Suddenly the answer becomes clear, you’re sitting on it. Standing up
quickly, you jam the legs of the legs of the bench into the bars. You
lean back on the bench, and watch in awe as the door rises up, and then
falls off its hinges. The water muffles the sound as the door falls
down to the ground, resulting in a large splash. You slosh out of the cell, the water up to mid calf, cheering
your small victory to yourself silently. Taking stock of your current
situation, you have two choices, you can either attempt to go through
the person on the other side of the door, or you could attempt to find
the other two cells. The voice on the other side of the door begins pounding while
shouting, and is quickly joined by several other smaller poundings.
Interspersed with what sounds like loud booms. Above, the scuffle seems
to be dying down.
Ignoring the dungeon entrance, you run over to the other wall, and
begin running your hands over it, hoping to find another loose brick or
maybe some hidden latch. Your hand passes over a rough spot on the
wall. Upon closer examination, it seems to be a small hole, just the
right size for a key to fit in. You jam the key in the hole and twist.
There’s a loud clunk, followed by a grinding noise. The wall in front
of you starts to slide open as the water rushes in. You slide in as
quickly as you can, grabbing the key out of the wall. Removing the key
seems to make the door start to close. The voice on the other side of the dungeon door is joined by
another one. Just as the wall slides shut, you hear the door being
blasted open. There’s a pair of sloshing sounds as the pair of people
rush into the room. The voices first sound surprised, then angry. You hear sloshing noises as the pair apparently turn and leave.
The section of the dungeon that you now find yourself in is even
more poorly lit than the first half, but it at least seems to be more
dry. You’ve managed to avoid your captors for the moment, but you don’t
know how long you’ll be able to continue to do so. Looking around the
room, it looks quite similar to the previous room, just with out a
door. You assume that the other wall must open in a similar way to the
first room, and search the wall. However, you fail to find a keyhole,
press mechanism, loose rock, or any other manner to open the far wall.
Going back to the wall you came through, you fail to find a keyhole. It
seems that, at least at current, you’re trapped in the middle room.
Walking into the cell, you search the back wall, looking for a
loose rock on the other side. You find it in almost the exact same
place as it was on the other side. Pulling it out, the wall in front of
you slides up into the ceiling. You fall backwards in shock. Calming
yourself, you’re greeted by a solid steel door. There is no handle on
the door, and there’s no window. You have a feeling that this door,
much like the door into the dungeon, is most likely impossibly solid,
and impossible to knock down. Running your hand over the door, it seems
to be impossibly smooth, and cool to the touch. Above you somewhere there seems to be a fight starting up, as you can hear several people yelling.
You run your hand along the frame of the door and suddenly, a
keypad appears on the door. Remembering the note, you type in
‘s-h-I-t-s-u-x’ which, you hope, is the password to this door. The keypad turns red before disappearing. The torches in the room
all suddenly go out, plunging you into complete darkness. A slight
wooshing sound comes from in front of you.
[ ] Panic.
[ ] Feel around in the darkness.
[ ] Stride boldly through the door.
[ ] Scream.
You stride boldly through the door, which slides shut
behind you. You seem to be in a long hallway, the floor below you
clanking as you walk. You seem to be on some sort of… Catwalk? Looking
around you see nothing but darkness, ahead of you, you see a slight
glimmer of light. Heading towards it, you come across another door,
with a window. Looking inside you see a flickering light, and a figure
sitting in there. The catwalk continues off around this object, which
seems to be some sort of sphere.
[ ] Knock on door.
[ ] attempt to open door.
[ ] walk around to the right.
[ ] walk around to the left.
I'm a bit disappointed we didn't get to argue over whether to stick
the key in the hole, or stick our finger in the hole, or examine the
wall, or try to go back, or look for something to knock the door down
I don't think we have to be TOO cautious here. This is clearly exactly what Kaguya had intended for us by giving us that note.
Still would like to know just how the fuck she would have had this
level of foresight, but for all we knew a lot could have happened in
the times we were either unconscious or being entertained by Mr.
Banana's crazy jokes.
Either way, we giving that girl the most erotic hair-ruffling she's
ever received in her immortal, undying life when this is all over. She
deserves at least that much.
>>12131 A rocket ship? ...a Lunarian vessel with flight capacity is
certainly what we need to get us out of here and buy us some time.
Though, if we're lucky, these passages will put us far enough away that
we'll still be okay.
You knock on the door quite loudly. The figure puts it’s hand up waving
at you in a gesture you can’t quite identify. They turn away from their
device and walk back to the door, fiddling with it for a minute. You
hear the sound of several metal things sliding against each other, and
then the door opens. “Took you long enough. Were the tips not direct enough for you?”
You take a step back in shock! This girl who’s standing here before
you, The long black hair, the kimono, she was the corpse that was lying
in the middle of the first room that Alice had dragged you into.
You stammer out a questioning of how she’s alive.
“Look, You don’t live as long as I have with out picking up at least Some tricks.” Kaguya giggles slightly.
“Now hurry up, and get in here. You’re late as it is.”
[ ] Go inside
[ ] continue asking questions
[ ] . . .
[ ] Run away.
>>12206 The NEET and us are now allies against a common foe. We must band
together to strike down the enemy, and afterwards we shall retire to
her bed-chambers for rufflings, sexings, and posting on the internets.
You step into the sphere behind Kaguya. The door slams shut behind you, and apparently locks again.
“Good. Now that you’re here, I can fire this thing up.” Kaguya runs
her hands over what appears to be a keyboard in front of her, and a
myriad of screens spring to life in across the top half of the sphere.
The screens show the interior of the mansion from every conceivable
Your eyes go wide. Kaguya reaches over to a microphone and speaks clearly into it.
“Eirin. Plan Tasukette. GO.”
