    Yes. That said, we're not killing Kiritsugu without getting through Saber first. That's what the command seals are for.

    On the other hand Saber can't Excaliblast right now not without Kerry expanding another command seal.

    But seriously? Don't expect to kill Kiritsugu that easily.

    Eh is this killing Kerry thing a good idea if you have shipping for iri on the mind at all?


    I mean little ladies rather mega devoted. Like Martyr herself without being asked devoted.

    I can't imagine her doing anything but like contracting Saber and ordering her to launch all da Excaliblasts at us while she dives into Justice memories and assumes direct control of the grail system due to sheer rage.

    I did.

    If we kill him, awesome, we have a significant difference and things become interesting.

    If not, oh well, his gambit of showing Irisviel as the master is botched anyway if he has to summon Saber to defend himself.

    We'll see how it goes.

    Edit: And if Iri takes full control of the grail? Good. In that case, it's no longer under the control of 'All Evil in the World', right?

    I don't care if Kiri and whatshername are killed. My only concern is if the IskandarXVelvet paring is upheld.

    Iskander and Waver is the only pairing I wish to see here, other than Sakura/Saver and Kariya. The rest can do whatever.

    Honestly, I think attacking Kiritsugu is a bad idea. For one, it means that he knows we've seen him (assuming he summons Saber to defend himself), and secondly it means that Iri will bear a grudge against us and Kiritsugu will see us as a serious threat, which is not really a good situation when our main goal is to avoid dying (so that Kariya can continue to raise loli-Sakura).

    If he summons Saber that's all the better, means we get a free Servant.

    Also; Sakura is powerful in her own right, capable of letting loose the 6 billion curses of Angra Mainyu. Said curses being the third fastest thing capable of wiping out humanity. In fact, if Sakura exhibited some of the traits she shows in the Bad End of HF where she eats Rin I'd say she'd be among the top 5 of the DAA.

    We also plan to join Rider. Or rather, have Rider join us. His whole thing is conquest through force, right? Let's see how that work out against Savior.

    Rider may have enough of a strong personality to overcome blackening; but I'll bet you his men don't share the same mental fortitude...

    Wouldn't bet on it, the reality marble is part of his soul. If you can't corrupt him, you can't corrupt his reality marble.

    I wasn't even talking about blackening. Just, Rider is all about defeat means friendship and have the people he defeated work for him. Conversely, that means he'd accept to follow whoever can defeat him.

    No. Ionioi Hetairoi is the manifestation of the bonds of loyalty and friendship between Rider and his armies. Rider can use it because it exists in all of their hearts. If you take them away one by one, the RM will inevitably collapse.

    Liam already covered this; but Rider's Reality Marble isn't an traditional one, it's sorta jury-rigged by their loyalty to each other, the bonds between men, etc. etc.

    However, Angra Mainyu is very good at corrupting men...

    shooting kiri sounds fun, but i don't want to make him/saber our enemies.

    on the other hand, at-least one assassin has to die every single time any two (or more) Servants meet.


    we can make it a running joke!

    sakura walks down the street, bumps into Alexander, then the assassin spying on them gets hit by a car!

    Lancer and saber have an honorable duel, Assassin gets caught in a stay excaliblast!

    Saber vs Beserker, random flung-lamp-post hits assassin in the face!


    - - [X] Teleport and take out Assassin as part of entrance.

    [X] Like a bat out of hell...

    Your instructions were simple.

    Given how tense the atmosphere was at the presence of Gilgamesh, it was clear that it would devolve into combat and when THAT happened, no one would be able to say what could happen, or how much damage would be done to the environment with THIS many heroic spirits in a free for all.

    No, it was clear that you would need to break the atmosphere.

    Your path was clear, and while you were intrigued by the proposition of Iskander, there were risks involved for all. Still, it was better than just 'surviving' the grail war to give your Sakura, both of them salvation.

    <<Sakura. Make an entrance. Flashy, but conceal your power to the best of your ability.>> You pause and thought about it. There were a variety of targets, but choosing the wrong one would be disastrous and would upset the current power balance.

    So, it came down to Assassin or the hired killers of the Einzbern. They were after all, just some hired guns. And their removal from the battlefield would remove an ace up the Einzbern's sleeves.

