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.Sylvie crushed (and then fixed) your foot during a failed attempt at dancing... but the time for your suffering is at its end.For Emilio actually mustered up the courage to ask Marianne for a dance. And then Lisette pressured Sir Gregory and Elena into sharing a dance as well.It looks like Emilio's the only one out of the four who actually WANTS to be dancing......at least you're not directly involved in this one.>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.Thread archive:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=Princess+Guard+QuestCharacter list + descriptions (in progress):http://pastebin.com/1Vhj4DJvList and descriptions of the spells shown thus far:http://pastebin.com/2c9y2sDMTwitter:https://twitter.com/QM_ArchelonQuest compilation that's kindly maintained by a person who isn't me:https://www.dropbox.com/sh/n4nhs9gd0kmnnni/04tpEy5_pe>>>>>>>>
As the even of you make your way towards the dance floor, the crowd parts to give PLENTY of room to the birthday boy. At least they know how to show him some respect...Looking at the others with you, you notice that Karel seems to want to talk to you."What's up?" you ask."Oh- umm... yeah..." Karel mumbles. "Mr. Gilbeault's the one who you faced in you own tournament finals, right?""Yeah, that's right." you reply."I was just thinking about how brave it was for you to accept his challenge like that without a second thought," he says with a nervous chuckle. I mean, I'd probably faint on the spot if Mr. Takamaru was to challenge me again... especially after last night. You weren't scared at all?">how do you respond?
Happy 100th!Threadly reminder we're supposed to get children's pictures
Rolled 9>>29474760CONGRATS ON 100 THREADSWOOOOAct 2 when?
Rolled 8>>29474809"Hardly! Do you know how hard it is to find someone of a similar skill level to fight and train against? All the guards back home refuse to duel with me so I usually only fight with Nico.Honestly, I'm excited. I wonder how much hes improved since we last fought."
>>29474809"I am more or less tired of him at this point. If this gets him to be quiet then I'll do it."
>>29474884Yeah let's have a good attitude about this.
>>29474809I had no reason to say no. If Monique beats me, then that only means he has improved far more than I have and he might even decide to end this silly little feud of his. And if I win, then I win.
>>29474809"The only thing at risk would be my reputation, and it is something I'll defend. I don't believe I should be afraid, especially of my own life. Besides, I'd like to see how much he's improved."
>>29474809>Actually I was a bit embarrassed. I don't really like being the center of attention, as much as the spot light seems to be drawn to me these days.
>>29474809 a difficult fight is worth a little fear carol if you are going to continue in the career of the swordie you will have to get used to that......and he seemed to want it so badly
>>29474809Honestly? No, it has been increasingly difficult to find opponents who will actually challenge me to a fight and in spite of our, disagreements, he is a worthwhile challenge. The part that really scared me was how the king would react to that lunatic nearly ruining his sons party by broadcasting his personal grudge and turning it into a spectacle.
>>29474809"Enh Prince seems happy and I know Monique won't kill me so I'm fine. Really don't give care what other people think of me or my reputation. I'm good at what I do and that's the only thing that matters. Besides the guards back home refuse to train with me and the only other people there are crazy strong."
>>29474809"Not scared. More embarrassed than anything. I just hope this gets the whole "CONSPIRACY AGAINST ME" thing out of his head...
Here's to triple digits. Only a matter of time 'till 1000. lol>>29474809"I was more confused, really. I know he doesn't like me much, but I really wasn't expecting him to do something like that.>>29474884But now that it's had time to sink in a little bit, I'm actually kind of looking forward to it."
>>29474760THREAD 100 BABY
>>29474988Seconding this.And a PGQ that I'm actually awake for? And it's thread 100? Excellent. Congrats archelon, and thanks for the ride.
>>29474809respond.>eh, if you think about it logically there really is nothing to make me be scared. Gilbeaut is a man of honor, and he won't try to kill me because that would be a stain on his reputation. I'm a pretty decent swordsman who beat him and won the tournament, so even if he tried to kill me I would be able to handle myself. The rules specify no magic, so that's another avenue i need not be concerned with. It will be in an open arena with thousands watching, so no knife in my back. And the king and you will be watching, so that futher cements acting honorably and professionally. >No, there's nothing to be scared off. Usually when you are afraid it is because you lack understanding or lack the grasp of the problem facing you. Once you understand the scope, then you can understand the cause, and then it's just a matter of breaking it down logically.
>>29474884>>29475047A combo of these two.
>>29475101they used to start at 8-10, but for some reason archelon switched it to 4-6 hours later.
>>29474884This will do. Also ask him if he has time to spar tonight. Some practice for us will do us some good.
Oh god we're still at the fucking party.

>>29475721my only question is why you thought that was an appropriate image to go along with your text
"Not at all," you say, smiling. "I dunno about you, but it's REALLY hard to find someone around my skill level to fight and train against... all the guards back home refuse to duel with me, so I usually only spar with Nicolette.""What, my daughter isn't good enough for you?" Sir Gregory asks, turning back to glance at you."Huh?" you stop for a split-second, kind of surprised to have him pop into your conversation like that. "Nicolette's plenty strong, but going up against a lance is pretty different from facing a sword...""I suppose you -do- have a point there... consider yourself forgiven," Sir Gregory says.It's hard to tell when he's serious and when he's just messing with you."...but yeah, I'm kind of excited," you say. "I wonder how much he's improved since our last fight.""I guess you're braver than I am," Karel says, laughing nervously. "If it means anything, I'll be rooting for you."Karel then turns away from you, a devilish smile on his face...>[1/?]

