It has now been almost a year since I've been able to write anything. Flea, shorts, SotUY again, or my own projects; I've not been able to write more than a few words of any of them.
At least once a week since my last update, I've sat down and opened Word and tried to continue the story. I'd then spend half an hour glancing at the page, writing a few words, then deleting them, and closing Word out of frustration. I've rewritten the current update dozens of times by now, but I still can't even get any more than halfway through it.

That brings me here. There's enough stories that haven't finished, and left people wondering what the author's plans were, and where the story was going. I don't want people to never know that about Flea.

So, now I'm asking you to vote once again, my patient readers. The one thing I can still do for you is to give you a rundown of the rest of the plot, the backstories and motivations of the characters, the endings, and answer whatever other questions are left.

Do you want it?

Because unless a story pays some measure of respect to canon, then it's basically original fiction with a bunch of OCs. Then again, most Touhou fans are only fans as far as IOSYS, stupid gags, and often wangsty yuri doujins go.

As a character, he was likable and someone we wanted to see do well. As far as a avatar, he was a believable sort.

I liked him overall, and he served his purpose well. He and Cirno bounced off eachother really well. Same with Sakuya for the most part, though I would have liked to have seen that play out a bit more before the plot punched him in the face. Other than that, its been so long since I read the story I can't really give any deeper criticism. Though I will say that I did find it incredibly unbelievable that he would choose vampirism that easily. It honestly ruined the character for me. I still regret not being around a computer when voting for that choice was going on, because I would have voted against it, and tried to urge others to do the same. Oh well.

Get that shit back to Pooshlmer. I swear to God, the first time someone starts lobbing around the word "secondary" here I will murder an orphanage full of puppies.

>>47950

I liked him. Mind you, I'm usually pretty ambivalent to characters that start out as basically a stand-in for Anon, but he grew on me as he developed, mostly courtesy (as a lot of people have mentioned) of his interactions with Cirno. I actually cared when he turned into a vampire (best set of choices/updates in the entire story, btw) and even worried for his life a bit.

Honestly, though, the character I cared for the most was Sakuya. Once we got her backstory all her actions started making a lot more sense, I guess. I wish she'd gotten more development.

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 it seems like a temporary relocation is in your near future. 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 two vials of Medication 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, and you have a good feeling about your recent use of 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 recall that you used to be able to make Homunculi, but will have to refresh your memory on the exact details of 'how' before you can do so again.

Recently, you have spent much of a pleasant day with Tewi, who seems to have extensive less-than-legal connections Outside the Barrier. She paid for your food and bought you clothes, as well as arranging a Business Transaction with the Yakuza then later, after tormenting a young man with what seems to be more money than sense, enjoyed a soak with you, Suika, and Reimu in the Hakurei Hot Spring. You are uncertain of her exact intentions regarding you.

Upon returning to the mansion, however, you discovered that Marisa had paid a visit, and helped herself to your newest books. You decided you had had enough of that. Shortly thereafter, you started a fight with Marisa, involving a number of golems, two fairly large ones, and the summoned spirits of two Ancient Greek Giants. They still currently inhabit th

Your magic is based on Elementalism primarily, though you are also skilled in Diabolism and Other Summonings. You tend towards the former over any of the latter, however. You are once more fully fluent in the construction of Golems, though Homunculi remain out of your grasp until you review your tomes again.

In the past few days, you have made a decision on a Coursebook, followed by a long talk with Albus, in which you expressed your distaste for the offered accommodations, and then finally delivered Alistair to his home, where you laid a beneficial enchantment on his garden. You met with Tewi, twice, and it appears she is taking some manner of interest in you. Currently, she is accompanying you about your day, and thus far you have collected a spider and chastised a farmer and rabbit.

Eirin is now standing nearby. She seems annoyed.

And here we are once more. Let's see what we have this time... Hm, there doesn't seem to be much, most is self explanatory. Well, there's still some.

