"Let's go ahead and do it now." I tell her after a moments consideration. "Before something else crazy happens to stop us.""Yeah, been kinda non-stop around here." Rider comments as we make the short walk back to my room."Maybe it's just the stress getting to me, but this day feels like it's been going forever." I shake my head, sighing. "Thanks for the save back there.""Eh." she responds with a shrug as she sits down. "Anything last minute you wanted to ask or know about this? Last minute mental preparations? Or are we just going straight into it?"[ ] Let's do it.[ ] Actually- (Insert question/action).
AC GUY IS ALIVE?![X] Let's do it.

Hallelujah, FSA is back. If you'll excuse me I'm going to put on three different versions of EMIYA at once in celebration. Who wants to bet on what disaster stops AC-Guy from running? Another fire? Emergency phone call?

Threadly reminder that the updated Ebook can be found at http://pastebin.com/kbGzcbDbI'm going to go reread the last thread to remind myself what happened.>>26123335The Router is set on fire.
>>26123335Then AC-Guy Quest begins:You are AC-Guy, and Kirei sucks. Though only moments ago you were in the process of running a session of Fate/Stay Again, it seems like you'll have to call it a night early, as something in your computer has caught fire. Along with your chair. Perhaps these problems stem from the small spacecraft that has punched through your ceiling?
>Sorry about the delay, apparently only one computer can post in this thread for some fucking reason, and I was called away to help with groceries.>Writing resumes shortly.
I shake my head. "Let's get right into it.""Alright." She says, sitting down and folding her legs beneath herself. She gestures me to lay don so my head is in her lap staring at the ceiling, as she gently grips the sides of my face. "Try and relax.""I am relaxed.""No you aren't. I can feel your nervousness and desire to make a stupid joke." She frowns slightly. "Just take a deep breath."[DC12 Mellow Check]

