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.

Are there any definitive specifications as to where to place a story, or do you have to play it by ear?
Like what would qualify a story to be in /th/ rather than, let’s say /shrine/ if the story mainly happened inside the village?
Where would the limit be before it belongs in /others/?
Etc.
>> No. 18462
>>18461
There is no written rule about story placement. The guideline I personally follow is:

-If a story takes place mainly in a specific area, then it goes to the board about that area.
-If it doesn't happen in one place in particular, then it goes in /th/.
-If it happens outside the Gensokyo verse (read: crossovers), or it's clearly an experimental story, then it goes to /others/.
-If it's just a few posts long, or it doesn't have a CYOA format, then it goes to /shorts/.

Then again, it's just the way I do it. You are free to post your story wherever you like. The whole board thing is just for finding stories starring certain toohoos easier.

And who are we to decide what a writer can and cannot do with their own story? Especially with regards to something as nebulous as write-ins, no less?

The good ones already ignore those anyway, or brush them off in-story.

>> No. 18468
>>18466
We don't really have much in the way of hard rules here beyond "Don't post lewds without spoilers outside of /at/." Writers are expected to keep a hold on their own threads as far as what will and won't fly. Mods only get involved in cases of votespam, truly massive shitstorms, and the like. The mods tend to be invisible until they have to smite some dumbass who's stirring shit.

And we tend to prefer it this way. Any attempt at rule-making that isn't a matter of necessity will get shot down overwhelmingly.

I've seen many writers on this site to use some kind of second name along with the name you input in the name field. Like "!ttRabBit9s" or "!foOlREAVlE" to put two examples. What exactly are they for? And where can I make one for myself?

And to get the specific tripcode you want:

http://tripcode.50webs.com/

Keep in mind that this is for non-secure tripcodes only. Secure tripcodes introduce a cryptographic salt that makes the output not predictable by these programs.

Example:
Non-Secure: #butts > !ttRabBit9s (and will generate as such for almost any imageboard)
Secure: ##butts > !!dickbuttes (and generates differently depending on the imageboard)

When a bad end is predicted, I've seen the terms "snow end" and "lake end" thrown around by some voters. Where did these terms come from?
>> No. 18608

Lake End is a reference to You Wake Up in Gensokyo, the story that birthed THP. People would vote to jump into the lake and drown themselves when they screwed up. Nowadays, it only really shows up as a snarky way of telling someone "kill yourself".

Snow End refers to Misadventures in Gensokyo, the first THP story to finish properly, for a certain definition of properly. Snow end was a bad end that brought about much rage, especially because it seemed to come from left field and they got locked into it from about the halfway point. It also doubles as a reference to Clannad, with all the depression that entails.
>> No. 18609
>>18608
People did that because they wanted to undo a screw up and a bad end would allow for a bit of rewinding. So in earlier stories, it could have been an attempt at resetting things.

Don't do it. It's bad form, for multiple reasons.

The only time I can think of it being acceptable is if your story is a really wierd one, possibly involving breaking the fourth wall or having something trying to corrupt or mind control the protagonist. Basically, voting in your own story is bad unless you have an in-universe reason for doing so.

Who is this Wiseman person I keep hearing about, and why does everyone seem to hate him?
>> No. 18910
>>18909
Wiseman is a fabled creature lurking in the darkness of threads, waiting for helpless victims to arrive. It is said that it has 7 eyes, 6 in formation as a spider and an extra 7th eye to see opportunities to strike. Nobody knows how many arms or legs it has or if the limbs can even be called such. Some say it is a minor reject cosmic horror, others that it is the Invoker Angel of Imbeciles.

Once blood is drawn, it latches onto the victim(s) and drains them of wisdom until they drop. In a pitch, it will stir up a fight and beat down the victim with experience. It is wise to mention that is has a twisted code of honor, it must fight the victim in a verbal, wisdom-draining gauntlet of logical mistakes. Often it reaches the physical barrier of idiotic paradoxes, requiring the intervention of higher powers.

As such, it creates widespread panic due to the rapid draining of wisdom, fun, joy and other pleasant concepts from the threads. These are only secondary effects of the creature, the primary concern if the derailment of threads, usually causing the mob to begin to fight with itself. It is not uncommon to find the creature in the middle of the fight, laughing and crying tears of joy.

