    Summary

    After a long recovery, Edelgard returns to the orphanage in Enbarr where she's been volunteering with Dorothea to visit the children. While she's there, she reflects on the procedure she just underwent and the emotional healing she experienced when Dorothea interviewed her in preparation to play the Emperor in the new opera about her life. Coincidentally, that opera opens on the day of Edelgard's return, and when she goes to see it, an unexpected scene serves as both a pleasant surprise and a realization.

    Crimson Flower spoilers.

    Summary

    Her spouse-hunting days at the academy were long past and she had since come to terms with the fact that Dorothea, the orphan from the streets of Enbarr, would never be loved.

    Why Edelgard thought it was appropriate to overthrow the status quo, as always, was beyond her.

    Alternatively: Dorothea hears the words "I love you" from someone who finally means it and slightly short-circuits

    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.”

    Summary

    “It’s about Catherine and Cyril.”

    “What about them? They’re dead. They died for Rhea when we took Fhirdiad. Bernadetta managed to take out Cyril, and—”

    And I fought Catherine, but I couldn’t bring myself to deal the final blow, so you did, she doesn’t say—another unnecessary revelation. They both know what happened that night.

    “Oh, so you’re unaware.” Hubert pauses for emphasis. “Catherine and Cyril are alive.”

    When the Battle of Fhirdiad is won and the smoke clears, two bodies are missing: Catherine and Cyril, who escaped the battlefield under the cover of night and the celebrations of the Black Eagle Strike Force. They flee to northern Faerghus and plot their next move. Their fate, however, did not go unnoticed, which they discover when Shamir appears on behalf of Edelgard and Hubert to bring them to Enbarr for questioning. Followed by their pasts, the three set off. Will they complete the trip with ease and even repair the relationships damaged by war and strife—or will their journey be a treacherous one ruined by their individual motives?
