Final Fantasy 7/Bravely Default fusion

Last week on my tumblr, I asked for femslash drabble prompts.
Edmondia responded with “I want to say cute bitties Agnes/Olivia but I also don’t want spoilers and haven’t started chapter five yet.”
It is not quite a drabble, but nevertheless. Agnès/Olivia, pregame, a total lack of spoilers. Just adorable teen girls with crushes and a slice of time to themselves.( Crystal-Bright )
Trigger warnings: Suicide ideation, suicide attempt, self-harm, blood, morbid imagery, forced hospitalization. (If I missed any, let me know please! Take care of yourselves, darlings!)

Spoilers for Vampire Subquest in Bravely Default
The Doctor always works to protect humanity - but every now and then, he finds a fascinating, distracting person. DeRosso/Yulyana subtext
But in this case those rules backfire - the characters know how those stories go too, and that's what get used against them. Because human beings /believe/ in stories, more than we believe in facts. Human beings need narrative, and we tend to place ourselves in the slot of Chosen One at the beginning of our Hero's Joureny. At worst, we'll be a contributor the Great Cause. Everyone wants to be important, and any politician or propagandist knows it and knows how to manipulate it.
Frame the facts in the right narrative, and you can get people to believe whatever you want. They'll maintain it themselves, even, once they're invested in it, and ignore any possible flaws in the story. Wonder how politicians can take the exact same facts and get completely different responses out of them? It's because they're fitting the information into different narrative contexts. They may even believe it whole heartedly, because they have their own stories too, but not always. Sometimes it's just manipulation, knowing the narratives that get the right response out of people.
Bravely Default takes the fantasy narrative and turns it against itself, takes the human need for the Hero's Quest and shows how easily it can be manipulated. Human beings need stories, but it's very important to know who's telling the tale.
