FFXV x KH Headcanons That I Have But Probably Won’t Doodle Part 8

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Part 6 | Part 7

There will be no angst in this post because it it Prompto’s birthday and he deserves every happiness today and all days but especially today

  • Gonna talk about some Status Effect ideas today:
    • Toad
      • So Prompto gets turned into a frog, and the curse doesn’t wear off even after the daemon who’d inflicted it has been slain… and the party has run out of remedies and they’re too dirt poor to buy new supplies
        • Cue Sora, Friend of Actual Fairy Tale Princesses, suggesting that Noctis try to give him a kiss.
          • Sora: “IT WORKED FOR MY FRIEND TIANA, OK”
            • Also Sora: “Stop looking at me like that!!! I’m telling you, it worked!!”
            • Also Sora: “…Eventually.”
          • They’re getting close to the hour mark since Prompto was cursed and the boys are getting a little Impatient. Prom’s obviously not too happy either.
            • FREE THE BOY
          • Sora: “Noct.”
            • Noctis: “I’m not kissing a frog, Sora.”
            • Sora: “That’s your best friend, Noctis. He might be a frog FOREVER because you are a COWARD
            • Noctis:
            • Noctis: “I’m not doing it in front of Gladio”
              • Five minutes later:
                • Sora: “Hey, Gladio, can you get something for me? It’s over there. Far away. Yeah, bring Specs with ya. Go for it. Byeeeee.”
                • Sora: “OKAY HE’S GONE DO IT”
          • Noctis does it
            • It doesn’t work
              • Sora: “Well now I’m just disillusioned. There’s no magic in this world.”
            • GLADIO AND IGNIS SAW EVERYTHING AND VIDEO EVIDENCE OF NOCTIS KISSING A FROG NOW EXISTS
            • The spell wears off at random while the party is in the middle of taking on a hunt so they can actually afford to buy a remedy for froggy Prom
    • Petrification
      • So the boys are in a cave somewhere fighting Mindflayers and Coeurls– a lot of them
        • Sora is getting pretty overwhelmed by a bunch of daemons attacking him at once– too busy to notice the Mindflayer about to cast a spell on him from behind
        • Gladio: “MOVE IT, KID!”
          • Gladio grabs Sora by the wrist and yanks him up and out of the way– lifts the spiky boy right off his feet
          • The Mindflayer’s spell hits Gladio instead
            • Surprise, kids. It’s Petrification!
              • GLADIO TURNS TO STONE WITH HIS HAND WRAPPED AROUND SORA’S WRIST
                • Our little dorkupine boy is now dangling by the wrist a foot in the air with a bunch of daemons swarming around while Gladio’s stone statue body holds him up
                • Cue the other boys having to step up and protect Sora, who can’t really defend himself in his position
                • Prompto tries to toss Sora a remedy, but a Coeurl gets in the way at the exact wrong moment and it smashes on the floor
                • Sora: “WHAT DID I DO TO DESERVE THIS I AM A GOOD PERSON”
                • Prompto takes a photo before the Gold Needle is distributed and Sora is freed with a Very Sore wrist from the grip of a Very Confused Gladio
    • Confusion
      • Tbh sometimes the boys think Sora is confused at times when he’s not
        • This kid can talk to animals
          • Like straight up he can.
          • Like Prompto and Noctis are watching him talk to a chocobo at length about which accessories look best on its saddle and they’re wondering if they need to Intervene
            • They may slip a remedy in Sora’s smoothie at Wiz’s cafe
              • After lunch, they follow Sora back to the chocobo and… Nope. It’s not confusion. Sora’s just an Animal Whisperer
                • Sora: “Chichiri doesn’t like to eat that brand of feed because he says it dulls the color of his feathers”
                • Noctis:
                • Noctis: “Did he now”
        • The boys are on a mission to find a dog tag and they find it… but it’s wedged in a very small crevice between two rocks. There’s no way any of them can reach it
          • Sora: “I can probably reach it if I turn into a toy”
            • Gladio: “Sora, what, literally, the fuck”
            • Ignis: “Perhaps you’d like to lie down for a moment”
              • CUE SORA SHRINKING DOWN SO HE CAN GET THE DOG TAG
                • THE BOYS ARE LITERALLY SCREECHING AS HE DOES THIS
                  • I just love the idea of Sora having every single one of his abilities at his disposal and USING THEM

Iconic KH hand-holding (and not-quite-hand-holding-but-still-just-as-iconic) moments that I can remember off the top of my head:

  • Riku offering his hand to Sora and Sora reaching for it

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5

(I’m going to cover Iris and Aranea in this post. Will get around to Cindy and Luna soon!)

