Dimitri's Government Reforms
omegaxis1 posted a topic in Fire Emblem: Three HousesI've never been the biggest fan of Dimitri, and always had issues with him, particularly with his ending. Now, this isn't about whether he dealt with the Agarthans or not, as that's another separate issue, I've always had an annoyance of never understanding the type of reforms he wanted or made. Dimitri's Solo Ending: It's so incredibly vague that it's a wonder what exactly he did. With Edelgard, I knew that it was to abolish the nobility and install a more meritocratic government. With Claude, it was to tear down the borders between races and allow cultural exchange to end racism (even if Claude's story really didn't follow his goal as a theme). This makes Dimitri the big question mark. A lot of people, mostly on reddit, try to praise Dimitri as the best type of reforms, and think that he created democracy. However, I feel that such a thing is impossible, as the ending with Annette makes it clear that this is still a dynasty. And we know that the nobility system still exists. This is cause in all the routes, only one route ever actually works to abolishes nobility as a whole, being Crimson Flower, Edelgard's route. The other routes don't focus on that, nor have the endings that indicate a change that goes with that nature. Hence why I feel it simply can't be a democracy or anything resembling one. So then... what does this participatory government mean? What does it do? Does it even actually give commoners any power at all? I kept wondering. Kept trying to think deeper into it. What exactly was Dimitri seeking to accomplish? In order to better understand, I decided to look at two points in the story where Dimitri ever talks about his own ideals, being after the Miklan incident during Part 1, and the talk with Edelgard near the end of Part 2. I'll break down and talk about the major points Dimitri mentions in the conversation and clarify the meaning behind them and how it connects together to help understand what the reforms he makes. First off, this actually makes it clear that Dimitri is not personally against the concept of Crests or nobility. In fact, he insists that they existed for so long for a reason, and that a world without Crests would lose the "metaphorical blade" that is meant to protect people from threats. What he is against is the "extremes" that people take with Crests, thinking that it's wrong for Gautier to disown Miklan for not bearing a Crest. Keep in mind that disowning kids without Crests is stated by Seteth to be common practice in Faerghus. Dimitri is obviously against that, which is good. While he acknowledges that one's ability is not measured through Crest along, he simply doesn't believe that the nobility system or the Crests should just lose their worth and must still continue to hold value in the world. Why? Well, this goes on to how he explains about House Gautier: This is very interesting. It's a case of how he speaks of the nobility being "granted" special privileges as a result of their service, where House Gautier protects the northern region of Faerghus from Sreng invaders, which is very much a known threat, as stated by Sylvain, and how the Lance of Ruin is an absolute necessity to holding back said invaders. And then comes to Dimitri's personal belief during the time: So he basically wants the nobles, commoners, races, Crests, and Crestless to just all learn to get along. However, he concedes that some people cannot accept this. This overall comes to the case of when he clashes against Edelgard during their talk near the endgame. Most notably is how Dimitri seems to overall perceive Edelgard and what he thinks her goals for the future is, as a result of Edelgard not actually explaining her goals, sadly. While the Edelgard and Dimitri talk have a lot of issues, I do notice some things that Dimitri is trying to say. He's overall speaking his belief that the people are weak and will suffer under Edelgard, due to how she is trying to rely on war to change things, and instead believes that people all have to come together to change. However, this is still the case of how both parties are at a state of mind and belief that neither can accept the other, so they have to destroy one another as a result, which is just as Dimitri mentioned in the Miklan conversation. And this all comes together to what Dimitri said way back then in the trailer: The classic strong vs. weak argument. Now simply adjust this to the nobles and commoners, with the nobles being the strong, and commoners being the weak, then the strong trampling the weak is overall the problem of corrupt nobility. Corrupt nobility have been one of the one of the biggest sources of problems in Fódlan. Them abusing their power is the very thing that caused many people, nobles and commoners alike, to be harmed as a result. So if you take how he views the case of House Gautier, with how they are granted privileges for their service in protecting the land from invaders, or how the Crests are the "metaphorical blade" that protects others from threats, things start to become clear. Dimitri believes that nobles exist, born with Crests or just political power, are born for the purpose to use that very power in the service of the people. The strong should protect the weak. So how does this translate to his government reforms? His ending is that he is known for "listening to the voices of all". Now recall how Dimitri claims Edelgard's war made her "deaf" to the cries of its victims. If that's the case, then commoners being able to be freely participants of the government means that they have a "voice," and thus can be heard to the king and nobles, the ones that hold the power. If the commoners can be heard, then the nobles that have the power to act can surely use their power to help the people. While yes, there are still flaws in this system, where commoners still don't have any actual powers politically, and relies too much on trusting those in power, let's understand that no reformations in the other routes are entirely perfect and each have their own flaws. However, the reforms here very much follows into what Dimitri believes in, in how the weak can speak and come together, and the nobles can try and use their power to help the people when something happens. It'd be a system that can have the potential to help better combat corrupt nobility that might abuse their powers by being able to rely on those that have power to help. And we know that at the very least, there are plenty of nobles in the current generation that genuinely can help the people if any corrupt nobles try to abuse their power. The irony in this is that had Dimitri and Edelgard actually managed to truly work together, had they been actually been able to understand one another, it'd have been a far more powerful system. Combine Edelgard's beliefs where anyone can rise to attain power through their own merit, and Dimitri's beliefs that those with power should protect the weak, and I would daresay that that could possibly be a true path to a democracy. Such a shame that there were just too many circumstances surrounding the story, and a lack of development for the major characters that could have helped bridge the gaps between one another. Which only pushes the tragedy of this war more than previous games. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Now, while I am a personal fan of Edelgard's reformations more, I believe that there is some actual merit behind Dimitri's efforts in his reformations, and I hope this helps better clarify to what I believe Dimitri's reformations are ultimately meant to be about, and thus give anyone that is a fan of Dimitri and Azure Moon a clearer picture in their head as to what Dimitri's reformations are like, which might help better appreciate his route as a result. I know this at least helps me better understand, which I sorely needed. Of course, feel free to disagree with me, since this is just what I believe is the case from analyzing Dimitri's words, but that doesn't mean I'm exactly right, since again, the game does not make it clear what his reforms are meant to entail.