I close my eyes, sighing. After a few moments, I ask her. "Is it working?""You tell me." She responds, and I open my eyes to see her standing there."Oh, hey. Is this the dream?" I ask, looking around. I see people walking around a small neighborhood, kids playing and dogs barking."Not quite. You were really resisting going into your normal dream, so this is apparently before that." She explains, looking around. "Why is everything so blurry is the question.""I don't really remember it." I answer, looking around. "I'm not sure if this is even real or just a sort of image I've painted as a placeholder for what should be here.""You really don't remember?" Rider asks surprised."Well, no. I don't really remember anything from before the fire."Rider stares into the distance for a few moments, before looking to me concerned. "... Shirou, what exactly is the dream I was going to help you with?""Almost every night, I relive what happened during the fire." I explain, walking down the road and glancing around. "Apparently there's a few details I've either been ignoring or suppressing that Saber noticed because of the bond we had.""So you wanted me to help you.... rip open a gigantic emotional wound by forcibly reliving what was apparently the worst day of your life?" Rider asks, shocked.".... Yes?" I answer cautiously, looking back. She hasn't moved from the place where we started."And you didn't think to TELL me about this before we started?">Floor is open.
>>26123972Meet her eyes."Why would I ask for your help if it was something mundane?"
>>26123972"I trust you to keep my boogie-men in check"
>>26123972"What were you expecting, gay sex with Issei?"
>>26123988>Meet her eyesWait, no, that's stupid. Don't do that.
>>26124019Actually, in dreamland that would be totally safe.I mean, it's not her REAL eyes, technically. We should take that blindfold off her and actually look her in the eye for once.
>>26123972"No, I chose not to because you'd react exactly like this. Yes, it's going to be painful, but if there's something in my memories that has to do with the war then we have to find it."Besides, any dream where you're with me is a good one."
>>26123972"In hindsight... that was kind of shitty of me, sorry. I'm still working on the whole 'thinking about my own well-being' thing. But I may have witnessed the end of the last War, so the missing bits might be important. Trust me, I'm not doing this just for kicks."
>>26124050It states in FSN that to look upon her in anyway, whether with your physical eyes or your mind's eye is to be cursed all the same.Best not to try.
>>26124011>>26124003Seconding some combination of these two options.
>>26124066This. We should go with this.
>>26123972"No, because you'd be upset and concerned and try tot talk me out of it.And because it's you, you may actually succeed.This is possibly very, very relevant to the war and we need to know about it, no matter what."
>>26124195> This is possibly very, very relevant to the war and we need to know about it, no matter what."Yes, this.
>>26124195Possible edit:>remove her blindfold, stare her in the eye."Besides, it's nothing I haven't done a thousand times before. I think it'll be easier with someone beside me."
>>26124244See >>26124128Do we really want Rider to make us rock-hard in our dreams?
Or we could play dense Shirou and ask why is she concerned. Worst day in my life? NBD.
And some cockface cocked up the archive.
>>26124638With his face.
>>26124195>>26124244"Besides, I've done this at least a thousand times. It's not really a big deal. But I think it'll be easier with someone beside me."
>>26124066This or >>26124570this
>>26124708I think some combination would be best. Serious and thoughtful, but somehow kind of dissonant with how terrible it all is. When (terrible eldritch fire burns down everything and everyone you love) lightning strikes more than a thousand times, it kind of gets old after a while.
>>26124638Nothing we can do about it right now. Continue anyway, next thread we link to that one in the archives.Has anyone contacted the guy who maintains sup/tg/ about this yet and fixing the previous threads that the cockface defaced?
>Why hello there, Mr Electrical fire. Been a while since you decided to drop by. It's the active thread, isn't it? That's why you visited?Heh. Ha.AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAC-Guy, go apologize to whatever god you pissed off already.
>>26124844"A F/SA thread? Not on my watch!"
>>26124763Shot him a line. Who knows if anything will come out of it, but keep fingers crossed.>>26124844CALLED IT! >>26123335Excuse me while the house cleans up.
>>26124472That rule can't be 100% set in stone *drumroll* because she had those glasses and stuff.There are clearly ways around that rule, even in canon. Canon we left behind before AC-Guy even started running.
>>26124844No Gods or Kings. Only Man.
>>26124878Mystic Eye Killer glasses
>>26124878The glasses were mystic eye killers.Their whole purpose was to make seeing her eyes safe.Without those, we're stuffed.
>>26124878Mystic eye killer glasses courtesy of Red.
>>26124878Well, the glasses were Mystic Eye Killers strongly implied to come from Touko, who make Shiki's glasses.
>>26123335>three different versions of EMIYAAs soon as I get the last song from a friend of mine, REMIYAX v5 will be out, and I'm tempted to debut it in one of these threads because God knows AC-Guy deserves it.And despite my best efforts he won't set up an Amazon wish list so that we can pay him back for all his hard work by, say, buying a new router.
Has AC-Guy abandoned us?
>>26124893The point stands.>>26124896As far as I know, there's no precedent for someone looking at her in a dream without her mask/glasses.Hell, she got killed in the legend because a dude used a mirror instead of looking at her directly.>>26124921I do believe every item on his Steam wishlist is currently on sale, actually.
>>26124938No, just another fire.You know, the usual.
>>26124946Give me his Steam name, quickly, and I'll make it so.
>>26124938Check the twitter, the gods are angry at him.
>>26124938He never abandons us. He gets... Taken!By misfortune and circumstance
>>26124938God abandoned AC-Guy.>>26124921Given his history it's no surprise he's leery about giving out any means to contact him besides the Twitter. Just buy his game when/if he ever does it.
>>26124954It's literally 'AC-Guy'. I could link you the account, but I think it's private. And he doesn't accept friend requests unless he kinda has some idea who you are, so you should mention that in said request.
>>26124988Yeah, I just found it. Thanks.
What If...what if AC-Guy's life is perfectly normal and he has created an elaborate miserable online persona for himself because reasons.
>>26125022God.God I wish that were the case.If anything, he downplays that shit. I really couldn't say more without going somewhere rather personal..... but Jesus Christ. he has it bad. Not as bad as some random starving disease ridden bastard in Africa or something, but still.
Aaaand someone needs to get in touch with the guy who runs sup/tg/, because this thread has been troll-archived.
>>26125104We know. Been done.
>>26124946Actually... there is circumstantial evidence for whether her Mystic eyes work in dreams.In FHA, during the threesome dream, Rider always has her glasses on. That's not direct evidence of her eyes working or not in dreams but it does give credence to the idea that you do not look at her eyes. Perseus got away with it because he was focusing on looking at her reflection and not her. I believe there are other reasons in play since the Shield was a Noble Phantasm but I suppose that will have to suffice.
>>26125022I don't think you can just make up the kind of stuff that happens to him.
>>26125091Its ok. I know how to cheer him up. And maybe kill him. Hopefully he's built up a resistance to this pic, but if not sorry in advance for offing the QM
While AC-Guy's gone, who wants to writefag some Carnival Phantasm? I would, but I'm exhausted.
>>26124844Even my old old old apartment doesn't give me -this- much wretched trouble. What the fuck is he doing to be causing shit like this all the time?
>>26125132"A Series of Unfortunate Events" suggests that you can make that kind of stuff up. On the other hand, three internet non-people on 4chan with names say that it's real, so I'm willing to accept the explanations because they amuse me.>>26125163Oh fuck, I've been reading the ideas. Is it wrong that the one that made me laugh the hardest was "Shinji was framed for everything"?
>>26125203Maybe he was Hitler in a past life?
>>26125163Be best if we were to pastebin and link it, rather than putting it in the thread itself. Literally posting walls of what amounts to fan-fiction in a spinoff quest thing that's basically insane fanfiction itself.That honestly feels like crossing a line to me.
>>26125229"AC-Guy was Hitler in a past life."If whoever manages sup/tg changes our archive around, have him describe this thread that way.
>>26125229Not Judas Iscariot?>>26125235How about we turn this into a Servant creation thread? It's been months since the last one.I'll start: Prince Rama from the Ramayana. Probably a Lancer, actually. Divinity through the roof, and what else?
>>26124946>>26124921Honestly, with AC-Guys luck, amazon wishlist is going to end up having him confused with someone else and recieving mailbombs or anthrax or something.
>>26125210No, but the one that got me was 'All Servants are now replaced by Macho Man Randy Savage'.Him as Berserker made me giggle. Him as Every Servant made me laugh my ass off. Mostly because I can't decide if it means that there's 7-9 copies of him running around, or a single hyper-competent Version managing to fool everyone into thinking he's all the servants.I like the second one more, because the linked mental image is one of the 'real' servants watching from a distance, because If I'm remembering correctly, Randy savage was still alive when this shit was going down in Canon.
>AC-Guy has horrible, horrible luck and has issues with fireYou now realize AC-Guy is Shirou and Archer has E-ranked luck.
>>26126154>Fate quest being written by an alt-universe version of ShirouTruly the Kaleidoscope is a dark and terrible thing.On the bright side, we can blame Zelretch.
>>26126269You can always blame Zelretch
>>26123725Don't worry.You might meet Moot. He's already BFF with the FBI after all the shit that went down on 4chan.
>>26125210>On the other hand, three internet non-people on 4chan with names say that it's real, so I'm willing to accept the explanations because they amuse me.The hilarious thing is that it seems like the Joker Quest dude sometimes has similar problems. Just to a far more manageable extent.
Well. At least I didn't miss much.
>>26129990No kidding.So are we going to try to continue, or should we just let the thread die?
>>26130761Bump every time it gets to page 5, until ACGuy comes back.
