I walk over to Rin as everyone else leaves. "Want some help?""I don't think you could, I never taught you about wards." She hesitates, and sighs "Sorry."".... For not teaching me about wards?""No, for being upset. I just.... I don't like people keeping secrets like that. I haven't said some things, but mostly it's stuff that doesn't matter." She looks at me. "It's not that I don't trust you.... you've just never given me a reason to consider doubting you until now.""Sorry. If I knew it was that big a deal to you, I would've said something." I sigh. "Honestly though, I'm not sure what I should and shouldn't talk about. There's something that means nothing to me, but might be a vital clue to you. Or maybe I know something or can do something that could help, but I didn't want to talk about it and reveal my trump card." I shrug. "It's hard for me to know where the line's drawn. I didn't mean to upset you."".... It's fine." She says after a moment. "When you say it like that, I've been less forthcoming than you. You've just been so honest and open that the one actual secret or lie, no matter how small, was jarring.""Sorry.""No, I just overreacted a little bit." She bites her lip. "You want to learn about wards real quick? I could teach you some of the basics while I work.""Sure. I can catch up on my sleep when I'm dead." She blinks, and then shakes her head with a smile as we begin.[DC15 Magecraft]

"Alright, so how did you do that?""I tied it into the bounded field.""Bounded field?""Yeah, the one around the house.""Oh right, of course.... How?""I've had a chance to study the structure of the field. The way it's set up is weak to prevent any sort of accidental harm to people, but I can easily use it as the foundation for greater magecraft."".... How?"".... You know how you can add more levels to an already existing building? You just build around what's already there?""... Kinda.""I'm doing that."".... So what, I have a magic basement now?""What? No, that's not what I meant. It's a magic net, I'm just making a wider one around what's already there.""Like fishing?""A fishing net?" She looks at me. "No, it would be more like a bug-net keeping stuff out. Or like a tripwire letting us know if somebody did something.""So we're trying to trip up magical bugs? Like if someone taps the phone with some form of witchcraft?"Tosaka stares blankly at me for several seconds. "... I guess that would be like scrying... so yes?""Alright, so how does that work?""It's like a bubble. Someone hits it and it pops. And then I know it was popped.""And it won't happen on accident?""Hopefully not, since false alarms are a bad thing on a safety net.""So wait, is it a net, a tripwire, or a bubble?"We spend another few minutes completely failing to convey any practical knowledge to me, and we settle on 'it works because shutup' until we have time to schedule a followup lesson.[ ] Back to bed.[ ] Other (?)

WAIT GODS NO.SHIROU AND AVENGER SWITCH PLACES WHEN THEY SLEEP.
Jokes an all aside, are we actually telling AC-Guy to make a move?
>>24370585Nobody ever noticed it when they came in to wake us up.
>>24370585No they don't.People have seen us asleep before, Avenger was just screwing with Merlin's scrying in some way.
>>24370585No, something was just mucking up Merlin's scrying.Probably the fact that, from a magical standpoint, we're the same person. If Avenger was actively doing anything to fuck with Merlin's spells he would surely notice, so it has to be something incidental like that.
>>24370585I was just about to say that too.>>24370616>>24370624Would you like to risk the chance of Avenger swapping places in the night and killing/NTRing her?Imagine how many Rin points we would lose if the latter happened and Rin learns that Merlin more or less told us this a few god damn hours beforehand.
>>24370607>I don't know, are you? It seems weird as hell and kinda sudden to me.>I mean, if there's a consensus or something, I'm not really in a position to argue....
>>24370676Except that we already have in game proof that we don't switch, seeing as all of our talks with merlin have ended with someone coming in and waking up Shirou in his bed, in his house.
>Wait, I think the normal 'go to bed' option is winning slightly, unless someone changed their vote. I think I'll go with that just to keep us moving along.>Note: I'm not trying to cock-block you or something, I just want to keep it moving for now.
>>24370005Rin, I need you in my room, I just had a dream about a crazy wizard - I've had it a few times before - and he seemed to get me and avenger or shinji confused, I need you to be in my room while I sleep to make sure nothing strange is going on.
>>24370671To be fair, this is the same person that taught magic to someone who hated him just because he wanted to fuck them and got sealed away because of it.Next time we talk to Merlin we have to convince him to thoroughly doublecheck literally everything. I'm not sure how much of this was Avenger fucking with Merlin's scrying, and how much was simple arrogance on Merlin's part.>>24370713Do we? Or did Avenger just hear people coming in and swap back? To know for sure, we'd have to have someone observing us while we're unaware of their presence rather than barging into our room with the subtlety of a rhino. They DID say that we were making wierd noises, after all...
>>24370763>we'd have to have someone observing us while we're unaware of their presenceCould we go buy a video camera or something and set it up to watch ourselves?
