Story begins here, and self-evidently ends here!

Flandre got her "manipulation of destruction" power in A Different Story of an Eastern Wonderland, chapter 3, which was also just released.

I have made my decision, and that decision is that this storyline should end on an awesome note. Therefore, the "playable characters" have all used some of their most awesome attacks on Tenshi. With Cirno, I got lucky, since she's got some fairly snazzy moves in Touhou 12.3; now, if only I knew what they actually looked like.

I was undecided, for Flandre's attack, whether to spell it "Lavatein," the way most fan-translations of EoSD go, or "Levatein," the way it's pronounced in Taboo Tears You Up ... though it's still spelled "Raymond Luxury Yach-t." I eventually decided on the way Wikipedia spelled it, which is pretty much both ways.

Koishi, though ... well, she doesn't really have whole lot of spell cards that can easily be replicated in create.swf, so I went with one that could!

Fantasy Heaven really is a "hax sign" in Touhou 12.3, considering it deals 14000 points of damage.

Man ... you know, in the ending-sequence, I introduced a bunch of ... well, plot hooks, really! (Also, I need to find some kind of end-point other than the Moriya Shrine next time ... it's just that I couldn't resist using the epic night-backgrounds KirbyM made ...) I also tried to resolve any leftover plot points. I think I did a pretty good job at that ...

And I still had to use photoshop for Midori because there's no alternative to giving her a bow!

