Fan Fic: Touhou Doujin: Dawitsu's Folly
Touhou Doujin: Dawitsu's Folly
is the first of a misleadingly named
series of Touhou
fanfics written by Duwee Davis II
of Fanfiction.net, and does not involve Doujin of any sort, although the description of the first book implies it started off that way
. The series goes as follows:
- Touhou Doujin: Dawitsu's Folly
- Touhou Doujin: Grimoire of Dawitsu (encyclopedic spin-off)
- Touhou Doujin: Holiday Edition
- Touhou Doujin: Dawitsu's Recompense
- Touhou Doujin: Jean's Magical Education
- Touhou Doujin: The Forbidden Love of Yukari Yakumo (stylistic in-universe spinoff parody of Badfic, poorly received.)
- Touhou Doujin: The Misadventures of Yukari Yakumo (another stylistic homage spinoff, this time as a Lemony Narrator.)
- Touhou Doujin: Yutaka's Big Fat Youkai Wedding
- Touhou Doujin: The Epilogue (The Distant Finale of the series)
On top of that, the author has begun to release walfas videos set in-between Books 6/7 and 8 on this Youtube channel
recently, the author has begun work on what he claims to be a 'sister series', which comprises of:
- Twenty Years Later: Reimu's Successor- A much-more aptly named installment which is set during the Epilogue's time era, Twenty Years Later.
- Twenty Years Later: Bunbunmaru Spirit News archives- A book which, in a similar vein to Grimoire of Dawitsu, has no real plot, but rather is a collection of one-shots, this time in the form of news articles written by Aya and Hatate.
The plot more or less centers around another incident
, this time caused by a (Brace Yourselves
) a Male Self Insert Subverted Gary Stu Original Character
named Mateyuu Dawitsu and his incredibly Moe
Shikigami, Yutaka Hadekawa, who have the powers of Mimicry
and Manipulation of Scenery
. He decides to steal Flandre Scarlet's
sword Laevateinn for the lulz
. Naturally, this doesn't impress her Big Sister
, who blames the incident on the local witch, Marisa Kirisame, and tries to force her to give it back by leveling her house.
Going to the local hero for help, she and Reimu Hakurei end up trying to find the location of this new thief on the block. Hilarity Ensues
Because of the sheer size of this page, tropes that apply to individual stories now have their own pages:
Tropes that apply to the series as a whole
- Actual Pacifist: Yutaka (most of the time)
- Adorkable: Dawitsu.
- Ambiguously Tengu: Dawitsu's species is indeterminate, all that's known is that he was a Youkai from birth, and has many traits similar to a Tengu (capable of high-speed flight, believes knowledge is power, wears a Tokin), but he himself claims not to be one. Word of God in the comments section of this video claims Dawitsu may be a Parrot Tengu.
- A Spot Of Tea: Possibly Author Appeal due to the british nature of the author... it's frequently drunk by various characters.
- "Blind Idiot" Translation: The parts in French in Dawitsu's Recompense and Jean's Magical Education sometimes look like they've been translated with Google Translate.
- Breaking the Fourth Wall: A ton of it, the main culprits being Dawitsu and Marisa.
- British Stuffiness: Averted big time with Dawitsu, and later with Tomasu.
- Buxom Is Better: Dawitsu fully averts this. His tastes in women include Sakuya (who in this continuity, is the pad-wearing, flat-chested version.), Alice Margatroid, who's bust size is never explicitly mentioned, and Yutaka, who by all means is written as looking pretty young for her age, and is mentioned to not be much in the chest department off-hand.
- Camp Straight: Dawitsu is a subtle version of this.
- Chivalrous Pervert: Dawitsu.
- Calling Your Attacks: As per Touhou.
- The Chew Toy: Dawitsu, of the humorous variety. Tokage later on.
- Department of Redundancy Department: Sporadically used, sometimes intentional, sometimes obviously unintentional.
- Don't Call Me Sir: A running theme with Dawitsu and Ran, who doesn't want her to call him 'Master'
- Double Standard: Massively Averted. The writer seems about as Gender Conscious as an amoeba. In a good way.
- Dramatic Ellipsis: Used... an awful... lot... lampshaded by the Author in the Author's notes several times.
- Everyone Is Gay: Surprisingly considering this is set in Gensokyo, there is a mix of both straight girls and lesbians, however it should be noted that the author seems to treat homosexuality as the default sexuality of Gensokyo.
