This is for you PSPless people. People with a PSP can enjoy too, I guess.

NOTE: Read the first week on the Saber Route and then continue with Caster. That's how it is going to be sorry.

Anyway, main reasons as to why do this: Have nothing else to do on my vacation, Share the Extra storyline, something, something, bored, something. Also something to make me choose one route because I'm pretty sure I'm going to keep on choosing the other one.

Warning: I can't overstate this enough, many images, like a hundred or so at the beginning at least, in the updates because transcribing everything = uggh.

Warning2: This LP contains ∼∼commentary∼∼, which you may find boring, unnecessary and/or against your headcanon. Breathe, relax and ignore it.

Interaction between you and this LP: Almost non-existant. Because of ∼∼Technical Difficulties∼∼ (read:me being lazy) there will be no gender choice, already decided, and no servant choice since I am crazy enough to do all 3 of them at once and we will be seeing the two separate routes oh god kill me already Never mind do not kill me, Xyphos is a bro and is doing the alternate path with Rin. So really the only thing you could help is by choosing a name, when we get to that and telling me how wrong I am playing the game


Rule: Spoiling things is not cool guys. Wanna talk about what happens next? We have spoiler tags. Thanks.

We announced at last week's assembly that this month the student council would strictly enforce school rules. I have been tasked with performing inspections to ensure students are in compliance with school rules. Now, it goes without saying that EVERYONE is subject to inspections, even old friends.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: Next is the contents of your bag…. Notebooks, textbooks, pencil box! Not even a whiff of contraband. Your nails are evenly cut, and your haircut is sensible. Indeed quite remarkable. You're a model Tsukumihara Academy student.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: Oh, but I'd never try to coerce you into joining the student council. We aren't like that. Now then, off to your classroom! Enjoy your day.

Things are always so gently bustling in the morning.

Another peaceful beginning to another peaceful day.

Our First tutorial. This menu will see a lot of use.

The courtyard. We will not be seeing this too much. Anyway, Students, let's go and talk.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap002-1.jpg

Male Student: …I just wanted to try saying that once, just to see how corny it would sound. If you continue right, you'll find the Archery Range, but you should head for the school building for now. Your classroom is on the second floor right? If you don't get to your classroom soon, you'll incite Tiger's wrath.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap007-1.jpg

Male Student: What is this Archery Range you speak of? Oh, that building over there to the right. What about it?

Female Student: Well, somebody left their stuff there, but whatever.

On to the next student.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap010-1.jpg

Your homework?

Male student: Man, I must have a hole in my head. Maybe if I head back to my classroom.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap012.jpg

Archery Range. Seems familiar.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap013-1.jpg

I'd better hightail it back to the classroom. Room 2-A is on the main building's second floor.

It's missing a ] there. It bothers me.

At the bottom of the flyer is a drawing of Ms. Fujimura swinging a wooden sword.

In no way will that be a normal tutoring session. I better not get any red marks.

Meet Shinji. By the end of this conversation you will love him.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Even though we've- Hey we've been friends since our freshmen year, right? Anyway, don't sweat the fct that you're as boring as dirt. It's not like you can help it. I mean, anyone would seem boring and stupid when compared to me!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap040.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: I was just doing a little math tutoring. This stuff is beyond easy… for me, anyway.

Female Student: …Wait a sec. Hey Matou, isn't the answer to this question… totally wrong in every way?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Wh-What in the-? I'm the one who solved that! There's no way it could be wrong!

Female Student: B-But… Look at this. Since when did two plus two equals five?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap045.jpg

Shinji. Lovable.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap047.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: It's really pathetic that these worms don't know their place. That's why I like you so much. Even though you're boring, you know not to steal my thunder. You're the ultimate sidekick.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap052.jpg

I want to say we met in spring sometime… The bell for class rings as I try to recollect.

And who should fly through the door but out homeroom teacher, Ms. Fujimura.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap055.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap058.jpg

…She trips with reality itself. Only explanation possible.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap061.jpg

The classroom goes dead silent. Every student's attention is focussed on the same thing.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap063.jpg

Female Student: Listen, you! This isn't the time ti be making stupid jokes.

Male Student: You're right. She isn't moving. Did she get knocked out or something.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap066.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap067.jpg

Female Student: Ms. Fujimura…? Um… are you okay?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap069.jpg

She then stands up as if nothing happened.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap070.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap073.jpg

…No one gives a thought to how odd it is for this to happen every single day.

Day -> Midday.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap078.jpg

Tige… I mean Ms. Fujimura is conducting class today the same way she does everyday.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap080.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: In fact, outbreaks were common. But now, most illnesses are cured using nanothinymajigs! And FYI, I'm still young. This will be on the test so be sure you don't forget it. I mean it.

Midday -> Evening.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Being a studen sucks. The worst part of the whole deal is having to attend these stupid classes. You're still here? …That's unusual. You don't have any plans, like a date or something?

Ha ha, I'm just messing with you! I know you're too big of a nerd to ever get a date! I mean you're just going to your dork club- The journalism lib, right…? Well, seeing as you're boring as stale white bread, your life is exactly as it should be.

You know exactly what your role in life is, and you stay there. Well, catch you later! See you in class tomorrow.

Shinji. Lovable.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap000.jpg

2-A Classroom. There are Students, so let's talk with them.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap001-2.jpg

Male student: What?! I'd kill to be able to wear the black uniform of the student council like you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap003-2.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap004-2.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap005-2.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap006-2.jpg

Choosing the other one leads to:

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap008-2.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap009-2.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap010-2.jpg

ARGH! It's driving me insane!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap012-1.jpg

Outside on the 2nd Floor corridor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap013-2.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap014-1.jpg

But the thought of Shinji being my brother-in-law is… Ugh. If only they weren't related…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap016-2.jpg

We go up to the 3rd Floor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap017-2.jpg

A pity it seems.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap019-2.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap021-2.jpg

…Heh.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap022-2.jpg

Then we go to the 1st Floor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap023-2.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap024-2.jpg

Oh boy. This promises to be fun.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap025-2.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: I heard that you've been skipping out on the archery club's morning practices lately! Why haven't you been showing up? And where do you get off taking a break without my say so ?! You bi… I get it now. You've been going to "their" house again, haven't you?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: …Yes. I have been going there, but I just wanted to help and…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap030-2.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Wait a sec… What was that just now? Anyway, if someone gets hurt, just leave them to suffer. Just do what I tell you to, and things will be a-okay. I mean, it seems like people get some kind of perverse thrill from getting in my way. To force one of my… err… my dear little sister to miss valuable practice time…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap035-1.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: …Um…why don't you… Why is it so wrong to help those who need it?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap037-1.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: And why help anybody out? Will that person ever pay you back or help in return? Of course they won't! And if you think otherwise, you're an idiot! I won't be used by anyone. It's better to treat others as cattle. And isn't it time for you to admit to feeling the same way?!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap041-1.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap042-1.jpg

The conversation ends and we go and do the most sensible thing.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap043-1.jpg
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: If you ever start feeling unwell, please come by the nurse's office.

More Student talking.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap045-1.jpg

Female Student: Where did you get that idea? They don't look anything alike.

Female Student: Huh…? She's not?

Female Student: Uh… I'm not really sure. I feel for her, though. It's like she's the topic of a million rumors… Plus she has Shinji as a brother. If I was her, my diary would be longer than War and Peace.

Female Student: You actually keep a diary?! How… archaic. I never expected something like that from you.

Missed a check on day.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap051.jpg

Anyway let's leave the scho-

Video Here
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap053.jpg (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RQRepUgTyc)

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap054-1.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap056-1.jpg

For some unknown reason, I find my eyes drawn to the door of the supply room when…

The door is suddenly and violently thrown open.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap058-1.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: What do you think you're doing?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap062-1.jpg

A sudden, overwhelming sense of danger gives me goose bumps all over my body.

His cold, blank, stare sends chills down my spine, as though he's marking me for death.

…For some reason, it feels as if he is deciding whether to break my neck or skin me alive.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap066-1.jpg

He begins to mutter under his breath while at the same time he reaches out with his right hand.

The chills running down my spine gain intensity as waves of nausea and vertigo wash over me.

I feel like a rabbit watching the wolf draw near.

Maybe this isn't just raw terror. I think he's holding something that's making me feel this way?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap071.jpg

The note of digestion his voice is obvious as he slowly lowers his hand.

The paralysis that seemed to take hold of me suddenly fades away.

The man continues to look down on me with those dead eyes of his.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap075.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: The campus is about to close. If you have nothing else to do, I advise you to go home now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: …

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: …Is there anything else?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: …

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap078-1.jpg

The man who introduces himself as Mr. Kuzuki turns and heads back into the supply room.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap082-1.jpg

Wonderful. We now have a teacher with obvious "murderous intent" teaching at our school.

-ol. Hmm? Anyway, we go to report to the Journalism Club.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap084.jpg

Familiar enough?

Editor: What? Did you forget? You have to write an "Unsolved Mysteries of Tsukumihara" article. C'mon I told you yesterday. There isn't very much time left before the deadline. Well whatever. Your work's always good, so I'll leave this in your capable hands! Jeez, my benevolence is like a black panther running around. Yes, that doesn't make sense. So that's that. I've done some of the investigating. It's your job to do the rest.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap090-1.jpg

Editor: Okay, so about the first preview edition, the one called "Gateway to the Paranormal." So listen… There's supposedly an entrance to the spirit world at the rear of the Archery Range. One time, a male student who got bullied a lot was told to pick up trash there… and vanished. Everyone's totally convinced that there's paranormal activity going on back there.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap095-1.jpg

Editor: Anyway, go sniff out the truth! Leave no stone unturned! Your nose and eyes are the tools of the trade for a journalist. Got it?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap098.jpg

I think she replies the same no matter what you answer.

Editor: Your reply should be "Yes ma'am!" All right. Hop to it!

Anyway a student appears on the first floor now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap100.jpg

And then we leave the building.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap101.jpg

Male Student: You want to know where Tiger is? Wouldn't she be at the Archery Range or something?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap103.jpg

Female Student: He's tall, dark, and handsome… mostly dark.

So hey, the archery range is now open.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap105.jpg

Let's talk to Ms. Fujimura

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap106.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: The worst is when they leave their arrows stuck in the target mound. I usually make the kids do it, but there's no club activities leading up to exams, so I'm doing it. Huh? An entrance to the spirit world? That's just a rumor, it's not real! Exams are right around the corner, so don't waste your time on stuff like that. Go home, shoo, shoo!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap112.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap113.jpg

Then we get a choice to leave or stay. We are ditching so we go.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 0/snap114.jpg

And that's day 1. It only has 100+ images. Joy.

I believe he's still unwittingly playing the role given by the moon cell at this point.

Mike1984
December 11th, 2011, 11:10 AM
Hmm, I see....

It's rather odd, actually, that the moon cell would make him the sister of an NPC (also, it's rather odd that no-one notices how his younger sister is acting as the school nurse, rather than actually going to school...).

December 11th, 2011, 11:14 AM
Well as NPCs, the student body would tend to ignore this as a whole since the concept probably doesn't even register to them and whatnot.

I'd say it would be different for Masters, but than again they'd see her as NPC, and thus something that can be easily ignored.

Kotonoha
December 11th, 2011, 11:17 AM
It's just another of the signs that things aren't quite right. Either you go "hey, wait a minute..." eventually, or you die.

How is this best done? Video cap (you can't beat a dev kit but maybe there are 3rd party PC video out)? Emulator?

Kotonoha
December 11th, 2011, 11:58 AM
(you can't beat a dev kit but maybe there are 3rd party PC video out)?

I used Remotejoy Lite when I was recording video. It requires custom firmware on your PSP, and a double-ended audio cable if you want sound (and on Windows 7, some fucking with Windows itself to even make it let you use the driver; it wouldn't let you use it unless you had the computer in test mode). And I still got annoying buzzing sounds. Probably more trouble than it was worth. But it worked.

So, screencapping is probably the easiest method (though again you need CFW).

mewarmo990
December 11th, 2011, 12:14 PM
Thanks. If I have the time I want to do something like this for Extra CCC. Though it won't be a complete walkthrough/LP, probably just a Quick Look for the first few hours of the game, possibly plus voice commentary :3

Or any other game, if someone wants to see me play Valkyrie Profile Lenneth or something I'd be down with that.

Kotonoha
December 11th, 2011, 12:15 PM

December 11th, 2011, 12:18 PM
Yes, you'll probably beat me to it, because fuck EMS shipping.

Also need to figure out how to do voice commentary while playing. Cheaply. Right now I'm thinking of recording me talking as a separate file and then superimposing the audio over the game footage, but that doesn't seem like the best possible option.

Fag Bals. Our name is Fag Bals.

And be glad the game is at least translated now. Taking a million screenshots and then translating them was just suffering and is what killed my LP. :/

We have 16(?) characters now, be more creative. Also Fag Bals is a silly name.

And yes I'm not crazy enough to do the same. I mean is already annoying to screenshot and transcribe all of that.

In my heart, the male protagonist will always be Fag Bals.

Well, to take advantage of the larger number of characters, we could play as the girl and name her Skanky Whore!

One Day II

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap000.jpg

Still in the prologue.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap001.jpg

Ominous.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap003.jpg

I'll ask him if something happened.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap005.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Hey, you know that ice queen Rin Tousaka? She thinks she's so much better than everyone else. At first, I thought that she would be the only one who understood how lonely it is at the top. I tried talking to her yesterday, but I got nowhere. Maybe I just intimidate her or something. I might've lost a few points for getting violent, but girls who talk back to me get slapped!

Lovable really.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap010.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: What a waste. She'd be perfect if she'd just keep her mouth shut. You agree with me, right? RIGHT?

Life's more interesting when it's got little shake-ups like this.

As if right on cue, Ms. Fujimura barges into the classrooms the bell sounds.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap019.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: All right, no one's absent and since there are no announcements, let's just start homeroom.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap021.jpg

Tripping with reality. Again.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap022.jpg

As soon as she turns to reach for the chalk, she trips and falls as she always does.

As she falls, her fingernails drag across the blackboard with a horrifying sound…

And thus another typically mundane day begins anew-

There is an announcement from the student counselor- Recently, a rise in the number of slashing incidents has made the surrounding area dangerous. With that in mind, keep any detours to a minimum and head home as quickly as possible.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap039.jpg

Why I'm so gung-ho about investigating the school's "Seven Wonders" is a mystery even to me, but it seems important for some reason.

I have to turn in yesterday's report. I'd better go see the Editor in Chief this evening.

Let's talk to the other students.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap042.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap043.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap045.jpg

When we leave the classroom, this happens.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap046.jpg

Female Student: What? I'm sure you're just talking about Rin Tousaka from class B.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap048.jpg

Female Student: You've really never heard of her? Pretty, athletic, smart, classy… or a stuck-up Ms. Perfect who all the guys adore and all the girls despise.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap051.jpg

Female Student: …Are you pulling my leg?

Female Student: Girl, you're so dense you probably wouldn't feel it if I pulled your leg anyway.

Female Student: Whaa? I'm not dense…much… But… she wasn't wearing our school uniform. She was wearing red. How do you explain that?

Female Student: I dunno…. I hadn't noticed

Female Student: Huh? Maybe I'm remembering wrong.

Female Student: You would. C'mon, let's hurry to our club.

Female Student: Y-Yeah…

They leave to the 1st floor. We continue talking to the students.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap060.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap061.jpg

Female Student: Huh? What is it?

Female Student: Ms. Fujimura is living with one of the students here!

Female Student: Ew! You mean like romantically? But that's taboo!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap065.jpg

Male Student: Like, everything feels artificial somehow… Huh? Wait, that would mean… that…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap067.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap068.jpg

Male Student: …That's it, that's it! Oops, don't mind me. The crazy, sometimes it come out.

To the 3rd floor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap070.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap071.jpg

Female Student: It happened on their way home. I live near there, and now I'm scared to go home!

1st Floor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap073.jpg

Male Student: What do you want?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap075.jpg

More Shinji for you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap076.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: What, you haven't left yet? Wait, don't tell me… No, never mind. Losers like you shouldn't be on campus right now. Wh3o knows, you might get whacked by that killer. Hey, don't say I didn't warn you. Hahaha!

Oh he cares <3

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: The child of one of my parents' friends had been living alone, so I've been helping out. Which means that I go over to his house, but not that I live with him! I don't! Not at all! …Hey! What's with that face?! You don't believe your own teacher?! You're a good kid. You don't even know what those bad kids mean by "living together," right? RIGHT? And now, your teacher needs to give those kids who are spreading rumors a little educational guidance…

Scary. Anyway nobody on the archery range so let's go see the Editor.

Be the Ms. Fujimura rumor, be the Ms. Fujimura rumor, be the Ms. Fujimura rumor…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap098.jpg

Damn it.

Editor: Rumors about "Little Red Rooftop" are spreading. Go find out what this is all about. A journalist lets the news guide their feet. To the rooftop.

3rd Floor let's go u… hey Issei.

No delays anymore.

The vibrant colors set off by the setting of the sun is enough to take one's breath away.

Under the now blood red sky, a single girl looks out onto the town that spreads below.

Like a figure out of a painting, the girl seems to shine with the same red glow as the setting sun

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap108.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: What a beautiful sunset-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: I can only imagine how captivating this sight must be for the people who live here.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: It is indeed a very beautiful scene. A shame that it doesn't really exist.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: On the surface it seems like such a benign, peaceful world. A pity that it'll soon come to an end.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: This place is merely an idealized imitation of the real world. And one done in poor taste-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: I wonder if there's any value to a memory that can only be observed and then left behind

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap115.jpg

Her unwavering gaze makes it seem like she can see things hidden to others.

Her eyes seem to shine with an intensity that rivals that of the fiery red of the veining sky.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap118.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Huh, that's not it? That means you must be one of the generic N- I mean, students.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: If one of the irrelevant NPCs can get up here, I guess I'll have to find another place to hang out.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap122.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap128.jpg

Mumbling to herself, the girl disappears without a trace. It's like no one was ever there at all.

-She vanished?

There or not, her form has been indelibly burned into my mind.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap132.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: What's wrong? You look a little pale

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 1/snap136.jpg

In any case, I think the course of wisdom for now would be to go home like Issei says…

While we wait for the teacher to arrive, I get caught up on what Shinji said for some reason.

Whether or not Shinji has innate talent, I think it's pretty clear that I'm a nobody.

A nobody, with no goals. I mean, when I try to even think about the future, I get overwhelmed.

As long as I keep plodding along, some day I'll reach my totally average future. Yay.

That's what happens to everyone, right? Are there actually people who break the pattern? How?

I have no idea. For me, today is just another ordinary day.

It's him. That blonde boy is the one who's causing my body's fight or flight instincts to prickle.
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Go on, Leo. Introduce yourself.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap033.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Huh? Well, Leo…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: You'll be attending school with these people, so I'm sure they'd like to know who you are.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: …Ah, I see. These good people do not know my name yet.

He steps forward, and then in a louder voice, says-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap038.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: In time, it will be a name known to all the world, but for now it is the name of your classmate.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: I'm pleased to meet you all. I hope we enjoy our time together.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap043.jpg

Shinji's words come to mind.

…This is what it means to be on a different level.

None of us plebes could ever hope to reach the level that this new kid lives on.

It's not overextending to call his very existence transfixing.

Like deer in headlights, we're immobilized by a presence far brighter than our own.

His natural place is above us, looking down as our king.

How did someone like him end up here…? It must be a mistake.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap050.jpg
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Anyway, everyone, please make Leo feel welcome. Then, Leo, if you would please take a seat.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: It looks like the third seat in the second row from the right is open. Will that be okay?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap053.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: I see no reason to not allow you to call me Leo, as it didn't feel awkward to hear it from to you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: If you have the chance, I'd very much like for a delightful woman like you to visit my country.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Wh-what?! J-J-J-Jeez, don't joke with your teacher!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: To your seat, Leo! I won't smack you since, well, it was kind of flattering of you to say that.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap058.jpg

I think he's not so much a king as a prince. He may be above us, but he also has natural charisma that draw us up to his level.

However… It seems that there is at least one person in class whose mileage varies.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap063.jpg

Shinji's clearly not happy.

No k1dd1ng.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap065.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: There's no need to be shy.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Yes, I understand. I'm pleased that I will be attenuating such a good school.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap068.jpg

-Am I imagining things? Just for a second, I thought he shifted his attention toward ME.

Not toward anyone else, not even Shinji, who's still bad-mouthing Leo, but to me alone.

Yeah right. There's no way a practically otherworldly person like him would notice me.

…Yeah they are making this too easy. Way too easy.

We go to the end of the 2nd floor hall way to find something interesting.

???: To summarize, about thirty percent of the participants have overcome the computer's brainwashing.

???: These individuals now remember who they are.

???: They're all class A magi. One girl in particular made quick work of the brainwashing.

???: You might say she's a natural, and therefore more adept than magi who have been more sheltered.

???: Unlike those domesticated sheep, she's a wild mouflon. Stronger, rarer, wilder.

???: She couldn't even bear to put on the school uniform the other sheep mindlessly wear.

???: As novel as that girl's wildness is, wild things end up in cages.

???: Still, keep your distance and your guard up.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: She is the daughter of a noble family which makes her unruly behavior even more unbecoming.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap099.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap100.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: She's below your concern-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: There's nothing in this world that doesn't concern me, teacher.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: More importantly, I wonder what a domesticated being like me can learn from her wild bravery.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: There is nothing, because you are already perfect.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: Anything you lack is something the world itself lacks.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: It was a joke. It's been a while since I've been scolded. I think I enjoy it coming from you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: In any case, I'll heed your warning about her. So are there any other important happenings?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: It's worth noting the assassin sent by those alchemists.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: I have yet to confirm anything, but no doubt they're lurking about.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: …Ah. I don't believe I've ever seen how an alchemist fights.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Their charms, or their symbols, rather, are quite unusual.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: We have the opportunity now. Aren't you curious teacher?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: Wait until I have checked about this assassin first.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg; Those are the only ones to watch out for. However, there are others with excellent abilities.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap115.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Huh. I don't see the rush. I think there's much to be learned from observing this school.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: I'd like to take my time and enjoy, for instance, the beauty of things like the garden.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: They seem to employ quite the skilled gardener.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: You should see the garden too, Mr. Kuzuki. No- Brother.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: I will respectfully decline. …That ends my report.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: I see. Too bad.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: Then if you need anything else…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: It'll be best if we have as little contact with each other as we can.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: It is unusual for a teacher and a student to meet like this.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: I understand. Be careful.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Yes. You, too, Brother.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap128.jpg

More student talking.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap129.jpg

Female Student: There's been a number of murders in the area recently. Scary.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap131.jpg

Male Student: Leonard Bistario Harway would be the distinguished son of the Harway plutocratic family.

Male Student: He's young, but soon he'll rule the world. So what is that Western European plutocrat doing here?

Studying would be my first guess. Anyway toward the 3rd floor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap134.jpg

Male Student: The Editor in Chief asked me to investigate the Seven Wonders, but check this out…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap137.jpg

Male Student: Now that you know the details, go investigate it for me.

Male Student: Huh? You think I should just walk around the third floor and do it on my own?

Male Student: No way… I really can't handle paranormal stuff.

Male Student: If anyone can take on the case of the wandering ghost on the third floor, it's you. Good luck!

…Well let's go and do other people work. *grumble grumble*

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap142.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap144.jpg

It feels like there is someone standing right behind me, staring at the back of my head.

It has to be my imagination. I hear no footsteps, no sounds of breathing. I am alone here.

And yet, the feeling that I am not alone persists. It must be a hallucination of some kind.

What should I do? If it's my imagination playing tricks on me, then nothing should be there if I turn around and look.

So, what should I do…?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap150.jpg

Pretty obvious.

I turn around and… of course, no one is there-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap152.jpg

Welp.

Is what I want to say… However, standing there is what appears to be a young girl.

The young girl's appearance is definitely at odds with the surrounding campus.

With its mass of frills and hooped skirt, her dress is right out of the Victorian era.

Combined with her porcelain-like skin, she looks just like a child's doll come to life.

…It's kind of a relief. But the point is, she doesn't seem like she's really alive.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap158.jpg

Suddenly, her figure begins to melt away. As she slowly fades into nothingness, the last things to disappear are her eyes.

With that, the strange presence I felt fades away. There's nothing to indicate a girl was ever here.

…She must be the source of all of the "wandering girl" stories floating around school.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap162.jpg

Wimp.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap163.jpg

Male Student: Maybe it's just a coincidence,but I've had a splitting headache ever since. What's up with that?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap165.jpg

Female Student: Go home, kid. The area around this school hasn't been safe recently.

1st Floor go.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap167.jpg

Male Student: I saw her there, too. She won so many stuffed animals it was like she was mustering an army,

The image of Taiga with an army of stuffed animals is both cute and scary. But hey, more Shinji goodness.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap169.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Oh…it's you again. I don't have time to play like you obviously do.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Go play "reporter" or whaever it is friendless little geeks like you do instead of having a life.

Playing games for the internet. … OTZ

Outside the complex.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap172.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap173.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap174.jpg

Seems familiar. Anyway toward the Editor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap175.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap176.jpg

If she disappeared, there's isn't anything we can do about that.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap179.jpg

I thought she'd say something like "Hey, don't scare me like that!"

Actually, the problematic part is how nonchalant she is that a person disappeared.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap182.jpg

The Editor in chief keeps talking like nothing happened.

She's already on to the next thing.

Should I… say something?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap186.jpg

Editor: It seems the chapel has been here longer than the school.

Editor: This is just a rumor, but they say that it's haunted and magic rites are perfumed there.

Editor: I'm sending you to investigate.

Editor: The entrance to the courtyard is on the end of the right side of the first floor hallway.

…Weird. Anyway let's go there.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap191.jpg

Male Student: Lately, I've been getting these crushing headaches at school. It's starting to freak me out.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap193.jpg

D0uble Welp.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap194.jpg

S0 Mr. Kuzuki knows s0me martial arts.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap195.jpg

Pictured; What happens when you touch one of the corpses. They disappear in Zelda-style smoke.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap197.jpg

But…. the man standing in front of me isn't acting like a teacher by any stretch of the imagination.

The sick malignancy of overbearing aggression fills the air. And then scattered around him are…

…dead bodies… of students?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap201.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: -I suppose I'll test you out.

His thin lips hardly moved. But in the next instant-

Not pictured: Getting hit.

I'm bowled over, as if struck by an invisible force.

Chaotic thoughts bury my brain like endless grains of sand. What happened? Can I move my limbs? Seriously, what was that?

Kuzuki hasn't moved.
No one else is nearby.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap210.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap211.jpg

His voice was a quiet hiss, but I could hear everything he said.

This man with cold, inscrutable eyes raises his palm toward me…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 2/snap216.jpg

I'm uninjured, though my body aches from laying on the hard ground.

The cold sweat that had covered me is gone, too… Only the piercing pain in my head remains.

Maybe it was just a bad dream. I gulp air and attempt to stand.

-The ground seems to move under my feet.

…I'm delusional. Of course the ground isn't moving.

I'll give my report to the Editor in Chief tomorrow and just go home for today.

also, to Mewarmo, just record both using different programs. if your sound card supports it, you can record directly off of it. Meaning you can record off your soundcard with one program while using your mic with another.

if you can't, record your commentary with your phone and your gameplay with whatever

Last part of the prologue.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap001.jpg

Evidently.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap002.jpg

Female Student: Wooowww! Okay, then how do you solve this problem, Leo?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: In this case, you substitute this for this, and divide everything by x.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: It's the same simple equation that you used earlier.

Maths joy!

Female Student: Whoa, you're right! Thank you, Leo!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap008.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap009.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: …Hmph. Whatever. It's no skin off my back. People who are ugly inside are ugly outside, too.

It seems that Shinji's gaggle of female admirers has migrated to Leo's desk.

For once, Shinji's irritation is kind of understandable.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: I'll give him this-the brat is a real charity worker, laying on the charm for those sows.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: He's desperate to appear smarter than me, but I'm real smart one here. I see what he's doing.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: That dumb little kid doesn't know that I0m onto him

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap016.jpg

Reacting to Shinji's voice, Leo glances this way.

Leo's Expression is inscrutable, but not hostile.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap019.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: What do you want? You wanna go?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap022.jpg

Oh boy.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap024.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap025.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Shinji Matou was it? I'll be careful not to upset you in the future.

His message firmly delivered, Leo returns to his seat.

His soft voice bore no note of hostility or resentment.

…I know it's hard to believe but maybe Leo wasn't upset.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap030.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: I'm such a nice guy, I'll just accept his apology. Y-Yeah, ii's not like he ever pissed me off.

After visually confirming that Leo is otherwise occupied, Shinji feigns calmness and leans back.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap033.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap034.jpg

Ah normality.

And… *Thud*

That sound makes me cringe, no matter how many times I hear it.

Everyone is desensitized to it for the most part.

Even knowing that she'll jump to her feet in a few seconds, we should probably worry more.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap038.jpg

Shinji still seems to be in a bad mood. It's obvious that he doesn't like Leo all that much.

But with him it's impossible to tell if he's really mad or just being cynical. Either way, It's just more of the same.

Just like our homeroom teacher's daily dramatic entrance. And once again, the day begins.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap042.jpg

During class, i thought I saw Leo smirk a little, but other than that nothing exciting occurred.

Today is just another boring day in a long string of boring days-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap045.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: It's a terrifying condition where an individual loses all of their memories!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: It's caused by brain damage, severe trauma, or even infections of one's mucus membranes,

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: The section of the doctor's biography we just covered touches on this condition…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: The cure fro such a scary condition was discovered by Dr. Pieceman.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: With that said, using amnesia as an excuse for forgetting your homework isn't going to fly!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: When I was young, a fair number of my classmates were unscrupulous enough to try this.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap052.jpg

And as per the norm, Tiger's lecture starts to peter out…

Just as a collective "This again?" starts to rise from the students-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap055.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Ms. Fujimura.

Without being acknowledged by the teacher, Leo suddenly rises to his feet.

The tension in the classroom ratchets up immediately as all eyes focus on Leo.

The young boy surveys the room with a mysterious smile, taking in everyone's startled glances.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap060.jpg

W31rd.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: It is time for me to leave. We will probably never meet again, so I wish you all well.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap063.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap064.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Just your presence is enough to remind me of the beauty of youth. You're a remarkable person.

After what seemed to be a very slight bow, he immediately seems to disappear from the room.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap067.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: A-All right, then… Let's continue. Please turn to page 86…

And accompanied by the sound of flipping pages, the lesson goes on as if nothing had happened.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap070.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: If you have to use the john, be a little more discreet. And that "I have to leave" crap-!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Seriously, isn't he supposed to be some kind of aristocrat or prickling or something?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap074.jpg

No one in class says anything and the class continues as if nothing strange has happened.

It was the same dull, dreary scene as yesterday, and the day before… This can't be natural…

…It's as if the world tilted slightly and everything within it is losing its sense of presence.

My head… feels like it's going to explode. The pain is making it hard to remember who I am…

Wait. Come to think of it-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap085.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap090.jpg

I can't… remember anything. My memory has been completely erased somehow.

How, and why, did this happen-?!

-That's right. The Editor in chief of the Journalism Club.

As the president of the Journalism Club, she should at least know my name.

I know I had to have filled out something when I first joined the club.

I'll ask her.

Hopefully she'll be in her normal spot.

The Editor in Chief is her usual cheery self.

All I can think about is the pile of dead bodies I witnessed.

No, I have to ask about myself. I'll ask her what my name is.

Editor: Just… look it up in the registry in the Library.

Yeah, the school registry. it has everyone's names.

If I look at the school registry, it might jog in my memories.

I'll go to the Library.

-The pages are blank.

Blank. Blank. Blank. Every single page was blank.

I reach for last year's school registry, and when I start flipping through the pages…

Blank.

Blank. Blank. Blank.

However, she just continues to stare at me with an intensity that borders on terrifying.

Maybe I should say something to her, but softly so as not to startle her?

Maybe if I keep my back to her, it'll help a little. I'll just call to her over my shoulder.

I obviously can't see the look on the young girl's face. And all I sense is… hesitation.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap126.jpg

Her voice matches her appearance… small and faint.

In a hesitant, halting voice, she begins to speak.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: I'm… Alice.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: I'm… always here, so…

She suddenly stops talking.

Thinking she disappeared again, I turn around- Only to see Alice still standing there.

As I turn, she flinches a little and begins to fade away…then stops. And starts staring at me-

As our customary staring contest begins anew, I swear that I can see a faint smile on her face.

She has striking appearance, with long purple hair, almond skin, and a preternatural calm.

It seems like she is meditating, her hands folded in a specific way and her eyes closed.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap144.jpg

I find that I can't stop looking at her.

No one else seems to notice that she stands out dramatically. I start to feel uneasy about her.

The girl's eyes snap open.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap152.jpg



When I open my eyes again, everything is exactly as it should be, like nothing happened.

However, the air is permeated with a seductively sweet scent.

Also the girl that was in the garden had already disappeared.

Was everything that happened just an illusion, or maybe-

As I turn to leave, I see the girl from the garden walking towards me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap160.jpg

As she walks, she looks out the window and talks to herself. As she goes by, she gives me a smile.

Sakura Matou's speech begins to skip and repeat, almost as if she is a malfunctioning robot.

It's like she was reading from a script rather than engaging in a normal conversation.

It wasn't only the incredible fleeing Shinji or the robotic Sakura that was going insane.

Vertigo overcomes me as the school starts to waver. Something strange is happening to the world!

As a transfer student, I can't see why Leo would want to visit any of the freshmen.

Also, there's nothing but a dead-end up ahead. I wonder what Leo is really up to…

I suddenly have this weird feeling that someone or something is up ahead in the hallway.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap188.jpg

Who, for some reason, is examining the wall at the end of the hallway with almost excessive interest.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap190.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: If that is the case, this world is in some ways more real than the real world it represents.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: But that's just my opinion… How about you guys? What are your thoughts on this?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap194.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap197.jpg

I now know for sure he's talking to me as there is nobody else present besides the two of us.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap199.jpg

I don't feel any sense of hostility from Leo. In fact, his smile seems genuinely friendly.

His smile has the same effect on me as the rising of the morning sun, warm and comforting.

In addition to his smile, his presence is inviting and inclusive and I find myself drawn to him.

Oddly, my worries have vanished. All I can think of is doing as he says, as that's the only way to…

My mind feels like it's in a haze. It's like Leo is controlling my thoughts in some way.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap205.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: In that respect, this has been quite an interesting experience.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: …However, the time for fun has come to an end. I did not come here to play at being a student.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: No matter how enjoyable the detour, eventually one must return to their appointed path.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: As for me, the time to do so has arrived…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap211.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: No, that's not quite right. I don't think farewell would be accurate in this situation.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: For reasons I cannot explain, I have the distinct feeling that we will see each other again.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: So I guess I should the more congenial, "See you later."

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Well, it's time for me to move on. I wish you the best of luck.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap216.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap217.jpg

With those final words, Leo disappears. It's like he ceases to exist. One moment, his hand is gone one the wall, the next he is gone.

The young an in front of me seem to disappear before my very eyes.

I want to say reality rejected his existence in it, but it feels like it was the opposite, that he refused to be constrained by it. It wasn't any special ability that allowed him to do so; just his strength of will.

With his departure, I feel as if a great weight is lifter from my very being.

And rather than be a cause for concern, it brings a fundamental question to mind:

Who am I?

As the question pops into my head, it begins to take on a life of its own, searing my brain…

I investigate the wall that Leo disappeared through.

It's just a concrete wall at the end of the hallway. About the only thing on the floor is dust.

But I am positive there must be something here, because Leo walked through the wall.

It would be so easy to turn around, go back down the hallway, and pretend nothing happened.

But there are still things I need to know.

I have no memories.

That means I've never had anywhere else to go but here. No place to return to.

What was it that Leo said?

"No matter how enjoyable the detour, eventually one must return to their appointed path."

That's what he said, didn't he? Then beyond this wall lies the "appointed path," and the truth.

If I follow him, I'll learn the answers to my questions, even if those asters are painful.

But, ignorance is bliss. Do i Have the fortitude to face the truth and accept it?

I rub my eyes, willing the strain things I have seen to go away.

I think that whatever lies past the wall is beyond my comprehension.

I'd rather live my life in peace, even without my memories, than see what's beyond.

In addition to an excruciating headache, a painful jolt of electricity courses through my body.

I can't move… my body… My consciousness…rapidly…fading…

In this brief moment of time, I feel as if someone is talking to me…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap254.jpg

What does that mean… Immediately after thinking that, my consciousness ceases-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap241.jpg

Something's different.

Down to the floors and the walls, the school has changed the very substance of its being.

For some reason, reality cracking this way is intensely disturbing.

This world around me is more real than a painting, but not even as real as a sand castle.

I feel like it's so brittle I could tap it and the echo would shake this whole world.

Where the boring concrete wall once stood, now there's a doorway that I can freely walk through.

It's an entrance. No, an emergency exit, like stairs to the outside,

It's not something of this world.

I have no doubt that the world the door leads to is utterly alien.

Whatever awaits inside, whatever shape it takes, there's a certain sort of finality to seeing it.

Ultimately, I've already committed to this path.

I bid farewell to the false world and take my first step along the appointed path.

Not noticeable, a green light appeared in the background. Hard to see even on the PSP screen.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap270.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap271.jpg

Beyond the door seems to be a dismal looking scrap yard.

Out in front of me is the smooth skinned effigy. While trying to figure out exactly what to do with it-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap274.jpg

A voice comes out of nowhere.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap276.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap277.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap278.jpg

The motivations of the owner of that voice won't worry me, but it's obvious I won't learn anything by standing here.

Also, there is no longer a path by which I can return.

-I have no choice but to head into the darkness with only this strange doll as protection.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap284.jpg

-I made it.

Within the deepest depths of the world beyond the door-

This place must be the goal I'm supposed to reach. At least, that's what I thought.

It's stifling, the aura of purity that seems to act as a ward against corrupted spuls who'd try to enter.

…The feeling is familiar. It has the feeling of a chapel where the spirits of the deceased still linger.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fate Extra Day 3/snap291.jpg

At first I didn't notice, being overwhelmed by the grandeur of the room, but to one side is a young man in a familiar uniform, lying still on the ground.

I call out to him, but there is no reply. I shake him in an attempt to wake him up earn I notice-

He is stone cold.

I go as pale as the corpse before me and I can no longer think coherently. All I can do is stare in bewilderment.

It is at this moment-

I didn't stand a chance against that thing… It seems I wasn't qualified to be here.

Me? Qualifications? That's right- I should know everything by now. The truth has to be here…

But…now…

*Sigh*… Everything's going dark.

I'm not really scared. The only feeling that remains in me is regret.

Even at the very end, I was unable to remember anything about myself.

…Someone…anyone… If you make it beyond here, please don't forget…my name…

My headache worsens day by day,
until it finally buzzes in my head
like an alarm.

That day. In potent numbness, I
wake up twice as fast as normal.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap332.jpg

I may wind up back in bed if I
let go and faint-

For some time, I have been embracing
a rush of useless information.

The normal stuff you'd see at a
school, like the hustle and bustle
of my classmates by the entrance.

It hasn't changed.

It hasn't changed.

-When I push the thought, my field
of vision fizzles.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap340.jpg

There's a boy in a black uniform
in front of the school gate.
He's my friend/as I recall.
He's Issei Ryuudo/as I recall.

I remember this from the first time.
When Issei notices me looking at
him, he pushes through the crowd.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap343.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: Hmm? Why do you look so surprised?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: We announced at last week's assembly that this month the student council would strictly enforce school rules.

He runs through his spiel, as if
this was the first time he'd ever
disclosed the information.

I already know this.
I know it.
I already know what happens.
It's happened more than once.

I'm seized by a headache. I'm so
dizzy I feel like I'm being forcibly
logged out of my consciousness.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: First le me check your student ID. I shouldn't need to remind you, but it should be on you at all times.

My log-in ID is being checked.

It's so obvious now.

I answer clearly to the question
that usually makes me go dizzy.

breakfast this morning.

I feel nauseous because of the
world around me.

It's repeating itself over and over,
and that's making me sick-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap359.jpg

I want him to get out of my way.
I want this repetition to stop.
I push him aside and go forward.

I'm not nice about it either.

He keeps on talking loudly, even
though he's facing no one.

I have a headache.
I'm shivering.
I know one thing for sure.

This is wrong. This is not the
school I know! It can't be!

I have to go.
I have to hurry and wake up.
Or else it will be too late.

But, who am I- awakening for-

Evening.

There is also someone trailing
behind him. It looks like… one
of my classmates.

The more I think, the more I realize
that Leo isn't the only anomaly I've come
across the campus. There are other
things that seem…off…as well.

It's becoming clearer now.
There are people who shouldn't exist.
Students that mysteriously vanish.
The fabric of reality is coming unraveled.

No choice but forward. To the 1st year hallway.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap021.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: The attention to detail is quite impressive. Even the surrounding air is surprisingly substantial

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: If that is the case, this world is in some ways more real than the real world it represents.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: How about you guys? What are your thoughts on this?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap026.jpg

Leo gives me a smile with no hostility.

However, I have the suspicion that
there is something malicious
behind his smile.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Attending school wasn't half-bad. I've never had the opportunity to go to one before now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: In that respect, this has been quite an interesting experience.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: …However, the time for fun has come to an end. I did not come here to play at being a student.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: No matter how enjoyable the detour, eventually one must return to their appointed path.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: And for me, the time to do so has arrived…

With those final words, Leo turns his back on me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap036.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: No, that's not quite right. I don't think farewell would be accurate in this situation.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: For reasons I cannot explain, I have the distinct feeling that we will see each other again.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: So I guess I should use the more congenial, "See you later."

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Well, it's time for me to move on, I wish you the best of luck.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap041.jpg

Get near the door.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap050.jpg

The atmosphere changes.

There's a doorway, an entrance,
where the concrete wall used to be.

It's not something of this world.

There's no doubt this door leads
to someplace unfathomable.

I bid farewell to the false world,
and take my first step toward
the truth.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap058.jpg

It is to be my sword and shield for
what lies ahead… A disembodied voice
suddenly confirms my thoughts.

Although I have yet to learn
anything, I need to do something
besides stand there.

At the very least, there might be
some clues to this bizarre experience
up ahead.

-I have no choice but to head into
the darkness with only this strange
doll as protection.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap063.jpg

With a shocking suddenness, a voice
begins speaking. It sounds like it's
coming from the empty sky above.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap072.jpg

Walking to the front leads to a cube.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap073.jpg

???: The illuminated cube in front of you is called an Item Folder.

???:Inside of it is a farewell present of sorts for those about to face the coming trial. Touch it to open it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap075.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap076.jpg

???: But you won't actually fight as you are too fragile. The effigy given to you will fight in your stead.

???: If your effigy is ever destroyed in battle, you will no longer be shielded from harm.

???: To put it bluntly, you will die. So be very careful in battle.

???: But there is no need to be afraid… for now. Just do what I say and you'll be perfectly safe for the time being.

The Dungeon Theme is Dinosaur bones as seen here.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap130.jpg

To the final room.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap134.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap137.jpg

I go as pale as the corpse before me
and I can no longer think coherently.
All I can do is stare in bewilderment.

It is at this moment-

The fallen effigy lying next to the
male student comes to its feet with
a clatter.

After having to fight several enemy
programs to get here, it's obvious
that this thing is an enemy as well.

Without warning, it suddenly twists
around and comes right at me.

There is a battle. It is a scripted fight, the enemy counters most of the inputs.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap143.jpg

…I can hear the sound of a
distant voice.

???: The time has come. With your inevitable loss, I will consider this round of preliminaries to be over.

-Farewell. I pray you'll find peace in your annihilation.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap148.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap151.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap152.jpg

The guy before me wasn't the only one
to fall. All of the others made it
here and died, unable to do anything.

…And in a very short while, I
suppose I'll become one of them.

-Maybe I should just close my eyes
now. I did all that I could, so maybe
it'd be better for it to end now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap156.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap158.jpg

Dead End.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap159.jpg

I refuse to give up…
I summon all of my strength in an
attempt to get back on my feet.

However, as I try to move, an
unbearably intense pain shoots
through my entire body.

If that's how it's going to be…
No, if this is…

Video Here
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap163.jpg (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFHAqkDK_Wk)

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap164.jpg

I'm afraid.
I'm afraid of the pain.
I'm afraid of losing my senses,
I'm afraid of becoming a corpse.

…And the most trifling thing:
Disappearing without a trace for any
reason at all.

It's not right that I disappear here.

My consciousness, shot throughout with
waves of distortion, screams out
against the injustice of it all.

What was the purpose of suffering
through those headaches just to fade
away here and now?

What were they all for it I just fade
away here and now?

-I have to stand up.
It's okay if I'm scared.
It's okay if I'm in pain.
I have to rise above all of that.

Because I have yet to fight of my
own volition and on my own terms!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap173.jpg

???: Well spoken, nameless traveler!

???: Even if the world will never hear of your desire, know that I admire and respect it!

???: Close your hands into fists and raise your head! Your end has yet to come.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap177.jpg

Two doors crumble away and the place is surrounded by blue light.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap194.jpg

Totally confused, I alternate between
staring at the mark on my hand and the person standing before me.

And then-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap199.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap200.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: While I am by your side, have no fear that you may lose your way. Remember that victory is all that matters.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap202.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Master, strike with my sword. Show me the extent of your abilities in this first battle!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap205.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: That wasn't entertaining at all. Considering how long I've waited for such a moment, I am truly unsatisfied.

She continues to talk.
…However, the sound of her voice
doesn't unite reach my ears.

The heat coming from the mark on my hand grew in
intensity during the fight and the resulting pain has
become unbearable and burns through my consciousness.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap213.jpg

???: You can use it to give three orders that must be obeyed. Think of them as disposable strengthening spells.

???: It is also proof of your participation in the Holy Grail War. If you lose it for some reason, you will die.

Once again I hear that voice. I
Somehow manage to ignore the pain
and listen to what is has to say.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap217.jpg

???: Congratulations. You have endured much to make it here. Now rest for a while; you've achieved your first goal.

???: It was an incredibly clumsy effort to say the least, but that's what made it all the more entertaining.

???: I've had this duty for a long time, but this is the first time I've seen a Master as helpless as you.

???: Nevertheless, be proud of your achievement. Your quick thinking came as a result of nerves and rashness.

Thinking about it, the voice sounds like
that of a thirty year old man.
And it's really irritatingly smug.

For some reason, I can see the owner
of the voice as a pries, dressed in
a somber cassock.

???: Oh, you are curious about my identity? I am honored, But I am insignificant. I am merely a part of the system.

???: I am just a guide, tasked with giving a standard message and given the personality of a prior participant.

???: I am no more than words, no more than the mountain you just conquered, no more than a record of the past.

A record- So if I raise any objections to this voice, does it mean I won't receive any answers in return?

???: Exactly. -Well, this is unexpected. You have received a commendation. Something about you "having a light."

I have no clue who would say such a
thing about me.

…But that short phrase struck my
heart because, for some unknown
reason, I knew the words were sincere.

And as for "I expect good things from
you." It seemed like more of a
command than an encouragement,

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap232.jpg

???: For most, the monotony of everyday life continues without end.

???: Your decision to look beyond the accepted and progress means you have earned the right to exist.

???: However, you have but taken the first step. Be jubilant, young knight, for the Holy Grail War begins now!

I have no idea what he's talking
about. The Holy Grail War…?
The right to exist…?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap237.jpg

???: People called it the "Holy Grail" and fought endlessly in an attempt to gain sole possession of it.

???: This war- The system you find yourself in now is an evolution of those struggles.

???: You stand at the entrance of a deadly struggle where many will perish in pursuit of the Holy Grail.

???: Listen, magi. Had I not bestowed upon the Earth desire, you'd be merely saints capable of committing sin.

???: Now, fight to the death. The fiery throne of heaven will only receive those with the strongest of desires-

The voice reverberates throughout
this hidden chapel, as if were the voice of a god.

Kill…?
Magi…?
Holy Grail that grants wishes…?

These questions, and more, swirl
inside my head and almost seem to
carve themselves into my flesh.

???: In war, a weapon is needed. That is your Servant. They're the spear that pierces, the shield that protects.

???: A Legendary Soul whose purpose is to clear your way to the Grail. That is the one who stands beside you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap248.jpg

I glance over at the young woman in
red standing next to me, who was
looking up into the sky.