Chemical analysis shows that the tears of joy of this particular creature contain a lot of tetraethylmethane.

HY's SDM LA story. The first big success for /sdm/
The story had an aggressive Sakuya, who never quite warmed up to anon due to her fanatic loyalty over anon's crush: Remilia. She then went full nightmare fuel on him when he started trying to fix Flandre's relationship with Remi.
So, when this 'frenemy' says something ominous and asks him for his weapon and a kiss anon's mind exploded.
Turned out, in the end, that the option was, as per the writefag words, irrelevant in the scheme of things and just added as flavor.

I will make you rue the day you discounted my splendid time travel, my death-filled mindfucking, my fortress of self-reassurance of my own brilliance. I will find your very home, you judgement-bound lunatic, and I will show you the powers of time travel! I will take you into the flea-ridden past that encompass all of our illustrious memories, and I will undo and redo your death over and over, so many times, that the death count will far exceed the amount of humans that have existed on this planet and all of its parallel iterations! Then you, you, you will see, just see who is the true Grandmaster of Death. You will see with your own eyes the powers of time, and you will choke. Choke on your own words. You will rue the day that I discovered this remarkable imageboard, rue the hour my story appeared out of the aether, rue the moment you posted in this thread, rue each and every tick of Planck time that passed between your offensive post and my disgruntled reply.

Because I'm so bored, I'm going to try to give useful answers to all of these.

>Why does Hina's sex doujins have massive tonal juxtaposition in most hentai?
Probably something to do with misfortune.

>Why is Patchouli a magnet for tentacles in hentai?
Wizards summon things. People apparently think a wizard of 100+ years makes novice mistakes while summoning things.

>Why is Alice a target for stalkers and weirdos in hentai?
The better question is, why does every creepy depressing Alice rape doujin get translated, while much better choices get left by the wayside?

>Why is Marisa a candidate for sugary sweet yuri?
Because she is a ladies' woman, and yuri fans won't stand for their precious relationships to be impure.

>Why is Sanae depicted as a slut in most doujinshi?
"Sanae is a slut" meme, derived from "Sanae is a good girl" meme, birthed from Happy Flame Time's Cold Wind but Warm Winter.

>Why are Satori and Rumia considered the perfect lolis in hentai?
Satori: because she can read all your dirty lolicon thoughts so she knows what a dirty lolicon you are and this is hot somehow?
Rumia: she's a dumb blonde.

>Why does Kagerou provides a hairy fetish for every hentai artist out there?
She is the only Touhou with canon body hair, even if only under a full moon.

>Why does Raiko gets her ass spanked every time in hentai?
Drums.

>Why is Yuyuko a prime target for gangbangs?
The whole "big eater Yuyuko" thing gets generalized into her being a hedonist all around?

>Why do the Prismriver Sisters never get in a threesome?
They have a troubled backstory, so they can never be happy.

>Why do I feel so bad for Hatate in most hentai?
Because no matter how hard she tries, she is still going to be less popular than Aya.

>Why can't Kokoro make an really nasty ahegao in practically every doujinshi?
Because no hentai artists ever actually saw the true ending of Hopeless Masquerade, wherein she emotes.

>Why isn't there enough non-rape hentai of Mokou and Kaguya?
Troubled backstory; can't be happy.

>Why is there so little guro starring Yuuka, considering her infamy in fanon?
Most men would prefer domination to mutilation.

>Why is Reisen a useless little bunny who's only good for her sex appeal?
Useless little meme, only good for its "comic" appeal

>Why is Kanako depicted as a inexperienced virgin?
Because a hot older (looking) woman juxtaposed against a(n apparent) loli who isn't a virgin is just hilarious, amirite?

>Why is Momiji considered everyone's waifu?
When MoF first hit the scene, she had no characterization. People saw her fluffy tail and decided to contrast her with Aya (the only other depicted tengu), making her prime waifu material. By the time materials expounding on her came out, it was too late for anyone to care.

>Why is Wriggle a futanari in most hentai?
Come on. You should know this one.

>Why is Yorihime a rape victim in most hentai?
Because the average fan holds more antipathy towards her than towards most other Touhous.

>Why is Letty so fat and voluptuous in most hentai?
Hitbox joke.

>Why is Futo so cute with her hat off in most hentai?
Becuase her hat is silly.

