(no subject)

*It is said that there are times and places for everything. Times that makes a subject either appropriate or more fitting, and places that let a subject have meaning or just enhance the mood. Let us assume, that one this rather odd island, that the correct time and place has been made. Yes, a clearing, deep in the... woods or rather, the closest thing possible. Surrounded by trees that you can barely peer through, a fire in the middle of the clearing and logs to sit on. Time? Night, the time when the lack of light alone can bring about terror from you. You may not have reason to be in this clearing, or even know that it exists. However, there are always those who feel like going for a walk and just end up coming across, those who may know of it already and want to be there or those who feel the urge to satisfy a newborn desire and enter this domain.

Here, how ever you may have come here, you will find a lady in blue robes, who carries an odd presence about her. Maybe it could do with the fact she is floating. No matter about that, as soon, the time to begin is near.*

Welcome. Tonight we will be telling ghost stories. Won't you join the fun? I'm sure everyone could tell something.

((ooc note: And of course, do feel free to threadhop for mass story funtimes.))

Once upon a time, a certain ghost princess with far too much free time on her hands decided to steal the spring.

The ghost princess even bothered a dear old friend of hers, going so far as to wake her from her peaceful slumber, to weaken the boundary between life and death so that the ghost princess' plan could come to fruition.

Isn't that what a ghost story is?

Of course, the dear old friend obliged, even though the ghost princess so rudely awoke her.

And so, the ghost princess successfully managed to steal a great quantity of spring. This, of course, raised the ire of the local shrine maiden. A certain witch and maid might have been involved as well.

The abridged version it is then: The irritated shrine maiden tracked down the ghost princess and delivered swift justice. Justice prevailed, and peace was restored.

... Did she actually use her orbs that time? Oh well.

[identity profile] 2010-10-21 11:34 pm (UTC)(link)
In any case, the moral of the story: An angry shrine maiden is far scarier than any ghost.

My, that would be quite a pity, wouldn't it? I rather like Gensokyo in its intact state.

Sadly, I've yet to actually meet the Moriya girl myself.

[identity profile] 2010-10-22 12:09 am (UTC)(link)
When it comes time to meet her, I very well may. Those gods that are always at her side may spoil any sort of entrance I can come up with, however.

Aren't you mistaking me with a certain vampire?

[identity profile] 2010-10-22 01:32 am (UTC)(link)
Hm. I guess 'the best recipes of how to prepare your human' do not count?

[Don't worry, he's joking.]

I also know the ones about 'the woman who becomes a mother', 'the angel that stole the devil's horns' and 'the seven friends in the castle in the sky'.

It pretty much is, with a slight twist. It's not my favorite story but females seem to get creeped out by it.

[identity profile] 2010-10-22 01:45 am (UTC)(link)
Hm. Do you like stories with vigilantes or knights in them?

[identity profile] 2010-10-22 01:51 am (UTC)(link)
I'd say it is, though some may contradict me. It's not a happy story, though.

[identity profile] 2010-10-24 11:45 pm (UTC)(link)
Fair enough. Shall I begin, then?

[identity profile] 2010-10-25 12:48 am (UTC)(link)
Well, then...

[And he begins to spin a terrifying yet hopeful tale about the end of a culture and how six friends and a girl they just met escape from it on an airship, traveling around without aim nor goal just to realize that the same thing that ended their culture was also on the ship, hiding inside the head of one of them.]
