{-} Embrace the dark side... wait, no, do the exact opposite of that.

Thankfully, I do have a certain amount of practice at controlling at my emotions. Unstable emotions make for unstable magic, and safety aside, the secret sealing club's budget puts a hard limit on explosive misfires per month. Look, the point is, I was able to wrestle my irritation under my control.

I still did need a focus for unleashing the magic, and the first thing that occurred to my mind was programming class, of all things. Just like testing a program, things would fail for the most idiotic reasons, and things had to be hooked up just right to-

[Placeholder Sign - Hello World]
Huh. That, just... huh. It really was that simple. Plain blue bullets literally spelled out "Hello, world!". Punctuation included, even. Considering the bullets did absolutely nothing else, I don't think it even qualified as an attack.

Hina looked at the pattern in some confusion. "Um. Well, it worked, but is that what you were aiming for?"

My bemusement turned to embarrassment, and I dismissed the spellcard with a wave of a hand. Excellent. If I ever wanted to make myself look like a complete joke, I now had exactly the spellcard to do it with. "That was just a test to get the system working. Also, um, you were right. Thanks, I guess."

"It's no trouble. Really."

That resulted in one of those silences that was destined to turn awkward, but the Koishi doll - no wait, it was Mary now - came flying out of the house, hovering next to Hina. She offered it a headpat. "So there you are. Just where did you go, anyway?"

The doll ignored the question, opting to lean into the headpat. That was adorable enough to make a dent in my irritation. I found myself smiling as I called out, "Aren't you a little old to be playing with dolls?"

Hina paused with a small blush, but Mary flew in for the hug, and after a moment of hesitation the goddess wrapped an arm around the doll. "Aren't you the one giving her directions?"

So, this isn't canon in any sense, but I had this idea, and figured it was funny enough to post. I might end up doing more random snippets like this, we'll see.

-- Some time in the future --

It was a pleasant night in the Palace of Earth Spirits. Sumireko, Orin and Utsuho were having a "girl's night out", presumably with Koishi joining them. They were probably causing trouble, but it was trouble you'd have to worry about tomorrow. They'd made the offer for Satori to join them, but she'd elected to stay in, and you joined her for a little quality time.

Hence the movie.

You'd managed to pull the necessary hardware from earth proper, and movies had turned out to be a real hit. For people in general (with Nitori, as always, capitalizing on everything), but also for Satori in particular; it turned out being able to watch normal human interaction (or, well, highly dramatized human interaction) without knowing what they would say in advance was a novel experience for her.

Of course, that did mean you had to pick movies you hadn't seen before either, but Sumireko was happy to give you some recommendations, and they were mostly reliable. Mostly.

Still, while this movie was fine, and spending time with Satori was even better, it'd be fun to have a guys' night out at some point. You could invite... um...

Huh.

"So why is it that nearly everyone in Gensokyo is female, anyway?", you asked.

Satori stopped, puzzled for a minute. "I'm not entirely sure. The typical explanation is that male youkai were almost driven to extinction due to being more aggressive before Gensokyo's creation."

That seems rather lacking. It could explain fewer male youkai, but none?

"There are one or two around, but yes. That said, I've not run into anyone who actually knows a better explanation. Plenty of speculation, but no real answers. It seems likely the event was covered up."

"Do you really want to know?" Koishi asked.

You start, having had no idea she was there. "That's... kind of why I asked the question?&qu

Dominating rival gods so absolutely that they become effeminated to the point of turning into women has something very mythology-like.

Congrats on your first non-canon Omake! Nice to see that you are thoroughly enjoying this little narrative world you've been creating.

What purpose did this bloodshed serve?

Qin Feng gripped his bow tightly.

Fists tight enough to draw blood.

Teeth clenched hard enough to shatter at any moment.

The once great and respected Heavenly Mountain Sect, gone; its legacies wiped in a single day.

Dozens of swords pierced his body, yet he did not feel the pain.

The regrets inside his heart far exceeded the pain of his body.

"Shuhang.." He discovered the discarded corpse of his comrade.

Why was it so unfair? Why were the dead even unable to close their eyes?

Looking around, he saw piles or corpses. Once his adored juniors.

Everyone was dead.

Qin Feng clenched his teeth even tighter. Looking to the perpetrator.

The Demon once sealed deep below the earth, Yun Xiaotong.

The words eternally inscribed on Qin Feng's heart came out of the demon's mouth.

"How unfortunate, only if you have trained a little more."

