Moot hating freedom. Also the fact that WuiG drowned everything else out.

>What's the point of /coriander?
>Why is /blue/ called "blue," anyways?

Shadowy conspiracy on IRC. Admins and a select few were acting on prophecy. I'd tell you more but I swore a blood oath that outsiders must never know the truth about the incident. No one remembers the fact that they were originally three either.

Yeah, well WUiG became this sprawling CYOA that upset the delicate (Read "autistic") balance of /jp/ and moot went all faggot and banned GM. Thus THP came about to fill the void for lolis and fanfiction.

Honestly in stories not a lot of effort was put into Reisen often making her basically sort of bland "useless bunny/tewi prank bait" compared to Eirin (Hot older doctor) or Kaguya (The woman whom the picture of japanese beauty is based off of). Of course most writers tend to favor those two.

That is for /eientei/ stories for more general stories she has it harder as she risk being overshadowed by the super popular characters such as the SDM (maybe except Meiling and Koa), Marisa, Alice, Sanae,etc.

Though I would say her general lot in those stories is better than say the Prismrivers, Higan, and general stage 1-2 sorts.

Not to say there weren't set Reisen route stories with nice reisens but they basically died.

As for the fanboys? They used to come up in anything with a decent Reisen appearance and try to steer things towards a Reisen route, sometimes at the expense of the story itself. These attempts typically fail but often irk the regular readers.

GH probably had the biggest shitstorms.

MiG had the most rage inducing ending.

The most love it or hate it story would definitely go to either anything Kahi has written or AWiY.

I'm inclined to say AWiY has resulted in the most controversy. Some of it has even been relatively civil, rather than just people who hate Touhous and people who are Touhou apologists screaming at each other.

You're thinking of Patchy Quest over in /sdm/. Kahi is the one who writes that.
>> No. 18336
>>18334
They were probably slamming it due to the Koakuma Arc thing. Kaahi/chibi-reaper often goes over the grimdark line and into grimderp, but that was pretty bad even for him.

That said, if you ever see spacebattles bitching about something, check said something for yourself instead of listening to them outright. They have a habit of getting outraged over stupid shit and being generally retarded.

To be fair, so do we, but their skins are so thin it's incredible.

He was banned for a while because he posted something considered against the rules (from what I remember, it was a character in one of his quests that was talking about raping a little girl for kicks, which is a big no-no).

The mods...did not take kindly to that.

Even though his ban has been lifted a while back, he hasn't been seen since.

Even so, he does seem to like giving situations where the best choice is to delay the consequences for later because you did something three threads ago 'wrong' and no, you can't go and fix it because I say so and if you try I'll Bad End you. Even if he never outright said it.

For example, in one of the quests, the MC tried to enforce their will onto the equivilant of a Soul Jar. Not only did it not work, Kahi turned it into his GMPC/Deus Ex Machinia, which he would have do stuff if things were going too well for the MC or would come across as a sudden Bad End Out Of Nowhere ('Oh, you died? Well remember that thing you did three threads ago? Yeah, that never stopped being a thing. Therefore, you fucked up.' This was implied but never uttered out of his mouth) if nothing was done about it. And then later tried to pull what he did with Koakuma here. The reaction Kahi had for those against it was basicly 'welp, you just made things harder for yourselves, good job', even though those words were never spoken.

It seemed he didn't want you to play along with his quests, he wanted you to suffer for his own personal enjoyment while he shits all over you.

Even though there are a few people over there who want him to continue what he was doing.

I don't remember this one. Pretty sure that it was in the super grimderp Grimms Fairy Tales sequence for that one thing, where the princess was stuck with the thing trying to trick her into eating the obviously-people soup.

>(from what I remember, it was a character in one of his quests that was talking about raping a little girl for kicks, which is a big no-no).

Nope. This is not the case. In point of fact, I was banned because in the background of one scene, a character implied that they were going to craft a sex toy.

