>Previous threadshttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=%20Heroic%20Liner>Day 3, late afternoon After a rather short trip home, taking care to not bleed all over my casual clothes, I wince as I park my bike and stagger to the door. And fall through as Liz pulls it open, landing on my face. GAH that hurts. Liz seems somewhat surprised, and helps me to my feet with surprising strength. "Sella is in your room with bandages. Though you probably need to be healed from the looks of that..." She says, helping me to the stairs before heading back to the couch. Staggering up, I remove my jacket when I get to my door, and step in to see Sella pacing, box of medical supplies on my bed. Immediately upon seeing me, her expression turns concerned, and from there to worried when she sees my side. "What happened to you?" She asks hurriedly, rushing over and helping me to my bed. I grunt, and feel... Something moving through my body. Magic? A glance at her shows her to be concentrating, so that's most likely. "You were punctured? Then ripped the weapon through your side?" She asks, tone halfway between worried and angry. "This will take quite a bit of magic to heal. You're lucky to even have-" She pauses, looking at my hand where mom left that spell. I glance down as well, and see a crimson glow on the back, in the shape of some stylized sword. "...Lady Irisviel certainly plans ahead." Sella says, shaking her head. "I'll start healing you, and you should be fully healed by tomorrow night." I nod, barely restraining the wince, as she sets to work. ...(1/2)
>>33723681 (2/2) After about an hour of poking, proding, and healing, Sella is looking somewhat exhausted, and the worst of the wound is sealed, though the area is still tender. "So... Is that it?" I ask, stretching a little. Not much pain, though I can feel it stretch. "Just rest?" She nods. "There's still a spell at work, so you shouldn't strain yourself unduly." She says, standing up and nodding to the door. "I need to go finish making dinner now, at any rate." I look over her again. She's clearly tired from the exertion. As she leaves, I follow her, catching her on the stairs down. >"No, let me. You're tired from helping me, so I should take over and let you rest.">"Could I help, at least? I feel sort of guilty about how tired you are, so..." >Let her go
>"Could I help, at least? I feel sort of guilty about how tired you are, so..."
>>33723701>"No, let me. You're tired from helping me, so I should take over and let you rest."
>Could I get a Negotiate check, then? 1d20, best of first three. DC is 12.
>>33723701>"Could I help, at least? I feel sort of guilty about how tired you are, so..."
>Let me help>Negotiate 17!I tap her shoulder, getting her attention."Sella, let me help with dinner." I say, as we descend the stairs. "I feel sort of guilty about how tired you are, so..."I hear a crash, much like yesterday afternoon, and as we round the bottom of the staircase, see Ilya with a horrified look on her face again, school supplies scattered everywhere. Sella sigh, and turns around, her expression changing to a somewhat surprised one. "...Shirou. You didn't put a shirt on after we finished." She says, shaking her head as I look down at my arms and notice that fact. "Hurry back and you can help me, I suppose." "Ah, right. Be right back." I rub the back of my head sheepishly and head back upstairs, grabbing a shirt and pulling it on as I return to the kitchen and set to work with Sella.>Cooking check, please. DC 10.
Rolled 15>>33724355nat 1 inc
>Cooking 15!Sella and I smoothly work together, finishing the dishes she had left half-prepared in practically no time at all. As we place the dishes on the table, Ilya and Liz move to their places, one sulking, the other looking bored. Dinner is eaten in relative silence, and, like yesterday, Ilya heads up to her room as soon as things are finished, while Liz and Sella clear the table. I stretch again. I should get to doing something useful, but I can't 'strain' myself...>Go practice magic some?>Go check on Ilya. Something's gotten her upset.>Go to bed
>>33724896>>>Go check on Ilya. Something's gotten her upset.
>>33724896Check on Ilya, but quickly, she probably won't be very talkative. Afterwards, practice ye majicks.
>Go check on Ilya. Something's gotten her upset.
>>33724896>>Go check on Ilya. Something's gotten her upset.Our poor little sister. What could possibly be wrong?
Rolled 15>>33724896>Go check on Ilya. Something's gotten her upset.
>Check on IlyaI sigh, heading upstairs again. Ilya's door is closed, and when I knock, I hear mumbling, like last night. "Ilya, it's me." I say, shaking my head. "What's bothering you?" ...There's a muffled "Go away", and I sigh and open the door. The room's in a little more disarray than last night, but still the same general appearance. Ilya is again on her bed, face buried in pillows. Again."...Ilya, are you alright?" I ask in a concerned tone. She mumbles something."Is there something going on I should know about?" I press, shaking my head. "Bullying? Anything like that?"There's silence for a moment, as Ilya turns and gives me a blank look. "Go away!" She says, and I duck back outside as her pillow hits the door frame. "...If you want to talk, please, tell me. Or Sella. Or Liz. We're here for you, you know." I scoot the pillow back inside, and pull her door closed carefully as she glares at me. ...Must be a girl thing. I shrug. >Magic practice>Go to bed>Write in

