There’s no better time to practice the dying art of magecraft than in broad daylight in a public space. In a secluded spot that’s only a few paces off a park path, a hooded figure stands before a magic circle, comparing it to the one on their phone.“It looks kinda right. Ehn, close enough. What do I have to say again?”A minute more of fumbling, and then magus clears their throat. Chanted are lines easily one could mistake as delusions of grandeur. Energy swells in the air as the ritual nears completion. Any interruption now would be disastrous. The magus, completely ignorant to this, continues the incantation, oblivious to the couple who are watching from afar.“What’s that person doing? It’s creeping me out,” one of them says.“Don’t look, just keep walking,” the other replies.Right as they hurry off, the magus finishes the last line of the ritual. No one else is there to see the magic circle radiate a beautiful light, one that is quickly devoured by a looming shadow. The magus begins to maniacally laugh as the whirlwind of magical energy takes shape. Spilling forth, the growing grimly aura becomes suffocating, withering the grass, trees, and shrubs all around. The vessel is filled, and it stands before the magus. It’s a fearsome beast, one that would strike fear to any who learns of its True Name. Opening its mouth, it begins to speak.“Hi, hi, hi!! I’m Lancer, answering your summons!” she says in a bubbly voice, “Nice to meet you!”[1/3]
>>2438236Earlier...Your name is Sleep, all that is good in life. A sharp pain in your head later, and you concede that you’re actually Shuu Jinkou. Groggily, you rub your eyes.“How many times do I have to tell you to stop sleeping in class?” your teacher, Itsuka, asks you. “Did you come here to learn or take a nap?” There’s a few snickers and giggles from the class.You think about how to reply, but then you realize the energy’s not worth it. You simply reply, “Sorry.” Wearing a disappointed expression, he says nothing and turns around, and you see that your friend seated in front of you, Kyou Kanaisho, was the one that bumped his notebook on your head. He whispers, “Stayed up last night playing the new Beast Chaser game?”With a yawn, you answer, “Yeah, I lost track of time again.”Air blows out of his nose slightly harder than usual. “Come on, man.”The bell rings, signaling the end of school. The student beside you, Itsumo Osananajimi, sighs loudly. “You’ve gotten good timing your naps.” As she packs up, she asks, you, “Are you going home?”[2/3]
>>2438236You nod. “I don’t have any clubs, so--”“What are you saying?” Kyou interrupts, “You’re in the same club as I am!”“...Am I?” you say, confused.“You two are in one?” Itsumo asks.“Yeah, the Going-Home Club,” he answers, beaming. He’s finding it way more amusing than both you and Itsumo combined.Itsumo, pretending as if Kyou didn’t exist, says to you, “You should really join something.” She puts the last of her things in her bag, and then she says, “Oh, I know. Why don’t you come by the Archery Club today?”You ask, “You’re in that, right?”She nods, “You should check it out; it’ll be fun. And if you join, at least you’ll know someone there already.” She looks away for that last part, pretending to be distracted by something. Sure, why not? Maybe not archery. Stay in the Going-Home Club. Write-in.
>>2438249 Sure, why not?Fucking hype
>>2438249 Sure, why not?Howdy Hopeless!>>2438236>“Hi, hi, hi!! I’m Lancer, answering your summons!” she says in a bubbly voice, “Nice to meet you!”Oh dear god is that Liz?
>>2438249 Sure, why not?
>>2438283I think Lancer is a fitting companion for us, given our consistently horrible luck.
>>2438255>>2438278>>2438283Sure why not?WritingI'm a bit rusty so no telling how things go
>>2438249Also art is fucking great (even if they will spiral downward) Itsumo is cute as hell and already my waifu. 10/10 best girl. >>2438293Are Lancers known for their bad luck or something? I don't really know anything about Fate
>>2438323The meme about Lancers is that all their stats are pretty great, but they have dismal luck (which is also an actual stat) and pretty much always end up losing as a result of circumstances outside heir control.
>>2438323Servants have stats, and it's kind of a running joke in the series that Lancers tend to have really low ranks in it. That's why even though a spirit like Cu Cuhllain, who's basically Irish hercules, always ends up losing the Holy Grail war. Funnily enough, when he was summoned as a Caster in Fate Grand Order, his luck stat went up from E to D and he ended up kicking a lot of servants asses.
“Sure, why not?” you say. “Is there practice today?”“Yeah! That’s why I brought it up,” she replies, “You won’t regret it, trust me!”Kyou says to Itsumo, “Hey, what about me?! I’m not invited?”She pouts, “No, go away. You said you hated archery, didn’t you?” “Heh, did I say that?” he sheepishly replies.When you walk out the classroom, you wave goodbye to Kyou as he goes in a different direction. You walk beside Itsumo as you follow her lead to the school’s archery range.As Itsumo opens the door, she shyly laughs as she says, “I’m not that good, I’m warning you right now.”“And I never touched one in my life,” you reply.[1/2]
>>2438347>>2438350Oh ok thanks for the spoon feeding anons (I guarantee this won't be the last time I need it). Then it makes sense why NotKats would have a Lancer. Also servants can be reborn as more than 1 thing? I thought they could only be one thing something like Cu Cuhllain can only be a Lancer and whenever he's summoned it'll be as a Lancer for example >>2438382I can already feel it. Kyou is gonna be just as cucked as Sorai
>>2438434It depends on the servant, but some qualify for multiple classes and can be potentially summoned into any of them.One example is Cu, who qualifies for Lancer, Caster, and maybe Berserker (not 100% sure on that one since the circumstances of his Berserker summon were weird. Another is Hercules who qualifies as literally any standard class besides Caster.
>>2438382There’s only a handful people there when you get there. Everyone else probably hasn’t arrived yet. You’re quickly introduced to the club captain, who welcomes you warmly.Itsumo says, “Oh, there’s another new member today?”“Yup.” The club captain points to a girl who is down the range.She releases the arrow that she was holding onto, and the bow sends it flying forward and directly into the target.Itsumo quietly says in awe, “Wow, she’s good.”The club captain tells you with a smile, “Stick around. We could never have enough members.”Itsumo drags you by the arm. “Come on, I’ll show you how to do it too.” As you walk by, you watch as the other club members with their bows. It seems alright, you guess.After Itsumo throws a bunch of equipment at you, you find yourself standing next to the other new member. Itsumo gives you a bunch of instructions, and you try to follow them as best as you can. The bow shakes in your hands as you draw the string, and when you let go, the arrow lands nowhere near the target.The new member laughs. “Wow, that’s bad. I don’t think you have a talent for this at all.”Itsumo frowns. “Hey, don’t be rude.”Well, she isn’t wrong.Tell her to shut up.Ignore her and make the next shot count.Write-in.
>>2438483Well, she isn’t wrong.It's better if you get used to failure now if PAQ was anything to go off of...

