    This is a patch that vastly expands the amount of same-sex marriages available in all versions of Fire Emblem: Fates, as well as adding new straight ones (especially for the poor Corrinsexuals). Due to the straight supports given to Scarlet, Flora, and Anna, the problem with getting all the child characters as M!Corrin should no longer be an issue.

    Download the latest release here.
    I've started compiling the new support conversations in video format here.

    Changelog

    How Do I Install This?

    Here is the download link. There are three versions contained in the file, a HANS version, an NTR CFW version (the NTR CFW version only has the plugin for the North American Special Edition, NA Birthright, NA Conquest, JP Special Edition, EU Birthright, EU Conquest, and EU Special Edition at this time), and a Luma version. If you don't know what Luma or NTR CFW are chances are you're going to want to use the HANS version.

    HANS

    Go the usual route for installing a HANS romhack. Once you have the extracted romfs you can just paste these folders inside of it. Caveats: Use this extractor or else the Japanese file names will become corrupted, rendering them unusable, and you can skip step 6.

    Someone was kind enough to whip up a video tutorial on how to install the hack via this method, so have a look if you're still confused!


    NTR CFW
    Pretty damn simple, just paste the fefatesSE and plugin folders at the root of the SD card and let NTR CFW do its thing.

    Luma
    If you have Luma installed you proooobably know how to do this.


    Can I Get Kids?

    The short answer is, ish. The game seems hard coded to disallow same-sex couples to have children, and fixing that goes beyond my skillset. However, using this admittedly complicated workaround @DeathChaos25 came up with, you can indeed get kids, as you can see here with my baby Oboro!M!Kana. Alternatively, the hack comes with a "All Paralogues Unlocked" option, which as it sounds unlocks all the paralogues without regard to who is married. Children of same-sex couples won't show up as siblings this way, but if you have the NA Special Edition and access to NTR CFW, you can use Silent Hell's cheat plugin to remedy that!

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Also, if you plan to use any of the Corrinsexual characters (Scarlet, Shura, Flora etc) as a parent to a unit, I'd recommend installing this companion patch as well.

    Ever thought Flora deserved better? This companion patch makes Flora join much earlier in CQ and Rev, perfect if you planned to marry her to another character but didn't want to wait until very late-game.

    And if you're like me and wanted to have the same-gender retainer join your avatar from the very beginning, you can use my Felicia-Jakob swap patch!

    I've gotten shadowbanned so many times the last few days I don't really want to risk it anymore, can the game recognize "strange" pairings and flag you based on it?

    I wouldn't mind trying to help out with supports either.

    Pls make more convos for the males ones, Awakening as well~

    Also, you should add more Forrest options, like make him has S-rank with all males.

    Tried playing this the NTR CFW route, something kinda screwy happened. Looks like my current supports all got shifted around.

    My wife changed from Mozu to Azura, Mozu lost all her supports, everything just kind of shifted around.

    I'm already far enough in my birthright playthrough that I don't really need this patch, I guess, so I'll just hold off until the next ones. Thanks so much for putting this together, really appreciate it!

    I can always add that in later!

    Of course! Any help would be appreciated!

    The game treats same-sex marriages just fine from what I've seen, the kids are the only complication. And I'd love any help I could get on the supports!

    I could do that! As you can see my biases skew towards F/F pairings haha, but if people have any other recommendations for M/M pairings I'd love to hear them.

    I... don't know how to do this.

    Yeah, unfortunately it will screw around with the currents supports some. It would be best to start a new file when you try this!

    Someone mentioned their supports being screwed up by this patch.... Has that been confirmed by anyone else?

    Also, do you have to write these new scenarios yourself? Or does the game just think character A (invalid character) is someone else? For example, if I want to do F Corrin x Oboro, does the game think F Corrin is M Corrin?

    Finally, it seems like this allows incest pairings too...?

    Yeah, this patch will screw up which characters have reached which support with each other on old save files. Yes, I have to write the new supports myself (or someone else has to). And it should only allow "incest" in the sense of the royal siblings x Corrin (and Azura for Hinoka and Camilla) but unless I messed up somewhere it shouldn't have any actual incest.

    i'm new to using fan patches/hacks on the 3ds so sorry if this is a dumb question, but does this work for physical copies of the game or is it just digital.