>>29475874The mental picture of what you just described is not half as disturbing as the fact that I have no issue whatsoever believing that it's true. Man, I don't want to live on this planet anymore.
>>29475956I needed an attention grabber, i was actually hoping to get some insight from people who read the archives.
>>29475990>Karel then turns away from you, a devilish smile on his face...wut. Damn my paranoia
>>29475990>Karel then turns away from you, a devilish smile on his face...Is this the part where we say he's a cunt? I mean, we did the same to Sylvie.
>>29475990I find the fact that Karel's pic is Fate Prototype Saber slightly interesting.
>>29475990>Karel then turns away from you, a devilish smile on his face......>[Worrying Intensifies]

"What about what?""Who are you going to be rooting for during the duel?" he asks. "I'm on Reinhold's side, but..."C'mon Karel... why are you messing with him like this?"I- I dunno, I mean..." Emilio mumbles. "Y- you both are pretty nice, so I don't know...""He's still starstruck because Mr. Gilbeault gave him the Fragment Blade as a birthday present," Karel says, nudging you with his elbow."Ah, so you're the type whose favor can be bought with rare gifts?" Sir Gregory asks, glancing over at his nephew."wha- it- it's not like that, I just-" Emilio stammers.>do something to end the teasing before Marianne joins in>a man needs to learn how to fight his own battles...

This could be bad.But a man has to learn how to fight his own battles at some point... might as well be now."It's not because of the gifts," Emilio mumbles."Oh, so you're a fan of his charming personality, then?" Marianne asks, not even bothering to look at him. "I'd have expected that from Giancarlo, but not you...""Eh!?" Emilio stares at Marianne. "Mr. Gilbeault isn't a womanizer like Giancarlo is... is he?"Wow, he actually took her seriously. Poor kid doesn't seem to be used to Marianne..."Don't worry, Your Highness," Andreas says, laughing as he pats the Prince on his shoulder. "Monique Gilbeault may be a pompous jerk, but I very much doubt that he'd approve of your brother's, er... hobbies.""R- really?" Emilio looks at him with a relieved expression. "That's a relief...

"Well," Sir Gregory says with a smirk, "considering that you have the hots for Marianne here-"Without any warning, Marianne punches him in the side.Or rather, she -tries- to, but he dodges it effortlessly."Warning taken, I retract my comment," Sir Gregory says, laughing. "You know, she -is- going to be the Queen someday..." Andreas says, sighing. "You really should stop antagonizing her so much.""It's just some friendly ribbing among family," he replies."Yes, like how I can now tease him for being bullied by his -younger- sister into dancing in front of all these people even though I'm quite sure that I recall him swearing that he'd never do such a thing," Marianne says, smirking.Fortunately for EVERYONE, you all make it to the dance floor before they really start trading insults. Once again, the guests all give your group a wide berth as you approach."You ready to get this over with, Elena?" Sir Gregory says, turning to his niece."Yeah," Elena mumbles. "We only have to do one dance, right?" she asks."Your mother said that you had to dance, but she didn't say anything about the length of said dance," he replies, winking. "Let's get this over with as soon as we can, eh?""'kay.">[1/2]

Nobody mentioned Interior Semiotics yet?Also what the fuck moot stop trying to get me to buy your fucking pass with white-on-black captchas.On a completely unrelated topic, how inadequate is Emilio going to feel if we end up with Princess Peaches?
>>29478580>Interior Semioticsno clue what that isalso, loosing to us probably won't make him feel too bad since we're a bastion of manliness to him (why he tried to set us up with his sister). her winding up with some stuck up fop would hurt his pride though
>>29478502I've only seen the female ones in my journeys of the internet and that is enough
>>29478580I'm pretty sure his problems lay with him being unable to feel any more inadequate. That's kind of a moot question.
>>29478348>[2/2]While Sir Gregory and Elena head onto the dance floor while Andreas watches on, Karel pokes Emilio in the back."Don't you have anything to say?" he asks."O- oh yeah," Emilio stammers as he turns to Marianne. "Er- may I please have this dance?" he says as he awkwardly takes the Princess's hand."Very well," Marianne replies, sighing.Blushing as hard as Sylvie does during one of her more awkward moments, Emilio leads Marianne on to the dance floor where they quickly take position and begin dancing. As for Sir Gregory and Elena, she's standing on his feet while they dance a dance of pure awkwardness.Both of them look like they want to do anything BUT this.>bodyguard conversation?

>>29478787There's no real reason for a royal bodyguard to be getting into "actual combat" for any reason other than to defend their charge from something or someone.Which isn't really a topic we want to broach around potentially gossipy nobles.>>29478852>>29478803These are both things I'd be interested in talking as well.also, try and time the world-record pace of Gregory and Elena's obligatory dance, just out of curiosity as to how quickly a courtly dance can actually be performed.

As the others dance, you turn to Karel."So how'd last night for for you?" you ask. "That was your first time in real combat, right?""Hm? Uh, yeah... it was actually -really- scary," Karel replies with a sigh. "And I wasn't exactly the biggest help, Mr. Takamaru did most of the work...""You and Takamaru?" Andreas says, having appeared next to the to of you. "Did you two get into something yesterday that I don't know about?""Geh-" Karel stammers.Shit, you totally forgot that Andreas was right here this entire time... it probably wasn't the best idea to talk about that right here."J- just some bandits in town, nothing big," Karel says, laughing nervously."Ah," Andreas says, nodding.

"...it brings a tear to the eye.""I'm just glad that he didn't wuss out," Karel replies, smiling as he watches the two of them dance. "I was prepared to ask on his behalf, but he has more guts than I gave him credit for," he laughs."You were acting pretty nervous yourself when we first met," you say. "but you seem pretty different when dealing with the Prince. Are you not good at dealing with people you don't know all that well?" you ask."I guess," Karel says, sighing. "I was freaking out pretty badly when I first got assigned to the Prince, but he was every bit as nervous as I was...""...but I kind of had to step up since it would've been no good if BOTH of us were nervous wrecks the entire time," Karel says with a tired laugh.

