In which the WIZARD RIDES AGAIN!

[X] The smallest of hints, previously unnoticed.

You wake up with a rabbit on your head.

Cranking open bleary eyes, you scan the room. Mokou is snoozing on the floor mats by the big sliding door in back, her head pillowed on a rabbit. From the feel of it, about a dozen rabbits are pillowed on you, completely covering you from head to toe.

You close your eyes again, content to doze all morning. Hell, you’ve earned it.

Furtive little floorboard creaks prompt another squint, revealing Keine in a nightdress carefully picking her way over and through the rabbit-covered floor towards the back door. Stepping over Mokou, she gingerly slides it open, her clothes, makeup kit and brush gathered precariously in her free arm. She steals outside stealthily, no doubt to the bathhouse.

You close your eyes again. Women are silly. Who’s going to see her all sleep-rumpled in her own home? And who’d care? Not the rabbits, or Miss Hotpants or Duke or-

- you pop off your bed like a flat steel spring, sending surprised rabbits flying everywhere. You leap for the kitchen door and slam it shut a breath ahead of twelve pissed-off rabbits. Filling the sink with warm water and a little soap, you jam your head in and blow bubbles to provide agitation for a minute or two, then yank it out and shake it violently like a dog. Snatching a dish-towel from the counter you furiously dry yourself.

Footsteps approach the door, and in panic you tear open the magic cold-box and fling the towel inside.

The door slides aside to reveal Mokou.

You’re leaning against the refrigerator casually.

“Sup.”

“... whatever depraved shit you’re doing, just keep it away from the food,” Mokou mutters, closing the door with more force then strictly necessary.

Bitch.

You whip up a fire in the stove and put the tea-kettle on. After a moment’s thought, you scrounge up another one and put that on, too. Do sentient mean rabbits drink tea? Perhaps not, but why risk it?

Digging in your robe’s magical pocket, you produce your grimories, lay them on the counter and take a deep breath to clear your mind, which is surprisingly easy. You really slept well. Then you focus on selecting your spells.

Wizards live or die by the spells they prepare in the morning. Some go with favorites, useful in many situations. Others pick specialty spells and a few good ‘escape’ spells to simply flee if they’re caught unprepared. The rest tend towards arsenals of subtle, pernicious dewomers that can ensnare most anything that walks the planes.

You prepare spells to become a magic-immune iron dragon swimming in lava at the speed of light.

When in Rome, etc.

You’re just finishing your morning prep when Keine enters the kitchen. She starts a little at seeing you.

“Oh!”

“Morning~” you say cheerfully, hoping your hair has dried. “Tea ought be ready.”

“That’s what I wanted to hear,” Mokou grumps, bumping past Keine as she makes for the stove. Rummaging in the cabinets, she disdains the little teacups and produces a cavernous mug, pouring half a teapot into it.

“For the rabbits,” she answers Keine’s dubious look. She squeezes out of the small kitchen again to greet an eager crowd of bunnies, snouts upturned and sniffing the air.

“So, what would you like for breakfast?” Keine asks you, a little too brightly.

“Food,” you answer honestly.

“Omelets?” Keine asks, and you nod. “Great. Toast?” You nod. “Great! How about hash browns, you can’t have eggs without potatoes. Oh, and biscuits, I’ve got biscuit gravy and all sorts of stuff for it...” The schoolteacher flings open the ice-box and begins rummaging energetically.

Seeking a refill, Mokou enters the kitchen in time to see Keine toss the dish-towel over her shoulder with nary a notice as she digs through the cold-box. “I’ve got some strawberries and buttermilk for pancakes, to go with the eggs, and – oh, sausage! Just have a seat in the main room I’ll be right out with this, which would you like first?”

Mokou’s head leisurely swings ‘round to share the expression of the completely unmoved. Tabling her mug, she latches onto Keine’s hem and hauls her out of the ice-box, kicking the door closed.

I will make breakfast,” Mokou states flatly over Keine’s cry of protest. “Because you two had such a tough night, let me take care of it.”

“But-!”

“Why don’t you sit down in your room, away from the rabbits and have a nice cup of tea with your new friend here?”

Panic fills Keine’s eyes as she dares a glance at you. “BUT~!”

“Don’t you want to sit down and drink some fucking tea?” Mokou growls, shooting you a look.

You nod hastily.

