  4. Canterlot High Library
  5.  
  6. You decided to spend some time with Twilight.
  7.  
  8. She looks quite happy to be back in her usual perch behind the desk, and even a little more energized after her forced break.
  9.  
  10. As you pull up a seat across from her, Twilight slides a bookmark into her book and closes it, giving you her full attention.
  11.  
  12. Twilight: Good to see you again, [Player]. I thought you might be stopping by again soon.
  13.  
  14. You exchange the usual pleasantries, all while looking over her daily spread.
  15.  
  16. Today's focus seems to be homework, some of which looks familiar, but a lot looks like it could be over your head.
  17.  
  18. Twilight's phone chirps abruptly, interrupting the silence.
  19.  
  20. She smiles and tries to ignore it, but the phone goes off four more times in rapid succession before she finally picks it up.
  21.  
  22. Twilight: Sorry, I'll just be a minute.
  23.  
  24. She quickly hammers out a response, then switches the phone over to silent.
  25.  
  26. Sighing heavily, Twilight closes her eyes and shakes her head.
  27.  
  28. Twilight: Oh, Pinkie Pie...
  29.  
  30. >Option 1 - Panka Pae?
  31.     S-Link +0.2
  32.     Twilight looks at you as though you've grown a second head.
  33.  
  34.     Twilight: What? No! Pinkie Pie, my friend? Well, technically she's everyone's friend.
  35.  
  36.     Twilight: Surely you met her on your first day of school? She's the one who makes people fill out the party questionnaire?
  37.  
  38.     Twilight: I mean, you DID fill out the questionnaire, right?
  39.  
  40.     Twilight: ...Oh [Player]...
  41.  
  42.     Twilight: Don't worry, your secret is safe with me.
  43.  
  44. >option 2 - Pinkie has your number?
  45.     S-Link +1
  46.     Twilight laughs.
  47.  
  48.     Twilight: I'm pretty sure Pinkie has everyone's phone number, even yours.
  49.  
  50.     Twilight: Don't ask me how; I never gave her mine either.
  51.  
  52.     Twilight: She's a little mysterious like that, but it's not all bad.
  53.  
  54.     Twilight: ...unless she's trying to get your attention.
  55.  
  56. >Option 3 - You don't need to take that?
  57.     S-Link +0.6
  58.     Twilight shakes her head.
  59.  
  60.     Twilight: Not especially; I just told Pinkie that I'm too busy to talk right now.
  61.  
  62.     Twilight: Between my studies and homework and everything else, I'm sure she will understand.
  63.  
  64.     Twilight: Well, I hope anyway.
  65.  
  66. Twilight gives the phone an uncertain look.
  67.  
  68. Even with the sound and vibration off, the red light in the corner continues to flash at a steady pace.
  69.  
  70. She sighs and turns the phone face down.
  71.  
  72. Twilight: Sorry about that. Pinkie can be a little intense at times.
  73.  
  74. Twilight: Things were alright for a while actually, she let me study in peace.
  75.  
  76. Twilight: But, when we went to Sugar Cube Corner...
  77.  
  78. Shrugging, Twilight gives a smile.
  79.  
  80. Twilight: Well, she saw us there, and I just haven't been able to get her to leave me alone ever since.
  81.  
  82. Twilight: I'm kind of at a loss on what to do. You have any ideas?
  83.  
  84. >Option 1 - Spend some time together with Pinkie Pie.
  85.     S-Link +1
  86.     Twilight: Ugh, I was afraid you would say something like that.
  87.  
  88.     Twilight: Don't get me wrong, Pinkie's a great friend, and fun to be around, but I don't have the time.
  89.  
  90.     Twilight: I mean, I could make time to take another break, but I would feel bad about it
  91.  
  92.     Twilight: Probably, anyway.
  93.  
  94.     Looking towards the floor, Twilight lets loose a heavy sigh.
  95.  
  96.     Twilight: But it's not like I feel good about ignoring Pinkie either. She's my friend.
  97.  
  98.     Twilight: Maybe you're right; I should take time to reach out with her, even with all this work I have to do.
  99.  
  100.     Twilight: Besides, who's to say that I wouldn't feel better afterwards? our date did wonders for me!
  101.  
  102.     There's a moment of silence before Twilight brings up one of her hands and shakes her head.
  103.  
  104.     Twilight: Not that it was an actual date. Just, a study date. Yeah. Exactly. Study date.
  105.  
  106. >Option 2 - Promise you'll catch up with her later.
  107.     S-Link +0.6
  108.     Twilight: A stalling tactic, hm?
  109.  
  110.     Twilight looks thoughtful as she considers that option.
  111.  
  112.     Twilight: You do have a point there, I could use that to buy myself some time until I've got a few spare moments.
  113.  
  114.     Twilight: It's awfully tricky though, and if I encourage her, she might get impatient and come by the library herself.
  115.  
  116.     Twilight sighs and leans her cheek against her palm.
  117.  
  118.     Twilight: That would be a distraction I don't think I could deal with.
  119.  
  120.     Twilight: I mean, I like your visits, but that's because you're quiet, and a good listener.
  121.  
  122.     Twilight: Pinkie is... well... well, she's the second.
  123.  
  124.     Twilight: I just don't think I could get anything done with her around.
  125.  
  126. >Option 3 - Keep ignoring her, she'll get the message.
  127.     S-Link +0.2
  128.     Twilight sits up a little straighter at your response.
  129.  
  130.     Twilight: ...Really? I know I'm avoiding answering her right now, but doesn't that seem a little, mean?
  131.  
  132.     Twilight: Pinkie's my friend, and I don' think I would feel comfortable just leaving her alone like that.
  133.  
  134.     Sighing, Twilight leans forward again and looks to her phone.
  135.  
  136.     Twilight: Besides, it's nice to be remembered sometimes.
  137.  
  138. After a few moments of thought, Twilight groans and buries her face in her hands.
  139.  
  140. Twilight: This is exactly what I was afraid of; everything was fine when I was locked in the library on my own.
  141.  
  142. Twilight: All of the girls are great, but they all require so much attention.
  143.  
  144. Twilight: Between them, and getting everything prepared to apply for the McGuffin Program, it just seems so overwhelming!
  145.  
  146. Twilight: And they offer to help but, I can't count on them to be in the room with me when I take the test!
  147.  
  148. Giving a heavy sigh, Twilight closes her eyes.
  149.  
  150. Twilight: Between the program and my friends, I just don't know what to do anymore.
  151.  
  152. Twilight: They are both important to me, but...
  153.  
  154. Twilight: ...I'd rather not choose one over the other.
  155.  
  156. Rocking back in her seat, Twilight closes her eyes.
  157.  
  158. Twilight: Sorry, [Player], I need some time to think about all of this.
  159.  
  160. Twilight: Please, don't think I'm chasing you away but, I need to be alone right now.
  161.  
  162. Twilight: ...I'll see you later?
  163.  
  164. You nod your head in agreement and pack up your things, leaving Twilight alone with her thoughts.
