Deeply Changed chapter 1

Everyone who’s anyone knows that Jack Frost is a trouble maker and since he’s a trouble maker no one thinks he’s serious, or innocent, or honest, or that he has any integrity at all! Far from his fault, it’s just who he is.

This day started just like all the others, but before it even ended Jack found himself being tossed through the wind and slammed into the snow that covered the North Pole. In the distance he could see Santoff Clausen.

"Wind, what was that for?" he asked, pretty angry but he had the right to be. Wind shrieked and whirled around him. "What is up with you?" then the pain hit.

Jack hit the ground with a strangled cry and he curled into a ball. All of his nerves were on fire and his eyesight continued to blur in and out. “Wind!” he screamed, his hands moving to cover his eyes.

All four of the winds swirled around him trying to help him in any way they could which meant they got him onto his feet and tried to push him in a, what seemed random, direction.

Jack stumbled through the snow with pain wracking his entire body. He had lost his staff some where but he didn’t know when that happened and he had no idea what was going on with his body. “H-have to…” he gasped, stumbling to the ground weakly as another wave of pain smothered him. It was hard to breath, each inhale felt like razor blades were slicing the soft tissue from his lungs.

The winter sprite laid in the freezing snow, but it didn’t feel too bad. The cold was beginning to numb his body. His eyes drifted shut as his body spasmed violently from the agony. “B-B-Bunny. Help me.” he whimpered then his sight went black and his body fell limp in the pale white snow.

North was sitting at his desk munching on cookies, his gaze moving over his latest ice sculpture as he searched for any flaws that needed fixing. He had raised the chisel over the delicate ice right as the door slammed open loudly. North’s entire body jerked in shock, effectively breaking a large chunk of ice, that was vital to the entirety of the piece, off the sculpture.

For a moment he stared at the ice before glaring at the yeti. “How many time have I told you to knock!” he yelled even though he wasn’t that angry. Only frustrated that the yetis continued to forget. They all knew that the next time Jack came over North would ask him to fix it so it was all a matter of waiting for him to visit.

The yeti waved its hands and garbled something that only North could understand.

"Vhat did you find?" he asked in surprise, standing.

Phil huffed a sigh and repeated whatever he’d said.

North grumbled and followed Phil down the hall. He stopped dead in his tracks when he saw what laid in the infirmary.

A snow white Pooka.

"Call Bunny." was all the immortal Cossack said as he walked over to look the Pooka over for any wounds.

Bunny was working on preparing for Easter. He was listening to the wind blow through the trees thinking about Jack. The two of them had been ‘going steady’ for the last several months. Their relationship was a good one. They’d been getting to know each other with loving insults and playful pranks, but there was a hard part with their separate species.

It just so happened that giant, six-foot rabbits had instincts that Jack couldn’t understand. Whenever Bunny tried to groom him he squirmed and ran away, obviously uncomfortable. If Bunny nosed his temple he made a face and shook his head. The worst was whenever Bunny chinned Jack. The icy teen would duck away and tell him to stop. While Bunny loved Jack it still hurt to be shoved away when he was just trying to show Jack he loved him. He knew that Jack didn’t fully understand why Bunny did the things he did so he shouldn’t hold it against him, but, if he was completely honest, he kind of did.

Bunny sighed, his ears drooping a little bit and his gaze moved upward. His heart thumped a bit harder when he saw the Northern Lights flickering across the sky. “Great. Jus’ great.” he sighed, standing. He tapped his right foot on the ground three times creating one of his trademark rabbit holes and he dove through.

All too soon the ground above his head opened and cold hair waved over him. He jumped out and began to dart his way to Santoff Clauson in sheer desperation to be warm.

Inside he stood by the fireplace and tried to defrost his feet.

"Bunny, you got here fast." North remarked, walking into the room.

"Well I’m freezing mate." Bunny grumbed.

"Bunny, we have big news. Very big news."

"What’s goin’ on mate?" Bunny asked, instantly getting serious.

"Come vith me. Best if I show rather than tell." he led Bunny to the infirmary. "Bunny, you must keep calm to avoid scaring him."

"Scaring who North?" Bunny asked, trying to stay calm. This ‘calling him while Bunny was preparing for Easter"

North opened the door and waved Bunny inside the room.

Bunny peeked in and the next thing he knew he was beside the bed sniffing a white Pooka, investigating for wounds. “Where did you find ‘im?” he asked softly.

