You let Meloetta be for a minute as the director approaches you. You can see Dave, the cameraman, changing the battery pack on his camera."Just beautiful," the director compliments. "We'll be getting to broadcast as soon as possible."Well, that's good news. The sooner that your show gets on the air, the sooner you'll get enough revenue to get Robin's new eye. You look at your girlfriend and sigh in contentment. You're almost there. You'll make it right, just like you promised.A figure bursts out from from the surrounding trees. A Nidoqueen, a Muk, and Prince Arledge. He frowns when he sees how peaceful everything is. “I came as soon as I could sneak away. I guess that wasn’t soon enough, though.”“Sorry,” Vance shrugs. “Action’s over.”Arledge freezes and his eyes go wide. “What... what Pokemon is that?” He points to Meloetta with one hand, and reaches for a Pokeball with the other.>Doesn’t he know? It’s the legendary Meloetta!>Keep him occupied. Tell him it’s not important. Thank him for coming to help>Tell him in no unclear terms not to attack Meloetta>Something else
>Tell him in no unclear terms not to attack Meloetta
Lucky I'm too sick to lift the pike, turkey. On with the show!

>>39245318>Tell him in no unclear terms not to attack MeloettaI don't hate the prince but he can't fuck this up for us.
Not Hyping up for Meloetta so she gets the attention she craves.
>>39245537>watching her get caught by some douche
>>39245318>Tell him in no unclear terms not to attack MeloettaI missed you Gobble!
“That’s Meloetta,” you step between them. “She’s a friend, and nobody is going to attack her.”You saw how his eyes went wide when you said that name. He probably knows who she is, but didn’t believe it. He looks like he’s really thinking, but eventually he relaxes his shoulders. “A friend, huh?” He offers a polite bow.Meloetta looks happy to receive the attention.You make your way back to the palace where the rest of the royal family comes to greet you. Meloetta follows at a distance.Beatrix comes running over, holding her dress up with both hands. “What happened?”Guile appears from seemingly nowhere and grabs the prince by the ear. “I told you to stay with everyone else!” He let’s go. “I do have to admit, I’m impressed with how you slipped away. I suppose some of my training is getting through after all. But if you ever pull a stunt like that again...”Clair leans against the prince, keeping her eyes closed. “He’s already thinking about how he’s going to sneak away from you lecturing him.”Guile grabs the prince by the ear and pulls him away. “Try it twice in one day? I’m getting old, not blind. In my day...”“Why!” Arledge moans to Clair as he’s hauled off.She just grins and waves.(continued)
>>39245845You and your friends fill Beatrix in on what happened. From the conversation, you can tell that the king has already told her you’re not related.“Thank you for protecting our island.” She curtsies. “Perhaps I could reward such a valiant feat?” She glances back at her mom and dad. The king nods. She turns back to you. “Defense of the realm usually results in a knighthood.”You? A knight? Judging from her tone, she’s being serious. It wasn’t really that much work though. Looking at how well defended the palace is once the guards have had time to gather, you’re sure they would have been fine without you.>That’d be great! Accept.>Politely decline. You don’t feel like you earned it.>Meloetta is the real hero(not really true). She should get it instead .>Your friends did all the fighting. They deserve it more.>Something else
>>39245877>Your friends did all the fighting. They deserve it more.>Meloetta is the real hero(not really true). She should get it instead .
>>39245877>That’d be great! Accept.>Meloetta is the real hero(not really true). She should get it instead .>Your friends did all the fighting. They deserve it more.We all fought for it, we earned it. It's not like they're just giving us a gift for no reason here.
>>39245877>Your friends did all the fighting. They deserve it more.
>>39245877> Your friends did all the fighting, they deserve it more
>>39245877>Have our group (and Meloetta) be knighted, since we all defended the kingdom together.
>>39245877>>Your friends did all the fighting. They deserve it more.>Meloetta is the real hero(not really true). She should get it instead .
>>39245877>>That’d be great! Accept.
>>39245877>Politely decline. You don’t feel like you earned it.>Your friends did all the fighting. They deserve it more.
>>39245877>That’d be great! Accept.
>>39245877Decline. Titles tie you down.