“Captain, is it alright if I fire a few more?”The club captain replies, “Sure, go ahead. Have fun.”With that, you face the other end of the range again. You’ll prove her wrong! You draw the bow again, this time you actually pay attention to what Itsumo’s telling you.“Move your elbow a little...” she says, nudging it in the correct position.Only staring at the spot you plan on hitting, you release. The arrow zips through the air, striking almost close to the center and landing right on the border between the innermost circle and the ring that surrounds it. Itsumo cheers, “Nice shot, Shuu! You’re pretty good at this.”The other girl scoffs. “That was just luck.” Then, this time with a smile, she says, “It was a nice shot, still.”Realizing she’s not trying to antagonize you, you reply, “I’m Shuu.”“Uh,” she says, as if caught by surprised. “I’m... Cu. Yeah, Cu.”What an odd name. You don’t say anything though. Itsumo and Cu roughly introduce themselves to each other. You couldn’t catch what they say, since a sudden flash of pain on your hand makes you flinch.“Gah! Did I cut myself?” you mumble. On the back of your hand is a single red mark. It looks bad. “This isn’t even on the same side as the arrow, what the hell?”Itsumo says to you, “What’s wrong?”[1/2]
>>2438692Gonna hope that's not Cu Chulainn.
>>2438692Cu grins. “Oh, what’s that? Did you hurt yourself?”“Huh?” you say, “No, this is... a papercut or something.”“Uh huh,” she replies. Suddenly, she points to some behind you. She shouts, “What’s that?!”It wasn’t your attention that was drawn, it was everyone’s. Right as you’re turned around, a large explosion erupts from beside you. You’re thrown to the ground. Your ears ring, but you can hear shouting and screaming. Groaning as you get up, you look around, but all you see is smoke dyed the color pink.“Itsumo...?” you say, “Itsumo, where are you? What happened?”You feel something. You’re not sure if it’s your instinct or simply a rushing wind, but you never felt the sense of death before in your life. Leaping out of the way, you cover your face before another the ground where you stood explodes.“Tch.” A figure emerges from the clouds of smoke. You make out Cu’s voice before her face. “Stop moving. You’re making this harder for yourself.”Her school uniforms now gone, and in its place is a large piece of cloth draped over her body. She twirls a bow in one hand--it looks completely different than the one from the archery club. It doesn’t even have a string.She points it at you. She brings a hand where the string would be, and there’s a flash of light as an arrow materializes. “Can you just lie quietly and die? ‘Kay, thanks.” Lie there quietly and die. Try to run out of the classroom. Use the smoke to your advantage and try to tackle her. Write-in.

