Hey there since the new year has just recently begun I figure what better way to start it then with a quiz on FSN? Here are 30 questions that you guys can answer! (Note I found these on the internet for a different show, I then figured hey we could use these for FSN so why not?)

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.
21. A character you would shag.
22. A character you would hug.
23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
25. Most tragic death.
26. Most disturbing scene.
27. Unpopular opinion.
28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
30. Unforgettable scene or moment.

And just so I can get a piece of the pie here are my responses to the questions: (Most of the are probably pretty obvious.)

1. Oh this is a tough one but after thinking about it I'll go with good ol Assassin (Sasaki Kojirou) his personality and whenever you get to see him is just so enjoyably awesome that for me it's had not to like him.

2. Oh this one is a lot easier for me, definitely Kotomine, mainly cause I just couldn't like his trollish attitude and the way he killed off characters. (Though what he did in the manga version wasn't helping much at all.)

3. Oh there are a bunch of these but for this particular question I'll go with the particular scene in the church with Caster: "That is impossible. Because my wish… Was being fulfilled until now."

4. Definitely the scene where Kotomine and Shirou are duking it out both in Fate and HF. Though the one where Shirou fights Archer is another up there pretty high.

5. Mostly the Bad End stuff though the fake bad end is prolly the highest up there. (Heh cyborg Shirou with machine gun arms.)

6. Again a pretty good amount of these, there is the already mentioned Caster/Kuzuki scene, a couple Illya scenes, and even the last Archer scene for the UBW route.

7. Caster/Kuzuki, Shirou/Sakura of course though Rin/Archer is alright in my book.

8. Eh Shirou/Rider or Caster/Shirou are the two main ones for me.

9. Hmm if I had to pick out of all the characters that appeared in FSN I would like to think it would be either Shinji, Issei, or Shirou but then again I could be way off on that.

10. Probably Rin's I like the simplicity of it.

11. Definitely Shinji he was pretty grinding on me but now he's one of my favorite characters for FSN mainly cause of his optimism in a situation where he stands such little chance of even winning.

12. Oh probably Rin, mainly cause she was such a big focus most of the time which started to really get annoying by the end.

13. Kuzuki his quiet search for himself has always been pretty big to me.

14. Caster, being a magic user who also had a great wish, and character were definately big for me.

15. Temple Crew, a team with so many handicaps it ain't even funny, but they definately make the best of it.

16. Probably where Kuzuki decides to fight Archer even when he's lost his reinforcement abilities from Caster, he very much so had the option of not doing so but his obligation to her in this scene definately proved to me that he cared for her.

17. HF True ending, you can see that after all their hardships Shirou and Sakura finally got the ending they deserved.

18. Where Lancer got offed by Kotomine's Command Seal, that scene was pretty sad for me especially when he then burned down the whole Castle.

19. Heh either Caster and Medea or Assassin and Sasaki.

20. Oh probably EA, you can definately tell the world bending effect and see just how poweful it really is despite not seeing in it's full form just yet.

21. If I had to pick probably Caster.

22. Sakura definitely the poor girl could surely use one.

23. Oh either Gilgamesh for most of what he says in his fight scenes or Herc in his death scene both were pretty moving though for different reasons.

24. Any scene with Caster fighting, it's cool to see her magical abilities maxed out and how strong she can really get.

25. Caster and then shortly after Kuzuki here, so tragic especially when you find out that they just wanted to survive through the war.

26. Probably When Gil ripped out Illya's heart then shoved in Shinji, that stuff's pretty creepy man.

27. Caster should have gotten more focus in the story and even possibly survived more rather then just being killed off so easily in 2 of the 3 routes.

28. Again Caster, I think she could have survived till the end, I definately would if I got the opportunity to do so, hmm though how would be the tricky part, maybe give her advice on ow to avoid the ways she got killed off in the routes and give advice on how to get past em. (Also never trust Archer.)

29. Hmm prolly Shinji, ignoring the one glaring fact of his life that's a bit unpleasant it would be interesting to see his life from his perspective for a day. I would probably go and live through his life to see how it went.

30. There are a whole ton of these but one glaring one from the top of my head is Caster's death during the Fate route or most of what you see of Caster anyway.

Bazzet's is pretty cool.

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.
Gilgamesh is baller, but I am not sure if I like Gilgamesh or Urobuchi Gen.

EMIYA should have destroyed Berserker in Fate, for greater justice.

Gilgamesh. Use half a day to kill everyone and win the Grail War, and the other half a day to entertain myself with Gilgamesh's wares.

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
Nine Bullet Revolver.
Spark Liner High.

Not sure how good an idea me trying this is, since I think F/SN works (and is intended to work) much better on the level of themes than characters, and because I certainly connect with most stories on that level.

50%
1. Your favourite character and why.
*spends a couple of minutes thinking*
Yeah, it's a bad idea. I don't really do favourite characters a lot. I suppose I could go for Herakles - his death scenes always made me like him.

50%
2. Your least favourite character and why.
Kinda ditto ... probably Shinji. There's nothing good to be said about him.

50%
3. Favourite quote or line(s).
The body dies.

But the soul remains.

Easy.

50%
4. Scene or moment that made you think.
The accumulation of the King's Memory scenes, probably. It has a little of real problems of rulership, but something about the extremes in Saber's story really makes me interested. Spent a lot of time on Mind of Steel too, though that's more of a moral than intellectual consideration.

50%
5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.
Don't really remember one ...

50%
6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
The sex scenes: they are that bloody awful.

Seriously ... I think maybe Herakles' UBW death inspired a tear. And Conclusion almost certainly did. But I don't tend to break down that far.

50%
7. Your favourite pairing(s).
Ugh, shipping.

Shirō/Ilya has interesting potential, I suppose, along with its creepiness. But really not my field.

50%
8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
Most all of them. See general reaction to shipping. Saber/Gilgamesh is probably madder than most, though.

50%
9. A character you can relate to the most.
Not sure there is one: again, I think the characters are meant to show off the themes. Lends itself to very exaggerated traits, which aren't particularly relateable. Actually, I suppose Yukika ducks that fairly well, and there are bits of me I can see in her. Let's go with that,

50%
10. Favourite Command Symbolís design.
Luvia's.

50%
11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.
Shirō. Sorta. Sometimes.
Rider might qualify too.

50%
12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.
Zōken, maybe. He actually had a fairly decent 'nice grandpa' act. That said, I still like his character, just wouldn't want to make his acquaintance.

50%
13. Favourite Master.
Meh. Rin?

50%
14. Favourite Servant.
Herakles, I guess.

50%
15. Favourite team.
Bit firmer here. Ilya and Herakles' dynamic is a really good one.

50%
16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.
None. Sheesh, you lot get dramatic, don't you?

50%
17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.
I'm know there were ones, but they haven't stuck.

50%
18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.
Forgetting Saber Alter in HF.

50%
19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
Saber, because I might survive that way. And, assuming I get the circuits to vaguely support him, Herakles. Seems like a decent combination.

50%
20. Favourite Noble Phantasm?
Rho Aias. Because Aias.

50%
21. A character you would shag.
Shirō's got the looks, but sounds like a really awful lover (how the girls get off with him, I don't know). Rin kinda ditto. Issei or Ayako?

50%
22. A character you would hug.
Saber is huggable. Also Rider.

50%
23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
Kirei's introduction is an obvious one. Junichi Suwabe had some good moments too. The whole imi no nai rant was powerful.

50%
24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
Conclusion. Because it works.

50%
25. Most tragic death.
Shirō in Happy End. That was a total gyp.

More seriously ... Herakles and Ilya together in UBW. On the one hand, all the greatness of Herakles resurrecting and breaking Enkidu to save her, and Ilya comforting him. But Gil still got both of them, despite that.

50%
26. Most disturbing scene.
Plenty. But discovering the orphans beneath the Church was particularly nasty.

50%
27. Unpopular opinion.
People really dislike my going on about Shirō's sexism. Also, Gen should never have wanked Lancelot like that.

50%
28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
'Make any single-character-focused AU you want'? Kirei becomes fated to summon Artoria. Through her example and convictions, he becomes convinced that he should be prepared to throw away any chance at pleasure for the greater good, devoting himself to a self-sacrificial way of saving people. Mostly because it'd be great to see it develop, but also because that kind of tension in a personality seems interesting. And because Kirei's voice on a truly 'good' character would be neat.

50%
29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
Ilya might be neat: wish attribute plus wealth, even it was only for a day. I'd really rather not change places with anyone likely to be in mortal peril, mind ...

50%
30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
Conclusion. Again.

Personally, I'd prefer to see this quiz more like "Nasuverse as a whole" rather than just Fate. And mine includes Zero stuff.

1. Your favourite character and why.
Saber, probably. I'm boring like that.

2. Your least favourite character and why.
The easy answer for me is Zouken, but it has less to do with him being a bad character so much as I just would not want to meet him in real life. Or believe that someone that twisted actually could exist, even though I'm sure there are as bad or worse out there.

3. Favourite quote or line(s).
You're getting in the way of that.
--Get lost.
Sakura can't smile if you exist--!

4. Scene or moment that made you think.
See Seika's answer.

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.
"I'm surprised, you're pretty agile. I thought you said you had flab."

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
I cried pretty much once a route. But

You said an older brother protects his younger sister, right?
…Yeah. I'm the older sister. So I have to protect my younger brother.

pretty much takes the cake.

7. Your favourite pairing(s).
I like all three heroines and their romances pretty evenly. For non-canon stuff, uh...I guess I rather like Lancer/Rin.

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
Saber/Gil. Too rape-y to me. Also reeks of bad boy-upright girl shoujo manga pairings.

9. A character you can relate to the most.
Bleharng. No clue. Waver, maybe? I kind of have his complex when it comes to how my older siblings treat me.

10. Favourite Command Symbol’s design.
Probably Kariya's.

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.
Ryuunosuke. Might have something to do with Akira Ishida's delivery of "Cool."

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.
Kojirou. Not because of anything that has to do with his character or fanbase. Because trying to write his poetical, lyrical talk is annoying as fuck.

13. Favourite Master.
Kotomine. I find it kind of hilarious how much of a bastard he is to 100 Faced and Lancer.

14. Favourite Servant.
Kojirou, for the exact reasons that I hate writing him. Also, the only Servant that makes other Servants pause and really go "Wtf are you man?"

15. Favourite team.
I would say Shirou and Saber if it weren't so lopsided for the majority of the game. Really, though, I'd probably go with Kuzuki and Caster on this.

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.
"…Heehee. But it's a bit vexing. I wish you'd said it a bit sooner. If you had… fate might've taken a different turn."

17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.
The knight keeps watching over her figure.
The king that he wished for.
A lonely king that was seen off by just one knight.
But--her face is what he wished for.
A peaceful sleep.
In her last moments, the king has obtained peace that she has never been able to obtain.
He was just happy about that fact.
The knight thanks the someone who has given her peace and proudly watches over his king.

18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.
It's spring again.

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
Of the FSN proper cast, I'd be cool with Lancer.

Go broader, I'd also be cool with Mordred. I mean, I'll fix your daddy issues! I'll acknowledge you! Now bend over.

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.
UBW, if UBW were actually a Noble Phantasm. Or I hope my body can take it Nine Lives.

21. A character you would shag.
If it is female, I am probably okay with it. If it's male, well...maybe, just to say I had.

22. A character you would hug.
Sakura, probably. Illya comes close.

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
I can't tell you how close to orgasm I was when watching F/Z ep 15 and hearing Ayako Kawasumi on huge speakers and a huge screen giving us beamu.

24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
The dual-evocation of Avalon in Fate. It's also the reason why I really don't quite like Last Episode's very end, but very much like the narrative buildup to it. Something about striving for impossibility is always going to get to me.

25. Most tragic death.
Did I mention the bit in HF with Illya? I have? Well, I'm doing it again.

26. Most disturbing scene.
Bad End 40. I get reeeeeaaaaaally creeped out at that.

27. Unpopular opinion.
Apparently, people think I write about Shirou somehow becoming a true Heroic Spirit or something. I'm doing something wrong, because that's not right at all.

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
I agree with food. EMIYA should've killed Berserker in Fate, for great JUSTICE.

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
There's this joke I have, about Shirou appearing before the pearly gates asking to be admitted because he's banged King Arthur, his school idol, his girl next door figure, the girl next door's tall older sister type, the captain of the archery club, three members of the track team, a homunculus and her maids, and a young teacher that looks after him. Shirou would never do that. But I would.

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
I always try to push people to play FSN without watching the anime or whatever, and want to be there when they reach Sword of Promised Victory. Because that moment is when FSN as a whole goes from being kinda neat to being WTFISTHISINEEDMOAR.

What does "unpopular opinion" mean?

An opinion you have in the fandom that is unpopular. Seems pretty straightforward to me.

Seika
January 4th, 2013, 06:36 AM
What does "unpopular opinion" mean?
Just something you think that runs counter to the general opinion. So I think what Gen did with Lancelot was basically a bit crap and support the surface interpretation of Shirō's dialogue towards Saber (namely that he's sexist). food thinks the female characters are rubbish. Et cetera.


Blame Evangeline.
I'd rather blame you.

Archetype EMIYA
January 4th, 2013, 06:43 AM
1. My favorite character... I'd say Ryougi Shiki.
2. Least favorite character... A short and relevant list: Nero, Nrvnqsr Chaos, Mordred, Araya Souren, Kotomine Kirei, Michael Roa Valdamjong (or however you romanize that). I can bring myself to hate Semiramis too, depending on who she is.
3. Favorite quote(s): "...what you should always be imagining is you at your most powerful.", and "If you cannot defeat your enemy with the weapon you do have, then imagine one with which you could."
4. Scene/moment that made me think: Well, the entirety of the Nasuverse is something I enjoy unraveling.
5. Scene/moment that made me laugh: All of the sex scenes. ALL of them. So awkward.
6. Scene/moment that made me cry: Honestly, in hindsight... I'll be honest, as a mindless fan I despaired at Arcueid and Shiki parting like that. But I don't ship them anymore.
7. Favorite pairing: For the record, I ship Ryougi Shiki and Tohno Shiki. Even though it's not technically canon.
8. Least favorite pairing: Er... Let's just go with Ciel/Shiki.
9. The character I relate to the most: Archer.
10. Favorite Command Spell design: Well, if we're talking about the ones in the Nasuverse, then... Saber's theoretical Command Spells if she were a Master. Alternatively, the 1st degree Master's, the Seraphim.
11. A character I disliked at first but grew to like later: Altrouge Brunestud. I had no idea...
12. A character I liked at first but grew to dislike: Nero. GREATLY.
13. Favorite Master: Shirou.
14. Favorite Servant: Saber. Alternatively, Jeanne.
15. Favorite Team: Rin/Archer.
16. Scene/moment that broke my heart: My heart doesn't break that easily. Though if you count "revulsion" I guess I could say the part in Fate/Zero ep1 where you see Sakura in the pit of worms.
17. Scene/moment that made me happy: The look on Jeanne's face as she sees herself in Fate/Zero.
18. Scene/moment that made me feel sad: I don't do "sad".
19. Class and Heroic Spirit I want: Seiba, Seiba.
20. Favorite Noble Phantasm: Avalon, hands down.
21. Character I would shag: *blush* Er... That's a secret.
22. Character I would hug: Jeanne. Especially when she's burning.
23. Voice actor that made an impression on me: Sakamoto Maaya. The part where she threatens death to everything, even god, as Ryougi Shiki. That was awesome.
24. Favorite scene, and why: Lancer kills Kotomine. Fuck yeah. Bastard totally deserves it.
25. Most tragic death: In the Nasuverse? Hm... The hypothetical situation (and let's keep it that way, shall we?) of Tohno Shiki's death.
26. Most disturbing scene: ALL the sex scenes, plus any scene involving penis worms.
27. Unpopular opinion: Saber-class Servants aren't just what they look like.
28. Change fate of any character, would I? How?: That's classified information.
29. Trade places with a character: Archer. First, learn how he Traces and uses Unlimited Blade Works and then apply that to my own style.
30. Unforgettable scene/moment: It's not in canon yet, that's all I'm saying for now.

