  • Asugi: *sigh* Why do they always assume that?
  • Avatar: Asugi, what's wrong? You're muttering to yourself.
  • Asugi: Huh? Oh, Boss. It's nothing. OH! Wait! Hey, buuuddy!
  • Avatar: Um...yeah?
  • Asugi: Ya wanna go into town with yours truly? We'll have a grand old time, I promise!
  • Avatar: Why the sudden invite? Did you need to go shopping for something?
  • Asugi: No, no. I just heard that a new bakery opened up just outside town. They're said to have the most amazing cheesecakes in the land. And I've been looking for someone to go with me.
  • Avatar: Sounds fun, but... Asugi, why waste cheesecake on me? Sounds like a prime dating opportunity!
  • Asugi: Oh, cribbles. Here we go again. Why, oh why, did I expect anything different?
  • Avatar: Hm? Is something wrong?
  • Asugi: Whenever I invite someone to get sweets with me, they get the wrong idea. And when I tell them I don't want a date, they just think I'm being defensive. The worst part is when they get all twinkly eyed and I have to turn them down.
  • Avatar: So that's why you were grumbling to yourself.
  • Asugi: Yeah. I don't want any dates. I just want to enjoy some cheesecake and chat. Is that such a terrible thing?
  • Avatar: I suppose not.
  • Asugi: So I figured I should ask you. I thought of all people, you'd understand. Guess not.
  • Avatar: Haha. Sorry, thought I was helping. I'd love to go eat some cheesecake!
  • Asugi: Thanks! You're a real pal, Boss. I'll just grab my things, and we can go!

(Asugi leaves)

  • Avatar: Haha. Asugi sure loves his sweets...

B Support Edit

  • Asugi: Ah! That really hit the spot. I haven't tasted something so good in ages. That cheesecake was a work of art! Right, Boss? And the presentation! Beautiful! I've never seen plating that impeccable before.
  • Avatar: That pie was pretty tasty too.
  • Asugi: Yes! The crust was flaky and flavorful, but not obtrusively so. And the raspberries... Not too tart, and not too sweet. A balance rarely achieved by even master bakers! It feels as though the gods crafted a divine culinary harmony for my tongue alone.
  • Avatar: Haha.That's an... interesting way of describing food, Asugi. I don't think I ever fully realized just how passionate you are about this stuff.
  • Asugi: I-I wouldn'y say "passionate." I just like tasty things, is all!
  • Avatar: Haha! You're blushing! It's all right, I won't judge. I'm surprised you didn't become a chef, though.
  • Asugi: Eh, we can't all do what we're passionate about for a living. Some things are more important. Anyways, you need to learn to appreciate sweets more, friendo.
  • Avatar: I do? I thought I was appreciating them just fine!
  • Asugi: You kidding me, Boss? You spent more time picking out trinkets to bring back home than you did eating! You were rubbernecking like a regular country bumpkin,too. I'm surprised at you. What's with all this touristy stuff? Ain't that a bit below someone of your station?
  • Avatar: What about you? You were buying out every sweets shop and bakery we came across! Kind of looked like a country bumpkin yourself, if you ask me.
  • Asugi: Hey! It's not my fault. They didn't have places like that back in my Deeprealm.
  • Avatar: Haha. Trust me, I know the feeling I grew up confined to a castle, remember?
  • Asugi: Fair enough. It's too bad they don't let you box up any of their cheesecake, though. It would have been nice to bring it back and share with everyone.
  • Avatar: Why don't we take them all there instead?
  • Asugi: That tiny place? We'd never fit! Oh, I know! I'll just make it myself.
  • Avatar: Make it yourself? How?!
  • Asugi: Oh, I've got my ways. Now that I've tasted it, I think I can whip something up. I'm going to need your help, though. I want to make sure that it's an exact replica.
  • Avatar: Sure! I'll do whatever I can! 

A Support Edit

  • Asugi: OK. I think we're done.
  • Avatar: You did it, Asugi! I don't know how you managed to pull it of, but you did. Every single treat, tart, cake, and cobbler from the bakery, re-created from scratch. Even the cheesecake!
  • Asugi: Oh, hop off. It's not that amazing.
  • Avatar: You got the tastes down perfectly... In fact, these might be a little better. Even I know this can't have possibly been easy. How did you do it?
  • Asugi: I have some connections that managed to get me a list of the bakery's ingredients. From there, it was just a matter of taste and patience to figure out the rest. But, of course, it'd be boring to just make copies, so I added a few of my own twists. Notice the lemon zest on that raspberry tart? That was ol' Asugi's doing.
  • Avatar: Mm. This really is a remarkable achievement, Asugi.
  • Asugi: Yep. But I hate to say I can't do this again, I don't want to steal their business. Ain't gonna let anyone call me a thief.
  • Avatar: That's very admirable of you. Now, let's grab everyone and have ourselves a party!
  • Asugi: Sounds good to me, Boss!
  • Avatar: Seems a shame, though... I don't know when I'll taste cheesecake this good again.
  • Asugi: Aw, don't make that face. I can make you tons of different sweets. You'll forget about this stuff in no time.
  • Avatar: Really?
  • Asugi: Sure! You're my sweets buddy now. You ever crave some, just ask. Course, you'll have to help out some. No such things as free desserts.
  • Avatar: Haha. Thanks. I'm honored to be your sweets buddy. Maybe we can open a bakery together after the war?
  • Asugi: Hey now, don't get too crazy there. You're a prince, remember? And I'm a ninja. We've got duties to see to. Besides, can you imagine the figure we'd cut in a bakery?
  • Avatar: I can. I think it'd be great! A prince-ninja bakery! But... you're right. Duty first. Maybe we could do a bake sale every now and then though.
  • Asugi: Hey... that ain't a bad idea. I think I'm gonna hold you to that one, Boss.
  • Avatar: Good. I wouldn't have it any other way.

  • Avatar: *Pant pant* Oh, Asugi! C-could I get your help?
  • Asugi: Hey there, Boss. What's wrong? You seem a little out of breath.
  • Avatar: We've been rai— Did you just call me "Boss"? That's not as...imaginative as your other nicknames.
  • Asugi: I know, I know. I WAS thinking "Bubbles." but something about it just didn't sit right. I've been having trouble coming up with good nicknames these days... Anyways, what do you need?
  • Avatar: We've been raided!
  • Asugi: Raided? I didn't hear anything.
  • Avatar: I mean our food! Someone managed to break into the mess's storage room!
  • Asugi: ...Isn't there a watch assigned to that room round the clock?
  • Avatar: Yes! And they didn't see anything! Which is why this is such a problem! We have no idea how they got in! Which means it could happen again.
  • Asugi: I see...
  • Avatar: Asugi, do you have any idea how this might have happened?
  • Asugi: ...Nope. Nah. Not a one. Mm-mm. No, ma'am.
  • Avatar: Um...OK. Suspicious answers aside, if you think of something, please, come to me. I'll be headed the investigation personally. This is too important to delegate. If they hit our food again, they may take far, far more. And if we don't have food, we don't have an army.
  • Asugi: Yes'm. I'll keep my peepers peeping. Now, if you'll be so kind, I'll take my leave, I have some affairs to see to.
  • Avatar: Hm...No, It couldn't be. Asugi wouldn't lie to me. I should get back to my investigation.

B Support Edit

  • Avatar: *pant pant* Asugi!
  • Asugi: Out of breath again? Let me guess...
  • Avatar: Yes. Those thieves hit our food supply again.
  • Asugi: I see.
  • Avatar: I swear I will catch the dastards that did this and bring them to justice! If this keeps up, I shudder to think what will happen to us. Thankfully, they've only managed to get away with a trivial amount of food so far...
  • Asugi: You've got a right to be angry, I s'pose.
  • Avatar: Huh?
  • Asugi: Stealing is a crime, after all. It's not right, taking from others for one's own gain. But, then, how many people steal food out of selfishness?
  • Avatar: ...What do you mean?
  • Asugi: I mean that there can be good reasons for stealing. See, this may be hard to believe, but not everyone who's poor deserves to be so. And nobles have more wealth than they can shake a candy cane at. The world could use some...rebalancing now and then. That's why we have noble thieves— to take from the rich and give to the poor.
  • Avatar: But how are we supposed to prevent chaos if we just let people steal? What did nobles do to deserve to lose their property?
  • Asugi: *snort* What did they do to earn it? A little chaos can be a good thing. Besides, you'll find that the poor aren't greedy. They take what they need. Like you said, only a small amount of food was missing from our stores.
  • Avatar: I...I mean, that's true, I guess...
  • Asugi: Anyway. That's all. Catch you later, Boss.
  • Avatar: Asugi! Wait!
  • Asugi: Yes'm?
  • Avatar: I apologize in advance, but I must ask. Did you...?
  • Asugi: You think I stole it? Heh. Can't say I blame you after that little speech. Don't worry, though. Wasn't me. But everything'll be clear soon enough.
  • Avatar: Hm...

A Support Edit

  • Avatar: Asugi! Is it true?! Were you the ones that caught the thieves?!
  • Asugi: Damn it. Who ratted?
  • Avatar: It never occurred to me that they would be children. How did they even get in?
  • Asugi: There was a hole hidden in the back, hidden behind a mound of dirt.
  • Avatar: If you knew this, why didn't you say anything about it? This is a major security risk! What if someone else had found it?!
  • Asugi: The hole is tiny. Barely big enough for a hound. It was pretty clear no adult could get through it, and there's no other way in. Besides, it's pretty much always children who steal food. Especially in that amount.
  • Avatar: Huh?
  • Asugi: Adults always go after money. They understand they need more than food. But kids are more straightforward. They follow their stomachs. Anyways. I don't want to make a big deal out of this. For their sake. You're not going to help them much by giving them anything. These kids have parents. Which means anything you give the kids ain't theirs.
  • Avatar: And you don't think the parents would do the right thing...
  • Asugi: I visited them. They're not the virtuous type. It's hard to be virtuous and poor. I did arrange something with the local grocer, though. Heard he was trustworthy. He agreed to look out for them as well as he could. Make sure they weren't hungry. And I got the kids to promise they wouldn't steal so long as they were fed. Hope one of them takes it to heart.
  • Avatar: Y-you did all that?
  • Asugi: Eh? Sure. Why not? Didn't have anything better to do.
  • Avatar: I guess I just...didn't expect it of you.
  • Asugi: Heh. Glad to know I inspire such a raw, trusting admiration.
  • Avatar: Er, not that I ever had a bad opinion of you. I think I just...misunderstood you. You've taught me some important things, Asugi. We need to keep in mind the people we're supposedly trying to do this for. Without them, all out efforts amount to little more than another power struggle. Even if we don't see them, we must always keep them in mind.
  • Asugi: Guess you're not as naive after all, Boss. Well, if something else comes up, let me know. Later.
  • Avater: Thank you, Asugi.

S Support Edit

  • Avatar: Asuuuugiiiii.
  • Asugi: Hey, you. Need something?
  • Avatar: You went to check in on the kids who were stealing from us, didn't you?
  • Asugi: What? I don't— You got spies on me or something? I could have sworn I wasn't being followed.
  • Avatar: A little bird told me. I guess this explains all the making you've been doing lately. I figured your sweet tooth was acting up, but it looks like it was just your heart! Haha, you should be proud, Asugi. It's a good thing you did.
  • Asugi: Oh, cram it. Anybody'd do the same. Who doesn't like to look after kids?
  • Avatar: Plenty of people. You're much kinder than you let on. Speaking of which...I wanted to apologize. For suspecting you were the food thief. It just...it seemed so obvious. You had the skills and the knowledge. And you've got an insatiable appetite for desserts... I couldn't help but suspect...
  • Asugi: Yeah, I know. You're pretty easy to read. Most earnest, naive types are. But I like that about you. It's what makes you admirable.
  • Avatar: Thank...you? But, really, I must apologize for thinking you had anything to do with it.
  • Asugi: I'd be real annoyed if it were anyone else, but I think I can let it slide this once. But only because it's you.
  • Avatar: Huh? Why?
  • Asugi: Heh. Guess I gotta come clean. I fancy you, Boss.
  • Avatar: What?! A-Asugi!
  • Asugi: Haha. Don't sound so pleased.
  • Avatar: No, I didn't mean... I meant... That makes me very happy, Asugi. I "fancy" you too.
  • Asugi: Huh?
  • Avatar: You didn't notice? Who'd you think's been leaving all of those candy apples in your quarters?
  • Asugi: Th-that was you?
  • Avatar: Yes. I wanted to pay you back for what you did for those kids. And, well, we all love giving presents to the object of our secret affections. You're so kind, Asugi. I think it's very... admirable.
  • Asugi: W-would you quit saying the "k" word?!
  • Avatar: Heehee! You're so cute when you're embarrassed.
  • Asugi: G-ghh... Whatever... But...I am glad we feel the same way about each other.
  • Avatar: As am I. I think this might just be the start of a beautiful life together, Asugi.
  • Asugi: Me too, Avatar. This life and the next one, too.
  • Asugi: You're sweeter than sweets, my sweet. Let's celebrate our delicious love with a giant wedding cake! I'm serious. Biggest. Cake. EVER.

C Support Edit

  • Asugi: Ah, mission accomplished. I got a ton of useful information tonight. Today's undercover work was riskier than usual. I almost got caught this time. Almost doesn't count though, heh heh. Time to share what I learned and go relax.
  • Avatar: Asugi! You're finally home...
  • Asugi: M-Mom?! Shouldn't you be asleep? It's really late.
  • Avatar: I realize that. But I'll stay up as late as it takes to see you home safely.
  • Asugi: I'm fine, Mom. It's an early morning tomorrow. You should be asleep!
  • Avatar: I try, but it's no use. I lie awake worrying about you.
  • Asugi: Look, I get sent out on these recon trips because I'm good at them. We all risk our lives when we're out on our missions, and I'm no different.
  • Avatar: Solo missions are different, though. I don't like that you put yourself in such danger without any support.
  • Asugi: I told you, I'm fine. I do what I have to, and that's the end of it. If you stay up all night, you'll just be a liability to all of us tomorrow.
  • Avatar: That's not fair, Asugi. Don't think you can get out of discussing this.
  • Asugi: Look, it's late. I'm exhausted. We should both get some rest.
  • Avatar: ...All right. But this is not over.

B Support Edit

  • Asugi: ... I've successfully infiltrated the enemy base. Piece of cake! (Mmm...cake.) Now to scope out what the leaders here are up to. They've been acting suspicious. If I can just find some evidence that they're planning something...
  • Avatar: I suggest saving that heavily guarded building to the right for last, just in case.
  • Asugi: WHAA—?! What...? MOM?! What in the name of all that is sweet and holy are you doing here?
  • Avatar: I heard you trying to sneak out, and so I thought I'd tag along.
  • Asugi: Wh-why would you follow me? This place is dangerous!
  • Avatar: I told you. You need support on these hazardous missions, so I'm volunteering.
  • Asugi: You shouldn't be here, Mom. This is MY mission, not yours!
  • Avatar: What does it matter, so long as it's accomplished? If anything, that should be easier with two of us attacking the problem.
  • Asugi: SHH! Be quiet!
  • Avatar: Mmrph...!
  • Asugi: Not another word! The enemy patrol is heading this way...
  • Avatar: Fine...
  • Asugi: *sigh* OK, they're gone. Gods, my heart is racing. I was certain they'd spotted us.
  • Avatar: Haha, I doubt it. They never came anywhere near our position.
  • Asugi: Geez, Mom. I know parents like to bond with their kids, but this is overkill!
  • Avatar: There's no such thing as overkill when it comes to looking after my son.
  • Asugi: Ugh, enough is enough. I can't think straight when you're here. This whole mission is a bust. Let's go.
  • Avatar: Er...what happened to the suspicious leaders? The enemy plans?
  • Asugi: Come on, Mom. I know a shortcut back. It's time to go home.
  • Avatar: But the moon's just set. We have plenty of time to finish things here.
  • Asugi: It's over. Come on, let's hurry back.
  • Avatar: Well, it's your mission, I suppose...