You see Eirin on one screen look up into the monitor and nod.
Reimu, Marisa, and Alice are gathered together in the room where
‘Kaguya’s’ body had been. Reimu was looking like she was feeling
better, and Alice was nursing a bloody nose. Marisa and Reimu seemed to
be arguing Vehemently. On another screen, You see a small girl with red
hair and horns coming out of her head running down a hall. You try to
follow Eirin but she seems to have disappeared from the monitors.
Suddenly, a voice comes from your side.
“Everyone but the hostiles have been evacuated from the interrior of the mansion, mistress.”
Kaguya’s face lit up with a devilish grin. “Good job Eirin. Now it’s time to play some games.”
Kaguya waves her hands over the keyboard again and the design
changes into what looks like a yolk for a plane. you wonder if this
sphere is gonna fly out of here or something. Your question is answered
quickly when the sphere announces in a computerized voice. “AUTO CANNON
This voice must have been repeated through the mansion, as the
three girls stop arguing, and start looking around. Suddenly several
bullets shoot between the arguing pair and Alice. The three scatter.
Marisa grabs her broom, Reimu suddenly has a hand full of needles, and
Alice is quickly calling a myriad of dolls forth. The battle is intense and rages for quite some time, but in the
face of the superior firepower of Eientei, the three are driven back to
the entrance. Reimu shakes her fist at the mansion. “God damn it Kaguya, this
means war. I’ll find a way to make you die when I kill you.” a few more
shots zoom past Reimu, “But I’m going to torture you first. Make you
feel all the pain and humilation that I’ve felt.” And with that, the
three of them take off into the air, fleeing away from Eientei.
Kaguya sighs and slumps down in her seat. “That was something I
never hoped that I’d have to do.” She shakes her head and brushes her
hair out of her eyes. Turning around to face you, she smiles a warm
smile at you. “I hope you appreciate what I’ve done for you. I’ve just
pissed off the single most powerful being in Gensoko. I expect a return
on my investment.” Kaguya then turns to Eirin, “Gather up all the
rabbits and cut Reisen down, I’ll be up with our investment soon
Several hours later.
You and Kaguya walk up from the sphere, only once Suika had been
successfully lead out into the bamboo forest and left quite lost. The two of you are talking quite animatedly, debating which anime
of the new season was the best. Yeah, the best way to diffuse a
stressful situation is to relax and ignore it in as much as you can. As
you walk into the room, you hear a familiar voice.
“OH WOW. LOOK AT ALL THE RABBITS! THEY’RE EVERYWHERE!”
You know that voice.
“Ah! It’s the human!” Wriggle cries out.
It’s Cirno, Rumia and Wriggle!
The three of them charge forward and tackle you. Kaguya walks over
to Eirin, pokes her in the side and points at the three girls on top of
you. Reisin, on a set of crutches looks over, and Tewi looks quite
proud. They all laugh at how happy the three little ones are to see “the human”.
[ ] Limit break.
[ ] Hug your little sisters.
[ ] Tell the little ones how glad you are to see them.
[ ] All of the above, like the fist of the motherfucking north star.

Reimu is not done for. She said she will be back, last time she came
with Alice and Marisa, this time shes going to bring the true powerful
beings. Smells like SDM attack. Well we are safe for now, but pretty much screwed
>>12254 And who else is left that we can rally to our cause. Reimu has to
have pissed people off, and now is the time to act, when there is
justification to containing the Counter-Guardian of Gensokyo.
This event has shown Gensokyo just how much Reimu and the rest have
changed, and just how far they will go to archive what they want. Lines
will be drawn between those who would bow down to her power and those
who would resist it. Eientei is the Fort Sumter of Gensokyo. The Great
Civil War of Gensokyo has begun.
>>12266 I think present circumstances will go a long way towards overriding
us accidentally having stepped on a frog. Plus, even on a good day,
Moriya and Hakurei aren't exactly on the best of terms. This is a
course of action definitely worth considering.
SDM IS NOT A PLAYER AT THIS POINT YET. YOU ONLY THINK THIS BECAUSE ALICE MENTIONED PATCHOULI.
Seriously, folks. If SDM were backing Reimu, you would have heard Sakuya's name dropped.
She's a far more deadly person, and a hell of a lot more likely to venture outside than Patchy, who is asthmatic and anemic.
You hug the girls tightly to you. You can’t BELIEVE how
much you missed them. After squeezing them tightly a strange sensation
comes over you. Your eyes loose focus for a moment, and words flow
through your head in a seeming unending stream. When your eyes focus,
you understand. You focus for a moment, then simultaneously, ruffle all
3 girls hair, at the same time. Cirno closes her eyes and smiles. Rumia
still seems somewhat shocked by you touching her, but allows you to
ruffle smiling as well. Wriggle turns bright red again, but smiles. She
fidgets with her hands again, seemingly unused to this activity.
Kaguya walks up next to you and coughs in a manner that says, ‘yes
you’re happy to see them but we have other matters to which we must
The four of you stand up, and turn to face Kaguya.
“Alright, my little investment, You can’t stay here. Reimu will
most likely be looking for you, and this will be the first place that
she’ll come. So you can’t stay here. You’ll need to go somewhere else.
She’ll most likely go to the Scarlet Devil Mansion first in order to
recruit assistance, given that Marisa could easily persuade Patchouli,
and from there the rest of them could be forcibly convinced by Reimu.
I’m going to suggest that you flee to the Moryia shrine, or
Hakugyokurou to hide for the time being. I’d recommend Hakuguokurou for
you to go hide at, given that Yukari is obviously on your side.” Kaguya
glances up at some unperceivable thing before turning back to you. “I
don’t know enough about the Moryia shrine to honestly suggest it, But
given that they seem to be a wild card in all this, much like you, It
may be worth the trip. Given the time you have though, I don’t think
you’ll be able to go to both and make it to the other.”
