Work Text:

Lunafreya Nox Fleuret could not save them.

She could not save the common people of Insomnia. She could not save King Regis, or his Council. She could not save the Kingsglaive, and now so few of them live.

When Luna flees the wreckage of Insomnia, she carries the Ring of the Lucii.

She wishes she could crush it with her shoe.

Instead, when she meets Gentiana, Umbra, and Pryna, she asks, "Is there truly nothing else?"

For a long time, Gentiana doesn't answer. Finally, she says, "There is something you could try, but it is dangerous."

Luna stares down at the Ring in her palm and says, "I'm going to die anyway."

"You may earn the enmity of the Astrals this way," Gentiana says.

"Tell me," Luna says. "I will decide."

So Gentiana told a story:

"When Solheim fell, most Reyvateils died, but not all were caught in the slaughter. Some were able to hide their abilities and pass as mortal. One of those was the first Nox Fleuret, the progenitor of your line and the first Oracle. Even Bahamut did not know, in those times, that she was a Reyvateil by birth. By the time it was known that she was a Reyvateil, she had been dead for centuries, and none thought that it mattered. The Towers had fallen. Eos' favored children were powerless, and the blood had been diluted.

"But that blood remains in the line of Nox Fleuret. And if an Oracle of that line were to call for her birthright, none could oppose it."

"How do I call for it?" Luna asks.

And Gentiana knelt down and whispered a Song into her ear.
