Cirno looks rather surprised, and blinks at you for a second, not understanding. Suddenly she grins. "Oooh! You're realllly clever! I get to pick then, I get to pick!" She squeals happily. Hopping up and down. Not giving you a chance to reply, she picks you up off the ground, flying you to who knows where. Anon, decide!
((Posting here.)) >>227328 She takes you rather high up, although not so far that you have trouble breathing. Oddly, you don't feel any sense of possible falling, or any other fear that might normally get to you from such a precarious position. Then again, that might be brain freeze from sticking around Cirno for so long. It's the middle of the night now, and quite cold between both the normal tempature and Cirno's presence, and you're shivering. Looking down, however, you see a small blonde girl dart into a small home. Although you can't quite tell who it is, Marisa would probably be wearing her hat. Your teeth chattering a bit, and you can see your breath in the air.
[ ] Do not comment, allow her to take you onward.
[ ] "Hey, Cirno?" You ask, suppressing a shiver. "Can we see who is down there instead?" You point out the quaint house.
>>227515 Cirno blinks. "Ooh. Oooh!" She looks down, spotting the house, and giggles looking down at you. "I could, I could!" And with that, she takes you down near the house; she has been surprisingly helpful to you so far. "Oh. I know this place! I just forgot! Haha!" Cirno laughs rambunctiously, looking over at you... Only to pause. "You're not going away, are you?!" She pouts, looking over at you. "I wanted to show you that place!"
[ ] "I need to sleep Cirno. Humans have to do that. I promise I'll see you in the morning, alright?" You try to assure her gently.
[ ] "I suppose we could go see your "Place". But, you have to lead me back here." You look at her sternly, waiting for her aquiescence.
[ ] "Cirno... Alright. Let's go." You smile back. You can forget this house for now, Cirno looks so happy, and you don't want to disapoint.
>>227571 Cirno looks ecstatic at your reply, with a loud, exhuberant yell, she grabs you, taking off without another word. She grins as you speed along, but you can't help but take a short glance back: At the loud commotion, Alice had come out to see what the fuss was about, and looked at you as you rapidly sped off, carried by the childish ice fairy. She looked almost... Melancholy, but she rapidly fades into the distance as Cirno continue to carry you along. Although the trip is cold and long, you eventually land at a cliff top- And Cirno covers your eyes. "Guess where we are, guess!"
[ ] "That place?" You ask jokingly, honestly not sure.
[ ] "The entrance to the netherworld?" You ask.
[ ] "Somewhere with you, Cirno." You state, trying to angle your face to where you think the fae is, and smile.
[ ] "Somewhere high up?" You try to peek through her fingers, confused.
[ ] "Umm, the human village?" You guess, scratching your head.
>>227655 "Tahdahhhh!" She says, removing her hands from over your eyes with a flourish. "See? See? It's a really good view from up here!" You look, and appear to be on one of the peaks surrounding the Human Village in the pass, looking down. In the distance, you can see a bamboo forest. What do you do?
[ ] "It is a very nice view, but Cirno, where could I stay in the human village for the night? I'm tired." You ask her bluntly. It is cold, and has been a long, tiring day.
[ ] "Oh wow." You exclaim, looking with a sense of giddiness at the height. "Cirno, what do you know about the village down there?"
[ ] You whistle, looking down. You're quite far up and it is rather impressive... but your eyes wander to the bamboo forest. "Cirno, could you take me that way?
>>227853 "Oh? What?" She asked, looking at you with a blank stare. "There's only rabbits thataway. Why would you want to go that way, silly?" Cirno looks at you, confused. "Why'dya want to go out there? Hmm? Hmm? You humans sure are strange!" It appears she won't take you there without some form of excuse. And it is REALLY cold up here, in the middle of the night, next to the continually cold radiating Cirno. You might catch a cold.
[ ] "Maybe there is something else than rabbits out there?" You reply lamely, hoping your easy excuse will get past Cirno.
[ ] "I heard there was a treasure out there. How would you like to find buried treasure, Cirno?" You ask slyly.
[ ] You shrug. "Can I go see?" You ask, without offering an excuse at all.
