I accidentally the game

The beginning of this installment has a lot of allcaps. You have been warned.


y'all, I sat with the End Of Chapter screen up for over an hour while I had A Lot of Feelings.

I don't want it, but I don't trust the autosave enough to just close out which means I have to fucking keep going even though I wanna go lie down some more and be sad for a year or twelve.

THE SCOURGE OF THE STARS, sounds great.

hrrrg I was on a train recently.

Several weeks time skip? fuck you.

FUCK TENEBRAE.



oh, he's not blind forever, just for a while? I'M STILL FUCKING MAD ABOUT IT, OKAY.

MY EMOTIONS ARE STAMPEDING UP AND DOWN THIS TRAIN CAR


Gladio, you piece of shit. I'M NOT EVEN SAYING IT FONDLY RIGHT NOW LIKE USUAL BECAUSE I'M TAKING IT PERSONALLY. I'M STILL HAVING EMOTIONS IT WAS FUCKING FIVE MINUTES AGO. SHUT UP.

GLADIO, YOU FUCK OFF


YOU DO NOT HIT PROMPTO, GLADIO.


YOU ARE SO DYSFUNCTIONAL


UGH


I AM VERY UPSET WITH YOU RIGHT NOW, GLADIO. LIKE I REALISE I'VE BEEN GALLIVANTING ABOUT THE COUNTRYSIDE FOR AGES BUT IN REALITY THIS HAS PROBABLY BEEN LIKE WHAT, A MONTH? PEOPLE HAVE LIMITS, GLADIO, AND THEY'RE LIKELY TO RUN INTO THEM WHEN THEY'RE STUCK ON A TRAIN AND CAN'T EVEN DO ANYTHING BUT THINK ABOUT IT. AT LEAST YOU HAVE YOUR SISTER STILL ALIVE, JESUS CHRIST.


walk around until the train pulls in, ugh, I have to find some specific thing, don't I. I DON'T WANT TO TALK TO ANY OF YOU, I'M ANGRY AND THIS STUPID GAME WON'T JUST LET ME SAVE AND LEAVE




LOOK AT THIS YOU SCARED THIS POOR KID


Newspaper, that is absolutely not what happened, she's not missing, she's fucking dead.


Enormous tree taking places out, yeah, that's cool. Same, tree.



God damn it, I knew I was going to run into you. YEAH YOU BETTER FUCK OFF.



Hm. Rip Ravus, I guess, maybe. Makes a good cover story, at any rate. I don't trust deaths unless they happen on-screen.


Off The Rails was that mission name? Yeah, sounds about right.



I accidentally let myself get talked into starting getting these idiots from the Play Arts -KAI- line.

They are not cheap and I am a fool, but also I love them? EVEN YOU, GLADIO, EVEN IF YOU ARE BEING A STUPID ASSHOLE RIGHT NOW.

YEAH, I AM STILL MAD AT YOU.

I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU HIT PROMPTO.

HE IS SMALL AND TO BE PROTECTED, FUCK YOOOOOUUUU, this way I can wrap them all in blankets.



Listening to the radio some more, but doesn't seem to be any other stories.



Because I am a mature adult, when I was walking up the dining car and saw Ignis sitting with Gladio, I immediately left. No. >:| I'll go look at OTHER THINGS first.


Where is Prompto, I need to make sure he didn't fall over again.


Ah, over there. And upright. Good.



There sure are a lot of broken harmonicas in this world.



I don't wanna go exploring, ugh, I've basically been murdered.


Into the mine shaft, then, I suppose.

Ignis, no.

Why are you putting me in this position. I DOn'T EVEN KNOW WHICH IS THE BETTER ANSWER. Tell him to stay and imply he's completely useless to me while he's blind? Bring him along and spend the entire time hoping to god nothing happens to him because I will literally die in real life? Either way I'm gonna get yelled at by the angry man.

oh, bb. I believe in you. I hope I don't regret this. I also hope you don't mind me dragging you along in the hope that if Gladio (who I am not talking to right now) acts up again you'll verbally kick his ass.


