I am Monique Gilbeault, a man of style and grace. Though I am my father's third son and thus have no claim to anything save the family name, I am the most accomplished of my father's children.

The only one of us to have truly inherited the skills of my great grandfather, the reknowned duelist Marquise Gilbeault, I have managed to achieve the rank of Captain of the Border Guard of my home country of Granache through naught save my own abilities.

I also placed second in His Majesty's Royal Swordsmanship Tournament, though I lost in the final round because that whoreson Reinhold shattered the blade that I inherited from my great-grandfather on his deathbed... I have yet to pay him back for that disgrace.

The past few days have been a welcome change from the usual tedium of my daily life, as my brother and I are currently visiting the kingdom of Marconetti, our homeland of Granache's oldest ally.

Though I would have liked for him to have come along with me during my tour of the city for the psst few days, Matthias has insisted on doing his own thing for the entire time that we've been here... but at least he hasn't spent the entire time locked in his room, so I suppose I can't complain too much.

How I actually managed to convince him to attend the party itself, I may never know...
>>
-the rules of a gentleman-

As I have come to trust your judgement over the past month or so, I shall defer to your decisions as to which choices I should make in my daily life.

However, I will ignore any such suggestions that would go against my gentlemanly code of conduct or otherwise cause me undue stress.

You have guided me this far, however, and I wish for you to continue to lend me your wisdom.
>>
Clench my fist and curse Reinhold. This is somehow his fault.
>>
After one final check in the mirror to make sure that my appearance is perfect, I make my way to the door of our room and lean against it.

"Matthias!" I call out, "Hurry up, we're going to be late!"
"Hold on a minute, dammit!" my elder brother shouts back from inside his bedroom.

I had been hoping to beat the crowd that I KNOW is going to be there, but I suppose my wish was to no avail.

After what seems like an eternity, Matthias finally emerges from his room, wearing... wow. For what's probably the first time since we were children, Matthias actually LOOKS the part of a member of the nobility! He's wearing a finely-tailored suit, his hair isn't in its usual unkempt state, and the stubble that normally litters his face has been completely shaved off!

Ah, how happy our mother would be to see him like this...

"Quit staring," Matthias says, rolling his eyes, "it's creepy. Now let's get going before I change my mind, this shit's uncomfortable as hell."
"As you wish, brother," I say as I open the door and step aside for him to pass by before I close it behind me.

He's actually doing this, much to my shock... damned if I'll do anything to mess this up.

As we walk, I turn to my brother.

"I want you to know that I do appreciate you coming all this way with me," I say to Matthias. "I know that you hate events like this."
"Whatever..." Matthias says with a look on his face as if his spirits have been completely crushed. "...I figured that two days of relaxation were enough, I have to counter it with shit like this so that my karma doesn't backlash against me at a worse moment."
"Ah, that thing that Michiko was talking about..."

Though she's done her best to adjust to the way that we do things in Granache, our sister-in-law does have many odd customs that I'm still not used to. Matthias, on the other hand, has done his best to learn as much as he possibly can about the ways of her homeland.

To be honest, he pays more attention to her than her own husband does... not that I'd actually say that to ANY of them.

"You look very nice today," I say, placing a hand on my brothers shoulder. "I'm sure that both of us will be -quite- popular with the female guests today..."
"You might like those superficial bitches, but I want nothing to do with them," Matthias says as he brushes my hand aside.
"Come on now," I sigh, "while I readily admit that I've run into PLENTY of women who fit your pessimistic view of nobility, not all of them are like that. Why, just the other day, I was able to assist a lovely young lady from Granache, and she was every bit as proper as one could wish of in a l-..."

...oh wait, Melanie is a -maid-.

Although, according to Nicolette, Reinhold is either equal to, to just below the knights in rank.

No true gentleman should complain about his superiors in such a way.

"In a what?" Matthias asks, obviously wondering why I cut my sentence short.
"Er... I suppose you do have a point," I reply, admitting defeat. "But even though noble women similar to those who you despise may be in the majority, that only serves to make it that much more satisfying when you finally meet a lady who is worth talking to," I say with my best reassuring smile.

"What, like -you- have?" my brother asks me in his bst accusatory tone.
"Why as a matter of fact, I've... AHEM. Never mind about me," I say, running a hand through my hair. "My point is that you can't write all ladies off. Or are you trying to imply that Michiko is the only woman in the entire world who is worth your time?"

Oh my. I probably shouldn't have said that.

While Matthias previously only looked a bit annoyed, now he's glaring at me with that look that usually results in my room being destroyed.

>>29012285
In terms of rank, Reinhold is above a Guard Captain, but below a Knight.
In terms of strength, Reinhold is on the level of the lower tier of knights. Vincent and Gregory are at the very top of that rank.

Since we're Monique now does this mean we're obligated to try and find as many ways to fuck with Reinhold's life?

