Noctis: Noctis, when intoxicated, would become a enlarged version of normal personality. Basically he’d become more sassier than normal just with the added benefit of a slur on all his words. His go to phrase would be ‘Yeah? Fight me,’ punctuated by another swig of his drink from the bottle.
Prompto: He’s so gone he will literally do all the stupid shit you tell him to do. Piss in the bushes outside? Hell yeah. Kiss Ignis? Why the hell not!!! Not like he’ll remember any of this tomorrow. Everything also becomes extra funny to him.
Gladio: Once he’s loosened up with a few drinks, Gladio suddenly becomes everyone’s buddy. He’s super chummy with everyone and goes around pointing out his friends to new people he meets. He also gets into a “sling your arm around everyone’s shoulders” mood.
Ignis: He has the best drunken dance. Once this man is drunk, he can’t walk for more than a couple feet without stumbling sideways. One of the best moments saved in Prompto’s phone is a video of Ignis tripping over his own feet past the campfire and tumbling off the cliff. It’s cool though. Only took eight stitches and a potion to have him up and running in a couple days. Since that incident the group doesn’t build the campfires close to the edge of the cliff anymore.
(BONUS YAY) Their preferred drinks:
Noctis: Wine, though he prefers white wine over red.
Prompto: Mixed drinks - he prefers a shot of Fireball mixed with some pineapple or apple juice.
Gladio: Beer all the way, most likely Coors Light or Blue Moon
(DOUBLE BONUS WOAH) How many drinks it takes to get them drunk(In terms of their favored drinks):
I was gonna wait and put this in the tags of a gifset or something but actually? Nah. Imma say it now.
I’m really tired of the way the Supergirl writers panic and hit the love triangle button any time they’re not sure how to handle a given situation.
Because look. I am Team James Olsen. He’s a solid support system and a much-needed voice of reason, and also he is charming and attractive and a very good person. I like that Kara likes him–I like him too! And him wanting to take a step away after Red K, between needing to process Kara’s anger and his own feelings of guilt over Lucy, made a lot of sense.
What doesn’t make sense is to then muddy that with a stupid jealousy plotline for no reason. They ALREADY HAD A REASON TO BE APART. WHY MESS WITH THAT?
Because the fallout, then, is that we see James at his worst, most entitled self in what should be his big triumphant episode. When he and Kara get together, I want it to be because they’re being their best selves, and they’re better together. Instead we got an episode of him skulking around like a brat and then getting rewarded for it. And that just doesn’t sit right with me.
It’s just lazy. It’s a false way to create drama in a way that doesn’t actually service the story. Because look at how they handled everyone else! Winn of all people (yes! Winn!) had to tell James he was ruining things by acting jealous, and Lucy (the freaking champion of the world tbh what a gem) not only had a great heart to heart with James about how their relationship ended, she admitted it should never have started again in the first place–which shows that these writers are more than aware of how tired these tropes are, and that they’re capable of growing their characters out of them.
James deserves that. He’s the romantic lead of the show. And I should be more pumped than this that I’m finally going to see him that way.
