Having just been unceremoniously ejected from the kitchen, you decide to continue your previously interrupted wanderings. Walking along, you hear a couple of voices talking nearby. Unable to hear them, you decide to move closer. upon reaching the open door, The voices stop. Reisen’s sitting inside and Sanae is standing at the door. Both of them glaring daggers at you. Sanae slides the door closed with quite a bit of force, and you hear her stomp back across the room. The two begin talking animatedly again. You sigh. Really, you fucked up, big time. You need to think of some way to make it up to the girls, or at least let them listen to you long enough for you to try and explain what happened. Oh look, there’s another koi pond on this side too. It looks bigger than the other one. There’s also a tall tree here, next to the pond. A crow lands in the tree and caws again “Ahou, ahou, ahou.” Yeah, yeah, rub it in why don’t you, damn bird. Your head throbs, and you rub it.
[ ] Continue wandering [ ] Dround yourself in the koi pond [ ] Throw a rock at the bird. [ ] Knock on the door, and try and convince Sanae and Reisen to listen to you.
>>17646 I think we need to go to the nearby lake, and stare at its murky waters, clearly contemplating ending it in the inky black abyss.
Just before we can do it, though, we will meet the owner, and after a long talk about everything that has happened over a round of drinks, where she will then give us a rousing pep talk and some advice to finally allow us to regain the drive to regain everyone's trust.
Walking away from the scene, you sigh. This is quite a mess you’ve made for yourself. Your feet carry you forward, and when you look up, you find yourself back at the front of the shrine. You hear a soft sobbing coming from somewhere nearby. Inside the shrine there appears to be someone in the entryway. You sit down on the front steps and look up at the sky. It’s moving on towards afternoon now. The wind gusts suddenly, then returns to it’s normal breeze. You look around, and nothing seems out of the ordinary. You notice a ladder leaning up against the shrine that you didn’t see before. You could probably use it to get up onto the roof, if you so desired.
[ ] Find the source of the sobbing. [ ] Go back inside. [ ] Go up on the roof. [ ] Remain here, looking up at the sky.
Based on everything that's happened this far, I think that no matter what we try, we'll still cock it up. If it weren't for the fact that Reimu is still pissed as shit at Eientei, then I'd recommend just surrendering and taking the TORTURE END to stop endangering everyone else. It's not like anyone wants us around at this point.
>>What are this anon's skills again? We should be able to do something well.
Off the top of my head, we have a Limit Break/Reality Marble involving hair ruffling, the ability to trip the fuck out for no apparent reason, and amazing luck in getting out of the worst situations imaginable.
...oh, and the ability to royally fuck up and land ourselves IN the worst situations imaginable. That one's getting a lot of use, lately.
Remember when we were getting healed, and when we thanked them they said "we'll see if you still thank me" and so on?
Considering we probably would have earned at least a LITTLE sympathy if we were still clearly fucked up from our injuries, rather than have them come to find us completely unharmed, I wonder if this might be what they were talking about...
The sobbing makes your heart sink. Yeah. You’re feeling great now! What ELSE can you do wrong. You decide to find the source of the sobbing and see if you can’t put a stop to it. A quick search leads you outside the gate where Wriggle sits, knees drawn up to her chin, hugging them to her chest, her head face down on her knees. You can guess why she’s upset. Mokou leaving probably hit her hard. The two seemed to get along quite well. You kick yourself again. Wriggle seems to notice your presence and looks up. Her eyes are red, and you can see where tears have been running down her cheeks. She’s been crying for quite some time, you jerk. Seeing you she dries her eyes, stands up and GLARES at you. “THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT! YOU IDIOT!” Wriggle starts hitting you, not hard, but hitting you none the less. “Why. Why did you have to go and do that? You idiot.” she presses her face into your stomach while she continues to hit you. “You made her go away. She said she couldn’t keep protecting a suicidal idiot like that. Just running off with no warning, with no regard for the rest of us.” She starts crying again, still hitting you. Her words quickly become incomprehensible after that, talking, sobbing, and hitting you.
[ ] Hug her. [ ] Stand there and take it. [ ] Try to Console her. [ ] Stop her from hitting you.
>>17700 I don't know about the SDM itself on our side. Judging from her teleporting away, indicating she probably didn't want to be found there by any of the locals, and her line about "keeping up appearances" I think she's outwardly on Marisa's and/or Reimu's side, but might secretly be going against them for some reason.
