Chapter Idea: Five Nights At Freddy's
New Killer: The Attraction
William Afton started his restaurant with only one mascot, Fredbear. One of those bears people would see at a circus, it inspired him, but in William’s mind, Fredbear was an icon like no other. And so it came to be that Fredbear’s Family Diner opened and was a massive hit with the locals. The money was great for William, his wife, and his three kids. But something felt wrong, something told William that the restaurant needed… more.
And so, with time at his side, William created Spring Bonnie, a bunny who celebrated Springtime, William’s first original creation. This suit is one he wears himself, while a devoted employee wears the Fredbear costume. While William wears the suit, his wife hosts the restaurant and ensures the parties go well. It was a paradise to him. But then, the bad days started, and they didn’t start to go.
One morning, he reads the local newspaper, seeing a new restaurant called “Chica’s Party World” became another hit among the locals. Upon seeing it, William knew he needed to talk with the owner, Fredbear’s was falling apart and if he wanted any chance to keep himself in business, he needed to make an educated risk.
William enters the restaurant and sees mascots singing on stage with strange costumes, ones that were far too big to fit an average person. The owner recognizes William immediately and sits them both down for a conversation. The owner’s name is Henry Emily, he also has a wife and daughter of his own, so he understood William’s position. After a few weeks of working through ideas, they both came up with Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza.
They worked well over a few short years, Henry had shown him that they could use animatronics to act as mascots instead of people and implemented them into Fredbear and Spring Bonnie. These mascots, however, Henry ensured these could still be worn, noting William’s love to act in front of the children and make them laugh. The designs were simple, yet dangerous if the proper precautions weren’t taken.
These implements would allow the costumes to be worn by people, or perform as animatronics. At first, William admired Henry’s work and studied under him. In honor of the man who had given Henry the inspiration, these suits were named Springlocks, after William’s creation. Then, the incident happened. William’s son had died from a springlock failure. William’s eldest was trying to mess with his little brother and ended up killing him in Fredbear’s mouth.
William became distraught, turning to alcohol for comfort and away from his family due to guilt. In William’s mind, he blames himself, he was the reason those suits were made. Soon after, he became divorced and Henry came to visit him, telling William he was sorry and tried to take the blame for the incident. William ignored his old friend, taking another sip of whiskey.
But Henry would grow to regret his words, because soon, William started to believe them. Afton became angry with Henry, going as far as to plan his death. But Afton knew he couldn’t do it, he didn’t have to will. But with enough whiskey, a drunken Afton convinced himself he could. He got in his car and drove over to Freddy Fazbears, in hopes of finding Henry, but he found someone better.
Outside, he sees little Charlie, Henry’s daughter. Usually, she would be inside, playing with Henry’s Security Puppet, but today? She’s outside, crying on her own in the storm. Afton laughs to himself, Henry took his son, now he will take Henry’s daughter, the perfect revenge. Afton goes up to Charlie and convinces her to go with him to the back alley, so he could take her in through the back. Why shouldn’t she trust him, after all, he’s a friend of her father.
Now out of sight, Afton throws her against the wall and strangles her. Afton squeezes his hands, tighter and tighter until a crack. Charlie falls limp and Afton stands back. He looks at her and smiles, he feels good. Really good. He needs to do this again.
Within a few days, the police leave Freddy Fazbears, making it another prime target for Afton’s revenge. This restaurant, this wasn’t William’s, this was a trick of Henry’s to make him believe he had been a part of it. Afton goes in through the back and walks into the safe room. To his surprise, he finds the Spring Bonnie suit sitting against the wall. The fur of the suit is beginning to mold, but it still looks in fair condition, Afton gains an idea.
Wearing Spring Bonnie, Afton lures the children, one by one into the safe room. Rarely anyone goes in, and it’ll be a while until they check the security footage of the restaurant, so Afton left the building, hesitant to leave his creation behind.
Afton revels in his act of defiance of Henry. He never should’ve signed that contract with William, and Afton would make him regret it. The newspaper that came in the morning thrilled Afton. It documented him leading the kids into the safe room and then… and then they disappeared, not killed? That can’t be right. Did they not go into the saferoom, why wouldn’t they?
