Say it with me. Chuck E Cheese is not Five Nights at Freddy’s.
And the animatronics do not move at night. First off, a good majority of the animatronics don’t even have legs.
These certain set up of the band don’t have legs. They’re half bodied to save on money. And the other animatronics don’t even have animatronic devices in their legs. Furthermore, at night they’re left on random mode, y’know, that mode where they just turn their heads and blink. Stop saying about how they’re gonna kill you.
Plot: Reader has been held prisoner by Hydra and is discovered by Nat and Bucky. Post CA:CW (Bucky’s on the team, no one hates each other) Slight AU
Warnings: Mentions of torture, detailed injuries/deaths, cursing, some pics might be slight disturbing
A/N: I finally had some inspiration. I hope you like this part. I try to put out only what I think is good for where I want to take my work so I apologise for the delays, I just want to put my best work out there. Thank you for sticking around for more of Nobody.
As Bucky sat in the stiff armchair in the
hospital room and gazed down at X-25493’s unconscious form. Banner and Cho had
spent the last 14 hours in surgery and X looked somehow even worse for
wear. He ran his hands through his hair
for probably the thousandth time causing it to stand up at odd angles. He had a hard time coming to terms with the
information that had been dumped on him.
This girl—this girl—had
done…that. Memories of the photos
Natasha had shown him, Steve, and later Tony several hours before flashed
across his minds’ eye: bodies—horribly mangled bodies strewn about in red
snow. Dead faces frozen in agony and
terror. And a campsite torn to shreds as
if a demonic wolf pack had descended upon it.
Body parts were scattered everywhere. The carnage was gut wrenching. Heads, legs, torsos were piled up all around him. That didn’t matter, he had tunnel vision, Beast Boy was a man on a mission. He would find it! No matter what it took.
Beast Boy had effectively created a mountain range of mini-figure parts in a lose circle around him. He sat Indian style on the floor searching through the small plastic pieces. This was the 3rd and the last Lego store he had been to that day. He could just kick himself for not coming up with this idea sooner, he could have had the parts he needed delivered right to his door, but inspiration never did show up for him till the last minute. In a way this was better, it was like a quest! That just ordering the stuff online would make this too easy.
“Dude!” Beast boy exclaimed in victory, throwing his arms and legs out knocking pieces off the piles over. He quickly scrambled off the floor and was at the sales counter nearly falling over himself. He put the parts on the counter. All of this for the parts of two mini figures. Yet the grin on his face you would have thought the young hero just found buried treasure. Not just a few random pieces of plastic. He couldn’t wait to see Raven’s face.
Raven was staring at Beast Boy’s door. She looked again at the folded piece of paper in her hand, with a hastily scrawled note on it.
5 pm come to my room please. -Beast Boy.
Raven was not sure what to think, her Boyfriend had been acting strange all week. Raven wasn’t upset, why should she be. So, what if she hadn’t talked to Beast Boy in days. So, what if he had spent every spare moment locked in his room. Or out “Running errands” as he would say. So what if he finally realized that she really was a closed off iceberg of a human being that could only show him the smallest drops of affection. She blew past upset miles ago.
Raven tried to push that last thought away. Despite having the extra time to meditate her emotions seem to rise and fall like rough seas, in turn churning up more and more imaginative worst-case scenarios. She chanted quietly to herself, just a few times to sure up her emotional control. Before she could knock on the door it slid open on its own.
The room was darker than normal and the floor was unusually clear. She noticed movement by her feet a small car made of Lego was parked on the floor. It was a model of the T-car Beast Boy had built months ago. All the sudden the car lurched forward a few feet. Then it slowly drove deeper into the darkened space. Raved followed it to a small table setup in the center of the room. The car disappeared under a blanket that was draped over the table like a table cloth.
Raven was astonished and a bit confused. On the table surrounded by t-light candles was an elaborate Lego structure. It was a hinged building opened like a doll house. There were small tables and chairs populated with happy yellow faced figurines. Counters, and a kitchen complete with an astronaut wearing a chef’s hat? There were waiters, a host stand, and flowers on all the tables. It was the brick oven pizza place recreated in every detail. The windows, the tile roof, the red and white checkerboard pattern on the tables. This was not the ‘regular’ pizza place that young heroes were at every week but the one across town where…
That’s when she saw them. In that little corner table. Raven and Beast Boy in mini figure form. Sitting next to each other, A Lego pizza on a table in front of them. Raven crouched down to take in the details. Beast boy sat on the left in purple with a smiling green face, next to the Lego Raven complete with blue hood and cloak, there was a red chakra was painted on her forehead. The two mini figures were even holding hands under the table just like that night.
“You know I think you look really good in Lego” Came a familiar voice under the table. Raven stood back up looking over the building to find Beast Boy lying on the floor his legs under that table, the model T-car and some balled up string in his hands.
“Happy Anniversary?” he said quietly with an unsure lopsided smile.
“Anniversary?” the question leaked out quietly.
