    The more cut and polished the gems are, the closer they come to the transcendental perfection of the Platonic solids, and hence, the more powerful. "Geometry is coeternal with the Mind of God before the creation of things; it is God himself, it has supplied God with the models for the creating of his world, and it has been directly transferred to man with the image of God." (Kepler)

    So the way that they're prepared does matter, that's pretty cool.

    Does the idea for Deadface Hakuno come from Roa? The way that Roa's "will" and "information" go from incarnations feels similar to the way the relationship between the two Hakuno's is portrayed in Last Encore.

    You know, a significant amount of all subsequent Nasu works comes from Roa. He's just the coolest guy

    Yeah I suppose I can see it. The two biggest ideas with Roa are transience/eternity and "gets distracted from purpose by love" which form the core of a lot Nasu's work. Though I'm sure there's room to go a lot more in depth.

    I associate people becoming data more with Zepia, but thinking about it, Zepia also comes from Roa.

    It comes from Julius in Fate/Extra.

    This. I remember last I replayed F/E I had a very big thonking moment when I got to the chapter where Julius comes back.

    Other than that, I think the Deadface stuff resembles Angra Mainyu's situation pretty closely. Specifically the insistence on "malignant information" which was equated to "All Evil in This World" in CCC.

    Yeah I think I made the Avenger connection when I watched the show as it was airing, I can't un see the Roa in there but these are all likely influences as well.

    I was thinking about Fate use of multiple writers in the essentially same setting and how very interesting it is compare to other Japanese media. Like for example Kamen Rider although have some repeating motifs in it (like having a secondary rider) can have completely different magic systems and themes. Meanwhile although Fate you can get pretty liberal with what you working with (see Nasu never saying no Sanda) you have to still abide by the magic system of fate (if not why even write for Fate in the first place). It's very similar to how Western Comic companies work in which you can do anything you want but if you want to work within the main continuity you have to maintain a status quo. Although Western Comics tend to be more dictatorial about these things than Nasu.

    This makes me wonder what's going to happen to the Tsuki side of things like is Nasu going to turn into Fate and give spinoffs to other writers or is he going to keep a strictly Nasu thing.

    Metly Blood Type Lumina already has a guest writer (ACPI). I don't think he has any particular resistance against it.

    Didn't Nasu explicitly mention western comics once when discussing the whole multiple writers thing? Maybe I hallucinated that.

    Nah, you aren't tripping:

There aren't many other works that have so many spin-offs and anthology works, including Fate/Zero. I would even say that TYPE-MOON works are the closest thing Japan has to a Marvel Comics.

    Nasu: Marvel Comics has so many spin-offs that they can't even keep track of things on their own anymore... everyone keeps widening the world and adding on these interesting parts to it, and if they're really good, the company goes and says "OK, that sounds cool. Let's make it official." Even from the user side, they say, "We want to see the X-Men from this work, not the original." It's really amazing how things have spiraled out that way. On one hand, while I still sometimes think "Wouldn't you rather use that skill for your own original creation?", I love being amazed by the different ways people interpret TYPE-MOON characters.

    Trying to get a friend to read doujin Tsukihime 100% blind. Going to avoid saying anything about route order because I want to see if he falls for the fake-out with the "smiling girl" route. Not traditionally seen as a spoiler, but I think if someone went into Tsuki truly blind without being told the traditional route order, the personality swap could have them thinking they're on Kohaku's route, at least for a bit.
