So here's a scenario I've thought up for a human AU, mainly involving Mangle:
All her life, Mangle had been bullied. She was never exactly pretty, and a lot of the teasing came from all the acne she had, leading to kids calling her "Pizza Face." Then one day, to put the final nail in the coffin, she barely survived a freak car accident.
With all her limbs broken, she would be wheel-chair-bound for the rest of her life. Teasing was rarer (Good News: No one called her Pizza Face anymore. Bad News: Now they called her Mangle), but now everyone would avoid her or shake their heads with pity. Her only consolation was her makeup kit, where she would sit in front of the bathroom for hours "drawing" and "painting" her face. It didn't make her less ugly (in fact, most people found her even more terrifying with makeup), but it was something she liked to do and it calmed her.
One day, after she was transferred to a "disabled" class, she met a boy with a hook for a hand playing with blocks. He was known as "Foxy," a messy redhead who caused all sorts of trouble and gave the teachers a lot of grief, such as sneaking behind other kids and scaring them or running down the halls. Mangle looks at the blocks longingly, when Foxy sees her. He's intimidated by her at first, but he shakes it off and invites her to play pirates with him and join "his crew." Mangle crawls out of her wheel-chair and they play together for hours. They become close friends, and Mangle chases Foxy by wheeling after him in the hall, much to the distress of the adults.
Eventually, Foxy introduces Mangle to his other friends: Freddy, Bonnie, and Chica. While resembling little angels who always received good grades, they're just as much mischief makers as Foxy is. The five of them have a lot of fun causing mayhem at school; while Freddy, Bonnie, and Chica were subtle, Foxy and Mangle were wilder and often sent to detention. This meant that Foxy and Mangle didn't get to see the other three as often, and sometimes, they felt a little left out. Eventually, even Foxy started to avoid Mangle, hoarding things she couldn't see and making excuses that he was busy. She wonders if maybe he wasn't her friend after all…
One day, Mangle wheels her way home after an average, boring day. She opens the door:
"Happy Birthday!" Foxy popped up from the side and winked.
While she had been away, Freddy, Bonnie, Chica and Foxy had set up a surprise party for their new friend. All this time, Foxy had been squirreling away gifts for her, and wanted to keep them a secret. They spend the rest of the day laughing, eating cake and pizza and ice cream, and playing games.
And that was how Mangle met her new best friends.This post has been crossposted with Dreamwidth at http://shamanicshaymin.dreamwidth.org/102613.html. Pick your poison. Mwoiiiiiiiing~!