Of course, if that's the case, and considering how unlikely it is that she would go against Remilia, it might not be so far-fetched that the SDM isn't completely against us.
>>She is also capable of going anywhere through a gap in space, whether it be her entire body or only a part of her. >>It's said that this ability is not limited to physical space, but also applies to pictures, others' dreams, and even stories.
>>17734 Like I said, she wasn't doing us much of a favor by completely healing us like that. At least if we were still severely battered, bruised, and clearly in a good deal of physical pain, we might get some sympathy.
If nothing else, it would show that there's nothing they could really do to us to make us feel worse than we've already done to ourselves.
Instead, we not only did something stupid, but look like we haven't even come out with a scratch from it.
>>17740 Remilia does have fate hax or whatever. She could have sent Patchy to heal us to make the group tear itself apart. That would fit with her following orders, rather than doing it out of her own interests.
I think Anon still needs to have a moment where, completely and utterly crushed by despair and self-loathing, he questions his worth and value and whether or not he should either just die or hand himself over to Reimu rather than let others to continue to suffer for his sake.
Then, Reisen will finally get over being mad at us, and bring us back around with a rousing speech much like the one we used to perk her up.
Maybe this will lead to our defection and our eventual fall to the dark side?
Abandoned by our comrades and hunted by the state, we finally turn to the SDM for our revenge. Our life becomes consumed by our quest to return our hatred a thousand fold on those that once stood shoulder to shoulder with us.
>>17768 They seemed to genuinely like us. We gave Cirno head ruffles and told her it was love, we gave Rumia food, and we protected Wriggle from Reimu. They're not "keeping us around" so much as "keeping around us". It's affection, man.

Wriggle continues to hit you, sobbing for some time before she slowly sinks to the ground, sniffling. She rubs her eyes on her sleeve before she looks back up at you. You feel absolutely horrible. You never meant to hurt any of them like that. You kneel down in front of Wriggle and hug her tightly. You apologize profusely the whole time you hug her. She continues to sniffle. You go on about how you’re an idiot, and it was stupid of you to allow yourself to be dragged off with out as much as a peep. Wriggle hugs you back tightly, while you continue apologizing. You finally break the hug and sit back. Wriggle does the same. The two of you sit there looking at one another, neither one saying a word. Wriggle smiles slightly before speaking, “Why did you let her drag you off? You shrug your shoulders. You honestly can’t remember why on earth you let her drag you off like that. “Are you telling the truth?” You tell Wriggle that you are. She seems satisfied. Standing up, she walks over to you, and ruffles your hair. “Then you should wake up now.”
You sit bolt upright and see Reisen sitting next to you. You’re back in the room that you had been in before this whole mess started. You stutter in confusion, but Reisen shushes you. “I-I’m sorry. I had to know. I had to show you how stupid your decision was. From what Sanae told us, you’re very lucky to even still be alive. If the tengu had found you any later, you would have been dead.” She now looks at you, quite angrily. “We were all worried sick about you. We thought that someone from THEIR group had managed to come in and steal you away from the wagon some how. Mokou flew off the handle. If any of them HAD gotten a hold of you, I doubt they would have long survived in the face of Mokou’s fury. I think she and I were hurt the worst by your little disappearing act. I’m not really sure that Rumia and Cirno really understand what happened. I think they thought you were playing some sort of game.” Reisen sighs. “Everyone’s calmed down now, especially since Sanae managed to heal you. They‘re still quite upset at you, but I don‘t think it will be to the degree that I showed you.” Wait, That’s not right, It was patchy that healed you. . . Wasn’t it? You’re confused now. Reisen doesn’t seem to notice your confusion. “In any event,” Reisen pushes her self up off the ground and picks up her crutches. “It’s almost time for dinner. I’ll see you there.” You continue lying on the futon. So apparently that whole little bit was just an illusion generated by Reisen’s eyes to teach you a lesson. Thank GOD. That was absolutely horrible. You NEVER want to have to go through that again. However, you get the feeling that at least parts of that ‘illusion’ weren’t completely fictional. You’re not sure which parts though.
Getting up from the Futon, you walk out of the room and into the hallway. You’re not quite sure which way the dining room is, but you do smell something delicious. It smells like Stew. Following the smell, you walk out into a large room with a table set up down the middle. There’s pillows scattered around the room. The back of the room seems to connect to the kitchen, and directly across from you, there’s another hallway. Sanae, Reisen, and Mokou are already in the room and sitting.
