12. We were pretending to be lovers but I’m not
pretending anymore and I have to know if you feel the same way
(This prompt kind of doesn’t work with them unless it was an AU or something so I changed it a little, hope you enjoy!)
Jack Merridew was
not used to the fact there was something he couldn’t have.
Since their arrival
on the island, spending time with the other boys proved to be a disadvantage.
Most of the littleuns’ cried for their parents, and then the other boys wouldn’t
want to hunt with him. It made it hard for Jack to get anything done, so when
the freckled child went out into the wilderness to hunt for pigs, he’d have to
go by himself unless Roger riled them up. It wasn’t too big of a matter,
though. Jack liked having things to himself.
So why was this any
different? Jack glared at the blonde who was sleeping next to him. A black robe
covered his body and he didn’t look uncomfortable as a cool breeze shifted over
them. Jack only gave it to him because he kept pouting through the night and
making weird noises, but he was starting to regret the goosebumps covering his
Before too long,
Ralph woke up and stared at the black robe with confusion. He sat up and saw
Jack looking at him from across the way.
“You realize I had
a shirt on?” He mumbled, which was true. Even though it was torn and dirty,
Ralph never took off his white button-up since they landed, which confused Jack
because Ralph didn’t need to keep it on.
“You were making
weird noises. If I didn’t do anything you’d keep doing it, and then-“
“You could have
just left then.” Ralph snickered. He passed the robe along and threw it to Jack’s
side. “Not going on your morning hunt?”
Jack raised an
eyebrow, surprised at the lack of bitterness in that statement. “I’ll go later
when the weather is nicer.”
“But it should be
easier to catch pigs in the morning when they start waking up, right?” Ralph
asked and Jack rolled his eyes. What would the other boy know about hunting
when he had never picked up a stick in his life.
“That’s not how
“Oh, well.” Ralph
shrugged and started to get up. He patted his legs to get some of the sand off
his skin. Jack remembered that they played around in the sand yesterday and
grew red in the face, remembering how he kept accidentally bumping into the
blonde and falling on it, their bodies up pressed up again in child’s play.
Ralph didn’t seem to mind though, he had fun goofing around when he wasn’t so
pent up about the fire.
“I suppose we
should get the others to wake up and get something to eat.” Ralph suggested.
Jack nodded in affirmation before the two of them started making their way on
their usual route. There was a trail on the island that the two of them liked
going on since their first day, and they never changed it. Jack was walking in
front of Ralph, scouting for pigs, just in case.
“We could pick some
berries where we usually do.” Ralph said, and Jack just nodded. It was a couple
of seconds before Ralph sighed.
“Why are you so
“I’m not.” Jack
responded and Ralph just shook his head.
awfully quiet since I woke up and now you won’t even look me in the face.”
walking slower at that, his face bent up at the conflicting emotions he wished
he didn’t have.
“Things have been
different.” Jack said as the two of them neared the bushes. They weren’t sure
what kind of berries they were, Piggy mentioned something about their kind but
both of the boys just shook it off.
“What do you mean?”
Ralph popped one of the berries into his mouth, and Jack grabbed a handful. He
devoured his own share and didn’t care if some of it spilled on his face.
“I mean that I get
these weird feelings whenever I spend time with you. I almost feel sick to the
“Sick?” Suddenly a
worried expression covered Ralph’s face and the redhead groaned.
“You always get so
scared about everything.”
“Well, we don’t have
any medicine, so of course I would feel scared about something like this.”
Ralph hissed. “If you’re sick then you need to go back to the shelter and…”
“I’m fine. I just
said I feel sick, but I’m not really sick.”
“What does that
even mean?” The blonde was starting to get angry now and Jack just
chuckled. How was it so easy to pull this boy’s strings?
“I just think that spending time with you has made me a lot…happier? I don’t
know.” Jack mumbled. He hated being upfront like this but if he didn’t Ralph
would never let Jack out of the shelter. The other boy stared for a couple of
seconds before smiling.
“Oh, why didn’t you
just say that? I’ve been happier too, except when you’re being difficult.”
watched the smile turn more into a look of play. “When have I been difficult?”
IDK. I just wanted to see what would happen if Ralph got cursed like Anna did. With his hair slowly turning white and all that stuff.
There’s been a few WiR/Frozen AUs already and I remember one that had Frozen as a video game. That’s what I tried to do here. Elsa is actually the bad guy of her video game that i would imagine plays out more like The Snow Queen rather than Frozen. Maybe Kristoff is the ‘damsel in distress’ and Anna has to save him?
How she ended up accidentally freezing Ralph’s heart (code), I’m not sure. And yeah, this is kinda an Icebreaker thing I guess. I was thinking that maybe while Elsa was trying to socialize outside of her game with Ralph helping her, something went wrong and she set off an eternal winter inside Game Central Station, putting the whole arcade a risk of completely 'freezing’ up. She goes back to her own game to her castle not knowing what happened and Ralph and Vanellope set off to find her. When they do, things sort of played out like in the movie.
Van: It’s because she struck you, isn’t it? We should have listened to the villagers and stayed away.
Ralph: No, you got it all wrong. She-she didn’t mean anything by it. She was just scared.
Van: Yeah but…what are we going to do now?
Ralph: *sigh* I dunno kid… Let’s just…try and head back to Arendelle for now.
I’m happy with how I did the first two images. The third…it’s okay but not my favorite. His hair is hard to draw from the front.
Don’t know if I’ll press further on into this AU or anything. Just wanted to draw…:x
Things have been quiet for the despairing Space Cadet, but that’s about to change a little.
Ralph had dozed off, having horrible nightmares like usual. Junior had been staying awake as much as possible to wake his dad up to keep him from suffering, but he’s exhausted too, and during a brief lull, he fell asleep as well.
He’s not asleep long before he starts to glitch. There’s a few bursts of red light, before the tiny baby Cy-Bug is replaced with a very large seven year old clad in armor just like the Space Cadets.
Junior now looks very much like a younger version of Ralph, his armor mimics all the details of his father’s, with the only exception being that it bears his name, reading ‘Junior’ in yellow letters, where the Space Cadet’s says 'Ralph’.
Without the contact to the Hivemind, Junior can’t pick up the nightmares from his dad, so he’s able to sleep peacefully, snuggled up next to Ralph.
They’re like this for some time, Junior wakes up first, though it’s a nasty shock when he tries to move and he doesn’t have the proper amount of limbs and he’s much, much bigger. He cries out and yells, “King, King!” as he shuffles around, trying to get used to his new body.
Ralph wakes up immediately, looking around frantically for his son, just to find the human child leaned up against him. He frowns, tilting his head, “…Junior?”
Junior nods, “Yes, King, it’s me!”
Ralph scoots slightly, he had fallen asleep with his back to the wall, he moves his arm so that he’s embracing Junior more, instead of it being stuck behind his son, “Looks like one of the Gray Ones decided to turn you into a human for a while…”
Junior looks up at Ralph, tears in his eyes, “Don’t wanna be human! Wanna be Cy-Bug!”
Ralph sighs and picks up Junior in his arms, holding him close and resting his head against his son’s, “I know…hopefully it won’t last too long…”
Junior sniffles and leans against his dad, this was one of the worst things he could imagine, besides anything happening to his family. How could he protect his family if he was a human? How could he know if his King was unwell without the Hivemind?