“Great,” she says, and shoves Keine out the door unceremoniously. Then she shoves the other teapot into your arms, shoves a pair of cups in your pocket and shoulders you out of the kitchen.

“Breakfast in fifteen,” she says, and slams the flimsy wooden door so hard it vibrates.

Um. You look around for help, but only see Cirno on your bed, head pillowed on one rabbit and arms wrapped around another, its pink nose buried in the crook of her shoulder. In the other corner lies a large wolf; Duke in his canine form. Curled nose to tail on the floormats, he slumbers happily, surrounded at a respectful distance by a ring of watchful bunnies.

You hand Keine a teacup and daintily pour her a cuppa. “How’d you sleep?”

“Not much. Normal though... this time of month.” She keeps her eyes on her teacup, swirling the liquid nervously. “You?”

“Fantastic. Felt like I slept for months.

From the bed, the rabbit that’d been sleeping on your noggin gives you the stink-eye and sneezes in disgust before turning away from you.

Keine smiles at the floor. “No tossing or turning, you slept like the dead. I guess rabbits make the best pillows?”

“When they’re asleep,” you say, shooting a glare at the head-napper. You sip at your tea, wondering why Keine’s being so evasi-

You suck in your breath so fast you inhale some tea. Keine jumps forward in alarm as you sputter for air, but you ward her off with an upraised palm as you recover.

Evasive.

Waking the dead.

Nervous, evasive, waking the dead-

“I know you like caffeine but you can’t swim in it,” Keine says in teacherly tones as she confiscates the teapot. “Are you okay?”

“Patchouli,” you reply.

Keine blinks.

“That is not okay,” she says in a strained voice.

“No, no. Yesterday. In the library. I mentioned necromancy,” you say. “She got all antsy and changed the subject really quick.” You smack yourself upside the head. “Bloody... how could I miss that until now?”

“Oh. Oh!” Keine replies, steadying your hand with hers and applying the teapot. “Have more tea. You think better with it.”

You smile at the schoolteacher. “I don’t think it’s the tea, Keine.”

She sips at her tea demurely, trying hide a little smile. Speaking of things you’ve been missing... you’re sure you know why Keine’s growing so thundershy recently, you just can’t nail it down. You ponder a tactful question –

- the back of your neck tingles as into your awareness blossoms magical energies just above the kitchen door – scrying.

Adrienne surges and your skin tingles as you rush aside all thought to focus on the fading dewomer of Detect Scrying. Feeling the scry, tasting the unique interplay of energies, you find the distant thread of divination, feel along its length, and at a weak spot you push.

The caster reacts instantly, struggling to maintain the spells integrity, and somewhere very, very distant you hear ceramic crack and shatter as you fight to wrest the spell away from the interloper. Distant chanting fills your ears as more energy is poured into the clairvoyant link. Bullying into that link with magical might and arcane deftness, you struggle to capture the spell. Jaw grinding, pulse pounding loud in your ears, you strain with desperate fury for mental traction.

At last, at the brink of hope, your foe slips, and your vision swims as the clairvoyance turns on the caster. As Detect Scrying’s energies expire, a final image shines clear in the air before you.

The tea-chugging asthmatic adversely aromatic pervert punk Patchouli.

Good luck hiding while you've got this one going. Even if we only get the Sickened affect it'll be pretty bloody hard to dodge the Wizard for the next 2-3 hours until it goes away. Plenty of time to plan an assault!

Helps doubly that its a pain in the butt to get rid of. Its non-lethal, bit of a downside, but if whoever's eyeballing us isn't a baddy we can be excused for reacting more easily if their brains aren't melting out of their ears.

I mean, scry-and-die or a similar act is rather overboard, not to mention it will cause you to (gasp) miss the treasured morning time with Keine.

Eyebite would show you to be both highly valuing your privacy, and highly unforgiving - because you are doing it to an acquaintance who hasn't done too much wrong to you.

[X]SHAMEFUR DISPRAY


A dozen emotions leap for your throat simultaneously. Your wrath doesn’t just jump to a conclusion, it pole-vaults clear over reason and lands with both feet on “evil necromancer zombai-goast summoner” with a healthy dose of “lost opportunities with hot hakutaku” thrown in. Wrath wants a word – like the Teleport incantation to zip right to Patchouli’s pad and commence righteous asskickings.

But handily out-muscling Wrath is something much, much stronger – Umbrage.

Your head swivels with the cold mechanical intent of a dwarven ballista swinging to bear, your eyes boring right at the magical sensor of Patchouli’s scrying spell.

