somewhere out there there’s an alternate universe where matt groening’s highly popular let’s play series, the SIMpsons - dedicated to simulating dysfunctional white-bread american families in even the most improbable game universes - has just created a family with a son who coincidentally resembles classic cartoon horrorterror, borth sampson
but the thing is
he’s just like borth. toe to tip, this is a borth. take it to the bank, boys, this one’s just like borth. the monster factory creators, griffin & justin mcelroy, turn over their cartoon to matt groening, saying, “he’s just better at borth than us.”
My! I finally convinced my most wonderful and dearest brother Atlas-White to watch Danny Phantom with me, and he promptly took revenge by making me ship Danny/Vlad which I swore I would never do.
So I tossed back a great idea for an AU because I love coming up with AUs and basically it’s like this: role reversal AU.
Vlad, after becoming half ghost, initially takes a similar course as in canon, going through a very dark time of overshadowing people and stealing to meet his own ends, brooding and seething and plotting his revenge. At length, he becomes ridiculously rich– but he’s still ridiculously alone. Discovering that Jack and Maddie have had two children is an eye opening epiphany for him; his own life is being wasted on bitterness. The simple act of letting go of the Fentons turns his whole life around, shedding vengeance in favor of philanthropy and becoming mayor of Amity Park through legitimate means.
Then there’s Danny– a troubled youth who lashes out constantly because that’s the only way to get attention from his ghost obsessed parents. Though seventeen and nearing the end of high school, he’s constantly flirting with getting expelled, and only hangs on because of how hard Jas tries to help keep him straight. Bitter over the lack of love he gets, the demands of his chores, his inability to match pace with his genius sister, his constant bullying, everything, he makes habits of vandalism and petty theft to keep himself occupied.
Of course, it doesn’t do a ton of good. After gaining ghost powers, Danny becomes somehow a hundred times worse; now he can get away with virtually anything. This compounds with the fact that his parents, who already don’t pay him enough mind, would dissect him to find out how he ticks, if they ever knew his secret.
“That douchebag never made you cum?” He nodded his head, he had the answer now.
She shook her head blushing so much that she felt her body temperature going up. She looked down at her hands. She didn’t want to look at him, having these kinds of conversations with him was unnerving.
“What an asshole.” He chuckled and she smiled shyly. “That’s the best part.”
Daryl pulled her chin up and looked right into her eyes.
“That’s my favorite part Carol.” He said drawing the words out.
He wouldn’t let her look away. Her face was burning, and her heart was pounding in her chest.
“Then we have a lot of making up to do.” He whispered. “Aint nothing better in this whole world. You’re so beautiful when you come.”
And then he kissed her softly.
“This is gonna be fun. I promise.” He said.
“I don’t need you for that, I can do it myself if I want that.” She said quickly, stuttering, he had totally thrown her off by what he just said. “That didn’t come out like I wanted.” She looked down shaking her head. “I didn’t mean, dammit, I don’t know what I meant.”
“Just break up with B.O.B.” He said.
“Yeah, you know Battery Operated Boyfriend. ” He said
She laughed full on, like he hadn’t heard her laugh in a long time. For a few months, he was happy it was him that made her laugh like that.
“There is no B.O.B.” She said in between laughing.
“Sure there isn’t.” he laughed. “B.O.B has to go, it’s my job now, and I love my job.” He took her hands and kissed her fingertips looking up at her through his bangs. He was adorable, but dangerous, very, very dangerous.
He totally owned her when they were in bed. And worse he knew it.
i was thinking of a stony vocalist/band au mainly because doing duets is not easy at a professional lmao
mostly inspired by how my vocal coach said while practicing a duet, “music is not simply black and white notes on a sheet. it’s an emotional connection between you and your partner. beautiful relationships make beautiful music while partners in discord fail.”
I’ve just finished a drawing of Undyne from Steamtale, an AU created by my dearest tumblr-sister @ask-snipers-crew | @banana-teatime i just enjoy this au so much and wish to see more about it, i hope you like it sis, sorry if it didn’t turn out that good.
Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles (Bomb) a prequel to the animated flick Justice League: Gods and Monsters, which I also recommend, BTW. Where Hernan has a difficult choice to make when disaster strikes Metropolis. Oh, and yes, this is an alternate universe.
