    it's because the writer is a woman

    You know, if the TM writers were going to base themselves on the Jekyll & Hyde musical for the name of Jekyll's NP ("A Dangerous Game", right?), I'm kind of surprised they didn't base themselves on "Confrontation", which is kind of the show's biggest number.

    Or perhaps "Facade". "Behind the Facade" would be a good name for a NP, I think.
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (F/SN): The last duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (F/SN): Shinji X Shirou lemon
    He Was a Good King (F/SN): Was Beowulf a good king?
    A Fairy Tale of Love and Death (F/SN): A meeting between Scáthach and King Hassan.
    Palingenetic Descension (Tsukihime): The origin of the Tohno family's hybrid nature.

    Honestly, the right way to view how Shinji looks at Shirou is somewhere between Rin and Sakura with the bar scene.

    He admires it like Rin, but he thinks its dumb still like Sakura.

    You kind of see how that pops out with a number of key scenes like how he gets mad when Shirou doesn't see anything wrong with how he's doing stuff for everyone else/doing their work and Shinji tells him "Yeah if you like doing stuff for everyone why don't you clean up the club for me too while you're at it?" and is mad when Shirou accepts and goes along with it.

    At the same time he'll reach out and genuinely want to ally Tohsaka or Shirou. He wants recognition in a way that's kind of similar to say Mordred and other characters I guess. But he also wants to be around them because he does enjoy them. As Shirou puts it, he probably does actually like Rin beyond Rin being a symbol of the things he wants to be while having a background that in a way comes from the opposite directions. They're inheritors in completely different ways and all.

    So on and so on.

    That said Sakura is absolutely a thieving cat, real NTR hours.

    Using "prequel" as a shorthand for "this comes before this other thing" should be punishable by law.

    That implied they actually watched it instead of skimming

    Apparently, there's been a Japanese production of the show with Takeshi Kaga as the title characters, so I'd assume yes, they did: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yneMAw15O50.

    Presumably by reading about it on Wikipedia instead of actually watching it. :/

    So, I decided to get some explosion of emotions for myself and choose the worst way possible.
    Being an idiot like I am, I decided to check out some CBR lists about Fate. I heard some very "interesting" thing about them and to tell truthfully, I never had more of a headache and a compulsion to break something in my life.
    It's so bad, even worst then... I really don't know what to say.
    While there sometimes(1 out of 10) good points in them, it feels like the writes not as much as read/watched Fate but just skimmed through the actual Wikipedia, not even a TM-Wiki.
    Not the worst example:

    (If it's not a right place for such discussions I will move it to other Thread)

    What have I just read?

    You can't tell me it isn't a troll.

    It's like a mix of a bad premise, bad informations and lack of creativity at extreme levels.

    Basically, by now nobody should ever expect anything good from CBR.

    Ever. Their articles still appear on my news feed, and to a tee, they make me confused and disgusted by their awful premises.

    So, I recovered after CBR(CBT really) article, while I was looking through my ServantDex, I just got this weird feeling.
    A feeling that Indian/Hindu Gods could also be something similar to Olympians.
    Like, Indian Servants safe for Parvati and Lakshmibai, are all something vaguely sci-fi looking. Not even close to recent Greek stuff, but Vasavi Shakti and Agni Gandiva look kinda alien-esque, HotWheels claded in Kamen Rider armor and even Rama with his supposedly transforming sword.
    Then there also Vimana(either Gils version or Arjuna Over Gods one) which is straight up looks like a sci-fi ship.
    There also a weird thing about Arjuna setting up Pushpatas coordinates with "The space is fixed", but that's just chuuni talk of his (probably).
    It's either that or me overthinking it, and the writers just decided to take the same style from Nasuverse Egypt and Mesopotamia.
    Plus with Indian mythology being a DBZ of mythos, and knowing that Super Sayin Karna exists...(it's all coming together in my sleep deprived mind)

    Indian gods are fully syncretized with Chinese and Japanese, so it's kinda weird that they transitioned from mecha-ish in 4000BC India to an all spiritual paper and wood aesthetics in 1000AD Japan.

    It's interestingly reflected in Arjuna's Alter Bond CE.

    So I was rereading Assassin vs. Saber and this is the first time I ever actually noticed that she knows about Zelretch. Wonder if that's a grail knowledge thing or if he's just old enough to have been around in her time.

    Case Files Mats puts Zelretch vs Crimson Moon at 300 AD and Artoria was in the 500s, so yeah he was.

    The Clock Tower was also established roughly around Artoria's time, give or take a few decades.
