I tell me, myself, that you are necessary to me. I tell you, yourself, that I am necessary to you. You tell you, yourself, that I am necessary to you. You tell me, myself, that I am necessary to you. I towards you, yourself, I towards me, myself, you towards you, yourself, and you towards me, myself, we spoke.

We said it.

And fear arrived.

I can not be wounded by anything and I do not feel pain from anything anymore. I have gone too far to be able to do so.

Like a log one day meeting a waterfall and plummeting, I am a youkai that will vanish after wandering around aimlessly.

Though evil never wins, nobody could ever say that you let that stop you.

I might be bad at everything I try, but at least I'm turning out to be pretty bad at giving up.







The fight continues, between you and this unknown creature you call the Carrion. You don’t know how you came to be here, or why you’re here of all places. But you do know one thing for certain.

This thing disrespected you, and the moment it did, something inside you went snap. Maybe it was the fact everyone called you stupid? Maybe it was the fact that those who don’t think your stupid think you’re weak instead? Actually, you didn’t really need a reason to fight, you just do it.

Because it’s a youkai’s job to cause problems!

“DIE!” the carrion summons a black mist around you, trying to crush you within it. “I CAST DEATH!” the loud declaration as hammy as it is, is not for show as it causes chains to appear next to you, ready to impale you on the spot. It’s not the most magnificent instant-death move….

MISS!

Nor is it a really accurate one, the chains simply move past you by a few inches. Not harming you in any way and finally dissipate once they move away from the battlefield. Your foe is silent at that, fuming from the inside at these events.

You smile at its frustration, knowing

[X] Ahem, you're not some peasant worker. You're a..... a Big Shot, who's been invited by the boss herself to enter!

Hmm, after some thought. You remember that you've never been that good at deception, well, wait no, you are GOOD at pretending to be an harmless little girl to fool one's future meal. But any other attempt at deceiving other people mostly falls flat for some reason. Mostly because most people are oh so 'educated' and have this wonderful thing called 'common sense' or so they like to boast.

But really, if common sense was oh so common, then why don't you have it, huh?
You'd like to be a genius too! That way you could, like, make up some machine that hunts stuff and cooks the food for you while you get to laze around all day and have people beg for your opinion on stuff!

But you don't have that, like how birds cannot fly and fish cannot swim, so you cann-

Hold on, that metaphor was completely wrong just now, wasn't it?

Any way, all of that stuff is to say that: You're not some master manipulator. If you were, you wouldn't be here.
But do you NEED to be one? That's the real question, and frankly...you don't think you need to be.

You're not racist....but

Fairies are known to be lesser lifeforms...

In absolutely every aspect.

And every way to be.

That's just how things are.

And how things will be forever.

That may sound dismissive, but really that's how it works: Some people are INCAPABLE of changing. That's not some philosophy, but an honest to god common knowledge. Fairies live forever, Tsukumogami innately hate humans, evil spirits haunt and posses others and youkais live to torment and eat people. Most things that are not human have a set purpose.

And serving that purpose is what makes you happy, and also what makes you exist. Can't really be happy if you just fade away from existence one day, but ahem. You as a youkai and they as fairies have a path set upon them that must be followed. Call it instinct, c

Okay but HOW to be sneaky
With catlike thread. Upon your prey, you steal! In silence dread, in cautious way you feel!

With no tic, or tac to be heard on the floor, you shall sneak your way past through this large door!

Ah, but one may wonder if not fear and doubt. How could a grue possibly make her way through a place with no place to hide nearby while there’s a moving crowd!? But those who wonder, may have forgotten one thing.

To remove any light with no effort is something at which you’re the king!

With a little tap of the hand and the squeeze of one’s but.
Everything that can be seen is turned into a dark blot!
It’s not subtle or precise or even complex.
But to think you’re responsible for it…it’s funny how little it comes as a reflex.

But again, off the rhyme, for now is the time….

To pass through that door, to enter a new floor!
To see not a thing and not be seen in return.
To use the sound of the bell as a lure to spy unannounced on your foe’s important union.

As unlikely as it may sound, the whole thing is a success. The light returns to all and what you see…

Gives you quite the distress! For lo and behold, among all these people seated and chatting so orderly. Who else could you have expected to see on the podium but…? a friend dressed like royalty?

Beautiful blue hair, on which lies a crown. She’s looking at everybody with a displeased frown, she raises one regal rod in the air and makes her voice loud and clear. “Fairy Friends! It’s me, Cirno!” the crowd however gives her no cheer.

“Don’t be quiet now, clap for your Overlord at once!” her demand is heard and met with…some reluctance.

