Caster Shirou: How about using Tracing to buff items? After all, two of the canon Caster abilities are Territory Creation and Item Enchanting.

All-Shirou Grail War: Okay, I can see this. Archer is Archer; Saber is obvious; Lancer gets more hit-and-run, ambushes and Battle Continuation skill (whatever that means); Berzerk is pretty easy to explain too. What else? Rider goes to Saber, since I can't imagine Shirou here.

Assasin Shirou: Discuss.
Rather than smart, I'd prefer to be wise. It would let me be silly more often.

Assassin Shirou is simply Archer if he'd decided to, instead of honing his abilities to make stuff blow right the f*ck up, hone his abilities to kill people from twenty kilometers away with a normal, every day arrow. Getting shot through the heart does just as much damage as Gae Bolg, and unlike Gae Bolg, you ain't gonna dodge it from sheer luck.

Also provides an epic funny aneurysm moment when Shirou complains that standard arrows are useless in a battle amongst servants and one pops out of his chest with "Oh, the Irony!" written on it. Oh, yes, Assassin Shirou is even more of a sarcastic ass than Archer, but he is the ultimate form of the path of the Asura. He kills the least people possible to save the most people possible, has absolutely no doubts or hesitation and absolutely never misses.

If you do that, you should never actually see Assassin to preserve the mystery and humor. Have him get countered by Archer, blown the fuck up.

That's the point of giving him such a ludicrous range on top of his standard Assassin skills. He's virtually undetectable. Of course, at some point, Archer just guesses at the distance and direction and wipes the entire area off the map, killing Assassin. Hiding in an uninhabitated forest was a dumb idea.

(For further hilarity, have him team up with the good guys and all of his dialogue delivered through arrow-mail. The chance to have someone go 'Message for you sir!' is too good to be ignored.)

Though you realize the logical conclusion of this is they're all going to try and kill Shiro to be the one to cause the paradox that makes them cease to exist.… with the possible exception of Assassin of all people, since he's found the least repugnant way to be a Counter Guardian…

Rin: shouldn't you be planning to win the grail war?

Archer( in front of a blackboard full of crazy filled with killing Shiro plans): this IS how to win the grail war! I won't let Lancer kill him first! And berserker will probably screw it up… no, I'm the one best suited to kill Emiya…

Assassin Shirou could come from a timeline where Kiritsugu, somehow, didn't learn a single thing from the Fourth War and trained Shirou to be like him before kicking the bucket.

There's no reason why they all have to be Counter Guardians. Some could be legitimate Heroic Spirits, who ascended to the throne after a lifetime of saving people. Such versions would not only refrain from killing Shirou, they'd most likely defend him vigorously.

I mean Shirou becoming a real Heroic Spirit?
No, I'm not a Zombie, they piss me off.

I should imagine so. All it takes is being sufficiently heroic that your legend achieves a certain degree of legendariness. (I seem to recall hearing something about Word Of God that heroic spirits can't really ascend anymore, but I choose to count this as Nasutrolling on the same level as all Assassins being from this one place in the Middle East. I.e., disregard as necessary.)

I assume Nasu says that and sticks to it until he comes up with a REALLY cool reason not to... which is sensible and proper.

But Hercules fulfills the requirements to every class but Caster! Obviously, Herc must secretly be a Hassan.

Well, he DID adventure in that part of the world. Whose to say he didn't become a Hassan during his crazy years? Maybe that's WHY he was crazy. No head for hashish.

Maybe.

Also, I totally agree with Your Avatar message. I don't care if her costume is a little out of date either.cool

[up]I'm gonna have to second that.

If there's one possible Servant matchup I want to see written, it's probably Bersercules versus Jack the Giant Killer (or some derivative of him). Actually, I'd just like to see more trickster characters in Grail War fics, period.

[up]He may be a god, but given all the things he's been over the years, I'm sure Loki could weasel himself in by some loophole or another. He'd make a devastating Caster, too.

On the other hand, Odysseus would be pretty easy. Rider, maybe?

Yeah, Loki is all about the ridiculous shit, so I could see that happening.

Also, relevant.

"How the hell did someone summon a god as a servant."

"Girl, I'm Loki, this kind of bullshit cheating is what I live for!"

And yeah, I could see Shirou eventually ascending to become a Heroic Spirit if he becomes legendary. Famous, he could become very easily. Legendary is a mite tougher, but given EMIYA's life, I wouldn't be entirely surprised...

DCAU SUPERGIRL IS BESTEST SUPERGIRL!!!!

I wanna see Lancelot versus Archer (either of them) properly, to the death. They kept being interrupted, it's annoying.
