Part 45: Final Bonding Events (Part 2) Virgo, Pisces, ScorpioBonding Update XXI: Final Bonding Events (Part 2) Virgo, Pisces, Scorpio
No CG for Mahiru, but I do remember her final event going on for a long fucking time. Although maybe that was just because I dont like her a lot. Lets find out.
~Star God Academy Classroom~
Howd you know? Did you use Star Energy?
Its just my intuition. You came to ask me to walk home with you, right?
It helps when the guy is a simpleton.
Seems like it could even surpass Star Energy.
But you have a bunch of stuff with you today.
Oh, this? I took some of the ingredients from the cafeteria. So I want to suggest something today. Will you hear me out?
Are you gonna cook for me?
So Im right then? A mans gut feeling can be pretty powerful too.
She just said that she borrowed a bunch of ingredients from the cafeteria. What the fuck else was she going to do with them? Throw them at Narcisstes? Because I would be on board for that.
But if you dont want me to, you can tell me.
I told you before, didnt I? Ill taste-test your cooking any time you want.
Whew Thats good.
I see some turnips, Granvania carrots, onions, and a flank of meat. So, considering the ingredients Youre making curry, arent you?!
I wanted you to try a new dish today, so I practiced any chance I got.
Well, as long as there are none of those Golden Apples in there, then its fine. Someone did tell you about the Golden Apples, right?
And The dorm Im at doesnt allow boys to enter, so can I go to your room?
Sure, youre more than welcome. I cant wait to try it out.
*Fade to black here, although Im pretty sure its just a scene change*
~Inn: Itsukis Room~
Itsuki, how many times have I come to your room now?
Youre here pretty often. You always come over to kick me awake.
How rude. I dont kick you, Im very gentle.
You jump on me every time.
I cant imagine that he does.
Having your childhood friend wake you up in the morning is like a rom-com.
So is Alfies route, except Alfies route doesnt have the lingering specter of incest.
Your room is always so clean, Itsuki.
I dont own anything, and I only come back here to sleep.
But there should still be dust. Is someone else cleaning it for you?
No way. The only ones who come here are you and Mana.
And Alfie and Yuzuha that one time.
What about the other Star Maidens?
They rarely stop by.
They dont want to get eaten by someone hiding smut mags under their bed.
Oh, youve said it now. If you doubt me so much, then check under the bed.
Id say go right ahead. Mirei probably already beat you to the punch somehow. She seems to have access to Itsukis porn stash, judging by her little question session a while back.
No way. If I did find something, itd get awkward.
Dont worry. Even if it gets awkward, Ill still eat all your delicious food. Speaking of, how about you start cooking soon?
Oh, look at the time Okay, you can go and get hungry now.
*Another fade to black happens, but I think its just a time skip*
Here you go! Mahirus special Chunks of Meat and Veggies in Gooey Demi-glace Stew! Eat up!
Dont mind if I do! *munch munch*! *chomp chomp*!
Oh, so alcohol is fine now, huh? Finally give up on those drinking PSAs?
Its delicious! *munch munch*! *chomp chomp*!
Did I recreate the Konatsuki-recipe right?
I think you did! *munch munch*! *chomp chomp*!
Okay, hes eating, we get it.
Hey, are you even tasting it?
*munch munch*! *chomp chomp*!
Thats a no.
Mahiru, can I have another?!
Oh, well Theres plenty, so eat up, Itsuki.
*Another fade to black*
That was good! So good, I totally overate!
You can now fill up hungry people anytime! Good job, me!
You seem rather excited.
Really? Im just acting like I normally do!
Speaking of which, you said you used red wine as a secret ingredient. I think Im getting a bit dizzy
It can do that? So this world has fucking Google now? You couldnt make long distance calls until a little while ago, but you can fucking check Granipedia for wine info?
This world doesnt make any sense.
What are you snooping around for ? Hey! D-Dont tell me! Youre looking for dirty videos right in front of a girl?!
He just told you what he was looking for. Also, this world has fucking porn sites?!
What?! You found a dirty video already?!
N-No Im talking about Granvanias different types of wines. It seems their alcohol content is pretty high. So even if you try cooking out the alcohol, a little always remains.
A different set of rules that are never clearly defined and change constantly.
