Day 18: Doing something together
These two have parted ways, but they will meet again in another lifetime to fulfill the promise they made to each other.
Hey VH fans, it’s luminille and heartlesskairi here with another VaniHopu event in mind :D This time we’ll be hosting a day inspired by Easter. It falls a week after Easter Sunday, but this should give everyone time to work on their contributions!
Unlike our first VaniHopu Day, we’d like this one to be more low-key and informal - to fit with a ‘fluffy’ Easter event~ So if you didn’t participate last time, we hope you’ll join in!
Rules are similar to last time: please tag with #vanihopu and #vanihopu easter in the FIRST FIVE tags. We won’t double check with anyone this time, it’s courtesy to read/follow the rules (which have been updated) and if you:
- can’t properly tag at a certain time, wait until you can (after the actual day is OK);
- choose not to properly tag with both #vanihopu and #vanihopu easter, we’ll assume your post wasn’t meant to be seen (by us) and/or not part of this event.
Click here for a list of prompts and suggestions! As always, feel free to do something unrelated to the prompts~ We’re also doing a VaniHopu fanmix collaboration (more info to come), so please suggest 2-3 VH songs! ^^

V-Vanille-san… Were you…
*laughs* You’re the same as always, aren’t you? I’m glad. Well, of course you are, it’s been 5 years yet you and Fang are still…
Hard to believe we’re the same age now, huh? Of course, you’re still 700 years ahead of me. *laughs* What do you mean you bet I’m making all the girls cry!?
Ne, Vanille-san… we can’t be the only ones given a second chance to live again. You and Fang deserve one most out of all of us, you know? I mean, you haven’t forgotten already, have you? We made a promise to see Gran Pulse and Cocoon together yet here I am… facing both of them, alone. You’re cruel, Vanille-san. *laughs*
… It’s really great to talk to you like this again. You know, I’m going to carry a lot of heavy responsibilities soon as the leader of the Academy. People expect great things from us and I hope we can live up to their expectations. The power to shape and protect the future… Hey, I know it’s a bit selfish, but, will you watch over me? As I do it?
Light-san, Serah-san, Sazh-san, Dajh-kun, Snow… They’re all gone, but I’m sure they’re looking for a way to free you both. Until then, can you gives us more time? I’ll get you out of there, with my own power, I promise.
Oh, I wasn’t able to say this at the time but… thank you.
"Uh… really? I… When did I do that?" – Hope Estheim
can we just take a moment to look at the brief, sad look vanille had when hope said he didn’t “remember the promise they made” (even if it was a joke) before she smiled again at him?
Of course I was! I didn’t expect such a giant Eidolon from little Hope!
Hmmm, the stories I’ve heard of Alexander was that he was a fortress-type robot with Holy-based abilities, but Hope’s Alexander is non-elemental.
Eidolons are supposed to reflect the summoner’s personality, but I don’t think Hope would possess any God-like abilities as he is right now, ne?
However, Alexander is also known as a tactical commander and I can believe that Hope would be a great leader for the people someday… if we beat our fate somehow, that is.
A fortress is to protect and a commander is to lead–I’m sure one day, Hope will be the one protecting and leading all of us in the future.
I can’t wait to see what kind of person he grows up to, based on Alexander.