Rolled 20>>33725579>>33726083I'm sorry I missed the roll
>>33726375...as are we all, magical anon.
>Try and understand girls>Magic practice...I shake my head, and head downstairs, trying to understand the thought process of the feminine mind to no real success."Hey, uh, Sella?" I say, peeking around the corner of the kitchen. She glances over to me from the sink, Liz drying dishes next to her."Do you think it's safe for me to practice magic at the moment?" I ask, and she seems to go into thought for a few moments."Only what I showed you, and so long as you don't exhaust yourself." She says finally, nodding and going back to washing plates. "Alright, thanks." I say, heading back upstairs and to my room.I set to work, focusing on honing the most directly applicable part of my skillset- Reinforcement. >Magecraft- 9After about an hour of practice, I feel my arm beginning to burn, and the air in my room feels more 'light' than usual. With no real progress done, I sigh, cracking open my window and letting fresh air flow in slightly, before changing to my pajamas. Within a few minutes, I fall asleep.>Day 4, MorningI stretch as I sit up, and look at the clock. ...If it were any day but Sunday, I'd be late for school, I realize, shaking my head. Getting dressed in casual clothes, I think about what I can do with the dayWhoever the chain user was is probably licking his wounds. The dog guy... I don't even know. Though they mentioned allies, I doubt they'd be that active at the moment, with two of their number injured, at least somewhat. I should be able to move around freely.Finally pulling on my shoes, I head downstairs, and eat breakfast in relative silence. Sella is busying herself around the house while Liz watches TV.Ilya's probably sleeping in....What am I going to do with the day?>Find a friend>See about magic practice with Sella>See about magic practice by myself (Class Card?)>Investigate oddities around town>Write in

>Magic practice, with Sella!>Negotiate- 11I walk around the house a bit, eventually finding Sella doing laundry, and taking special care with a shirt of mine. "So, Sella. Think you could give me some mor-"I pause as she turns and levels her gaze at me. She appears to be somewhat annoyed, but not quite angry..."Not right now, Shirou." She says in her normal tone. "I'm dealing with the laundry. And this stain."...I nod, and back out of the room. Practicing magic with Sella is out. And since Ilya's likely to wake up soon and work on homework, I probably shouldn't be practicing here, either. ...There's got to be somewhere relatively secluded to go train a bit...>The park>The temple?>Go wander for a bit and see what I can find>Write in

Rolled 2>>33728507Well, I mean what could go wrong?
>Search 16, Magecraft 18>CrestAfter about an hour of walking around, I finally manage to find a nice clearing in the woods, seemingly untouched by humans. Firing up the spell on my arm, I feel the warmth I'm coming to associate with this magic as I strengthen my whole body. I pick up a stick from the ground, and begin to practice reinforcing it, seeing how it changes and reacts with strikes to a nearby tree. From the gouges it's leaving, I could probably use this to at the very least dent steel. I'm not sure how well it would work on something like those chains I was attacked with, but... It might be able to last through a hit or two. Moving on, I begin to try and put the Wishcraft that was mentioned through its paces....Which isn't as helpful as I wanted, I realize, by the end of my practice. A glance at my watch shows it to be early in the afternoon, and I'm feeling drained from my practice. ...>Go find a friend to bug?>Go get lunch>Write in

