    I wonder, perhaps that was a roll to see if Tokiomi would recognize Saver Sakura.

    Well, he's a genius Magnus. Of course, so was El Melloi, and we all know what happened to him.

    His plan would've been brilliant 60 years ago!

    And also if his own (backup) Servant didn't unintentionally fuck him over. Poor El-Melloi.

    I think he's pretty fly for an Asian guy. He can really rock the suit. And he must be pretty damn good with his finances to make a profitable living studying magic to burns jewels like his does. And he even tracked down an artifact to summon Gilgamesh while remaining solvent when such a thing should have ridiculous porperties for research.

    And he must have a rather firm will to be using magic with the way Nasuverse magic burdens anyone who is not a masochist.

    [X] Spend the day familiarizing with Saver, we will not take the initiative in this War
    [X] Chat about the events that are yet to happen.


    Naturally, things being what they were, you find yourself driving Saver around town, taking in the sights...

    Getting her familiar with the changes to the city of Fuyuki from the one of her time.

    You are keenly aware of just how much knowledge was key in any conflict from your time as a journalist. With a passion for photography and a desire to go as far away from the Matou back then, it was only natural that you took the most distant of jobs no matter the danger...

    And thus, you were exposed to war such as men waged it in the current day and age. Armed with nothing but your wits and camera, you toured the war-torn regions of the world as a photojournalist.

    You knew exactly how much knowledge and information was worth in any conflict.

    More so than any arm-chair tactician or magus hidden in the safety of his home.

    You also had an appreciation for how much damage modern weaponry could do to fragile humans, not that you would go that far. But you suspect that the hired killer of the Einzbern would.

    The departure of the children along with your brother was only sensible in that regard.

    Finding out more of things to come from Saver. That was only reasonable, right?

    Still, the information that she provides is... troubling and raises uncomfortable issues; such as Zouken alive in her time, and you supposedly dying during the grail war. And what came afterwards...

    You can only speculate that Saver... no, Sakura was from a possible alternate future. An alternate timeline and reality as it were.

    Which was complete science fiction... or implied the usage of the Second Magic by the Holy Grail.

    Either of which was possible.

    - - -​

    That night, you returned from the familiarization expedition... with delicious take out. The food was good at the Taishan chinese restaurant. You even ordered the specialty of the chef there, mapo tofu, at the recommendation of Sakura.

    Dinner... was suffering, as you sweated and endured the mapo tofu that your servant clearly enjoys.

    Was this the power of a heroic spirit?!?!

    Your mouth burned, the burning heat from within your stomach had your face red with sweat... you sweated and wept and ate... because this was something recommended by Sakura.

    You suspect that you're being punished for something.

    What... you're not sure yet.

    But you're certain that you had upset her in some manner. Surely, no sane being could enjoy something THIS spicy.

    "Mmmmm... it's nice to be able to enjoy something this spicy," Or maybe not... you thought to yourself pass the agony of the meal. "Gives life a little flavor when you taste sharp contrasts... would you like some more beer, Kariya-ojiisan?"

    You could only nod helplessly at the offer of beer.

    The winter beer was light and fizzy, the contrast between the mild taste of the beer and the spicy mapo tofu.

    That was something you hadn't thought possible, a difference between heaven and hell as it were.

    You sigh in relief as you sip at the beer before returning your attention to the rice and mapo tofu.

    Before you could resume eating, you paused at what your familiars was showing you...

    Hidden amongst the trees outside of the Tohsaka estate, your familiars lurked, hidden amongst the tree leaves. Watching, observing...

    And what they had to show was... interesting.

    [X] Assassin; the Servant designed to sneak and prey on masters unaware, caught and killed so easily? And in such a...direct manner?

    Clearly, a set-up. For what; you cannot discern, not yet anyways. Still, something is afoul in the state of Denmark...

    The dice roll? By the way... was to determine if Tokiomi was able to convince people of his plan...

    What did you think you just witnessed? The plan of Kirei, professional Enforcer? or the plan of Tohsaka Tokiomi, magus and arm-chair tactician?

    And by convince, I mean Kirei, his father, Gilgamesh and Assassin...

    As a fyi... IF it's within reason, I'm willing to allow for spy shenanigans write in... ie you have ACTUAL people with telescopic cameras observing the Tohsaka mansion, the Einzbern mansion and so on...

    Are you SURE you want to go down that route? Because it's possible... they're just exotic familiars... and they're something that IS possible...
