    The free SRs? That's a thing. Happened twice. But Nero Bride is a SSR, so...

    Also, OP, while I agree that basing your summons on your actual Gacha luck is fun, I think I'd be acceptable to bend the rules a tad in the case of Nero. I wouldn't complain. Their dialogue was funny as shit.

    I'm of the opinion that Narrative can bend the rule of the Gacha just this once.

    Because CLEARLY, Nero Bride would not let her new husband get away from her.

    ... And Imperial Privilege is OP.

    Also, St-Georges is clearly assimilating more and more to the Emperor of Mankind... Seeing as he PUSHED BACK KARNA (Rider) on his own.

    Nice to see that even if he is a huge bastard, Duryodhana still cares about Karna.

    Also, if Nero is summoned to Chaldea then I think her and Charlies relationship will be like this:



    If she somehow goes back in time and becomes Kim Kardashian, then that would explain a lot of things.

    Anyone else think Nero’s interlude to get thrice setting sun will be her putting down her Septum Empire counterpart?

    Nero, repeatedly stabbing counterpart: “Crazy Bitch just Won’t DIE!”

    Everyone else: ‘Yup, conclusive proof Nero has MPD’ nodding to selves.

    Hopefully this entire fiasco convince Charles into developing the heavy hitters among the Servants. Now he knows he can't always be sneaky.

    Also NERO YOU ABSOLUTE CHAD. Pity we won't see you for a LONG while.

    Of course, the day we get back from America, there's another meeting.

    "All right, people," Roman says, looking around the table. "There's no escaping it. We need food. We were running out before the month and a half we spent on America, as it stands now, we have only two days of food left."

    "Have we found a Micro-Singularity?" I ask, already bracing myself.

    "Yes. This is one of the bubble-type ones left over from resolving the London Singularity. It covers the town of Stratford-upon-Avon in the year 1652." Roman announces. "It was the first one we could find. You'll have to go on a supply run to there, as swiftly as possible. S.H.E.B.A. projects that the Micro-Singularity will resolve itself twenty-seven hours from now."

    "Alright," I say after a moment of thought. "I'll get my team together." First stop: Getting a haircut. I haven't shaved in over a month.

    ---​

    "I'm putting a party together for a supply raid," I say, standing stock-still while Chaldea's acting barber sizes me up. "You interested?"

    "Hm." Kojirou draws Monohoshizao. "The last one I was on didn't turn out all that well."

    "They rarely do. It's why I need someone with your expertise to accompany me on this one."

    "Well, I suppose if you think so highly of me, I can't help but join you," Kojirou says with a small smile, bringing his katana up into the ready position. "Just to confirm: Clean-shaven cheeks and your usual crew cut?"

    "Yes."

    "Very well. Hold still." And then he lunges into motion, Monohoshizao a dancing glimmer of light.

    And once he's finished, I'm clean-shaven with short hair once more, without so much as a scratch on me.

    "Skilled as ever, Kojirou," I note. "Well, I'm off to get Vlad, Tamamo, and Caesar on board. I've already confirmed things with Hundred Face and Cu."

    "I myself will head to the briefing room."

    "No, straight to the Klein Coffins, this time. We can't waste so much as a second."

    ---​

    My team is assembled. Vlad, Tamamo, Caesar, Kojirou, Hundred Face, Caster Cu, and, last but not least, a very tired-looking Mash.

    "Alright people, let's go put some food on our tables," I say, as we file into the Coffins.

    And then we're off, the light carrying us away once more.

    Using the sword skills of an incredibly talented swordsmaster for a shave and haircut...

    I thought using Romulus' clairvoyance for doing paperwork was petty, but nope, you still surprise me.

    Well done.

    Were you by chance inspired by that scene in UBW Abridged where Sasaki explains to Saber that his ultimate technique was created to kill a bird?

    Now all we need is for Cu to start speaking in rhymes, Medea to give Charlie cute names and Galahad to compliment EMIYA's abs if they summon him.

    He's been inhabiting the body of a young girl, so somehow developing an attraction to attractive males wouldn't be too surprising.

    Or just admire the fact that he's developed such an impressive physique, without any sexual undertones.

    Just one warrior complimenting the work another warrior has done.

    That must have saddened all the ladies during his time.

    Assuming they knew what asexulity was.

    It did sadden quite a few fair maidens, yes. He died when he was seventeen, though, so he really didn't live long enough for it to become a major issue.

    And, while they didn't have the concept of sexual orientation, they did follow a religion that placed chastity and self-control of one's urges as a virtue. Most people just saw him as extremely pious and godly.

    At least Tawara Touta's Bale of Inexhaustibility delayed the need for that for a while. He is the true MVP.

    Also MY BODY IS READY FOR CHARLES' NEXT BULLSHIT. AND HE DESERVES IT FOR MAKING MASH WORK EXTRA SHIFTS.

    Does Da Vinci use reinforcement on Chaldea's food stock for more nutritional value and longer shelf life? Seems to me that you can try to get more for less and spend less time pirating local singularities of their food.

    That would require a constant mana flow which would quickly mount up until it costs almost as much as Chaldea's Servant upkeep. It would also require a complete reworking of Chaldea's magical infrastructure, which would require that they dismiss all its Servants while the renovations were being made. Including Da Vinci.

