    I was pretty surprised when I went to Wales actually, there were a lot of people speaking Welsh.

    But yeah, it's a lovely place.

    Ah, the price of a metropolitan society.

    Given the history of the British isles and their native cultures spending centuries and centuries fighting every other invading culture from Rome to the Vikings to preserve their own way of life, I suppose that kind of cultural wasting would be seen poorly by Arturia, even if the culture that eventually "conquered" hers was an amalgam that included other locals and even some pieces of her own.

    I guess its just hard to imagine how an ancient figure like Arthur would feel about modern constructs like the Nation-State and Post-Industrial social models. I mean, what she fought for isn't dead and buried like some civilizations ended up, but it didn't exactly win the proverbial war, or even survive very intact.

    Welsh has been making a comeback in Wales these days, I've heard.

    The amount of Welsh speakers have actually been going up for some reason.

    It's an interesting phenomena.

    But more on the point, of course Arturia would be upset.

    The people she fought against won and took over all of her nation's former territory and eventually drove them back into a solitary corner of an island that was once fully theirs.

    I don't know about that. Apart from place names and a small amount of Welsh culture, there really isn't much left of her country. It's deader than the Native Americans in terms of culture, in terms of biology I suppose its pretty intact.

    Does the imaginary trigger in magecraft have to do with the person who taught you, somehow?

    We know of Rin whose is heart being stabbed by a dagger, which sounds a lot like Kotomine(and/or Tokiomi), and Shirou's gunhammer which definitely sounds like Kiritsugu.

    I'm not sure if this has been answered somewhere already but what exactly does being a Planet Terminal mean? Does Merem have some kind of weird connection with Gaia that gives him the Demonization ability? Or does the term Planet Terminal have nothing to do with the planet itself?

    I wonder what Sakura's is like.
    He never sleeps. He never dies.

    Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight.

    Gee, I wonder what Sakura associates with the practice of magecraft. I can't possibly imagine an experience that we know is directly related to the opening of her circuits.

    Who knows really, it might not even be something sexual.
    Tokiomi got her element, and we know that takes some magical investigation, so it might have been done there before the crest implementation in the Matous.

    After all, her spell incantations aren't in Russian, her magical knowledge might stem further back than the Matous.

    Ehhh the Matou could be deutschophiles as much as the Tohsaka. Never hear anyone from the family other than Sakura chanting so not really anyway to make a conclusion on the language they use. But since most folks seem to use something other than their native tongue, it would be a pretty easy assumption it wouldn't be Ruskie.

    Unless I'm misremembering, Rin was able to divine Shirou's element without having him run od through his circuits and that last bit is highly unlikely for the same reasons she went to the Matou in the first place. No training two heirs.

    We don't know what she did exactly, besides using sage and asking questions.
    And you don't have to train two heirs, but they obviously have to find out that she was a superchild somehow. Otherwise there is no need to panic about sending her if they don't know she is special in some way.

    @Kelnish
    Nah, Zouken is all for Japan, which is strange, because his rival/sweetheart is German made.

    I'd believe that she was emulating Rin more than them being otakus of German culture.

    What if EA was in fact EA. As in Electronic Arts.

    Does Gil have to buy DLC for its full power?

    Not in Heaven's Feel, which is when she diagnosed his element.
