** There is also the SoBadItsGood subgenre of "[[SelfInsertFic Gappy]] [[MartyStu Stu]] Fics," wherein an AuthorAvatar is gapped into Gensokyo by Yukari, makes friends with several of the residents, becomes super strong after training with Reimu and Marisa, and beats up a bad guy in one of the worst incidents to ever hit Gensokyo. These fics [[KudzuPlot start hundreds of subplots]] due to LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, but never answer them [[TheChrisCarterEffect before the readers just give up]]. This subgenre was [[DeconstructionFic taken apart]] by ''Fanfic/DiamondInTheRough'', showing the shallowness of these self-insert characters while addressing how dangerous Gensokyo can really be.

** The plot of ''Urban Legend in Limbo'' turns out to be one of these, where newcomer Sumireko Usami tries to break through the Hakurei Barrier in order to interact with Gensokyo's residents. However, it's {{Deconstructed}} in that her actions threaten to completely destroy the Barrier, once she actually gets in, she gets fed up with the constant Danmaku fights with everyone [[spoiler: and the Lunar Capital snuck their own power stone in what's most likely an attempt to connect the Lunar Capital with Gensokyo.]]

** [[MadScientist Eirin's shady new drug]]: Eirin's tendency to make unusual concoctions of dubious pharmaceutical benefit and bizarre effect is often used to justify strange happenings. ''Inaba of the Moon and Inaba of the Earth'', [[BrokenBase generally]] considered canon, uses this one.

''Inaba of the Moon and Inaba of the Earth'', [[BrokenBase generally]] considered canon, uses this one. And then becomes an irrefutably AscendedMeme when ''Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom'' uses this as ''a game mechanic''. *[[note]]Eirin creates a medicine that ''allows you to see into the short-term future.'' This game has a "checkpoint" mechanic that re-starts you at set stage intervals every time you die; thus, in-story, every time you "die", you were actually seeing a version of the future in which you fail, and every time you complete a section without dying, it was the ONLY actual attempt, influenced by your "visions".[[/note]]* Bonus points for Eirin sending out [[ButtMonkey Reisen]] to deliver the medicine to Reimu, Marisa and Sanae and convince them to drink it prior to the start of the story. *[[note]]And then sending Reisen off to deal with the invasion in her place.[[/note]]*

* The four great Fandom-Specific Explanations of ''Touhou'' are summed up by a well-known [[MemeticMutation meme]], namely [[http://img397.imageshack.us/img397/6487/1227762377713zd9.png this doujin panel]]. (Which has actually been altered from the original, which just had the first three lines.)

** [[GodsNeedPrayerBadly It's a Moriya Shrine conspiracy]]: After their introduction in ''Mountain of Faith'', every single "main" game in the series (''Subterranean Animism'', ''Unidentified Fantastic Object'', and ''Ten Desires'') was either directly or indirectly caused by the Moriya trio's (more specifically Kanako's) attempts to gather more faith from the population. Suffice to say fanon took it and ran with it.

* The "Outsider Fic" subgenre, where somebody (often an AuthorAvatar, but may also be any kind of original character) somehow ends up within Gensokyo, either by accidentally/purposefully slipping through the Hakurei border (which, according to canon, is common), or by Yukari (in a sub-subgenre increasingly known as "Gappy Fics"). As a result, FishOutOfWater antics ensue as they get aquainted with this FantasyKitchenSink, and the outsider must either learn to live in this new land or find a way back home. Occasionally, they'll arrive just as an incident begins and they're forced to take part in it for one reason or another, teaming up with the canon characters. A fine example of this is [=ChibiChen=]'s ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8475931/1/Mind-the-gap Mind The Gap]]''. ** There is also the SoBadItsGood subgenre of "[[SelfInsertFic Gappy]] [[MartyStu Stu]] Fics," wherein an AuthorAvatar is gapped into Gensokyo by Yukari, makes friends with several of the residents, becomes super strong after training with Reimu and Marisa, and beats up a bad guy in one of the worst incidents to ever hit Gensokyo.
