Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #40

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Yukari Yakumo, Tewi Inaba, Marisa Kirisame, Alice Margatroid, Nitori Kawashiro

The central premise (Yukari manipulates the border of "tsundere" and "yandere") was given to me by Xan of Maidens of the Kaleidoscope. I, um, promptly told him that Alice had no "tsun" anymore as a reason why not to do it. In any event, the rest of it is my own invention.

I kept meaning to write up a short story about some sort of event in particular which spurred Marisa to move in with Alice, which I have now done.

I added Shanghai on 31 May 2009, because I'd completely forgotten she existed.

Transcript

  1. (Yukari and Tewi are standing around in the Magic Forest.)
    Yukari: ... The prank you just described will be the awesomest one ever performed!
    Tewi: So, you'll help me do it, then?
    Yukari: Indeeeeeed!
  2. (Closeup of Tewi, smirking wickedly.)
    Pink Text: Step 1: 「Manipulation of Luck」 No matter how viciously Alice Margatroid attacks Marisa Kirisame, she will not be able to kill her or give her any injuries more severe than a light scratch.
  3. (Closeup of Yukari, grinning evilly.)
    Yellow Text: Step 2: 「Border of Tsundere and Yandere」
    Step 3: [Border of Situation Where Yandere Would Go Nuts]: Yellow Text
  4. (Cut to Alice's front door; Alice and Marisa are standing outside, with Shanghai hovering by Alice.)
    Alice: I'm surprised you didn't bring in more of your belongings when you moved in here ...
    Marisa: Well, y'know, I figured, I never use any of that stuff anyway, so I thought I'd just use my house as storage, ze ...
  5. (A gap appears above them, with Tewi and Yukari peering out.)
    SFX: Appear!
    Yukari: K, I have this gap set to "hidden". They can't see it or hear us.
    Alice: (teasing) Heh ... I guess you still have problems giving up junk, huh?
    Marisa: (goofy) It's not junk! They're all keepsakes of important sentimental value!
  6. (Yukari and Tewi send rainbow-rays at them, as they move in for a kiss.)
    SFX: k, now!
    Alice: Hee ... I love you, Marisa!
    Marisa: Love ya too, Alice!
  7. (Alice and Marisa's lips almost touch.)
    Alice: Mmmmmm!
    Marisa: Mmmmmm!
  8. (They're startled away as Marisa gets a Codec call.)
    SFX: BREEBEEP BREEBEEP!
    Alice: Augh!
    Marisa: Wha!
  9. Tewi and Yukari SFX: watching Alice
    Alice: Grrr ...
    Marisa: What ...? Nitori?
  10. (Closeup of Tewi and Yukari, both with Light Yagami's smirk.)
    Text: TEI-KAKU DOORI!
    Smaller Text: (Just Inabas Planned)
  11. (Cut back to Alice's house. With Yukari and Tewi still watching on, Alice watches in annoyance as Marisa irately speaks on Codec.)
    Nitori: (over Codec) Um ... Hey, Marisa, what's up with being so ticked off?
    Marisa: Well, I *know* I had this thing turned off, and that you have some kinda override fer that, so if this is *not* more important than makeouts with Alice, which it can't be, I'm gonna frickin' masterspark yer ass, ze.
  12. Nitori: (over Codec) Uh ... what?
    Marisa: .....
  13. (Marisa crushes the device in her other hand.)
    SFX: CRUSH
  14. (This seems to improve Marisa's mood as she turns back to a bashful Alice.)
    Tewi: Yukari ...
    Yukari: Hmm?
    Marisa: There, that's outta the way. So ... back to makeouts?
    Alice: (sweatdrop) Aheh ... sure! Let's go inside ...
    Alice SFX: Marisa is so forward
  15. (Marisa and Alice head inside.)
    Tewi: Why is Alice not going psycho?
    Yukari: Oh ... that's probably because I think she isn't a tsundere anymore. She's all out of tsun.
  16. Tewi: (sweatdrop) ... and you didn't think to mention this *why*?
    Yukari: (cheerful) I thought it would be funny!

And that is how Yukari out-pranked the prankster. Isn't she magnificent?

Solarn

Although Marisa does show some yandere-like (or at least uncharacteristically aggressive) tendencies when talking to Nitori after the duo's manipulations, so maybe she had a little "tsun" in her?

/ Modified by Dizzy H. Muffin:

"Uncharacteristically aggressive"? This is the same Marisa "Blow Up Everything In Sight" Kirisame we're talking about, right? ;)

She's just annoyed at makeouts getting interrupted.

Solarn

Yes, but when she usually blows up everything in sight, she does it cheerfully. SuddenlyAngry!Marisa is a new one.

Dizzy H. Muffin

Again: she's annoyed at makeouts getting interrupted. :3

Selphos

I still find this funny for some reason.
So did Marisa ever get around to Master Sparking Nitori's ass? Ze?

Dizzy H. Muffin

Um ... guess not. Maybe.