[ ] Go sit by Sanae [ ] Go sit by Reisen [ ] Go sit by Mokou [ ] Sit by yourself.
The little sisters: They love us, they don't expect anything out of us but they know that they like having us around. They'll be the easiest to win back although Wriggle may be a bit harder because of Moku. They are angry at us for endangering our life so recklessly because they care for us.
Twei: Feels she has to honor her promise to protect us, we haven't spoken to her much which is a problem. Probably doesn't hate us right now
Reisen: Ordered to go with us by Erin and Kaguya for unknown or vague reasons. At first she was with us out of duty, but our pep talk perhaps stirred something within her. Probably the hardest to win back because not only did we go running off to die, she may think we were trying to score with another woman as well.
What I'd like to know is why Mokou cares enough about us to be willing to go on a firey rage of vengeance for our sakes. I mean, I could understand the others, but what connection does she really have to us other than someone to protect for Eientei?
You go to sit down by Reisen. However, before you can sit down, she starts speaking with out even looking up at you. “I still haven’t forgiven you completely yet,” She takes a sip of her tea, “I would suggest you go sit somewhere else.”
[ ] Sit next to Reisen anyways. [ ] Go sit by Sanae. [ ] Go sit by Mokou. [ ] Go sit by yourself.
If the one responsible for making sure we learned our lesson vetoed our sitting next to her, I can't see Mokou being any more receptive. Sanae, maybe. But I think it really is best to sit by our lonesome for now. Besides, then the sisters can sit next to us if they so choose.
Also, are we not wearing our Codec again, or is Reisen intentionally making a point of not talking to us through our mind?
>>17826 Did someone say Man at you? ================================================ You and Reisen are making out hot and heavy. You slide your hand along her thigh, and she moans into your mouth. Raising your hand slightly higher, it slips underneath her skirt. The silky material of her panties runs along under your fingers. You press up against her panties to find. . . A strange bulge?! You whip your hand out from underneath her skirt. "What's the matter," she asks, a confused look on her face. You stutter something out. "Oh, You mean this?" She flips up her skirt, revealing the package sitting in her panties. "I thought everyone had one of these?"
>>17870 Like hell, she saved the day. She made us realise we are an idiot and that we wont do that shit again. And everyone else is fine now again. Just needs some time until it everyone is totaly happy again
>>17881 I think of it more like getting spanked by your parent after doing something wrong.
The idea isn't that you're going to avoid your parent in fear that they'll hit you for some other reason, it's that you won't be stupid enough to do what you did to warrant the spanking in the first place.
“You can sit by me if you want,” Sanae says. Reisen simply turns and looks at her, an unamused look on her face. “Ah.. er.. Maybe it would be better if you sat somewhere else. You walk down to the far end of the table and sit down. Reisen, Sanae, and Mokou are chatting animatedly. A hand slaps you on the back. “Cheer up, kid. She’s not as angry as she makes out to be, but you really did worry her half to death.” Tewi plops down next to you. She smirks at you, while leaning on the table. “I have a pretty good idea why you went off with that Hina character though. Tryin to wet your whistle, I betcha.” You stutter out that’s not it at all, but she cuts you off. “Heh. I’m just messing with you. Relax. You don’t get to be as old as I am with by taking everything so seriously, and few things surprise you anymore. Mokou flying off the handle like that? Now THAT surprised me. Shoulda seen it coming. You’re the treasure of her lil’ darling, so of course she’s not gonna let any harm come to you. heh.” Tewi is still smirking at you. Wait, her little darling? You press Tewi on the ‘little darling’ comment. Tewi shrugs her shoulders. “Oh? You’re still goin on about that? I have no idea what you’re talking about. It would seem that dinner’s about to be served. I should go get the others~!” With that, Tewi gives you a final knowing smirk, before toddling off to find the others.