That's right. With so much to choose from, faceless mook murder by uncountable batches, implied attempts by storybook enemies to force the MC into cannibalism, mutual cross-species xenophilic monster romantic affection, wide eyed hallucinatory insanity and vivisection in graphic detail.... it was the masturbation joke that got someone sitting up and going 'NO. THIS IS TOO FAR. YOU MONSTER.'

>Even though his ban has been lifted a while back, he hasn't been seen since.

You kidding? I've been all over the usual haunts there. I haven't posted as much, because I haven't got the drive going for writing anything that's running there, and the site lags like a bitch to the point where roughly ten hours of every day it's nearly impossible to post at all.

>Even so, he does seem to like giving situations where the best choice is to delay the consequences for later because you did something three threads ago 'wrong' and no, you can't go and fix it because I say so and if you try I'll Bad End you. Even if he never outright said it.

Actually, I can't think of more than one quest where the MC has met any kind of bad end at all, yet, and that was the one set in a time loop where your horrific demise doesn't actually stop the story from progressing.

>For example, in one of the quests, the MC tried to enforce their will onto the equivilant of a Soul Jar. Not only did it not work, Kahi turned it into his GMPC/Deus Ex Machinia, which he would have do stuff if things were going too well for the MC or would come across as a sudden Bad End Out Of Nowhere ('Oh, you died? Well remember that thing you did three threads ago? Yeah, that never stopped being a thing. Therefore, you fucked up.' This was implied but never uttered out of his mouth) if nothing was done about it.

Oh, hey, so that is the one you're talking about.

So, tell me, what 'stuff' did it actually do? Basically... point and laugh whenever you did something retarded, and believe me there was a lot of retard juice sloshing around, and then later help prevent the birth of an abomination against existence that would immediately destroy all things everywhere retroactively forever? Sure did a whole lot of maliciously bad-ending you with that, huh?

Maybe how it rescued a captive from a situation you put them in where they were definitely going to die once the monster crawled out of the pit again, and helpfully pointed out that the monster you threw in the pit was eventually going to crawl back out again?

All I'm saying is that if you're going to make so many messes that it's impossible for you to feasibly clean them up on your own, you don't get to complain when I invent a maid to mop up some of the spilled puddles of ridiculous bullshit in the background. But since it's clearly 'bitch about things and stories entirely unrelated to this site or the thread topic' day:

>The reaction Kahi had for those against it was basicly 'welp, you just made things harder for yourselves, good job', even though those words were never spoken.

No, I'm pretty sure those words were spoken.

Just mostly in the sense of 'Well, okay, so you charge headfirst into the monster's lair without wondering for even a second about why things look strange, I see'.

Or 'You want to make armor out of what's basically pure and physical evil that is documented to go well out of its way to hurt things, and then stick it on someone's chest. You're sure about this?' Turns out that wasn't such a stroke of fucking genius, who could have guessed that.

How about 'You want to try to ambush the hair-trigger time-stopping person on the edge of a nervous breakdown with what might as well be infinite guns by this point, instead of trying some sort of non-threatening contact, like putting a note in her school locker? Because she totally fucking goes to school'. For that one, I actually ended up fudging things for a 'random' stroke of fortune that probably should have been something close to one in a billion odds to prevent you from dying right there, just because I kept feeling like I was kicking a retarded idiot puppy when I tried to write what the actual and obvious results should have been.

Yeah, you don't get to complain about things getting harder when you seem to be going well out of your way to pick the batshit retarded votes that almost have to be specifically designed for the sole purpose of making things harder on yourself. Cry more.



When it comes down to it, of course, I don't really mind people complaining about things I do. I'm an asshole that will happily put you into difficult situations, I won't go out of my way to point out things that should be obvious to people that read more than one word every three sentences, or stop you from making frankly ridiculously insane votes unless they go completely contrary to the protagonist's character.