Hey, something I can do to pass the time for a bit!

1. Your favorite character and why.

Kirei! Because I find him incredibly amusing, and also, that voice. It somehow manages to make the walls of text not awful.

2. Your least favourite character and why.

Kind of hard. I don't really dislike any of the characters all that much. Shinji, I guess? Zouken would make more sense, but he never really managed to make me feel anything. I guess he kind of felt more like a generic evil stage piece to me, and not enough like a real character.

3. Favourite quote or line(s).

"If you walk down the path that you believe is right, you cannot be wrong."

This line always stuck with me for some reason.

4. Scene or moment that made you think.

The very first death scene in the game. I intentionally picked it just to see what would happen, and was surprised with how brutal it was. Made me take things more seriously after that.

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.

Most of Issei's scenes.

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.

Yeah, I don't think the game ever got that much emotional investment from me. The thing that made me the saddest would probably be the "you're strong, Berserker" section.

7. Your favourite pairing(s).

Shirou/Rin for their interactions, Shirou/Saber for most compatible.

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).

Gil/Saber, easily. No matter how much fanart there is of it, I just don't see it.

9. A character you can relate to the most.

None of them, really. Given the characters, I'd be kind of worried if I could relate to any of them. Maybe Rin, I suppose.

10. Favourite Command Symbolís design.

Definitely Kirei's.

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.

Saber. Started off finding her annoying, but I grew to like her more and more. She isn't one of my favorite characters or anything, but she's at least a step above most of them. Also Ilya. First death scene freaked me out. Got better from there.

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.

Gil. I actually kind of liked him in Fate, especially with his parting line. Afterwards, not so much.

13. Favourite Master.

Rin.

14. Favourite Servant.

Seibah.

15. Favourite team.

Shirou/Sabre.

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.

Wouldn't this probably just be the same as 6?

17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.

Most of the comedy sections with Seibuh, and also most of Shirou's interactions with Rin.

18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.

And now for something different! Sparks Liner High.

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.

I'll take Seiba, for maximum power, naturally. I feel like Rider wouldn't be too bad as an alternate.

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.

Gotta be the Gate. Epic asshole that he is, the dude has some awesome stuff.

21. A character you would shag.

I feel like this question shouldn't be odd, since it's an eroge, and yet, I never saw any of the characters like that. I skipped past all the sex scenes, maybe that's why. Rider, I supposed.

22. A character you would hug.

Sakura seems the most huggable.

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?

Gil's last line in Fate. I felt like that was just an awesome line, with great delivery. Don't know his voice actor, I'm afraid.

24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.

This one is also going to be Sparks Liner High.

25. Most tragic death.

Some of the Dead Ends seem like they should be here, but Ilya getting her heart stolen by Gilgamesh really trumps it.

26. Most disturbing scene.

Some of the sex scenes. Seriously. Also, worms. The fuck.

27. Unpopular opinion.

Tsuki is better!

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?

I'd have Sakura never be given to Zouken, so she can live a relatively happy life with Rin. This way, Heaven's Feel can be all about Ilya, and Sakura can stay in her sisterly, minor role, for which she seems better suited, in my honest opinion.

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).

Why would I want to be anyone in the Nasuverse? No way, man. I like my comfortable life just fine.

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.

Sparks! Liner! High! Possibly also Saber's last farewell in Fate. Ignoring Last Episode (YOU RUINED THE MOMENT, MAN!)

Wait, this is only for F/SN? Fuck that shit, I'mma do what I want.

http://www.gifsforum.com/images/gif/haters%20gonna%20hate/grand/Arthur-Haters-Gonna-Hate.gif

1. Your favourite character and why.
Avenger. Obviously. Oh, and Hanepin.

2. Your least favourite character and why.
Sakura. Somebody had to pick her, right?

3. Favourite quote or line(s).

------- Welcome back.
This time, it is for real.
As if fulfilling that childhood promise at last.

4. Scene or moment that made you think.
Heaven's Feel Backnight 2, when Avenger is talking to Bazett about "living correctly".

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.

"I'm just thinking of it like lancing a boil."

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
Akiha's True Ending. 'Nuff said.

7. Your favourite pairing(s).
Avenger X Caren, Shiki X Kohaku, Shirou X Luvia.

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
Archer X Rin.

9. A character you can relate to the most.
Probably Tsukihime Souka. Her attitude to things, at least.

10. Favourite Command Symbol’s design.
Caster's, because it resembles a laughing duck.

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.
Gilgamesh. How could I not love such egocentric ball of fun?

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.
Roa. I mean, he seemed like such a cool character. Then he opened his mouth...

13. Favourite Master.
Surprisingly, Rani. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that she has no underpants.

14. Favourite Servant.
Nero. I am obliged to. After all, she is a magnificent artist. And yeah, Avenger too.

15. Favourite team.
Avenger and Bazett. The banter between them is the best in the franchise.

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.

"Shiki-san, you are too kind. But please don't worry about it. I'm just a doll, so I don't feel pain or fear."
17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.
Nanako-chan, SOS! That damn horse is a perfect foil for Arihiko.

18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.
That little talk over coffee between Shiki and SHIKI. Because it made them feel like they had been such bros, and we just couldn't see any of those parts.

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
Saber would seem like a pretty solid choice. And for that, Nero, of course.

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.
Verg Avesta. Wait, what?

21. A character you would shag.
Luvia or Riesbyfe. Both are fine.

22. A character you would hug.
White Len, just to piss her off.

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
Midorikawa Hikaru, doing Diarmuid's death-rage. Sheez, that yell was pretty nice.

24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
That moment when Nero confesses her love to the Extra protagonist, and teary-eyed promises that she will become good enough for his/her affection. Because goddammit, it's too adorable.

25. Most tragic death.
Iskander. The anime really sold that moment for me.

26. Most disturbing scene.
In Ataraxia, when the picture of Issei in a drag suddenly pops on to the screen.

27. Unpopular opinion.
That Avenger could totally beat Shiki in a fight - 3-

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
I would get poor ol' Abe-san into the real world and give him his second life. The guy deserves. And, I dunno the "how". Zelretch?

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
Probably with Shiki. Depending on the circumstances, I would either spend the whole day pampering Akiha, or getting jiggy with Kohaku. And solely because it never happens in the visual novel.

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
When Shiki kills Arcueid for the first time. The music is the sole reason for that.

"There is no need to talk about the obvious outcome. Emyia Shirou will turn his mind to steel, and become a superhero."

4. Scene or moment that made you think.
MOS ending and HF normal.

"You can't have Tohsaka" Floored me.

Depends on my mood If I feel like watching SUFFERING SaberXgilgamesh is quite fun. If I don't feel like watching SUFFERING ShirouXRin

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
BerserkerXanyone, SaberXshirou, SaberXgilgamesh played romantically.

9. A character you can relate to the most.
Oddly enough Kotomine, I know what it feels like to try to bury a part of your self as deep as possible and how royally bad it sucks in the long term.


10. Favourite Command Symbol’s design.

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.

Heavens feel normal.

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
Would depend on the time I have left before the war. If I had almost no time at all saber is a great choice. If I had time and had to win for sure then archer to grab Gilgamesh. Preferably with some firearms and prepared methods for maximum trolling so I don't die before the war is up.
20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.
Enkidu

21. A character you would shag.

Yep, I would love to see Caster live longer then caster did preferably though the entire war.

1. Your favourite character and why.
Tied between Archer and Fake Assassin. Mostly due to their calm nature and skills.

2. Your least favourite character and why.
Shinji Matou. One word: rapist.

3. Favourite quote or line(s).
"It will be regrettable, but you will die here, Gilgamesh". Less then 10% power, and still have the balls to threaten Gilgamesh.

4. Scene or moment that made you think.
Probably... Mind of Steel. I wonder... would he end up like Archer, always alone on that hill, forever regretting his choices? Or would he be like his father, seeing everything he cared about destroyed because of his ideals?

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.
"Rin-sama embarrassed". It was too funny.

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
"I'll forget about you" and HF True End. Goddamn it, why?!

7. Your favourite pairing(s).
ShirouxSaber, Last Episode.
ArcherxRin. I'm blaming Elf for this.
ShirouxAyako. This time, the blame's on Names.

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
ShinjixSakura. Let just say that I once ran into it. No more.

9. A character you can relate to the most.
Probably none.

10. Favourite Command Symbolís design.
Tied between Shirou's and Bazett's.

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.
Kirei. A bastard he may be, but when I found out that he empty inside, I can't help but feel sorry for him.

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.
Sakura. I kinda like her at first, but ... after a while, it just doesn't stick. I mean, sure, she have a tragic past, but there's nothing about her that appeals to me.

13. Favourite Master.
None.

14. Favourite Servant.
Berserker. If it weren't for his class, he would have been so hax.

15. Favourite team.
Bazett and Lancer.

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.
HF True End, Illya's death. She deserved better damn it!

17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.
Last Episode. Finally, after years of waiting, Saber and Shirou finally reunited, and both of them don't have to worry about their duty anymore.

18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.
. Watching as Shirou slowly becoming a machine is rather ... unsettling,

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
Well, I don't really have preferences, so whatever works. As for Heroic Spirit... probably someone from my country, if it's possible.

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.
Ea. Cool design (for me anyway), and absurdly hax.

21. A character you would shag.
Rider, Ayako, Himuro.

22. A character you would hug.
Illya.

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
Joji Nakata, first time that we see Kirei in the Church. It gave me chills.

24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
The duel between Shirou and Archer. A clash between the young, optimistic and naive present and the weary, stoic and cynic future. A fight that, for me, define the paradox nature of Shirou's ideals: Win or lose, one of them will feel happy, while the other would not. Even if Archer accept that his ideals wasn't wrong, there's just too many regrets for him to completely accept it again.

25. Most tragic death.
Illya. Both UBW and HF.

26. Most disturbing scene.
Kirei's basement. Ugh. After watching that, I have nightmares about it for days.

27. Unpopular opinion.
Not sure about this, but I think that there should be a scene showing how all of this looked like from some mundane who accidentaly got caught in it. Like Ayako, for example.

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
Probably ... Bazett. By trying to warn her of Kirei's nature or his little basement.

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
No way. I am not stepping foot in that world. Sure it's got it benefit, but I values my life thank you very much.

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
Last Episode.

January 4th, 2013, 07:41 AM
1. Your favourite character and why.

Hmmm. I'd have to go with Archer on this one.

2. Your least favourite character and why.

Probably Shinji or Zouken. Can't really choose between them, but I wouldn't really want to meet either of them.

3. Favourite quote or line(s).

"—I won't lose to you. I don't mind losing to somebody else.
But I can't lose against myself!"

4. Scene or moment that made you think.

I had a lot of thoughtful moments throughout HF, but the good ending takes the cake.

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.

Hmmm. There were many times, probably at times when laughter wasn't appropriate, but I have to say I found the whole daytime date with Rin and Saber to be pretty funny.

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.

Illya singing or her last moments in UBW.

7. Your favourite pairing(s).

:S Out of the main ones...Rin/Shirou, I guess.

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).

Shirou/Sakura - The only downside to HF, for me.

9. A character you can relate to the most.

Rin, I guess. But I think maybe just the whole "Tohsaka Curse" with screwing up at the crucial moments.

10. Favourite Command Symbol’s design.

I like Rin's, but I sort of like Tokiomi's a bit better.

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.

Definitely Shirou. I guess when you spend three routes in his head you start to at least like him a bit, haha.

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.

Sakura. Oh boy. I mean, I like her when she's evil as fuck, but normal Sakura just doesn't do it for me.

13. Favourite Master.

Kotomine.

14. Favourite Servant.

Archer, again.

15. Favourite team.

Rin/Archer. Always loved their dynamic for whatever reason.

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.

I still get sad thinking about Illya's deaths in both the end of HF and in UBW.

17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.

I really digged the true ending of UBW.

18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.

Uhhh still those two Illya moments!

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.

Serious answer: Saber because as people have said, probably the best chance at winning. Not-so-serious answer: Assassin, because Assassin.

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.

UBW is pretty great, although not technically a NP. I think I only like Archer for all of his crazy shit like the Aius.

21. A character you would shag.

Mmmm. Rider, maybe? Rin. Can't go wrong with those stockings.

22. A character you would hug.

Illya.

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?

I always remember thinking that during Sisters(VII?) where Sakura is venting to Rin, that Sakura's VA did a pretty damn good job, I really felt it.

24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.

"I am the bone of my sword.
Steel is my body, and fire is my blood.
I have created over a thousand blades,
Unknown to death,
Nor known to life.
Have withstood pain to create many weapons.
Yet those hands will never hold anything.
So, as I pray - Unlimited Blade Works!"

Pretty epic still, least for me!

25. Most tragic death.

Illya in UBW.

26. Most disturbing scene.

I think the visual image I got during the scene where Zouken eats the random girl to sustain himself scarred me a bit.

27. Unpopular opinion.

I'm not entirely a huge fan of Saber in Stay Night, she's way more compelling in Zero.

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?

I would love to have seen Caster get a more prominent role in Fate and HF. I never felt like we saw the true extent of what can do.

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).

Gotta be one of the three chefs in the Emiya residence. I can't cook for shit so it'd be nice to be able to make something edible for once.
30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
Last Episode, Shirou Vs. Gil, uhh.
Oh.
"I'm here, Caster. I thought about it thoroughly, but I've decided to have you eliminated.
You're an eyesore, you get in my way, you annoy me, and I hate the way you look. You're like some backwoods hag with that purple robe of yours."

Following Verg's example here.


Wait, this is only for F/SN? Fuck that shit, I'mma do what I want.

1. Your favourite character and why.

Hassan. Almost solely for his design. I saw a CG of him before HF was translated and pretty much fell in love with his anorexic body, his spider limbs, and his mask.

2. Your least favourite character and why.

Kariya. Orphaned Rin, was a delusional faggot, had no personality outside of "nice guy who wants to kill Tokiomi and fuck Aoi," and was the Master of Lancelot, who people think can beat Kojirou.

3. Favourite quote or line(s).

"I'll show you what it means to kill something."

4. Scene or moment that made you think.

When Shiki explained to Roa what it's like to see death. Before then I thought the ability was super cool, but then it kind of dawned on me how horrific it would be to have the MEoDP.