>>29479823Hey arch how did you learn moon anyways?
>>29479801>[3/3]"I actually ran into her earlier while I was looking for Princess Luciana," you say. "Uh... is she always like that?""Am I always like -what-?" a voice whispers into your ear.Freezing up from the sudden shock of WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT ABOUT, you glance back and see Alicia's smiling face."Mom!" Karel calls out, a warm smile on his face."Just the bodyguard I was looking for," Alicia giggles as she hugs her son. "Wasn't expecting to run into Reinhold again... or you, Sir Andreas.""Um, nice to see you again," Andreas replies nervously.>how do you react?
>>29479985"Always so... charming. And friendly. And charming. And friendly."
>>29480005Did I mention charming?
>>29479985>"-friendly. Have you been enjoying the party, Ms.(name)?"
>>29479971I can barely get Spanish verbs right myself.>>29479985>>29480031This, plus:"You two seem to have a close relationship, even for mother and son."~ara ara~ intensifies.

>>29480005VERY friendly.>>29479985Take a moment to compose ourselves."...I suppose that answers that question.""Hello again. Still enjoying the festivities, I take it?"
>>29479985THREEESOOOOOME and let kalel watch while tied.
>>29479985Be polite, but keep an eye on the princess.
>>29479985>random peasant mom manages to sneak up on THREE royal bodyguards unnoticed while they're on dutymaybe talk less and watch mari more
>>29480129All the more reason to think she is a sleeper agent anon.
100 threads in and I still don't get the point of the animal rank system.Why does only Marianne get one?
>>29480149and celestino was worried about us
>>29480160 cause she is the job
>>29480160She da baws, ya git.
>>29479985DEPLOYING SPAGHETTIFIRING FOR EFFECT
>>29480167I genuinely think Celestino just wants to watch us fight. Which is why he's going through with this.He probably knows as much as anyone that if we were bullshitting, a lot of people would have called us out by now.
>>29480290no i think he genuinely thinks we may be involved with shit, just that there's only like a 1% chance, but since it is his daughter that's getting attempts at her life, he has to check that 1% out
>>29480290>>29480322Maybe he's got senile while managing to get everyone to think he's just inscrutable?
>>29480342He wasn't really acting senile when he was talking to Gregory. What he was acting like was somebody with some pretty heavy paranoia issues.
"Always so... charming," you say uneasily. "And friendly. And charming. And friendly."Karel may not mind seeing as how Alicia's his mother and all, but... dear god what the hell. At least Andreas is as uncomfortable as you are."Why aren't we the charmer," Alicia giggles. "I have to say, I wasn't expecting to get a chance to watch you duel...""Yeah, I wasn't expecting that either," you reply."Two handsome young men, battling in the name of honor... I'm getting excited just thinking about it!""C'mon, Mom," Karel sighs. "If you're gonna flirt with him, do it some other time. We're on the job now," he says, pointing to the dancing royals."Don't worry, I won't bug you for too long," Alicia replies. "Just thought I'd wish Reinhold here luck during his duel... and I have to say that I'm -very- surprised to find out that you're Volker Eschenwald's kid... adopted or not, that's quite something.">ask the nice lady a thing>thank her for the kind words and wish her well
>>29480454>>ask the nice lady a thing"Would you please take your hand off my genitals?"/joke
>>29480387Paranoia? Maybe he just wants to get rid of an unwanted suitor for his daughter. Threat of Rein being a spy might be just a justification.
>>29480454>thank her for the kind words and wish her well
>>29480454"Well these two guys seemed to be full of surprises".
>>29480454Thank her for the kind words and wish her well. I think this is what Reinhold would earnestly do, but ironically it's likely to make her more interested.
>>29480454>thank her for the kind words and wish her wellCOUGAR BEGONE!
Rolled 20>>29480454>>ask the nice lady a thing"Did you know Volker?"This is our chance to pursue this line of questioning. If Karel is the descendant of meido lover.
>>29480454>Thank her for the kind words and wish her well
>>29480454Ask her whether she knew Volker.
>>29480454>Care to dance later?I want her to grope Reinhold's peaches.
>>29480454Yeah, I agree ask if she knew Volker.
>>29480454 thanks nice lady but...I kinda got to watch out to keep princess from totally murdering that wimpy kid she is dancing with, farewell seriously though>>thank her for the kind words and wish her well
>>29480521Going with this.
>>29480454>ask the nice lady a thing"I was just as surprised as you are. I didn't even know Volker was nobility until recently.Did you know him at all?"
>>29480478It was just the way he was talking to Gregory about his suspicions about us made me think of him like some detective that has just solved some grand conspiracy. It just reminded me of a friend of mine with paranoia with the leaps in logic and the way he was talking.
>>29480706>yfw Celestino was fantasy-Kenji when he was young>"It's the elemental conspiracy, Agnes!"
"Did you know him at all?" you ask. "Seeing as how you're both from Marconetti...""Umm, I can't exactly say that I was friends with him or anything like that... though I certainly wouldn't have minded 'knowing' him, if you know what I mean," Alicia says, winking."Mom!" Karel whisper-shouts."Ehehe... anyways, he was a bit of a regular at our cafe whenever he was actually in town," Alicia says. "We weren't on a first-name basis or anything, but he did recognize me when I'd pass him on the street... it's a real shame what happened to him.""Yeah, it really was," you reply with a grim expression."Anyways, I think it's nice that you've made friends with my Karel here!" she says, patting you on the shoulder in a decidedly non-flirtatious manner. "I'm sure that both of us will be cheering you on tomorrow!" she giggles.>[1/?]
>>29480862the maid game ridiculous
>>29480862Wait. Is she gonna push Karel x Reinhold.
>>29480894more like the full family package.
>>29480959I'm cool with that.
>>29480894Be honest. Wouldn't you want a great guy like Reinhold to date your offspring?Even if he's a bit of a dense Gary Stu.>>29480959>Reinhold's reaction when
>>29480862>[2/2]"You'll be there too?" Karel asks, a hopeful shine in his eyes."Well, the King DID say that all of the guests get priority seating tomorrow," Alicia replies, patting him on the head. "After I get another drink, I'm going to go and ask if I can sit by you so we can watch the match together!""Th- that'd be nice, but I'll still be on the job..." Karel says, blushing."What, I'm not allowed to sit behind you?" Alicia pouts."I- I didn't mean it like that..." Karel mumbles."Ehehe... well, I ought to get moving before they run out of the good stuff," she laughs. "I'll see you later, alright?""Okay," he nods. "Take care, Mom.""Yeah, it was nice seeing you again," you reply in an attempt to try and be polite."And don't think I've forgotten about -you-, Sir Andreas," Alicia says, winking to him as she turns towards the drink bar."Uh, yeah," Andreas replies, sweating a bit.And as quickly as she showed up, Alicia disappears into the crowd.>look around>talk to Karel>talk to Andreas>watch the dancing dancers
>>29481066>watch the dancing dancers
>>29481066>talk to Andreas"Shit's spooky, yo."Although I'm sure Reinhold would be more polite about it while conveying the same feeling.
>>29481066>watch the dancing dancers>talk to Karel>talk to Andreas
>>29481066>>watch the dancing dancersPriorities.
>>29481066>watch the dancing dancers>>29481093Seconded.

