    Fate/Regalia Interrogation Room

    Fate/Regalia Interrogation Room

    Alright, this is the place where your characters dirty secrets will be raveled.

    But before we start with the interviews a few rules for this place.

    1. Anyone who wants to be interviewed is required to find someone who will interview him. Then they will appoint a date of the interview. The interviewer will put then an announcement here on who, by who and when will be interviewed.

    2. Other players can PM the interviewer with possible questions for the one who will be interviewed. The interviewer has the last word considering the questions he will ask. He can use the ones send to him, but don't have to.

    3. Besides the announcements and the interviews no other posts are allowed here. If you want to discuss the interviews do it in the discussion thread.

    4. Both the interviewer and the interviewee HAVE TO role play here. No matter what happens and is said, you have to respond as your characters. But breaking the forth wall is allowed.

    5. None of the information reveled here are to be used in the RP thread until your characters learn about them in that thread.

    6. The interviews are going to take place in real time so both participants must be present at the time and they will post they questions and answers here. No other posts (announcements) are allowed while the interview is still going.

    7. VIOLENCE IS NOT ALLOWED! - Matthias.
    7`. It's allowed against your own servant.

    That's pretty much it. If you think something must be added/explained/changed give me a notice in the discussion thread.

    Matt: "Alright people, this is the first interview for the OLYMPUS newspaper new column: "Interrogation room". Here we will try to have a closer look on PC's.
    I am Matthias Gummer and I will be your interviewer today. So let's get this started.
    Our guests today are Fujou Rei and her yet to summon servant Artificer.
    Welcome, and thanks for sparing some time for us."

    Rei: Hello there, Gummer-san. It was a long walk, but we're finally here. Hope we didn't make you wait too much.

    Artificer: ...

    Rei: To be honest, the reason why we were late was because of him... He didn't want to-

    Artificer: ... Waste time like this. Matthias Gummer, depending on what you ask, I might or might not let you leave this room alive.

    Rei: ... He's a little tough with new acquaintances. Maybe a command spell will make him behave properly. Don't you think?

    Artificer: ...

    Matt: Guess he would be more lively if Assa was here. Whatever he can play tsun if he want to, until he answers the questions.

    Artificer: ... I'll kill him now, Master.

    Rei: Not during the interview! That'd make me look bad!

    Rei: Please, Gummer-san. Could you ask those questions, already? He's not in a good mood today.

    Matt: Right, right, the questions. I have some questions prepared beforehand and a few letters from our readers, but judging from the amount you two aren't popular characters. Well for the first something that could be expected. Whats your impressions about OLYMPUS up till now?

    Artificer: There is no need to be popular. Unlike my Master, I believe it's good to keep a low profile.

    Rei: Eh.. Maybe they will change their minds if we give them some time...

    Artificer: ... OLYMPUS is the place I've been looking for. I can't wait to visit 'The
    Forge' at the Hephaestus District. There, I won't be bothered by any of you.

    Rei: ... Ugh... Well, as you can tell, OLYMPUS is surrounded by mystery. There are many puzzles to solve, and many secrets to reveal. I haven't been here for long, but, as the detective I am, I'll make sure I find the truth behind all this.

    Artificer: Heh... Hey Master, I think there is a clue right in front of you. Can't you see it?

    Rei: S-Shut up, Artificer! ... N-Next question!

    Matt: Well, that's some interesting point of view you have there. OK, let's try with one of the letters...
    "What was your first reaction upon knowing that you were invited to OLYMPUS? What were the things you found hardest to leave? And why do you think you were called to be in OLYMPUS?"

    Rei: Oh, it looks like someone wants to know a lot about me.

    Artificer: ... It wouldn't be wise to answer that question. Someone might use it against you during the course of the war... I would.

    Rei: There is no need to worry, I heard that what happens here is only between us and our fans.

    Artificer: And you actually believe them...

    Rei: ... Anyways. My first reaction was surprise, followed by hope. I needed a miracle, and God sent me a map of where to find it. I never left anything behind. Yes, my home and family are still in Japan. But that's where they are supposed to be. Because I came her to save my family. That's why I am in OLYMPUS.

    Artificer: I like you when you talk so confidently.

    Rei: But I still don't like you! Geez, I wanted to summon an Archer class Servant. How did this happen?

    Artificer: It's because we are very compatible, Master.

    Rei: Q-Quit it. As for the last question... I'm not sure. I don't have enough evidence to present an hypothesis.

    Artificer: Heh, and you call yourself a detective.

    Matt: I see. It is a bit too early for some conclusions. Next question is for Artificer.
    "Where you a womanizer in your life? How many lovers did you have?"

    Matt: Appears that someone actually thinks you might have succeeded at some point.*smirk*

    Artificer: Don't get cocky, you bastard.

    Artificer: But Lover? I only had one. Of course, there is a big difference between a lover and a woman. A lover is someone who you'd die for, someone you devote your life to... A woman is...

    Rei: A woman is what...?!

    Artificer: Let's leave it there...

    Matt: Hmmm~ But your attempts in creating a harem in OLYMPUS are pretty well known.
    So Rei, how do you feel about your servant hitting on every single woman that appears?

    Artificer: Oh... Crap.

    Rei: I... I had no idea! So you mean my Servant is a pervert...?

    Artificer: Uh... Of course not. Don't believe this man. Look at his face! He's clearly l-


    Artificer: That wasn't on purpose!

    Matt: So... since Art might not be able to answer for a while let's get back to Rei.
    You said this trip is your hope and a miracle send by God. Did you mean you sister's situation by that? Can you tell us something more about it?

    Rei: ... Ah.

    Rei: It seems you've got a very good source, Gummer-san. I don't tell that to everybody.

    Rei: You are right. My younger sister, Sakura, suffers from a terminal illness. There is apparently no way to stop the decaying process. So I'm betting it all on this miracle.

    Rei: ...

    Matt: Sorry to hear that. One of our readers is interested in how far can you go for her. So Rei, will you walk on straight to your goal even if it means leaving misery, rubble and burning corpses behind?

    Rei: ... To ask such a question...

    Rei: I'll reach my goal. That's my purpose right now. To get there, I'm ready to suffer any kind of pain. But I ain't so selfish to take innocent lives to do so. I don't follow the path of an assassin, but that of a hero...

    Artificer: Did I say th-

    Rei: S-Stay down, you! ... I would like to change the subject right now...

    Matt: Speaking of it, what subjects do you find most interesting?

    Rei: Eh...? Ummm... I guess Languages is one of my favorites. I know quite a a lot. It's too bad I can't read anything but what's writen in Braille.

    Rei: Then, Witchcraft. It comes as no surprise, as that's my specialization.

    Rei: Now that I think about it... I'm surprised nobody asked about my magecraft. I guess the ones who sent the letters are not suited for interrogation. Oh well.

    Matt: Oh, if you are willing to revel such info then please, do share.

    Artificer: I can't allow that, otherwise Master shall become an easy target, if they figure out her weaknesses.

    Rei: Yeah, that's right. Well, how about an intimidation tactic? We give them a bit of information that will make them wary, and so they won't approach without care.

    Artificer: That would give us time to prepare, too. And we prepare much better than our enemies... Okay, do it. But not too much.

    Rei: I know, I know! Hmmm... Well, I guess I can tell you this. One of my spells is a ten-count. You know what that means right, instant contract! Even a Servant can't ignore that in battle.

    Artificer: Eh, hate to say it, but Master's right.

    Rei: So there!

    Matt:I must admit, I'm not impressed. But that's probably because I have a hax spell of my own. So the next question...
    If you were to become a cake, what cake would you be?...

    Matt:...BUHU, What a retard come up with a stupid question like thi- ...Wait, it was me. So your answers?

    Rei: ...

    Artificer: ...

    Rei: Strawberry cake, I guess? I like how it tastes.

    Artificer: ... I refuse to answer such a stupid question.

    Matt: Tch, can't you have some fun here? Huh? Fine! I will give you a normal question.
    Artificer, from the weapons you can make, which type is your favorite to create and wield?

    Artificer: And do you honestly expect me to answer that? Heh, fool. But, out of pity, I'll give you a hint. The weapon I like the most is the one I used to defeat my rival smith. Since you don't know who I am, that shouldn't tell you anything. Happy?

    Matt: In other words, you suck at everything and just bash with the hammer?

    Artificer: Exactly, funny man. Exactly.

    Matt: Then Art, what kind of women do you like? Only those who can't run away or do you have more refined taste? Also what about you Rei?

    Artificer: Women are women. As long as I can get satisfaction out of them, there are no limits.

    Rei: I... Uh... This... You see... I...

    Artificer: Clearly, she has fallen for me.

    Rei: T-That's not it! I... I like men that treat me like they would treat anybody else...!

    Artificer: Argh, that Tohno guy is becoming troublesome!

    Matt: Actually I was asking only about women, but whatever. Our time is nearing to the end so final questions. Let's see:
    "What the hell are you eating to make them so big, you milk cow!?"

    Matt: ......This handwriting..... ASSASSIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIN!!!!

    Rei: Ah... *Blush*

    Artificer: Heh, she's right. The energy from her eyes must have gone to her t-

    Rei I-I Believe it's time to e-end this interview! L-Let's us go Artificer!

    Artificer: Fine, then take my hand, and I shall take you ba- Ahhh! Stop! That's my ear!

    Matt: Our guests were Fujou Rei and Artificer. Thank you very much for your time and bye. We shall meet again when the time for next interrogation comes.


    Matt: Sigh, what a stupid work. Shouldn't have taken this part time...

    Assa: Master...

    Matt: OH! What do we have here? I was just going to look for you~

    Assa: H-how did it go?

    Matt: Splendid! Just that, there was a question I don't remember coming up with...

    Assa: Yes that! What did she say?

    Matt: ...If you want to be a milk cow then eat grass!

    Assa: O_O

    Assa: ...

    Matt: You are not seriously considering that, aren't you?

    Trapped within my fierce desire, resistance is futile. Screaming for your life, nowhere to hide,
    Tonight we cross the line, your innocence is mine!

    Sakuya: "Greetings, this is the second interview for the OLYMPUS newspaper new column: "Interrogation room". Here we will try to have a closer look on another PC's.
    I am Ryougi Sakuya and I shall be your interviewer today.
    Our guests today are Drake Edelphius Walker and his yet to be summoned servant Kaiser.
    Welcome aboard and thanks for sparing time with us Drake-san, Kaiser-san."

    Ravager: ...

    Drake: No, I should be the one thanking you for sparing your time. By the way, doesn't Ravager wish to talk or even greet us?

    Kaiser: Whatever. Let's go straight to the questions, shall we?

    Drake: Agreed. Whenever you wish, Sakuya.

    Sakuya: Ravager?

    Ravager: *smiles* Peace be upon you too.

    Sakuya: Well then, I have some letters in my hand but before we get to that let us start with something basic. What do you two think of Olympus?

    Drake: Well, I think of OLYMPUS as the result of the combined efforts of the Mage's Association worldwide, which is something that I did not believe until I saw it with my own eyes. To me OLYMPUS is like what pulling the sword from the stone was to King Arthur; it's knowing that I'll become a part of history.

    Kaiser: To me, OLYMPUS can be summarized in a phrase: "Panem et Circenses". Basically, it means: provide the populace food and entertainment and they will not give a damn about what the people above do. Short long story, I feel like I was standing in an illusion that could break in this very moment.

    Sakuya: I see then. Well I hope it holds on until this interview ends. Here's our first letter.... *blushes ever so slightly* "Are you or are you not a virgin Drake-san?"

    Drake: "Woah, such a question! I'm kinda suprised, y'know. Well, since you seem so eager to know (And in the case you are a girl) perhaps you would like to find out?"

    Kaiser: "Master, what if it's actually a guy...?"

    Drake: "In that case he can find me a girl and ask her afterwards, right?."

    Ravager: *sigh*(Honestly....)

    Sakuya: N-next question! Why did you leave the Clock Tower?

    Drake: Well, there are various reasons. First of all, I never felt I could fit there with all those serious people, nor I was ready to die like every single magus, even the lowest ranked, is. And, above all... Getting diagnosed with a brain tumor was the thing that got me moving, I guess. I refused to die without knowing more than England, so that's why I left.

    Kaiser: ...I kind of admire you.

    Drake: Why?

    Kaiser: I don't see many people being that cheerful upon their impending death, except two kind of persons: the mad and the wise ones. And I don't think you are mad.

    Sakuya: We're sorry to hear that...then does your wish for this grail war has something to do with curing your brain tumor?

    Drake: More or less. As a magus, I know the Holy Grail is nothing but a massive prana container. Actually, I'm concerned with using the energy from the Holy Grail to create a spiritual land to set "Laws" where healing magecraft could succesfully allow doing such things.

    Sakuya: Then I wish you good luck with that. Next question, still from the same sender. 'How far will you go in order to obtain your wish? Are there any lines you refuse to cross?' Well Drake-san?

    Drake: "Heh, I knew something like this would eventually appear. I want to avoid killing at all costs. Life is something precious that should not be wasted. But let me warn you. Over the years, I developed methods to get my opponents out of the way without killing them. You could say that Freelancing made me a pragmatic person, so don't think that you will get an edge over that."

    Sakuya: Chivalrous but will not hesitate to cross the line. This is the kind of Master Drake-san is. Moving on to another we go. "Drake, have you ever thought about drinking absinthe or some other licourish flavored alcohol to open your circuit? "

    Drake: "During what you could call my rebellious stage I would bring such kinds of beverages to the Clock Tower and would from time to time take a few shots under the pretext of opening my circuits, but never intended to do that seriously, especially when I became a Freelancer."

    Sakuya: question. "Could you tell us why did your Hecate Phone looks like a Hawk? Does it have something to do with the way you live life, or is it something completely different?"

    Drake: I don't know. Maybe... Ever heard the saying "A hawk only shows its talons when it sees its prey?"

    Kaiser: So, Ravager, spekaing of that. How long are you going to sit around and pretend you are not a feral fighter capable of bringing down some of the thoughest monsters?

    Ravager: *smirk* Just because I am a Heroic Spirit of Carnage it does not mean I am going to intimidate everyone I meet Kaiser. I shall bare my fangs only when the situation needed.

    Kaiser: I see. A clever strategy, but poor deployment. Anyways, next question in case there's any.

    Sakuya: This is a question for you kaiser-san. "How would you stop someone from bullying you?"

    Kaiser: Interesting question. In case it got me on my nerves and the person performing the bullying were someone not to attend logical reasons, it'd be reduced to either leaving or fighting if extremely annoyed by the bully's attitude.

    Ravager: It's my turn. Try and convince us why you and no one else are the person worthy of gaining the Grail Servant Kaiser.

    Kaiser: I think it's pretty simple. I am one of the few, if not the only one, who after being done with it would share its power with other people in need for it.

    Ravager: If that is your answer it's settled then. It's my win.

    Sakuya: (They sure are competitive lot....) Last question before we end our interview session. What's your favorite colors, Drake-san, Kaiser-san.

    Drake: I think... Yellow kinda suits me.

    Kaiser: Grey's for me. Doesn't stand out in the day nor in the night, so it's useful to reduce chances of an enemy spotting you right away.

    Drake: Whew. I guess this was the end, huh.

    Kaiser: Yeah. By the way, Ravager. Being stronger and more ruthless than anybody else doesn't mean you'll turn out to be the winner. Because, who knows if there's even a prize to fight for?

    Ravager: *smiles* And that's precisely why you will lose Kaiser.

    Sakuya: Then, if there's nothing else that concludes our interview session with Drake and his servant Kaiser. Thank you for bothering to come over for our little interview Drake-san.

    The curtain's open on a dimly lit stage, A masked figure is the only one standing on it, a voice synthesizer makes it difficult to determine gender, thought it sounds as if the masked figure might be male.

    Masked man: Goooooood evening ladies and gentleman! I am servant murderer and I will be your host for the evening, we have a great interrogation room planned for you tonight, in a few minutes we will be hosting the famous battle cook and his servant-to-be, The old man of the mountain, servant assassin herself! Those of you familiar with my master might know he had looked forward to hosting this interview, but I decided it would be more fun if I did it instead! Master took it pretty well though, you just gotta know how to talk to him!


    Zero's head bursts out of a bathtub filled with ice, there is blood drying on the back of his head, after a moment, his hands go to his stomach, which is in horrible pain.

    Zero: Oh god my kidneys are gone!

    *back at the theater

    Murderer: Anyway, we will be starting in about 20 minutes, so stay tuned!

    Murderer: Aaaaaaaand we are back folks, our guests have arrived, and we have quite a few letters from your adoring fans, Matt, you and your servant are certainly a popular pair, thank you for joining us tonight.

    Matt: Yeah, sure. It feels kind of odd to be sitting on this side... Or maybe it's because I'm being interrogated by a Murderer.

    Murderer: Heh, well lets get right to it, first one is just a warm up, how are you two finding Olympus so far? is it everything you thought it would be?

    Matt: Sigh, a troublesome question right at the beginning... Let's see, for now it's one strange thing after another, I really don't know what that Atlasia woman thinks. Making a school the battlefield for a Grail War, that's honestly crazy.

    Assa: ...

    Matt: Oi! Assa, turn your stealth mode off and answer!

    Assa: ...

    Matt: What are you doing? You were the one who wanted to come here in the first place. Come on, I will buy you a melon bred on our way back so behave.

    *A little girl in white one-piece dress appears peeking from behind Matt.*

    Matt: Sorry, she became all shy once we got here.

    Murderer: aww, well I think she is adorable! Well, how bout another warm up then? One of your fans writes "so Assa-chan, what is you and your master's favorite food?" Of course, murderer is a very devoted fan and guesses melon bread! And a follow up for you Matt, do you have a dish you are particularly proud of or most enjoy making?

    Assa: O_o H-how did you know? A-are you that, that, s.. star... stur... How did you called them again Master?

    Matt: A stalker. Anyway about my favorite dish, I guess the very first one I learned. Roasted crickets.

    Murderer: Murderer? Stalk someone?! Perish the thought! Hmmm...lets see what else we have in the mail bag......oh, good one! Now, naughty naughty young lady, drugs shouldn't be used by a little girl, but assassins to a man used hashish, how much did you partake in life, do you intend to continue the habit now, and does it really improve your abilities? And do try not to encourage drug use for children while answering, the censors would eat me alive, hah!

    Assa: I-I would never, -I'm m-mean I 'm not... ;_;

    Matt: Don't hide it, everyone knows the truth.


    Matt: Ow, she broke... Whatever. By the way Mr. Stalker, where's Zero? He was suppose to be doing this, right?

    Murderer: Poor thing. Oh, master? I assume he is just, er, cooling his heels somewhere waiting for his own interview. Besides, isn't it much nicer this way? I mean, assassin is the servant that kills masters, and mine isn't around, if you think about it, the situation is optimal. For me, obviously. But really, never mind about that! There is nothing to worry about, we are all friends here! How about another letter? Our admirer writes "What is your wish? How far will you go to accomplish this wish?" This question is directed to the both of you, the question is then followed up to little button over there, our writer wants to know how she died.

    Matt: A wish? Hmm... You can say I have a wish but... I definitely don't want to use the grail to make it come true. I-I'm not even sure about it yet... For now my only wish is to stay by Young Lady's side.

    Assa: Uguu~

    Matt: Don't steal other peoples lines and stop crying! Come on, come on, be a good girl. Here, you can have this lollipop.

    Assa: T-thank you *snif* Master.

    Matt: Alright, now answer the questions. How did you die?

    Assa: Wa flowbned.

    Matt: Don't speak with that thing in your mouth! Again!

    Assa: I drowned.

    Matt: And, your wish?

    Assa: My wish... W-well, I... I... I would like to... No, forget about it. I'm not allowed to wish for something like that... For now I'm happy with just being here with Master, walking around the streets, basking in the sun, eating Master's delicious food, playing with sis Froste, so... please, don't ask me that...

    Murderer: Well its nice to see you to are getting along so well! Our next letter says......hmm...haha, oh my, how naughty! Button, another admirer maybe be hoping to much! He writes "Is assa attracted to anyone she has encountered so far in Olympus?"

    Assa: Bhuf I fhasn't shuwommed fet..

    Matt: I told you to stop eating that while talking!

    Assa: *whispers* Master, why dose this man call me a "Button"?

    Matt: *whispers* Why, indeed...

    Assa: *whispers* And he looks at me in that strange way. It gives me the creeps.

    Matt: *whispers* Maybe he is "that".

    Assa: *whispers* "That"?

    Matt: *whispers* A lolicon.

    Assa: *whispers* I see... ... ...What does that mean?

    Matt: *whispers* That your ass is in danger. Don't make any eye contact with him, don't get close to him, don't bend over and if he starts acting funny, run to the nearest police station.

    Assa: O_o

    Murderer: At this time I would like to remind both of you that your microphones are still on. Now then! next qu...

    A door slams from back stage, soon after, blue from cold, hastily applied bloodstained bandages leaking at his side, and clad only in wet underwear, Zero stumbles in.

    Zero: ...

    Murderer: ThatsourshowtonightthankstobothourguestsMattandBut tontooninnexttimegoodnight!

    Murderer runs off the stage with Zero pursuing as best he can

    Zero: err....pleasure meeting...both of you.....GET BACK HERE!

    Matt: So they were into something like this...

    Assa: Ha? What do you mean Master?

    Matt: Assa, when you grow up, and became a lady, you will find a man who will love you, and he will want to tie you up. And for some reason, you will like the idea. That's what I'm talking about.

    Assa: I still don't get it... besides I won't grow up anymore...

    Matt: Right, then you don't have to know.

    Trapped within my fierce desire, resistance is futile. Screaming for your life, nowhere to hide,

    Kaiser:The curtains fall and rise again, to reveal Kaiser's mighty shape! My, my. Let's see... Today I shall be interviewing 4 & Trickster for the sake of the readers' interest. Fine.
    (He's got a little complex in his height, so let's ignore it)

    Kaiser: Well, since Drake's eating with Yamato, I might as well start the inter...

    Drake: *Panting* You damn joke of a Servant. Why the hell didn't you tell me there was an interview scheduled!?"

    Kaiser: Well, today we are interviewing 4 and Trickster.

    Drake: And?

    Kaiser: *Ponders for a short while* No, actually this might be interesting. Just try not to be too noisy when we start talking about morals. Well, short long story, we will be interviewing the current 4 and her Servant Trickster so send us your questions before we get started in the time of 20 minutes.

