"Sakuya did nothing." Meiling replies to you obstinately. "I was merely told I shouldn't socialize so much on the job. Sir, it is good to see you are well; you should head off home and rest after such an ordeal." It appears China isn't wavering from her story, but this presents a bit of an awkward situation.
"Yes, where do you live?" Glad to switch to another topic, Keine smiles, looking up at you. "You never mentioned it."
"Oh wow, where ever you live has to be awesome, because you know, I'd never settle for anything less than the most BEST human ever! C'mon, you gotta show me, tell me, tell me!" Despite her poor grammar near the end there, Cirno looks rather eager to see where you live.
Mokou does not comment. What exactly do you tell them?
[ ] "Well, I kind of don't live in Gensokyo."
[ ] "It's just a normal house, forget about it."
[ ] "I live far away. Too far, don't worry. I'm on a journey."
[ ] "Alright, well, I'm from another world, you see, so that's rather hard..."
>>4932 People most likely don't double post. We respect this game too much. Also, if we really have to, we can always ask for some kind of "monitor" from the admin of these boards, who can check the IP of votes. But that seems a bit extreme.
[x] "Alright, well, I'm from another world, you see, so that's rather hard..."
It SHOULD be common knowledge that there is an outside world... By why is the technology at such a low level then? Given that there are many modern-times people who wandered into Gensokyo, there ought to be some sort of technological advancement, right?
well let me put it this way, do you personally have enough knowledge of the sciences to apply them practically? Even if that's a yes do you think you can encourage the people of Gensokyo to help you apply these methods when magic is readily available? Does Gensokyo have the infrastructure to support what you want to do? Do you have the tools needed? Can you handle any possible Youkai interference?
It's probably for these reasons Gensokyo hasn't moved on. People may have tried but they either die or get with the program.
Could we be happy with 7 for now, until momentum picks up? I'm guessing most people were expecting this to start at 2:00.
Also, how would people like me to maintain some kind of RSS feed stating whether or not a YWUIG is going on, as well as announced times? It wouldn't be perfect, but I haven't missed a single thread yet.
As an aside, last friday I went to see Stephen Colbert as part of a lecture series. It wasn't so much a lecture as it was a stand up routine. Well, in the process of mocking the dreary nature of our city he talked about the settlers coming here in mid-May, loving the area and burning the wagons. Mid-September sets in and they are sorely regretting the.
Funny enough, but I lost it when he said a bunch of them threw themselves into the lake.
>>4969 Not that many outsiders really, most humans are descended from those that lived in Gensokyo before it was sealed away. The natives are more magically adept than outsider humans, Youkai out number the humans vastly and have a lot of innate strength but humans are generally more powerful than the average Youkai.
>>Today, the normal Gensokyo human is probably a little more powerful than the average youkai, but the population of youkai greatly outnumbers humans. Most humans live in the Human Village, but a few live in other notable locations.
"Really?" Mokou looks definitely interested. "What are things like out there now? What's happened? Almost nobody comes through anymore. Out with it, kid!" You hadn't expected such a reaction from Mokou, but now that you think about it, she did come from out there... What, five hundred years or so ago.
"Give him a minute, Mokou! Oh, I didn't know, I apologize. We should probably find a way to get you back through-"
"Hey what is it like over there, huh, huh?! It has to be pretty awesome, you should take me to see it some time! But you have to stay here for now, ignore them, cuz you're my human, and I have to show you eeeverywhere~! This is so COOL, you are the best human EVER, really!" Cirno interrupts, and grabs you by the hand, jumping up and down.
[ ] "Woah, woah. Perhaps we should go to your house first, Keine? Might be easier to explain there."
[ ] "I would like to find a way home, but not yet."
[ ] "Yes, I'm looking for a way back."
[ ] "Yeah, I can't wait to see it all with you first." Ruffle Cirno's hair
>>5007 Can't say I blame them. Anon is clearly too much of a pussy to be able to hack it in Gensokyo. We've already gotten our ass repeatedly handed to us by an overgrown puddle, to say nothing of all the things that can actually TRY to kill us.
Maybe it's best to run home, taking nothing with us but humiliation and regret, the stench of failure flowing from every pore in our body.
This time i didn't vote. It's a bit unfair all the options make us leave China out of the explenation, plus- i want to be friendly with Keine, but Cirno&China are my fav's. there should have been a "I don't want to go back" option.
