Characters: Cirno, Marisa Kirisame, Fujiwara no Mokou

Fairy Wars (not to be confused with the similarly-named hentai game) begins here. Next week will be the punning conclusion! And sorry about the delay which resulted in Cirno feeling it more than a week later, I've been having ... motivation problems.

My original plan was for the Extra Stage to be one comic, with Phantasm as the second one and titled "Heir to the Moonfire," but I was really getting tired by the time I was finished, it was time to update anyway, and I really couldn't wring more than four or five panels out of the "Phantasm Stage" concept anyway.

Cirno's ... one-liner responses in the first half are repsectively references to Dragonball Z, Fist of the North Star, and of course Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (if that one wasn't obvious).

Chronologically, Mokou's black feelings turned red before Marisa and Alice started going out. And I figure it's really way too early for her to be fully comfortable with this massive change, so yeah. Cirno's just being too-dumb-to-live, though.

Transcript

  1. (Closeup of Marisa, against the cherry-trees-at-night background from the previous comic. She is firing stars and light-beams as danmaku.)
    Red Spell Card: Weak Sign 「Not Even Trying」
    Cirno: (off-panel) AGGHH, THIS IS A DIFFICULT EXTRA-LEVEL SPELL CARD!!
  2. (Marisa gets hit by ice-bullets as the Spell Card clears.)
    Marisa: Ackpth!?
    Cirno: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
  3. (The bullets clear.)
    Marisa: Heh ... Not done yet, are ya?
    Cirno: Ouch! I'm only using seventeen percent of my full potential, so my power level is weak! Or something!!
  4. (Marisa cheerfully fires a great big huge beam of ordinary light from her mini-hakkero; Cirno is knocked back, and launches randomly-spinning ice-danmaku.)
    Red Spell Card: Sarcastic Love Note 「Sorta Master Spark Flashlight」
    Marisa: Kay!
    Cirno: GAHHH!
  5. (Cirno hits Marisa back with a much more focused and directed wave of ice-bullets.)
    Marisa: Awk!
    Cirno: You are already freezed I mean frozen!
  6. (Marisa fills up the whole panel with a giant blast of light, surrounded by star-danmaku and great big orbs. Cirno shields herself with a chunk of ice.)
    Marisa: Right! Time ta take the kiddy-gloves off! And by kiddy-gloves I mean fairy gloves!
    Cirno: WAUGH!
    Red Spell Card: Not Quite So Hax Sign 「FAIRY DESTRUCTION RAY!!!」
  7. (Cirno, still shielding herself, launches ice-shards back at Marisa. The beam is visibly weakening.)
    Marisa: And by fairy-gloves I mean -- Ow! What!? How the hell are you still alive!?
    Cirno: (suddenly wearing Kamina-shades) FIGHTING SPIRIIIIT!!
  8. (The danmaku is cleared.)
    Marisa: Damn, girl!
    Cirno: ... pant ... pant ... I think I'm done now!
    Marisa: Hey, that's my line!
  9. (Marisa floats downward a bit.)
    Marisa: So what was up with attackin' me, anyway?
    Cirno: (wobbling a bit) I was feeling all pumped up cuz I won the fairy-war, and I wanted to fight someone really powerful!
  10. (Cirno keeps tilting backward.)
    Cirno: ... and now I'm just gonna go back home and fall asleep, wheeeee!
    Marisa: Haha, fine, see ya later.
  11. (Marisa flies across the panel, frowning; Cirno has collapsed on her back partway off-panel.)
    Marisa's Thoughts: Man, that was weird. I never woulda expected *that* goofball to be almost actually kinda challenging! I wonder if it means anythin' significant ...
  12. (She cheers up and prepares to fly away.)
    Marisa: Nah, forget it, I'm just gonna go kiss Alice some more!
    SFX: COMPLETE LACK OF CONCERN!
  13. Text: PHANTASM STAGE
  14. (Pre-battle interface, with Cirno facing off against Mokou in the bamboo forest.)
    Text: SPELL CARD SET!
    Mokou: No, seriously, kid, stop it, I'm not interested in fighting a fairy right now.
    Cirno: Aww, well, why not!?
    Text: CIRNO: ALL-FIRED-UP ICE FAIRY VS FUJIWARA NO MOKOU: BRINGING YOU FLAMES
  15. (Mokou turns away.)
    Mokou: ... sigh ... I came here because I needed some time to myself ... Everything's just turned upside-down for me ...
  16. (Cirno is losing interest.)
    Mokou: There's this girl who I thought I hated ... but, it was just me raging with incoherent jealousy, I guess, and it turns out I've fallen in love with her now ...
  17. (Cirno poses chaotically; Mokou looks irritated.)
    Cirno: Well I dunno about any of that, but I'm just too pumped up from beating the fairy war *and* the witch! I'm gonna --
  18. (Cirno's face is now on fire; Mokou stomps off, followed by a squiggle of indignation.)
    SFX: BOOMIES

Oh, you went and used Kamina shades! That's a milestone! XP

Also, first comment!