Kaguya sighs, obviously not used to talking this much. She waves to Eirin, and sits down.
Eirin turns to Reisen and Tewi, “Alright, and the two of you are going with them.”
Reisen opens her mouth to protest but is cut off by Eirin, “No
buts. You’re going with him. There’s no way you can stay here with
Reimu on her way back in your condition. You need to get away from
here, and recover. Besides. He,” gesturing in your direction, “Needs
all the help he can get.” Eirin kneels down next to Tewi. “I need you
to go with him too.”
Tewi humps and turns up her nose. “I swore to him that I’d be
back, and while I did find these three and keep them safe, I didn’t
make it back in time to save him. So I still owe him. Of course I’m
going to go with him.” Eirin smiles and pats Tewi’s head. Tewi turns
bright red at this and slaps at Eirin’s hands. “Keep your hands off me woman!”
Eirin chuckles to herself.
Kaguya, who’s voice seems to have recovered pipes up. “Alright, Where are you going to go?”
[ ] Moriya Shrine
[ ] Hakugyokurou
[ ] Ask what she and Eirin are going to do.
[ ] Find somewhere else to go.
>>12283 True, but Patchy's in tight with Remi, and when Remi says frog, SDM
jumps. Maybe they're not moving now, but it's not an unfair assumption
that they will soon, and it's a damn certainty they won't be coming
down on our side either way.
[X] Ask what she and Eirin are going to do.
Anon keeps his promises. Also, if we go to Hakugyokurou, we NEED to warn the group about the food of the underworld.
I'm also worried about NEET and Nurse, what are they going to do?
>>12288 [ ] Hakugyokurou
Taking Reisen's injury into consideration, which needs time in a
safe location to heal, Yukari's ability to gap us anywhere instantly
(Including the Moriya shrine for later), and their current like for us,
I'd say this option.
However, I am a bit worried that no matter what we choose, Moriya
is in trouble. I'm not worried about being able to be at both places at
once; if we make it to Hakugyokurou, we can just gap to Moriya; I'm
worried that we'll not make it before they are crushed into submission
by Reimu. We'll be able to make a much better evacuation with Yukari,
We've already established that Yukari and Yuyuko are basically in our
corner (for now), so theirs is the best place to seek refuge at first.
A trip to Moriya Shrine would involve going through Tengu
territory, and the possibility of a confrontation with Aya about her
That, and Suwako probably still doesn't like us or Cirno. Of
course, what she thinks doesn't matter if we can get Kanako on our
For now, the best course seems to be to hide out at Hakugyokurou,
set up a base of operations there, and see about the possibility of
getting in touch with the Moriya Shrine from there.
The more Final and EX-Stage bosses we can get on our side, the better.
>After squeezing them tightly a strange
sensation comes over you. Your eyes loose focus for a moment, and words
flow through your head in a seeming unending stream. When your eyes
focus, you understand.
Also, if it's safe, we need to go to kourindou. As we've
seen, Anon is a wild card in battle, sometimes besting even Reimu and
sometimes getting fucked up by dolls. We need weapons or at least the
>>12315 You are wrong, if we have already Yuyuko and Yukari as allies we
need to seek out more allies, and we all know that the Moriya shrine is
in fighting for faith with Reimu. we need to do that in secret so that
its our trump card
>>12299 It looks like asking the Mooninites about their plans has won for
now, so let's take this time to hammer out exactly where it is we're
going to go from here.
Hakugyokurou is already somewhat on our side, although Yuyuko has
proven she can be... um, flighty. Another plus is that it's probably
the least accessible of the two choices. And we did promise.
Moriya may or may not join. They don't like Hakurei Shrine anyway,
but may not feel any desire to stick their necks out for us. But if
they do join, well, not one but two goddesses, a shrine maiden almost
on par with Reimu herself, the fastest being in Gensokyo and her army
of tengu... that'd be a hell of a powerhouse for the good guys.
We can only make it to one or the other, Anon. Choose wisely.
Yukari isn't at Hakugyokurou. She may show up eventually,
but she's really quite busy attending to a variety of matters. (eg. ran
and chen are working thier ASSES off) She's not forgetting about you,
and I think someone else already noticed that fact.
Instead of answering Kaguya’s question, you ask one of your own.
She smiles slyly at you. “That’s really none of your concern. But
if you must know, Eirin and I will be preparing a little. . . surprise
Eirin chimes in, “Oh yes, I almost forgot. I do believe this is yours.”
Eirin hands over the camera. YES! You got the useless piece of
technology that’s only managed to save your butt once back! Huzzah!
Kaguya stretches. “Alright, For real this time, make up your mind.”
[ ] Ask Kaguya where she thinks you should go.
[ ] Ask Eirin where she thinks you should go.
[ ] Ask Reisen where she thinks you should go.
[ ] Moriya Shrine.
[ ] Hakugyokurou.
[ ] Moriya Shrine
Yukari is sort of on our 'side', and Yuyuko's her friend, so we
might have her support already(Especially if she remembers the old time
line). We need more allies, so Moriya just makes sense.
I'm tempted to say [ ] Hakugyokurou.
But I am curious to hear what Eirin and Reisen have to say on the
matter. Eirin's a genius, and since she's stuck with us for now we
should let Reisen have some say in the matter.
I say we go to the Moriyas. Youkai Mountain is a big place...lets
hope we can pick up some unexpected allies. Maybe we can even entrust
some of our troops to the care of the Kappa or Tengu or something.
As much as I'd like to recuperate for a spell, I think it would be
pertinent to recruit new allies. We might be able to win over Aya and
thus get some sway in Tengu society if we encounter her, especially if
we show her that we've (somehow) taken care of her camera until we
could find her again. It would be quite a boon if we could sway the
Moriya family and the rest of the mountain, as well.
