    . . . Of course, I've recently learned that the company behind Kantai Collection also has a gender-flipped series with sword boys - and a storyline suspiciously similar to F/GO . . .
    Paying $2 a minute? What horrible data plan are YOU on? Besides, I don't think you have to. Can't you just play when connected to wifi? Also, what do you mean by "reintegrating with the TMverse?

    Well, since things in TYPE-MOON have expanded quite a bit since I started working on the Works a decade or so ago, and my last story was based in Final Fantasy X, I thought a more canon-based tale to take advantage of that would be nice. The fact that Chaldea, to an extent, mirrors the Works' mission statement helps, too.

    . . . Besides, Kurai still needs a Nasuverse character to partner with. Nero is still my favourite choice (others include - in no particular order - Miyu Edelfelt, Anastasia Romanov, Mashu Kyrielight and Jeanne d'Arc), but we've already done a Fate/Extra story; while it might be interesting to see how the events of Fate/Extella would play out in that universe, I dislike stealing somebody else's work. Ergo, the setting of Grand Order is the easiest explanation as to how they come into contact.

    I presume you're not doing Extella with Altera's route? If I recall correctly it gets weird... really weird.

    Yeah, more than a little bit . . . Mind you, that scenario would be ideal as a sequel to "Melancholy of One": after all, Shiki technically "won" the Grail War, but didn't fulfill the Moon Cell's purpose for holding it. Since that's the case, either it needs to hold another one, to find a "ruler," or Kurai gets latched onto as a stand-in.

    . . . Meaning, basically, that by the Moon Cell's logic, since he comes from the same place as Shiki, obviously he holds the same potential for solving the problem of the Umbral Star . . . And that Servant was that red one, right . . . ?

    Which reminds me, Kieran, did you ever figure out what your character was going to be? I think we've got about 8 archetypes now ranging from a ship to Kamen rider.

    Actually, Vigilantia, Kamen Rider's my idea.

    For those that don't necessarily care if my fics aren't all Type-Moon related.




    Hmm... this is a bit of a surprise these days.

    An archive of my works on the forum that's pretty accurate.




    Note that I don't wish to be seen as an idiot any longer. I can't always promise better works than before, but I can sure as hell try, alright?

    Not quite what he meant; I was, at one point, playing around with a "Kaleid Liner" idea - the shonen counterpoint to "Prisma Illya's" magical girls. I was going to have him go after the "Forbidden" Class Cards: Avenger, Ruler, Shielder, Alter Ego, Moon Cancer, Beast and Foreigner . . .

    . . . And no, I'm still trying to sort that out. Part of it, I'm hoping, can be resolved if and when I can decide on a partner; that way, I can pick something appropriate to match. Certain combinations, for example, don't work - if I went the simplest route and allowed Kurai to keep his druid powers, he'd likely clash with Nero, as she ordered them exterminated during her reign (historically, at least). On the other hand, if I went back to the Lunar Exalt idea, she'd make an ideal Solar . . .

    ...okay, point. I should've remembered that, come to think of it.

    Also, to be sure, I plan to really rework the system I used to randomize my character generation system for this setting. I'm going to be posting it again here either while I'm on vacation (starting tomorrow) or after I get back (starting the day after I get back [I get back on the 13th]).

    Hopefully, things will look up for me to do this while I'm on vacation, so... I'll see if I can't keep you posted.

    ...so much for that. I couldn't get my planned idea to come to fruition just yet. (/)_-) Oh well.

    Now, I'm currently returning home from vacation, which will mean that I can have more internet time on my end soon enough. I'll be getting in late, mind, so don't expect me until tomorrow.
