"And thus The Clan is formed....

I'm not sure if I should be amused by all this or horrified at the thought of what I had a hand in creating....

My god. What have I done?"
"Welcome to the Clan. Leave your sanity at the door."
Traditional greeting to new authors or followers of the EC.
"Also, bring along your inner child/nerd/whatever. Otherwise, the average ambient level of silliness is likely to cause Epic Nerd Rage. Yes, we know Beast's Lair doesn't like us or our "work". At all. No, we don't care in the slightest. Why? Because we're too busy having fun!"
Occasional greeting follow-up.

The Emiya Clan is a series of collaborative forums posts made by members of the The Mechanics of In Flight, a forum set up by author Gabriel Blessing for the purpose of discussing his works The Hill of Swords and In Flight

The madness began in the forums "TFF Omakes" thread. Although the thread was mostly devoted to humorous outtakes, eventually a few people began inserting a few romantic snippets which included Miya, Saber and Rin (once they had "returned"). GB himself wrote his non-canon (so far) Good End for the story.

Then one day, user Silver_Sun17 wrote a prompt that suggested Kazehana bringing Aoko Aozaki to Izumo House... which resulted in a short snippet that had both Aoko and Touko both waking up drunk in Shirou's bed, demanding that he "take responsibility." (Alternate version with additional content.)

It... sort of exploded from there.

At the most recent count, the Clan currently numbers roughly 24 wives, including Sekirei, Heroic Spirits, Magi, and at least one personification of God. There are also at least 29 children.

The Clan runs on the assumption that every fictional universe exists somewhere, often through Rule of Cool, Time Travel Hijinks, and The BAR.

We just say Zelretch planned everything.

Many of the forum posts have been collected in the community, In Flight Omakes for easier reading.

As of March 19th, 2012, the chronicler of the Emiya Clan, Benbladesman, finished his arduously worked on index of all relevant stories on the forums up until that date. It is here. It is sorted by thread and author and very long, but is very helpful in getting those who want to jump in oriented without trawling trough several threads worth of posts.

See Fate/stay night and Sekirei for the tropes of those respective universes. And see In Flight for the tropes from Gabriel Blessing's original work.

The Emiya Clan in general contains examples of:


*cue house lockdown and weapons free*

Clan Wars

Black Zero

  • The Berserker: Kiri replaces Lancelot as the Berserker class in the 4th Holy Grail War.
  • Heroic BSOD: Kiri, when he finally return to the Throne of Heroes after his participation in an alternate 5th Holy Grail War.

Devil's Wings

First Draft on, and the rewrite.

Main Character: Shinta Emiya

Synopsis: Shinta follows an unknown, suddenly-appeared source of prana out of the Uminari University Library, while Chiho and Rin are checking out a case at the university's hospital. Of course he finds trouble.

Crossover: Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha

  • Combination Attack: Word of God says that Shinta and Nanoha will create several for themselves, in the style of Super Robot Wars to boot.
  • Happily Adopted: Word of God also states that Yukari Sahashi will adopt Hayate and her Knights at the end of A's. The snowball effect between these two personalities is inevitable.
  • Puppy Love: Kind of expected, putting the half-Sekirei son of an infamous Eroge Protagonist in the same airspace as a very-differently-famous Magical Girl. Said magical girl's usual acquaintances simply confuse the matter further.

Fate School Days

Harry Potter and the Winging of Aya

  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Aya displays some of this during one of the omakes
  • Kangaroo Court: Played straight at first, thankfully averted due to the arrival of Shirou, Aya and Lorelei
  • Mama Bear: Tsukiumi. Upon noticing Harry for the first time, she attacked him.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Delivered by Loreleir Barthomeloi to the court, particularly Fudge and Umbridge


Blood+ Emiya

Main Character: Johnathan 'Jun' Emiya

Synopsis: Jun is signed up for a student exchange program as a prank by Riko. He ends up going to Koza high school, Okinawa where he gets involved in strange movements from vampires, a secret organization and even the U.S army

Crossover: Blood +

A Season for Lunacy

Main Character: The Entire Clan, but specifically the Fellowship of the Sane

Synopsis: Altrouge Brunestud-Emiya has decided to host this year's Christmas party, and invites everyone. Even that other clan, the Tohnos. Why? Because she wants to show up her sister Arcueid (and win a candy bet). And also to get Shirou and Shiki to stop trying to stab each other to death every time either man is within a hundred meters of the other. Meanwhile, four heroes (really, four people who don't want to drown in the inevitably-oncoming onslaught of insanity) try to break free of the trap.

Hilarity Ensues Up to Eleven and Beyond the Impossible, because Rule of Funny. Attempting to take this fic seriously will make Your Head Asplode.

Crossover: Too many to list

 Shiki: "And how are we alive?"

Shirou: "A Wizard Did It."

Shiki: "It’s sad that we can reasonably use that excuse these days…"