    Kaiser: So, I guess we can already begin the fourth interview of the "Interrogation Room".
    I am Servant Kaiser and the airheaded dumbass besides me is Drake Walker, my Master.
    Thank you for sparing your time with us, 4 and Trickster.

    4: Okay, let's just get this over with.

    Trickster: Come on Master, you can at least try to make an effort

    4 (sighing a bit): Fine

    Kaiser: I can't help but feel sympathy. Anyways, before we get to the actual questions there's always a generic one that has to be asked. What do you think of OLYMPUS? Was it up to your expectations?

    4: Impressions about OLYMPUS, huh? Well, it's interesting, to say the least. That's about the most I can say. Anyway, I can't say I really had any expectations or such things before I came here. I suppose?

    Trickster: It's certainly different from anything I was expecting. I've never quite seen a place quite like this, and believe me, I've seen quite a few.

    Kaiser: Well, well. It seems like our readers are wondering quite a few things about you guys, and this time they did their homework properly. For instance, Do you expect to remember and/or recover a powerful ability you lost with your memories during your time in OLYMPUS?

    4: would I know? You're expecting me to remember something I don't remember when I remember it? Or something? I don't know.

    Kaiser: Don't tell me. I'm merely acting as the middle man between the readers and you. Maybe that reader would like to rephrase his question, wouldn't he?
    How do you two get along? Have you formed a partnership or do you tend to work alone?

    Trickster: She can be a bit hard to handle at times, but generally we get along well and without any major issues.

    4: Of course, if the situation calls for it, we are both perfectly capable of acting independently, but we're also quite capable of working together as well. ...and what do you mean by 'hard to handle'? (glares at Trickster)

    Trickster: Nothing in particular.

    Drake: *Leaning on Kaiser's shoulder* Well, let me handle this one! Trickster, it seems like someone wants to learn a little more about you. What's your favorite joke? Your favorite way of getting back on people?
    Aaand, wait, this one's for 4... Pffft! Hahahaha!

    Kaiser: You should stop laughing. Maybe the one who wrote this meant it seriously.

    Drake: Woah, sorry. I kinda snapped there. No hard feelings, dear reader. 4,what kind of plush toy do you have? A cat? A bear?

    Trickster: My favorite way of getting back on people? Well, it depends. How badly do I want to get back at them? Or rather, what do I want to get back at them for? Depending on what it is, I'll say this. Revenge is a dish best served cold, and don't expect any mercy. As for my favorite joke-

    4: Servant?

    Trickster: -it goes like..., yes, my Master?

    4: What's a plush toy?

    Trickster: ...

    4: Hey, don't look at me with those eyes! It's not my fault that I don't know about something like that! Or rather, even if I knew, I wouldn't remember!

    Trickster: Well as you can see, since my master doesn't even know what a plush toy is, she obviously doesn't have one. And for future reference, master, I suppose you can say it's a type of doll.

    4 (muttering to herself):'s not like I had a chance to learn about that kind of stuff these past ten years anyway...

    Kaiser: Well, there's something bothering me... Do you know where the name "4" comes from? In tht case, could you please tell us its meaning?
    And, Trickster, please continue where you left. What's your favourite joke?

    4 (with a slightly distant look in her eyes): I suppose... you can say it's just a way of identification. See, although I don't have a coherent memories of thing past ten years ago, I'm pretty sure I knew where I was. I was locked in a cell. In front of the cell as simply the number '4'. Well, that would be the close to the limits of what I can recall from that period of time. And as I no longer remembered my name, I simply took the label of my cell. But that's not the end of it. A few years ago, I ran into a certain somebody in the desert. Apparently, she had come to 'recover' me. The first thing she referred to me as was 'white eyed angel of death', but then she said something like 'jeez, whoever broke the fourth seal and freed you sure is trouble.' Well, that's the gist of it.

    Trickster: ...well, let's just say that I don't have a favorite joke. If it's good, I'll laugh and enjoy it, but I don't have a clear favorite. Besides, I don't really feel like telling a joke at the moment.

    Kaiser: That's deep I think. I'd look forward to your recovery, if my instincts were not warning not to do so. Well, whatever.

    Drake: A reader asks to 4 What's your tolerance to alcohol? and to Trickster Heh, do you think the same trick will work twice?.

    4: I guess my tolerance to alcohol is all right, I suppose.

    Trickster: 'heh...same twice...' huh? I don't get it.

    4: Perhaps you've alienated somebody already? Didn't you trick a few Artificers with fancy latin phrases before stealing some of their stuff way back?

    Trickster: *shrugs. Dunno. Maybe?

    Kaiser: Well, whatever. I guess then we can proceed to end this inter-

    Drake: Is your wish related to regaining your memories? How far would you go in order to retrieve them and/or attain your wish in this Holy Grail War?

    4: I guess you can say that. I just want to regain my memories. Of course, truthfully speaking, I don't think I really need the power of a miracle to regain them. As for how far I'd go, all the way. If it is necessary for people must be killed along the way, then I will kill them. Simple as that.

    Drake: You... How the hell do you dare speaking like that of others lives!? People aren't toys you can manipulate to achieve your goals, and you've got no right to kill them to achieve whatever selfish goal you have!

    Kaiser: I concur with Drake. However, maybe we should remember that this is a War. The instant you summon a Servant, you are ready to accept your death anytime, so this shouldn't be of your concern, right, Master?"

    Drake: ...

    Kaiser: Anyways, let us finish this interview with this braille thing that I uncoded in the meanwhile. It says ARE YOU READY TO LOSE, YOU FAKE DETECTIVE?

    4: Life and death aren't different enough for their value to differ by much. But anyway...

    Trickster: ...what's with this last question? Just how many enemies do you have, master?

    4: I thought that was for you? ...wait, braille?

    Trickster: That's what it is, master. You don't think?

    4: It's probably that Fujou and Artificer pair. Or rather, just the Fujou master.

    Trickster: Is she challenging you to a duel then? How do you feel about them? I note Artificer constantly trying to, ah, how does he say it, 'add you to his harem'.

    4: Don't really care about them one way or another. But I don't think I can leave this alone. Shall we pay them a visit then?

    Trickster: As you wish.

    Kaiser: Well, I guess we managed to somehow end this interview. You fine there Master?

    Drake: So life and death are pretty much the same? I don't think so. I haven't met that many dead people who can play videogames. In fact, the only thing they do is rot and sleep.

    Kaiser: I guess that's a yes. Whatever, let's go. I want to learn more about that analytic geometry thing.

    Drake: (Won't this guy ever give me a rest?)

    Trapped within my fierce desire, resistance is futile. Screaming for your life, nowhere to hide,
    Tonight we cross the line, your innocence is mine!

    Gin: Greetings and welcome to yet another little interview between Masters and Servants~! I'm Gin Ryougi, and this here is my lovely assistant; Seer!

    Seer: .....Liar, you said we were going to the library

    Gin: Ahaha, did I? Aaaaanyway.... Katsuhiro-kun, Marauder, how are you today?

    Katsuhiro: Oh, so you're the interviewer today, Gin-kun? I'm actually good, thank you. I've just gotten off a difficult moment some time ago and I have just begun to snooPING AS usual... Err, I mean, doing my own investigation around OLYMPUS! Forgive me for that awful joke, I just saw that meme on YouTube not too long ago. n_nU

    Marauder: And I'm still in the Throne of Heroes waiting to be summoned along with the other Servants. Baza, what else can I do besides hanging around this supposed Eden?
    (For those who have read that CCC doujin of F/SN about the world inside the Throne of Heroes, you'll get that reference!)

    Gin: Haha, you don't say? Well, I think we'll start with the question of the day for this thing; How are you liking OLYMPUS so far?

    Seer: .....

    Katsuhiro: If I were to be honest, it's pretty much what I had expected to, and maybe more. I've only heard a few things about OLYMPUS prior to coming here, but I have to say mankind has come a long way since we first discovered fire and... What's wrong, Marauder?

    Marauder: The little lass looks rather dissapointed. Why is she sad?

    Seer: Hm? Oh, no no you misunderstand sir. I am, oh how should I say it? I believe "pissed off" is the correct term to use at this time. The boy over hear promised to take me to the famed library here, but instead he drags me to this silly thing

    Gin: ...How bout this; interview and the library, deal?

    Seer: Fine, though I'm still mad...

    Gin: *sigh* Anyway, next question is for you Katsuhiro-kun; Were you holding back against Setsuna? Do you think you could win a rematch now that you've both seen a little of each other's skill?

    Katsuhiro: I must admit I was surprised when he was becoming more intense by the minute during our fight. I did gave it all I had, but it was pretty tough. Then Setsuna pulled that sword out of nowhere... I have his measure now and the next time he pulls something like this again I'll have him eat mat so fast even his ancestors and descendants will be hurt for centuries! I know I want to be a good sport and be competitive, but my good will has its limits.

    Marauder: Anything else you should add, lad?

    Katsuhiro: Oh yeah. I ended the fight the way it did because it would have been a big tug-o-war between my Creator and the Big Man on the Throne and neither of them would have enjoyed it for the long run. Besides, what other things can you do around OLMYPUS if you have a cracked skull or a split sternum? I had to save whatever strength I had for what I'm doing at the present time.

    Gin: Interesting, very interesting. I kinda wish I could've seen it first hand, don't you think Seer?

    Seer: Not really. Fighting isn't my, forte so to speak. If you don't mind, I'll ask the next one.

    Gin: Alright, shoot for it

    Seer: Okay, this is a two part question of sorts; "Since you are a Marauder class Servant, we shall assume you can use more than a few weapons. Do you have a favourite weapon though?" along with another one "How many weapons has marauder used at once?" Hmhm, this should be interesting~

    *Katsuhiro whispers someting to Marauder. Then he turns to the interviewers*

    Marauder: Ohh, that's an interesting question, lass! I've always had a fondness for the two-handed sword. Using maces, epees and axes are nice every once in a while; but for sheer power, defense and feel, the two-handed sword is the best. As per the other half of your question... Excuse me for a moment!

    *Marauder goes off-stage for a few moments. Suddenly, he jumps right in the middle of it wearing a bandanna covering his head and holds a sword and mace in his hands and an axe on his mouth, looking menacing, badass and cool*

    Marauder: Does this answer your question, lass? It's quite possible if you try after some practice!

    Katsuhiro: Always with a taste for flair, aren't you, Marauder? n_nU

    Gin: Ahh~ Nice touch I must say Marauder. I'd be interested to try a sparing match with you and that style.

    Seer: .....Battle obsessed nimrods.....

    Gin: I resent that.... Well, I think I'll take the next question. Hoho~ Katsuhiro-kun, this ones for you; "What kind of girl do you like?"

    Katsuhiro: Ah... That's a bit of a personal question, and it's a tough one at that. Hmmmm...

    Marauder: You must simply speak with your heart, lad! A good man makes it clear what kind of woman he likes and why, and I speak from experience.

    Katsuhiro: Marauder, please! *Sigh* I guess it wouldn't hurt to say. To be truthful, I'm a bit picky when it comes to girls and while I don't mind sharing time with ordinary ones, it is the extraordinary ones that come to mind. Specifically, they're the ones who may be in the same field as I am. The ones which you really have to work hard to earn their trust and win them over. They could well enter the kuudere type, one that's pretty icy when you first deal with them and the name has meaning because when you thaw the ice that's when Spring comes in the heart. I haven't had luck finding one yet in OLYMPUS, but I may have an eye for 2 or 3 of them...

    Marauder: This kuudere thing... I'm a bit lost about its context, but it sounds pretty nice from what you say. You Asian people can be so strange sometimes!

    Katsuhiro: That's just the tip of the iceberg with us, heh heh heh! I still plan on doing this, but it's still quite a ways off. It'll help me get over what I once went though...

    Gin: Ahh~ You don't say Katsuhiro-kun? When it comes to girls, I'm personally more a-


    Gin: *cough* A-anyway, I wish you luck with your little endeavor with the ladies, as one man to another I say good luck. Ahem, the next question is for Marauder; "What's your favorite food?"

    Seer: ....Also, for the sake of time, the last question for you two; "If you suddenly came into a lot of money, what would you do with it?"

    *Marauder laughed at the little scene, then everything carries on as usual*

    Marauder: My favorite food? Ahh, it has been a very long time since I ate something from my land and I can only remember so much! Well, if you're talking about current standards, I have to say Italian food is very tasty! I don't have to worry about putting on weight and I can eat as much as I like, ha ha ha ha! I'm also curious as to what Asian people eat, though. In particular, whatever Katsuhiro eats from his homeland.

    Katsuhiro: If I ever manage to summon you, Marauder, I'll be able to show it to you soon!

    Marauder: Just be quick about it, lad! I can't wait to really appear in this world. It's been too long!

    Katsuhiro: As for Seer's question...Well, I would probably buy supplies, weapons, videogames, some manga and a trip to the next anime convention! I want to try to meet Nana Mizuki and Yukari Tamura once and I have something nice that will conmemorate the event! *Then Katsuhiro shows a long pink ribbon with the names Nanoha and Fate sewed in Kanji with the actresses' names on parethesis* I have a nice surprise in store for them and I have a feeling they will love it!

    Marauder: Money isn't a big problem for me, but if I wanted to buy something it would be my land for starters. Then I'd try out that strange armor Japanese warriors used to wear in their wars. After that, it's hard to say what I may want next. I'm just a man of simple, yet particular tastes. One of those... katanas would be good too. I want to see what makes them so popular with these people.

    Katsuhiro: And as you can see, Marauder is very curious about our culture. Here's hoping I can teach him when the chance presents itself!

    Gin: Ah, I see~ Italian food is pretty good, though I'm more partial to Japanese food due to well, being raised on it haha~ Well, what do you think of the answer to your question Seer?

    Seer: Weapons, comics, food, travel, it all sounds so trivial to me... Though I can see where he's coming from, so I guess I can support it.

    Gin: Why aren't you nice~? And here I thought you were still mad

    Seer: S-shut it boy! A-are we almost done?

    Gin: I guess, that was the last question after all. Well, it was nice talking to you Katsuhiro-kun, and you to Marauder. I look forward to a chance to meet with you again, maybe even spar sometime if you'd like.

    Katsuhiro: The pleasure was all mine, Gin-kun. I do hope we become friends, and I also hope you can be prepared for Marauder. He does like a good battle after all!

    Marauder: Any good friend of Katsuhiro wlll be a friend of mine! Good to have meet ya! Keep that lassie happy, though. Ha ha ha!

    Trapped within my fierce desire, resistance is futile. Screaming for your life, nowhere to hide,

    Viktoria: Greetings. My name is Viktoria von Einzbern, and I will be the host for this interview.

    --- At this point, a golden-haired man with a grin on his face appears beside her ---

    Saver: The name's Saver. Hope it's not a problem if I accompany the little lady, here.

    Viktoria: Ah...

    Saver: Hey, don't give me that look. I'm just here to watch.

    Viktoria: No, it was just... unexpected. I suppose I'm still getting used to this.

    Viktoria: With that behind us, please welcome today's guests: Juliana Petronova and her Servant, Gunner.

    Gunner: Greetings to you all, ladies and gentlemen. I'm Gunner and this youn' lady ri'ht beside me is my master, Juliana Petronova.

    Juliana: [Written on a Sketchbook.] "Good afternoon to all of you, people, and to you, Miss Froste and Saver. You too, Gunner."

    Gunner: Ah, yes. With all due respect, Ma'am Froste and Saver, but my Master's...not much of a talkative person.

    Viktoria: I see. It shouldn't be an issue... actually, it seems some of our readers were quite curious about this. We recieved several letters on the subject after your interview was announced.

    Saver: Aren't you forgetting something, Master? You've got to start off with a classic!

    Viktoria: ...That's true. Tell me, what are your first impressions of OLYMPUS?

    Gunner: Oh, we see. For me, what I thought about OLYMPUS upon seeing it is along the lines of eh...wonder! That's right, wonder! Back in my days, islands floated on water, not on air! Aside from that, there were so many wondrous things about this city. You know, the way people lived, the shops and what they sold, the materials this city was built with...many things, aye! 'Ow about you, Master?

    Juliana: [Sketchbook] "Basically, I thought the same things as Gunner, except that I marveled more of its architecture and technology. I still do, however, ask myself what other surprises does this city hold, and I must find them out myself. As for now, I am enjoying on exploring the basics of this city."

    Saver: It's interesting what magi can do, isn't it? I have to say that this whole Master-Servant setup probably impressed me the most, actually.

    Viktoria: Let's see... of the questions I mentioned, this is probably the best one. Has being mute presented any difficulties with learning magecraft?

    Juliana: "To be honest, learning magecraft after being rendered unable to speak became such a burden both to my father, who was also my very first teacher, and to me. We all do know that words could become very important when using magecraft and up until now, I still have to find a way on how to cast certain spells. That's why sometimes I still feel a bit upset over it, although of course I have to live with it, until I find a way to cure it."

    Gunner: Eh...Master, have you found a cure so far?

    Juliana "Of course not yet, you silly guy."

    Saver: Ah, taking it on the chin and moving on -- I can approve of that. Good luck finding that cure.

    Viktoria: So... you were rendered unable to speak? Do you mean that you weren't born this way?

    Juliana: "No. I could speak up until 14 years old, then I just woke up one day unable to speak. We at the family think that this is the result of my Memory Partition training, and it's been two years since I've been rendered mute."

    Gunner: So do you still remember your last uttered words before you completely became like that, Master?

    Juliana: "Yes. As much as I want to say what they are, it would be rude to do so."

    Gunner: Huh?

    Juliana: "For personal reasons, to be specific."

    Viktoria: Ah, I see. Memory Partitions... yes, that does make sense. That reminds me -- we had a question about that as well.

    Saver: Already found it. Do you use partitions or thought acceleration in your day-to-day life?

    [Juliana and Gunner look at each other before she writes down the answer.]

    Juliana: "No. I can't. I'm not too fond of using it outside battle. I am ready to use it anytime, however."

    Gunner: That's a bit of a downer. If I had Memory Partition like you, I would use it everyday on anyway possible!

    Juliana: "Enjoy your headaches, then."

    Viktoria: Moving on from that subject... ah, this is one of the standard questions. If you won the Grail, what would you do with it?

    [The Gunner team looked at each other again, with Juliana nudging Gunner. Gunner nudges back, so Juliana starts to write down her answer to the question.]

    Juliana: "If I were to win the Grail, I would wish for it to cure every mute and deaf of their handicap. Not until I actually became one of them, I never would have cared for their plight and even if I was cured before winning the war, I would still wish for the Grail to take away muteness and deafness from the world. I was still lucky that I was still able to hear even after I lost the ability to speak. It's an ugly feeling when you want speak out your mind properly or you want to listen but you can't. That's all I want."

    Gunner: For me, eh...I would like for the Grail to, well, bring me back to life in this age. I made a lot of mistakes back in my life, so I just want to start over again as a new man, not some bloody legend everyone knows. I only wanted to help people, that's why I became who I am back when I was living. I did wrong. That's why I wanted to be a Servant for a Grail war. I want to start over again.

    Saver: Hm. So you could say you're helping your "family", then? I like it.

    Viktoria: ...It seems that we're taking longer than I expected. Perhaps we should start bringing this to a close?

    Saver: Sure thing. How about this one? A reader wants to know what types of video games you enjoy, Juliana.

    Viktoria: And... I would feel bad if I left Assa's question out...

    Saver: ...She did? I didn't see it.

    Viktoria: Yes, but it was written on the back of Matthias's letter. ...Do you prefer lollipops or ice cream?

    Juliana: "We, which means both of us Gunner, prefer ice cream. Especially vanilla-flavored. As for the types of video games I play, I want something like Grand Theft Auto, as I am extremely pleased with GTA: San Andreas. Also, something like Age of Empires or Civilization series."

    Gunner: As for me, I want games like SimCity, RailRoad Tycoon or Burnout series. Other than that, I usually play with my master.

    Trapped within my fierce desire, resistance is futile. Screaming for your life, nowhere to hide,
    Tonight we cross the line, your innocence is mine!

    Artificer: Hello, whoever is reading this crap. My name is Artificer, and I shouldn't be here. So let's get over this interview so I can go back to forging... Today's guests are Firo... Prochainezo, and his Servant, Lancer.

    Artificer: Thank you for coming, blah, blah, blah... What do you guys think of OLYMPUS?

    Lancer: Gyahahahaha. See, boy? I told you that this was unnecessary. No need to appease these simpering lowlifes. If you want to proclaim our presence, then do so when we crush maggots like him under our heel. At least if the wench was here, it...

    Firo: Ara, no need for that Lancer. We had this conversation some time ago, didn't we?.

    Lancer: Baah, fine. Play around if you wish.

    Firo: Thank you. Now where were we? Right. My opinion of OLYMPUS, was it? Hmm... a place of wonder like I have seen before. And... a keg of gunpowder waiting to blow up in everyones face, I guess. What about you Lancer?

    Lancer: A pathetic last ditch attempt of a dwindling race that has long lost all of its glory. There is nothing worthwhile here. Except the fights and the liquor I guess.

    Artificer: ...

    Artificer: ... Uh, done? Sorry, I wasn't paying attention. Next, we have questions from your *cough* Retarded *cough* Fans...

    Artificer: Let's see... What the fuck...? *Sigh* Firo... Lancer... Apparently some idiot wants you to pick one of the following... Ugh... Vanilla, Chocolate or Strawberry?

    Artificer: .. And since we are at it... What's your favorite piece of literature? Shit, I better get paid for this.

    Firo: Vanilla... I guess? Though I rather enjoy strawberries as well. As for literature... I have always enjoyed reading Miles Gloriosus and other Roman pieces. Greek Mythology is interesting as well, I must admit. And the Divine Comedy of course. As for Lan...

    Lancer: If well made, every one of them is fine, gyahahahaha! Good things are good! My preference is quality, rather then taste. I have no need for books nor have I any favorites among them. The only words a man needs is his own! The words of others are amusing, but nothing more but empty drivel in the end.

    Artificer: ... Absolutely. [Wasn't Listening]

    Artificer: It seems you two are quite popular. There are tons of letters here. Let's see if I can find one with a reasoble question.

    Artificer: Firo... 'Is there any use of that Reality Marble of yours in battle?'

    Lancer: Hahahaha... well, lets see how you try to weave your way out of this one, boy!

    Firo: Quite easily it seems. [Firos face takes a rather fake clueless expression]

    Firo: Oh whatever do you mean, dear interviewer? I am an upstanding member of the Sea of Estray and I certainly dont possess any ability of the sort. As a responsible magi, I would do my utmost to report all such people to the Association so that they could be Sealed and preserved for research and the betterment of magecraft.

