There are a few Blue Lion supports that I never got to see until now because I didn’t do paralogues during my first playthrough. I just watched Felix and Ashe’s B-support for the first time and oh my God???
I was NOT expecting Felix to be that gentle and understanding to Ashe. It’s kind of refreshing tbh because we all know that Felix actually cares deeply for his friends, but I feel like we rarely see that side of him without the tsundere part. He was so genuine in this support!
I want to talk about one thing Felix said that really struck me, though:
“...knowing someone well does not mean you know how they feel. Whether family or friend. To know someone's sorrow and turn blindly from it...That is the act of a fool.”
This is relevant to SO many things in Felix’s life. His relationship with Rodrigue is probably the most obvious (and intentional, in terms of writing) connection. However, I actually thought this piece of dialogue was interesting because I connected it to his relationship with Dimitri.
Felix explains near the beginning of the game that he and Dimitri used to be best friends. With their former closeness and both their families’ relevance to the Kingdom’s political well-being, of course they know each other well. Indeed, Felix insists that he knows Dimitri “better than almost anyone else.”
But does Felix know how Dimitri feels? He may claim he does, especially pre-time skip. In reality, he doesn’t. He knows that Dimitri is bloodthirsty and miserable, yet he doesn’t truly process the why. He does not understand Dimitri’s mindset--how the grief and trauma morphed into a desire for revenge upheld by twisted morality. Perhaps he does not want to understand it.
The situation is not complex in Felix’s head. The man who used to be his friend has become “a boar,” and that is all.
The final segment of the dialogue--the part about “the act of a fool”--becomes very relevant on non-Azure Moon routes, especially Verdant Wind. After Dimitri dies on this route, a recruited Felix will confess that the extent of Dimitri’s pain was eventually extremely apparent to him, yet he turned away because its severity confused and frightened him.
Felix asks remorsefully, “Could I have saved him? Could I have stopped him?” He expresses guilt over what he perceives as the selfish decision to prioritize his comfort over Dimitri’s suffering. In other words...the decision to know Dimitri’s sorrow, yet turn blindly from it.
I love how the writing in this game transcends the route you choose.
Headcanon: Takumi With a Depressed S/O Would Be Like...
Request: Hi! So, I’m actually not sure if one shot requests are open(I’m on mobile) but if they are am I allowed to request a Takumi x a depressed s/o who tries to hide being depressed? I’m really sorry if it isn’t aloud, but I love your work anyways!
Requested by Anonymous
Word Count: 315
Warnings: Talking about depression (nothing severe or graphic)
A.N.- This is mostly based off of my own experiences and what helps me most like knowing that I’m not alone. I know that everyone’s experiences are not the same but I decided to use my own experiences rather than try and take a stance that I haven’t experienced myself.
When Takumi found out you were depressed, he would be upset with himself for not seeing the signs.
He wouldn't want you to hide anything from him. He would like to know everything, especially if you are having a bad day.
Takumi would take it upon himself to research depression. He would want to learn more to find a way to best help you through your episodes.
Takumi would ask you if he could tell his siblings about your depression. He knows you do your best to keep it a secret, but he is concerned about your well-being and wants you to know that many people care about you.
Takumi knows that he might not always be there for you as a prince, and that thought terrifies him. He is scared that there will be a time when you need him, and he can't be there.
Takumi would be cautious if he checked in with you while you were around other people. Since you hide your depression, he leaves it up to you who you want to tell and who you don't.
Takumi would be glad if you came to him on a bad day. He would be upset that you aren't feeling the best, but he would be grateful that you trust him.
Takumi would take a mental note of your actions and speech patterns so he can start to know when you have an episode to help.
Takumi would also take note of things he does that help you. He remembers what works for you and what doesn't, so he can be better at helping you next time.
Takumi wants to help you with your depression as much as he can. He knows that he can't fix everything himself, but he always wants you to know that he cares about you and he is always there to support you whenever you need him.
From the Tellius series, Prince Kurthnaga is King Dheginsea’s youngest child, after Prince Rajaion and Princess Almedha. They are part of the black dragon laguz tribe, which has been the ruling caste of all the dragon tribes for over 780 years. Of the three siblings, Kurthnaga is the one who becomes the second king of Goldoa, the land of the dragons, as he somehow managed to stay out of the clutches of Mad King Ashnard of Daein, whereas his older siblings… didn’t.
See, way back before Dheginsea became king, he was one of three warriors chosen by Ashera, the goddess of order, to seal Yune, the goddess of chaos. Together, these two goddesses make up the one goddess of creation, Ashunera. She was originally quite happy with her creations, but when they started warring with each other, predominantly due to racism, she reacted by flooding the world.
This left the continent we know as Tellius, and survivors who eventually became known as the laguz (shifters) and beorc (humans). Dheginsea lived through this culling and remembers that Ashunera decided to just BE GONE for the next 1000 years. She would wake when Ashera and Yune became one again, and if her creations were still at war by then, she would destroy them all.
Dheginsea therefore decided that the best thing to do was to live completely separate from from the beorc, you know, instead of just learning to address the existing racism and actively work at becoming a more inclusive society…
Hundreds of years later, Almedha fought with him over this and then ran off to marry the beorc king, Ashnard, who had impressed her by killing his own father and more to become king in the first place. Because, he was like, ‘I don’t care what race you are, I don’t see color. I just care whether you are strong!’
