    This thought had been nagging me for the past two days; if J.K. Rowlings exist in the Nasuverse, would the mystery behind wand-like Mystic Codes be rendered obsolete with the rise of the Harry Potter series?

    ...A pretty inane question, but I wondered if the popular belief of associating wands with casting magic = decrease of the wand's mystery. Or something close to it.
    The Act of dozing off in the afternoon is a luxury indeed.
    Coffee would be nice, though.

    If brooms still work fine then so would wands
    Though abandoned, forgotten, and scorned as out-of-date dolls, they continue to carry out their mission, unchanged from the time they were designed.
    Machines do not lose their worth when a newer model appears.
    Their worth (life) ends when humans can no longer bear that purity.

    The secret behind it really has to be out in the open, though. Like, it's not as if because common people can now afford swords and learn swordplay, the mystery behind Tsubame Gaeshi is decreased.

    Yeah it's not really about knowing that x exists, it's about knowing how x works.

    Like, If I run a car factory and everyone knows it, as long as nobody knows how to make cars, I'm still the only one with a car factory.

    I see, thanks for elaborating on it. Honestly, you guys' explanations are easier to understand than the canon material at times. Perhaps my INT brain is too weak for this.

    I couldn't find any mention on the Wiki, but that's of course no indication of anything.
    Nah, but 飞头蛮 got a shoutout in the bloodsucker entry in the tsukihime dictionary

    To ask another question, where are the Thule Society and Prague Association listed under the Wandering Sea on TM Wiki sourced from? I'm assuming the KnK LNs?

    Melty also mentions their name, at least one of them. Also one of the Tsukihime books mentions one of them, but don't remember which.
    The rest I think come from the KnK pamphlets; IIRC, Mcjon01 translated those.

    Black oprichnik. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oprichnik for the historical source.
    For the second, direct translation is Beasts - Crusade (or alternatively a Christian procession).

    Thanks. I had already heard about the Oprichnik, but providing a link just in case is a nice gesture

    What's the relationship between Ruler Karolus and Saber Charlemagne? Is Charlemagne simply the younger version of ossan Karl, or is there some AU Artoria/Lion king dynamic?

    Saber is the fictional Karl, Ruler is the historical one that actually lived.

    That is just the assumption we have so far going by Karl's profile. We don't know the true specifics of the relationship yet, after all in the stream Charle did mentioned that Karl was a different aspect of himself also. So we aren't clear what's going on.

    That article is one giant [Citation Needed]. I'm surprised it's even still there.