[ ] "I heard there were some people from the moon out there." You reply, semi-truthfully. "I want to see them, don't you?"
The answers so far have been trying their best to get killed and failing.
So far, the options people have picked: Intentionally got lost in magical forest Intentionally started looking for fairies Went to Scarlet Devil Mansion Tried valiantly to get China to let them in Dicked around when Cirno was trying to play with them
>>227939 Cirno looks at you askance. "Are there really? I dunno..." She looks out; she probably hasn't travelled far beyond here, finding the humans much more interesting prank targets. Or getting distracted by something shiny. Or being chased away. Or any combination of the above. However, just as rapidly she grins eagerly, grabbing your arm. "C'mon, human! Let's go find those moon people! It's an adventuuuuuure!" She yells, causing one or two people of good hearing in the village to look up, seeing an ice fairy dragging an oddly dressed, cold guy across the night sky. Such are things in Gensokyo, they shrug, and ignore the weird scene, returning to whatever task they need in the night.
After an hour or so, you find yourself lost, in the dead of night, in the bamboo thicket. Cirno insisted on decending, and you were too chilled to the bone to object. You really wish there was some sort of tempature control in Gensokyo. Marching forward, you both eventually, after hours of searching, come upon an old looking mansion; there are several rabbits hopping around on the premises, being talked to fondly by a odd looking girl in a pink, frilly dress, with deep crimson eyes, short black hair and... rabbit ears.
[ ] Approach the girl.
[ ] "Cirno, I don't like the looks of this place..."
[ ] Boldy approach. "Heya!" You exlaim, matching Cirno in every way.
>>228039 She looks up at you alertly, as do all the other rabbits at your stunning, galling (9) action. Cirno rushes forward too, right next to you and grinning. "Hiya! Have you seen any moon people around here?!" Tewi looks briefly unamused... Before a sickeningly sweet grin breaks over her face at you. "Suuure... Just come this way." She dashes inside, and the other rabbits flee.
[ ] Enter! With caution.
[ ] "Cirno, I'm having second thoughts, she seems suspicious." You warn, a bit cautious. That grin was damn unnerving.
[ ] "Cirno... She obviously must be working for the moon people, let's try to find another way in!" You insist, tugging on her arm.
[ ] "Come back here!" You shout, running right inside heedlessly.
>>228057 There are bad and scoring ends. This is your first day, would be a shame to kill you off so soon.
>>228147 She looks at you, and seems to think it over... for five seconds. "Ahahaha! See, you're MY human, so obviously you're really smart! Yeah, let's outsmart those silly moonies!" Cirno gushes, happily accompanying you.
You search around the perimeter, and eventually find a second entrance. Do you dare go in?
[ ] Open the door carefully, and go inside. "Cirno, let me; Something mean might be in there." You assure her as you go in.
[ ] Open the door slowly to see if the coast is clear. Obviously you weren't supposed to come this way.
[ ] "Hmm, maybe we should go back the other way..." You reconsider.
Probably wouldn't be as amusing as it would quickly become work while this thread is more of a amusing way of burning up time. Still, I have to admit, better then most the fan fiction crap I've seen in /jp/, most of the characters seem more or less in line with their actual mentalities.
>>228167 >>228180 Yeah, totally as I go. If I knew how to do a VN, that would be pretty awesome though; I'd take a shot at that.
>>228206 Opening the flimsy, japanese style door slowly, you peer in... And see another rabbit girl, with slightly purple-tinted hair. She looks well dressed, clothed in a black business suit, with a white shirt and red tie underneath, and a rather revealing skirt. Her crimson eyes stare ahead boredly, apparently waiting for- Something. Reisen is humming to herself quietly, the lunar rabbit obviously a bit preoccupied with her own thoughts, and doesn't seem to notice you... Yet.
You feel a slight shock as Cirno presses against you coldly. "What's in there?" She asks, whispering childishly; that is, not very quiet, but in a very conspiratorial manner. She tries to peak in too.
[ ] Allow Cirno to do so and decide a course of action instead.
