To be honest, I'm kind of suffering writer's block on what to do. Violet's arc changed significantly from what I initially planned it to be, and now I have to figure out what she's going to be doing when the Aftons aren't terrorizing her. Lucas's arc has mostly remained the same from what I planned it to be, but I may have to expand it to keep with the pattern between him and Violet, since Violet's has also extended from what I originally wanted it to be. The thing is, there are gaps in the story that I need to figure how to close. Plus, I've been busy with a lot of things lately (I know, it's a terrible excuse but it is what it is).
I'm also kind of holding off until Help Wanted releases in case there's any new lore in it, so I can tune the story to fit what's presented. For what it's worth, I appreciate that you want to see more.
She could, but then I'd have to change the rules of how the Virtual Domain works. Lucas and Elizabeth control what goes in and out of the Domain. The reason why Shadow Fredd has access is because of an actual reason that I'm not sure you're aware of, so I won't say anything about that. And it's unlikely that XOR and RXQ would be ensnared in the Domain since their test is on Violet and Susie. Unless they wanted more test subjects, but is it necessary to introduce more protagonists that would share focus with the Hartmann sisters' story arc?
Violet's story does, yes. All of Violet's arc is her memory being manipulated by the Afton siblings to believe that she's living her normal life, which Lucas and Elizabeth can tamper and interfere with now that she's caught in their digital simulation. Her story is trying to figure why all of the weird stuff's been happening to her while also bonding with Susie.
Well, yes. Remember how Elizabeth kidnapped Violet in the prologue? While Violet was unconscious, the Aftons linked her up with the Domain. Basically they placed her in some capsule and uploaded her soul inside a digital simulation (it kind of breaks the rules of how FNaF works, but hey it's a fanfic). Because of her presence in the Domain as a subject, Lucas has access to her memories as the administrator and can do whatever the f**k he wants with them, including altering the layout and setting of the Domain.
Aside from Lucas and Elizabeth being generally insane, part of the conflict, after Violet figures out what's going on, she contemplates whether she should stay in the Domain and keep living the perfect life she has there even though she'd be abandoning her family and friends in real life, or if she should try to return to the real world, even if her family is broken apart there.
It comes to the point where Lucas and Elizabeth are both content to let Violet stay, but they warn her that if she tries to escape, they won't make it easy for her.
Normally, Lucas and Elizabeth would let her go without killing her because they were planning to erase her memory of the experiment and bring her back home with no strings attached, but due to interference from within the Domain itself, they're unable to utilize memory manipulation, which means they literally have no choice but to try to convince her to stay, or try to kill her if she escapes.
Also, not sure if it's crossing the line with OC privileges, but part of the reason is because Lucas and Elizabeth have grown attached to her as a subject of the Domain and want her to stay because they view her as a pet.
There is no Domain version of Susie. The real Susie is also a subject in the Domain along with her sister. Prior to Violet's abduction, the Aftons were able to secure VDC Chica (FE had thrown her out while removing some of her parts to make the endoskeleton in the Chica seen in FNaF 1), and they melted some of her parts to make remnant before inserting it into the Domain.
However, Violet's parents and friends in the Domain are indeed artificial, and Lucas and Elizabeth control their routine as well.
What would be interesting to see would be that Violet decides she wants her real friends and parents in the domain, and so Lucas and Elizabeth try to kill them IRL to put their souls into the simulation (To keep Violet happy so she doesn't try to leave the domain)
But I imagine that it's not Violet that would want to do that, but rather Lucas and Elizabeth attempting to do that regardless of how she feels. Which means that Lucas and most of the Twisteds would stay behind, while Elizabeth and two of the Twisteds goes out and tries to kidnap Violet's mom and friends in the real world (it's gonna be hard to kill Violet's dad if he's in prison because of William). This also kind of gives Violet even more motivation to get out of the Domain in order to prevent this from happening, and can also help potentially set up what happens when Violet climactically faces off against the Aftons.
Although, now thinking about it, it would probably be better if I had Elizabeth stay behind to monitor Violet instead, while Lucas goes out. That way, Violet can struggle with Elizabeth and three of the Twisteds first, before going after Lucas to stop him and the other three from killing either her friends or her mom.
Or should I find a way to have her go against them both at the same time?
But remember how I said Violet and Susie's dad was in prison because of William? Well, he was actually wrongfully convicted for the MCI. Despite genuinely loving his wife and daughters, he was suspected due to having a history of mental health issues in the past... and because of the crime of murdering five children, he was given the death penalty.
He may or may not be RWQ in this story. And if he is, then he has a pivotal role in helping his daughters regain their memories and escape the Domain.
We don't know everything William did aside from luring the kids. Maybe he tampered with security footage to make it seem like he was the same person wearing the suit when luring them. Mr. Hartmann was one of the employees working the night shift on that June 26th. He could've worn Spring Bonnie earlier at night to perform, and then went back to the safe room to take it off. Then William wore the suit and lured the five kids, took the suit off, and then went into the office and edited the footage to make it look like Mr. Hartmann lured them instead. To be clear, William wasn't working as a security guard that night, which would help divert suspicion away from him. Even if authorities noticed the skips in time, they would assume that Mr. Hartmann did it himself to prevent getting caught.
Or I could just scrap that idea if it wouldn't make sense. But at the same time, we know that someone was convicted, assuming Scott didn't retcon that. Maybe I don't need to delve into the specifics of how Mr. Hartmann was framed, just make it clear that he was.
There is something called Project Libitina, which is implied to involve the human experiments Yuri mentioned while talking about the Portrait of Markov. Two of the new characters mentioned in the site are Renier and Elyssa.
Hmm... Interesting... I’m excited! I always thought the book had possible ramifications! It had (at least in my playing experience) 2 different things 1) some lady is on the run from the government 2) these people were like thirsty for blood... I think? So I am interested to see what will happen
