    There was a scowl crossing Granny Weatherwax’s face. It had passed far beyond her mouth, drifted into the glare of her eyes and drilled into her bones, so great was the displeasure she was feeling. Any normal human would have been on their knees and begging to know what they’d done so grievously, grievously wrong.

    Apparently the girl on the broom opposite her was far too oblivious to even notice.

    “So, tell me, young’ whippersnapper,” the witch icily asked, “What did yer’ say about practicin’ this wizards magic of yours?”

    Marisa grinned, smiled back. “I said, old lady, magic’s all about power, ze! If something’s going on, all you’ve gotta do is find the bad guys and beat them up!”

    And that was the thing about Granny Weatherwax: She thought in tales. But the very fact that this young.. upstart!.. existed made her bristle.

    “…What kind of story is that?”

    Once again, Marisa shrugged. “A short one?”

    De Worde looked at the pictures. "I can see what you've been going for, but.." he gestured weakly at neat rows of black and white newspaper prints behind him. "We've already done a full story for today, and your.. material isn't exactly suitable for the front page.

    "But-" The crow tengu was crestfallen, even he could see that. He sighed.

    "Perhaps I could fit these in one of the magazines! Would that be ok? Drop the prints off with the dwarves in the back and it'll be in the next run."

    "I-I guess it's better than nothing." With drooped wings, Hatate slunk off.

    Back to work. Worde studied the headlines and wondered if it was too late to get a very fast coach out of the city. He dropped his forehead into his palms. Of course it was too late.

    The headlines: "Boxers or Briefs: Vetinari's secrets revealed! Editorial by A. Shameimaru."

    Nuggan frowned and wiggled his lip. It had the effect of making his moustache undulate, which he felt expressed distaste with the minimum amount of effort. Offler eyed the smaller newcomer with his usual unreadable expression, but the single thick string dripping from the corner of his snout gave away his hunger.

    Blind Io angled two of his attending eyes to stare at each of the two figures, and a further two for that Hat. It was a Hat, too, not just any old hat.
    "I take it you have found yourselves suddenly in possession of an excess of belief. Nothing less would have brought you here."

    The tall woman with the strange arrangement of rope and paper smiled knowingly, re-folded her arms and nodded curtly at her accomplice, who hopped - somehow, she gave the impression of hopping, even when she walked - up to the game-board and began placing pieces.
    "Ha!" The Lady let out a short laugh. "Well now, this is interesting."

    Destiny stood, his face reddening. "They shouldn't be here. They don't _belong_ here." He raised a finger and pointed at the short one's hat "I never knew they were coming. Isn't that a good enough sign that we should throw them out?"

    His words fell on deaf ears. A pinkish piece had just been placed, and when he looked closely he noticed that clouds of tiny, tiny butterflies were flying from its sleeves...

    After a long pause, Death spoke.
    "YOU KNOW," he stopped again, holding his scythe up to the light "I HAD A SORT OF HOLIDAY A WHILE AGO, AND IT CAUSED ALL SORTS OF PROBLEMS."
    The other Death just lay there, lying against the side of the little boat, head and arms dangling over the edge. Her scythe was, the first Death concluded, not as sharp as his. Nor was it as practical.

    Death sat in silence again, contemplating things. What things, nobody could guess. His star-point eyes seemed to twinkle. "AND EVEN IF THE SCENERY IS DULL, THIS IS A VERY NICE BOAT."

    The new priestess at the Temple of Small Gods was causing quite a stir. A crowd was gathering to observe this strangely-dressed woman and her donation box. You couldn't forget that it was there, what with how often she beat the side of it with her fancy stick. Very few people had actually donated anything, but an impressive collection of bottletops, franked stamps and IOU notes was building inside the glorified - nay, the deified crate.

    As with any crowd, this one had attracted the presence of a certain Seller of Theoretically Edible Pies (that is, they'd be edible once the wizards of UU opened a hole to a world where the better-left-unknown was the primary foodstuff, and CMOT and the like touted finest cuts of identifiable animal).

    "Luvverly Sausage-inna-bun! Getcher Luvverly Sausage-inna-bun! Meat Pies, so fresh it don't know its dead! Deli-"
    "Ah, excuse me. I've been asked to buy everything you have."
    A girl in a green outfit was staring at Dibbler as if he offended her with his presence - something most people did when they were that close to his unique brand of pie.
    "Really? More than once at once? That'll be..." Dibbler trailed off as he counted the pies and sausages on his tray. The girl thrust a bag onto the tray. It was open.