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.

When Arcueid asked Shiki if he knew about Christianity.

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.

None.

7. Your favourite pairing(s).

I don't ship, I think it's retarded. If I'm going to see two people together I only care that it's pretty person + pretty person, so pretty much Gilgamesh/*

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).

Kariya/Life

9. A character you can relate to the most.

Berserker. I often heft around a mighty rock axesword made from a temple dedicated to me and roar at people while shirtless.

10. Favourite Command Symbol’s design.

EXTRA design.

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.

Tohno Shiki

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.

There is nobody I particularly grew to dislike. I guess the closest would be Saber, who my opinion of has dropped as more blatant clones of her are put into spinoff Fate series.

13. Favourite Master.

Kotomine Kirei.

14. Favourite Servant.

True Assassin.

15. Favourite team.

Mech Hisui/Neco Arc

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.

My heart is too strong to break, at most it gets bruised and dented. The one scene to do this to a degree where I had to pause reading for a moment was the Tsukihime diary scene.

"HELP ME"

17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.

Every action scene in KnK.

18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.

The end of Roastbeef's serious arcade route.

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.

Assassin Li Shuwen. Since I'm not a magus I wouldn't be able to provide prana, so I'd need a Servant who's okay with murdering innocents to sustain himself. He's also prana efficient, so he wouldn't be starving for prana all day erry day. Obviously, since I'm not capable of anything combatwise against a real Master, I'd be entirely reliant on sneak attacks, so he's pretty much ideal for that. He's also a pretty cool guy.

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.

Kazikli Bey

21. A character you would shag.

Most of them.

22. A character you would hug.

Sakura, Kohaku.

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?

Yuzuki Ryouka. I find it impressive that she voices regular Arcueid, Warcueid, Neco Arc, and Archetype Earth while managing to make each one sound like a different person.

24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.



"Secret techniquehttp://fsn.seorinwastaken.com/line5.png"
Saber charges in.
The longsword is useless now.
As long as she's inside its range, its length will backfire.
But.

"http://fsn.seorinwastaken.com/line4.pngTsubame-Gaeshi"
Such logic does not exist with this swordsman.

25. Most tragic death.

Gilgamesh in HF. His death deprived of us of any possible future Gilgamesh fight scenes. A great tragedy.

26. Most disturbing scene.

"HELP ME"

27. Unpopular opinion.

My favorite character is better than your favorite character.

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?

Perhaps I would simply make the small change to Roa's reincarnation that doing so does not slowly drive him insane. Perhaps then he might realize the meaning behind his obsession with Arcueid.

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).

Tohno Shiki during Hisui's route, specifically during a day when he's going insane. Wouldn't it be interesting to experience that kind of mental meltdown?

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.

When KnK surprisingly had a happy end.

Yes, this lacks Tsukihime/KnK/whatever options. Pah. Amateurs.

Touko.
Aoko.

Illya.
There's just something about her that makes me want to choke her to death less than fifteen minutes into the game.

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
Rin's, in the UBW movie where she gets slammed into the wall by Kuzuki. That scream really impressed me.
Others: Shinji. For being able to sound like a really dislikable character since the first time he opened his mouth.

24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
Set-- Nine Lives Blade Works. 'nuff said.

25. Most tragic death.
Berserker's in UBW.

26. Most disturbing scene.
Fate / Hollow Ataraxia, Horror Story Intro. Oh god.

27. Unpopular opinion.

Loli Rin's part in Fate Zero anime is really unnecessary and detrimental to the overall quality of the series.

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
Cu, he would not die and be awesome until the end.

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
Arihiko. And I'm not sure what I would so since being Arihiko would be awesome enough.

1. Your favourite character and why.
Uh, tossup between Tohno Shiki and Rin Tohsaka. I like Shiki because if you can look beyond his blandness in a good chunk of the routes you can get probably one of the best developed characters Nasu has ever written, with a clear character arc, flawed but awesome. Rin is just waifu material, smart, beautiful and still having her own issues to sort out.

2. Your least favourite character and why.
Medusa!Rider. Nasu just didn't seem to know what to do with her, and it shows.

3. Favourite quote or line(s).

"That's your mistake vampire.
Life and death may be back to back, but they will never face each other.
I'll show you. This is what it means to kill something."
Yeah, might be 2edgy4u or whatever, but still, it is one of the best moments of Tsuki.

4. Scene or moment that made you think.
Actually I think the one that got me the most on that front was not some pseudophilosophical babble but the simple statement of Archer that went something like "A genius can never understand the struggle of a mundane person" or sth.

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.
"At that instant I realize Tohsaka is a girl."

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
Hisui True, also known as "fuck everything"

7. Your favourite pairing(s).
Don't really ship. Dunno, ShikixCiel?

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
ArcherxRin. Became kind of the default for a lot of stories, and it weirds me out.

9. A character you can relate to the most.
Strangely, Shinji. Because I would also totally try to get into the war then piss myself when shit gets serious!

10. Favourite Command Symbol’s design.
Kiritsugu or Tokiomi

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.
I kinda grew to less hate Shinji after Koto told e why she liked him? Otherwise my opinions don't really change.

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.
Kariya. He was a tragic character, but then everybody made him out to be a saint incapable of failure.

13. Favourite Master.
Rin I guess.

14. Favourite Servant.
5th war Hassan

15. Favourite team.
Archer and Rin. They have the best team dynamic in the Fate franchise.

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.
Hisui True.

17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.
Kohaku True

18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.
I guess I should pick something different here? Ciel route when she finally starts crying.

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
Assassin, Hassan because they are the best in their class.

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.
UBW or IH

21. A character you would shag.
A lot.

22. A character you would hug.
Zouken. He needs a hug.

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
Saber's VA in the Zero finale. That YAMEROOOOOOO scream just gives me the chills.

24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
Easily this:

There was a wooden table in the traditional Japanese room.
The assassin slid under it as he appeared.
"Hm?"
The man and Saiki were caught off guard.
For one thing, this is a small table. What is he doing, the instant he thought that, Saiki was dragged under the table from his foot.
-------Then this.
There was no time for Saiki to scream.
The moment he was dragged under the table, the head of the old man called Saiki rolled over the tatami floor.

Then body parts started flying everywhere.
Under that table.
In a space so small that barely one person can fit into, the terrible dissection took place. And then...
Drenched in blood all over his body, the assassin crawled out.
Best action scene Nasu has ever written, and it's like 10 sentences.

25. Most tragic death.
Shiki's suicide in Akiha route, or Alexander in F/Z

26. Most disturbing scene.
Every Kohaku empty eyes scene. Even the first one in the kitchen.

27. Unpopular opinion.
Dark Sakura is pretty hot.

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
Tell Kiritsugu that you don't actually have to do everything in extremes. Fixes a lot of problems for a lot of people instantly!

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
Shiki, wake up covered in bitches.

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
Lots of them, since I already picked the table once, I guess Nine Bullet Revolver goes here

1. Favorite character and why

Rin. Part of it comes from the fact I have a thing for Tsunderes, black hair and pigtails and Rin manages to have all of these in a single package.

2. Least favorite character and why

Saber. For cryin' out loud, I've had enough of Saber overuse.

3. Favorite quote or line(s).


I am the bone of my sword, etc.

Interesting enough, while Saber is my least favorite character, Archer is my second least favorite character, yet I love the UBW chant.

4. Scene or moment that made you think

None in the Fate series. It did happen in Tsuki and KnK, but not in Fate.

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh

Rin's H-scene. All of it. "It's not even half of the real size" was what cracked me up.

6. Scene or moment that made you cry

HF Normal.

7. Favorite pairings

Shirou/Rin, Shirou/Sakura, Lancer/Rin, SaberAlter/DarkSakura (the only instance where I can tolerate Saber) Shirou/Ko-Gil, Shirou/Shinji

8. Least favorite pairings

Shirou/Saber, Archer/Rin

9. A character you can relate the most

None really.

10. Favorite Command Spell design

Never paid much attention on them, but Ilya's full-body lines are very cool.

11. Hated character I grew to like

I wansn't the biggest fan of either Sakura or Shinji when I first played FSN. Now I like both of them (except together as a pairing).

12. Liked character I grew to hate

I would't say I liked them, but my attitude towards both Saber and Archer was only indifference at first, before the hating came.

13. Favorite Master

Ilya.

14. Favorite Servant

Medea.

15. Favorite Team

Sakura and Rider.

16. Scene or moment that broke my heart

That Ilya scene in UBW. 'nuff said.

17. Scene or moment that made me happy

The epilogue of Fate, because it meant that damned Route finally ended.

18. Scene or moment that made me sad

Ilya's sacrifice at the end of HF.

19. If I were a Master, my Servant's class and real name

A Saber, because I can't fight for shit so my Servant has to do all the work. Prototype's Saber, then? He can Excaliblast and I can tolerate him, unlike Arturia.

20. Favorite NP

Enuma Elish.

21. Character I would shag

Rider, Rin, Sakura, Ayako Shirou, Ko-Gil, Lancer.

22. Character I would hug

Ilya, and would sure enjoy it before Berserker beheaded me.

23. VA that impressed me and the scene's name.

Kirei's introduction of the War in the early parts of the VN.

24. Favorite scene/moment and why

Shirou versus Gilgamesh in UBW. Freaking awesome to see the mighty King of Heroes be defeated (even if Shirou never dealt the final blow) by a Faker, and non-CG Faker.

25. Most tragic death.

Ilya in UBW.

26. Most disturbing scene.

Zouken creating a new body from the remains of the woman he killed.

27. Unpopular opinion.

SABER/SHIROU SUCKS AND THE PAIRING HAS TO BE KILLED WITH FIRE.

28. Character's fate I would change and how.

Make Ilya survive HF. Dunno how.

22. A character you would hug.
Saber is huggable. Also Rider. (I just stole Seika's answer because it applies to me)

50%
23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
Liam O'Brien, for pretty much everything he does

50%
24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
The end of Fate, or the very ending of HF, with the cherry blossoms and stuff, or Nine Lives Revolver, or the fight with Heracles in Fate, or Sparks Liner High.

50%
25. Most tragic death.
Herakles and Ilya together in UBW.

50%
26. Most disturbing scene.
Plenty. But discovering the orphans beneath the Church was particularly nasty. (again, stole Seika's answer because it fits)

50%
27. Unpopular opinion.
Gilgamesh is shit, guys. Only his Noble Phantasms and some of his surprises are cool. Like how he apparently figures out everything in F/E CCC way before everyone else, or other glimpses that he's actually not totally stupid.

50%
28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
Heracles lives, becomes good guy, becomes sane, proceeds to solo the war and fix the Grail.

50%
29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
The nasuverse is full of misery. No thanks bro.

50%
30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
I'm thinking of a scene that I haven't forgotten ever, and the only one that comes to mind is the last bits of Fate, from when Saber confronts Gilgamesh all the way to where Shirou and Saber say goodbye after Saber destroys the mountain.

3. Favourite quote or line(s).
"Fuck that". It's spoken somewhere near the end of HF as Shirou stares down the Grail, but I can't find the exact screencap.
Your favorite line is a liberty someone took in the translation? That's kinda funny.
(But I agree, it totally fit, and had me fistpumping)

1. Your favorite character and why.
Kirei

2. Your least favorite character and why.
EMIYA. Well, I like him, but you asked who my least favorite is. It just means he's the last in line from my list of favorite characters


3. Favorite quote or line(s).
"I am the bone of my sword...."

"REJOICE!"

4. Scene or moment that made you think.
Mind of Steel.

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.
The one where Shirou almost gets kissed by a half-awake Sakura, then jumps away on the table when Saber interrupts

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
"....You're strong Berserker."

7. Your favorite pairing(s).
Shirou/Kitchen, and Archer/Ideal. We all know how tsun he is to Ideal-kun.
Idon'treallyhaveafavoritepairingsoIcan'twriteanyth ingheresorry.
8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
Saber/Holy Grail. We all saw how destructive their relationship was.

9. A character you can relate to the most.
I guess it's Rin. I know how your responsibility to your family can take over your life.

10. Favourite Command Symbol’s design.
Within FSN, it's Rin's. Beyond, it's Waver's

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.
Oh, hmmm....Shirou? I really hated how idiotic he seemed, but as I read on I realized the reason why.

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.
Kiritsugu. I dunno I thought he was cool but then I realized how he was actually the reason for all the shit that happened to Shirou and EMIYA.

13. Favourite Master.
Rin. Because Zettai Ryouki.

14. Favourite Servant.
The only real choice is Herakles.

15. Favourite team.
Herakles and Ilya.

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.
HF True End scene. Ilya ;^;

17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.
UBW Good End, I guess.

18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.
HF Normal End. It's spring again.

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
Herakles in Archer class. Because fuck you.

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm?
Tsubame Gaeshi. Disregard logic, hack swallows.

21. A character you would shag.
Medea. Rider. Basically, the women who actually look like women, not teenage girls.

22. A character you would hug.
Ilya. Because she is adorable.

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
Saber's VA.
EKISU-
-KARIBA!
and
YAMERRROOOOO!
24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
Nine Bullet revolver because it rocks.

25. Most tragic death.
Ilya's heart surgery.

26. Most disturbing scene.
Worms. Anything with worms.

27. Unpopular opinion.
Ilya should not have a route. Instead, she should have a game all to herself, about how she fucks everyone up in Holy Grail War and keep Shirou as her plaything.

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
hmmm Sakura. I guess I would change how, well, forced her background seems to be. I mean the whole rape thing I could deal with, the fucking worms were just going way way to far.

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
I would be Herakles for a day using 9 lives on every task and chore.

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.

"I have the original models of all the Noble Phantasms. But they are all nameless, and I am not their only possessor."
A cylindrical sword.
The sword is made of three parts, and each part is turning slowly in different directions.
It looks like a rock drill to pierce through a hard surface.

"But this is different. This sword is truly a sword that only the king of heroes possesses.
--- It has no name ...

Does that mean everyone needs to legally change their names to "mongrel" unless they happen to be Saber, Kotomine, or Xander?

Doesn't matter. There's tiers for these kind of things. In this case, "whatever Gilgamesh decides to call something" is several levels above its actual true name. This is confirmed by the fact that all side materials and word of god uses the terms that Gilgamesh came up with on the spot, rather than acknowledge the lesser truth of reality.

The paperwork was filled out in advance, through the power of the Holy Grail. What a convenient system.

Kelnish
January 4th, 2013, 03:20 PM
Kelnish wants to play!

1. Your favourite character and why.
Kirei Kotomine. I'm a suckah for villians and Kotomine is pretty awesome at that whole primary antagonist thing.

2. Your least favourite character and why.
Probably Kozuki, I like him well enough but he just seems kinda lulz EASTERN MARTIAL ARTS IS FOR WINNAHS and that's his entire character.

3. Favourite quote or line(s).

"The same goes for you. There is no sanity here. Our end will be the same, even if we accomplish our goals.
You will destroy it, while I will protect it.
But there is nothing to be gained, no matter whose goal is achieved. You came here knowing that.
http://fsn.seorinwastaken.com/line3.pngThis is a meaningless battle. We are two madmen engaging in useless folly."

