Sola makes Jahiera leave
« on: July 25, 2003, 02:38:47 AM »
i'm standing in Saradush, Solaufien asks my char to dance, i let him, right after this Jahiera comes up and says, quote
"So. You have chosen to tell me through interpretive dance what you were too ashamed to admit.

That you...would make love to me under such PRETENSE...but as you seem to understand little else about how i feel, i will not bore you with the explanation of why i am outraged. I will simply take my leave of both of you."

Then Jahiera leaves and i can't get her back. Any idea why this is happening?   :blink:

Were you romancing Jaheira at the time?  If so, the dance made her jealous.  

If not... well, she's always beena fickle thing.    B)

You must have the Jaheira flirtpack installed, with the romance-conflict option. That Jaheira does not like to be two-timed.

Compton, that's hilarious. Any chance I could convince you to quote all of the Solaufein conflict text here for my benefit?

Since I know you DL'ed it at one point, I must now conclude that you didn't think one of my masterworks was worth a measly megabyte of permanent space on your drive. That hurts, man.

PC lines prefixed with r, some lines branch on how far along the romance is... you'll get the gist, though.

SPOILERS FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVEN'T PLAYED THE FLIRT PACK JAHEIRA/SOLAUFEIN ROMANCE CONFLICT.



// Solatalk 10
@0= ~I have noticed Solaufein spending a great deal of time with you lately. I suggest you take great care with him.~ [FWKLSYMU]
@1= ~As confused as you were leaving Candlekeep, his departure from home was in some ways more traumatic. He has left behind an entire world for one he was taught to consider evil. Do you realize that it burns him simply to stand under our sun?~
r    @2= ~...what's your point, Jaheira?~
r    @3= ~Yes, I have been spending time with Solaufein. He is an interesting and stimulating conversationalist. You should try it sometime.~
r    @4= ~I don't see why any of this is a problem.~
r    @5= ~Yes, he seems to need a friend. So what?~
@6= ~My point is that he seems to depend greatly on your advice and insight, [CHARNAME]. You might consider the responsibility he places upon you, as representative of the entire surface world, and tread carefullly.~
@7= ~And you might consider how much of a burden this is on your time and concentration.~
r    @8= ~I don't consider talking to him any more of a burden than talking to you.~
r    @9= ~Jaheira... is that jealousy I hear?~
r    @10= ~All right. If he distracts me, I will let him know. Okay?~
r    @11= ~I don't think I see a problem. But thanks for the warning.~
@12= ~You are about as sharp as an anvil at times, [CHARNAME].~
@13= ~Nothing of the sort. Unless you believe there is good reason.~
@14= ~That may be so. But he has much to adjust to, and you have much work still to be done. He sees you as the representative of the entire surface culture... and I wonder if he has your priorities clearly in mind.~
@15= ~I have said everything I wished to say on the matter. You will do as you will, I am sure.~
@16=~That was all I wanted you to think about, [CHARNAME].~
@17=~You are welcome. I am glad we understand one another, [CHARNAME].~

