Silas/Caeldori PC Support
This was a much lighter, fluffier one, I think. Featuring some decisions I 100% stand behind, such as:
Taking how each of them work in the Mess Hall as canon on their quality of cooking
Sophie bringing her horse with her to a family picnic (I just realized though she may not be in the party when this happens… maybe the picnic is in her Deeprealms? I may just leave her out though ;.;)
Caeldori: Okay, weapons in place, armor cleaned, and- oh! Dad. Hello.
Silas: Hey, Caeldori, out for patrol?
Caeldori: Yes, just making sure our defenses are in place.
Silas: You’re such a hard worker, that’s incredible.
Caeldori: Oh please, this is nothing compared to how hard Father works. If anything, I’m simply trying to catch up.
Silas: Caeldori, you can’t be constantly comparing yourself to your father. You’ve been doing great work, there’s no need to diminish that. Who cares if you’re not perfect, you know?
Caeldori: So you’re saying that I’m still not as good as my father? Ergh… Excuse me, I have to go start patrolling.
Silas: Caeldori I- Blast. I guess I said the wrong thing… maybe a picnic would help? I’ll have to see if Subaki is free…
Silas: This wasn’t bad at all, right?
Subaki: Yes, thank you for the idea, a picnic was just what we needed. If it’s okay though, i must be off. Lady/Lord Corrin probably needs me to give a report on the next battle.
Sophie: Ah, I’m gonna go for a bit too. I made a mess on my way here, and I should try to help clean up. Let’s go Avel! Wait, Avel, wrong way! Augh!!
Silas: Is everything okay?
Caeldori: Father made the food, didn’t he?
Silas: Er, yeah, but it’s all of our favorite dishes. He even made some Nohr foods.
Caeldori: Look at how well done it is though. He’s even good at cooking, and I just feel like I’m still struggling to keep up.
Silas: Caeldori… look, don’t tell your father what I’m about to tell you, but honestly I think your food is better than his.
Caeldori: You don’t need to spare my feelings, Dad. I understand that I’m still behind, I just have that much more to work towards.
Silas: I mean it though. Sometimes I’m worried that your hero worship of your father is affecting how you see yourself.
Caeldori: Dad… you think so?
Silas: Can we just get off the topic? I’m afraid I’ll say something wrong again before long.
Caeldori: Hm, one more question.
Silas: Of course.
Caeldori: How did you first meet Father?
Silas: Oh. Well, I’m a little ashamed to say, but we met on the battlefield… as enemies.
Caeldori: You were fighting against him at the beginning?
Silas: I wouldn’t exactly say my heart was into it at first. After all, I couldn’t fight Corrin easily. But yeah, we began as enemies. Obviously things grew from there.
Caeldori: Hm… two men, in opposition at first… each fighting for a cause they believe in…
Silas: W-well, I just said I wasn’t exactly committed-
Caeldori: As hostilities are settled… hm, this is kind of thrilling, isn’t it?
Silas: What is?
Caeldori: Hehe, your story sounds exactly like a romance novel, don’t you think?
Caeldori: It’s silly, these stories, but yours has the makings of quite a lovely one. Maybe I should consider asking others what they think…
Silas: C-Caeldori wait… don’t go circulating that! Oh jeez… Well, at least she’s in better spirits, right?
Caeldori: You were almost executed for that?
Silas: If Corrin hadn’t stepped in then, I would have been.
Caeldori: So knowing the risks, you still snuck out your dear friend… You’re quite the hero, Dad.
Silas: Oh please, I was just a kid trying to help my best friend.
Caeldori: Perhaps, but it’s still such an admirable goal, don’t you think?
Silas: I guess you’re right.
Silas: What’s on your mind?
Caeldori: Ah, it’s silly.
Silas: Is it more on that novel thing?
Caeldori: No, it’s just… I have two wonderful dads. I feel like sometimes I take that for granted.
Silas: Caeldori, that means a lot to me to hear you say that.
Caeldori: I understand that it was hard to visit all the time we Sophie and I were younger, but I feel truly fortunate that you’re both here to care for us now.
Silas: Of course. Your father and I are always going to be here for you.
Caeldori:I’m sorry for making you worry earlier.
Silas: It’s okay. I understand how important it feels to keep up with Subaki. He inspires me to try harder during practice every day.
Caeldori: Ah, striving to be like him too?
Silas: Not exactly, I think that’s just a part of our relationship. Though, if you must know…
Silas: Well, Subaki looks to us as well for inspiration.
Caeldori: Enough games, Dad.
Silas: I’m serious! He says that it’s truly magnificent to see you work, and that he’s inspired to work twice as hard for our sake.
Silas: If I had to guess, I’d say that’s what makes a good family. One that inspires each other to do better, right?
Caeldori: I think you’re right. Ah…
Silas: Is everything okay?
Caeldori: Yes, just… I love you, Dad. Thank you.