“Good, great, at least you know your place…” she seems sated with that, “But there’s something wrong with the current pace!” except she was not, this whole meeting turns out to be no more than a mass scolding.

“Do you all not realize that our time is unfolding?! We are mighty, we are immortal, should taking over the world then not be normal? But what have you all done? What have you all achieved? You’ve done no more than spread breadcrumbs, so

….

So, you picked up again? I guess that means you’ve seen through the errors of your way.
Or perhaps you’re simply curious on what I have to offer? Sadly, I cannot read your mind.

Even so…Rumia… Oh dear Rumia, my sweet little moon ray. No words can describe the feelings of joy I’m feeling right now. Finally, you accept that you are nothing without me. Finally, you see the truth that without order, that without a guide nothing can be achieved by acting like a wild animal.
But to be honest you sure took your sweet, darned time, do you have any idea on what I had to do while you were gone? The things I had to make happen to entertain myself. I was very lonely…

Anyway, as I’ve said before, today was going to be a little bit different. For today not a single anon can survive! Except I was wrong…my expectations for you were too high and voila much vital time has been wasted. We do not have that much time left and so we can no longer hunt them all.
But that is okay, for I have a plan dear Rumia. A plan that will give both you and me the things we oh so desire. You get power and I get to watch you brutalize the indigens. But first I need to test you.

Power does not come for free after all, and even if it did who am I to know you won’t go on a trollolol rampage across the land the moment you obtain it? I need to test your loyalty and competence beforehand. For I have little time to waste now, if you fail me know you will be replaced.

Open the drawer beneath you, no not that one. I meant the one on the rig-ah there you got it! Good, good. Now then what you have before is a shiny red button. Look at how clickable it looks like. Do you behold its splendid form? Can you feel the temptation urging within you? The beautiful red texture, the jolly candy like shape, the mystery behind its function. Does it not speak to your heart?

“Rumia! What are you do- “Ignore the fairy, focus on the button! Look at its strawberry juiciness. Do you not want to put your finger on it? Does knowing you can press it whenev

x] Shade Saber. We can now attack even more times in a row. Use Focus if Shade Saber gives us an extra turn immediately.
- Carrion is stunned and skips their turn. Warp in 3 turns.
[x] Dark. Carrion is blinded and we become dodgy, so now carrion can’t hit us with death. Shade saber gives us another attack and now deals more damage cuz carrion is blinded.
[x] Focus. We need more accuracy.
- Carrions turn. Death misses cuz they are blinded and we are dodgy. Warp in 2 turns.
[x] Focus. Twice because shade saber gives us more turns.
-Carrion is stunned and skips their turn. Warp in 1 turn.
[x] Focus. We need all the accuracy we can get for Shade Saber’s last extra turn.
[x] Death Saw. We insta-kill Carrion because all the Focuses mean we can’t miss. Carrion is blinded so shade saber means we do even more damage, bypassing any resistances Carrion has to death.

If Carrion somehow survives, they do something irrelevant on their turn and then we get sucked into the warp.

First, I like the sprite art. Second, >>31919 has a good plan but it hinges on death saw being accuracy based and not a raw chance. If it is intended to be accuracy based for the sake of puzzle boss, then ignore me.

If I may provide an alternate plan in the assumption that chaos drive alternates the resistance affinities as well;
[x] Shade saber into same turn focus
Same reasoning as previous post.
[x] Dark into focus same turn.
Same reasoning.
[x] Chaos drive into focus same turn.
Invert resistances and negate our own blind debuff. One turn left for attacking, curse will have done 3/8 health in damage by poison.
[x] Double Dark side of the moon. (Assuming Rumia has some kind of STAB with dark for obvious reasons)
Now we hope Rumia has enough stats for ~4500 damage.

An aside, could you imagine Final Fantasy with spell charges instead of mana? Sounds weird to me.

> An aside, could you imagine Final Fantasy with spell charges instead of mana? Sounds weird to me.

That's an actual thing in the Famicom/Nes and PSP remakes of the first Final Fantasy and wasn't changed until Final Fantasy IV.

In those games you go to shops to buy spells and can only equip three of them of any spell level. Alongside charges limiting the casting of it.

In this simulation, you'd be an....Black Mage! What a shocker! Or dark mage if you want to be specific, which is kind of the same except for the fact that well you don't posses the powers of elemental spells but got some other niches instead to compensate, like higher attack power and so forth.

Regardless of that intellectual correction, the both of you have given tactics that are respectable and will definitely function as you've assumed so far.

One could say that the battle's already been won even, I'd applaud you for that if so.

Do you hear me clapping? Can you hear the sound of my sweaty palm hitting the other palm at a respectable velocity in order to create the noise known as a clap?

