Recommend CYOAs and plug your favorite stories here. Take your bitching to /blue/. This thread is for complimenting good stories and directing readers their way!

New thread for auto-sage and the old thread falling off page 1.

I want to recommend “One Knight in Gensokyo” even though it’s already dead by now.

It has an interesting premise, that is “A devout catholic (a crusader precisely) enters Gensokyo.” I mean, what will happen when a monotheist enters a land where magic clearly exists and there are gods that you can directly see with your own eyes? Besides, it has a potential for Byakuren route.

Too bad it’s never finished. Damn you, Karesh!
No. 8266
Hard to say when or if he'll finish it as his life seems busy on top of the IRC laziness.

if you don't mind the occasional fumble, someone resumed ACiG for paperboy, though not much attention has been given (good or bad), but ComradeWriter is an earnest writer.

Curses Foiled again is a nice if kinda slow updating story in /youkai/, i.e. something other than Lion's story.

I do intend to pick it back up at some point or another in the future. Though, as far as intentions go I never really intended for such a hiatus in the first place.

Whoa, Karesh, you still lurk here? I thought that you've already been swallowed by the IRC Cabal.
No. 8316
Na, I'm actually barely on there anymore either. I just lurk around to read some stories at this point. Most of my freetime is either schoolwork, Skyrim or Saints Row for the near past and future.

If I remember right the last time I actually went on to chat with the Cabal was a few weeks ago to announce something to them.

Here's a pretty good story, called Merchant in Gensokyo.
It's got the potential to be a Reisen story.

No. 8337
Could we stop with the overpushing of Reisen routes? Sure she's a possibility but the story doesn't need brainless Reisen fanboys voting solely for Reisen, even if it screws up the story.
No. 8338
It has as much potential for a Reisen route as it does a Reimu, a Marisa, a Patchy, etc etc. How is pointing that out going to shit up the story?

Also, Are there anymore stories with a child-protag aside from the one in /th/ going on right now, akin to Kindred Inalterable Dependancy?
No. 8339
I've seen some brainless votes with the aim of time with Reisen in that story already and it's something that shouldn't be allowed to become a trend as it'll backfire for all Reisen fans.

As for your second question? The closest thing would be I,Youkai in /forest/ and its sequel stories as the MC is a very young youkai.

Thank you for recommending this. I just started reading it last night, and I'm already loving it.
No. 8391
Calm down, man.
I was doing what
said, pointing out that it can end up as a Reisen route, since this one has the potential to go down that path.

I don't see anything wrong with that.

Expressing preference for a character? Fuck no, we don't do that on THP. We're better than that.[spoiler]Take your bitching to /blue/.[/spoiler]

The only ~completed~ Rumia story on the site, as of this posting as far as I know. Actually a pretty good story on its own merits, though! It's about a child surviving on her own after a train crash. Some stuff happens. It's pretty cool. And it has Rumia in it, a big plus for people that like Rumia such as myself.
No. 8394
Yeah, how about you stop bitching about what others are posting/voting, in this place?

From what you've said, you don't seem to really care much for Reisen, but stop complaining about it here.
I've no interest in reading your complaints.

Hot damn, an actual Rumia story?
Going to check it out - thank you very kindly for the link, good sir.
No. 8395
It's not that, but rather such brainless voting will end up causing a backlash against Reisen in that story due to being associated with such morons.

It's like how that fucking idiot Wiseman basically gave Flandre fans a bad name in GH.

We just talked about GH in IRC. Taisa said that he still wants to continue it but he's just too tired to do so.
No. 8398
He's not tired. He's mental. In fact, too mental to go and see a bloody shrink.
No. 8399
Him wanting to continue GH probably isn't a good thing. I'd bet a small sum of money that thinking about GH tires him out emotionally, and he doesn't think he can continue GH until he feels better. But maybe I'm just projecting.

