You know, summoning four servants makes me think about summoning four Riders, instead. And, since EXTRA proves you can summon Metaphysical concepts...

Sakura summons 4 riders. Who exactly? Conquest, War, Famine and Death. Zouken cries tears of joy at the sight.

Shouldn't that be Pestilence? Or at least Pollution?

I can't remember. I do remember that War and the Pale Rider are in almost all the permutations of the Four Riders that I know of. Can't exactly remember where I read about Conquest.

(The joke is that Sakura is the Antichrist. Conquest helps her unite the world under her flag, War helps her destroy her enemies, Famine helps her weaken her own people and Death claims them all, thus, Gaia does what she's been trying to do since forever.)

I would like more war of the Great grail.

I also clearly need to start reading Nerve Damage.

I kinda skimmed through the first chapter, but it's apparently quite entertaining.

Finally got enough time to start reading Nerve Damage...

First chapter's pretty good. Always nice to see Shirou do something awesome like giving Lancer a tough workout without having his body mutilated into a near-corpse.

I'm thinking of designing a third NP for Apocrypha!Jack, embodying the Living Memory of all the "children of 80, 000 prostitutes in the London ghettos" whose collective hatred empowers her Maria the Ripper NP in canon, who in my modification of Jack's backstory had survived after death as wraiths or via apparitions, and each whom had found a kindred spirit in Jack and thusly fused with her mind/soul (eventually creating a Mind Hive, with her mind as the effective "queen") when she went after her "Mothers" who had abandoned those now-dead kids in the first place (and earned her own psychotic ire after rejecting the poor psychologically-fragile girl), in order to empower her attempts to kill them.

What names, title, and effects do you think it should get?

Why in such a huff, SCM?

Now up through chap 3 of Nerve Damage.

My thoughts upon the subject can be, laconically, summed up as OH HELL YES.

Actually, no. I can read pretty quickly. The thing is, however, that I was doing several other things during that timeframe. Like writing fanfic as well, in addition to dealing with several other interruptions.

And now I have a Negima fic to post.

I'm thinking an Army of the Dead-type effect would fit in nicely with the above hypothetical NP, don't you think?

So I just read Snow Crash.

... anyone else wanna see Juanita as a Master? I mean, she's kinda flat, but goddamn. Modern magus who speaks OL! Tell me you don't want to see that.

Shadowed Philosopher
That would be quite interesting.

Other potential fun bits: Servants vs. Reason, and/or Raven's knives. Unfortunately Snow Crash takes place to a significant degree in the metaverse, which isn't a level which would really be applicable to F/sn.

So I'm actually reading Nerve Damage right now.

Really interesting. Rin flipping her shit and trying to kill Shirou was hilarious. I'm curious as to who Shirou's sensei was however? Is it someone I should recognize? Whatever the case, it's interesting to see what Shirou is capable of with someone to teach him properly.

Reads the notes in chapter 3

Wait? Was the idea for this story suggested here? What the hell was I doing when that happened?

My current theory is that Shiro's mystery teacher is the infamous Kischur Zelretch Schweinorg himself, or an Alternate Universe analogue of him that is not native to the story's universe.

More like the author modified Chapter 3 at some point after Fanfic.Nerv Damage was made.

Ah. Okay then.

Also, I'm surprised at the implication that Nero is the strongest of the three. I was under the impression somehow that Arturia was stronger than her, though that may be the difference between Moon Cell Servants and regular Fate/stay night Servants.

Live and learn.

Also cool the see the author use the Nero is an Ancestor of Arturia theory. I'm not sure how common that is, but I had that idea myself(and it's a good in-universe explanation for their physical resemblance).

They meant that Nero had the highest Strength rating (i.e. physical attack power) among them. Whether the author meant in terms of Rank or in numerical value note  is not clear.

Arturia has all the strength of a girl-child; of course Nero's going to be stronger than her.

I see. I guess I forgot about stats. I do that sometimes, especially since Stats can be easily ignored in series. How often have characters done things they should not be able to do in Fate. I wonder why Nasu bothered creating such intricate rules when he just pisses all over them anyway?

You need rules to break for the sake of cool.

Having a lot of complicated rules which mostly get followed isn't bad. You can define some meta-rules, too. For instance, "If Berserkules really really wants to do something, he can probably break whatever rule forbids it."

Just read the last(for now)chapter of Nerve Damage.

Man, I guess you should fuck with Avenger and the Grail system. I think the only reason Gil was able to sneak in was due to existing outside of it.

I don't know who Medea's Lancer is though. Any ideas?
