    Summary

    Bernadetta von Varley's afraid of a lot of things—dark, cold rooms; her father; dying far from home—but one of those things isn't good, solid critique on her work. Everyone seems too nervous about hurting her feelings to give her any true feedback on anything, but that's probably because she's not worth spending time on and no one thinks she can improve—

    "Come on, Bernadetta. You can do better than that. Take a good, long look. No, you’ve gotta spread your…legs…wider.”

    Turns out Sylvain gives very good critiques, both in training and in her writing. Who's to say he wouldn't give even better advice if she wrote...something different?

    Summary

    There was a reason, she explained, that she sent students from the infirmary with ice for bruises and bandages for scrapes, that she didn't heal away illnesses but provided medicines instead. Because if the body could heal without magic, the body should heal without magic--not allowed to mend itself, it would simply forget how. Over exposure to Faith magic led to thin skin and brittle bones, to muscles that tore and struggled to heal over and grow, to injuries that appeared faster and healed slower.

    This was especially true of children.

    Summary

    Felix has brushed death before: with the back of his knuckles, with the tips of his fingers. There’ve been many close calls, some of them closer than others. Felix has had lances in his belly, arrows buried in the meat of his thighs, poison-dipped knives swung near his neck. Yet none of them—not a single one—compares to how it feels when the next word is ripped out of his mouth through his teeth, a whisper gritted down to nothing but air when he shivers.

    “…Dimitri?”


    In a world where Byleth chose the Alliance, Felix sees Dimitri's ghost.

    Summary

    That's the thing about guilt. It doesn't go away with time. It just numbs, slow and steady, like an old limp or a bad back. Ever present, but one learns to live with it.

    Felix Fraldarius is the second son of the Fraldarius family. Everyone likes to remind him of this. He isn't thrilled.

    A story about guilt, authenticity, and duty.
