Outside Eientei, Marisa and Reimu’s battle continues.

Reimu draws a spell card, Divine Spirit." The card splits into several fragments, "Fantasy Seal." The fragments turn into large orbs of various colors.

Anticipating that Reimu is going to launch the orbs at her, Marisa prepares to take evasive action.

However, Reimu sends the orbs into her own body and she starts glowing.

"Huh?" Marisa, who was not expecting Reimu’s action with her Fantasy Seal technique, lowers her guard, What is she up to?

Reimu extends her arms toward Marisa and releases the energy stored in her body as a smaller white Master Spark-like laser.

"HOLY SHIT!" Marisa frantically, with little time, draws a spell card and declares, "Lovesignmasterspark!" The cark turns into energy, which immediately turns into Marisa’s Master Spark, however, with no time to charge, it comes as a much smaller laser, slightly smaller than Reimu’s.

The two lasers clash with a flash of bright light and both the miko and witch summon up as much energy as they can to overpower the other’s attack. However, Reimu, who had attacked first, has the upper hand in the struggle, quickly deciding to press the advantage, focusing the card's energy on Marisa...

Marisa simple froze. "How did she..." Then she was knocked back into several bamboo shoots, a cry of pain as she collapses into the pile.

In Eientei’s left corridor, Youmu suddenly encounters Reisen, who was standing in wait, "It’s you, that rabbit! Return Reimu to normal!"

Reisen shrugs, "Looks like you found me. As for your ‘request,’ allow me to see how your friend is doing..." Reisen closes her eyes and, after a moment of focusing, sees through Reimu’s eyes during her battle with Marisa, watching Reimu approach the breathless Marisa. Marisa quickly throws a small set of needles wildly at Reimu, who almost casually ducks the volley.

A slight grin formed on Reisen's face. Hrm... I have a way to win this for sure now. Looking at the two, she promptly lied, "Looks like she's losing this battle. Alright, I'll do as you say."


Youmu, who feels Reisen submitted too easy, grabs the hilt of the sheathed Roukanken and asks, "What are you up to?"

"Exactly as you say," answers Reisen, "I’m releasing your friend from my control..."

---

Marisa breathed more heavily. I can't have lost... Not like this.

Reimu stops, her eyes glowing red as an illusory image of Reisen appears in front of Reimu, immediately causing Marisa to shout, "What have you done to her?!?! Let her GO!"

The image of Reisen simply grinned. "Now, why should I? I've got every advantage... And you actually did pretty well. Really, a little luck in the right angle and you'd have had this." Raising one hand, she let the other clap down upon it a few times.

"Wait... What?" Marisa shook.

"See, my insanity is as a virus... I can bring it from one host to another, especially when the second one is weakened." Reisen grinned. "Call it a compliment that I'm going out of my way to take you as well!"

Marisa shook, as a headache started to come on... "You little... I resisted the moon, and I'll resist-" Then the headache grew, as she winced again.

Reisen smirked. "I'm extending myself a bit... Haven't met much resistance when taking two people at once before. You're quite the catch." Then her eyes flashed red again, causing Marisa to shudder again.

"... Thank you for the compliment, mistress." Marisa spoke in monotone, as her eyes dulled as her resistance crumbled.

Reisen smiled. "Left path, be quick. The right path can be handled by it's guards. Protect your mistress."

Reimu and Marisa both nodded. "Understood."

As the image of Reisen faded, Reimu smiled a little. "... Mistress has overestimated herself a bit."

As Marisa started to get up, she nodded again, her usual grin forming on her face. "But we will follow her regardless, won't we?"

Reimu nodded. "But of course. She *is* Mistress, after all, whether or not we're thinking about it."


Back in the left hall, the real Reisen sighed. "Done. This is really going to make things a lot more difficult for me... But you will lose anyways, I can assure you of that." Grinning, she calmly looked towards Youmu... Inwardly, however, she thought, To think that I just spent quite a bit of effort spreading my power out even more, and the hardest part's keeping the lie believably well-acted.

(Proceed through the next part of the Youmu vs. Reisen fight verbatim.)


Reisen’s eyes widen, "What? How did you recover from that?"

Youmu answers, "You don’t need to know. Just remember that whatever mind tricks you have are useless against me!"

