Hey all. So, I've written a couple of Meiling-themed short stories in the past and figured why not try my hand at a CYOA? Can't vouch for the overall quality, but no harm in giving it a try, right? I don't think it'll last that long, maybe a thread or so. Also, the format will be pretty much slice-of-life, Meiling's day-to-day experiences as a gate guard at the SDM. Might not be everyone's cup of tea, so just a head's up. Here's where my previous short stories are:

>>/th/162111
>>/th/163853

They're the set-up for this, so if you're curious, please take a look. Well, let's give this a shot.

-----------------------------------------------

Springtime. The grass is turning green, the trees are growing leaves, and Cirno is complaining about the lack of snow and ice. Also, Sakuya is hinting that I should forget the pants and just go with a dress for a while. I could be annoyed, but we just made up, after all, and at least Sakuya's being less blatant about it. Oh well. I guess I don't mind being appreciated, as long as she isn't leering or pressuring me.

Still, what a lovely day! Soon I'll have to get to work on the gardens. I already know what I want to plant, and there are plenty of seeds stored away. I give it three weeks, tops, before the gardens look as gorgeous as ever. Sakuya offered to warp time a little bit to speed things up, but I had to turn her down. There's no point in rushing things, after all. I find the garden to be at its most beautiful when things are just left to happen on their own.

This year, the Mistress wants to to put together a tribute to Reimu. I think she's strying to flirt with the shrine maiden. And by 'I think' what I'm really saying is 'I'm certain beyond a shadow of a doubt.' Fat chance, but that doesn't stop her from trying. Honestly, I kinda suspect it's all just Miss Remilia messing with Reimu. Then again, she does seem

[x] What you normally wear.

To clarify, this is a totally new vote, not a change of mind.
>> No. 55381
Okay, tallying. That's 7 for 'casual' and 5 for 'normal clothing.' 1 anon changed his vote but deleted the original, so that leaves things unchanged. Another anon did not delete his original vote, so that's 6 for casual, and 5 for normal.

Close vote, but calling it for Remi Casual. Which is fine, because I just had an idea regarding that.

Also, holy shit, autosage? I get a second thread?? Then, after writing, update will be posted in a new thread. Should be later today. Probably.

[X] Another you... Could one of the parts that you left around have gained sentience? Or did someone find one and did something with it? Or maybe... another impostor trying to ride on your reputation.

Thread 1: >>53047

Chapter 1 Start.
==========================================================================================

“All right, it’s about time!” Cirno cheers, swooping down towards the lakeshore bordering the mansion. You, Dai, and Sunny follow at a slightly more relaxed pace, Luna hanging back a bit while muttering to herself.

“...But, I never cancelled...”

You tune out Luna’s voice and alight on the shore, looking around. The gate, a few yards away, stretches up to a height perhaps twice your own. That won’t impede entry, though, given that you can, well, fly. Maybe the structure’s just there to look pretty, not like you’re an expert on large pieces of crafted iron.

It’s likely there to keep out humans.
Doubtful, considering just how many Gensokyan humans can fly.

Anyway, that’s not really important. You can better make out the green woman’s feature, now. She’s tall, considerably moreso than you and by proxy your companions, and has vibrantly red hair, several shades more crimson than Sunny’s carrot hue, and extending down either side of her head in two linesbraids, they’re called braids, er, two braids.

You are Patchouli Knowledge, a physically frail and sickly magician of profound aptitude and power. You live in the Voile Archives of the Scarlet Devil Mansion, though you have constructed a tower elsewhere, without internal fixtures as yet, which you may or may not inhabit much. You are Friends with Remilia, the vampire who owns the mansion, who considers it entirely too much effort to try to feed off you. Your Magical Potency varies somewhat from day to day, depending on how long of an incantation you can manage before breaking off into a fit of coughs, and how much strain your body can handle in addition to the rigors of illness. You currently have a box of ninety five vials of Medication stored in the library to offset the worst of the days, however, though it will later exact a toll, and your new Magical Focus eases use of magic to a significant degree. It seems that Luck can play a reasonable part in keeping yourself healthy, though effects may vary, as can the Hakurei Hot Spring.

Your magic is based on Elementalism primarily, though you are also skilled in Diabolism and Other Summonings, which can be surprisingly versatile, particularly in combination with Golems. You can also create Homunculi, if you have the materials to hand. You do not have any suitable samples of the key ingredient, however.

You have just suffered an impressive loss against a shrine maiden, and have been strong-armed into an agreement which is not at all to your favor. Remilia seems terribly amused by the whole spectacle. You are not.

- Might be a good idea to return home and finish work on gifts to the other instructors.
- Maybe also get batteries for some reason (we needed to get those right?)

A few questions, Kahi, if you don't mind them being asked
Is Cosette Evans even still around, living the life of a decadent rich old lady?

Also, how many days are left before term start? 2, 3 or something else?

