I smile when fanfic authors add a ‘the __________ AU that no one asked for’ note in the summary because oh buddy I didn’t ask for it but I still need it and want it and I love you

my favorite thing about au fanfiction the sheer range of it. how like sometimes the tag is like “alternate universe- they’re werewolf space pirates in charge of stopping their planet from being blown up by ancient immortal aliens from another realm” and sometimes it’s “alternate universe- chefs”

Accurate.

Or sometimes it’s just: “alternate universe – where everything’s the same except X thing didn’t happen because it was stupid and bad writing.” 

its okay, you can say age of Ultron
