you move down the hallway to the room immediately to the right of the
room you were just in. You open the door, stride boldy inside, and
close the door behind you. You realize this was quite a bad idea, given
that there's no lights in the room, and it's now pitch black. you feel
around on the walls for a light switch or something before you realize,
This is essentially Feudal japan. There's no electricity here. So
THAT'S what was bugging you about that icebox. Feeling around on the
walls has lead you away from the door, so you have no idea where you
are in the room.
[ ] Continue groping the walls.
[ ] Call for help.
[ ] Wander into the center of the room.
[ ] Scream.
You continue to grope along the walls. You feel nothing but the smooth
wood of the walls. You find a corner and continue following the wall
around. Eventually you'll come to the door again, right?
You feel around and go around one... two... three... four... five?
FIVE? Five corners. I think it can effectively be said that you're
going in circles now.
[ ] Continue following the walls. You'll get somewhere eventually.
[ ] Go out into the middle of the room.
[ ] Panic.
[ ] Shout for help.
Pushing off from one of the corners, you walk directly into
the middle of the room. Or at least what SHOULD be the middle of the
room. As you walk forward, your feet suddenly connect with nothing and
you start tumbling, head first, into the black oblivion. You hear a
light laugh float past you.
"I think it's time you went somewhere else."
Suddenly something zooms up beneath you. Oh look it's the ground. You hit the ground with a resounding thud.
When you finally come to, night has fallen. You seem to be in the
middle of some sort of field, as there are giant sunflowers surrounding
you on all sides. It's dark, it's night, and you're alone. Somehow the
camera survived the fall, your cellphone? Not so lucky. You also seem
to be light one set of blueprints. Damnit, those weren't easy to come
[ ] Shout for help.
[ ] Look around.
[ ] Call for Cirno.
[ ] Call for Rumia.
[ ] Curl into the fetal position and shiver.
I suspect we will attract Yuuka instead. But if we can convince
Rumia not to eat us, we might be able to endear ourselves to Yuuka. If
we do attract Cirno and Rumia, then we've our adorable little sisters,
Looking around you see two things. Sunflowers and dark. Lots and lots
of both. There really isn't too much else to see, well besides that
girl over there. Wait, what? You look back and where there had been a
girl a moment ago, you see nothing. A slight wind picks up causing the sunflowers to ruffle around.
You think you hear something moving nearby, but you can't be sure over
the sound of the sunflowers.
[ ] Call out to the person who was there
[ ] Remain silent, do nothing.
[ ] CIRNO! RUMIA! TASUKETTE!
[ ] Curl up in the fetal position.
[ ] Pick a direction and run your goddamn ass off.
You call out for the person who was there a moment ago. You hear a
faint clacking as a short blonde girl with a red ribbon tied in her
hair steps out from the sunflowers. She gently brushes her hands over
her red skirt. She is joined, momentairaly by a small floating doll of
[ ] Greet the girl.
[ ] Pick a direction and run your ass off.
[ ] Scream.
[ ] Call For Rumia/Cirno.
[ ] GOD DAMN IT YUKARI.
You look up to the sky, filled with a consumate rage and scream "GOD DAMN IT YUKARI"
The girl in front of you seems to be taken aback at your sudden
outburst. She takes a step backwards, and tilts her head to one side. Taking a deep breath, you calm yourself. Now what anon, now what?
[ ] pick a direction and run your ass off.
[ ] Call for Cirno/Rumia
[ ] Address the girl.
[ ] Take a picture of the girl.
As medicine approaches, you pull the camera up slowly. Waiting until
the miasma is almost uppon you, You snap a picture. The flash goes off
and Medicine cries out suddenly, then falls backwards on the ground.
The camera whirs for a moment, whines, and then falls silent. You feel
slightly strange, and it looks like there's a strange haze in the air
for a moment. The camera then spits out a a picture with an A printed
in the corner. You suddenly now feel like you could do 25% more damage
to medicine if you were to attack her.
Medicine lies unconscious on the ground, There also seems to be a path through the sunflowers that you didn't see before.
[ ] Grope Medicine.
[ ] Get your sorry ass out of there.
[ ] Take another picture
[ ] Steal her little floaty doll.
