You are Reinhold, master swordsman and victor of the Royal Swordsmanship Tournament. The King was so impressed with your skill, he personally requested that you be transferred out of the army and into the Royal Guard! Not bad for an orphan who was raised in a brothel in a poor fishing village.

The only issue at this point is your assignment... you've been charged to be the personal guard of the King's only daughter Marianne. While she is the vision of loveliness that you'd expect from a Princess, her personality is... well... she seems to have some issues.

After sharing a dance with Luciana (that was a bit more risque than you intended), you ran into her mother and baby sister... you can certainly see how they're related to Gregory now.


>Congratulations, you are now a mangy DOG!
>Though dogs are loyal, they're not all that smart...
>The Princess now considers you to be her friend!
>But while dogs are man's best friend, they still don't count as people.

"It's a pleasure to meet you, Your Majesty," you say as you do your best bow.

She -is- the Queen, after all. Best to make a good first impression.

"Likewise, Mr..." Lisette says, turning to Luciana.
"Mother, this is Reinhold," Luciana replies. "He's Marianne's bodyguard."
"So the boy who you so fancy and danced so suggestively with is Marianne's bodyguard..." the Queen says with a bemused smile. "Though I have to admit that I wasn't expecting the first boy who you expressed actual interest in past teasing to be a commoner... no offense intended, Reinhold."

Ouch. The truth hurts.

"A- ACTUALLY, Mother, Reinhold here isn't -just- some commoner..." Luciana says as she crosses her arms confidently...

You know where this is going.

We are of common birth, that is true. We were only just adopted into the Escenwald line.

Though if she doesn't mention the adopted part bring it up ourself.

Something like this. We're fundamentally a commoner in outlook, so I guess let her say it, but note that we're not really NOBLE noble.
>>

>let her say it, it's not like it's a secret
Make sure that Luciana doesn't make it seem like more than it is though.

>>29184975
He always takes 20-30 minutes per update.
>>
>>29184975
One fears...
>>
No sense in stopping Luciana from saying it, it's not like her mother won't find out eventually anyways... though you do find yourself cringing a bit out of fear that she'll overplay the situation.

"...he's the adopted son of Volker Eschenwald!" Luciana boasts. "And Agnes Eschenwald actually bothered to attend the party -just- to see Reinhold and his sister!"

Well.

While nothing that she just said was untrue, it is kind of embarrassing to be built up as some kind of important guy like this...

"...so you're VOLKER'S..." Lisette gasps as she repositions the squirming baby in her arms. "He was one of Gregory's best friends, you know... but I had no idea that he even had any interest in adopting children..."

Yeah, that would make sense. Volker was friends with Gregory, so of course his sister would have known him as well.

>[1/?]
>>
>>29184975
Archelon is calls your phone after being missing for three days. Out of worry you called the cops, so they're here tracing the call. As you keep him talking, you learn something startling. The call is coming from within your house!
>>
So... which girl is most likely to snap and go full Yandere first?
My money is on Nico. She seems the most stable. Seems.
>>
>>29185027
I'd say Luci or Sylvie.
>>
>>29185027

Sylvie
>>
>>29185027
I'm half expecting Sylvie to kill us with an axe or something and then off herself.
>>
>>29185027
Does Monique count? I think he does
Or Spinelle
>>
>>29185027
Meido. It's always the quiet ones - the ones you're never watching that decide to grab your attention in the most direct and volatile way.
>>
>>29185062
>axe
that's a funny way of spelling FIST
>>
>>29185089
she's going to take our dance with her WAY too seriously
>>
>>29185089
Sounds right. Which is why we need Nico to wingman her for us.
>>
>>29185027
Obviously Luciana

Dat bitch mad cold
>>
>>29185076
I'd count Monique, he just needs that final push.

Like insulting King Celestino's sister-in-law oh wait...
>>
Remind me, why didn't we dance with the ara ara last thread? It would have been the polite thing to do.
>>
>>29185260

because NOPE
>>
>>29185046
What do we do if they both snap?
>>29185260
she scares Reinhold, it may not have ended well.
>>
>>29185260
muh trauma
>>
>>29185142
Cries herself to sleep because she thinks we think her heartless murder mode is not attractive and or off putting.

Finds out we actually gave no fucks about her ice cold cunning princess mode, and are ourselves ice cold.

Decides to embrace her inner murder boner more fully to win our heart.
>>
>>29185260
we were mid way to luci and had just admitted that to her. i could see us booking a dance for later but we already told her we were in the middle of something
>>
>>29185260
because she is not a nice lady
>>
>>29185287
Leave them to kill each other and hook up with someone else.
>>
>>29185027
I could see Luci going that route if we string her along over much. Mah penis can't wait.
>>
>>29185303
Exactly. Best girl.
>>
>>29185260
Sexually aggressively flirtatious older woman. Reinhold couldn't nope out of that fast enough.

"Yeah, he died before anything was made official," you say. "Both myself and my sister had it pretty hard as a result, but things are going pretty well for both of us right now."
"Going pretty well for Luciana too..." Lisette replies as she makes an accusing glance at her daughter. "I trust that you didn't happen to -orchestrate- any of this good fortune?"

"Just through a stroke of luck," Luciana giggles. "I can assure you that I had no idea of his parentage when he first struck my fancy," she says, shrugging.
"Of -course- you didn't." Lisette replies. But if he's anything like Volker was, then I'm sure that your father wouldn't mind accepting him as a potential suitor..." she says, looking you over.
"Oh, you think so?" she says with a sly grin. "I hadn't even considered that..."

Why are we hitting all the flags for the Luciana route?
>>
>>29185364
Most accurate and concise explanation ever. Well said Anon, well said!
>>
>>29185348
God its all so pointless because no one will ever decide on a gril. Reinholdt might as well be gay.
>>
>>29185390
Don't ask me.
>>
>>29185390
Because a Lucianna is fine too.
>>
>>29185376
She got too excited while revealing her /just as planned/.
>>
>>29185390
Because sympathy.

It's why we were hitting all the flags for Marie's route before after seeing her cry when Luci left.
>>
>>29185348
It begins...and we still have Sylvie and Meido to dance with tonight. To say nothing of keeping our eye on our Tsun Tsun charge.


...poor Nico. She'll have to watch her two crushes dancing with one another.
>>
>>29185348
>"Oh, you think so?" she says with a sly grin. "I hadn't even considered that..."
I don't have an appropriate reaction handy for this level of bullshit.
>>
>>29185348
CODE RED

SHUT IT DOWN
>>
>>29185390
>>29185427
>>29185418
Because the romantic plot needs development. Doesn't mean necessarily that Reinhold will have to go with Luciana.
>>
>>29185390
I will call complete and utter bullshit if people are gonna try and skip out on the other dances.
>>
>>29185027
Nico: it would take a lot of push to turn her yandere. not impossible but not easy either.
Sylvie: very easy! half way there in my view. she loves Reinhold, he isn't 100% into her. just a bit more and watch the fuse get lit.
Marienna: She's a Tundere, not a Yandere.just not seeing it.
Forgotten Maido: has the under pinnings for Yandere-ness, but lacks the love. but it's possable.
Luci: i can see her being yandere, but again, it would take some pushing to become one. not an easy goal.
>>
>>29185438
>...poor Nico. She'll have to watch her two crushes dancing with one another.
Maybe that'll be the nudge she needs to get off her ass & try to enjoy something about this other than the food.
>>
>>29185315
But what if they team up, like some kind of crazy buddy cop comedy wherein they hunt us down and skin us?
>>
>>29185438
I know. Then again would she find it heart breaking or arousing I wonder?
>>
>>29185462

Thats not likely to happen.