A Support Edit

  • Avatar: What are we tackling tonight? Troop movements? Message interception?
  • Asugi: ... WE are not going anywhere. You're not coming along.
  • Avatar: I insist, Asugi. I won't stay home while you put yourself in danger.
  • Asugi: Mom, you're being unreasonable. Don't you trust me?
  • Avatar: My trust in you won't help me much if they have to carry you back in several pieces. I'm your mother. The unreasonable thing is you asking me not to worry. I'm a powerful warrior in my own right. Why shouldn't I help my son?
  • Asugi: We each have our own part to play in this war, Mom. I'm a ninja, so I fulfill the roles that my training has prepared me for. When you follow me, it puts us both in very real danger. Instead of focusing on the mission, I can only think of protecting you.
  • Avatar: I meant well, Asugi. It's just...
  • Asugi: ...
  • Avatar: How would I live with myself if you were caught on one of these solo missions? It tortures me to do less than I possibly could for you...!
  • Asugi: Mom... Look, this is embarrassing, so I'm only going to say it once.
  • Avatar: Oh?
  • Asugi: When I got back from my mission that one night and I saw you waiting up for me... I was so happy.
  • Avatar: Really?
  • Asugi: Really. It made me realize that I had a real home to come back to. Knowing you're out there, waiting for me, makes me desperate to make it back home. No matter how much danger I'm in or what I have to do to make it back safely... I always will. I will always, always come back home to you.
  • Avatar: Asugi...
  • Asugi: That's why I need you to stay here. My home is wherever YOU are. I can't do what I do without knowing that I have a loving home waiting for me. As long as you're here, safe and happy, I'll never lose heart.
  • Avatar: ... All right. If that's really how you feel, then I'll restrain myself. I want you to be alive, mind you, but I also want you to be happy.
  • Asugi: Mom... Thank you. You don't know what that means to me.
  • Avatar: There's still the problem of what I'll do instead of sleeping, but I have one idea. How about if I prepare your favorite foods for you? You're hungry when you get home, I'm sure.
  • Asugi: That...would be AMAZING!
  • Avatar: It's a deal. You'll be sure to come home, and I'll be sure you're properly welcomed.
  • Asugi: Thanks, Mom. I love you.

  • Azura: I cannot be expected to sleep soundly while my son is in danger.
  • Asugi: Look. I get sent out on these recon trips because I'm good at them. We all risk our lives when we're out on our missions, and I'm no different.
  • Azura: I just can't get used to sending my son out to battle all on his own... The least I can do is stay awake until you're back home, safe and sound.

  • Asugi: It's over. Come on, let's hurry back.
  • Felicia: A-all right...

A Support Edit

  • Felicia: Hello, Asugi. Where will tonight's mission take us?
  • Asugi: ... WE are not going anywhere. You're not coming along.
  • Felicia: I'm not interested in a debate, darling. I can't stand by as you go into danger.
  • Asugi: Mom, you're being unreasonable. Don't you trust me?
  • Felicia: Trust is all well and good... But I couldn't live with myself if I wasn't there to help you when you needed me! What kind of mother looks the other way as her son charges into danger every night?
  • Asugi: We each have our own part to play in this war, Mom. I'm a ninja, so I fulfill the roles that my training has prepared me for. When you follow me, it puts us both in very real danger. Instead of focusing on the mission, I can only think of protecting you.
  • Felicia: I'm sorry, darling. I don't mean to make things harder on you. But I get so worried that I can't stay away.
  • Asugi: ...
  • Felicia: What if you were captured? Or worse? These are the fears that keep me from staying home!
  • Asugi: Mom... Look, this is embarrassing, so I'm only going to say it once.
  • Felicia: Hmm...?
  • Asugi: When I got back from my mission that one night and I saw you waiting up for me... I was really happy.
  • Felicia: Truly?
  • Asugi: Yes. It made me realize that I had a real home to come back to. Knowing you're out there, waiting for me, makes me desperate to make it back home. No matter how much danger I'm in or what I have to do to make it back safely... I always will. I will always, always come back home to you.
  • Felicia: Asugi...
  • Asugi: That's why I need you to stay here. My home is wherever YOU are. I can't do what I do without knowing that I have a loving home waiting for me. As long as you're here, safe and happy, I'll never lose heart.
  • Felicia: ... Of course, darling. When you put it that way, perhaps I was being a bit selfish. I'll try my hardest to calm down and let you go on your missions in peace.
  • Asugi: Mom... Thank you. You don't know what that means to me.
  • Felicia: I can't promise that I'll manage to sleep, mind you... But I can use those hours productively to get food ready for you to come home to.
  • Asugi: That...would be AMAZING!
  • Felicia: I'll whip up all the sweets you can stomach! They're all yours, so long as you come back safe. I love you, darling.
  • Asugi: Thanks, Mom. I love you too.

With Mozu (Mother) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Asugi: Ah, mission accomplished. I got a ton of useful information tonight. Today's undercover was riskier than usual. I almost got caught this time. "Almost" doesn't count though, he he. Time to share what I learned and go relax.
  • Mozu: Asugi! Welcome home, honey!
  • Asugi: M-Mom?! Shouldn't you be asleep? It's late.
  • Mozu: It's not...*yawn*...that late. I didn't want to hit the hay until you got home.
  • Asugi: I'm fine, Mom. It' an early morning tomorrow. You should be asleep!
  • Mozu: Well, I tried, but...I was too worried about you to get any shut-eye.
  • Asugi: Look, I get sent on these recon trips because I'm good at them. We all risk our lives when we're out on our missions, and I'm no different.
  • Mozu: But you don't get to take any friends along on your missions, right? That's the part I don't like. Anyway, I thought you might like to see a friendly face when you walked in the door.
  • Asugi: I told you, I'm fine. I do what I do, and that the end of it. If you stay up all night, you'll be a liability to all of us tomorrow.
  • Mozu: Oh...you mean that?
  • Asugi: Look, it's late. I'm exhausted. We should both get some rest.
  • Mozu: Yeah... It's time we both turned in. Good night, honey!

B Support Edit

  • Asugi: I've successfully infiltrated the enemy base. Piece of cake! (Mmm...cake.) Now to scope out what the leaders are up to. They've been acting suspicious. If I can just find some evidence that they're up to something...
  • Mozu: Sounds like a plan, honey!
  • Asugi: WHAA—?! What...? MOM?! What in the name of all that is sweet and holy are you doing here?
  • Mozu: Oh, I came after you. Surprised?
  • Asugi: Wh-why would you follow me? This place is dangerous!
  • Mozu: Aw, honey, you know I don't like it when you're alone out here.
  • Asugi: You shouldn't be here, Mom. This is MY mission, not yours!
  • Mozu: Sure, I know! But two heads are better than one, right?
  • Asugi: SHH! Be quiet!
  • Mozu: M-mmph...!
  • Asugi: Not another word! The enemy patrol is heading this way...
  • Mozu: ...Is the coast clear yet?
  • Asugi: *sigh* OK, they're gone. Gods, my heart is racing. I was certain they'd spotted us.
  • Mozu: Phew... You had me going there.
  • Asugi: Geez, Mom. I know parents like to bond with their kids, but this is overkill!
  • Mozu: Wh-whaddaya mean? Can't a mom look after her son?
  • Asugi: Ugh, enough is enough. I can't think straight when you're here. This whole mission is a bust. Let's go.
  • Mozu: Huh...?
  • Asugi: Come on, Mom. I know a shortcut back. It's time to go home.
  • Mozu: Um, Asugi, you did the breaking, but you forgot the entering. Shouldn't we—?
  • Asugi: It's over. Come on, let's hurry back.

  • Asugi: Mom, you're being unreasonable. Don't you trust me?
  • Mozu: You know I do, honey! But accidents happen, and I wish you'd let me stick around in case you get into a jam.
  • Asugi: We each have our part to play in this war, Mom. I'm a ninja, so I fulfill the rolls that my training has prepared me for. When you follow me, it puts us both in real danger. Instead of focusing on my mission, I can only think of protecting you.
  • Mozu: That makes sense...but it's not gonna be much comfort to me if you get hurt.
  • Asugi: ...
  • Mozu: What if you get into a fix without anyone to help you out of it? The more I think about it, the more nervous I get, until I can't sit still!
  • Asugi: Mom... Look, this is embarrassing, so I'm only going to say this once.
  • Mozu: Say what?
  • Asugi: When I got back from my mission that one night and I saw you waiting up for me... I was really happy.
  • Mozu: Were you really?
  • Asugi: I was. It made me realize that I had a real home to come back to. Knowing you're out there, waiting for me, makes me desperate to make it back home. No matter how much danger I'm in or what I have to do to make it back safely...I always will. I will always, always come back home to you.

  • Mozu: ... Yeah... I give. You're worn me down, honey. I'd be a terrible mother to keep pushing after hearing all that.
  • Asugi: Mom... Thank you. You don't know what that means to me.
  • Mozu: From now on, I'll stick to keeping the place nice for you. Hey, I know! How about if I cook for you? Sweet snacks for my sweet son!
  • Asugi: That...would be AMAZING!
  • Mozu: Consider it done! I'll make sure there's always sweets ready when you get home from your missions. I love you, honey. Whatever you want me to do, you got it.
  • Asugi: Thanks, Mom. I love you too.

  • Asugi: Ah, mission accomplished. I got a ton of useful information tonight. Today's undercover work was riskier than usual. I almost got caught this time. "Almost" doesn't count though, heh heh. Time to share what I learned and go relax.
  • Hinoka: Asugi! Thank the gods you're safe!
  • Asugi: M-Mom?! Shouldn't you be asleep? It's really late.
  • Hinoka: How can I sleep when my son is alone in enemy territory?!
  • Asugi: I'm fine, Mom. It's an early morning tomorrow. You should be asleep!
  • Hinoka: You think that's it? That I'm willing to leave it at that? You could be killed!
  • Asugi: Look, I get sent out on these recon trips because I'm good at them. We all risk our lives when we're out on our missions, and I'm no different.
  • Hinoka: But they're sending you on them without any support. That's what worries me. I feel like I owe it to you to stay up until you come home safe and sound.
  • Asugi: I told you, I'm fine. I do what I have to, and that's the end of it. If you stay up all night, you'll just be a liability to all of us tomorrow.
  • Hinoka: That's NOT the end of it-

  • Hinoka: Careful, dear. It could be a trap.
  • Asugi: WHAA-?! What...? MOM?! What in the name of all that is sweet and holy are you doing here?
  • Hinoka: It's simple. I followed you.
  • Asugi: Wh-Why would you follow me? This place is dangerous!
  • Hinoka: I told you, these solo missions are risky. Someone has to keep an eye on you.
  • Asugi: You shouldn't be here, Mom. This is MY mission, not yours!
  • Hinoka: What, do you think I can't hold my own? How hard can a simple scouting mission be?
  • Asugi: SHH! Be quiet!
  • Hinoka: M-mmph!
  • Asugi: Not another word! The enemy patrol is heading this way...
  • Hinoka: That was uncalled for...
  • Asugi: *sigh* OK, they're gone. Gods, my heart is racing. I was certain they'd spotted us.
  • Hinoka: You worry too much.
  • Asugi: Geez, Mom. I know parents like to bond with their kids, but this is overkill!
  • Hinoka: On the contrary. There're no lengths I wouldn't go to for my darling son.
  • Asugi: Ugh, enough is enough. I can't think straight when you're here. This whole mission is a bust. Let's go.
  • Hinoka: A bust? But we weren't spotted...
  • Asugi: Come on, Mom. I know a shortcut back. It's time to go home.
  • Hinoka: Asugi, you can't abandon your mission before it starts!

A Support Edit

  • Hinoka: Evening, Asugi. What's in the cards for tonight?
  • Asugi: ...We are not going anywhere. You're not coming along.
  • Hinoka: This isn't up for discussion. I refuse to just stand by while you're in danger.
  • Asugi: Mom, you're being unreasonable. Don't you trust me?
  • Hinoka: Yes, but everyone slips up sometimes. You get sent on these solo missions so often that I don't like the odds. They would be a lot better if you had me around to watch your back.

  • Hinoka: I know. I know... but that doesn't do anything to ease my mind.
  • Asugi: ...
  • Hinoka: I've been at war long enough to know all the horrible things that can happen. Thinking about them happening to you is the worse torture than anything!
  • Asugi: Mom... Look, this is embarrassing, so I'm only going to say it once.
  • Hinoka: OK...?
  • Asugi: When I got back from my mission that one night and I saw you waiting up for me... I was really happy.

  • Hinoka: ...All right, Asugi. You win. I'll stay home if you really want. The mission's more important than these silly feelings, right?
  • Asugi: Mom... Thank you. You don't know what that means to me.
  • Hinoka: I'll try to put the worry aside when I'm waiting for you to come home. Maybe it would help to keep myself busy by making you snacks...
  • Asugi: That... would be AMAZING!
  • Hinoka: I'll make you lots of sweet things to come home to after a tough job. Just don't let the thoughts of sweets distract you during the mission!
  • Asugi: Thanks, Mom. I love you too.

C Support Edit

  • Asugi: Ah, mission accomplished. I got a ton of useful information tonight. Today's undercover work was riskier than usual. I almost got caught this time. "Almost" doesn't count thought, heh heh. Time to share what I learned and go relax.

With Saizo (Father) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Asugi: All right, I think this batch is about ready to pour into the molds. Heh. This might be the best candy I've ever made. Wait until the villagers have some...
  • Saizo: Hmph.
  • Asugi: Hm? Oh, it's you.
  • Saizo: I thought you might be the perpetrator of that sickly sweet smell.
  • Asugi: Dad! Why are you always so down on my hobbies?
  • Saizo: It's beyond me how you can stomach so much candy. What it must do to your stomach...your teeth....your brain...
  • Asugi: Hey, you told me when you asked me to come with you that I could live as I please. So that's exactly what I'm doing.
  • Saizo: But why make these giant batches of candy when you're the only one eating it?
  • Asugi: Oh, I'm hardly the only one. The kids in the village love my candy...and the girls, too.
  • Saizo: What?! I don't believe what I'm hearing... This whole candy-making hobby is just a pretext to pick up women?
  • Asugi: Huh...? What the hell, Dad?!
  • Saizo: You spineless worm! I didn't come here to upbraid you about your hobby... But may the gods help you if you do anything to tarnish this army's dignity!
  • Asugi: If that's how it's gonna be...maybe the problem's not with me, but with your weird ideas about dignity.
  • Saizo: ...What did you just say?
  • Asugi: Forget it.
  • Saizo: I'm leaving before you embarrass yourself further.
  • Asugi: Fine with me. This candy's not gonna make itself. Ugh...