She is my Servant…

???: It seems you have decided, and with that decision as payment, I now open the gates to the Holy Grail War.

The marks on my hand, my Command Seal,
once again begin to become
excruciatingly painful.

It's over.
I can't take it anymore.

Falling to the floor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 0/snap255.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%200/snap163.jpg (http://youtu.be/rEmtp5AJCHQ)

…That's right.
I can't give up now.

Even if I'm forced to concede defeat
eventually, it'd be unforgivable to
do so now.

…I feel as if something's wrong.

All of my senses grow faint,

The pain running through my body has
long passed my ability to endure it.
I now know what the damned suffer.

-Even so
I
must stand.

The drive to go on is something I do
not understand. It's not like the fear
of death is urging me to not give up.

I just want to be at peace. Keeping
that in mind, why am I trying with all
of my might to get back on my feet?

I cannot figure out the reason why.
I don't know why my life needs to be
ended. Why am I here-?

-I understand now.
That must be the reason why.

There were those many corpses.
There were those many questions.

Now-
I can't continue without knowing.

No.

Now that my spirit has been awakened,
I cannot allow things to come to an
end without knowing…!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%200/Archer/snap000.jpg

???: You question your own existence even as is comes to an end, and see you own shortcomings as death approaches.

???: Very well. I expect much from that spirit of yours. There's a Servant left that fits a human like you.

???: A nondescript Legendary Soul fighting for a nameless Master. -I look forward to your valiant efforts in battle.

Two doors break and the place is filled by blue light.

The sound of breaking glass is accompanied by a
light cutting through the gloom. I manage to move
my weary body and aching head to see what's happening.

I didn't notice it before, but
something was slowly rising up from
the floor in the middle of the room.

That form-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%200/Archer/snap004.jpg

It appearance isn't much different
from that of a human being, but something was different. Clearly so.

The power emanating from it
transcended that of any human, or of
any enemy I've faced in getting here.

An awesome power that seems as if it'd
vaporize anyone it touched swirls
within my body almost against my will.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%200/Archer/snap005.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Showing self-restraint is difficult, regardless of one's age. I guess I'll just flounder around pointlessly.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%200/Archer/snap007.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: …*sigh* It pains me to acknowledge it, but since you're the only one here…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Let me ask, just to be sure. Are you my Master?

Yes

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%200/Archer/snap010.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: But a contract is a contract, I'll lend you my power if you want and will fight for you until your wish ends.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg:You were just shouting "Why?" a moment ago. There are very few people who know the answer to that question-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: -Well, it's not a bad wish, per se. I now pledge that I will fight by your side until your wish ceases to be.

He takes a hold of my hand and helps
me to my feet.

From the hand he had grabbed comes a
sudden warmth…and then a sharp pain,
like I've been cut by a knife.

On the back of my hand, as though
tattooed, is a strange symbol that
looks like some kind of crest.

Totally confused, I alternate between
staring at the mark on my hand and the person standing before me.

And then-

Archer defeats the thing on 1.16 rounds.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%200/Archer/snap019.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Sounds like an Old Priest.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: So you won't answer anything?

???: Indeed. Oh someone says you have a light.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: I have a what now?

???: Object that grants any desire, fight for it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Not getting it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%200/snap164.jpg

I'm afraid.
I'm afraid of the pain.
I'm afraid of losing my senses,
I'm afraid of becoming a corpse.

…And the most trifling thing:
Disappearing without a trace for any
reason at all.

It's not right that I disappear here.

My consciousness, shot throughout with
waves of distortion, screams out
against the injustice of it all.

What was the purpose of suffering
through those headaches just to fade
away here and now?

What were they all for it I just fade
away here and now?

-I have to stand up.
It's okay if I'm scared.
It's okay if I'm in pain.
I have to rise above all of that.

Because I have yet to fight of my
own volition and on my own terms!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%200/Caster/snap001.jpg

???: I have absolutely no idea of who you are or where you're from, but your lamentation, your perseverance-

???: While the other gods choose to ignore you, your cries have reached my ears!

???: And with the god Uka-no-Mitama as my witness, I say it's too early for this one to go on to the realm of the dead.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%200/Caster/snap005.jpg

The sound of breaking glass is accompanied by a
light cutting through the gloom. I manage to move
my weary body and aching head to see what's happening.

I didn't notice it before, but
something was slowly rising up from
the floor in the middle of the room.

That form-

It appearance isn't much different
from that of a human being, but something was different. Clearly so.

The power emanating from it
transcended that of any human, or of
any enemy I've faced in getting here.

An awesome power that seems as if it'd
vaporize anyone it touched swirls
within my body almost against my will.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%200/Caster/snap006.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%200/Caster/snap007.jpg

Yes

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: To be honest, I, the might Ta- I mean, I hoped that I could be a Servant to someone like you!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Oh, my abilities might be a tad limited so you might not be happy with me, Master, but… I'll try my best!

She takes a hold of my hand and helps
me to my feet.

From the hand she had grabbed comes a
sudden warmth…and then a sharp pain,
like I've been cut by a knife.

On the back of my hand, as though
tattooed, is a strange symbol that
looks like some kind of crest.

Totally confused, I alternate between
staring at the mark on my hand and the person standing before me.

And then-

So hey people the tutorial video is finally up.

(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_cuZ-sGac8)Also, since the next update contains a lot of images (429 screenshots, still need to transcribe, it comes down to 150∼180 on the post) getting a new page wouldn't be bad, just saying.

Welcome to the Holy Grail War.
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap002.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap003.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap004.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap005.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap006.jpg

The sky burn.

Houses collapse into ruin.

People fall to the ground.

Roads come to an end.

The conflict started here.
With this, the world that was
will be restored.

It is here that "I" alone
had survived.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap014.jpg

This must be a nightmare.
This had to be somewhere;
it could be anywhere,

these events that occurred in
the true memories of childhood.

Childhood 'accident' - check.

A torrent of blood flows, and a
voice resonating with bitter
resentment can be heard.

Lives fade away without a thought.
Friends, family, strangers: All gone.
Soldiers with guns,
families trying to hold together,

a grotesque struggle to the last,
until a gentle peace descends
as death comes to claim them.

-I could not accept all I have
seen. The question of "why?"
never left me.

Even with the divide between
conflict and catastrophe, why
did such a tragedy occur?

No, more importantly-
Why has this world been turned
into a hell on Earth?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap023.jpg

A gentle rain begins to fall.
All things once living fade away,
leaving only one behind.

Amidst the helplessness and
despair, their soul's last
feelings are of rage and regret.

The rain wets their cheeks as
their eyes close one last time,
dying forgotten and alone.

Seeing this, I struggle to rise
from the depths of death. I will
not accept what I have been shown.

If I can live again,
I will definitely-

But there are no second chances.
And before long, the rain has
cleansed the scorched earth.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap033.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap037.jpg

With that, I wake up in the
nurse's office. I must've
collapsed and was brought here.

Woke up in hospitalNurse's Office - check.

So was that world, the effigy
that blocked my way, and that
Servant… all a dream as well?

No this nurse's office is far
different than the one I knew.
It's similar,but off, somehow.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap041.jpg

Rescued by magus while in hospital Nurse Office - Guess not. 2 out of 3 ain't so bad.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap042.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best2.jpg: While you were unconscious, I had naught to do but stare at you while you slept.

The overwhelming, unforgettable
presence of someone suddenly
appears beside my bed-

What I think to be a valiant
young man garbed in crimson is,
in fact, a young woman.

…But as this being is not human,
any normal conclusion based on
gender or looks would be moot.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap046.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best3.jpg: Incidentally, you are fully aware of what the Holy Grail War entails, correct?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Holy Grail War?

I've heard mention of it, but
what is it exactly?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap050.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best2.jpg: While pitiful, ignorance is hardly a sin. I shall instruct you as I am able.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best2.jpg: Firstly, the Holy Grail is said to have held the blood of a savior and has the power to grant wishes.

Holy Grail…THAT Holy Grail?
It's the basis of an entire body
of western religious history.

A holy relic said to perform
miracles that became well-known
through the Arthurian cycle.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap055.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best2.jpg: But no matter. The Holy Grail for which you are fighting is a different object altogether.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Early on, the Holy Grail War was the name given to the ceremony magi held to gain the Grail.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: In truth, it was a bloody melee from which the sole survivor would be granted the Holy Grail.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: In simple terms, the tournament you're now in is an approximation of the original Holy Grail War.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap060.jpg

Magi…magus… Although I can
hardly believe that these words
apply to me, it seems that
others think of me as one.

Whatever the case, it sounds
like this Holy Grail War is a
merciless fight for survival.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap063.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best5.jpg: The rules are simple. Two magi are assigned to fight each other using their Servants as weapons.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best5.jpg: The magus who loses to their opponent is striped of both their Command Seals and their life.

My eyes are drawn to my left
hand where I've been marked with
three strange symbols.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap068.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: There are a number of minor rules, but the most important one is: Win. Simple, is it not?

I doubt it's that simple. While
I have a million questions, at
least I know the basics now.

And whether I want to be here or
not, I'm now a participant in
this Holy Grail War nonsense.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap072.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best2.jpg: Now then, do you know what a Servant is?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap074.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap075.jpg

With an irritated expression, the
Servant before me continues to
lecture me with subtle disdain.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap077.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best2.jpg: Only those whose deeds are acknowledged long after their deaths become Legendary Souls.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: The Servants recreated here by the Holy Grail are drawn from those whose legends endure.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Servants are basically soldiers, there to guide and protect the magus who summoned them.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: As per the rules of the original Holy Grail War, Servants are divided into seven classes.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Originally, the classes of Legendary Souls were hidden, but things have changed over time.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap083.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Lancer.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Archer.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Rider.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap087.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Also these classes identify core skills only. Replicating every single skill would be impossible.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: A Legendary Soul's main traits are aligned with a class and then given form.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: It'd be safe to assume that an enemy Servant's class will give you clues about their powers.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Further more, it is said that those of the Saber class are far superior to other Servants.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap092.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap093.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: …I can see your mind is often bereft of oxygen. How can you say I'm anything but a Saber?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best5.jpg: And to imply I'm a mere Rider… Though I am skilled charioteer, I like them not.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap096.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: …I can see your mind is often bereft of oxygen. How can you say I'm anything but a Saber?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap099.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best3.jpg: Yes, you have answered well. I can sense the promise and potential in you.

All options lead to this one.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap101.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best2.jpg: No honorifics are necessary. As you are my Master, I will allow you to adress me as an equal.

Saber… Her personality is going
to be difficult to deal with, but
she's definitely a worthy ally.

Wait… if all Servants are
Legendary Souls, I wonder who
Saber was in real life.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap105.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best2.jpg:…Hmph. But it'd be a disaster if an enemy were to learn my true identity from you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best2.jpg: But if my name were to be known, it wouldn't affect my reolve or my approach to battle.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: I will share my name once I have learned a little more about you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap109.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Although I can't tell you my name, question not the truth of my words. And as for the Holy Grail-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: All I know is that it grants wishes and creates Servants using famous figures from history.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: With you as magus and I as the mightiest of Legendary Souls by your side, the Holy Grail will be ours!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best2.jpg: For now, let that truth put your mind at ease. Allow my sword to clear away all of your doubts-

With that, my Servant disappears
into the ether. However, I can
feel their presence nearby.

They must be staying out of sight
when they're not needed so their
identity can't be compromised.

But how their identity would be
guessed just by their appearance
is beyond me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: Also, all of your memories have been restored by the SE.RA.PH so do not worry.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: Any magi that seek the Holy Grail have their memories supressed and are given those of a student.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: only Masters who managed to recover themselves are allowed to enter the main tournament.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: Now that you have regained your memories, please review them to make sure they're complete.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap124.jpg

That's not right.
Outside of my name, I can't
recall anything of my past.

I realized that everyone around
me was forced to believe they
were normal students…

However, I cannot remember a
single thing that happened to me
before then!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: Your memory restoration failed? I cannot help you. I, Sakura Matou, am just a custodial AI.
My complaints were totally
ignored. It seems that she can't
act beyond her programming.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: Oh, I should give this to you before I forget.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap131.jpg

She gives me some kind of
portable terminal. I assume it's
for getting messages and whatnot.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: As a participant, you should pay attention to any messages that appear on your terminal.

In where the author of this fine and excellent LP will explain stuff.

Let's talk: On the nature of New Game+
Because of how Fate/Extra is structured, it's expected that you are going to play the game at least twice. To make thing easier, the information on enemies, money and formal wear is kept through. There is also a bonus boss but more on that much, much later.

Let's talk: On status

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap143.jpg

Female Student: Seeing as my memories were sealed away during the prelims, I'm surprised I made it this far.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap145.jpg

Male Student: I went up to the rooftop to get a look at the sky. You should take a look; it's pretty wild.

Male Student: They guy's a jerk. It wouldn't be smart to partner with him. He'd stab you in the back, man.

3rd Floor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap190.jpg

Apparently we want to see the rooftop so let's go there.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap194.jpg

The girl pats the walls and floors
murmuring something to herself.

She's… We've never met, but she
can't be anyone but Rin Tousaka.

She has a nice face and figure, gets good grades, and
is popular at Tsukumihara Academy. From what I hear,
she even makes Shinji jealous.

However, she became popular while
the school was at peace. Things
are different now.

That defiant gaze is nothing like
the vacant smile of a popular kid.

The Holy Grail War-

Before I knew it, the school had
been turned into a battlefield.
Rin knows it, too.

…Yeah, I hadn't registered it
before, but we're all predators
now. It's kill or be killed.

I have to acknowledge that as the
truth, even if I don't want to.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap204.jpg

Her eyes soften as she looks at me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch2.jpg: Yeah, you. Hmm, I haven't checked the NPCs out much yet.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch2.jpg: Aha, I know a simple way. Don't you move.

Unexpectedly, her fingers reach
out and touch my cheek.

Such thin, delicate fingers.

I realize how remarkable it is
that so strong a gaze can come
from so innocent a frame.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch2.jpg: Imagine that. You're warm, though you shouldn't be.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: …Huh? That's weird, seeing a red cheek flush like that…

Her face is just three centimeters
from the tip of my nose. *Badump*
My heart races at the closeness.

Her breath exhales warmly against
my cheek and her hair tickles my
bare neck.

Her pat-down of my shoulders and
stomach seems playful compared
to the harsh gaze from earlier.

Transfixed, I'm unable to move as
her pale fingers slide over me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Interesting.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: You're more well-built than I had expected. You look and feel real. Maybe more real than most people.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap220.jpg

She looks behind her, scowling.

Although invisible, her Servant
must be there.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap223.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap224.jpg

She must be thinking about it now,
because she's blushing. As am I.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap226.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap227.jpg

I'm pretty sure she was addressing
an off-color comment coming from
her Servant there.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap229.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap230.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Nothing but a blank look on your face, even now. Were the prelims too boring to jog your memories?

…She touched on a subject that
I would rather not think about,
even in jest.

It kind of grinds me to a halt.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap234.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Once you enter the Holy Grail War, the only way out is to win.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Leaving prematurely isn't allowed.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Even without memories, or previous battle experience, you still have to fight.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: …Oh well. It doesn't matter. You'll be defeated in the Holy Grail war soon enough.

As the concern disappears from her
voice, I glimpse the real Tousaka,
my opponent in the Holy Grail War.

It isn't personal. She considers
everyone in the Holy Grail War
her enemy.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap241.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best2.jpg: Those are fighting words, Master. When we meet her in battle, I will give her my answer to them.

Unlike my servant, I have no witty
response to my future rival.

I have to win.

Now that I know what's at stake,
I have to win.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: We're not cracking into the system and destroying, we're hacking.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: I don't know what's on the other side of the SE.RA.PH's wall once it goes down.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Did your soul get jarred after you made it to the main event?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: If it's lost or unreadable, then how about you investigate later?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Well, in any case, you don't look like you're cut for fighting.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Thanks to excitement, or nerves, everything feels unreal. No matter if you have memories or not.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: You can't help feeling like you're in a dream. It'll be hard to win feeling so disoriented.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap256.jpg

All I know is that I'm a Master,
with a Servant at my command.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap258.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap259.jpg

Student talking.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap260.jpg

Male Student: My first opponent is Tousaka, but I'm not too worried about it. I'll take her out in a flash.

He's dead.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap262.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap263.jpg

Male Student: Don't worry, you don't have to pretend. We're both using the plain default avatars.

Male Student: People with custom avatars like Tousaka and Shinji must have some seriously mad skills.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap266.jpg

Female Student: Everyone looks so strong. I hope I can keep up.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap268.jpg

Female Student: What? You don't know who you're fighting? You'd better go find Father Kotomine.

2nd Floor

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap270.jpg

Male Student: It's more surprising that Tousaka's participating in this Holy Grail War. It's sobering.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap272.jpg

Female Student: He's definitely not human. Well, he's not humane, at least.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap274.jpg

Male Student: Your Servant's pretty awesome, too. It's invisible, but I can tell.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap276.jpg

Male Student: Oops, excuse me. I just happened to be learning about my Servant. He's only a minor hero…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap278.jpg

Female Student: Oh… You haver amnesia. This isn't your school. It's the staging area for the Holy Grail War.

Female Student: And we, the student council members, will be assisting Masters such as yourself along the way.

Female Student: So, don't hesitate to talk to us. May victory be yours.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap282.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap283.jpg

Female Student: All the information you gather ends up there, so I recommend you review it on a regular basis.

Rooftop. Rin seems to want to talk.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: I sati already, but we're at war and you're my enemy. I have no desire to be your friend…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap290.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap291.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch4.jpg: If it's only about the basics, I'll tell you what I can. That should be enough, right?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch4.jpg: Beyond the basics, you're on your own. Poke around the SE.RA.PH if you need more specific info.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap294.jpg

The other option just skips all this infodump.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: …That's right; you have no clue about anything. Let me start from scratch then.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap296.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: With that being said, it works on a level far removed from super computers and networked clusters.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap298.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: But in this place, there are more than a hundred currently in existence.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Imagine the power needed to just run the preliminaries, with all of the necessary NPCs, etceteras.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Things here are so anomalous that it requires god-like hacking skills just to gain access.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: And to be able to digitize yourself and exist here requires that you be a magus-level hacker.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: So, are you okay with what I've told you up until now?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Ooookay then… So what do you want to know about first?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap305.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap306.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Since I've never actually seen it in person, I can't fill you in on all the details.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: However, I can safely say that it does exist and its power to grant wishes is beyond doubt.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap310.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Even dismissing rumor, the power inherent in the Holy Grail is enough to change reality.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: And only the last Master standing will enter the center of the SE.RA.PH and claim the Holy Grail.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: This is why all Masters are enemies. Of course, this includes you and me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap314.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap315.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Normal hackers enter systems using a program, but methods used by a magus are far more advanced.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: A magus will digitize their soul and then insert themselves into virtual worlds such as this one.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: That lets them process sat instantaneously, which would be impossible for normal hackers.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap319.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Born into it… -Yes, that sounds right. Magi are ons who are born with the necessary "circuits."

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap322.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Why un the hell are you asking about me? I have no desire to even pretend to be your friend.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Ah. You think I'll say something that'll give you an edge. Maybe you're not completely stupid.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: However, it's a moot point as you won't get out of the first round. You're way too soft and weak.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Although I'm no better, seeing how much time I've wasted trying to help you. How depressing…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: *Sigh* I still owe you for molesting you. I'll help you with the basics, but that's it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap328.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap329.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Well that's everything then. Don't bother me with anymore of your stupid, pointless questions!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Remember that you and I are enemies. Even a temporary alliance between us would end badly.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Instead of hanging out here, you should be using the time left to you more responsibly.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap335.jpg

Male Student: Making it to the final round's going ti be though. Everyone here is the best of the best.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap337.jpg

Female Student: Honestly, you look really absent-minded. You'd better pull it together if you want to win.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap339.jpg

Male Student: I have to gather as mush information as possible for my honey.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap341.jpg

Female Student: Behold the terrifying power of Love! Maybe you should find someone to help you out, too!

So how many rounds before one of them bites it?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap343.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap344.jpg

Female Student: I was going to tell you, but you're right. That'd be pure idiocy on my part, wouldn't it?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap349.jpg

Female Student: That the SE.RA.PH is nothing more than a virtual world created solely for the Holy Grail War.

Female Student: It's one of those things that you have to see to believe, right? It's pretty amazing…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap352.jpg

Male Student: Kotomine might have already told you, but the Holy Grail War is divvied into seven rounds.

Male Student: Until a winner is declared, we of the student council are here to support your efforts.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap355.jpg

Enough playing around, let's go and talk with Kotomine.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap356.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: You may call me Father Kotomine. I am an NPC assigned the task of supervising the Holy Grail War.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap358.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: The war is run as an elimination tournament, which the Grail being awarded to the last person standing.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: In other words, the participating Masters will kill each other until there is only one person left.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: Simple enough to understand, yes? Even a complete idiot should be able to understand the rules.

Ouch.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: Masters get a six day preparation period before Elimination Battles, which occur on the seventh day.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: I'd advise you to use the time given to devise the most efficient means to slaughtering your foe.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: On the seventh day, you and your doe will fight. The winner lives, and the loser is… deleted.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: You have chosen your Servant to use as a weapon for that very purpose, have you not?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Preparation Period?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg; Of course, the other Masters are given the same time to prepare for battle, and to kill.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: As for how to prepare, I cannot help you. Do whatever you feel is necessary.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: It is the course of wisdom to pay heed to any message you may receive.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: Hmm… Wait just a moment…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: …Strange. There seems to be a system error. I will locate your opponent by tomorrow.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: One last thing… Masters that continue to advance will be given a private room.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap380.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: For today, concentrate on becoming accustomed to the inner workings of the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: The Arena entrance uses the same door you went through during the preliminaries. Good luck.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Thank you! you've made my day. So, my favorite kendo sword has up and disappeared.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: I stashed it in the supply room, but it somehow managed to find its way into the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Since I can't go in there, I need you to get my kendo sword and hand it over during the first round.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: I'm not here all the time, so you'll want to check back every now and then. Thanks again!

Let's talk: On Taiga Quests.
All of them involve searching for something in the arena. However the objects appear after you have talked to Taiga. While they are not obligatory, you are rewarded for your efforts. Making all of the quests and being on a 2nd playthrough gives you the chance to fight the bonus boss.

Anyway to 2-B.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: This room is rather dreary, but we endure what we must.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: I shall make it my audience chamber. If you have any grievances, you may adress them to me here.

I'm relieved at both Saber's good
mood and the fact that my private
room was prepared.

I should come back here when I
want to talk to Saber.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: What's wrong? You should be already accustomed to this school. Stop your running about, and relax as I have.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best3.jpg: Though- I sympathize with having nerves on one's first campaign. Cherish that fleeting feeling.

Let's talk: On My Room.
Simply put, the place where your servant hangs out. You can come and talk with them. You can also save.

To the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap400.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: I recommend that you complete all your shopping and data gathering before entering the Arena.

Let's talk: On the Arena.
The dungeons really. There are enemies, there are treasures. Your servant will make comments through the crawling.

Let's talk: On Formal Wear.
The equipment that the we can use in the arena. It allows the use of Code Casts.

Video Here.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Enemy programs created by the SE.RA.PH roam the Arena, but fear them not while I am by your side.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: …Since this will be your first time in battle, I recommend not going any further than that enemy there today.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap410.jpg

Let's talk: On Revival Fountains
They recover all Servant HP, MP and Master's MP. Apparently they are all over the place on Easy mode. Wouldn't know, Easy is for sissies.

Let's talk: On A Day.
Days are separated on Morning, Midday, Evening and Night. The first two are usually reserved for plot related events. Evening is when you investigate, enter the arena, etc. Night is just an evaluation of the day's event. Straightforward.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap423.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Because of your deficiencies, I am unable to manifest my full glory.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: But do not worry yourself. Having my original abilities available for use is not important.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best2.jpg: There is no shame in being a novice; in fact, the possibilities of what you may become are exciting.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Tomorrow we'll make another effort in the Arena, and we'll improve together little by little.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: It's a trivial matter. As long as you have me, we'll keep going.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/snap429.jpg

Next up: We meet our opponent.

Wow. Infodumping just like in the Fate route! Ahem, but, any reason why Something Awful won't work for this purpose?

December 18th, 2011, 09:30 PM
The 3 month rule and I don't have an account on there. All my money goes to videogames you see.

SeiKeo
December 18th, 2011, 09:50 PM
If you wanted me to crosspost it I could. (Has an account)

Hmm, does 3 month rule apply?

Laith
December 18th, 2011, 10:01 PM
I would have to back up everything on Imgur or Tinypic since photobucket doesn't work there I believe, so maybe laterish.

And yeah for LPs there is the three month waiting rule so until February or so. I'll think about it.

Laith
December 19th, 2011, 09:35 AM
The First.
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap000.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap002.jpg

When I remove it, I see some words
displayed on the screen.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap004.jpg

Combatant announcement?

That must mean who I'm going to
battle one-on-one with.

I don't fully understand, but I
ought to go to the second floor
bulletin board to find out.

So let's go there.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap008.jpg

The first name is my own.
The other name is-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap010.jpg

Welp.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap011.jpg

At some point during my initial
shock, Shinji came up beside me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap013.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: We're at different levels even though we're friends. But still, I should congratulate you.

Oh he still cares-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: -Hey didn't you just barely squeak through the prelims? I guess you're a charity case.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: I guess being mediocre has its advantages. You get all of these handicaps and whatnot.

-Or maybe not. We are not his bro anymore I guess.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Keep in mind that this tournament is all about true strength, so don't get too overconfident.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap018.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: Come on, I mean forcing people to give up friendships in order to win? That's pretty insane.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: Oh what a cruel mistress fate can be, right? Even me, the strongest Master here, is pained by this…

After that little outburst,
Shinji puts on a plastic smile
and pats me on the shoulder.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap022.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap023.jpg

…I have to fight Shinji and
his Servant.

No matter how many times I repeat
myself, the meaning of the words
fail to register in my brain

Do I have to kill a friend, a
fellow human being, when I don't
have any clue as to why?

This whole situation has fast
become a nightmare.

If Shinji is making light of the
situation, why do I feel like
I'm trapped in Hell…

Evening.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap029.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap030.jpg

Primary cipher key…?

-What is that supposed to be?

I guess it's supposed to be a key
of some kind…

It'd be a good idea to ask that
priest from before, Kotomine, about
messages received via my terminal.

He did say that all participants
have the right to ask about any of
the basic rules of the tournament.

Before that, as always, Student talking.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap036.jpg

Male Student: Mark my words: If she sees me as cannon fodder, she'll be absolutely insufferable…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap038.jpg

Male Student: Man, I thought all we had to do was fight Elimination Battles.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap040.jpg

Female Student: I wonder what happens if you're locked out of the battlefield. Do you lose by default.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap042.jpg

Female Student: He's really strong. There's a reason why he's such a famous hacker. Well good luck with him.

Before continuing let's visit Saber.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap044.jpg

How friendly.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap045.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap046.jpg

Female Student: I'm going to look for it in the Arena. I wanna get this over and done with ASAP.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap048.jpg

Male Student: It's like they want you to prove that when they say "jump," you say "how high?"

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap050.jpg

Female Student: But what happens if you run into your opponent in the Arena?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap052.jpg

Male Student: Is something amazing going to happen once I collect them?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap054.jpg

Female Student: You should be able to code cast and use items in the Arena, too.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap056.jpg

Female Student: You can check the terminal menu to see how many cipher keys you've obtained, if you don't remember.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap058.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: Once preparations have been completed, you will receive a notification via your terminal.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap060.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap061.jpg

Male Student: At the very least, you should grab a return crystal. I know having one saved my butt.

Male Student: The commissary is located just down these stairs there.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap064.jpg

Female Student: I can't believe that the Harways actually entrusted their fortunes to a mere child. How pathetic.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap066.jpg

Male Student: It seems like the Arena is set up so only you and your opponent can be inside at one time.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap068.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap069.jpg

Female Student: It cannot be stressed enough that obtaining information on your opponents is the key to victory.

Female Student: Any information you will automatically be entered into your Information Matrix

Female Student: Be sure you check your Matrix every noe and then. Here, ignorance can be fatal.

Let's check out that then.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap084.jpg

Let's Talk: On Enemy Matrix.
As you can see, we lack information on everything except the Master. The idea is to try and change that. How we do that, comes later on this update.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap073.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap074.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap075.jpg

Female Student: Ah, my delectable little Servant, I'm going to do my best! My absolute best!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap077.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap078.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: Healing supplies can be provided once a round to every Master.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: Please don't forget to come by when you have a spare moment!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap081.jpg

Let's talk: On Sakura.
This is pretty much everything that she does. At the start of the week you visit her and she gives a healing item. Not much but hey free stuff.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap082.jpg

Female Student: I can only imagine the romantic impulses of those in the past who assigned meanings to flowers.

To Kotomine.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap085.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: Earlier, the computer registered that your Primary Trigger has been generated did it not?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: Two triggers must be retrieved by the end of watch week, if you mean to participate in the tournament.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap088.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: A trigger, or cipher key, is a key to the Coliseum- and a way to cull weak Masters.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: All Masters are required to obtain them during the course of the preparation period.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: Fail to obtain the Triggers in the allotted time, and it will be…game over…as it were.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: Don't look so worried. It's a simple task to prove you're ray for the Elimination Battle.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Two?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: The Arena itself will be divided into two floors.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: And one Trigger, or cipher key, is generated per floor. So obviously, that results in two per match-up.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: It's the job of the Master to go and retrieve these cipher keys.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: For convenience, everyone refers to them as Primary Trigger and Secondary Trigger.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: You will be notified through your portable computer terminal when a Trigger generates.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: I know.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap101.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: If for some reason a fight occurs, the system will shut it down within three turns.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: As a penalty, the status of any Master caught fighting on campus will be downgraded.

And that's that. Well to the Arena then. But before, there is someone on the 1st floor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap104.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: A total cretin like you won't be able to find it, but good luck anyway! Hahaha!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap106.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best5.jpg: His total lack of respect and maturity is truly disgusting! He needs to be thoroughly beaten.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best5.jpg: Master, let us be on out way. Anything I do must be perfect, down to the smallest detail.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best5.jpg: I will educate that vermin as to the extent of his sin against us with the blade of my sword.

Well you hear the lady, to the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap110.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: But this may be a good chance to obtain information. Why don't we follow them while they're in the Arena?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Oh, and be warned that if you miss the chance to learn something, that information may be lost forever.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Also, you can only enter the Arena once a day. Make sure you thoroughly explore it before exiting.

So we walk to where the enemy that Saber didn't want to fight was.

Video Here (Important stuff in here)
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap114.jpg (http://youtu.be/R70y6i9iCcU)

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: You never know what will become of such a meeting, but perhaps we can learn more about their plans.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap116.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Hahaha, what's with that look? Your skills are pathetic compared to mine, so don't be so harsh on yourself!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: And speaking of losing, let me introduce my Servant. I'm going to win; it's not like it matters to me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: If you can't get even get your cipher keys, you might as well accept your game over right here and now!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: Seriously, feel free to turn her into a bullet-ridden corpse whenever you feel like it!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap121.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Drunk.jpg: As you can see, when it comes to talking to others, my Master is a total social retard, right?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Drunk.jpg: Seeing him actually having a conversation with you, I though we could settle this peacefully.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap124.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap125.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Drunk.jpg: The darkness of your grubby little soul is impressive, Shinji. Oh yes, I expect a generous reared later!

There is a battle. It lasts three turns as Kotomine said, we barely put a fight. See the video to see how bad it is. It is bad.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap127.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: you know, I like seeing you grovel in the dirt like trash. Beg hard enough and I might make you my underling.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: Who knows…I might even share some of the prize money with you. Hahahahaha!

They teleport away. They probably use a Return Crystal.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap130.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best5.jpg: However, it was foolhardy of him to exhibit the extent of his power merely for sport.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best5.jpg: If his Servant uses projectile weapons it's possible that her class might be Archer, but I'm not 100% sure.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: I guess you're right.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Indeed! A suitable response, Praetor! But do not feel the need to hold back in your praise of me!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Keep in mind that this conflict is also a race against time. We may not see our foes tomorrow, so-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Some information may only available on a specific day. It's imperative you actively explore the Arena often.

Let's check our matrix.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap144.jpg

Let's Talk: On Enemy Matrix pt2.
As it can be seen, we only got a clue, that she may be an Archer, but that's enough to start narrowing down her identity.

Exploring the Arena we find this.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Is that Formal Wear, Master? It's a good thing you've managed to obtain some.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Most formal wear is infused with powerful special abilities referred to as Code Casts.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap151.jpg

And we also find what Taiga wanted.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap155.jpg

We also fight the enemy that Saber refused to fight, it is easy. And we find a this in a folder.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap156.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: So this is a Trigger. Kotomine said that there are two per round, so do not forget to obtain the second one.

And we leave. Spoils of the dungeon crawling not pictured: A level up (lvl 4).

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: If we could get information on them, many plans could be made to get them to taste my blade.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best2.jpg: One cannot be a hero without their name being known. That is why I take great pains to hide my identity.

By the way Saber is lying but we'll get to that later.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Gaining information on the enemy's identity while veiling my own is a sure road to victory.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap166.jpg

And there we go. One Arena 100%'d only 13 more to go.

Next Up: Shinji being Shinji.

If you wanted me to crosspost it I could. (Has an account)

Hmm, does 3 month rule apply?

I think there is also a rule that any LP on Somethingawful has to be made for Somethingawful, so crossposting isn't allowed?

Have another update because it is rather short.

Blue and Red.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap001.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap002.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: For that reason, you must drain the campus of information every single day.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: When you enter the Arena, you forfeit any further investigation for that day.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Humans do not replicate their actions, so what you miss one day is gone forever.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: So make a habit of investigating campus ad listening to others before entering the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Do you understand?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: I understand.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Indeed. Then, let us initiate today's investigation.

Student talking is a go.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap010.jpg

Male Student: Just swatch. I'll show her just how much of a ruthless bastard I can be.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap012.jpg

Female Student: The SE.RA.PH will jump in before things get out of hand, but be careful you don't get penalized.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap014.jpg

Female Student: I knew the tournament was risky, but it's still hard to accept that you die if you lose.

Female Student: Entering isn't a casual decision.

Leaving the classroom leads to this.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap017.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap018.jpg

But before.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap019.jpg

Female Student: It doesn't happen all the time, but don't you find it interesting?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap021.jpg

Male Student: Shinji ought to leave people who aren't his opponent alone.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap023.jpg

Male Student: He's the kind of guy you have to watch out for, you know?

Visiting Saber again.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap025.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Hmm? Do you not understand? Your commands allowed me the flawless victory I deserve.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: I feel on top of the world after that perfection in swordplay! I have underestimated your skills.

Let's talk: On EXTRA chatter.
After meeting some sort of requirement, for example not receiving any damage on a battle, your Servant will make a comment about it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap028.jpg

Female Student: I don't know her personally, but I hear she's a real queen B. I feel sorry for her opponent.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap030.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap031.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Interesting place, isn't it? I thought it was amazing at first, but it's really pretty primitive.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: It's like an ocean pulled from a story. I even saw a Master who managed to summon Armstrong.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Sorry, I was just messing with you. I dig the sea them. Overall the game's pretty well done.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: What's this? you actually managed to summon a decent Servant, then.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Asia's premiere hacker, Shinji Matou?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap037.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: With her armada to back me up, I'm invincible. Nothing you can do will be able to even touch me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap039.jpg

That elegant voice can only be
Rin Tousaka's. Only she can
crush Shinji's pride with a word.

Shinji's face goes bright red as
he suddenly realizes how big of
a mistake he just made.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap042.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: B-But is it really?! I might just be lying. You might want to forget what I said.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap044.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: However, a class that controls an armada and is tied to a ship will thin out the candidates some.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: How will she attack? Bombardment, or a frontal assail? It'll definitely be physical in nature.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot3.jpg: Gah…!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch2.jpg; Well, I guess the only thing left for me to do is prepare a great many physical barriers.

Shinji's face goes from bright
red to a terrifying shade of
blue right before my eyes.

Once you learn something about
an enemy Servant, you can begin
to make plans to defeat them.

If both sides are strong, but
only one side plans, the results
of the battle would be obvious.

So that's what they mean by knowledge
is power. I understand
perfectly now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap053.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch4.jpg; I mean, others will start making references to that, right? Won't that just piss off your Servant?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap055.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap056.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: There's a good chance that you and I will never have to face each other.

With that final pathetic attempt
at a comeback, Shinji turns and
starts walking away.

And of course he is heading in
my direction. As I wasn't hiding,
Shinji sees me right off.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap060.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot3.jpg: H-Heh… Well, it's not like you can stop the Invincible Arm- Err…I mean my Servant.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: Whatever…my victory is all but assured. Catch you later. Oh, and try to not to disappoint me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap063.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap064.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Though difficult, it is vital that we scour the Arena and the campus for valuable information.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Investigating out foe was the correct course of action, just as I said.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Yes it was.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap068.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: to make sure we don't overlook anything, we should continue our searches of the Arena and campus.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: More infocould come to light with every new day. Do not allow your diligence to flag, ever!

Well Matrix check.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap071.jpg
tons. Its might was such that it earned Spain the
reputation of being "The Kingdom on which the sun
will never set."

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap073.jpg

Female Student: I tried to sneak attack just now, but the SE.RA.PH intervened.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap075.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap076.jpg

Female Student: Billy the Kid…? Calamity Jane… No, I'm sorry, that isn't right.

His Servant doesn't look much
like an old west outlaw.

But, then what in the world could
his Servant's identity be?

In any case, I have to return to
my own investigation. I really
don't know enough yet.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap081.jpg

Male Student: Hmmm… I could see that being Date Masamune…

Male Student: Tough question, man. But, it's kind of fun to brainstorm all the possible answers.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap084.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap085.jpg

Through the might of its navy, Spain
was seen as the -kingdom on which
the sun will never set-.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap088.jpg

Female Student: I suggest you have multiple save files in case something comes up. Good Masters prepare for death!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap090.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap091.jpg

Male Student: If my opponent was as clueless and careless as Shinji, my life would be so much easier.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap093.jpg

Female Student: I came across my opponent while in the Arena, so naturally I jumped them, but…

Female Student: Oh my god! My Servant's special attacks were so AWESOME they made my mind melt.

Female Student: See, he switched his blade to his left hand and then… BAM! Done! He's invincible!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap097.jpg

Male Student: I'm not too worried about it. I still have four days left to get them both,

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap099.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap100.jpg

Female Student: Agh, a little more time and I would have made it in!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap102.jpg

Male Student: Using one will let you return to campus at any time. you'll want to have at least one on hand.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap104.jpg

Male Student: I'd better head to the Arena right this instant!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap106.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap107.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap108.jpg

Let's talk: On the shop.
It sells stuff that is sort of good. It takes a while for the really good items appear.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap109.jpg

Female Student: Fighting anyone without enough info is suicide. Especially if that person's Servant is strong.

Female Student: If you don't discover a Master's weakness before effacing them, you're as good as dead.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/snap112.jpg

Male Student: I was starting to wonder… Why am I doing all of her work? …Keep this to yourself, okay?

Anyway that's all the Student talking to to the Arena.

In where I just enter and leave since I don't wanna be overleveled, but here have the first Arena map.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/Map1-1.jpg

No evaluation either, Saber is just sleeping. You can actually hear her snore, it's rather cute.

Evening the odds.

Video Here
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap000.jpg (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95SPfrAchwA)

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap003.jpg

Within a small group of gathered
Masters, one person stands out
like a sore thumb.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap005.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: I believe that I remarked that we would meet again.

It's Leo. The force of his
presence overwhelms his seemingly
innocent appearance.

Before, it felt like he was a
wolf let loose in the chicken
coop. Now, I feel out of place.

And he sin't alone. Behind him
stands a shadowy figure radiating
the same aura of strength.

The figure is clad in armor and
armed with a sword. His aura
marks him… as a Servant!

It reminds of old comics, that bit of narration.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap011.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: …Oh, Gawain? Ah, how forgetful of me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Gawain. Introduce yourself.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap014.jpg

As the armored figure nods in
greeting, an enigmatic smile
forms on his lips.

He is the exemplar of knighthood
and, though a Servant, has the
same bearing as his Master.

…Sir Gawain, one of the Knights
of the Round Table mentioned in
the Legends of King Arthur.

It's said that his prowess
rivaled King Arthur's and his
holy sword was equal in power
to Excalibur.

It's obvious that he is a
Saber-class Servant.

It won't be too hard to learn
more about him. Maybe I'll
discover a weakness of his.

I'm sure Leo is awe of how
much information he's given me,
but he seems unconcerned.

It's obvious that he chooses not
to concern himself with such
things as subtlety or tactics.

For him, if something is destined
to be revealed, so be it.

From his point of view, his victory is all
but assured; his superiority over others
reinforced every day since he was born.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap025.jpg

With a polite bow, Leo and his
Servant turn and depart, leaving
me somewhat dumbfounded.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap027.jpg

With that murmured comment, the
murderous glare Rin shot at Leo
was almost palpable.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap029.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: But still, to risk him… Oh well, what was borrowed on Earth will be repaid in Heaven…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Things just got more interesting, although my powers as a magus are far superior to his!

I get the feeling that Leo has
little concur for those like us.

Without so much as sating hi,
the now fired-up Rin Tousaka
almost seems to stomp away.

I should spend some time looking
into Gawain's background. I'll
head to the library later.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap035.jpg

Talking. Students.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap037.jpg

Female Student: I'm not ready at all… Argh, this is so hard I want to give up already!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap039.jpg

Female Student: The enemy Servant may be a Legendary Soul, but you still need to discover who they are.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap041.jpg

Male Student: I don't know what's going on. If you want to find out, go check out the Library.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Tou will never catch even a glimpse of victory if you insist on always running away.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: However, facing a foe you know nothing about is lunacy. In this war, information is everything.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: To defeat your opponent, learn all you can about them. Their class, kills, even their history…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: The more info you have, the easier it will be to create a plan and predict your opponent's actions.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Fow now, why don't you go to the library? There's a treasure trove of information there.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap049.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: No reason, really. I just have a feeling that you'll somehow come out on top.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Matou is an idiot, but he has won before. It'll make things easier if he gets defeated early on.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Anyway, do your best.

Choosing the other one.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap055.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: I know how hard it is for you to show gratitude. That, and I could be just using you, right?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Anyway, do your best.

All leads to this.

I might learn a few things about
Shinji's and Leo's Servants.

I should probably listen to her
advice and go poke around
the library.

Male Student: A little bit of flattery will get him to spill his guts.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap061.jpg

Female Student: Whenever you discover information about your opponent, it will automatically be recorded there.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Oh, who am I kidding?! Ha ha, I'm just messing with you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: The library is the best place to find info. I know all about you, so I expect you to go all out against me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: But enough about me. It looks like you're having a hell of a time finding the book you want.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Unfortunately for you, I've thoughtfully taken every book about my Servant and hid them!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: I though you'd have more fun this way. I hid everything somewhere in the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: I wonder if a weaksauce Master like you will be able to find them.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: By the way, what does your Servant want in return for helping you? Money, right? I knew it!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Do your best… while you still can. Hahahahahaha!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Whelp, see you around. Good luck.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: I hope you'll put up a little more of a fight the next time we meet in the Arena. You're starting to bore me!

How lovable.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap074.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Your first opponent is Shinji Matou, I believe. Be cautious around him, as I hear his Servant is powerful.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Oh it seems you don't fully accept that our previous school life was but a convenient farce.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg.: Let's see. Since fate has made us companions, perhaps I should explain things to you. Shall I?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Yes please, Leo.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Teach me Leo-Sensei

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Let's get started. Do you know what a reality marble is?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: It's a thaumaturgical technique whereby one space is transformed into a completely different space.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Some Servants are able to generate reality marbles.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: As it takes a great deal of energy to sustain a reality marble, most last only a few minutes.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: The school that housed prelims happened to be a reality marble generated by the Holy Grail.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Besides the school as it appeared in the prelims, the current school, the Arena, and the Colliseum…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: All are individual reality marbles created by the incredible magic of the Holy Grail.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: To give you an idea of just how powerful the Holy Grail is…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Even the most advanced supercomputer couldn't sustain one reality marble this length of time.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: All participants in the Holy Grail War had their memories wiped out entering.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Then, the Holy Grail's reality marble gave all the participants school personas to inhabit.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Masters had a time limit of four days to realize that they had been tricked into playing a role.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Potential Masters had to pass that basic test to enter into the Holy Grail War.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: *Chuckle* Although moussaka seemed to shake off her yoke very quickly.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: By the way, Ms. Fujimura and Issei Ryuudou aren't Masters. They're NPCs with specific roles.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: The Masters who did not break free of the fantasy were dealt death.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Tragic but the Holy Grail War itself is a lengthy process of culling the weak.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: A word of advice. LLearn all you can. I assure you the information will benefit you greatly later on.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap097.jpg

Female Student: Be advised that your day will end upon return from the Arena.

Male Student: I think it was… a book about pirates?

Checking the "?" on the bookcase.

-About Gawain-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap102.jpg

Due to his overwhelming nobility and
youthful impetuousness, he placed
his family ties above all else.

It was Sir Gawain's hatred of
Lancelot that eventually led to his
and Arthur's eventual downfall.

It was in the Battle of Camlann
that Sir Gawain fell, slain by
Sir Lancelot.

Note from the author: I may love Rani and she may be my favorite Extra side character but goddamn making her character portrait. And I am still missing one orz.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap110.jpg

I forget that I should not be going to the Arena yet and this happens.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap111.jpg

The second key has been created.
I need to get it before the battle
three days from now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap113.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: The second floor is where you'll find the Secondary Trigger.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: Head to the Arena. You should be able to go to a new floor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: I've said my piece.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: Oh, I almost forgot to ask. Have you set foot in the chapel yet?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: The system's jurisdiction doesn't penetrate that far, but… you can strengthen your Servant there.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: Well, I've said my piece. Go and slaughter to your heart's content.

That in a little bit.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap120.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Um… by the way… I hate to ask you for another favor, but…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Skanky, do you think you can do your lovely teacher one more teensy favor?

We say yes.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Really?! Oh, thank you! Truth be known, I really need a tangerine, stat!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: There should be a tangerine on the second floor of the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: If you could get it for me before the end of the first round, I'd be ecstatic!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: If you manage to get it, I'll give you a fabulous decoration for your private room. Good luck!

Let's talk: On decorations.
By making Taiga requests we get nifty things. Usually on the 6th day.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap127.jpg

Male Student: I suggest that you head over there and see the changes for yourself.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap129.jpg

To the chapel, we can enter this time.

I push open the heavy door to
the chapel and go inside, where
it is dark and eerily silent.

…I get the strange feeling that
this place is completely cut off
from the rest of the world.

There's no one in the pews. As I
get used to the dim light, a
flash of colors hurts my eyes.

Those two women, they don't act
like sisters. And why are they
here anyway?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap134.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap135.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Well, it's not like the details matter. And the more test subjects the better, I always say.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Welcome to the Eden of the East. I assume you're here for an Alteration of the Soul?

Alteration of the Soul?
What is that supposed to mean?

Realizing I have no clue as how
to answer, she continues talking.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: Tou don't know what the Alteration of the Soul is, but you came here anyway? Amateur.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Alteration of the Soul? What is it, you ask? Hmm…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Simply put, you link your souls to your Servant's. When a Master's rank increases,

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: We can strengthen that link. That's done by hacking into each soul and choosing what to improve.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap144.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap146.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: Well, it's like my sister said. My job is to perform Alterations made possible by various events.

Sister…
Are these two really related?

I was about to ask if they were
really sisters, but a sudden wave
of hatred from the two stops me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: You get the gist of it, right? If you want to do an Alteration of the Soul, let me know.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: As for that creature over there, she's totally useless, like 8-track tapes or the C:\ prompt.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: And you're lower than dirt. Don't screw up or the Moon Cell will come down on you…again.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: Gah! How many time do I have to tell you that the Master was at fault…that time!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: They specifically told me to do quasi-legal Alterations, so I added a few… extra skills.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Laugh now, but it wouldn't be funny to the one who lost because of your towering incompetence.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Lesten well, girl. If you value your life, do not put any triust in that -thing's- abilities.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: If I were you I'd stick to regaining the spiritual statuses your Servant may have lost.

