The Queen’s Chastisement

女王の躾


Medb
Mmm!
It’s nice and open here, I like it!

Medb
Well, I did say, “bring me someplace where we can be alone with one another…♡”
Fufu…

Medb
But I didn’t expect you to go along with it when I was being so obvious.
Maybe I was wrong about you.

Medb
Thank you, for letting me have my way. But…

Medb
I’ll have to take points off for bringing a third wheel.
Who’s the shorty? Is she your bodyguard?

Medb
Come to think of it, she’s always by your side.
Not that I care, I don’t even remember her name.

Mashu
Right… sorry, I am Mashu Kyrielight.
Senpai’s reliable Demi-Servant.

Dr Roman
Ahem.
Not that it matters, but I’m here too, obviously.

Dr Roman
As your overseer, I won’t let the passions of youth get the best of you!
Not a chance!

Medb
Is that so? Well, it doesn’t matter.
Neither of you interest me anyway.

Medb
The important one here is you, listening to my wish and giving me what I want.

Medb
And to think that you’d pick this place yourself.
I’d thought you just had no sense of danger, but maybe you just think you’re untouchable?

Medb
I mean, even I’d lose interest if things were always this easy.
I worry about why you trust me so much.

Medb
Yes… we have time, so let me ask this before we start.

Medb
What do you think about me?
An unheroic Reverse Hero? Just a queen who’s hard to deal with?

  1. Friend and/or girlfriend material?
  2. Umm… you lie to yourself, but you’re really a good person deep down?

[1] Medb
I see. That wasn’t too bad, being so assertive.
But you have no chance. You’re not a warrior, after all.

[1] Medb
I need men who can fight.
What do I even do with a plain normal human?

[2] Medb
Oh? The name of Queen Medb doesn’t mean much to you, huh?
Sorry, but I won’t ever fall for you.

Medb
I am summoned only to dominate and seize from others.
The only things I need are excellent soldiers, and neighbouring lands worth my while.

Medb
Answering the summons of Chaldea is something like an appraisal.

Medb
Just you watch. Behind the black, I can prepare and launch as many invasions as I want.

Medb
Dr Roman, was it?
You might want to find a less accessible place to store your Holy Grails.

Medb
You seem pretty weak to seduction, anyway.
Summon three more unfaithful ones like me, and you’d be snapped up straight away, you know?

Dr Roman
Hahaha, no worries there!
The lock on the vault is courtesy of Da Vinci-chan.

Dr Roman
I don’t even know how to open it!
She just refuses to tell me no matter what I say, damn it!

Dr Roman
So seduction won’t work on me.
Or rather, it would be meaningless.

Dr Roman
Yep, the strongest form of security is not even knowing…
That way, we won’t have to worry about honeytrapping at all!

Fou…

  1. Nice one, Da Vinci-chan…
  2. She’s a pro when it comes to handling the Doctor…

Medb
Da Vinci… what an eyesore.
We don’t need two women with Golden Rule (Body).

Medb
I’ll put a knife in her back soon enough…
A Caster is no match for me, anyway.

Medb
But there’s something weird about her…
Like she can class change to an Assassin when we get down to it…

Mashu
Um, Miss Medb?
May I ask you a question as well?

Medb
Hm? What is it?
If it’s a good question, I’ll answer. But keep it short.

Mashu
I-I’ll try my best.
Um, as you’ve just said, you are a Rider… is that correct?

Medb
That’s right. I’m a Rider.
I rode every day and every night. What about it?

Mashu
Yes, but… you normally fight with a… wand…?
So I just thought, maybe, you were a Caster as well…

Mashu
I can see that your Noble Phantasm calls forth a chariot.
But I don’t really know what happens after that…

Mashu
And the opponent doesn’t get blown back either, so I was wondering what kind of attack it is.
That’s my question.

Medb
Wait, really? You want to see it? Do you really?

Dr Roman
Stup- you’re asking this now, Mashu?!
What if Lancelot comes and yells at me?

Fou-fou, fou!

  1. Let’s stop there, Mashu.
  2. Actually, I was wondering too…

[1] Mashu
But Senpai, grasping the fighting style of the Servants by your side directly increases our chances of survival.