B Support Edit

  • Saizo: Asugi...I owe you an apology.
  • Asugi: You? Apologizing? This feels...weird...
  • Saizo: When you said you intended to share your candy with the women of the village...I instantly assumed it was a ploy to win their hearts. That was wrong of me.
  • Asugi: Oh, did someone clue you in?
  • Saizo: Yes. I'm told this is, in fact, a ploy for gathering intelligence.
  • Asugi: Heheh. They don't call it "sweet talking" for nothing. You'd be surprised what you learn.
  • Saizo: But why didn't you say anything? This could have all been cleared up with a few words from you.
  • Asugi: Because if EVERYONE knows, then the technique becomes useless. Besides, you weren't too far off the mark. I'm not just here to win. I'm also here to make friends. Getting to know the people I'm supposed to protect helps keep my mind on the goal.
  • Saizo: I see...it's certainly different from my approach. Your way would never have occurred to me.
  • Asugi: What, is that "beyond you" too?
  • Saizo: No, I meant only to say...you have different skills, but you find a way to put them to use as a ninja. There is nothing in that for me to criticize. We have our differences, it's true. For a father and son, we have little in common. But I'm starting to think there may be nothing wrong with that.
  • Asugi: Dad...
  • Saizo: You're sure of yourself, which is what counts. Far be it from me to upend that. You should go your own way in life.
  • Asugi: This is your weird way of giving your approval, right?
  • Saizo: I wouldn't go that far. Let's not say I approve, but rather that I...condone. And that I'll listen when you try to tell me something.
  • Asugi: Heh. That's a good start. Thanks, Dad.
  • Saizo: Hmph...

A Support Edit

  • Asugi: Dad, you're doing the creepy stare thing. Cut it out.
  • Saizo: I was thinking about that name of yours...
  • Asugi: Which one? Asugi, or Saizo?
  • Saizo: I meant Asugi. When did you start calling yourself that?
  • Asugi: I forget exactly, but it was sometime during my stay in the Deeprealms. After I found out what my name meant and the training it would impose on me...I just wanted to be rid of the whole thing.
  • Saizo: ...I see.
  • Asugi: "Asugi" is a word in one of the languages they speak out there. It means "gray." Perfect for a wishy-washy kid like me, huh? I picked it half as a joke, but I'm attached to it now.
  • Saizo: Even so, it makes me uneasy. It's too different from your birth name.
  • Asugi: But you're using it anyway. You're telling me it's OK to walk my own path. I really like that. Feels like, for the first time, you're approving of a decision I made. It's almost as satisfying as the time I had my first lollipop...
  • Saizo: ...I'll take that in the spirit it was meant.
  • Asugi: Anyway, I've been thinking, and I'm going to be the sixth Saizo after all.
  • Saizo: What?! What's gotten into you? I thought you hated the pressures associated with that name?
  • Asugi: Yeah, well...I changed my mind. Sure, I'm not like you. But you were willing to meet me halfway. I'm Asugi to you now, not just another in the line of Saizos. So I thought I'd be a jerk not to do the same for you. Besides, I can't let the Saizo name die with you after this long.
  • Saizo: You needn't worry about that. Five generations is plenty.
  • Asugi: Haha, I never thought I'd hear that from you of all people. I thought you were way too stubborn to stick up for your son that much.
  • Saizo: Say what you will.
  • Asugi: It's OK, Dad. When I take up the Saizo name, it won't be out of obligation. I'll do it because I want to. If I understand right, it's a Hoshidan word that means "color bringer." And I like the idea that a wishy-washy, gray guy like me could be that someday. Gotta set my sights high, right?
  • Saizo: That's a rather poetic interpretation. You may be reading too much into it. My missions are rather dark and dreary.
  • Asugi: What's wrong with showing some imagination? Is that off limits, too?
  • Saizo: This idle talk serves us nothing. But I'll keep your ambitions in mind. You've made a wise decision today, Asugi.
  • Asugi: ...Sure.
  • Saizo: A color bringer, hmm? I wouldn't have characterized my father that way either. But this world is ever changing, and our line must change with it. Perhaps the war will be over by the time you become the sixth Saizo. Then your missions might have a wider palette than the blacks and reds of mine.
  • Asugi: That'd be nice. Though as the next Saizo, I'm prepared for whatever I'm called on to do. I need to honor the name, you know? Make my predecessors proud. If there comes a time when you decide I'm worthy of the Saizo name...then go ahead and call me that. Just like you're calling me Asugi now.
  • Saizo: As you wish. It is my hope that the day comes before I grow too old. That said, I don't intend to relinquish the name to you anytime soon. You threw the name away once. It won't be as easy as that to reclaim.
  • Asugi: Heh! If it was easy, it wouldn't be worth doing, now would it?
  • Saizo: ...Heh.

  • Kagero: I beg to differ. These recon missions are too dangerous for a lone agent.
  • Asugi: Mom, you're being unreasonable. Don't you trust me?
  • Kagero: It is nothing to do with trust! It is simply good practice to work in pairs. In fact, as I am the more experienced ninja, maybe it's you who should be my second.
  • Asugi: We each have our own part to play in this war, Mom. I fulfill the roles that my training has prepared me for. When you follow me, it puts us both in very real danger. Instead of focusing on the mission, I can only think of protecting you.
  • Kagero: That is a problem. I'm just not sure how to reconcile it with my fears.
  • Asugi: ...
  • Kagero: What if a mission went awry and I was nowhere near to pull you out? These are exactly the thoughts that keep me up at night!
  • Asugi: Mom... Look, this is embarrassing, so I'm only going to say it once.
  • Kagero: Say what?
  • Asugi: When I got back from my mission that one night and I saw you waiting up for me... I was really happy.
  • Kagero: You were?
  • Asugi: I was. It made me realize that I had a real home to come back to. Knowing you're out there, waiting for me, makes me desperate to make it back home. No matter how much danger I'm in or what I have to do to make it back safely... I always will. I will always, always come back home to you.
  • Kagero: Asugi, I—
  • Asugi: That's why I need you to stay here. My home is wherever YOU are. I can't do what I do without knowing that I have a loving home waiting for me. As long as you're here, safe and happy, I'll never lose heart.
  • Kagero: ... I hadn't realized you felt that way. If that's the case, I won't interfere further. The least I can do as your mother is to grant you space to work.
  • Asugi: Mom... Thank you. You don't know what that means to me.
  • Kagero: From now on, instead of staying awake worrying, I'll stay awake cooking. That way, you'll have food waiting for you when you return. You like sweets, yes?

  • Setsuna: You are, though... You always go out on your own. I don't like it. But I couldn't do anything except stay up to see if you were OK.
  • Asugi: I told you, I'm fine. I do what I have to, and that's the end of it. If you stay up all night, you'll just be a liability to all of us tomorrow.
  • Setsuna: Wow, Asugi.
  • Asugi: Look, it's late. I'm exhausted. We should both get some rest.
  • Setsuna: ...OK.

B Support Edit

  • Asugi: I've successfully infiltrated the enemy base. Piece of cake! (Mmm...cake.) Now to scope out what the leaders here are up to. They've been acting suspicious. If I can just find some evidence that they're planning something...
  • Setsuna: Fingers crossed...
  • Asugi: WHAA-?! What...? MOM?! What in the name of all that is sweet and holy are you doing here?
  • Setsuna: Um...I followed you?
  • Asugi: Wh-why would you follow me? This place is dangerous!
  • Setsuna: I couldn't let you go alone on a mission again. It's too scary to think about...
  • Asugi: You shouldn't be here, Mom. This is MY mission, not yours!
  • Setsuna: Are you worried I'll mess up? What if I stay back here and cover you with my bow?
  • Asugi: SHH! Be quiet!
  • Setsuna: M-mmph...
  • Asugi: Not another word! The enemy patrol is heading this way...
  • Setsuna: OK...I'll be quiet.
  • Asugi: *sigh* OK, they're gone. Gods, my heart is racing. I was certain they'd spotted us.
  • Setsuna: Wow, Asugi. I couldn't even spot them...
  • Asugi: Geez, Mom. I know parents like to bond with their kids, but this is overkill!
  • Setsuna: Is it? I worry about you a lot, that's all...
  • Asugi: Ugh, enough is enough. I can't think straight when you're here. This whole mission is a bust. Let's go.
  • Setsuna: Go...?
  • Asugi: Come on, Mom. I know a shortcut back. It's time to go home.
  • Setsuna: But...the mission...
  • Asugi: It's over. Come on, let's hurry back.
  • Setsuna: All right...

A Support Edit

  • Setsuna: Asugi? What's the plan for tonight?
  • Asugi: ...We are not going anywhere. You're not coming along.
  • Setsuna: But I have to... I can't let you do dangerous missions by yourself.
  • Asugi: Mom, you're being unreasonable. Don't you trust me?
  • Setsuna: Why does it have to be you, anyway? Maybe I could do it instead?
  • Asugi: We each have our own part to play in this war, Mom. I'm a ninja, so I fulfill the roles that my training has prepared me for. When you follow me, it puts us both in very real danger. Instead of focusing on the mission, I can only think of protecting you.
  • Setsuna: I know... It's just that...
  • Asugi: ...
  • Setsuna: It drives me crazy wondering if you're OK or if something horrible happened. I get restless and have to do something. Or go somewhere.
  • Asugi: Mom... Look, this is embarrassing, so I'm only going to say it once.
  • Setsuna: Hmm...?
  • Asugi: When I got back from my mission that one night and I saw you waiting up for me... I was really happy.
  • Setsuna: Oh...
  • Asugi: It made me realize that I had a real home to come back to. Knowing you're out there, waiting for me, makes me desperate to make it back home. No matter how much danger I'm in or what I have to do to make it back safely... I always will. I will always, always come back home to you.
  • Setsuna: Asugi...
  • Asugi: That's why I need you to stay here. My home is wherever YOU are. I can't do what I do without knowing that I have a loving home waiting for me. As long as you're here, safe and happy, I'll never lose heart.
  • Setsuna: ...OK. I'll stay hands off. It sounds like that's what you need.
  • Asugi: Mom... Thank you. You don't know what that means to me.
  • Setsuna: I'll make sure things are nice and...homey...around the house for you. And I'll fix you some nice meals so you're not hungry when you come back.
  • Asugi: That...would be AMAZING!
  • Setsuna: Heehee... I'll cook up pastries and sweets and stuff, just for you. And your job will be coming home to eat your loving mother's food.
  • Asugi: Thanks, Mom. I love you too.

  • Oboro: There you are, Asugi!
  • Asugi: M-Mom?! Shouldn't you be asleep? It's really late.
  • Oboro: I know! I've been waiting up for you to make sure you got home safe.
  • Asugi: I'm fine, Mom. It's an early morning tomorrow. You should be asleep!
  • Oboro: Sleep? How can I sleep, knowing my son is risking his life alone out there?
  • Asugi: Look, I get sent out on these recon trips because I'm good at them. We all risk our lives when we're out on our missions, and I'm no different.
  • Oboro: But it kills me knowing you're on these missions with no support. I couldn't live with myself if I didn't at least stay up to see you come home.
  • Asugi: I told you, I'm fine. I do what I have to, and that's the end of it. If you stay up all night, you'll just be a liability to all of us tomorrow.
  • Oboro: Listen, you...

  • Oboro: I followed you out here. Pretty sneaky, eh?
  • Asugi: Wh-why would you follow me? This place is dangerous!
  • Oboro: I know it is! That's why I'm worried about you going on all these solo missions.
  • Asugi: You shouldn't be here, Mom. This is MY mission, not yours!
  • Oboro: It was. But now it's OUR mission!
  • Asugi: SHH! Be quiet!

  • Asugi: Geez, Mom. I know parents like to bond with their kids, but this is overkill!
  • Oboro: No such thing! I'd go to any lengths for my darling boy.
  • Asugi: Ugh, enough is enough. I can't think straight when you're here. This whole mission is a bust. Let's go.
  • Oboro: But we're just getting started!
  • Asugi: Come on, Mom. I know a shortcut back. It's time to go home.

  • Asugi: ...WE are not going anywhere. You're not coming along.
  • Oboro: Ohhh yes, I am. I'm not staying home one more night while you're out there alone.
  • Asugi: Mom, you're being unreasonable. Don't you trust me?
  • Oboro: How can I be reasonable when my son is heading into danger night after night? Show me a mother who isn't worried, and I'll show you a bad mother! Besides, you know I can handle myself in a fight.
  • Asugi: We each have our own part to play in this war, Mom. I'm a ninja, so I fulfill the roles that my training has prepared me for. When you follow me, it puts us both in very real danger. Instead of focusing on the mission, I can only think of protecting you.
  • Oboro: I just worry so much though.
  • Asugi: ...
  • Oboro: As soon as you leave, my imagination starts running wild with worst-case scenarios. And once it does, there's nothing I can do but check up on you!
  • Asugi: Mom... Look, this is embarrassing, so I'm only going to say it once.
  • Oboro: Go on...
  • Asugi: When I got back from my mission that one night, and I saw you waiting up for me... I was really happy.
  • Oboro: Oh?
  • Asugi: Yeah. It made me realize that I had a real home to come back to. Knowing you're out there, waiting for me, makes me desperate to make it back home. No matter how much danger I'm in or what I have to do to make it back safely... I always will. I will always, always come back home to you.

  • Oboro: ... All right, all right. If you really mean that, I guess I'll stop. I'll just sit at home and wish you luck on your missions.
  • Asugi: Mom... Thank you. You don't know what that means to me.
  • Oboro: I mean, it'll still be hard to sleep. Maybe I'll use the time to fix supper and a few snacks for when you get back.
  • Asugi: That...would be AMAZING!

  • Asugi: WHAA-?! What...? MOM?! What in the name of all that is sweet and holy are you doing here?
  • Charlotte: Oh, don't mind me. I came along to help out.
  • Asugi: Wh-why would you follow me? This place is dangerous!
  • Charlotte: It certainly is! This place is crawling with enemy soldiers. Now imagine what would happen if one of them saw you without any support!
  • Asugi: You shouldn't be here, Mom. This is MY mission, not yours!
  • Charlotte: Oh, you can still have all the credit. I don't care about that. But I want to be around to help in case something happens!
  • Asugi: SHH! Be quiet!
  • Charlotte: Wha-? Why, you little-!
  • Asugi: Not another word! The enemy patrol is heading this way...
  • Charlotte: *grumble*
  • Asugi: *sigh* OK, they're gone. Gods, me heart is racing. I was certain they'd spotted us.
  • Charlotte: Is this how all your missions go?! Good thing I'm along!
  • Asugi: Geez, Mom. I knew parents like to bond with their kids, but this is overkill!
  • Charlotte: When have you ever known me to do anything halfway, my boy?
  • Asugi: Ugh, enough is enough. I can't think straight when you're here. This whole mission is a bust. Let's go.
  • Charlotte: Huh...?
  • Asugi: Come on, Mom. I know a shortcut back. It's time to go home.
  • Charlotte: But...suspicious enemy officers! Secret plans! Ninja stuff! What happened to that?
  • Asugi: It's over. Come on, let's hurry back.
  • Charlotte: If you insist...

