I may have mentioned this one before, but eh.
Our party picked up this one kobold fighter, who became very strangely and very strongly infatuated to our sorcerer - a human female. He hung around with her a lot, defended her in battle, stuff like that, although none of us could ever even think what he was thinking of her, and he sure as hell never told her. At one point she received a bunch of flowers and a love letter from a "secret admirer", that actually started a sub-plot several sessions long when she just had to find out who had sent it for her. She didn't.
Anyway, at one point, we have this fight with the BBEG - one he would ultimately survive - and he strikes the sorcerer down and is about to give the finishing blow when, you guessed it, the little kobold guy stepped in. Evilguy mocks him about trying to protect someone even though it'll never be worth it, and, thinking he's not worthy to face him in battle, casually kicks him aside, with enough force so that he ends up crippled for life. The rest of the party intervenes before the BBEG can finish anyone off, though, and he's forced to flee.
So the sorcerer goes off to the poor guy, barely conscious, probably hallucinating. He says: "I know I just small... ugly guy... I know you deserve infinitely more than... I could ever give... so I understand if you not want to... be with me... but if you did, that would be..." Then he passes out.
Well, they're forced to leave him behind, for quite obvious reasons, but she promises him she'll come back, once the world is saved. Sadly, she can't keep good of that promise, because she ends up being killed by the baddie.
We're currently on a quest to get back alive to the guy to break him the news. We're fucking not going to fail if we have to go through the Nine Hells.
