The long and short of this thread is to recommend some recent CYOAs. I honestly stopped frequently checking the site over the last year due to decline in stories that held my interest. Specially around the time we all branded together to cleanse.

The last few stories I remembered following was Teruyo's CYOA series and DEFT series in /shrine/ with Arc and Friends. Pains me to see the old favourites of still in forever hiatus/dead status even after all this.

No. 6479
The DEFT writer has a story in /forest/ you should check out. Also, Discovery, Investigation and Manifestations is his /Eientei/ story that I particularly enjoy. You should read Do the Right Thing in /th/. I also really like Fleet Foxes. The Idea of Alice in /sdm/ is great. Owen is writing something new in /others/, and I'm sure you already know about Lion's stories.
No. 6480
I'll recommend Hunter's Dream in /forest/. I would also recommend Warlord in /th/ by Mode.

I'd recommend some other stories, but they're not written by writers deemed worthy of a recommendation.
No. 6481
Seconding Do the Right Thing, it's a...unique experience, to say the least. But the hilarity never really seems to die down. Truth be told reading through the first thread, I'd have thought the unique narration and main character perspective would have gotten old, but it endeared me to no end. I can happily say were the MC of that story a real person, I would happily get hit in the face by a rock from him.

Warlord in /th/ has just started out recently. so there's not really much to say as of yet. However it's shaping up rather well, not much more you can ask from a story that started so recently.

Do the right thing is fun but sometimes its style gets a little convoluted

as for my recommendation, I think Border House is the most enjoyable by far, and captures the japanese manga style quite well. Resentment is fun also, although its nothing too thus far.

I enjoy The Idea of Alice in /sdm/. I mean, sure, the author is a temperamental artiste who writes in fits and tried to delete all of it once, but he has long updates and the story is peerlessly written.

If we vote we might motivate him to write the the last chapter before 2020.
No. 6487
I recommend A Wizard is You in /th/. A D&D wizard ends up in Gensokyo, stuff happens. Demetrious writes really, really enjoyable characters, so far without fail, and seems to actually have an idea where the story's going. Read it.

Don't worry, you don't have to know D&D to understand the story.

Back after reading up a storm:
>DEFT writer has a story in /forest/

Excellent, I require more Alice. And Mima.
Still a seven minutes writer.

>Discovery, Investigation and Manifestations

Still catching up on Teruyo rage quota, hope this mellows it out.

>Do the Right Thing

The writing style turned me off so fast. Couldn't get into it.

>The Idea of Alice
Havent read enough to make a opinion on it.

>Hunter's Dream and Warlord
Not my cup of tea. And I'm a real manly man.

>A Wizard is You

Excellent story outside the EXCESSIVE amounts of swearing in it.
"Feels like I'm reading the Killzone 2 scrpit and watching the english dub of Black Lagoon at the same time"-retarded amounts of swearing.

Luck and lies. Incredibly new story that's probably dead.

Involuntary Pedagogic Fantasy. Had a small bit role. Never finished, nor will be.

MIG. I honestly can't remember her role in it, but it's infamous for [x] Call out for Tewi (among other things,) so she was surely in it to some great extent.

Luna Ars Memorativa. More Eientei as a whole, but that obviously includes her. Seems to be dead.

None of these are finished, nor will they be. Also, besides Luck and Lies, none of them is actually Tewi-centric. If you truly wish to read a story that focus' heavily on her, I think you just might be out of luck. I, for one, cannot recall any off the top of my head. Perhaps some other anon can swoop in and provide some better help.

If I remember correctly, it's a small continuation of a scene from WUIG, so you would have to read that to fully understand the context. Then again, if you haven't read WUIG, what the hell are you doing on the site?

Retrospective and Astronomical Narraration.
Mokou only appears near the end, but you should read it anyways since it's fantastic.

Involuntary Pedagogic Fantasy
She's in it, but the story died before we could spend more time with her.

Arguably, Gensokyo High was Patchy route.

Memoirs of a Vampire has Remilia as an MC, and the first arc is entirely dealing with meeting Patchouli. It's also written by Glasnost. Expect an update come 2020.

A Fairys tale also had some good Patchy moments, including that one scene about the truth of things, which was awesome.

I'm grasping at straws here, really, but a Scarlet Stained Memoir had some good Patchy in it, if I remember correctly.

All in all, if you truly want a Patchy route, you just might be fucked.

Not that I can tell, but god knows her and Sakuya are super heavily favored over Meiling (Isn't it sad, Meiling?)

I thought it was /sdm/, not /ignoring Meiling forever/. Same goes for /youkai/ (Not /sanae/) and /border/ (Not /Yakumo/). It goes triple for /eientei/ (Not /Let's ignore Reisen and drive Harker away/)

I don’t think an author should forever limit themselves to a single genre until they’ve at least tried out some other ideas and find out what “clicks” for them.

Not true, though many stories that get anywhere near a Sakuya route seem to die or the author suffers from laziness, like Anonymaster. Stories have tried to go on Sakuya route, often spoiling the chances of anyone else getting one in the past.

It's been ages since I've read it, but I'd say it's worth your time. You've got an interesting protagonist in that she's extremely childish and naive while also being a man-eating youkai, and the juxtaposition from the eyes of the character herself is quite compelling. It's a very slice-of-lifey story, the protagonist just chilling out with some of the weaker Touhous and learning about the world around her while also killing people in the very next breath. I wouldn't say disgustingly adorable, but it has its moments and it's consistently fun.

Klaymen is a very solid writer as far as authors on this site go, but the big thing it that he's committed. He's one of the very few writers here who's got two complete stories to his name and he's still going strong. Commitment like that means you know he cares about his writing and his characters.

