Anonymous asked:
I was gonna be a smartaleck for that ask meme and ask for Jak's "most expensive clothes" But then my brain made me think that it was most likely something from Damos and what it cost Jak for him to get it and now I've made myself sad.

But what if Underground!Erol is still Erol? Erol is not a nice guy in canon, and not in the same jerk-with-a-heart-of-gold sense as Torn, either. Erol uses people. Erol is proud and vain and likes having power over others.

Imagine…

Also: what if the contrast between the progress Jak had managed to make and how much worse Cyber Torn makes it is what lets him see that he had been getting better? What if that gives him hope, paradoxical though it is?

AAAAAAA yes yes yes I mean

if he had all this self-talk about what a monster he is and that he’s only good for destruction, and then he’s faced with the possibility of LITERALLY BEING TURNED INTO THAT

Like the DWP was a imperfect science. It was arguably a shitfest. There was no guarantee that putting Jak back into the chair would actually result in what Praxis was hoping. I’m not sure Praxis KNEW what he was hoping for. 

But this? This is different. These are GODS who are able to create beings out of pure Dark Eco, they’re the ones who created the Metal Heads. If they got their hands on Jak, there’s very little doubt they would make him into whatever they wanted him to be and Torn? Torn would be giving Jak EXTREMELY GRAPHIC DETAILS about what they intend to do to him. 

Jak would be terrified, but he would also know this is not what he wants, full stopHe knows even the thing he turns into under the influence of the Dark doesn’t want this. He cannot let this happen to himself, he cannot. He will not. 

That has to give him some motivation. Once he works through the fear, he’d find that stubborn core to him that’s gotten him through literally everything up to this point and use that to keep going and in the opposite direction than the Dark Makers want. He’s been told since he ran into the VERY first Precursor Statue that you fight darkness with light. Once he found it him to say “fuck you” he would find it in him to become the thing that kills those motherfuckers, and does so by becoming the EXACT OPPOSITE of what they want to do to him.

And maybe that’s were the Precursors come into this? What Light Eco Jak is able to channel atm isn’t enough so he finds Veger and drills him for answers, finds the catacombs, finds the Precursors and demands…idk, more Light. Give him all the Light you have. IDK

Imagine Erol continuing to not…

Keira poking all of Jak’s buttons in the most painful way, making him keep moving for now but doing more and more damage that she has no idea how to repair.

Keira and Daxter not talking about the past or the future, but talking about the most trivial aspects of the present as if they actually mattered.

Talking to Keira is like coming up for air for Daxter, when everything else is pain and anger and despair that threatens to swallow him whole.

Both of them realizing they’re losing touch with the ideals they’re trying to hold to, and doing better for a while, only for this to happen again, and each time it gets a little harder to care.

Keira being thrilled to hear Daxter flirt with her, and Daxter being thrilled to hear Keira refuse him for all the same reasons as before.

Daxter and Keira grieving for Jak, and Jak picking up on that and deciding it’s just more evidence that the hero who stopped Gol and Maia is long dead.

Damas being matter-of-fact about PTSD, because every last one of his people has had at least one brush with death, and two or three out of every ten didn’t come out unscathed. No, better: all psychic scars being understood as injuries, no arbitrary line deciding who’s screwed up “enough” and no conception of it as a sign of weakness, but as a sign of strength, because hey, you have to have survived to be screwed over by your own memories, right? Dead men have no nightmares.

Damas telling Jak that.

Damas telling Jak that more than once.

(Jak wanting to have no nightmares.)

Keira making friends with the wastelanders who use her inventions, asking them for feedback, asking them what they dream of having and then building that.

The wastelanders laughing and joking with each other and then with Keira, too, and Keira getting to spend time with people who are happy with their lives.

(And they remind her so much of Jak, how he used to be.)

oh my god all of this is gorgeous

Damas pushing Jak to spend time with the monks when he realizes Jak isn’t coping. Seem teaching Jak how to meditate and to let go of his past enough to be in the present and consider a future. Jak using Light Eco as a form of medication and avoiding Dark Eco to keep the anger away. Small conversations happening between Jak, Keira and Daxter about no, how are you really? Jak getting reassurance that 

Cyber Torn undoing every inch of progress Jak has managed to make. Cyber Torn wanting to capture Jak and take him to the Dark Makers; the Dark Makers wanting to turn Jak into a weapon they can use against the whole of his world and more worlds after. 