    Artificer: Well, I don't know what he meant. I don't care either, so let's just... Oh wait, there is something written on the back of the letter... Damn... Another question.

    Artificer: This one is for Lancer. It seems the one who asked the previous question was a girl... Or not...? Heh, I bet not. Anyways, he wants to know how was your first kiss like.

    Lancer: Delude yourself as you wish, toy maker. You obviously have trouble obtaining female companionship. Or... [Lancer gives Artificer rather vicious grin]

    Lancer: ...or are you the type that has difficulties in holding on to them?

    Lancer: Anyway. My first kiss was... fiery is the best word for it probably. Now there was a woman. First she tried to gut me with her sword on the field of battle and when that didn't work she tried to seduce me in my own hall. A devil of a woman, beautiful yet devious as a viper. Though... that definitely did not turn out the way she intended it to turn out. At least not how she intended it in the beginning. [Lancer gives another of his trademark laughs]

    Artificer: I already have a female companion, for your information.

    Artificer: But let's focus on the questions. Oh~ Lancer~ What opponent do you like to fight against the most~? [Sarcasm, Imitating fan-girl]

    Lancer: Hoo... that suits you pretty well Artificer. Perhaps your talents are wasted here in OLYMPUS? At least in your current profession. Gyahahahaha!

    Lancer: But, which opponent I like to fight against the most? As I said before, a good things are good things, no matter the source! As long as they put up an enjoyable fight, I will enjoy fighting them. If not... well, trash is trash. Kill them and move on, nothing more. I have no intention of remembering the names of all the maggots I crush on my path.

    Artificer: Heh. The only thing I'm wasting here is my time.

    Artificer: This letter sucks... This one too... Oh, Look at this one! Now this is a real reader with a real brain. I would ask Lancer, but... The question seems to be for Firo alone.

    Artificer: Firo... 'Would you describe yourself as insane?'

    Firo: No, not really. At least not from where I am standing. Then again, most of the people involved with the supernatural are slightly... unhinged. In our world, traumatic experiences are easy to come by, are they not? Life in the mystical side of things hardly ever contains a happy and a stable life, now does it? However... I have no idea how I would be evaluated by a professional in these things.

    Artificer: Well, you have to be somewhat insane to come here on your own free will...

    Artificer: Ehem, it seems that we are getting close to the end of this stupid interview. Only a couple of questions remain. So... Firo... Lancer... Do you think you can trust the allies you make in OLYMPUS?

    Lancer: We trust them while we can and kill them if they are foolish enough to backstab us. Though with tha...

    Firo: Enough, Lancer. Suffice to say that until our allies show any inclination otherwise, we will continue to support them. Such is the agreement we made after all. We will be ready for anything of course, but still completely behind our allies regardless of that.

    Artificer: ... Absolutely. [Again, wasn't listening]

    Artificer: Ok, Final Question. This one is from me. You see... My Master... Is annoying me with those theories of her. She is playing detective all day, and she won't admit she's wrong. So... I'll use this interview for my own benefit. I'll prove she's wrong so she shuts up and leaves me alone for a while. Then I can put the second part of my plan into play... Wait, scratch that.

    Artificer: Anyways... Somehow, you knew Shiki's full name. Master believes you used your power to read the IDs handed to the students after the flight in order to identify her. Of course that's not possible be- ... Well, let's hear it from you. Is said theory right or not?

    Lancer: Baah, let the woman ask her own questions, instead of making her trained monkey do it for her.

    Firo: Now, now Lancer. There is no harm in talking a bit about these things, now is there? Very well, I will humor you, Artificer. You are indeed right on your assumption. No, I did not use my power to read her identity from her student ID. And that is all I am going to say about that at the moment.

    Firo: Is there anything else you would like to ask about?

    Artificer: [Ignoring Lancer's comment] Thank you, Firo.

    Artificer: And no, fortunately for me, there is no time left. I'm afraid it's a good bye.

    Artificer: Today's guests were Firo and his Servant... Lancer. My name is Artificer, and I honestly hope you won't need to read this corner ever again.

    . . .

    Back at the Fujou Dormitories...

    Rei: How did it go, Artificer?

    Artificer: Boring as hell. And You, Master...? How'd it go?

    Rei: Not pretty. [Shows what seems to be a bent piece of metal]

    Rei: I'm Not good at making swords, I think.

    Rei: It's because we lost that bet at the Casino, that we had to switch places like this...

    Artificer: Lesson learned...?

    Rei: Lesson learned.

    Rei & Artificer: Never gamble against Kujaku Senhime.


    Artificer: By the way, your were wrong with your theory.

    Rei: That has to be a lie!
    Trapped within my fierce desire, resistance is futile. Screaming for your life, nowhere to hide,

    Katsuhiro: Tonight in less than 15 minutes I will conduct an interview with someone I may have not even met so far in OLYMPUS, but I volunteered anyway. With me tonight is my Servant-to-be, Marauder.

    Marauder: Evening, lads! How do you fare?

    Katsuhiro: Just like the previous interviews seen so far (including the one I had last night), we will have a first close look at the Masters and Servants that will take part of the Holy Grail War and learn of their motivations, desires, thoughts and deeds. If you have any other questions just before the time limit, now's the time to send them in! Please enjoy the interview!

    Marauder: Katsuhiro! When are you going to show me some of those off-kilter drawings?? I want to see some of that Japanese art!

    Katsuhiro: Not now, Marauder! Just wait after the interview!

    Marauder: Baza!

    Katsuhiro: Well, looks like we now have enough material to get this interview started!

    Marauder: But Master, it hasn't even been half of 15 minutes yet!

    Katsuhiro: Hush up, Marauder! We'll get this done while we still have time left! *Achem* Well then, we'll now begin our interview with OLMYPUS secret agent man from the Taima faction, Zero!

    *Zero then appears on the scene along with his Servant*

    Katsuhiro: Hello, Zero! I'm glad you have taken some time off for this interview. Let's begin with the icebreaker: What do you think of OLMYPUS and the people inside it so far?

    Zero: Good evening, thank you for having me. I apologize murderer couldn't make it, he has been laying low ever since the incident with assassin and her master. How am I feeling about Olympus? well, you see, that's a very serious question. I guess...I am impressed by the image that Atlasia has tried to create, even if it also makes me suspicious. I have been less them impressed with the members of my own faction. They are far to showy and demonstrative for my taste. From what I have heard if this "Pop Kim" person, I don't believe I can expect that to improve much either

    Katsuhiro: Did you say that Murderer had a problem? Jeez, that's gonna put a crimp on part of my material for the interview!

    Marauder: Improvise and trudge on, Master! At least finish what you start.

    Katsuhiro: Right. Well then, just to be clear on this, what exactly happened between Murderer and Assasin? I can't picture that two of the more unorthodox Servants would have such a problem with each other so soon!

    Zero: hmm....I think at first murderer probably did it to spite me. you see, I believe in indulging my curiosity, its one of my greatest pleasures to investigate interesting things. The idea of the old man of the mountain, the fabled Hassan I Sabbah being, well, a child, rather fascinates me, which is why I agreed to interview her and her master. But...well, its murderer, whatever he and I feel, obviously miss assassin didn't appreciate his presence.

    Katushiro: Ah, curiosity didn't kill the cat today. Let's put it aside, for I have a quesiton from one of my sources: How did you awaken your Origin and which one did you get?

    Marauder: Well now, this'll be interesting.

    Zero: That's a dangerous question. well, obviously, I dont intend to just reveal the source of my power, its probably a violation of my traits just being here, but I can talk about the method of awakening a little. You see, the Takashi clan are a group that seeks the origin by means of investigating the human condition, and, after great effort, we eventually unlocked a dangerous but powerful magic.

    Zero paused and shuddered as if remembering great pain....or perhaps great pleasure.

    Zero: It was that of awakening what we consider to be a fragment of the root which lies in all of us, the essential origin. Our beginning, our command. are aware of the danger and pain inherent in simply transferring the mystic crest? Imagine that, but a thousand times worse. The procedure was fatal better then ninety percent of the time, withstanding it was like attempting to simply catch a speeding train with your bare hands, the clan was actually dying out because of the high risks but amazing rewards that were inherent in what we had learned. So that we might survive, we began researching ways to improve the natural resistance of our body so to make the awakening something that was survivable. Eventually, we unlocked a forgotten magic, our own special power, a new form of reinforcement which could reinforce the body in ways unheard of in modern thatamurgy. Our bodies became something which would be envied by even the most powerful vampires, or demons. It was the only way we could unlock the hidden mystery of our "root." I was treated such only moments after being born. I have no memory of my own of what it would be like to live without having my origin awakened, though of course, I do have other memories.

    Katsuhiro: That's very interesting, Zero! I hope you'll be able to handle it in your endeavours on OLYMPUS.

    Marauder: I have a question if I may, aye?

    Katsuhiro: Go on, Marauder.

    Marauder: Alright, this next question was sent by another person: How do you see your chances in sneaking into some highly secured building?

    Zero: Hmm...under normal circumstances, such an endeavor would be trivial, however, in Olympus, there are extra factors, such as security systems I have never encountered, and of course, the servants. For example, any attempt to sneak into a building guarded by an archer class servant would be fraught with peril. Gaining access to a building considered "vital" by Olympus standards would require a great deal of preparation, likely days of planning, and possibly allies or specially designed equipment. Actually executing the plan would likely require me to neutralize guardian servants in some fashion and to bypass inherent defenses. Suffice it to say, I would only consider if it the rewards outweighed the extreme risks. It wouldn't be easy for me.

    Katsuhiro: With some help, though, you may be able to achieve something, Zero-san!

    Marauder: Here's another question, Master.

    Katsuhiro: Ah, this one concerns your Servant, Zero-san! I hope you may answer with the best of your ability. Let's see... Oh. -o- How nice, someone has an interesting sense of humor. u_uU Alright, the question for Murderer is: Which is harder, getting data from the Zeus dome or stealing the head of the Einzbern dorms head's underwear?

    Marauder: Now who would make a question like that? o_o

    Zero.....I do not know what murderer would say to that. Personally, I would steal the information. What would I do with lady Einzbern's small clothes?

    Zero:.....Incidentally, that's the second time I have been questioned about a dormhead's underwear. What do people think of me?!

    Marauder: Pasherra, Master! We should move on. He doesn't feel very comfortable!

    Katsuhiro: Couldn't agree more! Next question is: Zero, what type of people do you hate and what do you think of your Servant? Does he think well of you?

    Zero: I dont really hate anyone. I would have to search past lives to truly feel such a thing. I like when people are interesting though, it doesnt really matter how or why, just....interesting. After my encounter with the gazelle, I was ready to ignore her, but she was surprisingly attractive, on....lets say, a closer look, so she is kind of interesting. As for murderer....he is my servant. I am his master. We will move towards our goal. That is enough.

    Katsuhiro: That's pretty objective, although I'm curious as to who might the gazelle be.

    Marauder: Here's the next question from another person: There is a certain blind girl who proclaims herself a detective and you her rival. What do you think about this and her?

    Katsuhiro: EHHHHHH?? o.O What's going on??

    Zero: I have no major feelings one way or another towards her, beyond the most obvious, that she is another denizen of Olympus. Perhaps she will be an ally, perhaps she will be an enemy, perhaps our paths will not cross. For the moment, all eventualities are equally suitable for me.

    Katsuhiro: Alright, then we'll see how it plays out, won't we? We have time for 3 questions, so let's be professionals and speed it along. The next question is: 'Were you to find a new ally during your stay in OLYMPUS... Would you trust them with your back? Or is it hard for you to trust someone?

    Marauder: *Looks on with interest*

    Zero: ...That is certainly not a simple question. I am often described as paranoid, but that is such an oversimplification it is almost not even germane. At the very least, I would have to take into account all known information about that person, and given the circumstances, the personality of their servant. I am the type who practices enlightened self interest, generally, I hold to a bargain once it is struck, if only because trust is a valuable and difficult to aqquire commodity. But could I trust trickster's master? Or assassin's? Or betrayer's? As murderer's master, I have no room to speak, but forming alliances would require trust, communication, and friendship at first, as well as shared ideals.

    Katsuhiro: Shared ideals... I wonder if they will accept me.

    Marauder: Let me end this interview now, Master.

    Katsuhiro: Go ahead, Marauder.

    Marauder: Let's kill two birds with one stone, lad. The latest question is rather interesting: Your cover is blown, and you can use no magecraft or any supernatural abilities... What do you do?

    Katsuhiro: That's pretty hypothetical, but who knows what could happen on OLYMPUS.

    Marauder: The final question from this other person says something like this: Hey there, the fool playing the wiseman, you ready to die? What kind of coffin would you like? I'll prepare a nice funeral!

    Katsuhiro: How charming and confident. What do you say to that, Zero-san?

    Zero: talk my way out of difficulty perhaps, maybe rely on a previously designed escape route? Or perhaps, summon aid from murderer. In Olympus, there are more options available. beyond that, I have no preference for a coffin, and little use for idle threats.

    Katsuhiro: Spoken like a professional, Zero-san. Maybe we'll meet up sometime in OLYMPUS; I could use a good ally who can provide connections from outside channels.

    Marauder: Just as long as he doesn't feel like we'll be stabbing him on the back. But we know better, don't we?

    Katsuhiro: Looks like time's up for this interview! Any final thoughts you wish to add, Zero-san?

    Zero: None, but thank you for having me. All the best of luck to you, and you as well marauder, during your stay in Olympus.

    Katsuhiro: I wish you the same thing! I hope that if you like chess, you won't be prancing about with a costume and an interesting helmet in OLYMPUS!

    Marauder: Err, Master... Where did you get that?

    Katsuhiro: It was a final thought from another person! I guess I should have mentioned it earlier. Good night!

    Firo: Greetings and salutations dear readers. I am Firo Prochainezo and today, I shall be your host for this little interview escapade of ours.

    Firo: Our guests tonight are rather the enigmatic duo, if I may say so. I am accompanied here tonight by the beautiful Ryougi Sakuya and her... rather "forceful" servant, Ravager.

    Firo: And...perhaps this interview end up being a bit less confrontational, then the last one I was in...

    Firo: God, I just hope Lancer dont run out of alcohol in that bloody bar...

    Firo: But enough about that. I do hope your trip here was pleasant and without troubles, Ms. Sakuya?

    Sakuya: *smiles but blushes ever so slightly* Of course Firo-san. *takes a knife out of random and begin to twirl it around her fingers skilfully* I'm glad that it will be you who interview us today.

    Ravager: A bit strange that we're sitting on this side today, eh Master? And you'll need to show more tact than that to avoid hurting the lady's heart Firo. I believe the word "Assertive" works better than "Forceful".

    Firo: Of course. [Firo makes a slight nod while wearing a boyish grin]

    Firo: Please do excuse my brutish behavior, milady. I was always told that I was a rather too... brash would be the best word probably, in my behavior. It seems that there are some things that even aging cannot cure.

    Firo: But, alas, it is time for us to move on towards the questions. While I hate to be the one following the masses, I have been told to ask this question. It seems to have become something of a... tradition, shall we say? Therefore...

    Firo: What do you think of OLYMPUS so far? What would be the words you would use to describe it?

    Sakuya: Hmm.....what was it the word you use earlier.....enigmatic? Yes, that's it. Although I hope Olympus will offer me more than scenery to draw my interest.

    Ravager: Interesting to say the least. Things sure have changed since my time.

    Firo: [Firo chuckles a bit]

    Firo: Indeed. Though I doubt that scenery is all this place has to offer. I would be sorely disappointed in that case.

    Firo: But now that we have gotten that out of the way, lets see what questions we have gotten from our dear guests, now shall we?

    Firo: [Firo shuffles around in the bunch of letters that were placed on the desk]

    Firo: Hmm... How about this one? [Firo grabs one of the envelopes and opens it]

    Firo: What do you think is the best way of dealing with your opponent?

    Sakuya: *twirls the knife faster* Such a troublesome question. I prefer not to "deal" with my opponent at all. Although if it's in self defense...then I will engage them close and personal. So if we do cross each other in battlefield Firo-san, please go easy on me.

    Firo: Ara, close and personal, huh? [Grin] The way you sa...


    [The office door is slammed with enough strength to almost rip the door off its hinges. Lancer strides in, obviously in a good mood with his cape bellowing and him holding what seems to be an extremely large bottle filled with some sort of transparent liquor.]

    Lancer: Gyahahahaha! So this is where you ran off again, boy? I told you that you should have just left this well alone and come out to drink with me. This... [Rises his bottle to display it to Firo] Everclear stuff is actually almost intoxicating!

    Firo: Lancer...

    Lancer: So? Who are the ones you are playing around with today? [Looks at Sakuya and Ravager, for what seems to be the first time].

    Lancer: Gyahahaha! I see, I see... Much better then that average-looking trinket peddler that was here before! Very well, I forgive you for tonight boy!

    Firo: You have to forgive Lancer. He can be... slightly overbearing.

    Lancer: And you are far too restrained, boy! Remember wh...

    Firo: Yes, yes. Greed, I know... [Looking for a way out, his eyes noticed something else in the letter he had read out earlier]

    Firo: Oh! Lets move on, now shall we? It seems that there is another question on the other side of this letter. Hmm... a rather... cutesy writing, would you give me a second while I try to read this?

    Firo: Ah. I think this is for you, Sakuya, but Ravager can answer as well, if she wishes to do so.

    Firo: How would your ideal date look like?

    Ravager: *nods* Calm down and have a seat Lancer. Enjoy the conversation for now.

    Sakuya: ....Ideal date? *a slight pause and even her knife stops twirling around* Strong. Doesn't have to be prince charming, but that would be a nice bonus. Mostly boys are sometimes dense aren't they? Although that makes them adorable. I prefer my partner not to be too chivalrous, a give and take relationship between both of us. *chuckles*

    Ravager: Hm me? Well, sorry to say I'm not interested in that stuff anymore. But that doesn't mean I won't fall for someone. Just that I don't have too much expectation. I'll deal with it when the time comes.

    Lancer: Baah, I act how I wish, woman. Whe...

    Firo: Lancer...

    Lancer: Tch.

    Firo: So you value strength? I wonder which kind? Strength of personality or strength of arms? Interesting, interesting.

    Firo: But we are getting off topic here. How about I pull out another letter. Lets see.

    Firo: Oh this is relatively interesting. Are either of your personalities dominant, or are do they both have equal control?

    Firo: I would add a slight inquiry of my own to this, if you dont mind. How would you describe your other persona? Unless that is a too personal question, of course.

    Sakuya: Equal control. *chuckles* And as for the latter part of your question....a woman who don't keep a secret is no longer a woman right? *smiles* Please excuse me for not answering that question.

    Firo: [Chuckle] As you wish my dear. I am not here to pry out any secrets you do not wish to reveal.

    Firo: Lets continue then, shall we?

    Firo: The next question is... How well do the two of you get along? Have you formed an equal partnership, or do you tend to work separately?

    Ravager: *exchange look with Sakuya* Equal partnership. My Master here is not very experienced so I will have to *flicks her nose*lead her by the nose.

    Sakuya: Ow...stop that.

    Lancer: Thats better then the boy at least. He has experience, but is far too timid in some matters. Hmm... perhaps it is the age they are living in.

    Firo: Haa... Lets change this topic please. No more rants on how spineless mankind has become during the time you were gone. I doubt our companions would wish to hear it.

    Firo: Now... lets see. Is there a person who has caught your eye? Who could become potential allies?

    Sakuya: ? If you mean outside our classroom there's a girl with red bunny as her cellphone. I don't know her name but I think there's more to her than she lets on. *smiles* While inside our classroom, I guess Katsuhiro for one, you and Seo.

    Firo: [Chuckle] Hmm... I think I know of the person you are speaking of. Liu Long Mei? Or is it Mei Liu Long? I am horrible with Chinese names to be honest. The phone strap is rather eye catching, is it not?.

    Firo: [Smile] I am also most flattered that I that you hold me in such high regard. I will do my best not to disappointed you.

    Firo: But alas, we are nearing the end of our little interview and there are only a couple of questions left. Or maybe we have some more over here, I have no idea.

    Firo: There is one question that has come up several times now. In a more polite form and at the same time... less so.

    Firo: In any case, it is no secret that you have become an... associate of one of the Four Devas, Kujaku Senhime. Might we ask what motivated you to take up such a role? What do you think of her?

    Lancer: A blind woman who is obsessed with something so worthless. Also she is stupidly greedy. Not that her greed is stupid, no. She is just stupidly superficial about it. Baah, her kind will self-destruct sooner or later anyway.

    Firo: Lancer, this is not your interview, now is it? Ignore him, will you?

    Ravager: How crass of you Lancer. I would learn to hold my tongue if I were you, lest your Master might be the one who will pay the price for your insolence.

    Sakuya: *hesitates*....

    Ravager: *smiles* Please continue Master.

    Sakuya: *nods, a thoughful look on her face* Motivation? I only needed her asset. Honestly, I would rather join her band of Nemesis but instead get caught in....*sigh* Nevertheless, I would be willing to trade money with battlefield experience. As for my thought on her? She's a fun person if not quite full of herself.

    [Lancer gives a rather vicious grin]

    Lancer: Oh, woman? Or what? Will you be the one who will defend your leash-holders honor? Bark like the little good dog you are. Though... there is no need to worry about us like that. I will put down all the rabid mutts she sends she sends after us when the mad wench finally decides to make her move. Until then, I could care less of what that woman thinks of me.

    Firo: Lancer! We are not here to antagonize them!

    Lancer: Too restrained, boy. Too restrained. We both know of what you think of the matter.

    Firo: That is not the issue here! ...Maybe it is better if we lead this conversation into more smoother waters. Now where was it. [Firo shuffles around on the table as if looking for something specific] Ah, here it is.

    Firo: A certain reader seems to have very interesting tastes. Or perhaps an obsession? In any case, one of our readers would like to know if you have ever worn a maid uniform. Any answer to that? [A good humored smirk is on Firos face]

    Ravager: *smirks* Dawww......ain't you so cute~?

    Sakuya: *her face turn flushes deep red after hearing Firo's question* I...I did not! Wh-why on earth will I be wearing those outrageous outfit?

    Firo: [Firos smirk never wavers] Ara? Really? Too bad, Sakuya, too bad. You would look real cute in such an outfit. [chuckle] A heartbreaker if I might say so. Not that aren't cute already.

    Firo: Hmm... lets see. There is a question about whether you prefer knives, blunt weapons or swords, but I guess that is already kind of answered... [Firo glances briefly at the knife in Sakuyas hand].

