[x] “...Still, as a courier you should just run past her, you’re not getting paid to fight.”
- [x] "But if push comes to shove, a spell card fight is how things are done in Gensokyo" explain the rules.

“I can crawl along these caves faster than you can run, you know!” Yamame calls out, “I didn’t do it this time, but I can also set up my webs to slow you down if I want to! There’s also diseases…actually, you don’t need to know about that.”

“Well, fight it is then.” You shrug, “Ian, want me to explain the spell card rules for you?”

“Please do so.” He’s already shuffled off the pack and is settling into a battle stance. He’s not manifesting his sword though, strange.

“Rule number one of a spell card fight, you must give names and meanings to your attack sequences that you will use as a sort of…video game boss pattern? That’s the best comparison I can make. For us, these attack sequences are usually patterns of magical bullets, but I expect outsiders to have their own techniques. However…technically you don’t have to do this if you’re okay with being on the defensive the whole fight.”

“I have some names for my attacks, and they are far more unsightly than patterns of magical bullets, but they can deal with airborne opponents.”

With a deep inhale, he furrows his brow as his arms melt away into a stream of black ink, before swiftly reforming into something significantly more threatening. Something metallic, and colored ivory and gold. You clap as the massive claws emerge from the ink, bound to his normal body by chains.

“Now that is a dueling worthy apparatus for a human!” You praise, “You’ll fit right in here in Gensokyo.”

“What.” Again, that weird typewriter effect is echoing like a bass line in his voice, “You don’t find this…hideous?”

“Why would I? There’s a monk up on the surface who controls a ‘nyuudou’, which is a massive cloud giant’s head and arms, and probably fights the same way as you with giant hands. And Yamame, mind showing him your lower body?”

With a grin, the earth spider leaps upward to the cave ceiling. Her

This is a somewhat different sort of story that I've been planning for some time. Comments, discussion, feedback of any sort and—of course—votes are appreciated. Activity certainly motivates, helps the story continue at a good pace and enriches the experience for fellow readers. I hope we both enjoy the journey.

I'll get to writing sometime "soon" when things settle down on my end a little. I'm breaking the tie by picking stuff from your posts/comments that I like and find relevant and that also makes sense for the update. I think that's better than an all-or-nothing coinflip in this case.

Content Warning: Vague mentions of cruel or weird manner alongside the risk of being burned as fuel.



Hot, it is hot.

Very hot even!

That's the first thing that registers in your mind.

An unwelcome heat has spread through your body, one that cannot have been made by the humble sheets you usually dwell in nor the ever so intolerant rays of the sun since you always sleep in away from the window in your house.

Soon after, a second sensation comes: Coldness. Your body is covered from top to bottom inside some pile of coldness. You're not sure how it's possibly for your surroundings to be hot and cold at the same time yet it is, quite the odd thing.

Finally smell joins the fray, to your regret that is as a putrid smell assaults your nose and wakes you up faster than being showered in cold water ever would. Coincidentally this gesture makes you open your eyes, upon which you see the following things before you:

Nothing, you don't see anything. It's either too dark or you're going to need some glasses soon.

Either way the very comforting darkness says hello to you, you'd sigh at the uselessness of your visual tools but sadly you cringe instead as a feeling of immense weight is over you. One that could be compared to having a tree on your back, if the tree was stiff yet somehow moisty to the touch which in a way is very disgusting and oh god you hate it.

Now, not to come off as assuming but in most situations where one finds themselves in a dark, cold, and heavy place it'd be safe to assume that one has been snowed in. Problem is the smell of this place alongside the fact that you do not remember it being winter could mean that you've been thrust into a situation that one could consider very bad.

So of course it hasn't, cause if you're inside what you think you are. You'd be already dead now wouldn't you?

You try to remember anything that could be a clue on how you got into this but find nothing more than very vague memories of a very hard party. The hammers constantly pounding nails in your head and the lack of your pants add

[X] Just eat the fruits you bought while chatting

You reach into your pack for a pear. Taking a bite, you find it refreshingly cold and juicy, just what you need right now.

>puppetMaster204: Hey, Mizuhashi, what do you do for fun outside of painting? Being in the boonies and all.

“Um, normal human things.” You say as you take another bite out of the pear, “I socialize at bars, talk to people crossing the bridge and...play video games.”

>Yujin444: what’s your favorite band?

“The Prismrivers.” You say the name of the only named musical group you can remember, “They’re pretty obscure. They only have a presence over here where I’m living. I know none of you would’ve heard about them.”

>I_Am_Fire: I personally like Mili the most, you heard of them?

With deft fingers at an angle where chat can’t see you, you do a quick Google search. “Yeah, I really like uh...Iron Lotus.”

>I_Am_Fire: Oh! That’s my song

>I_Am_Fire: *my favorite song

>SandwichEnthusiast: do you take commissions, Mizuhashi? I really enjoy your style.

You consider that option for a few moments, and decide that more money is always nice, even if you can’t spend it right now. “Sure, I’ll put up the prices on my channel soon. What are you looking for?”

>SandwichEnthusiast: my wife’s expecting soon, so something warm and comfortable for the nursery

A sudden spike of your own jealousy strikes you, making you seize up enough to chomp right through the core of the pear you’re eating. Married people watch your stream? Didn’t Twitch’s own stats say that people on here are mostly young adolescent human males still wet behind the ears?

“...Sure, I can do something like that.” You physically swallow your jealousy, incarnated in the flesh and seeds of the p

Cute Yamame

We should emphasize that the spell card rules are non lethal and actually very helpful in keeping things very peaceful. It also gives weaker people a fighting chance at surviving. Very humane and merciful. Specifically created so there aren't any deaths.

