The Emiya Clan is a series of collaborative forums posts made by members of the [[http://forum.fanfiction.net/forum/The_Mechanics_of_In_Flight/88086/ The Mechanics of In Flight]], a forum set up by author [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1263379/gabriel_blessing Gabriel Blessing]] for the purpose of discussing his works ''Fanfic/TheHillOfSwords'' and ''Fanfic/InFlight''

The madness began in the forums "TFF Omakes" thread. Although the thread was mostly devoted to humorous outtakes, eventually a few people began inserting a few romantic snippets which included Miya, Saber, and Rin (the latter two once they had "returned"). GB himself wrote his (confirmed) non-canon [[http://forum.fanfiction.net/topic/88086/41169280/18/#42392211 Good End]] for the story.

Then one day, user Silver_Sun17 wrote a prompt that suggested Kazehana bringing [[PersonOfMassDestruction Aoko]] [[{{Tsukihime}} Aozaki]] to Izumo House... which resulted in a short snippet that had both Aoko and Touko both waking up drunk in Shirou's bed, demanding that he "[[http://forum.fanfiction.net/topic/88086/41169280/30/#42809750 take responsibility]]." ([[http://forum.fanfiction.net/topic/88086/51508030/26/#52180628 Alternate version with additional content.]])

It... sort of [[BabiesEverAfter exploded]] from [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone there]].

At the most recent count, the Clan currently numbers roughly ''24 wives'', including Sekirei, Heroic Spirits, Magi, and at least one personification of God.
There are also at least ''29'' [[OriginalCharacter children]].

The Clan runs on the assumption that every [[TheMultiverse fictional universe]] exists somewhere, often through RuleOfCool, [[TimeyWimeyBall Time Travel Hijinks]], and [[MemeticMutation The BAR]].

We just say [[AWizardDidIt Zelretch planned everything]].

Many of the forum posts have been collected in the FF.net community, [[http://www.fanfiction.net/community/In_Flight_OMAKES/92945/99/1/1/ In Flight Omakes]] for easier reading.

As of March 19th, 2012, the chronicler of the Emiya Clan, Benbladesman, finished his arduously worked on index of all relevant stories on the forums up until that date. [[http://forum.fanfiction.net/topic/88086/59073588/1/ It is here]]. It is sorted by thread and author and very long, but is very helpful in getting those who want to jump in oriented without trawling trough several threads worth of posts.

On January 11th, 2013, the Emiya Clan attempted a reboot in order to make it easier for new people to put stories after several of their more prominent contributors moved on to other things . However, the reboot failed, and now EC has officially closed down.

See ''FateStayNight'' and ''{{Sekirei}}'' for the tropes of those respective universes. And see ''FanFic/InFlight'' for the tropes from Gabriel Blessing's original work. See '''[[Recap/TheEmiyaClan the recap page]]''' for tropes of some of the individual stories.

