Agent Maine with thick dark hair. Hair he is actually kinda proud of. But then enter Sigma. With his ai, Maine starts to feel pain. It hurts. It doesn’t stop. Nothing the doctors do makes it stop. Maine starts pulling at his hair. At least that pain distracts him from the headaches, though it also starts forming bald spots. But it still hurts. It still doesn’t stop.
To counter this destructive behavior those of the project decide to shave his head. And it stops the hair pulling but it doesn’t stop the headaches. It just doesn’t.
The Meta doesn’t care about his hair. Doesn’t care about pain. Maine does. And it still hurts. All the voices. They just don’t stop. Soon Maine finds himself with his hair back, but only in patches. He is only in left with patches.
Nothing helps. The pain is still there. Until one day it isn’t.
last night I had a dream I owned a huge-ass grove of maple trees (which were called cherry trees but they were most definitely maple trees) and seto fucking kaiba was trying to bully me into selling my trees so he could build a kaibacorp office or something.
me being the brat I am told him exactly where he could shovethat office building and said fuck off and when he tried to argue with me dark necrofear?? showed up from behind a tree??? and she slapped him across the face so hard he fell onto the ground as she bent over and screamed at him don’t take his fucking trees
i should probably avoid pain medication before bed.
Okay - so I’m going to throw this into the Bughead!void.
There aren’t very many fics where Juggie is the murderer.
In fact, Fugueis one of the few I’ve ever seen even a Dark!Juggie (and when I say Dark! I mean like dark stalker Juggie). Maybe it’s my love for American Horror Story - but can someone please write me a dark dark Juggie. Like a Jug who might be a little more than just a tiny bit sociopathic? A Jug who doesn’t have a problem maiming someone (especially if they’re gonna hurt/hit on/be involved with Betty) - and who plots and plans and is dark!? Still the writer, broody, sardonic Jug we love… only a bit more like Dexter?
I mean - I don’t want him to ever hurt Betty - He LOVES Betty and would hurt anyone who even looked at her funny let alone touches her - and I’d even go so far as putting it out there that Betty could be a little bit dark herself (especially if we don’t know about it at first and it’s a surprise even to Juggie) but seriously - Dark!Jug is a severely underutilized trope in this fandom and a story like that, if done well, could be a freaking amazing epic piece of fanfictional literature. And I’m here for it.
At least, I know /I/ would love it anyway. Anyone want to just write ME a story?
