I saw the latest post on the BH6-au-ideas tumblr and thought you might like it. It’s part 2 of a crossover/fusion between BH6 and Descendants. It looks a bit intriguing and I was wondering what you thought of it.

Ah, okay, you mean these posts, right? Or at least the ones that are connected… It’s definitely very interesting, and I do appreciate how OP has adapted the BH6 characters into the Descendants world. They’ve clearly put a lot of thought and effort into it and I like the decisions they’ve made for who’s related to who… but it’s not really my cup of tea, I think.

It’s a lot of characters to juggle, and it almost feels like the BH6 crew kinda of usurp the Descendants kids. Which, I mean, given the blog is called BH6-au-ideas makes sense–of course they’re going to focus on the BH6 crew–but I almost wonder if it wouldn’t be better to just either full on replace the Descendants kids (that is, Honey Lemon isn’t Evie older sister, she just takes Evie’s place, same with Fred and Ben, etc.) or, have them be separate and adjacent to the Descendants kids? Like–these are the villain kids left behind on the Isle, angry that they weren’t chosen? Or these are hero kids that we didn’t get the chance to see.

Personally, if I were to do this I’d most likely do just a straight crossover–no fusion at all. Because, I mean, Hiro and Baymax literally go through a portal into a different dimension. Like… whose to say that dimension isn’t basically the space in between universes?

And then, well, you can kind of go in two different directions–either Hiro and Baymax (and Abigail?) appear on the Isle or they appear in Auradon. Does Callaghan also go into the portal? Well, you can sort of hand wave some minor canon divergence and say he does. In which case, it’d be interesting to decide who appears where.

Because on the one hand, Callaghan as Yokai on the Isle essentially hijacking the villains while Auradon is distracted by Ben’s exchange students and the sudden appearance of Hiro, Baymax, and Abigail could be cool.

But what might be even more fun is if Hiro, Baymax and Abigail end up on the Isle having to make do with scraps to rebuild the portal, whereas Callaghan schmoozes and charms the royalty by saying a villain (aka Hiro) has stolen his technology (either Baymax or the nanobots). And then there’s the big Abigail is still alive reveal. So…

I mean if you REALLY want to hand wave some minor canon divergence, you can have the entire crew get sucked into the portal (because, well, giant dimension crossing portals in the sky) and end up in the Descendants world.

I guess if I were to try more on the fusion side, rather than strict crossover, I’d probably… hm… without directly replacing the Descendants kids OR having them completely derail the movie plot…

OH! Okay… so… I don’t super know if the ages would match up or if someone would have to be de-aged, but Honey Lemon as Snow White’s daughter (or niece via Rose Red). Which will make it interesting because both she and Evie are super into chemistry. [[Actually… given that the main four Lost kids are 16ish, maybe they’re looking into colleges? Or Auradon Prep alumni come back for the coronation? So that everyone is still the same ages as they are in their respective movie…]]

Anyway, so… wouldn’t it be interesting if each of the Lost kids matched up to a BH6 member? So… Wasabi as Audrey’s older brother who, during his own time at Auradon Prep preferred science to sports and wasn’t really that cool despite being royalty. But, you know, he stuck with what he wanted/was passionate about despite what his parents would have preferred. Alternatively, son of Tiana and Naveen who did encourage him to follow his dreams even if that means not being the stereotypical prince.

I do rather like GoGo as Aladdin and Jasmine’s kid, as the OP suggested–and like hell she’d put up with Jay’s bravado. Although I have heard, alternatively, that Jay is actually Aladdin and Jasmine’s kid that Jafar stole. And, I mean, the naming convention does still apply as Jasmine’s son. (And he was totally channeling street rat Aladdin in the movie). So maybe… ooh. What if GoGo was adopted (as a once street rat herself?) whereas Jay is the biological son of Aladdin and Jasmine.

And, I dunno why, I just really like the idea of the Hamada brothers basically being the sons of the Radcliffes (is that their name? the ones with all the dalmatians) and, well, considering their aunt has a Lucky Cat Cafe. Although maybe the Hamada family used to have a lot more cats but Cruella actually succeeded in making a fur coat out of their cats. Okay, sorry. That just got super morbid. My bad. Anyway, technology and creativity setting you free etc etc for Carlos.

Fred, obviously, is also a royal. But I’d rather not have him be Ben’s older brother, mostly because the whole line of succession thing and just why is Ben king at 16? I’m trying to think of which royal family would suit him best though… because on the one hand, him being the slobby older brother of Chad Charming could be hilarious, but on the other hand he’s pretty spot on for what I imagine either Rapunzel and Eugene OR Anna and Kristoff raising their kid as. Like, yeah, he’s still royalty. But not really the kind of royalty that uh, sorry to cross tracks but, would “play the game of thrones” you know?

Uh… yeah, sorry about that. I kind of totally derailed your question. Or my own answer. Uh, I haven’t slept in forty hours so… please excuse any… strangeness in this post.

Untitled (2015-01-18)

The Big Heroes are losing when the battle comes to a screeching halt. Literally.