I may as well head there first.After a bit of walking, I find myself trying to decide where to go...>The Chinese restaurant- I could get myself a hearty meal there. >Some of the food stands>Write in

>Chinese RestaurantI make for the only Chinese restaurant in town. Sure, they overspice a bit. A lot. Maybe too much, thinking about it, I realize, as I find myself sitting down at the bar, ordering some mapo tofu.As I start to regret my choice of dining, I hear the door open behind me. Craning my neck, I see-...Ayaka Sajyou? With a kendo bag?I blink as she takes a seat a few stools down from me, and rests her bag next to her. She never struck me as the kendo type... Or the spice type.She orders, and then sighs, probably out of exhaustion. ...There's a silence as we both wait for our orders to be filled....>Wait silently- if she didn't notice me, she probably has other things on her mind>Try and strike up a conversation- it has been a while, and I do somewhat see her as a friend>Write in

Rolled 15>>33731049>Try and strike up a conversation- it has been a while, and I do somewhat see her as a friendHave you ever felt like you're looking in a mirror, even though you're looking at someone else?
>Conversation I cough lightly, and Ayaka seems to jump in surprise. "OH!" She says, turning to look at me. "Uh, Shirou! What are you doing here?" I shrug. "Pondering my life choices that led me to being masochistic enough to eat here. You?" I say, watching as she blinks. "...Kinda the same, I guess." Ayaka rubs the back of her head. "Just thinking about something the priest told me." ...Priest? She seems to notice my curious expression, and nods. "Over on the other side of town, there's a church." She says. "I sorta... Well, got placed under his care until I was old enough to live on my own, after the fire. I know a few other people who were there, so we meet up and talk a bit every once in a while. Last time, there were... Some odd things said." ...She obviously doesn't want to talk about it, so I sigh. "So, you like swords?" I ask, pointing to the kendo bag. She looks surprised, but gives a half-nod. "I, too, like swords." She blinks, and I can see a faint smile forming. "What got you out of the house, anyway?" I ask, glancing at the clock. Is the cook stalling, or something? "Last time we spoke, you were scurrying home with a stack of books, and Ayako told me to not bother you." Ayaka seems to be thinking of how to word things... "I... Decided I needed to change. I was waiting for a Prince Charming to come to me." She says. "I think I need to be able to find him my own." "And...Kendo?" I shrug, my tone turning joking. "You aren't going to go out there and beat some poor guy half to death, are you?" She gives me a look. "I just think it's a healthy sport." She says after a few seconds. "And it's not really kendo. I managed to find a few European swords for practicing, and I've always liked their shape. And the book I picked up yesterday is a big help." ...The restaurant is silent, save for the sound of cooking for a few minutes. (1/2)
>>33732468(2/2)Our respective meals are placed before us, and we both seem to try and minimize the time we have to suffer by eating quickly. ...After finishing and paying, we head out of the restaurant, glancing at each other as we step through the door. "Well... I have uh, more practice to do." Akaya says, giving me a wave and starting to turn around. "I'll see you at school." >See you later, then>Do you have a sparring partner? >Write in
>>33732468>Do you have a sparring partner?We need the training, and those books were likely Magecraft. Besides, we have common history, so that's great.
>>33732512>Do you have a sparring partner?Because beating up on little girls is A-OK!
>>33732512>Do you have a sparring partner?I need more Shirou.
>>33732512>Do you have a sparring partner?Because we need to git gud.inb4 she works with those shifty dudes
>>33731294Eh, Ayaka's really nothing like Shirou, aside from the whole protagonist thing.
>>33732512>>Do you have a sparring partner?They did both admit they're at least a little bit masochistic.>"So, you like swords?" I ask, pointing to the kendo bag. She looks surprised, but gives a half-nod. "I, too, like swords.">She blinks, and I can see a faint smile forming.Love you, you slow sod you.>>33732686And the super affinity for a normally disparaged type of magecraft.
>>33732512>>See you later, then"If you ever need a sparring partner, let me know."Asking outright seems a little pushy. This puts the option on the table whilst remaining vaguely aloof.
>>33732512>Do you have a sparring partner?I wonder if the swordplay from the Install can bleed over onto vanilla Shirou.
>>33732827Yes. I believe our ability to learn from our card's experiences was stated by GoldenMoon earlier, in fact.
>>33732905What card do we have again?
>>33732984Archer, which is iirc exactly why we have the bleedover.
>>33733023It's not Archer. The Class Card is Caster, and it's not the Counter Guardian known as Archer.
>>33732984>>33733023It's Caster though it appears to be a Caster version of Shirou what with the swords & all.
>>33733023Nope. We have Caster. Caster happens to be a version of Shirou Emiya though, so it works.
Through the wonders of the Kaleidoscope it's possible that, no matter which card Shirou lays hands on, it could be a version of himself.
>>33733059>>33733064>>33733067Eh, looks like I have to reread the earlier threads.
>Sparring partner?"Hang on a second." I say, catching her attention before she goes. "Do you have someone you're sparring with?" She blinks, before shaking her head. "No. I just picked up the manual yesterday, and I'm trying to get the forms down first." Ayaka says, giving you a funny look. "Why?""Well... If you want one, let me know. I've been looking to work on my own swordsmanship, too, and if someone else is learning a similar style..." I shrug. "We may as well both learn at once, right?"She seems to consider it for a moment, then nods."Alright. I'll let you know if I need someone to practice with." She says somewhat cheerfully, giving me a wave and then going. I pop my neck, and glance around the street. Nothing really odd, and I'm feeling rested. >Go back to training magic?