Jak being terrified because he doesn’t want to be a weapon, he doesn’t want to exist to destroy, he hates hates hates feeling like destruction is all he wants, all he’s good for, he’s so good at it though and he does want it even when there’s no Dark Eco in his system, he wants to break things and he hates it, and when he’s full of Dark Eco it’s all he can think about and its so much harder not to just give in and destroy. The Dark Makers want to strip him of everything but the Dark and Jak is so scared. 

I fucking FIGURED OUT WHAT CYBER TORN IS GOOD FOR AND IT IS TERRIBLE AND DELICIOUS

But what if Underground!Erol is still Erol? Erol is not a nice guy in canon, and not in the same jerk-with-a-heart-of-gold sense as Torn, either. Erol uses people. Erol is proud and vain and likes having power over others.

Imagine Erol continuing to not give a fuck. Imagine…

So maybe Keira can’t fix the boys, any of them, and just has to be the one who remembers what hope is, who remembers that the world can be better than this even though it’s not. Maybe Keira is desperate and despairing but when she sees how hopeless Jak is and when she finally realizes that Erol’s not necessarily in it for the greater good, either, she takes all that energy and determination that was once aimed at going home and aims it at making this place worth living in. Because somebody has to remember that they’re fighting for a reason.

And doing this probably almost breaks her, because she’s just not equipped to be the hope and the heart for an entire world. No one is. And she manages to keep Jak moving, manages to get him to remember that there’s such a thing as a life worth living, but she doesn’t manage to rekindle his own determination. So he keeps going out of a sense of duty, and looks forward to everything being over, not to starting a new life. I wonder what that does to his tendency to take extreme risks. It probably makes it even worse.

And poor Keira probably moves to Spargus and… poor girl needs some friends. Maybe she meets some there, and maybe they’re not as morose and hopeless as u!e!Jak and Daxter.

Ooh! Or maybe she and Daxter really bond, because neither is quite as hopeless as Jak and both still care about saving the world. Daxter&Keira!

DAXTER AND KEIRA! Getting through another day through snarking and full force of will. Daxter and Keira being extremely grateful that at some point post-Praxis, there’s less danger for Jak throw himself at. Keira not liking the fact Jak is obviously doing shit out of a sense of obligation, but playing into it anyways because she has no idea what else to do. Keira reaching breaking points and just ripping into Jak out of frustration, yelling at him about how he’s given up and its so DRAINING Trying to make sure he gets through another day and how selfish he’s being by acting like this. Jak not saying a fucking thing but that’s so much worse and he fucks off and refuses to see Keira for weeks until she has to corner him while he’s picking up an assignment at the Freedom League just to get a chance to apologize. (Jak not wanting to help the FLG at all, but doing so because its the only source of danger + achievement he can find once Praxis dies) 

God though you said ‘making this place worth living’ and my mind IMMEDIATELY jumped at thought ‘maybe this is how I get her with Ashelin’. Because no seriously that’s Ashe’s goal too.  Ashelin isn’t a good person, but she’s more respectable than Erol and she does want to make Haven a better place. Especially after losing Torn. Keira would probably be really surprised at realizing she can actually see eye-to-eye with Ashelin of all people but she would. And once Ashelin realizes she has an in, she’d do all she can to win Keira over to her side. She’d find the right way to spin things to her, she’d play confidant to gain Keira’s trust, she’d figure out how to rile Keira up and point her in the right direction to fix a problem. Ashelin only knows how to interact with people by using them, regardless of her actual feelings for them, so I’m not saying she wouldn’t actually like Keira. I REALLY think she’d like Keira. Keira is a good person, like Torn was, she’s extremely capable and she’s super fucking attractive. 

I really want Ashelin and Keira to get together, okay, this could totally work. Its probably the only way Keira makes it through the time between Kor’s defeat and finding out about Spargus.

Imagine Erol continuing to not give a fuck. Imagine Jak and Daxter working for the Underground for revenge, and not finding respect, not finding a nest of cynical but idealistic good guys who show them just by continuing to fight that just because the world sucks doesn’t mean you have to give up. Imagine Jak never getting to let his guard down at all. Imagine Jak, instead of remembering how to care about what’s right and becoming a hero again, just fighting and fighting and fighting, pouring out all his rage but finding nothing to replace it, just getting more and more tired of everything.

goood yes such good points. 

