    We have got to get Kariya to say that, if only to see Sakura's reaction.

    I remember something about servant carrying their masters on servant speeds happening in the novel and anime - but, hey, whatever. Not important.

    They had reinforcement and Kiritsugu was almost dead at that time, so I doubt he could have managed.

    It's a matter of timing, IF the magus had time to do magic like reinforcement or some variant to enhance their body, sure... they WOULD survive.

    But no reinforcement, because it's wasteful of prana and people MIGHT notice prana usage? Kiritsugu and Maiya are squishy normal humans.

    That he survived the initial acceleration is commendable... but the sudden stop is the killer.

    I now desire/demand an omake where post canon Kerry has tea with us while Shinji, Sakura, and Shirou play with Saku-nee-chan and a pregnant Iri-chan. Saber watches on as a worried motherhen while drowning herself in tea drinking.


    It's the only way I'll ever forgive you q-q

    [X] Black Queen takes White Knight and then White King

    A thought occurs to you as you heard Lord El-Melloi's command, it wasn't one backed by the command seals. Not yet, at any rate.

    But you suspect it might become necessary soon, given the chivalrous nature of Lancer, knights tended to be rather full of honor and pride. Diarmuid Ua Duibhne of the love spot, first warrior of the knights of Fianna would be no different, you wager.

    Even in the modern day, you have encountered men who would have been knights in ages past if not by skill, then by their codes of chivalry.

    "My lord!" He turned upwards to where you had last saw the master of Lancer. "This isn't necessary."

    "What are you doing, Lancer?" That voice cut in once more. Sharped and annoyed and demanding. "This is your chance to defeat Saber."

    "Saber, I will defeat her. I swear on my honor! But it doesn't have to be like this. Not while her master is grieving. Please, my master." Honor and chivalry, it appeared wasn't quite dead here. Just bound by magic.

    "With my command seal, I order you..." ah, here it came. Perhaps, it would be a good idea to give Sakura your own commands.

    Thus your whispered words into her ears and nowhere else. <<Sakura, can you deal with Saber and Lancer?>>

    "I hereby propose." The words from the homunculus was soft... heard only by the servants. You can tell by the quirked lips of Gilgamesh that he had certainly heard and was amused. You know you're only hearing this because you are sharing the senses of Sakura.

    "My lord." There was desperation in Lancer's voice.

    "You shall come under my command, and your sword shalt control my fate."

    A slight nod and you continue on. <<Then do so, and recover the Einzbern.>>

    There was a lull, you suspect that El-Melloi was removing his glove, posing to look cool before he spoke and used his command seal. The fool. "Kill Saber with your full skill and power!"

    "Abiding by the summons of the Holy Grail, if you accede to this will and reason, answer me."

    With that, Lancer moved. And you get to appreciate the full speed available to a lancer class servant. There was a single clash of blades as Saber was pushed back.

    "Lancer." A fell look of outrage and despair colored Diarmuid's face as he turned to look at Saber.

    "I swear, I am all that is good in this eternal world."

    The way her hands trembled, wasn't a good indicator for Saber in this fight... with her source of prana removed, her anchor to the current world destroyed. She wasn't going to last long.

    "I am the disposer of evil in this eternal world."

    Still, she fought on in a desperate attempt to keep Lancer away from her companion. This was where Saver interrupted, interposing an arm that was sliced off by a crimson spear, while the shadow ribbons prevented the golden spear from piercing the side of your servant.

    "Saver." A look of gratitude is directed at your servant from Lancer, and yet shock.

    "You, of the seven heavens, clad in a trinity of words, come forth from the circle of constrain."

    She really was trying for it now. It looked as if the three family would get proper representation after the hiccup of the previous master of Saber's death.

    The Einzbern homunculus might even have a wish of her own now.

    "Guardian of the Heavens, accede to me, and my fate shall become your sword!"

    "I accept this pact under the name of Saber!" There was a pulse of prana and the Einzbern flared with power. And in counterpoint, so did Saber glow radiant as she accepted the contract.

    The silence that filled the wharf as the contract between Saber and the Einzbern was formalized was staggering as the prana flow was connected between the servant of the sword and a well of magical energy that is staggering.

    This presence was something that exceeded what Saber had earlier.

    In the moment that the connection was made, Saver has already regrown her arm.

    What Do?
    [X] Continue gunning for Einzbern and Saber, in competition with Lancer?
    [X] Continue helping Saber against Lancer?
    [X] Hang back and watch the fight?
    [X] Target Archer?
    [X] Target Rider?
    [X] Target Assassin?
    [X] Target Lord El-Melloi?
    [X] Write In.

    Writer's Note - My appologies for the delay and shortness of this post.

    But given what just happened, I felt it would be fair if you got to redecide your objectives, given the changes.

    [X] Target Lord El-Melloi?

    If he should so besmirch the honor of his servant, why should he get to stay around and make the war more badder?

    Saber was wounded before Rider's interference, yes?
    If so, we should capitalise on that either by taking her out now or by getting Lancer to retreat before she can kill Lancer and regain her hand.
    I really don't want to deal with a Saber, that has both hands, and is powered by a vengeful Iri.
    The thing is, Rider will most likely interfere, if we gang up on her.

    [X] Continue gunning for Einzbern and Saber
    -- [X] Let Lancer deal with Saber, you deal with the master.
    --- [X] Does Sakura have anything to help with dealing with Saber or Iri? Ask her.

    My current mindset for this confrontation is, "We're getting Saber Alter, no exceptions".

    Yes, Saber Alter is... actually almost essential. Saver isn't that suited to conflict really. But Saber? Oh, boy.

    But consider WHY there is a Saber Alter... and that Dark Sakura managed to take down almost every single servant...
