The Grail War is on hold, in fact, most everything is on hold, for now is the time for a Carnival Moment, where things like Grail Wars simply don't happen. Well, at least in not any serious capacity.

You are Shinji Makiri, Ten years ago you suddenly found yourself with the memories of a complete past life that saw this world as a fictional story due to some unprecedented form of inter-dimensional transportation. Since that day, your new composite being has been working to change the grim future laid out for you, but... that really isn't of much concern to you right now.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62c7_zKoSV8

It's starting.

Last Thread: >>4711859

In a certain world-shifting cafe somewhere, a phone loudly rings, only to be picked up by a certain short cat-eared humanoid. "For the million and onth time! We don't serve Myapo Tofu! We- Huh? That's... not what you wanted to call about...? The... Carnival is starting? A Carnival Moment? Again?"

"Un-Un-Un!!" Neco-Arc Bubbles seems especially excited about things... as usual.

"Ah, so the Carnival Moment has returned." A deep voice responds, prepared to explain things once again is Neco-Arc Chaos, the most knowledgeable of all of the Neco-Arcs "Has it really been ten years already since the last one? Finally, various tales will truly cross paths once ag-"

"But... Hasn't that been happening anyway?" Neco-Arc interrupts Neco-Arc Chaos without any care for his repeated explanation from last time.

"Well, yes... but..." Neco-Arc Chaos gets flustered, not expecting to be so completely interrupted by Neco-Arc without any regard for his explanation.

"Then... what do we need a Carnival Moment for? Wasn't it all your idea to hide from our adoring fan when he came to visit Ahnenerbe?" Neco-Arc is pointing an accusatory... hand, at the tiny cat person. "You're the reason we didn't get to have our big reveal!"

"Un-Un-Un!!" Bubbles agrees with Neco-Arc, and Chaos starts looking worried by the two Neco Spirits

"But... we... needed to keep the integrity of the story..." Neco-Arc Chaos sounds utterly defeated. He had just wanted to keep things flowing smoothly. If Shinji had found them, then the world's serious qualities would have been torn asunder, and a Forever Carnival might've taken place!

"I disagree." A voice from the table behind the bar calls out, and Neco-Arc Destiny joins the conversation. "We had our moment to get involved in things, and we blew it. Now we're stuck in this bar, until Shinji remembers we exist again, an eternity of waiting for actual plot relevance! Isn't it sad?" The drama queen at the table by herself is obviously upset about their lost opportunity to shine.

"Let's all just... enjoy this fleeting carnival, shall we?" Neco-Arc Chaos tries his hardest to get things back on track. "Hmm, what's this? A voting prompt."

"Hey! Don't you tr-"

Kind of a shame that the 1st just so happened to happen just when things were about to get good.

At least you managed to lower your odds of getting Sakura and yourself vored by snakes in the forest by about 95 percent.

An actual Fate/ discussion thread on /a/ that isn't the same 5 topics >>>/a/219357974 while we wait for WhatIs to set up the attractions
>>
>>4721288
Quick, somebody shill the quest there!
I want to dab on the pedoes when they read up to us adopting all the actually underage lolis.
Illya is still fair game though.

Back to actual serious things.
What do you guys think we can except from Manaka's boosted Cu?
Where is Baz, is she dead already?
Will we run into Stheno and Euryale here?
Will we get two new useless mouths to feed?
Will we watch Sakura get vored by snakes again?
>>
>>4721294
I think last time someone shilled the quest we got samefaggotry and WhatIs had to take a break so the autism would die down.

I doubt we'll go through the entirely of Gorgon's wild ride without meeting the park attendants. I wonder if the audience is dumb enough to simp to Stheno or Euryale and die. Shinji should have hard immunity to their charms though due to his mental protections.

I also doubt WhatIs would just kill Bazett offscreen, low payoff there.

I think Cu is potentially an Odin pseudo, or Morrigan/Lugh. His Divinity is specifically higher and he has the crow motif going on. Cu had a crow perch on his shoulder when he was finally confirmed dead, so maybe WhatIs is going for a herc moment where he ascended to godhood on death?

I wouldn't be surprised if God didn't mention anything about chasing Cu because we specifically asked for "long and happy lives for those we care about".

I don't think you can avoid at least some maiming or death against an enhanced, Gae Bolg and Rune Magic spamming Cu.
>>
>>4721294
>What do you guys think we can except from Manaka's boosted Cu?
Spearspam and trying to get himself killed.
>Where is Baz, is she dead already?
I bet she is an assassin.
>Will we run into Stheno and Euryale here?
>Will we get two new useless mouths to feed?
I hope so.
>Will we watch Sakura get vored by snakes again?
No, Sakura will get to watch Shinji getting "eaten" by Medusa.
>>
>>4721297
>Stheno or Euryale
Shinji is the only person who can properly call them out.

Stheno and Euryale are absolutely helpless if you can no sell the simp aura. I wonder how Shinji will deal with this smug creature in the flesh?
>>
>>4721297
>last time someone shilled shit got fucked
Good point.
Maybe not.
>simp to Stheno and Euryale
Only Simper of Imaginary Numbers is retarded enough for that. Shinji is well aware of just how insidious these little she-devils shits are.
>Odin Pseudo
Can't wait for him to start killstealing. But honestly it's probably someone else. Morrigan is associated with Crows, right? Is Cu a tranny right now?
>offscreen Baz
It is Baz, being offscreened is kinda her thing.
We need to abuse Cu's geas.
What is it, he is forced to lose to an ulster born man wielding Caladbolg? Time to grab an irishman.
>>4721301
Hopefully he gives them a huge dressing down for being horrible emotionally abusive siblings who hate humans and are pretty much the sole reason Medusa originally became the Gorgon.
They also constantly drained Medusa of blood because it was tasty or something, to the point Medusa freezes up when a loli leaps at her.
Wow holy shit Jack would DESTROY Medusa wouldn't she?
Then they truly condemned Medusa when they simultaneously developed their vore fetishes and decided they wanted Medusa to eat them when she was the Gorgon.
I am genuinely interested to see how Medusa would react to somebody standing up for her.
>>
>>4721305
Morrigan, Lugh (cu's dad) Cu himself and Odin all feature crows as a thing in their myths.

Have the girls offer cu organdog meat, he can't refuse. I don't think anyone besides Cu and Bazett are Irish. Maybe we could check out a bar and try and find a tourist? Or just have Abby make shota Fergus so Shinji has a son
>>

I am very interested in the prospect of a Forever Carnival and I think we should try for it as soon as we have a chance.
Think about it, an eternity of fun~!
>>
>>4721307
>Shota Fergus
Oh no, the NBR relationships between our children, what are you doing?!
Wasn't Morrigan a Cu husbandofag?
But I mean who wasn't at the time?
Odin would be fun just so we can have Sakura bully him into non-existence.
>>4721308
>>4721310
They don't deserve anything else.
>>4721312
An eternity of pain.
I'd rather not cause the death of logic.

>>4721317
Shota Fergus has good manners.

On the topic though, if BB becomes a real issue we could have Betty create John Smith to deal with her.
>>
>>4721312
Before we conquer Britannia we should go back to Misaki Town and barge into the cafe just to steal all of the neco-arcs. Omai wa subete no watashi da!

>An eternity of pain
I'm surprised we haven't called any of our enemies niggers, or a faggot or a combination of both yet while t-posing. Maybe we're too nice?
>>
>>4721288
There have been some surprisingly decent threads there lately. Guess Sakura really brought everyone together.

>>4721294
I don't think it's Odin. Cu was already a servant. I bet he was twisted into Berserker Cu.
Bazett is either possessed by an Assassin (more likely) or by someone who can no-sell Medea's magic (less likely). No way she's dead.
We are certainly running into Medusa's family soon.
I hope not.
50/50 I'd say.

>>4721297
God also didn't tell us to go after Monica, and we certainly care about her. They are all almost certainly distractions, like Shuten was. Or "God" was full of shit.
I think we can certainly avoid any deaths against him. He wasn't very succesful in the original timeline after all, and the firepower we have access to right now is staggering. We just have to not be dumb about it.

>>4721305
>I am genuinely interested to see how Medusa would react to somebody standing up for her
We'll find out soon enough. That's the whole reason we're here. My guess? 99/100
>>
>>4721324
>My guess? 99/100
She's already willing to have a threesome with us with Sakura if we go for Sakura route. They do everything together, remember?
>>
>>4721326
True, but her heart wouldn't really be in it. She liked us but didn't love us.
>>
>>4721320
We don't have to go to Misaki Town. Fuyuki has an entrance to Ahnenerbe as well.
>>
>>4721270
Senpai I have a suggestion! Can we have a segment where all of the very horny, unfulfilled women and girls in the cast confront the QM about there being no H scenes? Also have Shiki, Shirou and even Ayaka laugh at Shinji for being a virgin because even Ayaka probably had sex with one of the himbos in her otome harem too.

Saber only kept up by her Instinct skill, and had enough mana to work with to undo the mystic eyes for the most part. Her legs were probably still a little petrified. This scene was better than the VN for sure.

My favorite part is:
>Rider: "Whats's the matter, are you worried about Shirou?"

Would it be immoral if we adopted Stheno and Euryale but married Medusa?
>>
>>4721297
I think Cu literally just got amped up, he becomes disgusting if he's summoned in Ireland and gets 2 extra NPs and a blessing while summoned there, there's no reason for him to get fused if an amped up Normal him is already so strong. Also we like Cu and he's on that list too

>>4721353
So our sister-in law is our daughter-in law? How would that work? Would Sakura be their Aunts technically?

Am Gisellefag. She isn't in the story much because we're hauling ass on a time limit this Grail War.

I have a theory that he is indeed a Canadian or a Europoor since he's never stepped foot in redneck heaven, I mean Walmart. Wild Card is that he's Brazillian or a Mexican cause they seem to like Fate a lot too.

You blink. Something isn't quite right. This... This isn't your room. Well, that's not quite true, this is your room, but you certainly shouldn't be in it right now. This house should be in a state of disrepair! Something has clearly happened, and you bound out of bed before you fall flat on your face, your muscles feeling weaker and your body softer than normal. You quickly get up off the floor to look at yourself in the mirror. You look like the sort of person who does the bare minimum he needs to keep his body in shape! Your gains have all vanished! You can still feel all your magic circuits, so at least they haven't changed. You instinctively do all that you can to prevent them from leaking even the slightest bit of magical energy, your blessed circuits still present and allowing you to make them almost completely invisible. Also, interestingly enough, you have three dormant Command Spells on your hand, almost invisible to the naked eye, but you can just about make out the three faded blobs of black ink that made up the original form of your Command Spells.

"Oh. Shit." You quickly realize just what must've happened, and you almost vomit when you realize just what this body you're currently inhabiting has been responsible for. You try to clear your thoughts of such things as you almost get dressed in a school uniform to head downstairs before you check the day and realize that it's actually a Saturday. Hopefully you'll be able to figure out just what is going on as the day progresses. It's pretty clear that you aren't in your own timeline anymore though.

You head downstairs slowly, almost cautiously, yet at the moment you reach the bottom step, you hear a voice, the voice of an old man you were dreading to hear. "Shinji! Come here! It's time you proved your worth to the Matou!" Zouken. Well, at least this variation of the bastard has yet to permanently bond himself to a damn Snake God. You do as your 'grandfather' asks and obediently enter the living room, where Sakura is standing awkwardly, with a blindfolded woman standing protectively in front of her Master "Good. Shinji, Sakura here isn't prepared to fight in the Holy Grail War, so I'm going to have to ask you to take her place." The old man passes you a book. "This book will allow you to control Rider, so long as you spill a drop of your..." You ignite the book in your hand with a flame, and watch it burn up.

"What a shame, it was a good book. Now, Medusa, please be a dear and use your Mystic Eyes on this old worm bastard for me, would you? He's the one behind all of Sakura's suffering, and he doesn't deserve to live, I promise you that on the souls of your sisters. Don't worry, I can save Sakura from any consequences of this." You reassure the two girls, who are both obviously not sure what's even going on anymore.
>>
Medusa looks startled for a moment at your words, and looks to Sakura who nods, a scared and confused expression on her face, not knowing just what it is that you're up to. It really hurts you to see Sakura look at you with those eyes. Rider dematerializes her blindfold.

"What are you talking about, you impudent little br- Zouken stops talking.

"Shut up. This time I'm not going to make any mistakes." You silence Zouken by interrupting him just as Rider silences him by activating her Mystic Eyes on him. You conjure the same flame in your hand that you used to purge Sakura's body of Zouken's influence the first time. "Trust me when I do this please, Sakura, Rider." Without any more warning to the two girls, you send the ball of Truth-made flame directly at Sakura, using it to target only the crest worms within her body, quickly all the familiars of Zouken that were inside of Sakura are completely incinerated. Sakura falls to the ground, unhurt, but clearly affected greatly by your magic.

All the while, Zouken is fast turning into nothing but a statue, incapable of even moving as his body solidifies into gray stone, his face one of pure seething anger even as it permanently settles that way forevermore. Even while this is going on, you don't allow yourself to take satisfaction in the death of the old bastard, and you quickly lean over Sakura and start to use Truth Healing on her, in order to fully fix her up.

"Nii-san?" Is about all that Sakura can even say when you help her up from the floor, and she looks at the statue of Zouken. She's clearly completely bewildered by the ease at which you just dealt with Zouken, under five minutes in total to save Sakura and kill Zouken. Not bad.

"Sorry, Sakura, I'll explain everything to you a little later, but I just realized that I've got a pretty filled out schedule, you wouldn't mind if I borrowed Rider to help me, would you? And... Look, I'm... not the Shinji I was before, I came from a different timeline, and I can only apologize to you for what he did to you." You reinforce your leg and deliver a kick to the Zouken statue, shattering the ugly bastard into hundreds of shards of stone. "And don't come back this time, you asshole!" You yell at the shards before Sakura can even respond to you.

"Uh... I... OK, Nii-san... I... Think it would be better if you went with him for now, Rider." Sakura still doesn't look like she knows what to make of anything about this entire situation.

