Title: Path of the King Author: Neoalfa Rating: M Genre: Adventure/Romance Status: WIP Fandom: Fate/stay Night Pairings: Shirou/Multi (Caster seems to be the main focus though) Summary: "With swords that aren't yours, with skills that aren't yours, for dreams that aren't yours. Your entire existence is a lie!" - "Then I'll show you that even fake dreams can become reality." A different choice, a different path, a different FATE. Link: Link Hrmm. A bit hard to describe... Alright, so it basically has Kiritsugu revealing his status as a mage earlier and actually training Shirou correctly, at least a bit. He also tells Shirou about the Grail War, and the destruction it had caused. Another major difference is that Kiritsugu's final words are different and makes Shirou promise to not forget to save himself, whilst trying to save others. From there, it spirals into Shirou still trying to be a Hero...but instead of lying around doing nothing for a few years, he actually takes it upon himself to work hard and become the vigilante known as Archer. In terms of quality, the beginning probably needs some work, but it isn't to bad, probably about average in terms of storytelling and grammar. However, you can see that it gets progressively better as it goes. there's also some cheesiness in the first few chapter's as well, but mostly due to the fact Shirou is trying to be what amounts to a Comic Book Superhero. I'll also say English his second language, and he's self-taught. Really, his grammar is actually fairly decent in spite of that, though I admit I might have missed somethings. Punctuation and such isn't my forte, spelling is. There are also a couple appearances of two character's from Persona 4, Dojima Ryuutaro and his assistant who's name I can't remember. Anyway, on a whole, I'd give it a 4/5.