The police barge into his house, not to his surprise, he expected to be arrested, not for kidnapping though. Surprisingly, the court didn’t have enough evidence to convict him of being a killer or a kidnapper. The evidence was circumstantial due to the cameras being unable to catch his face.
Afton’s curiosity took over him, he has to go back. If he finds their bodies in the safe room, then he’s truly a genius, unless someone moved them. He thought to Henry, no, it can’t be him, he’s too soft, he wouldn’t dare let ANYONE get hurt and get away with it, much less a child. Afton opens the safe room, but nothing. No bodies or even evidence that they were there to begin with.
Soon enough, Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza closes, but after some time, Henry tries again, opening the restaurant with newer and improved animatronics. But when Afton came to Henry to discuss the restaurant, Henry assaulted Afton, accusing him of being the cause of the incident. Even though he took pride in his work, Afton refuted the claim and Henry ensured every employee knew Afton wasn’t their boss anymore. But Afton didn’t mind, his plan involved being hidden away.
And so, Afton took the role of a night security guard, and all in one night, Afton kills five other kids. With the new animatronics tampered with and the cameras deactivated, they’d have no clue as to who did this. Now, he has to stay. He has to find out if someone hides the bodies if Henry really isn’t who Afton expected him to be.
As the hours passed, Afton noticed Freddy was moving, not the new plastic one, but the old one. The one he and Henry had created together, that Freddy was moving. But as Afton drew closer, he saw that Freddy wasn’t just moving, he was following Henry’s Security Puppet. Now he has to get closer, and as he does, Freddy sees him and recoils. The animatronic then turns off, is it afraid of him? Afton’s curiosity only grew with this discovery, he had to try again, but this time, a place he could control the experiment personally without intervention.
Thus, Circus Baby’s Party and Rental Service opened to the public. The animatronics were somewhat inspired by Freddy and his gang, but two of them were made to be actor-like characters. His inspiration is complete, but now it’s simply a cover. Afton ensured these models were completely his own making and were able to isolate and kill children for research. He remembers the first party distinctly, knowing his daughter was the one taken and killed. Quite an act of karma, but it’s the research he’s after, and she is a fine sacrifice.
Due to the second incident, the rental service closes, and Afton begins to study the animatronic’s behavior with the victim’s souls. Then, Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza reopened, though it became much smaller and more closely resembling Fredbear’s. Afton became inclined to kill again, but his studies were his new obsession. However, he couldn’t miss the opportunity to study those animatronics without any prying eyes, and so he waited for the restaurant to close.
Once it did, the building was left abandoned for a short time, this was Afton’s window. He entered the old pizzeria and crept to the safe room Henry always added. Inside, Afton finds his beloved creation. He places a hand on the molded head of Spring Bonnie but puts away the idea to put it on. It was old and far too unsafe to be worn again.
A set of footsteps puts Afton on edge and takes a fire axe off the wall for protection. He stands in front of the doorway to the room with the axe raised above his head. Freddy Fazbear comes around the corner and stops. Afton freezes with fear, but the animatronic doesn’t do anything. It looks right at him, no, right through him. Almost as if the safe room didn’t exist for it. Freddy turns around and begins to leave, but Afton needs the parts.
Afton swings the axe down on the animatronic, dismembering it until it lay in pieces on the tiled floor. Then, along came the purple Bonnie, after him, Chica, and after her, Foxy. After destroying all of them, Afton begins to rummage through the parts, not really knowing what to do with them. That’s until he hears another set of footsteps, Afton looks around, that shouldn’t be possible, no one else should be here. There certainly weren’t any other animatronics.
Without much choice, Afton retreats back to the safe room. He closes the door and peaks through the slits of the window. Outside he sees… a child. Then, they look at him, not at the door, at HIM. A sense of fear fills Afton as the child comes closer. Afton backs away from the door and the child walks through the metal door.
Afton looks into their dead eyes, and more children follow the first. They’re not just children, they’re the children he killed. The first spirit chases him, while the others stand at the door, keeping him from leaving. He hurries to one side of the room, knowing he can’t keep this up forever until it hits him. These are the ones he killed in the suit, they might be afraid of him.