You’re trembling a little from being in the same room as this school shooter/bomber, but you need to muster up all the courage if you don’t want to die. You dodge out of the way just as the arrow hits where you once were. Dirt and splinters fly out as the floor is shredded.“Can I get a last wish fulfilled here or something?" you say.”“Ha!” she says, “If you want a wish, you’d have a better chance getting the grail.”“The what?” you say, confused.“Oh boy, you’re in way over your head. I feel bad for you, really; seriously, how can someone be so unlucky?” She draws the bow again with another magic arrow.“Then you can at least tell me what’s going on!” you shout. Your eyes scan the room, trying to make out Itsumo. It’s pointless. You can’t see anyone. Either she’s already fled, unconscious, or worse. You don’t have time to worry about anyone else right now, because you’re about to die. Instead, you employ the oldest trick in the book. Pointing behind her, you say, “Itsumo, don’t!”“Huh?” she says, turning around. She blinks, and then she turns around. “Wow, seriously--”You rush at her, slamming your shoulder into her tiny frame. Except she barely budges, your momentum barely carrying through. You say, “God damn, you’re heavy.”She scowls, “’Kay, I’ll make this hurt then.” She shoves you back, and with both hands on her bow, she swings it like a baseball bat at your chest. You wheeze as your lungs are forcibly emptied, and you are thrown back. You don’t feel the floor. Instead, you hit a door and go right through it.[1/2]
>>2438931Pain shoots through your body as you try to get up. You hear a voice, one that doesn’t belong to Cu.“What the hell is this? What is this form?” she says. Your vision slowly comes back to you, and when you sit up, you see a strange rabbit girl in front of you. With a ridiculously oversized hammer in on hand, she towers over you. “Rider-class Servant, responding to your call.”“W-watch out!” you say. Twirling her weapon as if it weighed nothing at all, she spun around, striking the magical arrow mid-air with it. You cover your eyes as the shockwave reaches you. The person in front of you, however, barely seems to be phased.With her back facing you, she asks you, “Are you my master?” “W-What the hell are you wearing?” “...A maid?” “If someone could tell me what’s going on that’d be great.” “Yes? Probably?” Write-in.
>>2439024> “...A maid?”

After a long second, you manage to get out the words: “...A maid?”“No, not a maid! A Servant! You know, with a capital ‘S’!” she says, turning her head so she can face you. “There’s a big difference!”“Sorry!” you say, taken aback by her defensiveness.“Let me ask you again. Are you my Master?”“Yes? Probably?” you say, “I don’t know what any of this means--”“No wonder I’m not getting any magical energy from you.” She heavily sighs. A barrage of arrows flies at her, and she deflects them all. She comes back out very lightly wounded, and she dashes forward. With a wide arc, the hammer sweeps at Cu and clears away the smoke at the same time.Cu yelps, “Whoa, watch where you’re swinging that thing!”“Archer, is it?” Rider says, chasing after. With each leap, you could tell she’s faster. “So slow!”“Gh!” Archer blocks the next blow with her bow, and the blow knocks her backwards through the wall.Rider hesitates for a moment. “Oh shoot, we’re in public, aren’t we?”When you’re finally able to stand up get walk out of the storage room, you see the strange “Servant” standing at the rubble. As the smoke clears, you see that there’s no one left in the range. There’s a loud commotion outside, but you barely hear it with your ears ringing.She lowers her hammer onto the floor. She says loudly, “I can’t believe you.”“What did I do?” you say, taking a step back. Did you do something to anger her? Considering how she held her own against that archer, you’re feeling not too great about your current standing right now.Rider replies, “At this rate, I’ll disappear before night’s even over. I can’t believe I was summoned just to lose.”“What are you even saying?” you reply. You take a glance around. “Ah, damn it! Where’s Itsumo?”She ignores you. “I need to chase after Archer. Come with me.”“Huh? Why?” you ask.Frowning, she replies, “Because if you’re in danger, I’m in danger.”You don’t really get it, but... You follow her. You can’t. You need to find Itsumo. There’s a commotion and people might be hurt. You can’t leave like this. Write-in.
Gonna pause here for an hour to get food in me, sorry about that. I'll be back in a bit to run for the rest of my day.

Boy, I hope we don’t find out later that Itsumo is Cupid’s master and she lured us to the archery club because it would be easier to have Cupid execute us with a bow there.

You want to follow the rabbit. You’re sure you can look for Itsumo after you’re safe and sound... but...“I can’t,” you reply, “I need to find Itsumo.” And the fact that she’s refusing to explain anything is getting aggravating. It’s hard to trust her judgement like this.Rider makes a sound that’s something between a sigh and a laugh. “Are you serious? Why don’t I just throw you over my shoulders and carry you off?”“You wouldn’t!” you say.“I wouldn’t, but I really want to,” she replies, “Oh whatever. Even if you die, it’s not like I disappear all much faster.”Relieved, you tell her, “You sure are demanding for a maid.”“You what.” Something snaps.You make a break for it. “I was joking!”“Come back here!” she says, reaching out to grab you. You hopped through the hole that Cu made when she was smashed into it, and you pull out your phone you see Rider give up and jump away.She shouts, “Don’t die on me!”“I won’t!” you shout back. You call Itsumo.It rings...And rings...And...“Hello?” she replies.“Where are you?” you say.“I... uh...” she mumbles, “The school entrance, I think? Shuu, are you okay?”“That’s my question!” you reply, “I’m fine, I think.”“I--Aaah!” Her phone audibly drops to the floor, and you waste no time ending the call and running to where she said she was.Eventually, you see it.A crowd of people trying to scramble away, and Itsumo on the ground, a bow in her hand. Arrows are scattered all over. Pieces of metal that vaguely resemble a phone lie beside her. A short distance away from her is something snarling and growling. “GRRAAAHHHH!” It cries out, raising its weapon into the air. You can’t quite see what’s happening, but it looks like they’re about to attack! Tackle the beast. Tackle Itsumo out of the way. Stop tackling things and try to distract it instead. Write-in.