"The yetis found him outside in the snow."

"He’s lucky he’s a winter Pooka. Had he been anything else we’d be burying ‘im." Bunny whispered.

It was shocking how well Bunny was taking this, but that was on the outside. On the inside Bunny was losing it. He wasn’t the last! There was another one, and a doe no less! There were bucks and does. It didn’t matter whether they were female or male, both genders had both bucks and does. Bucks were the ones who impregnated does. The bucks were the more masculine while the does stayed home and took care of the home and kits. Bunny was a buck and he never thought that he would ever see one of his kind ever again, but now there was a doe right in front of him. An unclaimed doe!

The white fluff ball curled up even tighter and whimpered lightly.

Bunny nosed the doe’s temple with a soft rumbling purr. “Sh… You’re okay little kit. I’m here.” he ran a paw through the white fur.

"Bunny, vhat is its gender? Yeti vant to know for medical treatment."

"Male. He a male doe."

North blinked. “That is contradiction.”

Bunny chuckled. “It just means he is able to carry kits. I am a buck so I am more dominant. Gender doesn’t mean much other than it’s just gender.”

North nodded. “Ah… I understand now.” he turend to the yetis and talked to them about the kit’s condition.

Bunny moved away from the tiny Pooka with a sigh. He felt like he was betraying Jack with the thoughts of maybe this new Pooka would be willing to bear his kits. What if this doe could held him have a family again?!

Almost immediately Bunny began to chastise himself. Jack. Think about Jack. Jack Frost. His chosen mate.

Deep down Bunny knew that he was just desperate for another Pooka and that he loved Jack, but instincts are often stronger than rational thought. He needed to protect this tiny ball of fluff with everything he had.

While Bunny had his internal war the white Pooka opened his eyes to reveal icy blue irises.

A low rumbling came from besid Bunny. That sound sent chills down Bunny’s spine. “North, leave the room.” he said slowly.

The giant Cossack looked at him. “Vhat is wrong Bunny?”

"Leave the room. Now."

North almost began to argue, but when he saw Bunny’s expression he merely nodded and emptied the room of all yetis and shut the door behind him.

Bunny moved as slow as he could and lowered himself to the ground, trying to look as small as possible. The kit had gone to his basic instincts that made him feel the need to protect himself from anything and everything threatening. Bunny was quite bigger than the tiny Pooka so towering above him wouldn’t be the best idea.

A snowy blur darted past him and vanished under one of the other infirmary beds.

Bunny turned towards the growling Pooka. “Hey. You’re okay. There is no need to be afraid.” he said, voice soft.

The fluffy kit eyed him with familiar blue eyes.

"No." Bunny whispered. "That’s impossible. I’m seeing things." he whispered to himself.

The Pooka’s eyes narrowed and his growling got louder.

"Jack?" Bunny tried.

Instantly the growling got quieter.

"Jackie, it’s me. Aster. You know me." Bunny kept his voice gentle and kind, trying to get the ball of fluff to trust him.

Slowly the white Pooka crawled towards him, the growling finally stopping.

"Oh Snowflake." Bunny whispered.

He nosed Bunny’s fur, his ears rising slightly.

"Hey Frostbite." Bunny whispered.

The Pooka growled and sank his teeth into Bunny’s shoulder, drawing blood.

Bunny hissed in pain and recoiled.

A soft keening noise came from the Pooka, his eyes full of sadness and apology.

Bunny sat up slowly and put a paw to his wound. “It’s okay Jackie. Doesn’t hurt much.” he leaned against the bed and watched his mate-turned-Pooka. “I really hope you’re Jack, otherwise I’ll be really embarrassed.” he watched the tiny white form for a minute. “Can ya talk?”

"B-Bunny." the Pooka stammered with a voice Bunny knew as well as he knew his own.

"I knew that was you Jackie." he smiled.

Jack crawled to him and laid his head in Bunny’s lap. “‘M body hurts.” he keened.

"Sh…" Bunny murmured, running his paw over Jack’s floppy ears. "I’m gonna find out what happened to ya Jackie."

Jack curled against Bunny, his body trembling slightly.

"You’ll get used to looking like this… At least until we can turn you back into your normal self. Okay?"

Jack nodded weakly. “Don’ understand. Why? How?” he whispered.

"I honestly don’t know Jack. It could have been so many people. Mother Nature, Pitch, Manny, and any other spirit out there with that much power. There are more than you think."

