I shall erect this meager fence here. The walls will come later, though obviously of a different material.
[x] Try to draw and time Yuuka's projectiles so they hit Chiri.
You certainly weren't expecting another contender, but her attacks will be a great help regardless of her intentions. Chiri's already recovered, so you charge her immediately. The attack is blocked without effort, but that doesn't concern you. A new wave of toast is launched at your seemingly unprotected back. With a bit of quick footwork, you trade places with your nearest opponent and use her to block the barely edible bricks. Quite a few pieces struck her spinal column, stunning her momentarily. Is Yuuka trying to mortally wound you?!
Marisa, not yet privy to your plan, redirects her fire toward Yuuka in an attempt to help. (Un)fortunately, her attack meets Yuuka's opened parasol and dissipates. The ghost herself is unfazed and continues to barrage you with the lethal grain. Grain that you continue to evade in ways that leave Chiri unable to do the same. Even when she begins to understand your plan and dodge with, you strike her into the very thing she dodged. With the battle persisting like this, it's understandable that the false ice fairy is on her last leg after a few minutes.
The next part is almost a complete blur to you. Sick of your antics, Yuuka resorts to tossing an entire overly toasted bread loaf at you. As soon as it leaves her hands though, Marisa's Final Spark overwhelms the defense of her parasol and blows her away, giving the loaf more spin and momentum in the process. On top of that, Chiri preempts you by tossing you overhead headfirst toward the evil toast. It's all you can think up in two seconds, and it hurts your hands greatly, but you slam the loaf down as soon as you reach it. Just before it hits the ground, one of Yukari's gaps opens on the ground near it. Who should come charging out of the portal but Momiji leading with her shield raised. Noticing the bread and thinking it to be a person, she puts all her might into bashing it with her shield. It's sent flying with even greater speed into Chiri's undefended face, easily breaking her nose and giving her a serious black eye.
You don't get any time to wonder why your girlfriend's here, or how she managed to steal the glory literally right from under you. At the end of your flight path lay one Marisa Kirisame. You attempt to call out and warn her, but your skulls make contact long before the words leave your mouth. Her head's driven back into the ground from the impact while you fly off and faceplant into the outer wall of her house. Momiji, being the only one still present and conscious, looks around in utter confusion. She just came to help, but finds everything to already be over. She glances at the three unconscious bodies around her, then pops her head through the gap to have Yukari call Eirin.
You wake up on a somewhat familiar bed and notice your very familiar white wolf observer. At least, you think it's Momiji. You've got a splitting headache that's blurring your vision and making it hard to concentrate. The hug you get from her confirms it, though. Your vision clears shortly and you notice the others in the room. Yukari's standing nearby, at her normal size for once. She's paying no attention to you and your lover, though. Rather, she's standing over the woman you'd been fighting before you were knocked out.
The bandages around Chiri's face hide the glaring injuries from that last "attack". She and Yukari have probably been talking this entire time, but all you get to catch is Yukari's desperate-sounding plea to take Chiri in. The girl in question glances over to you and makes eye contact. She just gives you an icy glare then quickly turns back to Yukari and begrudgingly accepts her offer. You're not sure, but you think you saw a slight red tint on her face before she turned away. Looks like your
harem circle of close platonic friends has gained another member.
Chiri is helped out of bed as a gap opens up behind Yukari. The two leave together, but not before the gap youkai tosses something your way. You catch it, and don't even need to look at it to know what it is and what it's for. You separate yourself from the extended hug. Not sure if you'll be able to word your feelings right, you opt for silently slipping the ring onto Momiji's finger. She answers your unasked question by all but ripping you out of bed to get a better shot at your lips. Caught by surprise, you peek at the other side of the room to find a still unconscious Marisa and a smiling Alice lightly giggling at the display before her. She gives you a thumbs-up, saying she'll get to work on the dress right away. You give her your own thumbs-up in response.
After you tied the knot with your wolf companion the years just flew by. It wasn't long before Momiji bore you a son and you became a father proper. The boy took after his mother, mostly. The only thing one could really see of you in him was a slightly darker hair color. He proved to be well-suited to the sword, however, and you made a point of teaching him all that you knew. He was truly talented and was able to match both you and Momiji in combat before he was fully grown.
Your daughters went on to lead fruitful lives of their own. A merchant at heart, Sofia teamed up with Nitori and started her own business. Besides helping the kappa with her inventions, they also took in orders from the rest of Gensokyo. They were so successful that they soon gained the support of both Eientei and the Moriya shrine. Penelope on the other hand, developed a thirst for action and adventure. She apprenticed under Marisa, accompanying her during youkai extermination, incident resolution, and "borrowing" sprees, becoming just as well known as the black-white herself.
Ah, but one mustn't forget the supporting actors of a production! Chiri was able to live peacefully with the Yakumos, who come to visit fairly often. Through her guidance, Cirno was able to ascend from merely being the strongest fairy to become one of Gensokyo's powerhouses. Yggy is still your ring, and he'll stay that way until you become a spirit. As for Yuuka, she eventually tired of tormenting you with toast-bricks. She now wanders Gensokyo, haunting random gardens and regularly trolling the masses with Shinki and Mima. She somehow even managed to mess with Hakugyokurou's vast gardens in some violation of common sense. Strangely enough, Yuyuko had no dominion over her.
You stop reminiscing like some old man and slide off the sturdy branch you'd been using as a seat. You walk back to the front of the shrine, finding the same chaos one normally finds at the summer gatherings. Loud voices, rampant drunkenness, numerous danmaku battles, the "quiet corner" with the more mature patrons, and all-around merriment. You find and take a seat by your family, receiving a sake dish. You take a sip and relax, enjoying the show and the wonderful company you'll have for many more years.
There you go, some kind of ending or something. Hope it's decent. Now then, finals and orange belt exams start tomorrow so I really need to study and stuff (for once). Later, anon.
