Here’s my thoughts on not only the endings but the routes in general
Spoilers (but I mean why would you read this topic anyways if you don’t want spoilers lol)
In order of play.
Golden deer was the 3rd best path in terms of story. Tbh Nemesis felt so rushed. GD is so disconnected from the main story, it’s like when Edel was revealed as the FE I was like ‘wait who is this?’
It doesn’t have a good story, has mostly filler or if not filler it has garbage rushed storyline.
But characters! You get best house leader Claude and obv best girl but she’s recruitable any path. Worth doing the route solely for Claude but other than that not a very good route
End of story was well done but at the same time felt really really rushed like why am I even fighting nemesis where does he fit in? And the answer is he doesn’t
Silver snow. Garbage story, I thought GD was bad. You have filler of GD up till the very last chapter. And the filler makes less sense! Like why am I recruiting Judith, she’s Claude’s friend not Seteth’s!
You get Seteth in any other route too (save CF) so not worth it for characters either. Just a trrrible route holy… Worst route in terms of characters and in terms of story, the whole route was ‘We need to save Rhea’ but I was like ‘nope I’m only here for Bernie and Flayn, just passing through’
End of the story made no sense and was alright overall but not great
Blue Lions. Has a good story. After finishing the story I gotta say I’m really not a big fan of Dmitri. I appreciate his development and his character is written really really well. But not for me, I don’t like him as a character, I just like his writing. Probably 2nd best story
End of the story is alright.
Crimson Flower has imo the best story. I’m personally on the ‘edelgard was right’ bandwagon compared to the ‘Rhea is right’ bandwagon. But ofc Claude is better than them both.
Either way the chapter has less filler which is imo a better thing, and the story makes logical sense
The end of the story is really well done and nice, feels very concluding and gives me that feeling you get when something ends and it’s bittersweet. None of the other ending gave me that
Overall endings wise
CF, BL, GD, SS
Same order for route wise
Character wise GD, CF, BL, SS
