I think Keine has the best hat. It's still darn silly though.

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?

This post tugs at my heartstrings and makes me want to hurry out a reboot of my now-dead story; we were a couple of very long updates away from Tokiko playing some role for a while, and the fact that I didn't make it there is a shame.

However, I have a living story or two to attend to, so that's not likely to happen anytime soon.

This is probably old hat to everyone on this site except silly old me, but I finally, after a criminally long time, got around to reading Fallout Gensokyo.

I

I think I've suffered brain damage

my synapses are not rated for this level of awesome

and now I've reached the end and there's no more and I'm in withdrawl but I can't stop thinking about it because the author actually came back everything sucks in comparison I can't even update my own story I think I need a shrink send help aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa-

Ahem. Fallout Gensokyo is fucking amazing. You need to read it. Like, right now.

Somebody talk me out of buying Fallout, because then you won't see me for a year and I'll end up starting my own story and it will be awful and disrespectful to Fallout Anon.

I'm still hoping beyond logic that Alice is actually alive and well in that vault.
Yandere Alice hurts me mentally (and otherwise) Maybe it was for the best that it ended there.


Now read superstitious and cowardly lot, Paling something something and THE GAME.

The last one is the only one finished, but it will make you pay for it.

I really hope Fallout anon is doing alright. He was going through some tough times last time he checked in. Fallout gensokyo is probably my favourite story on the site, too bad it never got finished.
>> No. 15364
>>15362

I've read all three of those already. Superstitious and Cowardly Lot was my introduction to THP, and I read THE GAME while suicidally depressed for medical reasons, which gave it a fuckton more punch. (I really don't recommend it though.)

I'd add Metropolitan, Renko's Adventure and maybe Border House for anyone looking for more grim/gritty modern-day stories. Maybe Creeping Shadows if you like high fantasy too. Fair warning though, all of them are dead.

City of Harsh Fantasies isn't quite as dark, more of a hardboiled detective story, but it's very good and still active so go check it out if you haven't already.

There aren't any stories like that. Gods are a very underrepresented minority deserving of our protection.

Keymaster's Tengu of (Mis)Fortune in /youkai/ has Hina and the Aki sisters team up to gather more faith as a significant plot point. Its the sequel to Pleasant Meadows in /others/, which is the sequel to Being Meiling in /sdm/, neither of which have much to do with Gods doing real God things. They are all good stories though.
>> No. 15374
>>15370
That depends on how you define 'real god things'.

If we're talking like "being Greek pantheon level douches", then technically there's some of that at the tail end of The Game.

Other than that, can't say much of anything sticks out. Might be time to exercise the old Blue Ocean Strategy, if you know what I mean.

I'm partial to Molar's wholesome tengu lewds. It's not too graphic, but the interaction between partners are really cute.

Some of the later (actual porn) bits of The Beast Returns to Gensokyo are reasonably okay. The earlier stuff is pretty rough, and some of it is, uh... well, a little weird at times. But the writer mellowed out on that after a while. The bit with Shizuha is still one of my favorites. It helps that a lot of the non-porn parts of story are pretty entertaining too.

Too bad there really isn't that much good in /at/. Nothing I can remember, anyway.

> Mind the Gap

Made it about halfway through the first thread before the urge to barf became unbearable. Unless it changes radically and rapidly, it's an example of exactly what I don't want to write. Ever.

> Touhoumon

I read the hell out of all of those and yet they still somehow slipped my mind. Thanks for reminding me!

> PURPLE PROSE SAGA: LEWD TENGU EDITION

Dammit Molar. Smut isn't supposed to make your readers laugh. But you get a pass since that's the best Hatate smut I've ever read.

Because it's the only Hatate smut I've ever read.

> The Beast Returns to Gensokyo

...

Okay... two things here. One, what actual the fuck am I reading. Two, why do I recognise Star egging the MC in thread 1? I'm sure I've never seen anything else before, and yet...

...my brain hurts.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys.

48 Paizuri Techniques. If you're into the fetish, it's a masterpiece. If you aren't, it's still very good. It's a semi-continuous series of shorts, so even if you want to read just one character's part, you aren't missing a lot of context.

I will never live down Yamame losing the last few votes. How did that happen?
>> No. 15397
Soooooooo you guys listed the time-tested examples of good smut on this site, but...

Now I'm intrested in if you guys have some examples of very well done non-touhou smut.
>> No. 15400
>>15397
I can tell some good stories. Please note that of course it's all based on personal tastes, and such.

