      Thanks for being patient Hgamer and Mack, i finally finished part III, awkward i know, but i needed to get past it :P I'm working on IV so i'll post it later. I can't write for Mokou at all but hopefully this will suffice


      I walked along the path slowly in the afternoon light, the Scarlet Devil Mansion loomed in the background and I was happy to hear silence instead of the usual symphony of explosions. The money Oni gave me jingled cheerfully in my pocket, reflecting my mood. Now the question was where to eat? I didn’t want to go out for a lavish meal, so it came to Mystia Lorelei or Fujiwara no Mokou. Mystia was a Night Swallow and generally enjoyed annoying people and scaring humans. One of her good points was she ran a great Lamprey stand, mainly as a protest against Yakitori (grilled chicken on sticks) due to being a bird. Mokou was originally a human but she drank the Hourai elixir a good 1300 years ago and became immortal. She ran a Yakitori stand and was therefore at odds with Mystia. She was a recluse of sorts so we generally had a good relationship.

      Normally I’d have to weigh it carefully but today was an exception. I’d been eating fish all week, definitely chicken. I adjusted my course for the bamboo forest, it was a good way away, but it was early afternoon I had time.

      At a little before sunset I finally collapsed into a seat at the Yakitori stand, dropping my swords and baggage to the side. Mokou handed me the chicken and I eagerly digged in. Formally the daughter of some important aristocrat or other, Mokou lived in a way most considered extremely reclusive, alone in the bamboo forest, but close to Eintei, despite Kaguya Houraisan, her bitter rival, living there. She was more on the developed side than most of the residents of Gensokyo, though it might be just her baggy red pants and flowing silver/lavender hair. Ruggedness and constant fighting molded her into a compact fighting unit who could already kill easily without her manipulation of fire. She covered her pants with charms I suppose were meant to protect against fire damage due to the discoloration of her shirt, lacking them. She was one of the few like Koakuma that possessed red eyes without looking like a psycho monster. Well, most of the time anyway.

      Mokou finished passing me a little diluted sake and took out a cigarette. “Another fight with Kaguya?†I asked after finishing a bit of chicken and reaching for a second. She growled, took a long draw and sighed. “Yeah, she didn’t put up much of a fight, too tired she says, she’s so damn condescending.†She replied, not coldly, but one could tell she was in a bad mood. Immortality had its advantages. “You win?†“Yeah, wasn’t any fun though, immortalities going to her head.†She replied with a grimace, “I wish she’d actually fight me seriously.†I took another big bite of chicken, “So why you angry?†maybe the buzz was getting to me considering that’s the most retarded thing to ask any angry person, much less one who could barbeque more than chicken. “Well, she opened an old wound if you will.†She replied carefully after a distinct “danger†eye flash. “Sorry,†I replied and decided to shut up, the last thing I needed was to be barbequed by Mokou. We finished in relative silence, not awkward, but maybe thoughtful. I dropped the coins on the table and picked up my stuff. I wasn’t really looking for a specific place, I just kinda dropped where I felt like it, but for now I just continued down the road, sunset beginning to cast golden light through the trees.

      Twilight finally began to descend on the world and I found myself near the Scarlet Devil Mansion again, my legs began to hurt mildly so I figured I’d drop here. I found a nice clearing and covered myself with my overcoat; it wasn’t cold enough to justify lighting a fire, plus the moon and stars were shining brightly enough, the last thing to pass over my mind was hope to avoid a hangover before I was out for the count.

      Due to the inefficiency of journals to post stories i was wondering if anybody knew a good site to post such things so i can just send a link rather than having to post it all on here, plus i'm working on multiple stories.

      Short i know, i'll post a better journal later,

      Well, only 2 more weeks until i gain freedom, than i get a nice long time before next quarter, plenty of time to goof off, draw, and hopefully get a new comp.
      I'm finally done with most of my busy work so i might continue the fanfic soon, (to my two readers)
      Math hates me, but unfortunately in the battle of me vs. Math...Math wins.
      traffic gets randomly bad now, i have no clue why, it's like fate wants to screw with me.
      Also been randomly playing N64 lol old school! Back when everything was colorful and made of polygons!

      I also have an idea about shooters, i'm getting tired of the old formula of "You run out of health and die...even if you get shot in the foot." so i'd like to make the character composed of different body sections and have them affected role wise, i.e. when shot in the leg you move slower, when shot in the arm you can't aim as well. i know Fallout tried to incorporate this but i'd like to make one with a shooter feel and so you can actuallyhit things without VATS. meh it;s an idea.

      So ends the pointless journal to make it look like i'm doing something

      You know those days you go through, when nothing works? I believe this one is mine. Need to leave house at 7:00, got up at 6:47. Threw down some breakfast, figured out there was no milk, went out to get some. Left at 7:10, 10 minutes later than i should've. Stomach started hurting due to eating too quick.

      And oh joy traffic, not the normal meh traffic, the freeway was temporarily set to 10 MPH speed limit. FOR 36 MILES! People were lucky i didn't smash them in the bumper. Got there beyond way late for Calculus, and we're doing implicit differentiation, a.k.a. the only thing i NEEDED from the class. I also need to write a four page essay by 3:00 today.

      If i was Yuuka with bags, crows feet, and a bigger scowl on monday. than today i'm Yuuka with unlimited master spark, and high on one of those drugs that make you insane with fury. Please for the love of god no one anger me off today, i only got a plastic knife but in this state i'm sure i can kill someone with it...

      Boom

      (Oh yeah, and Onemanga might cancel some of my favorite series' on counts of "pornography" Bull, the gritty realistic ones are why i even read manga. yep, sorry, just slipped my mind.)

    • Irony, not always bad

      Alright, in order to clue you in to the significance of this let me rundown what i am, an otaku, a gamer, a nerd, and a former Marching band member. Attitude: cynical. Saying as much i'm also a college freshman, got the picture. Didn't go to senior prom in high school either, i hate big parties and didn't have anyone to go with.

      So i left high school, presumably forever. Then suddenly my good friend of three years calls and wants to take me to her senior prom, (I'm a year older). Irony caused much lol's, and now i saw finally some irony that's not a bad thing. I never expected anything high school related besides my kid going to ever happen to me again. Of course i'm going, older people are allowed to go, schedule is a little weird but should be fine with some teacher's pet string pulling. Perhaps i will post a couple of pictures after, i was debating on wether to do so and this seems like the perfect opportunity.

      Also i'm still computer hunting so if you know a good Desktop PC company please tell.

      fate may be turning out for the better or not, who knows?