Because we could always start a shitstorm by calling Citrine a whore, along with whatever other opportunities we'll find in the party

That would be unbecoming conduct of a proper gentleman.

Gentlemen, we are sharing headspace with a noble, albeit an arrogant fop. Let us try to keep a reasonable approximation of good decorum, shall we?
>>
>>29012652
It is because he probably doesn't beat his servants? Or because he knows what work is?
>>
>>29012652
To our standards, sure. Not to his.

Nevermind that he has 0 reasons to insult Citrine at this point. He should have no knowledge of her relation to Reinhold, nor of her background.
>>
>>29012593
Well, we are the voices in his head, and we have more or less collectively agreed that reinhold is in dire need of bros, and while slightly misogynistic, Monique isn't actually that bad of a guy. Further diminishing our standing with reinhold is not in our best interest. More importantly, he technically outranks us, and it is unbecoming of a gentleman to insult his rank superiors.

Hey guys, remember:

"However, I will ignore any such suggestions that would go against my gentlemanly code of conduct or otherwise cause me undue stress."

"And what would -you- know about being a lady?" he says while giving a cold gaze.

To quote comedian Frankie Boyle, I reckon that Monique's friendship with Reinhold will be founded on the diplomatic principle of "You're a cunt. ..But it's okay, I like cunts."

>>29012902
Definitely.

>>29012774
>>29012782

You do have a point... given that Matthias is the brother that I actually LIKE, it would be best to apologize to him.

"Sorry, I went too far there," I say, sighing deeply. "I didn't mean to imply anything untoward."
"Whatever, at least you apologized this time," Matthias says, still glaring at me. "Don't think that I'll let you off easy, though..."

Before I can even react, Matthias spins around and punches me in the shoulder as hard as he possibly can. It's all I can do to keep from falling over.

That really hurts...

"A... are we even now...?" I ask, clutching my shoulder.
"Let that pain you feel serve as a reminder not to run your stupid mouth all the time," Matthias says, not even bothering to look at me.

No worries, this pain will pass soon... hopefully.

Deciding not to press my luck any further, I proceed along with my brother down the route that's shown by the various servants who are acting as path markers, making our way down several flights of stairs and to the gathering hall where the party is being held...

...or so I hoped.

Our long walk ends at the end of a long crowd of people, I can tell from their clothing alone that they're the other guests to Prince Emilio's party. Letting the gift that father had us bring rest on the floor, I let out a long sigh... we're most likely going to be a while.

Considering how long were probably going to be stuck here, looking around to pass the time is a decent idea.

Fat women...

Skinny women...

Old men...

This place is filled with all types, not that that was any surprise. After all, I'm sure that King Celestino invited guests from all over to celebrate his son's birthday.

I know that's what -I- would have done.

As I lean against the wall, I look at the folks who arrived in line just before us...

...or rather, I look at the -woman- who arrived in live just before us. An elegant woman with the same odd type of clothing as Michiko, she is positively STUNNING.

This is just platonic admiration of beauty, I'm not ogling her.

Who do you take me for, Marcel?

Shaking myself free from the clutches of her enchanting beauty, I turn to my brother in hopes for some conversation... and he's staring her as well. And considering that this is -Matthias- that I'm talking about, I can't be sure if it's because of her stunning good looks or because she's from the same Eastern region that Michiko hails from.

Before I'm able to shake my brother free from his staring fit, the woman turns around... damn it, she noticed us.

But instead of making a fool of us (as would entirely be within her rights, considering the situation), she simply looks at the two of us with an amused smirk and turns back around.

As I breathe a long sigh of relief, I notice a man turning around to face us this time, wearing garments of a similar style to the woman's... or Takamaru-san, now that I think back on it.

Oh... oh no. Please don't be what I think you are...

"While I understand that she's beautiful and all, I believe that I should inform the two of you that she is, in fact, taken," the man says with a teasing smile.

Busted.

probably not, though if you've got a few hours to kill go for it. i love the setting and premise (gods can materialize from the aether born of belief. every once in a while a human kills one and when they do they gain that god's powers. then all the mages treat them like royalty so that when another god gets pissed they'll kill it) but i find reading it to be boring, and for the life of me i cannot figure out why the MC puts up with the lead girl

That's because you're a selfish git. Reinhold doesn't deserve half the bitches he's got either. Luci just about threw herself at him, and Sylvie's sole reason for liking Rein is that he's the only guy her own age she's actually spent any real time with.

Reinhold's put about as much effort into deserving his romantic options as Monique has.

"Er, I apologize for my untoward actions," I say with a bow. "I forgot my manners for a moment..."

I then nudge Matthias with my elbow, shaking him out of his Eastern beauty-induced stupor.

"Y- yeah, sorry for that," Matthias says, bowing his head in shame.
"Though I must say, you're quite the lucky man to to have managed to marry such a lovely lady," I say with my best apologetic smile.
"I sure am," the man replies, a proud grin on his face. "Just felt the need to warn you, is all. You see, Akemi here gets hit on -quite- a lot..."

