Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #92

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Sakuya Izayoi, Remilia Scarlet, Flandre Scarlet, Koishi Komeiji, Hong Meiling

Strangely enough, I came up with this one almost immediately after last week's comic, though the phrase "RED THE NIGHTLESS MOTHERF***ER"1 was borrowed from someone on Maidens of the Kaleidoscope whom I can't remember now. (Scarlet Sign 「Red the Nightless Castle」 is Remilia's bomb in Imperishable Night. Yes, she has an upgraded version, but that's not the joke.) So, Satori has the ability to copy other peoples' spell cards (with "Whatever Sign" replaced by just "Recollection"), and no explanation is given beyond "because she can read your mind," so I figure, why not Koishi, now that her Third Eye is open?

Also, I got tired of having zero consistency in characters' heights (you may recall that I had to change Flandre's height during the Catness arc at one point), so I've decided to permanently specify how tall each character will actually be in create.swf and stuff, and put it in a little text-file I can easily access.

In any event, I felt a need to specify exactly why Remilia dislikes FlanxKoishi. (Satori will get a voice for her reasons later).

Remember the sign above Flandre's door? Yeah, I decided that while I was updating things, I might as well change that stuff, too. Now if only KirbyM would make a normal-sized "in front of the SDM" background ...

Transcript

  1. (Sakuya is walking through the SDM's hallway.)
    Narration Box: My name is Sakuya Izayoi, and I'm the head maid of the Scarlet Devil Mansion.
    Narration Box Aside: Both of which became true in 1997, but that's an entirely different story.
  2. (She approaches the door to the basement, with a wrecked and crooked sign hanging above it.)
    Sign: BASEMENT - Warning! Extr(cut off)
    Narration Box: My job is divided between making sure the fairy-maids do their work, and keeping Flandre from exploding.
  3. (She descends the stairs to find Remilia standing on the bottom step, pouting petulantly.)
    Sakuya: Mistress Remilia?
    Remilia: Hmph!
    Narration Box: ... though lately, my efforts in *that* regard have been directed more at her sister.
  4. (Deeper into the basement, Koishi sits with Flandre's head in her lap, gently stroking her.)
    Remilia: (annoyed, off-panel) *Those two* are at it again.
    Sakuya: (sweatdrop, off-panel) I see ... Tell me again why you dislike their relationship so much?
    SFX: Tone of voice: you've never actually told me
  5. (Back to Sakuya and Remilia at the stairs.)
    Remilia: She is an unknown factor in any plans I might have had, much less going out with my sister! We knew hardly anything about her before, and since her Third Eye opened she's changed completely, to boot!
    Sakuya: So ... just because you weren't specifically planning on it?
  6. (Remilia turns to Sakuya in irritation.)
    Remilia: ... Is it just me, or have you been acting kinda contrary whenever we have discussions like this lately?
    Sakuya: (innocently) I only wish to help my lady make the best decisions ...
  7. (Remilia goes back to being pouty.)
    Sakuya: Well ... they *are* happy together. And they've each helped solve each other's problems ...
    Remilia: Hmph!
  8. (Sakuya turns to leave.)
    Sakuya: ... sigh ... Just ... Don't do anything you'll regret later, milady ...
    Remilia: I can if I want to! (aside) ... or ... wait.
  9. (Remilia sneaks up on Koishi and Flandre.)
    Koishi: Maybe a walk in the woods next time ...
    Flandre: Kay!
    Text: Fate Manipulation 「Koishi Komeiji」
    Text: First, her relationship descends into one of frustration.
  10. (Koishi and Flandre abruptly turn to darkly face Remilia, who sweatdrops.)
    Text: She breaks up after a long period of ... er ... um ...
  11. (Koishi looms menacingly in front of Remilia.)
    Remilia: (sweatdrop) Um ...
    SFX: THIIIRD EEEEEEYE
  12. (Outside the SDM, a ghostly Spell Card image of Koishi appears and Meiling reacts in surprise at an explosion coming from the basement.)
    Spell Card: Recollection 「RED THE NIGHTLESS MOTHERF***ER!」
    SFX: BABOON
    Meiling: Wha!?

