  1. Twilight S-Link 10 (N) [S]
  2.  
  3. When you enter the library today, you see that Twilight is looking off into space.
  4.  
  5. Her eyes are unfocused, as though intent on gazing through the wall in front of her and beyond to the horizon.
  6.  
  7. She seems oblivious to the world around her. Do you approach?
  8.  
  9. >Yes
  10. >No
  11.  
  12. When you call her name, Twilight visibly flinches and pulls herself back from wherever her mind had been.
  13.  
  14. Her eyes are unfocused for a moment, but after they settle on you, a smile spreads across her lips with surprising speed.
  15.  
  16. Twilight: [Player]! Just who I was hoping to see. There's something that I have to tell you.
  17.  
  18. >Option 1 - Twilight, I had no idea you felt that way about me.
  19.     Twilight pauses for an instant, her cheeks coloring, then gives a little snort and shakes her head.
  20.  
  21.     Twilight: You can be such a goof sometimes. But this is more important than that.
  22.  
  23.     Twilight: I just received my acceptance into McGuffin!
  24.  
  25. >Option 2 - Have you heard any news?
  26.     Twilight: The best news I could have hoped for actually.
  27.  
  28.     Even with that out on the table, Twilight can't contain the little squeal of joy that escapes her lips.
  29.  
  30.     Twilight: I've been accepted into the McGuffin program!
  31.  
  32. >Option 3 - You've unexpectedly been crowned Princess of a far-away land that's known for its horses?
  33.     Twilight stares at you in visible confusion, sputtering her response.
  34.  
  35.     Twilight: What? No. Where on earth would you get an idea like that?
  36.  
  37.     After you shrug your shoulders, Twilight shakes her head and offers a cheeky grin.
  38.  
  39.     Twilight: I guess that weirdness is just part of who you are. But no, it's about the McGuffin Program.
  40.  
  41.     Her wide smile returns.
  42.  
  43.     Twilight: I'm in!
  44.  
  45. Having gotten her news out, Twilight gives a heavy, satisfied sigh and stares into your eyes.
  46.  
  47. Twilight: It might sound strange, but I really do owe you a great deal for your help.
  48.  
  49. Twilight: If it wasn't for you, I don't think I would have realized what was bothering me about my approach.
  50.  
  51. Twilight: So, thank you for that.
  52.  
  53. Twilight breaks eye contact, looking down at her fidgeting fingers for a moment.
  54.  
  55. Twilight: [Player], if it's all right, I'd like to ask you one thing.
  56.  
  57. With a quick breath, Twilight looks up at you again, the words spilling out of her mouth as soon as she opens it.
  58.  
  59. Twilight: Would you please come to Sugar Cube Corner with me?
  60.  
  61. Twilight: You see, I received a text from Pinkie Pie asking me to come out to see her.
  62.  
  63. Twilight: I think it's probably because she has a surprise party planned. But I would really like you to be with me in that case.
  64.  
  65. The smile returns to her face in earnest.
  66.  
  67. Twilight: You did play a huge part after all, and it wouldn't feel right without you. Even just for a little while?
  68.  
  69. You consider your options. But, after looking at Twilight, it quickly becomes apparent that there is only one. So-
  70.  
  71. [Sugar Cube Corner]
  72.  
  73. -that is how you find yourself walking in through the double doors of the shop a little while later.
  74.  
  75. An explosive pop from up above causes you and Twilight to jump, before bits of colored confetti rain down.
  76.  
  77. Leaping into your sight, Pinkie Pie leads the cheer of the entire store.
  78.  
  79. Pinkie Pie: Congratulations, Twilight!
  80.  
  81. Amid the applause, Pinkie prances up to the two of you, all smiles as usual.
  82.  
  83. Pinkie Pie: Hiya, [Player], thanks for coming out to Twilight's special party! You don't mind if we borrow her for a little while?
  84.  
  85. It's hard to argue with Pinkie, and even harder when Twilight is quickly swept up in a wave of students.
  86.  
  87. The bookish girl gives you a look before she's assailed on all sides by curious peers, leaving you alone with Pinkie.
