“Daiyousei! Where are you?!” I didn’t like this place. It had this visceral feeling of hopelessness and despair so thick you can lick it off the air. The kind that not even animals could stand to be in. Racoon and crows and such would run (or fly?) away in horror while bugs crawl away as fast as their tiny legs could carry them before they’re crushed by a deep sense of existential terror invoked by a cruel uncaring world. Darkness so deep and entrenching that even Rumia would stay the hell away from it.

But I didn’t care.

Even if I had to stop a meteor.

Even if I had to jump into a pool of lava.

Even if I to jump into a jaws of a mad raging beast!

I’ll still find you Daiyousei! Just wait right there and I’ll find you!

“Cirno?”

“Uh… What do you want Reimu?”

“Get the fuck out of my donation box.” So that’s why it smelled of dead dreams and poverty.

= = = =

“Hey! Come out you guys! I need your help!” I kept kicking on the tree where the fairy trio lived in. “Get your lazy butts out and help me for crying out loud!”

“...”

“Come on guys are you still mad about the last time I kicked your butt? I don’t really remember it all quite well, something about doors and seasons or whatever but come on! Let bygones be bygones right?”

“...”

“Okay fine! If you’re all going to be a buncha sore losers then whatever! I’ll find Daiyousei all by myself! Some friends you are!”

“...”

= = = =

I flew over to the front gate of the Scarlet Devil Mansion. The gate guard spends most of her time outside so she must’ve saw where Daiyousei went! It has to be so!

“Hey! Meiling! Meiling!”

“Huh? Oh hi neighbor! What’s up?” When I flew over to her I saw that she was exercising… Huh?

“Uh… Meiling?”

“Yeah Cirno?”

“Are you… Are you doing one handed push ups… On top of a knife?”

“Oh? Oh! Yeah this?” She proceeded to do a hand stand on the knife that was embedded into the ground. “Just practicing with my Qi is all. If I focus all of it in a single point then my skin becomes harder than diamonds. Cool eh?”

“That’s so awesome I- Wait wait wait that’s not what I was going ask you!” I slapped myself in the face. “Meiling! I need your help! Have you seen Daiyousei anywhere?!”

“Huh? Oh you mean that shy green haired fairy that’s always with you?” She went into deep thought. “Hmmm… Sorry but I haven’t seen any greater fairies around for a bit… Hmmm… Have you checked anywhere along roads near the human village? I heard you guys like to prank humans that way.”

“I haven’t found her there. In fact I haven’t seen Daiyousei inside the human village itself!”

“Huh… What about the Garden of the Sun? I heard you guys like to play over there.”

“Oh yeah! I almost forgot about the place! Thanks Meiling!”

“No prob!” As I flew away, I caught a glimpse of the head maid suddenly appearing behind the gate guard as she looked somewhat annoyed.

“Can I have my knife back please?”

= = = =

“Darn it I can’t seem to find Daiyousei anywhere…” Even though I said to myself that I’d jump in the gaping mouth of a wild ravenous beast or whatever I’d still like to spend as little time in the garden as possible.

Normally it’s a place where fairies can play as much as they want. An endless landscape of beautiful sunflowers that shower in the life giving rays of the sun. It’s so nice that me and Daiyousei would just spend the entire day just flying around the garden without a care in the world.

But for some reason, something just felt off about it. I don’t know why but… This place is a lot more quiet then usual…

Daiyousei, just where have you gone? I mean, you were here just a few days ago. I remember you and me finding this odd box thing that made weird screechy noises and bringing it over to my place. I’m pretty my old place got broke or something so I moved into an underground cave near Misty Cave. What a lucky find.

We parted ways and you went over to your house to sleep while I went to sleep at my cave. After that it’s as if you’d walked out of Gensokyo and into the outside world. At first I thought you were playing a trick on me and yeah I played along and laughed about it for a bit but… It’s been three days already.

Where are you Daiyousei?

I kept searching around the Garden of the Sun. I checked everywhere, on the edge of the garden, in between the flowers, above the flowers, on the path, everywhere!

But I still couldn’t find Daiyousei.

“Daiyousei!” I screamed out loud with as much force as I could. “Where are you!”

“...”

“...”

“...”

