Thanks for the reminder. Hadn't made up my mind yet.

Let's recall the last time we were in a situation with a similar choice:

>There's nothing I can do to help her – I'm powerless, just a normal human. There's no way that I'd be able to help her out. No... I should be running toward that crack instead. I want to get away from here, away from this horrifying world. I just want to wake up from this nightmare already. I want to wake up. I want to open my eyes, and take in the comfort that this was all just a dream.

Anyone remember how well this line of thinking worked out in FoM?

Maybe I have woken from a dream, or died and gone to the afterlife. Perhaps I had always been there, or possibly there had been a life before that had been mine; probably a beautiful life. Probably a terrible life. A life is a life, though, and it was probably better than a not-life. What I have now is possibly certainly a not-life.

A life has a couple several I mean a few important things in it. One of them is happy things, and while I may occasionally have happy things, it’s not very often that I have happy things, so it is really not enough to be a life. Another important thing in a life is a death, which is a thing I will never rightly meet. Believe me, I have tried. maybe just don’t ask

A life also has people in it. My not-life only has enough people to count on my fingers when they’re all there, which is not enough at all. Maybe people aren’t real, and that would make lots of sense because I don’t know people except maybe that one visitor and now I’m getting off-topic.

What other things is in a life…? Time is in a life, I think; or maybe I don’t think it but somebody’s thinking it and I’m at least contemplating that. Well, I know I don’t have a life at all, but this is not a death, so calling my life-that-is-not-a-life a not-life would fit perfectly in my life not-life.

I’m not really sure why I started writing because I’m stupid and bored I guess I’ll just end up rambling a bit more and eventually rip up thi///s paper and scream and break something a gain a/nd stop

It is never stated, but heavily implied since we are currently working under the assumption that the demon's manipulation of the mansion inhabitants is what has caused the current situation. (Unless it is just used as an excuse/convenient lie, as I suggested earlier.)
But that's just another question to add to the ever growing pile of "things we would really like to know right now".


I never really expressed any opinions about whether I thought it was likely or not, I just threw out a bunch of random ideas as they occured to me and figured that maybe someone could use them as stepping stones to reach some other insights.
And apparently it worked. I guess.
(Not to mention, of all of those, that's actually the one that felt most likely to me at the time, even more so now.)

Honestly, you guys did pretty well. There was a lot of surprisingly good critical thought, and I felt I had to reward you for that. Like I said, the thought of just fortifying yourself in a room honestly never occurred to me... though in retrospect it seems so obvious.

“A man grows with every step he takes.”

At least, that's what your father told you. You've spent god knows how long walking and you don't feel any larger or manlier than before. Perhaps you should buy a pedometer so you could calculate what percentage of manliness that you've gained.

It would give you something to do other than count trees and throw rocks at things, which is the highlight of your day. You would be officially insane if you started to play “I Spy” by yourself when everything is a shade of green and brown. As a result, you've taken to catching insects and trapping them in a ring to fight to the death in your boredom. The winner would have the glory of travelling to fight new opponents and prove himself the ultimate bug. Nobody could beat the reigning champion of course, an adorable beetle that you have named Kabuto.

This has been the day to day life that you've lived for the last couple weeks. Always wandering from place to place, getting lost in the forest and occasionally visiting towns to restock. However, there was something different about today.

“Huh, why is there a shrine in the middle of nowhere?” You say out loud, hoping that Kabuto would reply with something other than a chirp. Of course, you are disappointed when he tries to bite your fingers for the umpteenth time

The Forest-Shrine as you decided to name it, was empty and in ruins, the stone stairs crumbled as you climbed up, sending rocks down the stairs for any other possible passersby. How long was this place abandoned? Aren't shrines supposed to be well kept? Perhaps the deity of this shrine had failed their worshippers in some way. It couldn't hurt to donate a few coins and the gods would appreciate having someone that hasn't given up on them.

You spend the better part of a day cleaning up the shrine, hoping to get some divine favor to pull strings in the future. Eventually, the sky turns dark and the rains starts to pour. Deciding that some sort of roof is better than none at all, you set up your tent in one of the side rooms. As you set down your sleeping bag, you bid goodnight to Kabuto a

Yeah, I guess it is a pretty stupid reason to stop a story. Really, I just want to reboot the thing, take a hiatus so I can really think this through.
If you guys want me to continue the story, I guess I could, though I wouldn't expect too much from it.

I also don't like the idea of running a bunch of stories with the same plot, I mean, there's 3 High School stories running at the same time, it seems kind of redundant to me.

Sorry if I'm acting kind of stupid, I'll keep writing this if I have readers.
>> No. 54987

That's a much better reason to stop this story, if you aren't pleased with where it's heading then do what you want to do. Just please tell your readers what you decide to do.

If you don't enjoy writing this then the readers (usually) don't enjoy it reading it.

