    Summary

    William Afton appears to be a sensible and put-together man but no one truly knows how deep the rabbit hole of his mind goes. After his eldest son appears to be killed, everything falls apart for him, in more ways than one. Now, his son Michael Afton and ex-best friend Henry Emily are left to find him and clean up the effects of his actions.

    More or less an AU.

    Summary

    "That was Floaty. Or at least, that's what I'm calling him. Fucking kid won't tell us his name," Dream carried on like nothing had happened, and from beside Techno, Wilbur started wheezing like he was dying. "I think he's twelve or thirteen. Wind magic, he's quick and real snarky, very malnourished, blind-"

    "Wait, blind?" Techno peered harder at the communicator. Wilbur stopped laughing. "How the hell is he able to slip by you then?"

    "Uses the air currents like feelers, I think," Dream's breath was coming heavier as he carried on running. "Gets an idea of where things are in relation to him. He doesn't always get it right, sometimes there are cracks in things big enough to feel like an escape route and he slams into a wall. Or he doesn't angle close enough to the ground and trips on things. He's uh-" Dream flipped the communicator around, and Techno blinked as Bad flew through the air, screeching the whole way. "He's slippery."

    ---

    TLDR: Blindinnit has wind magic and gets himself adopted by the Antarctic Empire's royal family.

    Summary

    Once again, the adults of Thessempi ––the shit hole Tommy has deemed his home for some reason–– prove themselves useless. When Tubbo and Ranboo disappear suddenly, leaving no trail but their communicators half buried in the snow, everyone simply assumes them to be dead and move on with their lives. Tommy just wants his friend to be safe and sets off after them, running on half a clue and little sleep. After witnessing Tommy's determination, Purpled decides to join his search and together begin to realize that there is more to their friends' disappearance but not in the way they thought. Between becoming multilingual, making deals with gods, and learning tri-dimentional secrets of the state, they are quickly realizing that this is just the beginning of something massive and that their stories are not quite done after the wars.

    (Content/Trigger Warnings at the start of each chapter, though swearing goes for the entire story)
    SET BEFORE THE HOTEL WAS FINISHED!

    Summary

    Tommy started calling them time loops.

    Every day, he'd wake up in cold sweat, water dripping from his forehead at four in the morning, he and Tubbo would walk down the prime path to say their final goodbyes, they'd leave to travel to the mountain at ten at night, it would take them until sunrise to get to their destination and they'd fight with Dream at the peak of the cliffs. This was where the events diverted.

    But end result was always the same. He'd always die, and then he'd wake up at four in the morning again.

    Or...
    Tommy finds himself stuck in a time loop on the 20th of January and struggles to find a way out before he loses himself completely.

    Summary

    Tommy has always been the fighter.

    He has never been the fought for, and he knows it, with every whisper Tubbo directs at Ranboo, with every glance thrown his way- Tommy knows, the way he wishes he didn't, that they think he's dead.

    If they're so convinced he's still dead, maybe the one good thing left he can do for them is die.

    ---

    Or, Tommy gets addicted to being dead and thinks that nobody cares about him. The people who very much do try to pull him back from the brink before Dream can't resurrect him anymore.
