The one gripe I genuinely have with Conquest's plot is not the contrived plan to expose Garon but the fact that it was needed at all, and it's always about this series' shitty take on forgiving terrible family
For the entire game Garon has committed atrocities and war crimes while acting as evil as humanly possible and has constantly thrown abuse and death threats to his own children, but apparently that wasn't enough for them to stand up to him.
Once they find out he's not the real Garon, however?
That is the last straw, and I hate it.
So what, had that not been the case it would have been fine to keep following him while mildly disobeying behind his back sometimes and pat yourselves on the back?
#fine#fire emblem #fire emblem fates #fire emblem fates conquest #fe14#garon#my rambles #snow if you're reading this please don't eat your 3ds #this series and bad family i swear #and even then it's less of a criticism to fates and more to this series as a whole since they've ALWAYS done this #i would have been with any other excuse really #like he's invincible unless he's on his true form #granted it wouldn't have made sense in birthright then but still #i really like the GGG mod's take that it was actually the real garon getting corrupted by anankos #and corrin was trying to get him to the throne to restore his mind #anything but THIS
Beau loves splashing his wings in the water and of course doesn't even think about his pale, easily burnt skin before flying out towards the ocean once he and William visit. he settles himself on the shore, a little up to his knees so he can just splash his large white and blue wings around. joyful laughs, chirps, and squawks bubbling out between his light pink lips, uncaring that his clothes are all soaked now.
meanwhile William is fumbling a big umbrella and three bottles of sunscreen from his car, shouting out, "Beau, wait! We haven't put on the sunscreen yet! You're gonna burn up in seconds-!" barely remembers to lock the car before rushing towards his boyfriend that's sitting there splashing without a care.
another perk of Beau's mimicking ability is when William introduces him to the internet, specifically youtube, vine, tiktok, etc now he can perfectly copy memes. one day Mark gets thrown from an enemy's punch and when he hits the tree Beau was perched on, Beau just parrots out the roblox "oof!" sound while Mark doesn't know whether to laugh, cry, or both.
I have two comissions on the way they'll show the blue of Beau's wings better but I tried my best to show them so people can doodle him if they choose to ^^ its just like the inside colors of cockatoo wings and tailfeathers but blue instead of yellow
“The reason why Amber was so mad at Mark despite having an inkling of knowing that he was a superhero was because he should’ve had more faith in her!”
That should’ve been foreshadowed more clearly instead of in such a vague way that one has to grasp at straws in order to make sense of the writing in making this aboutface turn with a character I’ve previously liked (partly because she’s black) make sense. I cannot for the life of me remember any hints that she had a hunch of his secret which would also make her anger seem more justified too regardless because I do not need the woman to coddle their man in a relationship. Plus, is she even really thinking that? Or rather is she saying, “you never have time for me”, which is the most literal interpretation of her lines to Mark and further context outside and within those scenes makes that interpretation stronger. Instead of behaving so passive aggressively in hindsight with her boyfriend then maybe, just maybe she could’ve been more clear about wanting Mark to be more honest with her, been nicer about it and then explode or tolerate his secretiveness in a more entertaining way like perhaps showing us her putting together the clues...or been honest with herself and realise what she has with Mark doesn’t work a lot sooner.
#anti amber bennett #invincible #miss me with that false feminism bullshit she wasn’t written well #I deal enough with that behaviour of ‘they was being a bad boyfriend/girlfriend because they weren’t catering to my fave’s every need’ in #my primary fandom #Hopefully they’ll listen to the criticism and fix her and also keep the traits that made me like her initially because she has A LOT of #potential as a character imo her being a feminist is NOT a good reason to dislike her that’s a legitimate claim people use against her #like no I’m not a feminist but there are plenty of them I admire #**not even every need...every WHIM #amber bennett

Barefooted steps were featherlight so as to avoid those devilish, foxy ears from catching the fugitive in the act. Volt, his back turned to Char, would find himself suddenly temporarily blinded by two palms covering his eyes and a nose nudging into the back of a fluffy ear affectionately.
"Guess who~." Breathed out in a mere whisper, the mischievous grin behind it practically tangible. It was stupid, yes. Comically idiotic, and downright adorably domestic. The hedgehog had woken in a good mood today, so a little playfulness was in order. A peck was given to the softly furred shell of an ear before he trailed a line of kisses downward, along a cheek, neck, and the back of a shoulder. "You get three tries~."
His tail swayed lazily behind him, a taletell sign that he was indeed in a pleasant mood today, despite still being a tad tired from their more frequent activities lately. The healing bites that decorated his collar spoke of more than just a few nights of adventurous activities, as well as Char settling in to this new role of 'feeding' his beloved when he needed it most in the form of his own lifes-blood.
In all honesty, he wanted to broach the subject of a hunt today with his boyfriend. But not until after a little teasing flirtation first~.
One thing that Volt never mentioned was that he could always tell when his partner was nearby. His way of sensing another’s energy usually gave him an edge in feeling when someone was approaching him and who it was, but he never made any outward distinction that he noticed. Which had allowed Char tk close the space between him as he had and a chuckle rose from the hybrid’s lips as his eyes were covered.
Anyone else to attempt such a feat would likely had ended up with hardened quills against their body.
Although that hadn’t stopped the shiver along his spine when breath cascaded over his sensitive ear. The red tipped appendage flicking on its own accord against Char’s lip before raising back up. It flicked again at the kiss and Volt again was trying to suppress the shudder, mostly because he didn’t want to spoil what might have been planned by ruin the game.
“Hmmmm.” One hand raised in order to carefully move the fingers covering his eyes, peeking a glance behind him in a playful manner. “Could it be my soulmate coming to see what I’m working on?”
In his lap was a project, one that he had been working on for quite a bit of time between errands and taking care of the family. It was a simple leather project, but the details were what kept him busy. The intricate patterns needing to be tapped into the slightly damp hide carefully to make sure they didn’t smudge. “Did you need something love? Or did you just want to keep me company?”