“Bitch,” you sneer with crisp disdain. “Please.

The sensor vanishes in a puff of shocked surprise.

Turning back to Keine, you take a little sip of tea and enter a proper huff.

“... what?” Keine asks, mystified.

“Patchouli,” you huff.

Keine bites her lip and her brow gains a slight furrow, like she’s actively resisting changing the conversation.

“She just scryed on us,” you mutter.

“Oh. Oh!” Keine exclaims. “It was her!?

“Looks like.”

Mokou’s head pops out of the kitchen door. “Patchy did what now?”

“Spied upon us!” Keine says. “Just like she did yesterday, seconds before my home was violated by enslaved spirits!” Keine crosses her arms in a proper huff, somehow keeping her teacup from sloshing.

Mokou and Keine both watch you expectantly.

You sip at your tea conservatively, still in the throes of high dudgeon. The women continue to watch you. Little cabals of rabbits circled around shallow, tea-filled pans look up at you in anticipation.

You glance left-right-left suspiciously.

“What?”

“You’re... not going to kick in her door and thrash her place like an autistic man-child?” Mokou wonders.

“Autistic,” you say, sampling the syllables. “That’s a big word for a half-rate fire-”

“You really aren’t?” Keine cuts you off hastily. “I mean, you – you... well, you!

You chug down your tea and appropriate the pot for some more. “Yes, fantastic idea, lets attack an insanely powerful witch in her own sanctum who’s friendly with two travel-sized demonvamps and a knife-crazy maid who folds space-time easier than tea-towels. Oh, wait, that’s stupid.”

Mokou sags against the doorframe under the crushing weight of her doubt. She glares at you, gimlet-eyed. “Logic, my ass. You’re pissed.”

You stiffen as your dudgeon gets a little higher. “There’s a dozen odd ways to spy on another wizard relatively discreetly. Directly scrying on them like they’re some uneducated rube isn’t one of ‘em.”

“Uneducated?” Keine queries.

“You can enchant little birds to spy on people, send magical constructs to observe from a distance, employ summoned or bound creatures – hell, Patchouli’s got more options than I do. She manipulates spiritual energies like an element, which I can’t. Not even Mystic Theurge’s can dip into Druid territory, like she can.”

“And yet she scried upon you,” Keine says.

“Just opened a direct conduit from her mirror to my location. A honking big magical tube with a flaming sign on it, ‘look at me I’m a magic sensor!’ Hell, anybody with enough brainymeats can notice that.

Keine’s brow furrows. “Then why didn’t I?”

Behind her, Mokou reaches behind her head, seizes her own hair, and with a grimace of incredible exasperation peels her cranium back into the kitchen.

“... dunno,” you say. “But for Patchouli to just blunder in here like I’m some hedge-mage with his thumb up his ass – ooooh,” you growl. “Give me lessons, you semen-squeezing clown-sexing bint!? Hah!” You slurp at your tea with sloppy aggressiveness, peering into the distance as you nurse your wounded dignity.

Keine giggles.

“What?” you ask, glancing at her. She’s clamping her hand over her mouth, face turning red as she suffocates her mirth.

“What,” you ask primly, “are you giggling at?”

The ordinarily dignified schoolteacher falls apart, helpless giggles erupting uninhibited. You glare down at her from the chilly heights of umbrage most grievous as she slides down the wall, giggling helplessly.

At last, the attack subsides, and she glances up at you shyly.

“It’s not funny,” you say curtly.

That just sets her off again, prompting you to retire to your bed with your tea to wait out your huff over your colleges crass insult. Want to butt in on the new guy in town? Just mutter some hocus-pocus at a mirror, right? Not like he’d know the most basic counter-divination measure ever invented, right?

Of course not. Because he uses Fireball, and only idiots think Fireball is good, everybody knows that, so lets just rooooll up on him like he’s some knuckle-dragging fire-caller who only has magic because his great-grandmother liked ‘em tall, scaly and shapeshifted.

You notice the bunnies watching you curiously.

“What’re you looking at?” you mutter, and drain your teacup huffily.

Mokou bursts from the kitchen with a heavily-loaded tray, slapping it down on the low table. “Breakfast,” she growls.

“WHEEEE~” somebody screeches, and a flying rabbit catches you in the face as Cirno fairly explodes from the bed, executing a rolling-dive and finishing with a slide to the table. “Man, I’m starving!”

