Watch Boy & Lucky Girl: Season One is an Alternate Universe Fic Ben 10 fanfiction created by csgt

16-year-old Ben Tennyson finds a strange watch that can turn him into aliens. And his cousin Gwen - who has magical powers of her own - helps him to fight off evil from Earth and space.

The story is ongoing.

Watch Boy & Lucky Girl provides examples of:

  • Adaptational Heroism: Charmcaster. While she has some redeeming qualities in the cartoon, she was always portrayed as a villain with a hatred for Gwen. This version of Charmcaster, however, is an Anti-Hero with a friendly rivalry with Gwen.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Sunny. While she's not a hero in Ultimate Alien, this version of Sunny is far worse than her cartoon counterpart. An example is her relationship to Antonio: in Ultimate Alien, he was her boyfriend, but here she brainwashed him with a love spell. She also has no problem with killing innocent people to achieve her goals.
  • Age Lift:
    • Ben and Gwen were 10 years old when they got their powers, but in this story they only turn into heroes later, when they are 16 years old.
    • Albedo in his human form look like a 30-year-old Ben instead of a teenage Ben.
    • Sunny is a teenager in the cartoon, but is far older in this version, and she looks to be in her late-twenties because of magic.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Ben and Gwen call each other Doofus and Dweeb. It can be an affectionate nickname or an insult (or both) depending on the context.
  • Alternate Universe Fic: It's a retelling of Ben 10, with elements from all shows.
  • Antagonistic Offspring: Devin Levin is a good guy. His son Kevin isn't.
  • Being Human Sucks: Ben thinks he isn't special without the Omnitrix. And when he unlocks a sorcerer alien - Magus Viridis, who looks exactly like Ben but has magical powers - he says he would gladly turn Magus into his default form if he could.
  • Composite Character: Director Steel is a combination of Lieutenant Steel and Devin Levin.
  • Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: Played With. Gwen has no problem with hitting Ben, pinching him, punching his arm, stomping on his foot... Ben usually smacks her on the butt in return, noting that it's the only form of physical payback that he can give her, since he's a man and she's a woman. See "Flirtatious Smack on the Ass" below.
  • Fantastic Racism: Humans to aliens and aliens to humans, to various degrees.
    • Examples of aliens being racist towards humans: Sunny, who is an alien witch, has no problems killing humans and compares them to cattle. A less hateful example, Verdona believes her species to be superior to humans, but she doesn't use this belief as an excuse to hurt humans.
    • Examples of humans being racist towards aliens: The Forever Knights want to completely eradicate aliens from Earth. A less hateful example, Molly Gunther doesn't like aliens in general, but she works alongside them fine.
  • Flirtatious Smack on the Ass: Played with. Ben usually smacks Gwen on the butt, noting that it's the only form of physical payback that he can give her because she hits him sometimes. Gwen thinks Ben is just being a perv and finding excuses to touch her butt, despite them being cousins. And it's heavily implied that she is right.
  • Hot Witch: Basically every witch in the story so far fits this trope, like Gwen, Charmcaster, Sunny and Verdona (who, due to magic, looks to be in her late-thirties instead of an elderly woman).
  • If You Ever Do Anything to Hurt Her...: Verdona threatened Ben with this speech, saying that she'd kill him if he's not a good potential boyfriend to Gwen. Ben's answer is to throw the threat right back at her, saying that he'd kill her if she's not a good mentor to Gwen.
  • I Want Grandkids: After Ben unlocked a Sorcerer alien, Magus Viridis, Verdona says she would like Gwen to have children with Magus.
  • Living a Double Life: Ben and Gwen created fake identities with different looks - Bennet Nyson and Lyn Bezel - to prevent their real identities from being discovered.
  • Loves My Alter Ego: Ben had a huge crush on Lucky Girl before he learns that she is Gwen. And after he finds out, his crush continues.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Played straight and inverted. In this version, Verdona is Natalie's mother, but unrelated to Frank, Carl and Ben, making her Gwen's maternal grandmother instead of paternal grandmother. And Hex is Gwen's maternal grandfather. This also makes Gwen and Charmcaster first cousins once removed.
  • Religion of Evil: The Vilgaxian Empire worship Cthulhu as god and Vilgax as his messiah.
  • The Social Darwinist: Eric "Conduit" Edwards. He believes resistance to the Vilgaxians is useless because they are more powerful than humans. He allied himself with them and shares their religious belief in Vilgax and Cthulhu.
  • Wizards from Outer Space: The Sorcerers are actually a human-like species from another planet. They relocated themselves to Earth a long time ago.
  • Wizards Live Longer: Thanks to the Waters of Youth. It's not limited to wizards, humans could just as well have their lifespan extended by the Waters, but wizards are the only ones who know this secret.
