    Summary

    The driver shouted and spun off the road; the guard in the front seat turned back to look at Ignis and Noctis. And then she was crushed, along with the entire front of the car in a smash of glass and snake scales, and the car went spinning and screaming.

    Then, terrible silence.

    For a single heartbeat, Ignis sat dazed in the smashed car with his ears ringing oddly and his head wet (why was it wet?), breathing in air that tasted like metal. He turned his head (why was that hard?) towards Noctis.

    Noct was impossibly angled towards the middle of the car, which had crumpled on top of him from the side. They locked eyes for a single, horrified moment, so that Noct’s white face and wide eyes were the last thing Ignis saw before steel blades stabbed through the car with a rust-throated scream.

    --

    AU where Noctis is attacked by the Marilith at 14, rather than 8, and with different repercussions.
