Look at this knight, just look at this fucking knight!

Look at how much of a bad-ass he is, kicking ass and saving fairies, while still being an awesome bro to everyone in the land. No matter who you, as long as you aren't an evil asshole, this knight is your bro. He probably just saved the kingdom from the forces of evil and he's just chillin'.

Tovin did one last check, walking around Sir Reginald slowly, poking at the joints in his thick plate with a thin bodkin to make sure none of the chainmail gussets underneath had bunched up.

“You’re all set.”

Sir Reginald nodded as Tovin handed him his helm. He slipped it on and let Tovin do up the leather fasteners; his own hands were already gauntleted. Tovin withdrew, and Reginald gripped his helm firmly and twisted left, then right. “Secure,” he declared. He strode forward, towards the door of the tent, and Tovin coughed politely behind him.

“Sire.”

Reginald, remembering himself, turned, and let Tovin hand him the lance. He hefted it, angling it slightly to keep the tip from brushing the ceiling. The balance was perfect.

“How do I look?” he asked.

“... solemn,” the squire answered truthfully. “Not as vibrant as your own colors, but... they’ll take note.”

Reginald touched his visor to acknowledge, unable to nod with armor donned. With no further words, he stepped out of the tent.

The field was silent. Tourneys or challenges were almost always chaotic affairs, with the voice of the crowd rising to meet the contestants as they stepped from their tents- some had been known to stand poised at the entrance, waiting to emerge the second the crowd-murmur changed, to split the enthusiasm eagerly.

Today, he was greeted with naught but the battle silence, under which men’s terrors and apprehensions roiled like mist eddies in the minutes before the lines came to grips. This was more to Reginald’s liking. This, he was experienced with.

He strode forward, not letting the massively heavy lance in his left hand sag an inch. From behind two of his men-at-arms, first peeking, then running, came Cirno, the ‘lady’ who’s colors he now wore.

She paused at his knee, looking up at the towering armored beast he’d become. Then she thrust her arms up at him, in the universal gesture, innocent as a child.

“... Sir Reginald?”

He hesitated a moment- for he stood in full colors on the field of challenge- and then knelt to pick her up. It was a little late to worry about propriety.

Touhou is a series of hell shooter games created by Zun, a man whose love of hats is only surpassed by his love of booze. Only the original games were designed by Zun. Everything else is basically fanmade, or in select cases Zun-approved, but his involvement in the series so far was simply making the original hellshooter games

If you've read a manga about it, it's probably fan made. If you've seen the anime about it, it's DEFINITELY fan made. The closest thing touhou has to a Zun-approved game that wasn't designed by him personally would be Immaterial and Missing Power, Scarlet Weather Rhapsody, and Unthinkable Natural Law (also often called Hisoutensoku), which were games designed by a guy called Tasofro. All of these games are considered canon

They stood that way for a little while, the small fairy perched on the shoulder of her Champion, eyes closed, resting her head on his helm.

“... Why?” Cirno whispered to him at last. “Why you?”

“My duty,” Reginald answered.

She sighed slightly, and he felt a slight chill coming through his shoulder. “No, I mean- out of all the knights in crissy-dum-“

“Christendom-“

“Christendom,” she amended, “why are you the only one?”

“Cirno... most of the knights in Christendom, aren’t. Knights, I mean.”

“Oh...” she said, absorbing that. “And... why aren’t you afraid of me? Like they are?”

“I... “ for the first time since they’d met, Cirno detected uncertainty in Sir Reginald’s voice. “... some men,” he continued, “some men, they want everything. So they fear everything, because anything could take it away from them; collapse their schemes on them like the paper facades they are. You understand?”

“Yes,” she whispered, and hugged his helm a little tighter, eyes still closed. “I know a lot of people like that, where I come from.”

“Right,” Reginald answered. “But if you want little- only to go to your grave with no regrets- you don’t fear much. Least of all a girl who can amuse herself for half an hour with a frozen frog.”

Cirno let slip a smile, but a sad one. Everyone in Gensokyo called her an idiot- and half of those in this chrissy-dom, too- but she could feel what Reginald wasn’t telling her. “Is that armor really strong? Can it protect you from anything?”

“Most everything,” he said. “Not so good against arrows.”