// Solatalk 12

@18=~Well. Now things are rather more clear. How neither of us noticed until now... of course.~ [FWKLSYMU]
@19=~I cannot say I am much surprised. It makes perfect sense. You are the only one to show him any kindness or patience in... well, perhaps his entire life.~
r       @20=~I don't have a clue what that little rant was about.~
r       @21=~Oh... you mean me and Solaufein... well... yeah.~
r       @22=~I am getting the same impression myself. What can I say? Maybe, being a drow, he doesn't really understand that my eyes are only for you.~
r       @23=~Go climb a tree, Jaheira, and mind your own damn business for a change.~
@24=~I had thought, after all this time together, that you had a stronger sense of commitment. Obviously, I was mistaken. About many things.~
@25=~I can endure much, but not such callous manipulation. If I am to know peace and balance, it quite obviously will be elsewhere, with others.~
@26=~Very well, [CHARNAME]. Enjoy your "jaluk."~
@27=~Oh? Did you not notice Solaufein take your hand and look deep into your eyes? Or was that another [CHARNAME]? A shared hallucination, perhaps?~
@28=~Obviously our new friend misunderstands a great deal. With all that has happened to him lately I suggest you be diplomatic. It would be better, I think, coming from you than from me.~
r       @29=~I'll tell him, Jaheira.~
r       @30=~Jaheira, your imagination is running away with you once again. That was an academic discussion, not a proposition.~
r       @31=~The hell I will. I'm quite happy with Solaufein's attentions.~
@32=~Do not think me upset with either of you, [CHARNAME]. These misunderstandings happen sometimes. All a part of the diversity of nature.~
@33=~Just so long as we all are clear where we stand.~
@34=~I suggest you do some soul-searching and ask yourself if you are being willfully blind. I will wait, but you cannot play the fool with him and me forever.~
@35=~"Yeah"? I admit that I did not expect Solaufein's feelings for you to be what they are, but you have to face that something must be said. Unless you intend your stammering to tell me that this is the way you wish things to be.~
r         @36=~Not in the least. I will set the record straight.~
r         @37=~Well... I... errr... I don't know!~
r         @38=~Actually, yes. I think he and I are going to make a great couple.~
@39=~That seems likely. Our relationship... almost any relationship between a man and woman on the surface would seem strange to a drow.~
@40=~I trust that you will think of a way to explain this to him. I suggest you be considerate... he may not take well to rejection after losing so much already.~

// Solatalk 14

@41=~So. You have chosen to tell me through interpretive dance what you were too ashamed to admit?~ [FWKLSYMU]
@42=~Perhaps it is an experiment or you feel you must be true to yourself in this. It does not matter. You had your opportunity to make yourself plain to either Solaufein or myself, and you have at long last done so.~
@43=~I obviously mistook you for... someone else.~
@44=~Considering your recent attentions I find it unlikely that you suddenly decided you prefer the masculine touch. I am not a toy to be used, [CHARNAME], and I will not allow you the satisfaction of treating me as such.~
@45=~That you... would make love to me, under such PRETENSE... but as you seem to understand little else about how I feel, I will not bore you with the explanation of why I am outraged. I will simply take my leave of the both of you.~

Wow, great writing, Jason! I haven't played BG2 in nearly a year, so I haven't played any of the flirt packs.

Thanks. It has been an interesting challenge trying to come up with a plausible way to have five romance partners complain ABOUT Solaufein without complaining TO Solaufein. :)

That would be particularly tricky for Viconia. I can just imagine what she'd really do to a drow male that was muscling in on her territory, were the Trademeet Accords not in place.

...yeah.

She gets some decent lines all the same, though.

So does the PC.

"You saw that?!? I mean, uh, what are you talking about?"

Bah, you have the mod, don't you?

Different branches on Active=1 vs LG vs CN, should be fairly apparent. And I think I reuse some of the lines from the 12 section in 14, but, again, you get the idea.

You can always read this stuff with InfExp.

// Solatalk 10

@0    = ~It would seem our new companion Solaufein has learned much about fraternizing with the enemy.~
r @1    = ~Enemy? Solaufein is my friend and a valuable ally.~
r @2    = ~Talk is cheap, Anomen. It doesn't bother me.~
r @3    = ~I know. It could be worse, he could be talking YOUR ear off.~
r @4    = ~I have no idea what you mean.~
@5    = ~Forgive my improper term, then, my lady. I sought merely to shield you from unwanted distraction.~
@6    = ~Very well, then, my lady. If you do not find his distractions unbearable, I shall refrain from further comment.~
@7    = ~It would be a small sacrifice to ask if it brought you peace of mind, my lady.~
@8    = ~I refer only to the man's constant interruptions and chatter which no doubt are proving an unwelcome distraction.~
r @9    = ~On the contrary, I very much enjoy stimulating conversation for a change.~
r @10   = ~It just goes in one ear and out the other when he talks to me. Haven't you noticed?~
r @11   = ~It is not your problem in any case.~
@12   = ~I see, my lady. My apologies if my breeding has not allowed me the centuries he has had to hone my tongue.~
@13   = ~I confess I had not, but 'tis a relief to know that he is not unnecessarily burdening you.~
@14   = ~I consider your well-being of paramount importance, [CHARNAME].~