>>7951 >>7952 Oh shit.
Enraptured by the perils of an ordinary person being dropped into
the maw of the beast known as Gensokyo, Anonymous forgets that his
torrent of Kaiji finished an hour ago! Will he overcome this despair
and work up the strength needed to open up his media player?! ZAWA ZAWA
Ok. Back. Sorry about that. dinner burned, called for take out, friend
got off shift and delivered food, they got drunk, and I ended up having
to chase 4 drunk bastards out of my house. Not a fun evening. Post
You decide that you're gonna get while the gettin's good. Running along
down the path you eventually come out of the sunflowers into a large
open field. It opens out in just about every direction 'cept back into
the sunflower field. Goddamn you REALLY gotta get a map. You can't make
out any discernable landmarks in this darkness, and there doesn't seem
to be anything of interest here.
[ ] Call out for Cirno/Rumia
[ ] Continue running.
[ ] Walk across the field
[ ] GOD DAMN IT YUKARI.
You cry out in anguish to the heavens again. "GOD DAMN IT YUKARI!"
Once again, nothing happens but you do feel quite a bit better. Off
in the distance you think you see some flickering lights. You think you
hear a giggle come from somewhere far above.
[ ] head towards the light.
[ ] Head away from the lights.
[ ] Go to sleep.
[ ] Grab a rock and throw it into the sky.
An incredible feeling of rage rushes over you. You can't stand
these people anymore. If you chase them off they're only going to
pester you again. Sitting and tolerating them is not an option. So
there's only one thing left to do.
Returning briefly to your room, you emerge holding an aluminum bat
and wearing a grin that would bring a lesser man to shit themself on
the spot. But those bastards are too buzzed to notice what you're going
to do. Creeping up behind them as they sit on the living room couch,
you bring your trusty bat up, and then down...
A long time has passed. You weren't counting how long you've been
beating away at these miserable piles of blood and pulp, and you
couldn't care less. "Am I insane? What's gotten over me?" you think to
yourself. But that only happened for a moment. It isn't fun to pound on
these carcasses anymore.
No, there's still one more thing in this room that you can kill.
Cackling maniacally, you bring your hands to your own throat, and claw it to shreds.
You head off towards the lights. They're really the only landmark that
you can see in this area. As you get closer, you notice that there are
quite a few fireflies in this area. You climb over a small stream and
approach where the lights seem to be the strongest. You see someone
sitting on a giant rock, with insects swirling all around them. It
looks like it might be a young boy, but you can't quite tell from this
[ ] Call out to the person.
[ ] Move away quietly.
[ ] Throw a rock at them.
[ ] Take a picture.
[ ] Yell loudly.
You call out to the person sitting on the rock, in a calm clear voice.
They look up, seemingly unsurprised by your approach. They stand up and
hop down from the rock, the lightshow still going on. They call out to
"Do you like the show?"
You nod your head, and add that it is quite an elegant display.
A wry smile appears on the person's face. "I'm glad you think so. I like to give people a pretty display before I kill them."
They raise thier hand above thier head and the insects swarm into a
dark ball above them. They drop thier hand forward and several swarms
of insects shoot off from the ball, directly at you.
[ ] Try to dodge.
[ ] Stand your ground.
[ ] Hit the deck.
[ ] Flee.
That guy anon, eh stands his ground against insect swarms and
doesn't afraid of anything. The insects drive directly towards you, at
breakneck speed, only to break away a the last second. You stand there
unflinching, nearly yelling something out, but you manage to keep it to
your self. Wriggle seems shocked by the fact that you just stood there.
"You're quite brave for a human! Most people would either try to
dodge my insects, or run away. I think I like you. My name's Wriggle.
Wriggle Nightbug. Pleasure to meet ya."
[ ] Ask Wriggle if she knows where Cirno or Rumia are.
[ ] Ask Wriggle just where in the Gensokyo we're at.
[ ] Ruffle Wriggle's hair.
[ ] This option doesn't matter, ruffle's gonna win.
Wriggle tilts her head to the side.
"Cirno and Rumia? I saw them earlier today. They were aparently
looking for some Human of theirs that went missing. That was hours ago
though... I do have a fairly good idea of where they went though... Do
you want me to take you?"
