Based off this prompt by sirsquidfish-thefirst:
- who’s in the front, who’s in the middle, and who’s in the back
- who acts like it’s not going to be a big deal but actually screams at the top of their lungs when someone in the group’s hand brushes their arm
- who’s scared about going in but they’re the only one who keeps their cool
- who keeps narrating their adventure in a deep voice as they wander through the haunted house
- and, of course, who loses their shoe as they run out of the attraction
ahin reblogged it and I HAD to write it.
"Will," Tessa said evenly, "you’re going to break my hand if you keep that up." Nevermind that Tessa was gripping Will’s just as tightly as they wandered through the attraction.
Will had boldly suggested that the trio go into the carnival’s haunted house. He’d also stated that he would protect Tessa and Jem from any harm that might come to them. Nevermind that it was a haunted house and the actors weren’t allowed to touch them, no. Nevermind that Jem would have broken their hands for laying a hand on any of the three of them anyways.
Will had led the party in first, Tessa was second, and Jem followed up in the rear. Jem had politely said that it was because he would make sure that neither Tessa nor Will would get lost. In reality, Jem had spent the entirety of the walk through the haunted house narrating in a deep voice that under different circumstances would have put a pleasant tingle in Tessa’s stomach. As things were, Jem’s narration was causing Will to become overly paranoid.
“James Carstairs,” Will spoke up in the middle of Jem’s long explanation of what skeletons would do to prisoners of war in the depths of the house’s basement. “Knock it off. You’re scaring Tessa.” He added firmly. Tessa was rather amused by this statement, mainly because Will had yet to relax his grip on her hand. She was actually holding up rather well, she thought. She hadn’t screamed once, while Will had shrieked like a schoolgirl on several occasions. Jem had seemed unimpressed by the whole thing, saying how Western horror lore was nothing compared to Eastern horror.
“Oh relax.” Jem said affectionately. The hand he was holding Tessa’s in wasn’t sweaty or in a vice grip. “We’re almost out anyways. Look, there’s the exit sign.” He pointed it out, and Will’s sigh of relief was audible. The Herondale not so subtly picked up their pace as they came closer to leaving.
Suddenly a door to their right banged open, a masked man wielding a chainsaw in its wake. Tessa jumped, feeling Jem’s arms go around her protectively. The man revved his chainsaw, laughing maniacally at the trio.
A shrill scream sounded and suddenly Will was gone. Tessa looked towards the exit to see her boyfriend rounding the corner in a dead sprint, a shoe left in his wake. On the other hand, Jem was still behind her when he began laughing hysterically. Tessa turned to looked towards him in utter confusion, and her boyfriend pointed to the duck that was waddling close to the chainsaw man’s door.
She started laughing too, and the chainsaw guy looked down to spy the duck.
“Aw, man.” He said, his voice slightly muffled behind his mask. “One of the ducks got in again. You know, there’s a whole pond full of them just outside the exit.” He explained. “Like twenty of them, just-”
Another scream sounded in the night.
So Capt Jack got his ‘Pirate’ brand for liberating slaves. Yes I want this story told.

After a nuclear explosion, the world came into chaos. People have tried to escape reality through a virtual game called “Wasteland”. In order to score points and survive, players must kill their opponents. These points are traded for real money. For every hundred kills the sum increases by 20%. The nature of the game is to prepare psychologically skilled soldiers to fight in mind-controlled machines. In the game, you can play single or in a group. The money is then shared evenly if you participate in a group, however, the money is received once you register your group’s members outside of the game. By joining a group you run the risk of being betrayed and killed before receiving the money.
There are many areas in the game which resemble the real world but radioactive creatures have been seen roaming around. In the forest, one of the most skilled players, Killua, is going for his 100th kill. After finding another boy hiding behind the bushes, he ambushes him thinking it’s going to be an easy kill. He was not aware though of the other boy’s quick reflexes. Knowing the forest like it was his home, the other boy maneuvered around the trees and soon enough caught Killua in a trap. What Killua did not expect thoughwas for the other boy to reveal his identity and offer a truce. The other boy, Gon, wanted to form an alliance with him and promises to never betray him. Killua of course doesn’t trust him but accepts becoming allies since he could kill him later. Despite being wary of possible betrayal, Killua noticed that Gon never backed down on his word. Not ever hinting of attacking him even once. And that’s when Killua’s life takes a twist and their fight for survival begins.
This is an AU I thought of at school, so I decided to write an intro and design some character profiles. It’s set in a post-apocalyptic world; “Wasteland” refers to the waste of humans as beings that are only worth depending on their potential warfare value in this context. I don’t know if I plan to go further with this, but I really liked the concept so maybe I will explore some ideas in the future. Hope you like it! (refs: + + +)
