A Warhammer40K/Touhou crossover.

I already saw one such crossover, and they surprisingly meshed together quite nicely, and that was with a die hard This-Is-How-It-Must-Be-No-Questions-Asked Touhou fan. Heck, they're doing a sequel as well.

So I'd like to see one done as a CYOA.

Not a crossover, but I thought of an idea for a short story, formatted as the terse lab notes of a biologist.

An interesting possibility would be a Crysis CYOA, where we would incarnate a Nanosuit wearing soldier, preferably a Nanosuit 2.0 for the added functions and SECOND. How would the most cutting edge piece of military hardware on the globe react to being in the land of make-believe?
No. 2983
Very interestingly. The MC could arm-wrestle Suika, race Aya, and take several hits in a danmaku fight, though not all at once.

Another fun one would be a Section 8 crossover - orbital drop right into Reimu's shrine, then watch her despair in the subsequent duel when you activate a lock-on, nullifying her dodging and grazing.
No. 2988
Take a few danmaku? Danmaku are made to be non-lethal, correct? Brother, the Nanosuit could take a whole damn avalanche of danmaku and not even break a sweat. Danmaku would make Prophet, Psycho, Nomad or Alcatraz laugh.

I mean, Alcatraz had broken bones and wounds all over, his lungs had collapsed and his heart was in bad shape, yet the Nanosuit easily kept him going above and beyond peak human capacities. The Nanosuit 2.0 does turn soldiers into Post-Human Warriors. More then that, with the Nanosuit 2.0, to quote Hargreaves, : "Death is an inconvenience now, nothing more." It also actively adapts to battlefield hazards and conditions, actively adapting to its opponents to give the wearer better chances against them.

Now, I disagree that a Nanosuited soldier could arm wrestle with Oni or outrun a Tengu, especially not the strongest and fastest examples of the species. However, he could definitively outfight any youkai by playing it smart with all the advantages of the Nanosuit, or at the very least have a far better chance of survival then a normal human even if said Youkai really wanted to kill him.

The biggest interest would be the reaction of Gensokyian locals to the Nanosuit itself. What would Youkai think at the sight of technology which is beginning to rival magic, capable of denying death, of invisibility, of speed and strength such as to level the playing field with Youkai, of full sentience and sapience. What would the local Humans think, seeing that Mankind is reaching levels of technology capable of doing the impossible? Of matching Youkai?

I've been thinking about doing a Sengoku Basara/Rance crossover with Touhou.
Essentially the setting would be Sengoku Japan with a mixture of clans from both Rance and Basara, with each getting a few Touhou characters as retainers.
Gotta admit though, finding a good balance between all the clans while maintaining a semblance of characters getting along is harder than I'd thought.
I know this is more for games than stories but it seemed like a good place to find people who might be interested in the idea.

I have to ask, considering one of the things mentioned in the rules was regarding crossovers, would still taking a single character from an established universe and dropping him/her in Gensokyo be considered a crossover? I ask that because it still focuses far more on Gensokyo than anywhere else.

For instance take say single marine, ODST, or even a Spartan- whether it be a II or III, and drop any of them into Gensokyo could something like that work? I picked Halo, but considering how many stories have even nameless characters among even those considered superior, I wonder if such a thing could work?

As for the Nanosuit 2.0 protagonist, would it still be considered magic when it's found out the suit is growing into his/her wounds? Finally what would Gensokyians, either youkai or human, think about the alien invasion and such?
No. 3822

No. 3824
"The suit, man. Hargreaves was right, the suit changes all the rules." 'Course, the Gensokyo natives would probably consider it magic... and be hellishly surprised when it behaved far more intelligently and unpredictably then any magical artifact they know ever would. Heuristic systems that border on sentience and sapience are like that, especially since they operate on Clark's Law levels of sophistication. Literally, the suit-tech (and underlying Ceph nano-tech) is so freaking advanced, it's like magic. Except unlike magic, that technology that advanced is usually capable of adapting to nearly any situation, or any battlefield hazard. It's capable of adapting the soldier wearing it to the situation as well.