I can certainly understand why.

"Now, now..." the man's wife, apparently named "Akemi" says as she turns back. "...at least these two gentleman simply looked instead of trying to touch," she giggles, smiling at us.
"Yeah," the man sighs, placing a hand to his forehead as if remembering something unpleasant. "I wish that more people remembered the rules of admiring someone else's wife... 'look, don't touch.'"

"I don't know if that should be considered a rule, it's simply common sense," I reply, stunned to hear that there are people here who would actually do such a thing.
"Seriously," the man says, rolling his eyes. "Anyways, I hope you two gentlemen have a nice time at the party."
"Likewise."

With that, both Akemi and her husband turn back around to face the (still-closed) door to the hall, leaving the two of us to our shame.

As we stand there silently, I hear the shrill voices of women gossiping...

"Ugh, that stupid bitch flaunting her 'good looks' again... she's married, why the hell's she trying to attract MORE men?"
"I heard that she's one of those fox monsters they have out in the East!"
"Oooh, I bet she is! Her poor husband, he's going to get his liver eaten..."
"Serves him right for sleeping with an animal."

Bitches and whores... now I'm starting to truly understand Matthias's complaints about these decidedly ignoble women. Spouting gossip without any care as to whether or not it's true, they ought to be ashamed of themselves. And if I can hear their cruel words, then I -know- that Akemi and her husband can...

And as I look over at my brother, he looks like he wants to run over and slap the lot of them.

it is almost assuredly a kitsune, it was quite obvious even before the gossiping women mentioned it. her air and actions clearly indicate a kitsune.

emelio and giancarlo are all i can think of, and she has stated she has zero interest in either of them. melon hasn't said anything either way. i'm not trying to force /u/ stuff, but calling a ship juvenile just because it's girl on girl is retarded, especially when it has real in characterly stated support
>>
>>29014387
>>It's just gossip, ignore it.

>>29014542
And people going out of their way to sabotage other routes is also fucking sickening, what's your point?
>>
>>29014510
Maid is confirmed to have a route and always has been. Nothing about her has even had an inkling of being into ladies.
>>
>>29014519
Schrödinger's Cat - We have no reason to believe she WOULDN'T be receptive either. Again you're declaring one way or the other based purely on your own personal desires on Melanie.

At least the other guy wanted them to be together because A) ONE of the two girls has actually shown an interest in the other, whereas Melanie has shown next to none towards us, and B) they want Melanie and Nicolette to be happy, according to them.

Basically your entire stance is "Fuck their happiness, I want! I have no basis for whether they'd be happy together or not, and I don't even know if Melanie swings that way, but I want, so fuck whatever her preferences may or may not be!"
>>
>>29014542
i think the adoption thing was suggested to say as a joke to gregory for the sake of teasing nico
>>
>>29014577
I haven't tried to sabotage anybody's route, myself. I don't know why you would bring that up.
>>
>>29014504
Actually we did kinda help the little prince dude out.

And I'm willing to bet that we'd end up doing exactly the same thing with Nico/Melanie. Not outright pushing them together, but giving them advice if they ask for it.

You go away.
>>
>>29014579
Nicolette also has a route, and yet, as has been stated several times so far, she prefers Melanie over us as an option.

Your statement suggests an absolute that because Melanie has a route, her affections are singularly focused on us - despite the fact that Nicolette stands as blatant evidence to the contrary.
>>
>>29014588
And I never said anything about adoption either, so I don't know why you would bring it up as well.
>>
>>29014585
>>29014571
Nico's interest in Melanie is/was most likely going to play a large part in her route, mainly as a doomed first love. This is a common thing in Visual and Light Novels, especially for tomboyish girls. After she is rejected, she would move on to Reinhold.

That would be unusual, given the characters and set pieces, but it could happen. I'm just pointing out that I've seen this sort of setup before, and how it usually goes down.
>>
>>29014655
A common pattern is also that the protagonist isn't involved with all the girls because he's an idiot, not because of sexual trauma due to childhood rape. Just don't think you should be so quick to make such statements when there's been occasions that don't follow convention.

Nah, man, I mean we roll the first 1, and what follows is a chain-reaction of fuckups where we fall on top of one girl, grab her rack, try to roll off and end up tripping another girl so she ends up sitting on our face, quickly jump to our feet to get her off of us, flailing our arms out to get a hold of something to support ourselves and end up tearing two womens' tops down in the process, resulting in us getting punched and stumbling forward and landing with our face in a girl's jugs, getting shoved away until we bounce back to back into another woman and try to push away from her and end up grabbing her ass, and so on and so forth.

Like a depraved, molesting pinball machine.

It is rare for Matthias to really take initiative in anything... we might as well see how this turns out.

Resuming my previous position against the wall, I glance over at my brother as he steps out into the middle of the hallway, glaring at those gossiping harlots with a look that I haven't seen in years.

