THE STORY SO FAR:
The world has ended, but five (well, four and a half) humans get a chance to do it over, and make things right. Only problem is, for their second go around, they're not going to be 'human'...

With the reborn Inaba Akyuu and Kicchou Reimu now awake and active, they begin the search for the other three: Marisa the Ordinary Magician, Kosuzu the Youma book collector, and Youmu, the half-phantom swordswoman. It is the third of these three that they manage to make contact with first.

But perhaps the ripples in fate caused by attempting to defy it go deeper than any of them yet understand...

“Hey… you sure you’re alright?”

Reimu turned to Youmu, already irritated. “Why do you care?!”

The gardener put her hands up defensively. “It’s just… you seemed a bit sad.” That, and the Shrine wasn’t anywhere near its normal level of cleanliness. Snow had piled up a bit, and the donation box had been heavily frosted.

Can't we just talk down Sumireko once the Occult Orbs start appearing and convince the Taoist to seal the Lunar Capital stone one in Senkai ?

After only three updates, and nearly 300 posts total... It's time for a new thread! You can find it here: >>207705

I could have, and maybe should have, started a new thread for the last update, but if we do ever hit the insanity of a two-update thread, I want it to be entirely 'real' posts, without things like vote bribery. Maybe we'll get there in time!

This time, Imma shout out Urban Student in Limbo! One of the heartiest stories on the entire site, with around 400 pages worth of story across it's eight threads (for comparison, this entire thread is about 14 pages), and with a plot that is definitely thickening.

It was an ephemeral fantasy. He yearned for her imperfections and mortal complications, dreaming of distant memories that would never again be realized. And, desperately, he wished to stop thinking about anything, or anyone, else. But how could the Imugi do so, when the tides of remembrance constantly resurfaced his barest emotions?

The serpent wanted to stay with her everafter—truly, he did. And by his will, he could manufacture such a reality. But he understood. His Kitsune did not wish to bind him to eternal suffering at her expense. He would not—and would never again—make her miserable. But his dilemma was that, no matter his choice, he would have to face her sorrows. So he had to set them both free.

Still, in his own selfish want, he postponed that decision because, more than ever, he wished to be by her side… however briefly that was.

“I shall let you go,” the Imugi said softly. “But, if it wouldn’t be too much, could we spend just a moment longer here? Together?”

His Kitsune allowed herself a quiet smile. It held a familiar warmth only to the Imugi. “Of course, my Dragon.”

They flew between the Heavens with the stars as their guiding lights and the clouds as their foundation. Time continued to pass despite the Imugi’s silent protests.

“Kanami,” he called to her.

“Yes?”

He wished to talk to her about their daughter, and how fast she has grown despite her age and upbringing. However, guilt overtook his words; even as he loved his daughter now, the Imugi was ashamed that he had ever thought to direct his misguided anguish toward her.

“Our child, Seoyu, is currently tending to the plains in my absence,” he forced out.

“I know.” The Kitsune’s motherly worries were made apparent in her expression. “Though you may not have felt my presence, I have always been watching over you two… perhaps in vain hopes that I would eventually return to the place where I belonged. I remained by your side, weak as I was, through the interminable rain, hoping that my presence would at least soothe you. And, as time passed, I looked over our child’s life in my own unseemly worries.”

THE STORY SO FAR:
The world has ended, but five (well, four and a half) humans get a chance to do it over, and make things right. Only problem is, for their second go around, they're not going to be 'human'...

Inaba Akyuu is finally at the end of a long, long stressful day. By some miracle, the possibility of a double incident disaster was narrowly avoided, if only because the linchpin of Gensokyo in it's entirety was nearly pulled. Remilia Scarlet brought the Hakurei on to death's shore, and it was only the efforts of Akyuu that staved Komachi from claiming her soul.

In the process, she awoke to a crystalline form, one that seemed to awaken the memories of all her reincarnations. With this, she was able to play chess with death itself, and win handily. Though, even with all of her lifetime's full memories, what exact power she used to activate it is still unknown to her.

Still, the day's true tribulations seem to be at an end, and everyone's eyes are turning towards the past and future, rather than the hectic present. One example of this is Hakurei Haru, who has come up with a plan to find her lost daughter, and another is Yagokoro Eirin, reminiscing on the flower she used to give Reisen the name 'Udongein'... and asking Akyuu about her own preference in flowers.

At the stroke of midnight, Thread 8 has appeared! You all wanted the easily-spooked spooky girl, and now it's time to choose her fate!

