[ERROR] No.28292385 [DELETED]  [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

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 learning a bit about your mentor Volker, wandering around the castle for a while and attempting to console a crying little girl, your and the others headed to your suite to wait for the servants to bring you your dinner.

>Congratuations, you are now a mangy DOG!
>While 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.

>"I asked for spaghetti, so it shouldn't take them too long..." Luciana says. "So, does anyone have any ideas as to what we should do while we wait?"

Hmm... you would suggest a card game or something similar, but there doesn't seem to be anything of that sort in this room. While trying to think of an activity to suggest, your mind drifts to something that Luciana mentioned earlier.

"So... grimoires?" you say to Luciana.
"Eh!? Wh-" Luciana stammers.
"Oh, so you picked up on that?" Marianne says, a slight smile forming on her face.
"Um, I'm sure that Reinhold was just mistaken..."

"Looks like the cat's out of the bag, Luciana," Nicolette says, clearly enjoying this.
"Whatever, it's not like you're going to tell anyone..." Luciana mumbles, defeated. "...and I hope you'll keep this to yourself too, Karel."
"Er- I wouldn't dream of blabbing about anyone's secrets!" Karel stammers, waving his arms in front of himself for emphasis.
"Just making sure," she sighs. "So yeah, I collect grimoires. Been doing so ever since Aunt Ariane gave me my first one when I was a little girl, and my collection's been growing ever since then."

"Most of them were written by old crazy wizards and the like so most of the spells they hold end up as Mantra that I can't decipher, but even those have a lot of useful information about spell theory and philosophy and the inner workings of the universe..." Luciana explains. "...I know that Father would absolutely lose his mind if he found out about my collection, so PLEASE don't mention it to anyone."

"Hey Sylvie, it looks like that's two things you have in common with Luciana now..." Nicolette says teasingly. "...you'd better step up your game though, you don't want your rival beating you in both of them!"
"Hm?" Karel says, turning to them. "Two things?"
"Yeah," she replies. "They're both total nerds about magic, and they're both TOTALLY into R-"

Nicolette's sentence is cut off by the sheer force of Sylvie punching her in the side, sending her flying off of the couch they were both sitting on, landing face-first onto the floor.

"M- Miss Nicolette, are you alright!?" Karel shouts as he rushes to help her up.
"Y- yeah, don't worry about it..." Nicolette replies with a painful laugh. "Just one of the hazards of having a best friend whose father is the God of Punching..."

After Karel helps her stand back up, Nicolette dusts herself off and sits back down next to her attacker.

"Oh my, Sylvie... I didn't know I had so much in common with you!" Luciana says, grinning slyly. "Feel free to come over to my room later, I'm sure that we'd have a lot to talk about..."

As Sylvie's face turns bright red while she starts to make an embarassed sqeaking sound, Marianne sighs and clears her throat.

"Alright, that's more than enough teasing," Marianne says in an exasperated tone. "Let's talk about something else. Karel, you seem to be about as far as it gets from accidentally stumbling on something embarassing..."
"Eh!? Me?" Karel replies.

Hey. I'm working on my own fanfic of this using an OC. So far it's a WIP. I'm not sure how much I want to play it Straight or Deconstruct/Subvert the tropes.

>I am Johnathan, canadian otaku/geek. Previously, I was a procrastinating, lazy (my GPA is only 2.8 /but/ I have an IQ of 114!), overweight, nerdy 18yo highschool student. But suddenly something happened and I ended up in another universe! Suddenly I was really athletic too! I was even a skilled sword user despite not having any fighting experience since I was a child, and it was never more lethal than "bloodied nose" anyway. Well, I guess a yellow belt in Karate when I was 7 counts.

>I joined the Royal Swordsmanship Tournament, and surprisingly, I won! The King was so impressed with my skill, he personally (/well/ not in-person) requested that I join the Royal Guard! Not bad for a no-life who was probably going to end up as a kissless NEET posting all day on /r9k/!

Perhaps the power balance is a result of many of the countries being founded around powerful entities like the sealed kings which would have eliminated the necessity to gain power through borrowing manpower from nobility in order to form and maintain such countries, leading to a tradition of much more centralized states unlike in feudalism in real life.

"I don't really think that I'm all that interesting..." Karel says bashfully.
"You mentioned that you've been training in swordsmanship for as long as you can remember, right?" you reply. "Why not talk about that?"
"Yes, that sounds like it would be interesting," Marianne joins in.
"Too bad Elena isn't here to listen on... this sounds like the kind of thing that she'd like," Nicolete sighs.
"Uh, alright," Karel says, sighing. "If you really want to hear about that, I guess..."

