Wow okay so
WIR AU and Spoilers under the break because idk why but I can’t put a read more on a Picture post. That’s stupid. Someone should fix that. FEEEELLLLIIIIIXXX!!!!!
Anyway.Wreck-It Ralph AU where Ralph doesn’t end up saving Vanellope. Calhoun does end up destroying the entrance to Sugar Rush, and Litwak ends up pulling the plug, but not before Vanellope is consumed by the Cybugs.
Now after the plug is pulled, a gaming enthusiast purchases the Sugar Rush cabinet from the arcade, insisting that he can fix the game himself.
Well, the new owner of Sugar Rush does manage to fix it up, and the game, including all of its citizens, is reset to factory settings. All except for Vanellope, the only one who could not escape from the old game. Her code remains and so do her memories, while the other citizens of Sugar do not remember the pain that they (technically did not) inflict on her. But Vannelope does. And while she has now been risen back up to her original Princess status by the other players, and while the Cybugs disappeared when the new owner of Sugar Rush rebooted the game, she still retains traces of the Cybugs and their cruelty, which became embedded into her code when the plug was suddenly pulled (hence the sour licorice and fireball in place of the red vines and mint in her hair, and overall different color scheme). Because of her memories, and the Cybug traces in her code, she is in turn cruel to the citizens of Sugar Rush, although they have no memory of why their sweet-as-sugar princess would do such horrible things to them. Idk, maybe she even held executions in the courtyards of the palace for the racers who were particularly mean to her- Taffyta, Candlehead, Rancis-and being that they were in their own game, they would regenerate every time, just to endure another round of Vannelope’s wrath. Finally, they rebelled against their cruel ruler, and outcasted her from the game. Now, being that Sugar Rush was plugged into a gamer’s house and not an arcade, she did not go Turbo in the traditional sense, but rather hopped around from electrical device to electrical device, into whatever was plugged into the wall outlets. She now causes mayhem in the background of television shows, corrupts game save files, crashes internet connections, etc.
sorry if this makes no sense and/or is rambly or sounds stupid. It’s midnight and I don’t really feel like looking this over and I really should be getting to bed, not making AUs.
