>Love poems?
Hmgh, I haven’t thought of those recently. But if it counts—I’ve known her for almost my entire life. I’ve sure to have written quite a few love notes and offered a place to eat. And my love has been fluttering ever since!

>What do you see in her?
There’s something about her that surpasses the scowl she always has. Being with her, I feel... happy. Ever since she walked in the orphanage she’s been alone and quiet, and she deserves to have someone to be with—if not me or the Great Flying Rod herself.

If I could do anything to make her smile, that would be enough. Sigh~ I can still remember the first day we met ♥.

Well... we’ve gotten a bit better over the years.

>Shooting range
Oh my, the church forbids any of that, least on the school grounds! And she does like to throw punches... But a movie, hmm—I don’t think I’ve tried that before. This village isn’t very modern compared to other planets; we usually go for theater plays. I guess you’d describe this place as ‘primitive’ or ‘medieval’ although some technology hangs around for record-keeping and medical care.

>Rough and tumble gal
Heh, yeah. She seems to put her fists to use. I don’t know why she bothers with violence.

I just woke and freshened up in my room. It’s a typical weekend here at the Rhoth-Zogg Orphanage of Bhothogoshol. Normally I’d see Eudora in class—but if I know her well she’s probably going to be in her room all day. Luckily her room is right next to mine, so I can visit her any time I want! She ought to be doing something productive to keep her mind occupied.

A) Visit Eudora’s room
B) Do some praying first
C) Go to the market for a gift, perhaps to find martial arts stuff there.
D) Tend a garden, or something therapeutic to start the day

C. Even if you don't understand, trying to get involved with things she's interested in is a good way to get closer to her.

B. Pray to not get punched in the face. And to not get knocked the fuck out next time she clocks you, because let's be realistic here.

>Pray a bit, then go to the market
I might as well not bother her this morning, then. Best to surprise her with a gift! While the church has taught me fighting isn’t a favorable sport—it seems that such an activity could be my ticket to her heart.

So I first make a quick prayer to the Allmother.

Oh, blessed Bhothogoshol, The Great Flying Rod who sheds life from its husk. This Arthocob’s love is at your mercy. Truly, if it was not meant to be, then the desire would cease—would it not? I implore for a chance to reach her, and let her know that she doesn’t have to be alone in all of the Voxxus. Grant me strength through the craquelure of space, where you live beyond. S’dhaquacama.

Often times the church can give you a small amount of change for food. I collected 17 yogguths to spend in the market. It’s a short walk from the church, but students can purchase food and small stuff here. I’ll take a gander at some of the vendors.

A) Browse the comic store, perhaps for something action-y
B) Look at the mall ninja martial weapons vendor
C) Shop for food
D) Visit the jewelry/clothing vendor
E) Something else to catch my eye?
No. 902504 ID: 2e0f31

A. Perhaps between the pages of hippy-punching action you will see how to get past the tough, spiky shell of an action hero!
Failing that, they usually have wild advertisements in the back for some really weird stuff.
No. 902506 ID: eeb7d9

I guess A. Maybe she's into fiction more than actual martial arts.
No. 902919 ID: 91ee5f

I’m pretty sure she’d like an actual weapon, but you’re probably not allowed to have those and she’d get in trouble if someone found it in her room.

So the next best thing would be A and hope that you can find something that she’ll enjoy!

I skimmed through the pages and... the majority of them are action comics so—I don't know why an action comic WOULDN'T include kicks, punches, shootings, swordplay. Cause, you know, heroes don't talk things out with their villains?

In fact, the Cambrian Explosion is the only one without fighting at all.

Well, I’ll figure out how to segue this in. Perhaps I can surprise her during a picnic! Candlelight, food, and then I’ll come in with a few glasses of Pearlwater. Then we can talk about our holy Arthocobic Gods and read comic books.

Ganymede: “Sir! I must know how much the Pearlwater is!”

Clerk: “...”

Clerk: “One second...”

Well it can’t be that expensive. I don’t think 14 yuggoths may cover it but it can’t be more than, like, 50 right? It’s only one job’s pay away if I do some decent work around the village. And I sure love helping others.

>Sarcothus Torq & Qua-quibb Flanks
Sarcothus Torq. It’s a normal brand of beer—founded in Cnidari Vaalbaran wasteland colonies where the Vzierian raiders now occupy. But it’s a beer nonetheless that Eudora will probably enjoy!

Qua-quibbs are local farm animals here, mollusk-like, and their flank steaks are tasty! Huge creatures, but docile! (I make sure to grab a handful of candy too; sweets are always a good way to a girl’s heart!) Which the total is six yuggoths.

