Author has written 3 stories for Animaniacs.
Hi. I'm Mari, I'm 18 and I like cartoons. I've been writing animaniacs stories for so long I don't know how to write anything else (im kidding but yeah im probably only going to post animaniacs stories).
Okay, going to clear some things out of the way first; Everyone's Wish is probably never going to be continued (because it didn't really have an established plot), and Rose Dyed Blood Red is discontinued for now (I moved it to the idea vault if I ever wanted to work on it again but it probably won't be in the near future). I'm working on one main story called Heart of the Mind, which I'll soon be uploading here, on tumblr, and on ao3. It presently has 31 chapters, with many more to come.
Let me stress this: Heart of the Mind is going to be finished. No being discontinued, no "I don't have a plot for this". This is a story I've been working on for 6 years, and writing for at least 2. I have most of it planned out, maybe a few things I write as I go along.
That said, Heart of the Mind is a story about Yakko (of course) and 2 ocs called Leo and Rose. None of the other animaniacs characters are here, and Wakko and Dot (though they have their own problems and play a role of emotional support for Yakko) are secondary characters. I haven't decided yet if there is going to be actual romance in this or if I'll leave it as subtext (I guess I'll eventually ask you guys what you prefer).
I have many other animaniacs stories in the works, but for now, the only one I know I'm never going to abandon is this one. I'm going to see it through to the end dang it, which is why I won't give you a summary of this one.
I'll leave a small summary of other stories I'm working on and if any interests you you can message me and say "hey this is pretty cool i wanna read this" and I'll probably make it my second priority:
* A Feeling Nobody Should Know
Definitely the only story I'll write with controversial topics because wow it's difficult for my stomach. It's not supposed to be okay. I initially wrote this idea thinking "how unpleasant can I get?" and it morphed into this.
Anyway, Wakko and Yakko are the protagonists in this one (Dot is supposed to appear later on). They come from a poor, really poor family, their mother has just died and their father is a bastard who sells them for a bunch of coins, and when I mean sell them I mean their new "home" is a brothel. At this point, Yakko is thirteen and Wakko is eight. Yeah, now you get what I mean by unpleasant. Okay so, the gist of it is that one would have to pry Wakko from Yakko's cold dead hands before Yakko would let anyone so much as touch a hair from his little bro's head, so he strikes a deal with the boss that if he does double the work, Wakko won't even appear in the equation. So up until they're eighteen and thirteen respectively, Wakko had no clue as to what was actually going on and literally thought Yakko was the errand boy or something. He finds out, shit hits the fan and their relationship is strained a little. Wakko also becomes extremely worried for his brother (Yakko has gained a serious case of the "You're clean and I'm dirty" mentality) and also, having been forced to see his brother in this new light, a new problem comes around.
Okay, are you ready for the second unpleasant part of this? No? Sorry, too late, I'm telling you: Wakko gets a crush. Yes, he's crushing on Yakko. BUT! That's not really the unpleasant part, the unpleasant part is that Yakko tries to tell Wakko this is Never Going To Work and Wakko tries to get the Hell Over It, but it just won't go away, and it comes to the point that it's stressing Wakko the hell out. And, well, Yakko doesn't want that. So, he knows it's not right, and he doesn't really think this is a good idea, and he doesn't want this, but he'll do anything to keep his brother safe and happy. Anything (don't worry tho it doesn't get any further than kisses, "I'm dirty" Yakko would never permit anything more and neither would I because NO).
Oh, and Jack the Ripper is in there somewhere. If you can already see where I'm going with that I applaud you.
Basically vampire fic. Yakko and my two main ocs are the protagonists. Yakko is a half-blood vampire, but he's also the heir to the Warner throne, and their kingdom is at cold war with the vampires. You can see why this situation would be difficult. Anyway, oc number 1 Leo is the heir to the Vampire throne (and his mother the queen wants to assimilate Yakko's country into theirs by marrying Leo and Yakko- whether they end up in love or just as really good friends is yet to be decided), and oc number 2 Rose is Yakko's amnesiac maid who is also his best friend.