 Iris

  • Their first interaction:
    • Iris: *Calls while Gladio is replacing one of the Regalia’s tires*
    • Sora: “Gladio, it’s Iris”
    • Gladio: “Answer for me, would ya? Tell her we’ll be in Lestallum tomorrow”
    • Sora: “Okay.” *Answers phone and delivers Gladio’s message to Iris*
    • Also Sora: *Ends up talking to Iris for an hour about fun things to do in Lestallum*
    • Gladio: *Big brother instincts conflicting with his understanding that Iris has been though a lot and it helps to have someone closer to her age to talk to*
  • Sora and Iris hit it off!!
    • Fast friends!!
      • Go shopping together!
      • People-watch together!
      • Make moogle plushies together!
        • Sora’s sucks
    • When Iris wants to come with them on a hunt, Sora is the only one who has no problem with it
      • He trusts that she can handle herself, and knows that she’ll be totally safe with them
      • This pisses Gladio off
    • She reminds him of Kairi. So spirited and independent and spunky! :) 
  • When Iris goes to get her Amicitia family tattoo, Sora tags along with Gladio
    • The conversation goes:
      • Gladio: “Don’t you have something better to do?”
      • Sora: “Uh NO. Iris needs emotional support”
      • Gladio: “Isn’t that why I’M going????”
      • Sora: “You’re an emotional-support pool floaty. I’m an emotional-support raft stocked with a week’s worth of provisions”
      • Iris: “Sora was great when I needed someone to vent to after Kravyn broke up with me”
      • Gladio: “AFTER WHO DID WHAT”
    • Sora goes into that parlor fully expecting to be there if Iris wants someone to hold her hand
      • But he ends up trying to hold HER hand because WHOA WHY IS THERE BLOOD I DIDN’T KNOW THERE WOULD BE BLOOD
        • (Sora is moderately hemophobic)
        • Gladio slaps his hand away when Sora reaches for Iris’s hand. The tattoo artist is working on the shoulder attached to that hand
          • Gladio: “Watch it, kid! Let the artist do his work!”
          • Also Gladio: *Lets Sora hold his hand instead*
            • (Also Gladio: “Don’t tell the guys about this, or I’ll punch you so hard you’ll travel through dimensions and end up back on your home planet”
            • Sora: “Uh ok”)

