    Summary

    Crests are status. Crests are strength. Crests are power.

    Claude doesn't get it. Sure, the healing his crest gives him is handy. But no one talks about the drawbacks. As far as he's concerned, Fódlan's obsession with crests is overrated. His Crest of Riegan isn't worth the way it burns through his body. It isn't worth the way it skitters beneath the surface of his skin. The itch it thrums through his blood during battle isn't worth the retching he's left with hours later.

    ... He's not the only one suffering, right?

    Summary

    “Did you feel it?” Teach asks. “It feels like…” they pause and take a sip of their tea. “I don’t know. Everything’s so strange these days. I feel like I’m going to burst.”

    “When did this start?”

    “A few moons ago. I think. It’s hard to tell. I lose when I am, too.” They aren’t making a lot of sense, but words spill out of their mouth, level but rapid. "First it was just little things but now it's big things. I think things inside of me aren’t working as well as they used to.”

    --

    It's all very well being fused with the power of a goddess, but it can't be good for your long term health. A post-Verdant Wind imagining of Byleth's future as the ruler of Fódlan not going quite how they might have planned, and how they bring their friends back to help them.
