This idea has been floating around in my mind for a bit, and I want to give the concept a shot. Basically, I have to somehow come up with a single story that can fuse Crimson Flower, Azure Moon, Verdant Wind, and Silver essay writer Snow into one and not only make sense but also respect the themes of the game. This is one hell of a task, but I’m willing to rise up to the occassion and show it to all 3 people who read my posts.
Some rough pointers:
-Male and female Byleth coexist in this timeline. This causes some problems such as who gets the name Byleth (and what the other would be called, feel free to offer ideas), what house they each choose, and who gets the Crest of Flames and a anime girl Morgana inside their head. I would go about it like this: they are born twins, one inheriting the Crest of Seiros from Jeralt and the other is born without a crest. On top of that, the one born crestless is in risk of dying, so Rhea decides to give them the Crest of Flames.
-Divine Pulse is removed, I’m not gonna even bother trying to translate this into gameplay. Divine Pulse is there for the sake of the player and contributes next to nothing to the story, so it can be discarded.
-Each Byleth will have a different personality and make different choices. Yes, they will no longer be cardboard cutouts of a human being.
-The story must hit important plot points such as Edelgard’s past and how it influenced her to start the war, Dimitri’s amazing character arc, Claude’s efforts to uncover the truth, and make Rhea a more active character.
-This is not a golden route. Three Houses is about perspective, and making what would basically be Fire Emblem Fates Revelation all over again would cheapen all the other routes.
