A couple hints to get you started-
The full 9 squad is required for anything resembling a good ending.
9 squad: Cirno, Rumia, Chen, Wriggle, Letty, Mystia.
Ex 9 squad: Aki sisters, Hina, Medicine.
Mystia is someone you don’t want to meet at night.
Letty likes cold places.
Checking garbage cans sometimes gives surprising results.
Magicians tend to have quite a bit of information.
You’re dreaming. Dreaming a dream of a dreamlike dream. You’re
trudging across a field of snow. It’s snow as far as the eye can see,
and most likely snow far beyond that. The passage of time is
immeasurable in this white, featureless landscape with snow falling
almost constantly. It’s cold, but you don’t feel it any more.
Eventually you collapse, your body shuddering beyond your control. A
pair of feet come into your view. It looks like they’re wearing white
“Too bad we couldn’t have met earlier. I might have liked you. . .” The voice giggles.
There’s an extreme cold that envelops your body just before everything fades to black.
Some time later you wake up. Face down on top of a hill. Pushing
yourself up off the ground rewards you with a throbbing headache. You
manage to get yourself up into a sitting position and, looking around,
you see nothing familar. Nearby there's a forest, Down the hill in the
distance there seems to be a village, and on the edge of the forest,
off in the opposite direction of the village, there seems to be a
shrine. There’s some cloud cover overhead, and a slight rumbling. It
looks like it might rain. Where will you go? [ ] Into the woods
[ ] Down to the villiage
[ ] To the shrine
[ ] LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE (this option is grayed out.)
[ ] Become An Hero.
>>39494 Honestly man, you can find ways to explain shit in more ways than
one. Is there some shit we should be able to miss? Yeah, of course, but
theres also some shit we should find out no matter what. The only thing
we really found out last time is that Yukari had a plan. Big revelation
While the Shrine or the village may be good places to go, something in
the woods calls you. Collect even. You want to find the person who just
called you so you can make them pay the charges. You’re quickly
swallowed up by the woods as you charge forward. Going in what you
perceive to be a straight line, you quickly find yourself lost among
the myriad trees. You could, theoretically, go back the way you came,
given that you haven’t turned around at all, and it should be a
straight shot out. Well, now you know how Hansel and Gretel felt. Something small and green flits pats you. It. . . It looks like a
tiny little person, wearing a green dress. What the hell? As quickly as
it was there, it’s gone now. Well that was odd. You wonder what you’re
tripping on, because it must be some damn good shit. In any event, you
could probably follow the little fairy illusion thing, go back the way
you came, or continue wandering through the woods.
[ ] Wander.
[ ] Chase the Fairy.
[ ] Make like a tree and get the hell out of here.
[ ] Call out for assistance.
[ ] Dance.
Eh, might as well follow this trip through to it’s logical
conclusion. Following along, you see the fairy-like thing flitting
along in front of you. Well, at least you think it’s the same fairy you
saw before. It’s wearing a red dress now. Twisting and turning through
the woods brings you to the edge of a clearing, where there are dozens
of fairies gathered. They seem to be watching something going on in the
clearing. You move closer to try and get a better look, but can’t see
anything through the cloud of fairies. You can hear two people talking.
. . well, shouting would be a more accurate description.
“For the LAST TIME. STOP stealing thing from MY HOUSE.” The first voice sounds quite angry.
A new voice laughs, “I’m only borrowing it until I die ~ze. Come get it back then.”
“I am sick and tired of you thinking you can waltz in whenever you
feel like it, and just take my things! I need many of the things that
you claim that you’re ‘borrowing’. Sure I can let some of these things
go, but. . .” The first voice trails off.
“Eh? I’ve never seen you like this before ~ze.” The first voice sounds confused.
“GIVE IT BACK. NOW.”
“EH?! DON’T ATTACK SO SUDDENLY ~ZE!”
It sounds like whatever’s going on over there is quite a fight.
[ ] Push through the fairies to get a better view.
[ ] Wander off.
[ ] Call out to the people.