But keeping a respectful distance from luci might be on the cards.
>>
>>29185453
shh..
let it happen
>>
>>29185348
I WOULDN'T DREAM OF MARRYING SOMEONE SO FAR FROM THE LINE OF SUCCESSION YOUR MAJESTY.
WE CAN BE FRIENDS THOUGH.
>>
>>29185410
Actually, I am asking you.

Most of this feels forced and way too convenient. The pacing is all fucked and it's like any inch we give Luci she takes a fucking mile with it. It's like we literally have to be a jerk to her to avoid this.
>>
>>29185492
Nonsense, we need to go back on the true hill of swords route.
>>
>>29185469
Luci is considered worse than Sylvie since she has been shown to already kill people and has fallen for reinhold after knowing him for less than a week.
>>
>>29185410
do we really need this bullshit cant we just be sword monk like we planed please Who really wants to have a women? we got magic to learn and swording to practice. we ain't got time for that girl stuff
>>
>>29185489
>luci

Don't you mean Meido? We aren't dancing with Luci again in all likelihood.
>>
>>29185481
Knowing Nico she might harbor a moment of lewd watching Rein and Meido dance.
>>
>>29185462
>people are gonna try and skip out on the other dances.

i wouldn't skip the chance on a pseudo harem dude.
>>
>>29185520
You mean it's exactly how she planned?
>>
>>29185527
Less than a week? More like less than a day.

>>29185534
I like the way you think.
>>
>>29185410
Hey Arch! a while ago you told us how the other girls would react if we accidently grabbed their peaches. now then, if the girls could grope Reinhold's butt and get away with it. would they? and how well would they feel him up?
>>
>>29185538
No.
>>
>>29185455

Honestly this, for me. We've been waifuing for months, which is fine, but it's just nice for something to actually happen. Not saying we're locked in or anything, but the whole, "huh? what do you mean?" routine was getting tired.
>>
>>29185520
>Implying
Some girls are like that hombre
You gotta play it smooth and know when to press it or not.
>>
>>29185538
And so it begins the bullshitting in avoiding all the other dances.
>>
>>29185527
You think Sylvie hasn't killed men and monsters with both her magic and her bare hands?
>>
And here we go again!
>>
>>29185348
>[3/3]

Blatant lie, Luciana. You know you can do better than that.

"Oh yeah, and his sister happens to be Marius Lanzmann's wife!" Luciana says.
"...really?" Lisette raises an eyebrow on surprise. "That bubbly girl is your sister?"
"Bubbly?" you repeat. "...heh, I guess she kind of is..." you say with a nervous chuckle. "Yeah, she's my sister.
"I guess that's another point for you, then..." she laughs. "While she seems to be a bit, umm, -excitable-, she's a sweet girl."

"...anyways, I'm going to go and make sure that Elena's not harassing Gregory too much... what about you two? Going to parade around your obvious attraction to each other some more? Maybe make a few mortal enemies in the process?"

>how do you respond?
>>
>>29185527
Technically she only shanked a dude. Takamaru was the one ending the lives. And it was still hardly fault-able. You're playing it off like she was eating babies or something.

>and has fallen for reinhold after knowing him for less than a week
Reminds me of Sylvie. Except she was nearly declaring us her only true wuvvv within like minutes of knowing us.
>>
>>29185541
Yeah, we honor our dance card. Tonight is for dances, figuring out our 4th dimensional love hexagram can be done...later?

How does this thing even break down;!it feels like it would benefit from a Smallville RPG character relationship board.
>>
>>29185575
I was saying we dance with her but don't dance inappropriately close to her. Where'd you get the skip dance idea?
>>
>>29185563
Reinhold is pure innocent child
>>29185539
Oh my god we're going to NTR Nico
>>
>>29185583
Monsters yes, human people no.
Since she doesn't have a job that includes killing people.
>>
>>29185583
Pretty sure Arch verified that she hadn't.

Of the Granache group I think it was just Reinhold & Monique that had actually killed someone before.
>>
>>29185605
"Actually, if you have time, I know Marianne was looking forward to meeting Chiara."
>>
>>29185527
she wouldn't be pycho about it, just rather methodical about it and she can use the strings that come with her birth right too.
>>29185551
ALL the girls practicly fell for him as soon as they saw him.
>>
>>29185390
Because shes easy.
>>
>>29185560
Rana would do it for kicks, just to see Reinhold's reaction.
Luciana would do it if she thought she could get away with it.

None of the other girls would be so bold, though.
>>
>>29185605
"Actually, I promised another dance with a friend of mine and I know Marianne wanted to see Chiara."

This is usually the part when the forever alone fags come out and ruin everything like with Sylvie.
>>
>>29185605
"To be honest, I didn't quite enjoy the attention we got while we were dancing. It did feel a bit hostile, like you said.

"Perhaps Princess Marianne would like to meet you, Your Highness?"

Luci is using us to get dat prestige, nothing more than a heartless fox.

The only true, innocent love is that of everlasting rivalry with Monique.
>>
>>29185462
>>29185541
Basically this

My attitude and I would guess a lot of other people's attitude is a psuedo-harem mindset.
We're not blind to Arch's comments on the idea, we're simply playing our cards close to our chest.
More data needed before committing to a path, so we sample all we can while we can.
Opinions change and grow, for example maidWHO and that I personally dislike Luci less and less over time(not over the brutality though as Rein is just as brutal in the same circumstance and he's not a hypocrite).
We've also seen how most characters have expressed their emotions towards Rein; hidden, beta; embarrassed etc.

what? he's pushing his brother to leave but considering we just broke his head after snatching the luci route out from under him after punching him in the face in front of his men after humiliating him in the tournament after breaking his heirloom sword i'd say he's invested in us

>>29185996
Regardless of what it was supposed to be it was still shit in the end.
>>
>>29185949
Not really. He's invested in re-establishing his reputation and given that we keep fucking that up for him, and that he's going to take Mari's ex-bodyguard's side in the inevitable conflict, I don't think he's going to be able to do that if he stays close to home. Dude seems the type to cut his loses after awhile.
>>
>>29185999
This whole party has been horrible to be honest.
I'm hoping that arch brings us back home.and leaves Luci in her own kingdom.
>>
>>29185955
I wholeheartedly agree that treating it too much like a VN leads to and has led to unfortunate choices, but sweeping statements like that aren't going to help anyone. If you'll remember, we had maybe a hundred thousand arguments about how anime this quest was since the beginning. People who actively work to spite other players need to stop, and people who are basing their logic on VN could tone it down in my opinion, but I'm sure there are people who have found this quest relatively recently who are contributing and enjoying it.
>>
>>29185970
shit tier tier system would not use
>>29185999
The main game here is relationship building and socialization so I don't really see your argument.

