Minister Crepe, who carefully
    handed him a compass base with only one intact section.  "Our land had a second
    treasure: the Marvelous Compass.  Find its seven parts, and find Eclair." So
    it began...
    3-B: Allies in Adventure
    You can buy this book after sailing to Keelhaul Key and finding the fifth
    Crystal Star.
    "It's a little warm," Luigi muttered, the sweat dripping from his brow as he
    followed the compass up Rumblebump Volcano's side.  "Must...find...the...
    secret...grotto."  While Luigi had guts to spare, he did need a guide, and he
    found one in Blooey, a Blooper he met in town.  Brave Blooey joined Luigi and
    instantly proved to be invaluable. [Instantly?  I don't think so.]  With his
    aid, Luigi bested a savage statue that protected the treasure.  That treasure
    was none other than a piece of the Marvelous Compass, a piece that pointed west
    to Plumpbelly Village.  The second Luigi saw Plumpbelly Village, he knew
    something was amiss.  All was woe, and Luigi soon learned the reason why from
    the mayor.  The town was at the mercy of a sinister serpent, who demanded
    sacrificial lasses. [I don't think this mentions that the mayor's daughter is
    going to be one of them.]  Burning with indignation, Luigi formed a team of
    liberators.  A fierce Bob-omb warrior named Jerry joined his crew and chose,
    not surprisingly, to stick with Luigi for the duration of his quest for Eclair.
    Fortified by his allies, Luigi strode on into the lair of the beast, a foul,
    two-headed snake. [Named Hizza.]  No time to think!  Luigi sprang forth!  Twin
    heads snapped at his heels, fangs dripping venom!  Then, as one mouth gaped
    wide to swallow Luigi, the other crept behind... Our hero searched the
    treachery, and feinted before leaping! [Uh, what does "feinted" mean?]  The
    heads collided, and the beast ate itself!  The prize?  A compass piece!  The
    villagers begged their savior to stay with them, but a grim-faced Luigi pressed
    bravely onward.

    You can buy this book after riding the Excess Express and grabbing the sixth
    Crystal Star from Poshley Sanctum.
    Dauntless Luigi's next test came in the form of a kart race on Circuit Break
    Island, where he won both the contest and a compass piece. [Talk about cutting
    it short, eh?]  The race was fraught with danger, but Luigi pressed through
    adversity to win!  All viewers were awed by Luigi's revolutionary racing style.
    [I don't consider "reversing at top speed into a wall" revolutionary.]  The
    mechanic who built Luigi's racing machine, a Buzzy Beetle named Torque, was so
    stunned by Luigi's race techniques that he joined him.  Reinvigorated [say
    what?], Luigi set sail for Jazzafrazz Town, where he made his stage debut!
    Hayzee, a noted Dayzee producer, gave Luigi a key role.  Playing the part of an
    earth spirit to pure perfection [what happened to grass?], Luigi stole the
    show.  Hayzee's faith in Luigi's natural acting talents was rewarded.  The
    performance won a prize, which yielded another compass piece.  Hayzee turned
    from teacher to pupil, joining Luigi on his quest [as usual].  It was at this
    time [noooo, it was earlier] that Luigi's heart, usually draped in the cool
    comfort of a hero's resolve, began to warm with thoughts of Princess Eclair.
    This came to be because every time the magic compass pointed to a new place,
    her gentle words rang in her ears, touching him to his very soul.  The voice
    spoke of eternity, of stars in the heavens.  It wept for those blind to love.
    It gave comfort in the face of fear and loneliness. [Yeah, yeah, we get it.]
    Though he had never seen her, our hero was tormented by visions of this fair-
    hearted maiden.  All he could do was press onward.  The compass pointed toward
    Rapturous Ruins.  Only two parts of the compass awaited, and Eclair had one...

    Footsore and weary, Luigi finally found the Rapturous Ruins beyond Grimble
    Forest.  Within them, time and space were lost in nothingness.  Within the
    pale emptiness [and there was a lot of it!], Luigi found a young sleeping boy.
    Our hero called out gently [didn't he sneeze?], and the youth woke from his
    long, long slumber.  "My name is Cranberry, and I've waited for you for the
    last thousand years."  The boy went on to tell Luigi the secret truths of an
    ancient land.  He said that the Marvelous Compass had been created by the
    ancient Luff people, who used its powers of foretelling to rule the world.  But
    the Luff empire was then cursed by the compass, and fell into ruin... [Huh?  I
    don't quite understand this part.]  The survivors dismantled the compass and
    hid its pieces.  Cranberry was the last of the ancient race.  His role was to
    wait until one with a noble heart came to take the burden of the future.  None
    but Luigi could have shouldered this weight.  The boy gave him the compass
    piece, and said, "Fear the curse, but find your Eclair."  Luigi accepted the
    part, the boy's words burned into his brain.  His duty fulfilled, the boy began
    to fade into the blank nothingness... As he faded from sight, a look of joy lit
    Cranberry's face.  As Luigi gaped, both boy and ruins vanished, leaving our
    hero in a dark wood.  With six of the parts united, the compass now pointed to
    the final part... To the quest's end... To Hatesong Tower.  And then, her voice
    spoke... Princess Eclair's voice begged for help from the void, pleading for a
    hero.  Luigi's heart burst aflame... [Where's Screamy?]

    At long last, Luigi crossed the threshold of Hatesong Tower.  Luigi rallied his
    allies.  "We will defeat the Chestnut King.  We must!"  Friends by his side,
    Luigi at last faced the fell Chestnut King...but then he heard a voice, and
    spun to see the fair Princess Eclair.  She told our hero the painful truth: the
    "evil" Chestnut King was actually her true love, made monstrous by Crepe in a
    bid for the throne.  At that moment, the villainous Crepe appeared.  "The
    Marvelous Compass, please.  Hand it over, and the Luff empire will rule again!
    Mwa ha!" [Wow.  That explains a lot.]  Luigi and Co. were no match for the
    might of Crepe, their true enemy.  But then, the compass piece in Eclair's
    tiara shone forth!  It bestowed the future-sight on Luigi!  Knowing Crepe's
    every move, he smote the fiend with his mallet!  And with that...it was finally
    over.  Luigi and his friends parted, leaving the Waffle Kingdom in peace.  But
    Luigi regretted not gazing farther into the future... He longed to see the
    Wafflers gathering on Princess Eclair's wedding day... He wanted to see her
    beauty, and who stood at her side... [I was going to say something here, but
    now I've forgotten.]  But it was not to be.  Luigi went back to his humble
    home, which remained exactly as he had left it, a cold comfort for his heavy
    heart.  Taking up a book he had been reading [he was in the middle of a meal
    when he left, not a book!], Luigi tried to read, but his long trial had sapped
    his strength, and he soon fell asleep.  Luigi dreamt of his friends and his
    beloved Princess Eclair.  And sleeping, Luigi spoke... "I shall return."
    4: Outroduction (is that even a real word?)
    You have just read the stories of Luigi's adventures, just as Luigi told them
    to his older brother, and just as they were documented in the Super Luigi
    books.  Once again, I thank you for your interest in my FAQ.  I hope it serves
    you well.  Don't look at me if you don't know what I'm talking about.
