    True, but, the fic is supposed to be about her coming to grips with two years of pain and sadness and starting her way on the road to recovery. It's not unnatural that she'd have such conflicting moments (indeed, it actually adds to the impression of brokenness without having to have some character come out and identify it in dialogue--"show, don't tell" and all of that) but it generates a kind of dangling thread and dangling threads in fiction ache to be tied up. Well, to me they do. Lots of people like dangling threads.

    Gah, must have missed my post.

    The 'noble woman' that keeps getting referenced by Sakura that Shirou killed is Saber, not Rin.

    Meaning Saber Alter's defeat, right? (Hm, sounds like an editing issue, then, given that the fic is about Sakura coping with Rin's death; I don't think it comes through strongly that she's referencing a different dead woman when Saber wasn't named...)

    Yeah, that was the reference. I admit it was a bit hard to make it more obvious since I was writing things from Sakura's POV, but it's one of those things I do wish I'd done a bit more strongly in hindsight looking back at the piece.

    Solves my original issue, though.

    Which, and I think I made this point back when I commented before, is that way before walking out, she'd talk with Shirou, as she had talked to him about the difficult things in the route itself. So it was very OOC for her to walk out before that had occured. Maybe after, but not before trying.

    This isn't an on-going 'fic, though. (Though, I think necros happen to be much worse with an on-going 'fic because you've just got everyone excited about something that seemed to be dropped starting up again).
    You should really have asked me before accusing me of ignoring previous discussion. For your information I'm doing this from a real old mobile. The type that runs out of memory when you load two pages. So the date might not show up sometimes. Furthermore I did read the entire discussion before commenting.
