After much consideration, you finally answer, “Fine, I accept your offer.”

Yukari smiles widely after hearing your response. “Excellent! Now wake up, human. Open the way to the highest floor using those stones. I shall wait for you there.”

Your sight begins to blur as your dream slowly fades away.

-----------------------------------------

“Wake up, human.”

Slowly, you open your eyes. You see Yuuka standing in front of you. She stretches her hand to you, offering to help you get up. Of course, you take her offer.

“Don’t speak too loudly. The others are still sleeping. They’ve refused Yukari’s offer so they will be obstacles to our plan.”

“So, you accepted her offer?”

“Of course. I think it will be fun if all of the humans in the world turn into youkai. There will be a lot of strong people that I could challenge. Besides, I want to fill the Outside World with my beautiful flowers. You’ve made the right choice, human,” she replies with a smile.

“So, umm, what should we do now?” you ask.

“I’ve already stolen the stones from Reimu. With your Earthstone, we can open the portal straight to Yukari.”

Yuuka takes out the other stones from her pocket. After placing the Earthstone that you own into her palms alongside the others, you see the stones begin to shine, covering you and Yuuka in their light.

“Stop! What are you doing? Give back the stones, now!”

The voice comes from Reimu who just woke up because of the bright light emitted by the stones. She shouts angrily, “You traitor! I won’t let you get away with this! Fantasy Seal!”

Fortunately, you and Yuuka manage to teleport away before her attack reaches either of you. Seeing that she's failed to stop you, she screams angrily, “Yukari! This is your plan, isn’t it?!”

----------------------------------

You and Yuuka arrive in an unfamiliar room. In front of you, you see Yukari and her familiars alongside Remilia. Noticing your arrival, Yukari greets you cheerfully.

“Ah, welcome human. I’m glad that you made it safely here. Now, I shall take you to Shinki. You’ll need her power in order to face the Dragon.”

“Remilia, you’re in this, too?” you ask.

“Well, why not? I still have a few bones to pick with those humans in the Outside World. They’ve tried to kill me and my sister many times in the past. So, tell me: I’m quite curious about the reason you've chosen to side with Shinki. You’re a human, are you not?” Remilia says with a smirk.

“I thought that I’d need more power if I’m going to challenge the Dragon. I don’t trust Sariel and her God, so I choose this side. Besides, if all humans turn into youkai, they will have the power to face off equally with the other youkai. That’s my only reason, really.”

“I see. Well, let’s get going, shall we?” says Remilia.

“Wait, where’s this Shinki anyway? Is she in this tower?” you ask.

“She’s below us. There’s a portal in the tower that will take us straight into Makai. We managed to keep it hidden from even the Dragon by using Shinki’s power and mine.” explains Yukari.

----------------------------------------------------

After descending some stairs, you finally arrive at the room where the portal is located. Inside, you see a girl with purple hair and eyes floating in the center of the room. She wears a dress with a white scarf and white sleeves. She approaches Yukari as soon as you enter the room.

“Is this the human?” she asks.

“Yes, he is. Now, open the portal. We need to meet your mistress.” answers Yukari.

She turns her gaze upon you, seemingly inspecting you with her eyes. Then, she speaks to you with a smile on her face. “Oh, I’m glad that you agree to help Milady’s plan, human. Let me introduce myself. I’m Sara, a demon created by Lady Shinki, whom I’ve sworn to serve and worship until the end of time. I was told to guard this portal from anyone who tries to harm Milady.”

“Nice to meet you, Sara.” you reply.

After greeting you, she flies to the center of the room. Then, she begins to chant some kind of incantation. With a crack, a portal begins to appear under her. After the portal has appeared completely, she stops her incantation.

“This portal will take you directly before Milady in her palace. Mind your manners in front of her.” she says before entering the portal and vanishing.

“Let’s go, shall we? To Makai.” says Yukari.

----------------------------

After entering the portal, you arrive in some kind of strange space-like tunnel filled with asteroids and meteors. Sara tells you to follow her. After flying and dodging over countless bits of space debris, you arrive at the end of the tunnel. You see a girl with yellow hair and eyes wearing a white dress along with a white hat and purple bow. Sara flies to her and explains your circumstances.