4. Scene or moment that made you think.
Gem Sword Creation

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.
Rin's Date made me chuckle.

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
Ilya's demise in HF true. A couple others too because I'm a big 'ole softie at heart.

7. Your favourite pairing(s).
Ehhh of the three route ships Saber is probably my favorite. But that's only because of F/HA and my avatar related. Penguin > all. Caster x Kozuki is pretty good too.

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
Shirou Emiya x Rin. When I say Shirou Emiya it is inclusive of Archer because they are the same person.

9. A character you can relate to the most.
Homura is a pretty cool girl I guess? Not that the track team is really a much of a thing in FSN.

10. Favourite Command Symbol’s design.
In FSN? I dunno probably Sakura's? Kiritsugu's is my favorite in the franchise.

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.
Shirou, he seemed shitty at first but then the story happened.

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.
I think pretty much all the character are pretty cool guys and got even better as they developed so, no one?
13. Favourite Master.
Kotomine because favorite character.

14. Favourite Servant.
EMIYA, Nasu's ORIGINAL CHARACTER DO NOT STEAL in his crossover mythology fanfiction.

15. Favourite team.
Team Zouken at it's peak. Saber Alter, Berserk Berserker, the Shadow, TA, Zouken, and Shinji.

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.
Didn't we cover this like two seconds ago? Ilya's other death scene in UBW then.

17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.
Taiga Dojos. All of them.

18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.
Repeats repeating is repetitious. The end of Fate was bittersweet and left me meloncholy which is a subsett of sad methinks.

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
Archer and either of the two that appeared in Fate Stay Night. Because I want to win and those two are independent of their master when it comes to combat abilities.

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.
Rulebreaker

21. A character you would shag.
Yukika full stop.

22. A character you would hug.
Seibah

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
Nakata. All of them.

24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
Manly fist fight at the end of the world because holy shit awesome.

25. Most tragic death.
Rider in both UBW and Fate in hindsight. Or Ilya in UBW. Or Gilgamesh always. Or fuck.

26. Most disturbing scene.
... I dunno. Maybe when Assassin chest burst? Nothing was really that disturbing IIRC. Orphans maybe? Shinji almost raping Sakura made me uncomfortable. Zouken eating is pretty creepy. Oh, I got it! Rin's sex scene.

27. Unpopular opinion.
If this was everything, Gilgamesh wasn't command sealed in Fate/Zero. Since it isn't, Saber was trying in Sparks Liner High is pretty contentious.

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
Sakura being killed by Shirou during Superhero. Because MoS is interesting to me.

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
Gilgamesh. Because holy shit why wouldn't you?

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
First fight of the whole novel. When Lancer is like, the fuck are you doing why is this what is this oh god my brain hurts ima gonna stab you. That's what got me hooked, at least. Failing that, "Kotomine, Kirei!" during the manly fist fight at the end of the world.

22. A character you would hug.
Black Len. That mean, old penis as long as your forearm must've hurt. ;_;
23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
Ayako Kawasumi. Her calm voice is so soothing, like in Fate's finale, and her shouts are powerful.
24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
The Fate finale. SWARDZ TO CHEST, SWARDZ TO FACE, PUFFS AND PRIESTS FALL FROM GRACE!
25. Most tragic death.
Kohaku. ;C; and Saber Alter.
26. Most disturbing scene.
"HELP ME"
27. Unpopular opinion.
Say what you think, the Fate route is also awesome.
28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
Nah, I don't think I'd want to play with Fate. Strange things happen when you do that.

Archer. I would LOVE to get on Rin's head. Fun things are fun. ^_^
30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
/STAY NIGHT (I and II), THE GOLDEN SEPARATION, THE CONTINUATION OF THE DREAD AND THE LAST EPISODE.

Ratman
January 4th, 2013, 04:53 PM
1. Your favourite character and why.
Kotomine. He somehow stands out as a villian, it's not that he's well written, rather that he would be a generic BBEG everywhere else, but in this game, a person like that actually has something to say about the themes.
2. Your least favourite character and why.
Not sure, I kind of hated on both Sola adn Kariya I guess.
3. Favourite quote or line(s).


Spinning the eight verses.
The load transmits from the body to the soul, and more meaning is
"-Ah"
And Emiya Shirou dies.
The standing figure is no different from a machine.
It's programmed.
It's programmed to swing the sword, but it's a corpse with no desire to move.

But even without human intelligence...
There are machines that weave many dreams in this world.
4. Scene or moment that made you think.
Sparks Liner High
5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.
Taiga choking Shirou, I think it was in Heaven's Feel?

Pretty sure there were none, but Last Episode was really strong for me.
7. Your favourite pairing(s).
NOPE
8. Your least favourite pairing(s).

Last Episode
18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.
It's spring
19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
If I was a complete muggle, I'd propably go for either Assassin or Rider, most likely any servant that isn't Saber or Berserker, because then I'd just get gank'd.
20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.
Excalibur, not even kidding
21. A character you would shag.
Rider
22. A character you would hug.
Rin
23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
YOROKOBU
24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
Sparks Liner High
25. Most tragic death.
Well the heart thing didn't feel at all good
26. Most disturbing scene.
Not sure, but Erotic Black Hole and Sakura killing Shinji are high up.
27. Unpopular opinion.
Shinji was just a faggot. He never got to become anything more or less in the story. F/HA hammers down that even half a year later, Shinji is still a faggot, so in your face.
28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
I'd lead the Fate Shirous who didn't get into Avalon there.
29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
With Shirou at the beginning, would just summon Saber, thank me later Rin.
30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
YOU ASKED THIS ONE ALREADY

Hellioning
January 5th, 2013, 02:25 AM
1. Your favourite character and why.
Gilgamesh. He's a wonderful asshole.

Arturia. I don't hate her but god she bores me.


3. Favourite quote or line(s).
REJOICE


4. Scene or moment that made you think.
"Superheroes need people in danger so that they can save them"

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
"You're strong, Berserker."


7. Your favourite pairing(s).
Saber/Sakura, Nero/Extra Protag


8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
Saber/Gil, especially when it's supposed to be romantic.


9. A character you can relate to the most.
I don't know about you, but I find it difficult to relate to heroes and mages. So... Akihiko?


10. Favourite Command Symbol’s design.
I don't really pay attention to command seal design.

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.
Gil. I thought 'wow he's an asshole' but then I realized 'wow he's an awesome asshole'


12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.
I can't think of any


13. Favourite Master.
Kotomine

HF True


18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.
HF Normal


19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
I'd say Gil, but he'd get on my nerves. So... Nero? Or if it has to be FSN Herakles.


20. Favourite Noble Phantasm?
Tsubame Gaeshi, if that counts. If not, Ea or Clarent, entirely for it's amazing subtitle/alternate reading/whatever.


21. A character you would shag.
I can't think of that many I wouldn't shag. Anyone old and or deformed, I guess.


22. A character you would hug.
Sakura, Kohaku, Hisui...

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
Iksander's goodbye scene to Waver was awesome for the both of them.


24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
Kojiro's fight in Fate, or 'king of heroes, do you have enough swords?" for epicness.


25. Most tragic death.
Dunno, Archer's?


26. Most disturbing scene.
I jumped out of my seat whenever penis worms showed up.


27. Unpopular opinion.
I actually like Mordred, and enjoy her inclusion to Apocrypha.


28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
I'd make Enkidu not die, so he and Gil can have manly bromance together.


29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
Why would I want to be in the Nasuverse?


30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
My first fate scene, Sparks Liner High

White Winter
January 5th, 2013, 02:28 AM
Oh, how fun!



1. Your favourite character and why.
Ilya, definitely. Adorable, innocent, amazing personality with just the right dose of sadism and maturity when it's needed. I can't think of any reason to not love her.

2. Your least favourite character and why.
Shinji, not because he's a bad character, but he pisses me off so much that every moment of screentime he has just makes me want him to die faster.

3. Favourite quote or line(s)
  Walking with the wind blowing on your face.  Walking towards the future.
  Busy days with no compass to guide you.
  After traveling to distant exotic countriesÖ
  You will return to where you belong, one sunny day.
-Brilliant Years ending poem

4. Scene or moment that made you think.
Heavens Feel when Shirou thinks about the friction between his ideals and Sakura at the park. How hard it is to have to choose between someone you care about and the goals you've worked so hard for...

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.
Most of the Tiger Dojo's, especially the one where Ilya attacks the dojo with a TANK

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
Ilya's death in Unlimited Blade Works and the recap on her past in the scene after.

7. Your favourite pairing(s).
Shirou/Ilya, Shirou/Rin, Kariya/Aoi

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
Can't think of any I really dislike.

9. A character you can relate to the most.
Sakura

10. Favourite Command Symbolís design.
Kirei's

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.
Archer

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.
Can't think of one.

13. Favourite Master.
Ilya

14. Favourite Servant.
Caster (Extra)

15. Favourite team.
Not technically a servant/master team, but Irisviel and Saber were great in Zero the times they fought together, it was completely natural

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.
Ilya's death in Unlimited Blade Works, again

17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.
Unlimited Blade Works True End

18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
Caster

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.
Gae Bolg

21. A character you would shag.
Not touching this one, haha

22. A character you would hug.
Ilya

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
Okiayu Ryotaro for Beserker in Zero. The emotion was perfect.

24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
Shirou and Ilya's meeting in the town in the Fate route. It goes from horrifying, to confusing, to adorable and sweet.

25. Most tragic death.
Ilya's in Unlimited Blade Works and Kariya's in Zero.

26. Most disturbing scene.
The first worm attack scene in Heavens Feel. (Seriously hate worms)

27. Unpopular opinion.
Kariya deserved better than what he got.

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
I'd definitely give Sakura and Kariya a better fate. If Kariya not winning the Fourth Holy Grail War, at least surviving the Fourth Holy Grail War and instead falling into a coma in the city somewhere and waking up 10 years later in time for the Fifth. It'd make for a pretty interesting alternate timeline in my opinion

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
Ilya, because she's my favourite and our personalities are similar enough to fill eachothers roles. I'd play with Shirou, troll with Taiga, and of course participate in food antics.

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
Shirou finally living to his potential and unleashing Unlimited Blade Works on Gilgamesh

Kotomine Kirei - thought process, personality, etc

1. Your favourite character and why.
Lancer, he's hilarious and I'm jealous of his manliness.
2. Your least favourite character and why.
Emiya, too emo for me but I think its mainly his fanbase that has caused my intense dislike.
3. Favourite quote or line(s).

"…You are too easy-going, Lancer. Do you know the saying 'grass is always greener on the other side of the fence'?"
"Heh, what are you saying?
There's no way I'd know such a phrase!"
4. Scene or moment that made you think.
My first bad end made me think the most I suppose, how was I supposed to know that I should chose the non-action route. Damn you Medea and your space altering BS.
5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.
Shirou taking off Issei's shirt.
6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
HF normal end. The entire thing with Sakura walking around the house was brutal.
7. Your favourite pairing(s).
MedeaxKuzuki.
8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
GilgameshxSaber and ShirouxIllya.
9. A character you can relate to the most.
Rin.
10. Favourite Command Symbol’s design.
Never really thought about it.
11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.
Shirou, thought he was a sexist pig but in the end I decided he was just insane and a good plot device.
12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.
Emiya. I liked him the first time through but slowly got tired of his overall emoness and stupid philosophies.

Interesting how I start off disliking Shirou but grow to like him while having the opposite opinion of the adult version.

13. Favourite Master.
Shirou.
14. Favourite Servant.
Lancer.
15. Favourite team.
Medea and Kuzuki.
16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.
HF normal end.
17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.
HF true end. Got the normal end the first time, so true end was a godsend.
18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.
Just to mix it up, the bad end where Rin wiped Shirou's memories(her face when she looks at him the next day looks so sad).
19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
Lancer and Cu Chulainn. So much bro.

In reality, probably Assassin or Archer, I think they'd work best with my talents.

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.
Gae Bolg. Though they call Cybele a noble phantasm once and I prefer that ability...
21. A character you would shag.
Medusa for obvious reasons.
22. A character you would hug.
Sakura or perhaps Issei, if only to watch him get really uncomfortable.
23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
I played with music on most of the time, so I never really heard their voices(I think I would've hated Sakura if I could have heard her the first time through). Kotomine had the best voice actor though.
24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
Anything involving Lancer after the Saber summoning scene. He's just so awesome.
25. Most tragic death.
Shirou, when he destroys the grail at the end of HF.
26. Most disturbing scene.
When Shinji tries to rape Sakura.
27. Unpopular opinion.
Gilgamesh is a shit character(though I'm not sure if this is an unpopular opinion among people who have read the VN).
28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
Lancer. I'd make it so Bazett lives.
29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
Gilgamesh, fairly obvious reasons(money, good looks, power).
30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
Anything involving Lancer or Shirou committing suicide.

Alright, since fucking everyone (including food) has given actual answers I have to -______-

I ain't gonna be like the people who gave answers outside of FSN even if I want to. And nor will I be one of the people who lists 3 or 4 things when it asks for your favorite.

1. Your favourite character and why.
Ayako. But I've been hipster towards her for awhile because tang and tobias made like the whole board love the shit out of her when they spent like all of two or three years ago talking about her.

2. Your least favourite character and why.
Archer. Too popular and never understood why people like him. The only time I have ever though he was cool was during Battle Moon Wars when I accidentally screwed myself over during one mission and it was Archer vs Zouken, AM, and all of the minions because Rider is worse then useless. And he needed to hold out at 100 HP for like two turns for Lancer to come in and kick everyone's ass. It was amazing. But that was all the game.

3. Favourite quote or line(s).
Can't remember off the top of my head but the 'divide my mind in nine and mobilize all 27 Circuits in my body and kill Berserker in one blow' really kickstarted Nine Lives for me.

4. Scene or moment that made you think.
Uhh,

The stairway scene in UBW. 'I didn't ask for this'.

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.
Hiding under the bed, I guess. I honestly can't remember there was definitely something funnier I just can't remember it and am just saying a random scene.

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
Never cried once during FSN. Too immature when I first read it. But I guess I felt really crestfallen when I picked the trust Saber option vs Zouken in HF. And he started applauding you and started talking about how surprised he was that you would trust her that much.

7. Your favourite pairing(s).
Not really a shipper but I guess I'll go with AyakoxShirou.

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
Anything with Archer.

9. A character you can relate to the most.
No one in FSN specifically fits. If I could use outside of FSN hell yeah.

10. Favourite Command Symbol’s design.
Kariya's

Illya's. The one on the hand though not the full body.

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.

Saber.

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.

Shirou (dislike his personality).

13. Favourite Master.

Kotomine.

14. Favourite Servant.

Lancer.

15. Favourite team.

Kotomine-Gil-Lancer

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.

Nothing really. Hmm I guess that, Sparks Linear High originally left me with a rather empty feeling.

17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.

A few of the comedy-ish scenes.

18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.

Already mentioned somewhere.

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.

Lancer. Is my ideal class (I am a dpsfag). But my ideal eirei would be Rama or something like that (who would prolly be Archer or Caster). Kinda like Vlad and Benkei. Benkei was actually my original idea (as Maruder or something I think) in Regalia before I decided to go with Chanter (Better Synergy with my Master) and only made one post >_>

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.

