    Summary

    Noctis shivers. "Why am I back?"

    "Because," Gladio says, "the First King is gone."

    There are many things he doesn't understand, even after his years in the Crystal, and he knows now that he will never understand some of them, not in this life. He thinks about Luna, about Gentiana, about the Kings, about his father. He thinks of old stone ruins filled with water, smoking mountain peaks, abandoned tombs and glowing blue butterflies and castles in the Tenebraean sky. Maybe it doesn't matter.

    Summary

    The ring fell to the floor between them. Noct looked down, but didn't move to pick it up. He looked almost afraid to touch it. They stood frozen for a long moment.

    Then Gladio said, "Fine." He bent.

    Noct's face drained of all color. "Gladio, wait," he said, and reached out a moment too late.

    Gladio put on the ring.

    Summary

    At the start of junior year, Prompto catches some dumb bug that's going around school.

    Half the class has been out with it already, a revolving door of kids who are gone for a week and then come back bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. Even Noct gets knocked out for a day or two, sending Prompto texts about how bored he is during class time. Prompto shoots back: "it's like your dream vacation dude. you get to nap all day. :p"

    He thinks he's going to get off free and clear, right up until the morning he wakes up with his head pounding, feeling like someone took a cheese grater to his throat.

    He gropes for the phone on his bedside table – taps out a message to Noct: "you got me sick, you jerk."

    Summary

    It's not like they've never left their chocobos behind in favor of having a night in a real, honest-to-gods bed before.

    It's just that, well. Prompto's chocobo's been pretty touchy-feely lately. Lots of nuzzling, lots of preening his hair. That one day he fell asleep curled up against her side, he woke up in the middle of the night to find she'd tucked a wing over him, warm and downy-soft. It had been kind of nice, actually. Musty and decidedly bird-scented, but nice.

    Summary

    It's captivating. Prompto's probably going to have thirty-eight photos of it for them to relive the experience, in vivid detail, later on.

    But Prompto's not taking pictures anymore, Noct realizes. The camera's stopped.

    And when Noctis looks over to see what the matter is, Prompto's just staring through the view-finder, head angled up. He's gone absolutely sheet-white – looks like he might pass out. He says, "Noct," very softly, like it's a plea.

    Then the world explodes, and something slams into Noctis with the force of a subway train, and everything goes dark.