The wearer is terrified? Suppress emotional responses to the source of fear within the wearer. The wearer is feeling tired? Augment adrenal production and remove the chemicals that induce mental and physical fatigue. The wearer is feeling conflicted? Carefully dampen neural signals from the moral centres of the brain. The Nanosuit 2.0 can literally reformat the soldier to be better, faster, stronger and smarter even outside itself. It optimizes the soldier that wears it.

Of course, not every Nanosuit wearer is a fatally wounded soldier like Alcatraz. Alcatraz was likely missing most of the flesh and bone the suit replaced before Prophet put him inside it. Wounds suffered while wearing the Nanosuit are likely repaired with the very meat that was damaged. And the attack have to go through the Nanosuit first.

Similarly, Prophet didn't reach the same level of synchronization/fusion that Alcatraz reached. The Suit and Prophet were still considered two despite the three years between Ling Shan and New York, while at the end of Crysis 2 (a mere two days at most) Alcatraz and the Suit were one.

(I strongly recommend reading Crysis: Legion by Peter Watts. The depiction of the Nanosuit is really good.)

And then, you have to consider that Hargreaves managed to reprogram the suit-tech enough so that it considers Human Life, instead of Ceph life, to be the template to follow. The Nanosuit is a Virus aimed at anything not Human/Earth evolved life, and Youkai/Lunarians are not naturally evolved biological life. The conclusions are obvious.

As for crossovers, I think it varies. For instance, a Crysis crossover can work with just the NanoSuit, because, beside the Ceph, the Nanosuit is all that really makes the universe very different and interesting. Other universes work less as crossovers because it's not a character or a piece of technology that's interesting, but the setting itself.
No. 3826
Interesting. As for naturally evolved, while I doubt youkai are natural, aren't Lunarians just humans who use magic to go to the moon? I remember hearing somewhere that this sage decided he'd go to the moon and took his closest friends, family, and followers with him so that they'd all escape the impurity of the Earth.

You mentioned the Virus, will youkai start dying from it? That might honestly start a real conflict between the youkai and humans again right?
No. 3827
The Manhattan Pathogen was both a virus and a terra morphing tool for the Ceph. Take out the hostile macrofauna, clear the way for the Ceph in a way that extremely hard to stop unless you possess an equal or superior level of nano/gene-engineering. Humanity did not possess such technology in Crysis 2.

What Humanity did have was a "hacked" piece of Ceph hardware, a nano weave based artificial muscle covered in receptors molecules for spores, made by Hargreaves and Rasch to be able to re-code the spores used by the Ceph. From an Anti-Human/Great Ape Area Denial Weapon, the spores were recoded by the Nanosuit into a Anti-Ceph Area Denial Weapon, as Hargreaves and Rasch sought.

Now, the Nanosuit was perfectly capable of re-coding the spores' genetic/nano programming into attacking Ceph organisms and not Human organisms (the Time Square event proved that). What it couldn't do was provide a programming code that would be lethal to Ceph AND fix Human organisms infected by the original spores. That's what the Tunguska Iteration was, a code to transform the spores into a Ceph Plague and a Human Panacea. Effectively hijacking Ceph technology and repurposing it to serve Humanity, if temporarily.

The question, then, is how the programming made by the Nanosuit to favour Human life, using both Ceph tissue to target Ceph organisms and the Tunguska Iteration to heal infected Humans, is going to react to organisms neither Ceph nor Human.

Of course, this only applies to Alcatraz, as any other Nanosuit, even 2.0, is not going to have the samples of Ceph tissue and spores or the Tunguska Iteration to achieve such a re-coding or be able to spread the spores to "alien" tissue. Even with Alcatraz, it seems likely that the spores have a very limited life, likely because Hargreaves didn't trust the re-coding to remain stable over a long period of time, unlike the Ceph which were preparing (with the Central Park spire) to unleash an contagious version of the spores, which would have eventually swept the planet clean of Human Life.