How else would you explain Itsumo (if that is even her REAL name) and the rest of the archery club spontaneously disappearing from the location right when Cu attacked us in public - something which, I should note, Rider has implied is also forbidden in this War - except that it was all a ruse? That Itsumo had known beforehand the attack was coming, and that the archery club members were all under her spell - or otherwise illusory images, hence not involving any witnesses - to begin with?I mean, what kind of a last name is 'Osananajimi' anyway? Clearly a fake one; it sounds about as plausible as someone being literally named 'Protagonist', or a Master in a Grail War suddenly gaining his Command Seals right in the presence of an enemy Servant. Completely and utterly ridiculous.

A part of you tells you to tackle it, but that’s probably not a good idea given what just happened. Pushing through the already dispersing crowd, you wave your hands and shout. “Hey, over here you--”You see that the beast is actually one of your classmates. You don’t remember her name, but you know her face. In her hands is a foldable steel wrestling chair that she’s swinging around.“GRRR, GRAAAAAAAAAAA!!” she screams, turning to you. She charges at you, and it’s about then that you realize you didn’t think this through enough.You take a step back as she swings, and the sheer wind pressure from it almost knocks you off balance. You say, “What’s wrong with you?!”Suddenly, a plain, nonmagical arrow comes from behind, hitting the lunatic in the back. She reaches behind her and rips it out, the arrowtip not stained with even a drop of blood. True, it’s a practice arrow, but you saw it go in!Itsumo, with a pained expression, points her bow at your classmate. Uh oh.>Roll 1d100s, best of three.

InterludeOut of breath, Archer descends in front of a man who doesn’t seem to be the least bit concerned.He says, “You’re done already? That was quick.”“No, this is bad,” she says, grimacing. “I don’t know why, but the kid’s servant is way too strong!”“You’re so useless, you know that?” the man sighs.Rider sudden drops down, a good distance away. She has her hammer ready. “So, you must be Archer’s Master.”Archer draws her bow. “Get back!”The man just raises his right hand. On it is a single red mark. He says, “I looked it up while you were gone. This thing is just a ball of mana right?”“You can’t be thinking...!” Archer says.“Yeah, I can let you use your super special move or something, right?”“It’s called a Noble Phantasm!” she says, “Are you sure? What if--”Hearing this, Rider wastes no time leaping forward.The Command Spell on his hand lights up. “Do it.”Rider stops in her tracks, realizing she won’t make it in time. Light surrounds Archer, and she brings her bow up.She says, “Eat this--Cupid’s Arrow!”
>>2439724God damn it it's really weird to see you without your trip. I imgaine all this team stuff is gonna be really confusing to people who read this in the future
>>2439754HAH I TOLD YOU IT WASN'T ITSUMO'S YOU NON BELIEVERS IT'S A CUPID QUEST REFERENCE
>>2439754Oh, it's Lucifer!
>>2439790We should’ve trusted you: cute can’t possibly be evil.
It’s as if something else took hold of you for a second. In a trance, you rely on instinct along, dodging blow after blow.Side-stepping in the last moment, an arrow misses you just barely and lands right into your classmate’s right eye when she turns around. Whatever’s possessed her was surprised by the hit, and she flinches and cries out. “GAH!” She wildly swings around before she brightens up and pulls it out without leaving a wound behind.That’s definitely a Servant-thing for sure. When the Servant finally collects herself, you’re already by Itsumo’s side.You quickly ask, “How’s your arm?”“It’s fine. What on earth is going on?!” she asks.“Your guess is as good as mine,” you reply. Everyone else has already fled, only a few curious onlookers bravely watching from a distance. “My hand is killing me,” she mumbles. You look down, and you see a red mark on it too. “GGRRRR!!” the servant snarls. It winds itself back, and it kicks off the ground with insane speed. For a moment, you thought you were going to die.A flutter of cloth, and a cloaked man intercepts. They clash, and after a moment, they break apart. He says, clearly Itsumo, “Saber, at your call. Orders?”“I-uh... what?!” she says. She turns to you, “Huh?!”You look at him. That’s clearly not a saber in his hand. It’s not even close to a sword. You are equally as confused. Flee. Saber can take that Servant on. Saber should distract her while you and Itsumo run away. Write-in.

I'd need a better look at Berserker, but are the Servants based on holidays?Archer = Cupid/ValentinesRider = Easter Bunny?Saber = Santa?
>>2439866> Saber should distract her while you and Itsumo run away.The Saber class really is full of Sabers!
cool, now we have reason to betray her in the future.
>>2439905They're based off of characters from Hopeless' previous quests.Rider - PAQCupid - Cupid QuestBerserker - Oni-chan Slayer Quest>>2439911SHUT UP!
>>2439932Yeah, I know that they are characters from the previous quests, I was just wondering if they've been modified to fit something that makes sense as a Servant rather than directly being those characters.

