Natsuki declined it saying she got it, Monika peeks into the closet where Natsuki was stashing all of her manga since she was curious. Monika tells her that the top shelf was empty but since Natsuki's height wasn't enough to reach the top shelf, she couldn't put all of her mangas on the top shelf. Natsuki of course tells her she couldn't because of her height and telling that it would be so inconvenient.
With Sayori and Yuri finally coming, the four decided to go over some potential club activities, while having some ideas what to do. Monika asks Natsuki again if she is sure that she doesn't have any other literature interests so she could share with the club, telling that she doesn't really mind if she keep her manga in here. Monika was about to say something until Natsuki cuts her words off, Natsuki tells that it was obvious that she wasn't needed in the club, into which. Natsuki lefts the room, leaving to Sayori running after her.
With Natsuki and Sayori, Natsuki wondered why Monika was a jerk, telling that she should be grateful that she joined her "stupid" club, Sayori tells Natsuki that Monika was really nice, telling that she cares a lot about everyone in the club being happy. Natsuki didn't believe that statement, so Sayori tells her usually since Monika did felt less relaxed ever since she joined the club so.
The next day comes, starting on Monika. Monika decided to find Natsuki, having the fear that she might avoid coming to the club. After some time, she finally finds her. Though she saw Natsuki with some of her friends who she doesn't know, she tried to listen to their conversation. Hearing their conversation, Natsuki's friends were being mean to her, so Monika felt bad for Natsuki, not being able to defend her, she knew that she was being awful to her.
Monika then heads back to the clubroom, seeing Yuri. Monika decided to talk to Yuri, Monika tells that Natsuki has kind of blunt attitude and made her feel like she wasn't taking the club seriously. Until her friends were being mean to her, she felt bad for her. Sayori then bursts through the door and tells she's having an intervention, it was about Natsuki. Though Monika was just talking about it with Yuri, she apologized telling she was just talking about it with Yuri. They then decided to have a plan.
The next day comes abide with Monika and Yuri being the first to arrive, and then finally Sayori and Natsuki. Monika then started an activity and yet, it was all about Manga literature.

Monika tells that she thinks she deserves to share the joy along with everybody else.
A week has passed since Natsuki was able to finally return to the Literature Club, Monika approaches Natsuki on the way out. Monika asks if she's in a hurry, Natsuki said no and asks why. Monika tells her that she wanted to show something, if she had a few minutes. Natsuki said sure so Monika asks her to follow to the music room.

Natsuki tells Monika that she has good taste. Though Monika tells her just one volume and she just picked it up randomly.

And so, Monika then walks up to the piano and sits down. Within that, she finally starts playing the piano, when finishing playing the piano, Natsuki compliments her saying that was so good. Monika though thought it wasn't but Natsuki told her that she was already like a pro at it.
The ship sailed because of Natsuki's and Monika's opposite personalities, Natsuki being a Tsundere, while Monika is a Yandere and is from outside nearly perfect. Some people see it more like a sister-sister relationship, though the ship is more popular as femslash ship. For some fans of the ship it helped, that Monika is heavily implied to be pansexual, because of her being attracted to the player, not the "MC". Though Natsuki's sexuality isn't known.
