    As for raising kids and such... I will note that this requires something VERY important...

    You SURVIVE the Holy Grail War.

    Thing is though this is already known. He had dossiers on everyone. He did his homework. And really just leaving them at home or biting the bullet and setting up a contract with that man to leave them with Aoi is good enough.

    At least it should be considering the fact that AFAIK he never decided to skip town to kidnap here for the ultimate leverage of ultimate destiny.

    And if Kiri's barrier breaker hax is good enough for him to trample up in here we're fucked anyway.

    So we should just have Sakura sink our place in shadow to bolster the defences...


    Wait a tick. Why can't we just go to the temple where the physical grail thing is and have sakura call to Angra mainyu?

    Are you SURE you want to do this? Calling out ALL THE WORLD'S EVIL?

    While I suspect Kiritsugu couldn't skip town because he had to supply Saber with prana and the grail wouldn't help maintain Saber outside of Fujiki.I conceed on the already known part.

    Calling angra mainyu requires several servants to have died in order to be done. Also calling all the evils in the world is likely to be a bad end for us and everyone around us.

    Okay, a few points of this... after liking every post that is more than just a vote.... ;3

    Given that this is NOT a prequel to Fate/Stay Night, the ending isn't set in stone. Which means that your choices DO matter and could result in HORRIFIC bad ends for all life (or at least all human life) on earth...

    As for Shinji becoming evil scum-puppy and such? Let me put to you this way...

    She got adopted, he likes her and stuff and that's fine.
    He discovers about magic.
    He then learns he CAN NOT use magic, but that Sakura got brought in to the family because she could. (he sees it as stealing his inheritance).
    He EXCELS in school, everything he does is GOOD! Masterful even.... and he is told it DOESN'T matter, only magic does... resentment grows.
    He has a best friend by the name of Shirou, Sakura gets in between them and steals him by virtue of making Shirou CHOOSE between him or Sakura and he choose Sakura.

    Are you surprised that Shinji has a HATE-ON for Sakura?

    And then his grandfather who terrifies him tells him that he has to rape Sakura? How isn't he going to end up screwed up and twisted?

    In any case, Shinji's father is still alive, Kariya considers Sakura his daughter and is the head of the family. None of that inheritance stuff should come into play, since he really isn't in line for it, anymore. Even if we don't survive, I'd think.

    All we really have to do, I imagine, is be a decent uncle. But, in the end, we are just his uncle, while Sakura is our daughter.

    On a side note, what is going on with our brother, anyway? We took on the mantle of the head of the family, so he can pretty much do whatever he wants with out any of the pressure. Are our relations with him good, now that we're back, fighting in the war and having taken all the responsibilities off his shoulders?

    Matou Byakuya?

    He's actually busy... doing and setting things up for Kariya overseas... Sakura and Shinji are going to join him in canada~ for the duration of the 4th holy grail war.

    Kariya wanted to summon his servant FIRST before getting them out of the country.

    Damnit. Where are we supposed to get a five-year-old advisor, then? We can't kidnap one, Caster's got that market cornered.

    Yup. Let's stick to the plan. Civilian muggels are only liabilities (or consumable resources, for some) in Fuyuki for the duration of the Heaven's Feel.
    Let's get the family abroad, while it lasts.

    On another note:
    SAKURA should be aware that there's nothing to be won in the war. I wonder when/whether she's gonna bring it up.
    She seems to just want to reunite the family. (
    ) But as it stands, that does only necessitate disposing of Tokiomi; not winning the war.

    [X]I have a plan so cunning... you could pin a tail on it and call it a weasel.

    Breakfast is... tense.

    That's the right word to use as you, your servant, along with Sakura and Shinji part-take of the excellent meal made by your servant.

    It was a good meal, but there was the unspoken expectation from your servant about what happened to Zouken, the sensation that if the wrong thing was said that there would be hell to pay if command seals were not used.

    And even then, there would still be trouble.