Gee… Like that wasn’t sus at all.
Almedha found out how bad THAT really was when she bore Ashnard a son, but it turned out that birthing a child between a beorc and laguz parent would apparently seal off the laguz parent’s shifter powers. And the resulting child couldn’t shift either. So, sorry, Ashnard, no strong dragon child of your own. So he tossed the kid away, and lost interest in her. She sorta lost her mind over that, to the point she was willing to pretend some other kid was really hers because she couldn’t find Soren again…
Ah, yes, Kurthnaga is Soren’s uncle.
Meanwhile, Rajaion then disappeared… or well, got captured, drugged to the gills, and tortured until he went nuts… and… became Ashnard’s personal mount. Yeah. Anyway.
Despite being a dragon prince, well over a hundred years old and one of the strongest of laguz-kind, Kurthnaga himself appeared small and weak, not only in comparison to his siblings, but also to beorc. Kurthnaga does not carry himself with the pride that seems typical of most dragons in Tellius. Rather, he is usually soft-spoken, and acts kind and courteous to both laguz and beorc alike, not one to flaunt his power and status, or lord over others in general. In fact, he probably didn’t think he’d become king until it was too late to save the rest of his family members from… a great deal of hubris.
Halloween Dheginsea was introduced to Heroes last year, dressed up as a European vampire. Kurthnaga here… gives me Buddhist monk Xuanzang (Journey to the West) vibes. Might be nice if IntSys was starting a bit of a family reunion theme for them?
Halloween Kurthnaga - Autumn Goldoan
Red Dragon Infantry
As with Halloween Robin (M), a fellow focus dragon in this banner, Kurthnaga has high everything but Spd. However, Kurthnaga is infantry (not armored), and red (not colorless). The little prince is also the one available as both a 4 and 5 star summon.
His inheritable weapon is kinda specific, with a lot of effects only activating during enemy-phased combat against a very healthy foe. Ideally, Lantern Breath can grants its wielder a 10 point stat difference in Atk, and some protection against a foe’s Special. He’s bulky, so he can take it.
Ironically, he comes with an Area-of-Effect Special, Growing Light, which is the type of Special damage his weapon cannot guard him against. Super cute and festive animation though.
It’s kinda funny. Even Pulse Tie, the B skill that he comes with, adds another layer to how much he does not want a Special going off in his face. And Dragon Experience just suggests that he should be a Training Tower support unit.
I guess it’s fitting; in some ways, he really takes after his dad’s pacifist stance.
BTW, that he has mastered shifting here means he should already be king:
HP 45 ATK 53 SPD 27 DEF 36 RES 35
Just that? Just the Spd superbane, seriously?
Lantern Breath+ [Mt. 14, Rng. 1] grants (1) Kurthnaga stackable Atk +5, (2) inflicts stackable Atk -5 on his foe, and (3) inflicts a Special cooldown of -1 on said foe per strike, if Kurthnaga fights either during enemy-phased combat, or his foe’s HP ≥ 75% at the start of combat.
Breath weapons allow dragons to calculate damage by the lower of their ranged foe’s Def or Res.
Growing Light [CD: 4] is a pre-combat Area-of-Effect Special that deals damage to his target foe and any other foe unluckily enough to be exactly 2 spaces away from said target. The damage = (Kurthnaga’s Atk - that individual foe’s Def or Res). Which would be whichever defensive stat is lowest due to the dragon’s breath weapon :D Sweet!
Even Pulse Tie 3 [B] inflicts a Special cooldown of +2 (or up to the max count) on the foe with the lowest HP at the start of even turns IF and only if said foe already has their Special ready and their HP > Kurthnaga’s HP.
Dragon Experience 3 [C] grants himself and all dragon allies x2 EXP for as long as he is on the map.
Fodder: BC skills, Special and Weapon. Everything.
Yesterday I played Risiko and it was the most hysterical match I ever had:
II (the red army) was tasked with destroying the purple army and vice versa, meanwhile the black army had to conquer Asia and South America but ended up conquering the whole world, and if that isn't a perfect summary of Fates I don't know what it is;
We added a giant mech for shits and giggles that destroys any country it comes to contact with.
I don't think that was in Fates which is a shame, because every piece of media is automatically improved by a giant mech;
I swear the dices were rigged, the defence dices almost always rolled 6 to the point we tried using different ones;
At one point we rolled all six dices and they all had 5. Seriously, what are the odds?
I ended up taking my last stand in Argentina with a lonely tank while the black army literally conquered the rest of the world;
We even had two different shonen sequences where the tank turned into a flag for absolutely no reason, but I still lost.
Then again, I couldn't use the power of friendship since everyone else was dead, so it's no suprise😂
Anyway, then the giant mech awoke its true power and destroyed the entire world and everyone died, the end
#fire emblem #fire emblem fates #fe14#my rambles #seriously though this was the dumbest risiko match i ever played #we were dying laughing in the end #it's hilarious how the giant mech turned out to be a minor inconvenience at best