*yawn* Say, Itsuki, do you think Im drunk?
To be honest, Im a little tipsy myself
I researched the wine too, but didnt think itd be like this.
Is Itsuki going to burst into flames now that he has committed the unforgiveable sin of breaking Japans minimum drinking age laws?
But it tasted great thanks to that, so Im satisfied.
I guess alls well that ends well.
Mahiru, its getting late, so how about you spend the night? You can use my bed.
Yeah, whats the big deal? We already did that with Yuzuha, and Farun, and Reone, and Sue, and okay, probably not the right time to be mentioning this.
I mean, if you wanna go there, weve been doing that forever now.
Its different back home Were all by ourselves here
There were times we were alone when your folks went on trips. Its okay. Ill sleep on the floor.
Thats not the problem Im going back.
Yeah, Itsuki sure does sound like hes trashed. Perfect speech and thinking clearly enough to know when its not a good idea to go out.
Just spend the night here, Mahiru.
Ugh Then Ill sleep on the floor.
Dont worry about me. I usually play games and end up dozing off on the floor anyway.
They have game sysActually, never mind. We already know about that from Mireis festival event. Carry on.
Well, do you wanna sleep together then?
*Mahiru wanders out of frame*
Mahiru, Im turning off the lights.
*The screen goes black at this point*
I-If we do sleep together
What? What rules are you referring to exactly?
I dont know.
Yeah. I dont know how Id handle that. Ill sleep right here. Good night, Mahiru.
Cousins, cousins talkin bout banging, oh yeahhh~
Your bed smells exactly like you Goodnight, Itsuki
Itsuki, good morning.
Never mind, I guess this scene is still going.
Morning Youre awake already?
I woke up pretty early, so I went out to take a walk. I didnt know they had morning stars in this world. They were so bright.
Guess I was sound asleep, huh.
I was going to head back in the middle of my walk
I like you, Itsuki. Now, and probably forever too. I have feelings for you. Even if we were to break the rules of Granvania
I wont let anyone say its the White Impuritys fault
*Theres a weird pause between lines here where the dialogue box disappears as if the scene has ended, but then it comes right back*
Thats all I wanted to say. So, shall we meet up at the academy?
Yeah. Lets do this again sometime.
There, finally. Scene. How long was that?
Word Count (All of these include the simple head image tags [not url] and my commentary)
Farun = 895 words
Mirei = 600
Ruka = 750
Femi = 680
Arie = 580
Alfie = 1,150
Mahirus? 1,400. Keep in mind that I was doing a fair amount of pondering in Alfies compared to the others. Mahirus event dwarfs all the other Maidens so far and I believe all of the Maidens that follow. Not sure why she got such detailed attention.
Anyway, lets just move on before Mahiru runs back on to screen and starts yammering again. Yuzuha is up next.
*The screen is black at the moment*
Yuzuha, Im coming in.
Man, the devs got a lot of mileage out of this CG.
Oh, Big Brother. No, Im fine. I was just about to nod off though Ill get up right now
*At this point the CG cuts and were in 3D model realm*
Yuzuha Did you take the medicine from Reone?
Y-Yeah It hurt a little, so I was laying down in my coffin. Its a medicine that keeps the drowsiness away Oh, but you already heard from Reone, right?
Ill try to hold out until you can go back to your world
Is there anything I can do ?
Its okay. Im doing this because I want to. Youve already given me so much So I dont want anything else.
I dont wanna go back to my world if it means sacrificing you
Please dont say that. You have to go back. Im sure you really want to.
Even the pain from the medicine is fine so long as I give in to it.
This route took a really depressing turn at the last second.
I really like you, but Ive given up on having my feelings reciprocated. Thats why I hoped to at least be helpful to you as a Star Maiden.
Big Brother ?
Dont give up on yourself Ill do anything for you, so please dont give up.
Big Brother. I gave up. I finally gave up I really thought I did That I couldnt live for very long To draw the outside world And my feelings of loneliness
Everyone having a good time with this one?
But But I just cant give you up! *sniff* *sniff* Waaaaaah!
You dont need to give up. You dont have to give up anything
But But I cant live for much longer. Even if you returned my feelings for you, itd be too sad
Yuzuha. Come to my world with me. It may be impossible to cure you of your illness if you stay here. But in my world, there may be a way to treat it.