What if Reinhold has a micropenis?
>>29481176He'll use his chin then.
>>29481189Fuck, you again? Wasn't your public shaming enough?
>>29481066>Talk to Karelabout Luciana. completly platonical interest, of course. really
>>29481176You can please a bitch plenty of ways.
What if Reinhold is asexual?
>>29481227Then there's no need to waifu and he reproduces by budding.
>>29481227asexual reproduction>inserts his own sword
>>29481227What if Marianne was asexual?
What if Reinhold was the princess?
>>29481066I bet Andreas is thinking she's as much of a disgusting ho as we think she is, but he won't say it in front of her kid.
>>29481285Or, you know, cougars make him nervous.
>>29481066>talk to Andreas"Show the court where she touched you using this doll"
>>29481285Or maybe agressive milfs are his fetish and he is afraid it'll be found out.
Breathing a sigh of relief as Alicia vanishes from sight, you turn to Andreas."Not really the kind of danger you were expecting when you signed up for this, is it?" you ask."Eh, I've known her long before I got this job," Andreas sighs. "I'm a favorite target of hers to hit on, what with the whole 'swordsman' thing..." and then he remembers hat her son's standing right next to him. "Er, no offense intended, of course," he says, laughing nervously."None taken," Karel replies with a tired smile. She's always like that... and she's clearly been drinking so I'm just glad that she didn't get grabby with you two," he shrugs. "I hope you believe me when I say that she's not always this, um... frisky.""Yeah, the innuendo seemed to be a bit heavier than usual," Andreas says. "You sure she's going to be okay getting home?""She's staying at the castle now, so there's nothing to worry about there... thank God," he mombles.>[1/?]
>>29481387How could that not be someone's fetish?
>>29481312... we played as Millien and had to reconquer the Princess?>>29481276Oh god, a personality reversal would be horrible.>"Hey Reinhold, I had some cake baked for you.">"Hmmph... I suppose you're not as egotistical as you appear to be. But must I remind you of my Tragic Backstory (tm)?
>>29481456Some people just have shit taste.
>>29481470shut it. you'll get the post deleted.
>>29481463>Instead of dance lessons, Reinhold would have therapy sessions
>>29481494Just like every teenage "princess".
>>29481449Focusing your attention back on Marianne, you watch as she dances with Emilio.Though he did say that he's had several months' worth of dance lessons, this is offset by his natural awkwardness. As such, the overall result is that he's dancing about as good as you do... but Marianne doesn't seem overly pissed, so that's good at least.Too bad he seems to be so focused on getting the dance right that he doesn't seem to actually be enjoying himself... seems like a waste, considering that this is his one chance to actually get to dance with the girl he likes.But hey at least he had the courage to do it at all.>[2/?]
>>29481632>YO E-DOG LOOSEN UP MARIANNE DON'T LIKE TIGHTASSESYou know, encourage him.
>>29481632Go go Emilio! Get rid off at least one of them for us!
>>29481677The Marianne ship is larger than any of the others hombre, Emilio ain't sinking nada.
>>29481723This guy knows it, heed his words.
>>29481723>>29481734>not wanting to ntr Emilio
>>29481756Au contraire, this is something I look forward to.
>>29481756I really don't. He can have her, as long as he makes her happy. But he needs to man the fuck up for that to happen.
>>29481632As for Sir Gregory and Elena... honestly, it's kind of really cute.She's standing on his feet as he awkwardly go through the movements, but the cuteness of the situation itself is countered by how the fact that neither of them wants to be doing this is showing on both of their faces.You can tell that Sir Gregory's trying to get through the dance as quickly as possible, but it's not exactly possible with Elena standing on his feet and yeah.It's kind of sad.But also kind of funny.You'll NEVER mention this to either of them, though. Ever. Because they'd kill you.>[3/4]
>>29481677 Karel will date Emilio
>>29481899Well, he just has a crush and she didn't reciprocate at all yet. So it's not really ntr.
>>29481897I'd be okay with that.
>>29481896>[4/4]After what you're sure felt like an eternity for all parties involved, both pairs finish dancing at around the same time and come back to where the three of you are waiting for them.>tease someone>be a nice boy and say nothing
>>29481930>>be a nice boy and say nothingBut show it off. In that Rein is struggling not to smile too hard.
>>29481930>be a nice boyJust get this over with.
>>29481930>be a nice boy and say nothingWe talked enough this whole day.
>>29481930>be a nice boy and say nothingMaybe give Marianne a smile, but nothing else.
>>29481930Is there even anyone we can get away with teasing?>be a nice boy and say nothing
>>29481930>>be a nice boy and say nothing
>>29481930>be a nice boy and say nothing
>>29481930>be a nice boy and say nothingGet that sarcasm prepared for Marianne, though.
>>29481930>tease someoneGive them all a smile. "Princess Marianne, if I didn't know better I'd say you managed to have fun."
>>29481930>tease someoneJust nod to Marie.
>>29481930>>tease someone>GregoryHe deserved it
>>29481978We tease marianne in private.
>>29481930>be a nice boy and say nothingYeah, nah. Let's not.
>>29481944>>29481970i support both of these
>>29481978do you want to go down on the animal scale?
As they approach, you decide to be a nice guy and not tease anyone... though you're unable to keep from smiling a bit.Just a bit."Nice going!" Karel says with a wide grin as he high-fives the embarrassed Prince. "You danced better than I ever could!""Umm, thanks," Emilio mumbles."Hm," Marianne says, noticing that you're looking at her. "No snappy remarks this time?" she asks. "I'm almost disappointed.""Well, I could always-" you begin to say, but are cut off."I said -almost- disappointed," Marianne sighs. "Don't press your luck.""Very well, Princess," you say with a salute."I'm going to go sit back down now," Sir Gregory says as he walks past you. "Follow me or don't, it doesn't matter to me.""Wait up, Uncle Gregory!" Elena calls out as she chases behind him."Well of course I wouldn't leave -you-," Sir Gregory says as he looks behind and takes her hand.The rest of you decide to follow before anyone else bothers you, and it's not long before you make it back to the table..."Reinhold!" Citrine exclaims, racing towards you the instant she sees you. "I'm so sorry about what happened, I had no idea that your opponent would react like that...""Yeah, I would've painted something else if I'd known that it'd get you in trouble like that," Marius says, looking EXTREMELY guilty.>how do you respond?
>>29482269>"There was no way for you to guess he'd be that crazy, don't worry about it"
>>29482269"It's not your fault. He would have snapped sometime anyway."
