    Summary

    She’s killed before. She’s been injured before. But nothing could compare to this. It’s like the sword is sliding between her ribs just as it slides between his. It’s like her heart rips open in time with the brutal rhythm of his coming to a stop.

    When he finally falls, she can’t comprehend it. The raging cacophony of the battle turns to white noise in her ears. Her brother— Her protector—

    Reinhardt is dead.

    --

    or: Reinhardt dies, Olwen grieves, and life goes on.

    Summary

    Maybe that’s what Byleth’s been doing since then, all this time: throwing herself in front of the sword of Edelgard’s own making.

    Byleth was raised a mercenary. She protected those that could pay, and didn’t feel much about it one way or another; she was happy enough to follow where her father led. It’s harder to have to choose where her sword is pointed. She never had to worry about it before. But if she thinks of herself as Edelgard’s shield, that she can understand. That, she knows, is right.

    -

    Byleth chooses Edelgard, and has to keep choosing.

    Summary

    (Time goes by so slowly / and time can do so much)

    Daystar must always destroy the barrier, enter the castle and find his father. He must always be at least sixteen years old when he did so in order to wield the sword. But what if — what if he had been sixteen years old already when the wizards cast their spells? What if Cimorene could fix it so no one had to wait very long at all?

    In that case, what she and Daystar would one day do need not be changed; it was only a matter of when.

    In which Cimorene ignores thaumaturgical convention and decides to get those sixteen years back.
