[Fic] Epilogue for the Unwanted

I loved Fury Road and I am weak.

Hawke/Fenris, Fury Road AU,  2500 words. Soundtrack.

He comes back six months later with a knife that’s not his, in a car that’s not his, with a veritable armament in his backseat. The Citadel is not as he remembers it—greener, already, grass spilling down over the mountain’s sides, a soft moss creeping along the edges of the earth—but the shouts and whistles as he approaches are the same even if the paint is different. No white ghosts for them now, not anymore; blood instead, and red paint, vivid violent slashes across every nose he sees.

He cocks the shotgun in his lap. Fair enough.

They’re not violent, though, even as they pound fists on his hood and bellow meaningless phrases as he draws closer to the Citadel’s heart. The chained platform hangs at half-mast now, spikes relocated to the outer walls, and he can’t help rolling his head on his shoulders as he throws the beaten DeVille into park and cuts the engine. The tattoos pull a bit, as always, and the newer cut on his shoulder blade twinges as he straightens, but that’s an easy thing to ignore when the crowd is parting around his car like sand opening at the edge of a pit.

He stretches again, steps out of the car, slams the door closed behind him. The shotgun’s in easy view, as is the semi-auto pistol at his hip and his hair too white to be anyone else. The half-lives haven’t lived long enough to go grey in decades.

“Hey,” she says.

“Quark,” Odo said at last. He was pleased to see Quark start at the sound of his voice. The Ferengi turned and gazed up at him.

“Where did you come from?” Quark asked, seemingly flustered. “How long have you been standing there?” Odo did not believe that he was acting, but it was difficult to know with certainty; Quark was nothing if not devious.

“I didn’t come from anywhere,” Odo replied. “I’m always by your side, Quark. How else would I be able to catch you in the act of committing a crime?”

“You haven’t caught me yet,” Quark remarked. “Then again, it’s always been my policy not to break the law.”
 
Odo tried to laugh. It came out as a quick exhalation of breath, a fleeting burst of noise. He had learned much about humor in his life, but it still often required an effort for him to participate and react the way other people did. It was less the result of his changeling nature, he thought, than the philosophical rigidity born of his dedication to justice.

blinddesertrat asked:

"Space, its huge. So huge in fact, that if you lost your car keys in it, they would be almost impossible to find."

Ratchet heard what was being said, and looked at the source of the words. Expecting Ex President Copernicus Quark to be behind those very, oddly narrative words, he found himself very shocked to see someone not dressed in green spandex to be the source. “I’m sorry,” he began. “What?”
(Hello!)

hatepig replied to your post:THROWING THIS ON THE “IMPORTANT THINGS TO DRAW…

but imagine quark getting drunker and drunker and odo finally has to shapeshift into chuck e cheese to lure him out into a waiting police van

when i eventually get around to drawing this i’m going to be stuck wondering whether or not odo’s attempt at mimicking an animatronic character would be more or less horrifying than the actual animatronics
