the idea amuses me okay

After reading your post about fixing Phi, I was wondering, what happened to Laphicet/Maotelus after Sorey went to sleep with him? I haven't bought Berseria yet (I'm waiting for a Steam sale lol), but since I already spoilered myself a bunch, I'm okay with spoilers.

Tales of Berseria (the game) doesn’t actually tell us, but from what I’ve heard, the Berseria novelization starts with the end of Zestiria, with Phi telling Sorey Berseria’s story.  Which is a continuation (of sorts) of the Zestiria manga, where Phi tells Sorey he’ll “tell him a story of the past” in the final chapter before we cut to the epilogue with Epileo.

So I personally like to think that at least part of that time, Phi and Sorey were talking and swapping stories about themselves and the past, and given that Phi loves to explore, and Sorey loves history, I’d like to think they got along super well and by the time Sorey wakes up and rejoins the world, they’re really good friends and are on total first name basis with each other, haha.  Just imagine, Sorey and Mikleo getting into a debate over something in a set of ruins and Sorey just tapping the ground and calling up Phi by name and being all, “Look, Maotelus, Mikleo and I are having a disagreement here about this thing, and I know it was around after you took over as the leader of the Five Lords, so can you settle this debate for us once and for all?”  And Phi indulging him because, hey, he’s just chilling using the continent as his vessel and it’s not like the other Lords are all that talkative so he may as well.

au where a multidimensional traveler arrives in the main universe, takes one look at Batman, and freaks out because Batman looks really angry and frightening for no obvious reason. After a bit of a fiasco, they explain that in their world, Batman is very serious and can be frightening when on the job, but otherwise, he’s a really nice guy and a steady, relaxing presence.” Everyone sort of goes, “oh, so Nightwing’s Batman in your world. That makes sense.”

And the traveler’s like, uh, no. It is definitely Bruce under the cowl.

Cue the most rigorous game of 20 Questions in recorded history, in which they learn no, Bruce’s parents are still very dead, yes Jason Todd also died and was revived, yes the Joker is horrifying, yes Gotham is still horrifying, honestly everything seems about the same, except that the traveler’s Bruce runs an orphanage. A very modern, hands-on orphanage, ages infant through eighteen, functioning more like the most sympathetic boarding school ever than anything else, where Bruce spends the majority of his time when he’s not Batmanning it up.

Nightwing takes one look at Batman and says, “Okay, yeah. I can see how that would work.”

Batman, World’s Greatest Detective, grumbles and says, “And what do you mean by that?”

“Dude,” Nightwing says.

The sentiment is echoed by his hoard of adopted children.