“Already done? That was quick,” you comment, removing the huge rabbit from your lap, or trying to. It seems to like it there, and is not inclined to budge.

“Being a half-rate fire-caller has some advantages,” Mokou grumbles, kneeling at the table. “Cirno, slow down or you’ll choke.”

“Hmufuff,” Cirno replies as she shovels down eggs.

“So,” Mokou asks you. “What dangerous lunacy are you planning on dragging my best friend into today?”

“Thought I’d improvise,” you reply, tucking the rabbit under your arm as you walk to the table and sit cross-legged. “I’m pretty good at that.”

“What is our next move?” Keine asks you. “We’ve at least ruled out the Society, but...” Keine frowns. “The ghost attack hasn’t been repeated. Despite our paranoia. Even by Reimu’s hair-trigger standards, that’s not much of an ‘incident.’ And if the culprit really sought to send us on a wild-ghost chase, wouldn’t further chase play right into her hands?”

“So...” you say, inviting a continuation.

“So couldn’t we just... ward the house and sit tight? Other forces are trying to manipulate you. I predicted as much. Why don’t we take your piece off the board?”

“It’s... tempting,” you admit. “I can dig a hole and literally pull it in after me. But I think that’s what somebody wants me to do.”

“How so?” Mokou asks.

“The Gazebo. That was a message, I think. Back off, or get squashed.”

“Pretty blunt message,” Mokou comments through a mouthful of hash browns.

“I’ve got a way with words myself,” you glower.

“So what’s your next move?” Mokou asks casually, picking up her plate to shovel hash browns down directly. Cirno picks up on this and mimics the technique, earning Mokou a disapproving look from Keine.

You think. Given Patchouli’s scrying, returning to the Scarlet Devil Mansion is a ticklish proposition at best. You could confront Suwako about her hide-and-go-seek game with the Giant and the Society despite her deific perception making such things moot, but “confront” and “deity” are concepts you avoid combining in practice (with little empirical success.) Besides, there’s something dangerous lurking under Suwako’s cheerful exterior, and you’re not eager to draw it out.

All things equal, you’d rather talk to the subject-matter expert on the ghost angle.

“I think we should drop Youmu a line,” you say. “Yuyuko said something about giving her ‘instructions’ for handling the ghost business; smart money says she’s dug up something by now. Perhaps we should compare notes?”

“Notes,” Mokou says, grunting. “Oh, don’t get all urbane and cultured on me now, Wizard. Reimu just beats people senseless till she gets answers, seems to work for her, every time.”

You gesture at Mokou with one hand, palm up, and give Keine a meaningful look. The schoolteacher just rolls her eyes.

Or you could act civilized for two minutes and throw everyone off their guard,” Keine grumps. “We could ask Meiling of events around the Mansion. Or Koakuma, about Patchouli.”

Duke’s wolfy muzzle cruises in past your left elbow and gingerly seizes a plate of eggs’n’ham, then withdraws with his prize.

“Why them?” you ask, trying to elbow the huge rabbit away from your toast.

“They’re genuinely sweet girls and not much invested in the plots of their masters,” Keine tells you. “Much like Youmu. They’d talk without realizing they were divulging crucial information, I think – and not mind much if they did.”

You tussle with the rabbit for your toast, thinking about that. “But that means going into the Mansion.”

“We can catch Youmu in town this morning,” Keine tells you. “She usually makes a grocery run every other day like clockwork. She always greets me, too. Such a polite girl.” She gives Mokou a meaningful look with that, and the white-haired girl just tilts her plate up a little further to block Keine’s gaze.

“I’m going into town to see if Reisen or Eirin’s about,” Mokou says. “You might want to talk to ‘em, too. They see much and say little, generally.”

“Or Byakuren,” Keine says thoughtfully. “At the very least we should tell her about the Society, and the recent split. She might keep Riku and his hunters off our backs for a bit.”

“Point,” you agree.
Cirno sits back with a satisfied burp. “You’re just gonna talk to a bunch of girls in silly hats,” she points out. “Make up yer minds already!”

I actually kind of doubt that Pathouli was behind the ghosts - she's shown many magical talents, but necromancy is not one of them, and even she has to have limits somewhere.