Come on, brother... remember that a gentleman doesn't strike women, even if they may not technically be -ladies-.

"You know..." Matthias says, his voice much clearer than usual, "...I've put up with you tramps constantly talking shit about other women who you're jealous of for going on three days now, and I'm sick of it."
"E- excuse me?" one of the women who was insulting Akemi says as Matthias walks up to her.
"You heard what I said." Matthias growls, pointing accusingly in the woman's face.

If you're going to hit her, do it with your words, Matthias.

"A worn-out old bitch like you with a face that's obviously being maintained with nerve paralysis magic has no right to say a goddamned thing about anyone else," Matthias says, pointing to the woman's masklike face.
"H- how dare you..." the woman gasps, obviously not having expected to be called out like this.

"Calling someone else a monster when you're the one who looks like one... you stupid whore, who the hell told you that that shit actually looked good?" Matthias asks.
"Wh- I- You little-" the woman stammers, unable to form a coherent comeback.

Ignoring her, Matthias moves on to the next of the women who were insulting Akemi.

"And you... you're whining about her 'flaunting her good looks' because you're bitter about having yet to find a man before your hair went gray, I bet," my brother says to a woman with black hair.
"I- I have no idea what you're talking about, it's plain as day that my hair is jet-black!" she stammers back, looking suspiciously nervous.
"Don't think that I don't notice those gray roots," Matthias replies. "If you're going to try to cover that shit up, you ought to do a better job of it," he says, pointing to her hairline.

"And you two..." Matthias says as he ignores the woman who he'd just humiliated and walks up to the final two, "...I'll just say those dresses are FAR too tight and your jaundiced skin betrays that you obviously drink far too much... if that wasn't already obvious from the fact that it's only three in the afternoon and you already reek of alcohol."

His tirade finally done with, Matthias returns to my side and sighs as he leans back against the wall... though that outburst just earned the stares of pretty much everyone in the area.

"It's just like I said..." he mumbles under his breath as he glares ar everyone around him... though I'm sure that someone may have wanted to retaliate with their own barbs, my brother seems to have cemented his position as someone who is not to be messed with.

Though I'm sure that now he'll be the source of a few rumors himself...

Mattias certainly doesn't seem to have bardic silver tongue, or at least desire to use it.

Should've both congratulated him on his chivalrous initiative and scolded him for fairly brutish manner in which he carried it out. If a husband of any of those zombies were around, Matthias might have ended up in a duel to the death. How good is he at fighting anyway?

As the other guests look on in shock at my brother's actions, split about half between those who now claim that they were about to do the same thing and others who thought that his words were excessive, I turn to him and offer my hand.

"I myself would have tried to be a bit more... elegant in scolding those women, but I can't say that I wasn't impressed," I say to him.
"This shit's why I can't stand going out to places like this..." he mumbles as he begrudgingly shakes my hand.

As he lets go of my hand, I notice a small child with long, straight black hair approaching. Those clothes are similar to... wait- you mean to tell me that those women were badmouthing Akemi within earshot of her own child!?

Damn it all, now -I'm- getting the urge to tell them off...

"U- umm... mister?" the child says, tugging on Matthias's shirt.
"Wh- huh!?" Matthias stammers, clearly not having notice the child's approach.
"Thanks for defending my Mommy," the child says with a cheerful smile. "My Daddy says to ignore what those ladies say, but I'm happy that you showed them what it feels like to have someone say mean things to -them- for a change."
"Uh... no problem?"

With a deep bow, the child scurries back to his(?) parents as Akemi waves at Matthias, a smile of thanks on her face.

Why do people not want Monique to know him well, anyway? He's not in Marie or Reinhold's circle of friends and this is great opportunity for exposition and drama.

Ah, yes... it makes sense that you wouldn't know who Milien is. Previously, I've only mentioned him in passing, and the last time I've seen him was before we...

...anyways, Milien is the former bodyguard of Princess Marianne, and a former captain of the Royal Guard before that. Though I know the specifics, he suddenly quit his post as her bodyguard and left Granache outright, thus causing the opening for the position that I would have right now if not for-

No, I'm not even going to think about HIM right now.

"Milien, it's been quite some time since I've seen you last," I say, extending my hand to my old acquaintance.
"Yeah, a lot's happened since then," Milien replies, laughing in that way he does.
"So what brings you all the way out here, anyways? Last I'd heard, you left Granache..."
"Yeah, there's a bit of a story behind that," he says, shrugging. "But it has a happy ending, so I suppose I might as well spill."

"So after I quit my old post, I kind of wandered around for a little while, doing a bit of adventuring... I ended up pursuing a big job in Perricone and got -quite- the payday for it," Milien says, giving a thumbs-up gesture.
"I recall you saying that you had quite a bit saved up already," I reply.
"Yeah, the bodyguard gig was such that I didn't actually have to -pay- for anything, so that huge monthly stipend just kind of built up," he says, shrugging.

