Aaaaand I’m also not going to make a male Touhou character and I’m probably not going to name it after myself but I can 100% make a youkaisona/new oc that’s based off me, you bet! Thanks @turbobyakuren​ for the opportunity to make a cute space youkai girl <3

Celestine Lunette
is a youkai magician who draws strength from the alignment of the planets! She’s always watching the sky, and knows what bodies and stars are going to be where years in advance. Her magic changes depending on what’s in the sky, and she can also predict the future via planetary movements. It’s touhou, astrology can be real if I want it to be real

She possesses a magical telescope that can see with about as much detail as modern astronomical telescopes, a compass that shows the alignment of objects in the sky (so she can still check on cloudy days), and a book where she records all of her observations and also has spells.

She’s extremely interested in space (obviously, she’s me), and could probably talk your ears off about it if you let her get carried away. As a magician, she also has a general interest in anything mystical, and is constantly thirsty to learn new things.

She also has a sense of humor. She’s a little like Marisa, honestly, except she respects you and your property. Just harmless sass. If she knew about the internet she’d be a shitposter for sure.

(Also she totally gets on well with Galactica. They’d be best friends for life. I bet she’d adopt the damn fairy.)

The Headless Hunt had ghost horses and I don’t know why I never really noticed that before. Ghost animals are a thing. Real cats trying to capture ghost cats. Ghost owls flying round the Hogwarts Owlery. Ghost mermaids occasionally going through the glass into the Slytherin common room and getting confused by no longer being in water. Ghost centaurs helping to perfect the centaur art of divination because they’ve seen more, both in planetary movements and in events on Earth.

Language is a weird thing. We as humans rely on a pink squishy muscle to control the air that leaves our throats so we can communicate in sounds we happened to like and solidify those sounds as “words”.

Momronica au where Pyronica and her gang stumble upon the demon Pines siblings but instead of eating them Py wants to keep them and be the momiest mom

I’ve only got that 1. Bill is like their uncle who starts weird stories but never finishes them 2. Dipper has the power to move stars and change planetary movements while Mabel can create planets and 3. Stanford made them in his lab and then lost them way to go Ford

im going to sleep but before i do: astrology is real and y'all should study up on it. observe people online and off, what events in the world coincide with what planetary movements, even something as small as a text post on this site that gets popular during a particular transit
