More dark headcannons
Ok just to preface this- marks been talking a lot about his nightmares in five nights at candys 3 so And the story he told today got me thinkin about this and it not really a theory more like an idk story for idk an au I guess cause it’s not real life nor is it dark cannon and I don’t wanna make fun of marks nightmares and stuff cause that wouldn’t be fair to do that so… this is more of an au headcannon I guess—
Ok so what if dark is what’s causing mark to have nightmares… he wakes up and can’t move dark watching him from the corner slowly moving closer but mark breaks free and he leaves. The stronger dark gets the worse the nightmares are. Mark was even talking about the one he had as a kid where he drew the shadowy figure- what if it was dark- because darks from another dimension and he can make the time loops -what if he time traveled what if he’s been stalking mark since he was little- constantly giving him bad dreams and waking nightmares- mark finally was able to draw him one night- get a glimpse at the shadowy figure in the doorway- now that’s he’s more aware of dark he’s less scared of the nightmares but still scared of the hold he has on him. Still scared of the darkness that lurks in his dreams and holds him immobile at night.
And imagine like dark watching mark grow up knowing what he’s going to become and just hating him the whole time as a kid, but the night mark draws him standing there he knows that everything’s set in stone he can’t change what marks gonna become because mark saw him and in doing so his “future ” I guess and because of like time paradoxes now it can’t be altered or changed with basically screws with darks chances to ruin him in the past.
It’s just a cool au story I came up with but I liked it ;) I’d like to think that if dark was defeated Mark could sleep with happy dreams instead of nightmares and waking terrors.