"So anyways, that little incident ended up doubling my life savings in addition to causing the King of Perricone's brother to recognize how cool a guy I am... one thing led to another, and I got the opportunity to buy myself a nice cushy noble position," Milien laughs.
"...wow," I reply, not even bothering to hide my surprise.
"Yeah, I'm a Lord now," he says as he folds his arms triumphantly. "And not too long after that, I was lucky enough to catch the eye of this lovely lady here..." he says, stepping aside to reveal a -very- cute girl with short black hair, wearing a frilly white and beige dress.

"Umm, pleased to meet you," the girl says, bowing. "Are you friends of my husband?" she asks.
"I don't know that we're close enough to be considered friends," I say, returning her bow, "but we are acquaintances on good terms."
"You wound me, buddy!" Milien says, laughing.
"My name is Monique Gilbeault, and this is my older brother Matthias," I say as I pull him over.

"Uh, hey," Matthias mumbles.
"You were very gallant there," Milien's wife says, smiling at my brother. "I'm sure that you're quite popular with the ladies!"
"I dunno about that, but thanks..." he says as he returns to leaning against the wall.

"This is Josephine Girardot," Milien says as he places his hands on his wife's shoulders. "Better wife than I could have ever asked for!"
"Oh, Milien..." Josephine says, blushing.
"While I was already a Lord when we got married, I took on her last name anyways since it's not like I was attached to the one that I was bestowed to for like five minutes... but yeah, that's our story."

"...oh yeah..." Milien snaps his fingers. "Matthias, was it? Josephine has a few sisters, and a gallant fellow like you would be sure to win them over," he says, winking.
"Oh, yes!" Josephine giggles, clapping her hands together. "If you were ever to visit Perricone some time, I'd be happy to introduce you..."

"Th... that won't be necessary," Matthias mumbles as he does his best not to make eye contact with any of us.
"The offer's still open if you change your mind though," Milien laughs.

That's enough teasing my brother for now... time to get back to the point.

"So the two of you were invited to the Prince's party?" I ask.
"It was actually my father-in-law who got the invite," Milien says, shrugging. "But he passed it onto us as a kind of honeymoon trip, I guess. I have to say, this country's freaking beautiful."
"It certainly is," I reply, nodding in agreement.
"But a royal party and all, I thought it'd be a nice opportunity to see this kind of thing from the perspective of a nobleman for a change."

"And I hear that Princess Marianne's here, so I figured that I ought to see if I could pop by and tell how well-off I am nowadays," Milien says, his laugh decidedly less cheerful this time around.
"C'mon, Milien..." Josephine says, pulling on her husband's arm. "...you said that you'd try and avoid any trouble."
"Yeah, yeah... I guess you have a point."

Pretty sure it was implied that he had some pretty clear intentions for Marianne if nobody was around to stop him.

Think about it from a nobility stance, given that he'd deflower her, he would then try to play on her shame and disgrace and her reputation into coercing her into marrying him because "nobody would want a disgraced and used girl like you."

>>29016584

True, but this was in broad daylight in a hallways.

Which is why i said the farthest he would have gone there would be molestation/assault.
I'm not saying he wouldn't have progressed to rape, but knowing the princess personality she wouldn't have told anyone about the attack unless it was rape, which is why i'm thinking that is the farthest he would have gone was assault/molestation at that very moment(no idea about later on in the day thought).

"If I'm not prying, why exactly did you leave such a nice post the way you did?" I ask.
"Eheheh..." Milien lets out a weary sigh, "...it's not exactly the kind of thing I'd like to say in mixed company, but I guess I'll give you the basic gist since we're buddies."

To be honest, I'm getting kind of a bad feeling... but if he's actually willing to tell me, I doubt it's all that bad.

"Basically, I began to harbor certain feelings for a certain someone," Milien shrugs. "Got turned down, took it pretty bad, and so I said to myself 'fuck it I'm outta here' and that's pretty much it."
"Oh..." I mumble, unable to hide my surprise at hearing that. "...oh my..."
"Everything turned out pretty great for me in the end so it's not like I have any hard feelings, though... can't deny that I kind of want to rub it in if I see them, but Josephine's probably right in that I shouldn't do it."
"Yes, I would have to agree."
"As if relieved that she's talked her husband out of doing something stupid, Josephine smiles at him."

As one who is sworn to serve the royal family of Granache, I'd be duty-bound to step in if Milien caused any kind of trouble... even though THAT PERSON would most likely be there as well.

Duty over personal feelings.

That's me.

Even though I'd love nothing more than to freeze him into a block of ice aside from his head... and then punch him in his stupid face until all of the hatred had finally left my body.

But no.

Duty.

For above all things, I am a GENTLEMAN.

After chatting for a while longer about various things, the time finally comes for the doors to open.

"C'mon, Monique," Matthias grumbles as he lifts the heavy gift that Father prepared, "once they let us in, let's head for the Prince first so that we can drop this thing off. It's too damned heavy to be lugging around for the entire time we're here..."