1 - "Expectations of Sanguine Disorder": classic, it gets better as you go on.
2 - "Hakugyokuro LA": second classic, have to read it.
3 - "SCIENCE!": kappas, kappas everywhere.
4 - "(Un)Gratefully Doing It Yourself" that later becomes "God Damnit Yukari!": ongoing, reverse-logic base plot (not gonna tell what, go read it), funny and entertaining.
5 - "I, Youkai / Phobe's Outing": well done OC, for once. Really.
6 - "Favors Owed": poor little rabbit.
7 - Anything written by "Keymaster", really. All his 3 stories are amazing. Read them in order of publication/writing!
8 - "A Fairy's Tale" and "AFT: Small Tales & Tall Tales" - unique views on certain characters, really nice.
9 - "The Magician’s Apprentice Exchanged Cups with an Oni": ongoing, it's just great.
10 - "Restorer in Gensokyo": another good OC. Yes it is possible.
11 - "Marisa's Magical Misadventure": ongoing, nice. Nothing much to say, it does its job well.
12 - "A Scarlet-Stained Memoir": here some SDM characters are really interesting. Unique.
13 - "Heads Up!": ongoing, follows Kogasa around Gensokyo. Light-hearted, fun. I like it a lot.

And now for the stalled ones. These are good, but sadly not complete. They may pick up again though, there is always hope.

1 - "Fairy on Scarlet Lake": great story. Amazing romance too. An absolute must.
2 - "Little Soldier Lost": Eientei scene, mixed with soldier. Nice.
3 - "Touhouvania": I think the name says it all.
4 - "Fallout Gensokyo": easily one of the best stories here. Period.
5 - "Seven Sensual Sirens": Yukari fooling around, just in a less mainstream way.

So yeah hope this helped.

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.

2011? Seriously? So right around the time the Secret Green Board died for our sins and before the advent of THP Jesus.

Assuming you meant you were still reading stuff up until 2017, Definitely catch up on Forest Mix(which just updated a few minutes ago by the way), Scarlet Tycoon and Heads Up!.

If you're looking for good new stories since 2017, I'm not sure what to tell ya. There were some stories that started off amazing, but ended up dying after the author either went MIA or psycho.

If you'll allow self-shilling, >>/others/65260 "The Magician’s Apprentice Exchanged Cups with an Oni" has had a good reception. I also update fairly frequently, though I haven't touched the story in a few days cause I'm sick right now.

What this dude said.

Going back a bit further, YAF snuck in another masterpiece, "Kurodani Yamame Has No Gods", which you can find over at >>/underground/14818, Raftclans popped up with a detective story called "City of Harsh Fantasies" at >>/others/63343 and NRFB started a Seiran and Ringo story called "Shoot For The Moon" at >>/eientei/26336. They're all the good, non-stalled stories I can think of back to 2016.

I was in the middle of reading Harsh City when the net stuff hit, it'll take a bit of time to find where I left off.

I'll think on the Yamame story as I read his last thing (At least the Satori story), and thinking if I'm ready for more overly snarky stuff or not.

Sekihead juggler here. Wham, Bam, KuroYam does mostly away with the snark, save one rather minor character and Satori, who appears around the last third of the story. It’s the same Satori, however, and KuroYam has… let’s say references to Tenshi is in This Story. So, if I had to recommend it, I’d recommend reading it after TiiTS and its sequel. Otherwise, some things may feel… abrupt.

It was a bit of a stupid move in retrospect, but with so many heads to handle, one is bound to break a neck or two.

The only other thing I can think of to add is a few old Keymaster stories like Being Meiling or Tengu of Misfortune. (The latter one's the third in a 'trilogy' though, with copious spoilers for the previous stories) I can't promise they'd be to your liking, but short of some weird porn shorts and what the others already mentioned, it's all I've got.
>> No. 15674

Shoot for the Moon in /eientei/ has Seiran interested in Yamame and Ringo. The yuri is more of a subplot than the main thrust of the story though, and I think the story might be on its deathbed at the moment.

As for that necromancer story, I assume you mean Animating Gensokyo in /th/. By the writefag's own admission, he stopped caring about the story a long time ago and only managed to get as far as he did because he stubbornly wanted the story to end and ended up pushing forwards towards an ending as fast as he could. The story is supposedly only one update from being over, but by the looks of things we are going to get a bad end if the writefag ever gets motivated enough to finish it.
>> No. 15675

wouldn't mind a bad ending tbh i just want to see the conclusion
