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?

Nobody around here reads anymore.

Kidding. The Kinu Yasumi Almanac for Outsiders in /th/ tickles my fancy. Currently waiting for If You Spook the Buddha (/shrine/) to update. Would love it if Fairy on Scarlet Lake would come back to life.
>> No. 13713
I'm enjoying Another Incursion, The Kinu Yasumi Almanac for Outsiders, and High Contrast. I'm surprised I even enjoy the third considering I know absolutely nothing about Kingdom Hearts other than it's a bunch of dudes with lots of belts swinging around flashy, unwieldy key-shaped weapons.

The writer does a good job of explaining shit that is relevant and not drowning readers in details they don't need.
Unfortunately he did also decide HEY SO YUKARI IS THE BBEG NOBODY DID THAT BEFORE RIGHT and that's kind of shit on my expectations a little.
>> No. 13715
ctf_Gensokyo is pretty entertaining for anyone who enjoys TF2. Apart from that, Regrets of Reisen is a short story that I thought was very well written. I've been reading "ǝɹǝʇɹǝΛuoƆ" on /th/, and I think it has promise.

Adding Another incursion-side story because it has potential, Do the right thing, because it is an everlasting classic and my favorite story (even better now that the updates are actually understandable) Theater of youth because it is another everlasting classic (better now that the author is updating) Forest Mix because the MC is great (even though it is being a bit slow)

Forgot to mention Favors Owed. I really wasn't a fan going in with some of the liberties the writer takes, but I can't put it down now.

Also, I'll never not recommend The Game because anyone who hasn't read it yet should.

Just finished catching up to the An Excuse For stories today.

An Excuse for Aya
The short version: If you like Slice of Life and Aya, then it’s worth reading.
Less short version: Aya find herself in the outside. She gets a job at the same place you do, on the same day as you start. However, since she doesn’t have a home, you let her stay at your place and shenanigans ensures.

An Excuse For An Excuse for Aya (An Excuse For Who Again?)
Short version: Ever heard of the fourth wall? Well this story hasn’t. It’s like Excuse for Aya, but with Momiji instead.
Kinda short version: You’re a shitfag THP writer who manages a pub with 3 young girls. Your shitty-ass neighbor moves out and a new moves in. Take a wild guess at who your new neighbor is.
Oh, and the story you write in the story is about grabbing Hatate's ass, I think.

Yeah, they’re two different stories. I thought an excuse for an excuse for just the next thread.
>> No. 13720
Lost Bees is worth a rec, if you're not opposed to crossovers. Getting into it might be harder at first for anyone unfamiliar with the game being referenced, but it comes together pretty quickly. Some of the updates are pretty massive walls of text, as a warning, but personally I consider that a good thing.
>> No. 13722
>>13716

At least it updates, which is more than I can say for an increasingly large amount of stories.
>> No. 13730
Seconding the ǝɹǝʇɹǝΛuoƆ recommendation now that it's more than two updates in. Also, that one thing with Ran that just popped up in /border/ looks like it might turn out interesting. Because more Ran is always necessary.

Are there any "low" power level stories where the MC is at most as strong as say, Mystia?
>> No. 13848
>>13847
If you're talking about a story with a weak MC, The Kinu Yasumi Almanac for Outsiders has one who's an ordinary human who can't fly or use magic and (most likely) never will. Forest Mix is similar, if you can handle the author's narrative style. An Excuse for an Excuse for Aya's MC is vulnerable to knives, so I'd count that. If You Spook the Buddha has Kogasa, and she's stage 2, so... I guess that counts? I mean, she doesn't flex much muscle in the story beyond cheap little tricks.
>> No. 13849

'Priest of Hakurei' is an interesting story about a priest of the outside counterpart of the Hakurei Shrine.

