Fragment 14 Insight (Revisited)

After a work trip and several weeks to think about an anon’s wakup call review, I’d started taking the series a bit more seriously. The first glimpses of planning ahead, interlacing stories, and so forth. The biggest take was the focus on a single… Continue Reading “Fragment 14 Insight (Revisited)”

Fragment 13 (Post-Upgrade) Insight

Ah, the original Fragment 13… There’s getting egg on your face, and then there’s pouring the entire carton down your backside. Of all the fragments I’ve ever written, this one was hands down the biggest mistake I’d ever committed too. I’m glad it was… Continue Reading “Fragment 13 (Post-Upgrade) Insight”

Fragment 12 Insight (Revisited)

It was a gamble back then, but it was one I was glad I took anyway. I remain very vigilant on what I do with my OCs and what role they play. First and foremost, they remain in supportive roles unless it’s their own… Continue Reading “Fragment 12 Insight (Revisited)”

Fragment 11 Insight (Revisited)

I didn’t have very man overall plans for the series back in 2016, but if there was one I always had, it was this: Both Gudao and Gudako would be masters. Most would pick one or the other. I thought multiple would be a… Continue Reading “Fragment 11 Insight (Revisited)”

Fragment 10 Insight (Revisited)

This was the first fragment to directly follow another in terms of themes, design, or subplot/arc. Whereas most early fragments were revised or tweaked to include more interlacing, this one remained roughly the same in that regard. Season 1 can be seen as laying… Continue Reading “Fragment 10 Insight (Revisited)”

Fragment 9 Insight (Revisited)

Back when I first wrote this fragment, it would become my first answer to ‘duplicate’ servants. It was my intention to limit the number of similar servants to one and only one back when the series was still very casual. Obviously years later, that… Continue Reading “Fragment 9 Insight (Revisited)”

Fragment 101 Insight

Vlad had a rather weird predicament with his fragment. There wasn’t really a distinctive moment in his development compared to most other servants I’ve shown, so his entry wound up feeling pretty mellow and ordinary. It’s far from out of place in a Slice… Continue Reading “Fragment 101 Insight”

Fragment 100 Insight

Usually servants trickled in one or two at a time for most past-year fragments. It hasn’t actually been since Season 2 that multiple servants arriving was a common scene. Fragment 100 fixed that, but for obvious reasons if you read the cancelled supplement. Five… Continue Reading “Fragment 100 Insight”

Fragment 99 Insight

Many of you are probably expecting Fragment 100 to be the special one, but honestly, Fragment 99 would technically be the big 1-0-0 since the prologue counts. That said, both were planned to be pretty nice with their own twists, but 99 gets the… Continue Reading “Fragment 99 Insight”

Fragment 98 Insight

Remember the teaser for Penthesilea’s entry? I spun it a little uniquely to incorporate the general concept of her fragment. It’s also a conclusive pointer towards what I did to ‘tweak/adapt’ her noble phantasm’s Ex rank in a curious way. Obviously stated, it’s about… Continue Reading “Fragment 98 Insight”