Prompto keeps helping him along, bless you prompto ilu



ooh, fireflies.



TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE ENJOYING MY PAIN FROM CHAPTER 9


Wow, are you really giving me shit for fighting things a little ways off from our blind party member? Sure, okay, let me bring them over so he can get murdered, that's a speCTACULAR FUCKING IDEA. EXACTLY WHAT I NEED. MORE DEAD PEOPLE.


Of course two minutes later he's walked off (he being Gladio) and it's just me, Ignis, and Prompto on these stairs.



It's been raining this entire time and yet I am only now comprehending that we are not in a cave.



We're camping and Gladio's being a loser. Good. Sit over there. AND IF YOU THINK FOR A SECOND THAT WE'RE HAVING NOODLES, YOU CAN JUST THINK AGAIN, BUCKO. COLD TINNED FOOD FOR EVERYONE.


It's so unfair that Ignis is still the best at keeping up with me, though I understand Prompto obviously deliberately trailing behind him. Someone's gotta make sure he is OK.


HOW DOES IGNIS KNOW IT'S TIME TO TURN ON THE LIGHTS

PROMPTO ALSO WOULD LIKE TO KNOW

Ignis can sense the rotation of the planet. He can smell the creeping of shadow.


Okay, it's getting blatant. I've only been link-striking with Prompto down here. Coincidence?


DON'T YELL AT ME TO SLOW DOWN WHEN IGNIS AND PROMPTO HAVE KEPT UP JUST FINE. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE THREE MILES BEHIND ME THEN MOVE YOURSELF.

I thought this machine looked important when I passed it earlier...

We got the power? WE GOT THE TOUCH?

Seriously, though, you know how NOT to make a depressed person feel better? Scream at them for it.


Oh my GOD WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME, GLADIO. ALL YOU'VE BEEN DOING IS YELLING AT ME TO DO THIS SHIT AND NOW THAT I'M ABOUT TO YOU WANT TO HAVE A HEART TO HEART? WHAT DOES IT EVEN FUCKING MATTER, IT HAS TO BE DONE OR AT LEAST ATTEMPTED.

JECCA IS STILL ANGRY WITH YOU.

JECCA IS, PROBABLY BECAUSE OF BEING A CAPITAL-D DEPRESSED PERSON WITH SOME BAD LIFE EXPERIENCES RELATED TO IT, TAKING YOUR ATROCIOUS BEHAVIOR RATHER PERSONALLY.

JECCA IS CHOOSING "SHOW FRUSTRATION," EVEN THOUGH IT WILL PROBABLY JUST GET POOR NOCT YELLED AT AGAIN.

YO YOU DON'T GET TO PICK THIS FIGHT A-FUCKING-GAIN AND THEN JUST WALK OFF AS SOON AS NOCT FINALLY HAS A GODDAMN REACTION

Why are you being such a jerk?!


Something stinks? Willing to place money on Malboro.

Oh LOTS of fireflies here by the tomb. Along with some eggs or something?

Yeah, eggs.

CALLED IT. I TOTALLY CALLED IT.



WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO KILL THIS THING, THOUGH?!


Oh, the blind guy needed to throw some fire down its throat.

How many are we up to now, anyway? That was a lot spinning around us just now.


I have disappointed Ignis with my grumping. I am sorry, Ignis. :(

Nooo I wanted to believe he'd be able to see again somehow.

I would never make you leave. :(((

Gladio gives no shits because he is still being a shit.

THANK you, Prompto.

Also thank you, Ignis. ;_; Would that I could give you a hug.


I'm glad Prompto and Ignis and Noct are still friends, but I am really pissed off that Gladio has apparently decided to be this generation's Cid.


IDK where he goes off to when we sleep in the train.



OH MY GOD, STOP STALKING M-- no wait don't stop stalking me, I need to kill you and that's easier to do if you're nearby

Also he just like... Walked into the side of the train? What?

I hate.


