The Rain in Japan Falls Mainly on the Moriya Clan

Gensokyo Festival day 5: Rain ~The Rain in Japan Falls Mainly on the Moriya Clan~ Frigid gales were buffeting the Moriya Shrine. Water lashed down from the grey skies to hammer on the roof, spilling off the blue stone tiles in waves. It was hardly a day to be outside, hence how startled Suwako was to hear a knock on the door. "Who the heck could that be?!" cried Suwako, her wide eyes betraying how startled she was to hear a knock on the door. She laid down her battered NES controller. "Kanako, could you get that?" "Of course." Kanako took advantage of Suwako's lapse in concentration and hit the accelerator, overtaking her pixellated go-kart with ease. "Sanae, answer the door, won't you?" "Okay!" Sanae stood up and ran to the door. She slid it open, only to cry out in shock as a sopping-wet Youmu fell into her arms. "Sanae, you came for me!" gasped Youmu, clinging Sanae as her own damp, flimsy kimono clung to her shivering body. "It was awful out there. I don't

Gensokyo Festival day 7: Dungarees ~The Super Touhou Sisters Super Show~ "Damn it all to heck... I can't believe this happened to Kotohime of all people! That stupid, selfish kappa! I'll make her pay." Fairies dove out of Marisa's way as she stormed through the forest. It was rare to see her so angry, especially with Reimu by her side, although it was also rare to see Reimu in her dark red dungarees. "She's really gone too far this time," said Reimu, stepping over a tanuki who had turned into a teapot. "Kidnapping is one thing, but eating a woman's liver...!" "You're gonna kill her, right?" asked Marisa. Reimu nodded, her face grim. "It

Nap Time with Chen

Gensokyo Festival day 6: Sleep ~Nap Time with Chen~ “Good evening, ladies and Rinnosuke! You’re watching Nap Time with Chen, the nation’s favourite and only four-hour-long TV show about a nekomata having a snooze!” Letty and Cirno shared a look of considerable bemusement. They watched Ran talk about Chen in a stage whisper for several minutes before shifting the camera over to Chen’s bed, where the young starlet was snoozing comfortably in a nest of blankets and fluffy pillows. Ran left the camera facing Chen and wandered off to read a book. In Cirno’s comfortably frigid igloo, the indifference was deaf

Gensokyo Festival day 3: Adventure ~Marisa and Narumi Take Youkai Mountain~ A maiden from the mystic woods Went out to roam one day. ‘Neath arching boughs and golden leaves She gaily made her way. The sun was high, but well the breeze Did chill her skin, and so She stamped her feet and strode apace Which set her cheeks aglow. A winding path the witch did walk A mile along, until She saw before her rank on rank Of snowdrops on the hill. Marisa loved a sight so fair. Mere months the flock would last Ere sun and squirrels claimed the blooms And left them to the past. A voice broke through Marisa’s thoughts. “What brought

Gensokyo Festival day 2: Food ~The Three Fairies of Light have a Feast~ OR: ~Sunny Milk, Luna Child and Star Sapphire May Be Known as the Three Fairies of Light, but there’s Nothing Light about their Appetites~ Warm sunlight was casting its orange glow through the curtains, but Luna Child felt quite all right where she was. Her blanket was perfectly warm and snuggly and her pillow was as soft as ever a pillow could be. With a sigh, Luna burrowed under her soft pillow and sank into restful dreams. “Luna! Luna! Get up! Get up! Get up!” Luna awoke to a terrible commotion. Some unseen force was throwing her up and down on

Gensokyo Festival day 1: Beginnings ~What are Little Girls Maid Of?~ “Did you really think I wouldn’t find her?” “Ngh… I-I won’t let you…” Remilia’s lungs burned with every word she forced out, but the memory of the girl’s pleading eyes drove her on. “You won’t take her! Not in a million years!” “And who’s going to stop me? You?” The hunter’s grip was like iron, his sneer very much like a sneer. “I’m going to kill you, then her, then your wretched little sister. It’s what you deserve.” In the back of the cabin, th

Let's Shake Things Up a Little

~Long-overdue Gensokyo Festival Day 29: Original~ ~Let's Shake Things Up A Little~ Meiling's hoe hit the dry, lumpen soil with a soft crunch. She deftly pulled up a clump of earth and plucked out a weed, which she tossed into her wheelbarrow. She whistled a merry tune as she gardened, turning the toil into something that might as well have been fun. Meiling had heard that every day was a holiday if you enjoyed your job, and while she couldn't say she prefered her work to sunning herself on the beach or reading manga, it didn't feel anything like a chore. "You are getting on well, I take it?" "Hm?" Meiling glanced over her shoulder and sa

Through bleary eyes, she managed to identify Cirno standing there with a basket and Clownpiece wearing lace-up boots a couple of sizes too big. "We're taking Flandre on a picnic! Can you tell her we're here?" said Clownpiece eagerly. "Oh, that's... That sounds lovely..." Meiling yawned grandly and noted that Cirno's basket contained a single large watermelon. "I'll go and tell her-" "She's already coming." Cirno and Clownpiece both jumped. Sakuya was perched on

My Bio
I'm an amateur writer and Walfas-comic-doer who hopes some day to make stories the entire world can enjoy. I've always loved stories, both creating them and enjoying them in a wide variety of forms, and I'm always trying to hone my skills and/or have a laugh.

I also care deeply about equality, so expect to see many different kinds of people in any original works I write. And just to be clear, I'm probably going to make more than just Touhou fanworks.

Here's my fanfiction.net page: www.fanfiction.net/u/3346982/

And my Archive of our Own profile: archiveofourown.org/users/Aard…

And my almost-professional blog about a British children's gameshow which involved virtual creatures doing various challenges, which seemed like magic when I first saw it: rememberingbamzooki.wordpress.…

Excerpt from Marisa's Father's Newspaper Column

                            Opinion by YOSHIROU KIRISAME THE POLITENESS OF THE MODERN YOUTH towards waiters, shopkeepers and other lower orders is a heart- coldening sign of the degradation of our simpering nancy-boy village. During the halcyon days of my youth, a waitress or a shopkeeper would know her place, but now, with women growing softer and accepting youkai into their zeitgeists, the proper order of life seems to have been reversed. Only the previous week, I was shocked to witness my own estranged daughter engage in a wanton act of kind- ness against an undeserving bar wench at the Laughing Ronin. In a characteristic act of