"Understood, Master." Rider is quick to follow Sakura's commands, and follows you out of the room, leaving Sakura, who has an expression torn between absolute bewilderment and true gratitude on her face. Rider's face is once again covered with Breaker Gorgon, however, or well, at least her eyes are.
>>
"Good, now, Rider, I'm going to need you to take me to the forests of Fuyuki, near the temple." Hopefully you're not too late to stop Caster from contracting with Kuzuki, you're going to need her strength and abilities to win this.

"Very well... Shinji, but... do you have a vehicle available for us to use?" Unfortunately not, however, that can easily be solved. The two of you walk out of the house, and you immediately just walk up to a parked car, break the lock with your magecraft, and get in.

"Come on, you're the Rider here, get in!" The car you steal isn't a super car by any stretch of the imagination, but it will have to do. "Your Riding skill... It's A+ right?" Rider gets in on the drivers side, before she looks at you. You know, driving with a blindfold on might seem like a terrible idea, but

"Correct." Rider keeps her answer short and sweet.

"Excellent, then get going, I'll give you the directions as we travel." You keep your response short too.

It doesn't take a long time to get close to the temple, only about ten minutes in total thanks to Rider's skill at driving, and you're a little bit earlier than when you arrived with Illya. Still, you easily return to the place where you once found Caster, and you don't even need Rider's assistance to locate her. "Master! It's... an enemy Servant!"

"Very observant, Rider. But I'm not your Master, remember?" You keep your voice deadpan as you look at Caster, who is trying to crawl away from you and Rider. "Oi! Caster! Do you want to live? If so, take my hand, and I'll contract with you." The desperate Caster reluctantly takes your hand, before you feel the contract take hold. While you're a little disappointed that you don't have Betty with you, it's just incentive to return to your original world after you've solved this problem grail war, so far it seems like it's far less of a problem than the Grail War you're having to deal with. "OK, next up, Caster! I want you to teleport us to the location I'm sending through to you through our newly established mental link."

"I... Guess?" Even Caster doesn't seem like she knows what to make of you either. She raises her staff into the air, and with a word of power, you vanish to your next destination along with Rider and Caster. "Tροψα!"

You soon find yourself standing in Shirou's living room, the boy himself drops his eating utensils as the three of you teleport in. Taiga is looking similarly stunned at the blatant violation of physics. "Hypnotize the woman please, Caster." It only takes the powerful magus from the Age of Gods a single action to do so, and Taiga falls to the ground before she can even say a word. "Don't worry about Taiga, Shirou, I'm here because I need your help. Rider, please pick Shirou here up."

"Wait a second! Shinji?! Could you at least explain what's going on?" Shirou sounds as bewildered as one might expect somebody being teleport kidnapped would be.
>>
"You're going to help me save the world, Shirou, but first I need you to summon your fiancee." You leave the room, heading out to his special magic shed and beckon for your Servants to follow you. "Rider, Caster, please follow me. Don't hurt Shirou though, he's a dear friend of mine."

"What does that even mean!?" Shirou tries to struggle against Rider. "Answer me, Shinji!" You don't answer him, and instead have Rider carry him all the way out into his shed, where you can see that a magic circle has activated thanks to being in close proximity to a potential Master. You don't know who originally used this house to create this circle, but you suppose it really doesn't matter. "Rider, put Shirou on that magic circle please." The Servant does as you ask her, and there's a bright flash of light as she does.

Standing directly above Shirou and looking down at him, is Saber, who thankfully can at least read the room and understands that there's no ongoing fight occurring, so she doesn't attempt to attack Caster or Rider. "I ask of you, are you my Master?"

"Uh..." Shirou seems completely flustered as he looks at the woman.

"Say 'yes' Shirou. That's how these magical contract things tend to work." You helpfully join in.

"Uhh... Yes?" Shirou takes your advice, and Saber smiles very faintly at him.

"Excellent. I take it that you've already managed to secure an alliance with these two Servants as well?" Saber has her arms crossed as she looks at you, Rider and Caster with wary eyes.

"In a sense, that's correct." You answer for Shirou once again, as the boy clearly has no idea what the hell is even happening anymore. "Though the stakes are a little higher than what you might believe... I'll... tell you everything when we get inside."

After a brief explanation to your three allies of just what is actually going on, and Saber's reluctant acceptance that the Holy Grail might not be in a usable state, your group proceeds to rapidly the issues of the grail war. First you go to Rin with Sakura, give her the full explanation, and tell her to summon her Servant so that she can kill Kotomine for killing Tokiomi ten years ago, and that's about all it takes for her to go ahead and immediately summon Archer, who looks really kind of bothered by things. Next up is Illya, who is much harder to convince, but thankfully, she agrees to at least a temporary alliance with you when you manage to have Caster use some scrying magic to reveal the interior of Fuyuki Church, and the blonde man wearing his ridiculous outfit within it. It takes quite a bit of convincing to actually get her to accept that the man is Gilgamesh. Next up is of course getting Bazett on side, but when most of the grail war shows up on her doorstep to inform her that the grail is corrupt and that it needs to be shut down, she really cant argue against you.
>>
Just like that, everyone is together, and the seventh servant has yet to even be summoned! While you could probably have Caster summon Assassin, it's not really a necessity, Kirei is forced to confess to his crimes against Rin thanks to Caster's magic before Caster gets bored and just incinerates the priest with a single spell.

Then, it comes down to the final confrontation.

Lancer lies dead at Gilgamesh's feet, and you grit your teeth. "You damn mongrels really thought that I was just going to let you run rampant all over my plans?" The King of Heroes has his greatest weapon, Ea, drawn, and is wearing his nearly invincible Golden Armor as well, he's very obviously taking the combined force of the Grail War very seriously. "Let me teach you the error of your ways, you damn dogs!" The segments of Ea begin to spin.

"Oi. Gilgamesh." You call out in a calm voice. "I'd look behind you if I were you."

"Ha! Such a pathetic trick, as expected from a mongrel dog like you!" Looks like Gilgamesh is a massive jerk when he's not got Manaka around to scare some sense into him. Ah well. "Now, prepare yourself! Enu-!"

THUMP!

A massive golden clawed foot smashes down on top of the King of Heroes, crushing him instantly despite the incredible protective power of his Golden Armor. You... did try to warn him. "Good job, Alítheia! You run up to the leg of your Dragon Daughter and give her a hug, even while she's still in her dragon form she's still your adorable daughter! You're a little bit wary of getting too close to the Gilgamesh paste out of personal preference, but it can't be helped. You weren't just going to go after Gilgamesh without a trump card up your sleeve that you were sure would give you the win. Of course, you weren't expecting that Gilgamesh was just going to stand there and take it. What a jobber.

Well, with Gilgamesh, Kirei and Zouken dealt with, all that's left is to go and deal with a grail that cannot possibly act to defend itself! You check your watch for some reason, and realize that it has only been about four hours and twelve minutes since you arrived by waking up. Hmmph.

"Shirou! Shiki! I'm... I'm calling an emergency meeting!" You race up to the two boys, who look at you with curious expressions.

"What's up, Shinji?" Shirou tilts his head in confusion at your panic.

"W-well... It's Valentine's Day today, right?" You confirm with the two of your close allies. You have no idea where SHIKI is, probably stalking somebody as usual.

"Yeah, I've got a nice trip out planned with Saber." Shirou smiles goofily. You can tell he's going to be no help at all!

"Ah yeah, my schedule is pretty full, honestly, I'm spending the first half of the day with Sensei, and the second half with Akiha. Why?" Shiki sounds a little more curious as to why you brought it up, and you proceed to reveal thirteen seperate letters, all of varying design, but they all clearly share a theme. That theme being lovehearts.

Shirou looks at you in continued confusion as Shiki suddenly bursts into uncontrollable laughter and rolls around on the floor. "Ahahahaha! You're totally fucked!"

"Thanks for the encouraging words. I was wondering if the two of you could help me uh... plan out a way to... uh... date all of them at the same time." Come on, if anybody can help you with a problem like this, it's Shiki. He might not have as many girls attached to him just yet, but he's the guy you should talk to when it comes to managing girls like that.

"AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Are you out of your mind?! You're totally screwed! You may as well hide in a box and hope nobody will be able to find you!" While the idea of hiding in Zelretch's chest in Rin's house has occurred to you, and you might've actually taken that as a way to run from your problems. The big problem is that one of the messages is actually from Rin. You aren't exactly inspired with a lot of hope by the fact that even Shiki is laughing at you for getting yourself involved in this madness. "Sure, I'll help you out with this, it'll be a laugh."
>>
About half an hour later, and you're looking at the world's most complex plan. You're pretty sure that most plans to invade nations have fewer steps than this.

(...)
The list goes on like this for about six more hours worth of time. Shiki, upon looking at the completed diagram, began laughing so much that his sides could probably qualify for the Voyager Class Container.
>>
"Oh man, dude. You are so completely screwed. I feel bad for you." Shiki has no sympathy for you, it seems. The damn bastard! He'd be suffering this same problem if not for you!

"Huh? I think that it will work! Shinji can do anything!" Shirou's confidence in you raises your spirits for a few moments until you look at the task laid out before you. Yeah, not even Pioneer of the Stars: EX could deal with this impossibility.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGKAEaXQoEQ

"Huh? Where's that music coming from?" Shiki scratches his head in confusion.

"Outsider! I have come to repay you the great favor you did me!" Gilgamesh's voice has a happy tone to it, as a shining golden portal appears in the center of the room.

"Gilgamesh?!" Shirou jumps back in surprise as the King of Heroes walks through a rippling golden portal, and he traces both Kanshou and Bakuya, ready for a fight.

Gilgamesh doesn't pay any sort of attention to Shirou at all, completely ignoring him and instead focuses on you. "Outsider, I happen to have private ownership of the largest water-based theme park in all of Fuyuki, and indeed, in this whole region of the country!" Yes, you're well aware of that, that's why you never tried to actually buy the place with your own fortune. "Here, I heard your predicament, and decided that seeing as you helped me with a romantic endeavor, I should pay back the favor." The King of Heroes holds out the pass to Waku-Waku Splash. Could... this truly be your salvation?

"Master! It's a Servant summoning confirmed!" Mash yells excitedly, about time, Ritsuka had been having some pretty dreadful luck when it came to summoning Servants recently. Nothing but Black Keys and Mapo Tofu. She really hoped that this new Servant was going to be helpful for clearing the Singularities, she didn't really know how to best use the Five Stars she had, and she kept getting beaten by the bosses. She... has only just managed to get through America... "It's... It's a powerful Servant too! Class... Saver?!" Mash yells out in surprise, and Ritsuka's attention is suddenly locked entirely onto the circle. Saver? She's never heard of a Saver class before!

There's a great explosion of white light, as a man with long blue hair in a suit appears standing in the center of the summoning circle. "Oh? This is what that looks like from the other side, huh?" The blue haired man says something strange before he looks Ritsuka straight in the eyes before yawning. "How droll." The man sounds very displeased about being summoned for some reason, but that doesn't even really make any sense! For a Servant to be summoned, don't they have to actually... well, agree to being summoned?

"Uhm... Welcome to Chaldea, Saver-san! I'm Ritsuka Fujimura, and over there is Mash Kyrielight!" Ritsuka offers the man a hand, a friendly gesture with a smile on her face. "Let's get along and save the world together, alright?" The man frowns as he takes her hand with some hesitation. It's strange that he doesn't exactly seem all that happy about being here.

"Call me Shinji please, Gudako, you don't need to call me by my Servant Class, this isn't a grail war. Oh and we're... not on the Chinese Server, right?" The man asks something very odd, and Ritsuka barely knows how to even respond to his question.

"What exactly are you talking about... Shinji?" Ritsuka can already tell that as far as Servants go, this one... he might just be the most eccentric of all of them. Also, Gudako? What sort of a name is that? It's a very strange nickname.

"Just... give me a second." The man coughs into his hand to clear his throat. "动态网自由门 天安門 天安门 法輪功 李洪志 Free Tibet 六四天安門事件 The Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 天安門大屠殺 The Tiananmen Square Massacre 反右派鬥爭 The Anti-Rightist Struggle 大躍進政策 The Great Leap Forward... Yeah, that ought to do it." After spouting off a bizarre mixture of both English and Chinese words, the man looks smug, before he winks directly at Ritsuka. She can only blink in surprise at the strange outburst. "Alright, now, I guess this is the part where you take me to my new room, or something, so you can hear me say the same 15 voice lines over and over again?" He's still smirking.

"Huh?" Ritsuka still doesn't know what the man is trying to say. She's... fairly certain that he doesn't have Madness Enhancement as a skill, so... why is he acting like this?
>>
"Don't worry about it, it's not meant for you, it's meant for you." He winks again. What a strange strange person. Maybe not Madness Enhancement, but Insanity instead? "Speaking of you, Master, I had really expected you to be a little bit... different. You're not nearly as... uh, rabid, as I was made to believe you would be. Like a lunatic obsessed only with Saint Quartz."

"W-what?!" Ritsuka really can't believe what this new Servant is saying. Why would she be obsessed with Saint Quartz? While it's true that it's the resource that makes the Chaldea summoning systems function, she could hardly call herself obsessed with it.

"Relax, Master. It's a good thing, I assure you." The man looks kind of bored as he says that, like it's not actually a good thing and he's just saying that in some strange attempt to conceal his true emotions on the matter. Did he... want her to act like a rabid lunatic? This Servant just gets stranger by the second.

"Ah! Sasaki! The Savior of France himself! Killed any Dragons today?" The Assassin shies away from the strange blue haired man as he is called out to, clearly uncomfortable with being treated so familiarly by somebody who he doesn't know. This keeps happening as the Master and her newly summoned Servant wander through the halls of the large facility, the man keeps calling out to random Servants, the majority of which don't seem know him at all. She's pretty certain that she sees him blow a kiss towards Medea. Even stranger though, is the fact that the normally romantically unflappable Medea blushes at the display for some reason. Huh?!

"OK, Shinji! We're finally here! This is your room!" Ritsuka opens up the door to the room that has been assigned to Saver, which is quite obviously just a plague with the 'b' in 'Saber' hastily turned to a 'v'. It's clean and plain, most Servants will either be the sort to decorate by themselves, or are simply OK with staying in basic accommodations.