  • All Just a Dream: You didn't really think that The Fellowship of the Sane was really going to escape did you?
  • Awkward Mother Daughter Bonding Activity: Sakura teaching Sakuya and Erika S&M play, Bazett and Ivone going Braveheart on the Bacon Crusaders, Touko and Souhiro experimenting on random guests...
  • Bedmate Reveal: Happened to Kiri and Artemis after a night in Vegas. Immediately followed by...
  • Church Militant: The crusaders of The Holy Empire of Bacannia embody this as a way of life.
  • Cool Versus Awesome: Eggong Ragnaros versus Yarn Kraken with Keiko curbstomping them both with the Burning Gundam, Chuck Norris versus Santa Claus, George W. Bush versus Vladimir Putin.
  • Eleventh-Hour Ranger: Chuck Norris shows up when everything's gone to Hell and offers to help fix it all. Apparently, even he can't overcome the insanity and ends up brawling with Santa Claus in Detroit.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: Trying to get out. That certainly means that you can't try.
  • Foe Yay: When everyone goes crazy, Rin and Luvia have sex.
  • Game Show: Zelretch, Illya, Minaka, and Araya Souren pit Clan Emiya versus Clan Tohno in one of the most screwed up ones of all time.
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: While everything is going straight to hell, Mikiya plays poker with Araya, Rock and Gendo Ikari, who dimension hopped to evade a party at NERV with the same level of insanity.
  • It Got Worse: This sums up the Christmas Party in itself.
  • Kill Sat: Zelretch has one in orbit. It functions as a railgun in the shape of a giant yellow smiley face.
  • Personality Swap: Due to a pranks gone wrong, many of the Clan's personality were reversed.
  • Putting the Band Back Together: AU!Illya blackmails Eiko, DA!Haru, and BK!Kiri to form the !A Us. Subverted in that they weren't actually together to begin with, but all had played instruments at one point.
  • Santa Claus: Definitely not how the stories make him out to be. Oh, and stay away from the reindeer, they're carnivorous.
  • Screw the Rules, I Make Them : Alaya-ko takes advantage of all the chaos to come down and have some fun with Shirou.
  • She Is All Grown Up: Shirou gets this when he sees Alter!Illya for the first time. Subverted in that she's from a different reality...with highly disturbing implications.
  • Shotacon: A personality shifting potion causes Aoko to temporarily regress to this.
  • The Reveal: Of Gil's girlfriend Caren Ortesia.
  • They Killed Kenny: Like most of the Nasuverse Lancer gets this shoved upon him for the duration of the game show. It gets to the point where Illya and Zelretch are summoning him just to see how many ways they can make him suffer.
  • Thoroughly Mistaken Identity: Miya mistakes Tamaki for her son Takeshi even they look nothing alike. It's made worse by the fact that at that moment she's trying to kill Takeshi for having his first time with his ashikabi Haruhi Fujioka.
  • Troll: Zelretch and AU!Illya. Oh so much so.
  • Undesirable Prize: For Minaka at the end of the Game Show that is.
  • Up to Eleven: This story cranks the Clan's insanity level up to eleven, way pass it and straight to Beyond the Impossible.

Paradox Sun

Main Character: Touma Emiya, Reiko Emiya

Synopsis: Touma and Reiko accidentally fall into another world where a war rages across the earth. Reiko is taken prisoner by one side, and Touma is enlisted by the other. Both must cope with the realities of their new life, try and find a way to bring themselves home together, and above all, keep their spirits from breaking under the weight of war.

Crossover: Valkyria Chronicles

  • Another Dimension: The VC!Verse
  • The Brigadier: Captain Varrot fills this role, since most of the high command are non entity assholes.
  • Camp Lesbian: Dallas, and boy does she express it.
  • The Captain: Eleanor Varrot: She's even willing to put up with Touma calling her Auntie.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: What Reiko has to go through at the hands of Clementia Forster
  • Cold Sniper: Marina Wulfstan
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Those around Touma and Reiko keep finding out pieces of this.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Rodriguez, but even he has problems breaking Third Platoon.
  • Falling Into Command: Touma is given command over a third of the squad as a platoon leader before they head off into combat. Subverted in that he actually has combat experience and training thanks to his siblings.
  • Fantastic Racism: Prevalent against Darcsens. Touma's unwillingness to listen to it is what endears him to them.
  • Father to His Men: Most of the main Gallian officers. Touma most of all.
  • General Ripper: The Gallian High Command when it comes to the Militia. Most of the Imperials.
  • The Heart: Freesia
  • Heavy Sleeper: Touma.
    • Sleepwalking: Touma is such a heavy sleeper that one time, he walks around the training field, then back to the barracks and no one knows. And how does his squadmates find out? For the male, it's the case mentionned above. For the female, Touma snucks into their room, climb up and hugged Marina.
  • The Lancer: Vyse, from Skies of Arcadia fame, acts as Touma's second in command.
  • Like an Old Married Couple: Marina describes Welkin and Alicia's interactions as this. And according to Touma, so does Kiri and Artemis.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Maximilian, very much so.
  • Mildly Military: The entire Militia, but Touma and Third Platoon most of all.
  • More Expendable Than You: Touma towards both his men and the other NC Os he serves with.
  • The Nicknamer: Touma gives pretty much everyone in his command, plus the other officers, some rather silly nicknames that he calls them by outside of comabt.
  • Only Sane Man: Aika and Karl, both of whom got roped into Third by virtue of being connected to one of the problem children of the squad (who were purposefully shoved into Third).
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Selvaria and Reiko.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Captain Varrot and Lieutenant Gunther for the Gallians. Selvaria Bles and Radi Jaegar for the Imperials (mainly Reiko).
  • Red Baron: Johann is apparently well known as "The Iron" for feats before the story. Touma eventually becomes known as "The Gallian Ghost"
  • Sergeant Rock: Largo and Ghost!Touma.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: Everyone, sooner or later, if they survive.
  • Shipper on Deck: Reiko is trying to play matchmaking for Selvaria and Johann.
  • Split Personality: Touma and "The Ghost"
  • Stockholm Syndrome: Reiko toward Selvaria and Johann.
  • The Stoic: Nils and Marina. Ghost!Touma as well.
  • Team Mom: Alicia
  • Team Dad: Welkin
  • Undying Loyalty: Touma to the squad. Reiko to the only two people she actually likes on the Imperial side.
  • War Is Hell: It just gets worse and worse as you go on.