>>5010 Cirno hair ruffling may have been a good stall technique to stay with China, But, you'll have to wait for a more socially appropriate time to visit her again. Inc, I aggro'd a post. Mages on CC!
>>5014 I think we can make our intentions known in an explanation, assuming we can come to a consensus.
As for Meiling, I think we've exhausted our interactions for now. Mokou and Keine came to retreive us, and we should oblige. How would Meiling perceive it if we totally snubbed the people that came all the way to check on us to hit on her? Sure we're giving her attention, but we'll look like total assholes in the process, and don't think she won't notice.
Not that acting like an asshole isn't already our MO, though.
>>5027 Quite agreed. We've talked to everyone and activated every quest at the SDM we can at this point. Until we either complete some more or get enough time to pass for us to be called back again, we have no reason to be there and thus cannot advance things further.
Though, in this case instead of the townspeople just saying the same things over and over and over again, the townspeople get annoyed and decide to shank you.
... Morrowind... In reply... Damnit, they're catching on. Fuck, GO, MY BEAUTIFUL NORD TANK, KILL THEM ALL, WITH YOUR PRETTY, LONG BLOND HAIR! PROVE YOU ARE THE ONLY PERSON WITH A NON-SMASHED IN FACE~! Seriously though, people keep trying to talk to me, but the next post is being written.
Real men can take their women in a fight. Unfortunately, there isn't a single one we could ever hope to match here, especially if we have no magic potential. Enjoy being the woman in every relationship, anon.
>>5112 Leaving everything behind to become a hermit in the Bamboo Forest of Lost because her father was humiliated by her potential new mom... wait, she's an illegitimate child then and therefore wasn't allowed out in public?
Yeah, she should've lost all her interest in the outside world or perhaps wants to know if things worsened there.
Mokou grins. "See, and you'll have to tell me everything!"
"That might be kind of hard-" You're cut off as Mokou effortlessly floats off the ground. Jesus Christ, Gensokyo, WHY DOES EVERYTHING FLY? Nonetheless, she prepares to take off, while Cirno grabs you by the collar. Hell, even Keine is flying. "C'mon, let's go!" Cirno prepares to take off, but a few brief seconds delay gives you time to say parting words to the gatekeeper who looks relatively forlorn at all the visitors departing. Such idle chattering is probably rare for the Chinese youkai.
Meiling looks at you with a small smile. "I suppose we didn't get to meet for long Sir, and I know it wasn't too pleasant, but I apologize and hope you come again. It was nice to see you."
>>5154 Naive anon is naive. With women, you're either the one wearing the pants, or you're the one wearing the skirt. Women aren't going to respect a man who won't dominate them. You have to make it clear to them who the boss is.
>>5165 >With toehoes, you're either the one wearing the silly hat, or you're the one wearing the frilly dress. Toehoes aren't going to respect a mid boss. You have to make it clear to them who the boss is.
Mokous sudden interest. I think I know the answer to your question.
On our Earth there are many myths about such creatures... Mokou is a phoenix. She was on the earth some time ago... She only wants to know how things go on. Maybe there isn't any way to go back... Or so...
>>5170 No, the lake is the abusive partner who we know we need to keep the hell away from, but for some reason keep going back to for more abuse while fooling ourselves into believing we can change it for the better, and that it only hurts us like that when it's drunk.
You somehow manage not to say anything too stupid as you pass over the lake below. For some reason, you can't quite place it though, but you have a dread of that body of water. Perhaps it is the depth, perhaps it is how long it spans, but seriously, you wouldn't want to be dropped into it. Heh. You know, that reminds you...
The day before Jack was to marry Jill, Jack’s father told Jack of the story of his wedding night. On the wedding night, Jack’s father said to Jack’s mother, “Try on my pants.” Jack’s mother tried on the pants and said, “They’re too big.” “That’s right. I wear the pants in this relationship and from now on you should listen and do what I tell you,” replied Jack’s father. “From that night on, I haven’t had a single problem with your mother”, Jack’s father told Jack.
On his wedding night, Jack decided to put into practice what his father had told him. He took off his pants and gave them to Jill to try. “They’re to big, they don’t fit,” said Jill. “That’s right. I wear the pants in this relationship and from now on you should listen and do what I tell you,” Jack said to Jill, mirroring his father. Jill gave her pants to Jack and told him to try hers. “They’re too tight,” Jack said. Jill replied, “That’s right and unless you get rid of that attitude of yours, you won’t ever get in them.”