If Youkai were accepted by the re-coded spores as targets, then the spread of the infection would remain only those in close proximity to Prophet/Alcatraz, and the infected would not be contagious. The cellular breakdown would occur similarly rapidly as it occurred on the Ceph, (I suspect either the Nanosuit or Hargreaves realized that a fast acting would leave the Ceph no time to react to the re-coding). So, after a small period of incubation, during which the spores would replicate to reach critical mass within the infected subject, the infected would suffer a rather... gruesome breakdown. Keeping in mind that there would be no massive exposure as during the Time Square and Central Park events, the subjects would likely suffer from rapid but gradual necrosis and liquefaction of the tissues, starting from the site of contact with the spores. Seeing as "wet" tissues are favoured by the spores as infection vectors, I theorize that the subjects would die rather quickly as the breakdown progressed into the optical nerve to reach the brain. Speed of the reaction in Ceph subjects would suggest... minutes, maybe hours, between infection and subject death, unlike the original Manhattan pathogen which killed Humans in hours or days.

The Youkai would first have to realize what they are dealing with is not magic but an highly refined bio-weapon and then correlate exposure to Prophet/Alcatraz to infection to begin taking measures. Even then, the speed of death, as well as the adaptive nature of the spores (anti-virals quickly lost effectiveness against the progress of the infection), would likely leave even Eirin stumped as to how cure the plague, as she could literally end up running out of patients to try to cure in mere days and would be starting utterly in the dark as to how the disease works on the molecular level. War with Humanity, at that point, would be unthinkable for the Youkai as it would simply result in more exposure to Prophet/Alcatraz and the pathogen.

Of course, this entire scenario is based on severals "if"s, including that Prophet/Alcatraz be willingly or unwittingly releasing re-coded spores continuously. Which neither the game nor the novel suggest even once, since the Ceph had no problems coming into physical contact with Prophet/Alcatraz, even after the Time Square event.

As for Lunarians, thousands of years of absolutely no contact with the greater Human gene pool, the removal of "impurity" and thousands of years of inbreeding could result in a population that genetically no longer registers to the re-coded spores as "Human".

But that's an absolute worst, "I want to kill all Gensokyo and the Lunarians in a horrible way", "MAXIMUM Hitler" scenario. It's more likely both the Nanosuit and the re-coded spores would go "What the Hell is that gene code?", with the Nanosuit/SECOND adding "Get me more samples of that thing. I want to figure it out."
No. 3829
Well I can see how a Crysis crossover would do well, but even for universes that are "bigger", I'm sure you could easily get something out of a character. I would say the biggest surprises for them is the fact that they're in the past, if they're from a future timeline, and the fact that they're in a magical land.

For instance look at Halo there are many anonymous Spartans that could easily be used, or ODSTs, or marines. For all the fact it's space opera/military science fiction, the novels and EU really show much about characters and how they interact with others. There's even going to be a novel set after the Human-Covenant War that is, unfortunately, written by Karen Traviss.

People have also mentioned Star Wars or 40K and there many groups or organizations where a protagonist can come from. In most of these stories, the things about technology and setting are sort of a background for the characters.

Honestly I would say the only place where technology is really important is in genres like hard science-fiction.

I know I'd like to see Megaman, Protoman, Bass and a few others wandering around Gensokyo, with Megaman and Protoman doing the utmost to protect Humans from the rampages of both the Robot Masters and the Youkai agitated by said Robot Masters. The Laws of Robotics only cover Humans, bitches!

Not that Rock or Blues would go out of their way to kill Youkai, both are fairly pacifistic. The Robot Masters? Not so much.