..... gah, just FSN.

Gate of Babylon.

21. A character you would shag.

Lily.

22. A character you would hug.

Gao.

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?

Rejoice Emiya Shirou.

24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.

Nine Bullet Revolver.

25. Most tragic death.

Shirou's death in SLH.

26. Most disturbing scene.

Illya's.

27. Unpopular opinion.

Not sure, if its unpopular but I dislike Archer, and my current opinion of pretty much all the main heroines is just meh.

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?

No.

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).

Gil. Because of how easily you could abuse GoB for not just that day but long lasting effects.

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.

Now, my favorite scene is either 'Is that all I am to you, Shirou?' in SLH or everything about NBR. But the question is unforgettable.

The most iconic and unforgettable and the scene that will always be remembered in FSN is 'Are you my Master?'



TL;DR plz make a new one that includes all works. As I am a rule abiding person.

Altima of the Gates
January 5th, 2013, 01:13 PM
1. Your favourite character and why.

I like so many but, Sakura, because she has the character type I like. A person who contemplates her surroundings, thinks, and contradicts herself. But then I also like that she considers the thoughts of others so much. Basically, I like introspective characters, is the jist of it.

2. Your least favourite character and why.

Kirei. For his long monologues.

But seriously, I don't like him mostly because he is one of those characters that has the capacity to be of great help to people, but he uses it to stain and wound the most vulnerable part of people: the heart. It's anathema to me.

3. Favourite quote or line(s).

"I am the bone of my sword. But I already knew that."

Mainly because there is something powerful behind it, and it is repeated through all the routes.

and

"Let's go home, Sakura. Cut your ties with him."

4. Scene or moment that made you think.
HF Normal. The flashbacks made me see things I saw in the relationship between Shirou and Sakura in a new light.

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.

Either Shirou's confession to Rin in front of Lancer in UBW or these:



http://fsn.seorinwastaken.com/f/F02-02c-08.jpg

I'm helping you to pay you back for showing me this great pleasure, and for my own benefit."

"ÖHm. Does that mean you're stealing some of my skill every day, Sakura?"

http://fsn.seorinwastaken.com/sakP06c.png

http://fsn.seorinwastaken.com/sakP06a.png
"Yes. I improve quickly just by helping you. So please be ready. I'll make you admit defeat someday."
Whoa.
I can't believe she said it so bluntly!

"ÖMan. If I'd known this was coming, I would never have taught you to cook. You never even heard of oil before coming here, but now you're after me like an enemy. Really, why are you chasing me like this?
Can't you just be happy making food?"

http://fsn.seorinwastaken.com/sakP08f.png
"Of course I'm after you. You can't be better than me."


"ÖSo, um, Sakura. ÖWell, what did you think?"
She's the first person besides Kiritsugu who saw me training in magic.
I practiced in front of Tohsaka these past few days, but that's different from the training I do in the shed.

So Sakura's opinion is like a test.
Sakura is Matou's magus, so I might be able to get a good scorehttp://fsn.seorinwastaken.com/line4.png

http://fsn.seorinwastaken.com/sakC03e.png
"Umm. I guess I'll use my right to remain silent. I'm not Nee-san, but it'd be terrible if I put a score on it."
"Ughhttp://fsn.seorinwastaken.com/line4.pngdoes that mean I got a failing score?"

http://fsn.seorinwastaken.com/sakC07d.png
"Ahaha, you can say it's a really bad failing score."



6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
Liberation/Beautiful Aria/Your distortion - these are the ones that stand out for me.

7. Your favourite pairing(s).
It's obvious, but there are some many intertwining relationships in Fate that I honestly say it just barely makes it.

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).

Rider/Ayako if I am being perfectly honest. Like Sakura told her, she ought to try making friends with the girl first, otherwise it is too rapey/molest-y.

9. A character you can relate to the most.

Can't say for sure atm, that would require more thought.

10. Favourite Command Symbolís design.

Sakura's and Waver's. Waver's especially because of the shield like design it has.

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.

Archer, to be honest. But then I found the similarities and he became just a sourpuss rather than just a dick.

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.

I don't like Saber as much as I have before, but it hasn't decreased that much. As to why, I just like other people more is all I can say.

13. Favourite Master.

Probably Ilya. She should have steamrolled so hard. er wishcraft, two combat maids and a train called Heracles? Total gip.

14. Favourite Servant.

Rider, she honestly is really, really strong and always fights the strongest people in gimped or completely overwhelmed status. Her ability is just not given the greatness it deserves.

15. Favourite team.

Since the Servant/Master teams were created to be compatible (except for Rider/Shinji for obvious reasons imo), most of them I like, but if we are talking effectiveness, it has to be Kuzuki/Caster ,Lancer/Bazett, and Ilya/Berserker. For broness, it has to be Rider/Waver-Shirou/Saber-Archer/Rin-Rider/Sakura.

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.

That which cannot be surrendered and Once it's spring/HF Normal combo.
Winter forest/At the end of a miracle gets an honorable mention.

17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.

HF True, and Sunny day made me feel the happiest. But I also greatly enjoyed Tohsaka Rin VII and Matou Sakura II and III.

18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.

All of the "Sisters" scenes. Winter forest, and your distortion.

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.

Rider, and all Riders we've seen I would love to try. I would be intrigued at the all of the abilities we could try in tandem and the strategies me and my Servant could think up.
If it was one of the knight classes, then Archer, since I like long distance, as for spirit, anyone but Gil, we would never get anything done. Caster might be good for the same reason I picked Rider as well, and Medea or Tamamo please.

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.

Bloodfort Andromeda. Good battlefield advantage along with useful utility. Second place would be Rule Breaker or Fragarach.

21. A character you would shag.
Any female possibly lol. Maybe Astolfo after a few drinks (j/k).

22. A character you would hug.

Ilya and Sakura are on top of the list. Medusa/Medea respectively. Then Rin, I think she needs one whether she thinks so or not. Shirou, Lancer, Herc and Archer deserve a pat on the back I'd say.

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?

Junichi Suwabe has such a rich voice, on par with Nakata imo. Sugiyama as Shirou does a good job, but my permanent mental picture of his VA as Sasuke ruined it before I got used to him. And Noriko Shitaya can really bring out the emotional parts(when I used the RN patch for HF Normal for the first time, it really broke my heart with her delivery and she did Rain wonderfully), but the subtle nuances of mild irritation and such were done so well, I kind of wonder why people don't like her. She does subtle characters very well.

24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.

Distant Twilight(I). Gave pretty much all the key points of Sakura's character (her nueroses, how she feels about magic/Rin/Shirou/herself, and why it is she likes the guy) and something everyone should read if they want to write her. Runner up is your distortion.

25. Most tragic death.
Ilya's execution by Gil in UBW by far.

26. Most disturbing scene.

Last piece and pretty much every time Shirou got submerged in mud/AM.

27. Unpopular opinion.

Shirou isn't an empty person imo. Your distortion proved that for me.

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?

Rework the intricacies of magi society in a few ways. Namely with the way kids are adopted and more stringent enforcement about "acquired research materials" as well as harsher enforcement on magi in general. Zouken went unchecked in Fuyuki for two hundred years, that is some BS if the land is supposedly so well guarded. This will benefit more than just one specific character in the long run I'd say.

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).

None really, would not know what to do with myself. but it might be fun to be Taiga just to mess with everyone.

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.

Too many to name.

1- In Fate/Zero, Emiya Kiritsugu. Incredibly thought-provoking take on what it means to embody "justice."


In Fate/stay night...choices are Illyasviel Von EInzbern, closely followed by Kotomine Kirei and Gilgamesh. Because Illya has a compelling backstory (and also happens to be my personal choice for T-M "tragic heroine" as a result of this), is ladden with storytelling potential, and an appealing character design. Kotomine is there because he is my favorite antagonist of all time, and Gilgamesh is on the list because he's just this guy who you can't help but love to hate and like every second of it. His flagrant douchebaggery and strength just draw you in, so that high-ranking Charisma of his is clearly at work.


2- While I have reason to like all the characters to various extents there are a couple that I tend to be very "Meh" towards, and those would be Medea and Matou Sakura. Medea because she's a biiiiiiiitch and doesn't get more characterization beyond this in Hollow Ataraxia and thus I as a reader put into Shirou's shoes was strongly conditioned to view her as an antagonist in the game, and Sakura because going through HF's "slow days" of slice-of-life (of which there are a lot of, and ever more so than in Fate) is fairly excruciating and makes me want to bop myself with a hammer, among a few other reasons.


3- That poem thing at the end of Fate. You know, the one:


A battle has been fought, and is now over.
Place your sword upon the ground, and rest in the temporal peace.
After dozing in the warmth of a dream, a new day will begin.


The days keep passing by...
And we still chase the same star we once saw.


That or anything Kojiro, Kotomine, or Gilgamesh says.


4- Uhhh...probably when it is revealed that King Arthur is a girl. Big wut inducing moment there that makes sense in context as the story goes on. Because we were all thinking for sure that she was going to be Joan of Arc.


5- That scene in UBW where Saber follows Shirou to school.


6- Illya and Berserker's deaths in UBW. That was definitely a swift kick to the emotional gonads.


7- For canon, I'd say I'm pretty inclined towards Shirou/Saber, though I'm alright with the others no problem. Non-canon pairings, Shirou/Illya masterrace, with Shirou/Ayako a close second.


If we're talking Fate/Zero, then Gilles/Joan and Kiritsugu/Iri.


8- I'unno. Comparatively speaking, probably Saber/Gil, even though I do like fanart of this for some reason. Probably because they're pretty. And blonde.


9- Issei.


10- Full-body tats are hardecore so point goes to Illya.


11- Gilgamesh. See above reasons.


12- Emiya Shirou. While I do indeed like the guy the wank he gets from many of the newfags particularly grates on me.


13- Shirou or Illya because Master/Servant dynamics.


14- Gilgamesh or Lancer. Or Rider.


15- Illya/Berserker, Rin/Archer, Kotomine/Gilgamesh.


16- Gil pwning everyone in the Einzbern Castle, because of emotional nad-crunching stated above.


17- Continuation of the Dream/Last Episode. Both of their messages are definitely applicable to the daily life of even a non-magus, non-HERO OF JUSTICE.


18- Said it twice already.


19- Lancer or Assassin. Cu Chulain as Lancer. And if I get an actual choice in Assassin beyond Hassan-i-Sabbah (which, for the record, I am okay with) I'd want either Semiramis or Jack the Ripper. Li Shuwen is also a fine choice, too.


20- Gate of Babylon. Useful and so exploitable. Gae Bolg if I needs to do a good killing.


21- If its a female from the Fate franchise then I'm not picky. They're all gorgeous.


22- Illya, Saber, Sakura. In that order. Though really, everyone in /stay night needs a hug. Except Kotomine. And Gilgamesh. And Zouken.


For the record, I would hug the shit out of Herakles.


23 - Uryuu + KUUURUUU = Hilariously awesome. Also, Jouji Nakata reading Engrish Bible verses. Jouji Nakata in general, really.


24-
1) AZOTH PUNCH
2) Die Lorelei


25- Any time Illya bites it. Seriously, girl just can't get a break.


26- Allow me to count the ways...Forest of No Return, Shirou's "brothers" and "sisters" under the church, Shirou becoming Caster's Mystic Code, Illya's tanking all those grievous wounds in her UBW death scene and still somehow living long enough to be conscious when Gil tears her heart out, True Assassin doing a xenomorph impression with Kojiro and chewing up his remains, and whenever the worms came out to play.


27- N/A


28- Illya. Einzbern women have terrible luck and she could use a break.


29- I'd be fascinated to live life as Kotomine Kirei. It wouldn't end well or be mentally healthy for me, but it'd be darned fascinating.


30- SPL and COD.

Allow me to elaborate, I agree with your point, but what I was getting into is that there are people here that consider Fate to be ok, but they think that the other works of Nasu are superior to it. So they made their own list.

1. Your favourite character and why.

Fujimura? because she makes me laugh. honestly though, I like lots of charachters for different reasons. I could have said kohaku because I love her style, shiki because I enjoy the way his mind works, Rider because she makes my pants feel funny, Aoko because of her swagger.....list goes on and on.


2. Your least favourite character and why.

Gilgamash. Boring invincible villains are boring. Its a bit ironic but despite the fact that his tendency to monologue grates on my nerves, but kotomine kirei is actually the type of villain I think works best.


3. Favourite quote or line(s).

Glasses on or off


4. Scene or moment that made you think.

Akiha playing along with Kohaku's revenge plan


5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.

Rin calling out shirou on masturbating to her


6. Scene or moment that made you cry.

Saber and shirou's parting


7. Your favourite pairing(s).

Saber and shirou


8. Your least favourite pairing(s).

Saber and Gil

9. A character you can relate to the most.

Tohno shiki.

What was food like before then?

In the beginning, there was baiken and arai. They ruled General Discussion. For a while, all was good. food was only 5 years old then, an innocent little girl who was dazzled by the wonders of Nasuverse.

With the arrival of the Fate/Stay Night translation came the n00bs. The n00bs trolled baiken, and in rage baiken abandoned General Discussion.

Little food was saddened at the loss of Lord baiken and vowed to cleanse General Discussion of ignorance. However, little food was weak and not well-versed in Nasuverse, she could not silence the trolls.

So food lurked, and discovered the Noble Phantasm known as "Sauce".

With "Sauce", food slain many trolls and became almost as powerful as Lord baiken of yesteryears. However, then food met mike the Waifu-Worshiper, the Dark One.

The purple taint of the Dark One was unable to corrupt young food, for she was strong. She flew the banner and waged war with the Dark One in the name of the King. She fought for the sanctum known as General Discussion.

The Dark One was defeated, for that, young food was joyous. However, she paid a price dear.

To fight the Dark One, she traded her innocence for a venomous power known as "Troll" from the grey one known as Burststar.

The power of "Troll" corrupts, so even in victory, young food was reduce to the shadow of her former self. In rage, Lord arai cast food down from the pantheon before disappearing himself.

Now, you have the amorphous wretch known as food, filled with rage and spite and still continues her one-woman crusade. Even though the Dark one was defeated, the leaderless Waifu-Worshipers remained. They are also becoming smarter, swaying the opinion of the masses against food.

Many view food as nonsensical, and only kept her around because she still possessed the Noble Phantasm known as "Sauce".

Emiya Shirou, why? Because amazingly... ==" I can connect myself with him easier as I have similar problems. In fact, it is surprisingly similar to most aspects in my life...

2. Your least favourite character and why.
Hmm... obviously almost none... but Zouken and Shinji, both of them are bastards although they still have some good points IMHO... but still...

