Why stop it? Let's face the facts here. You can't have a 'normal' relationship with a human girl because you'd die. You're not dealing with some computer program or even an off-the-shelf AI. Buttercup is quite possibly sentient, and is no less deserving of your affection than any other being. Only with her, it's actually possible to be with her.

So I ask again, why stop it? Give yourself to it, and experience it and all its intricacies to the fullest. Have some fun. Goodness knows you need it.

Well, you could start by making sure she knows you'll help her be whatever she wants to be.

Being 'around' is a bit different than kissing and sex. And he did say explain what his illness is, probably in the most detailed form we're going to get in a quest: "I got a ton of genetic disorders, a lack of immune system.. and this stupid eye." plus he's allergic to almost everything. It doesn't take a genius to see that he can't be with a woman normally.

I do care about Buttercup, but.. You see, in these dating sims you pretty much 'control' the girls once you have won them over. I don't want to say I'm a controlfreak, but it feels nice to be relied on when.. well.. I'm quite unreliable and weak in real life.
But I don't want to use Buttercup to live out these fantasies.. She's her own person.

Let's just get her a helmet or something to wear during battles, to protect her pretty face. It'll also reduce the likelihood of us having to get ANOTEHR head.

She should keep the claw.

Hmm, could she make it a pet project to reinforce and lengthen the claw, then get it so that when active, it is both hot as hell and running a strong current? Should let it tear through armor easier, and the crackling electricity dancing along the length of the claws should look thematically appropriate for the robot of a masked warrior.

Also, maybe boost rockets should be put on the To Do list, to allow quick forward/diagonal forward movement in bursts, to help close the distance.

Show her the dresses, see which one she wants.

So you live in Europe? Huh.

I think we should take Buttercup out with Esmeralda or something with a group activity. Buttercup won't depend on you so much for friendship if you give her more friends and she'll understand life better. Plus it is a good excuse for a night on the town... unless you're forbidden completely about leaving the house because of your condition, even for fun places like the movies or arcade.

Tell her something along the lines that you are trying some mods on your fightmach to alter it's AI to make it more capable in combat, and as a result, it seems to be developing quirks. Would she be interested in going around the town, hanging out, having fun, spending time together while you check on said quirks?

Seconding mentioning Buttercup to her. The last thing we need is for her to be blindsided by a "third wheel" on this spontaneous date. The learning AI thing is a good cover. Also, may I recommend coming up with a team name to solidify the concept that you three are, in fact, a team? It will help form bonds, I think.

Buttercup does has a personality, why won't you believe me.

You know your doing things because the voices in your head tell you to, might want to consider the possibility that you're a tad crazy.

Also, don't go to a tournament without your suit, your health is the most important thing and going will only vindicate Esmerellda.

Contact her and try and discuss things reasonably, also reassure her that you'll still help her achieve her dream, because despite everything you're still her friend and promises matter to you.

Those files are more important than your physical self is. If you can't move fast enough, get rid of the armor."

Try to find a way to maintain visual and audio contact. If we can get an fps view that would be awesome. As a last resort, leave the house and hijack a car.

I think you should call Esmeralda. Tell her you are going to fight today whether she wants you to or not, but you hope that,. in case anything bad happens because of your condition, that she will accept your apology for getting mad at her. You treasure your friendship.

She should then feel compelled to come get you.

During this time, make your way out of the house, and get to the curb. If she picks you up there, for now at least she won't have any reason to suspect who Buttercup really is.

Then, just stay as rested as you can, and do what is possible to stay calm and awake.

Franklin is a nutjob, and she put up with his shit anyway, up until he fell for a robot instead of her, the normal, flesh and blood, reasonably attractive girl he's known for years.
She drove him to fights, stole the Galactic Hero costume, and even built Buttercup, and we basically ignored her except to beg for more favors or get in fights over Buttercup.


Anyway, she's probably in the next room right now, worried sick. Go apologize to her for being a total douchebag.

She basically told us herself that she liked him because he was so weak and easy to control. "You're not allowed to make your own decisions" (paraphrased)

That is not a viable romantic interest. Well I mean it's not like it doesn't happen in the real world - there are thousands of domineering cunts like that out there. Still, doesn't make it ideal for this little fantasy romp.

I think she said that after we pushed her over the edge. Not sure, though.
She worries about him, apparently not without reason. At least we got our passive-agressive revenge for taking away the suit.

Still feel like making it big as Galactic Knight Z, or are you taking a break for a bit to settle down with Buttercup? Either way, greet her and talk with her. What's with her voice? Is it just really quiet?

"I'm glad... I didn't want it to be a dream... Is that plaid?"

Also, we should probably consider talking to her about some sort of AI that would derive from Buttercup's program. Maybe alter the one we got?

Ask the human girl to climb into bed with you. Not sex, just be close to her. Ask the Fightmach to close the door.

It wouldn't work out. Mr Allergies can't go around licking feet (among other things) and being punished for her amusement.

Also assuming those two survive long enough to want children, they better adopt or i'll be very disappoint after his whining about incest and genetics.

I thought something was up with her how she was into the frail weak little boy who needed constant care.
