Make a mark
Rex: you think you can remove the scar?
Skadi: with my runes, I can do a great many things. But I must ask... why remove it? Are these scars not a sign of your growth?
Rex: yeah... I do see most of them in that way but... I want to do something, but this scar is in the way.
The scar in question, was a large slash mark across Rex's back. He acquired it in Babylonia from a Lahmu attack. Of the scars on his body, it was the 3rd most severe, after the lightning strike from Ivan on his chest and the stab wound from Yu on his stomach.
Skadi: what exactly is it that you want to do, that would warrant the removal of this scar?
Rex: that's a bit... personal at the moment...
Skadi: fine... I shall use my runes to remove it, but do you promise to tell me later on?
Skadi: good, then let us begin!
After Skadi removed the scar, Rex asked another servant for help. To do what made him want to remove the scar in the first place.
Beowulf: y'know master, this is pretty complicated. It's going to take a long time...
Rex: that's fine, I'll wait as long as it takes.
Beowulf: alright, if you say so!
After a very long time, it was completed. Rex loved the results, but what mattered the most was what Quetzalcoatl thought of it.
Rex entered their room, to show her what he had done to himself.
Quetz: mi amor! Where have you been!? I was worried!
Rex: sorry about that... but I wanted to surprise you.
Quetz: hmm? With what?
Rex turned around and pull the hoodie and t-shirt off of his back, to show a very large and complex tattoo, of Piedra del Sol on his back. It was colored like it was made of fire, to match with Quetz's noble phantasm.
Quetz: oh! Mi amor! You got a tatoo!?
Rex: si, I wanted to show my love for you with this tatoo of your noble phantasm!
Quetz: mi amor! That's so nice!
Quetz touched Rex's back to admire the work done, this caused Rex to shiver a bit.
Quetz: it's so detailed. No wonder it took you so long.
Rex: si... do you like it?
Quetz: I love it!!!
Quetz: y'know mi amor... seeing your exposed back like that... it's really nice...
Rex, blushing: o-o-oh y-yeah?
Quetz: after I'm finished with you, remind me to find a nice design to match for my own tattoo.
Rex: huh?! You want one too?!
Quetz: of course! It's only fair we match!
A/N: idea I've had for a bit. A tatoo for mi corazon! Plenty of people have that design as a back tatoo anyways, but not a firey version!

You ever think about how FGO just completely butchered Scathach’s character with Scathach-Skadi and made her an unrecognizable mess? Even now I can’t bring myself to think “Yes, that’s Scathach. A different version of Scathach but ultimately the same one at her core,” no, not even close.
Scathach who defied death and brought down literal gods, who believed in humanity’s ability to survive, who mentored some of the greatest heroes of legend.....she’d never have made Lostbelt 2. A population-controlled nightmare where humans are doomed to live short lives? Where she can’t choose humanity over the giants and basically raises humans to be cattle? Where she’s merged with such a wishy-washy goddess who deludes herself into thinking she’s benevolent and just?
But oh, she’s the “better” Scathach because...she’s not a hardass? She’s not stoical? She’s the more marketable “waifu” who totally did nothing wrong and definitely wasn’t cruel and unfair to her “children”?
Not my Shishou.