I mean we can do other stuff but in the end it's all about how we handle our relationships with errybody. Female/male withstanding
>>
>>29185996
Yeah, I misread it as "Marianne" not Monique. My bad
>>
>>29185999
>>29186023
I understand being against waifu wars, and related bs, but is a romantic subplot bad, especially in a VN quest??
>>
>>29186023
I mean it's basically been waifu holiday which isn't that good.

But back home it was basically 'Medieval fantasy highschool slice of life also I'm a bodyguard or something apparently™'
>>
>>29186037
I mean, I'm fine with the characters themselves, but all the fucking arguments about which of them is the best or which is actually a total cunt and so on are really getting ridiculous.
>>
>>29186043
yes.

i want this VN to be a healing one
>>
>>29186068
So are meta discussions about waifu wars.
>>
>>29186023
I liked the family bonding with Marianne parts and meeting Milien. Those threads were fun.

I'm actually beginning to want to pick Marie for a waifu simply because she's just the most mellow option,player opinion wise. Everyone seems to know how to treat her and most of the waifuers just blend in. She feels the most natural from a meta and IC perspective.
>>
>>29186043
It's pretty much THE plot.
If you're not here for that then why have you read this far?

Though I assume shit will get real and things will go down sooner or later, so there's always that.
>>29186068
We gotta talk about something, and everything else is just shitposting.
>>
>>29186043
Clearly they don't find it believable that someone as young and impovrised as Reinhold (even with the BS family connections) would be considered a valid suitor for any of the girls. Even the mediocre could do better without trying.
>>
>>29186070
So basically you Reinhold not to heal from his traumas? Because if he becomes ascetic and completely denies any romance it'll just be a continuation of his trauma.
>>
>>29185560
What was the girls reactions if w did by accident?
>>
>>29186086
>Though I assume shit will get real and things will go down sooner or later
People who keep assuming this are really annoying to me since they over react to any situation thinking something is gonna happen.
>>
>>29186070
this is not Princess Guard Quest Alternative.
>>
>>29186043
yes, because in quest threads, romantic subplots have a bad habit of turning, for lack of a better phrase, cancerous - and completely devouring plot time, something we're already having issues with.

On that same note: every fucking quest turns into shitty hamfisted romance quest sooner or later, stop trying to force it.
>>
>>29186103
Not good.
>>
>>29186070
So we must flee any attempt to overcome the emotional trauma of our past.mmakes sense.
>>
>>29186094
nigger what
have you been paying attention at all?
>>29186077
Yeah but at the same time I feel like we're too guided in that direction. I want to stray from the path and not take the obvious, most relevant choice like we normally do.
>>
>>29186103
All you need to know is that best girl Rana would grab our ass right back and give a friendly squeeze.
>>
>>29186086
I didn't say I'm not, I think you don't understand what I did there.
>>
>>29186077
Personally I don't know why I'm still here.
Not meant as an insult, there is something that definitely keeps me here; I'm just unaware of what it actually is.
At the moment I'm fairly resentful towards the fact that we're pretty much the most unnecessary bodyguard in imagination.
>>
>>29186125
>Yeah but at the same time I feel like we're too guided in that direction. I want to stray from the path and not take the obvious, most relevant choice like we normally do.
That's just as dumb as the people who want to pick her for being the true route.
>>
>>29185769
Which tells me she is decisive and knows how shit works. I gladly ship both princess.
>>
>>29185796
Not that anon, but I see Luciana as a "caged bird" archetype. Think Yukiko from Persona 4 if you've played/watched it. She's bound by her obligations as a princess, seeing as she was at one point resigned to the fact that she was going to be married off for political reasons, and that as much as she would want to go off adventuring, she would never abandon her duties. But she was always looking for a way out - for her prince to come and take her away from all the political bullshit she has to deal with.

Enter Reinhold. Now I'm not saying she's just using us to get away from everything - far from it. There's an honest attraction on her part; considering the nobles we've met seen and heard, we're probably the most genuine and nicest person she's ever met. The gallantry and good looks don't hurt either. But I have a feeling that even if it's subconsciously, there's more to it than just love for her.

Or I might be completely off base and should go to sleep.
>>
>>29186109
I'm not worried about it, but it's inevitable that SOMETHING significant will happen, probably multiple happenings actually, to move along the plot in different directions. Whatever those may be is irrelevant, roll with whatever I guess.
>>29186131
I wasn't meaning you, that was a question directed towards the anti-waifu fags or whatever
>>
>>29186097
he was talking about an entirely different kind of healing.
>>
>>29186126

>scornful and dismissive towards 'lesser' humans

>>
>>29186125
>have you been paying attention at all
To the waifu-wars and romance-o'-no arguments? Of course not. I'm just bored waiting for the next post and felt like lobbing a tomatoe or two on both sides of the mix since this brouhaha was already in motion. That a problem?
>>
Let's all just calm down a little bit. Tensions are flaring again, and we don't want a repeat of the great clusfterfuck of the 6th.
>>
>>29186153

No, that makes perfect sense. At the same time, the fact that she's willing to go after what she wants (subconsciously or otherwise) makes me like her more.
>>
>>29186142
More than that is we really haven't developed the relationship with her enough to put all the chips in.

Right now, our best friends are still sylvie and nico, with Citrine as bro tier.

And it's more than not doing the 'true' route, but I don't want to just take the obvious quest title character and be done with it.
>>
>>29186153
Very well said.
>>
Now that I'm thinking about it again, I can't wait for the mortification supernova that is going to come from an eventual in-character realization that one of Reinhold's first subconscious thoughts when going through Luciana-is-attractive warning signs was how she smelled the same as Marianne.

Extra bonus points if at some future point Reinhold ashamedly confesses that thought to Marianne, beginning an infinite embarrassment feedback loop.
>>
>>29186192
>And it's more than not doing the 'true' route, but I don't want to just take the obvious quest title character and be done with it.

That's literally the same thing just on the other spectrum. People want to pick her because she's the obvious, you don't because she's the obvious choice.
>>
>>29186192
This is why i want us to go for Rana,Nico, or Sylvie.
>>
>>29186192
>Citrine as bro tier
...sis tier.
>>
>>29186215

Marie is Rein's safety anchor at this point. Haha.
>>
>>29186169
I'm just saying that Granache-wise, the girls are open to being with whomever they like.
The whole social standing argument doesn't work, even less so because of the volker thing.

I don't feel locking a route like that or something is necessary now though, or ever even. Let's just let things develop as they may.

"Actually... if you have time, I know that Princess Marianne was looking forward to meeting Princess Chiara here," you say to the Queen.
"BAA!" Chiara shouts, seemingly reacting as if she was called.
"Oh, she was?" Lisette replies, a bit surprised. "Considering how moody she is, I was thinking that she'd want to stay as far away from Chiara as possible...
"Not at all!" Luciana interjects. "Marianne absolutely ADORES babies!"
"...really?"