>>39246274We've already built a tie here anyway. If the royal family asks us for help at some point in the future, we'll help. A title only means more recognition and a nice ceremony for our spectators.
>>39246365There's a difference between doing a favor for a friend and a contractual obligation punishable by potential imprisonment and/or Arceus knows what should we breach it.
>>39246409Ceremonial knighthoods don't actually have those obligations.
“My friends did all of the fighting.” You gesture to Robin, Jeanine, Vance, Clair and finally on Meloetta. “They deserve it more.”“Then I’ll knight you all!” Beatrix looks excited. “This is going to be so awes-” She catches herself, feeling the eyes on her from her parents, the guards, and the servants. “It would be most delightful.”“It would be a pleasure,” the king announces from behind. “And our honor.”“Hmm? Oh. Yes.” The queen is staring off into nothing. It looks like she’s taking this pretty hard.Before you can say anything, Beatrix grabs a sword from a guard and brings it about, almost hitting you. “Sorry!” She can barely contain her excitement. “I need you to kneel for this part.”Vance takes a knee. “Here? Now?”You, your friends, and Meloetta are bowing. A guard takes the large sword from Beatrix and offers her a much lighter, smaller one. Beatrix taps Vance on both shoulders and has him recite an oath.“Omigosh,” Jeanine mutters under her breath. “I can’t wait to tell my mom.”This time it’s Vance and Robin that give her a glare. The queen looks like she heard that.It’s your turn. Beatrix taps you on your shoulder with the sword. “Do you promise to protect the weak, act nobly in all endeavors, eschew unfairness, meanness and deceit, and never refuse a challenge from an equal?”>You do>Politely back out. This isn’t your thing>Offer an alternative vow>Something else
>>39246591>Break down crying.>Family isn't yours.>Can't have.
>>39246591>You doMight as well rid ourselves of our thieving past.
>>39246591>I can promise the protect the weak part, the other stuff istoo often necessary for that
>>39246591>Politely back out. This isn’t your thingor>>39246731Everyone voting for swearing that is lying bullshit, because there is no way we are never going to use decption again.
>>39246591>Offer an alternative vow>>39246731This one
>>39246591That reminds me. If Claire can scramble someone badly enough they think tgey're a Caterpie, could she go into the Queen's mind and find a way to gather clues about the missing princess from the queen's recollection?
>>39246591>Politely back out. This isn’t your thing>Kat >never lying againYeah, no.
>>39246591What >>39246731 said and>I've been a thief and a liar since I was young, for honesty would never have saved me at the orphanage I grew up in. Even now, kneeling before you, I can't let go of what I was so easily.
>>39246591"Sometimes the noble soul must do ignoble things in the pursuit of justice."
>>39246731>>39246591>Offer an alternative vowSupporting something like this.
>>39246591>>39246841I'll back just this.
>>39246862That doesn't sound much like Kat.
>>39246591>Offer an alternative vow>I promise to use my deception, unfairness and meanness to the purpose of defending the weakand>>39246731>>39246841>>39246862Those sound way too highstrung for something Kat would say.
>>39246898Edit for character, of course.
>>39246647>>39246692>>39246772>>39246758All those fucking liars.
>>39247003It's not like we do illegal or unethical stuff without good reason now. We could manage to uphold that vow.
>>39246591>Offer an alternative vowSomething more suited to our idosyncraties.
>>39247068Except it asks us to eschew deceit and unfairness, not eschew deceit and unfairness except for good reason.
>>39247068We still do it, and will continue to do it.Its basically expecting a Paladin oath from someone Chaotic Good who just recently transitioned from Chaotic Neutral.
Guys, you're over analyzing this, there's no magic in the oath that's going to force us into some course of action, nor is it binding, we're just making a little girl who looks up to us as a big sister happy.
>>39246591>Politely back out. This isn’t your thing"I'm... not that kind of person."Also why would a place that had this kind of knighthood also have a gym that specializes in deception?
>>39247201Samurai and ninja.
>>39247187Then come up with an alternate oath that isn't a blatant falsehood. Also did you forget that we're gonna have a tv show? She's gonna know we're lying fairly easily. Think it through.
>>39247187No anon, some of us just want Kat to have dignity and integrity and not swear shit she knows she isn't going to follow.