>>29482269"He's evidently a nutjob, you couldn't have known. Don't worry about it."
>>29482269"It's not your fault Monique has a fragile ego. I liked the painting a lot. I was really honored."
>>29482269Don't beat yourself about it, bro. He's crazy like that, and you couldn't have known.
>>29482269There's no way you could have known he would hold a grudge like that.
>>29482269He's just crazy. I am flattered you chose me as the subject for your big project though, I totally didn't see that coming.
>>29482316>>29482335Something like these.
>>29482269Well, it's not like you knew he'd be here, right?
>>29482269 while it is an inconvenience it is not like it got me stabbed or anythingthen just leave that unspoken thing here in case of incident at the fight.so we th e readers can muahahahahahhaaha over it
>>29482269"Don't worry about it, Monique is a fragile sort and I'm honored that you chose me for your painting.Besides, I was afraid that I wouldn't get a good fight during this visit. I'm looking forward to it."
>>29482316>>29482324These sound fine.
>>29482373....better hope taki is not within earshot hearin you talkin smack about him he would not be so crass as to freak out but we do not want to insult the man
>>29482373No reason to insult Takimura like that
>>29482409That was a friendly spar, not a fight. We used wooden swords and played it safe. We get an actual duel with Monique.
>>29482409Or Reya. He was also pretty good.
>>29482436i hope that Monique injures Rein causing a scar or a limb.
>>29482624How can you cause a limb
>>29482624>Causing a limb>Suddenly Rein has an extra arm
>>29482631By mutation caused by his radiant countenance, maybe
>>29482662You accidentally a limb.
>>29482662Accidentally, of course.
>>29482624Do you even magic healing?
>>29482631I think he meant "limp"
>>29482631 tina gets frisky with our geneti code after prissyboys new magicsword does magics to it
"It's not your fault that Monique has a fragile ego," you say to Marius. "I liked your painting a lot too, I was really honored.""Heh, thanks," Marius replies, adjusting his glasses. "I wanted to apologize to you sooner, but I got practically swarmed by people who wanted to commission me after the big reveal," he says with a tired laugh."In the end we had to use my swollen ankles as an excuse to get away from then," Citrine says, shrugging."Oh, your ankles are already..." Agnes says, looking down at her feet."Nope!" Citrine laughs. "But they didn't know that and that's what matters!""Nice going," Sir Gregory says as he retrieves his youngest niece from Lisette's arms and sits back down. "Feel free to stick around here if you want to get away from the guests, they're afraid of me so they're not about to approach this table as long as I'm around.""Thanks, but I do kind of need to get back out there for business and all of that," Marius replies with a long sigh. I think this'll make for a decent breather, though."I suppose that dance put you in a better mood, then?" Lisette asks."Shut up," Sir Gregory says, glaring at his sister.>[1/?]
>>29482720Implying we wouldn't ask them to let the scar remain.Then we'll be the scarred badass with a tragic backstory.
>>29482782If you have childhood rape you gotta have scars too. Everyone knows that.
>>29482782Do they even exist when magic is so common?
>>29482861you can't rape the willing
>>29482879 probably more for poor folks
>>29482879I'd wager that some wounds left by particularly notable enemies would be left to scar by those who'd like to remember the fight or keep it as a badge of achievement.
>>29482751>[2/2]"I guess we ought to go and mingle with the guests some more," Emilio mumbles. "This is kind of my party after all...""Guess that's it for us, then," Karel says, bowing."Oh, wait!" Lisette says as she scurries over to her son and kisses him on the cheek. "I just wanted to wish you a happy birthday again!""Th... thanks, Mother..."Embarrassed by this display of motherly affection, Prince Emilio makes for the other side of the hall, Karel following closely behind.>anyone you wanted to bother?
>>29482930bother ze princesses
>>29482930Seems like a good time for me to go to bed. Night folks.
>>29482879Nico will probably have lots when she gets older.
>>29482930Ask Agnes about directions to her home so Citrine, Marius, and us can visit later, bring Marianne along since we kind of can't go without her permission and she'd like to go to maybe.
>>29482930Nope. Scan the room then TIMESKIP til this party is over (or crashed by a coup attempt)!
>>29482930ASK THE QUEEN OF NAMEK FOR A DANCE.
>>29482930We should express approval of Emilio's courage. He made a decent step forward from what we have seen.
>>29482963Sounds like a good idea. Agnes said to make sure to get directions before this was over and asking Celestino is out of the question since paranoia.
>>29482930We have nothing left to do. Lets just try to enjoy ourselves with everyone until something of note happens or the party ends.
>>29482930It's family time again. Hang out with sister, grandma, and brother-in-law.
>>29482930Talk with Marianne, then we become LORD OF THE DANCE with her and totally show up Emilio.
>>29482963Going with this.
>>29482979>NAMEKIt's not that long in threads, it's just that archelon was travelling and taking holiday breaks during it.
So I noticed something.Karel's mom has a thing for swordsmen. Was a waitress at a restaurant Volker visited often.Adrien is a swordsman that traveled with Volker. Has a thing for waitresses.
>>29483254You must be new here. That theory was put forth like 5 min after the first time we met her
"Hey, Grandma?" you say, turning to Agnes."Hm?" Agnes replies, seemingly have been in the middle of telling a story or something to Elena. "What is it?""Would you mind giving me directions to your place?" you ask. "I was thinking that it might be a good idea to visit you there at least once before I have to head back to Granache..."And then you remember that any free time you have is regulated by Marianne."...if the Princess is okay with it, that is," you say."I wouldn't have a problem with that," Marianne replies. "If nothing else, it's something to do.""Ah yes, you still don't know where the family estate is," Agnes says, snapping her fingers. "But I don't have anything to write the directions on, and I very much doubt that you'd remember if I told you right now...""I can help there," Marius says as he produces a notepad and pencil from his pocket before you're able to do the same. "I never leave home without it!""Thank you very much, Marius!" Agnes says, smiling at him."Gotta make a good impression, you know," he laughs.>[1/?]
>>29483254i'm going to reply with a slowbro in this quest next year just for you.
Rolled 11>>29483278We can probably bring Marianne along when we do so.It'll be a nice change of pace from sitting in the room the whole day.

