Now correct me if I’m wrong, friends, but is there not a possibility that Maiya could have been healed using Avalon after she’d been injured by Berserker?
You know… because Kiritsugu was carrying it when he was attending to her proverbial deathbed??
Wasn’t Iris using it to keep her body from immediately collapsing and falling apart at the time?
iirc by that point iri had already returned the sheath to kerry since she knew it wasn’t going to be much use to her anymore (i’m pretty sure that she definitely returned it to him before she was kidnapped by berserker)
so yes the sheath could potentially have been used/was in a position to be used to heal maiya at that time, providing that kerry had been able to transfer it to maiya and then call saber back in time for her proximity to activate its healing power before maiya kicked it
arguably it would still have kept her alive without saber’s presence, albeit not healed
i mean, isn’t that what happened to shirou? kiritsugu melded him with avalon or something to keep him alive after the fire? saber had already been returned to the grail at that point, hadn’t she?
It all gets a bit convoluted, but I think since she had no contract or connection with Saber it wouldn’t have worked as well. I think it only worked to bring Shirou back from the brink of death because Saber’s mana was still around the place, since remnants of the spirit reportedly stick around even after the Servant is killed or their contract is cancelled, which is what allows them to make new Master-Servant contracts.
After much discussion, nobody’s really sure if she could have been helped or not. THE POINT REMAINS, surely he had at least some knowledge of healing magic, whether it was enhanced by the presence of the sheath or not, so surely someone could have done something in this fantastical world where anything is possible and people don’t always die when they’re killed.
I’m just rly bitter about unnecessary character deaths don’t mind me
NOTION SECONDED[ PRECIOUS AUS ]
Amaze'fate ladies defeat their own canon' a story in which maiya with a gun, iri with a wire bird, and saber with excalibur all beat up a single fridge. that's it. 5,000 words. a modern masterpeice
[ yes ;w; I would hate it if he didn’t save her when he had the chance to, and it wouldn’t make sense since he would obviously want Maiya to help him till the end and it wouldn’t make sense for him to just let her die there… but arghhhhhh feeels ]He would have wanted backup yes
[ nawwwww :( Oh well. ]I mean, I don’t claim to be any expert on the logistics of Fateverse magic, beause you could get PhDs in that stuff, but it was worth a shot. I’d hate to think that Kiritsugu would have had the ability to save her and not done anything (which he wouldn’t have. We know this. It would then be a case of Maiya having to be dead because he has to be alooone for the final battle and onwards otherwise you’d be interfering with the canon set out in FSN and I’d be getting cranky with the writers)
[ BADASS FAMILIARS YO ]
I’ve been discussing this very thing. We think that Saber left some sort of mana residue in the area since remnants of the spirt remain in the world even if the Grail is destroyed (like she does at the end of the Fate route, sticking around a bit before she disappears) so theoretically that was what gave the sheath enough of a boost to save the dying Shirou. So there’s a slim chance it would have worked, but since she didn’t have any kind of contract with Saber and Saber was by that point on the other side of town, it probably wouldn’t have helped much[ but Saber wasn’t near when Kiritsugu used Avalon on Shirou right? ]

I’M HAVING A CRISIS SITUATION I THOUGHT I’D SHARE
Though research reveals (thanks Moog) that due to Saber not being near at the time Avalon probably wouldn’t have worked for healing her. But still. The point remains. I’m upset. Get that girl out of the fridge unless she’s getting cake