!!The Emiya Clan in general contains examples of:
* AccidentalMisnaming: More of a meta-example. The authors constantly mix up the names of Riko, Eiko, Reiko, and Keiko, with the last two being the most common mistakes.
* AdultsAreUseless: Not only averted, but completely stomped flat. Even though EC is all about the kids, every single one of the parents retains their [[{{Badass}} badassery]] if they had it, or have [[TookALevelInBadass taken a level in badass]] at some point in the Clan's past. And not a single one of the parents will hesitate for a moment to help their children.
** [[spoiler: Case in point: [[http://forum.fanfiction.net/topic/88086/51508030/21/#52084392 Touma's past-reveal arc]], [[http://forum.fanfiction.net/topic/88086/51508030/21/#52094546 the Clan's reaction]], and [[http://forum.fanfiction.net/topic/88086/51508030/24/#52133093 the Clan's retaliation]]]]. BadAssFamily indeed.
* AlternateUniverseFic: Has spawned two fics depicting alternate Fifth Holy Grail Wars. One has Shiro's kids replace all the canon Servants. The other has Miya from this timeline being summoned as Servant Saber under Sakura Matou, Karasuba from an alternate timeline where she was one of Shirou's Seikirei as Servant Assassin under Souichirou, [[LightNovel/ZeroNoTsukaima Louise Françoise le Blanc de la Vallière]], [[Fanfic/TheHillOfSwords the Duchess of Emptiness]], as Servant Caster under Shirou himself, Tabitha as Servant Rider under Luvia, and Arturia as Berserker under Illya.
* BadAssFamily: Something of a given.
* BerserkButton: Several of them. Pushing them will bring the wrath of the entire Clan on you. Check the spoiler for AdultsAreUseless above.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: ''Chiyo''
* BigFancyHouse
* ButtMonkey: Lancer, duh.
* ChildrenAreInnocent: Subverted with most of the children.
* CodeEmergency: A lot of these due to the family being CrazyPrepared. Ranging from simple ''"A kid is in trouble"'' to a specific ''"Karin let a [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever three-story mecha]] loose"''
* CosmicPlaything: The Root and Zelretch enjoy doing this to the Clan members.
* TheClan: Also a given.
* CrackFic: How it all began...
* CrossoverShip: Over half the children being Sekirei + [[AWizardDidIt Zelretch]] seems to result in this.
* DecoyLeader: Shirou now controls MBI, but as far as the world knows it's his mother who is still in control of the company.
* TheDreaded: After an incident with a trans-dimensional entity ([[Characters/NobodyDies Lily]]) and the blue-haired red-eyed clone teenager who came with it ([[Characters/NobodyDies Rei]]), the Emiya Clan sees [[FanFic/NobodyDies her and the other Ree]] as this. Mentioning one or using their distinctive vocal greeting is bound to trigger a MassOhCrap moment from anybody in hearing distance.
-->''"Heee~ey."''
-->''*cue [[{{Lockdown}} house lockdown]] and [[GodzillaThreshold weapons free]]*''
* EldritchLocation: The basement. Going down there is equivalent to an epic dungeon crawler.
* ElementalPowers: Many of the Half-Sekirei children, plus a few others.
** [[PlayingWithFire Fire]]: Kaien
** [[BlowYouAway Wind]]: Fuuko
** [[MakingASplash Water]]: Gekkou
** [[AnIcePerson Ice/Snow]]: Koyuki
** [[GreenThumb Wood]]: Ichigo
** [[LightEmUp Light]]: Shinta
** [[DarkIsEdgy Darkness]]: Sakuya
** [[TimeMaster Time]]: Reiko/Eiko
* [[FatherIWantToMarryMyBrother Father I Want to Marry My Sister]]: Karin to [[LesYay Keiko]]. Shirou is not amused.
* FriendToAllChildren: One of the Clan's collective Berserk Buttons.
* FluffyTheTerrible: Primate Murder aka. Primmy
* GenerationXerox: Attempts were made to subvert this, although it still happened.
** In terms of personality: [[TheTease Fuuko]], [[SugarandIcePersonality Koyuki]], [[AnythingThatMoves Karin]], [[{{Tsundere}} Gekkou]], [[TheDitz Kumako]]
** Kiri and Arika both suffer from [[JekyllAndHyde losing their ahoge]], just like their [[FateStayNight mother]]
* HappilyMarried: [[MarryThemAll ...and]] ''[[MarryThemAll how!]]''
* Harem Hero: Most of the Clan members are either Harem Heroes or parts of a Harem Hero's harem.
* HasTwoMommies: Aside from the obvious ''everybody'' having over two dozen mothers, certain children claim two specific women as their mothers: Saber/Arturia and Rin for Arika, Musubi and Yume for Shinta, Caster/Medea and Saber/Arturia for Ulf. Aleksi also calls Rin and Luvia "Mommy"...in Finnish.
* InTheBlood
* InterspeciesRomance: Given that half the kids are aliens, one is a vampire, and another is the daughter of the divine spirit of humanity, kind of a given.
* KnightTemplarParent: Lorelei mostly. Some of the others have shades of this as well.
* LikeFatherLikeSon: Shirou's heroism got passed down to some of the kids as well. It got diluted along the way in some cases, but still.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: It goes without saying....
* MassiveNumberedSiblings
* {{Masquerade}}: Partially due to the MegaCrossover nature, the Clan has a ''lot'' of enemies. As a result, they try to keep a low profile. [[HilarityEnsues They don't always succeed]].
