My personal theory is, after the original ending, Prompto, Gladiolus, and Ignis inevitably discover the true history of the Lucian Kings, and by extension the Astrals' true nature. So, they send at least one of their own far enough into the past to make sure someone trustworthy (like probably Gentiana) gets this information, and convince him/her to do whatever he/she change fate's course, for whatever genuinely altruistic reason Noct's retinue is able to come up with, setting off an offshoot of the timeline that leads up to the events of Episode Ardyn and the novel.
Another possible explanation I now have, based on newly released info about the "Episode Noctis" part of the novel, is that the original ending actually took place in Noctis' mind during his 10-year crystal stasis, and then he secretly decides to go against Bahamut's plan.
<quote>"He sees himself fulfill the prophecy and die to save the planet."</quote> ~ This supports my new theory of the first ending now not having actually happened.
Crimes against Time[edit source]
Or perhaps now, as per the final version of my Versus XV theory, Bahamut had been abusing the power of the crystal to rewind time 30-50 years back from ME 766, just to keep trolling Noct with a false hope that he could change his fate, but after 13 cycles, the Crystal begins to resist, leading up the alternate Episode Ignis ending in the fourteenth cycle. So with the histories finally spiraling out of Bahamut's control in the fifteenth cycle, where The Dawn of the Future takes place, the Draconian realizes the only way to escape punishment for his crimes is to destroy the world. Like Noct's ever gonna let that happen!
Hello, can I get the link of this novel so I can read online? please, anyone! I do not know about the full story of Final Fantasy XV The Dawn of the future so I would like to read it as much.
Thanks! --Gilver Akashiya 14:07, December 27, 2019 (UTC)