The man sighs as he looks at the room, and runs a hand through his hair. "You know, Gudako... I can't help but feel like there's a... bit of a lack of... well, of the rarer and more powerful Servants around here." The man sounds almost as if he's pitying her. "You... must've rolled a lot of Black Keys, huh?" Somehow... He knows. Unexpectedly, the man puts a hand on the top of her head and lightly ruffles her hair. "What Singularity are you on right now, Master? Or are we up to Lostbelts already?"

"We're... about to go through the Camelot Singularity, but... it's been a real struggle to get to this point. Also... what's a lost belt?" Ritsuka is genuinely worried even by the name 'lostbelt' it doesn't sound like it can be anything good.
>>
"Uhhhh, forget I said 'lostbelt', OK? It's not relevant. But... You aren't very good at this, so I'm going to give you a tip on how to get further!" The man starts talking like a madman again. "Whenever you have a bad turn, or something goes wrong... just restart the game!" He laughs, as if the advice he's giving is something anybody could figure out.

"W-what?"

The man winks again. "Oh you know exactly what I mean. Anyway, give me a few hours to settle in, and I'll show you just what God's chosen savior of Mankind is capable of!" The man boasts, and Ritsuka still has no idea what to make of him, even as she walks away. One thing is for certain, Chaldea is going to be a much more interesting place now that he has arrived.

they're strangers from the POV of everyone involved, also pseudoservants aren't perfect possessions, Ishtar becomes a useless goddess when she possesses Rin and Muramasa has feelings for Saber

>>4721661
I mean the same could be said for a human fully taking over a servant. The human has a heroic spirit's soul trapped inside of their body, the human can do whatever they want while the soul is kind of stuck watching everything with no input. Its fucked for either party who is not in control.

Dialogue (Sitonai): *Teeth grinding*

>>4721667
Strangers yes, but they're still using people as meat-puppets. That's objectionable in itself.

Yes, certainly.

You're a special case. You've only got one soul, and you joined perfectly with Shinji at the time.

EMIYA kind of just goes along with it, the dude literally has RB or some other noble phatasm he could trace that could free the psuedos. I'm surprised he isn't a little bit more pissed about it.

His reaction to Rin being possessed is literally "Haha, unlucky Rin."
His reaction to Taiga being possessed by Jaguar Man is "Somebody is eating a lot of food."
It's kind of a joke.
You'd think of all people, he'd want to save Taiga from being possesed even more than Rin.
He doesn't even have a line about Sitonai.

>>4721707
in sitonai case they are all in control at the same time, this is why she flip flops in refering to herself as illya or sitonai.
in ishtar and eresh case one melted into another.
no idea about muaramasa

Shinji blacked out after Alaya found out about the harem pool party and seethed. She made Shinji go to her inner world for a one on one "mana transfer session" as punishment.

Dialogue (Waver): "Hah! Looks like not even death can free you from work my dear friend."

You don't get it, anon.
A human personality, no matter how strong, will always lose to that of a god's personality.
Rin's personality being 'melted' into something that massively overwhelms her is terrifying.
Sitonai is extreme schizophrenia at best, and is still bad even if you consider that the worst of it.
>>
>>4721710
and that's how Type Earth was born
>>
>>4721720
i dont find it that bad, but i guess it depends of your point of view.
in illya case its not like she was even alive if her memories are correct.
in other words, i dont really care, its better than nothing.

I'd like to see yandere Dark Sakura. If only she could keep her sanity.
It's a cool aesthetic.

>>4721739
She'd eat every girl that looks in our direction. She'd even eat Shirou just in case there's anything gay going on there. THE END.

>>4721739
Its a very damn hot aesthetic.

>>4721739
Peak Magus Sakura has the aesthetic sorta
>>
>>4721739
Just write-in asking Sakura to cosplay.

>>4721747
That's not true!
She'd eat every girl who looked in your direction and every girl tangentially related to them, with the exception of maybe Rider.

>>4721762
TO be fair, that would make the harem problem a lot easier.

>>4721762
So... she is okay with Shiroufags? If that's the case... wow, didn't think Dark Sakura of all people is a fujoshi.

>>4721762
Even Manaka?

She'd also probably decide to keep you inside her forever at some point, so... probably not.

I thought that was a already the plan, except she becomes octo-mom because of Tiamat's fertility boosting her reproductive capabilities. Her boobs and ass would inflate to Tiamat's size too.

Yep. At least she won't have any problem with it, she has two mothers who were also sisters.

And if luck wills it she will not be only wife but also daugtherwife.
And Saber will not only be our father figture but the same time be our brother(actually sister)-in-law. And our wife Morgan will be our mother-in-law as well.

"Oh thank God, please give me that ticket, Gilgamesh." You reach out a hand, half expecting Gilgamesh to grab away your salvation at the last minute, just to be a jerk, but surprisingly, he actually does hand it over. How generous of him! Guess he must be in a good mood today, considering it's Valentines and all. With the ticket in hand, you smirk at Shirou and Shiki. You didn't need Shiki's help after all!

"Enjoy, Outsider! Fuhahahahaha!" Gilgamesh laughs to himself happily as he walks back through the portal. A... very good mood indeed. Well, you aren't one to doubt Gilgamesh's generosity, he's not the type of guy who would give somebody something simply to cause them misfortune. He's much too proud to use his treasury like some cursed magical item store. That's the one thing you can really rely on Gilgamesh for. His pride. He'd never do something like lie to somebody or attempt misdirection or trickery unless he absolutely had to. That's just the sort of guy that he is, at least when he's in a good mood.

"Ha! See this? I'm going on a swimsuit date with a dozen women!" You have a tremendous smirk on your face as you look at the horrifyingly complicated plan written up on white board. "I'm not going to need this anymore! I'm... I'm going to live!" You gleefully walk out of the building with the ticket

"Good luck, Shinji!" Shirou yells out after you, and you think that you can hear Shiki laughing again. God, that guy can act like such an asshole when he wants to be, then again, this is the same guy who thinks that 'threaten rape' is a decent way to get a girl to cooperate with him, so maybe you should've expected something like this from him, especially when it comes to asking him for women advice. Even so he was still your best bet to ask. Honestly, who else could you ask? EMIYA? Ha, fat chance Mr. Miserable would be able to give decent dating advice. SHIKI? You can't even find him half the time. Gilgamesh? He'd probably just tell you to take what you wanted and ask nobody for permission. Cu? His default approach to romance is sexual harassment, definitely not. You suppose you could've asked Alcides? He might've been able to give you some advice, but then again, being reminded of his own relationships might... remind him of his own relationships, and what the gods did to them. He's out too, then. Wow, you... really don't know many people who could give any sort of decent guidance on stuff like this. Waver is definitely a no. Same for Kiritsugu, you don't really think a teddy bear would be able to give you the guidance you're looking for anyway.

You start rapidly texting all the girls, you finally managed to get them all to agree to carry a mobile phone, even Rin. Somehow. Archer had to spend a hell of a long time explaining it to her, and that it didn't contain a miniature demon that was going to try to swallow her soul whenever she used it. Magi are still terrible with technology, and nothing is going to change that. Of course, despite being terrible with tech, there are certain groups of magi that seem to specialize in nothing but tech. You don't know how that's supposed to work, but whatever, it just does, you guess. You don't care.

About an hour later, you finally arrive at the swimming resort, it's an incredible building, and probably cost millions and millions of dollars to actually build. You arrive first, waiting for everyone else to show up as you sit by the side of a pool wearing your swim trunks. While you hadn't... specifically mentioned that you were going to be bringing anyone else along in your texts to all the girls, you didn't mention that you weren't inviting anybody else, right? Yeah... This... This can still work. Just... Just a normal swim date. On Valentine's day. This is the sort of thing that everyone would've ended up crashing anyway if they managed to find about it, and... Damn it! You could've set things up to happen like that!

It doesn't take long for the first arrival to show up, and rather predictably, it's Sakura who shows up first out of everyone, in a white and red swimsuit, and a good five minutes before you mentioned anybody should arrive. Looks like she didn't want to be late. You can respect that. You stand up to greet the girl, and she quickly starts to run over to you. "Hey, Sakura! Le- URK" You don't get to finish your statement as the girl barrels into you, and basically tackles you into the pool.

"Happy Valentine's day, Onii-chan!" The girl wraps you in a tight hug ever as you both fly through the air, before you land in the pool behind you, crashing into the surface of the water. You... weren't expecting her to be this... forceful, you've got to say. Guess she must've just gotten excited. Not more than a few seconds after Sakura has pitched you into pool, you feel a firm but soft hand snake around your shoulders, swiftly pulling you apart from Sakura with incredible force and speed. Who?!

Your eyes adapt to the water, and you can see the confident smile of Mordred as she carries you to the other side of the pool, Sakura's swimming skills are no match for Mordred's, so she leaves her in her dust, or well, bubbles in this case. Mordred's swimming outfit is black and red, and you honestly have no idea when she even arrived! Was she... lurking in the swimming pool?! Then did she arrive before you did?!

Mordred comes up for air with you still in her arms. "Ah, Advisor, I see that you were followed here, being followed by my enemies for a secret rendezvous is no good... You need to be more careful." The girl pouts, and lets you go for just a few moments, but the moment that she does, the current rapidly pulls you away from her with incredible speed! "Oi! Advisor! Where are you going!"

"I don't know?!" You're carried across the huge inside pool by the current, until you bump against the side of the pool, and two fluffy tails wrap around your legs, hoisting you out of the water upside down, allowing you to see Tamamo staring at you with a mischievous smile on her face. Her swimsuit is orange and blue, and it really does accentuate her figure...

"Ah, Husband, we are finally alone, now, I can- Nngh!" Tamamo suddenly seizes up, as if paralyzed by something.

"Don't get carried away, Second Caster!" Medea reveals her presence from behind Tamamo, as if emerging from the shadows as she dismisses a spell of invisibility, she's wearing a blue bikini. "Now, Master, it's about time I took us maybe somewhere a little more private, hmm?" Medea materializes her staff, raises it into the air, and... the staff disappears. As if something with incredible speed has managed to snatch it away.

"You were the one getting carried away, Servant!" Out of nowhere emerges Arcueid in a white swimsuit, spinning around Medea's staff with deft skill. Wait a second, that staff looks... really familiar when Arcueid is holding it. Oh no. "Now, behold the power of Phantasmoon! Disappear, Trofa!" Arcueid butchers the pronunciation of the teleport spell, sending Medea off to places unknown. Wait a minute, she can use High Speed Divine Words!? "Now, it's just me and you, Shi-" Her eyes suddenly widen as she uses the staff in her hands to deflect an attack from an incoming enemy made with a huge red blade. A twin-tailed girl in a red bikini, but strangely, also a cat tail and cat ears.

"Oh? Not bad, Phantasmoon, your skills with that staff are great enough to even deflect the power of the Kaleidosword? Perhaps I underestimated you! to match the parallel universe oscillatory abilities of the Kaleidosword on the first clash!" What the hell.

"Shinji, stay by my side it's an enemy magical girl!" No, you're actually already out of here. You dive back into the relative safety of the pool, and hope that the madness you've willingly thrown yourself into can't reach you there. Though as you dive at the bottom of the pool, your eyes widen immediately when you see the threat hiding in the depths. A girl with two horns and a hungry expression swimming directly towards you. Oh no. You can't out-swim Shuten! Wait, do you even really want to? As you ponder that question, a large rune appears underneath the oni, and blows her high into the air and out of the pool, to land somewhere else in the large building.

"Wakame-kun, you're in quite a mess today, aren't you?" T-Touko?! And she's... even wearing a swimsuit?! It's actually quite a bit frillier than you thought she'd have a preference for. You guess that everyone has their own hidden preferences, huh? "Don't worry though, I'll make sure to protect you from all these women trying to take advantage of you." Touko holds you close to herself, wait a minute!? Aren't you one of those people, Shishou?!

"Now, Giselle!" Suddenly a white haired woman wearing a dark purple swimsuit bursts from the water and forcible grapples you, putting you in a princess-carry before Touko can even react properly. "Yes! Direct hit! Massive success!" Illya is cheering Giselle on from the sidelines. "Now Giselle, bring him to me!" You can see the girl wearing her pink swimsuit getting further and further away. "G-Giselle!? That's an order!" The homunculus girl ignores her as she runs through the swimming center with you in her arms, at this point, you've realized that struggling is pointless, and are just going with the flow, so to speak. Almost limp in Giselle's arms.

Then you hear the jangling of chains, and you predict what's about to happen as you feel the cold metal suddenly wrap around you, and hoist you out of Giselle's arms and into the air, Medusa reveals herself to you, and this is the second time that a girl has dangled you upside down in front of her today. She softly caresses the side of your face with one hand, before suddenly, something flashes past you, cutting the chain holding you and catching you in a gentle hold. Swiftly setting you down on the floor, is Satsuki, who beams a smile at you as you stare at her in bewilderment. Well, at least she's not trying to carry you off anywhere. You have a moment to catch your breath and appreciate Satsuki's cute yellow swimsuit before a blue blur comes out of nowhere, and a fully reinforced Ciel wearing a black swimsuit grabs you and forces you to rejoin this madness of being passed from one woman to the next, yet snatched away before you even do so much as maybe kiss one of the girls.

This process continues for hours and hours, your pain doesn't end for almost seven hours, as you basically get to experience the unique experience of beach volleyball, except you're both the ball and the grand prize. The day finally ends with everyone getting bored and going home, leaving you laying battered and broken on the floor of the swimming center, with each any every one of the girls standing over you, smiling.

"Please no more." You plead with the women looming over you, begging them for their mercy. With any luck one of them will take pity on you.

"Oh, don't worry, after all that fighting, we actually came to an agreement." Sakura has a smile on her face.

"You... did?" Sakura doesn't respond to you, and the girls looming over you instead just get closer. "Wait, wait... what are you doing?!" The women actually start to smother you. "Wait... Wait! Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!"

