You gave up the option to flee when you tossed aside Fayre.
You're still rather sure that, if needed, you can dash to Fayre's side, pick her up and make a run for it. You've done something like that with smaller things many times in sports. How much harder could it be to pick up and run with Fayre? But you hope that you can solve this without having to flee. You know you can't live the idea of running with your tail between your legs down.
> Do giant snakes tend to be sapient, or at least controllable? If so it could be a useful ally. If not, however, force may be nessesary;
>100% attempt diplomacy. It's not like people will think less of you, if they learn that you're capable of talking to snakes, right? That's a TRUSTWORTHY character trait to have.
Your memory may be foggy, but you think you can recall some HIGHLY RESPECTABLE and TOTALLY TRUSTWORTHY characters having been able to communicate with snakes. Or maybe they weren't? You're not sure. What you ARE sure of is that Alula is going to give you Hell if and when she finds out that your first choice was to try and deal with the GIANT SNAKE peacefully rather than just slaying it. You don't think she knows how to solve problems with anything but through a use of force and fear.
However, you've seen both your other SISTER and ANOTHER PERSON communicate with bigger beasts, so you know its possible. Time to see how well you can copy what you've seen them do.
You hold out your hand to the GIANT SNAKE, offering a soft smile and trying to appear as harmless as you can, as nonthreatening as you can. The snake lowers its head to sniff at your hand, at least you think it does that, you don't know if snakes can actually smell or not.
Orion: Hey there big guy, I'm not here to fight.
Orion: How about we just relax, no need to get worked up here. I'm a friend, see?
You hope this works, it'd be nice if you could actually become friends with the GIANT SNAKE.
Turns out you need to be DISNEY PRINCESS level in the Animal Commune skill tree before the GIANT SNAKE will even bother to listen to you. You didn't even know there was a skill tree for that. At least you were quick enough to not lose a hand.