Think about Marianne's personality for a moment here. This is the girl so concerned with her uncle hating her for wetting the bed as a child, and a total daddy's girl desperate for approval - who had lost all of her friends because of her crippling self-doubts and self-loathing issues preventing her from opening up to how she really felt about them. A girl who even after just being shoved up against the wall didn't want to say anything because she was so ashamed of it all and didn't want to embarass her father.

Do you really think she'd say anything? Do you honestly believe this wouldn't have crippled her to the point of being nearly unable to even resist Milien from that point on? There's no way she'd tell the King because she'd convince herself that it was her own fault.

Only after she was able to get over things, remember. Even then she was temporarily shaken before going into action, and that was primarily because we backed the hell off of her.

Milien would've crushed her spirit before she'd be able to build any kind of resistance.

He got his ass kicked because Nico showed up. I still think that guy is exaggerating but Marie is a very insecure person and it's likely she would react in that way to a certain extent since she couldn't even bring herself to talk about it with her father and let the guy get away just to keep it a secret. She's already been shown to enable him out of shame.
>>
>>29016811
>considering how he ended up out on his ass and is destined to become a small pile of red jelly and all.
Because he was stopped by someone else. Marianne clearly wasn't in any kind of state whatsoever to do fuckall to stop him. She was paralyzed by fear of just what he did to her alone and the implications of what might come next and utterly incapable of doing anything.

Why do you think she nearly murdered the fuck out of us? It's not because she was strong enough to fight him back then, it's out of shame and hatred for how she USED to be, of how easily Milien could've just done whatever the fuck he wanted if nobody had stopped him. We saw the culmination of her frustration and self-loathing as she aimed it directly at someone who she thought was going to be another Milien.

That shit wasn't her temper or any kind of indication of what she could've done to Milien. It was a display of just how much the event fucked her up inside to the point of responding to everything with explosive volatile overreaction.

If anything, you're giving WAY too much credit to a teenage girl with pre-existing self-esteem issues and a history of flat-out denial to cover her own shame and not wanting to somehow make the people she loves the most hate her, even if something isn't her own fault.
>>
Geez, Millien is a fucking cock, if we ever had a chance to kill/embarrass him in front of everybody with little to no negative repercussions then I'd choose it in a heartbeat
>>
Man, I believe in Marianne.
>>
>>29016916
Marie said she could handle him, but we should still stay close by if he tries to talk to her just in case she gives the signal.

Only punch him if he does something bad to her.

I, for one, would not be adverse to simply telling him to eat shit the next time he starts being an ass, which is all the time apparently.
>>
>>29016956
We don't have any reason to be that petty. Just punch the guy if he starts shit.

If he draws his sword then we'll see about something like that.
>>
>>29016952
Considering all we have to go by is Sylvie's rather lacking description of events, not the exact wording no, but we're not exactly going to go ask Marie herself about 'oh hey so what were you specifically feeling as imminent rape crept up on you?'
>>
>>29016966
If he's touching Marie, it gives us grounds to break his wrist for daring to lay a hand on her. The swordarm bit is an added bonus.
>>
>>29016963
You're really good at writing believable characters reacting to situations like this in a realistic manner. And that makes me hate you a little bit. Keep up the good work.
>>
>>29016975
So the entire discussion is based on assumptions and for all we know Marie would have turned him into paste had Nicolette not appeared?
>>
>>29017002
No, everyone knows 100% for sure what Archelon would have had characters do under different circumstances.
>>
>>29016993
I don't think you understand how ridiculously petty it is to give a guy a serious and permanent injury over something like that.

At least be aware that no one knows what he did besides a few people, us not even supposed to be one of them, and reacting like that is going to look very fucking suspicious and overly cruel to everyone.
>>
>>29016998
Ah yeah, you're the anon that helps abuse victims aren't you? Yeah, I was basing my concept of how Marie would react to Milien getting further than he did before on how many rape victims react to the act - there's a TON of self-blame, shame, depression, denial and more that goes on there.

It's incredibly naive to imagine that a girl's immediate reaction to being raped would be to kill the guy that did it - let alone a girl like Marie.

"Very well," I reply. "Let's go straight there after the doors open."
"That's the general idea," Matthias replies.

And naturally, the gates open right at that moment. Though the other people there rush in as fast as they possibly can (I don't see the point, it's not like they're going to be missing anything), my brother and I make a point not to get caught up in the crowd's stupidity.

Taking care that we're not going to end up running into anyone, we calmly enter the hall, look for where Prince Emilio is sitting (who's that standing behind him, his girlfriend? Looks a bit too young to be a bodyguard), and head right there...

...though sadly, we're far from the first to have had the idea ro do so. About fifteen groups of people are in front of us... hopefully, they won't take too long to gloat about the gifts that they've brought.

After all, nothing that they've given him could possibly compare with the Gilbeault family's present.

