To Aoi,

Truthfully, I’ve written a letter before this one, but it featured several pages in length. For your sake, I’ll abbreviate.

Two weeks prior, I found myself enraptured in yet another dusty book. From its exterior, it seems to be more of an antique than reading material. Its print, however well preserved, was worn by time’s grasp, and I could hardly turn the page without fear of tearing it by the seam.

I realize that this is hardly noteworthy, so I’ll spare you the detailettes and get to the point: It was written in Japanese. I’ll answer your misgivings now. For one, no, I did not decide to suddenly learn a second language. I am, unfortunate as it is, still an Englishman and know only English. And secondly, yes, I did check my mental state and have decided that I am (mostly!) still sane.

I was never one to believe in the occult, but I have no further explanation than to think less about it and deem it as “magic.” I know you’re more of an expert in this, so I’ll leave this situation to your judgment.

Please share your thoughts on this, lest I go mad.

Bilingually yours,
Mark Corderoy

To Aoi,

This is the third, undelivered letter that has been placed at the corner of my desk. I’ve half a mind to scatter them into the fireplace—they were, after all, only addressed to you—but our correspondence has yet to be settled.

I am no stranger to having the little joys of my life wrested away from me. But the least you can tender is closure, and I’ll be direct: What has become of Mark Corderoy? My own bitterness aside, the time that we—that is, the humans—have is decidedly limited, and I’d rather Mark and I both not waste away without knowing what has happened to each other.

You said you shall not interfere with the Outside anymore. Yet, I know of worse offenders who dared to meddle with the outer world and suffered no consequence. Is that not unfair? I direct that to both you and myself. Frustrated as I am, I implore you to break your silence. Why should you care about the balance between the Border? Do you really believe that your sudden refusal to ferry these letters will change anything?

Awaiting a reply instead of cold silence,
Hieda no Akyuu

Warning: Common sense need not apply here.

This will be a part of Nanowrimo too, so the next update will come tommorow and so forth. Writing for 30 days straight should be super easy with this.

It's also an attempt for me to get back my writing grooves as I've been absent for a long time now.

That all said, enjoy if you can, tommorow.

Yorigami Shion was unhappy.

Yorigami Shion does not know why she is unhappy.

“I’m unhappy.” She asked the poverty-stricken shrine maiden drinking tea on a Sunday afternoon. Surprisingly, the shrine maiden did not chase her away on sight for some reason.

“When are you not unhappy?” Reimu replied, before staring at her, “You don’t seem to be spreading misfortune right now, however.”

“I’m not unhappy most of the time! I’m just not actively happy!” Shion loudly protested. Reimu instinctively threw up a wall of amulets to deflect the burst of misfortune from the goddess.

“In that case, did something bad happen to you. Worse than usual, I mean. Where’s Tenshi?”

“Tenshi said she was sick with the flu today. I was going to ask her about what to do before I came to you.”

“But celestials can’t get sick, not even through misfortune, unless…” Reimu’s face darkens, “Tenshi’s losing her celestial status from staying on earth for too long.”

Shion’s hands feel clammy, and her legs wobbled. “That…that can’t be the case! If Tenshi will become a mortal, she would die!”

“I am just theorizing here. But if Tenshi really is becoming a mortal or afflicted with some other malady, you’d better watch it with the misfortune around her lest it get worse.”

“Watch it with the misfortune?”

“You can control misfortune with your mood, from what I observed. If you stay in this state and restrain yourself, you can hang around Tenshi, or anyone, without issue. Problem is, your own misfortune is going to get worse, if the other binbougami I knew were any examples.”

“So if I stay unhappy, Tenshi will be safe, even if I suffer more?”


Reimu solemnly nodded, “Yes.”

=====

“Off to visit your celestial friend again, Shion?” Joon called out to her younger sister.

“Yes, sis.” Shion replied, straightening her bow and her raggedy sweatshirt.

“Well, be sure to shake a few coins off her as usual.”

“Right.” Shion finished and turned. “Jo’on, hit me.”

The younger sister looked up from he

Reimu lay down, arms outstretched, on the cold wooden floor. Cicadas hummed in the distance. The shrine offered some shade from the oppressive summer heat, but she was drenched in sweat regardless. As she laid there she cocked her head and made a level attempt to kill the sun with her glare. The sun seemed to mock her as it remained firmly rooted in the sky. The miko's rage built and built as the giant red fireball continued to defy her. How could it possibly be this hot?!

A realization hit Reimu. The sun shouldn't be strong enough to resist her powerful Hakurei stare. She's the Shrine Maiden of Paradise damnit! That subterranean sun does what she tells it to, what makes the one up here think its so special?! It must be so strong because someone else caused it to be that way. An incident! A streak of red fabric shot away from the Hakurei Shrine to solve the incident at once, leaving rustling summer leaves in its wake.