    Firo: So what else... Here is one for Ravager. Is there a particular Servant you would like to measure skills against, Ravager?

    Ravager: Well that depends on what skills you want me to test young lad. *chuckles* Combat? I can't say much since I haven't seen many so far. The Einzbern Saber bought my attention for one....but I don't mind if Lancer here is up for some barfight. *tiny smirk*

    Lancer: Oooh? Perhaps you aren't that bad at all, woman. Gyahahahaha! I am more then willing to take you up on that offer! There are hardly anyone even worthy of a challenge in the bars around here. All weaklings and cowards. Running away from a barfight?

    Firo: I guess it is time to wrap things up now. One question for the both of you. This seems to have also become sort of a tradition, I guess.

    Firo: What would be your wish for the Grail, Sakuya? And what would be yours Ravager? How far would you be willing to go to achieve it? What means would you be willing to use?

    Ravager: Wish? None. I'm just fighting to win. But well, if the wish granting machine like that exist then maybe World Peace?

    Sakuya: *chuckles as Ravager actually said that with a straight face* I....well I guess would come up with my own wish when I achieve it. As for measures taken to achieve it? I don't know....I think it depends a lot on the enemy. I guess I will just have to tread as carefully as I could.

    Lancer: Gyahahaha! Good words, Ravager. Good words.

    Firo: Indeed. I wish you well in your endeavors to obtain the Grail, Sakuya. Who knows? I hope you will discover the wish you want to see fulfilled. Or perhaps not? Perhaps, in the end, you will person who has everything and no need for a wish. That is also a happy outcome, is it not?

    Firo: In any case, I thank both of you for joining us tonight. I hope it was as enjoyable for you as it was for me.

    Firo: I would also like to thank all the readers that joined us tonight. Until the next time, though with completely interviewers and interviewees then.

    Firo: Until the next time we meet, dear readers.

    Trapped within my fierce desire, resistance is futile. Screaming for your life, nowhere to hide,

    Will: ...So, I, uh, guess it's time for that interview we were supposed to do...?

    Archer: Obviously. So, got everything prepared?

    Will: Not really, but I can wing it....

    Archer: You sure? You don't seem like the type who can do this without running away in fear.

    Will: Just... shut up, okay? And all we need to do now is to wait for our interviewees...

    Seer: ....Boy...

    Gin: Yeah...?

    Seer: This isn't the library....

    Gin: I know just, just go with it for a bit longer. It's our turn to be questioned it seems...

    Seer: ....

    Gin: Ahaha, anyway, um hi there! I'm Gin, nice to meet you, what's your name?

    Will: ...Um, well, I'm, uh, Will, your interviewer, and here is my not-yet-summoned Servant Archer...

    Archer: Hey. Since I want to get this over with as quickly as possible, we'll just jump straight to the question everyone bloody asks around here: What do you think of OLYMPUS, hm?

    Will: Jeez, that sounds kinda rude...

    Gin: Haha, straight to the point I see. Well, so far I think this place is really interesting, to say the least. I'm already met some fairly interesting people, and I can't wait to see what else it holds.

    Seer: Honestly, anything is better than it was from my time, and I must say that I find the naming for locations.... Unique, to say the least

    Will: Alright then... Since Archer's kinda impatient today, I guess I'll speed this up... For Gin, if you had to fight, what types of combat you'd prefer...?

    Archer: You're still too slow, you know? And for... Seer, why the hell do you wear that blindfold?

    Will: Archer, this is an interview, try not to swear...

    Archer: Whatever you say, Master.

    Gin: Well, when it comes to fighting I've been trained since I was a child to use a katana, so I guess that would be my forte.

    Gin: Pfft, y-your turn Seer, hahaha!

    Seer: *sigh* Boy, show some maturity will you...

    Gin: S-sorry, hehe

    Seer: Anyway, the reason for my blindfold is quite simple, it's a secret. If you want an answer I guess I can humor you with something like "It's a fashion statement" or something in that vein. Next question please

    Will: ...So, Seer, can you the future? A lot of people would like to know.

    Archer: ...Especially a certain pervy forger.

    Seer: Hmhmhm... Perhaps I can, perhaps I can not. For this certain person though, all I have to say is; Good luck, you may need it. Hmhmhm~

    Gin: ...You are one cruel little girl...

    Seer: I take that as a complement boy

    Gin: *sigh* I know you do... Sorry about that, next question please

    Archer: Look at that, that crappy letter had something good with it!

    Will: It did?

    Archer: Seer, if your roles were reversed with your master, what would you make him do? Would you bother to use a Command Spell to force him to do it?

    Will: You wish we could get that question, don't you, Archer?

    Archer: Well, what I'd say would be so mentally scarring they'd leave you in an asylum~

    Will: ...

    Seer: Hoho~ Now that's an interesting question~

    Gin: *shudder* I'm scared now...

    Seer: Hmhm, don't be boy, all you'd need to do is comply to my every whim and it'll be fine. While I'm at it, I'd probably make you stay in that other form, oh what do you call her, "Jin" correct? She doesn't talk that much, and I think she thinks thing through more than you do

    Gin: Tch, don't bring her into this...

    Seer: Oh there there boy, I'm just teasing~ I like you just fine as you are. Though you could try to think from time to time

    Gin: Fine... Next question.

    Will: ...Speaking of a separate personality, how long do you get along with yours, Gin?

    Gin: She and I don't really get along, so I keep control most of the time. Though I do give her control when it seems fit, or when I just wanna see how she'll react to the situation.

    Seer: I don't know, I like her fine enough

    Gin: That's cause you two have a common view, that is a dislike for me. Albeit her's is worse by far...

    Will: ...Um, anyway, let's get on to some rather dull questions, shall we?

    Archer: *Randomly plucks a letter from a pile and opens it* So, what're your hobbies?

    Gin: I'm personally big on traveling so I guess that would be my hobby haha~! I love seeing new places and taking in the scenery of wherever I go. Plus I've meet my fair share of interesting people on my little "adventures."

    Seer: I guess I'd say I enjoy reading fairly well. I enjoy mainly stories of old, myths and legends and things like that. Though I must say I do enjoy listening to good music from time to time too.

    Archer: *Goes back to the pile of opened letters, rereads it, and then shoves it in one of Will's pockets.* ...So, Master, spit out another question.

    Will: Okay... What pisses you guys off the most? And how quickly do you get angered?

    Seer: Hmm, other than this boy's occasional antics, I rarely get mad enough to say I'm "pissed." Though I guess lying and people who hold no trust to others really gets under my skin...

    Gin: Huh, well I guess there's not a lot of things that get me mad, but the few that do merit me getting mad enough I guess. I'll have to go with.... Bah, nevermind. Next question, please~

    Will: Jeez, you guys sure didn't tell us much... Um, last question I guess, I think I'm running out. Seer, why do you have a library fet- Er, why are you so interested in Apollo Libraries?

    Archer: Nice job, Master.

    Will: Shut up.

    Gin: Pfft! don't laugh, don't laugh, don't laugh

    Seer: Hm, I'll forgive that little "slip up" for the time being....

    Seer: Anyway, why indeed~? The reasons could be infinite, but there is only one finite truth in the end. Could it be because I like to read, or could it be that I find the naming intriguing to a degree. Hmhm, I guess I can let you try you're hand at figuring out~

    Gin: Huh, I think I might know, but I wouldn't wanna spoil the fun for Will-san here~

    Will: Jeez, you people are so annoyingly vague and mysterious I feel like hitting something... Anyway, I guess that's a wrap, I can't find anymore decent questions, nor can I make them up... It was nice meeting you, Gin, and you too, Seer... Archer, how did you think it went?

    Archer: You suck?

    Will: I feel so much better now, thanks.

    Trapped within my fierce desire, resistance is futile. Screaming for your life, nowhere to hide,
    Tonight we cross the line, your innocence is mine!

    Matt: Young Lady's and Saver's interview will start in around 20 minutes. So please send your questions. Gwaahhh...

    Assa: Master are you alright?

    Mass: I knew there was something wrong with that recipe...

    Assa: Ohayoooo!~ It's your lovely soon-to-become OLYMPUS idol Assassin a.k.a. Assa-chan! Unfortunately, Master couldn't come due to food poisoning, so I'm in charge for this interview! Tee-hee~ (wide gentle smile) And our guest for today are no one else but, sis Froste and uncle Saver! Hello~

    Froste: E-eh? Matthias... food poisoning...?

    Saver: Heh. He's tougher than he looks, I wouldn't worry about it.

    Froste: ...

    Saver: *grins at Assa* Hey, kid! Great to see you could make it.

    Saver: But... I think you may have worried the little lady a bit.

    Froste: ...

    Froste: No, I'm fine... it's good to see you too, Assa. *smiles*

    Froste: It's just -- this happened last time he made something... questionable. I only worry about him because he does things like this...

    Assa: Don't worry sis! Master said he will prepare some medicine as soon as he crawls out of the toilet. (smiles brightly)

    Assa: Anyway, let's get this started. Umm... If I remember correctly, there was some usual question I should have asked first... hmmm...(tilts her head) What was it again? ... Oh, right! Sis you have small ones too, don't you?

    Froste: Small ones? What do you...

    Froste: *pauses, turns red* Ah. I... no, I don't think they're small.

    Saver: ...Yeah, no. They're not.

    Froste: ...Saver. You...?

    Saver: Nightgown. Next question.

    Assa: Ehh? They're not? But they look like...
    (a piece of paper falls out of Assa's pocket)

    Assa: Oh, those are the questions I was suppose to ask. (scratches the back of her head) Tee Hee~ I thought I left them and had to made them up as we speak.

    Assa: So... How do you find OLYMPUS? Is it fun for you sis? And you uncle?

    Froste: The city is certainly like nothing I've ever seen before, even in books...

    Saver: About the same here. Though, I'm really more interested in the Servants here than all the shops and the like. I can't say I'm that interested in this Duel Chart, but I'm still looking forward to finding a few interesting people to share some drinks and stories, maybe a sparring match or two.

    Froste: Yes... I guess you could say that I'm just glad to be here with Matthias, and being able to meet people like Siegfried, Saver, and you, Assa.

    Assa: Right! Right! About Master... there was a question here... Here it is!
    "Do you think that your relationship with Matthias might become something more than platonic?"

    Assa: So sis, do you "like" Master?

    Froste: *looks out the window as she speaks* I don't think so... I think, at the time, I just wanted someone to replace my "sister", and that's why he became what he is to me. I guess you could call him my "brother."

    Froste: *looks back* But as for going farther... I think I would rather keep what I have. Other than that, I can't say -- I really don't have much experience with relationships, you see.

    Assa: There seems to be some more questions about your relationships...

    Assa: (with serious face) REJECTED. I'm not giving sis to that guy!

    Froste: K-Kazu...? I really don't know that much about him yet... he seems reasonable, I guess?

    Saver: *shrugs* I think the only thing Kazu feels towards Froste is maybe a bit of distrust.

    Assa: Mmmm... The next one is for uncle Saver.
    "So, Saver, I heard you've got the Golden Rule skill. What do you intend to do with the money you get with that skill?"

    Assa: Also...
    "We know that you use a golden armor during battle, isn't that right? You also have the skill 'Golden Rule' of unknown rank, so it's safe to say that you are a 'Gold Magnet', in a way. But... Are you greedy? Do you feel the need to have more?"

    Saver: Ha. People are curious about that, are they? That golden armor's a memento of my greatest conquest, and damn effective at that.

    Saver: Speaking of that, that's where my riches started. Victory after victory, and my collection only grew. It was never really about the gold, though -- my brother and I rode the countryside with our army, conquering anyone who threatened our family... ah, those were the days.

    Saver: So, right. I don't really feel any need to collect more gold or buy anything expensive, but the gold still keeps coming. Right now I'm just using it to help out my Master's family.

    Assa: Uncle, buy me some melon bread...

    Assa: Back to the questions, what are your wishes, and how far are you willing to go to achieve them?

    Froste: Mm. My wish is a bit... different. The fact that I was able to come here with Matthias and meet everyone -- that wasn't a choice of my own. In fact, it was something I could never have imagined. I only want to protect that miracle.

    Froste: I'd do everything in my power -- but I was born an alchemist, not a warrior. I'm not sure how much I can do other than support the ones protecting me.

    Saver: You're underestimating yourself. *grins*

    Saver: So, my wish? I'm searching for a certain woman, actually -- the woman I loved. Whether she could be summoned here or not I don't know, but I think I'd actually prefer to see us brought together by fate than using something like the Grail to bring her to me.

    Saver: *laughs* It sounds ridiculous, I know. I'll probably have to do that legwork myself, and who knows if it'll actually work... but I'd like to see that miracle happen.

    Saver: As for how far I'm willing to go... hey, I have to stay alive, and I'm rather a fan of Froste's wish, here. I'll cut down anyone who tries to take us out.

    Assa: Uwaaaaaa~ Uncle is so romantic!~

    Assa: Next, ummm... Who would you like to fight with and who would you rather avoid fighting with?

    Saver: Hmm. ...There's a Marauder I've heard about who sounds interesting. I never found someone who could best me in a duel while I lived, so I started looking around in the records here and she seems pretty skilled. Not to mention, she was called "suited to being both a bodyguard and a conqueror"... sounds like someone I could respect.

    Saver: As for someone I don't want to fight... I've gotten word that there's a Lancer here who I once knew. I don't want to say too much before I actually meet him, but he probably won't be too happy to see me again.

    Assa: And what about you sis? Is there someone you would prefer to not fight with? Also...
    "You don't have any Ice based spells now, do you? ... Then why were you named 'Froste'? Is it something that has to do with your personality, or something else?"

    Froste: ...Our allies, I guess. I was a bit surprised when Siegfried proposed an alliance, but it makes sense. They were reasonable about it, and I feel that even if this has to come to an end it will be... I'm not sure what's the word I'm looking for. Respectfully?

    Froste: My "name"... it's a memory of my early life. I'd rather not speak about it much, but I'll say that it doesn't have much meaning except to me.

    Assa: About you past...
    "You don't seem to want to rely on your Original's memories. Why is that?"

    Froste: Ah... how do I describe having another's memories...?

    Froste: I have my own personality, but -- how much of that is "myself" and how much is my experiences? When I was born, "I" was a nearly blank slate that became filled up with the experiences of another. Accessing her memories means accessing her personality, and my way of thinking was shaped by hers. Basically... I know this is not the case, but it feels like accessing her memories is overwriting who "I" am.

    Froste: ... ...I'm sorry. I got carried away -- am I boring you?

    Assa: Well, I heard something similar from Master, thought he seemed to not like what he saw in his original memories.

    Assa: We have still a couple of questions left.
    "You are fighting with another Servant by the pool. Your armor must be heavy. Do you think the opposing Servant could leave you out of combat by kicking you to the pool?"

    Assa: This must be from Pervificer. Idiot thinks that uncle is as weak as he is. Let's forget it. Next...
    "You and your retainers have gained servants, even ignoring the fact that your servants might desire a miracle, don't you expect some problems, perhaps even betrayal by servants summoned by your guards who entered the war in exchange for a wish?"

    Assa: ;_; How could you! You think I would go against sis? There is a limit to how much impertinent you can be! I know who sent this! You are just... You are just... just... A BIG FAT MEANIE!!!

    Assa: I don't know about uncle Raver thought.

    Assa: This one looks important!
    "I hear a certain Taima underwear thief has set his eyes on you, or more specifically, your underwear. How do you feel about this?"

    Saver: A pool? *laughs* I don't think a little puddle like that would be any trouble to get out of even if someone did have a way of knocking me back.

    Froste: My... my underwear? An underwear thief? Why would someone want my underwear? And how would he get into the Einzbern dorms to find any?

    Froste: Assa... I've never heard about this thief before. Do you know if he's just a rumor?

    Assa: It's probably that lolicon's master... Master said it's best to stay away from them...

    Assa: And so the last question comes from me~ Lollipop or ice-cream?

    Froste: We didn't really have either at the Einzbern castle, but Matthias made me some ice cream once. I liked it, so... ice cream.

    Saver: I picked up some hard candy on the way up here -- it's nice, but I'd rather chew it and it seems like the stick would get in the way. Now that ice cream parlor down in Demeter? That looks interesting. Remind me to take all of you down there sometime.

    Saver: ...Hey, that reminds me -- I still have one. Here. *takes a wrapped green piece of candy out of his pocket and tosses it to Assa*

    Assa: Thank you uncle~ *hugs Saver*

    Assa: Now you see sis, I got this question from a magazine. And it said that depending on answer you can tell if a woman prefer to suck or lick, but I don't get it and Master wouldn't explain that to me! Sis do you get it? What's this suppose to mean?

    Froste: I... eh? *goes to look at the page, but Saver takes it away*

    Saver: *coughs* Yeah... this was probably one of those two leaving stuff around and hoping you'd look at it. Artificer, maybe. I don't recommend finding out anytime soon -- that's just what they want you to do, you know?

    Assa: I-is that so uncle? Hmm... but I'm still a bit curious. Anyway this is the end for today! Thank you for coming and Bye-bee!~


    Assa: I felt something strange... Wonder if master is still alive?

    Drake: Hello everyone! Hold on tight and fasten your seatbelts, because in twenty minutes we're interviewing none other than Hakan and her Servant Berser...

    Kaiser: Could you please shut up for a while, grown up child? Tch. Now there's no way I can focus again into reading that book about the first Philosophers. Whatever... Weren't Juliana and Gunner the ones doing the interview of Hakan

    Drake: Erm... In that case, who are we interviewing?

    Kaiser: It was Alacia Starward and her Servant, Caster.

    Drake: Gee. Why do all magi have such weird names in the first place?

    Kaiser: I don't think you're one to speak, Drake Edelphius Walker.

    Drake: That's my stupid mother's fault! Well, whatever. We're getting started in fifteen minutes, so have your questions ready by then!

    Murderer: That guy was boring anyway, and he had something else to do, So I, servant murderer, will be your guest speaker for a little while Drake tries to decide if he really should use the bone saw to cut off his leg to get out of that room....I his ailing mom. Sure, that sounds reasonable! Would our guests like to introduce themselves to their adoring fans before we get started?

    Lacey: Where did Drake go?

    Caster: Said he was busy.

    Lacey: And now we have Servant Murderer?

    Caster: A-yup.

    Lacey: Uhm, should we be worried?

    Caster: Eh, it's not like death here is permanent anyway.

    Lacey: True... Okay then. Hi everyone, I'm Alacia but everyone calls me Lacey!

    Caster: Good day. I am Servant Caster. Pleased to meet your acquaintance.

    *Caster offers hand to Murderer*

    *Murderer grasps the hand firmly and pumps it a few times, it looks like he is considering throwing a companionable arm around caster, but decides against it.*

    Murderer: Pleasure is all mine my good man, thank you very much for joining us, and hello to you little miss, your as lovely a girl as I have met on Olympus, and I sit next to enchanter!

    Murderer: Now then, I am sure your fans are impatient to begin, so why don't you to tell us about how you are finding Olympus thus far, is everything measuring up to your expectations?

    *Lacey shifts a little in her chair*

    Lacey: Absolutely. Its everything I expected and maybe a little more! So many things to see. So many things to do.

    *Caster nudges her and Lacey coughs into her fist*

    Lacey: Uhm. Yes, so far its been a very good experience.

    Caster: Well, I haven't even been summoned yet, but this looks like my kind of place to retire. Of course there's the whole deal about mysteries and fighting, but hey you can't have it all.

    Murderer: Hmmm? Mr. caster, you came here on your own right, answered the call in exchange for a miracle, arent you eager to begin achieving that goal? And you miss Lacey, what is it you would like to accomplish during your stay on this wonderful Utopia so thoughtfully provided by our friends in Atlasia.

    Caster: Hah, please don't be so formal. Truth be told, I have little regrets from my time alive. I see this as an opportunity to live unbound. And since I'm not the fighting type, this means relaxing and enjoying the sights.

    Lacey: Well, I was actually hoping to just have a normal school life here. You know, as normal as anyone like me could hope for. Of course my family sent me here for a purpose, but my father basically said 'screw them'. I-is that... alright?

    *Caster laughs and pats Lacey's head*

    Caster: See, this is why I like her.

    Murderer: Well, I guess everyone has there own reason for being here, though I find a heroic spirit without a wish so strange! ...But you know, for some reason I find myself thinking maybe that isnt so uncommon here, oddly enough. Lets see whats in the mail bag?

    Murderer: Dear Lacey and Caster, what kind of people would you work with in the war? who would you be afraid to work with? Ohh, could we have an admirer?! Maaaaaybe its a booooooy, is there anyone who has caught your eye Lacey?

    Lacey: *sigh* I try not to think about the war, but I think I could work with almost anyone.

    Caster: *scoff* You say that now, but I don't think you can work with cutthroats Lacey.

    Lacey: Depends on who... depends on what's going on I suppose. As for the second question.

    *Lacey actually stops to think*

    Lacey: Ah, I was so preoccupied with being here that I didn't notice any boys... B-but I s-suppose I wouldn't be completely against the idea.

    Murderer: Why then, there is still a shot for me! Obviously not master, despicable fellow, you know, I even heard he steals young ladies underwear, you should be careful!

    Murderer rifles through a stack of letters and draws one out at random, after reading it, his eyes light up, and he grows slightly more intense.

    Murderer: A personal favorite this one....what are you Lacey, and you Caster, willing to do to achieve your objectives? Are you willing to burn every bridge behind you, set Olympus in flame, clothe yourself in the blood of those who called you friend if it means victory?

    Caster: Honestly my friend, you seem like a decent enough sort to trust. I suppose time will tell though. As for the question, I won't just destroy everything in my way. *chuckle* Besides, its not like I have the power to do so.

    Lacey: Ye-... No. Probably not. Even if it meant winning, I won't hurt my friends.

    Murderer: The servant of magic, not knowing how to unleash a little mayhem? Hah! you must think murderer doesn't know false modesty when he hears it! Well then, lets see now...ooh! This one looks familiar!

    Murderer goes into a long and obviously feigned coughing fit

    Murderer: *cough* Zero *cough* master *cough* *cough* oooh...sorry, must have a cold!

    Murderer then holds up the letter, points to it, and elaborately mouths the word "Zero" with a wink.

    Murderer: Wonder who this is from? he writes What did you do with those cookies!? was it poison? a curse or hex? hypnosis?! I am on to you! Wow, what kind of horrible, idiotic, smelly person could have written something like that?

