No. She expects you to keep your eyes closed, so it would be rude to ignore her request. You shut your eyes even more firmly than before, waiting in anticipation. Maybe she’s going to give you a present in your arms? You wonder what kind of present she would give.

Chu~

Instead, you feel something soft, warm, and moist on your cheek. Completely taken by surprise, you end up opening your eyes. Out of their corner, you see Shizuha, slightly leaning onto her toes to reach up higher. Her eyes are closed, and her lips pressed against your face.

Babump. Babump.

Your heartbeat quickens. You feel slightly faint as blood rushes up to your face, growing hot. What did she just do to you?

She parts from you, her face the same color as her dress. As you slowly turn your head to her, she gives you an embarrassed but happy smile. “There,” she says. “Now you have the blessing of autumn.”

[x] The special guests of the season.
------

It’s been a while, so why not visit autumn’s special guests for today?

Leaving the mountain behind, you head for the autumnal fields, a place not too far from the Great Youkai Forest. You see that Shizuha has been hard at work, as a dazzling sight of red, orange, and yellow trees welcome you as you soar over the ground. Landing softly on the ground, you decide to take a stroll around to see if you can find them. Not too long after you’ve begun your search, you can hear familiar voices.

“All I’m saying is that you need to act more properly! Your conduct is totally unbefitting of a God!”

“And I’m telling you, I don’t care about being a proper God or whatever! Where do you get off telling your older sister how to act?!”

Whoa, maybe you’ve come at a bad time.

“If you’re always playing around like that, no one’s ever going to respect you, and that’ll drag both of our reputations down!”

Unknown city, unknown country. Year 2009. A young boy with his father is walking back home from the grocery store, just outside their quite large house. The boy asks his father something, to which the father replies with a laughter and ruffles his son's hair. The question which the father passed so lightly was none other than: "Daddy, what happens after we die? Can I live forever?" Almost anyone else would react in the same way as the father did, just explaining that some things are too big for even brave fathers and that some matters just have always been like that, and a mere human can't do anything about it.

This father, however, felt a small surge of guilt deep in his heart. This was not due to passing such a serious question with a simple white lie, but because of the fact that the father had a power to make everyone immortal. Just in the city centre there was a machine long ago forgotten, just being a simple statue for most observes. The machine was black, numerous with cogs and valves, standing around three metres high and two wide. Some even thought it was an old beer brewery. No-one knew who exactly built this device, just that it had been there almost as long as the city had existed. And this machine, good reader, is the central point of our story. This machine could make everyone on the planet Earth immortal.

The father arrives back to their home, telling his son to place the food to fridge and cupboards. As the boy hurries away, the father takes the stairs up. He opens the door to the bedroom and enters it, quietly moving to sit on the bed. There is a woman sleeping on the bed. Even though the woman is sleeping peacefully, the man feels a tear coming out from his eye - the woman is dying. The machines beep quietly as her heart makes some final attempts to keep her body alive. She doesn't have many more days left before cancer wins the many year long battle bringing an end to all her pain for good.

The woman wakes up, slowly turning her weary head to face her husband: "Jonathan? I had a beatiful dream..." Jonathan moves closer as his wife speaks, her voice being only a whisper due to her weak condition. "I was walking in this beatiful

Answering. To be honest, I didn't expect any questions...

>> What happens with Philip and Hina now?

In Hina path you would have gone to the Youkai Moutain area. I was expecting you to put more pressure on the Hina choices, but I guess I wrote them in a fashion which put less importance to them. Anyway, in this game the main goal would have been a fight between two men controlling one body. That would have led to an ending where Hina and Phil/Surautonis decide to start fresh again.

In the path you chose these choices are a bit different. The story would go on in a drama where two men love Hina, but Hina doesn't know who she loves.

>> And what happens to the world now that a cure has been made?

Some people die during the curing process, but most live. Some are driven insane by all the pain and torture they went through during the immortality years, but eventually civilization restores itself.

sometimes a slow period is slow, especially on /youkai/ post site death.

That and I wasn't expecting the story to end just like that, shame too since things felt so rushed after a certain point. Since had I known that, I'd have went with Hina.

I kinda wish for a possible remake in the future, perhaps after things on /youkai/ pick up some.

……

“Ta-da!” Sanae says, raising her arms to the side and giving herself a little twirl. The too-long-for-her skirt swishes about near her ankles, as do the detached sleeves at her elbows. Gripped tightly in her hand is a wooden stick with a flat piece of paper attached to the end, looking rather like a spatula. “How’s this?” she asks brightly.

