I have an AU-ing problem
Max, as usual when monster-fied, is a vampire. Kev is, shockingly, an incubus. And (not pictured here) Edwards is a naga.
(Early is also a vampire, Melody and Noelle are witches or some shit, and I think Sharp is doing the whole vampire detective helping-the-helpless thing, because that is how she fucking rolls okay man OKAY) (I have no idea about anyone else okay I just have a lot of feelings)
Here, it’s Max’s birthday, let me ramble about this AU and, to some extent, Max himself.
RAMBLING IS WHAT I DO BEST, YOU KNOW.
Anyway, this AU: Vamps are pretty vampy. Their eyes are sort of a reddish black normally, but they do shark out from bloodlust. Or blood/lust. Sex and blood are very tied up together for vamps in this universe. Which, well, okay, that’s pretty typical. Anyway, Max isn’t all that into it.
Here’s where the rambling about Max in general comes into play! Max is ace. Or demi, really. He generally tends to self-identify as such when that’s a thing in his universe. He’s not usually that into sex.
BACK TO THIS AU: apparently being vamped has some sort of supernatural effect on your sex drive! Many/most vampires are almost hypersexual, which sort of makes sense, as it’s the way the tend to attract their prey (ie, humans) because they are, well, attractive.
Max had pretty much just figured out all his sexuality stuff when his dad turned him. I’m just going to skate over how fucked up that is (since sex and blood are so intertwined for vamps in this story, it is kind of totally fucked up) and was basically magically pushed into a place where he abruptly has a higher desire for sex and everyone fucking finds him attractive and he is not particularly happy about it.
As an aside: Max’s father is kind of not a great person. He is especially not a great father. Their relationship often veers towards abusive. You may imagine how this applies to this universe.
Max has the unhappiest monster!verse story so far. SORRY MAX. I WOULD NOT TORTURE YOU IF I DID NOT LOVE YOU.
