This does seem to be a private discussion, so remain quiet for the moment unless either your opinion is requested, or the argument seems to travel in a circle.

For the moment, ponder how "want to," "need to," and "can" are entirely unrelated things and yet these two seem to be considering them all together. Lots of people can do things they don't want to, can't do things they need to, or want things they don't need. For example, Bea's mother doesn't need Bea to survive, but she wants her to. Perhaps the two of them should properly consider all three of these aspects of the issue separately rather than muddling them. Rather than getting distracted with "can" or "need to," why does Bea want to be an adventurer? Why does her mother think she shouldn't want that? And so on.
No. 931957 ID: 8d4593

Wait for Zen to leave.
Then ask Bea if she'd like to go out on an short adventure.

Maybe Hunt down a big beasty or something.

Say this and suggest Hoor and his cousin Freya as partners.

Continue to believe Freya and Bea are not the same person.
No. 932028 ID: ba56e6

Less is more. Emils doesn't talk this much.
No. 932054 ID: 91ee5f

>Say this and suggest Hoor and his cousin Freya as partners.
Personally, I’d rephrase that as suggesting her boyfriend, Hoor, and his cousin, Freya, being Bea’s adventuring partners. Just to mess with them.

>Continue to believe Freya and Bea are not the same person.
We’re still doing that? Yeah, ok, let’s keep doing that.
No. 932066 ID: 58b4f3

I agree with calling Hoor Bea's boyfriend.
No. 932100 ID: 8e7bfa

While fun, I don't think we should do that. It may exacerbate the problem.

Maybe simply interject "I don't need to either, but I want to. It's discovery and it helps people."
No. 932134 ID: ea82cb

"Is it not more important that this is something she wants? I have learned that need is not everything."

Suggest that becoming an adventurer would be beneficial to Beatrice's health in many different ways. Exercise, friends, contacts, opportunities, last but not least, fulfilling her dreams.

Beas needs, wants, and desires are of no concern to me.

“Might I ask what is this argument about?” I ask.
“This does not concern you, Emils, it’s just a small family matter.”
“This is a small matter?!” Bea asks, “I’m asking about by future, what I want to do! I can’t believe you’re dismissing this!”
Bea stops pushing the moving chair and faces me, “Emils, you’re not from here, you’ve been outside the city, let me ask your opinion on this, I want to be an adventurer, but my family doesn’t.”
“Beatrice, this isn’t the time or place to discuss this.” Zen interjects.
“Then when is the time? I’ve heard stories about far off lands and cities and places I’ve never even heard of before! I want to go out there and see the world for myself!”

“If I may ask, why can’t Beatrice be an adventurer?”
Zen looks around, as if looking for something, “It’s not safe out there.”
“If it is a matter of safety, could she not seek out others to travel with?”
“It is exactly others who you must be most wary of.” Zen tells Beatrice.

Zen grabs the wheels of her chair, and starts rolling herself off in another direction.
“Go to school you two. Beatrice, we will continue this at home. This is private matters and will stay as such.”

Beatrice looks upset, turning and stomping towards the direction of school.
No. 933185 ID: 0fae41

Take the long way to school. When was the last time you ate something? You look thin as a rail.
No. 933186 ID: 1ed92d

It's a logical fallacy to claim that others are untrustworthy then demand she trust the one who says that. Bea's mother is weird.
No. 933188 ID: 8d4593

Your mother claims the outside world is dangerous.
I can tell you from experience: It is not, so long as You are the most dangerous thing out there.
No. 933189 ID: e3e99e

Catch up and walk with Bea.
"I am sorry; I have a poor understanding of danger, and apparently do not die when I should.
My caretaker is an experienced adventurer, if you would like to meet them."
No. 933190 ID: e20bdf

She is at her peak rebelliousness, take advantage of that.
Invite her to our side project inside the city walls: locate and hunt the mafia!
No. 933194 ID: ea82cb

Emils is a great predator. Maybe the woman is right. The fact that Bea is not worried by your proximity is foolish. Of course, Zen was also unaware, so there's no reason to bring it up.

You could bring up that until she has her own body mastered, she isn't in any place to deal with external threats.
No. 933208 ID: 2202fb

When Zen leaves, offer to train Bea in secret.
No. 933214 ID: 91ee5f

Tell Bea that until she can master controlling her body, her mother is correct in saying that it is dangerous outside.

And once she can gain control over her body, she can prove her mother wrong.
No. 933218 ID: f3310b

Two things that I'd want to ask Zen is... how she met her husband. And then, due to the dangers involved, would she considers that to be a mistake. Well, perhaps in the next opportunity.

Follow Bea. Ask her why her mother thinks that way. Comfort her by telling her that her mother's actions are probably deeply intertwined with the deadly condition she has. Argue that, with your help, if she can prove that she can control her curse and that she's not dying anymore, that it would convince her parents to give her more freedom.
No. 933251 ID: ba56e6


Go walk with Bea and be supportive.
No. 933356 ID: a9af05

Yeah, say this to Bea.
No. 933473 ID: 44e89f

I walked up to Beatrice, catching up to her easily as she frowns.
"I do not understand why you are upset. As a parent, should she not be worried for her children?"
"There's protective, and then there's suffocating! They keep telling me about how bad outside is, but refuse to tell me what about it they're so worried about!"
Bea exclaims, "All these years, and no reason at all! They just shift topics or ignore it outright!"
"Then clearly you need to be more dangerous than what's out there."
Beatrice stops in place, and glowers at me.

