1638: help me – OneshotPosted: December 30, 2016
Hello, dear Patrons, and welcome to my final post of the year!
And what better way to end the year than with a Reader fic! And it’s from Five Nights at Freddy’s!
Too bad, I’m doing it any way. I took one look at the summary and knew this would be perfect for me.
this is a mangle x reader this is where you get with mangle yes mangle is a male in this and so is the reader yes it is yaoi please enjoy my story
…I know, I have questionable tastes in literature.
There has been quite a bit of debate among the FNAF fandom as to whether or not Mangle is male or female – very vitriolic debates in some corners of the Intertubez – to the point where the series creator, Scott Cawthorn, actually had to address the issue personally;
“OK. People have been asking me about Mangle’s gender for almost a year now, and I think it’s time that I finally answer the burning question about whether Mangle is a boy or a girl, so that this community can finally put the matter behind them. The answer is- Yes.“
I can’t really understand why anyone would be able to assign a gender to something that looks like this;
Especially since, as a robot, Mangle’s gender would be a matter of personal choice (assuming he/she/they/it is self-aware) anyway. Still, the idea of a non-binary character in a well-received work is pretty fantastic. Since the author of this fic is insisting that Mangle is male, I’ll be using male pronouns to refer to him.
Great, a POV Tag. Why does a Reader fic, which are usually written in the second-person need a POV Tag? At least the author used the correct form of your/you’re for it.
And ninety percent of the fic is in bold and italics. :eye-twitch: Swell.
i needed money because i wanted out of this hell hole i know as a home.
I’m so poor that I can’t afford a Shift key.
so i picked up a newspaper that i had found this morning. and i found many of places that had help wanted ads.
Does anyone still use newspaper classifieds? I know I’m old-fashioned, but damn.
but the one that caught my eye was the help wanted ad for a night watch guard.
For around a hundred bucks a week. That’ll really help my finances.
then i remember about when my mom was still alive and she had took me there when i was a child.
Last I checked, my Mama was still alive. She has taken me to a lot of places, though, and some probably had night guards on staff. It would be nice if I could narrow things down a bit.
that was back when i was still 6 years old
the good day i went there only about 3 other times.
No numerals in the narration, me! I should know better than that.
until the horrid day that my mother… the only otherperson that i thought cared about me
Ummm…What? If my mother is the “only other person”, then that would mean there’s one other person who cares. Who is it?
“it been so long since i last saw him”
Saw who? Who am I talking about? And why do I think that this person would remain at a tacky pizza parlor until I came back?
i said he was my best friend his name was mangle i never did keep my promise to him.
My best friend has a badass name. Are they perhaps imaginary as well?
i never went back because my father.
…Did what? What did Daddy do? Was it that thing where he makes a fuss because we didn’t get enough napkins? That’s so embarrassing.
mommy! mommy ! can we please go to freddy fazbear pizzeria! . you said your mother then told you that she had planed to the she said just go get in the car.
I think my Mom just told me that she was going to scrape the sides of the car smooth with a woodworking tool. Or something.
(TIME SKIP BY MIKUO HATSUNE)
Who, the Vocaloid chick?
were finally here i was so excited that i ran right up to the door and opened it up for my mother.
Aren’t I the perfect little gentleman?
the man at the counter smiled at me and said aren’t you just a sweet heart.
Back off, creeper.
me being the shy child i was i blushed and hid behind my mom. my mom then started talking to the man at the counter and told me to just go on in and have fun and that she would order pizza later.
Like anyone would go to a place like Freddy Fazbear’s for the food. You could probably serve me cardboard with ketchup on it and I’d eat it. (Which is exactly how the pizza at Showbiz Pizza tasted, now that I think about it.)
so i ran off to explore first i went to the game area i then played a few games to the prize area to get a prize and i decided on a mangle plush.
What a noob; everyone knows you stockpile your tickets until the end of the night so you can get a better prize. Although I must be really good at whatever games I was playing if I got enough tickets to trade for a stuffed animal right away.