"Shut up.."

"You should still be proud of your achievement, with the deaths of many, one of your arrows could finally reach me."

"Truly unfortunate.." Last words came out of the demon's mouth. Even as the greatest of his sect, he was no escaper from death.

But how? How can a dying man look so calm?! His final moments were incomprehensible to Qin Feng.

Qin Feng stood up.

"Remember this clearly Bow Saint. Death is not my end, just another fate for me to overcome. Once I return from the depths of hell, there will be no one powerful enough to stop me, not even yo-"

Qin Feng pulled one of the swords from his body and pierced cut off the demon's head with it.

"It's... over."

The battle was over, the realm would remember their victory. But deep inside Qin Feng's heart, he knew no one won the battle.

Finally, Qin Feng fell down--His legs had no more strength to support his body.

What will happen to Heavenly Mountain Sect now? Only powerless children were alive.

Qin Feng simply did not know anymore.

Qin Feng was currently standing on the mountain, awaiting the heaven's judgement. Nascent Soul's tribulation is not a chaotic thunderstorm, it's a refined trial to test the cultivator's spirit.

The first lightning struck Qin Feng, just the impact would've been deadly to any mortals. His whole body shook uncontrollably, his dantians sounded like they were going to burst violently. Qin Feng gritted his teeth and endured.

The Nascent Soul realm is the first true step to becoming an immortal, a realm where one defies the heavens!

Not long after he got his body back into order, he was yet smited by another lightning bolt. The sheer size of it was enough to completely obliterate Qin Feng's new home, Kojirou already moved far away. The terrifying sound of rumbles of Qin Feng's tribulation made him shook in fear.

Then comes the third, fourth, and the fifth bolts. At this point Qin Feng was already starting to lose grasp of his conciousness, the thunders were slowing remolding his body to that of an immortal's. The process was excruciatingly painful, each strikes had double the power of the previous one. By this point the whole process could be seen throughout Gensokyo.

RUMBLE!

The sixth lightning struck him, so fiercely that it seemed to be roaring. The moment it slammed onto Qin Feng's body, he let out a miserable cry of pain. He instictively activated his Broken Void Divine Art to redirect some of the lightning into the Void(*1).

"Damnit! Why the hell didn't I do this since the beginning?!" He said quite loudly, he couldn't be bothered to even lower his voice in the current state he's in.

As the seventh lightning came rumbling down, he tried to redirect the strike to the Void. His attempt was successful, but there was still some remains that struck him.

Even the remains of the seventh lightning was already comparable to hundreds of the fifth strike!

The eighth strike took a heavy toll on Qin Feng's body, his current clothes was in tatters, hair dishiveled. He made alot of progress with the Broken Void Divine Art from depending on the techniques to pass th

"AAGH!" The man screamed in agony, everytime he replied with silence also decreases the count of intact fingers on his hand, "Stop! I'll tell you everything!"

"Oh, guess I didn't have to resort to that method." Qin Feng murmured, the man shivered in fear as Qin Feng apparoached him.

He grabbed the man by the hair and asked him, "Ready to answer now?" The man went on a thorough and detailed explanation. His name was Yang Mian, he told Qin Feng that he was from a sect hidden away. He was sent here on an order to assasinate Qin Feng while his cultivation base was still unstable from the tribulation.

All of this information was useless to Qin Feng as it seemed to him that they were just a group of mortals who just happened to stumble upon the methods of cultivation, "Also our sect has a Demigod realm powerhou-" As soon as the words left his mouth, a terrifying thunder landed right next to them. Yang Mian jumped instictively but could not get away as he was held by Qin Feng.

Qin Feng's eyebrows furrowed at this, "Even saying the name of the realm causes an undulation in the heavens, that's how powerful a Demigod realm powerhouse is." Currently he was deep in thought, there was actually a demigod aiming for his head!

"Where's your sect located?" Although seemingly a question, the way he spoke it would make anyone realize that it's a command or a threat.

Yang Mian trembled in fear, "There's a teleportation array in the bamboo forest right over there.." Qin Feng looked over at the direction he was pointing at, there seemed to really be an aura eminating from there.

He looked over to Yang Mian, who was sweating profusely, "Merely a middle-stage Qi Condensation disciple, they won't care if you're gone."
"Besides, turning you into a hostage isn't worth the effort."

Qin Feng then proceeded to slice off Yang Mian's head with his palm. Blood sprayed out dyeing Qin Feng's whole body in red, "I'll leave the corpse disposal to the vultures."

