hello everyone, today I’m bringing you: a Fantastic Beats AU where everything is the same except everyone has a dæmon

disclaimer: this AU is very self-indulgent and I haven’t thought out all details and impracticalities of it, so please don’t nitpick. anyway,

- only witches and wizards are born with dæmons, muggles don’t have them

- a lot of dæmons settle as birds seeing as it’s more convenient form that can follow its human when they travel via flying objects like broomsticks

- both Grindelwald and Graves have large birds of prey as their dæmons; the birds are different, but look similar enough to be mixed up by anyone who doesn’t pay too much attention (this is another reason for Graves to be extremely salty once they find him after the whole Grindelwand infiltration incident; “I can’t believe you fools couldn’t tell one bird from another,” he keeps saying. “Maybe I should summon that Scamander guy back in America and ask him to give you all a few zoology lessons.”)

- Tina’s dæmon is an english setter, Queenie’s is a dove

- Credence’s dæmon is a black cat, for two reasons, one of them being me finding it aesthetically pleasing, and the second is that it’d probably piss Mary Lou off even more because there’s a lot of superstitions around black cats plus all that stuff about them being familiars of witches

- when Credence was a child, and his dæmon could still change its form, it took shape of small animals/birds/insects so that Credence was able to hide it from Mary Lou in his pockets; then it settled as a black cat and Credence started having a really hard time keeping it from Mary Lou’s eyes

- I wasn’t sure about Newt’s dæmon, only knowing that I wanted it to be an animal he can carry around on his shoulder so it’d constantly pick fights with Pickett much to Newt’s agitation; then someone I was discussing this AU with suggested an occamy and I ran with it. maybe it doesn’t exactly fit him personality-wise, but it’s my favourite magical creature so I just kind of. put two of my faves together. personal bias much? why yes, absolutely

- (or, you know, Pickett himself could be Newt’s dæmon instead, now that I think of it; those drawings can be read as either of these two options)

- yes, magical creatures can also be dæmons, because why the hell not; I guess it’s just not that common, and if your dæmon settles as one it’s a sign that you’re most likely an eccentric and unpredictable person (and isn’t that what annoys other people)

okay I’m done and please for the love of god don’t delete this long ass comment

okay but everyone’s talking about the harry potter daemon au and i really want to add something that i was re-reading about kids’ daemons not settling until they reach a certain age and then its permanent. and in the hp au, what if harry’s never settled? as a side-effect of being hit with the killing curse as a baby, his daemon never settles. constantly changes. fully grown, yes, but always changing, even after the war 

something for u, @sadfishkid

Have you ever read His Dark Materials series by Phillip Pullman? The one where everyone's sole manifests as an animal beside them and until puberty can shift between forms and then settles on a single shape at puberty? Setting aside the kind of bizarre zoo that would inevitably turn the rebellion into, what sort of animal soul things do you think DAV characters would have? I'm dead curious about your thoughts :D

I have never read His Dark Materials but I’m familiar with the concept of daemons and how they work, so, here you go.

  • Leia’s daemon, appropriately enough, settled as a dragon. Her parents were always pretty unnerved by this, and Leia herself found it odd since there are no dragon species native to Alderaan. When she first meets Luke in that Death Star cell, he’s momentarily stunned into silence because there’s the Princess sitting there calm as you please with a Krayt dragon.
  • Luke’s daemon settled as a kokaru, a cliff-dwelling bird of prey native to Tatooine and known for its steep dives and incredibly acrobatic flight patterns. He’s immensely proud of this fact after Obi-Wan told him that his father’s daemon was also a kokaru.
  • Anakin’s daemon was indeed a kokaru, and still is, but Luke could be forgiven for not recognizing Vader’s daemon. When Anakin burned so did his daemon, and now she’s scarred and wingless. It would be a mistake to think that means she’s any less ferocious, though.
  • Han’s daemon, to his everlasting embarrassment, settled as a nerf. This is only made worse by the fact that Chewie’s daemon is a varactyl.
  • Ahsoka’s daemon is a moonmoth, an insect native to Coruscant. During the day it usually remains still, sunning itself, and is active at night, when its wings glow with reflected light.
  • Kadee’s daemon popped into rather startled existence the first time she said, “I own myself,” and pretty quickly settled as an anooba, a ferociously loyal pack animal native to Tatooine. Her anooba regards Kadee, Anakin, and Anakin’s kokaru as the members of its pack.
  • Palpatine probably killed his daemon years ago because that’s the kind of person he is.

You said you’d follow me into the dark…

(click title for the song that inspired this) Smn mentioned why Omen-Trailer!Noctis n Magitek!Prompto isn’t a thing yet n I intend to change that :’D The more I thought about the Omen trailer n what it could’ve have ment for the game, the more I’m convinced that this was one of the things they had to cut from the game. like, you know all these dialouge options that seem to indicate like there had been plans for Noct to either flirt with Luna or Iris n also for him to be a supportive bro or a total douche? considering the Omen trailer, I wonder now whether they originally planned for Noctis to become Ardyn in an alternative ending. that he’d be the one eaten up by the darkness n Ardyn gets the chance to redeem himself instead n becomes worthy of the crystal (or they team up n everything goes boom lol).

In light of Omen!Ardyn-ish!Noctis, I like Magitek/Daemonized Prompto who would have turned alongside with him. But then there’d always be this little bit of the old Prompto left within him that mourns what they, what Noctis!, has become…

I’m enthralled with this idea, hence it became another piece that you can aquire in my etsy shop :)