>Train magic- Class CardI head back to the clearing I had taken over, and set to work again. "Class Card- Caster. Install." I say, feeling the power flow through me again.A glance down shows my clothes have changed to that same style, like the last two times.So. This 'Class Card' is able to give me the powers of... Someone. Who specializes in summoning weapons to use on the fly. I practice for a bit, summoning just a 'Weapon', and then trying for something specific, like a 'Sword'. >Magecraft 13!After a half hour of practice, I'm feeling exhausted again, but like I have some good information. The more specific I go, the easier it is and less expensive, prana-wise, it is to summon it. 'The Black and White swords' cost roughly 70% of what they cost the first night, and were far easier to summon. >Day 4, Mid-AfternoonDragging myself back to town, I feel like I should do...

>>33735078>>33735180Seconding this. It may not be wise, OOC, but it makes sense for someone who's new to the game. Besides, Irisiviel said she wasn't a threat, so that should make Shirou more willing.Heck, if we get lucky, we might actually get some books on theory or something, the kinda stuff you can learn at the Clocktower, but not someone's personal mysteries.
>>33735180Curiosity compels me to compel Shirou. This.
>BookstoreI drag myself back through the shopping district. Finally finding myself at the bookstore, I straighten up enough to look presentable, and step through....The store feels old. Looking around, I can't really see anything that might be a magical tome, and the old woman manning the counter... Doesn't seem all that 'mage-like' to me.Using enough prana to 'sense' the area while behind some shelves from her... I come up empty. No empty space like last time I was here. "Excuse me." I ask, stepping around to look at the clerk. "But do you have any other staff members?" ...The old woman looks at me for a minute, and shakes her head. "Not since my husband passed away three years ago." She says sadly.I hurriedly apologize for dredging up old feelings, and go back to looking at the books for anything that might be remotely magecraft related. ...After too long of searching, I find... Nothing relevant. Picking up a rather generic book on the uses of various weapons, I head to the counter and pay. As I walk home, I think about it... If there's no other employees, and the old woman doesn't feel like that... Who's the mage? It'd have to be a customer...I shake my head and open the door, putting my shoes away as I drag myself into the house proper.
Well, I think I'm gonna call it for the night. I'm getting too tired/slow to work on updates, and I have work at 6 in the morning. If the threads still up,I suppose I could do Q&A, or maybe run when I get off work.

