    ... So the impression I'm getting is I should probably give this fic a chance? I wasn't too sure since Sakura seemed to have such a major role in the story.

    Major, yes - exclusive, no. You get as much of Rin or Archer's viewpoint, and even Ilya's, as you do of Sakura's. It's just that a lot of events are affected by her participation in the War.

    What a hater.

    ...

    I've found some of the better FSN fiction often grants her a significant role in the story, rather than delegating her to a side character. YMMV.

    If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim,
    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster;
    And treat those two impostors just the same,

    Eh, I'm neutral on Sakura, I just find that if she's not handled properly and she's given a major role it grates on my nerves a bit. I might give this a shot, though, since it seems to well liked.

    Elf was a beta for a few of the chapters out of her own volition. That should count for something, right?

    This. This.

    It's good. Yes, Sakura is a major part, but it's a well written Sakura.

    Not to mention it's Sakura with Saber. Plus there is yuri too.

    Note- It wasn't grammar betaing I was doing more like, is it possible for X to Happen.

    So I have a question...

    Should I expect Terminator Shirou to show up? (made of swords indeed...)

    Overall despite my not liking Sakura as much as other characters, I found this fic very enjoyable. In fact I found this story has raised my opinion of her considerably.

    Plus it includes the super secret hidden Ilya route! (Still wince when I read those scenes. o_O)

    This question can only be answered with a definitive, emphatic...

    ...shrug.

    He still has a role to play, yes, but I'm loath to give any spoilers about that beyond the hints in the story proper.

    I very much enjoy this fanfic, and I really like

    this. I can't help but feel the same way about writing my own fanfic, and only nowadays am I realizing that actually writing it out is far more enthralling than just having certain scenes run through multiple times in my head.

    I was very happy to see that an update was posted recently, and glad to see you here too! The World Without is one of the fanfics that I reread from time to time, as it is in a level of quality that I aspire to and an enduring piece of entertainment.

    Why did you choose to kill off Shinji the way you did? I did like that he got what was coming to him but I would have preferred a more painful and ironic approach. Like getting burnt to a crisp from inside out by an artificial circuit. I think it would have been possible for Caster to create and implant an artificial circuit into Shinji.

    ... I may start giving this a look after all, then. Sakura/Saber is so hard to find, which makes me sad considering who their Japanese VAs are.

    Yep, and it is delicious. Saber is protective dragon.

    There's also some AyakoxRin hints too. And AyakoxRider too.

    As long as the thread's here now, though, I'll answer any questions about TWW people might have.

    Just cut and paste the whole chapter here each time. I usually read the stories here. Otherwise it's too much work to go fishing around the rest of the internet for random stories.

    So I was GOING to take the opportunity to give an opinion or two on this fic, bitch about some issues, compliment teh awesome, and ask whether or not this actually counts as yuri. I felt like Saber/Sakura got pretty well sunk there in ch. 13, but fortunately, general consensus seems to disagree (since I'd just gotten sold on that ship).

    ....but apparently my living in the mountains for a few months caused me to miss an update so I'm gonna go marathon this story again and THEN post here.

    Also hahahaha I'm posting on the same thread as Radiant for the first time. This makes my geeky little heart very happy. Praise the internet.

    I'll have to start marathoning this fic, now that I'm done with my internship. Gonna put it on my to do list. Good FSN fanfiction outside of BL is always nice to find.

    You're dwelling too much on physical pain, I think. The one thing that struck me about his deaths in canon was how quick they were--he barely saw Berserker before he went splat in Fate, and he never even realized he was dead when Sakura offed him in Heaven's Feel.

    For his death in this fic, I was more interested in emotional pain. I wanted him to see it coming (well, in a matter of speaking) have a chance to dwell on it for a moment, and completely break down before his life ended.