anyway this is all incredibly rude

Dolls in Sync is a great little story about Alice's dolls. Very cute. Warning: Sporadic update rate.
No. 8400
>We just talked about GH in IRC
Yeah, sorry, I have something of an attention-whoring problem...
Sorry about that.
No. 8402
Talking about your stories isn't attention-whoring. Well I guess.
Attention-whoring is more like telling in your story thread that you opened a youtube channel, a livestream, or that you're playing TF2 on a very specific server or something like that. Giving private informations when nobody ask you, m'kay? That is attention-whoring.
You can say that asking people to read your story is attention-whoring, but it's not. It's more like... publicity or something like that. Since you're not seeking attention for youself, but rather for your story. Unless it's a self-insert. Or a Mary-Sue story. Or something like that. Wait, I'm losing myself.
Point is, unless I'm really wrong, the Cabal is for THP-related things, right? And GH is part of THP, right? Therefore, speaking about THP-related thing to the Cabal isn't really attention-whoring, since it's more or less the topic. Unless I really miss the Cabal's goal.

Well, I say that, but I'm not dumb enough to use my tripcode while posting this.
No. 8404
>Talking about your stories isn't attention-whoring.

You're correct, but you seem to be forgetting Taisa has been using the same excuses for... maybe more then a few months, if my internal clock isnt completely fucked up.
No. 8405
I wouldn't say that's a Rumia route story, but rather a story with Rumia in an important role. Now Dr Q's holidanon stories are closer to a Rumia route, too bad he drags out the moment so much.

You're more right than wrong. He's not in a good situation as if he leaves GH be, it'll linger over the board while trying to finish it may prove more self-destructive.
No. 8408
I didn't say it was a Rumia route. Just a Rumia story.

Holidanon is more one-sided stalking, anyway. Kind of like Wintertime Alchemist. And arguably Gensokyo High. ... And the story I just linked She had a crush on the protag's mom, if I recall correctly.
Rumia will never be involved in a consensual romantic relationship. Makes sense, I guess, she's a predator in love as well as life.

I've been thinking on reading more /forest/ as right now i'm catching up on /shrine/ and a bit of /border/ stories I missed.

Oh, And FatalErrors stories are really cool. Hate how he's in everything thread though. It's kinda dumb.

What stories are being read right now? I'm just asking as to know which ones not to list.
No. 8505
in /th/, None of the threads but the Exalted/Touhou crossover and the CoD Zombies/Touhou Crossover. I've been thinking about picking up Fleet fox and Stiches of Time, though doll's quest isnt something I'm going to pick up.

Roll the Dice and that Mokou origins story in /eientei/, catching up on Little Lost Solider.

The Fire Fairy 4th wall breaking story in /forest/, Dont really know if the other stories in there are good.

Just an Average Joe, That 9-ball team in the outside world story, Not too sure on Shikigami of the heart in /border/.

Ace Combat, Dead and hating it, Clothes make the man, Not sure about Wintertime Alchemist and Archetype of Self because S.L.D.T. never updates in /shrine/.

http://www.touhou-project.com/sdm/res/29518.html#29904 That thread. I think it had something to do with a fairy in SDM, though the URL apparently doesnt work so I dont really remember where I left off, so nothing in /sdm/.

Pretty much everything in /youkai/'s first page barring A little fact and Curses foiled again, Mortals and that Sengoku Gensokyo story.

Everything in /underground/ barring Tenshi isnt in this story (which i dropped) and Infiltrator.

City Quest, Merchant in Gensokyo, Metropolitan, An excuse for Aya, and Violet Sky are the /other/ stories that I read.

I've finished The Game, and Archetype of Self's first run. I cant really remember anything else though.
No. 8507
If you want a good story in /th/, Wizard Is You is where it's at, can't really think of much better in that board other than Do The Right Thing (a wandering in Gensokyo story in the modern age)

It might have lost a step getting stuck in the underground, but it should recover in due time.

Fleet Fox is an interesting story, though it's not exactly typical either.

Stitches in Time is a nice read, interesting and good.

As far as /forest/ goes, Stardust by Serial ATA, and That wriggle story by Oracle are pretty nice.

I'm not convinced on that Fire Fairy story as it seems to be copying Dolls in Sync (/forest/ story by the guy who writes Stitches in Time)

As far as old stories, I,Youkai is a great slice of life story.

