I'm tired.

Turns out I didn't actually hit Post on this last night, I was having Emotions.



Chapter 9, we made it!

Great, two of my least-favourite people and some ~*~ominous~*~ exposition.


Kiiind of surprised Prompto's not afraid of being on open water, but I am happy for him.

I KNOW, RIGHT, GLADIO? Geez, this has been a heck of a detour. But we're finally gonna get there!


LEVIATHAN???

LEVIATHAN LEVIATHAN (BESTEST)
LEVIATHAN LEVIATHAN (CUTEST)
LEVIATHAN LEVIATHAN I DON'T KNOW I can't be bothered to rewrite the rest of Through The Maelstrom (which is a fantastic song, btw).


I am pretty excited to meet Luna properly, as opposed to in vague scenes and flashbacks! I'm also pretty sure it won't happen until like chapter 14 and a half or something but MAYBE FOR ONCE THINGS WILL GO ACCORDING TO PLAN.


Ravus has a daemon-arm, dun-dun-duuun.



ASSHOLE, YOU GIVE THAT SWORD BACK.


Prompto, don't be fooled, that man is a slimy little shitface. He definitely is only helping us for his own purposes. I regret helping him, even if it was necessary, because I'm pretty sure whatever he's plotting is gonna suck hardcore. I know you fall in love with LITERALLY EVERYONE EVER but you really gotta let this one go, man.


AMAZING!! LIFE-CHANGING!!! bored now are we there yet child let me put blankets on you I promise not to mess your hair up


Oh, right. Yeah, there's no way we're meeting up with Luna soon, since it'd mean we get the ring, and that seems unlikely to fall back into our possession at this stage.


InB4 she meets us at the docks, Ardyn is secretly a good guy, and, what the hell, Prompto really actually is an Eldritch abomination.

THAT RING BURNS PEOPLE TO DEATH AND CAN COMMUNICATE WITH DEAD FOLK, OF COURSE IT'S "HEAVY" geez


oh no Cid and Dad had a falling out at the end of their trip, that hadn't better be goddamned foreshadowing, I will burn down the world.


Well, now I'm forever going to be wondering if the car she saw get attacked by daemons had her parents in it and feeling bad for being irritated about it.


Cid is such an old man, hahaha.


Damnit, Cid, I trusted you. I should've known better. I'M SORRY FOR NOT ASKING YOU, IGNIS, YOU KNOW IT'S NOTHING PERSONAL. Muh 3k. nooo.

Can I save yet.

Cid, are you just gonna stand there...?


WOW COULD YOU NOT SHOUT MY TITLE AND NAME ACROSS YOUR ENTIRE BAR PLEASE



WOAH WOAH WOAH WAIT TIDEMOTHER

IS LEVIATHAN A GIRL?!

THIS IS THE BEST GAME EVER


who is this how does she know I'm here oh my god what THANKS EXPOSITION IGNIS


Gladio, why can't you sit on a seat in the gondola like a normal human, if we go offbalance and fall into the water I am going to be so annoyed.


GENTIANA AND DOGGO RETURN


Umbra has epic flashback capabilities? Weird.


Gentiana has photobombed so many pics I wanted to post so I caaaaan't because I've only tied my PSN thing to twitter and SPOILERS.



... Are they playing Old Maid?



"So, what's your plan if your glasses break?" asks Noct, because he is a fate-tempting asshole.

Prompto, how can you already know the perfect spot for a group photo when we've just barely got here? Maybe you were out running this morning and found it.


I can't believe these npcs are shit-talking me for not being here for a wedding while I'm literally five feet behind them. It's so cute that everyone 'ships them, though, hahaha.


I'm just getting... increasingly lost in this place.

Ignis, who is this a painting of.

IGNIS, STOP PLAYING WITH YOUR PHONE AND TELL ME WHO THIS PAINTING IS OF.

ugh. Some master of exposition you are.



Finally get to the photo area but LOL IT'S 3 PM TOO DARK OUT uuugh



I dunno, as dresses go, it's kinda weird and not that exciting. (Yes, I got THAT LOST that I went from apparently quite near the dress aaaall the way back to the photo op, BY WAY OF THE BLUE ROUTE GONDOLA.)



This inn is expensive, ugh.


"When do we get to go sightseeing?"?? We're on our way RIGHT NOW for you to take a picture somewhere, doesn't that count?



I can't get over Noct hating carrots so much that Ignis is expressly forbidden from using them in food prep in any way.



I CAN FISH THE PLACE DRY IF I WANT TO, GLADIO. It's better than getting lost! (MAYBE?!) You'd think I'd be more eager to explore this place and yet I'm just... ???

I accidentally hooked something difficult.

Scorpion grouper, eh? Groupers seem to always be a pain in the butt to reel in. Though Liege wasn't a grouper, never mind.


Ignis is very interested in the gelato cart.

(Me, too, Ignis. Me, too.)


Anyway, it's night, time to go... try to negotiate for my girlfriend, I guess. God damn it. This is going to go... so badly.


UNABLE TO RETURN IF I ENTER? OH NO. I hit yes anyway because apparently I'm done dilly-dallying for the time being???? who even am I?


This is very stressful.


DON'T SELECT BE CHEEKY DON'T SELECT BE CHEEKY


Noct, couldn't you like, sit down or something?


oh no I'm not sure how to answer this one



Ha, I wonder, if you act like a moron, does she kick you out?


Assign three of my own? I only have three. I guess that'll make it easy.


Yay, I made a positive impression.

Wonder what made the Empire crack ~10 years ago. (If this were FFXIV, it would, of course, be Ascians. But I guess I can't actually blame them for everything.)