Aranea

    • Her first interaction with Sora:
      • She literally drops from the sky and lands on Sora’s face
        • Yes he is more or less incapacitated during the group’s first encounter with her
          • But he wakes up near end of the fight and uses Graviga to yank her out of the sky and slam her face-first against the ground
            • FUCKING RUTHLESS BOY
            • She manages to get away but her nose is broken as shit
      • Ignis examines him at camp that night and discovers that Sora has a mild concussion and a broken nose
        • The first thing these two do when they meet each other is break each other’s noses
          • This is a WEIRD RELATIONSHIP
    • When she joins the group during Gladio’s temporary absence:
      • SORA IS PETTY AF
        • THIS KID CAN BE SO RUDE WHEN HE WANTS TO BE OKAY
          • Sora: *Upon seeing something cool in the tomb* “Whoaaaa… what do you think that is?”
          • Aranea: “Well, it’s—”
          • Sora: “I was asking the people whose opinions actually matter to me thank you bye you can literally leave”
        • Sora falls in battle. Aranea slaps him across the face to snap him out of it. Sora casts Aeroga and sends her flying across the room
          • They are like cats and dogs okay these two do not get along at first
      • After they go their separate ways, Sora is still pissy but unsure how to feel about her. She helped them, yeah, but she works for the bad guys. If she was really so good, why would she be helping them?
        • Sora more or less ignores her whenever she jumps into the party during random encounters 
          • Beats the sass, I guess
            • This boy is confused and this lady tried to hurt his friends. He doesn’t know what to make of her
    • During Chapter 12:
      • Sora is a complete emotional wreck. Prompto’s in trouble and everything is just so awful. He finds a spot on a hill near a field of sylleblossoms, away from the guys
        • Areana finds him and walks over. She keeps her distance, but she talks to him
          • Sora is resistant at first.
            • But he’s so upset… he can’t help it…
              • He bursts into tears. Aranea doesn’t say a word. Just stays with him as he cries
                • When he’s done, she says, “There. You’ve had your time to cry about everything that’s gone wrong. Now it’s time to get the hell up and do something about it.”
                  • Sora: “Aranea… I-I… you…”
                  • Aranea: “Save it, kid. Don’t you have somewhere to be right now?”
                    • Things are different between them after that
    • During the long night
      • Sora names his chocobo Highwind and Aranea WILL NOT LET HIM HEAR THE END OF IT
        • Sora: “Gimme a break, Ara, it’s what my best friend wanted to name a raft I built when I was like 12 that we wanted to sail to another world”
        • Areanea: “That you wanted to what”
      • The two of them team up on hunts and they’re actually a pretty damned good duo
        • Aranea striking from above to catch an enemy by surprise, pinning them in place while Sora rushes up behind and delivers the killing blow
        • Sora using Aeroga for the forces of good this time by launching Aranea even faster around the battlefield than she could go on her own
        • They’re fucking devastating okay
          • RIP anyone unlucky enough to face them at the same time

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Part 6

Let’s talk about Sora’s Heart Hotel™

  • A lot of you guys have been asking and I haven’t talked a whole lot about it because I honestly didn’t have it figured out yet
    • Who am I kidding? I still don’t
      • Tbh I headcanon (hope????) that the people residing in Sora’s heart will be freed and become their own permanent selves in KH3. So my original intentions for the FFXV x KH AU didn’t even involve those guys.
        • BUT
          • Let’s pretend for the sake of this post that Sora’s heart hotel is still Open For Business
            • An AU of an AU. We’re in deep, folks
  • I don’t picture the people inside of Sora’s heart constantly interacting with him. They’re not like a consciousness in his head that he can’t switch off. Most of the time, it’s honestly easy to forget that they’re there; he just can’t feel their presence normally.
    • They’re more or less resting inside his heart, and they only react to things that really affect them. And even then, Sora doesn’t usually hear their voices. He just feels what they feel
      • Like being wistful when he sees a sunset paint the sky red
      • Like having the BIGGEST SWEET TOOTH when it comes to ice cream– doesn’t matter the flavor
      • Like getting more irritable than he probably should when someone at the Chocobo Moogle Carnival asks where his parents are when he tries to go in
        • Sora: “I’m 18 years old. I don’t need a grown-up. I AM A GROWN-UP.”
        • Prompto: “Son. You need to chill.”
      • Like feeling really, really bad when he’s talking to someone he’s spoken with a couple times before and realizing that he doesn’t remember their name????
      • Like laughing uncontrollably during the long night when he looks in the mirror and sees that one of his eyes is yellow
        • He really can’t stop laughing even though it’s the last thing he wants to do
  • That said. Let’s talk about status effects
    • Weird things happen when Sora’s consciousness is altered. When his grip on reality is loosened, it’s a bit… easier… for someone inside his heart to take the wheel
      • The Keyblade will change form depending on who’s driving
      • Ventus taking over when Sora gets KO’d in battle and the Chocobros are way too overwhelmed to help him. It’s obvious that something’s different– Sora never holds the Keyblade that way.
      • Sora HATES being inflicted with Confusion
        • A party of five in Sora’s head (including himself) means that this status ailment hits him HARD. Smelling salts don’t work– and half the time, the boys aren’t able to pin Sora down to use them anyway
        • Because Sora’s mind becomes a jumbled mess of four different voices screaming at him all at once
        • Because Sora starts having slurred, frantic conversations with himself and it’s really scary to watch
        • Because Sora is INSANELY POWERFUL and is super dangerous when he can’t discern friend from foe
          • He almost kills Prompto and he still has nightmares about it
  • Sora goes out of his way to do nice things for his Heart Hotel pals
    • Eating their favorite foods! 
      • (He hated mashed potatoes before the Heartless invaded the island. Now he loves them. Someone moved in and clearly switched some things around.)
    • Skateboarding!
      • Giving Ignis an ulcer while trying to teach Noctis and Prompto
        • Ignis: “It’s only a matter of time before–”
        • Noctis: *Busts his ass and sprains his ankle*
        • Ignis: “I told y–”
        • Sora, Noctis, & Prompto: “DON’T”
        • Noct sitting on the skateboard and Sora pulling him around so he doesn’t have to walk on his injured leg
    • Seashell collecting at Galdin Quay!
      • All the boys pitching in 
        • Sora gets!! So excited!! When they find really pretty ones!!
        • Iris using the shells to make jewelry!
          • I’m such a slut for friendship bracelets. Now they have seashell charms!
    • Sparring
      • Sora can’t decide if this is for Ven or Vanitas
        • Probably both
        • Sora isn’t usually a sore loser but he gets. So. Angry. When he loses.
          • Vanitas you actual infant let’s try to lose with a little dignity okay
            • Vanitas: “There are zero (0) ways to lose with dignity”

