THE STORY SO FAR:
The world has ended, but five (well, it’s complicated) humans get a chance to do it over, and make things right. Only problem is, for their second go around, they're not going to be 'human'...

Kudamaki Kosuzu has reawoken, and promptly been given a task; escort and advise the Dragon Miko for her last few days in the Animal Realm, and her entry into the world of the living. Fortunately, said Dragon Miko is actually her old friend, Reimu, reborn as the heiress of the Kicchou line and the Kiketsu family as a whole.

As they were preparing to head to the surface, however, another girl fell into peril. A human piloting a strange craft known as the Probability Space Vessel crash-landed in Keiga territory, and pilot and vessel both have now been seized by Saki Kurokoma.

The fortune-teller Ichi sent Kosuzu, Reimu, and the young Mayumi out to rescue the girl; one Okazaki Yumemi, seemingly closely-related to the soothsayer. They snuck into a makeshift hideout, and with some minor issues with the door, split up to each take different methods of opening it. Kosuzu snuck in and freed the young Yumemi from her most immediate confinement, only seconds before a certain wicked hermit began to make her own way into the room…

About Kosuzu's talisman in his ear, maybe Reimu remembers that Ran also has a lot of talismans in his hat?

It looks like we might be about ready for a new thread. I was wondering on either a new thread or a new arc, would we be able to get a summary of each of the Heroine's stats? (Maybe all of the currently revealed ones at the start of the arc, and just the currently active ones for the new thread?)

Also sorry for tying things up there! Just felt like it was the better question for Kosuzu to ask her grandpa first after thinking about it... Not that it ended up changing anything !XD

#1 - A Pair of Panties with the Size Marked Out in Sharpie

The lair of a youkai is one of their most guarded domains. As creatures who roam the fringes of mankind's understanding, it is vital that their domiciles provide them adequate enough respite, for lurking in the depths of the unknown can grow quite tiresome for even the most incomprehensible of beings. Dreadfully, it would appear as though the lair of this youkai's domain was neglected.

This wouldn't be entirely unexpected here. For this youkai spent most of the year in slumber. What times she was forced awake outside of her season, she would be groggy and grumpy, and not too well-kempt. Still, from the panties and dirty clothes tossed on the floor, the dirty dishes unwashed in the sink, and the avalanche of newspapers shoved through her door's mail-hole, things could have been better.

The snoring that rumbled through the bedroom of this lair came to a gentle end, and a stirring came from the bed. With drool on the side of her mouth and the blankets tossed aside, the sloppy youkai raised from her bed, sitting upright. She ungraciously scratched her behind and looked up at the clock. A fancy import she had to do a nasty favor for the kappa to obtain, the LCD screen showed the time and date. 13:43. December 1st. So began her time of year.

After a minute or so to further gather herself, she stretched her legs over the side of the bed. After a further minute, she stood up and began to head to the bathroom. It was the job of the embodiment of winter in Gensokyo to look right and proper for the position. And Letty Whiterock, sole yuki-onna of Gensokyo (and mayhaps the world), would need to look the most right and most proper. One quick shower later, Letty took the time to examine herself. Her legs... A bit thicker than last year and... Well nothing a quick shave couldn't fix. Her breasts... Large ones were always popular, she needn't worry there. Though below those, perhaps the most embarrassing area. The youkai gave a sigh of disappointment as she moved closer to the mirror. At least her face remained pretty and unmarred. That was important for a yuki-onna, to look pretty.

Letty paused

This doesn't make sense. She already knows we were with Yuuka and we just mentioned that we blacked out in the Garden of the Sun.

I feel like we should nail the details fiest. We have 24 hours and it's only been an hour so far at most. I'd call it more like 10 to 20 minutes.

Everyone’s waiting for you to continue. The thing is, you didn’t have anything to follow up after that. But you don’t want to disappoint, so you say the first thing that comes to your head.

“And then we can beat him up,” you conclude, earning the respect of battle-happy shrine maidens across the world. You’re sure Reimu’s clapping in her head with the approving nod that she’s giving you.

“...Him?” The badger sputters. “As in, the other guy… and not me, y-yes?”