He bolts past the spirit again and quickly pulls the suit over him, not following the proper care required for the springlocks. After pulling the head on, he looks at the spirits again, now they look in horror. Afton takes a breath and begins to laugh. Pathetic, even dead they feared him. He laughed and laughed, not caring about anything else the world had in it until a drop of water hits his nose.
He froze and stiffened every muscle in his body. The springlocks, he may have gotten lucky while putting the suit on, but- Afton began to scream in agony as the endoskeleton began to force itself into his body. The chest of the endoskeleton penetrates his lungs, and the screaming stops. Afton looks at the spirits, the looks of horror still on their faces, they knew, they knew. The head of the endoskeleton shoves its head into Afton’s skull and everything goes black.
In what feels like forever, light fills Afton’s eyes again. But he can’t move, and he’s still in agony. Using his eyes, Afton looks over his body inside Spring Bonnie, the twisted flesh, the shattered bone, and the molded fur. Looking about the room, Afton noted that the spirits were gone.
Days later, or what felt like days, Afton hears a set of footsteps, and suddenly, Henry stands in front of him. Henry runs away, and Afton tries crying out to his old friend. Save me. Then, something else fills the building, a banging sound. Afton manages to move his head to the side and sees Henry boarding up the Safe Room.
Henry. Afton says quietly. It sounds nothing like him anymore, the machine is speaking now in its own distorted voice. Henry! He says again, this time getting his attention. All Afton receives is a stern look. HENRY!

New Survivor: Henry Emily
Henry Emily graduated as an engineer but didn’t really know where his life was going. He went to a small town and met a woman and had a daughter. It didn’t take long for Henry to realize he was wasting his degree by taking typical low-wage jobs. Eventually, Fredbear’s Family Diner opened and Henry became fascinated. The joy of the children in the restaurant made him smile like nothing before, and so he took it upon himself to do what William Afton had done before him.
It took him weeks to perfect the animatronics, but eventually, he got them working just as intended. He had a lot of animatronics and a lot of ideas. One day, as Henry was thinking, his wife came in and jokingly called him a chicken for not making a decision for so long. Henry couldn’t help but make the main animatronic a Chicken. Once he introduced her to Chica, they both had a wonderful laugh, even Charlie, his only daughter, found it funny.
But with his family at his side, they were all able to come up with Chica’s Party World. Chica would be the host, using Henry’s wife’s voice, greeting guests, and making introductions to the Musical Melodies. This band consisted of Orville Elephant, Happy Frog, Pigpatch, Mr. Hippo, and Ned Bear, a clear inspiration from Fredbear. The Musical Melodies’ voices were slightly disliked by the public, eventually leading to the name ‘Mediocre’ Melodies. Henry just hoped they didn’t find out he was the one who voiced those animatronics.
One day, William walked into Chica’s Party World unannounced. The moment Henry saw him, he knew William was here to see him. So, Henry introduced himself and took him to a table to talk. To Henry’s dismay, Fredbear’s was failing because his business was thriving. But, thankfully, William was willing to converge their businesses to form a company that brought joy to children, not just in the town, but all over the country, maybe even the world.
Henry jumped on the opportunity and soon after, signed a contract with William. They knew they wanted to contribute their own characters to this new restaurant, Henry chose Chica and William chose Spring Bonnie. After a while, they both took notice that their restaurants both had bears, Ned and Fred, so they decided to make the main attraction a bear as well, introducing Freddy Fazbear.
Henry had to completely remodel Spring Bonnie into just Bonnie the Bunny, the addition of ‘Spring’ was fine if it was part of a duo, but they needed to have Freddy be a ‘main’ attraction. William noticed this and asked if the color could change as well, as a way to make each character different. When asked if he had a preference, William chose purple.
There weren’t very many places to put the new restaurant, but Henry gladly gave up his lot, not wanting to get rid of Fredbear’s just yet. William had asked Henry if he could remodel the suits of Fredbear’s so they would look more similar to Henry’s modern models. Henry accepted the request and made the Springlock suits. The springlocks are very dangerous if handled without the proper care and Henry was very aware of the dangers.
