If requests are closed than feel free to ignore this. But how about a scenario about noctis taking his s/o to meet his father and he's a bit nervous his father might disapprove of them, but they actually get along and even crack a few jokes with one another!
Requests are never closed so don’t you worry. I am really sorry it took me a while though! School got in my way and when I did end up having time I was working on my fanfic! I’m also, like, real bad with jokes (I an’t make them up or make them up at all) so it’s just having a great talk and such if that’s okay?????
It’s also pretty short because otherwise there’d be a lot of boring information that wouldn’t really keep the flow going. My apologies in advance.
Standing in front of his father with you by his side made his throat dry. He was absolutely terrified that he wouldn’t like you, that he’d tell him that you and he couldn’t be together. His palms grew sweaty whilst King Regis looked over you at dinner, speaking to you kindly and politely.
“I’m surprised my son managed to pick up someone as beautiful as you, ___.”
You giggled and he blushed. “What can I say? I have a think for cute boys who treat you right. You’ve raised quite the gentleman. Even if he doesn’t show it.”
“Oh?” King Regis rose a brow in amusement, a smile appearing on his lips. “A gentleman? My son? Now that’s a surprise.”
“Daaaad….” Noctis mumbled through a mouthful of smoked Baramundi.
“Stop embarrassing me…”
He merely chuckled. “But it’s good fun, you know. Right, ___?”
You nodded with that sly grin of yours and he groaned in annoyance. “Definately, your majesty. Especially in public.” You laughed again and you moved onto dessert. “Seriously though, Noct is really cute.”
And Regis only lit up like the sun with bright eyes, previously filled with a sadness which Noct hated to the core. “He truly is! You should have seen him when he was younger with his chubby cheeks and bright smile. His mother would always be so annoyed at how I just took him everywhere, not wanting to let him go.” He chuckled. “On his third birthday I had managed to persuade the council to give me some time with him - it constituted as four hours - and I refused to pass him to his mother.”
You smiled sweetly. “Did you end up running late?”
“If running late counts as not going, then yes.”
Noctis stopped eating then, his mouth agape, and you stared at the King with wide eyes. Both of you were in complete shock. King Regis didn’t seem like the type of man to miss a meeting even if he was sick. Noctis could never remember a time where his father didn’t go to a single meeting.
“Majesty you… you…you did?”
“Of course.” He simply shrugged, unsure what all the surprise was about. “He wouldn’t stop asking me to read to him. And when he did stop he had fallen asleep. And I was about to get ready to leave but I must have dosed off, because next thing I knew his mother was shaking my shoulders and he was drawing squiggles on my face. With eyeliner. Waterproof eyeliner… and he did the same on my eyes. With permanent marker.” He laughed loudly - almost guffawing - and leaned back in his seat. “At the time I was less than pleased, but now I find it absolutely hilarious. Especially with his little laugh.”
You laughed. He blushed. Regis laughed even louder. And Noct was… well… he wanted to be swallowed up by the floor…
“So… you… um”
Regis had asked Noct to carry a box for him from the archives up to his room: any excuse to spend time with him. “I what?”
“You accept her? Right? You weren’t just putting on a show to be polite?”
“I may be good at many things and lying isn’t one of them.” He smiled. “My boy, she’s good for you: allows you to relax and be yourself. I just hope that whatever happens in the future won’t break what precious time you have apart and separate the both of you.”
Noctis went to ask him about what that all meant, but he decided not to in the end. Just in case he would get no answer, or, worse still, an answer in which he didn’t want to know.
“Well, come on then. Chop chop. We don’t have the day to waste.” Regis nudged Noct’s arm with a smile and Noct smiled in dismay.
It was safe to say that by how Regis ended up inviting you to almost everything and was talking to Noct all about the things he loved about you, it was safe to say that you were welcomed with open arms.
