Happy Steven Moffat Appreciation Day! 

Moffat’s stories exist in bubbles. Not in the sense that they are fragile and transparent structures, but in the sense that they seem to develop in parenthesis.

i’m just gonna sit here and stare at Yana’s moodboard of future/modern Jessa for the rest of my life

Eri - Present and Future

((So… I decided to make a write-up for Eri’s future selves, just for the sake of characterization and world-building. 

The summaries are in the points, and if you want more details, feel free to read the paragraphs! 8D))


“No matter what happens… I’m… I’m glad to have met everyone…!”

Eri Philomele - Two Tailed Kitsune (This one!)

  • Naive and clueless, but helpful
  • Not very strong
  • Teases people who are close to him
  • Relies on his powers way too much, typical child behavior
  • Excels in shapeshifting, and nothing else

I won’t really talk about this version, since this is pretty much the blog itself!

“Welcome to my cafe, stranger. A penny for your thoughts, perhaps?“

Eri Philomele - Fourth/Fifth Tailed Kitsune

  • Owns a magical-themed cafe in the outside world
  • Shapeshfiting master, knows basic curses and creative with pyromancy
  • A bit of a sweet talker, teases much more than his two-tailed self.
  • Still abuses his shapeshifting powers quite a bit for pranks and teasing, but not using his powers as much as his younger self
  • Like his adoptive mother, Satori, really good in analyzing personalities
  • An adviser, blessing people with either good or bad fortune

A teenage version of Eri, Eri in his teens lived away from Satori for a moment to mingle more with the outside world, becoming an owner in a humble magical-themed cafe, moving locations and wiping memories of most of his patrons from ever meeting him every fifty years.

Wearing a magician outfit over his old Youmu-themed one, Eri is known to be an adviser his later years. He’s able to maintain his presence in the outside world due to the kitsune legend being extremely prevalent, and blesses fortunate travelers with good luck should he see witness them perform good things, and bad luck to drunkards and violent people.

While his cafe serves impeccable food, most people visit him mostly to seek out advice. These people are legends in the making such as kings, queens, and legendary warriors. Once every month, he visits Satori and his friends, either having a talk or teasing them occasionally.

“Until Gensokyo’s ready to be more open-minded, I’m stuck like this, am I?”

Eri Philomele - Nine Tailed Kitsune

Yes, he’s actually disguised as a woman here.

  • Representative of Chireiden, speaks upon Satori’s behalf as well
  • Extremely good in calming conflicts and getting what he wants
  • His revealing outfit is intentional, it serves as a distracting point and can sway the conversation to his favor quicker while being fashionable at the same time
  • Rarely uses his powers, except in self-defense situations
  • Disguised as a woman in public due to Gensokyo’s nature, only shows his true form to those close to him such as Remilia or Chen

Imagine our society, where women are ridiculed for taking male-dominated positions, such as mechanics, the police, or even the the army. Reverse that and amplify that feeling, and you get Gensokyo.

With women being the most prevalent in high positions even after hundreds of years such as the Hakurei Shrine Maiden, Youkai Sage, the pillars of religion in Gensokyo and others being women, Eri too was forced to disguise himself as one as well, after being selected by Satori to become Chireiden’s representative.

Returning back from the outside world after they advanced far too much, Eri returned as a fully-fledged kitsune with impeccable knowledge. Considering how powerful women are viewed in Gensokyo, Eri presented himself as one as well to the public, unless it’s towards people he’s close with.

He works most of the time being an adviser for Satori, perhaps even raising a disciple of his own. He does revert to his two-tailed self in private, as it’s the biggest turning point in his life for him.

I bet my coworkers are looking at the “toys sold” count sheet for the charity thing (it’s a competition between everyone apparently) and going “wtf” cuz in the past two days alone I’ve managed to get 102 donations

consider: most of the toys were about $1 or $.50 (though a few people went above and beyond and donated things in the $2-$5 range) and they’re basically stocking stuffer toys, but that’s basically $100+ worth of toys

 Me: It’s 2017, no one wants to hear Gravity Falls meta

Also me: Stan never believed Gideon was an actual psychic—even though he knew supernatural things were possible, and even though everyone in Gravity Falls was against him, Stan always insisted he absolutely knew Gideon was a fraud.  Why was he so certain?

Gideon always called him “Stanford.” 

Anyone with real mind-reading powers would’ve known that was actually his brother’s name, and he was living under a false identity