Just thought, do you not get that scene at all if you opt to leave Ignis behind when you go down to the mine? Or does he come with you regardless?


Aaand that was chapter 10.

Are all the remaining chapters short like this?


This is barely worth posting by itself. Continuing on, then.


CHAPTER 11

oh shit I'm gonna HAVE to be the one driving from now on, aren't I? Oh no, that poor car.

Yeah, Ignis, no, what happened isn't your fault. I'm with Noct and just glad you're still here.

How do you go on reconnaissance on a train.

I cannot BELIEVE they are only just noticing the shorter days. Do none of you at all wear a watch or own any sort of timepiece??


Careful, Prompto!

What the hell are we even looking at? Are those... clouds?

JESUS WHAT

W H A T

ARE YOU DOING HERE

I MEAN LITERALLY WHAT ARE YOU DOING

HOW ARE YOU DOING IT


Are we hallucinating somehow? Dreaming? Because this isn't how Ardyn usually talks at ALL, despite it being his voice ("buddy?" That's a Prompto word) and I don't like the idea of blindly attacking when my mind has just come up with half a million what-ifs.

If it IS somehow Ardyn, it is also somehow not the one I've been encountering, I am sure of that. Hallucination, dream, snow clouds means it's not Diabolos (he almost never shows up, anyway)... Something Luna somehow caused when she tried to heal(?) him after he stabbed her?

We DID see him walk off camera on a way that could only have ended with him running into a train car, but??

Guess I can't really do anything else, though. Right, well. Pursue, it is.


...

There is NO WAY this is Ardyn. He could very well be in this train, but this is not him talking. Oh, Noct, what are we about to do?!

I don't like this. I don't, I'm not sure what's going on, but that really, really talks like Prompto, and I really don't want to hurt him. Promptos are for protecting, not for punching. PROMPTOS HAVE ENOUGH SELF-ESTEEM ISSUES WITHOUT THEIR BFF TRYING TO KILL THEM. I feel very trapped and anxious right now.

thank goodness the train stopped oh geez I didn't like that at all, that was way too stressful.


Am I reading this loading screen correctly that the snow clouds are because they killed Shiva? As if I needed another reason to hate the Empire?!

CAN'T HELP BUT NOTICE PROMPTO IS THE ONE IN THIS LITTLE AREA WITH ME


hmm, though he had time to check in with Ignis and Gladio. I don't fucking know.

WTF WINDOWS EXPLODING


yeah, I'm pretty sure I'm about to get my first Game Over here trying to guard this train.

No, I made it. I got stuck on a robot and couldn't get to the tank at first, but WE MADE IT BARELY.

Blowing up dropships? SWEET REVENGE.


OH NO HE'S BACK (??? MAYBE?!?) OR IS IT ANOTHER I DON'T

WHAT???! oh my god I can't deal with this GAME what is HAPPENING NO


PROMPTO IS OBVIOUSLY FINE (RIGHT?!?!) BECAUSE THAT WAS TOO WEAK TO BE A DEATH SCENE BUT ALSO OH MY GOD WHAT IS HAPPENING



WHAT DO YOU MEAN CHAPTER TWELVE





fucking fuck fucking fucking you can't just fucking break time like that that what I where the hell is prompto I???? WE HAVE TO GO FIND HIM???

Oh my god, Noct, honey, you do not deserve this shit, Ignis, thank you for being a calm and reasonable person and not yelling at him for being upset

I DON'T WANNA MAKE MY WAY TO GLADIO I swear if he starts giving me shit over this I am throwing this entire console out the window



Leviathan! Sweetie! *blows a kiss*


Gladio, I'm not fucking kidding about not giving me shit, Jecca actually can't handle it right now and Noct has had a bad enough day already, so just.

Aranea!


oh

Prompto isn't here to help Ignis


Because I threw him off a fucking moving train


Ah, I'm really glad she got out! Search and rescue, eh? Of... what, though, haha. Is it profitable to S&R people? Well, probably, actually, with this darkness and the daemons.