>>24370756This... THIS MAKES SENSEWE HAVE A REASON TO GET HER IN OUR ROOM THAT ISN'T COMPLETELY NONSENSICAL.
>>24370754we're kiddingha ha ah ah hac'mon boss if we did half the shit we joked about Shirou be dead
>>24370756This. With an awkward pause between "I need you in my room," and the explanation.
>>24370756I like this. We said we were going to come clean with her about the Merlin business at the end of the last thread.
>>24370123 here>>24370756DO IT
>>24370756Infact, bring rider and saber too - that way if what I think is going on is actually going on, we can really drop a surprise on them... I'd involve sakura too, but she doesn't seem to be too good at magic right now.
>>24370763Actually, I had a thought.Merlin said he couldn't tell us stuff directly, because reasons.It's entirely possible he knows the correct answer and is now stringing us along by playing stupid because he knows the answers from our non Merlin assisted investigations.So all he can do is play stupid at the right topics to make us prove him wrong somehow.
Rolled 12>>24370856yes, let's do this
well boss, it looks like rins going to be watching us.
>>24370756Do we really want to tell Avenger about Merlin cooperating with us? Because Avenger seems to spy on us when we're awake.
>>24370878AC-Guy, lets just go to sleep.
>>24370857Oh god.No wonder Saber can't stand him.
>>24370756...I'm hesitating on this, because if we're doing this FOR SCIENCE and not to get laid, I'd rather we have Saber or Rider watch, or have them nearby just in case it really is Avenger and shit hits the fan.Second, I'm not sure if we should mention Merlin. Merlin specifically said he had to contact us through our dreams so Avenger couldn't eavesdrop, and won't learn about Merlin at all. If we drop that Merlin's been talking to us in our dreams, then that clues Avenger in and we have no idea what how bad that could go.Fuck, he could hijack Merlin's dream, masquerade as Merlin and give us horrible, horrible ideas that will get us killed. Not that we need the help.
I go back to bed, and I'm woke up by Rider bright and early. "Eh?""Shirou. Two things: Firstly, I found out Sakura's been lieing to you. She's not up just because she's used to being up early, she's been having nightmares. Secondly, you've been bitching about not getting to cook.

"Well, thanks, I c- Nightmares?" I say, mind finally catching up with what she's told me."Yeah. I only got glimpses of it, but it went pretty straightforward. She's stuck in her room, and she sees a pair of knights in shining armor coming to save her. The first one she sees shakes hands with Zouken, and then leaves and slowly starts rusting away as he seems to go and complete some kind of task for him. The other one goes running forward, but then his armor's made of tinfoil and he gets really badly savaged by some sort of shadowy monster thing coming towards her.""Well.... that's disturbing.""Yeah. She woke up when she saw the rusted knight collapse in the distance and then you fall bleeding to death in front of her wearing shredded tinfoil and cardboard telling her that you cleared the way.""Yeah, alright. I can get the gist of it. Kinda." I scratch my head. "Not sure how I'm supposed to talk to her about her knightmares, since it would require mind-reading for me to talk to her about them.""I was going to talk to her about it already, I just wanted to give you a heads up. She's been doing everything she can to hide this stuff from you.""She said she sees herself as a burden to us right now." I sigh, shaking my head. "I'm pretty sure she just wants us to keep from worrying more."Rider facepalms. "Sometimes that girl...." She shakes her head. "I swear, Rin's the only one here who actually is open and honest about what she wants.""Well, Maybe I can talk to her?""I'll talk to her, see if I can get her to open up to either you or her sister."

"Alright, what's that about the honesty?" I ask, looking at her. "Because I think you accused both yourself and Saber of being dishonest.""Also you." She responds. "I'm not sure what you're trying to do in regards to all the girls interested in you, but I'm not sold on it being JUST you wanting to spare feelings. Even if you're not aware of it, there's other motives there. Even if you're too busy hating yourself to notice it.""... what?" I can barely get it out, confused by her sudden attack."Hey, I'm not saying it's a hugely terrible thing." She hesitates. "Or at least, I don't think it is. Then again, I'm old fashioned like that. Even if you're afraid of actually admitting it out loud, you can't say the idea never occurred to you.""It did. Then about how it would end badly, and then about how even making that work out would cause as many problems as it solved.""See? That's another thing. You're practically covered in attractive women and all you can see is the downsides." She frowns. "Honestly, I'm a little worried for your sanity. You never even imagined a little girl on girl?""I'm trying not to, since I think that once I do it'd be really hard to stop." I hesitate. "Wait, what about you and Saber then?""Saber clearly wishes that she wasn't attracted to you, even when she clearly is at least a little bit. she actually seems completely terrified of being feminine at all. I'd suggest giving her the dick if I wasn't still rooting for you and Sakura.""Wait, wha-""Seriously. What is even her deal? It's not like you'd say no. Or anyone would. Hell, Gilgamesh has already asked for it, more than once.""And what about you?"She freezes mid tirade, and coughs into one hand with a slight blush. "Honestly, I don't even know anymore.