It's good you're reading little solider lost. If you feel like reading something interesting, try reading Word of One, also in /eientei/.

Curses Foiled (Again)! is perhaps the best story in /youkai/ that people aren't reading. Sure it might not update much but the updates are quite nice.

I can't really say much for /border/ or /undergorund/ as their writers seem very inactive.

Good /others/ stories would be Border House (on hiatus until Lion finishes his /youkai/ story.) and Creeping Shadows by Klayman.

As far as /sdm/ goes, There's A Fairy on Scarlet Lake and The Eldest Scarlet though both update pretty slowly. As far as the Fairy Maid thread problem, someone will tell the guy running the archive about it and he'll fix it.

Semi-newfag / lurker here.

Just wondering, what are the stories that you can generally take for granted people (should) have read?

Both of Lion's stories seem to qualify (and I can see why, they're incredible), along with MiG and I guess WUiG. Not really sure whether GH is infamous enough to read or avoid. Were there any real problems other than the flamewars? And are there any other "classic" CYOAs here?

You absolutely must read GH. The one who wrote it (Taisa) had done an amazing job making all of his characters likeable. The shitstorms there were very hilarious as well. Trust me, you won't regret picking it up.

Any good Prismriver story?

Personally, I would suggest A Scarlet Stained Memoir. That story brought me here, and was epic enough to lure newfags here.
GH is fine, as long as you focus on the story. I avoided all shitstorms, and I still think it's a GREAT story, and that it's a HUGE shame that it's "on hold".

I recently stumbled upon Silver of Sovereign, which had several good things going for it. The main thing I appreciated was how a feeling of consistent peril and underdogness managed to be maintained ... most of the big shots didn't even know Tokiko's name.

Fragmentation of Memories has an excellent Sanae route, but it takes a while to really get to it, and it doesn't end very well.

Well, I already followed that one. I want to find another Sanae route.(although the writer is not actually said not routelocked yet, it seems the readers has routelocked to her)
now if the writer post the actually continue the story and not short story, not that I hate short story,it's nice, but it's already one month plus.(Yes, I'm looking at you Treia)

Will look at these stories, although maybe I'm doubt I'll read all the Fragmentation of Memories one.(Too confused about what happened at there, and the spoiler too...)

I'd also like to hear about anything good where the main character is NOT a male OC from the real world. I just can't stand that setting, ugh.

Also, I'd like to recommend Patchy Quest. It's really well-written and characterized, even though the plot moves a bit slowly at times.
No. 8553
Metropolitan in /others/ is both of those. Tokiko (yes, really) is the protagonist and Renko's her coworker.

No. 8782
Mildly passive-aggressive remarks aside, >>8780 actually does make a good point in that, although Futo and the rest of the TD cast have yet to figure prominently in stories, it's probably not for lack of willing writers.

Perhaps someone would like to write about them, but have too many other things on their plate to deal with before they even think about starting a new story. Perhaps someone would like to incorporate them into their current story, but need time to set up their entrance. Some may simply be waiting for more information on them before committing themselves, especially with Symposium of Post-mysticism coming out in another month or two.

On top of waiting to learn more about the characters themselves, there's also that whole "Taoism" thing writers might want to take the time to research before attempting to write about characters who have built their lives around practicing it, assuming they wouldn't rather just gloss over that aspect of the characters.

Just be patient. We've already got a story featuring Yoshika, so it's only a matter of time before Futo and the others get their time in the spotlight.
No. 8783
Not really as unlike most attempts, DtRT has a talented writer, enough to make it work.

Many newbies get told to read the old stories and as a result end up ignorant of current board culture (and the fact most of the popular concepts, such as MiG have been done hundreds of times), and end up making a story that's a lackluster rehash.

This is what meant by those planning TD's introduction as it takes some time for a new game's characters to make it into a long running story.

Not strictly the purpose of the thread, but others have been making requests, so:

I'm trying to find a short which crossed over Planescape: Torment with Touhou.

/border/'s been in pretty pitiful shape ever since Patch stopped writing there. And out of the remotely active stories there, it's either too early to tell or no chance at all.

