Today is a dire day-
A dark event-
A foul reckoning!

You fail again to pry your hand from Master Kasen’s iron grasp.

“I’m not going to let you get out of this.”

--She cuts off your next protest.

“You need your hands to multiply! You can’t find your house on a map! You thought platinum was a fruit!

It’s not your fault if it sounds delicious!
And there's a good reason for the map thing!

“No buts! The school invited me to speak, so you’re going to come along!”

Fist raised, you curse the name of “school.”


For the new guys:

You are a particularly adventurous young human dedicated to ditching school by training to become a hermit. You can fly under your own power and have the strength of ten men.

“You listen to my lectures every day! They’ve got another teacher doing a talk, maybe she’ll have more luck than I have.”


You force your way into the packed classroom and squeeze into a seat in the back row.

Keine hasn’t appeared yet, at least! You hope she’s not teaching today. Her last lecture on ethics really hurt your head.

Just then, the green-haired youkai that’s always sweeping up in front of the temple walks in the door. She cups her hands around her mouth.

Gaatee, Gaatee!

The windows rattle, and the other kids stop talking to cover their ears.

Keine’s lecture was still worse.

“Hijiri is giving a lecture personally to the older children, so she had me come here.” She says, twiddling her thumbs. Clearing clears her throat, she begins speaking in a perfect copy of the monk’s voice.


You yawn as she drones on and on about youkai and humans and something.

Hey, isn’t that Rumia? Why is she in the school? Keine threw her out last time she tried. Right through the wall.

She seems really focused on the lecture this time, though. You listen in. “...temple fully endorses interspecies relationships and marriages...”

Interwhatsitses? You tune out again. Oh, now she’s blushing. When the lecture mentions “half-youkai” she jumps a little.

It’s really boring...


What if..."

You can’t afford to blow your cover. You’ll just have to sit tight!

She fidgets with her hands for the next few minutes. Then, after glancing around the room red-faced, she slips out the door, mumbling something about “bathroom.”

Hey, that’s cheating!

You slip out into the hall, with the same excuse.

What a great idea!

Actually, they're black
I didn't expect that color on her.
She's the Youkai of Darkness. What color would you expect?
Most artists draw them white, so yeah. But that's because they treat her as a child.
This was a line in Holidanon's summer story.

Was this on purpose or were you being honest?

Watch out guys, the plagiarism police are out in force tonight.
It was both a reference and me being honest, see >>145591

I'm glad someone caught it.
I was quoting him in response to >>145590 that it might actually have been a reference and not just a simple statement. Yes, I could have constructed my post so much better than I did to get my intentions across, but when answering the phone my divided attention erased what I had in mind and I ended up submitting a quick, half-assed reply. Being on my laptop at the time didn't help, either.
This, of all things, spawns the largest discussion in a holiday story to date.

Clearly, I have had my priorities all wrong.
Well it's Rumia, naturally people are going to discuss what color panties she wears.

Also please don't end up obsessed with discussion like some writers.

I don't know how to break it to you, man...


One of the doors is open!

They redecorated the carpet pattern in the nurse’s office. Brown spotted is pretty tacky, you say.

Maybe you could stay here and-

“You’re a student here, right? Are you sick or hurt?”

Who is she?

“Oh, I’m sorry. I’m Heather, the school nurse. I just got the job last month, so...”

She’s a lot younger than the last nurse. And a girl. Really a girl, this time. She gives you a shy smile, then--


Oh, ew.

“Oh, I’m--” cough “--I’m so sorry!”

Red shoes are popular now, anyway. You think.

The bell rings for the next class.


So much for that idea.

You've found the perfect profession, Heather. Nurse outfits would look good on you, and you can get all the psychotherapy drugs you could ever need.

Now bring on Reina doing the nude modeling.
Sometimes, an emoticon is the most efficient way to express a thought. Like this time.

If you really want discussion, making a story that isn't a sequence of unrelated setpieces might be a good idea. I love Holidanon, but it's kinda hard to discuss anything when nothing is predictable.

So much for catching Rumia.

I'll see if I can churn out another update around Thanksgiving, when I have a break, maybe another one later over Christmas break, even!

Update maybe this afternoon?
It shouldn't take more then an hour for you to make one of these very short updates, so get to work you lazy nigger.
Back then it took less than 15 minutes for a writer to make a quick update.
Every time I make a perverse statement, you always respond with a vague 'it could happen', but it never does. How you play with my heart so.

Or instead of models... nude body painting! The feel of those bristles on such sensitive areas. I'm going to paint a blush on you~

Missed the joke~

Yeah that one's definatley not gonna happen. At least not in one of these stories.

New extra raunchy flavor!


“Your lack of refinement the Underground look civilized. You need to learn how to appreciate art!”