"Yeah, she definitely does," you say, unable to keep from smiling a bit as you remember her reaction to the Wilhelms' new baby."
"If you say so, I don't see why not," Lisette says as she adjusts the baby in her arms. "I hope she doesn't decide that the poor girl is an enemy, though..."

Checking on Marianne, she and her father are still talking with... Alberto was it? In any event, it might not be a bad idea to go and tell her that the baby's finally down here.

She was always considered one of, if not the most capable of Celestino's children if I remember right. She just happens to be near the end of the line of succession, so she doesn't get much chance to put her skills to use.

that's the point. It's kind of like... the violation of the act I suppose? Coupled with the threat of potential death, the thought becomes irresistible to me.
>>
>>29186675
That sounds unlikely.
>>
>>29186241
Sylvie, eh? I'll give it a shot.

First off, as people have noted, we're her first crush. First loves have a tendency to burn really hot. I mean, everyone remembers their first real loves. That is the case for Sylvie, but there's more to it than that. I think one of the main things is is that we make her feel needed.

First, look at the people around her: Vincent, Gregory, Arnaud, Nikolaus, Therri, Nico, Arianne, and even Marianne; they can all pretty much handle themselves. For one reason or another, she can never really help any of them. But us? We asked her to teach us. The handsome young swordsman, who won the tournament and earned the right to be Princess's bodyguard, the same person who beat her best friend, the Captain of the Royal Guard, in a spar. We needed her to teach us magic.

Yes, we had no one else we could really ask to teach us magic at the time, and we barely knew her when we asked. But remember how she went into it with gusto. Vincent even commented on how excited she was to start teaching us what she could.

In a world surrounded by those monsters, we made her feel needed in a way that was completely foreign to her. And for a shy quiet girl like Sylvie, that is probably one hell of a drug.
>>

"I don't want to hold you up, so I'll go and tell the Princess that you're here," you say to thw Queen.
"Very well," Lisette nods. "Come along Luciana, let's go and visit your uncle." she says as she pulls her eldest daughter along with her free hand.
"Eh-" Luciana stammers as she tries (and fails) to shake her mother off. "I'll go along with Mr. Reinhold, we'll meet you over there..."

"Now, now..." Lisette says, smiling at her daughter in a decidedly unfriendly manner. "You don't want to seem too eager... that only serves to scare boys away."

Ignoring her daughter's protests, the Queen forcibly drags Luciana away. ...yeah, you can definitely tell that she and Gregory are siblings.

>tfw when we will crush her spirit once we absolutely turn her down

what are you guys doing? This is not being nice, good, grateful or whatever.

I'm for pursuing Marie myself but the way you are acting, you know that soon even her father will acknowledge us. When that happens we either go for her or break her heart completely. There will be no delaying like with Sylvie, Lucy (her father specifically) simply does not have time.
Also consider that she is Marie's friend If we break her heart, we will also fuck up relationship with Marie.

basically, stop chasing all the fucking rabbits at once.

>>29186743
Actually, it's doable. We're probably the only person that she'd feel comfortable even attempting to be equals with. Everyone else is way too far ahead. It's all about building confidence. Not interfering in her fight with Nikolaus and cheering her on was a good step.

Agreed. I'm a fan of Marie, but stringing Luci along like this is just dickish. We really need to pick someone. It'd be nice if it was Marie, but so long as no one goes full meltdown I'm good with whatever.

And he's saying that being a gigantic tease who fucks around until because it's not like a route lock is dumb.

Literally every girl is in that scenario, that's why we should strive to make them all happy, and find their own happiness.

Then Reinhold can sit and watch them live their lives happy whilst he drinks alone and cries at night cuddling his sword.
>>
>>29186823
So you want to lock in the hate instead of the love. Interesting. Well, getting expelled from our region probably opens up some less savory routes, so that could be interesting.

We are never, ever going to pick a waifu unless Arch has one of them take the initiative, which would cause a shitstorm.

Not Nico. Not Rana or Carol or Meido or any of the minor characters either.

That's literally every girl, though.

>>29186801
I honestly don't want to go after Marie, because unless she makes the first move, than it just feels like we'd be doing the same thing as Asshole Guard. And even then it just feels unprofessional and somewhat irresponsible to fall for someone when it is our job to give our life for them if necessary.

Nico is dealing with trying to be a girl in a man's world.
And she likes meido, which is even more delicate of a matter.

Pushing that little bit of embarrassment to the back of your mind, you let out a long sigh and make your way towards the Princess and her father. After a bit of weaving around people and dodging another attempted groping (fortunately, you actually saw the hand coming this time), you make it to where they're standing...

"...so both Gregory -and- Vincent were pissed at this guy, and it was all I could do to keep them from killing him right there on the spot... Arnaud wasn't any help either, since I could see that he was going his best to keep from doing the same," Thierri sighs. "And just as I was tempted to just bop them both in their heads to make them calm down..."

Seeing you approach, Thierri starts waving his arm excitedly.

"Oh hey, it's Reinhold!" Thierri laughs. "Hey Alberto, this is Marianne's bodyguard!"
"Oh, so -this- is the guy..." Alberto(?) says as he turns to you. "I'm Luciana's brother Alberto, it's nice to meet you."
"Likewise," you say, bowing.

"What brings you over here?" Thierri asks. "Wanted to ask Marianne for a dance?" he laughs.
"I've danced with him -far- more than I'd ever like to, thank you very much," Marianne sighs.

Problem with Luciana is if we hook up with her, then what? We've got her, presumably as a second daughter she comes to Granache to live with us and hang with Marianne, and everyone lives happily ever after and the quest is over.

Alright, speaking purely rationally there are three main camps:
Luciana, Marie and Sylvie.
of these three Reinhold seems attracted most to Marie, followed by Luci, and Sylvie has a strong fan following.

Can we all agree that - realistically speaking - it would benefit everyone to eliminate the others from the running? For the sake of us and the individual girls.

it is not as bad as it is for Lucy.
No one will force Sylvie, Nico, Marie etc marry someone who they don't love. Lucy does not have such privilege.

To give some shitty example to show what we are doing:
this is not unlike going to a dungeon, finding a kidnapped prisoner who had been kept as a slave for years. Acting like a knight in shining armor, being nice friendly feeding them etc and the simply leaving them to rot forever.

Sure, MAYBE someone else will come and save them before they die but considering how much time it took for the first one it is very unlikely.

The other girls will cry and move on with their life, pursue other romantic notions later at their own pace. Lucy is going to be married of to someone.


So please, unless we make in character decision to pursue her, stop with this shit.
This also applies to other girls.

You what. Oh lordy. How meta is that.

I refer to their interactions. They're the most natural and rein and marie are very comfortable with each other.

Look at the pre-party interaction. Both rein and marie are victims of sexual abuse. She was able to react like a normal girl instead of flipping out and Reinhold thought NOTHING of being half-naked infront of her.