A Support Edit

  • Charlotte: Hi, Asugi. What are we infiltrating tonight?
  • Asugi: ...WE are not going anywhere. You're not coming along.
  • Charlotte: What? Why not?! You think you can order me around? I'm YOUR mother! And I say I'm going!
  • Asugi: Mom, you're being unreasonable. Don't you trust me?
  • Charlotte: Absolutely! It's your partner I'm concerned about. The one who DOESN'T EXIST. Who better to look after you than a mother who knows her way around a weapon?
  • Asugi: We each have our own part to play in this war, Mom. I'm a ninja, so I fulfill the roles that my training has prepared me for. When you follow me, it puts us both in very real danger. Instead of focusing on the mission, I can only think of protecting you.
  • Charlotte: Maybe my point isn't getting across.
  • Asugi: ...
  • Charlotte: There are a hundred ways these solo reconnaissance missions can go wrong. I know, because I lie awake at night thinking about them all. How do you expect me to sit on my hands with all that?!
  • Asugi: Mom... Look, this is embarrassing, so I'm only going to say it once.
  • Charlotte: Um-OK...
  • Asugi: When I got back from my mission that one night and I saw you waiting up for me... I was really happy.
  • Charlotte: Awww. How sweet!
  • Asugi: It made me realize that I had a real home to come back to. Knowing you're out there, waiting for me, makes me desperate to make it back home. No matter how much danger I'm in or what I have to do to make it back safely... I always will. I will always, always come back home to you.
  • Charlotte: Asugi...
  • Asugi: That's why I need you to stay here. My home is wherever YOU are. I can't do what I do without knowing that I have a loving home waiting for me. As long as you're here, safe and happy, I'll never lose heart.
  • Charlotte: ...Hmph... You're not leaving me much choice here, are you? Hard to say no to a passionate plea like that...
  • Asugi: Mom... Thank you. You don't know what that means to me.
  • Charlotte: It had better mean a lot! It won't be easy for me, staying behind. But for you. I'll make the sacrifice of letting you go without me into terrible danger. I guess I could pass the time cooking those sweets you love so much.
  • Asugi: That...would be AMAZING!
  • Charlotte: Lots and lots of them, to fatten you up so you can't go on missions anymore! Ugh. No. I didn't mean that. What I meant was, I love you, Asugi.
  • Asugi: Thanks, Mom. I love you too.

With Kana (Male) (Brother) Edit

With Kana (Male) (Son) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Kana: Hey, Papa? There's something I wanted to ask you about, if that's OK...
  • Asugi: Yeah? What do you need, little man?
  • Kana: Well, see, it's Mama. She's always treating me like a child.
  • Asugi: Of course she is. You're her son. It doesn't matter how old you get, she'll always think of you as her child.
  • Kana: I know, I know. I just mean I'm not as much of a child as I used to be. I want to help out more. But whenever I try, she just tells me to go play with my friends instead.
  • Asugi: I see. You want some responsibilities of your own.
  • Kana: Right! I want to be someone she can rely on. Do you have any ideas for things I could do for her?
  • Asugi: Hm... Usually, I just tend to share my candy with her. She's got a bigger sweet tooth than you'd think.
  • Kana: And that makes her happy?
  • Asugi: Oh, sure. You should see how she smiles when I bring her a candy apple.
  • Kana: Oh...
  • Asugi: But I suppose that's not of much use to you, huh? Let me think...
  • Kana: Oh, I know! Let's have a contest, Papa!
  • Asugi: A contest? What kind of contest?
  • Kana: Yeah! We'll have a contest to see which of us can make Mama happier. Between the two of us, I'm sure we can come up with all sorts of things. Whoever gets thanked the most wins!
  • Asugi: A little father-son competition, huh? Sounds fun. All right. I'm in.
  • Kana: Woohoo!
  • Asugi: But let me warn you. I'm the one that won your mother's heart. You're going to have a tough time if you aim to beat me. And I'm not going to go easy on you, you hear?
  • Kana: That's fine with me, Papa. I'm gonna beat you fair and square!
  • Asugi: Heh... Then let the games begin!

B Support Edit

  • Kana: Hey, Papa! I've been making a ton of progress on our contest! How about you?
  • Asugi: Well, I haven't done anything special yet, but I've still gotten a few thanks. Let's see, I've got a tally here... Ah! There it is.
  • Kana: WOW! That's a lot! You got all of these already?
  • Asugi: Yeah, I guess I never noticed just how much I do for her before...I guess I make a pretty good husband after all.
  • Kana: Well...I'm still not gonna lose! Here, see! I recorded all of mine, too. And the total is...um...
  • Asugi: H-hey! What is this?! You've got the same number I do!
  • Kana: I do? I do! haha! Kana's gonna beat you big-time! After all, I don't have to work, so I can spend all day doing things for Mama!
  • Asugi: Ah, so that's your secret. And just what have you been doing with all that time?
  • Kana: Mostly I've been trying to help out around camp. I spend morning make arrows for the fletchers. Then at lunch I cut up vegetables for the cooks and hand out the food. Oh! And at night, I make sure the mounts are all fed and outfitted for the next day. Plus I do a bunch of other little things whenever I have time!
  • Asugi: That's quite a lot of work. And you've bee doing this everyday? Heh. You really have grown up, haven't you?
  • Kana: Huh?
  • Asugi: Just a thought. Perhaps I have been treating you like too much of a child as well. Wasn't that long ago when you were a little babe in swaddling clothes. And now, all of a sudden, you're making real, important contributions to the army.
  • Kana: Heehee. Yeah, I've been working real hard. Soon there'll be nothing I can't do!
  • Asugi: I believe it. And I bet Avatar is very grateful for all the good work you've been doing.
  • Kana: "Good work"... Hm. I just realized...Mama hasn't really been saying "thank you" to be very much. She just tells me "good work" and smiles. It's kind of a sad smile, come to think of it...
  • Asugi: Mm. I wouldn't overthink it. You're doing good work. And more importantly, this means you've been cheating me, you little wart! The contest was to see who could get thanked the most!
  • Kana: Haha! I guess you're right. But I'm still not gonna lose to you, Papa! I won't sleep until Mama thanks me twice as much!
  • Asugi: (Grrr...this might be harder than I'd thought.)

A Support Edit

  • Kana: *grumble*
  • Asugi: Hey there, Kana.
  • Kana: Hi, Papa...
  • Asugi: Something the matter? I would have expected you to be exulting over your little victory the other day. Or has beating your old man in a contest already lost it's novelty?
  • Kana: Oh, no, Papa. I'm still happy about that, I guess. It's just that I was trying to do things for Mama earlier, but she made me stop. She said I should be spending more time playing around with my friends. She still thinks I'm just a kid. Haven't I shown her that I can help out with stuff too? Am I messing up? Is she just pretending I'm doing a good job?
  • Asugi: Oh, is that it? Don't worry, it's not you. You're doing a great job.
  • Kana: Then why doesn't she want me to help with anything?
  • Asugi: I think Avatar knows full well you're capable of taking on responsibilities. But it makes her worry. And it makes her feel lonely.
  • Kana: Huh? Why?
  • Asugi: Well, she doesn't want you to miss out on your childhood. And she doesn't want to lose her baby boy. She's happy to see you're growing up, but she's worried you won't need her anymore.
  • Kana: But...I'm just trying to pull my own weight. I don't get why that would be a bad thing...
  • Asugi: Heh. I'm not sure I do either. But here's a suggestion for you. Keep helping Mama like you have been, but don't work yourself quite as hard. Take breaks to see your friends and play games and all that. And it wouldn't hurt to try and spend some quality time with her now and then. Think you can handle that?
  • Kana: But...
  • Asugi: Hm? Do you not want to spend time with your mother?
  • Kana: No, that's not it! It's just...I feel like that stuff is for babies.
  • Asugi: No, Kana. It's not for babies. It's for children. And she wants you to be a child for just a little while longer. We both do.
  • Kana: Papa...
  • Asugi: Kana, we know you're growing up and that you want to be relied upon. You're going to be a great man someday. Everybody knows it. But for now...just relax. Enjoy yourself. At least a little bit, here and there.
  • Kana: OK... Thanks, Papa. I'll think real hard about everything you've said.
  • Asugi: Good. You know... I think it would be good if you spent some quality time with your mother tonight. Have a relaxing night in, just the two of you.
  • Kana: W-wait! Aren't you gonna stay with us?
  • Asugi: What? Oh, no, I have some honey cakes to se—
  • Kana: But, Papa! Don't you need to take a break sometimes too? I thought you wanted me and Mama to be happy!
  • Asugi: A-all right. Sure. When you put it like that...
  • Kana: Yaaay!
  • Asugi: Heh. So a night in with the family, huh...? You know, I think it won't be half-bad.

With Shigure (Brother) Edit

C Support Edit

  • Asugi: *sigh* Where the heck did Shigure go? It seems unlikely that he would be in the hills or fields, but... he wasn't anywhere around camp.
  • Shigure: *singing*
  • Asugi: Wait, there he is! I wonder what he's doing out here? Why is he sitting on that tree trunk? And who are all those peopl—WHAT?! Those aren't people... They're forest animals! Bears, rabbits... even wolves. And they're all sitting there so quietly.
  • Shigure: I think that's enough for one day. Did you all enjoy it?
  • Asugi: I-it looks like he's trying to talk with them.
  • Shigure: Ah? Who's there?! Oh no! Come back!
  • Asugi: Ack! Wow, they're running really fast. Sorry about that, Shigure.
  • Shigure: You just startled them, Asugi. And you startled me too! But don't worry about it. They can't help being a little shy. So tell me, what are you doing all the way out here?
  • Asugi: I came looking for you, actually. Growing up so far apart prevented us form spending any time together. So I was thinking we could get to know each other. After all, we're brothers.
  • Shigure: Oh, I don't know what to say. I'm really not the most interesting person around... You might have more fun talking with someone more outgoing.
  • Asugi: What? But you're my sibling. Come on, I'll even share my tastiest candy with you. It's so good!
  • Shigure: Please, don't feel obligated to try and be my friend, just because of that. Honestly, I'm not in the most social mood right now. If you'll excuse me...

(Shigure leaves)

  • Asugi: H-hey, come back! Geez, what the heck is up with him?

B Support Edit

  • Asugi: *groan* Shigure's been missing all day. Maybe he went back to that pretty clearing in the hills. I bet all those forest animals are sitting around with him, too... Heheh. Would you look at that, I was right! Hey, Shigure!!
  • Shigure: Asugi?! What are you doing out here? Ah! Oh no! Wait!
  • Asugi: Ohh, I scared them all away again... Sorry about that.
  • Shigure: Don't worry about it. They aren't used to other people being around here. It's easy to startle them.
  • Asugi: Ah, that makes sense. It's amazing how you tamed all these wild animals from the forest. We might have the same parents, but I could never pull that off.
  • Shigure: Why were you looking for me again? Did you need something?
  • Asugi: ...Yeah. Fate made us brothers, but we barely know each other. We should spend some time hanging out.
  • Shigure: Oh, I see... Listen, I'm sorry for being rude the other day. We can talk today if you really want to. I'm your brother, and the last thing I want to do is let you down.
  • Asugi: Really? You mean it? I promise I won't get in your way. Why don't you call back all the animals?
  • Shigure: Honestly, I don't think they'll want to come back while you're here.
  • Asugi: Why not? But they all seemed to love you. If I try hard, maybe I could make friends with them too. Say, is there some secret way to get them to like me?
  • Shigure: Hmm... I'm not sure if this will help, but... Animals are highly attuned to the feelings of people around them. Most likely, they detected something in you that drove them off.
  • Asugi: Something bad? Sure, I might seem deadly in a fight, but not when I'm surrounded by cute animals.
  • Shigure: They can sense what you were thinking. Were you sizing them up to figure out which one might make a tasty dinner? Even just for a moment?
  • Asugi: Don't be ridiculous. All I ever want to do is chow down on sweets.
  • Shigure: Of course, I'm sorry. That's just the biggest reason I could think of for them to run away. I appreciate how sincere you are about befriending them. I'll try to think of what can be done to make them feel safe around you. I'm happy to help out my loyal brother.
  • Asugi: You mean it? I'm counting on you!

A Support Edit

  • Asugi: Hey, Shigure...
  • Shigure: What's wrong, Asugi? You look troubled.
  • Asugi: Well, I've just been thinking about those animals you're friends with...
  • Shigure: Oh? Did you want to go pay them a visit? I was just about to head in that direction if you want to come along. Do you think you're ready to prove that you don't mean them any harm?
  • Asugi: No, I, umm... I've just been thinking more about why they ran away from me. You were right about them detecting something off about me...
  • Shigure: What do you mean? Were you feeling some strong emotion when you arrived?
  • Asugi: It made me a little jealous when I saw you treating them so well. I felt like it was unfair that you wanted to hang out with them but not me. That's why they ran away. They could feel my animosity toward them. I was just being a selfish jerk.
  • Shigure: Asugi, I'm glad you thought about this and talked to me.
  • Asugi: The pont is, I'm not going out there again.
  • Shigure: Don't say that! You should absolutely go back. You've opened up, and the animals will be able to tell you've changed. I think they'll be more welcoming.
  • Asugi: Huh? I'm not sure...
  • Shigure: Well I am. You didn't have to say that you were feeling jealous, but you did anyway. That tells me that you've got a good soul inside of you. They'll be able to see that, too. Look! There's a rabbit coming this way!
  • Asugi: Wh-whoa! Wait, what do I do?
  • Shigure: Just calmd own... Relax, and take a breath. Quiet your mind, and be peaceful... Just think about how you want to be friends with the furry critter.
  • Asugi: Y-yeah, OK. I'll try... Look! He's letting me pet him! The little guy wants me to be his friend!
  • Shigure: See? I told you it would all be fine.
  • Asugi: Yeah. I guess you were right after all!
  • Shigure: Now you can meet all of the other animals! I think you will get along with everyone. Let's wander to the clearing in the woods—I bet your new friends will be waiting there.
  • Asugi: OK! Lead the way, Shigure!

With Dwyer Edit

C Support Edit

  • Asugi: Damn... it...
  • Dwyer: Oh. Looks like I won this round. You all right though, Asugi?
  • Asugi: Y-yeah. I'm fine. Just... winded. And surprised. You're usually so lazy... I wasn't expecting you to be such a good fighter. What gives?
  • Dwyer: I'm better than I look, huh?
  • Asugi: Yeah, you are. But I'm gonna knock that smug look off you next time! C'mon Naps! Time for round two!
  • Dwyer: Nah... I'm good. Too much work.
  • Asugi: Hey! You can't just quit while you're ahead like that!
  • Dwyer: I'm not quitting. I'm just, uh... quitting. Sorry. Too sleepy. Can't think.
  • Asugi: Grrr. Well, what if I offer you one of my special peach cobblers? They're amazing! Practically melt in your mouth.
  • Dwyer: Nah, I can bake my own sweets.
  • Asugi: F-fine! I'll let you off. But on one condition! You've gotta tell me how you got so good! I never see you doing any training. And... to be honest, you don't look that tough.
  • Dwyer: Eh. Yeah. You're right. This was probably just a fluke. Now, I think it's nap time. Later, sweet cheeks.

(Dwyer leaves)

  • Asugi: Urgh! That lazy old bindle-buncher! I've got to know what his secret is! Maybe if I follow him around for a bit, I can find out...

B Support Edit

  • Dwyer: *yawn*
  • Asugi: Perfect. He's just getting back from breakfast. Let's see what he does all day...
  • Dwyer: Aw, man. Breakfast really has me beat. Maybe I'll have myself a little lie-down.