Traditional CYOA. Short, un-proofread updates. Probably going to hit a dead-end very fast. May or may not be a horror story. Go go go.

=========

You yawn and wake up from your bed, brushing aside traces of your blond hair from your eyes. Staring at the arched ceiling, a necessary consequence of your house being under a bridge, you stretch a few times before getting up.

Brushing your teeth, you look at your own green eyes in the mirror. What a sorry sight. Few people have passed over the bridge, and the oni you usually hang out with have disappeared from your social radar, citing “work”, as if those youkai would ever let things like jobs get in the way of their drinking. Spitting out the water, you get the feeling that you might be forgetting something as well...

Oh right, your package! You open your front door and there it is, the cardboard box bearing sigils of the gap youkai. Excited, you tear apart the box and retrieve the object within, a large, flat entity that reminds you of a slate. It is smooth and black, a pleasant sight, as you paid a pretty hefty amount of money to Mayohiga for this to be modified.

It is a “laptop computer”, a complicated Outside World device. Yukari has tampered with its components to A: Function off of Old Hell’s nuclear-fueled power grid, and B: Tap in to “networks” outside of Gensokyo. There’s a large note attached to the computer which warns you that the latter modification is highly experimental, and may produce local environmental side-effects similar to the border weakenings in Muenzuka.

You brush off these concerns. The computer offers you an unprecedented opportunity, for it has access to the “internet”, which apparently lets you communicate with humans all over the Outside World. You can talk with an infinite amount of people, probing them and extracting their weaknesses. Then, you can manipulate them, turning them against each other, and breed the most delicious of emotions: jealousy, the fuel that sustains your existence. In fact, given the amount of people on this “internet”, you might not even have to do anything, and just feed off of the jealousy that humans naturally produce when interactin

I'm quite pleased this ended on a good note, yet disappointed there couldn't be more. That is the thing about endings isn't it?

I think you've set the gold standard for characterization when it comes to Yamame. I've never seen it done better. Her thoughts and interactions with Paran were consistently entertaining and interesting.

I think that could also apply to your writing of youkai in general. You do a real good job of writing them as distinct from humans without venturing into the realm of cliche. It's really enjoyable to read.

I do hope you'll feel up to writing some more in the future. I would be interested in something about Kagerou if you go that route. I like her character design but I've never read anything where she was a central figure. Also I find myself more interested in the youkai that live in the human village and what potential issues might arise from that.

(Tindeck's dead, baby. Let me know if there are issues with this new site.)


[℧] Ought to live the lie. Talks like it seems she should.


The area around and next to me is full of free and open seats—to me, it's a buffer zone. To them, it's keeping a safe distance <kinda the same thing isnt it>. No. There's definitely a difference <well in perspective maybe but tha>. It doesn't matter. There's space between me and the other people, and it's working out well for all of us. Of course, it also makes very obvious where the onje in the room is to anyone who's walking through.

Like Honne.

Well, that's fine, too. It isn't the first curveball I've been thrown, and I'd bet all the yen in Japan that it won't be the last. Stupid Makai.

I give Honne a polite look—neutral, don't smile; but don't look dead. "Not at all. Please, do." I knew Kana-mama's posture lessons were going to be put to use in ceremonies, but until an hour or so ago, I didn't really expect I'd ever use them outside of that <and photos>. That's true.

[Hmm~ Kinda macademia-y and licorice-y. The other colors are different flavors, right?]

"Much obliged, miss." Honne sets down a large satchel and takes the chair beside mine. "Good to see a familiar face here." <what>. She can't. She can't, right?

With a tilt of the head, I affect a look of confusion. "Oh. Have we have met before?" It's a weak deflection, but what else is there to say? I hope I'm not sweating <well i did just call it with the curveball thing>?

"No, nothin' like that. Just sayin', a human face is a lot more familiar than anything these muppets're sportin', y'

So here it is. I said I was preparing to write something, and, well, it's happened. I haven't written much in at least three years, and this format in longer, so it might be a bit rough, so just bear with me. If you have any feedback, I'm here to listen to my audience, too.

With all that said - Let's begin.



NIGHT 1

It’s dark. A shivering, swallowing, oppressive darkness. Not a darkness of the world, but of knowing there is a world and being unable to see it. My other senses report back to me, letting me know that I’m not alone. A soft voice – not speaking to me, but making noises to itself. A soft touch, the fluffiness of pillows and the delicacy of thin fingers that work across my face.

“ ––––––, wake up.” The voice calls to me. “I’m almost done, so you should wake up.” I hear a ‘word’, but I can’t understand it. I know it has to be my name, it just feels like it. How does one even describe the sensation of hearing their own name? But that means I need to wake up. Am I even asleep? Or was I already awake? Were my eyes closed in slumber, or incomplete, like me? I move my mouth a little to reply, but I can’t understand what comes out.

...This is pointless. I need to wake up. Pushing those that thought to the forefront, and willing my sight to return, I start to move…




...my eyes open, and my senses correct themselves. Neither the softness of the bed, the pillows, nor Her fingers remain, and I’m left with the familiar sight of the blood-red sky. There’s no helping it, so I pull myself up off the ground, and try and take stock of my situation.

I’m on the ground. Outdoors, too. That much is obvious, but I have to start with the basics, and leave the questions for later. Even as my mind starts running through all the things I want to ask, like ‘how did I get here’ and ‘why was I sleeping outside’. The scenery isn’t itself familiar to me, but I feel like I’ve lived my life underneath this sky, so I’m not in some totally strange place. I might be able to orient myself toward home from here.