    Your adopted daughter and nephew are not sure what's going on, why the mysterious big sis was upset and why you were tense, but they could tell something was up.

    Thus, breakfast was a quiet and tense affair.

    With breakfast done, the two children went off to finish packing up for their trip to Canada with your brother, while you and your servant did the clean-up of the dishes.

    It was also here that the delayed discussion was held.

    "I am uncertain what happened to you in your past. But the Zouken that you knew died a year ago when I became head of the Matou house," You speak up eventually after mulling over what you should say.

    "Really~ now," The slow drawl indicated that she didn't quite buy it... that she could in a way sense the connection you held to the crestworms.

    "Indeed," You say with finality.

    "The crest worms do preserve his memories, his soul, as they do for every one who has been properly connected to the worms." You speak up in response to her raised eyebrow.

    "I could get rid of them for you, Kariya~ ojiisan," she eventually responded, almost as if offering something very intimate.

    That offer... that notion of what she offered... that got a shudder from you as you looked at her. She open your mouth before closing and eventually let what you think of said offer out of your mouth.

    In words, yes... but also in the countless multitude of voices, the unity of the Zolgens and Matou. "I would rather you didn't. Such a thing would end me."

    Thankfully, this is when your phone interrupts the conversation.

    Picking it up, you get confirmation from one of your hired private investigators that the Einzbern master had arrived by plane with her servant.

    Well... that made it three for three, the founding families were now 'gathered' in Fuyuki for the fourth Heaven's Feel. To be sure, ther ewas also the magus from the clocktower, Lord El-Melloi, who was holded up in the Hyatt hotel.

    That left three unknowns, admittedly, you suspect that the other three known masters had stacked the cards as much as possible in their favor, from Tokiomi and his alliance with the Church supervisor and his executor son, to the Einzbern master and her hired killer. You're not so sure about what Lord El-Melloi had in store, but it's likely to be something nasty.

    You, on the other hand, didn't really have a wish, and didn't really want to win the holy grail war... not in truth and hadn't bothered to stack the deck. That in its own way, by acting contrary to the expectations of everyone... was a trump.

    - - -

    [​IMG]

    With their things packed, the children were ready to be shipped off to the distant and mysterious land of Canada where your brother has been acting in your interests in term of purchasing properties and businesses to help the growth of your wealth, one must spend money to gain money. And money translated to more temporal power.

    With that, you enjoy one of the few luxuries that you hold from when you lived on your own... driving.

    To be sure, it was an older car that you drove. A classic, as it were. Money was good for something, like being able to afford one off custom cars made in the old days, as it were.

    And thus, you drove to the air port.

    Along the way, you passed the Einzbern master and her servant Saber. You are certain that your servant and the servant of the sword had a good look at each other as you passed by in the opposite directions. But beyond that... did it matter?

    They would meet once more on the battlefield.

    It didn't take too long ere the children are safe on the plane and flying to Canada, where they would be picked by your brother.

    By the way, how much do the crest worms influence Kariya, anyway? Is he the one in control with them providing skills, knowledge and occasional advice or can they force him to do things he wouldn't do on his own or drastically alter how he acts in certain situations?


    It would be irritating if we couldn't ask how Sakura would go about removing them or what the results might be. I mean, Kariya is unlikely to have his families legacy destroyed after taking on the mantle of the head of the family, but finding out more about this couldn't hurt.

    Seeing how he said it would end him, most likely Kariya is already a worm within his own body.

    I got the distinct feeling that that was the crest worms/past crest carriers talking about themselves, not Kariya. That was one of the reasons I want to know how much control and influence the worms have over Kariya.

    Besides, this Sakura suffered under the worms for a long time, so I imagine she picked up a few things on how they work. Maybe she wants to kill Kariya along with the worms by removing them, maybe she wants to just remove the worms and save Kariya from them. We wont know until we ask. Well, ask and get an honest answer.
