Sun was dreading this visit.
He dragged his feet behind Miss Abby, who shot him a dirty glance. ‘Behave’. He nodded, trying to pick some speed… But he didn’t want to be here.
She rang the doorbell, almost immediately that man opened and invited them in. They friendly hugged, talking loudly and cheerfully to each other… And the man’s eyes were on him. He held his breath, keeping his head down, the posture perfect, like a good pet. Miss Abby was scary, this man was scarier.
“Sun, why don’t you go over there” he pointed at a room, his filming studio “Blue is waiting there, go talk to him while me and your owner chat, will you?”
He nodded and obeyed. No matter how much he didn’t want to see Blue again. When he looked at the other pet was he could think was… What If? Abby won’t do this to you, she won’t. She won’t right? She wants a perfect pet, a perfect pet has no ugly scars, a perfect pet has teeth and fingers, a perfect pet doesn’t stutter cry or beg. She won’t do this, she won’t, she won’t…
He got inside the studio. It was quite different than Abby’s setup, much more oriented towards gaming. He knew the man had another one on the basement, for more dark purposes. Blue was sitting on one of its Master’s chairs, spinning around. It nearly screamed when it saw Sunflower, but clamped their mouth to silence it, falling on its knees.
…Sun kneeled in front of Blue, while they tried to calm their heart. He could imagine how terrifying must be to nearly get caught doing something so bad, using Master’s furniture… Especially when that man was its Master.
“…I won’t tell” Sun said, barely avoiding a small smile. Seeing it spinning there was… Kind of cute if it wasn’t for the enormous amount of pressure over them right now.
“T-t-t-thank you…” Blue whispered, picking up its plush “It, it, it t-thinks he will, w-will find out a-anyway…”
“Why… do you do it then? Won’t he hurt you?”
The way Blue moves unnerves him a bit, the other pet rocking itself back and forth, plush in hands.
“M-m-makes B-blue a little happy”
“Happy” Sun whispered back. Was that really enough for Blue to feel happy? Hell, how long had it been since he felt any happiness? He looked down, at its own hands, all covered in little wounds, aching at the joints “Hm… You know what they’ll do today?”
…That little smile Blue had was gone now. It shook its head, pulling the bunny in front of its face, talking as if it was the toy speaking instead.
“N-no B-but it’s upstairs so, m-might not h-h-urt much…”
Might not hurt much. Sun kept trying to wrap his mind around what type of video would need two pets… And no pain.
“Miss Abby sometimes likes to do fashion tips and hair styling videos… Could be that?” Sun said more to himself than to Blue.
“Hm… W-w-we h-haven’t done much a-about it b-but, Master l-likes to pick d-different c-clothes for Blue” it puts the bunny down on its lap, head tilting a bit “It h-hopes is, is, is not a d-dress”
“Might not even be that… I’m just… trying to think” …think of the least scary options, that was.
“M-m-master l-likes v-v-ideo g-gaming…”
…Gaming. Sun couldn’t help but smile. Abby didn’t like that sort of stuff, but… He always wanted to try playing games. It was the one point where he envied Blue a little, since it got to play with its Master on the streams.
“…I hope is a gameplay” Sun whispers, knowing well it can probably be something much worse. Hell, even if it was a gameplay… what were the chances? They would just put him and Blue against each other, and Blue would win again, and Sun would be punished for it.
“Hm… C-c-could be a c-c-challenge” Blue says, crawling closer to Sun “…W-w-e did I-ice bath c-c-challenge”
“Ice bucket?” Sun frowns. They did that too. It was… not very nice.
“…Bath” Blue corrected “..But a-a-all baths are Ice baths a-anyway so was, was e-e-asy for Blue”
Sun didn’t really knew what to say.
“M-m-makeup challenge!” Blue tried, a bit excited about that one. Well… it wouldn’t be so bad.
They both straightened their posture once the door opened, Blue nervously peeking at their masters, Sun keeping his head down.
…When they came with a big bag, full of things… They stared at each other nervously.
Hopefully, the products weren’t punishment tools.

what if bruce, for authenticity shits and giggles just, never uses the voice modulator lucius gave him and permanently destroying his vocal chords
batman, not using a voice modulator and being forced to have surgery:
lucius fox : excuse me? what was that? “you were right, lucius, i should have listened to you from the start, lucius”
lucius fox: i fucking told you so
dick tries to go out as batman one (1) night and he comes back, chugs a gallon of water, says "what the fuck bruce" and goes on vocal rest for a month
dick, after doing the batman voice without a voice modulator: so that was the worst fucking experience of my life and i’m never doing that again
so obviously jason tries and he does the voice and he goes "what are you talking about, it's not that hard- *wheeze* no im having an asthma attack, im having an asthma attack"
tim manages to go out as batman for multiple days before the rest figures out he just uses a sound app with two (2) sounds that are just 'i am justice' and 'i am batman'
(it took him and steph multiple hours of editing because they couldn't find a recording that didn't have a loud SMACK right through the audio that was just bruce beating up some random criminal)
cass also uses the sounds so she just arrives to some active crime in all her 5 foot glory and you just have the lowest fucking batman voice going "i am justice"
gothamites realise that the bats actually use the voice sometimes and they just start listing them off whenever they hear it like:
is it batman? nah he's with the justice league
red hood? no he only does it in the mcdonalds drive thru
red robin? maybe
signal? nah he only patrols during the day
robin? no way, he always tries to do the voice to sound cool but he always gets voicecracks
robin: i am justi- *voice crack* FUCK
red robin in the corner: omg i got it on camera
(there’s youtube compilations of damian trying and failing to do the voice and all the comments are like “he’s baby,” “aww tiny boy” and damian dislikes all of their comments)
this is @im-cool-i-pinky-swear ‘s beautiful brainchild
