"Uck, neither. Spare me, and dear God, make it a bottle of beer, I beg of you."

Desconatta (Des - coh - nah - tah) is the pairing between Jean Descole and Nicole Sonatta (Desc/ole, S/onatta). This is a fanfictionous pairing from the Jeanne Descole trilogy, and was created by DetectiveLayton92. This couple is currently gaining popularity on the Layton OCs Wiki.

Relationship DynamicEdit

Nicole Sonatta first met Descole when he 'kidnapped' her, about a year after she was shot with a sniper rifle. Descole wanted her to teach him all that she knew in various subjects, such as martial arts and weaponry, solely to benefit him. He also said that she would receive room and board, staying with him in his mansion, and also a monthly paycheck. Nicole accepted, and over the course of the next few months, taught him all she knew.

But, Nicole realised that it was hard enough to work with Descole and not develop feelings toward him, let alone live in the same household. The two became a couple, inevitably.

However, Nicole eventually caught a fatal case of pneumonia, and the symptoms were too much for her to handle. She unfortunately died, leaving Descole angered, confused, and broken-hearted.

Spoken MomentsEdit

"You blew the place up?!?!"

"Oh, not the whole building -- only part of it. A bit of C4 did the trick."

"Wow, you've got some tricks up your sleeve even I haven't seen yet!"

"You told me not to be seen by the outside world, so I haven't left the house! No phone calls, no nuthin'!"

"That's a double negative."

"Ok, then, 'I didn't do anything!' "

"Oh, alright. I believe you."


"It seems my work here is finished. I--I love you."

"I love you, too."

"Chardonnay, or are you more of a champagne girl?"

"Uck, neither. Spare me, and dear God, make it a bottle of beer, I beg of you."

"You don't drink Dom Pérignon, either?"

"It's an acquired taste, but I can handle tequila pretty well, though. Yes, you heard me right. I can shoot pretty much anything. Now hand me over a Carling before I slap you."

"Aww, you have a little crush on me, now don't you?"

"I wouldn't call it that..."

"I KNEW IT! Me and Raymond were takin' bets on when you'd finally 'fess up!"

"But you also need to swear to me that you'll keep my identity private, and I'll return the favour."

"I'm sworn to secrecy, but since we're on the track of promises, I need something from you, too."

"Go on."

"Promise me you'll never leave me, and...and that we'll take this slow."

"That is one I'm sure to never break."

"I really don't know what came over me. And I must have been absolutely wasted, because I remember waking up with a headache and a sense of nausea."

"That's what happens when you're drunk and left in a room alone with me, dear."

"So much for taking things slow."

"I like it better this way."

"So do I."

"Next time, we'll both have to try not to drink so much."

"Next time...?"
