Yeah, I know. Odd name, right? Well, this contest is focused on picking any two games or written works' cast and slapping them together in some way. The only limit is that it has to be the first game they were in. So no picking SA or PoFV and getting a ton of characters. If you want Reimu, you need to be more highly responsive to prayers, if you get my drift.

The deadline will be July 1st at 00:01 site time. If you need more time, say so before the deadline.

As with the previous contest, there will be prizes. First place on a given category will earn you what amounts to crappy commission art. However, I do intend to give it my all, so long as the request is within reason. Ties will both earn a prize. In the event you don't request one, I'll draw something based on the story itself.

On that note, one prize remains unclaimed in the previous contest.

Categories are: SFW and NSFW. The flavor of the day is Best Pairing.

The inspiration for the contest goes to Anon this time. >>14898 had an idea that I twisted into something I felt would make for an interesting contest.

I was gonna make a historically inaccurate contest, but sadly July isn't today.

This looks pretty interesting, I might actually enter something. Just to be sure, are crossovers allowable like >>14906 suggests? I assumed so at first, but realized that the games or written works could be meant to be Touhou-specific.

But what if I want to mash something up with Not-Just-Recently-Moved-to-Gensokyo Sanae, or Not-Omnicidally-Insane Okuu, or Not-Currently-Trying-to-Blot-Out-the-Sun Remilia?

>If you want Reimu, you need to be more highly responsive to prayers, if you get my drift.

or Not-a-Brown-Haired-Witch-Apprentice Marisa?
>> No. 14914
>>14913

Think this way: each game/whatever you pick is like a DLC for unlocking those particular character for use however you see fit. HRtP gets you Reimu and the rest, at any point in time, to use however you see fit. Basically, it's to avoid Reimu being an auto unlock in almost every pack, and to avoid certain games being absurdly appealing to pick, as it gives you a massive roster.

However, with games outside Touhou, I'm willing to ignore that for the sake of freedom. It's just like this for Touhou to avoid people power gaming by picking double spoiler and impossible spellcards or the like.
>> No. 14915
>The flavor of the day is Best Pairing.

Does this means the story should focus on a ship, or at least contains a shipping?
>> No. 14916
>>14915

Should? No. Can? Most certainly. It's why I made the crack pairings joke, as they're quite likely in this situation.

However, the special category is always optional. I just think about what's likely to happen in a contest and think of how to give a bit of an extra challenge for those interested.
>> No. 14917
Heh, here I am self-indulgently writing a 2hu-related short about my character from a tabletop RPG I'm in, and then this contest pops up with the potential for crossovers.

Yet, well, I'm real hesitant to try posting it here because, frankly? Using a tabletop campaign as the 'other game' in the the context of the contest feels... well, really cheaty and maybe going against the spirit of the rules.

Like, writing a character from an official sourcebook for the TRPG as one part of the crossover? Sounds legit. Writing my SPESHUL OC STEEL DONUT TYPE from a totally original campaign that just uses the same TRPG as a rulebook? Skeevy.

Anyway, I just wanted to ask if, indeed, this falls outside the boundaries of what you had in mind with the rules, OP, before I just post it straight up and possibly cause a ruckus over what's a legit entry. If not, that's fine.
>> No. 14918
>>14917
Speaking not as the organizer but as another TRPG player who sometimes writes fiction about OCs, I agree that your idea feels against the spirit of the rules. But I'm still kind of curious now. And you could always post your story in, say, /shorts/. Mind me asking what the game is that you're in?
>> No. 14919
>>14918

Since you asked, it's a game of Nechronica, that fun game about zombie children and the terrible things that happen to them. It feels like it could fit oddly well with a bit of touhou, which is why I defaulted to using a touhou as a viewpoint character for my thing.

Still, the more I think about it, the less comfortable I feel about posting it in this contest even if it did get approved after all. If I want to enter something, I can definitely come up with a story that's not skirting the spirit of the rules like this. I was already set on posting my thing to /shorts/ regardless when it was done, so this isn't a big loss or anything.

This kinda renders my earlier questioning pointless, hah. Sorry for clogging the thread with this after all, folks.

So, uh, lemme get this straight: crossovers are cool, right? If I want to mix Touhou with, say, Final Fantasy or whatever, I don't have to worry about picking one particular game from each series?
>> No. 14925
>>14924
Well, explain what you mean and I'll consider it. My thought was, say, EoSD/FF9 as an example of a crossover entry. To be honest, though, every single contest of mine has had no rules against crossovers thus far.

To be cheesy, the only limit is your imagination. ...Well, and your ability to work within slight constraint.
>> No. 14926
>>14925
Wait, so... does that mean I could do something like Touhou/Kemono Friends?
>> No. 14927

Well, I don't actually know much about the latter, but assuming they're both particular games and not a series there of, yes.

I mean, the rules are alterable, though. If one argues well their point, I fairly easily buckle. I just would like it to be fair is all.

I mean, honestly, anime and TV shows can count, if they have to. The way I said it in the rules was like that due to speaking about Touhou, as I hadn't considered crossover stipulations.