>>2439986...Dammit, that missing trip is really confusing.
>>2439986I-I feel like the b-biggest baka ever
You’re about to say something when Itsumo answers. “Distract her!” She grabs your hand and pulls you off before you can even say anything.“Understood,” Saber replies. To the other Servant, he says, “I’m afraid you won’t be getting past me.”You hear the sounds of “sword” crashing against steel chair as you Itsumo pulls you back into the school. “Where are we going?” you say.“I don’t know!” she says.Another explosion on the other side of the school rocks the building before the two of you stop. Itsumo catches her breath as she sits down on the stairs to the second floor.“What are you two still doing here?” a voice asks. Itsumo jumps up, and you and her look to see it came from your teacher, Itsuka. There’s a mark on his hand.“There’s fighting outside!” Itsumo answers, “Please tell me you know what’s going on.”“All I know is that it’s not safe to be here,” he replies, “I’ll guide you out, follow me!” Follow him. Don’t. Write-in.
>>2440024 Don’t.>>2439986I ever mention I hate the first of April?
>>2440024 Don’t.Nah, he’s probably Berserker’s master or something. Why is he still in here after all the explosions? Suspicious.

>>2440024 Don’t. Ask who his servant is.
>>2440024> Don’t.If he's explicitly acting as if he doesn't know what's going on, we can't trust his judgement to be in our favor either. Even if he isn't pretending, he could get us fucked up due to lack of knowledge.

Itsuka passes you and walks down the stairs. Itsumo takes a step forward, but you grab her arm.You shake your head. She stares at you, confused.Your teacher realizes that you’re not moving. He turns around, and he asks, “What are you doing?”“Who’s your Servant?” you say.Itsumo takes a step back. “Servant...?”Itsuka shrugs, “What are you talking about? We can’t stay here forever. Are you two going to stand there forever?”“If you don’t know what’s going on, then we can’t follow you,” you reply, “Itsumo, let’s go!” You run upwards, and she hesitates for a moment before following you.She asks you, “What’s going on?”“I don’t know, but he might be against us!” you say, “He has one of those servants. There’s one of those red things on his hand!”“Like on me?” she says, glancing at her hand for a moment.There’s a blinding light, and then a bolt of lightning blasts the ceiling. It barely missed you, and you could feel yourself almost singed. It came from the stairs.Itsuka walks up the stairs, and in that angle, you could see a strange tattoo on his chest that’s glowing. He says, “Don’t make this any messier than this has to be. Otherwise, I’ll have to give you two detention.”You mumble, “He’s joking, right?”As you’re running, you see something out the window. It’s Rider, and she’s casually through the entrance. Saber and that other Servant have taken their fight elsewhere. Another explosion rocks the building.Itsumo sees her. She says, “is that your... Servant?”“Yeah, I’ll call her!” you say, about to open a window to shout at her.“No, wait!” Itsumo says, stopping you. “Something’s wrong.”“What do you mean?”“I don’t know. I just have a bad feeling.” Call out to Rider anyways. Hide in a classroom. Run in the direction of the explosions. Write-in.
>>2440218> Run in the direction of the explosions.I have never once heard a singular better idea than this one right here!
>>2440218> Run in the direction of the explosions.
>>2440218> Run in the direction of the explosions."COME, ITSUKA. WALK THE PATH OF EXPLOSIONS WITH ME."
>>2440218 Write-in.>Leave the schoolThis is a place of death and chaos and I want out. Also, if she was hit by “Cupid’s Arrow” she’s probably in love with Lucifer now or something. We can’t trust her at the moment.
>>2440218> Run in the direction of the explosions.Tackle any and all obstacles
>>2440218>Run in the direction of the explosions.>But run backwards, as cool guys don't look at explosions and we're the coolest dude around

“Maybe you’re right,” you say. “Let’s get out of here already!”“There’s the fire escape exit!” she says, already running.“That’s the direction of the explosions!” you say, “Oh, damn it all!” You round the corner just before another lightning bolt blows a giant hole in the wall.“I can’t believe this is happening,” Itsumo says. “Hey, Shuu, I’m dreaming, right? This must be some kind of fever dream,” she says. You pinch her on the cheek mid-run. “Ow! What was that for?”“Well, guess you’re not dreaming.” You pinch yourself just to be sure, running down the small staircase.“This isn’t any time to be joking around!” she replies.You see the bottom of the stairwell. The scene that greets you makes you immediately want to go back up the stairs.There, two people stand there, a rather large amount of craters dotting the area. There’s a giant one in the wall that used to be the locked fire escape door that could only open outwards. That’s one way of opening a lock.One of them says to the other, “Caster, can you stop that? At least make them a little smaller, please?”“My feet hurt.”“We’ve been walking for five minutes!”“I want to go back to the Throne of Heroes,” the Servant moans. “I’m hungry too.” She looks up. “Oh, Masters.” She raises a hand, and you see your life flash before your eyes.The other stops her. “Wait, they’re not magi.” She steps in front of Caster and says, “Hi there, I’m Haku, and this is--”“Yo, I’m Circe.”“Don’t tell them your True Name!” Haku says, practically foaming at the mouth. She quickly composes herself, “You two look confused. Need any help?”Itsumo quickly introduces herself and you, and then she answers, “We’re being chased by our teacher upstairs!”Haku says, “Oh?” She looks at the wall ahead, seemingly through it. “I see him. Sheesh. Alright, I’ll deal with him. Caster, take care of these two, okay?”She replies, “I don’t wanna.”“Just do it!” Hakurei then storms up the stairs.“Hey, Shoe,” Caster says, pointing at you. She must’ve did that on purpose. “Isn’t that your Servant?” She points behind here, and there you see Rider walking up. The rabbit girl waves at you. Caster says, “I sense Archer too. Are you going to say hi?” Can’t be rude. Go to Rider and say hi. Leave it to Caster. Forget Rider. You all need to find Saber. Follow Haku up the stairs. Write-in.
>>2440394 Leave it to Caster.Circe! And rolled together with Hitsujikaze too? Circe is already based on a 2ho, and Haku is obviously based on Hakurei Reimu.
>>2440394 Can’t be rude. Go to Rider and say hi.Let's regroup with our servant now. That might be a good idea
OH GOD DONT TELL ME YAMIGIKO IS THE ASSASSIN WITH HER MIST AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