Beast Boy pulled himself out from under the table “One year ago today” he said up and facing Raven “You agreed to give this a try.” He held up the car “and I took you for Pizza”. Beast Boy spun one of the wheels with his thumb before his eyes met Ravens.
The light from the candles flickered on both of their faces and a heavy silence settled into the room between them. Beast Boy just kept smiling cause he was not sure what else to do next. This was the part of the plan where she was supposed to tackle him in a fierce hug and tell him how wonderful this all was, but instead Raven just stood there with a shocked look on her face.
“Rae?” Beast Boy risked after a solid never-ending minute of silence.
“This! This is why you haven’t talked to me in 3 days!?” she said in her normal monotone. "Do you have any idea what I was thinking during that whole time?“
Beast Boys smile ran away quickly. Raven grabbed the front of Beast Boy’s shirt and balled it tight in a fist pulling him to her. "I thought you were avoiding me! That you wanted to break up with me!”
“Raven I am S-”
Raven attacked his mouth with hers, and Beast Boy just melted as Ravens free hand went to the back of his head to play with his hair. Raven pushed him away when needing air became an issue. "This was very thoughtful,“ She said between breathes “but I am still mad at you.” She looked back to the model restaurant. “I don’t remember an Astronaut in the kitchen”
“I forgot to find a chef and he was the best I could do at the last minute”. He said sheepishly “Also I don’t think I can go to the Lego stores for a while.”
Raven released the grip she had on his shirt and embraced him. Resting her head on his shoulder. Beast Boys arms wrapped around her the toy car still in his hand.
“I am sorry Rae, I just got wrapped up in this. How can I make it up to you?”
Raven just held him for a few minutes. She didn’t realize how much she missed this sensation. She pulled away a just enough to come face to face with him. "Well we are alone, in the dark, in your room,“ She paused a moment to nip at his exposed neck pulling a very satisfying gasp from his mouth. "You could get out of these clothes…”
“Yea” he responded eagerly.
“Yes, and put on some nice ones and take me to dinner” She said stepping back leaving a shocked look on her boyfriend’s face.
Raven took another look at the model before heading for the door. "Give me 20 minutes to get ready and come collect me.“
“Want to get pizza?” came out of his fanged grin.
Raven turned back around. Her eyes fixed on the Lego versions of herself and Beast Boy still happily sitting together at that little corner table. “Absolutely” she said before disappearing out the door.
I need to thank @loubuggins for sharing the images of her Raven and Beast Boy mini figs. (Yes I am still jealous. ) This one took longer then I thought, it had about 6 false starts. I had not written anything in a while (nothing good enough to share at least.) I like the idea that showing someone you care, the effort is more important then the money and the act can be more memorable then expensive.
This is an AU where the squad members each own their own shops in a strip mall. Stores are from left to right.
Rick’s Army and Outdoor Store- Owned by Rick Flag. After being expelled from the army for being in a relationship with a cadet, June Moone, the two settled down in Lousianna and opened their own small business. It used to sell only armed forces supplies, but competition from Deadshot led him to include outdoor supplies such as camping and sports equipment.
Maseo Martial Arts- Owned by Tatsu Yamashiro. She moved to America to start her own dojo after her husband died. Tatsu often gets in arguments with Digger, because his bar scares off younger customers. Also, Digger often comes in and disrupts classes.
Boomerang’s Bar- Owned by Digger Harkness. The bar is famous for its homemade Australian beer. The logo for it is a pink unicorn on an Australian flag. He often tries to hire help, but every person he hires he ends up firing. The only person besides him who is on staff is his son Owen, who is going to a community college down the road.
Killer Croc’s Cajun Restaurant- Owned by Waylon Jones. He is a very large man with a skin disease, and others are a bit wary of him. No one knows exactly what he makes his food out of, but he is often seen with a blood-stained apron chewing on raw meet. The others find he is friendly once they get to know him.
Harley’s Tattoo Parlor- Owned by Harley Quinn. She used to work at her boyfriend’s shop Joker’s Tattoo Parlor, but decided to start her own. Her shop is the most popular in the strip mall because people from her boyfriend’s shop come to her store.
Deadshot- Owned by Floyd Lawton. The store is a gun store that sells various weapons. There is also a shooting range in the back that Floyd will use to give lessons. The walls of the store and windows are frequently covered with drawings by his daughter Zoe. Some are more recent and drawn quite well, but there are also some scribble ones from when Zoe was younger. He keeps them all up.
Diablo Pizzeria- Owned by Chato Santana. Chato is an ex-firefighter who quit his job after a fire started in his own house, and he was unable to save his wife and kids. His restaurant is known for its brick oven pizzas and jalapeño toppings. It used to be a Boy Scout store owned by Christopher Weiss, but after it went out of business Chato purchased it and had it redesigned.
Amanda Waller owns the strip mall and collects rent from the stores. The plaza is called Plaza X, but everyone calls it the Suicide Squad Plaza, because every other store in the small town had failed before it.