The girl smiles towards you and says, “Ooo, this is the human? You’re pretty good looking, if I say so myself. I’m Louise, a demon who lives in Makai. Nice to meet you.”

“Umm, nice to meet you too, Louise.” you reply politely.

“Oh, don’t be so formal. You’re one of us, now! Everyone in Makai is a family under our mother and creator, Shinki.” she says cheerily. Then, she hugs you tightly, making you blush in embarrassment.

“That’s enough, Louise. Lady Shinki is waiting,” interrupts Sara.

--------------------------------

After exiting the dimensional tunnel alongside the others, now including Louise, you arrive at a garden in some kind of palace. In it, you see a silver-haired woman alongside a girl in a maid outfit serving her some tea. Noticing your arrival, she approaches you and greets you in a cheerful yet elegant tone.

“Welcome to Makai, noble human. I am Shinki, the goddess of this world. I’m sure you've already heard who I am from Sariel. This is Yumeko, my loyal servant. Feel free to ask her anything you need. You’re our esteemed guest here and soon you’ll be one of us.”

“Umm, nice to meet you, Lady Shinki.” you reply while bowing to her. For some reason, you feel really nervous in front of her. She really has the aura of a goddess.

“Well, let’s get to the point, shall we? We don’t have much time left. I will transform you into a youkai.” said Shinki.

Surprised by her statement, you interrupt her. “What? What do you mean?”

“I mean exactly as I’ve said. I will turn you into a youkai. You need a new power if you’re going to face the Dragon. Those powers you’ve obtained from absorbing Magatsuhi came from the Dragon. He could easily take them back and you’ll be just an ordinary human again. So, what kind of youkai do you want to be, hmm? I could turn you into any kind, as long as it’s within my capability. I perfected this ability in Makai just for this day. Choose wisely, human. Use your imagination.”

[x] A Crow tengu with the ability to use the power's of the dead as if they were your own with only memory of their face(to find the spirit to copy off).

You guys are thinking too small. Yukari has implied we can choose a power too, and rule of touhou abilities means if we choose well we can abuse it to Makai and back. While I am very tempted to just say "manipulation of boundaries" I think we can be a bit more inventive.

We can assume most Touhou's are dead now so we get everything from nukes to Insta-kills to summoning gods. We would also retain (or even improve on) our existing ability's as they are also dead.

Perfect tech-copying from sight is also valid and will allow us to retain our present skills (use them once on a dummy/mirror and we've seen them being used) and learn lot's of new ones to blow things up with. This also synergies well with Crow Tengu's heightened senses.

As for base Species the only 2 worth having are Crow Tengu and Oni. Tengu's fast, Oni's strong(er).

You do realize that after the Dragon is killed, the MC will revive all dead Touhous, making that power useless?

There's still the battle to defend Earth against the angels after that, you know.
>> No. 149989
Writer here.

Your new power as a youkai doesn't work retroactively so using the powers of dead touhous that you've seen wouldn't work that way.

You also can't be a tengu while having other powers that a tengu shouldn't have. The species of youkai that you become will be decided by the power that you have.

There will still be one last battle after you've defeated the Dragon.

Shape-shifting is good so long as we get the form's powers but somehow I doubt that will be part of the deal and then we only get physical stats and fooling people, not too hot in the upcoming fights.

However I have a different idea...
Replace >>149984 with
[x] I gain the powers and Highest stats of those around me.(friend or foe)
-[x] Use Newfound power near Yukari. to seal existing powers elsewhere before before fighting the dragon.

We become an equalizer. Worse case scenario we mirror our enemies, best case we are much more. Just with our current party we would get Yukka's strength/endurance, Remi's speed/agility and Boundary Manipulation, in addition to the opponent's powers/stat's and those we already have. That is scary.

Yes it is a very good power but on it's own it is limited. especially against strong foe's

Tengus aren't lacking in strength, only behind Oni and Vampires in that area, and it's better than trying some half-ass mary-sue reeking method.

