The Grail War is on hold, in fact, most everything is on hold, for now is the time for a Carnival Moment, where things like Grail Wars simply don't happen. Well, at least in not any serious capacity.You are Shinji Makiri, Ten years ago you suddenly found yourself with the memories of a complete past life that saw this world as a fictional story due to some unprecedented form of inter-dimensional transportation. Since that day, your new composite being has been working to change the grim future laid out for you, but... that really isn't of much concern to you right now.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62c7_zKoSV8 [Embed]It's starting.Archive of Paradox Reincarnator: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Fate/Paradox%20ReincarnatorGeneral Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=WhatIsAQMStatus Menu: https://pastebin.com/h152hbhVShinji Status Page: https://pastebin.com/a6fiNxrZMy Twitter: https://twitter.com/WhatIsAQMLast Thread: >>4777271
"Wait a second..." Neco-Arc Chaos is reading through the letter on the counter. His hand tremble as he reads the news "Already?! It's only been a month!" He simply can't believe that there is already going to be another Carnival so soon after the last. Also who is even sending these letters?"Un-un-un!" Bubbles is just as excited as always."Well, seeing as I was so rudely ignyored. I felt like another Carnyaval would be the best way to improve things." Neco-Arc herself stands triumphantly on top of the counter, looming over Chaos with her arms crossed."You... You can't just create another Carnival! That's... That's not how it works!" The desperate sounding cat spirit tries to convince her to stop her foolish actions."It is now! Check this out, nya." The cat-like creatures flashes an autograph of somebody that she recently received. The sheet of paper is glowing with a golden power. "Wait a minute, that's...!" Neco-Arc Chaos realizes just what the bizarre sheet of paper that Neco-Arc is holding is immediately, and leaps forwards to try to grab it off of her, only for him to suddenly be teleported back to the chair he was sitting on."That's right! The signyature of a true fan! With this, I control everything! A perfect carnyaval of my own creation!" Neco-Arc seems to have gone mad with the power of the wishes of a single fan."No, you... you fool! you don't know what you're doing with that! Are you trying to start the Forever Carnival?!" Neco-Arc Chaos tries his hardest to grab the piece of paper from the deluded cat spirit, only for him to find himself returning to his chair the moment he gets close to her."Un-un-un!""So what if I am? Are you really telling me you're happy with the amount of screenyatime we're getting in this story? He didn't even decide to follow an obvious plothook! Now! Begin the global rewrite! Begin the Forever Carnyaval!" The piece of paper floats into the air and glows brightly. "Yes! Yes! It's finnyaly time for-" The piece of paper suddenly stops glowing entirely and falls to the ground without any more fanfare. "Oh. Out of power. Guess it's just a normal Carnyaval."...A long and awkward silence passes between everyone in the cafe. "It's starting." Neco-Arc Chaos sighs.
I'll post the stories in... I don't know, 20 minute intervyals?
>>4784053Of the ones we've got complete so far, we have Can't Trace that. "Where did Tiamat go?" and Monica's Diary.
Otome Shinji! GB him if you wish or not! 4rth wall breaking with shiki and shirou!
>>4784053Fine by me. How many have you planned to do this time?
>>4784057As many as I can.
WILL NEKO ARC CONTEND TO JOIN THE SHINJI BOWL?
>>4784049>Oh. Out of power. Guess it's just a normal Carnyaval.>Out of power>Power
Dear Diary - Date: XXXX - Entry: 22I've been working this job for those Matou assholes for some time now, I wouldn't normally take a job from a family of such... poor reputation in the Clocktower and Mercenary Circles, but I figured it was just a simple babysitting job, y'know? Easy money. Nobody needs to get shot and nobody needs to die, I just need to make sure that their brat doesn't wander off somewhere and get himself kidnapped to be sold for ransom or dissected for parts or whatever. God I hate magi.Dear Diary - Date: XXXX - Entry: 23Something seems to be different about Shinji, I'm not sure what changed, but... he seems to be a lot more motivated. I'm guessing that as the heir of his family, he started taking things a little bit more seriously, he's only eight years old, but most magi learn from a very young age how to use magecraft to continue the family legacy or goal. Sometimes, you're taught from birth, born and raised by your family for no reason other than to continue on their research. Or sometimes you're born as a tool to finish their research or to be used as a resource in their research. Sometimes children are born just to be raised and molded into living weapons.God I hate magi.Dear Diary - Date: XXXX - Entry: 27I've grown accustomed to Shinji being around. I guess that my first appraisal of the kid was wrong. He's acting like a man on a mission for some reason. I have no idea what he might be attempting to accomplish, but I've seen those eyes of his before. Those aren't the eyes you'd ever expect to see on an eight year old. They are burning with a great amount of determination and energy. Could something have been a wake-up call to him about something his own family are doing? There wouldn't be much of a reason for him to have suddenly gotten this antsy, right? Maybe I'll go through a few of these books, see if I can't find out just what the Matou family are actually guilty of.God I hate magi.
Dear Diary - Date: XXXX - Entry: 28No luck figuring out what the Matou family actually really do from the books kept at this place. Looks like they didn't want to leave an easily traceable record of just what it is that they're up to. There'a a few references to the Holy Grail War going on in Japan right now, sure, but nothing more concrete than that. I refuse to believe that their goal is only the Holy Grail though, that ritual has failed too many times in the past for anybody going into it to have pure motives about winning it. If a ritual has failed three times in the past, that's about the time anybody with any sense at all will be able to realize that they should either stop it or change it fundamentally. Hell, if you actually look at the fundamentals of the Grail War, it's practically doomed to fail eternally anyway. Seven Heroic Spirits bound to Seven Magus Masters by a contract with Command Spells that allow the Master to control the Servant with three commands they cannot disobey. In theory, simple, the last one standing should get the wish. In practice, doomed, because magi are all crybabies who will shit everything up in order to prevent somebody from getting their own way if they aren't getting theirs.God I hate magi.Dear Diary - Date: XXXX - Entry: 35Parted way with Shinji. Now he's back off to his no doubt abusive magus family. I wish I could do more for all those children around the planet stuck in positions like him. It's not a life a child should be forced to live. I heard the Magus Killer was involved in the Fourth Holy Grail War, kind of impressive the kid even has a family home to go back to at all. Then again, it ended with failure once more, apparently a huge blazing conflagration poured out of the Holy Grail and killed about 300 people, men, women, children. Total indiscriminate death. Of course, the people running the war probably consider those to be an acceptable number of casualties for their ritual.God I hate magi.
Dear Diary - Date: XXXX - Entry 80Met with Shinji again. For some reason he has business in an average sized Japanese town called... get this 'Misaki Town'. Yeah, that Misaki Town. The same one that Aozaki bitch lives in. I have a strict code, y'know? I don't go after the people who I don't think deserve it, so when she decides to not only protect a mark because she was nearby, but also get into an actual fight with me after she was unable to save him from being choked to death by his own stupid necklace? Leaves a real bad taste in the mouth. I tried to explain things to her, that the guy I killed was actually in charge of a people smuggling ring that provided raw human material to magi less opposed to illegal means, but she just wouldn't listen, would she? She means well, at least, but eugh, learn to read a situation before you storm in like the hero, 'Blue'.I've still remember the bruises from that fight. I feel like I gave as good as I got, but she was obviously holding back.God I hate magi.Dear Diary - Date XXXX - Entry 82Killed a Dead Apostle today. Didn't remember his name. Doubt I'll be seeing him or hearing mention of him again. Killing him also provided me with an unexpected cash sum, which was nice. He was after Shinji, and... well, I'm the kid's bodyguard, it was my duty to protect him from the Dead Apostle. Maybe next time they might learn their opponents before confronting somebody with the ability to manipulate electromagnetism while standing on a ferrous sewer grate. Dumbass.God I hate dead apostles.Dear Diary - Date XXXX - Entry 120I miss Shinji.Dear Diary - Date XXXX - Entry 300Today I helped Shinji deal with his grandfather. Or at least that was the plan. The old worm seems to have fled deep into the sewers, and while we successfully raided Shinji's family home, there was no Zouken Matou in sight. I heard what was going on, and I knew it, I knew that there was something shady going on with that bastard family. Well, at least Shinji isn't a bastard like the rest of his family were, and his sister seems like a cute girl too. Though, that's not to say she looks harmless. There's a certain look in her eyes that hides a hidden layer of danger that Shinji is apparently completely oblivious to. Still, I wouldn't want to spoil his relationship with his younger sister. It's refreshing to see that there are at least some people in this world who would go to great lengths to save the people they care about.Wait, shit, is this thing out of pages? Damn it!
>>4784069So are we going to make a robot puppet for Tesla to migrate to or are we simply excising him?
>>4784069>There's a certain look in her eyes that hides a hidden layer of danger that Shinji is apparently completely oblivious toThats the raw incestuous energy emanating from her
>>4784069Tesla was really good match for her.>>4784073We can put him to work and he will be very useful during Clocktower purging arc.
>>4784059Hope you get to the transfer student one. I assume that's Shinji + Co's insanity in Waver's class?
>>4784080Well sure that would be nice but we’re not letting him use our bodyguard as meatpuppet.
"This is... terrible" Mash looks out at the ruins of Uruk, the Chaos Tide having completely overwhelmed the city. There wasn't a single human survivor left in all of Uruk, barring their small group."Does... Mother really hate humanity this much?" Ishtar speaks softly as the city burns."Who knows? The voice of that Beast does not seem to reach us, does it even have a mind of its own? It's simply a mechanism that exists only to destroy the world. The Moment that Tiamat became an Evil of Humanity, I imagine it ceased to be the Tiamat that you knew." Gilgamesh states calmly, analytically observing the situation."Then... Then how are we going to stop Mother?" Ishtar frowns. She might have taken her anger out on Uruk in the past, but never ever to a level like this. This was nothing short of complete and total genocide."I imagine that when Uruk completely disappears, the evils she has spawned will cease." The king frowns too, still thinking of a means out of their terrible situation. "Still, the time for chatter is over, our Mother approaches." A great layer of clouds surrounding the ginormous goddess disappear. "Ishtar, take to the sky, there is no sense in you remaining grounded here, hover above and wait for my signal.""Nnh, fine. But you're awfully overconfident for a human. Ritsuka, make sure he sticks with you, and make sure he doesn't do anything rash!" Ishtar, in what would normally be a rare moment of concern for her, demands the Master of Chaldea to ensure Gilgamesh's safety, or at least his inability to do something stupid. Since possessing her current vessel, Ishtar has managed to become quite a bit more tolerable."Fool! Ritsuka is sticking with me! Not the other way around! Now, behold the power of the King of Uruk!" Hundreds of projectiles slam into Tiamat, though they barely slow her down. "But... The Dingir? How are they being fired without being operated?" Mash questions the King of Heroes."Ha! The Dingir were designed by ME, they function with MY magical energy, AND THEY ARE CONTROLLED BY ME!" The projectiles keep firing upon the Beast, her progress towards the ziggurat being slowed if ever so slightly. "But... what about the Lapis Lazuli?" Mash asks a pointless and irritating question."Merely a substitute for magical energy, now watch as I show you what I am capable of! I with the blood of both a human, and as much as it irritates me, a god, shall-!"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA LAAAAAAAAAAAAA" Tiamat's eye glows bright red like a small star before Gilgamesh stumbles backwards. In a fraction of an instant, a single red bolt of energy was fired, piercing through the heart of the King of Uruk without issue.
"Ah, you would... try to snipe me? This is nothing! Simply a mortal wound! This shall not stop me from my duty to defend Uruk!" Half of Gilgamesh's words are bravado, and the other is genuinely his belief in himself that such a wound will not truly prove capable of being able to stop him. Though as he remains standing without issue despite the baseball sized hole in his chest where his heart should be. There's another flash of light, and the group brace themselves for an impact.An impact which never comes."What's... What's going on?" Mash looks out at the City of Uruk, all traces of Tiamat had just completely disappeared.>Tiamat is... Gone?>Did something happen to Tiamat?"There's... no readout at all! Tiamat's magical energy signature has disappeared entirely from this world!" The holographic projection of Romani sounds more panicked at the sudden disappearance of the Beast than he was by the presence of her in the first place."What do you mean she's gone?!" Gilgamesh, despite his mortal wound, is somewhat displeased by Tiamat's disappearance. "Did Beast II escape somehow? But... who could have done such a thing?""It appears... It appears as if time had undergone... revision! Revision before our very eyes! Tiamat is... gone from this age entirely!" Romani sounds completely befuddled as he reveals the readouts to the group. "Then... is it over? Did we... Did we win?" Mash looks at the still burning city. The fires had yet to go out, but the Chaos Tide and the Lahmu, all of them have disappeared. "No... There's... Something else at play here." Gilgamesh is still ignoring his fatal wound, even with the threat to Uruk disappeared. "Somebody was behind this. Somebody with the power to manipulate even a Beast freely. Such people should not exist, but..." King Gilgamesh trails off, trying his hardest to figure out just what on Earth has occurred."Could it have been Solomon?" Mash is still worried that things are about to take a turn for the worse. "Ha! That fool? I doubt it, even his power to control Tiamat was limited to merely releasing her from her prison. No, this... This must've been the will of Tiamat herself somehow. But... why? She was moments away from achieving her goal of wiping out humanity, so... why would she have left?"
I miss Monica.>>4784073I don't want to leave the angry autist in her head for a second more. We can resummon him later if we want.
>So... we won then?>So... mission complete?"I... I guess so, Senpai. But... this is worrying, we didn't defeat Beast II at all, so... she's still out there somewhere. We're going to need to be on our guard for the person who did this." Mash is clearly very worried by the threat."I doubt that whoever did this is a foe. Or that it was even something done on purpose." Gilgamesh looks up to the sky. "I... noticed something the moment Tiamat disappeared and this Singularity began to repair itself, my eyes showed me... An opening to a void without time, a temple containing the means to summon an endless number of Gods, and..." King Gilgamesh suddenly smiles for some reason. "...Outsider." The king collapses to the floor, allowing himself to succumb to the wound he suffered at Tiamat's hands. With his death, the singularity will truly be restored, and proper history will flow in the place of the singularity.>This kind of feels like an anti-climax.>Wait a minute... The final boss was a Bel Lahmu?!
We're not going to marry Monica are we?
>>4784092Monica the mega groomer. Touko needs to step up her game!
>>4784092I don't think she'll want that.It's going to be fun when we meet that chaldea crew and tell them exactly why their singularities got fucked up mid-run.
>>4784089ur welcome based Gil
>>4784089Based. Paradox Incarnated singularity when?
>>4784083Of course Monica`s wellbeing takes priority.But if puppet body is possible and with our money and some really good ideas we could put him to work.>>4784089No wonder other Alayas are seething with jealousy.
>>4784102>Other Alayas seething with jealousyGood. They can seethe even more when they see Alaya and Shinji having a one on one H scene in Alaya's world. Every single counter guardian and grand servant they send to us will be recruited to ourside, how reee inducing that must be for the other Alaya's.
You'll... You'll take this malevolence into your own body! You begin to fully draw the dark energy into your body, and the world goes black as you finish doing so. You wake up on the cold hard floor of the prison. You can see Sakura, and you can even still see Stheno and Euryale, but... Medusa is... missing? No, that's... not quite right. You're Medusa. Wait a second. No that's not right either. You're not Medusa, and you're not Shinji Makiri. Or... Wait a minute..."Oh fantastic. This is just... great." You get up from the floor. You can hear a voice in the back of your mind. 'Shinji, what... what happened? Why am I possessing you right now and... what are these memories.'"Ah... Ahahaha... Memories... Medusa?" Your voice is incredibly awkward as you come to a certain realization of the fact that while you may have remained in charge of your body, which is now just as powerful as a Servants, the two of you are... of one mind, sort of. You have access to all of Medusa's thoughts and memories, and she has access to all of your thoughts and memories. 'I just want you to know that I'm very disappointed in you.'"You... You don't have to look through all that, you know?" You plead with the voice of the woman in your head. Already wondering whether it's a possibility for Medusa to be extracted from you somehow. She can be given her body back, you're pretty sure.'But I'm having such fun, Shinji! Oh my, is that Rin? What is she doing with all those old men?' Rider's voice is genuinely shocked as she goes through some of the things you would've rather been able to forget since you came to this world. 'Oh dear, is that me and Sakura... with... Shirou, of all people? Scandalous.'"Please stop, Rider. This... This isn't funny anymore."'No Shinji, this isn't funny, it's... hilarious. Why on earth do you have such memories locked away? I don't really know if I want the answer, but... there's a whole lot of stuff here... A lot of snakes and dragons too. If I didn't know any better, I'd say you had an... attraction to them...?"Can we talk about something other than the doujins, Rider, please?! You've got access to my deepest innermost thoughts and memories, so can you please just... discover what I truly am before you go rummaging through my memories of stuff like that?!" You look at Sakura and the two sleeping girls on the floor, before you look down at your own outfit. What was once a dignified suit has been replaced by what can only be called a black and pink male stripper's outfit. This... This is just the worst. You want to disappear. You want another chance. Would killing yourself right here and now maybe let you go to the Taiga Dojo so you could have another choice? Well, if you did it, it would have to be something you didn't make as a conscious choice. A fun joke, but... Well, it's probably better that somebody find out just what's going on in your head half the time.
