Daily Discussions

Anything you need?
Mother Gothel.png

Player, you have my attention. Shall I give you some motherly advice?

→  Okay!
Mother Gothel.png Oh, it's so nice to have someone appreciate my kindness!
Mother Gothel.png Unlike some ungrateful children who will remain unnamed.
→  You're not my mother.
Mother Gothel.png

True, but I give very good advice.

→   Your advice is kind of toxic.
Mother Gothel.png

Toxic! Oh, I'm wounded, Player!

Mother Gothel.png

I come to you offering nothing but support, and you insult me.

  • sigh* Fine. Give me some advice.
Mother Gothel.png

What would you like advice about, dear?

→  Life.
Mother Gothel.png Well, life is a race, Player. If you're not winning, you're losing.
Mother Gothel.png And most people are forever losing. You must make sure you win -- always.
→  Romance.
Mother Gothel.png Oh my advice about romance is simple...
Mother Gothel.png Don't.
Mother Gothel.png It's never worth it. You can only depend on yourself.
→  Reasons I shouldn't leave my tower.
Mother Gothel.png

I see. Now you're the one teasing me. I'll remember that.

Do you never tire of looking at yourself?
Mother Gothel.png

Ahh, I never tire of looking at my cheekbones. High cheekbones are universally attractive, and mine are particularly fine.

Mother Gothel.png

Good bone structure is the foundation of beauty.

→  That's kind of creepy.
Mother Gothel.png

Only for those who don't share it, dear.

→  I imagine you like that because it doesn't fade with age.
Mother Gothel.png

Very insightful. Now be a dear and never speak to me of age again.

→  Beauty comes from the inside.
Mother Gothel.png

People say that, but they never mean it.

I love taking care of the Valley.
Mother Gothel.png

Ah, Player... It's occurred to me that only you and I have the interests of this Valley at heart; don't you agree?

→  Yes, I do.
Mother Gothel.png

Finally, someone who listens to me!

→  What makes you think that?
Mother Gothel.png

Well, just look around...

→  I think everyone cares for the Valley in their own way.
Mother Gothel.png

Perhaps, but how many of them have proof to support their claims? Few or none, I'm sure.

Mother Gothel.png

They're all living in their grand Houses, only caring for themselves and their personal whims. Unlike me. Why, I've truly dedicated myself to tending to the Giant Willow.

→  I love the Giant Willow!
Mother Gothel.png Then maybe YOU ought to live in it! Ha-ha! Only kidding, dear. Don't look so serious.
Mother Gothel.png After all, I was the one who helped you grow that Giant Willow in the first place, you know.
→  Why do you look after it?
Mother Gothel.png Because someone needs to! Plants are like children. They require constant care if you don't want them to grow up spoiled.
Mother Gothel.png I was the one who helped you make sure the tree would grow strong and tall. So... of course, I stayed to watch over it.
→  You can always stop, you know...
Mother Gothel.png

Then there would be no one to care for the willow I helped you grow. No, Player. I must stay where I am.

Mother Gothel.png

And that is proof that only you and I care about what's best for our Valley.

Something bothering you?
Mother Gothel.png

Have you seen that absurd stall in the Meadow?

Mother Gothel.png

Run by... who is it... Doofy? The selection is so paltry.

→  What do you mean?
Mother Gothel.png

The wares are nothing but bland, common items.

→  I like Goofy's Stall.
Mother Gothel.png

And I'm sure it's fine if you need something common, such as apples.

→  Excuse me. His name is Goofy.
Mother Gothel.png

Whoever he is, he has an inexcusably sparse stock.

Mother Gothel.png

It's completely useless if you're in need of more... unique... ingredients.

→  Like what?
Mother Gothel.png Well, as a purely theoretical example...
Mother Gothel.png A youth serum.
Mother Gothel.png Or parsnips.
→  Are you gonna brew evil potions?
Mother Gothel.png Evil potions? Never. Perish the thought.
Mother Gothel.png And don't ever confuse me with Ursula again.
→  You could talk to Goofy about it.
Mother Gothel.png I've spoken to that... individual.
Mother Gothel.png I fear that whatever changes he attempts to make will be less than inspiring.
What's wrong?
Mother Gothel.png

Player, I'm feeling a bit run-down. Unappreciated. Alone.

Mother Gothel.png

Say something to make me feel better.

→  Your hair is so dark and glossy.
Mother Gothel.png

I've often thought it's one of my best features.

→  Your dress sense is on point.
Mother Gothel.png

It is, isn't it? This is velvet, you know.

→  You're capable and cunning.
Mother Gothel.png

Mmm. That's true, I am.

Mother Gothel.png

Go on. There must be more.

→  You're absolutely ruthless.
Mother Gothel.png I'll assume you meant that as a compliment.
Mother Gothel.png Ahh, I feel much better now. Thank you, dear.
→  You're a strong, independent woman.
Mother Gothel.png I am, aren't I?
Mother Gothel.png Ahh, I feel much better now. Thank you, dear.
→  Your skin has very few wrinkles!
Mother Gothel.png Correction, dear -- my skin has NO wrinkles.
Mother Gothel.png Clearly, your eyesight leaves something to be desired.
You know so many things.
Mother Gothel.png

Player, I feel that I must share a bit of my knowledge of the world, so you have a chance to survive out here on your own...

