How would Shirou have been if he was raised by a loving family instead of Taiga?
It's a self-defense mechanism that fails at the stat of HF.
Rin = Girl he has the secret crush on, school idol
Saber = Legendary knight who's meeting he will not forget even centuries later
Sakura = His junior who he's been attracted to for some time really, but has to constantly convince himself "She's just helping me out because she feels guilty, she's like family, stop thinking sexual thoughts already"
All three girls have some special claim to his heart that establishes itself when its their route.
He wouldn't have a strong sense of duty, or a decent education since she's the only reason he attends class. He'd be worse at fencing too. Oneechans help you grow as a person.
Of course a fake can't be as good as the original.
You can't fool me, /a/non. Shirou has way better fashion sense with his MANLY SCARF.
Taiga's fanbase is small but loving.
something something she's too old or some such
Prisma Illyaverse Shirou.
What if Shirou had been raised by Old Man Henderson?
>The blue clothed Lancer rushed through the streets. To think he had to abandon a good fight simply because he had been seen. Sure he did not get to go all out thanks to his piece-of-worthless-shit Master, but a good fight was a good fight nonetheless. And now he would be forced to kill some random schmuck because he had been at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Still, Lancer looked forward to the next time he saw that pretentious Archer. Lancer was going to have himself a good fight.
Lancer found the house he needed. A run-down western style building that was like a weeping sore in an otherwise pristine neighborhood. Not one to be deterred by the unkempt lawn or the small forest of pink colored plastic birds adorning it. He reached the nearly-falling-off-its-rusted-hinges door, kicked it down without preamble and shot inside. Hopefully he would be able to off the poor schmuck without trouble, he'd even do him the kindness of killing him quickly and painlessly.
Cu Chulainn had seen a lot in his time. Gods and gods. Wars and skirmishes. He had been from one corner of his homeland to the other, stealing hearts and wives. He had singlehandedly killed entire armies and fought his own son to the death. Hell, he'd chained himself to a tree so he would die standing after being tricked and betrayed. It would normally be safe to say that there is not much in the world that would throw him for a loop.
He would become archer
>Implying Taiga is not the most loving family you could ever ask for
>still has the same fucking Shirt
At least Shiki got a wardrobe change, give Shirou one that isn't a retarded jacket.
>Not rocking the baseball shirt
>Rin watched Shirou's high jump on the way home
>Sakura watched Shirou's high jump from the classroom
>Luvia watched Shirou's high jump from the streetside
>Issei watched Shirou's high jump from the student council room
>Shiki watched Shirou's high jump while looking for people to murder
IT ALL MAKES SENSE
As much as I love Taiga, she seems to be a hard person to be with in a long term relashionship.
Doesn't act her age, not mature, way too energetic to keep up with, can't cook or do any housework and way too little free time with work/babysitting Shirou and the gang and family errants. Doesn't mean she isn't top girl material, I am just looking at it from an objective pov, from how males her age would probably look at her.
