*** The full script for it can be found [[http://fireemblem.wikia.com/wiki/The_Future_Past_3/Script#At_Least_Lucina_Survives here]]. Beware of huge spoilers and massive heartbreak. One can only assume that the writers were very determined to make the player use up an entire box of Kleenex.

One can only assume that the writers were very determined to make the player use up an entire box of Kleenex. This dialogue becomes even worse if [[spoiler: the Avatar is the father of Gerome, Laurent, or Severa, since it means Grima has now forced the Avatar to kill their own child]].


Added DiffLines:

*** This is also true if he's [[spoiler: Brady]]'s father. It's kind of shocking to see somebody that became a priest himself lose faith to the point of cursing the gods for abandoning them.

* The Avatar's S-Support with Cordelia. It's hard to read it in any other way other than Cordelia is just ''settling'' for him because she knows Chrom won't love her back. That is, like Cordelia is willingly entering a, from her end, loveless marriage. She tries to pass the love confession off as a joke ("...Ah, I get it! Trying to get me back? Ha ha. Good one, Avatar!"), and on being given a ring ("Oh, heavens. It's... It's a ring.") even desperately seems to be trying to get out of it ("Why, Avatar... (line break) The thing is...") before she just accepts.

** Then again, neither Cordelia or the Avatar ever mention Chrom at any point in their supports, instead focusing on her SurvivorGuilt. It is, however, possible that Cordelia has developed a low self-esteem since the biggest crush she's ever had ended up going unrequited, so she may have thought that nobody could ever ''possibly'' love her romantically. With this in mind, her trying to pass it off as a joke sounds more like she simply doesn't believe this new person she's fallen in love with actually loves her back. She could simply be nervous and hesitant at first because she's terrified of pursuing a relationship with someone, because she genuinely can't picture herself being happy in love. If one reads it this way, the fact that she ecstatically accepts the Avatar's proposal means she managed to overcome that fear and took the chance at happiness, making it a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.

** One of the subtler, but still incredibly poignant ones, comes in the form of the boss characters first two Future Past maps. Who are they? [[spoiler: The two versions of Morgan, your character's normally eccentric, dorky, and lovable child.]] And they have absolutely no qualms about attacking the kids, who might even be [[spoiler: their siblings or ''parents'' depending on who was married.]] Think about it - Consider how both of them are otherwise. They've been broken ''this'' much, enough for them to ruthlessly serve and slaughter under Grima.

*** To put it into perspective - [[spoiler: This kid]] is so broken and loyal that they're willing to cut down even those close to them. They do ''everything'' because they still see Grima as [[spoiler: the parent they loved so dearly]], and yet despite how hard they try to give the cold shoulder, they just ''can't'' bring themselves to hurt the reminder of the parent they loved. Seeing either of the [[spoiler: Morgans]] so utterly ruthless and different from their usual selves is tragic in itself, but seeing that remnant of them still in there is just heartbreaking.

*** Continuing on, you don't have to take them down. You can get them to retreat by [[spoiler: just positioning your Avatar next to them, and regardless of which one it is, they'll show regret and retreat. The Morgan of your Avatar's gender only shows sadness before warping away, which is sad on its own, but the one you can recruit gets a full conversation. They try as hard as they can to tear down every point or gesture your tactician makes towards them, being as dismissive and cold as possible and reaffirming their faith in Grima, until your character hands them a book - One of their favorite strategy books. Morgan tries to intimidate them by bringing up the possibility of it being used against them, but the Avatar just says they know they won't, because they remind them of "Someone very special to [them].", and then leaves and tells them they're glad they got to talk. Then we get this from Morgan:]]
---> '''[[spoiler:Morgan]]:''' ''.....I already have this book. You gave it to me long ago. The notes and dog-ears are all exactly the same. ...I can't do it. I can't keep fighting. Up until now, my faith was unshakable. I was ready to kill my own friends... But I cannot strike down [[spoiler: the kind and gentle mother/father I once knew...]] Forgive me, Master Grima. I must withdraw... I remain your servant and am ready to accept any punishment you see fit.''

* In Death's Embrace, Brady explains that in his timeline, he often ended up having to kill the people he was trying to heal when they turned into Risen, and tells the others that they just have to remember that, no matter how hard it is to have to kill them, they're already beyond saving. While the notion is horrible in and of itself, it's the fact that Brady puts it so bluntly, without so much as a stutter. Given his status as a huge crybaby, it implies that it happened so often that he's become completely jaded to the act.

* In The Death's Embrace, Brady explains Embrace DLC is much like the Future Past DLC in terms of sadness, being based in a village where every single resident has been murdered and then forced to fight as part of a program to create the perfect assassin in a truly hellish temple by the Berserker/Necromancer Algol. Nearly all of your allies express sympathy and/or disgust to the Risen for what's happened to them, from Panne, who tells them the rest of her species is waiting for them in the afterlife, to Brady, who mentions that in his timeline, he often ended up having to kill sometimes the people person who he was trying to heal would turn into a Risen and he would be forced to kill them instead. Worse still, the Risen are implied to still cling to their human side, such as when they turned into Risen, Gregor mentions that he notices the flicker in their eye when he mentions putting them down like a wounded puppy and tells the others that they just have to remember that, no matter how hard it is to have to "know what comes next", they also ''speak'' when you kill them, they're already beyond saving. While the notion mostly thanks. A downed enemy Hero, though, is horrible in and of itself, it's the fact that Brady puts it so bluntly, without so much as a stutter. Given his status as a huge crybaby, it implies that it happened so often that he's become completely jaded sure to the act.cause a few tears to fall.

** Yarne is less so, because even if you fight the group he is allied with, Yarne's position on the map means that Panne should be able to reach him on turn 1, so it is unlikely he'll even attack you.

* A rather small one, but in Chrom and Vaike's B Support Conversation, Chrom tells Vaike that the two of them should go easy on each other when they're fighting. This is because Lissa was upset after the last fight, so much so that she was crying and saying that they took the sparring way too seriously.

Bear in mind, it is entirely possible to get this after [[WhamEpisode Chapter 9]], [[spoiler:where Chrom and Lissa both watch Emmeryn walk to her death]].
