What may seem like no big deal now can change everything later

Warnings: it's inspired by this Fairly Oddparents fan comic series created by Nellie's Nest, so the characters will be in and out of character, include drinking, adultery, implied s*****e, miscarriage, etc. so don't read if you're sensitive to any of the list

He never planned for things to go South. He just had to let his personification of taboo creativity take control for the sake of neing brave. What initially started as a "what if" come true turned into an addiction overtime; an addiction that led to an extra bitter logic, an anxiety who thought it was too late to save him, someone who was considered his hero who has turned his back on him, a promoter of self care shaming his new habits, and a tainted morality. As a result of a tainted morality, he never saw anything wrong with fulfilling his addiction until...

"What do you mean you're pregnant?"

"I don't know! The condom must've broke!"

"You're part of my imagination! Summon yourself an abortion!"

"I'm also your morality! I can't harm others, Thomas!"

Nobody knew until then, but Patton wasn't the only one who had dreams of being a father. Logan still considered himself new to being in a relationship, so there were times were he would overthink. However, one thing that kept Logan from panicking so much was the idea of having a future with Patton; a future that could include looking at a little Side that could have his eyes and cheeks and the smile of Patton's that made the teacher fall in love. When that dream was shattered, however, he didn't know who to direct his anger to: on one hand, Remus took control the first time, but on the other hand, Thomas could've stopped at any time afterwards while he knew why his actions were wrong. He couldn't bring himself to release his frustrations when he figured he would just be ignored by the one he warned, so he manifested a bar in the Imagination where he could drown his sorrows.

When everyone else came to help with Patton's pregnancy, they made it perfectly clear that they were in no way interested in helping Thomas throughout the months. Even if their actions caused Thomas to be less than productive, all they cared about was helping Patton instead of the one who allowed the mistake to build up. He had heard that Logan was around to help occasionally, but was nowhere to be found when he wanted to talk to the teacher.

After a few months, Patton and Thomas expressed that they wanted to both see Logan. When they made it to the bar, Logan was almost able to smile upon seeing Patton first, but stopped himself upon seeing Thomas next. He knew he couldn't vanish since Thomas would just chase him if he did.

"Um...Logan, I understand you're still upset about the pregnancy. Care to talk about it?" Thomas awkwardly stated.

Logan just glared at Thomas and tried to pick up another bottle to no avail. He would've thought nothing of it if not for the fact that he picked up the bottle with no problem a minute ago.

"What did you do?"

"Well, we needed to talk, so I thought it would be a start if you stopped drinking."

Logan was clearly upset that Thomas chose months too late to be responsible no matter his efforts and expressed it by throwing the bottle at Thomas's head.

Nobody expected Patton to be pregnant without problems. As much as Patton knew he was at fault for what happened, he wanted to make things right with Logan. Since they all had the same genetics, Patton decided it might be a good idea for Logan to be the second father to the little Side if he wasn't too mad at Patton. He figured that Thomas could still be involved in the little one's life since the child would be as much of a part of Thomas as Thomas would be a part of them. However, life can be cruel to those who don't deserve it.

Thomas received a message to meet Patton at the Imagination. Other beings that took Thomas form informed him of Patton's most recent appointment and, as he saw Patton crying while hugging himself, he knew that he didn't need to ask further questions.

Things weren't better for anybody. The appointment made things worse for Patton. Even though all the Sides still saw each other as a family, they couldn't really look Thomas in the eye and make the same claim, not even Remus. Taking after his appearance even made them sick to their stomachs. As they made it to the Imagination and looked up at the sky to await their uncertain next chapter, Thomas tried to summon them all with the hopes of using his imagination to undo his mess. When everyone was summoned, something seemed wrong to Thomas: their roles were all present, but they, somehow weren't them. When Logic described them as the replacements after the original Sides...retired, Thomas felt tears develop in his eyes.

Something compelled him to go to a spot in the Imagination where he saw a collection of flowers that were red, yellow, green, dark blue, cyan, and purple. Upon seeing the flowers, he dropped to his knees and sobbed wishing he could undo everything.
