You were PLATONICALLY distracted by the absolutely stunning hair Aradia has.
Its like ropes that always PLATONICALLY tug your heartstring.
Or better yet, Nepeta, pounce on Kanaya, thus changing the subject.
Actually... I also think we should be Aradia.
Changing the subject is only marginally better. It's still fundamentally dishonest, with us shying away from being caught in what I assume many of us thought as a white lie. If she doesn't have a good reason why she said what she did, then she lied. Dodging the topic wouldn't change the facts, so doing it dooms Kanaya to greasy player territory.
That's my understanding of the situation, anyway.
EDIT: Everyone keeps saying "hand on pants." She's wearing a skirt?

Not Kanaya attempting to switch the topic but the tpic simply gets distracted by a attacking catgirl.
And this is kanaya, she actually did completly forget the scar in lie of fashion.
Its really not hard to believe that she spent so long noticing the hair infront of the scar that she didnt notice the scar itself or did but mentally marked it off as unimportant.
People tend to notice like four physical traits about a person and focus on those.
Thats why disguises work.
I can say this with pure honesty because basic physical traits like someone growing a goatee and later shaving it can go unnoticed by me for MONTHS.
Kanaya only met Aradia in one day.
This is hardly a stretch of the imagination.
whoa im having some serious deja vu reading these posts but whatever i hope we get some resolution soon
>feferi: whats keeping kanaya so long? might as well have a look
id just assume use eloquence because at this point no matter what LP chooses for a command someone will disagree and want a do over and this is the best way of keeping everyone happy atleast
if it doesn't work then we have 10 pages or so of commands we can try from the last thread into this one too
I suppose it could be possible for some people to miss the scar in the way you suggest, but I have difficulty imagining it. The scar is quite noticeable, although it does not make her any less attractive. Furthermore, someone who has intelligence and social intelligence as high as Kanaya's is probably going to notice these things; especially because she is into fashion, where natural features probably play a role.
Edit: I'm not saying the fashion crisis didn't affect her perception, by the way. It's just the idea that she NEVER noticed the scar that seems bizarre to me.

if you want to be really technical kanaya admits to noticing the scar the first time we talk to aradia (not to her but she mentions it in her own head) so saying anything other than we noticed it is a lie and our karma meter might go down (might stay the same though because it could be considered a good lie)
what im worried about is admitting the lie will make her mad no matter how much we sugar coat it because of her history with liars, so either we confess our lie and be so eloquent and kind that she can't stay mad or distraction
Edit: partly this goes back to my dislike of Kanaya wearing a mask. If she did something bad, then she should be open about it and try to redeem herself. This business of lying to your friends so they don't get mad at you is making me feel gross. Better still is if she didn't do the bad thing like I said.

Can't we just say she ELOQUENCE's herself out of this instead of trying to put words in her mouth or manipulating the situation in any way? lP has explicitly said that this adventure is meant to be silly as fuck, why are we being so god damned serious about it?
Kanaya: Utilize your ELOQUENCE stat to apologize.
Or something. I don't really know. I just don't like how the discussion has gone all text-block about self-esteem and noticing things and shit. Can't we all just agree to get along, sit back, and enjoy the lesbians?
DANI IS THE COOLEST AND SO IS CANDY CORN
http://www.mspaforums.com/showthread.php?46270-HeartStuck-4-%28-There-Can-Be-No-Hentai-%29/page93 Kanaya doesn't actually say whether she ever noticed the scar. It's entirely possible she is surprised by the scar now only because she accepted it, like The Mather said. I personally don't like white lies, but even if you do, Aradia won't like it.
Guys, it's more important not to be a dick than not to be seen as a dick. I mean, come on.
DD : I think this is important. I think the adventure is hilarious, but without good characterization I wouldn't enjoy it. The lesbians aren't enough. If you don't like discussions over matters of characterization, couldn't you just skip over them? Besides, just using ELOQUENCE to get yourself out of every situation without addressing whether your actions were wrong or right, or taking peoples' feelings into consideration, is kind of terrible? Being charismatic is entirely separate from being a good friend.
EDIT: I am a person with opinions. I tend to express them. I don't get angry over this shit, and I'm sorry if I ever sound it. If I'm too forceful, just tell me.

Eh, we suggested enough at this point, we probbably are going to wind up being John or something anyway.
http://mspfanventures.com/?s=518&p=31 what im trying to say is she noticed the scar before http://mspfanventures.com/?s=518&p=391
so saying oh wow i just noticed the scar was a white lie like telling a woman her haircut looks good when it doesn't
the only difference is we put ourselves in a position where we made a obvious lie to a person who absolutely hates liars
yes i do agree that telling kanaya to use eloquence all the time is bad but we have only done it once or twice before this and i would rather do that than try the 100 suggestions we have made before this
this is my last response to this im honestly tired of trying to explain myself and would rather wait until a update or to 2'nd someone's suggesgion
SCREW THE PARTY I WANNA GO BACK TO SUFFERER SUBPLOT OR FLASHBACKS OF ARADIA.
OR MORE RAP BATTLES.
