Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #112

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Kaguya Houraisan, Fujiwara no Mokou, Aya Shameimaru, Midori Inaba, Mika Sayomi Inaba

More experimenting with shadows! Personally, once you're using shadows to specify a flying character's location, I kinda think it looks better this way.

For some reason, I've never been quite satisfied with the create.swf version of Eientei's background. This is pretty much why I still always use my own. Ah well.

The flashback is largely based on an unfinished chapter of Ends and Beginnings (including the punch line), which is the worst fic I've written, partly because it is based entirely on shipping rather than having any other interesting story to tell (i.e. Perfect Square is all about "shit be gettin' real"). I decided to bring it out of mothballs after reading the doujin "Eternal Girls" by Canaria Mint (not linking because it contains mild nakers due to bath-scene and cuz I'm lazy),1 in which Kaguya pulls exactly the kind of shenanigans my version of her would do if they weren't already together. Well ... apart from the whole "let's be together, but if you want you can go out with other people until they die, and then you can come back to me" thing, which is just messed up.

But yeah. I guess I'm not covering particularly new territory. (Except that I'm also aware of the fact that I got the ordering mixed up ... and Mika and Midori are established characters ...)

Oh, also, in case you hadn't noticed, the links in the character-list for OCs will now send you to a page on my site instead of my userpage on the Touhou Wiki. The information was already there; it's just that it's now here instead.

Transcript

  1. (Kaguya and Mokou are in Eientei; Mokou is resting her head in Kaguya's lap.)
    Kaguya: Say, Mokou ...
    Mokou: Hmm?
    Kaguya: Which do you think sounds better ...
  2. (Mokou leaps out of Kaguya's lap in a panic.)
    Kaguya: "Fujiwara no Kaguya", or "Mokou Houraisan"?
    Mokou: WHA WHA WHA WHAaAaAa!?
  3. Kaguya: Hee hee hee ... I'm sorry, it's just ...
    Mokou: (blush, sweatdrop) Yeah, uh ... Kaguya, I love you, but I'm really ... not ready to even think about marriage yet ...
  4. Kaguya: All right, I'm sorry, Mokou. Though that also reminds me of the last time the subject came up ...
    Mokou: (sweatdrop) Oh, aheh, of course ...
    Mokou: (aside) Though didn't we get the order mixed up the last time we mentioned that incident ...?
  5. (Night scene; Mokou is in the process of blasting Kaguya in the face with lots of danmaku, her phoenix-wings out.)
    Mokou: AAAAH!
    Kaguya: WAUGH!
    Blue Spell Card: Immortal 「Fire Bird -Asplode Your Face-」
    Text: (not to be confused with Everlasting 「Phoenix's Tail」)
    Red Spell Card: Impossible Request 「Hourai Barrage -Shiny Objects-」
  6. (Kaguya explodes; Mokou flinches back.)
    SFX: KRAKOW
  7. (Kaguya rematerializes slightly lower.)
    Kaguya: Whee, ow ... You were pretty awesome just now, you beat all my Spell Cards without me hitting any of yours!
    Mokou: Mmph ...
    Spell Card: 「Resurrection」
  8. (Mokou makes her wings disappear, glaring down at a still-cheerful Kaguya.)
    Kaguya: Of course, that means you've fulfilled all my Impossible Requests! You know what that means?
    Mokou: No. What?
  9. (Mokou has an expression of complete befuddlement.)
    Kaguya: It means I'd let you MARRY me if you wanted!
    Mokou: (thought cloud) What!? How dare you throw my father's humiliation in my face -- (large purple letters) R-really!? (normal) Augh! No! Shut up!
    Mokou: Wstfgl?
  10. (Kaguya floats up to Mokou with a little sort of smile.)
    Mokou: B ... wh ... th ... WAIT!!
  11. (Mokou throws a fireball, and Kaguya dodges.)
    Mokou: AAAAA!
    Kaguya: Ah!
  12. (They both freeze as it hits something off-panel.)
    SFX: BOOMIES
  13. (Mokou, Kaguya, Mika, and Midori are standing around in the Bamboo Forest, under Aya's suspicious eye. Midori, in the background, is dumping water onto a few remaining embers and glancing back in annoyance.)
    SFX: splish
    Kaguya: Um ...
    Mokou: Well, uh ...
    Mika: Hey, it was already on fire when *I* got here!