This is getting a little long. There’s more under the cut (Most of it dealing with the Starscouge.)

FFXV x KH Headcanons That I Have But Probably Won’t Doodle Part 5

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4

  • Sora at the Assassin’s Festival
    • Sora has obviously never heard of the Assassin’s Creed series, but Noctis and Prompto are so excited that he!! gets!! excited!! too!!
    • Sora’s DELIGHTED by what a fanboy Noct is. He loves seeing Noct so unabashedly happy and wants to keep the hype going for as long as possible.
      • Noct: “Sora! OH MY GOD!!! That’s a replica of the apple of Eden!!! It looks just like from the games!!!
      • Sora: *Having no goddamned clue what an apple of Eden is* “FUCKIN SICK BRO!!! THEN WE BETTER GO TAKE A PICTURE OF YOU HOLDING IT!!”
    • Sora is completely comfortable in the Medjay robes, but he feels really bad that Ignis isn’t!
      • Trying to be as inconspicuous about it as possible, Sora finds a shawl at one of the costume kiosks and drapes it around Ignis’s shoulders.
        • He plays it off like he wants Ignis’s costume to be more elaborate than anyone else’s to justify why only Ignis gets a cape. So if any of the other boys ask, that’s why!! >:(
          • Sora: “If Specs is going to be a dork for a night, he’s going to DORK BIG or DORK HOME”
            • Ignis looks badass and isn’t self-conscious all night. Win-win!
    • Sora is a BEAST at Whack-a-Cactuar
      • Uses his medallions to buy stickers for the car since he doesn’t really have much use for anything else
        • Ignis does NOT APPROVE
        • Gladio: “C’mon, Iggy, let the kid have some fun. Won’t hurt the car any.”
          • Ignis relents but let the record show that he does NOT APPROVE nor will he EVER APPROVE
    • Gladio offering Sora pointers about flirting
      • You guys
        • YOU GUYS
          • Sora has the flirting prowess of a crushed soda can okay this kid is an awkward noodle okay please be patient with him
            • You’re really cute and he can’t stop blushing and words are HARD
              • Sora: “Y-You… come here often? You like… Assassin-ing, huh?”
              • Gladio: “Sora no”
    • Ignis and Sora attempt the tightrope walk together
      • Ignis kills it, naturally
      • Sora…
        • Surprisingly? Unsurprisingly?
          • Almost GETS killed
            • You’d think this kid would be all balance and grace. Not so.
              • Once he realizes that he’s not going to be able to make it across by walking the tightrope, he may or may not abuse one of his special abilities to glide the rest of the way across………. >_>
                • Sora: “That’s not cheating, is it”
                • Ignis: “I’m fairly certain that’s cheating”
    • Prompto’s not alone when he voices sympathy for the MTs.
      • Sora bleeds empathy. Of course he’s going to feel sorry for these mindless machines created to essentially be cannon fodder. (He feels bad for Dr. Finkelstein’s creation in KH2, after all!)
        • Sora has no idea how much it means to Prompto to hear someone else voicing sympathy for the MTs
          • Prompto: *Sniffles* There’s hope for your generation after all, isn’t there"
          • Sora: “YOU’RE LITERALLY TWO YEARS OLDER THAN ME”
          • Noctis: “You’re that old already? They sure do grow up fast”
          • Sora: “I’m LEAVING”
          • Prompto: “Isn’t it too late for children to be out walking around by themselves?”
          • Noctis: “Yup. Pretty sure there’s a curfew, too, now that you mention it”
          • Sora: “SCREW YOU GUYS. I’M GONNA GO DO SOMETHING IRRESPONSIBLE”
    • Sora kind of breaks the DLC though
      • Cindy: “We gotta get them keycards”
      • Noctis: “No we don’t”
      • Cindy: “We don’t?”
      • Prompto: *Pointing to Sora* “Meet the Incredible Human Lockpick”
      • Sora: "Hello”
      • Cindy: “Hi”

