A woman dressed in a blue and white kimono stood a top of a hill, where her home, an enchanting looking temple lies. Her wavy pink hair beneath her mob cap seemed to move with the wind, touching her cheeks every once in a while. Using her fan that had an intricate design, she slowly fanned herself.
“Hmm..” Yuyuko Saigyouji stared down upon rows and rows of cherry blossom trees, looking deeply in thought. Looking down at the trees her gardener cared for usually calmed her soul, spiritually speaking. But right now, even looking at her domain could not calm the raging thoughts in her mind. With a sigh, the Ghost Princess of Hakugyokurou closed her fan as well as her eyes.
“Yuyuko-sama?” Yuyuko opened her eyes and glanced at her garderner. Youmu Konpaku may seemed as stoic as ever but her phantom half shifted restlessly, as if feeling agitated.
“Ah, Youmu-chan.” She turned back to the trees below, a strange frown gracing her lips. “What brings you here? Shouldn’t you be fetching Yukari?”
“I was about to leave, when I see how... Silent you are.” Youmu bowed her head. “I’m sorry for the intrusion, Yuyuko-sama. I couldn’t help but ask if you are alright.”
“Alright..” She repeated, giving the gardener a gentle smile. “I’m fine. It’s not me that I’m worried about.”
Used to the vague answer, the silver haired woman nodded, though the phantom half dipped it’s head. “I see.”
“I’m sorry I didn’t give you a clearer answer, Youmu-chan. It’s just... complicated.” Yuyuko shook her head. “Thank you for asking. I always knew you cared, despite how emotionless you are.”
The ghost princess giggled, but even that died quickly. She went back to staring at the cherry blossom trees as Youmu bowed. “I shall take my leave, Yuyuko-sama.”
A nod was given as a response. “Please be fast, Youmu. Even though this has nothing to do with Gensokyo matters, it concerns a supernatural power.”
And just as the gardener was about to leave, she heard her mistress whispered.
“Apparently time in Gensokyo flows differently than the Outside World.”
A rather short prologue, don’t you think?
Anyway, this will be a crossover between Hetalia and Touhou, as you can see. But I will not be using the normal, canon crossover, no. This will be a HetaOni crossover. Bless that game, no matter how many tears I shed due to it.
This came to me in a rather unexpected way. As I was listening to Insanity (Italy and Germany version) I began to think of how to create a crossover that isn’t.. the same, ya know? Then I began imagining how Italy and Yuyuko would interact if they meet and it just expands from there.
Updates will be irregular. Just an early warning. With all the things happening in real life, I’m busy as it is.
Another thing, chapters will be longer, I promise.
Jordan Young: *ALERT FOR POSSIBLE SPOILERS* Where to start? I don't know how to sum up this review, this story was absolutely sensational. Brilliant. Flawless. I loved every single bit of this story, it is truly amazing. I read this story in fifteen hours, it is magnificent. I loved everything about it, the p...
Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

Emperor2000: I joined Inkitt and downloaded this book following a friend who has been on here sometime recommending it. After they spoke about it a bit, I thought why not give it a go. Initially I only expected to read a few chapters, as I have little time to spend reading (not as much as I like). However I c...
JanThompson: This book gives a beautiful description of a country which one rarely gets to see. The contrast between rich and poor is very evident too.The storyline actually sheds a compelling light on why women in certain countries sell themselves just to help their families or even to survive themselves.

Samantha Speed: There were several punctuation, grammar, and missing word problems but it did not detract from the story. This story was very well done, enjoyable, and had an interesting enough plot. It took a while to finish. This story is not complete. I love it, but I want to see another book or have more cha...