My advice is to write such a story yourself as it's very unlikely that writers that favor her will cover her. Just look up a proofreader and some good people to toss ideas with and you'll have a working story concept.

Keep the shit in /blue/. Someone recommended it, and I did too, and that's that, okay?
No. 8950
Oh, so now we're recommending stuff from FF.net, eh?

Alright. Here's my rec.


It's a crossover with Super Smash Bros. It focuses mainly on the fighting aspect but it doesn't make the Touhous overpowered like many other Touhou crossover fics do.

It has 121 chapters up until now and it's going to be finished soon (just waiting for the final battle). Also, it's the most reviewed (553 reviews to) and the longest (700k+ words) Touhou fic on FF.net. Yes, that includes Imperfect Metamorphosis.

And if anyone disagrees, I'll just tell them to bring their bitching to /blue/.

No. 8955
It's one of those stories. When a write in like >>/th/155093 flies, you know there's something wrong.

Still, the story itself isn't looking too bad, even if I have some reservations about the powerlevels and reader schmuckery going on.
No. 8956
Oh, it's a crossover with some kind of tabletop game right?

Reminds me of A Wizard Is You. Too bad I'm not familiar with the tabletop game. I only understand DnD.

Okay, thank you.

Any good story with Ran? I vaguely remember one when she wakes up in a hotel room with protag, what happened to that story?

It's not a romance story first, maybe some may come up. But if you don't like OCs romancing Touhous, WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING HERE!? This site was founded on OCs screwing around and romancing touhous.

He means canon to MiG, obviously.
And yes, Reisen is criminally underused around here. It's a bit of a meme that Reisen will never get a route.
No. 8977
I like it because of the "out of nowhere despair"-ness obviously (well, not exactly out of nowhere since there are already a lot of despair-inducing plot twists before it)

It's like Kira made it to troll the shit out of THP. And boy did he succeed.

This is how you become a legendary writefag folks. Make the readers really attached to the characters and then without pulling any punches make really bad things happen to them.

Oh, and it's really hilarious to see anon freaking out each time things got worse.

Bang! reads more like a fix fic than anything, for anon to get their happy end with Reisen.
No. 8978
You just listed every reason why I didn't like that story. You are bizarre.
Oh, and no, that's not how you become a legendary writefag, that's how you become a legendary asshole. Nobody remembers Kira for his actual writing prowess.

I once asked him about that in IRC and he answered basically he was at a loss of what to do with the story flying off track at that point and decided on the snow end to put the story out of its misery. No trolling intended.

Feels really bad, man.

But on the Reisen matter, how about trying to make a Reisen story instead of sitting on your ass and expecting other people to do it?
No. 8982
Because I am already trying to write a Reisen story, and I wanted to see other interpretations of that cute moon rabbit.

Well, just finished reading all three threads of it.

I've gotta say, my favorite part of it is the worldbuilding, not the romance. I kinda miss the point of the story, don't I?

So, any other stories like that?
No. 9031
Honestly nothing that shows village life too well as the only other example, (A)DEFT is too close to the happenings of Touhous to show it well.

Worldbuilding appears to be a lost art these days in the world of plotplotplot. But if it's that you're interested in, I'd highly recommend Curses, Foiled Again as NARH's gensokyo in that is different but interesting. He could merely take a break from Hina's adventures and just go on about his gensokyo and I'd still be interested.

as far as the romance in it, it's definitely not the only thing but if you have any issues, you should voice them as he seems good about listening to reader comments.
No. 9034
Nah, it's not the writer's fault. It's just I'm not interested in "romance with Touhou" story.

But he writes it unlike the usual way of writing that kind of stories, you know, without the worldbuilding aspect. That's what makes it interesting to me.

Still no story that really focuses on village life, huh? Oh well, beggars can't be choosers.
No. 9042

There's also Fairy on Scarlet Lake, but honestly, I don't know this one.
No. 9136
And I forgot to mention A Scarlet Stained Memoir, still by U.N.Owen. It has Cirno in a major role.
Not gonna spoil the plot, but it's a mystery story, with some investigation parts, and a lot of red herrings. And it's kind of dark.

