Characters: Reimu Hakurei, Rumia, EX-Rumia, Yukari Yakumo

Once again, I manage to take game-elements literally. This time, I didn't use the pink sketchy background, though. Hooray!

"EX-Rumia" has no basis in canon — at least, beyond the fact that her ribbon is an amulet she can't remove. You know, someday I might have to detail this completely-made-up battle between her and Yukari ... Also, it would've been a lot easier to make panel 5 and 10 if the "shadowed eyes" face in create.swf didn't obscure the character's hair ... (Edit: Hooray, that's been fixed)

You may have noticed that this comic has greater than the standard number of panels (that is, 9). I decided, hey, why shouldn't I? It's not like I'm trying to fit it into a print-page. Why not change the format to account for my badly-written joke story, rather than trying to fit my story into a particular format?

Please do not ask why a youkai of darkness starts to emit a bright light once her full power is unleashed.

Transcript

  1. (Reimu and Rumia floating around a cliff at night.)
    Rumia: Thanks for helping me to train danmaku, Reimu!
    Reimu: No worries, we'll have you up to stage 3 specifications in no time!
  2. (Rumia begins emitting a somewhat sparse wave of danmaku, while Reimu shoots a stream of amulets at her.)
    Reimu: Now, first, you have to send out a larger danmaku pattern. Don't forget to stick to a set pattern of movement!
    Rumia: Is that so!
  3. (Closeup as the amulets hit Rumia's ribbon, which disappears in a puff of smoke.)
    Rumia: Ack, my ribbon!
    SFX: Paff
  4. (Rumia is surrounded by crackling energy.)
    Rumia: Afuihgalfeuwauegl wlaitbiwuefaelwij
    Reimu: (nervous) Uh ... rumia?
  5. (Rumia grows a pair of dark wings and emits a huge blast of light.)
    Rumia: YEEAAAARRRRRGGGHHHHHHH!!
    Reimu: Holy crap!
  6. (Extreme closeup of Rumia so that her eyes aren't visible.)
    Rumia: .....
    Rumia: Heh heh heh ...
  7. (EX-Rumia floats amid the energies, her eyes glowing red.)
    EX-Rumia: ONCE AGAIN, I AM FREE! HUMAN, LOOK UPON YOUR DOOM!
    Reimu: (panicked) W-what!?
  8. (A dark sword appears in Rumia's hand.)
    EX-Rumia: YUKARI NEVER TOLD YOU ABOUT OUR BATTLE, DID SHE? SHE SEALED ME RIGHT UP WITH THAT AMULET, DISGUISED AS A SIMPLE HAIR-RIBBON!
    Reimu: (nervous) Uh-oh ...
  9. (EX-Rumia extends the sword towards Reimu.)
    EX-Rumia: BUT ALL THAT HAS PASSED, THANKS TO YOU! NOW THE FINAL BATTLE FOR GENSOKYO SHALL BEGIN ... WITH YOUR DEATH!
    Reimu: (neutral) Uh ...
  10. (A "spell card image" of Reimu appears as she surrounds EX-Rumia with ridiculous danmaku. EX-Rumia drops the sword (which isn't clearly visible in that panel, actually ...) as her energies start to contract.)
    Reimu: Nah.
    Blue Spell Card: Hax Sign 「You Jus Plain F***ing LOSE」
    EX-Rumia: AUGH! WHAT!?
  11. (Reimu's danmaku completely engulfs EX-Rumia, while Reimu cheerfully looks on; the spell-card title moves to the upper-left corner of the panel.)
    Rumia: NUUUUU! CURSE YOU, REIMU HAKUREI!
    Yukari: (poking her head out of a gap) Oh, good, you got to her first.
  12. (EX-Rumia explodes, as Yukari catches the dropped sword and closes the gap behind her.)
    SFX: KRAKOW!
    Reimu: Kay ... I don't know how to make another amulet for her, so I'll leave that to you.
    Yukari: Sounds good to me! I wouldn't want you to mess it up, either.
  13. (Various point and powerup items fly over to Reimu.)
    SFX: Power up!
    Reimu: Right. And next time, *warn* people that you've sealed away the power of an EX-Boss in a stage 1 character.
    Yukari: Hey, you know me! I'm way too lazy to do even that!

In 12.3, Reimu's fantasy heaven basically got upgraded to something akin to Hax Sign.

Yes, I'm given to understand that ...

Nice CAPTCHA!

But as far as a Youkai of darkness emitting light at high power? They aren't! They are so thoroughly dark that their mere presence forcibly shoves light out of it, which happens to look like light being emitted owing to the increase in frequency as it is pushed.
Halfway-feasible-Unnecessary-Explanation-Man AWAY!

Someday I'm gonna implement my idea of "it's called the Sword of Light and Darkness."

I like your story about It. I hope there will be more.

All it will take is Reimu vs. Youmu once, and that hax sign WILL be beaten XD
