@eulenstadt and I were talking about an AU in which Jacobi and Maxwell end up emergancy babysitters for Anne Eiffel (and an AU where everyone is ALIVE). It was hilarious so I am going to share.
Jacobi and Maxwell use Anne to pretend they are actually real adults and not vaguely horrific people when out and about. “We’re the guardians of this small deaf child, clearly we’re responsible and not at all special intelligence operatives for an evil mega-corporation.” “We’ve never even killed anybody.” “Definitely not more than one person.”
The Wonder Twins pick up ASL very quickly, Jacobi’s used to using hand signals on the ballistics range when he and his coworkers wear ear protection and literally cannot hear one another. Maxwell’s just a really fast learner.
They use Anne as an excuse to go do things they want to do. I.e. Laser tag.
Jacobi: “Anne wants to play laser tag.”
Maxwell: “How do you know, you didn’t even sign anything to her.”
Jacobi: “ANNE wants to play LASER TAG.”
Maxwell: “…Anne definitely wants to play laser tag.”
And so they play laser tag. This is a learning experience all around.
Jacobi and Maxwell teach Anne tactics both legitimate and definitely cheating.
Jacobi and Maxwell learn how to have a third person (who isn’t Colonel Kepler) on their team.
Maxwell teaches Anne how to build basic robots out of cans and wires. Jacobi teaches her how to make Molotov Cocktails. They burn stuff in a near-by field where a normal babysitter might take a kid to set off baking soda rockets.
Anne REALLY likes that Jacobi and Maxwell don’t treat her like a kid but like a tiny adult. She doesn’t realize this isn’t so much on purpose as because Jacobi and Maxwell have no idea how to act around children.
Anne also REALLY likes Jacobi’s robotic arm. She loves the idea that he’s a grown-up unaffiliated with her school who has a disability, in his case that he’s an amputee.
Anne looks up to Maxwell as this amazing unstoppable wonder.
During dress-up Maxwell is given a crown and dubbed Queen Computer. Later changed to Queen SQL at Maxwell’s behest. She demands Jacobi call her Queen SQL for the rest of the night.
Anne and Jacobi argue like two children. They are building a block tower and one of them screws it up. When it falls they immediately start blaming each other. “You messed up the foundation!” “You tried to build it too high!” “You nudged it!” “No way!” “I saw you!”
This slowly devolves into “You’re stupid!” “Your face is stupid!”
Maxwell stares at the camera like she’s on The Office.
“Jacobi, she’s six.” “SIX AND WRONG!”
So in other words, Maxwell is her hero, Jacobi is her playmate. It works out well. Maxwell thinks Anne is adorable (especially for a human child), Jacobi both has an affection for her and wants to punt her out a window sometimes.
Maxwell is going to make sure Anne becomes a badass when she grows up. Jacobi is going to make sure she knows how to take care of herself.
Eventually Anne makes up name signs for them both. Maxwell’s is “S” and “Q” while also signing “crown” (she only has two hands so she can’t get the “L” in there). Jacobi is a “J” over her right arm (she really likes that Jacobi is just some rando who is like her). Jacobi petitioned for it to be a “J” that turned into the sign for “fire” but it was dubbed too difficult by Maxwell and Anne.
Maxwell strikes a bargain to make Anne take a bath. When she gets out they can paint Jacobi’s nails. Jacobi is not privy to this bargain until it is too late.
Jacobi: “WHY CAN’T SHE PAINT YOUR NAILS?!”
Maxwell: “Because I hate nail polish!”
Jacobi: “AND I DON’T?!”
Maxwell: “You need to step outside of these preconceived gender roles you–”
Jacobi: “Don’t try to make me better myself. I hate bettering myself and you know it.”
He gets his nails painted. He swears them both to secrecy and whines about it the entire time.
Later, after Anne goes to bed Jacobi peels the nail polish off and bitches at Maxwell. “Shut up, Jacobi.” “SHE’S DEAF, MAXWELL, SHE CAN’T HEAR ME!” “I know, but I can.”
Doug comes home and everyone is in one piece. Anne wakes up to tell him about her day.
Anne tells him about laser tag. “Daddy, we kicked ass!” Maxwell immediately regrets teaching Anne that sign. She blames Jacobi when Doug gives them a wounded look.
Anne: “Jacobi taught me how to make cocktails!”
Doug: *absolute horror* “WHAT–?!”
Jacobi: *quickly, because he still wants Eiffel to pay them* “Nothing alcoholic!”
Doug: “Thank God–”
Jacobi: “MOLOTOV cocktails.”
Doug: “THAT’S JUST AS BAD!”
Jacobi: “It’s a really important skill! What if she wants to start a riot!?”
Doug: “WHY WOULD SHE NEED TO START A RIOT, ‘SPLOSION MAN?!”
Jacobi: “Lots of reasons!”
After much argument about how making incendiaries is NOT AN IMPORTANT LIFE SKILL Jacobi says “I had to teach myself! I saved your curtains, half your kitchen, and a visit to the emergancy room.”
Eiffel pays them like they’re two teenagers.
As they go out to the car Jacobi and Maxwell congratulate themselves on a job well done.