"H-how did you know… I was me?" pain wracked his voice.

"I will always know it’s you Jackie." he chuckled. "You’re my mate." without thinking he nosed Jack’s temple.

A soft purr rumbled out out of Jack’s chest and he moved his head slightly so he was pressed against Bunny’s nose, responding to the affectionate gesture.

Shock jolted through Bunny’s body. Jack had the instincts of a Pooka. He knew that Bunny’s seemingly random touches were so far from random. They were to show love and affection. Bunny’s heart leapt for joy and he held Jack closer.

A soft cry left Jack’s lips. “B-Bunny!” he wheezed.

Instantly the larger Pooka’s hold on him relaxed. “I’m sorry Jack.” once he had relaxed Bunny had a new question. “Why are you hurting?”

"I-I did completely change b-b-bodies." Jack chuckled weakly.

Bunny frowned. Being a Pooka should have been a good experience. Not a painful one. It hurt him to see Jack hurting.

"Bunny? Is all okay?" North asked, opening the door a little bit.

"Yeah North. You can come in now."

The giant Cossack walked in and stared at Jack. “Is he alright?”

"Yeah. Actually… This is Jack."

North did a double take. “Jack?”

Jack looked at North and waved a tiny bit. “Hi N-N-North.”

"Jack. Vhy did you not say that it vas you?"

"I was scared." he whispered, beginning to tremble a tiny bit.

"Sh…" Bunny murmured, stroking his white fur.

Jack struggled to sit up, but ended up collapsing against the grey Pooka. “H-have you found my s-s-s-staff?” he whispered.

"The yetis are searching, but there is a lot of snow to search through."

Jack nodded then winced.

"Are you hungry Jack?" Bunny asked softly.

"Yeah." Jack whispered.

"I vill get you some food." North said, standing up.

While North was doing that Bunny picked Jack up and laid him on one of the medical beds. He took this time to actually see the Pooka as his Jack.

Jack’s fur was fluffy and white. He seemed to be on the verge of entering adulthood according to his size and how fluffy his fur was. All in all, Jack was a beautiful doe.

Bunny smiled softly and nuzzled Jack gently. “I love you Jack.” he murmured.

Jack looked at Bunny with a happy smile. “I love you too Bunny.”

At that moment North decided to walk in with a tray of food. “I brought both of you some food.” he said, setting it down.

Bunny looked at it and saw that it had greens on it. He got a carrot for himself and gave some lettuce to Jack since it wouldn’t hurt him to chew on it.

"How do ve find out who did this to Jack?"

"Isn’t it obvious who did it?" Bunny responded, taking a bite of his carrot.

"I did not think so."

Bunny rolled his eyes. “Pitch.”

"Vould he have the power?"

"Who knows? But who else would do this? Manny would make Jack hurt this bad if he did it."

"This is true." North nodded. "So ve find Pitch."

"We find Pitch." Bunny confirmed.

We Danced

It was about a year after the battle with Pitch and Bunny was sitting in Santoff Clausen with Jack. North had gone to bed with Tooth since she could have tonight off and Sandy was spreading dreams. They were alone, sitting beside the fireplace and neither of them said anything. The room was silent if you didn’t count the bright fire crackling softly inside the fireplace.

Jack was sitting in an armchair munching on a cookie and making different ice sculptures.

Bunny stared at the icy teen with what could only be described as indecision.

"Okay Kangaroo. What’s wrong?" Jack asked, looking at the Pooka.

"Wrong? Nothing’s wrong…" Bunny said slowly.

Jack laughed and rolled his eyes. “Bunny, you can’t lie to me. I know you.”

Bunny’s ears flattened in embarrassment.

Laughter rang around the room. Jack went to Bunny and looked him in the eye. “C’mon Bun-Bun. Don’t be embarrassed. It’s okay. Tell me what’s wrong. Please?” Jack’s blue eyes were wide and pleading.

Bunny looked at Jack and frowned. Those eyes were his kryptonite. “Jack, I can’t tell you.”

"Why not?" Jack asked, sounding like a petulant child.

"It would change everything."

"Everything? Are you saying my hair won’t be white anymore? ‘Cause that’d be nice."

Bunny blinked. “Jack, I love you hair… And… And…”

"Tell me Bunny. I promise I won’t make fun of you. I promise."

"You making fun of me isn’t what I’m worried about mate."

"Come on! Just tell me! Or are you scared, mister ginormous Pooka with martial arts and boomerangs?"