>>207370

With the end of the arc comes the end of Kyouko's shift as the GMpost mascot, and as a result, I wanted to send her off with a very particular recommendation. Echoes in Front of the the Temple is a silent 4koma made by Rakugaki-Biyori, starring none other than the yamabiko herself. Because it's silent, anyone can read and enjoy it! It's just under six hundred 4komas in the main thread now, and there's plenty of side-stories to tell as well!

You can find the pixiv here: https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/27855794

See you all in Arc 3!

#1 - A Pair of Panties with the Size Marked Out in Sharpie

The lair of a youkai is one of their most guarded domains. As creatures who roam the fringes of mankind's understanding, it is vital that their domiciles provide them adequate enough respite, for lurking in the depths of the unknown can grow quite tiresome for even the most incomprehensible of beings. Dreadfully, it would appear as though the lair of this youkai's domain was neglected.

This wouldn't be entirely unexpected here. For this youkai spent most of the year in slumber. What times she was forced awake outside of her season, she would be groggy and grumpy, and not too well-kempt. Still, from the panties and dirty clothes tossed on the floor, the dirty dishes unwashed in the sink, and the avalanche of newspapers shoved through her door's mail-hole, things could have been better.

The snoring that rumbled through the bedroom of this lair came to a gentle end, and a stirring came from the bed. With drool on the side of her mouth and the blankets tossed aside, the sloppy youkai raised from her bed, sitting upright. She ungraciously scratched her behind and looked up at the clock. A fancy import she had to do a nasty favor for the kappa to obtain, the LCD screen showed the time and date. 13:43. December 1st. So began her time of year.

After a minute or so to further gather herself, she stretched her legs over the side of the bed. After a further minute, she stood up and began to head to the bathroom. It was the job of the embodiment of winter in Gensokyo to look right and proper for the position. And Letty Whiterock, sole yuki-onna of Gensokyo (and mayhaps the world), would need to look the most right and most proper. One quick shower later, Letty took the time to examine herself. Her legs... A bit thicker than last year and... Well nothing a quick shave couldn't fix. Her breasts... Large ones were always popular, she needn't worry there. Though below those, perhaps the most embarrassing area. The youkai gave a sigh of disappointment as she moved closer to the mirror. At least her face remained pretty and unmarred. That was important for a yuki-onna, to look pretty.

Letty paused

So I realized too late I dropped the ball by forgetting to mention that if you're updating your vote to mention what your original post was, I forgot to do that because I was eager to update and wanted to deconfirm a character who was going to be a hard no in the lead early on, while also providing a small smaller clarifications. That's my bad and my mess-up. If you wanna mention which post was yours so I know to only reference the latest vote of yours, please feel free to. To be fair, I'm going to be taking all the votes currently as they are unless someone says to use an updated one instead.

Next update will be soon(tm) as a heads up, so any last minute votes or updates should be soon please!

THE STORY SO FAR:
The world has ended, but five (well, four and a half) humans get a chance to do it over, and make things right. Only problem is, for their second go around, they're not going to be 'human'...

The chronicler-turned-moon rabbit, Inaba Akyuu, is teetering on the edge of disaster. Her act of escape from the moon came with open assistance (and not-so-open trickery) from Sagume, leading her to bring a small item down alongside her and without her knowledge. Eirin panicked upon finding that the item’s purpose was to capture two people and bring them to the moon, and started the Imperishable Night on the same night of the Scarlet Family’s arrival.

Instead of protecting Eientei, this has brought them into conflict with two forces at once. The Shrine Maiden of this time, Hakurei Haru, came to Eientei at her shikigami Aunn’s guidance. The Scarlets, meanwhile, just rampaged around the bamboo forest until they found their prey.

Now Eientei is under siege, and its defenders find themselves drawn into battle with the Scarlet Devil herself. And all the while, the shinigami Komachi Onozuka stalks ever closer to a confrontation where lives are on the line…

New thread over at >>207202! and it's the last thread for Akyuu's arc!

Once again, I'm gonna do a shoutout. I actually missed it last time, so I'll do a double!

Firstly, Songs of a Serpent Flying Eastbound! A very unique story for a 2hu one! You can find it over here: >>204727

And then... I'm actually gonna suggest a fan game! Touhou Lost Branch of Legend is a deckbuilding rougelike that both asutnima and Kosuka have been helping translate, and that got me curious enough to check it out for myself. In practice, it clearly takes elements from both Slay the Spire, and Magic the Gathering (and isn't ashamed to admit either part) but they and the touhou elements blend in shockingly well, to make a really fun experience if you're into the genre. You can find Lost Branch of Legend on Steam!

