    Summary

    Anxiety wasn’t sure the other ‘dark’ sides had really thought it through when they’d decided to leave him home alone for a week while they did whatever it was they were doing. Not that he didn’t want to be- having the house to himself was great- but it was stressful being responsible for everything that needed to get done around here until they came back.

    Like, for example, right now he had the responsibility of taking food down to their prisoner, who he’d never even gone near before. Morality. The others said he was dangerous, incredibly powerful without the suppressing chains they had him in. He was the one who put them here, in this house on the outskirts of the mind where it was always night, the one who had banished them to the darkness. He hated them all, apparently, and Anxiety was just a little terrified of him. Deceit had captured him somehow a few months ago, and he’d been locked in the basement ever since, supposedly so they could keep him from locking them out of the mind entirely, and Anxiety had been warned not to go down there. And now, for some reason, they were entrusting all this to him. He wondered if he’d done something to offend Malice recently.

    Summary

    “That’s not-” The man cut himself off.

    Around them humans and androids alike started to fade.

    “All living things…” The android said, and smiled for the first time, as they tipped their head back and stared at the sky until their vision went black.

    (Spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War, and Detroit Become Human)

    A post-infinity war AU based on musings with friends in a dbh discord. I blame you two (you know who you are).

    I tried to write all the relationships so that they can be seen as platonic or romantic. Whichever you'd prefer.

    Summary

    Tony's voice echoed in the cavern, hollow against the walls. “Are you out of your mind? That thing's going to take your head off!”

    The snake, however, did not move- did not even seem to be watching his teammate approach. And almost as though in response to his own voice, the sound from before came again, long and trembling- midway between a moan and a sob. This time, when his eyes darted in search of the source, the darkness did not block his sight: the naked figure of a man lay stretched beneath the snake, bound to an outcropping of rock. He was all ribs and sharp ridges of bone, all too-thin pale limbs, all open sores on top from the places the venom had splattered and on the bottom where the rock had rubbed away the flesh. The man's face, directly below the snake's mouth, had gotten the worst of it; it was raw and red, glistening with blood and exposed muscle and the slick of poison. The man shouldn't have been alive, much less moving, and yet he was- was thrashing weakly in his bonds, turning his head as far as it would go to avoid the white liquid as it dribbled down. It was not far enough.

    Tony thought he was going to be sick again.

    Summary

    It's captivating. Prompto's probably going to have thirty-eight photos of it for them to relive the experience, in vivid detail, later on.

    But Prompto's not taking pictures anymore, Noct realizes. The camera's stopped.

    And when Noctis looks over to see what the matter is, Prompto's just staring through the view-finder, head angled up. He's gone absolutely sheet-white – looks like he might pass out. He says, "Noct," very softly, like it's a plea.

    Then the world explodes, and something slams into Noctis with the force of a subway train, and everything goes dark.