Bunny stayed silent, his ears flat against his skull.

“Are you scared Bunny?”

"O’ course not!" the giant Pooka exclaimed.

"Then just tell me or MiM’s sake!" Jack yelled.

"I love you!" Bunny shouted.

Jack’s eyes widened then, as it hit him what Bunny had said, he smiled gently, running his fingers through the fur on Bunny’s cheeks. “Bunny. It took you long enough. I love you too, ya overgrown rabbit.”

"Really?" Bunny’s ears perked up

"Would I trick you?" Jack grinned.

"Well, you always play tricks." the Pooka pointed out.

"Only one thing will make this night better." Jack smiled.

"What’s that?" Bunny asked, anxiety officially setting in.

"Dance with me." Jack smiled, holding out a hand.

Bunny placed a furred paw in Jack’s freezing hand. “Of course.” he murmured.

The two of them danced across the floor.

That was the second best night of both of their lives.

One and a Half Years Later

Jack flew into the Warren with a huge smile on his face. He was so excited. Bunny had told him he wasn’t allowed in the Warren until Valentine’s day. That had been two weeks ago so he hadn’t seen Bunny in two weeks. As much as Jack hated to admit it he was kind of addicted to the Pooka’s fluffy grey fur.

Jack’s bare feet brushed the prickly grass then he landed, making absolutely no sound. He looked around then blinked as he heard a soft piano. Curious, he followed the sound.

There was a table set up for two people with candles in the center. What made Jack stare in shock were the blue Chinese lanterns hanging from the trees branches. It was beautiful.

"Hey mate." a soft Australian voice said from behind him.

Jack spun around and smiled at Bunny.

"Happy Valentine’s day Snowflake."

Tears welled up in his eyes and he wrapped his arms around Bunny’s chest and held onto him. “H-happy Valentine’s day ‘Roo.” he cried.

"Snowflake, why are you crying? I didn’t think it was that bad."

"I-it’s beautiful." Jack said, trying stop crying.

Bunny chuckled and stroked Jack’s soft hair. “C’mon. I made stew.”

Jack sat down at the table and smiled gently at Bunny. “Thank you Bunny.”

The Pooka chuckled. “No problem Snowflake.” he nosed Jack’s temple as he ladled the soup into the bowls.

After the meal Jack slowly ate his cherry pie and ice cream.

"Jack?" Bunny asked.

"Yeah ‘Roo?" Jack asked, his attention moving to Bunny.

Bunny took a deep breath and got on one knee. His emerald eyes met Jack’s sapphire ones as he held out a ring. “Will you marry me?”

Tears filled Jack’s eyes and he tackled Bunny to the ground. “Yes! Oh god yes Bunny!” Jack held Bunny tightly and kissed his cheek.

The Aussie’s eyes widened. “Oh Jackie.” Bunny tilted Jack’s head up and kissed him passionately.

After a moment Bunny pulled away and touched their foreheads together. “I love you Jack.” his voice was soft and all too honest.

"I love you too Bunny." the icy teen murmured.

Bunny took the ring and slid it onto Jack’s ring finger.

Jack gazed at the band with a smile. The ring was a simple silver band when you first looked at it, but if you looked closer you saw that the entire ring was carved and molded to look like vines twined around each other. The detail of the vines and leaves was astoundingly beautiful. “I love it.” he smiled.

Bunny grinned. “I’m glad you enjoy my work.”

"You made this for me?"

"It wasn’t hard to plan a meal and set up some lanterns, but I needed two weeks to make the ring perfect."

"It’s beautiful. We’ll have to find you something."

"We will, but for right now will you dance with me?"

Jack smiled and nodded. “Of course.”

They stood and spun around on the grass.

For the second time in their relationship they danced with no music, but it was still perfect. There was nothing else they could ever desire. It was all so perfect.

That was the first best night of their lives.

ROTGROTGROTGROTGROTGROTGROTGROTG

Jack and Bunny had been in a relationship for about twenty years now and things could not have been more perfect… Well, for Jack they could have been much more perfect, but Bunny thought things were fine.

North was throwing a New Years party for some of the more famous spirits and everyone had arrived… All, except Jack.

Bunny was panicking. His ears twitched and his leg bounced. Finally he couldn’t take it anymore. He darted out of Santoff Clauson in a desperate attempt to get to his mate.

