Nodding slowly, and evidently used to
this sort of treatment, Koakuma leads you through the hallowed library
halls, lit only by ceiling chandeliers and giving a rather subdued and
quiet feel to the room as you proceed in near silence. You see fairy
maids occasionally returning books back to their original positions, and
some gathered around simpler books, although even their giggling is
quiet so as not to disturb the eerie serenity.
[ ] "So, how are you?"
[ ] "How is Miss Patchouli?"
[ ] "Hello? You know, you're very quiet."
[ ] "So, do you know anything about the maid who lives here?"
You remain silent, and Koakuma dutifully leads you to where Patchouli
currently sits, in the middle of one of the hallways in the musty
library. The sorceress does not bother to look at you, but merely raises
a finger for you to wait, before she places a bookmark inside of the
book and snaps it shut. She nods at Koakuma, who skitters away before
turning her attention to you.
"You. What do you want?" She asks bluntly, standing. ((DOUBLE CHOICE))
much as I wish we could learn magic, I think getting into Flandre's
head would be more effective in our ability to sweet-talk the majority
of Gensokyo women; or at least convince others to cover our asses.
Guys, we have one strength that nobody else here seems to
have; diplomacy. We seem to be able to sweet-talk our way out of
anything (Or into anything, hurhurhur). Let's capitalize on this for
now; we can learn Danmaku later.
your respectful address, she looks at you flatly. "You are Remilia's
guest, yes. But why should I teach you magic? Much less, you are human.
Give me an overwhelmingly good reason and I'll consider it." She coughs,
then crosses her arms and looks at you expectantly, although you doubt
she is holding her breath.
this will give us gar end. Just like in every show theres the main guy
that can't do shit for magic or technology but he's a muscle head so he
goes and punches everyone in the face and wins
If you want my advice, Anon, I would suggest walking outside and hopping
into the nearest body of water. Trust me, it will be far less painful
than anything anyone in that mansion could possibly do to you.
just keep doing whatever it is you think you're doing. Killing you and
giving you good advice aren't mutually-exclusive, you know. The lake
really is the way to go.
>>262490 ((Thank you, anon.)) Patchouli
looks unamused at your bravado. "Your self protection should concern
me, why?" She raises an eyebrow, looking back to her book and opening
it. "I'll give you one more shot at persuading me. I will probably
regret doing so, but alas."
"See, isn't that a better reason?" She smiles mockingly, before
returning to a sober frown. "Now, why should -I- teach you anything?"
She asks, opening her book back up and looking for the paragraph she
left off at.
We knew enough to get Cirno to not freeze us. We knew enough to butter
up China to let use into the mansion (nevermind that dumbass move of
trying to rush past her first). We even knew enough to not get
incinerated by Flan right off the bat.
So, WHY ARE WE FAILING WITH PATCHY SO BADLY?! Then
again, if we weren't painfully inept, we might actually still have two
of our continues as well as some shred of dignity from not getting our
asses killed by the fucking lake again and again.
>>262780 And didn't we actually WANT this girl at one time?
assholes, lemme point something out to you; this isn't some fucking VN
like Kanon or something where you can be mean to all but one girl and
still get a good ending. You HAVE to be intelligent and polite. A fuckup
here can lead to our deaths, and then we won't be able to have ANY fun
when this story ends. Jesus.
