Flowering Night 05

I regret that I had lost track of the days; had I realized All Hallow's Eve was so close, I would have set up a party. The fact that none was had is practically a disgrace to my mistress, it is quite her favorite holiday. Especially when we let little Flandre out and watch the weaker youkai become fireworks~

But it appears that someone has done my job for me. I trust you all are enjoying the tricks and treats granted to all on such an occasion? ♥

You may not wish to hear this, Sonic, but I would like to speak with you.

I figure you were in a great deal of pain two nights ago, and I would like to help.

...well. This explains why the Luna Dial would not work; apparently I'm no longer myself, but trapped in the body of the new shrine maiden.

......this is usually the sort of thing Reimu takes care of, but even this does not seem to be something you can fix with enough danmaku.


As a warning, folks, cleaning of the hotel will be a little slower than usual for as long as I am trapped in this uncomfortably overendowed body.

...Sorry about the late message, but I was busy taking care of things.

I have to agree with the journal below on one thing - it appears that the hotel employs some sort of magic to bypass the need for staffing, as the second floor cafeteria seems to be adequately stocked and the rooms do tidy themselves... to a degree. It seems that it only does the bare minimum, though, as the coffee that the hotel makes by itself is hideous as are the teas and pastries, and the rooms tidy only insofar that things are removed from the floors and put in their place. If you leave a stain, it appears to remain there.

...As of such, until Lady Remilia figures out a way to contact me with something else she wishes me to do, I am taking it upon myself to set up a proper waiting staff for this hotel. I will not live in such squalid conditions, nor would I expect anyone else to. I will be taking up the responsibilities of cleaning the rooms and preparing food three times a day - at teatime, lunch, and supper. If you wish breakfast, you may prepare it yourself; it is not hard to scramble eggs or toast bread. If anybody here wishes to help, please let me know. I can do this myself, but having assistance that isn't mentally impaired and chronically lazy would be a welcome change from my usual duties.

If you have any questions, I have left this post open to replies of all sorts.

...I must admit, this is more advanced than the 'computers' that madam Yukari showed us. Hopefully I am accessing this right.

I cannot seem to figure out where in Gensokyo this is, nor can I find Lady Remilia's manse; would anyone out there be able to assist me?

All entries prior to this are part of the pre-reboot RP now contained at [info]oldredux.

After reboot, Sakuya's canon is after Phantasmagoria of Flower View (TH09) and before Scarlet Weather Rhapsody (TH10.5). This means, canonically, the events of Embodiment of Scarlet Devil, Perfect Cherry Blossom, and Imperishable Night have happened.

Sakuya will likely retain the ability to stop time in the post-reboot RP, but will only use it to power-clean, as very few threats will need ZA WARUDO and, as of such, full time-stoppage, and will be mod-approved.

...Well. It appears I am alone... or rather, I am not alone in being alone.

Shadow, you may once again be pleased to hear that Lady Remilia appears to no longer be around to pester you. Antoine, I am pleased to tell you that starting tomorrow I will be resuming my work here. You needn't take on this mess alone; especially since a large number of folk here have mysterious pregnancies.

If anyone needs anything, you know where to find me.

I wish I'd had a chance to ask her about what had happened, before she left..

This is something that has been in my mind for a while, but due to the last curse rendering me barely tall enough to bite Antoine's ankles, much less worry about proper cooking, I could not bring it up when it could have been helpful for a few of those here that had been cursed.

So I will bring this up right here and now.

For those who were not here when my mistress was about, or who did not associate much with her, I would like to remind you all that before I started cooking here, I was employed as the chief maid for a vampiress of considerable power and esteem. As of such, I am not only knowledgable, but in fact specifically trained to know how to prepare food that sustains those with... different nutritional requirements than normal.

For those of you that this does not apply to, rest assured, I am capable of cooking for human or Mobian stomachs with no problem, and I can assure you my 'normal' dishes are completely blood-free. If you do not trust my word, we even have Antoine and Madam Rouge in the kitchen often to cook in my stead.