"A solid attempt, but I'm the undisputed Master of redirecting from uncomfortable topics." I tell her, folding my arms. "You want people to be honest, how about we start with you.

"Come on, just me and you right now. Open and honest, whatever is said here stays here."She's silent for a long time, looking down sadly. "You know, not everything bad about my legend was the fault of others.""So?""So what if I don't deserve better than I got? Am I really so big a monster that I would steal that happiness from someone who deserves it more?" She sinks to the floor, hugging her knees. "What about Sakura? Or Rin? Or Saber?

I care, therefore I will recklessly endanger myself to make you feel better."".... What if I don't deserve it?"".... Good Lord, Sakura couldn't have summoned a Servant more like herself if she tried." I sigh, shaking my head. "Listen, what you did before is irrelevant.

>>24372761The issue with this is that if he IS actually spying on us, saying so aloud to someone else lets him know the jig is up.Now I'm not terribly sold on the fact that he has an actual, consistent way to keep tabs on us, especially since him having something like that would've thrown a pretty substantial wrench into spur-of-the-moment plans, like our juking Gil between the Church and the Temple while Avenger was guarding it, that he otherwise could've dealt with almost immediately if his direct spyline was through Shirou himself.I feel like his insight on us more likely comes from whatever metaknowledge he hinted at with the "Oh right, that hasn't happened to you yet. Don't mind me, just being all non-linear." line from our first conversation with him, but whatever the actual mechanisms are behind almost EVERYTHING Avenger has done so far is still up in the air for now.
>>24372987>[x] Let her in.After Rider gets off of us. Ilya might spill the beans.
>>24372987see >>24372632's imageand let her in
>>24372987Now is not the time to press our luck. She's made a fine, amazing, stimulating, tantalizing point of her intentions, and now we need to stop ourselves before everything goes to shit. Gently remove her from ourselves (in a way that's not outright rejecting her) and go see what Ilya wants.
>>24372987goddamnit, why do siblings always have to be cockblocks.start screaming "ILYA, SAVE ONII-CHAN, RIDER IS ATTACKING ME!"
>>24372987This is the perfect excuse to finally escalate this harem issue to a head.
>>24372987>>24372632Called the FUCK out of that!>[X] Pretend to be asleep.Ilya is our cute little sister. Rule #1 of little sisters: NEVER LET THEM KNOW ABOUT THIS STUFF.They will use it against you. See that money in your wallet? No you don't, because you just bought your sis that ice cream. And that stuffed animal. And took her on a shopping spree at a too-expensive clothing shop.
>>24372987>[ ] Let her in.After Rider gets off.Ilya walking in before that could be all kinds of good in having her deal with the rest of the sharks, or all kinds of bad for dealing with everyone else incorrectly.
>>24372987Rider this is the other reason I'm dawdling. The universe doesn't approve of me having a sex drive.Let Illya in.
>>24372987http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmcYc9JNGoQ&t=2m38sStart screaming like this, proclaim that rider attacked you and was trying to steal your oxygen - she also invaded your bubble.Then on a more serious note, deal with harem issues
>>24372987>[X] Let her in.After making sure Rider is safely off us.
>>24372987>[ ] ([sighs externally] and) Let her in.I suggest we explain this situation with a doubly truthful "Rider was just getting me up."
>>24372987[x] Other."Just a sec, lemme get dressed."Then tell Rider to convince the others that they need to jump Shirou as a group. Saber would probably cooperate if she thought it was for the greater good.
>>24373008True. While I share your suspicions regarding his capabilities, paranoia is best here. We should try to find some way to express that our privacy may be compromises: We're not the only ones with valuable information to protect, after all.
>>24373083Only downside I can see of pretending to be asleep is if Ilya barges in anyway. Letting her come in after getting Rider off sounds like the safest bet.>>24373148Modifying my vote to this.
>>24373148This seems like the best plan.Just make sure rider is off of us before ilya comes in
>>24373148Yes.......Yes I can dig this.
>>24373175This. Rider goes intangible and we go hit on the other purple haired girl.
She was certainly getting a certain part of us up.
What if Rider doesn't want to stop?
>>24373244I think she knows better than that.
>>24373269Rider's gonna ride.
>>24373340A+ Rank, actually.
>>24373340Do....do we gain superpowers when she rides us?
>>24373361That is even more bizarre than the idea of her giving Saber powers from a piggybackI love it
>>24373361Only one way to find out.
>>24373361Yes. We cum swords.