    Preach it brother.

    Hey here's an idea on how to get the more alcoholically inclined Servants to love you more.

    Have their booze be Reinforced from time to time.

    There was this fic where Cu discovers someone did this and called them a genius.

    Wonder how Scathach feels that the guy she taught runes to is using them to enhance his booze?

    Did she actually teach him how to do it, as say something like a graduation present, or a promised reward so he'd pay more attention and try to learn things aside from fighting?

    If he taught the other Red Branch guys how to do this, then his popularity must have skyrocketed.

    "Come my brothers, my comrades!" William Shakespeare bellows, leading his fellow Stratfordians into battle. "And together, we will topple this tyrant, this King of Christmas!"

    King Arthur (currently wearing a sexy Santa minidress) says nothing, simply levelling her sword as behind her, her elves draw their tommyguns.

    Meanwhile, I just stand there, completely gobsmacked, where I Rayshifted in.

    "Flynn?" Galahad asks tentatively. "Do you have any idea what the hell's going on right now?"

    "No. And I don't think I want to."

    "Should we... do something?"

    "Probably, yes."

    ---

    "And so, by right of conquest, I take up the title of Santa Claus, and with it, ABSOLUTE DOMINION OVER ALL OF CHRISTMAS!" Vlad announces from atop his mountain of elf corpses. "If there are any who would object to this, please do so now, so that I may kill you."

    Unsurprisingly, no one protests.

    "Jolly good, then, Master of Chaldea!" Shakespeare cheers, as, around us, the other Stratfordians all begin to celebrate our victory. "'All's well that ends well,' as I say."

    "Ah, yes." I agree, already noticing the Singularity beginning to dissolve. 'Cu, how's that food Rayshift going?'

    'We didn't get very much.' he replies apologetically. 'Sorry, Charlie.'

    'It's fine.'

    Then the Rayshift takes us away again.

    ---

    The week after America is a grind. We're stuck going from Micro-Singularity to Micro-Singularity, desperately scrounging food as we go, all while I have to resummons fallen Servants between excursions.

    It never ends.

    ---

    “Mysterious Heroine X, thus far, I’ve been obliged to aid you, in spite of how asinine your very existence has been. But this GOES TOO FAR!”

    “If you’re not with me, YOU’RE AGAINST ME!”

    ---

    “It is I, Astolfo, Paladin of Chalemagne!” the little pink-haired fiend announces as he glides in on a hippogriff. “And I require your aid on a quest most perilous!”

    I turn to Galahad. “Get the emergency whiskey.”

    “Why?”

    “I’ve read the Matter of France, I’m going to need it.”

    ---

    “KARNAMANIA 2: ELECTRIC BOOGALOO!”

    “ROMAN! ROMAN, START THE RAYSHIFT! START THE RAYSHIFT!”

    ---

    It's a Saturday, and Mash and I are both slumped over the table in the cafeteria, dog tired.

    "Hey, Kyrielight?" I ask, prompting her to groan and turn her head towards me. "How're you feeling? Those cyborg polar bears worked you over pretty hard on our last deployment."

    "Eveything hurts, Senpai."

    "Yeah. You still up for Movie Night, though? I picked out a movie that I think both you and Galahad will enjoy."

    "What's it called?" she asks, beginning to sound like the perky and reliable Mash that I know.

    "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," I tell her, trying my hardest to contain my evil smirk.

    "Sounds a bit like work, honestly."

    "True. Actually, hold on, what do you do with the Grails we secure?" Because… I just had an idea.

    "Da Vinci keeps them for experimentation, although I don't think she's actually used any of them yet. She's been too busy fixing the plumbing."

    I grab Mash's hand and pull her up. "Come on, kid, I’ve got a plan."

    ---

    "Da Vinci!" I shout, barging into our resident Renaissance Woman's lab. "I need a Grail!"

    "Top shelf on the right!" she shouts back to me from deeper in the Workshop.

    I look, and there they are.

    "Alright, let's do this," I say. "I wish I had a root beer."

    In a flash of holy, golden radiance, a root beer appears in my hand.

    "All yours, Mash."

    "What? Senpai, I've never-"

    "It's all yours. Take it."

    She does, hesitantly, popping off the cap and then taking a small sip.

    I discreetly reach for my emergency unicorn horn, just in case.

    "It's so fizzy!" she says with a frankly adorable grin.

    "Good. It taste alright?"

    "Yes!"

    "Okay. Let's call Roman in. I think I just solved our food shortage."

    This is a...thing.

    I'm assuming the fight went something like this:



    Vlad's reign is probably going to involve a bit more rods.



    Potential new friend for Galahad in insulting Charlie?

    Please tell me they kept Duryodhana around.

    I really wanna see him sow a key into Charlies arm that he can only retrieve to free himself from his shackles by cutting into his flesh using a pair of tweezers connected to a car battery.

    Ah, the Deus Ex Machina that everyone forgets they have. Just use it to wish for a cornucopia or a Hamper of Gwyddno Garanhir.
    Astolfo is going to cause Charlie a liver failure with all of the shenanigans that he gets up into. Pray that he doesn't summon the rest of the Paladins. The Holy Roman Empire was a silly place.
