Angie gasped when she saw Stan’s new colors, “Banjo! We match!”
Introducing Shiny Banjo!
Yesterday @thelastspeecher and I decided that in the Banjo twins au were Angie and Stan both got de-aged, that when Ford comes to visit the first time he brings an experiment with him to work on. Stan plays a prank on Ford, the experiment chemicals spill on Banjo by accident, and now Stan looks a bit more like a Mcgucket than he used to.
To explain why this would happen, the experiment Ford brought with him from school was one to create a perfect disguise. Watching shows it seemed to Ford that they always ended with someone realizing it was hair dye or pulling of the mask no matter how perfect. So he decided to create a chemical that could change a persons DNA in such a way that their looks changed to someone else, and could only be changed back by drinking a reverse tonic. Ford decided to use Fiddleford as a base for his first tonic, because he was around Fidds the most, this was a prototype so he’d only gotten colors down at this point. Or else Banjo might have ended up with a Mcgucket nose too.
Though the main experiment works great, the reversal tonic is much more dangerous and Ford is not sure it would be safe for a child. Since it helps bolster the new identity of Stan as Angie’s twin, Ma and Pa Mcgucket decide to leave it till Stan is a teenager, and let him take it to put his looks back to normal. Of course, by the time Stan grows back up as Banjo he is used to the look and doesn’t want to change it back, he likes being his sister’s twin after all.