In short order, most everyone’s gathered around the table. However, there’s still a few open spots at the table. There’s two by Sanae, one on either side of her, a couple by Mokou, and two directly opposite you. The two girls you met in the kitchen before (You guess that much really did happen?) bring out a large pot of what appears to be stew. They go back into the kitchen and return with another pot. They repeat this process a couple of times, and the table is quickly covered in food. During this time, a Woman with blue hair, wearing a red dress comes in and sits next to Sanae. Suwako and Cirno come in shortly after that. Cirno comes over and sits across from you while Suwako takes the other seat next to Sanae. Soon all the seats are filled as the two girls from the kitchen sit down. Sanae offers up a prayer to this Kanako, before everyone starts eating. Sitting near you are Tewi, Cirno, Rumia, Wriggle. Across from you is Minoriko and Shizuha. Wriggle still seems a little bit upset with you, and Rumia is currently stuffing her face. You have a little bit of the stew and taste a faint hint of pepper.
[ ] Talk to the Aki sisters. [ ] Talk to Cirno [ ] Talk to Wriggle [ ] Talk to Rumia [ ] Talk to Tewi [ ] Eat in Silence.
>>17899 Reisen can't read your mind, It's just you don't know how the crap to use the button properly yet. You sent her the same message about 7~8 times when you were trying to use the button to ask her about Nitori.
>>17899 Assuming she could read my mind before marriage, and thus accepted my proposal knowing full-well exactly how my psyche works?
Eh, sure. Worst case scenario, she plays me for a fiddle, bleeds me of everything I have, and then figures out have to have me killed in such a way as to look like an accident to collect on my massive insurance policy.
But, considering all the potential positives if she truly and honestly loves you, I'd say it's damn worth it.
I notice that some Anon have some serious trust issues and tend to question the motives of people when they do seemingly questionable things for our benefit.
Like suspecting poor Keine of trying to drug or poison us in WUIG, when really she's just not very good at following directions and reading the labels on bottles. And now dear Reisen, who wanted to show us the error of our ways in a safe and physically harmless way before we fucked things up for real, is being doubted?
Boy, it's a good thing none of you lived in Hinamizawa.
>>17937 Until you bludgeon Wriggle, Rumia, and Cirno to death when you think they've given in to their youkai tendencies and are going to eat you when all they were wanting was some hugs and hair rufflings, and then run off and claw out your throat in the phone booth Rinnosuke has in his backyard, at least.
>>17935 some people care less about characters as others do. the not-keine/reisen option is usually some kind of distrust. you vote for it to leave their routes and step into the more interesting ones.
I don't think that would work. Even if our mind is being manipulated, the manipulations are still going to be based upon what we ourselves know, not what she does.
It's like when you hypnotize someone. Even if you can control their actions, you cannot make them do something they themselves do not know how to do, such as speak in another language if they don't even know that language.
>Mokou flying off the handle like that? Now THAT surprised me. Shoulda seen it coming. You’re the treasure of her lil’ darling, so of course she’s not gonna let any harm come to you. Wait... As in.. Mokou's little darling..." This is an interesting development. It's like tsundere to lethal extremes. On the other hand, it sure helps explain why the hell Mokou, generally thought to be Kaguya's sworn enemy, is helping us out at Kaguya's request. Unless she's loopy from the smacking that fiddled up her jaw, and can't remember straight.
>>17889 In my case I lusted after Jun, and wanted to BE Mizuho.
>>17950 I ask this a lot, myself, as well as wondering why people insist on writing "Twei".
>>17937 Yeah, that kind of thinking totally didn't fuck over anyone in Hinamizawa.
>>17928 >fuck, it's like 1984. you mean... It's like 1983. June, to be precise.
>>17969 Like I said, I don't think that's the way to go about it. The key isn't what someone else does or does not know, it's what our own mind is or is not willing to believe. If we want to snap ourselves out of a dream/illusion, we have to push it to a point where it completely goes against what we know is true or possible, forcing our mind to no longer accept it.
Clearly, this means we have to try to get everyone in Gensokyo (or at least the ones we know) all together for one massive orgy. If we fail and get everyone to hate us even more, it's probably not a dream. If we succeed and get everyone together, then we will most likely wake up before anything good happens.
...why the fuck would we want to break any mind-fucking we have on us, again?
I should think anything we could tell her about the outside world would outweigh whatever faggotry Anon might have committed, not that he did anything wrong, of course, Reisen's just being a bitch. (a jealous bitch)
>>17993 See, now THAT would actually work. Not only would it prevent someone from the outside from feeding stuff into our brain, but it would also prevent someone from simply manipulating us into just thinking we're hearing what we want to hear.
...unless we're being mindfucked by someone of extremely high intellect. In other words, it would work against Reisen's mindfuck, but probably not Yukari's.