>>39247201By having the gym leader not be a knight.
>>39247251So because of dignity and integrity you're avoiding an oath for the same, because Kat has neither?
>>39247236Why would I bother? I'm fine with taking the oath.
>>39247297OH THE IRONING
>>39247297You can have integrity and dignity while still lying and playing unfair. The two things aren't related.
>>39247297So you would want us to throw the little of it she has away?For what purpose exactly?
“I can promise the protect the weak part, the other stuff is how I do it. It’s how I’ve always done it. I've been a thief and a liar since I was young. Honesty didn’t work out for me at the orphanage I grew up in. I’d be an even bigger liar if I pretended that wasn’t who I am.”There’s an uncomfortable silence as you stare down at the floor.You feel a tap on your other shoulder. “Then rise.” The princesses smiling face greets you. “I dub you Kat, the knight of Righteous Dishonesty.”Your friends and Meloetta all go through a much more basic vow. To your surprise, Clair backs out. “Not really my thing. But thanks.”The ceremony breaks and things because a lot more casual. Servants and guards go back to their duties. The king comes forward and the queen follows, if robotically.“I suppose you’ll be off to continue your journey,” he says. “I’m...sorry things didn’t turn out as we had hoped.”“Me too,” Beatrix says. “I really wanted a big sister.”There’s another awkward moment as the queen finally looks directly at you for the first time since she heard the news. She doesn’t seem to be able to find any words.>You wish it were true too>Promise the queen you’ll find her missing daughter>Hug her. Just pretend for a minute>Leave before it gets even more awkward>Something else
>>39247394>Hug her. Just pretend for a minute
>Hug her. Just pretend for a minuted'aww
>>39247394>Promise the queen you’ll keep a eye out if you ever find something out about her missing daughter>Hug her. Just pretend for a minuteWe can't promise we'll find her, but we can try.
>>39247394>Hug her. Just pretend for a minute>Promise the queen you’ll keep a eye out if you ever find something out about her missing daughter
>>39247394>>Hug her. Just pretend for a minute
>>39247394>Hug her. Just pretend for a minuteEh, it's sweet.
>>39247394>Promise the queen you’ll find her missing daughter>Hug her. Just pretend for a minute
>>39247394>Hug her. Just pretend for a minuteFucking hug her.
Sorry that I can't stay up with you tonight Gobble but here are some butts for you.
>>39247632That butt looks like a fly's head
>>39247663Last one and I'm off to sleep.
>>39247632>>39247663>>39247699Captcha says ssmut
>>39247394Tell the queen that she shouldn't loose hope, that her daughter could maybe still be alive, and that if you find ANYTHING out through your travels you'll check it out.And you'll deliver Hornbeam to her in a gift box.
>>39248029Sorry. Working through some reallly lovely medication.
You hug Queen Josephine. A second later, you feel her arms come around you. It’s warm and safe and you know she’d never let anything bad happen to you.She’s muttering something as she holds you. You can barely make it out. “I’m so sorry.”You hold her tighter. Feeling her warmth, her protectiveness, her caring. You feel 16 years worth of it as you try to hug some of it back. Life owes you this.Like all good things, it comes to an end. You both break it up as tears are wiped away and clothes are straightened. “I promise I’ll keep an eye out.”“Thank you,” her voice is still broken. “Thank you.”“You’ll come back and visit some time, right?” Beatrix looks up at you hopefully.You muss up her hair. You know it’s not really proper, but it just feels right. “I will.”She leaps into your arms and hugs you. Her fluffy dress softens it as you feel your organs being crushed. She’s really excited.“You’d better hurry if you’re going to catch the next ferry back,” the king says. “We’ll have a place for you here should you wish to visit for a day, or much, much longer.”You say your goodbyes as you’re escorted away from the palace. You see the king and Guile discussing Hornbeam as you’re leaving, but you don’t make out exactly what they’re saying. Part of you wants to stick around, but you figure they probably need some time to decompress after everything in their own ways.“We don’t have that much time before the next ferry,” Vance says, “but we could make a quick trip somewhere if there’s anything anyone wants.”The Pokemon center is on the way, right by the dock. Besides that, you think about anything else you might want to do before leaving.>Just the quick stop at the Pokemon center>You want to stop by a shop really quick (specify)>Visit the hunting grounds quickly (write-in)>You’re fine with your current Pokemon and everything else. Spend time training (Specify)>Something else
>>39248182>>Just the quick stop at the Pokemon centerAfter that big fight, deffo.
