Took the liberty of fleshing out a backstory for the Touhou invasion...

------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Touhou / Gensokyo Expeditionary Force

The Touhou hail from the mysterious realm of Gensokyo, a magical world cut off from the rest of existence by a strong spiritual barrier maintained by the Mistress of Boundaries, Yakumo Yukari. However this did not mean the inhabitants were uninterested in the outside world. Twice before Yukari had, from behind the scenes, orchestrated invasions of other territories, namely the Lunar Capital of the Lunarians. Both those excursions have ended in failure. But this did not bother Yukari for like many other Gensokyo inhabitants they view such matters simply as ways to pass the time.

This time her interest has turned to this galaxy, piqued by the long and drawn out conflicts over "moe", a concept not entirely alien to the Gensokyo sensibility. She persuaded, cajoled and tricked five of Gensokyo's finest to be part of the Gensokyo Expeditionary Force:

Hakurei Reimu, the Protector of Dreams and Tradition, but also the poorest shrine maiden in the land, was lured by the possibility of attracting new worshippers to her shrine (and thus get more donations~). Yet Yukari didn't see fit to remind her that the inhabitants of this galaxy would have a hard time making it to the Hakurei shrine...

Kirisame Marisa, the Black Magician and master thief extraordinaire, was always quick to tag along, her eyes lighting up with the promise of adventure and 'booty', a whole galaxy of precious things to steal...

To Shameimaru Aya, the Tengu Reporter, news from this "newly discovered" galaxy would be a great scoop to lift the flagging sales of her gossipy newspaper, confident that her control over wind would allow her to finish her investigative reporting in double-quick time... but Yukari forgot to mention there was no air in space...

Remilia Scarlet, the Scarlet Vampire, was simply bored and needed some distraction, plus it was a perfect chance to conquer new lands to brag about. The fact that she was not allowed to bring her elegant servant Sakuya caused her to sulk a bit...

Her friend, Patchouli Knowledge on the other hand, was drawn out of her usual scholarly haunt of the Voile Library by the promise of new majicks to study. This and the spurious rumors of seven gems holding elemental power scattered through the galaxy (memo memo...) made her disregard her chronic asthma and embark on this journey.

Having assembled this motley invasion force, Yukari quickly (before they got restless and settled down into another one of those endlessly recurring tea parties) ripped a gap in space-time and sent the Expeditionary Force on its way, not paying attention to the fact that her actions caused the implosion of the Great Void which caused much upheaval to the north-western quadrant of the galaxy. This naturally drew the attention of the major powers and especially the Time-Space Admistration Bureau, who viewed this disturbance in the fabric of space with great seriousness.

And so, the Gensokyo Expeditionary Force arrived in the galaxy with a bang, but used as they are to dueling in the ritualistic 'spellcard' manner of limited warfare, will they be able to adapt to the 'total war' conditions of this galaxy?
