((So, I'm bored. I need to work on my writing skills. And I really want to write a fanfic about FFXV rn. 

Yeah.

If any of you guys have ever watched/played FFXV, you know that the ending is pretty sad. 

Because I am a sap, I will not be going with that timeline. Yes, I am a baby. Deal. XP

I guess, enjoy~))

 

Chapter 1: Bad Grades

About three months had passed since King Noctis Lucis Caelum had returned. His entrance back into the world of the living was a spectacular sight, and a welcome one. Everyone was glad to see him after his sudden but necessary de.ath. 

Noctis was sitting on his throne, his Shield, Gladiolus, on his right; His advisor, Ignis, on his left. At the moment, Ignis Stupeo Scientia was conversing with him on political matters. Such as; shutting down any more MT factories or bases, making peace with Altissa; possibly sending people overseas to help rebuild. 

"...Perhaps-" Ignis was cut off when Prompto Argentum-The king's closest friend- burst in through the castle doors, looked scruffled. 

"Hey guys!" He shouted merrily. Although he looked a bit bedraggled, Prompto was as bouncy as ever. 

Gladiolus, Ignis, and Noctis all gave him the same disappointed look. 

The blonde stopped in his tracks. "What?" He asked.

Ignis pushed his glasses farther up on his nose. "First of all, you tracked dirt onto the palace floor."

"Second," Gladiolus' deep voice growled. "You look a mess."

"Third," Noctis chimed in. "You're late." 

Prompto gained a guilty expression. "Whoops?" He shrugged. 

Noctis sighed. "How'd the test go?" 

In Insomnia, when you didn't get a chance to finish your school, jobs that you were applying for gave you a test to see what level your intelligence was at.

"Not great." Prompto sighed. "I didn't get a high enough score."

"And what, pray tell, was your score?" Ignis inquiried. 

Prompto approached the throne. "Umm..." He mumbled. "Only about... Y'know... Forty-three percent." He gave them a guilty smile. 

Noctis put his face in his right hand. "Are you kidding?" He said through his hand. 

"Nope." Prompto looked down at his hands. 

Ignis sighed, but straightened his shoulders. "Then we'll simply have to educate you." 

"Here?" Prompto whined.

"No." Ignis replied curtly. "We shall do your education in Tenebrae." 

The thin man looked to Ignis with disbelief. "Tenebrae??" His head tilted to the side. "Why all the way over there??" His voice began to sound a bit panicky. 

"Tenebrae has one of the best colleges in all of Eos." The Aquamarine-eyed man replied. 

"How would get in?" Prompto asked. "I got a forty-three on a job-requirement test. On easy." His tone was suddenly sarcastic and a tad bitter. 

Gladiolus rolled his eyes. "Stop complaining and asking questions. Why are you so afraid of going?" He saw right through Prompto's disguise. 

The blonde, defeated, looked back down at the ground. "I don't want to be alone." He muttered.

"There's the truth." The larger man said. 

"Then we'll go with you." Noctis, earning a surprised look from Ignis, Gladiolus and Prompto, was fingering the hem of his royal garb. "Tenebrae is out of the country, and the people there won't know who..." He trailed off.

Ignis frowned. "You are hoping to get out of royal duties, your Highness?"

"No," Noctis looked at Prompto. "Prom just said he didn't want to be alone. So, we'll go with him." 

"Alright then," Ignis said, turning back to face the small blonde. "Pack your things."

"Don't get much of a choice, do I?" Prompto raised an eyebrow. 

"You're the one that got forty-three..." Gladiolus growled.

"Alright, alright, I'm packing my things." Prompto said, mimicking Ignis' Tenebraen((British)) accent. 

 

((So, hopefully things will pick up in the next chapter(or the next, or the next). But, this is how I'll have to leave it for now. Gotta get some sleep. Wait, I have to write something on something else. Darn. Oh well. I guess I'll be up for a bit longer. But not long enough to write any more on THIS monster. Hopefully the next chapter will be longer.))

Chapter 2:

As he stuffed his clothes and important items into his suitcase, Prompto worried about what would happen at this new college. Brayic University was one of the most upstanding colleges in Tenebrae. But it was also in Tenebrae. At that college, would anyone even recognize Noctis as King? Sure, Noctis could be and act like a king when he wanted, but the man's appearance was a little underwhelming; especially when compared to his father. 

Prompto had always feared school and college. He could learn, and it wasn't like he couldn't do the work; he was just afraid of the people. Ever since he was a kid, he had been mocked and shamed and bullied. Would it be any different at college? Afterall, it's a new place. New relationships to start. Perhaps it wouldn't be so bad.

Perhaps it would be worse. 

Before he could think on it too much, he was startled by a thudding on his door, signaling Gladiolus' impatience. 

"Are you done?' Came the man's muffled voice through the door. 

"Yeah, just tidying up." Prompto called back. After he finished, he slung his backpack over his shoulder and dragged his wheeled suitcase behind him. He opened the door to see Gladiolus, who looked a wee bit pale. 