How about Operation of parallel worlds as a power.

This is one with broad powers that hasn't been used yet.

It allows travel to and from different dimensions. (and basically teleportation if we travel to one world and then pop back into this one.)

The ability to absorb/use knowledge from a parallel self. And since there are an unlimited amount of universes about things that could and couldn't happen, the person that is us could be and do anything.

As well as the ability to absorb and use energy from the differing multiverse. Like chakra, chi/ki, magic, reiryoku, etc etc.

“I have decided. I will become a youkai of change.”

“Youkai… of change?” said Shinki, her head tilting to the side.

“Yes, youkai of change. If we are going to face the so-called God, we must be able to fight against His laws. So, what is the opposite of law?”

“Chaos?”

“Exactly. We need to fight His laws with the power of chaos. One of the aspects of chaos is change. I want the power to change His laws, to bend them for our benefit.”

Behind you, Yukari lets out a laugh that echoes around the garden. She pats you on the back and says, “Clever, very clever! That’s a brilliant idea, human. I’m really interested about what you will be capable of doing with that power.”

“Change, huh? Interesting, very interesting.” remarked Yuuka with a grin on her face.

“Well, I hope you become a powerful youkai, human. I don’t want you to drag us down when we fight the Dragon.” said Remilia.

“Alright, let’s begin the ritual. Yumeko, fetch Mima. Tell her to bring that ‘thing’.” said Shinki, her face beaming with excitement.

Yumeko nods at her before flying into a window located on the nearby tower.

Hearing the name “Mima”, you suddenly remember that Mima is the name of Marisa’s lost mentor. You decide to ask Shinki about her.

“Ah, so you already knew. Yes, she’s the same Mima that taught Marisa magic. She left her apprentice alone in Gensokyo to help me. She's a prodigy at researching new kinds of magic...and older, forbidden ones. Those, even more so. I wanted her to help find out how to turn a human into a youkai, so I gave her my knowledge of the 'Ultimate Magic' in exchange for her service.”

Her words hardly reach your ears after "Left gensokyo", though. "Why would she do that, suddenly leaving her apprentice without telling her anything? She should visit her once in a while. Marisa really misses her.” you protested.

“Let me answer that question myself.”

The voice comes from a green-haired woman with a ghost tail as her legs. She carries a staff with a crescent moon attached to the tip of it. Slowly, she descends from the tower with an amused grin on her face.

“I left my apprentice alone because she’s qualified enough to become a full-fledged magician by herself. At that time, she was already as powerful as I was, if not more. She didn’t need me any longer so why should I keep babysitting her?”

“You’re wrong! She still needs you. "I can tell, I saw the pain in her face when she mentioned your name. She cares about you, not only as her mentor but also as her family.”

“Hmph, that girl is such a troublesome child. How many times have I told her not to look at me as her mother?”

“Her mother?”

She looks away from you before answering your question, a tinge of sadness in her voice.

“Her mother died while she was giving birth to her. She lived alone with her father who really hated everything supernatural, including magic. As fate would have it, she saw me performing some magic one day...”

”Wow, how did you do that, Ms. Ghost Lady?”

”Huh, what are you doing here, little child? Are you lost?”

”Uh huh, I can’t find my father anywhere.”

”Well, do you want me to help you find him?”

”Nuh uh. I want to know first how you did that, you know, making those fireflies!

”They are not fireflies. I created them with my magic. Look, I’ll give one of them to you.

”Aah, they’re so warm and bright! Please, Ms. Ghost Lady, teach me how to make them!


“In the end, she left her father to learn magic from me. She was a really smart and diligent student, always trying out new spells even without my supervision.”

“Then why did you leave her?”

“What are you, deaf or just stupid? I had nothing else to teach her. I told you that she was already stronger than I at that time. As her mentor, I couldn’t allow that to happen. I decided to stay here in Makai so that I could learn the ‘Ultimate Magic’, the most powerful magic that has ever existed.”

“So you abandoned her because you desired more power for yourself?”