Transcript

  1. (Marisa is laying on the floor, regaining consciousness as Flandre and Koishi watch her.)
    Marisa: Ughh...
    Flandre: Ah, she's waking up!
    Koishi: You're getting better, Flan-chan!
  2. (Marisa is now getting up.)
    Marisa: Uh...? Oh, right, that "Manipulation of Destruction" thing flan's got going on... What's happenin' now?
    Koishi: Um, Iku Nagae showed up and now she's trying to beat Tenshi's stone with her sword.
    Flandre: But she's trying not to put the sword *in* the stone.
  3. (Marisa has her broom out now, and Marisa, Flandre and Koishi fly off.)
    Marisa: Yeahhhh, we *really* don't want a repeat of what happened *last* time someone broke a Stone of the Celestials...
    Flandre: Really? What happened?
  4. (Metal Gear Solid 3's game over screen.)
    Text: TIME PARADOX
    Text: Continue/Exit
  5. (Iku and Tenshi are facing off above the trees. Iku has Tenshi's sword; the Stone of the Celestials still hovers around Tenshi.)
    Iku: Looks like we're at a standstill! Ready to give up?
    Tenshi: Not even close! You?
  6. (Iku charges forward at Tenshi, the latter getting knocked upward off the panel.)
    Iku: Nope! I lied!
    Iku SFX: SPOOOOOOOON!
  7. (Tenshi, confident of herself, floating in front of the moon, Stone of the Celestials at her side.)
    Tenshi: Oof ... Okay, Iku, well played! But now...
  8. (Sakuya appears, doing the Dio, and Tenshi finds herself cut off and stopped in time.)
    Blue Spell Card: Illusion World 「ZA WARUDO」
  9. (Sakuya, with red eyes, and looking very annoyed, places knives in spirals around the trapped Tenshi, holding a knife herself.)
  10. (Sakuya unfreezes time, still looking very annoyed, and the knifes close in around Tenshi, who is appropriately shocked.)
    Tenshi: I shall ... HOLY CRAP!
  11. (The knives come together, inflicting punishment upon Tenshi, as Sakuya, still pissed looks on.)
    Sakuya: You aren't going to get off easy this time, Hinanai.
    Tenshi: Bwmtgfgbtl vmbndthkdb
    SFX: SCRUNCHIE
  12. (Sakuya floats of the panel, as Cirno rams into Tenshi's back, the latter still in shock. The knives dissipate.)
    Cirno: Heya! Flan came looking for us and said we could join the fun!
  13. (Tenshi is smacked around with a giant chunk of ice from Cirno)
    Cirno: CIRNO SMASH PUNY WEAKLING WITH GLACIER!
    SFX: KACHUNGA
    Blue Spell Card: Ice Mass 「Great Crusher」
  14. (Cirno floats off panel as the chunks of the broken apart piece of ice fall to the ground. Flandre appears behind Tenshi, grinning evilly and holding Laevateinn. Tenshi is frozen with shock.)
    Flandre: Hey there!
  15. (Tenshi desperately fires red laser thingies from her stone at Flandre, who effortlessly dodges the attack.)
    Tenshi: AAAAAAAA!!
    Flandre: Y'know, I really can't go all out in combat at all...
  16. (Flandre swings Laevateinn, leaving bullets in its wake and attacking a mortified Tenshi.)
    Flandre: ...But I can still get back at you for our earlier fight!
    Tenshi: ACKPTH!
    Blue Spell Card: Taboo 「Laevateinn」
  17. (Flandre flies off the top of the panel as Marisa shows up looking smug on her broom, holding her mini-hakkero, and Tenshi looks annoyed.)
    Tenshi: I-I'm not done yet!
    Marisa: Okay, 'at means I get a turn, ze!
  18. (Marisa fires her Final Spark, happily, engulfing Tenshi in it. The Stone of the Celestials wasn't hit.)
    Marisa: And I figure, y'know... Why only go halfway!?
    Blue Spell Card: Magicannon 「Final Spark」
    SFX: THOOOM
  19. (Marisa flies off panel as Tenshi looks after her, biting her tongue in anger, as Koishi, hidden by her Subconsciousness Barrier, approaches from behind.)
    Tenshi: Grr...
  20. (Koishi happily unleashes a barrage of hearts everywhere, pummeling Tenshi.)
    Blue Spell Card: Instinct 「Release of the Id」
    Koishi: Whee!
    Tenshi: AGGHH!
  21. (Koishi floats off panel as Tenshi snaps in anger and an annoyed looking Reimu appears.)
    Tenshi: Right! That's it!
    Reimu: Guess I got here just in time, then.
  22. (Tenshi releases her anger in a giant red beam attack, which Reimu dodges, still annoyed.)
    Red Spell Card: Scarlet Weather Rhapsody of All Humankind」
    Tenshi: HRAAAAAHHHH!!
  23. (Tenshi is embarrassed as she faces a barrage of o-fuda cards from Reimu and her Yin-yang Orbs.)
    Blue Spell Card: Hax Sign 「Fantasy Heaven」
  24. Text: ......
  25. (Iku, slightly annoyed and holding the Stone of the Celestials looks at Tenshi, who is crying. They both are back in heaven.)
    Narration box: Tenshi was returned to the heavens.
    Iku: Have you learned your lesson?
    Tenshi: No...
    Iku: .....
  26. (Remilia and Flandre are back at the SDM, Remilia wondering what's going on and Flandre happy as can be.)
    Narration box: Flandre was returned to the Scarlet Devil Mansion.
    Remilia: Say, Flan, when Eirin came by to drop off Patchy's medicine (and my hemoglobin patches), why did she seem interested in borrowing you?
    Flandre: I couldn't possibly say!
  27. (Sanae, scared, and Suwako, annoyed, peek out of the Moriya Shrine.)
    Narration box: Destroying the catness spell had unsealed the Moriya Shrine.
    Sanae: Is it safe to come out now!?
    Suwako: Is this kind of thing going to happen *every* time that celestial acts up!?
  28. (Orin, Koishi and Utsuho are in the Underground, Koishi looking worried, Utsuho scared and Orin annoyed. Orin is carting some orange pill jars in her cart.)
    Narration box: Orin, Koishi, and Utsuho finished their medicine-deliveries to the underground.
    Rin: Seriously, what *were* you thinking!?
    Utsuho: Unyu?
    Koishi: That, basically.
  29. (Yukari is pouting in front of an angry Ran and an amused Chen, as the trio stands by a tree.)
    Narration box: Yukari stopped fooling around. ... For now.
    Yukari: Hmph!
    Ran: Okay, I mean seriously, stop sulking about the fact that the incident was *resolved.*
    Yukari SFX: Acting like this just to amuse Chen
    Chen SFX: Hee Hee
  30. (Alice, Reimu and Marisa are enjoying tea in front of the Hakurei Shrine. Suika is sleeping off to the side.)
    Narration box: The shrine's crew went back to normal.
    Reimu: So, another incident nicely resolved.
    Alice: Guess you don't have any excuses to act silly now, huh, Marisa?
    Marisa: Yeah, what am I gonna do for the rest of spring?
  31. (Cirno is talking to Aya, who seems to not buy the story entirely. Midori and Mika are lost and meet the two. Midori looks somewhat embarrassed.)
    Narration box: Aya got a scoop...of a sort.
    Cirno: And then finally the shrine maiden went "BZOOOOOOMMMM!" and then--
    Aya: This is sounding less and less like you personally solved this incident yourself.
    Mika: Hi, um, we got lost again...
  32. (A cat-eared Sakuya, veins popping, Patchouli, excited, and Remilia, matter-of-factly, are in Voile. Sakuya is surrounded by a magic circle.)
    Narration box: Patchouli got a chance to examine the catness-effect.
    Remilia: Patchy, what does the magic circle say about her catness-level?
    Patchouli: IT'S OVER NINETYYYYYY!!!
  33. (The geyser.)
    Narration box: And finally, at the geysers...
  34. SFX: Rumble RUMBLE
  35. (The geyser discharges, spewing ... someone off the panel.)
    SFX: SHOOOOOM
    ???: WAUGH!

