Goddamnit, you beat me to it!

Alright, like someone said before, this is now a place to bitch about Touhous you don't like.

Let me confess. I'm growing to hate Yuuka and Yukari the more I stay at the fandom. I hate how the fandom portrays those two as overpowered sons-of-bitches. Also, Yuuka as a psychopathic murderer and Yukari as a master troll. Yet I'm supposed to root for them. What the hell?

I have no problems at all with them in canon however.

There's Chen, I really dislike her, mainly because of the fandom ("honk honk" made me hate her), and also because she killed me a lot in PCB.
I also have a really soft spot for the lunarians, especially the ponytailed-one.

But the thing I regret most is the lack of stories about Renko and Maribel. ZUN pratically made them for speculation purpose, and they're ignored most of the time because they're not from Gensokyo. I know there are a few doujins about them going into Gensokyo, like Sotto's one, but most of them are more like "bringing Gensokyo outside", like RED-SIGHT's "One Shot, One Kiss", who brings Aya and Hatate in the Outside.
No. 8401
I kinda dislike those two personally, since I'm not buying into the Yukari=Maribel theory and I feel that their presence as canon Outsiders have no impact at all for Touhou lore. They feel like your usual OC Outsiders you know. Feels like a wasted opportunity.

I also have a soft spot for the Lunarians, especially the one who loves peaches.

The most interesting part is that Maribel's name is based on Lafcadio Hearn's. Hearn was an poor and irish hatless dude who lived in Japan, taking the name Yakumo Koizumi, and he became interested in Japanese ghost stories, before dying, still hatless.

With that, I was expecting some "Maribel is Yukari's daughter" theories, but no, it's always "Maribel is Yukari's evil double from outside".

Oh yeah, that's the game with the badass military veteran Reisen, right? Reminds me of the idea Taisa posted back then.

Also, in her backstory, her master (probably Toyohime since Eirin's still alive) got killed in some A.I. rebellion war on the Moon.

Oh well, that Reisen is fiercely loyal to the Lunarians for some reason, even willing to obey the command to murder the other crews of the ship.

Turns out it's a fake order though. It's the A.I.'s work all along.

... IS there a fanbase out there that gives outsiders no reason to despise them? Hell, you know how much I love FreeSpace and how much I respect the people behind FSO, but still #Hard-Light is chock-full of half-witted bigots.
Actual example: once someone brought up news of a scandal where some priest was caught on tape beating the shit out of his wife and daughter. Now, being myself, I asked jokingly: “who doesn’t nowadays?” which sparked a shitstorm of massive proportions that lasted no less than 5 hours into the night and involved even the channel’s opper’s wife coming on to spout her outrage at us. It was amazing, in a way. A very terrifying way. #THP is more chill, I guess, but some of the people there are still huge god damn cunts. #K-S is so deep a shithole I refuse to even come near it. And don’t even start me on #teamliquid or other e-sports channels.
Come to think of it the channels I hang out in are pretty cool, but none of them are fandoms per se. What the hell is it about liking one common thing that makes people turn into fucking morons?

Because they get obsessed about it, and then they don't accept any other interpretation of said things. It's the case with touhou, I guess it's the same with ponies, and then in fact it's the case with everything (pretty much why I stopped liking Umineko by the way).
Basically, as soon as you say "I disagree", you can be sure that people will get mad. Hell, it doesn't even matter if it's about game, sex, politic, or even which country has best food, people will just get mad about everything. And Internet makes it easier to be mad.

For example, if I say "football is a great sport", someone will soon barges in and screams "NO FUCK you football is for PUSSY and real men play AMERICAN football".
No. 8479
I always thought of the Watatsukis as a gift from ZUN to counter the usual powerlevel wanking in the fandom. But apparently, it's still not enough, since most people still think Yukari purposely lost to them in the First Lunar War. This is why I left the Touhou fandom back then, before returning when TD was going to come out.

Which is the main reason I like them I guess. That, and I like their character design.

Hey, I like you! You can come over to my house and- wait, no, not gonna make that reference.

So, in other words, those people are saying that Yukari lost on purpose twice against the Watatsukis, and yet they're still calling them mary-sues and moonbitches?
Isn't a Mary-Sue supposed to be perfect? If you're manipulated and humiliated, you're not really perfect, am I right?
No. 8481
Yeah. What's up with that logic?

Yep, that's the problem. Somehow people get mad really easily on the internet.

If someone says, "I don't like this thing because of reasons A, B, C, etc," on real life, you would probably get a response like, "Well, I like it because of D,E,and F, but I see where you are coming from. Perhaps our taste is just different."