Magnifique, Shinji's pelvis was no longer the same after that day

just need someone to throw under the bus for the worst case scenario. I choose to believe that this was a GOOD END however

>>4722003
maids are still there too
>>
>>4721976
All the girls drain Shinji’s magical energy reserves ;)

.....so much so that it goes negative. He’s out for pretty much a whole day. Though on the bright side he’s now dealt with the Shinjibowl....though he was the loser of said bowl in the end.

>>4722011
>>4722006
he can no longer be a bride

>>4722013
Yeah....

Heh, great stuff. I wonder if Alaya was watching the whole thing happen. Will there be moar?

You seriously count this as LOSING?

Shinji still has a human body for now

>>4721976
Everyone got sucked into Sakura's belly and got equally as smothered by dick tentacles. GOOD END

Only missing a cutaway of the guys sitting around a table while Karna grills with his eyebeams watching this absolute mess unfold.
>>
My main take away from this is that Sakura is the main heroine
>>
>>4722022
Yeah thats why its counted as a loss. Were Shinji ~~not human~~ a eroge protagonist. This would be a win, and he would probably be way less drained.

"Betty, Abby, I'm going to need the two of you to head to the store together real quick. I need the two of you to get me the ingredients to bake a cake, do you think you can do that?" It isn't often that Father gives either Abby or myself an errand to go on, and... the ingredients to buy a cake? Ha! That's simple! You just need... Eggs... Sugar... Water... and Flour, right? Or... did you need butter and milk too? Oh! And chocolate too! And Maple Syrup! "Girls... Here's a list, just get everything on this list, alright?" Father's voice is always so kind. You're really glad you managed to meet him. There's not one person you trust more than him. He'll go up against the universe itself for you, he proved that to you. You smile at him, and he smiles back. "Here's twenty thousand yen." He hands you a note of money too, which you quickly put in a pocket.

"OK, father!" You look at the list he gave you. His neat handwriting is very clear, and you try to commit everything on the list to memory.

One pack butter - unsalted
One pack caster sugar
Carton of eggs
One pack self-raising flour
Tub of baking powder
Bottle of vanilla extract.


Ha! Simple! "Come on Abby, Let's go!" You're feeling especially confident about this, you're going to make him proud of you! And... Abby too, of course. It's strange, despite her being the older one, Abby was... never the smarter of the two of you, even with a difference of years. Honestly though, it seems like being summoned as a Servant has at least in some small way increased your mental abilities, if you had to wager a guess, you'd say it was probably all the information that was given to you when you were summoned. That was worth more than a formal education could ever give somebody, honestly. Still, despite this reserve of knowledge you hold, you don't really think you're all that much more intelligent than an average thirteen year old.

You take your cousin by the hand as you lead her out of the house, and out of Father's mansion. He's really a very rich man, Father. You don't really like to ask him for much though, even though you sometimes see things you really want, you don't want to be a burden on him. After all, he was nice enough to adopt you and Abby, so you really don't want to burden him any more than you already are. You briefly consider going to find Alítheia to see if she wants to come too, but the mansion is really big, and it would take too long if she wasn't playing outside already... Oh well.

You skip out of the gates to the roads outside the mansion alongside Abby, who has been quieter than she usually is recently. She's probably just still adapting to modern life, but that's fine. You'll be by your cousin's side no matter how long it takes her to properly adapt to this strange new modern world.
>>
You end up walking through the streets of Fuyuki with Abby, and around halfway to the shop, a car pulls up and stops by your side, and a man winds his window down. "Excuse me, girls but... do you know where your parents are?" The man is wearing sunglasses, and he looks shady. You don't like him.

"Oh, Father sent me and my cousin to go and buy some groceries for him!" You explain to the man. "Oh, but we don't need help, so please leave us alone." You then tell him to leave you alone, just like Father taught you! He's going to be so proud of you when you tell him that you remembered his lesson!

"Look, I can't just leave two pretty little girls like you two just walking around, I'm sorry but I'm going to have to insi-" The man suddenly chokes on his own words. You activate your Mystic Eyes on the man, just like Father told you! When somebody tries to take you away after you tell him to leave you alone, use your eyes on him to get rid of him! "W-wha-" The man chokes out his last sound as the car he's driving compresses around him at the same time he does, and the entire car is rapidly compressed into a dense basketball-sized object, oozing with red liquid.

"I... Is he going to be OK, Betty?" Abby looks at the shiny red metal orb. Clearly shocked at the amount of force you just brought about on the otherwise normal man. But it's OK. Father said scum doesn't get to live, and that anyone like that is scum and not human, and he's always right!

"I doubt it, Abby. Don't worry, Father told me that people like him were nameless irrelevant scum, and that I should feel better about myself if I ever did something like that!" You beam a smile at your cousin, and she gives a weak smile in response to your own.

"I... Guess that sounds right." Abby doesn't argue, she must understand that you're right. Your cousin is clearly just a little bit disturbed about what she just saw, but you haven't the faintest idea why. It's not like you just killed a human. So there's not a problem, right? Killing people is wrong.

Then a dreadful realization comes over you "Oh no! I dropped the list!" Oh no! What did Father want you to get him? You rack your brain trying to remember. Come on, Betty! What did Father want you to get!?
>>
Some time later, Betty and Abby finally return, Betty is proudly carrying a bag. Of course, you didn't actually need them to get the ingredients on the list that you gave them, you were just testing the girls when it came to how much they had managed to adapt to the modern world.

"Father!" The two girls speak in unison.

"We got... what you wanted!" There's a brief pause as Betty takes a step forwards to set the items on a counter. And you quickly begin to go through the bag. One bag of self-raising flour. A carton of eggs. A pack of caster sugar... Another carton of eggs. Chocolate, and a bottle of cola. Eh, it's better than you were expecting. They must've lost the list.

"Good job, girls!" You pat both of the girls on the head. "This is exactly what I needed!" Honestly, something you feel like you might spoil the girls too much. Ah well. You sweep the two of them into a brief hug. You're glad they are still both such innocent girls.

Aww, she's so smol and cute.

But she'd better start helping out her sisters.

I had just started writing for Phantasmoon, but then I noticed than Shinji's worst day took over.
I'll try to do them both.

>>4722126
Shinji needs to call someone, preferrably an enemy a nigger or a faggot or a combination of both. Then when the enemy is mad at losing we tell them, seethe or dilate or both. Paradox Shinji should have some more 4chan anon dialogues.
>>
>>4722128
I very much appreciated the winnie the poo moment. But it's probably best when used sparingly.

When someone is seething in the future about "how did you x my unbeatable y" just hit em with the sneed explanation or a seethe, cope, dilate trifecta.

Nah that’s just Chan faggotry, if we meme all the time it’s just flat and boring

When the forces of envy and grumpiness encroach upon the land, and there is none to save the masses from the grip of demons who also happen to be the worst girl, a great shining beacon of light will appear to save them! Phantasmoon! The Magical Girl of Justice!

"Come on, Shiki! We're going to be late!" Ever since that fateful day where the unsuspecting Shiki Tohno walked in on her transforming into Phantasmoon, he's been forced to follow along with her to aid her in her battle against the evil forces of the demon Akiha!

"...Yes, Arcueid." Of course, this normally just means that she forces the poor man to carry around all her shopping for her, the life of Shiki Tohno is a hard one, but it could probably always get worse. At least Phantasmoon doesn't force him to help her face the monsters summoned up by the Demon Queen Akiha... anymore.

Suddenly an explosion rocks the city to it's core! "W-what was that?!" Arcueid manages to speak after recovering from the shock of the explosion, and she nearly leaps back in shock when she sees it! "It's... A giant demon woman!" Well, more like a girl. With a figure that looks like it should be diminutive, but at the same time towering over skyscrapers, is this humongous oni.

"Yes! That's right, puny humans! Flee before the might of the great Shuten-dōji!" The giant demon laughs. "Now, tremble as I turn your entire town into nothing but a nutrient dense smoothie!" The girl grabs her deadly gourd. She... she wouldn't actually try to melt the entire town, right?!

Arcueid gasps. "Oh no! Shuten-dōji! The famous lieutenant of the Demon Goddess Akiha! Quick, Len!" She takes the gourd and begins pouring it into a dish, but at the same time, Arcueid begins her transformation, into the invincible Phantasmoon!

"Phantasmoon!" She yells out the activation word for her transformation, but before she can even finish her transformation, somebody tries to steal the show! A laserbeam from above knocks the dish out of the giant monster girl's hand. She finishes her transformation in an annoyed silence.

"Kaleido-Ruby is on the scene and...! A girl with twin tails, cat ears and a red dress floats down from the sky, to confront the monster, and behind her is another pretty looking girl with a similar getup, early her outfit is purple, and her hair is wavy and blue.

"...So is her... faithful sidekick... Kaleido-Amethyst...-chan." The girl next to Kaleido-Ruby is obviously the prettier girl, so Phantasmoon isn't exactly sure why she has any confidence issues at all. Maybe that's just her character? To be the super shy, super pretty girl?

"See, now you're getting it, Amethyst-chan!" Ruby gives Amethyst a thumbs up, and the girl seems to cringe in embarrassment for some reason. There's no reason to be embarrassed, that entrance was amazing! It's actually almost stolen the thunder from the true main character of the show!
>>
Not wanting to be outdone by the two new arrivals, Phantasmoon speaks out. "Hey, you two, don't you know that you're on my turf? I thought I made this clear to you the last time that me met, Kaleido-Ruby." She has her arms at her sides as she scolds the two girls currently breaking magical girl etiquette.

"Sorry, but this demon attacked my territory first, so we've chased it all the way here! Our attacks alone won't be enough to phase it, watch!" She fires a small beam of powerful concentrated light at the oni, which doesn't even flinch from the attack! "We're going to need to go for a combined attack if we want to stop this thing from destroying the entire city!"

"Ha! I don't need any help from inferior magical girls like you! Check this out!" She starts posing as she prepares her ultimate technique! "Magic Circuit Fullcount!" She spins her wand around in her hands with great skill as she provides it with the power it will need for her signature attack. "Marble Phantasm!" She sends out a loveheart shaped projectile directly at her enemy, who doesn't even flinch despite taking it to her head! "But... Why?!"

"Weren't you listening to me, airhead? I told you that the only way to defeat this thing is if we pile our strengths together to create a super-attack!" Now, let's hit it with a combined magical beam!" The three magical girls follow Ruby's instructions, firing out beams of pure energy at the Oni to force it back. "Now, Amethyst! Use your Truth Beam!" The blue haired girl complies with the twin-tailed girl's wishes, and her energy beam becomes much thicker, as well as golden, and it starts to burn through the powerful oni, until finally, it pierces all the way through, destroying the Evil Heart Core that was being used to power the transformation! The magical girls all in unison look to see the tiny Shuten-dōji who was piloting the giant city destroying oni giantess. They should probably apprehend her, but none of them can be bothered. That sounds like boring police work.

"Wow! Kaleido-Amethyst! You're really impressive! Are you sure you want to stay as Kaleido-Ruby's magical girl apprentice? I'm sure that I could you much more about how to be a Magical Girl than this Second Rate ever could!" Phantasmoon gives the shy looking girl a happy thumbs up, but this just seems to make her even more nervy. What a truly strange girl this Amethyst is...

"What the hell did you just say?! You don't understand the first thing about magical girls! Hell you wouldn't even know how to cast a magic spell if it weren't for that wand of yours!" Kaleido-Ruby and Phantasmoon have quite a bit of history built up over the years, one stolen monster kill too many.
>>
"Oh yeah?! I don't need this wand to kick your ass, Miss Kaleido-Ruby!" Phantasmoon threatens her opposition in a somewhat typical manner, of course, her opponent doesn't back down despite her great intimidating presence.

"Oh, you wanna go?! I'm ready to go with you whenever you feel like getting your ass kicked! You're not a threat to me!" Kaleido-Amethyst just sits down, and watches the bickering women with interest. It's the first time the girl has shown any sort of real emotion other than embarrassment. What a strange magical girl she must be. The city is saved from the threat of the Demon Akiha, but who will save it from the threat of its own magical girls?
>>
And the final story of the night...

You wake up in bed, and quickly move to get dressed and... What the fuck is this? This isn't your room! Were you kidnapped? No... No, there wouldn't be a kidnapper with access to rooms this nice, not to mention there's no presence of any guards. Still, you suppose that you had probably best find out just what's going on. You aren't ruling out kidnapping though, it could've been a magus, trying to use you to unlock the secrets of the Matou.

You find some clothes that fit you and put them on. Man, at least whoever put you here has some decent taste in clothing. You walk out of the room, and immediately come face to face with Sakura, who surprises you with a hug?! "Gah! Sakura, what the f- Don't sneak up on me like that?!"

"Huh?! But... Onii-chan... I do this to you most days..." She does?! What?! No she doesn't! Also, Onii-chan?! What the hell kind of a fever dream is this?! You need to get out of this place, fast! You start to run down the stairs, only to run straight into somebody.

"Master? You seem to be in hurry, is there something wrong?" The beautiful blue haired woman stares at you with inquisitive eyes, as if she's trying to look into your very soul to figure out what's going on with you. At least the woman is polite though, referring to you as Master.

"Oh no, there's nothing wrong... uh..." You don't know her name! "Uhm... servant...?" You take a shot in the dark, and the woman frowns at you when you call her that, but doesn't take any more issue with i, and lets you pass her. Come on... Where's the door out of this place?! Finally, you manage to locate the lobby of this frankly too large house, and you start to race towards the way out, before a tugging at your sleeve stops you in your tracks. The grip is like you're being held in a vice! You turn around to see a little girl, staring up at you.

"Father...? Didn't you say you were going to cook breakfast for me and Abby today?" The little girl has a small smile on her face, yet with that inhuman grip strength of hers, there's no way that the little girl is a human!

>[X] "No way!"
>[]"Uh, of course!"

"No way! Now let me go you little brat!" The world seems to freeze around you, time slowing to a crawl as the girl looks at you with an expression that can only be called pure betrayal. You don't even know the girl, and you have to admit that her face right now makes you feel bad.

"You... You're not Father at all! You're just some monster wearing his skin!" The girl's betrayed expression shifts from one of realization, until it settles onto one of pure hatred, as her eyes start to sparkle with power. "I'll make you disappear!"