The chronicler-turned-moon rabbit, Inaba Akyuu, was having a much better first day back on earth than Reimu was having. Even though the village teeters in precarious balance without the Hakurei heiress to enforce it, Akyuu was able to quickly provide evidence to support her story, and start earning the trust of Eientei's residents.

But now, a device secreted along with her during the escape attempt threatens to break that trust apart, and force Eientei into desperate measures on a night Gensokyo would already be pressed to endure. And all the while, the specter of death walks the bamboo forest, seeking the reborn rabbit... and a certain other.

Looks like I was right that Haru would be paying attention to akyuu’s spellcard, thankful it seems to have worked out overall. I had been worried of a worse reaction, but that it turned out to convince them that Akyuu is the Child of Miare works out as long as we can get a chance to talk this out… which isn’t going to be soon.

But there is another bonus, one that I think Komachi is noticing. For the first time in years Haru can see a chance for answers. A hope to find out what happened to, and maybe also just find her child. She has something to fight to see and considering the death clocks has really gotten twitchy, especially since before the fight it had only twitched twice seems to indicate we are on the right track!

I had thought we had more time, but hey, not gonna complain on the update frequency we are getting!

I actually had a couple more ideas for spellcards, one of which the idea behind was to try to ping Aunn in a way to see if she was remember the future somehow by a spellcard with the idea of depicting the plot of Akyuu’s first Agatha chris Q book, with the safe zone being found by knowing the answer to the whodunnit.

Though for future spellcards well one if the Sweet sign falls under lunacy, then I would rename my suggestion in >>206859 from psychic sign “Sweet sister Salutations” to Sweets Sign “Sudden Sister Surprise”

And also another spellcard based on akyuu’s arrival:

{X} Desperate sign “meteoric drop”

A bunny danmaku starts with shooting organized lines of danmaku, until a random line of bullets from the side cross its path before turning red. (the is a second of no bullets present here.) Then the bunny starts shooting wild bursts of panicked shots before it starts rocketing around trailing a plume of scattering danmake behind it as it flies around on a crazy path. Then it finishes off with said rabbit suddenly spiralling to a random bird danmaku at the ground, crashing with a blast of final bullets.

And for the rest of the update… well one, how’d the SDM crew get past the psydar, was Eintei just trying to handle it whi

THE STORY SO FAR:
The world has ended, but five (well, four and a half) humans get a chance to do it over, and make things right. Only problem is, for their second go around, they're not going to be 'human'...

With Reimu's very, very long first day brought to an end at last, our attention heads to the next of the five ex-humans. The one burdened with the most important task of all; bringing memories back to all the others. Akyuu's second (...tenth?) life has been hard work with little progress. Born as a pedigree Lunar Rabbit, the capital's residents have proven skeptical and apathetic of her warnings of the dire future. With no other options, Akyuu resolves to leave the Lunar Capital behind, hoping she'll find more sympathetic ears down on earth.

Her trip down was successful, yet incredibly harrowing due to the efforts of one Kishin Sagume, and landed her right in front of Reisen Udongein Inaba, her sister in this lifetime. Unfortunately, not only did the chronicler take a heavy beating in the process, but an innocent bystander's cart was turned into splinters.. Now, Akyuu has ended up in the care of Eientei, whose doctor and princess were half of those who sent her on this journey to begin with. Her next task is to earn their trust, so she can bring the Lunarian exiles’ resources to bear…

Counting to >>206591:
Note that some addition(s) are paired with their corresponding main choice for obvious reasons.

Main Choice:
[0] Fight.
[2] Run.
[4] Comply.
[1] Agree to return to Eirin, but refuse to be chained up. Point out that "any means necessary" should also include accepting our terms. (A partial comply option, in my opinion)
[15] Time Out (Pause for a moment)
-[15] Tell Tewi and Kaguya that going back is a stupid idea and why.


Potential Additions:
For [x] Run:
[2] (>>206551, >>206559) Take the gun, try to hit Tewi with a memory of something sufficiently terrible, like the experience of death, and cottontail it.
[1] (>>206559) Have Reisen set up illusions to cover us.

For [x] Time Out:
[1] (>>206574) If Tewi isn't going to accept the timeout, then send both possible candidates for the second biometric match (If Eirin was the first one that means Kaguya, if it was Akyuu that was the first then that means Reisen) somewhere else, like say the Hakurei shrine while Akyuu goes with Tewi back to Eientei.
[1] (>>206574) Tell Tewi to try to keep up and get going to Eientei.
[2] (>>206580, >>206591) Explain that once the incident starts it's likely something will happen to the Miko.

