Hey floral, not to beg on main but can you write some of the monster hunter AU 👉👈
Well this is for this prompt. As requested.
Oh and @xxmischieflovesxx im tagging you since this was based off your AU ask.
This is going to be another 3 parter.
Warning for gore and blood in advance.
Danny could still hear his parents screaming their names as he and Jazz were thrown into a giant arena by two men with real bullet-filled guns.
They slammed the gate shut, and suddenly his parent's voices were gone.
"You fought the guards?"
Danny looked up to see a tall blonde boy sneering at him.
"How humiliating for your family."
Danny blinked, not at all understanding the conversation.
He looked around to find there was a bunch of other high school aged kids standing around.
He quickly got to his feet to help Jazz off the floor.
"Listen," Jazz said as she dusted herself off. "We were told that we were going to a family reunion. Not whatever the heck this is. You all just saw us get forcibly shoved in here by men with guns. Why aren't you panicking?"
Some of the group laughed, while the others seemed like they were a few seconds from hurling.
"You don't know what this is, do you?" a girl asked.
"No, we were supposed to be meeting our grandparents for the first time." Danny cut in.
"You're grandparents?" The girl tilted her head. Her sharp brown eyes seemed to really look Danny over. "What's your Family name?"
"Fenton. Why?" Danny was confused.
There were a few murmurs and gasps from the other kids.
"Back up," The girl shook her head in disbelief. "The Fenton's don't have successors. The last of their Grand Kids died during the last Trial."
"DIED." Jazz squawked.
"Oh, you really don't know." The girl regarded both Danny and Jazz with pity. "This is a coming of age ritual for those of us born into Courser Bloodlines."
"Courser?" Danny asked.
"It's a nickname for our kind. Coursers are dogs and horses that are bred for hunting. We are bred for hunting." The girl explained.
"Hunting what?" Jazz wasn't sure she liked where this was going.
"Monsters." The blonde kid from before cut in. "In a few minutes, they are going to release some into this very pit, and we are all going to have to fight them to prove that we are worthy to carry the family name into the next generation."
Danny stiffened. He could fight. But Jazz.....
Jazz could throw a few punches, land a few kicks, but he didn't know if she could...
"They want us to fight ghosts without weapons?" Jazz sounded flabbergasted.
The kids around them started laughing.
"No, ghosts can't harm the living. We are going to be fighting wear wolves, vampires, the walking dead, etc." The blonde boy explained with a smirk. "Things that will turn you into monsters yourselves. If you fail to defend yourself, then you will become the opponents for next year's ritual."
"Wait, these monsters used to be family....." Cold shock washed over Danny.
"They aren't anymore. You will need to choose a weapon from these walls to kill them." The girl from before gestured to the various weapons firmly stuck in the dirt walls of the pit they were in. "They will only budge for those worthy to wield them. I pray you both are chosen by one. They have been passed down for generations. Each has a name and a story. They are placed back here when their previous wielder dies."
"You mean there's a chance some of us won't even be able to pull a weapon to defend ourselves." Jazz sounded like she was near tears.
"I am sorry."
Danny dragged Jazz away from the group before she could have a complete meltdown.
She was a shaking mess. Danny forced her to sit down before crouching in front of her.
"Look at me," Danny said, taking hold of his sister's chin as she gasped for air. "It's going to be okay."
"No buts," Danny said firmly. "These people think ghosts can't harm the living. We both know that's not true. This means they probably don't know other stuff. For all we know, the weapon crap could be stuff they were brainwashed to believe."
Jazz nodded. She was still shaking.
"And you know I would never let anything hurt you," Danny promised.
Jazz nodded again.
Suddenly a bell rang.
The other kids all took off towards the walls.
Danny and Jazz watched in horror as some of the kids shrieked when their hands touched a weapons handle.
The contact left their hands smoking and oozing blood.
"Danny...." Jazz felt her breath catch in her throat.
The gate they entered through opened again. Only this time, what came out wasn't friendly.
They were tall wolf-man creatures that reminded him of his friend wulf.
These creatures were emaciated and had a desperate and insane look in their eyes. They launched at the other kids in the arena with a cacophony of snarls, drool seeping past their open maws.
Danny watched in horror as one of them dug its claws into the blonde kid from before. It had landed on his back and pinned him to the ground.
"No, ghosts can't harm the living. We are going to be fighting wear wolves, vampires, the walking dead, etc." The blonde boy explained with a smirk. "Things that will turn you into monsters yourselves. If you fail to defend yourself, then you will become opponents for next year's ritual."