Let's talk: On Alteration of the Soul
The way to increase stats. Every time we level up, we get 3 skill points. We add them to any stat we want. STR is attack, END is defense, AGI makes your damage to go to the end of your current power and makes you go first in a Skill vs Skill action, MAG makes your skills stronger and protects you from them and LCK raises the chances for critical hits and defense when you are in the red. Also after certain number of skill points spent you get Skills. More on that later.

We can also talk with the sisters.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap159.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap160.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: *Grumble* I hate having to take Touko's abuse every day. I'll try to control my rage… for now.

Even as she says that, I can see
veins popping put on
Aoko Aozaki's clenched fists.

But aren't you exaggerating a
little? I mean… ten times?

I'm amazed that Aoko didn't
immediately throttle Touko after
her snide and offensive comment

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Why are you so surprised? And I wasn't trying to be snide, merely honest.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: In this case, shutting up and accepting her palce is beneath me is the only thing Aoko can do.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: Grrrrr…

Aoko gnashes her teeth in rage
But if Touko is so talented, why
isn't she doing the Alterations?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: I have other things to attend to. Not to mention all of the stuff Kokutou dumped on me…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Right now, I'm simply keeping an eye on my lowly sister so she doesn't accidentally kill someone.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: So just ignore me. If you need to perform an Alteration of the Soul, ask the monkey over there.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap172.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap183.jpg

THE BEST IDEA.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap185.jpg

When we leave we are interrupted by this.

There's something going on in the
garden. When I go to look, I see
Shinji causing trouble… again.

It appears that Shinji is being
thrown out of the chapel
after angering that old man.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Sorry, my bad! I'm an atheist… swear to god!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: …Hmph. I have always believed that the Japanese were polite. I guess I was misled.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: Leave this place at once. the gates of heaven will remain closed to the unbeliever.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: It appears that in your haste to learn how to fight, you forgot to learn dignity and respect.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap181.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: When it comes time to fight, you can bet your ass I'll be teaching you a thing or two!

Well time to return to Student Talking.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap186.jpg

Male Student: The nurse hands out free stuff occasionally, so I suggest you stop by when you have the time.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap188.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap189.jpg

Male Student: Nice, your left hand. Mine's… uh, it's a tramp stamp. you don't know how embarrassing that is.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap192.jpg

Female Student: The more data contained in your Information Matrix, the better it is for your Servant.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap194.jpg

Female Student: He looked kind of irritated and was talking to himself. Something like "I get it now"…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap196.jpg

Let's talk: On Talking with your Servant: Yellow box edition
So you enter the room where your Servan is and there is a yellow dialog box next to the Speak with [Enter-Servant-Class-here.] option. This means that you can get a special conversation that gives your Servant character development.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap197.jpg

My questions about the Holy Grail
War have only increased since that
moment I made a contract with Saber.

…And the war aside, I still want
to know just who she is.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap200.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Speak, if something concerns you. This is a time for rest, so such distraction is permitted.

Now would be a good opportunity
to ask-
All right-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best2.jpg: I'm surprised. So it seems not knowing my true name has been troubling you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best2.jpg: However… Hmmmmmm. What troubles ME is that you do not worry over the battle to come as I do.

…Though she's admonishing me,
Saber exudes pleasure. She must
be happy that I asked about her
name. She continues speaking.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: It is the pleasure of those with regal natures to dignify the queries of those around them with answers.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Speaking of the past is awkward, but as we have sworn an oath of fidelity, I will tell you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Liesten well! My childhood name was Lu-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap212.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best6.jpg: I told you I would conceal my true name for a time. Falling for such a trick shall not happen!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best6.jpg: You will learn of my true name once you have become successful as a magus. For now restrain yourself!

Embarrassed at nearly being had,
Saber snubs her nose at me and
falls silent.

…Apparently it was too soon to
try to learn her real name.

Next option is:

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best5.jpg: There is no more appropriate way for me to speak than with the air of an emperor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best5.jpg: We speak according to our parents' expectations of us in childhood, and how we were raised.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best5.jpg: I have not been permitted to speak plainly since leaving childhood.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best5.jpg: And now, were I to revert to that manner of speaking, I would deny What I have become.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best5.jpg: It would be like throwing away all that I have devoted myself to, even if I would regain my humanity-

The young female knight speaks with
certainty that such a day had never
-and will never-come.

She seems to boast that she devoted
her life to something.

That's pretty much a dig against King Arthur. Anyway the last and the funniest option.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Are you inquiring about my physical form? Or my spirit, my soul? My answer varies depending on which.

That was unexpected. I asked because
she has a masculine bearing and tone
of voice, so I thought perhaps she
had been raised a boy.

Saber comparitions: 2

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: My physical form is that of a woman. A short woman, but heights matters not in determining superiority.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: I do not mind it, and you should not either. Therefore, refrain from making comments about my height.

All right, I've learned one thing.
From now on, I'll be sure not to
use "petite" or "short" to describe
Saber, since I DO value my life.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Next, my spirit. It is about half and half, I suppose.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Although I do not allow gender to sway my preferences, I believe my core is a maiden, as I adore beauty.

…Oh from her brusque attitude
and gallant actions, I figured she
would value "valor" above all.

"My core is a maiden."

That sentiment seems incongruous
with her warrior spirit, but…

Knowing that gentleness resides
somewhere in her form males me less
nervous about the battles to come.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best2.jpg: And last is the orientation of my soul, an entity different from the body or spirit.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best2.jpg: Indeed. I think it admirable that I could go either way, though I am firmly rooted in the middle.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap240.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap241.jpg

In other words, "I'm not going to
shut up now that I can brag!"

That's too rich for my blood, no
matter how you figure it.

…It seems it would be better
if I were not to inquire any further…

Enough with bonding, let's go and search for that thing that Shinji took.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: It'd be a catastrophe if they attack us from behind while we return to campus. We should face head-on now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Master, we should locate the book that lowly extra hid here before they suspect what we're up to.

And that's what we do.

Video Here (Probably should watch this.)

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Praetor. I highly recommend you open that box immediately.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap273.jpg

There it is. The book that Shinji was
so desperate to keep hidden appears
to be some sort of diary written on
sheaves of parchment.

It is so old that the ink has begun to fade,
but I am able to read the name of a ship,
the Golden Hind, the names of several islands,
and the partial manifests of hijacked ships.

This must be the ship's log of a
pirate that sailed the high seas.

It must've been constructed with a fairly powerful
program since Shinji was obviously unable to
delete this folder and had to hide it here.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap278.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: It's a pty her true name isn't legible, but this book should prove a useful clue as to her identity.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap280.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: And i went through all of the trouble of bringing it down here… Oh well, I'll just have to take it back now.

Screenshots and Video are inconsistent, I know, stuff happened.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap284.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg:: Anyway, too bad for you. You came all this way just for me to take that book from you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap286.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best5.jpg: As to what obtaining information in the Holy Grail War truly means!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap288.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap289.jpg

There is another battle. We fare better but not by much.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap290.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot3.jpg: D-Don't start getting cocky now! And anyway, the SE.RA.PH is watching. I'll be victorious in the end!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap292.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best5.jpg: First of all, that item relating to our enemy's Servant is definitely a ship's log.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best5.jpg: Secondly, based on the ship¡s battery she had just revealed-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best5.jpg: If her prowess with vehicles is so advanced, then it means that without a doubt she is a Rider.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap296.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best5.jpg: Now that we've obtained the book that frail man-child tried to hide, we can leave this place without any problem.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best5.jpg: If you wish, we can go on and obtain the Trigger today or return and rest for the day. Do what you think best.

Before that, checking the new stuff on the Matrix.

fleet commander.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap301.jpg

And then we go for the Trigger.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap304.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap305.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: So this must be the second required cipher key, or Trigger if you insist on using the common vernacular.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: If we want to find the Triggers, we need to throughly explore the Arena. We must make this priority, Master.

And with that we leave. Spoils gotten offscreen: 2 level ups (Lv 6), 1 Return Crystal, 1000PPT, Tangerine (Taiga quest), Exorcist Blade (Formal Wear).

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%204/snap308.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best2.jpg: However, we can't win against them with information alone. Be diligent in your training.

I can totally take on Rider with level 6 stats and no code casts. We don't need more training Saber.

Nothing happens. So to do the same that we do everyday.

Male Student: He stands out so badly that no matter how furtive he tries to be his actions are easy to see.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%205/snap003.jpg

Male Student: …Oh, I see. You and Shinji are pitted against each other. That's kinda rough.

Female Student: So, the first cipher key is on the first floor, etc.

Let's talk: On skills.
The special abilities that every Servant can use. Rider used one on the battle in the day before. They usually override the enemy action, and using Guard cuts the damage by half, I believe.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%205/snap029.jpg

Male Student: I highly advise that you keep some around just in case things go south on you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%205/snap034.jpg

Male Student: Fortunately my Servant is pretty powerful, so I'll be all right for now, but later on…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%205/snap036.jpg

Female Student: I didn't do anything, but he somehow found out the true name of my opponent's Servant…

Female Student: I know you're jealous. Who knows, someday you'll find someone as wonderful as my darling!

We go to the Arena and…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: I've actually doing bottom feeding Masters like Skanky a favor. The Arena is a dangerous place.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: But if you must enter the Arena, you'll need to track down the two magic sigils I set.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: However, once you make it into the Arena, I'll crush you like a cockroach. Show up if you dare.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: See you later. Oh, and where are the magic sigils, you ask? Find them yourself, loser!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: The sigils are like tributaries feeding a river. Unless we block the flow, the seal will remain.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: Praetor, arduous though it may be, we must find the two locations where he placed those sigils.

Gee, I wonder where they are.





To the Nurse's office.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: I'm sure you'll find this information useful. I think you owe me a word of thanks.

That could have been useful before Saber.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%205/snap056.jpg

One of the sigils used to make
the barrier has been deleted.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: We've found the second one. Enough of these stupid games, let's hurry to the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Best1.jpg: I will make our foe suffer for the unforgivable sin of annoying me!

Well let's go then.

We enter the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Drunk2.jpg: Compliment accepted. I'm a pirate mercenary. The brighter my pile of gold the more gusto behind my gun.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: …

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: I hacked into the Arena and got it to generate more treasure, so…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: My servant gets stronger the more she gets paid!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Well, of you want any, you better get there before me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Drunk2.jpg: Hmm. Bold words, Shinji. But can someone like you really snatch all the treasure first?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Drunk2.jpg: No, you can't! You're nothing more than a hapless, twisted knave!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: You just called me a knave?! You don't get to talk to me like that, you ungrateful Servant!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%207/snap000.jpg

Well this is it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%207/snap001.jpg

When I turn back to look at the
person speaking behind me, I see
Kotomine standing there.

Right, the Elimination Battle is
today-a day that will be the last
for either Shinji or myself.

-Will someone really die today?

I mean… Even though I can say
the words, the idea that someone's
going to die is just too surreal.
It can't be reality.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: Come to me when you are ready. You can do something trifling like stop by the commissary if neded.

Apparently finished, he opens the
door and lets himself out.

All right. This is the very first
Elimination Battle. Let's go..
fight Shinji on the battlefield.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%207/snap009.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%207/snap010.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%207/snap011.jpg

We go to our room.

Let's talk: On Elimination Battles.
Boss fights as more commonly known. The process starts before the battle, since we use the Matrix Levels to guess the identity of the Enemy Servant. After we know who he is, we go to the supply room and we enter a lift. There is some banter and then the battle.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%207/snap015.jpg

Shinji Matou. A friend of sorts
from the prep period who I just
can't bring myself to hate.

The weapon that his treasured
Servant wields is…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%207/snap018.jpg

Choosing the wrong one only leads to a dialogue that says "It's wrong, the right one is…" and returns you to the options.

That's right. When I got a taste
of her power in the Arena, she was
dual-wielding old-fashioned pistols.

She and the socially retarded Shinji
made a good pair of troublemakers.
She's like his wild big sister.

Also, Shinji hid the note that he
found from his Servant.

What did the note say her Noble
Phantasm was…?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%207/snap023.jpg

Though the paper was old and the
handwriting scratchy, I could read
her ship's name-the Golden Hind.

From her attack, I deduced that she
captained a ship, and that's when I
realized her class was Rider.

Although Shinji was pretty relaxed
at first, he's gotten more on edge
as I've gained more information.

He's been downright childish at
times, like when he blocked me
from entering the Arena.

And slowly but surely, I pieced
together the true identity of
Shiji's Servant.

Her true name is probably-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%207/snap030.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%207/snap031.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%207/snap032.jpg

Francis Drake a renown pirate who
circumnavigated the world around
the Cape of Good Hope.

A man-er, a woman?- who gained instant
fame after destroying the invincible
Spanish Armada.

At any rate, it's a lucky thing I
figured out her true name before
the Elimination Battle.

Shinji may be a fool at times,
but there's no arguing that he's
a hacker of incomparable talent.

I hope these tidbits of information
can bridge the difference in our
skill levels-

Matrix Check.

the sun will never set" to teeter on the edge of
collapse.

She is a person who has dedicated her life to
hedonistic pursuits and sees no difference between
a paragon of virtue and a rig scoundrel. She
revels in all things gaudy, whether they are in
war or in her private life, and is content to
chase after ephemeral pleasures and leave nothing
of worth behind, much like the passing of a
raging storm.

She is particularly entranced with treasures of
gold and silver, but her true love lies not with
enduring treasure, but those treasures that
explode like fireworks and then quickly
fade away.

As she so often declares, "I chase after gold so
that I can scatter it like a storm!"

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%207/snap043.jpg
the inevitable crash at the end of it all. A
Legendary Spirit who is completely indifferent to
the frailty of human existence, she is content to
indulge in her own whims and desires until death
comes to greet her.

She died of dysentery at the age of 55. Her dying
wish was that she be buried in her full armor.

Chappel go.

They're perfect for each other.

I know Masters and Servants are

chemistry be constructive in battle?

Rin Tousaka was staring at me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Even though Shinji was the one who chose to fight you, he'he's the one who ended up dead.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: The reigning game champion of Asia is defeated. The moron didn't have a clue how to fight for his life.

I automatically opened my mouth to
defend the dead from desecration.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: This place is a battlefield. What sense is there in exalting someone who was dealt deceit?

The look in her eyes and her words
drove home a message: on the field
of battle, losers die.

It should have been obvious. But
apparently not to Shinji and I

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: The winner of the Holy Grail War can be granted any wish. But there is only one winner.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg; things worth dying for.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: You don't seems to have regained any of your memory yet.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Not convinced. The enemy Master is just going to think of you as a big waste of time.

Rin is right about everything.

Everyone who makes a stand here
fights with a strong will.

There's not a single one I could
defeat without a hard fight first.

I still don't have a reason to fight.

I can't even think about killing
and being killed until I have some
reason to fight.

That said, what right do I have to trample other people's dreams.

End of day.

Spanish Armada, but also of the stories involving
the golden stag and the eventide tempest that had spread throughout the whole of Europe.

The eventide tempest is the encapsulation of all
storms, from blizzards to cyclones, which manifest
in the imagination of men as beasts and soldiers,
saviors and monsters. Depending on who is
speaking, the leader of these apparitions ranges
from a fallen King Arthur to the Norse god Odin
to the first murderer of men, Cain. In England,
it is believed that FrancisDrake rides the
endless storm despite the fact the role
assignes to her is usually given to malevolent
figures of history and myth.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: How the hell would I know? Rules like that aren't meant for me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: But worms like you need a place to crawl away too, am I right?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: i mean, hey. I'm a fair guy. I don't like fighting against losers any more than the next talented guy.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: But, I guess get used to it, since nobody here can defeat me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: My servant El Draque and I are completely invincible.

It continues like normal.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 7/snap131.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: You really want to fight me, huh? *Sigh* …You're a freaking idiot.

Continues like normal.

The other option leads to…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: What? Cat got your tongue? Just say something already!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Oh, I get it. You're so happy that you're all chocked up. Then get your Servant to answer me, huh?

And Saber calls him a talking rat and yaddah yaddah.

And that's all.

PS. DELAYS FOR CHRISTMAS AND STUFF. May or may not resume as before tomorrow.

Archer: Wakame hunting.

Day 1

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Uggh, First I dream about almost getting killed and then I dream about getting killed. That's it. No more midnight snacks.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Archer/snap022.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: I guess the first part wasn't a dream.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug2.jpg: So, is everything okay with you? Tell me if you feel pain anywhere.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug2.jpg: As the Holy Grail War has begun, monitoring my Master's condition is now a necessity.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug2.jpg: Before I go on, you did enter the Holy Grail War knowing what you were getting into, right?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: I don't think so, no.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Archer/snap026.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug2.jpg: …Cat got your tongue? Until now, the thought of a clueless Master never occurred to me…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Oh well, as our contract is official, verbally abusing you isn't going yo help matters any.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: All right, perhaps I should start at the beginning and explain what the Holy Grail is?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Arthurian thingy that grants wishes.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Archer/snap030.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Its form varies. It has been a cup and a large tree. One time it took the form of a human being.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Cutting to the chase, in this place anything that grants wishes is considered a Holy Grail.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Many moons ago, magi from all over created a framework in which they fought for the Holy Grail.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Archer/snap034.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Archer/snap035.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug3.jpg: While there's no bloodier conflict, its structure has been aped many times.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: This world's Holy Grail War is just another pale copy. Although there are some differences…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: For example, the rules. Servants and magi fight together and losers forfeit their Command Seals.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Archer/snap039.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Once you're in, the only way out is to win the Grail or die. Easy enough to understand, right?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Archer/snap041.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg; So, moving on… Do you know what a Servant is?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: No idea whatsoever.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Archer/snap043.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug2.jpg: Servants are re-creations of Legendary Souls called to fight in the Holy Grail War.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug2.jpg: Only people whose names and deeds have survived the millennia become Legendary Souls.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug2.jpg: Those people are reproduced here as Servants. Though some are more infamous than legendary…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Archer/snap047.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Archer/snap048.jpg

Archer… His personality is kind
of grating, but I can't fault
his abilities as a Servant.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: So can I know who you are or something?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Archer/snap050.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Not all Legendary Soul are legendary. You probably wouldn't know it even if I told you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: For the time being, my abilities are far more important than my true name.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Also, most Masters refer to their Servants by their class so as not to give away their identity.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug2.jpg: So call me Archer. That and I do not see the point of revealing my true name during all of this.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg; Oh! You woke up, thank goodness. I hope you are better and your memories should have returned.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Oh thanks I… wait why I don't remember anything?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: Oh so you have not recovered your memories? That's a pity, and unfortunately I can't help you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: But you are the school nurse!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: Still can't help you. Oh but have this, you should check it frequently.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: An iPhone Terminal. Okay thanks. Now what to do…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: Rooftop go now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Sir, yes sir.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: So now what.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Hey, the person over there.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Hmm?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch2.jpg: Stay still for a second.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Hey wait… Where are you touching?!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Almost feels real.

???: That's because she's real Master.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Stop joking, someone this bland can be real… can't it?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Ouch.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch4.jpg: Y-you are a Master? You look like an NPC because of how bland you are. It's like you don't have your memories or something.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Yeah, funny thing about that…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: You don't remember anything? That's pretty bad. Well it's not like you are going to survive anyway.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Archer/snap000.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug2.jpg: Actually… It's really nostalgic to hear words like that. I'm just a magnet for girl problems…

Archer trails off into mumbling.

The gist is about the two female
Masters here, but I can't catch
the details.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Well good luck with that.

Evening.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Well now what?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: Rejoice for you are now a Master in the Holy Grail War.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: My name is Kotomine and I will be this war supervisor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: You can now go and level up in the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: Use the first 6 days to prepare yourself and in the 7th day you'll fight to the death.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: Do you have any queries?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: I don't, so let's continue. Please tell me who I fight.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: You don't have a victim opponent? Please wait until tomorrow.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: One last thing, here is the password to your room. Go now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Archer/snap007.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Your private room bears a striking resemblance to a classroom.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Well, whatever. It's not important how it looks, as long as we can talk strategy in here.

Be grateful we've been provided a
space the prying eyes and ears of
other Masters can't reach.

I should come back when I need
to talk with Archer.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: humph, so this is headquarters? It's lacking in comfort, not that I'm in a position to complain.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: -Even a shabby room like this will feel like a king's palace after a few wins under our belt, Master.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Well, let's go to the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Archer/snap014.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Before you enter the Arena, I suggest you do any shopping or intel gathering first.

Well we enter the Arena

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Archer/snap016.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: In order to cull incompetent Masters, SE.RA.PH has turned a number of enemy programs loose here.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: It's the perfect place for a certain novice Master to train. Don't worry, I'll try to not let you die.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Archer/snap019.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Archer/snap020.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Archer/snap021.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: You can use items in battle as well. I recommend you try to keep me in good condition… please.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Depending on your commands, I might get mauled by even the weakest of enemy programs.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Archer/snap034-1.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug3.jpg: …Oh man. I hate to tell you this, but I've got some bad news.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug3.jpg: I realized in the dungeon that my power level is limited by how much of it you can draw out of me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Our only chance for winning is YOUR improvement. Can't say I'm thrilled at the odds of that going well…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: However, there's been times in the past where I've seen effort compensate for weakness.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Starting tomorrow, you and I ought to train a lot more. I guarantee you won't regret putting in the time.

Day 2.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Well I wonder who my opponent is…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/snap010.jpg
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg…Crap

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: Oh you are my first opponent. Geez how though for you, because you suck.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: Later loser.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: [Begins to angst]
Evening.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: Oh before I forget, you have to collect Triggers to be able to fight on the Elimination Battle. And you can't fight for more than three turns. 'kthxbye

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: …Okay.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: You still suck, well Imma gonna go to arena later tater.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Archer/snap000.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Whatever the case, this might be a good chance for you to practice. Hurry let's go after him.

Arena go go go.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Archer/snap002.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: But this might be a golden opportunity to get some info on them. Let¡s track them down before they leave.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Oh, a lot of extremely random stuff can and will happen while you're in the Arena

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Also, you can only enter the Arena once a day. Make sure you thoroughly explore it before exiting.

Well to where the wakame is.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Archer/snap008.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: You can't predict how these meetings will play out, but maybe we can get some insight into their strategy.

Meeting Shinji and Rider. Again.
We fight and we lose. Badly. Again.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Archer/snap010.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug2.jpg: Although dangerous, the encounter was certainly educational as we now know his Servant uses a gun.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug2.jpg: I'm not sure by any means, but if she uses a projectile weapon her class may be Archer, just like me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Archer/snap013.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: A good strategy is the key to survival here. You'd do well to keep that in mind.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: As long as you follow my lead, all will be well.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: This war is also a race against time. Chances are that we may not see the enemy again tomorrow.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Some info is available on certain days, so you should try to hit the Arena every day.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Archer/snap019.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Most formal Wear is infused with powerful special abilities referred to as Code Casts.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Archer/snap028.jpg

Arena out.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Archer/snap030.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Now that you've got the kist of getting information, think you can pick up more tomorrow?

Day 3

Evening

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/Archer/snap000.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: For that reason, you've got to drain the campus of information every single day.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: When you enter the Arena, you forfeit any further investigation for that day, understand?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Humans do not replicate their actions, so what you miss one day is gone forever.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: So make a habit of investigating campus and listening to others before entering the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Noted.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: I see. Good. Then let's begin the investigation.

Hallway 2nd floor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/Archer/snap006.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/Archer/snap007.jpg

Rin and Shinji talk.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot3.jpg: You can't win against my Servant and her Armada.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: An Armada huh? So is a physical attack. Also, could it have something to do with the Invincible Armada, I wonder?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot3.jpg: Yeah well… maybe I'm lying to you. Anyway I'm leaving.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Oh hey Shinji.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot3.jpg: You were here?! I mean, keep on sucking loser.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: *Sigh* Naive amateurs.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/Archer/snap008.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: The guy's an idiot. Anyway, you can find information in both the Arena and on campus.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: From now on, be sure that you don't sleepwalk through your investigation, okay?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Yes.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/Archer/snap011.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Be sure to thoroughly search the Arena and campus for clues. It's better to be obsessive than dead.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: There will be information that is only available on certain days, so pay attention at all times.

And the day ends, since we don't do anything in the Arena.

I LIVEEEEEE, saying that, updates should come at a more relaxed pace since I am entering school this Monday again. *sigh*

My rage face is not great enough. But yeah, everybody was also right about Drake. She sounds like a cool woman.

I still feel the need to point out again that's a mistranslation. :P

I know that Koto. I was one of the ones that were relieved when it was first brought up and settled. It's just, seeing that in person, still bugs me.

Also, Archer is rabu. Guess after death he finally realized Shinji isn't such a nice person, eh?

Day 4

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Oh, so you passed, congratulations, even though I had guessed..

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Thank you, I guess. By the way, that's your Servant?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Oh yes, Gawain introduce yourself.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Dick1.jpg: Pleased to meet you, I hope you will be a worthy foe.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: I must abide you farewell. 'Till we meet again.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: What The Harway heir is here?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Oh hey Rin.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: They must be serious about the Holy Grail.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Still won't lose though.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Hey Rin, Rin? Riiiin? Okay well bye then.

Evening.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Well, now what?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Oh, good evening.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Now you talk to me?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: …?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Never mind

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Anyway, go to the library and get information, it could help you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Hmm… thanks?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch2.jpg: Don't worry about it. Now go along.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Well let's see, I don't know much about his servant so I could search without hope of finding anything…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot2.jpg: Hey loser, you are here to search about my Servant right? Hah you won't find anything, I hid it in the Arena. Later, loser.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: …Or that could happen sure. Well to the Are-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: Before you go, you should visit the chapel. You can enter now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Sure I guess.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: Yo! Here for an Alteration of the Soul?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Alter my what?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Simply put, to level up.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Yeah.

Not pictured: 9 points toward strength.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Archer/snap086.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Well let's rest a bit before going to the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Archer/snap001.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Archer/snap002.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: I can only assume you feel the same, but I have a strange affinity for places like this.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: With the exception of myself, this place must be a nightmare for most Legendary Souls.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: It's most likely coincidence, but the choice of venue could be intentional. As a soldier, I hope it was a fluke.

Video Here
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Archer/snap006.jpg (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3_DvA8En6A)

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug3.jpg: Not at all. Whether it's an imitation or the real thing, contact between humans makes for forced civility.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug3.jpg: Also, you're always required to be in class at a specific time. Perfect for those who can't plan for themselves.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug3.jpg: The academic culture is very logically structured.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug3.jpg: A society with an educational system is doomed to fail. The ability to learn is what makes one human.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug3.jpg: Well, that would be the answer you'd find in a textbook, anyway.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug3.jpg: honestly, I can't see why you'd care about whether I liked school or not.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug3.jpg: A servant's abilities won't change just because they're into institutionalized pedagogy.

Archer snaps his mouth shut, almost
as if saying out loud:
"This conversation is over."

Archer's reply is brutally
matter-of-fact and leaves no room
whatsoever for argument or rebuttal.

It's not like I have anything to
add, but his attitude irks me to
no end.

I didn't really care about the answer
per se; I was just hoping to start a
meaningful conversation.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Archer/snap018.jpg

My complaints to Archer are met with
silence. As my Servant and ally,
I want him to change his attitude.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug3.jpg: Oh, a thousand pardons. So you're actually worried about me, just like a good Master would be.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug3.jpg: However, sarcasm is an indelible part of my nature. Remember, we Servants are but recreations of past persons.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug3.jpg: Our abilities may be enhanced to a degree, but our personalities remain as they were, perhaps more so.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug3.jpg: You might as well resign yourself to the fact that you're saddled with a snide, cynical Servant.

Not in the video.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Archer/snap024.jpg

But if I lose my temper with him the abuse
will only get worse. I can imagine Archer saying,
"Instead of wasting time talking shouldn't you
be at least trying to get stronger?"

I don't think I could take the
humiliation. I should take a break
and prepare for the fight ahead.

Next.

Video Here
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Archer/snap027.jpg (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9n9j1O-Awv4)

Archer mentioned something about
this setting being intentional.

Could there be a deeper meaning in
making the stage for the Holy Grail
War resemble a high school?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: No, it's not so much the appearance of the stage itself as the motivations of whatever created it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: If the Holy Grail created this place of its own accord, then I'd write it off as coincidence.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: But if someone's using it for their own purposes then there's more to worry about than just winning the war.

Some unknown person using the Grail-
Could it be that priest?

He seems uncharacteristically evil
and manipulative for a man of
the cloth…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: A brilliant bit of deduction, but unfortunately way off the mark. The priest is nothing more than an NPC

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: This is only my personal opinion, but no one could be using the Holy Grail or manipulating it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: That'd mean that the Grail has been claimed by someone. If that was true, the Holy Grail War could not happen.

that's right.
I guess my suspicions led me to read
too much into Archer's words.

-However. Ignoring everything for the
moment, why does Archer suddenly
look so smug and self-satisfied?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Err… what? I find it amusing that you'd call a man devoted to God "evil and manipulative."

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: You're lucky you don't know the truth. The real thing is far worse and it seems I'm stuck with him for eternity.

Archer shrugs his shoulders in
resignation. It seems that he had met
the priest before becoming a Servant.

If he knows the priest who is overseeing this
Holy Grail War, then maybe he knows about
the original war for the Grail.

…And the conversation ends.

By Archer's standards, that must've
been the equivalent of idle banter.

The look on his face as he silently
contemplates the situation is
enigmatic at best.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: But- Why a school? Outside of the Arena, I don't see the need to have a place for magi to mingle.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg… Then again, maybe this place isn't for the Master's benefit, but is something the Holy Grail requires.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Master are you aware of the one obligation that all intelligent beings are required to meet?

Minimum obligation…?
Why didn't he ask about the
definition of intelligence…?

Mankind develops their intelligence
and bent the world to their will. They
created organized societies and mighty
civilizations, some which still exist.

But what obligation is humanity
required to fulfill…?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: The one obligation of all intelligent beings is to reject stasis and complacency.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: If humanity just wanted to exist, it'd be easy to live like animals and let natural selection run its course.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: But humans in general do not ink like that.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: The abandonment of rational thought… It'd be like devolving back into man's primate predecessors.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: No matter the circumstances, humans will always be inventive, progressive living beings.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: And regardless of how things will go in the future, they can never be satisfied leaving things as they are.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: in short, progression is the duty of any intelligent being. Their souls demand that they learn and evolve.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: The Holy Grail holds that aspect of humanity in the highest regard.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Thinking along those lines, maybe this setting is supposed to remind Masters of what makes them human.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: *Sigh* I don't sense any evil intent, but that makes me even more suspicious.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: I don't think it's the fight itself that interests the Holy Grail.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Rather, I think it wants to observe how humans would confront one another in a real life setting.

And then the last one.

Video Here
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Archer/snap065.jpg (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LY2E3_CM__w)

By "mere soldier" is Archer referring to himself?
After taking out that Effigy in the Arena as well
as all of the other enemy programs, he's proven
himself to be more than a "mere soldier"

His diminished skills are my fault.
As my powers as a Master are weak,
he can't access his true abilities.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Sorry to disappoint, but it's the truth. Even if I was at full strength and regardless of past achievements,

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: what you see before you is merely the shell of a common soldier.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Most Legendary Souls are figures of renown who are either revered or reviled. I, however, am an exception.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: …I don't want to get your hopes up, so I shoal tell you that I'm not all that powerful of a Servant.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: So don't set your expectations too high. And anyway, I'm just a weapon by proxy and have no say in battle.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Whether we live or die is up to you. A heavy burden for one so young, but there's no turning back now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: From now on, you'll have to find your own reason for going on. Never forget that it's all on you.

"You're not responsible for the weak"

The words that Archer said to me
before come back to me.
I have to get sronger.

In his own way, Archer was pointing
out that his true strength would be
meaningless if his Master is weak.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: That's all I have to say. Concentrate on your own future and stop worrying about your Servant's past.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Remember the war has just begun. All that you should be thinking about is how to win the first battle.

…And the conversation ends.

It continues like the second option from this point on.

To the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Archer/snap087.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: It'd really suck if they ambushed us as we returned to camous, so we should just deal with them now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Master, we should try to find that book before that little punk and his Servant find us.

So we go and find it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Archer/snap094.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Archer/snap095.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: It looks like it'd be worth the time to root through that box over there.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Archer/snap097.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Very, very interesting. I can see why the boy wanted to hide it so badly.

And then they arrive and we go to meet them.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Give me the book back you, loser.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Archer/snap101.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug2.jpg: It's lecture time, Master. Using my blade I will show you the consequences of giving away information.

We fight, we scratch him a couple of times and then they leave.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Archer/snap103.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug2.jpg: First off, that book must be his Servant's. And it appears to be a ship's log…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug2.jpg: And judging by the ship's battery that Servant just unleashed on us-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug2.jpg: Her prowess with vehicles is really advanced; that means that without a doubt she is a Rider.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug2.jpg: Well, now that we've got what we came for, I don't see a problem with us taking off now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug2.jpg: Although we could go track down the Trigger right now, too. Stay and search or go and rest; it's up to you.

So again we go for the trigger.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Archer/snap110.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: If we want to insure we find the Triggers in the future, we had better thoroughly scour the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Archer/snap115.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Well, all that matters today is that you got a feel for the importance of information.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: You probably noticed half the prep period has passed. Obatining both Triggers in time is crucial.

Day 5.

First we visit Archer.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 5/Archer/snap000.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug4.jpg: A shame we aren't in the real world. Oh well, at least this will go towards your spiritual growth, as it were.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug4.jpg: Unfortunately your physical form won't benefit at all from your exertions here.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug3.jpg: Well there's no use worrying about that. Just continue to wander the Se.Ra.Ph like Kwai Chang.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug3.jpg: If you keep adding to the distance you cover, there might come a day where you'll be rewarded.

Then to the chapel, we get a skill and such.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 5/Archer/snap005.jpg

We get blocked before being able to enter the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 5/Archer/snap006.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Like they say, a leopard can't change its spots. Expect nothing but subterfuge from now on.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Oh Hey there. What you can't enter? Perhaps that's something good for you,

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: If you really wanna you can find two magic sigils. Do it if you can, loser.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 5/Archer/snap008.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg; Luckily, this barrier is fairly weak, and is caused by an a nodally in the area's programming code.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: I guess that leaves us no choice but to find the two locations that little vermin put his sigils.

Nurse's room first.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 5/Archer/snap011.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 5/Archer/snap012.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Pressing it will bring up a list of places you can immediately travel to without any effort.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: If you forget anything, make sure it's not this.

And then homeroom.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 5/Archer/snap015.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: …Although I have to admit that whoever dreamed this trap up is a genius…or a savant.

Arena. Not much happens.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 5/Archer/snap017.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 5/Archer/snap018.jpg

And then night.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 5/Archer/snap019.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Just one day left in the preparation period. You'll have to be trained up with Triggers in hand by tomorrow.

Day 6

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 6/Archer/snap000.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: So, tomorrow is the day of the Elimination BAttle. Have you done everything you need to do?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Once the day of the Elimination Battle arrives, it'll be too late for go-backs.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: It's not like the enemy Master is a threat, but his Servant is on the powerful side.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Her strength matches my own, so it'll be the one who falters first who loses.

We go to the Arena Entrance.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Drunk2.jpg: Hey Shinji.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Hmm?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Drunk2.jpg: Money.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: Money?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Drunk2.jpg: Yeah my money. Where is it?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg; Give me a second. It should be in the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Drunk2.jpg: Well hello there.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Idiot1.jpg: You… it… it doesn't matter. I create some treasure in the Arena. Since my Servant gets more powerful with more money I will win.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Shinji is not smart at all. Not surprising.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 6/Archer/snap004.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: In any case, we can't twiddle our thumbs while she gets stronger.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Let's use that treasure to bolster our own funds.

Spoilers: We don't. I forget to sell them. Every time.

And we enter the Arena.

And then we leave after winning 3-2. Again.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: I'm referring to how tragically sloppy the guy has been with his information, of course.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Review your information one more time tomorrow before the Elimination Battle in your private room.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: Things might not go as smoothly next round, so let's just enjoy the battle this time.

I love playing as Saber, plugging her Strength as high as I can easily get it and then just trolling Rider during the Hunting session. Isn't it sad Shinji-san?

Catharsis.

Well here we go.

First stuff that I missed on Archer's side.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 7/Archer/snap084.jpg

Ignore the name, that's the one I use on every Female protagonist that needs naming.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 7/Archer/snap090.jpg

For those in the know, that's Strength raised along with defense and magic. I think some Agility too.

And so we go into the elevator and we start talking with Shinji. When He refers to our Servant, Archer says:

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 7/Archer/snap000.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: …I didn't realize I'd be thinking about this, but there's certainly something in a name.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug2.jpg: He's not the same person-this Shinji is actually good at heart. Still, I can't help thinking this is fate.

And then we battle.

And then it's over.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 7/Archer/snap007.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg…. El Draque. I'm surprised that you're a woman, but perhaps you're even wiser and deadlier for it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smug1.jpg: After all, gender has nothing to do with prowess on the battlefield. Farewell, great navigator.

And then Shinji dies. Sad stuff.

We meet Rin and…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 7/Archer/snap096.jpg

And then we give her the reason. And the week ends.

Next up: So who wants to repeat the same week again, except with Caster? The answer is you, by the way.

Oh yes, Archer sure does like Shinji.

Everyone loves Shinji.


I love playing as Saber, plugging her Strength as high as I can easily get it and then just trolling Rider during the Hunting session. Isn't it sad Shinji-san?

Time for true story, bro: The first time I played Extra, which was in glorious nihongo, with Saber I might add, this battle took me a lot of time because a) I was an idiot and didn't identify patterns and b) All my level up points were nicely distributed in all of the stats. It was fun hitting for only 60∼67 damage. Let us not talk about the last Servants because they were battles of 30 mins or so. Fun stuff.

As a P.S I hate Caster favoritism. Seriously how many portraits does she has?

Vahan
January 19th, 2012, 09:02 PM
Seriously how many portraits does she has?

Caster has about 12, Saber has 9, and i think Archer has about 6 considering how his expression hardly seems to change. It seems someone in the design department decided that thier Waifu was more important!

As for Sbaer ... well, I just went Glass Cannon and poured all her points into Strength and acutlaly didn't die as many times as I expected. Managed to EX it out for when it came to Savior and trolled his ass in about three turns. Ah, that was fun, Archer took WAY longer and died surprisingly more time ... although I blame the stupid EX Rank info reveal for not showing when Excalibur Galatine/Kazaki Bey is going to show up!

Wifely Welcome.

Day 1

Well third time it's the charm. And the charm on this girl is pretty high.

But first summaries, Our protagonist had a dream of death and war. She wakes up on the Nurse's Office and before she can fully convince herself that this is a dream, her Servant appears.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Caster/snap015.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: Ah, good morning my dear Master! I'm glad to see you've finally decided to wake up.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: If you'd died, I was going to curse everyone in sight. Anyway, welcome to the Holy Grail War!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Um… you do know all about the Holy Grail War, right?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Nope (for the third time)

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Caster/snap019.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: You were asleep for a long time so your memory might still be fuzzy. Let me explain, then.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: First, the Holy Grail. It supposedly held the blood of a savior and can grant any-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Wish. It's also Arthurian in nature, yep.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Caster/snap022.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: You might've forgotten this, too, but you're one of those magi who've com to fight for the Holy Grail.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: Also, though it's called the Holy Grail, there's no way it could be the real thing.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: But don't worry about that. The fact that it can grant wishes makes it a Holy Grail of sorts.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Caster/snap026.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: Masters continue to duel until only one is left to claim the Holy Grail… I think.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: But don't worry! My dear Master is a lock to make it all the way. It'll be a walk in the park!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Caster/snap029.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Okay, now that's out of the way, let's get to the important stuff. Do you know what Servants are?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: I have no idea.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Caster/snap031.jpg

Caster bows twice and makes a "mikoon" like sound. Have I told you she is energetic? 'cause she is.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Caster/snap032.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: Those whose actions continue to have an affect long after their deaths become Legendary Souls.

Shouldn't that be effect?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Caster/snap034.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: But whether actual Legendary Souls were summoned in past Holy Grail Wars is subject to debate.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: But this time, the Holy Grail has done a better job of reproducing Legendary Souls than any human!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Also, according to the rules of the Holy Grail War, Servants are divided into seven classes.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Caster/snap038.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Caster/snap039.jpg

Hint: She is Hard Mode.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: So who are you then?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Caster/snap040.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Please, just call me Caster.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: That way, my identity won't be revealed to our enemies, who could then use it against us.

Our Main Character then meets the nurse and discovers that has amnesia. The Nurse is useless, even though she is the nurse, and she is giving a terminal which is totally not an iPhone. She is then railroaded into the Rooftop where we meet Tousaka Rin who molests our Main Character, cementing the fact that she is a raging lesbian. Then she shows her inner bitch "Tsun" and tells our Main Character that she is bland and she mocks her lack of memories. After realizing that the main character does in fact not remember anything, proceeds to tell her loser in a polite manner.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Caster/snap000.jpg

She then leaves.

She find a suspicious priest who is the "referee" of the Holy Grail War. He then proceeds to explain how the War takes place and what we should do, calling her and us idiots both directly and indirectly.. Before letting her be free, he gives her a password to the Main Character, explaining that is the key to her room.

She proceeds to go there.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Caster/snap001.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: As we don't have to worry about eavesdroppers here, feel free to ask me about anything you'd like.

Caster seems to have a different take
on this setup, but she's right in
that we can talk freely here.

If I need to talk with Caster for any
reason I should make it a point to
come back here to do it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Hmm… I think this arrangement will work. Please forgive me for taking the liberty of tidying things up a little.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg. So, what do you think? It's not exactly the Imperial Palace, but it does have a regal air, does it not?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: I probably focused a little too much on my own predilections, but I know you're gracious enough to humor me!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: But I'd like you to add your own special touches from now on.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Caster/snap009.jpg

After being told that, our Main Character decides that is time to go to the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Caster/snap012.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: There's an ungodly number of enemies prowling about, but fear not! I can take them out fro you, Master!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: You can also use items while we're tail-deep in battle as well.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: If you could shower me with healing on a regular basis, that'd be great. My defense is sketchy at best…

She is not kidding.

After a level up, we leave the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Caster/snap028.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Ah, it's not your fault, Master. Buuut…the more you get used to fighting, the more I'll kick butt!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: Let's explore the Arena again tomorrow.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: I'm invincible when my Master is threatened, so don't worry! Anyone in our way will get cut down!

Day 2

Our Main Character learns who her opponent is going to be: A dear old friend called Shinji Matou. Shinji decides to give her a heartfelt talk about how much she sucks. Typical friend talk you see.

Our Main Character decides to check her Matrix.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Caster/snap001.jpg

We also learn she is called Hooters.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Caster/snap002.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Caster/snap003.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Caster/snap004.jpg

Hooters learns that she needs to find triggers in the Arena. If she fails she loses by default.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Caster/snap005.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Caster/snap006.jpg

Hooters finds Shinji in the 1st floor and he proceeds to keep trash talking to her. A good friend indeed.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Caster/snap008.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: Master, Hurry up and go after him! I'll pound that little guppy into chum.

Hooters decides to do that.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Caster/snap010.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: But this might be a golden opportunity to get some info on them. Let's track them down before they leave, Master.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: And Master, lost of stuff happens here and if you miss out, any info you might've gotten will be lost for good.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Also, you can only enter the Arena once a day. Make sure you thoroughly explore it before leaving for the day.

Hooters then finds Shinji.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Caster/snap014.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: You never know how these meetings will turn out, but this might be a great chance to see what they're up to.

Shinji proceeds to keep trash talking. His Servant decides that he is a funny guy. Before more hilarity becomes apparent, Shinji tells his Servant to attack Hooters. Hooters and Caster get their ass kicked but survive.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Caster/snap017.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: Oh yeah… Considering his Servant uses a gun, she might be an Archer, but don't quote me on that…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Caster/snap019.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: The key to surviving the Holy Grail War is to gather as much info as you can! And to follow my nose, of course!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: I get it, thanks.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Caster/snap021.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: …Oh yeah, this war is also a race against time. We might not see that little punk again tomorrow.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Some info is only available on certain days, so you should try to Search the Arena every day.

After that Hooters gets deeper on the labyrinth. She finds treasures, of course. What is a labyrinth without treasure?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Caster/snap024.jpg

Hooters leaves the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%202/Caster/snap034.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Because we're almost always famous, most people can recognize Legendary Souls by their true name.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: That's the kind of information we need to gather tomorrow, Master! Then we can form a battle plan.

Day 3

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/Caster/snap000.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Investigating the campus with the eye a sleuth every day will yield important clues!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Once you enter the Arena, you can't go back and investigate anything you missed, okay?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: People give things away when they talk, but they don't repeat themselves. So don't miss out!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: So make a habit of investigating campus and listening to others before entering the Arena!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I said a lot there! Did you catch it all?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Yeah, thanks.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I knew you were paying attention, Master! Let's go investigate.

Hooters leaves the classroom but doesn't go very far before seeing her rival.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/Caster/snap007.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/Caster/snap008.jpg

Before getting near Shinji, Hooters decide to check on Caster.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/Caster/snap009.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: It was just beginner's…un-luck…? Our next foe is that fashion victim, right? Don't worry, I can take him!

Hooters then gets near Shinji. She shears that he is talking with Rin about his Servant and something about an Armada. Rin quickly deduces that it has something to do with the Invincible Armada. Taken aback Shinji leaves rather distraught. He notes Hooters and tries to bluff about his superiority. Rin also manages to complain about n00bs.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/Caster/snap011.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: But enough about his stupidity. Be sure to search the Arena and the campus for info!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Remember, you can always count on my nose and ears to point you in the right direction!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Thanks.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/Caster/snap014.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Be sure to check every nook and cranny of the Arena and campus so you don't miss anything.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Also there might be valuable information that's available only on certain days, so stay sharp.

And so Hooters and Caster spend the rest of the day doing nothing.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%203/Caster/snap017.jpg

Also that seems uncomfortable.

Next up: T-regulations and lesbianism.

Aren't we moving too fast?

Day 4.

Hooters reunites with Leonardo Harway. He is polite and introduces his Servant as Gawain. Hooters deems this act surprising but Leonardo only seems unconcerned. Rin Tousaka is surprised to see Leo and recognize him as the heir of the Harway family. She still says that she will win the War.

Evening comes and Hooters is intercepted by Rin on the second floor. She suggests Hooters to go and search on the library.

In the Library, Hooters finds Shinji and he proceeds to reveal that he has hidden the book that would be helpful for her. He then proceeds to belittle her. Typical best friend behavior.

The author wonders if the joke has been run into the ground. It probably has on the Saber side, but let's continue writing it.

Before entering the Arena, Hooters is told that the chapel is open for business. Its business being helping you to level up. So Hooters does the most intelligent thing.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Caster/snap000.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Caster/snap001.jpg

After that, Hooters decides to rest on her room.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Caster/snap002.jpg

After exploring the academy grounds,
we return to the private room
assigned to us.

Even though this room is probably the
only safe area in this place, I can't
bring myself to relax.

This bloodbath known as the Holy Grail War.
Me being recognized as a magus despite my amnesia.
And being given a Servant who is capricious at best.

…I get it. My nervousness isn't being caused by
confusion, but comes from the fact that I'm the
only sane person present in this madhouse.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: *Sigh* By the look on your face, I think it's safe to assume that you're not thinking about me at all…

What do I do now? If Rin Tousaka is right, the
only way to leave this place is to win the Grail.
But I'm not nearly strong enough to do that.

The only way to survive, to not die,
is to take down opposing Masters one
by one until only I-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: And if I were you, I wouldn't start worrying so muxh until you REALLY start getting your hands dirty!

The voice coming from beside me
snaps me out of my black study.

On a platform made me several
desks sits my Servant in an
uncharacteristically demure manner.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: Okay, moping time is over! You're pretty weak right now so it's not a good idea to fret over just one thing.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: The silver lining of an evil curse; An elder courtesan bought at auction; There is always hope in despair!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: …With that said, you shouldn't burden yourself. It can be painful to worry alone, Master.

Funny but Caster doesn't seem annoyed at her
pitiful Master. Rather, she's trying to cheer up
someone she sees as a rather depressed noble.

While I truly appreciate her attempts
at cheering me up, her metaphors
definitely need some work.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: *Giggle* It's about time I got a chuckle out of you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Oh, Master? Now that we're here alone, we should introduce ourselves in more detail.

I have to credit Caster's smile with easing my
considerable stress. Also, her suggestion of more
detailed introductions is a pretty good idea.