In the internet however, you would get a response like this, "Those are the stupidest reasons I've ever heard for hating that thing. Your opinions are fucking worthless and you are horrible person for stating that."

I've heard that When They Cry was originally going to be a Touhou VN. Which explains a lot of When They Cry's supernatural character designs, really.

It occurs to me that the big difference between powerful youkai and other supernaturals from Touhou, such as Yukari, and Umineko's supernaturals, is that we actually see Umineko's supernaturals doing their horrible things to people, while with Touhou characters we're just informed about it in passing. (For example, how Yukari drops random outsiders into Gensokyo, where they will probably die horribly, for laughs, or how most youkai eat humans.)

...Now I want to see a crossover game. And I don't mean one of those danmakufu scripts where the Umineko characters are ridiculously overpowered.
No. 8486
those that say Yukari lost aren't the same as those calling the Lunarians mary sues. That and many don't even read SSiB. It doesn't help the only character in it to put up a remotely viable fight against Yorihime was Reimu.
No. 8491
Why is it that most stories that have humans who fear youkai make them the villains?

I think it's perfectly reasonable to fear powerful and potentially dangerous beings like them. And they're what Gensokyo needs anyway.
No. 8492
Because people don't like those who hate their pure and perfect youkai waifus.
No. 8495
people with such opinions once they get their hands on some power, would start a chain event that would not end well for both youkai and human.

No. 8496
Rinnosuke's presence proves that, sometimes, a human can fuck (with) an youkai and get away with it.
No. 8497
It depends on the story actually.

If the main focus of hate is weak youkai like Wriggle and Mystia, of course you can't exactly expect the readers to sympathize with the humans.

But if the story starts bringing in the likes of Flandre, Yuuka, Mima, and other strong youkai and it portrays them as really strong (like having the capability to destroy a small country if they're serious), then you can sympathize with those anti-youkai humans since they have a legitimate reason for fearing them.

I still don't quite get the meaning of that article.

So there's this secret society that wants to discover the secrets of Gensokyo for the future where Gensokyo falls under human control. So Keine makes a history school to prevent the dangerous ideas coming from that society to spread.

It's also interesting that Keine is what Reimu is supposed to be. Reimu is too close to the youkai nowadays.

Is that it?
No. 8504
That’s basically the gist. But the important thing to mark is, there are people with reasonable views in Gensokyo; they merely don’t possess any significant sway at this time. Keine, whether it is a conscious choice or a coincidence, has employed means of preventing these magnificent ideas from reaching the majority’s ears. But we are humans. The thing about us is we are capable of multiplication. Youkai are not. We have driven them from the “ouside word,” we will drive them from this one also.

They're trying to dig up some sort of secret that allows them to tilt the balance towards humans. But they often put their lives at risk for it as they go digging in places full of youkai.

Talking about Mima, here's some fanboyish posts about her.

>Which naturally means that the fans, myself included, basically revere Mima. No, seriously, if there's a character who Touhou fans genuinely respect, it's Mima. Every single Touhou game that's released is accompanied by hopes and speculation that Mima will finally make her reappearance.

>Another thing that the fans agree on is that Mima is probably really, really powerful. Being the original final boss of the series once it went to proper shooter format after the Arkanoid-style first game will do that. And considering that Marisa is pretty strong, ergo her teacher must be even stronger. A perfect example of this is the Touhou Soccer game. Heaven knows why, but a game with the Touhou cast playing Soccer was produced.

>With fully-animated cutscene attacks. Mima's Twilight Spark has become something of a fan-meme ever since. I mean, holy poo poo, just look at that thing.

>Touhou fans love Mima, and basically any fanwork will be regarded as awesome if it has Mima in it. It's like a formula: Instant Awesome, Just Add Mima. Even the subpar or outright bad fanworks can at least be said "Well, at least it has Mima" in their defense.

>Now, don't get me wrong, but I don't like seeing Mima as this broken-down, shattered spirit I love the Twilight Spark version of her- that world-consuming, universe-destroying megalomaniac who's willing to shatter the Boundary of Gensokyo for the sake of winning a football game. A force of nature, instead of just another player character, you know?

Now that I think about it, it is. Since it's not going to change anything, it's better to rage about something else than THP's best writefags. My apologies.

Gonna quote urban dictionnary with this one:

If they weren't popular, there wouldn't be any controversy, as anyone would agree to just kich them out.

And I personally think that it's better to have an decent update speed with an average plot rather than a rare update speed (LIKE PATCHWORK) and an interesting plot. But that's just my opinion.

Not commenting on your actual opinion, either way, but you're doing that thing some people do where they equate "popularity" with "quality".

You don't want to do that.

