A fanfic exchange with @alphaweeb. I don’t think this is exactly what you asked for and Prompto is probably OOC. I tried my best. Hope you enjoy it.
Prompto x reader, SFW
A loner, hunter, avid fisher. You learned to survive on your own through hunts and by learning how to fish. You found yourself getting up before the sun to wet a line. Many nights were spent eating fresh trout around the campfire with other hunters.
You had one goal: To capture a giant Murk Grouper named the “Devil of the Cygillan”, one of the toughest fish to catch.
You were meant to catch this fish. You could feel it in your bones. Today was the day!
Feeling lucky, you decided to head down to the local fishing hole, where the devil was rumored to be. Everything was in place. The weather was just right, cloudy and cool, but no strong winds. With your lucky fishing supplies and lucky pole in hand, you took a few moments to survey the area.
The water was calm, the cool air was crisp, an excellent day for fishing. In the distance, you could see other locals had the same idea. A familiar gentlemen and his grandson at the opposite side, before beginning your normal routine, you took a moment to offer a warm smile and greeting to the family. However, you were interrupted by a loud shout and ruckus from your right.
You noticed a group of young men. The man with raven colored hair let out a victory shout, “Hey! Looks like I landed a dream.”
A tall, muscular shirtless man had jumped into the water. Shortly after, a lean man with glasses was in the water by a smaller blonde man. The blonde man was kicked into the water by the raven haired man.
“Gladio, get ready!” shouted the raven haired man.
The tall, muscular man retorted, “I’m on it.”
Your fists clenched and eyes squinted as large olive object came into your vision.
Devil of the Cygillan.
For so long, you tried your best to catch the massive grouper, but had no luck. These four men would waltz up to the water and snatch the beast right before you.
The other three men quickly huddled around the larger man as he held the fish. Your fish.
An exasperated sigh left your lips as your feet carried you over to their location. The muscular man, who the raven haired man deemed as “Gladio”, was in the process of carrying your fish back to land, as the others followed behind him.
Once the fish was on land, the two taller men walked in direction of the parking lot, leaving the smaller two to examine the fish.
Noctis commented, “We should head back to Navyth for our reward.”
“Not without a picture first!” Prompto exclaimed as he fiddled with his camera. “Come on, let me get this sh- uh oh!” The blonde man was unable to finish his comment as he noticed you starting to stride up behind Noctis.
“What the crap!” You shouted, as a loud groan escaped your throat. “I’ve been trying to catch that thing for weeks! You come out of no where and catch him with no effort! Was this your first attempt?“
The men started at you with wide eyes as your rant continued.
“Uhh.. yeah, I guess so?” questioned the raven haired man.
“I have been coming here every week to catch Devil of the Cygillan and y-you catch it on your first try!”
Prompto snickered, “Devil of the Cygillan? Nice name.”
“I guess it wasn’t mean to be.” You let out a loud sigh and in that you examined the two bodies in front of you. At least they were easy on the eyes, especially the blonde.
“Excuse me?” asked the blonde man.
Your gaze dropped to the ground as you stated, “The fish. I was supposed to be the one to catch it.”
The two men stood in silence, before the blonde man extended his hand and offered you a lively smile. “Well, the fish may not have been, but maybe you were meant to meet someone instead. I’m Prompto, it’s nice to meet you.”