"Wait, wha-" You don't get to finish your sentence as a mysterious force suddenly takes hold on your and turns you into a ball of fleshy gore.

DEAD END
>>
You wake up again, and you somehow have memories of how you just died! Excellent, you... You'll be able to use these to your advantage! You head out of the room that is apparently yours after getting dressed, and you allow Sakura to hug you. You don't even get mad at the girl, or at least, you hide your anger at her so freely touching you. You soon break off from the hug and start to walk downstairs, until you wander into that blue haired woman again.

"Good morning, servant!" You try to preempt her so she doesn't try to talk to you as she walks past.

"Pardon? Master... Are you feeling OK?" The blue haired woman is clearly confused at your decision to address her as 'servant' did you do something wrong?

>[X] "Don't be stupid, I'm fine!"
>[] "Maybe a little, thanks for worrying."

"Don't be stupid, servant. I'm absolutely fine! I don't recall ever asking you to worry about me." As you utter those words, thick purple chains suddenly wrap around your arms and legs. "H-hey?! What the hell is this?!"

"Before, I was suspicious of your different magical aura, but now I'm sure. You're not my Master, but you've stolen his body..." The woman has hateful eyes as she glares directly at you. "I won't kill your body, but your soul...?" You can suddenly feel a strange sensation working up your throat, before a pink gaseous substance spills forth from your lips, and you can't even talk. "Your soul is something I don't need." You watch in horror as the substance that was your soul is absorbed into the cloak of the woman, and you feel the world around you growing darker and darker until finally a void claims you.

DEAD END
>>
(...)
The fist of the blonde girl slams into the side of your head, stunning you completely! Come on, you hadn't even said anything yet! You don't get to even get a word in as a second punch explodes your head. Was she really that suspicious of you from the start?! How is that fair?!

DEAD END
(...)
The harmless looking brunette girl suddenly latches onto your throat! She's... way too strong! You try to push her off, but the apparent vampire quickly drains your body down to the last drop of blood. "Shinji-kun? Did I... go too far?" The girl asks your body, just as it collapses into dust. You can't hear her anguished scream.

DEAD END
(...)
"Liar, fake, fraud! Give me back my Onii-chan!" You're slowly drawn inside the portal leading to a great unknown by Sakura's ribbons, and despite every attempt at convincing her to let you go, and that you made an honest mistake, the girl quickly finishes consuming you through the strange portal, and you soon find yourself in a strange world. In fact, it's a world so strange that you turn to formless magical energy which is absorbed into immediately the moment your feet touch the ground.
DEAD END

It never once occurred to Shinji, through hundreds of thousands of dead ends, to simply ask any of the girls to help him get back to his rightful world.

Inferior Shinji of course

Nice, vore end. Inferior Shinji is inferior.

This is completely deserved

>>4722202
>Wakes up

>Gets mad
Shinji you fucking fuck.

Damn, Mordred's instincts really are sharp.

Damn, poor Satsuki. How did you not figure out the inferior copy?

Damn, the women around us are scary.
>>
>>4722221
>Damn, Mordred's instincts really are sharp.
I thought that was Arcueid?
>>
It's pretty funny how we can speedrun FSN but Shinji never thought to ask anyone to help him

>>4722221
Shinji is a retard and all the women around us are extremely dangerous, I defer you to the pool date
>>
>>4722226
This blonde woman left intentionally vague

>>4722221
Even if Satsuki had figured things out, she would've been heartbroken about things anyway.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the Carnival Moment. We'll return to our regular scheduled updates tomorrow!
>>
>>4722003
As for the other option, I might start a thing where we have a Carnival Thread once a month, if that would be of interest to you guys.
>>
>>4722236
Yeah this was based it would be a fun monthly event
>>
>>4722236
Oh, and I'll still need to write a quick closer post to wrap-up this Carnival, but I'll do that tomorrow.
It shouldn't take long.
>>
>>4722236
I loved this and I definitely want more, but once a month might be too often. How many good ideas can there be?
>>
>>4722236
Based. I’d absolutely want this.

Now then suggestion for next timr:

SHINJI GETS STUCK IN AN OTOME GAME.

Pic related
>>
>>4722243
Why wouldn't we use the actual otome protagonist that we sold for a water park ticket?
>>
>>4722243
Sure, just put your suggestions in the thread everyone, I'll save them all for next time.
I had a blast writing all this today.

>>4722236
Yes we need moar Carnival!

As for future options, maybe Nyarly/Aife/BB day in the life?

Oni/Vampire night out

The male + kids sidestory to the waterpark episode.

>>4722256
These are good. $th war is probably one of the more serious what ifs though.

I reckon the Carvival might be a good place for oneshots through sideplots like the 4th war etc that can actually be briefly played through without taking the main story off the rails. Then you've got reason to hold them monthly and they might recharge you during any periods of writer's block too.

Here's a poll for best character, I disabled all the location tracking garbage too so don't worry about that.
Unless there's some major reason this site is shit and I shouldn't be using it.
I couldn't use strawpoll because it's too limited, and I ran out of space to add characters. Also this site enables you to use Other to add any characters I could have missed.
Now I think I got everyone, but there are a lot of characters.

I still think we should adopt Stheno and Euryale but marry their younger sister.

>>
>>4722719
Adopt, Truth age them up or both? We should have Morgan grant Medusa either Ibaraki or Tamamo's Shapeshift ability so she can freely swap between small, medium and large while her sisters are stuck on large.

Hopefully Alcides doesn't want to smash Euryale and Stheno's skulls in on sight.
>>
>>4722726
Ok how about this.
We make it so every time they do something mean to Medusa, they age up a year, and every time they do something really nice for Medusa they age down a year.
But obviously not going below their original age.

>>
>>4722734
Smug Goddesses, meet Pavlov's Dog.
I wonder if Stheno and Euryale would get stronger if they were aged up like Medusa does?

Also we need to start working on a group of trustworthy maids. Other than the Einzbern Maids who should all love us if we figure out the lifespan problem.
We should've made ourselves a bunch of Trimmau.
Kind of want to steal Salter to use as a maid. It's a guilt free solution!
Not like we'd lock her in the rape dungeon for a few days while unaltered Saber calls us a faggot constantly like Cuckberich did.

Also I remembered the rematch with Saber.
>Instinct A
>Sweets makes her literally run straight into a trapped room instead of mana bursting the room into oblivion
Never forget that shitty rematch.
Then Jobberich got beaten up by a human magus just like Jobhime did.
Sweets also didn't know the only reason Servants were powerless against Imaginary Numbers in HF was because they were empowered by the grail itself, so nothing summoned by the grail could resist them.
>>
>>4722733
They might make really good Orochi bait due to Divine + princesses. Orochi was never really shown to have any kind of mental resistance so they might be able to charm him too. The Gorgon sisters are technically Titans not Gods, so maybe his Nega-Deity skill won't work?

Also Stheno has A+ Presence Concealment which would be incredible if Hero Makered onto someone with actual combat ability. Older Stheno might be a genuinely terrifying Assassin as she has absurd stealth and a near unmatched Charm.

Her NP Flavour text is very, interesting. Orochi and Zolgen are very much male so...

>The very allure of the goddess which could enslave any warrior with a single blow, sublimated as a Noble Phantasm.
>Regardless of whether one were a hardened brave or an incorruptible gentleman, as long as it is a man, he would be slayed (metaphorically) by Stheno. It is the most powerful of whispers, filled with expressions of love. Her faint melancholic gaze turning to blades, her mellifluous voice dripping with poison. And after that comes the killing blow - as though dropping all pretenses, she strikes an adorable pose. Making a heart symbol with her fingers - a perfect finish!

>Most men would fall to such an attack, though in the event one did not, she would become very cross (but do little else).

Euryale also has A+ Independent Action which could be Hero Makered onto servants to keep them around indefinitely if incarnating is a very difficult process.
>>
>>4722742
And Eye of the Euryale has very interesting flavour text too. I know they're not meant to have Noble Phantasms as they're not even meant to be servants but if they do happen to appear in a class container..

>It is the charm of the goddess, that captivated braves with a single attack, made form as a Noble Phantasm.

>The bow, her bewitching charm; the arrowheads, her sweet, sweet whispers. An arrow that will pierce the heart of any male, be they a human or a god. The external appearance is extremely sublime, and also cute. It is a golden bow patterned with multiple heart shapes.

>"Isn't that Cupid's..." is what her little sister started to say before meeting a terrible fate.
>>
>>4722742
Charming Orochi is just going to get her eaten.
Let's not get them eaten by ANOTHER snake monster please.
>>
>>4722745
They're used to it at least.

If Euryale can yeet her arrow across the map by borrowing Karna's Clairvoyance it might have an effect, it does specifically say it can pierce the heart of any human or god.
>>
>>4722747
>She marries Orochi in our grandpa's body

Not to mention he's anti-god anyway, and cheating with "oh but they are titans!" won't fly.

I'm sure the greekoids would be very upset if you claimed gods = titans.

This isn't trying to destroy his heart either, it's to have him become Euryale's simp.
>>
>>4722738
>Cuckberich
Tbh he got laid using Pedo's Charisma skill.
>>
>>4722752
There was less of a difference than you might think. The Titans were simply the collective name for the previous pantheon in mythology, and they were related to the 12 gods. Zeus, Hades and Poseidon were children of Cronus, the leader of the Titans. If one's a god, the other is too.
>>
But assuming Gorgon is stuck that way, or can turn into it at will she'd be great in a snake Kaiju-off against Orochi, as she has essentially no Divinity left and she can keep him pinned with her body while blasting him with a point blank Cybele. I wouldn't risk trying to eat him with Pandemonium Cetus and she may end up possessed.

>>4722756
Ye ik, they're kind of like the tier above the Gods as they're a full order of Mystery higher, predating and birthing them.
>>
>>4722754
Yeah, with worst girl illyaclone in a scene so uncomfortable he was given a skill to forever label him a pedophile.
I wonder how long it would take Betty to SPHERE him if he met her.
Meanwhile Shinji just fucked his entire harem at a pool party.
Or rather he got fucked.
Alberich probably kept Yumigawa's microdick, which is why he only goes after lolis.
>>4722752
They have divine cores. Let's not try to rules lawyer the Nega-skill.

>>4722759
>I wonder how long it would take Betty to SPHERE him if he met her.
A few seconds, she's a good girl.

And now I want to see Alitheia SPLAT a discord mod. And we should teach Abby to send them somewhere unpleasant, she can't always rely on her sisters for protection.
>>
>>4722759
So that's a no to the borrowed Clairvoyance across map simp arrow plan too then?

What about snake kaiju battles?

>>4722760
Abby could make a fresh jannie dimension to send them all, then we can use them for any kind of magical experimentation we want to try that we wouldn't ethically wish to use a regular NPC for.
>>
>>4722761
I'm up for a snake kaiju battle, but it's a lower priority than giving her her old body back. So, IF she can freely change between forms only.

And I approve of the "Have Abby send them to hell" plan.
>>
>>4722761
I genuinely doubt she can make a force of pure destruction simp for her.
Kaiju battle might work in our favor if we can get Medusa in control of Gorgon.
>>4722760
I can almost imagine Alberich meeting one of our daughters.
The stupid bastard would really get what he deserves.
>>
Just realized.
Seeing as Sakura has Tiamat in her stomach, shouldn't that mean she has access to Potnia Theron?
In addition to Imaginary Numbers?
Shouldn't she be able to use C.C.C. (Cursed Cutting Crater)?
>>
Also, we should make plans to steal Servants away from Orochi mid-battle. We can't take more ourselves, so we should speak to the other magi in our group to see who wants to be a Master, announce at the start of the battle that we have no animosity towards the Servants and we'll be good to anyone who joins, and then start applying Rule Breakers liberally.
>>
>>4722766
Imagine the look on BB's face if she saw that.
>>
>>4722766
She'd have to start unsealing Tiamat to do so, and C.C.C is very moon-celly in concept. But she could do similar, potentially stronger too as she can nullify first to prevent resistance before breaking down and rewriting the reality inside the core of the attack. She could also drown them in a localised chaos tide and just Amino Geas them to be hers to control on a subcellular level.
>>
>>4722767
Still yet to see if you can just fire Rule Breaker arrows and still have the same effect as a nothin personell jab. Would make it much easier
>>
>>4722768

>>
>>4722771
This is a problem only because we've been relying on Medea, the physically weakest of our allies. EMIYA and Shirou will find it much easier to just stab people with them.
>>
>>4722772
Violet could hypothetically Kin Eater all of them to become the strongest
>>
>>4722774
I mean Kazuradrop
>>
>>4722774
>>4722775
I think the same goes for our Sakura so it would probably be an Eat or be Eaten battle against Kazura while all the rest rapidly get vored for use as powerups.
>>
>>4722759
Do not forget he also wanted to be loli himself.
>>
>>4722777
Well technically Melt can power up by melting and absorbing the others and Violet can assimilate things into herself too.
Violet is a useless jobbing fuck despite having Za Warudo though.
>>
>>4722777
Also by the way hosts work for Divine pseudos because Sakura hosted Parvati, she's also over a dozen other higher end poojeet gods like Durga, Kali and Shakti. She's basically several pantheons at that point. That's a lot of vore.
>>
>>4722772
So the ultimate answer is a hell of a lot of universal scale autocannibalism and vorechads win overall.
>>
>>4722778
His *ideal form* was in truth a loli and he was both a homunculus by any other name and kissed lolis a lot.