>>24373175I can almost see how this conversation would go.Ilya: You were getting dressed while Rider is inside your room?Shirou: Uh... It's fine! She's got a blindfold on.Ilya won't be convinced that easily, I think.
>>24373386That sounds mildly unpleasant.
>>24373386And suddenly we know why shirou is terrified of sex.Shooting swords out of your penis has to be like the worst bladder stones *ever*
>>24373452But what if your penis is ALSO a sword?
"Damn." I mumble."Pretend your asleep." Rider orders roughly."No, I need to get you off and let her in.""That's the spir-""No, not like that."There's a pause and then Rider sighs. "Yeah, you're right. We shouldn't be doing this, not yet. At least not before you know how everyone else stands."".... Yeah...." I respond, looking away guiltily."Seriously. I'll gladly be the one missing out if it means everyone else is happy." She smiles. "I guess you're a lot closer to winning me over though, aren't you?"I sigh as she climbs off of me, and I decide to remain sitting. "Yeah, I'm awake. Come on in."Ilya enters the room, and hesitates. "Oh. Did Rider already come wake you up?""She was just getting me up, yes." I answer smoothly. "What's up?"She looks to me, and to Rider, like she's thinking a little too hard about things I'd rather she not think about right now. "... Do you have a minute to talk?""Alone?" Rider asks. "Don't mind me, I'm going to go wake Rin for Breakfast."She leaves the room, and Ilya looks at me. A very slight devilish grin crosses her face. "Moment of weakness?""Not exactly, but close enough." I sigh. "You're going to blackmail me, aren't you?""Why would I need to blackmail you? You're already more than willing to do pretty much anything I want." Ilya queries, tilting her head slightly in confusion."As true as that may be....""Nah, I'm actually kinda happy that you were willing to do something actually." She says with a surprisingly kind smile. "I feel like I should say something about them making an honest man out of you, but honest men are boring and I'm pretty sure Harems are morally counter-productive anyway.""This isn't why you came in here.""... No, it isn't." She sits down. "I'm worried about something. Berserker isn't here, but he's not dead. Or if he is. he didn't return to the Grail like he should have.">What say?
>>24373468"If he isn't dead, then that's good news, right?"
>>24373468>Harems morally counterproductive>ILYA IF YOU DONT SAY ANYTHING I WILL BUY YOU *ALL* THE ICECREAM>Broserker still being aliveWell... I guess its time to find our best friend and make sure he's okay.
>>24373468>Rider was getting me upShe sure was.
>>24373468When I was walking home last night, Red Archer showed up and delivered a message from Berserker. He was apparently under the impression that Berserker should have faded by now, so he either found another Master... or his energy ended up somewhere other than the Grail.
>>24373468"We can only assume Avenger is somehow responsible. I doubt there's another magus in the city who could support him for long."
>>24373565Oh yeah, we haven't told her that yet have we? We should do that.
Rolled 9>>24373468>he didn't return to the grailrollin for san.
>>24373596Don't count Zouken out yet.He's been below our radar for quite a while now.
>>24373508>>24373468Worst possible situation is that he's now locked in crazy-mode.
>>24373565Something like this. It doesn't say Archer is a secret ally, just delivering a dying message
>>24373468When a Servant is destroyed they return to the Grail, right? Then that means that he's either not dead but bound, which means we have to find him. He's chosen to bind himself to another master, which is unfortunate but workable depending on the master or very bad news indeed. Perhaps his essence has been dispersed--Gilgamesh and Avenger are quite powerful in their own right. It's awful to think it, but one or the other might well have the ability to annihilate a Servant's essence entirely. You'd need something capable of destroying a planet to pull that off I imagine. Lastly, perhaps his essence went elsewhere? A vessel closer at hand than the Holy Grail?And Illya... how exactly do you know whether a Servant is in the grail or not? I know what Iri was. Don't tell me that you too...?
Hold up since berserker can swap into whoever can fill the class requirements which is only to go bat shit crazy, what if he turned into a zerker who can self sustain like frankenloli or even lu de grais since im fairly sure he fufilles the parameters
>>24373468>"... No, it isn't." She sits down. "I'm worried about something. Berserker isn't here, but he's not dead. Or if he is. he didn't return to the Grail like he should have."...FUCK! The shards from the 4th war's Grail that Zouken failed to nab! Brozerker got absorbed in them, and who knows where they are?
>>24373678Huh, good point actually. Ask Illya if this could be what's going on right now.
>>24373468"You knew him better than any of us, right? Do you think he would have recontracted with anyone else, even if it was under duress?">>24373651We already know this, I think, based on Kiritsugu's 4th War notes and Merlin's reaction when we brought her up being to lose his cool and go "Fuckin' Acht; why's that raging douche gotta keep makin' the grail cores sentient."