A better idea would be Dr. Light and Dr. Wily continuing their bitter war to the knife in Gensokyo, with all the robots they created. Yes, including X and Zero. The Kappa would go absolutely nuts at the sheer mindblasting genius of the two old men. Light and Wily do things with robots that would leave even the Kappa's techno-magical contraptions in the dust.

People so often forget that, however awesome they are, Megaman and X were created by Dr.Light. That portly old man was, centuries after his death, still considered the absolute master of robotics, with his crowning achievement, X, still being the most sophisticated piece of hardware and software on the planet. And Dr.Wily wasn't that far behind him in talent or creativity. Introducing those two bitter enemies is the real game changer in Gensokyo. As well as how weird the fact of these two men considering their creations as their children would be to the locals, that would see only machines.

The author would, of course, be required by divine and universal law to write the story while listening to either the Protomen or the Megas. Search your feelings, you know it to be true.

They would find her rather quaint and primitive (likely while also being bemused by the magical components in her construction.). Then Light and/or Wily would modify(/replace the magical components inside) her with what they've got at hand and name the result Megagirl. Wily would perhaps help just to prove to the luddites exactly what technology can do. They'd also do away with the nuclear reactor inside her, as it is far too crude a device for them.

Because transforming household/housekeeping robots into unstoppable warmachines is what Dr. Light does best. That's how he ended up with Megaman, after all.

You'd inevitably end up with Dr. Wily in a Skull Fortress, while Dr. Light modernizes the Human Village and continues his work. He might even build more Reploids if we also bring along X and Zero. Protoman X and Roll X, anyone?

At first, I though it might be a good show. I mean, miko, youkai, and spiritual attacks and stuff? AWESOME.
And then, the big bad arrived, and it became "New barrier > must train more > new barrier". Fights became repetitive, and the love stories are too dumb.

Hell, what I want is the same story, but with fights similar to Jojo's, and no fucking love background story.

Not to long afterwards, Aya, Reimu, and Kirby got back to the Hakurei Shrine. "Wow! You sure came back fast!" Marisa said. "We were wondering what could've happened to the two of you since Dedede isn't in his castle for anymore."

"We weren't at the castle as well," Reimu said, "and I don't feel like going into details. Okay, what's the story here?"

Kirby looked at Meta Knight and said, "Hi, Meta Knight! Nice to see you!"

"There is no time for a friendly conversation, Kirby," Meta Knight said to him. "As you can see, the Dark Matters have been resurrected. Popstar is in danger of getting taken over by them again."

"Yeah, and I am very surprised to find out that they're back again."

"The Dark Star is closing in on Popstar even as we speak, so we need to make haste. Kirby, you have been to the Dark Star and fought 02 before, so you should know best when it comes to fighting him."

"Yeah, I faced that guy twice, so I know a lot about him. The first time I fought him, I used the Love-Love Stick, and I used the Power Crystal from Ripple Star during our second battle. I don't know what to use on him this time... I would need something that is as powerful as those two."

"There is something that is as powerful as those two. Does the source of dreams ring a bell?"

"Aha! The Star Rod!"

"Indeed! The power of the Star Rod is as powerful as those two, and I'm sure that the inhabitants of Dream Land won't mind if you borrow it from the Fountain of Dreams for a while."

"Okay! I'm off to the Fountain of Dreams!" Kirby said, and then he ran off as fast as he could.

"I'll go with you!" Meta Knight said, and so he followed him.

"Well, it seems like we have found a solution to this," Coo said, and then he looked at the sky to see that the Dark Star was coming closer and closer. "Let's hope that there is still time...

"Hey, what say we head over to the Fountain of Dreams and take a look as well?" Aya suggested.

"Not a bad idea," Reimu said. "We're used to getting involved in other worlds' affairs already, so we might as well lend a hand in saving this world." So the girls went after Kirby and Meta Knight.

Kirby and Meta Knight arrived at the Fountain of Dreams, and the pink puffball immediately flew onto the top of the fountain and grabbed the Star Rod. "Got it!" he said. "Now to use the Warp Star to go to the Dark Star!"