OP should switch to something like a forum, since he can't really keep up with the post times a *chan quest demands.He posted pretty fast this thread but I don't know if he can keep it up
>>33739260We're playing as Prismaverse Shirou and being a superhero. And it's a Fate quest. It's bound to get weird.
>>33739260I think she is involved in this, she is just too weird to not be involved in this mess and this wish granting group.
>>33745864Well, obviously.The only real question is if Sacchin is involved as well.
>>33745864....Wait a minute.There was still a fire. The HGW was stopped, but....Maybe someone's trying to gather prana for a revival of it? Or something?
>>33746376Maybe... but I don't feel these guys are that related to the holy grail. I mean they aren't using Servants or anything like that. I do think Ayaka might be another Heroic Liner like Shirou, with her own Class Card or something. So she ends up being the rival/final boss?
>>33746376Well, yeah.I mean, it's not like there's much else in fuyuki that involves wish granting.The only part I'm not too sure about is their references to 'life force', but that could just be their ignorance shining through.
>>33746401Servants/Class Cards are not required to activate the holy grail, they're just fuel that can be replaced by large numbers of inferior souls.In the 4th war, so many innocents were killed as collateral that the grail manifested while there were still two Servants left.
>>33746401They might be. Might not, as well.What the hell are they even doing, anyway? They don't seem to be magi, or any of the other supernatural things... But there's no way anyone normal can pull chains like that out of their arms, or generate dogs.
>>33746531Could be Espers?They all have weird powers iirc.They could also be demons, I guess, though there'd be much more uproar if that was the case.

Alright, then. After I'm done getting cleaned up from work, I'll get cracking on the next post.
>>33746568I think they might be demons, or maybe they have obtained some magic from the grail? Actually demons might be the correct answer, I think that the powers these guys have are wishes people have that materialized into demons... by Grail-kun! Ayaka is probably the Saber-Class Card holder... so that means she transforms into Proto-Saber?
>Day 4- Late AfternoonI stumble into the house, feeling exhausted. Liz waves a greeting from her seat on the couch, and I see Sella and Ilya sitting at the table, the latter working on what appears to be homework while the former watches on approvingly. Heading upstairs to drop my new book on arms and armament usage in my room, I sigh as I hear an annoyed shout from my little sister. Sounds like Sella just corrected her.Finally returning to downstairs, I grab a glass of water from the kitchen, and try to figure out what I can do now...>Ask Liz about the presence yesterday- she should know more about it>Go take over for Sella>Distract Sella from Ilya>Write in

>>33750992So, not that they're demons themselves, but that their powers make use of the element 'demons' to become reality?Personally I'm fairly sure they are demons themselves, the guy with the chains performed way too well against a class carded Magus for a self-trained Magus or whatever.

>>33751087Can't we ask Liz and then take over for Sella?if not, >Go take over for Sella.
>>33751457What about "using" a demon? Like, having one attach itself to them, and realizing their 'wish' somehow? Chain guy might just be creative and somewhat experienced, too.
>>33751087>Distract Sella from IlyaWe need to rebuild our Ilya social link.
>>33751635Like Merem? Unlikely, humans in the Nasuverse can't be around demons without their souls being warped and their emotions drained, much less have one inside them.Unless they are suffering these drawbacks, but have yet to realise.
>>33751616>You, in fact, can.>Quick asking Liz is basically gonna be assumed now. >Take over for Sella and distract her are tied. I'll go with the one with most votes at 5-til.
>>33751087>>Distract Sella from Ilya
>Ask Liz>Distract Sella from IlyaI slip past the argument at the table, moving to the living room. "Liz." I start, checking over my shoulder to ensure Ilya is distracted by Sella. "You mentioned that presence yesterday being 'known', right? Who is it?" She blinks, turning to look at me blankly for a few seconds. "The heir of a local family of magi." She says turning back to face the TV. "She doesn't have much talent, and her family crest was destroyed years ago." I sigh. Looks like I'm not getting anything else out of her. Heading to the table, I tap my side and nod towards the stairs to Sella. Her eyes flash between me and Ilya, and I feign a wince, getting a sigh."Ilya, I'm going to go check on your brother." She says, getting an expression halfway between rage and relief from my little sister. "He hurt himself yesterday, and since he can't really see the spot, I need to look at it."There's silence for a moment, before Ilya speaks."... Fine. I'll just do my homework, then." She says, and Sella nods, standing up.After a few minutes, I'm sitting on my bed, having the place where I was injured yesterday poked."I see you went out and exerted yourself." Sella says, disapproval in her tone. "How much exercise did you do to get this sweaty?""None? I just had lunch at the Chinese place..." I say....She nods knowingly. ...>Ask about the other magi families in town>Ask about dinner>Ask about how my healing is going>Write in