>>24373651Well, we know from Shinji that Gilvenger were surprised that Berserker disappeared, so it's not them.
>>24373596Well, there's one person who's happy to help out, hasn't had much contact with us, and has enough mana to support Bahsahkah no matter what the hell he does...
>>24373694I've got a suspicion that Avenger has his own little pet Grail set up somewhere.>>24373708DON'T EVEN JOKE ABOUT THAT
>>24373708No Command Seals/Spells/Sigils/Thingamabobs
>>24373719I think Brozerker as Arc's servant is better than Brozerker as Avenger's
>>24373725She might not have them in a visible location ie under her clothing.
Rolled 16>>24373727question is why would she need one though?crimson moon + grail= dead universe.
>>24373739The only solution is to examine every inch of her skin for suspicious marks.And it's Arc, so that excuse might actually work.
>>24373750She doesn't need one, but if Broserker asked her for help she'd probably go 'sure why not' and contract him to supply him with mana.
>>24373708I had the most absurdly setting-breaking idea.Arc gets Brozerker.Arc can't control her bloodlust due to the additional strain.Brozerker takes almost all of her prana so she can't attack anyone.Arc, in her insane, bllod-crazed state, flips out on Berserker and tries to +1 him.Berserker drains that too and gets even stronger.Repeat until setting breaks.
>>24373761>Arc can't control her bloodlust due to the additional strain.Would probably not happen since Arc can just tap into the planets energy directly.
>>24373761You say that as if the setting is not already innately broken
Rolled 17>>24373761forgot the whole end result is the planet dies, game over GG scrub get rekt.literally that is the worst possible end ever.
>>24373703>We already know this, I thinkCorrect. Illya however does not know we know, and getting her to confirm it can serve as further proof for the character that the dream is more than a dream.And hey, Illya points. Poor Sakura though, making breakfast all alone.
>>24373758C'mon, man. You never go full Issei.>>24373761Amusingly, AC-Guy said this himself, actually, in the thread where we lost him in the first place. (Though in regard to the two fighting, not a Master/Servant contract.)>[...]. With a big enough battery he could theoretically take down Arc.>Theoretically, since it would require about as much energy as the SUN and there's a better than decent chance that the escalating power-levels between the Mad Enhancement boost and the way Arc's power works (her power level effectively being Her opponent + 1-2) would DESTROY REALITY.>EX rank Mad Enhancement is a hell of a drug.
>Oh god what the fuck is anybody even voting for.
>>24373799>>24373761It would be like an episode of DBZ.Just two people standing there for hours, screaming at each other as their powerlevel rises.
>>24373813I think the consensus is try to directly confirm that Illya's the grail vessel. We already know but would like to hear it from her.
>>24373813I think we're questioning her about her grailhood
>>24373813Tell Oneechan about Brozerker's Last Will and Testament and about Gilvenger not knowing what happened.
>>24373813It looks like a little bit of uh "Is berserker being alive a bad thing ilya" with a bit of wild speculation on whether or not he could sustain himself... and one suggestion of shirou buying ilya *all* the icecream if she stays quiet till he works out his relationship issues
Rolled 7>>24373813i think everyones in between asking illya why in the shit does she know that and who wins if arc accidently contracts bahzahkah
>>24373829>>24373837>>24373839>>24373840>Grailhood>Talk about Broserker>ALL THE ICE CREAM
>>24373840I think that trying to pressure her is just going to make her leverage us all the harder.
>>24373769Ah, I forgot about that. Directing the Earth's prana into Berserker would be much easier (and safer for everyone involved).I never remember the extent of Arc's power outside of her Marble Phantasm. I think it just registers as "more OP than OP" or something.>>24373786I never said it was a good idea, just an absurd one.>>24373799That's where I got the idea from actually. if AC-Guy never mentioned it, it would still be in that "more OP than OP" category to me and I wouldn't of bothered remembering it.
>>24373860But we're already her most reliable minion - we get her ice-cream on demand and foil all of her ambush/kidnapping attempts
>>24373813[spoilers][ ] Derail thread further.[/spoilers]Should definitely bring up the message Archer relayed to us, regardless of what else happens during this conversation.It's literally the only thing we know about Berserker's current state of being, so mentioning it seems like a pretty good idea while talking about what the deal is.
While I'm thinking about this, in reading back a little bit (making sure I didn't make up that Arc asked Berserker about whether he was the Vampire), I ran into this interesting line in 21st:>"Wait, you know who Berserker is?" Ilya asks confused.>"... Of course. The heroes you have running around are or were people, so there's still a connection to the world there." Arcueid responds, genuinely surprised.Does this mean she can just take a look at Avenger and let us know what his deal is once and for all?Or US for that matter? I'd be interested in hearing what her Internal Planet Rolodex returns as far as what it thinks our deal is.