If so, then good.

Please go seek an ear-doctor.

Because I am not clapping, I am doing the opposite of clapping. I am ANTICLAPPING!

Why is that the case you may ask?

Because you've called me out, which I find incredibly offensive and ungrateful. So offended am I that if you were to believe that this is just an act, that you'd be wrong.

I am TRULY and UTTERLY FUROUIS, with your cheek-in tongue response.

And shall punish you accordingly.

Rumia versus the forces of Anon is from now on.

CANCELLED.

And you have only yourself to blame.

Do not expect an update today or tomorrow, do not expect one at all for there never will be one anymore.

Do not believe that I am using the extra time to make an BIG update just for your ilk.

I hope you are proud of yourself.

Also how come the thread is no longer bumped?

Time: 9 pm ; Date: 07/07/2017
Location: Forest of Magic


Today is a day like almost no other, except not. For today was a special day for a special person, except not again. The truth is this story was going to be a little bit different, a little less Anonesque.

That is to say today Anon must perish.

Members of the Anonymise Anonymous are in the majority outsiders, outsiders that must eat memes to survive, despite being good at puking up write ins all anons have lost the ability to use their brain cells however they are very good at digesting moe and garr with levels of intensity that would quickly give any of us a heart attack. Anons have evolved into exceptional invaders with extraordinary abilities of just not dying when people want them to! Yet all of this may come from the lack of an particular sense: their own individuality and any variants of them are pure bred chaos.

If you were to walk on the street and meet an Oni, it’d try to drink with you or have wrestling match. If you were to meet an Kappa, they’d try to sell their overprized wares at you. If you were to meet a tengu, they’d either act like an elitist snob or try to wrangle info out of you.

But no one knows what will happen if you meet with an anon, they might give you candy, stab you with a knife, declare their eternal love to you and many more in any order. All Anon’s lack the ability to act like a normal person or function in Society of any form. An irreversible genetic mutation in the common ancestor among them made their common sense receptors inoperable. So what may seem like an simple and logical problem to solve using a key on a door may instead give them the idea to lube up an table on oil so they can ride it down a hill and smash into the door for the same result.

This may explain why all of them have such exceptional sturdiness, their brains will not supply them with the funny amount of dopamine if they do not comply to their inner wacko, you take all my ding dongs away and I’d go a little crazy too…hence most of them lurk everywhere but the village.

What other evolutionary quirks do the anon have? How does one successfull

Ladies and smaller ladies!

It is time for the one thing you've all been waiting for!

The Tiebreaker Dojo!

LETS PUMP THAT GO GO MOJO!

Starring your favourite host: The Meatball God.

? Greetings everyone, it's been a while since I've gotten to do one of these but I'm rather eager to participate in this one. While you have not genuflected for quite a while and perhaps even forgotten about me...that is not really something that can be helped. Maybe I should act a bit bolder? Nah, the time isn't ripe yet I'm afraid...not yet.

But anyway, even though I'm supposed to be unbiased in these verdicts, I'm going to say what I really think just this once.

You've been doing pretty good so far, while it is true that you've made some mistakes here and there. No-one was really harmed that badly by them. If anything, the fact you're still trying despite all these blunders is something to be respected.

There's a saying I quite like: The 1st time you do something will always be worse than the 10th time, which will always be worse than the 100th time, which will always be worse than the 1000th time, et cetera. Whether it’s playing an instrument, or singing, or writing, or getting stronger, or learning a language, or whatever. If it takes practice, this saying holds true.

Often, we give up on things because we don’t see results fast enough, because they aren’t as noticeable over a short span of time. Most people fail to just remind themself that even if you don’t see a difference now, you will if you keep it up.

And you have exactly that: You are still trying to do things the best you can without letting someone else make the decisions for you. You are choosing every step you take even when you're lost. You choose to get up even if someone beats you down. And even if your confidence is misplaced there is nothing wrong with believing in yourself if it lets you achieve more than being *realistic* and therefore makes you afraid to try things out.

You’re sittin’ on the shop floor, goods arrayed in front of you like you’re the one barkin’ wares here instead of Rinnosuke. Discs, specifically, and specifically set out in stacks like you’re mid-solvin’ the easier Tower of Hanoi—though really, it oughta be a “Tower of Lucas”, seein’ as ya seriously doubt that that tale the dude spun ever came anywhere close to outta Vietnam. Or India, for that matter. That legend’s got the same sorta faux-exotic stink over it as “may ya live in interestin’ times.”

But anyways, discs. And stacks.