I got nothing. “Well that was a waste… Wait…”

Some of the flower started to rustle. At first I thought it was because there was another fairy behind it but something came to me. The flowers all around me are rustling. “Uh oh…”

I saw it. A force of unstoppable nature that few can rival.

“YOU!”

I’m dead. I am so dead.

“I FINALLY FOUND YOU!”

Yuuka Kazami was flying straight at me.

“STAY WHERE YOU ARE!”

[] Run away!

“I ain’t afraid of no flower youkai!” I took out a spellcard and started charging it up.

“Wait I wasn’t… Ah screw it, I’ll do it after I calm you down!” She took out her parasol and threw out a round of danmaku at me. They were small spinning flower petals, their colours ranging from blue, yellow, pink, and more. They looked fragile, but that only hides their sheer destructive power. She might as well just have shattered an entire rainbow to throw at me. Funny thing is, she could probably do that.

“Ah!” I managed to dodge them just in time for me to use one of my spellcards. “Ice Sign: Icicle Machine Gun!”

A large chunk of ice forming on both of my hands. Spikes jut out as I point them at Yuuka. In a burst of power, the ice that encased my hand blew off, sending a series of sharp, high speed icicles at Yuuka.

In response, she took out a spell card of her own. “Flower Sign: Wonderful Flower of the Sun!”

From the tip of her parasol, the head of a gigantic sunflower grew and blocked all of my icicles. They didn’t even pierce the giant flower. They all just shattered on impact. I immediately poised to dodge the spell when I saw I realized something extremely odd. It was slow, too slow, almost embarrassingly slow.

“Eh? That’s it? You’re sending a slow-moving flower at me?”

At first, she just gave me a blank stare, but then, with me almost missing it, she gave the faintest form of a grin on her face.

“Uh… Why is it shaking?”

You know how sunflowers are packed full of sunflower seeds? Well, this one shot out all its seeds at me! It was practically a hailstorm!

I danced, fluttered and weaved through the storm of seeds, though one did manage to nick me in the shoulder. “ARGH! Darn it! Ice Sign: Fairy Spin!” I spun around at an intense speed before I started throwing icicles in every direction to destroy most of the seeds... though I felt that I was forgetting something. Oh crap, I almost forgot about it! That giant sunflower was still flying straight at me!

I stopped myself from spinning any further and felt my stomach churn as I fought against my own momentum. I flailed around in the sky, unable to tell what was up, down, left, right, and whatever other directions that exist, but I was too busy to list them all off.

My wings pulsated with power as I dashed forward. I still had no idea what direction I was facing, and I was likely to crash face first into the giant sunflower, but my battle instinct, hardened by years of combat, otherwise known as getting the shit kicked out of me, told me that I wasn’t going to regain my sense of balance anytime soon, so I might as well get the hell out of there!

My gamble paid off as I found that, yes, I didn’t dash headfirst into a giant sunflower of death.

“All right, now you asked for… wait. Why is everything spinning?” Oh yeah, Fairy Spin makes me dizzy. Dammit, I still haven’t gotten my balance back quite yet.

“Flower Sign—” Uh oh. “—Gentle Falling Petals!”

I looked left, no, right. Below? Crap, I needed to get my head on straight!

I slapped myself a few times in the face until my brain stopped spinning inside my skull. My cheeks were sore as all hell after doing that but at least it got the job done. I looked around as I expected a swarm of petals to mess me up. But I didn’t see any.

It was then that danmaku from above, a purple flower petal, went and pierced my right leg. “GAH!” I looked above me and saw that there were black shadows floating in the sky. Wait, no. Those weren’t just some random black shadows—those were flowers soaring high in the sky. They shot out their petals at me and rapidly regrew them to start the process all over again.

“Crap!” I froze the nearest danmaku, starting a chain reaction as my ice spread over to other danmaku. It created a shield made of ice that I used to protect myself with. Didn’t last long though—getting constantly pelted with danmaku eventually broke it. I was always used to danmaku flying straight at me from the front, but never from above! I hated this!

“AHH!” I focused on dodging and freezing the danmaku. I focused so much on defending myself that I didn’t notice Yuuka floating near me. By the time I did, all I saw was her with a soft serene smile on her face and her closed parasol held right behind her.

