    Summary

    "“Dear guests,” Dimitri intones from behind the mayor’s desk, voice warmer than Sylvain has ever heard it, “we are here today to celebrate the marriage between Felix Hugo Fraldarius, son of Rodrigue and Joanna Fraldarius, and Sylvain José Gautier, son of two people who did not deserve to be here today.”
    The whole room seems to catch its collective breath when Dimitri gestures for them to read their vows; Sylvain gets a small piece of paper out of his pocket, if only to pretend he has not learned them by heart under the shower lights, the wall tiles very poor imitations of Felix’s eyes yet still managing to make him cry until he didn’t, though he’ll forever say it was because he got shampoo in his eyes."

     

    On Valentine's Day, Felix and Sylvain get married. There's a lot that comes before that. Written as a gift for @leviicorpus.

    Summary

    Sylvain and Lorenz make a bet, with Felix and Claude as unwitting participants: who can get a date first? If you think this sounds like a terrible idea, you are right. Very quickly they both realize they're in over their heads - but maybe, just maybe, there's a way for everything to work out.

    Summary

    The first gig Dorothea helps Sylvain land is an extended stunt cameo in a stoner flick, a chance to commit to self-parody, playing a washed-up child star turned weed dealer. The wardrobe department outfits him in sunglasses and Hawaiian shirts. He grows some scruff and behaves like an acerbic dirtbag for two weeks. “Pitch-perfect casting,” writes the Tribune. Says Entertainment Weekly: “A familiar face in a nearly unrecognizable performance, Gautier looks like he’s having so much fun being loathsome.”

    Summary

    When Sylvain is six and a half and climbs to the top of a tower with no one’s hand in his, he realizes that each and every one of the people he loves has been born as a gift to something else. Dimitri was born for Faerghus, and Felix was born for Dimitri. Glenn was born for the royal family, and Ingrid was born for Galatea and for Glenn. He realizes, too, that what they’re for decides their future. Dimitri will lead them into a better world. Felix will guide his path, and Glenn will protect his life, and Ingrid will bind her future to theirs.

    And Sylvain, who was born for the border, will stand in a watchtower. He will see the enemy before it comes, and he will keep Dimitri and Felix and Ingrid and Glenn safe.


    Dimitri reappears after five years. Sylvain knows it's his role to fix the mess they're in, but he doesn't know how.
