    Summary

    When Tenebrae fell at the hands of the Empire seventeen years ago, Prince Noctis was lost to his father and kingdom, and declared dead a short time later. Amidst the rubble of the Oracle's homeland, Chancellor Ardyn Izunia spirited the boy away to Gralea to be remade as a means for his revenge against the gods: A weapon of war, and inheritor to the Starscourge plaguing Eos.

    Now, with King Regis' health rapidly declining, and Emperor Aldercapt on edge in the war against Lucis, Noctis' time to is nigh, and he must make a choice: Remain a hand of the Niflheim Empire, or return to Insomnia and rise as the Chosen King.

    (Sequel to "At His Right Hand.")

    Summary

    Keeping the blade tight against Ignis’s throat, I gesture with my free hand. “This place and all you see beyond? They’re sacred mysteries. You must be worthy of them.”

    “I fail to see how surrendering has anything to do with that.” The way he focuses despite the moonwhite break of light behind his eyes would terrify a lesser man. “Nor is that knife of yours inspiring much reason to do so.”

    * * *

    Ardyn has a plan that may save his and Noctis's lives, but he needs to bring everyone into the fold.

    Summary

    “Look at us,” he says, pulling himself up to sit on the desk. “I’m not even thirty yet. It’s a good thing I’m not supposed to be King long, I wouldn’t even last.”

    “Noct,” Ignis says, reproachful.

    “What? C’mon, Specs. Denying it isn’t going to make it easier.” He leans forward, and reaches out to touch Ignis’s face.

    Ignis holds Noctis’s hand in place. “Are you not angry?”

    Noctis could be. There’s a lot of reasons to rage at the gods. But when he reaches for it, the injustice, the unfairness, there’s nothing there. “Not anymore.”

    Summary

    It has been six years since the Wave destroyed the Starscourge and Ardyn, Somnus, and Aera found a blue-eyed stranger in the wilderness. The future is bright for the House of Lucis Caelum and the House of Nox Fleuret, and the brothers are happy.

    But for Deleantur, it is still hard to settle down when all of his future exists in what was once his past, and the new developments among the kingdoms that might one day be only known as Lucis, are to him the old news of dusty history books and unwanted memories.

    So when a Messenger of the Astrals leads him to the wild, untamed shores of Galahd, Deleantur follows in hopes of something new to entertain himself with for a few months before going back to Somnus and Ardyn.

    He should have known better than to trust that the Astrals didn't have bigger plans in store for him there than that.

    Summary

    Two thousand years ago, Ardyn lost his brother.
    Eighteen years ago, Regis lost his son.
    Somnus doesn't know what he lost, exactly, but he's got his big brother Ardyn and their farm, and that's more than enough.

    Or: Ardyn kidnaps a two year old Noctis, renames him Somnus, and raises him as his baby brother.

    Summary

    Still, the grand culprit, Noctis reminds himself, is not Ardyn.

    It’s the overgrown lizard hiding behind the protection of the Crystal.

    Noctis can’t waste time like this. He has to figure out how to break open that hunk of rock or draw out Bahamut before Niflheim invades Lucis under the guise of a ceasefire. More importantly, he has to devise a way to even kill Bahamut. He has no covenants on his side, not even any Royal Arms. He could, maybe, try to talk Aldercapt into tomb-raiding, but that’s a far-fetched idea at this point. Ardyn, though, could probably require less convincing, but of course this is Ardyn he’s thinking of.

    It's the nth time he's gone back to try and circumvent his prophesized demise; this time, Noctis decides on an unconventional approach. (Past him would have rather died than work with Niflheim, but he knows better now.)

    Summary

    When the Astrals discovered what exactly Ardyn had done in his last encounter with the Chosen King, they were furious. Outraged to the brims of their vile souls. But no matter how pissed off they were with his scam, Ardyn didn’t care: their foul game shouldn’t end with Noctis’ death. And if it meant he had to trap the King inside the ever beautiful dream to keep him alive, he would do it without hesitation. Eternity couldn’t bother the immortal.

    Summary

    Ardyn was there when Regis’ son was born. Unfortunately, he was no longer a glorified Healer and couldn’t save Aulea, but the boy survived and got the name Noctis — Ardyn’s suggestion.
    Ardyn was there when the holy Astrals sent messengers, a whole bunch of them, to claim Noctis their property. They thought they could boss the mere mortals (and one immortal) around as they wished. To even greater distress, they were right, and there was nothing Ardyn or anyone else could do against it. Except for not keeping the boy in the dark about his fate — Ardyn was stubborn enough to ignore Regis’ frets.
    And now, under the yet burning sun, they took everything their lives offered to them, and such time-wasting triviality as official speech shouldn’t stand on their way.

    Summary

    Every new loop Ardyn found himself in he anticipated to see Noctis happy, and sometimes his prayers came true – and then they met. What happened more often, what happened every time, was Noctis’ look in the end. The same look he gave Ardyn before inflicting the final strike, which would cut off this loop and start another.
    Lying on the square near the Citadel, Ardyn knew what he would see if turning to Noctis.
    He really did have a habit of losing things, and now he was about to lose again.

    Summary

    The long night was finally over.

    After the defeat of the Accursed by the hand of the Chosen King, the light has returned to a broken Eos. The Starscourge got wiped out from the face of the earth, purging herds of daemons all across the land.

    His destiny now fulfilled, Noctis was prepared to die and fade into oblivion alongside his bloodline.

    “…and so it started again.”

    Someone decided against it.
    -
    [OR: In which Etro gives the Chosen King a chance to outsmart destiny by interfering with the Astrals’ plans. Hence, Noctis finds himself trapped in a time loop until he sets things right. He however receives unexpected aid in his journey.]

    Summary

    His younger brother stood straight, composed in his blue accented finery every bit the young Lord of Caelum. There was a small downturn to his lips. He was likely judging Ardyn’s simple linen shirt and brown wooly trousers, but Ardyn should hardly look fit for a banquet in the privacy of his study while he was working.

    The moment of judgement passed and Somnus threw a stack of parchment on his desk - the Six be thanked far away from knocking over the remedy he’d been mixing.

    “Never thought I’d see the day you had competition, Brother,” Somnus said tightly.

    -
    Prologue for a larger time travel story, but also just a moment between brothers and can stand alone.

    Summary

    Axis Arra has never wanted anything to do with his father's heritage. He is Galahdian, he is an Arra, and being a refugee and teenage father means he has more than enough things to worry about without adding his unwanted illegitimate heritage the mix.

    Except he's not the unknown (and unwanted) child of just any Lucian noble line, and when he finds a lone, half-starved Lucis Caelum in the wilderness, he finds he cannot look the other way.

    (Aka a look at how Axis Arra becomes Nox's Shield through Axis's perspective, from their first meeting to the day Nox is found by Regis)

    Summary

    Eos is a garden, all lively and beautiful and cultivated by Etro herself. But sometimes it flourishes too much too quickly, and its own flowers suffocate the infant buds, strangle them with coiling vines, and steal all the sun's warmth for themselves.

    So every few eons, the goddess sends her two beloved gardeners to prune and weed her darling Eos, to reap and harvest the world's bounties, so that it may once more grow in beauty.
