i may upload something different later

I actually have this story up on my FFN account, but I decided that maybe I should also post it here too. You know, really spread the pain around. So yeah, this story is based on a guilty pleasure AU I have. The first 3 chapters won’t show what’s AU about the story. The AU part will come with chapter 4. But, until chapter 4 shows up, you can enjoy the rest. I only made 2 chapter so far, so here’s chapter 1! Chapter 2 may get posted later today on this site. I plan on uploading chapter 3 on FFN later today too, so I’ll maybe upload the chapter on this site tomorrow or something. We’ll see! Well, let’s get on with the tale~!

Title: Twist of Fate Chapter 1

Chapter Title: You and Me

Fandom: Big Hero 6

Summary: Big Hero 6 AU. A small twist of fate can change quite a lot about a story. But, in the end, a brother still grieves. A story that looks to offer a different but familiar approach to the story if a certain something had happened differently.

Warnings: While not present in this chapter, movie spoilers will appear in later chapters.

“Tadashi, honey, don’t be like that…”

Six year old Tadashi Hamada’s pout grew bigger at his mother’s words. He drew himself up into a tighter ball as he lay on the couch, fiddling away with the toy robot his father had gotten him for his birthday the week before.

He heard his parents sighing. He wasn’t taking the news as they had expected, but he didn’t care. You see, Tomeo and Marie Hamada had come back from the doctor’s office with what they thought was exciting news.

Tadashi Hamada was going to be a big brother…and he didn’t like that at all.

Tadashi had heard about what it was like to be an older sibling from the other kids at school. He’d seen what it was like too. Parents never had time for the oldest anymore, focusing all their attention on the new baby. They spoiled the baby rotten while the older one got left behind. A boy in his class had told him about how his little sister always got away with messing up his stuff since she’s his parents’ “precious angel”. One of the girls talked about how her little brother’s crying has kept her up all night. Tadashi had seen a couple younger siblings do something wrong, only to get the older sibling in trouble. Because it was the older sibling’s “job” to look out for the younger ones.

If that was how being a big brother was like, then Tadashi wanted no part of it. He wanted his parents’ love all to himself, thank you very much.

“Tadashi,” his mother said softly, taking a seat beside where he was curled up on the couch, “C'mon, sweetie, I know you’ll be a wonderful big brother.”

“I don’t want a baby,” the six year old mumbled, a frown planted firmly on his face as he twisted his robot’s arm this way and that, “Cancel the order.”

“Tadashi, that…isn’t exactly how it works,” his father replied, amusement in his voice, “You’ll love your new brother or sister, I’m sure you will.”

“No, I won’t,” Tadashi answered, sitting up and glaring at his father, “Being a big brother won’t be any fun. The other kids said so.”

“Well, they’re new to being older siblings,” Mr. Hamada pointed out, “I probably would’ve acted the same way if I ever had a sibling.”

“I was that way,” Mrs. Hamada added, “You know how your Aunt Cass is my little sister, right, Tadashi? Oh, I remember crying and begging my parents to take her back when I first saw her at the hospital.”

“Marie…” Mr. Hamada began warningly, looking at the way Tadashi stared at his mother.

“She never seemed to stop crying either!” Mrs. Hamada continued on, too lost in memories, “I was practically falling asleep in class for the whole first year!”

“Marie…”

“And that little weasel was always drooling over all my stuff. I got so mad when I saw her chewing on my favorite book.”

Marie…”

“And do not get me started on that time with the go-kart and that ice cream truck! My parents never let me hear the end of that one-”

Marie!”

Mrs. Hamada jumped at her husband’s shout before following his finger, pointed at their son. She chuckled sheepishly at the horrified expression on Tadashi’s face.

“Yup,” Tadashi decided as he jumped off the couch, “I don’t want a baby!”

With that he ran out of the living room, headed towards his own bedroom. That decided it. There was no way Tadashi would ever like this new baby. He only hoped his parents would understand and decide to cancel their order after all.

Title: Twist of Fate Chapter 3 (Chapter 2 Link)

Chapter Title: Unbelievable

Fandom: Big Hero 6

Summary: Big Hero 6 AU. A small twist of fate can change quite a lot about a story. But, in the end, a brother still grieves. A story that looks to offer a different but familiar approach to the story if a certain something had happened differently.

Warnings: While not present in this chapter, movie spoilers will appear in later chapters.

“What’re you doing?”

Tadashi shut the notebook he’d been drawing in quickly as he turned his chair around to face Hiro. The eleven year old stared at his seventeen year old brother confusedly.

“Okay, now I’m really curious,” Hiro stated before reaching for the book, “What’s in there?”

“You don’t have to know,” Tadashi replied, catching his brother’s arm before it touched the book.

“What’s the big secret?” Hiro asked, trying to climb over Tadashi to get at the book.

Unfortunately for Hiro, puberty had really kicked in for Tadashi, giving the teenager a tall frame. And Tadashi also had some decent muscles on him, thanks to his years of taking karate. Hiro, on the other hand, was still much shorter and scrawnier than other kids his age. The seventeen year old was easily able to hold back his little brother from getting at the book.

“Just a little something I wanna work on in the future,” Tadashi said as he gently shoved his brother off him, “Once I complete it, then you can see it.”

Hiro huffed, his curiosity driving him to try and steal the notebook and find out what this secret project was that Tadashi was planning.

“Anyways, shouldn’t you be getting to bed?” Tadashi pointed at the clock, “It’s getting late. You have school tomorrow.”

“So do you,” Hiro retorted as he plopped down on his bed, arms crossed in front of him.

“Yeah, but tomorrow’s your first day at high school.”

Tadashi didn’t miss that split second look of panic that crossed his little brother’s face.

Hiro had completed the seventh and eighth grade intact, there was that. However, as Tadashi had dreaded, there were more problems after that first fight. While Hiro stayed silent and dodged questions, Tadashi still saw those cuts and bruises the kid was hiding. Other than for a few extreme incidents, the principal never called home much, meaning Hiro was doing his best to keep his problems a secret. Aunt Cass mentioned that his teachers all said that Hiro would constantly talk back to them.

It wasn’t even just that. Hiro appeared to become more and more withdrawn. He spent more time working on his bots than he did going out, even with Tadashi. While he didn’t slack off on homework, he treated it as a chore that wasn’t worth his time.

His little brother was miserable, it was obvious.

“New school, new me, right?” Hiro chuckled nervously, “Well, this’ll be the first time you and me are at the same school, Tadashi!”

“Yeah, but you’re a freshman, I’m a senior,” Tadashi replied, “Our schedules are gonna keep us apart all day. Well, except for lunch.”

Hiro’s whole body seemed to droop at that. The eleven year old flopped onto his back before turning on his side, away from Tadashi. The seventeen year old let out a sigh before going over and taking a seat on Hiro’s bed.

“So…How’s that Megabot of yours coming along?” he asked, trying to take Hiro’s mind off of school.

“It’s missing a few parts,” Hiro murmured, “But it’s getting there.”

“And this is for a bot fight? You know those are illegal, Hiro.”

Betting on them is illegal,” Hiro corrected, turning onto his back to look at Tadashi.

“Can you try not to get yourself arrested?”

“I make no promises.”

Tadashi ruffled Hiro’s hair, causing the younger boy to laugh and push his arm away.

“Seriously though, if I ever catch you at a bot fight…” Tadashi’s voice trailed off, the warning clear.

“Oh yay, I’ll get another famous Tadashi patented lecture!” Hiro cried sarcastically.

“…No one likes a snarker, bonehead.”

“Well, people must hate our family then.”
