We all knew that I wouldn’t be able to wait and blog about this after Royal Edition’s release, so I’m going to go ahead and do it. I have no self-control and that’s 100% fine. It’s fine. It’s fine. It’s not a secret among my friends that this is my #1 ship in the FFXV fandom. Wow, who would have thought? A sexy man who has his shit together? And a British accent and glasses? And the fact I’m Noctis? No, you know what? Let’s tell it how it is: Ignis fetish. I have an Ignis fetish. And because of that, who better to examine the relationship between these two than me?
I will say that I usually support the canon pairings. This has to be the first Final Fantasy game where I didn’t. No, it’s nothing against Luna. She’s badass in my opinion. But that is another topic for another day. Today’s topic is in regards to the romantic relationship and pairing of Ignis Scientia and Noctis Lucis Caellum. If this bothers you, please use the emergency exit on your browser. It’s that little arrow in the top left corner. For everyone else, keep reading! I’m giving away a Ignis/Noctis doujin at the end of this post!
Fair warning: I’m not going to detail every plot-point in this post. I’m going to focus on certain interactions that were key to me. I might explain some emotion behind them, but I do suggest watching Brotherhood to have a better grasp of their interactions so you can decide for yourself if I’m just a crazy fanboy or if my conspiracy theories are actually true.
