Fates Supports/Niles Oboro
Oboro: It's you...
Niles: Hey. If you're going to look like that, go stare at a wall or something.
Oboro: "Look like that"? What's that supposed to mean?
Niles: It means that nasty glare on your puss. You got some problem with me?
Oboro: ... Yeah. Not for anything you've done yet. But I can tell you're thinking about it. You've got this dark streak to you. It's not like you don't know what I'm talking about, right? If I ever gave you an opening, you'd seize the chance to jab me right in it.
Niles: Phew. Nothing gets by you, huh?
Oboro: I try to get along with everyone here. Even the Nohrians. But if you're going to be like that all the time, I won't bother.
Niles: And we wouldn't want that, right? Though now that I'm a little used to it... that gaze seems almost smoldering. It penetrates deep into my core, burning in a way that hurts so good...
Oboro: Quit messing around! I'm only working with you because Lord Takumi ordered it. As odious as it is, as much as I hate doing it, I have no choice. So why don't you make my life a little easier and meet me halfway?
Niles: Heh. You don't beat around the bush. I like that. Luckily for you, Lord Leo also wants us Nohrians to get along with Hoshido. So I'll play along. Excited yet?
Oboro: Ugh...stay calm...deep breaths…
Niles: Feel like exploring our relationship some more, Oboro? Plenty of depths to plumb there.
Oboro: Don't be gross, Niles.
Niles: What, you'd rather stay aloof?
Oboro: It's not an either-or thing. I do want to get to know you better. It's just...
Niles: Yeah, that look on your face says it all. The fire of hatred in your eyes... I'm drawn to it, like a moth.
Niles: Guess it'll take more than a couple smooth lines to bridge the gulf between us, hm?
Oboro: Those "smooth lines" of yours are the whole reason I'm giving you the stink-eye!
Niles: What? All I did is offer to get closer to you.
Niles: OK. I read you. I'll dial it down a little around you.
Oboro: That's all I'm asking for.
Niles: Now that that's out of the way... I say we have some "us time" until there's not a single thing between us.
Niles: ...Was that over the line?
Oboro: You're not even trying to make friends here, are you?
Niles: No, wait a minute. I am, really. Never mind that last thing. We're square now, right? Right...?
Oboro: Forget it. I already understand you better than I ever wanted to.
Niles: Hey, we were having a civil conversation! Why does it always end like this...?
Oboro: Afternoon, Niles.
Oboro: Uh...are you ignoring me?
Oboro: I don't speak throat-clearing. If you have something to say, come out and say it. It's never stopped you before.
Oboro: OK! I see how it is! If you don't want to talk, that's fine by me!
Oboro: I don't get it. We fight together well enough, don't we? You've saved me a few times. I've repaid the favor once or twice... You'd think we could behave like adults around each other, but no.
Niles: Wait...listen to me. I want to be friends with you too.
Oboro: Then why the silent treatment?!
Niles: Because every time I open my mouth, I say something that offends you.
Oboro: Yeah...I noticed.
Niles: I was never trying to—it just comes out that way. I try to make normal conversation, and it always sounds like shameless flirting. So I'm trying other things to get on your good side while keeping my mouth shut.
Oboro: So that's it... That explains why you kept totally silent that last time you saved me in battle.
Oboro: All right, let's talk. We've already got some things in common, don't we?
Niles: You're sure...? I don't want to get misunderstood again.
Oboro: It's fine. Just as long as you keep the innuendo to a minimum, OK?
Niles: Sure, no problem. It'd bring me all kinds of pleasure!
Niles: W-was I doing it again?! Sorry!
Oboro: Heh heh. It's OK. I'll forgive the slipup just this once.
Niles: Oboro. I have a gift for you.
Oboro: What are these? Dress robes? Wait...
Oboro: I come from a family of clothes merchants, so I know full well what these robes mean. They're specifically for the bride in a Hoshidan wedding ceremony.
Oboro: Why are you giving me this? Is this your idea of a joke?
Oboro: Uh, Niles...?
Niles: Every time I open my mouth, I say something to annoy you. So I got you a gift that gets my point across without having to say anything.
Oboro: Then that IS what you meant. You really want me to marry you.
Oboro: I'm impressed that a Nohrian man would do his homework on our wedding customs. This is just the kind of thing I'd pick out for myself if I was going to marry... But it's not enough! It's clear enough what you mean by the gift. But dammit, Niles, can't you just be an adult and say the words?!
Niles: ...Yeah, you got me. Here goes, then.
Oboro: I’m listening...
Niles: Marry me, Oboro. I couldn't have any woman but you. I love every part of you, from the crown of your head to your smallest fingernail. I want to be by your side until I breathe my last and pass on.
Oboro: Niles... Thanks. Both for saying that, and for saying it without being gross.
Niles: It was hard, but I managed. But you haven't answered the question...
Oboro: It sounds strange to say, but I've felt an attraction to you too. Not at first, mind you. At first you just came off as a creep.
Niles: Oboro, come on...
Oboro: But you really tried to change for me, and I thought that was sweet. So yeah, let's try this. How does it go again? "Until death do we part"?
Niles: I'll vow it if you will.