>>24374000i'm entirely ok with this.
Why do people refer to Archer as "The Other Archer" when we know Gilg is Gilg?
>>24374000>>24374017Now that's a nice idea.
>>24374039I thought we had settled on red/gold archer.
>>24374067Whats wrong with Shirou and Gilgamesh? I mean, since we're apparently not the real Shirou anyways, it shouldn't cause too much of a problem
"When I encountered Gilgamesh the other night, I spoke briefly to the other Archer. He said he spoke to Berserker." Ilya looks at me surprised. "Apparently he wanted him to pass along a message to me, and told Archer that they wouldn't be meeting again. Apparently Archer said he was weakened and starting to fade at the time, and guessed he might even be dead by then.""He isn't." Ilya says with conviction.".... That you're so certain worries me." I tell her. ".... Ilya, I found some of Dad's notes about your Mother.....""That we have a strong connection to the Grail?" She asks. "I don't know all the details, but we're modeled after our ancestor, who gave her life to serve as the basis of the Grail system. Whenever the Grail begins to manifest, I'm the one who's supposed to act as the conduit.""So you would know if a Servant died....""Because they would pass through me on the way to the Greater Grail." She says with a nod. "I was told by Grandfather that I would begin to inherit their memories to a degree as the Grail began to manifest, and he gave me instructions on how to mitigate the strain of the mantling until I had won the War.""The strain?""I'm not a proper Homunculus like my Mother was, and my magecraft and the way my circuits and Crest were awakened and implanted have apparently stunted my growth to a degree as well." She answers calmly. "It's therefore possible that I won't take the process as.... gracefully as my Mother did. In addition, there was no other Einzbern champion in this war. I had to serve as both a vessel and a Master at once.">What say/do?
>>24374089Well first of all, most people don't know that Archer is Shirou.And I honestly don't know why we don't say Gilgamesh, considering that's what we call him IC
>>24374100ask if there's a way to stop it
>>24374100"Is it possible to hijack this process? Cause the Servants to go into a different vessel?"
>>24374089Except for the part where everyone is still calling us Shirou, including the guy writing the plot posts.Having two Shirous is confusing enough when you're one of them, having to read what is rapidly becoming UNLIMITED SHIROU WORKS without clear proper nouns is too much.>>24374111Merlin told us that he was going to look into this for us, so it's at least somewhat being addressed.>>24374100"Is there any way to change what the Greater Grail will treat as the vessel? Shinji mentioned something about Avenger's plan having been to use the Vampire as a vessel for something, and the Grail is the only thing I can think of to tie it all together."This covers the "I want to help Ilya" line of questioning while also bringing up the line of questioning on potential counterfeit grails that Berserker might've gone to.
>>24374100Can't we redirect it into an actual fucking cup for one? I mean, it's called the Holy GRAIL for a reason.
>>24374100Is it possible that someone could have set up their own conduit to the Grail to cut you out of the loop?The evidence suggests that Gilvenger didn't get their hands on him, and the list of people capable of supplying him with power is VERY short. Given that we're already thinking the Grail has been mucked with, that seems more likely than him miraculously finding a new Master at the last second.
>>24374161The Einzberns tried an inanimate object for the first three wars.It... didn't work out.
>>24374157>having to read what is rapidly becoming UNLIMITED SHIROU WORKS without clear proper nouns is too much.
>>24374178Bones are the bones of meBody is my body and blood is my bloodI have tripped over a thousand flagsUnaware of the birds, nor aware of beesWithstood pain to create harems, waiting for one's arrivalI have no regrets. This is the only pathMy whole life was Unlimited Shirou Works
>>24374209>This is what Rin chants every times she's about to go to sleep at night
I pull her into a hug, and she lets out a small surprised squeak. "Onii-chan?""Sorry. I just... I felt I needed to do that." I answer, letting her go. She smiles back a little sadly. "Is there anyway to change that? Make someone or something else the vessel?""With me being the dedicated target for the Spirits?" She answers. "Maybe if they did something like tear out my heart and implant it elsewhere." She sees my eyes widen. "Or, I guess someone could try and use an older Grail that was still intact. You would need to either find and repair the original artifact, or somehow...." She hesitates. "Actually, I'm not even sure of any other option, given how the last war ended."There's a long moment of uncomfortable silence. "There's no other way?""No. Well, Maybe I could survive the process if it was done quickly and cleanly especially since I took precautions. Having that much raw magical energy might have other consequences to my health though.""... Huh." I say, for lack of anything else to say. "Well, maybe someone found a way around it. Gilgamesh and Avenger seemed surprised to find out he was missing, since he apparently sent them running.""But then who's left to-" She hesitates, eyes wide. "Zouken. He claimed to be involved in the original forging of the Grail system. He would know how, if there was a way.""He said he didn't though.""And you believed him?"".... Good point.....">Actions?