Wriggle nods difinitively.
"Alright. Follow me!" Wriggle pushes off from the ground and starts
off into the air, before stopping and turning to look back at you. "Well? What are you waiting for? Come on."
You just look up at her. Well, at least it's not a lake in that sky.
"Oh wait, that's right, most humans can't fly, can they. Oh well, I'll stay close to the ground. Walking makes me too tired."
Wriggle floats down closer to the ground and starts flying off.
[ ] Offer to carry her.
[ ] Follow behind as quickly as you can.
[ ] Ask her to carry you.
>>8094 It's implied that she'd wait for you, given, ya'kno that she's leading you.
You call after wriggle and offer to carry her so that the two of
you can move along at a more leasurely pace. Wriggle's face turns
bright red at this suggestion.
"Wh.. wh... wha... what are you saying! I hardly know you! I mean,
I think you're a nice guy and all... but I don't even know you!" She steeples her fingers and stares at them intently, blushing a deeper red than before.
[ ] Insist that it's alright.
[ ] Tell her to forget you said anything.
[ ] Ruffle her hair.
[ ] Take a picture.
You reach out and ruffle Wriggle's hair while she's distracted by her
fingers. She turns an even brighter red, and you swear you just saw
steam come out her ears. "Ah.. Ah..."
Wriggle wavers back and forth a little bit before falling down onto
the ground. Her eyes appearing as little sprials with a huge grin on
her face. Her smile twitches slightly. You sigh. This wasn't what you
intended, but it really was quite cute. Moving carefully, you lift her
up on your back, and proceed in the direction the two of you had been
heading. After walking in this direction for a few minutes, a couple of
lightning bugs flit in front of you, before flying off in a different
direction. They return a few moments later, and fly off in the same
direction again. Huh. Maybe they're trying to tell you something.
[ ] Follow the lighting bugs.
[ ] Ignore the lightning bugs.
[ ] Turn around and go back the way you came.
[ ] Try to wake Wriggle up.
The two lightning bugs dance and flit in front of you.
Figuring that they must be some of Wriggle's little friends, you decide
to follow them. When the pair see that you're actually following them,
they fly on ahead, staying a steady distance ahead of you. They seem to
turn and twist and curve around across the field, but you don't seem to
be going in circles. Every so often another lightning bug, or a pair of
them, will fly up to the pair leading you.
After doing this for quite some time, You see the forest off in
the distance. You feel strangely relieved to see something besides the
miles of emptynes that surrounded you while you were on the field. The
two fireflies fly up to the edge of the woods and hover there, not
going inside the woods. Wriggle seems to be coming to on your back.
[ ] Call out for Rumia and Cirno
[ ] Sride forth into the woods.
[ ] Look around for a path into the woods.
[ ] Put Wriggle down, and then plan your next move.
>>8145 And lost your hand for your troubles. Poison doll is POISONOUS. All
of her. Plus, she's not really the befriendable type. You'd have to go
BEYOND befriending the shit out of her, to actively neutralizing any
and all poisons that she can produce.
You call out in a loud clear voice for both Rumia and
Cirno. You do this several times, then listen carefuly to see if you
can hear anything. Several moments pass, and you hear nothing. You look
around, and thing about calling out again, but a slight chill overtakes
you. You look around and see a shadowy figure standing nearby on the
edge of the woods. The fireflies quickly fly away into the darkness,
and you're rapidly wishing you could do the same. The figure seems to
know that you're here, and shouting your head off probally didn't help
in that regard.
[ ] Greet the person.
[ ] Quick, into the woods.
[ ] Scream.
[ ] Try to wake wriggle.
"Shut up. It's your fault that I'm out here at this time of night.
What exactly is it that you think you're doing. Especially with that."
The figure motions to Wriggle.
"You're making quite a mess of things here. Really, what do you think you're doing."
[ ] Remain silent.
[ ] I'm not doing anything wrong.
[ ] Quickly! into the woods!
[ ] Reach for the camera.
>>8170 But how are we supposed to get Medicine to Eintei when just being near her would slowly sap our strength and kill us?
We need basic protection first, THEN we can bring her to Eirin for
further study. A sort of "I'll scratch your back if you poison-proof
mine" kind of deal.
