Hello! If you're still taking them, would you mind writing "stop putting yourself down, do you realize how perfect you are?" with Ignis, please? Thank you~
A/N: …I couldn’t stop the angst. I tried. This turned into hurt/comfort. Seems I can’t make everything super fluffy no matter how hard I try. I hope you like it Anon-san.
You bolted upright in a panic, as you heard him shout, followed by a loud bang from the other room. You moved quickly to his study, realizing that the shout was not one of pain, but of anger.
“Blasted… bloody… stupid…”
Something shattered against the wall right before you knocked at the door, hearing all movement within stop.
You heard him take a deep breath before he spoke softly.
“…it’s fine… I’m fine…”
You frowned and gently popped open the door only to notice that almost everything on his desk had spilled onto the floor, several items had shattered in their impromptu meeting with the wall, You slowly entered the room, stepping around the broken shards as you heard him breathe heavily.
You frowned as he snapped.
“Darling, please. Talk to me…?”
You watched him press his lips into a firm line. That milky green eye staring at you intently before he huffed, and seemed to try to compose himself.
“Do not attempt to coddle me!”
You snapped your mouth shut in surprise, but stood there quietly. You watched his brows raise a bit before he snarled softly again, his hand reaching out to find the desk behind him, feeling about till he found what he wanted, then turned from you and shattered the item against the wall behind him with a roar of rage.
“I am worthless like this!”
You said not a word, and you kept your distance. His shoulders heaved with his labored breathing, as he started to talk again slowly, his voice breaking.
“What good am I, to my King, if I cannot see my hand in front of my face? What good am I to anyone, if all I am going to be able to do is flounder around in the dark? What good am I, to anyone, other than to be someone that has to depend on others to have my basic needs taken care of? What good am I to you–”
You moved forward, wrapping your arms about him from behind as you pressed your cheek against his back. You felt him take a deep breath as if he was trying to recompose himself, but all he let out was a strangled sob.
“You are good enough. Please, Ignis, stop putting yourself down. Do you not realize how perfect you are?”
You heard him give off a bit of a self depreciating laugh, before he took another breath. You released him, only to turn him about in your arms, and gently place your slightly trembling hands against his cheeks, tilting his head down, so that you could look into his blind eye.
“Ignis, please, listen to me, and let me prove to you that you are still, quite perfect, and not just to me.”
His brows furrowed, his milky eye filled with unshed tears as you gently pet your thumb against his unscarred cheek.
“Your knowledge did not vanish with your sight. You are still the smartest man I know. Right now, yes, you must lean on others, but I know you, I know how strong you are, and I know you will learn how to do things on your own. You are still Ignis Scientia, the man I love and adore above all else, and no matter what scars adorn your face, or if you will never be able to see again, I will still love you till the day I take my last breath…”
You gently moved your hands to the back of his head, feeling him tense up a bit, and you pulled gently, forcing him to bring his face down to your level, and you pressed a gentle kiss to the large scar on the left side of his face, right by his eye.
“You are still perfect, darling. I swear.”
You felt him clench his jaw before a sob ripped from his throat. You moved to wrap your arms about his neck and shoulders as he in turn, wrapped his arms about you and buried his face against your neck.
“I-I’m…sorry, my love, I’m so, so sorry…”
You smiled, and gently ran your fingers through his hair at the back of his head.
“Shh, It’s alright. Everything will be alright. I promise.”
