Now he's alive again, which only means he still has more to give.

Noctis wanted to say, “I missed you.”
He wanted to say, “I’m sorry.”
He wanted to say, “I love you so much, god.”
But the only words he could find were “You’re here.” And it was wonderful and it was impossible and it was a miracle, and it was worth saying again. “Prom, Prom, you’re here."

When he was six years old, Ignis dreamed of another little boy he’d never met before, one with a cloud of dark hair and startling blue eyes. The boy took his hand with a shy smile, and Ignis squeezed his fingers, and that is where the dream ends.
It’s the most vivid, detailed dream Ignis has ever had, as though it’s a sight he curated carefully for years and years in order to recall at the drop of a hat. Well into adulthood, he still has that dream every now and then; a dream of himself, very small, and that boy, even smaller, and their two hands joined.
It’s one of his most treasured memories, for all that it isn’t really a memory at all.