Seriously though, after reading SoPM, my interpretation of Byakuren was pretty much retconned to match Stripe Pattern's. I hope that the same isn't true for Deme.
>> No. 156242
Well... maybe Byakuren was just stating her view on the current situation (humans being ruled by youkai) and wants to change that situation (into a friendly equality). Or maybe I'm just grasping at straws here, but I think I liked friendly, Youchrist Byakuren better.

Kinda weird how a couple of Youkai previously stated to be human-friendly are now human-hostile, but whatever.
>> No. 156243
>>156242
Really? I think her goal now is to convert as many youkai as she can to Buddhism so that they could exist without depending on human fear anymore. She doesn't really care about the humans.

There's really no reason to show more attention to Patchy right now. Let her stew a bit. However, going by details of Patchy Quest she actually is a good candidate to enchant the GAZEBO, all things considering. Whether it was of her own accord or she was comissioned.

>what's wrong with Byakuren

>and can anyone provide a link?

>> No. 156249
>>156247
Not food in the way that Rumia does, but more a needed requirement for the continued existance of many Youkai. As such, the needs of the Youkai trump those of the Humans in Gensokyo, as the Humans can exist without the Youkai, but oh so many of the Youkai cannot exist without the Humans.

It's a book with information about characters from MoF onwards that was released by ZUN about a week ago.

http://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Symposium_of_Post-mysticism

>what's wrong with Byakuren
Byakuren acts kind of shady in the meeting parts, and her entry also portrays her in a rather negative light. Specifically she says things like: "The humans in Gensokyo exist for no further purpose than to preserve the youkai".
>> No. 156251
>>156250
Considering there are many Youkai who exist only because there are Humans that believe in them, she kind of has a point in that the Youkai need the Humans.

Still, given this interview book by Akyu, along with her past one, I'm now of the opinion that she is the true leader of the anti-youkai secret society, and is purposely taking words and statements out of context while playing the long term game.

Though honestly, if she really wanted an effective way to get the Humans to band together against Youkai on basic principle, all she'd really have to do is encourage Aya to keeping acting as she normally does.
>> No. 156252
Given how Byakuren came to Keine's house on behalf of the villagers, trying to help them with the power-crazed mage who had just dropped in out of nowhere and had started messing up the village, I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that, no matter what Zun's Byakuren is, Demetrious' Byakuren is Jesuskuren.

I'm a little worried about Youmu though, after that dream we had about her dying many updates ago. Keep that in mind going forward, guys, since its been a while.
>> No. 156260
>>156249
That's hard to say as humans in Gensokyo would likely in the absence of youkai either grow horribly soft of be forced to adjust to an alien world (the outside world)

Even gods need humans for faith. If you think about it, gods and youkai are two sides of the same coin. Both function off of some sort of belief.

Yeah, but the thing is, the voters voted for that. Granted, Kahi did give them what they wanted, but seriously, I'm laying the blame on those trainwrecks on the voters as well as the writer.

Amusingly, that's why some are so vocally trying to blame "Other" sites, because some of them want to believe that "There is no way in hell that some of the people in THP would vote for that" (even though history shows otherwise).
>> No. 156442

Actually, SB has a strong tendency of tearing people who post pornographic and romantic stories on the site apart. We also don't really care much about "Pairings", for it is the weak who adore parings. The strong, you see, they adore Plot. That's why we ask our writers to give us that plot. To give us powerful characters with strong development. To give us competent composition and the active voice of GOD. To suspend our disbelief, engage us in a story, and immerse us in the characters.

We also won't complain when shit blows us. But yeah, there's actually never been recommendations for "City Quest" over on Spacebattles, and the few SB'ers who do talk about stories they watch on this site usually only comment about this story, Do The Right Thing, some of Lion's works, and every now and then Doll's/Patchy Quest.

So I have no clue why you're blaming SB, other than maybe ignorance or personal dislike of someone there. Either way though, it's not appreciated, and it's certainly not on topic. Bitch about us all you want to your hearts content over in /blue/ though, as it's really not appropriate in this thread here.

That's not entirely true. I still remember that SBers are the one making that harem sidestory in that ZnT/Touhou crossover.

But for the rest of your point, it's true. Kahi's no longer active there.

Hence the merry crowd part. And if anon goes too far, it's the writer's job to draw the line and say no. Merely being a pushover to such stupid impulses has traditionally lead to the writer being condemned regardless of the amount of reader fault.