When I made the choice to have Caster
as my Servant, there wasn't a whole
lot of time to get acquainted.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Okay, I'll go first. Of course due to various rules and T Regulations, I can't tell you my true name,

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: but it resembles that of a fox-eared maiden with an ancient and honorable origin, which surprises even me!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: But please do not hesitate to address me as Caster, okay?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Ah, but "honey" would be so much nicer, don't you think? Eek! Did I just say that out loud?!

…Was that last part supposed to
be a joke? It didn't really sound
like one.

I wonder. Is Caster really this ditzy,
or is it just a facade? Either way,
I need to stay on my toes.

But disregarding all of that for
the moment-

What are "T Regulations?"

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: Oopsy! I really shouldn't have sin anything about those-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: U-um… How do I out this without… Well T Regulations allow-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: I-I mean, they allow you to perform certain kinds of naughty acts with-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: I see what you're trying to do, but I have more self-control than that!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg. And anyway, haven't you ever heard the saying "A gentleman never asks and a lady never tells?"

While her enigmatic smile gives away nothing,
the fact her ears are totally stiff seems to be
a subtle warning to drop the subject.

In the face of Caster's ominous
silence, a slight nod of agreement
is the only answer I dare give.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Ah, it's nice to see that my Master is so incredibly perceptive.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen6.jpg: …Well, if you follow T Regulations, certain lascivious imagery and language is allowed, even encouraged,

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen6.jpg: but once you go beyond them, things get very violent and there are a lot of boobs and such…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen6.jpg: It's your turn now, Master! Even if your memory is muddled, I'm sure there's something you can share!

While I'd love to tell her something
about me, I cannot recall a single
thing about my past.

All I know for sure is my name and
that I am a student. Memories of my
family, my friends, even my dreams for
the future, are all clouded over.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Ah…! I'm so sorry I brought it up! D-Don't worry about it, Master!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: I'm not worried that you don't have any memories now! I know that you'll get them back eventually!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: But there's no guarantee that when your memories come back that they'll be good memories.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Actually, I have the feeling that it'd be better if you never get them back-

I'm probably imagining it, but
Caster sounded slightly dejected
just now.

It's almost as if I somehow
unintentionally blew off her
attempts at encouragement…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: I understand now. Let's leave discussions about the past for the future!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: In both love and war, you need a superior attitude and a superior state of mind! Oh yeah!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: We'd better get going! While I'd love to keep talking, the time for my Master's first battle has arrived!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: We need to keep our break times to a minimum and focus on preparing for the Elimination Battle.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: We can engage in more blissful conversation once we stomp that sleazy little punk.

Caster gives me a mischievous grin.
…It's not like it affected me or
anything, but I do feel better now.

Right now, I need to focus on surviving because if I die, Caster will be forced to share my fate. I'd never forgive myself if I let that happen to her, especially after all she's tried to do for me.

And then the Yurinext one.

Video Here.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Caster/snap059.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: Oh, I know! Please, don't think badly of me or see me as a rival!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: Though unworthy I may be, I will serve you with all my heart and should in any way you choose!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: In that… and in many other things… gender has no influence on my dedication to my duty!

Her voice rises to extraordinary
levels, as if to emphasize her
last statement.

Servants are theoretically superior to humans, being
Legendary Souls and all, so I guess the differences
between genders mean very little to them-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen6.jpg: To be honest, it is somewhat easier to have a male as a Master.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: But! If the ides of doing certain… things… bothers you, I'll make everything better with my magic!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: So just relax a little. You know, like you're taking a nice cruise through the Caribbean or something.

…Cruise through the Caribbean?
Try clinging to the aft railing of
the Titanic…

For the sake of my fragile sanity,
I should stop thinking too hard on
what she just said.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: It's your turn now, Master! Even if your memory is muddled, I'm sure there's something you can share!

It goes like it does on the other option.

Hooters decides that, that is enough dicking around and goes to the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Caster/snap071.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: It'd be a real pain in my tail if they caught us as we returned to campus, so let's just deal with them now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Master, we should try to find that book that idiot sea slug hid around here before he finds us.

Hooters goes to search for it. She finds a suspicious spot after a fork and a blocked path.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Caster/snap074.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Caster/snap075.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: that spineless jellyfish probably would love to hide something in a place like this. Let's investigate.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Caster/snap077.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: But there's a lot to be learned from this little missive. We've done it, my dear Master!

Shinji arrives and taunts her. Hooters decides that it will not stand and goes to confront him.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Caster/snap079.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: As a figure od divine authority, allow me to show you how potentially lethal leaking information can be!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: huh… that little twerp is really the lowest of plankton. But I did get something of value from our fight.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: First off, I can say with supreme confidence that book is a ship's log.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: Oh yeah, and about that ship's battery that Servant just used in our fight-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: If she's that skilled in using vehicles in her favor, then that means she must be a Rider!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: Now that we tracked down the book shrimp-boy tried to hide, it's okay to go back now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg. Unles you want to keep going and try to find the Trigger today? I vote for going back and resting, though…

Hooters decides to work instead of rest. Like real main characters do.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Caster/snap087.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: If we want to insure we find the Triggers in the future, we had better thoroughly scour the Arena.

And we leave the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Caster/snap089.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 4/Caster/snap090.jpg

Day 5

Hooters tries to enter the Arena but she's stopped by a mysterious wall.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 5/Caster/snap001.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I can only think of one person degenerate enough to do something so cheap…

Shinji then proceeds to be a pal and tell Hooters what is happening and how she can fix it. By the by, Shinji is not very smart.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 5/Caster/snap003.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I'll apologize for killing someone outside of the Arena later!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Once we find those sigils, the barrier should disappear. I guess he's just stalling for time.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: We need to find the two locations he said he set the sigils! It shouldn't be too hard… I hope.

And so Hooters goes off to find the sigils.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 5/Caster/snap007.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 5/Caster/snap008.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Pressing it will bring up a list of places you can travel to without any effort on your part!

Hooters decides to go to the chapel.

Not pictured: Everything going to MAG, again.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 5/Caster/snap015.jpg

After that, she goes to her classroom.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 5/Caster/snap016.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg; Wait a sec. That little punk's human, but he still pulled off that trap in the SE.RA.PH? How…

Shinji may be an idiot but he is a educated (when hacking is concerned at least) idiot.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: …He won't be the only Master to set up obstacles like that outside the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: But, as long as you're with me, Master, I'll knock down all the obstacles in your way!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Ah, the prep period ends tomorrow. If you don't have your cipher keys, remember to get them tomorrow.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 5/Caster/snap023.jpg

Day 6.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 6/Caster/snap000.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: the enemy Master is just a bully, but his Servant's a though woman. Still, I know we'll win.

Hooters then decides to go to the Arena. In the entrance she finds Shinji and Rider who are arguing about Rider's monetary expenses. Rider then notices Hooters and Shinji explains his plan.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 1/Day 6/Caster/snap002.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: But we're the ones who will look stupid if we let her power up, so let's go get in their way!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I mean, I want treasure, too…

Reaction screenshot, go.

And then Hooters and Caster return from the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Uh, he'd be miso soup, then Shinji Matou soup… *Bleccch*

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: Aaanyway, tomorrow let's review our information in our private room, before the Elimination Battle.

Next up: A song of fire and ice.

Hot and Cold.

Hooters is ambushed on her classroom by Kotomine who explains her how the Elimination Battles work. After that, she goes to her room and deduces that Rider is a genderbent Francis Drake.

Then she talks to Caster.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%207/Caster/snap000.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: The field of play of any strategy-based game requires a pragmatic order of actions.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: The core idea of both Go and mahjong is that one sees the whole of the world from a unique perspective.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Trying to anticipate your opponent's move is akin to meditation and the fusing the spiritual and the physical.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: In order to know yourself, you must first know others-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: Hahahaha, I'm just messing with you. Like I really believe in any of that mystical nonsense.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: The bottom line is that I think you're beyond awesome for having so many perfect fights!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: So, keep up your streak of perfection! I, for one, think it's amazing that you avoid taking any damage!

Hooters then goes to the chapel. She uses 3 points on magic.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%207/Caster/snap009.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%207/Caster/snap010.jpg

And so she goes on the elevator toward the Arena. Shinji tries to bluff his way to victory. Hooters just ignores him. Shinji asks Caster her opinion.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%207/Caster/snap011.jpg

And then the elevator reaches the end.

Notes: Decided to change from using the UMD to the ISO, so the battles should, theorically, load faster.

Also translations stolen taken without permission from Kotonoha's let's play. Sorry about that if you read this Koto-nee.

@1:18. Caster: I'll give you a heaping helping of punishment for making fun of Master when he didn't know right from left! Prepare yourself, Wakame!
Shinji: Wha... G-getting carried away just because you're kind of cute... you really are a foulmouthed Servant!

@2:03. Rider: Giving up? If you hand over all your possessions, I might let you go.
Shinji: You... really don't care about anything but money, do you?

@3:47.
Rider: Shinji... is it OK if I win soon?
Shinji: Yeah, show them, El Drago... the extent of my power.

@4:30
Okay so the Noble Phantasm has two incantations. If you have watched the Saber/Archer videos the one you have heard is:
It's time, scoundrels! The king of storms, the crowd of spirits, the Wild Hunt starts now!
However this one is different and since my japanese sucks I can't translate, sorry about that.

@4.49.
Rider: Gahhh, that worked better than rum~! I might not be able to stand up...
Shinji: Wait, are you drunk?!

And we win.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: When we get back, will you pat me on the head for a job well done-?

Shinji then realizes that when the letter says that you die when you lose, it's not exactly a metaphor.

And then we meet Rin who lays down what happens top the loser on our angst ridden protagonist. She then asks if we are ready to kill to survive.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%201/Day%207/Caster/snap014.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Right. As long as you mean it.

And the conversation ends. And so does the week.

By the by, instead of adding a poll on the topic I'm gonna ask here.

For the 4 or 5 people that read this, does this format is okay (1 week repeated thrice) or should I use another one (For example finish the game with Saber then come back and do Archer and finish with Caster)?

Guess I am continuing with Caster. We'll see who comes next laterish.

Also after a bit of manipulation and intrigue (not really) the line that Rider says while using her NP against Caster goes something like "My name will be remembered as Temeroso El Drago* the woman who set the sun"

* The fearful Drago. Spanish and all.

Morning

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap008.jpg

Unable to let it pass unnoticed,
my Servant talks to me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap010.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Needing a purpose to eb strong, needing a resolve to be legitimate- That all sounds like lies to me!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: You didn't need to know anything about yourself to allow me to be of use to you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: You can just go on instinct, even with the big stuff like ideals. That's what you've done so far!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: That's why you're a fighter. …Like him.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: You're the kind of person who is never crushed under the weight of responsibility.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: So, please don't say things like that. You'll die if you lose! You can't disappear, Master!

…All right. I'll keep doing my
best, even if I don't know why
just yet.

After all, I've won once, and I
need to keep winning.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap025.jpg

An elderly gentleman is standing
next to me.

His hair is pure white, and his
face weathered with the marks
of aging.

But, though he's clearly aged, he
doesn't seem the least bit frail.

If I had to describe the way he
wore his years, I'd say it was
like a tree's rings.

His scars have become a solid core
and tough bark. It is impossible
to see his age as a weakness…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap031.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: That you have left your opponent's appearance shake your resolve is proof enough of inexperience.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: And your eyes…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: …they are lost.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: You are beyond hopeless. Entering the battlefield in that state will prove… disastrous.

He walks away.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap036.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Because whatever you chose to do is absolutely, positively right, Master. You're never lost.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Jeez! Doesn't he know that old soldiers ought to get kicked off the horse and left behind?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg:…Wait is that the saying?

She's spacing lightly. I guess
she doesn't feel as overwhelmed
as I do.

Not only is he skilled, but he's
courageous and insightful. His
words shot clean through my ego.

Can I win against this man? But,
if I lose, then I'll be the one
facing death-

Evening.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap043.jpg

I think of the girl who gave me
advice when I didn't know left
from right.

-Rin Tousaka.

Maybe she's on the rooftop again.
I should check later to see if
she's there.

Well with that out of the way, we go and do something even more fun.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap047.jpg

Male Student: You know, half of the familiar faces around here are gone, now that the first round is over.

Male Student: I wonder if you and I will fight, given enough time.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap050.jpg

Female Student: Am I wrong? They don't REALLY die, do they?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap052.jpg

Male Student: It made me realize that there is no "next time" in this war. It's pretty terrifying.

We go and visit Castko.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap054.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Allow me to congratulate you on advancing out of the first round.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Although our enemy thought the Holy Grail War was just a game, he was a very powerful magus-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: But my Master was able to defeat him! Of course, I expected nothing less than victory!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: All we need to do is keep going just as we are!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Also… We managed to survive. With that said, there's no reason to dwell on your former opponent, right?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Although we've only been together for a short time, I know exactly what kind of person you are.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: So don't feel that you have to suffer alone in silence, all right?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap062.jpg

Female Student: I happened to look at him and he glared at me! Your opponent is a mean guy…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap064.jpg

Female Student: That Master is a seasoned veteran. He'll take you to task.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap066.jpg

Male Student: Can't rest on your laurels, though. There's way too much War left.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap069.jpg

Female Student: Just seeing it in action is scary enough. I don't want to experience it myself if I can help it…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap071.jpg

Male Student: My only objective is to annihilate everyone save myself.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap073.jpg

Male Student: I'm prepared to die in a fight, but to shuffle off the mortal coil due to poor preparation? Ew.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap075.jpg

Female Student: Do not become complacent, lest you be denied glory when next you fight.

Female Student: May you continue to experience the sweet ecstasy that only victory can provide.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap078.jpg

Female Student: Six more rounds to go before the Holy Grail is yours.

Female Student: May the Holy Grail continue to illuminate your path.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap081.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: The only ways to be released from the Holy Grail War are to win, or be defeated.

So we go and talk to Rin.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap083.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: He's a decorated soldier, although I believe he's retired now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: He's a sniper from a kingdom that is allied, whether they want it or not, with the Harway plutocracy.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Things like crawling over a mile or sniping an enemy commander are par the course for him.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap087.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Sheesh, you really are pathetic. Your memories haven't returned, and you're weak on top of that.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: I don't wanna preach, but without memories-without your reason to fight- you're dead in the water.

The ratio of put-down to advice is
kind of wonky there. I do get that
Rin says I have a handicap.

The Holy Grail is won by individual
motivation. To lack the core of
that motivation is a problem.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap092.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: You're not a strong-willed person or a soldier. Bynow, you should know that's a weakness.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Even if you've got the strongest Noble Phantasm out there, he'll still make quick work of you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap095.jpg

Uncomfortable silence. Not pictured, Rin with a visible elipsis in a dialogue box a top her head.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: What's that confused look for? I'm talking about Noble Phantasms… Don't tell me you don't know.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: It's like King Arthur's Excalibur. A Noble Phantasm is a power that makes your Servant a Servant.

Noble Phantasm?
Makes my Servant a Servant?

I do believe my questions render
Rin Tousaka speechless.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap100.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: That would mean you aren't making full use of your Servant's powers, and yet you defeated El Draque?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: And here I thought you'd relied on a really potent Noble Phantasm to defeat El Draque.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: No, Caster just burned and froze her until she couldn't keep up.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg:…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: …Hmm. I might have to rethink my opinion of you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: But, more and more, I'm getting the feeling that somethng's very off about you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: I mean, your memories didn't return after prelims, and you can't use your Noble Phantasm, either.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: You're a troublesome individual, you know that?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Maybe a bug damaged your personal data when you exited the prelims.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Possibly your Magic Circuit isn't functioning right. In any case, you have to fix the issue.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap109.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: You may be able to use their Noble Phantasm if you strengthen your bond with your Servant.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: The SE.RA.PH is supposed to treat all Masters equally.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: If the SE.RA.PH sees that you can't use your Noble Phantasm, it will take corrective action.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: One more thing. Defeating an enemy isn't an invitation to forget that enemy ever existed.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: It's helpful to know about who you've fought, so take the time to look over your Matrix.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap115.jpg

We go to the 1st floor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap116.jpg

That's right. This smiling girl is
A Servant, one just as capable of
displaying incredible powers.

Now that I'm a Master, of course
I can't avoid my curiosity about
this Noble Phantasm thing.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Anytime you want to se my Noble Phantasm, just ask. It takes the shape of my legendary feats.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg:Using my Noble Phantasm will expose my identity, so you better be not be careless with it.

The first be is useless methinks.

I understand how a great warrior's
tactics and tools could telegraph
their identity to a wise Master.

It will be most advantageous if I
wait as long as possible to use
the Noble Phantasm.

The computer beeps, which ends the
conversation for now.

I'll learn Caster's identity in
due time.

She says I'll know eventually, so
I don't think it's right for me to
keep questioning.

The computer beeps, which ends the

I'll learn Caster's identity in

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap126.jpg

A trial, huh…? Right, if I don't
acquire both Triggers, I won't be
able to enter the battle.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Looks like we have a task to do! Let's complete it as quick as we can, Master!

More student talking is it then.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap129.jpg

Male Student: I mean… Tomorrow we'll be putting our lives on the line. It's kill or be killed, you know?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap131.jpg

Female Student: I mean, Shinji was a total dirtbag, but his hacking skills should've been enough to crush you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: …

Female Student: Seriously, though. I thought that you'd be one of the first to fall. To think you're not dead yet…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: I can hear you, you know.

Female Student: Did I say that out loud? Oh man, my bad. I shouldn't have said that to your face…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Oh gee, you think?

Female Student: Anyway, it was obvious you won. Otherwise I wouldn't be here talking to you, right?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap136.jpg

Male Student: The I saw who I had yo face next, my mind went totally blank. Seriously, total shutdown.

Male Student: I guess the old saying, "karma can be a fickle mistress" still holds true even here…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap139.jpg

Female Student: He's obviously upset about something, but…he's kind of freaking me out, you know?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap141.jpg

Female Student: Once we finished the first round, it was so surreal. I still feel like I'm dreaming…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap143.jpg

Male Student: Talk about dodging a bullet! My opponent was DQ'd after failing to get both Triggers.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap145.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap146.jpg

Sweet, Ether Shard recover 200HP. For Caster that's a lot.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap147.jpg

Female Student: Of course, there's a pretty good chance that ours will get taken as well. Cheery thought, huh?

And now what you have been waiting for. The Aozaki sisters being themselves.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap149.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: They've been weakened by their Master's rank. You'd better get them back to full strength ASAP.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: In a world of oddities, Touko speaking with a lowly Master is the oddest. Must be the e-cigs…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Exactly! No coffee, no tobacco, and I'm forced to spend my days with a mouth-breathing imbecile!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Only the insane could enjoy being trapped here. I can't wait to finish here and ditch this body.

…Touko Aozaki continues her
tirade but there is something
odd about her choice of words.

And what exactly does she mean
by "ditch this body" anyway?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Did I mumble? One a magus enters the SE.RA.PH, they can't leave until they get the Holy Grail.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: But i'm not a Master meaning that I'm pretty much trapped here unless I take drastic measures-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Such as create a version of myself that'll self-destruct once my business in the SE.RA.PH is done.

…Umm… I see what she means,
but her resolve is beyond my
ability to comprehend.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: Ignore her. She's just a twisted degenerate who showers what little emotion she has on her dolls.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: The difference between her and her copies are miniscule. Think the difference between genius and…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg:Anyway, just take everything she says with a boatload of salt. So, up for an Alteration now?

We ain't so we leave.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap163.jpg

Male Student: If I don't somehow manage to stay calm, I won't survive even the easiest of battles.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap165.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg:Is this going to be a thing? Because I really don't want it to be one.

Male Student: Sorry about the lack of faith. But to survive the next round you'll need to get even stronger.

Male Student: Be sure to buy everything you'll think you'll need for the trials coming in the week ahead.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap168.jpg

Male Student: When I defeated my enemy… they actually died. I thought his was supposed to be a video game…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap170.jpg

Female Student: Next time, my opponent will be stronger, and that's fine.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap172.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: It's a thing.

Female Student: In any case, congratulations.

Anyway, to the Arena we go.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap175.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap176.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: So be on your guard always. And I will not tolerate you acting solely on your "gut feelings."

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap178.jpg

???: And anyway, they've already killed once, have they not?

???:Anyone who made it through the first round is worthy of a little respect. Or is that just me…?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: Your arrogance will be the death of us. I need you to obey my commands if we are to survive.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: No more acting on your own like the first round. Winning battles is meaningless if we lose the war.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: Do you understand me? I will not tolerate your insubordination a second time.

???: I got it, I got it. Jeez old man, you can be a real pain in the ass sometimes.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap185.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: More impressive by far is the Master. He's obviously an experienced soldier!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: That punk from round one was a joke. This old warhorse is going to be much more of a challenge.

So we try to enter the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap188.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: We might end up having to fight them. I hope you've been up on your preparation.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: If there are any loose threads you need to take care of, do so now while you have the time.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap191.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Okay, let's get going! Be careful though, this opponent is going to be tougher than the last.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap193.jpg

No suspicious activities capt'n.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap194.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap195.jpg

Not pictured yet: Everything going negative.

However, I can't bring myself to move.
It feels like both of my feet have
been nailed to the floor.

It's almost as if my body and mind
have become disconnected and fear
has taken over my basic instincts.

I know that I have to get away as
quickly as possible. The longer
I stay here, the faster that death
will come to claim me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap199.jpg

Um, what is happening to me is far
more serious than "zoning out"… But
oddly, that comment seems to free me.

The sound of Caster's voice somehow
relieves my paralyzing anxiety.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap202.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Well, if he thinks this will give him an advantage, he's an even bigger idiot than I thought.

Just looking at the always optimistic
Caster is enough to put me at ease.

However, if this is a result of the enemy's
Noble Phantasm, we still
remain at a serious disadvantage.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap206.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: If we destroy the source of the field all of this will clear away in a heartbeat.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Let's get going, Master. The source of the enemy's poison has to be somewhere around here!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Oh God, I'mgonnadieI'mgonnadieimgonnadie

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap209.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg:… That's it?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap210.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: If we destroy it, then it's goodbye to the poison. Let's go!

So we continue running toward the tree when…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap213.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap214.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap215.jpg

If Fate/Stay Night has taught me anything, is that the reckless choice is the correct one.

The enemy doesn't seem to be aware of
us, and I have Caster by my side. Only
a fool would pass up this opportunity.

I catch Caster's attention with a
meaningful glance and start forward.

And then the green guy turns and shoots Caster.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap218.jpg

Or Hooters. Probably Hooters.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap219.jpg

Just before my consciousness fades
into oblivion, my gazer is drawn to
the Servant clad in green.

Suddenly, a sharp pain runs through
me as what feels like a burning rod
pierces my back, and my vision fades.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap222.jpg

As my consciousness fades, I not
only hear the mocking voice of the
enemy Servant, but I think I hear
Caster calling out of me.

…I now realize that we don't have a healing artifact that works at h4xx levels. Well Safe choice is it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap225.jpg

I give Caster a meaningful nod and
try to quiet my breathing.

Attacking now would be a bad idea,
especially since I can probably get a
lot of information just by listening.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap228.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: What's that? I put up this little barrier so that you'd win, boss.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg. Why wait until the Elimination Battle to take them out? If they drop out now, it'll be an easy victory for us.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: Who gave you the command to do such a deed?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: Even scavengers such as vultures that feed upon carrion have at least a single shred of dignity.

It's obvious by the heat in their
voices that they disagree about what
strategy they want to follow.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap234.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: It seems to me that you lack the most important of traits: Pride.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap237.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: I mean, I'm all for it if that's all we need to win this whole thing.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: Really, it'd be the best thing in the world if our enemies would just kill themselves in the face of our Pride!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: Sorry, I'm not nearly the man you are. I'm just a pragmatist that'll resort to poison if it'll guarantee a kill.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap241.jpg

The Servant put up the barrier on his
own. It's obvious that there is
disagreement about his actions.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap243.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I can't deny his resourcefulness, but since the dawn of time the weak have always hidden behind clever schemes.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: If the strong were to use poison, it'd almost like cheating. I can see why Gramps is scolding his Servant!

Dan lowers his voice, although it's
hard to determine whether he's doing
so from scorn or disdain.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap247.jpg

After a somewhat petulant reply of
"Gotcha," the sense of their presences
disappears and I sigh in relief.

So there is discord between my enemy and his Servant.
While the differences in ability between us is great,
this might be my key to victory in the second round.

We continue toward the tree.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap250.jpg

Magic flows from where the tree
towers over the Arena.

There is so much of it that those
who are unprepared would drown
in poison.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap253.jpg

Caster strikes the tree down.

With a single swing of Caster's arm,
the tree that generated the barrier
vanishes as if it had never existed.

The moment the source of the barrier
disappears, so does the pressure and
pain crushing my body.

But, this barrier… We need to
watch out for this Servant.

I leave the area to focus. First,
I need more information.

How cute, trying to railroad me.

We find the Trigger.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap261.jpg

Spoils: 2 level ups (lvl 10), Remedy, Durable Gym Clothes (Formal Wear).

And we leave.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/snap262.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Here's why we'll win… The old guy doesn't get along with his Servant.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: But, you and I are a perfect combo, so we're going to win!

Out of interest, how are you dumping the text? Are you transcribing or did you rip the script somehow?

Laith

Transcribing, I have no knowledge how to rip stuff sop...

In fact if you check there's a lot of typos here and there that the Autocorrect... corrects wrongly.

I like this thread!:ciel:
I will continue to read the Chronicles of Hooters McBoobs!

Shame I missed the naming vote. Though, considering the winning names,
I should probably have suggested Tits McGee (http://youtu.be/0lknl9kyERo). Not that it matters now.
I'm not good with naming, anyways. ;_;

Also:

"My name will be remembered as Temeroso El Drago* the woman who set the sun"

* The fearful Drago. Spanish and all.
Wrong Spanish at that. It should "El Temeroso Drago". Or maybe "La Temerosa Drago".
Otherwise it sounds like "Fearful El Drago" (As in frightened. Lol). (Also, it's Draque. I google'd it. :3)
*shrug* Meh.
:neco_arc:

Anyways, good work with this LP, good sir.
:ciel:

Laith
January 30th, 2012, 04:02 PM
If you want to make it completely Spanish it would be El Drago Temeroso since Spanish structure is article+noun+adjective. Or well at least the Spanish that I speak is like that. Decided to leave like that because English.

Hmm...true. Although either case is fine. Trust me about it. *points to country of origin*
In any case, it wasn't a serious correction.
If you see this in any post by me: (:neco_arc:), it's usually not entirely serious.
Was just a thought, don't worry.


Decided to leave like that because English.
Indeed.
Let us enjoy the LP, then.:neco_arc:

Laith
January 30th, 2012, 05:57 PM
Eh I supposed it wasn't serious but I take my languages seriously, for an interesting take on seriously. Also I know is correct either way but in Mexican Spanish seeing the adjective before the noun sounds quite strange.

Eh, it's okay. I also kind of take my languages seriously (although only English, for some reason).

But, no worries.
Now, I'll stop derailing the thread.

That's definitely Leo giving the
refined greeting.

Leo's Servant is at his usual post
behind Leo, looming there like a
silver Shadow.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Dick1.jpg:…

Gawain preserves his silence. So
the next voice is not his, but
that of a man near Leo.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: I am a novice to the battlefield, but my family decided that I was to be the one to go.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: It's an embarrassing confession to make to such a seasoned knight.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: The almighty Grail… The Holy Grail is to be yours?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Of course. We harways must have it under our control, especially if its guardianship is vacant.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Something so divine does not belong in the hands of a normal man, but in the embrace of a king.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: This Holy Grail War is annoying, but what can you do?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 2/snap014.jpg

Leo's talking to my opponent in
the second round, Dan.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 2/snap017.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: Oh no, I feel unsuitably roused.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: To think that at this age I would see the honor in questing for the Holy Grail!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 2/snap020.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 2/snap021.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Because of you Sir Blackmore. You are not only a veteran, but a knight decorated by the Queen.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: The fact that a man of your rank has been dispatched is proof that the Grail is real.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: What are you saying, young king? I am just an old soldier.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: The Queen could not spare a young life for this battle royal, hence I was called upon.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: You're close to the Queen, so you must have heard her displeasure at a certain allied organization.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: Well, the Queen's intention do not reach a simple soldier's ears.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 2/snap028.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: I shall take my leave. Let us be off, Gawain.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Dick1.jpg: As you wish.

After bidding farewell to Dan
Leo notices me and stops.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 2/snap032.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: I had heard you passed the first round. Congratulations.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Are you ready for the second round? I'd wish you luck, but… It's strange.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: The black knight's lance has splintered. No, perhaps he has exchanged it for a sword.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: If his conviction is no longer what it used to be, then perhaps…you have a genuine shot at victory.

Leo doesn't elaborate any further
before leaving.

Dan also left while I wasn't paying
any attention.

What the heck were they talking
about in the first place…?

The harder I try to understand,
the less of it makes sense.

All I really grasped was that they
both really want the Holy Grail.

I don't believe there's some magic
dream-granting cup out there. But
if they're both convinced…

Evening.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 2/snap043.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Why don't we go to the Arena? Once we perfect our attacks, we'll show him what's what!

Caster's right. If I don't get
my abilities up to par, I won't
have a chance at winning.

Well we are now free to talk to everyone.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 2/snap046.jpg

Male Student: …Let's just hope we don't get paired, then.

You know this guy is a bro. Shine on you bro NPC.

Female Student: In other words, I have to kill my opponent to stay alive.

Female Student: Instead of feeling proud that I won, I only feel disgust.

…It makes cultural sense, won't rage about it. Kk moving on.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 2/snap059.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 2/snap062.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 2/snap064.jpg

Male Student: So, stop talking to me. Consorting with an enemy will dull my blade.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 2/snap066.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 2/snap067.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 2/snap069.jpg

The same mechanical expression
and speech. Who, or what, could
this girl possibly be?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I believe that this is our first time to actually converse like normal people, is it not?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 2/snap077.jpg

I've seen this beautiful, exotic
girl many times before. This is
the first time we've spoken.

To hear real emotion in her voice
is a relief. It's nice to speak
with a fellow human being.

Confirmed, Tousaka is not a human being.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: So I wish to ask you directly, and please answer honestly, this question: What are you?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 2/snap082.jpg

Hooters McBoobs, second-year
student of Tsukumihara Academy
That's all I am-

No, that can't be right. The
school is just a setting for the
preliminaries- So what…am I?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: So you will hide your identity? Even after exposing yourself to Blackmore's Servant yesterday?

-Someone saw me?!

There shouldn't have been
anyone else there beside me
and my opponent.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 2/snap088.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I did not watch your battle. I am simply relaying what it is the stars say about you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I'm looking for the newborn chick my professor spoke of. The stars have aided me in that task.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I am not sure if you are who I seek, but…

Maybe she's an astrologer, but I
don't really understand her. She
seems…mostly harmless, though.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I must study the heavens further. But I must ask you to tell me more of Blackmore's star.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: It may seem like I'm asking for a lot, but the knowledge revealed will benefit you, I think.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: And as ore Atlas, I wish to show you the true value of knowledge and will share my findings.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I'll use you, and you'll use me. …What do you think? Will you accept my request?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 2/snap097.jpg

The other choice cuts to where Rani starts talking.

In addition to investigating Dan,
it seems she already knows all
about me… a terrifying thought.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Information is everything in this war. Of course our enemies are trying to learn about us!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I don't know what they've learned so far, but while I'm here they could attack at any time!

…that's really bad editing.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I apologize. But to understand my professor's words, I must first understand humanity.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: This is what he said: As a doll, you must find someone who is truly alive and observe them.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I believe that he wants me to find out, by watching humans, what it means ti be alive.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I don't know if you are the one, but perhaps…your star will shine apart from the others.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I must…observe other people. You, and Blackmore as well. That is why I need your help.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Please bring me a relic of his. I will be waiting at the far end of the third floor hallway.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: When you come to see me, we will gaze into the heavens together.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I' sure you see the value in learning what Blackmore's star will have to say, right?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: The best time to read his star will come in three days. Please find a relic of his by then.

With a final "Until we meet
again," she gives me a last smile
before turning her attention back
to the sky outside the window.

A girl of many mysteries. And
oddly enough…I couldn't detect
any animosity from her.

If it'll help me learn about Dan,
I'll be sure to find something
and bring it to the third floor.

Anyway let's continue.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Well, a persimmon that a friend gave me as a gift somehow got sent to the Arena by mistake.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: …But I don't know whose Arena it was sent to. So I'm throwing up the Taiga Signal to all students…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg:So, do you think you could help me out by searching your Arena?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: It'll be two days before it gets reported as a system error, so please get it before then!

Pragmatism, ho!

Evening.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap000.jpg

That was short.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap001.jpg

Male Student: Er, this isn't such a forgiving fight that you can break off friendships and fix them later.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap003.jpg

Female Student: Why did I enter a game like this? even if I win, I'll be scarred for life.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap005.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap006.jpg

Male Student: I ran into him outside the chapel. He's intimidating. Glad he's yours and not mine.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap010.jpg

Female Student: Is everyone in the Arena?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap012.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap013.jpg

Female Student: Your Servant is always measuring whether upcoming conditions are dangerous for you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap015.jpg

Oh boy, oh boy. Everyone who missed this on their playthrough should read this.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap029.jpg

Let's move on.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap030.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: To run to a place where the enemy will have an advantage is sheer idiocy.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap032.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: This is sufficient. Next we will view the stars on the fifth day, when there will be many visible.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap034.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: it would be a huge upset if you won, because it's almost certain you'll lose this time.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap036.jpg

Male Student: It will allow you to cure your Servant of any status ailments.

Male Student: Who knows, there may come a time when having this ability available will save your life.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap039.jpg

=D

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap040.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap041.jpg

Hoo boy, this is going to be useful.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap042.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap043.jpg

Although appreciated, I don't
need Caster's warning to know
that someone is watching me.

There's no doubt that I am being
stalked by a Servant.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Here's the plan: When I give you the signal, RUN!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap047.jpg

As long as the enemy is not an Archer we should be okay

I try to calm down and prepare
for action as Caster and I make
eye contact.

One, two, three?

I need to find a place with decent
visibility- Oh, the schoolyard
would be good.

I'll be in plain sight there, but
so will my enemy.

Gasping for breath, I run past the
shoe rack. I'm almost there!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap053.jpg

Right when I'd almost made it to
the schoolyard-

An unpleasant sensation rips into
the join of my neck and back, like
a steel rod has been jammed in.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap056.jpg

Look how happy she is that we have been murdered.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap058.jpg

Something warm oozes down my back,
and I feel myself growing cooler
with each heartbeat.

I wonder what Caster had been
yelling about?

I guess I'll never know. My body
refuses to function anymore.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap062.jpg

Welp.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap063.jpg

I try to calm down and prepare
for action as Caster and I make
eye contact.

One, two, three?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap066.jpg

We enter the Arena automatically.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap068.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap069.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Let's find a wide open place and crush him to smithereens.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: *Smirk* Let's show him our true nature- I mean, true power.

We get to the open area on the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap073.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap074.jpg

Schrodinger's Archer. An arrow is shot and Caster blocks it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap076.jpg

Caster blocked the arrow that had
been aimed at us the moment we
entered the Arena-

Or so I thought.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap080.jpg

It makes me nauseous-more nauseous
than seeing a small wound like that
would warrant.

Caster stopped the surprise attack,
but while I was focused on running
away, there was a second arrow.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap083.jpg

I struggle to stay conscious as
the poison starts to course through
my system.

Whoever that Servant is, they landed
a really good shot. There's no doubt
that the enemy is an Archer.

What good is knowing that going to
do me if I die? Before the poison
spreads, I have to retreat to a
safer place…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap087.jpg

Finally.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: As… long as it's as strong as the tree…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap088.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Never mind then.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap089.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap090.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap091.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap094.jpg

And we leave, not very scratched but still very poisoned..

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 2/Day 3/snap095.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Does it hurt?! Do you feel ill?! Can you still move around okay?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Urgh…It's all my fault for being such a worthless Servant. You should never, ever forgive me, Master.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: But I'm still really happy that it's not too serious. The poison will go away by tomorrow.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: Just to be careful, let's go to the nurse's office tomorrow and get you some tender loving care. *Giggle*

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: This Servant is pretty smart to use poison arrows. So they're an Archer. Rrrgh, how annoying!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: Grrr… I'll pay back the injury done to my Master a hundred fold!

Matrix Check.

Everyone has magic resistance in this war it seems. Poor Casters.

Next up: Caster chatter and knightly duties.

Also, I finally made the DS emulator run perfectly. Temptation to LP a DS game is raising.

Thanks for doing this LP. I don't have a PSP and have no interest in getting one, so you're saving me a lot of trouble here.

I found the bits with Rani here really interesting, largely because she's still such an enigma. I think Saber's still my favorite Extra character, though. She's kind of a doof but I love her anyway.

Laith

Glad you are enjoying the LP.

Rani, well I'm not exactly unbiased on my opinion for her (love her, love her arc, prefer her over Extra!Rin,etc.) so...

Saber is love and once we get onto her route and see all her silliness you'll see how much of a lovable idiot she is.:neco_arc:

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: I don't know how much of it I can treat with my abilities, but I'll do what I can.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: But, you can't let this happen to you again. You only have one body, okay? Treat it well.

Sakura Matou administers a detox
treatment to me on a bed in the
nurse's office.

She must be giving me treatment
because it was inflicted outside
the Elimination Battles.

While I dwell on that thought, the
doors to the nurse's office open,
admitting a surprise visitor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%204/snap007.jpg

The unexpected caller is my enemy
Master. I try to ready myself, but
I have no strength to call upon.

However, his actions greatly betray
my expectations.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: I've destroyed the Noble Phantasm, the source of the poisoned arrows. Their effects should dissipate.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: Please, accept this token of my apology, if only to humor me.

What does this man standing by my
bed mean that he disabled his
Noble Phantasm?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%204/snap013.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: To break the sovereign rules of the battlefield is to sunder the fabric of your character.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: This war is between individuals, not countries. There is no longer any need to resort to savagery.

A quiet conversation

There's something unshakable about
the conviction underlying those
solemn words.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%204/snap019.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: I hereby prohibit any attacks on enemy Masters with your Yew Bow while on campus.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: What?! Are you crazy, boss…?! I thought you wanted this to be an easy win!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%204/snap025.jpg

-The Command Seals.
The three absolute commands that
a Master may give their Servant.

Astonishingly, this old knight in
front of me just used one of his
Command Seals to force his own
Servant to fight fairly.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: Please understand that my Servant acted improperly and against my deepest wishes.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: I intend to grasp victory only on the battlefield proper. I hope you can forgive this incident.

That said, Dan turns around and
walks off.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: He's scary determined, but even moss can overcome a rock. Kinda like, love can conquer all?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Aagh, what a bother!

The second Trigger has appeared.
I need to find it before the
Elimination Battle begins.

I'd better head to the Arena while
I still can.

Matrix check.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%204/snap041.jpg
and death that caused this Servant to remark that
he wanted to be buried where his final arrow
fell. To nobody's surprise, it landed at the foot
of the yew tree where he first got the wood to
make his bow.

Well to do the same as always.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%204/snap050.jpg

Male Student: Pretty pointless of him, though, since he screwed up. Or rather, you thwarted his plans.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%204/snap052.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: Sir Blackmore will be heavily penalized for his actions. Also, failure pains him greatly.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: What the penalty is? As a result, a heavy revision of a Servant's ability score will be put in place.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%204/snap060.jpg

Male Student: I heard that you were attacked on campus, but I guess you managed to survive.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Hooters, a student asked me for help, but you'd do a better job. So could you help them instead?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Sure.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: You're a lifesaver! It seems one of the girls dropped her glasses in the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: She said they dropped to the bottom of the Arena's second floor, but she isn't sure.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: It'd be grate if you could poke around the second floor of your Arena as well.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: She lost them on the second floor. Please try to find them sometime during the second round. Thanks!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%204/snap070.jpg

Female Student: You blew it? Wow, you…suck. If my Servant was on the case he'd have beheaded the jerk.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%204/snap072.jpg

Male Student: I guess all's fair in love and war. Odd how none of this popped up in the first round, though.

That's because most of the people still thought of this as a game.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%204/snap074.jpg

Female Student: Could there be something that you yearn for?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%204/snap076.jpg

Male Student: What am I up to? I was thinking about ways to make food here contain 100% more deliciousness.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%204/snap078.jpg

Male Student: Having this equipped will allow you to use the Field Attack ability in battle.

Male Student: This technique will give you an edge in battle, especially if the enemy is out of your league.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%204/snap081.jpg

Male Student: I know she's just an NPC, but the moment I saw the white robe, I was in L-O-V-E.

Hey it's the guy from the prologue. What da ya know, he survived.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%204/snap083.jpg

Female Student: It feels energizing to jog.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%204/snap085.jpg

Female Student: Even so, some Masters aren't afraid to break them, or their Servants take the initiative.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%204/snap090.jpg

Male Student: …You were attacked while on campus? I guess there's no safety to be found in this place.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%204/snap092.jpg

Suuuure, Taiga. We all believe you. The Mystic Eye killers were a "student's". You don't have any superpowers of your own.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap001.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Uuuhhmn… Uhm, hum, I think helping others is good and all, buuut…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Don't you think using a Command Seal is maybe going a bit too far…?

I've never seen Caster act so
timid. I guess there are people
in the world that'll cow even her.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap005.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: To use one of the three Command Seals given to me to help my enemy, of all things…

Command Seals… Three irrefutable
commands given to all the Masters
in the Holy Grail War.

If it's within the rules, they
will guarantee that an action is
performed, whatever the cost.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: But it was the right thing to do. Also, I'm here on behalf of her Majesty, the Queen…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: It has been a long time since… No, this is the first time a fight has been for personal reasons.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: As a mere soldier, I'd have praised Archer's actions. As a knight, I must condemn them.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: And as I did, I could almost feel as if the spirit of my wife approved, and was proud of me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap013.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: It's the same story every old man has. It's been so long I've even forgotten the sound of her voice.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: …It's an obvious truth. As a soldier, one is required to abide by military regulations.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: There are no allowances made for even one such as myself to go beyond what is permitted.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: You should take care, too. The ends don't always justify the means.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: Regret is an insidious thing. If you let it, it will blind you to the future and all it holds.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: So know this young lady: I will never condone any conduct that would stain my conscience.

…Nothing more came from what
seemed to be an apology of sorts.

And beyond the journey itself,
the path to the Grail lies in
dignity and self-respect.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: It's odd that I'd speak like this to you. You'd do well to laugh at the musings of this old man.

With that said, the old man
closed his eyes.

It'd be the worst form of bad
manners to disturb him while
he's praying.

It'd be better if I just leave.

Evening.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap026.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: This is a great chance to get an added advantage and it'd be stupid to waste it. Lucky us!

Well same thing as always.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap028.jpg

Male Student: I was so not expecting that! She's so scary, always mumbling about the stars and stuff…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap030.jpg

Female Student: I haven't retrieved my Triggers. I better hurry.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap032.jpg

Male Student: Your opponent got farther with you than mine did with me, but that's a good thing for you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap034.jpg

Female Student: He's got a hold on you, though. Well, none of my beeswax. He's not my opponent.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap036.jpg

Male Student: Never let your guard down.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap038.jpg

Male Student: I think the chivalry bug got him bad. He thinks he's a real knight.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap040.jpg

Female Student: It's actually three seals. Every time a Command Seal is used, one of them disappears.

Female Student: When you use up the last one, your participation in the tournament is revoked. So you can only use two.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap043.jpg

Female Student: Adjusting the settings is key to your success, too.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap045.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: While I'm envious that you gained the trust of such a woman, do not let lust cloud your judgment.

…Even on the Moon Cell, Issei cockblocking us. God, this is why you are not the bestest bro.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap047.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: What's wrong with my assessment? I think it's totally fair.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap049.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I give you my thanks. You bought it at the right time as I can read Sir Blackmore's star today.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap053.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: My professor's words are my guide. He told me specifically to learn about humans.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: So please put your mind at ease. You have nothing to worry about from me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Learning more about Sir Blackmore will help your cause as well, correct?

With her mechanical reasoning,
Rani examines what might be
Archer's arrow. She mumbles and
then nods in understanding.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg; With this…

Brushing the object softly with
her fingers, Rani closes her eyes
and turns her face to the sky.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg: The fate of which the stars speak, you can learn many things if you simply open your mind.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg:The star which governs Sir Blackmore's Servant shines brightly in the heavens today.

To be honest, I have no clue as
to what astrology is or what it's
supposed to accomplish, but-

She claims that today certain
portents can be read in the stars,
and I believe that she can see
things about his Servant.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Astrology? I'm pretty good at it, but she seems to be an astrologer of the highest order.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: But I really want to know more about this professor person. Maybe she'll tell us more about him…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: But maybe this isn't the time to indulge my curiosity. We need to focus on that Archer for now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg: I fond myself in a…forest? It's deep, dark…

Running her hand along Archer's
arrow, the now entranced Rani
begins speaking in a quiet tone.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg: An incredibly…dark color. At times a harbinger of infamy… A life spent in darkness…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg: Admiration mixed with trepidation, the color of the solitary path he walks.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg: His green-clad form blends in with the forest. He snipes his enemies from the shadows…

It seems that the Servant's way
of life created a Noble Phantasm
that would conceal him.

A life that consisted of cowering
in the darkness, shooting his
enemies from afar.

It seems totally at odds with
Dan, who would fight with
dignity and honor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg: …I agree. I think that there must be some sort of longing hidden deep within his soul.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg: A desire to live an honest life, out in the full light and warmth of the sun.

I wrack my brain trying to think
of a hero out of legend who'd
fit such a description.

I start with those who are heroes
because they were named so.
Although, that'll take a while.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Well, I'm definitely not a hero. Hatefully cute, awesome wife; definitely! I feel bad for him…

I wonder if the Legendary Soul
I find myself allied with shares
the same bleak history.

As I try to follow this line of
thought, Rani begins to speak
again in the same quiet tone.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: This may not be the one that I am searching for… To say clearly, I'm not sure though.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Longing, is the reason for this fissure. This is something told by my professor, a part of humans that I understand.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I can feel him deep within the second floor of the Arena. Maybe you should talk to him directly.

After lowering her head in a bow
and thanking me again, she once
again turns her eyes to the sky.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap086.jpg

I wonder if 'll mesh with
anything. With my Servant, with
all that's happening to me.

That's all for Rani.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap088.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap089.jpg

Male Student. I take ot you're more of a rice ball person? Let me see what I can do with the powers that be.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap091.jpg

Female Student: If that's the case, even if you win, you lose. You'll get hit with a penalty either way.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap093.jpg

Male Student: Is he just slow or is it due to a bug in the Grail War system? Either way, he's a goner.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap095.jpg

Female Student: He's always in the chapel, but instead of doing Alterations of the Soul, he merely prays.

Female Student: I wonder: Is he's praying for the souls of those he's defeated, or for the absolution of his own?

Either the first should be an If, or you get rid of the "'s" after he. After consideration, the 's should go thanks to the ":."

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap098.jpg

Female Student: Hey! What's the big idea, you? Eavesdropping on someone who's talking to herself!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap100.jpg

Still "=D"ing

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap101.jpg

Male Student: But she said, "Didn't I already give you medicine?" Maybe I need to break my leg or something.

…I still say the joke is too obvious.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap103.jpg

Female Student: I had no idea a Noble Phantasm could be defensive. I wonder which Legendary Soul it belongs to?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap105.jpg

Female Student: I wish he'd tell me what's wrong. I know I'd be able to cheer him up… at least I think I could…

The Arena Entrance.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap107.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Coming to the chapter in remembrance of his wife? It's just so… tragic… *Sniff*

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: He might be a good guy after all. I still have every intention of beating him to a pulp, though…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Having to fight someone like him… It's so depressing. Let's go before I start crying.

While I share Caster's feelings
about Dan, I'm glad that it hasn't
affected her will to fight.

Well, I suppose we should head
to the Arena now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap113.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap114.jpg

Prospect of violence = A happy Caster.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap117.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap118.jpg

With a hand on their weapon, my
Servant squints their eyes upon
hearing Dan's and Archer's words.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap120.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap122.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Ah, I see. Maybe you're jealous of that old man and are trying to be like him, appearing openly like this.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg:…!

Caster's words seem to take Archer
totally by surprise, as if her words
touch on the enemy's very core.

