Sorry it took so long, I was looking for a picture, and didn't find it. Closest one I have at the moment.
You suddenly find yourself tumbling headlong through the darkness. There seems to be a great many things around you, but you cannot see any of them, only hear them. A constant buzzing like the sound of many people talking. Falling for what seems an eternity. Eventually your descent into darkness slows, and you stop spinning. You feel as if you’ve come to rest in some sort of chair, but the darkness prevents you from checking. The sound of the buzzing dies away, leaving you in a pitch-black silence.

A voice comes out of the darkness.

“Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a land slide,
No escape from reality.”

A spotlight comes down from somewhere above, shining on the person who’s singing, and apparently on a stage. She’s wearing a big floppy hat, and a black dress. Blonde hair cascades down her back in waves. Music picks up, and the person begins singing again.

“Open your eyes, look up to the skies and see,
I’m just a poor boy, I need no sympathy,
Because I’m easy come, easy go, little high, little low,
Any way the wind blows, doesn’t really matter, to me”

Suddenly a strong wind blows up, and you feel yourself falling again. If you see this damn darkness one more time….

You now find yourself on the top of a hill, overlooking a vast field. Below you, two huge armies clash. They push each other back and forth, in the ebb and flow that is war. You vaguely note that this conflict may be about you, but something else has your attention. Something far more pressing. Lifting your gaze from the two armies, you see it. That emmence body of water. The Lake. It is the true evil here, the sleeping dragon of Gensokyo. Everything that is happening, indeed everything that has ever gone wrong, this is where it came from. It’s evil has eminated throughout the world, and cumulated back from whence it came.
Pushing off from the ground, you find yourself airborne. You press forward, as fast as you can. You know you must challenge your foe, and this battle is one that must be faced alone. Touching down on the shores of The Lake, you call it out, the evil being, by it’s ancient and mostly forgotten name. You mentally thank the elder being who told you it’s name. Her help was invaluable in identifying this evil, her knowledge vast and unsurpassed.
The surface of The Lake begins to glow as it rises, it’s ancient slumber disturbed, from it’s bed. The Lake rises rapidly into the air, and you push off the ground, once again, to confront it. The higher The Lake rises, the more intense the glow becomes, the shape of The Lake changing and shrinking. The form that it’s beginning to take is humanoid. The glow climaxes and the light shoots away, revealing the true form of your lake.
You gasp. Nothing that magician had told you prepared you for this. This, this was impossible, this cannot be the true form of The Lake, but deep down, deep inside you, you knew. You had always known, you just had refused to accept this. The form and appearance of The Lake? You saw it every time you looked in the mirror, nay at any reflective surface. The Lake was you.

You jerk awake from the… Dream? It all seemed so real though. You shake your head, trying to clear your clouded mind. Looking around the wagon, You see Reisin is still asleep, leaning against Cirno, who’s also asleep. Cirno’s wrapped in a blanket, more to keep anyone else around her from getting cold than to keep her warm. Reisen is also draped in a blanket. Up front, Mokou is driving the wagon with wriggle sitting next to her. Rumia is sitting in the back of the wagon, happily munching away on a couple of sticks of jerky. Tewi was out of the wagon, running ahead checking to make sure that the way was clear. You stretch your arms above your head. Sleeping in a wagon is never really a good idea, but there’s not really much choice at the moment. You look up at Youkai mountain, looming ever closer.

You turn towards the front of the wagon and address Wriggle. She turns around and smiles at you.
“Good morning sleepy head. We were starting to think you’d never wake up at the rate you’re going.”
You give a noncommittal answer. Looking around, you don’t seem to be in the bamboo forest anymore. You pose the question of your location to Wriggle.
“Oh, while you and Reisen were still asleep, we ran into a passing cabbage merchant. Mokou almost wrecked his wagon, thinking it was someone who might have been attacking, so we gave him quite a scare.”
Wriggle giggles.
Moku pipes in something which causes Wriggle to giggle. “Yeah, that was funny.”
God DAMN it, you CANNOT understand a word that girl says. Wriggle seems to catch onto this and fills you in on what happened.
“Aparently, Kaguya caught Mokou about two to three weeks ago and crushed her head under a large rock. It apparently took her about a week to get the rock off of her head, and it hasn’t quite completely healed at this point.”
Two little ladybugs fly up to wriggle and flit around for a moment before flying off again. “Oh no. Quickly quickly! Hand me the canvas!”
You hand wriggle the canvas and she ties it down, before crawling under it. “Marisa’s flying over the area” she whispers, easing resin into a lying position on the bed of the wagon. “We need to stay down, and not give her any reason to stop and check us out.”

