Community AU → Annie Edison as a runaway mental patient
Never once in two years acknowledged that she’s in an institution. She’s created an elaborate fictional structure. She gives us all parts to play in that fiction. What’s more disturbing is we don’t know how she got out of her room. It was locked from the outside and the only window’s barred. It’s as if she evaporated straight through the walls.

Amelia Pond. Like a name in a fairytale.
You can’t just drop me off at my house and say goodbye like we shared a cab. / And what’s the alternative? Me standing over your grave?
"How long are you gonna stay with me?" “Forever.”
One of my favorite fairy tale figures is Baba Yaga, an old witch who lives in an enchanted forest, rides a mortar instead of a broom, lives in a house with chicken legs and usually has three magical sons. I have an obsession with witches in general, but something about this old Russian spell caster really captures my imagination.
I think one day i’d like to write about the adventures of her youth. How she became powerful and delightfully evil (although she is good in a couple of tales). So, here you go, young Baba Yaga (who would have a different name, since Baba means old woman. Maybe just Yaga?).
"And just what the hell am I supposed to do with these?"
"I requested minions of darkness, and you gave my fluffy jellybeans."