(i know they are not real just deal with it.)
Is that … Is that an Author’s Note in the middle of my flashback?
Mangle plushies do exist in real life (I’ve seen them on Amazon and elsewhere) but I assume the author is referring to them not existing in the games. There are a number of stuffed animals visible in the games, primarily of the central characters rather than their improved “toy” versions or the Funtime versions; since Mangle is essentially Funtime Foxy it would make sense that there’s not a plushie of him if that was the case, but most businesses with colorful mascots like to have profitable toys made of those mascots so it wouldn’t be a stretch for one to exist somewhere in-game.
then i went to find my mom and she was not there.i look all around but i could not find her but i could feel eyes on me so i look around .
Is it that creepy counter guy from before? :squints at fic: He’s not wearing purple, is he?
i saw the animatronics looking at me with a sad look in there eyes.
Their expressionless, completely artificial eyes.
then someone walked up to me and said: is your name (y/n) and you told them that was your name.
Dude. I should not be talking to strangers. Where’s my Mom?
and they told you your mom had left you a note you took the note and went to one of the tables to read it .
She left me a note? I’m six years old; why is she leaving me a note? Where did she go?
i know this is only your 6th birthday.
It’s my birthday?!? And you didn’t give me a party or presents? You’re a bad mother.
but you would find this out sooner or later. i hate you so much you were the worst mistake that ever happened to me.
… A really bad mother. I’m six and it’s my birthday. The hell, man?
even the abuse was better than having you i wish i never had you .
There’s telling instead of showing, but this? The audience is being told of this abuse second-hand via an in-fic note. Talk about the Onion of Failure.
i wish when i heard i was pregnant i had a abortion. but sadly i was notified too late that i was pregnant.
Again – I am SIX. YEARS. OLD. I probably don’t even understand what you’re talking about.
so i hope you rot in hell you worthless piece of shit. have fun with your damn father you fucking piece of shit and dont worry there will be more torture for you there if you’re even smart enough to make it home.
Is my nickname Piece of Shit? Because that seems to be my mother’s favorite expression. I mean, my real mother calls me Smartass but it is said with love.
i hope you burn in hell.
Wow. My fic-mother is a real bitch. Why didn’t she just drop me off and leave? Why leave me a note like that? I’m six! I probably can’t read half of what she wrote.
i felt a tears stream down my face.
Just one, though. Because I’m a badass.
i was cry so much i did not look where i was going until i ran into someone. so my kindness kicked in and i looked up to say i was sorry only to be met with a animatronic
I bet I apologize to mannequins when I bump into them, too.
It’s what now? Is the animatronic going to try to convert me?
Good luck with that.
MANGLE:hello child why are you crying?
(Y/N): my mommy does not love.
Oh, it’s conversation time. Dude, this is not how you do dialogue. Also, my six-year-old self does not grammar well.
MANGLE: im sure she does.
(Y/N): no she left me here to die see *holds out note*
I’ve got written proof my fic-mother loathes the very thought of my existence!
MANGLE: *reads it then looks sad* im sorry child *looks at toy freddy*
Does Mangle know how to read? Why is that a thing he would need to know how to do?
TOY FREDDY: *comes over* what’s wrong mangle
MANGLE: this child does not know how t get home.
Ummm… That’s not really what you should be taking away from this.
TOY FREDDY: don’t worry child will have someone contact your parents later so enjoy your birthday party for now.
So I am having birthday party? Here, at Freddy Fazbear’s? Was my mother the only chaperone? If so, who is going to take the other kids home?
Thanks for that, I couldn’t tell by the lack of dialogue.
(THIRD PERSON POV.)
you hung out with mangle for a few hours
Hours?!? I spent hours with an animatronic and no one noticed? And this isn’t third-person, it’s second.
and then a guard named purple guy came up to me.
And now we’re back to first-person, because sudden perspective shift is sudden.
I seriously doubt that “purple guy” is Purple Guy’s real name; he’s just called that because no one knows his real name.
he said he would be taking me home so i said goodbye to mangle.