I’m trying to figure out how Keira fits into all of this and if that has any effect on Jak finding some hope? Since her relationship with Erol brings her closer to the Underground. I don’t think it’d be a lot, if she does. Erol brings out the worst in people, Keira included, and during Jak II all Keira wants to do is fucking bail on Haven. So hard. The only reason she wouldn’t once they find the rift gate is because Samos probably wouldn’t let her. The rift rider has to be used to send young Samos and little Mar back to Sandover and little Mar disappeared in the shuffle, putting the operation on hold. 

And Keira honestly isn’t good at ‘reaching’ Jak. She’s not good at saying the right thing and Daxter isn’t good at talking Jak out of a fight. Jak would be shit out of luck until he got to Spargus. Only then would he start on actually healing from the DWP. Damas would have his work cut out for him, though I wonder if having little Mar around would help or hinder it? Seeing the kid happy may motivate Jak towards pursuing his own happiness in the sense of finding hope, ooor he could be resentful of not having the kid’s luck for himself. Idk I’m not doing a very good job explaining this train of thought, but I think Jak would fluctuate between liking being around Damas and the kid and not being able to deal with it. Light Eco could help that. Damas finding out who Jak is would help a lot

I actually really like the idea of Jak not emotionally healing until the ‘third game’. In Jak 2 they totally gloss over a lot of the trauma he goes through- I mean he’s out of prison for ten minutes before he starts running missions and being thrown into situations he really shouldn’t have been equipped to handle.

Having the father figure of Damas, not to mention the fact he’d be less judged in Spargus in a lot of ways would really do him good. Not to mention there would be less reminders everywhere of all the pain he went through- no Baron statues, no KG’s or Freedom Guards, no scared citizens running away from him, etc.

And I agree with the above statements, Erol is not a good guy. I think under the right circumstances he COULD do good, buuut… 

(I’d kinda like it if Keira actually helped tone Erol down a little- this could cause more friction between her and Jak, because it would seem like she understood Erol better than she did him. Not that she’d really have time for ANY of the boy’s crap, she has work to do.)

Haven would be a really terrible place for Jak. It’d never really get better, especially since Sig’s not there. Would Sig still be a mentor figure for Jak in this? Seriously, their relationship is the only positive one Jak gets in the second game. Would that still happen? Would Jak notice that Sig never came back when things all went to hell? Would it change his reaction when he finds out it was cuz Sig nabbed little Mar and took him home? 

Keira and the Shadow are probably the only reason Erol is bearable and isn’t getting away with too much bullshit. Erol wouldn’t have his position to woo Keira with in this; he’d probably be the guy who had to bribe her so she didn’t rat him out to the KG the first time she caught him breaking into the Stadium. I think that would make their relationship a little more honest. She’d know Erol isn’t a good person, but she’d agree that something should be done about the Baron and help how she can. She’d actually be in a position of power over Erol, since at any time she could turn on the Underground and rat their asses out. Erol could kill her (and probably considered it), but she’s worth so much more to him alive, considering she lends him her zoomers and can get the Underground equipment and maintain it for them if shit goes wrong. She’s a great source of information since she’s one of the few upper class Underground sympathizers and has even won access to the Palace in the past year. Erol would have to trust Keira, in turn giving Keira plenty of leverage to tell him to shut the fuck up when he’s being a shit

pinkdisney asked:
I was catching up on the Underground!Erol AU tag, and omg the idea of KG!Torn being a corrupted AI is scary to me. I keep thinking of him glitching out in that creepy way when his previous programming (whatever's left) conflicts or is overridden by the Dark Makers tampering. Ugh, I just love the "ghost in the machine" concept. Oh and poor Jak! Just imagine having to face this guy you're still terrified of and he can actually be ANYWHERE. Just Torn coolly being snide to them on a big screen.