It's possible if we head to the Youkai Mountain, we can either earn
Aya's friendship by giving back her camera, or possibly even learning
how to properly use it ourselves. She'd make a powerful ally on her
own, but if we could also get the other Tengu to help as well, we would
have some serious power backing us.
The Moriya Shrine, however, is risky. One of the three there
already don't like us, and without a VERY strong argument for just why
it would be worthwhile for them to align themselves with us, I can't
imagine Kanako would give the go-ahead to pick sides.
Of course, Kaguya sees some benefit in helping us, even if we don't know what it is, yet...
(And you had better believe we're going to make sure she gets a return on her "investment", if you know what I mean.)
I would like to point out that Aya is around Moriya Shrine, and that
Alice knows we had her camera. So they may go try to recruit her to
"fight the thief who stole her camera." If we go to the shrine we could
find her and return the camera before she is recruited, or at least
find out how it works. There is a chance we might run into one of our
new enemies while we are there though.
I'd like to go to the Moriya shrine, but we (meaning Cirno, and there's
no way we're leaving her behind) haven't exactly have the best of
relationships with a certain deity over there, so let's ask the NEET,
>>12398 If at all possible, we should drop off some of the injured--and
Cirno--with friendlies that we make at Youkai Mountain. Hopefully
they'll have a safehaven Reimu doesn't know about, and Youkai
Mountain's a big enough place that she won't be able to search it for
...now I have to ponder how to persuade the Tengu, Kappa, and Moriyas to help us....
>>12400 A chance for revenge, against a heretic against their faith and a
chance to increase their influence. They aren't the Cult of the
Emperor; they don't exactly have a large following like the Hakurei
shrine around here.
Tengu ought to be easier than you'd think. We might be able to
swing Aya by returning camera, or even just showing her that we've
taken care of it. On top of that, if she sides with us, she's got a
great angle on the biggest scoop, from a previously unseen perspective.
Since she's high-ranking in the PR department, I'm sure she can help
swing the other Tengu.
>>12404 I like this. Moriya Shrine relies on Youkai worshippers, right?
What else would boost their worship if not some major payback against
the oppressive, youkai-hating Hakurei Shrine Maiden? Tell them that
they don't need to help us out explicitly yet (they could even pretend
to be our enemy and strike from within)...but that Reimu is weakened
and things could payoff big if they help us when it's crunch time.
Reimu has beaten them at danmaku. They're still gods and the only
thing that truly affects them is the faith of their followers. Their
spiritual cachet is very high in youkai mountain among the wild youkai
and the civilized tengu and kappa, and they seek to expand their
worshipper-base to the human village.
Essentially, we would have to convince Moriya they can get both
more youkai and human followers by supporting us. Hell, Cirno might be
able to get them fairy followers.
>>12421 We had the LHC plans at one point.
I don't know if we stole them, or if they we rightfully ours, but
the fact that we had them probably means we were going to do something
with them, before we got gap'd.
Kanako wants followers
The youkai are the majority in Gensokyo
Therefore, if we want to get Kanako to like us, we need to not only promise her more followers, but be able to deliver.
Considering we already have a couple of youkai who can attest that
we are not only on their side, but even protected them against that
big, mean Hakurei shrine maiden, we should be able to rally a good deal
of support from the youkai in due course.
Naturally, as the Shrine that we claim support for, and are
supported by, the youkai should be all-too happy to join up with the
OTHER shrine in Gensokyo, and Kanako will find herself with more
followers than she could hope for.
Nothing rallies the masses together like a good, old-fashioned bloody revolution.
>>12414 I like this. The tengu--if I'm not mistaken--and most of Youkai
Mountain are aligned with the Moriyas. Reimu, while not opposed to
strong-arming youkai to get her way, may not be willing to go up
against those odds.
If, say, the tengu just took care of some of squad and hid them
away, Reimu may not want to face the Moriyas and all of tengu society
to get to them. Aya just has to help us out a little bit, and she gets
an exclusive with one of the largest stories in Gensokyo...us.
Some of the other tengu might not like being used this way, but if
they dislike Reimu enough, and if Aya has enough clout, they could make
a good safehaven.
You deliberate on the options for a while, before telling Kaguya that
you’re going to attempt to head for the Moryia Shrine. She nods, and
waves at some of the nearby rabbits, who run off.
“We’ll make sure that you’re well provisioned for the journey. If
we could, we’d offer you transport, but it would seem that most of our
transport is currently damaged or otherwise unavailable. Ah, It’s
almost time. I should be heading back.” With that Kaguya turns and
walks off, leaving you, Eirin, and the rest of the girls alone. The
door to Eientei, which was already hanging by a loose thread is
suddenly knocked to the ground by the appearance of a girl with long
white hair, hands jammed in her pockets. “Ahm heeah laikh yeh ahsk’d, sah, wheh’s these fholks yeh need meh ta gaide?” You can barely understand a word Mokou says.
Eirin waves her hand in the general direction of the group of 6. “All of them, if you don’t mind.”
Mokou sighs, “Ah dun whant ts do this bhat, wif Raahmoo lahk this. . .”
You REALLY can’t understand a single word she says, but Eirin and
just about everyone else seem to be able to understand her perfectly,
so you say nothing.
Eirin and Mokou talk for a few more minutes before Mokou turns to
your little group. She points at you and says, “Ah needs yah tah carry
tha injuad miss thare.”
You look blankly back at you before Wriggle nudges you and says “She wants you to carry Reisen.”
You look over at Reisen, her cheeks are slightly red. “It’s alright, I’d just slow you down otherwise, so I’m ok with that.”
