Fate/Instinct: Memoire Spectrale-Prologue
'Smoke... Smoke... Why do I smell smoke...?'
These thoughts crossed a young man's mind. As he regained his consciousness, the young boy, barely in to a decade of life, began to sense other sensations.
The feeling of heat, the sound of crackling flames...
That could only mean...
The young man shot awake, realizing that smoke filled his small room. He leapt out of his bed, running to the door of his room. He grabbed for the handle, which sizzled as his flesh was burned. He retracted his hand as fast as his body would allow, adrenaline kicking in as he racked his brain for a solution. Without a second thought, he went with the first idea that came to mind: Knocking over the door.
Once with his shoulder, then twice, and finally with a stiff kick. The door, weakened somehow, crashed open, revealing the burning hellscape unfolding before his eyes.
'The Father!'
He turned to the direction where the Church Father's office and living quarters would be, only having just enough time

Fate/Instinct: Memoire Spectrale
Yes, I went back to the drawing board for Fate/Instinct. It occurred to me that there were just so many characters and side characters that the cast felt bloated and bogged down. 14 characters alone just with the Masters, plus another 14 on top of that. Then there were the plots, subplots, character development requirements, lore... Some writers are able to pull off a roster and world that size (looking at G.R.R. Martin when I say that), but I am not one of them, at least not yet. Relax, though, as some of the coolest scenes I thought of (and there are some) are going to be posted separately, assuming I can't find a place for them in this new Fate story.
But, enough of that noise, let's get to what y'all really came for: Which over-the-top historical personalities will we be having each-other fight this time?

Fire Emblem: The Radiant Kingdom
So, I don't think I need to explain this to anybody at this point, but I'm going to anyway.
I love Tabletop RPGs.
I love the idea of making a character uniquely your own and playing with virtually unlimited freedom. Wanna use a ballistae shot as a bat? You can. Wanna force a drunk worker to shit all over a table to get a store closed down? You can. And boy do I have a story on that one.
Point being, tabletop gives you a lot of freedom. And it lends itself very well to my very favorite series of games. No, not Dynasty Warriors, though I can see why you'd think that.
But the game series I truly love more than any other?
Oh, fuck yes.
As much as I love Warriors, there's just a certain allure to Fire Emblem I can never escape. And I remember it all. I remember setting out in a quest for revenge and justice as Marth in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon. I remember bashing in Ashanard's head in Path of Radiance. And of course I remember bringing down Grima in Fire Emblem: Awakening.
Point being, Fi

Lyn: That's it! We've analyzed strengths, weaknesses, and taken audience opinions in to account! Let's get this fight underway!
Xander: DEATH BATTLE time!
Within the Temen-ni-gru

Byakuya Kuchiki walked through the mysterious halls of the tower known as the Temen-ni-gru. Just the day before, he had been tasked to eliminate the owner of a bizarre spiritual power who had been tampering with powers he shouldn't have been.
Hollow-like beings in all shapes and sizes continued to attack Byakuya as he ascended the tower; Some died in a burst of blood, others were humanoids that turned to dust when defeated... Most single Shinigami would be fatigued after the kind of assaults he had repulsed, but not Byakuya. He had made it close to the top and he wasn't even winded.
They were simply too slow.
After a long climb, Byakuya managed to reach the top of the tower

The Shatterdome
The alarm blared. Everyone in the facility could hear it. The gruff Hercules Hansen was woken from sleep by his son, Chuck.
"Come on, old man, get up!" Chuck pressured like an impatient child. Which, of course, in many ways, he was.
"I'm up, dammit," Hercules growled, "I'm up!"
"We're getting ready to deploy," Chuck informed his father and co-pilot, "Suit up and don't waste time!"
"What kind of kaiju we lookin' at, eh?"
"No idea," Chuck laughed back.
"Come on, kid, don't fuck with me..."
"No, I'm serious," Chuck replied. This time, it was clear he was serious if a bit too excited. "Come on, then, suit up!"

Inland Jungle, South America


The deepest jungles of South America... The sounds and scents and sights would be enough to cause many to gaze in amazement.
Such was not the case for one, dark-skinned man, his red hair in a topknot and wearing a dark purple martial arts gi.
Cupping his hands together, he forcefully thrust them forward, a violet ball of fire disrupting the flow of the waterfall he had been standing in front of. Momentarily, the flow of water ceased, not a bead of sweat or indication of panting apparent on the martial arts master apparent.
"So," came a voice from nearby, "You're the one known as Akuma that I've heard so much

Fic Pitch: Fate/Instinct Masters
So, with Servants announced, time to talk Masters.


The would-be head of the Beauregard clan, he's thrown his lot in with Clan Yggdmillennia, earning him ire from half of the clan he ostensibly leads. This half has chosen to support his twin brother, Baptiste. Because the Beauregard Crest allows two to hold it in the event of a personally weak clan head, Baptiste has the Crest as well, strengthening his claim. His Servant is Cao Cao, the Duke of Wei who fought to unite a people oppressed by the corrupted Blue Heaven of Han.




The enigmatic wife of Matthew Yggdmillennia, she and her husband were found by Darnic early in the days of the 2nd World War. A person with massive amounts of mana in her body but unable t

Fic Pitch: Fate/Instinct
30 years have passed since the last Grail War. A winner was unclear. A mad homunculus drove the world to war. Two clans were left without heads. Descending in to a struggle to take advantage of the power vacuum, these clans inadvertently damaged each-other to the point of near-oblivion.
One has fallen, absorbed by another clan.
The other fights for its very survival, its only savior being an alliance with other clans.
And now the Grail War begins anew, though now the world of normal men also threatens to enter the world of the Mages again.
The Grail War is about to begin.

Yeah, it's been done before but I tried thinking of other options. Vietnam, Spanish Civil War, I even thought about going all the way to Desert Storm, but that particular instance would've been long after the politics created by the Fate/TRIGGER Grail War had been resolved, at least mostly.
For now, though, we talk Servants, since I know that's what you're here for!

I should warn you that that's generally seen as bad form in DB.