Sain:If you could add a support who would it be between
issysito posted a topic in Fire EmblemIf you could add a support for sain who would it be between? Sain is my 2nd favourite fe7 character after canas and is the reason why I decided to carry on playing the game as he was really ridiculous which i found funny however his supports suck and gets paired endings with his worst options(not even a bromance with Kent!) Anyway, I was wondering if I could add a support and paired ending who would it be between? Personally, if I had the power I would pair him with Florina as I would imagine their supports would be super funny with them being the complete opposite when it comes to interacting with the opposite sex. As for a paired ending either Florina, Isadora or Kent. who would you pair him with if given the choice? i may do more of these on Reddit or on here if it's successful Ps. a 2nd option i would add would be Marcus and Sain.
Tuvy posted a topic in Fire Emblem: Three HousesHow do paired endings work in this game? (non-Byleth) Is it the first A support or top person in their close allies? I'm wondering because if its the latter than some of my pairings are seriously screwed, and I've been hearing mixed things.
Can Fates Work with a Golden Ending?
Jingle Jangle posted a topic in Fire Emblem FatesOne criticisms of Fates that I see frequently is that on Revelation there is a golden ending to the game. And that there shouldn't be one because that invalidates Corrin's choice.I 'm wondering could it have been better implemented in the game. Maybe Corrin could be an ambassador of peace to the continent? Or we are cynical people that want characters to suffer in the end.
Better MU Endings Project!
Wizard posted a topic in Fire Emblem: AwakeningPicture the scene: You've just completed Awakening for the first time, and you're curious about what the developers had to say about your HenryXFeMU pairing. Except it's literally an *insert name here* ending. There is absolutely nothing different between you and your friend's endings, apart from your MU's husband. I want to make better endings for EVERY MU pairing. I've finished a few, which I will show here. I will use the default name for the avatar. (Robin.) RobinXSay'ri Robin and Say'ri returned to Chon'sin together to rebuild the shattered society. Although Robin was her husband, he left the ruling to her but occasionally appeared in the courts to remind the pettier nobles of him and his wife's hard work during the war. They lived our their lives together in prosperity and happiness. RobinXAversa People often questioned Robin's choice of wife, and Aversa sometimes questioned her choice of husband, but they lived happily together as the new rulers of Plegia in Gangrel's place. They had two children: A studious tactician named Morgan, and a beautiful heartthrob called Elise. RobinXFlavia Robin and Flavia were famed for their fighting spirit and love even during the war. They settled down in Regna Ferox as husband and wife, and ruled justly. Basilio would often visit to reminisce about the war and challenge Robin to duels for Flavia's love. RobinXEmmeryn Emmeryn only got a few of her memories back, but she didn't mind. Her and Robin left Ylisse for a different lifestyle in the hopes that they would never have to hear of war again. Future Morgan left after a few years, so he would not meet the new-born present-day Morgan. RobinXWalhart Chrom was stunned when he heard of Walhart and Robin's union, but he managed to stop laughing long enough to say goodbye. They left for Valm, where Walhart turned over a new leaf as a benevolent ruler. RobinXYen'fay After much consideration, Yen'fay decided to stay in Say'ri's time. He tried to brood as little as possible about the alternate future. Robin ruled over Plegia with Yen'fay's help, though he kept to the shadows for quite a while until Morgan was born. RobinXLucina Chrom found Robin and Lucina's a little strange, but he blessed their union anyway. The two of them became the rulers of Plegia. Lucina often wore her mask in public or asked for a hex to hide the Brand of the Exalt on her eye. RobinXAnna Anna realized that she did love Robin more than money, and they ruled over Plegia together. However, she often made shady buisness deals at night to increase the royal treasury. As well as Morgan, she adopted one of the children of another Anna, named Hannah. I am adding in non-canon children as well. If you have any comments or suggestions, don't hesitate to go for it!