(scene transition)

  • Dwyer: *yawn*
  • Asugi: Back already? He just left for lunch an hour ago.
  • Dwyer: Whoo. All that healing has me pooped. Time for an after-lunch napperino.
  • Asugi: Uggghh...

(scene transition)

  • Dwyer: *yawn*
  • Asugi: C'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon...
  • Dwyer: Well, dinner was nice. And for dessert... Aw, you guessed it, pillow! I love you, too.
  • Asugi: Hey, Naps! What's the deal?!
  • Dwyer: What the—? Asugi?! How long have you been there?
  • Asugi: Since morning!
  • Dwyer: Wh-why? Are you... trying to spy on my sleeping?
  • Asugi: Er— Not... really. I just want to know how you're such a good fighter! But you didn't ever train! You barely even left your bed!
  • Dwyer: Course I didn't train. That's way too much effort. I'm not fool.
  • Asugi: Grrr. And how can you be so tired when you spend the entire day sleeping, anyway?
  • Dwyer: Eh... I dunno. I guess it's just how I feel. Sorry to disappoint.
  • Asugi: But... how...? How are you so good?
  • Dwyer: My old man sort of beat it into me back when I was younger. Guess I just never lost the instinct for it. I worked pretty hard back then. All there is to it, really.
  • Asugi: Well, I'm jealous. Not many people can live so lazily and maintain skills like yours.
  • Dwyer: Yeah. Life is cruel. So anyway, I need to get some shut-eye. Big day tomorrow. Just like today. So if you could just see yourself out...

(Dwyer leaves)

  • Asugi: Damn him... This might have been my worst recon mission yet...

A Support Edit

  • Dwyer: Asugi...
  • Asugi: Yeah, Naps?
  • Dwyer: ... Why are we having a tea party? Thought you wanted a rematch.
  • Asugi: Bingo. And that's exactly what we're doing.
  • Dwyer: I'm pretty sure we're just eating pastries and drinking tea... Is this what the kids call rematches these days? Huh... That's new... Neat.
  • Asugi: Look, I gave up on trying to nab the secret to your fighting abilities. Wasting a whole day watching you sleep was enough. I'm not subjecting myselg to more of that. Which is why I decided to have a different type of competition with you. I call it the... WHOSE-BAKED-SWEETS-ARE-BETTER SHOWDOWN!
  • Dwyer: ...Oh. OK.
  • Asugi: Heh. So now you understand?
  • Dwyer: Yep. I'd say this is your win.
  • Asugi: Huh?
  • Dwyer: I mean, your stuff is way better than mine. Ckeck out these little bean fish things. What did you call them? Taiyaki? They're great. And these rice cakes... oh man. You're pretty amazing an this stuff, Asugi. Where'd you learn it all?
  • Asugi: Feh. I can't tell you that. Maybe if you spied on me, you could find out...
  • Dwyer: Eh... Nah. Too much effort...
  • Asugi: Ngh...
  • Dwyer: And you know... I think this is probably more of a draw anyways.
  • Asugi: Wh-what?! But you said I won! You can't take that back!
  • Dwyer: Well, I didn't just bring sweets. I brewed some coffe as well. I don't know how you tasted it through all that sugar, but you seemed to like it a lot. You kept going on about how good it was. And isn't that your eighth cup?
  • Asugi: Hm... I suppose you've got a point.
  • Dwyer: So, how 'bout it. Do you know how to make coffee? Let's have another rematch.
  • Asugi: D-dammit! Enough! No! I'm not going to spy on you again to get your coffee-brewing secrets!
  • Dwyer: Well... you could anyways play fair. But if you really want to know, you can just ask.
  • Asugi: Really?! Then I'll take you up on that!
  • Dwyer: Yeah, no problem. It's pretty easy to do. Way easier than sparring, anyway. But I have one condition. You gotta teach me how to make that taiyaki stuff.
  • Asugi: I see... All right, Naps. You're on.
  • Dwyer: Sweet. Well, I'm full, so I'm gonna go lie down.
  • Asugi: Huh? So you're not going to teach me now?
  • Dwyer: Well, to quote a wise man, "I would prefer not to".
  • Asugi: You— You— Fine! I'll wait until you wake up! But you're teaching me as soon as you do! All right?
  • Dwyer: Fiiiiine *yawn* *smack smack smack*

With Sophie Edit

C Support Edit

  • Sophie: Oh! Hiya, Asugi!
  • Asugi: Hey there, Fumbles. Impressive work, saving the baggage train like that.
  • Sophie: Thanks! Those bandits sure gave us a run for our money, huh?
  • Asugi: Mhm. Trying to round up the horses afterward was even worse, though. When they get scared like that, there's no stopping them. And one of them even threw off the saddlebag of suckers I'd stashed on it. No discipline in the army these days...
  • Sophie: Yeah, that was awful! I thought I was going to get trampled to death for sure!
  • Asugi: Haha. Trampled to death is a little dramatic, isn't it? With a mount like Avel, you should be used to dodging hooves by now. By jelly, I'd even say he's worse than 10 of those stampeding horses. Anyway, I'm glad things worked out. Plus it was good exercise.
  • Sophie: I-I guess so.
  • Asugi: Huh? Something wrong?
  • Sophie: Oh...it's just...you're always so breezy about things, no matter what. Whenever there's trouble, I always end up running around in a panic. Even now, I'm still pretty shaken up about the whole bandit-raid thing. I guess I'm just jealous. Haha!
  • Asugi: Heh. Gee, thanks, Fumbles. I appreciate it. But there's no need to be jealous. Like I said, YOU ere the one who saved the baggage train. Anyways, I gotta go. Hear there was some sugarcane growing around here...

(Asugi leaves)

  • Sophie: Bye! What a guy... I hope I can be as unshakable as he is someday.

B Support Edit

  • Sophie: Uwaaaaaaaaaah! Nooooooo! How could this happen?
  • Asugi: What was that?! Is my peach cobbler all right?! Wait. What on earth...? Did a bomb go off in this kitchen?
  • Sophie: No... I was just baking something.
  • Asugi: How could you have possibly "baked" a hole into the ceiling?
  • Sophie: I wish I could say... I just wanted to try a special new recipe, and next thing I knew... Boom! Ahaha...ha...ha.
  • Asugi: "Boom," huh? Heh. Oh well. Not much we can do about it now.
  • Sophie: B-but how are we going to clean all this up?! That hole especially is going to take forever to fix...
  • Asugi: Yeah, you're right. But I think we can handle it just fine. I'll be right back. I'm gonna go grab some tools.
  • Sophie: O-OK...

(scene transition)

  • Sophie: Phew. That took so much less time than I thought it would! Thanks, Asugi!
  • Asugi: Eh, it was nothing. I've spent a lot of time working in kitchens and repairing things.
  • Sophie: I had no idea! No wonder you were so calm when you saw that mess!
  • Asugi: Naw, I don't think it was that. I think it was you, actually.
  • Sophie: Huh? I kept you calm? How?
  • Asugi: Well...how can I put this? You know how sometimes little kids go crazy? Like, they run around, and bump into things, and scream, and cry and stuff? And you know that you've gotta be the calm one and take care of things? It was like that!
  • Sophie: Is that really how you see me?
  • Asugi: W-well, er, I mean...you're not a child, but...ah....I'm sorry. I didn't-- I just meant...you do sort of panic a lot.
  • Sophie: Oh... Yeah. I guess you're right... I think I'm gonna go now. Thanks again, Asugi.

(Sophie leaves)

  • Asugi: Aw, Sophes... Criminy, Asugi. What's wrong with you?

A Support Edit

  • Sophie: Hey, Asugi. I wanted to thank you for the other day.
  • Asugi: Oh, Fumbles. Hey. You mean for the kitchen?
  • Sophie: Nope! Something else.
  • Asugi: Oh? Then what?
  • Sophie: Well, in our last skirmish, I was caught alone next to some enemy forces.
  • Asugi: Wait, when was this? I don't think I was there.
  • Sophie: Yeah, I was alone...and I started to panic. I was so scared, I couldn't think straight. But then I remembered what you said about me being like a crazy little kid.
  • Asugi: Ah, look, I feel real awful about that--
  • Sophie: No, hang on. It was a good thing! Because there was no way I was going to let you be right about my being a baby! And I thought about how you always are in combat. Calm. Observant. Collected. And I knew what I had to do. I just had to assess the situation and deal with it. When I looked around again, I realized they were advancing in another direction. So I charged their flank, scattered them, and made off without a scratch!
  • Asugi: Nice work! But, ah, I didn't do a thing. No need to thank me.
  • Sophie: Sure, but the only reason I was able to do what I did was because of you! If you hadn't been such an insensitive jerk, I'd never have been mad enough to focus! So I wanted to thank you. For being you.
  • Asugi: Haha. Well, whatever works. I AM sorry about that, though.
  • Sophie: Water under the bridge! I'm just happy I got to know you.
  • Asugi: Same to you, Fumbles. You're a pretty swell lady. An I'm glad to call you my friend.

  • Asugi: *pant pant* Fumbles! Sophie! Are you OK?!
  • Sophie: Asugi!
  • Asugi: Th-they're...gone now. It's...all right.
  • Sophie: Yeah...I just... I didn't know what to do. They surrounded me... I could have died.
  • Asugi: Hey, it's OK. It's OK. They've been routed. It's done with. Remember the last time this happened? You knocked 'em over like it was nothing. Just charged the whole lot. I bet the same thing would have worked this time.
  • Sophie: But that's the problem! This time wasn't like last time! Last time wasn't as bad. But here...there were so many of them. If you all hadn't pushed through at the last second...I might not be here right now. And last time, I could focus because I was angry and wanted to prove you wrong. What do I do when I don't have that?
  • Asugi: Sophie... I don't know. That's not something anyone can figure out but you. But I'll tell you what. Until you do, we won't let you get cut off alone again. Because I'll be right by your side from now on. OK?
  • Sophie: Asugi...
  • Asugi: I don't know what I'd do if I lost you, Sophes. And I know you've got the strength in you to handle anything. But until you find it...know you can rely on me, OK? I...I, um... Well, it's like this...
  • Sophie: Heehee. Sounds like somebody's in luuurve with me!
  • Asugi: Hey! I'm being serious here! And so what if I am?!
  • Sophie: Aw, I'm only teasing! Thank you, Asugi. It means a lot to me. And...maybe I feel something for you too.
  • Asugi: Just...maybe?
  • Sophie: Well...MAYBE I'm also sort of totally infatuated! But I guess you'd never know...unless you took me out!
  • Asugi: Heh. I reckon I could do that. I know of this bakery, next town over, actually. Best cake you'll ever taste!
  • Sophie: That sounds delightful! Oh, Asugi, I can't wait!
  • Asugi: Me neither, Sophes. Me neither.

With Midori Edit

C Support Edit

  • Midori: Hmph.
  • Asugi: Hm? Something wrong, Doc?
  • Midori: Huh? Oh, not really. This herb here just reminded me of something. Father and Uncle Saizo argued about it once.
  • Asugi: Argued? Over a plant?
  • Midori: Yeah. They couldn't agree on how it was best applied. One said you should boil it and drink the tea. The other said to apply it directly. It started just as shouting, but it turned into a huge fistfight.
  • Asugi: They fought in front of you? Hmph. What children.
  • Midori: Right? I'm glad we're not like that, Asugi.
  • Asugi: Haha. Me too. Means I get free doses of that sugary vitamin tonic you always make.
  • Midori: Hey! I was being serious!
  • Asugi: Hahaha. Don't worry. I'm only kidding.
  • Midori: Hmpf! Too late! I'm not making any more of that stuff for you.
  • Asugi: H-hey now, let's not get any crazy ideas! I'm sorry! Really! I didn't mean it! Please... Just a little bit...
  • Midori: Teehee! Fiiiiiine! You really might want to work that sweet tooth of yours, though. It's not good for you to be eating all that sugar!
  • Asugi: Oh boy, oh boy! Come to papa! *glug glug glug*
  • Midori: You should slow down. I know it's sweet, but it's still some pretty potent medicine... If you drink too much, you're going to get sick.
  • Asugi: Uh-huh, got it! Later!
  • Midori: I've got a bad feeling about this...

B Support Edit

  • Midori: Asugiiiiiiiii!
  • Asugi: Hnnggg...
  • Midori: Are you OK?! I heard you were sick!
  • Asugi: Y-yeah. Just a bit...under the— *blorchhh* Haahhh... Hahhhh... Under the weather...
  • Midori: Ooh. Black vomit. That's not a good sign... Wait! I recognize those chunks! Did you drink too much of my tonic?!
  • Asugi: M-maybe. ...Yeah. Ok. I did— Oh gods, not again—
  • Midori: You big dummy! I told you it'd make you sick.
  • Asugi: Hghloorrrrrf!
  • Midori: Most medicine is poisonous in high amounts, Asugi... You should know this. Shouldn't Saizo have taught you better?
  • Asugi: You'd think...he'd have done...a lot of things...better. *pant* Hnnnnnffff.
  • Midori: Hmm... Hey! I've got an idea! I'm gonna start making you some real sweets!
  • Asugi: Huh? Wh-why?
  • Midori: Because! It's my responsibility to make sure my patient is taken care of.
  • Asugi: What? Not by giving them candy...
  • Midori: Mhm! Because I have to make sure you'll take the right amount of medicine! So I'll just make some candy that tastes the same as the tonic. Then you can gorge yourself on the candy without any side effects!
  • Asugi: I guess that would work, but— Hhhhfjffhbgraaaahbhgh! ...Is that...a piece...of my liver...?
  • Midori: OK! I'll go whip up a batch ASAP!
  • Asugi: Ok... Thanks.

A Support Edit

  • Midori: Hey, Asugi...
  • Asugi: What's with the waterworks, Doc? You don't look so good... Huh? And whats that you got there? Bringing someone some medicine?
  • Midori: No...this is the candy I made for you.
  • Asugi: Wh-why is it black?! Are those fish scales? Er—I mean, it looks...neat! Look at how cute those blue fuzzies growing on it are! And that purple slime! I bet it's grape flavored! Am I right?
  • Midori: It's lemon flavored... I'm sorry, Asugi. I thought making candy would be easy. I mean, it's sort of like making medicine, right? But...not enough, I guess. I ruined your gift. I'm a terrible friend.
  • Asugi: Yeah, candy making isn't for the faint of heart. There's an art to it. You shouldn't underestimate the difficulty of making something just 'cause kids like it.
  • Midori: I know, I know! I tried really hard though, OK?
  • Asugi: Haha. OK, OK. I'm sorry. I won't lecture you about it. But I appreciate the thought. It's very sweet of you. Get it? Sweet? Heh heh heh.
  • Midori: Yeah, yeah, I gotcha, you big dork. You're welcome.
  • Asugi: Now, let's see how these taste! *chomp chomp*
  • Midori: Oh no! Asugi, you don't have to do that!
  • Asugi: *munch munch* Hm... Well, this is certainly unique.
  • Midori: Unique...?
  • Asugi: Yeah. In a good way. It's not bad. And you can taste the love worked into it. If you practice enough, I'm sure you'll be making world-famous candy in no time!
  • Midori: Really? Do you think you could teach me?
  • Asugi: Sure, why not. How about we try another batch tomorrow?
  • Midori: Ok! Thank you so much!