You kneel down and Reisen hobbles over to you. She wraps her arms
around your neck, and sits in your cupped hands. Wriggle takes the
crutches and holds on to them. The sight is slightly comic, as the
crutches are taller than Wriggle. You stand up, taking care not to hit
Reisen’s injured leg while you stand up. She’s surprisingly light. The
rabbits return and offer backpacks filled with stuff to Rumia and Tewi.
“Ahl raht, yah ahl readah ta go?”
The group seems quite ready to go.
“Ahl raht than, Lehts gah.”
And with that, your group of seven walks out the doors of Eientei, for what may be the last time.
>>12447 >Mokou sighs, “Ah dun whant ts do this bhat, wif Raahmoo lahk this. . .”
Hmm! More confirmation that Reimu's crazy violent behavior is unnatural. I suppose Marisa's affected too....and maybe Alice.
Reimu is definitely acting oddly, and I'd say Marisa is too; as
much of an ass as Marisa can be, vicious backhands the moment someone
helpless claims ignorance on something, followed by a general agreement
to torture them, isn't really normal for her.
Alice really is just cold, though, going by the games. Although she
was roughed up when we saw her on the monitor at Eientei; I get the
feeling that our nasty little question about her mother, combined with
Reimu and Marisa's odd behavoir and willingness to resort to torture,
may have been enough to make her find their scheme distasteful. She's
cold, but even she has some sympathy for humans.
>>12491 She did? Man, I can't remember, and now that I've switched
computers I can't even replay it, since that one got taken down from
the al|together site after the creator something something I dunno.
I can't even find any pictures of the game, other than this.
So, does anyone have any clue where the hell any of this is going?
I mean, it all started out fairly silly and innocuous. We tried to beat up a lake, for crying out loud.
Then the hallucinations and mind-fuckery began.
And now, well, we've got the main heroines of the games gone
batshit loco and we're now looking to start a full-scale revolution.
I mean, why was Yukari yanking us around like that? Why is Reimu
more of a bitch than usual? What the hell are we doing that's getting
everyone so worked up? Why do we have bouts of schizophrenic delusions
and hallucinations any time we get hungry? And why the fuck is Mokou
talking like that?
I mean, seriously now. Is this really where all of this is going?
Are we seriously going to be Anon of the Rebellion, and send all of
Gensokyo's youkai off into an epic battle to get the sand out of
Reimu's vagina? Or are we getting set up to have this all turn out that
this is all a dream, that the school life scenario is the "real" story,
and everything that has happened to us is the result of a coma dream
brought on due to severe brain trauma from Mokou beating the shit out
>>12505 'Where is this going?' It's probably heading for a confrontation
with Reimu, and/or whatever's causing her to be batshit loco. Our main
goal will probably be to remove whatever the heck is causing her
craziness, and/or the neutralization of Reimu. Kira mentioned Yukari
was busy and not at Hakugyokurou...so she probably has her hands full
setting things up to deal with Reimu, her craziness, and whatever might
be causing that.
...what I want to know is what the heck Anon is. With his unusual powers, I keep getting Witsuarunemitea vibes from him.
>>12505 >the school life scenario is the "real"
story, and everything that has happened to us is the result of a coma
dream brought on due to severe brain trauma from Mokou beating the shit
out of us
"So...you don't remember how you got here, huh..."
She comes to visit me the next day, too.
I'm secretly glad.
After I'd assured my family that I was alright, they'd stopped visiting as often.
My father still comes about twice a week, sometimes bringing my sisters with him, but most of the time, I am alone.
It's hard, spending so much time by myself in this empty hospital room.
Smiling up at Mokou, I answer her question.
"It's true. I don't remember anything at all."
That isn't exactly true, though.
I still have a few memories from before my accident.
A feeling of falling. Darkness. Happy laughter.
A nurse. Water around my ankles.
Too short, too unclear to be understood.
Are they real memories at all? Or are they just pieces from that strange dream?
For now, though, they're unimportant, and I sweep those thoughts away.
"In fact," I continue, "I don't remember my own name. I mean--I know what my name is, but it doesn't feel as if it's mine..."
Mokou looks down at me curiously. "You remembered my name, though," she said.
I pause. Even in my head, what I'm about to say sounds embarrassing.
"I had a weird dream while I was unconscious. You were in it, or a
person that seemed a lot like you, and that person's name was Mokou.
So, when you came to visit me the first time, I called you Mokou."
It was my mistake. She's not her, of course.
But...she acts like her.
There are a few things different. She's wearing a normal school
uniform instead of those strange clothes and she doesn't have an
accent, but other than that--
Mokou narrows her eyes, but her expression is more contemplative
than angry. "In other words, you don't actually remember anything about
"That's not true. I--"
No, what she's saying is correct.
This Mokou--the real Mokou--probably isn't immortal.
She probably can't use magic, either.
"Huh, I guess you're right."
"In other words," Mokou points out, smirking, "I might not actually
be your friend at all. I could have lied when I told you that, and you
wouldn't ever know the difference."
For some reason, even though she's smiling, she looks a bit nervous while she says this.
I can't blame her. That feeling, that everything you know might be wrong--it's definitely not a pleasant one.
But I shake my head.
"I...I don't think so."
I take a deep breath.
"In my dream...you were...a nice person."
I feel strange. Like something is squeezing my chest.
"In that dream...I really...liked you."
What am I saying?
I can't seem to understand the words coming out of my mouth.
I can hear my heartbeat in my ears.
"So...so, I think the Mokou in real life...is a nice person, too."
I look up at Mokou.
She doesn't meet my eyes.
I feel like I'm going to start shaking.
Why is that?
A minute goes by.
I barely catch the whisper.
"You...stupid idiot. Trusting some dream-version of me like that--that's unbelievably stupid..."
She turns to face me.
