Are you thinking about adding Tsurugi into the Age AU? Or did you just consider it but never knew how to add him in?
I am pretty much experiencing both those questions at once. ^^;; Like… I was planning to have Tsurugi for quite awhile. (I mean yes, I did say I wasn’t sure how I would add C3 characters into it several times now.) But I thought I could at least have Tsurugi, because we know more about his character and such. (also he’s pretty good with young kids?? You can fight me on this. But him and Takuto are adorable okay?)
I was thinking about making him a close friend of Wrath(aka Okami). OF COURSE. Like Tetsu and Hugh’s senpai and kohai relationship in this au or Jeje and Mikuni’s “friendship” that only happened because little Misono and Lily are close. So Tsurugi can take part in the everyday shenanigans of the Servamp Family.
They would have a close and unlikely friendship??? Lol, like the kind where people think they are dating, and it gets annoying because like “Guys,come on. A boy and girl can be friends without falling in love or whatever.”
If I go with the friendship route that means Tsurugi will be around 13 years old in this au. Like Okami. (cause remember most characters ages are altered in this au, THAT WHY ITS AGE AU. 8D) and likely met through school or whatever circumstance you wanna imagine.
Perhaps it could be more interesting and Okami is someone who protected him or even maybe stood up for him in school. Because even as a human, I feel like she would be the kind of person who won’t stand for any injustice against others.
Why? Well, we all know Tsurugi didn’t have the happiest past…. so he might still be having personal issues that caused Wrath to become his friend. (IDK REALLY, I have been tossing this all up in the air forever now.)
Even though I said age au is supposed to be a happy au where things are better now cause everyone is human, has family/friends, and there is no crazy war and no one is getting hurt or dying. Doesn’t mean it doesn’t still have it’s dark undertones. For example:
- In the Servamp family, sure they appear to be a happy large family of siblings. But. They have no spoken of or visible mother around. (Spare me the Mamahiru jokes,I know. But let’s be serious for a sec) and their father figure(“creator/sensei”) is mentioned. BUT NEVER SEEN. It’s due to him being super busy all the time and works farther away, claiming it’s to support his family. Which is the reason why Hugh works part-time at 16 and Kuro is usually home watching young Tsubaki.
- Sakuya’s older sister is alive. But their past together still remains. I made it to where it’s another pretty unspoken thing in age au, and doesn’t seem to bother them since life is pretty good now on their own. Although they have escaped that awful life, the hatred of lies and such is still there. Also there might be a slight distrust between Sakuya and his sister, because even if everything she did/does is for him… She’s still a liar to him. (but that will all depend on how I decide to interpret her character. She’s not very major in this au though, so yeah.)
- Ophelia is also a character who is alive. But as a child like Hyde now. I said I am not killing child Ophelia in this au. NO NO. But whose to say everything is perfect forever even when they are older? Like I said a lot of things are left for imagination on purpose for past and future things.
- Mikuni and Misono’s family is still together right now. (Mikuni’s 14 and Misono being 3) but whose also to say things stay perfect forever, there too?
- and so on.
I leave these all as a given or up to imagination.(cause obviously I am not gonna have the ability to draw every single last idea I get.) It’s so the characters are still themselves, but with a twist? That’s how alternate universes be after all.
I have no better way of explaining it. ppfftttt but you get the idea. I was mostly waiting to see if Tsurugi and Wrath actually become Wrath Pair in the manga, CAUSE I WAS certain it was gonna happen, but now…. I ain’t sure of anything anymore, 8| Sooooo I might just go for it??? A very secondary idea I had was the C3 as teachers thing, and Tsurugi would still be an adult instead, but he would maybe work at the preschool/daycare that Lily and Misono are at.(cause the whole good with kids thing, maybe not the best role model, but at least he is fun. lol) But yeah, I don’t know. -3-;;
