Post your favorate pairing
I'm afraid RemiSaku has been deemed old and busted by the new hotness of MeiSaku.
They literally started at about the same time.
Apparently every thread needs to have one of these, so here you go.
Best shrinemaiden pairing. Get on my level.
No argument there.
This thread needs more Baka
there is a startling lack of hijimiko in this thread
There is so little of it ;_;.
Even on fanfiction, there are so few, and that's including my own ;_;.
ReimuXCirnoshipper but since that's crack as all hell, here's Reimu and Marisa.
I'm not an avid touhou fan.. As such these are the only two characters I know to some extent..
But I SHIP. THEM. SO. HARD..
Requesting fist bump, >>1515411 sempai..
It's really strange, considering the potential for childhood friend romance and "Remilia's past" fan wank.
Yuuparu used to be my favourite, but now, keine/moukou. I posted most of my collections of both in the old thread.
I don't know why but this feels like it would work...somehow...
do you think they celebrate valentine's day in gensokyo?
Happy Valentines day
Do these two together get any love from /u/?
That isn't Touhou-specific. Happens for pretty much every mainstream fandom.
As usual the largest number of doujins are Touhou x faceless male, followed by futa, followed by pure yuri. That's directly related to ease of self-inserting by your average male reader.
Try not to worry about it too much, there's plenty of Touhou yuri regardless.
In sfw yuri works 90% are yuri related, rest is not about romance while maybe 1% could be considered hetero mostly with Rinnosuke or some human village male.
In Madoka or Nanoha or any mostly all-girls leading works the ratio is similiar.
I like Shiki x Akyuu or Shiki x Satori. In the former case, Akyuu dies and reincarnates every so often, so she's bound to have met Eiki before in a few different incarnations, and it was Eiki or her predecessor who appointed Satori as the mistress of the Old Hell, so there's a connection there, too. I also think that their temperaments suit one another.
Last one of this pairing. I don't want to hog the thread.
Nue x Seija
I would love to see some of this.
Here for something moderately crack
There's too little Armpit Miko pairing
And for something different...
Such regal couple.
Why does she keep that scroll with her all the time?
crack pairing, but one of the most beautiful story i ever read
Don't particularly care for the crack pairing, but I love this picture
>The most popular ones
I suppose that's a pretty good metric when it comes to Touhou.
I think MariAli is alright but YuuAli is the best.
also this, truly superb both story and artwork
This is probably my favorite touhou pic
So, Gensokyo. Is it a lesbian paradise of free love or a constantly overboiling sapphic cauldron of jealousy?
Depends on who you're talking about, just like real life.
I'd expect the older youkai are more relaxed about that sort of thing.
>I'd expect the older youkai are more relaxed about that sort of thing.
Aren't they the proudest and most territorial ones?
I don't really have a favorite, but Alice x Marisa is always a good one.
Start anywhere and then read the Touhou wiki for extra background if need be.
The actual 'canon' is extremely light, and the majority of the stuff you'll read (being /u/) is largely based on fanon.
Good ships to start with: Marisa X Reimu, Marisa X Alice, Sakuya X Remilia, Reimu X Yukari. They have a lot of Touhou on DynastyScans.
These are my favorite, as far as just being into Touhou for the fanart and doujins. These two are also cute: http://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/cute_keine_volcano_comic#1
Good drama and easily distilled backstories, and cuteness.
I don't think Reimu should be with anyone, at least not seriously. I like her as the aloof and lonely shrine maiden.
If they did it probably wasn't much, which is why I prefer Saku x Remi
I'd like Marisa/Alice a lot more if they were written as competent partners more often instead of the usual moeblob/self-sabotaging tsundere filth.
I still think The Reason Flowers Bloom is one of the cutest goddamn doujins I've ever read.
Is this Dream and Reality thing any good? I like stuff related to Maribel and Yukari.
Having finally read ZUN's Sealing Club stories, I was a bit surprised by Maribel's original characterization. Rather than the frail and kind girl who shows up in doujins and fanfics, she comes off as assertive and snobbish, particularly in the train ride story. I have no trouble imagining her growing up to be Yukari.
This artist, kobushi, is really good in general.
No, same guy I'd been posting. Kobushi.
kobushi is so rad. It's so shitty that pretty much none of his comics on danbooru are ever translated. They are so /u/ tastic and pretty much all end with Momiji and Aya having sex. I didn't save it but I love the quick piece where Aya tells Momiji that she's pregnant.
"Want to hear something good?"
"Lend me your ear for a second."
"Well, you see...
It looks like I'm pregnant."
I've just noticed looking through Kobushi's work that after a certain point Momiji frequently has that scar on the left side of her face. I know Kobushi made a doujin where Momiji has a whole bunch of bandages on her face and Aya is making her food (and sex, don't forget the sex). I like that he keeps that running from time to time.
no love for yamawriggle, rest in pieces
They have victory quotes against each other in the fighting games. They seem relatively friendly with each other. One of Meiling's seems to imply they sometimes spar together, which would be nice to see in a doujin.
ReiMari is a interesting ship due to the peculiar sexual tension caused by Reimu not knowing for sure if she will lose her connection to the gods if she has lesbian sex.
Reimu was raised by the previous Miko, but the previous Miko died at a young age when Reimu was very young, like 9 or 10.
Yukari Yakumo has actually taught her most of what she knows about being the Hakurei Miko. They have always had a strained relationship though, and Reimu thinks of her as like a crazy aunt that pops in from time to time causing trouble.
Although Reimu knows from history books that the Miko has to give up/will lose her powers if she has sex with a male there are no such clear cut answers if lesbian sex will also have the same effect. Yukari almost certainly knows but Reimu cannot bring herself to ask her for fear of the kind of ridicule and torment Yukari might put her through. Sanae might also know, but the same thing applies, Reimu and her are rivals and the two goddesses she lives with are incurable pranksters.
So the question goes unasked, but Reimu is really interested in Marisa. She is also jealous of Marisa's freedom
As much as Yukari likes messing with Reimu, I can't see her leaving anything that would affect the position of the Hakurei miko unclear. Besides, she'd miss the chance to give Reimu an incredibly detailed sex-ed lecture.
>Although Reimu knows from history books that the Miko has to give up/will lose her powers if she has sex with a male there are no such clear cut answers if lesbian sex will also have the same effect.
Oh please, not this bullshit plot device for lesbianism again.
Touhou is the last setting that needs it.
It doesn't make much sense either, since it would leave Gensokyo without a shrine maiden for the period between the old one conceiving and the new one maturing enough to beat up youkai.
That's exactly what I was looking for. Thank you.
