Paradise: A Byhardt Zine

About

Paradise is a fanzine dedicated to the relationship of Byleth Eisner and Linhardt von Hevring.

This zine will focus on the pairing, in both platonic and romantic scenarios. From the academy days to after the war, to even a handful of AUs, such as childhood friends or even student Byleth, this zine is aiming to present the pair in a variety of fun and wondrous ways.

The zine’s purpose is to showcase the love and connection the pair share with one another, and that though life may be tough, there will always be time to catch a quick nap under a shady tree or two.

The zine will be in B5 format and be in full color. Paradise will be available in physical (perfect bound) and digital formats.

Mod Team

Misery - Head Mod

Hey, Misery here! I’m currently a mod for Fodlan 2X77, Goddess Messenger, Heritors of Arcadia: Celicalm Zine, Unbroken Bonds: ShinDeku Zine, and Trends: Sasusaku Fashion Zine, and have been a contributor for a handful more!

I am thrilled to help Paradise come to fruition! Byhardt holds a very special place in my heart, and I cannot wait to get this project up and running!

Abby - Artist Mod

Hi, I'm Abby! You may know me as a mod for Angel of the Battlefield and Of Mews and Men or just around as a contributor in several zines.

I love Byhardt because it is one of the few cases of canon LGBT representation in Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

Mai - Merch Mod

Hi, I’m Mai! I’m a college student who has her own online shop so I have plenty of experience with merch.

I’m so excited to be helping out with this zine since Byleth and Linhardt are just so compatible and precious.

Berry - Writer Mod

Hi, I'm Berry! This is my first time as a fanzine mod, but I've previously been the editor of a small literary zine, and I'm a contributor for various other FE3H zines.

Linhardt was my first S-support in the game, and Byhardt has stayed one of my favourite ships ever since that first playthrough!

North - Graphics Mod

Hi I'm North! I'm a professional graphic designer who loves FE3H and who also loves Linhardt.

Byhardt is one of my favourite ships in the game and I can't wait to help bring this project to life.

Taro - Finance Mod

Hi, I'm Taro! I do enjoy Linhardt's support with Byleth a lot and I look forward to helping this zine become a reality.

Britt - Social Mod

Hi, I'm Britt! Event planner by day, writer, editor and crafter by all other times! I'm a mod on the Mists of Fodlan zine. I'm a big fan of spreadsheets, sometimes I'm funny, AND I love Linhardt and Ashe (the best boys)!

I've made a ton of friends through FE3H, especially via Byhardt, so I'm excited to give them the love they deserve!

Maxx - Shipping Mod

Hi, I’m Maxx! You may know me as a mod for Fodlan 2X77, Of Mews and Men, or I am Ferdinand von Aegir.

I’m taking my IRL mailroom experience to my position as shipping mod for Paradise.