Yakko's father is a bastard (again and this is a trend) who knew about Yakko being a half-blood but put up with it because just letting the people know they'd been living with a vampire prince wasn't the best of ideas. He hates Yakko because the poor kid indirectly caused his own mother's death. Anyway, at one point the king finds out that vampires have been sneaking around his castle (Leo got curious and went to visit Yakko, eventually ending in them becoming friends) and, figuring it must be Yakko's fault one way or another, is capital d Done with him and tries to have him staked through the heart. Leo does not take kindly to someone threatening his friend (and possible husband) and flies in with a group to take Yakko (and to his request his siblings and Rose as well) to the Vampire kingdom where they would be somewhat safer. Keyword being somewhat because there are vampires trying to suck their blood. Not that Leo would let them.
At this point the cold war is over and they have a full on war with death and everything.
* Gravity Falls Au (don't have a name for this one yet)
So the protagonists should be Wakko and Dot since they're Dipper and Mabel, buuuuuuuut... well, the real story is about Yakko (Stan), oc Elias (Stanford), and oc Leo (Bill). I'm a little split on how I'm going to be tackling this one though. While the general story is still present, there are three things that change the whole thing: 1) Bill is not as much of a jerk (I couldn't make him an irredeemable jerk I love my baby Leo too much), 2) Bill and Stan used to be best pals. And I mean actual pals, not like Bill was with StanFord in the series (because I also can't write my baby Leo being mean to Yakko), and 3) Stan and Stanford didn't part on bad terms (actually it's the opposite).
So, the thing I'm split on is how much of a jerk Leo is going to be. I can either make him be like "im a bit of a jerk because ive been traumatized to high hells im so sorry i don't want to do this but you're the only thing i have left" or "im an actual jerk and ive made bad choices but i really care about you and can be redeemed if you give me the opportunity". Weirdmageddon is going to happen, and there will be a happy ending, either way.
(The "im a bit of a jerk" Leo is actually Heart of The Mind Leo who has Seen Some Shit)
* Mundane Highschool story (I might name this "That Bastard Who Never Comes To Practice")
Romance is mandatory here, I'm sorry I don't make the rules. This is a "rivals to friends to lovers" story, because I've always wanted to write one of those, and because it gives me an excuse to write Yakko closer to his actual canonical personality instead of "im freaking paranoid all the time and im papa bear for my sibs" Yakko I always end up writing (tho I love him). Anyway, Yakko and my oc Leo are going to date and I'm going to love it. If you are going to love it too then I welcome you into my trash boyxboy arms.
So, the story is (and yes there is a story) that Yakko and Leo are in a volleyball team. Neither of them really know the other exists, Yakko only knows Leo as "that bastard who never comes to practice" (hence the possible name of the fic), and Leo only knows Yakko as "that nerd overachiever who tries to shine every game". Leo is the "tough guy" who everyone spreads rumors about, saying he's in a gang or selling drugs and who all the girls flock to, when in reality he's a gay teddy bear who would never hurt a fly. Meanwhile Yakko is the "self confident" guy who is a total nerd but is somehow popular because he's snarky with strict authority and a sweetheart to everyone else.
Anyway, Yakko is mad at Leo because, as previously stated, he never comes to volleyball practice and yet is going to become the captain of the team (because he's just that good). Because of this, the coach appoints Yakko (who is the second best player) as Leo's "calendar", meaning he would have to go to Leo's house every time there was practice and make damn sure that Leo went with him. As you can imagine, neither is very thrilled with this, but they have to go through with it anyway. They don't have a very good relationship as a result of Yakko doing his job well and Leo being "lazy" and this leads to problems inside the court. They can't work as a team, because of them their team loses an important game, and Yakko declares Leo his arch enemy (he's petty okay he really likes volleyball) but is pleased to find that Leo quits the team after that. At least he doesn't have to deal with him anymore, right? Wrong. Leo is in most of his classes. Yakko gets revenge by playing stupid pranks on poor unsuspecting Leo (they're really harmless like changing his phone's language to chinese).
Leo eventually decides to confront Yakko about the pranks (I mean it was obvious it was him), but it's pizza friday and because of their talking they're late to lunch, meaning there's only a single slice left. Like the pair of highschool idiots they are, they fight for the slice, it falls to the floor, and Leo declares Yakko his arch enemy (he's petty okay he really likes pizza). As time goes on and they are constantly forced together (on one occasion they are paired up for a camping trip and on another both of their dates ditch them and they end up having to go to the school dance together because their friends wouldn't answer their damn phones) they start not hating each other, then liking each other, and after learning about each other enough, end up falling in love