Mother Gothel.png

Now, you must have noticed the flowers growing around the Village. So beautiful and majestic... like me! Ha-ha-ha!

→  I love flowers!
Mother Gothel.png Of course you do. After all, who doesn't?
Mother Gothel.png You must remember that every part of the Valley is home to one or two specific types of flowers...
→  What about them?
Mother Gothel.png Well, I know how children are, so I feel it needs to be said... Try not to eat them. It wouldn't be good for you. Also...
Mother Gothel.png You must remember that every part of the Valley is home to one or two specific types of flowers...
→  Ugh, flowers...
Mother Gothel.png Player, you really don't have an eye for beauty, do you?
Mother Gothel.png Oh well, not everyone can appreciate the finer things.
Mother Gothel.png Still, you should remember that every part of the Valley is home to one or two specific types of flowers...
Mother Gothel.png

[random response from the following options]

  • In the Plaza, you'll find Dandelions, a common, charmless weed that reminds me a little of you! Ha-ha, only kidding, dear. But also Penstemons of many colors.
  • If you want Rising Penstemons or Daisies, you'll have to go to the Meadow.
  • Some flowers even grow on the sand of Dazzle Beach. Hydrangeas and Sunflowers to be exact.
  • If ever you need Bell Flowers or Star Lilies, look under the trees in the Forest of Valor.
  • For example, if you visit my beloved Glade, you'll find all sorts of Marsh Milkweed. White, orange, purple, blue... Almost a rainbow of them.
  • But only one type of flower grows in the Frosted Heights -- the Passion Lily. Though it does come in many colors.
  • Bromeliads and Houseleeks grow only on the Sunlit Plateau.
  • If you feel brave enough to explore the Forgotten Lands, you can gather Impatiens and Nasturtiums. Appropriately named flowers for that ugly place, if you ask me.
  • You look like you have a question.
    Mother Gothel.png

    Tell me, what do you think magic is, Player?

    →  Power.
    Mother Gothel.png

    Oh, you couldn't be more wrong

    →  Cheap trickery.
    Mother Gothel.png

    Ha! That skepticism will serve you well. But you're wrong.

    →  I'm not sure.
    Mother Gothel.png

    Well, at least you're willing to admit your ignorance.

    Mother Gothel.png

    Magic is simply an advantage.

    Mother Gothel.png

    A tool to be utilized to meet one's goals.

    →  That's very cynical.
    Mother Gothel.png

    Perhaps to you. To me, it's merely practical.

    →  That's very practical.
    Mother Gothel.png

    Perhaps to you. To me, it's merely practical.

    →  I believe there's more to magic than that.
    Mother Gothel.png

    And people will use that belief to take advantage of you.

    You look worried.
    Mother Gothel.png

    Player! Did I see a gray hair in my reflection? Look at my hair. Is any of it gray?!

    →   No gray hairs.
    Mother Gothel.png

    Oh, what a relief! One must be very careful about one's appearance, you know.

    →  You look great!
    Mother Gothel.png

    That's kind of you to say. Of course it's true, but it's still sweet of you to say it.

    →  How old are you?
    Mother Gothel.png Didn't anyone ever teach you that it's impolite to ask a woman's age?
    Mother Gothel.png And I know you'd never be impolite to me. Isn't that right, dear?
    →  I see a wrinkle.
    Mother Gothel.png


    →   I see one gray hair.
    Mother Gothel.png

    Grrr... I must find Rapunzel quickly. If only she cared about her poor, dear mother.

    →  You're such a good mother.
    Mother Gothel.png

    I am, aren't I? Why ever would Rapunzel run away? She's terribly ungrateful.

    →  You only want her hair.
    Mother Gothel.png What a horrid thing to say! I love my daughter.
    Mother Gothel.png It's the cruelty of the world that wants to take advantage of her gift.
    →   Lots of gray hairs!
    Mother Gothel.png

    No. NO! I'm becoming old and withered!

    →  You look fine.
    Mother Gothel.png Do I? Well. Perhaps for now.
    Mother Gothel.png But this is just the start. After the gray comes the wrinkles.
    Mother Gothel.png I will NOT lose my youthfulness!
    →  There's nothing wrong with getting old.
    Mother Gothel.png Ha! You're almost as deluded as my daughter.
    Mother Gothel.png When you're old, the world discards you. You become... irrelevant. I WILL stay young, no matter the cost!
    →  Yep.
    Mother Gothel.png

    So cruel. When YOU are old, I hope YOU have an unfeeling reprobate who taunts you with it.

    You seem to have a lot on your mind.
    Mother Gothel.png

    Player, good. Let's talk through a purely hypothetical situation.

    Mother Gothel.png

    If you were, say, tracking your wayward daughter through the forest...

    Mother Gothel.png

    How would you convince her to come home?

    →  Ask her nicely.
    Mother Gothel.png Yes, I'll just ask her politely to stop acting out and sit in her tower like a good girl.
    Mother Gothel.png You've obviously never met a teenager.
    →  Trick her.
    Mother Gothel.png

    Well, of course that's my instinct as well. I'm glad you agree, Player.

    →  Let her go.
    Mother Gothel.png

    Never! Rapunzel belongs with me, and NOTHING will ever change that.