What about the wood carvings she was studying last n--

“Not that kind of art!” she shouts, cheeks pink.


The desks are spread out, with paintings on painting-stands in front of them.

It smells like pine trees~


It’s the pajama wizard!

“Your assessment is entirely correct, while at the same time lacking everything a proper greeting should have. Simply amazing.”

“At least stop reading while you criticize them,” the red she-devil says, over her shoulder.

“The blow to their confidence will be at least twice as strong if you give them your undivided attention,” the snappily-dressed devil man quips, from the other side.

“You really shouldn’t be giving that kind of criticism to middle schoolers, miss Knowledge.”
It’s an ordinary, unremarkable highschooler!

“Yes, yes. Please take your seat, Jin.”

“My name’s not-”

“Class is starting!” She-devil chimes!

With a skip, she’s standing on a soapbox in the center of class.

“Today, we’ll be doing model paintings, so look at me closely!”

With a theatrical sweep of her arm, her vest is already off, and her shirt is down two buttons!

Could this be a new record!?

Pajama gives her a sharp glare, and she freezes. She sends an appealing look to her ally, the devil man!

He shrugs helplessly.

“Awwww. Fiiiine.” She redresses. The entire class joins her in a disappointed sigh.

The wizard reads in the corner, the devils both vanish toward the restroom, and the students placidly paint pictures of mundane apples and vazses. Jin keeps glancing at the teacher instead of his subject.

The devil woman comes back with messy hair, followed by the other devil and... a fairy maid?

Aren’t they students?

beep beep beep beep beep

“Class dismissed,” your “teacher” says.

Now that that class is done, which one comes next?

Wait! That’s not right! What were you thinking!"

Wait a second....

Oh you bastard, you are a real bastard for making me remember THAT story. Of course if this story has the same spirit as that one, then don't quit and actually finish this.
>telling him to not quit this

If he did, I would be much happier myself. This story itself was kinda salt-in-the-wound, and the mention of Jin (out of all the names with the exact same meaning) was kinda the straw that will break the camels back.

Besides. Only an update a day at the very least for such short updates? pffft.

You're both retarded and need to shut up. Holiday anon's ventures are a long-standing tradition, and it's always featured various references to other stories. That this particular update, in a school setting, has a single reference to Jin and Taisa's story isn't a cue for the buttdevastated faggot brigade to start whining about it.
[x] Warning bells
So a mention of GH gets more notice than Koakuma having a a (probable) threesome with Sera and Voile in the Supply closet?

Clearly, I have underestimated you. Or overestimated.
People are more willing to get vocal about what they hate than what they appreciate. I thought that was a bit more obvious here.
I'm perfectly fine with references, so long as said references arent pouring salt into the wound. Especially when that story is it-who-shalt-be-named.

Notice the number of people not butthurt over the story? I read it too, you know. Get over it.
GH's fame/infamy has eclipsed anything in post-HY /sdm/. I figured something like that happened in the update.

When most of the site gets interested in a story, the end result would never be pretty.

Despite not even being in /sdm/? Impressive.

All that talk about GH reminds me how much i miss it. No Rumia route leaves me in despair. She was such a bro and we finally could talk about her mother and life before this.

Note to self: Never, ever, reference GH in another story.
Note to self: Reference GH more, fuck the haters.

Also lovely Rumia.
>reference GH more

Hey bro, You're only supposed to shoot yourself in the foot once, Not with the whole clip.

Sponge-like feet give better grip.

I had to re-read the update twice to find the line where the threesome is sugested. I don't think it's the hate (of one or two anons), but rather how there isn't much description and details.

Also, just ignore the haters. It may be hard for them, but you shouldn't have prolems doing that.

I just realized Dr. Q is the only person on this site who has actually completed a story with Rumia as a main character. As far as I know, I haven't read everything.

Good Job
Which one was that?
I don't see why I should mention it. It won't affect the story.

Because that's how writers decide which parts were good. It's a comedy story. It'd be like telling jokes to an audience that never laughs.

That's the short answer.

Also, hopefully today or tomorrow I can update. Homework has been kinda heavy recently.

You slide into the hall.


You didn’t hit them, so it’s all fine!


Who put a pillar in the middle of the... hall...

“Oh!” the antlered figure bellows. “You’re that kid who keeps dropping by, aren’t you?” The seams of his uniform creak as he raises lifts a hand. What is he-

No, no, you won’t ask.

“Oh, what’s an Oni doing in school?”

You look past him at the green-haired shrine maiden highschooler.


“For times like these,” he says, looking her over. “See you later, kid!” He walks off, flashing a grin.


Ah! There it goes!

Head tilted, she brushes back her hair.

“If I tell them about this, maybe I can get Hoshuu and Ku-chan to come, too...”