    *Caster begins laughing uncontrollably*

    Caster: Oh to think that Lacey is capable of guile in the kitchen...

    Lacey: If the anonymous fan must know, all I did was make a simple cookie and put a small bit of caramelized strawberry in it.

    *Caster wipes a tear from his eye and calms down*

    Caster: Well, maybe he's just obsessing over it because he wants some too.

    Lacey: Oooh, that's a great idea! Mr. Murderer, would you like some as well? I'll bake him a tart or something.

    Caster: You do remember that this is all not actually happening right?

    Lacey: Oh, err... well then I'll have it ready if we ever meet here again.

    Caster: Truth be told, Lacey just has as much love for cooking like that Matt fellow over with the Einzberns. That's all I suppose.

    Murderer: It would be kind of funny to take some, pretend I bought them, then after he eats one, tell him it was one of yours, just to watch him try and pretend THAT didn't bother him! speaking of master, you know why he is smelly? he cant get a shower! something about being caught peeping on girls, I laughed so hard when i heard.....

    Murderer chuckles a bit

    Murderer: Ok, lets see now.......all right, this admirer asks Dear Lacey, if you had fought another master, and held a gun to him, thinking him beaten, and suddenly his hands vanish into his clothes, you only have a split second to decide, could you kill him before he even pulled it out, before you were sure he was going for a weapon? how about after, when it was him or you, could you firmly take his life to protect yours? Wow, serious. People aren't given you easy ones eh?

    Lacey: He peeps on girls in the shower?

    Caster: I heard that it wasn't completely his fault...

    Lacey: Oh okay then... uhm. For the first scenario, I'd probably hit him in the head with the gun. For the second, yes. If it was his life or mine, then yes.

    Caster: This is a war in the end *sigh* Not everyone can be friends, even if we wish it were so.

    Murderer: Fair but not weak, maybe thats a good balance. Ok, here is a question for the both of you; Caster is the servant of magic, and lacey a powerful Magi, what kind of things can be expected of your magics? Do you two work well together or share certain traits? What kind of synergy can we look forward to?

    Caster: Oh, how do I respond with tact... Let's just say we were not brought together by common ground in terms of power. My form of magic is far more improvised and rough.

    Lacey: That is not to say that we don't complement each other of course.

    Caster: Oh, certainly not.

    *Caster gives Lacey a look who in turn just shrugs*

    Caster: Well I'll let you guys in on a little secret and crack the fourth wall just a bit. I had better compatibility with my other potential Master. A boy by the name of Leto. Still, things happen for a reason. It could work out better this way.

    Murderer: oooh....tantalizing, is there a story there? Well, maybe you do not wish to share? fair enough, at any rate, our next questioner writes;

    To Lacey:

    'The Woman named Kujaku Senhime is blackmailing you, Lacey. If you don't do what she asks, she will kill your loved ones without a second thought. But you have had enough. You've decided to kill her. On your own. Do you... Shoot her with your gun...? Cut her throat open when she least expects it... Or do you let your poisoned cookies do the job...?'

    Murderer: Huh, wonder why the person was actually named out........That seems a little morbid!

    Caster: Wow, now that is one hypothetical situation. I suppose I'm already dead in this scenario, huh?

    Lacey: Well, assuming that I can get in the position to deliver the blow, I'd go with the gun. Its cleaner and I'm not partial to physical exertion.

    Caster: Well, what about the poison?

    Lacey: B-but... poisoning food is such a waste...

    Murderer: I was a little curious as to why obeying the blackmail wasn't an option. Then again, mature older woman subverting an innocent little.......oooh, what am I saying, excuse me! Anyways, moving on then! A new admirer would like to know;

    Do you have any affiliations beyond your faction? would you have trouble working with dead apostles or demons?

    Lacey: I have little love for my actual family. The one who sent me here to gather information for them.

    Caster: Heh, big mistake there I suppose.

    Lacey: Apart from that, I don't have much opinion of the Order. I don't see a problem working with other factions.

    Caster: I'd keep one eye out for Avarice though. That guy is... interesting.

    Lacey: Ah yes, Avarice. I look forward to... well I suppose I probably won't 'meet' him for a while.

    *Suddenly, a explosion is heard across the room. From the crack in the wall, appears Drake with a chain hanging onto his leg and holding in his right hand a zweihander*

    Drake: Well, this took a little while even when with my Reinforced sword. Now, let's see how I will kill him...

    Kaiser: Could you try to kill him with this teacup pretty please?

    Drake: *Smiles* Nice idea.

    Lacey: Oh my, Mr. Drake and Mr. Kaiser are you alright?

    *Lacey gets up and rushes to check them for injuries*

    *Caster turns to tell Murderer something only to find that he's already gone*

    Drake: No need. We are fine.

    Kaiser: Murderer's escaping, so maybe you should hurry up?

    Drake: ...Shouldn't you be going after him instead?

    Kaiser: Nope. I got no interest on him or whatsoever.

    *A minute or so goes by with both of them standing there silently*

    Drake: Uh, I think we recieved a few questions that weren't asked by Murderer...

    Kaiser: Maybe you should go on with the interview?

    Drake: Yeah. Alacia, the other masters really do know of your hyperactive personality. Do you think this hyperactivity is an advantage or disadvantage?

    Lacey: Uhh...

    Caster: Maybe I can give a more objective opinion. She isn't actually a dense person but when she's more interested in 'ooh'-ing and 'aah'-ing, Lacey tends to miss details. Such as the fact that she was talking to a Servant.

    Lacey: I think its good to be happy about life!

    Drake: That's the attitude miss! Yes, yes. Finally someone who understands the joys of life! This got me pumped up, so next question! Caster, how did you die? Uh...

    Kaiser: I think it's kinda rude asking someone who already went past that to recall his own death.

    Drake: How was yours?

    Kaiser: I'll answer to that with another question if you don't mind, Master. Where do you like the cut, above or below the Adam's Apple?

    Caster: Well, my death wasn't anything fantastic. In my final days I realized that I had done all that was needed of me. I accepted death as it came. If you're looking for something more philosophical, let me just say that I've put my past life behind me. I'm here to live this life to the fullest.

    Kaiser: I share your feelings. It took me quite a while, but I also ended up realizing I'd done everything that was in my hand. Next question... Lacey, are there any people that you are worried about/have deemed 'troublesome and to be dealt with later?

    Lacey: No, not really.

    Caster: Admit it, you haven't even really been paying attention. What about that Luthor guy?

    Lacey: Luthor? He seems high strung, but I doubt he's all bad.

    Caster: Optimistic, aren't you...

    Drake: Nuh huh. So, here comes another one. Uhhh, where did I leave it again... Ahem. *Blushes a little before nosebleeding*

    Kaiser: Sigh... Who do you think is cuter, you or assa?

    Caster: I'm flattered people would ask, but I don't think I could hold a candle to the kid.

    Lacey: Uhm, Caster...

    Caster: Yeah?

    Lacey: I doubt that was addressed to you...

    Caster: Oh? ...Oh! That kind of makes sense.

    Lacey: *ahem* Uhm, well I guess I'd have to say little Assassin. I'm just a normal girl after all.

    Caster: Well, normal in this place anyway.

    Drake: Well, so we're ending this interview with this last question... Uh, Do you mind if I grab one of your cookies? Sorry, but couldn't resist. They look tasty...*Drools*

    Kaiser: Master, I suggest being careful on this one. You know, there's a certain rumor going on about cookie poisoning...

    Lacey: Ahahaha, absolutely! I'll be sure to make an extra large batch for everyone to share.

    Caster: Thank you for taking the time to meet with us, and thank you everyone for the questions.

    (Unaware that they were still being recorded...)

    Caster: You know, I just realized that there are going to be other 'Caster's out there.

    Lacey: Took you long enough.

    Caster: This coming from you? That's a laugh.

    Lacey: So, you want to think up a name to call you?

    Caster: Hmm, yeah how about-

    (And there the recording ends)
    Trapped within my fierce desire, resistance is futile. Screaming for your life, nowhere to hide,
    Tonight we cross the line, your innocence is mine!

    Loli Panteon.
    Gunner: Alright, ladies and gentlemen, I am Servant Gunner and here we are with my Master, Ms. Juliana Petronova, as we interview one of our fellow pairs in the oncoming Grail War. Please welcome, Mr. Hakan...[Glances briefly on his questionnaire cards, then turns them upside down.]...Striker and the beautiful Servant Berserker!!!

    Hakan: Hello everyone, a pleasure to be here.

    Berserker: .....

    Hakan: My apologies, she gets like that sometimes.

    [The Gunner team looks at each other, then looks back to them.]

    Gunner: That's okay, Mr. Striker. We both understand if she isn't too fond of talking.

    Juliana: [Sketchbook] "Yes, we do. Especially me. Unless by writing."

    Gunner: Of course, you don't. But anyway, we must proceed with the interview. Good afternoon to the both of you, by the way. And here's the first question, addressed to the two of you, a pretty standard one...

    ...Uhm..."What is your wish and how far will you go for it to get achieved?"

    Hakan: My wish? Hmm.... an interesting question. I suppose I don't have any wish in particular...No, wait, I do believe I have one. My to see an old friend. It has been....quite some time, and I would very much like to see him again.

    [Hakan stares at a wall and quietly mumbles to himself]

    Berserker: .....Mine is the same as my Master's.

    [Hakan snaps out of it when he hears Berserker talk]

    Hakan: We are simple people, are we not? Gahahaha. Good though, I'm glad to know such simple pleasures as seeing an old friend are not lost on you Berserker. Now, next question you two! I'm finding this rather enjoyable.

    [The duo looks at them with a slightly disturbed expression.]


    Gunner: ....Alright! So both of your wishes are to see your old friends. Again. That's great. It reminds me of old friends too.

    Juliana: "So do I. Right, Gunner?"

    Gunner: Aye, master. We all do wish to see old friends, but it is very adorable or rather, awesome that you dedicate your fight to them! But yes, the interview must continue, so this next question is addressed to Hakan himself...

    ..."Obviously you are an unorthodox member of the Apostles; you refer often to your "potion." I assume you’re a magi who converted yourself, so what form of thaumaturgy do you utilize?"

    Hakan: It has been quite some time since I actively practiced Thaumaturgy outside of creating my potion. It's my own concotion, a false blood that supplies me with energy for my research. And before you ask about that, if you can think of it, I've researched it. This particular drink though, is centuries old now and most likely outdated with my "peers". As for what I use outside of my research...dear me, it's been so long that I only remember my basics. I suppose I'll just call it "Magic to protect" and leave it at that.

    Gunner: "Magic to Protect"?

    Juliana: "Very interesting, Mister Strikr, both your potion and researches, especially for an alchemist like yours truly. More so that the recipe is centuries old now and yet effective."

    Gunner: Ah, yes. I must say that your achievements in the field of magecraft is very impressive, with all due honesty, Mister Striker.

    However, we still have more questions to go, and this one is addressed to none other than...Miss Berserker herself! Here's the question...

    ...Without taking into account your Master's opinion... Who do you see as a good ally, and who do you clearly want to avoid? Why?

    Berserker: ....I honestly haven't done much in the way of research on those around me. And even if I had, none of the people I have seen have shown themselves to be trustworthy enough to be partners. Trust is a fragile thing that takes ages to build, and seconds to destroy. So I suppose we shall see whome to ally with.

    Hakan: Since she won't give you an answer, I'll tell you someone I want to ally with. Shizune. She's a good girl and could use some help, and I would greatly enjoy her company.

    Berserker: Master you know nothing about this girl or her motives, I think it would be unwise to

    Hakan: Oh shush girl, I know how to read people. How do you think I've survived this long? Now be quiet and let the interview continue.

    Berserker: ....

    Juliana: "Shizune?"

    Gunner: I haven't met her yet, Master.

    Juliana: "So do I, which means we can't pass judgement yet."

    Gunner: We can't really pass judgement with that choice even if we knew, anyway. But alright, alright! Here's another question coming, if I remember correctly, from Miss Rei.

    Juliana: "...How do you remember that?!"

    Gunner: Uhm...You know, Master, I sort of liked that woman. He he. [Rubs back of head while blushing.]...But here's the question, to Mister Striker.

    ...You are playing chess. Clearly, you are better than your opponent, as he is about to make a wrong move that will lead him to his or her defeat in one or two moves. Do you... Allow your opponent to do it, and attack with no mercy during your next turn...? Do you allow your opponent to do it, but play dumb and leave the way open for him to correct his mistake... Or do you warn him before he makes that decisive move, as a sign of respect?

    Hakan: Oh! A chess question! So many many choices....clearly I don't just allow him to do it and win the game though, that ruins the fun. If I tell him he doesn't learn, but if I don't he may continue to make the same mistake....Hmmm.....well, since it is someone who is clearly not as good as I am, I will simply tell them not to make the move, but I won't explain why. I will simply tell them they should not do that. If they do not heed my warning, then it is their own fault.

    Gunner: We...see!

    Juliana: "I, also a bit of a chess player, approve that decision myself! Any good Russian chess player might also say the same thing!"

    Gunner: Yes! Hinting but not directly warning, aye! Alright, next question! This time, to Miss Berserker!

    ...Are you familiar with the berserkers of the previous two wars? Would you call yourself more of a Lancelot or a Heracles? And how would you rate your abilities against theirs?

    Berserker: ....I am neither. And I compare to neither. Lancelot fights with weapons. Heracles fights with his might. I fight with neither, and for that, we do not compare.

    Hakan: Ever the evasion, Berserker? Fine, I'll simply continue answering your questions for you. I suppose she's more like Heracles, though their fighting styles differ wildly.

    Berserker: Master, please, there is no need for you to answer every question that is asked of me. I have given my answers, it does not fall to me to see that the one who asked is satisfied. I simply must state how I feel about the given question.

    Hakan: How you feel doesn't answer the question, girl. You must simply answer.

    Berserker: ......

    [The two of them keep silent for a short while.]

    Gunner: [Strokes chin.] Master, do you think he's a bit too...uhm...commanding with his own Servant?

    Juliana: "As much as I want to say yes, there's nothing we can do, and even I could make you shut up if I wanted to."

    Gunner: I see. But there we have the answer, she is closer to Heracles! At least according to her master! As for the strength of Mister Striker, there's a question here that involves that, of course addressed to him!

    ...Are you willing to kill? Would it just be enemies? People standing in your way? People who have something you want?

    Hakan: I'm not a fan of violence, but I suppose it's possible. Depending on the reason at least. I've lived a long life, and never have I killed a man, though I have been to many a funeral. I still remember the day little Franzy was a dark day for myself, his family, and soon enough the entire world.

    Berserker: ....You did not answer the question Master.

    Hakan: What? Oh, uh, I suppose you're right. Yes, I am, but not very eager to.

    Gunner: We'll take note of that. As for the next question, my master will ask it to you, Mister Striker.

    Juliana: "Alright. Gunner assigned me this question because we are very afraid to drop names here, despite him saying he had a crush on Miss Rei Fujou awhile ago. Now here's the question, still addressed to Mister Strikr.

    Katsuhiro Asakami. A suspicious person, indeed. But... Is that enough for you to try to kill him...? Or is there something more about him that bothers you...?"

    Hakan: I believe that boy, above all others, is trouble. He is a liar, deceitful, a thief, and has knowledge that should be impossible to him. He is, without a doubt, my number one threat at this time. Killing him is definitely an option, though a tad extreme at this point. I need to know more about him. How can he do the things he does? How did he infiltrate my mind without me knowing? I may not be the worlds greatest Magus, but I do have my talents, and no ordinary teenager, even in our strange brotherhood, could do such things.

    Juliana: "My, Mister Strikr, with the words you have used to describe him, you might as well as accused him of all the evils of this world. Or even sociopathy."

    Gunner: Aye. Although we aren't willing to hand out judgement here, we are also shocked with that answer, Mister Striker. We just hope won't say the same things with him. Please do note that we are just reading the questions aloud as they are, and they are in no way holding our opinions.

    ...To lighten things up, we still have more questions here! And the question is all about Berserker, but directed to you, Mister Striker!

    ...Let's suppose Berserker in her madness attacks an innocent person. What would you do? And, while we're at it, how are you going to do once her Mad Enhancement is activated? Keep her like a mad pet, or deactivate it once she's out of battle?

    Hakan: She won't. And I will do just fine when it is active. There's no point in keeping it active either. It just seems unnecessarily cruel. Besides, though not always talkative, when she opens up she's fun to talk with. But, that aside, I would like to address something you said. You claimed I accused that rat Katsuhiro of sociopathy? I believe that word fits him well. The boy is far too shady for my liking, and if you knew well enough you would stay away from him as well.

    [The Gunner team keep their awkward silence for a few seconds.]

    Gunner: Uhm...As much as we are interested about it, we are actually avoiding the topic about Mister Asakami...

    ...But still, the fact that you are deactivating Miss Berserker's Mad Enhancement is an example that every Berserker Master should follow!

    Juliana: "I agree. It is a very humane way to keep a very powerful yet very mentally fragile Servant. By that way, respect will be formed between Berserker and the Master."

    Gunner: Yes! And moving on to the next question...

    ...What do you think of your dorm head?

    Hakan: She may not say anything, but I do not think Berserker takes kindly to you calling her "Mentally fragile". And, truth be told, neither do I. As for my Dorm Head, he is pompous above all else, and feels a need to controll everything around him. If only he was better at it, he may succeed.

    Juliana: [Blushes beet red, covers face with both hands then curls down before writing on her sketchbook.] "I'm very sorry on that comment. Please forgive me and excuse my social awkwardness."

    Gunner: Uhmm...well, I guess since you have already described your dorm head, as pompous, nonetheless, let us move on to the last question, oddly directed to Miss Berserker...By the way, Master. Have you played this yet?

    Juliana: [Shakes head.]

    Gunner: Alright, here it is...

    ...You ever play Sengoku Rance?

    Berserker: ....May I ask what that is?

    Gunner: Master, do you know what is it? [Scratches head.]

    Juliana: "For all I know, it's some sort of JRPG where you play as a guy named Rance who tries to conquer an alternate universe Feudal Japan through military means. It is also an H-game as I know it, as Rance is also bent of having sex with any woman in the provinces that he conquers. That's all I know, as I haven't played it yet."

    Gunner: But Master, why should Miss Berserker play a game about conquering a country and ravishing countless women?

    Hakan: Yes, I too would like to know why she would play such a game.

    Berserker: ....*angry staring*

    [Berserker's stare suddenly scares the two.]

    Gunner: P-please, let's not fight here. Ha ha. Remember, these were not our questions.

    Juliana: [Squiggly letters.] "And that was our last question, we believe."

    Gunner: Aye! That's was our last question! Thank you for allowing us to interview you, Mister Striker and Miss Berserker. It was an honour. And any closing words you would like to say to our audiences?

    Berserker: Who asked that question?

    Gunner: Please, we prefer not to talk-

    [Juliana suddenly flashes four fingers.]

    Gunner: I guess there goes your answer, Mister Striker.

    Hakan: Then I guess I know what we are doing today.

    [Berserkers eyes flash red momentarily as she rises to her feet]

    Hakan: So long, everyone.
    Trapped within my fierce desire, resistance is futile. Screaming for your life, nowhere to hide,

    Froste: Please welcome today's guests -- Kimon no Kazu and his Servant, Invoker.

    Froste: *bows* Thank you for agreeing to appear here today. I'm sure the readers appreciate it as well.

    Kazu: Don't think too much about it. I just happened to have some free time, and there was nothing better to do. Or, to be more precise, Hime-sama insisted we'd make our presence known here.

    *Kazu glances at the bunch of the incredibly beautiful and ornate folding screens behind him, and the shadow behind them, only visible beacause of the two paper-lanterns behind those screens. The woman was laying down on a large cushion and a armrest, holding a fan on her other hand. It seemed like she was staring right at Kazu*

    Invoker: Banchou-kun, don't you think it's bit of a shame we have to hide our identity like this? Rather than that, it would be far more fun to let my honored name pass from lips to lips, spreading fear into every heart which hears it.

    Kazu: Hime-sama. I don't think that would be wise.

    Invoker: You sure know how to ruin fun, don't you? Unpleasant.

    Invoker: So? You, little had questions for me, didn't you.....?

    *Froste looks at the folding screens, rather doubtfully*

    Froste: Ah. ...This was your idea, Kazu? Isn't there something less... elaborate you could have done?

    *She lightly shakes her head before either can reply*

    Froste: I don't suppose it matters now. Before we begin with the readers' questions, there is one that has become something of a tradition here. Please, tell us your impressions of OLYMPUS.

    *Kazu shows a slight hint of grimace on his face*

    Kazu: No, was the only way Hime-sama agreed to do this.

    Invoker: And why should I expect anything less? I'm a princess, aren't I? Then I need to show some style and class, no matter in what way I am shown.

    Kazu: Well, moving on. My impression of OLYMPUS....? I'd say the whole place is like an imitation of life? No, maybe world? Maybe I shouldn't go that far and use such grand words.......imitiation of normal life. Yes, that's it. It's like Atlas tried to desperately attain the closest form of normality for people like us.

    Invoker: In other words, since they were powerless and could not change the world to their liking, they made their own, shabby world? Ahahahahahaha, how pathetic~

    Froste: I see. Yes, I can understand that -- I was quite surprised when I learned that there was to be half-bloods and demon hunters attending the same academy, as well as the other unfriendly factions. And I must admit that I was quite unnerved the first time I entered the Einzbern dormitories, with how close it felt to home and yet... not.

    Froste: *nods* Now, our first question. This one is for you, Kazu: Being a Master, you are familiar with the concept of alignments, correct? Which one would you describe yourself as?

    Kazu: are talking about the way to determine one's personality, right? In that case, I'd have to say......Chaotic Neutral. I have no shame in admitting that in order to further my own goals, I will make the whole world my enemy, if necessary.

    Invoker: Oh, always so melodramatic, Banchou-kun~. Didn't I tell you? As long as you serve me, you'll find that acquiring the miracle you seek means just extending your hand and catching it. With me, even if you wanted to pluck out the moon from the sky, it would be nothing more than an easy task.

    Froste: Yes... *shuffles through letters* I believe that we actually received several letters asking just how far you were willing to go to achieve a miracle. This answers that quite nicely.

    Froste: Ah, here it is. The other question on this letter is... "What are your feelings about the group that seems to be congregating around you and Firo?"

    Kazu: To be honest? Uncomfortable. Out of all of them, Firo is the only one I can trust. That makes it an alliance between one ally and three people who need to do the same things as I, yet have different goals. Goals that conflict.

