...I forgot to say this on the day, but yesterday (locally, anyway; if we go by hours it was about ten hours ago) is a year since Paradise Lost started. To anyone who reads or plays in this, thank...

"You underestimate her, I think," Miko answers with a gentle chuckle. "We go back some time, as I'm sure you know, and I've never managed to find anything she didn't already plan for. Sometimes, of...

"What, that place?" Reimu asks, rather taken aback. "Now that won't do, far too upscale for me," she objects, but the smile lingers on her face. "But that never stopped me, and you know that by now,...

Silence falls over Mokou's home, as the apparent madwoman suddenly rises from her comatose state in blinding fury. Her tirade against empty space, against nothingness caged, self-righteous rage...

"...How many stories did you really hear, anyway," the other shrine maiden asks wearily, "if you really think I get up the first time someone calls me?" Interrupting her time. Hah. Now that was a...

"I tried, for a few..." the Singer begins, then falters. "I tried before," she concludes, the exact memory apparently escaping her. "It didn't help." Without her usual pauses or hesitation, she is...

The Titanic starts on what may be its final voyage, slow and hesitant; was it afraid of leaving, or was the river so unwilling to set them free? Their world crumbles around them, the murderer and the...

There she was again. Eiki's face, right in front of hers, under that starless, empty sky. How long had it been? "...Ah, you're awake. Good. Are you...

"Whuh?" The shrine maiden's answer - the older one, in any case - is mumbled and unceremonious, clearly half-asleep. "Home, sure. Awake? ...Guess so, now. Gah, way too early for this, barely slept at...

A mumbled apology in place of an answer, or even any outright refusal to answer. It would have taken strength the spider lily no longer had. An apology it would be, then, from one of Koishi's few...

Gensokyo was and had always been paradise. That is, someone else's paradise, just as the old world was. When it was a land of youkai, with humans preyed upon and pushed to the margins in their small,...

Forgive her. ...Of course. Of course they- no, she would. There was no reason for it, no cause for her to be forgiven, nothing she had done to deserve this. And yet, here they were. None of it was...
