WELCOME TO THE VALE . . .
Just south of Paris lies a valley unlike any other, home to the world’s most beloved fairytale characters and shrouded by magic and darkness. Avalon Vale, more commonly known by its inhabitants as the vale, is situated south of the Loire river. The large valley is surrounded by two towering forests and a magical barrier spell that keeps the residents of the vale in—as well as any curious souls out.
To those on the outside, the valley appears as nothing more than a hazardous trek through a wild forest, a risk simply not worth taking. However, inside the vale, life for many of the villagers is a calm, simple one, unaware of how time stands still for them while the world outside forges on ahead. Everyone in the valley is free to live their life how they please, even where they please, so long as they remain within the confines of the barrier. On countless occasions, villagers have attempted to venture beyond the forest and river surrounding their home, but no matter how hard they try or well they prepare the hopeful travelers always seem to end up right back where they started.
Life for each resident differs, while some wander the valley with no memories of who they were before or the powers they might even possess, others retain that knowledge and even use it to try and help them solve the mystery at hand. However, what nobody in Avalon Vale can recall is how they came to be there and more importantly who caused it all?
It remains to be seen if or when the truth will reveal itself…

“…we filmed the video for the ending credits in Hawaii. There are fields of flowers on both sides of the road, and the colors —yellow & white— are the same as the flowers in Aerith’s Church.”

Ok, midway thru ep 6 of Shadow and Bone. Alina/Mal is clearly the goal. Buuuttt, I might be a little into Alina/Kirigan. Like more than just a tad. but that maybe because i’ve had a major celebrity crush on Ben Barnes since Prince Caspian, and tbh, the way they styled him in Shadow and Bone is kinda Capian-ish, like he really does look like a grown up Caspian.
BUT, besides all that. The REAL OTP of the series so far is Nina/Matthias!! 😍 Enemies to lovers? Yes, pls! There’s only one bed and we have to huddle together naked to stay warm? “You’re not special or different from other men-” *stares at abs* The look on his face after she calls him a big idiot in his native language! Ahahaha, be still my little fanfic loving heart.

After three years, I finally got to the end of Final Fantasy XV....and wow. That was an ending worth waiting for. It was incredible on so many levels--amazing visuals, top-notch dialogue, those freaking amazing outfits, the summon cutscenes, picking one of the photos that Prompto took, that end cutscene with Luna, "Stand By Me" in the end credits--ugh, there's just too much to bring up, but a couple of things that stood out to me in particular:
First of all, I absolutely loved how Noctis' character development came full-circle at the end, from wayward son afraid of what the throne did to his father to the One True King, ready to accept the cost of returning the land to the light. We've watched him go from fearful to confident, from selfish to selfless. And it's all exemplified in the moment where he says, "Off my chair, jester. The king sits there." I just--I lost it. I got CHILLS. Seriously, can I steal that line???
And the last campfire cutscene? Absolutely BRILLIANT. I cannot get over how well it's done. It's extremely emotional, but in an extremely quiet, hushed way. Most of the scene is spent in heavy silence, full of stops and starts, eons-long pauses, the tension so tangible you could cut it with a knife. The reason that this is so effective is that this is not a mood we associate with these characters. The boys have spent most of the game in constant back-and-forth banter, or in more fraught moments, emotional outbursts, but never just silence, everyone at a loss for words. It's a beautiful subversion of expectations--this feels like the scene where Noct should be giving his big speech about how much his friends mean to him, his whole my-friends-are-my-power a la Sora. Heck, that's what Noct feels like he should be doing, but that's not what happens. He just can't. (Ray Chase's voice acting here is TOP NOTCH, by the way.) There isn't enough time or words in the world to say what he wants to say. He can't even figure out what he wants to say. And while he struggles, his friends silently break down around him in their own way. Ignis goes still, Gladio gets a bit fidgety. Prompto in particular broke me, once again due to how out of character it seems--the pep is gone, the chattiness is gone. Prompto, at a loss for words? Prompto? Gladio and Ignis at least have a few lines, but you know how many Prompto has? One. One singular line. He can't even look at Noct in this moment, having to hide his face. Throughout the scene, you literally watch him physically crumple in on himself. I think it exemplifies both the nature of Prompto's character, his peppiness and extraversion a front to hide his insecurities, and the nature of his friendship with Noctis. The other two are losing their prince, their charge, perhaps a younger brother--but Prompto is losing his best friend. It's absolutely heartbreaking to watch, but so well done.
We're expecting at least one good, meaningful line at the end of all this, one that we could frame on a wall or make into an iPhone wallpaper. But once again, that's not what we get. In the end, all Noctis can say is, "You guys are the best." And it's not enough. We know it, Noctis knows it, Ignis, Gladio, and Prompto know it. We've watched these characters and the bonds they've formed with each other. We know what they mean to each other, and so do they, but it can't be put into words. And it's so, so human. It feels real because it's incomplete. Noctis isn't leaving everything tied-up with a bow, he's leaving loose ends--just like all of us will.
Anyway, thanks for putting up with my rambling, hehe.
(Also, random thought--does Ardyn call to mind Lauriam from KHUX to anyone? The hat? The hair? The demeanor? No? Just me?)