“… is that really what shrine maidens wear?” you ask doubtfully from your sitting position on the floor. “That’s pretty weird.”

“It isn’t weird!” she protests, frowning.

“C’mere for a second would you?” you say, gesturing for her to come closer. Curiously, she approaches you, wearing a puzzled look on her face.

Your mission is here, with her. "I'll stay," you nod. Sanae nods in return and looks back to Keine.

"Very well," she says, taking a deep breath and pausing. "Where shall I begin..."

... ...

It's hours before you leave her house, back into the light of midday. Your head swims with words, most of them as unfamiliar to you as they seemed to the teacher who just drilled them into you. Although Keine recited the information as one who had learned it second-hand, Sanae took it all in, and took it badly. The existence of another shrine in Gensokyo, and another miko, naturally that would force both parties to take note of each other. But, the nature of this miko's connection to the Border around this land, and how Moriya's presence could be a threat to that... went right over your head, no two ways about it. Clearly, though, it's no joke, to judge by Sanae's dismal mood.

Once past the outer gate, she stops and stares at her feet. "I have to go," she mutters, so low you can barely hear her.

"Go?" You'd been half expecting this, but the question comes out as a reflex just the same. "Go where?"

Her hands clench by her sides. "I have to go," she repeats, louder this time but still directed towards her shoes, "to talk with the Hakurei miko. To tell her that we... that I... she..." After several attempts to explain, she sighs, shrugs and shakes her head, looking up at you. "I have to go." Final.

[ ] "Good luck."
[ ] "Then I'm going with you."

===

Huh. That didn't turn out as long as I thought it might. Well, so much the better. Quick zoom!

What is reality? Where is reality? Who is reality?

---

Moving one foot in front of the other at a rapid rate, I run from the dread of being caught by that thing.

That thing... looks human. It only looks that way, though. As it chases after me, with that insane, crimson smile staining its face, I can only take another step, and then yet another. With each step I get closer to freedom, and with each step I get closer to death. How did things turn out this way, anyway?

That's right. I had come to this awful place with the others, because all the adults were hungry for Kanako's money. They were hungry for money to feed their businesses, to support us, the children, and to so that they could live in splendor. I remember Kanako saying that she resented every last one of them for that inhuman greed, and she called them a pack of starving demons, waiting, just waiting, to devour her soul.

That's right. Kanako had been the first to go. In that bloody pile, we found her dead. Crushed, smashed, beaten, bloody... We had found her dead, that's for sure. Even though we found her there, dead, after a few hours she was... gone. Almost as if she had just gotten up and started walking around, like a zombie possessed with revenge.

Thinking about it now, it scares me even more than that demon chasing after me, waiting to devour my own soul.

I had wanted to help everyone... I was always too late, though. I even hurt my leg when trying to protect Shizuha. My leg, which had already been broken no less than two weeks before. Even now, the pain in my leg jolts through my thigh and into the rest of my body, telling me to give up and die.

I won't die, though. I have to live, for everyone else who's no longer alive. Everyone else... All the others who were swallowed up by that demon.

That demon, with her light pink horns. Her white blouse, now covered in Aya's fresh blood... The thought makes me want to... Hurgh.

I have to keep running, though. Even if the jingling of her belt distracts me. Even if the dragging sound her club makes reminds me of Tenma being pulled along through the halls, freshl

[x] "Yes, please."
[x] Salute the brave sailors of the Nagashi-bina doll navy.
------

“Yes, please,” you say, nodding. Carefully, you scoop up the small boat made from straws and bits of wood, into your arms. Inching closer to the stream of water you gently lower the boat to its surface.

The boat, carrying its paper doll passengers, begins to float down the current of the river. Standing up from your crouched position, you smile as you watch the boat start its journey down the stream. You raise your hand up in a salute, wishing the best of luck and safe travels to the brave sailors of the Nagashi-bina doll army.

Their vessel shakes about unsteadily, as it continues to follow the flow of the river… and then capsizes, floating on upside-down.

You stand there, still saluting, with your mouth agape in shock. Slowly, you lower your hand, frowning.

“How unfortunate…” Miss Kagiyama laments, looking on sadly.

“I’m… I’m sorry…” you mumble, placing a hand on your forehead. “Was that my fault?” Was what she was telling you about… the misfortune and all that… was it really all true? Then, what does that mean?

“No,” Miss Kagiyama says, shaking her head. “You’re not to blame. It’s not a surprising thing to happen. The dolls are carrying the curses of humans, after all.”