First story. Had an idea, went with it, so let's see how this goes. I hope to entertain you all.
--------
The first sense that registers is the cold. An overwhelming chill permeates your body with a thousand pinpricks standing out, their source obscured by the darkness. What a strange world this is, dark and full of-

-Oh, wait a second.

You open your eyes.

Black is abruptly replaced with white. White powder above, white ground below, white covering brown trees all around. Snow, you think absently, the word coming to mind unbidden. You wonder briefly at how this happened before dismissing it as unimportant, and sit up.

Snow falls off your body in soft clumps as you look yourself over, gaze flowing over your body and words flowing into your brain. Hands, check, fingers paled by the cold but still functional. Breasts, two of those. Legs, arms, a bit spindly but they'll do. And-

Snow puffs into the back of your neck, and you crane your neck around to gaze at your last two limbs, fluttering involuntarily. Wings. Pale green gossamer constructs, slightly dampened by the snow. A darker green filigree traces out patterns across their surface, as if scribed there. Undoubtedly, these are the raiments of a-

“Fairy.” Your mouth forms around the word, your first, then is forced open again as a current runs through your brain.

Right, Kaguya would seem to be a better fit, good thinking.

As for the sealing issue, I can't think of much that would be capable apart from borderhax. It'd be really cheap if the culprit was just Yukari screwing around again, though. Reimu might be capable, of both sealing and overpowering the two powerful entities.

>What sort of effect could seal two (apparently fairly powerful) people in the form of a newborn fairy? Who could pull that off?

Just throwing out random ideas looking through the Touhou ability list, but:
Assuming the voices were of dead people, Yuyuko's manipulation of departed souls maybe.
Maybe, unlikely, Keine, depending on how far history manipulation could be stretched.
Shikieiki, perhaps, if she could make people be reincarnated as a fairy?
Sanae's miracle manipulation, maybe.
If they were evil spirits, Orin could have done something.
Kogasa: Surprise! You're a fairy! No, that's just too silly.
Nue or Mamizou: We're not actually a fairy, just disguised as one. Directed by M. Night. Shamalama.

That's all I've got. Not counting magic-users, border-users, or PC-98s.

I'd just like to clarify a couple things. First, while a few of you are getting surprisingly close to accuracy on your theorizing (albeit likely not in the ways that you think), there's several parts of the puzzle, so to speak, that you really aren't capable of guessing with the information you have so far, as not everything's entirely supported by canon.

I'm not trying to discourage speculation, quite the opposite, just saying that you might not want to cling too closely to all of the current theories. Some of them you probably should, though.

Second, Yukari is not responsible for your current situation. I don't particularly want to deal with the issue of just how powerful her boundary manipulation is supposed to be, nor do I want to introduce her as a plot device, villain, deus ex machina, manipulator, or similar. I like her fine as a character, I just am lazy and think that her presence can easily overcomplicate stories, so I'm not bothering to write her in. As to where she is at the moment, it's winter. Pic related.

Anyway, I'm finally done consolidating my plans for the SDM, so new thread. >>53972

You do not have any suitable samples of the key ingredient, however, as Koakuma harvested far more than you could probably have used, and it's gone quite off.

Your library is currently playing host to a subterranean spider, an 'ordinary' witch, a pair of male greek giants inhabiting the form of statuary and a young maiden, and a number of confectionary-based life forms, which are the focus of your private experimentations. Some of which are interesting enough that you might keep them, once through. You are currently contemplating Poison and paying visits to certain people. These two items are, as it happens, unrelated.

You spot a familiar miko nearby, talking to a young looking woman with green hair and a rather fancy hat. Choosing a course of action, you make your way over.

As you approach, Reimu notices you and smiles. “And here’s the man of the hour. That was a rather entertaining speech you gave up there.”

“I would have said more, but you know how Remi gets when she’s upstaged.”

The shrine maiden laughs a bit, and your attention turns to the woman she was talking to.

… A shiver runs up your spine. The way she’s looking at you is incredibly… piercing, as though she’s looking into your heart.

“Uhh…”

“The sin of abandoning your loved ones is a heavy one,” she says abruptly. “I would say more, but it looks as though you’re already reflecting on it.” Then she smiles. “It takes great strength of character to admit to your sins and work on redeeming them. I wish more people would do so.”

This conversation just got rather personal. You open your mouth to say as much, but you’re beaten to the punch by Reimu.

[x] Wherever she wants to go.

“I’m fine with anything.”
Following Remilia out of the room, you voice your opinion. Patchouli’s emotionless gaze follows you until the door closes again. As soon as that happens, your hand is released from Remilia’s.

“They say you should not forget your gods. Let us visit them. You got some spare change, right?”
She checks some place in the hem of her dress. Then another one. Just how many pockets does every one of her dresses have?

“No, I don’t have any.”

You've been counting entries as they came. This most recent makes... six. That's the last, with seven mortal men in total.

The chalked circle is long since wiped away and the tome of eldritch lore concealed beneath the couch once more, so there's very little odd to let on that the situation is not as it should be. Save, of course, that the host is the, to all appearances delighted, centerpiece of a grand display of drunken-ness and lust.

