    Mainly Fate strange Fake, but I also enjoy other works like LN or anime when they are released or translated which renews my interest.

    I've been thinking about this more than usual lately. I think the thematic side of the stories has always been a big thing for me, the idea of how each work interlaces with these other thematic meanings and that thematic continuity is something I think's important. The way You put it a few pages back describes my feelings on that pretty well.

    With that said, I think that's what keeps me reading the things Type-Moon puts out, which is kind of different than why I've stayed engaged with the setting as much as I have over the past-odd decade.

    I think the reason I've stayed engaged with the setting is just because it's fun to write in. Part of that's because of how Type-Moon's magic system is based in anthropology, part of it's because of the aforementioned thematic nature of the setting, etc etc, but I think if I just wanna simplify it then that's why. Like, nowadays when a chapter of GO I especially like comes out, or a new project comes out and I'm excited to experience it, that's good, but I think that feeling alone would just make me keep up with it the way I do for most things I have a passing interest in.

    Sometimes a little offhand blurb in a new chapter of GO, or a sidenote in a VN from 16+ years ago that I rediscover when I'm grabbing quotes to explain stuff to a friend, or a random discussion with friends about X news headline or Y stupid joke sparks some thoughts and gets me putting pen to paper. How could you turn that into a magus? What would their story look like? What are their themes and possible arcs? How would they play off X or Y aspect of the setting? I'll talk about that with friends and bounce ideas off them, I'll design concepts for a roleplay based off the idea, I'll write up character notes, and so on. It's just fun for me. If that wasn't the case, I don't think I'd be nearly as involved in it after all this time.

    I don't know why. I thought it was because I was interested in it after liking what I watched or read, but I noticed I've been more frustrated and annoyed, then I was when I first came here. Maybe the things that I watched and read gave me bad expectations about everything as a whole because it seems like when something new shows up or happens, people are happy and well, I'm not.

    Shirou Emiya's dream is why I keep coming back to Fate, in the end.

    I've been on and off with TM ever since FGO's advent...

    I really like the OG FSN cast so I eat up any content with them (like the Emiya Gohan spinoff)

    FGO is something I get excited about sometimes but ultimately don't care much for except for a few select servants and lore bits. I've stopped playing since 2018, sometimes I have a desire to come back.

    Tsukihime Remake is something I'm definitely excited for but somehow it still seems far away. Hopefully when it comes around, Tsuki can become a series that is on the level of Fate for TM (or at least close to).

    A combination of Sunken Costs Fallacy, most other fandoms and lores being worse nowadays, and needing things to write about in a regular basis so I don't go completely mad.

    Also, Osakabehime, I guess.

    My favorite waifu's Saber and Nero. They make my life so much happier; they're such great and cheerful characters!
