Them holding an election just to make sure it's what the people want and then losing is heart-wrenching, but makes a lot of sense.
I absolutely adore Tubbo helping them out because he thinks they want to try and build L'manburg back up and establish a fair and just government. I think that's amazing, especially when considering he wants to bring Tommy there and get away from the horrors of their old life.
Clingy duo having experienced the horrors of a survival of the fittest kind of anarchy and wanting to prevent that from happening on the smp is perfect and I love it.
But if L'manburg is an anarchist commune, then would this make the Syndicate a government?
s!Clingy duo starts a government, invites s!Ranboo because he's been ignored and left behind in this anarchist society and feels as if a government is a place they could really be heard. And then Quackity joins this government to protect Wilbur, but also believes that a government is a better option?
Snowchester could potentially just be a community or something. But it being a government would still make sense I think. I like the idea that even in this world Wilbur still tries to start a place based on freedom and safety where people don't have to worry about tyranny and the like.
Wilbur and Quackity as the bee duo is actually hilarious and I love that for them.
Oooh. Now I'm stuck thinking about Technoblade getting killed by Dream in the prison. I love the potential dynamic between Techno and Dream in this, but that's probably a whole separate ask of its own lmao.
Also s!Tubbo deserves to be able to kick Dream's ass. And in this au I am fully confident that he can. Girlboss. Also having Tubbo owe Dream a favor becomes almost scary to me in this au. In canon it's sort of seen as something that doesn't really bother c!Techno, but I think s!Tubbo would feel more as if it's a weight hanging over his head.
I will not think about Doomsday. I will not think about Doomsday.
I mean, c!wilbur also held an election to prove to himself he was what the people wanted and then lost, so...
s!clingyduo is just going through it all the time. they don't really want to hurt anyone, they honestly just want a home? except they're pretty determined to make this new place safe for themselves, meaning No Anarchy, and much like c!techno, they're not exactly very experienced in speaking languages other than violence. (doomsday is pretty rough).
I'd been thinking of the Syndicate as more of a found-family unit slash well-intentioned but badly executed neighbourhood watch, but the idea of it being a government is so goddamn funny actually. declaring independence in the middle of fuckoff nowhere just because they can, they want to, and other people don't want them to is exactly the type of petty bullshit I'd expect from all four of them.
quackity canonically was a fan of government and the type of power and mutual defense it gave citizens, so he'd be open to it! I'll be real, part of why he and c!wilbur get to be bee duo is because I find those posts about how they act like bitter yet reluctantly fond exes hilarious. and also niki’s birthday party stream.
snowchester in canon is sort of ambiguous considering it's a commune but people treat it as a government? in this au, that probably translates to s!wilbur deciding to try out a government system but virtually nothing changes except people call him mr. president now. I guess he'd get an ego boost out of it if nothing else? s!wilbur's arc is just c!wilbur's arc in reverse, lmao.
s!tubbo could absolutely kick dream's ass. even so, you're right that tubbo would be much more disturbed by the favour. and then you also have to consider that c!techno and c!phil generally stay out of each other's business, but clingyduo are... more communicative or more codependent, depending on how you look at it. so dream probably has some degree of power over both of them. not even a whole other universe can stop that motherfucker from manipulating minors.
