Let's try to inject some goddamn life into this board.
This thread is for posting whatever you like, preferably touhou or writing related. Have a random thought? Find a good picture? A good arrange? Dug up a hidden gem of a doujin? Want to publicly declare your love for your waifu? Post, fucker. Post now.

I'll start us off. What drugs do you suppose the oni do, other than alcohol?
Butt drugs.

Oni get off on suppositories, it's a proven fact.

Probably more like whole kilos of opium.
For each.
20 years later, I'm still mad that one story ended with Yuyuko NORMAL end instead of Prismriver gangbang.

We need more Ellen. Lovely, fluffy Ellen.
Maybe Lion should get to finishing Border House. Must have read it three times.

requiescat in paI actually never read it, even when it was running, because I'm not much into AUs.

By the way, what's the deal with the 'lost my notes' excuse(so to speak)? I'm not writing a terribly plot-heavy story, but shouldn't every writer have at least most of their story firmly in their head? Surely you'd be able to remember even the small details by just sitting down, rereading the whole thing and then hammering it out again.
Good point. Part of me wants to say it's an excuse, but I guess if your story is intensely plot-heavy, you might need your notes.

Personally, though, I keep all my notes in my head; even for plot-heavy stories. I can't write down my notes for the life of me.
Notes are plenty important. Key plot points may be something most people wouldn't forget but the devil's in the details. The notes could specify specific sort of language to use in key scenes, things characters are thinking or want to accomplish in relation to events as well as particular imagery and exposition of theme. Alternatively, seeing as how a lot of stories on the site easily breach the 100k word count they're useful for keeping track of details and enforcing consistency. Can anyone say what color the box in MiG was with confidence?

Sure, if you're just winging it or don't care about being 100% true to the original vision notes don't matter as much. Personally I only need them when dealing with consistency for objects and clothes (and spells and abilities) since it can be weeks if not months when the last time it was relevant came up and re-reading is a bit of a chore.

Also, Oni would do coke. Fits their lifestyle choices. Opium is for over-privileged shrine maidens.
In MiG? Nope. However, in DtRT thing it was definitely Black. And it hasn't even come up in like, 30 threads or something. Speaking of which what the fuck IS with that box? Even after all this time we've learned nothing about it.
Thanks Underground.
Point is: If an author of a short(ish) and fast paced story back in the day wasn't able to keep track of something as basic as that then I think it's a good argument for having notes.

Quick poll, what's the best UFO who's not Byakuren? I need this information for reasons.
Wonderful Momizou Tail~

A certain umbrella youkai.

Nue, because she's the only one who's actually a UFO; she wins by default.

Oh captain my captain

Kogasa or maybe Nue.

Nue is best UFO, but they're all pretty great.

So THP, how do you prefer your Nue? There are a lot of ways to portray her.

Why, like this, of course.

Delinquent, miscreant, and barely controlled but with a soft spot for Byakuren?

I couldn't tell you. I strongly believe in understanding characters by surviving their bullet patterns, and I've not gone up against even one of Nue's real bullet patterns for more than long enough for me to lose my last life to it. And it's very different watching a replay or video of a battle than it is going up against the enemy yourself.

Then again, I also play the Touhou games pretty heavily, and I'm pretty bad at writing.

Oh gosh she looks like J-Reaper.

That's a good question. Don't pay her much attention, but rarely run into a Nue I actually dislike. Such a versatile character.

I like Kasen's design, but not her personality. Is there any way to make her interesting?
My first thought is to set your story in the time when Suika, Yuugi, Kasen, and the other oni were still rampaging, that is, the time the legend of Shuten-doji was set in. At that point Ibaraki-doji would still have had an arm and openly admitted to being an oni, and according to the story, would have been significantly more evil than the Kasen we know now.
Probably. What about her personality do you dislike?

Well, it could be that she's really defined by her hermit-ness. It seems like any premise she could be involved in has to mesh with her restrictive, complicated lifestyle and philosophy that I don't much understand.

She's also not very nice, and tends to come off as condescending. Fanon makes her into a one-dimensional morals officer and/or rape-bait, and I've already explored those avenues.

But I do like her design.
Technically, very little of her canon personality is actually known before WaHH reveals what her deal really is.

>She's also not very nice, and tends to come off as condescending.
I've heard this time and again, but just don't see it.

She's not a very good hermit and doesn't follow their rules all the time. Plus she's, you know, not actually a hermit. You should have some knowledge of a hermit's lifestyle, but don't necessarily have to restrict her to it.
I don't see the condescending bit, she comes off as more a concerned friend in terms of Reimu and Marisa, and we'll find out more as more chapters are translated.

that's it

While the order is debatable, I approve of this selection.
I'm pretty iffy on Kasen.
She feels pretty Sue-ish to me.

2. Not awful

The stories I've been reading have been kind of slow lately, what stories on any of the boards would you recommend?
Allow me to direct you
Posts should not bump threads by default.

It should be the opposite. Threads only get bumped if you add 'age' to the email subject. This would solve some problems for us.
I disagree. The only thing you gain is a slight dip in spambot posts, which are few and far between. You trade off active stories being near the top, you also introduce a non-standard imageboard method that nobody's going to remember, and you actively drive off new blood through it.

Sure, sage is courtesy occasionally on this board. But everywhere else it's mostly the opposite. And if someone forgets sage here on a non-vote non-story post, it's no big deal anyway.
