I had this medival au where Tord became a wanted criminal for attempting to kill the king (Edd) so is now travelling to find a relic that has the ability to grant one wish every century, allowing him to get revenge. On the way he meets another criminal named Pat and a smuggler with a giant bird (Paul). Together they go on a giant adventure and bonds form, but when they finally find the relic, they run into Pay who wants to use it to bring Sharpie back. Angst happens and Pat has to make a choice.

It’s not uncommon for wanting a pain to end so much that you’d rather forget than live through it, that when someone says he or she wishes for some event to be gone, it’s simply erased. It’s not an uncommon thing to occur, but it sure as hell isn’t ignored. You see, there is a world that allows for wishes of the matter. These erasers, well, they’re called the Erasers. They’re not some punk garage or indie rock band singing about girls and screwing. No, they’re the people who grant your wish to forget. They actually make it happen. One minute you’re crying your heart out, aching to forget, and the next minute, you actually do- all thanks to them.
It’s not always an unnatural occurrence for someone to wake up remembering, and then suddenly forgetting. A modern spin it is usually the justification of ‘getting older.’ It’s why nearly most teenagers and adults can’t seem to remember things at certain moments of their lives. Those memories that’ve been ached to be forgotten have gone ‘poof!’ like magic. Not quite though. It’s a job description for only the ones who could not forget no matter how hard they wished and their Eraser tried. This is because eventually old Erasers need to retire, while new ones replace them.
In total, now, there must’ve been at least thirty. but they’re diminishing. Erasers were losing their touch, at least that’s what Jungkook thought. He believed that ones that couldn’t even fulfill their task just weren’t up for the jobs. Except, it wasn’t just any round of jobs that were causing these poor Erasers to fail.
Nope. It was just one job by one person. You to be exact. You were unlike most people, even if your problem paralleled everyone else’s: heartbreak. Your heart had been snapped in two, literally, from what the dark doe-eyed boy accessed. Things in their world, though it did not differ any meter from yours, were taken slightly more seriously, which explained why there was normality in seeing how your bright red heart was beating in two different places in your chest.
