>Saber knew all too well how his Master felt about Berserker's actions, but he couldn't blame her
>he felt much the same way, that allowing a Servant to run amok like this was a cowardly and weak action on the part of Berserker's Master, whoever they were
>so he had no qualms with agreeing with Annette

Unfortunately, I did not get the chance to see his Noble Phantasm in action. Whatever it was, it allowed him to escape Lancer's attack.

So you are correct, attacking him directly would be a poor decision.

>much to his distaste, but he had to think properly here and not let his pride get in the way


Perhaps we could set a trap of some sort? Lure him out into the open?

If he is feeding on people, then it is possible he is low on mana. In that case, all we would have to do is outlast him, and he could perish on his own.

My, my... aren't we bold~?
>she grinned a wide, crocodile-like grin at she looked at Annette and Saber
>it was only now that Annette could really sense her foe, the enemy Magi having somehow remained undetected until just now
Not only do you walk around with your Servant on full display, but you plan on chasing after something as dangerous as a Berserker?

Your height betrays your courage, little girl! I think I might just learn to like you~!

>she lets out a low chuckle, her hand sliding underneath her jacket

But I'm afraid you're both too late...
>and she quickly removes something from beneath, casually tossing it in Annette and Saber's direction
>it dropped limply onto the floor, allowing them to get a good sight of the object: a plastic bag, and inside of it, a severed human hand with the very visible marks of the Command Seals

That's what I was thinking too yeah, though whatever trap we come up with would have to account for what strength Berserker has to spare...

"Mediator"...?

HAH!
>she quickly scoffed
Do you think that somehow frightens me, boy~?

For all I care, every single one of you could launch an attack towards me at the same time, and it would make no difference...~

>that shark-toothed grin appeared again, Natasha remaining every bit as confident and cool-headed as she stared down the Servant

>she snapped her feet together, standing at attention as she introduced herself
My name is Natasha Trifonova!

My mission is for that name to mean something to everybody!

And nothing will stand in my way!

>her posture relaxed, but she kept her grin

This mediator, you see... he didn't even deem me "worthy" of being a part in this War...

So I simply forced my way into it!~
>she motioned at the rotting hand inside the bag on the floor
Taking out one of the key players, and quickly filling his spot with myself... and my own Servant, of course~

A Servant the likes this world has NEVER seen before!
>she quickly threw her fist in the air, her voice growing louder and more bombastic
You will ALL tremble and break before our might!

Today is your last day fighting, for you stand against the UNBEATABLE Master and Servant!

BEHOLD YOUR IMMINENT DEMISE!

A necrophiliac partnered up with a lazy pickpocket? You two took out Berseker? Yeah I'm calling bull on that!

Oh~? So you're trying to call my bluff, are you?

Whether you choose to believe me or not, you still find yourself at quite the disadvantage girl!
>she held out her arm, the street they were on not being very populated but still entirely open to the possibility of someone walking by
Your Servant doesn't strike me as a very subtle sort, so starting a fight out in the open like this can't possibly be a good idea now can it? Especially with how concerned your Servant sounded about it...
>she chuckled quietly, stepping back and slightly behind her Servant
Lucky for me, Avenger doesn't need to think about such paltry concerns... because she can kill any Servant without lifting a finger~
>she raised her hand, snapping her fingers at her Servant
Now, Avenger! Show them your terrifying power!

>>41542382
>Only nothing came.. at first. Only a feeling that something should be wrong. That fact that something felt wrong at all meant she reacted on gut instinct.

AQUA BUBBLE!!

>Annette had no way of knowing what was sailing down towards her head, but training had been beaten into her over and again that just because you can't see what's trying to kill you doesn't mean it's not there.


>The moment Avenger had completed her action threw up a sphere of water around her, the same wet ball that she had used to escape the train that night not too long into the past. It was a total gamble, it could have been a trick to make her slip up, a trap to make her expose herself as a mage to the peopl--


>WAP!!

>Annette jolted as she looked upwards, coming face to screen with a widescreen television that was a hair's breath touching her nose as pressed down on her jelly-like shield. A pang of terror creeping into her spine from just how close she was to dying in that instant.
>BA-BOOOOOOOING~!!
>The bubble launches the TV back into the air as it springs back into shape and bursts immediately afterward.
>She didn't have time to be frightened though, she had to fight for her life now.

<"Saber alley to our left! We'll take this to the backstreets!"


>They couldn't fight in the open like this, not after this instant, they'll be seen. It wasn't advantageous to force themselves into a confined space but Annette had little choice otherwise.


>She did want to return the favor to Natasha, so she brings her arm back as the TV starts to return to earth...


