The calm before the tempest of youth.

I could tell that the stress from upcoming exams was already getting to people. My classmates were liable to start snapping over small things like not returning a borrowed eraser suitably clean. The worst part was that the usual escape valve, clubs and after school activities were suspended for the duration of the exam period. That didn't usually affect me nor Suika but even goody two-shoes like the class rep became insufferable.

It wasn't hard to get Kaguya to agree to partner up with me. I asked her directly, without hesitation, confident that she'd say yes. The last time we were on the roof together she seemed to be open to the idea, after all. She was thrilled, modestly stating that she wasn't sure that she would be able to be of much use to me. I smiled and told her it was okay, making sure to gloat at the other poor fool that had approached Kaguya a few seconds before me. His intention was clear but he hesitated, likely intimidated.

Things got off to a very regular start. We decided to meet in the library for our study sessions and started covering the year's material methodically. I didn't have a lot in the way of notes, for obvious reasons, but I managed to get enough spare copies of old printouts to have a coherent enough structure. We sat side by side, and did a different subject per day. When we had covered most of the topics, we decided to focus on particularly tricky areas that we had struggled on previously.

“I suppose that literature is the main problem I have,” Kaguya stated. It was about time for the library to close and we were putting all of our study materials away.

It's not about money, it's about meeting a touhou. Opportunity is worth any amount of cash, and wasting this opportunity is a bad move. Even with just less money, there still are fun things to do and fun people to meet.

Who are you?
What is your name?
What is it that you desire?

...You are... you. Youmu Konpaku, Age 32 in human years. You are a half-ghost, Something That Should Not Be, yet here you are. You are our last, best hope against the evil machinations of Remilia Scarlet, our last line of defense against a vampire whose power is limitless in its destruction.

It all began when Yukari asked you to go on a journey. It was one of noble importance; you were to head "Outside", into the real world, as it were, in order to fight an order of vampire's known as "Camarilla" - a cabal dead set on upsetting the fragile balance of the Sealed Lands; places like Valhalla, Avalon... Gensokyo. You traveled to France with Remilia while another set of allies - Marisa, Sakuya, and Sanae - approached from the East. But of course, all was not to be as planned.

Remilia betrayed you, revealing that she had brought Flandre along in disguise. The vampiress, mad with power, nearly killed you, breaking your beloved katana Roukanken in the process. But you almost killed her in turn, and you escaped into the city, making contact with Byakuren, who promised help. It was all you heard that day, as you passed out from your injuries.

In your slumber, you learned of your link to Flandre Scarlet, her power sealed off thanks to your Myon, which she stole during your battle with her. The Camarilla did unspeakable things to her, and it was then that you realized that not even Flandre deserved such a fate. So you set out to rescue the vampire, utilizing your wits over your dimished power. You succeeded and escaped, though it was only barely. Resolving to get Flandre away from this horrible place, you left the city, teaming up with reinforcements - Reisen and Nazrin. Through them you learned of the

Had Youmu abandoned the mission and returned to Gensokyo early, the Tsuki-Genso war would have happened first, and by the time Youmu won or lost it, Remilia would have taken over most of the world, including most Sealed Lands. If Youmu had rescued Flandre first, her power would be weaker, but still beatable. If Youmu hadn't, Flandre would have escaped on her own at some point and become a rebel against Remilia.

Yes. If Youmu didn't have Flandre there to more or less convince Sakuya that her side was the good guys, the betrayal would have been completely unexpected. Reisen would have been critically injured, maybe dead (though that's highly unlikely), and Marisa would have had to use mind magic on her own, which would drive her insane.

[spoilers]No. No other touhou is dead. Nearly all of them have been captured and are being used for Lunarian Science Experiments™, but other than that, no. As for Suwako, she's busy with. Uh. Things.[/spoilers]

If you told me it was going to be the fairies, I'd have laughed. Fairies? The hell are fairies going to do? Well, individually, not much, of course. So we ignored them, when we weren't using them as maids, practice targets, cannon fodder, what have you.

They were always willing to take up a cause in an incident, willing to take it up and die for it. Of course, 'dying for a cause' is a bit different for a fairy, given that death to them is at most an inconvenience for a couple of hours. So they take up the cause in the name of fun and shooting, and are inevitably shot to pieces by whichever resident troubleshooter is on the case.

So life continued, fairies got involved in incidents in peripheral roles, incidents continued to be solved with force applied in a brute manner, Gensokyo was saved yet again, and the world kept spinning.

I assume the world's still spinning.

This is an assumption, as we're no longer on that world.