There's a hero-turned-merchant. He buys and sells goods across dimensions. There's very little economics involved, and he'll probably end up saving the world at some point. Oh, and half the females he meets are attracted to him.

No. 8114
>>8106
Chiefly the large amount of dead stories in /eientei/, with mainly LSL and yours being the two that are still go on in some form. The only thing worse than seeing so many stories harp on one character above all others is seeing most of them DIE. And if someone tries to start something in /eientei/, odds are it'll likely be Kaguya or Eirin.

This plight isn't uncommon in other boards, just ask all the Meiling fans about the multitude of Sakuya-aimed stories that puttered out, especially SDM LA Run 2.
No. 8117
>>8114
I have to contest that. Three stories that aren't dead (by the standards of the site anyways): Roll the Dice, Word of One and Haunting Resonance. All three are not about Kaguya (though I admit I have not read the last one yet, only skimmed through it). And most of the dead (or hiatus'd) stories have looked to be about other characters: Harker with Reisen, that astronaut story seemed to be about Reisen, Luck and lies seemed to be about Tewi, DIM certainly wasn't about Kaguya either...

This doesn't even cover the fact that outside of /eientei/ it's mostly Keine, Mokou and Tewi that seem to attract attention.
If there's a Kaguya conspiracy out there then I'd certainly like to be part of it.

I will agree that it sucks to see stories die and drop off, especially if done so quietly. But that's another subject entirely and perhaps better suited to another thread.

Teruyo, man, calm down.
If you like Kaguya, hey, great for you, I'm glad you're in a situation where you get to read about the character you like (and also write about her).

But those of us who like Reisen aren't in the same position, and some of us see Kaguya popping up everywhere as, well, too much, especially when other stories die.

Those of us who complained about a lack of Reisen left your thread when you asked us to, so you don't have to come here and tell us that we're wrong about the sad state of affairs when it comes to Reisen stories, when we think there's not much Reisen in /eientei/ and that those who look like they might become Reisen-focused are derailed into some other path, mostly into a Kaguya one.

What I'm saying is, calm down a little.

I'll be sure to be an active participant, to the best of my ability, in that thread.)

I've provided evidence that you're wrong, while you haven't done anything to prove your argument. I'm well aware that Reisen doesn't have a full story dedicated to her but you're ignoring reality (in other words the examples given) and resorting to incorrect generalizations.

I'm the one being wry and using humor here so I'm pretty sure I'm calm. Try not to be so melodramatic. Arguments, debates and conversations are usually not successful when one party completely ignores the other. Stop taking disagreement with your assessment as an attack on you or Reisen fans.

I feel kind of bad for derailing the thread a little but, hey, thread is full anyways and god knows that the site won't be hurt by a little activity, albeit a bit tangential.

And, I've kind of given up on /eientei/ for a while, but from what I saw, it's not like there was much else 'sides our dear NEET princess that was around, so you can't really blame a fan of a character for getting the impression that Kaguya had taken over pretty much all of that place.

I'm not the biggest Reisen fan but I like her because she's level-headed and hard-working if maybe a bit weird. I dislike the sex appeal angle and the glossing over the fact that she's a deserter and a coward (arguably most rabbits are) that the fans seem to do. What is remarkable about her is that she hasn't gotten a story dedicated to her despite her popularity. She's likely the most popular out of the IN cast.

>>8133
>Not the guy you're talking to
I think you are. I don't think you quite understand how things are: My story has been a Kaguya story since around thread 10. I, however, routinely make fun of most characters, their fans and myself (perhaps most of all). I'd love to see a Reisen story just as I would like to see a Tewi story or a good story about a whole score of other touhous (Yuuka ;_;). So take it easy, look at the other stories and vote. What people don't understand about CYOAs is that most of the time if they're character-focused that you get to choose the characters you're around. If you never read and participate in the stories, new or old, they'll most likely not go in a direction you would best want them to.

To put it more colloquially:

Ya gotta grab the moon rabbit by the ears, son.

Were you referring to the fact that some folks think that the moon rabbits were anything of the badass sort as opposed to being cute and only good for taking down fairy maids?

I do share your opinions on Reisen's charm, though the core IN cast is pretty popular all around though before Sanae became the popular girl, Reisen was the newbie bait girl in terms of art/doujins. Sad part though is the fact that canon Kaguya isn't appreciated enough due to the spread of the fanon rendition, which has polarized some folks.

As someone who read DoLF2 from the start, I got the sense Kaguya or Eirin would be the likely candidates with Reisen being in a rather distant third.

It's easy to say "Vote for Reisen" but harder to do in practice as people seem prone to voting for Kaguya/Eirin/maybe Mokou.
No. 8142
>>8141
Yeah, it's partially the badass/gun thing, they're not very high in the hierarchy. Not that that's a bad thing, it's endearing in a way to have characters who aren't particularly malicious.

I'll have to agree on the canon Kaguya thing, I'd like to see more of that. I'll admit her personality in DoaLF is really just the premise of "what if she had been exposed to the realities of earth more, particularly utilizing modern means of communication" and works as a contrast to the other less 'exposed' characters and a complement to the protagonist (well the last part is more since the story began to focus mainly on her).

Though the approach in DIM is different. That's really the only really different interpretation of Kaguya that I've seen on the site. I enjoy it but I'm not 100% that it's that well-appreciated by others.

As for Reisen, I think she had a good chance near the beginning. But, like always, her fans seem to be conspicuously absent when they're needed the most. So she gets sidelined. My advice? Present a united front and work hard to convince others of the moon rabbit's virtues. You're got the numbers, certainly.

I'd personally love to see it. Then again I'd also kill for a proper route for most touhous.

that's mainly inbetween the various "arcs" (i.e. Rick fucking just about everything in a given area) Not bad though it dilutes the Yukari focus.
