I'm trying to write a story about yukkuri, and i find myself, strangely enough, having a hard time figuring out what to expect from yukkuri in relation to what a human would find logical. I guess this is because I have a hard time seeing how things will play out in my head, and also because I don't entirely grasp their mindset.
There is a platinum grade Udonge that the story takes the perspective from. She is extremely intelligent by yukkuri standards, and she responds to things in mostly human ways. That's why she's such a high rank.
She's left to take care of a stray Reimu for a few days. Reimu wakes up in a room, sees no one in it, and declares it home. This is standard.
However, I find myself stumped trunk to figure out how she'd react to someone trying to explain that someone else was there before her, and its someone else's home. It feels like it would keep looping around - Udonge explains its master's home, Reimu says she did declaration, Udonge says master had already done it, Reimu says no one was here, Udonge says someone WAS there, Reimu insists its her home.
I tried making her understand but nothing felt right. Forcing it is incompatible. Would this keep going in a circle until Reimu connects the dots and decides that Udonge is an invader?
I'm probably going to have a lot of questions like this. I wonder what the best way to deal with this would even be. Sidestepping the issue seems to be the wisest course of action; let Reimu forget about the matter.
But then how do you solidify the fact that its not Reimu's home later? Can Reimu even understand that idea?
