So this place wasn't an illusion. Cool. It was cool, it was fine. It was hard, some mornings, to remember what this place truly was, and there were times he looked over his shoulder, expecting to see Noctis putting him down for what he was. But it was fine. He was making friends that helped, and he had his camera, and he was safe from Ardyn. He was healing. Things were settling up to a new sort of normal. He missed his friends, of course. Missed Iggy's cooking and Gladio's presence in general, and most of all he missed Noctis.

Prompto was taking photos of the Pride celebrations going on in one of the major cities, and the whole thing just made him miss his best friend all the more. A celebration for those who were free to love who they loved... It was nice. He had never spoken on his feelings for Noct - why would he? It wasn't like he would have had a chance with him, even before...well, even before finding out what he really was. But this, the rainbows on every corner, the general point of the celebration... it was nice to feel seen in this way.

And he had to admit, the rainbow capes on the knights were just cool. He kind of wanted a rainbow cape for himself. Over by the fountain in the square, one of the knights - big and blond, kind of reminded him of a blond Gladio, really - was stopping to watch the crowd. The light breeze, the spray of the water from the fountain, it gave him an idea. So Prompto strode right up to the night with a big, stupid grin on his face. "Hey! I'm Prompto, I'm taking pics of the event," he started, holding up his camera for the knight to see. "Was just hoping you could do me a favor? I got this real cool idea for a shot, if I can get you to stand over on the fountain edge and look off all dramatic-like."

Looking back, it was funny that Vane had worried about how his relationship with Lancey would be seen in Pandora. Whether it would cause them trouble as members of the knights, whether it would cause them any difficulties in their lives here, that kind of thing. It didn't last long though, as he quickly learned that the people around were very accepting of such things.

Now, there was an entire month-long festival going on celebrating exactly that. Vane was more than thrilled about it and was making a point to engage in the festivities as much as humanly possible. He still had a job to do, of course. Security had to be tight during events like these to prevent any incidents from happening, though thankfully things had been peaceful so far, with only the occasional brawl breaking out and being quickly dealt with.

Vane was watching over the square that day, proudly wearing the rainbow cape that the knights had been instructed to wear during the event. His halberd, unfortunately, was a little too big and cumbersome to carry around with the cape on his back so instead he carried a sword sheathed at his waist.

A man he didn't recognize approached him, likely just a tourist who was around for the festivity. He looked like a pretty lively person, though the request he made left Vane at a bit of a loss.

"Huh?" he said, taken aback. "Uh... sure! I don't mind!" He bounced back with an energetic smile.

He walked over to the fountain, as instructed, but when it came to "looking off all dramatic-like", Vane blanked. What kind of pose should he go for? Maybe with his sword over his shoulder? Or maybe pointing it towards the sky? Maybe planted on the ground?

He couldn't help but feel like he was making this much harder than it needed to be.

Vane looked back at the man, figuring it was probably easier to just ask. "So... what kind of pose do you have in mind?"

The knight was willing to pose for him, and this was the best news Prompto could have been given. Sweet photos incoming! It was always such a great feeling to have an idea for a shot that would be fantastic and to actually be able to do said photo. Noctis had always been happy to oblige Prom's photographer ideas, but sometimes his ideas just... were too out there to really properly capture, or there simply wasn't time, or other things just got in the way. Things always had a way of going wrong, back home. Here too, probably, he just hadn't been around long enough to see it for himself yet.

At the knight's question, Prompto took a moment to consider. All he really needed was something that would be sure to leave the cape free to be caught by the breeze that was fairly steady that day. So, "Nothing too involved, really, just so long as you're facing the left. Maybe have your hand on your sword's hilt? Whatever feels natural, really."

Nothing too involved. All right, that was simple enough to do. Vane did as he was told, standing tall and proud in front of the fountain with a hand on the hilt of his sword, looking off to the side and letting the wind make his cape flutter.

"Is this good?" he asked as he held his pose, waiting for further instructions or for to be allowed to break out of the pose.

Prompto snapped a few quick shots, crouching down to get a better angle that put the knight in better lighting. Springing back to his feet, he gave the knight a broad grin and a thumbs up. "Perfect, thanks, dude!"

Turning the camera to the view picture mode, he flipped through the shots he'd gotten, settling on the one he liked best. The breeze had caught a good angle on the cape, the light had caught the water spray and thrown even more rainbows into the air around him. It was perfect. Bounding over to the knight, Prompto held the camera up for him to see the shot for himself. "Wanna see for yourself?"

Vane tried to not look towards the photographer, doing his best to not ruin the pictures, but it sure made him curious about what the guy was doing. He'd never met someone who did these things for a living. Photography wasn't really a thing in Feendrache, Vane only really came to learn of it in Pandora, so actually having his photo taken like this was both exciting and a little weird.

When he was told it was done with, Vane immediately turned to face the guy, who came over to ask if he wanted to see how it looked. "Of course!" he replied, eagerly accepting the camera. "Let's see..."

The picture he saw was really stunning. Vane's eyes went wide open as he looked at how the photo perfectly captured the fluttering of his cape in the breeze, as well the light reflected in the water from the fountain making additional rainbows, along with making the scene look sparkly.

"Whoa! This looks amazing!" Vane laughed, just barely keeping himself from bouncing in place. "I really gotta show this to Lancey! Can I get any copies of it?"

Well, well, well. Look what the cat metaphorical and/or literal god dragged in.
Went to school for 14 years just to never use 80% of of what they taught me. Crazy.