"You alright, big guy?" Prompto asked. 

"Just a bit nervous. I'm sure you feel the same." The large man replied. 

Prompto laid his free hand on Gladiolus' muscled and tattooed shoulder. "It'll be fine. Don't sweat it." He smiled cheerfully, masking his own fear; something he had perfected over the years. 

Gladiolus and Prompto then made their way back to the main area of the palace, where Ignis and Noctis were waiting. 

"Is everyone quite ready?" Ignis asked. 

"Ready as I'll ever be." Prompto sighed. 

"Let's go then." Noctis remarked impatiently. Someone's eager. Prompto thought. You would think he wouldn't want to see the place his fiancee was from. He might start crying. 

They started on their journey. 

As per usual, they got the in the Regalia-Ignis at the wheel, Prompto in the passenger's seat, and Noctis and Gladiolus in the back- and began their incredibly long road trip; stopping every now and then to join a hunt or two. 

~~~

"Are we there yet?" Prompto, his head thrown back out of boredom, asked for the fiftieth time. 

"Actually, yes." Ignis answered shortly, his temper threatening like a black cloud. 

Prompto drew his head back up to see a massive campus laid out before them. It grew bigger the closer they came.  It was a beautiful place, full of top-of-the-line equipment and beautiful landscaping. 

"Woah..." Prompto breathed. "How did get into this place?" 

"We pulled some strings." Noctis replied, his eyes still closed. 

"Thought you were asleep." Gladiolus mumbled.

"I thought I was too." Noctis snapped. 

~~~
They walked into their dorm; a kind of smallish room that was to be split up amongst the four of them. There were two beds, but places for sleeping mats on the floor as well. There was a door that led off to a small bathroom, and a half-kitchen that was connected to the main room. There was some extra space for work desks and of the like, but other than that it looked rather empty. 

Prompto walked in first and placed his bag on a bed, then flopped down on it. He had not calculated, however, that these beds were considerably shorter than the ones back in Insomnia. His head thudded loudly on the metal ske.leton of the bed, and he jerked back up, rubbing the spot tenderly. 

"Ouch." He groaned.

"Maybe it's a sign." Noctis smirked. Prompto looked up at him. "It means I get the bed."

Prompto stuck his tongue out at him. "You're going to get a bed no matter what, your Highness. Iggy will make sure of that." 

Noctis shook his head. "Nope, I'm not royalty here, remember?" 

"That is not correct," Ignis stated, pushing his glasses further up onto his nose. "You are royalty no matter where you are, but the people's knowlege of that will change throughout the land of Eos." 

Prompto and Noctis turned to stare at him. 

Gladiolus then came in and took a look around. "It's perfect. For two people." He sighed, dropping his bag on the floor. 

It would have to do.

Chapter 3:

It was after the first day. 

The first full day of college craziness. 

It was FINALLY over. 

Well, excpet for all the assignments that he had to work on. 

Prompto lugged his ever-heavier bag into their dorm, and tossed it on the ground. He sighed heavily and flopped down on the bed. He sat there for a while, breathing in the scent of the bed sheets. After a while, he grew uncomfortable with his face all smushed against the bed, so he shifted his head so he was laying on the side of his face instead. He looked around the room with half-closed eyes. 

He was so exhausted.

He felt as if someone had grabbed a brick of knowlege and tried to shove it down his throat. He closed his eyes and took a deep breath. He was awakened by the sound of the door opening. Before he opened his eyes, he felt a creaking in the bed as Noctis had just flopped down next to him. His face was also buried in the bedsheet. 

They actually sat in silence for a while. Not quite sure what to say to the other. 

Once more, the door opened and two sets of footsteps entered, signaling Gladiolus and Ignis' return. There was a bit of quiet mumbling between them, as if they didn't want to wake up Noctis and Prompto. Although, Prompto was not fully asleep. 

Was he?

~~~

"Wake up," A calm, accented voice awoke Prompto from his slumber. The blonde sat up and rubbed his eyes, looking rather childish. His hair was dishevelled once more, and he felt rather sleepy still. 

Ignis sat down on the bed next to the slim man, and patted his shoulder. "I have prepared supper, and was wondering if you would join us." He said smoothly. 

Prompto let out a yawn, and then sniffed the air. The pleasurable, delicious aroma filled his senses, and he lic.ked his lips hungrily. 

"That smells great." His voice sounded a bit crackley, but he didn't mind all that much. 

~~~

After eating, they took turns getting showers and personal hygiene. After that, they talked for a while before falling asleep. 

They decided on a rotation of sleeping places. First, Noctis and Prompto would get the two beds while Ignis and Gladiolus slept on the floor, then vice versa. 

However, Noctis couldn't sleep. 

Which was extremely strange. He was usually the first person to fall asleep. Heck, he had slept through most of the classes. However, he laid there on the bed with his eyes wide open. At first, he didn't mind too much. Perhaps he had just slept so much during the day that he had his quota filled. 

