For the ask game, 📖 or 💖 for Bernie or Dedue?
Oh you better believe I'm doing both!
📖- AU I’d like to see them in
Bernie: Any AU where she can have therapy and get removed from her abusive fucking parents. I'm only half-kidding. I think she'd love being in a librarian AU, one of the librarians who mostly works behind the scenes making sure everything's properly covered and filed.
Dedue: Strangely, I think I'd really enjoy reading an AU where he's a physical therapist with a gardening hobby. It feels like an area he'd flourish in, helping people recover after serious injuries; he's physically big enough that you'd feel confident he would be able to help with anything and very kind and empathetic to help with the frustration. I could totally see him working with kids.
💖- Happy headcanon
Bernie: One time Count Varley came to the Monastery. He left after a day because the constant looming and glaring coming from the entire student population and most of the staff was too much for him. The final straw was when he went to Seteth to complain and Seteth had a completely straight face but kept making these soft and utterly terrifying growling noises. (Flayn also called him something extremely rude in Nabatean and Seteth almost DIED. Who taught her such obscene language?! It was Rhea.)
Dedue: After the war, Dedue found the Durscur surviors who helped him survive his rescue of Dimitri and acted as a go-between for Duscur and Faergus. Under his watchful eye significant reparations were made, Dimitri made it VERY clear that the murder of his father was carried out by Cornelia and her allies in the Empire to destablise the kingdom and gave a public apology to the new leaders of Duscur, and by the time Dedue eventually passed away from old age he got to see his country flourishing and reborn, their culture revived by hard work and the memories of survivors.