How about every other manaka travels to our boi shinji's timeline?
'Oh, I already realized that the moment you and I became one. It's not really something I want to bother focusing on right now. Right now, lets focus on a few of these delightful memories of yours.'"You're going to make my life a living hell from now on, aren't you, Rider?" You mutter, this is truly the absolute worst outcome of events. Medusa is never ever going to let you live this down, even if she's given her body back, she's going to hold this over your head for the rest of your life. You've got a great deal of power available to you now, that's true, but the price that power came at is... well, a cost greater than any you would've ever thought possible. Your choices are now to allow yourself to be bullied by Rider from within your own mind for the rest of your life, or attempt release Rider and risk everyone else finding out what she now knows about you. You should've just let her fight her own battle at the end there. That's pretty clear now. Maybe you can bribe Medusa into pretending to forget what she now knows about you?Probably not.
we might the right decision not fusing with her
>>4784120It would have satisfied the fetishes of certain people.......me....
>>4784113>pic related is how we look like
>>4784113Damn, I underestimated how chill Medusa is.
>>4784111Oh no, not the doujins. Anything but the doujins. Those filthy, disgusting, dragon and snek and Sakura vore doujins. Even the memes are better.>>4784120Definitely the right decision.
>>4784111>>4784113>Medusa went right for doujin memories and was specifically searching for dragon and snake monster girlsIntriguing.>>4784120Non-Carnival version would have been more serious I imagine.Medusa doing some meta commentary would have spice things are a bit too.
>>4784130Medusa reaction to Femme Fetale doujin when?
>>4784125didn't canon!Shinji also get put in a deathloop?
Solving harem issues would have been such a wild ride with rent free Medusa.
>>4784134i care so little for what happened to canon shinji that i couldnt tell you even if you put a gun against my head, anon
That golden sword of truth that is being wielded by Shinji. I... I want to make a weapon like that too! Trace on. I activate my magic circuits. Shinji doesn't appreciate the beauty of the weapon he so casually created. The golden light that makes it up is of a greater level than any weapon I've ever seen before. No, it's a thousand orders of magnitude beyond them all, comparing the Noble Phantasms of Servants to a weapon like this is like comparing a child's hand painting to a masterpiece from the Renaissance. The two simply don't compare. This sword. I need to hold it for myself.First step: Judging the Concept of Cre- My mind freezes. My blood freezes. My body freezes. My brain works overtime just trying to figure out the concept of which the weapon was formed. Truth. What... What is Truth? Why can my mind not comprehend it? It's a sword, right? So... why is it that... Why is it that I can't figure out... It's a sword. I feel my body start to seize up, before it comes apart in a show of white light. In that moment, I am liberated from this world. I successfully manage to parse the concept of Truth, and as a result, I cease to be. I hear the last few words of Shinji before ascending."What the fuck?"DEAD END. "No Saber! Don't use Excalibur! I have a better idea!" A blade of prismatic light appears in my mind's eye. If absolute destruction is what we're looking for, than this weapon is something even greater than Saber's Excalibur. A blade taken from a God of War, repurposed into a weapon of mass destruction by its new wielder and used to bring civilizations to their knees. Yes, the sword of Attila the Hun... No, the Sword of Ares. While Excalibur could be called a blade of victory, the concept taking form in the light of the blade's swing, victory doesn't necessarily bring destruction. Not like War does.I strain my body to its limits as I trace the Divine Construct, the supreme blueprints provided to me by Shinji allow me to trace even those weapons which are beyond my normal limits. Though my copy of the weapon is significantly downgraded from the original still, it's undoubtedly the Sword of Mars. The weapon of the War God appears in my hand, but... I hadn't taken into account one thing. The... connection to the God Ares. Before I can use the blade to generate the attack necessary to obliterate the growing ball of metal following after us, a circle of magic appears directly above us all, none of us even see the attack coming, as a beam of deadly heat and light purges all in its path. Shinji notices the beam at the same time he sees the sword I wield."Shirou you fucking idio-"DEAD END.
Of all the weapons that were shown to me by the supreme blueprints Shinji had access to, there is... there is one that stands out among all the others. A weapon... a blade, that would surely kill any God or even those beings beyond God. Not through imposing a concept of death upon them or forcing them to become mortal, but simply by completely and utterly obliterating every trace of their existence. Slash Emperor: The ultimate blade that represents a potential future of Humanity. I don't know how Shinji managed to see something like this, or attain blueprints for its creation superior to even what I can discern through structural analysis, but... It's a supreme blade. Even compared to Excalibur or the weapon wielded by Gilgamesh, Slash Emperor exists entirely on a separate level. A weapon of humanity from the far future, excelling at the function of slaying Ultimate Ones. Slash Emperor as a singular weapon is something that could overpower even the maximum strength of the planet. A weapon forged after the death of Gaia, not suffering from limitations that other weapons must face. If it were to be used against a planet, then that planet would surely be destroyed. If it were to be used against a God, then that God would surely meet their death. Slash Emperor is itself a Doomsday Weapon, a weapon that consumes planets. A weapon that destroys the world for the sake of humanity. He wasn't sure how things had come to this, somehow, Shinji and the rest were incapable of stopping Orochi, and though they had managed to disrupt his plans, Orochi managed to escape from them and begin to cause havoc. The huge eight headed snake dragon was headed on a war path directly towards Fuyuki. There's no other option left. No other weapon is great enough to defeat such an enemy. I follow all the steps of creation, ignoring the withering pain as my body starts to undergo necrosis as a result of trying to form the weapon. Finally, the seed in which Slash Emperor sprouts from is within my hand. The blade that destroys planets. Slash Emperor. Gods, being aspects of the planet, are of course extra susceptible to the power of the weapon. It's only natural for aspects of a planet to be weak to something that has the power to consume planets. The mere act of tracing the seed has given me the ability to float with it as it grows. To wield it as its original... or perhaps rather, its potential future owner, would wield it. The sword grows massively, until the blade itself towers over both Orochi and the tallest buildings in Fuyuki.
I bring the blade down on the rampaging god.The results are impossible, they cannot be put into words.So for now, let me just give you the results.The blade cuts downwards through the god, and splits them in twain. Instead of healing as it should have been able, the Beast simply dissolves into light and leaves nothing left without even a sound of surprise.In other words.A God cut, defeated.Dead End.
Pretty much exactly that I was expecting.
>>4784158Based death, full on GAR
>>4784158lmao is that based on the Musashi cutting Chaos path text?
>>4784158Awesome.However, Artoria needs you bro. Stay with us.
>>4784158Based Chad Slash Emperor Shirou. I'm guessing Shinji died in this timeline.
Enjoying the Carnival so far?
>>4784176ofc, now give us the Beast at Chaldea
>>4784176Yes! Are we going to see Shinji-chan or Ayaka soon?
>>4784176this is based yes
>>4784180its really low on the list so probably not this Paradox Carnival
>>4784176Yes.Wish we could have seem the dojos from shirou's deaths
>>4784069She really like us, dont she?We need to save her before something happens.
>>4784089its funny, SF ishtar stole ishtarin's bull and we stole her mother.
>>4784158Based shirou doing murder suicide to another being stronger than him.
>>4784158I admit, I expected him tracing Slash Emperor to have been more stupid. Was a badass dead end, bro.>>4784176Hell yeah.>>4784190Agreed. And not just from his tracing either, I bet he did stupid shit like jumping into Ibaraki's flames to protect Saber when they got attacked. Maybe next Carnival.
>first death is shirou being zero summing because he realizes the truth>second is him not realizing that Photon Ray is aimed at his current position and he has to redirect it>third is the death of a heroCool shit.
"So... let me get this straight, the Clocktower... has a blind date... sweepstakes?" Alan was intrigued by this whole sweepstakes thing, it turns out that every male magus is signed up to it, and once a year, one magus is randomly picked! While normally, he wouldn't have bothered indulging himself in such a silly sounding game, it's not like his other self really had anything better to do, and it's not like Shinji was around either."That's right, Alan." Waver groans. "Or well... it's more like a randomly assigned punishment." His teacher groans. While Alan was more powerful by a great deal than any of the idiot humans in this ridiculous building, he was still intrigued by just how they carried about their lives. The best humans to torment are the ones who think they have power. Their power as they considered it was naught but a fleeting gasp for air in a cold lifeless void. These humans... weren't important, but it was fun to indulge the ones who thought they were."In... what way is it a punishment, Sir?" If he really wanted to know, he could simply connect to his other self, and access all of the information this world has, but... again, what's the fun in that? Half the fun of playing around in this world was getting to experiment with it. This world wasn't much more than a toy box in the grand scheme of things. If he wished it, he could erase this world at it's origin point at the instant it was formed with his full power, but that's all kinds of boring. No, he was mostly here for that one boy, but there's nothing saying he can't have a little bit of fun with the rest of them."Well, it's uh... I'm sorry about this Alan, but... I'm pretty sure they'd organize me to be killed if I mentioned anything else, you're just going to have to... hope that you survive the next few hours." Waver Velvet, a pitiable man who thinks he is in any sort of position to pity somebody else. Lord El-Melloi II, a fancy title that roughly translates to 'Reines' Bitch' in Layman's terms."So what, I've... just got to go to this room listed on this letter?" It looks to be some sort of private room in the Aristocrat controlled part of the Clocktower, interesting... Who could the one behind this 'blind date' be then? Likely somebody in the Aristocrat faction with a great deal of trouble getting men to approach them. Well, whatever.
"Well, it would be best if you made a will first, but... that's about it, yeah. I'm really sorry about this, Alan." Waver apologizes again, well for whatever reason, the man does seem to be at least concerned about his well-being, so it might not be the best to respond with active scorn for him. Most humans are deserving of contempt, but even among humans that aren't him, there are those... who perhaps deserve some degree of acknowledgment. Though magi in general are fools trying to reach beyond their station. The Root? There's multiple beings across this world's timelines who have direct access to such a thing, and if he were willing to wield his full power against them, they would be destroyed in an instant along with their planet. To somebody like him, the Root is, at the end of the day, simply another tool. "I'll be fine, Sir. Trust me." Alan remains as professional and composed as he normally does. He does enjoy this persona a great deal. He could only imagine how he could drive the heads of this institute to madness simply by announcing his presence to them. The only one who could be a bother is that Zelretch, but... well, he's been blocked off from entering this world directly. Serves him right for being a known vector! "Now, the message indicated that I must meet her no later than 11:30am, so I'll speak with you later."A date. It's strange, he'd never been on a blind date before, he'd interacted with humanity through a host of vessels and containers in the past, true, but he'd never taken as much of an active interest in them as he has thanks to Shinji's presence. The idea that something on a higher scale to him could happily live life as a human was... intriguing. What was so great about being a human anyway? They are weak, they die quickly, they are downright inferior to those Gods that they once worshiped even after 'out-growing' their worship. Quite ridiculous, those Gods may have served to protect them against the threats that could emerge from the stars beyond humanity. Well, some of them, at least.He makes his way to the room, which he finds is locked. Knocking on the door earns him a response from the inhabitant. "What's the word on the bottom left of the letter?" The woman's voice sounds frustrated and annoyed. She's clearly been forced into this as well, which... well, it's a little bit strange that both people involved on a blind date seem to be somewhat unwilling participants to it."It's wind." It doesn't take long for Alan to relay the information to the woman behind the door, and a clicking sound from the door invites him to open it. He's not at all nervous, but even so, he takes a deep breath as he opens up the door. Prepared to be pleasantly surprised by whatever awaits him beyond the door. Honestly, no matter who it is, this is bound to be at least a mildly amusing way to spend the afternoon.
"Good. I was waiting for you. Let's just get this out of the way." The woman sitting at the table is none other than Lorelei Barthomeloi, the intrigue of this situation thickens, whatever could the so called 'Queen of the Clocktower' be doing, going out on blind dates with random members of the Clocktower? "Look, before you ask me some stupid question about what this is all about, I'm just going to tell you. Every year, by agreement with my family, I agree to go on a single date. Congratulations on being chosen. Now, before we get started, what's your name, rank, and family status?" The woman is annoyingly all business, hell, even he knew more about how dates were supposed to work than this woman. No wonder her family have had to effectively resort to abusing their power in the clocktower."You're kind of demanding, aren't you? This is meant to be a date, not a survey. You need to-" The woman cuts him off. Unbelievably."I asked you a question." Her eyes narrow, but Alan narrows his own eyes to match her, cutting him off mid sentence is a guaranteed way to piss him off."Well, I told you that I don't really feel like answering it. You don't hold any power over me. If you want to actually date somebody, then how about you get off your high horse and start acting like a human being?" Honestly, nothing pissed him off more than humans acting like they were beyond humanity. You're not going to rise above your station, so don't act like you are! Is that really too much to ask? "Well, you're not a coward. Or you're remarkably stupid." The woman at the table drums her metal gloved hand against the surface, probably in some doomed attempt to intimidate him. Ha! Queen of the Clocktower or not, she's no threat. "But... you're at least more entertaining than the rest of the 'dates' I've had in the past. So... take a seat, I assume you already know who I am, but for the sake of formalities, I am Barthomeloi Lorelei, and you are?""Alan Thorpe, first generation magus and conqueror of a billion planets." Lorelei raises an eyebrow at that, but apparently dismisses it as a joke. It wasn't a joke. "My rank is... well, I'm only a Cause right now." If he wanted to, he could've blown away the entire evaluation department to get the rank of Grand, but that's no fun. You become unapproachable and people become wary of you if they are of the belief that you are somebody a great deal above them.
"A first generation magus...? What sort of magecraft are you studying?" Lorelei, despite herself, appears to be interested in him. Well, that's fine, he supposes."The alignment of the stars and the effect that the cosmos can have on humanity." He can barely suppress a smile. Too easy.A few hours pass, and eventually, Alan leaves the room adjusting his creased suit alongside a disheveled looking Lorelei. The woman is a bright red shade of crimson as she scurries off down the corridor. So... was that what humans enjoy then? He'll have to tell Waver all about this.
>>4784223Tell me whatis, was there handholding involved?
>>4784223I was thinking you were going to set him up with Yang Guifei somehow.
>>4784226There may have been some excessively lewd consensual handholding going on.
>>4784228You were planning on doing that in the quest itself, no?I wanted to make this a surprise.It's also not really much of a blind date if you already know the other person.
>>4784223Alan is a chad
>>4784236Wish we were
>>4784223Damn, Alan. Making Lorelei a tomato is no easy feat, great job.
>>4784222>Every year, by agreement with my family, I agree to go on a single date.That's not gonna happen to us when we go right?
>>4784223Man, Alan has game.
>>4784241>That's not gonna happen to us when we go right?Haha
>>4784232>You were planning on doing that in the quest itself, no?I do hope we get a chance. Cthugha is pretty good at keeping Nyarly on his toes and behaving nicely.>I wanted to make this a surprise.It was superb, no complaints here.He even has better moral compass than most of magi if we judge by internal monologue.
And honestly after seeing this we better asking Alan for love advices.
>>4784253Or Shirou, they’re both more based than us
>>4784214>Lord El-Melloi II, a fancy title that roughly translates to 'Reines' Bitch'Savage, based Nyarly.
>>4784254>"Shinji, you just need to put your sword inside her scabbard."
>>4784260You lost me.
>>4784260Instructions unclear, Avalon caught in ceiling fan.
