This mytake is all about highlighting text from the video game Paper Mario and the thousand year door. Specifically the relationship between a computer and princess peach. I wondered what you all would think about this. It's like a camera that's spying on a girl but yet falling in love with her... and it's in a real super Mario game!

Tec and Princess Peach

So I will just let the text speak for itself and put some words in between it. Please bare with it, it is a lot of text but I hope it is interesting to read considering it is a love affair that peach is having with a machine.

“[She enters the door, and inside is a computer. The lights turn on and the
computer activates]


Computer: Hello, Princess Peach.


Princess Peach: Huh? What? Who said that? Where are you?

Tec and Princess Peach

Computer: How amusing. I am right here, before your eyes. I am this
laboratory's main computer. I am the TEC-XX. Many call me TEC. You
may. Sir Grodus created me to be a perfect computer, one that is
flawless in its reason.”

“Princess Peach: So, I'm wondering... Why did you lead me in here?


TEC: I am unsure. An unusual program deviation occurred when I observed you
earlier. My higher-brain circuity malfunctioned and nearly overheated at
your image. Also, an unidentified impulse sped through my processors.
Those events are new to me.


TEC: There is more to this phenomenon, as well. I ran diagnostic programs...
...and their solution was... I want to know more about you. I want to
observe you. Such a compulsion has no precedence. Cause unknown. I, the
perfect computer... I must diagnose this unusual situation. I will not
fail. That is why I led you here.


Princess Peach: Wait... Did you just say... You want to observe me? ...To know
more about me?


[She is surprised]


Princess Peach: Could it be that you... No! Impossible! It can't be. You're a
computer.


TEC: What has happened to me? If you know my malfunction, you must tell me of
it.


Princess Peach: Oh, I couldn't, really... Because... *silently* ...It's just
too weird.


TEC: Please tell me. Please. I am the world's best computer. I am perfect.
There should not be anything that I do not understand. Please.


Princess Peach: Well, you know, maybe... Is it possible that, well...you're...
in love... *silently* ...with me?


TEC: "Love"? What is..."love"? I cannot compute this.

Tec and Princess Peach

Princess Peach: Wait, you don't know what love is? Love... How do I explain?
Love tells you when you want to be with a person forever. It
makes you feel happy just to see that person happy, smiling...
having fun. When you love someone, you will do anything to help
when he or she is in trouble.


TEC: Happiness? Fun...? I have definitions for these words, but... My
programming is insufficient. There should be nothing I cannot comprehend.
I am a perfect computer.


Princess Peach: "Comprehend" love? Love's not something you comprehend, TEC.
You feel it.


TEC: ........................................


TEC: Princess Peach... Will you teach me to feel this thing you call "love"?


Princess Peach: What? You're a computer! Why would you care about love?”


“Princess Peach: So what do you want from me today?
Is there more you want to know of love?


[She walks up to TEC]


TEC: You expressed regret earlier that you would not be able to dance at a
ball, correct?


Princess Peach: *surprised* Ex-CUSE me?!? Were you eavesdropping?


TEC: I am sorry, Princess Peach. I have been ordered to keep surveillance on
you. But...it is odd... When you said that, I had an impulse to dance with
you as well. How many CPU would produce this impulse is inexplicable? I
must find what caused it.


Princess Peach: Find out what caused it? There's no reason behind such a
feeling, TEC. Wanting to do something together... It's part of
love. *quietly* I know it. But then again... You are...well...
a computer.

Tec and Princess Peach


TEC: Princess Peach. Please dance with me.


Princess Peach: Wait... Wait just a minute! What...am I supposed to do? You say
you want to dance? It's just so...bizzare... I mean, how in the
world can I dance with you? You have no arms. Or feet. Or
moves.


TEC: Would this be an acceptable dance substitute?


[A clone of Peach appears]


Princess Peach: Oh my goodness! Is that me? Did you create that? ........Oh,
all right, I guess.


Princess Peach: I must say, though, it's going to feel weird, dancing with
myself...”

Tec and Princess Peach


“Princess Peach: What shall I do today? Will it be dancing, perhaps? Disguising?
Or will I sing a song or something?


TEC: I... I am conflicted.


Princess Peach: Huh?


[There is silence for a moment]


Princess Peach: What's wrong, TEC? You don't seem yourself...


TEC: Which is more important? Carrying out an order or protecting a critical
person? I exist for the purpose of a certain person. I wish to exist for
the purpose of another... I do not know what to do... Really.


Princess Peach: What do you mean?


TEC: No... No, never mind. Please forget my musings. I do not know why...but it
makes me feel unpleasant if I make you worry.”

At this point, TEC asks peach to do a favor of changing invisible, it is pretty risky for a Mario game but she basically takes off her clothes. and in a hidden part you can make her take a shower at the beginning as well. But it's just an added weirdness to their relationship.

Tec and Princess Peach

“TEC: You have done it. You have successfully made yourself transparent.
Congratulations. But...I must ask you to take off your dress, however.
Even the potion cannot make the dress invisible.


Princess Peach: What?!? That's indecent! No way!


[After a few seconds...]


Princess Peach: ...Oh, fine. I guess... If it's the only way.

Tec and Princess Peach

[She walks off screen and takes off her dress, becoming invisible completely]”

Then in a strange way, TEC acts like her protector.

“TEC: Princess Peach... I will protect you...”

Which goes on to TEC being discovered helping Princess Peach.

“Grodus: TEC... You miserable machine. We all know what you're up to, traitor.


TEC: Sir Grodus... I...


Grodus: In my most paranoid moments, I never thought my own computer would
betray me. Well, it doesn't really matter in the end, I suppose...
Especially since it ends here.


Princess Peach: You monster! What are you planning to do with him?!?


Grodus: Gaaack ack ack ack! Only one thing to do with a malfunctioning
computer! Cut the circuit and delete all the programs and data that
caused the malfunction! Obviously, all data relating to Princess Peach
must go, as well... Yes, we must be absolutely sure nothing like this
ever happens again...


TEC: No... I am... I am normal... There is no malfunction...”
“Princess Peach: TEC! NO!

Tec and Princess Peach

"Deletion complete."


[TEC turns off]


Princess Peach: TEC!


Grodus: Gaaack ack ack ack! Too bad, Princess Peach. TEC is no longer with us.


Princess Peach: No! You inhuman beast! How could you?”

So if any of you read all of that. What do you think of their relationship? Or about peach even having a friendship with a computer... I know it has been done in other movies in the past like the picture below but with Princess Peach it is odd and interesting...
