Author Appeal: Amoridere is fond of many things, like themes of insanity, psychology, dark if not otherwise serious themes, pessimism (she does see the world through Jade-Colored Glasses and is somewhat of a Broken Bird), disabilities, fantasy, and various other things, as naming many of her interests would take up the entire page but many of her interests do find themselves in her writing.
Author Phobia: Amoridere has a fear of nuclear wars, as well, as wars in general and the effects thereof.
Bowdlerise: Amoridere changed up some of her stories in this series when she posted them on Archive of Our Own and she intends to post said bolderdised versions FF.net whenever she gets the chance.
Creator Breakdown: Arguably, this can be case with Amoridere, as she isn't known to be positive, having become jaded and fatalistic overtime through certain life events, the which of she expresses in her writing.
Doing It for the Art: Amoridere enjoys writing the series and does it out of enjoyment, just like she would with her other fan-fictions and original stories
Doorstopper: The entire series is about 343, 453 words long
Missing Episode / Banned Episode: Not so much banned per se, but Amoridere couldn't write the part about the warden raping Yukari in Gensokyo 20XXII because of site regulations, technically making it banned from that site, ergo missing, however, you can read it on Mibba, along with the sidestory The Warden's Lover where it describes what she went through from her POV and is rated NC-17, the link of which will not be posted.
One of Us: The person that wrote this is a troper herself Note She mostly observes and reads, being so shy and preferring to keep a low profile. and is a fan of Imperfect Metamorphosis, among other things, as can be seen by the Shout Outs.
Reality Subtext: In Gensokyo 20XXV, where Reimu gets a hold of rat poison was based off of a recent time when she had found her young nephew, who likes to get into things, with Windex, though that ended differently that what had happened in the story. Note If you're curious and if asked, she will reassure you that her nephew is fine and that she's taken it from him as soon as she has seen him with it.
Yume Ni beating up or otherwise fighting with the other kids is based on the fact that she does not have a good relationship with her siblings. In chapter 82, where she was stabbed with a pair of scissors highlighted the fact further in what partially motivated her to write was a spat she had with her sister.
There is also that part where Tenshi says, "You hit me, I'll hit your ass back!" which based on a couple of instances with her relatives, namely her sisters, more specifically the younger one.
Some of Reimu's "The Reason You Suck" Speech to Baka was based off of something she wanted tell to her older brother, the relationship with whom is strained.
Reclusive Artist: Amoridere spends most of her time living as a Hikikomori and tends to keep social contact to minimum but is fairly open to answering questions, as well as taking requests, though for the latter, she'd prefer that to be at a minimum as she is often busy. On the note of what is known about her besides her interests, can be seen on her profiles and the only thing that isn't known is her real name and the very closest we get to what she looks like is this
Ripped from the Headlines: Gensokyo 20XXIII was written while the authoress was thinking about that whole thing between North Korea and America and the conflict in relation to nuclear warheads. This is referenced in the first chapter.
Schedule Slip: Occasionally from time to time, due to site issues, as well as some personal and time issues but she is always quick to update as soon as the time arises. Apparently, some chapters take some time to write.
Word of God: If asked, Amoridere will happily answer any questions to help anyone enjoy the series.
Write What You Know / Shown Their Work: Apparently, being that she is mostly on a computer, Amoridere puts a lot of research into her stories as can be seen the cases of the Canon and Fanon of the Touhou Project, mental illnesses, as well as symptoms of thereof. Of course, said knowledge causing her take up a psychology class at some point, expanding upon it, Reimu's upbringing in an fairly unstable environment with what can be considered the hallmarks to a Dysfunctional Family and or a Big Screwed-Up Family, as she's noted herself, mythology, and many more things.
Write Who You Know: Amoridere stated that some of Reimu's mannerisms were based off of her then toddler niece, more specifically her saying, "Nuh."
Actually, she's based much of the toddlers' mannerisms off of said niece.
She also stated that Yuyuko is affectionately based off of her mother.Note The nice things about her mother, that is.
Apparently, Chen's tantrums in The Tantrum Phase were based off a niece of hers, except minus the hitting.
The fact that Chen learned about sex from a book was inspired by herself, when she was younger, and her nieces and nephews, who are apparently more worldly than any child she may have encountered before.
She states that whenever she writes a bully or antagonistic child, she usually bases it off of one if not both her younger sisters, in which case her sisters may have served as an inspiration for Yume Ni.
Reimu's later personality changes is an expression of her own pessimism and fatalism.
Amoridere: [...]the ending is narrated from Reimu's POV , it will have implied that she and Ran are absent (think the ending from The Triplets of Belleville. which can be found on youtube). Also, she hears their voices and responds to them.
Also, said original ending was supposed to happen much much later in the future, when Reimu would have been full grown.
Gensokyo 20XXIV would have been the final in the series but something motivated her to write on.
A nickname for Shinmyoumaru was suppose to be "Shinny" or "Shinmy" but when she said either of the two, it sounded very close to "Shitty" and "Shitin' me", so she changed it Shimmy.
In Gensokyo 20XXIV, Ren would have passed away but she asked someone's opinion on it and decided he should live, seeing that Ran has already lost some of babies.
Initially, Satori's fate was supposed to remain unknown after her chapter in Gensokyo 20XXIV but then she decided to have her brought back later.
In Gensokyo 20XXIII, Seija and Yuyuko not getting along would have been used a comedic device but it is unknown as to why it wasn't, though it could have something to do with the fact that she forgot and or found it would take up too much of the story.
In Gensokyo 20XXI, she would have made it where Ran passes away in childbirth but decided against it.
Originally, in Gensokyo 20XXII, the origin of Kaguya wearing one shoe larger than the other was supposed to be explained as that being the first thing she's brought, as well as the fact that someone told her it was fashionable, which is supposed to be play naivete in that she believed it, thinking it to be part of Outside World customs.
Originally, Maribel would have debuted in Life in Gensokyo Village as a baby that Yuyuko would have found and had given to Yukari to adopt her.
Similarly, on the note of Maribel and Yukari, it was supposed to brought up that two look almost as if they could be related and the origins thereof but she decided she couldn't really find a place for that and figured it was better that way.
Originally, Reimu's lullaby in 20XXV, chapter 113, was supposed to be Gaelic (much like Cheza's) but she couldn't find a translator
