    Summary

    In the quiet of elegance, of fresh blood and ice — there is nothing so breathtaking as the way Byleth arcs her blade and kills.

    (Or: Edelgard's most unforgivable sin has always been greed.)

    Summary

    She’s always been a weapon. She just didn’t realize– when you’re a sword, you can be pointed in directions you didn’t intend. At the Empress’s heart, for instance.

    Summary

    History writes of the scarlet red of Emperor Edelgard von Hresvelg’s robes and the rivers of blood that once ran at her feet. What escapes its view, seen by one woman alone, is the red flush of El’s cheeks, bright red as the apples which hang heavy from the trees.

    Summary

    “They look happy.” Ingrid says, watching the dancers. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen the professor smile like that.”

    “I don’t think she ever has smiled like that before.” Dorothea says. And her charm is still easy to summon, and she turns to flash Ingrid with a smile she hopes is convincing. “Are you jealous? After this I have no doubt there would be swarms of eligible bachelors hoping for a chance with you. One of them might even deserve you.”

    Ingrid shakes her head. “Don’t tease me. I’m not jealous. I’m just a bit…” Ingrid is still looking out, and the edges of her lips quirk when Byleth misjudges a step and has to be saved by Edelgard. The professor never was a dancer, Dorothea thinks. “I’m not sure how I feel, if I’m honest. But I’m glad they’re happy. Someone has to be.”
