    Summary

    The morning after her and Byleth's wedding, Emperor Edelgard von Hresvelg wakes up in her old bedroom in Garreg Mach to discover that she has brown hair, only one Crest, ten happy and healthy brothers and sisters, and a bad habit of sleeping through her professor's lectures. Hubert is unusually cheerful, Byleth teaches the Blue Lions, and nobody has heard of the Flame Emperor.

    As she works to figure out how to return to the world and the future she knew, Edelgard will do anything to get close to her beloved wife Byleth again... even if it means abandoning her friends in the Black Eagles Strike Force. Meanwhile, she must unravel the mystery of the Hurricane King and his sinister henchman the Death Knight. What could Those Who Slither in the Dark be plotting in this strange new world — and if Edelgard isn't a part of their plans, then who is?

    Summary

    Byleth was meant to be the professor and guider of one of the three factions of Fodlan. They were meant to show their students the right way both in battlefield and outside it: something that would eventually affect the future of the continent and its leaders. However, a chance encounter with a mysterious and opportunistic individual persuades Byleth to make a choice. A choice that may help them find out the truth about themselves and the world around them. A choice that has cataclysmic results not only for Byleth themselves and their students but possibly for Fódlan as whole. A choice that may change the course of history and bring forth a conflict between two ancient groups long forgotten.

    (A hypothetical fifth route in which Byleth sides with the Agarthans. Heavily OC focused.Half prose, half Faux-walkthrough)

    Summary

    Three years after the war, Claude finally begins to see the fruits of his labor. Now as King of Almyra, he works closely with Fodlan's new monarch, Byleth, to create unity between the two nations. Just as everything was going according to plan, he wakes up in his old bed at the monastery. Not too strange, he thinks, until he bumps into a very young, and surprisingly kind, Sylvain in the halls.

    Claude's been sent to the past, and he makes it his mission to save his friends from the oncoming threat of war. But with less than a year to stop Edelgard and the rest of the Black Eagles, can he really change their fate?

    Summary

    Before that night, Edelgard, Dimitri, and Claude all believed that their paths were forever set, that their inner demons and obstacles in life would never be understood by the others, and that they would do whatever it takes to see their dreams achieved, no matter the cost.

    However, on that fateful night, a shooting star proved them all wrong.

    A rather odd-looking shooting star.

    A metal star, plummeting towards the earth, with three luminous beings on it.
