Fantasy AU with book & movie elements. Young Nicholas St. North is Bandit King, who breaks into the hall of the Nightmare King to steal a rumored great treasure, only to find that said ‘treasure’ is a captive (and extremely rare) ice spirit – Jack Frost. He goes through with the theft anyway, leaving him to figure out what to do with the treasure now that he has him.
Either father/son relationship or romance is fine! I just want the focus to be on their relationship. Plus, the world needs more young!North. Such a dashing young scallywag deserves love.
+ The other Guardians as North’s band of thieves.
++ Pitch tries to reclaim his property.
++++If romance: Jack falls for North first and has to persuade him due to (real or perceived) age difference.