If you want to claim something to be the best thing since sliced bread, that's fine, but don't defend that claim with the one thing that has virtually nothing to do with the quality of the story. Cite things that actually make the story good. The characterization, the pacing, well-written narration, snappy dialogue, whatever. Not only does that actually support your claims about the story's quality, but it displays that you actually appreciate the story based on its merits.

Yeah, I really don't see how anyone could be deluded enough to consider Hartmann popular or one of the best writefags. His writing is atrocious and he seems to have few followers.

This, so much. If a story has a sufficiently low-quality (or just desperate) fanbase, absolutely crap stories can retain large numbers of followers. Kahi's one of the best examples of this.

About YAF, he's the only one of the three listed that actually knows how to write, even if his style's hard to get used to. And I'm pretty sure about 90% of his posts (like >>8598) are joking, just people take them seriously. Not the best writefag, but a good one.

As for criticism, if you have something to say, go right ahead. I’m very open to criticism, as long as it’s not something that’s my conscious stylistic choice. I’m here to have fun writing stories; you’re here to have fun reading them. Why, if there’s something that bugs you and prevents you from fulfilling that goal, why not simply talk about it with me/your favourite writefriend oops, a little repetition here.

All this whinging and whining could be lessened if the ones harbouring a huge throbbing problem somewhere down the ass-end of their pants would just have it out with the one who stuck that problem there in the first place. You don’t want it there? All right, I’ll pull it out. That is, if it doesn’t clash with my own artistic vision.

This, in fact, applies to every writefriend on the site. You see something about their bing-a-boo-dooby-loo you think might use some improvement, you just bing-a-boo say it.

And yes, I’m aware others might not share this attitude, but it’s always worth a try, isn’t it? This is the beauty of interactive fiction: the readers are also capable of providing input. And you’re wasting that time you could spend telling your favourite writefriend how he’s the “loveliest thing to walk the ding-a-bong BUT...” posting in a thread that doesn’t even have a bloody OP image any more.

>Yeah, I really don't see how anyone could be deluded enough to consider Hartmann popular or one of the best writefags. His writing is atrocious and he seems to have few followers.
I never consider myself as popular or good. I know that I'm not a good writer (hell, I already have trouble understanding a simple discussion, it's a miracle that I can write), but I still keep on, because I like writing.
And for the arrogance, that's not entirely true. When I first joined the website, I expected Anon to tear me into pieces immediately, but that's not what happened. People nicely suggested things( like using " instead of >> stuff like that), and, even if my story was atrocious, I still finished it. It's after my first story's end that I became arrogant and that I disregarded criticism (shame on me).

I know I'm still considered as very arrogant, but, quite frankly, I prefer being arrogant than being a doormat. And, beside, that's not true. I'm not that arrogant. Well, except when I'm dominating you at TF2. In such a case, yes, I'm arrogant, yes, I'm mocking you, yes, I'm killing you with a solemn vow. But that's not the point here.

And for the writing, well, sorry about that, but I'm still trying to improve.
Also, quit calling me hartmann, for hell's sake.

The Five Magic Stones have it even worse. They've only even been mentioned maybe twice, and never appeared; but they seem to me like more of a static defense, the likes of which you'd see more often in another shoot-'em-up series, than a character, so that's not so bad.

THP is an elitist website, where only the best writers are allowed, but the high rate of dropped/abandoned stories is just a goddamn shame!

All you gotta do is bloopity-boo into dooga-zoo, up the oompa-doo to wompy-dee-blop-goo.

Or a) find the writefriend in question and reignite his passion for the story (interpersonal contact is very effective in this case because it’s much more direct a way of showing you like the bumpy-ding than voting or even expressing it in a post, and as I have once mentioned in one of these threads, we writefags like to be patted on the heads), or b) read stories whose authors aren’t patently prone to nervous breakdowns/bouts of irrational anger and/or assault from mighty-morphin’ doompy-zords.

Of course, if you go with a) and can’t get the bastard to BLOODY WRITE AGAIN YOU SON OF A BITCH, then it was probably a case of not-liking-it-from-the-start as explained above. Or a mental disorder. Whoop!

I never said it had to be praise, dudeski. Just give him some nudge through private channels that you’re still waiting: the direct personal contact (as direct as the internet gets) might just make him feel obliged to leastwise give it some thought. Wriggle your fingers all evil-geniusy-like and practice some MIND CONTROL psychological manipulation. Alternatively, draw him into a discussion about the story you want continued. Give his brain a kick-start and make it come up with a few ideas he’ll feel drawn to putting into words. Often-times we write simply because we have this absolutely brilliant idea, never-before-seen golden pile of poo no one’s ever shat out before and we’re the first and only, the pioneers of a new age, by honour and duty bound to show it to the world, and we’re compulsively made to do just that.
Half of the previous sentence was a lie. You’re NEVER original. About the best you can do is do better/reach a wider audience with an idea someone’s already had before you.