The lightning android had already absorbed most of Baymax’s power, leaving him in his stumbling drunken low battery mode. It had also hijacked the electromagnetic servos in both Gogo’s and Hiro’s suits leaving them tangled and awkwardly stuck together.

The fire android had made the Fredzilla suit’s fire-breathing abilities defunct, taking the three-eyed head and leaving Fred vulnerable. High heat also had the tendency to mess with Honey Lemon’s chemical concoctions, though she was beginning to adapt and send heat absorption capsules.

Which meant that the lightning one’s scream of pain was highly unexpected. Wasabi was a Big Hero in his own right, of course, but due to the lethality of molecular-sharp lasers, he tended not to fight directly. They all figured it would be okay–the androids had already proven highly resistant to most of the Big Heroes’ attacks, due to their shining metal outer shell–but apparently that was not the case.

Bright red liquid was gushing up from where Wasabi had cut into its… no, her arm. She had retreated a safe distance away, though Wasabi had already retracted the laser swords, clutching futilely to the bleeding wound. Her fire counterpart abandoned its… his own skirmish with a burst of speed even faster than his previously witnessed, almost impossible movements.

It was one of the reasons why the Big Heroes had thought they were androids this entire time. Along with their near impenetrable metal armor. And the fact that until now, neither of the not-androids had every said anything.

Not that gasps of pain and wordless, soothing crooning was particularly intelligible.

But the Big Heroes weren’t rookies anymore. While they didn’t use the opportunity to attack the distracted pair, they did take the moment of respite to lick their own wounds. Gogo and Hiro were carefully untangled from each other and Fred’s mask retrieved. They couldn’t do much about Baymax’s low battery mode, but they could at least stop him from flying away.

“I- I didn’t know!” Wasabi blurted out, looking down sickly at his hands. There wasn’t actually any blood on them, but still…

“None of us knew,” Gogo reassured him as best as she could.

“It wasn’t your fault,” Honey Lemon added, which did more.

“If they’re not androids, this totally throws off my theories!” Fred, or rather, Fredzilla’s arms waved about, only just missing the rest of the team huddled together, “Maybe they’re escaped experiments. Twin escaped experiments!”

“Uh, guys–” Wasabi tried to start.

“It doesn’t matter what they are, it matters what they did. Robots or not, they’ve been blowing up labs around the city,” Gogo gestured to the burning wreckage of the most recent attack.

“But never with people inside, it’s always been at night when no ones there, or right after some kind of evacuation,” Honey Lemon refuted, though she also looked discomfited by the scene. It hit too close to home.

The team did their best not to look too closely in Hiro’s direction, though they were waiting on his input.

“Gogo’s right. Regardless of their motivations or… consideration, they still need to be brought in. We can go on from their after we’ve caught them,” Hiro steeled himself, this whole case had been terrible from the beginning, but he was determined to see it through to the end.

“Guys, not to worry anyone, but the android twins whatever they are, are coming over,” Wasabi alerted the team, though he was still conflicted on how to go about fighting when he didn’t actually want to hurt other people.

With the silver-clad pair came the smell of burned meat.

“No way,” Fred breathed, beginning to look a little queasy himself. Gogo looked reluctantly impressed–they hadn’t heard a thing, no second scream of pain that’s for sure.

“Cauterizing a wound out in the open like this? That would actually increase risk for infection,” Honey Lemon murmured, fingers ghosting over the touch screen of her purse. Though she had excelled at organic chemistry as well, medicine wasn’t her specialty.

Both of them had stopped several feet away, hands loosely open in a blatant display of nonaggression.

“Truce?” The lightning one asked curtly, arm still shaking with pain.

The team looked at each other, briefly, with various levels of skepticism on their faces.

“What exactly do you want?” Hiro asked.

“Your robot, he’s programmed as a medic.” The fire one said, shocking the entire team for two reasons. Reason one–they knew that Baymax was a robot designed for healthcare. Baymax was a one-of-a-kind. Most people assumed the red flying hero was a human not a robot, much less a medical robot. That meant that the pair knew the identity of at least one member of the team.

“I’ll recharge him. I can give back what I took,” She added, not seeing the wide-eyed surprise on their faces. Or simply not caring.

“You make sure my cauterizing didn’t make her injury worse. We’ll surrender ourselves into your custody,” He continued, emphasizing ‘your’. Both of their armor molded to cover even their faces, but still…

Reason two– that was Tadashi’s voice.

A/N: Hahahaha, yeah. That damn movie… agh. My heart.

Anyway, this is a scene from an imaginary fic I will probably not write, regarding a maybe sequel in which Tadashi’s not dead? Maybe? I dunno.

I didn’t quite know how to add in drunken/low-battery Baymax shenanigans without completely derailing the scene. Though just imagine him stumbling around in the background while everyone’s all super serious.

And… yeah. Basically one part Sunfire, one part Winter Soldier, one part Maximoff twins (except they’re not really twins)… at least I’m sticking to Marvel, though right?

Although, yes, the lightning one is an OC of mine…