"So, um..." Karel begins. "My mother was always really into swords and that kind of thing, so she kind of pushed on me for as long as I can remember. She used all the money she earned as a waitress in my great-uncle's cafe to pay for the best tutors she could afford, and I spent most of my time training under them while she worked."

"So you're a swordsman solely because of your mother's wishes?" Melanie asks.
"Eheh... well, it was her idea at first but it's pretty much the only thing that I've ever wanted to do with my life too so I guess I've kind of internalized it?" Karel laughs.
"She must be proud to have such a dutiful kid," Nicolette remarks.

Good analysis. I'd also wager you'd start getting Charles XIV style distracting the nobles with pointless royal positions.

>> No.28293139

In Granache's case they seem to have a line of long-lived very good kings.
In that case it makes sense for power to concentrate towards them over time and for most of their vassals to have great respect for them.

>> No.28293147

That's exactly it.

>> No.28293154


Probably because us humans can gain not-insignificant power. It's not that hard to conceptualise, especially if it's a title gained on merit instead of through blood.

>> No.28293197

In Grananche the vast majority of the truly strong seem to be the kings supporters. Traditional feudal levees of the semi-competent would fair extremely poorly against people that capable, and worse for the nobility their levees would know it.

>> No.28293204

So the title "Knight" is not so much a social-political title as it is just another way to say "Hero" or "Champion"?

Very Arthurian. I dig it.

>> No.28293209

Probably the same reason as the centralization: You get very powerful creatures outside of normal nobility who can be promoted based on merit.

>> No.28293251

Yeah, the impression I'm getting from knighthood and promotion in general in this universe is one based on merit or deeds. Plus its always good to promote valuable service to support the kingdom through ennobling regardless of whether or not they can do without said support.

"So my mother paid the for the best tutors she could afford, mostly adventurers and the like," Karel says. "And as time went on and she took over the cafe when my great-uncle retired, we had more and more money to be able to afford to hire better tutors."

"Oh my, it sounds like she's put in almost as much work as you did in order for you to get this far..." Luciana says, genuinely impressed.
"She worked way harder than I did, actually," he laughs. "And even when my tutors weren't around, I trained in my free time... my mother was thinking about putting me into the dueling circuit when I got a little older, but then the King made the announcement for the tournament and that was way too good of a chance to pass up."

"Umm, if I'm not prying too much, was that at all similar to how you got started, Mr. Reinhold?" Karel asks.
"Me? Not really, no," you reply. "I don't have parents or anything like that, so I've been pretty much just working hard to get close to Volker's level of skill. When I was in the army, my CO said that I might as well enter the tournament so that's how I got here," you shrug.
"Oh," he says guiltily. "Sorry, I didn't know..."

Now if he had planned to use his sword skills to in the army and then become a knight that would be doing it to increases his social standing

Because really just joining the army doesn't mean shit for your social standing it just puts you one rung above spooge mopper at the whorehouse and probably not much further barring extenuating circumstances

"Excuse me?" a voice calls from the other side of the door. "Is this the Granache party? We've brought your dinner!"
"Ah, yes... just a minute!" Luciana says as she scurries towards the door and lets the servants in.

Assuming EXTRA FORMAL MODE due to Luciana's presence, the two butlers who've arrived with your food bow deeply before entering the room and then stop at the table.

"The princess specified that there are seven of you eating today, am I correct?" a butler says, rechecking to make sure that the number of plates that were prepared match the number of people in the room.
"Yes, that would be correct. Thank you," Luciana replies.

"Actually..." Karel begins, "...I actually need to get going now. Sorry that I can't have dinner with you, but I have some personal things to attend to," he says, bowing.
"Aww, what a shame..." Luciana pouts. "...well, I guess we'll see you later then?"

After Karel leaves the room, one of the butlers turns to Luciana.

"...so that makes six, then? I'll just take one of the plates back, then..." he says.
"No, that's fine," Nicolette says. "I'll have Karel's share too."
"Eh- Are you sure?" he asks. "There's a lot of food here..."
"Oh, don't worry about Nicolette," Luciana laughs. "Her appetite is legendary."
"Er- if you say so, Princess..."

The butlers quickly set the places at the suite's dinner table as everyone gets up from the couches and move to where the food is. The aroma of the spaghetti is mouthatering, and it's all you can do to keep from simply devouring it before everyone else has theirs.

"Would you happen to need anything else, Princess?" a butler asks.
"No, that would be all," Luciana replies. "Thank you."