"OK, Mash, have you got your shield? We've got enough resources to summon another Servant." Ritsuka was ready to summon another Servant, hopefully she'd be able to summon somebody strong enough to help them get through the Lostbelts. She only just managed to get through Russia, and the next one is looking like it's going to be even more of a challenge to get through. She needed to be strong though, the world... everyone was counting on her to be strong. If she gave up, then there would be no hope for the world she knew, everyone would disappear without a chance to bring it back."I have, Senpai! Preperations are ready, preparing Heroic Spirit Summoning Ceremony! Activating the..." The lights turn off as all power is lost to Novum Chaldea. Red lightning crackles around the center of the summoning chamber, a feeling of dread washes over all within the facility. The circle activates all by itself, having siphoned away the full power of the facility. The red lightning increases in intensity until finally, a tanned man with white hair is standing in the center of the circle."Wow, so, Beast X? A bit of an odd classification if you ask me, but I suppose it will have to do. Good day, Chaldea! I am the Beast of Alaya, and I'm here to solve this 'bleaching' problem you might be having.""A... A beast?! Here!? Everyone! Get everyone to-!" The man snaps his fingers, and the lights all come back on, though more importantly the security doors are somehow hacked and locked in an instant. A small crystal is hovering around near the man. "Yeah... that... that won't be a thing you'll be doing. You see, I'm here as a... I guess you could call me a temporary transfer student? Your Alaya keeps shitting the bed and allowing her world to end, so I'm here to put a stop to that." The man speaks cryptically. "I don't enjoy doing the work of those Counter Force Janitors, but sometimes you just need to step in to stop some stupid shit from happening." The man laughs. "Allow me to introduce myself, my name is (You), though I go by other names, Beast ought to suffice, God knows that DW isn't giving you poor saps a chance to summon another one.""So... you're a Beast, but... you're on our side?""Yeah, funny about how that works, look at your stupid rabbit dog, or maybe Holmes. Did you know that Cu Chulainn in his Caster form is probably just Odin?""I... what? What about Holmes?" Mash is quick to jump to the defense of the detective against this mysterious Beast."Look... you guys don't even know that Olga Marie is Beast VII yet, do you?" He flippantly changes to topic to something else that is equally unbeleivable."WHAT?!" Mash is even more worked up now.
"Well, I don't know the exact details here, but Beast VII has taken the form of Olga Marie. This was probably all part of Marisbury's doings, but I can't say for certain. Basically, Chaldea is a mistake, and the two gormless retards that won the Grail War in this world ruined everything for everyone else." The Beast shrugs. "But never fear, for I'm here to save the day! Your friendly neighborhood Beast-kun has arrived! Move over useless mascot characters! The real muscle has arrived!" "I... I have no idea what's going on." Ritsuka is left completely bewildered."Aww, you're no fun, why couldn't I have been summoned to a Chaldea with a fun version of you?" The Beast is visibly disappointed by Ritsuka's reactions. "Come here, I'm going to apply the concept of Riyo to you." The man may have a warm smile on his face, yet his eyes are visibly deranged."W-wait! Get away from her!""You stay out of this, eggplant! I'm making this story less of a monotonous slog!" He starts speaking madness again."Aren't you supposed to be helping?!" Mash struggles to hold the man back from Ritsuka."I am helping! The audience will love a more entertaining main character!" Ritsuka is fairly certain that this Beast must have some form of Madness Enhancement, he's not making a lot of sense here.
>>4784282>>4784284So our most CHAD form is Beast of Alaya? Good to know.
>>4784282I hope the other Alayas humbly apologized to our Alaya for coasting on her strength and then trying to murder her when she asserted her independence before we agreed to do some janny work for them.
>>4784295I hope our Alaya did Oh ho ho ho laugh at them.
>>4784284...i thought this was gonna be Tiamat!Sakura at Singularity arc Chaldeastill funny tho
>>4784301I might write that idea next.I'm on a roll.
>>4784306Do it. And what the fuck fuels you, 7 was a conservative estimate after all.
>>4784306Do so. Sounds fun.I also have high hopes for Foreigner Shinji and Wuxia Protagonist Shinji.
>>4784309Carnival fuels me.
>>4784301Some time-fuckery like Summer Hinako being summoned to a pre-lostbelt Chaldea?
Sometimes it was tough to get by as a magus from a relatively newly established family, especially one with as many problems as his family, Roland Heydon was the newest student to sign onto the Modern Magecraft Theory class. Whereas most of the classes in the Clocktower were basically driven by wealth and nepotism, it was said that El-Melloi II's class was something that anybody could realize their potential within. Still, it wasn't easy being the newest student in the class, which is why Roland was especially happy with the news that a new group of Students were joining the class. "Everyone, I'd like to introduce you to a new batch of Transfer Students, as well as the woman who will be... helping me teach modern magecraft theory, Mrs. Colchis." The violet haired woman curtsies slightly at her introduction. The woman starts her lecture. "Hello, I hear that you're all very well versed in modern magecraft theory, and I believe it will be a complete delight to teach all of you! Now, let's get started, where's the copper plate sacrifice bowl?" Mrs. Cholchis looks up at Lord El-Melloi II, who shakes his head. "The hydra blood?" Another shake. "The harpy feathers? Griffin Hearts? Siren Hair?" The new teacher is looking visibly frustrated now. "...What a poorly stocked institute of learning. Luckily enough, I brought my own. So..." Waver suddenly coughs into his hand to get her attention"Mrs. Colchis. A word." El-Melloi calls the teacher out of the room, leaving the students to properly get acquainted with the new students. The bunch of them had all apparently come from Japan or somewhere, but it probably wasn't really that important where they came from, especially when it's somewhere as irrelevant as Japan. Nothing important to magic ever happens in that backwater! The apparent 'leader' of the group of new transfers was an overly confident looking kid, Shinji, he was flanked almost at all times by his sister, Sakura, who seemed way too clingy. Just like the other girl clinging to him. Chiyome. Finally, there was... the ginger kid, Shirou, who didn't look like he at all belonged, and finally, Rin. A lot of the younger boys in the class were very much interested in the three attractive girls that these new students brought with them, though the blue haired one, Shinji... He seemed to be way too popular with the ladies in the class, already he was attracting a few gazes from some of the more emotionally open girls. That bastard.The blue haired boy walks directly up to him, and smiles as he looks him in the eye. "Excuse me, but... your family... Are you suffering from a bloodline curse?" He just... He just went up and asked! That's... That's supposed to be a great secret of the Heydon family! How the hell does he know?! There's no point in denying it now, he thinks. "Well, yes, the Heydon Family were cursed two hundred years ago. But... why are you asking?"
"I was wondering if you wanted me to remove it for you, it seems like a nasty curse too, a curse on the magic circuits? Yeesh, your ancestors must've pissed off the wrong person to get something like this laid upon them." How... How the hell does he know that!? It's one of the Heydon Family's biggest secrets! At the age of 35, the magic circuits in any given magus born from the blood of the Heydon would combust, killing them instantly. It was how he lost his father six years ago and of course, he didn't tell his wife until a week before his death. A real class act. But... remove it? Ha! Fat chance, this bloodline curse is of the type that can't be removed, Roland had long since given up on the idea of getting it removed, they'd need something equivalent to an Authority over Curses to do tha-The black haired girl wearing a medical eye patch touches him once, and he feels a strange sensation in his body, he could feel the twisted embrace of the curse unravel in his body. To know that he was no longer guaranteed death at the age of 35, he could... hardly believe what happened. "What... What did you do?""I simply had Chiyome break your curse." The man shrugs. "It wasn't exactly a complicated curse, not for somebody who has taken care of divine exorcisms before." He smiles. "Now, Roland, let's get along, shall we? I'm Shinji Makiri, and you strike me as the sort of person who longs for a new world." There's a hidden layer of threat in his words. They aren't directed at him though, rather they are directed at the entire world. This guy... this guy wasn't just some random transfer student from Japan! This guy was genuinely dangerous, and what's more, he'd just effortlessly put him in a situation where he owed him a true debt! What the hell is up with this guy?! He offers a hand to shake, and his smile never falters the entire time. It feels like if he shook his hand, he'd be agreeing to a deal with the devil, yet even so he takes it.
"R-right, Lets get along, Shinji." There was really nothing else he could say. Roland had no choice but to try to keep an eye on Shinji, a guy like that... he was really dangerous, and both El-Melloi II and Mrs. Colchis seemed all too happy to just completely ignore the threat that he represented to their way of life, to the Clocktower's existence! Roland tried his hardest to keep and eye on Shinji and his subordinates over the next few weeks, but outside of Shinji effortlessly acing every single test given to him, he had no evidence of any suspicious activity. Shinji just... wasn't the sort of person to be found unless he wanted to be found. In fact, while he was thankful that he so effortlessly broke the curse that was on his bloodline, all that managed to do was spark his curiosity. He wanted to know more about Shinji and his allies, and consistently tried to amass evidence against what he perceived were a group of students with less than stellar intentions towards the Clocktower... He didn't even really want to stop them, he just wanted to join them. He didn't want to just be forced to stand to the side as these hugely influential people moved about. He didn't just want to be some footnote! He'd find evidence of their wrong-doings, by God he would!
>>4784325Clocktower Harry Potter arc is going to be so much fun!And nepotism rules!
>>4784325Nice.Damn Chiyome... we really owe gramps for this supply of reliable friends.
How about Shinji Makiri meeting with the rest of the Shinji's, Beast Shinji included.It's like Shirou meeting redman and Muramasa.Or better yet, Shinji and Zolgen being a family
>>4784325Finally caught up with the thread after bein busy for the past few hours. Having fun so far, hopefully you are also having fun writing these WhatIs :DI mean they are fun ideas. Pic is unrelated of course
>>4784332>Eva crossoverGet in the robot Shinji. Or Sakura has to do it again.(How would our Shinji do if he was thrust into the world of EVA anyways? I wonder how easy it’d be for our Shinji to make third impact just not happen)
>>4784337Shinji Saving Zolgen from madness could be fun
>>4784344Shit i dont even want to imagine what would happen. I just chuckle at the meeting between the two Shinjis.
>>4784337>Shinji giving Zouken a good end redemption arcWas there any way this could have even been done in-quest? IIIRC even in thread 0 niggas were like 'wormfuck gotta go, non-negotiable'
>>4784357Not without Justeaze.
>>4784337Shinji, Zolgen and Byakuya trying to be a family would be pretty funny.
>>4784369Shinji! You can't do that! You've changed the future! You've created a Time Paradox Reincarnator!
>>4784360hey QM, how would the carnival had worked if we refused to give our signature?
>>4784321>he was flanked almost at all times by his sister, Sakura, who seemed way too clingyBased and cute, now I'm even more excited for our Clock Tower adventures
I just remembered that maybe we should've had a skit where we kept arguing with all the ruler and conquerer servants about borders and strategy
So carnival over?What now?
>>4784325>Teacher MedeaI want it
>>4784399Well next one should be Wuxia and after that it's either harem date part 2 or highschool shenanigans
>>4784399Carnival not over.QM is write.
>>4784407QM made it based instead of fucking retarded
>>4784172>>4784407I was hoping somebody would pick up on it actually.EMIYA has been promoted to being a better suicide bomber than Okita Alter
>>4784407The nips really can’t stop jerking off to musashi huhJust fucking call her Grand Saber already, DW.
>>4784411I think its just Sakurai jerking off their waifu
>>4784387So am I, anon.>>4784390We'll probably be doing that in the main quest at some point.
>>4784412Wait isn’t sakurai the one who wrote that shitheap of a singularity, Septem?
>>4784410Hopefully not for long for either of them.
>>4784417Yes, notice a pattern?
>>4784412Doesnt Nasu write Musashi, since he also wrote the end of LB5 after Zeus, as a co-writer.
>>4784410We need to remember to also share our sword wiki info with EMIYA.
>>4784403Did you notice that it's Mrs. Colchis instead of Miss Colchis?>>4784409Sasuga WhatIs>>4784410>Archer disliked that
>>4784422He co wrote Olympus that I'm sure of
>>4784421Oh definitely, no wonder I felt like skipping all her dialogue. I guess musashi really IS just JP Nero like I thought she was.
>>4784424Sure did my man, and I hope we got Ceil to wed her and Shinji
>>4784428Seems pretty cruel unless we start dating Ciel too
Curious that Satsuki wasn't with us at class though.
>>4784431Ig QM is just using people that are 100% going
>>4784424I like that Medea just straight up brings long lost monster materials to her classes like it’s chalk or some paper
>>4784437Waver is gonna have a stroke before the year is over
>>4784437Well, that's just what a diligent teacher has to do to help the poor students of a school that's low on essential supplies. How else can she teach them?
>>4784410Does that mean he gets better severance pay?>>4784424It is perfection.
>>4784447So, today is just carnival?
>>4784455Just Carnival today, yes.It's a day of rest.Sakura Beast in Chaldeas coming up
>>4784442With her bo——
I missed the last thread due to work and there's too many posts to go through so i want to ask. Are we still following the proposed plan for the day or are we going to resolve all of the harem problems today?
>>4784458>With her boAh yes, Medea has actually undergone Shaolin training in order to properly teach Self Defence, she was embarassed at jobbing to Rin in another Timeline.
>>4784461You're still following the plan for the day, I think next up was your plan to get castrated by Tamamo.
>>4784465it'll heal no biggie
>>4784457>Sakura Beast in Chaldeas coming upYes!>>4784461I don't see any reason to deviate from the plan. We don't have to resolve the entire Shinjibowl in a single day, just the most critical ones.
"H-hello, I'm... I'm Sakura Makiri-Tohsaka, and I've been summoned as your... Beast-Class Servant? Is... Is my Onii-chan here?" The girl standing in the center of the summoning circle tilts her head and smiles at Ritsuka and Mash."W-wait a second... did you say... Beast-Class Servant?!" Da Vinci is actually doing their job for once, and ensuring that no Servants that are summoned to Chaldea are actually dangerous and potential threats to the whole operation. Which is a surprise, considering the sixty six Caster Gilles running about. Maybe she just got bored of running the scam shop. She slams an emergency button that was recently installed, allowing for an emergency physical sealing of any Servant summoned into Chaldea. The magically enchanted metal was as powerful as blessed divine metal, and would prove unbreakable for even the most powerful Servants. "Phew. Sorry, you two, but we can't take any risks when it comes to anybody who would introduce them as a Beast-Class Servant, that girl is an Evil of Humanity and..." A pair of soft looking hands suddenly puncture through the thick layer of magical steel, and easily rend through the metal as easily as one might tear through aluminum foil. "That wasn't very nice! I was just asking a question!" "Impossible! The magical enchantments were all... dissolved in an instant! What sort of a Monster is this girl?! That was designed to withstand somebody at Heracles' level of strength!"Hold on, Da Vinci, I... I don't think Sakura is a bad person, In fact, she's... She's a Sakuraface!" Ritsuka tries to calm Da Vinci down from doing anything rash, this girl obviously isn't hostile despite her status as a Beast. In fact, she might be just like Fou, a Beast of Humanity that is actually an ally to Humanity, but... why would she have been summoned as a Beast? Is that even possible? Well, it may have been a result of her Independent Manifestation, if she truly is a Beast."Excuse me, but what did you just say? What's a Sakuraface?" The girl standing in the middle of the now broken to pieces metal containment box. That box was meant to be able to contain the strongest of Heroic Spirits, and yet she tore through it like it was paper. This truly is the level of strength only available to a Beast."W-well, it's... a term that a girl called BB coined, actually, she... looks just like you." Ritsuka tries to mollify the girl, who already doesn't sound pleased by the term even existing."Oh. I see." The expression on Sakura's face is unreadable. "I don't remember giving her permission to use my name to create a term like that." Her voice is cold. "Sakuraface... So... she's not the only one, is she?" The previously friendly voice of the girl is as cold as a blizzard of ice tearing through a forest in winter. There's no doubt about it, this girl is way more dangerous than any of the other Servants that have been summoned to Chaldea. In fact...
>>4784465The fox fans have been telling me it'll be fine. I choose to trust them on this.
>>4784465She still need biological children. We are fine.She will just daterape us.