Reimu rode the arid currents around Gensokyo on the hunt for suspicious people. As she glanced around the Human Village, Reimu caught sight of a redhead floating in a basin of water. Wait, no. On closer inspection it was a literal red head. Next to it, a headless body dressed in red and black fanned itself. Sekibanki was beside herself with heat exhaustion and could not see that her presence as a decapitated torso scared the whole village out of their now empty streets. It obviously was her fault and had nothing to do with the blazing red sun overhead, and what was about to happen next had nothing to do with jealousy over someone else getting to cool off in a pool. Reimu nodded to herself at this line of logic, confident in her deductive skills, and dropped down to chase the poor overheated rokurokubi out of town with her gohei.

The sun continued to shine and Reimu seemed no closer to solving the incident. Clear dry skies made it easy to spot some of the more unusual floating fixtures of the realm. Flying near to the Shining Needle Castle, she noticed the drum Tsukumogami reclining in front of a strange machine. It was a small white box that showered the girl with such a gale that her crimson hair splayed out behind her like a fan. Reimu got a glint in her

“Lee, have you finished moving my materials inside?”

Shizuha poked her head out of a window, searching for the newest addition to her and Minoriko’s household. She soon spotted him stagger around the corner of the storehouse clutching several cloth bags.

“Almost!” he managed to grunt, panting from both the weight of the pigments she had asked him to fetch and the smothering heat of the Gensokyo summer.

Shizuha muttered something distinctly unbecoming of a goddess of even her modest stature, then ducked back in. Internally, she scolded herself. Wasn’t she supposed to be the responsible one? At least Minoriko was tending to her fields and not around to witness the gaffe.

Lee had finished putting away the bags and was laying down in the shade by the time Shizuha walked over with a pitcher of water and a few worn cups. She sat down beside him while he caught his breath and poured him a cup.

“Thank you.” He accepted the water with a grateful smile.

Shizuha found her eyes drawn to him as he drank in silence. She lingered on how his larynx punctuated the contour of his neck and followed it as it moved up and down as he swallowed the water. Out of habit, she found herself rendering her subject in terms of shapes and lines, of color and shading - means by which to more easily depict him with her brush.

Perhaps as a painter, it was natural for her to see her shaman through the lens of her art. By the same token, however, Shizuha had to wonder how she appeared to him.

Lee interrupted her thoughts with a satisfied sigh as he finished the last of the water. “Say, Shizuha, what’s in these?”

“Sappanwood bark, powdered cochineal, clusiaceae sap…”, she noted a lack of understanding on his face. “Pigments for my paints.”

“Oh, that’s right! Autumn’s right around the corner. The most exciting time of year for you and Minoriko, right?”

Shizuha would have called it the only exciting time of year, and even that much would be a very generous interpretation of the word. There was little excitement in being overshadowed by her younger sister yet again.

Rather than dwell on it, she reached ou

The ambush was executed flawlessly. It took place at the bend on the narrow trail as it dipped downwards around a small hill. The dense, thorny, and berry-laden bushes hedged the path on the sides. At the extremely-close range, the moment it would take to turn around and run was pointless. Short of leaping upwards and flying, there was no escape.

The ambusher stared at me firmly, her eyes showing little of their usual emotion. Likewise, her dark lips were drawn taut and her breathing silent. There was tension in her haunches as she leaned forward, appearing ready to leap should she detect a false move. Countless generations of careful breeding had endowed her with confidence in the hunt and prowess. That this was quite underappreciated in the village at present was a shame.

Her ancestors had been the proud sort, no doubt, used to the hard life of tracking and cornering youkai. How many cousins had been killed in their pursuit? Survival was never guaranteed, even when the conditions were favorable. Surprise was certainly something that favored the hunter but so did wits and the ability to collaborate with others. Before my time, only a few generations ago, hunters had gathered in groups and set out to exterminate troublesome youkai together.

Of course, today she was on her own. She may have been tracking but she was not hunting. Extermination was not on her mind either. Her behavior was instinctual, something that originated in her blood but was, ultimately, a vestigial impulse. Though impressed, I did not smile, instead crouching down to level my gaze with hers.

The bitch remained impassive for a few moments more. As I stretched my hand out, however, flickers of her usual gaiety reappeared in her dark eyes and the black lips curled at their base into something that could be generously interpreted as analogous to a smile. Her pink tongue flitted out as she brought her face close to my hand, making something of an imperious showing as she wrinkled her nose to sniff me.

I brushed my fingers against her soft cheek. It was more an acknowledgement than an act of affection.

She had managed to find me yet again.

I had left home early, bef

Pretty much, yeah.

It'd turn the title into 'Reverse The Linearity of the Unmaze Cathedral'
Which would be a clue to use the pages it didn't mention yeah.

I thought it was clever, but in a way it's really obtuse insn't it?

Either way, I'm glad you had fun and you can expect something like this once again in the future maybe. It'd definitely be a fun a second try.

Oh, is that what you were going for with the clue? Then maybe it would have been better if the clue read "Remove a D at the first word of the title and add a 'The' afterwards as well." Because with the wording as it is, I thought a "the" needed to be removed.