Voile Archive Entrances- To this, the exact number is sort of variable, aside from the main entry to the rest of the mansion, and the only firm answer that can be given is 'enough'. Unless Marisa shows up. Then it's 'entirely too many', even if that's the only one available at the time.

Hot Springs- You actually feel a little refreshed from this. Which is unusual, because hot water normally has hardly any effect on you, and you have tried hot springs before, to equally little effect. Possibly there's some odd effect from the source of the spring's heat. You feel you might be a little healthier than you normally would, tomorrow. Of course, if you intend to use the spring regularly, you suppose you will have to either become very friendly with the shrine maiden, or be ready to start paying for the privilege, once she catches on to your interests.

The Shrine- This is the interesting one. Where normally things are either 'inside' or 'outside' the Barrier, the Hakurei Shrine is, at the same time, both. And equally, neither. To draw a parallel: there is a house and a lawn. If the front door is opened, and you step into it and stop, without passing all the way through, where are you? You aren't inside the house. At the same time, you aren't quite outside either. This is, putting it simplistically and crudely, how the shrine works: the 'door' between inside and outside. If you don't intend to damage the Barrier, you should be sure to at least have cleared the base of the steps to the shrine before making any portals.

Geas- You don't know how to make one of these, offhand, as you aren't interested in the spell. In addition, no physical contact is necessary at all for such things, as you recall, and so mutilation, permanent for humans, would be considered quite an extreme retaliation and possibly leave her with a reasonably legitimate grievance to bring to bear against you with the Shrin

Your magic is based on Elementalism primarily, though you are also skilled in Diabolism and Other Summonings. You tend towards the former over any of the latter, however. You at one point were known to craft Golems, and dimly recall the construction of Homunculi, though you are no longer immediately familiar with either pursuit. Should you decide to begin making either, again, you will first have to refresh your memory, as with many other magics, by looking things up in your Gigantic Library.

Recently, you have spoken with and negotiated an equitable exchange with Albus Dumbledore, which involves you Teaching. Following this, you visited a place to acquire Suitable reference material in preparation to decide which, if any, to demand your pupils buy. In the process, you encountered, gained interest, and then almost immediately lost interest in a Werewolf, named Alistair, with a Typically Tragic Past. In the end, you hired him as your tour guide. During your excursion you purchased a number of books and sent them back, before having a wand crafted by Ollivander, out of personal curiosity. Its creation was not a simple matter, but you cheated fairly and provided an item which made everything go much more smoothly. After this, you

Hm. Delays, massive ones at that. I need to visit that damn doctor.
Perhaps, an extra scene to compensate..?

Running from a bunch of fireflies. Probably not -the- most humiliating episode in my career as a destroyer of all things monstrous and unholy, but somewhere up there in the top ten. Probably. Still, I wasn't stupid enough to disregard the words of someone more experienced with the local wildlife than myself; looks can be deceiving, and all that sort of stuff.

"...Youki..."

"I overheard your conversation." Calm and cool as always, Youki revealed that he had been listening in on us while keeping his senses honed, eyes and ears keeping track of the insects' movements. I felt slightly envious.
"We are not completely surrounded just yet. If we are not to stay and fight, we should flee immediately."

Well, with that last fiasco it doesn't look like I'll be getting any more votes for the time being. As a reader has let me know that the choices given sucked in the sense that they didn't do the final scene justice, I'm inclined to go for the write-in to break the tie.

I still think you can delete it and rewrite, on a new thread. References like this are very easily to catch on and somehow prevent me from enjoying the fight. A clash of ideologies is good and all, but not the best part for... tributes. Much less 3 on a row. Just use your style.

[X] She hasn't directly asked you, so no.
- [X] "...should I wait outside for a bit?"

You're not going to make a move on her unless she makes a direct proposition to you, though even in that circumstance you're going to be sure you're not going to cause a problem. You simply close up the book and set it aside, standing from your seat.