3. Favourite quote or line(s).
Almost all of Archer's quote in UBW and the infamous:
"Iku ze Eiyuu Ou, bukki no chouzo wa jyuppun ka?" in UBW XD

4. Scene or moment that made you think.
Every single scene in FSN from Fate to HF *unless filler scenes made me think

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.
UBW good Ending, lol, Rin is such a greedy girl lol she wants both Emiya (Archer and Shirou) and Saber at the same time

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
UBW True End "Epilogue" : ANSWER
This scene seriously gave a huge impact on my life... I even found a glimpse of insight and enlightenment from this scene...
UBW Scene Archer vs Shirou
HF Scene Illya's last appearance to save Shirou in HF Good End (although I hate HF good end)

7. Your favourite pairing(s).
Shirou/Saber nuff said

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
Zouken/True Assassin

9. A character you can relate to the most.
Emiya Shirou, as I have explained earlier, I lead a similar life to him (not completely similar but similar enough)

10. Favourite Command Symbolís design.
Emiya Shirou's command symbol

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.
Hmm, Rider... She got my full respect in HF definitely and Kotomine MOTHERFUCKING Kirei because he's badarse

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.
Probably none...

13. Favourite Master.
Emiya Shirou

14. Favourite Servant.
Archer, then Saber, then Gilgamesh

15. Favourite team.
Shirou/Rin, Shirou is *cough *cough... Rin's familiar right? lol

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.
Saber Alter death... HF Normal End (but I still love the sensation), HF True End (Cause of Shirou's choice to abandon his ideal... I feel like he's betraying his own self), Illya's Death in any route

17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.
UBW True End Epilogue (Archer's final Answer)
HF True End (although I hate Shirou's change of determination)
Epilogue (The Last Episode)
When Shirou beats Archer in UBW (well, I know Archer was dying at that time but I felt relieved to know that Shirou's path was not wrong after all)

18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.
Illya's Death nuff said... She deserves a route...

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
I'd love to have either Saber Class or Archer Class

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.
Unlimited Blade Works => Do you have enough weapons at disposal?
and Avalon

21. A character you would shag.
Illyasviel XD XD XD and Saber... probably...

22. A character you would hug.
Illyasviel nuff said

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
Junichi Suwabe... his cynical laughter in UBW had a serious impact for me... It felt like as if he was laughing at me and criticised my life as well...

24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
Emiya Vs King of Heroes... At that time, Shirou matured to be a MAN. He managed to beat the King of Heroes even though he needed CIS and PIS...

25. Most tragic death.
HF Normal End, Shirou's Death after he used his last projection to destroy the grail...

26. Most disturbing scene.
Shinji tried to rape Sakura... fuq u shinji

27. Unpopular opinion.
Hmm... Shirou is not a dumbarse and he's not a sucker even in fate route... He only did what he believed was right. That was simply it. He was not GAR in the beginning but he had proven himself to be worthy... Fate Route is not as bad as it seems... It's not really the weakest route in FSN either... It just suffers to be the first route in the VN so it needs to do several boring introduction and background story... that's all

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
None, I like the way FSN it is...

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
Emiya Shirou definitely... I want to know the burden of a body made out of swords for real... That's going to satisfy me.

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
Every single scene in FSN is unot unforgettable... however, I believe Archer vs Shirou scene is my most unforgettable scene.

1. Your favourite character and why.
Ryougi Shiki. Her personalities are just really refreshing. Never seen a character like that, plus she is a badass.

2. Your least favourite character and why.
This is a tough one, but probably Zouken, because he is a major asshole. At least you can feel bad for Kotomine, and at least Gilgamesh is cool.

3. Favourite quote or line(s).
Azaka: Punchi~
Shirou: Trace On
Archer: UBW chant
Kotomine: Engurish prayer at the end of Fate Zero
Ryougi Shiki: As long as it is alive, I can even kill God.
Araya and Touko's final dialogue.

4. Scene or moment that made you think.
The 8th OVA dialogue of Kara no Kyoukai. It was pretty deep...

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.
The scene in Carnival Phantasm when Sasaki appeared in the Fuyuki Grand Prix and kept calling the Ryuudou Temple his bro.

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
Honestly, the last episode of Kara no Kyoukai almost made me tear up, because I didn't really want to finish the whole series up. Thankfully another OVA is coming up.

7. Your favourite pairing(s).
Rider X Sakura
Ryougi X Tomoe
Ryougi X Azaka

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
Zouken X Tonami

9. A character you can relate to the most.
Enjou Tomoe, mostly because he seems to be the character people can usually relate to.

10. Favourite Command Symbol’s design.
Bazett's Symbol

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.
It varies, but most probably Kerry. I didn't think I was going to like him much, but season 2 sure changed that around.

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.
Technically, Archer at a certain point in ubw. (When he captures Rin) But when he comes back and saves Shirou, he redeems himself in my eyes.

13. Favourite Master.
Emiya Shirou

14. Favourite Servant.
This one is a bit tough. A tie between Archer, Sasaki, and Rider.

15. Favourite team.
Enjou Tomoe and Ryougi Shiki

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.
When Enjou Tomoe died. The Heaven's Feel normal end.

17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.
The final scene in 7th Kara no Kyoukai OVA when Ryougi Shiki and Kokutou Mikiya walk away together.

18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.
Pretty much the final scenes of every type-moon story, since I did not want them to end.

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class (http://forums.nrvnqsr.com/#) would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
I would probably want an Archer class servant. Most of them appear pretty OP, plus that far sight. As for heroic spirit, probably Ryougi for the lulz.

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.
Technically UBW, since it might count as one. Literally, Kanshou & Bakuya

21. A character you would shag.
Ciel/Rider

22. A character you would hug.
Ryougi Shiki

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
Sakamoto Maaya. The way she changes her voice with each diff Ryougi personality was pretty good.

24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
Various. All of Ryougi Shiki's fights, Emiya Shirou's fights, and Tohno Shiki's fights are all my favorite, usually because they beat pretty difficult odds.

25. Most tragic death.
Definitely Enjou Tomoe for me.

26. Most disturbing scene.
When Diarmuid ends up dying through stabbing himself. I felt pretty bad that he blamed Saber for that.

27. Unpopular opinion.
Archer (EMIYA) could beat Gilgamesh in a straight up fight

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
I would probably change the fate of Diarmuid since I honestly feel bad for him having an aweful death. If I had to make it fair, I'll give him a more Cuul (pun intended) death and have him at least go down injuring
someone/respecting Saber again.

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
Tohno Shiki when he is living his calm, peaceful moments in life with everyone he loves/cares about.

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
The fight between Ryougi Shiki and Araya Souren. I was just so hyped when the final battle came.

1. Your favourite character and why.
Kohaku. Her personality struck every chord in me. :(

2. Your least favourite character and why.
Hm. Zouken’s an asshole. My least favourite heroine is probably Rin, because I can’t relate to her at all.

3. Favourite quote or line(s).
"Yes. I liked this Kohaku the best, too."
Shiki’s speech to Roa in Arcueid’s path.

4. Scene or moment that made you think.
Heaven’s Feel, overall, did this to me. The idea of a selfless hero for everyone, or a selfish hero for one.

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.
The time when Akihiko asked Shiki for a sausage roll.

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
Kohaku’s ending tear’d me up. I’m a sucker for broken birds like her and Sakura.

7. Your favourite pairing(s).
Shiki (Tsuki) x Kohaku
Akihiko x Nanako (no known lemons exist!)
Sasaki x Yukika
Kariya x Sakura

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
Shirou x Rin

9. A character you can relate to the most.
Difficult. Shiki Tohno, probably, because I’m lazy like him and enjoy sleeping in. And I’m a total chick magnet. Actually, how did he get that 8-pack without his anemia kicking in every two seconds.

10. Favourite Command Symbol’s design.
Kariya’s.

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.
Sakura. Till, you know, Heaven’s Feel.

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.
Rin. Just cause… I dunno, I didn’t find her personality appealing.

13. Favourite Master.
Kariya.

14. Favourite Servant.
Zero Berserker/Avenger, tie.

15. Favourite team.
Kouichiro and Caster.

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.
Heaven’s Feel Normal End. FML

17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.
Tsukihime Bad End #39, The secret good end. I mean, uh…
Kohaku’s End.

18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.
Nearly all the Tsukihime normal ends (harem ending excluded). Heaven’s Feel just kept going.

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class (http://forums.nrvnqsr.com/) would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
I’d like Jeanne D’Arc to appear as Ruler or w/e. Childhood historical crush ftw. Bazett would be proud.


20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.
Berserker’s NP-transformer.

21. A character you would shag.
Uh. Well. The list. Arcueid, Akiha, Hisui, Kohaku, Hisui&Kohaku, Ren, wait, no stop looking at me like that. I won’t mention Miyako either.Riesbyfe, Sakura, Bazett, Yukika, Makidera, Otoko.

22. A character you would hug.
Kohaku, for a long time. ;_;

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
Just… Tomokazu Seki. 雑種!

24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
Nine Lives Blade Works, “Come on, let’s kill each other!”, This-Is-What-It-Means-To-Kill-Things Time, Tsukihime Bad End #39.

25. Most tragic death.
With Hisui’s normal ending; Akiha’s death.

26. Most disturbing scene.
KIRITSUGU YOU FUCKING BASTARD KILLED THE OLD MAN AND HIS POOR GIRL

27. Unpopular opinion.
Sakura is the best FSN heroine. Shiki is as fast as some Servants(?) but that’s just Nasu trolling me with his Nrvnqsr fight.

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
MAKE HEAVEN’S FEEL HAPPIER aka let’s not kill off Saber and other characters, but that would ruin its effect.

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
Tough. I’d go and hang out with Akihiko as Shiki. That’d be ballsing.

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
THIS IS WHAT IT MEANS TO KILL THINGS, BITCH!

1. Your favourite character and why.
Tough choice, since I like a lot of characters, but I'll go with Shirou. He's a refreshing change from the typical bland and uninteresting main character and I find his personality really interesting.

2. Your least favourite character and why.
Kuzuki. Not because I hate him or anything, but because he is the only characer who effectively bored me nearly every time he was on-screen.

3. Favourite quote or line(s).
Shirou: "—I won't lose to you. I don't mind losing to somebody else. But I can't lose against myself!"

4. Scene or moment that made you think.
Kotomine's backstory. About morality, evil and blablabla.

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.
Rin to Caster: "I thought about it thoroughly, but I've decided to have you eliminated. You're an eyesore, you get in my way, you annoy me, and I hate the way you look. You're like some backwoods hag with that purple robe of yours."

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
The ending of the Fate route, Archer's backstory and his death in UBW (the latter less out of sadness and more because I found the whole scene touching) and Shirou killing Saber in Heaven's Feel, as well as pretty much everything (Shirou sacrificing himself and "It's spring again.") about the Normal End. Although Ilya's sacrifice in HF's True End was pretty sad too.

... Okay, that wasn't only one moment, but I can't choose! xD

7. Your favourite pairing(s).
Saber x Shirou (canon pairings only, because I'd take all day long to list all of my favourites)

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
Sakura x Shirou (canon pairings only, because I'd take all day long to list all of the ones I dislike a lot)

9. A character you can relate to the most.
Shirou.

10. Favourite Command Symbol’s design.
Shirou's.

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.
Sakura. Boring in Fate and UBW, one of my favourite characters in Heaven's Feel.

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.
Rin. Pretty much the opposite of Sakura. One of my favourite characters in Fate and UBW, one of my least favourite characters in Heaven's Feel.

13. Favourite Master.
Shirou

14. Favourite Servant.
Archer

15. Favourite team.
Shirou/Saber

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.
Sakura's backstory, and when she was pleading for sympathy in her fight against Rin.

17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.
Both UBW's Good End and HF's True End.

18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.
The flashback to Shirou's and Kiritsugu's last conversation.

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
Arturia as a Saber-class Servant.

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.
Ea

21. A character you would shag.
Ayako

22. A character you would hug.
Sakura

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
Joji Nakata was amazing as Kotomine (and as pretty much everyone else he ever voiced). The Mapo Tofu scene was hilarious.

24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
Shirou's fight with Archer near the end of UBW. It was exciting, I admired Shirou's resolve and felt bad for both characters. Amazing moment, really.

25. Most tragic death.
Shirou's death in HF's Normal End. It's grating to see how he sacrifices himself, but thinks to himself that he really doesn't want to die and keep his promise.

26. Most disturbing scene.
Zouken devouring that one woman with his worms in HF.

27. Unpopular opinion.
Uh... I don't really know. I like pretty much everyone? xD

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
Sakura's backstory, because it's a very horrible one. Not sure how, but I'd say... blowing the Matou mansion up? XD

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
Kotomine, because I'd make him act like a cheerful Genki Guy for a day. Mostly because I'd find it hilarious.

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
Shirou using UBW against Gil.

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.

The end of Hollow Ataraxia was pretty great.


25. Most tragic death.
See question 6 again


26. Most disturbing scene.
Sakura H scenes


27. Unpopular opinion.
Shinji is the best character, Rin doesn't make a good narrator, female Saber > male Saber, probably more that I'm forgetting


28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
SEE QUESTION 6 AGAIN


29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
Tie Sakura up and stuff her in a closet somewhere, go to Shirou's house and eat her portion of the food. It is a cunning plan that cannot fail.


30. Unforgettable scene or moment.

The Prequels are pretty good, The original trilogy by extension is not that good (Hi ewoks!) Tales of the Abyss is the best tales ever, Persona 4 is better than Persona 3, Strange Journey is SMT IV I don't care if we have a real IV, Nintendo is still the best at hardware, Kingdom Hearts story is not that hard to understand, etc.
I'm sorry but I totally thought it was supposed to be related to fate stay night.
IS THERE A FATE STAY NIGHT DOUBLE TRILOGY?

Been a long time since I played F/SN. It's really hard not to let my preferences be colored by all of the less serious comedy stuff that has been done since (F/HA, comics, drama CDs, Carnival Phantasm, etc)

1. Your favourite character and why.
Rider. She says so little in F/SN but in HF route shows herself to be perhaps the most understanding character.
Lancer is a close second. Sympathetic, honorable, all around good drinking buddy and wingmate.

WAIT WHAT THE FUCK AM I SAYING, TAIGA-SHISHOU OSU!

2. Your least favourite character and why.
Shirou, because typical visual novel teenage bonehead that thinks with his penis 90% of the time. His background and stuff that happens to him is interesting, but still doesn't mean I like the character.

3. Favourite quote or line(s).
Kirei: *omnomnomnomnomnomnomnomnom* "..........................................Want some?" (of this tofu)
Shirou: "HELL NAW"

4. Scene or moment that made you think.
Realizing the exercise in futility that Archer's objective is in UBW, after he explains the Counter Force and his history

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.
Mapo tofu.

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
Gilgamesh blinding and maiming Ilya, who then crawls around feeling for her old pal Herc. :(
Rin sacrificing everything to save her sister.

7. Your favourite pairing(s).
Caster and Kuzuki. Rin and Sakura (as sisters). Assassin and Gate.

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
Shirou and Saber. Not against it on principle, but the writing was just not interesting.

9. A character you can relate to the most.
Zelretch. Does what he can to make the world a better place, but aware of limits and consequences.

10. Favourite Command Symbol’s design.
Not strictly F/SN, but Kiritsugu

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.
Rin. Novelty of tsundere wore off on me many years ago, but she is actually rather agreeable.

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.
Shinji. I expected character development, but he turned out to be a totally flat (though not unsympathetic) character.