I'll even fuck with people, since you can't be sure if what someone thinks or knows in a story post is true, or just what they believe is true, or if someone the MC talks to is entirely trustworthy. And the things I say outside of story posts might be true, misleading, or straight out bald-faced lies. Example: "John of City Quest has Succubus ancestry from way back on his mother's side, and that's why some rare results are coming up so that he's easily tempted and more recently is losing his grip a bit and is coming to terms with the new evil voice in his head." Have fun figuring out if that's the whole truth or total bullshit.

In any case, I don't really care if people feel like bitching about things I've done, because there's seriously a lot for you to shit your pants in fury over. But stick to pissing yourself in incontinent rage over things I've actually done, and don't try to pretend that you expected things to turn out sunshine and daisies when you were metaphorically voting to stick your collective testicles into a nutcracker with some of your inane judgement calls.

Either way: there's a better thread for this bullshit.

>>17777

This has been building up for a while I see.

>it was the masturbation joke that got someone sitting up and going 'NO. THIS IS TOO FAR. YOU MONSTER.'

At the time I facepalmed, but now I can't stop laughing everytime it's brought up. Spacebattles has an odd sense of priorities.

>I'm an asshole

...For whatever it's worth, I don't think you are. As far as I'm concerned, you're feelings on the matter are justified and people really need to get over this shit. I've never understood where all this bitching comes from, in a setting like PMMM you have to expect any stupid decisions to come back and bite you in the arse. I mean, look at the fucking source matierial, for god's sake. What did everyone expect, puppies and rainbows?

In my opinion, making the players suffer for every mistake they make in a setting like PMMM is exactly how it should be run. Hell, if anything you were probably being too nice.

Even with all the retarded decisions you still managed to write a compelling story that made sense, and for that you have kudos from me. While your stories are not entirely my thing (I'm more of a light hearted story fan myself), you're the kind of writer I aspire to be. Keep up the good work.

Hard to say. There have been plenty of bizzaro experimental monkey cheese world things written. Most don't survive more than a thread or two. Some do - I think that Time Cube thing is still theoretically being updated in /th/ right now. And there's always that guy who brought in Meta Knight for a crossover.

But in terms of things that actually developed into a full fledged story? Palingenesia. It might not have had an insane protagonist (The Game) or incomprehensible prose (Lighthouse), but it was very, very Different from any other story I've seen posted around here.

Obviously you haven't read enough of YAF's recent stories if you think Lighthouse has incomprehensible prose!

Joking aside, the reason Lighthouse is so wierd is not because of it's prose (or rather, not entirely because of it's prose), but because the protagonist is batshit insane. The Game's protagonist is 100% sane by comparison.

I would volunteer to continue it I did, I have a few pages sitting on my hard drive. It is possible, given how the "ARC ONE" plot twist: Pan being the vessel for the evil goddess that unleashed the Shadows in the first place is over and what happens from then on is pretty much freeplay with a plot hook on visiting the Netherworld. On the other hand, the way the author handles villains: OMG THERE ARE THESE TWO YOUKAI LORDS MORE POWERFUL THAN YUKARI WHO CAN CONVINCE TOUHOUS TO DO EVIL STUFFs FOR THEM AND YET NEVER APPEARED TILL NOW, the occasional case of grimderp,a severe deficiency of useful characters due to them being dead YOU EVEN KILLED MY FAVORITE CHARACTER BEFORE THE STORY STARTED or forgotten entirely, and a general sense of inconsistency makes it a challenging prospect.

Ha, YAF just got served on a silver platter. I wish I could see that more often. We really need to do something about that weed problem we have here. Excuse me >>18435 but would you like to have a job as THP's gardener? We could use your help keeping weed's like >>18436 under control.

Read the thread before the vote is called, and add an addendum to yours of "-[x] None of that stupid shit >>this_guy said."

Or, the author could try not being a dick, but that may or may not be possible, depending.

Anti-voting is in bad taste, but you can still just say if you disagree with something. If the author calls a vote like that, just contest his decision and let everyone work out a solution.