"Mash..." Ritsuka leans over to the light purple haired girl to whisper in their ear. "You... should probably go and warn Kama, Parvati and the rest of the Sakurafaces to... stay out of the way for a while, this girl... I don't know how she'd respond to meeting one of the people who share her face..." Ritsuka would very much prefer not losing any of her Servants to infighting because of the new Beast throwing a tantrum over her face being copied so much, resummoning some of those Servants would be a total chore. Ritsuka turns back to Sakura. "Well, your Onii-chan isn't here... but... why don't I lead you to your room?" This girl was going to be handful to deal with, Ritsuka could already tell. Already she knew that she was going to have a bigger headache dealing with her than with even Kiara.Ritsuka manages to eventually lead the girl out of the summoning chamber and down the halls of Chaldea. "This place is... so boring and sterile." The girl complains as she follows the Master of Chaldea through the plain and generic looking corridors. Ritsuka had to agree, the faux-sci-fi look of Chaldeas was a little grating sometimes, white plastic and white metal and white doors everywhere. Everything quickly goes wrong, however, when a certain Mesopotamian Goddess comes strolling haplessly down the corridor. She stops right in front of Sakura, blocking the path of the girl who already seems to be displeased by her presence. "Hold on... I feel like I know you somehow...? Not the vessel, but... you've got a familiar feeling to you. Like we're close as... Divine Spirits, mayb- URK" The last thing that Ritsuka was expecting was for a tendril like ribbon of shadow to materialize from nothing and lash around Ishtar's neck."Sakura! Stop!" Ritsuka is powerless to do anything to actually stop the girl, she looks down at her command spells for a moment, one of them ought to be able to stop Sakura, but she doesn't want to use one of them on the newly summoned Servant unless it's truly hopeless and there's no other way."This... I recognize this goddess, she's the same goddess who tried to possess Illyasviel back when I was alive, she was more than happy to try to erase the entire personality of the girl she was trying to take control of, and yet here I find you again. In my sister. Ishtar." There's an angry look in the eyes of Sakura, and Ritsuka can only watch and hope the situation manages to resolve itself peacefully."It's... A... Mutual... Arrangement!" The girl chokes out.
"...A mutual arrangement?" The Sakura's voice is even colder than it was when she heard about the whole idea of 'Sakurafaces' now. "You're the sort of person who would steal the body of an innocent girl and erase her personality for the sake of a petty grudge. Why would I ever believe you after what you did? When you're stealing the body of my sister for your own means!?" The eyes of Sakura flash purple, and unbelievably, she grows taller and a pair of very familiar looking horns start to grow out of her head. No..."Rin... Rin is in here too!" That seems to be enough to get Sakura to release Ishtar. Thankfully, this didn't all have to get violent after all. "No way... You're... You've got... Mother inside of you?" Ishtar recognizes the traits of Tiamat within the girl. "No... That... That shouldn't be possible.""I want you to understand this. The only reason that you're not dead right now, is that you're not my Rin. You're a Rin from another world, and somebody who my Rin would probably think of as 'expendable'. If you had tried to touch the people from my world, well..." Sakura gives Ishtar a fake friendly smile, and the Divine Spirit Pseudo-Servant takes that as her opportunity to scarper as quickly as her legs could carry her. "Sorry about that, Master, I just wanted to get some ground rules set!" She gives a happy smile at Ritsuka, and it sends a shiver down her spine. This girl... This girl not only has the full power of Tiamat at her disposal whenever she wants it, but... the ability to nullify any supernatural ability. This girl could slaughter everyone in Chaldea without breaking a sweat. She's more powerful even than the Beast II that was faced in Babylonia.Ritsuka could only hope that this girl truly was on the side of humanity. Looks like they might have to look into summoning her Onii-chan after all, whoever that is.
>>4784470She does need a wrangler thats usually Nero. Maybe someone else can fill in or we can beg Nero to fulfill her class feature and Save us.Our work with the fox may have been point raising and give us leeway if she was watching through its eyes.
So that's eight, can we get to ten?
>>4784470Nero makes it easier but you completely refused to talk to her >>4784480lets fucking do it, i wanna see super date part 2
>>4784484Nero must be really confused by the strange gathering she found herself in.
>>4784474That was beautiful. >>4784477Absolutely not. Nero will NOT be anyone's wrangler. We'll work it out by ourselves or not at all. It defeats the entire purpose otherwise. Wasn't that what we agreed with Sakura and Medea?>>4784480One can only hope, but with your usual schedule I see even a dozen or more as a possibility.
If we do get to Date Part 2, do you want me to update it for the new girls?
>>4784494they're entertaining, umu
>>4784494Yes. Maybe only new girls and Altrouge with Manaka?
>>4784494Some last minute adjustments to the plan would only make it more FUN.
>>4784494Actually, wait, better idea.
>>4784494Yes please. I’d love to see Nero get involved :D
>>4784497there are only like 5 new girls so it wouldn't be as hectic as last time
>>4784493I do kinda view Medea as pseudo Sakura wrangler amongst other things, as a clear hierarchy was more clearly rejected because of her as clear example and as an anti-competition focus.
>>4784495>>4784496>>4784497>>4784498Well, alright, time for SUDDENLY EVEN MORE LETTERS arrive.
>>4784504This is the only time romance isn't painful
>>4784474>You're a Rin from another world, and somebody who my Rin would probably think of as 'expendable'.Us and Rin probably taught Sakura the wrong lessons about NPCs
>>4784493honestly even if we don't want a competition or a hierarchy there's clearly going to be an unspoken one
>>4784503I think you and I have a very different definition of the word "wrangler">>4784504Didn't you say you have a better idea?>>4784507You mean the right lessons.>>4784510I believe that too. But running off to Nero to wrangle Tamamo is very much a spoken one.
>>4784499>>4784504Last date plan was great but I am a bit sad we might not get to a part where we punch Servants to death ourselves.
>>4784511It would've been ripping the ending of the original Ba-dump date too much, I realized how I could easily include even more hell.
>>4784513Wuxia should be next, I'm sure WhatIs can pull it off.>>4784514Looking forward to it
>>4784521Normal Highscool Day is up next.
>>4784526Ah, it must have moved up the poll and I missed it.
>>4784526Too lazy to go back to the old thread, does Shimousa have a chance?
>>4784526what about Eva update?
>>4784531Which one's Shimousa?
>>4784531Silly clown man shitting and pissing himself when things don't go his way before he gets CURSEBOTTLED will unfortunately have to wait.
>>4784537Something about seven swordsman iirc>>4784538
>>4784538Wait, her bottles are just another form of vore aren't they?Touche' Voreman.
>>4784540>Something about seven swordsman iircIt's #14. Maybe if WhatIs starts injecting caffeine?>>4784545And he still denies it.
>>4784309Looks like happy Sacchin = happy QM.
Its funny that the only character from FGO that could understand us would be riyo's gudako and maybe riyo's olga.
>>4784472>KamaRereading makes this one even funnier.
>>4784470It's fine, we'll just convince all the haremfrens, all the fluffy tail enthusiasts (myself included) and tell the obsessive fox she's too short for the Makiri ride.You know, we should tell hi to the people in Taiga Dojo, we haven't seen them in a while
>>4784569Shapeshifting says hello.
>>4784573 inb4 vored by giant Golden White Face
>>4784569>too short for the Makiri ride.You jinxed it, fool.
>>4784561Is this just Zolgen recognising a Sakuraface, or would I understand more if I'd played FGO?>>4784579She looks ready to eat that guy.
>>4784579>Amaterasu is pure sex.>She's a goddess so also a bitch by default.Any ways to take her power and give it to Tamamo?
>>4784579Amazing chest ahead!>>4784573W-Well, I wasn't talking in a literal way, but this works too, I suppose.
>>4784585>She's a goddess so also a bitch by default.Eresh was okay (prob even without Rinface cage>akasha slurry), and Amaterasu didnt do anything objectionable yet? We can hope.
>>4784585we can give her a concept but your guess is as good as mine as to what concept to give her that won't make her destroy the world
>>4784585I don't think Ammy is... that bad as far as goddesses go?Then again, I'm not exactly incredibly well versed as far as her myth goes.Go ahead, touch Tamamo's Conceptual Core, see what happens.
>>4784585Don't you think Tamamo is good enough by herself?>>4784592Never forget, Alcides was right.
>>4784595Amaterasu is actually pretty benign, or even benevolent, in myth. I am actually pretty sure Amaterasu by herself can be said to be, by conventional morality even, a better person than Tamamo. Both as a Vairocana Buddha (Thanks obscure Shingon Buddhism) and a just a person, who didn't do anything objectionable in myth? While Tamamo killed 80k soldiers who were sent after her when she was discovered and driven out from court, instead of just doing some magic and escaping. Makes sense as Tama is the aramitama of Amaterasu in Nasu, which is one of the 2 (or 4 depending on sect) souls or faces of a deity in Shinto. Aramitama being the "assertive soul", which is the one that comes out when deities are not respected or prayed to properly, and cease fulfilling their proper function and act disruptively until they are pacified by a priest. Not fulfilling their function as a natural object, that is.Just some info.
>>4784595>Go ahead, touch Tamamo's Conceptual Core, see what happens.We drown in fluffiness?
>>4784597There isn't really a "Tamamo by herself", she is a soul of Amaterasu in and of herself.
>>4784602I'd rather put our dick between her tits. If you know what I mean.
>>4784600>Amaterasu is gleefully bloodthirsty when interacting with Hakuno. Amaterasu had originally intended to eat Hakuno, but their refusal to be intimidated and sheer audacity impresses her enough to spare them and send them back to the present.>Amaterasu finds her one-tailed future self so utterly pathetic that she expresses the desire to reach through space-time and smite her after she's through eating Caster's beloved Master. The feeling is mutual, as Caster is disdainful towards her past self and went out of her way to avoid becoming her again even if she were to regain her full power. >>4784602>After Hakuno Kishinami touched Tamamo's origin, Amaterasu saw the future and decided to kidnap her future self's Master from the future spacetime to the past in the Age of Gods, during a dream-like state, ignoring any possible time paradoxes.
>>4784602ultimate fluffy bad end
>>4784602I'll just tell you that Hakuno doing something similar to Tamamo got him/her a visit to Amaterasu that dragged him/her hundred of thousands of years into the past.
>>4784583Nothing deep. Just a joke about host body recognising somebody from its life.>>4784585We talked about trying to give her Self-Control to overpower Amaterasu influence before.>>4784588Our very own sun...>>4784595Amaterasu is good deity. I think as far as gods in Nasuverse go she is among more benevolent ones.But bar is pretty low here as we all know and Alcides told us before.> Conceptual CoreWe`ll rub it. Gently.
>>4784609Why is nasu's Amaterasu so dickish?
>>4784611So you telling me we adding gods to the Shinji Bowl?
>>4784609>>4784611This is honestly such a fun way to get some extra preparation time.
>>4784615What is Alaya? She definitely isn't just a System anymore.
>>4784619I am not counting her until we interact directly with her.
>>4784618Anon, I don't think a meeting with a goddess who hates our fox wife and wants to eat us both counts as extra preparation.
>>4784615what do you think Tiamat is?
>>4784622Eresh is cute and based its gonna be great when we give her a thousand acres of land full of flowers and sheep
>>4784627I am just joking about few thousand years training arc to prepare for a confrontation with Manaka.
>>4784611So thousand year cultivator Shinji is still on the cards?
>>4784609I mean, we kinda have a track record with potentially being vored by extremely powerful beings. . .
>>4784622All hail Eresh, the better sister.
>>4784638That's just WhatIs getting off
>>4784633Just trying to make sure it really was a joke and we never actually do it.>>4784642That and Satsuki.
>>4784609>>4784614I also remembered something about Divinities potentially changing to suit the ideation of humans in a given Era. Where people value glory and stuff they are bloodthirsty, where people value peace and prosperity, they are benevolent and give prosperity.Something something their prayers are equal in Heat either way something something I forget the entire quote. I think it was the time travel scene itself, if you want to find an explanation outside of lolExtra
>>4784648I just realized this is lolExtra either way because how does this work if Amaterasu is above the time axis? Thanks.
>>4784642Maybe you shouldn't immediately start trying to befriend and bed the people who keep telling you they want to eat you.
>>4784651Amaterasu being above the time axis is very silly. Because if Gods of great enough power are above the time axis, how exactly does the Age of Gods ever end?
>>4784652Technically, we just try to befriend them. THEY want to bed US.
>>4784652"eat" is pref to eat as outcome
>>4784652It's just a figure of speech though? How could we know that the man eating monsters who have consumed hundreds of lives in the past actually intend to eat Shinji and that it's not just an innuendo?
>>4784652we're not fucking cowards QM
>>4784652 You gave us a perfect regeneration effect. Is this really a surprise? >>4784641I remembered something about Ereshkigal and Ishtar both being basically halves or bits of a greater Inanna God in nasu, so we may have to be content with beating up and doing something other than killing the Ishtar in the Reverse(god maid?) if we don't want to accidentally poof her out of existence.
>>4784660I didn't give you the regeneration ability so you could turn yourself into an all-you-can-eat limb buffet.
>>4784660We'll just tell Morgan to split the souls in the bottle. Ishtar gets a depowered maid puppet, Eresh gets a fully powered puppet. We never intended to kill her anyway.>>4784662And what about our addictive taste?
>>4784662Sorry Dad, we do with it whatever we want.Just joking, i don't want to be eaten by anyone without a good reason.
>>4784662And God didn't give humans an anus to stick a dick up it, your point is irrelevant.
>>4784662Are we paying a visit to Ars Paulina any time soon?
>>4784665That was because Truth is superior to everything else.It was meant as a deterrent for you to hang around the literal man-eaters more than anything else.It seems to have had the complete opposite effect.
>>4784665I thought that was our plan, we were gonna cut away her goddess powers too, Eresh is sweet so she is spared from this, Ishtar might get goddess privileges back if she behaves and Illya says its fine
>>4784672Did you really think that would work?I also don't want to be eaten for real.>>4784673Yep, that's exactly the plan. Though I do not support ever giving Ishtar her goddess priviledges back, it'll be up to Illya, not us anyway. I imagine she won't easily get bored of bullying her new maid.
>>4784673Eresh at one point in myth stripped Ishtar of all of her authorities. Just go down to Kur and have Ishtar pass through all 7 Innana gates and you safely transfer all of her Authorities to Eresh. This also leaves Ishtar naked, coincidentally.
>>4784672it went down hill when we kept feeding Sacchin the blood equivalent of heroin everyday
>>4784672That's not scary, that's hot.
"Good morning everybody!" Taiga strolls into class and surveys the students. There were... quite a few new arrivals in the class as of recent, but nothing too out of the ordinary. Something about the Heroic Throne highschool somewhere up north being over capacity? Taiga had never heard of the place, but it was apparently very prestigious and very selective about entry, so she was eager to prove herself more than capable of teaching even these private school kids. Though... there were something of a handful.Suzuka... Suzuka was always using her mobile phone in class and being a general distraction. Shuten had been caught sneaking alcohol into the school 16 times already, yet somehow things always seemed to get smoothed over and she wasn't expelled, she was a bad influence on Miho and Ibaraki. Arturia was a model student, at least. As were her two twin sisters, Mordred and Obeithion. The three of them together seemed to bring order to a chaotic class. Nobunaga was a complete Chuunibyou who was under the belief that just because her parents called her Nobunaga, she was the rightful ruler of Japan. A total problem child. Satsuki seemed like a nice girl at least, though she seemed to have a phobia about not being given the window seat.Most recently though was somehow Sakura managing to move up a year to be with everyone else in the class. Nobody seemed to question why this was done, but Taiga didn't really mind. Sakura must've just gotten really good grades, there was no mental charm in her head. She should stop thinking about the mental charm. STOP THINKING ABOUT IT. "I hope you all remembered your homework! You've all got to make your presentations with your groups about the English Novel that you choose to read! First up is..." Taiga looks down her list "Nobunaga-chan, Chiyome-chan and Suzuka-chan!" The three girls slowly come up on stage. "Now girls, which book did you decide to review? Nobunaga-chan, you were team leader so it was up to you as to what you chose." It was a fair system, Taiga thought. The team leader was the one with the most on the line, so they got to pick a book of their choice."The US Constitution." Nobunaga looks smug. "Of course, Chiyome was too busy doing her own thing, and Suzuka was no help at all, so I did the entire presentation by myself!" Oh good lord this can't be good."...What." Taiga wasn't expecting that, at all. Who the hell reviews the US Constitution for a novel presentation!?"For our presentation, I studied the US Constitution, and I have to say... 10/10, would implement a modified version into Japan when I take it over." Nobunaga confidently declares."Ah...hahaha, that... that was a joke, right, Nobunaga, you've... actually prepared a proper presentation, right?" This girl has way too much energy and time to devote to telling a silly joke.