1Which is to say ... "I'm lazy" is a second reason why I'm not linking it, not a second reason why there is nakers.

This strip reminded me of that Chihagura doujin 'Idakiss.' Great strip; it's nice to see Mokou get flustered when Kaguya talks about marriage.

CapedLuigisYoshi

Didn't Comic 17 have the fire happening in the daytime, though?

*checks*

Wow, the original create.swf models were kinda ugly. Anyways, yeah, it was daytime. Unless this is some kind of retcon?

I've been meaning to request a full blush face-type thing for create.swf for a while, and it would have fit Mokou way better than the sticker-type blush.

Dizzy H. Muffin

Well, uh, the original article is at 19 hours. So, um, closer to night, I guess. Both versions are a screwup! |3

Nitpick reiteration: You got the spell card name wrong in your correction. It's Immortal 「Everlasting -Phoenix's Tail-」 :P

Anywho, gee, doesn't that last scene look familiar? Also, there should definitely be a copy-pasted-pose-with-rapidly-animated-background for some of the usual groups. Team ⑨ springs immediately to mind...

Dizzy H. Muffin

It's Immortal 「Everlasting -Phoenix's Tail-」 :P

No it isn't. :P

Solarn

I like Ends and Beginnings. It's nice to have some nice, uncomplicated WAFF sometimes.

Joe4evr

*Just re-read the comments of the list of romantic parings page*

Shit man, you actually got that idea before Chihagura's latest doujin.

KennyMan666

Of course, I had to look up that doujin now. And goddamn, was it ever awesome.

I have to say that "If you tire of me, see someone else, then come back to me" is a really interesting spin on the relationship. There's a lot of aspects about a relationship that can literally last eternally that could be interesting to explore further, but I'm not seeing a lot of that being done. Oh well.

Sarrg

Tewi is obviously lying like always :D!!

Dizzy H. Muffin

That's Mika Sayomi Inaba (see character-list), not Tewi :P

Duran

I'm also a bit of "Little girls' dance"; the doujin where the two immortals are rendered neko-chibis, and the matter of Mokou and Keine came up and Kaguya basically was "go ahead but don't keep me waiting too long"

Even more interesting: the end implied that Keine was starting to fall for Kaguya as well. Happy Trio perhaps?

Bocaj

What does this mean for the player character beating the Impossible Requests? The two-character playable teams even.

Dizzy H. Muffin

Presumably, they didn't capture all her Spell Cards without dying/bombing on at least one.

That, or Kaguya was just messing around with Mokou there. ;)

Ozimul

The way you write Mokou - here and in your fanfic - makes me laugh every time she shows up. I love reading your Mokou.

Facteur Rien

Gentleman... THIS IS WIN!
But, yeah, reminded me too the Chihagura comic.
Coincidence?

linkhyrule5

Oh, huh, it isn't. I think my eyes need checking... SOrry for the naggy-ness! :p.

/ Modified by Dizzy H. Muffin:

Mokou Houraisan feels more "as it should be" considering Mokou's tsundere behavior. Yet if instead Kaguya took the surname, becoming "Fujiwara no Kaguya", I get the feeling there is some sweet irony/closure with consideration to the whole affair involving Kaguya and Mokou's father. This is a tough choice...

Loved that fanfic, by the way. It had quite a bit of literary charm to it, IMHO.

Pardon me, but I just want to shout out this reference, because there is at least a slight similarity in the quotation with this scenario: "I would have been your daddy mommy, but the dog beat me over the fence! YOU married me instead!" [Muffinedit: Fix'd! And close HTML tags with </tag>.]

Hunter 1

...Did we really need to bring IWHBYD into this?

Dizzy H. Muffin

... "IWHBYD"?

PriffyViole

So THAT'S the reason why the fire started...

Hunter 1

Muffin: Look at the modified quote in some-touhou-fan's post, you'll figure out what it stands for. It's one of Sgt Johnson's lines in the first Halo, and in later games the IWHBYD skull makes dialogue wackier then usual.

Kaius

Kinda reminds me of some other thing I read once, featuring hilarious accidental proposals from Mokou. Danbooru Linkage.[Caution: Danbooru has some very NSFW ads.]
