Oh my God... my story actually has Cognitive animatronics in it... what a coincidence.
But yeah, it’s called Deception of the Mind. Here’s some of the backstory behind the main antagonist though:
Remember the Bite of ‘83, where CC died? Well guess what, William revived him with remnant, but there was a complication. When Elizabeth, as Baby, started converting his spirit to Shadow Freddy, William’s revival of Lucas via remnant interrupted that process, which actually split Lucas’ soul into two halves: one in his own body, and one that manifested as Shadow Freddy. While Shadow Freddy chose to forgive Michael, the human Lucas after his revival has nothing but resentment towards him, though his grudge against Michael for bullying him and causing the Bite wasn’t what pushed him over the edge.
William subjected Lucas to flat-out torture and essentially killed the innocent boy that he used to be. Remember the controlled shocks from SL? Well, imagine William doing that to Lucas. He basically tortured him to the point of brainwashing to believe that his only purpose is to complete his father’s goals for immortality and nothing else, even admitting himself that he plans on committing suicide after this objective has been accomplished because he has no reason to live anymore. He reduced Lucas to nothing but a slave whose only reason for existing is to complete his father’s goals. It’s also why Lucas created the Twisteds 10 years later when he reached age 21; specifically to hunt down and kill Michael.
While his vendetta against his brother is an integral part of Lucas’ characterization as the main antagonist, he wants to kill Michael not just out of hatred, but also because he’s aware of Michael trying to undo their father’s legacy and plans on having the Twisteds kill him before he can interfere any further.
Unfortunately, Michael isn’t the protagonist, but instead Susie’s older sister, Amanda, who Elizabeth kidnapped and brought to Lucas’ testing facility to perform a survival experiment on, so he could test the efficiency of the Twisteds’ A.I. and also test out his new line of Cognitive androids designed to mitigate some of the difficulties that the Twisteds and Funtimes both have when luring and abducting children.
Noice. In my story, William is the scientist trying to make things right, and Henry is the greedy business owner that will do everything in his power to make his restaurant's reputation flourish. Michael, CC, and Elizabeth do not exist here. That's not all though... There's still more.
Huh. Interesting to see their roles somewhat switched.
I considered making Amanda the subject for a virtual reality program... but that would lock me out of the opportunity of introducing the Cognitives as threats... unless I could somehow have the Cognitives be able to create an environment completely in the person’s head? With physicality?
Virtuality reality program? Our stories ARE alike. I'm doing UCEE (Ultimate Children Entertaining Experience), a chip that brings out a very human like quality to the animatronics for maximum entertainment, this includes the ability to smell, taste, touch, hearing and even see. These chips were created by AR requested by Henry. The chips transmit and download brain waves into the animatronics. More on that later. Can't wait to tell you what I got. So, what is this? A Google Docs, actual novel, PDF?
Google Docs. I haven’t finished writing it (because I’m a lazy bum, so it actually might take a while), and I plan to post it on Fanfiction.net.
Anywho, the Cognitives actually have neurological processors that allow them to scan people’s brains and access memories. Then they also use similar mind discs as the Twisteds, only instead of animatronics, they use this to mimic a human’s appearance. Lucas has created three model types: the Cognitive male, the Cognitive female, and the Cognitive child. They also have remnant in them despite not being possessed by anybody, but the remnant specifically its to enhance their abilities considering it’s supernatural abilities. The Cognitives’ remnant basically allows them to extend their disguise to everyone, just in case of witnesses.
An example for what Lucas planned for the Cognitives; the Twisteds and the Funtimes require the children to have some connection to Freddy Fazbear’s, but what about children that have completely no experience with the franchise? The Cognitives could lure an adult away from their child, scan their brain from afar, emit sound waves that give them the appearance of the child’s parent, and then walk off with them and transport them to Lucas and Elizabeth for a new immortality subject. They also work on adults and teenagers too, mostly via seduction, as an adult/teenage target can be lured via disguising as a romantic interest or at least a close friend. But if they don’t have anyone to work with, that’s where the Cognitive child comes in. The Cognitive child can either access a memory of a young family member to disguise themselves as them, or if all else fails, simply call for help to draw them out when hidden away while the Twisteds do the work of capturing them.
In case you haven't heard, Mangle has voice lines in UCN, And I am trying to add them, and you protected the page. DOES THAT MEAN NOTHING TO YOU?! if you can't be bothered to remove it, here are her lines:
"Don't be afraid...Soon you will look just like me--Beautiful!"
"Now I get to play take-apart-and-put-back-together! You won't feel a thing..."
"I wanted to wait just the right moment to drop in!"
"It's so much more fun hanging out in here with you."
"He's here, and always watching, the one you shouldn't have killed."
If it will convince you to add these quotes, I will tell you what UCN Is really about, lorewise. you do seem to care about that sort of thing. If you're wondering how I know, 2 words: Lewis Dawkins, AKA Dawko. Interested?

If you don’t mind, could you please draw my character Lucas Afton for me? He’s CC... as a young adult (I think I’ve mentioned him to you before). I imagine that he wears a lab coat, with a larger version of the shirt he wore as a kid in FNaF 4, and brown pants. Same hairstyle. He also has bandages wrapped around his forehead for... obvious reasons. He’s also very scrawny and underweight. As for his facial expression... maybe either give an empty, blank stare, or a psychotic smile.
(Don’t think that I’ve forgotten, Michael. What you did to me all those years ago...)
For some reason, I imagine that Lucas’ bandages were wrapped around his forehead, beneath his hair. But I suppose it makes more sense for it to look like that. Thanks for drawing him for me!
Fun fact about this crazy boy: He’s the main antagonist of Deception of The Mind, but Shadow Freddy still exists, even though Lucas is alive. This is because William brought him back via injecting remnant into his body, shortly after the Puppet said “I will put you back together” to him. The Puppet began converting his spirit to Shadow Freddy, but was interrupted when William revived his son. As a result, Shadow Freddy is the living embodiment of Lucas’ positive traits, while all of Lucas’ hatred and malevolence remained within his body. Needless to say, Lucas was pissed at Michael when he woke up from his coma. However, it isn’t just the Bite that enrages him; he blames his brother because he’s the reason why he’s split in half, unable to comprehend why he feels broken inside. Not to mention that, as we all know, William isn’t the most loving father, so... I’m sure you can assume how the rest of Lucas’ childhood was for him.
In all honesty, if you let me read this, I'd probably only read it just to read it (entertainment, you know), so if you want criticism, I'd turn to Star. I'll only criticize if I think it's actually bad, but I doubt think it will be.
To tell you the truth, the scope of my story doesn't really have much to offer. Alexa gets kidnapped, Lucas and Elizabeth experiment on her over the course of a week, then she escapes, picking off the animatronics one by one, before the Afton siblings are dispatched.
So don't expect every chapter to be jam-packed with unique events, since most of these are tests.
There is no singular Lefty thread, specifically. You can literally make whatever thread you want, as long as it's not a gender debate, a roleplay, or meant to spread hate.
Just search the forum. Lefty is most likely to be talked about in Theorists Unite, or you can click DISCUSS on the top right, and find a discussion about Lefty there. If you want to, you can make your own thread or discussion.
But just a friendly tip: pretty much all of us know that the Puppet is inside Lefty, and what Lefty was made for, so you may not want to go around telling other people that, unless they actually show that they don't know.
