    Summary

    “If you don’t want me to call you angel, you can tell me your name.”
    “Felix. Felix Fraldarius.”
    The name tickles at his brain like an old, forgotten song, like the poems he used to know by heart as a schoolkid and had to recite in front of the class, a single rhyme without a title or a verse to make sense of it. There are reminiscences flashing through his mind in vague cutscenes and fixed shots: a school playground and four kids playing cops and robbers; a hand pulling him up from a hole in the ground, deep inside a forest; amber eyes, and tears in the back of a car speeding down a highway, and hushed promises two children were too young to formulate and too old to understand.
    “I’d introduce myself, but you already know me.”
    “No,” Février — Felix Fraldarius says.
    Sylvain frowns. “You said my name.”
    “I know Sylvain Gautier,” Felix answers. “I don’t know you.”

    Sylvain pretends to ally with Felix, from a rival mafia organization, in order to infiltrate and destroy it from the inside. It's unfortunate, how feelings get in the way. Written for Sylvix Big Bang 2020.

    Summary

    Immediately after the war ends, Felix leaves. He relinquishes his title, his dukedom, his inheritance, and promptly fucks off the face of the earth. Sylvain lets him go without a fight, yet finds him again nearly three years later—working as a specialty weapons dealer in a small, serene town that sits upon a major trade route.

    Hit by a sudden impulsive need to not let Felix go again, Sylvain extends his stay in Felix's town an extra day, then an extra two, then an extra three. And although Felix had abandoned his old life for a reason, he finds that no matter where he is, he'll always have space in his heart for Sylvain.

    Summary

    His bride is beautiful, even if her smile is paper-thin. Sylvain doesn’t mind: he’s been practicing his own fake smile for decades. The ceremony proceeds without a hitch, and under the watchful eye of everyone that politically matters in Fodlan and Sreng, Sylvain becomes a married man, vowing 'until death do us part' to a woman whose name he can barely remember.

    That night, before he goes off to consummate the price of peace, he meets Ingrid’s eyes once. He ensured that there would be more than enough exotic food for her to enjoy, but even though the festivities last until sunrise, he never sees her take a single bite. It is only when their eyes meet that his carefully crafted facade breaks, and that gnawing void that consumes everything on its path roars it’s head, screaming at him he’s making a mistake. He closes his eyes and carves the smile back on his face. He’s doing this for Fodlan. What is his own happiness compared to that?

    --

     

    Three years after the end of the war, Sylvain brokers a lasting peace between Fodlan and Sreng. The price? His hand in marriage. A story about Sylvain, death and rebirth.

    Summary

    Felix starts a sentence, fails it, starts it again. “I’m not good at faith magic.”
    Dimitri cracks a wobbly attempt at a smile. “You must have known enough.”

    (the one where dimitri gets hurt, felix has a whole thing about it, and they are extremely themselves.)

    Summary

    Inside, he is a twisted, grotesque thing. The beast his brother became is exactly who Sylvain is too, they are after all from the same stock. He hides it behind falseness and a charming smile, well styled hair and chiselled features. It’s a beautiful mask, but the inside will reveal itself one day.

    There is one problem. Felix thinks he is beautiful.

    Or: the five times Felix called Sylvain beautiful, and the one time Sylvain believed him.
