Autistic people in the Divergent universe. Like, just hear me out ok:
Autistic Candor people loving how everything is black & white, true or false, just like how it is in their brain
Autistic Erudite people spending their entire lives researching their special interest and NOBODY COMPLAINS bc it’s completely normal in Erudite
Autistic Abnegation people embracing the routine & wearing the same outfit every day
Autistic Amity people falling in love with the headquarters bc it’s all naturally lit & has soft colours so no sensory overload!! And having a special interest in gardening. Autistic Amity people not getting in trouble for lack of personal space.
Autistic Dauntless people falling in love w the headquarters bc no sensory overload (like amity) but bc it’s dark. Punching things when they have a meltdown and its 100% ok.
What if Candor has the lowest depression and suicide rates since everyone is supposed to be honest and always tell the truth? Like if someone asks them if they’re okay, they don’t just say “I’m fine”, they say “No, and this is what’s wrong…”
The truth, sometimes, sucks a lot. As I crumpled to the ground, wind knocked out of me, that thought sprung to mind. Everything hurt, and my ears were ringing. I cast a glance upwards at Lieutenant Dickhead, Chris to his posse. Iron filled my mouth, and I spat it out against the rough concrete beneath me as I took a few deep breaths. I saw Chris turn away from me, and the ringing in my ears faded away, making way for the real world again.
“…let’s hope so, hey?” I heard him snicker cockily to the circle around us.
“What was that?” I called out as loudly as I could, steeling myself as I staggered slowly to my feet. Chris turned around, surprised, but that quickly gave way to his regular self, and he ran towards me. However, I was ready this time. As he neared me, he quickly snapped out his arm towards me, and I caught his arm. I grabbed his shoulder and elbow, and twisted quickly and precisely. I felt his shoulder pop beneath my hand. A shroud of silence settled over the crowd. Then Chris started screaming, and I ran.
