    I gotta pair everyone in a way that crosses national borders and I'm struggling to think of anyone I could pair corrin with if I made them female

    Because corrin should marry someone who's neutral and if they're a dude then mozu is the he obvious choice, or maybe scarlet

    But lady corrin has uh

    I still have no idea who I'm going to pair my female avatar with.

    Kaze had a weak A-rank after a promising start (nothing kills the mood quicker than "I will swear fealty to you forever, my liege"), Silas is... okay, I guess, Laslow is taken otherwise I'd probably go with him (their B support is really good!), Niles and Jakob are terrible, Benny and Arthur are amusing, but come on, really? and Keaton is a literal garbage person.

    Looks like I'm going to have to fuck my brother, oh well, no other choice really.

    Yeah Silas is super sweet and super boring. But he does say very nice things in my castle.

    Hisame continues to be awesome, pickles for life indeed, dude.

    Also if it wasn't so weird to marry the kids (because it's weirder than in Awakening, come on, you got to see the kids as babies! And they're not from an alternate universe!), some of the male kids have kind of sweet crushes on female Corrin.

    Anyway, if I were to judge my fave characters by who I've leveled up the most (usually a good indication of whose supports I've been most interested in), Hisame and Kiragi would be up there with Takumi which is... interesting.

    I would create a female Corrin and marry Silas just so I could say Sophie was my daughter.

    Plus, the Kana/Sophie sibling support line has to be the most precious thing ever.

    This is the only thing that's pushing me towards Silas right now, I accidentally saw a picture of Sophie and d'awww isn't she adorable and wouldn't she look so nice with my Corrin's hair color?

    Speaking of marriage; do I really have to marry Flora to get all of the kids in Conquest?

    Do I have to?

    Do I?

    You could also wait for the DLC to marry Anna.

    Or marry a kid.

    But otherwise, yes.

    I'd marry Sophie if there was any chance I wouldn't feel like a huge creep afterwards.

    Sophie does work well as Corrin's daughter.

    I should add Dwyer's supports (at least in Birthright) are fucking awesome, he's just been sloooow to level up in my game.

    You know what really gets to me about the kids? I mean, aside from all the obvious?

    Siegbert's supports go on about how he's the crown prince, he's gonna be king, blah blah blah. Only he's about the same age as his uncle Leo. He's not going to have a reign, odds are, because he'll be dead earlier than his father (accounting for twerpiness taking an average of five-to-seven years off the life expectancy.)

    It's not like Lucina, who talks about royal duties because she was the absolute monarch of all that remained of the human race. It's basically a ceremonial title so that, if his dad trips and breaks his neck, the title won't go to Camilla or Leo. Probably.

    Really, Seigbert adds a lot of unnecessary complication to the whole succession situation.

    Almost all the way through Conquest now. Just have to make it through the last chapter.
    I hate infinite reinforcements. I was getting close to the boss, but I forgot to trigger a Dragon Vein, and taking ~20 damage put an end to that. Guess it's finally time to bust out the staves and cheese my way through enemies.

    Playing through birthright the chapters with flora basically went
    *flora does something*
    me - "god dammit flora"
    *flora does something else*
    me - God DAMMIT flora

    She better make it up to me in conque- woops no, she does almost the same exact thing in this story path too. God dammit flora.

    She's like izuna, she shows up in conquest after you upgrade a particular building to max

    In Conquest the earliest Flora can join is Ch. 18 iirc, since that's when you can upgrade the Fire Orb to level 3.

    Regarding Conquest Chapter 12, for people having trouble with it
    I don't think you need to escape with everyone

    You pretty much only need to get one person out; so long as you can beat Ryoma and get one person onto that tile, you win

    There's a later chapter that requires you to get everyone out but it's not for a while

    ....Also make sure that your Avatar has boosted defense and their Dragonstone equipped when they get close to Ryoma, because that person with the stave will target them specifically

    Conquest 12
    If you can get Niles, Kaze or Felicia within range of the pots around Ryoma, you can just break the ones blocking one of the exit tiles and bolt.

    Which is what I'd recommend, since Ryoma will just massacre people given the opportunity.

    Welp I finished Birthright. I had no idea I was so close to the end. Awakening's story definitely felt more epic by comparison.

    Now there is going to be a big fire emblem-shaped hole in my heart (although maybe I'll get a few earlyish nights now).

    The endings were definitely more generic than awakening, too, at least in terms of any marriages - I didn't see any wording that would have been affected by different pairings.

    And so many unanswered questions!

    Revelations goes on sale soon if you haven't played that yet! It should have the "real" ending which will probably be a big more satisfying.

    Yes! I think I'll be playing Revelations.

    I did like the ending from the Hoshidan side, though. Pretty satisfying! Especially the part where
    they all cry and Leo teases them, and where even Takumi cries after thinking of Azura (which was appropriate in my game as I had married them together).

    Got up to the Flora stuff in Birthright and oh hey i see what you're all saying and now I'm probably not gonna marry her to Corrin in my Conquest game.

    Guess Conquest Corrin is gonna have to marry one of the kids now.

    Chapter 12 is beat the boss OR escape. Either will do.

    As a bonus objective fiend I went for the kill but it was... scary at times.

    I think my Birthright run is actually going to end up with my Corrin as a bachelorette!

    The only strong contender (which was still troubling) was Jakob, and he's been promised to Hinoka because I'm a sucker for My Fair Lady.

    I kinda like that she's the most credulous creature to have ever existed though. It's kind of endearing.

    Oh, I was meaning Chapter 10 conquest, not 12. The anguish last night killed my counting ability. I let a teamed Pegasus get near the end and only had one person in range to kill one, so the other reached the green zone.