If it helps, this is technically my last contest of the year, and then the contests will lower in frequency to 4 a year, down from the current rate of 6. And, of course, this includes the yearly contest and NaNoWriMo, meaning that there will technically only be 2 of which being truly mine. Although, more likely than not, I will be hosting the NaNoWriMo contest in, well... November. No real intention to host the yearly one, though, unless I have to.

[SHITPOST] Grey Wolf makes a Touhou manga.

...Well, that was a thing. Maybe make more original jokes next time. As it stands, it was fairly unoriginal. I realize there's no category for it, but you deserve it.

[ ] Ragnonymous the Bloodedge.

Titles are very helpful things. That aside, I feel that your banter could use some work. The conversation was good, but the way it was structured was a bit odd. Listing off sentences and listing off replies to them just comes off as odd. It would work better if topics flowed from one to the next, if you ask me.

[PAIRING] Heartfelt Visitation

Wow. The story may not have been the best I've ever read, but the concept is quite a good one. It sticks to the contest's theme well, and doesn't delve into crossovers or retread jokes like most of this category. Sure, Okuu feels a bit too bright — and I don't mean that as in intellect, but vocabulary — but the characters feel like people. The length is also satisfying, which many can't say this time around. You sadly don't get my vote, though this is crack enough for me to say it's my favorite pairing.

[X] Birds of a Feather

I wanted to hate this story. The character's design looks silly at best and donut steel at worst.

But I couldn't. She had a way of worming her laser blades way into my heart, whoever she might be. Although, I find myself curious... What series or what have you is she from?

NSFW

[ ] Vermilion-Stained Violet

Ohh, the horror! Someone namefagged! Boohoo, I can't vote for this! ...Or not. I'll just assume it's the title. Moving on, the story is tighter than Yukari most likely is! I quite enjoyed it, broken neck and incontinence and all. Gaps are fun to use in a porn environment, honestly. So exploitable...

Ohh, and Marisa, Reimu and Yukari are from three games in total.

[xXx] Stupid Sexy Sanae

Another one I was expecting to hate and yet loved. Two characters I'm far from a fan of, both of whom I always make sure to spice up any time I use them. This was more than a little hot, honestly. And, heck, I feel there's some untold story here. I expected Sumireko's expectations to be toppled, and yet she seemed fairly spot-on about the slut being strong with this one.

Although, I absolutely love the ending. If only it didn't end, as I totally would read the crap out of it.

All stories were good and I really want to see more of then. The vampire story seems to have the most potential for a continuation. However, the other ones are better as one shots... And that is what the contest is about. With a little polish, it could have been the best.

Birds of a feather is a great story and, as much as I wanted to hate that robot thing, I couldn't. Very high quality in the writing.

Breakneck is a crack story of a crack pairing. The fact that it worked should deserve a prize all for itself.

Heartfelt felt (heh) really cute, even if it was short. Weird, but familiar. It gets my vote.

As for NSFWs, both were funny, but I picked the most fappable, as usual.

Please don't go overboard, or your prize may have higher sass content. Thankfully I've had a lot of practice of late, so my art has improved by leaps and bounds, even if it's still pretty bad. I now have a better grasp of perspective, and learned new tricks to get better line art!

Although, as few entries as we got this time, I may just art on the losers as well, though without the whole customization thing.

I could be responsible and actually update the stories here I'm supposed to update, and instead here I am being horrifically self-indulgent by writing a shedload of words about muh Nechronica OC girl being really cute with Touhous in Birds of a Feather. Not that I'm unhappy people liked it! Hell, the fact that several of the folks who voted on it were all "I want to dislike this because of the character but she's just that enjoyable" pleases me a whole bunch.

Honestly, I just wanted to write a thing with one of my favorite personal characters confounding Touhous, because outside-context characters are really just plain great in general, and this seemed as good a place to do it as any after I got permission upthread. I appreciate what everyone else did too, though! Especially the other stories that got SFW votes for actually, you know, sticking to the contest's theme properly instead of skirting the guidelines in terms of crossover source material.

Anyway, since I'm getting an art request for a victory, I'll take something of Mystia just looking terribly annoyed by whatever she's dealing with, because that sounds amusing to me.

Her expression is golden, even with all the 'Mokou exploding into meat' obscuring it. You nailed pretty much everything about her except for the skin tone. Which seems odd considering the reference pictures, I know, but the charcoal skin is an artistic styling in the game she's from that applies to every single character portrait. It doesn't match at all what people's actual skin colors are.

I edited a picture to be a more semi-accurateish look at her actual complexion, as you can see in the spoiler. You can also see how the skin tone clashes horribly with her hair, hence the black skin in the original pictures.

That said, I'm still totally fine with what I got! If you wanted to do another pass at it, that's entirely up to you.

This is a digital image. All drawfagship is of the highest quality. It is encrusted with rage, wanton destruction and character derailment, studded with crossovers, adorned with hanging rings of donut steel and encircled by bands of impatient voters. This object menaces with spikes of snark and fat jokes.

On the item is an image of Doyou Evenliftimus the Angry Marine and palm trees in glorious RGB. Doyou Evenliftimus is reclining in a hammock. Doyou Evenliftimus is flipping off in his sleep. The palm trees are bending under Doyou's immense weight. This artwork relates to the hiatus of FUCK GENSOKYO in the early spring of 2017.
