    From the japanese parts it seems to me Anastasia is saying:
    Gongol's Viy is inspired by Boniak/Solodiviy Bunio who were actually the Romanov Easter Egg.
    I guess it's similar to the Gram line in Fate Route
    Caliburn inspired by Gram. Gram a passed down version of Merodach.

    Their worth (life) ends when humans can no longer bear that purity.

    oh I see, the uploader on sad panda titled it "fate/side materiale" but it is indeed just "fate side material" blame TM for weird naming.

    Is the Clock Tower still located at or near the British Museum in recent canon? Case Files only talks of masquerading as an old university and college towns throughout London:

    Mystile
    the Faculty of Fundamentals
    , five Major Classrooms and seventy or so Minor Classrooms, it was the highest institute of learning in the world of magi.

    To those on the outside, the mass of students just seemed to be attending an old university. And of course, utilizing both mystical and psychological barriers, it was precisely constructed and strictly monitored so that passers-by wouldn't carelessly walk in.

    Once you entered the school for real, everything changed.

    (...)

    In addition to the main school that was the Clock Tower, the remaining eleven Faculties had their own independent college towns scattered throughout the London suburbs, though that was as much due to the geopolitical situation of the Magic Association.
    Edit: nevermind, found it, I should have put more effort myself.

Bounded fields in the surrounding areas protect against people (from physical methods include inspection zones on highways and cartographic erasure to bounded fields obscuring vision). In addition, eleven departments reconfigured themselves as satellite cities in districts surrounding London (Slur. Rocks Road, etc).
    Professors on active teaching duty at the hub set up a London residence. Although the Clock Tower is fundamentally a research institution, their home (headquarters) so to speak are their department's cities.
    For example, El-Melloi II rents an apartment in London. After he finishes his morning work as a Clock Tower professor, he returns to his home, Modern Magecraft city Slur, in the afternoon to take care of his students.
    British Museum = Clock Tower the magical organization HQ
    Not-big ben = Mystile

    Thank goodness JK Rowling invented the concept of "school," where would we be without her
    The Fourth Order - Long form, Church-centric story. Follows the life of a young knight within the Church, and her personal battle against the heretical.
    My other fanfiction - Almost entirely short stories and oneshots, except for the above

    Genuine question, is there any explanation for why ragnarok is in BC as usually its a far off event even in the AD worship of norse gods,? I mea outside of those people who said Christianity canonically occurred after ragnraok but we dont talk about them

    Cause the Age of Gods ends in 1 AD so the gods had to be gone by then. Nasu just took advantage that this particular religion has a myth where their gods die.

    So basically nasu changed the entire timeframe of the myth then.

    It's not like the idea that Ragnarok has already happened is unique to Fate.

    Was more curious than anything and if there was a explanation.

    The euhemerism of the Aesir is a really old idea: "they weren't gods, they were ancient kings and heroes who got deified!" (For example, check out the Historia de omnibus Gothorum Sueonumque regibus.)
    It follows, then, that the Aesir are of the past and the events in Ragnarök must have already transpired! That the entire thing ends with humanity being repopulated by an Adam & Eve analogue (and Balder, the Christ analogue, being resurrected) just grounds it further. Gotta love Christianization, huh. (This is sarcastic, Christianization kind of fucked our whole knowledge of Norse culture.)

    So there's some historical precedence for Ragnarök having already happened, I guess, but I'm honestly not sure why ~1,000 B.C. was chosen. Is that date relevant for some other reason? Would this be obvious if I'd read all those weird New Age occultism books Nasu loves to pull stuff from?

    Scandinavia didn't reach the Iron Age until ~500BC, but I guess if you just skim the Wikipedia page you might miss that.
