When you said C and D to me, Echo, I seriously had the biggest brain fart ever. I could NOT think of any political C words to save my life. Then when I lied and you asked me what the C word was, arghhhhhhhh
*waits for moonlight* *becomes werewolf* *eats Pasonia for making this system*
OOC: I hate you, Echo. I should've seen it coming when you PMed me last Thursday.
Day 2 4:03PM (time froze; the equivalent would've been about five hours)
After a while, Pasonia finally felt his surroundings again, as Sakuya noticed his eyes flutter open. "I... blacked out," blurted the host.
By this time, the players have pretty much reconciled with each other; some have already begun to pay their respects to the two fallen who were, sad to say, rather needless sacrifices.
"Echo, have you spoken to the group?"
Echo nodded his head.
"Okay... There's no way I'm going to be able to continue this knowing that one of you has a brain the size of a large bowl of ramen. You can release the time-lock now..."
The surroundings returned to a state of normal color, one not heavily tinted with blue.
"Since things have come to this, I've to tell you where I'm from. I'm also an experiment, like you guys." "...But, you aren't under anyone's control," remarked Echo.
"Of course, I, uh... the right word for this is 'escape', but in truth I just obliterated my suppressors at first chance. I'm here not to do this 'experiment' with Version 10, which is what the werewolves have been injected with, but rather I was here to escape the pursuit of the US military. They created me, then saw me as a threat when I ran off. They want me dead."
The rest had nothing to offer to Pasonia.
"Don't worry for me, before you guys get hit by the Stockholm Syndrome or something. I'll get Ms. Izayoi to transport you guys to another town. I'm sorry, but Version 10 doesn't actually have a cure---" "Hakurei Jinja..."
Pasonia side-glanced Sakuya, then decided that there might be hope after all. The more important thing now, though, was escaping Damonville, yet even that was suddenly interrupted by a blast from nowhere.
"Whoa! Where'd that come from?" Yelped Pasonia. "They managed to fire something in that can evade the Patriot systems! Sakuya-san!"
A portal opened up, and Pasonia quickly urged the rest into the portal. At the last man that scrambled in - nardi11011, Sakuya tried to pull Pasonia in, but he refused.
"I... can't. I would rather perish here than run. Send my regards to Ms. Hakurei. Farewell."
As the rest of the group watched in horror, hundreds of soldiers burst right into the Ballroom as the portal closed, leaving Pasonia to fight a one-man war.
At the end of the day, the humans and the wolves have achieved a crude co-victory...
Several months later...
nardi11011 was beginning to enjoy it in this new world that Pasonia had gotten them into. Though the place was bereft of technology, the fun in watching stuff happen in and around the Kourindou was nothing like that on Earth, so to speak.
"Hey, nard," blurted Todesengal. "Tode! How're you guys doing now?"
Tode showed off a fluffy wolf tail, a side-effect of the Version 10 serum. "Pretty badly, I guess. Luckily, this place has garments tailor-made for just about any kind of people. It does take some getting used to having one extra tail at the waist, though."
"How about the other wolves?"
"I... don't know. Basically, given our unique status, we're a race of our own if we're going to use the Fairies as a comparison. We can even spar with them if we'd like. I guess it'll be fine to say the wolves are permanently staying here."
"Not going back?"
Tode wagged her tail. "I sure wish we could, but the wolfy effect is here to stay, I'm afraid, and our world has never been kind to freaks. Pasonia left us with so little information to deal with this."
"I hear you guys are going back to Damonville?" Blurted Tode, wanting to change the topic.
"Uhh, yea, most of us are going back to Damonville," interjected Echo. "We all left our passports and whatnot in the Meridian Hotel anyway. Since this land of people speaks Japanese, it makes sense that this "border" thing they told us before leads either to Hokkaido or the northern tip of Kyushu. None of us want to be charged by the Japanese police for illegal entry, I guess."
"Hey, Echo, you leaving?"
"Me? I... don't know, either. Bickering with the shop owner of Kourindou was fun, I guess. But..."
From here, you guys choose if you want Echo to:
1) Stay on in Gensokyo 2) Return to Damonville 3) Remain undecided
This is the final vote before I end this game off. A PM has been sent to all players regarding a restart, and of this vote.
13/05/2012 - RIP Danzai, may you be among the constellations.