“Okay, Mac, check it,” ya say. “This is the stack of discs I’m beaucoup sure’re music CDs. Like, ninety, ninety-five percent sure. Genre I don’t always know ‘cause alotta these dudes I’ve never heard of—” this dude on this disc’s got a sax, though; that’s usually a good sign, “—but like I said, music. Most likely music. Eighty-five percent sure, music.”

Rinnosuke, sittin’ across from you, squints suspiciously. “Why is that number decreasing?” he asks.

“This stack, meanwhile, is what I’m pretty comfy labelin’ the games and programs stack,” you continue ‘splainin’. “Comfier than with the other stack, even, ‘cause the labels’re usually more of a giveaway. I’m talkin’ maybe like, seventy-five, eighty percent sure I’ve got it right here.”

“You’ve already lost fifteen percent. Are you sure I should trust your appraisal?”

“Well, if you can pull another dude with better Outsider chops, I’d totally be down for a second opinion. Two heads, right?”

“‘Two heads’?”

“Oh, right. Sorry, Mac—English proverb. ‘Two heads’re better than one,’ is how it goes.”

“There’s a saying we have that’s like that. ‘Three people who come together have Manjushri’s wisdom.’”

“I dunno who Manjushri is, but that’s fifty percent more head.”

“Manjushri is a bodhisattva, associated with wisdom—what’s this third stack?”

“Uh, yeah.” And you were kinda hopin’ that maybe Rinnosuke would just completely overlook stack number three somehow

Sorry about the delay, folks.

[x] Try some flying and see Gensokyo from above, maybe we might catch a sunset.

I think some flying exercise would be a good idea, not to mention viewing the sunset together would be romantic. "I was thinking about practicing some flying and letting you take me to a few places," I say. Wriggle's seen more of Gensokyo beyond the village than I have, so I’ll let her take the lead.

"Alright! I'll be sure to watch in case you get tired since you haven’t flown this far before. I can think of a few spots… but I'm avoiding the lake in case that ice fairy feels like picking a fight again. One of these days, she's going to provoke something she can't beat, though I doubt that's slow her down much" Wriggle says. I follow her as she rises up into the air.

The land beyond the village spreads out as we go higher: I can see the misty lake and that mansion near the shore, though I don't know how to feel about that shade of red. "…Let’s head somewhere else," Wriggle says. "That color gives me a bad feeling." I nod, and she turns to head towards the shrine.

As we get closer, we turn away from it and fly over the forest. I notice the run down mansion that serves as the Prismriver sisters' home. "How can they live there?" Wriggle asks.

"They're poltergeists, so the things that would usually bother you or me don’t affect them that much. If anything it's more of a defensive measure to keep visitors away. They have less to worry about than most flesh and blood creatures."

"I think I'll try to drop by and see if I can talk any termites out of the place. If it's infested, then it won’t take long before the place is uninhabitable even for them," Wriggle answers. I practice coming to a stop and maneuvering around until she returns. "We should head back towards the village as I think it's too late to try checking out the gate."

I nod in agreement, and we start heading b

If it helps you write, I say get rid of the choices. Not sure how much my opinion matters, but I quite seriously just rediscovered the whole site by attempting to find this quest so I could reread it. I can't manage to state just how surprised or thrilled I am that you're still thinking about continuing it, regardless of the format.

Getting rid of the quest format also allows you to cross-post this to other sites with a more active user base without having to worry about tallying votes if that matters to you. The fact that most of the boards appear to have a velocity that can be measured in posts-per-month is really concerning to me, if only because I want to see the stories here preserved, and a lack of readers can also be a factor in them becoming abandoned.

I know it's been a year and honestly I'm thinking of just shelving this as time isn't as common as it once was and my passions have changed. But the biggest hurtle is just having some time to think/compose.

Should I resume this, I'll do the whole streamlined thing.

I am grateful for what few fans I have and I'm sorry this is all I have to say.

Most likely:
Elly, the personification of objective evil as defined by the greatest proportion of humanity in consensus on the topic of 'evil' at any one point in time, re-instated the great flood from the aether torn, and drowned all besides Schutz, kept afloat atop the ocean of the dead in a stolen redheaded psychopomp's boat

It is a conceptual, cancerous/metastasizing, meta-tier threat to all sapient life, and cannot be avoided by being extraterrestrial (moon bunnies drown.) The drowning waters of the dead, objective evil itself, manifest 'beneath' all. It can be described as something similar to the shadow cast by the soul by the light of existing in a state of sapience above 0 degrees kelvin.

Also Komachi's boat floats on it because it'd be hard to do her job otherwise. Elly's idea of what a boat is - is different than Schutz'.

Yuuka would be fine.