- Eyes Always Closed: Yutaka
- Flanderization: Everyone is a victim of it in the Gag Series of Walfas Videos/Comics. Dawitsu is now a Chronic Ditz who is more than open about his perversion, Yutaka is out and out an Insufferable Genius and a Misandric, Lustful, slightly off Lesbian, Tokage is out and out hallucinating instead of being merely delusional, and Hebiko's practically non-existent Butt Monkey status is dragged Up to Eleven, as well as several canon characters. The only major OC that seems to catch a break regarding this is Jean, and that's mainly because he doesn't appear that often in the author's Walfas-based media.
- Gag Series: The YouTube Walfas Animations are referred to by the creator as the Haruhi-chan to the main series' Haruhi Suzumiya.
- Genre Savvy: Who do you think?
- Hide Your Lesbians: Fully, fully Averted.
- Intergenerational Friendship: Dawitsu is three-hundred and eighteen, and Yutaka is one hundred and fifty-nine. Literally half his age. Lampshaded in Jean's Magical Education.
- Julius Beethoven Da Vinci: Dawitsu and his family successfully stayed in the Outside World without raising suspicion by regularly being "relocated", along with changing their name.
- Just Friends: Or so Dawitsu and Yutaka say...
- Kawaiiko: Flandre Scarlet and Chen. Subverted with Yutaka, who, while having a young-looking body, is most certainly mature, more so than her boss.
- Lampshade Hanging: There's an absolute ton of it.
- Non Indicative Name: There is not a trace of visual medium in the stories themselves, although there is plenty of artwork and animations courtesy of the author.
- Occidental Otaku: Dawitsu, and how!
- Oh My Gods!: Averted. Despite being of an area in which there are Gods, Shinigami, and Youkai, many characters will simply say "Oh God" instead of applicable reverences to their applicable deity.
- Paparazzi: Aya and Hatate both fill this role over the series.
- Perpetual Smiler: Yutaka
- Platonic Life Partners: Yutaka and Dawitsu, although Dawitsu wants more...
- Post Modernism: This series goes from a typical mediocre story to a series where most tropes are, if not subverted, inverted, or lampshaded, are outright exploited or invoked, with the now removed 'Question Time' even having Hong Meiling talking about being an actress and how she wanted a larger role in the series and was screwed over by Duwee Davis himself.
- Random Events Plot: While each story has an overarching plot of some sort, usually pertaining to the title of the current installment, the several sub-plots (and at times, more eventful plots) of the books seem to occur spontaneously, and usually are Chekhov's Guns or Meaningful Background Events from former installments coming to full fruition.
- Really 700 Years Old: Yutaka Hadekawa, who has the body of a fifteen-to-seventeen year old, and Dawitsu, who has the body of a man in his early twenties, are around one hundred and fifty and three hundred respectively.
- Recursive Fanfiction: Metroid Life of Fanfiction.net has begun writing a Fix Fic of the Troll Fic, the Forbidden Love of Yukari Yakumo, here: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8204428/1/ Given that the cover art is the same style as the original, it's safe to say that Duwee Davis is somewhat involved in this, however, making it a subversion. Another subversion is this Walfas tennis project.
- Reference Overdosed
- Running Gag: Is Dawitsu a tengu? Everyone seems to mistake him for one, but he insists he's a mimicker. There's also Aya's ink addiction, which gets more and more ridiculous with every repetition, not to mention Aya's tendency to break down walls.
- Said Bookism: More and more evident in the later books, while the earlier books averted this in favor of (at times) no dialogue verbs at all.
- Shorter Means Smarter: Yutaka, certainly so.
- Shout-Out: Oh so many.
- Situational Sexuality: Most women in Gensokyo appear to be lesbians in this series, and the reasoning is out and out mentioned various times throughout the series; that there just isn't a lot of guys for a straight girl to be with.
- Snark Ball: Everyone seems to hold this at some point, regardless of intelligence. The writer seems to derive a lot of humour from sarcasm, and apparently does this by making every character a Deadpan Snarker at one point or another.
- Speech-Centric Work: Very much so early on, outright inverted in the narration-heavy 'Misadventures of Yukari Yakumo', and 'Reimu's Successor' seems to Zig-Zag it.
- Sweat Drop
- The Not-Love Interest: Dawitsu and Yutaka, big time. There's even a little flirtation despite Yutaka's Incompatible Orientation.
- Trope Overdosed
- Tsundere: Unsurprisingly, Reimu is depicted as a Type A.
- WAFF: The series begins to degenerate into this in the later books, before stopping the trend with a Bittersweet Ending.
- World of Snark: As mentioned above, many characters hold the Snark Ball at some point. A lot just keep it with them full-time.
