Little note here, while Elizabeth Báthory was a prolific mass murderer, there's no evidence that she actually bathed in blood. The first written version of the story was from over 100 years after her death, and contemporary accounts of her actual atrocities don't even mention it. That said, the fictionalized version did inspire a more well-known figure, Count Dracula.

Scouring the recesses of DR is so rewarding when I find works like this.

If you haven't read this already I suggest you do so.

Felt lukewarm about this first time reading, appreciate it a lot more second time around. It's beautiful writing and well put-together; nothing is included that's unnecessary, and everything contributes to that chapter's theme while feeling relatively natural. They feel like things which could all happen in Gensokyo. I like the feeling it gives.

Such an exquisite set of stories. For all the works about Gensokyo being this hub of endless fun and shenanigans, I've always visualized it as a quiet and tranquil place, a product of an age where people lived in tandem with nature, and it was perfectly acceptable to spend an evening staring wordlessly at blooming flowers. Without information highways or bustling crowds or routinized goals, the world seems so much larger, and though Gensokyo is rather tiny as fictional worlds go, one thing I've always loved about Touhou is how vast and diverse it seems. This collection really does justice to that pensive, thoughtful sea of lives, and even the romance is wonderfully subtle and nuanced, built upon shared thoughts and eloquent words rather than mere impulses. It's unique, thought-provoking, and fulfilling in every way.