Zero-ELEC

Should be Glove Not Love

Dizzy H. Muffin

What? ... oh.

More like FAILY GLOVES there I fixed it

Bocaj

Cirno didn't quite make it home. Unless that blue means they're by the lake.

Mushyrulez

What's the background, anyways? (In the first panel.)

Dizzy H. Muffin

That would be "Sakura Tree 2," shortly after "Yuyuko's Bedroom." It's one of the earlier ones. I just used Rumia's "darkness" to dim it as Marisa's Spell Card background.

SorataZ

Ok, so I guess I'll just pretend that the comic didnt follow up Marisa realising the importantness of Cirno having almost kinda beat her or something and the next incident will be Cirno, Dai and 7 other fairies hunted by Team Fix'it to antarctica and back, when Cirno and co make an ice fortress with cannons and all trying to break the barrier and come back home, which will be a very dramatic story unlike anything Muffin made so far. Or, ya know, just show us more MariAri yuri, that would make people happy too. Probably.

Zeph

SorataZ: Muffin stories already have many canons, any more would be superfluous. /insert incredibly lame pun link and standard tvtropes warning hyar
'sides, in his own words: "I also deeply loathe "dwama"; you won't be seeing any of that here."

Rainy Daze

What can be established: Yuyuko's bedroom is between Alice and Marisa's houses. And she doesn't mind people fighting in it.

Hiding Fox

"Sarcastic Love Note" spell card had me laughing like an idiot.

Wolf

Why do I get this feeling that Marisa took a page out of Okuu's book and used her Master Spark move as a flashlight. Also, if that's is supposed to be the Youkai tree there I'd say it gained another body to absorb.

In the end seeing that she tried to pester moku was so worth it. I mean she is known to have artwork of her hanging aorund with Moku aside from Okuu. :p

Dizzy H. Muffin

Nah, the location of the Extra Stage in the game is "Mysterious Cherry Blossom Path at Night," so I was going with that.

Mettking

Wait...how long has Cirno had her shard wings back for?

Dizzy H. Muffin

Whaddaya mean "back"? She's chronologically never had anything else before! ;)

So, it looks like you haven't actually been paying attention to the chronology, which has been spelled out both in the comments-sections and the comic commentary?

Zeph

I finally got around to finishing fairy wars just now. Half the things I thought were jokes in the first half of this comic actually happened in the extra stage, which was icing on the cake

Dizzy H. Muffin

Yes, that is exactly the kind of game Fairy Wars is.

Zeph

Question! In your continuity, Star gets hauled off to work at the SDM, before the events of EoSD. Her non-spellcard attack looks near identical to Flandre's last spell card. Coincidence, or did Flan pull a Marisa? (If the latter, it's unintentional fridge brilliance)

Dizzy H. Muffin

... Where did you get "before EoSD"? This is between SA and UFO. :P

Zeph

Oh, my bad, forgot what cirno said one page ago. I assumed since it this page takes place just after the second comic, it would be a bit before the 8'th, when the EoSD arc starts.
Ah well, was a fun theory while it lasted

Satsuki Rin

Perhaps Star Sapphire pulled a Marisa on Flandre while she was working there, yes?

Zeph

Could do, although I find it hard to imagine her staying in the same room with flandre for more than a few seconds, especially while shes throwing around her last spellcard, considering they get terrified of a large turtle in the manga.
Having said that, imma now assume every comic featuring the SDM retroactively has the fairy trio hiding invisibly in the background. Like the silence.

Sunder the Gold

Wouldn't Okuu in the Nuclear Reactor be a more fitting Phantasm boss for Cirno? There's no way Moko's flames are hotter, let alone the Bamboo Forest.

Zeph

Cirno already did just that in Hisotensoku though, didn't she?

Besides, Mokou has the whole ressurect-until-running-out-of-motivation thing Cirno does, so it makes all KINDS of thematic sense

Dizzy H. Muffin

Besides, Mokou has the whole ressurect-until-running-out-of-motivation thing Cirno does, so it makes all KINDS of thematic sense

You know, that part hadn't actually occurred to me.

And now I'm starting to wonder what it'd be like if Cirno "won" ...