You can vote on every character's individual "choices", but you may only vote on a single character to "control.”

[[ ]] The youkai

I walk up to a brown dirt clump with a big section for a “body” and a small one for a “head”. “Wake up!”

It gets up and cranes its “head” to look at me. “What?” it says.

“Another incident,” I said.

“Awesome! Time to solve it!” The clump got up and busted its arms and legs out. “Where’s the bad guys?”

“Well, this incident is quite serious, so I—”

“Aw, it’ll be easy!” the clump said. “Remember the winter incident? The red smoke?”

“You died in both of those incidents before you even got to where the incidents were coming from…”

“So?” the clump shrugged. “I always come back after three days, and magic isn’t hard to regain even though I’m an incident resolver.” The brown blob flexes its arms in an exaggerated motion several times, bouncing its forearms around rapidly. “In fact, you should be the one on the bench for this based on your danmaku history, but who cares? The ice fairy doesn’t care.”

“She’s like an ant to a lion compared to you, but I relent. You can come.”

The dirt clod jumps up, and before you can tell it to wait for you, it rockets toward the human village like a beetle scuttling away from a prying finger. “We need to get to the village to locate the incident!” The voice trails off as the clump-turned-meteor gets farther away.

“…darn.”

{...}

“HEY!!! Zappers! Dirt clod! Brown boulder! Wait for me!”

No use. The little fairy was out traveling to “resolve” the incident. I’ll be surprised if he gets past the first peon of the incident “organization” that these events always seem to have. It would be much easier if he would actually focus on winning spell card duels, but showing off with flashy projectiles and recklessly getting hit is what his usual attempts at resolving an incident turn out to be. That, and not actually managing to find out who the mastermind of the incident even is.

I suppose it’s an extreme v

“Blazer. Later!” I thought the suggestion from Zappers was really over-the-top, but I wasn’t about to get chummy with anyone adjacent to “area with buildings recently damaged by me.”

With the extra vigor from the windows, I zoomed off towards the fight unfolding at the bamboo forest. More fairies tried to interrupt me, but it was way easier to beat them back now, so I wasn’t that worried. An earthquake shook the stalks, drawing my suspicions, but Zappers brought up frequently how earthquakes were genuinely useless for combat in Gensokyo (even as a joke) because almost everyone was able to fly. It couldn’t be from him.

At last, I arrive at the fight and pull Zappers out of the danmaku field.

“What’s the big idea?!”

“The big idea is that you don’t beat up random people that are not involved in the incident.”

“Uh, you did that too, Blazer.”

“For entertainment purposes,” I clarified. “Sorry about that! My friend gets a bit overenthusiastic sometimes!” I hollered to the other person.

“Go away and take your psyc—”

SOCIOPATH, not psychopath!”

“Please leave already!” I pull Know-It-All forward and rip off some of the flaming chunks of earth on his body. Zappers got the idea and warped off the rest of the flames with fancy light beams. A waste of energy as usual, but I didn’t have the mental stamina to tell him to not do that and brace for the upcoming argument.

“Ok, why did you think that person was involved with the incident?”

“Because new area, new bad guys.”

“But you’ve already been to this place!”

“But I got lost every time I went here.”

What?

“Zappers, do you know where we’re headed?”

“I don’t know. I thought I was supposed to be the dumb one.”

“First Keine uses some dumb logic and—”

“Just help Reimu instead! I didn’t need you anyway.”

“I was saying that—”

Another earthquake shook the ground, interrupting me.

“Can I go to the earthquake? Please?” Zappers begged

[X] I will keep Zappers around. As long as he is aiming in the general direction of the “bad guy”, things should be fine. Also, I might be in here for a loooong time without a “not lost” spell from him.

Getting a bit of a sense that Zappers and Blazer’s relationship is similar to that of the big fairy and the ice fairy.

>Zappers was now on his knees while still flying and doing some weird dance he probably stole from a religion.
I’m really curious about what this dance would look like.

Everyone’s waiting for you to continue. The thing is, you didn’t have anything to follow up after that. But you don’t want to disappoint, so you say the first thing that comes to your head.

“And then we can beat him up,” you conclude, earning the respect of battle-happy shrine maidens across the world. You’re sure Reimu’s clapping in her head with the approving nod that she’s giving you.

“...Him?” The badger sputters. “As in, the other guy… and not me, y-yes?”

“Do you want to be beaten up too?” asks Reimu.

With a somber expression, he shakes his head slowly and silently.

