    Summary

    Two days after their final high school exam, Prompto and Noct are due to meet in Insomnia's Royal Park. They'd planned to celebrate in all the ways Ignis would disapprove of: sleeping in late, grabbing something to eat at the burger truck in the park, then moving on to the arcade and playing games until they can't anymore.

    Prompto arrives early, not wanting to miss a thing.

    Noct doesn't arrive at all.

    (Based on artworks by Kaciart).

    Summary

    The sun is warm on Ignis’ face as he stands at the window of the hotel room in Lestallum. He stands there so long he can sense the sun drop out of the sky, the shadow of evening drawing the warmth away.

    He hears Gladio preparing for his mercy run: a round-trip to the Crown City for medications that will ease Prompto's pain.

    Gladio comes to stand beside him. It's a few moments before he speaks, and when does his voice is loaded with grief. "I don’t think he’s got more than three days in him."

    They are long past hiding their grief from each other. Ignis doesn't move his face away from the last of the sun's heat, and has to force his voice out of hiding when he says, "I don’t think he has even that."

    (In which Ignis and Gladio once more see a brother to the other side.)

    Summary

    You should never let a family member teach you how to drive, people say. Noct knows that but he still wants his dad to teach him.

    They share a single lesson, and it doesn't go well.

    Summary

    Prompto's spare glasses are just as awful as he remembers. He hadn’t wanted to spend a lot of money on them since he never planned on wearing glasses again once he got used to contacts. That lack of willing shows.

    They’re black and huge and square: heavy plastic frames that help to hide the severity of his prescription. One of the side screws is too loose and the arm flaps shut as he tries to unfold it, and for glasses he didn’t remember ever wearing they feel suspiciously crooked on his face.

    Summary

    “You promised you’d always be at my side,” Noct forces. “This is practically treason.”

    “I wanted to be.” Prompto's laugh lilts. “That scourge, though.”

    “You should be coming home.” It’s hard for Noct to control his breathing. “Fallen soldiers come home.”