He took out a cell phone and pressed a button on it, and a few seconds after doing so, a large yellow star flew to him from the distance. It stopped in front of the fountain, and then Kirby jumped onto it. "I'm off, Meta Knight!" he said to the puffball knight. "Take care of everything here while I'm gone!"

"Good luck, Kirby," Meta Knight said to him.

"Wait a minute!" shouted the voice of Reimu. The duo turned to see the other girls, Gooey, and the animal friends running towards them.

"I'm in hurry," Kirby said to them. "We can talk again after I return. Wish me luck!"

"Actually, Reimu wants to go with you," Marisa said to him.

"If you don't mind, that is," Reimu said.

"You want to come with me?" Kirby asked. "But it's dangerous."

"Not like I've never faced danger before."

"I would recommend it," Remilia said. "Reimu's one of the best fighters in our world, so I would recommend that she accompany you in the fight against that guy named 02."

Gooey then jumped onto the Warp Star. "You want to come along too, Gooey?" Kirby asked him, and the black blob nodded as a response. "Okay! And Reimu, you can tag along too if you want to. I've seen you fight when we were in Dedede's dungeon, so I know for sure that you will be of great help!"

"Okay," Reimu said.

"Come aboard the Warp Star! It'll take us to the Dark Star in a jiffy!"

"Is there enough space for the three of us?"

"Oh yeah... Wait a minute," Kirby said. Both he and Gooey got off it, and then Kirby placed the star upright. "There! Hold onto it tightly!"

"Um... Hold onto it?"

"Don't worry! It's perfectly safe! You won't fall as long as you don't loose your grip, and it's not like the Warp Star is hard to grip onto! Here's how!" And he jumped at the star and grabbed onto the sides of the point at the top while Gooey grabbed onto the 'right arm' using his mouth.

"Okay... If you say so..." Reimu said as she held onto the side opposite of Kirby in the same manner. "You're sure that it'll be safe, right?"

"Trust me! It is safe! As long as you grip firmly, that is."

"You don't make it sound safe at all..."

"Good luck, Reimu! We're all counting on you-ze!" Marisa said to her.

"Do your best!" Sanae said.

"Thanks for the encouragement," Reimu said to them.

"All right! Let's get going! To the Dark Star!" Kirby loudly said, and then the Warp Star took off into the sky with a really fast speed, and everyone kept his or her eyes focused on it until it disappeared in the direction of the Dark Star.

"There they go," Meta Knight said. "It's all up to them now. Meanwhile, we should take care of the remaining Dark Matters in Popstar. 02's defeat will instantly end the lives of all the Dark Matters, but we should make sure that minimal harm is done to the inhabitants of Popstar before Kirby, Gooey, and that girl named Reimu succeed."

"I wonder how much harm you can suppress before they win," said a voice. Everyone turned to look at the source of the voice and saw The Emperor and Marx, who was bouncing on a ball, approaching.

"Who are you guys?" Marisa asked them.

Coo saw Marx and said in a surprised tone, "You! Impossible! You're supposed to be..."

"Dead," Marx said, finishing the phrase for him. "Heheh! Surprised, eh? I knew you would!"

"Kirby destroyed you a long time ago!" Rick said. "How are you still alive?"

"Maybe he's actually a relative of Marx?" Pitch said.

"Oh, you better believe it! I'm still alive and well!" Marx said. "To be precise, I have been brought back to life! Boy! It sure feels good to come back to life! Heheheh!"

Meta Knight pointed his sword at Marx and said, "I have heard of your evil exploits. I won't ask you how you came back to life, but I will ask you whether or not you still have intentions to take over Popstar, and who is this man with you?"

