has anyone taken this chapter for a story?

I-I-I literally can't stop laughing. Baka-Shirou deciding to recklessly try and get Winged by Ilya without even checking to make sure she's an Ashikabi. And then being an arch-nemesis to Kuu. How the hell does even manage to do that when he has the emotional depth of a sink? Their instinctual rivalry is awesome!
It starts out being a sweet story, where we can see Shirou grow up without the Ideal that colors his life in canon, and still be happy. Then it goes on to be an entertaining story as we're introduced to Ilya and Kuu, and Shirou's bizarre relationship with them. And then he just has to prove the fact that he's completely insane by trying to get Winged, and ends up with a semi-Ashikabi (someone he Reacts to, but that is unable to Wing him for some reason) that he then moves in with in order to prepare for the War.
I don't think I'd like to read the actual War (because it's been done too many times, and I've played through the game enough times that it's actually something that's unattractive for me to read about), but I think it'd be really interesting to see some kind of War-Epilogue where they reflect on the outcome of it, along with some of the events during it.
Like, learning what happened to the characters we know and love, or hate (cough-Shinji-cough), or how Masters and Servants reacted to Shirou's presence. To see if Shirou manages to actually get Winged by Ilya, or if someone steals him away, or if he ends up Reacting to lots of girls and somehow ends up with a harem (which would undoubtedly make Uzume extremely proud).
There's lots of things I'd like to see, but I don't think I'd enjoy reading about the actual War. So yeah, this Prologue leaves me longing for more, even if you keep insisting that I shouldn't expect anything. It really is a most wonderful story.

I really like your Shirou characterisation, and the Ilya interaction is great.
Cool crossover, look forward to more!

Not a bad start, and while you made your distaste of Sekirei apparent in No One Left Behind, I wouldn't mind seeing some more of this.

Are you kidding me? A miya trained, IBM enhanced, Avalon-toting Shirou? Fuck..
| brunofanofk chapter 7 . 9/3/2013
please, write Fate Stay Shrike
| cerokun chapter 7 . 8/31/2013
So Ilya's nature disqualifies her from being an Ashikabi, right? Hmm... Is Saber eligible? How long ago did the Sekirei arrive on Earth?
*drops to knees and begins begging*
Please please please please continue the story!

I definitely enjoyed it, but still can't help but get my hopes up. I wonder which Servant Shirou will get set up with if Illya is planning on using Avalon to summon Saber. I just hope it doesn't end up like the fourth war with Illya as a decoy master and grail vessel. It seems really faithful to canon, assuming Shirou is actually descended partially from a Sekirei, and I just hope the time spent reviewing was small enough that you'd consider continuing for our enjoyment. Anyhow, wonder how the Kusano-Minato relationship is going for Kusano to have such a dere side for Shirou. I would feel worse for Kuu that Shirou is just ignoring her to chase after Illya if I couldn't remember how canon Fate routes usually ends up for Illya.

I'm still confused, will Shirou have a Servant? As it'll be very unfair as he's a "half-sekirei" or even a Sekirei now, he can goes toes to toes on a NP-less Servant I think
I'd love to see who will be Shirou's Ashikabi, Ilya is fine, but I'd like to find Saber as his Ashikabi XD