The wagon rolls on for some time like this before the wagon begins to slow.

“Hey, Mokou, Whatcha doing Da~ze?”

You decide it would be prudent to remain silent, and thus, do so. Wriggle scoots in closer to you, obviously frightened at the possibility of being discovered. You put your arm around her and hug her slightly, really with out even thinking about it. She stiffens slightly, then seems to relax.

Mokou tells Marisa what she’s doing.
“Eh? I can’t understand a damn thing you’re saying Da~Ze.”
Mokou talks much slower this time, trying to speak as clearly as possible.
“Bah. Whatever. Who on earth rides a cart out here. Don’t you sell yakitori or something? Why do you even have a cart like this?”
Mokou gives a noncommittal answer.
“AAAAAAAAAHHH! I can’t understand you! It’s really annoying, really. Feh. I think you’re lying da~ze. Suika said that she saw you running around with some people. Now, what’s in the back of the wagon Da~ze?”

Alright, consider the options time.

If we remain silent, we don't instantly give ourselves away, but it might not do a whole lot of good unless Mokou can get rid of Marisa somehow.

Waking Reisen would only really be of any use if we could do it silently, and even then only if she could actually do something. She's in no condition to fight, so unless she can use her powers there's not a whole lot she can do to help.

Wake Cirno: Yeaaaah. Right.
The only reason I could think of TO wake her is to ensure that she remains quiet. If she woke up on her own, chances are she wouldn't have enough sense to remain silent, and would likely give us away.

Peeking out of the canopy? We already know who is out there. We can hear what is being said perfectly. There is, as far as I know, no additional benefit to SEEING Marisa, and even worse, there's the chance she would notice someone peeking out. With Anon's luck, the second we lifted the canopy up, we'd find ourselves looking her right in the eyes.

also, how can marisa think that mokou is lying if she can't even tell what the hell mokou is saying

You think that it might be prudent to wake Reisen now. Touching Wriggles shoulder, you point at Reisen with your head. She seems to understand what you’re going to try and do. Moving as silently as you can around Wriggle, you slide across the bed to Reisin. moving to put your hand over her mouth to keep her quiet when she wakes up, she touches your arm, indicating that she was already awake, just keeping her eyes closed.

“Eh? What was that Da~Ze?”
You hear a hand hit the canopy. Marisa’s hand appears beneath the canopy.

As tricky a situation as we are in, I still don't think we should compromise our position if we can avoid it.

Prepare to jump Marisa: She's stronger than she looks in this story, remember. If she slapped Anon hard enough to floor him, I wouldn't dismiss her physical ability. For all we know, she could instantly change to Cho Marisa in times of danger.

Remain silent: Hope that something will suddenly dissuade Marisa from looking in, or otherwise direct her attention elsewhere. Might not be the best course of action if you need to be ready to react, though.

Ready Camera: Does it make any noise to do so? If so, I would hold back on trying it, as it might unnecessarily give us away. Keep your options open, though.

You remain silent and stare at that hand. It’s so close to pulling back the canopy.
“HEY THERE BLACK WHITE!” That voice! Tewi!
Marisa’s hand whips out from the canopy. “You. What are you doing here you damn little rabbit?”
“I wonder, I wonder. What are you doing here, black white black white?”
“That’s none of your business you silly rabbit Da~ze”
“Oh really now? It looks like you’re harassing innocent people, like usual.” You can HEAR the sneer on Tewi’s face at that one.
“It would look like that to a money grubbing little rabbit who doesn’t know her place Da~Ze.”
“Oh? What’s that black white? Your pads are slipping?”
Marisa sputters with rage.
“Coming over here are you? Or are you gonna use your little charm?”
Marisa’s back is probably turned now, this could be your chance. Make a move?

Jump Marissa: Her back is most likely turned towards us. If we are going to do anything, this might be the most opportune moment. However, there's a chance she could turn back, or go after Tewi. Either way, remember that we haven't had the best of luck at jumping right into things.