>>39248182>Just the quick stop at the Pokemon center
>>39248182Get a pic with the royal family and your family.
>>39248182>>Just the quick stop at the Pokemon center
>>39248182> Just the quick stop at the pokemon center
You stop at the Pokemon center. This one was pretty quick. You hand your precious Pokemon over to the nurse and your friends do the same. You have a short time to wait. Just long enough to be boring, but too short to do anything much.You stretch out on the couch. It’s been a hectic day. No, week. No, month. No, it’s just been hectic since you left on your journey, really. You’ve gotten so much, but it’s been almost non stop. You wonder what your plan is for when this is all over. You look at Devon’s pokeball and lose yourself in thought.Robin plops down beside you. “How are you doing?”“I’m okay,” you tell her as she snuggles in against you. You can actually see the docks from the window here. It’s nice.“I’m glad,” she yawns. “My brave knight.”You let out a small chuckle. “You’re a knight too now, y’know.”She doesn’t respond. You look down and see she’s already fallen asleep.Clair sits down next to you on the other side. “I’m telling Vance tomorrow morning. Before the deadline. I think he’ll be in a better mood about it.”You glance at her sideways. “Why do you say that?”She stretches. “They’re going to do it.”You look back and Jeanine flirting heavily with Vance. He’s look extra confident.“I’ve been using my subtle, masterful social skills. Just my social skills,” she looks at you meaningfully. “And it’s going to happen. He won’t care as much when I tell him tomorrow. He won’t hate me forever, right?”>She shouldn’t get her hopes up>Vance is forgiving. You’re sure she’ll be fine>She should tell him before tonight, in case he has problems or something>You’ll go with her tomorrow when she tells him for moral support>Something else
>>39248613>>Vance is forgiving. You’re sure she’ll be fineVance is a bro.
>>39248613>Vance is forgiving. You’re sure she’ll be fine
>>39248613>Vance is forgiving. You’re sure she’ll be fine>You'll go with her if she needs you to.. or you can be nearby.

>>39248613>Vance is forgiving. You’re sure she’ll be fine>You’ll go with her tomorrow when she tells him for moral support
>>39248613Bang her like a Belly Drum.
What is she going to tell him? I missed something.
But what happened to Mellette?
I only just realized Robin's dad is the next gym leader we've gotta take, fuuaark.
>>39249080No he isn't, he isn't even a gym leader anymore nor is his former gym the closest.
>>39248947She mindfucked him into being insecure as fuck for most of his life.
>>39248947She's a horrid bitch who broke his brain when he was young.
>>39249102Oh yeah, he moved on to the League right?I forgot.Who's next then?
>>39249144Fairy or electric gym.
You look at your large friend, Vance. Whatever Clair did to his head to make him insecure about girls, Jeanine seems to be breaking down. You guess it just took the right girl and a lot of persistence.“Vance is one of the most forgiving people I know. I’m sure you’ll be fine.”Clair considers your words. “Yeah. You’re right. He is a doormat, isn’t he?” You can tell from her tone she doesn’t really mean that. Probably.“I’ll be there for moral support,” you tell her. “Just in case.”“Gfg-me too,” Robin mumbles, apparently awake. She reaches out and grabs Clair’s hand, bringing it to yours. Robin squeezes both together in a show of support.Clair smiles and blushes for a second before catching herself and taking her hand away. “Alright. Don’t get all gay on me again.”“Why not? You liked it last time.” You wink, having a little fun.“M-maybe she only likes us ‘getting gay’ on her when she’s naked,” Robin teases, still half asleep.Holy crap. Robin teased! Probably due to her being tired and fed up with Clair using ‘gay’ in a derogatory way.Clair looks as shocked as you probably do. “What?” She lets out a nervous guffaw. “Are you double teaming me now?” Only after the words leave her mouth does she realize her mistake. “Don’t. Don’t even. That’s too easy.”“So is making you-” You stop as you see the ferry at the dock through the window. “Boats here!”You and your friends scramble to collect your Pokemon. You all rush down to the docks. Meloetta seems to be following, but avoiding being seen by anyone elseBefore you arrive, you see Arledge. He’s wearing a shoddy cloak, trying not to be noticed in the light misty drizzle.>Say hi>Point him out to the crowd>Leave him alone. He’ll talk to you if he wants>Something else
>>39249144Fairy is next.