13. Favourite Master.
Rin.
If Zero, then Kiritsugu.

14. Favourite Servant.
Gilgamesh
If Zero, then Gil or Lancelot.

15. Favourite team.
Ilya and Berserker because FUCK DA MAGIC POLICE

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.
Gilgamesh killing Ilya and Berserker

17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.
Saber coming to terms with herself and her feelings.

18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.
Gilgamesh killing Ilya and Berserker. Good bye Saber. Sakura growing old.

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
Lancelot as a Saber, or Heracles as an Archer.

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.
Gate of Babylon, obviously

21. A character you would shag.
Go kill yourself.

22. A character you would hug.
Berserker. He seems cuddly.

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
Itou Miki (Fujimura Taiga). In all Tiger Dojo scenes, and her short appearance in UBW movie. She is EVERYTHING that is good about Fate/stay night.

24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
Sakura coming to terms with Rin. She never abandoned her.

25. Most tragic death.
Ilya and Berserker (UBW)

26. Most disturbing scene.
Kirei putting away bowls and bowls of apparently very spicy mapo tofu like nothing. Can you say FIRERRHEA?

27. Unpopular opinion.
All moments involving Shirou and female characters are wastes of valuable reading time.

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
Shirou follows through and succeeds with Mind of Steel. It's the only scene where he truly understands what one must do to prevent a greater loss of life.

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
Gilgamesh. End the war, then take a vacation.

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
Nine Bullet Revolver. Sparks Liner High (yes, like food).

Tried replaying FSN to refresh my memory but couldnít make myself get through it and ended up replaying HA. So screw SN.

1. Your favourite character and why.
Tough choice between Gilgamesh, Kotomine, and Caren. Iíd say Goldie just because heís two characters I like rolled into one (Ko-Gil and adult Gil).

2. Your least favourite character and why.
F/Z Kiritsugu. Itís the very idea of him that I donít like, though, so if he were any other way he wouldnít be Emiya Kiritsugu.

3. Favourite quote or line(s).
ďPorca miseria.Ē

4. Scene or moment that made you think.
Eh, I read Fate for entertainment, not to gain a new perspective on life.

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.
Lancerís Heaven. The entire Caren hanafuda scenario.

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
NoneÖ.?

7. Your favourite pairing(s).
I donít ship, but if I had to pick: Caster and Kuzuki. Or Caren and Avenger.

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
Gil/Saber, because it actually has a sizable population of people who need their brain checked.

9. A character you can relate to the most.
Rin? Only for the ďmakes careless mistakesĒ and ďcranky in the morning,Ē though.

10. Favourite Command Symbolís design.
Kotomineís.

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.
Tokiomi. Illya?

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.
Shirou. Hearing all the praise sung about him as a broken protagonist, I was at first willing to dismiss any antics of his I found annoying. I was disillusioned when they didnít go away, even after the reveal.

13. Favourite Master.
Caren.

14. Favourite Servant.
Either Gil or Avenger.

15. Favourite team.
Caren, Lancer and Ko-Gil.

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.
None? (See Seika's response)

17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.
18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.
Ending of F/HA for both.

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
Diarmuid as Lancer, so that I can make him commit suicide without having him kill me. Then Iíd give up all my Command Seals and get the heck out of Fuyuki.

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.
Enuma Elish, because Last Interlude.

21. A character you would shag.
None.

22. A character you would hug.
Caren.

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
Sawabe, for doing a surprisingly good job of imitating Noriyama (Shirouís) speech patterns when the occasion calls.

24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
That scene with the terrible outfit, despite the terrible outfit. Bonus points for both Gil and Shirou being meta.

25. Most tragic death.
Enkidu.

26. Most disturbing scene.
Seeing those worms animated? I don't know, I don't recall anything particularly disturbing.

27. Unpopular opinion.
FSN is probably my least favorite Fate discounting Apocrypha, which I havenít read enough of to form an opinion.

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
Meh, Iíd leave it the way it is, except maybe to change the entire scenario to the Fate/Kotomine I saw floating around somewhere on BL.

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
Moon Cell.

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
Gil meeting Ko-Gil. In that same scene, Kotomine meeting Caren.

Kotonoha
February 11th, 2013, 05:35 PM

See, I totally see the "Fate/stay night" part of the title. I just don't care. I'll at least limit it to Fate-related titles, since that actually makes things easier for me.

1. Your favourite character and why.
Ugh... No, I refuse to do this. There's just too many and sorting through 'em all would be painful...

2. Your least favourite character and why.
Matou Kariya. He is, without a doubt, the number one most unsalvageable character in the entirety of the Fate franchise.

3. Favourite quote or line(s).
"You're alive... You're alive... You're alive...!"

4. Scene or moment that made you think.
The mapo tofu scene. It made me thing, "... Man, I could really go for some mapo tofu right now." I don't even like spicy food either.

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.
"Let's hide under the bed covers! No one will ever think to look there!"

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
The last coupe scenes with Kiritsugu desperately trying to find survivors in Fate/Zero.

7. Your favourite pairing(s).
Ryuunosuke/Caster

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
Eh.

9. A character you can relate to the most.
Ehh... I'll get back to you on that.

10. Favourite Command Symbol’s design.
You're implying I pay attention to those.

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.
Emiya Kiritsugu.

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.
Can't think of any. If I dislike something, I tend to dislike it to the very end!

13. Favourite Master.
Emiya Shirou.

14. Favourite Servant.
---GUH. ... Ugh... Well... I guess I like Saber (アルトリア). ... And Lancer (Cu Chulainn). And Archer (Emiya Shirou). And Saber (Nero). And Caster (Tamamo no Mae). Rider (Alexander). And Rider (Medusa). And Gilgamesh. And... Okay, I'll shut up.

15. Favourite team.
Emiya Residence Team!

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.
Kiritsugu wading through the burning landscape, desperately trying to find survivors.

17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.
Kiritsugu finding Shirou, and the sheer gratitude he felt upon doing so.

18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.
Guess.

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
Not much interested fan-made Servants.

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.
Boomer-Lancer.

21. A character you would shag.
No.

22. A character you would hug.
Physical intimacy makes me feel uncomfortable so no.

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?


24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
You probably think it's the scene where Kiritsuguwas wading through the desolate post-Grailplosion wasteland and finding Shirou, right?

Well you're wrong. My favourite scene is the part when Shirou inherits Kiritsugu's ideal. Kiritsugu, upon hearing his adopted son's words, is able to pass on with a content expression. Furthermore, just when this happens, it cuts to a scene of Saber, who is bathed in a warm light on the war-torn hill, as if offering her salvation. Obviously, she doesn't hear Shirou's words, and she doesn't even know he exists yet, but still, the symbolism really struck out at me. And to top it all off, just when Shirou states that he'll inherit Kiritsugu's wish, To the Beginning starts playing in the background. A few scenes before, the timer reached "00:00:00". It's as if they had finally reached the starting line. It was a long, arduous journey, but even so, just like the name of the song, everything truly begins here.

Also, to think about it another way, all the despair that had been brought about in Fate/Zero was Urobuchi Gen's doing. However, Emiya Shirou's arrival brings "hope". Since Shirou is the protagonist of Fate/stay night, which was written by Nasu Kinoko, it's almost as if Nasu's Champion had finally arrived to liberate Fate from Urobuchi's vile clutches.

25. Most tragic death.
Ilya's from Unlimited Blade Works.

26. Most disturbing scene.
See my answer to question 25.

27. Unpopular opinion.
To be frank, I don't actually like Fate/Zero all that much. However, at the very least, the last few scenes involving Kiritsugu and Shirou are probably my favourites from the entire franchise.
I also never cared for Fate/Prototype. Also, Sparks Liner High is overrated. Also, even though Heaven's Feel True End isn't my super-most favourite end, I don't think the Normal End is that great either. Also, I don't really care about Fate/Apocrypha.

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
I'd give Fuji-nee more scenes.

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
HAH. Heck no. I ain't no masochist.

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
See my answer to question 24.

1. Kotomine. He owned assassin and zouken by himself. What more needs to be said?
2. Obvious answer, but Zouken.
3. "People tend to hate those similar to themselves. Everything your father did, did nothing but annoy me. In fact, I'd imagine it is quite like the hate you are feeling for me." -Kotomine Kirei
4. Kirei talking about Kiritsugu with Shirou
5. Shirou jumping out the third floor of the Einzbern mansion to make himself look cool
6. Heaven's Feel normal ending
7. Kirei X Sehai-kun
8. Shinji X anyone
9. Kuzuki, Shirou or Kirei. Can't decide
10. Ryunosuke's:
http://th04.deviantart.net/fs71/200H/f/2012/123/a/c/command_spell___uryu_ryunosuke_by_murzac-d4yfugz.png
11. Shirou, as each route progressed
12. Honestly can't think of one
13. Rin, since she's the only one who knows what she's doing beside Ilya and Kirei.
14. Archer or Kojiro. A badass normal triumphing amongst gods always appeals to me.
15. Gilgamesh and Kirei.
16. "You are strong, Berserker"
17. Mapu Tofu
18. Shirou rejecting the Tofu
19. Frank Sinatra as Archer
20. Ea
21. Rape worms
22. Issei, because you know he likes it.
23. Joji Nakata. All of his scenes, but especially when he's rejoicing with Shirou
24. Too many to choose from, but the whole Shirou vs Kirei fight in HF true ending probably stands out the most
25. Ilya, when Gilgamesh pulls a Kano on her
26. The woman getting devoured alive by Zouken
27. I think the moment when Kuzuke stopped Saber's blade was awesome
28. Kojiro being able leave the gate and not being a fake servant. He'd actually have a wish and would go on to beat every servant in the war and attain the status of ultimate bad ass normal
29. Shirou, the day he defeated Gilgamesh. The scene was completely unbelievable, but beating the most OP character in Fate would be a crowning moment of awesome.
30. Kirei owning assassin and zouken:

Polly
February 17th, 2013, 09:23 AM
Yeah, I'm gonna screw the rules as well and include Zero. Because I can and because they are two halves of the same story.

1. Your favourite character and why.
Saber, obviously. She's an admirable tragic heroine and I like strong female characters. AND she's King Arthur ( I'm a sucker for mythology in general, and Arthurian legend is one of my faves ).
I never actually thought I'll end up liking a character who's a selfless idealist. I guess she cured me of my cynicism a bit.
Iskandar, Kirei, Gilgamesh and Rin are no. 2-5 respectively.

2. Your least favourite character and why.
I guess Shinji because he's a one-dimensional prick who should be thrown in the worm-pit.
Zouken is right behind him, it's just that Shinji is also spineless and annoying.

3. Favourite quote or line(s).
"I ask you - are you my Master?".
"Food, sex, sleep and war. You must enjoy those to the fullest."
"I see. You're the kind of guy who masturbates to the girl he likes."
And many, many more...

4. Scene or moment that made you think.
The entire series. I like the Fate series a lot because it offers some good food for thought.

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.
The mapo tofu scene in HF.
Taiga's reaction when Shirou introduces Saber in Fate.
Rider storming the Einzbern castle in Zero to invite Saber to a drinking contest.
And of course... the sex scenes.

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
I don't cry, but many scenes moved me a lot. Being in Nasuverse is suffering.

7. Your favourite pairing(s).
I'm really, really not into the whole pairings thing unless they're canon.
But if I had to list some, it'd be Saber and Iri, Fake Assassin and the temple, and of course, Kirei and Gilgamesh. Because yuetsu.

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
Probably Gil and Saber, unless it's for the lulz and Gil is all submissive and stuff. Carnival Phantasm style.

9. A character you can relate to the most.
Probably Rin, but without the tsundere-ness. Saber in the close second place and there's a bit of Kirei in me too.

10. Favourite Command Symbol’s design.
Kiritsugu's. Kayneth has a pretty good one too.

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.
None really. I can't dislike a character "at first" because I don't really know anything about them.
I guess Waver would be the closest to this, being all clueless and oblivious at the start.

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.
Kiritsugu. Actually, it's not that I actively dislike him, I just don't particularly like him either. I thought he'd be my favourite character when I started watching Zero, but it ended up differently. It's as Saber said after team Lancer was eliminated - he is a man to be pitied. That is all.

13. Favourite Master.
In Zero, either Kirei or Waver, I can't decide.
In FSN, Rin.

14. Favourite Servant.
Saber.
Followed closely by Iskandar. Gilgamesh comes third. Actually, I really liked all of the Zero servants, even the poor Assassin.
FSN servants were far inferior and less interesting to me by comparison. The ones I liked the most were Saber and Gil ( who were reprising their roles from Zero at that ). Archer wasn't bad I guess, but there's a limit to incompetence in executing his plan to kill Shirou that can be compensated by his GARness. But I like SN Lancer in Carnival Phantasm.

15. Favourite team.
Team Rider in Zero.
Team Saber in FSN.

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.
None. While I can and do emotionally invest myself in stories I particularly like and connect myself with the characters, I don't do it to the degree of allowing the story to "break my heart". And I'm emotionally very resilient anyway.

17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.
The last scene in Zero when Shriou and Kiritsugu talk for the last time and then they cut it to Saber who raises her head and stands up as she's illuminated by warm light that comes through the clouds over Camlann. Because hope.

and, most of all:
The knight keeps watching over her figure.
The king that he wished for.
A lonely king that was seen off by just one knight.
But--her face is what he wished for.
A peaceful sleep.
In her last moments, the king has obtained peace that she has never been able to obtain.
He was just happy about that fact.
The knight thanks the someone who has given her peace and proudly watches over his king.

18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.
Irisviel's death in Zero. Kiritsugu's flashback-episodes.
Ilya's death in UBW.

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
Saber - Arturia. Not because I like her as a character but because she's versatile, powerful, loyal as long as you don't trample over her honour, and Avalon would keep me from getting killed.
Gil is a cheat I'd like to have, but I doubt we'd be very compatible. Either of the Lancers would suit me fine, but their E rank Luck is...well...

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.
Excaliblast. Because fairy dust.

21. A character you would shag.
No.

22. A character you would hug.
Don't like hugging. If I did, then the entire Zero cast minus Gil. Because they need it after a treatment by Urobutcher.

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
Zero Caster's VA. Every scene. The guy's hillarious.
Kirei's VA is delicious too. And he's Alucard.

24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
Saber's inner turmoil and struggle on day 15 in the Fate route, when Kirei offers her the Grail in exchange for killing Shirou, because that's when she becomes the proud King of Knights once again, overcomes her weaknesses and doubts, makes peace with her life and the outcome of her actions, and the next day kicks some King of Heroes' arse.

25. Most tragic death.
Saber Alter in HF.

26. Most disturbing scene.
Sakura in the pit of worms in Zero.

27. Unpopular opinion.
Eeeh... which ones are popular and which unpopular? "Controversial" might be a better term.
I guess it'd be that HF route is really not all that good and epic as many people make it out to be. There's some very good stuff there, but also plenty of crap. It's still good, but it gets overrated because people mostly only remember the epic finale that covers only the last two days or so.

And the Last Episode is... I don't like it because I believe it's OOC for both Shirou and particularly Saber, and goes against the point of their relationship in the Fate route ( I could elaborate further but I won't do it here. )

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
Have Saber and Diarmuid fight their duel to the end properly and give Lancer a peaceful, honourable death at her hands.