>>4722784
Cmon. Kuro is not a jobber.
>>
>>4722795
Actually speaking of Kiara, we should probably find her, heal her and adopt her.
Give her something to prevent demon slut goddess Extra Kiara from eating her mind and turning her into a puppet.
It's horrible what happened to FGO Kiara. She got egodeath'd when by all accounts she was actually a good girl who never joined a cult and was a healer.
Nobody in Chaldea cares about this either. Even though she was literally an employee.
Fuck them.
>>
>>4722801
Not sure how the timeline lines up regarding adoption, but yes we should absolutely save her. Thank fuck Arcueid destroyed Chaldea in our timeline.
>>
>>4722738
You do know how you defeat somebody with limited battle precognition don't you?
You make sure your attack is either undodgeable or remains undetected longer than they can see into the future.
Imaginary Numbers is simply very effective against spirits, even the wiki states this, it has nothing to do with Sakura being influenced by Angra to super-power her element or something like that.
>>
>>4722831
Fuck off Sweets.
>>
>>4722831
>it has nothing to do with Sakura being influenced by Angra to super-power her element or something like that.
Except thats literally the only reason Sakura and the Shadow were so powerful against servants, you hack.
Also, that's still not how Instinct works.
It's supreme instincts to the point of future-sight to the point the user can take the best action in a battle.
It's why Mordred at Rank B instinct can fend off a suprise attack from Jack even in the Fog.
It's not "HURRRRRR ME RUN INTO TRAP." you subhuman baboon.
>>
>>4722834
I don't think that fight ended unreasonably either, am I Sweets too?
>>
>>4722841
It's also the only reason she was capable of killing Gil, due to exploiting this anti-servant quality she had due to being linked to the grail.
WHO WAS INCARNATED AND NOT A SPIRIT BY THE WAY.
>>
>>4722845
Imaginary Numbers is effective against spirits because it drains energy, which servant bodies are made of.
>>
>>4722849
Speaking of draining energy, whatever happened to that piece of meteorite Touko had given us to hide our magic from Zouken?
>>
>>4722841
>>4722845
Yeah, taking the best course in a battle, but if there's no fight in the room the skill can't activate.
Are you going to say Saber shouldn't have gotten blacked in HF because she should've realized there would be mud right under her due to instinct?
And imaginary numbers specifically targets spirits, but if used with different elements it can effect living people too.
Sakura got gilgamesh with a combo of Angras curses and imaginary numbers.

Good morning, everyone.

>>4722851
>Are you going to say Saber shouldn't have gotten blacked in HF because she should've realized there would be mud right under her due to instinct?
Here's my opinion on that scene.
In HF, she only got captured because she was fending off the attacks of True Assassin and was obviously just a little distracted at the time to respond even if her Instincts were screaming at her to move.
Even still, the text itself reads.
>The "ominous presence" she has been feeling has covered the ground beneath her.
So despite being in the middle of an intense battle with True Assassin, her Instinct was clearly still in play and trying to warn her about the grail mud coming for her she just couldn't do anything about it.
Now, if you're trying to say that this same character would leap into a room, after these events have happened to her once before, I'm going to have to strongly disagree.
>but if there's no fight in the room the skill can't activate.
What on Earth sort of take away from Instinct is this?
This would mean it is useless against surprise attacks, which it isn't, so this is just completely wrong.

>And imaginary numbers specifically targets spirits
Imaginary Numbers are rare, but not unique to Sakura, there are multiple magi with access to it. It does not make you some sort of Servant Slaughterering Machine otherwise nobody would think Servants were impressive at all if they did and Tokiomi, who specifically wanted to win the Grail War, wouldn't have just given away a daughter that could've easily won the Grail War due to having them. There's a difference between "a spirit" like a ghost and a Heroic Spirit like a Servant. You're comparing a match to a forest fire. Sakura had an effectively infinite amount of magical energy, and from what I understand it was her connection to the grail that made her especially effective against Servants in conjunction with the general anti-spiritual nature of Imaginary Numbers.
>>
>>4722856
>>4722858
Once upon a time we thought it'd be make for a nice anti-Servant weapon. And then we completely forgot about it.
>>
>>4722876
You should probably remember to pick it up from your house if you want to use it for something. It's just carrying a powerful energy-sink isn't generally the best sort of idea for somebody who uses magical energy to accomplish basically everything.
You should probably get a special box to put it in.
>>
>>4722876
There's no need for it since our goal is now the incarnate and keep all of the servants summoned in this war. We don't want their souls to go into Sakura or Illya.
>>
>>4722875
Hey, WhatIs, I have an interesting suggestion but I am not sure if it fits within Carnival Phantasm or Interludes or not.
A scene where Medea get DEAD END but instead of death she gets her own version of Taiga Dojo with few friendly mythological greek woman who give her advices on current scene and advices on current harem situation. Something like Circe`s Consultation Cabinet.
>>
>>4722878
Yeah, I'll try to remember to bring it up again when we stop running around putting out fires and start discussing plans. It does require some preparation.

>>4722880
True, I've been against killing anyone too. But it shouldn't be an instakill attack, and we don't need to drain anyone until they die, just until they're too weak to resist Rule Breaker or the touch of Truth.
>>
Also, WhatIs, is there any particular downside to reciting the first line of our Aria every single time we manifest Truth in order to reduce its cost?
>>
>>4722875
The instinct skill is Saber feeling the best way through a battle, it has nothing to do with her sensory capabilities, so her sensing an ominous presence is completely divorced from whether instinct told her to immediately leave the area or get subsumed.
Instinct can defend against sneak attacks because that is clearly someone initiating a battle, so the skill is activated. Fainting from PTSD isn't something the skill covers.
She probably felt something weird, but given she was completely winning every encounter with Alberich, just decided to go into the room to finish him off, then got surprised by the ribbons, which instinct wouldn't identify as a threat due to their relative flimsiness.
Sakuras high magical reserves made the IN magic able to display its proficiency in dealing with spirits, but she still faced resistance when trying to capture Heroic Spirits even then, notably Hercules who took a bit to get blacked, and even still wasn't completely under sakuras control, she just let him loose in the forest.
Even when Alberich captured Medusa he didn't make a prison of his IN magic to keep her, because keeping up his magic for too long drained him.
>>
>>4722905
Honestly? Not really if you don't care about revealing to people you've been working on a Reality Marble anymore.

>>4722909
>She probably felt something weird, but given she was completely winning every encounter with Alberich, just decided to go into the room to finish him off, then got surprised by the ribbons, which instinct wouldn't identify as a threat due to their relative flimsiness.
Oh come on, what an awful awful excuse.
She's a Servant battling another Servant. Getting complacent because you have the upper hand is something that they don't do. Because Noble Phantasms exist.
The “best personal course of action” in combat, would include not running into a trap because your opponent has a wall in between the two of you. Because the fight hadn't ended, Alberich had not retreated from the battle, he had moved location to gain an advantage, thus this would mean that the battle had yet to end.
Please try to remember that at Rank A, it is possible for Saber to negate the penalties to the usage of Instinct through visual and auditory interference. That's how sharp her instincts are. She doesn't even need be able to see an attack in order to raise her sword to deflect it.
Moving 10 meters away from her and hiding in a room would not suddenly make her lose her patience and attack despite her having the belief that she was up against Angra Mainyu. So why would she forget about how she lost against the shadow the first time?
Face it, Sweets wrote Saber like she had brain damage in order to give the victory-starved players a rare win and because he wanted to corrupt Saber into Saber Alter.
>Fainting from PTSD isn't something the skill covers.
Losing isn't something Instinct would help Saber avoid?
Interesting.
>>
>>4722917
>Getting complacent because you have the upper hand is something that they don't do.
Unless you are Gilgamesh, and we see how that works out for him three times.
>>
>>4722917
Alright. I think we're long past the point of subtlety here, but it's something we should keep in mind anyway.
>>
>>4722917
>She forgot how she lost to the shadow before.
Alberich acted like an altered servant rather than Angra, she had no reason to believe he would grapple her the way he did given how their encounters had gone up to then, with him losing every time then retreating.
Also, she literally wasn't in her right mind since she'd just escaped from the 5th HGW, her excaliburing in the middle of Tokyo is plenty evidence that she wasn't acting the way she normally would've.
>>
>>4722925
>Alberich acted like an altered servant rather than Angra
This would be an argument if Alberich didn't have white hair, red eyes, and a black cloak with red stripes.
>she had no reason to believe he would grapple her the way he did given how their encounters had gone up to then, with him losing every time then retreating.
In their previous encounters, she also didn't ever give him an opportunity to do this, and she beat him soundly after the first time and for some reason didn't finish off her opponent after his Master was slain, really really weird.
>Also, she literally wasn't in her right mind since she'd just escaped from the 5th HGW, her excaliburing in the middle of Tokyo is plenty evidence that she wasn't acting the way she normally would've.
But Saber is the sort of person who would Excalibur the middle of Tokyo if she thought that was the price she had to pay to kill Angra Mainyu, it would kill a few people, but if she thought she was fighting Angra, then she would do so with a heavy heart, because it's the difference between killing a few thousand people compared to letting the entire world die.
You got any more lame excuses to share, or are you going to accept that that scene in particular was poorly written?
Sweets as an author had a bad habit of forgetting or ignoring the abilities of the characters. I still liked the story, but...
Well let's not forget what happened to Perseus, where Sweets was wrong about his Battle Continuation so it got nerfed into the floor so he could instantly be killed by being shot once in the heart.
>>
>>4722928
>This would be an argument if Alberich didn't have white hair, red eyes, and a black cloak with red stripes.
His appearance would've made her wary of tendrils on their initial meeting, but subsequent meetings would give her a more rounded grasp on his capabilities, and his failure to use them before capturing her makes their effectiveness perfectly reasonable to believe, especially since Servants generally can't gain new skills.
>and for some reason didn't finish off her opponent after his Master was slain
Didn't Harris want to use Alberich to cull the competition? Either he fades away and there's one less servant or he lives and kills the others.
Though that I could've just made that up, it's been a while.
>But Saber is the sort of person who would Excalibur the middle of Tokyo if she thought that was the price she had to pay to kill Angra Mainyu
But it was clearly overkill. She was dominating the fight the whole time, normally she would care about those innocents more than making a fight immediately end instead of taking a few more minutes to slice him up.
>>
>>4722952
>but subsequent meetings
Pretty sure that this was their second meeting, Completely unreasonable for Saber to assume that Alberich used every single trump card he had in their first battle. She hadn't used Excalibur, after all.
Rider never uses Breaker Gorgon for the entire duration of F/SN, as an example.
Cu Chulainn doesn't use his runes in his first fight with Saber either, if I recall correctly.
>Didn't Harris want to use Alberich to cull the competition? Either he fades away and there's one less servant or he lives and kills the others.
But that's stupid.
You don't just leave stray Servants alive. It would've been immensely simple for Kiritsugu to just murder Kayneth, yet he went through the whole rigmarole of the Self-Geas scroll to make sure Diarmuid was going to die as well.
Leaving Alberich alive makes Harris look like a massive retard, and was why people thought he was Odin.
>But it was clearly overkill.
Nope.
Angra possessed people have tremendous regeneration capabilities. As do Angra blackened Servants.
In Sparks Liner High, Shirou only manages to delay Saber Alter for a few minutes as she heals from multiple lethal wounds.
And Sakura regenerates from being impaled and sliced in half by GoB before Gil can walk over to her and decapitate her.

"Eh... That's it...?" Neco-Arc watches the curtain close with a frown on her face. "Really? I was... sort of expecting this Carnival to go on a little longer than this! I demand an encore!" The tiny cat-girl isn't happy about the Carnival ending this quickly, that much is obvious. "Also... why did they hire us to do the Outro? What about the little girl and her teacher? Were they busy?"

Neco-Arc Chaos takes a draw on a cigar. "Unfortunately, we had to let the two of them go after the last time. The master of the Dojo raised too much of a fuss about not being given a bigger role last time, and they didn't have a role at all this time!" The diminutive cat person breathes out a cloud of smoke "The time for Carnival Moments is fleeting and quick, do not be sad it's gone, simply be happy that it... Hmm, what's this?" A hand passes the man a letter, though the hand doesn't actually seem to be attached to anyone. Though it is quickly snatched away by Neco-Arc before he can read it.

"Let's syee here... Due to greater budget... more time to develop... enhanced research grants... the incinyaration of the Human Order... Ah! From now on, Carnival Moments will occur once every one or two months!" She reads with a wide smile on her face.

"Un-Un-Un!!!" Bubbles is even more excited than usual at the tremendous revelation! The Carnival will go on!

"W-what?" Neco-Arc Chaos falls off of his chair in shock. "They... can't be serious?! But... what about the logical stability of the main story!"

"Yeah! Looks like we're going to be having a Forever Carnival after all!" Neco-Arc brandishes the letter in the air. It seems that it is not time for the Carnival to end properly after all. "Who cares about all that nonsense anyway? Carnival Forever!"

"Good grief." Neco-Arc Chaos quickly recovers from his surprise, gets back on his chair, and takes a draw on his cigar again. "That's all for now, folks."

Carnival End.

Why wouldn't she believe Alberich would've gone all-out on their first encounter when it ended with his complete defeat and the death of his Master?
That fight gave every reason for her to believe him to have shown all his cards to her, with how desperate his situation was.
Their regeneration was due to their high amount of magical energy because of Sakura being connected to the Grail, and Saber wouldn't have believed that Alberich could fade due to a lack of magical energy if she thought he was connected to the grail like that.
Even if she was concerned about that, she could've just decapitated him after disabling him instead of nuking the area, even Sakura couldn't revive Berserker.
It was clearly an attack out of anger rather than necessity.

But I imagine if Sweets were actually here he would've put his trip on to discuss his thoughts on things and maybe given some sort of an ETA about when we could expect him to actually come back and finish Awakening.

Now that you've proven yourself to be above the magical sealing properties that Breaker Gorgon is capable of bringing about, then there's really nothing to stop you from reinforcing your body, is there? You draw out some of your magical energy, and you find yourself pleasantly surprised once again as there is no resistance as you use it so suffuse your entire body with, your legs and arms especially, but you don't ignore the physical reinforcement to your body's endurance either. You're about as powerful as a weak Servant like this, not the sort of reinforcement your body can reach when you're wielding the power of Amethyst, but nevertheless, you're pretty confident between your reinforcement and ability to manifest Truth here, you're not going to run into any difficulty. Now... There's just one more thing to do...

"Hup!" You quickly walk over to Sakura and sweep her into a princess carry. She makes a noise of surprise as she wraps her arms around your neck after recovering from the initial shock. "OK, Sakura, hold on tight, I'm going to take us through that forest! We'll take the quickest route!"