The things she's saying are really mean.
But, I don't mind at all.
Because, just like the Mokou from my dream, this Mokou is smiling.
I smile, too.
"Is that so? I guess you might be right..."
"W--well, maybe not, right? After all, it was your own brain
telling you all that stuff, so maybe it's your subconscious telling you
"Heh, maybe you're right, Mokou."
"Of course I'm right."
And, even though the dream is over,
I feel as if the adventure is only beginning.
>>12513 Unfortunately, I'm more concerned about being hunted by a crazed
and violent Reimu who will mercilessly crush anyone who helps us.
Protecting our little troop and payback for what happened at Eientei
takes priority for me.
...it's a damn shame though. I was really looking forward to
re-enacting that delusion scenario with Mokou, but then Gensokyo went
crazy-violent on us.
>>12512 4 or 5 pm EST. Just here for a little bit before work.
>>12516 Who said you wouldn't get the chance?
>>12508 GM is that you?
>>12505 Gensokyo's always been out to kill you. You just avoided most of the worse stuff early on.
>>12523 So Reimu is not insane or acting strange, it is how she is, i see.
So the Gensokyo you thought up is not like Zuns, its mean, evil and
everythings out to kill the other, torture murder and death are on a
daily basis. And Reimu think shes god and has to be the polic and
everyone who does not do what she wants is gonna be killed or worse,
does not matter if human or Youkai.
Well only one thing to do. Crush her and become the new Order
I can see it... all Alicefags in the world can see it...
Reimu finally snaps and goes berserk on Alice elsewhere. We find her
bleeding, treat her, then goes all thet cliche "But I'm your enemy, why
did you save me?"...
Oh, I can see it...
>>12528 I see, so basical being a human in Gensokyo SUCKS.
You cant protect yourself, you cant wander around and you can only be in the village.
So the only way you can survive and walk around is to have some
kind of powers. Makes more sense now, but it still leaves it open why
Reimus acting so agressive, same with Alice and Marisa
>>12532 Maybe we have an uncontrollable ability to spread madness, and it
affects only a few people? Something like the moment we stepped to
gensokyo we unleashed a massive wave of madness, and it affected only a
>>12533 Hmmm, well we are not sure yet if Reimu is normal or gone insane. I really dont know. Maybe its just the way she is.
But it seems Reimu and her goons are way more evil then any Youkai around. Somethings wrong here, they are the good guys!
We should've gone to SDM before Reimu and convince Remilia to our side. But Youkai Mountain is very fine too.
Aside from Moriya Shrine's denizens, good potential allies include:
Reporter Tengu(& Fox-tails)
>>12533 Something I noticed, is that the only two characters who seem to be
acting uncharacteristically evil so far have been about the only two
pure-blooded humans with any power to mention; meanwhile, all of our
allies are youkai (or half-breeds), Lunarian, and now Mokou, whose
humanity is diluted (perhaps not the best word, but I'm tired) by both
the Hourai Elixir and the power of the phoenix. Alice and Patchouli are
playing along with Reimu because they want to find out what the deal is
with us; cold, and definitely not friendly, but not truly batshit.
tl;dr - we make other humans crazy in the coconut. Avoid them. Sadly, for safety's sake, this does include Keine.
>>12535 Go to the SDM? Sounds like a very, very bad idea to me. Alice and
Patchouli were both interested in studying us, and since Alice was
teamed with Reimu and Marisa, this implies that the SDM is not opposed
to goals that coincide with Reimu's. It also implies that at least one
member of the SDM is more inclined to see us as an expendable
experimental specimen rather than a person to ally with or help. All
this are issues that Moriya Shrine does not have (with Suwako being a
Now, there's a possibility that Remi would overrule Patchy. But
does Remilia have enough reason to overrule Patchy? I.E. Can we give
Remi a powerful reason to think there's more to gain from us living,
than from turning us over to Patchy for experimentation? I think not.
Moriya Shrine...there's a slight problem with Suwako, who
apparently cares little for human lives and would feed us to her hat.
But--if we take Cirno out of the equation--Suwako doesn't have any
particular reason to kill us. That means we have a clean slate for
negotiating with the Moriyas.
Points in our favor with the Moriyas?
1. Helping us is detrimental to their rival shrine.
2. If it becomes known that they, for instance, had a hand in a
plan that thwarted/defeated the crazy Hakurei shrine maiden, their
prestige would go up. More prestige = more worshippers for their
shrine. Therefore, they should help us as much as possible--covertly,
if necessary--and back us up with all their firepower if/when we have
to make a final stand against Reimu.
Still...the craziness seems to consist in amplified violent and
aggressive tendencies. If she's crazy, then just have to take care not
to give her ANY reason to go off on us. Maybe she'll go off on Reimu
& Co instead.
Heck, if Sanae's crazy, the Moriya deities might have more reason
to help us out. We just have to persuade them that we, too, want to
stop the madness; therefore, helping us is the same as helping Sanae,
their shrine maiden.
I doubt we are having some weird effect on peoples mental condition.
Marisa was with us in kourin's shop yet she didn't pay any attention to
us but she did notice us to the point she remembered our face when
Alice dragged us to Reimu. Through all that she never once acted
hostile to us directly.
Pft anon getting hit by women is nothing out of the ordinary. As
for the study, hey we're just some guy from the outside world. The only
reason we would have to be in Gensokyo is to be some youkai's dinner.
Cutting us up and learning something is a better use of our body in her
Or the whole testing thing might not involve physical mutilation.
After all they're studying something that has magical properties.
Now that I think about it...why did Reimu say we interrupted her sleep
in the first place? I can't recall causing any trouble or meeting
anyone that would get us reported to the Hakurei shrine maiden. But
Reimu blamed us, and was unusually violent and aggressive from the
...if anyone is the focal point for madness, it seems to be Reimu.