"I am Emperor Mateus, but you can simply refer to me as The Emperor," The Emperor replied. "We are here under the order of a certain person to persuade King Dedede to join our organization, but he turned down our offer. Whatever the case is, that's no longer important. We have actually convinced someone else to join us, and that person is currently on his way to Popstar. It would appear that your friends are one their way to fight him."

"You mean 02? You resurrected him, didn't you?"

"And what would you do if I say yes?"

"You people wouldn't happen to be from the same organization that is trying to take over the universe, right?" Aya asked The Emperor.

"You cannot be any more correct than that, young girl from another world. It would appear that the other members of the organization had problems with you girls. I'm surprised that you're all able to make it this far without losing anyone! I could've sworn that Sigma said he killed one of you, but it seems that all of you are still alive and well."

"That would be me," Alice said. "You can go back and tell him that I have a score to settle with him the next time we meet!"

"On the other hand, I prefer telling him that I have finished up what he failed to finish."

"Hmmm... From the sound of it, you're planning to fight us," Marisa said. "Not that I'm complaining, mind you."

"I wonder how far you girls will go if I let you live. However, I wonder how well you will fare against us as well."

"Heheheh! A fight is going to begin! A fight is going to begin!" Marx said. "It's going to be fun to watch! Heheheh!"

The girls and Meta Knight immediately got into fighting stances while the animal friends quickly moved away from the place. "I will not allow you to disturb the peace of Dream Land as well as laying a hand on them!" Meta Knight said to the two villains. "I have heard from them about your exploits as well, so I will not allow you villains to do as you want! This day shall mark the end of your lives!"

John Kirisame focused movemented out of the yard and squirted danmaku and flew. He kept flying down the forest path and made sure there was no fairies around because he didn’t have spellcard.

Well, I kind of agree with YAF on this one. I tried Mass Effect 2, and it was one of my biggest disappointement since Darksiders. The game was predictable ("oh boy, crates everywhere, it means enemies are coming"), repetitive (enemy, door, treasure, enemy), there are no enough weapons, no infiltration, nothing else than HURR DURR shooting. Also, the IA is totally useless ("take cover is for the weak"), the discussion phase are boring, with the characters being unpredictable ("hurr im a bad guy oh god please dont hurt me im suddenly a wimp").

It's an easy game made for console morons, with his interesting point being the decisions you can make.
But here's the problem: they don't affect the game. It doesn't matter if you kill and betray, the game will stay the game. You'll still have your team, go kick some collector's ass, hump Harbinger's dead body, and rape the collector's base.
The decision you can make are only making a difference if you're buying the third game. And yes, I'm talking about a 60$ game, not a 30$ expansion.

Oh, and if you manage to beat the game, you can restart it. You probably think "awesome, I can try being a bad guy, and I can try another class".
WROOOOOONG! You're forced to stay with the same class! If you want to try another class, you're forced to restart a new game. Hooray!

In short, Mass Effect is just pure shit. If you want a real game, you're forced to buy the whole pack, three games, for most probably 150$ (haven't checked, but given that Bioware are faggots selling DLCs for a game that's just out, I wouldn't be surprised if it was the case).

And if you love it, you probably enjoy repetitive games with a false liberty. Enjoy being free to ge anywhere you want, except that you can't land on a planet unless you have a mission to fulfill on it. Yeah! Enjoy moving your ship, shooting people, waiting for your health to regen magically, shoot, regen, shoot, regen, move, shoot, regen, and loop this until the game is over.

Each time knowing the truth about gensokyo? Permanent sanity loss. Learning danmaku? You are not a touhou, permanent sanity loss each time you learn it further. Sanity way below the quota?

This would be at best difficult, and probably nigh-impossible, to pull off even reasonably well.

>As she approached Mars swung his sword, Yuugi ducked and rammed into his chest with her head, bringing Mars down with her. The Drones rushed towards her to defend Mars, Yuugi was about to punch Mars until a spear jabbed her in the shoulder, the Oni grimaced and ignored it through pure adrenaline and her strength until another jabbed her other shoulder, Yuugi removed herself from him in pain, but then was jabbed in the stomach by a sword.

