anko3528: Who's the One at Fault?
Summary by Wrathkal:
The story starts with a baby Reimu's thoughts. She has dreams, eating munch-munch and sweet-sweets, sleeping peacefully, learning her mother's songs so she can sing them, and when she grows big, take a beautiful Marisa as her wife, and have little ones...
She will be born easy!
A few minutes ago...
Anon is standing before a now single-parent family that has invaded his home. He has already beaten them up and they're apologizing and begging for mercy. The Marisa tried to attack him with an ice pick, so he killed it. The rest protest that they haven't done anything, but he reminds them that they were goading Marisa on. That's when Mother Reimu goes into convulsions.
Anon bets with them on what sort of koyukkuri it will be:
Good Marisa- He'll take their accessories, but spare their lives.
Bad Marisa- He'll shave them bald, and release them
Good Reimu- He'll shave them bald, rip out their eyes, cut off their tongues, beat them up, then let them go.
Bad Reimu- No need to say...
The other koyukkuris notice is a Baby Reimu and quickly yell at it to go back in, or switch with a Baby Marisa if there's one. She sees that her family are watching her silently, and thinking that they're too happy for words, decides to give a really easy greeting.
"Yuyu~n! Reimyu ish shorry for being sho pwetty!!"
The realization of the type of koyukkuri is met with a foreboding silence, then Anon breaks it by commenting that scum will give birth to scum. Baby Reimu is angry at him, but her family beg her to apologize in a last ditch effort, but she refuses, and so does Anon, who tells them it's too late.
The mother Reimu snaps first, then the other koyukkuris. Blaming her for not being born a Marisa and calling her scum, they yell at her to die. Anon steps in and smashes the Reimu's head with an icepick. While the other koyukkuris are scared, Baby Reimu is actually pleased that her mother is dead.
Anon tells the remainder to kill each other, saying he'll spare the last one (BATTLE ROYALE!). One of them gives in first, then they start fighting each other as Anon and Koreimu watch. Baby Reimu is derisive of her elder sisters.
A few minutes later, only a grievously wounded Koreimu is left, bleeding paste from bites from her back. Anon picks up the Baby Reimu and shows it to the Koreimu, asking what should he do with it. Then he drops Baby Reimu down on it, and Koreimu bites off Baby Reimu's feet in anger. Koreimu continues to chomp on her little sister, taking a cheek off next.
As Baby Reimu is wondering why this is happening to her, Anon tells her it's because she's not meant to be happy. When she demands to know why, he tells her it's because she's a Reimu.
When it sinks in, Baby Reimu goes berserk, screaming at her dead mother for not giving birth to her as a Marisa. Then at her sister, then at everyone else besides her, blaming everything else for her current plight.
"...well, you're going to die first."
As Anon says that, Koreimu bites off Baby Reimu's face.
As Baby Reimu dies, she wonders who exactly is at fault for her fate. Is it her family? Her? The world? No one knows. But she does know one thing for sure.
(...wanted to, take it, more easy...)
That is, that the world denied Baby Reimu her happiness.
