Android!Baymax AU costume details + extended headcanons! I’ve actually received quite a few lovely asks from potential cosplayers, so as a fellow cosplayer I felt it might be nice to provide reference pics (especially since I’m so sloppy and inconsistent in the earlier Android AU posts).
I was also talking to a friend, and they told me that the reasons for my choices for Bay’s costume aren’t as obvious as I thought, so hopefully some of you will find my thoughts amusing. Also added lotsa extra headcanons no one asked for lol <3
(And as a note, if anyone wants to cosplay Android!Bay, holy crap, I’m super honored, and of course you’re more than welcome to! Just give me credit for my design, don’t repost the images by themselves anywhere else, and please send me a link when you’re done because I definitely want to see! *A*)

*Option A. I was actually just going for doing whatever I wanted on this day, but it ended up being an AU. Great how that turned out! This has been a fun seven days. I had a blast exploring so many different characters (anyone notice I focused on a different person(s) each day?) and worlds. I hope you all enjoyed them and that you enjoy this one!
“I’m sorry Carter,” Cat murmurs into his hair as she pulls her son close, feeling him tremble as explosions rend the night sky outside. “I tried everything to keep you safe, my darling.”
“It’s okay, mom,” he half-sobs against her. “At least we’re together.”
“That’s right,” Cat pulls back just a little, just to look at that innocent face one more time. “My brave boy. When there’s nothing left to try, it’s important to still be brave. Even in the face of the world ending.”
“Oh,” says an exhausted voice from the window. Or what used to be a window, before the glass shattered hours ago. “There’s one thing left to try.”
“Kara?” Cat doesn’t have the time or energy to pretend otherwise. She hears Carter’s gasp, whether at the sight of Supergirl or hearing her real name, Cat can’t be sure. “If you’re going to save the world again, you could start the process a little sooner. All this last-minute nonsense is far too dramatic.”
“Cat Grant calling me out on melodrama,” Kara observes, striding through debris to pick up a protesting Grant under each arm. “That’s a good one.”
Louis Tomlinson, Doctor, and chair of a well deserving children’s charity is thrilled to be contacted by the team of famous pop star, and also long time star of Louis’ dreams Harry Styles, to create a fundraising opportunity. Nothing actually goes the way Louis thought it would.
Everything froze and Bucky felt his
heart drop, heavy as stone yet fragile like glass, shattering to smithereens as
it hit the ground. His lips parted, but no words came out. He just stared at
you before looking back at the man, who only look surprised.
Before anyone else could say
anything, the man jumped. “Well, that’s clearly a signal,” he said, startling
Bucky from his haze. “I’ll be stepping out.”
Derek has a son who wanders off in the supermarket and eventually starts crying in a hallway close to where Stiles is trying to look for some sort of cutesy underwear.
The later hears it and walks the couple of steps that separate him from the little kid, finding out through his baling that he’s lost his dada. Stiles promises to help, balancing the child on his hip while going through the store in search of this guy.
While he does that, however, Derek finds him first and, seeing this man walking away with his son and being completely paranoid, he marches up to him in absolute rage and yells something about giving him the fucking kid back.
Stiles is completely startled, and puts the kid on the ground while babbling about how he was sorry, but they’d been trying to find him to no avail and the child was in no condition to walk around. Like, really, he was so,so, sorry.
And Hale is still suspicious, being over protective of his son ever since they’d lost his mother and he ended up having to raise him without the aid of anyone. But the child stops him from lashing out again when he tells his dada about how Ms Stitelols heard him shouting for help and had been doing so the whole time.
Derek feels bad and decides to apologize to the guy in front of him, giving him the short version of the story, where he was a single parent and got generally paranoid about losing the most precious thing in his life.
While doing that, Stiles get completely entranced by how fucking beautiful this man is, and wow, that jaw line and..and…he also was a cute father when not threatening to rip his head off…oh god.
Derek’s situation isn’t much better, so they end up staring at each other while the kid is already completely entranced by his dad’s shoe laces, which he’s tying to one another like his friend from school taught him to.
So, while that happens, a teenage girl stops by them and just squeaks “Oh God, I’m sorry for being intrusive, but you guys are such a cute family!” and goes away with a smile before either of them can contort.
Derek makes a rush decision and just ends up going with:
“Hm…I, hm…do you wanna go on a date sometime? You know, to overcompensate for the fact that I called you a kidnapper and threatened your life and all? I’m sorry about that, by the way.”
And Stiles is just like “Well, it does seem like we’re pretty shippable”, with a blush creeping up his neck.
Hale scrunches up his forehead in confusion, and Stilinski just goes “I mean, yes. What I meant to say was yes”
So they exchange numbers, go on a date a couple of days after and live happy ever after.
So imagine if instead of being notorious criminal overlords the FAHC were that one group of disgruntled office employees quietly sticking it to the man through petty theft, mild property damage and passive aggressive notes.
Geoff as the totally disenfranchised manager, who hates his cohort and higher ups more than any of his underlings could manage, constantly muttering insults about everyone under his breath and watching the clock tick the day away. He has somehow, very much unwillingly, managed to accidentally start collecting a little group of equally resentful coworkers to complain to and plan tiny little revolts with.
Michael and Jeremy as workerbees under Geoff, who sit in neighbouring cubicles and spend most of their days complaining to each other about this nightmare office and coming up with excuses to call Gavin up to hang out with them. Together they play really petty little tricks on one of the managers who always screams at everyone, and when Geoff catches them at it one day they think they are done for. Jeremy sees his life flash before his eyes, Michael is halfway through fantasising about flipping some desks on his way out, but Geoff just makes a suggestion, tells them last week’s efforts were much more impressive, and goes about his way. From that point on he really can’t get rid of the two of them.
Gavin as IT’s wonderchild- there isn’t a piece of hardware he can’t coax into working or any kind of software he can’t navigate in his sleep. That’s really the only reason he hasn’t been fired a million times over, what with the way he ignores clothing standards (except for on his inexplicable ‘Fancy Fridays’), rarely bothers with appropriately respectful deference, spends way too much of his time hanging out at Michael’s desk and keeps breaking into peoples accounts and leaving juvenile jokes and embarrassing viruses. But he’s just so damn good, and the fact that the terrifying head of IT has a huge soft spot for him doesn’t hurt.
Ryan as the head of the IT department who almost everyone is legitimately scared of. Who likes the computers much more than the idiots who insists on breaking them, glowers at everyone who brings him their stupid problems and is way more built than any tech nerd has any right to be. Ryan makes the whole group amusingly nervous at first, he and Geoff have a whole infamous history complete with a public screaming match over an unrecoverable destroyed hard-drive after all, but Gavin drags him along to enough lunches for everyone to see he’s mostly just a very cranky marshmallow.
Jack who works in human resources and used to be so optimistic, legitimately trying to improve everyone’s experience before slowly getting crushed under the growing hatred for the business. Jack who knows exactly who is responsible for the near daily complaints their office receives about anonymous troublemakers but is just as exasperated with the management as everyone else so helps keep them all out of trouble.
They take their lunches together, occasionally joined by Lindsay from administration and, strangely enough, two members of office security, Matt and Trevor. They make a pretty motley crew; half unnaturally peppy, half perpetually angry rainclouds, sharing each others misery and covertly planning their next big rebellion. Stealing stationary and packed lunches, spiking the punch at office parties, sabotaging the photocopier, posting embarrassing google histories, accidentally uncovering their bosses’ shady white collar dealings and making off with millions of dollars in stolen money. Wait, what?
