Instead she just sleeps and annoys Reimu.

If Yukari were Sauron who would Ran and Chen be?

Maybe Chen could have a shikigami, and that shikigami could have a shikigami, etc, so that there were nine total.

Actually southern Mordor (the area around the Sea of Nurn) was quite fertile.

Only the Plateau of Gorgoroth was a volcanic wasteland.

Sauron had quite a lot of slaves there, making food for his armies.

Now how about you read the book if you have any more questions.

Eirin would probably make a decent Gandalf. Though I'm not sure her personality really is, besides constantly trying to rape Reisen, or maybe that's just the doujins messing with my memory.

The Moon won because technology triumphs magic. ZUN himself said that technology is superior. That's kinda why technology is dominant and magical beings had to run away to Gensokyo.

As to why she doesn't conquer Gensokyo, why should she? She's too busy sleeping or drinking tea.
She helped make Gensokyo anyway, I think.

She didn't really MAKE Gensokyo. Everything Yukari does is for the sake of the youkai kind. She helped set up the Great Hakurei Border.

If you look at Gensokyo's history, you'll see that she would get involved at any point where there is an unsettling disruption that threatens the balance of power, the border, or just the existence of youkai in general.

So she's more so keeping things in order. She doesn't take over Gensokyo because its just not the kind of world she wants.

Might've been something that slowly transitioned in through the years to makai. Travel between Gensokyo and Makai is rare, but not impossible, so it might've become popularized there as well.