FORCE!!

>Lashing out with the scroll like a whip, the tip strikes the tv. With a loud CRACK of a whip, the TV shoots forward like a cannonball hurtling towards Natasha.

>Annette didn't wait to see the results, she figured that this battle wouldn't be as easy as that, so she ran away. Flipping the other mage off as she dashed into the alley.

You are FAR from your HEALTHIEST, O Master, and too MUCH stress cannot do you MUCH good!

From what I understand, the only mortals who still use that phrase are idiots looking to justify whatever equally idiotic and nearly-suicidal actions pop into their minds.

>clearly Fueki was deadset on being a sourpuss

>he started to walk away, heading back towards his work room, even while he continued to chastise Rider

And correct me if I'm wrong, as my knowledge on Egypt is still somewhat limited...

But don't you come from a society that believes the opposite of that?

What ARE you working ON after all, Master?

You have BEEN here for quite some TIME already.

Though we came out on the better end of that encounter with Hanzo, they still learned something about you that they can use.

If you are not under direct sunlight, you are not at your full power. If we had not brought the light in, you likely would have lost that fight.

I have no desire to bow out of this contest so easily. So I must prepare in the event that you do lose.

Although I myself HAVE no intention of LOSING, I suppose I CANNOT blame you for WANTING a back-up plan...

May I be PRIVY to it? Or would that HINDER this plot of yours?

My plan is not to replace you.

I don't think I could manage to summon a new Servant that easily, given what it took to bring you about...

>he held up the crystal for a moment, tilting it from side to side, judging its size


No, for this to work I cannot allow your spirit to return to the other side.

So...

>he then placed the crystal on the table and resumed his work


I intend to use this as a means for you to remain on this plane even if you are defeated.

By using my body as your vessel.

And how is THAT a boon to US?

I do not think the SIGHT of a broken down OLD MAN will instill MUCH fear into the hearts of our enemies, and there IS only so much the POWER of His Gift can do.

It would be enough to keep us in the fight.

>Fueki didn't seem phased by Rider's answer, only continuing to pick away at the crystal he was holding onto


As I said, this is a method of last resort. I don't plan on using it unless I have to.

Frankly, I'm not entirely sure on what exactly will happen. Only that you won't die and we will both have a second chance.

What that does to me and my body...

>he actually gave a small shrug at that, seemingly deeming it not important


We won't know until the moment comes.

You DO manage to amaze me SOMETIMES, O Master.

Very well! if this IS your wish, then what shall come SHALL come.

As your Chariot, I have VOWED to carry you to the end of THIS War, and I intend to UPHOLD that vow.

So I'm fairly CERTAIN this trinket of YOURS will not be necessary anyway.

Well, as long as you are confident about it...

You must have an idea of what our next move is.

Do we continue to pursue Assassin?

Or do we try our luck with one of the other Servants?

UNIMPRESSIVE as the Assassin's current form MAY be, it would be UNWISE to make a judgment BASED on that alone.

She can HIDE her true presence from me, and we cannot RELY on the presence of HER Master to indicate their next attack.

It was LUCK that brought us and the Assassin TOGETHER, and I do not believe we'll HAVE that same luck again now that they are AWARE of our existence...


>he paused, tapping a finger over his arms as her crossed them

...

I believe trying to FIND the Assassin would be a waste of time. They shall APPEAR to us sooner or LATER.

Focusing our efforts in the REST of those involved in this War should REMAIN our priority.

As long we STAND beneath His Gift, there IS no Servant that can stand BEFORE me. We keep our ACTIONS in the day, while our enemies stalk the NIGHT.

They will NOT expect us to take that initiative.

That just leaves the question of which one we try and find.

Those murders that seemed to be the work of Berserker have quieted down...the trail has gone cold there...

I believe I may KNOW a way to aid us in OUR quest!

After all, WOULD it not be fair to assume that NOT all Masters partaking in this WAR have been born and RAISED in this city?


>he stepped back towards the door, crossing his arms again as he continued to explain

Perhaps there is SOME way of finding any new ARRIVALS to this place.

Those who do NOT belong would have a HIGH chance of being those WE seek!

>Fueki folded his arms and gave a grumble under his breath, trying to think of how best to accomplish that

...so we'd have to ask around at airports and whatnot about any new arrivals.

Or just ask around local stores for any foreigners coming in.

Or just try and look around for foreigners ourselves.

>put like that, it sounded like a ridiculously difficult task

>but he did give Rider a somewhat crooked smile

Then again, this is Japan...

That may not be as hard to do as it sounds.