Woo, bt y’all forgot bout this one! Well we’re still doing it, don’t worry! Here’s my latest chapter, Chapter 11. To go back and read the previous ones click HEREto get to @little-red-2404 ‘s masterlist.Anyway here’s the new chapter, hope you all enjoy!
grumbled in the early morning light that filtered in through the
window, it had woken him up every morning for the past three days, shining in
with almost laser like precision and hitting him right in his eyes,
no matter where he chose to sleep in the small room he shared with
Lina in the lower levels of Star Labs. Last night Lina had been
particularly restless, and had invited him to sleep in the bed with
her to help her sleep, so he’d at least gotten to sleep on a real
bed for the first time in weeks, but that damn sunlight had still
found him in the end.
sat up, his eyes squeezed shut until he’d moved out of the sun’s
path, “Lina, are you awa-” he stopped mid sentence as he turned
to Lina’s side of the bed, and found it empty and cool to the
touch. She was gone, and had been for a while now if the cool sheets
were anything to go by. A knot of panic twisted his stomach, his mind
thinking of all the places she could have gone and calculating where
he should start looking for her first. It wasn’t until he got out
of bed and began looking for his shoes that he saw the text message
on his phone. Amazingly their earth 2 phones still worked here, which
had come in handy when Francisco had needed something but hadn’t
wanted to leave Lina’s side. He took a calming breath and opened
the message, nearly throwing his phone by the end of it.
message read simply that Lina had woken up very early and decided to
explore the facility, which was all well and good accept she was
alone. Francisco’s logical side was all but gone at this point when
it came to Lina, sure she was an adult, equipped with a formidable
set of self defense skills, but what did that matter? He was the
reason she was here, he was part of what was causing her illness, he
was responsible for her! And she was just going to wander off while
he was sleeping? He grumbled to himself as he ran a brush through his
hair, tying it up in a messy bun before heading off to find her, sans
shoes and without changing clothes, making him look adorably
bedraggled and cranky when he entered one of the empty rooms near the
cortex to find Lina, Eve, and Cisco chatting around a fold out table.
man,” Cisco chuckled when he spotted his double in the doorway,
“you look like you woke up on the wrong side of the bed this
shot him a scathing look before turning his eyes to Lina, “You
should have woken me,” he told her, beginning the lecture he’d
planned out in his head on his way up, but as his still semi-tired
eyes actually took in Lina’s appearance, he stopped, caught off
guard by the sunny smile on her face.
thought you could use the rest,” Lina said in lieu of an apology,
“but Francisco look,” she held up a plastic plate with a stack of
waffles on it, “Cisco made us waffles!” she grinned at him like a
little kid, “I messaged them from the cortex to see if they were
awake to, and Cisco thought it would be nice to make us all
breakfast, and I can’t even tell you when the last time I had fresh
made waffles was,” she stood up, bringing the plate over to him,
“they’re still warm and everything,” she handed Francisco the
plate, moving to his side to put and arm around his back, “come sit
down, I’ll get you some coffee while you eat.”
let himself be lead to Lina’s vacated seat, setting the plate down
on the table as he watched Lina move past him to a coffee pot off to
the side of the room. He felt a small smile come to his lips as he
watched her, she seemed so happy, his lecture had evaporated from his
brought three kinds of syrup,” Cisco began explaining, drawing his
attention away, “This one is regular, this one if butter flavored,
and this one,” Cisco grinned as he pointed to the dark brown
squeeze bottle, “is nutella that I put in a squeeze bottle.”
eyed the selection for a moment before looking up at Cisco with an
impassive face, “Thank you,” he said without elaborating,
figuring Cisco could take it as a thank you for breakfast, or for
keeping an eye on Lina while he wasn’t around, both were
applicable. He dressed his waffles sparingly, he’d never really had
the taste for sweet things, a pad of butter and a drizzling of syrup
was all he needed.
cut a bite from the grid pattern and had it halfway towards his mouth
when Lina called from near the coffee pot, “Who is this woman?”
the note of confusion in her voice giving him pause.
returned to the table, framed picture in hand as he set a cup of
coffee in front of Francisco. She held the picture out to Eve, who
took it and went slightly pale as she looked at it. Cisco peered over
her shoulder and made a face, “That’s uh… that’s Caitlin,”
he said softly, taking the picture from Eve as he put a hand on her
shoulder, “she’s our friend, she used to work with us but,” he
swallowed and handed the picture back to Lina, “she left, after her
husband died, she uh…she decided to take some time off.”
squinted at him suspiciously, “She left?” she asked, setting the
picture down on the table.
reached for it, wanting to know who this woman was that Lina was
asking about. What he saw made his eyes go wide, “You have got to
be kidding me!” he exclaimed looking over at Even and Cisco
incredulously, “You’re friends with Frost?!”
and Eve stared back at him in utter confusion, so Francisco turned
the picture around and pointed to Caitlin, smiling an happy with her
arm around Eve while Cisco made a funny face behind them. Eve poked
at the waffle on her plate as she replied “Um…well her last name
is Snow, not Frost so-”
Francisco means,” Lina interrupted her calmly, “is on our Earth,
your friend’s doppelganger is a meta, she calls herself Killer
Frost because of her rather deadly ice powers,” she snatched the
picture from Francisco’s hands, his finger still pointed accusingly
at Caitlin’s smiling face, “that’s why I asked who she was, and
then when you told me she just left…” Lina bit her lip
thoughtfully, trying to decide how best to say she thought Caitlin
might be in serious danger without frightening them, “suffice it to
say, I’m curious if you know exactly why she left, and possibly
where she went?”