>>4784677Ishtarin is completely harmless so she might not want to bully her>>4784678based
>>4784679>we kept feeding Sacchin the blood equivalent of heroinOh god, we really did.
"Ah, right, yes, give me a moment, I prepared a speech." Nobunaga quickly heads back to her desk and retrieves a sheet of paper that has way too many lines of text on it."Nobunaga-chan..." Taiga says with a tired voice. This girl reminds her of a younger version of herself, if she had twice as much energy and a fondness for a hat that no teacher was able to convince her to take off."My fellow citizens of Japan, I, Oda Nobunaga, have returned to you to lead our country into a brand new golden age! It will be hard to start, but with your support, we shall turn Japan into the Global Superpower that it was always meant to be! I have planned for a ten step plan to not only unify every region of Japan under us and our cause, but it goes beyond that as well! My plans cover the entirety of East Asia! Support me, my fel-""AHEM. OK! I think that's enough from your presentation, Nobunaga-chan. That was... something. However, it was supposed to be about a novel... so I... you know what, it was great. The three of you can return to your seats now." Nobunaga has a overly pleased look on her face as she returns to her seat. "Next up is..." Oh no. "Next up is Shuten's group. What... novel did you three decide to review?" Shuten, Miho and Ibaraki stroll to the front of the class. "Oh we did a lot of research for our book. Of course." Shuten reveals the book the three of them decided to review. "101 Mixers and other Alcoholic Recipes!" Nope. This isn't happening."Next!" The three girls look miffed as they walk back to their seats. "Did... Did anybody review a normal book? Arturia... please tell me you reviewed a normal book." Taiga basically pleads with the three twins."Actually, Miss Fujimura, we did. We reviewed..." Arturia's face suddenly scrunches up awkwardly, as if she doesn't want to say the next few words."Le Morte d'Arthur." Obeithion finishes Arturia's sentence for her. Oh. Finally, at least somebody decided to do something normal!"This book sucked. We all hated it... That's all we could come up with." Mordred smiles happily as she declares the entire review of the book to the rest of the class. Taiga didn't know what she was thinking or even what she was hoping for.Taiga feels her head hit the desk. This was going to be a long hour, she could already feel it.
>>4784684Maybe you could go into business as a blood dealer and get all the Dead Apostle Ancestors addicted to your heroin blood?
>>4784670Is this a pregnant edit?
>>4784688Or vore, take your pick.
>>4784689I prefer pregnant.
>>4784685>This book sucked. We all hated it... That's all we could come up withshit taste Mordred>>4784682>Sakura must've just gotten really good grades, there was no mental charm in her head. She should stop thinking about the mental charm. STOP THINKING ABOUT IT.Now i'm wondering who hypnotized Taiga and why
>>4784687Isnt one of the DAA a literal cursed forest
>>4784695Soon to be a Dryad simping to the BMC.Ainnash-chan!
>>4784693It's hard to give a good opinion on a book when the ending is the two people reviewing it killing each other.And Obeithion is there too.
>>4784685NOBUNAGA FOR PRESIDENT! VOTE NOBUNAGA! VOTE FOR SUPREMACY! VOTE FOR A GREATER JAPAN!That was great! I want more normal high students for the next carnival.>>4784687Let's just kill them. They don't deserve a taste of this.>>4784693We did. To have Sakura in our classroom, obviously.
>>4784695we're gonna burn it down soon with Ciel and Shiki
>>4784695One of them is a ghost.Wallachia is a living phenomenom Pretty sure Gransurg is birds.
Yknow what fuck it i could use a warmup sketchReply to this post with one (1) vorefag scenario idea
>>4784698Taiga didn't mention us being in the class >>4784697maybe Mordred shouldn't have killed Artoria
>>4784705She didn't. Morgan put an enchantment on her so her corpse stabbed Arturia after she was killed.
>>4784653Do you mean how did they let themselves die off or how did they not go back in time and fix it? First is probably Velber coming from Outside so it just enters the timeline and isn't part of it, and thus what kills them is basically fucking over their time shit.Second is that Divine Spirits which are left after are not Gods, but basically their ghosts who are vastly weaker and subject to planetary control. They were told to go and couldn't resist. But probably actual Gods may be alive in the Age of Gods but not in the Age of Man, concurrently. As the way time works already includes shit like Universe of Record and the Reverse, where time doesn't flow towards a fixed point which Merlin used to time travel on foot to Babylonia Singulo.The actual weirder part is how the fuck Goetia got defeated at all, as I don't think God blocked his clairvoyance. Introducing time shit was probably a mistake, but it was probably going to exist because faerie circles and fairies.
>>4784703are you gonna draw vore right now anon? Is that what you're telling us?
>>4784702He just really likes birds, ok. >>4784703
>>4784705She only mentioned the new students, which obviously doesn't include us.>>4784706It's all Merlin's fault.
>>4784702Gransurg is some dude magus who followed Crimson Moon in life and was turned in return for his services as one of the first DA thats not a TA blood bag iirc. Has some kind of magecraft based on the concept of birds as carriers of souls ala sky burials that basically completely fucks other DAs and undead.
>>4784706wait what the fuck really? I must've missed that part>>4784702is Birdman the one that's really good at killing other Dead Apostles?
>>4784712We havent attended school since we put a puppet in charge of doing that.
>>4784713isn't Gransurg one of Arc's followers? Merem Solomon is another
>>4784707It's not even going back in time to fix it.It's the fact that they exist ABOVE the time axis.So even if they all got killed at some point, they should be able to just... jump past that.
>>4784714https://typemoon.fandom.com/wiki/Gransurg_BlackmoreAn heroed when masutah sama disappeared.
>>4784715Puppet's still attending for us, we could go back there at any time and no one would ever tell the difference.
>>4784709Indeed, it wont be the first fate thing ive done>>4784711Tyler Durden and LIZ LOVE arent in this quest, sorry Lovecraftcatman
>>4784716Yeah. The weirder part is whats up with Gray's village now? Their anti ghost stuff was based on Gransurg and named themselves after him, but in that timeline he's dead.
>>4784718I assume we're going for the Tsuki timeline for DAs, or nothing makes sense.
>>4784719except for our lack of math skills
>>4784728We can metagame the math exam, don't worry.
>>4784718>He cooperates with the Mage's Association as Merem Solomon does with the Church, and he is currently imprisoned by the Church.Based, we're gonna meet him
>>4784728You run a multi-billion dollar megacorp.Your math skills are OK.
>>4784729sure, but when we enter chemistry we are gonna fuck up hard
>>4784722I guess if you want a recent option, the scene after Sakura from the carnival summoning finds the room they hid all the other Sakurafaces in?
>>4784703Can I order a Sakura-Tiamat eating Ishtarin?
>>4784717They don't know how to do timeshit or something is weird because Third Magic stuff says a Materialized Soul is also a higher-dimensional being so Arc and materialized fairies like Lugh should also be "higher-dimensional", which are true Heroic Spirit type higher-dimensional like Gods, I think?Tiamat's Sea of Mud is explicitly named as 4 dimensional pocket because Imaginary Numbers and Avalon blocks assaults up to the sixth dimension, for specifics. So it's ????
>>4784737>>4784717I just realized this also applies backwards. Age of Will humans have all the Magic shit, right? So why can't they time travel back or they don't want to?
>>4784734we can pretty easily pick it up Shinji is supposed to be a polymath that can get good at anything
>>4784737Oh, OK, so it's bad writing.>"Help! I've fallen, and I can't get up!"- Tiamat.
>>4784740quantum plot lock
>>4784735>>4784736I'll mix these twoPlease wait warmly, drawfags are now preparing
>>4784740That's how you get taken away by the Time Jannies.
>>4784743>The black mud is also included in Tiamat’s height. However, the mud is made of imaginary numbers, so her weight is unquantifiable.Meanwhile, Tiamat’s volume is infinite. In other words, she is a four-dimensional pocket.Yes.
>>4784747Yo just drop her down a 2km deep hole, that ought to work.
>>4784735>>4784736>>4784745I love you, bros. no homo
>>4784746Well then, it's a good thing we're on our way to own all of them.
>>4784751The time jannies are a fascinating allegory for the players that didn't want FF7 to be ruined by square's current faggotry, which is why they are shit on as the penultimate boss and then you fight Sephiroth at the end of Midgar.
>>4784748Time bullshit also happens in CCC (I think?) where BB repurposes the Moon Cell firewall to be infinite in scope so she has actual infinite amount of time to hack it and can also observe time from an overhead point of view like an actual higher-dimensional, but due to how time works she can't create new possibilities (branches) only select an arbitrary extant branch to pursue. Why this ends in her defeat is ??? I guess there was not one branch where she won originally so she played herself by not coming down into an observer position?Supposedly this is part of the "only those who partake in an era can decide its fate" thing is why Gil without Incarnation was a dick but not trying to end the world, and Incarnated Gil in fsn was trying to fix what he saw as deficiencies. As to how much sense this makes, I think I stopped trying to calculate that.
Well, time for Wuxia next.
>>4784754Final Fantasy is temporary, Nomura is eternal.
Also if were doing concept brainstorming later, ill toss this into the ring againhttps://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/AreteThank You Based Medea
>>4784767Arete fits Alcides best. I still say Mystery for Medea.
>>4784767I would like to float Theurgy for HSDW and Divinity stuff, Goetia for non-God based magic if her stuff needs a Foundation after Incarnation, or mágos as a word itself, as choices.
>>4784777Obviously yes, but we could offer her some ideas.
>>4784770Thank You Based Alcides also had a nice ring to it, tru
>>4784777>>4784778We have to ask her, but at the same inform her that Greek concepts would work best on her, so she doesn't shyly pick something as basic as "Wisdom".
>when the prompt says wuxia protagonist, but it's actually a xianxia protagonist.
>>4784794It’s all the same
>>4784793>Greek concepts would work best on herDo they? Compatible concepts work best, but compatible doesn't necessarily mean something unique from the same culture. Liberation for Enkidu and Self-Determination for Suzuka were the best possible, for example. We only used a weird concept for Vritra and mostly due to her unique circumstances, why push it on everyone else?
>>4784794I'M GONNA CULTIVATE UHHHHHHHHHHGHHHH MASS HUMAN SACRIFICES FOR 0.0005% POWER INCREASE
>>4784799>Self-Determination for Suzuka were the best possibleI dunno man, turns out JK would've been OP.
>>4784800THE UNPARALLELED SECRET EMPERORS ILLEGITIMATE SON IS GONNA CULTIVATE FOR 100,000 THOUSAND YEARS AFTER OBTAINING THE POWER OF GOD AND HAVING A BABY DRAGON DAUGHTER!?!!!!?! I actually had a stroke while typing this. Please send help
>>4784805Winnie the poo, hire this man.
>>4784805Xianxia is just OG chinese myths modernized. It has shit like"After 1,750 eons, each eon lasting for 129,600 years (3602 years), he attained Golden Immortality. After another one hundred million years of cultivation, he finally became the Jade Emperor (using the given figures, this period before his becoming the Jade Emperor lasted for a total of about 326,800,000 years.) "
>>4784805I had a stroke writing what you're about to read.
>>4784810The 3602 should be 360 squared but uh
>>4784799>Liberation for EnkiduIt wasn't btw. WhatIs confirmed that out of the ones proposed, my Sovereignity was the single most broken concept that could've been applied to them without changing their personality.
So, what carnival story has been your favourite thus far?The next one is just completely absurd.
>>4784824I wish you titled them at the start. I enjoyed sakura Tiamat, and shirou dying. I'll reread them all when you're done
>>4784822Not really, it was more a matter of what we would value more, Enkidu could break through any bindings as well as the bindings of others with Sovereignty, Liberation makes him unkillable, he can run away from death
>>4784828Titling them would've made sense, actually, but I didn't think of that at the time.And now it would feel weird to change.
>>4784822>most brokenPerhaps. But would it have made him happier than completely freeing him from the Gods' power to be with his pal forever?>>4784824Beast Sakura, with Clocktower infiltration a very close second.
>>4784830I just don't remember what won so at first I was like what the fuck is going on lol
>>4784829First Hassan is going to be pissed off to no end by Enkidu existing.
>>4784824Shirou using Slash Emperor was kino, shouldn’t have had DEAD END though and just had END like Sparks Liner High, Clock Tower was a nice prelude to Clock Tower infiltration arc, I also enjoy seeing how other people are terrified of Sakura, nice contrast to see since she's a sweetheart around us
>>4784824The Medusa one. Just reminds me of how we need to spend more time with her during our down-time.
>>4784837Yeah, it would've probably made more sense as an END but it's still a bad end because Manaka is unopposed.Then again, a Bad End isn't a Dead End.
>>4784824The Medusa and Clock Tower ones were the best I feel.
I awaken from my meditation. Hmmph, I had better take my Six-Fold Truth Reinforcement Pills and my Elixir of Jade-like Skill in order to continue refining my chi levels. I had long since disregarded my worthless magic circuits, and had them all transformed into chi pathways in order to reinforce my natural cultivation meditation exercise. I have long since surpassed the need to eat and sleep. My body can withstand the crushing power of even a dozenfold mountains stacked upon one another, with a brief movement, I can overturn rivers and seas, and my fists exceed the speed of light to a degree where I am able to strike my enemies fifteen seconds before I punch them. My Martial Skill is unmatched. I have spent Two thousand eons honing my skills through looping my mind backwards.I take a handful of the distilled Truth Strength Tablets and shove them into my mouth, granting me strength equal to an entire pantheon of gods, and I leave my small home. I had long since left behind the pursuit of money or happiness for myself. After hitting that parasite Zolgen with my Eighth Heaven Fist of True Death, I left Sakura to her own devices. She cannot follow me on my path of cultivation. Nobody can. The Grail War shall take place in four days, however, I feel I am prepared for such things now. My lifetime of pure training has prepared me more than anything else in the world could have. I activate my temporal relocation breathing, and reassert my existence into the timeline four days from now. I have already challenged each and every Martial Artist in the world, copying their skills. My ultimate technique, the Root Crushing Truth Fist, would see my victory in this war for certain. I did not need a Servant. I did not need to hold myself back. By disconnecting myself from the timeline for four days, I have successfully managed to distill 20 more spirit refining reinforcement tablets, which would have only had a quarter of an effect without the Six-Fold Truth Reinforcement Pills.Finally. I am prepared for this war. I start by punching a rift into space, creating an opening to deposit me in the center of the town. All Servants should be summoned by now. I activate my Discerning Meditative Trance, granting myself a complete image of the entire planet and everything within it. Every molecule and every atom, I see them all. The Servants cannot escape from me, I shall end this war before it begins.I teleport in front of the Lancer wearing blue, he does not even get a chance to react to my presence before he is hit with the Throne Returning Fist, immediately sending him back to the Throne of Heroes and bypassing the Grail entirely. I lightly tap his master, a woman whos name I have long since forgotten, and send her to sleep. She will wake up later with no knowledge of what happened. You move to your next target. Illyasviel von Einzbern's Berserker. A man who needs to be killed twelve times to die, each with a different method.
Punching him twelve million times in an instant however seems to have worked wonders, as he is destroyed entirely by the last blow, the already mythical Throne Returning Fist. Berserker is gone. I headpat Illyasviel before I use my excessive speed to locate my next target. I find him. EMIYA. The battle is over before it begins. With the forbidden scripture of Janitor Returning, he is forced to clean it up somewhere else, and is forcibly recalled by Alaya. My next goal for tonight is to meet my friend, Shirou Emiya, he too has started on the path of cultivation, yet his powers are only perhaps ten percent of my own. I taught him the Servant Incarnation Fist, so that he may be with his love. He notices me staring at him from a building fifteen kilometers away, and gives me a thumbs up. I return it.Next up are Medea and Medusa. I activate the Time Paradox Restoration fist, returning myself to a point in the past in which I can meet Medea. I give her the aid she requires and contract her as a Servant, before using the Servant Incarnation Fist on her. She is too weak and too slow to keep up with you. Medusa is also hit by the Servant Incarnation Fist. You'd use your jade-like charisma to seduce the two jade-like beauties, however, your time is limited, so for now, you must defeat your final opponent. The King of Heroes is not prepared for the sudden assault you bring upon him. I fly across the rooftops towards him, and immediately defeat him in a mental game of chess, proving your superiority to him before I hit each pressure point in his body sixty three trillion times each, causing him to fade from reality. I look up to the stars, and smile. It is time. I leap high, breaking away from the rules of the planet and texture. I find my target, the Machine God Chaos. Approximately four billion light years away from me. I appear before the Dyson-Sphere, before hitting it with my Three-Thousand-Million-Billion-Quadrillion-Googolplex-Fold-God-Slaying-God-Cutting-Void-Breaking-Universe-Sundering-Story-Breaking-Plot-Rewriting-Retcon-Fist.Mortal minds cannot begin to comprehend even a single aspect of the effect of this punch, so let me just tell you what happened.That punch did certainly destroy the Interstellar Navigation-Purpose Ultra-Massive Mothership Celestial Sphere Type Space-Time Fortress Chaos utterly, without a single sound.In other words.A God, Punched, Absolutely fucking wrecked.
