There are Four scenarios I've come up for a "want of a Nail" SAO Fanfic ideas, where Kirito makes different choices throughout the Aincrad arc.

Well, no matter what, Furinkazan would find themselves on the frontlines - it's noted that they're part of the Clearing Group, the loose association of guilds and solo players dedicated to clearing the game. And they got there without Kirito.

It's also noteworthy that Funrinkazan have taken zero casualties, despite fighting on the front lines, something even KoB can't boast about.

Klein DID loose a friend hence why he went after the Resurrection Stone.

This is completely true. If there was a Peggy Sue fic where Kirito finds himself back in Aincrad again, I'd say that he'd definitely take up Klein's offer this time.

Which is why I think a Want for a Nail fic where Kirito joins Furinkazan may be very interesting, because of the HUGE amount of butterflies - I think 10 chapters can be pumped out even before Aria. For better? Or for worse? I guess it depends on the author, but I'd dare say that Kirito would have likely ran into Asuna, since it was implied that Asuna was camping for quite a few days on the first floor labyrinth. Certainly, Furinkazan wouldn't affect his final level overall, nor his chances of survival early on.
Spoiler for Spoiler for First Day and RNR:


Did Furinkazan acquired any new members in Aincrad?

Indeed, I really wonder:

Asuna and Kirito were both hanging around the final dungeon in the canon telling too and only just ran into her once before she would have likely died without his intervention, so I don't think it's all that much of given that she would have always run into him before then.

His level by the time they faced the First Floor Boss certainly would have.

Judging by the photo of his and his friends by the first episode I'd have to say almost none.

I don't think they'd be clearer level members Klein would have enough sense to see that as not such a good idea.

This is true. I also noticed that Furinkanzen was absent from the First Floor Boss, but at the same time, it's not like Kirito soloed the First Floor Boss.

By the time we get to December 2023, I suspect Kirito's level would either be on par, or even slightly higher.

At the same time, a certain degree of Leeway might be given for the Asuna issue too.
Spoiler for Aincrad Arc, Just In Case:
So yes, it's no guarantee, but there might be a good chance that Kirito runs into Asuna either a few hours earlier, or slightly later.

Perhaps because of Guild Cohesiveness?

Are you sure? The way I read things, Klein wasn't after the Resurrection Stone, he was trying to keep Kirito from dying alone, hence why he showed up and vegged for Kirito to team up with them. It's only after things don't work out that Kirito gives him the stone.

As for Sachi and Scilica... Furinkazan wouldn't be keen on inouto on the frontlines. Asuna gets a pass because she's not an imouto ;p

"Indeed, there might not even be a one percent chance of it. But whether it's the probability of my finding the Christmas Boss, of defeating it alone, of the Resurrection item existing, or of the dead's consciousnesses having been preserved...all of these like finding a grain of sand in a desert. However...however, it is not zero. Since it's not zero, I have to put in my best effort. Moreover...Klein, there's no way you would give yourself this headache just for the money, right? So, you will use it as a reason to do this just like me, right?"

In response to my question, Klein snorted, answering while holding the sheath on the floor:

"I'm not the same as a dreamer like you. It's just that...before, I also had a friend who was eliminated. If I don't do everything that I can for him, then I won't be able to sleep at night..."

Facing the Klein who had stood up, I gave a slight smile.

"So it's the same."

"It's not the same. Our main objective is still the treasure, with what we just talked about on the side......with only that group of people, it would be bad if a giant ant comes out. I'll go and check out the situation."
I mean it's possible he was just straight up lying in order to be able protect Kirito but I didn't get that.

After watching a bunch of videos and Let's Play of Magicka, a rather interesting game where people tend to kill each other accidentally in Co-op mod, I was wondering how it would be like if a 3D VR Version of Magicka (or a sequel of that game) was released.
Spoiler for Post-Aincrad:


Just look at this video, for example:


Yet another plot bunny- seriously, VR Variants of modern games are a fertile source of plot bunnies for the SAO Universe.

Hmmm... you've got a point there. On the other hand, volume 1 states that Furinkazan's survived with no casualties... argh, goddamnit author, get your head straight!

Jim Butcher, writer of the Codex Alera and Dresden Files series, has stated that he uses the Dresden Files wiki to keep his head straight on what is and isn't canon, as being the author everything kinda runs together after a while and he can't remember what actually got written and what got shelved. Ditto for the writing team of Stargate SG-1

Oh god, I can just see it now: AmuSphere version of Day Z.

Portal VII Released for AmuSphere in 2025. 20 million copies sold on the opening day.

Magicka IV Released for AmuSphere in 2026. 17.2 million Copies sold on the Opening Day.

The Elder Scrolls XII released for AmuSphere later in 2026. 18.3 million copies sold, until reviews scathingly damned the game for it's obsolete UI and lack of anything new.

Another Call of Duty game released for AmuSphere in 2024. Tanked because it can't beat GGO.

Sim City VIII released for AmuSphere in 2027. Unlike it's Nervegear disaster, this game is highly lauded.



But seriously, a future Magicka game where Kirito and his friends play might be a very fun one shot involving blowing each other up in creative ways.

Here first on the on AnimeSuki forums: SPARTAN 119's SAO Fanfic:

Sword Art Online: From the Outside

I mentioned this in the general discussion before this board came out. This is basically the story of what happens in the real world while the events of SAO play out. Including news broadcasts on the latest developments in the Sword Art Online crisis as well as accounts of police specialists including a computer expert and a bomb disposal officer both tasked with finding ways to disarm a confiscated Nerve Gear Unit (i.e. taken off the store shelves before the device was sold), the computer expert trying to hack into software and the EOD expert trying disarm it physically without triggering the microwave, as well as various officers involved in raids on various places Akihiko is suspected to be hiding. May contain some AU later.


Anyway, without further ado, the first chapter of Sword Art Online: From the Outside:

More Sachi, a draft from Sword Art Online: From the Outside. This scene features Shinichiro Matsuoka, a former university student turned vigilante, and the older brother of Sachiko "Sachi" Matsuoka.

Spoiler for Fic Draft:


Constructive criticism only please.


Also, opinions on Shinichiro's weapon, In the initial draft above, I have him purchase a hunting rifle (contrary to popular belief, you can purchase a hunting rifle or shotgun in Japan, at least according to Wikipedia).

I figured him using a katana or something would be to cliche.

So, anyway, I was also think perhaps him either purchasing from an illegal arms dealer, perhaps making some comment about suddenly there being significant illegal arms sales in Japan, all for the same reason: "Kill Kayaba Akihiko".

Or, alternatively, according to an interview with the creator Highschool of the Dead, he owns a crossbow, noting that there are no crossbow restrictions in Japan.

Also, I was thinking of having him purchase several knives and hatchet, as well as make some pipe bombs with online instructions, and perhaps having him as something of a computer geek like his sister, and manage to hack into police and Argus corporation databases in search of Akihiko.

Opinions on which option I should choose for the weapon?

It wasn't written by the author, but by the fans. It's non-canon, and hasn't been, and probably won't be translated.