Her face turns red with anger after hearing your accusation. Instead of answering your question, she grabs your neck and chokes it with her grasp.

“Enough of this talk. It’s time for you to become a youkai. This will only hurt a little.”

She throws her wand to the ground and takes out a strange worm-like thing from her pocket. She brings the worm in front of your eyes. You can only stare in horror before the worm jumps into one of your eyes.

“Aaaaaaaah!”

Mima releases her grip as your scream echoes throughout the garden. Shinki responds by chanting some strange words in a language that you can’t understand. Somehow, her voice, combined with your scream, creates a terrible yet beautiful demonic symphony. It’s the last thing you hear before losing your consciousness.

----------------------

I, who am I?

Am I… a human?

No, not anymore. I…

I am… a youkai now.

Yes, that’s right. I can feel it.

The endless possibilities… that await me.

I am now… Chaos itself!

--------------------------------

You are now the embodiment of Chaos, the harbinger of Change. You have lost all your previous power except for absorbing Magatsuhi from a dead or near dead person. Instead, you have three new powers.
Level 1 = Shapeshift into anything you want
Level 2 = Change the laws of physics
Level 3 = Change the rules of logic
The higher the level is, the more difficult for you to use that ability and maintain it.

---------------------------------

After you wake up, you realize that you don’t have your human body anymore. You are now just a consciousness in a formless body, floating freely in the air. Strangely, you don’t feel weird at all. In fact, you feel really excited, gaining a new body like this.

You notice that everyone is staring at you, including two girls that you’ve never seen before.

“Are you alright?” said Shinki.

“Better than ever.” You realize that somehow you can speak, but not in your normal voice. Your voice sounds hollow and empty.

“That’s great! I was worried that there will be some complications after your transformation.” said Shinki.

“So, who are those two girls over there?”

“Oh, they are Yuki and Mai, a pair of witches. They are also created by my power. Why don’t you greet them?”

“Save the chat for later. I think we have some ‘guests’ that we must greet.” interrupted Yukari while pointing to the sky.

You look upwards to see a bright ball of light suddenly appearing out of thin air. It immediately explodes, sending out multiple laser beams towards the palace where you are now. Shinki anticipates it by erecting a barrier around the palace. It manages to block each and every one of those beams.

“I see that you’re still sharp as ever, o accursed one.”

The booming voice belongs to Sariel who appears from where the ball used to be. You see that she brings along Reimu, Marisa, Kasen, and the others that you have left behind. There are also two additional people that you don’t recognize.

Kasen shouts towards Yukari angrily. “Where is he? What have you done to him?”

“Oh, he’s right over there.” replied Yukari while pointing at you. “He’s no longer a human. He is now a youkai of change who will help us realize our goal.”

“You… how could you? Turn him back!”

“That won’t be necessary, Kasen.” you interrupted their conversation. “This… is the path that I’ve chosen for myself. With this power, I shall kill the Dragon and turn all humans on Earth into youkai.”

Kasen can only stare at you in shock. She can’t believe that you have turned yourself into a youkai. “B… but, why?”

“Why? No, the right question is ‘Why not?’ A youkai is superior to a human in all aspects; stronger, smarter, wiser. They even live far longer than a human can. That’s why I agree with her. Look at me. I’m no longer the weak farmer that you used to know. I am now a powerful youkai, the youkai that shall free not just Gensokyo, but also the rest of the world from God’s clutches. This battle for creation happens over and over again because He allows it. I will never forgive Him for that.”

“I’m very disappointed in you, human. Why do you choose this accursed path?” said Sariel.

“I am no longer human, oh angel of God! I can see it now… the infinite potential that this world has, the potential that your God sealed away a long time ago! Along with Shinki, we shall free this world from His yoke and establish a kingdom free from His laws!”

“Isn’t he beautiful? He’s the embodiment of everything that I’ve been working for all this time since you defeated me at that day. Your God had been too careless, letting me survive for this long.” said Shinki mockingly.

“Ignorant fool! You only survive because of His mercy! He doesn’t want you to be tortured in Hell for all eternity! He wants you to abandon your pride and beg for His forgiveness!” said Sariel angrily.