"Are you sure I won't slow you down, Onii-chan?" Sakura asks, concern in her voice, while it's true that she might be a little heavier than somebody like Betty or Illya, she's still light enough for you to not be inconvenienced by holding her like this, and especially not after reinforcing your body to the level of a weak Servant.

"Absolutely certain, we can't spend any more time than we have to in this place, every moment we spend in this place means my body outside this place uses more of my magical energy keeping the barrier around us, not to mention that if we spend too long here, we will eventually run out of oxygen, even if my magical energy holds up." That would be a terrible way to die, but a manifested barrier of truth around yourself will of course fade before such a thing would ever really become an issue for you. "Now, let's go!" You don't stick around to hear any potential response your sister might've had to going through the forests, and you begin to race through the forest at a speed equal to a car, the wind blasting against your face is kind of annoying, but your reinforcement means that it's barely an issue, for you at least. Sakura might have access to some of her powers here as well, but it looks like her body has been reduced to a normal level, so she's snuggling against your chest for warmth even as you dash through the forests at an inhuman speed.
>>
It doesn't take you long to reach the halfway point of the forests, and as you do, you can see a large snake that seems to be planning to block your path! Ha! Good luck with that, you dumb monster! You surge the magical energy in your legs, and leap high into the air, soaring through the air for a few moments before you land on the head of the beast. "Die!" You yell only a single command as you further reinforce your leg, and bring your foot down atop the vulnerable skull of the snake beast, feeling the crunch of it's skull as you bring your foot down atop it's head like it was a hammer. You don't hang about and wait for the monster to die off though, and before it can even rear about as a result of being dealt a hefty amount of brain damage from your attack, you're off again, leaping off of the snake and landing gracefully on the floor. Sakura is still securely in your hands as you begin to sprint once again.

Branches, snakes, and strange shadowy humanoid manifestations, you avoid them all with great ease, or if it's one directly in your path, you make sure they regret trying to obstruct your path by dealing them a fatal blow with a kick before moving on as if they were nothing. You aren't sure just what the shadowy humanoids are, but if you had to guess from one of them taking on the appearance of a man in the uniform of a police officer, you'd say that these are all the souls that have been consumed by the Gorgon, their bodies twisted into mindless monsters to patrol a dead island by the creature that consumed them. Still, they are even easier to kill than the snake was, a single reinforced kick usually doing enough damage to separate their flimsy bodies, and though it looks like they can reform from their wounds, unlike the snakes, it's not really a concern to you, as you keep moving.

Sakura is still tightly holding onto you as you carry her through this forest of madness, before the dead trees finally begin to thin out, and you find yourself presented with a choice of locations. A dark cave, the place where the Gorgon is almost certainly lurking, an area of the island that seems to have been damaged by heavy battle, the ground is scarred with great lumps of the earth having been carved out, and the trees around have almost all been felled. In more than one place there are great impact craters, as if large explosions have gone off. Of course, finally, there's a path upwards, towards the shining light. A temple of white marble that seems to have been covered in a bright pink barrier, could you even get through that barrier?

The temple could be where she keeps her humanity and affection for both of us, in that case breaking barrier could mean freeing her or alternatively exposing her.
Confronting the Gorgon could give us chance to defeat her monster aspect or kill her entirely, not sure which, and whether obliterating her monstrous aspect rather than placing it under her control would be optimal either...
Going to battlefield is liable to yield clues at cost of time...

Satsuki's "arc", is her being a perpetual side chick.
She doesn't put herself upon us as much as the other girls and in a battle of romance the squeaky wheel gets the coconut oil.

>Medea is the current new hotness because she's always with and actively helping Shinji with her powers. She's also now, the mother of his child, thanks to those same super helpful powers.
>Sakura is next in line, not only because her safety and happiness has been a desire of the players and the protag since the start, but also because her safety and happiness is a damn necessity to avoid outright tragedy. First it was Dark Sakura, now it's Titmat.
>Mordred took over the thread as you said, and commanded Shinji's attention by appointing him as her adviser AND by summoning her Mom. Not that the later event was on purpose but it still contributed to Shinji being forced to give Mordred and Mordred related issues more attention.
>Shuten was being high maintenance, so she got a kiss.
>Medea started squeakin so we turned around and smooched her too.
If Satsuki wants that Truth D, she's gonna have to step up her game and start being more Dangerous.
At the moment she's probably the least threatening girl on our squad so she doesn't come up, both for making battle plan, and for making sure they're happy and won't cause a dead end.
This, in my opinion is WHY she's best girl, but this is a fates quest.

You set Sakura down for now. You're pretty certain that the danger has passed now that you're out in the open. You aren't about to be snuck up on now that you can see the surroundings clearly, and other than a few tufts of dying grass on the soil, the floor itself is bare, there's nowhere that something could hide here. "Come on Sakura, we're going up those steps, I want to see what's inside that temple. It looks the it's the only place that has yet to be consumed by the evil I can feel seeping through every layer of our surroundings." Likely as a result of the barrier, the temple structure, despite being mostly ruined, is not tinged by the darkness.

"Alright, let's go, Onii-chan!" You take Sakura's hand as you begin to rapidly ascend the steps up towards the temple. It's a fairly long way, but compared to the sprint you just had through the forest while holding Sakura and reinforcing your body to the highest safe level, you consider it a breath of fresh air. Speaking of reinforcement, you lower the effects of your reinforcement on your body for now. There's no use to keep yourself at your max, especially when there's no sign of danger. Not to mention that if something did appear that was fast enough to kill you before you could reactivate your reinforcement, it wouldn't make the slightest bit of difference anyway.

It takes a few minutes for you to finish ascending the steps, and Sakura is panting in exhaustion from the effort of climbing. Sakura is... not somebody who is in good shape, and it's probably partially your problem for that, you do sometimes spoil her maybe a little too much, and there's only so much that Rin forcing her to exercise with her can do. Finally though, you stand atop the hill, passing through the pink barrier with great ease. As you pass through, you spend a moment marveling at the change in your surroundings. The place that you just came from seems to have been completely restored, what was once a dead forest and a scarred battlefield is now a lush forest and a beautiful meadow, even the sky changes color! Going from a miserable dark gray to a bright happy blue. Strange... Some sort of illusionary bounded field?

Disregarding the change in your surroundings, you look back to the temple. In front of you is an archway, the doors that once adorned the building have long since broken and rotten away, and besides the archway, you see your first statue. A man with his sword drawn, and an angry expression, stuck that way for the rest of time, or until he erodes away into dust, at least. Sakura looks at the statue with a frown. "Come on, let's see what's inside, we might be able to find Medusa here."

You creep through the archway, careful to avoid making any sound as you do, and you soon find yourself standing in a sea of statues. Each with a different pose, though all of them having the same intention. Every single one of these men was about to attack the moment they were immediately petrified. Medusa... She really didn't hang around in life, did she? You keep wandering around, weaving through the statues and the great stone pillars. Then a noise from a building that actually has a door on it startles you. The sound of a horse... whinnying? Could Pegasus be in there? You drag your attention away from the building for a moment, and you can see another building up ahead, a larger one with doors. From here, the statues seem to be a little more... colorful than normal.

I can't figure out what we might gain by examining the statues. Going into the further building skips things that would probably be helpful. Calling out will probably be answered by her sisters. I'd like to get the horse first, even if only to help Medusa realise that Pegasus still likes her.

"I think we should check out this smaller building first, Sakura." You keep your voice quiet, not wanting to alert anybody that might be in these ruins. You doubt it's the case, but this could very well end up being the place that the Gorgon has taken to nesting in... then again, you imagine that the monstrous version of Medusa would probably have preferred the cave that leads to the bowels of the mountain, it's a far more fitting lair for one such as the Gorgon. Not to mention that if the Gorgon were in this place, then it's highly doubtful that a horse like Pegasus would also be here. The winged horse would've already fled, or it would have been eaten.

Sakura nods in silence as you creep towards the building, quietly, you open the doors and step inside... Yep, it definitely smells like a stable, though there's only a single animal within it. Looking at you with eyes that give the expression of far more intelligence than one would expect from the animal it appears to be, is a pure white winged horse. It tilts its head at you as it stares at you, before it moves to the far side of the room. Away from you and Sakura. Clearly, it doesn't trust either of the two of you.

You take a step forwards, and the horse stops backing away, and instead clacks one of its powerful hooves on the floor, cracking one of the stone tiles in a threatening manner. "Woah, easy there." You take a step back from the horse as you hold a hand out to show that you mean no harm. "I'm just... here to help your rider and both of her sisters. I'm a... friend of Medusa's." The winged horse snorts, you have no idea if it can actually understand your words or if that was a natural reaction of an animal. It taps its foot against the floor once again, but this time, there's less power behind the action, and you quickly see why.

Just above Pegasus' left front leg is a bloody gash, it must be causing the creature a great deal of pain. You look at the horse a little closer and you frown. The bloody gash isn't the only injury on the horse. One of the horse's powerful wings seems to be... bent, if ever so slightly. The wound on the wing has clearly been treated by somebody with a great deal of care, but not a great deal of skill. It will never heal as it currently is, even for a beast as powerful as Pegasus, if the wound on its wings heals incorrectly, the once proud Phantasmal Beast would be grounded for life.

I wonder if it's the obvious option that it's one of the sisters that tried to heal Pegasus, or if there's someone else in the fun park this time?
>>
>>4723381
Good question. There were some craters we didn't investigate. Someone must have caused them. My working theory, admittedly on shaky grounds, is that there's a bit of split personality going on here. There's a Medusa separate from the Gorgon, getting weaker as the other gets stronger, who tried to fight the Gorgon while riding Pegasus and lost. Pegasus is the cause of the craters in the battlefield.
>>
>>4723390
Logic dictates that we should also be able to find the contract somewhere in here too right? Manaka may have left a jannie in here for us expecting Breaker Gorgon to capture someone. Seeing as we were already dead ended here it's safe to say Gorgon doesn't have a "do not kill" order in hers.

I am expecting a contract as well, or something serving a similar function, but I'd be very surprised if it's anywhere but in the bottom of the Gorgon's cave. Jannie is possible, certainly, but I can't imagine who it could be that would be able to stop us if the Gorgon by herself can't. As for the "do not kill"

>"We're trapped in Medusa's mind. From what I gather, and we're going to either need to break out, or find the way out, before my magical energy on the outside world gives out and she eats us both." You do kind of doubt that any sort of contract given to her by Manaka would be truly binding to one as powerful as the Gorgon, her base instincts as the Gorgon would likely overpower any command given to her to not kill you.

Which means Medusa, if she exists as a separate entity in this dreamscape will be forcefully hostile or actively avoiding us. I find it odd one of her hobbies is stalking yet she has no Presence Concealment. Meanwhile Stheno has A+

"Sakura... Try to help me beckon this horse over to us, would you?" You keep your voice steady and quiet still. You wouldn't want to spook it, after all. It might be hurt right now, but with that level of strength, this thing could still very much kill you and Sakura with a single kick each. You really don't want to rile Pegasus up. "I think it'll respond better to you, seeing as you were Medusa's Master."

"R-right." Sakura takes a step forward this time, and the horse eyes her warily, but doesn't stomp the ground. "Hello, Mr. Horse, please don't be mad that we entered your house without asking. Me and my elder brother got a little bit... lost. We're looking for our friend, Medusa." She's talking to the thing like it's a child! "I'd really appreciate it if you could... come over her and help us, I'm sure that Medusa would be really happy too!" It takes another step, before it winces in pain from its wound and stops. "Oh that's... quite a terrible wound." Sakura pretends to have only just noticed the wound on the horses leg, and she takes another step towards it. "If you let me and my Onii-chan help you, I'm sure that we'll be able to help you with it, my Onii-chan is... the best healer on the planet!" Sakura boasts about your skill to the horse, and she's... not exactly wrong. "In fact, he's... even better than the gods themselves!" Well, sure, so long as you don't need to retrieve a soul from wherever it is that they go after death, you can heal any wound, even those cursed to be completely unhealable at the highest possible level.

This comment gets the interest of the beast, and it begins to trot towards you and Sakura with speed, before it comes to a stop right in front of you. It's still eyeing you suspiciously, but it doesn't flinch away when you raise your hand to stroke it on the neck. The hair of the horse is exceptionally groomed, for as little as whoever treated his wounds knew about medicine and health in general, it's very obvious that they excelled at grooming the animal. You slowly bring your hand towards the wound of the horse, and bring about the miracle that is Truth Healing upon the wound. Watching as the blood disappears and the flesh of the horse knits itself back together, causing the wound to fully disappear without a trace that it was ever there to begin with. When the process of healing the gash is finished, you pat the neck of the horses once again, and unexpectedly, the horse nuzzles you, burying its snout into your shirt for a few seconds, before it stops and moves away, then it turns just a little to show you the injured wing. Despite not looking nearly as bad as the gash, this was easily the worse wound.

I am willing to bet Medusa, if she's separate from the Gorgon, will not be hostile. I am also willing to bet, a lesser amount, that she's in that building further away, despairing and resigned to her fate. So we'll have to convince her to pick herself up and fight, and we'll have to help her defeat the Gorgon in her mind.

Also, you don't have to have an inherent talent at your hobbies to enjoy them
>>
"Don't worry, Pegasus. I'll heal this as well." You reassure the horse with some kind words as you raise your hand up to the damaged joint, and once again begin to heal it, the entire wing shifts a little bit as it is set back into proper position, it doesn't take that much time to heal the wound that wouldn't have normally been possible for the Pegasus to have healed naturally.

When the horse is fully healed, you take a step away from it, and allow it to stretch its wings properly. It beats them experimentally, to see if it is truly healed, before it folds away its wings once again and starts to nuzzle you quite forcefully. For some reason, it keeps going for your legs, and Sakura giggles. "Onii-chan... I think he wants you to ride him!" Really? Could Pegasus really be trying to show his gratitude by allowing you to ride him? You... don't really need convincing if the horse is really making you such an offer, and you grab hold of the back of the animal, clambering atop of it, before a massive rush of information being fed directly into your brain nearly makes you fall off the horse. The best methods to pilot practically every single animal or vehicle make themselves clear to you at the moment you were truly accepted by this horse as somebody who could ride it. It seems something very strange has happened as a result of Pegasus' decision thanks to this place being at it's core a mental world.

