Grounders AU is a common trope in The 100 fandom. In canon there were originally two groups, Shaikru, who lived on a space station, called the Ark, orbiting earth, and Grounders, people who lived on the earth's surface after a nuclear apocalypse. Grounder AUs usually takes one of two forms, classic role reversal, where Skaikru characters are reimagined as Grounders, or vice versa, or everyone is a Grounder, in which there was no Ark and all the characters were raised in Grounder society.