Really? Is that really possible?
Fuck it, Ive always been the pessimist. Ill just go ahead and say it: The odds that doctors on Earth will have any fucking idea what to do with a girl suffering from magic fantasy death narcolepsy are slim to none. We definitely havent created any methods of removing the need for sleep permanently. I guess you could load her up on truckers speed and Red Bull, but thats only going to delay sleep for a couple of hours (not to mention it would completely destroy her health in other ways). Honestly, I think the odds are just as good that Reone or Mirei discover a way to treat the disease.
Yeah, Ill take you there. I promise.
Big Brother Ill go. Ill go to your world.
Its much better than simply giving up now
Yeah. Lets go together, Yuzuha.
*The CG cuts at this point and its back to 3D*
Ill be waiting for you. Until you find a way to return to your world. Ill cooperate in the ritual like I always do until then. Please let me do that. Is that okay?
Of course. Lets do this together, Yuzuha.
Oh well, I guess theres nothing wrong with wishful thinking in this case. Maybe Sora really does have some cure for that. Who knows?
Reone gets her second CG here. Her third one is part of the Flower Viewing event, which well get to eventually.
~Star God Academy Clinic~
Reone something smells sweet in here
That saves me the trouble of looking for you.
Were you gonna invite me to a snack party?
Unfortunately, I dont have enough for you. Im about to go to the church, and I want you to come with me.
Is Itsuki going to get married in this event, too?
Of course not. Lets go.
Thats the right attitude. I like how cooperative you always are.
Im just scared of seeing you get so mad when I say no
N-No, nothing. Ill go with you.
Is that a thing Reone does now? I guess it could be a reference to when she beat the shit out of all those thugs. Either way, dont do it again. The characters are terrified by the wafer-thin character thing is rarely funny. When it is funny, its usually because theres a sight gag to accompany it, which this game doesnt really do.
Thats for the best. Careful not to put your foot in your mouth. Haha Setting the jokes aside, you will be coming with me regardless. I really need you to
All right then, Ill go.
Yes, now lets head over there.
~Star God Academy Church~
So what exactly are we doing here?
When I became the palace physician, I had him buried here
Oh Sorry, I didnt know that. Then why come here all of a sudden?
You cant be that dense. Can you?
I came to report to my brother that his dream has finally come true.
He really loved these
Why does it have to be the last?
I recently remembered Whenever my brother ate my baked apples, he always said
An apple a day keeps the doctor away! Eat enough and hell go away forever!
Ill protect you until then But when that happens, itll be his turn to protect you My job of protecting you will be over then
He was a good brother.
Yes He was too good for me Are you watching me up there? Ive finally found someone I love So you dont have to protect me anymore
I was such a bad sister But this time, I wont leave any stones unturned Its taken such a long time, but please forgive me with this This will be the last time I apologize to you Im sorry Im so sorry Ugh *sniff*
I now feel kind of bad for making light of this incredibly somber moment. Oh well! Too late now. What am I supposed to do, edit the text directly above me? If SC isnt going to bother doing a second pass then why should I?
Your brother as my witness, I promise you, Reone: I will always protect you.
Yes Now he can finally rest in peace
*Back to 3D world*
Itsuki, thank you for being by my side and listening You saw my pitiful crying face
Your beauty never left your face.
Well at least he didnt bust out the old Youre beautiful when you smile chestnut.
Its proof of all the hard work youve put in for your brother. Theres nothing pitiful about that I wont let you cry anymore
So long as Im with you, I will never let you cry. I promised to protect you after all.
R-Really now But I wont be with you for much longer
My role to build the hospital has ended But my duty to exorcise Impurities still remains. Ill see you off cordially as you return to your world
Right. Im counting on you till then.
Do continue requesting my assistance with the Classmating ritual. Dont be shy. Im sure we can make strong Star Children together.
*And then Reone leans in to kiss as the scene fades out*
Thats it for the next batch of Maidens. This update was a little short because of Mahiru. I could have split this entire thing into two updates, but Mahirus event drags on twice as long as everyone elses. It ended up being just a little too much for a clean 50k character break.
