Fire Emblem: Fates - Birthright

Well, that is over. I have completed Fire Emblem: Fates - Birthright, a 3DS game that is worthy of a book, so poignant was the plot and ties forged with the characters. Justice, equality, charity, and peace are the best reasons to draw steel, and then only in defense.
But it is a terrible thing when a double-edged blade cuts your heart, and family, in two.
Yet what if...?

Farewell Corrin & Azura, Silas & Hinoka, Kaze & Oboro, Ryoma & Felicia, Takumi & Mozu, Saizo & Kagero, Hinata & Hana, Subaki & Rinkah, Hayato & Sakura, Kaden, Jakob, Scarlet, Reina, Azama, Orochi, Yukimura, Shura...and the fallen and otherwise Nohrian royals. And Lady Mikoto, whose dream came true.

Let Azura's song ring forth:

"You are the ocean’s gray waves
Destined to seek
Life beyond the shore
Just out of reach

Yet the waters ever change
Flowing like time
The path is yours to climb

In the white light
A hand reaches through
A double-edged blade cuts your heart in two
Waking dreams fade away
Embrace the brand new day

Sing with me a song
Of birthrights and love
The light scatters to the sky above
Dawn breaks through the gloom
White as a bone

Lost in thoughts, all alone."