How many names has Owen gone by, anyway? (They are the same person, right?)

And from summary glances, doesn't look like those featured any named fairies besides Cirno (I have read ASSM, for the record, but nice description). Are there really no stories that have? HLA featured Lily Black, of all characters...
No. 9138
As far as I know, only two. U.N.Owen, and Princess Tepes.

I was kind of hoping for the commonly accepted meaning of plot, not the brony meaning.

We're probably just not well known enough. TVtropes is and is mocked for it, even with a lot of goons using/having used it. (But as someone who frequents TVT, there's definitely a larger amount of creepy stuff there, though we might have a higher ratio.)
And anyway, there's worse shit than insertion on /at/, like the frequent scat threads (ohgodwhy.jpg).
No. 9153
Yeah, we're somehow not well-known at all despite having some of the most high-quality Touhou fanfics in the Western fandom.

Wonder if that Chagen guy ended up in /at/. It has some diapered Touhou porn, if I'm not mistaken. Oh well, he'll probably become a whiny attention whoring tripfag there.

Hey! Go defend your story somewhere else. This is a thread for recommendations from readers to readers. This is certainly a common sentiment, and we don't need you dragging this entire thread off track so you can feel better about yourself.
No. 9191
Take a minute to read the thread. A significant chunk of posts are writers talking about themselves or their stories. There is absolutely nothing wrong with me saying something about one of my stories. And yeah, you're still wrong about the earlier statement - the story is about relationships, if there were no progress or development there would be no story. You're entitled to your opinion but some things, like what actually happened in the story, are not a matter of opinion.
No. 9192

Talking about your story and actually having to defend your story (in a recommendation thread at that!) are two different things. Let the readers recommend.
No. 9193
I'm recommending stories because they're interesting. I recommend stories I liked. Therefore, I'm following my own opinion when I'm recommending stories.
And your story is depressing.
Either you're making fun of your readers, either you're downright insulting (for example, there was that guy asking you if you were all right, your answer was "lurk more ive always been liek that"), and most of your meta post are like "your not making the right choices". And I find that depressing, because you're taunting your readers, but at the same time, you're repeating them that it's hopeless.

In other words, I think your story was perfectly qualified to be suggested to a despair seeking anon. Now, if you want to defend yourself, we can turn this thread into a trial thread and spoil the whole board, or you can act like an adult and ignore it. After all, it's a recommendation thread, not a "this story is bad" thread. Anon wanted some despair, I gave him your story.
No. 9195
The difference depends on the context. I'm not saying "my story doesn't suck", that your opinion is wrong or anything like that. All I am contesting is the claim that it's a story where you don't "get the girl". The whole story is about just that! ie. you can't dispute that with time and updates the romantic relationship advances. That is often literally what the votes are for. I don't really care much if you don't like me, or you don't approve of what I've done in the past - that's not relevant here. Just be accurate. Save your melodrama for elsewhere, there's middle ground between mild dissent and a "trial thread". Again, I'm not doing anything new in this thread.
No. 9196
>I don't really care much if you don't like me
That's totally not the point. The point is that, during your story, I had the impression that, whatever I was voting for, it was futile. And I was right, since you ended the story with a joke update while making fun of your readers.
And you're the one bringing drama in this thread. Not me.
No. 9198

This is exactly what what I was trying to avoid you idiots.
No. 9199
Is there any decent story with PC-98 characters only?
No. 9201
I remember seeing one or two stories that had characters who were predominately PC-98 but not to the point of exclusivity. I think one of Klaymen's stories and, I want to say BA but I'm not 100% on that. It's been a while since I've seen that sort of thing.

Just chill, buddy. It's fine to know what people think about a story in a recommendation thread. I'll go back to posting anonymously, as usual, after this since I already made the point I wanted to make. I see that this has the potential to go back and forth for a while longer but I'll abstain from more posts, so yeah sorry if this detracted from the rest of the thread too much.

