    Interesting i can see that happening. Didn't Saber said that the Fuyuki park appears an RM to Servants because of what happened there or something?

    I trust in Sanda's world building, not so much in Sakurai's. I'd say that, for the most part, it's Sanda building upon Sakurai's stuff.

    Congrats, and thanks for the shout out given that I failed to read more than a fraction of the thing! I'll try to amend that mistake asap.

    Definitely was a pleasure to read. It was long, but if it can be that good every time, long just means you have more flavor to savor.

    Congratulations on the victory! Do let us know if that quartz turns up anything worthwhile.

    I also love author commentary, so this entry from you (...from You?) is a real treat.

    I hadn't beta read for someone before so I don't know how helpful I actually was but I have to say that this was an utter delight to read, I was unfamiliar with the original Siberian Shamanism but it was evidently clear that a lot of work had been put in. All in all it was a fantastic piece and you hit every theme you were aiming for on the head.

    All in all C.C.C is possibly my favourite Fate fanfic.

    Congratulations, You. I much enjoyed reading C.C.C., with it being one of my favorite entries for the year. The story of the inspirations behind the work is quite interesting, and I'm always pleased to see people doing research and proper worldbuilding for their stories, something that I feel is too often overlooked.

    May you roll something nice indeed!

    Congrats! C.C.C. was a fully realized ride, definitely something that truly felt woven together, yuk yuk. It was definitely the one to beat, so truly job well done to you.

    Also, it's a case of the planets aligning that Nuada is a shared name between the god and the family. Anything that helps foster those connections and build a heck of a story is a good detail in my book!

    Lately I've dealt with it by just quitting BL for the day/week

    It's well enough to take the moral high ground, but when it'll do no good and you know it'll do no good, it comes to seem like more of a show than a principled position.
    I think the answer is not spoon feeding, not insulting, not discussing, just post a link and leave.
    even if doesn't solve anything, at least you won't have any regrets.
    also it cuts the conversation until xyz reads it because no one is responding so no dogpiling.
    Basically creating a roadblock

    I guess, but You seems like a nice dude who I haven't really seen be mean to someone.

    I said it before, but yours was my favourite fic of the bunch, You. I wouldn't see it as a tragedy, though, for the simple reason that Araya is not only accepting of having degraded, but even seems satisfied with it.

    It was a risky and interesting piece.

    Write more, You.

    My first impression was that you needed a bit more room than a single scene to develop the ideas behind the fic fully. As you said, we had skipped to the aftermath of an unseen story and an ending where everything is laid out and reviewed. A restriction of the narrative device chosen, but then again I don't know if this sense of seeing only half the picture or the result and not the process could be tackled by expanding the scene itself or only through having an entire chaptered work - or snippets of it at least - before it. Or perhaps the ideas that went into this would lose their impact and clarity if they aren't condensed and presented in the manner that they were. As it was, it feels like an exposition of ideas and, perhaps not the best word but, plot points, but that's not necessarily bad, as evidenced by where the story ranked. There's a charm to such as-I-lay-dying-ish exposition confessions too, after all.