I cannot understate how big an indicator that is.
>>
>>29187151
I think we leveled too quickly and now Arch is stalling to get more time in with the other girls and stuff.

Pacing seems to be a problem of his.
>>
>>29187107
Except for the personality match. She doesn't accept him as a person because of her issues. She's slowly realizing that Reinhold is a person and when she fully does she'll understand that she wants more than just friendship with him.

Right now our relationship with Luciana is in the exact same spot it was with Sylvie towards the beginning of the quest. Everyone is on the band wagon right now but it's just a matter of time before TG turns on her like a pack of wild dogs just like they did the young mage.
>>
>>29187173
Wait, Rein was half-naked in front of her?
>>
>>29187173
Reinhold has been the happiest in company of Sylvie and Nico, don't twist it like he came to the princess for any reason other than his job.

It may be different now, but the whole reason he's natural with the princess is because he HAS TO, it's his fucking job. If anything, it's the most forced of the interactions.
>>
>>29187181
I don't see a pacing problem. I mean, Luciana's pacing is fucked but that's kind of part of her personality.

That's not a "route". Brodom isn't mutually exclusive so we can do that along with any of the girls.

We can play it cool now that we've got our footing.

What have we really done to make her fall for us, though? We've gone out of our way to be nice to her, yes, but love is more complicated than that.

It's fine. Filthy animals are allowed to wander around unclothed.
>>
>>29187208
Dude, he confides in the princess regularly and pretty much treats her like a member of his family. We just saw that the last several threads.

It isn't bro times and goofing off like it is with those two but they're clearly comfortable around each other.
>>
>>29187218
>implying he has that
He's an actual functional swordsman. They're going to be covered by at least a quarter inch of fat, which is enough to hide definition, and probably won't be super defined anyway, because that's a body-building thing.
>>
>>29187242

What have we done for Marie? More than we've done for them.
>>
>>29187208
>the whole reason he's natural with the princess is because he HAS TO, it's his fucking job

How forced is it if the only person hes ever come completely clean about his history with is marianne.

>>29187250
That comfort is more a sign of not having passionate feelings at all, it's platonic right now.

And the only time he confides is her is when he had misstep like with the dance fiasco.
>>29187278
Reinhold is clearly a nice guy, so it's natural that he tries to help someone in who is obviously mixed up. Plus it makes his job easier, i'm not saying it's not a good relationship, but as of now it is not definitive love.

Are you stupid? When Marie asked about Citrine, he gave her the true story. When he told her about Grandma, he gave her the entire story.

>>
>>29187317
And why not? It's not like any of his training builds fat and he's always been described as slender

So a workout that builds muscle, especially core muscles which are essential for combat, and a distinct lack of body fat in general sounds like ab city to me.

"Well, there goes that idea..." you say, snapping your fingers in a dejected manner. "...anyways, I came here to tell the Princess Marianne that the Queen's showed up with her baby and I thought that she might like to see her."

The second you mention the baby, Marianne's face lights up.

"Oh, s- so she's finally here? Well, I guess I should probably greet them at the very least..."
"Just look at her," Thierri laughs as he points to his daughter. "Trying to pretend like she's not excited to play with a real-life baby..."
"I- it's not like that, Father!" she stammers in a futile attempt to play it off like what he just said is somehow not completely true.

>[1/2]

>>29187350
Why wouldn't he tell her of obvious, relevant things?

It's not indicative of any higher relationship than trust, which I think he gives pretty freely around considering he accepted Gramma's story right then and there in the graveyard.
>>
>>29187367
Okay, look. You're obviously being willfully ignorant at this point. We have actively gone out of our way to address her insecurities and personal problems. We gave her a signal to use at this dance even though we didn't need to, we arranged so she could get back on speaking terms with her friends again through that tea party, and we consistently try to get her to open up and make her happy on a day-to-day basis.

Look at this entire party. We've done everything we could to make it something enjoyable for her and we've barely talked to anyone else for long periods of time outside of our family and that was with her
>>
>>29187350
He can tell her because she's emotionally safe. There's no lasting repercussion to her knowing and she isn't the type to spread it around.

Also, we would tell any of the others, in full, if they asked, so I just dont see you your point stands.

Where did I say that?

The point I was making is that Reinhold does a lot more for Marie and saying how that doesn't equate to something leading to romance when three other characters fell for Rein for less is stupid.

This isn't some meant to be shit. This is me telling you that there is no reason why Marie wouldn't be interested in Rein like the other girls based on what Rein has done for them.
>>
>>29187431
And you're willfully ignorant that he's doing that because he's a nice guy. Or rather, /tg/ likes to be nice. Not that that's a bad thing.

The only reason we take special consideration into it is because again, it helps make the job easier, and we are by nature spending most of our time around her, so, also naturally, would have more understanding on her situation.

If we spent more time with Luci, like we were going to until interrupted, i'm sure ray ray would have been his usual good self.

Regardless, his argument is dumb and has no purpose until we get a good feel for what is best for everybody and ourself.

Because we're her friend and bodyguard. A subtle movement to indicate danger or discomfort to her guardian is not a rare thing.

>we arranged so she could get back on speaking terms with her friends again through that tea party
Because they are all our friends, and getting them back together was pretty much going to happen sooner or later.

"I suggest that you don't get your hopes up to much, Marianne..." Alberto shrugs. "While she -is- completely adorable, Chiara's like, REALLY mean. She even hits our father."
"I suppose that means that all three of Lisette's daughters are feisty," the King says with a chuckle.
"Yet somehow my little brother's somehow the timid one," Alberto says with a wistful smile. "...anyways, I just thought that I should warn you about my baby sister's violent tendencies."

"Er, thank you, I guess?" Marianne replies. "Since you're the one who knows where they are, I suppose that you can lead the way," she says, turning to you.
"No problem," you reply.
"Have fun," Alberto says with a chuckle. "Try not to let her give you a black eye like she did to Giancarlo that one time..."

On females you're KINDA right.

I'm thinking it's just another misarchivist or the Breaker guy just decided this was his thing now. The guy misarchiving Breaker very clearly knew what was going on in the quest and had a personal vendetta.

Of course you can. But it's really not optimal for health.

On men, we're talking single digits of percent bodyfat. The threshold is like, 6-8 in most cases. Anything below 11 is liable to cause lessened functional muscle formation and can result in minor starvation symptoms.

swordsman wins royal sword tournament and becomes princess's new bodyguard. lots of daily life of royal folk events unfold similar to a VN (QM has stated that there will be no harem route), we got through the first month of prologue and are now attending fancy noble party in neighboring country where shit may or may not go down (had to deal with would be kidnappers the day before)

He was asking about Breaker Quest, anon.

guy turned to a girl through magic, becomes a magical girl to get his penis back, /tg/ picked a class that if uses too much magic he can develop lewd thoughts that leads to lewd situations.

>>29187967
He linked to a post about breaker quest and asked about it.
>>
"You seem to be having more fun at this party than I'd expected," you say to Marianne as you walk.
"And you seem to have had more fun dancing with Luciana than -I- had expected," Marianne bites back. "Though I'm not sure how well her father would have responded had he seen your little performance..." she says with an amused smile.

