Cú Chulainn - Prototype

To the Nameless Battlefield

Proto Cú: –Hi.

Proto Cú: Rise and shine. Say, how was your sleep?

Fujimaru 1: Where are we?

Fujimaru 2: Wait, where's Mash?

Proto Cú: Let's see, this is a place in the middle of nowhere. Oh, the Missy isn't here.

Proto Cú: Just you and me. My bad, for forcing you into this.

Proto Cú: The Doctor's voice doesn't reach here. That little creature isn't here, either.

Proto Cú: Why? Well, that's simple.

Proto Cú: This is–

Fujimaru 1: In a dream?

Fujimaru 2: In my consciousness?

Proto Cú: You can call it a dream, or perhaps somewhere deeper than consciousness and unconsciousness?

Proto Cú: I'm not clear on the details, it occasionally happens to Servants and Masters.

Proto Cú: A shared dream. Put it simply, we can see each other's memories–

Proto Cú: That's why we can both exist here like this, even though it's "my dream."

Proto Cú: That's right. This is my dream. My memories. My battlefield.

Proto Cú: It looks like the one you saw before? Yeah, I suppose it does from your point of view.

Proto Cú: It's linked to the most similar sight you've seen recently, I think.

Proto Cú: Look, here they come. To me, they look like the armies of Connacht–

Proto Cú: But who knows what they look like to you. Hey, snap out of it, it's gonna be a fight.

Proto Cú: Try to keep up with your commands! If you can summon other Heroic Spirits, then do it!

Proto Cú: –Let's go!


Proto Cú: Hahaha! Yes, that's the way!

Proto Cú: Mow down that horde of enemies! Stab them, slash them, hack them, there's no end to them!

Proto Cú: Just like the incoming waves. An endless battle on an endless battlefield!

Proto Cú: Sure brought up some nice memories, didn't it? Hahaha!

Proto Cú: Come on, Master! If we lose, we die. Well, not that I'm sure about that–

Proto Cú: But fight like it is! Now then, more are coming!


Proto Cú: ...I guess this is it?

Proto Cú: Just as I'm getting into it, it's over. Hardly worth the effort.

Proto Cú: How about you? Still ready for more?

Fujimaru 1: I'm a little tired.

Proto Cú: Haha! You're honest!

Fujimaru 2: I can keep going.

Proto Cú: Sure you're not overdoing it? Well, not that I can help you.

Proto Cú: Oh–

Proto Cú: Well well, this is a good dream! So saving the best one for last, huh?

Proto Cú: Besides, talk about being unfair. That one over there is using "the spear of the real me" from the start.

Cú Chulainn?: That's unfortunate. Why are you fighting with a hastily-made spear?

Proto Cú: I got my reasons. I guess it reminds me of my last summon.

Cú Chulainn?: The answer's obvious, but I'll ask anyway. You want me to go easy on you?

Proto Cú: You've got to be kidding.

Cú Chulainn?: Ah, just as I'd hoped. Impressive, Cú Chulainn, hero of Ulster.

Proto Cú: What are you talking about? Well, Mr. "Cú Chulainn" of Ulster?

Fujimaru 1: Huh?

Fujimaru 2: Two Cú Chulainn?

Proto Cú: Well, I guess it's possible. Meeting yourself in a dream. You get that, don't you?

Cú Chulainn?: Nice, that's really a good way to put it. Well, shall we do this–

Proto Cú: Sure! Let's go, Master!


Proto Cú: ...So it's a draw.

Cú Chulainn?: With our Noble Phantasms, it's a miracle we didn't both bite the dust.

Cú Chulainn?: I'm impressed. My younger self is quite a tough guy.

Proto Cú: My older self isn't too bad either. I'll finish you off next time.

Cú Chulainn?: What? That's my line.

Fujimaru 1: So uh, what's going on?

Fujimaru 2: What do you mean?

Proto Cú: Uh... Well, basically, you see.

Proto Cú: My skills have improved within the dream. When you wake up, I'm sure it will be of use.

Proto Cú: See you, Master. Thanks for the company–