>Why is a completely underrated character like Meiling considered to be the hottest girl in Touhou?
Underrated in what sense? Anyway, probably because she works out

>Why is Sakuya an obedient, bondage, sex slave in most hentai?
Well, as long as it's towards Remilia or Flandre (or at their behest), it would make some sense. Otherwise, good question.

>Why is Flandre a prime target for sugary sweet vanilla?
Come on, "flan" is in her name. How could she not be sweet?

>Why is Yukari depicted as a genuine freak of nature in hentai?
>Implying she isn't a genuine freak of nature

>Why is Yamame depicted as a diabolical yet cool seductress in hentai?
Spider -> Predator -> There you go.

>Why is Okuu depicted as a sweet, and innocent girl?
Okuu being dumb is pretty much a meme, which gets generalized into innocence. Never mind that she can do nuclear physics-related math in a snap.

>Why is Youmu always depicted as a flat chested girl, with a petite figure?
Contrast with Yuyuko.

>Why is Byakuren always depicted either as a repressed sex deviant or a completely inexperienced virgin in every hentai she's in?
Because apparently there is no other way to portray someone who has dealt with a vow of celibacy.

>Why does Suika make drunken sex look appealing?
Because she is always drunk, and hentai artists usually attempt to make sex look appealing.

>Why is Yuugi so muscular and assertive in most hentai?
With a title like Yuugi the Strong, why not?

>Why does Nitori make weird sex toys in most hentai?
Because a brilliant engineer/inventor makes for a convenient plot device, no matter the story.

>Why does Eirin supply every rapist/male character with weird aphrodisiacs and sleeping drugs in most hentai?
See above, but replace "engineer/inventor" with "pharmacist".

>Why do artists insist that Tenshi has a nice ass in hentai?
Something about masochist Tenshi meme and spanking.

>Why is there never any hentai (or doujinshi, for that matter) of Mima?
Who?

>Why does Shinki make the greatest MILF character in Touhou hentai?
Probably because her clothes look like a Santa dress.

>Why is Chen the instant jailbait character in hentai?
Well we don't actually know how old she is.

>Why is Ran the perfect furry character in hentai?
Because she is only 10% furry like all the other "furry" Touhous, and that is the perfect (read: maximum acceptable) amount of furry.

>Why does Akyuu have the saddest, most heartbreaking doujinshi?
See previous answers regarding troubled backstories.

>Why does every artist give Komachi, Daiyosei and Kasen huge tits?
Komachi: Officially has an "imposing" figure
Daiyousei: It's right in her name
Kasen: Because she has short pink hair, people make her follow in Yuyuko and Komachi's footsteps

>Why does Seiga Kaku only fuck little boys in hentai?
Cuz she's a "wicked" hermit, duh.

>Why does Yoshika fulfill the disturbing thoughts of the necrophiliacs of the world?
Please pardon me as I proceed to blow your mind here: because she's dead.

>Why does Cirno get herself into sticky situations every time she appears in hentai?
She gets herself into sticky situations all the time anyway; why should hentai be any different?

>Why does Aya perform slow sex in most hentai when she's clearly the fastest in Gensyoko?
That's just it! Slow sex is her taking a relaxing break from being fast all the time.

>Why can't Koakuma commit to one body type in every doujinshi she's in?
Ambiguous official depiction. She can't even commit to one general hair length.

>Why is Tojiko so boring that she never is the protagonist of a full-fleged doujinshi?
Because she is a satellite character to Futo and Miko.

>Why does Seija make me want to punch her, yet make sweet love to her at the same time?
Well that's just kind of her thing.

>Why is Sukuna made into a living cock-sleeve in every hentai she's in?
Yet another case of artistic license with regards to anatomy: surely nothing terrible would happen from inserting a normal-sized penis into someone that size, right?

>Why is it strange that Maribel and Renko have the most normal relationship in the Touhou project, yet when they appear in a hentai doujin other than vanilla yuri, it's in some sort of freakish genre like rape, scat or guro?
Because they live in the real world, and REALITY SUCKS.

>Why is Iku instant fap material for most artists?
Well, just look at how snappy of a dresser she is.

>How do you even have sex with Wakasagihime?
Quite simple. Just have her lay her eggs in an appropriate aquatic substrate (such as rock or sand), then swim down there and spray them with your sperm.

>Why do Aki and Minoriko look hot when they double team a guy in hentai?
Probably because it's hentai.