[ ] Talk to the fairies.
People shouting? Do not want. The fairies in front of you, however, seem all a buzz about the two girls. Huh.
“Hey, what’s going on there?”
The fairies suddenly turn and see you, realizing that you’re there
for the first time. They stare at you for a moment before one of them
screams. They suddenly all scatter in every direction, except towards
you. Several dozen fly out into the clearing.
“AHHH! THEY’RE IN MY HAIR ~ZE. GET THEM OUT GET THEM OUT ~ZE!” You
can now see a girl with long blonde hair with several fairies tangled
up in it. They’re flailing madly only serving to get themselves more
stuck in her hair. The other girl, with short blonde hair swats a few
fairies away while laughing at the plight of the other long haired
blonde girl. “Don’t just stand there, Alice, help me ~ze! They’re really stuck!”
‘Alice’ just stands there, still laughing at the sorry mess that the first girl’s become.
Looking around, you don’t see any fairies left, other than the ones
in the blonde girl’s hair. Oh well, it’s not like you really expected
figments of your. . . Wait, they’re caught in that girl’s hair, which
means that they must be real. WHAT?! Fairies aren’t real. . . Are they?
They can’t be. . . Right?
[ ] Go talk to the two girls.
[ ] Get away from this place, as fast as you can.
[ ] Scream.
>>39622 No anonymous, not tonight..... I'm too tired. I have to get up in
the morning, I said not tonight. I have a head ache. I'm on. Can't we
just cuddle? We don't have to do it every night. I told you I was busy
tomorrow, let me rest. It's a heavy flow and I'm embarrassed. Can't you
just please yourself? We'll do it tomorrow I promise. I'm not in the
mood. I've had a few drinks and if you make me do it I'll be sick.
Your head is spinning. This must all be some bizarre dream. It only
takes a few steps and you’re in the clearing. The girl with long blonde
hair is still fighting with the fairies in her hair, but Alice seems to
take notice of you the second you step into the clearing. She turns to
face you, and her eyes narrow instantly. “Hm? And who might you be?”
“What’s going on here?! There’s fairies! They’re real?!” You sound slightly panicked. Alice seems taken aback by this.
“Well, of course there’s fairies! Why wouldn’t there be. . . You’re not from here are you?”
“Ah. . . I’m not quite sure where ‘here’ is, to be honest. I just sort of woke up here, a little while ago.”
Alice tilts her head to one side and is about to say something when the other girl screams.
“AUGH! GET THEM OFF GET THEM OFF!” She flails around randomly
running back and forth in place before she pulls out a strange little
“ACK!” Alice quickly flies into the sky and zooms away. The other
blonde girl is waving this strange little hexagonal thing around in
front of her with one hand, batting at the fairies with the other hand.
[ ] Make like a tree and get the hell out of there.
[ ] Go try and help the girl get the fairies out of her hair.
[21:06] <NEfff> Hmm. Well I'm assuming the Reimu comes after
us has a time-trigger. And after that, the information sources decrease
because we have hostiles.
[21:07] <@Dark_Mercury> partially.
[21:07] <@Dark_Mercury> Anon took a huge jump when they got gapped.
[21:07] <Kapow> kira, you at least have it set up so there's more than one possible scene to get any important info from?
[21:07] <@Dark_Mercury> Yep.
[21:07] <@Dark_Mercury> There's usually a couple.
[21:07] <Kapow> so unless we fuck up really bad we won't miss anything
[21:07] <@Dark_Mercury> Anon's proven adept at avoiding them.
[21:07] <@Dark_Mercury> Gapping usually means you're skipping things.
[21:07] <NEfff> Goddammit, Yukari.
[21:08] <Kapow> so we have to avoid gapping...somehow
[21:08] <Kapow> does something trigger it? or what?
[21:08] <@Dark_Mercury> Usually getting stuck in dark places.
[21:08] <@Dark_Mercury> Gapping works much like grue.
[21:08] <@Dark_Mercury> 'cept instead of getting eaten, you're thrown to a random location.