Take a picture: We don't even truly know how to use whatever power the camera has yet. At most, we would make a sound, and Marisa would know we were there. Probably not the best choice right now.

Wait and see what happens: The suspense might be killing us, but it might be best to trust in Tewi. She's doing alright keeping her distracted, it appears.

Try to slip out the back of the wagon: Risky, but might be the only way to avoid detection AND engaging in a fight we might not win. Or it could horribly blow up in our face, with us now out and exposed.

Suddenly it occurs to you, you’ve forgotten all about Rumia in this situation. Glancing to the back of the wagon, you see Rumia, leaning back against the back of the wagon, looking like she’s about to cry. Oh shit. You try to move down to her, but before you can reach her, she breaks out wailing.
“Eh?! So you were hiding something Mokou!”
“Shit! HUMAN, RUN!”
A laser blasts over head, just barely missing everyone in the wagon bed before arcing up. Glancing at where Marisa is, You see that Mokou apparently leaped into the laser blast to knock Marisa’s aim off. She apparently lost her arm in the process though.
You jump to your feet, Wriggle rushes back and grabs Rumia, who’s still sobbing. You quickly pull Reisen up to her feet, and sweep her up into your arms. You jump off the bed of the wagon and run off into the nearby woods. Wriggle veers off into the woods, and you quickly loose sight of her. Coming into a clearing, you slow your pace, Reisin seems quite shaken up by your quick departure, and is holding onto your arms quite tightly.

OH. MAI. GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH. CIRNO. How could you forget Cirno! You put Reisen down, and tell her to wait here. As you turn to go back into the woods Reisen interjects.
“Do you even know the way back”
You stop. You don’t. You don’t even have the slightest clue. You were running like mad in a general direction into the woods. You turn to Reisin and begin sputtering something about needing to find Cirno, Tewi, and Mokou. Resin shakes her head, eyes tearing.
“I know you want to go back for them, but we can’t right now. We can’t, you can’t. Can’t you see? Going back there would be suicide. Suicide! We have to escape while we can!” Tears stream down her cheeks.
You yell at her, something about doesn’t she care? Why would she not want to go rescue them.
Reisen sobs quietly before answering in a very quiet voice. “I want to go back for them too, but. . . if we die here and now? It’s all for naught. Everything everyone has done for us. . . It becomes meaningless. I want to go back so badly, BUT WE CAN’T WE CAN’T MAKE EVERYONE’S SACRIFICES BE IN VAIN!” She screams that last part at you, the tears flowing freely.
You’re taken aback by this. You need to decide what to do.

I normally enjoy picking the suicidal options, but now we are in a completely different situation. We've got members of our group to worry about and we can't endanger them anymore.

Cirno, Tewi, and Mokou may be getting attacked right now but they can handle themselves. Rumia and Reisen are currently incapable of fending for themselves. The real GAR option is to stick with your friends and lead them on.

My point is that we shouldn't abandon Cirno. We don't have to rush in like a faggot but I really don't want to leave her. If we can get Wriggle and Rumia back with us we can form a plan.
Maybe we can get Rumia to cover us and get Cirno out of there, or use wriggle to scout the area with bugs?

You take a deep breath, and focus for a moment. What Reisen is saying is reasonable, but really, How would you feel if you left Cirno behind? You may not want anyone to get hurt, but leaving Cirno behind just leaves a bad taste in your mouth. However, if you go running off with out any sort of plan, you’re going to get killed the second you clear the forest, and never hear it coming. You sigh. You apologize to Reisen for making her cry.
She sniffles “I know that you want to save them but. . . but. . .” She hiccups.
You hang your head. You’re now much calmer than you were before, but your mind is still in turmoil. Do you go back for Cirno? Do you just continue to run away? Do you maybe have something that you could use against Marisa, should you go back?

That argument undermines itself. If we know they intend to apply torture as psychological warfare against us, we simply have to not let it distract us, thus eliminating the point of the torture.

It's a gamble. If we're cool-headed any they apply torture, they gain nothing and lose time, while we gain nothing but have a guilty conscience. If we're cool-headed and they don't apply torture, we gain nothing and lose nothing, and they gain nothing but don't lose time.

So really, the only reason to torture is to make us "feel bad" later. It's not tactically in their interests.

