“Kurt,” Sebastian whined, reaching for the already pitch black washcloth by his knee. “I need you to lie still, or I’m going to have to do the whole thing over again. Kurt blushed. That actually didn’t sound like a bad thing. - - - - - - fhartz91 or lady–divine really deserves aaaaall the love! Had a hard time deciding which of her amazing stories to choose for this, she has so many ❤ I picked The Last Scion because I absolutely adore the storyline (and the relationship between Kurt and Sebastian melts my heart) and it might not be that well known? If you haven’t had the chance to read it you definitely should check it out.
You know what absolutely, completely breaks my heart in this scene?
Your character, the normally fairly stoic I-will-do-anything-with-no-second-thoughts, emotionally-hardy Warrior of Light, is brought to complete devastation.
Haurchefant was a knight, he lived to protect, and he died protecting you. He was someone who became a very close and dear friend to your character, someone who was basically your character’s last hope after the loss of the Scions, someone who loved your character so much and cheered them on more than anyone… He died protecting the person he loved.
Your character forces themself to smile when Haurchefant requests it. He needed to see the smile of the hero he loved one last time, so he can die with a smile himself.
Rest in peace, Haurchefant. You were the true hero here. You will be sorely missed.