and Cisco shared a look, Eve’s significantly more distraught
expression giving Lina a twinge of guilt at bringing it up. Cisco
sighed, taking a seat next to Eve as he relented, “She did leave
after Ronnie died, and Ronnie was her husband, that much is true
but…” he trailed off, taking Eve’s hand for support before
continuing, “last night I had a um…vision of her, and she
seemed…well she seemed like she was in trouble-”
was surrounded by ice,” Eve cut in, “I saw the vision too, it was
an accident though, my powers aren’t really…anyway she was
surrounded by ice but it was only near her, like it was coming from
leaned back in his chair, putting a hand over his face as he made a
frustrated groaning noise, “Well that’s fucking fantastic,
there’s a Killer Frost on this Earth and you don’t even know
where she is,” he removed his hand from his face and glared over at
the pair of them, “who’s to say she won’t come back here, hmn?
If she’s anything like the Frost I know, she’d freeze every one
of us just to hear us scream -”
Lina snapped, gripping his shoulder hard enough to bruise. He looked
up at her, his mouth already open to defend his claims, but at the
warning look in her eyes he closed his mouth and scowled, frustrated
by the seeming complacency of all the members of Team Flash.
is not evil,” Cisco said, his voice low and angry, “Caitlin Snow
is one of the kindest people I have ever met, regardless of whether
or not she’s developing these powers, she would never hurt anyone,
she’s not like that!”
believe you,” Lina assured him softly, “but I have to wonder, if
she is as good as you say she is, perhaps she isn’t simply taking a
break from your team.”
looked near tears, her hand clutching Cisco’s in a near death grip,
“What do you mean?” she asked, her voice shaking slightly,
“you…you think she left to…protect us?”
are you so interested in her?” Cisco asked suddenly, moving to
stand behind Eve so that he could comfort her with and embrace, “so
Caitlin has a doppelganger on your Earth, it’s not like that’s
strange is it? I mean look at us, who’s to say there isn’t a
doppelganger for everyone on this Earth on your Earth?”
probably is,” Francisco agreed, “but within that same brilliant
train of thought, if we share the same powers, then Caitlin probably
shares Frost’s powers, which means shes incredibly dangerous!”
is not dangerous!” Cisco shouted back, “She’s-”
both of you!” Lina cried, silencing Cisco mid sentence, and earning
a surprised look from both him and Francisco. She took a breath
before continuing, “Now, to answer your question Cisco, I am
interested in her because I think I might have had a vision about her
stared at her in disbelief, his mouth opening and closing as his
brain struggled to process her words. Francisco on the other hand was
out of his seat in a second, regarding Lina with a fearful concern,
“That’s not part of your powers Lina,” he reminded her
needlessly, “when did this happen?”
after we arrived,” Lina explained, “I didn’t say anything
because it felt more like a dream, but now I’m starting to think
otherwise,” her face scrunched together as she struggled to
remember the vaporous images from weeks before, “there was a woman,
in an alleyway, she was surrounded by ice like you described but she
what we saw,” Cisco confirmed, “but how did y- you weren’t even
there, how could you-?”
can’t explain it either,” Lina admit with a shrug, “but if I
somehow saw the same vision as you two, then maybe,” she looked
from Cisco, to Eve to Francisco and back, taking a breath before
finishing, “maybe she’s got something to do with what’s wrong
frowned, taking Lina’s hand, “Lina,” he said her name softly,
rubbing his thumb along her knuckles, “that doesn’t make any
sense, how could someone with ice powers help with your telepathic
shrugged, “I don’t know, I just have this feeling… I can’t
explain it, I just-”
Cisco interrupted her, his brow furrowed in thought, “you might be
on to something.”
Lina and Francisco frowned at him, “Why?” Lina asked, gripping
Francisco’s hand a little tighter.
was a moment or two of silence as Lina and Francisco stared at him in
disbelief. Then Francisco shook his head and sighed, “Well that’s
even better,” he said with a sarcastic smile, “not only do you
have a Killer Frost on your Earth, she’s your doctor!” he laughed
bitterly, “and she’s fucking missing!” he let go of Lina’s
hand and started to stalk off towards the door.
where are you going?” Lina called to him.
even turning around he called back, “I’m going to get our things.
This was obviously a mistake, I’m taking you home.”
If you ever feel sad just imagine that there’s an alternate universe where you are a fictional character and everyone absolutely loves you and your flaws. People make blogs and lovely edits of you and probably ship you with your best friend. They have your funny one-liners you thought nobody heard as their bios.
Even better, people make fanart of you. They pretend you’re a chief, or a scuba diver in some alternate universe of their own. Some people attempt to replicate your personality because they love it so much. Others dress as you for Halloween.
Imagine an alternate universe where you are so unbelievably loved from people you don’t know exist.
