    Summary

    When the Black Eagles Strike Force's top mole in the Leicester Alliance is discovered, Byleth proposes a drastic plan to gather the necessary intelligence for an invasion. Hubert and Ferdinand will have to fake a clandestine relationship, feud with Edelgard, flee the Empire, and take refuge in the Alliance to begin gathering the information the emperor needs . . . assuming they don't kill each other in the process.

    Summary

    Governor von Aegir attends the performance of his newly commissioned opera celebrating Adrestian-Faerghan unity . . . and it’s a disaster. Fortunately, his personal secretary and ?companion? Hubert has some ideas to salvage the evening. Though they should probably figure out those question marks while they’re at it.

    Summary

    Once he dreamed of peeling away his gloves and running bare fingers through that bright orange hair. But they found themselves on opposite sides of the war--a war that Hubert lost.

    He intends to make Ferdinand pay for that. Ferdinand has other plans.

    (A version of post-Blue Lions route in which Ferdinand joined the Kingdom of Faerghus, but convinces them to take Hubert alive. For intelligence purposes. Obviously.)

    Summary

    Even when they took tea, rarer these days than ever, Hubert appeared utterly determined not to let Ferdinand see anything more than he already had. Frankly, Ferdinand wasn’t sure what else he could possibly dredge up from those impossibly inky depths that was worse than the oil slick he’d lived alongside for the past six years, but one didn’t catch a Fodlandy without patience and bait aplenty.


    Six months after the end of the war, they all have their coping mechanisms. The Emperor tends to her garden, Ferdinand to his stables, and Hubert to his duties. It would all work perfectly, if Ferdinand could simply keep the oven door shut.

    Summary

    Dimitri would offer to help with this, but he knows his own strength; with his Crest, there’s no telling when snipping one branch might become slicing the entire plant—like Mercedes’ scissors, he thinks begrudgingly—and besides, it’s something of a personal ritual for Dedue, and he knows this. The garden is an escape for him, a return to the land he left and the family that will never come back.
    It doesn’t prevent him from watching, though. And he does watch; takes in every detail as Dedue, out of his armor for once in his life, wearing whatever clothes he’s managed to salvage from other Duscur over the past five years instead, does something so peaceful as tend to flowers, finally let his hands which are so accustomed to killing do something that breathes life instead.

    (dimitri, dedue, a garden, and just the time they can muster)