Ah, You really do suppose you should help her, given that you scared the fairies into the clearing, you guess.
“Hold on a minute, I’ll help you.” You shout to the girl. It takes
a scant few seconds to get over to the girl, who’s still flailing about
wildly. “Ack, Stop flailing so much and I’ll help you.”
“AH! JUST HURRY ~ZE! THEY’RE DRILLING INTO MY BRAIN!” She continues to flail madly.
You have no idea what she meant by that, but you have an idea to make her stop flailing.
“Hey, You’ve got fairies on your face.”
The girl stops flailing and stares at you stupidly. Taking the
advantage you reach up to her hair and start helping the fairies
disentangle themselves from this girl’s hair. It takes several minutes
to get the first one out. The whole while the blonde girl is twitching.
“So uh. . . you-”
“My name’s Marisa”
“So, uh. . . Marisa, What did you take from that girl?”
“I DIDN’T TAKE ANYTHING!” Marisa whips around to face you, making the two fairies that are still stuck in her hair scream.
“Ah, But the fairies are still stuck in your hair.”
“Oh. . . right.” Marisa’s cheeks redden before she quietly turns
back around. The last two fairies come out quickly, and flit away into
the sky, thanking you for helping them out of the tangley yellow mass.
You snicker at the name that they use for it. Marisa humps and stomps
her foot. “It’s not that much of a mess! I comb it weekly ~ze!. Jeeze.
Fairies ~ze. They’re always so rude. Anyways, thanks for that. I’ve
gotta get going though, see ya ~ze!”
With that Marisa picks up a broom off of the ground and flies off into the sky, leaving you alone in the clearing.
You’re left standing there wondering what the he. . .
“OI!~ ZE”, Marissa zooms back from the sky and floats in front of
you. “I forgot, you’re not from here. If you wanna get out of this
place, you should head to the shrine. It’s just over that way ~ze.”
Marisa waves off in a direction. “Or if you wanna stay here a while,
you should go to the human village ~ze. I have to run. See you ~ze”
With that, Marisa is gone, again. You stand there a few moments,
thinking she might come back again, but it seems that she really is
gone this time. Oh well.
[ ] Go off towards the shrine.
[ ] Go off towards the village.
[ ] Go wander.
[ ] This seems like a nice spot. Stay here.
Sorry guys, got distracted by the greatest typo ever.
[21:05] <@Dark_Mercury> oR SおＭetHiNG
[21:06] <Suika_Wright> ... i think you found a new level of typo.
You may not want to go home just yet, but this ‘shrine’ sounds like
it’s closer, given that you saw it on the edge of this forest when you
headed in. Above you the clouds rumble ominously. Damn it, is it going
to start raining sometime soon? Meh. No matter. You set off in the
general direction that Marisa waved off in. As you’re walking you come
across what appears to be a trail of some sort. It’s heading off in the
direction that you’re going anyways, so you decide to follow it and see
if it’ll get you to where you’re going. After walking along for a while
you come across a three way fork in the trails. Well, it’s not so much
a fork as there’s a main path, which you’re currently on, and two
smaller paths that branch off from it.
[ ] Right
[ ] Left
[ ] Straight ahead (this option is grayed out)
Oh, just so you guys know, greyed out options just mean that you've
taken that choice before, and it leads to a scene that you've already
been to. The scene may be slighly different based uppon your
interactions leading up to it, but it's essentially the same scene.
The right path leads upwards slightly and seems to be relatively
infrequently traveled. That may be why it piques your curiosity so
much. Well, whatever. You step off of what could be supposed to be the
‘main path’ and onto this side path. The path winds and twists it’s way
up the hill. It doesn’t seem like very long, but it’s quite a bit
darker when you come out of the woods at the base of a huge stairway.
Wow. That’s a lot of stairs. This must lead up to the shrine. The accent is slow and painstaking. Step after step, you loose
count after the first dozen steps. The angle is quite steep too, which
makes it worse. When you finally reach the top of the stairs, you’re
quite tired. You didn’t realize you were QUITE this out of shape. It’s
been a long time since you did that kind of physical exercise. Looking around, it seems that the shrine grounds are deserted.
