document 002; please answer i mean if you have time ]  
I was just wondering, um, because I'm still not sure what's going on... Has anyone ever made a guide? Or, ah, a FAQ or something I can look at? If not, I mean, it would be really helpful, right?

Edit There is one, actually, um, by Dr Fosterover here. It's really helpful! But, I thought, maybe, people might have some things to add. So, I guess, what else do you think should be on it?

A Surprise Marriage Between Shrine Maiden and Princess (pretend I posted this a week ago)  
[basically this is an article from her newspaper, the Bunbunmaru, that Aya decided to share with the community. all text, yo.]

Season XX, Day XX of XX Month

An unexpected marriage between an unexpected couple! Certainly the most bizarre scoop of the season! I've been reporting on nothing but everyday things and the rare incident now and then, so this was a very refreshing turn of events.

[oh look, a new face! however, unlike most newcomers' first posts, it looks like this is an intentional recording. it certainly looks like she knows what she's doing, anyways.]

Ah, there we go!

[she holds whatever she's using to communicate in front of her at arms length; slim black feathered wings protruding from her back come into view. the winged girl is perched high up in a tree. distant mountains and more treetops are visible around her.]

A community that spans across different worlds... a perfect pool for all sorts of interesting news and gossip, just as I'd imagined! I can't say I was expecting to find something like this when I picked up this item that fell in from the outside world. What an incredible stroke of luck~ [she folds in her wings and sits back against the trunk of the tree.]

Ahh, where are my manners? I am Aya Shameimaru, reporter and photographer for the Bunbunmaru Newspaper of Gensokyo. I don't expect any of you to have heard of it. Well, one of you should have, at least. [cough lazy armpit miko cough.]

Anyways, why don't you all tell me something about yourselves or your worlds? But let's make this a challenge- I only want to hear something that would be worthy of the front page! Don't bother introducing yourselves with names. You see, I've taken the liberty of browsing through posts on the community beforehand to familiarize myself with as much of this as possible; I already know who most of you are.

[Aya balances the recording device in front of her and flips open a notebook, pen at the ready. two crows suddenly fly down and perch on a branch above her head. one of them hops down onto her shoulder and lightly pecks her ear, but Aya only acknowledges it with a brief tilt of her head.]

One more thing- I'd love to have a worldhop device of my own or someone to teach me to travel between worlds. Name your price for either and we can negotiate. Of course, currency obviously isn't an option here but I'm sure you can think of some other method of payment.

Now then! Everyone share something interesting about yourselves, please!