“Good.” The shrine maiden jerks a finger to the mountainside. “Now take us to your boss, leader, or whatever you call him.”

Despite how talkative the badger initially was, he does not say a word through the forest’s passage and the climb up the steady hillside. With Reimu following right behind the badger, it looks like he’s being walked to his execution—and the shrine maiden, his executioner. He stops at a patch of open area. Around is conspicuously clear of brush, as if all the foliage was trimmed away. All that’s missing is quiet in the forest, a dark mist that permeates through the woods, and you’d be wondering if you’re experiencing a serious case of deja vu.

A horned figure steps out from the cover of the trees. Just like the badger described, the youkai has a ruddy, taurus-like face. Dark splotches color the sides of the man’s face like oil, finished with a black muzzle that juts out. Mino, you think for a second before discarding it.

His eyes narrow at the sight of the shrine maiden and protracts his gaze, meticulously scanning each person before curtly saying, “...Guests.”

“Y-yes,” the badger says, lowering his head.

“You invited many.”

“I—I wouldn’t say that I, um, invited them, but...” The badger trails off as the bovine-headed youkai stares straight at him with his beady eyes.

First story, little lack of knowledge about touhou. Let's see how it goes

-Muenzuka, Gensokyo-

The home to purple cherry blossoms, once a year those cherry blossoms will purify the soil of Muenzuka. Truly a sight to behold and yet the sorrowful sights make it seem like the place itself is weeping.

-Anon's POV-

This attempt is the one.
You thought to yourself as you sit infront of your laptop on a plastic chair while your hands are constantly pressing keys on your butterfly keyboard.
If someone has looked closely enough they'd have noticed that on your laptop's screen, was none other than your puny attempt at trying to beat Subterranean Animism's extra stage as Reimu Hakurei.

'Holy shit, that was close. Thank god for Reimu's absurdly small hitbox' You thought to yourself as you barely dodged Koishi's "Danmaku Paranoia".

"C'mon man, when the hell is this gonna time out?" You thought as you barely graze through each bullet Koishi launches at you.

Despite having so much confident in this run, You almost used up all your bombs and you only have 1 life left. Though you have been going at this for quite smoothly so far, would be a shame if you got hit wouldn't it? As you start questioning that to yourself, you lose focus on the game for a split of a second. A split of a second was all ZUN needed to ruin your day, as a danmaku bullet closes the distance between itself and your character, you had just realized what was going on and tried to move out of the way. Only to realize it was too late, as heat spreads throughout of your body from rage you forgot that deathbombing exist, as you see the scoreboard panel coming up you only realized at the revelation that deathbombing exists. Only that it was too late by then.

"Fuck this shit, I'm goin' on r/touhou." You said as you activated a spell card "Rage Sign : Alternate F4" and began to create a new tab and searched for r/touhou.

Good luck with your studies, Author!
I'll miss this period of daily updates but will await the adventures of MAN nonetheless.
For your fiction reading, I recommend a web novel called Peculiar Soul; certain parts deal with how and why a power that can control ideas, especially in people's heads, is a frightful ability. It's also just well-written fiction, in my opinion.

It’s hard to pinpoint the precise moment you went from “nothing” to “something”. All you can really say for sure is that once you weren’t, but now you are.

Or… something along those lines. These are pretty complicated thoughts for what’s essentially a newborn.

But are you really? A newborn, that is. Before the nothing that was before the something, you could sometimes grasp the frayed threads of another life. That life was so vastly different from what you are now that you have trouble thinking of it as “your” life, but the sense of familiarity (and sometimes yearning) the memories give you are harder to deny. You were once human, then you were nothing, and now you’re something.

But enough of that for now. Your thoughts tend to ramble when you let them, so it’s best to cut them off her or nothing will ever get done.

Compared to your previous life, your senses are now completely different. Sight, smell, taste, and hearing are all gone entirely, actually. You felt like you should maybe be horrified by that fact, but the memories of your previous life had come in some time after you came into existence, so you had already adjusted to the state of things before realizing you had lost anything at all.

Your world begins and ends with your sense of touch. Perhaps some of the things you lump together with “touch” in your mind are something else entirely, but it just makes sense to do so. The most prominent thing you feel is the soothing coolness that encases you completely from all sides. If you were still capable of doing so, you would regularly be giving contented sighs. Even if you do nothing, the coolness leaves you feeling nourished and healthy at all times. If this was all there was to your life, well… you wouldn’t complain.