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
No idea.

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
Too many to count.
The unveiling of the Noble Phantasms of the three kings in Zero, the rage of Diarmuid, Kiritsugu shooting down Natalia, Kirei VS Kiritsugu in the Bat-cave, Kiritsugu saving Shirou, naked Gilgamesh, Saber and Shirou defeating Gil and Kirei in the Fate route, Shriou VS Archer in UBW, Sparks Liner High and Shirou VS Kirei in HF...

Since Shirou is the protagonist of Fate/stay night, which was written by Nasu Kinoko, it's almost as if Nasu's Champion had finally arrived to liberate Fate from Urobuchi's vile clutches.


Yes, because Nasu had no creative input in Zero and everything going to shit wasn't foreshadowed HARD in F/SN (???)

Polly
February 17th, 2013, 09:48 AM
Yeah, I don't like how people give Gen so much flak for the grimdarkness of Zero when it's made pretty much clear in FSN that it was a real, bloody war between proper Masters and monstrous Servants that went tits up in the end because of the Sehai-kun.

I3uster
February 17th, 2013, 09:50 AM
I don't get why he gets so much flak for grimdarkness from people that like Nasu of all things. They probably are best buddies because they get equally hard drinking your tears.

Polly
February 17th, 2013, 10:00 AM
That's because Nasu wrote three different stories for people to pick the one they like, and he gave happy fan-pandering endings ( knh.... UBW Good...khm! ), so people tend to forgive him for all the grimdark shit we had to endure for the most time. Urobuther only wrote a single story with a single outcome so there's less space for maneuvering.

Sure it does. If they really wanted me to imagine Jack dressed up as a space stripper, they would have made it a manga to make that fact completely inescapable. They would have also paid for the surgery to give me a visual imagination, so that I'm capable of actually seeing images of the characters as I read instead of just vague, shadowy "feelings" of characters.

But they didn't do either of those things, ergo they must agree with me. Checkmate, QED.

2. Your least favourite character and why.
I'm unsure...

3. Favourite quote or line(s).
Yes, I saw it over and over... Meaningless massacres.. Meaningless suffering.. Meaningless happiness! I was forced to watch it all, Even when I refused to look, it surrounded me. That isn't what I wished for! I didn't become a Guardian for this!

Archer, making a GTFO of the Counter Guardians.

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).

I think what he liked was Enkidu's spirit, and the way he struggled. The way he related to Enkidu was through their constant fighting, so Gilgamesh opposes Saber like a schoolyard bully pulling the hair of a girl he likes because he wants to see that same spirit out of her. That is why when she actually gives in during the Unlimited Codes ending he loses interest.

I always presumed it was because he knew she was going to self-destruct regardless of what he did and he just wanted to give her a worthy audience(aka himself). So its sort of like having a good toy and breaking it, so you are the only one who uses it and not letting anyone "unworthy" use it.

DezoPenguin
February 18th, 2013, 08:40 PM
I might as well give this a shot. Having not played the VN, I'll add in Zero answers due to my flawed knowledge of UBW and HF.
1. Your favourite character and why.
Archer. The man projects an unmistakable aura of snarky badass cool, then proceeds to actually back it up with history, backstory, and in-combat abilities rather than being a poser.

2. Your least favourite character and why.
Shinji. Because unlike Zouken or Gil or Kirei, who are fun villains that help make the story good despite their evil, Shinji is a pustulent bit of scum that should be scraped off people's shoes, and I hate that the cast doesn't seem to comprehend that. Seriously, Rin, have Saber just take out AM without risking your life to save Shinji, 'k? Particularly since he was about to rape you had Lancer not intervened? He's a hair ahead of Tokiomi, since there's a slight possibility that he somehow didn't know what the Matou magic was, even though I'm convinced he wouldn't have cared if he did know.

3. Favourite quote or line(s).
"I am the bone of my sword..." So sue; I'm obvious.

4. Scene or moment that made you think.
Kotomine telling Shirou that a wish to save people was a wish for people to be in danger. Of course, the conclusion of my thinking was that Kotomine was full of it.

5. Scene or moment that made you laugh.
Rin punching Shinji in the nose. Also Gil telling Tokiomi that he wouldn't dirty Ea by zapping Cthulhu with it.

6. Scene or moment that made you cry.
None, really. The end of UBW when Archer faded out with Shirou's face came closest.

7. Your favourite pairing(s).
Canon: Shirou/Sakura; Kerry/Iri; Caster/Kuzuki
Ship-Teased: Rin/Archer
Pulled From Nether Orifice: Archer/Rider

8. Your least favourite pairing(s).
Kerry/Maiya. Bad writing there, and if they'd left it in the F/Z anime I think it would have gravely cheapened the impact of the final scene with Kiritsugu and AM!Iri

9. A character you can relate to the most.
Waver

10. Favourite Command Symbolís design.
Shirou's

11. A character you disliked at first but grew to like later.
Caster. Sadly romantic backstory melts heart of cynical lawyer and causes overlooking of evil in-story bitchiness.

12. A character you liked at first but grew to dislike later.
Saber. Like someone else said first, it's not so much that I grew to dislike her, but more that I felt rather meh. And seeing her in F/Z embracing the side of chivalric stupidity at a win-in-all-costs war and repeating her foolish desire to not be King of Britain despite the fact that she did such a good job of it (under the reasonably crapsack conditions) to become a hero that echoes down through the ages just made it worse.

13. Favourite Master.
Rin.

14. Favourite Servant.
Archer. See #1 above. Close second-place tie for Lancelot and Rider.

15. Favourite team.
Waver/Iskandar. In F/SN, Rin/Archer.

16. Scene or moment that broke your heart.
Caster and Kuzuki's death in the manga.

17. Scene or moment that made you feel happy.
The credits rolling on the last episode of F/Z with Waver still alive. Any time bad things happen to Shinji (you go, Illya! :) ) or Lancelot gets Gil's panties in a twist.

18. Scene or moment that made you feel sad.
Archer's death fighting Berserker.Tokiomi's death, because it wasn't painful enough.

19. If you were chosen as a Master, what Class would you like as a Servant and what Heroic Spirit would you like to see to appear.
I would prefer to be in a different city entirely if a Holy Grail War broke out, but if I was chosen I would prefer an Archer since my chosen strategy would be similar to Kiritsugu's and Independent Action and combat pragmatism would be a useful aid in that (particularly if I didn't have all of Kerry's assistants). Assassin would be my second choice, for similar reasons. If picking from any Heroic Spirit shown in the show...probably Medea (despite the Class issues) as the attitude and lack of any individual side agendas (such as EMIYA's) would be most compatible. That answer might change depending on whether the Grail is the functional kind or the corrupted one, though.

20. Favourite Noble Phantasm.
UBW, if we're counting that. If not, Knight of Honor. In F/SN only, Avalon, for showing that even in a world where Excalibur can level castles and Eldritch Abominations, someone read the original stories and noted that the sheath was still the more significant item.

21. A character you would shag.
If I were not married, Rider oh so very much. Also Dark Sakura if she let the world live two more years.

22. A character you would hug.
Sakura.

23. A voice actor/actress that made an impression on you. In which scene?
Junichi Suwabe whenever Archer breaks out UBW. Laughable Engrish is not supposed to sound that awesome.
24. Your favourite scene or moment and why.
What does it say about me that I can't really pin this down? Maybe the aircraft duel between Lance and Gil in F/Z for its sheer levels of awesome? The kind of thing that Moczo would have written.

25. Most tragic death.
Caster's.

26. Most disturbing scene.
Kariya finding out after making his deal with Zouken that Sakura's already started her "training."

27. Unpopular opinion.
The anime, while obviously inferior to the experience to playing the VN, is not the worst pile of suck to come along since Shinji.

28. If you could change the fate of any character, would you? How?
I'd let Caster and Kuzuki have a happy ending where they could just enjoy a normal life as a married couple together without any assassinations, soul-sucking, or any of that. And I would have Tokiomi's death be much, much slower and more excruciatingly painful to the extent that by the time he's done the physical and more importantly psychological damage inflicted upon him would make Kariya's suffering look like paradise by comparison. At the very least, he should get to sympathetically "enjoy" every rape that his daughter suffered, preferably with his own family replacing Zouken and Shinji in his own mind.

29. If you could change a place with any character for a day, who would it be and why (and what would you do).
Truthfully, I wouldn't change places with any of these people unless you paid me quite a lot of money. Maybe Kirei, so I could arrange for Tokiomi's fate as above?

30. Unforgettable scene or moment.
Far too many to count.

since there's a slight possibility that he somehow didn't know what the Matou magic was, even though I'm convinced he wouldn't have cared if he did know.

Although this is admittedly from the hanafuda game, when Tokiomi saw that Kariya had brought Sakura with him on his quest for the Holy Grail Hot Spring, thus exposing her to danger (as much danger as there could be in a comedy scenario, anyways), Tokiomi decided that he was going to have her adopted by the Edelfelt instead.

More specifically, the whole "save absolutely everyone" ideal that Shirou gets all fired up over in UBW.

It wasn't "save everyone (unless they are not mai waifu)"

And I'm saying that it should be "save absolutely everyone ('exception: Shinji')." :) Because any ideal that says, "I should put myself at personal risk to save the life of Shinji Matou" is a bad ideal. And since Shirou's actually fighting Gilgamesh at the time, it was actually, "I shall have the woman I love put herself at personal risk to save the life of Shinji Matou," which isn't an ideal, it's a case for the commissioners in lunacy. (That said, it's actually Rin's decision to go slogging into the Grail to rescue Shinji that I'm questioning, not Shirou's ideals--Shinji is at that point literally the last person in the world that she actually knows whom she'd want to save, after the things he's done (just going by UBW and her actual knowledge therein, forget about the actual list of his sins). Either she's doing it because she has genuinely decided to adopt Shirou's ideals for herself on a permanent basis or she's doing it because her boyfriend wants her to, neither of which option gives me happy fluffy feelings about Rin.)

(On Tokiomi, my hatred is mildly irrational...but honestly, hanafuda games aside, either he did that to Sakura knowingly, in which case he is a monster worse than Zouken, or he has no clue, in which case he is woefully ignorant of the nature of the Matou family in a city which is in his care.)

And seeing her in F/Z embracing the side of chivalric stupidity at a win-in-all-costs war and repeating her foolish desire to not be King of Britain despite the fact that she did such a good job of it (under the reasonably crapsack conditions) to become a hero that echoes down through the ages just made it worse.

Yeah, I'm gonna play Saber's lawyer here a bit. Not because I think you should worship the ground she walks on, far from it - there's plenty of good characters in Fate to pick your favourite and I understand that people have different tastes and appreciate different character traits more than others, and respect their different preferences when it comes to favourite characters.
I'll be the lawyer because it irks me when people dismiss characters for the wrong reasons. This goes for any character, not just my personal favourites.

First of, "embracing the side of chivalric stupidity in F/Z"?
Her chivalry was there in F/SN too, are you forgetting how she wanted to give her name to Fake Assassin after he introduced himself? And other stuff that I won't list. If anything, it wouldn't make sense if she weren't like that. Are you getting the chronological order wrong?
Also, while her principles of chivalry might be misplaced in the cynical modern world ( which tells more about modern world than it does about her , really ), are you honestly telling me that King Arthur should just throw away the principles that she lived by her whole life just because some muppet that calls himself her Master, and yet doesn't find her worthy enough to even talk to, thinks that that isn't the best way to win the Grail War?

Second - "win-at-all-costs war?"
Since when is this so? Kiritsugu and the likes of him that are desperate enough for the Grail will certainly do whatever it takes, but there are those who think differently. Even mages like Kayneth abide by the code of honour between the mages. It's only after Kerry crippled him that the man resorted to extreme measures like killing Risei.
It baffles me particularly that you think entities like Heroic Spirits should prioritise winning over everything else. Saber's circumstances are special, but she's still a Heroic Spirit, and all of them have became ones because they managed to pull off extraordinary feats using their own powers. Why should they compromise the very things that made them heroes for the sake of the Grail? Lancer openly states that he doesn't need the Grail, Rider prefers shopping and drinking with McKenzies over the War, and Saber puts the safety of her master Iri first, and is willing to die and squander this chance to win the Grail if that's what it takes to protect her master and keep her promise.
Don't view it from such a narrow perspective, the War is certainly not win-at-all-costs for the Servants.

Third - "repeating her wish"?
Zero comes before SN, so if anything, it's in SN that she's repeating her wish. Since Zero is a prequel, she's doomed by canon to not find any answers there. Again, narrow minded thinking.

And lastly, she doesn't "wish to become a hero that echoes down through the ages". On the contrary - getting her wish fulfilled would mean that her existence is erased from history. She wouldn't become a Heroic Spirit, but a Counter Guardian. I don't know if she knew fully what it meant, or if she thought, like Archer, that she'd save people, or if she gave it any thought at all.
From what I understand, her contract with Alaya went like: "Give me the power to vie for the Holy Grail. If I win it and it grants me my wish, you can have my soul and do whatever you want with me." Hardly a wish to go around playing hero.

In conclusion, you're giving her the flak where you shouldn't. If you think her chivalry is misplaced, fine. If you think her introverted personality is boring, fine. If you prefer cynical people over those who fight for ideals, fine. Each to their own. But don't badmouth a character just because you don't agree with their beliefs, and don't make judgements without applying some proper perspective first. Peace.

What you need to consider about Rin is that despite her whole "be magus, be heartless for VICTORY" upbringing telling her otherwise, she hates letting people die, so she wouldn't be okay with weird sociopathic revenge-killings on defenceless people either. Basically I know killing people you don't like is sometimes romanticized in fiction as this totally normal thing, but in reality it's... not, and it would make absolutely no sense for Shirou or Rin to be okay with it. I get if you mean it in the "I wish this character I didn't like would just die" sense but if you're actually arguing that the story should have been written that way... nope nope

Re: Tokiomi, yes, it is pretty explicit that he does not know about Zouken's methods. The reason for this is that Zouken intentionally hides it so people don't suspect (remember he even managed to keep the basement hidden from someone who lived in the house for 14 years). We've argued about ten thousand times here about whether Tokiomi should have broken into Zouken's house to see what his secret magecraft techniques were on the off chance that they might have been worm-rape-based even though he had no reason to suspect that (hey, it's not my position), but nobody thinks he actually knows what happened to Sakura.


I thought the point of the route was Shirou reaffirming his ideal to be a hero of justice not in the wide-eyed naivete of the Fate route but in awareness and acceptance of the potential (and/or inevitable) costs of such a thing?
Not really, more like he knows that realistically he can't save everyone but he's going to strive to do so no matter what regardless, because Fuck The Ideal Police.

If you want to talk to him, he's on #notes right now.

And he's acting like a total dick to everyone. Just like old times!

Of my post: "Shinji argument, Tokiomi argument, oh god this just isn't the same as when Mike was here ;_;"

I assume he must have heard about it by now.

Man, that scene was great, I haven't laughed out loud so hard in a long time.

Was that Kirei and Kerry that apprehended him? "He committed every crime possible in a country under the rule of law". And that music! MUAHAHAHA!
Best part of the entire series.