As Matthias and I take our places in line, the people in front of us turn around... and it's Akemi and her family!

"I see that you had the same idea as us," Akemi says, smiling at us.
"Great minds think alike, I suppose," I reply.
"Well, I'm not sure if I would consider a lot of the people in front of us as being 'great minds,' but I'll take that as a compliment," she says, winking at me.

Ugh, I really should watch my words in the future...

"I suppose I should also thank you for standing up for me eariler," Akemi says to Matthias. "You were -almost- as gallant as my husband here," she says, giggling.
"Only reason I didn't do the same as you was because I don't want to risk making any enemies out here in Marconetti," her husband says, patting their child on the shoulder.

>you should ask them about themselves, showing interest is generally taken as flattery

>>
>>29017002
Not really. I base it on the presented evidence of Marie's character, Milien's displayed personality, actions and behaviour, and how actual victims of abuse react, rather than some idealistic imagining that 'good wins out' and 'bad people get what they deserve.'

The only evidence we have of her character comes from after the abuse, and her long term issues after the fact do not definitively prove that she would not have violently resisted at the time before someone else stepped in.
>>
>>29017105
Her father JUST told us a story about her childhood where she flatout denied having wet the bed because she was terrified that her uncle would hate her. Other tales from her friends seem to collaborate that she's always been an incredible daddy's girl, and has always been very easily embarassed. Her drifting apart from Nico and Sylvie happened years before the abuse happened, and is a direct indication of her inability to speak out about her feelings and troubles, and her constant self-blaming that keeps her from doing anything about her own suffering.

So no, it's not the only evidence that we have.

"Might I ask what country you hail from?" I ask. "My brother and I are from Granache, to the south of here."
"My family and I hail from Kinsen, out to the east," Akemi's husband says, grinning.
"Dear, we don't just 'hail' from there..." Akemi says, turning to her husband.
"Alright, if you insist... I'm actually the Sadaharu, the KING of Kinsen. And the lovely lady whose honor your brother was so kind to defend is my queen, Akemi. As for this little person here..." he says, patting his child on the shoulders, "...this is Masaharu, my son."

Er.

Well.

My brother just defended the honor of the queen of a foreign country. Now I'm even more proud of him than I already was.

"Y- you're the queen of-" Matthias stammers.
"There's no need to be intimidated," Akemi laughs, patting him on the shoulder. "It's not every day that a 'monster' like myself gets defended by a stranger, after all."
"Mommy, you're not a monster!" Masaharu shouts, hugging his mother tight. "You're pretty and nice and way better than all the ugly ladies who said mean things about you!"

Damn it... seeing this scene makes me nostalgic for the days when I was that size and pretended to act as my own mother's knight.

"Y- yes, you shouldn't put yourself down like that..." Matthias stammers, his face becoming flushed.
"Haha! What was your name... Matthias, was it?" Sadaharu asks. "Passionate when defending others, and modest the rest of the time... you're a good kid!"
"U- umm, thank you, your majesty!" Matthias shouts, bowing in that same odd way that Michiko does when she's embarrassed about something.

"And you seem to be familiar with some of our customs, too?" Sadaharu says, a wide grin on his face. "What say you pay us a visit some time? Our country may not be all that big, but we're always happy to welcome men of character such as yourself..."

...dear god, is Matthias about to be knighted or something!?

"D... do it!" I stammer, slapping my brother on the back excitedly. "Didn't you always dream of travelling to the area that Michiko hails from? This is your chance!"
"'Michiko?'" Sadaharu repeats, raising an eyebrow. "You know someone from our part of the world?"
"She's our sister-in-law," I reply. "And Matthias here's always been -quite- interested in the region that she hails from..."
"D- dammit, Monique!" Matthias exclaims, punching me in the shoulder with his free arm.

I'll be damned if I let my brother pass this opportunity up... something like this is like a dream for him, after all... but you do have a point about pushing -too- hard.

"He spends a good deal of his ample free time listening to her stories of her homeland, as well as reading books from that region... not to mention the small tree that he takes care of as if it was his own child..." I say, cutting my brother a side glance.

He may resist the things I suggest, but if it's coming from a third party...

"Wow, you sound like a downright fan," Sadaharu says, smiling at my brother. "ALMOST as much of a fan as King Celestino," he says, laughing.
"Eh?" Matthias says, surprised to have heard that. "The King here is interested in..."
"Oh yes," Akemi replies. "Swords, literature, food... just from his personal interests, our country's seen a boom in business coming from this region."

"We could always used more people, though... since you're a guest here at this party, I take it you're a noble? Are you a swordsman like your brother here?" Sadaharu asks.
"I... I am a member of the nobility, but I'm no good with the sword..." Matthias mumbles. "...Monique got all the talent with that."

"That's fine, swords aren't everything," Sadaharu says, nodding.
"Yes... I've always found magic to be far more interesting," Akemi interjects.
"My brother's always felt the same way," I say, flashing my best smile. "Why, I bet the Royal Library back home would be jealous of his grimoire collection..."
"Oh, so you're a scholar!" Akemi says, clapping her hands together.
"J- just a hobbyist..." he mumbles.

