about two weeks ago someone in my family told me that my dream job was pitiful and shameful and its still bugging me but i wanna be a farmer cuz i have so much love for the earth and what lives on it i was wondering if youd write something like farmer s/o x ignis in the sense that the s/o would make the vegetables he cooks with? sorry if it's silly i feel like it's a great idea to prove that what i love isnt dumb and shameful
I am so sorry to hear that! Just so you know, I support you 100 percent! I’d be honored to write this! Please don’t give up on your dreams! I’m rooting for you!
You sighed softly, another hard day, but you had just returned home, a 30 minute drive everyday out to the outskirts of the Insomnia to the orchards and farmland that you worked your fingers to the bones for. It wasn’t what a typical ‘City’ person would consider a nice job, but it made you happy.
Stepping into the apartment, you noticed all the lights off, meaning you had gotten home before your boyfriend, who was possibly putting in a little more extra hours. Which made this easier, as you stripped in the vestibule, not wanting to drag the dirt from your coveralls all over the nice clean apartment.
It was one thing to work in dirt all day, but to live in it with your boyfriend. Not a smart or wise choice. First you’d take a nice long shower, to get the grime and dirt off of you, than start prep for dinner, as you had bought a lot of fresh vegetables and fruit home.
Stepping into the shower, you allowed the warm water to rush over you, washing away todays tensions and bring back memories of when this was all a dream. Everyone told you it was just a dream and rather silly one at that. Who now a days would want to be a farmer?
Yet Ignis didn’t, when you first bought it up to him, he seemed a little off put, but then he begun asking questions. What did you want to plant? Was it just a hobby or something you wish to make a living out of? What budget did you have?
The questions through you off, yet you answered each truthfully as best you could, only for at the end of the week, Ignis had placed together a budget for you, along with helping you find a plot of land that would be best your needs.
“Why did you do this?” You asked, staring at the paperwork before you.
“No one should tell you what you can or cannot do. Your dreams are not foolish and I will assist you best I can to make your dreams a reality. As you are so passionate about it.” Ignis replied. “We can go look at everything tomorrow.”
It was honestly a dream come true, despite the first few months being quite the struggle. It was one thing to have cute little pots on your balcony and windowsill, and reading about the environment, a completely other thing to suddenly be in charge of 2 acres of land.
It took quite a bit, yet you finally saw your work start to flourish, and were able to hire some helping hands to take care of the area. Yet the thing that made you most happiest was how passionate Ignis has been throughout the entire thing. The man would ask how your crops were doing, and even stayed up late one night to help you ensure that the your large beautiful apple tree didn’t get blown down in the highwinds of the storm.
When Ignis had suggest that it might be profitable to sell your labor, you were kind of put off, you weren’t expecting to make a profit really, having love the earth and watching everything grow. Yet still you both had a lot more produce than you knew what to do with it.
There was only so much zucchini that you both could stomach and Ignis could come up with ‘New Recipe-ehs’ so you begun to sell at the local farmers market. You figured your prices were reasonable, and had actually sold out on your first day with the first couple of hours. By the end of the month, you were getting special request and demands from Five Star restaurants in town of carts and crates full, so your acres extended and you ended up having to build a little office space out there.
Where Noctis, Prompto and Gladiolus would come keep you company, when they helped with work on days off. Well not so much Noctis and Prompto, they were having more fun playing with your work Chocobos.
You gave a deep sigh, as you entered the kitchen, holding your little woven basket full of fruits and vegetables, placing them in the sink to be washed off. When you heard the front door open, “Hello!”
A chorus echoed you back, meaning that everyone was over tonight, yet only Ignis moved into the kitchen. Neither Noctis nor Prompto were welcomed in the kitchen after the spaghetti incident.
“Hello Dear.” Ignis chuckled, leaning forward pressing a kiss to the cheek your present him, as he removed his suit jacket.
“Hello, Iggy.” You cooed back, “Full house tonight, good thing I brought home so much, I’m worried that I won’t be able to sell it and the Chocobos will have to eat it.” You explained, rinsing off the vegetables.
Ignis smiled, “We’ll just have to make certain that we use this up.”
You smiled to the man, happy to have someone within your corner throughout all of this, because there were certain times you didn’t want to do anything but give up.Yet Ignis always pushed you through and always knew exactly what to say to push you through, and sometime physically push you out of bed to keep doing what you loved.
“You know, Ignis, I know I’ve thanked you before, but thank you again for believing in me.”
Ignis stopped preparing his half of the meal, wrapping an arm around your shoulders. “You don’t need to ever thank me, I love seeing you be happy doing what you love, and I will assist you in every way I can.”
You smiled, softly wrapping an arm around the man’s waist, hugging him tightly in return, “Thank you for that as well.”
Ignis chuckled, “Besides, your vegetables are the only ones that I can sneak into Noct’s food without him noticing.”
You giggled softly as that.