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.

Fukurokuju leans on her staff, head turned expectantly for a reply, but all that awaits her is a dismissive wave of your hand.

“Then,” she says slowly and deliberately, “is that all?”

“Indeed. I’ve already taken what I required of you, so you have dutifully served your purpose. Surely, you weren’t expecting us to sit down for tea, talk about the time in-betweens, and hug each other farewell.”

“No… I suppose not. But I also did not expect to be chased away so quickly as you’d a scorned lover. Come now, it’s been over several hundred years. Don’t you think we’ve much to catch up on?”

“Consider me heartless, but no,” you decline. “We do not. What has needed to be said has already been said. And what has not—consider it too insignificant to mention.”

“I suppose that is how you will be, even until the end. I cannot say that I do not understand, but…” The hermit sighs, resting a weary hand on her gnarled wooden staff. “At least bestow upon me a modicum of courtesy and escort me down the stairs personally.”

You oblige. “I suppose I can do that, then.”

The air is still, but the morning light, now shining upon Gensokyo in unashamed glory, has finally reached its residents, though only you, Fukurokuju, and the birds of the morning are aware. It is a rare moment of natural quiet, especially so when the silence you usually induce is coerced. In despite of all this, Fukurokuju walks beside you in brooding.

As she hobbles down the stairs with slow and languid steps, Fukurokuju returns to prior conversation. “Is there no way to convince you otherwise?”

“You know as much as anyone else how obstinate I am. I’ve thought deeply about what I would do for centuries. And, as constant as night itself, I always arrive back at the same conclusion. You’d sooner create world peace than persuade me away from my own thoughts.”

“Then I suppose I’d better start soon on my campaign for world peace,” she says, breathing a tired sigh. “Mind giving me a generous deadline? Say, ten thousand years or so?”

“I’m a busy god.”

“I wish you’d just humor

THE STORY SO FAR

The world has ended, but five (well, four and a half) humans get a chance to do it over, and make things right. Only problem is, for their second go around, they're not going to be 'human'...

Reimu has survived her rather harrowing first day since regaining her memories, managing to regather a semblance of her former self’s equipment and abilities. Having joined forces with Konpaku Youki, and with assistance from the Sculptor Goddess herself, Reimu managed to defeat Toutetsu Yuuma while preserving her most important secret; that she was Kicchou Yachie’s secret daughter.

In doing so, she briefly awoke a strange, in-between form of her past and seemingly future selves. Doing so taxed her body greatly, and now she is in recuperation under her mother’s loving care, while Yachie seeks a safe place to take Reimu in.

With Reimu's very, very long first day brought to an end at last, our attention heads to the next of the five ex-humans. The one burdened with the most important task of all; bringing memories back to all the others…

“Things I would change, if I could go back in time? Well, there are a few things I’ve done that I regret.” Akyuu raised an eyebrow at that. “Oh, don’t look so surprised. Morality is only one part of a good decision, after all.”

“Still, Lady Eiki…” The chronicler took a sip of her tea. “You always give off such a composed air. I can’t imagine you making many big mistakes since… at least the start of the Edo Period.”

Shiki Eiki gave a thin, weak smile. “Well… the most recent mistake I truly regret was nowhere near

Counting to >>206291:
Main Choice:
[21] Full, complete honesty, no matter what she asks. Better to be seen as delusionally sincere than deceptive and sane, and maybe her crystal-clear recollection could help reinforce her knowledge.
[1] Talk about the incoming future, but hold off on details for now. She might be able to tightrope-walk the gap between sincerity and insanity.
[0] Just claim to be a deserter rabbit with eidetic memory. No need to bring up all the crazy shit on one's first meeting.

Potential Additions:
Note that the following additions have been grouped based on similarities:
There's a lot of additions to keep track of... Pure suffering.
a)
[4; >>206267, >>206276, >>206281, >>206290] Thank your saviors. Politeness works wonders.
b)
[5; >>206267, >>206276, >>206281, >>206290, >>206291] Ask if her stash of lunar dango is intact (or has been gobbled up by the rest of Eientei's cast)
[1, >>206274] Also maybe ask for some dango when Eirin goes out.
c)
[2; >>206267, >>206281] Whisper a mental apology to Sagume to yourself, seeing you are about to agree to dragging her name through the mud.