Torn being in several KG bots at once, surrounding Jak, Torn’s voice coming from all sides

seriously the only way Jak could get through this would be with the help of Light Eco holy shit how triggering

reaversface:

[CUT FOR LENGTH]

Oh man, maybe Keira tags along with Erol? Because she knows her boys and how they interact and YEAH they need Jak to actually want to come back if Haven isn’t going to go completely 100% to shit

(although it’s admittedly debatable whether Keira would care, so maybe it’s more for Jak’s sake than Haven’s sake, and to restrain Erol)

and she just kinda PUSHES them apart SIMMER DOWN BOYS Jak don’t kill him, Erol stop being such an asshole, nobody is killing anyone or ruining anybody’s life okay?

also Keira’s relationship with Samos would be pretty important at this point because she’ll also see the kid and make the connection, and Samos is probably still wanting the kid back because TIMELINE but Keira doesn’t want to put Jak through all that shit again

honestly I think Keira’s relationship with her dad is really strained at this point. Like, she’d know by now who the kid is and why he’s important—that’s end of Jak II shit—but I don’t see Samos giving anyone a straight answer on whether or not he knew shit was gonna happen to Jak and just didn’t warn him. He’d just keep harping about sending his younger self back with the boy for the sake of the timestream 

And Keira, Jak and Daxter are just the most unsure and up until this point? Were probably kinda relieved that the kid up and vanished during the chaos of the end of Jak II. The crew in Haven wouldn’t even know that the kid was in Spargus until Keira and Erol broke in. Jak and Dax wouldn’t’ve told them. The kid is with his father! This is way better than being sent back in time only to jump forward again and go through heaps and heaps of bullshit mid-puberty. 

I think that before Jak and Dax got to Spargus, they were on the fence about the timestream. Once they’re in Spargus and occasionally babysit little Mar, they are both FIRMLY AGAINST separating him and Damas. Erol wouldn’t care and Keira would be leaning towards letting the kid be happy, especially if she spends more time in Spargus and hangs with Damas some. 

…Keira should explain the time shit to Damas. She should explain who Jak is. Not in front of Jak, but when she’s alone with the King. She’d explain creating the riftrider, about missing her original time but realizing she can’t go back, she can’t take her friends back, that it’s only purpose now is to maybe take her father’s younger self and Damas’ child into the past so that everything that’s happened can happen again. 

I REALLY like the idea of Keira having a heart-to-heart with Damas. Of Keira earning that heart-to-heart because she’s awesome and has so much to offer Damas and Spargus. I like Keira being invested in Spargus for Jak and Mar’s sake and in Haven for her father’s, Erol, Tess and maybe even a teensy bit of Ashelin’s sake and being honest with someone as awesome as Damas about how conflicted she is. I REALLY REALLY like the idea of Keira convincing Damas to fight with Haven, and Jak following Damas back to Haven, because lets be honest, Erol was not gonna be able to convince him of jack shit

reaversface:

I just can’t get the image out of my head of Erol going off to drag Jak back to Haven and being too impatient to get him on his own so he just kinda storms in while Jak is on a mission with Damas and a few other Wastelanders

And totally blanks everyone except Jak and Damas is like UH EXCUSE ME WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?

Erol just being all SOMEONE WHO’S MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOU’LL EVER BE NOW SERIOUSLY ECO FREAK GET ON THE FUCKING ZOOMER

Daxter kind of loses his shit at that point and Jak is just like uhhh no? because even though being around Damas kills him, Spargus is way better than Haven and once Damas gets over his initial leeriness of Jak’s powers they start getting along pretty well, especially since Damas realises Jak is WEIRDLY GOOD WITH HIS KID, so Jak is pretty set

Erol, otoh, wants to know who the hell this spiky-headed bozo is and what hold he has over Erol’s best soldier (not that he’d ever actually put it into those words)

oh my god Erol fucking sneaking his way into Spargus and then pulling this shit

Jak and Daxter having to speak up to keep Erol from being killed on the spot for insulting Damas and doing so VERY RELUCTANTLY

Jak having a TALK with Erol in the wings about not saying a fucking thing about time travel and younger selves to Damas and just shut the fuck Erol don’t ruin this for him okay he has a life now and you can’t fuck it up just because it doesn’t include you and your shitstain of a city

Erol being an ASSHOLE, LIKE FINE, IF RUINING YOUR LIFE HERE WILL GET YOU BACK OVER IN HAVEN, YEAH. I’MA RUIN YOUR LIFE. Jak being like ALL THAT’LL DO IS ADD ME TO YOUR LIST OF ENEMIES

DO YOU REALLY WANT TO DO THAT EROL

DO YOU REALLY WANT TO GIVE ME REASON TO WANT AND KILL YOU FOR REALS

and oh my god some other party would need to step in and try and sort this out before there is life-ruining and bloodshed and Erol possibly resorting to kidnapping the kid all over again