1I'm possibly a little too amused by this.

I think that says more about Cirno, who also defeated Utsuho, you must remember. And sort-of-EX-Alice.

RozenMariku

REMILIA DOES LOVE FLANDRE :O

...Maybe. I can't tell from reading the comic.

Kimiko Muffin

Oh, she does love Flandre. She just has the body and mind of a ten-year-old, she doesn't know what to do with it.

ganbaru

The ''reason'' of Remilia seem to be rather weak. But for Satori, I would guess than it's because she worried about what would happen to her sister if something happen to Flandre or simply if they break nout.

?????

Isn't Koishi's third eye sealed?

?????

Isn't Koishi's third eye sealed?

Tewi Inonymous

The fallout from a flandre/koishi break up would be horrifying.

So I been reading Watsonian Versus Doylist

And on the TV tropes of Touhou Nekokayou it said:

Watsonian Versus Doylist: Occasionally, Muffin explains discrepancies and plotholes ("How did Koishi immediately steal Red The Nightless Castle from Remilia? According to Grimoire of Marisa, Satori needs to use Terrifying Hypnotism first!") with both forms ("I haven't read all of Grimore of Marisa/she got it from Flandre earlier").

So um...

WHERE THE HELL DID SOMEONE SAID THAT?!

CapedLuigisYoshi

Answer: Muffin himself put it in. Most of that page is Muffin's work.

Hunter 1

Yeah, that's the main issue with creators who are tropers: they tend to actually visit the site and keep tabs on their creation.

That goes double if the creation is something like a create.swf webcomic, where you don't have to do tons of art for it.

CapedLuigisYoshi

To be fair, it's not like any of us would be updating that page, since we're too lazy. (And Muffin didn't create the page...)

PMiller1

Seven and zero, Wow. Any who:

On My Page (I have no idar how to link: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PMiller1 ) I some Characters of OC on there.

Hey, That Remind Me, Muffin is it okay for you to have an Characters Page of your OC?

Kimiko Muffin

I'm keeping it to my user-page on the wiki. And you do links like this.

I wonder if the reason that Remilia is so bothered by the relationship is because she's jealous of Koishi. Remilia has been haphazardly taking care of Flandre and attempting to teach Flan self-restraint/to not blow people up, like with the Mokou and Kaguya tutor thing. Not only did nothing Remilia tried work, Koishi comes and fixes the problem in one swell foop. That Kaguya attributed Flan's change almost entirely to Koishi couldn't have helped.

Remilia's "she's changed completely" could just as well apply to Flan. Remilia may feel that she doesn't really know Flan anymore. She might even be afraid of losing her to Koishi. Add in normal older sister protectiveness and you've got a recipe for disaster.

It's not really rational but Remilia is the eternally preadolescent Scarlet Moon which is why she's not really thinking through her attempt to break them up. It'd be back to square one or worse. Or I could be over-thinking it.

Kimiko Muffin

Um ... sure, why not? (tvtropes, etc)

Shinku tsuki

I've always looked at Remilia like a caring old sister, but her responsability, and mostly the fact that Flandre is in the basement, made her have no contact with Flan. Remilia finally came to see Flan when she was going out with Koishi, and it was because she wanted to destroy their relationship, if i were her sister i would be mad at her. But when I think about Remilia...her sister is going out with someone who can read minds and who is a complete stranger...she made Flandre be more sane, and Remilia didn't even try, she hired tutors...
I think that she hates her because Remilia is too proud to admit that Koishi would be a better sister if she wasn't in love with Flan, and that she made mistakes with her sister. Although I admire her because she put her sister in the basement, i mean, who can do what she did to one's sister? no one. but it had to be done...
Remilia and Flandre are both immature, but they can think like grown-ups. I think that it's not the age that defines our intelligence, it's the time we've spended in life.

Inkerius

Sorta-necropost, but I decided this was too terrible to not share.
Ahem...

I guess Sakuya's just playing the role of...
*sunglasses*
...(Scarlet) Devil's Advocate.
