I can't wait till Fate/Hollow Ataraxia has been totally translated. I like to read about Riders crush on Ayako and the other fun stuff in it. I really liked Ayako character in F/SN but sadly she was underutilized.

I hope F/HA is similar to Kagetsu Tohya, because Kagetsu Tohya was a lot of fun.

Didn't she drink Shirou's blood in Melty Blood? Aka she shouldn't be picky with blood... or the fact that most of the civilians ended up being female...

I think they're pretty similar, yeah.

Given that Melty Blood is Tsukihime, I doubt it....

Well, Shirou is a definite exception to Rider's lesbianism, although I'm not sure if he's the only exception.

Bad End 4: Melty Blood. v=RhrPeITkF28

While men are dissolved by Sakura, women are eaten by Zouken, sucked by Rider and drained by Caster. I'm sure Rider's not going to be picky with blood...

The confusion came from Melty Blood also being the name off the Tsukihime fighting game.

Yeah I know. I expected Rider to drink blood regardless of gender.... maybe I should ask Nasu if I ever see him.

Well, if she needs to live then I doubt she'll be picky, no. If she's just drinking it for fun she might be, however....

And, like I said, Shirou is definitely an exception to Rider's lesbian tendencies. She is very definitely interested in him sexually, although she won't go after him because she cares too much for Sakura.

It was.

Yeah, sadly he's an exception to the blood drinking.

Well to be fair is not like Shirou is that masculine in any case.

Isn't Hallow Ataraxia for fanservice? Or is there some seriousness in the game like in F/SN? I have the full game and completed patch.

From my understanding it is a fan-disk, but some of what happens in it is canon more or less, or at least it gives more insight in some characters and events.

There is a translation patch but only 96.8% of the game seems to have been translated and not everything has been proof read yet. The current estimation for when all of it will done is by Christmas.

Note, canon as canon gets in a series with multiple realities. FHA, from my understanding, is a fourth route rather than an extension of any of the previous three (though seems to take a lot from HF).

I think it's mostly fanservice, but the characterisation is canon and it does have some genuinely useful information, as well as a vaguely important plot.

Actually, it's a mix of all three routes that basically gives the happiest situation possible for the good guys. So, it doesn't so much follow HF as it is that it includes the elements of HF that are necessary for Rider, Sakura and Rin to be happy, which is quite a bit.

I also don't think the story itself is canon, but the characterisation, backstory etc definitely is.

Saber can walk/run through water like there was none (it seems).

Oh yeah, Saber and her Jesus like powers. Odd to say the least but it does make for some good scenes in FZ so is ok.

I think it has to do with the lady of the lake but I call bullshit on that one. If you want to run over the sea either you are Jesus or Posidon, there is no in between-

She didn't run over the pool's water, she ran right through it.

But if you are referring to FZ... yeah, I guess she can fly too. Or it's probably her speed (faster than the speed of sound).

Yeah, they even make a joke of it in Hollow Ataraxia. Shirou has to teach Saber to swim....

Why should Poseidon have the ability to grant the ability to walk on water but other water spirits (like the Lady of the Lake) don't...?

Saber can run over the water and even stand on top of it. That is Jesus… or Naruto now I think about it.

And the reason will be that Poseidon is a god, the god of the sea no less, not some lady in a lake. Think about it. Berserker is Hercules, right? And his that is Zeus, so if Hercules is real since he isn’t a fake spirit that means Zeus is real so his brother Poseidon should be real as well. And in my book gods win to spirits. The Servants don’t count because all of them are demigods at best and those never end well.

That doesn't mean there can't be more gods of the sea or other entities who can give someone the power to stand on water.

The Lady of the Lake gave her a blessing, I think there is even an entry of it under her skills in those F/Z stat screen pages.

Vivian was a Fae, a spirit of nature, so her giving a mortal that ability is not that farfetched. Lancelot has Fae blessings as well.
