A Snowy Tale

Chapter Text

I landed on what looks like another Marshmallow, next to an Ancient Temple.

"M...Myon..." A voice said.

As I looked down, I realize that I'm lying on top of another person, so I quickly got off of them in a panic state.

"I-I'm so sorry!" I say. "I was falling, and I didn't know what to do and- A-are you okay!?" I ask.

Luckily, the person who I was talking too got up just fine. They pat the dust off of them and took a breath in.

They have silver hair, and are wearing green clothes. I notice that they have a pair of swords around their waist, and what looks like another version of Marshmallow.

We made eye contact real quick before they quickly respond.

"O-oh! It's okay! You don't need to apologize. I was the one who wasn't aware of my surroundings for a moment there." The girl said.

"A-are you sure? I was falling very quickly." I ask.

"No worries... But may I ask for your name?" They ask.

"I-It's Tsumetai Snow." I say with a bit of hesitation.

"It's nice to meet you, Tsumetai-san." The girl said. "I'm Youmu Konpaku. It's a pleasure to meet you."

For someone who literally took the impact of a falling being, they are very polite. I find their ability to remain calm and diligent almost surprising.

"If you don't mind, may I ask why you were falling out of the sky?" Youmu asked me.

"Um... It's... a bit of a long story... There was this woman named Yukari who-"

"Look out!" Youmu told me immediately.

Almost instantly, she grabbed my hand and pulled me out of the way of what looked like flashing bullets of light, crashing into the ground.

The dust settled, and I look in the distance to see another figure, everything suddenly turned bizarre.

A woman, who wore blue and white, posing like a Jojo character, stood there menacingly alongside a even more menacing cloud person.

"Ah, Youmu Konpaku. What business do you have with Myouren Temple?" The woman asked.

Youmu, suddenly resembling a bit more like that one character with the sword stand I recall, responded to her.

"Ichirin-san... I believe you know why I'm here... You have something here that my master wants." Youmu said.

"...Yare yare daze... How many times must I tell you Youmu... If you want our sacred waters..." Ichirin said while her cloud moved forward. "...Then you must earn it."

"...With pleasure... Myon-chan!!!" Youmu shouted, pulling her sword out.

As if it was sudden, Youmu's Phantom-Half transformed into a white copy of her, grabbing her sword midair as it posed menacingly.

"Just what the hell is happening?" I said outloud.

And suddenly, a little slip came out of a gap portal. I took it and read it.

You can thank the RNG gods for this opportunity-Yukari

...What?

"Unzan... Do your thing!!!" Ichirin shouted.

And just like that, both Myon-chan and Unzan dashed at one another.

"ORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORA!!!" Unzan shouted, punching rapidly.

While his punches were blinding, Myon-chan was able to keep up.

Eventually Myon-chan started using the sword in their hand and counterattacked.

"MYON!!!" Myon-Chan shouted back.

With a precise swing, she managed to slice at Unzan's cheek a bit, grazing ever so slightly. That caused Ichirin to take a step back in pain.

"Damn it... You gotten faster Youmu." Ichirin said.

"There's more where that came from! Myon-Chan!" Youmu shouted.

"Myon!!!" Myon-chan took the sword and stabbed through Unzan's body.

"I win!!!" Youmu shouted.

"...You think you won, yet I only let my guard down on purpose." Ichirin said with a smirk.

"Eh?"

And suddenly, I witness Unzan vanish instantly, leaving Myon-Chan confused.

When I looked at Youmu, I saw that Unzan managed to pin her to the ground hard.

"H-how!?" Youmu asked. "Since when can Unzan evade Myon-Chan's attacks like that!?"

"Yare Yare Daze... You forget that Unzan can phase through solid matter pretty easily." Ichirin said. "Now... I'll make this quick so I can get back to guarding the temple... Unzan!!!"

"ORA!!!" Unzan roared, as it unleashed a flurry of punches down upon Youmu.

They were so quick, yet slow enough that I can see every single punch landing on Youmu, as she gets launched into the Temple's entrance.

I was absolutely stunned by what I just saw. Then suddenly, Ichirin glared at me.

"You... I don't know you, but judging by your interaction with Youmu not to long ago, I assume you're acquainted with her?" She asked me.

"N-no! I just fell from the sky and-"

I suddenly couldn't breathe. I look at Marshmallow and see that Unzan had grabbed it by where my neck would be located.

"Strange... To think there was another Half-Human Half-Phantom living here in Gensokyo... I only know of 2 and I can assure you that you're not either of them... So how about you tell me where you came from and maybe you won't suffer the fate like Youmu."

I didn't know what to do... I couldn't breathe and I was helpless.

But... I need too do something, for I was dragged into this mess and I intend on getting out of it.

But what can I do? I am no match for Ichirin or her Unzan in terms of raw power. She's like the Jotaro Kujo of this world for heaven's sake!
