Downside!Will's backstory is an epic work-in-progress called "Shot In the Dark," which is probably only funny to me. >.> Part one is here
; part two, still in progress, is here
For the purposes of tinygame, a couple things should be known.
1. Although SitD technically takes place after Will and Eight-Hour met in mixed_muses
!Milliways, it works better for tinygame if they met while Eights was on vacation in one of the seventy-three connecting liveling worlds. They talked; Eights told him some things she technically shouldn't have; Will kept it to himself. Nothing else pre-fic needs to change.
2. The beginning of the fic takes place 6-8 months before tinygame's current time. What's been written so far only covers that first month-and-a-bit. So here's a preview of what's coming/been happening!
Over the next couple months, Chainsaw and Jasmine continued to kidnap Will every couple weeks and torture (and/or fuck, in Chainsaw's case) the shit out of him, partly because Will is a fun victim, but mostly because it seriously fucked with Eight-Hour's head. It didn't take him long to pick up on the ulterior motive -- at which point he told Eights to stop rescuing him and distance herself from him. Taking care of him showed Chainsaw and Jazz that Will is a weak spot, and reacting to them poking it gave them what they wanted.
Eights was none too happy about Will's suggestion that they avoid each other, and made it known. Loudly. A lot.
Eventually, though, Will talked her into it (most likely simply by saying that he was going to refuse to associate with her whether she liked it or not). The two avoid each other for the next four or five months. Will more or less drops out of sight for a while. Jasmine loses interest when Eights stops reacting and moves on, confident that she can always pick Will up again if she really wants a good session; Chainsaw's sessions also taper off slightly, although he enjoys torturing Will for his own merits a little more than Jasmine did, and therefore doesn't give up entirely.
So things stand when Will makes his first post to tinygame. :D
Events of tinygame may or may not affect the course of SitD, but they'll almost certainly inspire sections of it one way or another!