Well, it's true it's a bit redundant, but not all people right each Touhou the same way. So, even if the setting is the same, it is still a different experience. Anyways, good luck on your next story. Thanks for the daily updates though.

I hate dust.

It's so... dusty.

What little of my face remains exposed would probably have been blackened beyond recognition by now, were it not for my power. Well, I'd probably be mostly blind, too. I knew I should've brought a pair of goggles or something. Then again, it probably wouldn't have helped all that much; the range of visibility in this dust storm is practically nonexistent. I reach a hand out in front of myself, against the wind, and I can barely make out my fingers.

It's alright, though. I can sense my surroundings rather clearly regardless of the weather conditions. Which is good, because they're not going to be changing anytime soon.

Lightning strikes the ground near me, accompanied with a deafening thunderclap. I haven't been here long - maybe half an hour or so - yet I've already lost count of how many times this has happened so far. Patches of glass-like surface are periodically exposed and buried by the neverending dust storm here and there, scars left in the ground by these strikes.

I pull back my hood just a little, glancing upwards and squinting at the sky shrouded in ashen clouds. What are the odds of lightning hitting me, I wonder? It's come pretty close a few times, that's for sure. I wipe the sweat from my brow into my sleeve, noticing the edges have begun to turn a scorched black color. I did try to pick out clothing that wouldn't spontaneously combust in this heat, but outside of stealing an asbestos suit from somewhere, this was the best I could do.
It's generally better to go on a trip in something that's comfortable to wear anyway, I've always thought.

Pulling the hood back down over my eyes and adjusting the red scarf protecting the rest of my face, I proceed forward.
Well, "forward" is rather vague in a chaotic wasteland such as this. I'm mostly just following wherever it is my legs will take me. Being able to sense my surroundings isn't particularly helpful when nothing looks the way I remember it being. Doesn't exactly make it easy to find what I'm looking for, either.

"Alfred!" I scream, panic causing my heart to clench.

This cannot be happening. It isn't fair. After everything we've been through, after he showed incredible valor and determination, Alfred deserves better than this. He can't die now! By all those above, we're supposed to be working to restore a little justice to the world! How could this be happening?!

I... I just met him. He's someone to talk to. Someone to share my hobbies with, who actually listened with interest. He wanted to paint me, of all things. I wanted to take the time to get to know him, to spend my days off with him. Hell, I wanted to get advice from Komachi on how to... date him.

You know, technically "green stars" are still nuclear eyes.

I don't believe Parsee is worth worrying about (at least not the way you likely meant it). Her being distracted was likely foreshadowing.

When the three of them got outside the house before (her, Eiki, and Alfred), I had thought that her being distracted was due to picking up jealousy vibes from Rinnosuke. However, now I believe that she was picking up such from whatever this thing is. In a number of books, I've read that often enough dimensional invaders like this are somehow "jealous" of the physical, rational world and its inhabitants (the Things from the Dungeon Dimensions in the Discworld series come to mind most prominently for me), which is likely why she got distracted just before the attack.

A real rollercoaster of youth.

“You're key in all of this,” I told Kaenbyou. “Let's face it, it didn't go too well last time I tried talking to her and it probably would just overwhelm her to have Patchy there as well.” I knew that that truth didn't make it any easier to swallow. It was a grave responsibility and we weren't exactly adding anything new to the table. So, naturally, as any impressionable youth would , I turned to sappy sentimentally. “you need to show your love. If you open up your heart I'm sure your feelings will get through to her. That's all that needs to happen. You need to trust in her and have her trust in you.”

Kaenbyou didn't immediately acknowledge what I said. She looked down at the table, tracing her finger across the dusty surface and drawing lines. “So what now?” she asked.

“I don't think either of us can tell you what to say. You probably need to think about what you really want to say and how you want to say it. In the end, you are the only one who knows what she's really like.”

“A practiced speech isn't so important if the goal is intimacy,” Patchy interjected.

I just stare at the bloody stain that is all that remains of Kasen. What happened to her body? Was she carried away? Dissolved somehow? I wonder if any of us will ever get to know. Tears sting at my eyes, but I forcefully blink them away. Now is not the time to break down. However much I might want to.

Parsee is staring at the empty crawlspace with dead eyes, the axe held limply in her hand. Behind us, I can hear the others whispering to each other, stunned, but right now I only have eyes for Parsee. I... think that I can understand. She tried so hard, but she just wasn't fast enough to save Kasen. How must that make her feel?

Carefully, I set my hand on Parsee's shoulder, and she reaches up to squeeze it. After a moment, I slide my arm around her shoulder, and Parsee drops the axe to the floor, turning to gather me into a hug. I return it, both seeking and returning comfort as the blonde youkai heaves a shuddering breath.

I've issues with jealousy, but I know I got your interest!

I figured, why the fuck not? So I went along for the ride!

No end in sight, all I could do was sit in the corner and glower.