>Yuugi held the sword that was lodged into her stomach, blood formed and trickled from the wound, staining her t-shirt and rolling onto her skirt. "I'm an Oni it's going to take more than that to kill me!" She screamed at them, they responded and attacked, quickly overwhelming her with sheer numbers. The swords and axes hacked her violently before she could no longer fight back. The Drones continued the horrific assault while Mars watched as Yuugi fell to the ground defenceless.

>As Yuugi felt every axe, sword and spear blow, her vision clouded, the sounds of bloodthirsty Drones were muffled, her eyes slowly and forcefully closing for the last time, the injures her vital organs were taking could no longer keep up with the demand to continue living, all organs began to shut down or were forcefully by the swords

No. 8752
It would be better to cross over with a series with the same power levels already. Also, it's not balanced when a champion from one series is overrun by the other's mooks when canon power levels indicate that the champion is immune to their attacks.

For example, a Star Wars / Touhou crossover might not be unreasonable. Jedi aren't as physically durable as Touhou characters, but they would be really good at dodging. And spacecraft fights have been made the setting for shoot-'em-up games since the 1960s.

Hold up. I was fairly positive female mantises devoured the males’ heads (followed afterwards by the rest of the body) during copulation because apparently it speeds up the process + extra nutritients aid the female in carrying the eggs?
No. 9764
Early researchers thought that because copulatory movement is controlled by a ganglion in the abdomen, not the head, removal of the male’s head was a reproductive strategy by females to enhance fertilisation while obtaining sustenance. Later, this behavior appeared to be an artifact of intrusive laboratory observation. Whether the behavior in the field is natural, or also the result of distractions caused by the human observer, remains controversial.

>Mantises are highly visual organisms, and notice any disturbance occurring in the laboratory or field such as bright lights or moving scientists. Research by Liske and Davis (1984)[12] and others found (e.g. using video recorders in vacant rooms) that Chinese mantises that had been fed ad libitum (so that they were not hungry) actually displayed elaborate courtship behavior when left undisturbed.

YAF, forget that thing called "common sense".
No. 9780
It's a combination of factors...

Usually, mantises do have elaborate courtship rituals, which do not end in the male's death. However, in times of starvation, the male mantis actually allows the female to kill and eat him, because it would be worse if the female died of starvation before being able to lay their eggs.

Often early researchers would put the mantises in a relatively small enclosure, and thanks to not knowing enough about their diet, wouldn't feed them enough.

Humans are so big compared to mantises that, despite their relatively good vision for creatures with compound eyes (compound eyes don't work all that well), they perceive us less as "half-blind pink soft-skin" and more as "ENORMOUS HORRIBLE VAGUE WHITE GIANT MONSTER OH MY GOD HELP". While in a small cage with invisible walls and not enough food.

It's not surprising that the mantises' stress levels would be high enough that the backup mating procedure of "have sex less discriminantly, eat the male at the end" would kick in.

The grass looms over you, an ominous reminder of your relative size. Rasping your forelegs against a boulder, you look up only to see that the boulder is cut rectangular, and stacked with many other similar boulders in a stepwise formation. Further than that, you can make out the outer edge of a structure, one that enormous pale monsters come and go from. Below that, you can see a large rectangular thing made of tree-matter.
You are also kind of hungry. Mice usually congregate near these structures, and they would make a fine meal. However, you cannot bear the thought of confronting whatever dwells here.

Your digestive tract overcomes what little higher thought processes you had, and you decide to enter the monster structure.
You hop up the stack of rock blocks, using your wings to help you gain altitude. At the top of the stack, you can clearly see that the bottom of the structure is composed of tree-parts on top of more interlocking rock blocks. The large rectangular tree-matter thing sits in front of the larger structure. Maybe a shelter for a smaller monster?
You hear squeaking coming from the inside of the large structure. Mice! Your antennae confirm your speculation as the unmistakable odor of fur wafts from a direction forward and slightly to your left.
Mice aren't dumb, you need a plan, do you:

[]Approach quickly along the shortest route, don't give the prey time to escape.
[]Sneak along a more secluded route, mice can't smell you, so simply remaining out of sight would allow you to attack unnoticed.

