The New Touhou Character Alternate Interpretation Compendium!:

Ghosts' Poet
The medicine was originally intended for the emperor, from Kaguya. Mokou was going to take it as pseudo-revenge against Kaguya, since Kaguya had already left to the moon.
you'll then have a grave in the clouds where you won't lie too cramped

But yeah, there's a difference. I might not have expressed it well, but the way I see it, her rejuvenation was just a regeneration that made her body cleansed of impurities and built stronger than it was before, but without any major changes. Like a supernatural fitness and beauty program. De-aging into a prepubescent state, on the other hand, would require a massive change in the character's anatomy, in a direction that bodies just don't develop into, so it seems a lot less natural.

It also makes the whole factor of being unable to grow further seem even more gratuitous than it already is. I'd much prefer to think that there's a reason why they have to be children.

It's not supposed to seem natural. Vampires are supernatural creatures. Love usually doesn't develop into giant death rays, so are you going to argue that Master Spark doesn't seem natural? Master Spark is magic. Vampires are magic. Neither of them are limited by the usual rules of biology and physics.

Furthermore, there is a reason why they have to be children, and it's explicitly spelled out in Remilia's profile in Imperishable Night: that's the source of her immortality. "Creatures of her kind forfeit their growth and maturity in exchange for eternal life. In other words, she can live forever because she never grows up."

Well, it's not for me to decide. Though I find it very sad that a lot of very creative minds around here don't seem to be contributing any write-ups because their standards are so high. You wouldn't be the only one.

I only create true art, like photoshops of Australian Nazrin.

I thought that was a wholly original character!

Australian Nazrin?

Yes. No. Sorry; slip of the tongue. I mean Bella Rat, who has nothing to do with Nazrin at all.

Excuse me, My head has an appointment with the wall over there...

Hunting crocodiles, since I'm Nazrin!
That awkward moment where Kyoro is one of Satan's Generals.

I went through Mokou's profile when I was writing this. She apparently didn't know exactly what the Elixir was until she took it from some random people who were going to throw it into a volcano.

CILR goes into the whole story in much much more detail, which may or may not be a retcon depending on how you look at it. It was much much more interesting than that.

The Master Spark isn't powered by love. Marisa is just full of shit. Its powered by a potent magical reactor. Which is a mini version of a legendary one used to imprison a monkey guy after he ate a peach of immortality and declared himself god. Nothing love related about that. Plus, the Master Spark was supposedly made by Yuuka originally and she definitely didn't base it on love.

Marisa is just full of shit and Huge-ass Laser Sign: Master Spark doesn't sound quite as pithy.

Marisa's trickery is deep and manifold. The appearance that her magic is not actually love-coloured is nothing but a ruse to hide her love for the countless romantic comedies from which she draws her power. She's even possessed of such love for the environment that she retrofitted Yuuka's fossil fuel-based Master Spark with a much more eco-friendly power source.

Romantic comedies don't even contain any love. They are shallow, horrible productions which contain as much love as a robot in a factory, endlessly creating the same thing over and over again. They reduce the total amount of love in the universe by existing in fact. Also.

Here's a shocker: For all of Marisa's working hard or whatever, her biggest spell, her signature move, her big finisher: it didn't come from training really hard to be able to handle it. It came from a family friend handing her a potent magical artifact so she could fuel a spell she plagiarized from someone else.

So, yeah. Marisa: full of shit.

Remilia: full of blood, which is amazing.

You should probably change your avatar before saying that

I don't believe it's ever been explicitly stated that she stole the spell

Wow, big shocker. Bocaj ignoring strict canon.

Also, hippie Karkat isn't a romcom fan. I assume. He sees them as tools of the man, man. I assume.

[up][up] Thrice as amazing as Narnia in fact.

You misunderstand. If love of romantic comedies was a major source of your power, wouldn't you try to hide it?

Well, I would flaunt it as proof of what an evil person I am. But I've been told I'm atypical.

And Marisa is atypical. So I would say your conjecture was false.

That's the thing about being atypical. There's no reason to assume that Bocaj is atypical in the same way Marisa is... and I'll bet you're relieved.

On the one hand, I don't get to fire giant lasers. On the other hand, I don't have to fire giant lasers made of lies and larceny. Its kind of a mixed bag.

But how about them Remilias. I bet she doesn't fire giant lie lasers. She's classier than that. The hypothetical giant lasers are made of blood, which is amazing.

But Remilia knows that blood is a sometimes food. She has to keep her eternally unchanging figure, after all. Blood goes straight to the... Blood... Blood is a low-fat food actually. Very slimming. Again, very amazing.

Remilia's actual giant lasers (Spear the Gungnir probably counts) are not made of blood though.

GoM describes Heaven's Punishment "Star of David" as a magic circle. Not sure if it's made with blood

That's because its made of spear. Its hard to have a spear that's also blood. I have tried. Over and over again.

Until I wept of the horrible, senseless waste, I have tried.

But you don't object to laser made of spear? Interesting. It's pretty obviously an energy attack though, and is described as dense danmaku.

Lasers made of spears are perfectly reasonable. Lasers are light. There are light spears. It follows that you can have light spears that are lasers. Didn't you take Elementary Physics and Medieval Warfare 101?

This has gotten silly. Faw, when you log on again: I have put a bolded line on that thing I wrote. Take it in memory of me.
