    Summary

    There are people who change lives. People who cross our path throughout life to encourage us when we need it most, who guide us on our way when we lose ourselves, who help us to sustain ourselves when we are about to fall down. People who inadvertently mark a turning point in our lives.

    Sylvain was ten years old when he met the person who would give him enough hope to fight for his future.

    Summary

    “Farewell, the next time we meet may well be when I organize one of these for myself.”

    Sylvain froze in the act of setting his champagne flute on the table. It really did feel as if he had gone cold, ice pricked down his spine, and then he suddenly felt hot.

    “What?”

    Felix’s expression hadn’t changed. He looked coolly aloof, if slightly irritated, but that was just his face these days. Felix made a small impatient sound, presumably at having to repeat himself, “I’ve been told I need to consider marriage. Sooner rather than later.”

    --
    Tldr; after learning Felix is being pressured to marry, Sylvain makes some ill-advised advances on his friend, and realizes his feelings for Felix aren't exactly as platonic as he once thought.

    Summary

    Sylvain was raised to be perfect, raised to meet a standard that was too high for anyone to ever be expected to meet. For years he tried to either way, only for him to fall short. All that was left for him now was the hope of being able to keep the one he loved safe and a promise made on the night that carved his fate into stone.

    ~~ ♡ ~~

    Aka what if Sylvain was the one that was disowned instead of Miklan.

    Summary

    Byleth: You didn't have the courage?
    Sylvain: No... But if I thought I could have escaped, I would have tried. I'd leave behind House Gautier and the life of a nobleman...and anybody who knew I had a Crest.

    Summary

    Byleth stares at him for a moment before she tilts her head slightly. This is honestly the most emotion Felix has seen from her. "You and Sylvain?" She asks.

    Felix sighs. He'd hoped that when his professor found out that she wouldn't bother to ask any questions about it. No such luck it seems.

    "No need to worry about it, Professor. Most marriages between nobles are purely political. I can't say the same for Sylvain but I certainly will not let our history affect my studies."

    Summary

    Sylvain has a difficult start at life, and he probably would have turned out to be a completely different person if not because he found the one thing he couldn't hate no matter how hard he tried.

    Summary

    “Sylvain, this is the Lord and Lady Itha and their daughter, Althea.” They stood as they were introduced, Lord Itha coming forward to shake Sylvain’s hand and the ladies curtseying demurely.

    “My lord, my lady, Miss Althea,” he greeted them in turn. “To what do we owe the pleasure of your company today?”

    “Please sit down, everyone,” the margrave said, waving his hand. “We have much to discuss.”

    ...

    Felix has been gone for three years. Sylvain still has hope that he'll return soon, but Margrave Gautier has other plans for his son.

    Summary

    “A male soul mate is worse not having one at all!” roared the margrave. “How do you expect to have children and pass on your Crest with a male soulmate?”

    When Sylvain's soul mark appears, he couldn't be happier to have a soulmate. His father, however, disagrees.

    Summary

    Sylvain wasn't stupid. Maybe he wasn't the smartest person ever, but he could at least piece together some things.

    And he pieced together that there was something off about his family.
