“The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.”

Well, son, I’ve got a lot of problems. I’d like to start getting better now.

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 ???” 

Post. 

 – 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.

回 ░ : ❝ Can I go back to Gensokyo now ? I literally did not ask for ANY of this. ❞

As much as I like the idea of Yuuri winning gold and Victor getting silver and just being extremely proud of his husband, imagine Victor having a hard time dealing with his loss. Imagine him forcing himself to smile and encourage Yuuri on the podium because on one hand he’s so proud but on the other it hurts to get silver after being the undefeated champion for so long. Imagine him nodding and grinning at Yuuri because he knows that’s what he wants to see, but falling apart on the inside because it hurts to not be the best anymore, it hurts to be worse than someone else, even if he loves that someone more than anything else. Imagine Victor being happy for Yuuri but silently despairing over the fact that his own time is over and he is no longer relevant and if he doesn’t retire now then he will just fall behind more and more skaters because he’s just not the flawless, breath-taking young skater he used to be. He’s no longer the living legend he was for so long.

And imagine Yuuri seeing through his fake smile and realizing that he cares for Victor’s happiness more than about a gold medal, even if it’s the appreciation of his skills that he always wanted. Imagine him frowning and stepping off the podium and just throwing his arms around Victor and apologizing.

And imagine Victor shaking his head and biting back tears because this is Yuuri’s big moment, the thing they worked for for years, the victory that Yuuri completely and utterly deserved and he can’t steal his spotlight, not over something so petty, not now.

And imagine Yuuri just finding his hand and running his fingers over the gold band on Victor’s ring finger and squeezing his hand lightly and saying “You’ll always be the reigning champion to me.”

And imagine Victor just bursting into tears because it actually makes him feel better and remind him how much he loves him, how much he adores how Yuuri can be the bigger person during Victor’s moments of weakness even when he really doesn’t deserve it, and imagine him ushering Yuuri back to the highest spot of the podium and just extending his arms like he’s presenting the most precious thing in the word because that’s exactly what Yuuri is to him.

Imagine both of them accepting Yuuri’s victory and turning it into something that helps their relationship grow, and something that they’re both proud of.
