(So this is something that I’ve been wanting to write out for quite a while now ever since I played and beaten this game quite some time ago, but I just didn’t get around to finally doing it until this precise last minute, like usual, and another reason that this was suddenly prompted upon was being “immensely inspired” by seeing emmych’s lovely fan-piece of these two. So, I thought, “Why not? It’s been a while since I’ve written one of these. Why not go for gusto?”

This originally was attended to be written and released on Boxing Day in succession with RMN’s Secret Santa 2014 event that we had going on. But I guess someone must have missed the memo on that one… (I’m sorry.)

I was a special case for this event because I had no games of my own up as of yet to enter this thing officially, so I just decided to play along anyways and just give out a nice gift to someone in the spirit of giving, and what not.)


- - -

This scene of “unfortunate events” is supposed to take place after the scene in Lothlorien (after you finish beating that awful Eos Shrine) when Patrick, one of the game’s central, main characters, leaves your party for a while, leaving Laine and the others in the dust for quite some time to search for him and continue onwards on their quest.

It’s late; the party has been travelling on the road for quite some time now, and they’ve decided to stop in and stay at the local Inn in Lidgeton, another town in the game, to rest up and recuperate for the next day.

…What follows afterwards is a fascinating night that, at least, for Cillian will never forget.


- Enjoy!

DISCLAIMER: There are definitely some suggestive mature themes thrown in here at times; that I cannot lie. So, yeah…cover your eyes up during those parts if you’re sensitive towards that type of stuff. Other than that, it’s relatively tame…at least in the swearing department of things, that is.




Lidgeton Hotel – 10: 24 P.M.



* Our heroes are just about to check in at the hotel as they wait inside in the lobby *

* Laine is currently talking to the Innkeeper up at the front desk while Siglud and Cillian are standing up together up against a wall while waiting for her to come back *

* A conversation ensures *


[ Siglud ]
“*yawnnnn* That sure was onnne tough trip roaming
throughout the countryside, battling all those monsters,
and stuff…”


[ Siglud ]
“I tell ya, Cil’, going all that way, doing all that heavy
lifting while still keeping an eye on Ms. Laine here to make
sure that’s she safe REALLY works up quite the appetite.”


[ Siglud ]
“…Ain’t that right, Cillian, my boy? *put his hand on Cillian’s shoulder*”


[ Cillian ]
“What do you mean, ‘tough trip roaming throughout the
countryside?’ *takes Siglud’s hand off his shoulder*
We just used one of those stupid ‘Warp Nodes’ to get here,
remember?”


[ Siglud ]
“Still, you gotta admit; it was one tough trip.”


[ Cillian ]
“Ugh…”


* Slight pause *


[ Cillian ]
“…Where is Ms. Laine, anyway?”


[ Siglud ]
“Oh, she’s just talking to the Innkeeper up at the front
to book us all in a room there.”


[ Siglud ]
“I tell ya, with Patty-cakes gone for a while
it should be a little bit more flexible on our income
when it comes to paying for something as extravagant
as staying in this four-star hotel here…”


[ Siglud ]
“…Sometimes you got to look at the good side of
things first before you truly marvel in the bad side of things,
right, Cillian?”


[ Cillian ]
“…So, what you’re trying to say here is you don’t really care
about what happens to Mr. Patrick then, huh? Is that what you’re
really trying to say here?”


[ Siglud ]
“*hunches down* – Of course I caaare!”


[ Siglud ]
“It’s just that if I can get the opportunity to save a couple of bucks
there whenever I can - then I’ll take it.”


[ Cillian ]
“Oh lord.”


[ Siglud ]
“Besides, times are tough for us knights as it is. You gotta
squeeze every penny there.”


[ Siglud ]
“Also, besides, Patrick can take care of himself out there, anyways;
he’s a big boy! He’s watched us show those meanies out there
a thing or two while watching us do our ‘special moves’.”


[ Siglud ]
“Besides, what better way to learn than learn from the greats?
I’m sure he’ll be fine.”


[ Cillian ]
“Well…I do miss having him around. It sure made fighting
a lot easier with him covering us from the rear.”


[ Siglud ]
“— More like ‘cowarding from the rear!’ *attempts high five*”


[ Cillian ]
“…”


[ Siglud ]
“*lowers hand* — Oh come on, it was a joke!”


[ Cillian ]
“…Yeah, sure.”