However, if you do at any time have vampiric urges, either naturally or through a curse, please, let me know. I would much rather prepare you meals than have you draw blood from another person here, or worse yet, starve. If you are afraid others will discriminate, do not fear, I will keep any knowledge I am told entirely confidential if you wish it of me.

Thank you for your time, I just wanted to give you all a simple reminder, so that perhaps if we gain more vampiric residents, they do not end up as ill as the youngest Shadow appears to be feeling.

Antoine-san... I have been thinking, since we have been stuck a bit more involuntarily to each other this past week than usual...

Would you perhaps wish to room together on a more permanent basis? I would grant you the privacy you desire, of course, but I notice that both you and I seem to focus less on those we have lost to this accursed hotel when we are near each other. I feel it may in fact be good for both of us.

For those who are interested, I have prepared a fair assortment of meat dishes down in the dining room.

Antoine, I trust that your hunting trip helped? I humbly request that you please have my knives cleaned as soon as possible, I do not wish them to stain. ♪

[Early morning at the Hotel, about time for Sakuya to get up and start working on breakfast for those who decide to come down... of course, she has a bit of problems getting out of bed, this time, for resting on her stomach is a plain brown egg with... a flaxen toupee atop it? The hell? She finally manages to sit up without it falling over, considering it]

...well, at least I don't have to think of what to cook for the ma-eh?

[A quiet cracking noise, and then the egg all but bursts open, pieces flying here, there, and everywhere, leaving Sakuya staring at what could only be a chao-ified Antoine D'Coolette, complete with chao-sized royal guardsman outfit. You could cut the silence with a knife, Sakuya trying her best to keep from squeeing like a little girl. And then, after a pause, she just picks up the newly-hatched chao and hugs it, dopey grin on her face]

[[Daw. Guess who has a soft spot for cute?]]

Ah, yes. Tourist season. When we get a large number of customers, high stress, and a large amount of crash-course training is done.

For those who have just started working here, my name is Sakuya. I am the head maid here, and it is my job to make sure all of you do your jobs. Should there ever be a situation that requires the touch of supervision, I am the one you speak to. Aside from that, I will do whatever needs to be done at a given time, which means you may find me working alongside you. Do not panic if such is the case, I am only here to help.

For any patrons who may have unassumedly stumbled onto our intranet, likewise welcome, though these channels are typically for staff use. You may come to me if you have any questions, concerns, or complaints, and we fully aim to serve your needs while you are staying.

To all who read this, please be aware that the cafe downstairs, while run by the same company as this hotel, has its own seperate staffing, and all complaints with their staff should be taken up with their managers, and not with me; the same applies in reverse. Any problems with our cleaning and room service crews should be brought up with me and not at the cafe.

Regardless, I hope you enjoy your stay here! ♥

...Goodness, has it been a month already? The hotel better repair the Luna Dial when this is all over with.

Also, whilst I appreciate seeing a familiar face, it is quite obvious that this ghost is not Yuyuko-san, but an illusion of her, and as of such I would rather she would stop following me around staring at me constantly.

It's rather unsettling, as it makes me believe she wishes to eat me.

[[Before the mod eats me, let me note that just because the ghost is familiar does not mean it's an emo ghostie! Just one with a strong resemblance to a Touhou char. :B And to those who go near Sakuya during this time, Copy-Yuyuko may also eye you hungrily, too. Because fanon is insane.]]

So many questions in mind now.

The most obvious one is 'am I cursed, or is Jet'? The others... the ones that only remember the first year or so and then remember being sent home - are obviously under a curse, but those that have stayed at the hotel are divided into two mindsets. There are several of us - at my count, me, Merlina, Super, and the youngest Shadow, so far - that remember being here the full decade that the hotel has remained standing... whereas there are others - the oldest Jet, Miles, potentially Ichigo and Uryuu - that only remember the first year.

Even if this was a curse... I would hate to forget how much I have grown in that time.

...which... leads to my second concern.