Alas, hypotheticals are hypotheticals, and this is reality. There exists something beyond your present state of stockpiling energy, and you intend to explore it with the little control you have. Several options are open to you, but your limited understanding prevents you from the risks and benefits of each choice.

Ah well, suppose you’ll just have to follow your gut on this one. You decide to:

The intense chirping of cicadas was what brought you back to the land of the living. You came into consciousness, but your eyes remained close, and a pounding in your head begged you to return to slumber. Try as you might though, the insistence of the cicadas urged you to stay with them. Deeming a return to dreamland hopeless, you lifted your upper body off the ground and opened your eyes.

You were sitting on a hill, covered with lush grass. You could see a lake about ten minutes ahead from you, though mist seemed to shimmer above the lake, obscuring your view of what lay across it. Mountains off in the distance surrounded you as if cradling you tightly in their embrace. This area seemed lush, peaceful, and completely foreign to you. Nothing was ringing a bell, even the grass felt different. How did you even get here? You... Actually, just remembering felt difficult right now, with so many details in your head fuzzy. You could deal with that later.

You stood up, brushing some of the grass and debris off of your pants, when you noticed a flyer about eight feet from you, caught between two rocks, the wind trying to tug it away but the rock refusing to let go. You picked up the purple paper and examined it.

>"WELCOME! ;P

>"By popular demand, here is your introduction and primer to your current tubular predicament! Where are you? You're in Gensokyo now! What is Gensokyo? A radical land of magic! Monsters are real! Youkai are real! Have gnarly fun, but be careful! If you really want to return home, seek out Hakurei! Otherwise, enjoy your mondo new future!

>"P.S. Watch out for Rumia! She's waaaay uncool for newbies! x~x"

You stared at the flyer for a few moments. You weren't sure which to find more incredulous - the outrageous claims it had made casually, or how it seemed written by someone madly out of touch with society. Like an old person, desperate to appear cool with the youth, but with no idea what the youth truly are or what they do.

As you folded up the paper to put in your pocket, a loud sound interrupted the cicadas.

Oh cool, Chimata is gonna go shopping for us. Thanks Chimata!

[X] Kogasa can wait here, but you'd like to talk to the Doctor first. Kogasa probably doesn't want to be alone right now, and you can't help but have sympathy for the girl. Even if she nearly killed you.

Not trying to go for a route with her or anything like that, but I still like her and I'd definitely like to befriend her if possible. Laughed at how close she came to unknowingly flipping that hag switch of ours though. Man... just looking forward to someone eventually discovering that preference of ours and then being relentlessly teased for it. Could be a while though, considering even we seem to be in denial about it.

Random thought, but is the gayest relationship we could get into considering our circumstances one with Miko?

I guess you could look at it that way, but considering Miko reincarnated as a woman (we were just transformed via magic, as far as we know), I don't think it would count.

Early morning rays accompanied cheerful birdsong gliding over grass covered hills and embracing soft meadowlands. In the East, the sun sluggishly began its long trek towards its apex, the plants of the meadows basked contentedly in its bright golden hue. Distantly, cattle could be spotted grazing absentmindedly in their pastures, from elsewhere a cicada was heard testing its voice. The fields and hills of Gensokyo were entranced in a harmonious serenity.

“This would make for a very good painting,” Keiko remarked to himself, though the name of the land was unknown to him.

What must’ve been a few minutes ago, on his early morning travels, he had noticed a worn dirt path out of the corner of his eye. The path branched off from the one he normally traversed, concealed snugly among the surrounding forest. He hadn’t recalled seeing the path during his previous trips, and feeling uncharacteristically adventurous, he had decided to see where this new path would take him.

He hadn’t travelled for long before all around the crowded woodland unveiled into the sprawling fields that now lay before him. It was strange, he pondered, for an entire countryside to be tucked away here without him ever noticing, after having lived near the woods for most of his adult life. Though whatever questions he had on mind were quickly dismissed, deciding that none of them were all that important.

Keiko let the strap of his duffel fall to the ground as he seated himself on the top of a particularly high hill. From here he held a lookout over a large part of the grasslands. The sight was so picturesque to him, that he half-heartedly wondered if he had stumbled into someone’s painting. He could almost see it: his back to the viewer, bag by his side, perched upon a pastel hill, the land stretching down and

I've been working on and off on the next part, I want it long enough to be satisfying after the wait. In the meantime, here's a drawing of the two that I'm more proud of. Sorry for the delay.