I have no AIM of GM, she said some posts before tutor in 30 mins or something. People say they got her aim or something, dunno whats true or not. Its hard to get in touch with GM. Someone who knows her, tell her dr dojin really wants to talk to her.
>>5329 Cirno's path is the strongest. Also, >>5324 That is extremely unhelpful, kind sir. If Yukari could manipulate the border between your personality and your being, and replace it with a more helpful one, that would be extremely useful.
Gah. I hate you all. nobody wants patchy. Just because she seems to hate you right now means nothing. the little demon's willing to help us, so WE NEED TO FIND THAT DAMN INHALER. There has to be one SOMEWHERE in gensokyo, if not, we need to raid moonland mansion for either medicine, or the 1200 yr old bitch with a bow'n'arrow.
>>5347 Hate? Hardly. She had at least enough sympathy for us to give us advice on how to survive our time with Flandre, and between her appreciation of helping thwart Marisa's attempted robbery and pity for our willingness to learn magic but complete lack of ability for it, gave us what is most certainly a valuable item to protect us.
I didn't mean that she hates us inactuality, per-se, but that seemed to be the opinion, at least from the vibes I got from people, of most of the people here. That and the fact that as soon as we were away from her, few seemed to have any, even in passing, interest in her.
In Pachy route, we have wild sex with her in the libary, knocking down books from the shelves while passionetly kissing and fondeling her, untill we come across a bed or a table, where we gently lay her down, and then stick it in
>>In Pachy route, we have wild sex with her in the libary, knocking down books from the shelves while passionetly kissing and fondeling her, untill we come across a bed or a table, where we gently lay her down, and then stick it in.
By the time we finish, we realize that she had died half-way through the deed. Somehow, that only makes us harder.
>>5381 Even if you find an inhaler there, the chance of it being able to help whatever illness Patchy has is remote. We would have to have a new one created that is specifically designed to treat the condition she has.
Now, where ever could we find someone with that kind of knowledge? I wonder, I wonder?
>>5386 Hence the attacking the Moon Mansion and either stealing medicine, or kidnapping the 1200 yr old bitch with a bow'n'arrow, or mayhaps finding some other way to trade. Maybe rabbit soup, or the veiled threat of.
Aside from the fact we have no offensive capabilities to speak of, and our only defense against youkai is useless against HAX and bullets, the fact of the matter is Anon's primary means of survival is our ability to be diplomatic and get others to not want to kill us. Both Sakuya and Koakuma attempted to kill us on sight on our first meetings with them, and yet when we finally left they both more or less liked us, if even a little bit.
If we want something from Eintei, all we have to do is work the old Dumbass charm, cook up the best damn eggs any of them have tasted in over a millenia, and not find some stupid way to get ourselves killed. Thankfully there are no lakes in the bamboo forest.
>>5386 In hundreds of years, Patchouli has not died of her illness. Who says she will soon - or even that she ever will? Finding her the inhaler is more of a special gift from us than our attempting to save her live.
>>5393 The Forest of Magic(魔法の森) is a focal point for all things evil, ominous, and repulsive. It's a place whose true nature is clouded by strange rumours and weird happenstance. Once you look beyond the human-eating plants and inevitable, horrible misfortune that will surely befall all who even think of trespassing into the forest, it's also a fairly nice place to live for people who don't like to be disturbed.
>>5404 I don't know about that. I think even "like" might be a bit too strong a word, but she at the very least appreciated the concern we showed for Patchy's condition enough to tell us a little more about it. Besides that, she also told us about Meiling waiting for us, and that we should go see her. Besides, Fladre lets herself out of the basement at will in this story, it seems.
Dumbass is heading in the right direction. Pushing for a single character is dumb, since the only way to survive long-term is to befriend ALL the touhoes. But to build a harem, you need a strong foundation.
The first step is taking semi-permanent residence in Keine's house. We wow her with our domestic skills (allowing her more time to put towards study), while further ingratiating ourselves by keeping Mokou coming over to hear tales of the outside. This would take but a few hours a day (less or more depending on Cirno's "help"), excuses can always be made to practice cooking in SDM or going to forest of magic, Yuka's garden, or youkai mountain to gather ingredients. The shrine can be visited on excuse of making donations, seeking a way home, or having a weapon (or skillet) blessed. Eientei can be excused by way of needing to get medicine.
