    Summary

    When Sylvain is somewhere between three and four months away from turning three years old, a sprawling black script appears on his wrist. Sylvain, being a baby, of course does not remember this moment: his parents leaning over his crib, peering down at the lettering. His father scoffs first, and his mother sighs.

    “It can’t ever be convenient, can it?” Father shakes his head, a grimace on his face. “And here, I was hoping that we needn’t look.”

    “It is His Grace’s boy, at least,” Mother tries to placate him. She puts a hand on his arm, one that Father doesn’t bother shrugging off. “If nothing else, it’ll be good for strengthening ties.”

    “There is that, I suppose,” Father allows, but his tone is cold, still; he’s disappointed with Felix before he’s even met him.

    Summary

    Don’t apologize,” Felix snaps, and it’s comfortably lacking in heat, “Just- why?”

    Sylvain snorts. “You know why.”

    Felix is quiet for a moment. And then another. Sylvain catches his gaze and finds his brows furrowed again.

    “Felix,” Sylvain says, “You know why.”

    Felix bristles, “Obviously I don’t.”

    --

    Sylvain thinks his friends know far more than they do.

    Summary

    In the midst of the Five Years War, Claude von Riegan sets up camp with his men at Garreg Mach with plans to take it over as an Alliance base. Upon exploring the old monastery, Claude discovers the bridge to the cathedral has partially collapsed, and on the other side, perched in the goddess tower and stranded, is the crown prince, feasting on the bodies of old Imperial corpses. Once upon a time, Claude called his man a friend, but Dimitri is not the same person he was years ago.

    Summary

    You are going to die, Byleth thinks. Yet the words will never be able to reach them.

    Or,

    Byleth knows when and how people die, yet he cannot speak of it. He can change it, of course, but the price will fall entirely on him.

    Not that it's going to stop Byleth.

    Summary

    "She is beautiful, and she is perfect. It is foolish to say so, because the goddess herself says perfect beings cannot exist - but Cichol knows now she must have been wrong, because his daughter is perfect. They name her Cethleann. In the old tongue, it means 'light.'"

    Cichol, Cethleann, what they lost, and who they became.
