Reciprocal Hearts Event

From Tears of Themis Wiki

In the ardent atmosphere of autumn, September ushers in a most special time.
Loving memories rise into a pas de deux with the melody and its resounding chords.
The garden's budding roses whisper the secrets of the heart.
You and him respond to the surprise invitation together—
Happy birthday, Mr. Vyn Richter.

Vyn:
Children of the Stars
(Timed - Event prelude)
Text Message script

You: Dr. Richter, can I ask you something about children with autism?

You: I recently received a case involving such a child, so I want to better understand him.

Vyn: Autism is a type of neurodivergency, and as such children with autism may or may not display some neurodivergent features upon clinical assessment.

Vyn: What makes you believe he may be autistic?

Unwilling to communicate

You: He seems to prefer playing by himself.

You: He also presents his emotions differently, and I'm less experienced at gauging how he's feeling.

Vyn: Hmm, it does sound like you may need to find a more effective way of communicating with him.

Repeated actions

You: He doesn't seem interested in toys or games.

You: He also likes to stare at his toes quite a bit.

Vyn: That might be what we call a restricted, repetitive behavior, which can be an indicator of autism.

Vyn: That said, I can't definitively say without a proper professional consultation.

Vyn: Irrelevant of whether or not he is autistic, I'm sure it would be helpful in the future if you knew more about neurodivergence.

Curable

You: They probably can, right?

You: I really want to do right by this little boy.

Vyn: Then it's good that you have started to learn more now.

Vyn: Education is the number one tool in helping to reduce the stigma around neurodivergence.

Incurable

You: I read that autism isn't something that can be cured...

You: Is there a strong stigma attached to autism?

Vyn: Sadly, yes.

Vyn: It's important to remember that autism is a spectrum, and isn't something to be 'cured.'

Vyn: However, there are some therapies and interventions that can be beneficial.

Treatment results

You: Sounds like you've met quite a few neurodivergent people before.

You: What benefit do these therapies provide?

Vyn: Different therapies suit different people, but benefits can cover areas such as cognitive behavior, joint attention, motor skills, and more.

Intervention methods

You: Really? What kinds of therapies and interventions are there?

You: They really should teach us more about this in school...

Vyn: Of course, therapies are only one part of the approach to autism.

Vyn: It requires the efforts of everyone in society to help reduce the stigma around neurodivergence.

Vyn: Actually, there is an autism advocacy organization in Stellis City. I have worked with them in the past.

Volunteer work details

You: An advocacy organization? What do they usually do?

Vyn: They provide therapy and intervention support, but also work to increase understanding and reduce stigma surrounding autism.

Vyn: They also do research to try and improve the benefit of support services.

Want to be a volunteer

You: How can I be a part of that?

You: That sounds great!

Vyn: Yes, both them and the people they work with are amazing.

Vyn: It's always a privilege to get to work with them.

Vyn: As luck would have it, the association is hosting a fundraising event next weekend. Shall we go together?

Unsure

You: Great! Though I'm not sure how I can help...

You: I'd like to be of some help at the fundraiser!

Vyn: I'm sure there will be some way you can assist.

Vyn: Either way, it will be a great way to learn more.

Very happy to

You: Sure, sounds like a great opportunity.

You: I can't thank you enough, Dr. Richter!

Vyn: No need to thank me. This is something that ought to be done.

Vyn: If you would like, we can make it a thing to go often.

Surprise Invitation
(Timed - Sept 27)
Text Message script

Vyn: I just saw the course evaluation forms you brought. It is the right amount.

Vyn: Great work. This means that the evaluation for both subjects are complete.

Complete

You: That's great! Mission accomplished!

You: Dr. Richter, I make a pretty good teaching assistant, don't I?

Vyn: Yes. A very splendid one.

Unsatisfied

You: The evaluations ended so quickly. I was looking forward to doing more.

You: This evaluation has really taught me a lot.

Vyn: I see. I will invite you again if the opportunity arises.

Vyn: After all, your work means a lot to me.

Vyn: Is there anything I can do for you in return for your hard work?

I'll take you somewhere

You: I do have a small request.

You: I want to show you something when we get back to the school later!

You: You have to agree to it!

Keep it a secret

You: Hmm... I do have a small request.

You: But... I'd like to keep it a secret for now.

You: You'll find out once we get to the school!

Vyn: All right. You have my word.

Vyn: But, can you give me a small hint just to satisfy my curiosity?

No

You: Not yet.

You: It's worth the wait!

You: It's a deal then, Dr. Richter. I'll see you there.

It's a surprise

You: Alright. Just a small one!

You: It's a surprise. Just wait and see.

You: I'll see you there, Dr. Richter!

Vyn: Do not worry. I will never miss an invitation from you.

Vyn: If possible... I wish to see you sooner.

Reciprocal Hearts
(After reading "Birthday Celebration")
Voice Call script

Vyn: Hello. It is me, Vyn.

Vyn: You have not forgotten anything. I just wanted to call you.

Vyn: Thank you for these past few days. I felt... very happy.

Vyn: I never thought that birthdays could be spent like this.

Vyn: In the future, please speak your heart and be more open with me.

Vyn: My likes and dislikes... I will tell you anything you want to know.

Vyn: Besides, I have always wanted to know your preferences as well.

Vyn: For example, what kind of plants you like, what flavor of dessert you like, or anything else that interests you.

Vyn: I really want to know more about you.

Vyn: This way, I can also prepare surprises for you on the days that are important to you.

Vyn: I want to make a promise with you...

Vyn: Let us spend the special occasions together, be it this year, next year, or even further into the future.

Vyn: You do not have to give me an answer right now... Think of it as my vow to you.

Vyn: I will always be there for you whenever you are willing to respond.