  88.  
  89. Pinkie Pie: So, I suppose we have you to thank for your help?
  90.  
  91. Turning your attention to the apron-wearing girl beside you, you see that she's wearing a softer, sweeter expression.
  92.  
  93. Pinkie Pie: Don't bother hiding it, we know you did a lot for Twilight. More than we could.
  94.  
  95. Pinkie Pie: Twilight's going to get to be a part of something exciting next year, and we've got our friend back too.
  96.  
  97. She stares at you for a moment more before slapping you hard on the back and giggling, the sweetness replaced with cheer.
  98.  
  99. Pinkie Pie: You're really something, [Player]. Enjoy the party, because it wouldn't have happened without you!
  100.  
  101. And, just like that, the hostess charges off to attend to whatever ends up going awry.
  102.  
  103. You spend a little time making small talk and rubbing elbows with your peers, but when Pinkie decides to break out the dance music, you need a break.
  104.  
  105. All those study sessions in the library and Twilight's house have really sapped your enthusiasm for loud celebrations.
  106.  
  107. Stepping outside, you savor the fresh air of the gathering night and look up at the stars.
  108.  
  109. Amidst the steady thrum of the music behind the walls, you hear the audible squeak of a door opening, along with a familiar voice.
  110.  
  111. Twilight: Phew, finally.
  112.  
  113. Twilight steps outside, looking a little frazzled, but happy all the same. She spots you in an instant, and moves next to you.
  114.  
  115. Twilight: I guess we had the same idea about getting away for a little while.
  116.  
  117. Leaning back against the building, Twilight holds her hands together and joins you in looking up.
  118.  
  119. There is a long silence before Twilight speaks again.
  120.  
  121. Twilight: Hey, [Player]? I just want you to know, I meant what I said earlier. You know, about how much you helped?
  122.  
  123. Twilight releases her grip long enough to play with her hair for a few seconds, before sliding it in place behind her ear.
  124.  
  125. Twilight: Even knowing my friends, I don't think there is anyone quite like you. You really are one of a kind.
  126.  
  127. Another beat of silence, just long enough to fill the air with a growing sense of anxiety.
  128.  
  129. Twilight: That's why I'd like to ask you something, if it's okay.
  130.  
  131. Twilight clutches her hands together again and plays with the hem of her skirt. Her voice is quivering and halting.
  132.  
  133. Twilight: I'd like to leave the party early and thank you privately. What do you think?
  134.  
  135. The words hang in the air as Twilight waits for your reply, unable to meet your eyes for more than a glance at a time.
  136.  
  137. This is your big chance...
  138.  
  139. >Option 1 - We can do that later, Twilight. This is your party. You've worked hard for this and should celebrate your friends.
  140.     Twilight nods her head and lets loose a long sigh.
  141.  
  142.     Twilight: You're right. I mean, what's the point of all this work if I don't take time to rest?
  143.  
  144.     Twilight: I guess I was worried you might have been feeling sick of me since we spent so much time together.
  145.  
  146.     Twilight: But I'll hold you to that promise, [Player].
  147.  
  148.     Twilight smiles.
  149.  
  150.     Twilight: Don't think you're going to get out of letting me thank you.
  151.  
  152.     The two of you stand in silence for a little while longer before Twilight pushes herself up from the building.
  153.  
  154.     Twilight: Well, I should get back inside before people start asking questions.
  155.  
  156.     She dusts off the back of her skirt, but doesn't move away.
  157.  
  158.     Three heartbeats later, she leans forward and plants a peck on your lips.
  159.  
  160.     Red-faced and smiling wider than when she told you the news earlier, Twilight steps backwards towards the door, keeping eye contact.
  161.  
  162.     Twilight: Consider that a taste, [Player]. I'll see you around school.
  163.  
  164.     She makes it another step before giggling and hurrying back inside Sugar Cube Corner.
  165.  
  166.     The door opens and closes, leaving you alone again.
  167.  
  168.     You linger for a little while longer, letting the feelings stirring in your body take hold.
  169.  
  170.     Not wanting to cause a scene by going back inside, you head home for the night.
  171.  