S Support Edit

  • Midori: Asugi! Are we making more candy today?
  • Asugi: Not today, Doc. Today, I've got a gift for you.
  • Midori: Ooh, really? What is it?
  • Asugi: It's called Ring Candy. They say when two people share it, they'll be close forever. And so...I thought it would be nice to share some with you, Midori.
  • Midori: R-really? Are you sure?
  • Asugi: Of course I am. You're my best friend. And I want us to be that way forever. Long as you keep making me that tonic, I mean. Haha.
  • Midori: Asugi...be serious for once.
  • Asugi: I just thought...you're always looking out for me. Making sure I'm not hurt. Whenever I return from a mission, you're there with your apothecary's pack ready. I don't go five minutes after getting cut without you putting a poultice on the thing. It's...nice. And I want you to know that I want to look after you too. I'll always be here to protect you. No matter what.
  • Midori: And I'll always be there to heal you up! Thank you, Asugi.
  • Asugi: Now, eat up! To us, forever!

With Mitama Edit

C Support Edit

  • Asugi: Hey there, Star. I got a question for ya.
  • Mitama: Yes? What is it?
  • Asugi: Rumor has it there's a shrine out there in the woods. It's supposed to house some sort of dangerous magical scroll... You wouldn't happen to know anything about that, would you?
  • Mitama: A magical scroll?
  • Asugi: Yep. I've got orders to obtain said scroll at whatever cost. But magical powers and shrines aren't exactly my forte. Which is why I'm coming to you. So, what's the skinny?
  • Mitama: On what, exactly? Do you want me to tell you how to steal it?
  • Asugi: No, nothing so hard as that. I just thought you could tell me what to look out for. You know, protective charms, traps, ways to avoid getting cursed for all eternity.
  • Mitama: The virtues of youth / Will and courage united / Bound in one spirit.
  • Asugi: Uh... thanks?
  • Mitama: Do not thank me. Innocent, thy heart / Leads thee to a painful death / Thy courage, folly. Asugi... you must understand, some powers are not to be meddled with. The gods are among them. I recommend you stay far away from those ruins.
  • Asugi: Hm? Ruins? I didn't say anything about them being ruins. How did you know that?
  • Mitama: L-lucky guess, I suppose! H-hahaha...ha! I must go now. B-but stay away from those ruins! Bye!

(Mitama leaves)

  • Asugi: ... Does nobody in this army know how to lie without stuttering? Criminy. Oh well. I'm sure it'll be fine. Worse comes to worst, I'll just hightail it out of there.

B Support Edit

  • Asugi: Oh, Star! Perfect timing. I went to that shrine we talked about.
  • Mitama: You actually went?! Stupid ninja man / Trespassing on cursed grounds / Death stalks those ruins.
  • Asugi: What was I supposed to do? I had orders. Doesn't matter anyways. I couldn't get in. Some sort of magical barrier.
  • Mitama: Ohhh! It's one of THOSE. Well, there is nothing to be done, then. The taste of failure / A bitter medicine, but / Fools take no other.
  • Asugi: Stop playing dumb. Just how much do you know about this shrine?
  • Mitama: Not a thing. I s-swear it...
  • Asugi: You're a bad liar, Star. Why else would you be so intent on my giving up? You know something. Now cut the cabbage. Spill the beans.
  • Mitama: F-fine. Have it your way. Two magical barriers are in place at that shrine. The first simply prevents entry. That is the one that stopped you. But piercing the second barrier triggers a trap that incinerates the entrant.
  • Asugi: So that's how it is. Cripes, you weren't kidding about the danger, were you? But I have to ask... How exactly did you come across all this knowledge?
  • Mitama: It was something of a myth among the shrine maidens I grew up with.
  • Asugi: Oh? Where did this myth come from?
  • Mitama: I cannot say... but its authenticity is beyond question.
  • Asugi: I see. Thanks for the information, Star. With this, I think I've got a plan for how to get around those barriers.
  • Mitama: Warnings and portents / Visions of a painful end / Nothing stops the fool.
  • Asugi: Heh. A ninja never abandons his assignment.
  • Mitama: Then there is no changing your mind. In that case, I'm afraid I must attend you.
  • Asugi: I'd appreciate that. But are you sure? Thought you hated going outdoors.
  • Mitama: I do. But I cannot just let you die out of laziness. However tempting that might be. So please, come to me when you wish to go.
  • Asugi: Thanks. I appreciate it.
  • Mitame: The sweetest reward / Is not honey-coated words / But sweetness itself.
  • Asugi: Got it. You come along, and I'll give you as much candy as you like. Deal?
  • Mitama: Heehee. Very good. Perhaps this will not be such a pointless venture after all.

A Support Edit

  • Asugi: Thanks for coming along to the shrine with me, Star. I gotta say, not being turned into a pile of ash by that second barrier made my day.
  • Mitama: You're quite welcome! now, about my payment...
  • Asugi: Yep, no problem. You'll get all the sweets you can eat for a week. Just need to deliver the goods, and we'll head straight back to my candy vault. But I've got to admit... I'm surprised this little thing is so powerful. I don't feel anything coming from it. It just seems like a bunch of paper.
  • Mitama: Of course it does. That's all it is anymore.
  • Asugi: Wh-what? You mean it lost its power? How can you tell?
  • Mitama: No more dissembling ! I can't continue the lie / You must know the truth. I was the one who made that scroll.
  • Asugi: What?
  • Mitama: I was young and had begun to experiment with the creation of magical scrolls. This was the product of one such experiment... I did not foresee its power. My father was summoned, and immediately he saw its danger. So he had me seal it in those ruins.
  • Asugi: And why didn't you say anything?
  • Mitama: I did not know how people would react, knowing I created a thing of such power. They might decide to press me, with the best of intentions, to create another scroll. But such things are far too dangerous for anyone to wield. Besides. I only managed to make this one by accident. I could not do it again.
  • Asugi: I see. So then, did you dispel its power? Is that why it's inert?
  • Mitama: No. That is beyond me. It seems the curse merely waned with the passage of time. Now it is nothing more than a scrap of paper.
  • Asugi: Hm...
  • Mitama: I must say I was surprised with your stubbornness. Despite repeated warnings that you migh die or unlock a great evil, you persisted. I do not know whether that is a sign of idiocy or bravery. But... I think it is worth admiring, so far as such things go.
  • Asugi: I had orders. That's all.
  • Mitama: Heehee. But you could have pushed back upon discovering new information, no? Do not deny it. You try to hide, but I see you. You are good, daring, and stubborn.
  • Asugi: W-well, anyways, I suppose if this thing's useless, I should return it to you, right? Here. It's yours.
  • Mitama: Thank you. I will make sure it is disposed of properly. Time returns all things / To their home—men to the soil / Scroll to Mitama

  • Asugi: Thanks for inviting me out here tonight, Mitama. Just look at all those stars! It's like there are hundreds of you looking down of us.
  • Mitama: Quiet, and be still / Among the silence, listen / To my heart's soft tones.
  • Asugi: Um, What?
  • Mitama: I... invited you out here to tell you something, Asugi. Feelings flow anew / Snows melt in the warming spring / Wellspring of passions.
  • Asugi: Pardon?
  • Mitama: When I saw your devotion to your mission, I realized that there is another side to you. You are not just a silly, sarcastic boy with an unnatural obsession with sweets. There is a deep seriousness about you, I sense. And I... admire you for it. Deep within my heart / Flowing springs too wide for words / Pure admiration.
  • Asugi: Er, do you mean—
  • Mitama: Yes, Asugi... how do you feel about me? For my part, I must admit... my hearts beats for you.
  • Asugi: I-I never expected this from you. But... I want to be with you too, Mitama.
  • Mitama: You do? Truly?
  • Asugi: I do. You're skilled, adorable, and wise beyond your years. And you've got a playful, sarcastic side. I like that in a girl. So... does this mean we're a couple now?
  • Mitama: Oh, Asugi! Yes, of course! I'm so happy you feel the same!
  • Asugi: I've actually felt this way for a while now... I just didn't know how to approach you. I guess you could say I've been SWEET on you for some time. Heh. Heh heh.
  • Mitama: Oh dear. Puns, the lowest art / Flowing from my lover's lips / My heart sinks like stone. What have I gotten myself into?

  • Asugi: Something wrong? You know if you keep making faces, it'll freeze like that.
  • Caeldori: Y-you ne'er-do-well! I'm only making this face because of you! Those... rags... do not come anywhere near meeting the army dress code.
  • Asugi: Huh? Something wrong with my clothes? Hm... you know, I never noticed, but you're right. They could stand some patching.
  • Caeldori: And they're filthy! How do you even manage to attract that much grime?
  • Asugi: Oh, you know. Baking is dirty work.
  • Caeldori: I am highly skeptical that is a necessary part of the process.
  • Asugi: What does it matter if my clothes get a little dirty? I spend most of my recon missions in the mud and the leaves anyways. No point in fancying myself up all the time. I'm not some dandy parade soldier.
  • Caeldori: This is an army. Accordingly, we have regulations. Regulations that must be met. Now, off with these clothes. They need to be mended and washed immediately.
  • Asugi: Can't it wait?
  • Caeldori: Do you want me to write you up for insubordination?
  • Asugi: Yeah, yeah. Criminy, lady, you'd think I was thieving, not wearing some dirty clothes.

  • Asugi: Oh, heya, Caeldori. I was just making something sweet. Want some?

  • Asugi: Don't get yourself all worked up. I'll clean it up in a few.
  • Caeldori: Oh, really?
  • Asugi: Hey! What's with the stink eye? I told you I was gonna clean it up.
  • Caeldori: And how am I supposed to trust you this time? Last time you baked, we had to have a crew of eight clean up after you. Nobody in the army could eat until it was done. Two hours later.
  • Asugi: C'mon, can't you just let this slide? There's a marshmallow treat in it for ya.
  • Caeldori: You're not talking your way out of this. March, soldier.
  • Asugi: C'mon. I think you're just grumpy 'cause you've got low blood sugar. Here, just have a bite.
  • Caeldori: No.
  • Asugi: Hey, I'm walking with you, see? Taking a little nibble isn't going to slow us down.
  • Caeldori: ...Very well. If it will get you to shut that sticky little trap of yours. *chomp* Wh-what is this?! What have you put in this? Its... it's... It's delicious! I've never head anything like it!
  • Asugi: It's a special recipe I've been developing. And there's more where that came from. All you gotta do is turn a blind eye. Just this once. Please?

  • Asugi: Yes, ma'am. Thank you, ma'am.

  • Asugi: I'm flattered. So! This mean I have free rein?
  • Caeldori: No. We can't afford to pull so many people off their work just to clean up after you. But... I've decided I can help you while you do your baking.
  • Asugi: Help me? How? Do you know how to cook?
  • Caeldori: I will clean up beside you while you make your confections. It's much less of a hassle than cleaning up after everything's dried and congealed.
  • Asugi: Hm. I suppose that makes sense. Are you sure?
  • Caeldori: Yes. Next time you wish to bake anything, report to me, and I'll help if I can, OK?
  • Asugi: You don't have to—
  • Caeldori: I'll take that as a yes. Now you can make all the sweets you want! Perhaps you would be willing to sell some to me once they have been made? But for now, I must attend to some other business.
  • Asugi: Wait.
  • Caeldori: Yes?
  • Asugi: Thank you.
  • Caeldori: You're very welcome. Is that all?
  • Asugi: No. I'm very grateful, but I can't let you do all that for me. I'll turn over a new leaf. I promise. I'll do my own cleaning from here on out.
  • Caeldori: Oh? Really? Very well, then. I'll leave it to you. Thank you, Asugi.
  • Asugi: Yep. No problem. It's only right. But, uh, maybe you could still give me a hand every now and then? I'd appreciate the company.
  • Caeldori: Yes, of course. You may call on me anytime.
  • Asugi: Thanks. But I don't expect you to do this pro bono. I can pay you.
  • Caeldori: I don't require payment, Asugi. In fact, I'd be insulted if you—
  • Asugi: No, I don't mean money. I mean sweets. I'll make you as many as you'd like. Deal?
  • Asugi: Yes, of course! C-could we start right now?!

  • Asugi: No, that's not it. Just, please, listen.
  • Caeldori: Huh? Then what is it?
  • Asugi: I... ah... I was wondering if you'd want to do more things together.

  • Caeldori: That isn't funny, Asugi.
  • Asugi: I mean it! I swear!
  • Caeldori: You? Want to be with me? Not buying it. What's your angle? Are you trying to get out of latrine duty? I told you, Asugi, everybody has to pull—

  • Caeldori: You really are serious, aren't you?
  • Asugi: Criminy, but you are a slow one. Yes! I'm serious! I fancy you.
  • Caeldori: I see... Teehee. You know, you're pretty cute when you're flustered. I like you too, silly. Why do you think I've been trying to get you to bake so much? Your sweets are good, but they're not THAT good.
  • Asugi: Hahaha, is that right? You're craftier than I thought.
  • Caeldori: Thank you. Now, on to business. If we're to be together, you're to look presentable. That means no more wearing clothes that look like a bunch of used wolfskin toys. You'll also need to stop keeping unwrapped food in your pockets. It's unsanitary. And what is that cat thing in your belt? Is that a sucker? A toy? A charm? Hm... now, what to do about your hair...

  • Asugi: Yeah! A thief! He was trying to get into our war chest!
  • Shiro: And you're chasing him? Let me come with you!
  • Asugi: No, you'll just get in the way!
  • Shiro: Oh yeah? Then I'm definitely coming!
  • Asugi: Whatever! Enough talk! We've got a thief to catch.
  • Shiro: *pant pant* Damn it all! He got away.
  • Asugi: *pant pant* Mother of all criven-hopping blister-arse-
  • Shiro: Asugi, what the hell was all that about?! I would have gotten him if you just quit trying to push me off the road!
  • Asugi: I had to. It was too narrow for me to just pass you. You'd never have caught him. I think all that ham in your skull weighs you down.
  • Shiro: What, so now you're saying it was MY fault?!
  • Asugi: Yes! That is exactly what I'm saying!
  • Shiro: How dare you?!
  • Asugi: How dare YOU say it was ME?!
  • Shiro: Look, you little- You know what? No. Not going to do this.
  • Asugi: If you've got something to say, then say it! What is it, huh?! Mad you didn't get your way? Well, I'm not your damn retainer! So don't expect me to just scrape and bow, you royal sack of shallots!
  • Shiro: Don't worry, I don't. And I wasn't going to say anything like that anyway.
  • Asugi: Well, then what WERE you going to say?
  • Shiro: Forget it. There's no point arguing over what happened here. I'm going back to camp to give my report. I'll see you later.

  • Asugi: You're still on about that? I thought we already settled it. No point in arguing over who was right.
  • Shiro: Yeah, I know. Which is why that's NOT what I came here to talk about.
  • Asugi: Oh? Then please, enlighten me.
  • Shiro: I don't want to argue over who messed up. I want to figure out how we can do better. So if something like this happens again, we'll be able to handle it.
  • Asugi: Ah, I see. Yeah, I think that's good. Don't torture ourselves over it. Just learn from it.
  • Shiro: So, you said that I should have just let you pass. Did you have any other suggestions?
  • Asugi: Well, see. I thought about it more, and there's actually a better solution. One of us should have continued to chase him while the other tried to cut him off.
  • Shiro: Ah, I see. The thief would have been heading to the nearest exit. And if you know where he's headed, you can ambush him before he gets there.
  • Asugi: Yeah, exactly.
  • Shiro: Then next time anything like this happens, let's do that. I'll admit, you were right about being the faster one, so you should do the chasing. And while you do that, I'll try to head them off at the exit. Sound good?
  • Asugi: Yeah, perfect. Stick to the plan, and we'll bag ourselves the next thief for sure. You know, you might have some brains knocking around up there after all. I'm impressed.
  • Shiro: Heh. I'll pretend that that's a compliment. Just remember the plan. I'll be counting on you, ya hear?
  • Asugi: Right back at you.

