I doodled an AU where instead of ever trying to start some kind of protest movement, Suzan convinced Aiden to go back to the sanctuary with her.
For all the fun and excitement they enjoyed together travelling through cities and experiencing new things, their contrasting politics end up proving to be disastrous upon settling into a more permanent domestic setting.
Aiden’s aggressive nature would cause him to constantly come into conflict with Suzan’s role as the head authority, and never ceasing to push his own ideas and orders around. They would fight over this and a thousand other things, regularly. His need for control can’t make peace with the frustration of seeing Suzan sitting on all this land and influence over her inhabitants and not being able to take advantage of it.
Daniel would grow up to be a lot less soft, and significantly better at hunting. Aiden prevents Suzan from coddling him and spoiling him with gifts, which also means his obsession with fashion is diminished. He also picks up a lot of negative personality traits from Aiden’s influence that deeply concern Suzan, both for Daniel’s sake and for the Sanctuary’s future.
Thing’s be a bad time. But Daniel wouldn’t have those dreads anymore, so some might say it would be worth it.
I have so many AU ideas, can anyone even keep track