I feel like I have commited a sing by writing that.
>>4784847Based, do more. That gave me a Chubby.
>>4784848> a singI have committed a sing
>>4784847>Constantly switching between first and second personI can see you had a stroke writing this. I almost had one reading it.
>>4784848Yes. Sing us more songs of chinese weebs.
>>4784848I'm beginning to actually worry about you.
>>4784855I wanted to get the true poorly translated xianxia novel experience.It's just a shame I couldn't turn everyone's name into some variation of Xi.
>>4784855It's just WhatIs' enlightenment leaking through.
>>4784859It's fine, the cultivation was just so powerful that I was phyisically attacked by it.
I'm never reading xianxia
Wait, I've got an idea for a bonus update.This update, but fed through google translate.
You still doing the super date?
>>4784862>phyisically I'm not sure it's fine, no.>>4784868I'm really not.Can you at least write one more before passing out from the shock of the crime you just committed?
>>4784847>With the forbidden scripture of Janitor Returning, he is forced to clean it up somewhere else, and is forcibly recalled by Alaya.You're going to kill me QM.
>>4784869Yeah.I hope you're ready for the TRULY AUTHENTIC experience for Xianxia.
I woke up from meditation. Humph, I'd better take my six-fold truth-enhancing medicine and my emerald-like elixir to continue to improve my qigong level. For a long time, I have been ignoring my worthless magic circuits and turning them all into air channels to strengthen my natural practice meditation practice. I have already surpassed the needs of diet and sleep. Even after a short period of movement, my body can withstand the pressing force of even a dozen mountains stacked on top of each other. I can subvert rivers and oceans, and my fist surpasses the speed of light, reaching the point where I can hit the enemy in fifteen seconds. Before I hit them. My martial arts skills are unparalleled. I have spent two thousand centuries honing my skills by circulating my thoughts backwards.I took a few bottles of distilled truth-strength pills and pushed them into my mouth, giving me power equivalent to the entire pantheon of gods, so I left my little house. For a long time, I have been pursuing money or happiness for myself. After hitting the parasite Zorgen with my eighth real death punch, I gave Sakura to her own device. She could not follow me on my path of spiritual practice. No one can. The Holy Grail War will happen within four days, but I am now ready for this kind of thing. The pure training of my life has provided me with more preparation than anywhere else in the world. I activated my temporal repositioning breath and reconfirmed my existence in the schedule four days from now. I have challenged every martial artist in the world and copied their skills. My ultimate skill is "Smashed Roots True Fist", which can definitely prove my victory in this war. I don't need a servant. I don't need to hold back myself. By disconnecting myself from the schedule for four days, I successfully distilled more than 20 refined enhancement pills. Without the six-fold truth enhancement pills, the effect was only a quarter.At last. I am ready for this war. I first rushed into space from a rift, created an opening, and stored me in the center of the town. All servants should be called now. I activated my keen meditation Tra, so that I had a complete impression of the entire planet and everything in it. I have seen every molecule and every atom. The servant can't get rid of me, and I will end this war before it starts.I was wearing blue and teleporting in front of the Lancer Lancer. Before he was hit by the throne, he didn't even have a chance to react to my presence and immediately sent him back to the throne of heroes, completely bypassing the Holy Grail. I gently stroked his master, a name that I had long forgotten, and then let her fall asleep. She will wake up later without knowing what happened. You move to the next goal. "Berger" by Illyasviel von Einzbern. A person who needs to be killed twelve times to die, each uses a different method.
>>4784847My Sides, Detached, Utterly Gone From This Plane of Existence
I feel like I need a calculator reading this
>>4784860You missed repeatedly reiterating something obvious, jobbing to random higher realm old man from nowhere and the classics of "It took a long time to say, but it happened in the time it took a spark to fly/an incense stick of time/the time it takes to make a cup of tea", "Cannot see Mt.Tai" and "They were merely frogs in a well/Always a Heaven above the Heavens" for the authentic experience
However, punching him 12 million times in an instant seemed to have produced a miracle, because his last blow-the fabulous Fist of the Return of the Throne, completely destroyed him. The Berserker was gone. Before I looked for the next target too quickly, I played Illyasviel first. I found him EMIYA. The battle ended before it started. The janitor was forbidden to return the Bible, he was forced to clear it elsewhere and was forcibly recalled by Alaya. My next goal tonight is to meet my friend Shirou Emiya, who has also started to practice, but his ability may be only 10% of mine. I taught his servant the incarnation of punches so that he can be with his love. He noticed that I was staring at him from a building 15 kilometers away and gave him a thumbs up. I refunded it.Next is Medea and Medusa. I activated the "Time Paradox" reduction punch and returned to the point where I could meet Medea in the past. Before using the servant incarnation punch for her, I will give her the help she needs and make her a servant. She is too weak and too slow to keep up with you. Medusa was also punched by the servant incarnation. You will use your emerald-like charm to seduce these two emerald-like beauties, but your time is limited, so now, you must defeat the ultimate opponent.The King of Heroes did not prepare for you to attack him suddenly. I flew towards him over the roof and immediately defeated him in a chess game, proving my superiority to him, and then hit every pressure point in his body sixty-three trillion times, making him from reality Fading in the middle.I look up at the stars and smile. it's time. I was eager to try and got rid of the rules of planets and textures. I found the target, the robot god is chaotic. It's about 4 billion light years away from me. I appeared in front of the Dyson sphere, and then rewritten with my three quadrillion Gourde-Gugepole-Fold-God-Behead-God-Cut-Void-Broken-Universe-Breakthrough-Story-Broken-Plot -Retcon-Fist.Moral thinking cannot even begin to understand one aspect of this shock, so let me tell you what happened.That punch indeed completely destroyed the Interstellar navigation-objective super-large mothership celestial fortress chaos without any sound.in other words.God, a punch, absolutely fucking ruined.
I feel like running it through a translator has only enhanced the experience.
>>4784883>God, a punch, absolutely fucking ruined.Powerful
>>4784885>enhancedNot exactly the word I would use, but it has certainly done something.
>>4784888It's the genuine Machine Translated Novel Experience now.
>>4784883>I was eager to try and got rid of the rules of planets and textures.hmmm
>>4784892If only you could be as based as Xianxia Shinji
>>4784894I'm sorry but my Dao is divergent, Fellow Daoist.
>>4784883>The janitor was forbidden to return the Bible.Ciel really is making the moves on him. Wont let him stop reading the bible.

>>4784876>reaching the point where I can hit the enemy in fifteen seconds. Before I hit them.This one was really funny to me for some reason.

>>4784911Everyone knows that shinji has learned the bottle eating mantra by now and added to his inner 5 level Chakra cultivation rhythm by now qm
So... Badump is the last one... probably.

>>4784929You fucker im still waiting on the Eva crossover
>>4784929Hoo boy. So how sore do you think Shinji’s pelvis will be? My bet will be 50 times more sore than the last time
Wait, do you want this to be Waterpark Redux or The original date plan?
>>4784929>probablyI believe in you, you can do one more!
>>4784931And I’m still waiting on Shinji getting transported into an otome game, though that is presuming this is truly the last one for today
>>>>4784935Origanal date plan
>>4784883>I refunded it.harsh.
>>4784935I thought we'd be doing the original plan, as per Carnival Phantasm conventions, but whatever you think will be funnier.
>>4784935Original date plan
>>4784935original date plan
>>4784935I want waterpark but everyone else is voting for the OG plan
>>4784842Send help, my stroke is a full body-soul separation

>>4784950don't really know what the difference would be with the waterpark except a few extra girls to play capture the flag using us
>>4784754Final Fantasy has the Sequel Police now?
>>4784957So I take it you know nothing about how the FF7 Remake turned out?
>>4784957No, you kill them.FF7 ends with the early game party killing destiny and then fighting Sephiroth.Also Zack Fair gets resurrected because he's a fan favourite character.
>>4784957do you not know about the time ghosts?
So far, today I have written 11,196 words.Which is enough to classify as a Novellas worth.
>>4784953NOI don’t wanna join shiny pants and his magic children’s card game gay baby jail
>>4784961>>4784965Nope, couldn't seem to get around it. Didn't they stretch it out so that each disc is a separate title?
>>4784985>Each discNope.Worse than that.You don't even get out of Midgar before the game ends.The INTRO is a game all by itself.
>>4784962Interesting. Deviations are bigger than I thought.Anyway, thanks, sorry for off topic.Awesome job, OP
>>4784982how the fuck did you even write this much
>>4784991>Deviations are bigger than I thought.The entire game was all just justification for the next game to go completely balls to the wall.>>4784992Carnival
>>4784982Damn, hadn't realized kissing Satsuki would invigorate you so.>>4784985The released game ends as you leave Midgard. And they Remade the story, various things change, and there are a bunch of time ghost jannies who intervene to try and force the story back on track until you kill them and resurrect Jack at the end.
>>4784997Still reeling from Xianxia Shinji
>>4784982So I should shill Satsuki more then?
>>4784997Let us know if you're ever getting story burn out in case you want to bring a carnival forward. Or just take a day to yourself

>>4785095>>4785096>>4785099>>4785101it'll be back to normal once the carnival thread is over dw
>>4785110Don't you have some jobbing to be doing, Cu?
>>4785113>wanks about Honor>Uses two cursed, concealed spears in combat>cucks Master in both livesIt was under Kirei's command spell! doesn't count
I wanna see what Billy's up to.
>>4785118I want to go the place listed on your ID.
>>4785121Cu loses to Diarmuid outside of Ireland by WoG.
>>4785118I want more Ayaka screen time! She's a protagonist as much as Shirou and Shiki is, poor girl...
>>4785126But is he kino?
>>4785130You see, Cu only brought one stabby boy to the fight, where Diarmuid brought two.Gilgamesh brought all of them, so he's the strongest.
>>4785136The moment Cu uses Gae Bolg is the moment Diarmuid dies.The both have E Rank Luck, so no bullshit diceroll is gonna save Mr Deermud.
>>4785140YAMEROOOOOOOONo but it's mostly because Deermud is a fucking busted Servant when it comes to melee.A+ Agility and B rank EotM (True)The Cuckolder is decently strong in a straight up fight.
>>4785117Not his fault he doesn't have a big fuck off NP like a ton of characters. He has to fight like guerilla warfare in order to stand a chance. Seriously, if we lost our chance to save him for good when we killed him again I'll be mad.
apparently in universe they tried making a HGW in Greece but Magus kept killing each other over who gets Heracles, so they had to ban him as a summon, but then they killed each other over who got to summon Achilles
>>4785146Why not just fucking ban greekoid Servants like the Fuyuki Grail is supposed to ban Japanese Servants?
>>4785145We will save him and he will be our first and only male servant.
>>4785142Cu needs to actually get the chance to use Gae Bolg first.
>>4785142If he stabbed him in the arm with yellow spear like he did Saber he could win I suppose. Cú wouldn't NP at the start usually.
>>4785122sorry, I'm not renting.
>>4785145he's fine, we killed Lancelot already and he came back>>4785147honestly America makes sense as a setting for a HGW, very few if any certain would get a boost there since its a new country with few historical and mythological figures to take from
>>4785153George Washington (Berserker) or Thomas Jefferson (Caster) would be extremely overpowered I would imagine.
>>4785159Whoops I mean Ben Franklin (Caster) Had a bit of a mix up.
>>4785143He's gimped as a lancer too. F/Z rerun event through WoG states he can switch class at will given enough mana. I wonder if Manaka knows this?He's forever gimped in a class container though. Needs to have access to Móralltach and Gáe Dearg simultaneously to not be in jobber mode.>>4785145He does as a Saber.
>>4785151I could say the same thing to Deermud since Gae Bolg has the same ability as Gae Buidhe.
>>4785163Yeah Diarmuid as a Double Summoned Saber/Lancer would be busted since Morantach is basically Gae Bolg in sword form.Actually that begs the question, can you fuse servants if you have enough mana/command seals?Like say for example in FGO you summoned Fionn Mac Cumhaill as a Lancer. Then you summoned him again as a Caster.Can you, theoretically, use all three command seals to fuse them together to get a more complete version of a servant?
>>4785169I get around this in headcanon via either True Incarnation or an Alterego of the self
>>4785169>>4785163Well, what concept will allow him to multiclass?People already said they'd give him luck, for obvious reasons, but if he could use any of the 4 weapons at will would be ideal.
>>4785178Morphing Time.Still reeling here.Update shortly.
>>4785178Completeness.That should be a concept that would allow him to become the Complete Diarmuid Ua Duibhne with access to all his Skills and Noble Phantasms.
>>4785169Saber Diarmuid also has his Love Spot sealed, not that we need a concept to give him a bit of plastic surgery with Chiyome around.His Mana Burst Yeet is practically teleportation/flight too.Omnibus? Adept? Protean?
>>4785131we'll both have to wait until next carnival it seems.RIP Billy, your chance will come one day
You feel like you've been standing in this exact same spot for just over a month, and you look Gilgamesh in the eyes before you give him your answer "No thanks, Gilgamesh, I... 'll handle this myself. I appreciate your offer, but... this is something I need to handle by myself.""Very well." Gilgamesh goes to leave the room, before he turns back to face you slightly. "Outsider... That's hell you're walking into." With those parting words, he leaves you. You look over the plan, looking for any errors in it. No... This... This should work fine. As you agonize over the plan, deciding on any last minute changes, Shirou comes in with a happy smile on his face. "Hey Shinji! Look! I found some more love letters addressed to you!""...Shit."There's no use in just continuing to agonize over this extended method of suicide by overwork. You'll... You'll just have to get it done and hope for the best.The day arrives, and you prepare yourself mentally. No matter what happens here, you're prepared. First off, Shuten. She's not exactly a morning person, but she perked right up at the idea of morning drinking. Little Drunkard indeed. "Come, on, Shuten. Let's go inside, you can have a few rounds, and then...""That's right, we'll share a few rounds! Right?" Oh. This... This isn't good. You gave yourself a small amount of leeway here, but..."Sure! Right! We'll share a few rounds!" You don't want to make her suspicious, though you don't think downing 4 cups of sake was a good idea for your ability to function in the long run. You eventually sneak away using the excuse of needing to go to the bathroom, thank god you already paid for her potential tab before you came here with her. You sneak out of the bathroom window like a silent assassin, and you don't just break the window and then fix it with magecraft. That's definitely not what you did.You're already 6 minutes behind schedule, but you can make it to the Zoo from here. Mordred won't have to be kept waiting. Everyone else should already be inside, you already got them their own tickets.You bump into Mordred right outside the Zoo! Yes! Back on schedule! "Hey Mordred! Let's check out the petting zoo! There's bound to be a lot of cool animals in there!" You don't even give the king any time to respond before you take her by the hand and start to race through the zoo, all the way to the petting area. You're not out of breath yet, you've done way too much physical exercise for something like this to slow you down. You feel horribly guilty as you watch Mordred slowly hesitantly reach down and pick up a bunny rabbit, before slipping out the door. You really wish you didn't have to do that.