>>33753177I wonder what Ilya's going to think we got up to with Sella this time.Also how much time it'll take for her to be right.
Rolled 10>>33753577Realistically, it won't matter, since not even a natural 20 to understand girls was enough
>>33753714Yeah, Prisma Shirou is a lot denser than Core Shirou.
Rolled 17>>33753774Which is weird, because Prisma Shirou doesn't have the messed up childhood that would cause issues like that.
>>33753714There was no roll for that. >>33753847It's subconsciously blocked out, in Ilya's case. Because little sister.Otherwise, he's not quite as dense.
>>33753847Eh, you can't really expect the same person to have the same base talents across the entire multiverse.Just as there are dimensions where the mighty Shinji-oh! has conquered the entire solar system so too must there be ones where Shirou makes Natsuru look like Hydrogen.
>>33753971>Otherwise, he's not quite as dense.U wot m8? I mean, that might be true of this quest, but in actual Prisma Shirou is way, way denser than his FSN counterpart.
>>33754091Main Shirou is made of swords. This Shirou is evidently made of flesh. Swords=Denser than flesh.
>>33754196This Shirou, yeah.Prisma Shirou, however, is made out of a theoretical supermaterial so dense it has transcended mere gravitic pull and now acts as a dimensional anchor for Kaleidoscope users.
>Other magi families>Healing"So, what other families of mages are there in town?" I ask, getting a surprised look from Sella.She seems to be thinking for a moment, trying to recall something."Well... The Tohsaka and Makiri clans settled here a long while ago." She says, rubbing her chin. "Both are, or, rather, were allies to the Einzbern."I raise an eyebrow, and she nods."After the... Event ten years ago, the majority of the von Einzberns disappeared. Your mother, your sister, my sister, and I are the ones who are left, at least, that we know about." She says, sad look in her eye."Regardless, the Makiri clan has all but died out, having no circuits of note in their generation. And the Tohsaka broke ties with us after the events of ten years ago, for a handful of reasons your parents have yet to tell me."She sighs.There's a brief lull..."I recognize 'Tohsaka', since a girl at my school has that name." I say, shaking my head. "But she's been out of the country for an exchange program or something for the last few months. Are there any other known mages around?"...Sella seems to be thinking. "Yes. One, whose family has basically been wiped out, including their crest." She says, still considering something. "However, Lady Irisviel expressed an interest in 'setting you up' with her, so I rather suspect telling you her name would prove to be unwise." "...An interest? Like when mom tried to get me to date Ayako, and the time she somehow locked me in the Archery club with Shinji's sister?" I ask, flashing back to those two incidents. (1/2)
>>33754794 (2/2)Poor Sakura was so nervous about things that I wound up having to sit on the opposite side of the room, until someone managed to get the doors unstuck and let us out. "Exactly." Sella nods grimly. "...And if I know, she'll...?"Sella gives me a blank stare, and I grimace. "So, you have no idea, too. Great." I pinch the bridge of my nose. "Is it the same 'non-threat' that Liz mentioned, at least?" "Yes." She rubs her own forehead. "Now, could we move off of your mother's scheming?" I sigh after a second, and nod. "How's my healing coming? I know I burned through a lot of prana today, but..."Sella's expression changes, to a more clinical one, and I feel a tingle run through my body. "Your side is almost completely recovered." She says, seemingly satisfied. "I honestly expected you to disregard me, and engage in physical activity.""When someone who just patched together a hole in my side says to not do something, I don't." I shrug. A glance at the clock shows it to be a bit later than I expected- almost time for dinner...>Go cook it by myself>Ask Sella if she wants help>See if Ilya is needing help still>Write in

