Tewi: work with Yukari to force everyone into silly outfitsWhile truly a noble endeavor, i believe i have had more pressing concerns.
Like freeing yasora, stopping shanghai from being born, and turning masha into a time/space breaking mushroom god.

Though i guess i should probably get on that now that i can't pursue said more pressing concerns.

>Yukari: Help me get everyone into silly outfits.

@Tewi Inonymous: Here, Tewi, I composed a themesong for your post there. I made it on the SD-90 and everything.

There will always be another day, and another day is another chance for shenanigans.

Masha's theme reminds me of "Chrono Trigger" music for some reason. (That's a good thing as far as I'm concerned.)

Ditto, actually.

Too bad it's over. Definitely the best MSPA inspired touhou alternate timeline I've ever read!

>After Credits Mysterious Voice: ... Yes.... Yes, it all went as planned... She never suspected she was the superior one... Yes. No one knows you are the third one. Yes... Mister President.

Or something.

I can't believe this is over. I even send a command that appeared in the thingy. I was so exited.

Masha Gear Solid 2: Daughters of Reimu's Tea

SPOILERS: After playing as Masha for a little while, we spend the rest of the game playing as Rinnosuke.

Actually, I did have an idea for a "Marisa Gear Solid" series which would attempt to parody all six games in the main Metal Gear series. I think that would've been a lot more ridiculously long than this, though.

At any rate, someday I'm totally going to take MGS2's "dicking around with players' expectations" thing, and apply it directly to some sort of parody of MGS2.

Although I just been Stalking from the sidelines recently I really enjoyed this chunck of awsome. From the fan fictions, the terror miko maiden, epic last boss with okku fighting on the other end. I do hope you keep doing something though, this is just too good not to last...

That was a sweet ride so I think a "@muffen> pat self on back for a job well done" is in order.

I do have to say about the extra stage though, did chrino and the other fairy not die a few dozen times? So I think no extra stage for us makes sense....

In the end I regret I never got around to make good artwork for you. Ah, RL, greatest pain ever. However it was a fine ride right there and I whole-heartedly thank you for this entertaining, at times funny, at times sad but always interesting story.

Syrian Kanachi

Ah man. This was just fantastic. Every single panel, comic or strip.
And Masha's theme at the end there is really a nice touch.

I hope you do continue making comics like this, it's probably been my all around favorite non-canon touhou series.

Dizzy H. Muffin

You might want to take a look at my other stuff, then ... ;)

Syrian Kanachi

Oh those? Haha I read those first! All in one night about... 4 months ago. XD
Gotta say, love your brand of humor.

Formica Archonis

Clap clap clap clap clap.

Wait, that stopped looking like a word there.

Applause.

Player Three

And our moeshroom won't grow up into anything but another random stage 3 boss :(.

I prefer it that way, to be honest. An OC who is born(!) powerful enough to challenge main characters is an extremely difficult OC to make. And not to say that Touhou is lacking for characters, but having less powerful characters rounding out the cast is almost always a good thing. I say almost because some series have less powerful characters where they simply don't belong--I'm looking at you, Dragonball.

DiMastine

Im pretty sure there is a term for OCs that can beat up the main cast. Mary Sue

Dizzy H. Muffin

Nah, that's not the only thing that makes a Mary Sue. I mean, having a villain who beats up the protagonist on their first try is perfectly acceptable, as long as that's part of the series formula (I'm looking at you, Yorihime). A Mary Sue needs extra "badly written" and "WHO'S THIS DOUCHEBAG?"-ness.

Henix Aurorus

I must say, this little webcomic is quite funny, and a little goofy if I may say so myself. Just finished reading this (without skipping), and it is definitely very well-done. Awesome work. :)

Houraiguy

I found that there was a lot of commands and a lot of commands subsequently being ignored/dismissed/otherwise dispelled. I don't know if this was supposed to be in the style of MSPA (sadly, I am too lazy to read it without peer encouragement :/), but then again, it's still hilarious!

Dizzy H. Muffin

If you mean characters disobeying the commands they've been given, then yes, there's precedent for that, both in MSPA itself and in the fanmade "forum adventures" and the like.

DiMastine

found a list (not responsible for lost time)

MWchase

Gonna look through these...

the author is just writing the character for amazing stuff to happen to instead of a character that actually exists as a person

Shooting and kidnapping is amazing stuff, right? :P Bleh, the rest of Personality is a wash, IMO. (Been saying that a lot, recently. Think it's because I recently saw a guy who looks like Wash. Like, exactly, I'm pretty sure.)

Skills: no, no, no, pfft no, precisely consistent with setting, precisely consistent, precisely consistent, I don't think, irrelevant, no

Physical appearance: no, PFFFFFFAHAHAHAHAHAHA, definitely not, no again, does the shoulderless fanart count? :P, irrelevant, no, no, no, no.

Accessories and relationships: full no, I think.

Story Elements: I think not, acceptable, no, PFFFT, "Nobody knows the pain... of being a mushroom", no, no, wildly irrelevant, double laughter, no to the rest.

Names: full no, IMO.

Presentation: "You are now the MUSHROOM.", full nos, as well, and I'll note that the readers were doing the second-to-last here >_>

Author investment: Little early to tell, maybe, but signs point emphatically to "no".

Man, this seems like such a sensible time investment after four hours of sleep, and then hopped up on black tea and honey.

tl;dr: I'm fairly sure that every trait that applies to Masha in a vacuum is completely justified when considering Gensokyo as a setting.

Moth 13

I dunno. Disobeying commands can be funny if used sparingly, but I felt there were way too many here. (though it's definatly not the worst in this respect, not by a long shot)

Dizzy H. Muffin

Well, not all of them were meant to be "funny" exactly; certainly not throughout the first act, where "we are recieving commands" was the plot (and sort of in Fiery Netherworld, where the plot was "I am attempting to send commands"). That said, all I can say is, there'll be a lot less of it in future CSAs.

DiMastine

Yasora might fall into villain sue and copy sue. since she's a stronger form of Utsuho.

Dizzy H. Muffin

/ Modified by Dizzy H. Muffin:

Well, according to the Mary Sue acid test (I'm leaving "humanoid beings with powers beyond human abilities" unchecked because these are 1. extremely common in the stated setting, and 2. less powerful than some of the humans), the score is 6 if you think her drive-for-revenge is justified, and 5 if not. This is less than half of the maximum score of the "most likely not sue" category. (For the record, I did 1e, 1l, and 86b in part 1 (36 is the "revenge" one); 8, 26, and 41 in part 3 (part 2 is "original setting characters" so I skipped it); and 2, 11, and 18 from the "de-suifiers" section (I'm counting Yukari as a "parent" for the purposes of reconciliation).)

I mean, she's irksome for other reasons, but I tend not to be stupid about actual Mary Sue traits. ;)

EDIT: Also, Masha ended up with a score of 3.