...you weren't expecting HER to have been keeping tabs on YOU as well...

"...anyways," Marianne sighs, "I can't say that I'm enjoying the -party- itself, but I do appreciate being able to spend some time with my father like this," she says as she looks back at him.
"Yeah, he seems to be enjoying himself there," you reply.
"Yes... those two always got along rather well. Alberto enjoys Father's stories, and Father enjoys having an appreciative audience."

Judging from how into his story the King seems to be, you can definitely see that.

I just want to point out that this doesn't sound similar to BFQ at all. That was about being a single mom going to school.

then who will ruin the party? milien, monique, people after luci, fluffy tails, suddenly dragons, who?

It's more like Ass Quest and even though it shares the lewd voice and gender-bending that's still very different.

Yeah this is a good point, she already warned Luciana off of us a bit so she might have been keeping an eye in case she needed a sudden chaperone. Or in case we tugged our ear. Maybe she was hoping we would.

"Prince Alberto seems to be a decent guy," you say to Marianne.
"Yes, he's rather laid back and gets along with pretty much everyone," Marianne replies. "Though he's said countless times that he has no actual interest in the throne, everyone in the royal court is quite relieved that -he- is the crown prince as opposed to one of his siblings."

Considering that Giancarlo seems to be a philandering douchebag and Luciana's description of her older sisters wasn't really flattering either...

"From what little I know of the situation here, I can understand that," you reply.
"Arnaud says that those who actively don't seek power are usually the ones who would do the best job with it," Marianne says, shrugging. "It's the same situation as Father, I suppose... though I honestly wouldn't be surprised if Celestino was the king for another hundred years."

Just how old IS that guy, anyways?

Actually, let me do Marie first, since she's easier, and I need to reread the archives a bit for Nico.

Marie's a bird too - a broken one. Her old bodyguard, fuck if I can remember his name, was one of the few constants in her life. Therri was too busy ruling, her mother was dead, and she had begun to grow distant from Nico and Sylvie. Her only constant companion was that bodyguard; and while she didn't like him, she trusted him. She trusted him enough to keep her safe.

And he broke that trust. Violently. One anon remarked that Arch very realistically and painfully portrayed Marie as an assault victim, and I agree wholeheartedly. The anger, the low self esteem, it's all there.

So Marianne's withdrawn into her own world, which became even littler that it already had been. Her attitude, her emotionless mask - all of it's a defensive mechanism to keep people from getting close. One that was strong enough to alienate her from even some of the closest people around her. And yet we're doing just that - we're invading that little world. When we go out on the town with her, when we honestly show interest in what she's doing, what she enjoys, we begin to see the bits and pieces that she's tried to hide away from the rest of the world. We're getting closer to her despite whatever she wanted. And it terrifies her.

She's terrified to trust people. She believes everyone, except for her father, will eventually hurt her if she trusts them. Her violent outburst after our "accident", a day after finding out just how nice we are is a good indicator for her reaction to that. And she's right actually - it's what people do. Reinhold's just in the process of proving to her that wounds heal - by showing her our scars.
>>
>>29188155
This shit needs like archived or something, it's good
>>
>>29188145
Exactly how strong is Celestino, in terms of magic

Because everyone talks about him as though he is going to live forever. Arch said that the life extending effects of magic aren't *that* significant, so Celestino must be powerful enough to tear continents asunder.

Or he's a vampire
>>
>>29188154
Yes, his betrothal was decided before Marianne was even born.
Celestino kind of regrets it, since Marianne would most likely actually go for Alberto were he still a bachelor.
But as it is, he's a family friend and she doesn't see him that way.
>>
>>29188155
You forgot the part about how she reacted to our past and how she thinks(know) that we had it worse than her, which causes her to feel guilty and feel like she would be taking advantage of our kindness.

As a pure mage, he's around equal to Niklaus in terms of skill with a lot more magical capacity.
The end result is that he's on-par with Gregory's total level of skill, though he's a fair bit more fragile due to being a pure mage instead of being a magic swordsman or the like.

Ariane's stronger than he is, but much, much lazier.

Trust me, that's not how you want to do this, especially when transcribing this quest. We get a lot of choices, the VN will have less, which means some of are choices always happen or they need to be completely edited into an entirely new scene.

A visual novel engine which basically simplifies the process to copying your test and images into their editor. It's designed to be easy to work with, and it is. I'd say it's easier to make a Ren'Py VN than a basic html+CSS website.

Passing into Nebraska through Wyoming is still one of the most surreal experiences of my life. It's all huge sheer cliff faces and winding roads and then suddenly out of nowhere it's Nebraska and there's NOTHING.

I'm a little curious what being "lazier" entails when it comes to this system of magic. Is it about not keeping up with draining/refilling your reserves in order to increase them, winging it when it comes to the "directing intent" when casting, not going out of your way to try and gain new knowledge, or some arbitrary combination of those?

Could it be that Celestino is so focused on maintaining his seat of power that his singleminded focus on magical training is actually all in pursuit of a soul ascension so he can stay king forever?

As you get closer to where the others are, the faint smile on Marianne's face grows wider and wider...

"Remember when we get to the baby," you turn to her. "Blocking is important, but footwork is IMPERATIVE," you say, giving a thumbs-up.
"...thanks for the concern," Marianne replies, rolling her eyes. "In the event that she -does- attack me, I expect you to step in and take the hit for me like a good bodyguard should."
"Very well, Princess," you say with a slight bow.

Your goofy banter done with, it's not long before you make it to Sir Gregory's table.

He's sitting down while holding the decidedly less angry Chiara as he talks to his sister...

Elena is jumping up and down excitedly while listening to Agnes...

Nicolette and Melanie are sitting at an adjacent table, laughing about something...

...all while Luciana, Takamaru and Andreas watch everyone else do their thing. And naturally, they're the ones who see the two of you coming.

"Back to the cool table, eh?" Andreas says, waving you over. "It's also nice seeing you again, Princess."
"Likewise, Sir Andreas," Marianne replies.

>I'm a little curious what being "lazier" entails when it comes to this system of magic.
In Ariane's case, I meant that she doesn't bother with trining or any of that stuff, instead spending most of her time cooking or playing with the kids or other wifely duties. The last time she did anything resembling actual practice in that area was the day that her father decided to finally settle down in Granache after a lifetime of adventuring.
Most of her magic use these days is basic "make my daily life easier" stuff or the spells she teaches Bernard. (Sylvie helps sometimes too)


>Could it be that Celestino is so focused on maintaining his seat of power that his singleminded focus on magical training is actually all in pursuit of a soul ascension so he can stay king forever?
Part of it is out of guilt for what happened back in the day, part of it is out of a basic desire for self-improvement.
Celestino actually hates being King even more than Thierri does, but his ideals of how things SHOULD be are too strong for him to rest until he's certain that he won't be needed anymore.