>>39249113>>39249139Care to elaborate?Or at least point me to what quest # this was explained in the archive.
>>39249231>Leave him alone. He’ll talk to you if he wants
>>39249236There is really nothing to elaborate. Thats basically what happened.Dunno what thread it originally came up in, one of those during/after the gym match with her she told us.
>>39249231>Say hiI'd leave him alone if he just wanted to talk to us, but I'm not 100% he isn't trying to catch Meloetta.
>>39249267Was there a reason she did it?
>>39249303>>39249139>She's a horrid bitch
>>39249303Vance was the only thing she had resembling a friend, so when he matured and girls started taking up a bunch of his time, she fucked him up to bring him down to her level.
The five of you shuffle onto the ferry. You pretend not to notice the prince coming aboard as well. He looks relieved that you haven’t outed him. He quickly goes into a private room on the ship as soon as he’s let aboard.Well, if he does want to talk, he doesn’t want to this second. You guess that makes sense. It’s still light out and people are active right now as they board.This ship is pretty roomy for the price of the tickets. It moves slow though. You won’t be back on the mainland until tomorrow morning.Looks like you have some time on your hands.>Look for a battle>Train a Pokemon (specify)>Play with your Pokemon>Study.

You head into your room with Robin and practice your flute. Robin takes out the one you gave her and joins it. She’s still not nearly as good as you, but by reminding her of the basics, you set yourself back on course. You feel like you’ve been messing up when it’s really important lately, so getting this down is important.Meloetta seems to have let herself into your room. You’re not sure how she got here, but she’s a welcome guest. She sings a soft harmony, complimenting the ancient tune you’re working on from the pictures you took of that scroll.[Thanks to your previous efforts and your hard work today, you now roll 4 dice instead of 3 for flute playing]“That’s catchy,” Robin says after you’ve wrapped up. “I like that song. It’s a lot like that lullaby my mom used to hum.”She’s right, now that you think about it. There are a lot of similar chord progressions.Meloetta cocks her head up at you, taking you out of your thoughts. You pat her on the head. “You were great, as always.”She happily accepts your praise and starts wandering off. She seems to be sticking around, but only popping in when she wants.Jeanine pops into your room. “Hey guys, just checking in.” She takes her time, looking around the cramped ship room. “Not a lot of space in here, huh? So, are you busy? Want to meditate? Get a new aura reading? Just hang out?”Jeanine’s acting a little weird. Maybe she’s just bored.>Get an aura reading. It might be interesting to see if you have any changes>Meditate, maybe bring Devon out>Just chat for a bit. Hang out>Let’s go hit up the casino!>Get pampered at the ship’s spa.

>>39250327>Jeanine’s acting a little weird.She just got shut down hard by Vance.Should probably just>Just chat for a bit. Hang out
>>39250327>Get an aura reading. It might be interesting to see if you have any changes>Just chat for a bit. Hang outI have a feeling things didn't go so well with Vance. Give her something that she's good at doing and then ask for details.
>>39250656>>39250402Nah she's getting ready for later. Trying to kill time until it's night time. It's only evening now.
>>39250771Yeah, looks to me that for all her confidence, she gets pre-lewd nerves like everyone else.
