if you fail a side quest, can you ever redo it? (fournival related)

so i was supposed to babysit symone for me, and while i was following her, she tripped and fell, and I don't know why, but I decided to grab her, causing her to run away from and getting me arrested, which obviously led to a quest failure.

so i was wondering, will I ever be able to redo it at some point? like after sleeping for a couple days?

I'm 95% sure you cannot retry a failed quest.

During the hide and seek part I thought she might have been in the sewers so I accidently went to the prison cell area and it counted as a quest fail for leaving the area ):

Yes, I'm pretty sure once a quest is failed there is no chance to redo it. That auto-save function can be very frustrating. I failed the chasing in the shadows quest because I got too close to the guy twice and then it auto saved my game. So, now I don't think I can complete the gold idol quest and will miss out on some good weapons.

I swear, I really do hate that you can't redo a failed quest. I failed the one with Mercedes where I had to escort her through this cave but she died during a fight and it said quest failed. I exited to the dashboard, cut it on this morning and realized it auto saved -_-

I wouldn't worry too much if you miss out on the gold idol. The few weapons that are unlocked exclusively by the gold one are nice, sure, but also quite expensive and not leagues better than ones you'll unlock for turning in the silver idol.