So I have a good amount bought for Eudora. But I realize I ought to make a checklist of sorts, or goal list in order to impress and convince Eudora to go out with me. Something to keep in mind and strive for.

[ ] Go on a date with Eudora
[ ] Purchase Pearlwater (350ygs)
--[ ] Get a job for money
[ ] Gift the comic book to Eudora
[ ] Find a martial weapon (to gift Eudora).

I wonder if there’s anything else I’m missing. Of course, I could add or remove certain goals—say if buying the Pearlwater is too pretentious of me.

If you have to ask, it's probably too pretentious.
Go about getting a job, it has all sorts of benefits, like getting paid, and testing your commitment to this quest.
No. 916466 ID: 91ee5f

There’s no way you can afford the Pearlwater anytime soon, so you may want to wait to buy it on the 3rd or 4th date with Eudora, when you’ve hopefully got money saved up by then.

Because I doubt you’re going to find a job that’ll pay you 350ygs so you can buy it for your 1st date.

Go check the prices of martial weapons, so that you can get an idea of how much money you need to save to buy one.

To the ninja shop, then! Exciting things to browse there. I make my way to look at the weapons by the counter. Interesting stuff--maces, ffffifty different swords with stylized hilts, some throwing stars, lots of knives to collect, and there are nunchucks!

Ffffloop. I should’ve expected it to be more then what I have. I manage to find one made of plain wood. Other types of weapons have pincers and chitin scales and looks to be some collector’s item.

The brass knuckles seem promising. But you’re right that I’m only two yuggoths short. I never haggled before, but I’ll try. It’s easy right? Make the offer and act like you’re in charge!

Yeah, that’s right! The seller depends on me to make business! It only matters what the customer thinks those weapons are worth! I give the Zephcynth seller my offer to pay everything I have left in my pocket. A full eight yuggoths! Making eight is better than making zero anyway! You gotta make what you can!

The Zephcynth tells me my haggling was mediocre and not to waste my breath negotiating on purchases less than 20 yuggoths. Children have a better chance to haggle for the sharper weapons if they fake a tear. He takes a good look at me and politely declines my offer to work behind the counter.

Before I leave to start digging for coins he realizes an opportunity. He thinks I look confident enough to at least carry out a special delivery for him. There’s a neighboring village about a day’s trek away where some guy had ordered a novelty. His previous errand boy was sent but never returned--believing he just ran off with his wares.

He asks if I may be interested in that instead.

I like that confidence! I can deliver stuff! Of course, I ask what’s in it for me. He seems pleased to have my attention and pulls out an interesting weapon wrapped in heavy silk. A collector in Village Corbon has requested these Relicynth daggers. It’s a bit hush-hush but understandably these mall-ninja types don’t want their parents finding out how they spend their money. You could persuade for a generous tip to keep your jowls sealed. Law of the land usually requires the couriers to be tipped--so you could make an extra 10yg. He’ll start me off earning 4% of what was commissioned after each completed delivery--flexible depending on distance and how hazardous the land may be. But you’re basically going next door. Anything cheaper than 300yg the customers will might as well visit the store themselves. So you'll make 12yg for the deed at the least (not including tips).

All the traditional stuff is there too: have the client sign a document. Boss supplies yuggoths for a stay at any village inn. A badge stating you’re a delivery boy and granted passage into cities and towns.

If I choose to accept, I can start the delivery early tomorrow morning and reach Corbon by evening.

I accept the job. The merchant seems pleased and looks forward to seeing me at his tent tomorrow morning. The earlier the better. We can call him Menz. He tells me to skedaddle and make way for the other customers.

Well that was easy to find a job! That one trip will be enough to buy some brass knuckles once I return. I put a checkmark in the book and make sure to write inside my planner.

Now I can find Eudora and cook up some Baoli--

I hear some guffawing, and one with a peculiar but recognizable snort in the middle of their hee-haw. It could be none other than Kyzil, Mok, and Torval behind me. These guys have been bullying me for years, but I’ve been perfecting the art of being the bigger man. I’ve wanted to test a new strategy. I'll just... silently get up, try extremely hard not to cry, teach them that it’s not polite to do these things, calmly collect my stuff, and possibly run.

Kyzil: “How’s the mud, squirt?”

“You’re not gonna try to be the bigger man again, are ya? Heh-heh-heh...

You ARE the bigger man. You have a job and you're going to have a lovely dinner with someone special to you. These three are just speed bumps. They can push you around, demean you, ridicule you, and even beat you up. But they can't take away what you've achieved. Remember that.

Grab your things, shrug, then run away.

what new strategy and what with the crazy sadist look on Kyzil
No. 917603 ID: 91ee5f

The most important thing to do is grab the things you were going to give to Eudora! Do that before you say anything to them!