“Do you want to be beaten up too?” asks Reimu.

With a somber expression, he shakes his head slowly and silently.

“Good.” The shrine maiden jerks a finger to the mountainside. “Now take us to your boss, leader, or whatever you call him.”

Despite how talkative the badger initially was, he does not say a word through the forest’s passage and the climb up the steady hillside. With Reimu following right behind the badger, it looks like he’s being walked to his execution—and the shrine maiden, his executioner. He stops at a patch of open area. Around is conspicuously clear of brush, as if all the foliage was trimmed away. All that’s missing is quiet in the forest, a dark mist that permeates through the woods, and you’d be wondering if you’re experiencing a serious case of deja vu.

A horned figure steps out from the cover of the trees. Just like the badger described, the youkai has a ruddy, taurus-like face. Dark splotches color the sides of the man’s face like oil, finished with a black muzzle that juts out. Mino, you think for a second before discarding it.

I'd say he's still capable of being a massive troll, just perhaps written with a bit more subtlety than in the early threads. See, for example, every conversation he's had with Akyuu, including the one just a few updates back (which, I suppose, with Moral's update speed might feel a long time ago…).

It was late summer, the cicadas worked hard, producing their buzzing songs, although one would find it irritating, the sound was nothing to worry about for the Shrine Maiden, who was currently asleep.

Of course, someone had to interrupt her affairs.

"Yo Reimu what are you doing ze?!" comes the witch sliding the door of the shrine open without care.

"Ugh~~" Rubbing her eyes with a troubled groan, Reimu slowly lifted herself off her futon. "How many times do I need to tell you not to enter like that Marisa?!"

Still rubbing her eyes, the shrine maiden adjusted her skirt and walked over to the kitchen "You know what, whatever, I'm gonna have a snack, want some?" The witch giggled in approval, entering the shrine proper.

Meanwhile, somewhere else

A hidden path extended deep into the woods, although I called it "path" It was sparse and hard to follow for nobody had used it for maybe decades but at the end of it one would be directed to an old worn-out shrine abandoned in the woods.

The once white and pristine walls were covered in vines and the woodwork was infested with mushrooms and soaked to the brin by the rain. Once someone slid open the now rotten front door, however, they would find its interior walls filled with inscriptions and runes that connect with a magic circle right in the middle of the room.

Looking at the forest again a bit of hesitation spreads thoughts but is not like I have another choice as I don't have a home left for me anymore.

Checking if anything is in order I set my backpack down and check my belongs:

a week's worth of military rations, a Swiss knife, my purple charcoal (to complete the magic circle), my old man`s photos, and an old book with a blank cover with the instructions for the activation of the magic circle alongside 20 or so firecrackers with two types, one with intention of making a lot of noise but the explosion was small and the other type made a big explosion, nothing to kill but to stagger to get me wherever I was fighting enough for me or to run or to me go on the offensive myself.

[-] Fallout.

After a few seconds wrestling with the mini-hakkero, Mamizou abandoned it, swearing. Even if she could stop it now, there wasn't a point; half of Gensokyo had to have seen that blast. And that meant damage control was the name of the game.

"Nue! We need to leave!"

"Yeah, yeah." her friend rolled her eyes. "I told you disguising as Akyuu was a stupid decision."

"It would have worked if he wasn't already aware I was involved," Mamizou grumbled. "Which shouldn't have been possible."

"That's a funny way to say, 'Yes, Nue, you were right all along.'"

"Nue!"

"Fine, fine. One cloud of darkness, coming right up."

Thinking about Ran and Chen's dynamic gave me some inspiration, so today's update is the beginning of a new side-story!

https://www.thp.moe/border/res/32148.html

This story takes place in USiL's continuity, back when Gensokyo was first made. (Or to be technically accurate, when it was first separated from the outside world, so a little over 100 years ago.) It's not necessary for the main story, but considering who we're following right now, it's definitely relevant.

