Strange Magic AU

AKA I ask for so little in life. 

So give me this, wont you?


I ask for so little in life. 

So what if one of these things is a Strange Magic AU of Tangled.

So what if one of these things is a Strange Magic Tangled AU where the moonlight in Marianne’s wings creates a love potion. A love potion that is known and fabled of throughout all the Kingdoms and which many wish to claim for their own.

So what if one of these things is her being locked away by her Kingdom for years, for fear that her strange “gift” would bring too much hatred or unwanted attention, showing her off to suitors instead until she fell in love with a Knight who she showed her odd power to. That at night her wings could produce a magic stronger and more awful than hatred. And it could be bottled and used and how it could never be seen by anyone.

So what if one of these things is him promising silence, and instead making love potions while she was asleep, charming young women and giving away as many as he could for the right price.

So what if one of these things is the Bog King being one of the people to take a bottle. 

So what if one of these things is his heart breaking, knowing he’s too hideous for even a potion to give him what he desires and craves.

So what if one of these things is Marianne finding out about Roland seducing women with love potions, catching him in the act. Breaking away from him to go off on her own despite her fathers insistence of a dangerous world that was after her for her gift.

So what if one of these things is her taking up sword fighting to prove that she can defend herself if and when someone tries to use her like that again. A way to keep away danger. A way to keep away trouble. A way to keep away love from the one making it. 

So what if one of these things is the idea that the one being to create love was, in her mind, destined never to have it.

And so what if one of these things is a plot where Bog finds out just how the love potion was made, and steals away Marianne to destroy her before anyone else can create one. Ready to kill her for the good of a nation. Ready to kill to protect the hearts of others before they can be broken like his. Whisking her off into the unknown lands of the Dark Forest where no Fairy has dared to cross. And those who have have never returned. 

So what if one of these things is them getting ambushed, distracted, raided, taken and found again, going on an adventure to a place where he’ll eventually have her killed.

So what if one of these things is them fighting bandits together and eventually fighting each other. Her protecting herself and him doing his best to show off what he can do. 

And so what if one of these things is Bog falling in love with her and blaming it on the powers that she’s been unjustly given. 

And so what if one of these things is Roland chasing after them trying to get ahold of a potion to charm Marianne herself.

So what if one of these things is Roland getting his hands on Marianne, but her fighting back and winning, Bog coming to her rescue, but ending up merely fighting with her instead, the two of them combining forces to create one amazing friendship sparring team against a similar foe.

So what if one of these things is Bog not paying attention for one second. One tiny second. And so what if one of these things is Roland attacking him, knowing that if he takes the one thing Marianne loves perhaps he can finally win.

And so what if one of these things is Bog getting stabbed, having one last moment with his love, his new dream, and cutting off her wings so no one can use them against her again, freeing her from a world he was too blind in his hatred to see was just as much against her as it was him. 

So. What

Goddammit I ask for so little

So. Fucking. Little.
