About the AUEdit
Spawning from fanart, this AU places the Big Four, and other such characters in the fandom, as characters from various properties associated with award-winning director Tim Burton.
Tim Burton is known for his vast visual imagination and preference for using outcasts and misfits as the focal point in his stories, as well as a use of spirits, Santa Clause, the Easter Bunny, a "Boogie-Man" (i.e. Oogie Boogie), Vampires (like Barnabas Collins) and other creatures in his work also appear in the fandom, fans would find a recurring focal point to return to. Because Coraline (a film who's main character that is loosely associated with the Big Four) was directed by Henry Selick, a close associate of Tim Burton and director of some of his most notable works, the odds of fans using Tim Burton's vast filmography is very likely.
In lesser cases, the Big Four would simply dress up as these characters for a certain occasion like Halloween.
- The Nightmare Before Christmas
- Corpse Bride
- Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland
- Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children
When paired with Jack in Hijack scenarios, he plays the part of Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas due to the both of them longing for something grander. At times, he'll also play the part of Victor from Corpse Bride in Hijack and Mericcup scenarios.
Due to his shared name with the eponymous character, Jack Frost is most often seen playing the part of Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas, the skeletal marking on his body painted on rather than him being an actual skeleton.
In Jarida scenarios, fans like to portray her as Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas.
While not as immensly popular in the AU as Jack and Merida, Rapunzel does hold a role, she is considered interchangable with Merida. Most commonly, Rapunzel is portrayed as Emily from Corpse Bride.
In other circumstances, Rapunzel plays the part of Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas. They both have similar hairstyles, an overprotective parent that values them for their own selfish reasons, and a dream for something more.