>>24374293Cooking?Not much else we can do in this scene
>>24374293Breakfast. Our busy day just got busier
>>24374293Breakfast time.I really think our situation with the girls is reaching critical mass, and action must be taken.Gentlemen, I think it's time we formally suggest and pursue the Tenchi Solution.
>>24374293"I think that if Zouken had been successful in making a new Grail out of the pieces of the old one he wouldn't have mentioned to me at all that he could make one. Either way, too much thinking for not having had breakfast."
>>24374293Sakura may be a fine cook and all, but it's our duty to be there, and we've been putting it off for far to long
>>24374293>"Maybe if they did something like tear out my heart and implant it elsewhere.":D
>>24374293Pick Ilya up. Carry to kitchen. Hand to Sakura.
AC-Guy's internet has gone retarded and stuff, so he was gonna call it a night and continue tomorrow.Preferably in this thread if it lived.

Rolled 16>>24374360>implying we can ever mess up cooking
>>24374360We only screw up badly when it doesn't have anything to do with Shirou's main skills, swords and cooking
Just wanted to stop in and say thanks AC-Guy. I may frequently forget what fun is or how to laugh but your threads always bring it all back.
Oh look, Zouken's coming up again. And everyone else in the house thinks he might've been scrying on us.Man, the rest of our house is gonna be super paranoid.>>24374293>"He said he didn't though."Zouken DEFINITELY told us he tried to do Grail stuff; not necessarily to reconstruct it, but enough to let us know that he was planning something with at least some of the remains of the 4th Grail.>"Secure the grail, use it's power for my own purposes." He responds evenly. "As I swore to do when it was created." He looks me over, before continuing. "I suppose there's no real point in hiding the truth any more. I originally adopted Sakura to try and make for something of a puppet heir. To strengthen the Matou blood again, or even use her to win the war. At the end of the last one, I attempted to collect fragments of the grail to assist in the process.">"What happened?">"They weren't what I expected them to be. They were pale and lifeless, but then suddenly they took shape and left me behind. I tried to investigate, and resolved myself to playing the long game instead." He shakes his head. "The last war ended... wrong. I was hoping to exploit that fact, but I failed to gather the resources to do so when suddenly it began to reappear." He sighs, and then looks at me. "I didn't see the conclusion of the last war firsthand, but we all felt the aftermath. I suspect that the Grail we fight for now isn't the one I helped create."Field too long, so gonna be posting this in another post, but rest assured>ShirouTinfoilHat.jpgincoming.
>>24374572>They were pale and lifeless, but then suddenly they took shape and left me behind....This could easily be where Avenger came from. Zouken salvages 4th Grail fragments, planning on doing MAGIC to them. 5th Grail starts to reappear earlier than scheduled due to fuckery; reconnection to Angra Mainyu awakens the 4th Grail fragments, which come together in the form of Avenger. Said avatar of Angra Mainyu goes off to try and grease the wheels so that the Grailbound version of himself is able to incarnate properly this time.This also explains him calling us Brother in an even more literal fashion, considering that the 4th Grail he was 'born' from was Iri, and Ilya is our sister. (Or in a more conceptual sense, that we were both 'born' of the disaster in the wake of the 4th Grail War.)Obviously 100% speculation, but hey, it's interesting to consider.
>>24374601Balls. That makes entirely too much sense.
>>24374539Wait, who is the man in that relationship again?
Did AC guy died?
>>24374857No, his laptop did.
>>24374866Does he do this on purpose?I suggest buying a Windows RT tablet for questing purposes. You can get one for 500€ and it supports all the usual USB devices. It will run for hours on a charge, it won't crash and doesn't have any moving parts that might fail.Perfect backup device as long as you don't need to do anything that can't be achieved through either Office or an app from the store.VLC will come in a few months, as well.
>>24375150I suggest not buying Windows anytning ever, that can only lead to tears.
>>24375766Windows RT is fucking awesome.It's what iOS and Android on tablets should have been. But it's not too late for change.The charms system is the perfect idea for inter-app communication.You want to share your images on Facebook? Use the share charm from inside the photo app on your Facebook app.Facebook fad ended and you want to share to some other network?Just install that network's app and use the share charm like usual.No hard-coded bullshit where you are dependant on the mercy of the developers anymore. Just some clean standardized interfaces that make everyone's life easier.Apple wouldn't be able to get that kind of engineering done if their life depended on it and introducing it into Android wouldn't help at all due to the prevalence of 2.X versions.I don't give a fuck about Microsoft's future, but the Windows RT system was a stroke of genius.
>>24375837I respectfully disagree. The limited functionality and control over the system is a pain.Windows 8 is the way to go.