Marianne's looking at the baby longingly... you can just tell that she'd love nothing more than to snatch Chiara from Sir Gregory's lap and start playing with her right here and now. Best to get this over with before the anxiety kills her.

"Um, Sir Gregory?" you call out.
"Hm? Oh, you brought Marianne," Sir Gregory replies.
"...mind introducing her to the little Princess there?" you ask.
"Heh..." Sir Gregory says, smiling evilly as he looks at Marianne's eager face. "This little cutie is my littlest niece, Chiara. Say hi to the other Princess, Chiara!" he says as he makes the baby wave at her.
"BASSGHGHGSHGLAAAAAA" Chiara shouts. Maybe that's her way of saying "hi?"

"This is Marianne, she's your big sister's best friend!" Sir Gregory says, poking Chiara on the nose. "And most people find her even harder to deal with than you, isn't that funny?" he laughs as he tickles the baby's stomach.
"C'mon, Gregory..." Lisette sighs.

Y'know, I'm starting to wonder why Gregory couldn't handle the bodyguard gig. They said it was because he couldn't stand her but here he is playing with a baby that likes him.

What happened to make this guy not like her? How bad was the situation?

>>
>>29188988
Because he antagonizes her and Marie doesn't take it well.
>>
>>29188988
Gregory was only second to Aquaman when it came to Marie's favorite people in the world, the bodyguard incident must've lead to one hell of a falling out
>>
>>29188988
I think because they wanted the bodyguard to also help her mental, social, and emotional woes, not just physical.

And I don't think that's Gregory's area of expertise.
>>
>>29189024
I'm thinking we need to go farther back, since she was estranged before said incident.

It might have something to do with her mom, or being forced into the princess classes.

Ignoring Sir Gregory's comment, Marianne walks up to them and gets on eye level with the baby.

"Hello, Chiara!" Marianne says, her voice a lot higher-pitched than usual. "I'm Marianne!"
"Mmmmm..." Chiara says, puffing her cheeks out.

And then.

"THPBPTPBTPTPPPPP"

Chiara spits ALL OVER MARIANNE'S FACE.

"Chiara!" Luciana shouts as she races towards them and pops the baby on her hand. "I thought I told you to stop doing that!"

Pulling her hand back from the pain, Chiara glares at her big sister...

"BAAAA!" she shouts as she does her best to jump out of Sir Gregory's lap and punch her sister in revenge.
"C'mon now, that's enough of that," Sir Gregory says, patting the baby on the head. "...and here, Marianne. Looks like you need it," he says as he hands her a handkerchief with which to wipe the baby spit off of her face.
"...thank you," Marianne replies a she takes it from him and begins drying her face.

And now for Nico, who is clearly a girl under a lot of pressure. Just look at who her parents are. Gregory? One of the greatest knights of the kingdom. Ariane? One of the strongest mages around. And her? She's the CAPTAIN of the Royal Guard. At what? 16? The girl is constantly living in the shadow of her parent's and probably having to constantly prove that she earned her rank at a job usually reserved for males, rather than having it bequeathed to her because of her lineage. It explains why she doesn't want anyone to know that Gregory is her father. She wants people to judge her for her own merits, before the inevitable comparisons to her dad.

Which is a major reason why it's no surprise that she began to take an interest in Reinhold. I don't think he's even once compared the two of them. As such, being around Reinhold is a huge relief for her. There's no pressure - hell, she's comfortable enough with him now, that she can show him her girly habits, like her interest in jewelry. In the end, she can be herself without any fears of being comparisons being made. If I was a betting man, I'd say he's one of a few people without prior knowledge not to compare them. Coincidentally, a certain meido doesn't seem the sort to do that either....

Honestly, I'm probably not even scratching the surface, but I'm tired, and need sleep.

"...I have failed in my sworn duty," you say as you bow your head in shame. "Please forgive me."
"Ugh..." Marianne sighs as she gets done wiping off the baby spit and then throws the dirty handkerchief in your face. "...you can share in my misfortune in order to make up for messing up, then."

After removing said handkerchief from your own face and handing it back to Sir Gregory, you turn to the Princess.

"You're not going to let this get you down, right?" you say as you turn back to Marianne. "Gonna try and hold her?"

"So I've heard," Marianne says as she takes the baby from Sir Gregory. "Hello, Chiara... please don't spit in my face again."

Chiara squirms for a bit in an attempt to get back to her uncle, but quickly gives up when she realizes that Marianne's not going to let her go. Instead, she turns to Marianne, draws her hand back, and...

SMACK

Before you can even react, Marianne's met Chiara's hand with her own.

"You're not going to take me off-guard again," Marianne says to the baby with an evil smile on her face.
"BA! BA! BA!" Not one to be deterred, Chiara does her beat to actually get a hit in on the blonde princess... but it's no use. Marianne blocks every hit with her own hand, after a while it's almost looking like the two are playing pattycake.

"Wow, Marianne!" Lisette giggles. "You're like a pro at this!"

The age. They didn't want some old dude, they wanted someone she can befriend and be together their whole life. And we are one of the mosnters of our generation.
>>
>>29189479
Because all the important people have more important things to do?
>>
>>29189504
More important than the heir to the throne? I really rather doubt that.
>>
>>29189479
low tier knight is still above like 90% of the human population, considering Knight seems to be as much of a powerlevel as it is a noble title.
>>
>>29189479

We're her everyday guard. 98% of the time, we should have a chance of handling an assassination: the Luciana kidnap attempt might be at the high end of normal assassinations.

The important bit, of course, was to socialise Marianne. Maybe give her some cootie vaccination so that she doesn't hate boys (or people in general) for the rest of her life.

I wouldn't be surprised if one day we find out that Thierri was adviced by someone mystic or crafty to pick us as her bodyguard. Or that that same person (be it legendary mage, elemental in disguise or dragon) was also part of our backstory.

"Looks like you might not be needed as a bodyguard after all, Reinhold," Sir Gregory says to you, smirking. "Marianne seems to be doing pretty well against the scourge of the baby menace."
"In that case, maybe she can hand him over to me instead," Luciana says, winking at you.

Unwilling to accompany their teasing, you simply laugh nervously as you turn back to Marianne... Chiara seems to have accepted her as a worthy rival, and is now giggling as Marianne pokes her in the belly.

Grandma and loli sis figure together? Noone can resist that. After we had our fun with them, we should go over to the girls, we have given them quite some time alone and we have promised a dance to Mel.

We're not /really/ around to protect Mari. We're just supposed to look impressive to the droves of filthy shitheads and keep her moderately happy.

Check on Agnes and Elena. Does elena have The Look in her eyes?

We should got find Melanie after to make good on our final promised dance though

> dun goofed

"Dun goofed" is too strong a phrase. It should be reserved for Demon Tier catastrophes, not screwing up a bit of dialogue in a /tg/-quest.

Chiara is the only princess we haven't won over that we've met so far. Time to correct that.