ATM is at a nice spot, with him being finally inside Gensoyko and all.

i just discovered this site last month and ive been binge reading some of the popular stories,its kind of hard searching for a stories with my favorite character in the storylist, can anyone reccomend me a tenshi story. even if it still incomplete is fine
>> No. 14107
>>14105

>a tenshi story

Do the Right Thing has Tenshi join the party fairly early on. It's long and updates sporadically.

Tenshi is in This Story is mostly a Satori story but has Tenshi show up in the last couple of threads. Completed and has sequels;
Your Love, Please
Satori is in This Short Story
San is in This Story
There was some Tenshi in Your Love, Please as well.

Heads up in /shrine/ had her show up for a third of a thread.

Peach Tree that Bore Fruit is short and incomplete, but has Tenshi as a protagonist. Last update was back in 2011.

Theater of Youth is a high school AU, with Tenshi being one of the main love interests.

splICEd is a cyberpunk AU with Tenshi as the protagonist. Short and incomplete.

Those are the only ones I can remember at the moment.
>> No. 14108
>>14107
ToY has a dark but enjoyable approach on her. It's my favorite of the site but you'll have to suffer (pff, as if) through a few, mostly unrelated, threads to fully enjoy it.
>> No. 14109
>>14107
oh thanks man ill read those.
>> No. 14110
>>14107
One should not read Tenshi is in This Story for Tenshi. For various reasons.
>> No. 14114
what about parsee? does she get any story at all?
>> No. 14115
>>14114

Parsee has a route in Pleasant Meadows, although it comes after the first route's ending because of how heavily the waifu lock vote was contested.

Also, I never read Kiss Me, so I don't know how much she factors into it, but I think she plays a major part in that too?
>> No. 14116
>>14115

>Also, I never read Kiss Me, so I don't know how much she factors into it, but I think she plays a major part in that too?

Yep.

>Pleasant Meadows
>Kiss Me

And they're both completed too!



>>14114

Do the Right Thing has a lot of Parsee once you reach the Underground arc. As I said before, it's long and updates sporadically.

Spirit of the Underground Youkai is short and incomplete with three threads and a Parsee route. The writefag wasn't happy with how it turned out and cancelled the playthrough.

Deeper Underground has some Parsee near the beginning but the writefag disappeared before we met her again. Incomplete. Last update was in 2009.

Winging It in the Underground is a short and incomplete IRC CYOA with a focus on Parsee. Last update was in 2009.

Along with the ones >>14115 mentioned, these are the only stories I can remember with significant Parsee, at least on THP.
>> No. 14117
So I've been lurking around for 3 or 4 months, and I'd like to know your recommendation about any good stories that involves an outsider and/or the outside world.

Also, how active is THP back then? 'Cause I kinda get the impression that this site is kinda dying...
>> No. 14118
>>14117
Animating Gensokyo is the only active non-crossover story with an outsider protagonist that comes to mind right now. It's a good story.

>> No. 14130
>>14129

An Excuse for Aya is the story that inspired the story you mentioned. Incomplete and the last update was six months ago.

Border House: Welcome to the Outside Incomplete and the last update was in 2011.

The Landlord of Mayohiga Incomplete and the last update was in 2010.

Touhou: Taste the Rainbow / Graze the Rainbow Incomplete and last update was in 2009.

>> No. 14143
>>14142
First one that pops into my head is Tenshi is in This Story. Excellent read.
>> No. 14145
>>14142

As >>14143 said, Tenshi is in This Story and it's sequels focus on Satori:
Your Love, Please
Satori is in This Short Story
San is in This Story

Other than that there are several old, unfinished and dead stories in /underground/ focusing on her but since it's been so long I can't remember which ones. The ones I can remember are:
Dead Enterprise
Kindred Inalterable Dependency
Dreaming of Obsession

/underground/ is the smallest board with only seven pages worth of stories to sift through, so it shouldn't be too hard for you to find the rest if you want to.