For a moment, his normally calm
demeanor became incredibly flustered.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap127.jpg

Archer's eyes shine with evil intent.
As he reaches under his cape, I fear
he may unleash his Noble Phantasm.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap129.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: you do realize who I am, don't you? Asking me to fight ote-to-toe… Are you drunk or something?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap133.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: Hahaha. I really don't get it. If you take away the element of surprise, what else is there left for me?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: My looks, maybe? My sweet, handsome face! Alas, its power only work on simple village lasses!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: The fight with that in mind. A sniper such as myself would know more than anyone else about your skills.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: And what I know would send chills through most people. I have confidence in you, Archer.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg:…It's not like I have a choice. I disapprove of all of this, but I will obey. He is my Master, after all.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: Fortunately for me, my opponent os a mere chick. I rarely attack directly, but it shouldn't matter in this case.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap141.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Master, I think there's something wrong with my ears. I just heard something that's beyond moronic.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap143.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Ah. I was just struck with a thought. I will never get along with green boy.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: I was thinking the same about a certain overgrown fox. Your Master is a rookie. Clear enough for you?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I get it now. It's not my ears that are at fault, but that diseased lump you call your brain. I thought so.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Or did you intend for your pathetic mewling to be some kind of riotous joke?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I was hoping for a bit more sincerity in your sarcasm… Seriously, is bird and fox the best you can do?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: But considering your position as a self-proclaimed pseudo-hero, maybe being imaginative is beyond you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg:…Goddamned fox. But then again, I was always pretty good at hunting down foxes.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: Sorry, but this is where things get serious. Cry and beg all you want, I won't forgive you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Is that so? I pity weaklings like you, but if that was a joke I'd only leave you half-dead.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: If you were even one percent serious, I'd never forgive you. I think you need to die. Now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: I'm turning you into a pincushion right now! It's been a while since I've hunted such interesting game!

One thing I love about this game, the trash talking and taunting. It's so amusing. As we'll see later and you can probably deduct by now, Archer, the red one, is a master at this.

Anyway there is a 3 turn fight. Caster doesn't get touched except on one attack.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap155.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: I will not allow vulgar and petulant language, Archer. As my Servant, I wish for you to behave as a knight.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: Ugh… You sure are suffocating Mr. Boss Man. I know, I know, foul play and stuff is a no-no.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: …Jeez, cut off my arms and legs already. Ever heard of these things people have called personalities?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: Well, if I have to, the best archers can shoot with their teeth…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg:Ha, pretty hardcore! All right, I'll be your knight in shining armor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: I'm not so hot at being a knight, but I'm not too bad with a lance.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg: Excellent spirit. We are already en route to the next battlefield. Do not let your focus sway.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%205/snap163.jpg

You barely got hit.

Once we're sure that Dan and Archer
have left, Caster realizes a little.
A small smile forms on her lips.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Did you hear, Master? He spoke of where he was from. -Sherwood Forest.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: That woman, Rani or whatever, her astrology reading was extraordinary. She was right on the mark.

Also Dan mentioned a fairly important
keyword, the Faceless King.

With this new info, I think I'm closing
in on Archer's true name. I should look
into this more when I return to campus.

Next up: Caster chatter, for real this time.

Also there may be a delay with the next update, I want to start practicing for the fic contest, so I really need to get on that writing thing. Should be a 2/3 day delay at most.

February 3rd, 2012, 06:36 PM
Only enough to reach the Target Level, nothing more. For example, against Rider all the Servants were lvl 8. Against Archer all will be lvl 14, etc. I dislike being overleveled, it takes out all of the fun.

Wifely Talks.
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap000.jpg

Caster is so perceptive. When I
glance over, she looks genuinely
concerned about me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: It's fine. I'm not going to let that backwoods scoundrel get the best of me!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: See? You'll be fine because you are with, me Master!

Her smile makes everything sly
right. I can't help believing her
when she say things are fine.

But, there's still something I
need to ask her-
Will she use her Noble Phantasm?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Hmmm… If you'd like to see it…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: But, I don't need it to deal with this guy.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Do you believe in me, Master?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap009.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Yeah! I'll put in 200%, just watch me!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap011.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: *Giggle*… Without his trademark color, that sly fox will have an identity crisis!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Can I ask you a little favor? Um, if you win, please… praise me.

After talking to Caster, I feel
like all the butterflies in my
stomach have disappeared.

I wish I could bottle this good
feeling and take it to the battle
tomorrow. For now, though, I'll
finish my preparations.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap016.jpg

=B

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: …Huh? O-Okay? …Er… that's not what I mean.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg; But, I'll do my absolute best if you'll believe in me, Master!

Well today is a free day. We have three matrix levels and we lack only one level from the target. Unlike Shinji, Dan will play fair so yeah.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap019.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap020.jpg

Male Student: That's a good thing. Predicting your enemy's move gets easier the more you know.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap022.jpg

Female Student: You… Sorry, I didn't realize you were still alive.

And so we go to another edition of Fox and Wife.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap024.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: Let all your cares drift away, especially the ones about the bad, bad man!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap028.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: Poo. You just thought "She's an airhead," didn't you, Master?

I dodge the question with a vigorous
shake of the head.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg:Harrumph. My memory is as sound as any human's, you know!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I just don¡t pay attention to things I don't care about.

Caster pouts. She's sensitive to
criticism, so she doesn't like her
flightiness being pointed out.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: More importantly, now that we're two rounds in to the Holy Grail War, do you feel more comfortable, Master?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Do you need more support? Do you need anything more at all, not just in the Arena…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Oh! Maybe you would prefer more intimate time with me-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Oh my! I can't believe I said that out loud! How embarrassing!

She's embarrassed?
I'M the embarrassed one!

Why Caster puts on this innocent
persona, I have no clue. It's more
faux than her fur.

Video Here.
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap040.jpg (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdfVO36Lhxs)

Battles are becoming second nature
to me. Enemy Master interference
aside, exploring the Arena is fun.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: That's so great, Master. You really know how to make a Servant proud.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: It's nice to see a former combat virgin speaking so confidently. But there's more to learn!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap045.jpg

…Although combat is becoming
normal, Caster's personality
still throws me for a loop.

She's always enthusiastic about
helping me, but at the same time,
she disengages pretty quickly.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: -Anyway, isn't it nice to relax like this?!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Your lovely Servaant would like to give you a treat. Close your eyes andopen your mouth…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Oops, not that kind of treat.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I meant, why don't you ask anything you want about me, and I'll answer!

Caster hands me something unusual.

It's a calligraphy brush. She then
produces paper and an inkstone-
God knows where she got them.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap057.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap058.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap060.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap061.jpg

Well, duh, that's what I think.
It's obvious that Caster is weak
compared to the other Servants.

Since her abilities are so unique,
I'd like to hear her explain how
she got them and that they do.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: Hmph, it's not my fault! Servants can only carry out their Masters' orders, after all.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: My body is yours to command, so you just need to be able to move me, and I will fight…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: Maybe if you weren't so wishy-washy about each battle, combat wouldn't be such a chore!

Oops, she got upset.

Caster turns her face away, and
sticks up her tail and ears.

…But she's only so upset because
she knows herself theater her abilities
are unbalanced.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: Of course I know that. How would I win against other Servant in close range combat if I didn't?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: What do you think my class is?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: I'm an alluring, mystical, weak and good-for-nothing Caster!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: Casters are the Holy Grail War's second-string Servants. They're the first to be eliminated!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: The least you could do is show some sympathy toward me for belonging to such a terrible class!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: If I had a choice, I'd be a Saber!

Sounds like the whining of a beat dog-
or in this case, a beat fox.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: …Well, I guess there's no point in complaining.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: We're not even good against other Casters, since our fighting styles rely on illusion.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: I'm not made for close-range combat anyway. Military campaigns are more my style!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: But, you know, all the Japanese spirits are my clones.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: I like to think I'm the equivalent of eight million soldiers-or one invincible entity against humans.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: …Yeah, that's why I'm so weak against the hero types.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Has anyone ever told you about the three-way deadlock between heroes, humans and monsters?

I know what a deadlock is, but have
only heard of it happening between
snakes, frogs and slugs in fables.

Snakes eat frogs, frogs eat slugs,
and slugs eat snakes.

It's like rock-paper-scissors.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: Humans can't beat monsters. Monsters can't beat heroes. And heroes can't beat humans.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: …Oops, sorry! I got off track. Anyway, a Caster like me is just not cut out for close combat.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: But, remember. I am a late bloomer!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: The more you grow as a Master, the more maleficium I will regain!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: So, hang in there, Master.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: Meanwhile, just think of it this way. It doesn't matter how powerful an attack is if you dodge it.

So she's telling me it's out of
her hands. Not like I could replace
my Servant, even if I wanted.

I need to accept her limitations
and work harder myself to make
up the difference.

The second ones next.

Video Here.
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap095.jpg (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZeQFjxTMFA)

…I'm still not used to combat.
In fact, it may not feel like second
nature until tournament's end.

What I AM getting used to…
The person whose soothing presence
I'm taking for granted…is her.

Her strange take on things is often
a breath of fresh air.

I use this opportunity to thank
her for being herself.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap100.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen8.png: I just… It's odd to thank someone for being odd…

She's right. I guess that makes
me the weird one for taking such
pleasure in her idiosyncrasies.

I'd rather she speak what's really
on her mind than obscure the truth.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: …I see. Thank you so much, Master. But, I'm still a little embarrassed.

Caster murmurs her words.

…There's an uncharacteristic note
of melancholy to her tone.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: -Anyway, isn't it nice to relax like this?!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Your lovely Servaant would like to give you a treat. Close your eyes andopen your mouth…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap109.jpg

I wonder what Caster likes to do.
Does she have any hobbies?

Any kind of information she can
give me will shed light on her
mysterious personality.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: Oh my! you want to know my tastes? I never expected my prudish Master to be so forward!

…Actually, it might be better
to leave her a mystery.

I thought Caster was just pretending
to be bubbly, but now I realize her
energy might be animal exuberance.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Um, I like taking trips to hot springs. It's not the hot springs I like, but the trip itself.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: A romantic excursion for two!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I like cooking, too. Not the cooking itself, but the love the wife pours into a meal for her husband!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: The important part of cooking for the wife is watching her husband consume her love.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I like presents too. I would be so tickled if my Master picked out a present for me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Unless my Master gave me a cheap gift- Then I would be sad.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap121.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: I just had a happy thought! We're like newlyweds, Master!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: Because I'm so happy just to be here with you!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Aren't you happy, Master?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I know things are busy, but don't forget what I said.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Next time we have a break, I'll make you lunch! I'd love it if you got me a present, but you don't have to…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: The most important thing is that we go places together.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap129.jpg

Yeah, let's change that to Vixen and Wife. Anyway last set of options.

Video Here.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap131.jpg

Hahaha, oh crap.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Master, do you know the parable of The Grateful Crane?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: It's the one where the man can't resist the urge to open the door, even though he was asked not to.

Caster smiles as she traces symbols
in the air with her left hand.

If I remember correctly, I've seen
her use those symbols in combat to
place a curse on an opponent.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Or the story of the The Snow Woman? The one where a man lets slip a secret he shouldn't have,

The editing department slipped a the that they shouldn't have there.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Even though the Show Woman had warned the man he would die if he told anyone about her.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I've been wondering… Why do men always have to push things?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Do they want to die? Or do they want to be killed? I'll never understand how men think.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: But…but… I am a woman…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: By the way, Master what were you saying…? I missed it earlier.

…The curse patterns are a finger's
breadth from being finished. I look
at Caster and she's NOT smiling.

The words just die in my throat,
and I shake my hen in response.
Nope, I've got nothing to say.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Oh good. I protect my Master as if I are a shrine maiden, and my Master's body is a temple, but…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: When my Master compares me to that green-clad trickster, I am reminded that I, too, am a devious fox.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap147.jpg

…If I can only ask Caster one
question, then obviously I ought
to ask about her true name.

Her name is a key piece of strategic
information… and yeah, I'm really
curious to know who she was.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg; Uuugh… I know I said I'd answer anything, but…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Do you really want to know? You won't like me anymore once you hear it…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap154.jpg

Another subset of choices. C'mon Caster.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap156.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Nnngh… Don't look at me like that, Master. Your gaze is making me melt… No! I can't.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen8.png: I'm not a legitimate Legendary Soul! See, aren't you disgusted already?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen8.png: I won't tell you! I won't! My chest is all squeeze now, so this Q & A session is over!

Caster flees to the back of the
room, flailing her arms.

…Could it be more psychological
barrier than strategy that's leading
her to conceal her true name…?

Although we're only in the second
round, my trust in her is already
unshakable at this point.

…Seriously though, what in the
world makes her think that I'd be
disgusted by her true identity?

And the last one. Really.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap164.jpg

…If the thought of revealing her
true name stresses Caster out so
much, I'll stop asking.

I won't press the matter further.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: You're so understanding, Master. I promise I'll tell you my true name before you need to know.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: …But, you make me a sad fox. you're not as interested in me as I thought you were…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap170.jpg

And that's that for this week episode of Vixen and Wife. Let's return to that pesky and uninteresting War.

Female Student: Your luck won't hold out twice in a row. Good-bye, Hooters.

Male Student: If you can win this battle, then I'll have to start worrying.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap175.jpg

Female Student: You can fight without knowing, but it's so much better when you have the whole picture.

Female Student: Avoid using up your MP, so that you don't shortchange yourself for when you really need it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap192.jpg

…Overkilling is fun, okay?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap193.jpg

Male Student: Father Kotomine supposedly came up with the recipe. I heard he can put away five servings…

Male Student: I can't wait to test my mettle, and my tolerance for spice… I must somehow survive!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap196.jpg

Male Student: Getting all of your preparation done early will let you focus on more important things.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap198.jpg

Female Student: you should know by now- No pain, no gain!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap200.jpg

Female Student: Virtual or not, this is the Holy Grail War. And it's called a war for a very good reason.

Female Student: Here, losing just doesn't mean a hit to your pride, but the end of your very existence.

Female Student: Hopefully you and I will be able to speak again, Hooters. Good luck with your battle tomorrow.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%206/snap204.jpg

Male Student: …If I go down, promise me that you'll keep my honey company, okay? I'm serious about this.

And so we enter the Arena and leave after a level up. Lvl 14.

I turn toward the voice coming
from behind me.

He wears the clothes of a priest
which in the end only makes his
snide tongue more jarring.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: Come to the first floor when ready. You can do something trifling like stop by the commissary if needed.

Apparently finished, he opens the
door and lets himself out.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%207/snap006.jpg

So we go to the love nest and we guess Archer's iden… pfft is Robin Hood we already know that. The Arrow legend gave him away.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%207/snap007.jpg

Dan Blackmore

Our opponent this time is a
veteran soldier

Since I could never hope to make up
decades of experience in a week,
he's clearly got the advantage.

I'm the inferior Master, but when
it comes to Servants…
His Servant's class is…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%207/snap012.jpg

That day in the Arena, the Servant
fired a poison arrow at me.

That kind of precise marksmanship
was enough to tell me the enemy's
class is Archer.

It's also clear that said shot
severed some kind of bond between
Master and Servant.

Dan forbid his Servant to use his
bow to fire poison arrows. That bow
is his Noble Phantasm, called…

The name of the Noble Phantasm
that Dan forbid his Servant from
using was…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%207/snap018.jpg

>Fragant Bow.

…No, that's not right.

I mean, that sound like something
they'd have at a spa.
Think, think…

>Yew Bow

The name of the Servant's unerring
bow is the Yew Bow.

After Archer wielded it in the prep
period, Dan utilized a Command Seal
to disable its further use.

Telling him to fight fairly.

Fighting face-to-face, with honor
and pride.

Seeing as how Archer fought so
differently in life, of course he
doesn't get his Master's values.

Seeing as how Archer fought so
differently in life, of course he
doesn't get his Master's values.

The girl who helped me deduce that
was the sky-gazing beauty from the
third floor, Rani.

With the remains of the Archer's
arrow, she showed me the forest
he held dear.

The name of that forest was-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%207/snap033.jpg

Even with his true name, and taking
into account the discord between
Master and Servant, can I win?

Our Servants are pretty evenly
matched, so if I can step up my
game as a Master…

Chappel.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Enter the Coliseum

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: The way to the Coliseum is now open, young Master.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: I wish you the best of luck and hope that you will return. Remember: It's kill or be killed.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: It must be too much effort for the grizzled old thing to talk! But I'm bored. Hey Servant, say something.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: Huh? What's the point of talking to someone who's about to jump into their grave?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%207/snap055.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: The guy doesn't even fart without a purpose. I've given up trying to make small talk with him.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: Hey, enemy Master. Why don't YOU try talking to Grumplestiltskin over here?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: He's just a mean-spirited little underling who totally does not deserve to loos so hot!

…Really Caster, really? I mean he's hot but there's a time and place for it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: You call yourself a Legendary Soul? Why don't you switch positions with your Master?!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: I'll let you in on a little secret- not all of us Legendary Souls were noble in life.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: That would be boring. Oh, and on that note, careful you don't get nailed from behind AGAIN.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg:… Hmph. You're plundering our enemies for entertainment right before the battle.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Knight.jpg…Yes, that is excessive

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: Ding! Correct! If you don't like it, then go put on a helmet to match that armor and drown out the sound.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: But, I WANT to talk to our enemies. Why don't you listen in? Learn what kids these days are into.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: Cuz if you got any more ancient, they'd have to put you in a museum.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: haha! You have no idea how to have fun! With all this killing, killing, killing, a guy's gotta unwind.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: A bowstring that's wound too tight snaps. Isn't that right?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: I have to be nimble on my feet-chivalry and ideology are all my stiff and would just slow me down.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%207/snap094.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Green.jpg: Argh, that's my Master for you. He can't keep his chivalry in his pants even with a kid like you around.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%207/snap097.jpg

And the elevator gets to the bottom.

And so we enter the Second Elimination Battle.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0O6dcoxLRs

And we win.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: The worst part about being young is having old people lecture you!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Who needs to hear lectures about motives or being prepared?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: The only person who gets to decide about having a motive is you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Maybe you have a noble cause and maybe you don't. Actually, it is more freeing to have none at all!

Although Caster may not like it,
I think it's a good idea to have
goals and be prepared.

To crush another person's motive,
dreams and life is what it means
to take part in this war.

To kill those who don't want to
be killed.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Hey Master, you listed to what that old guy had to say.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I have no idea what he was saying. Did you learn anything?

Did I learn anything from my fight with Dan?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/Day%207/snap112.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I knew it! I knew that's what you would say, Master.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: You and I think alike, Master. We won't have any trouble with the next battle at this rate!

The next battle… Right, there's
a third round, and then a fourth,
and so on. I'm still kind of lost.

But if that's the path before me,
then I owe it to the lives lost so
far to keep fighting.

Right or wrong, that's one way to
think about things.

Deja vü

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/After/snap007.jpg

I'm flung backwards, as if by an
invisible hand.

There's a wall behind-
I'm going to crash…!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/After/snap010.jpg

That's no wall.

Where am I…?

instead of colliding with a wall,
I suddenly find myself in unfamiliar
surroundings.

My head's spinning trying to keep
up, but it seems like I was somehow
teleported elsewhere.

Wait, I'm getting deja vu. This is
the Coliseum that was used twice-

The details are different, but the
framework is the same.

If this really is the Coliseum,
there must be an enemy nearby.

My thoughts freeze and my breath
hitches when I realize this.

When I look around, I see a sinister
man with piercing eyes who's wearing
clothing that looks aflame.

I go numb with fear. He intends to
kill me, that much is unmistakable.

Without a sound, the black-clad
teacher appears just a few meters
in front of me.

Sinister eyes from under a mop of
black hair direct a piercing gaze
my way.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: Either way, you managed to survive the Demon's Fist.

The man's aura changes.

It sharpens, honing into a point
as if it were a wicked blade. One
directed straight at me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: It's ideal to dispatch you here.

He's looking at my neck.

A bead of sweat drips off my chin.
He takes a step toward me-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/After/snap044.jpg

The girl in red clothes appeared
put of a classroom where none
should have been.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/After/snap046.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: My reputation precedes me. I see the intelligence network of the Harway Foundation has been busy.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Although I'm pretty hard to miss.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: You tell me, Julius Berkisk Harway. Since you're from the foundation's counter-terrorism unit.

Kuzuki answers to the name of
Julius and smiles thinly.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/After/snap051.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: How absurd. They've got nothing to do with this. In fact, why haven't you killed them yet?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: -I'll be laughing when you end up stabbed in the back, terrorist.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/After/snap055.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/After/snap056.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: …I shall remember this.

His predatory pupils still trained
on me, the man disappears into
the wall as if melting away.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/After/snap059.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: With an unscrupulous enemy like that, I better be on my guard at all times in the school.

The girl starts talking to herself
after the man has faded away.
Then she turns toward me.

She has a cold look in her eyes…
not all that different from the
look in that Julius's eyes.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/After/snap063.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: You're my enemy, too. It's not like I care if you died now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: …I'm impressed you made it past the second round. I didn't think you had it in you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%202/After/snap066.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: -Er, what am I saying? Later, then.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Be careful not to lose the life that just got saved for you in the third round!

The girl smiles briefly before
rushing off.

Tsundereism... eer okay.

Next up: When I start to use blue and red.

...wow, getting to see that one was definitely interesting. And Julius+Assassin...hadn't seen much of them before.
But it looks like Rin being Tsundere never stops. XD

The third.


http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap071.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap072.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap073.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap074.jpg

Guess we know where to go.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap076.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap077.jpg

Sounds familiar.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap078.jpg

Oh.

My next opponent is dramatically
younger than the one before. She
can't be more than ten years old.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap080.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: Or maybe you didn't notice me. After all, Alice was just staring at you…

…welp.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: Alice thinks you and I can be friends, lady. Finally Alice will have a friend of her own.

…Double welp.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder2.jpg: That's why when you left, lady, I was so sad and lonely.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: But… when I came to his place, I was lucky enough to meet her

…I have read enough mangas about Yanderes to know where this is going.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder2.jpg: She is my only friend. I finally found a friend in her

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: That's why you aren't needed anymore. As long as she has me, nothing else matters.

…hahaha I hate being right.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: But you are my next playmate, so I guess I'll have to play with you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap088.jpg

She's like a doll only seen in a
dream. I don't feel threatened
like I did with Dan Blackmore.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap091.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: Don't let her looks fool you. She's already killed two Masters so DO NOT let your guard down.

That's right. Only the strong
survive here. It's possible that
she's much stronger than Dan was.

But the question remains:
Can I fight without holding back.

My opponents up until now had an
aura of power. It was easy to
see them as worthy foes.

…But things are different now.
Can I do to this little girl
what I did to the others?

I know that if I don't, I'm as
good as dead, but still…

Evening.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap098.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap099.jpg

Regardless of who my opponent is,
time in the SE.RA.PH passes at the
same measured pace for all.

The message I received informs me
I'll be erased if I fail to find my
Triggers and gather info on my foe.

I shake off the effects of the girl's
stare on my stage of mind and try
to focus on gathering information.

I should talk to a few people first,
but those acquaintances I've made
are probably of dubious reliability,.

Well third week. Time to see who got deleted.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap105.jpg

Male Student: I think I'm better prepared for the possibility that we might get paired now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap107.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap108.jpg

G.I. Joe!

Male Student: Your attacks will be meaningless if your enemy sees them coming.

Male Student: I realized this during the second round.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap111.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: A pity, that. The fact that this one hot guy I had my eye on got eliminated so quickly makes me a sad vixen.

Caster ladies and gentleman.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: And the less said about those who are still around, the better. As the old saying goes, "Ill weeds grow apace."

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: Well, no matter whom they may be, they're no match for us!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: There is no way that we can possibly lose to Masters and Servants whose relationships aren't based on love!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: Master, I will protect you with my awesome powers of herone-ism! Bet on it!

Herone-ism. Isn't that kind of useless on this kind of games? Oh wait Fate/ never mind.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap117.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: *Smugface*

Female Student: I might have to re-categorize you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap119.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: *Smugface*

Male Student: I guess I'll have to consider you a serious threat now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap121.jpg

Female Student: On top of everything else, turns out she's shy. She ran away when I tried to talk to her.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap123.jpg

Male Student: I mean, sure, you can muscle your way to victory, but why risk it?

Male Student: Our lives depend on these fights, so don't you think we should all adopt the surefire approach?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap126.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap127.jpg

Female Student: But do not become complacent, lest you be denied glory when next you fight.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap129.jpg

Female Student: May the Holy Grail continue to illuminate your path.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap131.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: I know what you mean.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap132.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: Don't let up now. The next fight has already begun. you should head to the Arena immediately.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap134.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: The stars must be whispering their blessing to you.

Well to Rin.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap136.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Lucky or not, you've managed to keep winning. I guess I'll have to start taking you seriously.

…Even after that backhanded
compliment, Rin continues talking,
albeit in a much friendlier tone.

I'm not sure if it's because she
finally sees me as a worthy
adversary, but she seems… nice.

It's like her thought patterns
are infinitely different from
normal girls.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Is that little girl you next opponent? You keep getting the problematic Masters, don't you?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap142.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap143.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Yeah, but having Matou, Blackmore, and now this Alice creature all in a row…?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Honestly, your luck well and truly…sucks.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: As this is the third round, I hope you've learned by now not to judge your enemy by their appearance.

I don't plan on letting my guard
down now. Both Dan and Shinji
were far more capable than me.

-And now my current opponent.
I didn't need Rin to tell me how
difficult this fright will be.

When the time comes, will I be
able to kill this little girl?

Other option.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap150.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap151.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: If the time ever comes where we have to fight, don't expect me to hold back.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: As this is the third round, I hope you've learned by now not to judge your enemy by their appearance.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap154.jpg

Male Student: That dull ache of hunger in your belly lets you know you're alive!

Male Student: That's why I let gluttony be my guide. Because that's what it means to eb human.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap157.jpg

Male Student: The third round awaits, as do the Masters strong enough to survive the preceding round.

Male Student: Be sure to buy everything you'll think you'll need for the trials coming in the week ahead.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap160.jpg

Female Student: It might only be sentimentality on my part, but by doing so it'll allow me to keep moving forward.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap162.jpg

…Ohgodohgodohgodohgod…

The little girl in front of me is
supposed to be my enemy, but her
innocent smile holds no malice.

Though I can't shake the feeling
that her naivete is a ruse, I find
myself lowering my defenses.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap165.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap166.jpg

Options? What options?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder3.jpg: Yay! I knew that you'd play with me!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder3.jpg: She is me, and I am her! We are ourselves!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder3.jpg: Let's start now! Tag, you're it! Alice will be waiting for you in the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder3.jpg: Hurry up and come get me!

I said I'd play with her, so I
should probably go to the Arena
and chase her down.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap172.jpg

It seems like Caster really wants
to play. If we can learn more
about Alice, I'll play along, too.

Whatever the case, we should go
chase down Alice.

Before that TAIGA!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap175.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Yes ma'am.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Very good. I will now brief you on your upcoming mission.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: I have received word that a student has smuggled an illicit magazine onto school grounds.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: your responsibility is to track down the miscreant and take possession of said magazine.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: This mission will be valid for three days. On the fourth day, I expect a full report. Dismissed!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap181.jpg

Male Student: I guess fighting can make you nauseous, huh? *Gulp* I don't feel so good…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap183.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: Here you go, Hooters! Healing supplies. I wish you the best of luck this week, too.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap185.jpg

Master's mp recovery item get! This is a rare item so we are never using it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap186.jpg

Male Student: Well, I'll do it, but only under one condition.

Male Student: My Servant wants a large cauldron. Bring me one and I guess I'll part with my beloved comic book.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap189.jpg

Female Student: I was hoping to challenge him with my archery someday.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap191.jpg

Female Student: It's obvious that only the strongest Masters have made it this far…

Female Student: Which makes you reasonably strong…I guess?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap194.jpg

Raise your hand if you saw this coming.

Female Student: It's not like I wanted to, you know? It was either him or me, and I din't want to die.

Female Student: So, who's the next to die? I can kill anyone now…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap197.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap198.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: She's close, Master. We'll pounce on her and ravish her bones… Uh, not the way you're thinking!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap200.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: You're "It", lady. If you can catch Alice, you win, lady!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: All right, ready… Go!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap203.jpg

Caster appears ready to dash off at
any moment, In any case, I'll follow
her nose (for it always knows) and
chase after Alice.

After some crawling.

-There she is.

Those white frills could only belong
to Alice.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap210.jpg

Escapes again. And we find her again.

There she is!
-Way, way over there!

I need to make a serious effort to
chase her down or she'll get away.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap214.jpg

And she leaves again.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap215.jpg

And we find her again.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap216.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: Hey, lady… Do you wanna hear Alice's story?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Alice, who lived in a country far, far away from here…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap219.jpg

…Two?! ohgodohgodohgodohgod…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: The sky got really red and then my house got really black. Then I woke up in a white room.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: Nothing ever changed. I had no friends. I had no Mommy or Daddy.

There's… another Alice…?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap223.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: But something happened that hurt so much that I couldn't tough it out. Then I woke up here.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: But, it's okay. It's really fun here.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: There are bunches of nice people.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap227.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap228.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap230.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: I'm not very good at sewing, but I'm sure I can, at the very least, stitch them together.



http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap232.jpg



http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: Of course it'd be okay.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: What a relief. I didn't want to make Mommy mad again.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: Then, let's playreally hard with the lady! Cuz she is our brand new friend.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: This Master isn't like the two before. We can touch this Master and they even have warm blood.

…Ohcrapcrapcrapcrap…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap237.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: Yeah! That's a good idea.

With that, Alice raises her hand.

And then-

The Arena floor, the walls, the air-
it all shakes under the influence
of a huge influx of power.

My mind is screaming warnings.
Run.
Run!
RUN!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap243.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: Play with him, lady.

I should-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap279.jpg

Whatever's happening, I'm just
going to go with the flow.

The girls disappear and we are left to fight. We fight and Caster gets hit. It only does 6000 of damage. Not screenshoted because god damn it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap281.jpg

I don't have what I need to beat
it… With power that overwhelming,
I must be facing a…Berserker?

I only have moments to process my
mistake before my consciousness
melts away into darkness-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap284.jpg

Let's not be hasty this time.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap246.jpg

This is no joke.

No way could I emerge from a fight
with that thing in one piece.

For now, the wisest course of
action is retreat.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap250.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Retreat when it's time to retreat! Your ability to grasp the obvious is incredible, Master.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: No need to worry about me! Running from danger is what foxes do best!

Our course of action is decided.

I put all of my efforts into
escaping with my Servant.

Then, I hear Alice's voice calling

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: Aww, boring… Well, he'll be here until the magic we gave him runs out, so come to play again!

This is a disaster.
The cipher key is on the other
side of that monster.

I won't be able to acquire the
cipher key unless I take care of
that thing…

My berthing becomes hurried and
labored as the effort of our
escape catches up with me.

Not helping matters is my
continuing confusion as to what
just happened in the Arena.

Berserker- A class that exchanges a
Legendary Soul's sanity and original
personality for unbridled power.

If that monster is a BErserker-class
Servant, going near it without a
plan would be dangerous.

But, if that's the case…

Why was there a black Alice next
to Alice? Are they twins?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Maybe this particular Holy Grail War allows that…. Let's investigate it later, Master!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap273.jpg

Matrix Check.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/snap274.jpg

Curious. If we try to return to where Berserker? is.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Let's go back to campus and devise a plan of attack.

And we leave.

A person in the distance…?

It must be my imagination. No…
There's actually someone there.

It's a man all in white. He walks
toward me slowly, flickering as if
he's not all there.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap006.jpg

The strange man disappears before arriving in front of us.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap007.jpg

The calm voice jerks me back out
of the trance and back to reality.

Leo is standing next to me.

Did he see the apparition, too?
If it was an apparition.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: In that way, the SE.RA.PH resembles the primordial sea from which unicellular organism sprung.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Just as those bacteria grew into humans, so, too, do the conditions of SE.RA.PH allow for evolution.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: That pseudo lifeform must have been generated from information evolving in the SE.RA.PH.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: It's merely an echo of someone who once lived. It's harmless data, don't worry about it.

Evening.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap016.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Also, I don't want to be bossy, but you really should find out more about that Berserker.

That's a good idea. I should find out if those
girls are twins or not I have no
idea how our battle will unfold.

First of all, should I hunt down
Alice, or should I find someone
who might know more about her?

For the time being, I think I'll
take Caster's advice and be a
bit more cautious that usual.

So today is a horrible day. But first student talk.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap022.jpg

Male Student: Frolicking with your opponent is pretty freaking inappropriate.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap024.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap025.jpg

Male Student: This is a hacker's paradise.

Visiting Caster.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap027.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: And by annoying little bugs, I mean those two trollops that have been eye-humping you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap029.jpg

…So tag yesterday, today hide 'n' seek.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder3.jpg: All right, Alice will go and hide and you have to come and find me!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap031.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: *Chuckle* Such a devious plan is beyond the ken of such a little girl.

For all of the dire warnings,
Caster seems really…enthusiastic
about this, but I can see why.

Hide and Seek, huh? She'll be
hiding somewhere on campus.
I'd better go look on her.

Well let's keep on searching.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap035.jpg

Male Student: You're either brave or stupid.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap037.jpg

Male Student: Actually, feel free to tell me all about yourself. The favor won't be returned however.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap039.jpg

Female Student: The blue ones have regular items, red ones have rare items, and green ones contain cipher keys.

Female Student: While not really earth-shattering information, it is something to keep in mind.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap042.jpg

Female Student: Should you need to revisit a previous action, this data might be prove to be invaluable.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap044.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg; No… It is not my place to judge. Results are all that matter.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: You're always training, even at school, Hooters McBoobs.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Monsters?

Cultural clash! As you may or may not know, tag in Japan requires an Oni instead of an "it".

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Are you being pursued by a dreadful Servant like a dullahan or Scylla?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: If you injure another Master on campus, a penalty will be imposed.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Though it appears some Masters are willing to do very audacious things.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap055.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Is there anything in this world that words cannot give shape to? There are words for most things.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Ah, I understand. What you wish to say cannot be spoken without fear of great misunderstanding.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg: My apologies, but I still don't understand. My professor would know, but I do not.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I still require training. You, on the other hand, are already wise, Hooters McBoobs.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap064.jpg

Female Student: He cut our opponent in half in the blink of an eye! And not only is he hot, his aura is just… WOW!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap066.jpg

Females Student: "Innocence" and "purity"- I just saw a child who fits those words. Could she be another Master?

Male Student: My Servant eats a lot. It seems the amount in a normal pot isn't enough to fill them up.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap075.jpg

Female Student: You-know-who is always causing a ruckus in the school building.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap077.jpg

Male Student: The techniques bestowed by these items can temporally increase some of your Servant's stats.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap079.jpg

Female Student: But seriously, I question his terse, and predilections, for using an avatar like that!

Female Student: I mean, what a creepy little troll… Just the sight of him disgusts me.

At front of the Arena is Alice. Well that was easy.

Give me something nice…
What should I ask for…?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap088.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: *Giggle* She's me, just as I'm her. But who is that over there?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: I'm sure you'll eventually figure it out. So, is there anything else?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Tell your "friend" to move.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: My "friend"… Oh, you'll have to ask…her…about that…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: Oh, how about a treasure hunt? If you want my friend to move, find the Vorpal Blade!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap091.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: A blade of legend that no one has ere seen. How will you find it? CAN you find it? *Giggle*

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: Well, good luck! Bye-bye.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Master, this is nice. It's rare that we get a chance to just chat about…us…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: But we should find that Vorpal Blade the girl mentioned before more…important…matters.

Well let's go and… hey Rin.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Huh… looks like you've forgotten we're in the middle of a war here.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: With your guard so down, the enemy will slice your head clean off.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap100.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Vorpal Blade? I think… that's a weapon that has an effect on types of monstrosities…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: What about it? It's limited in its application, so I doubt it will be of much help.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Well, if you do need it, you will have to find an alchemist. Sorry I can't transmute such a thing.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: If I were you, I'd find a master alchemist and discuss the matter with them.

…An Alchemist?

At least I have a lead. I'll ask
some of the other Masters.

…Well I just need to find an Alchemist. Should be easy.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap111.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: But I heard that a place know as the Atlas Institution specialized in alchemy and astrology.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: The Master further down the hall is from the Atlas Institution. You should speak with her.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap114.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap115.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: -Yes. I have a somewhat through knowledge of the skills required in alchemy.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Though, to be accurate, it is my professor who is the alchemist and I the disciple. What of it?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: What is a "Vorpal Blade"?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg: My professor spoke of the Vorpal Blade. It's Formal Wear effective only against particular targets.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg: With the right materials, like Malachite, I could use alchemy to affect the Arena. But-

Right. Rani may be friendly to me,
but she's also a Master I will
someday face.

Even if I did acquire a Malachite,
and Rani can transmute it, she has
no reason to help me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: No, it is all right. I have seen that your star is different from the other Masters'.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: It is possible you are the one my professor spoke of…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: If you bring me Malachite, I will do my best to transmute it into a Vorpal Blade.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I felt like I saw Malachite somewhere in here.

The one her professor spoke of?
I don't get it, but at least she
sounds willing to cooperate.

I'll go search for Malachite
before she changer her mind.

…Wait don't tell me… no, they couldn't… could they? Anyway to search for Malachite.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap129.jpg

Rin Tousaka says something weird
when I tell her I need Malachite
to transmute a Vorpal Blade.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Malachite, I see. It's not like I don't have any, but…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap132.jpg

Well it is greedy Tousaka-san after all.

Positive I'll be rejected, I ask
her anyway.

Instead of outright rejecting my
request, she smiles at me. It's
not a good smile.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch2.jpg: For free? Do I look like a charity organization to you?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch2.jpg: Don't forget that we're enemies. So you can have it…provided you give me something in return.

I didn't think she'd outright give
it to me…but I'm anxious about
what her conditions are.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Let's see… In exchange for the Malachite, you must give me a gem of equal value.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: How about…a large Ruby? I want something along the lines of that.

A Ruby… Needless to say, I don't
have one in my pocket or anything,

Rin notices my response, and she
continues in an upbeat tone.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: A bit earlier, I hacked into the commisary's database in order to get some jewels.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: I mean, they're there but they're surprisingly pricey.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap144.jpg

I think her Servant is making fun
of her. She gets a sour face after
that exchange.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: W-Well, at least now you know the commissary has a large Ruby.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: how you use that knowledge is up to you.

I feel like I'm getting the short
end of this deal…but what else
can I do?

I better go to the commissary…

Fetch Quest.

…*sigh* Let`s just…just do this… ugh.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap152.jpg

Sales Clerk: What, you want yo buy it? That will be 5,000,000PPT! My aren't we loaded?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap154.jpg

The price makes my wallet scream
out in agony, but I really need
a Vorpal Blade.

As I stared at the price with
disgust, the store clerk said
something out of the blue.

Sales Clerk: So, why don't we make a deal?

Sales Clerk: Us staff members would kill for one of the lunches made by Sakura, the school nurse.

Sales Clerk: Unfortunately for us, those lunches are only for Masters like yourself.

Sales Clerk: I'd love to be able to try one, just once… Hehehe, like I'd ever get the chance.

A… lunch?!
Seriously?
I mean, is anything homemade
worth that much?

…Not that I care. No point in
delaying. I'd better go to the
nurse's office and finish this.

So we go.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap163.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: I have a request.

I must look more serious than I
realized, because Sakura Matou
stares at me silently.

-Can you make me a lunch?

The words are clumsy, If I do say say
so myself, but Sakura Matou offers
a sweet smile.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: Of curse. The truth is, I've been practicing during the preceding rounds, hoping to hand them out.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: I'm afraid I'm not that good at making them yet…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap170.jpg

I'm taken with the urge to devour
the whole gorgeous multi-tiered
affair on the spot.

Firmly regaining self control,
I give my thanks to Sakura Matou.

All right, off to the commissary.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap174.jpg

Sales Clerk: I can't believe you actually got this for me. Color me impressed.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap176.jpg

Sales Clerk: I am truly grateful for this. As for my side of the bargain? Here is the item you wanted.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap178.jpg

Was that really a fair trade?
…Like I care. Now that I have
the Ruby, it's time to push on.

If I give this to Rin Tousaka,
I should get some Malachite
in return. In theory, anyway…

Gogogogogogo

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap181.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap182.jpg

I hand Rin Tousaka the Ruby I got
at the commissary.

From her dumbfounded expression,
it's clear she meant the deal as a
joke. She gives me the Malachite.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: I never thought you'd get it, but a deal's a deal.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: There's not many of this, so use it carefully.

Thank goodness. Now, maybe I can
get Rani to transmute this for me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg: …

After the malachite burst open and
dissipates, Rani opens her eyes.

A sword appears in her hands.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: This is the Vorpal Blade. Sadly I could not create one that would last beyond use use.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Please use it carefully. It cannot be transmuted twice.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap196.jpg

Thanks goodness. Now I have a chance
against that Berserker.

I'll go to the Arena after this.

So we go. At last.

As the enemy Servant writhes in
anguish, his aura shrinks rapidly.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap204.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: The enemy is weak! Let's finish it!

And we do. He is not that hard. He is finished in one turn actually. Totally not suspicious.

The Servant wails as it disappears.
We've repelled it!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap207.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: *Giggle* Really I wonder how.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: You win the reasure hunt, lady.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: 'Kay, what're we gonna play next?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: We gotta go think about it again. All right, bye-bye, lady.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap212.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Well, whatever the case, we can get the first cipher key now, my dear Master!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap214.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%202/snap215.jpg

And we leave.

Yeah this one and the one on week 6 are the worst of the bunch. The hunting ones (spoilers they use it again) are also kind of meh.

Losing Mind

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap001.jpg

This entire situation is
different in every way from what
I faced with Shinji and Dan.

I have no idea what to make of
the whole situation.

First of all, there are two
Alices… Could a pair of twins
act as Masters in tandem?

And what exactly is that Servant
of theirs? I couldn't find any
information about it at all…

Alice's ability as a Master is
extraordinary. And I'm sure that
her Servant will show up again.

Until I get to the bottom of all
of these mysteries, I have no
chance of winning.

It'd be nice if I could talk
about this with someone…

Well before that, Caster has a yellow box so let's talk.

Video Here.
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap010.jpg (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_dGwxPyxNI)

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap011.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Sugar, salt, vinegar…what else could there possibly be?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Celery and soup stock? Or is that war and peace? Gah! Why are there so many ingredients?!

It sounds like Caster is reading a
recipe book she borrowed form
the library.

Maybe she realized that unrestrained
creativity doesn't work in cooking and
that there's a right way to do things.

…It seems that there are times when she
actually forgets that we're in the middle
of a war, but that's a part of what makes
this place so relaxing.

And by the way, the last two
ingredients are soy sauce and miso.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Wha-? I never expected you to know anything about cooking, Master! Did you get yout memories back?

Unfortunately, no. While my past is
still a mystery to me, my knowledge
of general topics is still intact.

My guess is that the memories that make up
one's identity and the knowledge needed to
function in daily life are two separate things.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: …Is that so? I'm sorry to hear that. I was hoping to learn more about you, my dear Master.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: But if you can't remember anything just yet, then I guess I will have to wait until you can!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: So master, leave the past where it is and let us focus on our sure to be glorious future!

Does she really feel that way, or is she just trying to
make me feel better? Either way, her smile is enough
to clear away my negative thoughts.

While I wish she was more imposing in
battle, for an amnesiac Master like me
Caster may be the perfect Servant.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: Eh? It's not like I'm totally weak and powerless. It's just that there are…reasons…why I'm not at my best.

…There is absolutely nothing I can
say in response.

The ability to use her full power is
severely hampered by my inexperience
as a magus.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen7.png: It's not all your fault! My fundamental ability to channel… well, enough of that for now!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen7.png: Let's talk about the future. So, what are you going to wish for once you win the Holy Grail?

Although it came out of the blue, her question
did bring up a very good point. What will I do if
I somehow manage to survive all of this?

The legendary object with the power
to grant any wish.
Even if that's true-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap033.jpg

…That's right.

Without memories of my past, I don't think know what
kind of person I really am. Can I even be trusted
with something as valuable as a wish?

Or, more to the point, do I even have
any hopes or dreams worthy of having
come true like the other Masters?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap039.jpg

Leo and Dan Blackmore.
And Rin Tousaka as well.

All of them mysterious magi who have
knowingly entered the SE.RA.PH

Unlike those who've waited for countless years
for this opportunity, my will to fight is far weaker
than those who I will have to face in battle.

It is for that reason alone that no
matter what,

I cannot bring myself to state
something nonsensical like:

"I have a wish I need to come true."

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Is that so…? Could it be you lost the ability to feel certain emotions along with your memories?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Or perhaps you had no burning passions or anger in the first place?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Rage, indignation, or an overwhelming passion for a cause. Even if your desire is self-serving,

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Strong emotions of any kind normally are the basis of one wanting to wish for change.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: If you want my opinion, I think you're fine just the way you are.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: For some, just knowing that their wish could possibly be granted is enough to consume them.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I don't want that to ever happen to you, Master-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap053.jpg

Wait. Did she just say she wanted to
be one to bleed me dry of my money,
time and-?!

-Anyway…

While I don't have anything to wish
for, I wonder if Caster has any
wishes of her own.

In exchange for her help, I can only
assume that she'll want to use the
Holy Grail as well.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap058.jpg

Caster blinks as though pole-axed. She
seems at a total loss for words. Her
ears and tail ago stiff in shock.

….Judging by her response, or lack
thereof, Caster must not have any
wishes of her own.

She is a Legendary Soul, after all.
Most, if not all, of her dreams must
have already come true.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: No, Master. I do have a wish; the same one I've always had.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: How should I put this? …I just want someone to love. I want to be able to fully devour myself to someone.

Caster quietly confesses her wish.
The sincerity in her tone is
impossible to ignore.

…If there ever was a paragon to the
virtues of purity and selflessness,
there she stands before me.

Her words are proof enough of that.

It doesn't matter what rewards await
the winner of the Holt Grail War, or
what our contract requires her to do,

she is helping me try to win this
war for no other reason than she
wants to.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap069.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: There is only one thing I'd wish for.
I just want to be the happiest and best-est wife in the world, Master!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap073.jpg

Enough of that.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap074.jpg

Female Student: She's your opponent! She's a kid, but she'll kill you once she has the chance!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap076.jpg

Female Student: It's like no style I've heard of.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap078.jpg

Male Student: It's certainly news to me that a spirit hacker could be capable of such a feat.

Male Student: Maybe she's insanely talented… or maybe there's something else at work here. You should be careful.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap081.jpg

Female Student: this really comes in handy when you want to survey the surroundings for enemies.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap083.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: TO increase your odds of winning, you should devote yourself to training in the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: Have you obtained your cipher keys? you'll get a bit of combat experience looking for them.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap088.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: …Even if a pair of twins entered the Holy Grail War…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: The system does not allow allied fights in the Arena.

What if the two of them combined
are actually one Master?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: …Then they would not actually be two.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I can't sense any vitality in that child.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I can't sense any of the electrical fluctuations presents in the living things in the Holy Grail War.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: What that ultimately means, I do not know…

Interesting.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap096.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: …I wonder how that'll work. A basic tenet of the war is that all fights are one on one.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Even if Masters form alliances while on campus, all ties get cut once they're inside of the Arena.

If that's the case, is it
possible that a Master managed
to summon multiple Servants'

The Alice in black and that thing:
it was inferred that both of them
were Alice's Servants…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Nope, not remotely possible. Every Servant has a direct connection to their Master's ID.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: To put it in simple terms, the system prohibits Masters from having more than one Servant.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: She must be either be splitting herself using a spell or one of them is an Effigy…or something.

That's interesting. So if somehow someone was able to place an ID on a Servant file, they would get that Servant. And if that someone was able to place it on another Servant the Moon Cell would not allowed since it's forbidden for one ID to have two Servants. But if your file had multiple IDs… *Scribbles to interesting ideas for fics*

…okay another Yandere. Also her servant is totally Diarmud.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap121.jpg

Male Student: Doesn't all of that running make you sick? Like, your legs tune to rubber and whatnot?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap124.jpg

Male Student: You know, I wonder here she is in the real word.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap126.jpg

Male Student: If your Servant is on the verge of death, you can use the crystal to escape the Arena.

Male Student: When exploring the Arena, having a return crystal is almost a requirement.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap130.jpg

Female Student: Do you have the will to compete against that little girl?

Okay let's get this over with.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: You won't be able to remember anybody's names. You'll see in a minute, lady.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: Nuh-uh. It goes like this: first you forget your name and then you forget who you are and then-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: The end! And you won't have to be a Master anymore!

…Loving hell.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: Isn't it fun?!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap146.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: Are you ready? Ready, set, go!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: It's gonna be lame to chase after them, but the'll take down the reality marble once captured.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: We should be able to corner them in a dead end, Master! Let's teach those naughty kids a lesson!