>>29483300Does she even has the right to leave now?
>>29483300I think she just agreed to come along.
Rolled 16>>29483344What? We're not doing this today, probably the day after tomorrow or something.
>>29483278>[2/2]Agnes then uses Marius's pencil and pad to write up two sets of directions, one for you and the other for Citrine."I think I'll be sticking around home while you all are in town, so come and visit me whenever," Agnes says, smiling at you. "...I'll be attending Reinhold's duel though, of course.""Ooh, so you'll get the chance to see Reinhold show off how awesome he is with a sword!" Citrine giggles.If she's going to be attending the duel tomorrow, then you might be able to... hm.>ask Marianne and Agnes if you can head there tomorrow morning before the duel to visit and personally escort her to the arena>ask if you can visit some other time
>>29483363>ask Marianne and Agnes if you can head there tomorrow morning before the duel to visit and personally escort her to the arena
>>29483300If you look closely, you'll notice that her response is phrased such that she's coming with us.

Happy 100 OP. You an pretty cool bro.
>>29483416she-she's too old for that!!
>>29483427>Reinhold is going to Agnes' house just before the duel, bringing the Princess with him[celestino intensifies]
"Umm... would it be okay if we headed there tomorrow morning, before the duel?" you ask. "And then we could go with you to the arena... if M- er, the Princess was okay with it, of course.""Being proactive for a change?" Marianne asks. "Very well. If your grandmother doesn't find it too imposing, I don't see why not.""Of course it's not imposing!" Agnes laughs. "It's been so long since I've had any guests over, much less family!""Crap," Citrine mumbles. "Marius is going to be busy then, so I guess we can't come along," she says, looking at the ceiling."I'm the one who's going to be busy, don't think that you have to come along with me on every single boring thing I'm stuck doing," Marius says. "If you want, we can always meet up at the arena...""No, there's no point if we're not together," Citrine pouts."Looks like you found yourself a clingy one there," Sir Gregory says with a smirk."A clingy girl's what I need," Marius laughs.

>>29483614>[2/2]"Well it's nice to see that the two of you re so suited for each other," Lisette says, smiling at the happy couple. "Gregory here married a super cheerful girl who's an absolute delight to be around, completely counter to him... she's pretty good at keeping her husband in line as well.""Leave me out of it, dammit..." Sir Gregory mutters, cutting his sister a sharp glance."As you can see, he's quite the grouch otherwise," she teases.Yeah, you can REALLY see the family resemblance... not that you're about to comment on that."Mama, can I go too?" Elena asks. "Mrs. Agnes is really cool, and-""It's a family thing, so no," Lisette quickly cuts her daughter off."Aww..." Elena says, puffing her cheeks out."Don't worry, you're welcome to visit whenever your parents allow you to," Agnes says, winking at the little princess. "And Andreas here knows where I live...""Y- yeah, I do," Andreas says, smiling nervously. "You'd have to ask the Queen if it's okay first, though...""That's right, I don't want you harassing the elderly at all hours of the day.""Papa's way older than she is anyways," Elena retorts.And is promptly smacked in the back of the head by her mother."Watch it," Lisette says, glaring at Elena."Owww..." Elena groans as she holds her aching head.>wanted to bother anyone else before te party's end?