[Status Update!]

You don't get long to appreciate your newfound skill at Riding, having been copied over from Rider herself and applied directly to your own consciousness thanks to the will of the Pegasus, as you look up to see a small girl wearing a black and white dress and a bow matching the colors of her dress on her long purple hair. She is clearly shocked to see the presence of two new arrivals in Pegasus' stables, and looks like she might bolt and run at any moment.

I thought we could already do that after her blessing?

And I was awfully, awfully tempted to be rude to that manipulative little goblin, but we're on the clock here. We'll have all the time in the world to tell them off after we've saved the one good sister, Medusa.

As in, a bow in her hair.
I don't know why I didn't just call it a hairband.
A bonnet, maybe?

Euryale has flowers on her headband in some art and later ascensions, Stheno has the plain black on white headband/bonnet thing. Stheno's hand ornaments are also thicker and Euryale wears jewellery like shin greaves where as Stheno just has very ornate sandal like jewellery up her legs. But in older art they're indistinguishable. They also often swapped clothes just to trick people.
>>
>>4723563
Yes, when one of them is an archer the word bow is probably best to be avoided. Goddamn English using the same word for completely unrelated concepts.

And good going, Peg! We can now ride our daughter to battle! Which... sounds awfully, awfully wrong.

>>4723570
I see. I was going off them being indistinguishable, an actual (archery) bow would have been a dead giveaway.
>>
i'm extremely excited to be able to ride our dragon daughter into battle

If this is either of the two sisters, I'm immediately voting that we flick her forehead and tell her that we like taller women

I will support this, but only after she leads us to Medusa. She needs to see it.

Well, good night, everyone.
I hope you don't go too hard on the bullying with these two. They really don't know any better. Even if they absolutely do deserve it.
>>
>>4723591
aren't most of Shinji's love interests older than him too?
>>
>>4723606
That depends entirely on Medusa's current condition, and on how helpful the two little goblins will be. I am expecting some proper Shinji putdowns the moment they start misbehaving.

>>4723610
Sakura's younger, and she's the #2 candidate now. Illya looks younger, but I think all the Illyafags are gone. And Satsuki is too, but almost no one cares about her. Poor Satsuki.
>>
>>4723615
idk everyone was pretty adamant about wanting to save her from being a Dead Apostle, its just a shit dice roll
>>
>>4723615
Sakura and Satsuki are the ones I care for the most. I always go for the childhood friend, and feel bad when they get shafted so often.
Medea is great too though.
>>
>>4723615
We care about satsuki though there's always one anon every thread that reminds us to feed satsuki.
>>
>>4723620
I interpret the results as there being wide support to saving her, but not nearly as much to actually romancing her. Or maybe the Satsukifags turned into Medeafags? I would certainly not have guessed Medea being #1 if you'd asked me before the war.

you should probably interpret the results about Satsuki to be incorrect.
She wasn't on the actual poll for about twelve hours.
>>
>>4723634
True, but if anyone wanted to vote for her during those hours, wouldn't they have noticed and said something?
>>
>>4723610
It's a result of growing up without a mother.
>>
>>4723625
>>4723628
on the bright side, that one Paradox Carnival story had Satsuki live in Shinji's castle

>>4723629
the vote is also mixed in with non love interests which also split the vote, plus Satsuki hasn't actually done anything for a while, Sakura and Medea are almost always with Shinji because Sakura is the person he's most worried about and Medea is his MVP

>>4723606
They DO know better, and they DO deserve it.
I can't wait to patrol their antics all the time.

It'll be great when they start to realize that people have the hots for medusa FAR more than them
>>
>>4723641
There can't have been any vote splitting here, 8 votes are more than enough for anyone. I do agree those are the reasons for the two of them being on top. Sakura's smile has been our chief motivation for ages, and getting Medea back was like we were crippled and we can now walk again.

>>4723644
If they're too shy to bring up her not even an option, they'll be too shy to bring her up when it's actually important.
>>
>>4723662
>It'll be great when they start to realize that people have the hots for medusa FAR more than them
Well, that depends on whether or not they keep their uh... abilities, if you end up trying to bring them back to life.
There's a reason that Medusa ended up having to kill so many people, and she only really ended up having to become the monster she is because Stheno and Euryale had exceptional charms that turned basically any man who looked at them into kidnappers at best, and rapists at worst. So her killing humans to defend the two of them fed into her being known as a monster, which caused more men to come to slay her too, until this cycle caused Medusa to end up killing and devouring so many humans, that she started to become a monster.

Basically, in choosing to live with Medusa on the Shapeless Island so that she wouldn't have to be alone, they doomed her and themselves.
>>
>>4723676
At least we aren't personally in danger from that, right? Since its mental fuckery we're immune to?
>>
>>4723676
never once trust any non-caster with a charm skill. Also, greeks must have shit taste if they go after THOSE two
>>
>>4723684
Mhm.
You're free to call them little goblins, should you want.
Same goes for anyone with any variety of Charm skill, up to and including even things like Heaven's Hole.
>>
>>4723690
speaking of Heaven's Hole, after the HGW, gonna need to find and adopt Kiara
>>
>>4723690
I'm really glad that you gave us that skill.
Something like that is borderline required in any quest that features mind altering effects because absolutely nobody is going to be happy with anything that results from having their character's mind taken away.
>>
>>4723687
> Also, greeks must have shit taste if they go after THOSE two
Their charm skills are divine, and any normal men who look at them would probably fall in love with them as a result.
Also, you need to remember that the only rumor about them was probably "Two beautiful goddesses kept prisoner by a monster" or something along those lines.
The Shapeless Isles probably had a 0 percent survival too, so it's not like somebody would return to tell the tale.
>>
Now that I read it over more carefully, it just says "mental interference" is what the immunity is for.
Would it also shit on stuff like Merlin and Prelati's Illusionism?
>>
>>4723721
Not at their rank, unfortunately, as they are capable of tricking the environment itself.

Oh, also,
>Prelati had teachers in magecraft who reside in or near a lake,
>Merlin has Illusionism at A.
>Merlin taught Vivian, the Lady of the Lake how to use magecraft
>Prelati also has Illusionism at A
I think you might know what I'm getting at here...
>>
>>4723734
Oh wow, they straight up revealed one of Prelati's teachers was actually just taught by Merlin? Huh.
Guess it's not just a theory then.
>>
>>4723734
I meant more in the personal scale. So even if they can do Marble Phantasm-esque stuff to the environment they still cant do stuff directly to our brain?
Or are they just so good it doesnt count as mental stuff at all. Wouldnt stop them from killing us but...
>>
>>4723734
Also, I suppose you'd be immune to illusions that are supposed to specifically target your mind, but you wouldn't be able to see through an illusionary wall that was created to fool anybody that walked past it, if you understand me.
Usually, illusions are things limited to the mind of a target, but Merlin and Prelati have it at such a level that they are capable of creating illusions that exist within the world.
If you understand that.
>>
>>4723749
> Wouldnt stop them from killing us but...
Bah, Francesca couldn't even defeat Old Zouken when her illusions didn't work on him. Without her book she's very much a one-trick pony.
>>
>>4723754
Did Zouken actually get weaker with age or just more senile? I think he can do stuff like kill a Demon Pillar and Jack in his youth,
>>
>>4723760
He got weaker as he aged.
Prime Zouken was low Servant Level apparently.
>>
>>4723752
Also, I interpreted this "fooling the world" type illusionism as less creating "real" illusions, but treating either the Texture or local Human Order as a "mind" to fuck with.
I don't know if thats worse or not, but in my mind that explains why Merlin's Incubus based illusion fuckery is so stronk. Dream demon> Human Order(common dream of humanity)

I may also be completely off-base with this.
>>
>>4723760
Prime Zouken was a Grand who garnered the respect of Paracelsus and pretty much figured out the route towards the Third Magic. Why he didn't choose to become a Dead Apostle instead of a pile of rape worms, i'll never know
>>
>>4723773
Is this that stuff about Human Order being strong enough that normal humans can do Servant summoning = no Dead Apostles maybe?

I am still not clear if thats a thing, and if so why, but it would explain Why. DAs were not a thing for him.
>>
>>4723781
Dead Apostles still exist in the Fate World, Dead Apostle Ancestors don't, certain Dead Apostle Ancestors do show up but the group doesn't exist
>>
>>4723784
I think I remember some weird shit in Strange Fake where Enkidu and Gilgamesh don't recognize what a Dead Apostle is...but its also Strange Fake
>>
>>4723806
Dead Apostles didn't exist in BC
>>
>>4723806
Also it may also just refer to "natural" Dead Apostles turned by others and not ones that become like due to research. So Roa wouldn't be one, but Norikata could do it in theory?
>>
>>4723806
Eh, that's understandable.
The two of them would both predate the creation of the True Ancestors, I imagine, so Dead Apostles would be complete unknowns to them too.
>>4723771
It's really up for interpretation, but it might be possible for Merlin to fake a Marble Phantasm style ability with his illusions if he really tried to.
>>4723773
He was a Pride.
Which makes no god damned sense, unless he just decided to bail on the Clocktower's ranking system.
As the guy behind the Command Spells, Zouken was talented enough to create effects like teleportation, not to mention create a system that could actually control Heroic Spirits.
Yet he's only a Pride?
That's honestly bullshit, if you ask me.
>>
>>4723820
Could've sworn the oldest were 4k years ago.
>>
>>4723827
Well, the creation of True Ancestors in the time before Nasu arbitrarily decided the worlds didn't fit together anymore.
Otherwise, Dead Apostle creation just sort of... happened.
For reasons.
Honestly, Roa shouldn't have even had any reason to become a Dead Apostle in timelines where Arcueid didn't exist, considering he only did it in the first place because he was obsessed with her.
But yeah, Dead Apostles were created some time after Gilgy's era no matter what the timeline. Otherwise he would've probably wiped them all out.
>>
>>4723830
Gil was around 4600 years ago though, so it checks out.
>>
>>4723827
actually it makes sense if he decided to bail on the Clocktower, if he's capable of creating command spells and creating a path towards the Third Magic, that's an insta Sealing Designation

>>4723835
probably found one reason or another to want immortality, then he got owned by Edmond Dantes
>>
>>4723703
Yeah. Gotta save her from that weird sex cult and whatever disease she has.
Speaking of kids that need saving, what about Alice, the girl that fused with Nursery Rime? Didn't she get experimented on by the clocktower?
>>
>>4723852
we're probably gonna have to firebomb Clocktower, don't think they'll appreciate someone openly using magecraft like we almost certainly will
>>
>>4723846
Roa in his prime when he first got Arc to turn him was an absolute monster.
The guy needed the entire Burial Agency and 30% Arc to take him down. He had Age of Gods magecraft like the Sea of Life, and had a Reality Marble.
Fate Roa is lame.
Roa gets bullied enough as is.
>>
>>4723863
They actually built the Clocktower on top of the corpse of a Mountain Sized Dragon.
Somebody won't like that.
>>
>>4723869
I think Nasu just hates Roa now, like he's never really used at all, at least Nrvnqsr pops up here and there
>>
>>4723869
Wasn't the Sea of Life/Genesis NRQSR(fuck I cant spell this) inspiration?

And yeah, Roa basically won against a lot of Apostle Ancestors so they...did not include him because of that, in the DAA list?
>>
>>4723876
Also, is that dragon alive enough for us to heal? Since iirc its head is still kinda alive.

Dude just wanted to escape into the Reverse.
>>
>>4723876
Was it the red or white dragon? Or a third different one?
>>
>>4723881
The excuse given was that he didn't play by the DAA's rules and went against them in a few ways which makes sense actually. He disrespected Arc so her followers don't want him, he beat the shit out of Altrouge so she's out too and I assume he did something to burn that bridge with Trhvmn
>>
>>4723879
We only ever seen a dumb amnesiac Roa.
Even as a human Roa would've been monstrously strong, seeing as he co-founded the Burial Agency.
Having Dantes shit on him is just silly.
>>4723881
Yeah Roa taught Nrvnqsr how to use the spell to turn himself into what he is.
As for Roa's extra rank, they were just annoyed that hewasn't satisfied by normal dead apostle immortality.
Then they go ahead and put the sleepy spider, a dog, a forest and the moon in their special club.
Very silly.
>>
>>4723883
A different one, Clocktower has existed since before the AD Calendar.
>>
>>4723883
Below the Clocktower its called "Spirit Tomb Albion", but I don't know if that tells anyone anything about its identity.
>>
>>4723903
I would agree but Dantes is based and i love him
>>
>>4723915
Yeah, it's where they keep their magical DRM to stop people from pirating spells.
>>
>>4723903
Stanrobe, TATARI and Nrvnqsr aren't strictly DAs either I think, so theyre even less. Wraith, weird ass phenomenon, RM dude. Or was Chaos a legit a DA and had RM on top?
>>
>>4723903
Yeah, I always thought it was weird that Roa is too much of a weirdo to be part of the DAA club but hikki spider gets to sit in on meetings.
>>
>>4723923
Not like it matters at this point when space probes have more mystery than magical incantations.
>>
>>4723923
Man, I just remembered that weird part about how Touko actually patented magic stuff like her broom flight and her revival of runecraft shit. And she actually gets royalties.

I think Tohsakas also had some.

Wallachia dresses like Dracula so he gets a free pass despite just being the plot of Persona 2.

I feel like the 21 Dead Apostle ancestors were never really meant to be filled out but they became a dumping ground for things that kind of fit.

Also here goes my prediction; in Camelot Lostbelt we'll find out Zepia having Oberon name was actually tie to fairies and it will make him important again.

Something something, berserker Arc in Melty talks about Order and Sixth that Zepia freaked out over, something something fairies and elementals.elementals.

To this day I don't understand how making himself a curse was supposed to save the world.
It was probably secondary to getting Arc's body now that I think about it.
There seems to be a theme of great magi forgetting what they wanted to do and just using whatever magic they made to save the world to coom.