// Solatalk 12

@15   = ~Such impertinence! To be so cavalier, to touch you without leave with such intent in his eyes... my lady, I am incensed beyond words! This Solaufein must be told in no uncertain terms what his place in this group is and that he is not to exceed his bounds!~
r @16   = ~Wow. Get insanely jealous much, Anomen?~
r @17   = ~You took the words right out of my mouth. I will take care of it and tell him he is not to do it again.~
r @18   = ~Anomen, all he did was hold my hand. You are wildly overreacting.~
r @19   = ~I have had about enough of your possessiveness, Anomen. At least Solaufein respects me as a person!~
@20   = ~Nay, but it must be some madness that afflicts Solaufein to be so brazen. Something must be done, [CHARNAME].~
r @21   = ~I will talk to him about it, Anomen. No need to trouble yourself.~
r @22   = ~There is really nothing to say, Anomen. We were having an intellectual discussion, nothing more.~
r @23   = ~The only thing I see wrong here is your attitude.~
@24   = ~My mind is at ease already.~
@25   = ~It may seem that way, [CHARNAME]. I should not expect you to recognize these warning signs in the eyes of hungry men, but it is clear to me that within Solaufein's heart grows a dark desire. 'Twould be better to tell him the truth of matters between you now.~
r @26   = ~But, Anomen, the truth is that I share those feelings for him. You could not tell?~
r @27   = ~You are right, of course. I will tend to it immediately.~
@28   = ~You would... after all this time, after I have given of not only life's blood but my hopes and dreams for you? Damn you, heartless wench! Damn you both! If you and that filthy drow value your lives, our paths will never again cross!~
@29   = ~My... my possessiveness?~
@30   = ~Perhaps I have been blind, or a fool.~
@31   = ~It would seem I have misunderstood much, my lady. Please forgive my presumption and... let us not speak further of this.~
@32   = ~I had thought, [CHARNAME], that I have shown you proper respect and care in all manners of mind and body. If... if I have given offense I shall leave you before more damage is done.~
r @33   = ~No, Anomen, do not go. I still value your company as a friend.~
r @34   = ~Don't be so dramatic.~
r @35   = ~That would be best. Less tension for everyone. I hope you find someone new soon.~
r @36   = ~It's about time.~
@37   = ~I admit that I might stay, and assist, and admire you quietly from afar... but that would be selfish. The Order has entrusted me with important responsibilities, and I shall neglect them no longer. Farewell.~
@38   = ~It seems unlikely that I could ever replace you in my heart, [CHARNAME]. I shall cherish your strength and beauty fondly, always.~
@39   = ~I have sworn to live and die at your command! I have remolded myself in your image, and lost the Order for you!~
@40   = ~Do not speak to me of possessiveness! Do not speak to me ever again if you and your filthy drow lover value your lives! Damn you both!~

// Solatalk 14

@41   = ~I can bear no more!~
@42   = ~Despite your denials your feelings for Solaufein have become quite clear. While I cannot understand this, I shall provide no more distraction for your attentions.~
@43   = ~I cannot believe you would deceive me so, and hide your true intentions from me. I have obviously failed you in all things, and shall only find answers elsewhere. Farewell.~

Hi, Jonte!

Poor Anomen!  I cannot imagine ever hurting or betraying him in such a manner.

I hadn't really thought of it that way. Probably easier to read than it is to say.

Too bad it's not the other way around.

"Stop this possessiveness, Solaufein!"

Actually, I was merely thinking that it would take you less time to dig out the right sections in the TRA files (since you know the material) than it would for me to grope around through all of the other colorful material in the flirtpacks.

Nice dialogue, by the way.