* A slight silence soon follows briefly in the room as Laine finishes talking and checking in with the Innkeeper and slowly begins to approach Siglud and Cillian *


[ Siglud ]
“Heeeey, looks like she’s done.”


[ Cillian ]
“*lifts head up* So…how’d it go? Did you have
enough money to register all of us for a room?”


[ Cillian ]
“I mean, I don’t mind Siglud and I camping outside if
you don’— *Siglud kicks Cillian’s foot* ow!”


[ Laine ]
“!”


[ Siglud ]
“*gags Cillian’s mouth* What my friend here is TRYING
to say is that one of us would be ‘delighted’ to bunk in
a room with you if that so happens to help…”


[ Siglud ]
“…Er, I mean, to protect you…of course. *snickers*”


[ Cillian ]
“*gasping for air* Can’t…breath…!”


[ Siglud ]
“Oops. *let’s go of Cillian* Sorry there, Cil’.”


[ Cillian ]
“*pant* *pant*”


[ Laine ]
“Yeah…about that…”


[ Siglud ]
“Is there a problem, my sweet?”


[ Laine ]
“*sighs*…Don’t make me hurt you right now.”


[ Siglud ]
“Ooo – feisty!”


[ Laine ]
“Look, about the rooms…apparently the innkeeper
up there told me that he has a bit of a shortage
at the moment in regards to that…”


[ Laine ]
“…So, unfortunately, I could only book in two rooms
for the rest of the night…and only one of those
rooms happen to have only one bed to sleep in.”


[ Siglud ]
“Which means–!!!”


[ Cillian ]
“...Which means that one of us is going to have
to sleep in the exact same bed with another person…”


[ Laine ]
“Precisely.”


[ Siglud ]
(“Oh, this is almost too good to be TRUE!!!”)


[ Laine ]
“?”


[ Siglud ]
“I mean…how unfortunate.”


[ Laine ]
“Yeah, I bet so. *rolls eyes*”


[ Siglud ]
“Soooo who’s the lucky guy tonight, huh – Ms. Laine???
*whips out and sprays his mouth with air freshener*”


[ Cillian ]
“Ugh. *facepalms*”


[ Laine ]
“Not you if that’s what you were thinking.”


[ Siglud ]
“Huh?”


[ Laine ]
“Sorry Siglud. It’s just that…um…how should I put
this…???”


[ Siglud ]
“…”


[ Cillian ]
“…You don’t trust him?”


[ Laine ]
“Yeah, that seems about right.”


[ Siglud ]
“Whaddya mean, ‘I’m not trustworthy?’ I’m
the most trusting, caring individual that you’ll
ever meet.”


[ Siglud ]
“Look, if you wanna sleep with Cillian for a change
instead of me – then why don’t you just come out
and just say it? I don’t mind.”


[ Siglud ]
“*sharp, goofy looking look towards Cillian*
Besides, the ol’ boy here could use the practice.


[ Cillian ]
“*blushes* W—What…?”


[ Siglud ]
“Cillian – this is your big chance! I always knew that
you had it a little in you, a little bit of the ‘Siglud charm’.”


[ Siglud ]
“At least this will finally prove to me that you’re not gay…”


[ Cillian ]
“N-N…Now hold on a second there, Siglud…!”


[ Cillian ]
“I don’t know what you’re trying to do here, but
cut it out!


[ Siglud ]
“Oh, Cillian, you tease –!”


[ Cillian ]
“Unnh…”


[ Laine ]
“Siglud, you idiot, none of you are sleeping in
the same room as of me.”


[ Siglud ]
“…What? *disappointed groan*”


[ Laine ]
“…I said that none of you are sleeping in the
same room a—“


[ Siglud ]
“Yeah, I know what you just said there, but…w-what about
the protection…from the things?”


[ Siglud ]
“What happens if that hooded guy manages to show
up again in the middle of the night while you’re sleeping!?
Surely you jest!”


[ Siglud ]
“That’s why you need one of us – preferably me – to
stay with you, protect you…*softens voice* and keep
you a little extra warm at night so that you don’t freeze…”


[ Laine ]
“You’re sweet… But I’m afraid I can take care of
myself if something was bound to happen, with or
without you.”


[ Laine ]
“And besides – Siglud, believe me, you would
be the last person that I would ever need to use as
an extra blanket, if you can catch my drift.”