>>156437
What history? The only time such crazy things happen were done, it was in the spirit of "Fuck this shitty writer), "Let's see if he'll do it" or "It's just a joke vote" (that ends up being bandwagoned. But City Quest drew a particular bunch of people, likely the yukkuri nuts from the /at/ thread (unlikely to step outside the thread) and those from Kahi's usual reader base.

>>156442
I say that as if it weren't for his fanbase, he wouldn't be anywhere as popular as he is as unlike Demetrious, he only has a small amount of unrefined talent and with such folk as readers, there's no chance of it growing or becoming refined.

It doesn't help that early on in Doll quest, a retarded Build was voted on. This gave the impression Kahi's fans from there were a particularly retarded version of /tg/.

Honestly if it weren't his SB fanbase, his Doll Quest would have been just another /th/ story forgotten in the eyes of most.

This has been mentioned in /blue/ but I don't think you'd bother going and looking it up.

I'm a voter in CQ, and yes, if you want to blame someone, blame us, not Kahi. He's just too liberal/forgiving/tied to our will.

The fact that CQ has no particular objective, besides winning a 6 months long contest (with each day being written individually without timeskips) doesn't help much. Basecally, the votes are the main fuel, with a few events to break the routine. The Horror Mansion event was great, for it gave another objective, a pseudo-plot and the fastest update speed ever seen on THP.

It was more fun in the beggining, when there were just a few yukkuri. The story had a slice-of-life aspect to it, that cannot be enjoyed anymore due the amount of yukkuri. Some characters lie almost forgotten, because the we choose when and what to talk about with who, and open votes is traditionally a hard, usually undesireable, thing for most of THP.
>>156445

DQ is fun, much more than the other stories. Ignoring a few LOLSORANDOM votes, there is nothing wrong with it. And as shitty as Tabby's build is, it's still a valid build, and is also fun (as long as we don't need to roll charisma).
>> No. 156451

Kahi is a pretty open guy, you know. If you want to discuss something with him, or give him critics, you can go talk to him about it. Actually, yeah, you should go and talk to him on one of the spreadsheets, you can find him on the link posted on /words/. Unless, of course, all you're going to say is "hurr you suck durr" and don't discuss shit at all.

You will have to wait for him to have internet connection again, though. Currently he's only posting updates when he finds an open wi-fi.

If the problem are just the voters, then you could try to fix that by voting too. Nothing will change if you abandon it to the ones you believe to be at fault.

[X] Head into Town.


Bright and warm spring weather greets your party as you leave Keine’s little abode. The air is busy with birdsong and bees, and the scent of Keine’s well-kept flowerbeds is pleasantly potent.

You sneeze violently.

“Oh dear,” Keine says. “Are you allergic?”

Behind you, Duke sneezes violently.

Keine rounds on Cirno just as she’s craning her head back, about to contribute a manufactured sneeze of her own. Catching the schoolteacher’s eye, she reluctantly subsides.

Growing warm in your robes, you cram your hat into your magical pocket, then ball the robe into it as well, stuffing the neat, compact package into your pants pocket. Clad in trousers and silk shirt, you’re considerably more comfortable.

“That’s not gonna work,” Cirno says dourly, guessing your intent. “Gensokyo is small! Everybody knows everybody!”

“He’s with Keine,” Mokou replies. “Kind, conservative, insistent on convention and courtesy.”

A beat.

“Or was,” you and Mokou say simultaneously. She puffs out the side of her mouth at you, thunder thief. Keine silently steps between you two like she’s policing rowdy children on recess.

As your party strolls into downtown proper, few take note of you, instead exchanging polite greetings with Keine and cautious ones with Mokou. As you suspected, lack of a hat and presence of pants renders you unnoticeable. Unremarkable. Secondary. Social niceties paid to Mokou threaten your analysis, but given how perfunctory they are (as if for Keine’s benefit,) you feel your conclusion is sound.

The beautiful day has drawn denizens in droves, clogging the boardwalks and cluttering the street. Keine steers your party through side-streets and back alleys with the unconscious expertise of a life-long resident and you soon find yourself in a crowded bazaar, makeshift tables and stalls crammed with fresh produce and hand-made everything. Keine’s already made it halfway down the street, crowds parting for her politely, before you recognize the place. You’ve been through here before. At high speed. Or drunk. Or punch-drunk. Or just acting drunk at a slow amble.

The Unguided tour of Gensokyo. Now there’s a thought. You could sell tickets.

Keine stops so abruptly that you cleverly crash into her back. She raises a hand to silence your sputtering, then points up the street. “Dragon curse it. There’s Eirin.”