[1] Mashu
We have to make things clear, for your sake as well!

[2] Dr Roman
Noooooooo!
It’s too early for you two to learn about the legends of Celtic heroes!

Medb
Do I even have to explain what happens inside the chariot?

Medb
I am Queen Medb. The mother of warriors.
My class is Rider, not because I ride a chariot.

Medb
It’s men. I ride men.
So I am a Rider. Isn’t it obvious?

Mashu
…Um.
So, you mean, so, um…!

Medb
It feels absolutely amazing, you know, riding that.
Being in control is the best feeling in the world!

Medb
I don’t mind being ridden either, but I like holding the reins, you know?

Medb
And strong, tough, hard men just get me so hot, I want to slap a collar on them!

Medb
After all, the stronger they are, the more muddled I become.
I can feel it in my arms, my legs, my body.

Medb
Like something boiling up from my very cells, seeping out everywhere.
Until even the inside of my head is in a dizzying haze…

Medb
And then, it’s like I’m reborn!
A nectar you can never stop having once you’ve tasted it!

Medb
Really, the pleasures that men have are tiny in comparison.
It’s almost pathetic.

Medb
A strong man is there only to kill the enemy.
Do you know that’s nothing compared to the joy of giving birth?

Medb
That’s why I like strong men.
I love a battlefield where I can meet those warriors!

Medb
No matter who I try to be, that’s the one truth that cannot be changed.
I am she who rides the chariot. rides men, and rides the field of battle.

Medb
That’s the existence of Queen Medb, the invader.
Was that answer good enough for you?

Mashu
Y-Yes…
I don’t really understand, but I’ve recorded what you said.

Mashu
But, um… give birth, you said?
Did you have children, Miss Medb?

Medb
Yes, more than I can count.
It’s what a country is built on, and absolutely necessary in defending it.

  1. Do you… like children..?

Medb
No?
Not really,

Medb
It’s so annoying to raise them.
I just leave that to someone else, anyway.

Medb
What I mean is, it’s important for a woman to ride lots of men and make lots of babies!
Because it feels good, and it’s necessary!

Medb
Oh, um, right.
Sorry, I think I missed an explanation.

Medb
The way I ‘birth’ soldiers is not the same as normal birth.
You didn’t know that, did you?

Mashu
No, we didn’t.
Please explain in detail.

Medb
As you can clearly see, I’m the queen of Connacht.
The way I birth my soldiers is different from creating an heir.

Medb
I just need the fluids of a base warrior to replicate into soliders.

Medb
I bring my target into the chariot, and our bodies become one.
After that, I cut my index finger and let the blood flow onto the earth.

Medb
…Like mixing my blood into mead.

Medb
And so, my darling soldiers are created, like instant homunculi.

Medb
Just like that, soldiers that never betray me and belong only to me.

Medb
Well, it’s a drawback that they’re not as strong as the original warrior.
So it’s my style to overcome that with numbers.

Medb
You got that? That’s the way I fight.
So, well…

Medb
It’s not the same as making an heir.
For that, well, you know…

Medb
How can I be blessed with something like that, if it isn’t with someone I love with all my heart?

Dr Roman
(An unexpected declaration worthy of a virgin maiden…!)

Dr Roman
(Having that sense of morality on top of acting like such a nice girl…
She really is hard to deal with…!)

Medb
That’s enough! Anyway!
It’s time to get back on topic… what say we bare ourselves?!

Dr Roman
But I don’t remember that ever being the topic?!

Mashu
B-But why?
Don’t tell you want to… with Senpai…!

Medb
That’s right. I’ll be taking your Master….
Just the head, anyway, to decorate my chariot.

Mashu
…!

Medb
I am a woman who never forgets humiliation.
What was done to me, must be paid in return.

Medb
I know that you defeated my nation here, in this singularity.

Medb
I must do this, or I might as well not exist at all.
What is a queen who does not revenge herself?

Dr Roman
That’s ridiculous!
You’re a contracted Servant. You can’t harm your Master!

Dr Roman
Queen Medb might have done as she liked, but you’re not an exception!
If it comes down to it, a Command Spell can force you to withdraw!

