A/N: Ok, I know I shouldn't be starting another story so soon, but I had a random head cannon last night and I wanted to write it as soon as possible. This will be a Jack x Bunnymund story since I happen to love that pairing as well. There will be no smut, just a love story between a giant rabbit and a dead kid with white hair. ^_^
I will be continuing BlackIce Oneshots, don't worry!
Also, Pitch isn't a bad guy in this. In all my stories he's either Jack's friend or boyfriend, ok? Yes, I know it was him who killed all of the Pooka's, but I'm going to work around it for this story. I have no clue how, but I will!
This is written from Jack's POV. Please review and fave. I love getting those emails!
Waking Up In Another World
The last thing I remembered was falling asleep on North's couch in the living room of his toy factory. It had been really late, and the other Guardians and I had been extremely exhausted from helping North prepare for Christmas, which was only a month away now. He had called us here to ask for a bit of help, and naturally we agreed. Even Guardians needed some help every now and then. I had spent most of the day wrapping presents in different sized boxes, and my hands were extremely tired from the work. I decided to go to bed in the living room, since that was my favorite room in the house. There were large windows that the couch faced so I could watch the moon rise in the night sky as I fell asleep.
I awoke the next morning to long rays of bright sunlight leaking in through those same windows and hitting my closed eyelids. I wasn't sure what time it was, but it seemed fairly early. It was bad judgment to not realize that the sun would wake me up early in the morning, but at the time I had been too tired to care. I stretched my arms out and squeezed my eyes shut. My limbs ached from the awkward position I had slept in the night before, and I was thankful to finally stretch now. The blue orbs that were my eyes opened and blinked a few times, brushing away the sleepiness. That was when I saw myself for the first time since the previous night. Where my hands should've been were large, white paws with short claws at the end of each tip. I screamed in surprise and jumped off the couch. At first, I thought it was a dream. However, I quickly realized with wasn't a dream after I collapsed on the floor and still didn't wake up. I glanced down, only to find my pants completely gone. My legs were covered in soft, snow white fur, with even larger paws for feet.
Another scream from me. What the hell had happened? Why was I covered in fur? Too many questions were racing through my mind, and I had no answers to any of them. I got up, falling down a few times due to the fact I wasn't used to walking on paws, and grabbed my staff by the couch for support. Very steadily and slowly, I managed to walk out of the living room and into a hallway bathroom close by. I closed the door and locked it, not wanting to be seen by any of the other Guardians.
I leaned against the door, panting in shock as I looked at myself on the mirror on the wall. My normal blue hoodie was still on, thank MIM. However, my normal, adorable face was covered in the thick white fur that also covered the rest of my body now. Two long ears sprouted out of the top of my head and added about a foot and a half to my normal height. I placed both paws on my face and ran them through the soft fur.
"What happened to me!" I groaned as I slammed my head back against the door. I immediately regretted doing so as I remembered that Tooth was sleeping in a room at the end of the hall. The last thing I wanted to do was wake her up and to have her see me like… like this, all covered in fur and with ears way to big for my head.
I paced around the small room, trying to decide what to do. I couldn't leave the pole, not while I was like this. There was no way I could fly with all of the extra weight the fur added. Walking out of this room was an option, but what would the other Guardians say? Especially Bunnymund. That kangaroo was always grumpy with me, and I doubt he'd be sympathetic in my case. But maybe Tooth or North would help…
My mind was made up for me a few seconds later when the worst thing that could've happened, happened. There was a loud knock at the bathroom door, and an Australian accent followed.
"Oi! Frostbite, you in there? The rest of us are up and wonderein where you are?" He yelled loudly through the door. My eyes widened in horror; what if he saw me like this? He knocked again, this time with more force.
"Y-Yeah Bunny! I'm in here. I'll be out in a sec, ok?" I stuttered.
"Alright! Just hurry, wouldn't want to miss breakfast would ya?" Bunnymund replied. I listened closely for the sound of his feet as he walked away. Once it was clear, I unlocked and slightly cracked the door. I did a double take just to make sure no one was around before I fully opened it and stepped out. No one saw.
I walked through the hallway and towards the kitchen, stopping at the end of where the wall ended. The wall separated the hallway and the kitchen, so I knew I had to be extra careful not to make any noise. I peered around the edge and into the kitchen. Luckily, all of the other Guardians had their backs turned away from me. I tried not to laugh at how ridiculous North looked in a giant chefs hat.
Setting that thought aside, I looked around and quickly spotted Tooth. She was sitting at the table on the end closest to me. I would have to be stealthy if I wanted to get her attention, and in my current state, that wasn't going to be as easy as it sounded.
"Psst! Tooth!" I whisper-yelled, trying not to alert any other Guardians. I saw Tooth's head flicker for a second as if she'd heard something. I gave it another try.
"Tooth! Over here!"
She turned around all the way now, staring in my direction. Her eyes widened as she instantly recognized me. Before she could cry out though, I made a motion with my hand across my throat and vigorously shook my head. Thankfully, she stopped before she could say anything. Instead, she turned around and announced,
"I'll be right back!" To the rest of the Guardians. She scooted away from the table and fluttered into the air and over to me. No words were spoken as she led my down the hallway and back into the bathroom. When we were both inside, I locked the door for the second time that morning.
"Jack! What happened!" She cried to me as her wings suspended her in the air like a helicopter. I shrugged and let my long ears drop.
"I've been asking the same question Tooth! I just woke up this way this morning!" I told her. Her violet eyes starred deep into mine, trying to think of any possible explanation. They seemed empty, just like my head.
"I don't have a clue as to what could have caused this Jack," She said finally,
"Although I do know one thing."
I looked up at her, still hovering in the air, her wings making a faint humming sound.
"You look exactly like a Pooka, Jack."
"Wait, wait. Isn't that what Bunnymund is? And aren't they like extinct or something?" I asked, confusion evident in my now furry features. Tooth's face darkened and she immediately became sad.
"Yes Jack, they are. Pitch was the one who did it. A long, long time ago. Back when he had full control of his nightmares." Tooth explained sadly.
"But, Pitch is good now!" I protested. Whether or not the Guardians liked it, Pitch was a close friend of mine now.
"I know Jack. But he wasn't always like that." She countered. I gave up at that point; there was no point in arguing with her.
"He was the only one who survived Jack. Not being able to save any of his race haunts him every single day of his immortal life." Tooth continued.
"Will he be mad if he sees me?" I asked. Contrary to what most think, I actually like Bunny. He's a great friend and listener, even if he is a bit grumpy with me sometimes.
Tooth's face lit up with excitement when I said those words.
"Oh on the contrary Jack. I think he'll be excited to have a new furry friend, even if it is only until we figure out how to change you back." She informed me with a sweet smile. I smiled back and nodded.
"Now, what's say we go make a little announcement to the other Guardians about your current situation?"
Crappy place to end it, I know. Sorry if this is a little un-detailed. I'm a really straight forward writer so it's kinda hard for me to include detail all the time. I apologize but hopefully you guys enjoyed it! I promise I'll update soon! Until then!