Dude, I should not be going anywhere with Purple Guy. He’s bad news.
And why hasn’t anyone called the cops? A small child was abandoned at a restaurant for hours!
i promised him i would come back soon to see him and he said he would be waiting.
That’s certainly comforting and not at all exceptionally creepy.
i then walked off with the purple guy to his purple limo.
The security guard has a limo? Why?
and got in we were close to my house and then he stopped the car. i looked at him with a questioning look and he stab me and i screamed in pain.
Wow. That was sudden, yet not completely unexpected.
but my instinct kicked in and i opened the door and ran home as fast as i could.
Because I’m a six-year-old boy who can run faster than a limo even after I’ve been stabbed.
(END OF FLASHBACK)
Damn it all to hell! What purpose do these frickin’ tags serve? The perspective never changes!
i shivered at the memory of the purple guy. anyways pushing the thought away i called freddy fazbear’s pizzeria to see if the spot was still open.
So I was abandoned at the restaurant during my sixth birthday and then stabbed by a psycho, yet I want to go work there? What the hell is wrong with me?
luckily it was open and he said i could start tonight and to to come at 10:00. so he could show me around and let me meet the other worker and the animatronics. i said i would be there.
There’s already another worker? Then why are they hiring another one? A novelty pizza restaurant doesn’t need two night guards.
(TIME SKIP BY MANGLE)
Seriously?!? WHY ARE THE TIME SKIPS SPONSORED?
i got to the pizzeria and went inside the manager met with me and showed me around and introduced me to the other workers one was named jeremy he had brown hair and blue eyes (don’t judge me)
Is that an Author’s Note? Or is this more internal dialogue? Do I like men with brown hair and blue eyes?
and he was shy he was so cute
I guess that’s a yes. And cute people aren’t necessarily more shy than non-cute people.
there was a guy named mike and he looked scary
“Scary” is neither a hair color nor an eye color.
and he was holding jeremys waist
Awww, he stole my bae. Wait, I thought there was only going to be one other person here.
and then i met fritz and he was funny
Now there’s three guys here? This isn’t the set-up for some weird yaoi orgy, is it?
then i met my nightmare purple guy
Who should probably be dead and locked inside Springtrap now.
and my eye went wide
Just the one, though.
and i started to hyperventilate and jeremy rushed over to help me calm down after he calmed me down they asked me if i was ok and i said yes then we finished up and i went to the office
…And then the baby just cryed and then Legolas pick her up and hold her and then the baby stoped crying…
(TIME SKIP BY TOY BONNIE)
Flaming monkey-farts! Why is this even a thing?
it was 4:30 and i was terrified they were trying to kill me
…Am I in the game now? I’m so very confused.
then i saw it a purple blure and and it walked into the office.
AHHH! NIGHTMARE FREDDY!
it was the purple guy!
fuck i still have 1hour and 30 minutes.
This isn’t a game and you don’t get instantly saved if you reach a specific time; if Purple Guy is genuinely dangerous then he remains a danger regardless of the time.
This is not how you dialogue, author.
PURPLE: hi (y/n)
(Y/N): what are you doing here *glares*
That’ll really show him who’s the boss.
PURPLE: i work here remember
(Y/N): you work day shift not night shift *glares*
I will subdue you with the power of my glare!
PURPLE: you caught me. i came here to finish what i started all those years ago now stay still
AHH! THE GLARE ISN’T WORKING!
I feel like kicking something really hard now.
when he said that i started running as fast as i ran into a room and i don’t think he saw me go in here.
If I’m in the restaurant then he wouldn’t have any trouble seeing me since it’s fairly open and there are cameras everywhere.
i relaxed till i heard loud static right behind me.
i looked back and saw mangle i ran to him crying and said i’m sorry i did not visit please forgive me.
I really should be more concerned about the insane killer running after me.
he just looked at me with the static going on so i fixed his voice box.
Because that’s something I can do, apparently.