>>39250327>>Get an aura reading. It might be interesting to see if you have any changes
“An aura reading sounds fun.”“Oh! Me too!” Robin looks excited. “If that’s okay.”Jeanine laughs. “Of course.” She crawls onto the bed next to the both of you. “It’s been awhile since we’ve just done stuff together. This will be fun.”She concentrates on you first. Before she gets a reading though, she asks Robin to turn off the lights.You sit in silence, hearing yourself breath. It’s a little unnerving. Jeanine’s fingers move over your palm, then she taps you on the forehead. “Wow. You’ve really changed.”“I have?”“Yup! Your aura is a little different now. Much closer to Dark and Fire.”Huh. “Does that have anything to do with Devon and mega-evolution?”She nods. “A bit. You two seem really close. It’s also a reflection of your attitude. Poison isn’t bad. No type is. It’s just a different outlook on life. Fire is more direct. More bright. The Dark typing is misunderstood too. It’s sneaky, but that’s not bad. A lot of people, Pokemon, and other things need to be clever and stealthy to get by.”(continued)
>>39251112You think about that while Jeanine reads Robin. After a few minutes, she comes up with a report. “Fairy, very strong. That’s not surprising.” She concentrates for another few seconds. “Bug.”“Bug?” Robin repeats.“Bug,” Jeanine confirms. “Bug types can be indirect, clever in their own way to make up for other weaknesses, diverse, and underrated. Good at taking down psychics, but you already know that.”You and Robin share a look. Robin does have a way of undermining Clair.“Let’s hit the spa,” you tell the two girls. “Get pampered.”You don’t have to tell them twice. They both readily agree and you and your Pokemon quickly get settled into the spa. Before you know it, you’re covered in hot towels, being catered to. It’s good to have money. Your Pokemon seem to be enjoying it too. Destiny bubbles as a machop massages her. Devon seems apprehensive at getting his nails attended to, but relaxes when he sees how laid back you’re being.Jeanine leans back. “This was a great idea. Especially considering tonight. I think it’s going to be special.” She glances over to you and lowers her voice. “I finally wore Vance down,” she confesses. “I don’t want to stereotype that all guys are just sex crazed and want to go at it all the time, but I’ve never met anyone like Vance who’s so... reserved. I was starting to worry he didn’t really like me.”You’re not sure if she’s fishing for a compliment, just chatting, or feeling insecure. You know exactly why Vance hasn’t been all up in that yet.>Change the subject>She should know what Clair did to Vance’s head. Tell her.>Vance is just old fashioned. You know how it is>Something else
>Change the subjectGotta wait

>>39251170>>Vance is just old fashioned. You know how it isHe'll get better with experience either way.
aaand we're back
>>39251346Is this the real life?
You decide to change the subject. You don’t want to start any drama and accidentally sabotage things. “So, how are things with Houndour and the other Pokemon?”She relaxes. “Great. She’s really opening up to me. I think she’s burnt out on high pressure battling. No pun intended. We’ve been doing some meditation exercises.”“I’m really glad,” Robin says. “Ditto is doing great too. He loves battling.”The three of you chat for the rest of the time at the spa. Feeling pampered, clean, and as beautiful as can be, you leave. Robin kisses you on the cheek and tells you she’ll be in your room.You bump into Arledge, still wearing his cloak. “Kat. Good,” he takes the hood off. “Remember what you said about the Lapras?”You nod. “Yeah. People wait for the in waters that belong to Lace Point to get around the ban on catching them.”“Exactly. My parents avoid the issue because they’re worried it’ll make things harder for me when I’m king if people see the royal family giving in to the mainlands ways. But this isn’t ideological. Lapras are endangered. That ban makes sense.”You’re starting to get the idea, but you want to confirm. “So you’re here to stop it?”“No. Maybe. I’m not sure. I brought a Lapras of my own. It’s been in the family for ages. Caught way before they became endangered. I came to see these poachers. If it’s bad, then what kind of king would I make if I ignored it?”You look out onto the waters as the sun starts to set. You’re close to the place where people were catching Lapras before.>Convince him to go stop it directly. He clearly wants to do it, he just needs a push>Convince him to lie low and go home as soon as possible. He should deal with these things when he’s actually king>Come on. You’ll go with him to confront the poachers>Convince him to try to sway public opinion so he can outlaw it in Lace Point waters down the road>Wish him luck on whatever he chooses
Well there's no way we're not doing it so>Come on. You’ll go with him to confront the poachers
>>39251356>>Convince him to try to sway public opinion so he can outlaw it in Lace Point waters down the roadOnly option that actually does anything
>>39251356>>Come on. You’ll go with him to confront the poachers
>>39251356>Convince him to try to sway public opinion so he can outlaw it in Lace Point waters down the road
>>39251356>Convince him to try to sway public opinion so he can outlaw it in Lace Point waters down the road"Stopping them with force will only piss them off, which could endanger your rule and encourage them to poach some more."
