    Summary

    The line is silent for a moment, as Yuuri stands there, fingers getting progressively colder as he hears Minako breathe in his ear, not really willing to hang up first.

    “The Grand Prix is just around the corner,” Minako says, her tone almost wistful.

    He breathes out slowly to steady himself. “It is.”

    “… Are you going to watch it?”

    Yuuri shouldn’t. He knows it’ll feel awful to watch everyone he knows trying their best at something he loves when he can’t anymore. But it’s Phichit’s first year in the Grand Prix, and Victor’s competing, so…

    “Of course,” he says, and is proud of how steady his voice comes out. He doesn’t know if it’s a lie or not.

    (Or: in which Yuuri's Stammi Vicino skate never gets posted and he retires, Victor keeps himself skating for better or for worse, Yuri struggles with his debut, and missed opportunities have a way of righting themselves.)

    Summary

    The Emiya men aren't big on communication, though he guesses somewhere out there, there's a Shirou proving him wrong by actually talking to his loved ones. Shirous are naive like that in the beginning.

    Summary

    "There’s a slight hesitation, as if his Master’s weighing the value of his name. (A wise choice, considering its power.) Then, he stares up at Lancer and says clearly 'I’m Emiya Shirou. You can call me Shirou, if you want.'

    'Shirou, huh…?' Lancer tastes the name on his tongue, suspecting he’s pronouncing it wrong, but then its bearer doesn’t seem to mind. 'Say, that name suits you.'"

    An alternate Fate route, with Lancer as Shirou's Servant.

    Summary

    "Sakura smiles and leans in to the touch—she still treats Aoi’s affection as an ephemeral thing.

    This causes Gilgamesh no end of gnawing vexation, whenever he sees it. It clashes with Aoi’s very existence as a warm-hearted, peaceable person. (And yet, Sakura’s 'adoption' is never far from his mind—both parents had to agree to it, after all.) He wonders if this is the price of being in a Mage family; you receive power at the expense of leaving the warmth of affection behind."

    The Fifth Holy Grail War begins far earlier than expected, putting the Tohsaka sisters and their summoned Kings to the test. Sequel to "A Forming Bond".

    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.
