    Summary

    "By the time you're forgetting your own age, you're past the point of caring."

    When Byleth first heard Jeralt say these words, she didn't quite understand what he meant. Now, after repeating the same years over and over again, she understands all too well. For decades she has fought a losing war against the Adrestian Empire, getting ever so slightly closer to victory with each death.

    But after narrowly surviving a brutal fight with Edelgard in the Imperial Palace and theoretically ending the war, she learns that her fight is not quite over. As she is coming to grips with this, she and her allies are annihilated by a weapon unlike anything they have seen before.

    Now she finds herself back at the beginning yet again, and decides she must attempt the unthinkable. She must work with someone she has spent decades trying to kill to uncover the truth behind the war and the truth behind who, or what, she is.

    Summary

    "When a spark of love your heart doth keep, descend into darkness of eternal sleep, when a hand cut by steel causes blood to seep. Saved by true love's kiss or thy life the Goddess shall reap."

    He had heard this tale too many times. A reminder of his own fate, spun in the words of a children’s story.

    He repeated his mental mantra once again. You must never learn to love. You are to be Lady Edelgard’s sword and shield. You must protect her with your life. He couldn’t do that if he was dead...or sleeping, depending on what “eternal sleep” truly meant.

    And true love’s kiss? What a ridiculous notion. There was no such thing.

    Summary

    The voidfish's ability eats holes in reality. This means that, say, if you fed the destiny and identity of the seven most important people in the fate of the universe to it, there could be some repercussions.
    Like your universe deciding to take matters into its own hands.
    By taking the seven most important people in the fate of another universe, and kind of just. Applying them. To your universe. Just to find those original ones.
    Vox Machina did not expect this. Who the hell are the 'Seven Birds', and how are they meant to find them, precisely?

    Summary

    Just as they start thinning the crowd, Trevor dripping with sweat and viscera and exhaustion, another wave appears and he curses loudly. Despite his failing vision, he can see Sypha faltering, can see Alucard’s unnatural paleness and the shaking in his hands. It hits him, then, like jumping into a river in the middle of winter. It chills him to the bone and makes his heart clench with an emotion he does not want to name. He fights with a renewed vigor, if only to make time.

    He’s starting to lose it, lose time, lose himself to the repetition of slashing and slicing and stabbing.

    Or: in which the trio is thrown backwards and, unfortunately, can't keep things a secret.