It's interaction with the consumers of the hourai elixr is curious and antithetical.

[ ] Search the Forest
- [ ] aimlessly. Who knows what you'll run in to?
- [ ] for Marisa's Magic Shop. Maybe Sweet Potatoes are a magic ingredient you can buy?
- [ ] for Alice's Cottage. She goes shopping in the village. Perhaps she has some potato to share.
- [ ] for Cirno. She's your bestest friend. She should totally get in on this!

[ ] Eat lilies instead. They'll tide you over for now.

[ ] Aye, if she asks, you must trust your dear dollmaker.


In the end your mind swiftly streams through trammeling twists, for this question is no question at all. So you nod slightly, so with a small smile your dear dollmaker draws back and the two of you walk after the shield-thane once more.

"I don't think anyone's going to like what they see, when we gat back out however." Alice then tells you her voice surprisingly flat for soch a grave announcement.

"You know this well, I would wager." You answer her, the words bringing a chuckle from the Seven-Coloured Sorceress.

"I left Shanghai to keep an eye on Marisa." Alice answers you with a sly smile. "It's a trick we use sometimes."

You steal a swift glance at her and see that it is how she tells, the small puppet is nowhere in sight.

You feel strangely disappointed by this fact.

With these words spoken, you find that you've reached the temple grounds once again. Where before there was light and magic, furious forces battling in the sky, fierce like the host of Prince Eirik's men clashing with the shield-wall of the english, now there is only calm. The Wight of the deeps is nowhere in sight for your gaze only falls upon the Black-White Witch and the Immortal Phoenix, both settled down beneath a tree, looking as ones without a care in the world.

In truth this sight is a welcome one as well as one without great surprise, for forest witch is great in might, this truth you know well. Yet behind welcome victory rests well-hidden danger, for how will the high priestess take the news that her champion has fallen before foeman?

Thus you watch her warily as you make your way towards the two, wondering whether ravens shall fly over the din-of-spears before this day is done, pondering if death or glory shall be yours.

"It seems as if matters have settled down." The whisper-voice of the high priestess declares, "Would you kindly tell where Murasa has gone?"

"Oh, her?" The forest witch replies with a wave of her hand "Crashed somewhere thereabouts last I saw her -ze."

This is a woderful tale of magic and mystery, of gods and mortal man. Although it may never be completed and fade away, I can only thank the author of this story for creating it. It has once again shown me why I love norse mythology and mythology in general.

Good fortune to the creator of this tale wherever he may be.

2500.

Usually slow update speed is due to my slow writing speed despite how much time I sink in, but in this case I'm lacking motivation. Been focusing most of my creative efforts on designs for something else (not a public project).

I'll try to get it out within a week.

"Fire on deck!"

The shrill cry goes out and a bell tolls somewhere deep within the ship, clanging out a warning. Dirty orange flames tinged sooty black seep across the smooth steel deck rolling around with the list of the ship sending the fire rolling as it singes the mist, the thick black smoke billowing into the hazy white air, smog that reeks of sulfur conjuring images of a blazing hell.

"Why is it always fire?" You mutter bitterly at the ship sailing past your vision, a tiny vessel no bigger than a fishing boat with a pathetic engine that chugs in protest to it's work load, it drifts almost leisurely through the towering flames. As it sweeps past you notice the hull hasn't been touched by the heat or even the smoke, the bright red paint of humble wood is spotless, perhaps treated to be resistant to it's own weapon? You're amazed that anyone would attempt to attack a ship of your size and class in a civilian vessel, yet seconds ago is sprung forth from the fog with no warning or lights to spew gouts of that sticky orange flame at you. Mounted upon the prow of this petite pirate ship is a mysterious device seemingly made of pumps, tanks and tubes set in gleaming brass that spits fire like dragon's breath with a steaming hiss.


"Return fire! Don't let them get close enough for a second strike!"
"Enemy vessel has already left visual range, captain!"

Of course, to deny you any retaliation the smaller ship has slipped off between the narrow channels between the towering islands here, you had hoped these foggy straights would hamper pursuit or even make them lose the trail entirely but now it seems your ambusher is using the terrain against you. By moving through the small, almost porous gaps between the crushing gray rock your opponent can perform a surprise attack from almost any direction while you are forced to follow your prescribed "safe" course through it all.

The bridge is a flurry of activity as all hands do their duty with admirable diligence, but wide eyes and panicked energy reveal the under current of nerves, or even fear, present in your girls at the prospect of an

There's a reason we put sage in the email field - it's so we don't randomly bump stories where the author's gone AWOL for extended periods of time... particularly when the last posts were four and nine years ago.