Sella gets the message, and the two of us start to head downstairs."I'm going to go see if Ilya still needs help." I say, glancing at Sella as we head round the corner at the foot of the staircase. "After we're done, I'd be happy to help you with dinner."She nods happily, and we split up, Taking the spot Sella left to talk with me, I look over at Ilya, who's....Intently staring at her papers and book, ignoring me. "Ilya?" I ask, giving her a concerned look. "Do you need some help?" "No." She says sharply. "I can do it myself." ...I shrug. "Alright. If you do need help, come get me and I'll be glad to." I say, standing up to go help Sella. Ilya grumbles, and I hurry into the kitchen. ... >Cooking 14!We fairly quickly make batter and slice vegetables, Sella working under my direction as the oil begins bubbling for the tempura.I start to prepare the udon, and after a fair while we finish.Dinner is as quiet as the last three nights have been, and Ilya again heads up to her room when she's done eating.

>>33756735>Day 5- MorningI yawn, pulling myself out of bed. My uniform is laid out, and I quickly dress in it, noting the absence of marks from the attack on Thursday night. Heading downstairs, I eat a quick breakfast, waving goodbye to Sella and Liz as I head out the door with my bag and lunch. I climb onto my bike and getting moving as quickly as possible. ...Arriving at the high-school, I lock up my transport and head in to homeroom. !!Not even a day after a conversation regarding her, Rin Tohsaka is back in class, seated primly, next to the window, one row over from mine. She gives me an appraising look as I sit down, slinging my bag under my seat, but before I can speak to her, our teacher comes in a little early, looking his usual grim self. "Class. We will be having a foreign exchange student for the next few months." He says, adjusting his glasses as murmurs begin to circulate the room. Tohsaka sighs, and I glance over to see her rubbing her face in exasperation. >Wait for the exchange student to show up- better to make a good first impression.>Start gossiping with the others while we wait>Ask Tohsaka if she knows anything>Write in
>>33756949>ask Tohsaka if she's the exchange student
>>33756911this is true, that could very well happen as well.or something even worse could happen, we could end up by taking down one of the prisma cards by ourselves and taking the card not realizing the sheer shitstorm that will drag in.

>>33757070I don't think she has, actually.One of the homunculi said something about not telling Illya about magic because she was normal.We are firmly off the rails.
>>33757153Liz and Sella didn't know about Illya's exploits in the original Prismaverse, either, you know.
>>33757181Yeah, but I think the homunculus in question was actually Iri.
Rolled 7>>33756949>Ask Tohsaka if she knows anything
>>33757222Iri also didn't know magic was involved in Illya's early troubles in Prismaverse, just that her daughter was going through a rough patch of growing up. Plus, Iri (if it was her, since I can't recall right now) could have lied for our own good, since we're a blockhead and might have blabbed by accident.
>>33757339this.Shirou is fairly dense and tends not to think on long term ramifications when it comes to consequences so him blabbing doesn't sound that out of the way.In addition nobody even knew about anything to do with Illya's shenanigans until the second part when Kuro showed up and causing all kinds of mischief.therefore its safe to assume at least as of this moment, if illya was currently doing her magical girl shenanigans, people probably won't figure it out till later when Kuro shows up and begins to screw with Illya's life royally.
>Wait for the exchange student to show up- better to make a good first impression.
>Ask Tohsaka"...Tohsaka." I ask in a whisper, leaning over. "Do you know the new student?" She nods near imperceptibly. "She was at the school I was attending in England, Emiya." She hisses back. "I wouldn't dare say anything bad about her, but we certainly had our differences." I nod. If the perfect student Rin doesn't get along with her, she must certainly be-There's a cough, and I look up. It seems like our teacher already brought in the new student, and is letting her have a chance to start. She's familiar looking, somehow- perhaps "Greetings, commoners!" Her tone is brash, prideful, and 'elite'. "I, Luviagelita Edelfelt, once more grace this city with my presence!" "Now, I shall take my rightful place, at the center of the room!" She continues, heading towards-The empty seat to my right. Putting me in between her and Rin. ... I brace myself for a harsh day as she takes her seat, before- Smiling at me charmingly? "Hello there." She says, and I can feel a strong glare to my left. "I suppose I should ask your name if I'm going to be sitting next to you for several months. You are?"