>Why is it that when Sekibanki is in a hentai, it's not considered guro?
The lack of any actual blood and gore helps.

>Why does Toyohime look so sexy when she smiles?
Because people hate her less than they hate her sister.

>Why do I want to sign up for Keine's sex-ed classes?
I don't know; she would probably teach a very boring, by-the-book sex-ed curriculum.

>Why is Rinnosuke a straight pimp in most hentai?
Because Touhou suffers from a male deficiency.

>Why does Reimu become the a perfect target for every genre of hentai there is?
She is the most common character in canon, which makes her one of the most common character in fanon, which naturally makes her fanon portrayals quite diverse.

Slutty stuff are harder to sort out since they don't have their own tag unlike rape (Most of them have 'Group' tag, but not all.) Also, I found slutty stuff dominates most content of doujins with other touhoues too, rather than just Sanae, at least from my view. The meme connected to her certainly doesn't help with the situation.

Still, if a doujin is too cute/sweet/contain lots of feel, I probably ended up unable to enjoy it. Nevermind that, I'll enjoy it, just not the way that I expect. And it's good.
>> No. 19811

>> No. 19813
>>19811
You mean the characterization? Like 'This is sweet and all, but will the real character do the stuff in this doujin?'

With some background story focusing on her character development, this could be done without alienating the reader, but it requires effort, and the artist can't only put his effort to the story only, since they have to draw the characters too(Unlike most of us here).

Can't be too picky, it's either it or the ungodly amount of rape/slutty stuff, especially slutty stuff, they breaks the characterization even more than the diabetes-inducing one.

Can Touhous cheat at spell card duels? What are the consequences for doing that? How did Seija Kijin escape the wrath of the shrine maiden of paradise?
>> No. 19973
>>19972
You practically answered all the questions yourself.

>Can Touhous cheat at spell card duels?
Yes, Seija Kijin shows how in Impossible Spell Card. However, she allegedly did it because her pursuers were breaking the rules themselves by using, well, impossible spell cards. Which begets the question: what is the criteria for labeling a spell card "illegal"?

>What are the consequences for doing that?
Usually, breaking the Spell Card Rules incurs in the fury of the Hakurei shrine maiden, who will pull out all the stops and probably exterminate the culprit for real. But if so, why did all the rivals in Impossible Spell Card begin using illegal danmaku first? Was the pursuit of Seija authorized by Reimu from the beginning?

>How did Seija Kijin escape the wrath of the shrine maiden of paradise?
This is a spoiler from the game's ending. Read at your own risk.

After defeating everybody who stood in her way, Seija became ostracized and lost all her friends and allies (but since she's an amanojaku, she's actually fine with that). My guess is that her pursuers lost interest in Seija after realizing the bounty on her head wasn't worth all the trouble.
>> No. 19974
>>19973
So, Impossible spell cards shows that people can partially break the rules of spell card duels in Gensokyo and not suffer death by Reimu.

Now watch as writers proceed to completely ignore that in favor of picturing Reimu instantly killing anybody who ever thinks about breaking the spell card rules.
>> No. 19975
>>19974
I think it really depends on the context. If someone ignores the rules to beat up a rebellious troublemaker like Seija, then Reimu may decide to look the other way, or even join the "party" if she feels like it. But if you break them to start an incident, then may the Moriya gods have mercy on your soul, because the Hakurei will not.
>> No. 19976
>>19975
1) She caused the previous incident.
2) Reimu put a bounty on her head and told everybody to cheat at her.
3) She cheats back at spell card duels to win them.

And what we see? Reimu does nothing about this.

I think Reimu just doesn't care that much about cheating in spell card duels (as long as nobody dies, at least) as you think she does.
>> No. 19977
>>19976
Upon re-reading the translation of the game's dialogues, I realize I was making wrong assumptions. Here's my (new) interpretation of how the events of IS really happened:

Immediately after the events of DDC, the tsukumogami that were born by the power of the Miracle Mallet (Raiko and the Tsukumo sisters) and the youkai that became aggressive (WaggySaggy, Banki, Kagerou) regained their senses, and realized Seija had manipulated them all. Someone puts a bounty on the amanojaku's head (I believe it was Shinmyomaru, more on that later), and all the wronged youkai go chase after her with impossible barrages, partly out of revenge, partly for that bounty. Seija, feeling threatened, resorts to using the remaining power of the Miracle Mallet and some cheat items to survive and defeat her attackers.

