Random headcanons/AUs that won’t get fics anytime soon. If anyone wants to add on/chime in/create something, feel free.
In the far future, society is divided into social classes- the elite, wealthy citizens of the city, and the mongrel, poor citizens of the slums. The Elite Syndicate, the highest members of the wealthy class, control the government, and are forbidden from any interests and social pursuits that would threaten their work- except for hiring lower-class “pets” to entertain them. After Trott, one of the elite, saves Smith from rival gang members, the chance encounter thrusts Smith into the false utopia of the upper class, and the limitations and laws that control their very existence. The developing relationship tests the societal constraints between the two, and for better or worse, others begin to take notice.