His first instinct was to check Burgess Lake, but Jack wasn’t there. He darted between the trees calling Jack’s name. There was a very small amount of snow on the ground. In fact, he only ever saw patches of snow and there weren’t a lot.

"Bunny?" asked a male voice.

"Jamie!" Bunny exclaimed, straightening.

Jack’s First Believer stood there, holding a pregnant woman’s hand. “Why are you here in Burgess?”

"North is throwing a party and Jack hasn’t shown up. He’s vanished mate."

Instantly concern filled Jamie’s eyes. “Where else would he be than here, because if you haven’t found him yet you won’t find him here.”

"I don’t know mate." Bunny’s paw twitched as he wished he could defeat this trial with his boomerang. "S-so, who’s this?"

Jamie looked at the woman and chuckled. “Bunny, you know her. This is Pippa.”

"Hey Bunny." Pippa said with a smile. She was no longer a tomboy, her hair was slightly curled, and she was wearing a maternity dress.

"Pippa, you’ve changed."

The girl shrugged lightly.

"I have to go. I’m really worried about Jack."

"Of course." Jamie said. "You guys should visit soon."

"Bye Jamie. Bye Pippa. Congratulations on your kit by the way." Bunny darted off again.

After about ten minutes of searching through the snow of Antarctica a thought dawned on Bunny. It hit him so hard he had no choice but to reprimand himself for being such an idiot. “Aster ya gumby.” Bunny grumbled under his breath. He made a tunnel that would take him to the Warren.

Immediately after the tunnel opened up over his head he bounded out and his ears perked, listening for Jack. He heard slight breathing at about twenty feet away. He moved as fast as he could towards the breathing and practically collapsed beside Jack’s side. “Snowflake?” he asked softly.

Jack gazed up at Bunny, his cheeks flushed. He smiled softly, his eyes lighting up even though they were glazed over. “Bunny.” he whispered happily.

"Jackie, what’s wrong?"

"I shoulda told you." he rasped.

"Told me what Snowflake? You’re not making any sense."

"The earth has been heating up. I-I’m not gonna last much longer." he whispered.

"No Jackie. No. Stop playing tricks. Stop."

Jack took Bunny’s paw in his far too warm grasp. “It’s not a trick ‘Roo.” he breathed, the coloring in his cheeks darkening. Jack coughed, his body spasming. Blood dripped down the corner of his mouth in stark contrast. “H-hold me. Please Aster.”

Bunny scooped Jack up and cradled him close to his body. “Jack. Please don’t leave me.”

"I-I wish I could leave you something to remember me by." Jack whispered, his eyes sharpening a little bit.

"I want you here." Bunny growled.

"Oh Aster. Look at me darling." Jack’s hand moved to Bunny’s cheek forcing their gazes to meet. "I am not leaving you forever. I’ll see you again."

"Stay here Jack. Stay with me. We’ll put you in a freezer."

Jack laughed, his usual, playful laugh. “Oh honey. I wish that could work, but you know as well as I do that that won’t work. My life is tied with the earth and if it’s not cool enough then I can’t be here. Maybe one day winter will come back, but this is the end of the line for me.”

"Damnit Jack! Fight this! Just like you fought Pitch."

"And they say I’m the immortal child." Jack laughed, the sound making Bunny wince. "Just hold me Aster. Please just hold me."

Bunny took a deep breath and nodded. He held Jack close to his body and spoke to him. He told him the story of his kind and what happened to his species. He told him about the first time he met him in 1968. He told him about the moment he first thought of Jack as more than an annoying hellion.

All while Bunny spoke Jack’s struggled to take air into his lungs.

Then Bunny talked about the moment he first realized that he loved Jack. “It was two weeks before I actually told you that I loved you. I stared deep into your sapphire blue eyes which were twinkling with laughter. You had frozen several elves and North tripped over them. You looked at me as if I had helped you and I knew at that moment that I would forever stand by your side. No matter the pranks, the jests, or nicknames. I would forever love you. There was nothing more I wanted than you to know how much you had come to mean to me.”

Bunny smiled and looked down at Jack to see those beautiful eyes covered and a small smile on his face, but his chest was completely still. “Jack?” Bunny whispered. “Jack?” he shook the child. “Oh god no. Jack please!” he begged.

Suddenly so many thoughts ran through his head. Say my name one more time. Smile at me one more time. Look at me one more time. Hug me one more time. Kiss me one more time. Tell me you love me one more time. One. More. Everything.