This final arrival, however, is unfortunately quite thoroughly sober, and seems to have sufficient scruples that he's not only not joining in to the party, but he's left and he's moving for the door to leave.

That simply won't do.

You rise, setting papers to the side, and slide the lock of the door with a soft click.

"... What are you doing?"

"Oh, you can't go, dear. Not yet. The party has only just begun~" You say, stalking close.

He tries to shove you away and move for the door again, but is surprised to find that your physical prowess is by far superior to that which a human woman of your size and frame could muster. He struggles as you hold him in place and force the Charm on him, attempts to escape growing weaker and more feeble until he settles into compliant silence.

"My poison?" The spider says, after rubbing the last traces of slumber from her eyes. "Well, uhm... I'm immune to it, so I don't know all the details from experience. First, you get... sort of tingly and numb? Then you realize that you're paralyzed and can't move at all while you're being wrapped up in a silk pouch. And after that it's spread through your body and starts melting everything down into a delicious drink, fermenting over a week or so until it's ready... um. Can you imagine a sort of steak slurry, shredded into a thick liquid and cut half and half with beer?"

"... Unfortunately, yes." You admit, stomach protesting the mental image.

"Yeah, it's nothing like that. But that's the closest I can describe it." she says.

"Lethal without treatment, then."

".... I guess." Yamame says, thoughtfully. "I mean... yeah, it probably does kill you. I think. I mean, I've never asked someone if it was the poison or me drinking them that finished them off, and I don't know that they'd answer, but-"

In any case, it doesn't seem that you can just hold the spider in place and milk her glands. Her venom doesn't seem suitable at all.

"Well... that aside, I wonder if you would be interested in participating in lessons."

"Magic isn't really my strong point..." Yamame admits.

Koakuma's recompense: That was... paragraph 898, B-12.... no, that wasn't it. C-12. .... Maybe C-13? No. No, it was 107 X-73, to be... sure? That isn't it either. Well... obviously Koakuma gets something out of the deal. She didn't just get talked around and droned at until she was fed up enough to forget to get some sort of reward for her effort. Right?

Family Tree, summarized: Koakuma sired Cosette upon the Nameless Female Thrall. Cosette thereafter seduced and ensnared a fairly wealthy gentleman by the name of Frederick Evans, and eventually had two children, Lily and Petunia by name. Whether they were his children is ambiguous, but in any case they found themselves in possession of his last name. On the other side of the family, Cepheus Potter finally 'settled down' and retired from the Auror Corps after his wife became involved in a rather traumatic incident which neither of them speak of after. A private healer is brought in, sworn to secrecy, and advises that it is unlikely that children will be conceived at this point. In spite of this appraisal, James is later born of their union, quite the surprise to many parties due to the couple's advanced age. Whether there was some measure of taint clinging to the wife, which incubated and hibernated through the conception of this child, is unknown. The family tree following this is fairly well known, however.

Kirisame: Will lie flippantly, blatantly, and almost pathologically, if it suits her purpose. Does not seem willing to break deals, however. Seems like it might be default behavior she can't escape, as the daughter of a shopkeeper.

You spend a few moments considering how you could mess with this guy. Well, if you were Patchouli, you could just make a homunculi or golem, and kill that, theoretically. Well, it's kind of iffy, though. Golem is probably out, but a homunculi might do it. ... If you had the recipe memorized and could make one of those things basically at will the way she could. Sadly, you're not that magically stupendous, and so... well, you could muddle it together and get one. Might take you a week or three to figure it all out, though. Probably too much time to bother with something like that.

Doesn't stop the whole puppy idea, though. It's just so childishly, endearingly wicked that you're sort of fond of the notion.

Except none of it will work, sadly.

He specified, after all... 'she does not live long enough to publish the thesis she is preparing.' 'Is' preparing. Not 'may prepare' or 'will soon prepare', but the one that she is currently preparing at this very moment. So it doesn't matter what you name 'Miriam Stocker' and have write a thesis, since as they would not be at the moment of this contract's agreement writing a thesis, they would not in any way qualify.

Shame.

Well, there's nothing stopping you from killing a puppy or two, though. You won't get anything or be able to jerk this guy around by doing it, of course. So it would just be for kicks~ And there's still the loophole that 'publishing' is not the same as 'finishing', and all... So, there's that too. And you can just change her name, though even the fastest paperwork will take a few days to complete itself.

"The terms are acceptable, mortal." You agree. "In price, I will take... that girl. And that boy. Have them cleaned." You continue, specifying the youngest of both genders. Ooh, Teach Koakuma has a special lesson waiting for those two~

"Agreed, then. The contract is struck." the summoner says, and the dim glow to the circle fades as he releases it. Aaaah~ You stretch, a little smugly and lazil

You forgot that Ron also told Harry at the end of the 7th book that he mind tricked the DMV into giving him his driver's licence and treated it as fairly funny escapade especially since Ron and or Hermoine (can't remember which) were working for the Aurors at the time so if it was a crime they should know about it.