>Memoria in Discord
MiD wasn’t a story, it was a weekly “now which oldish film do I quote” I pooped out each week with little to zero forethought. Quite literally the only scene I’d thought about prior to getting to it was “shooting with Kaguya,” and that wasn’t even a scene, just a very general concept. I’m sorry, but that’s what it was. Spoiled for stupid bloggery-boop because you won’t leave me alone otherwise: It was a stressful period for me (living alone for the first time, coping with serious health problems related to the climate [I’m a SRS meteopath, remember]), I needed something as an outlet and writing was the only available non-violent option (other than copious amounts of alcohol coffee and sweets poorly-cooked spaghetti). I don’t reckon I ever pretended otherwise, bah, I always said it was “about Mokoutits,” and that’s basically what it was. Old films and Mokoutits. Nothing more. Maybe less.
Once again, if you thought it was something else, I’m sorry, it wasn’t. Once my body calmed down and I got over the initial troubles of living on my own, I started TiTS, which is actually thought-out and has an actual romance characterisation Tenshi breasts plot. At that point it seemed to me MiD had outlived its purpose and forcing its continuation would be an insult both to myself as a writer and my readers (fooling them into thinking it was an actual story). I’ll have to redirect everyone who asks about MiD in the future to this post. Sigh.

As for TiTS, if I drop that one, it’ll be either because I’ve turned into a zombie and am too busy chomping on mans, or because a tracking band of Galician haters have ambushed me in a dark alley and ruined my butt to the point of incapability to sit on a chair that hasn’t been padded with a dozen pillows in the least. Otherwise, it will never die (naa, naa, naa, naaah, welcome to the world and all that rubbish); and yes, I know it’s harder to read, but holy shit I’m having FUN writing it, I really am. I don’t know if you read it, and I certainly won’t push you into trying it because, frankly, that’s your choice, but if you find the style too hard to bear, I can provide you with a hint that should make it significantly easier to get to work.

About your stuff...

Do you know what in This Shrine made me rage?

It wasn't killing Mima twice.

It wasn't the incest with a hated person on the second route.

It wasn't youkai auto-resurrecting in the same body like fairies when there's no canon evidence for that.

It wasn't any of the other generally rage-worthy moments that people would normally complain about.

It was that you made Mima slow and Yuuka fast.

In every game Mima has appeared in after HRtP, which wasn't a shoot-'em-up, a defining trait has been her speed; she even has a speed-based ramming attack in SoEW. She's faster than anyone else in Mystic Square and shoots high-speed bullets, and in PoDD she's faster than everyone except the science-powered-pseudomagic-wielding bosses, who are overpowered.

Whereas Yuuka?

Yuuka's slow. She's the slowest playable in Mystic Square and Phantasmagoria of Flower View. She's not the type to dodge out of the way of an attack, she's more of the brute-force fighter.

Also, you messed up the power levels a bit. Sure, silver knives can hurt Mima. And Yuyuko. But to even get her to the point where she would take the fight seriously, Reimu had to bombard her with enough seals to kill a freaking tank several times, and the seals are better against youkai (including ghosts) than they are against tanks. And don't say it was the spell card system, because that game, Story of Eastern Wonderland, was before the spell card system. I mean, if it was handwaved as a magic knife or something, it would be fine, but one regular, silver knife is not enough to take out even one tank, (even with someone with superpowers wielding it, silver's too soft to cut steel,) so it's not enough to take down Mima.

And furthermore, Reimu can canonically beat the crap out of Yuuka, spell card system or none. Because, you know, she did that. And don't say Yuuka was just playing, because of the events of Reimu's endings. I won't say what happened, but it wasn't a tea party, and Yuuka would have avoided them by any and all means available to her.

Also, Yuuka's not really much of a magician. Her original Master Spark and everything she uses in Lotus Land Story are youkai power, not magic. That one's not really directed at YAF specifically as much as it is directed at anyone who calls Yuuka's powers magic, though.

However, I must commend you for actually seeing through not one, but three complete runs of that CYOA, an impressive feat when most authors only manage one at most. Of course, crossing those runs over ultimately sped their downfall...

Check your good endings again. Yumemi and Shinki were the only two PC-98 end bosses who weren't sealed, though. Especially look for doors and bottles.