Duran

great comic, especially the whole Cirno smashing weakling. (It actually says that for that super on SWR wiki, Smash Puny weaking with large ice block!)

Tewi Inonymous

Ice mass: Great Crusher would be a terrible spellcard in the main games.......

I like that yukari is pissed the incident was resolved.
And tenshi can't possibly learn her lesson because this is the exact result she wanted, causing chaos and then getting beaten up.

Chaos42

If used in the third round of a vs match, Final Heaven is not only an insta-kill, it also has its own secret remix of Oriental Love Consultation that can't be found in the music list.

Kimiko Muffin

@Chaos42: I think everyoke knows that by now :B

Man on the 3up

Odd... Nue wasn't in the char list at the bottom. I spoiler'd it just in case.

BTW I loved the series.

The Ace Of Scarabs (Tv-Troper)

I guess you wanted to avoid using the rather overused obligatory "Hokuto no GENSOU: Musou Tensei" Fist of the North Star joke in regards to the FATAL Heaven (since it's been done elsewhere)?

Kimiko Muffin

Mm, I dunno, I just didn't feel like doing it I guess.

KirbyM

All right! Cirno!! And geysers!!

Morgan

Looks like Flandre was able to find Koishi pretty quickly. She seemed pretty worried in the last comic...

I love Tenshi's last line. And everything about the panel where Koishi attacks.

Does this mean Patchouli is going to be able to turn people into cats now? ♥

"Ice mass: Great Crusher would be a terrible spellcard in the main games......."

That's what I thought about Master Spark, but they still managed to come up with something. `.`

Kimiko Muffin

Actually, Koishi was just as worried, but she used her Third Eye to find where Flandre was, and flew up and said "Hey, over here!"

She probably was able to before, she just wanted to reverse-engineer Tenshi's catness-effect. She's not likely to use it much, of course ...

Misk

Just out of curiosity, do you plan on making big story arcs like this from now on?

Kimiko Muffin

Not very often. It's left me feeling kinda drained ...

Xan

Awww... And I was hoping for more stuff like this...

Kimiko Muffin

Oh, there'll be more stuff like it. They'll just be the exception, rather than the rule.

... and each individual story-arc won't take up just under 1/4 of the entire damn comic, like this one does right now ...

Asator

Of course not, after this thing 20 parts won't be 1/4 of the comic anymore.

Solarn

To be honest, I have no idea how you are going to do the retelling of UFO, since it's just about the only Windows Touhou game with a serious story (serious as in, not silly at all in any way).

Because seriously? The crew of the palanquin ship were totally the heroes of that story. They certainly acted like it. Reimu, Marisa and Sanae were just random minor characters who got involved, tried to screw everything up and then got manipulated into helping the heroes. The only important thing they did was defeating Byakuren at the very end. There wasn't really any "incident resolution" done.

Kimiko Muffin

The answer for the "how" is "in prose, not in the comic." That way I can be as serious as I like. ;3

Facteur Rien

"Patchouli, what does the circle say about her catness level?"
"IT'S OVER NINETYYYY!"
"WHAT?! NINETY? Where is no way the circle can be right!"
"I think it's right."

I lol'd.

SuperFush

It occurs to me that this story arc hit finished the climatic battle in a way very similar to Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha A's.

That is to say, utter ownage of the enemy by everyone's most powerful attack.

KuroKona

Dammit, Kimiko Muffin! It's 2 in the morning, I want sleep, and yet I can't stop reading.

Myrrh

ITS OVER NINETYYY >_<
xD For me the only good Scene in the whole Dragonball series xD
Good job! -thumb up-

Spirit Tsunami

35 panels=whoa

GS

Sakuya shouldn't be able to get catness. Animal characters are immune, right? She's obviously a dog. XD

I couldn't resist sob