Bowing once more, the butlers quickly exit the room with their cart, closing the door behind them.

Smelling this delicious spaghetti that sits before only serves to remind you that you haven't eaten a thing since breakfast this morning.

And it's 7:30 PM now.

Making a concerted effort to keep from eating before some else has already begun to do so, you turn to Marianne and Luciana as you notice then starting to eat.

"I'm sorry for the scene of debauchery that you're about to witness..." you say half-jokingly as you chow down into your food, unable to control yourself any longer.

As you enter DEVOUR mode, both Nicolette and Sylvie do the same as the others look on.

"I see that Reinhold shares the same healthy appetite as Nicolette and Sylvie..." she laughs.
"It does seem that way... unfortunately," Marianne sighs. "I suppose now I know how he hit it off so quickly with those two..."
"Oh, don't be like that," she replies, laughing. "Reinhold needs to eat up so he can grow up to be big and strong like your father!"
"Ugh..." she sighs. "And don't think that I haven't noticed that you dropped the 'mister' when referring to him now."
"Seeing as how he knows by true feelings now, I don't really think there's any reason to remain formal," she shrugs. "Besides, it's kind of weird referring to someone so close in age to me as 'mister.'"

Despite having two full plates of food, Nicolette finishes eating first, followed by you and Sylvie. Melanie and the two princesses are the last to clean their plates, what with being actual proper ladies and all.

"That was great," Nicolette exclaims happily. "I hadn't eaten a damned thing since the wee hours of the morning, so that really hit the spot."
"I'm glad to see that you're satisfied with our food," Luciana replies, smiling.

"And I see that you didn't save any for me," a male voice says from the direction of the door.

"Wha!?" you gasp, instantly hitting panic mode and turning to face the sudden intruder... and then you see that it's just Sir Gregory who had snuck in the room.
"Don't mind me, I'm just checking on things..." Sir Gregory says, running a hand through his hair.

"Oh, Uncle Gregory!" Luciana says happily. "If I'd have known that you would be joining us, I'd have saved a plate..."
"Eh, I was just messing with you," he replies. "I just came in here to say that Celestino and Thierri finally let me escape from Argument Hell and that Reinhold's free to do whatever."

"Huh?" you say, unsure what he means.
"These rooms are as safe as Marianne's room in the castle," Sir Gregory explains. "And once you guys tell me what room they stuck me with, I'll be sticking around there for the rest of the night so you can go off and live it up once she decides to call it a night."

"Ah, so we get to have some father-daughter time then," he smirks as he heads to the door. "And I'm sure that Reinhold doesn't appreciate my tresspassing on his lovely flower garden here, so I'll make myself scarce now."

Before anyone can muster up a witty comeback, Sir Gregory quickly exits the room.

"I haven't actually met him yet, but Citrine was saying that she wanted to introduce us to each other."

"If you want to come along, I honestly wouldn't mind," you say, shrugging. "No pressure or anything if you don't want to, though."
"N- no, that's okay-" Sylvie stammers. "I'm fine with-BWAAH!" she shouts as Nicolette suddenly pushes her forwards.

"She wants to come with you," Nicolette says, sighing. "She REALLY wants to, but she's an idiot and doesn't want to impose even though you clearly don't care.
"N- Nicolette!" Sylvie squeaks. "D- don't presume to-"
"Me and Melanie are going to go wander around now so you two have fun."
"H- hey, wait-" she calls back, but Nicolette's already pulling Melanie along with her down the hall.
"Have fun, you two!" Melanie waves goodbye.

Completely defeated, Sylvie slumps over for a few seconds and mumbles something that you can't make out at all before doing the longest sigh you've ever seen and standing back upright. She then starts to walk back to her room, but then stops and sighs yet again before finally turning around and approaching you.

"I never would have thought that I was actually dumber than Nicolette about this kind of thing..." Sylvie mumbles, "...sorry for wasting your time with my being stupid, let's go."
"Uh, sure," you reply.

As the two of you start down the hallway, it suddenly comes to mind that you don't actually know how to get to the battlements... but it's the roof and that means the stairs that go UP so you decide to just wing it.

"His reserves are that large?" you ask. "Then again, you said before that you had like ten times the base of normal people..."

Sylvie is shy, her best friend teases her and her cousin intentionally distances herself. Her dad is the Ur-magician, everyone else in the castle is powerful as hell magically, and she's only just started learning, even if people say she's gifted.

Then along comes a genuinely friendly, handsome, strong guy who specifically comes and asks *her* to teach him everything she knows about magic as though she's some elemental goddess, and then risks ticking off The Bloody Mist to *Bake her a Fucking Cake* and tries his damnedest to help her reconcile with her best friends.