Immediately after disappearing from the Petting area, you meet Rider just outside the reptile house. You like Snakes, so it's kind of a disappointment that you won't be able to stick around for any real time to look at them with Rider, or indeed, to look at one of your favorite snakes of all, Rider. She seems too busy watching the animals to notice as you slip away and out of a side exit. As you leave the side exit, you manage to bump into Sakura. Ha! Perfect timing! Let it never be said that you aren't a genius of planning!"Onii-chan? I was just looking for you." Sakura sounds a little bit concerned, however, your confident smile seems to dissuade her nerves a bit."It's fine, Sakura! Let's go to the gift shop, shall we? We might be able to find a few neat souvenirs of this place." Sakura nods and follows you to the gift shop, which is thankfully very close by. "Ah! wait here, Sakura, I just realized I need to get some money out at an ATM!" You're about to flee Sakura, until you feel her hand grab onto yours. "That's OK, Onii-chan! I brought some of the allowance you give me along with me!" Sakura doesn't let go of your hand all throughout your visit to the gift shop, and the two of you look through all sorts of souvenirs, plush animals, snow globes, a toy tranquilizer gun... You wonder how much tranquilizer you would need to drink to put yourself in hospital for a day. Eventually, after buying her a ginormous plush penguin, Sakura lets your hand go."Ah! I think I must've dropped my wallet somewhere outside! Sorry I gotta go look for it immediately!" You sprint away from Sakura as quickly as you can. Of every woman on this date, it turns out that she was the most dangerous of all! You sprint all the way to the coffee shop and by the time you meet Medea, you might've started panting if it wasn't for Sakura forcing you to ruin the entire schedule by holding your hand."Master, are you OK? I've been waiting for you to show up for nearly half an hour! I'm already on my third cup here! "Sorry, Medea... I just got... caught up in some things.""You know I can scry on you whenever I feel like it, right, Master?" An awkward moment passes between the two of you as Medea looks you in the eyes and you stare back at her.
You remain staring at her as you slowly get off the chair you're sitting on. "Aha! Well, you see... the thing is...!" You pretend like you're going to explain your actions to Medea, before you just sprint off as quickly as you can. You still need to meet Touko at the other coffee shop! It doesn't take long to reach the other coffee shop, and there chatting pleasantly with each other about something impossible to discern from this distance is Touko and... Medea. Damn it! She did that on purpose! Well, Touko's a bust, you'll just have to meet Arcueid, she should be at the primate enclosure. You begin to race towards Arcueid's most likely position, though just as you're about to finally reach the monkey enclosure, you feel a single hand lift you up into the air."My Sweet Rider! There you are! I've been looking for you all over the place! You promised you'd meet me outside the penguin enclosure!" Vritra looks annoyed, her open frown showing off her shark like teeth. "You were just playing weren't you? Seeing how long it would take me to track you down on scent alone!" Oh god. This is bad. If you don't manage to get out of Vritra's grasp and get back to the schedule then... "And all those other girls too! This was supposed to be our special day together, wasn't it, my Sweet Rider?" Shit. "Well, you see I... I wanted to... Uh..." You fail to come up with a suitable excuse, and even though she puts you down on the floor, Vritra forces you to hold her hand as she basically drags you around the park. There's no escaping from her unless you cut your arm off, and considering that this is a man-eating dragon in the form of a human woman, that's... almost certainly not going to go well for you. And so, the plan absolutely entirely falls apart because of the whims of the dragon that personifies... obstacles. Oh. Well damn. Somehow you feel like you should've seen something like this coming, but at the same time, you didn't have any possible way to see something like this coming. The hours tick away. With each few minutes that go by, another obligation is fumbled. Another girl notices your absence. No! Damn it! Damn it! Damn it! Eventually, Vritra feels it fine to let you walk around without any more hand-holding, but by that time, it's much too late. You'll just have to go home a failure, and face the music. You're dreading the return home, and Vritra is forced to sling you over her shoulder to get around your utter refusal to walk back home of your own accord. You won't walk in there of your own accord, only death awaits you there. Vritra walks into your home with you still slung over her shoulder, and you look up to see the disappointed faces of many women. Disappointed, but... not angry? What's going on here?Surprisingly, it's Sakura who explains things. "Well, I was the one who proposed this, so I suppose I can't be too mad that I didn't end up winning it, even if I was certain that I would..." Sakura still sounds more disappointed than angry.
"Wait... proposed what, Sakura?" You don't quite follow."It was a competition we were planning on Valentines day. We all know what sort of a person you are, so we decided to come up with a way to... make things a little more rewarding for us. So the person who spent the majority of Valentine's day with you... would... uhm... get to spend Valentine's night with you..." There's a blush behind Sakura's disappointment. Everyone... Everyone agreed to this?! What the hell!? "Well... Sakura, seeing as you were in second place... I wouldn't mind sharing Shinji with you..." Vritra gives the girl a suggestive smirk. Wait! Wait what the hell?! No, seriously! You didn't sign up for this! Wait! Stop! Wait! Why are you being carried upstairs?! Did Sakura just nod?! Did she really just agree to Vritra's offer?! Well... all things considered... this probably could've gone much worse. In some ways, this is more like a reward than anything else!
>>4785200LOL based, thanks
Turns out the conceptual obstacle really messes stuff like this up.Whoever could've seen that one coming?
We did worse than Shirou and Shiki did but still did better than them
>>4785200>Vritra, a dragon, is sharing with Sakura, host of a Mother Dragon.gotta look out for each other.
Well, that brings us to the end of the Carnival unless you just want me to continue the Carnival into tomorrow.Also post ideas if you do.
>>4785220arguing with all the conquerors and kings about who gets what country
>>4785219it actually makes a lot of sense that Vritra is on team Sakura now
>>4785220>unless you just want me to continue the Carnival into tomorrow.Godzilla vs OrochiIzmaylov Interlude
>>4785220Please do continue.Once again my idea is:Shinji gets transported into an otome game. Also >>4784931This anons idea of the Evangelion crossover.
>>4785227Ha, you remembered that off-hand comment, did you?
>>4785220Billy's fun time at a carnival, shooting down targets for prizes.Medea meets the other argonauts after Jason's ship is complete for real.Sakuramat meets medusa and such.Savior-Shinji in the lostbelts/finally summoned after sakuramat!
>>4785233Damn straight. I wonder what the russian bastard is up to.
>>4785220I'd rather we get back to the story, I'm curious what that building has inside. Also there's still a ton of stuff left to do in just one day.
>>4785220yeah story sounds better, we might run out of Paradox Carnival one shots at this rate
>>4785242There's always more oneshots.
>>4785195>PenguinMeltchads rise up.Are we feeding Leviathan-tan to Sakura?
>>4785220I want to go back to the story.
>>4785220Story, save them for later or they might lose their novelty.Story is a pseudo-carnival atm anyway
>>4785257>Story is a pseudo-carnival atm anywaythis.
>>4785246The sakura 5 aren't even snatching her body, they're just the AI fragments that are able to be summoned because LOL connections!Out of all the sakura5 to survive, it's probably Violet and Kingprotea.Kazuradrop is an instant death.BB has a 10% chance, maybe. She would hope.Melt is a difficult prediction.
>>4785257oh yeah that too we're in the middle of our break day
>>4785259If you're thinking about which of the Sakura 5 Sakura would dislike, she'd probably not be happy with the fact that Violet is made out of Medusa.Also you forgot Passionlip.Damn that Presence Concealment A+.
>>4785270Since B.B is around, will we meet the Alter Ego's eventually?
>>4785270Violet might get to live just because she has the medusa composite.>>4785269Passionlip is too precious to be in the danger rating. I want her to be happy and safe and get a fucking SUMMER COSTUME
>>4785280Well... something something BB Catalyst to Imaginary Number Space something.The answer is yes, if you try hard enough.>>4785270Oh, and as for the non Sakura 5, Parvati and Kama are totally screwed.
>>4785286kama is going to be obliterated, parvati might have a quicker end since she's at least respecting the body if at least in a miniscule way.
>>4785286>>4785282I mean, maybe we could use concepts to grant her greatest wish.Can you imagine not being to touch stuff without breaking it? What a nightmare.
>>4785290Just have Morgan give her BB or Sakura's Selfmod or Self Seal skills. She doesn't even need a concept, just a toggle option.
>>4785290Actually she probably wants both so she can also toggle off Masochistic Constitution.
>>4785290You probably wouldn't even need to use concepts, just get a few of the Servants on it.
>>4785290BB is a terrible mother.It's no wonder most of her kids want to murder her.
>>4785297I mean, we're trying to get her to be a better person.Maybe she'll eventually try to help them. Hopefully.
>>4785297Kazuradrop should have been aborted. Imagine making your hard counter and then mistreating it.
Anyway, what is left to do on this day?I think meeting with Tamamo was next?
>>4785297Solid 500 posts out of the carnival so far WhatIs. With no vote spam or autism planning either to pad it out. Good stuff, dab on /qtg/
>>4785290What's Passionlips favorite movie?Edward Scissorhands
>>4785335could you not
Its Ciel's birthday, kinda feel bad she hasn't gotten more stuff to do
>>4785347Happy Birthday, Ciel!Wonder how she’ll get along with Nero.
>>4784842>>4784847Absolutely beautiful.>>4785200Dragon solidarity.>>4785220Maybe special one for Ciel since it is her birthday and back to story?
>>4785092Not exactly what I was expecting, though I'm not really sure what exactly I was expecting.>>4785200That was nice. Perfect one to end the Carnival on.>>4785207>the conceptual obstacle really messes stuff like this up.Sakura was where the plan went really wrong, Medea completely derailed it, and Vritra blocked our path. Somehow, this feels very appropriate.>>4785220Nah, let's go back on track. There's always next time. As for ideas, have you found the old ones?And damn man, 11 updates in a single day.>>4785310Yes it was. After our mystery investigation date with Satsuki which will be fun and relaxing and totally not work at all.
>>4785463I wonder if he slept.Seemed to clock off at a more normal time and no posts since. Carnival might function like a large meal for the writejannie
>>4785474Yeah, he must have done very little other than write at a regular pace yesterday. Satsuki sent his motivation through the roof, Canival must have been nourishing for the writefag's soul.
>>4785463¯\_ (ツ)_/¯i thought i was pretty clear with the vorefag prompt request, dunno how people would misunderstand that
>Master, Master! Hawawa, that, that person is no good! Not good at all, that Aloha Luluhawa BB-san! It's trivial whether if it's the real thing or something borrowed, if you can don't ask for the reason, or Master's SAN will Shine and it'll be a real pinch! B-b-but but, please don't worry. If it comes to worse, I'll burn her! I'll 『inci-nerate』 her in a burnable trash day. Please leave Chaldea to me!

>>4785515Made for strangling it's not a fetish I swear>During the An Lushan Rebellion, as Emperor Xuanzong and his cortege were fleeing from the capital Chang'an to Chengdu, the emperor's guards demanded that he put Yang to death because they blamed the rebellion on her cousin Yang Guozhong and the rest of her family. The emperor capitulated and reluctantly ordered his attendant Gao Lishi to strangle Yang to death
>>4784842>>4784847>>4784876>>4784883Holy fucking based

>>4785524>it's not a fetish I swear
OK So uh... what was the winner of the last vote?Also I guess I need to make the thread 34 OP image now, just to satiate my autism.Anybody have any suggestions for background?
>>4785540Also, Camelot movie is on youtube for now.Timestamped a very important part for everyonehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nI-S8a9Sxk&t=2668s
>>4785540>OK So uh... what was the winner of the last vote?I think it was checking the building with Nigger`s write-in.>Anybody have any suggestions for background?Something smug.
>>4785547>Humans cannot become GodsWell that's a load of fucking bullshit right there.
Waver using Zhuge Liang can force incarnate Saint Graphs to make people pseudos btw. Happened to not skipchad that part of Case Files event.https://typemoon.fandom.com/wiki/Chu_Shi_BiaoI'm curious as to who would get vored by Shinji as they try to enter his mind>>4785555You're not meant to listen, just watch the poorly drawn delicious brown
>>4785549Can somebody backlink it?I'm kinda feeling too lazy to open up the last thread.
>>4785567I'm voting Zuo Ci if its based on 3 Kingdoms dudes
>>4785572Interesting that I get the (you) even cross-thread.>>4785574Waver is in complete control of mr. overworked to death too. Cultivatormaxx Shinji will become reality soon enough.
>>4785574Shinji that accepted raping Sakura early on would have picked Chad Gong no question I imagine. No victory without sacrifice.
>>4785567POV: you just entered Shinji`s mind
>>4785577Good thing that you do it for the (you)s then.>>4785578Would have been a very different quest, no doubt.
>>4785574>Zuo Ci studied atop Mount Tianzhu, practiced medicinal alchemy and nourished his vital essence by controlled breathing and Taoist sexual practices. It is said that he could live for long periods without eating. He was also learned in the Confucian classics and in astrology.>>4785579I wonder how a guy who cultivates through sex would do with 15+ wives and a head full of metaverse doujin smut?
>>4785574I kinda wish we got more Three Kingdoms dudes and Lu Bu got to show up as a non-Berserker. FUCKING GIVE ME CAO CAO YOU FUCKS.>>4785579Entering Shinji's mind is a good way to be erased if he doesn't like you.
>>4785584WhatIs told us that Ciel has unlimited stamina.>>4785586Wasn`t Tamamo also counted as Daji?
>>4785586>FUCKING GIVE ME CAO CAO YOU FUCKS.I see you are a man of taste as well.Not that there was ever any doubt.
>>4785593So does SHIKI
>>4785595>We will never get to see based Cao Cao shit on Qin.Fuck...
>>4785602Cultivator Shinji making SHIKI female with something out of Gil`s vault so he can cultivate through sex twice as fast.
>>4785606New carnival sequel already sorted
>>4785593A part of Tamamo was Daji, another part was the tomb guardian Yin Dragon of the leylines (dragon line protecting shen) of Huangdi's Tomb. She is. . . very syncretized.
I just realized I should have written an outro with the Neco-Arcs.I don't know if it's needed though, they'll be back fast enough.
>>4785653What can possibly be ominous about those adorable critters
"Satsuki... Hold on, I've... spotted something unusual, we won't be heading back home just yet after all. There's something that... appears suspicious about that building over there. Almost like a bounded field... Whoever set it up... they don't appear to be the sort of person to really be all too bothered about being found. It's either a magus without much skill in bounded fields, a magus who wants to be found or... something else. Something worse."OK, Shinji-kun, I'm ready!" Satsuki sounds confident in herself as you turn off of the road and find a place to park, there's thankfully an open space not too far away from the building, and upon parking up, you quickly get out of the car. You hold Satsuki's parasol for her as the two of you briskly walk down towards the building, not wanting to be in the sunlight for longer than you have to be.'Chiyome, where are you right now?' You mentally reach out to the ninja girl, who is rapidly becoming somebody able to contend with Medea for the spot for most reliable Servant.'I am waiting patiently at home for your orders. I... did not wish to breach your privacy by eavesdropping on your affairs of love, not without your express permission to do so.' Chiyome's loyalty is once again admirable, that somebody shadowing you is also trying to respect your privacy is... a little odd, but you accept it. You can understand why she wouldn't want to do so, she's clearly doing her best not to upset you in any way.'Well, I'm about a five minutes drive from the house right now, so I'm going to need you to keep an eye on my location at...' You inform the girl of your current location, just outside the suspicious looking building. 'I'm going into this building, so I'll keep in contact. If I really need you, I won't hesitate to use a command spell, keep the others informed, Medea especially, if things go wrong.' You explain your plans to the girl. You would've made contact with one of your other Servants, but this is actually supposed to be a day of rest for you, and they'd be less than pleased for you going off and doing something that could be considered work, which is why Chiyome's absolute loyalty is something you're counting on here.'Understood.' Chiyome gives a simple response, and you shut off the mental link to the girl.You take a look at the clearly magical building, before you take a deep breath and head inside, you have no idea just who or what is going to be inside this place, but... you feel the need to check it out for yourself. You push open the unlocked door, and begin to creep up a stairwell as quietly as you can. Satsuki is sticking close to your side, to an onlooker, it might look like she's clinging to you for safety, but that's not entirely true. She's actually clinging to you for your safety, so that she can move you out of the way if anything shows up that might be a possible threat.
