Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #105

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Cirno, Daiyousei, Chen, Letty Whiterock, Mystia Lorelei

I figured I'd at least do something that acknowledges the entire season which the previous arc, um, ate. At least March isn't actually over yet. (I had "Snowman" from Earthbound stuck in my head as I made the winter-background.) And hooray, finally a comic which is less than a megabyte in size even in the PNG version ... and this is the most white I've used in, like, ever.

But yeah. I'm in your fanon, reconciling it with canon. Also, I base Mystia's unfamiliarity with Cirno's prior friendships on the fact that she's not a member of the original Team 9, and on the fact that Mystia was introduced in Imperishable Night, in which Yukari is playable, and I assume that new characters are new to player-characters unless otherwise specified (i.e. Suika knows Yuugi), and Yukari would have known Chen's friends.

I had some other ideas for this, like Letty's reaction next year to Cirno's new girlfriend, and maybe a Fate Of 60 Years-timeframe thing with Rumia, but I decided to just keep it simple.

And, yeah. I decided to just end it with a sorta low-key pun-chline.

Transcript

  1. Narration Box: Late Shimotsuki, 124 Gensokyo Calendar (which is November of 2008)
    (Cirno, Daiyousei (in long sleeves and a scarf), and Chen are running flying through snow-covered woods.)
    Cirno: Wheeee!
    Daiyousei: Yay, the first big snowfall!
  2. Cirno: Wait, hang on, I think I forgot something!
    Daiyousei: ... What is it *this* time?
    Chen: Probably the same thing she forgets every year.
  3. (Letty comes up behind Cirno.)
    Letty: Hello!
    Cirno: LETTY!
    Chen: Yep, I was right!
    Daiyousei: (sweatdrop) Aha!
  4. Letty: Why don't we go off and build our first ice-castle of the year?
    Cirno: Kay.
    Chen: Okay, Cirno will be distracted by her for the next few days. Let's go find Rumia.
    Daiyousei: ... Does she need finding?
    Chen: You know Rumia. She doesn't *see* the new snowfall at first.
  5. Narration Box: Early Yayoi, Gensokyo Calendar 124 (which is March of 2009, because the old Japanese year begins in April/Uzuki)
    (A more different winter-scene; Mystia and Chen are wandering through it.)
    Mystia: Wow, this winter went by really quickly ...
    Chen: Yeah, it's like almost nothing interesting happened ... no Incidents or anything!
  6. (Cirno and Letty wander into the area; Cirno is looking all cartoonishly teary-eyed.)
    Letty: ... sigh ... We go through this every year, Cirno. And I *do* have a few weeks left.
    Mystia: Ah ... those two.
    Chen: Heh, yeah ... they're like sisters.
  7. (Cirno and Letty walk off.)
    Chen: Too bad about Letty hibernating for the whole rest of the year.
    Mystia: Yeah ... anyway, I guess that crow-tengu must have made up that line about Letty not liking Cirno.
  8. Chen: You mean in that one article in her newspaper?
    Mystia: Yeah, wasn't it around the time of the Long Winter Incident?
    Chen: Yeah, I think that was written before Cirno and Letty became friends.
  9. Mystia: Ah, so Letty used to actually dislike Cirno?
    Chen: (grinning) Yeah, but since then ... she's warmed up to her.

Awwwwwwwwwwww....

This is cute.

CapedLuigisYoshi

Is it bad that I think that "pun-chline" is more painful than the actual joke?

Young Demon Lord

I nearly lol'd @ Cirno's face when Letty remarks about the fact that she leaves after Winter.

I didn't lol because I need to keep quiet during my Statistics lecture, which is going on right now.

Ooh, fellow Earthbound fan! :D. Also, like the pune, or play on words.

SoF

You could say their relationship was "on the rocks". But then one day it just all kind of snowballed together.

The Watcher

You can save Letty's reaction to Utsuho and the 60 Years idea for next week, I suppose.

Torpedo

@The Watcher

You could say things are about to...

...heat up.

The Prophet

That's my nineball friend, always overflowing emotions :D

@ Torpedo

YEEEAAAHHH!!!

Cirno was cute when she realize Letty would be hibernating. I like the casual feel of the last panel. Its nice to have some nice simple jokes every now and then. I would love to see Letty see Cirno and Okuu together and just see her reaction. I could just see Cirno and Okuu making out in one of the ice castles they Letty and her made and just seeing the awkwardness the ensures.


Regardless of my thoughts, I look forward to the next submission of yours.
