    Summary

    "I don't understand," Hephaistion says, eyes red and unfocused.

    Alexander, with an arm around Hephaistion's waist, hums. Roxanne sits on Alexander's left, drunk, with half her weight pressed against him. She scoffs at Hephaistion, though she doesn't even know what he said.

    Summary

    That is, until Cleitus barked a laugh and sent his fist flying into Hephaistion’s face, sending his chocolate curls flying backwards. Cassander let loose a dark laugh that sent chills down his spine as he lurched up from his seat, ignoring the confused looks and calls that abandoning his seat earned him...

    “What do you think you are doing?” Alexander demanded before the gods and mortals alike, watching as sobriety seemed to perk up behind Cleitus’ black eyes and Cassander’s widening in shock and dislike, his mouth curling like a snake.

    Summary

    "Rider clears his throat and holds out his hand. 'Normally, this is where we introduce ourselves, right? So: I am Iskandar, King of Conquerors, summoned in the Rider class for the Holy Grail War. Either Iskandar or Rider will do, if you wish to be formal. And you are…?'

    The man slowly exhales, and looks a little calmer. 'I am Kayneth El-Melloi Archibald, Professor of Spiritual Evocation at the Clock Tower and chosen Master for the Holy Grail War. Call me Lord Archibald, as is proper.'

    Rider continues to hold out his hand. Kayneth doesn’t take the hint.

    There is another awkward pause. Finally Rider drops his hand to his side, and tries another tack.

    '…Wouldn’t ‘Professor Archibald’ make more sense?'

    'Were you listening, you—'

    A disappointed, ladylike sigh drops like a stone into the conversation. 'Kayneth, didn’t you hear? This is a King, not an unruly student. Does it matter what Rider calls you, so long as you work together?'"

    Rider is summoned by Kayneth, and finds himself in a most difficult and complicated partnership.

    Summary

    He would merely be known as Alexander's Persian boy, his catamite and Alexander would never yearn to be with him in the afterlife as he did Hephaistion. He had often heard them talk about these things when they thought they were alone, how they would follow one another into death when the time came. History had a habit of repeating its blood-soaked romances. That was one truth he knew well.

    Summary

    “This will be good for you,” says Roxana. “And have no fear, Calanus did not foresee your death.” Judging by the clinking noise, Thais just poured her one last cup of wine.

    Wine bought with Waver’s very thin wallet. Didn’t they have alcohol to spare in…wherever they lived in Rider’s head?

    Thais speaks up, her tone nearly giddy. “Conquering yourself is the first step to conquering the world. Wouldn’t you agree, Iskandar?”

    “Indeed!” booms Rider, making Waver’s heart jolt. “Enough dawdling—your education begins now, boy!”

    Waver has never wanted to learn anything less. And yet a traitorous part of him makes him look down at the reins, then to the blue sky up ahead, and think All right, here we go then.

    A couple of less known situations that allegedly took place during Alexander's reign. Mostly historic accurate, sometimes jazzed up by my imagination.

    Summary

    There is a secret Rider has, and that is that he can access his ultimate Noble Phantasm without manifesting it into the world around him. Such is the beauty of a reality marble. Waver takes no notice when Alexander sits down and withdraws into himself - he is already fast asleep, having crawled into bed and cast a spell for dreamless sleep moments after they returned from Caster’s workshop.

    Within moments of stepping into his camp, Rider is overwhelmed by familiar faces rushing to him, and he greets them all in turn. To five messengers, he asks that his best generals, bodyguards, second self, wife and friends be gathered for a symposium in his own tent, and they all disappear without asking for specific names. The king’s confidants do not need to be named, only gathered.

    Summary

    If you accept that the soldier with long black hair in Rider's reality marble is indeed Waver, you must also accept that Waver Velvet has fought in the Fourth Holy Grail War twice, from two distinct vantage points, one with full knowledge of how the war must play out.
