Since there seems to have been an influx of newcomers lately, and their actions and behaviour has started to grate on the regular visitors of this site, once again Anon has risen in /blue/.

So, in order to help inform the newcomers of present and future, this thread will be a place for general board etiquette and other miscellaneous information to help the population as a whole. I apologize if there's any seemingly 'important' information I leave out at first, since I'm typing this off the top of my head.

Important Information

1) Emoticons are discouraged. Be they :(, or >.>, or ^_^, or even the dreaded xD, they are not required, and you will only be scorned and mocked for using them. You are able to post without them (I should hope), so if you absolutely must convey your emotional state, do so with words.

2) This is an imageboard for voting on, discussing and chatting about Touhou and Touhou fanfiction. *Actions* are not required, and are looked down upon. The only implied actions occurring in imageboard posts should be limited solely to story narrative and other creative writing ventures. Like emoticons, you will be mocked.

3) Posts made in the story boards, and in story threads, should try to stay on topic. Discussion related to events of the story are fine, and chatter about various other facets of related material to the story is acceptable as per author's judgment. Prolonged shitstorms over things not related to the story at all are naturally not acceptable, and will result in post deletions at best, and temp bans at worst. No one wants to see posts between two or more anons bitching at each other over nothing.

3a) Sometimes, arguments over various actions within the story context can spark up due to conflicts in personal interests and how votes made to cater to a particular taste might oppose others. While they can be unavoidable, it's preferred to keep them at a minimum. Everyone has their own tastes, and surely they can clash at times when opposing groups have two differing views on what should happen, and these prolonged arguments can derail threads, and even cause the writers to lo

Ever had a great idea for a story that you weren't going to use yourself? In this thread you can share it with the world and see if anyone else thinks it's interesting. They can then write it or, at the very least, see if there's any interest for the concept/particular execution. In short, this exchange can help inspire others as well help see if there's demand for any particular kind of story.
See >>10975 and >>11677 for previous ideas that were shared.

Yyyyep. Seems I'll be your host again this year. If anyone has wondered where other contests and the prizes of the contests past are, well... it's been a bit of a rough year on my health.

Potentially concerning matters aside, it's that time again! It's time to dance and write and laugh and maybe read, too!

The entry period shall be 2 weeks in length, running from 8/13/18 to 8/27/18. Voting shall likewise run for two weeks, running from 8/27/18 to 9/10/18.

As per usual, the subject matter is up to you. The categories will be as followed: General, Newbie and Lewd.

I exclude lewd newbies on the grounds of lewds being strapped for participants as it stands. Winning a contest of one isn't exactly winning at all.

I'll offer crappy art prizes IOUs for the three winners, but I have other prizes I still need to dole out first and foremost, not to mention that I need to get back in the drawing mood. I just got over another illness or something and now my eyes have been strained for going on a week, which kinda really sucks in general. I think I've had almost 3 months of feeling like crap thus far this year. And it was only in 3 chunks. Kiiiinda sucks.

I hate to be negative to a community effort, but this was not the best showing. There's not much here I in good conscience can call "good." But votes are needed, so votes will be cast. Make do with what is there and so forth. Perhaps though there is a need for a short stop on contests for people to not be fatigued like this time?

Anyhow, my vote for non-lewd is [x] Blooming Friendship

I would have voted probably for the Kogasa one, but Kogasa is a little bit overrated for me. That short was more sentimental anyway and a little bit saccharine. Perhaps this Yuuka one could have been improved by stronger detail, but I prefer it somehow for its simplicity.

This is a little rude, but I want also to give the lewd part a [x] vote of no confidence

A 50-50 choice is hardly a contest and especially when neither are that appealing. Sorry to both entrants.

Many people won't change their minds as to what makes good writing from me yelling at them for their failings, so I will not do reviews. All I'll say is that THP needs to spend time reading more and better books in general. And stop trying so hard at comedy. The result is not often good.

[X] Message in a Bottle
I wanted to like some other entrants more. I think some other entrants are better. But ultimately, I enjoyed this particular story the most. A guilty pleasure, I'd call it - but that is still a pleasure nonetheless.
>> No. 15524
Elaborating on others should be something I do, probably.

> Blooming Friendship

I'm not really a fan of this sort of story but think it was put together well enough. By this sort of story I mean the story of someone who likes person despite person manipulating them.