>>29483870i'd want that too but she is here as party security so that is probably not possible.
>>29483880>Elena's resumed pulling on Sir Gregory's arm while he holds Elena with the other
Citrine and Marius are chatting with Agnes and Lisette.Luciana's giggling about something with Marianne (of course Marianne is not giggling)Not one to be outdone by the baby, Elena's resumed pulling on Sir Gregory's arm while he holds Chiara with the other... you'd think that most people would find that kind of annoying, but he seems to be enjoying himself.Sylvie's migrated over to where Nicolette and Melanie are talking with Rana. Judging from the punching gestures that Rana's making, they're probably going on about fights.And Andreas and Takamaru are doing their best not to get in anyone else's way, like the right proper bodyguards they are.Seeing as how both Nicolette and Marianne have no desire to dance, you decide not to bother either of them about it, instead taking a seat and enjoying the fact that nobody's staring at you for once.>[1/?]

>>29483948But not ginger?
>>29483952Fuck off to your life, we're good here.
>>29483918After a while, you notice that Marianne looks a lot happier than usual..."Father!" she exclaims as Thierri finally makes his way to where everyone else is."So this is the table where all the cool people are, huh?" Thierri laughs as he walks up to Sir Gregory."More like the 'we don't want to be bothered' table," Sir Gregory replies as he holds Chiara up to the King's face."GAAAA!" Chiara laughs as she pulls on his beard, causing his face to stretch along with it."Aw, it looks like she likes you," Sir Gregory says as he pulls the baby back. "I was hoping that she'd punch you in the face like she usually does to strangers.""Clearly she senses my charming personality," Thierri says with a chuckle. "You've got a cute baby there, Lisette. Reminds me of Marianne when she was that age.""Thank you, Thierri," Lisette replies. "So what brings you over here, you got tired of your fellow guests?""Nah, I was just wondering if I could get a dance in with my lovely daughter before the party ends," Thierri replies.>[2/?]

>>29483996"Though I know that she's not exactly a fan of such things..." Thierri says with an exaggerated frown."You know that I have no issues with dancing with you," Marianne replies as she gets up from her seat."Haha, great!" Thierri says as he lifts her up in the air before she can react. "Now I get to show off my INCREDIBLE DANCING TALENT off to everyone!""Oh God..." Sir Gregory mumbles."No need to get up, Reinhold," Thierri says, placing a hand on your shoulder just as you're about to stand. "I'll take care of her for the rest of the party... and I'm QUITE excited to see your rematch with Monique Gilbeault," he laughs."Thank you, Your Majesty," you reply."I saw him hanging out with the royal family of Kinsen not too long ago... perhaps he's learned some fancy Eastern secret sword techniques?" he says, winking at you."Don't be stupid," Sir Gregory sighs. "They're probably just amused by his clownish antics, that's all.">[3/?]
>>29484082>[4/4]"Maybe I'll challenge the victor to a special exhibition duel," Thierri says, a wide grin on his face. "You'd better watch out, Reinhold!""You know full well that you can't use a sword to save your life," Sir Gregory retorts."Honestly, Father..." Marianne sighs."I didn't say anything about a -sword- duel," he laughs. "And I'm sure that Celestino could lend me a nice axe t-""Come on before you embarrass me any more than you already have," Marianne says as she takes her father's hand and pulls him away from the table.>last chance to do something before the end of the party

Eh, might as well talk to Luciana in order to kill some time. Besides, you haven't really said much to her since that dance."Hey, Princess Luciana," you say as you take a seat beside her. "How've you been enjoying the party?""How kind of you to ask," Luciana giggles. "Look Mother, he's -such- a gentleman!""Not something I'd expect from someone who Gregory's actually fond of, but I suppose you're right," Lisette replies as she looks you over. "Though I hope this isn't just an act you're putting on because you're in front of her mother..""Mr. Reinhold is on his best behavior all of the time," Luciana replies."And I've had quite a lovely time at Emilio's party thanks to you," Luciana says, winking at you. "I suppose it's been a good day for both of us...""Um, you're welcome?" you reply."Aww, you're so modest!""And rest assured, I'll be the one cheering for you the -loudest- during tomorrow's duel," Luciana says as she glances over at Nicolette's table and flashes a sly grin."Tone it down, nobody likes an overeager girl," Lisette says, poking her daughter in the side.>[1/?]
>>29484370Wow, what a cunt.
>>29484370Hehehe, I like the queen.

Rolled 2>>29484370This is not a competition for Rein's affection and attention.This is a competition to one up each other.
>>29484478Yes. This post was clearly entirely serious.
>>29484494As was mine.
>>29484370The rest of the party goes on without incident, with Marianne spending the rest of the time with her father (and Thierri is in face an EXCELLENT dancer), Luciana sticking to you like glue, and your other friends talking amongst themselves for the rest of the time.You were half-expecting Monique to show up and trashtalk you, but surprisingly enough he actually didn't! Though that's probably more out of fear of Sir Gregory than any politeness on his part.But whatever. Whatever the reason may be, it's always nice to have less trouble to deal with.After a while the baby gets fussy and so Sir Gregory returns her to the Queen, the two making a quick retreat from the hall before she starts screaming... and much to Elena's annoyance, she's dragged away as well as the Queen mumbles something about it being past her bedtime.>[2/?]
I can see the ending!
>>29484562We are in a time-loop. We must repeat the party until the universe stabilizes.
>>29484562But the party never ends!
>>29484562You lie! There are at least 3 more episodes of Namek!
>>29484583I got you babe.
>>29484550COME ON ARCHELON, MY LIBRARY CLOSES IN LESS THAN AN HOUR
>>29484590If the trip to Marconetti is Namek, is our duel with Monique going to be our fight with Freeza? Does that mean mean that the party was the Ginyu Force?
>>29484550>[3/?]The party officially ends at 9PM, the same trumpeter from before making the announcement for everyone to start filing out of the hall. You notice that the people who you personally know seem to be the last ones to leave, with Marianne and her father heading out a back exit apart of the crowd while Sir Gregory takes his sweet time to wait for everyone else to get ou before finally deciding to stand up himself.Unfortunately, Agnes leaves maybe a halfhour before the party's official end, saying something about wanting to beat the traffic. While you are a bit disappointed that she couldn't stick around longer, you can't exactly blame her......in the end, the only ones left at the table are you, Sir Gregory, Nicolette, Sylvie, Melanie, Rana, Luciana, Takamaru and Sylvie."Umm... it's kind of late but I'd still be up to that magic lesson if you wanted..." Sylvie says, fidgeting as she walks up to you."Magic lesson?" Luciana repeats with a rather surprised expression. "There's no need to bother Sylvie for that, I'd be -more- than happy to show you myself...">ask the glasses>ask the princess>forget the lesson, you'd rather bother [insert character here]

