>Reimu: "Okay, so you're from another world. Does it have a name? Does your race have a name? Do you have a name?"
>"Yes to all three, but it only sounds like eldritch incoherent babbling to people who don't understand it. I suppose you can call me whatever you want, as long as it isn't 'Italicized Text Guy.'"

>"Fine. The name of my world is [insert horrible-sounding gibberish here]. My race is called [insert horrible-sounding gibberish here], but other species tend to call us black holes. As for me, my name is [insert horrible-sounding gibberish here], but as I said, you can call me whatever you like."

>Reimu: "Right. And you've never had need of a simpler name? Haven't you been interacting with other worlds, even besides this one? Surely there's something else you've been called."
>Shiki: "I think we should get down to business. You already know why we're here, I believe, so allow me to be direct: what is the purpose behind your actions?"

>"It was because I didn't quite think your morals were quite correct. I don't think my actions were entirely justified now, though."

>Shiki: "This isn't the first instance in which the time you claim to have lived is different than it was for us. Could you explain that, perhaps?"
>"So, what was it that changed your mind?"
>"And what was your concern with Koishi?"

>"I don't know what's happening either. I don't even know if it's mundane or there's a cause behind it. I just know that this past week felt like over a year."
>"So, what was it that changed your mind?"
>"Nothing really specific. Maybe a few realizations. Mainly time."
>"And what was your concern with Koishi?"
>"Urgh. Don't get me started."

>Quest lag, and increased apathy.

>Shiki: "I would very much like to get you started, actually. As, I'm sure, would Koishi."
>"Well. It's hard to know where to start. For one thing, how the heck do you think that you know what's right for Satori when you can't even understand other people? You were unnecessarily harsh on Utsuho without even considering that she may be right. At least she acknowledged the moral ambiguity of her actions, even if she did go through with them. You should have quit trying to judge people's intentions when you closed your third eye. Not to mention that your life is entirely pointless. What the hell's the point of a life that just wanders around, without any hopes and dreams? Although it was an out-of-character moment, I wasn't surprised when Satori flipped the frickity-frick out."

>Shiki: "Do you take such measures with every single person who does something you don't like? Because I don't see how you would have the time to do so."
>Reimu: "She's got a point. There's gotta be tons of people who've done things you didn't like. What made Koishi stand out? What do you, personally, have to gain from changing Koishi's mind?"
>Shiki: "And what, precicely, do you think gives you the right to decide how others think? Even we Yama do not do that. We judge people, not shape them. What gives you the right to shape them?"

>Shiki: "I'm not talking about simply changing people. What you're doing is different. I myself try to change people whenever I can; I do not like having to send people to hell. But regardless of what I do, the choice is ultimately theirs. With what you're doing, this is not the case. You were acting by altering minds directly. You didn't try to convince me that your beliefs on right and wrong are correct; you tried to alter my mind such that I believed what you do. That is the line. Your method removes choice from the matter, and that, nobody has the right to do."

>"The nightmares were just my way of communication. As for breaking your things...damn, forgot why I did that. And there were doubts before words?"

>Koishi: Can we tell? And if we can, is it?
>You can't tell. Its subconscious is too foreign for you to understand.