MANGLE: *turns human* its ok (Y/N)
Wait a second – fixing his voice box turned the robot into a human? How do that?
(Y/N):can i tell you something
Ye gods, this is painful to read. I wish I could take out my eyes, but Koori-chan borrowed my ice cream scoop and hasn’t brought it back.
the purple guy walked in and looked at the time there was 1 hour till your shift was over.
Does that mean I was running around for a full half an hour? Author, you are seriously misjudging both my ability to run as well as my ability to give a shit.
just enough time to kill you he ran up and stabbed you in the stomach 4 times you looked at mangle and said please help.
It took him a frickin’ hour to stab me four times in the stomach? Damn, is he slow.
you saw him yell something but you could no longer hear him.
Is “him” the Purple Guy or Mangle? Because they are both male in this fic.
i say more humans walk in then mangle ran over to me puting my head on his was crying i some how could hear again.
Why is Mangle putting my head on his head like I’m a person-hat? How would he even do that? I don’t understand what’s going on.
he was saying how he was sorry and he did not mean for this to happen.
It’s not his fault that purple asshole stabbed me. If anything, I blame myself – I was the idiot who came back to the restaurant and I’m also the idiot who didn’t immediately leave after seeing that my childhood assailant was working here.
he said i coul- i put my finger to his lips and make him stop talking.
Ugh. I’m gonna be ill.
by this time they were all around me and i looked mangle in the eye.
Oh, Auntie Em; I had the strangest dream…
c-can i-i tell y-you what i w-was s-saying and mangle said yes and i said i-i love you.
Because I’m a horribly clichéd person, apparently.
i smiled and he was blushing and his eyes were wide.
But he’s a robot! He can’t blush! No, wait; he didn’t turn into a human, didn’t he? It hard to keep track of anything with how rushed this pacing is – yet it also feels very stagnant and stuttery.
everything started to blur and the last thing i heard before i blacked out was mangle say i love you to please dont die no me.
If you don’t want me to die, maybe you should call 911 and get me some frickin’ medical attention.
:spits out coffee:
There’s a what?!?
you woke up a week later in a hospital and you were surrounded by all the animatronics and guards you looked at mangle who was smiling sweetly at you.
I have questions. Why are the animatronics at the hospital? Why are all the guards at the hospital? And does “all” include Purple Guy? Because he’s the reason I’m in the hospital in the first place. Him and my own horrible life choices.
MANGLE: morning sleeping beauty.
(Y/N): im not a girl but good morning
Ha-ha; funny story about that…
TOY CHICA: im so glad you lived we need to throw you a party when you get out!
Nothing says “I’m glad you didn’t die” like subpar pizza and lukewarm soft drinks.
(Y/N): fuck when i get out im not staying here
you get out of bed pulling the needle out of your arm and puts you cloths on and looks at them.
(Y/N): lets get out of here i hate hospitals
One – that’s not how a person is discharged from a hospital, nor is that how you safely remove an IV line. And two – I was just stabbed in the belly! Do you want me to die from septicemia? I need antibiotics and painkillers, bitch.
you all leave the hospital unnoticed and go to freddys to throw a party.
You mean to tell me that a recently stabbed person, an unknown number of giant animatronics, and several security guards, all snuck out of the hospital together?
I changed my mind. This is a terrible hospital, I’m probably better off on my own.
after the party you were saying bye to them all.
Bye! :waves: I’ll see you all in therapy!
then mangle kissed you and you kissed back.
I am such a slut. I bet I even let him :gasp!: hold my hand!
then pulled away and said i love you and he said i love you too and you lived happily for the rest of you lives.
And then Legolas said”all you alright”and then Laura said”yes I am”.Legolas said”I am soo happy”and then Laura said”Do you want to be my boyfriend”and then Legolas said”yes I will be your boyfriend”and then Laura and Legolas kissed again.
And that’s the end of my epic yaoi romance with Mangle, even though it was barely Shōnen Ai. See you in the new year with a new fic!