* MegaCrossover: Aside from the obvious FSN/Sekirei, the "main" ones seem to be MahouSenseiNegima, Franchise/LyricalNanoha, RanmaOneHalf , RosarioToVampire, VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles, BloodPlus, and SuzumiyaHaruhi. Which doesn't include all the various one-shots and side-mentions.[[labelnote:Full list]] As of this writing: Manga/BlackLagoon, DevilMayCry, Franchise/{{Digimon}}, Franchise/{{Disgaea}}, {{Freezing}}, LightNovel/FullMetalPanic, Franchise/HarryPotter, Manga/HayateTheCombatButler, {{Hellsing}}, KashimashiGirlMeetsGirl, LadiesVersusButlers, MahouSenseiNegima, Franchise/LyricalNanoha, OuranHighschoolHostClub, VideoGame/{{Persona}}, Franchise/{{Pokemon}}, Manga/RanmaOneHalf, RosarioToVampire, Franchise/SailorMoon, SuzumiyaHaruhi, ToAruMajutsuNoIndex, Manga/BunnyDrop, and many more.[[/labelnote]]
** Notably, Kyon (Haruhi) and Chisame (Negima) have had their backstories altered to where they are [[LongLostRelative members of the Clan]].
** WordOfGod from the author of Devil's Wings storyline states that [[spoiler:the corpse of]] [[CodeGeass Lelouch vi Britannia]] will play a role in the story's future.
** [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7727761/1/A_Season_for_Lunacy The Christmas Party]] takes this UpToEleven.
* TheMedic: Chiho and Chiyo
* MoreDakka: Keiko, obviously, but a great deal of Clan members utilize this with their magic as well.
* TheMovieBuff: Gil takes StarWars and LordOfTheRings very seriously. He quotes the latter throughout the Christmas party, in narmtastic ways.
* OhCrapThereAreFanficsOfUs: Not a fanfic, but Haru has copies of the RanmaOneHalf manga, which Ryoga is the first to learn about.
* OnlySaneMan: Kyon and Chisame normally fulfill this role. During the Christmas Party, [[spoiler: Haru and Gilgamesh]] join them to form the [[LordOfTheRings Fellowship of the Sane.]]
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Haru is one-quarter Dead Apostle.
* {{Polyamory}}: Not just Shirou Emiya, but [[{{Tsukihime}} Shiki Nanaya/Tohno is also said to be in a similar relationship with his harem.]]
* RunningGag: Reiko/Eiko's sneezes and Kiri's [[LethalChef attempts to cook]].
** Kaien continually TemptingFate
** Touma has an unhealthy desire to invite his siblings into a threesome with him and his girlfriend/wife.
*** [[spoiler: He [[TemptingFate goes a bit too far]] when he tries springing this on his teacher, Mana. She quickly corrects this mistake by kicking him straight into a wall.]]
** Kiri and Artemis acting LikeAnOldMarriedCouple. Amounts to no end of the level of ShipTease.
** Shirou getting into heated rivalries with other alpha male characters. [[{{Tsukihime}} Shiki Tohno]], [[MahouSenseiNegima Nagi Springfield]], etc...
** Erika and Sakuya [[VitriolicBestBuds being the best of friends and then fighting to the death the very next minute.]]
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: DA!Haru's whole motivation was to prevent a future where the entire Clan splintered apart into factional infighting and [[AfterTheEnd took the world down with it]]. Once he succeeds, he more or less disappears except for popping up now and then to annoy his younger self.
** Subverted for Eiko, who simply wanted to take a vacation from the grim future she had been living in. However once she had traveled back, her interactions with her old family and younger self had changed her future so much she could not [[TrappedInThePast easily return]]... not that she minded very much.
* SharedUniverse: Due to being a multiple author work.
* ShotgunWedding: Shirou originally. [[spoiler: Happens to Haru and [[RosarioToVampire Moka]] during the Christmas party climax.]]
* ShoutOut: Part of the MegaCrossover of the Chirstmas Party, Servant Shirou, Dante and Rock are watching [[EyeshieldTwentyOne The Christmas Bowl]]
* SmallGirlBigGun: Keiko in spades.
* StrengthEqualsWorthiness: Homura and Tsukiumi have doubts that martial arts have a place when their family already has superhuman abilities, so they challenge Ranma and Ryoga to a fight. The latter two lose, but just barely.
* SuperCop: [[GhostInTheShell Motoko Kusanagi]] takes this role in Shin Tokyo. She doesn't like it very much, since she has basically been handed the job of fixing whatever the EC decides to screw up in their spare time, but she preforms it admirably nonetheless.
* SuperWeight: [[SuperWeight/FanFiction Has a rather complex one due to all the characters.]]
* SuperpowerfulGenetics
** SuperPowerLottery: Some of the kids got their parents' skills equally, some got very watered-down versions, some hit the jackpot.
* TeamPet: [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Primate Murder]], complete with SleepModeSize.
* ThickerThanWater
* TokenEvilTeammate: [[KnifeNut Mana]]
* TheTokyoFireball: Happens regularly. Most notably during the Christmas incident.
* UnwantedHarem: Not only the original Clan's origins, but some of the children also have managed to scrape this together because of their [[ToLoveRu own]] [[RosarioToVampire crossovers]].
* WackyRacing: Emiya Clan Grand Prix. [[spoiler: With the three organisers being AU!Illya, Zelretch and Araya Souren, you KNOW where this is going.]]
* WeirdnessMagnet
* WorldOfBadass: If someone isn't badass, they're either unimportant or connected to someone who is.
