    Okay everyone, Requiem for Loss is now complete. But do be on the lookout for a bonus vignette or two in the near future that will add further content to the story. Just be aware that the main, planned viewpoints have all been written as of now.

    Enjoy it, my personal tribute to the cast of Fate/EXTRA!

    Well that was sad and really well done. But mostly sad.

    More so the Rani one, but that's personal preference and such.

    He got his share of woes as with other players, but it has been overwhelmed by the sheer amount of different SSRs, both as F2P and P2P.

    I don't even wish to stand beside him as I got 2 consecutive IRs at my work the very same month after I got Jeanne.

    Rani, you were so dull yet so sweet. Leo and Gawain don't deserve the hate they get. Twice is still a silly name, but aside from that he wasn't so bad.

    That was good, IRUn. Short, but sweet. I liked it, and thanks for writing it.

    Sadly, I don't recognise even half of this stuff - but it's very poignantly written, which makes it interesting, nevertheless. Thank you.

    Excellent work - Very much in-character and poignant...Especially since I've just finished Extra myself. Loved it, loved it.

    Also, Alice - NO, I NEVER LIKED YOU, YOU'RE GOING TO DIE ALONE AND UNLOVED.

    I just had a shiver after reading Last Blood. Dammit, Twice!

    And I didn't hate Leo as much as I hated Gawain. Sure, Leo was... overconfident, to say the least, and as bad a Master as one can be (giving your Servant identity is a sure way to be defeated in a world where information is power, and in Extra this is even more true than in normal FSN).

    Gawain, on the other hand, was just insufferable prick without enough guts to correct his own Master for his own good. I'm eager to see what he says to Casko and Archer, but if he is as bad as he is with Saber...

    On the other hand, I give it to him. He was the only Servant that made me use an auto-res. The others didn't managed to sweap all my Servant's HP (his Galatine took me by surprise, I was sure he was going to use another skill).

    He actually cracked a joke with Casko. And Archer was totally the biggest dick when it came to smack talking Gawain.

    Also, the only way to correct Leo was to let him die. It was really a lose-lose situation for Gawain, so he went with it and did his best to be loyal to his Master.

    I think I unintentionally trolled Ergast.

    Well, Archer is always a dick to everyone not named Illya, Arturia or Rin. And even then he is somewhat dickish to Arturia and Rin, but not completely.

    That aforementioned "shiver"? Or did I just read that wrong?

    Ho? Nah, it wasn't a bad shiver, I was just too into it after reading half of the snippets, so the last one made me had a shiver *chuckles*

    (EX) .Another / Taiga-sensei’s Great Lesson
    =======================================


    YAAAAWWWWN~!

    Another day, anotherrrr dollar! Or at least, that’s how it’d be if we were actually paid for this. Real money, I mean. Not these weird, useless virtua-dollars that aren’t good for anything.

    Oh well, no sense in worrying about that, right? Anyway, there are bigger fish and issues to fry.

    Anyway, lately I’ve noticed that I’ve been thinking a lot about what’s going to happen. …What? Don’t you look at me like that, you upstart! I’m serious here! Don’t make me give you the detention of a lifetime!

    Well now, where was I…?

    Ah, yes, I remember now…

    I was pondering the end…

    The Holy Grail War is almost over, you know. It’s kind of hard to believe. Even though I’m just a teacher and not a Master, it’s still sort of surreal-feeling. It’s all so…I dunno…transient, don’t you think? Has it really been seven weeks already?

    …Hey now, don’t look at me with that kind of face. I may be an NPC but I’m not shallow. There’s more to me than meets the eye, even though I’m just a memory of someone that was jotted down in the Moon Cell’s database.

    Do you know what these final days mean? The end of the Holy Grail War isn’t just the end of the Holy Grail War – it’s an end to this microcosm of a world that SE.RA.PH set up for the tournament to take place. This world of ours will be compressed and recalibrated into something else in time for the next cycle, and all of the NPCs will be broken down and recycled and ultimately replaced.

    Of course, I presume you all know what that implies.

    The setting of every instance of the Holy Grail War differs. No two occurrences appear the same. Each of our miniature worlds are like individual snowflakes with a lifespan comparable to one, but there are some constant similarities that are always to be had. Like, say, the Holy Grail War always takes place in a school-based setting for certain reasons. Sure, it was a Japanese high school this round, but who knows how it will look next time. It might be an outdoor campus, it might be an inner-city American school, or a famous college. It might even resemble one of those fancy-schmancy British boarding schools, like something cool out of Harry Potter!

    Now that’d be something to see! Look out troublemaking ne’er do-wells, Governess Taiga will be getting all up in your dorm room if you bring trouble your way!

    The problem is there is no guarantee that I’ll even be around to see it. There are billions upon billions of lives recorded in the Moon Cell. There is no need for the system to reuse old NPC models. As much as I might like it, the chances of my current form taking on the role of a teacher-shaped NPC are astronomically slim.

    Still, I don’t see why that’s a reason for me to be sad in the here and now! It’s perfectly human to live in the moment if there is no guaranteed future, and by gum that’s what I’ll do! That’s why even the other NPCs seem to want to live out what they’ve got as well, to find a purpose. There is the reason why I want to enjoy what little time I have left.

    That, and see if I can’t do something about it……

    I’ve got it! I’ll ask that Master if they can do just one more little thing for me, then~!






    Surprise, surprise! I did say that there was still more to come.

    Taiga is surprisingly deep. Especially in EXTRA...not that she really shows it, but it's definitely there...somewhere...
