//I chose a fairy because of the contrast between a touhou fairy and a traditional fairy.

  >The witch turns to face you, "It's ok -"
  >Lilian steps forward and jabs a finger in Marisa's direction, "That's right white and black.  Me and Eillia, a super fairy, are going to get Miss Patchouli's desserts!"

  >Marisa rolls her eyes while smirking.  Patchouli lets out an exasperated sigh.

  >The librarian says to Lilian, "To qualify for the reward the participant needs to stop the rat from making to the library."  She turns to one of the red haired women with wings, "Start a standard properties analysis circle modify for the spirit and local shape-shifters."

>The woman bows to Patchouli before scampering off.  Patchouli narrows her eyes at you and Marisa before taking a seat at one of the numerous tables.  Paper and a hot cup appear beside the pajama clad woman.

  >"Can I get you something, Marisa?" Turning your head you find a human maid with silver hair frowning at you.

  >"Black tea." The witch motions at you, "Scame with me, Sakuya."

  >"Pardon me.  Can I get you anything to drink or eat?"

>Lilian jumps up, "Coco, Eillia you should try it.  It's sweet and warm and good."

#Ah, interesting.

>Snicker
>>"Super Fairy?! I wouldn't call myself that but thanks."

>Look towards the human maid
>"I'll take Coco please, Miss Sakuya."

>Look towards the witch, Patchouli.
>>"So, how will you go about helping me with my body issue?"

>Sakuya vanishes.  On the table in front of Patchouli plates of crepes and tarts appear out of thin air.  Marisa and Lilian dig into the treats.

>"Presuming that this isn't a prank then the course of action would be determined by the cause of your condition.  The most probable cause of your affliction is a possessed spiritual core."

>What in the world is a spiritual core?  Is she messing around?

>After swallowing her tart Marisa says, "She's a sidhe youkai not a spirit."

>Pity flashes across the librarians face replaced by a sober look, "If this isn't a prank then your predicament will be a tedious task to fix."

With a mouth full of food Lilian jumps with her hand raised, "Aren't some of the fairies sidhe?"

>Patchouli hand reaches towards the empty plate of tarts, the sweet treats reappear just before the witch's hand grabs empty air. "A few of the fairy maids were before metamorphizing."

>What?

>Drinks have appeared on the table.

>Take a sip from our drink
>"This is no prank, though I wish it was."

>Sigh
>"I had a feeling it would be tedious in some way. Do you need a full explanation of my situation? Or can you tell me now why this problem is going to be troublesome to fix?"

>Have a tart, the others are enjoying them so it must be good.

>"The sidhe were reshaped into the form that you find yourself in now by the shifting beliefs of the victorian era.  Curing your predicament would require filtering belief and reshaping people's perception of you."
Patchouli quietly drinks from a cup decorated with images of various flowers.

>The purple witch continues, "Though I am curious as how you were able to recover your memories and why you believed that you had swapped forms with a spiritual entity."

>Patchouli's explanation sounds off.  Human belief shouldn't be potent enough to reshape your entire race.

>The librarians assistant returns.  Patchouli waits patiently for any further questions.

>Do you ask questions or get examined

>"If you're curious about my previous guess..."
>>Tell Patchouli about our experience with the magic mirror so far.

>"Would it help if I mentioned that I come from a place that may have different... dynamics involving metamorphosis of Sidhe races?"
>>"As far as I know, human perception and belief shouldn't be powerful enough to affect an entire race, or mine at least. I guess things work differently here?"
>"Also, what is a 'Spiritual Core'? I am not familiar with that term at all."

>"If you're curious about my previous guess..."
>>Tell Patchouli about our experience with the magic mirror so far.

>Patchouli crosses her legs and taps her cheek in thought.  "Your observations have opened a hole in my hypothesis."

Silence permeates the library.  The librarian is lost in thought. Marisa sits frozen with a crepe in mid-chew.  Lilian stares at you with Coco dribbling down her mouth.  Behind bookshelves even the staff can be seen staring.

