    Summary

    “Sweater curse” (definition), aka. “curse of the love sweater”: A term used by knitters to describe the belief that if a knitter gives a sweater to a significant other, it will lead to the recipient breaking up with the knitter. In an alternative formulation of the myth, the relationship will end before the sweater is ever completed.

    Felix tries to knit Sylvain a sweater, despite the old wives’ tales about a curse.

    It takes him a while; ten years, to be exact.

    This is how it goes.

    Summary

    For some reason, Felix’s gaze is catching on the white breaths puffing out of Sylvain’s mouth. An old governess used to tell him tales of the North, how anyone who went into the mountains was destined to freeze to death on the icy slopes, and how the Sreng were only able to survive thanks to a pact they’d made with some foreign God. Glenn had helpfully pointed out that that story was probably made up. “And not freezing to death,” he appends to Sylvain’s list, reaching out and giving the leather straps on the bundled coat one last tug, because he can.

    “And not freezing,” Sylvain agrees with a slow smile, after he finally swings up onto his horse. “But don’t worry about me, I’m a Gautier.”

    Sylvain comes back from Sreng with treaty in hand and a fever that won't go away.

    Summary

    Sirens hunt desire to feast and fill the gap in their own souls.
    So why, then, is Sylvain chasing down a sailor without any desires? Even if he is pretty, what is there to gain?

    Summary

    To the naked eye they look no different from ordinary trinkets, lucky charms perhaps, simple objects the dead often keep on them in the grave.

    Maybe they are. Maybe it’s Zagreus that makes them hold power.

    (concept: god's keepsakes and blessings change zagreus' appearance and behavior during an escape. thanatos takes notice.)
