A few weeks ago I had this... weird... dream(set?). It seemed interesting at the time, so I wrote down what I could remember of it after I woke up. (I don't have dreams this interesting that often. :/)
So there I was, just an observer, surrounded by shrine maidens. We were there to fight a disease called Felt. (This is what happens when you listen to nothing but Touhou arranges for a day.) Somehow, there were also three giant monsters. A "Druid," which was just this giant tree-like thing, that had pretty rapid regen and was able to grow itself into the shape of a hand, to make attacks; a "large grey humanoid mass" (is how I have it written down), which was lost and trying to find its way back home; and some sorta dragon that didn't really do much.
The shrine maidens (keep in mind, I was merely an observer) managed to seal away the disease and lock the monsters up, however some of the monsters left behind relics/artifacts. These weird tiny gold things. (An accurate description I do not have.) We started to investigate these gold things and figured that they needed to be placed in the shadowy parts of a certain one story building that should be abandoned.
Intermission! Another shrine maiden, dressed in black and purple instead of white and red (respectively) keeps reliving a day in a desert where she keeps dying by a giant underground worm monster. How horrid. (Ever see Tremors? One of those I think.)
After placing the artifacts in the shadowy parts of the abandoned building, we realized "these artifacts actually represent the monsters!" So apparently that meant we had to put the artifacts in the light instead of in the shadowy parts. We did that. (Well, they did that; I watched.) Then we noticed that the lights in this abandoned building (if it's abandoned why were there working lights in the first place? None of this makes any sense) were flickering on and off, and slowly going dimmer and dimmer. Oh, well obviously, duh. The relics were pulling away the very concept of "light." That's why we needed to put them in the shadowy parts to begin with.
Well, looks like we (and by we I mean the shrine maidens) have to go and put the relics back in the sha- hey wait a moment. There's a loli in one of those rooms in this abandoned building! Alright shrine maidens, you guys take care of the artifacts, I'll be right back. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) I make my way to the room with the loli, but then discover the loli is sick. Uh oh, it's that Felt disease! At this point, I recalled how the disease worked: It binds to your cells, clusters them together into the shape of a hand, then these "hand clusters" slowly grip your insides. (Wtf!?)
My internal monologue is interrupted when I realize that there's an ominous presence staring at me. Surely it will be the cause of my death. That wouldn't be good, 'cause then I'd be ded. I turn around to find that it's all three of the shrine maidens glaring at me. (I think there were only three anyway; I dunno some might've died battling monsters or something.) That'd be all fine and good, just dandy even, if it weren't for the fact that they didn't move the relics from the light back into the shadows.
Naturally, the result is that all three monsters came back, this time powered by the disease Felt. (They just had to be suspicious of me, didn't they?)
One thing leads to another, some stuff happens, and the giant grey humanoid mass monster (which was resurrected) looks up to find a giant flying saucer. It smiles with a face similar to this "
:>" then, with one hand, holds onto the flying saucer, and with the other wrangles the remaining two monsters.
The flying saucer then takes off, and the disease Felt no longer exists, so the loli is cured.
Intermission! A pair of twin highschool girls stand facing each other atop a rooftop dyed in the colors of the setting sun. With tears in her eyes and a small smile on her face, one says to the other "Hey, let's die together. Okay?" The other smiles back, tears also in her eyes, "Yeah. Let's die together." The two of them kiss, and light is emitted from them as the sun disappears. Bathed now in moonlight, the two girls lost all of their emotions and no more interest in their memories. They effectively lost their humanity, and so "died." A highschool boy who was watching this take place from the doorway at the entrance to the rooftop dropped all of the handouts he was supposed to give them.
Then I woke up! c:
Welcome to the NHK was a good show. I've been meaning to read the LN too.
