    Summary

    Lorenz gives him a scathing look. “Spidersweed,” he explains snootily (endearingly, Claude has come to call it), “is a flower of fortitude and resilience; of fidelity and a lifetime of promises.”

    “That’s a lot for one flower to mean,” Claude tells him with a teasing grin. 

    Lorenz, as predicted, flushes and sputters and protests the significance of its symbolism, but inwardly Claude agrees. Spidersweed is a beautiful flower, with wonderful meaning.

    "Will you promise to survive this war with me, Lorenz?" Claude says conversationally, but his stare is piercing and his smile speaks volumes.

    Lorenz… pauses. He looks at Claude with wide eyes, struck speechless for once in his life.

    "Promise me," Claude commands.

    In the face of that, Lorenz can do nothing but agree.

    Claude falls in love with the idea of a flower; his Deer show him what love truly means.

    Summary

    Hubert von Vestra worked alone. He, unlike many of the flimsy teenagers roaming the Academy, had a clear purpose for the year ahead: build the groundwork for the coming war, as well as cripple the Church by learning its secrets. Byleth Eisner was certainly a Church secret.

    And if a certain silver-tongued fool also saw value in unearthing the truth about her, well - Hubert would not mind acquiring another tool. Though he would have to keep his fingers well away from the razor-sharp edge of Claude von Riegan's mind, or risk losing them.

    Update 19/01/2021: Now beta'ed & amended with extra angst!

    Summary

    One day he woke up and he was done: with the League and Macro Cosmo, the titles and the sponsors. He was free! Except no one told him how goddamn scary freedom could be.

    (Or, Leon tries to figure out what to do with the rest of his life. Raihan being part of that was just... inevitable, at this point.)

    Summary

    Then the Alliance delegation shows up, and their offering strolls through the gates of the monastery like he already owns the place.

    A reminder, for those who need it: Cyril is not an idiot. He has good eyes and he uses them.

    An observation, for those who want it: The Golden Deer house leader is Almyran.

    ~

    Cyril knows a lot more than he lets on, Claude is far less covert than he thinks he is, and messing with the guy your parents told you was a possibly-unkillable demon-prince isn’t usually supposed to earn you a lasting friendship but hey… life is already pretty damn weird.

    A scraped knee; Dimitri was worried for a moment, but it was nothing too serious. Claude is worried as well - for different reasons
