What if, back before the whole ice-bomb thing in Subcon, Vanessa was friends with a noble in another kingdom? And to add onto that, what if they’re a creature that lives much longer than a normal human?
(( or, at least I think Snatch used to be human, you can never be sure with this game ))
So, mini AU time or just a side story plot thing
That person is very much still alive.
They invite Snatcher over because they “haven’t met in so long” and they’re “concerned for Vanessa”
Yeah this whole thing doesn’t last long
Snatch was just like “fine”, and shapeshifted as the Prince to come. Legit the only reason he even went was because Grooves was excited to be somewhere fancy
After a bit of bantering and him really wanting to leave, the conversation just leads to:
“Oh, how did my dearest friend Vanessa die? I hope it wasn’t bad!”
“She didn’t. She became a monster out of pure spite. She deserved a gruesome death.”
“That’s… not very nice of you. What did she ever do wrong? She was quite a darling!”
I think you can guess what happens next
Everyone’s surprised the house is still standing when they leave. He goes off for a bit, explaining what the peck she did wrong
“S-She would never do any of that! You’re lying!”
“Oh she did it all alright! Everyone that once served in the manor are ice statues now! Now look me in the eyes and tell me one more time she didn’t deserve the slowest death known to man.”
Snatcher considered burning the house down as they left, but he wanted the person to contemplate their life decisions for the next decade
Surprisingly he felt GOOD about himself after that. While he was alive, he would be beheaded for simply IMPLYING she ever did anything wrong. Now what’s anyone gonna do? Put him behind bars for him to instantly leave?
TL;DR, Snatch meets a person he hasn’t seen in centuries, doesn’t end well
