    Summary

    Napoleon has had an absurd soulmark since birth. It is faded grey, like all soulmarks are until one’s soulmate speaks the words, and scrawled along the inside of his forearm. He wears a band around the mark, because he does not want anyone to try to say it while he is on the job; luckily, a lot of people cover theirs, so he never stands out. Illya, for example, also wears one, and he has no idea what Illya’s soulmark could be.

    Every person has a soulmark: the words your soulmate will say to you that will make you fall in love with them. Napoleon handles this about as well as you might expect.

    Summary

    Kink meme prompt: One day at a relay or at practice, something goes wrong and Rin gets injured or falls unconscious in the pool. Haru is the first one to dive in after him, even before his own teammates.

     

    'His feet move automatically and suddenly he’s sprinting for the opposite end of the pool, disregarding the judgmental glare from the NO RUNNING ON THE POOL DECK sign right over his head, because Rin might be a pain in the ass but he’s also a teammate and there’s no way in hell Seijuurou’s actually letting anyone drown while he’s in command. His feet slip on the wet floor as he charges towards the glimmer of red drifting further and further down.

    Someone else gets there first.'

    #iggy no #pls stop #why must you hurt my smol sunshine child this way #prompto is a sweet and pure cinnamon roll who deserves only soft and good things

    Actually excellent, nuanced characterization of everyone, but especially Ignis - I know he's the Mom Friend and the voice of reason or whatever, but I think a lot of authors forget/fail to account for the fact that he's still really young himself, and sometimes he fucks up. Ignis's relationships with both Noctis and Gladio are also wonderfully captured here.

    Summary

    Out on a mission, Cor Leonis finds a teenager, lost and sick and partway to becoming an MT. Against the advice of all and sundry, he brings him back to Insomnia. There's not a lot of love lost for MTs in the Citadel, but some of its inhabitants may still be young enough to put aside their prejudices.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Accidentally-a-dad!Cor rescues MT!Prompto and struggles to care for his charge when no one - including Prompto - understands everything that's been done to him and what he needs. Eventually, Ignis, Noctis, and Gladio befriend Prompto and help teach him how to be a human being. Prompto tries so hard but he's *so* lost, and Cor's not much better off. Everyone in this fic is very confused, but doing their very best despite that. Absolutely heartbreaking, with glimpses of hope. Truly epic amounts of hurt/comfort and angst. I particularly like Noctis's characterization here - he's very believable as a rather arrogant and thoughtless teenage boy who's nevertheless well-meaning and fiercely loyal to his few friends.