> Message in a Bottle

Very interesting concept but the tone is rather all over the place, often feeling sentimental and then shortly thereafter absurd, which can be fine when gunning for "realism" actually because reality doesn't give a shit whether or not you're sentimental, but Marisa ends up fluctuating between like devastated and comically over-reacting. It's jarring.

> False Moon

Not my cup of tea. I think I get it, but it's not my preference.

As some of you might have noticed, the site has a new front page and the default style has been changed from photon to chernobyl on boards. This is to make the site more accessible to newcomers but you'll be able to change the style to something else, as always, from the drop down menu at the top of every page.

There's a few changes that I plan on making to the site, including adding better support for small screens such as those on tablets and phones. The front page already scales nicely but rehauling the dusty old board code is an undertaking that will probably take me a while. I'm prioritizing something else at the moment, which I think everyone will be happy about. Nothing as visually dramatic, before you complain, and I promise it'll be good.

I plan on tweaking the front page some more in the coming days, fixing a few spacing issues and padding. But if there's anything else that you want to suggest that needs improvement or tweaking, I guess this is the thread for you. I'll promise to listen and tell you why or why not I can or cannot do something.

I'm also using the trip I use for writing as opposed to the admin identity because honestly it's less of a hassle not having to log in every time to post.

Oh wow, you're right. I have absolutely no idea where I got "novophobic" from. I made a mental note to spell it that way because I'd never seen "novo-" before, and the place where I read it stuck in my mind well enough to track it down again... but it says "neophobic", and always has.

Next thing you know I'll be living in an igloo and freezing frogs all day.

In the interests of keeping the recs thread clean and limited to recommendations, let's bring all other discussion of stories here. Want to have a protracted argument about why writer x is a faget who should die in a freak kitchen accident? Fire your shots here. Want to complain about story y not having enough (or too much, if you're a sissy) grimdark tentacle death blood rape? By all means, make your voice heard here. Just keep it germane to THP stories and we're all good.

Disclaimer: This is my personal guide on how to write and any tactics that I employ may not work for you and if you think I’m some authority on writing magical girl literature, you’re a fucking loonie. Also, any advice I give is worth jack shit because I don’t follow my own advice over half the time.

If you know me from *this* name you're probably one of only a handful of people - and so I can guess pretty easily who you might be.

That said, definitely planning out something. Not sure how amazing it'll be, but I'm using a process that should hopefully bring better results than just vomiting from head to paper, so I'll see how it goes.

We've been without one of these for almost ten months. Time to revive the tradition!

What have you been reading lately? What do you recommend to your fellow THPers?

Yo I'm not gonna lie but I really liked Moral's gay wizard x succubus smut. I'm on mobile so I can't be assed to find the link but if you search Wholesome Succubus Quest on suptg you'll find it. It's about a succubus trying to fuck a gay wizard and that's pretty much the whole plot. The greatest thing is the smut isn't even the best part of the quest. It's the comedy. If you liked his purple prose lewds you'll like this.

A huge self-shill (shillself?), but Kurodani Yamame Has No Gods ended just last week. So, if you feel like reading something start-to-end, break your legs. Eyes? Break your eyes.

Sick, so not in the mood for lengthy explanations. Sorry.

Anyways, as the previous year is over, I suppose I need to start the next with a "dammit not another contest".

Declare your resolution and keep to it as best you can. That's the name of the game. Sorry about being so late on starting it, but I woke up at the server's midnight, making me late by default.

I want to at least get a good chunk into that before digging into something else.

Super late, but my New Year's Resolution is to finally start writing here. I have a couple of ideas since a while but I've always postponed starting them.
I'll do it this time. For sure.
>> No. 15330
Now that I'm starting to feel less contagious, I suppose it's time I make my own resolutions.

1: I want to finish No Such Thing as Ghosts.
2: I want to make good on the prizes for my recent contests. I've been far too lazy, and it's unacceptable, no matter what state my head was in overall.
3: I want to continue Eastern Tale and Dark Tidings after I finish NSTaG.
4: I want to start making contests again. I will put this on hold till I have doled out prizes for the last two, however.


I look forward to seeing what you write! I hope to see you succeed in your desire! It's a lot of work, but never a dull moment!

Well, unless you refresh every 5 minutes waiting for votes. But that is to be expected if you do that.