Post-Chapter 9 Stuff Under the Cut

  • Chapter 9
    • Sora starts crying when he sees Luna’s wedding dress
      • He’s really excited to see Noct get married okay
        • Please don’t think about Sora wandering around while they all wait for Noctis to wake up, walking through the wreckage Altissia becomes and finding the tattered wedding dress amongst the rubble
          • Noctis was so excited to reuniting with Luna
            • They were so close
    • As much as he wants to help Noctis tame Leviathan, he knows that isn’t his battle to fight. So he helps the other bros with evacuation efforts
      • This is one of Sora’s first real tastes of how awful the Empire is. He’d heard about what they did to Insomnia and other parts of the world, but seeing first-hand as soldiers terrorize innocent civilians is almost more than he can take
      • The Keyblade becomes an invaluable tool when Sora dedicates himself to digging people out of collapsed buildings
    • The most devastated parts of the city are the ones closest to where Noct undergoes the trial of Leviathan
      • So Sora is pretty close by when Noct finishes her off… and then tumbles out of the sky, completely drained from the fight
        • Actual Junior Lifeguard Sora dives into the water the second Noct’s unconscious body smashes into it
          • Ahhh the waves are still too turbulent
            • No worries. Sora can literally make himself half-fish
              • Prompto sees Noctis fall, too, and runs over to the pier as quickly as he can. He makes it just in time to see Sora dragging Noctis out of the water.
                • Prompto: “Is that a tail”
                • Sora: “Um”
                • Prompto: “So you’re not just an alien, you’re an alien mermaid. K.”
    • I’ll probably have more Ignis-related headcanons after Episode Ignis comes out. Who finds him in the aftermath? What happens immediately after? Ughhhh it hurts
  • Chapter 10
    • AKA “The Chapter Where Everyone Is Upset and Sora Doesn’t Know What To Do”
    • Sora and Prompto stay with Ignis while Gladio and Noctis go their separate ways to brood
      • They borrow Ignis’s daggers to carve simple shapes into the caps of the curatives so Ignis can quickly identify which to use in case of an emergency
  • Chapter 13
    • Okay but if Ardyn doesn’t do something to get Sora out of the way for a while, Noctis’s trip through Zegnatus Keep will be decidedly easier and less emotionally weighted hahaha
      • Ardyn: *Closes door and locks it in Noct’s face* “Too bad mwahahahaha”
      • Sora: *Taps the door with the Keyblade to unlock the door* “Go suck an egg, you tacky trash can man”
      • Ardyn: “…”
        • Sora isn’t around when Ardyn pretends to be Prompto and tricks Noctis on the train, so maybe Ardyn could disguise himself and trick Sora that way
          • Now there are two precious boys missing OH GOD PLEASE FIND THEM
      • EDIT: @thesohirydestiny made a good point about how Ardyn would probably just lock all of the doors and post MTs everywhere to counteract Sora’s Keyblade
