To Guest and Loud Person: forgot about that, but anyway Herc still won’t be able to take on an entire faction (maybe the Black faction but Red is still really OP)

This has no right being this good.

To Milan rogue, you forgot that in this story. Amakusa Shirou does not have access to the Grail. Thus Karna does not have big supply of mana to spam his Noble Phantasm.
Jeanne on the other hand is summoned by the Grail and has mana provided to her and is shared with the Servant she has. Thus Heracles is able to go all out like he does when he has Illya as his Master.
| The Loud Person chapter 1 . 4/24
To Milan rogue, you do realize that Karna drains a lot of mana, and he can't just spam his Noble Phantasm alot, especially since his armor is constantly active than it is passive.
The reason he was even able to go all out at all is due to Amakusa Shirou using the Grail to give the Servants of Red large amount of mana, something that he does not have in this story as he has.
Jeanne on the other hand is summoned by Grail and her mana comes from the it, and it is shared by all the Servants on her side. So Heracles has a chance to go all out like the way he did with Illya. And there is no Gilgamesh here, thus making him the most physically powerful Servant in the war. Same with Cu Chulainn who is not nerfed by Kotomine and is capable of going all out. And he doesn't always have to use Gae Bolg, since he is the kind of guy that rather enjoys his fight before he decides to finish it.

For Mighty C
Karna would beat Heracles any day, he could just spam nuke until he lost all his life, not to mention that berserker is Heracles’ weakest class

Oh my lord YES!
FINALLY a fic that actually showcases how stupidity powerful berserker is. You know, the absolute monster that's most definitely the most dangerous straight fighter servant there is!
Honestly Ruler could have just let Berserker loose and just waited a few days if she really wanted to win the war. To my knowledge there's no one on either Red or Black who has enough firepower to take him down.
Go you magnificent beast, go...
Do Illya proud.

I really want a conversation between mordred and saber, despite what mordred thinks saber really has changed, I just think she doesn’t know how to deal with the situation either because she still doesn’t blame mordred, and she learned how to love with shirou, not to mention accept her past, I think it wouldn’t be beyond saber to try to connect, at least somewhat, after all she did ask mordred’s master about her, I just want them to talk

Cu Chulainn is considered the greatest Celtic warrior, equal to Herakles or Artoria when on his home ground.
It would be nice he got the respect he deserves and getting the chance to show his true strength now that he is not nerfed by his master and has better mana supply provided.

For those who complain that Artoria is cold to Mordred:
Stop and think about how Mordred essentially destroyed her entire kingdom over a tantrum. What did you want her to do back then? Actually give her the throne? As much as I like Mordred as a character, she's way too impulsive to be a proper king at the time. The fact that she rebelled and destroyed Camelot because she was rejected only served to prove this further.
And that's without mentioning that she's a bastard child created by Morgan Le Fae, would you suddenly decide to hand over your life's work to a child that you never knew existed? The fact that Artoria's not trying to cut Mordred's head off just meeting her is already a fucking miracle.

In case people are confused to why Medea has a grudge against Atalanta, here's a bit of lore for you.
In the Typemoon version of Medea's legend. After they finish their quest to retrieve the Golden Fleece, King Pelias refused to hand over the throne to Jason as promised. So Medea had a plan. During one of King Pelias' visits Medea killed his servant infront of him and instantly resurrecting him. Saying that it's a spell of immortality.
King Pelias, impressed by the spell, asked her to do the same thing on him. So she did, except that she didn't brought him back alive afterwards. With King Pelias dead, Jason was free to take the throne as intended.
However, the Argonauts regarded this as heresy. Calling Medea a witch, they chased her out of the country along with Jason. Eventually leading to the tragic downfall in their original legend.
Atalanta was amongst one of the Argonauts that had kicked her out and Medea is pissed that she was on her side during the ordeal.
