This was not through lack of trying; Clara and I must have attempted to summon here at least a quadrillion times, give or take. My public face was one of delight and joy to have been able to NP ascend Umu, but I was dejected that my favourite Saber’s alternative version didn’t appear.
So fast forward to this evening. I have bronchitis, am feeling lethargic from medicine, and am tired from waking up coughing all night. I saw the Fate CCC Pre-Release Campaign had started, with a limited chance to summon her again. Why not, I thought with the energy of a wilted piece of lettuce.
So I hit the 10× Summon button, and returned to watching those oddly comforting tailed logs on another screen.
The pseudo-random number generators on those remote servers had entropy fed from most favourable sources this evening. Look at me trying to mask my excitement; I can’t believe I got her!
