Fates Supports/Subaki Sakura
Subaki: *yawn* If I didn't know better, I'd think I was sleepy...
Sakura: Subaki, did you just say you were tired...?
Subaki: Ah! L-Lady Sakura...! Of course not! I said nothing of the sort.
Sakura: Oh, I must have misheard. I've never heard you complain before...
Subaki: Well, I've never felt fatigue before... I doubt I would recognize it.
Sakura: Subaki, when's the last time you got some sleep? Now that I think about it... You were in that epic battle yesterday. We barely scraped by, and then... Right after that, you attended the strategy meeting, didn't you? And I heard you're commanding the rear troops and organizing all of the supplies...
Subaki: That is all true...but as you know, for me, it's a piece of cake!
Sakura: I'm not doubting your skills, but please... don't run yourself into the ground, OK?
Subaki: That would be impossible!
Sakura: I know how hard you work to make it look easy. You don't have to pretend with me.
Subaki: Shhh! L-Lady Sakura...don't speak another word!
Subaki: I just remembered some supplies I need to attend to. Excuse me...
Subaki: *sigh* This is terrible!
Sakura: Subaki, what are you reading there? It has you so tense, you're wrinkling the pages!
Subaki: L-Lady Sakura! Th-this? It's...nothing... *sigh* There's no use trying to hide it... The rumor will spread soon anyway.
Sakura: What rumor?
Subaki: I accidentally doubled our weapons order. See? Right here. It should say 10.
Sakura: Haha! Is that all? That's OK. It's better to have more weapons than not enough!
Subaki: Only an idiot could mess up something so...basic! This is devastating. My perfect record has a blot in it now. I'm finished!
Sakura: Now, Subaki...I can think of a few slipups you've recovered from in the past...
Subaki: I keep hoping you'll forget that...uh... incident.
Sakura: How could I forget your arrival at the castle? You were so splendid! ...And then you fell off of your pegasus... right in front of Hana and me? It was endearing...
Subaki: More like embarrassing. You shouldn't delight in other people's misfortunes...
Sakura: I-I'm sorry...! At least I didn't laugh like Hana...
Subaki: Well, don't get your hopes up. I will never repeat a mistake like that again.
Sakura: Subaki, I'm sorry!
Subaki: A flawed soldier is worthless! I must take my leave. Excuse me...
Sakura: Subaki...! I think he misunderstood me...
Sakura: Subaki, I've been thinking about our conversation...
Subaki: N-not this again! Lady Sakura, please, let's leave it in the past.
Sakura: But I'm worried about you trying to be perfect all the time. No one needs that!
Subaki: Please understand. I've been destined for the castle guard since my youth. That's why my parents set the bar so high. I had to be perfect at all times. Otherwise, I would embarrass myself in front of royalty. No mistakes allowed!
Sakura: But everyone makes mistakes!
Subaki: Not me. I will not be the flaw in your reputation, Lady Sakura.
Subaki: Your retainers are a reflection of you. I was ashamed when I fell from the saddle. But you were gracious and forgiving. You chose me as your retainer anyway... I swore then that I would never let you down again. I would be flawless.
Sakura: But, Subaki...feeling sorry for you wasn't why I chose you.
Subaki: It wasn't?
Sakura: No. I chose you because I thought you were amazing. You were brave and strong! You were such a hard worker! That one little fall made you all the more charming.
Sakura: Yes! Now, please, stop torturing yourself! There's no need to try so hard!
Subaki: Lady Sakura, you accept me as I am. Thank you! It is an honor to be in your service.
Sakura: Thanks, Subaki. I depend on you!
Subaki: Lady Sakura, I would like to swear an oath to you.
Subaki: Yes. Your speech the other day left quite an impression on me. It would be an honor if I might renew my vow to serve you.
Sakura: O-oh, all right. Go ahead, then.
Subaki: I was born into a family that served the Hoshidan crown for generations. My parents raised me to be a paragon of strength and skill.
Subaki: I thought the only way to make others happy was to perform perfectly...
Sakura: B-but you've learned that's not true, right?
Subaki: Yes. You've completely destroyed my entire belief system!
Sakura: Destroyed it?! I-I didn't mean to! But I guess you're right! I did, didn't I?
Subaki: Hahaha, it's OK. I'm extremely grateful that you did. Those values were a source of pride. I didn't think I'd forget them so easily. And yet...when I'm with you...I want to show you my perfect side... and my not-so-perfect side.
Sakura: I accept your oath and would ask one more thing of you.
Subaki: Yes! What is it? I will do anything my liege asks.
Sakura: I would be much happier if you thought of me as a woman, not a liege. I love you, Subaki. Is that wrong?
Subaki: O-of course not! As your retainer, I assumed you would always be beyond my reach. Even though I loved you, I resigned myself to be nothing more than your loyal retainer.
Sakura: So...you have feelings for me too?
Subaki: Yes! From now on, I will serve you both as my liege and the woman I love!
Sakura: Thank you. I love you too, Subaki!
