In some ways, Miya is more Shirou's mother than Takami is, and she is his mother-in-law now. Six times over. And you can tell Miya is a natural mother hen when she solves disputes between her children with household chores.
Tsukiumi, that was rude! You wouldn't want anyone interrupting your Norito time, would you? ;)
Speaking of which, did they ever call hazmat to deal with all of the mercury and body parts?
That was a nasty fight. Yashima really got screwed over, didn't she? The only way it could have been worse is if she belonged to the Ashikabi of the South. :(
If Shirou didn't want to get bitten, he should have told Kuu to wait until the pickup was done. Children know that "maybe later" usually means "never". Pushing her away like that will only make her worse.
It is telling that he questions Kazehana's presence, but not Uzume. I'm guessing Uzume brought a 'friend' home.

Matsu's lair is the logical place for info drops, since she's the cute Magician of Information. (Good Magician Humphrey being the homely one.) The workshop is where magecraft happens, so that is the logical place to talk about that. The dining room is the only place everybody gets together, since the only other room large enough is the baths, and Miya would go strange if they tried that. The only other option would be the courtyard, but there is no reason (like eating) to gather. Any other arrangement would be forced.
I like Yukari. Normal sisters are /nothing like her/ but she simply does not do normal. It works because she is as socially awkward as Shirou and their mother, and doesn't really know how to act the part, having been an only child most of her life, and her only source of information is even more screwed up than she is.
Uzume and Homura both need serious moral support here, and Shirou is one who has been through dirty, nasty, unreasonable situations, so he can understand more than most. I'm surprised nobody else commented on his scars.
Shirou protecting Shii-chan's innocence from Yukari rather than the other way around is hilariously awkward. The question is, who is really the bigger pervert, Matsu or Yukari?
Norito practice is going to be hilarious. Shirou is going to have a hard time with both Homura and Kuu.
Looking forward to finding out what Shirou's mask is. Anything that makes Miya eep has to qualify as a Lovecraftian horror.

'Always wear a cup.' That is good advice. Ouch.
Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you.
By 'distorted', I'm assuming you mean 'warped'. Can't really blame any of them, either. You can't walk through hell like they have and come out unscathed.

I love that ward. It is exactly the kind of trolling that Takamichi Nanoha would appreciate.
Lets see, 97mph is 142 feet/second. 12 yards is 36 feet. So about 0.25 seconds. That Archibald must have been a fast talker. He should have considered a career as an auctioneer instead of a dartboard. ;)
(Yes, I know he used Shirou's casting time, but the mental picture was too funny.)
Still, Shirou really shouldn't be surprised that his life isn't that simple.

Matsu is a fun character to read. Her playfulness nicely masks a girl capable of deep insights. Shirou did well to claim her. Still doesn't excuse her corrupting Akitsu. ;)
I'm looking forward to finding out what Shirou's horror factor looks like. I think. Maybe. On second thought... *hides*
He isn't going to be able to keep the Clock Tower secret from his Sekirei much longer.

I just finish reading both "Hill of Swords" and "In Flight", and these two stories have one thing in common: they're great.
So thank you for writting both of them, it was a pleasure to spend long hours to read them.

I admit being as skeptical of Shiina as Shirou was, but dang I like the kid. As for Shirou giving the Big Brother Chat, there is actually a very simple way to handle it. All he really needs to say is that he feels about Yukari the same way Shiina feels about Kuu-chan.

Don't disrespect the Yukari-baka-chan! We have officially missed her silliness!
Musubi getting them thrown out of the pet shop was hilarious.
I can't blame you for stealing Kurenai. I would steal hear too. ;)
That was an epic battle. I don't have the words.
If Shirou wants to keep his sister safe, there is still an empty room at Izumi House.

He launches the sword at 97 mph. Lets say the man's fifty meters away - the length of a long swimming pool - and that they were shouting at one another, rather than Shiro getting close enough to lunge. The Archibald had his defense ready, but needed to say that pretentious latin phrase beforehand.
97 miles per hour is 43 meters per second. He would have to chant "Fervor, mei sanguis, Automoportum defensio" in under... 1.2 seconds? I get that he's skilled, but there's got to be some limit to how much you can compress your chants.
That fight should have gone "Fervor, mei-" followed by a splattering sound as an idiot Archibald exploded.
Other than that, it was a good fight scene.

That has to be the single most screwed up cliffhanger I have ever seen. Well done.

Another excellent chapter. There is no need to apologize for not having an action sequence here. It would have spoiled the mood these scenes needed.
Kuu-chan wants a meow-meow because she is one. _/

Oh, he finally figures it out, does he? I'm actually hoping Rin and Saber show up, just to see their reactions.

I'm beginning to think that if a certain pair of ex-girlfriends walked in on that dog pile, they would take one look at it, get out their cameras for the evidence, and then climb right on in.