There was no Makai holocaust. Shinki attacked the player for rampaging through Makai, and there are scenes of destruction in the backdrop for her final attack (seemingly the result of her prior attack), but Shinki was the first endboss Reimu had a tea party with.

Just because they were sealed doesn't mean they stayed sealed. Mima escaped, and Yuuka was released. Sariel and Konngara, however, have never been seen.

The underdogs of Gensokyo are kedama, Evil Eyes, and miscellaneous stage youkai. Maybe fairies, too, but fairies have that whole immortality thing. The average Gensokyo human is stronger than the average youkai, and it's stage enemies that make it that way.

I refer to PMiSS's article about the human village: "Moreover, as there are humans who work as youkai exterminators in the village, it is possible to lead a safe life here" and I also refer to an unsourced article on the wiki that says: "humans from the land of Gensokyo are physically similar to humans in the outside world, but are remarkably different in terms of abilities and their dominance over land. In ancient times, brave humans, who knew how to deal with supernatural entities, traveled to a youkai-infested area that we now call Gensokyo. They settled there in order to watch the youkai and keep them from terrorizing the rest of the countryside. These capable humans battled the youkai often" and also "today, the normal Gensokyo human is probably a little more powerful than the average youkai".

Th-then, how about Nitori? She's pretty cute and she has the shyness thing going on. People like that, right? All she's had was Science! and that wasn't even very good (no offense Klaymen). Come on, she has that mysterious key, someone could build a story around that, right?

Anything at all.Except for Aya, she's too popular already. Seeing /youkai/ in its current state is bringing me to tears.

Why don't you try writing something, then? I'd definitely follow a story with a prominent Nitori / Aki sisters, and /youkai/ readers are starved enough that they'd likely cut you some slack even if you're an inexperienced writer.

It won't be both. It's either the Akis, either Nitori, but you can't write a story about both, because they're completely differents.
Hell, I'm not even sure kappas believe in gods. I know the tengus does (even when 'believing in god' means 'getting drunk with said god', if MoF is serious about that), but since the kappas are all about science, they'll most likely kill gods by not believing in them.

It'll end up like Spacebattles where the readers are actually the ones making the story instead of the writers.

Writefags there really follow what the readers want. Like that male Yuuka story for example. That Touya harem story exists because the readers take a joking quote from Yuyuko and run with it.

It's a bad idea to start writing a story if you don't have any idea on how it'll be when it's finished. A second MiG, anyone?

Believing in gods and science aren't mutually exclusive in the Touhou universe. I mean a god was the one who tried to set up a nuclear reactor in the underground after all. Science involves studying what's around you, and that includes divinities if there are any, which there verifiably are in Gensokyo.

When there's a pic about the Touhous alongside characters from other series (especially the ones from Type Moon), most of the time there will be comments on how the Touhous will totally own the characters from the other series.

You know, looking at the old threads, it seems THP has gotten soft nowadays. No more sagebombing, imagedumping, or trolling bad writers.

Still remember that JtotheE incident. His thread got sagebombed to hell. Even Kapow approved.

I'm still amazed how Hartmann managed to survive when he first started. His grammar and spelling were atrocious and he refused to get proofreaders. Where's anon back then? Was he the new Saguya?

The first two were never allowed and I recall people getting banned for it. The latter sometimes still happens but it's usually just one or two people who can't let go. Technically not allowed either.

And crossovers, in general, tend not to be good. I'm sure that a great writer can do good things with them but all of the crossovers on the site haven't been good so far as I'm concerned.

No, he uploads one or two videos per two months (damn you Glasnost update speed!)

As for the chapters, it should end at Chapter 8, just like Mother 3. At the very least, Chapter 6 should be about getting the needles, except the last one of course. That will take place in Chapter 7. Chapter 8 is probably the epilogue.

By the way, I bet the final dungeon will be at Yukari's gap dimension or something like that (but that will be boring). Or on the Outside World (Touhous on skyscrapers!) but that would take some plot twists to do.

That would imply Kahi's anywhere as good as Demetrious. He's not.

but that was the tradition with bad or unfavored writers and not much punishment was given unless done against a writer with some favor among anon or the influential ruling council.

The move really hurt /youkai/ though to be honest other boards are suffering from famed writers leaving it.

but it's a sign of the real problem: not enough new writers in these boards. Most new writers clog up /th/ for "more readers".

Faulty as it takes alot more for a story to stand out there and the fact that due to all the low quality stories, the reader quality is below that of most other boards.

Okay. So we agree that Kahi will reach quantity. But problem is, that people won't agree about quality.
(Besides, I honestly wonder if Kahi has as many updates as Lion. Because Kahi's readers are posting quite often, and they enjoy posting about everything.)