Cirno of course must be entertained. ⑨ is our chariot, and conquers even Iskander with love.
Although a harem would be suitable for Anon, considering we will never have a converging opinion, it would never fit the characters, and GM has been following their personalities quite closely. We will have to choose eventually.

I do not think that would all be as easy as you make it sound. How willing would Keine be to put up someone in her house on anything past a temporary basis in general, nevermind if the "on-off relationship with a local shopkeeper" scenario comes to pass?

Aren't you forgetting something, Mr. Dumbass?
Here you are, stranded like a fish out of water in a primitive alien world. It's amazing you haven't grown sick of it in the 4 days you've been there, but you will be eventually. After all, the damage has been done. It may be a week from now, maybe longer, but soon you'll have an insatiable urge to scurry away to answer the call.
The call of the Internet, Mr. Dumbass.
And then everything will come crashing down on your head. You'll try to seek out an internet connection, but the only one in Gensokyo belongs to Kaguya, and she'll never let you use it(She IS a NEET, after all). You may get a sizable harem, but no amount of women will ever fill that growing hole in your heart. You will despair, and when you claw away at the invisible walls of that world you built for yourself, trying to find a means of escape, I'll be there to say "I told you so."
Acting if it's temporary is fine. With Mokou probably living in a hut and Cirno living in fairyland, living there temporarily is the logical conclusion. We just need her to fall in love with us (or at least realize we're worth more than the food we eat) before she wants to kick us out. Remember, due to our part time job, we may even be able to pay her for room & boarding.
And if she has reservations about letting us stay in the first place, tell her that maybe staying in one of SDM's guest rooms would be okay. Watch her sputter and backpedal.
We'll have to deal with the shopkeeper issue when it arises.
>>5420 You misunderesitmate anonymous foolish antispiral!
we use the internet to fill the gaping hole in our life! But the internet is like pissing on a forest fire, the only way for anon to truly fulfill him self is to know the love of a woman (or seven) and finally become human.
Paradoxically this also put the end to our existence as true anonymous however.
Holy shit, anon is Frankenstein's monster. Searching for our lost humanity and what not.
>>And we will NEVER abandon the quest for cotton tail! No so long as I'm around.
Hence why the harem route is the only one that could satisfy all parts of Anon, despite it being the only one that is all but guaranteed to disappoint everyone. We shall attempt to take everything, and in the end obtain nothing.
>>5456 Yuyuko NEVER induces death if not undoubtably needed, NEVER does it for personal gain, out of anger/bordome/for the lulz. She is very easygoing and friendly, yet very responsible when needed. If we don't make any fatal stupid mistake like saying something like "I have come here with the intention of killing Youmu, raping Myon and destroying the Saigyou Akashi along with it's seal", we should be perfectly fine and even welcome.
>>If we don't make any fatal stupid mistake like saying something like "I have come here with the intention of killing Youmu, raping Myon and destroying the Saigyou Akashi along with it's seal", we should be perfectly fine and even welcome.
Anon, NOT say/do something stupidly and blatantly suicidal? Why don't you tell us not to breathe anymore while you're at it?
>>5468 The part-time job is when Remilia decides to hold an event at the mansion and needs us to come cook. She will send word when that happens, and Anon will have to report back to the mansion.
As for how well we were doing, you do realize that we would have died at least twice by Flandre because of something stupid we said, and only survived because of the timely intervention of Sakuya and Remilia, right?
>>5460 You've got a point, which means all we have to worry about is her OM NOM NOMing on our penis, in the bad way.
"You hear the ghost girl mumble something, you think it may have been 'I'm hungry,' but you can't really tell as her mouth is... well... otherwise occupied. [ ] 'Hold on, I'll get you something.' pull out of her mouth and make her some eggs. [ ] Thrust faster, saying 'Wait a sec, I've got something coming up for you. It's not food, but it has protein... or something.'"
65-75% amino acids, citrate, enzymes, flavins, fructose (the main energy source of sperm cells, which rely entirely on sugars from the seminal plasma for energy), phosphorylcholine, prostaglandins (involved in suppressing an immune response by the female against the foreign semen), proteins, vitamin C
While we've got some time for idol discussion I've been wondering, how does Keine's personality compare between her normal and were forms? Any changes or is she pretty much her self? I've not played the relevant game yet I guess.
