Fire Emblem Fates Rewrite (Revelation)

Chapter Text

(The chapter opens on Corrin and Azura walking together through Valla.)

Azura: The attacks are growing closer together now... If you ask me, that means that we have to be getting closer. 

Corrin: It's amazing how long time can drag on for in this place. I knew Valla was a bit of a wasteland, but this is still ridiculous... 

Azura: I understand that completely... 

Corrin: Hold on. I think I see something in the distance again... 

Azura: In other words, it's time for us all to grab our weapons once more... 

Corrin: Yeah... That wouldn't be an awful idea, as much as I hate to say it...

Azura: Is there a familiar face there? Do you know who could be leading the group?

Corrin: Wait... I think I do recognize the leader, but... 

Azura: ...But what? Is something wrong? 

Corrin: It looks like Iago and Hans again...

Azura: What?!

Corrin: It could very well be possible, given that Anankos has the power to revive the dead in these zombie-like forms... 

Azura: If it's really them, then we must act immediately. 

Corrin: I really don't like the implications of this... 

Azura: You aren't the only one. Let's go and get ready. 

Corrin: Of course. Another day, another battle...

(The battle begins. The objective is to defeat Iago and Hans, a pair of bosses waiting on the other side of the map. The enemies are nearly all Nohrians, though there are a few exceptions scattered here and there.)

(When any unit initiates combat with Iago, the following dialogue plays out.)

Iago: I believe the great Anankos will save us all... How can you still defy him...?

(When Iago is defeated, the following dialogue plays out.)

Iago: This cannot be... How have I fallen again...?!

(When any unit initiates combat with Hans, the following dialogue plays out.)

Hans: You truly think that you can stand against us? That's a foolish mistake that you won't soon forget!

(When Hans is defeated, the following dialogue plays out.)

Hans: Urgh... No... This can't be happening...! 

(After the battle, Corrin and Azura stand together once again.)

Corrin: This is a nightmare...

Azura: If they were brought back, then that means that Anankos can use even the most recent of deaths to his advantage...

Corrin: Exactly. I don't think it will work for the people who we've already freed from his possession, but... There are countless people who died in the war that he could easily use to his advantage. We had best not allow things to get any worse than they already have. 

Azura: We must act quickly... It's good that we're getting closer to the palace now. I don't even want to imagine how terrible things could get if this lasts for too much longer. 

Corrin: We have to get rid of him as soon as possible, but... Even when we do...

Azura: What is it?

Corrin: Remember what the Rainbow Sage said back in Notre Sagesse? When gods pass away by unnatural means, terrible things can happen. Your amulet got the power to cure corruption, for example. That was a good thing, but...

Azura: I see... You're thinking about what happened to your mother. 

Corrin: She didn't even die then. She was merely hurt badly enough to release all of her power, and it came to me... You know what happened next. 

Azura: It was too much for you to control. 

Corrin: Exactly... Anankos has done so much, and he's capable of so many things. I mean, his death the first time kept an entire nation's people alive in constant agony as they prayed for revenge. That's terrible. 

Azura: We won't know for sure what happens with his death until he does pass on, but... We still need to get rid of him. Hesitating now won't end this war any sooner. 

Corrin: I know that you're right, but... Still, it's wild to think about. Things could very easily go south, and we're going to have to be careful about it. 

Azura: It's better that we defeat him and endure the consequences than allow him to wage war on Nohr and Hoshido. Both nations are weakened from the previous fights, and it would be an utter bloodbath. 

Corrin: Yeah... Alright. Let's just keep moving. That will give me something else to think about. 

Azura: It's going to be alright, Corrin. Promise. 

Corrin: I hope that's one promise you're able to fulfill when this is all over...
