Title: The State of San Andreas, Prologue Pairing: Geoff/Reader, Michael/Reader, female!Jac(k)/male!Reader, Ryan/Reader, Gavin/Reader, Ray/Reader Rating: PG-13 Word Count: 5,182 Summary: Los Santos is a playground for gangs, full of illicit activities, people ready to stab you in the face for personal gain, and idealistic people who pretend these things aren’t going on in their own backyards. The Fake AH Crew is the new gang on the block, but they’ve quickly risen to power so that the whole state of San Andreas is afraid they’ll be next. Six members, each with their own skills and abilities wreck havoc whenever there’s something in it for them, and nothing seems to be able to stop two people from the wrong side of town, a madman, a rogue officer of the LSPD, a car buff and a video game enthusiast. They are not to be fucked with, but that doesn’t stop people from trying. A/N: So after talking about it for ages, the GTA V AU is finally here! Just as a heads up, each member of the Fake AH Crew ends up being involved with a different Reader, so there’s 6 instead of one!

There's a new video edit of Bernie that is very Fake AH, and it makes me think that pre-criminal life was a police officer who gave up and became a criminal, I'm curious about your pre-Fakes headconons.
you didn’t mention which specific members, so im just going to do the main 6/7 (aka i’ll mention Ray because he was once a Fake). Here’s a simple run through of my general headcanons of how they all became Fakes. Under read more because this gets REALLY long
Geoff: He was a bad apple from the start, people would say. Truly destined for the life of crime he leads. Always the kid who got in fights, always the kid to rebel against any sort of authority figure. They liked to blame it on him not having a father. But that really wasn’t it. Geoff just didn’t like anyone telling him what to do, telling him what he should be. That was for him to decide for himself. He got involved in the criminal world in high school, ended up skipping town with a couple of friends and making their way to San Andreas.
And then they grew. And then they grew big. The Roosters they were called. Quickly controlled half the city. And Geoff loved it. Loved the heists, loved the dominance, even the gunfights and explosions. But he didn’t like being commanded. Didn’t like being told what to do. He was itching to lead, itching to be the one in control. His work with the Roosters ends surprisingly peacefully. Most likely because of the strange loyal bond they had all formed, much stronger than one would normally expect for criminals in the underworld.
So with peace offerings and well beings, Geoff left San Andreas, driving to the biggest city he could get to. Los Santos. A hell hole by most people’s definitions, even more dangerous, even more chaotic. But Geoff drove there, moved into a tiny, shitty apartment right in the worst of the city. And he looked around and grinned. He would own this city. He was sure of it.
i don’t exactly know what the headcanons are for the members of The Founding Fathers (sans geoff ofc) so let me indulge
matt loves it too much, the notoriety and infamy and being called The Boss. gus doesn’t really have anywhere else to go, doesn’t feel like he’d really fit in anywhere else. so they stay friends and form The Roosters together
and m a n is geoff pissed!! like super pissed!!! so pissed he starts leveling city blocks because who the fuck do those two think they are, they’re nothing without me!!!! mister Too Big For His Britches wasn’t First and is Pissed for Days. then along comes jack and the idea of The Hunters is conceived; later born under a thick layer of black smoke and the sound of heavy gunfire
that leaves burnie and joel. Heyman and Burns were closer to each other than they were to anyone else in The Founding Fathers. the gang life put too much at risk and there wasn’t enough consolation if everything was lost. but instead of sitting back and letting their city fall apart and into the hands of The Hunters and/or The Roosters, they joined the LSPD. they worked their way up to Head Detectives, becoming hard-asses, no-nonsense and steely-eyed, very detached and sensible with all things job-related
(except when it comes to The Hunters or The Roosters, of course. there have been times against The Roosters that left burnie in tears because he loved gus like a brother, why did life deal them this hand, he doesn’t even like this game, what the fuck, or joel shaking because it’s Him Vs. The Hunters and he goes chest-to-barrel with geoff’s gun and tells him to do it, go ahead, my family is all ready splintered apart, what’s the loss of one more going to do and Geoff doesn’t fucking do it and it hurts more than a bullet does)
gus and matt are Very Good Leaders, geoff is a Very Good Boss, burnie and joel are Very Good Police Officers; they’re all Very Good At What They Do, as long as What They Do doesn’t involve each other