>>5480 Keine is pretty much always herself, no matter what form she is in. The main difference is that, due to her power to "create" history only being active while in hakutaku-mode, she has to spend that night recording EVERYTHING that has happened since the previous full moon. Much like anyone pulling an all-nighter on a very tight deadline, she naturally becomes somewhat edgier and more irritable during this time, and will head-butt anyone who disturbs or annoys her while she's working.
That's right, Anon. The continue is here. It has been here all along. Maybe you noticed it during one of the numerous times you were drowning and freezing and dying.
Why don't you come in and see for yourself. It's right here. You just have to grab it and it's yours. While you're down there, why not have some of this cake or pie that I just baked? It would be like our own little party, down here. In the lake.
>>5444 I think at this point the Yakumo (Yukari, Ran, Chen), Hakugyokurou (Yuyuko and Youmu), and possibly Hakurei (Reimu and Suika, plus increased chances for Marisa, Yukari, and Aya) route branches are pretty much closed off.
>>5493 well, it's unlikely any direct purebred Fujiwara descendant remains after all these years, and besides, she should expect that no one she knows is alive anymore anyways (well, except for the NEET)
no need to go research it, but do so if you wish, anon.
>>I think at this point the Yakumo (Yukari, Ran, Chen), Hakugyokurou (Yuyuko and Youmu), and possibly Hakurei (Reimu and Suika, plus increased chances for Marisa, Yukari, and Aya) route branches are pretty much closed off.
Well, it's not like we can't still go and meet them all, possibly even befriend a couple of them. I wouldn't suggest trying to get another job cooking eggs, though, and don't even THINK about trying to romance any of them.
We've got enough on our plate with Cirno, Keine, Mokou, the entire SDM, and possibly Eientei as it is. Let's not spread ourselves too thin, here.
>>5493 >>5501 Let's see--I don't understand Japanese, and the English Wikipedia is kind of skimpy, but from what I can tell--
During the 13th century, the Fujiwara northern house (Hokke) was split into the five regent houses: Konoe, Takatsukasa, Kujou, Nijou and Ichijō. From what I can tell, there aren't any direct descendants left, with the exception of the Konoe. And maybe the Kujou. I dunno. Red-linked. There were Kujou as recently as 1951, I can say that for certain, since Empress Teimei was one.
The Konoe, on the other hand, are definitely still there--they still have a family head and everything, in the form of Konoe Tadateru, who's begat Konoe Tadahiro, who's begat Konoe Something. Tada-something. I don't know?
>>5532 Well, yeah. But if we had gotten killed this time, it would have been because we either told everyone Sakuya pads (which would raise the question as to HOW Anon came to know that bit of info) or attempting to get Cirno to call us "Nii-nii".
That, and getting SO CLOSE to escaping the lake only to find ourselves plunging once again into its murky depths would be a rather appropriate continuation of Anon's failures.
I do, but when you go to quote it reloads everything anyways. Then you'll say "Well, do it manually." and thats fine and all, but out of reflex from years of doing so I still click the post number and by the time I realize that it's too late.
Clearly you must boost the difficulty all the way to Lunatic. The drastic increase in difficulty will be like training in five hundred times Earth's gravity, thus allowing her to raise her power levels dramatically in a short period of time.
>>5539 don't forget, she may know of whats happened in Japan 500 to 1200 years ago but she probably has very little knowledge about what was happening and what has happened in the past to the rest of the world. She might be interested in Roman, Greek, Middle Age, European, etc. history.
>>5575 That won't do! That won't do at all! Like a lion throwing his cubs down a cliff and chucking boulders down at them as they try to scramble up, children must be toughened up through extreme adversity!
One cannot survive with such weak bullet-dodging skills in this day and age!
Before you get the chance to reply you find that you've become intimate friends with a small blue sphere of danmaku as it meets with your face. Damn. And that was your last life too. Stupid mid-bosses.
>>5644 I talked to retards about their broken phones for 9 hours straight. this is funnier because I work in corporate, so the retards think they are important and worth something. its a sad day when a season has to take a job to make ends meet. I also tried to make it to these boards on my cell phone but its cheap so it didn't work.
But enought about my shitty day! Tell me. Did you enjoy the weather today? also, how was your day?
