Even full AUs would be amazing. I want jock Troy secretly becoming friends with and then ~falling in love~ with weirdo outcast Abed, the cliche high school AU SO BAD. Like putting Abed in a locker and then feeling bad and ALL THE CLICHE.
Oh my god yes. Blatant sappy (but self-aware) cliche is a weakness of mine.
TBH this cliche is actually one of the reasons I ship Trobed. Jock/Nerd is such a thing for me, and the lack of fic focusing on season one Trobed, who have that dynamic, makes me sad :( I love high school AUs though, negl. I love that 1D fandom has so many, though it makes sense that that fandom would and Community wouldn’t, seeing as it already takes place in a school, and 1D are actually teenagers (okay yes Louis is twenty now but when 1D started he was eighteen so it still counts alright) and most of Community’s characters aren’t (though tbh I only really need Troy, Abed, and Annie for that high school AU. Maybe one where it’s Troy and Annie’s canon high school experience, only Abed goes to school with them too, and Troy and Abed eventually fall in love but keep it secret and Abed is the only friend Annie has after her ridiculous freak out because he’s the only person as weird as her and yes I want this SO BAD)
Also I just realized that every time I imagine or doodle high school AU Ziam, Liam’s a jock and Zayn’s an art kid/nerd, and they actually are kind of like Trobed (because Liam is sooooooooo Troy and Zayn is kind of like Abed? But seriously, Liam is soooooooo Troy it’s not even funny), so I think my shipping of Trobed is affecting my shipping of Ziam. IDEK.
But okay so like Troy is all cute and dumb but a really good friend who cares deeply and tries his best but doesn’t always understand everything but he understands people and that’s Liam too. Like, Troy’s speech to Annie in Mixology Certification and, though I hate this episode, his insights into Britta in Vampire Mythology and his general ability to get Abed when no one else does? Compare that to what Liam wrote about all of the boys in the Take Me Home album notes (is that is the regular edition?) and all of his insights into the boys that he has in interviews (especially the ones about Zayn BE STILL MY HEART), and it’s obvious that Liam is pretty much IRL Troy, personality wise.
(Also totally random but Donald rapped on Leona Lewis’ latest single and, well, all of the weird Liam/Leona stuff, and that all happened at the same time, so that’s kind of lulz to me when looking at what I just wrote)
And Zayn can be sort of Abed? I mean, at first I was just like, well, they are the other half of the pairing, and they are both my favorites, and they are both Muslim,
and they are both too gorgeous to be real? But then I remembered how Zayn said he took awhile to warm up to people, how he can be quiet and a bit distant around people he doesn’t know, but when he’s with the boys or his friends and (I assume, obv we don’t know much about this relationship on purpose) Perrie, he’s a lot more open and goofy. Like how he barely speaks in interviews, and spends most of them just crawling all over the other boys? Yeah, that distinct and extreme split between how he interacts with strangers and how he interacts with friends is like a less severe version of how Abed acts. And they are both huge nerds with a tendency for open plaid shirts over tees, so, you know. I guess there can be some similarities, just kind of surface levels once. They are both shy and weird, but not for the same reasons and not to the same degrees.
And then Liam was TDK!Batman for Halloween and that totally through this off because now I want to make bad macros with Bat-Abed’s quotes over pictures of Liam from Halloween. Are there any of him with Andy? Because I want to make one with that picture that says, “I know I’m not Batman. You could try being less of a jerk,” because lbr trufax.
OKAY I NEED TO GO TO BED NOW. THIS DAY HAS BEEN FUCKING WEIRD AND NOW I HAVE WRITTEN ALL OF THIS. UGH TOO MANY FEELS TUESDAY CAN BE OVER NOW PLZ. I AM SORRY TO MARIN AS AT LEAST HALF OF THIS REALLY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR ORIGINAL POST AND YOU ARE A REALLY COOL PERSON. SO I AM SORRY.
