“Come on, Darky, the real you is so much more interesting.”

So yeah, here’s the biggest piece I think I’ve ever done. Took me FOREVER. Still, it’s a thing I made to kinda explain a bit about Wilford and Ducius’ relationship. For one, Wilford is the only one that calls Ducius and Mendax by their fandom names because he knows they hate it. He is also constantly trying to coax Ducius out of his shell. If you remember, Mark talked about the one moment in ADWM as Dark keeping his composure and his shell breaking, so I played with that concept. Ducius is a species of demon known for insane amounts of physical strength and brutality, but he certainly doesn’t act like it. He’s very clean cut and put together most of the time. However, if you can anger him enough he will tap into that natural strength, and at that point you are FUCKED. Like, I’m talking ripping your head off, shredding you limb from limb, ripping your still beating heart out of your chest kinda shit. He hates this form because he loses all inhibitions while in it. Which means, his morals are gone in this form, he’ll attack anyone who happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, friend or foe. Ducius likes control, and as powerful as this form is, that’s the one thing he loses. However, Wilford just LOVES to coax him into this state because he knows how much Ducius hates it. Wilford is, at his core, jealous of how revered Ducius is in demon society, so he’ll take any measures he needs to in order to put Ducius in this place. Its more difficult to do while he’s out of his shell of course, but by doing so, Wilford has beaten the best of Ducius, and that’s a real blow to anyone’s reputation. Just a side note, Ducius and Mendax are my names for Dark and Anti in the Fanfiction this is tied to, Dead Reckoning. I’ve explained it more in other posts of mine if you are interested. Thanks!