Be careful, maybe they'll try to stleal your stuff.

Good words to live by. Day in, day out these guys pick on me--but I’m fairly used to it now. If they were sent by the Almighty Bhothogoshol herself then it definitely isn’t as bad as, like, meteors raining down on a village or a plague. I can take this torment.

You’re right--I should just collect my gifts for Eudora as fast as possible and split. I’m not going to spend a word on these guys. They’ve caused enough trouble my whole life and I don’t quite have anything left to say. I try to save the food first and scoop it into the grocery bag (calmly and not too hurried). I’ll clean off the dirt and mud later.

Kyzil: “Oooooh, the silence is new~! Hey buddy, why aren’t you sayin’ anything?”

Kyzil: “Tch, Is that a comic book? Nerd.”

Mok snatches the magazine before I do. I’ve played that game too many times to know what happens when I try to reach it. Kyzil hops off the fence. Whatever she says the other two chortle with their mandibles.

Kyzil: “Vulgar Rush? What is that, some kind of porn mag?”

Kyzil: “Hmm, all I see are a bunch of burly dudes--is that what gets you going, Gany?”

You know, you can’t go wrong with a guy who’s fit, competent, and heroic — which is why I’ve never paid much attention to you guys.
No. 918007 ID: 2f83e5

Tell her that your eyes are upon a fine and lovey lady already.
No. 918018 ID: d887c0

Maybe. What? Are they a bunch of homophobes, too? That's discrimination. They could get in trouble for that.
No. 918044 ID: 1a6f80

we not gay
No. 918114 ID: 0c3c2c

You're really not gay. Actually, it sounds like they're projecting. By the way, does your society have any guards or a police system?

Also, start telling them platitudes from Church. Specifically all the brutally violent ones. Inform them of how your faith is strong, and martyrdom is considered a promotion.
No. 918117 ID: a9af05

Are these guys afraid of Eudora? Do they know who she is?

Because if they know who she is and they're afraid of her, you can tell them that Eudora is gonna hurt them if she finds out they're messing with her comic book!

These guys are orphans at the school, just like me. And they do know Eudora. While they are rivals--they’ve learned not to anger the punch buggy. I think I remember a childhood incident where Eudora tried to ‘fix’ Kyzil’s eye.

They surround me, even when I back off to make space. Although I can’t just let them take Eudora’s comic book! I don’t really want to reveal that it’s my gift for her. They’d rip it to shreds!

There are town guards, probably not as tight as other planets. This is a village unlike an off-world city. But if someone spots us they’ll just tell us to scram.

>Platitudes/Violent anecdotes
The Book of the Voxxus Neb is full of neat little anecdotes and lessons! I’m not really keen on the violent stuff--Bhothogoshol shows us that the world doesn’t need brutality and barbarism to get your point across.

I recite a verse when the great warrior Bogn denied to kill his rival: “I cannot steal Meegir when the tempt is absent. Any more, I cannot eradicate just as I cannot spare.

Torval: “That doesn’t even make sense, dork.”

I explain that Bogn became indifferent to violence; his enemies couldn’t strike him down no matter how hard they tried. Bogn saw his enemy like one would view the smallest, insignificant mite in the soil. With a new enlightenment, he could enter the amber City.

In other words, bullying me won’t get you anywhere in life.

Somehow I don’t think it’s a good idea to give any implication that fit, competent, and heroic dudes catch my interest. They’ll just start spreading rumors around the orphanage. I dunno if they’re homophobes but I don’t want to be associated with something I am NOT.

I brush what I can off my robe. I make it clear that my eyes are upon a fine and lovely lady already, mind you. Kyzil acts flattered, surprised, and jests with her hands on her cheeks with that sadistic smile in her gaze.

Kyzil: “Ooh~ Ganymede! I never thought you had the hots for me.”

Kyzil: “Suddenly everything about you makes sense~!”

Kyzil: “Please, go on.”

Those jerks are laughing. She knows very well I didn't mean her! >:C I mean, she is a well-complimented Arthocob on campus. But that’s beside the point!

No. 918241 ID: b1b4f3

Tell her she is pretty but you meant Eudora.
No. 918275 ID: 2f83e5

Sorry, altough you are a fine woman, my heart was stolen by Eudora.
No. 918278 ID: 91ee5f

Try telling her, “Oh, please, we both know you’re outta my league! Mok and Torval have a better chance at getting a date with you than I do!”

Hopefully, one or both of the guys will realize that they do feel something for Kyzil and will end up fighting each other to try and get a date with her. Which will have all of them focus on that instead of you!

.....or you could pray really hard right now and ask your god to please send Eudora to save you right now.

Just act confused at the idea she's someone anyone would be interested in.