I've been thinking (dangerous, I know). Maybe we can expect Akyuu having to learn the ropes to help Reisen with her work, as payment for her treatment. At least Reisen will have someone to chat with while Akyuu recovers.

Also, as a Mystia fan I hope she eventually gets her cart back. Hopefully with her knees intact.

New thread is up at >>206302!

I've also posted a second epilogue, this one focused on Yuuma in the aftermath, and finally giving the missing matriarch a little bit of screentime. >>/shorts/2804

And to continue the trend of the end-of-thread shoutouts, I'd like to give one to Reavski's The Rabbit Has Not Landed! I've alluded to it a few times, but more than a few of the pieces in Again/Akyuu's lore regarding the moon are based on or direct callbacks to this story. It's actually the one that got me onto this site to begin with, as well!

You can find The Rabbit Has Not Landed here: >>/shrine/43549 and there's an AO3 version as well: https://archiveofourown.org/works/40206600/chapters/100703811

I'd also recommend reading Reavski's Wolfing Down. I personally rate it the most worthwhile-to-experience piece of erotica I've ever read, despite not finding it even slightly erotic - it's just a genuinely fascinating read, combining Futoian script, Reavski's elaborate writing style, and blatant, shameless smut in a glorious combination.

You can find Wolfing Down here: https://archiveofourown.org/works/36154327

See you all in thread 4!

THE STORY SO FAR

The world has ended, but five (well, four and a half) humans get a chance to do it over, and make things right. Only problem is, for their second go around, they're not going to be 'human'...

Kicchou Reimu has reawakened memories of her past life on what has rapidly become the worst day of her current one. The once Shrine Maiden, now turtle-dragon and yakuza princess, is a close-kept secret of the Kiketsu family. However, her and her Mama Yachie were in a part of Kiketsu territory that got cut off from the main body, and now more than ever, the Kiketsu’s enemies seek to discover Yachie’s most precious secret, and exploit it for their own ends.

Yuuma Toutetsu easily saw through Yachie’s initial plan - after all, she has been feeding on the otter spirits that make up Kiketsu herself. After a rough ride across enemy territory, and managing to avoid being spotted by the Gouyoku Alliance only by a hair, Reimu has been chased into the depths of the waterways, in an attempt to stay hidden from the eagles and their taotie leader.

Reimu’s escape brought her into contact with Konpaku Youki, who seeks to slit Yuuma’s belly at Eiki’s request, and find the lost heiress of the Konpaku family. They’ve now come to the nearest reservoir, held by Haniyasushin Keiki, only for the Sculptor Goddess to claim that Reimu’s secret is no secret to her…

[7] Take Hakurouken. It was very possible they would find Youmu first.
[9] Leave it with him. He should hand it over himself.

{17} Explain why the incident happened, from her eyes.
{0} Don’t talk about the… crazy time travel stuff. He trusted her now, no need to push her luck before they found Akyuu.
- {X} Make sure to drop Youmu's name in case he finds her.

After much thought, Reimu pushed the sword back to him. “...Gramps, keep it with you. I will be looking for them, but…” She looked him in the eyes. “You should hand it to Youmu yourself.”

Youki blinked, his eyes shrinking to pinpricks as he looked over at Reimu. “...Youmu?” His voice was hoarse, weak with shock. “That was what my daughter wanted to… how…?”

Reimu rolled the yin-yang orb in the palm of her hand. “...It’s a long, long story, but… we’re the Immaterial Children for a reason. We had to be them.” She looked up. “...We changed history, and overwrote ourselves.”

She began to talk, going through what she remembered. Of the earnest, but scatterbrained half-ghost gardener. Of the past, of the apocalypse, of what they had to do just for a hope of preventing it. He listened, quietly, not saying a single word.

“...I only remembered all of this this morning. Probably because of the yin-yang orbs.” Reimu concluded, rubbing her head. “And… I don’t know where the other children are. All I know for certain is what I am. I don’t even know if they’re all okay… but I have to hope they are.”

Youki said nothing, for a long, long time. He turned his eyes up to the sky, deep in thought. Reimu sat by, and waited for him to put his thoughts together.

“...It’s quite a story, lass. One that beggars belief, frankly.” The old man kept examining the ceiling. “But… A girl named Youmu, eh? Well… that would line up with what my daughter wanted to call her.”

Reimu nodded. “...I’m glad about that. And… if she’s like me, then she’s kept some details from her past life in her. Maybe her hair, maybe her name…”