If he got bit.....
Before Danny knew what he was doing, his body was moving.
He took off and landed a good, clean punch to the creature's nose.
He remembered wulf telling him how sensitive that area was after the ghost had helped him fight walker.
The wolf creature yelped and fell backward.
Danny used the distraction to haul the blonde kid over his shoulders and ran back to Jazz. He dropped the boy like a sack of potatoes at her feet before turning around to see that the other kids weren't fairing well.
Luckily the wolf creature he had hit before was still knocked out.
Danny needed a plan.
He couldn't let everyone die.
He wouldn't let everyone die.
Danny surveyed the walls.
He needed a weapon he knew how to use.
Even if it burned him, Danny had a high threshold for pain. He could put up with it long enough to save everyone.
That's when he caught sight of a sword hilt sticking out of the wall. It was 4 rows up out of his reach.
Danny cursed. How was he going too... Wait.
"Jazz, I need your sweater."
Jazz threw it to her baby brother without question.
Danny ripped off the sleeves and wrapped them around his hands.
And then he jumped onto the wall. He used the other weapons as stepping stones and grappling points. The weapons began to glow red and smoke when he grabbed them. He tried to scale the wall as quickly as he could. He couldn't afford to catch fire or have his shoes melted off of his feet.
Once he was within reach, Danny grabbed the hilt of the sword and yanked it from the wall.
He fell to the ground, landing on his feet.
Shock ran through him.
The sword wasn't burning him like the others.
It was shining white in his grip.
The hilt was pure silver, but the blade was black and had constellations carved into it.
The constellations were shining and moving like they were alive.
Danny recognized them.
Leo Minor, Orion, Gemini, Lepus, and Hydrus.
The little lion, the hunter, the twins, the hare, and the serpent.
The screams of his sister pulled him from his thoughts.
Danny didn't even think. He drew his sword and ran to defend his sister and the boy he had just met.
Danny tackled the wolf creature to the ground and ran the blade through its chest. He tried desperately to not think about how much the beast looked like his friend wulf.
Danny didn't waste time. The moment he was sure it was dead, he pulled the sword out and ran to help the other kids who were pinned down by the other creatures.
Danny put his fingers to his lips and blew a deafening and sharp whistle.
"Hey!" Danny yelled, catching the attention of the other 3 creatures. "Leave them alone, biscuit breath!"
The wolf creatures charged him.
Danny expertly dodged their attacks.
He had never been so grateful for Pandora's fighting lessons in his life.
He sunk his blade into one of the creature's sides as it flew past him. Blood and guts spilled everywhere.
He quickly pivoted on one foot in enough time to run his sword through the chest of the second one. He had to use his foot to help pull the blade free in enough time to dodge the claws of the third and last monster.
Danny swung his sword high above his head and brought it down hard on the creature's neck, effectively beheading it.
Silence fell over the pit as Danny dropped to his knees in exhaustion.
He was covered in guts from head to toe and breathing heavily.
Reality suddenly caught up with him as the adrenaline from his obsession-driven instincts faded.
Danny remembered what he was told in the beginning.
These creatures very well could have been the cousins he never got the chance to meet.
Danny broke down sobbing.

Regarding My Unseelie Vlad AU (Part 2)
I had a few ideas this morning for how to adapt Danny and most of the main cast into this AU but be sure to check out part 1 though first if you haven’t already: https://thesoulspulse.tumblr.com/post/663324649078325248/regarding-my-unseelie-vlad-au-part-1
And with that, let’s begin!
Vladislav, (aka Vlad) the Fae King of the Unseelie Court:
Not much to say here, he’s basically just a really powerful and ancient fae that was never human with no prior history with Danny or Jack until that fateful night in the forest where he saw Danny and instantly wanted the raven-haired youth as a prince in his Court. And in this story he has no romantic interest in Maddie at all, if anything he might use their lives as a bargaining chip to get what he wants which is Danny to join him.
Danny Ó Fiachna:
Danny was slain by mistake by the Unseelie Court’s King as a child when Vlad’s fury got the better of him and he fatally injured Danny. (Only using this screenshot until I draw a version of Danny for this AU) However, Vlad revived Danny with his powerful magic soon after his father Jack ran back into the forest on foot, carrying his dead son in his arms, and desperately begged Vlad to give him back his life and blamed himself for angering the Fae King...
