I was thinking today a thing: that we have all manners of threads for the ancillaries to the story, a few for their protagonists and basically none for the stories themselves.
That left me confused, especially when the TM fandom makes a thing of throwing around the big words of "theme", "message", "symbol" and so on like they were used used condoms.
Hence this thread. But not, of course, to discuss the basic level of reading. I don't think we precisely need a circlejerk about how "F/SN routes examine the possibility of heroism in increasingly cynical ways".
In other words, here's the principle: put here your ideas, your interpretations or even just the impressions that the reading left on you. Was Tohno's carpe diem for you an allusion to modern materialism and anxiety? Was Ryougi's identity complex a stand-in for Japanese postwar national re-identification?
or did you only notice something vaguely phallocentric about shirou
Anyway that's it, with one recommendation and one rule:
1)Be as original as you can be, it will totally make your e-peen bigger.
2)You'll still need to defend your thesis, otherwise the e-peen is going to stay just like your RL one.
