vein!Tommyinnit AU. that's it that's the prompt
SKY I FUCKING HATE YOU I CANT STAND YOU AND FOR ONE I CANT EVEN BELIEVE YOU WOULD MAKE ME DO SUCH A HORRIBLE THING- I WILL NEVER EVER WRITE A TOMMYINNIT VEIN AU FIC THAT WAS JUST A JOKE AND-
It was an bit odd, the life of an vein was.
At first, he was just like the other veins. Working in Jack Mainfold's entire being, keeping the rather gangly teen alive.
Then, he realized he had a personality-or as much of a personality as a vein could have. Granted, he wasn't an human being, but he had enough life in him to set him apart from you everyday vein.
So, he named himself. Tommy.
Tommy had no desire to stray away from his host, because well, he would die, and also, the life of a vein was quite comfortable. You sat until some emotion or physical straining in Jack called for him to pop out.
Now, Tommy realized something. He had an deep, intrinsic, need for attention. But, there was only so much attention you could get from your other fellow veins, and that left Tommy feeling quite inadequate and nowhere to outlet his need for love and attention.
From listening in, he learned that his host, Jack Manifold, was an influencer. He broadcasted his life to thousands of people on 'twitch' or 'youtube' where it could be viewed thousand of times.
This was more than just interesting, this was an new revelation for him. If he would be able to get himself out there, he would be viewed by thousands of people. He would be known all over the world-he would finally obtain the attention he needed.
Ambition flared up within tommy, pulsing through his vein-y being. He knew what he had to do.
From what he knew, veins could only come to the surface when they were called. They couldn't just pop out at any old time, only when they were needed.
Of course, he didn't always come to the surface. Other veins nearer to him would sometimes be called out to instead. That was an bit of an roadblock in his plans.
So either he would be comitting some vein-murder to lower the chances of other veins being called out and potentially stealing his spotlight, or he had to devise some other less blood-shed inducing way.
That's when another revelation came to Tommy. He didn't have to kill other veins, he could simply just. Make himself prominently larger than the other veins on Jack's head. He would put himself on his forehead, in an open area where people could see. He would make himself an eyesore.
It was around that time that Jack had some friends over, one of them his other fellow influencer, Tubbo. The two planned to 'vlog' later that day at an golf course. Tommy didn't quite grasp the concept of what an 'vlog' was, but all he knew was that this 'vlog' would be put on the 'internet' where those thousands of people would flock and watch that video.
So Tommy put his work in.
He started working out, doing vein pushups and sit ups, trying to make himself the largest and buffest vein in all of humankind. He stole the nutrients from other body parts to benefit himself-although as of late there wasn't nearly enough water and mass amounts of alcohol entering Jack's system- slowly making himself larger and larger.
And then the fateful hour came. His keen vein-eye spotted the small black square in Tubbo's hand which they called, "Jack Mainfold's Phone' again, not entirely sure what it's purpose served, but all he knew was that it was another means of getting attention.
It was about an hour in when Jack crouched down on the faux-grassy golf course, out of breath despite seemingly doing nothing. Tubbo's camera was pointed right at him and-
This was it.
Putting all his strength and mental effort, Tommy physically felt himself getting pushed to his absolute limit, every fiber and atom within him ripping as he yanked himself closer to the surface level.
And then-in one last final push, he arrived atop Jack Manifold's bald head.
If Tommy could laugh or cry (or had an mouth or eyes, for that matter) he would've done so at the moment. The feeling of the black square hovering above him, the warmth of the sun spilling onto his veiny self signified his accomplishment. Soon, the whole would know of Tommy the Vein.
"Oh, look, Jack!" An voice broke Tommy out of him basking in his glory, amused and eccentric and polished with an british accent, "Lookit the vein that's popped out!"
It must be Tubbo, Tommy deducted. He's caught tailends of the boy's voice, and it matched up to his memory.
"Oh Christ," The next voice Tommy would recognize that voice anywhere-his own host. "Not this again, why are they so thick?" He felt Jack's hand prod him-which he did not appreciate.
"You got big veins, Jack, like an big man." The camera zoomed in closer on Tommy. Jack swatted him away.
"No, they look unattractive. What will the ladies think?"
Unattractive? Unattractive? Tommy, being an vein, had never encountered being offended before, but he assumed what he was feeling right now was exactly that. He put all that hard work into being called unattractive?
To put even more fuel to the fire, Tubbo laughed, an gust of spluttered air that passed through his mouth, "Everyday, Jack, you sound more like Tom."
Tommy was not prepared for the dead silence that instantly poisoned the air.
Jack inhaled sharply, cutting through the silence. From the amount of other veins popping out left and right on Jack's head, the tension had made itself abundantly clear. Tubbo had clearly stepped on an landmine.
Tommy, absolutely bewildered, offense momentarily forgotten, listened as Tubbo instantly blanched, stumbling over his words, "I-no, sorry, that was the wrong choice of words I-"
"Why are you apologizing?" Jack's voice was strung tight, "It's not like he wasn't your friend too."
"Yea, I know, but you.."
"..You smell a lot like alcohol these days, Jack." Contrary to Jack's tightly coiled voice, Tubbo's was unraveled, spilling out agonizingly.
The veins beside Tommy became even more prominent. "That-that's just-"
Tubbo's voice was stilted as he asked, "Should we cut the cameras here? I don't want you to have to send this footage to your editor-"
What? Nonononono, do not cut the cameras, that is a terrible idea, and if you do that I will come out this body and stab you
-Is what Tommy would have said if he had a mouth, which would have been very appreciated at the time.
"No, no." Jack responded, sounding old and weathered beyond his years, "I'll just edit this part out myself, it's fine."
The tension taut in Tommy went as soon as it came. Crisis averted. Although this 'Tom' guy had momentarily caught his attention, if he was going to throw Jack into that sort of adittude, Tommy wasn't sure how he felt about him.
Still, the tension hadn't left both Tubbo and Jack. There was an strained sense to the rest of the fleeting attempts at conversation; an damage torn into the dynamic that was irreversible.
Not too enticed on the prospect of having to listen to the rest of salavaged small talks, Tommy tuned the two out.
Who was this Tom guy, anyways? From the minimal data he had collected, he was A.)Tubbo and Jack’s friend and B.) evokes very negative emotions when his name is mentioned.
What happened to him? Was he killed? Murdered? From what Jack and Tubbo said, it seemed like he was dead.
Tommy paused his thoughts, bewildered. Why did it matter so much to him, anyways? His main focus should be getting that video out so his veiny glory could be witnessed by all.
Hogwarts au here: ok just imagine gremlins being friends and bonding with others
like: imagine Ron,Lavender and Tommy(i would love that trio ) in their 1-2 years Lavender and Ron dont date but are close friends!

ranboo and Luna friendship! Both are “ weird“ by standarts. Tubbo and Luna friendshiP! Both are straightforward and tell others what they think!