Best long-running stories?
Doujins and Fics outside thp is fine too, since I got some free time I'd like to spend binging on toho fic like the trash I am.
>> No. 14178
>>14169
Remi-centric as in, Remi as the "protagonist" character or just as a prominent figure in the story?

Basically what I'm asking is, do you also want CYOAs that feature her as the antagonist?
>> No. 14179
>>14178
Antagonist Remi is okay if it's executed right, but that's not what I was looking for. I was thinking of things more along the lines of SDM:LA or Scarlet Tycoon's Remi.

Basically a Remi that isn't evil chess-master, but one that's nice. Well, "nice". Gensokyo Supa Quest had a Remi like the one I'm looking for.
>> No. 14180
>>14179

Well, Remilia isn't the main focus in Being Meiling, but when she does show up she's indeed nice. It's been some time since I read it, though, so I'm not entirely sure how much she features in it, but she's still important. Besides that, I never finished A Fairy's Tale, but from what little I remember seeing Remilia in that she was also generally benevolent? Again, not sure how much she actually shows up in it.

Sorry I can't really offer you anything concrete, anon.
>> No. 14181
>>14177
Excuse my faggotry, but I'm pretty sure the only long running fic that's still alive is DtRT. Animating Gensokyo or whatever that's called might also be old? I don't remember and I'm too lazy to go back to the homepage to look.

>>14180
I finished Being Meiling roughly two weeks ago. That was good stuff. I've not read A Fairy's Tale. My god. I thought I did, but I don't recognize the first thread at all. Thank you.

If you like Dungeons and Dragons, "A Wizard is You" has Keine in it. It hasn't updated in years though. In fact I'm pretty sure it stopped right before there was going to be an H scene with Keine. Or more accurately, the writefag wrote an update that skipped the H scene on purpose, promising that he would come back and write it later, and hasn't updated since.
>> No. 14271
>>14270
That was one of my favourite stories on this site, and definitely worth a read. That being said, the sheer number of discussion and neckbearding made it very difficult to go through, with only two or three updates in each thread at the end. I would advise against trying to read them all.

I've been thinking about Kagerou a lot recently. Getting an itch to write about her, even. Are there any writefags faster than I, who've done it already? Failing that, are there any stories focusing on DDCs who aren't stage 5 or 6?

There are no stories focusing on Kagerou specifically to wit; Wakasagihime seems to be similarly lacking in stories. Sekibanki has Heads Up and Paper Football Days plus those couple of stories on /shorts/. I'm sure there was an /at/ something or another too, but I can't be arsed to find it.

I wrote those. So you know my situation.
>>14328
Screw that. I'm not a competitive soul. I work on my own terms. And my terms say I don't write unless I've got a full idea for a story in my head, which I currently don't. Which is why I was looking to read one. Damnation.

Oh, just so this doesn't become a useless post, I'd like to back up >>13719 and recommend An Excuse For An Excuse for Aya (An Excuse For Who Again?). It's an amazing little piece of wish fulfilment which doesn't feel like wish fulfilment thanks to the hilarious, snark-arse, male tsundere MC. Maybe the first "ye 2hu wakes up in the Outside World, what do" story on THP I read without my eyebrows twitching with second-hand shame, and I've been following this site for years. Go read it. Then bother the author to bloody update already. You and I both need more of that shit.

ACUTIE, a.k.a. A Cultured Utopia Tantamount In Excellence, is my choice for today. Not only it is the second best acronym CYOA, just after TITS, but is also a train wreck and completely unplanned story that managed to make a good MC, have good characterizations, an interesting approach (Magic isn't real, but a cult that believes it is isolated themselves in a town called "Gensokyo") and excellent plot twists that, despite being born of April's fools updates, have foreshadowing and make perfect sense.

The only part I didn't like is that, at some pivotal points, the author timeskipped ahead for no reason at all. What the fuck.

Don't Call Me a Glutton (Dacmag for short) updated and it's a really fun read. So far it's equal parts police procedural, food porn, and Kokoro being a jerk to everyone.