>>2440394>Leave it to Caster.>>2440453Oh sweet Jesus.Speaking of which.>Kats shows up as the previous war's Archer>Avenger is LeviDO IT HOPELESS
>>2440394> Write-in> Can’t be rude. Wave to Rider and gesture her over to where you are.If Archer's around, we don't want to stray too far from Caster's protection since she probably can defend us better from arrows is the justification I'm giving in character.
>>2440428>>2440477Castaa>>2440433Enter Tiger Dojo>>2440479Give her a waveWriting
>>2440477YOU BETTER DO THIS HOPELESS!!! IF HE'S NOT THE SECRET 7TH SERVANT I'LL CRY
>>2440503A little excited, ehn?
>>2440540The appropriate response was >y-you too
If Archer’s around, then you can’t stray too far from Caster’s protection. Not only that, but you can’t get out what Itsumo had said before.Instead, you wave to her and gesture for her to come over. In case anything goes wrong, you can leave it to Caster.Rider calmly walks over as if nothing was wrong. Itsumo takes a step back. She waves back, and when she’s close enough, she says, “Who’s this?”“Caster,” Circe flatly replies.The rabbit girl scoffs. “What, she’s holding you hostage?” She twirls her hammer, and in a smooth motion, she swings it at Caster. It crashes into a barrier, and it almost breaks.“I know when someone’s charmed when I see it!” she says, “How are you this strong without a supply of magical energy?!” she says, frowning as she backs away.“You picked the wrong day to fight with me!”Then, you catch a glimpse of Archer.[1/2]
>>2440572Although you could not have possibly known, the Assassin that was summoned to this Holy Grail War was one that possessed Presence Concealment EX. It was so great that it rivalled even his peers'.After killing his master, this particular Hassan-i-Sabbah went on to slaughter countless civilians in record time, draining them of their magical energy so that he could activate and use his Noble Phantasm.It is now that he has appeared in the most stealthiest, most lethal form of assassination possible: the 18-wheeler.it barrels down the street and onto the sidewalk, crashing through the entrance of the school gates. Assassin licks his lips as he adds more magical energy to his sweet wide.With his Presence Concealment, there was no way Archer could’ve seen it coming before it was too late. In a single, savage blow, Hassan kills Cupid and her master without mercy.You, of course, see the truck barreling down right at you.Caster shouts, “Shoe, we need Rider! Use your Command Spell!”You have no idea what that means, but you need to give Rider an order! Command Rider to kill herself. Command Rider to destroy the truck. Refuse. Write-in.
>>2440623> Command Rider to destroy the truck.
>>2440623>Assassin was Truck-kunIt's...it's fucking perfect.>Kiss RiderIf Cupid's charmed her we naturally have to use our own charm to snap her out of it.