A Support Edit

  • Shiro: Asugi!
  • Asugi: Hey there. What's going on?!
  • Shiro: We've discovered an enemy spy in our camp!
  • Asugi: What?! And where is he now?!
  • Shiro: We think he's hiding somewhere among the tents on the eastern edge of camp. He's probably going to try to make a run for the forest!
  • Asugi: I see. Well, this isn't quite the situation we'd imagined, but—
  • Shiro: Way ahead of you. We're gonna have o put our little plan to the test. You smoke him out. I'll surprise him at the gate. All right?
  • Asugi: Sounds good to me. Let's go!

(scene transition)

  • Asugi: *pant* *pant* Stop right there, you dastard!
  • Ruffian: D-damn it! Just a little bit farther, and I'll be home free...
  • Shiro: HRRRRRAAAAGH!!!
  • Ruffian: What?! Where did you come from? Well, wherever you were hiding. I'm gonna gut you real good, all the same!
  • Shiro: Think so, huh? Well, take this, scum!
  • Ruffian: Aaaaagh!
  • Shiro: Yield. You cannot win with a wound like that.
  • Ruffian: F-fine... I surrender.
  • Shiro: Good, Asugi! We got him!
  • Asugi: *pant pant* I'm... right here. Good to see... you got him.
  • Shiro: Well done, Asugi. Your plan worked without a hitch.
  • Asugi: Heh. I couldn't have done it without you.
  • Shiro: You know, we make a pretty good team.
  • Asugi: Yeah, we do. Maybe I should start swearing the retainer's oath now, eh? How about it, Shiro?
  • Shiro: Heh. Don't go saying things you don't mean, Asugi.
  • Asugi: Haha. You got me.
  • Shiro: Besides, that might be the right fit for our fathers, but I don't think it is for us. We work better as partners. Not as lord and servant.
  • Asugi: Whatever you think is best. I suppose it wouldn't kill me to accept you as my equal.
  • Shiro: Haha. Yeah, yeah.
  • Asugi: Now, let's haul this guy back. Can't very well just leave him here like this. I don't have any strength left, though. Think you can carry him? Eh? Partner?
  • Shiro: Oh, so THAT'S how this is gonna be, huh? Heh. Fine. Next time, though, YOU get to drag the prisoner back.
  • Ruffian: I... I can't feel... my legs...

With Selkie Edit

C Support Edit

  • Selkie: This is soooooo exciting!
  • Asugi: Selkie?! What are you doing here? Keep your voice down!
  • Selkie: Oh, sorry! I'll be quiet. EEEEEE! He's ducking into that abandoned cottage! Soooooo exciting!
  • Asugi: Shh! He's gonna hear us! And you never answered me... What are you doing here?
  • Selkie: Well, you're following that guy, right?
  • Asugi: Yes. I've been instructed to keep an eye on him. Some people thing he may be a spy.
  • Selkie: So...I'm just helping you! It seemed like a fun chase game.
  • Asugi: But this isn't a game, Selkie. It's a dangerous mission!
  • Selkie: Well, that's why I'm here to help, silly.
  • Asugi: You don't understand. I'm a trained ninja. This is what I do. I don't need any help! It's more likely that you'll just blow my cover.
  • Selkie: Oh, please. You know I'm a kitsune, right? Or did you not notice my fluffy tail? Anyway, I'm probably the best hunter you've ever met. I can be soooooo stealthy!
  • Asugi: Well, first of all, we're not tracking an animal here. We're tracking a man. Secondly, I'm sure you could be quite stealthy... if you could stop talking for five whole seconds!
  • Selkie: I can be quiet. Just watch. ... See!
  • Asugi: Ugh, fine! Keep that up, and I guess you can tag along.
  • Selkie: Yay!

B Support Edit

  • Asugi: Ugh...
  • Selkie: What's wrong, Asugi?
  • Asugi: What do you think? We screwed up.
  • Selkie: You mean because we lost sight of that guy? So what! We'll get him next time!
  • Asugi: Yeah, about that. I don't want you coming with me anymore.
  • Selkie: Aww! Why not?
  • Asugi: Because I work better alone.
  • Selkie: But it wasn't my fault that he got away. I was off chasing a rabbit, remember?
  • Asugi: That may be true, but you distracted me. And your incessant LOUD chatter has got to stop.
  • Selkie: Fine! Whatever. I don't care. I won't help you anymore.
  • Asugi: Excellent. That's just what I wanted to hear. It's for your own good, you know? Spying isn't a game-it's dangerous!
  • Selkie: Says you. 

(Selkie exits)

  • Asugi: Well, that was unpleasant... Had to be done, though. Now, to pick up where I left off... 

(Asugi exits, Selkie re-enters)

  • Selkie: Ha! I can't believe he fell for that. Like I'd give up that easily. I'll show him just how talented I am...

A Support Edit

  • Selkie: Haha! Well, Asugi? What do you have to say NOW? Am I or am I not the bestest hunter you've ever met?
  • Asugi: Well...you did find the target's secret hideout after I lost track of him... But I'm not exactly sure how...
  • Selkie: Hah! That's for me to know. I told you I'm a great tracker.
  • Asugi: I just don't get it. You weren't even paying attention... How'd you know where to go?
  • Selkie: OK, I'll tell you. Remember when I stepped on that branch and made a loud noise?
  • Asugi: I certainly do. I can't believe you gave away our position like that.
  • Selkie: Well, dum-dum, I did it on purpose! Once he thought he'd shaken us, he let down his guard. Then I was able to sneak off separately and follow him. It was great teamwork...even if you didn't know we were working together.
  • Asugi: I see. I've heard of that tactic before. But I've never heard of it actually working...
  • Selkie: So, what do you think about letting me tag along on your missions now? You see how helpful I can be, right?
  • Asugi: I can't deny your talent... But you really must do something about the chatter!
  • Selkie: Yay! I'll take that as a yes. You won't regret this, Asugi!
  • Asugi: We'll see about that...

S Support Edit

  • Selkie: Hey, Asugi! Got another mission lined up for us?
  • Asugi: Oh, Selkie...it's you.
  • Selkie: Of course it's me! So, where are we headed this time?
  • Asugi: Sorry...I think you should sit this one out.
  • Selkie: Are you serious? But you said I could come along! Remember how good I am?
  • Asugi: That's true...but this mission is pretty dangerous.
  • Selkie: That's exactly why you need my help. So, what gives?
  • Asugi: I...I don't want to see you hurt. I care about you.
  • Selkie: Now what are you talking about? Is this some kind of test?
  • Asugi: No! I really care about you, Selkie.
  • Selkie: Oh, is that all?
  • Asugi: Is that all?! How can you say that? I'm spilling my guts here-confessing my love!
  • Selkie: I just didn't know you felt the same way, silly. Isn't it obvious I've been flirting with you this whole time?
  • Asugi: R-really?
  • Selkie: Jeez, for a ninja, you're pretty clueless sometimes. Either that or I forgot how to flirt. Ha! Anyway, I don't want to see you go off on a dangerous mission alone either.
  • Asugi: Well... Thank you, Selkie. I'm sorry for being so oblivious.
  • Selkie: That's OK. So, now that we both officially like each other, can we be a couple?
  • Asugi: Er...yes. I think that's how this kind of thing works... But does it have to be so awkward? Maybe we should start over.
  • Selkie: OK, how's this? Hey, Asugi? Want to go on an incredibly dangerous scouting mission with me? Oh, and then kiss afterward? Heehee!
  • Asugi: That's not helping with the awkwardness, Selkie...

With Hisame Edit

C Support Edit

  • Hisame: Asugi! A word.
  • Asugi: Well, if it isn't Gramps. What's on your mind, old-timer?
  • Hisame: G-Gramps?! I'm younger than you are, you wastrel! Bah. Never mind. Why have you not been attending the Tactics Brunch?
  • Asugi: Huh? Oh, that thing? It's not mandatory, right? Figured it wasn't worth going. I'm no officer. I carry out orders, not give them.
  • Hisame: Don't be a fool. Tactical understanding is vital to every soldier's training. And if you don't discuss battle plans with others, you'll never hone your thinking. Also we serve éclairs. You are fond of such treats, yes?
  • Asugi: R-really?! Nobody told me that...
  • Hisame: So. Do you have any reason for absenting yourself?
  • Asugi: Not really, no. Just figured I had nothing to contribute. We've got enough talented tacticians. Too many cooks'll spoil the cake.
  • Hisame: I disagree. If you were to participate, I believe we would all benefit greatly. New, perspectives are always valuable. Particularly from highly skilled parties. However, if you do decide to come, I implore you to take it seriously. This devil-may-care attitude of yours will not do.
  • Asugi: Aw, I'm highly skilled? Thanks! I appreciate the compliment. I guess I'll think about it. Later!

(Asugi leaves)

  • Hisame: Tsk. That man could use a few lessons in etiquette.

B Support Edit

  • Hoshidan: But in this situation we would be forced to retreat back over the river. We'd be slaughtered where we stood!
  • Hisame: Not quite. If we can get around them from here, we may yet win the day.
  • Asugi: ...
  • Hoshidan: I see. But it seems risky. Do we have any other options? Anyone?
  • Asugi: Hm.
  • Hisame: Asugi? M-my apologies! Excuse me for a moment.

(scene transition)

  • Hisame: Asugi!
  • Asugi: I forget something, Gramps? Weren't you in the middle of talking to someone?
  • Hisame: Why did you leave right in the middle of a discussion?
  • Asugi: Oh. That's what you ran all the way out here for? I just remembered that mu cinnamon rolls should be about done!
  • Hisame: Huh?
  • Asugi: I put some in the oven right before the meeting. Don't want 'em to burn, right? Oh man, I can't wait for that frosting. Stuff melts in your mouth!
  • Hisame: Y-you left for THAT?! How ridiculous...
  • Asugi: Haha. Don't have a stroke, Gramps. Much as I'd like to believe otherwise, I'm sure everyone will be all right without me. Now, I gotta go. Those cinnamon rolls ain't gonna eat themselves.

(Asugi leaves)

  • Hisame: Hey! Stop! I'm not done with you!

(Scene transition)

  • Hisame: Where did that dastard run off to? He wasn't even in the kitchen... ... I-is that Asugi? In the library? What is he reading...? "The Subjugation of the People of the Upper Southlands: A Tactical Overview" What a mouthful. So, then... is he studying warfare all by himself? But... why?

A Support Edit

  • Hisame: Asugi! I must speak to you about something. Regarding your attendance—or, rather, lack thereof—at the Tactics Brunch.
  • Asugi: Gramps! Lemme guess. You saw me ducking out to the library, right? Took you long enough. I thought you'd never catch on.
  • Hisame: So you know why I'm here, then. Well? What do you have to say?
  • Asugi: Yes. I've been studying up on the finer points of tactics and strategy. And no, I have no intention of attending more of those brunches. Tasty as those cream-filled éclairs may be.
  • Hisame: But why? You could get far more out of these studies if you came.
  • Asugi: Just a rule of thumb.
  • Hisame: What kind of rule, exactly?
  • Asugi: Ninja work best alone or in small groups. There's a reason for that. The more conspicuous they are, the less suited they'll be to their assignments. Assassination, intelligence gathering... that stuff requires anonymity, stealth. Can't go flashing our mugs around everywhere, you know?
  • Hisame: I see your point. However, you are not exactly an unknown element of the army.
  • Asugi: Sure. Those who serve the royals directly rarely escape notice entirely. But there's something else to consider. A ninja walks with death. The earliest part of our training conditions us to accept this fat. And as such, we take paints to ensure that when it comes... nothing is disturbed.
  • Hisame: What? And how is this related to our meetings?
  • Asugi: One of the precautions we take is to avoid forming too many personal bonds. Meeting with so many people every week will, obviously, make that difficult. Don't be upset. It's a part of our code. Has been for generations.
  • Hisame: Oh. I'm not upset. I understand very well. You are a fool.
  • Asugi: Oh? How's that?
  • Hisame: That outlook may be appropriate for a truly clandestine asset. But you fight on the battlefield with us, do you not?
  • Asugi: And?
  • Hisame: Have you never wondered why warriors do not follow a similar code? It is because camaraderie is an extremely important part of any military unit.
  • Asugi: So what's your point?
  • Hisame: Think for 10 seconds. When we fight, we often do so side by side, correct? And when we do, our effectiveness in battle increases. This is not an accident. It is a direct consequence of our mutual bond. So too with the others. If you learn nothing else of tactics, learn this: no warrior is an island. We fight and die, not just for a cause, but for each other. Never forget that.
  • Asugi: Hmph... Maybe you're right. Heh. You're not as aloof as you look, are you, Gramps?
  • Hisame: And you are not as shiftless as you appear, either. Perhaps we have learned something here about judging others' appearances.
  • Asugi: Don't be ridiculous. But... I willy try to be a more integrated part of the army from now on. Sorry for the grandstanding. I hadn't considered the situation carefully, I guess.
  • Hisame: No need to apologize. Your willingness to sacrifice yourself is admirable. Under normal circumstances, it would not be misguided. Even so... I must admit my wish to dissuade you was not entirely impersonal. I want you to know that I am always here for you... my friend.
  • Asugi: I know. And I'll always have your back as well, Hisame.

With Rhajat Edit

C Support Edit

  • Asugi: Hey there, Sunshine. Had a question for you.
  • Rhajat: Call me Sunshine again, and I will pull your brains out through your eyes. Slowly. Now, what do you want? I'm busy. Stalking someone is hard work.
  • Asugi: Well, that's sort of what I wanted to talk to you about. I heard that you're a master at tailing people.
  • Rhajat: And?
  • Asugi: And I'm a ninja. A lot of the work I take on includes spying. Which means following people around and not being caught. THAT I can do. What I can't do is keep it up for days or weeks at a time, like you. So, tell me. What's your secret?
  • Rhajat: I do not have a secret. I suppose my skills arose naturally, having studied my target for months in advance. Heeheehee.
  • Asugi: Months?! I couldn't wait that long, even if my missions allowed it. That's some willpower you've got there.
  • Rhajat: No, it's not that. I wouldn't be able to do it were target not extremely special. Very few people are worth this kind of dedication.
  • Asugi: Ah. So you can only spy on people you've got that whole creepy crush thing on. Not a whole lot of ways I can use that in my line of work, I guess. Oh well. Thanks.
  • Rhajat: Cr-creepy crush thing...? I'll show you who's creepy, you—
  • Asugi: Now, if you'll excuse me. I've got a date with a stack of snickerdoodles. See ya!

(Asugi leaves)

  • Rhajat: C-curses. He's gone. Now where was I? Oh, yes, the nail clippings...