When offering his own life didn’t work, in exchange Jack tearfully swore to relinquish his son to Vlad one day, only wishing for a few more years with Danny since he didn’t deserve such a cruel fate. In the end Vlad agrees to his terms, but it’s more because he genuinely didn’t mean to harm Danny and still wants the boy to join him willingly and become a prince in the Unseelie Court one day. That said, Vlad could honestly could care about Jack’s pathetic display and in fact does blame Jack more than Danny for not being able to beguile the child into coming away with him to begin with.
Time passes, and Danny’s parents can’t help but hope they can find a way to break Vlad’s hold over Danny which is why they became Fae Hunters and forbade him from ever going into the forest alone. However, on his 14th or 16th birthday Danny starts hearing voices from the forest calling his name, the loudest of which is Vlad’s, and when he tells his parents about the strange dreams and voices they panic and decide to take everything they own and leave the village behind forever.
But Danny can’t accept that since his whole life is there, his friends are there, and he’s not about to let some stupid fae King ruin his life so Danny resolves to go find Vlad, defeat him, and break their magical connection so he can be free.
As expected though, Sam and Tucker find out about his plan and decide to travel with him into the forest to help Danny, especially after pointing out how he’s almost been lured into the forest several times now while walking barefoot there in some kind of trance. Obviously Danny doesn’t want them to get hurt and tried to talk them out of it at first but then he gives in and agrees to let them come with him so the three of them venture into the forest.
As for Danny’s other friend Valerie, sadly she only finds out what’s going on after the fact and then also ventures into the forest believing he had already been abducted by the Unseelie Fae under Vlad’s command and she is determined to save him.
Jasmine Ó Fiachna: Danny’s older sister isn’t much different than she is in the show, she believes in logical explanations more than magic and doesn’t believe in the Fae until she discovers that her brother Danny really does have some sort of strange power thanks to the fae magic that has long since become a part of him that has only grown stronger over the years.
The only difference here is she doesn’t make it into the forest by herself since her parents are terrified of losing her too. And so to keep Jasmine safe, they take her along with them to go after Danny and his friends and defeat the Unseelie King once and for all.
Jack & Maddie Ó Fiachna: I’m putting them together more because they basically became Fae Hunters for the same reason, to protect their family from the Fae and everyone else in general from their tricks and powerful magic. And ever since that night Jack has been searching find a way to get out of his deal with Vlad since it’s not fair that Danny has to give up his human life, his freedom, all because of the selfish desires of one powerful fae.
Valerie De Grey: Valerie is one of Danny’s closest friends (and a romantic interest) but she and her father also have their own reasons to despise the fae and their magic because her mother was also taken when Valerie was just a baby and her father had to raise her all by himself.
And just like in the show Valerie has feelings for Danny that grew once they became closer and he helped her get over a lot of that bitterness of the fae taking her mother so the moment she finds out he’s missing and presumed to be already kidnapped by the King of the Unseelie Court himself, Valerie grabs her hunting gear -which she had been hiding from her father and secretly learned a lot from Danny and watching his parents train over the years- such as a bow with iron arrows, throwing knives, and all that since her father Damon is the village blacksmith she goes after him too.
And before you ask no, I’m not trying to be stereotypical I just thought it would be the best fit job-wise since you need armor to protect yourself, right? Sure he also makes other mundane things too but he also taught Valerie a thing or two as more of a self defense sort of thing so she couldn’t be taken either or if a fae did kidnap her she could survive long enough to make it back home. The important thing to remember here is that the fae are weak to iron and susceptible to fire which would also be another good reason for Damon to take up blacksmithing after his wife was abducted by the fae and they never saw Valerie’s mother again despite all his efforts to find her when it happened.
Her family comes from nobility but she’s always hated that so she ran away from home once when she was little because she wanted to live on her own and become a herbalist. That’s how she met Danny, who stopped her from going into the forest alone since his parents knew all about its dangers, mostly fae related since this is after he was revived with no memory of what actually happened between him and Vlad. He thought it was all a bad dream back then.
Sadly Sam’s parents found out where she was hiding but thanks to Danny and Tucker they managed to convinced them to stay in the village instead of taking her to live far away because otherwise she might run away again but go even further out of their reach and they’d never see her again. Reluctantly they agree to stay, but on the condition that if she insists on becoming a gardener -which is just a cover story since she actually wants to grow medicinal herbs and not just pretty flowers- Sam has to resume her studies and come back home. Sam settles for that but also says they have to let her go play with her friends sometimes too since she’s sick of being alone in that lonely mansion of theirs with no one to talk to that’s her age.
