Not me considering a Scott in Wonderland au
....well more like a "Scott in a part of subspace that resembles Wonderland" au
Literally here listening to "My Alcoholic Friends" on repeat and thinking of Wallace angst mmmmmmmmmm
if you wanna infodump everything i'm all ears
Okay so. *clap* Stand up so you can sit down, cuz I'm just getting started, bitch.
In Scott Pilgrim, I found it so interesting that basically each character has their own struggles and hardship going on in their lives, but is subtly referenced at and shoved in the background.
Such as Stephen's anxiety and toxic relationship, Kim with her self image and how she was cheated on, Neil having separation anxiety and struggling with identity- the list really goes on. And I often wondered what Wallace's was.
I feel like for Wallace, it would probably be him having a drinking problem, but casually covering it up with a charismatic and free attitude. Legit.
- Having celebratory pre-drinks before he goes put with his friends, but drinking way too much and straight-up passing out before he even left the house.
- "What time did you start drinking today, Wallace? Like, noon??" "You're a funny lady, Stacey Pilgrim."
- Showing up to any gathering, him already having drinks in hand as a first thought.
Or just in general (can you tell I feel like I'm talking too much?)
- just his whole identity and image in the book revolving around his drinking, "the drunk homosexual" and all.
But yeah, I ended up finding that one song "My Alcoholic Friends" and all I could say was;
"This sounds like if you took Wallacecore, and made it 400× more edgy."
Especially the verses after the instrumental.
"I'm trying hard
Not to be ashamed
Not to know the name
Of who is waking up beside me
Or the date, the season or the city
But at least the ceilings very pretty
And if you are holding it against me
I'll be on my best behavior
Taking shots for mother nature
Once my fist is in the cupboard
Love is never falling over"
"My only natural talents wasted
On my alcoholic friends ×2
The party never ends
My alcoholic friends"
Just overall viewing the world of this lifestyle in a dreary state, but struggling to keep it lighthearted.
Idk just some thoughts I was having last night please take with a grain of salt.
EDIT: I CANT BELIEVE I DIDN'T MENTION EARTH27!!!
There was this SP collab thing that happened and it offered more insight on so many characters! This is straight from Wallace's:
"After school, Wallace landed a job which allowed him to afford low-key lodging and all the booze Wallace could want to keep a constant buzz."
So how would you have interpreted Stephen's confession to Joseph in Scott Pilgrim? It got left out in the books and I've been dying to see somebody's interpretation :)
So I can’t Honestly think of a actual story idea but I do have some head canon ideas, sorry if you were looking forward to a actual full story :(
~Random stuff now~
I’m sorry if this isn’t what you were looking for but I had fun writing it! :)
NO NO BESTIE THIS IS BETTER THAN I EXPECTED WAAAAHHHH OMG