B Support Edit

  • Rhajat: Asugi, do you recall how you asked me about how to... ah... follow people? Well, I thought of something that might help you out.
  • Asugi: Really? That'd be swell. So then, what's your secret?
  • Rhajat: It's more of a curse than a secret. You understand.
  • Asugi: A curse? Well, can't hurt to hear it. What've you got for me?
  • Rhajat: It's a curse which renders your target unable to detect you.
  • Asugi: N-no way! Could that really be possible? You've got to teach me, Rhajat!
  • Rhajat: Heh. I suppose I can do that. But there's something I should mention first. The caster must have a special connection to the target for the curse to succeed.
  • Asugi: A special connection?
  • Rhajat: Yes. A friendship would do, or perhaps being siblings. Or... other connections. So long as you are close, it should work.
  • Asugi: I have to make friends with them?! How am I supposed to do that when I'm spying?
  • Rhajat: Ah. Yes. That is a fair point. Drat.
  • Asugi: Hey, don't get frustrated. It was nice of you to share. Although it IS kind of a bizarrely specific curse. You must be the only lady on the planet to use it.
  • Rhajat: What is that supposed to mean...? Are you calling me creepy again? I'm afraid I cannot let such a comment go... unpunished.
  • Asugi: N-no! I didn't mean it like that!
  • Rhajat: Oh? Hehehe. Very well, I will let you off the hook. This time. But I WILL still need to teach you a lesson. Just... watch your back. Hee. Heeheehee... heeheeheehee!

(Rhajat leaves)

  • Asugi: Criminy. I need a cinnamon roll...

A Support Edit

  • Asugi: Hey, wait a minute! Who's there?!
  • Rhajat: Heeheehee. So you finally noticed.
  • Asugi: How long have you been following me?
  • Rhajat: Hmmm. Well, let's see... I started before you returned to your tent... And your little snooze on the riverbank... And when you bought those new tools... And definitely before breakfast. You ate four sweet rolls, a bonbon, 12 cookies and... a grilled fish? That can't be right. Is that right? Anyways, I've been watching you since before that.
  • Asugi: Th-that whole time?!
  • Rhajat: Yep. And you didn't notice even until now. How shameful. Especially for a ninja. Just think. If I were an enemy, you could have died a hundred times by now.
  • Asugi: There's no way! Nobody's ever gotten the drop on me before... unless... Did you—
  • Rhajat: Indeed I did. How does it feel to have been cursed? Is it tingly? Does it sting? My magic can dull even the keenest of senses. This was child's play. So! Have you learned to watch what you say around me?
  • Asugi: Y-yeah, I guess. But crickets. I didn't think your curse would be that effective. Are you sure there's no way I could find a way to use this sort of thing?
  • Rhajat: Not unless you were spying on old friends or lovers. Or perhaps targets of a secret monomaniacal obsession. But even in that case, the target must have some fellow feeling for the caster.
  • Asugi: Yeah, I don't exactly have any enemies I'm mono... er... obsessed with. Wait, so does the fact that the curse worked mean that we're... ah... close?
  • Rhajat: I... I suppose so. I guess this mean we are... friends?
  • Asugi: Heh. Sure. And I'm honored to have a friend as bone-chillingly creepy as you.
  • Rhajat: Well, you don't have to be such a pig about it.
  • Asugi: Hey, I was just joking! I'm sorry. I joke when I'm embarrassed. I just thought it was cute, about that curse. Means you're not as cold as I thought. It's OK. I think you're pretty great too. Heh.
  • Rhajat: Don't go getting a swollen head about it. Unless you want me to make your head literally swell. Because I can arrange that.
  • Asugi: Haha. Fine. And I'm sorry for calling you creepy. That was wrong of me. Pals?
  • Rhajat: Very well. If you insist. ...Heeheehee.

S Support Edit

  • Rhajat: Asuuuuuuugiiiiiii!
  • Asugi: Hng?! That sounds like Rhajat! Don't tell me... Hey! Have you been following me around all day again?
  • Rhajat: Oh, something like that. But I swear, it's for your safety. If I weren't here, an enemy might have snuck up on you. I just wanted to look out for my dear friend Asugi.
  • Asugi: Yeah, I'm not super convinced. What's the real reason you're here?
  • Rhajat: I made some adjustments to that curse I was telling you about. The one that prevents your target from noticing you.
  • Asugi: Oh. Is that all? OK. What kind of improvements we talking about?
  • Rhajat: Well, the last curse required a semireciprocal bond between two people. Of course, that's not much use for reconnaissance work. So I thought the problem might be solved if the caster could just think of the target.
  • Asugi: You mean you've gotten it to work like that? That's incredible.
  • Rhajat: Yes. I have successfully managed to cast it. But...it appears that the caster must still have strong feelings toward the target...
  • Asugi: Strong how? Like, murderous feelings? Hateful feelings?
  • Rhajat: No...like...feelings of love.
  • Asugi: Love?
  • Rhajat: Yes.
  • Rhajat: ...
  • Asugi: Agh! It's even more useless than before!
  • Rhajat: O-oh.
  • Asugi: I mean, how am I supposed to fall in love with a person I don't even know? And that aside, I spend most of my time tailing other men... I mean, I'm open minded and all, but--
  • Rhajat: I am sorry to have wasted your time. I will take my leave now.
  • Asugi: H-hey! Hang on a minute.
  • Rhajat: Yes?
  • Asugi: ...Did you use that curse on me?
  • Rhajat: Wh-what kind of ridiculous, absurd, stupid question is that?
  • Asugi: Well, you have to have tried it on someone; otherwise you wouldn't know it worked. And you said you were following me around, but I still didn't notice you... so it stands to reason I'm the one you tested it on. Am I right? I'm right, aren't I?
  • Rhajat: Bye You Cretaten
  • Asugi: Oh? Haha. I'm sorry. I guess for some reason I thought you might... Bah. Never mind.
  • Rhajat: You thought...
  • Asugi: Ah, well...I think I love you. So it would have been nice if you had cursed me.
  • Rhajat: I see...
  • Asugi: ANYWAYS. Sorry to dump all that on ya. I'd better go now.
  • Rhajat: ...Wait.
  • Asugi: Criminy. Should I start saying my prayers?
  • Rhajat: No...you were right. I did test the curse on you. And it worked. So I guess that's that.
  • Asugi: Heh. I see.
  • Rhajat: What do we do now?
  • Asugi: I don't know. I just know I'm really very happy to hear you say that. Maybe now that we're together...
  • Rhajat: Watch it, ninja. I didn't say we were together just yet.
  • Asugi: Heh. All right, all right. But...well, I don't know. We can do whatever we want. If you want to, you can even keep casting that curse on me and following me around. Whatever it takes to make you happy. That's all I want. For us to be happy.
  • Rhajat: Hm...perhaps I could get used to this whole "relationship" phenomenon...

C Support Edit

  • Soleil: Hmmm...
  • Asugi: You want something, Soleil?
  • Soleil: *sniff* *sniff* Is that candy I smell? You're hiding some in your pouch, aren't you? Now I see why all the girls in camp go gaga over you.
  • Asugi: What's with that sour look? Are you after my sweets too? I don't mind sharing. I just made a fresh batch of hard candy, in fact.
  • Soleil: Whoa! Thanks a ton! I LOVE jawbreakers! Hang on... Oh no you don't! You're not getting off that easy! We're going to have it out, right here, until you admit it... You've been plying all the girls in the army with your irresistible sweets, huh?!
  • Asugi: Huh?! That's crazy talk!
  • Soleil: Oh yeah? Then explain why all I hear from my girlfriends is "Asugi" this and "Asugi" that! They can't get enough of your chocolates and suckers—they say they're "divine." You've got them hooked on your candy!
  • Asugi: I didn't know they were that into it. I'm honored.
  • Soleil: You pig...
  • Asugi: Huh?
  • Soleil: All they think about are your lousy sweets, even though I'm RIGHT THERE! It's so frustrating... I can't believe I'm fighting for their attention and LOSING! I tried sweetening the tea until it makes me gag, but nothing works! Am I yesterday's news? Tossed out so they can rot their teeth with candy bars?!
  • Asugi: Geez, you whine a lot.
  • Soleil: Fine! I know that side my bread's buttered on! If I can't beat you, I'll join you!
  • Asugi: Uh...
  • Soleil: I'll make my OWN candy and pass it around, just like I know you do! Then we'll see who the girls swoon for!
  • Asugi: Heh. Trying to beat me at my own game, huh? It's on now. But remember, making quality candy is an art. And I am an artist. You talk a good game, but you'll find it's not so easy to pull off.
  • Soleil: Heheh. I see what you're doing, and I won't be scared off. Soon enough, it'll be YOU tossed aside like day-old cake. And don't come crying to me when it happens!

B Support Edit

  • Soleil: Arrrrrrghhhhhh! ASUGI!
  • Asugi: Is there a problem, Soleil? Urgh... what is that burning smell?! Hey, whoa, get away from me!
  • Soleil: LOOK AT THIS!
  • Asugi: What am I looking at? A black lump? Have you been mining coal?
  • Soleil: No! This was SUPPOSED to be the hard candy you were making.
  • Asugi: That doesn't look like any candy I've ever seen. What recipe were you using...?
  • Soleil: That's what I wanna know! I made it just the way you did when I was spying on you! I was careful to follow every step exactly like I saw you doing it. Ugh... my dream of winning over all the girls with delicious candy... It's turned to horrible slag, just like this gross, black un-candy.
  • Asugi: Speaking of which, PLEASE throw that thing away. It's making me retch.
  • Soleil: I dunno. I hate to see all my hard work go to waste.
  • Asugi: I hate to break it to you, but we're long past that point. Any girl you offer THAT to might not ever speak to you again. Besides, you don't have the first idea about how to hide it. If you keep the candy under your armpit, not only will it break, it'll smell terrible.
  • Soleil: Huh, good point. Though I think that might actually have improved this batch.
  • Asugi: Face it, Soleil. Your candy is never going to be a hit with the ladies.
  • Soleil: *sigh* You're probably right.
  • Asugi: Heh... You always seemed pretty sharp on the battlefield. I wouldn't have you expected to flounder this hard at simple baking.
  • Soleil: You think I'm a good fighter?
  • Asugi: Sure. I think so, anyway. I can't count how many times you've saved me out there. It probably comes naturally to you. And that's how you should approach those girls you like, too. Don't force yourself to use my technique. Just do what comes naturally.
  • Soleil: That's good advice. I'll remember that!
  • Asugi: All that aside, do you still want to learn to make candy?
  • Soleil: Hmmm... sure, why not!
  • Asugi: OK. I'll teach you for real so you don't have to crib off what you think I'm doing. I owe you that much from battle.
  • Soleil: Really?! Whoa, thanks! I take back all the stuff I said. You're a swell guy after all!
  • Asugi: Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Get your hands off me! You've still got that horrible gunk on you, and I don't want that stuff on my clothes!
  • Soleil: Whoops! Lemme change real quick.
  • Asugi: Not HERE! Ugh! I wasn't planning on using my ninjutsu today, but here we are. Hrah!
  • Soleil: Huh? Where'd Asugi go? Asugi? Hellooooooo? *sniff* Hmm, there's a burned smell fading behind me. That would explain it...

A Support Edit

  • Soleil: Asugi, I did it! See for yourself! The sweets smell really, really good!
  • Asugi: Nicely done. Now all you have to do is chill them, wrap them up, and hide them in your clothes.
  • Soleil: It's weird. The longer I look at these, the less I can believe I made them. So you think the girls will like these, do you?
  • Asugi: Oh yeah. They'll be falling all over themselves for your sweets.
  • Soleil: And you're not saying that to flatter me?
  • Asugi: On my honor. If I was one of your girls, I'd be drooling right now. ... Sorry, that got away from me. You know what I mean.
  • Soleil: Hahah, understood. You know, I think I'm going to stop copying you once I get your candy recipe down.
  • Asugi: What? But you tried so hard.
  • Soleil: Not as hard as you did. You act cold, but you're really nice. You did so much to help me. Those girls who I thought were only after your candy... I think they were really attracted to what a good guy you are. So even if I somehow made better candy than you could, it wouldn't help.
  • Asugi: This is great. Keep those compliments coming. You're falling for me too now, huh?
  • Soleil: Ahaha, please! Let's not get ahead of ourselves. Maybe if you were a little cuter... but sadly, you're not my type.
  • Asugi: Hah... I should have known.
  • Soleil: Thanks, Asugi. You taught me something more important than now to make candy. I'm going to win those girls over in my own way!
  • Asugi: That's now it's done. You can't go through life down someone else's path. It wouldn't have meant anything if those girls fell for a recipe that I taught you.
  • Soleil: All the same, I got you something as thanks for today.
  • Asugi: Oh yeah? What'd you... Soleil! This is... I don't know what to say!
  • Soleil: It's the weekly special pastry from the town's best bakery.
  • Asugi: You got this just for me?! Soleil, you're my favorite person in the whole world! No joke, no flattery, I could kiss you right now.
  • Soleil: Heheh, looks like waking up early to get in line paid off. That's the kind of effort I need to put in to win those girls' hearts, too... Not copying anyone else, but coming up with my own ideas! I can't wait!

S Support Edit

  • Asugi: I've been hearing interesting things about you from the girls around camp. They're talking about how much fun it is to go out with Soleil.
  • Soleil: No way! You're not pulling my leg, right?
  • Asugi: Nope. You know all the best places in town to go for sweets.
  • Soleil: Ahaha, I might have you to thank for that. I had to try a bunch of places when I was out shopping for those pastries for you.
  • Asugi: It's not just the girls, mind you. I hear things from the guys, too. They're all impressed at how good you are in battle.
  • Soleil: Yeah? Well, that's not as exciting. Let's go back to how into me the girls are.
  • Asugi: I... I'm serious, Soleil. You've got a lot of people interested in you.
  • Soleil: Hah, you say that like it's a bad thing. Wait... is it? Asugi...
  • Asugi: ... *blushes*
  • Soleil: Are you jealous that I've stolen your thunder?
  • Asugi: No!
  • Soleil: Hmm, true, I did stop stealing your act. Then what's got you so upset?
  • Asugi: *sigh* All right, I'll stop beating around the bush. I'm worried you'll get so caught up in one of them that you won't have time for me.
  • Soleil: What?
  • Asugi: I dunno... I'd miss you. We'd just gotten to be friends, and I hate the idea of losing that. We haven't even been to a candy store together! I have so much to show you! I have fun hanging out with you. I know you like spending time with me too. And I'm worried you'll forget about that as soon as the next cute girl comes along.
  • Soleil: Asugi...
  • Asugi: I don't care if it sounds silly. I had to get it off my chest.
  • Soleil: It does sound ridiculous! For cripes' sake, Asugi... To hear you talk, it's impossible to have more than one friend at once. Why would hanging out with the girls mean I couldn't spend time with you?
  • Asugi: Then... you wouldn't ditch me? Even if you found a girlfriend?
  • Soleil: No way. You're too good a friend to abandon like that!
  • Asugi: Whew!
  • Soleil: I can't believe we're even having this conversation.
  • Asugi: Heh... I do feel a little silly, now that it's all out in the open. But it's good we talked about it. Now I know for sure you'll stick with me. I'll never doubt you again—I promise.
  • Soleil: You'd better not! If there's one thing you can count on, it's me being your friend.
  • Asugi: Yeah.
  • Soleil: Now then... what were you saying about a tour of the sweetshops in town?