>>4785660Do not let their appearance fool you. Neko-Arc is a cunning creature that seeks to take over the world
Eventually the two of you reach the top of the stairwell, which leads to a single door left ajar. There's definitely something going on here, and... despite the feeling of magic in this place, you haven't really uncovered any bounded fields at all, could you have been mistaken? Pushing onward, you enter the room beyond the door and look at the room before you, it's in... an unexpected high quality state. Where you would've expected the building to be a run-down mess from the outside, this small room looks like something far too opulent for the building. The walls are unblemished and decorated with engravings, the bed is a fancy looking four poster, the wooden floor is of maximum craftsmanship and covered with expensive looking rugs. The window is open, and you see a few crows sitting on the window sill of the house, apparently not having noticed your arrival into the room. There's definitely something weird going on here... You look at the crows with curiosity, before the noise of something heavy hitting the ground makes you turn your head away.You turn to look at Satsuki, but then you realize that it couldn't have possibly been her. When you turn your head back towards the crows, they've all gone. They must've been startled by the loud noise. But... who could've made the noise, if it wasn't you or Satsuki? A coincidence, or is there somebody else in the house? Your questions are answered when the door to what appears to be the kitchen opens up, and unbelievably, out comes..."Bazett?!" The woman looks startled by your presence in the house, and almost jumps back in fright."O-oh! It's... It's you! Finally! Lancer has lost his mind and has taken me prisoner! You need to help me get out of here before he gets back!" Bazett looks worried, but... something is definitely wrong with this situation. You can't quite place it though...>"Come on, let's get out of here, Bazett.">"I don't trust you.">"How do I know I can trust you?">"Where's Lancer now?">Write-in...
Oh, fuck. That's DEFINITELY work.And that's definitely someone meatpuppeting Bazett, but I have no idea who it might be.
>>4785672Does the image have eyes more red for her than normal?
Or maybe this is all an illusion by Caster CuOdin? Dammit, this was supposed to be a day of rest.
>>4785683Crows appear in CasCu's images, so probably something related to that. Maybe someone was just knocked out and that fell to the floor, that was the sound? I guess it could be someone possessing Bazett, but not being able to operate two bodies at once.
>>4785686 It could also be OdinCu leading us here to rescue Bazett from something, and isn't being antagonistic just manipulative, with the crows here being a kind of signal? Since he should know its super obvious.
So much for the day of rest.
Bazett is possessed by Morrígan?Morrígan wanted Cu for herself and used this chance and Command Spells Bazzet had to get him?Let Satsuki use her RM, we CS Chiyome to us and subdue Bazzet inside?
>>4785690Maybe? But I don't trust that Bazett. Ignoring everything else, she's living in luxury. This is not her typical behavior. Though I suppose Caster Cu really could have brought her here.>>4785691It's all your fault. Ignoring Neko-Arc made her upset, so of course we'd jump at the next plot hook thrown our way.
>>4785692That is pretty plausible, and I can't think of a better plan. We should be able to talk to her in Satsuki's garden before we have to subdue her.
>>4785692Ideally we don't need to CS as Chiyome is fast as fuck and the RM will give us time to wait for her. As Satsuki is strong right now. That noise is a big clue though, I feel.
>>4785695>>4785696Ideally we would bottlevore Morrígan inside RM and Medea would be able to use this time to get Scáthach here as well since Cu might show up soon.
>>4785692yeah, is there any downside to dragging her into Satsuki's RM so we can grab her and truth inspect her?I'm a bit worried about the emotional soak aspect of Satsuki's RM though... if I'm imagining it correctly
Are we even IN the building or did we get faery circle'd? Do we see whats outside the window?
>>4785700>I'm a bit worried about the emotional soak aspect of Satsuki's RM though... if I'm imagining it correctlyI don`t think Morrígan is portrayed super insane and evil.Satsuki took us, Arc, Sakura, Mordred in her RM just fine. And Sakura is Sakura.
>>4785696If she's not here when Satsuki activates it, she can't get in.We've been pretty stingy with seals already.
>>4785706I meant as in we tell her to hurry, lock Bazett in RM and when it ends Chiyome is waiting outside ready to swoop in. But I guess we can use some CS.
>>4785701You can see the buildings opposite.
>>4785706I'm sure we can CS her in if we need it. I don't think we need her yet.
>>4785712Can we CS Chiyome to inside satsuki's RM?
>>4785716You don't know.
>>4785717well thats nice
If Morrígan put her own curses on Cu it is better to have her in bottle for a fight. Or maybe we would get a chance to avoid fighting Cu outright.
>>4785672>CS Chiyome in>Ask Satsuki to pull you all in her Garden>Have a nice fruendly chat with what I can only assume is MorriganBetter safe than sorry. Will switch if someone comes up with something better.
We are you calling QM?
>>4785724Should we try asking some questions first and catching her? We dont KNOW if shes puppeted or just mindfucked, or if its truly the Morrigan.
>>4785729Manaka said something about enhancing our friends to make the game more interesting. We couldn't scry her, but we could scry Cu. And even if she's not being meatpuppeted, I can think if no better place to hold this conversation.
>>4785672>Pretend to believe 'Bazett" and play along stalling it while telepathically contacting Chiyome and warning her about Command Spell summon and possible possession by divine spirit>Telepathically contact Medea and tell her about this location and ask to bring Scáthach or anybody else who will be up to fight Cu potentially>Command Spell Chiyome here>Ask Satsuki to pull you all inside Salvation GardensI think this covers all possible angles. Unless we want Shuten or Suzuka here too right away or something like that.
>>4785735I don't think we should talk to Medea yet. We can do it from inside the RM if we need to. Otherwise looks solid.
>>4785739If Bazett is possessed like we think she is we might not get a window to do so or Gardens might cut off communication. Better safe than sorry.
Seeing as the update came early today and not many people have voted yet... I'll give you an hours extension on voting time.
>>4785749Even if Bazett is possessed, she'll not start a fight in Satsuki's Garden. I don't see why it would cut off communications either. The reasons we didn't want to just call Medea and have her investigate it herself still apply, I think.Not to mention that if Scathach gets here and starts fighting Cu in the morning, the city gets wrecked, the coverup gets that much harder, and the day is ruined.
>>4785735Supporting. However I also want to write in>Apologize profusely to Medea when you get home seeing as this was meant to just be a day of relaxation and not a day to focus on the grail warI mean we were just meant to relax today correct? Well regardless the result of this will either be getting Bazett, Lancer, or both back. As for the concept that we apply to Lancer. Just for fun, how about we completely reverse his E-Rank Luck. Aka give him the concept of ‘Lucky’. Does it fit? Probably not. But again this suggestion is more for fun if anything. Something like Spear or Agility may be a little more fitting....fuck if I know I’m ass at coming up with concepts.
'My dearest Shinji,You didn't want to play by the rules I gave you and didn't want to even come to see me, so I've changed the game! Your friends are now free! Now your new challenge is to save them all before they manage to get themselves killed! Of course, it wouldn't be much of a game if they weren't playing to win, so they are going to target you too! It definitely wouldn't have been fair if the humans weren't given a little boost either, so I decided to help them out through using their bodies as hosts for two extraordinarily compatible spirits!Have fun!Love from,Manaka Sajyou'Unless Manaka lied, this is definitely not Bazett.
>>4785758Apologize to Medea AND Sakura. They both insisted. Sakura even more so. But I'm sure we won't be getting home in the next update, let's keep this for later.
>>4785763Shit knew I was forgetting something. Yeah>Apologize profusely to Medea and Sakura when you get home seeing as this was meant to just be a day of relaxation and not a day to focus on the grail war
>>4785755If Cu gets here things will heat up regardless and it will be just as hard to cover up.Whatever Bazett deal is right now it is save to assume that she likely has same Contract Shuten had. So she will try to resist with all she has.>>4785758I think apologizing time will come later. Most of our allies wanted us to take a break.>>4785760It could be Medb too? But she has no raven theme.
Iirc Odin sees what his crows sees, so Cu already knows about us. So much for free day.
>>4785763Tbh I wouldn't apologize for checking out something that was nearly directly in our way and suspicious as fuck. There is not seeking out trouble, and there is getting into trouble because we don't check out something super suspicious.
>>4785767We can ask Medea to teleport us out if it looks like it's getting into a fight with Cu. This is something we absolutely cannot afford, for many, many reasons.Medb is possible, if the ravens were Cus. I'm still betting on Morrigan.>>4785769We don't know it's Odin for sure, but yes.>>4785770We could have ignored it, contacted Medea, and asked her to scry it for us. We most definitely need to apologise, and getting involved here was a mistake.
>>4785672Switch >>4785724 to >Pretend to believe 'Bazett" and play along stalling it while telepathically contacting Chiyome and warning her about Command Spell summon and possible possession by divine spirit>Command Spell Chiyome here>Ask Satsuki to pull you all inside Salvation GardensTaking out what I disagree with from the write in in order to provide an alternative.
>>4785672 >Pretend to believe 'Bazett" and play along stalling it while telepathically contacting Chiyome and warning her about Command Spell summon and possible possession by divine spirit>Command Spell Chiyome here>Ask Satsuki to pull you all inside Salvation Gardens
>>4785778>>4785672 SupportLinking correctly.
Also, isn't Odin capable of changing his appearance to mask as other people? That might be lancer himself masking as Bazett.
>>4785787Good point anon. It changes what we should talk to "Bazett" about, but not what we should do now, I think.
Just imagine collecting all those goddesses inside bottles and than presenting them Ereshkigal and telling them that she is good goddess and all of them are trash.
>>4785787I'd like to imagine Odin would be better at deception and stuff than this Bazett us. Either via magic or just being more convincing at acting.
>>4785794Honestly, Ereshkigal seems the nicest goddess in the nasuverse from what I've seen. Though I admit I haven't read about every single one of them.
>>4785794This is how you get 99/100's anon.
>>4785797Quetz is also pretty okay, I think? But probably yes.
>>4785758>profuselyNo. Shinji needs more spine, no need to lower himself so much.
>>4785803Do we know how Eresh originally looked like? It'll be extremely hard to explain why we made the puppet look like a blonde Rin for no reason.>>4785810I've heard good things about Quetz, yes. But I can't be bothered to look her up unless she becomes relevant.
>>4785816Nero already exists, we can just put it into "coincidence" or "the creator of this universe is not creative"
>>4785816Presumably she looks similar to Ishtar, and we could always ask the bottle since they're sisters. Enkidu probably met her when he was dead.
>>4785816We don't. Its likely that the actual true form of Gods is just a mass of information that looks like light without an avatar/host so....They look like their host or what they want to look like/what is imagined of them, I guess?
>>4785816Just tell her the Blonde Rin isn't her, its the Extra Rin thats merely descended of Tokiomi and is a Spiritron Hacker. Not sure if thats addressed but thats the blonde Rin I know. Problem...transformed? Solved?
>>4785826Just let she look like rin, its more cute this way and gives rin another sister like artoria did with fairy saber.
>>4785797It's a shame that so many of the goddesses I feel are worse by default due to being fine with meatpuppeting people.Especially when we know from Rasputin and Zhuge Liang and sort of Sitonai that if they want to, they can just sit back and watch and not usurp control of the body of the person they are squatting in.At least Quetz isn't specifically meatpuppeting somebody.Jaguar Man was a joke that was taken too far.
>>4785826>The actual true form of Gods is just a mass of informationMECHACHADS
>In Sumerian religion, Gugalanna (Sumerian: 𒄞𒃲𒀭𒈾) is the first husband of Ereshkigal, the queen of the underworld. >Some scholars consider Gugalanna to be the same figure as the Bull of Heaven, slain by Gilgamesh and Enkidu in the Epic of Gilgamesh.oh boy.
>>4785842Wait, Sumerian Text is ok by 4chan formatting but these stars aren't? ⋆
>>4785839Mechachads are their body, the "true" mechachad is the program ran by the robots, solved? I do know that that's how Divine Spirit Iskander manifested in Spirit Tomb, so its a pretty "true form". Maybe its Divine Spirits only and not Gods?>>4785842This isn't a thing in Nasu I think. Gugalanna is a Divine Beast weapon thing. I don't think even Nergal was the husband of Eresh in nasu version.>>4785837Jaguar Man is nothing. The real going too far would be Tezcatlipoca is both jaguar smoking mirror god and also the myth version of ORT as the spider god, so Jaguar Man is also ORT bunrei pseudo.
>>4785837>Jaguar Man was a joke that was taken too far.I remember a quest of Taiga mc in the 5th war, and she started getting Jaguarman's powers and beat the shit out of the guy that summoned Medea, that had summoned Circe this time. Taiga became her master, and it was a lot of fun. And then it died.
>>4785843That's a very small star.⋆
>>4785822I don't think coincidence will cut it here, but I suppose it's better than nothing. And I don't recommend talking about Takeuchi to anyone other than maybe Sasaki.>>4785823Yeah, we should do that.>>4785826We already know what Ishtar looked like though. Maybe Eresh looked like a dark-haired Ishtar, to go along with how she had a different hair color than Ishtarin?>>4785837>meatpuppetingYeah, true, this is abhorrent. >>4785846>I don't think even Nergal was the husband of Eresh in nasu version.No, he wasn't. He merely tricked her and gave her authority over plagues instead of over the sun like she wanted to make the underworld a brighter place.
>>4785846It might be a case by case basis for different godsyou knowbecause muh textures.
>>4785849Are you talking about the anonkun quest?
>>4785852>We already know what Ishtar looked like though.That's not an official design tho, its a PFALZ fan design like the Humbaba and ORT designs. Before SF we didn't have an official Humbaba and we still don't have an official ORT design.
>>4785672I'm outta here, it's my day off.
>>4785850can you triforce yet>>4785852We really dont need to give any explanation, if rin asks we can just tell her that we dont know why the the goddess looks like her but blonde.
>>4785854We know thats also how Arcueid's True Form looks like probably. Extra dude found her in the Himalayas and instantly thought her as a god above gods and became her worshipper.Holmes and someone else found a being of light in the Himalayas that was so transcendent he swears by it rather than to God in internal thoughts iirc. So. Coincidence? This is the source of the theory that it was Arc possessing or hiding inside Holmes not a Foreigner but I don't know if that theory is still extant
>>4785857>Before SF we didn't have an official Humbaba Why the fuck is it a robot.WHY THE FUCK IS IT A ROBOT.NOTHING ELSE IN BABYLONIA WAS A ROBOT.THOMAS HUMBABA EDISONIsn't PFALZ design what they went for for Gugalanna?
>>4785852You know. After Niggerman mentioned choking I am thinking Ishtar looks pretty chokable here.
>>4785862Arcueid in Extra was made non-canon IIRC.So no.Nothing in this setting is planned, you just make shit vague enough and then call back to it.
>>4785864i'm so tired of mecha-fication of the AoG. please retcon that shit if we ever go to like 10,000BC
>>4785864Because it devours the environment automatically and it was summoned in a reactor building and absorbed the city. If it was summoned in a forest or somewhere else, it would be different.It's true form is something like Enkidu's base form before Shamhat, which is like a giant mud thing with horns.
>>4785864Isnt Gugalanna more of a storm with armor? At least in FGO thats how it looks, kinda.>>4785866>made non-canonhah, i dont get nasu sometimes, he makes that non-canon but not the other retarded shit
>>4785864PFALZ Gugalanna was like a giant skeleton cow, I think?
>>4785854Could you do an interlude where Sakura and Shinji encountered Rin possessed by Ishtar in Paradox Reincarnated? How would they react to "our" Rin suddenly possessed by Ishtar instead of Illya?
>>4785857Really? I thought it was official when it was posted in previous threads. Then it's the best we have, I suppose.>>4785859I guess? We know it's not how she originally looked though, and Eresh will want to know too. "I don't know" is becoming increasingly implausible when we know pretty much everything else.
>>4785866I thought there was a thing where Koyanskaya encounters a "wandering shitty monk" in the Indian LB or something that says the same line to her like the Extra dude asked Arc to be his goddess that she references. So take that as you will as to what and how gets referenced. I just treat everything that appears as canon, even, or especially if its stupid. That is the surest way.
>>4785873We can ask eresh? If summoning her into a puppet or something.
>>4785868It's still really dumb.>>4785872Next Carnival, remind me.>>4785871Yeah, the official design.
>>4785878Yeah, allowing her to customize her body herself seems like the best option here. Gives us an easy way out if she does choose to look like a blonde Rin.
>>4785882Here's Gugulanna.It's the same as the one we see.
>>4785882>Next Carnival, remind me.Why don't you have a txt with all the suggestions saved?
>>4785882Isn't the design of Gugalanna a giant storm thing, with the four tornadoes in SF incoming being its four legs? With GO also having it be a giant storm thing, or is this brainrot?
>>4785870>hah, i dont get nasu sometimes, he makes that non-canon but not the other retarded shitBecause he arbitrarily decided that Tsuki and Fate worlds can't exist.Even though Dead Apostles still exist.
>>4785886Less of a robot and more of a walking skeleton bull thing.>>4785891FGO uses the design from QM's pic if i remember correctly.
