#arrow#headcanon that thea and moira did this all the time#and when thea was clearing out the mansion she left her mother’s room for last#the bed was the very very last thing she took out#the night before she left town she slept in it#a lonely girl in a bed in an empty room#and she woke up the next morning watching the sun crawl across the ceiling and the sheets still smelled like l’air du temps#which thea never managed to coax moira away from despite years of lectures on how old fashioned it is#and for a second before she woke up all the way she reached out for her mom’s arm because it’s chilly in here and she must be hogging all the blankets or something#and then she remembers and her head starts to pound and her face feels dry and brittle because she’s been crying for so long that her skin feels like it’s about to flake off#and she blinks and hardens her heart and gets up to start her life again#she’s done it before you’d think it’d get easier ( @jaegermighty )
aaaaand now I’m crying.
There’s an abundance of bad things happening right now, and it’s hard not to be sucked into that black hole of sadness, so let’s have a puppy party shall we.
Because, let’s face it, dogs never grow up.
ADDED BONUS, PUPS IN MOTION!!!
First and last dogs are springer spaniels!! Ahhhhh