Yes, this is going great. He has their full interest, and he's unable to pull out of the situation. All he needs is a final push...

"While I'm not going to try and poach you from Granache right away, would you mind out hanging out with us while we're here at the party, at least?" Sadaharu asks. "You seem like an interesting enough guy, and I'm sure my wife would appreciate having someone to speak up for her..."
"U- umm..." Matthias mumbles, completely overwhelmed.
"Oh yes, it would be fun to get to know you a bit better!" Akemi giggles. "And Masaharu here could stand to be exposed to at least one person here who isn't a total jerk. Also..."

She then runs up to my brother, quickly whispering something in his ear that I'm unable to make out. Once her words register in his brain, Matthias simply stares at her, her mouth agape.

"Er, what did you..." I ask, a bit worried about my effect that all of this mental stimulation is having on my brothers mental state.
"Nothing bad, I just told him something that I thought he might find interesting," Akemi says, giggling.

She's a married woman and her husband and son are right there, so I'm sure it was nothing lewd.

I certainly HOPE it was nothing lewd.

"Well, it looks like we're next," Sadaharu says, bringing attention to the fact that our little conversation made the wait in line go by in an instant. "C'mon, you two... and Matthias? Give me an answer after you two give your present!" he waves.

As Masaharu and Akemi hurry behind the King of Kinsen, Akemi looks back at Matthias and holds a hand to either side of her head, pointing in the air with both hands.

What the hell is -that- supposed to mean?

He's an introvert and he just got pushed into a lot of social interaction. Don't push him any more, let him cool down, if he wants to talk then be friendly.

>>29017899
>>29017911
>>29017914
She whispered it to him, it's not polite to ask about secrets.

>>29017905
My first guess would be that she's a Kitsune, I am not completely ruling out Dragons or some other supernatural thingy.

We already know she is a kitsune. That doesn't explain the gesture she just did.

I'm guessing he said something about fluffy tails.

Yes... I've pushed him enough for now, pressing my luck any more than I already have would probably result in disaster.

I still want to know what the hell the hand ear thing was all about, though.

After we wait for a little while for Kinsen's royal family to give the Prince his present (from the looks of it, it's the same type of sword that Takamaru-san uses), they step aside and wait for us to have our turn at the giftgiving.

This is going to be GREAT.

As the two of us approach Prince Emilio, I take the lead this time around.

"Good afternoon, Prince Emilio," I say with a deep bow. "And happy birthday."
"Y... yeah, happy birthday," Matthias mumbles.
"Thank you," the Prince replies. "Umm, if you could introduce yourselves so I know who's giving me this gift...?"

Wow, he seems to be about as comfortable in social situations as Matthias is. Considering how bubbly Princess Luciana was when I was speaking with her, I wasn't expecting this at all.

How naive of you, Monique. Matthias is your brother, is he not? And are you not proficient in the social arts?

You are to Luciana as Matthias is to Emilio.

It's a thing in families.

This. I like Fluffy Tail for Fluffy Tail, not for self-centred 'I want'isms. You're as bad as that faggot who wanted to fuck over Nico and Melanie having a shot with one another because he wanted Melanie all to himself.

"My brother here is Matthias Gilbeault, and I am Monique," I say, motioning towards each of us.
"Wait... you're the one who made it to the finals of the swordsmanship in Granache!?" Prince Emilio gasps, his eyes wide with surprise.
"The one and the same," I reply, bowing once again.
"Oh... oh wow..." the Prince says, unable to hide his excitement.

I am... genuinely flattered. Truly.

"U... umm... this right here is my bodyguard Karel," Prince Emilio says, pointing to the girl behind him. "He actually won the tournament over here..."

Wait... "he?" There's no way that the person behind him is a... never mind, I'm sure she has her reasons.

"Nice to meet you," Karel says, bowing. "I've heard about your skills with a rapier, and hearing about how well you did in the tournament was a real inspiration to me."
"I actually use a saber now that my old rapier was- anyways, I thank you for your kind words," I reply, returning her bow.

"Now as for our gift," I begin, "Matthias, if you will?"
"Alright," Matthias replies as he hands the Prince a large wrapped box.

Oh, the anticipation! I can barely hold back my excitement as he tears through the wrapping paper and opens the box...

You do realize that statement didn't suggest inferiority, but the simple fact that you guys are being such massive douchebags about Fluffy Tail being 'Rein-exclusive' that you're making the other waifu douchebags look good in comparison.

Which will lead to them all ganging up on you and sabotaging the fuck out of your Fluffy Tail route, and you'll cry bitch tears and insist it's all jealousy when really it was all your own faggotry that brought it about.

Now shut the fuck up, sit in the corner and enjoy vicarious Fluffy Tail through Matthias.
