  2. Summary

    Two thousand years ago, Somnus Lucis Caelum cast his Accursed brother into Angelgard. And there the Fallen King would have remained—but Somnus' son chose to bring his uncle back into the light, and grant him the recognition and respect he earned.

    Together with the ruling kings, Ardyn Lucis Caelum watched over Insomnia and the surrounding lands for ages, through wars and conquest and plagues. Each of Somnus' worthy descendants earned his protection and his council, while he waited for the Chosen King to rise and grant him peace. Each ruler knew that their child might need to be sacrificed to save their star, and passed the knowledge on to that child when the time was right.

    Then in M.E. 740, five year-old Noctis Lucis Caelum is named the Chosen King, and Regis keeps silent.

    (Things go downhill from there.)

    Set in a slightly-altered canon where Connor and Hank remain friends and Connor deviates at Jericho, only to be killed by Markus in the church for the good of the revolution.

Connor and Hank fight on the rooftop, Connor-52 spares Hank, and Hank responds by pushing him off the roof, killing him until he resurrects as Connor-53 in the crowd after Markus' peaceful victory.

    Connor-53 chooses not to shoot Markus and successfully escapes his programming, at the cost of losing Amanda and CyberLife.

    Summary

    Winter in Liyue isn’t anything spectacular. The nation lies in the south, far enough that snow falls in the north and only occasionally in the southern harbour. Yet, the mortals celebrate all the same. They bundle up, play in the snow when it’s there, and exchange gifts.

    None of it’s ever been for someone like Xiao. But when Zhongli comes to him, asking for a small dinner with the adepti in Liyue Harbour to celebrate the season, he can’t say no.

    After all, what could go wrong?

    Summary

    She could trace the beginning to then, when the divide between her human and adepti blood manifested for the worse. It was a theme that recurred with every difficulty in Ganyu’s life. But as much as she despised her lack of belonging, she could not fix it. Could not control it.

    But she could lose the weight that mocked her in the mirror, reflected in the eyes of everyone she knew.

    Summary

    [Set after Christmas in Royal]
    [Rating bumped up to mature due to general themes in story]

    Akechi Goro decided to testify on behalf of the thieves. With a good legal team and a defense like 'a crazy god inhabited my mind and I have several ways to prove it, also would you like to meet my father', Akechi manages to wrangle a sentence rooted in rehabilitation and therapy rather than imprisonment.

    Futaba, having spent a long time looking for the culprit responsible for her mother's death, needs answers. Akechi is about to be providing those answers to a therapist, in a room that has CCTV.
    The thieves find out more than they bargained for when she hacks the first session, since apparently their leader had been keeping some secrets of his own.

    AU where the courts take one look at akechi and just chuck him at a therapist, and futaba hacks the cctv. Akira ends up having to explain his no-longer-secret relationship with akechi. Story is told through Akechi's counselling sessions + Akira recounting their relationship to his friends!
    We flip between their conversations and flashbacks of the relationship! Akechi gets Real Therapy (Futaba doesn't hack for long!!)

    Summary

    "You know," Prompto begins, but then shakes his head and says, "Nah, nevermind."

    "What? You can't just say that."

    "I was just thinking . . . I dunno, maybe I've heard one too many fairy tales. But it would be kind of romantic if the two of you eloped, you know? Like, secret wedding, running away together."
