Hey there! THP’s birthday is in a couple of days and there's plenty of cause to celebrate it. It's a good excuse to look back some and an even better one to look ahead a bit. Forgive me for being a little circumspect but I hope you’ll take the time to read this post and properly give me feedback since it’s essential to the future of the site and worth being just a little bit verbose about it.

First, with people joining and leaving our community all the time, I can’t assume that everyone is familiar with the administrative history of the site. I feel it’s worth going into a few details about how the site works and how we’ve gotten by this far. A few of the following paragraphs should help you understand the basics. That said, feel free to skip ahead to the red sentence in this post if you know all this already.

A little over nine years ago, the first real choose-your-own-adventure story featuring touhous suddenly appeared on 4chan. A few weeks later, for a variety of reasons, it found a new home on a little-used imageboard with the domain touhouproject.com. From there, others where inspired to create their own stories and soon every board on the site had at least one active story on it. This went on for some time until the person who ran the site could not be bothered to host it anymore. And the site died.

The THP community had grown quite a bit by then, and there was a lot of discussion as to what would happen next. It became clear that the only way that these stories would be able to continue was if someone else hosted the site elsewhere. This was because the owner of the old site was not interested in selling or giving away the touhouproject.com domain. As a result we had to settle for the touhou-project.com domain which, we reckoned, was close enough. In the meanwhile, quite some time passed with the original site looking completely dead despite having an active IRC community. All in all, it was a painful transition that saw the loss of many users but it was also one that for the first time allowed people from the touhou community to be in control of the site’s fate.

Welp, that's enough to fund the server twice over. Good job.

Thanks for the explanation wall. This helps my to-read list a lot. I still have to read Flight of the Lost Soul, Tenshi is in This Story, Superstitious and Cowardly Lot, Fairy on Scarlet Lake, Animating Gensokyo and An Excuse for an Excuse for Aya with the prequels. So yeah I have lotsa stuff to read. I've already read (or I'm reading) the other ones and I agree, Keymaster's stories are all amazing, along with many others like SDM:LA, Pathcy Quest, Scorn's story in /forest/ etc.

>>14753
Ah well ok. I'll go with Patreon then. Paypal is really full of bullshit for this though.

As the author of both, yeah, that first one is definitely Favors Owed. The other one is Compensation Adequate. It was... my first real attempt at a story. Couple great moments in a literal sea of shit!

On a more thread-related note: I'm glad to have the opportunity to give back to the site that's given me so much, now that I have the means to do so.

It's that time of the year again, and love is in the air! To celebrate, let's focus on the bad part! Yes, that's right: rejection, failed confessions and all things bad about Valentin's Day!

Now, the rules of the contest shall be rather simple: no holds barred, as many entries as you like, and let's see if we can have a better voter turnout than last time! Ohh, and entries should be anonymous. I'm likely going to toy with other options next contest, but, as things currently are, we're going anonymous again!

Deadline is still up in the air. It shall be one of two dates: either February 14th 00:01, or February 28th 00:01. In the end, I took the feedback on monthly contests into account, and we shall be having one every other month, with a month to vote, give or take. As of right now, start your engines, but we need to discuss when to end the contest on.

Voting shall, of course, end on March 31st 00:01. I felt that the winter contest was too short, and at least one person didn't make it in time to vote. As such, I figure that if I just say screw it and make the entirety of the time between contests a voting period, we shall get more!

Categories shall be Lewd, Normal and Lunatic Soul-crushingly Depressing! The first two shall be the main distinction, but the third applies to both categories! I figure I'd test an idea I had. Each contest will have a flavor category to liven things up. I noticed the fun th

Thanks to Keine Kamishirasawa the Internet Archive, we are granted the access to an almost complete history log of our site. I thought of sharing this for the ones who are relatively new here, like me. Let's start, shall we?
Notice: all the backups before the address change have the page code not saved properly, aka with no formatting and css. Don't know why.


- Apparently, before being a Touhou only CYOA/discussion site, touhouproject.com was a place for sharing all kinds of doujin/anime material through torrent, with a Touhou section: http://web.archive.org/web/20070502184709/http://www.touhouproject.com/
- That went on until june of 2007, when the site disappeared (http://web.archive.org/web/20070623142517/http://www.touhouproject.com/) and was then put under construction (http://web.archive.org/web/20070921182022/http://www.touhouproject.com/).
- The site as we know it - kinda - saw the net's light on the 8th of january 2008, according to the admin's first message on the homepage: http://web.archive.org/web/20080112115311/http://www.touhouproject.com/. Interesting are the TouhouTube and Releases sections. Almost all them are saved, just go and browse around.
- The site went on during 2008 and 2009 (http://web.archive.org/web/20090803100351/http://www.touhouproject.com/) until middle august, when the site dies (http://web.archive.org/web/20090822050540/http://www.touhouproject.com/) and stays dead (http://web.archive.org/web/20090918084911/http://www.touhouproject.com/)

- THP revives on the 1st of september 2009, under our current domain (http://web.archive.org/web/20090908185556/http://www.touhou-project.com/). Also the infamous /coriander/ board is added during that period, the first of many addictions - http://web.archive.org/web/20090415000000*/http://www.touhou-project.com/coriander/. That's pretty much the site's general history.