You wonder if people really are sent out of this place from here, given
the fact that there doesn’t seem to be anyone here. Or has been here
for a while, given the number of leaves on the ground. Overhead a bolt of lighting flashes, followed quickly by a rumble
of thunder. Great. It’s probably going to start raining any. . . Of
course, as soon as you start thinking that it might start raining, it
does. You run over to your right, where there’s a building separate
from what is, apparently, the main shrine. The walkway around the
building is under the roof, so it’s keeping the rain off of you. The
storm has quickly developed into a downpour with some gusting winds.
Really quite annoying. You sigh. What a day this has turned out to be.
Stuck in some strange land, where fairies exist, and girls can just fly
away on a whim. Why should anything surprise you in this place? The
storm seems to be getting worse, so sitting out here won’t be a
solution for long.
[ ] Go in the building.
[ ] Yell and see if you can get someone’s attention.
[ ] Go to the shrine.
[ ] Go back the way you came.
We are not going to get a good ending. Or anything that resembles a
good ending. Either accept that now or stop reading as doing so will
only serve to piss you off. If you're cool with it then just keep on.
Well, staying here isn’t an option. The next best thing would be to
head for the shrine. You dash out across the courtyard and up to the
main door of the shrine. Trying the door you find it locked. Damnit.
The rain is still pouring down and the door here isn’t sheltered from
the rain. THUD. The dull sound resonates around from you kicking the
door. It doesn’t even budge in the slightest. Standing here isn’t doing
you any favors, and only serving to make you more wet. This sucks.
[ ] Stay in the rain.
[ ] Go back to the side building.
[ ] Singing in the Rain~
As you’re standing there, in the pouring rain, an umbrella
falls down from above. You deftly catch it and hold it above you. Mn.
An umbrella is nice. For some odd reason, it really makes you want to
sing. You stride forward humming some little tune you remember from
somewhere. . .
A few steps later, you look up into the sky, still humming. You
stop and put your hand out, feeling the rain again. The umbrella rests
on your shoulder while you look at your hand, then over at the
umbrella. Shrugging, you bring the umbrella down, the rain pouring from
above. It closes in one swift movement as you pull down on the
umbrella’s release mechanism. You return the umbrella to your shoulder
and start walking forward again.
“I’m Siiiiiinging in the rain~ Just siiiiiiinging in the rain~ What a glorious feeling~ I’m happy again~”
You reach the Torii at the front of the shrine and hop up on the block, hanging off of it by one arm.
“I’m laughing at clouds~ So dark up above~” swinging back and forth
on the Torii, you hop down from it and start walk around the base,
leaning up close to it again. “The sun’s in my heart~ and I’m ready for
Pushing off, you step away from the Torii into the courtyard again,
“Let stormy clouds chase~ everyone from the place~” The rain pours down
on your face as you look straight up into the sky once again, “Come on
with the rain! I’ve a smile on my face!”
“ I walk down the lane~ with a happy refrain~” the umbrella twirls
in your hand while you walk now, “Just singin’~ Singin’ in the rain~”
By now, a large puddle has formed in the middle of the courtyard,
close to the side builidng. You dance around a bit, splashing merrily
in the puddle and jumping up onto the walkway around the side building
when you realize that you’re not quite alone. You turn, slowly, to face
the girl who’s standing there, on the walkway, with her arms crossed.
She stares at you for a moment before you just look at her, smile
brightly and shrug.
“Um… What are you doing” The small girl with horns growing out of her head asks you.
“Me? I’m just singing in the rain!” You smile, standing out in the pouring rain.
“Oh. Huh. Ok.” She brushes a bit of her red hair aside.
“Wanna join me?” You grin widely at the girl.
“Is that a challenge” She returns your wide grin with an equal, if not larger intensity.
[ ] Yes, this is a CHALLENGE! HOOOAAAAAAA!
[ ] Nope, just an invitation to dance in the rain.