[ Siglud ]
“…Geez, shut out again…”


[ Cillian ]
“So that means that…”


[ Laine ]
“*nods and sighs* ‘Fraid so…”


[ Cillian ]
“Wait, no…*backs up* no you’re not serious about
what I thinking you’re thinking of, right, me and
Siglud…???”


[ Laine ]
“*puts his hand on Cillian* …Sorry, Cillian.”


[ Cillian ]
“No…no – please…!”


[ Laine ]
“I’m sorry, Cillian, but you’re going to have muster
up whatever courage that you have and just take one for the
team by…sleeping with…well, that. *points to Siglud*”


[ Cillian ]
“Y-Y…You gotta be kiddin’ me…!!!”


[ Laine ]
“I know I wouldn’t wish this on my worst of my enemies,
but unfortunately you gotta do it; there’s only
two rooms and two beds…”


[ Cillian ]
“W-Well…why can’t I just stay in your room then and
just sleep on the floor?


[ Laine ]
“I like my space.”


[ Cillian ]
“Uhnnn…”


[ Laine ]
“Sorry, Cillian.”


[ Cillian ]
“…”


[ Cillian ]
“*sighs*…No, that’s okay; you’re the team captain; you’re
our leader… I guess I gotta do what you have to
tell me to do…”


[ Cillian ]
“…even it means degrading myself to the highest
levels of indecency here…*groans*”


[ Laine ]
“*hands Cillian the room key*”


[ Siglud ]
“…So I’m sleeping with Cil’, huh? Cool! It will
be like having a big slumber party.”


[ Laine ]
“… Glad you find this amusing.”


[ Laine ]
“*turns away* Anyways…it’s getting late and
we should probably just turn in for the evening.
Tomorrow’s going to be a big day and all.”


[ Laine ]
“I suggest that both of you guys don’t stay up too much.
I need you both to be at your fullest for tomorrow,
okay?”


[ Siglud ]
“— Can do, boss! *embraces Cillian*”


[ Cillian ]
“— Wait, Laine, j-just wait a second for a moment!
Let’s not be too hasty here!!! *tries to pull away
from Siglud*”


[ Siglud ]
“Ooo, you’re gettin’ a little bit tense there, Cillian.”


[ Laine ]
“…”


[ Laine ]
“…Good night, boys.”


[ Laine ]
“And Siglud?”


[ Siglud ]
“Yes? Have you suddenly changed your mind?”


[ Laine ]
“…”


[ Laine ]
“Just…please don’t hurt Cillian too much tonight, okay?
I kind of need him to be around for at least a little while
longer…”


[ Laine ]
“…you know, being the only other intelligent person
that I can relate to in this room.”


[ Siglud ]
“Don’t worry. I won’t hurt Cillian too much tonight.
You have my word.”


[ Laine ]
“Good.”


[ Laine ]
“*begins to walk away* Well…good night.”


[ Siglud ]
“Night.”


* Laine leaves the scene to go up towards her room *

* The pair continue to watch her until she leaves completely and closes the door *


[ Siglud ]
“…Well, shall we, Cillian? *clutches Cillian*”


[ Cillian ]
“…I think I’m going to throw up.”


[ Siglud ]
“—That’s the spirit!”


* Music fades as the scene slowly cuts to black, as Siglud drags and tugs on Cillian by the shoulder as they walk rather causally towards their room, leaving the lobby *




Single Suite, Room #22 – 10: 49 P.M.



* Scene finally fades back in with a new BGM starting to play as Siglud fiddles around with the room keys while finally managing to open the door while Cillian is struggling right behind him to hold on to an enormous amount of luggage in his hands. Siglud then flicks the lights on, illuminating the room, as nearly one second after that one bulb then immediately starts to flicker out and breaks *


[ Siglud ]
“Well – here it is: Room #22, just like it says so on the key.”


[ Siglud ]
“*turns around* Hey, Cillian, you sure you don’t need
any help carrying all that?”


[ Cillian ]
“*struggling* W-Well…n-now that you’ve mentioned it…”


[ Cillian ]
“*begins to lose his balance* Oh, shi - whaaaa…!!!
*trips and falls as all the luggage falls on the floor with him*”


[ Siglud ]
“!”


[ Siglud ]
“ — Cillian, you okay, my man?”


[ Cillian ]
