    Summary

    “I’m so proud of you, my nephew.” Uncle cups Zuko’s face in his lined hand. The gesture is so tender, his palm so warm, that Zuko has to take a fortifying breath against the sudden swell of emotion in his chest.

    “I want to be a good leader, Uncle,” Zuko says. “I want to look after my people.”

    “You will,” Uncle says. “You are, nephew.”

     

    In a new era of peace, Zuko works to be a very different Fire Lord than his forefathers. Based on this tumblr post.

    “Still, it’s a song from your world,” said Evan. “You should sing them. How else will anyone ever get a chance to hear them?”

    Summary

    “How are you going to get the One-Eyed Demon of Garreg Mach, the Boar Prince of Faerghus, smuggled past Dukedom soldiers? What plan could you possibly have to get a creature that incapable of even pretending it isn’t a bloodthirsty beast into Dominic without getting caught?”

    The Professor gives him one of their steady, unreadable stares. They definitely do not and could not possibly have answered him, “You’re going to pretend to be married to him.”

    Summary

    Black Eagles route. Felix travels to Fhirdiad, and Dimitri realizes that the guillotine of inevitability hangs over them in more ways than one.

    The pre-morning glow is almost ethereal, and Dimitri unconsciously holds his breath for a few seconds as he considers how Felix looks when the sky behind him is painted in muted pastels. The word beautiful surfaces in Dimitri’s mind, but quickly sinks into a pile of other rejected descriptors – after careful consideration, he settles on devastating.

    Dimitri begins to say, “You look like – ”

    “You had better not be about to say that I look like Glenn,” Felix cuts in.

    “No,” Dimitri says, but he smiles ruefully because Felix does, even if he wasn't thinking it. “You look like Kyphon.”

    A few seconds pass. Then, Felix reaches out to grab Dimitri’s hand in between his and pulls Dimitri forward, out of the shadows of the castle and into the light of the rising sun. He looks up at Dimitri, eyes ablaze with an emotion that Dimitri can’t easily describe: something fierce, something prideful, something profoundly sad.

    “I don’t think I did,” Felix says, “but perhaps I resemble Kyphon now.”
