FEBRUARY TEST DRIVE MEME

Test Drive Meme




Prompts

Arrival: So you've just arrived in Nyoi-Cho. Congratulations! You must be so excited about having your wish granted. Or maybe you're upset that the result wasn't quite what you expected? If that's the case, then that's too bad! There are no take backs and no redoes, so you're stuck with what you have! Maybe you should have been more careful about how you worded that wish...

Oh well. There's no use in dwelling on it. You're a magi now, and that means adjusting to a whole new lifestyle! Maybe one of the townspeople can help you out.

Only... they're acting a bit strangely, aren't they? They're all too happy to show you around, but there's something unsettling about the way they're behaving. Almost cheerfully dissonant. Any questions about the history of the town are met with blank stares and brief silence, before they plaster a smile onto their faces and change the subject. Any attempts to tell them about your duties as a magi or anything else that relates to the magical will get similar reactions.

Isn't there anyone normal here that you can talk to at all?

Home Improvement: The houses that the magi are given access to really are something, aren't they? There's almost no limit to what they can do! Why don't you create the house of your dreams, or maybe recreate and relive your favorite childhood scenes? Invite some spectators over to marvel!

A Day in the Life: Everyday hero by day, magician by night! You've got a busy day ahead of you and no time to waste! Maybe it's school, or maybe it's work, maybe it's both! Being magical doesn't make you exempt from paying those shopping bills!

Practice makes Perfect: This magi stuff sure looked easier on TV. You don't understand your power and it's frustrating trying to use it in combat when you don't get it. Maybe it's time to just take some time to figure this out. Good thing none of the citizens can see you when you transform! Test out those new skills, cause a little mischief, or be the helping hand someone might need!

Fighting Evil by Moonlight: Things aren't as easy as they looked on TV. Nightmares are tough and there's real danger in there. There are victories... but, some are not as clear cut as others. Is today a successful attempt, or are you on your last legs standing up against an enemy far stronger than yourself? Do you forge on ahead, or do you retreat?

A Corrupted Soul Gem: You neglected to take care of your soul gem, and now you don't feel quite yourself anymore. You feel like you're losing your sense of self - all you seem to be able to focus on is your old regrets and past failures. What's happening to you?

A Dreadful Nightmare: You had an absolutely horrid day. As you drift off to sleep, your mind dwells on all the injustices you've had to endure. In response, your bed swallows you up, and your room shifts into a horrific Nightmarescape. What sort of Nightmare are you? What kind of Nightmarescape do you create? Hopefully your fellow magi can stop you before you cause too much damage!

A Witch's Curse: A Nightmare is nothing in comparison to the horror of a Witch. Perhaps you've been bitten by her sweet kiss, now only able to see the futility in all you do. Perhaps you've just witnessed one of your most beloved friends succumbing to the darkness in their heart, forsaking their wish for a curse - or perhaps you have decided to do it yourself. One thing is for sure... there's no turning back now.

Wildcard: Feel free to use any information from the FAQ or the World Info page to make your own prompt!

i forgot the spoiler warning oops what a great first impression

To be perfectly honest, that was probably not the best way to reunite with a close friend. That could've gone better ... much better.

But all things considered, it also could've gone worse.

He remembers having to turn away from them, growing an intense and burning hatred for the phrases for the greater good and it's a king's duty with every step further towards the Crystal he took. Just because he knew it was what he had to do, that didn't necessarily mean it was something he was eagerly jumping at the gate for. Everything was somewhat hazy after that, he knows he made a choice and looking back on it, it wasn't the best one - what about everyone back home? What about the daemons, the darkness, all of his friends, what was going to happen to them now that he was here? Everyone was relying on him.

He'd thought, once or twice, that this world was some sort of ... bizarre hallucination brought on by his time spent reflecting. It certainly wouldn't be beyond the realm of believability, with all the strange things happening here in Nyoi-Cho. But once he spots the first familiar face in what feels like years, he certainly hopes it's no delusion.

"I was passing it to you."

Obviously.

Noctis is caught off guard first, but he's quick to fall back into old habits, and teasing his friends has always been one of them. Though his sarcastic tone is betrayed by the grin on his face, as he leans further out the window to call out to his apparently dumbstruck friend.

"Your fault for not catching it."

ITS NO WORRIES HELLO how is your day going

It is him.

Time starts moving again, Prompto doesn't even have time to berate him for what is most certainly the worst excuse for throwing a fish at someone he's ever heard in his life. That gets his mouth working again, though all that comes out is a strangled kind of laugh as he pushes himself to his feet and resists everything he has in him not to just tackle his friend and hug him through the window.

Resisting...

Resisting.

Nah. Nope. Not happening. Noct leans further out the window and Prompto is taking advantage of that for what is both the shortest lived and most uncomfortably positioned hug the world has ever known.

"You jerk! I was worried about you!"

oh you know, just taking forever to reply to things, so ... peachy?

It's awkward, and he feels for more than a moment that he's about to be pulled right out of the window to land on his face in the dirt below, but it would be a minor inconvenience considering the situation. Leaving them all behind had been one of the hardest things he'd ever done, forcing himself to look away and take the next step forward for the sake of their entire world, all the while wondering what would become of them and if he'd ever see them again ...

He does wonder if the others are here, if Ignis would pop up from around a corner to scold him for wasting food so casually, if Gladio would follow and lecture him on his poor technique and letting the line snap. Maybe it's a little too much to hope for, but it's just weird for them all to be separated - so he hopes, while holding on almost desperately tight just in case this happens to be a dream and he wakes up all too soon.

"Hey, don't be worried about me, I can handle myself," Noctis answers, trying to sound confident but the way his voice shakes and his fingers curl tight into Prompto's vest give away how he really feels. Being on his own is the worst.

"I was worried about you. Can't even catch a fish being thrown at your head, you know."

WELP THIS CMMENT DIDNT POST WHEN I THOUGHT IT DID

"Y-yeah, well, it's not every day your best bud gets eaten by a giant rock, okay?" He's hugging him tight, face buried against his shoulder. "You can't blame a guy for freaking out a little!"

There's a laugh, giddy and relieved. He holds his friend tighter, his whole body feeling as though he's able to breathe for the first time since everything went down on that train.

"We're fine. We're all fine. I -- that little cat-rat thing showed up and I just -- I wished for you back and, and here you are!"

And he's probably there too.