I... haven't aged a bit in these ten years. Even if one were to write it off as a curse... the curse has changed the others that remember being in the hotel. And yet... I still have the body of a sixteen year old girl. I have to wonder if there was a reason that Lady Remilia did not keep clocks in the Scarlet Devil Mansion... but I also have to wonder if there's more about me that she knows but refuses to tell me. I... I have been starting to come up with theories, but nothing solid yet...

Mnh. It's stressful to think about these things. I do believe I need some of the relaxation blend...

*silence, for a few moments, before the door opens and a quiet, familiar voice calls out*

Lady Remilia? Lady Remil-... her...

Her things are gone. Which means she was probably sent back...

Heh... guess I have a lot more free time again.

Hn. Less than a week until the next one, and since that time we've learned that at least one other has the curse of lycanthropy, whereas it seems that a sort of lunar madness strikes the rest of the hotel slightly.

Perhaps the legends of the full moon causing insanity were true? Strange, then, how I felt nothing...

There are still a few hours before Lady Remilia comes back from.. 'the hunt', as she put it. It's strange... I can't even find myself worrying about her staying out of trouble any more. Things have gotten so... muddled, here at this hotel.

I've been beginning to wonder if I am even human, with the interest Lady Remilia has put into me.

SAKUYA! WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THIS?! Especially after all that whining about how that Mephiles guy told you not to stop time because of whatever!

*a cool, even tone, almost insidious in its calmness* Circumstances warranted it. Mephiles-san will understand. And I believe the others in the hotel agree that the young Mistress needs to be reprimanded for how she acted while I was away.

All I did was taunted the bird a little bit! You never had any problems when I did it to the shiro-akai Hakurei! That's no reason to PIN ME TO THE WALL!

You did much more than that, Remilia-sama. *the name and honorific is all but spit out as a snarl, the sound of metal being scraped across metal afterwards* You had the entire hotel in an uproar, and I'd be shocked if Scourge-san ever forgave us for what this all did to Rouge-san.

You say that as if I should ca-*shink* IN THE NAME OF THE APOSTLES! What in the HELL is wrong with you, Sakuya!


I can just pull myself out of the wall, you know. I'm stronger than you, and a few silver knives won't change that.

...Not without tearing off several layers of skin, muscle, and possibly losing a few vital organs as a result. I know you can regenerate, Remilia-sama, but I would think that you'd rather not suffer any more pain than necessary, mm?


[[Yeeeeah. Well, Sakuya's back to normal! And scarier than she was as a vampire. o_o; Those who have particularly honed chaos senses will be able to notice the brief cease and sudden rush of chaos that comes with a time stop right before this post, and Super will have the pointy ends of a good twenty or thirty silver daggers poking through the wall between his and Sakuya's room for a few days!]]

*the recording cuts on immediately to the clatter of glass and porcelain across a lightly carpeted floor, suggesting someone accidentally hit the button on the laptop by accident - likely whoever it was that belongs to that horrific, pained scream. Said scream lasts for a few moments, then fades into a soft, shattered sobbing, with the occasional pained whimper and yowl of pain every few minutes. More perceptive listeners might hear Sakuya's voice in between the sobs, shaky and slightly uneven..*

a...ahahah... l...leave it to this demonic hotel... ahahaha... or... or did you do this, Remilia-sama... if... if you did this to me... if this is your fault... I'm... I'm going to kill you....

*the shuffling of cloth is highly audible, along with a less-than-pleased maid*

Are you sure this is really a good idea, Remi-sama...

Of course it is. The perfect magical girl has to have a rival that is perfectly evil, and every evil villain needs to have a magical girl minion, doesn't she? So hurry up and recite what Patchouli had taught you!

*sigh* Fine... *completely unenthused* "Magical Sakuya-chan staaaar. Magical maid transformation, cast off~ ZA WARUUUUUDOOOOO~"

...good, good, but next time try to put a little EMOTION into it, okay? Not having the spirit when you do this makes the nude transformation sequence that much creepier, like rape or somethin'...

*a bit of a whine* Remilia-sama... *a pause*'ve had that recording this whole time, haven't you...

*the whoosh of something thrown, then a sharp static before the recording cuts off*
