"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...

"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...

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,...