“Should I step out for a bit?” you ask, motioning towards the door. Flandre's smile widens as she begins to remove her top.

“If you would be so kind,” she says, running her thumbs into the waistband of her skirt. You make your way to the door as Flandre undresses, making your exit by the time she's already down to just her underwear bottoms. She giggles as you take a final look before you close the door. She's got the same small body type as her sister apparently has, a frame befitting her apparent age, and breasts enough to fit inside the palm of your hand. Not to bad at all. It's a nice mental image to have in mind as you're standing in the dim light outside the room. Some light moaning begins not too long after you've left the room, and you realize that if you stick around, it's just going to cause problems for your own body.

You walk away from the door, heading further into the basement to look around some and pass time while Flandre takes care of her business. You see a corner up ahead, and some more faint light from around the bend. Rounding the corner, you find a few small candles on a table near a door, and another door with light seeping through the cracks farther up ahead on the opposite wall. You decide to take a look at the first room, and reach to the door. As you touch the handle, a Sigil appears on the door, and you pause for a moment trying to process it, but it fades away again quickly. All you were able to determine was that it was some kind of Water and Air effect, judging by the symbols. You open the door anyway, figuring that you'll probably find out what the spell does through seeing whatever effects it has. Inside, the room is unnaturally cold, even compared to the already cool atmosphere of the basement area in the first

Pain...I could finally feel pain, just like a real person. The large shard of glass piercing my chest produces a warm stinging sensation. At the same time a cold chill started to creep over me and I knew it for what it was, the soothing hand of death. I do not have the strength to thank the kind woman for this gift so the most I can do is use the last of my waning energy to smile. I hope she finds what she is looking for. With that everything fades to black for a time. Suddenly I hear a far off voice and feel the sensation of falling. It ends quickly and surprisingly gently. My vision returned to me and was surprised to find I was not at the castle.

After six months, 99 A4's and 36797 words.
Thread two.
And a new name.

---

One of your knives is on your table. You reach out and grab it. The polished metal feels cool under your fingers. Well made. The knife, that is. Great balance. Sharp, but not too sharp. It also has this sturdy feeling to it. Given to you by Sakuya. The same person who told you to learn how to protect yourself. Why didn’t she just teach you herself? Hm. She probably didn’t want to force you to spend time with her. Or maybe she wanted you to decide how you want to fight? You decide to ask her to teach you nevertheless.

She wasn’t in her room. Not that you were expecting her to be, but it was worth checking. Probably. The abnormal silence of the Mansion causes you to doubt yourself. Why was it that you even checked her room? Why are you even asking such stupid questions form yourself? Why are you even here? Why are you?

The hell just happened? All you can remember is that you sat down to think about some philosophical question. It must’ve been like, 30 minutes or something. You were about to reach some sort of a conclusion as someone poked you.
“What are you doing?”
Sakuya is right in front of you. You were looking for her when that, whatever it was, happened.
“I’m looking for you, actually.”
The maid raises her eyebrow.

I began writing today, but due to certain circumstances I can write only when:
a) I'm At work
b) There isn't anything else to do.
While it may seem like "never" to some of you, it is actually quite often, since I did two months' worth of work in three weeks, and now my boss can't always come up with anything that I could do. I'm not sure how long this situation will last.

You’re a dead man. But….

If you’re going to die, you might as well go out in a blaze of glory, staying true to your beliefs.

Maintaining the falsetto, you continue, “That is not all. You are all behaving in a manner unfit for members of a noble house. Come with me, so that I may rectify it. The murder can wait, manners come first.”

Dead silence. Then, an indignant snort comes from behind you. “My voice does not sound like that.”

You smile in spite of the peril. “But you’re not denying the content, are you?”

A small hand shoves you aside rather roughly. “Out of the way, you oaf,” says Remilia. “Let me show you how this game is really played. And as your punishment… you get to be the corpse.”

“In real life or the game?”

“Both.”