No. 13332
I feel like we've been getting pieces of an overall story there from the beginning. Like when Anon first found The Lake, he was compelled to attack it. Obviously a gag from the WUIG mishaps, but for the sake of this story it could be like he's fighting against his true self, some evil lurking within.

Then there's the fact that drinking water seems to heal him, and that whole dream sequence about The Lake. It seems to be leading to Anon actually being the spirit of The Lake, or maybe something sealed in it.

That just means people are getting into it, and that some of the options and situations are pretty serious.

No. 13361
It's probably because this story is Lunatic Mode, and the extra pressure puts us on edge. Some of the options had a real finality and "you're screwed if you don't get this right" feeling to them (e.g. running through the bamboo forest; Eientei dungeon).

It's fun, as long as we don't crack under pressure and start going after each other.
No. 13362
I see. Well, Suwako seems to be the type to listen to reason so that might not be so hard (genuflect like a motherfucker). Hopefully the Tengu will take us since they're pretty hax. We can give Aya back her camera (for all the good it did us) to get in good with her and we'd probably make for a bitchin' story. Headline: Crazy outsider ruffles hair and fights Miko! More on page six.
No. 13363
That's if we can even make it to the shrine now. The group is scattered, we have an injured Reisen to look after and the damn gestapo knows we were on the road to youkai mountain. I doubt we can make it to the shrine on our own so we'll need to ask the tengu/kappas for help.

Hopefully everyone got away safely. Though I can see Reimu using Rumia or Cirno as a hostage.
No. 13381
The problem lies in Kira's options, there's no clear correct path and so we can't make unified decisions. A lot of the choices lately have divided the group which is causing in fighting. Before we could always generally agree that hair ruffling is good and if anon went left down the hall instead of right you didn't really mind not getting the option you wanted.

Now however it's like we're making life or death choices every post. I think Kira should perhaps let us take a break from the high drama and give us some more relaxed choices to make.
No. 13383
Now isn't the best time for relaxing. All we have to do is avoid the flying tank looking for us, get Reisen up to the shrine and hope everyone is ok. I guess we could ask kira to give us a break once we're there. Hell if you'd been through all this shit in a single day you'd expect at least a chance to relax.

No. 13386


One of the best ideas I have heard in a while
No. 13387


Well obviously we need to resolve the current situation.

SO let's ask the big questions right now:

1) Do we go save Cirno, Moku and Twei? Or do we leave them for now and hope to find them later?
No. 13388
I say we save them. we need them all for the group bath scene. Also, we are not going to leave our little sisters in trouble. whe'll go in there, and save them, even if it would cost our life. It's manly time once again
No. 13389
I agree that we need to save them, there were some who said "She's a fairy it'll be fine, she'll reincarnate".

But that's not in the spirit of this anon.
No. 13391
Letting everyone get sparked is unacceptable. It's easy to get Marisa if we just stick to the bushes and jump her from behind if she's bothering to take prisoners.

From there we just shout WHY YOU DO THIS? to her face till she either tells us she doesn't care if what she's doing is wrong or she sees Reimu as the bitch she is.

Try asking about Mima too.
No. 13393

Oh and if she's only after us just get out of there with Reisen and hope everyone makes it to the shrine.

As long as everyone avoids being caught from then on everything should be fine. Hell they might be there at the shrine waiting for us by the time we make it up.
No. 13396
Don't think that Marisa is inclined to talk, Alice maybe but not Marisa.

We should just hit and run. Grab the fairy and get out of there.

So in terms of tactics what should we do? I reckon finding Rumia and Wriggle would help a lot.
No. 13397
Alice sees us not even as a human, we arent even dust on the wall for her. She wont listen to us nor care what happens to us. The only thing we can do is provoke her and hope that she snaps. Then we can hope that either she kills us or betrays Reimu. Its a close call, but may be worth trying.
No. 13399
Trying to successfully hide in bushes AND get close enough to jump Marisa may be expecting too much. It depends on whether Kira's willing to cut us some slack, giving us dense enough bushes to hide in AND having Marisa get close enough without noticing us and blasting us first.

...maybe we should ask if Reisen knows what that card we have is? If we're absurdly lucky, it'll be useful.

Other than that...well, I guess the camera is the default option. We can use it from a reasonable distance, and if we're lucky it'll hit Marisa hard enough to give us time to run.
No. 13402
How much time do you think we have to plan and act with? How can the situation change?