[ ] "Shh, I think it has a guard. We've gotta sneak by, there's gotta be moon people or treasure in there." You whisper back, in a sly fashion.
[ ] "There's a moon person in there." You reply simply. "She looks weird."
>>228348 "A moon person?!" She exclaims, pushing past you and opening the door. "WHERE ARE THE MOON PEOPLE?!" She bursts in, yelling loudly at the top of her lungs. You can't help but wince a bit as she's standing right next to you. Reisen looks rather surprised by the sudden intrusion, to say the least. She closes her eyes and turns to both of you with a heavy sigh. "Five seconds. I am giving you five. Seconds. I have had enough of Tewi, enough of fires, and enough of complaints tonight. Five. Seconds. Out. Now." Reisen replies, a bit scathingly. Obviously in a bad mood from some sort of incident. "Five..."
[ ] "Alley oop!" Grab Cirno and run past her, down the hallway before she can react.
[ ] "Cirno!" You yell. "Do something! I dunno, shoot ice or something! You're good at that! She must be some sort of evil henchman! Err, henchwoman." You correct yourself, but still point at the irritated Reisen.
[ ] "Run AWAYYYY!" Grab Cirno, run off into the forest before that scary ass woman can come after you.
[ ] "I'm not afraid of you!" Look directly at her eyes. Surely reports of madness are overblown.
[x] "Cirno!" You yell. "Do something! I dunno, shoot ice or something! You're good at that! She must be some sort of evil henchman! Err, henchwoman." You correct yourself, but still point at the irritated Reisen.
>>228454 Your bravado is amazing, prompting a slight "Yay!" from Cirno as you step forward boldly... Unfortunately, Reisens eyes are closed, as stated, (Perhaps reading before going for the suicidal option would be smarter?) And she brings her hand up in a gunlike shape, pointing down the hall at the both of you. "Four..." She sounds far less impressed than Cirno.
[ ] "Look, I'm sure we can talk this over. We're both rational folk here. All we wanted to do was explore."
[ ] Grab Cirno, charge past her!
[ ] Grab Cirno, flee!
[ ] "Cirno, attack!" You yell, and charge at the lunar rabbit.
>>228718 "ALRIGHT!" Cirno yells excitedly, easily catching onto the right concept, and seems to prepare something as you run right at Reisen. The well dressed lapine girl promptly opens her eyes wide, staring right at you... Huh. You know, you were SURE there was a floor there five seconds ago. Oh wait, it's on the ceiling now. It's also a bright pink.
After what seems like an eternity later, you wake up... In the bamboo forest... Alone. You're not sure what the hell happened back there, nor where Cirno is. But you feel like you've been figuratively bitchslapped. Actually, screw figuratively, she probably did. Damn.
>>228762 You sit. And wait. It is cold. Really cold. Going to sleep sounds like a very, very good idea. You wait, confident that someone would find you. And wait. And wait. Eventually, despite the tempatures, cold and all, you eventally drift off to sleep, unable to stay awake any longer. As you close your eyes, you hear rustling from nearby... Alice, is that you? Cirno? You can't recognize it. The cold is making you so sleepy...
>>228820 You pass out, but even as you do so, you can feel someone pick you up gingerly, but cannot even will your eyes to open to see who your rescuer is. The darkness is nice and warm, however. At least you'll sleep well.
You wake up with a sore throat in a well lit room. A goodly fire is lit, and the room is nice and warm. There is a pleasant smell of something delicious cooking, but you can't quite pinpoint what it is. You are well tucked in, and the room is warm. There is a window to your right, letting the morning light filter in onto your bed. The room is accented in cream and dark burgundy, with a small chair in the corner. Several shelves are lined with various trinkets, shiny and not, weird and commonplace. It has a very girly feel though, somehow.
>>228911 You look out... And see children playing in the street outside. You are probably in the human settlement. You look down, and realize that you are wearing a long, white nightshirt. Your clothes are folded neatly on the chair.
You hear footsteps approaching from behind the door.
[ ] Jump back into the bed, pretend to be asleep.
[ ] Go over to the door and open it.
[ ] Stay right where you are and watch the door. Assume a fighting stance you saw in animu.
