The wanktopia second only to the culture in the strength of it's wankjuice...
Touhou. I didn't realize the similarity in their looks until I read the bit about angled blades and snakes.
Is it just me, or did you make Kallen turn out to be...related to Shirou Emiya? Because... let me quote from chapter 2 "freaky, freaky gift", the best at handling the knightmare frames, and...she's even a redhead!
Am I right in my guess?
My goodness. It fits. It really does make sense in my head.
Sooooo, shes gonna summon a genderbent Saber? Who was originally a genderbent King Arthur?
I really don't know how to react to that thought.
No. I have a premonition that Suzaku is gonna be the one to summon Saber. Kallen...just might be Shirou-like in some ways. Maybe a very little reality marble? Since Shirou had it...maybe it's passed on?
Soooo, Unlimited Knightmare/Guren/Kallen Works?
[SPOILER]You'd have to have been blind not to see this coming...[/SPOILER]
Wait. Why MUST it be a UBW ripoff? Why not try to make something else out of Emiya's abilities. Like...a more powerful Reinforcement...and what is that ability called? The one where you...understand the traits of what you are seeing? And apply it to Kallen. So...more Gundam G?
I wasn't exactly serious, pretty much everyone parodies UBW one form or another once Shirou or someone related is brought in....
Eowyn is a Woman, for some reason I am not surprised, but what's next Boudica and her daughters were actually men and noone had the guts to say it to their faces? Seriously Gender flipping the British heros gets old.
Its not only the British that gets this treatment, Nero got genderflipped aswell.
If it's LOTR Eowyn, she isn't Genderbent.
I'm guessing its a reference to the book character by the author, nevertheless the author has stated before now that long ago the title 'king' was in fact genderless.
I ought to go to japan and punch nasu in the %@^#*&^ face for that bull&^%$!
This is Nero!
Not that... that... I Don't Even Know WHAT That IS!
I Just saw 'Francis' Drake.
Urge to KIIIIIIILLLLLLLLL RIIIIIISSSSSSSIIIIIIINNNNNNNGGGGG!!!!!
Yeah. Especially since she's portrayed as heroic. No way in hell was Nero anywhere near that. Caesar would have been a much better choice for what they were trying to do.
THIS IS Drake!
THIS IS NOT Drake!!!!!!!!
Jack the Ripper says Hi.
(I perfer the Jack from Fate/Strange Fake... Then again, that story looked to be more crazy then the 4th and 5th holy grail war combined...)
I definitely considered it. And really, Lelouch has a spectacular affinity for Shirou, with Iskander coming in not far behind (Arturia is there, but the affinity is mostly due to his position in the royal family). It's just that he has an even higher affinity for Lancer.
Ah, no, Code R was canonical to Code Geass - it was the research project on CC. For this fic, at least, I'm positing that the original Code R research site (before they moved out to Narita) was in Fuyuki - CC responded better in a high-quality spiritual ground, though they didn't actually know why.
That said, if any group does have Avalon banging around, it'd be Britannia.
Good guess, yes, she does. Half-fae. Clovis's freakout on seeing her (other than the 'fuck I'm gonna die' freakout) was because her glamour was going haywire - she doesn't have the best control over it, and the generation of rapidly shifting impressions can give people a very creeped out feeling.
Well, non-casting Masters have been selected (notably Uryuu from Fate/Zero, along with, of course, Shirou, who casted, but incredibly poorly). He was poked by the Grail in like the last five minutes and didn't even notice.
... People lined up as Saber Masters really don't have good luck with Lancers, eh?
I'll note that the name Eowyn for the figure involved actually comes from official Code Geass materials. I didn't invent it
Though, that said, the British Isles do have a lot of fae mythology floating about.
Thank you, though Lelouch added that aspect himself
As far as outright resistance goes, it's actually one of Rider's class abilities. Though you can have it as a personal skill (Lancelot kept an E rank magic resistance even with it actively degraded by his status as Berserker), Gil isn't desperately associated with magic resistance and has a load of other skills already.
That said, of course, he could always have a goodie available to resist or absorb magic.
He is insanely tough - that's basically how he works, soak it and hit back harder. Though as Takara noted, he's pretty close to the most sluggish a Servant gets.
Ah, okay, to address this here. The Britannian royal family is not one that broadly knows about magic. However, circuits do have some beneficial effects even when mostly inactive, so Britannian royals with better circuits have tended to survive to pass down their genes longer.