The fairies were learning. And waiting.



And now, all that remains of Gensokyo, all that remains of the world perhaps, is me, and the approximately thirty thousand escapees. Hell, I don't even need to approximate it. We took a census. There are thirty thousand and eighty two of us.

I didn't feel like getting up. It was way too early. Normal people like me liked to sleep in.

“Wake up please,” the voice resumed. Along with the request came gentle prodding of my sides. How very annoying. I was liable to wake up if that kept up.

I rolled over, protecting my belly and other tender areas from prodding. There was a sigh somewhere. But it didn't dissuade the voice. “This is ridiculous,” it said as I felt the mattress beneath me shift. I waited patiently. If the disturbance was to end I had to act swiftly and precisely. Otherwise the whole of my brain was going to wake up.

“Eeek!” the voice shouted out as I reached out and grabbed it. Without skipping a beat I pulled the person down firmly onto the bed. They laid right across from me. Mission accomplished. I could finally go back to sleep.

When a person has lived a long and (not so) prosper lifetime of kicking ass and drinking tea, what a recently deceased spirit desires most is to move onto the next stage of the cycle of reincarnation. It took an ungodly amount of time wasted on paperwork -- why cannot those shinigami bureaucrats keep it simple? -- but finally, the spirit was ready to leave Higan and take on her new incarnation.

How would her new life unravel, she wondered. Will she become a rich lady living in a mansion? A carefree boy living and playing in the village? Perhaps she will take up the broom and wand and become a magician? But knowing her luck and karma, she probably won't even be a human. She sure hoped she wouldn't turn into a fox. She already had experienced a taste of that in her previous life, and it sucked big time.

"Nice try, but it won't be that easy."

But before the spirit could float down the tunnel of light that leaded to her new life, she felt a sudden gut-twisting wrenching -- despite not having a body yet. Everything went pitch black, while the spirit heard a dry voice chuckle in her ear -- if she still had an ear.

"You thought you'd take on a fresh, uncorrupted mortal form? A fresh-faced young girl, strong and vital, ready to exterminate my undead hordes and ruin my plans? Ahahahahaha!" The voice cackled. "That won't do. That won't do at all. I have a much better idea."

Uh-oh, thought the spirit, as the darkness swirled around her head -- again, if she had one. She felt the very fabric of her soul getting yanked violently against her will, which filled her with an intense, excruciating, indescribable pain that threatened to tear her essence apart.

Somehow, the spirit knew this was not the way reincarnation should go at all.

Since you sorta asked for it in the rage thread, I'm going to keep a running commentary about how I feel about the story.

Monty python reference Not funny. It just doesn't work when written down.

Six feet under joke Somewhat amusing wordplay here.

couple thousand miles away If this is a joke, it's a bad one since it abruptly breaks up a logical though process.

broom fight scene I liked it. Reimu's shounen-anime-level monologues were kinda distracting though.

particularly humerus Nice timing on that one. I giggled.

hovering Cuisinart that hated all non-humans I had to google this to piece together what your were going for. Word of advice; don't make your readers google things.

Overall, I liked the update. Mostly because I'm a fan of this particular narrative style. In regards to the comedy; Though somewhat "hit or miss" I find myself curious as to the next joke your going to try.

Blood pressure dropping. The patient was about to crash and crash hard. If he didn't get help right away, he would be a goner.

“Dammit man, I'm a doctor not a miracle worker,” I whispered to myself as I continued to play out the ER fantasy. Anything to keep my mind off dark thoughts as I weaved through corridors and took the stairs to the nurse's office. It was too late though, the patient had gone into cardiac arrest. Things were dire.

Eirin was sweeping her own office with an old bamboo-handled broom. “And what's the matter with you today?” she asked with tried and true cynicism. It wasn't that she wasn't glad to see me, I felt. It was just that she likely dealt with more than her fair share of hypochondriacs and malingerers. Doubly understandable since I was a likely candidate for the latter category.

“I'm really feeling sick,” I told her, “have some sympathy.”

1st Thread: >>51178
2nd Thread: >>55139

Recap:

The vampiric magical girl known as Fl_ndre, and her friend Words, are thrown into a thrashing conflict. The feud is mainly between the Mistress of the Scarlet Devil Mansion, Remilia Scarlet, and the magician, Patchouli Knowledge. Despite the efforts of Fl_ndre and Words, the conflict escalates to a dangerous level. In a rare chance to try again, the two obtain the legendary timepiece called the Luna Dial and use it to go back in time.

