A cliff note version of Reimu’s “canon” DPOE timeline. I’ll expand on things, write drabbles, move things around, ect. eventually, but with all the info out here we go kids, the: “How the Hell Did Reimu End Up In This Mess In the First Place ???”
– Gensokyo is a land of Fantasy. A “Paradise for Both Humans and Youkai", a realm which does not really exist, at least not in a logical way humans can truly comprehend. It is not unlike Wonderland, a separate realm connected to this world ( the Outside World, the real world, the world of humans, OUR world ) and can only be entered by very specific means. – Reimu Hakurei is the Shrine Maiden of this land, and she will do anything to protect it. For it is her job to maintain its delicate balance. The Outside World and their going ons is NOT her problem, she is GENSOKYO’S shrine maiden first and foremost. – But still, Gensokyo is reliant on the continued existence of the world outside it’s Illusionary Boundary; Fantasy can’t exist without Reality; if the world outside where to be destroyed, Gensokyo would fall with it. – Yukari Yakumo ( @deadlyfantasia) is a powerful Youkai Sage which watches over Gensokyo and protects its boundaries. She is too a frequent traveler of the Outside World, and keeps her eye on the events which take place there. She found out rather quickly about the chaos of the human’s world ending, a apocalypse started by a certain strange bear @desbearer (# thanks based monokuma) and as soon as the youkai figured out this wasn’t simply a normal human war ( she had seen plenty of those before after all ) as soon as she realized the Outside World was at the threat of being completely destroyed: she took action. For she would NOT let Gensokyo fall because the humans outside of it decided to all up and die. – So, she came up with a plan. A mission for Gensokyo’s shrine maiden, the one person Yukari KNEW she could count on in a situation like this: Go outside of Gensokyo, fight with the humans who live there, HELP THEM, help the Outside World STABILIZE, help humanity not get WIPED OUT. If she could do that, Gensokyo would be SAVED. In the meantime, Yukari would stay within Gensokyo and help defend / protect it ( strengthen the boundaries, work her powerful magic to try to keep Gensokyo as functional as possible while the whole endeavor sorted itself out ) Confident the Red-White would surely be of help to the humans dealing with the chaos outside. – Reimu joins up with Concordia ( both out of Yukari’s insistence and her own morals ) and helps them fight back, helps them in anyway she can. Despite herself, she makes friends. ( Adrien @mcncheri and Kirigiri @kyoukokiwigiri in particular ) and despite herself she grows to care for them. ( “Maybe once this is over I can show them Gensokyo… I just need to help them, save their home just like how I’m working to save my own” ) – She eventually gets a tattoo of the cause, ( on her mid back, between her shoulder blades ) and soon enough Reimu becomes as wholeheartedly invested in Concordia’s success as she is in her personal mission to help secure Gensokyo’s safety. – Cue Monokuma fucking everything up and throwing them into Murder Disney – Cue 6 chapters worth of bs she had to go through – And once she’s out, she finds out that the Outside World ( for better or for worse ) is stable enough that Gensokyo is no longer in any danger of ceasing to exist.She can go home, she can put all this behind her ( she can try to ignore the voice in the back of her head telling her she is just running away. What would her friends think if she just ran back home and left their world in ruins ruled by a tyrant and a deranged self proclaimed queen ? ) – But… her job isn’t to PROTECT the Outside World is it ? She is GENOKSYO’S shrine maiden, everything she has done and will continue to do is for the sake of her HOME, for the place she misses with all her heart. For Reimu Hakurei above all other things has and will always be, The Shrine Maiden of Paradise.

YOU GUYS GIVE ME LIFE -screeching-
Thank you all who came to the stream! ´w` <3 you all are babs <3 also, TimxJack is becoming my new obsession and i need a HOBBY -looks away from the pairing- -grump grump grump-
ok i need to get this out because i’ve been stewing on it for the best part of an hour and, as a writer, the only way i’m going to get over it is if i write it down
this episode hit me so hard for a number of reasons, but none more than this: robert sugden has been repressing his sexuality for the best part of fifteen years, had done everything he could to reject the side of him which liked men as well as women.
he was beaten by his father at the age of fifteen, only a year after his mother had died, and all because he wanted to kiss a boy. since then, robert has considered himself a disappointment not just to his dad, but in general, and all because he is bisexual.
is it any wonder that robert refused to say he was anything other than straight? is it such a surprise now that whenever jack is mentioned (even up until today when vic said their dad would be proud of him for proposing to a man) he immediately shuts down?
robert has pushed down his feelings for half his life, buried them as he accurately said. and aaron, broken and insecure but so utterly strong as well, was the only person who got through those defences, the only one robert got to be himself around.
that poor, frightened, insecure, ashamed little boy has always been a part of robert, he’s carried round that guilt for years and aaron has finally helped him to overcome it.
“i just wanna be myself now… with you”
that’s all he wants, all he’s ever wanted. for someone to look at him, all of him, and not turn away. all he’s ever wanted is to have someone love him for who he is. and now he has that.