Medb
Fufu, that’s impossible.
This time, at least, my selfishness comes first.

Fou?!

Medb
I told you, didn’t I?
I invited you, and you accepted it.

Medb
A geis has been established.
It won’t be undone until I’m satisfied.

Medb
Do you understand now, cheeky little sheep?
There’s no escape.

  1. What an evil smile…!
  2. What an evil honeytrap…!

Medb
Hmph! I like your reaction! Not bad!
Fitting for the Master who defeated me once!

Medb
It is time to fight for me, my soldiers!
Show them the power of the Celts!

Dr Roman
Soldiers appeared from the ground in an instant…!
Get ready, she’s serious!

Medb
Of course. I’m always serious when it counts.
I’ll always create an opportunity to trample anyone underfoot, even my own Master!

Medb
Will your Servant lose strength first?
Or will I run out of soldiers first?

Medb
Let’s try this one more time!
Here I come!

Mashu
Ugh…!
Servant Medb, incoming!

Mashu
Let’s give her everything that we’ve got, Master!

[battle with Medb and her soldiers]

Mashu
We’ve neutralized Queen Medb!
She’s been rendered impotent!

Dr Roman
Well done!
And Mashu, just say ‘powerless’ next time, okay?

Medb
Grr…!
But this isn’t riiiiiiiiight!

Medb
I got everything ready!
I never let my guard down!

Medb
And you still beat me face-to-face! Me!
How can I lose…!

Dr Roman
I’m sure she’s taken a lot of damage…
But it looks like the sting of defeat is overwriting that…

  1. Just look at those little feet stamp!
  2. Just look at that whip swing!

Mashu
In any case, this should dissolve Miss Medb’s geis.

Mashu
Since Senpai has completely rejected Miss Medb’s invitation.

Medb
Hey! What do you mean, ‘rejected’?
I wasn’t rejected! I just wasn’t strong enough!

Medb
If I really go all out, I can make any man or woman fall head over heels for me!

Medb
This is your fault!
You’re bad at using me!

Medb
If you’d made me stronger to begin with, I’d have flattened you completely!

Medb
It’s too laid-back, the way you do things at Chaldea!
If I were in charge of repairing the human order, it’d be done in an instant!

Medb
You wouldn’t even need to be on the front lines!
The war would go smoothly!

Medb
Oh, whatever! I’m going back now!
You’d better power me up before the next fight!

Medb
What? I’m not going to tell you how!
I’m not going to tell you to use a Grail! Or use a Grail!

  1. Hahaha, no can do.
  2. But I did use one, Medb…

[1] Medb
Now you’re just completely pissing me off!
Idiot! I’ll remember this!

[2] Medb
Huh…? Really?
You’ve already used one on me…?

[2] Medb
But wait, you mean I was at full strength and still lost?
I’m not that useless a queen, right?

[2] Mashu
Yes… unfortunately, I’m also female, so Miss Medb’s power boost doesn’t work against me…

[2] Medb
Ugh…! That won’t happen next time.
Next time, your party better be full of male Servants!

Mashu
Queen Medb is retreating.
She’s probably going back to Chaldea…

Dr Roman
Yeah, I’m detecting Medb on this side.
She’s rushing straight for the cafeteria.

Dr Roman
Well, it looks like a binge is coming.
I do hope that she’d mind Chaldea’s supplies…

  1. She’ll turn her frustration into a springboard for growth.
  2. She’ll turn those calories into more weight.

Dr Roman
I guess so.
I was concerned for a moment there, but it looks like it’s been a good lesson for Medb!

Dr Roman
Also, Medb revealed a hidden ability of hers during the fight.
She should be of even more use to you from now on.

Dr Roman
That just now was probably Medb’s way of compromising with you.
Not that she herself seems to realize it.

Mashu
Yes, in her own way, I think Miss Medb is showing that she trusts you, Master.

Mashu
After all, she didn’t fight us out of hate.
She was just annoyed, so…

  1. …like how a friend would feel.
  2. I don’t know about that… maybe she’s just an airhead…

[1] Mashu
Yes!
I look forward to our next battle with Miss Medb!

[2] Fou, fou…