Not fifty feet distant stands Eirin Yagokoro, local pharmacist, doctor and alchemical mastermind from the Moon. Her two-tone, red/blue outfit stands out, and you note shoppers afford her a wide berth. On occasional strides she moves from booth to booth, sharp blue eyes evaluating the wares with swift efficiency.

“Hmm,” you mutter gravely. “Smart and dangerous.”

“No shit, professor.” Mokou snorts. “What gave it away, the doctor’s hat or the bow?”

“.... yes,” you grunt. “Well, let’s go cha-”

Keine collars you immediately. “No,” she says.

“I thought-”

“Not if we can help it,” Keine says sotto voice. “Reisen’s far less... subtle.”

“Shopping with a longbow is subtle?

“Around here? Where’ve you been the last three days, under a rock?” Mokou retorts.

Eirin stops by a small table laden with assorted polished stones. Some shaped into shallow bowls or dishes, others creek stones with holes in them, and yet others simply polished stones of various hues. But it’s a small, ugly little lump of gray that catches the pharmacists’ eye. She stoops over the table, snatching up the stone for closer inspection, her mouth forming a terse query.

The proprietor, lost somewhere under a huge-brimmed straw hat, answers.

Surprise sweeps Eirin’s visage like the sunrise, untarnished and pure. Then thirty-odd rocks, the table and the proprietor’s boot sweep her face airborne, her body trailing after. The simple, clean beauty of a parabolic arc is much better appreciated from a less intimate vantage point, and appreciate it you do; watching enraptured as Ms. Subtle Alchemical Supergenius impacts a stack of ripe melons head-first.

The rock-seller, hat discarded, looks like a perfectly ordinary old man wielding a perfectly ordinary oak table with unordinary power. Crowds of shoppers vanish like mist before a gale with practiced ease as the old man springs across the street rabbit-swift, bringing his table down on Eirin with a sharp crack of splintering timber.

“We should-”

“Ssssh,” you and Mokou say in unison, watching the spectacle with religious devotion. Eirin gets her feet soon enough, but there’s something indescribably wonderful about watching the mysterious moon medico striking dramatic attack poses while thoroughly splattered with fruity pulp.

“Damn you both!” Keine hisses, finally yanking you both backwards off your feet by your collars. You and Mokou both watch the diminishing battle as long as possible as Keine drags you away bodily to a more discreet location.

“Mokou?” you ask. “Have you ever...?”

“Never,” Mokou replies dreamily. “So beautiful. I should introduce him to Kaguya.”

An affronted chuff sounds near Keine’s knees, and she looks down at Duke’s canine form, currently a handsome gray wolf, giving her Serious Eyes.

“Shush,” she says defensively. “Danmaku duels are non-lethal to start with and people know to clear out when a serious one erupts.”

“What about the property damage?” you ask.

“There’s a compensation fund for incidents. People like Remilia or the Moryia gals will chip in when possible. As much to curry favor as from actual philanthropy, truth be known, but it works.”

Something about that strikes you odd, but far less than the old man bitchslapping Eirin up and down the marketplace with an oak table, so you let it slide. “So, what now?”

“Youmu follows her schedule religiously; I was going to catch her shopping, but-”

A long roll of staccato whipcracks sound from the marketplace, followed by the low whoomph of explosion-displaced air.

“-that,” Keine finishes. “She’ll likely visit Kirisame’s shop before she’s done, I see her in there all the time.”

“Yeah, who isn’t?” Mokou grumps. “He collects all the weird crap the freaks adore.”

“Mokou!”

“Eh,” you mutter, not eager for Zuul Two – Danmaku Boogaloo. ‘Course, Youmu’s the one most in the know.

“Reisen’s the one harder to find,” Moku continues. “What with...”

Another blast sounds from down the street.

“-that, and last night, she won’t be sitting around dozing, at least. She’s in actual danger right now. Youmu, she ain’t.”

“Isn’t,” Keine says automatically. “Reisen won’t be far from her master, either. And you’ve got some sort of tracking spell to find her, right?” she asks you. “The way you found me yesterday?”

You nod hastily before anybody can ask or volunteer details about the exact methods employed yesterday. “Yeah, easy.”

“So let’s split up, already,” Mokou grumps. “Gawdam, you could jaw forever about the stupidest shit. No wonder you get along.”