“Batter up!” With a mighty swing, she smacked me right in the face with said parasol. I couldn’t really do much after that. Mostly because I blacked out.

When I came to, I was a complete mess. My body was in utter pain, and my clothes were ruined. This was just not my day.

Looking around, I saw that I was in the middle of a crater at the edge of the Garden of the Sun. Standing over me was Yuuka with a worried look on her face. “Hmmm… I tried to give you a light tap, but it seems that I still overdid it a bit. I’ll admit, I do get a bit overzealous every once in a while,” she remarked. “How are you feeling?”

“Horrible.”

She shrugged. “Can you still stand up or fly?”

“Not really…”

“I’ll just carry you then.” In a single motion, she picked me right off the ground and swung me over her shoulders. “Now, my original intention was that I wanted to ask you a few questions.”

“You didn’t look like you wanted to ask a question. It looked like you wanted to rip my throat out…” I responded.

I expected her to sigh or deny it or something, but instead she just giggled about it. “Being unable to deny a fairy is such an odd feeling, but it’s not an unwelcome one.”

“Hey, you calling me an idiot?” I remarked. “I’ll wipe your stupid smile off your dumb face if you call me an idiot again.”

“While I’m always open for rematches, I don’t think you’re in any position to ask for one.” She sighed. “By the by, Cirno was it? I heard your name from the other fairies a while back. Tell me, have you seen your friends anywhere?”

“That’s the thing. I haven't seen my friend anywhere. I’ve all over Gensokyo but I couldn’t find any traces of her. Um… have you seen Daiyousei?”

“Sorry but I haven’t seen any of the Greater Fairies for a while.” She explained. “Tell me, what do you hear right now?”

I listened for a bit. I heard the gentle, soft wind blowing, the rustling of flowers, the buzzing of bugs. “Just the same old sounds I always hear. What’s this got to do anything with Daiyousei?”

“Why, a lot of things really,” she said. “When I have these calm walks along the garden, the fairies would run around, laughing and playing. I don’t particularly mind it. Fairies are, after all, creatures of nature, and in fact, their existence helps with the overall health of the garden.”

“…And where are you going with this?” I asked impatiently.

“You really want to find your friend, do you?” she said. “Well, to answer your question, for the past three days, I have not heard any laughter from the fairies that like to regularly visit the garden. Not even a single giggle.” She took on this pondering look. “It’s odd, don’t you think?”

“So…?”

“Well, trying to be clever with a fairy might not be so productive, now that I think about it,” she said. “What I’m trying to say is that for some reason or another, every fairy in Gensokyo but you and the ones at the Scarlet Devil Mansion have disappeared.”

“Wait, YOU MEAN EVERYONE HAS DISAPPEARED?!”

For some reason, she seemed oddly amused. “If I had to hazard a guess, you were so preoccupied with trying to find your friend that you failed to realize the disappearance of your own species.”

“I feel like I’m being insulted again.” I said.

“It’s to be expected. A fairy, after all, is a fairy.” She replied. “Though I do find it frustrating that none of the others have found out. Sure, I expected such a slow response from the shrine maiden, but from everyone else, it’s almost unforgivable.”

“That’s it! Whoever’s behind this, I’ll kick their butt! I’mma freeze ‘em! You hear me?!”

“Oh? Fired up, I see? Glad to see you recover quickly.”

I flew off Yuuka’s shoulder at full speed, fully determined to rescue my fellow comrades in arms. I didn’t go that far. My body remembered that it just got out of a danmaku duel, and so I fell just a few meters away from Yuuka.

She gave a small giggle before she walked over to me and picked me up. “Perhaps I’ll be of assistance?”

“Fine. I might need some help getting… somewhere.”

“Oh? And where might that somewhere be?”

“Hmmm…”

[] “I think we might need to call Reimu for some help.”

[] “Hey, did you know that Marisa actually has a shop? Maybe we can pass by and ask her for some help.”

[] “At my place. Because I want a new set of clothes.”

[] “Wait, you said something about the Scarlet Devil Mansion?”

Nah, Marisa's home in the forest also doubles as a magic shop. One that also doesn't get much if at all customers due to being situated in the middle of the forest.

Also looks like the SDM option won. I'll get to writing then.

For lewd. Just like the other fairies. Except Star of course.
