    Summary

    In a world where everyone is born with abilities (supernatural powers), Tommy is born powerless. He and his parents were shunned for it, and they took their anger out on him, eventually abandoning him in the slums, the part of their city most people, and most heroes, pretend doesn't exist.

    Tommy isn't one to give up that easily, though. He'll survive, no matter what it takes. He doesn't need heroes or anything of the sort.

    And he was surviving just fine until Phil, Wilbur, and Techno come along, disturbing his peaceful days of lazing around and stealing from street stalls.

    (also everyone is aged down two years. There is no reason I just screwed up the timeline :)

    Summary

    Fowers in his hair and statues looming over his head, Tommy fell like a doomed asteroid after Dream took his would-be final life. When he hit the ground, the earthquake tremors rattled through the dirt house he used to call a home and confined him within its grassy walls.

    With Dream imprisoned and Tommy free, Tommy should’ve been able to breathe deep and live his life. But he was tired, and even the sun’s soft, warm touch on his skin felt like burning fists punching through his fragile frame.

    Tubbo just wants his friend back. Ranboo wants to mend bridges. Tommy wants everything, and he wants nothing at all.

    Summary

    Tubbo wakes from a dream of fire and smoke to find Tommy shaking him.

     

     

     

    Tommy is bright, is loud, is irritating and joyful and a force of unbridled chaos. So when, seemingly overnight, his laughs turn brittle and his eyes turn shadowed, and flinches start to punctuate every movement he makes, no one knows why, or what to do about it.

    Tubbo and Wilbur are concerned, to say the least. And they're not the only ones.

    (Meanwhile, Tommy is desperately trying to prevent a nightmare from happening to everyone he knows. And if he has to sacrifice himself to make this the best possible timeline, so be it.)

    Summary

    “Please, Tommy, just think about it! Wilbur’s - he’s not good for you, man, he’s - he’s not good for any of us -”

    “Shut the fuck up,” Tommy says, breathless, “for Prime’s sake, holy shit. You’re leaving.”

    And there’s no doubt about it. The longer Tommy stares at his best friend, the more he recognizes the fighting stance, the stubborn set of his shoulders - and the more he doesn’t recognize, like how Tubbo wears a shirt with a taller collar and how his hands drift to his neck every five seconds only to be uselessly shoved away. The firework scars paint a jagged spiderweb over everything.

    There’s no doubt about it. This conversation is a formality. Tubbo is leaving, with or without him, and he is not coming back.

    ~

    Las Nevadas? The Syndicate? Snowchester? What are you talking about? It’s November in Pogtopia, and Quackity, Niki, and Tubbo are going to change everything for the better.

    Or, the canon-divergence story where one decision improves the lives of literally everyone - except Tommy, whose life gets exponentially worse, actually.
