A/N:When you get the distinct feeling that you’re writing things that you shouldn’t but you do it anyway because fuck it, honestly.
Cor had left you alone in the small chamber to make sure nothing had trailed after the two of you. Gladio had left earlier to complete a trial on his own. You sighed as you leant up again the wall of the cavern, happy for the moment of peace.
There was no way you could have let Gladio leave on his own. You knew something had been eating him up after the encounter with Ravus. You had known Gladiolus your entire life, he was your closest friend, pretty much a brother and there was no doubt that you had picked up that imperceptible change in his demeanour. As soon as he had declared that he was going to handle some business on his own, you had followed after him leaving no room for argument. Noctis had Prompto and Ignis with him so he would be fine.
At the time you didn’t realise Gladio had called up Cor for help, but it didn’t hurt having you around. Even if the Amicitia didn’t express it, you knew he was happy to have your support. He always was.
Fanfictions always go on about how Adrien has Ladybug on a pedestal and how Plagg is telling him about how he needs to stop doing that, but I think in reality, it’s he who can see that ladybug is human and imperfect and that’s okay, and it’s actually Marinette who sees Adrien as this perfect, kind, model boy. And it’ll probably take her a bit to take Adrien off of the pedestal, if at all, not the other way around.