>>29484685>>ask the glasses"Thanks but Sylvie has been my teacher this whole time."
>>29484685Well why not both of you?
>>29484685>ask the glassesWe sorta already promised.
>>29484685>Both! Because that can't turn out bad!
Asking them both is one of the dumbest suggestions we could make. They will both feel awkward and Reinhold will feel even more awkward.
>>29484740But anon, I want all the cakes.You can't make me choose a cake.That's just wrong.

>>29484685>ask the glasses
>>29484685>Practice for tomorrow.
>>29484685>>ask the glassesAll waifury aside, it's kind of a dick move to ask someone to teach you something and then jump ship at the very last moment because another opportunity came up.Especially since asking Sylvie's been teaching us since day one.also Celestino would fucking murder us if he found out that on top of everything else, we're covertly meeting up with Luciana in the dead of night AND encouraging her in her magic studies at the same time>>29484720Maximum lewd.>>29484740As amusing as it might be, even Reinhold probably recognizes this as being a recipe for, if not disaster, at least mild awkwardness.
>>29484685>Other"Well, if you're both that interested, how about we work together; you can compare notes!
>>29484685>ask the glasses
>>29484685"Sylvie's been my magic teacher this past month and she's been taking the task quite seriously, besides I already asked her to teach me healing magic tonight after...well the why isn't important. Though if you've any spells you think would be beneficial for me to learn another time, Princess Luciana, I would be happy to take you up on the offer,"Be diplomatic, act like you don't realize both girl's intents.We may not be dense but we can play like we are to avoid being caught between two unstoppable forces.
>>29484685>ask the glassesThere's no fucking other option.
All these people wanting to betray Sylvie when she's been teaching us all this time. This is not even about romance. How much more of a dick can you be?
>>29484685>ask the glassesAsking both is a horrible awkward idea...
>>29484788>How much more of a dick can you be?I don't know, but I'm willing to find out.
>>29484685>ask the glasses
Sylvie is the last girl i'd want among these girls as Reinhold's lover but this is something else. Betraying Sylvie here so such a dick move. She tought him with dedication all this time.
>>29484710This, going with the princess would be full retard here.
>>29484784I'll toss my support behind you.
>>29484788I just don't think Rein is the kind of guy who would reject any of them on their offer, so it fits for him to ask both of them to help out.
>>29484774>also Celestino would fucking murder us if he found out that on top of everything else, we're covertly meeting up with Luciana in the dead of night AND encouraging her in her magic studies at the same timeYeah, that's also kinda worrisome.
>>29484685>>ask the princess
>>29484710>>29484720ThisDon't blow off Sylvie, but it seems like Luciana could give Reinhold a few magic lessons at some other time.
>>29484685>>ask the glasses
Completely dumbstruck, Sylvie just stares at Luciana as if she'd just slapped her while Sir Gregory seems to be getting ready to do... something.You decide to do something too, before this situation turns ugly."I'd actually already asked Sylvie for the magic lesson," you say to Luciana. "Sorry about that.""Y- yes, he did," Sylvie says, finally having regained her composure. "And this isn't the kind of thing that requires more than one teacher, you know.""Very well, maybe some other time," Luciana says, defeated. Since Marianne's gone, I guess I'll call it a night here," she sighs. "I'll see you all bright and early tomorrow morning, Reinhold... Uncle Gregory... -everyone else.-"Motioning for Takamaru to follow her, Luciana quickly disappears through a back exit, leaving the rest of you to your own devices.
>>29484899...I do not want to be caught in between their eventual magic cat fight...Even Reinhold can feel the palpable aura of conflict between the two of them.
Rolled 1>>29484914The shitstorm is abrewing.And its not going to be pleasant as it drags in bystanders like gregory.
>>29484914Getting caught between their catfight sounds like an excellent way to defuse said fight, actually. Neither of them want to hurt Reinhold.
Sorry Luci, I love you the (second) most, but that was just so blatant that even Rein's mild case of density couldn't ignore the fact that you just tried to turn something that should have been completely unrelated into a skirmish over our affection.
>>29484914I'd like to say that sylvie would win, but I don't know if she's had any actual combat experience outside magical sparring, whereas luciana has actually flat out killed bitches.
>>29484937We just hit page 10
>>29484937Yes. It is our duty to guard the world from this clash of titans.
>>29484958I wonder what Celestino would do if we went up to him and asked how to not get torn apart in the battle between his and Vincents daughters.Because we didn't ask for this.
>>29484965Well she held her own against Niklaus semi-decently magically, and let's not forget that Vincent didn't even let her touch magic until he was confident she could beat motherfuckers up with her fists.Luciana's only saving grace is a willingness to go as far as needed, and possibly all sorts of horrors from her grimoire collection.
That's it for this thread, guys.Next one will be tomorrow night, as per he usual.As always, thanks for playing!
>>29484974Luciana tries to make Sylvie talk to the hand, Sylvie punches the shit out of the hand.