Let's talk: On ???'s Reality Marble:
It acts like Archer's poisonous field at a faster rate. We also have to pursue Alice and Alice and they attack us. If you are at a good distance, your Servant should block it. You can also attack with X (if exorcist blade is equipped) to slow them down. Once near them they'll teleport but you'll be free of their attack for a couple of seconds.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap151.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: you can't remember your name, can you lady?

-!

My name.

When I try to retrieve information
from my memory, it's like slipping
against smooth stone.

Do I know the names of these girls?
Do I know my own name? Wait, did
I ever have a name to begin with.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap160.jpg

Ohcrapcrapcrapcrap

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: M-Master! Don't tell me you don't remember my name, either!

Caster's name…?
She's right, I can't remember it-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Oops, I haven't told it to you yet. *Giggle* I'm sorry.

Not really the best time.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: you gotta catch me, or your body will go bye-bye next!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: *Giggle* Catch me if you can, lady!

They teleport away.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: No way am I letting them get away! Let's catch those brats, Master!

So we continue our pursue.

The girls have stopped.

It looks like it's another dead-end.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Hehehe… Here comes the bid, bad fox, cornering her prey-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: Lady, why are you being so scary? Are you mad at me…?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: Why are you mad? Uh-oh, is it cuz your body's going bye-bye?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap173.jpg

!!!!!!!!!!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Noooooo! My Master's body! It can't disappear before I have a taste of it!

NOT THE TIME!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: I'm scared! Alice, why are they so mad…?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: I dunno, Alice. We were only playing.

They teleport away.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Argh, they're just so offing agile! I'm going to capture them next time!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: It's not safe, Alice. We'd better go away.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: *Sob*… I'm sorry…lady…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Rargh, I can't believe I let them get away… Let's go home, Master. It's not safe here.

I know I gotta leave! Jeez, you
don't have to tell me that, whoever
you are.

…?
Whazzat on the ground?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 3/snap185.jpg

Dunno, I'll pick it up and look
at it later. Cuz I gotta get back
to the s-s-school building now.

We are kicked out the Arena automatically.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: But, Little Miss Dropsy left behind something in the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Let's investigate that tomorrow.

Next Up: Francisco Xavier.

Decide to give every week its colo(u)r on the first post. Also there may or may not be a hiatus thanks to the fanfic contest. Just a heads up.

My Name

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap001.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: So what's on that piece of paper, Master? is it a hint about how to work around the reality marble.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap005.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: "What is your name?" Oh yeah, my name is…oopsy! I almost let my name slip out!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Hey… So that's what they're after?!

What's the point of the question?
But to ask my name in a reality
marble that induced amnesia-

Could this be a way to defeat the
barrier? If so, how do you keep
your memories once inside?

I really should try to answer
the question while in the marble,
but how will I recall my name?

Maybe I should ask someone's
advice about this…

So let's investigate.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap012.jpg

Male Student: It's inevitable, even if I wish it weren't. When the time comes, I won't go easy on tou, okay?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap014.jpg

Male Student: Hahaha, thanks. Great minds think alike.

Male Student: We're bros…! Er, no, more like enemies of a like mind.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap017.jpg

Male Student: Do you know what you're asking? In asking for kindness, you're being cruel.

Male Student: Aaagh… That makes me want to spare you the pain even more…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap020.jpg

Male Student: Well, it's more like I'm absorbing data that I can hopefully unravel and make sense of someday.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap022.jpg

Female Student: Going to start a collection? There could be Red Alice, Pink Alice…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap024.jpg

Male Student: That kiddy Servant used a magic that high-powered?

Male Student: I'll have to be careful of that…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap027.jpg

Female Student: But this is a virtual world, so it isn't like anything was even alive in the first place.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap029.jpg

Male Student: My next enemy might be you… *snicker*

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap031.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap032.jpg

Female Student: Once disaster strikes, it will be too late.

You know the retry option is never given a tutorial now that I think about it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap034.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: I can't identify who is responsible but this action is… troubling…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap036.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Let me think…

That puts Rani deep into thought.
I feel bad, seeing how serious
her face looks.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Is it all right if I carve a seal into your body?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Don't worry. The pain is momentary. It's not enough to break your soul so don't worry.

…Carve?
…Break my soul?

That's where I politely decline…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap043.jpg

I explain the situation to
Rin Tousaka, who responds in an
irritated tone tinged with worry.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: So, you want a way to recall your name in a reality marble designed to eradicate memories, right?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Hold up a sec… Did you say reality marble? That little brat's Servant actually created one?!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: To be able to affect the entire for such a long period of time… Definitely suspicious.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: She isn't a Legendary Soul, but some kind of malicious hack… I wonder how long she'll last…

…Th-That's nice and all, but does
she actually know of a way to
feet rid of the reality marble?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Huh? Why don't you just jot down a memo somewhere? Like on your hand or something.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap053.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch2.jpg: No maybes about it. Sometimes the best solution is the simplest one.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch2.jpg: Leaving a memo is required to make a barrier. It seems the law of the playground applies here.

To not think of such a simple
solution… Yeah, I feel like a
total idiot right now…

Regardless of my own embarrassment,
I make an effort to thank her
for her help.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch4.jpg: Why in the hell are you thanking me for something do trivial, you idiot?

And as expected, a vipeturative
response. I know we may have to
kill each other, but still, I
wish we could get along better.

…Whatever the case, I'd better
write my name on my hand before
I forget… literally.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap061.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: It's what any normal child would do. Oh, I forgot that you're- Sorry about bringing that up.

Anyway to TIGEEEEEEER

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap063.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Good job, soldier! I shall keep this contraband under tight security. Oh, by the way…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Your wonderful teacher has another favor to ask. Care to listen?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Yes ma'am

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Yay! You're my hero. Anyway, there is talk of an nice flow on the second floor of the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: So… If you could grab some chunks of ice from it, I'd really appreciate it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Why do I need ice? Well, let's just say it's for something that only an adult would understand.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: If you get some ice for me within the third round, I'll give you one of my prized possessions!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap070.jpg

Male Student: The code cast attached to it can restore your Servant's HP.

Male Student: I would recommend using this if the effects of Ether Fragment aren't cutting it anymore.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap073.jpg

Oh crap.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: Why'd they get so mad? Maybe 'cause they were scared of going away for good.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: But they just had to remember their name!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: Uh-huh. But maybe no one can.

Huh… that was weird.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap077.jpg

Female Student: And, of course, the proud gladiolus is oft associated with "forgetfulness."

Female Student: Is there something in your past you'd like to forget? Or is every memory precious to you?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap080.jpg

Again?!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: If the foist goes away, we won't have anything to play with.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg. And, the tea party should end now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: No more tea party? That's sad!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land2.jpg: It's sad. But we have to entertain them until it ends.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: Uh-huh. But how?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land2.jpg: How about cutting their heads off?

…You were doing so not creepy before.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder3.jpg: That would hurt!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land2.jpg: Uh-huh. it would hurt a lot! But that's okay. We'll find a new playmate.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder3.jpg: Then, yay! Alice is excited!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land2.jpg: Yay! Me too, Alice!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap091.jpg

Female Student: Do you think that maybe she's some kind of witch or something?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap093.jpg

Female Student: There are no more enemies in my world, just obstructions. Just vermin to be killed…Hehehe…

…Everyone is going nuts. I love it.

Anyway to the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap095.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap096.jpg

Guess which I am going to choose.

Franci…Xavi…?!

-Wait, calm down. Don't panic. I'm
not sure what these words mean, but
I know it's dead wrong. This other
name below Francis seems okay to
read out loud though.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap099.jpg

Hooters McBoobs!

The words that come out of my mouth
mean nothing to me.

But the atmosphere, so hostile
before, instantly loses any sense
of foreboding.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap103.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: Goodbye, lady.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap112.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap115.jpg

And so we explore the Arena. Finally.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap118.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap119.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 4/snap129.jpg

And so we leave.

Spoils: Return Crystal, Ether Fragment, Magic Crystal Shard (x2), 5000PPT, Imp's belt (Formal Wear), 1 lvl up (Level 17).

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap001.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap002.jpg

Thanks to Tousaka, I dispelled
the reality marble that Alice's
Servant had put in place.

…Actually, I have something else
I want to talk to Rin about, and
that's Alice's strength.

Considering how adept Rin is at
using magic through machines, she
might know more about Alice.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap006.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Perhaps her Servant is skilled at building alternate worlds, but frankly, the magic needed…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: …would overload the human brain and magic circuit. Still, Servants have to be fueled somehow…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: …otherwise they would just be very powerful objects at rest that tend to stay at rest.

If what Tousaka says is true, then
whatever Alice is, it isn't human.

I've heard that the data of dead
people in the SE.RA.PH manifest
like ghosts on occassion-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap012.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Humans don't die here, so the only virtual ghosts are echoes of angry hackers, etched into electrons.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Isn't it obvious? People aren't really alive here, so why would their ghosts be here?

There aren't any people in here,
either living or dead. Just magi
who've bonded their magic circuits
to the virtual world and hacked
in, like Rin.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Even if Mastters die, this isn't the place their spirits will haunt.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: The Moon Cell deletes the data of defeated Masters, and is thorough enough not to permit loose data.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: If data from any deceased person incorporates, it is immediately dismantled by the system.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Anyway, the point is this. Ghosts can't be created here.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: But someone who qualifies as "previously deceased" might be permitted by the Moon Cell.

A ghost…
Someone who's been dead since the
very beginning…

That's what she's talking about.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: All right, no more chit-chat. We're enemies, don't forget it!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: All right, no more chit-chat. We're enemies, don't forget it!

Evening.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap026.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: If what that insufferable girl said is true, that little girl exists only as a spirit.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: What do you say about us heading to the chapel and asking those sisters if they know anything?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: They're smart enough to do Alterations of the Soul; they should know something about this.

Go to the chapel? Not a bad idea.
The sisters who do the Alterations
of the Soul might know something.

I'll try to head over there later.

Okay but before that, our daily habit.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap032.jpg

Female Student: It's as if your libido rose up and erased your conscious mind.

Female Student: Yeah, that's probably how it works. The reality marble influences your unconscious mind.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap035.jpg

Female Student: If you're talking about reality marbles, you won't see that many Servants using them.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap037.jpg

Female Student: Is that girl even human?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap039.jpg

Male Student: The word "library" just doesn't do justice to this place. It's a veritable information bonanza!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap041.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap042.jpg

Female Student: Just select the Status option from the terminal menu to see your current stat levels.

Female Student: You can see your name, nickname, experience needed for the next level, and your equipment.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap045.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: Hmm. You might want to ask one of your fellow Masters about this.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap047.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: My apologies, but that is outside of my expertise, I do not know…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap049.jpg

Male Student: Hey, pull out a victory, okay? It'll make things easier for me in the future.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap051.jpg

Female Student: If you ask me, I'd say Alice's Servant is a Legendary soul who's an extremely talented magus.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap053.jpg

Female Student: I take it you got slapped around in the Arena by that Alice girl.

Female Student: I hope that you'll make it far enough we end up facing each other in the Coliseum.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap056.jpg

Male Student: She kept mumbling to herself how she'd never had anything lit it before in her life.

Male Student: Wow…just…wow… I never knew that there were people like her in the world.

Rani I guess. Unless Ciel is in the Grail War. If she is, we are hosed.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap059.jpg

Female Student: Also, thanks to my Servant, any low rent enemies I come across turn and run when they see me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap061.jpg

Male Student: Now I just have to worry about my Servant wanting to drag me around everywhere…

Well enough of that. To the chapel for plot.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap063.jpg

When I tell her I'm not looking
for an Alteration, Touko Aozaki
responds with irritation.

Before her mood entirely sours,
I ask her about the two Alices and
about ghosts.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Ghosts? Well, isn't that quaint.

Touko Aozaki becomes more animated
as she turns my way and says more.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap068.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: We sculpt your spiritual bodies in a way that maximizes the flow of energy from Master to Servant.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: I've seen those Alices girls plenty. It's not for me to say whether they're twins, but-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: From what I can see, the girl is what people call a "ghost."

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: If she is indeed a cyber ghost, she'd have no bodily limitations to her magic output.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Without a brain to burn out, she would have no limits.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Even if her soul started to break apart, she would continue to spew magic until it all burnt out.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Still, for a ghost to utilize so much magic, she'd need excellent compatibility with her Servant.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Do you know her Servant's class?

Recalling that brute, I conclude
that it must be Berserker. That is
what I answer.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: A Berserker? Are you sure you aren't mistaken?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: This Servant is using a large-scale reality marble, right? That's not a Berserker's style.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: A reality marble is highly advanced thaumaturgy. So if you think about it, a Caster makes more sense.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: …I'm sure there's more to the story, though.

A Berserker wouldn't use a reality
marble? does that mean?

But, if that's true, then what in
the world is Alice's Servant?

I haven't solved the mystery of
the twins, but I think I now know
that Alice is… special.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Are you done asking questions? Then I'll get back to work. It may not look like it, but I'm busy.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: …Hrmph. What I wouldn't give for a nice, talented underling who can make a good pot of coffee.

After that, Touko Aozaki becomes
absorbed with her papers, tuning
out everything around her.

That's my cue to get lost. I offer
a slight bow to Touko Aozaki and
leave the chapel.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: Uh-huh, let's run away now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: I want to, too! Let's read a story, Alice(blue).

Alice must have run away from me.

It would be good for me to speak
to Alice about cyber ghosts.

I just need to find where she ran
off to…

So where did she go. Well they did mention reading, so…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap100.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: did we mistake it for the MArch Hare?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land2.jpg: Off with its head.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder3.jpg: Uh-oh! Run, bunny!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: Guess what? The white rabbit's here.

!!!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: Where? How do you know?

There's some static.

Then, in the blink of an eye,
both Alices disappear.

They're really amazing spirit
hackers. Shinji would be nothing
in comparison.

There one second and gone the next,
as if the system rules didn't apply
to them at all.

They're like ghosts.

I can't see how I-or anyone else
for that matter-could defeat them.

That's when I realize there's a
piece of paper near my foot.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap119-1.jpg

…???
It's gibberish.

Should I ask Touko Aozaki again?
I might learn something.

Chapel (again) go.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap122.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap123.jpg

I relate what just happened in the
Library and how her the code I
picked up there. She frowns.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Hmm? Again with the quaint things. This is mirror writing.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Anyone can read this, with the aid of a mirror. And don't ask me for one, find it yourself.

A mirror…
There must be a mirror somewhere.
I better go find one.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Weren't you saying a little bit ago that you thought your enemy's Servant was a Berserker?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Think again.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: A reality marble is a tool used by Servants with low combat ability. That's not a Berserker's style.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: So tell me, which came first-the Berserker or the reality marble.

Her words spark a realization.

The Berseker didn't exist before
the reality marble. They're one
and the same.

First, I'll solve the mystery of
this code.

There must be a mirror somewhere
around campus.

So we go to a place where there is bound to be a mirror.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap136.jpg

There'e a mirror.

I hold up the code to the mirror
and try to read it. It turns out
to be English. Let me see…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap140.jpg

A monster that gets decapitated
with the Vorpal Balde…
Jabberwock?

The name of the monster written
on the note Alice dropped…

So that means…
Is that her "friend's" name, I wonder-

I might be able to learn more if
I head over to the library.

So we go.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap146.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap147.jpg

the Jabberwock is the titular monster
of the poem "Jabberwock" by Lewis
Carrol. The poem appeared…

In "Through the Looking Glass."
The poem portrays a nameless hero's
quest to slay the fearsome beast.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap150.jpg

…crap.

Alice suddenly appears behind me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap152.jpg

-I'm going to ask Alice about this
Jabberwock I just read about.

Is your Servant's true name…
Jabberwock?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap155.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg; The Jabberwock is my-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap157.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: Huh?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: We have to go bye-bye now. We might wake up from the dream if we talk too much.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: Yep! See you later, lady!

…And, they're gone

But, I've learned that while the
monster is in fact the Jabberwock,
it's not their Servant.

If that's true, then it's like
Touko Aozaki says, and Alice's
Servant is actually…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 3/Day 5/snap164.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: *Giggle* There's a little bit of overlap between the two of us, but I'm the better Caster by far!

Does that mean they're not twins,
but that the Servant is a copy of
the Master?

Although I haven't quite gotten to
the heart of the matter, I think I
am headed in the right direction.

It feels like the truth is within
arm's reach.

So to search for them.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%206/snap001.jpg

Male Student: I am SO ready. I've got my two cipher keys and I know the real name of my opponent's Servant.

Male Student: All right, let's rock this round!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%206/snap004.jpg

Female Student: How about you? Have you found out the real name of that little girl's Servant yet?

Female Student: Do everything you can now, or you will regret it later.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%206/snap007.jpg

Male Student: I came across my opponent in the Arena, pretend I was weak, gave a false real name, and ran away.

Male Student: I'm excited for tomorrow. *Snicker*…

You know this is smart. I mean sure you are not trustworthy or anything but considering that you are pretending to be weak, they would think you are afraid or something. People should try this tactic more often, it could work. And by people I mean Leo GMing the whole EXTRA thing on the RP forum.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%206/snap010.jpg

Male Student: She's basically a walking, talking doll… Way creepy. Good luck, you'll need it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%206/snap012.jpg

Male Student: Especially before a fight. Pay at least a little attention to what's going around you, huh?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%206/snap014.jpg

Female Student: If you don't, you might unwittingly be setting your Servant up for a gruesome demise.

She is telling the truth. I should know. OTZ

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%206/snap031.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%206/snap033.jpg

Female Student: As much as I regret it, I'd rather not have flowers offered in my memory.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%206/snap035.jpg

Male Student: They seemed pretty dinky when they attacked me in the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%206/snap037.jpg

Female Student: So, I'm psyching myself up for the Elimination battle by practicing archery here.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%206/snap039.jpg

Male Student: Getting all of your preparation done early will let you focus on more important things.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%206/snap041.jpg

Male Student: The exquisite scent! The subtle play of flavors! The way the spices enhanced the bean curd,

Male Student: I-It made me weep with its perfection… I can now die with nary a regret!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%206/snap044.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: …I-Is something wrong? You look all scowly.

Alice looks puzzled. I blurt out
what's in my head.

Does your mirror?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%206/snap054.jpg

The answer catches me by surprise.
My heart clenches in my chest.

I am not Alice. I am Alice, Servant
of the girl called Alice.

This is disorienting. I'm not even
sure which one I'm talking to.

-Mirror images.

The two of them are mirror images
of each other. Reflections.

Alice's dreams take shape in the
mirror world. Story dreams, where
her Servant is the protagonist.

So that's it. Her Servant is the
protagonist of her stories. No, a
fanciful character turned warrior.

The girl is grinning up at me,
like none of this fazes her.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land.jpg: Ooh, I can't wait!

Alice waltzes off, a smile playing innocently on her face.

-Can I defeat her?

But if I don't win, I'll be the one
to disappear. I glance at the Arena
door expectantly.

I turn toward the voice coming
from behind me.

He was the clothes of a priest,
which in the end only makes his
snide tongue more jarring.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: Come to the first floor when ready. You can do something trifling like stop by the commissary if needed.

Apparently finished, he opens the
door and lets himself out.

In preparation for the Elimination
Battle, I should go to the chapel
and the commissary,

Or, I should go to my personal room
and sort out my information on the
enemy Servant.

And then, once that's in order,
I'll go to where Kotomine is.

Right, so let's do detective work.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%207/snap010.jpg

It would be good to review all the
things that have happened this week,
one by one.

First, there was te "friend" who
turned out to be a monster.
I thought it was…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%207/snap013.jpg

Right. From the ferocious intensity
that Alice's friend displayed.

I was positive it was a Berserker.

Next Alice erected a reality marble
in the Arena.

It was a reality marble so large
it blanketed half the Arena. It
had the ability to…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%207/snap018.jpg

That's right, Alice proclaimed that
inside of it, people would forget
their names-

Then they'd forget they existed
entirely. It was scary.

However, if I was to believe that
the monster was her Servant, then
the Alices would be twin Masters.

According to the rules established
by the Holy Grail, there can be only
one Master per Servant.

So then, how could there be two
Alices AND a summoned monster?

The answer to that puzzle is…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%207/snap025.jpg

Touko Aozaki pointed out to me that
Berserkers are incapable of using
reality marbles.

Then, while I was researching in the
library, Alice herself said that the
Jabberwock wasn't her Servant.

Here's my thought-

"It's all the same thing."

The Jabberwock. The reality marble-
They're part of the Noble Phantasm
created by the other Alice.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%207/snap031.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%207/snap032.jpg

…And then.

There is the fact that Alice's
very essence seems to mingle with
her Servant's.

Alice's Servant can't exist without
Alice's dreams, and Alice can't live
without her Servants.

Which makes sense if she's been
dead, probably a long time.

Alice is stuck in a dream, always
trying to grant her own last wishes.

Alice's Servant's identity is best
described as the channel through
which Alice's dreams manifest-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg. I thought Alice wasn't going to be lonely anymore!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: If you don't like me, then I don't need you, lady!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land2.jpg: Alice is the only one Alice needs. She's the only Alice for Alice.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Wonder.jpg: You're not my Alice, lady.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%207/snap089.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Land2.jpg: You can join us today, lady. Fun, fun, fun! I'm supper happy.

The elevator vibrates to a halt.
We're there.

Well then. Let's do this. This is going to be depressing I already suspect.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qkil3Lkn0-g

Yep depressing. Also alternate option what alternate option, I only saw a Yes and nothing more. Shut up I'm a softie.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%207/snap095.jpg

This is the third death I've
caused. The rules of the Holy
Grail War demand that I kill.

But that girl will never see
another day because of me. The
guilt weighs heavily on my soul.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%207/snap098.jpg

What, is this going to be a thing?

A warm, caring voice breaks
through my gloom.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: The loss of life is a sad affair. Especially if it's a consequence of the ruthlessness of war.

Ruthlessness?
I think "pointlessness" would be
more accurate.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Point taken. However, you fight because you have no other choice. You either kill, or die.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: There is no mercy to be found in war. And the sadness of causing death is still there.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: But humanity dreams of the Holy Grail's power. They entrust their hopes to a higher power.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: They do this because they know that they aren't capable of doing what is best for all.

…More so than death, this fact
is what saddens the most,
said Leo.

That's really pathetic. People
who can't save themselves and us
who are already damned.

Those words ring of someone who
sees themselves as a savior of a
world in chaos.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Wait before you pass judgement. I was born and raised to be king of the world.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: I'll remember your grief and her pain so that one day none will have to die for nothing.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: I have joined this battle in order to end the world's cycle of suffering and deprivation.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Once control is restored, I can put an end to the conflicts brought on by scarcity and want.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Isn't that what you desire? For your grief and her death to have meaning?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: In a perfect society, all people must be equal. To save the world, there must be equilibrium.

Though his ideas are poison,
there is a seductiveness to his
words that is hard to ignore.

Or maybe his ideas are what's
needed to heal a fractured world.

The boy's oddly comforting voice
lifts my spirits, which had sunk
after Alice's death.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%207/snap118.jpg

Suddenly forcing her way into
the conversation was none other
than Rin.

The unrestrained hatred in her
voice perfectly matches the
animosity of her expression.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%207/snap121.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: I care about all. I wish nothing more than to see a world where everyone has their place.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: And of course that place is under your rule, with you deciding who lives and who dies, correct?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Your world is place where you alone decide whether a child is to be fed or left to starve.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Where a person's entire life is dictated by the whims of the Harway family's desires.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: However, you are not a god. If you want to live as you do now forever, go ahead. I don't care.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: But for me, I cannot and will not accept things as they currently are now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: If you wish to build a country dominated by "saints," fine. Just leave humanity out of it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: So my information about you being a potential insurgent was correct after all, Miss Tousaka.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: You assume I don't understand your position and in that you're wrong. However-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: You need to realize the efficient distribution of resources depends on proper management.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: I can assure you that my family has no plans to stockpile goods for financial gain.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Once you see how the rule, you will understand our grand design for the well-being of humanity.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%207/snap134.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: A paradise based on stasis and class immobility. No change and no hope of a better future.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: A paradise based on stasis and class immobility. No changes and no hope of a better future.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Stability at the expense of hope and joy. A world where people don't live only merely exist.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch2.jpg: I mock anyone who'd choose that path. Living as merely one of the flock doesn't appeal to me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%207/snap138.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Perhaps it is good to feel that you're in a fight to preserve your very existence.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg. However, would you wish for all of mankind to suddenly be given the same strength?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch4.jpg: Um…I mean…that is to say…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg. Of course you wouldn't. You are all too aware of your selfishness and your pride.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Because of that, you could not share your pain with those without the strength to bear it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch4.jpg: I-I could, and would! I'm not as softhearted as you make me out to be.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%207/snap145.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: What did you just say…?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Joy is ephemeral. In order to save humanity, you must first be willing to let them die.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: The world needs a strong leader, Miss Tousaka. And once I gain the power of the Holy Grail-

I will be the one true king and
my virtue will illuminate the
darkness that engulfs the world.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%207/snap150.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Opposition to our rule comes from outside the farm, to expand on your analogy a little.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%207/snap152.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Our current view is that the populations of the Asian region are…expendable.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Of course, we have plans to integrate the region should they choose to support our aims.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%207/snap155.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: What exactly do you understand?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch2.jpg: That I was right in entering the Holy Grail War this time around!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: So, Leonardo Bistario Harway, heir apparent to the head of the plutocratic Harway family…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: I swear to you that I will crush your delusions of genocide and despotic rule.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: To be perfectly clear: You intend to kill me?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Seeing as I seriously doubt that anything short of taking your life would stop you, yes.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: …I see.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: I have faith that someone of your intellect will understand one day. -Or maybe you already do?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%207/snap165.jpg

Rin's open declaration of war.

…I don't think it'll escalate
hostilities the way it did
with Julius.

Leo has chosen his path and she
has done so as well.

Their battle will be fought
within the Holy Grail War. One
will win; the other will die.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%207/snap171.jpg

Unlike the real world I can feel
the weight of this virtual world
press down on me.

Even so…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/Day%207/snap174.jpg

That's right. When it comes down
to it, fighting is my only real
option. It's either fight or die.

But how long can I keep this up?
When I can't bring myself to
continue even one step farther-

Wow...Alice and Alice, why're you so Woobie (I think that's the right term in this case)? ;A;

Rin or Rani...gah! I know that even if I vote that it's not likely going to make much of a difference.
I want to see more of Rani, though... ;w;

Every vote counts. You may be able to make a difference.

You'll be surprised. And yeah Leo's ideology is correct on a few things. *Must not sperg about law and chaos*

Her, Her and Me.

Back on Week 3 Day 1

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap002.jpg

the girl in red is Rin Tousaka and
the other is a girl the same age
as Rin, or a little older.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap004.jpg

The girls size each other up, and
without a word, each glances away
from the other.

One of these two girls will die.
That is what fate has decided.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap009.jpg

I'm not the only witness.

It's Julius. He walks over to the
bulletin after the two have left.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: Neither side will hold back in the battle. If I could watch the fight I could learn quite a bit.

Without a single glance this way,
they leave.

I really don't understand, but I'm
nervous anyway…

Week 3 Day 7

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap015.jpg

Her body language is as aloof as
ever, but I can see the focus in
her gaze.

Today's the day they fight. One
of them will die.

Come to think of it. I haven't seen
Julius. That's nothing unusual but
it worries me for some reason.

What Julius said in front of the
bulletin board about Rin and Rani's
battle is still bugging me.

Maybe it would be a good idea to
track down Julius.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap024.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap025.jpg

I sense him moving, and shuffle
away from the door in a panic.
There's nowhere to hide.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap027.jpg

His aura of murderous intent makes
my heart leap out of my chest. But
then he promptly leaves.

Even though he's tried to kill me
in the past, Julius doesn't seem
to register my existence.

Maybe I'm not worth it for him to
suffer yet another penalty for
fighting outside the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap031.jpg

The Multimedia Room is a bit bigger
than the regular classrooms. At the
front of the room is a screen.

Instead of a ceiling projector,
there is an old-fashioned film
projector. That's odd.

It could be here all the time for
all I know. I never visit this room-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap035.jpg

My Servant is right. That film
projector seems to be warping the
very air-well, data-around it.

Something must have been done to
it, probably by Julius.

For what purpose? As I reach out
to inspect it-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap039.jpg

…Weird. When I touched it, sparks
went flying in my brain. I think I
was attacked by some program.

Aksys.app

But, although it makes me dizzy, the
effects pass immediately. I don't
think it did any damage.

…I wonder what it was? Somehow
I don't think it was Julius's doing.

I'm pulled from my reverie by the
earth-splitting sound of a weapon.
Someone means business.

I brace myself, thinking Julius
has returned, but he's nowhere to
be seen.

Then suddenly, an image emblazons
itself on my brain-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap046.jpg

This must be…an Elimination Battle
between the two of them.

The film projector spins into
motion, projecting images of
the battle onto the screen.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap108.jpg

There is a battle between Rin's Lancer and Rani's Servant.

IOU Video about their battle.

There we go.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap050.jpg

In any case, why did Julius leave
halfway through?

Was that his plan?
Or did something go wrong?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap053.jpg

My Servant draws my attention to
the screen.

Rin and Rani are facing each other.
The forms of their Servant can't
be made out clearly.

The image quality isn't bad, per se.
It's more like there's a masking
effect overlaid to hide them.

Even eight that security measure, I can
tell both Servants wield long shafts.
They're both Lancers, then.

My eyes only see the sparks from
their lances as each thrusts,
parries, swipes, and defends.

Rani's Servant seems massively
powerful, but Rin's isn't giving
an inch. Either one could win-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap060.jpg

Caster declares Rin's victory as
if it were obvious.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: the other Master is aggressive but she's too slow to respond. At this level, that's a fatal flaw.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Oops, sorry! Am I spoiling the movie for you, Master? I'll be quiet now.

Rin notices she's winning, too.
Her posture is full of confidence.

On the other hand, there is a
hint of alarm on Rani's otherwise
expressionless face.

The place goes red and static fills the screen.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap067.jpg

The one who backed off was Rani.
her Servant contorts and starts
gathering energy.

Even through the blurry screen, I
can tell an inordinate amount of
power is being summoned.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap070.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap071.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap072.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap073.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch4.jpg: Wait, what? Atlas homunculi can pull off crazy stuff like that?

…You fool, this sin't something
to self-destruct over!

After taking a beating from Rin,
Rani must be intending to use her
last resort. Nevermind Rin, wouldn't
that liquify the entire Arena…?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap077.jpg

That's a trump card you can only
use twice in the entirety of the
war, and Rani just used one.

…No, her Command Seal isn't what's
causing this horrendous power
to well up from within her.

Her hearts is a kiln on the verge
of exploding. Anyone who saw her
right now could tell.

Rani's body was built with the
capacity to overload like this.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap082.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap083.jpg

Rin's Servant addresses her with a
flippant tone totally unsuited to
the intensity of the situation.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap085.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Her heart's made of etherlite! Befoe she blows up the Arena, skewer her to the core with your Noble Phantasm!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Sufferer.jpg: Ooh, I like it when you're desperate. What a treat. All right, it's finally time to end this!

At Rin's command, Lancer takes a stance
and gathers his strength. It builds
and builds until-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap089.jpg

Caster speaks her mind quietly in
deference to my feelings, but I get
the meaning loud and clear.

This will settle the battle. They
will destroy each other before they
can even resort to Command Seals.

Both of them might die on the sopt.
Even if one of them survives, she'd
probably be fatally injured.

While I'm lost in those terrible
thoughts, Caster starts staring
at me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap094.jpg

I didn't realize I was telegraphing
my emotions. But, more importantly,
what did my Servant just say?

Could there be some way to save
them? It sounds like there might be.
…What can be done?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: …Wellll… I can't say there's NO way…

Her eyes downcast, she touches my
left hand. My Command Seals.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap099.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: But, only your Command Seals could teleport me to where they are.

So, it's actually impossible.
Still, Command Seals exist to make
miracles happen…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/snap102.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: If it's what you want, Master, of course I'll do it.

So here it is. The route split event. Every forumite can vote for one heroine to be chosen. The non-chosen one dies. Simple. We start with

Rani: 1*
Rin: 0

*I count as a forumite. No sir, there is no cheating here, only clever wording. Also not counting Lyco's vote yet, he may or may not change his mind after the update.

Bring people that don't even know what's happening so your favorite heroine wins. You have exactly 48 hrs before the voting closes. Just post your pick because I still won't add a poll.

I'm going to vote for Rani, because I want to know more about her, since all I've heard about Rin's route is that the fight with Rani and her Berserker is boring and leaves something to be wanted.

It's more like we know a lot about Rin and not much about Rani.

EXTRA!Rin lacks what made Stay Night!Rin tolerable. Also Tsundere overload.

Well if she loses, she dies. And if she self-destructs she, at least, takes out an enemy. It's a objective win-win when you know you are screwed.

Apparently we are screwing Rani... wait a minute.

Rani: 7

Exactly, that's my point. You're going to die. At this point, what happens in the world is not your problem anymore. The opponent proved him/herself to be stronger (eventually better?) than you, so why stealing the victory from him/her like an asshole?

Unless the winning opponent didn't achieve victory properly (for example, he cheated), or is evil (in which case leaving the grail to him isn't a good idea) - that's why I said it still has its usefulness. But Rin doesn't seem to fall in these cases.

Mah, whatever. I should point out, just in case, that my statement wasn't too much serious.

Going with Rani, because we get to see a cameo, Rani develops and also because 4th Week Lancer kicked my Archer's butt so many times that I am still kind of mad at him.

Saving Rani

Video Here (You should really watch this)
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap001.jpg
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmsqwP_BVd0)
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap003.jpg

Power surges through my feet,
electrifying the air and bending
the floor. Apace warps around me.

The distortion rips a hole in the
screen. My Servant leaps toward it
and the world melts into streaks.

My vision goes black from the rapid
acceleration. My hand tingles where
the Command Seal burned off.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap008.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap009.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: You…?!

The magic swirling around Rani's
body ebbs a bit in response to her
surprise at the sudden intruder.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap012.jpg

Before I can so much as blink,
Rani's hulking Servant has turned
his spear on me…!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap014.jpg

Rani's order falls on deaf ears.

I expected as much.

Since her Servant is a Berserker,
he can probably only see other
Masters as enemies.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap018.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: Use another Command Seal, Master! If we can defend against them, the SE.RA.PH should intervene!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap020.jpg

FUCK THAT! WE ARE HARDCORE ENOUGH!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap021.jpg

LET'S DO THIS!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap022.jpg

(We survive. Berserker skills hits for 717 guarded. Yikes!)

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap023.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap024.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap025.jpg

Rani's body slumps to the ground.

…Because she's been run through
by the lance of Rin's Servant.

During those seconds when Caster
arrested Berserker's attention, he
threw his lance into Rani's heart!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap029.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap030.jpg

The giant gives a bestial roar and
charges at the lance wielder who
impaled his Master's chest.

However-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap033.jpg

An impassable barrier drops down
between Rin and Rani. Maybe it's
because of my intrusion, or because
the SE.RA.PH declared a victor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap036.jpg

Rin is shouting something, but the
barrier prevents me from hearing it.
She points at me, frightened-

No!
She's not pointing at me,
but behind me at Rani!

Hooked on the end of the red lance
that pierced Rani is an energy core
on the verge of exploding!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap040.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap041.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: We'll die if we're hit by that! We'll dieee!

Log out- I know that's what I have
to do. If I just give in to the
pressure wrapping around my body,
I'll be back on campus soon.

But then what about her?
What about that girl who's lying
wounded on the ground?

A barrier separates her and Rin.

I, who had fought with Berserker,
was suddenly by the fallen girl-
by Rani…!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap047.jpg

She's alive…!
Even though her chest is pierced
through, Rani's still alive!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: Yeeagh! I knew it! I knew you'd end up doing that!

Suddenly, I realize I'm running.
Toward Rani, the lance that pierced
her a few meters away, where
the core is about to explode.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap051.jpg

I'm not listening. I gather Rani
in my arms and run, waiting for
the SE.RA.PH to kick me out.

…It doesn't happen in time.
Faster than the SE.RA.PH can log
me out, Rani's heart liquifies
the area-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap054.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap055.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap058.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap059.jpg

Berserkers. Too Awesome.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap061.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap062.jpg

Those words are all she can manage.
She blacks out.

…The wound on her chest seems to
have healed already. And somehow,
she's still alive without her heart.

I always sensed she was special,
even among Masters.

As I tend to Rani, I glance at the
screen. It's dark-probably because
of the earlier explosion.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap067.jpg

According to the doctor, she awoke
briefly, but immediately fell back
into a comatose state.

They say her body is fine, so she
must be mentally exhausted.

After nearly an hour, Rani's long
eyelashes flutter open.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap071.jpg

She blinks twice, three times.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll4.jpg: I… lost…

Her voice is small and her words
are spoken flatly.

She stares blankly into thin air,
her eyes glassy and distant.

She reminds me of-
Yeah, of a broken doll.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap077.jpg

I try to meet Rani's eyes as I
begin speaking to her.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap079.jpg

She doesn't respond.

Without the faint breathing and
blinking, she's so lifeless she
could pass for dead.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap084.jpg

Come to think of it, I haven't
heard a peep out of my Servant in
a while. They must be angry…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap086.jpg

Uh-huh.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: I was just thinking really hard.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Wouldn't you feel better if we talked? I always do! Let's see, something to talk about…

The tone of her voice is the same,
but her words seem forced, What's
really on her mind?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap090.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I was just thinking how valuable that woman must be for you to have used a Command Seal for her.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: But, no matter how you look at it, that girl is broken. You wouldn't abandon her, would you, Master?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: I wonder, if that had been me, would you have done the same…?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: …Oops. Silly me! I shouldn't think about me when my Master is the one who's really valuable.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: My master could use a hundred-no two hundred Command Seals and still deserve to use more!

Seemingly satisfied, Caster leaves.
Too nervous to call Caster back,
I decide to leave for now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap097.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap098.jpg

Just her glare is enough to
convey all of the anger and
hostility she has towards me.

Not that I blame her. If I had
interfered in the Coliseum, we
all would have died.

Okay, this line either makes no sense, or I don't get it.

Considering her powers as a magus,
Rin could just drag me somewhere
to fight like Julius did.

Now that I think about it, I'm
pretty sure that her curiosity is
the only think keeping me alive.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: If Masters can start teaming up, it'll completely destroy the balance of the Holy Grail War.

=V

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Even the most skillful use of a Command Seal shouldn't be enough to bypass the Coliseum's security.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: To be blunt, you don't seem like that great of a magus. How did you pull off the impossible?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: …And before you answer, remember that I reward truth and reason, and punish lies and stupidity.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Don't be naive enough to think Julius is the only who knows how to circumvent the rules.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: I'm willing to risk drawing the ire of the system to deal with a threat of this magnitude.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap113.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap114.jpg

As no real battle information
was exposed, the identity of Rin's
Servant remains unknown.

Though she would never admit it,
it's obvious that she's more than
a little relieved by the thought.

Of course, Rin being Rin, her
facade of suspicion and hostility
didn't disappear entirely.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: But id Julius wasn't able to break through the security, how did you manage to pull it off?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Trying to wreak through the firewall would have caused the system to fry your brain.

The SE.RA.PH attack program.
I remember having to deal with it
at first, but it doesn't seem to
affect me anymore.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: That can't be right. Even if your body is safe, your brain wouldn't be able to handle the strain…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: …Oh, speaking of which… Aren't you… I mean…

I could see the bewilderment in
her eyes Her confusion ALMOST
overcame her normal animosity.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%203/After/Rani/snap124.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: However, if you choose to continue fighting, we will remain enemies. Keep that in mind.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: One last thing: DO NOT spy on me again. Should you try, your suffering will be legendary.

I can't recall hearing the name.

I might have heard the name
before, but…
Why bring him up now?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: No reason, really. you kind of remind me of him. Never mind, just forget I asked.

I am left alone with my thoughts

-I've even taken the life of a
child. Master or not, Alice was
just a young girl.

I wonder if I deserve to be alive.
And what is my reason for
continuing on?

Shinji was determined to survive
until the end, even as he screamed
in panic he didn't want to die.

Though Dan was true of heart, he
died still believing that every
battle had true meaning.

And Alice…who was just lonely.
A lost little child who only wanted
someone to play with.

The one who overcame them all and
took their lives in the process was
me. Using my Servant as a weapon.

I wonder if my purpose is enough
to compensate for taking their
lives. My purpose…
-To avoid death.

And as for what Dan said. That he
wanted me to find some meaning in
my battles.

Could I really find something like
that inside myself when I don't
even know who, or what, I am?

Even if the memories that were
erased before the prelims were to
return, could I find it within me-?

…To find meaning in any if
my fights.

Anyway, to the board.

…I have absolutely no idea what
he's talking about.

One thing is clear. This man named
Gatou has conviction and passion.

…In suffocating quantities.

Evening.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Oh yeah, I bet you forgot about the person that you accidentally rescued! You should go tease her a little.

Listening to Caster talk reminds
me of something.

The one I saved using my Command Seal
to disrupt her Elimination Battle
should be in the nurse's office now.

-I wonder if she's all right.

It might be a selfish thought on my
part, but I wonder if going to see
her will change anything.

I should probably go to the
nurse's office later and visit her.

But before student talking… and there's no one in the classroom or outside in the hallway.

…Oh.

Caster talking then.

Female Student: You're a weirdo magnet, huh?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap058.jpg

Male Student: You look pretty laid back. Did you consider how risky it was to save a MAster like her?

Male Student: Jeez… that was uncalled for.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap062.jpg

-Suddenly, my eyes stop on a book.
the spine is white and textless.
I feel…drawn to it.

I pull the book out and open it.
Inside is the following.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap068.jpg

However the nature of its makeup
and construction remains mysteries
unknowable to humankind.

It is doubtful humans will ever
unlock the secrets of the Moon
Cell's unique construction.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap071.jpg

-At some point, Leo and his Servant
had walkup up to me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap073.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Don't mind me. Enjoy the read.

-Leo's sudden appearance made me
nervous, but I want to leaner more
about the Holy Grail.

Before long, though, we learned
the artifact was in operation. The
Holy Grail observes the Earth.

For eons, it has recorded activity
on Earth-all of it, even individual
lives, ideologies and souls.

The Holy Grail is an up-to-the-
second blueprint of the Earth.
Some say it is a divine relic.

Eons of life on Earth… recorded?
That's… extraordinary.

So extraordinary that I can barely
process it…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap081.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: We Harways even know the material that composes the Holy Grail. Come back here if you're interested.

Leo and his Servant leave-

What's inside this book is just
the tip of the iceberg?

If that's the case, then what
does he know?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap086.jpg

Female Student: Alice, Sir Blackmore, and Shinji Matou were all considered to be top contenders.

Female Student: You're blessed with incredible fortune, Hooters. May victory continue to be yours.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap089.jpg

Female Student: We've reached the midpoint of the Holy Grail War. That doesn't mean you can afford to coast, though.

Female Student: May the Holy Grail continue to illuminate your path.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap092.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: …Hmm. As she has lost her Servant, I guess she will be given special dispensation…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: However, should she intervene in any battle form here on out…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: her existence will be immediately terminated by the Holy Grail- Please tell her to be careful.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap096.jpg

Male Student: It was a buff old guy. He was just staring off into space and mumbling about some weird god…

Male Student: I mean, is that guy really a Master like the rest of us?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap099.jpg

Female Student: But helping an enemy is a pretty frivolous thing to do. I wonder what your opponent thinks…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap103.jpg

I try to greet her, but she doesn't
even look my way. Then, suddenly,
Rani's mouth opens.

Her wide eyes remain unfocused,
and her body doesn't move, but
small, monotone words escape from
her lips.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap106.jpg

Rani repeats herself, staring at
the ceiling.

Why… Why did you save me?

Because your brain was about to be
destroyed. Because you were going
to die.

You were killing each other, and
I was about to watch someone die.
Anyone would've stepped in.

At least, -I- had to. I might not
have memories, but it felt like my
past self was urging me on.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap112.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: How arrogant of you. Now I can no longer… no longer carry out my professor's wishes.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Without the last parallax artifact created by the Atlas Institute… I no longer have purpose.

Rani speaks without inflection.

The parallax artifact must be that
heart-or whatever- that she tried
to drive critical. No, if it was
really her heart, she'd be dead.

She's always been emotionless, but
how despondent she is right now
really takes the cake.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap118.jpg

My words just die.

I come here to stop worrying, and
her question drives a stick into
the bee's nest of my emotions.

After I am unable to answer for
several long, tense moments, Rani
mutters my name.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap122.jpg

She keeps talking, as if drawing
slowly closer to a conclusion.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: You took away my one reason to be here-the mission bestowed upon me by my professor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: In other words, I no longer have any reason to exist.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap127.jpg

She had a motive to risk her life
for the Holy Grail.

With my intervention, I managed to
waltz in and cripple that motive.

Suddenly, I'm startled out of my
silent contemplation by a beeping
from my computer terminal.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap131.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap132.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap133-1.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: I don't have any medicines for you today, but I've made you a lunch. I hope you like it…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap135.jpg

And we're ambushed on the 1st floor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap136.jpg

That bit of seemingly heart-felt
abuse could only come from
one person…

Did she just called her a tsundere?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Luckily, I've become inured to your ignorance. But seriously, I need to talk to you, okay?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: It looks like you somehow managed to erect a barrier, even as you play dumb for Julius.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap140.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: You'd better have a convincing answer, or your trips to the Arena will become a nightmare.

Rin's gaze becomes sharp enough
to cut glass. I somehow know that
the wrong answer will be fatal.

However, that realization makes
it easier to answer, as I have
nothing to lose at this point.

To find out what exactly I am.

Several people have asked me the
same thing, and their curiosity is
tinged with suspicion and unease.

Am I really? so different from the
other Masters…?

Rin's expression quickly changes
from one of hostility to one of
unease in the blink of an eye.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap148.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: …Fine. Just…take this and go to the Arena now.

As she's speaking, Rin hands
me something.

…A jeweled pendant?
Why would she give me…?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap152.jpg

That's a very tsundereish expression.

Anomaly…?
What could that possibly…?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: The anomalies are flaws in the Arena's construction the system uses to make seraphs when needed.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Think of them as flaws in the firewall. Normally secure data will sometimes be leaked through them.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap156.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: That gem has been banned as Formal Wear. It'll let you access any distortions you find.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: Distortions contain various kinds of information. You might learn something to allay your worries.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: It's a simple process, really. Just track down a distortion and the pendant will do the rest.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: If my theory is correct, you should be able to learn more about yourself. I'm sure of it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap163.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap164.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: We'll see each other again… If your luck manages to hold, that is…

…So I just need to take this
with me into the Arena and find
those shining areas.

To charge this item and find
clues about myself, I'll hunt
down the Arena's magic hotspots.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap168.jpg

Male Student: I will redouble my efforts as commissary manager to ensure you have everything you need to win.

Male Student: New Formal Wear has been trickling in, so be on the lookout for new items.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap171.jpg

Male Student: …You're not shacking up…? Haha, I see your game. Playing the chivalrous hero, are we?

No, we are not. Asshole.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap173.jpg

Female Student: Playing the hero is all well and good, except for the part where she's your enemy!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap175.jpg

Female Student: Man, was I wrong about you… You might just be a memory, but you're still a magus, it seems.

ARENA go, go, go.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap177.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap178.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: We should avoid contact with them until we know more than that we're facing one nasty Servant!

We crawl around. No screenshots of treasure or anything because every enemy was almost killing. Will have to spend some points on defense sometime soon.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap180.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap181.jpg

There's some static here.

-! When I approach the light, a
splitting headache tears through
my brain.

But, it leaves as soon as it comes.

Now that I've come in contact with
the residual magic, can Rin find
something out about me…?

All right, now that I've done what
I set out to do in the Arena, I
guess I should leave-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap186.jpg

That clothing style… that hair… no… you wouldn't …

That grating voice-
It must be Gatou.

Damn, we're in the Arena…
his Servant is right there. Does
he want to go at it right now-?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap189.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap190.jpg

Effing hell.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Is that a Berserker?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: That's my least favorite class to deal with…but I'll do my best!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vampire.jpg:…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap194.jpg

Like hell I'm fighting HER.

