How would you fix the Fate Route, /a/?

What would you do to make Shirou and Saber's romance as good as Rin and Sakura's?

Saber Thread I guess
>>

>How would you fix the Fate Route, /a/?
By erasing it. Make it look like the game has only two routes. Saber route is ass.
>>
They don't fuck.
>>
>>116715870
Shirou tells Saber that her dream is stupid, Saber tells Shirou that his dream is also stupid. They act like rational human beings and agree that their lover is actually right, and just abandon them. They then fight the grail war without those shitty emotional baggages. They then fug and Saber bears Shirou his half-breed mongrel children.

There, greatest love story ever told.
>>
The romance wasn't the problem with the route, it's just a pointless route.

All FSN needed was Unlimited Blade Works (ideals) and Heaven's Feel (truths).
>>
>>116715870
I guess I'm one of the weird ones in thinking that it was fine as it is
sure, it's not as good as UBW and HF, but it's not a trainwreck either
>>
Well for starters, remove all Shirous hangups about Saber protecting him. That shit was grating.

Maybe make him less worthless in combat, instead of turning him into mini Archer, he could just stick to projecting Caliburn and Avalon.

As for the actual Romance? I don't know, that one always felt awkward to me, I thought she worked better as his big sister, then a girlfriend.
>>
>>116716465
Even just huge bros would have been enough.

None of the romance was good. I would either eliminate that shit altogether and make it very minor in import.
>>
>>116716465
To add to this, if they still needed a proper romance and sex scenes or w/e, they could have had Saber be Shirous wingman and play match maker with him and Ayako.

Would give Ayako somewhat of a route, with out forcing her into the Grail War.
>>
>retarded Japanese teenager with micro dick have sex with King Arthur

This shit is retarded. Cut this shit out, in fact cut the Fate route as a whole. Fate a shit.
>>
If Saber was still Male King Arthur, would he and Shirou pretty much be like Waver and Rider with how they'd be bros?
>>
The only good parts about Fate were the Rider scenes. They should be merged into the UBW adaption.
>>
>>116716465
I would also like to add that they should have a feeling of "camaraderie" between them, and then move from that to being a couple. Shirou and Saber acted more like comrades in UBW than in Fate, where they're arguing for most of the route until close to the end.

Also, change the conversation a bit/lot between Shirou and Saber about Shirou wanting Saber to stop/drop her ideals. It may be the correct choice; but the choice doesn't mean much if the one who says it (Shirou) has a similar ideal like hers, but is not dropping his.
>>
>>116716741
>Waver and Rider
>bros
>implying they weren't fucking
>>
>>116716282
So Saber or Shirou would wish for her to live in the present? What about the Grail being fucked up?
>>
>>116716751
>Rider
>UBW

Yeah, that ain't happening. Her death is the reason Gilgamesh even becomes relevant in the route.

By not having a legendary king that carried the weight of the world on her shoulders for decades blow a teenager with brain problems.

>>116715870
Saber x Shirou is so unrealistic that nobody can fix it.

The Fate route should not even exist
>>
>>116717345
She's also a teenager, anon. Her age was frozen. And even though it SHOULD have been decades according to the dates on the battles she fought it wasn't.
>>
>>116718444
>Saber x Shirou is so unrealistic
In other words...a love story
>>
>>116715870
Some romance moments were fine
Like when Gil comes and beats the shit out of Shirou
Maybe less of Saber being stubborn about her ideals.
>>
>>116715870
More some details here and there. Have Shirou not fuss so much about Saber being a girl and have Saber not develop into a love struck girl just after they've had sex.
I don't mind the romance as a whole, but it could had been played more as a friendship which would have Shioru get more thrown of guard by by the fact that he loves her more.

Fate is mostly exposition route anyway so it's needed mostly to explain the basics so that they can develop other things later.
I thought that the fact that Saber and Shirou are separated at the end redeemed their romance in my eyes somewhat that last day of

Fate was great but the build up could certainly have been better.
>>
>>116718481
She is only a teenager biologically. Chronologically she is a woman in her thirties.
>>
>>116718519
Are you saying that any kind of love is unrealistic by default and that there is no difference whatsoever between different love stories?
Would Saber loving my cock be just as likely as Saber loving Shrou since there's no difference anyway?

>>116719644

You don't fix the route.

>>116716741

Rider and Waver were practising Greek idea of dating, which involved men in that kind of relationship.

Remove all the UR A GIRL bullshit. That ruined it. More brothers on arms moments like in UBW and HF. No forced sex scenes.

The last day was fine (and the ending was perfect), that was supposed to be the dynamic between them.

If Ufotable adapted the Fate route, would they change things or just keep everything the same?

The changes have been solid.