Unfortunately, Remilia also travel with them. In the new timeline, she continues to weave her plot of destruction. Fl_ndre and Words, in the meantime, experience a hectic day. They manage to discover the motives behind everyone involved in the dark conflict, and also meet a sweet young girl who helps Fl_ndre realize the true meaning of “family.”

In their attempts to reason with Remilia and reunite the family of the Scarlet Devil Mansion, an inter-planar demon, titled Phantasm, takes possession of Remilia. The demon seeks to consume Gensokyo and quite possibly the world beyond.

Angered by Phantasm, Fl_ndre takes chase.

Welcome to Not-Life.

It was a result of time travel. Every time someone uses the Luna Dial to go back in time, the universe fights against the change and tries to combine the old timeline and new timeline together. If, however, a time traveler continues to successfully resists those compulsions, the universe will split into two, the new timeline breaking away from the result of the old timeline.

If the new timeline fails to break away, it will fall along a path that leads to the exact same results/destination as the old timeline. This system is in place because it is more efficient to "rewrite" timelines rather than split into two parallel ones. Of course, Flandre and Words successfully split the timeline, so they had no reason to worry about the results of the final timeline being skewed.

You open your eyes from your sleep and yawn, looking out the window of the Airplane. It's been a few hours since you got on. The plane must nearly be there now.

"Turn off your electronics, please; we are about to land," echoes through the plane. You shake your head to clear out your sleepiness, and sit up properly.

The plane shudders as it touches down, and you wait a few minutes until it's finally safe to get off. Then, standing up, you take your backpack and walk into the airport. It's bustling with people of all ages and nationalities, as one would expect from an airport.

As you walk into the airport, you reflect upon your life. You're a transfer student, 15 years old and male, transferring to a Japanese after you've been studying Japanese for quite a few years. The reason you got interested in Japanese culture, however, is fairly different: Touhou.

For some reason, the games always resonated with you, in a strange way. When you first discovered the fandom, you felt a connection to the characters for some reason, and decided to give the game a try.

You managed to beat Lunatic difficulty on first try on a single life run.

Needless to say, you were excited when you managed to get it done. But something about it just... called to you. Then, you began to look through online series and pictures. It had you hooked.

You've been a fan of Touhou since Subterranean Animism came out. Recently, though, you've been having some strange dreams that remind you of the games. The strange thing, though, is that in those dreams you were always a girl. These dreams were...

1: Favorite/strongest Touhou is a question generally frowned upon by the English Touhou fandom. Almost to the point where an individual who brings up those topics is automatically considered to be trolling.

2: The "generic male meeting up with Renko/Mary" thing is overused. Nobody is going to take you seriously with a cookie cutter into like that.

First off, the question wasn't for the favourite/strongest Touhou. The question was... well, just read the title.

I ignored the prodding for the moment. Suika was certain to try to bait me into saying or doing something stupid. If I knew her well, and I thought I did, she'd probably try to bring Alice into the mix and have a laugh while I was in a tight spot. Not giving her the satisfaction of playing along was worth the risk of getting pelted with spitballs later on. I'd hold off from any preemptive strikes for the foreseeable future as well.

“Hey, Kaguya,” I called out to her softly, trying to avoid attracting Mima's attention. Last thing I needed was another one of her acerbic remarks. The transfer student was clearly new at the whole stealth game in class as she turned around to face me. I decided not to comment on it, instead hoping to get the message out before anyone noticed. “Would you like to have lunch with me today? I kind of want to talk to you about a couple of things.”

“Sure thing,” she replied with a smile, “I'll look forward to it.”

“Ms. Hoursaisan,” Mima interrupted our little interaction. “I know it's difficult being a new student and you don't really know anyone yet, but I would recommend you avoid associating yourself with chronic malingers and petty troublemakers like the young man that sits behind you. Nothing good will come of giving him any attention.”

[-y-] Keep on driving. You're just being paranoid.
It was a 2/2/2 vote. I picked the two that didn't send all the bear in the city on your tail, and flipped a coin. Never mind, someone voted. I was too far along to change it, but I'm glad it settled itself.

You shouldn't react so rashly to this car. Granted, you are quite certain that it is following you. However, you are on a major highway circling a large city. The chance that you might see two of the same cars behind you is larger than zero.

Instead, you decide to try to play things safely. Turning away from you introspection of the vehicle in your mirror, you start looking at the road signs to see how far it is to the next exit. "…Alright, that seems like it's the best way out of here…"

Minoriko frowns a bit as she tries to lean forward and check the car herself. "So, we're going to keep driving? I have the feeling that we can't exactly get away as it is."
