Friends AU is an AU (Alternate Universe) in the Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons fandom.
Here, Hiccup, Rapunzel, Merida, and Jack, along with Tooth and Flynn, portray the six main characters from the popular sitcom Friends. Ideas for the AU are mainly portrayed through YouTube "crack" videos of clips from the characters' respective movies to audio of scenes from Friends episodes. From a certain standpoint, this AU can be considered a variation of Modern AU.
About the AUEdit
As in the actual sitcom Friends, the six characters are usually shown hanging out and talking about their relationships and getting into sticky, comedic situations. This idea is often used because it emphasizes the shipping and bonds between the characters, and is a more light-hearted alternative to the more dramatic and supernatural AUs that take over the fandom.
Here are the generally accepted choices for each character:
The Big FourEdit
Hiccup is almost always seen as Ross Geller, since both are very intelligent and somewhat socially awkward. They're both into animals -- dinosaurs and dragons. Also, when Merida is cast as Rachel Green, they fulfill the popular ship Mericcup.
Jack is usually cast as Chandler Bing, since both are often sarcastic, witty, and not noticed among everyone else. Despite their sharp tongues, they genuinely care about their friends. Also, when Rapunzel is cast as Monica Geller, they fulfill the popular ship Jackunzel.
Merida is usually cast as Rachel Green because of the fact that both were almost married against their will, and opposed to marriage. Also, when Hiccup is cast as Ross Geller, they fulfill the popular ship Mericcup.
Rapunzel is almost always cast as Monica Geller due to both having a passion for cooking and doing lots of chores. They both have negative relationships with their motherly figures: Rapunzel was only being used by Mother Gothel for her hair, while Monica's mother favors Ross over her. Also, when Jack is cast as Chandler Bing, they fulfill the popular ship Jackunzel.
Tooth almost always portrays Phoebe Buffay, since both are quirky, easily excitable, and have eccentric personalities.
Flynn is most often seen as Joey Tribbiani, due to both having a flirtatious, womanizing side. They also talk in similar lines (ex: both have said "How ya doin'? as a catchphrase at some point).