…? What's going on?
She's not coming at us…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap197.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vampire.jpg: …

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Zealot.jpg: Aha, you've decided to consecrate this place as a training ground.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Zealot.jpg: Then, I will walk whatever path of needles you chose: endure the whips of any hellish demons for you!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Zealot.jpg: I revel in the self-flagellation that you allow me to suffer on these grounds!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Zealot.jpg: you heard me, child! There's no time for us to play today. You have my permission to excuse yourself.

…It looks like our lives have been
spared by some form of divine will?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap204.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I wouldn't mind fighting right now! But, I have a bad feeling about it.

If Caster wants to retreat, then
I better follow her advice.

Retreat for now, and when we know
more about them, then we can engage.

And we leave the Arena. We level up once. (Lvl 19)

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap208.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: It won't… go kablooie all of a sudden, or leak information about us, will it?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: What a great plan, Master, to go along with what the enemy wants! Wait…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Well, let's ask that girl about distortion stuff.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/snap212.jpg

Next up: Rin, you magnificent bitch.

Revelations.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap000.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap001.jpg

It feels like I'm watching one of the
countless videos scattered across
the internet. It is a scene I have
witnessed before while sleeping in
the aftermath of the Grail War prelims.

It might be a scene from a past I
cannot recall. It's as if it was imprinted
upon my genes, stored away as an
unknown trauma erased from my memories.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap004.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap006.jpg

Is there an answer for this insanity?

And if there isn't one, I will need
to create one through my own
strength of will.

I have no need for memories.
I don't even really need a past.

All I need to do is keep fighting.
I hear a distant voice asking me
to wake up.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap011.jpg

…That dream just now. I can't
attach a memory or event to it, but
I'm sure it was a dream of my past.

Of that fact I have no doubt.

It's driving me insane that no
matter how hard I try, I can't
recall anything about my past.

As I can't do anything about it,
I should just let it go for now…
or until I remember something.

Evening.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap016.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: But it's more important to think about that item you received, and the magic burst that happened.

…Right.
I'll find out what that means.

Rin's probably in her usual spot.
I'll stop worrying about Rani long
enough to ask about my headache.

Well let's do the rounds.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap020.jpg

Female Student: Figuring out her Servant should be easy if I see her in action. I'll formulate a plan in my room.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap022.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg:..That would be a joke. Seriously, I'm just fed up with this whole ordeal.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: And a picnic would be really bad idea with that person roaming around. I'd rather face a bear in the woods.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: *SIGH* "Lethargic" doesn't even begin to describe how I feel…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap026.jpg

Female Student: Some are stuck with incompetent Masters, some are quite unusual. That one by the entrance is wow.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap028.jpg

Prepare for infodumping. Or Teach Me Leo-Sensei II

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap029.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap030.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: …That happened sometime last century, when humanity discovered an enormous structure un space.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: That relic from a time long past, what we call the Holy Grail, is the Moon Cell.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: However, when discovered, mankind lacked the knowledge to truly comprehend its purpose.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg. …And to be honest, I despair that mankind will never be able to truly understand the reason why it exists.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: The technology used to create the Moon Cell is far beyond the strangest imaginings of mankind.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: And although we may never come understand what it is, we do know what it's doing.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: …The Moon Cell was created to observe Earth and has done so since the dawn of mankind.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Every existence, all forms of life. Histories, ideologies…even lives have been recorded and stored.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Containing the whole of Earth's history, the Moon Cell can be seen as the world's blueprint.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Some believe it to be the Holy Grail of the Seven Heaves, a relic that holds the answers to every question.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: So you have any other questions you wish to ask?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap042.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: The materials that comprise the Holy Grail can be found on Earth. Once we knew that, it was obvious-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: …It was obvious that it'd be possible for us to replicate its function as a recorder of all.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: The first ones to discover this fact was the shadowy void known as the Atlas institute.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Not long after, the Harway family and the group Rin Tousaka represents also became aware of this fact.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: The Holy Grail was made using a giant photonics crystal, the likes of which is beyond human technology.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Photonic crystal is a mineral that can store light and is used in the manufacture of nanomachines.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg. Its processing speed and near infinite storage capacity far exceeds all other technologies.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: My family is trying to replicate the Grail, but can only make a unit less than a centimeter in size.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: The Atlas Institute has been slightly more successful, but only by a very marginal percentage.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: However the core of the Moon Cell…the Holy Grail if you will…is a much larger photonic crystal.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: The crystal in the Holy Grail is about 3000 kilometers in length and uses light as its storage medium.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: All of its high-level data control systems utilize light as well to transmit data and system commands.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: In short it is so complex that, as far as humanity is concerned, it might as well be the mind of a god.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Do you have any other questions you wish to ask?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap059.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: And once the Holy Grail's location was revealed, everyone tried to claim it as their own.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: However, those of us from the western plutocracy immediately put a stop to their machinations…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: If the Holy Grail were to fall into any hands other than the Harway's, the chaos would be devastating.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: My family has always restricted new technology as we believe that technical progress is unnecessary-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: We also stopped soak exploration to keep others from physically landing on the Holy Grail itself…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: I'm sure you see it now? The Holy Grail currently orbits the Earth s what most people know as the Moon.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: So you have any other questions you wish to ask?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Details about the Holy Grail War.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Once the western plutocracy learned this, we actively prevented the further exploration of space.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: However, there was one thing we could not stop. The intrusions of what are knows as spirit hackers.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Actually, mankind has been in contact with the Moon Cell on and off since the dawn of human history.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: It seems that humans were always able to access it through their spirits…souls if you will.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: My guess is that the human soul is the on thing the Moon Cell can't observe passively.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: While the Holy Grail can observe any tangible phenomenon, the metaphysical seems to be beyond its capabilities.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: That is hey I think the Moon Cell chose to invite humans inside of it to "come and teach it"

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: …That is how only those known as magi have been able to access the Moon Cell.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: And many do so without the sanction or guidance of the Harway family.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: This world was made by the Moon Cell in order to interact with the spirits of the magi who enter its system.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Its official name is the Serial Phantasm, but uts more commonly known as the SE.RA.PH

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: The Holy Grail War is melee for magi who have come for the Holy Grail. Its ultimate purpose is to-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: In short, is is a way to determine who is to have control of the Artifact, the Moon Cell Automaton.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg; Do you have any other questions you wish to ask?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap082.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Is that so? I shall remain here a while longer, so if you do think of any questions, please come back here.

ZZZZZZZZZ… Hmm? Did it finish already? 'K so let's move on.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap084.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: Have you been experimenting with thaumaturgy while in the Arena?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap086.jpg

Oh great another infodump. Wake me up when it ends.

I tracked them down. Collecting
the data gave me a headache,
though. I wonder why…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap088.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: …I see. I had imagined that you would suffer some poor condition, but I didn't think that would be all.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap090.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Well, to be honest, accessing those distortions puts a murderous amount of stress on the brain.

Stress…on the brain-?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Yes. The feedback generated would be enough to kill you if a magic circuit wasn't present.

Oh hey, what a nice friend. Helping you by trying to kill you.

-!
The icy grip of terror grips
my spine.

Was this all just a trap?
Have I put too much trust in
this girl…?

-Wait, that can't be right. I
accessed the distortions
yesterday and I'm still alive.

So what does this all mean?
Is she trying to make some kind
of sick joke at my expense?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap098.jpg

What in the hell-?!

Did she just say what I think
she said?!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap101.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: I think you might be the same as that homunculus girl. Both of you are anomalies, at best.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: Are you really in the dark about how you arrived here?

I don't know, I just- It's like
I can half-recall a dream that I
can't remember ever having…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg: A dream? While in a virtual world? In theory, there's no difference between this place and a dream!

So we had a dream within a quasi-dream (http://inception.davepedu.com/). 'Kay then.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch1.jpg:…Like a dream within a dream. You are truly a mystery wrapped in an enigma

With those final words,
Rin Tousaka turns and leaves.

So I' not a real magus?
And I might not even be human?

That has to be describing someone
else as there's nothing extraordinary
about me. Even without my memories,
I'm sure about that.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap110.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap111.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap112.jpg

Female Student: Servants have reasons to obey us Masters, too.

Female Student: It's disrespectful to a Servant if their Master isn't prepared. You know that?

To RANI!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap117.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap118.jpg

-Tool?
Why would she say that? I hope
she'll clarify what she said.

In answer to my unspoken plea,
Rani continues.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap121.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll4.jpg: I live only to retrieve the Holy Grail for my professor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll4.jpg: And now, I have failed, so I am a broken tool. I must disintegrate into dust-return to the cycle.

She speaks in a flat monotone, the
light gone out of her eyes.

She says that she's a tool, and
without the Holy Grail War, she
has nothing. Is nothing.

I just want to know one thing.
Did this professr of hers really
raise the person solely for the task
of retrieving the Holy Grail?

That would mean that she has never
experienced a will of her own.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap128.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll4.jpg: My professor has done everything for me, from bringing me into the world to loving and teaching me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll4.jpg: My professor wished for the Holy Grail, and I am a tool to grant my professor's wishes.

-Then, what would Rani wish for,
if she had the Holy Grail?

She's putting her life on the line
for her professor, but what about
what Rani wishes for?

I'm kind of pissed off by what I'm
gearing. I mean, if her professor
told her to go jump off a bridge,
she probably would.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap134.jpg

For the first time since the
battle, Rani scolds me, her voice
raising and her eyes narrowing.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap136.jpg

That was clearly a but different
from yesterdays's rejection.

If… If she would just open up to
me, I feel like I could help her.
I'll try coming back tomorrow.

The Elimination Battle may be over,
but I haven't truly saved her yet.

So let's go for the Trigger.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap140.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 2/snap141.jpg

And that's all for today. We got a level up (Level 20)

Next up: Homunculus Moe.

Purpose

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap000.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap001.jpg

A warm voice envelops my poor,
frazzled soul in an embrace.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap003.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: I have pondered why you give off a different vibe than the other Masters as well.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: …Are you still worried about what she said?

Yeah. That's pretty much it,

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap007.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: I do not believe many people are ever self-aware.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Can't you accept not knowing as part of your identity?

Make it part of my identity…?
What in the world-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Good day, then.

Leo left before I could come up
with a witty retort.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap016.jpg

However his Servant sends a look
back my way.

His eyes seem to be saying,
"You've been given good advice.
Don't waste it."

Though his eyes convey chivalry,
it's not without an air of pity
and condescension.

Evening

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap022.jpg

Since that is the only clue that I
have to my identity, I should do
what I can to try to understand it.

Maybe if I compare myself with the
Masters I've faced I'll learn
something about myself.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap025.jpg

I try to recall everything
I learned about Shinji.

In reality, he was the champion of
the Asian tournament and a famous
hacker. He was only eight years old.

The role assigned to him during
the preliminary round was class
clown…and my friend.

At the same time, my role was to be
his friend and sidekick of sorts.

…But is that really the truth?

Was I ever really Shinji's friend…?

I can't- I can't remember anything
else. It's as if my memory is
all clouded over.

As I try to push deeper into my
mind, it's almost as if something
is actively pushing me away.

I…I can't remember anything more.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap044.jpg

I try thinking about Dan.

He was a soldier, a magus who
could interface with the digital
world, and a knight.

He denounced underhanded methods
and respected etiquette, and he
faced me head-on.

Since I don't remember anything
from before I lost my memories,
I think of him like my father.

Even now, his back is a symbol,
his words are a guidepost.

There is no shame in regret or
losing your way, but never forsake
the path which you have chosen.

…He was right. Even though my
memory is obscured and I have yet
to find a purpose in fighting, those
words still resonate within me.

But no words can change the fact
that while I may be ready to face
the future, my past remains lost…

Or maybe…I might not even…?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap054.jpg

I try to recall everything
I learned about Alice.

She was, in a sense, an innocent
victim of all this.

A cyber ghost. A lost, lonely little
girl who couldn't go home and only
wanted someone to play with.

I wish I'd have talked with her
more- I will regret not doing so
for as long as I live.

Regardless of my memory issues,
I should've at least tried to get
to know her better.

"You're just like me"

The little girl who projected a
sense of strength despite her
desperate loneliness.

But it's too late to do anything
now. She's gone, and her blood
will forever be on my hands.

Any clues I might have learned
disappear like snowflakes melting
in the palm of my hand.

I guess I won't be able to figure
anything out after all…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap035.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Although, I have to applaud your earnest desire to rediscover your origins.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: So, no need to hurry, but- If you find your answers, you'll tell me, won't you?

Something about how she said all
that kind of irked me, but I can't
doubt her sincerity.

The fact is I want to know who I am.
I want to know where I came from.
I want to know what there is for me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap040.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Even that one girl says that for herself, the only way to know one's self is to first understand others.

Caster may be onto something.
Talking to others might give me
some insight into my true self.

For now, I should go to the nurse's
office. I want to check in on Rani,
and maybe pick up some info as well.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap066.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: I was worried about how things were going to turn out, but you won in the end! It's a victory borne out of out love!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Eh? What am I talking about? That, you silly rabbit; that.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Remember that anomalous program we stomped into corrupted data in the Arena?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: What were they called again…rare enemies? They're so delightful that we should continue to slaughter them!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap071.jpg

Female Student: I don't miss real life, but I miss the little things, you know?

Female Student: It's only for a little bit longer. Masters are disappearing. I'll win and go home.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap074.jpg

Male Student: That's why we're all here, right? Our reasons differ, but we're all here for the same thing.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap076.jpg

Female Student: Or SE.RA.PH for short.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap078.jpg

Female Student: I just know he's going to make yet another unreasonable reques, and I'll have to assist him. *Mumble*

…That doesn't sound good.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap080.jpg

Male Student: If you lose focus and get sloppy, then you can just kiss the Holy Grail goodbye.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap082.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: To calm your nerves, try thinking about exactly what kind of person your opponent is.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap084.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Yes Ma'am.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: You're my hero. I mean it! So, I decided to try my hand at cooking and whipped up a feast!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: I thought I'd made the perfect dish, but the system labeled it as a bug and moved it somewhere.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Rumor has it that my culinary tour de force is languishing in the Arena, awaiting deletion.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: If it isn't recovered today, it'll be sent to the dustbin of history! Please, you must hurry!

To homunculus moe.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap092.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap093.jpg

Rani welcomes me with barbed
words but they're spoken quietly,
with note of reservation.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll4.jpg: I have nothing to say someone who speaks poorly of my professor. …Please leave.

…ouch.

Ignoring her words of dismissal,
I speak over Rani.

I need to talk to Rani more, If I
want to draw out more of her
feelings. Plus, it helps me relax
to know what's on her mind.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap098.jpg

-It seems I am not a human being.

I tell Rani about how Rin found
out that I'm not a human being,
and that I have no idea what I
actually am.

Rani listens attentively to what
I have to say.

Unlike me, Rani at least knows
who she is. That's why it irritates
me that her professor's words
dictate her life.

When she hears that, Rani replies
in a gentle tone.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap104.jpg

When I ask to hear a little more
about her professor, Rani lights
up and words pour out.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap106.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Because I was not created with much emotional depth, carrying out my professor's wishes is my all.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap108.jpg

The same?
What does Rani mean by that?

She can't meet my gaze. After a
long silence, Rani looks into my
eyes and delivers a cruel truth.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap111.jpg

I'm too taken aback to respond.
I don't have an actual body…?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap113.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: You would have suffered damage if you had a body. I am no exception to that rule.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap115.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Only a body that doesn't exist cannot be damaged.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Perhaps you are but a string of ones and zeroes, Hooters?

-No.
Wait.
Just hang on a second.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap119.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: It just means you're disconnected from it. I heard you had issues with the prelims.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Perhaps the link to your body was cut off before the preliminaries.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: It's only natural for your memory to be hazy, as you are severed from your database-your body.

…I see. It's not that I don't
have memories, it's that I can't
retrieve them at the moment.

If that's the case, I just need to
repair the broken link…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap125.jpg

Rani will help me re-link with my
body? That's the best news I've
heard all tournament!

I impulsively grasp Rani's hand
and thank her fervently.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap128.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I'll devote my time to finding the location of your body on Earth, Hooters.

What a relief…Once I have my
body back, I'll learn everything
about myself-why I entered this
fight, what my history is, what
my life is like

Once I know those things, I will
be able to fight with pride.

Rani smiles softly, as if reading
my thoughts.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap133.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll3.jpg: I just remembered.

Remembered what?

Rani smiles at me. I think she
gets enjoyment out of seeing me
worked up like this.

She's lost her earlier hesitancy.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I'm afraid I'm a bit worn out. And so…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I apologize for my unsociable behavior earlier. May we talk again tomorrow.

She really didn't have to ask.
I nod yes.

Satisfied, Rani settles down to
sleep, sighing, "It's a promise."

I guess that was too draining of
a conversation for someone who
is currently bedridden.

I'll leave her be for now. There's
an Arena to be explored, anyway.

There we go, Homunculus moe.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap144.jpg

Male Student: I assume that your Servant's HP is fairly high at this point of the festivities.

Male Student: I'm sure it'll be useful when you want replenish a good chunk of your Servant's HP in one go.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap147.jpg

Male Student: Hmm? I mean between me and my opponent.

Male Student: I can't lose to someone who's a MANGA fan.

Male Student: By the way, which one are you a fan of?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap151.jpg

Male Student: Darn right! You and me, we're on the same wavelength. The laurel leaves of nerdom shall be ours!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap153.jpg

Male Student: Wh-what?! After I defeat that lady, you're next!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap155.jpg

Male Student: How very hipster of you.

Female Student: …My reason for being here? Does it matter? At this point, my only goal is to survive this war.

Female Student: I mean isn't the same for you? And I'm sure you have a wish that you'd like granted, right?

Well to the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap161.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap162.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap163.jpg

As always, he's spouting nonsense.
Still, I can't help asking him why
he entered the war.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Zealot.jpg: A motive? I wish to bathe the world in the light if god, as is the will of my lord.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Zealot.jpg: As I am god's sole mouthpiece, you may bow before me to be forgiven of your trespasses, little heretic.

So ridiculous. Whatever. I don't
bother opening my mouth, because
Gatou won't shut up anyway.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap168.jpg

Gatou's maniac laughter echoes in
his wake as he leaves.

Problematic as his motive is, it
actually does make sense. insane
fanaticism drives him.

As for me… I wonder if I had a
potent motive, too, before I lost
my memory.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap172.jpg

"Demonic Eye." But knowing Gatou,
there's no special meaning behind
the words.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap174.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 3/snap175.jpg

We enter the Arena. We find a Crab Omelet (!) and we level up once. (Level 21)

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: But, if that's your decision, I'll support you one hundred percent!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Ah! No… I'm not overcompensating for the fact you almost triggered a flag in the nurse's office!

@Leo:

Seriously, this time, advice fail. He got carried away.

Resolution

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap003.jpg

It's like being a satellite in
soundless orbit around a planet,
gazing at a frozen civilization.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap005.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap007.jpg

"Now, the truth hidden for long
years reveals itself! The world
has long been at a dead end.
Human efforts to circumvent it
meet an unsightly end."

I want to hear you cry out in
lamentation as broken history
cracks and is faultily mended.

I want you to blame them in loud
cries. I caress the broken surface
of the Earth with knowing eyes.

I want you so smile victoriously.
After several stumbles, we are
finally free from human war.

"But what has that produced?
Perpetuity! Eternity! Blisss!
Stagnation! Look upon the many
corpses. Listen to the anguish.
No one wishes for the future,
only for the continuation of
a mediocre happiness."

A road to a peaceful home.
A sunlit window that frames no
poverty or inequality.
Now-
I want you to answer once more.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap015.jpg

Life arose from the womb of the
ocean. The virtual world preserves
memory of life's mother.

We spread out over the earth, made
the land more bountiful and birthed
civilizations of our own.

For what purpose?

I want the answer to that question.

-I ask if there was indeed value
to millennia of prosperty.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap021.jpg

I wonder…if it was that dream
again? Rin said that humans don't
dream in the virtual world.

Dreams come from memories.
Since I'm disconnected from my
body. I shouldn't have access to
my past…

But…
These really feel like my dreams,
like something I've seen.

I wonder what it all means…

Well daily routine, go.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap026.jpg

Female Student: I mean, just look at the number of Servants it can sustain-128!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap028.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap029.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: You don't think the system labeled it a bug because I fudged the recipe a little, do you…?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: There is one more infinitesimally tiny favor I want to ask. You're okay with that, right?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Pro.jpg: Bring it on!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: I was right about you! Anyway one of the students has the nerve to call me…well…Tiger!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: I cannot abide such insolence! Bring me this student so I may exorcise the evil from his soul!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: So once again, I ask you to tell this foul miscreant to come see me immediately!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: The sooner chastisement is administered, the better. Please do this within the fourth round.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap037.jpg

Male Student: If you haven't, I'm sure you'll get a notice later. Seriously, that guy has some major issues.

2 Homunculus Moe

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap045.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap046.jpg

Although her face was still very
expressionless, I'd say it was
mostly due to shyness.

When I mimic her silence, Rani
launches into a rather carefully
considered monologue.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap049.jpg

Yeah, I want to know the depth of
my character, the strength of my
desires. Shinji, Dan, and Alice
must have had a sense of purpose,
and I want one, too.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg; I think it is not unrelated that my professor believed I could be endowed someday with a soul.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: The thought came to me yesterday, as I pondered why talking to you and talking to my professor-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap053.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg; I have noted an increase in my body temperature when I converse with you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg: Even though I am in the process of healing, this phenomenon is unrelated. I feel at ease.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap056.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap057.jpg

No other option, didn't see anything.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap058.jpg

We're both silent.

However, looking at Rani's happy
expression, I think she's pleased
to be accused of having a heart.

She closes her eyes, and repeats
the word as fervently as if it
were a mantra.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg: Professor… So this is what you meant.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg: The spring water that fills the vessel-the heart that fills me. It's so warm.

After saying that, Rani raises
her head to me a second time.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap065.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Now, I'd like to do something for you. Is there anything I can do?

She looks at me solemnly. I mean
to decline, but it seems like she
really wants to do something.

I ad a weird dream. Or actually,
it wasn't a dream. I'm not sure
how to describe it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap069.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Dreams are visual interpretations of the ordering of the brain's retrieval of random information.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: But Hooters… You are not supposed to have any access to your memories.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap072.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: …Furthermore, the contents of the dream are quite curious on an abstract level.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: A world of cognizance above the level of consciousness. Harpies take wing, but gain no purchase.

Yeah…The dream didn't drop
any clues as to who I am.

Nothing about who I am, or why I
entered the Holy Grail War.

Rani, Rin, Dan, Leo, and I fear
even Gatou, came here with
a firm goal.

They each have a wish they deeply
desire the Holy Grail to grant.

Unlike them, I'm just…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap080.jpg

Rani attempts to talk me out of
my downward spiral.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap082.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Just…the urge to say something is welling up inside me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: If only so that you will stop making such a forlorn face.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: You helped me for my own sake, not yours. That's why I wish to help you in return.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I would like to help you find out about your opponent.

What did she say?

No, wait. Even things being as
they are, it's too dangerous.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap089.jpg

Wait! But…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap091.jpg

Rani stares straight into my eyes
with her bright, sincere ones.

…Do what you want.

I can't argue against that kind
of conviction.

Her expression relaxes a bit.

Welp Type-Moon protagonist weak to love interest. Wondered where that one went.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap096.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Starting with the Servant…

I saw her in the Arena, and also
I know the information her Master
has leaked about her.

Her clothing was plain. Her skin
was very pale, and she possesses
a "Demonic Eye."

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap100.jpg

I don't want Rani to put herself
in further danger, but I'm very
grateful for her gesture.

I warn her to be careful, then I
leave the nurse's office.

Well to the Are-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap103.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap104.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap105.jpg

This can only end in tears.

Kotomine? It's rare that he
addresses anyone directly.
I wonder what he wants.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: Allow me to apologize in advance for the short notice.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: I felt that everyone was bored of simple searches, so I have set up a challenge to break the monotony.

Challenge?

What more could he possibly want
all of us to do?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap112.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: And of course every Master's task will be unique. However…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: With that said, how does a hunting competition sound to you?



http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: On day five of the prep period, you and your opponent will see who can kill the most enemies.

Kotomine senses my puzzlement,
but answers my confusion with a
dismissive shrug.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap117.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: As a reward, on the sixth day I will bestow upon the victor part of their opponent's combat data.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: So, I trust you'll find that suitable compensation for your efforts, correct?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap120.jpg

I guess I don't get a choice in
the matter.

KOTOMINE KIREI!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap122.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: But we'd better play along with that jerk, seeing as the reward is combat data. But fear not!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: My hunting skills are second to none! So my dear Master, we'll beat that clown, no sweat!

And with that triggered, everyone appears.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap125.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: Ah, a hunting competition versus your opponent, whoever kills the most enemies in two days wins.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: You must pay close attention to your enemy's movements in the Arena during this time.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap128.jpg

Female Student: Some of the Masters have annoying challenges, don't they? Good thing we don't.

Talk for yourself.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap130.jpg

Female Student: Kotomine will try to bog you down with challenges, so be alert.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap132.jpg

Female Student: And what's with the weird challenges? Giving out our info as a prize… Sleazy jerk…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap134.jpg

Male Student: There's no way I'm answering her summons without a last meal. Shark's fin would do nicely.

Male Student: Where to get some shark's fin? Rumor says there's one in the deepest part of the Arena. Look for the sharks.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap137.jpg

Male Student: I could hardly stand to look, it was so scary. Good luck…looks like you're going to need it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap139.jpg

Female Student: You risked your own life to save someone else's. How dramatic. What kind of deal did you cut?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap141.jpg

Female Student: What do I Have to do? I have to explore every inch of the Arena. The tedium is driving me insane.

Well now to the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap143.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap144.jpg

…Okay let's do this.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap145.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap146.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap147.jpg

Let's talk: Our plan.
See the most right one? That's our first target. Then the middle one, the one between the two lower ones. Those two are the ones that I am letting Gatou get. Then its a mad chase to get the three upper ones without running into him. To do that we are avoiding every enemy because they are not going to attack us 'cause their info is 4/6 analyzed. Doing that assures us that they will waste a couple of seconds, defeating them. Simple.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap148.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Focus on the enemy programs rather than wasting your strength dealing with the enemy Master.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Let's Search and Destroy, Master!

Okay time to put that plan in action. No video 'cause we are doing the same on Day 5 and that has a better thing. Instead reaction images.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap151.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day_4/snap152.jpg

Spoils offscreen: Ether Crystal, Return Crystal, Ether Fragment, 19000PPT, Pure Ether.

And that's all. We are winning 5 to 2. Day 5 is almost the same.

Wifely Survey

Evening

No plot. Caster has a yellow text though so let's see that.

Video Here.
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap001.jpg
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7On_uPpLc8)
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap002.jpg

Her strikes seem to make the air
scream. Even as her Master, her
expression…terrifies me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: *Phew* I worked up quite a sweat! It's good to use your whole body vigorously sometimes!

…Her thought patterns seem to be
shifting at the speed of light.

Why would Caster, who prides herself
on her thaumaturgy skills, suddenly
start martial arts training?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Since our opponent relies on brute strength, I thought I'd learn some hand-to-hand combat techniques.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I can't hope to survive against swords and spears just by flinging a mirror around.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen8.png: I mean, if our enemy catches me off-guard, they'd be able to beat me to a pul easily!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen8.png: Why, oh why, have I neglected training my physical attributes until now?!

This is because of those 3 points I used for defense, isn't it?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap013.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: I'm already good with those things. If I don't up my overall strength, I won't be able to fight other Servants.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: I'm just a fragile, delicate little girl, Master. So please take care of me as best as you can.

She's obviously angry at me.

…But she's right. Without her
powers, she'd be only a young girl,
perhaps even weaker than me.

I can't solely rely on her powers as
a Legendary Soul. I have to remember
that in some ways she's all too human.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen8.png: …Err…I mean…what I said just now was a joke! If you take it seriously, I'll have to as well…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen8.png: Oh, th-that's right, I almost forgot about this! I have a quick survey 'd like you to take, Master!

Let's talk on Caster's Survey.
Hidden Affection Points, don't you love them? So she asks two questions and depending on your answers you get from 0 to 2 points. You need at least 3 for her Matrix level E. Suffice to say many people get out of Caster's level E here.

We ain't gonna do that, pal.

As Caster sits in a demure pose on her
platform of desks, she takes out a
piece of paper. On it is written:

-About this round's opponent-

in suspiciously red ink.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap025.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Please take some time think before answering.

…Her "survey" consists of two parts.
The first question is:

-What are your thoughts on genocide?-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap029.jpg

Number of points this gives you = 0

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: Yes, that's exactly right!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: Even should it be necessary to survive, I'd never want an entire species to be done away with!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Huh? I mean everything on the planet not just humanity. Despite my appearance, I really like humans.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap048.jpg

Points = 1

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and just assume you were giving a neutral response.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: That's true. While every story has two sides, those who commit such an act will be punished in some way.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Without consequences, the world would descend into chaos. You have a refined sense of justice, Master.

And yet, your face doesn't look to happy Caster.

The next question is:

-Regarding all things non-human.-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: But I know I'd regret it later if I didn't take charge now. I was just using my femininely vulpine charms.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Okay that's all for now. I want to thank you for your participation.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Well then, that will be all for tonight. Fare thee well!

Caster then scurries over to the far
corner of the classroom.

There, a tent made from several bolts
of dark cloth is pitched.

Its overall form reminds me of a Shinto shrine.
With her sitting inside it, she looks a lot like a
priestess, or maybe something more…

My imagination must be in overdrive.
It's just Caster being overly
dramatic and enigmatic like always.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap062.jpg

Female Student: Well, if the Information Matrix is the reward, we're all going to do these challenges, aren't we?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap064.jpg

Male Student: Interesting. You helped her out in order to gain an ally.

Male Student: Way to play smart. You're pretty cool, dude.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap067.jpg

Female Student: That's why you can touch, smell, hear, see and taste the virtual world around you.

Female Student: It's all thanks to the incredible processing power of the SE.RA.PH.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap070.jpg

Female Student: As in… "the vast ocean of information."

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap072.jpg

Male Student: I've seen you going to the nurse's office a lot. Are you sure you're not ignoring your Servant?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap074.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: I highly recommend that you do not ever think "I am special" while you are here.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap076.jpg

Male Student: This item's awesome. Use it in battle and your Servant's HP will regenerate every turn.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap078.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap079.jpg

Female Student: Be careful that she doesn't stab you in the back. This battle has the highest of stakes.

Female Student: Don't come complaining to me when you get betrayed.

Well homunculus mow. Yeah gonna stop that after this update.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap083.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap084.jpg

I must have been lost in thought
for a while, because Rani looks
worried about me.

That reminds me, Rani said she'd
research Gatou.I hope she was
careful-she isn't healed yet.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap087.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg: There are far too many references to a Demonic Eye within the Atlas archives to narrow it down.

Sadly, my own investigation of
my opponent has not progressed.

While Rani and I are exchanging
troubled glances, I hear a noise
behind me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap092.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Zealot.jpg: Oh! I did not wish to believe it, but a clandestine tryst is being held! My god shall not allow it!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap094.jpg

I don't know what he's blathering
on about, but yeah, I wouldn't be
caught dead chanting that.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap096.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Zealot.jpg: I-Nay, my god shall end you most gloriously! If your will to fight is lacking, you shall die here!

After shouting angrily, Gatou
mumbles something akin to a
Buddhist prayer.

-He's going to fight here?!

He acts like he's not concerned
about the penalty. Or rather, like
he's not thinking at all.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 5/snap101.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Zealot.jpg: As you wish, young lady! My god will smite you!

I'll go to the Arena like Caster
said. If I don't leave, Rani will
be in danger!

ARENA GOOOOOO.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4Cmd_vv1bQ
You may notice my fear of being hit. She hits for 500~HP. I only have 1000. Do the math.

And after all of that, we leave.

Evening.

No plot again. So let's get on with this.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap000.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: Hmm… The feeling of cold, hard, cash; I can never get enough of it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: Granted, it's only virtual money, but I'm still glad to have it!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: I know you don't care. And neither does the Moon Cell, so don't expect any acknowledgment of your solvency.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: Seriously, is the Moon Cell an investment banker? It's like we'll only mean something when we're rich!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Well, enough of that! Master, it's time to go shopping! Crass consumerism for the win!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap006.jpg

…Sorry cheapskate here. Let's go see the surviving Masters.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap007.jpg

Female Student: …I'll have to fight back before my Matrix is exposed.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap009.jpg

Female Student: When your back's against the wall, you have to believe in yourself.

Female Student: Well, personally, I believe that my Servant will lead me to victory.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap012.jpg

Male Student: You can't let the calm fool you. We're killing each other tomorrow.

Male Student: It's easy to go all superficial and forget what's really going on here.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap015.jpg

Female Student: It replicates not just your looks, but how you experience the world. The SE.RA.PH's amazing, huh?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap017.jpg

Female Student: He said he's come up with another one if you liked it.

KOTOMINEEEEEE

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap019.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: Speaking with them in your private room will strengthen the bonds that tie you together.

Taiga time.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap021.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Allow me to give you this wonderful decoration to show my appreciation for all you've done!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap023.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Spare the rod and spoil the child, I say. Allow me to explain it to you for the next ten hours or so.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap026.jpg

Male Student: After this, it's all about the Elimination Battle. And I won't be holding anything back.

Okay we are here already, so let's go see Rani.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap028.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap029.jpg

Rani's eye pop open wide at the
mention of that phrase.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap032.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: My professor taught me that the True Ancestors are the very stars themselves.

Okay, but how could Gatou wield
a star? Maybe he can because of
her Blind Rage.

And more importantly…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap036.jpg

More importantly, by talking to
Rani, I've realized something
about myself.

Alone, I might be nothing.

But I have Rani and Caster.

That's why I can't lose to a
lone wolf like Gatou.

And this is when Hooters starts de-angsting.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap041.jpg

Rani smiles gently in agreement,
yet again reminding me that I'm
not alone.

That's why I cannot lose.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I knew it. It was you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: My professor's words have taken on life.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Please win. Return to me, and we will talk more.

Yes, of course.

Even if what I'm fighting is a
True Ancestor or whatever, I'm
the one who will win.

And so, I'll make the most of my
last day of the prep period, so
that I can win and be with Rani.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap050.jpg

So chapel time.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap053.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap054.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: How about you, Aoko? As both a leech and a monster, I'm sure you've met one, right?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: Don't insult me like that! I'm a highly respected person who'd never consort with-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg:-Th-That is to say…I may know one or two, but we're hardly friends…acquaintances at best.

While not the outcome I expected,
as long as I get my answers I
don't care who answers me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: Anyway, there are a myriad of vampire types knocking about.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: How do I put this…? They're living beings that adhere to a strict code…maybe?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: They may have different values, but few are "irrational" or "evil" in the way some humans are…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: In fact, vampires are far more honorable than humans in that they always repay their debts.

If she can be believed then my
opponent's Servant, despite their
behavior, is actually an
"admirable" Legendary Soul…?

Maybe. Anyway alteration.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap064.jpg

I need that defense boost.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap065.jpg

Male Student: So think long and hard before selling anything, as all transactions are final.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap067.jpg

Male Student: Huh? Why am I making such a fuss about this?

Male Student: When you've been out of reality for so long, mundane things start to become precious.

Male Student: Don't look so down in the dumps. When times get though, shoulder through with a smile.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap071.jpg

Female Student: I mean, we're already forced to do menial things like track down those dumb Triggers and stuff.

Female Student: I can't wait for my Coliseum battle tomorrow. My opponent is going to regret ever being born!

To the Are-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap074.jpg

-It's Kotomine.

That game…
I wonder if I beat my opponent?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap077.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: You. In the match of 10 versus 4, you have won. Congratulations,

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: As promised, I will disclose dome of your rival's information.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/snap080.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: The preparation period is nearly over. You'll need the rest of the time to prepare for the battle.

And he leaves. Let's check.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 6/Matrix.jpg

And so we enter the Arena. Let's go for the Trigger (we still don't have it.)

And that's that. We level twice in here. (Lvl 24)

Have Maps.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Let's squash this disgusting Master under our heels!

A little bit of column A (See the first(?) week convo on the MC being female) and a little bit of column B (Emiya is gay for the MaleMC. This is not a lie.)


Caster is Goshujin-sama-sexual of course. XP

Skipping Kotomine's intro 'cause we have seen it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 7/snap001.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: How can I put this nicely? Your battle instincts are…lacking. To be blunt, I take way too much damage.

Just as a note, she has spent most of the Arena battles untouched, this is probably a sum of every boss battle + every plot battle.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: I can take a certain amount of abuse, but it's still really scary. So please, do try to be more careful.

Well time to guess who is our opponent. In game of course.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 7/snap005.jpg

My opponent is a religious zealot…
Gatou. While his religion is pure
insanity, he has a powerful Servant.

How did Gatou refer to his Servant's
heterochromatic eyes-?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 7/snap008.jpg

The term he used was "Demonic Eye."
I have no idea what it's capable of,
but I'll find out soon enough.

I think my unease about it came more
from her intensely ominous aura then
anything else.

That should be "than" me thinks.

But, every time I've expected
something to go wrong, it has.

When I fought with his Servant in the
Arena, I recognized the terrifying
truth behind her class and identity.

Her true identity is that of-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 7/snap014.jpg

Wait didn't her identity have
something to do with fish? No, that
wasn't it. I can't flounder now

The true identity of Gatou's Servant
is that of-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 7/snap016.jpg

That's right; she is a "True Ancestor"
and the queen of the vampires, tasked
with fulfilling the will of the stars.

Her power is such that if she were
to use all of it against me, I'd be
obliterated in an instant.

But since being summoned as a
Berserker by Gatou, she seems to be
unable to use her full strength.

Of course, the most useful bit of
information came as a prize for
winning Kotomine's enemy hunt.

It was info on her battle technique.

Her ultimate technique was called-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 7/snap024.jpg

The name of her ultimate technique
is "Blut die Schwester."

I think it's German for "Oath of a Blood Sister"…
I have no idea what implications the meaning
of the phrase might have, but I'm pretty sure the
technique itself is incredibly powerful.

Although the ability is probably
significantly restricted by her
Master, Gatou.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 7/snap028.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 7/snap029.jpg

Arcueid Brunestud is almost a
celestial being in her own right.
Beating her is going to be tough.

But I have Rani on my side as well
as my Servant, Caster.

I can't be defeated.
I won't be defeated. While Gatou will
be fighting alone, I have friends
willing to fight by my side.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 7/snap033.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 7/Matrix1.jpg

Some preparations.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 4/Day 7/snap036.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Oh, no need to worry about me. Also, there aren't enough hands to go around to cover my ears…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Zealot.jpg: But I care not! Your Servant is irrelevant to me, as they are mere facet of sarva-dharma-anatman!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Zealot.jpg: And the reason for that is this! It is because I alone serve the one true god!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap006.jpg

That was the most powerful opponent
I've faced up until now. And being
asked who I was shook me a little.

However, with the support of my
Servant and Rani I have come to
realize that I can only go forward.

Even if my only reason for doing
so is that I fear death…

I have a Servant to fight for me
and a beautiful, talented girl to
help me.

For now, I need to forget about my
past and just continue forward as
a Master-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap012.jpg

Well let's go see.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap015.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap016.jpg

His cold, callous eyes radiate a
predatory gaze.

None of the other Masters tried
to intimidate me quite like this.

My skin priceless like thousands of
invisible needles have struck the
nape of my neck and my chest.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: You're not flinching. You've improved.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: That's what makes magi so special.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: They can make extreme progress in just a short period of time.

As the man walks toward me, the air
grows more oppressive with each
step until I can hardly breathe.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap024.jpg

He whispers in my ear as he passes,
close enough to touch my shoulder.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: The world- The Holy Grail will be Leo's. There will be no deviation from this course.

Unable to look, unable to breathe,
I wait for his malevolent presence
to slowly fade as he walks away.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap028.jpg

Caster's annoyance brings me back
to reality.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap030.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Don't worry about him, Master. You're way stronger and cooler than he is!

Evening.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap033.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap034.jpg

I wonder how Rani knows so much
about Julius.

After seeing the apprehensive
look on my face, Rani continues
her explanation.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap037.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: He's known to strike from the shadows to protect the scion of his family, Leo Harway.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Like a scorpion, his stinger is sharp and his poison brings about almost certain death-

Recalling that foreboding sense
of death sends a chill racing
down my spine.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap041.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Even with extensive preparation, you still may fall short of being able to face him-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Therefore, I have decided that I will help you. My health has returned, so…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask me.

An electronic chiming sounds from
my terminal.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap046.jpg

I find myself recalling Julius's
hollow, vacant stare.

My opponent…is a real assassin-

One mistake, and I might as well
cut my own throat and save him
the trouble of doing it for me.

But I can't worry about that
now; I have to go to the Arena
and find my first Trigger.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap051.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap052.jpg

Right. Let's see who is still on the game.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap053.jpg

Female Student: Your next opponent is part of the Harway can, too. Good luck us both!

Female Student: We can share tips with each other.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap056.jpg

Male Student: *Sigh* Your opponent is Kuzuki? You have my sympathy.

Male Student: That one's dangerous. There's… something minnows about him…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap059.jpg

Female Student: May the Holy Grail continue to illuminate your path through the difficult battles ahead.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap061.jpg

Female Student: Keep up the good work! The Holy Grail is within reach! May victory be yours!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap063.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: Even if it was only temporary, he was one of us. To think he'll be fighting a friend…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: I guess the description "conflicted emotions" would be best used here-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap066.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: There are only eight Masters left. To think you're one of them is truly annoying.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap068.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: …But even if that's the case, we still must be cautious.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: the feeling of death that seems to ooze out of the dismal man is almost overwhelming.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: That sort of conniving, underhanded person is the total opposite of my dear Master.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap072.jpg

Male Student: I assure you that we of the commissary will continue to support your efforts.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap074.jpg

Female Student: After this, four will be left, and then two… It'd be good to finally face you in the finals.

Chapel go.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap077.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap078.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: As you're here for the Holy Grail War, you can only access specific parts of the Moon Cell.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: It's a little different for us. We're not here for the Holy Grail, but for the Moon Cell's network.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: In exchange for access to the network, we agreed to assist the Masters competing for the Grail.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: But until someone wins the damn thing, we're stuck here the same as the rest of you.

…I see. Although not part of
the Holy Grail War, they have
been given Master status.

But what's so important to them
that they willingly chose to be
trapped inside of the Moon Cell?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Didn't I already tell you? I'm looking for someone. A friend of a friend who fell afoul of here.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: All I had to go on was "part of their mind was ensnared in the virtual world," so here I am.

Implications not good.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: As for me, I sensed a potential shift in the future and came here to make sure nothing came of it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: My detestable elder sister showed up at the same time, so we decided to set up shop here.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: Now, I'm kind of forced to stay here so that I can keep an eye on her as well.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Blue.jpg: This woman is hateful and evil, and her "research" is more Robert J. White than Marie Curie.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Smoker.jpg: Well, break time is over. I need to keep searching. You two, keep the chitchat to a minimum.

In an obvious attempt to end
further conversation Touko Aozaki
loudly clears her throat.

What's more disturbing than her
rudeness id the fact that she
never denied Aoko's accusation.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap094.jpg

Female Student: Including you, there are eight Masters left. Who knows, we might be facing each other next.

Female Student: I guess we'll just have to wait and see, huh?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap097.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Whatever. If anything happens, I'll just have to act accordingly. Now let's get going!

So we enter the arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap099.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap100.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: How strange… Keep going, Master, but be careful!

And we walk for a bit before…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap102.jpg

It's none other than Julius. But,
even though we're in the Arena,
there's no sign of his Servant.

What could this-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap105.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Bwuh? His Servant isn't here? He's got a lot of guts to walk around defenseless…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap107.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Huh…?

We are treated to the same graphic that Arcueid did when slashing the air.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap109.jpg

What just happened-?!

In the space of a second, the air
grew thick, and then I heard a thud,
as if something big hit the floor.

But there was nothing there.

But there's no mistaking that Caster
is collapsed on the floor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap114.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: It's over. Let's go.

???: …Hmm?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap117.jpg

???: No, there's no need. I've hit their heart, which is enough, but-

???: Yeah, that's enough. They're as good as dead.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: I see. Let's go, then.

Maybe it was my imagination, but
Julius barely glanced at me before
walking off.

Julius turned away from me, melting
back into the dimly lit passage like
some kind of apparition.

That voice must have belonged to
Julius's Servant. He said something
pretty ominous-

"They're as good as dead."

Caster…isn't moving.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap126.jpg

I can't think of anything but that
terrible sight.

My strong, capable Servant is lying
helpless on the floor…!

We just came out the wrong side
of a surprise attack.

…I can't believe what I'm seeing.
This can't be real. It's a dream,
right? No, I can't wake up from
this dream…it's real.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap131.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: An Assassin Servant…? But, the way he erased his presence isn't…normal…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap133.jpg

Talk about not the moment.

Caster haltingly gets up.

It's clear that she is worse for the wear.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I'm sorry…my dear Master…I've been defeated.

And she falls.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap137.jpg

Seeing that I am safe, Caster sighs
in relief and collapses again.

I have to fix my Servant as soon
as possible-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/snap141.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: I've been mostly restored, and since it seemed that you've grown as well, I…kind of let my guard down-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: …Even if it didn't always seem like it, Master,

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: I thought, in some weird sense of self-righteousness, that I could protect you by being cautious…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg:…I'm sorry. I'm sure I'lll be healed enough to fight soon… Please, don't over-exert yourself until then.

I can only imagine how much it hurts
Caster to even speak. She must really
be worried about me.

She must've foreseen Julius's
assassination attempt on me.

That must why she tried so hard to
protect me by herself, so that I
would have nothing to worry about.

Missing a "be" there.

However, the enemy Servant somehow overcame
her vigilance. Focused on protecting her Master,
Caster never thought that she'd become a target.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: I'm sorry…I'm so sorry… I- Because of my conceit, I almost lost the person I most want to serve…

…Caster has no reason to apologize for any of this.
I should've been paying attention. The responsibility
for julius's successful ambush is mine alone.

i have to do something to help Caster
recover as quickly as possible. I owe
her that much for protecting me.

It's a Nasuverse staple (to me anyway). My reading experience and pleasure would not be complete if those words did not come up in some way some where.

Also, here's an example:

"MY STAPLER," Steve proclaimed, holding a golden stapler aloft like it was an Olympic trophy, "IS ON A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT LEVEL THAN ALL OF YOUR OTHER, INFERIOR, NON GOLDEN STAPLERS."

The other office employee's stared for a brief moment before it clicked in everybody's mind that this was Crazy Steve, not Well Adjusted Steve Who Looked Exactly Like Crazy Steve But Sat In A Cubicle Across the Office From Crazy Steve. The world resumed activity and the people at the water cooler continued having polite, meaningless discussions about their soulless lives.

I'm guessing the infamous (well, for a given value thereof) "mana transfer" part of the game is also in our near future, if our Servant's taken damage and Hooters obviously can't do crap about it.

Disconnection.

That's a problem. Looking at my
Servant, the words of Julius's
invisible Servant taunt me.

-Death is inescapable.

Death.

Is Caster going to die? My strong,
wise Servant who's always defended
stupid me might really die?

As much as my hearts wants to deny
it, my brain can't.

Caster sucks in labored breaths,
but doesn't awaken.

I have to do something!

Knowing that I have to do SOMETHING
doesn't mean I know What to do!

When I rush out of the room to
collect my thoughts, I run into
a concerned-looking Rani.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap010.jpg

Oh… Hi, Rani…
Good morning…

I absentmindedly reply.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap013.jpg

Rani's worried tone jump-starts
my addled mind into processing
things again.

The first thing I notice is that
my face is stiff with worry.

Belatedly, I turn and greet Rani
with a smile.

-I'm glad to see you up and about.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap018.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Now it's you I'm worried about, Hooters. What has happened? Please tell me if you can.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg. You provided me a great service the professor said someone might someday. So, I must repay you.

Her professor? Rani talks about
this individual a lot. What kind
of things have they taught her?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap022.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: "Find someone who treasures you for more than the doll you are." For when I do…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: That is when I will have a soul.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg; That is why I have kept searching.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: And I have found that someone. You, Hooters.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: You are so unlike my professor, and yet you are the one. Yes… you are my owner.

Appropriate SFX (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqgW-2orQQg)

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: So please, let me assist you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap029.jpg

Owner?!