But then, his mind deciding to bring up all of his suffering. 

His former bride-to-be's dea.th. His father's murd.er. All the people that suffered for him. The Kingsglaive and Crownsguard...

And even his own de.ath. 

Noctis found himself biting his lip rather furiously; trying to bit.e back tears. To no avail, of course. Hot tears streamed down his cheeks. He forced his eyes shut, but the images of them where still there. He curled up and turned to his side. 

He saw Prompto laying still, most likely already asleep. Gladiolus was laying parallel to Prompto's bed, and Ignis was laying parallel to his own. He looked down on Ignis, and saw the painful scars that were etched across his closed eyes. He looked to Gladiolus and saw the scars all over his face and chest. And Prompto... Prompto had suffered as well, but the scars were not visible. 

The King let the tears stream across his face once more. It was all too much. He remembered how Talcott had suffered when Jared had di.ed defending Noctis himself.

Too many...

Chapter 3: Pt. 2

Ignis awoke at 3:26. He was awoken by the sounds of someone crying. He opened his eyes and looked to Prompto's bed. Surprisingly enough, the blonde was sound asleep. And it surely wasn't Gladiolus. 

He sat up off of the floor and looked to his right, over his shoulder. He widened his eyes, a bit shocked. 

King Noctis Lucis Caelum; the chosen King, the one with the power of The Six, was curled up around his knees.

Sobbing quietly. 

Ignis stood up and immediately bent over the young king. Noctis' eyes were squeezed shut, as if an attempt to keep the river of tears from streaming down his face. His eyes were puffed and red, as though he had been crying for quite some time. He was bit.ing onto his lip to keep his noises at a minimum. 

Ignis put a gloved hand on the King's raven-haired head. 

Noctis' sapphire-blue eyes shot open, and he sat up. 

"Your Highness," Ignis' voice was thick with worry. "Is something wrong?"

Noctis did his best to keep his breathing level. "I'm... fine." He said quietly.

"Your emotional state appears to be suggesting the opposite." Ignis replied. 

Noctis looked into the aquamarine eyes of his advisor, caretaker, and best friend. "It's just something that someone said." He answered.

Ignis sat on the edge of the bed, awaiting more information. 

Noctis continued, "I was in the hallway when I heard someone talking about a loss that they had... And I just..."

Ignis sighed and moved closer to the King. He wrapped his arms around him, and felt the raven-haired man's shoulders rise and fall as he began to cry all over again. 

"My king," Ignis said after a while of letting Noctis cry. "Do not think too much on the events of the past. They will claw you down with them." 

Noctis' crying had subsided, and he lifted his head from Ignis' shoulder. "I guess," He said, his voice and breathing still unsteady. "I just never.. truly came to terms with it..." He took a deep breath. 

Ignis sighed contently and looked down at him. "It's quite alright, your Highness." He patted him softly on the head.

(Trying to find somewhere for this to go...)

Chapter 3: pt. 3

As he was walking back to his dorm after he had finished his classes, Gladiolus began worrying about the others. Because that was just the way he naturally was. He was the protector. The papa bear. 

Wrapped up in his thoughts, he hardly even noticed when another person brushed against him in the hall. 

"Hey!" A voice called out to him. The large man turned around to see the man he brushed into. "Watch where you're goin' stup.id!" The guy called. He was a largeish man with quite a nice bit of fa.t on him. 

Gladiolus sighed. "Sorry." His deep voice growled.

"'sorry'?" The other man mocked. "That's not exactly gonna fix anything, is it?" The man approached Gladiolus, puffing himself up as he did so. Other students stopped to watch, and Gladiolus knew that wasn't going to help. 

I don't have time for this. Gladiolus thought. The man made a move, as if to harm him, but Gladiolus caught his arm and spun him around, locking him in a fierce headlock. "What do you think this is?" Gladiolus growled. "High school? Grow up." He tightened his grip, and several students gasped. 

"Gladio!" A sharp, curt voice called. Gladiolus looked up and released his grip. Ignis was watching him with a look of disappointment. He signaled Gladio over to where he stood. 

Gladio went.

"I am not pleased with this, Gladiolus Amitcia." Ignis' voice hurt every inch of Gladio. 

"I know, I just-"

"You were trying to get us kicked out so that Prompto has to deal with this alone?" Ignis snapped. 

"I was worried about the three of you, and he was threatening me, and my primal instincts kicked in, ALRIGHT?" He had grabbed Ignis by the shoulders and was bearing down upon him. 

There was a tense moment. 

"Guys?" Prompto's meak voice broke the silence. 

Gladiolus released his grip on Ignis' shoulders. "I'm sorry." He said quietly. 

Ignis let out a quiet chuckle and rubbed his shoulders. "It's quite alright." He sighed.

(Okay, that escalated quickly.

kinda cliche)
