In my no love playthrough I started off by telling off Astarian when he pulled the knife and made it clear that a simple 'sorry' wouldn't suffice. I also agreed to help the grove and did most thins he disliked except tell auntie ethel about the tadpole.
"It's not you darling, it's me. *I* have standards."
I told LZ to stop intimidating the good folk of Faerun. She did think I was hawt but was still pissed that I didn't let her browbeat the commoners. Wyll was happy with me but in love with his tankard and SH found herself to be the most interesting person at the party.
