THE DEVIL IS A WOMAN
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (2001)
Lightis AU where Noct has to show the Cocoon Ambassador around Lucis but they hate each other - have done so since they met as children in the Academy (Suzaku Peristylium?) because of clashing ideals. She’s super studious and ambitious—he’s not so they’re constantly bickering. Anyway, on her first official visit to Lucis as an ambassador he’s forced to play tour guide. Only he decides to prank her and tells her they’re going to go skiing. Unbeknownst to her, it’s a monster nesting ground. He plans on leaving her there just to scare the shit out of her…except the ALPHA suddenly comes out to play and he has to go rescue her before her death is interpreted as an act of hostility and war.
And then this happens…
But yeah, he rescues her and eventually it becomes a bedtime story they tell their daughter like
“Daddy did you really leave mommy up there to get eaten?”
"Yes he did, and if it wasn’t for him I still would have had my mother’s pendant” says Light.
"Hey I resent that. I got you a new one didn’t I?"
"New one?" Light scoffs, amidst their seven-year old’s giggles. “You gave me your one as a replacement and I can’t even wear it because I’m allergic to silver.”
"OF ALL THE UNGRATEFUL—"
And while they bicker their kid falls asleep to it—-that’s the real bedtime story for her hahah
