    Summary

    “Sylvain,” Felix says, quietly. “Aren’t you tired of me yet?”

    The question comes out before he can stop himself, words climbing out like acid against his throat, like ash that burns his tongue, thick and dark and altogether heavy. He has so much he wants to say, suddenly, but words have never been his strength, so he stands there silently, about to burst and unravel, waiting for an answer he wishes wouldn’t come.

    Sylvain squeezes his hand twice. Love you.

    ___

    Felix is having a bad day, so Sylvain stays behind and makes things worse better

    Summary

    It’s the most honest thought Felix has had about the war in a long time, raw against his throat and blistering hot, threatening to spill emotions he buried and left behind when Fhirdiad burned. His regret has eroded over the years, a canyon once roaring with rapids of anger and conviction, now sluggish with only a trickle of memory.

    Sometimes, the tide of the past washes in and floods him, leaving him as battered and broken as the bodies of Dimitri and the other Blue Lions left interred in the mass grave near the Tailtean Plains. He’s always shoring up the dam that holds it back.

    Seven years after the end of the war, Felix and Dorothea visit a new museum in Enbarr.

    Summary

    At its closest observation, it is nothing abnormal. It’s like every single shield he’s ever seen before.

    ....but Felix has never seen a shield that held more pride in its small frame.

    Summary

    The first person to break his vigil is, of course, Felix, after Dedue spent one month watching over the grave.
    “Get up. The kingdom needs you. Our family needs you. Either stop wasting your life away here and continue his work or get it over with and die already.”
    Dedue can't muster the effort to lift his head. Grass is just starting to grow back over the dirt that their husband’s body displaced. The flowers he planted are sprouting. He thinks of the roots digging into the man he loves more than life itself and feels them as if they were cutting into his own flesh. He says nothing, fighting the urge to rip them all up and tear them to shreds so nothing will touch his dear one again. These were Dimitri’s favorite flowers.