"I find that being more dangerous than what is going to attack me is typically the best way to handle an aggression." I explained.
"That is the dumbest thing I've ever heard. But sadly that would probably be the best way to go about it."
"Then it's probably a good thing that one of the most dangerous persons in this city is your father. It sounds like you're already getting training from him?"
"Yeah, but he's not going to give me more training, I've asked, and he stopped bringing me out of the city years ago."

We continue to walk, "Then why not seek out other ways of training? Whom else is more dangerous than your parents?"
"I mean, not much who stay here. There's Victor, but he's too close to my parents, but no one else I know personally."
"Well, we could always try to do stuff together. It is my understanding that is what people do as a way of support."
"I don't see how that would work, you're less trained than I am."
"Well, the option is still there."

>continue to school

“I think I’ve done well for myself,” I state, “considering that I’ve been living out there nearly my whole life.”
“Please, as if your people would let a noble get hurt.”
As we walk, we pass by the matron.
“Hello Matron.” Bea greets.
“Ah, hello Beatrice. Emils, Victor was just here. It’s been almost a week, are things going fine? Do you have any questions or concerns you have?”
No. 934010 ID: e20bdf

Considering the large age difference between the students there are too few of us. Why is that? Is the temple education unusual? Perhaps selective? Is the population much smaller than the city structure suggest? Do people have few children?
No. 934018 ID: ea82cb

Also when are we really going to get into the serious magic?
No. 934023 ID: 91ee5f

>“Please, as if your people would let a noble get hurt.”
I don’t have any people because like I said, I’ve been alone most of my life.

.....also, what’s a noble and why do you think I’m one?

>Do you have any questions or concerns you have?
I passed my guild test and got my bracelet. When am I going to start being able to go on missions?
No. 934024 ID: e20bdf

>When am I going to start being able to go on missions?
That is with the guild, not the temple.
No. 934033 ID: b1b4f3

Well that settles it. Now we gotta fight. For realsies. Away from prying eyes.
When and where, Bea?
No. 934045 ID: 91ee5f

>That is with the guild, not the temple.
But we’re not going to the Temple. We’re going to the school.
No. 934050 ID: e20bdf

I though the school was part of the temple. I'm misremembering?

No. 934150 ID: ea82cb

Honestly, this too. Say we can show her how strong we are. That might be pretty fun!
No. 934172 ID: 3940d3

Let’s not share that we have anything to do with the missing people, feel free to tell her we woke up there and survived on our own but we don’t want to tie in anything unnecessary.
No. 934180 ID: e3e99e

The guards died around the time she was found, not weeks prior.
No. 934182 ID: ba56e6

Except not really for realsies. But we could learn some more techniques from watching her flail against us.
No. 934200 ID: 8d4593

No. 934229 ID: a9af05

We're actually not all that strong compared to Bea, since she was able to easily break our hand earlier.

If we spar with her, Bea will be wondering how she's not breaking every bone in our body.
No. 934235 ID: e20bdf

We copied Bea's spell, with it Emils should be stronger than her.

But let's not start a fight in the school because of a remark resulted from Bea's belief in our lies. This isn't the time or the place. If anything her version of events is flattering, Bea would just be confused that we want to beat her over this.
No. 934238 ID: b1b4f3

Technically, Emils has never lied to Bea.
No. 934239 ID: 094652

"Matriarch, why isn't there enough funding for healing research when the rich and powerful can be crippled for life? I figured they would spend half their fortunes to live forever."

Emils has a biometric resemblance to Samantha, a guard who went MIA along with her squad. We're not 100% sure Emils was the killer but at the very least she somehow obtained what were reported as similar markings to Sam. So Emils likely ate Sam's DNA. The question is: is that enough to link Emils directly or indirectly to Sam? Signs point to yes.
No. 934251 ID: ea82cb

No one is suggesting we fight her at school, or that we want to fight her for our wounded pride. It's just to prove we're being honest, so we can continue helping Bea.
No. 934264 ID: e20bdf

I'm very curious now. Please elaborate on how a fight is an argument.
No. 934284 ID: ea82cb

By proving we are as tough as we claim to be, since she thinks we were coddled? Tough enough to have lived in the wilderness? Tough enough to train with her? Which part do you need help with. A fight is an argument exactly when whether or not we can fight is the argument.
No. 934285 ID: ea82cb

To be clear in advance, the word "fight" has been used a lot but what everyone actually means is "spar".
No. 934309 ID: e20bdf

She already saw us run like mad, demonstrate abnormal strength and endure the pain of broken bones as if it's nothing. I'm sure she think we would be capable of surviving in a cave eating grass and lizards, but because of the noble story she believe that was a lie.
If we spar with her and win all we would be proving is that we are better at sparing. If anything that is associated with nobility more than survival skills.
No. 934324 ID: 8d4593

That's fine so long as she understands that she can learn and grow by training with Emils.

