Another idea -- I suppose there aren't many cigarettes in Gensokyo ... but there's just something about this mental image I've got of a Mokou vs Kaguya confrontation, Kaguya facing away, Mokou tossing down a cigarette and grinding it out with foot ...

Something I wrote in my story isn't a far cry from that...

Quote
Mokou pulls a pack of cigarettes from her pocket. She pulls a cigarette out of the pack, ignites one of her fingers, and lights it. She holds the pack out to Cirno, ?Want one??

Idea that came from me expanding on my short story I wrote before with Tewi becoming infected with the rabies virus and then going on a rampage killing (and eating) Reisen before being put down by Mokou. Unfortunately, the bloodshed doesn't end there, as it turns out Tewi attacked a number of other rabbits during her time of going batshit insane, which leads to those rabbits becoming infected with the 'Inaba Lyssavirus' with the virus rapidly spreading through out Eientei like wildfire. It would seem that it is only a matter of time before it makes the jump to other regions of Gensokyo and ultimately bring about the largest pandemic the oriental land has ever seen...

I shit you not, I had the same idea a year ago. Only mine involved faeries and the rage virus from 28 Days Later. I'll see if I can find the post, it's on the old board.

EDIT: Oi.

Quote from: Apotheosis, 10/30/07
For the most part, faeries have very primitive thought processes. Their brains are locked on a constant cycle of "Eat-sleep-reproduce", with the occasional interjection of "Defend yourself". This mirrors most conventional animals.

Then there are those lucky few who are capable of higher, almost human-like thought. While it seems preposterous-almost ridiculous-that a dull-witted creature like Cirno can be capable of anything resembling "normal" cognitive expression, one must remember that the same "dull-witted creature" can create art, a skill not found in typical faerie societies. Granted, this art consists of frogs encased in ice, but that is neither here nor there.

Today, the faerie known as Daiyousei was experiencing a higher thought. This concept, at first glance, is thought to be quite primal in nature. The reality, however, is that it takes a lot of guts and a surprisingly large amount of brainpower to decide that it is time to run for one's life. Especially if one is running from a dear friend.

As she tore through the bushes and branches of the Forest of Magic, Daiyousei contemplated what she had just witnessed.

She was looking for Cirno, she remembered. They had a full day planned: freezing frogs down by the lake, throwing them at people, and repeating the process until the sun went down or someone killed them, whichever came first. When she came across Cirno, however, she was stooping over the body of the fay known as Lily White. "Hey, Cirno!" she had yelled. Cirno turned to face her, and Daiyousei knew instantly that something was very wrong with her friend.

Cirno's face and clothes were smeared with blood. Her hair was messy and dirty. A large lump of gristle was hanging out of her mouth. Lily's vivisected corpse laid behind her, staring at the sky, her typical jovial smile replaced with a look of abject horror. But, most terrifying of all, Cirno's eyes were bright red, as if blood had pooled and coagulated in the whites.

There was a moment in which the two looked at each other. Then Cirno rushed Daiyousei. Daiyousei ran into the forest, screaming.

They chased each other for a while. Eventually, Daiyousei ran out of stamina and collapsed against a tree. Cirno approached the fallen faerie, growling like a feral beast. Daiyousei attempted to appeal to the faerie's sense of mercy: "No...Cirno...please...it's Daiyousei! Remember?" By this time, Daiyousei was sobbing. Mercy, apparently, was  not known to the ice faerie, as Cirno drew ever closer. Daiyousei looked up into Cirno's eyes. Cirno grabbed a clump of Daiyousei's hair. Daiyousei continued pleading with her. "Please, no...don't...I'm your friend-" The last thing the faerie felt was Cirno's sharp teeth ripping into her neck, stifling her last screams of pain.

Hours passed. In the gloom of the forest laid the body of Daiyousei. Cirno had spared her. Apparently, she had eaten her fill of Lily White and, having no further desire to feed off of her former friend, moved on.

Daiyousei's corpse rose from the ground. A large hunk of flesh was missing from her neck. Her face showed no emotion.

But, most terrifying of all, Daiyousei's eyes were bright red, as if blood had pooled and coagulated in the whites.