The concept of jousting had been explained to Cirno earlier. “Good enough. Don’t you get hurt, okay?”

He adjusted the hand supporting her hip to hold her a little more securely. “Don’t you worry. I’ve got a habergeon on underneath, for arrows.”

She started. “But I thought- I-“

“So do they,” Reginald said, his voice gaining an edge of ice. “The Bishop is used to getting his way- most of the bastards are. And if they can’t get it one way, they’ll probably get it another.”

Cirno clutched his helmet, not wanting to understand.

“If- *when* it starts- you stay with those two,” Reginald said, gesturing towards his two men-at-arms. “Don’t worry about me. I’ve twenty of my best men with sturdy mounts in the woods not a mile from here. It’ll be over quickly. Understand?”

Cirno nodded, and Reginald lowered his lady to the ground again. She walked back to her guards as Tovin walked up with Sir Reginald’s horse.

“All set?”

“Set,” Tovin said brusquely, his eyes already smoldering with the battle rage. He had a fast horse and a clear voice; he’d alert the rescue party.

“To our duty,” Reginald whispered. He slung himself into the saddle one-handed, still gripping the lance, and trotted forward to begin the joust.

Probably more then a little. I know very little of touhou, though I gather that Cirno MAY be a total idiot, or just intelligent in ways we don't quite get. Then again, she's alternately drawn as a full-grown hottie and as a small little fairy, so I figure, what the hell, I'll take my liberties.

I figure NOBODY EXPECTS THE MEDIEVAL INQUISITION might have changed her outlook a bit. Whatever half-assed excuse you like the best, I'll go with that.

One of the main reasons I like Cirno; she seems the least demon-tastic of all, and the whole fairy/Fey personality archetype is one that everybody is a bit more familiar with.

Cirno's dumb, but she's a fairy. A short attention span, childish flights of fancy, and a mercurial temper come with the territory.

Basically harmless, though. If Cirno hurts someone, it's usually not intentional.

To be fair, canon Alice DOES share similarities. She keeps to herself, spends her time making intricately detailed dolls, is "nice" but not really social.

If Gensokyo were real, she'd be here telling people to THIN THEIR PAINTS.

>>9806045

That... sounds about right, yeah. I prefer to merge the interpretations- she IS a distant, kind of creepy tinkerer (a little obsessed with 3.5 character builds, etc, etc,) and that in turn feeds the crippling loneliness when nobody wants to get within a mile of her, making for your classic vicious circle.

And she even spends all day making and moving minis. It's perfect.

>> No.9806277

Crippling loneliness is, by all indications, non-canon. She keeps to herself because she has work to do.

Marisa occasionally bugs her, filching her stuff. Not a hostile relationship, though.

She's trying to create a doll that moves independently, or so she told Aya. She claims she "saw one once." I assume she doesn't mean Medicine Melancholy (who's a youkai, so she doesn't count), but some other doll.

Funnily enough, the bit about her being yandere could be tied into Aya's article on her, since she'd apparently been putting up straw dolls and hammering nails into them; it's implied she's cursing someone.

She's still a doll which has come to life by itself. You see the little floating Medicine next to the big one? That's probably really her; she says that she was abandoned in the Lily field, and that her body is made of poison. She's most likely a tsukumogami like Kogasa, an item which gained life.

All of these are considered canon. Including the part where she can't see out of her darkness, and so runs into trees all the time.

And really, Cirno gets the stupid label a lot because of the PoFV joke, but plenty of characters are dumber than her. Like Rumia here, or Mystia, who can't even read.

Indeed, Cirno is a bona fide genius... for a fairy. Most fairies have been described as worthless, only good for cannon fodder. The only other fairies to have speaking rolls are the Three Mischievous Fairies, and they are all dumber than Cirno. All of the other fairies are nothing but cannon fodder.

Cirno's also the strongest fairy, which is a big deal.

She's just pretty weak compared to everything else.

RE: Cirno

The reason she's 'stupid' is that she's got the mind of a child. So it's not that she's an idiot - she's just perpetually locked at like... age 8. (or, if you prefer, 9.) So naturally she's not very knowledgeable about the world, rather childish, and extremely brash. "I am the strongest fairy" = "I am strong."
