This was lovely. I actually found this pairing doable and acceptable. I love the support conversation between the two and I can't believe there is one lemon story of these two together. They kinda were a bit off character but it was still an exciting read. Perhaps you should do one for Owain and Severa in the hot springs. I know she says 'no' to mixed bathing but come on! If they're girlfriend and boyfriend or husband and wife, it should be fine for the two to do it.

Wow... this is so long. I don't mean that in a bad way. it's a really good fic! I'm just used to one-shots bring shorter than this, lol. My longest fic is, like, 5,000 words.
But yeah, this is really great. Really, really awesome! They're both in characters, and I like everything about this story, from start to finish. My favorite is definitely the lemon, heh. It's funny when it needs to be and sweet and heartwarming when it needs to be, too. I haven't read too many of your fics (I'll probably read more, cause the ones I read are terrific!), but I think this one is still incredible.

Wow... this is so, so good! I haven't done Lucina and Inigo's supports yet, but this might make me do it in my next playthrough. I guess if anyone can make Inigo change it's her. Really though, great fic!

You know, "Faking a Smile" was (at least I'm pretty sure it was) the first "pure" Lucina x Inigo fic I've read. In a way, I feel like I've come full circle, especially with the strong nod to Nah x Morgan, of which "Of Fools and Flowers" was the first fic of yours I've read. I've read other excellen stories since then, and it's become a most favorite pairing of mine for this game, but I still partially credit that fic for starting that love.
I find it pleasantly amazing that we share similar tastes in pairings in FE:A, at least as far as the second generation goes. With such a wide potential out there, it's surprising to even share even a few with a fellow fan. I just loved all of the moments, both long and brief, about them in this story. The Gerome x Cynthia moment was really sweet, and if I may repeat myself, I adore the Nah x Morgan scene with them cuddling, even after she spends much of it berating the boy. Oh and of course, Severa and Owain sneaking off for some privacy. ;)
Speaking of which, as for our main couple, dear Arceus, where do I begin?! X3 I think you depicted both them excellently. That is to say, they totally and without any oddness, felt in-characters, considering the situation. Inigo is adorable in his awkwardness to muster up the courage to go out and propose to Lucina, especially after the no doubt nerve-wracking experience of asking her parents for her hand. His foppish philanderer mask seems to have come off after their confession, so it makes sense that he'd partially revert to his shy ways. It also makes all the sense in the world to me that Inigo would be hesitant about intimacy. He may flirt and spout the rare off-color remark, but he never takes it farther than bad pick-up lines and asking girls to tea. He seriously would be hesitant and nervous when taking it to the next level with the woman he sincerely loves. I can also easily imagine him trying to make sure Lucina really wants to do this, both out of concern for her, and because of his own bashfulness. I just love that line of his about her "not fighting fair." X3
As for Lucina, it's fitting that she's the assertive one here (she says when it ends, so it makes sense that she also says when it begins, too *Gets whacked*). She has he occasional goofy moments when she's not being serious, but it's not hard to imagine a more playful side, especially with the note about the mutual but good natured teasing among friends and family.
The love scene is just the way I like them, too. It's detailed, sensual, and incredibly romantic without dipping into vulgarities. I just love how caring and concerned Inigo is for Lucina, and how attentive he is to her enjoyment. (Not that I expect he wouldn't be.) The Bathrealm does seems like the ideal place for romantic stories. :)
Sorry Morgan, but even the afterglow wasn't enough to make Lucina forget about your little stunt. She'll be making herself an only child after all. XD
Maybe it's because I'm still on a fangirl high over reading this story, but I don't at all find the second part, or the story as a whole awkward. I'm quite impressed at how well-paced it is. It's quite long for a one-shot, but it didn't drag at all. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this from start to finish, and I don't think it's at all a downgrade from your usual work. There's nothing I have to put up with, dear Skywolf, because I enjoyed this fic as much, and maybe even more so on some levels, than your previous stories.
So yes, if I didn't make it clear enough, I think this fic is just wonderfully written, wonderfully characterized, and an absolute treat to read. Fantastic work! I hope you enjoy your vacation. :)
...Good gods, this has to be one of my longest reviews in a while. ;
