Fan Fic: Ghost Rat
The Ghost Rat AU is an Alternate Universe Fic by an anonymous author on the Watchmen Kinkmeme set in a fantasy universe, who also wrote the equally good High School AU. Both are long, well-written and well-researched stories that remain close to the original characterisation.

The story centers around three major characters - the fantasy versions of Rorschach, Daniel and Laurie who later form the central OT 3 of the story. As in her High School AU, most of the cast of Watchmen appears to some extent.

The series has (as of this writing) two major arcs. The first arc opens to Prince Daniel fleeing for his life after his Evil Uncle Moloch has usurped his father's throne. In the forests near his home he encounters the masked and taciturn Ghost Rat (guess who that is) and Laurie, the Princess of the Sunset Coast (because Everything's Better with Princesses) who is running away from an Arranged Marriage to the Emperor of the Eastern Isles who has no heart and cannot die. The second follows the OT 3 plus a number of characters both original and otherwise on an archaeological expedition to find a dragon's bezoar to heal Daniel's poisoned mother.


This fanfiction series contains examples of:

  • Arranged Marriage: Laurie and Jon, though in the end they do get married...but she doesn't live with him, and neither of them have any problem with her taking lovers
  • Knight Errant: Daniel, which is part of the cause for Moloch's coup
  • Runaway FiancÚ: Laurie
