PLEASE SO NOT REBLOG!! THIS POST IS PRONE TO CHANGING AND I DO NOT WANT DATED VERSIONS OF THIS ON THIS SITE! IF YOU WANT TO SHARE IT JUST LINK IT IN A POST AND SHARE THAT WAY!
This post is about some videos I make on my youtube channel with the help of others. I call this whole thing the FCAM series, which stands for FNF Corruption AU MAP series (or if you want the long version, Friday Night Funkin’ Corruption Alternate Universe Multiple Animator Project Series).
It all started with this one video, simply because I’d found Phantom Fear’s content and wanted to make a small animation for it as fanart. Never did I think it would blow up as much as it did, but I still asked people if they wanted a(n) MAP made out of it. They said yes, so work got started on it. Phantom Fear supported the project and we were off!
The basics of the AU:
While it slightly follows Phantom Fear’s Corruption AU, there are several differences, especially based on who gets corrupted, when, how, and more. The corruption spreads by song and physical touch, but in this au there are also magic cures. These include:
Memories: If the corrupted is given enough/overwhelmed with previous memories, they can fight back against the corruption. However this is only a temporary solution, as the corruption is not entirely dispelled from their body. Only really strong users can use this method alone to keep the corruption away.
Potions: Cures the corruption once per. Can be used over and over, though there may be issues with overdosing and using it too many times in a row. Recipes are varied and scattered through only a small number of magic books.
Spells: Can be used to cure the corruption or provide full immunity to all corruption, but it needs a skilled caster to do so.
(Will be kept under the cut because it is long, not to mention basic story spoilers. The characters that are in the link below as well also contain spoilers.)
Discord: Set some time after the corruption started, and takes place during days/nights affected with red fog and darkened/reddened skies. Really just a montage of things being done during the corruption with less consistency than the others. Throughout it though, Pico’s trying to combat the Corruption that an empowered Lemon Demon has caused thanks to a magic crown he’s obtained. In the end, he manages to get Boyfriend to come to his senses as he plans on taking on Lemon Demon’s whole army of corrupted with other non-corrupted.
The Future: It’s been some time after the Discord MAP, and it is now late noon/early night. Pico and Boyfriend have managed to rescue some of their comrades, but some of them are still infected. Skid and Pump look for a book about the corruption and locate it, while the others fight off the corrupted army. Skid and Pump attempt to make it back to the group with their findings, only to find that the group has beaten Lemon Demon and Pico is ready to fire at them. Skid and Pump, having seen only the good side to most demon/monster creatures, run to Lemon Demon’s defense while he is weak, asking Pico to spare him. Pico does, but Lemon Demon uses it as a chance to ambush! Boyfriend tries to stop them, but he is knocked aside as Lemon Demon then stabs/attacks Pico with a LOT of corruption energy. Boyfriend gets up and knocks Lemon Demon further away with his mic, but the damage has already been done. Lemon Demon flees the scene as a large corruption shockwave ripples through the area and Boyfriend and co are knocked back. As they look up, they find a corrupted monster standing in front of them.
Magic: There’s an unspoken timeskip since The Future MAP, and in that time, Boyfriend and Girlfriend have fled the FNF area to seek assistance. The MAP is supposed to be set in nighttime, though because of lack of communication, animators have shown different times of day. Skid and Pump are still hidden in there, and Daddy Dearest and Mommy Must Murder are off trying to find Lemon Demon after they fled. Boyfriend (prior to the events of the MAP, though it is shown as well) was given a magic mic by Tankman that allows him to summon the spirits of Newgrounds Characters (or the characters themselves) to help him. As he sings more, a meter charges up, and it also fills when the spirits help him. With this new weapon, Boyfriend and Girlfriend go to the Newgrounds area to get help. Skid and Pump meanwhile, try to locate the two. Despite the monster’s large size, Boyfriend cannot find it. He locates a school however, and decides to see if he can summon more help there. As he starts up however, the monster hears them and heads over, attacking the place upon arrival. Boyfriend gets the monster to follow him into the school when the Newgrounds characters and Girlfriend fail to bring the monster down. However, this is no ordinary school….it’s Pico’s school. The monster chases boyfriend down the halls and around corners, but Boyfriend manages to lose him and spots a door. He goes through it and enters the room that Pico previously fought Cassandra in (not an au thing, it’s part of the original Pico’s School game), and finds a picture on the ground. He goes down the steps to investigate it, but is heard by the monster. Boyfriend looks at the picture and sees that the monster had 2 past friends, and attempts to summon them with his mic. However, the monster interrupts this, flings Boyfriend against the wall/floor, and destroys his mic by stepping on it. The monster picks Boyfriend up to kill him, but Girlfriend rushes in with all the Newgrounds characters, who further power Boyfriend’s meter up enough to unleash his special weapon: a magic yell similar to Splatoon’s “Killer Wail”. He blasts the monster with it, and the monster drops him. The Newgrounds characters then bombard the monster with magic, and the monster becomes flooded with old memories they used to have. They are defeated, and brought back to their normal self. Boyfriend also brings their 2 past friends over to them, and the Newgrounds characters hug it out as Skid and Pump arrive to reveal that a cure to the corruption is indeed, memories. Meanwhile, DD and MMM are still looking for Lemon Demon, who has bandaged himself up to heal (from Boyfriend’s mic attack in The Future MAP). Lemon Demon hopes he isn’t caught by them, but runs into someone else…
The Phoenix: This arc takes place a little bit during but also after Magic, and also somewhere in the daytime like sunrise to early noon. Once the monster from the “Magic” MAP is saved, Boyfriend, Girlfriend, Pico, and others try to locate the city DD and MMM went to to locate Lemon Demon. Lemon Demon has recovered from his injuries and is ready to attack again, but with the assistance of a new figure labeled “The Phoenix”, the FNF characters find him and initiate a fight. Skid and Pump finally locate the group, but BF warns them to get out and make the cure before Lemon Demon can know they’re there. They then start fighting Lemon Demon, and are nearly winning until Lemon Demon knocks them down with their power. “The Phoenix” then starts overwriting some code files (since the people are from a game and all) and give the group the power they need to defeat and capture Lemon Demon. Lemon Demon is thrown into a magic cage so he can’t get out, and the others are supposedly cured of their corruption (though only BF is shown drinking the potion).
It isn’t shown, but after The Phoenix MAP, the other corrupted citizens/whoever are cured with the potion.
