    Not really. I can do that for jokey-stuff, but the banter in this chapter is about as funny as this is going to get.

    Hm. Knight in Red. Sounds like Tohsaka might resummon Archer. And You Are My King sounds like Waver will grab Rider again.

    Besides the fact that I'm with Bridgeburner about prefering post-UBW (I can't remember any good post-UBW story besides "When Left" finished, right now, and that one was centered on the side characters), I'm really excited about this story. I can't say little more about your style that I hadn't said already thousand times, so I'll go with just "I'm following it and I already want the next chapter"

    Personally, I can think of another character that might be a Knight in Red. Although, to be fair, is the same character.

    Fate/stay night: The Reunion Special is a go. Am eagerly awaiting any potential twists and turns that this may have in store.
    McJon01: We all know that the real reason Archer would lose to Rider is because the events of his own Holy Grail War left him with a particular weakness toward "older sister" types.
    My Fanfics. Read 'em. Or not.

So it's not like he can get summoned and ask "So... about them ideals... what you think? Still being stupid?"
    I thought EMIYA's true dream was still to save people and make them happy. Why wouldn't he show up if Rin tried to summon him?

    It already can't be post UBW due to Caliburn being referenced already.

    I could buy Continuation of the Dream being what happens when Saber gives up on the Grail in UBW True. Just, instead of the dream being "that time when I fell in love and found peace" it was "that time I watched two people I admire act really cute together."

    As I said, besides When Left, I can't remember any good post-UBW story finished. And some of them were one or two chapters away from the end.

    And yes, I read it. It was a funny story. Not brilliant, but way above average, for FF.net standars.

    Eh, maybe, maybe not. If it ends with an earned happy end, I'm happy too. And with that I mean that the main characters earn it after much suffering and all that. But! You are the writer, so write what you feel it's better.

    Maybe I should watch that. Considering it already made me smile from just reading your conversation, it should be way more amusing to actually see that happening.

    I'm not exactly into grim dark stuff, but I like the sound of that. I kind of dislike when some authors throw in some random lighthearted parts as breather chapters, it throws off the mood. Not saying you would do that in the first place, but it's good to know that it will be pretty dark as the title indicates.

    I actually never really read any Sixth War stories as they failed to grab my interest be it simply through their summary or during the first few chapters, but I'm really looking forward to this.

    Not sure what I would get, but I'd be interested nonetheless.

    Pretty sure that Arashi means that, given he's (IIRC) said that he's not a big supporter of the pairing, people who are fans of Post UBW fics would be disappointed by the lack of RinXShirou

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

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

    It isn't just Archer saying it, but being confronted with the Shirou-Archer dichotomy in general. UBW good implies she understands on some level, not just because Archer told her "give it up," but because she knows there's something wrong with the idea overall and that Shirou has the answer with him somewhere. I always took the fact that she goes without a fight at the end of True as being her understanding that literally, it isn't her fight.

    ^ Yeah, that.

    I never said I wasn't a supporter of the pairing. It has more to do with what I view the end result of the UBW route to be, not any issue with the romance. If anything I've so far tended toward Rin and Shirou as a couple when it comes to what I've written--could work out in Escaping, happened previously in Far Side and Shared Resonance, two pwps, UST still hinted at in What I See...

    Yeah, her destroying the Grail willfully counts as her giving up the contract.

    BTW Arashi, since this is post Fate-Route, does that mean Saber is chillin' in Avalon? Or are you gonna bend Canon there to have her included in the story?

    Sorry, poor wording on my part. I suppose I could have said:

    "Arashi is one of the group that feels that the relationship won't really last, due to it being primarily Teenagers+Hormones+Near-Death Experience"

    But that's a bit of a Mouthful.

    Spoiler:
    I wouldn't say I'm bending canon. She's not in Avalon yet.

    It's also how I'm nerfing her.


    ^ Nah, I don't actually think that. They have plenty of things to build off of as a relationship. The talk about near death experiences and stuff I have pointed out, but as a general food-for-thought point, not necessarily because I think that's a good benchmark or anything.

    When it comes to their relationship, I just always felt like in the end, it would still amount to Shirou taking off for god-knows-where to pursue his dream and that Rin would support him where she could, but she also has a life of her own.

    Not that this is the point that I would emphasize in a post-UBW story. I'll keep what I have in mind on the off chance I decide to go somewhere with it. Although I've kind of thrown all of my other good ideas into this story atm.

    I'm glad to see this kind of cast. To see what development you have in mind for Fate Shirou.

    Is there some particular themes you want present through this? That this will be 50/50 the 6th and Magus Association politicking?

    I don't particularly consider this a "6th" since at this point the cat is out of the bag that the system is broken. If you expect a bunch of Servant fights, you're probably going to be disappointed. Anyway, it's mostly about giving myself a final conclusion to some character arcs. The politicking is mostly in the setup and in establishing antagonists to what I want Waver and them to go through. Each of what'll end up being the team of protags will have a sort of rival antagonist central to their story.