wait a second... I recognize this art style!Gibe cute Yamikigos hopeless
>>2440721So we unlocked the good end r-right?
>>2440623>You, of course, see the truck barreling down right at you.Impossible! We managed to see through Assassin's EX rank Presence Concealment that not even an Archer could overcome?Do we have some kind of hitherto unknown ability to always be able to see things at a distance approaching in our direction, even when we would otherwise prevented from doing so? Some manner of ability to perceive things both far and near, and distinguish between the two? Almost like some sort of Mystic Eyes of Depth Perception?
Wait, Rider? Isn’t she good at riding things?You shout, “Rider! I command you to drive that truck away from here!”Caster says, “Why didn’t you take the chance to kill Assassin?!”You stare at her blankly. “...Who?”Whatever regrets you may begin to have, it’s too late. Rider flies inside and shatters the windshield of the truck with with a single swing of her hammer. She lands in the passenger seat and begins to kick the driver in the face.“Get off!” Assassin shouts. He reaches for a knife, but his seatbelt was the biggest mistake of his life. Rider’s hammer slams him into his seat, sending him in a daze. She rips his seatbelt off and throws him out, where he’s promptly run over by his own Noble Phantasm. As the rabbit girl grips the steering wheel, it dawns on her that she’s not even a real Rider. She was mashed into this class card like a toddler trying to fit a square block into a circular hole. Still, she had the Riding Skill!Except she was riding someone else’s Noble Phantasm! And Assassin was dead so his ride was beginning to disappear! Rider--no, her True Name was Easter Bunny--then finally realized something.“My Master is a fucking idiot!” She spins the wheel, but it does little.The truck loses control, and it topples over as it drifts into the school building.Your life flashes before your eyes a third time.[1/2]
>>2440786This is ths funniest shit I've read in a long time. Kek
>>2440786InterludeItsuka throws out a lightning bolt, but it misses completely. In a grand flourish, Haku spins around to dodge it and throws a handful of talismans at the man, most of them hitting their mark.The teacher cries out as he hits the floor and slides down the hallway. He tries to get up, but his body refuses.“What a sorry excuse for a magus.” Haku laughs. “You need a thousand more years before you can beat me!” She stops laughing when she sees outside the window. “Ah... ehn?”She only catches a glimpse of the rolling truck before the building begins to tilt. “Ehn? Eeeehn?!”Outside, Saber duels with Beserker. When the truck hit the building, the latter suddenly drops down on her knees.“GRRR, AAAAAAAAAHH!!!” she cries out before she collapses. A tide of magical energy begins to pour out of her.Nobody will ever know her True Name.Ever.[2/3]
>>2440817Who the fuck is Raymoo. I don't remember her at all
>>2440832Are you being dense on purpose?
>>2440848If that's from Kaleidoscope quest I only read the first thread. Also teams are gone that's kinda sad
>>2440860Touhou, not Kaleidoscope.
So... Lancer wins by default?
>>2440867Ok then I don't feel as bad for not knowing I don't really care about Touhou all that much. Good music though
You lie there, crushed by a large piece of rubble. You can’t feel the lower half of your body. Running over to you, Itsumo cries out as she touches your face.“Shuu! Shuu, hang in there,” she says.You cough. “I think I made a mistake.”“It’s going to be okay,” she tells you, trying to console. You’re not sure if it’s directed at you or herself.Footsteps.“Man, you sure put up a fight,” someone says. You recognize it. You strain to turn your head, only to see it’s Kyou. “Sorry bud, but it’s over. I didn’t mean to involve you. You’re unlucky as hell, you know that? I’ll try to make it quick.”Itsumo cries out, “I don’t understand what’s happening! Why are you saying that? Are you the bad guy?”A broken piece of wall is lifted, and Caster rises from it, clearly weakened. She staggers over. “Izumo, get back.” Something is wrong with this her head, and it’s not because of the crash.Kyou snaps his fingers. “Come on Lancer, let’s clean this up. We don’t have much time left.”“Hehe, okay!” a cheery voice replies. A shadow erupts from nowhere, and a scythe drops. Before Caster could even react, she’s sliced into two. You watch in horror as the Servant falls, and Itsumo screams. Lancer twirls her scythe again. “Hello, and goodbye!”It falls down on Itsumo, who’s blocking you. Give up. Push her out of the way. Write-in.
>>2440882> Push her towards the servant

You open your mouth, but all that happens is that you cough out blood. Damn it! You couldn’t even make your last words some stupid thing to throw Kyou off his game. With both your hands you grab Itsumo by the shoulders and push her out of the way.Lancer splits you in half. At least you saved her.BAD END[1/2]

Be sure to hang out with him enough, or otherwise he won’t spare you!”“...Wait, what? This isn’t that type of game? Oh, that’s right. I know what went wrong. You should’ve stayed home!