>Politeness"Ah, I'm Shirou Emiya." I say with a brilliant smile. "A pleasure to meet you."I can feel a death glare at the back of my head, and stares from my male classmates, half in awe and half terrified. Luvia seems happy with the response, smiling, then turning to face the teacher as I rotate my head and give Tohsaka a blank look, enduring the glare from hell. ....The classroom is silent for a few minutes, before our teacher drops a book on his desk with a thunk, causing us to all look at him in panic."Now, with that out of the way, turn to page forty seven of your book." He says, adjusting his glasses so they gleam. "We have two days of work to catch up on, after all."I sigh, pulling out my text book and bracing for the lecture, death glares being fired at and over me the entire time. ...The peaceful reprieve of lunch appears, and I bolt from my seat, dragging my bag with me.

>Archery dojoI slip through the halls, and out towards the sports buildings. The archery dojo should be relatively quiet, and neither of them would think to look for me there. Pulling the door closed behind me as I step in, I'm greeted with a quiet gasp. ...Sakura Matou seems to have had a similar idea, and is sitting on one of the benches, bento open and on her lap."Uh... Hey." I say, giving her a small wave. "I just thought I'd get clear of the argument going on in my classroom." She seems a little startled, and I shift uncomfortably. "If you don't want me to eat here, though, I can-""No, no! It's fine!" She says, waving her arms. "I was just surprised." I nod, heading to another of the benches and taking out my own lunch and starting to eat. ....>Make some conversation?

"Sorry for that, then." I wince. She gets a surprised expression, and waves again. "No, no... It's... other people. I don't mind if you join me again." She says, expression turning soft. ...Girls. I shake my head after a second, heading over to the archery equipment. "Man... I haven't used one of these bows in... Forever." I say, picking one up, and finding one of the quivers of arrows. "...Sakura, will Ayako mind if I take a few shots?" I ask, checking the string. "She'll be happy you're considering coming back." Sakura nods. ....I look at the range. The targets are in a row, and I can visualize a path to each... >Archery! 20! Drawing and shooting as quickly as I can, I strike three bullseyes precisely, with enough force to pierce through, arrows embedding themselves deep in the targets, probably to the wood easels. I hear a gasp from Sakura, and go to put away the equipment I borrowed. She seems stunned, but as I start to retrieve the arrows, speaks up."Please... Leave them. I think Ayako would like to see this." She says, and I glance back to her. Her expression is one of pure awe...."Alright." I shake my head."Tell her that it was fun, and I'm still considering rejoining, if she needs me."Sakura nods, and I pick up my empty lunchbox and bag, heading back to my classroom. ...Aside from the glares across me, the rest of the day is relatively pleasant, my accuracy remaining with me leaving me in a good mood.

For being rivals, they seem fairly buddy-buddy....I hear feet running behind me, and a glance over my shoulder shows Ayako running towards me from the archery range, expression a mixture of awe, anger, and hope, Sakura not far behind.Looking forwards again, I can catch sight of Ayaka, kendo bag slung over her shoulder, walking in the direction of a park I'm familiar with....
