csa01marisa0039-00.gif

MARISA: What're you doin' in the forest?

MIMA: Oh, simply wandering about, having fun ...

MARISA: "Fun" doesn't mean what it's sposta mean when you say it. What're you plannin'?

MIMA: Me? I am not planning anything. My plan is to sit back and enjoy the show. At most, I am simply alerting you to said show's existence.

MARISA: Okay, then, what didja do to cause this "show"?

MIMA: Absolutely nothing, beyond refraining from stopping it. Really, Marisa, you ought to try to be more polite about this.

MARISA: Look, this is me being more polite about this, an' not tryin' to make stupid feet-jokes or makin' crazy threats like, I dunno, tryin' to sic Orin on ya.

MIMA: Orin?

MARISA: Rin Kaenbyou. She's this hell-cat who lives in the Underground. She can control lesser evil-spirits who're like on the opposite end of the power-scale from you. Okay, look, why doncha gimme a few hints fer old times' sake?

MIMA: Well, all right then, even if you said yourself that the most recent "old times' sake" consisted of trying to kill you. But your hint is that if you keep on with what you have been doing, and do what seems to be the most natural, you will run right into the show -- in fact, you will discover that you are the star.

MARISA: I am the star? It's me?

MIMA: What?

MARISA: Nothin'. Look, is this gonna be some kinda world-threatenin' event or somethin'?

MIMA: Oh, no. It is closer to standard fare for the more minor Incidents.

MARISA: So, uh, what makes it so special? Doesn't seem too dif'rint from other stuff, really. Here I am, goin' about gettin' myself some new magic, suddenly shit gets weird and I have to give someone a Sparkin'.

MIMA: Not much -- only in one small, rather amusing detail that I'd rather you found out on your own.

MIMA: I know.

> Inimicality won't resolve this situation. Ask her if she'll take a seat so you can dicus-- er, well maybe we can just put up our feet and, uh, no wait, can't we just walk this off.. oh to hell with it. I mean from hell with her. I mean... screw it.

I second this so hard.

>You've had enough of this foolish chicaneries, Strife Modus: Bad Cop
>Threaten this mentor with tactics that rhyme with Faster Bark

Enlong

> Remind her that stars are nothing new. You use stars in danmaku, fought a shrine maiden who uses star-shaped patterns, and fought a crow that can make real stars. Being a star is nothing weird.

Or did you mean star as in a celebrity- no, that strikes you as crazy.

How meta.

> *shrug* "Don't sound too different from earlier incidents, really. Here I am, goin' about gettin' myself some new magic, suddenly shit gets weird and I have to give someone a Sparkin'."

Bocaj

>Ask if this is one of those self-fulfilling deals where attempting to avoid it will make it happen

Artsugi

>"Or, you could tell me now, save yourself a danmaku to the face, and we can all go to the Hakurei Shrine and annoy Reimu."
>I wanna be the shrine maiden. Be the shrine maiden

Saiai

> "Stop being so... vague! And ghostlike! And whispy! It's annoyin'!"