    Invoker: Not to mention they're all humans........or, at least, far more human than you'll ever be, riiiiiight~?

    Kazu: Hime-sama, be silent. That is not the case, and......even if it was, it would have nothing to do with anything.

    Froste: That is true -- it doesn't seem to be an issue with Firo, does it? He is certainly "more human" than the three of us.

    Froste: Speaking of Firo, one reader asked just how you and he became allies. Is this something you would mind answering?

    Kazu: Me and Firo? It started some time after I became a mercenary, or more like a beast-for-hire.....that was some seven, six years ago. In any case, Firo was in need of someone to protect him while he was looking for artifacts in Japan. In addition, it was plus if the person knew his way around in that country. Since I had never even left Japan, and had spend few good years roaming it, I signed up for the job. He payed well, and in time, we became partners. I think the Gunship Island incident was what cemented it.

    Froste: Right, I believe you mentioned that incident before... it would probably be best not to go into the details in a simple interview like this, correct?

    Froste: So we have here a letter from... Artificer? At least, it seems like Artificer. The only worthwhile question here is asking what you would say to your past self if you succeeded in calling him. The others... let's see, asking how to sneak into the female half-bloods' dormitories... Invoker's alcohol tolerance... "how many Invokers could Invoker invoke if Invoker could invoke Invokers"... and a request for... my underwear? Or perhaps Invoker's, it's hard to tell.

    Kazu: My past self...? Well, most likely it would involve avoiding-

    Invoker: Artificer? That sorry excuse for a man? Ahahahaha~, well, if this isn't a pleasant surprise. To think that he actually mustered enough courage to send a letter in a interview featuring me. He must not know his place.

    Kazu: H-Hime-sama?

    Invoker: To think he thinks he has what it takes to even touch up to the tip of my toes......Ahahahahahahaha~! Simply ludicrous! Men like him, who try to make up for their inability at special things that happen between men and women by acting like they are popular amongst women..........I find them most hilarious. They are like bugs who try to climb up to my doorstep, intending to slip under my door into the warmth, only to be crushed under my foot. And the funniest thing is, I don't even realize it.

    Invoker: Isn't that so, Banchou-kun? You know, don't youuuuuu~? The fact that no matter how great of a man, they cannot attain such a miracle such as I. For I am the miracle out of the reach of every man, a princess so beautiful I could prolong the life of a person looking upon me, ahahahaha~!

    Kazu: Hime-sama, I think that is-

    Invoker: So, instead of answering Artificer's questions, I'll just give him the same answer as every hero who tried to court me in the past, all of them far more than he will ever be: I don't have time to be wiping bugs like you from my shoes, so why don't you just stay out of my way?
    *It seemed like the figure behind the folding screen was grinning wickedly*

    Invoker: And Kazu is too busy serving me to spare some time to kill you.

    *A deep laugh seems to come out of nowhere, but it is quickly followed by a man in golden armor*

    Saver: So, this is all you are, Invoker? You are infatuated with your own beauty and strength, and think yourself the better of every last man and woman? *laughs again*

    Saver: Let me tell you something, woman. The woman I loved -- my woman, before the fates tore us apart -- had strength, and beauty, and wisdom beyond yours. Yes, she was something more than human... she was --

    Froste: *in shock* S-Saver! Please, do not provoke her! We are trying to hold an interview!

    Saver: ...

    Saver: *grins* ...Ha. I see. Very well.

    *He looks at the screens for a moment, then disappears*

    Froste: ...

    Froste: ...Kazu, Invoker... I am truly sorry. Please, forgive me... Kazu, do you wish to continue...?

    *Invoker snaps her fan shut, but does not seem to be agitated by a bit. No, in fact, she seems even more relaxed than before*

    Invoker: Men agitated by a beauty that surpasses what they managed to claim as their own property......your kind never does change, do they? But do not worry, small girl, let the barking dogs bark. After all, that's all they're good at.

    *Kazu gives a somewhat harsh look towards the folding screens, but even he seems to be wary of not actually seeming too opposing*

    Kazu: Hime-sama, I'd like to say that you-

    Invoker: I do not have anything to prove. My birthright, no, my has nothing to prove to you people. Why should I bother for beings who cannot even recognize something like that? It's like trying to teach a mute person how to speak. Don't you think so too, Banchou-kun~?

    *Kazu, instead of answering, gave a meaningful glance at Froste, choosing not to care about the giggling Servant behind him*

    Kazu: Let us continue with the interview, please....

    Froste: Yes, let us move away from that subject... let's see, several questions about Invoker have been answered by now, so here is one for you, Kazu. Besides any grand goals you might have here, is there anything else you would like to do?

    *Kazu's stare goes blank for a second, and his hand seems to grasp around something that is not there*

    Kazu: Like to do.....? I haven't had any needs or desires or such for a long, long time. Perhaps, if one.....I would like to find out what happened to Tatsumi. On the other hand, it might be for the best that her fate stays.......unknown.

    *Kazu gives a deep sigh*

    Kazu: I'm not sure if there is anything a "normal" life can this can give to me, but that is something I'll just have to wait and see.

    *Froste watches Kazu for a moment, then slowly nods*

    Froste: Is that so...? However, you did have a reason to come here, correct? You weren't simply... drifting, as they say?

    Kazu: As I've said, my reason for coming was the miracle that they offered. Even if the chance that one actually exists is a miracle itself, I have no intention of giving up. A miracle does not appear to those who don't try. As Hime-sama has is something you grasp with your own hands.
    Invoker: Indeed. Banchou-kun, I promised that I'd give you that miracle. And that's why you're serving me, with your body and your soul......right?

    *Kazu gives a dry smile, lowering his gaze, as if nodding*

    Kazu: Of course, Hime-sama. With my body and my soul.

    Froste: *seeming slightly disturbed* Ah... yes. It seems we're running out of time, but there was one last question I wanted to ask --

    Saver: Heh. ...What about you, "princess"? Is there something you would wish for, or are you just here to "win"? Because... surely, a princess like you has everything she could ever want, right?

    *Invoker giggles*

    Invoker: What are you talking about~? Of course I don't have something as ridiculous as desires. After all, if I did have something like that, it would mean that I was not perfect, that I needed something to fulfill me. And, unfortunately, I have been perfect from the very beginning.

    *Invoker folds open her fan again, and makes a graceful move, as if dismissing Saver*

    Invoker: And that applies to everything. Even the so called "victory" you mentioned. After all, I wouldn't be perfect, if the victory was not already mine, no~?

    Saver: *chuckles* Whatever you say, princess.

    *Froste waits a moment, looking at the place where Saver was standing, then sighs*

    Froste: As I was saying... do you know who has been sending these letters?

    *She hands him a sheet of paper that simply reads: So how is Froste's warmth?*

    Froste: I received one as well, you see, asking about you... You don't suppose this is something Firo might do, do you?

    *Kazu takes the paper and reads it over*

    Kazu: ........

    *He then throws the paper away, turns his head to the side, as if to hide the blush on his cheeks that is so small it's almost impossible to notice*

    Kazu: D-Dunno.....

    Froste: ...? Then, you have no idea either?

    Froste: *sighs* Let's bring this interview to a close, then. Do you have any final thoughts you would like to share?

    Kazu: Final thoughts? No, not re-

    Invoker: Oh, you're not going to warn them, Banchou-kun~? About what's going on? I mean, even you must have noticed already, and we're not too far off from the next one.

    Kazu: No....what does not exist has not happened. It is only a problem to those who can see those delusions, right?

    Invoker: Ahahahahaha~, quite right, Banchou-kun. Quite right.
    Trapped within my fierce desire, resistance is futile. Screaming for your life, nowhere to hide,
    Tonight we cross the line, your innocence is mine!

    SAKUYA: Remind me why are we here?

    Ravager: Interview..didn't I just mention that few minutes ago?

    SAKUYA: Oh yeah......what a bother.

    Ravager: In any case, we welcome our guest Luis Sancho Diaz and his Servant Squire.

    Luis: Glad I could be here, ladies. However..... [Looks around the room] It seems that Squire is a bit lat---

    Squire: HEAVE HO!!!!


    [The farthest wall of the room falls with a roar as a tall, gaunt knight charges through. He then trips over the small table placed between Luis and the interviewers.]

    Squire: [Weakly] Haa...haa....Sorry I'm late, Doń Luis. [Stands up and fixes his worn out armor. He proceeds to stand next to Luis' side] Someone had replaced the door to the interview room with a wall. No doubt it was the doing Merlin or Maugis. But no obstacle will hinder my progress. Hahahahaha!

    Luis: ..................... [Face palms] This is Squire.....

    Ravager: ...

    SAKUYA: ....*start to leave*

    Ravager: *grip her hand before she does* Sit down lass. *turns to them both* I'm sorry, it seems she's not in a very good mood today.

    Luis: I'm sorry, ladies. He can't help himse----

    Squire: [Walks to SAKUYA and kneels before her. Squire takes her hand and bows his head.] Please forgive me, young maiden. I wasn't thinking when I attacked that wall. Clearly, not only was the wall enchanted but also my mind was tricked by my enemies' magic. Please. [Squire looks up at SAKUYA] Please continue, Seńora.

    SAKUYA: Ugh did he just.... *yanks hands off him and Ravager before retake her seat*

    Ravager: *chuckles* So anyway, let's get start shall we? What's your impression on Olympus?

    [Squire gets up and returns to Luis' side]

    Luis: Well, it seems to be a nice place. I mean, the most I've seen of it was the academy, the market, and the park. The people are also nice. Or at least the people I've met like Katsuhiro.

    Luis: [Narrows his eyes]But then again......."A wise falcon hides his talons."

    Ravager: *nods* Wise words. What about you Squire? Your thoughts?

    Squire: Even though I have not yet been summoned yet, Dońa Ravager, OLYMPUS is truly worthy of its namesake. A floating paradise in the sky, teeming with knowledge for those who seek it. It is as if the Olympians themselves had built it for man to use. And not only that, but heroes and heroines of all kinds call it home. Truly, it will be the place where my exploits will catch wind and spread like wildfire to all the world so that everyone will know of me! I can hardly wait to be summoned.

    Ravager: *smiles* Likewise. Hm, Master you came back?

    Sakuya: *blink blink* It appears so....

    Ravager: Well then why not read the question for our esteemed guest.

    Sakuya: *nods* Alright....*takes one* This one came from Zero and Murderer....

    "To Squire, your propensity for reversing the flow of combat is well known, but how do you expect to fair against other servants with similar talents, like trickster or betrayer?"

    "To luis, how are you finding your factions members thus far, are you impressed? do you expect to have any problems fitting in? "

    Squire: Hmmm? Nonsense, I do not need to turn the tides for the flow of battle is always in my favor. For behold my fierce lance which can pierce any and all who oppose it! [Holds up a spear. The shaft is covered with minor scratches, wrapping to hold it together, and several cracks. The spear tip is dull and cracked.] Also, behold my sword which dispatched many foes, both human and monster. [Unsheaths a sword from a rustic sheath. The longsword is aged and dull with scratches and abrasions littering the blade.]

    Squire: And look at my armor and shield, Seńora Sakuya, for behold their glorious shine and ability to withstand any assault from a knight's sword to a dragon's breath! [Displays his armor and hold out his shield . The armor is dented in numerous places and cracked in others. The dullness of the armor prevents any reflection of objects or light. His large, circular shield is of no better quality.] Know this, Dońa Ravager and Seńora Sakuya. I need no gimmick or guile to win my battles. [Puffs out his chest in pride]

    Luis: Si, Squire, we know. We know. Now about me. Drake seems to a likable person and it'd be nice to talk to someone who has experience. I think we'll be good friends. [Smiles]

    Luis: Everyone else in my faction, well, it'd be nice to meet them and hopefully be my friends. In fact, I'd like it if I had more friends outside my faction like Katsu.

    Luis: Say, would you like to be my friend, Sakuya? [Raises his eyebrow and smiles at Sakuya]

    Sakuya: *giggles* Maybe~

    Ravager: *chuckles at that* Now now, there's time and place for everything.

    Luis: Hahaha.....Vale, any more questions for me and Squire, Sakuya?

    Sakuya: This question come from....Kaiser. It's for Servant Squire.

    "Squire, do you enjoy literature? In that case, which works did you like the most?"

    Luis: Oh no.......

    Squire: [Squire's eyes burn with passion] Of course, Doń Kaiser! A knight must be intelligent as he is powerful. And as for my favorites, I prefer the fantastic tale of Amadis de Gaula, for he was a knight without peer. No one could hold their own against him, for he had the strength of 100 men! His sword, [Grips an invisible sword and assumes a combat stance.] with which he cut down many foes, [Slices and stabs the air with his make-believe weapon] granted him a title fitting of one of his fame: The Knight of the Blazing Sword! And his devotion to the fair lady, Dońa Oriana, and his knightly behavior truly makes him a pinnacle of knighthood. [Plants his foot onto the table and slams his fist to his chest in salute]

    Squire: But I digress. [Returns to Luis's side] I find comfort in reading chivalric novels and tales of heroes and heroines of the past. For truly those were the golden years of mankind.
    Trapped within my fierce desire, resistance is futile. Screaming for your life, nowhere to hide,
    Tonight we cross the line, your innocence is mine!

    Loli Panteon.
    A pale young man steps into the quiet room, settling at a simple table with four chairs. In his hand is a small steel box with a grate in it, which he gently sets on the tabletop. He places a simple notepad and a pen on the table as well, and a stack of letters.

    Behind he stands a red clad man with flowing, irregular hair. For once, no swords adorn him. In his hands are a stack of small dishes, and a hot bottle of sake.

    Sieg: "Haaah. I guess I better get used to this kind of thing." The scarlet Servant sets the four saucers at the table and pours warm sake into three of them. In turn, the young man pours the fourth. He sips, and sighs.

    Alcohol to bolster courage. And maybe smooth speech a bit.

    Sieg: "Today, we'll be interviewing Lady Rebecca Janelle Valentine, of the Dead Apostle Dormitories, and her Knight Class Servant Warder." He announces to the empty room.

    Sieg: "The Interview will begin shortly."

    Reaver: "It will be fine, Master. The interview will be fine."

    Vier: „Hah! That's not why he's worried at all, samurai.” A dark voice rings from the cage, but does not elaborate further.

    Rebecca flows into the room in her typical black and red outfit followed closely by her taller blond haired Servant clad in white and silver. She bows before the other occupants before dropping into her seat and crossing her legs.

    Rebecca: Ah, Sir Knight it's been too long! I must admit I have been looking forward to this little interview, haven't you Wardy?

    Warder drops into her chair while folding her arms across her chest and smiling roguishly.

    Warder: Hmph, I suppose Mastah <she reaches across to the others offering her hand> it's a pleasure t' meet ya!

    Sieg: "I-indeed. It's been a while, Lady Valentine. O-or at least seems like it." He bows to Lady Valentine, a smile on his face. When Warder reaches forward, he takes the proferred hand, bowing over it and kissing the back lightly. "A p-pleasure to meet you, Lady Warder."

    Reaver shakes Warder's hand as well, though he seems a bit awkward with the gesture.

    Reaver: „It is an honor, Valentine-sama, Warder-san.”

    Vier: „Whatever, just get to the questions already, wunderkind. Being stuck in this thing you made is not my idea of a pleasant vacation.”

    Sieg: "Ahh. Umm. A-allow me to introduce my Original. S-sort of. Umm. D-don't mind him. I-I made a familiar w-with his persona s-so he could help, b-but now I'm starting to question it. J-just call him Vier." He takes a deep breath.

    Sieg: "Ah. He's right, though. Umm. I guess the first question should follow tradition. What are your impressions of OLYMPUS so far, Ladies?"

    Warder raises an eyebrow at her hand being kissed but shurgs it off.

    Rebecca: Oh it is extremely exciting so far, I can't wait until I get to meet some of the other Masters and get to really show off my skills. There are some many powerful foes, I just might die hmhmhm.

    Warder: Ah, I'm also lookin' forward to facing so many powerful foes! I even hear that my very own hero shall be summoned I can't wait to show the world that I am the greatest hero of all time!

    Sieg: "I-I'm sure there'll be many good battles ahead, and lots of interesting people, but I don't know about dying..." Reaver grins at that, chuckling. "I'd love to see you in action as well, Lady Valentine... But preferably not as an enemy, at least."

    Reaver: "And now you have my attention, Warder-san. You make me wonder just who the hero of a hero might be."

    Sieg: "I'm s-sure we'll find out when the time is r-right."

    Sieg: "Umm. Next question, then. What made you decide to come to OLYMPUS in the f-first place?"

    Rebecca: Ah, a good question although I'm sure I have answered it before. I am after answers to my forgotten past, I cannot remember anything from beyond a few short years ago and something about the Grail War calls to me like some forgotten memory. Besides, it seemed like it would be fun.

    Sieg: "Y-yes... memories. I can understand that." He glares at the metal cage.

    Vier: „You won't get anything you don't earn, boy.” It sounds like Vier was smiling as he said that.

    Sieg: "Hahh. If only... But I don't know that spell... It does seem pretty fun here though. Oh, umm, feel free to have some sake. I-I kind of forgot it was there." He sips a bit himself.

    Sieg: "N-next question then. I-I guess this is for both of you. Is there anyone you left behind that you miss? Family, friends you'd like to see again?"

    Rebecca: Oh, why thank you <takes a sip> ahhhhh, it's gooooood, I'm more partial to whisky but it is still very nice.

    Warder: I don't drink...

    Rebecca: Your waste Wardy, now as for those I left behind, there is only really my dear Ebony, whom I have left in charge of my home. I do not know if I have any family and whenever I think of it my chest constrict painfully...apart from...<her eyes turn a scarlet red> Father, my inner monster roars at the mention...

    Warder: Hmm, not really ah led a good life though ah nevah Kingdom was left t' ma nephew, in good hands.

    Sieg: "Ahh. I-I see. So you're both... umm... I guess you could say 'free.' N-nothing to tie you down." For the first time, he starts scribbling in the notepad. It looks like he just remembered it. Or maybe he's just writing from memory?

    Sieg: "I-it's a shame that you n-never found someone, though, Warder."

    Vier: "Heh. Some of us prefer not to be tied by such things. Why don't you tell us what you think of each other, and your compatiblity, instead?"

    Sieg glances over at the cage.

    Warder: Love is unimportant on the battle field, ah had little time for for my Mastah, ah'm surprised that it was a Monstah to summon me but I think we are a strong pair! She is strong and a warrior! I expected nothing less for my Mastah!

    Rebecca: Hmhmhm, yes we have two different styles of combat but I believe we compliment each other very well and we do follow much the same battle plan. It would be best not to underestimate us...

    Sieg: *smiles* "Yeah. That's great. I can't help but think of what happens when a Servant and Master don't get along well. Kidneys lost, for example."

    Reaver: „Hahah! Oh. Such a shameful Servant, that one, but... Hahh. That was still funny."

    Sieg: "It's great that you can work well together. I-I can't help but feel that Reaver is going to leave me behind, though. Hahh, you're lucky, Lady Valentine."

    Reaver: "You have nothing to worry about Master. You still have much potential."

    Sieg: "Oh well, I guess I should go with a letter next. This one's from... Huh? There's no return address. Oh well. 'You seem to be a traditional vampire, but do you use Thaumaturgy or similar abilities as well?"

    Vier: "Hmm? This should be interesting."

    Rebecca: Oh, trying to descern my abilities so soon such naughty children! Well there's no harm in letting some information out, suffice to say I have some skill in magecraft in spells that...cut things hmhmhm, ohhh it is always to grand to see once's enemies scattered all over the floor, that brilliant scarlet red dripping over every surface while the life slowly drains from their eyes....however, it is not my magecraft that makes me so dangerous but one skill that is beyond it.

    Warder: It would be best t' leave it at that Mastah, you don't want to give away what makes you so dangerous.

    Rebecca: I suppose not, but ohhh I can't wait to use it and see the despair seep into my enemy's face as hope leaves shortly followed by their life hmhmhmhMHMHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    Vier: "Ooooh. Ahahahaa! You remind me of little Erzebet! Now there was a woman! Ahhhh. I think I'm going to like you, young one!"

    Sieg looks slightly paler. But... Perhaps there's curiosity behind his eyes as well?

    Reaver: "Hm. You remind me of myself, Valentine-sama. Perhaps I will present you with a gift one day. Yes. I think you would do well by such a thing."

    Sieg: "Ahem. Umm. Moving on. Another letter, then. 'Do you enjoy hunting down your opponents?' This was directed at Lady Valentine, but... Maybe Lady Warder would like to answer as well?"

    Rebecca: A gift for moi dear Reavy, why I am touched! Hmm, yes I suppose there is a certain thrill in the hunt itself, its like foreplay against a weaker foe...but I am not so much a monster yet that I would merely hunt down the weak, a strong predator needs strong prey and the thrill of fighting one who could end me is just as enjoyable as slaughter if not more so.

    Warder: Hmph, I prefer a straight up fight! I don't like chasing rabbits...

    Rebecca: Hmhmhm, to each his own I suppose then...

    Sieg: "Hmmm. Fox and bear? Or perhaps panther and bear? I can live with that. I like proving my ability as well. The chase... No, I think I like an open challenge better."

    Vier: "Yes. Having strength is best when others know of it! If only...

    Sieg: "Ah. Stop right there. Once you get started, you don't stop."

    A grumbling from the cage.

    Sieg: "Hmm. While we're on challenges though, are there any types of opponents you especially like to fight? Or, for that matter, avoid?"

    Warder: As long as they are strong ah don't care! Ah'll face any challenger man, beast, demon or even god!

    Rebecca: Hmhmhm, yes as long as they are strong I don't really care. After all the more powerful the opponent, the greater the victory don't you think? I have never faced a homunculi before, hmhmhm perhaps we shall play a little in this war Sir Knight?

    Vier: "Ahhh. That sounds quite fun, my dear! Yes. I'd love a fine dance in the evening!"

    Reaver: "It would be my honor to face you, be it a duel or merely sparring."

    Sieg: "Uhhhhh... Um. I kind of hope this isn't a democracy." He sighs. "I guess. But I'd really hate to take it too seriously."

    Sieg: "Ah. Umm, this question kind of related to that, anyway, so I guess it works out. 'Would you rather let a defeated enemy live, or go ahead and kill them?"

    Rebecca: It is an insult to a strong foe to not go for the final blow in a true battle to the death, but if they bore me I may let them go and are off limits.

    Warder: Yes, ah second that. Ah don't 'hink a weak enemy should be cut down before they reach their prime...