“Hah, you hear that? Her God is just a big egomaniac who wants to be praised and worshipped by His creation! Why should I bow down to such a being?” replied Shinki.

“Hold it you two!” interrupted Reimu. “I don’t care about the problems between both of you. I just want to know why do you plan on turning every human on Earth into youkai?”

“Why, that’s because they are needed, my dear Reimu.” said Yukari with a playful tone. “We need their power to fight against the angels that will attack us if we start the ritual to free this world from God. Besides, they should be glad that they will become a more beautiful and powerful being.”

“A more beautiful being? Don’t make me laugh! I have pride in being human! I won’t let myself be turned into a youkai!” said Marisa

“I see. So you still refuse to become a true magician, my dear apprentice?” said Mima.

“What? You… why are you here?” said Marisa, her shock evident on her face.

“I’m helping Shinki, of course. In exchange for teaching me the ultimate magic, I helped her to perfect the ritual for creating a new universe. Now, why don’t you come over here and join us?”

She flinches after hearing her offer. She really wants to join her old mentor but on the other hand she can’t betray her best friend, Reimu. She glances towards her, hoping to find some reassurance but Reimu just glares back at her.
“I… I can’t! You… you are no longer my master, not after you have abandoned me all this time! I can’t abandon Reimu just for you!” replied Marisa with a shaky voice.

“I see. Then, I too will no longer see you as my apprentice. You are now my enemy, Marisa Kirisame!” replied Mima with a disappointed look on her face.

“Alright, let’s cut the chit-chat, shall we? We all know that our battle here is inevitable. Just get this over with.” you said.

“Tell me, why do you choose to side with Shinki? Aren’t we all your friends? Aren’t you that farmer that I used to talk to?” said Keine

“Haven’t I told you already? That farmer is dead. The one standing before you is the almighty youkai of change, the embodiment of Chaos itself.”

Hearing your answer, she can only lower her head in sadness. Mokou, who’s standing beside her, tries to comfort her. Then, she shouts at you angrily.

“You traitor! I’ll never let you get away with this!”

She charges towards you, her fists clenched in her hands, only to be stopped by Remilia. She punches her in the stomach, sending her flying a few feet away from you.

“Hmph, don’t forget about me, the great Scarlet Devil!” said Remilia with a haughty voice.

“I’ve heard enough!” The booming voice comes from the green-haired girl whom you don’t recognize. “I, Shikieiki Yamaxanadu, have reached a verdict! All of you are guilty for disrupting the balance between humans and youkai! For that, I sentence all of you to hell! Komachi, prepare for battle!”

“I’m always ready, Lady Eiki!” replied the red-haired girl beside her cheerfully. “I feel sorry for you all, having to be sent to hell, but that’s what you got for angering the yama.”

“I, too, will fight against all of you! Lady Yuyuko will never agree to your foul plans! Prepare to die by my sword!” said Youmu while drawing her blades.

“How about the rest of you? Will you commit the unforgivable sin of fighting against God?” said Sariel.

“Chen and I will always fight beside Lady Yukari! If you even think on harming her, we will bare our fangs towards you!” said Ran.

“Lady Shinki, allow me to help you in fighting that angel!” said Yumeko

“Me too! I won’t let you harm Lady Shinki!” said Sara.

“We’ll fight for Lady Shinki, right Mai?” said Yuki. Mai only nods her head in response.

“You heard them. We demons will always fight for our creator!” said Louise.

Our form depends on our foe. A lava elemental/huge lava slime to fight Mokou (fire immunity and can simply smother her to win), a Huge magnet that looks like Yuyuko against Youmu/Komachi(disarm her, then change into something else to kill). Enforce scientific/outside world logic on Marisa to disable her magic before attacking with a bladed arm. Once the enemies are few Transform into an angel and pretend to be on Sariel's side to get close before sneak attacking/holding her in place to allow Shinki to kill(if we can't).

I'm not sure transforming into an angel will work. Sariel would be suspicious if an angel comes out from nowhere to help her. But other than that, I'm okay with your plan.