The series is more confident in its execution for them, so far at least. We also get significantly more Kiritsugu flashbacks, which is a treat in itself.
>>
By making saber realize what's her fault and she would have great resolve and going saber lily, but she would still want to change the past. With great determination even if it cost the lives of innocent she would find her way to the grail.
Because Nasu like Gen's Idea of Saber Lily is also a villain
And then shirou oppose saber, but their promise to end this war together and his seigi no mikata make shirou don't dare to make saber kill herself. Then story goes on and saber back being the good guy and make promise with shirou that if she ever try to be the bad guy again, please instruct her to kill herself.
For the ending, after knowing Illya is the grail, her desire to change the past take control of her and shirou will fight her. And just one more step to kill Illya, shirou instruct saber to stop, then a command seal is disappeared but saber didn't flinch. And then in great despair shirou instruct saber to kill herself.
"sorry sorry sorry sorry sorry". And then saber says "Thank you, Shirou. You protect our promise"
"No saber, I . . ."
"Thank you for keeping our promise, Shirou"
In tears he says "Seiba . . . I . . . why you gave me this task, why you promise me something like this"
"Because I love you, and I trust you"
*Seibah coughing blood and disappearing*
"Seiba!"
"I know you could do it."
"W-What do you mean?"
"You'll understand when you become a great person. Don't cry, didn't you tell me you'll be a super hero? Save your tears for those who failed to be saved, save your tears for those who you kill, save your tears for those who lose their families. I don't want to see your tears so please, smile"
In tears he said "Saber . . I love you"
"Me too, I love you Shirou"
"Will we meet again?"
"We will, in the garden of Avalon"
With tears in his cheek he force a smile and said "Then, until we meet again".
"I'll be waiting"
And then continuation of the dream.
I'm not even a saberfag, why would I waste my time to make this?
>>
>>116724752
The series works pretty well with the changes. The magic makes more sense, or they give more time to showing how it works. The scenes between the characters all have a bit more weight, this most episode nailed the problems with fathers both Rin and Shirou have, in a way that was better than the VN. It was arguably the best one so far, and it hardly had any fights.

Watching Shirou take a shot for Rin is amusing, it kind of nails the "Shirou is too dumb to live" sentiment that Rin was trying to drill into him earlier in the episode, but allows Rin to see it in a different way.
>>
>>116715870
It's already as good as Rin and Sakura's
they're all shit

Are there any changes they might make to Heaven's Feel?

Fate overall is the worst route and that is just because it is the infodump route. Heaven's feel is far worse at times but it gets far better at others. UBW is just solid throughout so I am not sure why you liked that less.

Basically UBW>HF(non-Sakura parts)>Fate

UBW is more consistent in quality all the way trough, but HF is better when it have its moments.

>>
>>116730042
>Also why the hell did Rider survive?
Because getting Sakura alone would count as bad end, with Rider as bonus it's better.
Jokes aside, because Sakura is still some Grail experiment overflowing with mana, enough to sustain a Servant even outside a HGW.

Kind of like what happens in UBW Good End, except is a little more believable.

>>116730123
It's just very linear and follows a quite predictable battle shonen development.
Not bad per se, but UBW and HF have much more impact - but don't know it when you've only read the first route and think Fate is the best thing ever.
("you" meant as as average reader)
>>
>>116728707
While I do agree that in HF, Shirou and Saber didn't argue that much, I felt like they were comrades/friends to a lesser extent. Especially since in HF, I don't believe that Saber and Shirou had that much interaction/conversation (on stuff other than the war) between each other. In UBW, you hear them talk a lot with each other about different things. One of the conversations in that route that stuck out to me was the one they had in the storage room (when Shirou was doing training with his "strengthening"). At a certain point, Saber talked about her knowing about a mage/warlock (in her time); where while she considered him a great friend, she also considered him a huge trouble that caused a lot of problems in her time. I don't remember any other time in the other two routes where Saber talked about things of her past that doesn't relate to her troubles (or drama unless someone who can remember can clarify).
>>
The problem with Fate route is the same with Arc's route in Tsukihime.
They're intro routes. So, since you get all the meat in the other routes, the intro route just feels pointless (especially because many of the important explanations you got in the intro route get repeated in the other ones).

Nasu should get rid of the idea of intro routes and just make each route stand on its own and have them reveal their own share of important details and secrets.

As for the romance, that's sadly entirely Shirou'a fault. The guy is just plain boring (not as a character, since his issues make him interesting, but as a person, since he's rather dull).
That's why his romance with Saber and Sakura can come off as boring, since as far as relationship dynamics go, there's little to nothing.
It works well with Rin because of her personality. She knows how to deal with Shirou and how to play his buttons (he can also press her buttons well every now and then).

Romance in Fate was shit because there is no place for one. You can see that outside of fanfic that is UBW Good, Saber will never accept a quiet way of living with her loved one.

Other problem is that you can't have a good romance with Saber staying in this world because quality would be significantly diminished by the fact that in order for Saber to stay and keep on living with her ideals she would need a lot of prana which Shirou cannot provide and therefore asspulls would have to come out.

They pretty much had to have the romance due to this being an eroge, but honestly given the option I would just cut it. Maybe even straight up keep Saber male.

You could focus the route more towards developing Shirou's character early one; most people will agree he was weakest in Fate. If they really needed to I'm sure they could come up with a love interest for him.