>>39251356>>Convince him to try to sway public opinion so he can outlaw it in Lace Point waters down the roadLet's choose the thing that actually accomplishes something.
>>39251356>Come on. You’ll go with him to confront the poachers>Convince him to try to sway public opinion so he can outlaw it in Lace Point waters down the road
He looks you in the eyes. Not getting an immediate answer, he tries to push passed you. “I’m going to stop them.”You put your arm out. "Stopping them with force will only piss them off, which could endanger your rule and encourage them to poach some more."“So what, I just stay here doing nothing until people change their minds?” He looks frustrated. “I can’t just sit around on this.”“So don’t do nothing!” This guy’s tone is really getting to you. “Spend your time convincing people that outlawing it is a good idea. Tell them there’ll be more Lapras later if you ban catching them now. You’re supposed to think about the big picture. Do the most good, not the quickest.”He kicks in frustration. “I hate it.” He paces back and forth. “When you first showed up I hoped so hard you weren’t my sister. Now I wish you were. Then you’d be the one that has to be patient. I could be going out, not a care in the world.” His gaze meets yours. “I didn’t think what kind of ruler I’d be before you came along and made me worried. I was just going to rule. Now it feels like a prison.”>Too bad. He’s got responsibilities and needs to learn to deal with it>If he feels like way, he should just let his sister rule>He’s just frustrated. Let it go.>Battle him to let off some steam>Something else
>Too bad. He’s got responsibilities and needs to learn to deal with it>Battle him to let off some steamAyyy
>>39251677>He’s just frustrated. Let it go.>Battle him to let off some steam
>>39251677>Too bad. He’s got responsibilities and needs to learn to deal with it
>>39251677>Too bad. He’s got responsibilities and needs to learn to deal with itDestroying what you hate with force will make you many enemies, and many enemies will cut your reign short. Be subtle with their destruction by swaying public opinion, so that you are revered as a good king, not a tyrant.
>>39251677>Too bad. He’s got responsibilities and needs to learn to deal with it>Battle him to let off some steamSTRESS WITHOUT AN OUTLET IS BAD
>>39251677>>Have a quickie with him in his room to let off some steam
>>39251793But anon, he is a disgusting testosterone bag.Impure.Unclean.
>>39251677>Too bad. He’s got responsibilities and needs to learn to deal with it>"This is how you repay the privilege of all the wealth and luxury you've grown up with. The Price of the freedom I have has been all these years of poverty and solitude. Is that a trade you want to make to set aside your responsibilities, Prince of Lapras?"
>>39251897That sounds pretty good, yeah.
“Too damn bad,” you push him in the chest. “You’ve got responsibilities. You need to start learning to cope with that. There's a price to pay for all that wealth and luxury you've grown up with. I paid for my freedom with years of poverty and loneliness. Is that really a trade you want to make?” You feel a little preachy, but you don't think many people spend a lot of time preaching to the young prince.He paces some more. “You’re right. I just hate not being able to do anything right now.”“I can get that,” your tone is still frustrated. He gets on your nerves, but you can sympathize. “How about we let off some steam?”He gives you a funny look. There’s a twinge of hopefulness that says way too much.“With a Pokemon battle!” You clarify, annoyed. Just as you’re saying that, Robin comes around the corner. “Are you coming to bed? Oh. Hello.”“Uh, hi,” he answers back. “So am I battling you, her, both of you, or what?”>He should battle Robin.>You’ll battle him>You’ll both battle him>You’ll take them both on>She should battle you and Arledge>Better not battle right now. It’s getting late and dark>Something else[Last vote for tonight]
>>39251972>You’ll both battle him
>>39251972>You’ll take them both on"Consider it a lesson in... Diplomacy or whatever. If you're cool with that, Robin?"
>>39251972>You’ll battle him
>You’ll both battle himMenage a troisBattle along side Robin again so she knows we don't think she sux
>>39251972>>You’ll battle him1v1 showdown