It seems like Rani has been looking
for a protector to take the place
of her professor.

After an involuntary and somewhat
bewildered silence, Rani goes on.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Hooters, you have made me more whole, but I am beholden first and foremost to my professor.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Up until now, I have thought my duty was to understand the lessons my professor taught me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: however, Hooters, I wish to aid you of my own free will, not for my professor. If you permit.

Of course I welcome her help. It's
reassuring to know that even in
the Holy Grail War, cooperation is
possible. I'm luckier still that
Rani is so skilled.

But being her "owner" is a little
over the top. I wonder if "friend"
will do.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap039.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: May I link your portable terminal with mine, Hooters?

I see no reason to object. I nod
my assent, and hand my portable
terminal over to Rani.

Rani chants softly, and suddenly
the terminal blinks. That must
mean it connected.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap043.jpg

Cool, now we can communicate any
time. I'm glad Rani's on my side.
She smiles when I thank her.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap045.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: But, I am still an alchemist of Atlas, and if there's anything I can help with, please ask.

Anything…

That's right! Rani may know a way
to revive Caster.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap049.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Is your Servant okay?

When I tell her my Servant is still
asleep in our private room, Rani
ruminates for a moment.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Your Servant is still asleep in your private room? Will you please show me right away?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I may know a way to revive your injured Servant.

Definitely not saying no to that.
I nod curtly and accompany Rani
to my private room.

Caster should still be asleep.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap056.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Your nerves- Your magic circuits are in disarray.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: In layman's terms, the pipe that supplies magic to your Servant has been blocked.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: A Servant thrives off their Master's magic. Without it, they cannot even sustain their body's existence.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: …Your Servant is sustaining their body on their magic alone right now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: But that source is finite. Unless their Master0s supply resumes, they will perish in a few days' time.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: -I have a grasp on the situation. I will think of something.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Please come see me again later. I will be waiting at my usual spot in the third floor hallway.

Rani leaves the room, the look on
her face solemn.

Frustration at my powerlessness
wells up every time I see Caster in
pain, but it's accompanied by the
urge for me to get help, fast.

With Rani's help this evening,
I'll form a plan of action.

Evening

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap068.jpg

We leave out classroom.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap069.jpg

!!

I twirl around to find the source
of the voice, but there's no one
there. I don't sense anyone.

But there's no mistaking that was
the voice of Julius's Servant!

In other words, the malicious
unknown man who incapacitated
Caster yesterday.

Just hearing the sound of his voice
petrifies me and makes me break
out into a cold sweat.

I try to flee, but my body rejects
the command.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap075.jpg

So, he's saying… If Julius isn't
there commanding him to, he isn't
interested in fighting me?

???: Hmm? Why such surprise? I'm not so savage to deal death when there is no need.

???: Although, I do applaud that you've learned to be more cautious after your fight with Julius.

???: He and I are kindred spirits, but I wouldn't be able to sleep at night if I killed as often as him!

The unseen Servant laughs heartily.
I get the impression he's not the
unrestrained killer Julius is.

???: Listen. I only kill one person every fight. That means just one person will unequivocally die.

???: But…it seems that your Servant still lives?

???: Take pride in that Servant, o great magus. For they evaded my fist, if only for an instant.

???: Hmph. It's a pity that I will be forced to kill an opponent I have enjoyed more than any before.

…A pity…?

Maybe Julius's Servant isn't the
mad hellhound I thought he was.

Then, maybe he'd be willing to
heal my injured Caster-

???: Stay your request. As much as I'd like to assist you, my fists bring only destruction.

???: My fists are murderous things, only able to rend the flesh and break the bones of the human body.

???: The number that survive is zero. So as you see, I am no honorable warrior, just an executioner.

???: So, you must aid your Servant with your own hands if I am to have an enjoyable fight.

???: Good day, then. I enthusiastically anticipate you and your Servant's eventual retaliation.

After those last words, the air is
suddenly less tense. Did he leave?

Anyway, right now there's no sense
in standing around and wallowing
in my own powerlessness.

So let's visit Caster.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap098.jpg

First things first, I have to get
Caster to recover, or I won't even
be able to explore the Arena.

I should ask Rani. I bet she would
know what to do.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap101.jpg

Male Student: I see, you fought with Kuzuki. It could be fatal if you don't restore your Servant's magic.

Male Student: Rani knows about stuff like that. You should go talk to her.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap104.jpg

Female Student: Nothing at the commissary can heal that extensive of damage, and we aren't allowed to help, either.

Female Student: The rules prohibit Student Council members from offering help. But… I can still wish you good luck.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap107.jpg

Female Student: His goth aura gives me the creeps. I'm 100% behind you this time.

Female Student: So, good luck. Really. I wish I could do more.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap110.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: But for now, you should concern yourself with the recovery of your Servant.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: But for now, you should concern yourself with the recovery of your Servant.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap112.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap113.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: If your Servant does not receive an infusion of magic soon, they won't be alive to see tomorrow.

Dead by tomorrow…?!

Whatever the case, what can I do
before tomorrow comes?! How can
I supply them with magic-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I have a solution that'll work, even if this is a curse that won't break until you defeat your foe.

Rani looks directly at me and
continues to speak in an almost
indifferent tone.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap119.jpg

Rani will send her-?
Is that even possible?

I don't know where to begin…
First of all, I can't even
imagine how that'll work.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap122.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: First, I'll connect to the Holy Grail while you're in the Arena and open a temporary back door.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Through it, I'l be able to send magic to your Servant. Consider me a spare fuel tank, if you must.

Is that even possible?!
More importantly, how much stress
will it put on Rani's body…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I appreciate your concern, but it's the only way, Hooters. However, if you disapprove…

If Rani doesn't have a problem
with it, who am I to object? And
it's not like I have a choice…

So, what do you need me to do?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: First, go to the Arena and put this in a place that'll be easy to hack into.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap130.jpg

As she says this, she hands me
a black cube.

And this is-?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap133.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Once you're in the Arena I will walk you through the details. For now, please go to the Arena.

I'm glad I spoke with Rani-
I'm sure everything will turn
out okay…somehow.

For now, I'd better head to the
Arena like Rani said.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap137.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap138.jpg

…So yeah suddenly I don't like you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap139.jpg

We say yes.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: You're such a kind person. And kudos for stayng positive.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: About my humble request… I would like you to track down something another student lost.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: It was a digital representation of a coin that has been in their family for countless generations.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: The item in question will be deleted in two days, so don't take too long to find it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap144.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: This isn't a lunch, but I hoe you enjoy it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap146.jpg

Another thing we are not using. Is that rare.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap147.jpg

Male Student: Using this item's ability will allow you to move rapidly throughout the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap149.jpg

Female Student: I didn't think you were up to the challenge, especially with the Harways involved. Oh well…

Female Student: I can't believe you couldn't beat him even after using your Noble Phantasm. You did use it, right?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap152.jpg

Female Student: …Come again ?! And you're still alive? That is…INCONCEIVABLE.

Female Student: I have no idea why you'd refrain from using your Servant's Noble Phantasm.

Female Student: but thinking you can always win without using the big guns seems…I don't know…delusional.

Well to the Arena. Alone. This surely won't be a bad idea.
















http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap156.jpg

I was planning on entering the
Arena alone, but Caster would
have noticed immediately.

…It's obvious that my Servant
is in no condition to fight
effectively, if at all.

However, I have no choice but to
have them join me. The fact is
that if I entered the Arena
alone, I wouldn't last a minute.

The fifth round has arrived and
Caster said that she would
fight, injuries and all.

Knowing the consequences of my
actions, I ask that you fight
alongside me anyway.

Of course, you probably expected
nothing less from one you've
fought alongside with.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Now that's the Master I know and love! And anyway, death and battle go hand in hand.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: So regardless of my condition, protecting my Master is the only thing that matters to me!

Well with that said. We enter the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap165.jpg

As I said earlier, find the weak
points in the Arena's firewall and
set up a bypass circuit.

I will guide you along, so please
listen to my transmissions.

Yeah, go ahead.

…And also, when I connect with
the Holy Grail, that means I will
link to you, Hooters.

I will have to intrude on your files
a bit, so please forgive me…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap172.jpg

Right to the Arena.

Let's Talk on Week 5 Day 2's gimmick.
So you may be thinking that this is a normal Arena trip. It isn't. We are searching for glowing spots, which only one is correct and we are not given any clue as to which is the correct one. Adding to that, Caster has all of her stats halved. Instead of throwing spells of 700~800 damage, they hit for 350~400 unguarded. She also receives 2x damage. Have I mentioned that enemies are not scaled to our level?

This day is hard.

I shall analyze it in more detail
to see if it is an appropriate place
to set a bypass circuit.

It's all you, Rani.

-She responds quickly.

…Yes, that place is suitable to
establish a bypass circuit.

I will circumvent the barrier by
channeling magic from the Holy
Grail that maintains the Arena.

I hear her whisper something-

I will conduct an unauthorized
entry fro the terminal.
Please remain still.

…We won't know until we test it
out, but it appears the bypass
circuit was successfully created.

It's all thanks to your support.
So thank you very much.

Now then, let us continue this on
the school grounds-

Julius!!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap195.jpg

???: No, not at all. I'd say they were just good enough to evade the full force of my strike.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap197.jpg

Urk-

My Servant isn't in condition to
fight properly…but we have no
choice but to defend ourselves-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap199.jpg

Yeah fighting the Servant who injured Caster with an injured Caster. Even Shirou wouldn't do something this stupid.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap201.jpg

I'm facing the harshest of all the
MAsters I've encountered so far.

He and his Servant are like a pair
of hawks who would only revel in
swooping down on their fleeting prey.

I have to prepare for the worst-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap205.jpg

Accompanying Rani's voice is a
blinding light that comes shooting
out of my terminal.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap207.jpg

My vision goes white.
All my senses are snuffed out.

The bright light forces me to clench
my eyes shut, as I give my body over
to a strong gravitational pull.

My virtual body is compressed into
a single point, and removed from
the Arena.

My consciousness condenses, like
two dimensions becoming one, and
then traveling to a far beyond-

In that strange timespace-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap213.jpg

I hear Rani's voice.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%202/snap215.jpg

Her voice wavers, as if she's so
shocked she can hardly speak.

It's Team Badass' turn now.


Caster's annoyance brings me back to reality.

Hey! Treat her properly! She's on your side, you know!?


Caster: he's a big, walking cliché!

Mmh... well, ok, he is. Kind of. And his clothes are a bit lulz-y. But he's still a badass.


The world- The Holy Grail will be Leo's. There will be no deviation from this course.

...and a bit of a sock-puppet. But still badass.


Didn't I already tell you? I'm looking for someone. A friend of a friend who fell afoul of here. All I had to go on was "part of their mind was ensnared in the virtual world," so here I am.

Ah, so that's why... that person shows up later... interesting!


…So yeah suddenly I don't like you.

Maybe it's just me, but... why is everyone so spiteful in this game?

As long as it's a Shinji, I can understand it, but...

Still dazed, I move my head some.
it appears my motor skills are
intact and my body's okay.

I'm sore all over, but I'm alive.
I sit up and open my eyes.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpgYou have been asleep ever since the imposed withdrawal.

Checking my portable terminal,
I see that a day has passed.

Rani ejected me from the Arena
when Julius attacked. I've been
in shock ever since, I guess.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap009.jpg

A silver lining in a dark cloud,
I suppose.

That's right.
About the bypass circuit…

Is it in progress?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: They bypass circuit is providing a satisfactory influx, so I should be able to supply magic.

What a relief.

It's pure luck that Rani found a
way to heal Caster just in time.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap016.jpg

…?

I wonder why? Still, I do as I
am told.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap018.jpg

Is it my imagination, or is Rani
really close by? Suddenly, there
is a soft touch against my lips.

-?
Is this another procedure that'll
supply my Servant with magic?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: It's… all right to open your eyes now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap022.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I should now be able to supply magic to your Servant directly from my own person.

That soft sensation still lingers
on my lips. When I look at Rani,
she blushes and looks away.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap025.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: All that's left is to perform the ceremony in which I will supply magic to your Servant.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I shall have that done soon, so please come back this evening.

I can't keep leaving everything
up to Rani.

If there's anything at all I can
do to help…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: …No, there is nothing you can assist with. However, I do have …a request

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Namely, I am going to perform the ceremony in the nurse's office, so please do not peek.

Don't peek? I suppose she doesn't
want any distractions.

I should do as she says and wait
until the evening.

Evening.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap036.jpg

I guess I'll go to the library and
wait around for her to contact me.

Or-
Maybe I should just head straight
for the nurse's office…?

…I would be killed if I even dared to dream about going to the library directly, so let's just get this over with.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap039.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Useless.jpg: I wonder what she's up to. I could get fired for this. How am I supposed to do my job out here?

I know that I was told to stay
out, but… I'm Caster's Master.
I can't help but be worried.

Gah! What should I do?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap043.jpg

The choice is clear. As a Master,
the welfare of my Servant should
always come first.

As I put my hand on the door,
I feel a slight shock, as if I
was plugged into a socket.

I crack the door open
and peer inside…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap047.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap048.jpg

Poor Rani.

…I can't really see anything.

What is going on in there…?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap051.jpg

As I open the door, an incredible
fragrance overwhelms my sense.

The scent is impossible to define,
but it somehow stimulates every
fiber out of my being.

All of a sudden-

What could that possibly-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap056.jpg

I see flashing lights and my body
goes numb as I sink to the floor,
my mind totally blank,

I must've set off an incredibly
powerful trap, but for an instant,
I saw a naked, slender leg-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap059.jpg

Her anger washed over me like a
wave. All I could think about was
her leg… and other-

No. Better not to dwell on that.
The next time I try to peak will
probably end up being fatal.

I guess I'll go kill time in the
Library instead.
*SIGH*

No free shows for you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap063.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap064.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: …The best way to heal a Servant? Y-you idiot, I can't speak of such things in public!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap066.jpg

Female Student: His eyes… No matter how many times I look into them, I never detect even a sliver of emotion.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap069.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap070.jpg

The source of that voice could
only be Leo.

I wonder what he wants from me…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: I have come to bid you farewell, as I hear your next opponent is my brother.

His brother-?
Is he talking about Julius?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap076.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Of course, that has nothing to do with his participation in the Holy Grail War.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: His only reason for being here is to protect the next head of the Harway family.

I wonder what he means exactly by
"bid you farewell"…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: There's no way you'll win. With that in mind, I wanted to say my farewells before your inevitable demise.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap082.jpg

Localization status: Saved thanks to that comment.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Some things can't be overcome through strength of will. My brother is simply too skilled for you to defeat.

That may be true, but even you can't
predict how our battle will end.

There are no absolutes…especially
in this world.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: …Yes, I suppose you are right. There are no guarantees, even for him. I have no arguments to offer.

Leo gives a little nod, as if in
appreciation of the limits us
mortals face.

But I don't think that nod was for
me. It was for his brother Julius.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap089.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: However, that is discussion for another time. In this case, I believe my brother will be victorious-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: But should he be defeated then, it'd obviously be a result of bad luck. Or perhaps he had no luck at all.

How can he be so pragmatic about the
possible death of his own brother?

Why wouldn't Leo wish for Julius to
claim victory…?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: No. I would never go so low as to wish for victory of any kind. That is not the way of kings.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: As heartless as this may sound, my brother's victory or defeat would be of no consequence to me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: His efforts will all be self-serving. If that effort doesn't benefit his lord, then it has no meaning.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: More to the point, his victory here will mean nothing. For I will be the sole survivor of this war.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Eventually, he will die by my hand. Why then would I wish for his success in the preceding rounds?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Although, if there is any consolation to be found, it'd be in the fact that he will have died for a purpose.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: My brother will be the foundation on which I will build my rule, from which the masses will benefit greatly.

So this is how Leo sees everything…

So these are the true thoughts of
one who has been ordained to rule
the world-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap103.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: I've been meaning to have a serious conversation with you for quite some time now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: As long as you believe that you'll survive until the end, farewells made now would be premature.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: We will probably meet again, should the chance present itself.

And just as they had when he appeared,
the sound of his footsteps managed
to convey his regal bearing.

I didn't need Leo to point out how
much more skilled Julius is at combat
than me.

However-
I have no intention of giving up.
After all, I'm not in this alone.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap110.jpg

So let's go.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap111.jpg

Female Student: Your opponent…is a lot shorter than I expected. I was surprised.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap113.jpg

Female Student: Yeah, the moon as in outer space. Home to a processor that far surpasses any on Earth.

Female Student: Don't you find that the teeniest bit romantic?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap116.jpg

Just like the terminal said, when
I reach the first floor, Rani is
waiting for me.

My Servant is behind her.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Look, Master! I'm all better now!

It's a big relief to see Caster's
smile. Since she's extra bouncy,
things must have gone well.

Rani, on the other hand, looks a
tad exhausted. Was the healing
that difficult?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap122.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: A-Anyway, There is no longer any problems with Caster's magic.

Oh good. What a relief.

The nurse's office smells sweet.
Maybe I should ask what they did
in there, for future reference.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: If you want to know what happened, Caster can inform you in detail… but…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap127.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: Oh, but I better cut the main body from the power source so higher-ups don't yell at me. *Giggle*

Main body?! Power source?! I don't
know what she means! What did they
do in there.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap130.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap131.jpg

How could I not? I'm a Master, I
care what happens to my Servant.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: It is good you feel that way, but it is lucky you weren't caught in the trap. If you had entered…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: …you could have suffered severe brain damage. The trap was meant for the enemy, not you.

…It's kind of scary how powerful
Rani is I'm glad I didn't…um,
interrupt her.

Well I ought to thank Rani. She
looks worn out.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap137.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I am a bit tired, though. I shall return to bed for the remainder of the day.

I thank Rani Rani and say farewell.

As soon as she leaves, the gravity
of our situation returns to me.
Julius's Servant is strong.

I have to be able to retaliate or
I will become digital debris.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap142.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: It's true that the Caster class's defenses are penetrated easily, so we just need to plan for it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Other Casters have planted daggers in their purses, you know.

CarnivalPhantasm6screencap.bmp

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Don't fear, Master! I'm going to kick the butt of this Servant with my magic!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: What a bold assertion from one who just crawled out of their grave.

Please, no… Not the cold rush of
death again…

By the time my senses revive
Julius has come to confront me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap149.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: You were mean to me, so now I'm going to spill your secret!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: You reverse the yin-yang spiral through a breathing technique. The "seven spouting holes of blood"?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: It is a technique that harnesses universal energy. I've heard of a keno artist like you…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap153.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap154.jpg

???: How marvelous, my opponent! With my fist I will crush you into powder, and grind you into the earth.

???: *Sigh* This joy is a cheap liquor that I drink and drink but never am sated by. Right, Julius?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: If by "Joy" you mean "bloodlust," I have no interest. Be brief about your business.

???: How about you my enemy? You must take some joy in bloodshed.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap159.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: W-well, I might have fun, but that doesn't mean I crave it! Not like with sweets…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Plus, my Master is a kindhearted person. Nothing like you!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: What were you thinking, becoming an assassin after reaching status like yours?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Jeez, I don't get it at all!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap164.jpg

???: The dark side is seductive, as any martial arts instructor knows.

???: Like a snake eating its tail, death leads to blood leads to death leads to blood.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap167.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Watch out Master! This stupid guy is going to start trouble here!

It's unavoidable. If we don't go
on the offensive, we'll die here.

We'll give it all we've got…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap171.jpg

Everyone freezes at Kotomine's
single word.

Coming from him, that single word
holds special weight.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap174.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: If you are so eager to kill each other, do it where I won't see. Otherwise, I have to stop you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Trollomine.jpg: If you chose to continue, I will be forced to slap you both with a penalty. What shall it be?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: …



Tension can be cut with a knife.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap178.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: My interest has waned. Let's go. I don't wish to be saddled with a penalty for ending this weakling.

???: …Hmph. Fair enough. I, too, wish to avoid a dull fight.

Julius leaves. His unseen Servant
follows, apparently.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap182.jpg

With that said Kotomine leaves.

Well, if nothing else…

I'm glad my Servant is back to normal.

Like Kotomine said, we can go back
to exploring the Arena.

There's no time to stand around.
I head off to the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap188.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap189.jpg

Female Student: What could she have been up to? Actually, scratch that. I think I know. Interesting…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap191.jpg

Female Student: That reminds me…I saw Kuzuki headed for the Multimedia Room with something key-like in hand.

Female Student: I think it was something like a lapel badge. We could enter the Multimedia Room with that.

So we go and visit Caster. There's no Yellow box, so nothing should come out of this.

Status of Fate = Tempted.

(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IScjK3uqtY4)Video Here.
http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap194.jpg
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IScjK3uqtY4)
The fox-tailed priestess dances around
the room. This normally dreary room
seems to be bathed in brilliant colors.

…Hold on a second.
Did she just blurt out something
incredibly important?!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap197.jpg

Wow, she even repeated herself…!
But seriously, is this really okay?

Also, I thought that when a Servant
finally revealed their true name,
it'd be a bit more…awe-inspiring.

I mean, after all of the build-up leading
to the big climax, shouldn't there be
more fanfare, explosions…something?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap201.jpg

…Yeah, subtle this isn't.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: Tamamo is a sweet, kind-hearted Legendary Soul who gleefully embraces her role as an iconoclast!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: For a girl in love, such a shameful display would be like wearing a Brazilian bikini on a first date.

With that, Ca- I mean, Tamamo-no-mae
climbs up onto a desk and strikes a
heroic pose, finger pointed at me.

Her enthusiasm is probably representative of every
Servant when they reveal their true name, but as
she's having so much fun, I figure why point that out?

It'd be…complicated…to explain
exactly why I think this.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Are you okay, Master? Everything went exactly as Tamamo thought it would.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I mean, there was no way that I could contain my feelings of gratitude towards my dear Master,

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: and I couldn't stand the impersonal formality of being called Caster even one second longer…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: But those weren't the only reasons.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I have to take our current foe seriously. And continuing to hide my name seemed like a waste of effort.

Her smile confirms my suspicions.
Now that I know her true name, I can see
her entire life unfold in my mind.

Tamamo-no-mae. The fox spirit that
was said to be the catalyst for a
rebellion within the Imperial court.

That is her true name.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap215.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: *Giggle* I'm just a harmless girl who lets others think my carefully laid plans are simple actions gone awry.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: But I am maturing just as you are, my dear Master.and am preparing to show you my trump card.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: All that's left to do now is prepare for battle. The real fight against the dark cloud of doom starts NOW!

Tamamo's enthusiasm has me so pumped
up that my hands clench into fists
of their own accord.

…She's right. Our battle with
Julius has now truly begun.

We don't have much time left, but
when we next meet, we will get the
better of him-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap222.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/Matrix1.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap226.jpg
formidable skills in these areas.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap228.jpg
rarely, if ever, uses this ability.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/Matrix2.jpg
killing stone.

Enough mushy mushy things. Arena time.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap234.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: *Chuckle* Let's see if we can make Mr. Doom and Gloom even frowner!

We explore the Arena. Then we find Julius. 3 out of 3. He is persistent, I'll give him that.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap236.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: This has gone beyond ignorance. I'll happily crush your imbecilic exuberance underfoot.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap238.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap239.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: …Yes. We would be in trouble if you couldn't handle yourself in the sixth round. Do as you please.

???: You have my thanks! Now then, young one, how about you gamble your life on that pride of yours?

???: I will make three strikes in this fight. If you can hit me within that time, you win. Decent terms, right?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap243.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap244.jpg

And so we have our usual fight. Except for this.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap245.jpg

We can't hurt him. And he counterattacks whatever input you do on the 4th action. And he hits for more HP than Caster has. That's bad.

We survive though.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap246.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: …

We managed to survive. Julius's
Servant was true to his word and
only struck back at intervals.

But I could easily imagine that if
one of those strikes made a direct
hit, it could be fatal.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap250.jpg

Caster evaded her opponent nicely,
but the uncertainty of where the
attacks would fall exhausted her.

If not for the system's limitations,
we would have been obliterated.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 3/snap253.jpg

???: I would prefer to continue in a more appropriate venue. Until then, build your strength for me.

After expressing anticipation for
our future battle, the Servant
disappears. Julius glances our
way, then follows suit.

And we leave.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: But, um, it would be nice to be able to SEE the enemy…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Tomorrow, let's cook up a plan to make the enemy Servant invisible!

Next up: There was a plot point that was not mentioned here. Don't worry, it hasn't been forgotten.

Everybody, get the hell out, Kotomine got the hell in.

Yes, even you Julius. Sorry, but there's always a bigger badass, as they say.


I mean, after all of the build-up leading to the big climax, shouldn't there be more fanfare, explosions…something?

...

You know what, hell yeah, let's go with what FeMC suggested!


The fox-tailed priestess dances around the room. This normally dreary room seems to be bathed in brilliant colors.

With that, Ca- I mean, Tamamo-no-mae climbs up onto a desk and strikes a heroic pose, finger pointed at me.

Sigh. Why aren't the graphics on par witht he description?!?! Whyyy?!?! WHHHYYYYY...


We can't hurt him. And he counterattacks whatever input you do on the 4th action. And he hits for more HP than Caster has.

Holy shit.



You know, I'm really liking Assassin (not to mention he's different from what I thought... and in better - which is better).

…huh, that's either Spanish or any other romance language. Italian perhaps? Don't think its French but eeh could be wrong.

Sagrada Familia (http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Templo_Expiatorio_de_la_Sagrada_Familia)

BTW, this is epic fail from Gatou because the Sagrada Familia doesn't have any working bells yet (its current bell sound is a recording).

Forearmed.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap002.jpg

Even with Caster recovered, just
landing an attack yesterday was
a chore and a half.

I have to find a way to penetrate
that invisibility, or this won't
even be a fight.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap005.jpg

Yikes! The terminal buzzes with
the cipher key generation notice.

…Can I crack that invisibility
before time runs out?

Being able to see my opponent is a
pretty basic requirement, I think.

I'll make it my top priority.
Maybe Rani can help me develop
a strategy.

So let's visit Caster.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap010.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen7.png: Wha-?! You maxed out the counter?!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen7.png: M- Master. you are a king of fighters! You've actually exceeded the number of perfect battles tracked!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: I'm truly impressed. Forgive the Go reference, but you're almost good enough for the tittle of Honinbo!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Here is a little memento to mark this special occasion. It's a little something I knitted in my spare time.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap015.jpg

I gratefully take the item Tamamo
had, for some mysterious reason,
tucked into her bosom.

…I've been wondering about this for a
while now, but where does Tamamo keep
all of her stuff? Could her sash actually be
a gateway to another dimension? It's even blue…

Doraemon reference?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: What an interesting observation! But some things are better left unsaid, so let a girl have her secrets, okay?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: …What I don't get is why you don't apply your intelligence to starting a romantic relationship with-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen4.jpg: When it comes to affairs of the heart…and body…you are my most formidable adversary.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap021.jpg

Female Student: *Sigh* I want a servant, too… One that's a cute boy!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap023.jpg

Female Student: After all, isn't it better to use a skill than risk defeat by using a regular attack?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap025.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Bitch3.jpg: And why must you follow me all the time? You'll never beat Julius acting like a lost little puppy.

Is that… jealousy perhaps?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap027.jpg

I guess my Servant is getting
enough magic for now, so no
problems there.

However…

My real concern is that
Caster's spell failed to even
touch Julius's Servant.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap031.jpg

I guess my disappointment is
easily read in my expression as
Rani gives me an apologetic look.

No, that's not it.
Not exactly, anyway.

Even given the chance, if I can't
see Julius's Servant, I'm pretty
much helpless at this point.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: -So he's hidden from your sight.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: If that's the case, it'd be safe to assume that your enemy's Servant is an Assassin.

I can't say for sure, but he
stays completely hidden and only
attacks from the shadows.

At the very least, not being able
to see him will make it impossible
for my Servant to attack him.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap039.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Without knowing his true identity, creating an effectivity strategy will be very difficult.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: There might be a few ways he can be hiding, such as camouflage or by means of a spell.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: However, as a Legendary Soul, he may have access to something unique and unknown.

Until we confirm which of the
three possibilities is the right
one, we can hope to do nothing.

So, for now we should concentrate
on finding out how he manages to
conceal his presence.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap045.jpg

…? Rani suddenly emerges from
her meditation with a serious
look on her face.

Her look couldn't be caused by
thoughts of Julius. I can see
pity and puzzlement in her eyes.

Is she…thinking about me…?

Did something happen?

As I start to ask her what just
happened, she takes a deep
breath and looks straight at me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: -Yes. …Err…I mean, no. It was…nothing in particular.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: There is only you. I wished to stay silent, but I feel that I shouldn't keep secrets from you.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: …This is what I've learned. Hooters, I told you before that I'd find a link to your body.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: …There is nothing on the other end of the link. You've never had memories of any kind.



For once, I understood what her
words meant the instant she
spoke them.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap057.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Not a single record of your memories prior to the Holy Grail War exists. I could find nothing.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: There is no connection to your body as you do not have a physical form. You were not born human.

-I see.
No words come to mind.
Honestly, I'm not too surprised.
I suspected as much already.

More so than for myself,
I feel more for this girl and
the kindness she's shown me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap062.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: You must've existed once and you might have been made a Master due to a glitch in the system.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: You could also be a cyber ghost, the imprint of the soul of one who had died while online.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: …In either case, your existence is…induefinable.Also, it cannot be said that you are truly alive.

While I nod in sullen
understanding, I steel myself to
ask the obvious question: Why?

Regardless of what I am, I had a
feeling this moment of
revelation would come.

I now know why my memory won't
return. Alice's "I've finally met
you" now makes sense to me.

This body, this mind…is not
human. I am just a remnant of a
real life, a packet of data.
A collection of ones and zeros.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Unfortunately, your existence is inexorably tied to the SE.RA.PH.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: …Because of this truth, if your reason for fighting was to avoid death, you must let it go now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: You no longer have to concern yourself with wounds received in battle.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I know it's hard, but if you don't accept the truth, your suffering will only be intensified.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Pardon my directness, but I must ask you this now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap077.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap078.jpg

If this is the only place where
I am allowed to live, I can't
allow it to remain as it is.

You real kids get out of my virtual lawn!

I do not want this world to be a
place where the only way to
survive is to kill.

If I win the Holy Grail War will come
to an end. I'm responsible for the deaths
of Shinji, Dan, Alice, and the zealot. The
system would not allow us to coexist.

If that is the case, if it's the system
that demands all of these senseless
deaths… The I will use the Holy Grail
to change the system itself.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap083.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: -I am surprised. But for some reason, I find myself moved.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: If that is what you desire, please allow me to help you achieve your goal.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap086.jpg

Caster speaks to me
a little more serious than usual.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I'm kind of glad that you are what you are. It's like you're one of us Servants, or that one person.

..Who?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Ah, I'm sorry! I mean, I know you're not happy about being like us, but…I mean…sorry…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen3.jpg: Gah, I almost screwed up again! ANyway, the difference between you and us is focus and experience.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen2.jpg: A-Anyway, don't give up! And if you get the Grail, you can wish all of your worries away!

She's really trying to comfort
me… at least, I think she is.
…Isn't she…?

I have no idea how to respond,
so I try to flash her a winning
smile and hope that it doesn't
come across as a sardonic smirk.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap094.jpg

Oh Rani smiling. That's rare.

…?
What was that?

It might've been nothing, but it
seemed like Rani had a really
odd expression on her face.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap097.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: A-Anyway… Do you have an answer to my question?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Even if you continue fighting, Hooters, the odds of you being rewarded like the others are low.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Knowing this, will you fight the black scorpion? Will you fight to the end as a Master?

Of course.

While I still have lingering
doubts, this is one thing that I
state with absolute confidence.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap103.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg: Hooters, I see a new star in the heavens, with you as its sole focus.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg: My journey is finally- No, that is irrelevant. I will say nothing more about it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: From here on, let us focus on your upcoming fight as warriors planning for victory.

I nod in agreement and silently
thank Rani for the compassion
she has shown me.

I'm sure she wanted to say that
running was okay, that there is
no reason to continue fighting.

But giving up would be wrong.
Now, I must win the Holy Grail
War in order to shape the future.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap110.jpg

…I like the sound of that.

Shake things up?
What is she planning to do?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Yes, shake things up. I will create three different kinds of magic kilns.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: One will react to talismans, one will react to thaumaturgy, and one will react to your enemy's chi.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: I will calculate the exact positions that each of these traps will need to be placed.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Hooters, I trust you'll be able to set these traps in such a way that your enemy will not notice?

-Got it.
And of course, I agree with what
you've suggested.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Once you're inside the Arena, I'll transmit to you more detailed instructions.

Okay we have a plan now. All I
have to do is place the traps
without Julius noticing-

Should be easy.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap119.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: merely setting passive traps is allowed according to the rules. So, I will wish you good luck.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap121.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap122.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: I'll be sure to return this to its rightful owner. Oh, and by the way…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: your wonderful teacher has another favor to ask. Care to listen?

We of course accept.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Hmm? You don't sound all that enthusiastic, but whatever.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: This time around, the Arena contains a few delicacies I have yet to try. The first being…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Lobster! I've never had lobster before! Get one for me, and you will find yourself well rewarded.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Taiga.jpg: Don't forget that I want… no… I NEED a lobster! Bring one to me during the fifth round, okay?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap131.jpg

We return to spam all our points in magic.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap134.jpg

Male Student: It'll restore a sizable chunk of your Servant's HP, making Arena exploration less hazardous.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap136.jpg

Female Student: Even with your Servant back at full health, Kuzuki isn't going to be a pushover.

Female Student: Your best bet is to plan ahead and come up with some strategies… Have you given that any thought?

Arena time.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap139.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap140.jpg

We will be placing magic kilns
throughout the Arena. That Servant is
using something to hide his presence.

So if one of these kilns can disrupt
the source of his invisibility even
a little, he should become visible.

I analyzed the map extensively and
have tried to predict the routes
the black scorpion will follow.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap144.jpg

We will be setting magic kilns in
three places along these paths.

Each kiln is set to have a different
effect, so they have to be placed
apart from each other.

We will be able to determine the exact
places to set the kilns once you start
moving through the Arena.

With that said, I wish you the best
of luck.

So she is already hacked the Arena and
mapped its layout. Her attention to
detail is truly astonishing.

I should take my time and be careful
so that all of her assistance doesn't
go to waste.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap150.jpg

This area looks promising.

This seems like a good place to set
the kiln. Let's put it here. I will
now transmit the anti-artifact kiln.
Bring it into contact with the field.

Following Rani's instructions, I put
the kiln on the ground.

It seems as if the trap code is
being encoded into the Arena.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap154.jpg

The installation of the magic kiln
is now complete.

This magic kiln should react in some
way to any equipment the Servant may
be using.

If he is using some sort of talisman
to hide his presence, this kiln will
react as he passes by it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap159.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap160.jpg

This area looks promising.

Let's put it in here. I will now compile
the kiln. Please wait a moment.

It's done. I am now transmuting the
anti-thaumaturgy kiln. Please bring
it into contact with the field.

As per Rani's instructions, I put the
anti-thaumaturgy kiln on the ground.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap165.jpg

I've received confirmation that
the magic kiln has been
successfully installed.

If that Servant is using thaumaturgy
to conceal himself, this kiln will
let us know when he passes by it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap168.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap169.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap171.jpg

Hooters, let's place the magic kiln
here. I will now send you the
anti-spirit kiln. Now please bring it
into contact with the field.

As per Rani's orders, I touch the kiln
to the ground and it begins
transferring data into the field.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week 5/Day 4/snap174.jpg

This particular magic kiln affects the
flow of the spirit through one's
meridian lines and blood vessels.

If that Servant's invisibility is
based on martial arts or some other
spiritual technique, this will react.

I doubt his martial arts skills are
so advanced as to become invisible,
but it's better to make sure.

The power produced by this particular
kiln is miniscule.

but if his technique needs
perfection, it's that perfection
which make sit fragile, in a sense.

I can only pray that my meager
assistance will bring you one step
closer to victory.

Well then, I shall see you tomorrow.

And we leave. Nothing of importance happened, except for a level up (Lvl 26).

Next up: It's a trap. But this time, we are not on the receiving end.

Hardware limitations. Also, Visual Novel style.

…I've been wondering about this for a while now, but where does Tamamo keep all of her stuff?

What an interesting observation! But some things are better left unsaid, so let a girl have her secrets, okay?

No meta for you, lol.


You must've existed once and you might have been made a Master due to a glitch in the system. You could also be a cyber ghost, the imprint of the soul of one who had died while online.

I think we should search the answer to the how/why we ended up in this situation...


I'm kind of glad that you are what you are. It's like you're one of us Servants, or that one person.

...Who?

Rank EX, lost skill, lets you summon Gilgamesh?

I still haven't given up on him appearing in Extra!


If that Servant's invisibility is based on martial arts or some other spiritual technique, this will react. I doubt his martial arts skills are so advanced as to become invisible, but it's better to make sure.

:rolleyes:

But how? I mean it's not like we have a supercomputer that has recorded every second of the Earth.

Might as well say that this is my first playthrough with Castko and I don't know who she is referring to. So we can discover that together (That means no spoiling that bit, please)

Never give up, never surrender, as long as there's life there's hope.

But yeah he doesn't appear, sorry.

Yeah... "You're a ghost in the machine!", and that's it. Everybody doesn't seem to inquire more, which would be useful to say the least...


Might as well say that this is my first playthrough with Castko and I don't know who she is referring to. So we can discover that together (That means no spoiling that bit, please)

Of course I won't! Tbh, I only glimpsed at that spoiler (years and years of refined selective reading lets me identify spoilers at lightspeed and skip them... almost) so I'm not 100% sure of it... but it would make sense. But yeah, I won't spoil it.


Never give up, never surrender, as long as there's life there's hope.

F/E CCC!! Hidden boss!!

Although he would be better as a PC. Considering this is the HGW of Spite, I'm surprised he didn't get a VIP access :3. Just imagine, him countering the other's NPs and personalities with his own.

Trap

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap001.jpg

…I have no way of knowing if the
water is pure at this point.

Even so, I can see where I need
to go from here.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap004.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap005.jpg

At Caster's question, I shake my
head. I may not know, but I'm not
paralyzed by confusion anymore.

The days of worrying about my past
are gone. From now on, I'll live
in the present.

Caster gently smiles as I explain
my heartfelt sentiments.

All right, now I'm ready to fight!
My net opponent is Julius, who's
been an obstacle from the start.

By the time I defeat him, I should
be able to accept what I am-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap011.jpg

I thought I was alone, but that
couldn't have been more wrong.

I have Rani and Caster to lean on.

I know they both want my inner
resolve to well up on its own.

Just knowing that, I feel like my
cup overflows. Although it's up to
me to make are the water's pure.

One thing they've taught me is
that I shouldn't be ashamed,
even if I'm empty now.

Evening.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap017.jpg

In order to successfully pull off
the plan I set in motion yesterday,
I need to lay low-

I should talk with Rani one last
time and then head into the Arena.

Caster talk.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap019.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen5.png: All that's left to do now is prepare for battle. The real fig against that dark cloud of doom starts NOW!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap021.jpg

Female Student: You haven't used it yet? Then, you can still contemplate the perfect situation to unleash it in.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap023.jpg

Female Student: That is an issue between Master and Servant. Talk to your Servant about using it.

Female Student: The system doesn't restrict the use of Noble Phantasms. If yours hasn't made an appearance, then…

Female Student: It's probably because your Servant doesn't want to use it.

So that "?" on the background? Let's check it.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap027.jpg

The Harway family leads a Western
European plutocracy.

It is a corporation with numerous
subsidiaries that control many
nations and has its own army.

About 30% of the world's land and
60% of the world's wealth, based
on GDP, belongs to the Harways.

The Harways distribute the world's
resources and wealth equally among
nations. That's their policy.

That policy rubs certain groups
the wrong way, and those groups
retaliate with terrorists acts.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap033.jpg

It's Leo… The next head of the
Harway family.

Maybe he can confirm some of the
things I've just learned about the
Harway family.

For instance, do they really think
equal distribution of the world's
wealth will lead to world peace?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap037.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: So long as the ruler who presides over it is perfect, the government -will- be fair and just.

What must he think of those who
reject the Harways' ideas?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap040.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Selfish, preserve individuals do reside within our hierarchy. Rin Tousaka's displeasure is founded.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: But, once I become head, I will eradicate those cancers and usher in a new era of human history.

A bold claim.

He spoke without trepidation and
without attachment to the current
era that he plans to discard.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/King.jpg: Now that I've given you a taste of my utopia, I must be off. Please, use your remaining time wisely.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap046.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Issei.jpg: you will need the power of a Noble Phantasm. In this case, restrain could mean your death.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap048.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: However, it will all be for naught if he doesn't enter theArena. For that, I have a plan-

A plan? As I look into Rani's now
serious visage, I can only wonder
what she's going to propose.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap051.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Once you are inside, I will drive the scorpion into the Arena after you.

Rani will be doing that alone?!
Without a Servant…?

That'd be incredibly dangerous.
She might be killed in the
attempt. I cannot allow her to risk
her life for such a mad plan-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap055.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: Do not worry about me. Be assured that I will make our plan succeed.

However-
None of this will matter if Rani
is murdered by Julius.

As my voice gains heat, Rani
looks away as if surprised and
embarrassed by my vehemence.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap059.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg: Even though I am but a tool to be used, Hooters, I feel…strange.. My heart feels as if-

Without thinking, I take the
flustered Rani into my arms.
She feels fragile in my embrace.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap062.jpg

Rani isn't a tool to be used.
As someone who has saved my life,
she is a precious "friend."

I've said this before, but it
needs to be said again.

That is why I'm so worried about
Rani risking her life to help me.

Even if he wasn't an opponent,
Julius is one who'd kill anyone
who stood in his way.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll2.jpg: Finally…I think I understand. This is what they mean by a…soul.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap068.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Doll1.jpg: So do not worry about me; I will not fall so easily. Concentrate on exposing the scorpion.

I can see her determination in
her eyes. I have no choice but
to match her strength.

This plan will succeed,
regardless of what may happen.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap072.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap073.jpg

Female Student: I know that he's hacked into the Arena, and has made the school his personal playground…

Female Student: He's desperate to secure a Harway win, but an arrow shot from a poor stance never hits its target.

Right, so let's get this show on the road.

- Noble Phantasm or Talisman
- MAGIC Thaumaturgy
- [Badassness Natural talent.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap076.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: After all you've done, if I can't hold up my end as your Servant I'll turn tail and run.

That's right; we've done as much
preparation as we could. Now it's
just a matter of following the plan.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap079.jpg

Now then, please wait in the area
where you placed the kilns. I will
drive the Scorpion in your direction.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap081.jpg

I'd better hurry and head to where
the kilns are set before Julius and
his Servant arrive.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap083.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: How low a homunculus of the Atlas Institute must have fallen to betray even Eltnam-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap107.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: …There's nothing particularly wrong.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: …Let's go.

-Here we are. This is the place where the
anti-artifact kiln was set. If it reacts to Julius's
Servant, it'd mean that his invisibility is a result
of a talisman such as his Noble Phantasm.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap089.jpg

As i Hide myself in the shadows and
wait for Julius to pass by, I receive
a message from Rani.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap091.jpg

I leave the rest…up to you…
Hooters…

-Rani?!

All I can hear from my terminal now
is static. She said Julius was heading
this way, but what…did Rani…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap095.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: It looks like they'll be here soon. Our turn is coming up, so let's get going!

I've got to calm down. Rani fulfilled
her promise. Now it's up to me to hold
up my end. I cannot fail now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap098.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: Is there something wrong?

???: Huh? No, I was momentarily distracted by a triviality. It's not worth even swatting a fly over.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: -I see.

-Nothing. If this one didn't react,
it means that his invisibility isn't
dependent on an item or Noble Phantasm.

- Noble Phantasm or Talisman
- MAGIC Thaumaturgy
- [Badassness Natural talent.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap103.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg; Let's go to the next trap, Master. Second time's the charm, right?

Caster's right. It'd be a total
disaster if the next trap triggered
without us being there.

We have to move quickly to the next
trap and hope that something happens-

Second kiln place go.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap107.jpg

And just like before, I hide in the
shadows and wait for Julius to arrive.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap109.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap110.jpg

???: That could be the case. So do we withdraw, Julius? Remember that even a mouse will fight when cornered.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: …No need. I'm still on edge after that skirmish with that tiresome girl. If our foe is here, I will crush them.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap113.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: Is there something wrong?

Almost as if he was aware of our plan,
Julius's Servant stopped and then
glanced in my direction-

My feet suddenly feel like they've
been nailed to the ground and my
blood seems to freeze in my veins.

???: No, it is nothing. You seem to be aching for a fight and far be it from me to dampen your enthusiasm.

Did they actually overlook us?
Or are they just toying with us before
striking a potentially fatal blow?

As they move on, my paralysis fades
away, leaving me with clenched fists
and drenched in sweat.

As I take a deep breath, I realize
that the trap didn't react in any way.

So the Servant isn't using
thaumaturgy. Only one trap remains;
hopefully this time's the charm.

- Noble Phantasm or Talisman
- MAGIC Thaumaturgy
- [Badassness Natural talent.

At any rate, I need to hurry to
where the third trap is.

Third kiln go!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap124.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: Hmph… Such irritating insolence. Do you know where they are hiding?

And then…

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap128.jpg

Heh!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap129.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: What is happening-?!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Cool.jpg: Truly amazing! Hahaha, most excellent, Julius! It seems our enemy is allied with a magus of the highest order!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap132.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Cool.jpg: As is obvious, you've overcome my Concealment! And the injury you've inflicted will take days to heal!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: This isn't the time for mirth…! Be alert for the enemy, as they must be close by!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap135.jpg

…He knows we're here! That glance
wasn't random after all. A sinister
smile forms on the Servant's lips.

In contrast, Julius's expression
remains frozen, but the terror his
presence causes courses through me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap138.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: So, what trick are you going to do next? Or should I show you my transforming routine?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap140.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Cool.jpg: Once again, I commend you on defeating my Concealment. No other opponent has managed that before now.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap142.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Cool.jpg: If I am to asphyxiate a target, I'd rather it be a lion than a rat! But still, I am doomed to do only evil!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap144.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Anyway, I think it's time that you acknowledge my Master's greatness. Then again, you aren't very smart.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Could it be that it wasn't only your muscles that were damaged, but your brain as well?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: Honestly, the thought of touching you makes my skin crawl, but the evil you've done demands punishment.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: My dear Master, shall we put an end to all of this now?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap149.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Cool.jpg: It seems that you hide your weakness behind a warrior's pose. Perhaps you are like Daji, but not as civilized?

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap151.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Vixen1.jpg: I'll burn you to cinders in the fires of yomi and cook what's left of your body in a wok over the flames!

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap153.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Cool.jpg: I cannot maintain this form for long, but I will at least bestow upon you the torment of hell itself…!

Another 3 turn battle. This time we can hit him and he hits for 500~600. It is still hard.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap155.jpg

Separated by the System, Julius's
Servant can only bellow at the
seriously winded Caster.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap157.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap158.jpg

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: The only reason why Leo deigns to notice you is the fact you are one of the masses. However-

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: I still ask, "Why?" There is something about you that truly irritates me.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Fabulous.jpg: …Never mind; I don't care. The Elimination Battle will come soon. It is there that this farce will end.

With those final words, Julius and his
Servant fade away, as if they were
swallowed by the surrounding darkness.

The pressure that seemed to crush
everything in the area fades, and my
entire being screams with exhaustion.

I take a deep breath and look over to
Caster, who is standing beside me
with a serious expression.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap165.jpg

Caster continues to mumble, seemingly
oblivious to my presence.

While trying to decipher their
muttering, my terminal begins
to chime.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/laith_rem/Week%205/Day%205/snap168.jpg

Rani sounds as if she's in some pain,
but her voice still has some of it's
characteristic warmth.

All that matters is that she's alive.

I'm so overcome with emotion at
hearing her that I grip my terminal
to keep my hands from shaking.

-Are you okay, Rani?

Yes. My injuries aren't serious and
I should be able to move on my own.
More importantly, what of the kilns?

Thanks to you, Rani, we were able to
reveal Assassin's presence with the
anti-spirit kiln you created.

With what we discovered, we should
be able to fight them.

Is that so…
I'm glad to hear that.

I will now restore full access to
the Arena. However, do not feel you
have to continue fighting today.

I apologize for leaving you, but I
need to sleep now in order to fully
recover. I will see you tomorrow.