“It’s been a long time since I’ve had a challenge from a human!” She giggles “By the way, my name’s Suika. Nice to meet you.”
Suika reaches out her hand and grabs yours, shaking it quite
forcefully. You’re almost thrown off your feat. This girl is STRONG.
But, while she may be strong, she can’t beat you now! You’re all fired
“So, Singin’. . . And Dancin’. . . In the ra~in.” You smile at her, “That’s the challenge.”
The girl nods, agreeing to the terms. You lead off, you dance back
and forth in front of the side building the umbrella your imaginary
dance partner. Suika follows suit behind you. She really is does seem
to be quite good at this. Makes you wonder if she’s ever done something
like this before. The pair of you continue to dance all over the
courtyard, back and forth, up and around to the front of the shrine.
This continues for quite some time until you fall on your back, looking
up into the sky. You’re breathing heavily. Suika splashes down in the
puddle next to you, also on her back.
“You’re good.” You laugh.
Suika starts laughing too. “You too. I haven’t had this much fun in a long time.”
The two of you continue laughing for a short while before someone
clears their throat. Both of you freeze. Slowly you tilt your head back
and are greeted by the sight of a black haired girl, wearing a red and
white outfit. She sighs and shakes her head.
“What are you two doing?” She looks annoyed.
“I was just challenging this human!” Suika is back on her feet,
smiling brightly. The girl in red white brings her gohei down on
Suika’s head. She clutches her head around her horns as her eyes tear
“What have I told you about challenging people! You can’t just go abducting them because you feel like it!”
Suika sniffles a little, “But, but. . . He challenged me! I didn’t challenge him!”
The girl in red and white brings the gohei down again. Suika cries out and rubs her head again.
“Enough. We’re both soaked. Let’s just go inside. And you,” The red white girl turns to you, “What are you doing here?”
[ ] Singin in the ra~in
[ ] I wandered in here on a southern breeze, don’t mind me.
[ ] Marisa sent me.
[ ] Nothing.
>[ ] I was going to donate, but she stole my money.
Oi oi, I thought we were trying to avoid getting Reimu pissy at us
this time. Lying and playing her against Marisa before we've met a
single member of the Nineball crew.... We'll end up getting thrown into
Angry Reimu Lunatic MODO even earlier than last route.
Inventory: Cellphone 1ea. LHC blueprints 1ea. Wallet 1ea. Clothing 1ea. Pen 1ea. Notepad 1ea.
You sit upright and look at the red white girl. “Well, someone
named Marisa sent me up here. I was thinking about donating to this
fine establishment, however, this Marisa person took all of my money.”
The red white girl sighs and hangs her head. “Yeah, that sounds
like Marisa alright. You must have had some out. . . Hey, did you just
show up here today?”
You nod. The girl glares at you for a moment then sighs. “Huh. I
guess you’re not the one from earlier. . . Did you see anyone else when
you showed up? Was anyone wandering around near you?!” The girl sounds
“Uh. . . No? I just woke up face down on a hill.” You tilt your
head to one side and look at the girl. Suika takes you by the arm and
pulls you to your feet.
“C’mon inside! I’ll getcha clean’d up nice and quick!” Suika starts
dragging you towards the door of the side building. “Get some nice
drinks into ya too! You can challenge me to a drinking game!”
“Oi! Don’t decide things like that on your own!” The red white girl seems rather annoyed at Suika.
“Awww. . . c’mon Reimu! He’s got nowhere else to go. He’s an
outsider. It’s not like he’ll be able to make it back to the village
before nightfall, even if you take him. And you know darn well what
happens to humans in the forest after dark.”
This Reimu girl sighs. “Alright. He can stay here-”
Suika starts cheering before she’s interrupted by Reimu.
“BUT only for tonight.”
“Awww. . . Well that’s better than nothing.” With that, Suika
resumes tugging on your arm, puling you towards the side building. With
her strength it’s not like you could resist. You half stumble, are half
dragged along into the house. Reimu sighs and shakes her head again
before following along behind the two of you.