She was the first one that demonstrated abnormal behavior. Marisa only
became unusually hostile after she joined up with Reimu.
It didn't help our meeting with her that we were screaming our
heads off. That's bound to piss anyone who's sleeping soundly off. And
going for the hostile move and trying to use the camera on her as well
as charging her ass sure as fuck eliminated any chance of us ever
getting a chance to talk things out.
Something is totaly off here. Reimu acts like a total berserker, and
kills and tortures everything that has not her opinion. I mean she
couldve just asked us what we were doing. But she attacked us and
fucked up our hand for protecting Wriggle. She was about to kill us, it
was only self defending. Alice is totaly fucked up, she wouldve made a
perfect Torture Master. I dont think she was joking about studying us
and taking our eyes. They are supposed to be the Heros, the good guys, but they act
even worse then the Gestapo. Reimus the fucking Hitler of Gensokyo
Fucking awesome! Wish we had asked Reisen or one of the others were
to go really, but having my beloved moon rabbit perched on my back is
more than good enough. I'll protect you Reisen, don't worry!
Also, redneck retard Moku? BRILLIANT! I dislike her so this makes it all better.
Anyway, here's things in my eyes:
1) Moryia Shrine seems like a bad idea to me, I dunno why but I
think our power may effect Faith rather than just humans. Because
Reimu's power is faith based she can't touch us and because most humans
follow her Shrine they feel some kind of distrust or something of us,
how do we know Moryia Shrine's followers and maiden won't react to us
in the same way? Maybe Anon is destined to introduce Atheism to
2) It's too late now, but I reckon we should've gone to the Forest
of Magic. Seems crazy, no? But it's a safe haven for those who don't
want to be found, we have protection against Youkai and could probably
raise some followers there. But most importantly Alice and Marisa live
there, we could've raided Marisa's home for clues or visited Alice to
try and convince her to defect. Reimu would've never predicted this
kind of move and we could've struck deep into the enemy force.
3) SDM, that enigma. I raised in the previous thread that Remillia
may have her own interest in us, if only because of our value to the
other players in Gensokyo. She seems tactical like that, I am not
certain but I think that Patchy has been asked to "retrieve" us so
Remillia can meet us. This may not mean she will help us, she may talk
to us and decide that she stands to gain more by letting Reimu have us.
Also, to test the whole "we drive humans nuts" theory we'll need to
>>"Shut up. It's your fault that I'm
out here at this time of night. What exactly is it that you think
you're doing. Especially with that." The figure motions to Wriggle.
>>"You're making quite a mess of things here. Really, what do you think you're doing."
>>"SHUT UP ALREADY." the voice screams
at you. Coming closer. "Go ahead. Just give me a reason. You've already
interrupted my sleep tonight, and one less human around her wouldn't
really bother anyone. Just dump that thing on the ground and come along
like a good little boy. We'll get rid of that thing soon enough."
Our first encounter with Red White. Something was already wrong when she went looking for us.
It seems our mere presence in Gensokyo has disturbed at least
Reimu. I'd attribute that to some sort of boarder disruption but Yukari
doesn't seem to think we're an adverse element. I think faith may
suffer under our presence or something.
To be honest I think we're possessed or something.
>>12583 At first i thought too that Reimu has gone insane or something thanks to us, but thats not the case.
Its just how Reimu is. It may be that Kira made her extremly
agressive and bitchy. But Marisa and Alice are the same too. The MiG
world is not so nice like the WUIG or ZUNs. Torture, murdering, human
eating, power struggle between Youkais and the Major Houses, Death at
every Corner for comman Humans. And in the Middle is Reimu, who acts
like the judge and jury of everything and whoever goes against her, is
going to get killed or even worse. Thats how Silent Sinner in Blue
shouldve been! More realistic
Perhaps this is how the Youkai of Gensokyo see the world? While
Reimu lives a life of complacency and casual cruelty, the Youkai live
harsh brutal existences on the edge of civilization.
Reimu represents a corrupt and stagnant form of religious Law,
while the Youkai such as Cirno, Rumia and Wriggle represent innocence,
freedom and the struggle for survival.
Crap this stuff is really open to interpretation!
Eientei is a center of medical advancedment but through methods
frowned upon by others like the Houri Elixir, they threat Reimu's peace
by destablising the balance between human and Youkai by extending
natural life spans.
Moryia Shrine represents an alternative moral authority and
threatens Reimu's peace by weakening her position as the dominant
Hakugyokurou probably doesn't oppose or ally with Reimu very much so I'm not sure what to make of them.
There's more factions to consider, I'd love to here some other interpretations.
But this revelation has made me resolute, our only loyalty lies
with the (9) gang. They are the only innocents in this story as far as
I can tell, they're persecuted on almost every front and treated as
nothing more than animals. We can make as many temporary alliances as
we want, but we don't work FOR them we work WITH them.
>>12595 Following that line, the SDM would be a neighboring totalitarian,
atheistic regime (following a cult of personality) that threatens the
established order simply by being independent and unbowed (also by not
caring for the religious law, though this is hand-in-hand with being
independent). Their territory is limited, and an attempt to expand
their control was thwarted in TH06.
Sanae is technically a demigod. Her divine blood is potent enough
to perform miracles, so it's unlikely she'll be affected more than the
other demihumans we've encountered (Lunarians, Reisen, Mokou). Plus,
she's an outsider, like Anonymous, which may make her immune.
Reimu's power comes from her inherited position as Hakurei shrine
maiden, and the little amount of spiritual power she has developed on
her own (i.e., flying). There's no positive evidence she's not a
>>12600 Eientei are using us for their own purposes, that's why I've sworn
alligence to the (9) sqaud. They may have taken time to warm to us, but
they accept us without asking for anything in return. It's a bond of
love, we love them and they love us. They aren't trying to change the
world and we don't mean to, they don't care that we have mysterious
powers they just care that we treat them much nicer than any other
human they know.
