I parted with my brothers...as enemies by aquanut I parted with my brothers...as enemies by aquanut
:bulletblue: tumblr :bulletblue:

They probably hate me, right? I mean, they wouldn't forgive me no matter how much I begged, right? How come I couldn't just tell them... If I could have just been braver... Maybe we wouldn't have had to leave things like that... Why... ...Why......

Nov. 11 - Remembrance Day.

nooooooooooo

Nino's single ending was the best. In fact I may just stop shipping her altogether (for that and... other reasons).

I like Nino's single ending the best also, but I also like Lugh and Raigh being her sons, so... I tend to accept Jaffar/Nino as the most likely pairing according to canon, but I like to think that the cemetery visit happened at some point anyway.

Ironically enough I don’t really ship anything in this series; there may be something about all the death and personal issues going on that makes it hard for me to see fluffy romance in it. Well, except for in the dating sim spinoff. *cough*kidding, I actually do like FE13*cough*

I don't ship for fluff-- all my ships have a bit of darkness and/or turmoil in them along with the good stuff, and that's what I like (even if it means I'm usually seeing a touch of angst in pairings most people take for granted as fluffy!). I mean, with all the death and betrayal and whatnot going on, that's when support and intimacy are the most important, whether that be friendship or romance or both.

I figure Lugh and Raigh have to be born either way, but somehow Nino raising them (for a little while) on her own seems more fitting. But I guess they talk about both their parents dying at the same time, so eh.

Ah yes, excellent point, that is when support and relationships are most important. I suppose I should have mentioned that I... almost exclusively ship for fluff haha *pushes cutesy ship art into corner* But it is good to see shippers willing to deal with the bad along with the good.

Well, her paired endings do mention bounty hunters splitting up her and her husband. There's room to interpret Jaffar's as that she stayed with the kids on her own for a bit before disappearing in search of him, I suppose.

Oh, I forgot about Pent and Louise. They're determinedly fluffy. Fluffy even in the face of death and destruction.

Thanks for your comment, I'm glad it had an effect. Yeah, her backstory is definitely one of the saddest in the game.

Nino's one of my most fave mages in the entire series... her backstory is really tearjerking. Even her  "mother" who she so had put trust on to turned out be one that wished her instant death. Almost shaking how she winded up a long and heartwrenching way to where she is now. 

The colors are really mellow yet warm and the details really set the melancholic mood... Great job!

Nino is definitely one of my favorites as well (I think she's actually my second favorite in FE7? it's hard for me to pick, if it's not her then it's probably Florina). It breaks my heart how badly she wanted to please her "mother", and how she kept hoping for that parental love and approval that Sonia was incapable of giving... I love her optimistic and trusting nature and how she held onto that through it all, and it's tragic how she still probably feels a great deal of regret over her stepbrothers' deaths and longs to have saved those familial bonds she valued so highly.

Thank you, I'm glad you get that sense from the colors; I wanted this to have a melancholy feel, so I'm very happy that comes across!