And so, as the years pass Sam begins tending to her own garden in a small hut close to the village within sight of her parents mansion, but often times she still used to sneak out from under their watchful eye to hang out with Danny and Tucker undisturbed, sharing what she’s learned from her books while they teach her stuff that they learned from their parents about survival in the wilderness. In general though, Sam still doesn’t like to eat meat, though she doesn’t give Tucker a hard time about it since his parents are another important part of the village since they provide the meat, furs, and bones used for many tools that are used by the entire village. She still teases him sometimes though about his carnivorous lifestyle.
Lastly, it’s during this time that she also begins secretly practicing brewing potions and casting magic in order to help her best friend Danny when she finds out the Fae are real too. And Valerie is her rival to win Danny’s heart.
Tucker Ó Tuachair:
For the most part he’s still a fairly average resident of the village, but he’s known Danny for his entire life and was totally shocked to find out he had briefly died because the Unseelie Court’s King is actually real, as are all those stories about the fae Danny’s parents told them as a warning to never play too close to the forest which...as you might expect they did anyway not knowing any better and sometimes Danny would feel Vlad’s presence and shiver from an unnatural wintry chill.
The two boys used to fight with wooden swords all the time and Tucker even knows how to use a bow since he enjoys hunting (sorry, no technology in this world so maybe his hobby is carving things out of wood and bone? idk) and his parents taught him how to cook and prepare meat since his father is the village butcher alongside his wife, aka Tucker’s mom.
These skills become invaluable later during their journey into the forest since these days Danny is often very tired since he’s afraid to go to sleep at night because that would mean he’d start having strange dreams again so Tucker does most of the hunting for them while Sam sticks to gathering other edible foods in the forest such as mushrooms and berries thanks to her vast knowledge of plants.
Honestly, I could go on but I’m going to stop there since not EVERY main character has to end up in this story. This post turned out longer than expected as it is! But there you go, this is the end of part 2 and I hope you enjoyed it! Oh, and down below I added a list of other potential characters in this AU so feel free to check them out!
Dani (I might spell it as Danae) the Fae: I may sneak Dani into this AU as one of Vlad’s fae daughters that he uses as part of an attempt to deceive and capture Danny, but after being treated with such genuine kindness while “pretending” to be a kidnapped village girl who managed to get away from the dreaded Unseelie Court instead of an Unseelie fae herself.
Unfortunately for Vlad, she ends up getting too emotionally attached to Danny the longer they travel together. Taking pity on him Dani ultimately decides to betray her father by promising to help him find a way break from Vlad’s magical bond instead in secret after leaving Danny’s side for his own safety since Vlad can still use his influence as the Unseelie King on her to make her do his bidding regardless of her own will...
Fright Knight: Vlad’s most loyal servant who is the main fae sent to capture Danny as a last resort.
Aragon & Dorathea/Dora: These two already have a lot of fae traits so maybe when Vlad gets more irritated that Danny keeps eluding capture he sends one of them out to capture him, the only difference here is they’re not royalty per say but they do have a high ranking in the Unseelie Court.
Too bad Aragon wants to overthrow Vlad and become the new Unseelie King which either results in his exile or destruction. Dora is a bit too timid in human form but as a dragon Vlad can command her better. Might use the archer and the executioner ghost as Aragon’s underlings too.
Nocturne: Because yes I will use any excuse to add him into a story since I love his design so perhaps he’s the one helping Vlad influence Danny’s dreams and is among Vlad’s most powerful underlings who has already helped him lure many mortals into the Unseelie Court.
Cujo: I think it would be so cool to add Cujo as a church Grim which is a guardian spirit that protects graveyards.
Frostbite: A winter fae of the Seelie court who saves Danny and the others from a magical blizzard spell cast by Vlad to slow them down.
Guys in White: What if I added them as Templars obsessed with eliminating all fae and changlings from the world regardless of if they help or harm mortals? So they go after Danny since he is fae touched and therefore dangerous in their eyes.
Dan: Might have him appear as a vision or hallucination of what Vlad wants him to become which has the opposite effect and makes him more determined not to.
Spectra: An evil fae who feeds on the trio’s misery but who is then scared off by Vlad as soon as he finds out what she’s been doing which could ruin all of his plans for Danny.
Freakshow: A charlatan who controls a few fae using an old relic his family made with blood magic that wants to abduct Danny when he realizes the boy has fae magic inside of him.
Ember: A siren/banshee that just wants everyone to pay attention to her songs.
Skulker: Once a royal huntsman turned fae, he is ordered to capture Danny too but fails.