It's only close to a eugenics program in the last two hundredish years (Britannia sorta went way off the rails around then), but Britannia had always had a 'the best of the royal family rules' mode of inheritance, so the royalty does tend to get slightly better with each generation. Take a look at Irish tanistry for the closest RL relative.
And at varying times, individual members of the Britannian royal family have known about the various supernatural aspects of the verse and manipulated it to their benefit - including Code and Geass. At present, Charles is more in on the Geass side, but is at least personally aware of the Mage's Association.
Well, I guess we're sort of lucky in that account. Lancelot's truck is sitting next to Clovis's G-1, unstaffed (because the staff dragged the other staff the hell away before they died violently).
Well, Lelouch isn't exactly well-equipped to hold a prisoner at that point (I mean, he's one frail guy, alone, trying to drag a prince out of the middle of a military encampment?), and is sort of in a massively pissed off killing rage.
Heh. Yes. She can actually shapeshift and grow those wings when she gets ticked off enough.
(Kokoro's appearance basis was Patchouli, of course)
Now that you point it out, she actually could be.
Damn, now I have to decide if Shirou's original last name, before the fire, was Urobuchi or Stadfelt.
That said, it wasn't planned. She does have a pretty good knack for knightmares (being one of the main ace pilots of the series).
Nah, Kallen would be his ancestor, not his descendant. And RMs generally don't pass on - they're a manifestation of psyche, not heritage.
Well, Caesar was... capable. He certainly, however, was not 'heroic' in any definition that includes a moral dimension. This's the guy who personally killed about a sixth of the population of Gaul in five years.
The 'Germans attacked Roman military camp, killing 74, so he went out and massacred every man, woman, and child, by his estimate around 430 000' bit also stands out.
Capable man, but certainly not heroic.
I didn't say Caesar'd make sense as a heroic figure, just that he's a much better famous Roman Emperor to turn into an Arturia-ripoff than Nero.
For the third time, I have the urge to create a TvTropes page. Would you like me to do it, if you thinks you will finish this story ?
There is a lot of original feeling, both from Code Geass and Fate/stay night, good characterization, we can see the gears in Lelouch's brain turning. I am still waiting for his memetic bad luck to kicks in. I will subscribe to this thread.
Lancer being physically based on Nue is a delicious bonus.
EDIT: There is many alternate character interpretations around Nero. Don't be too quick to lash him.
I don't know, the people of Rome seemed to praise him for the slaughter, hero is in the eye of the beholder.
Yes! One of my great ambitions!
Today went off fairly well (aside from a missed opportunity due to a failure in communication), but... uh. Well, I'll reveal one of the personal skills Lancer has.
Protection of the Fairies - that same ability Lancelot had that jacked up his luck stat.
Inverted - for her it functions negatively.
Yeah, I'm not the best at character design, so I tend to yoink them. Always useful to have a strong mental image of what you're working with, and a physical image is great for that.
Well, going by the followup response, he wasn't talking about the moral dimension (you're right in that Nero is probably one of the least asshattish Roman emperors), but the 'total badass' dimension - Nero doesn't exactly have any significant military achievements.
Now with a suggested sountrack: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8V_btnGyFM
Why ¡'m thinking on Morgana Le'Fay when i see Lancer?
Well we aren’t through the first part yet but still, I have seen enough.
And I most definitely like what I see.
Technically speaking it is excellent. No obvious grammatical errors and the style flows well. Interaction, what there has been of it, looks ok. I will hold off judgment till we have the show and tell phase. Action is ok, although I hope for a bit more description once main characters start throwing down in earnest.
Characterisation... honestly I can’t say much. I know little of CG or the canon Fate characters. They all seem well put together though.
‘Grandpa’ was most amusing. Hope he eats a bullet somewhere along the line.
Lancer. I have no idea. Only shot in the dark I have is Eowyn, the local Boudica. She did say she could be a rider and Boudica was supposedly a chariot user.
I am very glad that someone has finally put some use to dematerialization. Of the many, many broken things Servants have that is the least used.
So just to comfirm: as he had not summoned a Servant Clovis's seals get recycled to a new master?
This is a war involving Gil. Noone else can be considered broken.
Even with his magic resistance and independent action nerfed he is broken.
Spartacus sound rather like one of the very early WoW builds. Specifically the Ret Bomb paladin.
Ok question on updates: are you working from a backlog or is that a typical writing speed?
I know someone who suggested that Lancer is Scáthach, just to throw that out to all of you.