Is it the length of the correction you don't like? Or perhaps the repetition of the exact same message? I can understand those and can try to improve.

Regarding disruption, I assume you mean the post being off-topic. Where possible, I try to vote, unless I already have.

If what's got you angry is telling other people they need to type better, I'm afraid you'll have to deal with it.

>As your party strolls into downtown proper, few take note of you, instead exchanging polite greetings with Keine and cautious ones with Mokou. As you suspected, lack of a hat and presence of pants renders you unnoticeable. Unremarkable. Secondary. Social niceties paid to Mokou threaten your analysis, but given how perfunctory they are (as if for Keine’s benefit,) you feel your conclusion is sound.

Hey guys. So, in Deme's OTHER quest I'm the guy who keeps a nice little file with all the posts and quest-related materials for easy browsing. Since a lot of people like that and download it, I thought I'd do it here, too. So here it is, up to date.

http://www.mediafire.com/?2wtiuo1ne9m48f8

I THINK I grabbed all the fanart as I went along, but if anyone notices anything I'm missing, I'd appreciate it being posted.

So, uh, can we be friends?

These are people from Demetrious' other quest (Strike Witches Quest)

We're missing our beloved Demetrious and would like him back thank you very much.

If you're interested in more delicious Demetrious writing, please check out the SWQ archive at http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=strike+witches

I'm not really a toe hoe person, but Dem does a good enough job of making things accessible, which I greatly appreciate.

Also, "bouncing" is the PC's (a pilot) "signature" combat maneuver. Common panic responses to tense and ridiculous situations are to abandon all hope of reason and either Crazy Ivan or Bounce the target.

Bouncing is also a valid move in aerial combat. In the first thread the PC "bounces" superior officers returning on a transport plane. He then manages to outmaneuver a witch, break off his combat patrol early, brag about his success in catching the witches off guard in a simple, non-magical fighter plane to his barmates, get caught by his CO, and just barely sneak out of getting court-marshaled. When the impossible needs to be made possible, there is one option:

Bounce.

Her father's shop. She ran away to become a western oriental magician.
>> No. 157931
>>157906

That's cool. I was just having a mental image of Marisa behind the counter in a magic-themed shop; with a roof in the shape of her awesome hat, selling off magical trinkets, spell scrolls, ancient tomes and assorted Marisa-themed merchandise (Marisa dolls, Marisa action figures, Mini-Mini Hakkero attachment with REAL

MASTER SPARK ACTION, brooms, etc.); all the while lazerin' foolish shoplifters in the face.

Also, the usual "You Break It, You Buy It" sign is replaced with "You Break It, I Danmaku A Laser In Your Face, THEN You Buy It" sign.

*sigh*, as usual, my imaginations prove superior to the real deal.

But then again, Touhou is mostly made out of Fanon, so MAYBE...

Marisa's house does double as a sort of magic/odd jobs shop in canon... it's just that you don't know when she'll be home or not. The three fairies actually hired her to take care of their tsukino problem.
>> No. 157989

I'm pretty sure it only doubles as a magic shop because the term fence is considered too uncouth for polite company.

Just for the sake of reference for our new friends from /tg/, the general usage of names, trips, and sages in regard to THP have been handily summed up by somebody else here: >>157927

The rules, not that any of you need them, are here: >>/gensokyo/6052

Also we're a bit more strict than /tg/ when it comes to typing, just as a warning. I find I'm good as long as I give everything a once-over before posting.

Also one guy put his email in the email field, but I assume he's not from /tg/ since you guys don't do that either.

To wrap up, welcome to THP, hopefully you like AWiY and some of the other stories on the site.

And thanks, archivalfag. Your work is appreciated - in my case doubly, since I've started SWQ. It's pretty good.

Yeah, /jp/-style posting, if what's currently on it is typical. I'm afraid I'm not that familiar with /jp/, since I came here after we split off.

1. It was mentioned in all of three or four posts. The only reason it continues to be mentioned is because people (you) are being so butthurt about it.

No clue. It's not like this kind of thing is identifying; different name and trip each time means it can only serve to annoy those with OCD.

Which is fine by me.
>> No. 158235
>>158216
Because the only reason people do it outside of the story threads they write is to attention whore. There is also the risk of people blindly copying whatever they vote on.

>>158225
That's more like being a far bigger nuisance (to put it politely) than normally conceived.

Please cease this tripfaggotry before you make an ungodly mess.