"Sorry about the constant dead ends," you apologize.
"That's okay, just walking around like this is fun too," Sylvie says cheerily.

Great, she's not freaking out anymore!

"Since you said that it doesn't bug you if I asked and all," you begin, "what kind of spells do you think I ought to know?"
"Ummm..." Sylvie mumbles as she appears to start counting something on her fingers, "...you started learning kind of weird, so a lot of the basics like Iluminate and Enshroud and Heat Up kind of got left behind... Those may not be directly useful in the short-run, but they're the kind of things that are pretty handy when you need them."

"As far as stuff that'd be specifically useful for your job, um... you have Holy Shine for a defensive spell, maybe something like Shade Guard would be useful too. And I don't think you know any attack spells, right?" Sylvie asks.
"No the only spells I know are the ones you taught me," you reply.
"Ehehe, now I'm starting to feel kind of guilty..." she laughs. "I guess stuff like Arctic Blade and Fireball would be good for you. My father's punching spells don't work with a sword at all though, so those are kind of out of the question."

"But, umm... yeah," Sylvie says as she adjusts her glasses. "if you have anything like that you want to know about, just ask me and I'll look it up for you if you want. And again, it's seriously no problem at all for me to do so don't think you're imposing or anything."

I think Reinhold is still too traumatised subconsciously to start a relationship, and to some extent he is aware of this, just consider his responses in this thread to romantic suggestions.
However, we must determine who is he most likely to have fallen for already, from a strictly RP perspective, because the tension is reaching critical levels and we are increasingly likely to end up in a situation where we have to choose.

So I recommend that the shipfags go and masturbate while the RP people discuss the issue.

Let me say that I do not mean to disparage or dismiss the psychological impact of child molestation.

I do not think it would be fun or enjoyable to properly roleplay "getting over" no-no-bad-touch memories. At the pacing that PGQ goes, it would take more threads than most quests see in their lifetime to treat the issue as it deserves. It's more reasonable and better for the quest if he's basically over it already.

It's reaching critical levels OOC, but in character I don't think it's at a level we're he's developed feelings for one girl any more than another. I think he's just really confused romantically and doesn't know how to properly address his feelings so he just bottles it all up.

The stars in the sky combined with the close-to-full moon and the light reflecting off the planet's rings make for quite the lovely sight. You -almost- wish you could go up there and fly around yourself to get a closer view, but that's just silly.

"Oh wow..." Sylvie says. "...it's been a while since I was this high up at night..."
"The closest I've gotten to this is when I had guard duty back in the army, and I didn't really have the opportunity to just appreciate the view lik this," you reply.

As the two of you walk onto the roof proper, you hear footsteps approaching.

"Hey, what are you kids doing up here!?" a guard shouts.
"Er- we were just-" you begin to say, but Sylvie cuts you off.
"I'm Sylvie Roseline Granache and this is Reinhold. We're guests of King Celestino, and personal friends of Princess Luciana... she told us that we were free to roam the castle as we pleased, but were we incorrect in that assumption?" Sylvie says in an extremely formal tone.

"Granache- oh crap, that is right..." the guard says under his breath. "The King's brother-in-law and his group... er, sorry for bothering you, miss," the guard bows. "We just need to be careful seeing as how there's a lot of outsiders here in the castle for the next few days. I'll be over there if you need anything, so don't mind me..."

As the guard heads off to a far-off corner of the castle wall in order to give the two of you some space, Sylvie cracks her knuckles.

"Aah..." Sylvie sighs. "...I hate getting all formal like that, it doesn't agree with me at all."

"Yeah, it certainly looks different when you're all the way up here," you reply.
"I might as well take the opportunity while I can..."

Sylvie then stretches a bit before jumping straight onto the battlements and doing a little pose.

"Yup, still got it!" Sylvie says happily.
"Gaah- get down from there, it's all windy and you could fall!" you shout frantically, not having expected Sylvie of all people to do something this reckless.
"Don't worry about me, I'm perfectly safe up here..." she laughs, playfully sticking her tongue out at you.

She then turns her back to you to face the moon... and then begins chanting.

"Shining lights of the night sky, free me of my shackles so that I may soar to your boundless heights," she says as Script spins around her like an unfurling tapestry. "Starlight Wing!"

Sylvie then jumps in the air as a pair of eerily glowing white wings form on her back and lift her further up. You watch on as she shows off for a bit, doing several loops and spins before going up as high as she can and staying up there for a few minutes.
