Have fun! Though remember... it's only a hobby. I always tell people that and I'm never sure if they listen or not...

I listen, but that's part of the problem of having a hobby; you like to do it, and then you feel bad when for whatever reason, you have trouble doing it.

This is part of why I finish fics before I start posting them. That way, if I break down and take six months to get through Chapter 6, no one ever has to know...

(This analysis immediately falls apart, however, when I think up story ideas that come in series... Curse you, "You Know My Methods, Natsuki"!)

Be like me and don't care about your readers happiness! In fact, enjoy their sorrow! Drink their tears like fine wine.

That's always worked out well in the past.

Well I got to include elements from both series for a crossover, right?

That was based from Assassin's Creed 2, where

Pretty cool, but I have to admit it takes the fun out of seeing Shirou so helpless but determined in canon until his powers kick into gear. Still, pretty cool start.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. An interesting starting point, and I saw no glaring flaws; the occasional wording I would have done differently things like that, but nothing really important. I worry that I don't know enough Assassin's Creed to fully appreciate it, but this was a perfectly good set-up for whatever eventual plot you're planning to run with. Looking forward to more!

Another tidbit from the vast well of useless stories known as my brain. Though I already posted this in FF.net

Hi, I'm 2ndsly. Very first post I've made on this site.

This sounds so /off/ .

*shrugs*

Heroslayer, interesting chapter, I would actually be interested in seeing more from this. I loved the Fate Kalled Liner Prismatic Illia, but Shiro is only barely a background character. Would be nice to see it done from this perspective. But I'm not really sure if this is enough of a divergence to remain interesting. It could be done well, but only if you treat it carefully. Oh well, it's your dismally anyway.

Sorry for the double post, but when I tried to explain why I signed up over here when I mostly run around FF.net reading anything interesting , I choked. So I just gave a review instead. With the 1st post issue out of the way, on to the reason I'm here.

I love the F/S N series, and Shirou Emiya has become one of my favorite character of all time. Right up there with Harry Dresden and Honor Harringtion. But my intro to F/S N was somewhat flawed. I could go into a long amusing story on my intro to F/S N that makes fans of the game cringe every time I tell it, but it really is a very simple concept explained with one word: Crossover. Slightly more detail: Massivly Multi-Cross.

So needless to say, my knowledge of Cannon is somewhat .... questionable.

In the end it's like this, I /really/ want to write a fic for this, but I could very well scramble cannon all to *bleep*. So I sat and I thought, and I thought as I sat;and I gathered several possible ideas that could let me work around my lack of cannon. But none were quite good enough.

So resigned to my fate, I went back to TVtroops and played. I read this most interesting fact.

Once upon a time, Rin and Shiro were to be the same character, with Saber male and all sorts of other things. I then realized I had my answer, until I can fix my knowledge of cambium can just play around in this world where mornings quite like it should be anyway. Then I dug up on of my ideas from before and combined them.

The current title I'm giving it is Level Up.

Thoughts and opinions?

Two words don't fit.
hhmmmm
cambium = cannon
mornings = nothing's

Spell check messed it up and my wireless divise wouldn't let me edit it out.

My apologies.

Perhaps another excellent chapter of Chaos Theory would help inspire me?

If your afraid of mucking with canon, perhaps consulting the wiki would help.

PS: Instead of double-posting just after a few minute, you might want to use the edit post button instead...

I tried, but the device I'm surfing on wouldn't let me scroll down to where the mistakes were.

Ha!!!
it worked this time. Smaller post, no scrolling required.

Im using just about every source I can think of for answers, but unless I play the game I will never really be able to fit it together.

Pretty sure there are torrents you can access to play the game, though whether or not you can get it running after that all depends on what programs you have.

Tiresias, I'm sorry. I don't know how I missed the first part of your fic earlier. I like the concept, but I think the beginning could use a better hook.

There's not really anything overtly wrong with it, but it opens up with a several OCs and few known chars at first. After rereading it I wonder if flushing it out would help. You opening the story with a Research Lab (Bad Type), shouldn't there be all sorts of interesting things to describe littering it?

*shrugs*

I hope that was of some help.

RadiantBeam,

wouldn't that make you some type of vampire?
Possibly White Court? (Dresden Files reference)




PS I'm actually a fan of yours , going on 2 years or so now. I found you right alongside typewriterman at FF.net.

Hmm? The only named OC was Clarke, and he got outed pretty early; Vidic was from Assassin's Creed(and since this is a crossover, there will be others). Don't worry, I'm planning to minimize the use of OC's, limiting them for victims or bystanders

Hmm, I'll see if my muse can work that out...
