Alright like i said i'll see what i can get up on Wednesday, or Thursday depending how I feel. I'm mostly better. Still a bit stuffy but I've been dealing with a lot of issues the past two weeks or so. Felt dizzy for a few days which stopped and immediately transitioned into a cold. I'm hoping to not relapse into anything cause i'm tired of feeling sick.
@Enkryption Wasn't sure if you wanted Caster to reply to you doing your stuff so i left it out unless you wanted it. he's just going to tell you not to blow the bridge unless its necessary.
Archimedes can tell her that, if he wants, doesn't bother me. Although, she never expressly stated what her overall goals are out loud, nor did she radio in to anyone - she just activated her Dolls. So, unless Archimedes was eavesdropping on her and concluded that from her statement about, "C4 to spice things up," I'm not entirely sure how he would even know she plans to nuke the bridge.
So, there likely won't be anything from Bunbuku in this cycle, since Mordred decided to snub her, and brute force the entire scene into submission, unless Elise speaks to her directly.
To that, @Rezod92, Fran's likely to notice more nuanced things with [Bunbuku's Blessing] in her system, and can better speak her thoughts with her [Madness Enhancement] being alleviated (like from a migraine to a headache), as her mental health clears up from the Blessings of Intelligence, Scholastics, Advancement, and Affection working in tandem.
Additionally, her overall fighting and survival skills will have increased substantially - not in Ranks, but overall technique - and it will be easier for her to find favourable opportunities in combat, due to the Blessings of Martial Arts, Advancement, and Longevity.
And, lastly, she'll be a lot less shy in demeanor and word, thanks to the Blessing of Fearlessness and Affection working together.
As for Scarlett, she won't get a post, since her last action resulted in evidently nothing at all, save for Elise and Conner taking notice.
In one Bunbuku's legends, "she" is able to impart the Eight Virtue listed up in "her" Luck Parameter upon those that drank her tea. So, drinking her tea gives you: immunity to thirst, makes you better in scholastics and martial arts, makes you smarter over all, luckier in things you attempt, more popular with people around you, braver than you normally are, and you live a little longer, too.
Since its a core fundamental of her legend, figured I'd give you the 4-1-1 on how Fran's "buffed" - or anyone - when they drink her tea.
EDIT: Typos and misses sentences.
Also, yes. Bunbuku is a very good friend to have. That's why she charges for her friendship. Also a part of one of her three legends, which she was a performing tanuki that did a tightrope act. XD
Bunbuku and Fran might become fast friends, for real, since Bunbun really just lives for people to drink and enjoy her tea. Friends gets a 100% discount, too.
Only really did it because its in Mordred's personality to do so. Especially at the moment when she's still ticked off.
It slipped my mind to reply to this. Just popped back in, now.
I'm beyond not concerned with Mordred or anything she says or does at this juncture, and that hasn't nothing to do with the fact that Scarlett knocked down several buildings by blowing one up, and there was zero acknowledgement of that fact either in-character from Orson, Archimedes, or Leon, or in-universe as to how much sheer destruction of a terraforming act of that scale did.
Scarlett didn't kick a can down the street. She demo'd a building and played dominoes with skyscrapers.
Alright so do you want to listen to the two directors complain more? Do you want to fight both assassin, and archer. One's an accomplished warrior, the other is able to move through the air in multiple directions and breath fire. If it were one it'd be fair the two would be unfair without caster, or saber in the midst. Neither of them are in the blast zone, both have ways of gibbing Scarlett, and or Lancer in a 2v2. This is not a dig at Scarlett, or Lancer as a combatant. The simple fact is there will send skeletons, and they will use their phantasms. Either Assassin dodge tanks (disengage, protection from wind, his noble phantasm) Lancer since he (Assassin) probably can't outright beat them and let's archer super shot his way, or Assassin uses his superior mobility, and air dodges to evade our lancer while letting Archer snipe at him to prevent him from majorly getting in the way. I figured i'd save the drama, and skip the lecture from NPCs, and claims at throwing an unfair at someone. If I really wanted to be unfair I could throw in enemy Lancer who's at the dock but i'm not trying to be.
That's all fine and dandy, but, at the end of the day, that doesn't acknowledge the fundamental fact that I didn't ASK for ANY OF THAT. All that to do about the Servants or how they could kill Scarlett with a fart or a sneeze is unimportant to my issue:
I ASKED you acknowledge, in-universe, in a post, what Scarlett did to the city.
Orson (Director), Archimedes (Tactical Advisor), and Leon (Team Captain) can all be heard on the group comms - same as anyone else, because that's the established canon.
So, whatever they say to or about Scarlett opens a dialogue for Elise and Conner to either defend her actions or extrapolate their own ideas, which they can then voice, and further a discussion in the future, either as a team or peer-to-peer. Because, like it or not, Scarlett is a difficult character that is slowly bonding with the team, as Conner is coming to understand her through her actions and not just her words, and Elise is remembering what she was like years ago and how she has and hasn't changed.
Due to scenes being cut short or ignored where she is concerned, I haven't even gotten to properly showcase her actual plan to make her Attrition Ritual: The Scarlet Hive.
It doesn't matter that you didn't ask for it. Its the natural consequence of what is going to happen if I did actually acknowledge it. The enemy units will come, and they will attack, and try to kill Scarlett. I figured I was going to push it away for a moment so that I could get Rider's deal over with, and make it less awkward to have the team fall back for like three turns worth of respond time ignoring the fact Archer could just Amon-Ra strike at any time he wants at us, or you from across the gap. What I was expecting to happen is to booby trap some of the areas, hunker down, and rest while trying not to aggro. The fact of the matter is blowing up sections of the city is equivalent to kicking the beehive given they are clearly focused on something other than us, and once I establish that say Archimedes blames you for it, while whoever defends her or blames her over the comms, Assassin would still be on his way, and Archer would immediately turn his attention there. It would be less of an argument than an immediate 'can't let you do that' from Archer who knows the general location thanks to clairvoyance when checking the area where Mordred's mana burst shows up.
So I will acknowledge it right now if you want but that also means Archer's going to start shooting, and Assassin won't be to far behind which is probably worse because he's cloaked in presence concealment. while the other half of the group is at least three turns of combat away. Even if saber mana bursts her way there which would lessen the time it would still give just about the same amount of time for Archer to finish charging his prayer to unleash his phantasm.
I mean, even if enemies start coming now, that doesn't mean that we're going to stay in the same spot the entire time. Assassin's presence concealment is only scary until he has intent to launch an attack, at which point unless its some super high EX-Rank skill, Celtchar is going to notice him.
Also, I'm just gonna assume that Amon-Ra Archer is King Tut due to the name, but as funny as it would be trying to outrun the sunrise, Celtchar and Scarlett aren't directly by the buildings being toppled like Dominos.
The core issue here is just the lack of...anything, really, in regards to the scene happening. Not even a single word devoted to the world having any sort of reaction, and frankly, being threatened with getting ganked and you saying you're doing us a favor with not writing anything for Scarlett and Celtchar borders on insulting.
