I need to know more about this Titanic AU???
I mean……..do you understand that you’ve just unleashed my need to share all the ideas I’ve had brewing for ???? months now upon all of my followers??
So I originally was gonna do this AU for the Klance big bang but then life happened and anxiety happened and my depreciating crippling self hatred and belief that everything I do is shit happened (as usual) so I had to drop out lmao but !!! one day I was texting my babu @jackalopesart and we were talkin about aus or big bangs and she was like “man i would love me a klance titanic au i love titanic” and i was like “haha funny u should mention that bc i have an outline for a klance titanic au for that big bang that i was gonna do before i dropped out” and she started screaming at me that she would have picked that prompt so quick and ksFKSJDFLS you probably don’t care about this background story SORRY but it was just really funny but also she inspired me to keep writing it!!!!! it was just gonna be another one of the 23 WIPs on my google docs but we were talking and she just made me really wanna keep going? so I finished chapter one and she started drawing for it and now we’re here and once she’s finished this last piece of art, chapter one will be up, hopefully this week!!!! :’)
Now in terms of the actual AU,,,I actually don’t want to give too much away😬
What Kelsi and I have shared with you guys is at least the very basis of the fic, which is that, essentially, Lance is Jack Dawson, and Keith is Rose DeWitt Bukater. However!!! This fic is not going to follow the movie’s storyline to a T.
I really want this to be a rollercoaster for everyone reading it because it’s going to be different in a lot of different ways!!! and I’ve seen a lot of people be like “well keith should be X and lance should be Y instead” or “lance is gonna die, wow, great” and like. I mean if y’all wanna write your own Titanic AUs then be my guest, but for this story, you literally have no idea what’s gonna happen to these characters or who is who and what their background is yet or who’s gonna get sucked into the freezing vacuum of the Atlantic ocean! All in good time!!!
That being said, of course some of the Most Iconic Scenes will be reflected in similar if not very nearly the exact same ways in this fic…I mean……the car scene, amirite?? But in all seriousness, it’s not going to be the exact same as the movie, so in the end, I guess everyone will just have to read and see? What I can tell you for certain is that Lance and Keith meet in the first chapter, if that helps. I did post a small excerpt of that meeting from Chapter One under my “titanic au” tag on this blog (tho it’s an older draft and i’ve edited that scene a fair bit since I posted it) but hopefully the entire thing will be ready and up in the next few days!!
Sorry for being a bit secretive but I love bein an extra bitch and letting people go along for the ride with the stories I tell :’’) It’ll be worth it, I promise. I hope, anyway? And also sorry ahead of time for the tears that will probably definitely be my fault. oops!!