>That's totally not the point
I know it's not but the point of that sentence was to tell you that your opinion is fine. Like > I had the impression that, whatever I was voting for, it was futile
is entirely valid. What's not valid is saying that it's not a "get the girl" kind of story, because it is. Or your line that I ended the story with a joke update while making fun of my readers. I never did that. In fact, it'd be impossible given that the story doesn't have an ending. See the difference between opinion and impressions and what actually happened? So once again, say what you will about how you liked something or not but at least get the facts straight.

Dude, you're the one who is name-calling and otherwise making a big deal of everything. Not to mention talking down to me. It's okay to talk to people on the internet without treating them like garbage. See global rule #4.

It's just a hobby, you have to realize. There's no obligation for people to finish besides their own drive. It's not all that bad though. I try to look at it from the perspective that it's more about the ride than the destination. I mean, there are tons of stories that are at least novel-length and they're still fun despite not having an ending. Being able to read something fun is better than not having anything at all to begin with the way I see it. Also the medium factors in as well. If people were just writing normal fiction without reader input, there would be less excuse to pause/stall.
No. 9207

I don't have a problem with you using your trip (and that much should be obvious). I have a problem with you dragging this thread so far off track for your own sake.
No. 9208
Stop being a hypocrite. Look at the posts in this thread: authors talking about themselves/their stories, a good lengthy discussion about GH and Taisa, talking about rehashes, hartmann and YAF posting off-topic things, irc and even attention-whoring by yourself. Three or so brief posts that are to the point hardly count as a detraction. What's more, they're on-topic. Knowing that a story contains this or that falls under the purview of this thread. So, yeah, you're making a big deal out of nothing. So in the future I suggest you take your own advice and avoid taking things off track just for your sake. Hopefully thread 3 will be more to your liking.
No. 9210
Yeah, but reading a story without a proper ending... I dunno, it's like a cake without frosting, it feels incomplete.

I enjoy the laughter and other emotions I got from reading something more than endings most times. I mean, the fact of the matter is that The Good Soldier Svejk is great even without an ending because of the antics and social commentary. So yeah, I focus more on the messing around with touhous and doing things together aspect of a cyoa. I mean, you as a reader are choosing to do these things, it feels great to see how your actions change and influence things. Sure, an ending is good for closure and I won't argue that it's not necessary. But, you know, it's just a matter of not getting so hung up on a certain aspect. In the end you can use your own imagination to create an ending if it's that big a deal.
No. 9235
>social commentary
What, there are stories here with social commentaries?

About a story having an ending, it really depends on what type of story it is. If it's like LoTR, of course you must have a proper ending. If it's like K-ON (most of the stories here), then you can get by without an ending.
No. 9236
>What, there are stories here with social commentaries?
In no way was that implied.

Funnily enough you bring up LoTR which has a pretty average ending. The battles and the journey with the ring are a lot more satisfying than the final bit with the departing. Yeah, I'm avoiding spoilers
No. 9237
Well, I didn't expect Frodo surviving at the end or Gollum was the one who destroyed the Ring, albeit not intentionally so that's a plus to me.

Using spoiler tag for LoTR is quite silly, isn't it?
No. 9239
For me it gets ruined by the fact that it got dropped.

The chronic drop rate of stories may explain why everyone's so motherfucking bitter.
No. 9244
That's all climax or falling action (if we borrow terms used mainly for plays), not so much the ending in of itself.

You have to ultimately make peace with the fact that it's just a hobby and take it for what it is. You can't expect better from random internet people. It helps to chat with the author a bit as well, it lets you see if he's committed or not, or if he needs the occasional push.
No. 9248
Yeah, but it doesn't hurt anyone to add just a little "and they lived happily even after". It doesn't ruin the story, and it doesn't give the impression that the author just got bored of the story and threw it away.
No. 9255
I'd say that a bad ending, or a rushed one, is often worse than no ending at all. That "happily ever after" can feel like an anticlimactic cop out.
No. 9256
How should an ending be anyway? Should it explain and wrap up every single plot point in the story? Or should it be an open ending where the readers can decide for themselves how the story ended?
No. 9257
That, my friend, depends on the author and the story he's telling. There's probably no real consensus here, just whatever feels right. It might also depend a little on the genre, since thrillers and whodunnits tend to wrap up plot points more often than not.