Alternatively this could be a chance for slime to safely reveal themself to her, thereby performing the same function, but also unlocking a myriad of new things for us to do.

Either way, both serve to push Bea down the path of the adventurer, thereby furthering Emils' own magical girl ambitions.

I really see no downsides to proposing an isolated hardcore sparring session with Bea.
No. 934365 ID: ea82cb

Sparring is also a bonding experience. Or it can be.
No. 934380 ID: 91ee5f

Should we have Emils show off her new singing trick to the Matron? I kinda want to see how she’d react to that. Especially when we start talking at the same time, like we did when we showed Bea.
No. 934390 ID: f3310b

This quest does have questdis thread:
No. 934413 ID: 99ed9b

Emils should probably start singing and playing with mana all the time. Clearly she can do it and still concentrate on other things.
No. 934416 ID: 58b4f3

Tell Matron that the furniture in Victor's house keeps breaking everytime you sit on them. Then express concerns if that means that you're fat.
No. 934418 ID: 0fae41

Your only concern is that Victor's been very distracted since your visit, and your question is if Victor and Asera have a thing for each other.
No. 935269 ID: 44e89f

"I have been learning many things so far." I answer, "Although I do have questions about the vast age difference between my classmates."
"Oh, well, the shrine isn't a full school, most of the children here have certain history that makes it difficult or unsuitable for them to attend the royal school. Beatrice here, for example, was ostracized after an accident with another child."
"As much as it was an accident, the jerk deserved it."
The matron gives Bea a look, that causes her to wilt.
"Then, is it possible to have a study in magic in it's entirety?"
"Hm," the matron thinks, "This place sadly doesn't have much in terms of proper materials for teaching magic. You would have to ask Victor in that regards, his connections would be beneficial for you in that case."
"What about going on an accelerated education? Marie is not the fastest of educators."
"Sadly no, You're already in an advanced class, but you're free to pursue the limited library we have if you find yourself ahead. But please keep in mind, these classes are also for you to be around peers and for making friends. Don't be too focused on one thing, and expand yourself."

"Ah, look at the time, I do believe you two should head to class now. Emils, if you ever need anything, do feel free to come over to my office to ask."
"Yes madam." we reply before heading to class.

When we head into the shrine, I ask Beatrice, "What is wrong with just some training together? It wouldn't hurt to get any kind of experience."
"Fine," Beatrice sighs, "but it would have to be later, after I deal with whatever's up with my family."

As we enter the class with a few minutes before Marie comes in, Alice is waving at me.

No. 935473 ID: a9af05

Quick question, but aren't we heavier than we were last time we had a school episode? We did end up eating that bird guy in the alley.

Are we going to end up breaking a chair?
No. 935479 ID: e20bdf

I think we burned through mass faster than we've being consuming.
Synthesis require the loss of some mass every time we use it, and we used it to repair damage all the time. Broken limbs, muscle improvement, alternative lizard and bird forms...
No. 935507 ID: 58b4f3

>Break chair?
If it happens, then it was bound to happen at school sooner or later.
No. 936001 ID: e7703b

>Sit next to Alice.

Bea heads to her desk, as I walk to the back of the room to mine.
I then grab the chair and proceed to drag it across the stone floor towards Alice's desk, making a screeching sound along the way.

The class is silent as I sit down next to Alice.
"So, what would you like to talk about?" I ask.
"I uh, I wanted to talk to you about what happened the other day. I spoke to my grandfather, and he would like to talk to you."
"Did he seem upset or glad?"
"He just seems a bit skeptical, and slightly concerned. I tried to leave out some info on who you are, so he might be trying to scope you out a bit beforehand."
"I understand."

I ended up spending the time with Alice during class time, with her teaching me some stuff in regards to today's lesson.

Alice's fiance? Is his birthday already? If not did we had plans to visit him before the party? I don't remember where does this option comes from.
If anything what should follow from this conversation would be a visit to Alice's grandfather.

But sure, let's drag Alice to her past drama and see what happens.

Also, ask about her peoples' culture while you walk. You'll need to know more to pull off your birdman disguise well.
No. 936066 ID: 91ee5f

I’d like to get Alice and her fiancé back together. Or at the very least get them on friendly terms with each other.

Let’s go look for Alice's fiancé and ask Alice if she wants to come along. The worst that can happen is that she says she doesn’t want to come and we go alone.
No. 936067 ID: ba56e6

If she asks why, answer that it is a magical girl's duty to nurture and protect love.
No. 936071 ID: b0b724

I forget exactly how Alice felt about the situation but now's a great time for an unavoidable reminder.
No. 936091 ID: 977456

And rain terrible horrors upon those who would claim love in the service of Evil. Otherwise they'd never survive their first "sexy villain" or "soulmate turned to The Dark Side" arc.

Hold the chair elevated off the ground with both hands against yourself close to your center of mass next time. Actually, carry any "Large" featherweight to you but not to them object like that while in public. It mimics how they carry heavy things so as not to raise suspicions but also doesn't cause a ruckus like dragging does.