>>24375883>The limited functionality and control over the system is a pain.You are forgetting that it's competing with iOS and Android.Yes, full Windows 8 is obviously superior. But Windows RT is the best basis for ARM systems.I do hate the fact that it doesn't allow for normal sideloading. Hell, it has all the functions of Windows 8 and most Open-source stuff could be easily recompiled to run on ARM.
>>24374293Sorry if I sound like the crazy guy here but what if we get Arc to stick with us since she's showing up for breakfast, we call lancer and tell him to bring bazette over immediately for a strat pow-wow. We eat, ball up and go try to actually talk with Avenger. Essentially everybodies plan is completely fucked and slamming into everyone elses completely fucked plan so at this point we need to get this shit straightened out like the mature adults we can all be. If they don't want to talk we BEFREIND them until they will. And then after making sense of that unholy mess we grab Zouken who's the only person we know that has a solid grasp on grail-wizard shit and do the same. iirc he's said that he doesn't really care for this grail war because it's already tits up for his goal of whatever it was. Ilya may be useful for some grail stuff but we have a guy that helped make it and getting help figuring out the fucked situation may be enough motivation for him to care without us having to somehow pin assassin down, rule breaker zouken, and then find a way to box up an assassin and not put Ilya at risk by killing a servant before we have her grail sitch handled.Even if he isn't feeling chatty we'd have 5.5 servants and a true ancestor if we could even find the worm of a man. >>24375150>500.00 EUR = 652.614 USD>spending that on a TABLET with all the issues it has>implying AC-Guy has a bunch of dosh just hanging around
>>24375837>introducing it into Android wouldn't help at all... you, uh. You do realize Android's had that since API version 1, right? It's called Intents. Seriously, I have written code for the interface in question to do exactly what you are describing.
>>24376426That's assuming the real Emiya doesn't just murder us on sight from the pure principle of the thing.
>>24376465Then why don't apps actually make use of that? Why is added Twitter or Facebook integration news on tech blogs when there's already this kind of API?That was part of my point against Android. Even if it's there, no one will use it due to fragmentation.Hell, even many of the Windows RT apps are written by mouthbreathers who simply don't understand the plattform.>>24376426>>500.00 EUR = 652.614 USD>>spending that on a TABLET with all the issues it has>>implying AC-Guy has a bunch of dosh just hanging around>iPad costs the same>No one gives a fuck>Dat double standard
>>24376426Sounds like a plan.Might want to contact EMIYA first, though.>>24376523
>>24376523But we've already reached more or less of a truce with archer and him essentially being a faux nemesis "spy". Our insistence on going the save everybody route was what got him to show us his UBW armory so we'd be beefed up. He might have to make a vow for a duel to the death when this is all over pledge to save face but he'd still help us while trying to be visibly analpained to keep up the deception.>>24376547>buying an ipad
>>24376630>>buying an ipadiPad users are the biggest group in terms of Windows RT hatred.Then again, I have my Surface RT and many people at my university are now interested in the device. Turns out that it's just a matter of actually showing it to them.I wish Microsoft's PR department wasn't staffed by shitcuntniggers. They have way too much undeserved hatred through botched advertising.

Aaw yeah, F/SA thread!>12 hours late, and you guys haven't even cooked breakfast yetWell, suppose I'll update my timeline .txt to include you guys making out with Rider.Good job?
>>24379951Hey, we might have busted Rider out of her "I'm worthless and don't deserve love BAWWWWWW" mindset, so we're halfway to making Team Purple not so damn pathetic.Now we just have to worry about Rider trying to molest us whenever she thinks she can get away with it, but thats preferable to her and Sakura sitting around being sad together.
>>24380076The issue is Sakura yandere mode, though.Now that we are basically cheating on her, if she learns about it indirectly.
>>24380308She probably knows it happened through Rider. Probably.
>>24380308Rider is the one she's least likely to freak the fuck out about I think.Plus, assuming Rider got what we were implying (she's generally pretty good about that), I think she'll be down for wingman (wingwoman? wingServant?) duty to get Sakura in on this. We did make some pretty grand claims that amounted to "we can fuck, because that does not preclude me also fucking everyone else, so you don't have to feel guilty about stealing me from anyone".We've dug ourselves pretty deep here, but at the rate we're going we might be able to dig straight through the earth and pop out the other side before the tunnel collapses and kills us. Its pretty much our only option.
>>24380336It would be evil if she learned about it through a dream...>>24380407The issue isn't Rider. It's Sakura.Think about what kind of person she does. Do you really think she's the kind of girl who'd instantly jump to the "harem" option?She's more likely to freak the fuck out, without telling anyone. At any moment she might be plotting to murder everyone and we'll never see it coming.
