    Summary

    Felix wants to improve. He wants to be able to talk to Dimitri without his hands curling into his fists, aching as his nails dig into the flesh of his palms, leaving indents in their wake.

    Or: Felix takes some time to himself, and then he takes some time to rectify things with Dimitri.

    Summary

    “They say if you pray to Celestia, they’ll give you your heart’s desire.”

    Morax blinks, and asks, “Then why doesn’t everyone pray for it? For what they wish?”

    Guizhong sighs. “Because they’ll take away something of equal worth from you, and you’ll most likely die, or waste away forever in the lonely depths of the world.”
    -
    This is how it goes: 500 years ago, Zhongli makes a Faustian deal with Celestia and everything falls apart.

    In exchange for the freedom of the burden of being an archon, Zhongli is cursed to be forgotten by everyone he meets; the geo archon is erased from history, nobody knows what the dragon statues mean, and the element geo is considered cursed.

    And so, Zhongli drifts in the world, unable to fade or be remembered, until he meets Ajax.

    Summary

    After the events at Gareg Mach, everything just seemed to fall apart. Everything that Felix could ever consider reliable, shattered. Everything he could ever have faith in, gone. Including Dimitri, as much as he loathed the fact.

    And yet, even as every part of him wanted to abandon this, something kept pulling him back.

    Note: The fic fills in some of the gaps in Dimitri's and Felix's paths that are only mentioned in supports and the story. As such, it is full of spoilers. Primarily, after the end of Part One, and through all of Part Two.

    Summary

    It’s been two months. They don’t text, though Felix’s number is saved in Dimitri’s phone, and he sometimes wistfully stares at it. They don’t talk. This is the way they meet: by opportunity, by convenience, by … excuse. They meet at events, at functions, which Felix attends because it’s his job, and which Dimitri attends because he is looking to become elected to the highest government seat in Fódlan. This is the space between them. This is the inches between Felix’s hand and his own. This is every word they’ve ever spoken in anger. Yes, then: he’s missed Felix, his body and his voice and the strange ways he cares for people. He’s missed him every day for the past five years.

    Dimitri is running for office. Felix works for the Black Eagles campaign.

    This wouldn't be an issue if they didn't keep sleeping with each other.

    Summary

    Their destination lies on the edge of the Tailtean Plains, old ruins that sit devoured by the nature surrounding it. The only thing tended to within the dilapidated stones was a statue—the main reason Sylvain had chosen it for Annette’s newest song about a lost love. The statue itself isn’t anything too special, bronze and marble, standing tall amidst the green plant life and stone rubble of what had to have once been a grandiose estate.

    "You know, the legend says if you kiss the statue, and you're soul mates, he'll wake up!"

    "Annette, you are not kissing a statue, I'm not letting you do that."

    "I have disinfectant wipes," Sylvain offers, grinning when Felix glares.

    "Oh, I don't actually want to kiss him!" Annette says, waving her hand dismissively. "It is a cute legend, though, maybe I should—"

    "I'm going to!” Sylvain announces, slinging his arms over their shoulders as they head underneath the arch into the ruins.

    "You are going to get some sort of disease."

     

    .

    Felix has never been one to believe in soulmates, until he manages to bring a statue to life.