    You had after all done some research on Emiya Kiritsugu, the so-called Magus Killer... he was dangerous, a modern day assassin with access to thaumaturgy.

    This was a man whose skillset revolved entirely around killing people like you, and he was very, very successful at it. Best to remove him, it wasn't as if he would be missed much and would remove an out of context problem for the other magus in the grail war.

    She could always hire more killers, but it would take time and money. This would give you an advantage once more and allows for an easier time in removing the Einzbern before she gets her feet under herself again and starts palming aces in addition to the King of Knights.

    Contrast with the assassin of Kotomine, he had already been killed once already. There was no certainty that striking and killing him would result in his actual removal.

    <<Also, see what you can do about removing the Einzbern's hired killers.>>

    "As you wish..." There was a cheerfulness in her voice before darkness engulfed your sight, the shadow ribbons wrapping her face.

    And there was the sound of whistling wind. <<Sakura?>>

    "Trust me..." There was a playfulness in her voice as she counted softly in sharp contrast to the whistling wind. And now, there was the sound, a vibration.

    You KNEW this vibrating hum, it was louder... sharper, more crisp... but this... this was the sound of your Blade Wing Worms as they flew.

    Shaking your head, you activated the connection you had to one of your familiars in the wharf that had been carried along by Sakura.

    You couldn't see her.

    "Terminal velocity," You had to blink at her words, why would she.... oh, so that was what the whistling sound was.

    Darkness lifted from the connection between you and Sakura and... you saw the hard surface of the sea reflecting the moon above and behind her as she fell.

    Crimson eyes shone in a sleek dark form.

    And there was a blink of darkness.

    And you saw the wharf once more and the city.

    Twisting... angling.

    She was flying...

    You used your familiar to catch sight of her. She truly was flying upon glittering crimson wings. An arrow of the darkest shadow with a banner of white.

    There was a pause as the instincts of the hired killer flared in response to the approach to the approach of Sakura. But it was too little, too late.

    There was a shock wave as she caught hold of him with a wicked talon'ed gauntlets. You wince at seeing the way he was dragged like a rag doll, accelerating from motion-less to something slightly below a hundred and fifty meters per second or something like that, you can't recall what the exact maximum was...

    You can see the heroic spirits react to the sudden assault, prepared to repeal a swift flyer.

    You can see the shocked look on El-Melloi's face as Sakura dragged the magus killer past him, the slight quirk of her lips reflecting in his eyes.

    And then she was past him, and upon the other hired killer.

    With a pair of rag dolls in her clutch, she descended upon the wharf with a crescendo of her wings, the very image of a fey fairy.

    <<Involving outsiders in the Holy Grail War. Really, I'm ashamed of you, Einzbern~...>> You used your familiars to echo your voice in the wharf much like lord El-Melloi had.

    There was a pause as immaculate crimson and azuure eyes widened. "Kiritsugu!"

    Oh, it appeared that he wasn't just a hired killer. This was when you and Sakura noticed the crimson markings upon the head of the Magus Killer.

    <<This... this is the Einzbern master? Now my disappointment only grows.>> You grimaced and channeled every inch of how smarmy Tokiomi could be. <<To imagine the King of Knights serving a craven assassin.>>

    "You... you.... give, give me back Kiritsugu," The shrill cry of the Einzbern was surprising.

    Given how... shattered his body was, the master of Saber wasn't going to be of use to anyone. Even if she was skilled at healing, there was only so much healing that could be done and that required time.

    There was no harm in allowing her this 'small' mercy.

    <<Saver...>> Your usage of her class title received a nod from Sakura as she stepped to the side.

    Still, it appeared that despite your generosity, that the damage sustained from a sudden acceleration and then an even more sudden stop was too much for the human body.

    Truly, physics was a deadly killer.

    And thus, the pair of killers expired before your eyes. Or rather, Sakura's eyes.

    The wail of despair from the Einzbern marked the first casualty of the Fourth Heaven's Feel.

    "Irisviel..." There was a grimace from the King of Knights.

    "Lancer... finish her! Quickly!" And there, Lord El-Melloi started things once more.