>>12611 But...but you can always get in the "mood", right?
I can actually picture it happening, one of our little sisters
wanting to get a bit "closer" to uss, or then just some other Touhou.
Well, maybe more after all the action and insanity we are going trough
at the moment.
>>12595 Well probably the Youkai are not Human and dont act like them, so
Reimu has to act like them too in order to compete with them in the
Struggle to keep the Order in Gensokyo.
Her means dont matter anymore, as long as it justifies the Order
in a whole. Seems like she would kill any Humand and Youkai regardless
that threaten that Order.
Regardless, we are in a bad Situation now, we only have Cirno,
Rumia, Wriggle, Tewi and Reisen with us. Mokou is no going to help us,
she is just a Guide nothing more. On top of that some are hurt and
beside Tewi and Reisen we have no means defend ourselves. We all know
Reimu is going to hunt us down. Hellbend to kill and torture us. Shes
proabbly going to follow us till the end of the World and will mow down
everyone and anyone who helps or is involved with us. Hiding is out of
Question, that is why it is uselsss to go to Hakugyokurou. We need to
get more forces first, then go there. Make Moriya our trump card so
that Reimu doesnt know it. Its goin to be WAR
>>>12583 >I think faith may suffer under our presence or something.
Youkai also require faith (usually in the form of fear from humans)
to exist, and there has been observable weakening in their powers:
Rumia not being able to darken our campfire, Yukari's decreasing
ability to gap us, Alice's magic strands being cut, Cirno not causing
frostbite on touch. Low-level youkai like the Prismrivers, Rumia, and
Wriggle have been uncharacteristically docile, while high-level youkai
are interested but equivocal (Yukari's occasional benevolence and
regular surveillance, Yuyuko eating us).
At some point we should probably try to find Medicine again to
determine if she had anything to do with the poison that hit Reimu.
She'd probably be a bit more friendly now that we're basically the
enemy of humanity.
Know much 40k fluff? Have you heard of Nulls and Pariahs? Not the necron ones, I hate the goddamn mary sue bots.
Basically all life has a psychic presence which exists on the
immatrium (the warp), the only race not like this are the Tau but I
don't know much more than that.
However there are some humans that are born with no psychic
presence at all, nulls. Demons don't see them because they have no
presence in the warp and pyskers hate them for reasons they don't
understand. Nulls are entirely immune to psychic powers, both good like
healing and bad like lighting bolts.
Powerful nulls are called pariahs and are like psychic black holes,
psychic powers literally get sucked in and negated. A pariah's presence
is painful to a psychic.
Maybe this anon is a Null and the Youkai are like the Tau?
>>12623 Gods require faith, like Kanako and co. I don't remember youkai in general needing it.
>>12635 Oh, so Abnett didn't make up untouchables. I was wondering about that.
Two problems with this I see are: First, youkai having less psychic
presence than humans is just absurd. They're more like demons--things
FROM the warp. Second, really not convinced that Anon is having any
effect like this at all. It might be vaguely related to what's actually
going on, but only just.
Well i'm not suggesting an analogous relation, but there does seem to be a similar effect happening no?
That's where I got the faith idea from, Reimu is directly effected
by whatever we are and the Faithful of her shrine have been weary or
cold towards us. On the other hand atheists like the region's Youkai
and Eientei, though I don't know if they are atheists to be honest,
have been friendly towards us.
We need to find some humans to test various theories on.
Also sub note: Keine should be fine around us as Rinnosuke was, half Youkai seems to be fine.
>>12635 >Powerful nulls are called pariahs
Wrong, pariahs are human nulls who the necrons have gotten hold of and mechanized up.
Tau have a psychic presence, its just weak. Weak enough that
demons don't care about their worship because your average human is
worth 100 times more and theres a trillion times more of them in the
The Youkai are nothing like the Tau, because certain deities, like the Moriya shrine, greatly value their worship.
Reimu's friends are hating on us because Reimu's hating on us, and
that's as simple as it gets. Reimu is being aggressively hostile to the
point of attacking people harboring us, and that gets them involved.
Necrons retconed the Paraiahs, I really hate them and that's why I
ignored them. Paraiahs existed in fluff before the Necrons and you can
even play as a human paraiah sub type in the role playing game of 40k.
The necrons are the biggest mistake in 40k ever.
>>12644 So that seems to put faith out of the equation.
I guess it's to do with the boarder then, what ever we've done has
seriously effected the boarder between gensokyo and the real world.
Yukari doesn't see this as a problem but Reimu does, enough to threaten
the current power balance to get to us.
>>12647 I'm pretty sure Yukari really loves that damn border. I remember
reading that she helped create it, and convinced a lot of youkai that
Gensokyo was a good idea. If we were in any way threating it's
continued existence Yukari would kill us in the blink of an eye.
Guys, Reimu didn't attack us for threatening the border. We've spoken
to her. She hates us now for having been able to hurt her. And she
attacked us originally because we were running around with Wriggle.
There may be other factors driving her crazy, but she doesn't know
about them. Hating us for threatening the border is something she'd
>“Ah. Good. You caught the little shit who did this to me. So tell me, kid, What in the FUCK did you do to me?”
>You tell Reimu that you honestly have no idea what you did to her.
>“SHUT UP YOU LIAR. YOU KNOW WHAT THE FUCK YOU DID TO ME. WHAT KIND OF POISON DID YOU USE?!”
>You’re shocked by the Shrine maiden’s sudden outburst.
She said nothing about the border when we talked to her earlier. If we were fucking it up I think she would have mentioned it.