There are a couple of very interesting threads in the post-revival /gensokyo/ section of the site (http://web.archive.org/web/20090930151449/http://www.touhou-project.com/gensokyo), in particular these ones:

- http://web.archive.org/web/20090923141810/http://www.touhou-project.com/gensokyo/res/806.html#852 and http://web.archive.org/web/20090907164223/http://www.touhou-project.com/gensokyo/res/1468.html give an explanation about why the domain switch happened.
- http://web.archive.org/web/20090907163000/http://www.touhou-project.com/gensokyo/res/932.html is a huge recap of all active writers/stories during that period.

The general timelines are here:
- Old domain: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.touhouproject.com/
- Current domain: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.touhou-project.com/

Thanks Keine Internet Archive. It was nice knowing this place's story. Probably part of you

You know what we need? A contest, of course! Christmas, snow-ins, snow days and all things that make winter wonderful and/or bleak and terrifying.

Rules are mostly the same as the yearly contest: deadline is 00:01 on the 1st of January, and you can make as many entries as you like. Anonymously, of course.

Also, don't be the guy that votes on their own stuff.

Anywho, categories are Porn, Newbie and Veteran. If you think yourself a newbie, novice, or just generally aren't confident in your writing, go write there. It's a contest, so don't be afraid to write, even if you're not the best.

Characters can be whoever! Doesn't matter, really. Just make sure it's taking place in winter, more or less. I'm mainly doing this to drum up more activity on the site. Expect more contests to come, though the next one will be less short notice.

Thread links coming shortly!

Did you have any comments for the authors? Even if it's late, I'm sure those would be appreciated.
I wrote the newbie entry. I've only written one other story on this site, and it was for the last contest. Once again I ended up writing something at the very end, rushing to get it done. I wasn't planning on writing anything for this contest, but I wanted there to be at least one story in the newbie category. If I knew I would get one more vote than the other stories I probably would have spent more than a minute thinking of a title. I thought up the idea for a story like this a while ago when I was sick, after I finished reading curiosities of lotus asia. Next time I write something I'll put more thought and effort into it. Still, this was fun.

I wrote Winter's Warmth. My goal was to create a work that perfectly encapsulated certain feelings, so I'm glad that the execution of that worked out for most of you. I don't mind that it's a little predictable. Thank you all for your feedback, and congratulations to everyone who wrote for the contest! You're all winners to me.

It doesn't feel like it's been a year, but it's August once again. And, since no one else has made any mention of it, I suppose I'll get the ball rolling in starting this year's annual contest!

As usual, EVERYTHING MUST BE SUBMITTED ANONYMOUSLY. Breaking this rule WILL result in disqualification. The deadline is the 16th of September, 23:59 GMT, AKA site time, because I'm not seeing much reason to break from tradition here. Submissions after the deadline will be disqualified.

There's a two-post limit per entry, as usual. They must be obviously connected with each other, preferably with in-thread links.

After the last annual contest's newbie turnout of nil, I'm also trimming categories down to just Regular and Lewd. However, because at least one chucklefuck always makes comedy porn, I'm also instituting the bonus Best Shitpost Award, because if people are going to write joke lewds they might as well be recognized for it.

So, for example, votes would go like:

REGULAR STORY: [X] EXAMPLE NAME
LEWD STORY: [X] EXAMPLE NAME THE SECOND
BEST SHITPOST: [X] EXAMPLE NAME, THE SHITPOSTENING

Speaking of, voting will last until the 23rd of September, 23:59 GMT. Everyone will get a vote in both regular and smut categories, plus the optional BEST SHITPOST vote in case you feel like throwing it in. If you don't wanna, or if there aren't any shitpost entries, feel free to ignore it.

Hi there!
So I know that there are tons of fan-made spin offs of various genres of the Touhou Project, which of course have their own OCs, but I was wondering which of them are the most famous?

After all, there's enough fan-art and remixes for Mitori that she kind of feels almost nearly canon-ish, I feel. She's even got a wiki page, so who else is up there?
There's Miko (Hakurei) from the MUGEN games. That's about all I know about. I barely can keep with the canon characters and their personalities, so I don't really pay attention to OCs.
There are a few at https://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Fan-made_characters.

... I don't think I've ever heard of any of them before today. Except Meimu, and that only via Touhou Nekokayou.
>>14409
most don't have much lasting impact, though it doesn't help that many seem to palette swaps of existing characters.

The "Previous gen Hakurei" mentioned in >>14408 has more of an impact among fans for having a more unique design compared to most.

Excuse me, but what is /coriander/? I've never heard of it.

If I remember right, it used to be /blue/'s sister board, but it was locked to condense things. I might be wrong, but I know that Teruyo and the others remember.

I'm sad. That's what got me into touhou.

Ah, well. Good times were had.