    Dibbler had only just taken in that it was full of golden Rhinu when he realised his tray was being carried off by the blunt, if polite girl. He watched, awestruck, as she presented it to an even more unusually-dressed woman in pink, who seemed to be the opening of some interdimensional horror, so quickly were the pies disappearing.

    While he stared in awe, something black and white interrupted his field of vision. When he'd stopped feeling giddy, Dibbler noticed two more strange things. First, his bag of gold was gone. Second, the woman was still standing up, and wasn't even throwing up on her green-clothed friend. No, she was smiling at him.

    Making a profit from a crowd could happen any day. This day, CMOT decided, was not the kind of day for that. This was the kind of day when you prayed, made a token offering and hid under the table in case the frost giants returned. Dropping a dollar into the strange red girl's donation box, he beat a hasty exit.

    but Yukari doesn't really fight, so any OH GOD, EPIC BATTLE bullshit would be horribly forced much like something Chado would right ending in her gapping a nuke or something equally out of character.

    She isn't the direct strength kind of character, there are plenty other characters who show off huge powerful blasts and godly strength. Yukari schemes and misdirects her way to her objectives.

    Yes, that's why I said half-dollar. Otherwise it'd be nothing. This is Dibbler we're talking about. The man who is willing to force the people who are netting him *thousands of dollars clean of tax* to sleep in the shittiest inn at hand and pays them six dollars tops. A man for whom greed is not a vice - it's just a baseline force, like falling down when in the air.

    Personally, I see the Luggage as meeting a lot of the Touhou cast, but not really killing any - as it is still forced to obey Rincewind's direct commands, and most of the Touhou cast is pretty peaceful unless riled up, which Rinsey is certainly smart enough to avoid. Those encounters that end badly, end with Rincewind running away at surprising speed (duh), the Luggage getting lost or blasted into another dimension, and yet STILL finding a way to be back to Rincewind's side. Because that's how Luggage rolls. The Luggage cannot be stopped. The Luggage cannot be contained. The Luggage always has a fresh change of clothes in it.

    Eh, in my experience most fa/tg/uys are entirely apathic towards Touhou threads, outside of one or two sagefags that like to spam the threads with random porn. This has allowed us to discuss the Touhou Homebrew, the setting itself, possible character cameos, and even the official RPG Danmaku Flowers in many threads without much trolling - most fa/tg/uys simply hide the thread and move on.

    I fear this influx will sour the mood and such Touhou threads will become impossible, which will be quite a shame - because /tg/ has FAR better Touhou discussions than /jp/ when you actually want to talk setting and characters, instead of memes and lolpowerlevels.

    It's got multiple pocket dimensions inside it. Trying to eat Yukari just isn't going to stick. At the very most she's going to emerge freshly washed and ironed.

    that and Rincewind just can't catch a break. He'll try as hard as he can to be harmless and out of the way and end up tripping over something important, saying something out of turn or just looking like a really nice target.

    It'll end in the usual mess of Rincewind running away faster then you would think it possible for a man his age to run and anything remotely harassing his luggage or simply getting in it's way would be horribly mangled. Business as usual.

    Fortunately, youkai don't die easy, even the weak ones will have regenerative abilities, so as long as the Luggage doesn't straight up decide to eat them, chances are they'll live but not be very happy they did.

    I meant the named cast. The basic shitty youkais and fairies, yeah, it'll eat a few. It may even get Rumia, if she meets Rincewind and finds him to look edible - she's not the sharpest tool in the shed. But most Touhous are a bit beyond the Luggage's capability, mostly because of flight - a jump up, and Luggage is left on the ground cursing in whatever language living pieces of furniture have. Not to mention Luggage has a certain Narrative-Causality-based tendency to almost never eat named characters - and when it does, it's always the villains. That's mostly what I meant - it's not that he couldn't by logic. It's that by how Discworld does, he, for some reason or another, won't, or they'll emerge alright but smelling of lavender and freshly ironed, and with some messed up memories.

    Well, to Rincewind, she might - things that want to eat you are always bad news, even if they're stupid. Unless he has a half-brick in a sock. For some reason, Rumia doesn't strike me as terribly competent in melee. Or anywhere else, really.

    youkai are supposed to be physically superior to humans, though Rumia is a bit short and probably young so who knows how that evens out, personally I imagine if she gets hold of a guy she can keep hold of him. The problem would be that Rumia isn't very bright and probably isn't actually very good at hitting people in the first place so staying out of her grasp probably isn't a issue.

    This doesn't matter though because if she's close enough to be grabbing at you it'll be dark as all hell something she herself isn't immune to as she keeps flying into trees.

    Isn't it sad Rumia? ;_;