"Ayayaya!"

"Oh dear..." mumbled Shou. It seemed that the annoying crow had come back again.

The Myouren Temple's doors opened, and Byakuren walked out. She sighed.

"Aya, leave. I do not want to say anything more, and it is not right for me to do much more than order you off the temple grounds," said Byakuren, her face unmoving. A youkai in a white dress and blue attire turned around the corner and eyed the tengu. Even the humans and youkai dusting off the stones got a little more erratic in their movements. Aya's grin didn't waver. She just saw it as an opportunity to get more scoops.

The crow tengu marched to Kyouko, one of the people with a broom.

"Good morning." The yamabiko was not very joyous today, or at least right now.

"Morning! How's life here?" Aya's cheeriness tried to poke around for a news story. "Anything new?"

"New?" Kyouko asked.

"Most newsworthy thing right now," a human interjected, "is that Aya's also acting like a yamabiko."

Both of the youkai turned to the human at that line.

"What? I was just mentioning that."

"...alright, a reporter can work with that..." said Aya. "Your nose is pretty small! It looks good on you!"

Now everyone was staring at the duo. Kyouko was now really puzzled at the tengu's train of thought; it took her some moments to realize what she was trying to pull.

"Your nose is pretty small!" replied Kyouko. "Must suck to show absolute loyalty to authority at the cost of everything else."

"Must suck to show absolute loyalty to authority at the cost of everything else." repeated Aya.

The tension was as thick as a beaver's dam, thick enough to stop a leaf from falling to the ground. Both sides were prying at each other, trying to twist the presence or absence of words into an insult or compliment.

"How's your species doing?" said Kyouko. "Probably not so well, I imagine. I feel a bit sorry for you now."

A heartbreaking story is currently unfolding that’s sure to have devastating ramifications for years to come. Just moments ago, without any warning, the worst person you know just made a great point.

“If someone molests a fairy, then they are a pedophile, no excuses.
Even if X is making the forest better, they are still a fairy fucker!”
.

This is absolutely crushing news, and it’s unclear if recovery will ever be possible.

The tragedy occurred just a few moments ago during a debate about politics occurring among your friends. Out of nowhere, the most loathsome person you’ve ever met in your whole life chimed into the argument with a completely valid and irrefutable point. Every attempt to formulate a rebuttal to just the most insufferable asshole on the planet failed miserably because, for the first time ever, that piece of shit’s logic was entirely unassailable.

This is the kind of horrific event you always assume only happens to other people, but never to you.
It’s amazing how life can change in an instant. One moment, everything’s normal, and the next you’re unable to find a single flaw in the intricate and logically sound reasoning of this fucking self-important, endlessly irritating prick. Up until now, everything that’s comes out of that girl’s mouth is pure dogshit, so now that she’s strung together an eloquent and convincing opinion, you’ve been completely blindsided.

In some ways, that’s the worst part of it: You were so used to this unbearable cretin saying nothing but garbage that you had no way to mentally prepare yourself for the day she made an amazing and insightful comment.

While this gut-wrenching calamity has passed, the shock and the sorrow it left in its wake may never truly fade. All you can do now is try to pick up the pieces, move on, and pray that this pompous moron never makes another great point ever again.

[Narrator]
Europe, Asia, Africa
Yukari “You come in her, or I’ll come for you” Yakumo, the youkai of boundaries
visited these and all other continents
the world had to offer
and yet she still met only one man worthy of Reimu

[Yukari ”If you don’t fill that womb, you’re going in the tomb” Yakumo]
You want my maiden?
You can have her!
I left everything you need together
at my place
Now you just have to fuck her!

[Narrator]
These words called this man to Chris' house
Promising dreams greater than
he ever dared to imagine
This is the man known as THE GREAT ANON MCNOMYOUIS!

[Chorus consisting of just Ran and some other fox-girls]
Come aboard and bring along
all your outsider sperm
Together we will become family
once you marry her!

ANON!

[Verse]

Condoms left behind
they will only slow us down
Your cock will be your guide
Raise the shaft and ease her down

That legendary child
That the end of nine months reveals
is only legendary
'til you too make it real

Through it all
through all the intercourse
to the pleasure
through players' lies

Know that I will be there
to stand by you
just so I know you cum inside

[Chorus of the same people, except Chen happens to walk in to Ran’s embarrassment]
So come aboard and bring along
all your outsider sperm
Together we will become family
once you marry her

There's always room for more
if you want to try for twins
ANON, ANON, Fill dat HAKUREI!!!

I'd usually prefer not to shill an offsite repost, but there were a couple of sore spots in the pacing that really, really started to bother me the more I looked this thing over, and which I've since attempted to patch up. You can find said patched-up copy here, if you at all give a shit: https://ao3.org/works/33878584

Hopefully the addition also makes it a little more explicit what exactly Reisen's trying to do in this short.