    Sieg: "Hmmm. That's... Surprising. N-not about the children, I mean, but the other. So, you're someone who likes it when an enemy can come back for a rematch."

    Sieg: "Ok then. A letter now. Ahem 'Do you wish to... uuuuuhhhh." He looks in surprise at the letter in his hand. "Is this thing serious?" He shows it to Reaver, who bursts out laughing.

    Reaver: "It seems you've made friends already, Valentine-sama! He manages to squeeze out between laughs.

    Sieg: "Ummm. Sorry. It says 'Do you wish to die?' No sender listed. Anyone you might know?"

    Rebecca: Hmhmhmh how very charming and too the point, I like that, perhaps from that darling little girl of my kind, she wants to play and she's just my type as well. Technically I am already dead and I don't really have much to live for, but final death at the hands of a truly powerful enemy would be grand, but I will make them work for it.

    Warder: Ah dislike you thinkin' like that are a strong woman, you shouldn't think of defeat only victory!

    Rebecca: But wouldn't you like to rest Wardy? If you could choose to pass on instead of returning to the Throne to be summoned again wouldn't you take it? Besides, there are no immortals and death will come to me sooner or later, I plan to embrace it with a smile and no regrets...

    Warder: ...

    Vier: "Bah! Life is something to be enjoyed, young one. It does not matter if it's your own, or the life of someone else as you wring it from them. You should appreciate what you have there!"

    Sieg: "I agree, I think. With part of that anyway. We Homunculi often have very short lives, so we learn that every moment is precious. Rushing to your death accomplishes nothing but waste."

    Reaver: "Perhaps, Master. But it is the warrior's honor to die on the battlefield. It is in those final moments that they know the true measure of their lives. To die in glory against one who is justly stronger than yourself... There is indeed a poetic beauty in such a thing."

    Sieg looks at Reaver askance.

    Sieg: "How about a cheerier subject?"He unfolds a letter."'What do you think of the Einzberns you've made acquantainces with?" Sieg smiles as he looks at the the handwriting.

    Rebecca: Ah yes something much cheerier, I do so detest melancholy it makes me feel like a vampire from a cheap romance novel. Hmhmhm, I have spent the majorit of my time with Matty so far and I must admit he is very charming and I am sure we will get along fine, as for the Princess we have yet to really talk and I believe she may be a little put off by me and as for you Sir Knight you are a sweet one, hmhmhm I could just gobble you up. <places a hand on her chin in thought> I do find it odd though, part of me really wants to kill Matty, is that a bad thing?

    Sieg's eyes bulge a little at that.
    Sieg: "Ummm. That's probably a bad thing. But, then again, he does like taking risks. You might be his type, after all. I think Lady Froste is just a bit... umm. Out of her element right now. I'm sure things will work out."

    Sieg: "And 'gobbling me up'... Ummm."

    Sieg starts blushing. He lowers his face to hide it, and coughs into his hand.

    Vier: "Kihihihihihahahahaaa! Ah yes, please do get 'gobbled up' by the lady!"

    Sieg blushes more deeply, and rolls the cage over. A stream of curses flows out of the little metal box, and Reaver, who had been chuckling for a while now, starts laughing in earnest again.

    Sieg tries to hide his blush by lowering his head, clearing his throat.

    Sieg: "Umm. Moving on."

    Sieg: "What kind of people do you find interesting? Do you prefer to work alone, or with friends and allies?"

    Rebecca: If find all sorts of people interesting really, in particularly the Churchies I wish to debate about why they think my kind should die? But it has just been me and Ebony for so long that contact with anyone is interesting now as for how I work let's just say I'm <she flashes a fanged grin> flexable, I really don't mind working with others but I will probably set off on my own more often than not.

    Warder: Ah to prefer to work alone, ah always have in the past and ah never failed. Even when ah died, I still was the victor.

    Rebecca: Hmhmhm, I guess in the end we will probably investigate seperately from the others but drop by to lend a hand to our friends in need every now and then.

    "Ah. That's reassuring. It'd be kind of depressing if we worked alone all the time."

    He reaches for his sake dish, brushing the pile of letters. One falls off the table, only to be caught by Reaver. As Sieg takes a sip of the liqour, Reaver reads something from the back of the letter. A smile spreads across his face, and he starts chuckling.

    Reaver: "What is your secret for luring in the opposite sex, potential lovers?"

    The second that question leaves his mouth... Sieg swallows hard and breaks into a fit of coughing.

    Sieg: "A-assa-chan!"

    Rebecca: Hmhmhm <grins> Who says it is only the opposite sex I am interested in? I don't really have a secret but I guess it is that men like a confidant woman perhaps? Really, I just do what comes naturally and it seems to work out don't you think so Sir Knight?

    Sieg: "Umm. Yeah, I'd have to say that works..." Sieg is still blushing though. "Natural, huh..."

    Vier: "Hah. Even outside of your head, I can tell what you're thinking of. It's that ability, isn't it? Hehehehe."

    Sieg: "A-am not! That's not what that's for!"

    Vier: "See. Caught you."

    Reaver: "Much appreciated, Valentine-sama. Assa-chan will be pleased to hear. Still, she hardly needs such advice..." His eyes seem to look off into the distance for a moment.

    Sieg: "F-fine! Another letter then!" He yanks open another letter and reads it out loud before really looking. "Rebecca, are you an S or an M?"
    And then his mouth drops open, his face turning red as a beet.

    Both Reaver and Vier bust out laughing.

    Rebecca: Hahahaha! Am I really that transparent? I'm a little of both I suppose, the monster in me takes pleasure in other's pain and as for this body of mine hmhmhm pain and pleasure are one and the same.

    Warder: ...what's an S and an M?

    Vier: "Yes. Explain it for the lovely lady, would you wunderkind? We'd all be ever so grateful. In fact, I'm quite certain Reaver has not heard the term, either. Hahahahahahaaaaahahaa"

    Sieg turns the cage so that the mesh in the front is pressed against the table. More curses stream from within.

    Reaver: "Master? He is correct. I have not heard this phrase before. What does it mean?"

    Sieg looks mortified.

    Sieg: "I-it's a t-term for s-someone's s-sexual interests... W-whether t-they e-enjoy e-experiencing pain wh-while they h-have sex or, w-whether t-they l-like to cause it. M s-stands f-for M-masochist, a-and S is S-sadist. "

    Reaver: "Ah. I see. Why does this bother you so much, Master? Is it not natural?

    Sieg just swallows hard.

    Rebecca: <hugs Sieg's head into her chest> My aren't you just the most precious thing!

    Warder: Ohhh, is that why you have a dungeon Mastah?

    Rebecca: <continuing to hug Sieg> It's not a dungeon Wardy, it's my play room.

    Sieg: „Mustresistnosebleedmustresistnosebleedmustresistn osebleedmustresistnosebleedmustresistnosebleedmust resistnosebleedmustre sistnosebleedmustresistnosebleedmustresistnoseblee dmustresistnosebleedmustresistnosebleedmustresistn osebleedmustresistnos ebleed.”

    Sieg collapses from overload.

    Vier: "Ahhhhahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. Oh! Oh! I think you might kill him that way, Lady Valentine! Ahahaha. From one heaven to another! Ahhh. Reaver, since I can't seem to see much outside of this wretched cage. Would you be so kind as to let me out, so I can finish the interview? I don't believe the wunderkind will be able to continue for a while."

    Reaver: "Master advised that releasing you would be a bad idea. I can continue by myself until Master recovers his senses."

    Vier: "It will be fine. I'll be on my best behavior. And besides, am I not a part of your Master as well?"

    Reaver: "Very well.”

    Reaver turns the cage back over and unlatches the door. Out steps a tiny version of Sieg, though a bit more gaunt, in appearance. However, his coat, seems to be, no is a pair of leathery wings covered in black fuzz. It seems the animal used was a bat.

    The tiny figure walks over the table to the stack of letters and notebooks, kicking pages to turn them.

    Vier: „Hmm. It seems the next question is directed at both of you lovely ladies. Do you have any interests you'd like to share with us? Movies, books, music, sports or activities you like to do. That sort of thing."

    Rebecca: Awww poor Knight, maybe I was a tad forward <continues to cradle Sieg's head to her> hmmmm interests to tell the truth I do enjoy the occasional vampire novel or movie, it is always interesting to see how humans see our kind don't you think, other than that I enjoy tea playing the violin and football not soccer football. How about you dear Wardy?

    Warder: Ah have no time for such things, all that matters is that ah prove ah am the greatest hero of all time.

    Rebecca: But surely there is something you enjoy? Beyond your apparent exhibitionism that is...

    Warder:...swimming...I like to swim...

    Reaver: "M-master? Are you all right?"

    Vier: "Hah! He's fine. He just gets like that when someone shows interest in him. Maybe you should play around with him some more, Miss Valentine. He's full of surprises. I'm sure you'd find them quite interesting. But you know, I wouldn't have taken you for the football type. Wrestling, perhaps, or gymnastics, but not football."

    Vier glances at the form of Warder, a measuring look from head to toe.

    Vier: "Hmmm. I think you'd look rather nice in a swimsuit. A one piece like what the Japanese students wear in their schools. Can we expect to see you grace the school's pool with your presence?"

    Rebecca: I am a skilled gymnast and very proficient hand to hand combat, however I use them both so much in battle that they have lost any meaning as hobbies...

    Warder: Swim...suit? Mastah, what is a swimsuit?

    Rebecca: Oh yes, you come from a time before such things don't you Wardy? Well a swimsuit is a garment worn when one goes swimming.

    Warder: Ah've no need for somethin' like that, too constrictive...

    Rebecca: Ahh, you prefer to swim oh-naturale is that it Wardy?

    Vier: "Hmhmm. Sounds like fun. Heh. I bet you'll be very popular, then."

    Reaver sips a bit of sake, and then speaks up.

    Reaver: "Perhaps we should continue?"

    Vier: "Eh? I suppose so. So, Warder, how do you think you'll fare against some of the other Servants, especially ones like Invoker and the Duel Chart higher-ups?"

    Warder: Ah'm not worried, after all ah'm the greatest hero that evah lived! Ah'll trample every Servant that gets in my way! <Warder jumps to her feet> Ah'll cut down anyone whether they're man, demon or even God! Invokah is just another chance to prove my greatness! For I! AM! -

    Rebecca: Maybe it would be best not to tip our hand so earlier Wardy, although that being said I doubt anyone hasn't realised just who you are...

    Warder: Oh...sorry Mastah, ah got carried away again...

    Rebecca: Quite, no worries Wardy I find it rather charming and I am sure Vokey will to. Hmhmhm that shall be a most glorious battle, I can hardly wait myself.

    Vier: "Hmmhm. It's quite alright. Enthusiasm is a wonderful thing to have in a competition, yes? And besides, where would a legendary hero be without her pride?"

    A monstrous, sharp-toothed grin passes over Reaver's face, his eyes hidden behind his cloud of unruly hair.

    Reaver: "Yes, I think I will enjoy a match with you, Servant Warder!"

    Vier: "Haah. I suppose I should bother with some more of these questions, then. Hmmm. Ooooh. These look to be amusing. Warder, so you like being a member of your Servant Class, or would you have preferred another? Aaaand... " A brief pause ensues, seeking to build tension. "What do you think of the way the people have remembered you since your time?"

    As the questions fly, Sieg begins to stir in Rebecca's arms. Seems like he's coming around...

    Warder: Ahahaha! We shall have a glorious battle Reavah! The bards shall sing of it for millenia! Movin' on though...ah would've prefered to be summoned as a Sabeah or Berserkah, but ah must admit my current Servant Class has been growin' on me, and when ah defeat the other Servants despite it's constraints ah will prove again that ah am the greatest of all heroes my only regret is that Gilgamesh ain't around, oh to battle against the King of Heroes would be truly grand!

    Rebecca: Is there really in difference between what you are now and Berserker, besides Mad Enhancement of course?

    Warder: Ah suppose for how the world remembers me, ah 'hink my legend speaks for itself, ah am still considered one of the greatest heroes of all time and ah will prove it again! For I! AM! -

    Rebecca: Wardy...

    Warder: Sorry Mastah...oh, the boy is wakin' up.

    Rebecca: Oh yes, come now sleaping beauty...or are you waiting for a kiss?

    Reaver: "Yes! Please give me the honor of a fine battle!"

    Vier: "Sounds like you've made his day, Warder. But... Sleeping beauty, eh? Heheheh. Hmmm. Perhaps that has a deeper meaning than you think. Perhaps someday, you should ask him about..."

    At just that moment, Sieg sits up again, blinking bleary eyes.

    Vier: "Hmm. Perhaps another time then. I can say that the boy can look quite good in a dress, though. Gyahahahahaaaaaaaa"

    Sieg's mouth gapes at the little familiar, his eyes bulge.


    He lunges for the bat-creature, but he's still a bit groggy, and the familiar easily evades, taking flight.

    Vier: "Perhaps another time then, my dear Miss Valentine. Reaver, would you be so kind as to run off those last few questions?"

    Reaver: "As you wish. The first is for you, Warder. What do you think about the way the world has changed since your lifetime? The remaining two are for both of you. What would you use the wish, or miracle, or whatever this prize is, for? And finally, do you have any parting words or thoughts you'd like to share?”

    Rebecca: <stares at Sieg and slowly grins>

    Warder: Mastah, the uh...questions?

    Rebecca: One second Wardy, I am visualising besides the first one was aimed towards you my dear.

    Warder: Hmm, ah guess ah'm disappointed in how the world has changed, the age of heroes is long dead, it is not a world for the likes of us Reavah...although ah must say that this 'technology' 'hing is very interestin'. To think, doors that open by themsel's and boxes that hold enitre worlds!

    Rebecca: My, aren't you just adorable Wardy getting so excited about such simple everday things, but I suppose it is a big change to what you are used to. As for what I would need a miracle for...I'd wish for the Throne of Heroes to be destroyed, so that the souls therein may find peace and freedom.

    Warder: Mastah...

    Rebecca: Don't look at me like that Wardy, you'll make me blush, it is nothing grand everyone deserves freedom after all, even a 'Monstah' like me can see that.

    Warder: ...ah 'ave no use for miracles, ah just crave the chance to prove myself the greatest of heroes but to raise my blade in your name will be an honour, Mastah...

    Rebecca: Wardy, you are making a big deal out of as for 'parting words' what could I possibly say? Hmhmhm, I know, how about I look forwards to playing with you all and I can't wait to see you all in pieces! HmhmhhahaHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

    Warder: Yes, our battles shall be glorious! Ah will show a might above all other! Ah shall crush! Kill! And destroy all who face me! Ah shall trample all challengers! Ah am the strongest! Ah am the mightest! The beasts of hell cowar in fear at my name! For I! AM! -

    Rebecca: Wardy honey, you're doing it again.

    Warder: Oh, sorry Mastah...

    Vier: "Ah, it sounds like you'll make things quite interestingahhhhh!"

    A hand closes around the winged familiar.

    Sieg: "Got you, you little gremlin! Haaah. D-don't pay too much attention to what t-this thing says. H-he's talking about things t-that are part of m-my family's standard training."

    Vier: "No, I'm talking about the way that spell can gaaaaaaaaaaaack!!!”

    There's a popping sound as Sieg squeezes down on the familiar in his hand.

    Vier: „My spine...”

    Reaver stands by, watching this somewhat impassively.

    Reaver: "Does this mean that Master's family teaches Kabuki?

    Sieg: "N-no Reaver, it's umm, it's s-something else..."

    Reaver:"Master, please enlighten me. It is my duty to protect your honor and that of your family. In order to do this, I must know more about you, and them.”

    Sieg: "Ummm, later."

    He takes a deep breath.

    Sieg: "I-I'd love to discuss this thing with the Throne of Heroes with you some time, Lady Valentine. Right now, though, ummm. I think it's the end of the interview. Sooo, until we meet again in OLYMPUS."

    Trapped within my fierce desire, resistance is futile. Screaming for your life, nowhere to hide,
    Tonight we cross the line, your innocence is mine!

    Loli Panteon.
    Rebecca is at the end of a large room in an extravagent tall backed chair and a oaken desk ahead of her, there is a rather tall window behind her revealing the full moon, on her right stands a dark haired maid wearing glasses with a glare to them that hides her eyes while on her left stands Warder in a black and red dress suits with sunglasses, the very picture of a body guard.

    Rebecca: Ah, now it is my turn to interview someone, hmhmhm and quite a pair I am left with as well. One who's beauty grants her control of others while the Master's very pressence causes a strange ache is my chest, hmhmhm such fun...

    Ebony: We stand ready to defend you at a moments notice Master.

    Warder: Yes Mastah, Enchantah shall not lay a finger on ya.

    Rebecca: Hmhmhm I am sure it will not come to that kitten, Wardy...

    Enchanter and Syouko suddenly appear in the chairs directly ahead of the desk.

    Syouko: That...always makes me queasy...

    Enchanter: <sigh> Can we just get this over with?

    Syouko: Ano, I appoligise for En-san in advance Valentine-san.

    Rebecca: Teleportaion? Such a useful little skill, and do not worry Pet it is just part of her charm, I should warn you though Red that your Divine Beauty will unlikely work against after all I sometimes find it hard to differentiate between sex, blood and violence.

    Warder: Hmph, tricks like that won't work on me either Demon.

    Ebony: I only have eyes for Master, I will not be swayed...

    Rebecca: Hmhmhm, how sweet of you kitten, now I suppose we should get started with the usually questions, 'what are your impressions of OLYMPUS so far my dears?

    Syouko: <glares at Ebony>

    Enchanter: Fufufu, you surround yourself with strong willed women I comend you for that for my thoughts on this, OLYMPUS, it is just another attempt at a doomed race to achieve the paradise they lost.

    Syouko: That...that's not nice En-san. I-I think that it is a lovely place, I have never seen anywhere quite like and I look forward to exploring more of it.

    Enchanter: <sigh> Perhaps it is the grandest they have come todate but still a pale comparrison to what they lost. You would do well not to get caught up in its false splendor, this is a war after all.

    Rebecca: Hmhmhm I suppose you would know wouldn't you Red, that being said why not let the child have her fun? After all, for most of us you only live once. Don't you agree kitten?

    Ebony: Yes Master, one should relax and enjoy the life that they have...

    Rebecca: Hmhmhm if you agree then why do you continue to serve me even when I have told you time and again that you are under no obligation to me after all.

    Ebony: Yes Master, but I enjoy ever day that I am able to spend in your service.

    Rebecca: Hmhmhm, such a sweetheart. Moving along, a question for you my pet, 'what brings you to OLYMPUS?'

    Enchanter: Fufufu, my identity is no more a secret that Warder's. Not that knowing who I am will help in the matter, my legend has become so warped that the knowledge is useless.

    Syouko: My reason for being here? Ojiisan sent me to investigate the 'Servants', he believes that they are the same or at least similar to the beings that my family have dealt with for generations.

    Warder: Hmph, even if they do know mah name ah'll still prove myself the greatest hero even against you Enchantah!

    Rebecca: Hmmm for some reason I feel like I should have known your answer Pet, a strange sense of nostalgia...

    Ebony: Perhaps Ms Asakura has some connections to your past Master...

    Rebecca: Hmhmhm, perhaps. I look forward to meeting you again to see where the story leads us my dear, ah but that is for another time for now let us focus on the interview. Ebony my dear, could you pass me the first letters?

    Ebony: Yes Master <produces a pair of envelopes and passes it to Rebecca>

    Rebecca: Hmhmhm one for Syouko and one for you as well Enchanter, Syouko's first I think 'How well do you get along with the other members of your faction? And how about the other Association branches?' and for Enchanter, although we may already know the answer to this one 'How is your relationship with your Master?'

    Syouko: You do remind me of someone from my past Valentine-san, but for some reason I cannot quite place you...although, my scars burn a little when you are near...and it makes me angry when others are around you...

    Enchanter: My relationship with Asakura? I suppose I find her far too soft, she is but a child and already she is being thrust into a war that she does not fully comprehend so I will just have to deal with the finer points myself...

    Syouko: I am sorry that I am not a more suited Master for you En-san, as for how I get along with other members of Taima...the Asakura line have protected our homeland for many generations and this had put us at odds with other members in the past, but in truth we tend to stick to ourselves, as of such we haven't had much contact with the other branches either...we did have an aliance with a family from Mages Association when I was younger...

    Rebecca: Hmhmhm, perhaps we were 'close' in a past life then. I suppose not everyone can be as lucky as Warder and I when it comes to Master-Servant compatability.

    Warmer: Haha! No, they can't can they Mastah!

    Ebony: <stares at Syouko> was extremely fortuitous that you summoned Warder Master...

    Rebecca: Ebony dear, try not and scare the poor girl...hmhmhm, another couple letters perhaps?

    Ebony: <produces more letters and hands them to Rebecca, still staring at Syouko>

    Rebecca: Ah, this one is for both of you 'How would you respond if a certain forger asked you to join his “harem”?' and the second is another for dear little Syouko 'Where does your incantation start up come from? I mean, the Mystic Powers and that thing, where do they originate from?' hmhmhm I must admit I am curious about that as well.

    Syouko: I dislike people like that...

    Enchanter: Hmph, a typical male. It's quite simple realy, I would make him one of my thralls and then dispose of him when the time came if not deal with the nusiance out right.

    Syouko: As for my incantations, it comes from my family's 'occupation', as Ojiisan said the best way to deal with spirits is with other spirits...although my time as a miko may have had some affect on my incantations as well.

    Rebecca: Hmhmhm, I must admit I like your style Red.

    Ebony: I must agree, men like that should be dealt with in the harshest way possible.

    Warder: As do ah...

    Rebecca: Anyways, on to the next questions <Ebony hands her another two letters> lets see here, ah this one is for you Red 'What do you think of a certain Invoker who deems herself perfect above all others?' and the second, oh I like this one it is for both of you 'Do you prefer male or female lovers?'

    Enchanter: Fufufu perfect she says? The very fact that she believes herself to be perfect is proof enough that she is not, the very audacity that she believes she is superior to I the original is a joke. As for lovers? I detest men, and even women have very little to offer me now <sigh> but if I must chose, then female.

    Syouko: <blushes> ...female...

    Rebecca: Hmhmhm I had a feeling you would say that pet and ohhhh <her eyes turn red> such a sweet scent, all that blood rushing to the surface.

    Ebony: Shall I prepare your meal Master?

