On Beach Day, Dylas carefully maintains his fair complexion with a lacy parasol. It is truly an accessory no horse should go without.
Simon: What is it? You look like you want something.
Athena: Huh?! Oh! It’s nothing….

All the villagers say pretty generic “congratulations you’re pregnant” lines but Leon here has a pretty Arthur-specific line.
[snipped prev discussion]
That’s kind of what I love about the both of them. Leon is so… He talks the talk and probably could walk the walk, but underneath he’s so lonely and insecure and it gets to a point where he’s not afraid to show it with you, and that absolutely drives me nuts. I can’t handle it! I just need to hug him! He’s not averse to the idea of intimacy but his past is still very present, and he’s far too much a man of his word to admit the strength of his temptation even to himself because of his promise.
And then there’s Arthur. Arthur who is also very insecure but has this very strong streak of mischievousness, who enjoys the very physical pleasures, I’m pretty sure he’s a Taurus in spite of his birthday, but he’s also very conflicted because, well as he put it in one of the fics I’m writing, “and you’re not a courtesan.” He doesn’t want to treat you the way he wants to treat you. Until after you’re married anyway… He’s caught between his own innate nobility, pun intended, and his very human nature. And that’s oddly seductive.
What a coincidence, that pixiv comic covered a lot of these things you mention. Let me try to recall it from memory (it may be inaccurate since I didn’t do a careful translation of it):
The guys are having a pajama party. Leon is holding court regaling them with tales of What Women Want and 38526 Ways to Make Them [insert word of your choice]. Arthur is quiet and off in the corner, so someone (Kiel?) asks him about his experience. Arthur diffidently replies along the lines of “Oh, I only had the normal kinds of experiences with the palace courtesans. I’m sure Leon knows a lot more about the advanced techniques.” Leon internally freaks out, thinking “shit I’m actually a virgin how come the nerd has more experience than me shit shit can’t get caught out gotta change topic FAST”.
It’s played for laughs, and at first my reaction was “that’s funny but I don’t know that I agree with this characterization” but now…
It’s such a shame the artist pulled all her fanart off pixiv. Some of her RF4 stuff is still on [the deep deep recesses of] her twitter account so I could ask least leave a link to one of her comics I translated before, but not this particular comic, alas.

I’m restarting this discussion so it’s not so unwieldy~
It was worth waiting to reblog this…
Arthur is far and away the perviest of the marriage candidates, I think. Not that it’s necessarily a bad thing; as much as I love my first three choices, he’s a very close fourth and actually my first choice for a smutty-type scene…
No kidding. I find it amusing that everybody is too busy fangirling(boying?) over Leon to notice Megane-kun’s good points. I mean, look how he wooes Frey! It’s just, amg. He’s totally wolf in sheep’s disguise. <3 And let’s face truth: we love it.
It’s a little funny how Arthur is wolf-in-sheep and Leon is kinda sheep-in-wolf, if you think about it…
There was a pixiv comic that sorta touched on this that I’ve been thinking about translating for a while now. When I first came across it lo many months ago I thought it was amusing but OOC…but the more I learned about the characters the more accurate it started to feel.
edit: it’s not a bad thing, not at all…I’m quite the unabashed pervert, apparently.
edit edit: that comic has been removed from pixiv…orz