Marisa is the first to speak. "But. . .youkai are formed from human beliefs.  How. . .that. . ." The witch mumbles in confusion.

"Does that mean you can play outside? Like actually outside Gensokyo like we were?" Lillian's eyes glimmer with awe and envy.

"Incredible. For the principles of reality to differ that much from our own." The purple witch mutters an incantation too quick to understand.  A small complex sigil made of white light pops into being around her wrist.  "I would like you to cast a spell."

>But you’re already casting the glamour and flight spell.

>The librarian speaks in the tone of a tutor. "A spirit core is the foundation of a youkai.  Much like a brain it contains the personality and memories as well as the soul of a youkai.  It's destruction means the death of that youkai."

>"I'm already maintaining a couple but if you need a more obvious example, I'll give one."

>Float down to the ground and deactivate flight.
>"I'm going to disappear for a moment, don't be alarmed."
>>Activate the Invisibility Spell

>You vanish from sight.  Patchouli begins to fiddle with the sigil until eventually she gets up and walks over to you.

>"Truly astounding,"

>"Come on, that light fairy can pull the same trick," Marisa says.

>"Inaccurate, one would expect the magical signature of a spell," The purple magician pulls out a notepad and scribbles feverishly.  "I'll need to examine the mirror and figure out the mechanics of your magic before we can return you to your proper form."

>Marisa smirks, "It should be a day or two before it shows up then we follow the shooty fairies and people in the wrong bodies."

>Patchouli takes a bite of a tart before speaking, "I would recommend visiting the Hakurei Shrine," Marisa looks like she is about to object before the purple witch continues. "The shrine maiden would either sell or seal the artifact.  Kirisame Second Hand Store in the Human village to confirm that the mirror wasn't sold."

>The ordinary magician's countenance darkens.

//It's been a while since this was last worked on, so I've unfortunately forgotten most of the recent events (I do remember most of the backstory and previous events though). I've looked back a little, and I've got a general idea of where we are again, but one thing I don't remember at all is this mention of a magic mirror. Could you remind me of what this is?

And one more question: Does the player character know that Gensokyo is "located" in Japan? If not, would they know about Japan (in the sense that it exists) in the real world anyway?

Thanks in advance!

>The magic mirror is the last thing Elilia remembers running into before waking up in Gensokyo.  It was said by others that there was a mirror like the one Elilia ran into next to her in Gensokyo.

>Elilia was told Gensokyo is in japan.

>You know that the Japanese people are famous for giving life to inanimate objects
->Being an island nation they likely suffered from tsunami because of the world serpent's return
->The land is run by different gods with overlapping territory
->Finally there is an unlikely chance your magic may do nothing or may do unexpected things

//Okay, thank you very much.

>"Thank you very much for the assistance, Miss Patchouli. However, before I depart, I would like to ask a question. You and the head maid do not seem to be of Japanese origin. This is just a thought, but would you and the other residents here happen to originate outside of Japan, such as a region called Europe?"

//* This is a nod to someone from the UK I've met saying that people there like to "make fun" of the French. I'm not personally knowledgeable about why that is, but I have my theories (such as the two countries' long resentment of each other in their history).

"No, that should be everything," Patchouli pauses. "If you are ever looking for a job the mansion is always hiring." The woman opens her book and begins to read.

Marisa's widen at the purple witch's words.  Lillian's mouth is open with coco dribbling down her clothes.

Lillian returns your curtsy. "It was a blast meeting you."

"Right follow me." Marisa flies off on her broom at a moderate pace.

>Marisa's shouts in surprise.  The witch's broom hangs vertically in the air as the woman falls towards the ground.

>"Aah, you were supposed to fall," Two women appear with Marisa's broom in one of the newcomer's hands.  You recognize the fairy clothes on them, but they are to fair to be sidhe or at least common sidhe.