Image drawn by the talented Koto Inari, you can check out his artwork if you're into a creepy, Grimm-esque spin on Touhou Project.



“The Sanzu River?” Keiko asked, “Like, with the ferryman and the ghosts, and all that?”

“Unless you know of any other rivers that dead people are ferried across, this has to be the Sanzu, and we’re standing on Shigan right now,” Kaitou grimaced.

Keiko took a moment to consider everything around them, the quiet shore stretched outwards forever, rock formations rose above the river’s water, a sunset gazed over the horizon and washed, what Keiko supposed really was the Sanzu River, in its orange hue. The ghosts that gathered near the water’s edge appeared to change shape as they mingled with one another, Keiko found it hard to see any definite features on them.Even the afterlife exists here, he thought, awestruck by the surrealism of that.

“Keiko,” the badger’s voice brought him back to the present moment, his companion looked up at him worriedly, “This place isn’t meant for the living, Keiko. We shouldn’t be here, it isn’t right.”

Keiko was surprised at how frightened the badger sounded, and he began to feel pretty uneasy himself. If the fairytale monster was worried, then odds were, he had a damn good reason to be.

“You’re scared?”

The badger flinched, “It’s not that I’m scared, it’s just that we could get into serious trouble for loitering around here.” This was punctuated with another sneeze. “Not to mention this place makes me feel sick, I don’t know if it’s the cold or if my body is telling me I don’t belong here.”

Keiko grinned, “So you’re, what is it, psychic now?”

“That’s besides the point. Look, Keiko, there’s a really important person who operates on the other side of this river,” He pointed to someplace beyond the horizon, “She’s the yama. Do you know what a yama is Keiko?”

“That’s the one what judges people’s souls?”

“Yes, the judge, the one who decides where you an

[X] - A rowboat upturned not too far from the water's edge.

I like the protagonist's motivations. Adventure!

Notice: There will be open spoilers for both Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil 8: Village going forward. This will be the only warning you'll get.
=====================================================
Everything is dark, and everything is numb.

You can tell your eyes are open, at least, but there is nothing else observable to you. Your mind is as blank as your senses, your only emotion being a complex mixture of lingering sadness and relief... and a hint of anger?

Slowly, feeling begins to return, and your entire body feels sore.

That soreness quickly evolves into pain, and you close your eyes. Not that it matters. Everything is pitch black, wherever you are.

After a moment, the deafening silence of the void is broken by a woman's voice.

"My, my, still holding on, after all that? You certainly never disappoint."

You open your eyes again, but the source of the voice is too far away to make out clearly. You recognize the color purple, but little else. Which is strange, since it sounded like she was right next to you.

Enough feeling returns for you to realize you haven't been breathing, and you cough violently. You feel flecks of... something come up when you do so.

The voice continues, still as if she was only a foot away. "You certainly are in bad shape, though. Here, allow me to help."

You feel a tingling sensation across your body, followed by a second of intense pain. You only have enough energy to gasp and close your eyes again in response.

Once the pain subsides, it does so entirely. Even the earlier aches you felt are gone. You open your eyes again, and inspect your body. Despite the black void around you, you can clearly see that your body is unharmed.

You look back at the woman in the distance and finally find your voice. "What... Who are you? Where am I?"

The woman giggles. "I take it you're feeling better, now? Good. And to answer your questions, I am nobody, and you are nowhere."

The cryptic reply annoys you, but you move on to

[X] Head back into the village and try to find Alice ASAP. If you can explain the full situation, you might be able to keep Reimu in the dark long enough to get you home.

Immediately confronting and trying to explain to the duo seems too risky, they're too likely to disbelieve him after they realise he already lied about being a human named Leon, and direct combat with two of the most powerful fighters of Gensokyo would not be a good idea.

Having Alice be there to vouch for him, however, seems more likely to lead to a favourable outcome.

full agreement with the msg above me.

>>203655

regarding point c, since Remilia knows Dimitrecsu that implies that the outside world for this Genshokyo IS the Resident Evil world... which means that Sanae *definitely* knows about resident evil as and the news that's probably starting to tricking into the Moriya Shrine is probably starting to ring some alarms bells in her head.

granted this next point is probably undermining the vote I'm making, but Sanae is not the only one that has arrived recent enough to Genshokyo to know about the events of resident evil. There's also Mamizou... which means we stand a chance of seeing her when/if we go looking for Alice in the Village... with her being at the very least concerned about a potential outbreak...

Seems the most reasonable