(No, you know what? Fuck it, it was totally the Ascians. Fuck those guys.)



leviathaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn



I still don't feel like I understand what exactly is so important about the Oracle. Communes with the gods, heals injuries, and, uh? Please give me a shred more context, game, because I really, really feel like I'm missing a critical piece somewhere.

Oh, Noct sure moved up the crowd quickly. Good job, kid.


Now, of course, when she says the Light is slowly fading from our world, what she literally means is THE LIGHT IS ACTUALLY FUCKING FADING WHAT THE HELL which is pretty scary D:



when the hell did Iris and Talcott get here what wait back up


HOW? DID?? YOU??? GET HERE????



I want them to be able to hold haaaands awwwww I can't believe they haven't see each other or even properly talked in twelve years and that's the best they get also when did I turn into such an omnishippper.



WHERE MY LEVIATHAN AT THOUGH I MISS HIM HER shit that's so cool levi's a she




Oh, that was supposed to be Luna singing. I thought it was the soundtrack, oops.



LEVI!!!! ♥ ugh best summon i love herrrrrr

She's so angry hahahahaha

Leviathan, it's not nice to eat people mid-conversation. Honestly, you know better. THERE IS A TIME FOR NOMMING, AND IT WAS NOT THERE.



Jump, he says. Geezum.



WHAT ARE WE EVEN ON, THOUGH


oh man I thought he was gonna stab her in the eye for the second that was awful


GOD DAMN IT, GUYS, I turned the subtitles on, thereby forever distracting myself with words at the bottom of the screen, and you still can't tell me what's being said here?!

request or demand request or demand aaaaa these guys are so fickle, she could be offended by me being a timid loser who ASKS but she could also be offended by me being a cocky jerkface who DEMANDS it could go either waaaay WHORLEATER, HELP ME OUT. Please? I love you?

Noct, that was really needlessly overdramatic, you're a mess.


Oh, I probably don't need a confuse-proofing accessory for this fight.



THIS IS THE BEST BATTLEFIELD OH MAN


oh no luna are you drowning? No, never mind, you're just expressing your intense physical revulsion for Ardyn. Same, girl. Saaaame. The fuck are you even doing out here. LUNA IS ONE OF MY CHILDREN THAT I HAVE FORBIDDEN YOU FROM TOUCHING. YOU THINK JUST BECAUSE I HAVEN'T HAD MUCH TIME TO SEE HER MEANS I DID NOT IMMEDIATELY ADOPT HER? NO. SHE IS MINE.


oh fucK YOU PIECE. OF. SHIT. kjbsngf ACTUALLY SCREAMING AT TELEVISION

SPIT ON HIM

Or be a decent human, I guess someone has to.


oh my god she doesn't actually die does she I'm going to KILL SOMEONE what was that knife why is the bloodstain BLACK I AM SO UPSET RIGHT NOW AND NOCT IS LIKE

DEAD OR UNCONSCIOUS OR SOMETHING OVER HERE I DON'T EVEN KNOW

???

now he can fly I guess yeah okay


THIS IS VERY STRESSFUL I'M SORRY LEVIATHAN I WANT TO BE FOCUSED ON THIS VERY COOL ARENA AND YOUR VERY AWESOME SELF BUT I AM FLAILING ALL OVER MYSELF AND THUS COMPLETELY DISTRACTED FOR REASONS THAT ARE NOT YOU FAULT IN ANY WAY

Also like I'm really sorry about your fin.


No one trained me on aerial combat.


Good god, where did they even evacuate folk to?


Oh, man, I hope there are terrible fishing jokes about this at some point.




Look, I honestly have no idea what just happened, but Leviathan's been bested, so, woohoo.


Titan, you're... very small next to her.


Luna is A++ Paladin, would party with, but oh my god she's actually going to die isn't she noooo


SmallNoct is so teeny and adorable, give him lots of pillows and protect him from where I'm pretty sure this conversation is gonna go, oh no, oh no, ooh no no nooooo nonono



THIS GAME IS A BULLY

I'M NOT CRYING, YOU'RE CRYING

DON'T LOOK AT ME


What the fuck happened to what Ignis what

happened to your FACE?!




I DON'T LIKE THIS GAME ANYMORE

I'M GOING HOME



He didn't even get to make all the recipes he came up with because I suck and didn't get him all his ingredients no




FUCK

ahahahahahaaaaaa (sobbing)

I know you fall in love with LITERALLY EVERYONE EVER but you really gotta let this one go, man.

He really does, on both counts.

child let me put blankets on you I promise not to mess your hair up

I'M SO SAD ABOUT YOUR HAPPY MOMENTS IN ANTICIPATION OF THE SADNESS TO COME LATER IN THIS ENTRY.

I got so, so lost looking for that dress. Altissia is impossible to navigate.

LUNA IS ONE OF MY CHILDREN THAT I HAVE FORBIDDEN YOU FROM TOUCHING. YOU THINK JUST BECAUSE I HAVEN'T HAD MUCH TIME TO SEE HER MEANS I DID NOT IMMEDIATELY ADOPT HER? NO. SHE IS MINE.

This is incredibly charming (and also heartbreaking, oh no).

Oh, man, I hope there are terrible fishing jokes about this at some point.

I love that you get distracted by this thought in the midst of ALL THE TERRIBLENESS.

I also went in knowing nothing! Which, as you've just discovered, makes for a VERY DISTRESSING EXPERIENCE. It really is impressive that you've managed to escape spoilers for five months, though. I've spent your last few entries going 'oh no, oh no, chapter nine is barrelling up' and trying very hard not to give anything away.
