Does the prologue only apply to the Fate branch? (spoilers)

It's alright, we feel your pain. Noone wants to admit being gar for Berserker.

Unread post by Echoman » February 4th, 2009, 10:11 am

I assumed that because most of the events take place before the branching points, they applied to all of the scenarios, but I started Unlimited Blade Works, and got to the point where Rider gets killed off, and twice Rin has mentioned she wanted to use her command spell again. Seems strange, because she used it once in the prologue, and once to tell Archer not to attack Shirou, correct? So using it a third time would not be particularly wise.

Or am I missing something here? Just something I noticed... Please no spoilers after this point.

Well, there's the fact that in the prologue Rin gets cornered by Saber no matter if you later want to follow the UBW path and stop Saber from doing so with a command spell. But I guess this is one of those moments where you're supposed to look the other way and let it pass as a insignificant mistake :P

Well yeah, I assumed that much didn't happen, of course. (If it did, then she'd have used three command spells already by that point, because didn't she use one to make Archer retreat quickly?)

What?
The only command spells she uses are one for obedience, and one to get him to disappear to prevent him from being killed by Saber at the very beginning. ._.
She talks and talks about wanting to use one more, but she knows she can't.

In UBW Rin doesn't use the command spell for making Archer dissappear, instead using her second command spell for
