**honourable mentions bc you’ve probably already heard of them: Sia, Debbia Harry/Blondie, Elton John, Freddie Mercury, Mary Lambert, Sam Smith, Troye Sivan, Frank Ocean, Hayley Kiyoko, Tegan and Sara, Todrick Hall, Willow Smith, Adam Lambert, The B-52s,
neil probably gets so overwhelmed with rushes of affection over how cute his bf actually is like when andrew wears neil’s hoodies and his fingertips barely peek out of the sleeves or when they’re on the rooftop and the weather is kinda cold and andrew’s cheeks are flushed and there’s a beanie loosely on his head or when andrew’s hair is sticking out in tufts all over the place in the morning so neil just can’t help but croak out “yes or no?” and rushes to cradle andrew’s face in gentle hands and place butterfly kisses all over his face when andrew gives his consent and andrew lets out an “i hate you” through gritted teeth every time but neil knows he loves it and andrew knows he knows.
Ok the grinch movie is kind of fucked up cuz the grinch apparently was supposed to go to a different place cuz hes not actually a who and he’s not who passing so everyone makes fun of him and that’s basically the whole plot. and also what happened to his actual parents? what is he? is he inclined to be evil or is that a product of his upbringing? his who parents (two women which i thought was rly interesting because gay whos clearly are still prejudiced against nonwhos) to raise him like a who completely disregarded his identity and tried to whowash him… this is such a complex story that leaves so many loose ends. whered he get the dog.
ok first can we talk about how much the boys must love water (Prompto always photographing Noct in front of the water ingame and ofc Noct x fishing)
imagine both of them going camping while in highschool and Prompto’s delighted because it’s the first time he really goes out of the city apart from school excursions and this is a huge deal for Noctis too because his father actually agreed to let him go?? On his own?! (PEACEFUL TIMES)
So they choose to go camping near a river, so that Noctis can fish and Prompto will take so many pics of the scenery, Noct will get mad at him bc the fishes are going away because of him but really he’s just so happy he’s out there with his bestfriend
Prompto splashing water at a napping Noct. Yes this ends up in a terrible waterfight
Prompto staying still in the water and suddenly he feels ?? Small things pecking at his skin ?? And in 30 secs this turns into 20 small fishes eating his dead skin
“Noctis do you think they’re gonna eat my freckles too ??”
Noctis suddenly being very aware of all the freckles that cover his friend’s body
“O-of course not”
MIDNIGHT BATH and there are fireflies all around them
Regretting sleeping under the sky next to the river the following day bc they didnt plan to get THAT MANY bites from mosquitoes (you can bet your ass next time they’ll bring some anti mosquitoes products)
For the time being they’ll sleep in the tent
hiking up the mountain by following the river stream and Prompto litterally c r y i n g when he sees the view from the top and Noctis just hugging him from behind without saying a word
Watching the shooting stars from atop of the mountain while chatting about very personnal stuff
Prompto loving being massaged (unlike Noctis -throwback to Galdin Quay-) so at night in the tent Noctis will give Prompto massages after their long day’s walk and if you dont think Prompto moans and Noctis is hella flustered and stops everything then you’re very wrong
both boys trying to be subtle when they try to close the gap between their sleeping bags at night
ends up with both of them being milimeters apart but not doing the last move
You can bet in the morning they’re snuggled together
Prompto waking up first but being prisoner of the royal arm around his chest and yes he tries to break free (#nohomo) but he’s just ?? HELD EVEN CLOSER ?
And obviously he can’t win bc it turns out all those trainings with Gladio really did good for Noct’s muscles
So you have a sleepy Noctis and an overthinking (and hungry, maybe also wanting to pee) Prompto also very bothered by how cute Noctis is with his bed hair
the astrals shipping the fuck outta those two rn
Eventually Noct wakes up and is face to face to a Prompto who may or may not have been trying to get a taste of Noct’s lips bc anyways Noct was asleep ?? But he woke up just before it happened
They can feel each other’s morning breath on their own lips (which, let’s be honest, smell bad) and woooooo INTENSE STARING
Noct just kinda presses the hand he already had on Prompto’s back and Prompto can feel his heart beating even faster than it already did bc now Noct’s closing his eyes and oh my oH MY IS HE GONNA ???
fall back asleep
That Royal asshole
can you hear this sound yes it’s Prompto’s heart breaking in two
(that’s what you get for trying to take advantage of a sleeping prince, blondie)
Prompto finally goes outside the tent and is met by rain and yeah his day couldn’t have started in a worse way
But the weather’s still very warm so he takes off his clothes except for his briefs and wristband and stands outside
How long he stands there he doesn’t know
He suddenly has a lot on his mind and he’s angry at himself because this week end was supposed to be a special time with his bestfriend why did he have to let his feelings in the way
But next thing he knows Noct’s there too ??
“Couldn’t sleep with the rain. Let’s go”
Prompto doesn’t ask questions and just follows him a bit farther into the woods
That’s when he notices Noctis is also only in his t-shirt and briefs so he offers a silent prayer to Shiva to thank her for his view on the royal ass
And they finally reach a small waterfall with a large pond. It’s very humid and you cant see clearly the other end but Prompto has a feeling there might be more to it. He can hear frogs croaking
Noct just offers him his hand, and although Prompto is intrigued and still a bit sulking, he lets him lead him into the water
When they’re midwaist and Prompto still doesn’t know where this is all leading to, Noctis tells him, a slightly bit anxious “ok, on three we go underwater. Keep your eyes open. Three…”
“but Noct you know that with my eyes-
Doesn’t matter here. Two… ONE !”
Noctis drags him underwater by force with his hand. Prompto, taken aback, forces himself to open his eyes, trusting his bestfriend. And then he sees.
Everything is light. The fishes are luminescent, shiny frogs are passing by him, and he feels safe in this water, almost at… Home. Noctis points him to rarestones that are emetting their own light. He’s never been more amazed. And flowers are growing from the bottom. Actually, they’re growing everywhere they can. Soon missing air, the boys quickly come back to the surface. Back to the dull and misty pond, assaulted by rain.
“Dude what was that ?!!
-Ok, you know the legend of that florist who died at the hand of the bringer of destruction?
-Yes it’s a classic
-So you know her true love left her dead body in a pond. Well now the legend has it that, when it rains, it means people are still mourning her death, and if you come to a pond pure enough with the person you love then
under those circonstances
you can enter the realm of wonders her spirit built. Iris showed me the pond”
The last part had been said way more quickly than everything else. Prompto slowly processed the information
“Oh. I hope you and her will be happy…”
Prompto thought he had seen what was underwater only because he was with Noctis. Not because his feelings were reciprocated.
Noctis, eyes wide and suddenly very unsure, added “but Iris didn’t see what was underwater ! Only I did. Because I was the one she loved. It works only one way. I didn’t tell her I saw it, though. … But you saw the flowers, right ?”
“Yeah… I did !”
Noctis looked at him and couldn’t hide his smile any longer. “So did I.”
Before he let his tears slip out, Prompto jumped at Noctis’ neck and brought him underwater. There, they exchanged a look that meant more than any word could say about their mutual affection, and it was as if the water brought them closer for a kiss only the flowers witnessed.
…. So yeah, Promptis and water are important to me.