Cirno had fulfilled her needs. In doing so, she created another creature like her: a creature that knows no pain, no fear, with boundless stamina, and an insatiable, primal desire to do just one thing:

Feed.

Over the next few weeks, Cirno and Daiyousei would create more of them. Soon tens of faeries would be afflicted, then hundreds, and then thousands, and soon almost every faerie in Gensoyko was infected. As most of the faeries who were attacked didn't die, the natural automatic reproduction process common to all species of faeries was not engaged. They ran out of faeries to feed upon.

They began to attack humans...

I guess it's true. Great minds DO think alike! :V

Demour402's A better tomorrow is a sucky doujin.

CORE - Touhou Edition

Youkai Mountain faces it most destructive eruption ever with the awakening of the native Mountain God, which is Kanako's little sister, a Yasaka.
That is only however on the surface, something that threatens to doom Gensokyo's landscape in magma flow is something much larger, attaching with their previous encounter with the Komeiji and the 3 legged raven Utsuho, a devastating secret to keep from shame.

Someone is responsible, but before that a team of experts must dive through layers of molten rock, to stop the eruption at its core and destroy the source of the eruption, which a Yasaka is supposedly causing. This team of experts are willy, hyper active, overly confident and one of them cares more about lusting after her private love than the mission.

Will they come through?

I've been toying with the idea of Reisen mangling the shit out of Tewi. Bullied moe only goes so far before it becomes tiresome, and for me it ran out long ago.
Added to the fun: Tewi is a youkai, so she'll get better. And then Reisen can do it all over again.

Hmm. I'm trying to come up with an English name for individual danmaku-bullets, since the principle of creating them is universal in my fanfic-world, and they wouldn't necessarily be called "bullets" in the Western world (while danmaku as a whole is specifically an Asian martial art).

I think the problem with Danmaku is that is that... it's too general, covering bullets and lasers and everything... I'm not sure how to classify them and i've decided to treat it as a phrase to describe the 'battle' with the Spellcard rules ya noe? Like Zun Said, it'll never be a 3D fighter game like daybreak.. thou if Tasofro would bring that out...

Well, my earlier post has a somewhat cohesive explanation for how that all "works" in-universe (if not in an actual 3D game), I just want something distinctly Western to call the bullets. This is for a story I'm working on which takes place almost entirely outside of Gensokyo and is mostly in the English-speaking world. "Bullets" doesn't seem satisfactory to me; nor does e.g. "magic missile" for some reason.

Ever tried using a Thesaurs? It's fairly useful in these situations...or whatever.

imo Bullet is pretty much as western as you can get...

Re: Creative Musings and Inspiration (Ideas thread)
« Reply #77 on: May 30, 2009, 06:34:35 PM »
I tried using a thesaurus; problem is, it uses modern definitions of bullet, missile, etc., and since this is "if you can use magic at all, you can do it," the etymology would trace back for centuries.

Hmm ... etymology. Now there's a place to start ...

I'm irritated because I've been building up an idea for an epic story for a couple of weeks now, but I don't honestly think I'm good enough at writing to make something of it.

In short, the main plot is this: Since their appearance in Gensokyo, the Moriya Shrine's thirst for faith and power has gone unquenched. They turn to any and all means necessary to convert the local youkai to their faith, 'exorcising' any who would refuse (read: witch hunting). In self defense the Hakurei shrine has had no choice but to resort to similar methods, and as a result Gensokyo descends into a crusade between the two Shrines, each one attempting to destroy the other.

The story starts with a dazed Momizi waking up to see Sanae looking down on her. Sanae wants Momizi in particular to join the Moriya Shrine officially, claiming her exceptional sight would allow her to be an excellent scout against potential Hakurei insurgents. Momizi asks what would happen if she refused: Sanae points out the chain bound to her leg and the metal ball being held precariously above the lake by some nameless fairies. Momizi knows exactly why they've chosen her, though - they know her connections to Aya, an underground journalist who shows up the lies in Moriya propaganda. She refuses, and unsurprisingly Sanae tells the fairies to drop the ball and leaves Momizi to drown.