[SPOILER ALERT: Read at your own risk]
This goes on for a week, while the tales of the amanojaku who cheats her way through spread over, catching the attention of stronger youkai. Eventually, Seija crosses paths with Shinmyomaru, and the inchling tries one last time to convince the amanojaku that the social upheaval from DDC is over, and that she should give up. But being the contrarian she is, Seija refuses, saying that the revolution has just begun. Then Sukuna reveals that she convinced the strongest people in Gensokyo (read: Marisa, Reimu, Sakuya, Byakuren, Toyosatomimi, Yukari, etc.) to take the bounty hunt seriously. But Seija is having none of that, and keeps on fighting waves after waves of impossible danmaku. And the rest is what I said earlier.

That's only my interpretation, though. You're free to take it or rebut it.

They probably go into Nirvana (dimension?). That's where you go if you break the cycle the reincarnation IIRC.
>> No. 20016
Yeah, at least one of the eastern religions, Buddhism I think, follows the idea that all living things reincarnate indefinitely in a perpetual cycle of suffering and the only way to escape this is to achieve true enlightenment by detaching yourself from worldly desire, something that's usually expected to take several lifetimes I believe, at which point you are freed from the cycle and achieve Nirvana.

Exactly what Nirvana is, I've never been able to figure out. The way it's described, it's either a place devoid of suffering like Heaven or something, or simply a way of saying you cease to exist, which I suppose would be preferable to never ending suffering.

So, I guess she either sends them to "heaven" or destroys them entirely. Which again depending on how you look at it, is still better than living.

He also holds the position of having the most completed stories of all the authors on the site, both full CYOAs and short stories, as discussed here; >>18799.

He's a bit of a controversial figure on THP; some people love him, others hate him. I'm not too sure of how many of the latter actually despise him, so much as they just enjoy taking the piss out of him though.

>Goes by the trip !foOlREAVlE in this imageboard, if you wish to search his works on the story list.

I'll point out that YAF has changed his trip at least twice over the years, usually due to someone finding out his tripcode. If you search for his current trip you'll only get his newest stuff, all of which are rather short. Search for YAF if you want his old stuff, and just type fool to get his most recent writing. That should at least get most of his stories.

How many YAF stories contain a Yandere Alice in them?
>> No. 20029

All of them. We just never got to see that part of her in any of them.

Why some recent stories have goblins in SDM? From what source do they come?
>> No. 20031
>>20030
A recent chapter in wild and horned hermit (the Kasen manga) which had Yukari bring in Goblins to replace the house spirits that went elsewhere for a time. But they didn't prove as popular and the SDM decided to take them in.

Well...that certainly explains all the goblin doujin I've seen pop up.

I've seen the Lotus Pavilion get mentioned in at least three different stories now. Where did this come from? I'm pretty sure Zun didn't come up with it since, as far as I can tell, there are no whorehouses in canon Gensokyo.

/at/ series of shorts (pretty tasteful) that was popular with some other writers and they felt teh need to include it somehow.

in reverse Restorer in Gensokyo's Reina has been in a few /at/ things herself, in a sort of honorary touhou role (of getting fucked)

Okay, stupid question but what do you guys think of Silent Sinner in Blue? I'm 5 chapters in and I don't see why it causes the anger that it does so far.

You really ought to read Cage in Lunar Runegate as well as the two make the full arc intended while SSiB makes for the core of it.

As for rage, just wait until you see the fight scenes... as much as they could pass. Only one to really be able to put up a real fight is Reimu

Does anyone have any idea where I can find a good Gensokyo map with at least Byakuren's temple on it? Google gives me severely outdated versions.
>> No. 20099
>>20096
There's no official map.
Byakuren's temple is in the human city, or around the outskirts of it. It should be worth it to update a map yourself if you really need to visualize it.

Try asking in IRC. Probably someone would be up for it. Just don't expect them to drop all their conversations and respond immediately. You may need to ask at different times when different people are on.

Is there some kind of mechanism that prevents post deletion after a certain period of time? I have some problems there.

It's a cookie thing. If you clear your cookies, use a different browser or machine then you won't be able to delete your posts. It'll be the postpassword one. If you manually set your own password, and then input it you should be able to delete even really old posts.
