tip: "uchiha sasuke/uzumaki naruto" angst kudos>10
I adore this! The tonal whiplash is pulled off well IMO, the lines between funny and sad/horrifying are blurred just enough to really feel the impact. I especially liked Ashe screaming and Dimitri patting his head to make sure it’s in place and the whole scene with Felix was great. I also liked the visual of everyone following Dimitri like baby chicks!
aaaa thank you!!! Dimitri being cryptically caring in his own feral way and the rest of the Blue Lions being all '??? ??????? oh ok just roll with it' is pretty much what this fic's about. And I HAD to put the shirt-ripping scene in somehow, I HAD to. Which would lead to Sylvain interjecting, and then Dimitri kneeling before Felix innuendo-style, and then... (starts rambling until I ramble off a cliff)Dimitri doesn't say 'follow me!' but everyone does anyway, says a lot about the Blue Lions' dynamic, eh? Those 'go away!'s ain't working on anyone, Dimitri...