  172.     [Fulfilled Dream? - option to get intimate with Twilight later]
  173.  
  174. >Option 2 - I'm not sure that's a good idea, Twilight. There are a lot of things that need your attention. you should take care of those.
  175.     Twilight stares at you for a long moment after you reply, her face a still mask.
  176.  
  177.     Then, her lip quivers.
  178.  
  179.     Twilight: [Player]...
  180.  
  181.     She gulps, her shoulders shaking a bit at the exertion behind it. But she takes several seconds to continue.
  182.  
  183.     Twilight: You're probably right. I've spent a lot of time ignoring important people in my life.
  184.  
  185.     Twilight reaches up plays with her hair.
  186.  
  187.     Twilight: I was just hoping that maybe, you would be one of those people.
  188.  
  189.     Twilight: But we've spent a lot of time together already, so I can understand. We need to take a little break.
  190.  
  191.     Despite the confidence in her words, you can see tears beginning to build in her eyes.
  192.  
  193.     Her explanation quickens.
  194.  
  195.     Twilight: I just hope this won't keep you from stopping by the library, or even the house from time to time.
  196.  
  197.     Twilight: I-
  198.  
  199.     Her voice cracks, if only for an instant. But then, an honest, slightly tearful smile crosses her face.
  200.  
  201.     Twilight: I'd miss you.
  202.  
  203.     With an audible, slightly stuffy, sniff, Twilight sighs and leans forward to plant a kiss on your cheek.
  204.  
  205.     It's brief, and she quickly moves back towards the door.
  206.  
  207.     Twilight: Alright [Player], I need to get back before people get the wrong idea about us.
  208.  
  209.     Twilight: I'll see you around school, okay?
  210.  
  211.     Without waiting for a response, Twilight slips back inside Sugar Cube Corner, leaving you alone again.
  212.  
  213.     You watch after the door for a while, but it's clear she's not coming back out.
  214.  
  215.     Lingering for a little while longer, you struggle to parse out the feelings inside your chest.
  216.  
  217.     With returning to the party out of the question without causing a scene, the only option left to you is to return home.
  218.  
  219.     And so you go, leaving a successful, if hurt, girl behind.
  220.  
  221.     [Fulfilled Dream? - possibly locking out future romantic Twilight interactions?]
  222.  
  223. >Option 3 - Sure; I knew you couldn't resist me. But are you really okay with leaving your own celebration early?
  224.     Twilight's eyes gradually slide up to meet yours; her expression caught somewhere between excitement, anxiety, and disbelief.
  225.  
  226.     Twilight: Really?
  227.  
  228.     When you bob your head, she laughs and flings her arms around your shoulders.
  229.  
  230.     Twilight: Oh gosh, I can't believe this!
  231.  
  232.     Pushing herself back at arms length, she adopts a stern look.
  233.  
  234.     Twilight: No, I really mean I can't believe this; even with your insistence that I find you irresistible, I'm still ecstatic.
  235.  
  236.     Twilight: But, I guess that doesn't matter.
  237.  
  238.     Twilight's smile returns, softening her entire demeanor in the process.
  239.  
  240.     Twilight: I suppose that's one of the things that I have come to lo- really, really like about you.
  241.  
  242.     Twilight: And don't worry about the party; Pinkie told me she can handle keeping everyone busy.
  243.  
  244.     The corner of Twilight's lip curls into an inviting smirk.
  245.  
  246.     Twilight: She said that no one would even notice I was gone, so I'm counting on you to make up for all the attention I'm missing out on.
  247.  
  248.     Twilight giggles, leaning in close again. However, this time she goes for your lips.
  249.  
  250.     The two of you stand there for a long while, not wanting to break the kiss until it's necessary to breathe.
  251.  
  252.     As you break apart to gulp down air, Twilight still continues to smile.
  253.  
  254.     Twilight: So, [Player], I guess it's time for a special study session. I'll be counting on your support...
  255.  
  256.     You nod your head and the two of you leave Sugar Cube Corner together, without a second thought
  257.  
  258.     [Fulfilled Dream? - Proceed directly to lewds]