Trapped at the bottom of the lake, all hope seems lost for Momizi until a kappa appears in the nick of time and jams some sort of breathing device in her mouth. Picking the lock on the chain, she leads Momizi to her grotto in the hope of keeping her away from the Moriya squads. She introduces herself as Nitori, a local engineer who never saw an interest in any sort of religion and disapproved of the Moriya's methods. After hearing about Momizi's imminent execution she thought it only right to come to her aid.

The two discuss the situation for a while, angry that they are so powerless against the system. Suddenly, someone knocks the door - enough to shock Nitori, since she usually never gets visitors. Opening it slowly in case it's an intruder, she is surprised to find a maid offering her an invitation to a social gathering at the distant Scarlet Devil Mansion. Not exactly the most social person Nitori refuses, but a knife held at her throat immediately tells her it's not optional. The maid comments that she knows about Nitori's work against the Moriya shrine, and that's why the mistress asked for her personally. Reluctantly Nitori agrees, but Momizi insists that she comes along as well - given that she's supposed to be dead she can hardly stay around Youkai Mountain. The maid agrees, saying 'An enemy of Moriya is a friend of ours'.

On the trip to the SDM, Nitori and Momizi ponder whether they've just been enlisted by the Hakurei shrine. Taking a boat across the lake where the mansion is located, they find themselves fellow passengers alongside a young swordswoman and her kimono-wearing, fan-wielding mistress. Momizi attempts to start conversation with the samurai, considering herself somewhat skilled with a blade, but the girl is too absorbed in polishing her weapons to notice.

On the island, a fight has broken out between a girl in suspenders and a useless-looking rabbit, and the arriving crew have to break it up so that there's still a mansion for them to visit. The maid who invited them to the mansion leads them all to the dining hall where they will meet with the mistress of the house.

On their arrival, the group are confused to be welcomed by a young blue-haired girl, introducing herself as Remilia Scarlet. Mokou, the girl in suspenders, begins to laugh uncontrollably, thinking she's the target of a practical joke. Ignoring her, Remilia thanks the remainder for arriving and proceeds to explain why she called them all together.

Remilia, too, is tired of the war between the two shrines of Gensokyo, but it isn't normally possible to interfere without picking some sort of side. However, she's come up with an ingenious idea - play the role of two separate groups, each one helping one of the two shrines. The intention would be for mutual destruction from both sides, with both groups having almost telepathic knowledge of the other's actions and striking at their weakest points. One group would be represented by Remilia herself, and the other by the kimono-wearing noblewoman, Yuyuko Saigyouji. Obviously, the members of these groups cannot be revealed for reasons of privacy (or at least, that's their excuse).

Each of the invited members has their own specialty:
Nitori: Master engineer, and also relatively unknown
Youmu: Greatest swordswoman in Gensokyo
Reisen: Long-range specialist, trained in a variety of firearms
Mokou: Demolitions expert
Momizi: Excellent scout
Where necessary, the denziens of the Scarlet Devil Mansion will provide the team with whatever support they need. Aya also shows up now and again to give them any useful info she comes across, because 'you guys give me something fun to write about'.

So the plot basically revolves around the SDM and Hakugyokurou screwing both shrines over, but all the while looking like the two greatest mercenary groups ever invented. Too bad I'm a pretty crappy writer and this is too complicated a piece for me to ever handle...>_>

Possibility: Mugetu and Gengetu are "dream-beings" who can only exist in dreams, and dreamworlds such as Mugenkan and the site of LLS Extra (which I'm calling "Getukan").

In fact (I just got this idea after reading LLS Extra's translated script and seeing how confused Reimu was at being there): maybe Reimu simply dreamed the Extra stage, her dream somehow transporting her directly to Mugetu and Gengetu's world. Marisa seemed to be more deliberate there, though -- maybe she found a gateway there or something ...

Thinking about writing a slice of life, school oriented short story. Dunno what I'll call it, but after reading Azumanga for like the 100th time, I felt compelled to write a Touhou fiction centered around the same concept.

Spoiler:
This was, at first, hentai fiction involving a Janitor banging Yuugi, the idiot P.E teacher, but I kinda veered off course as I thought more into it.
