| FGO 23.0 Hopes chapter 15 . 9/13/2021
Every chapter with Anderson makes me want him to be the main ally Servant in Fate/Grander Order, or 3.0, or whatever the sequel to FGO will be.
Just him roasting the crap out of every Servant you summon.
(Hopefully FGerO will also be less xenophobic and include traditional servants and less space multiverse BS)

lancelotyea see there's this location we go to on a daily basis. Loads of that essence we need to strengthen Servants. You're known for being a legend at clearing a wave there with a single strike"

What a ride this was.
| Mimamin chapter 1 . 10/9/2020
Gonna open by saying I know little about how the actual Camelot singularity plays out, but I did know a few highlights thanks to certain videos, so I don't believe getting spoiled of the rest here is a big deal. I'd take that over missing this masterpiece any day, thank you!
I'm not going into detail on your skill at writing, because I already said plenty on my early review on Fragments of Chaldea, but if I were to add something... is that I absolutely adore how you handle fighting scenes. You showed glimpses of this on the main story, with X's chapter as well as Beowulf's, but to see it consistently in here really cemented that fact.
It's really the first time I see narrative interruptions in a writing piece as a way to add to combat, rather than for purely comedic purposes, and I've got to admit that it works surprisingly well. Dunno if it's your way of doing it, or if the technique as a whole generally gives off the same impression, but in the end, what matters is that it just works nicely. The onomatopoeia (I think that's the right word on English, if Google and my dictionary aren't lying to me) after most of these interruptions was also interesting to see, in a good way, too.
The overall plot was really engaging, of course, but since I lack the knowledge to difference canon events from stuff that's just adapted directly from the official event - bar the obvious ones, like those involving servants and things from the main story -, I'm going to refrain from commenting anything about it. However, I do like the way you adapted the story regardless, and a lot of scenes were really touching and awesome and sad and wholesome, all in equal parts (the last stretch of the final battle was especially awesome, with all the feelings and morals and wishes finally exploding into one hell of an ending to such a nerve-wracking fight; really well done there).
I honestly don't like drama myself, because I hate the feeling of hopelessness you need to get through first before enjoying the rewards for all the bad moments, but this one has been of the few works I've read if this genre that really made me glad I decided to stick up with it until the end. The tears of both sadness and joy I shed up at this work should be able to fill an entire glass, I swear.
And I think that's all I wanted to say? I skipped commenting about the characters and how well their development was handled, but that's another thing I already commented on the aforementioned review; it felt redundant to bring that up again.
I really hope we can see the Lion King again in the main story at some point, since I'm the kind of kid who grew up with Dragon Ball way of handling most villains (y'know, by reforming them), and I personally feel that seeing her getting to learn more about her last second epiphany would be pretty cathartic to watch. Plus, seeing a certain young king's complex dropping onto a potentially unaware Lion King ought to be nothing short of hilarious.
Regardless, this was an incredible read, and not enough words can truly drive home how amazing it is. You did a great job, and I hope to see more of it as I continue on the main story (and the rest of the supplements, eventually). Until the next review, author!
| freddy.lane.1 chapter 20 . 9/13/2020
God damn, was that a rollercoaster of emotions, revelations, and acceptance. Took me a good 6 straight hours too read. Ahhh, i need a break. Great side story man, with this done i can get back to the main story.
| Ikezawa Hanako chapter 20 . 6/1/2020
I was just sticking with Fragments at first but I decided to give this one a read. I should have read it sooner :) The Endgame vibes is pretty neat with the Round Table being reunited and all but another favorite moment of mine would be Emiya's journey finally coming full circle, which kinda reminded me of the "Hey that's hell you're walking into" scene from UBW.
A worthwhile read overall ;)
| Chronos the tyrant of time chapter 16 . 4/25/2020
Bro in awe at what you have built the fragments in combination with this stories i consider the definitive fgo expirience man. Just one hang up why did you refer to arturia as the young one in comparison to the lion king or her lancer version thats wrong. Arturia just didnt mature for her usage of excalibur and avalon while the lion king and lancer used the lance so they matured but their age an expiriences should be the same man
| Guest chapter 10 . 3/28/2020
I demand an explanation!
Xuangzang has fucking EX RANK LUCK!
She CAN'T be unlucky in anyway!
So I demand an explanation for her dead because reality should have made so impossible for it to happen!
| GeonteneArgon00 chapter 12 . 1/10/2020
"Even in a different age, and among different people, he would surely entrust his legacy to someone like himself... He'd be proud of you, Mashu"
... OOOOHHH, the irony of those words, considering what the "Moonlit/Lostroom" OVA has implied Galahad's real personality and beliefs to be. If you ever do adapt that part of the story, I imagine Mash and the Round Table might be pretty fairly stunned to know their paragon thought so clinically and apathetically about mankind's future _;
| Guts and Toes chapter 2 . 10/2/2019
Thats surprising. scatach did not react at bedievere's np?
| GrandMaster45 chapter 20 . 3/11/2019
Welp I finally finished it, and I must say that during the entire time I was reading this I kept forgetting that I'm reading a fanfic, and I mean that in a good way Cruz this is novel worthy material. Grammar and spelling errors aside, this was a fantastic read all around. You did a great service to the FGO community by providing what the original game didn't, such as the relationship building between Mordred and Arturia, Lancelot becoming a father figure to Mash, as well his and gawain finally starting again. I really wish we had more scenes like those in the game but we got this! Anyways, this was great and I look forward to reading more of Fragments and getting to the second supplement.
| GrandMaster45 chapter 19 . 3/10/2019
Wow...just...wow...I don't even know where to begin to describe this chapter other being epic all around, with Gilgamesh assistance, Bedivere sacrifice, and Artoria vs the Lion King. I honestly wish this is all that happened in the actual singularity in the game but now it's my head cannon. Magnificent job.
| GrandMaster45 chapter 18 . 3/9/2019
YEOUUUWWW! MORDRED! Seriously I was rooting for her till the end like damn! Also Gawain and Lancelot teaming up was great too.
| GrandMaster45 chapter 17 . 3/6/2019
Wow...best...seige ever with Blackbeard and Drake leading the fight, King Hassan kicking ass by defying the sun, sorry sun bros, and Agravain vs Sir Lancelot...like wow so much is happening. Can't wait to reach the conclusion.