>>5653 Also, that tee-hee was meant to be a silly-girly laugh, signifying mild amusement without any loss of respect for said fact. Going to bed at 10:00 is extremely responsible. But tee-hee nevertheless.
>>5663 Well, there is an initiative I can fully support! Why its certainly not creepy at all and in no way reminds me of all the yandere characters moments before they snap. why this is perfectly healthy and I will not be looking over my shoulder every five minutes until this passes.
>>5665 How about the implications that Keine wants to send us home?
>>5666 >>How about the implications that Keine wants to send us home?
Well, if she cares about our safety, then clearly that would be the best thing for us. Especially since she now thinks our idea of "giving her some space" is to waltz straight into near-certain death.
Funny thing is, getting her to fall for us might not dissuade her from that line of thought, and in fact may even strengthen her belief that we need to go home. If she doesn't want to see a relative stranger die a horrible death, I can't imagine she would want to risk it for someone she actually loves.
>>5679 If she has a complex about her hakutaku-side in a place where there are far stranger things roaming about, just how willing would she be to go out into a strange new world devoid of those things?
and anon never thinks anything out. he kicks reason to the curb, belives in the you who belives in me, and is the bone of his skillet. if he wanted Kiene in the real world, he'd just do it and fuck the concequenses. in fact, I half expect anon is here to bring down the border.
Keine is a worry-wart, not bull-headed (without the full moon anyway), so expect more passive things like her visiting the shrine to find a way to send you back, putting sedatives in your sake, or finding other ways to keep you occupied and out of danger. We'll need to convince her that whenever we go off to do something stupid, that it's really the safest course of action.
Importantly, Mokou would put in words in favor of our staying if we keep her entertained with outsider's stories. And I'm sure in Keine's mind, Mokou opening up to us would be a very positive thing.
>>5702 Yeah, Mokou is definitely the one we need more than anyone to have on our side if we hope to influence Keine to keep us around. And wouldn't you know, it looks like we're heading right into a prime time to get buddy-buddy with her.
It will be nice spending some time with someone who doesn't want to kill us from the get-go for a change.
>>5732 >>5734 On one hand, that tactic would allow us to go for a GOOD END with Mokou, or if you feel like breaking the poor girl's heart after being with her through all of that (and I don't doubt some Anon would do so, the bastards), then with one of the other longer-lived characters as well.
The only problem is, you not only have to get Kaguya incapacitated enough to allow you to do the deed, but you have to do something about her backup. Eirin, Reisen, and even Tewi probably wouldn't sit idly by while you gut their princess and eat her organs. EX-Keine got in the way during their last fight, and was battered, bruised, and knocked unconscious. I doubt Anon would fare much better.
In this case, neither diplomacy nor brute force stand out as being easier than the other. But, then again, nothing worth having is ever easy to get.
>>How come Mokou couldn't just "donate" a liver for us if it comes down to a route with her? It's not like she doesn't grow spares when she dies.
Maybe it doesn't quite work that way. The liver gives immortality to the person who eats it because that is where the elixir is stored after the immortal drank it. But, if we assume a person only remains immortal as long as the elixir remains in their body, and specifically their liver, then wouldn't removing that liver essentially remove the thing that is keeping that person immortal?
Or maybe it DOES work that way. This is one of those things that really isn't explained all that well, I think.
In either case, would we really be able to stand doing that to someone we care about? Then again, how can you say you love someone if you won't eat her liver? Either way, if she cares enough about Anon to go through the excruciatingly painful process of tearing out her own liver for us, then we had DAMN WELL be ready to commit. There will be no waffling, no indecisiveness, and absolutely NO TAKE-BACKSIES.
Screw up and break her heart, and don't think for a second we won't be finding out first-hand everything she knows about pain and suffering but not being able to die. Though that might open the door to epic three-way hatesex with her and Kaguya, more likely it will result in her tying us to a large rock and dumping our now-immortal asses into the lake.
I believe it's explained at one point that the Elixir has a direct effect on your soul. Even in the event that your entire body is destroyed, leaving no trace, your soul will simply float around for a while and then generate a new body for you. You're basically preserved exactly as you were when you drank the Elixir.
Which means that drinking the Elixir turns you into an Elixir factory; no many how many times your liver is torn out, you'll just grow a new one, still holding the Elixir.
