Healing What Has Been Broken
(Picture and characters do not belong to me, they belong to their respectful owners.)
Error is the destroyer, Ink is the creator. Both Gods in their own right.
They are the balance in their part of the Multiverse, making sure that neither goes to far and makes their Multiverse fall apart at the seams.
If Error was able to destroy all the AU's, then there would be nothing left. The universe that they live in would just cease to exist with nothing to fill it up. That is why Ink is needed, to make sure that there is something to fill in those blank spaces, to make sure that there is life.
If Ink was able to continue to create with no one to stop him or oppose him, then the AU's would collide and destroy one another. The universe would crumble and decay as they touch, as there is no more room to grow in. That is why Error is needed, to make sure that the AU's don't collide and kill one another, to make sure that there is room to grow in.
Error knew this well, even with his spotty and vague memories.
Ink did not.
Error was broken and tired. He had nothing to live for in the end. He had no friends, no love to call his own, no family. No one wanted him around. He called for help, for anyone to save him from his own madness.
But no one came.
They left him in the Anti-Void, for the screams to over take him.
So Error let go. He fell into the void to be scattered across time and space. No one would miss him.
But he did not scatter, he traveled through time and space.
Error landed in a new Multiverse. One where there was no Error.
All AU's lived in balance in this universe. There was no creator who could not control himself and just create more and more. There was no destroyer who had to destroy.
By the time Error's universe knew what they did wrong and the truth of the matter, their universe was falling apart and they had to get back Error to do his job. But they hit a big roadblock when they finally found Error.
This universe would not let Error go without a fight.