Speaking of which we haven't seen Sylvie in a while.
>>29189577
I don't know if Archelon can make something like Hatoful boyfriend.
>>
>>29189541
"Seeing as Chiara is almost better landing hits than me, i can leave your side with my heart at ease and go see what fascinating tales my grandmother is sharing with princess Elena."
Leave with proper goodbyes to everyone, especially the queen.
>>
>>29189602
Since we're still only dog-tier, I'd say we haven't won over Mari yet.
>>
>>29189598
I know, but I figured Arch would consider it disastrous since he's willing to delete entire posts over typos.

Then go ask for that dance from Melanie.

We said we wouldn't mind if we had time. We didn't reserve anything.
>>
>>29189541
>join in on Agnes and Elena's conversation
and then after a bit
>stick around with Marianne
see how the adorable menace reacts to us after Marianne has had her fun, so as not to ruin her baby time in the case that Chiara doesn't like us so well.

>>29189560
This would be pretty interesting as well, but it's a little more Reinhold-centric than the other options, and we could easily ask him if he would mind telling us a bit more about their antics during the carriage ride back (unless it's unreasonable to split the party in a way that would be conducive to that.)
>>
>>29189637
We only made prior plans to dance with Luci and Medio. We can dance with others if there's time.
>>
>>29189619
>>29189649
I can get behind a combination of these. Spend some time with gran-gran, play with babby, then go dance with meido

Before we leave, lean in on Chiara and say
"If anyone tries to attack Marianne, i trust you to spit and smack them your hardest princess Chiara, as the strong it is your responsibility to protect."
>>
>>29189574
Yay forgetting to copypaste lines of dialogue.

"Yes, why don't you give that a try?" Sir Gregory joins in, QUITE enjoying this.
"Very well," Marianne says, letting out a long sigh. "Hand her over."
"Do be careful," Lisette chimes in. "She likes to hit."

"So I've heard," Marianne says as she takes the baby from Sir Gregory. "Hello, Chiara... please don't spit in my face again."

"Is she able to walk yet?" Marianne asks, turning to the Queen.
"A bit," Lisette replies. "Mostly she falls over, and that dress she's wearing throws off her balance so badly that there's no point in even trying."
"That's probably why she's so mad today," Luciana says, rolling her eyes. "I have no idea why you decided to put her in that thing, Mother."
"What, it's cute!" Lisette says, shrugging. "And it's not like I'd ever put her down here, she'd probably end up running off right away and one of the jerks that your father invited here would try and kidnap her or something."

So even the Queen shares your opinion of the guests here at the party...

...and you suddenly find yourself with a baby in your face.

"Whoa!" you shout as you back away.
"Look, Chiara!" Marianne laughs. "He's afraid of you!"

>>29189726
Hey Arch, I've been wondering, why does it take so long between posts? I don't mean that in a whiny way; I'm just kinda wondering if you do like a shitload of planning with rough drafts and editing, etc. or if you just kinda write as it comes while doing other stuff.
>>
>>29189991
You're being a real whining faggot by asking that.

Too fucking busy to wait those 30 minutes, hotshot?
>>
>>29189990
You take that back! Reinhold is afraid of no princess!

No Chiara, no facehugs!

>>29190010
Honestly, I would've wanted to go the exact opposite direction, and joked that of COURSE we were scared! Princesses are terrifying!
>>
>>29190001
I wasn't complaining or asking him to hurry up, I was just wondering why. Hell, if he just types slow or something that'd be cool with me.
>>
Wait, where the fuck is Sylvie?
>>
>>29190054
She sort of disappeared after the Milien thing.
>>
>>29189990
fear based on personal experience....id like to this it is warranted
>>
>>29190052

It just seems long to you because you wait idly, while OP is struggling to form a coherent story post.

I do believe there are even slower writers among quest OPs.
>>
>>29190069
Oh yeh.
Much slower.
>>
>>29190064
>She sort of disappeared
Time for SHADOWRUNS?
>>
>>29190064
She went to get the shotgun after seeing Reinhold dance
>>
>>29190054
>>29190064

It's quite possible she saw our dance with Luciana and is sobbing in a closet somewhere.
>>
>>29190087
Not really. The only reason we've talked to Nico and Mel since then is because they were hanging out near Gregory when we dropped granny off. Just like we didn't see Luci this entire party until we went and looked for her we just haven't seen Sylvie because we never went to wherever she is.
>>
>>29190093
... sudden realization....what if she did not run off for her shotgun and is cry>>29190105
someone agrees even before I get the words out. on th other hand she did stare down luciana last time she was challenged>>29190114 but if she is not with rein..and not with any of the other party...where?....kidnapping number 2....by strangely fist-proof ninjas

"BA!" Chiara shouts as she swings at your face... but you dodge it effortlessly. She might have caught you by surprise before, but you know that she's hostile so you're expecting it.
"Well she's clearly a pretty threatening baby," you reply with a chuckle.

"No you're not," Marianne says as she pokes Chiara in the belly. "You're a good girl, aren't you!"
"blyrayyyyryeeyaa" Chiara gurgles happily.
"At least she's good with someone aside from me," Lisette sighs. "Must be because you two are so similar in temperament," she says, punching her brother in the arm.
"Now that's just mean," Sir Gregory replies.
"Yes, I'm nowhere near as annoying as your brother," Marianne says.

>>29190087

She's too smart to do something fooli-

>challenge an archmage to a wizard duel

Oh dear.

>[paranoia intensifies]
Arch, could we make a quick visual sweep of the ballroom, make sure every named NPC we know is accounted for and dragon twins are vigilant?
>>
>>29190135
Fuck, we need to search for her ASAP.
>>
>>29190144
We haven't seen Rana and Reya at all this party either.

After we dance with Meido we should hit up the dragon siblings and such.
>>
>>29190159
unlike sylvie who does not really have any one else to hang out with the dragons do
>>
>>29190159
My point is that, dragon siblings can easily deter any harassment form nobles, but I cannot be so sure about Sylvie, giver her personality.
>>
>>29190166
Sylvie has people to hang out with. The fact that she isn't hanging out with them likely means she found something else to do
>>
>>29190174
Umm, she got advice from her dad to not punch them but just shock them and everyone is going to be terrified of her because they're terrified of her dad.
>>
>>29190178
tied up in some form of crazy monster trap that uses her own strength and magic to bind her
>>
>>29190194
This isn't even shadowrunning anymore.
>>
>>29190198
you know nothing about the depths the shadows run
>>
>>29190144
Arch, please do it.
>make a quick visual sweep of the ballroom, make sure every named NPC we know is accounted for and dragon twins are vigilant?
>>
>>29190087
she's the one trying to get Luci kidnapped because she knows she loves us
>>
>>29190137

Deciding to make a retreat from this situation before it gets ugly, you focus your attention elsewhere. Thierri and Alberto are still talking... you can see Rana chatting with what looks like the top of Sylvie's head over by the food... Reya's arguing with a nobleman... and Monique's back. Great.

While you don't see Citrine, Marius or Celestino anywhere, they're most likely putting the final touches on the presentation of Marius's painting. Probably.

>[3/?]
>>
>>29190213
I'm pretty sure the ballroom is pretty large and filled with people. We would have to search for every character.