>>2441061>There are faggots that actually picked yHoly shit why would anyone do that when y was the superior option?
>>2441069It's a thing in the Fate VN. Whenever you die a taiga dojo shows up and one of th characters explains what you did wrong and why it was a dumb idea.
>>2441091Oh ok. I thought Hopeless drank a little to much weaboo sake
>>2441100It was too late for him on that count a long, long time ago.
>>2441112One by one, your senses return. Ever so slowly, the world returns to you. Opening your eyes, you see Saber standing before you.Lancer is a great distance away, and along with Kyou, they look on, terrified.In a calm voice, he says, “You’re back. I’m glad.”“Huh?” you say, feeling your body again. You can move your legs, and you aren’t split in half down the vertical! “What did you do?”“A little trick,” he says, smiling. Standing up, he faces the two. His arm opens his cloak, pointing his makeshift sword at Lancer.Lancer shakes her head, “No... no! This shouldn’t be happening! Who are you?! How dare you!”Kyou snarls. “This is impossible! My Servant is the strongest! Come on Lancer, kill him!”Saber chuckles. “I see I’m not the only one whose divinity was lowered. What a miracle I was even summoned.” He kicks off the ground to meet lancer. Scythe clashing with spearhead, the two weapons spark as magical energy collides with magical energy.Itsumo helps you stand up, and you look at her. “Are you okay?”“That’s my question,” she replies. When you look down, you see that the mark on her hand is gone. Yours is the same.Kyou shouts, “This is impossible! There’s no way class cards can have this much of an effect!”As Saber fends off blow after blow, he casually says, “I’m afraid I don’t know much about this pretty ‘Grail War’ thing, so I can’t help answer that question.”“No!” he shouts, “Even if I lowered its divinity, and even if she’s a psuedoservant, nothing can beat Death!”The scythe cuts through the air. A conceptual weapon that severs the soul from the body. It doesn’t land a single hit, not with Saber’s parries.Lancer shouts, “Die, Saber! Die, die, die!” She grows more desperate, more fervorous. The blows become quicker and stronger.Saber, of course, easily matches.“Oh dear, I think I must have made a mistake while introducing myself.”[3/4]
>>2441123Is the girl in the pic. Lancer?
>>2441123.....What are class cards?
>>2441136Not sure on that myself, I think they're a thing frm Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma Ilya that let normal people merge with a servant?
>>2441148>Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma IlyaYou're just putting random words together right. There's no way that's the actual name
>>2441123“My tongue must have slipped. Did I say Saber? I meant Saver.”His hood flies off as he spins around. His weapon slices through the air, cutting through Lancer’s cloak. His face, and alongside the halo--it’s unmistakable.Lancer’s face is filled with fear. “No way... No, it’s a lie! You’re lying!” She screams and runs at him. Saver practically dances around her, slipping by all of her attacks. She swings her scythe wildly, and when she realize what she had hit, it was too late. There’s a huge, shadowy gash in Kyou’s chest. He makes some kind of gasp, and then he collapses.“Oh crap, I didn’t mean to mess around that much,” Saver says, panicking a little. “Time to end this.”In an instant, Jesus Christ cut down Death with a single blow, his holy relic spear slicing through the little girl as if she was made of paper.She falls down, seemingly unwounded. However, magical energy disperses from her.Saver looks around. “Now where is it?” His eyes stop on you and Itsumo, who have frozen in fear. “Take care, you two. I’m sorry this happened, but as long as you live I’m sure you two can overcome anything. Farewell, Master and her friend!”He leaps away, and you and Itsumo are left with the sight of his disappearing back.After a quiet minute, you say, “What the fuck just happened?”THE END
>>244117612/10 ending. Really fun one-shot
>>2441176>“My tongue must have slipped. Did I say Saber? I meant Saver.”THAT AIN'T MA BUDDHA
Ah, so that was the Spear of Longinus he was fighting with, right? I kinda had a feeling it could have been JC at first.
Epilogue:After a long time, the school is rebuilt.The Mage Association helped cover everything up, wiping the memories of everyone associated, even yours. They destroyed the sorry excuse for the Greater Grail system that was drawn with crayons.No one ever discovered that Kyou was plotting with Lucy. Also, don’t call him Lucy.Your classmate with the foldable steel chair woke up with a headache, completely fine.After a month, Haku woke up from her coma from having a roof fall on her head, and she quickly went back to travelling around beating up magi for fun.Itsumo is cheery as ever, especially since you joined the Archery Club.And sometimes, you feel like something’s missing when you play Beast Chaser.TRUE END
I sorta expected a twist like that, but then the reasonable part of my brain said "nah, there's no way Hopeless would have literal, actual Jesus Christ of Nazareth in a quest." You never cease to amaze, QM. Thanks for running.
Thanks for playing! Hope you guys had fun.My beautiful twitter: https://twitter.com/hopelessqm>>2440938Nice, the wink really sells it. It was supposed to be ^ at first, but then I thought why the hell not.>>2441194Yup, that's it.>I kinda had a feeling it could have been JC at first.Haha, I tried to make it not too obvious.
>>2441195Thanks for running Hopeless. That ending was Kino!
>>244119511/10 ending sorry but you can't beat the other one
>>2441203Did we ever actually see what Assassin looked like? I'm curious what he was, that his NP was Truck-kun. I also wonder who Berserker was supposed to be.
>>2441203So was Levi the secret 7th servant or master
>>2441217>AssassinHe looked like a very flat Hassan by the end of it all, I'm sure.>>2441221pls. It's 8th, and probably
>>2441226>probably Muh dick.
Oh, for those who haven't gotten yet, Kyou's name is composed of the words kyoukan (specifically 凶漢) and naisho>>2441112I accidentally quoted this a while back. Oops.And rude. Even though you're not wrong.
>>2441226Wait. What the fuck would've happened if we betrayed (best girl) Itsumo
>>2441246Game over. Forever. No revive.
>>2441248YOU SEE THIS PEOPLE!? THAT'S WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU TRY AND BETRAY BEST GIRL!!!
>>2441251But we never betrayed Levi.
>>2441272That's best boy anon
Ok one last question before I go to bed (this'll be the first thing I wake up to Hopeless so make sure not to disappoint) Cupid quest?
>>2441298Yeah, but not anytime soon
>>2441319Ping pong quest episode 2 when....i dont care if it isnt animated as long as it is draw quest.
>>2441357Seriously? When I'm done with the semester, I guess.
>>2441361Is there ever any chance of more Psion academy? If not, do you plan on doing other draw quests with cute chuunis?
>>2441593No, and possibly in a year if I don't die via truck or noose.
Ok time to ask quite possibly the most important question how many children did Shuu and Itsumo have? (Family pic is appreciated but obviously not required)
>>2442330Ok in that case on to the next question. Who the fuck was Lancer supposed to be?
>>2442603Lancer was Death, right? The grimm reaper?
>>2438740It’s Fucking Cupid I swear
>>2442603I will not be ignored Hopeless!
>>2445907Oh so it wasn't one of your characters?
>>2445951Technically I did post that one gif on my twitter a year and a half ago on halloween. If you don't know what I'm talking about you can look for it or something
>>2446083Oh shit I don't remember that but Twitter says I liked it so I must have seen it before. Way to go for the obscure (Nowhere Noire got pretty cucked though). Also that animation was fucking incredible I spent a 1-2 minutes just staring at it! Very clean, kino/10
