Watchmen II: Restoration
...And here I promised myself I wouldn't get addicted to any new series. Apparently, I can't even do that. *sigh* So, here's another plot-bunny gone horribly wrong. Enjoy, guys. (I blame Kelly!!!)
Based off both the comic and the 2009 movie. I suggest being familiar with both before continuing. I've taken snippets from both to make this story work.
Yes, this is a "Fix-It" fic, where Rorschach does not die in Antarctica. Yes, the main cast is made up of OCs-some children even. But I have a plan for dear Rorschy and these kids that, hopefully, extends far beyond the reaches of mary-sues and OOC nonsense. Hopefully. (I blame it entirely on Dr. Manhattan.)
Warnings: AU storyline, Rorschach lives, city kids get spandex and Veidt's perfect world isn't perfect. Lots of violence, foul language (racial slurs!) and twisted psyches. Ugly poodles, too.
Disclaimer: I do not own any of the original Watchmen characters, plot or ideas; they belong to DC Comics. Any unfamiliar terms, plot or characters do belong to me for the purpose of this fan fiction. Suck it, lawyers.

A voice torn raw by cold and force. So full of anger-loss-pain-
Necessary. Know it is.
But why does it hurt?
Hear footsteps approach. Why bother?
Know its too late.
Eyes meeting eyes-last chances-hearts attempting to reconcile-
Suddenly, blue. Blue like the sky, the ocean-
Don't have to say it again.
Don't feel a thing.
Sent spiraling, spiraling
What an empty, empty light.
For some reason, every so often, Audrey would wake up crying.
Annnnd that's all for the trippywtfness. Stupid site ruined my spacing, sorry. This was supposed to be more dramatic.
Onto the real chapter. See you there.
