Relic and I are doing a roleplay where Graham lives and Rumple adopted a kid after Bae left and let me tell you it is fucking fantastic so far.
This is going to shape up to be the most heartbreaking thing ever. I can just feel it.
Delicious, delicious AUs
It’s taking one of my favorite things ever—fairytales and myths—and reworking them already because of the source material but I’m twisting more things and adding in politics and drama between forces of supposedly good and evil and I just…
I need to work out if this can be tweaked down the line to make it original, though I don’t think it will take us terribly long to be in almost entirely new territory anyway, but I want to make this fresh and keep it and yes.

We don’t tend to do ‘fill in the blanks’ AUs or just ‘hey what happens after that’ ones for that matter. We have a tendency to go: “Those are neat pieces but I think it’d be better if we rearranged them like this" and then go on to construct an entirely new world around it with their puzzle pieces shoved in.
For the first time in forever, I’m brainstorming and coming up with really neat plot ideas for a fic that Silver and I are working on and…
One, thank god my funk seems to have finally dissipated.
Two, it’s twisting a lot of things in this fic into AU ideas that are really interesting and I’m wondering how much I would need to change to make it original down the line because it is awesome.
It’s probably both, Will.