"Fine then..." growls Reisen, as she pauses for a second, to check through Marisa's eyes for a second, seeing them right near the door. The image seemed rather fuzzy, but... "I don’t need them to deal with the likes of you." As the door burst open, revealing the two, Reisen grinned.

Youmu turned around. "Ah! Reimu, Marisa!" She smiled, immediately causing a look of shock to appear on Reisen's face, though seen only by the duo.

Reimu waved a bit, stunning Reisen. "Hey, Youmu."

Youmu looked towards Reisen. "Three on one... Think you can win this now?"

Reisen shook. "H... How..."

Marisa quickly lifted her broom, swatting Youmu in the back of the head with enough force to knock her down.

Reimu grinned. "I think someone mis-counted a little. Your own statement now applies as though Mistress had said it."

Immediately, both Youmu and Reisen started to sputter in respective panic, the words "what" and "how" coming out quite quickly.

Marisa shrugged. "Pretty simple, really, Rei-sama. Your power over us hasn't precisely faded, but you're splitting your attention... How many ways? The moon, me, Reimu..." She counted on her fingers. "Plus I resisted, and I noticed me and Reimu got more conversative as we ran down the hall, so you were probably using some of your power there, too... Only natural that something had to give, so why not let us think, as long as we're otherwise still under your power?"

Reimu simply pointed her gohei down to pin Youmu before she got back up. "It works out pretty well, really. It lets us be more creative in our actions. More fun that way." She grinned.

Reisen slowly calmed, as, after a few checks, she was sure her insanity was still affecting the both of them. "... Well, then." Stepping in. "What do we do to this girl? I'm not going to risk splitting my hold further."

Reimu looked at Youmu. "... Take her swords. They're the symbol of her resistance, she said so herself earlier."

Youmu squirmed, but Reimu held firm. Marisa grinned, stepping in. "Ten minutes under mistress' power and I'm already getting some cool treasures, ze!" Laughing a bit, she dropped down towards Youmu...


Patchouli looked at Yukari.

"... Five A.M. The light's color, according to the telescope, has not changed."

Yukari sighed. "Then we lose, I guess... Kaguya has Gensokyo."

"Actually..." Patchouli smiled a bit. "There's a catch."

"Eh?"

"The moon has to set eventually, or the sun's light will eclipse it. When the sun rises, Kaguya's power wanes. She only has the night."

Yukari shook her head. "And so it ends-"

And then Keine showed up out of nowhere.

Yukari paused. "Wait... How'd YOU show up? I'm the one with the random teleport trick!"

Keine grinned. "Well, I'm the incarnation of Deus Ex Machina in Touhou Fanfics where Bad Ends ensue, so it makes sense that I just show up at the right time. I just write history back, change one little thing, and...."


"HOLY SHIT!" Marisa frantically, with little time, draws a spell card and declares, "Lovesignmasterspark!" The cark turns into energy, which immediately turns into Marisa’s Master Spark, however, with no time to charge, it comes as a much smaller laser, slightly smaller than Reimu’s.

The two lasers clash with a flash of bright light and both the miko and witch summon up as much energy as they can to overpower the other’s attack. However, Reimu, who had attacked first, has the upper hand in the struggle.

Here I am once again... thinks the struggling Marisa, The hard-working Marisa is on the losing side and the laid-back Reimu is on the winning side, even if she is not herself. This brings back memories...

(Insert skip here!)

...

The memory runs through Marisa’s mind. Finally, she yells out loud, "Screw talent! I’ve worked and studied hard and I’m not going to be beaten by something that just ‘came’ to someone! RRRAAARRGGHHH!" Marisa exerts herself and her Master Spark becomes more powerful and overpowers Reimu’s attack. Reimu is knocked several feet away...

Meanwhile, in the other timeline...

"And now we're locked in a sort of historical mobius strip," Keine explained. "I've just edited out the event that most directly leads to the villain's victory, producing a new timeline. No guarantees THIS one will work out favorably, of course, but..." Keine grinned. "Well, things cascade out. One little change of events can effect the entire world's fate. I just have to hope I chose the correct event to change. The timeline range was only a few hours, so I'm not THAT tired out, but..." Keine breathed out.

Remilia simply grinned. "Tea?"

Keine shook her head. "I've heard rumors of what Sakuya makes it out of."

Meiling calmly sipped the tea. "... Oh, you mean the blood rumor? That's just the cakes."

Remilia froze in shock. "... You're not supposed to reveal that!"