    Rebecca: No, not at the moment kitten, it would be rude while we still have guests, onto the next questions then <Ebony passes her another two letters> lets see hmhmhm they are both for you Red first 'why do you hate men?' and second hmhmhm from that delightful little Assa-chan 'they're fake, aren't they?' hmhmhm, I believe I may be the only one who bust size she has yet to comment on.

    Enchanter: Fufufu what a silly question, I am the original, the ideal, everything about me is one hundred percent natural <sigh> as for my hatred towards men? I was wronged a long time ago, and from then on the men that I have had the misfortune of meeting have been just like the first...hmph, it as though every God has designed man to be an egotistical fool who believes himself better than a woman! They should know their place in this world the pathetic little worms!

    Syouko: En-san perhaps you should...calm down?

    Enchanter: appoligies, I lost my head for a second...

    Rebecca: That's quite alright Red, although perhaps you may find some men on a OLYMPUS that will surprise you they have been quite charming to me and I am a bloodthirsty monster.

    Ebony: No you aren't Master...

    Warder: Aye, ah have seen compasion in your heart Mastah...

    Rebecca: Perhaps, but beneath what humanity is left in me there will always be that monster that wishes to tear out the throats of those around me...enough of this depressing talk, onward with the questions <Ebony hands her another two letters> let's see the first is for you little Syouko 'What o you think of the people you’ve met so far?' and the next for Enchanter 'Are you an S or an M?' hmhmhmhHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Now I know who sent me that message, perhaps I shall pay her a visit later.

    Syouko: <blushes> I haven't met many so for but M-Mei-san seems nice and I...I really like Lacey-chan...

    Enchanter: The audacity! To think that I would partake in such things, I will lay beneath no one man or think that my legend has become so warped that they would insinuate such things...

    Rebecca: Hmmmm, for some reason that bothers me pet...I shall have to speak with this...Lacey. As for you Enchanter, hmhmhm, does that mean that you have never been touched? From what I have read you spawned many children was it all just conjecture brought about by the masses that followed?

    Warder: Ah'm curious to see just how different you are to your legend, Demon.

    Rebecca: We shall just have to wait untill it is all revealed then won't we, Ebony the last letter please.

    Ebony: Yes Master <she hands over the final letter>

    Rebecca: Let us see, oh this one is for Syouko from dear Matty 'Are you going to let your Servant do whatever she wants just like that?'

    Enchanter: You will see soon enough, Warder, although if the vampire doesn't learn her place I fear she will not live to see the Grail in my hands...

    Syouko: I-I dislike giving orders to En-san, and I know that I do not have the experience needed to get me through the war but...I would prefer it if she weren't so...harsh.

    Enchanter: <sigh> Asakura, I am only harsh because you are too soft, I will do as I am told but do not expect me to be as leniant with our enemies. If they are the enemy you eliminate them, if they are not...control them.

    Rebecca raises her hand to prevent Ebony and Warder from retaliating.

    Rebecca: I look forward to when we meet on the battle field, for the final question for both of you, do you have any 'parting' thoughts?

    Syouko:, not really...

    Enchanter: Fufufu, beware the mirrors...

    Rebecca: Ohhhh very criptic, well it would appear that we are out of time and this interview is over hmhmhm until we meet again little Hime, hmhmhmhhahahAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

    4: ...Why am I here again?

    Trickster: This time you're the interviewer. Let's do this. Please?

    4: *sigh* Okay, fine, I'll do it.

    Trickster: In that case, the interview with Mei and Betrayer is starting soon, in around 35 minutes, so please send your questions.

    4: okay everybody, it's time, now let's give a welcome for our guests, Mei and Betrayer

    Trickster: Can't you do a better introduction than that?

    4: shut up

    Betrayer: Greetings everyone. It is an honor to be here.

    Mei: ...zzzzzzzzzzzz

    Betrayer: One moment please. *Reaches over and taps a command on Red Hare phone*


    Mei: AIYAAAAH?!!

    Betrayer: Master, it is bad policy to fall asleep in front of strangers.

    Mei: Oh. *blinks* Sorry about that. I'm just *sigh* not a morning person.

    Betrayer: I apologize for that, Miss 4 and Trickster. Please go on.

    4: What did you just do? Did you just zap your master? I didn't even know the phones had such a function.

    Trickster: Hmm...

    4 (glares at Trickster and mouths the words 'don't you dare'): Anyway, let's start off with a classic. What do the two of you think of OLYMPUS?

    Mei: To be honest, it felt like I was stepping into a whole new world when I got off that plane. OLYMPUS sure gives off the impression that just about anything is possible. Although I am a little worried about how they're gonna keep the peace between all the factions.

    Betrayer: Indeed, it is an impressive sight. I anticipate a whole plethora of possible adventures in this place. Perhaps I'll run into some of my old friends here.

    Trickster: I wouldn't be surprised if I bumped into some old acquaintances of my own. There are quite a number of heroes here.

    4: Anyway, (takes a random letter), let's see. Okay, here we go, for both of you.
    Tell us, what are your hobbies/favourite things about OLYMPUS?

    Mei: Hobbies? Well, there were quite a few when I was traveling the world, but the two biggest ones would be traveling and training. Sometimes the two mix. You can really get an intimate feel for a city once you start climbing and leaping through its nooks and crannies. I also enjoy the occasional video game and surf the 'net sometimes, but I try to limit those activities since they're highly addicting.

    Betrayer: In my life, I enjoyed swimming, sailing, training, and journeying with my friends. I hear the discus garnered a few new games these days, so I'd like to try them out. And this "internet" sounds very intriguing as well.

    Mei: As for OLYMPUS, I haven't seen enough of it yet to make a definitive decision, but I look forward to the new school semester.

    Betrayer: The architecture and level of technology are certainly interesting. Though I 'd really prefer to meet the other heroes who have been summoned here.

    4: Training? As in fighting? Perhaps you like to test yourself against me some time?

    Trickster: Master, you really need to learn to hold back. The purpose of training isn't to actually kill your partner. I mean, I put up with it, but if you decide to spar with someone else, please don't kill them.

    4: A-anyway, next letter. Here's another almost classic question.
    What do you wish for? To what lengths will you go to obtain that wish? Will you kill, will you murder? Are you willing to kill your opposition? What lines will you not cross?

    Mei: *cracks a lazy grin* Actually, my training is only worthwhile if I don't hold back either. But where was I? Oh, my wish? I originally came here to find a purpose for my life. Given what happened all those years ago...well, I thought my role was to create a brighter future for my family, but I...I failed. So now I must find another calling, a Raison d'źtre as the French would put it. It's not really a wish in itself, so I wouldn't waste the Grail on it, if the Grail is actually working at all without any of the rumored "defects" of the past. I guess I'm just here to find a cause worth devoting myself to, something that will give me meaning. As for how far I'd go, I will not involve the innocent. Nor will I murder without reason. And if I must kill, that reason must be serious. It all depends on who attacks me.

    Betrayer: My wish is simple: redemption for what I did, and the chance to journey in the company of heroes once more. But I do not deserve the miracle of the Grail. This wish is something I must achieve with my own hands. As for the subject of killing, Servants are fair game. We've all lived and died knowing the consequences of our actions, and I'd be hard pressed to find a hero who didn't put his life on the line for his cause. As for Masters, I'll leave that up to my Master's discretion unless it's an emergency.

    4: See? Going all out is normal!

    Trickster: Like I said, there's a difference between going all out and trying to kill someone!

    4: Meh. Anyway, good luck. Now onto the next question (selects another envelope) Let's see...

    -To Mei: How do you feel about being recommended to ARES? Did it come as a surprise?
    -To Betrayer: Are you in OLYMPUS for redemption? Have you put your past behind you?
    Well, I guess we've already received a bit of an answer for the second question.

    Mei: Yeah, I was quite surprised at the recommendation. I thought that was something reserved for class representatives or people with long-standing and respected careers here. This seems like a good opportunity, but I still feel that I should consult my family.

    Betrayer: What I did was unforgivable and it still haunts me to this day. The very least I can do is vow to never again betray the bonds that I forge.

    Trickster: Oh? A Betrayer that has vowed to never betray again? Now that's interesting. Anyway, here's the next question. (pulls out a letter)
    'Your first day at class was quite an interesting one to say the least. But still, it seems like you've alienated several people, like Luthor. Not only that, but it seems that a certain little Dead Apostle who is also in that class may possess some hostility towards your current little group, with her threat. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure as they say, so will you be taking any 'actions' to eliminate or otherwise neutralize these 'potential obstacles'?

    4: Hey, wait just a second here! There wasn't a single part of that letter that I liked! 'Eliminate'? 'Neutralize'? 'Obstacles'? And to put me on the same level as Luthor!? And I'm certainly not 'little'! I demand to know who sent that letter!

    Trickster: We can discuss that afterwards, master

    Mei: I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't at least a bit on edge after what you said/did, 4. But I need to get my affairs in order before I do anything else. Maybe enroll in ARES or something. Whether or not the situation escalates is up to you. I'd like for us to be friends though.

    Betrayer: I'll admit that I'd like to see how Trickster handles himself in combat. He seems like he'd be an impressive tactician.

    (4 and Trickster aren't really paying attention. 4 is attacking Trickster and trying to get the letter so she can see the sender, but Trickster is avoiding her attacks)

    Trickster: Ah, sorry, kind of busy at the moment. (grabs a letter as he dodges another attack) Okay, here we go

    -To both: Do you think you will be able to get along well with each other?

    4: I'll kill you first, and then the sender, and then everybody else!

    Trickster: Is this really something to use lethal force over!? Are you seriously trying to kill me!? Master!?

    4: Shut up and die already!

    Mei: *sigh* Do I have to break up another fight? *hand starts glowing with strange purplish light*

    Betrayer: I don't think that's wise, Master. Although that particular spell would make things rather amusing.

    Mei: Whatever, I'm sure Trickster can handle himself just fine. *purple light dissipates*

    Betrayer: Well, as for the question, our relationship has certainly been "rocky" at the start. And by "rocky," I mean she exploded in my face and tried to pummel me to death once I told her of my crime.

    Mei: Any sane woman would! What you did was unforgivable!

    Betrayer: *Ahem* But things turned better when I gave her my word that I would never again repeat the crimes of my life, and that I would dedicate myself to redemption.

    Mei: Well, they say you really get to know someone once you fight him. And all my fists felt from him were sorrow and regret. I'm willing to give him a second chance since he's so dead serious on turning over a new leaf. He also swore absolute loyalty to me, and on more than one occasion he urged me to use a Command Spell to kill him if I ever felt that he strayed from his path. And it was a bit embarrassing when he was grovelling at my feet, begging for forgiveness. Only time will tell how it turns out.

    Betrayer: I swear on my soul that I will not let you down, Master.

    Mei: I know...I shouldn't have been so harsh on you. I'm certainly no saint in comparison.

    Trickster (dodging another blow): Master, please! At least let us finish this interview first!

    4 (appearing to calm down): Very well then. Okay, the next letter.

    'You've been slacking off. To be precise, you have been playing video games for the last three hours. Your younger brother, Ben, has just contacted you, saying that he'll arrive at the China Dormitories in less than ten minutes. A surprise visit, indeed. Without a doubt, you can't let him see all those CDs and video game consoles. You must do something, at once! Do you... Hide them in your closet, hoping he won't dare to look there...? Blame your roommate, saying it's she the one who owns all those videogames...? Or do you throw everything out the window, as a desperate measure to avoid a lecture from Ben...?'
    hmm... If this Ben is a problem, why isn't there an option to simply kill him.

    Trickster: That's because people don't normally kill their younger brothers over something so triv-
    (Trickster sidesteps, causing 4 who had tried to inconspicuously sneak behind him before making a lunge at the guilty letter to fly past him and faceplant onto the floor at high speed. Trickster continues like nothing happened) -ial.

    4: oww...

    (Trickster looks over at 4 and sighs)

    Mei: Oh, he's quite aware of what I do and I think he's partially given up on trying to change my ways, at least in this aspect. I'll just simply turn off the console, make sure the room looks respectable when he arrives, and greet him with open arms. There's nothing to hide. He can always somehow tell exactly how long I've been playing even without having me put under surveillance. There's just no lying when it comes to Ben. You know how siblings can be. He always sees through me no matter how convincing the lie is. Which is why I never play mahjong with that scheming jerk. The lectures aren't all that bad, and I always make sure to avoid spending too much time on leisure or vice. I mean, we've been in situations like this for over a decade now. He knows I can handle myself and get the job done right, though that doesn't stop him from worrying.

    Betrayer: Your brother is a commendable man, Master. To hold the family together even after that incident, maintain power, and still have time to check in on you, he is quite impressive. It is only natural for him to be concerned over the last surviving member of his immediate family.

    Mei: I know. He has to be since he's all I have left to depend on.

    Betrayer: By the way, are you alright, Miss 4?

    Mei: Yeah, that last stunt looked like it hurt. You want me to patch you up?

    Trickster: Don't worry, I'm sure she's perfectly fine. 4: No I'm not Yes indeed, it'll take more than a small fall like that to hurt my master.

    4: oh god, the pain, it hurts so much, oww...

    Trickster: Anyway, I'm glad your brother seems to be such a swell guy and your relationship is so good. It is a good thing to have social relationships with other people, don't you agree? Not only that, but I think it's great that Ben is such a levelheaded guy who doesn't overreact to trivial things

    4: Go ahead, kick a person while they're down.

    Trickster: If you think it'll help. I hear and obey (steps on 4 a bit) Anyway, next question.

    Betrayer, what kind of enemy do you deem as 'most interesting'?

    Mei, does your mobile phone hold the ability to summon Lu Bu's horse?

    (steps on 4 a bit more)

    4: uguu ;_;

    Betrayer: Hmmm, there are two kinds. The first are the skilled, straightforward types who jump at the chance of honorable single combat, much like Achilles. The second are the shrewd, cunning types who fight with guile, wit, and superior tactics, like Odysseus.

    Mei: Awwww, 4, do you need a hu-

    Betrayer: *Ahem* I think it would be for the best to keep to our personal space for this interview.

    Mei: Ohhhh, alright. I'm sorry, 4. 'Hope you get better.

    Betrayer: *nudge*

    Mei: Oh right! The question. I wish my phone had such an awesome feature. Though I think I can find a way to project the real deal on a holo display. That poor horse didn't deserve to go out the way he did. Red Hare here is actually an image of the family pet back home. That adorable, oversized bunny has been with us for quite some time...and has punched out his fair share of people who 'surprised' him.

    Trickster: Well, I hope you the best of luck with your opponents. Who knows, considering where we are, you might even meet Achilles or Odysseus in person! I know I'd certainly like the chance to match both wits against Odysseus, if he also happened to get summoned into the Trickster class like me, but well, you know how it is, it's all up to fate or destiny or whatever. Also good luck with that holo display Mei. Anyway, here's the next question or rather, questions. For Mei:
    '... Holy shit! Are they real...? Tell us What's your tolerance to alcohol, please.'
    And for Betrayer:
    'How many Betrayers could Betrayer betray if Betrayer could betray Betrayers?'

    4: that...must be...the pervert...can you please... stop...stepping on me...already?

    Mei: Are what re-.... *Face flushes deep red* O-of c-course they are!!!

    Betrayer: Is that the Artificer who everyone keeps talking about?

    Mei: M-most likely. A-and my alcohol tolerance depends on how much prana is flowing in me. I'd say above average, normally. If I'm actually trying to stay on my feet, I can last a while, though that usually ends up with me waking up in a large pile of debris where the bar used to be with a whole bunch of people lying around who had the crap beaten out of them.

    Betrayer: I wonder why...

    Mei: *nudge*

    Betrayer: As for the second question. NONE. See above for why.

    Trickster: Speaking of the pervert, there's actually another question here that refers to him.

    If you ever run into Artificer and he wants to get you to the harem, will you shoot his proposal down?

    4 (still lying face down on the floor): What harem? That pervert really needs a reality check one of these days.

    Mei: Of course I'd refuse. What kind of crazy person sleeps with a complete and total stranger who gives off creepy perverted vibes?

    Betrayer: Back in my day, a man didn't need to ask. If he was worthy, women would come to him in droves. In fact, this one ti-

    Mei: *violent nudge*

    4 (still on the floor): Can you pass me some of the letters?

    Trickster: Why don't you just get up?

    4: ...hurts

    (Trickster takes several letters and dumps them near 4)

    4: Okay, let's see. Here's some for Mei.
    Do we expect Mana Mizuki to sing each time you'll do something really badass?
    Will you have a chance to meet some of the Japanese students on OLYMPUS?

    Mei: Perhaps. That depends on what happens, though it'd be awkward to fight while hearing myself sing. And I've already met a few Japanese students. Tsukino-senpai and Syouko to name a couple. They seem like good people so far. If only the Order had better relations with Taima. Maybe I should work on that while I'm here. We'll just have to wait and see what happens in the future.

    4: hmm... we'll see

    4: Oh, here's a good one.
    What was your biggest dream when you were a little girl?

    Mei: To be a great martial artist like Uncle Wu and travel the world, helping the weak and needy. Sorta like a hero, I guess. That was when brother Yi was the chosen heir. If only things didn't turn out like they did...

    Betrayer: There was no helping it, Master. Sometimes the Fates can be especially cruel. I know this all too well.

    4 (opens another letter): Oh?

    Trickster: These questions could look troublesome. Well, just get them all out of the way now. And please stand up already Master.

    4: Well, I guess it's because people were expecting Betrayer to be a, well, betrayer. Anyway, here we go. Mei:
    Do you have a final say should Betrayer decide to backstab someone even if that isn't your wish or if the person in question still has some use?

    And for Betrayer:
    Is it particularly easy to honor your Class name if you backstab anyone allied with Mei you deem expendable?
    How far are you willing to go if you plan to betray someone who's not trustworthy at all? What about possible villians?

    Betrayer: As I've stated before, I will not betray those that I have sworn allegiance to unless it is an extreme situation. For example, I confirm that an ally has turned back on his word and betrayed my trust. Can't betray someone who intends to kill you, right? There is also the situation with Lady Froste's alliance. Both sides agreed that hostilities may arise upon confirmation of a genuine Holy Grail.

    Mei: And I think he'd need a Command Spell to actually betray an honorable ally without justification. But still, Betrayer told me time and again to use one to kill him if he ever strayed from his path. I hope it doesn't come to that.

    Betrayer: As for the second question, it all depends on the situation. If I am forced to choose between my Master and an ally, I must side with my Master. But I will not do any backstabbing without justifiable cause. For obvious villains or untrustworthy types, I go by this maxim: "You have to trust someone to betrayed."

    4: Let's see, here's another hypothetical situation type question for Mei.
    hypothetically, you have just defeated an enemy master, but you have drained away all your prana doing so, when you are attacked by another master, betrayer is occupied with his servant. what methods would you take to defeat him or otherwise ensure your own safety?

    Mei: I still have a few tricks up my sleeve, and I'm not completely helpless without prana, but it's not a situation I plan to get into. Usually when I'm low on prana, I'm in a state that makes me quite dangerous for other Masters.

    Betrayer: If my Master's in a disadvantageous position, then I can easily initiate a tactical withdrawal and leave my opponent with enough scars to discourage pursuit. As a team, we are quite skilled at surviving battles.

    4: I'm glad you're so confident. Let's hope that confidence isn't misplaced.

    Trickster: So said the girl lying face down on the floor after tripping.

    4: ...shut up. Anyway, let's see, next question

    "What do you think of the people you've met so far in OLYMPUS? Anyone you are particularly interested in, like, or dislike?"
    ...I probably haven't made the best impression, have I?

    Trickster: You could at least get up.

    Mei: Most of the people I met so far were pretty interesting in their own way. I'd like to get to know Lacey & Syouko better. Tsukino-senpai & Sunoko Kain also have their own intriguing aspects. Pao-Pao seems like a fun person to hang out with, though I somehow get the feeling that she's the type to pull a bunch of explosive pranks. I don't exactly hate Luthor, but he certainly isn't winning a lot of points in my book. Afterall, he isn't the first pompous Lord I've met in my life. That guy's a loose cannon with little regard for collateral damage.

    4: I wasn't mentioned ;_;

    Trickster: Well it serves you right.

    4: Anyway, we're down to our last question, and here we go (4 opens the envelope and then looks puzzled as there's a letter and another sealed envelope inside)
    Siu Hong Mei, choose. If the time comes, will you grasp it or shall you reject it?

    (4 hands Mei the sealed envelope)

    Trickster: This is certainly interesting

    4: I wonder what's inside?

    Mei: That's a name I no longer deserve. But...who sent this? Grasp what? My destiny? I don't think you can fit a destiny in a letter. I guess I'll grasp it if I'm sure it's not something else.

    Betrayer: Surely it's a trap. We shou-

    Mei: Hand me your sword, and get ready. (Though it's been a while since I practiced my sword forms)

    Betrayer: Here you are Master. *Prepares something unseen under an arm-cape*

    Mei: Hyah! *Throws letter in the air and cuts letter open from the top with the very edge of the sword*

    4: I wasn't expecting that

    Trickster: Hmm, what's that? (grabs a sheet of paper that had been inside the letter and had fallen out after Mei cut it. There are several Chinese characters written on it) Let' s see..., 'Mandate of Heaven'?

    (Trickster cautiously hands the sheet over to Mei)

    Trickster: I think this was for you?

    Betrayer: Was that really necessary, Master? *takes sword back*

    Mei: I-I thought it was a letter bomb...

    Betrayer: Why would you think it was a bomb?

    Mei: We sometimes get those in the family mail. Don't ask why. *Takes letter* But this letter...ugh, it's in pinyin, I much prefer jyutping. But "Mandate of Heaven"? China doesn't really have an emperor anymore, not in any significant capacity at least. Does it mean I should be an empress or something?

    4: Perhaps the person's asking if you want to take over the China dorms? Maybe a rebellion?

    Trickster: Who knows?

    4: Well, that's it, folks. Now Trickster, about that letter...

    Trickster: Oh, fine (Trickster hands out the previous letter. 4 snatches it out of his hands and begins reading it)

    4: ...hey Trickster?

    Trickster: Yeah?

    4: There's no signature. It doesn't say who it's from.

    Trickster: That's obvious, right? Such a proactive letter, considering the interviewer, there's noway the author would write their name.

    4 (speaking very slowly): Then...why...didn' ...letter...?

    Trickster: Why? Oh that's easy.

    4: ...

    Trickster: I just wanted to mess with you


    Trickster: Well, let's get going, bye everybody.
    Trapped within my fierce desire, resistance is futile. Screaming for your life, nowhere to hide,
    Tonight we cross the line, your innocence is mine!
