So, it's spring, and I've got it in my head to write something. While I've been steadily cracking at something for DE out of obligation, it's not exactly the most enjoyable activity right now. What I want is something more episodic, that I can pick up, write for a couple weeks, and put down without leaving a cliffhanger every time.

So, I have two three major ideas running around in my head right now:

The first is a light-hearted kind of story with short, simple JRPG battles interspersed frequently throughout. The setting would include a Yukari-run coffee shop and Maribel and Renko as starting party members. Not based on any RPG I know of.

The second idea is a more serious touhou mecha story. Gensokyo is a mobile fortress/city, anon is a newly-out of work pilot who meets up with Reimu and company. It includes almost every touhou at some point or another. Loosely tied to Armored core. Loosely.

The third is a very mini CYOA where I take a stab at writing some Flandre. Light hearted in a sort of black comedy way. In the interest of furthering my own fetishes making things a bit less creepy, the protagonist is 13~14 years old. May or may not get as far as any actual romance. Flandre route only, of course.

So, to wit:

[ ] RPG
[ ] Mecha
[ ] Flandre

Votes for '[x] DE' will be summarily dismissed because I'm working on that already dammit.

We've got Mary and Renko in Fallout Gensokyo, but we're in danger of losing a good Flandre story if Taisa doesn't come back.

Just to note, I'll be out of town Monday and Tuesday, so there's plenty of time for votes. I'll check it when I get back and make my decision.
No. 3766
And weaken the cause for when Taisa does return? Too much has been sacrificed for it to end like that.


I'm voting this because god knows when ExNine's going to ever update his story again, and I like to have an easily accessible Renko and Mary story.

GAH! Both sound so tempting. "Yukari-run coffee shop" alone is almost enough to sell me on the first one, but JRPG battles tend to annoy me, and I do so like dark comedy...

Why not, this looks like it has strong potential for hilarious and d'aaawwww-inspiring hijinks.

You're making decisions based on stories that have nothing to do with this author and his unique versions of these characters.

Stop that.

That isn't the only reason; I want to see how such a story would play out. That and Renko And Mary; nuff said.

Still, that doesn't change the fact that some stories might adversely affect others.
No. 3775
The doc's writing again?

But if I have to settle for one then I will go with [X] RPG since I like those. Also astronomy club.

You can re-vote if you want, because those don't count for anything.

Seriously, not writing that.

Aaaaand voting is called!

'[X] RPG' is the winner by one vote.

I'll start working out the last kinks in the system, stat up the characters, and start writing the first post. Expect it to start within a couple days.

Agreed, I don't think there's a story on there that manages to update more than once a week, and often they miss even that.

Good enough for me. Border it is.

Expect to see the first update soon.