You still feel a little responsible, but you ease up on your frown, instead turning to the goddess with a quizzical look on your face.

“Um, say…” you begin to ask. Something’s definitely been bothering you. And you have to clear it up. Or maybe it’s just Miss Kagiyama’s… unique aura, but either way, you have to know something. “What did you mean earlier? By… growing, I mean.”

She looks at you sadly, but nonetheless, she begins to explain. “The curse that is plaguing your body… it’s continuing to grow. It… still seems to be dormant, but… it’s alarming how fast it develops.”

Whoa. That’s scary. But what does that mean? Are you going to be attracting disasters everywhere, or drop dead? You don’t really feel any different, though. “But what can I do about it?” you

Hmph, the great Nero, a video game character in your dream. And he has to be an ass. Whatever, you'll just have some tea. You lift your hands in front of you, already holding an empty cup. The skies themselves pour tea into your cup. Ah, what nice omnipotence lucid dreaming has... You take a sip, tasting pretty much everything you like. Chocolate tea, why not?

You look at Nero again. He's an eyesore.
"Fuck off." You flick your wrist a bit, and the cup flies at Nero with great speed. He blocks the impact with his Devil Bringer, but that doesn't change the fact that he's now covered in tea.

"You..." Is the only thing he mutters before taking a step closer to swing at you. Red Queen is even more beautiful in a dream, leaving a nice firey trail behind it. You lift your right hand to catch the blade. An intense wind is created by the impact, blowing off the windows of your room. Your right hand, is the Devil Bringer.

"Sure, I might rely on your body." You tighten your grip on the sword, bending it, crushing it.
"But that doesn't change the fact that you answer to me." You lift Nero up with his sword, and slam him in the walls, the ceiling, the floor. After about 4 impacts, his sword is utterly destroyed, and Nero's crippled body is leaning on to the wall. You perform the finisher, a giant palm slamming his body into the wall. Nothing remains.
"Lucid dreaming sure is nice." You whisper to yourself and exit your room through the only door...
=
Uh, your throat still sort of hurts. But your Devil Bringer feels better. It has some of that glow returned to it. Looks like you're in bed again. That same bed where Hina tended to you, after you obliterated a nefarious cabinet.

What time is it anyway? No clocks, and you're underground. You were knocked out by tea, was it? You haven't been in bed for like...an entire day? Or a week? Or maybe you get to experience the world in all of its post-apocalyptic glory? That'd be kind of cool.

You exit the room and shout in the hallway.
"Nitori? Are you around here?"
You were about to enter the main 't

Hello. I was thinking of starting a story here, but I was unsure if it would be welcomed.

The basic premise behind this idea is that there was a young man, back where Sanae had lived, who was searching for her. He ends up finding her, just not in the way that he expected.

It would largely be slice of life/attempted comedy. Would you, kind anons of /youkai/, be interested in a story like this?

[x] "I'm not supposed to talk about it."
------

“Sorry. I can’t tell you. I’m not supposed to talk about it,” you said, shaking your head a little. Miss Aya, still looking at you, gave you a little frown.

“Well, now I’m really curious,” she said, biting her lip, although other than that, she didn’t really pry. That was kind of unusual for her. Actually, she’s been acting kind of weird today, since you’ve brought up the mist to her. Hesitation… Maybe she already suspected something…?

“… Hey, Miss Aya?” You decided to break the silence after a while, speeding up a little so that you were flying by her side. “I was curious… but what would happen if the oni returned to Gensokyo?”

… The oni were the ones occupying the Youkai Mountain in the days of old, after all. They resided there, until they decided that they were done with the humans of the surface, retreating somewhere underground. It was after that that the tengu and the kappa became the dominant youkai in the mountain region.

“It would be the worst thing to happen to us,” Miss Aya said, narrowing her eyes. “No doubt they’d want to take back the mountain from the kappa and us. The hundreds of years we’ve spent building up our society in the one that they left behind would be completely demolished.”

“… How strong are they?”

“We’re totally outmatched. If it’s one of the Four Devas of the Mountain, then all of the mountain itself wouldn’t be able to stop just one of them. The only one who really stands a chance against them is Lord Tenma himself,” she said. Was it just your imagination, or did she actually look very worried? “If it was the combined force of all of them, we wouldn’t even be able to hold a candle to them, and that includes the kappa and the other youkai.”

“… That’s scary.”

“Isn’t it? Well, I don’t think that’ll ever happen, at least. The oni are down there by choice, after all.”

Even though she was saying that, she didn’t look very reassured. Maybe… she actually did recognize that mist.
