When people come to me and say Aerith, Zack, Noctis, and Lunafreya are either “over one another”, “a retcon”, “have no time to fall in love”, “have no interaction”, “are in the past”, “only friends”, only loved one another when they were young and not anymore”, “have no development”, “are not in love” or “is a bad relationship”
His father, Verstael, was the head researcher for Niflheim’s military, and he already had his son slated as a magitek soldier. But he probably wouldn’t be some mere grunt. Oh, no. Any progeny of a man like him had a higher calling. Prompto would’ve been the perfect warrior, the fruit of all of his research and technology.
He would’ve also been a half daemon monstrosity, and completely unstable. Prompto would be able to keep up a facade for a time, but eventually his nature would’ve gotten to him. He would’ve gone digging through some notes to find out what makes him so special.
And then Ardyn would’ve stepped in and explained everything. They were children of astrals. They were better. Humanity is living off the scraps of their greatness, and must be eliminated if they ever want to take their rightful places.
I’m terrified because only one person in all of Final Fantasy has a similar backstory.
The Midgar motorcycle chase scene in FF7 was always one of my favourite parts of the game, I think the music + the concept of driving a motorcycle while swinging a bigass sword always seemed PRETTY DANG COOL to younger me, haha! This was reaaaally rushed though so I will probs come back to the “80′s neon motorcycle chase” concept with Cloud again sometime. :’)
