Up the stairs, above the bedroom door, theres a small crawl space. They found it once, by accident. Jokul had been laughing, helping Hyde paint the old wall when he’d dislodged a board, and they’d found the small attic. 
It had one window, plenty of cobwebs and one temperature. Cold. 
On days like this, he’d squeeze through the little opening into the attic, closing the board behind him and shutting out all light save for the light that came from that one window. 
It was calm. And it was quiet.
In a wordless, unspoken agreement apart from utterances of approval in his own mind, 
They didn’t bother him here.

It’s safe to say I’m lost,Without you in my arms,So I call your name and I pray you might,Come and watch over me like the pale moonlight,Until the sun comes back around
——
Future!AU for Jokul. 
300 years after Jack and Aster abandoned him and Hyde, many things have changed. 
Mother Nature saw the precious balance as tipped by the humans. too much polution, deforistation and overpopulation was destroying the planet. Without Jack, and the Guardians at the weakest they’ve ever been, she unleashed the winter court on the planet plunging it into another ice age. 
A mass extinction was caused, 70% of the Earth’s life obliterated in less then a century. The Earth reduced to a ball of ice and snow, a mere belt of green around the equator all that remained of a world since past. 
Humans were pushed to the brink. Reduced to small settlements, tiny villages of the remnants of mankind. Faced daily by monsters that only children seemed to be able to see, mankind did all they could to survive. 
They believed. 
Monsters became real, physical beings that they now could fight back against instead of cowering from shadows.Too weak to withstand the new hoards of winter spirits, outnumbered and outgunned, the Guardians turned to doing all they could and helping keep the humans alive. They lived with them, taught them what little magic humans were capable of doing, helped defend them from nightmares, wendigos, and all other manner of things that now went bump in the night. The aim of the game was to keep the humans alive. 
Unable to cope with Jack’s absence, the entire unraveling of his world and the slow unraveling of his own mind, Jokul pushed the fearlings that infected him deeper. In the 150 years since the start of the ice age, he learned to control them, even wield them, but at a cost. His frostbite worsened, his eyes bled to black more and more and each time a little more of himself was lost. 
He gave up hope of Jack’s return, and gave everything to keep mankind from being buried beneath the snow.

Still undefeatedWith my back against the ropesStill undefeatedYou can knock me down with body blowsBut you cannot break my hope
———-
In the 300 years after Jack and Aster’s absance, Hyde never gave up hope of their return. 
He told human’s stories. Of his mate, his kit, their bravery and their smiles. He told of the time that Jack defeated Oden, of Aster’s strength for one so young and of the joy he’d felt when Jack had agreed to let him mark him as his mate; A bond that once forged was a lifelong commitment. 
Hyde did not blame Jack for his absence, because though Jack was no longer with them, he could still feel the grief his mate felt at being torn from him with no way of returning. He felt Jack’s struggle to reach him and Jokul, the frustration, the rage and empty sadness that boiled within his fair haired partner. Hyde did his best to sooth the ache that Jack felt with his own memories of how Jack made him feel, projecting the love and comfort back along the bond that had been pulled taunt but remained strong and unbroken. 
It wasn’t much, and Jack would only be able to feel the barest echos of his emotions, but it was all he could do and he would do it for his mate. 
He fought as best he could against the oncoming winter. But like all the other guardians he fell when faced with the pure rage of mother nature. His eye was destroyed, and scars littered his body from the battles that followed as the world slowly turned to ice and snow. 
Weakened, and with no spring to herald, Hyde’s powers waned. To protect the Warren from the spread of the ice he put it on lock down, barring all entrances to protect the life that still bloomed there for when the Earth was once more healed. His magic began to fail him, no longer able to call forth the plants from below the soil when there was three feet of ice and snow in the way. Everything he had went into healing the sick and injured, till all he had in the way of strength was his bulk. Regardless, Hope stayed strong. 
Hope that Jack would one day find his way back to them, Hope that Aster was growing well and Hope that Jokul would not be consumed by the fearlings that raged within him. 
Hope they would survive this.

So about half way through this I realised that it kind of looks like a movie poser / movie wallpaper advertisement, so I’m going to do the same for Hyde’s poster. No idea what the film would be called if the Future!AU was a movie… My ask box is open to suggestions!
No watermark again guys so feel free to use as a wallpaper ect, but please don’t repost. If I find this posted elsewhere heads WILL roll.