[x]Sneak along a more secluded route, mice can't smell you, so simply remaining out of sight would allow you to attack unnoticed.

Taking care to keep some sort of obstacle between you and the source of squeaking, you carefully maneuver around, closing the distance. After climbing over a large, soft surface, you see the mouse consuming rice grains spilled from a large bag.

It hasn't seen you, yet.

Taking advantage of the shadows cast by the bag, you creep along the wall until you are on the other side of the it. You wait a few moments until the mouse turns it's back on you.

And then, you strike.

Quick as a lightning bolt, you leap onto the body of the mouse. Holding it down with your forearms, you sink your large mandibles into it's throat, tearing apart artery and bone alike. The mouse struggles a bit, but its pathetic resistance collapses as soon as you break its spine.
You click your mandibles together in celebration, and then proceed to gorge yourself on the mouse's flesh. While you eat, your senses dull a bit, so you didn't notice the monster approaching until the thumping could have been mistaken for the ground shaking.

You look up. The monster towers above you, it's loose hide appearing to be a combination of white and bright red colors. You can see its eyes staring straight at you with an intent focus.

[x] Cluck your mandibles.
Swallowing your fear, you cluck your mandibles at the monster, hoping that the threatening act would cause it to back off or something. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to notice, prefering instead to continue observing you.

Seeing no other, options, you resume feeding, looking up every so often to see if the monster is making any movements. After a few moments, it sets down the stick in its left manipulator and takes out a hollow cube from a container near the raised ground in the center of the area.You do not know what it is for initially, which made you feel all the more stupid when it comes down over your head, encasing both you and the dead mouse. A thin sheet slips under you and suddenly you are lifted into the air. A few seconds later, the container collides with a hard surface below, impacting your head against the ceiling and knocking you out.

When you wake up, you are briefly surprised at the shaking of your surroundings. That surprise quickly turns into horror as you realize what you are currently confined in.

You are in a wooden cage, you are familiar with this particular container made by the giants. Many of your friends have been seen trapped in these things and disappeared soon after, never to be found again among the tall grass and forest your kin inhabit.
The red-white is carrying the cage with its right manipulator, swinging it carelessly as it walks, which explains the shaking. You look beyond the cage, apparently the red-white is traveling through the long clearing the giants made in the forest. How ironic, to be so close and yet so far from your home at the same time.

At least the giant was nice enough to leave the dead mouse in the cage with you.

[x] Attempt to ascend to youkaihood.

Noting your hopeless situation, you ignore the delicious mouse and sink into despair. The giant will carry you to a place where it would properly feed on you, hopefully head first. You have no method of resistance against such an imposing entity, and the wooden cage you are in is far too sturdy for you to break through. Your despair washes you like the night, drowning you under its waves.

As you lie on the cage floor and let the darkness consume you, a feeling, not unlike a rush of warm wind, rushes over you. No, you would not submit so easily, it tells you. You are a praying mantis! The greatest of the insects! No matter how great the obstacle is, you must not give up. As the feeling flows, a bright light slowly begins to glow in the darkness, and you suddenly find yourself feeling a good deal more confident in yourself.

You follow the light, it is hard to tell at first, but as you draw closer you find it to be a massive, luminescent pile composed of dead snakes, mice, birds, insects, and many other creatures you consider prey, heaped up into a surprisingly intricate throne.

On top of the throne is a massive golden mantis, it is staring directly at you.

My child, your journey is not over yet, for the river of your fate has yet to flow into the ocean of souls. I shall provide you with one of three traits. Pick carefully