After introducing the new suits to William, he immediately informed his employee to stop wearing the suits, and for a while, William made sure he was the only one to wear them. Once William became comfortable with the springlocks, and better learned their design, he began to teach his employee how to use the suits safely and to reach out to him if anything went wrong.
Then, the incident happened. Henry wasn’t sure how, but one of the mascots killed William’s youngest son. William fell to despair, and as a way to try and cheer him up, Henry opened Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, believing that he could reignite the spark that caused William to bring joy to children once again. But it didn’t work.
So, Henry left William with the space he needed and began to make more features to the restaurant. He made a new animatronic, Foxy, then he made a side stage for him. Updated the building from time to time and eventually demolished Fredbear’s Family Diner. Though Henry made sure to keep the Spring Bonnie suit for William, he’d appreciate that.
One time while scouring the building, he noticed Charlie was being bullied. He scared them off, but Charlie didn’t say anything about them, she was just trying to help another kid they were mocking. Concerned by this, Henry made a Security Puppet, as a means to ensure Charlie was safe while he wasn’t paying attention. Charlie, however, would be his security measure to protect the other kids, he joked with her.
After William became divorced, Henry knew he had to go speak with him. Now, he was alone, Henry needed to let him know that he was there. He apologized to William, taking the blame of the incident upon himself entirely. But William didn’t react, he was cold, emotionless with a bottle in his hand.
But as tragedy struck his friend, it struck Henry as well. Charlie was found dead outside of Freddy’s with the Puppet laying on top of her. Henry could now understand the pain William was going through, and soon his own wife ended her life. The losses became nearly unbearable, but Henry soon moved on and made a goal to ensure this wouldn’t happen again.
But before he could do anything, five children disappeared at Freddy’s, causing an immediate and thorough investigation. Henry gave the police access to everything in the restaurant and even searched with them, giving details on camera positions and where one would need to be in order to avoid them. But none of it mattered, after checking the cameras, there was clear footage of the Spring Bonnie mascot taking the kids into the safe room.
The movement was careless, yet fixed. Henry then had a suspicion about William, but he wouldn’t do this, surely. But he was the only one who knew how unless it was the employee William had taught, but they were already out of town. It had to be William.
Henry informed the police of this, and William was taken into custody. After a trial, William was found innocent, there wasn’t enough evidence, but Henry knew it was him, there wasn’t a doubt in his mind. William left and did his own thing, but Henry was angry, he knew William took those kids. And as the bills piled up on his desk, Henry decided to reopen Freddy’s, this time with updated animatronics.
These animatronics have been fitted with a criminal database in order to recognize and halt criminals, Henry even made sure to add William to that list. To add to security, Henry ensured that these animatronics were able to walk around, he explained it as a means to help the kids enjoy their parties to the concerned parents. A few days after reopening, William comes to see Henry.
Henry is enraged at the sight of him, and assaults William. He shouts at him, blaming him for the disappearances, and even Charlie’s death. William denied everything, but Henry wouldn’t believe it. He went to his employees and told them William wasn’t allowed in the new Pizzeria.
Then, a set of murders, all of them were strangled, just like Charlie. Apparently, it was the new security guard who did it, but the name was fake. And no one saw their face for long enough to recognize it again. Though, a detail the janitor made of the security guard was that they were seen moving the Spring Bonnie mascot in the safe room. William, it had to be. But there wasn’t actual evidence.
After a few more months, the pizzeria closed. Henry was losing money, but he made one last try, not to profit or make kids happy, but to catch William in the act. Henry had thrown away the new animatronics and reinstated the older models. He shrunk the building size and reduced the quality in the cameras. This time, he didn’t hire many people, to ensure the restaurant was understaffed. To William, it would look like an opportunity like no other. But Henry, it would be the perfect trap.
The memories of Henry’s life before this, to bring joy and happiness to families across the world. That was his dream, but now, it’s to catch William, to stop him from doing it anywhere else. It’s why this will be his last stand. Henry loosens the springlocks on the Spring Bonnie suit, it was his hope that William would get cocky enough to wear it while he killed. This was his trap, the Springtrap.
