    When Medea went to the Church, she specifies that she was looking for the Lesser Grail assuming they kept it there. I don't remember if she mentioned the Greater Grail.

    There's also that the hole in the sky was never the same as the Illya/Shinji grails, although that's not as clear.

    She mentions the vessel of the Grail or something of that sort, but it seems like one would need a diploma in Nasuspeak to not be surprised by Shirou's sudden realisation "There's no way we can save Sakura... Unless somehow she's only like a satellite receiving transmissions from somewhere else" just from that.
    I mean, I knew they were going to save Sakura somehow, but the sudden realisation threw me off my immersion.
    Also, going on a tangent, me not having read or watched KnK prior to Fate made Ilya's explanation about the true purpose of the Grail more confusing than it should have been.
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot)
    - A duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) (Lemon) - Shirou and Shinji finally acknowledge their feelings.
    He Was a Good King (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) - A short exploration of Beowulf's character as a hero and a king.

    She mentioned the Greater Grail anime too, just before she "killed" Kotomine. To be honest, the whole system confused me for a while.

    Actually, they did give you clues about how Ilya was the lesser grail in as early as Fate(he asks her to "open it up" and she goes ballistic trying to fry him), even had clues in one bad end about the soul transferral in that route.

    Besides, the question that should be ringing in your ears is that if Saber destroyed the grail in the last war, why would it come back? Meaning there was always a larger system at work.

    Also, in HF, Rin mentioned a map she had to the cavern when she surmised the Shadow might be a malfunction of sorts of the Grail system, but then didn't follow that grain of thought until Ilya spilled the news about the true goal of the system, and that Sakura was under a contract with AM.

    A lot of hinting at things under the surface that Kirei, Zouken, and Gil keep under wraps to troll other people.

    You wouldn't know Saber destroyed the Grail in the last war (or, indeed, most of what happened there) while reading F/SN though. Unless you'd read the prequel first.

    "Yes. He was my Master ten years ago in the previous Holy Grail War. I won to the end, and the Holy Grail came into Kiritsugu's hands.
    Archer and his Master still remained, so the Holy Grail War should have been ended by their defeat."

    "But Kiritsugu threw the Holy Grail away.
    As a result, the town went into flames.
    …That man ordered me to destroy the Holy Grail because Servants are the only ones that can touch the Holy Grail.
    Kiritsugu used his last Command Spell to force me to destroy the Holy Grail."

    But of course I'm sure the whole having Avalon shoved in him most of his life and contract with Seiba is the out for this little thing.
    Not when Shirou said it himself that it's impossible to project Ea.

    I define a**pull if he projects that one with ease and without any setbacks.

    And I define it as such if he projects anything other than blades, which in this case, is more of pulling it out of the library rather than actually doing the projection magecraft.

    Wow, Saber had it all wrong all that time.

    She really did not understand Kiritsugu.

    Well yeah, that was kinda the point of their relationship- that they were just incompatible like that.

    Kerry being a giant bitchy manchild about it and playing the "I won't even talk to you/directly acknowledge you" game didn't help.

    Huh. That's weird, because I remember going into Zero wondering "welp let's see how they're going to fuck this up". What route was this said on, HF?

    half misc thought half question

    We know more or less what's Herc's NP/main armament as his other class of Archer (bronze arrow)
    and maybe RIder (Cerberus riding whohoooo)

    but what would be Lancer/Saber's signature NP from the 12 labors, i wonder
    that is, what would be among that that is speary/swordy enough
    (besides nine lives that is basically multipurpose weapon technique)

    For Lancer he's gonna have the thunder of Zeus like Karna having the dart of Indra or Raikou having the Vajra.
    For Saber it has to be some beam.

    See I thought that the Thunder of Zeus would be his Saber thing, in the form of a Lightning-Sword Beam. Not sure about Lancer though.

    The real question is what he'd have as an Assassin.