Aranea, please go find Prompto. You can have literally all my gil.


I'm so happy Biggs and Wedge get to be engineers.


Find woman and clothing, right.


"Lady A," haha.

What a mess, oh man...


Huh, guess Ravus really did get chopped. Mixed feelings.



Daemons come from the damn empire? Like, as their actual starting point?? Or just because they all got brought there because those people are idiots?


I don't wanna hear about Luna. I mean, I do, but. THAT WOUND IS STILL VERY FRESH. ALSO ATTACKING PROMPTO AND LOSING HIM HAS REALLY MESSED ME UP.



What even is a "time switch" how does it work can we... use it to save people? Save Luna? Prevent Ignis from losing his sight? STOP OURSELVES FROM THROWING PROMPTO OFF THE TRAIN, OH GOD I cant deal with this game anymore



Ah, here's the - wait, Aranea just said he was dead and I actually trust her word on these things, but this Retainer is saying...


I guess it's good he cared for his sister, but also seriously what and I still don't like him.


Okay, sooo... who did they kill? Unless she means I gotta find his corpse. Or have they just not actually killed him yet, I don't know.


I didn't even see Pryna, though?! That's not fair, we didn't even get to meet her at all....! Now I feel bad for not having summoned Umbra yet.



there aren't going to even be any pictures now, WHY IS EVERYTHING IN THIS GAME INTENT ON CRUSHING MY HEART? WHAT HAS HAPPENED? WHY DID I EVER AGREE TO ANY OF THIS


Why did they really take the crystal, what are they doing with it? Don't do experiments on the crystal, that never ends well.


CHILD PLEASE DON'T MAKE NOCT CRY HE'S HAD ENOUGH


oh, Gentiana's eyes do open. I ... am not sure why that surprises me.


Uh, who is this kid, was that supposed to be her flashback, or just some random exposition? I'm completely certain I'm overthinking this interaction, but it was kinda weird.


I hope Prompto is okay somehow.



eavesdropping on all these people is seriously depressing


Sania's on the radio!


OKAY BUT I SPENT THE ENTIREY OF SATURDAY (dance recital day) JUST REALLY WORRIED ABOUT FICTIONAL CHARACTERS

I'M A MESS


I DON'T WANNA GET BACK ON THE TRAIN I HAVE TO GO BAAACK *sobs*



Snowing...


We didn't find warmer clothes.



Oh, the car is on this train.

Car, I fucked up. At least you won't judge me.



MT going nuts, eh?



Who's on the phone?


Thought: if the phrase is 'cold, dead body,' when Shiva dies, well, she's already ice. Does her corpse warm up....?


that looks cold


I'm sorry we didn't find warmer clothing, Noct.



Of course Ignis had to learn how to fight while he can't see, I can't believe I didn't suspect something awful was about to happen.



N O

NOT AGAIN


LET ME BACK OUTSIDE TO FREEZE TO DEATH



I guess i can freeze to death inside, instead, that's fine i'm not doing this again


oh, this one talks like ardyn

what is happening to us? ;__;


Wait, Ignis was behind us, though, wasn't he?


W-what? Is that Gentiana.


It is.


yo what



Fuck off, Ravus. I don't care if this is a flashback, you have done enough.



Guess Ignis got ahead of us somehow. Probably while we were in crazytown.


EVERYTHING HURTS AND NOTHING WILL EVER BE GOOD AGAIN.



FUCKING NO WHY WON'T YOU GO AWAY

YOU DON'T HAVE FEELINGS

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH PROMPTO

WHAT DO YOU MEAN "HE" IN QUOTES

...PROMPTO WAS REAL, RIGHT?!

I'M LIKE TWO MINUTES FROM LOSING IT COMPLETELY

I guess I should just unpause, maybe we can kill him, even if he's claiming he's immortal.


WHAT IS THIS GUY

AND WHAT DID HE JUST DO WITH THAT BUTTON-THINGY.

OH NO CHAPTER 13



This is getting long, and the next bit is longer. Two-parter, then.
