Hi! Can I ask you what depressing revalations were in Comrades? I don’t have money to buy it and I’m dying to know what happens in it... xo
There are lots of depressing revelations in Comrades, actually. It gives us a little insight into what happens in Lucis after Noct disappears into the crystal and darkness takes over, so there really isn’t much happiness going around. Libertus is in the story (at least in the beginning) so that’s awesome, but we also get some stories regarding the bros and what they get up to in those first few months.
The most depressing, of course, is Ignis. As @rsasai explained it best, basically we find out that Iggy headed out to Galdin Quay after Noct went missing. Cid tells the story, and claims Iggy went out there “for fishing” - but we can all assume he goes there to wait for Noct. Later in Comrades, Talcott explains that the royal boat (the one the bros took to Altissia and the one Noct rides back to shore after ten years) has washed up near Angelgard. Maybe Ignis went out there following the legends of the astrals and the royal line, on a hunch that Noct would eventually reappear on the island, too.
What’s depressing is the rest of the story. We know that by the time Noct wakes up, Galdin Quay is in ruins. Everyone there is dead/turned into a demon. So it makes us wonder, how long was Ignis waiting there before he was driven away? ;^;