None of the original characters feel like donut steels, they fit into the setting pretty well and considering how little love the youkai mountain gets in general, it's great to see a story that really fleshes out the "daily life" aspect of the mountain.

I'm curious, are there are good Mamizou stories out there?

One of my favourite stories on this site is Fallout Gensokyo. I'm sure most of you have read it, but if you haven't go read it. Shoot For The Moon is a more recent story I think is pretty good.

>>14613
Nah man. Read Between the Lines is a completed story with an OC MC. Kosuzu is in it, but Mamizou isn't.

I think you're thinking of The Hunt for Little Bell. Kosuzu is the main character and Mamizou was in it near the start. Hasn't updated since 2014, right after the writefag promised to make a new thread "after the Writing Contest finishes. Or maybe a bit earlier." And then he never updated again.

Writefag of Little Bell here. I have awoken from my long slumber to tell you that it's dead, Jim.

I wrote myself into a corner back then, and a combination of real life stuff and writer's block forced me to leave the story on indefinite hiatus, and later completely forgot about it. Now I've learned from my mistakes and moved to better pastures. By which I mean I'm currently working on preparing another new story in hopes that I won't abandon it after the first thread.

Off the top of my head the only thing that comes to mind is the Sekibanki short in /shorts/ called Sekibanki written by the person who writes Kurodani Yamame Has No Gods.

There's also heads up one of the stories that was written for the quick words contest, but she's more of a side character to add commentary to Kogasa, also not a lot happens in that story. It's a fine story if what you're looking for is "Kogasa visits random people with a Sekibanki head."

There's been a sizeable amount. Off the top of my head, Tenshi is in This Story (featuring the MC and Satori) and An Excuse for A-Who? (featuring the MC and Momiji) come to mind. There are plenty more but I'm retarded and can't remember any more.

There's "That Sanae Story in /Youkai/" focusing on Sanae, although it stopped before it got anywhere, and also "Theater of Youth" where it has multiple love interests if you don't mind that.

She's the nurse in Dark Tidings, though isn't in the spotlight as of yet. Not exactly a standard Sariel, though.
>> No. 14966
Sariel is one if the most underappreciated 2hus. She barely appeared in border house and in one of those small, old, stories that barely reach the second thread.

That said, Mai appeared and may soon star and arc in that Monster Musume story. Be warned that it updates as 'often' as Priest of Hakurei. Then again, both have really good quality. Maybe you really can't rush talent.
Someone should tell the writer of Shadowmaiden that, though, he updated like there was no tomorrow.



Moving on, City of harsh fantasies is getting better each update. And Eastern Tale is pretty good, but has like three readers. Same with Otherwise, but that has the hard votes and slow updated to blame, I think.

Lost Bees has been pretty slow going lately, but hopefully that'll change soon.

Also, change this thread's title to requests/recommendations. We certainly do a lot of the former more than the later. It isn't a bad thing though.

I didn't say anything about bookworm romance, but if that's your itch then surely Patchouli has seen a route or two by now? If she hasn't, something must be wrong with the world.

"Shoot for the Moon." The moonbunnies, after LoLK.

"City of Harsh Fantasies," in which a Private Investigator had to solve mysteries in a semi-contemporary version of Gensokyo, while dealing with his own inner devils. At least he have Mori(ya).

"Don't Call Me a Glutton," in which a Wolf Tengu patrolwoman deals with daily annoyances in the frontier town Amaden, where humans, kappas, and tengu (uneasily) interacts, trades, and such.

"Heads Up!," in which our favorite umbrella enjoys her days.

"Forest Mix," in which an outsider woke up in Gensokyo! Adventure awaits!

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.

That depends on how you define 'real god things'.

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.

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.

... I really wanted to use this picture of Yamams for something.

Supposing it is the one on your mind, yes. I do agree.