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

The fortune-teller Ichi seems forewarned of - and especially invested - in this event. She has tasked Reimu, Kosuzu, and the haniwa Mayumi with rescuing them, from Kurokoma and her new wicked hermit ally. With a tube-fox’s cunning and a bit of combat spells learned from a grimoire penned by Yakumo Ran, Kosuzu must now guide her friends and their target to safety…

I'm not gonna say anything definitive regarding the discussion of Kosuzu's backstory, but I am gonna say that in terms of what to call the stone cherries of Pyrefairies, I've been calling them Endless Embers.

Though, perhaps Charred Cherries would be a more descriptive term for them.

The Imugi recalled distant memories of simpler times in the plainside, where he and his love laid silently next to each other underneath the shade of a tree. He thought of her smile that, despite its radiance, etched loneliness into her brow, only for her worries to quickly dissipate when he’d tend to her. And he remembered the emotions he had felt on that spring that when he had once thought that he couldn’t live without her. And yet, contrary to those feelings, despite everything, he still did. It was as if he had plunged a dagger into his own heart. But the voice of the winds would no longer haunt him of the past. In his ear, they whispered, “My Dragon,” almost incessantly. He would be tormented no more, for they were now joyful memories of the one he had loved the most. Even though one day, he would forget the contours of her face, the shape of her smile, and the way that she looked at him as if he were her one and only love, he could finally move onward.

Acceptance released the river of time, which had stopped long ago for the Imugi, and let it flow… as time always did. The fox-spirit, Kanami, his Kitsune and love, was gone. But no longer would he deny that he was truly without her—the Imugi had finally stopped chasing empty hope. He would instead cherish the memories and happiness that they had delivered onto each other and live a life that they both deserved.

But what did that mean for the Imugi? Was he fated to remain in Seoyang, where he repeated the same rainfall year after year, letting the plains remain unchanged in perpetuity? No, he now understood that growth came from the experience of life itself—not the false eternity that the Imugi had promised to the plainsmen many generations ago. Change came in trickles; it was but a small channel that deviated away from the river of time and flowed ever so gently. There, he would wait patiently until that change would envelop the plainlands and, by extension, himself.

So the serpent sought to leave the realm of Gensokyo and return to his homeland. There were a myriad of reasons why: He no longer felt the need to remain once his duty had been fulfilled, and while the change of horizons initially amused the Imugi, h

Damn, feels like longer than two months since the last update.

Incidentally, though it's very different in content and cultural context, I'm struck by a certain similarity in this narrative style and Enchi Fumiko's A Tale of False Fortunes, which I finished reading fairly recently. I know this story wasn't written as a splendid reference to anything in particular, but it is interesting how the way this story is told has almost a certain Heian-period flavour to it. Not full-on Genji but something in that milieu.

As always, waiting warmly.

The love between parent and child is a powerful thing. Hopefully it's powerful enough to let him get out of Gensokyo.

But while they prepare, a star falls from the sky… and the mysterious figure Ichi waits, with bated breath, for one of the most important events she had forewarning of to begin…

THE STORY SO FAR:
The world has ended, but five (well, it’s complicated) humans get a chance to do it over, and make things right. Only problem is, for their second go around, they're not going to be 'human'...

Reiuji Youmu’s first day after awakening to her past proved harrowing, but also enlightening. Through surfacing her memories, much about the Pyres, the flames of despair that ended the world before, was revealed. Even more disasters - and the sudden, still-not-understood emergence of a Pyre years before it should have - revealed an even greater truth. Though they did not remember it, they were not the first to have their fates changed - two others, named Sanae and Tenshi, had tried and failed to stop the disaster once already. The plan to keep the quintet safe had been their last-ditch hope, to recruit more allies.

Youmu, along with her fellow reawoken allies Kicchou Reimu and Hieda no Akyuu, seek to find their remaining friends - Kosuzu the bookkeeper, and Marisa the magician - and then put their heads together to discover who Tenshi and Sanae are. But the most powerful tool of bringing back the two bibliophiles - a manuscript of the past world’s history - was lost in the confusion. And while one of the mysterious robed figures pulling the strings behind the scenes got caught in their own web, the other yet remains at large.

Perhaps to untangle the woven webs, one will need to be as clever as a fox. Fortunately, a fox appears to be just what Kosuzu will become…
