For as long as she could remember, Orin had been good at handling people. Dead people. All of whom she would handle straight into the Hell of Blazing Fires. That was what she did. It was her job. Her history was long and storied, and the vast majority of those stories involved corpses, fires, and the subsequent combination of the two. Those two things were the tools of her trade.

She was not sure what to do when all she had was one. Other than feel awkward.

"Hi there, little guy."

The small child she held aloft over her head made no reply, simply dangling there in his too-large clothes, his dark eyes staring at her from behind the messy tangle of his dark hair. Small beads of sweat rolled down her pale skin as she felt the gentle rise and fall of his chest beneath her fingers. Her vibrant red hair began to fritz, slowly unraveling one of her twin braids as her large, black, feline ears began to droop. Gradually it occurred to her that, in accidentally dragging a living person down to Hell and nearly tossing him into a flaming pit, she might have been a bad girl.

She whimpered a little. She had to make sure Satori didn't find out!

"Hey," she stuttered, smiling weakly at the little boy. "You must be a tough little guy, so I bet you'll be okay while I figure out what to do with you, right?"

The boy stared into her dark red eyes. She stared into his. His breathing stayed calm. She heaved a sigh of relief.

Then she nearly fumbled him right into the pit as he burst out crying.

Instinctively she pulled him close before he could fall, and jumped back from the pit, falling flat on her ass. A string of vague nonsense and pleas for him to be quiet poured from her mouth, but she had only the barest idea of what she was saying, only the barest idea of what to do. Panic surged within her. She didn't know what to do with a child! Not a living one! She needed help! She needed... she needed...

"Master Satori! Help!"

Tears welled up in her eyes, and she began to cry as she ran toward the Palace of the Earth Spirits, leaving the burning flames in the belly of the underground far behind.

Kindred Inalterable Dependency

---

Comfy. Dark. Peaceful. Warm. Being in bed sure is wonderful.

"... wake up."

The soft sound of Mama Orin whispering into your ear wakes you up as it does every morning, and you try to hide your giggle, scrunching your eyes shut tighter, and snuggling up to Mama Okuu even closer than before. She hugs you tight, too, even in her sleep! Mama Okuu is always so huggy, it's so nice!

"Come on, little guy. Up and at 'em."

Mama Orin cuddles up behind you, squishing you up against Mama Okuu. Mama Orin isn't as soft as Mama Okuu, but she's really cuddly too. So lucky having such nice mamas! You hide your smile as Mama Orin starts tickling you with her tails, and try to keep from squirming. She's sneaky, but the only way to get you out of bed is...

Mama Orin giggles, and says your name.

Hello, folks.

Yeah, I know it isn't HLA. Shoot me, but I have hit a rut in HLA, and I believe a part of that is simply having worked with the same characters for so long. In a bit of an effort to recapture my writing spirit, I'm trying something new. I have someone to nudge me along on this, too.

I hope you all can enjoy this.

Sorry for the lack of updates, guys. Classes started back up, and I'm still acclimating. And despite it being only the second week of classes, I just had my first exam of the year a few hours ago.

That said, since that's out of the way, I'll aim for a weekend update.

While you're most likely correct, show some civility towards someone who decided to share the fruit of their creative labors with you. Someone who, like most of us, has other obligations and responsibilities. Do I believe Patchwork is so totally swamped 24/7 with exams and schoolwork at university, based on my own personal experiences, that he is unable to find a moments peace to write a silly fan-fiction story if he had half a mind to? Not particularly. However, that doesn't exclude the possibility that his chosen academic path is more demanding than what I was accustomed to myself, or he just has more difficulty managing time. Regardless, neither are sufficient justification for being a disrespectful, and pompous ass.


I mean, hey. At least he bothers to occasionally pop in and offer apologies that I'm sure he is aware fall short, and could potentially elicit angsty or wangsty comments. Shows some character, considering the medium we're using here. More than what many writers here can bring themselves to do, to be sure.

Don't put up verbose defenses of other writers' work ethic, YAF. It just makes them look bad.

Okay, so kind of a big problem.

On Friday I had a tangle with some malware on my laptop, and while I think I managed to get rid of it all, it seems to have taken a toll on the three or four year old OS. Windows has... hiccups from time to time. Bad ones.

Consequent to that, I'll be backing up some choice files, and reformatting my drive because I should really upgrade to Windows 7 already, and the university is offering it at a dirt cheap price. It's a one-two punch that should get rid of the software troubles, and help me out in the long run. Ideally I should be able to do that tonight, but it's going to be a long process in all likelihood.

So, that leaves me without a functioning computer during the interim. As a result, although I've done work on the next update, don't expect it until late tonight at the earliest. While my laptop is out of commission, I'll try and see if any friends have a computer I can use to keep working on the update. Stay tuned for news on how this all turns out.

Or he's just reached the epitome of laziness and simply stopped writing, moving, thinking, and breathing altogether.
Although I hope that you're right and Patches still loves us.

I arbitrarily declare this thread one excessively long and convoluted plan to troll us all. If Patches wants to argue the point, he can post at the time he schedules instead of lying about it.

Get back to whence you came. Also, why the hell do people keep bumping this. Not only is it still an infant story, but it's written by Patchwork. I cannot comprehend the massive amount of attention it receives. Is it because it's one of the few stories in underground?

That's Kap, not Patch. Patch hasn't been on so much of late, even.
>> No. 6560
>>6558
Believe it or not, but patch can ban people on the irc channel. Doubt it? Just try.
>> No. 6562
>>6560
That's a perk many other writers get as well and it's less maintaining the channel as it is kicking someone for fun.
>> No. 6579

I wasn't talking about kicking, but about banning. You know, the thing like "How could you do that I don't want to see ya again!"

They can, but most don't do it very often because they know someone else will undo it.

Because when I click that button on my browser that brings me to Touhou-Project and I see that list of newly bumped threads and a story I really like and would love to see more of is on there after a long time of no updates, I make an assumption.
Sure enough it's probably not a smart assumption, but it comes from that little part of me that always holds out hope that something good is about to happen. It comes crashing out of the cage of logic after breaking the padlock of pattern recognition and causes me to have a little moment of happiness, and with my heart all gooey and ripe from hope and joy I click on that link only to have the bitter cold taste of disappointment shoved down my throat.
That is why we don't bump threads pointlessly.
