GUYS I JUST HAD AN IDEA
You know how Mick and Len keep telling their younger selves to ‘do better, be better’
Jax told his dad to keep his head low
All of them are being raised by Mary Poppins pretty much
What if when all this is said and done and they return to 2016, they’ve altered the timeline so much it’s no longer THEIR timeline
What if they get back and Jaxs father is still alive
What if they get back and Leonard or Lisa are mayor
Guys, what if they create earth 2
So we all know that Len’s mum left when he was little, before Lisa was born (because they have different mums) But what if she didn’t leave what if it was Kendra, and it was just that Savage got to her when he was little.
Okay so let’s say she’s with Lewis because at this point in time he’s actually an alright guy. She hasn’t met Carter yet (or has but she thought he was just some weird crazy guy) and then one night she finds out that Lewis, while not working as a cop, has been rocking that criminal lifestyle and she doesn’t want that for her son and so plans to leave. But that night, what if when she goes out to get the money and supplies she needs for them to leave, Savage finds her and Len never hears from her again.
So then cut to Legends and Len can’t help but like Kendra and he doesn’t know why (he wasn’t old enough to remember how she looked). He can’t help but feel comfortable around her.
Then there’s this one mission where maybe Len is in danger and nearly dies and while he’s on the med bay Kendra just loses it and neither her nor anyone else can figure out why because sure Snart is a part of the team but he’s not that close with anyone yet. But Len is sure somethings up.
Obviously Len would figure it out at some point because he’s clever and it wouldn’t take him long to put it together, he asks Carter about her last self and he tells Len he’s happy she doesn’t remember it, because she was stolen from her son and kept captive for 11 years before managing to kill herself to escape him.
Len works it out, he’s 44 and Kendra is 25. If she went missing when he was 8 and held captive for 11 years Len would’ve been 19 when she died It’s not a coincidence that there’s a 19 year age gap between them.
Len doesn’t tell her because how can he? Eventually he plans to though, but the Oculus happens and he doesn’t get the chance.
It’s only when Kendra watches the place explode that the memories come flooding back to her and she collapses as she realises she just watched another son die, that she lost Leonard again, she had him back and she didn’t even realise it.
I REALLY REALLY apologize for not being around! First my computer crashed and I had to get a new one and now I have a concussion. If you’ve never had a concussion, I should inform you: I’m not even supposed to be using electronics right now because it could really just make my migraines worse, but I really wanted to post this. Also, I did the end like five minutes ago and I have such a headache that I didnt even bother to re-read it, so if it’s awful and sloppy, I’m sorry. HOPE YOU ENJOY!
2: A Ride on the WaveRider
didn’t stop to ask why Jax was passed out in the passenger seat of Professor
Stein’s car. To be honest, I envied him. Because while he slept soundlessly, I
sat in the backseat, constantly rubbing my sweaty hands against my jeans and
staring out the window, anxiously wondering what we were getting ourselves
could easily be some sort of trap to get rid of us. Though, why would anyone
want to get rid of some retired “superhero” like me? I don’t know. But that was
one of the many things that ran through my head during what felt like the
longest car ride of my life. Next to me, sitting in the middle seat, was an old
white box that I hadn’t touched in months. I’m surprised it even made it to the
new apartment with me. Inside the box was what remained of Techna after I
locked her away from Central City.
What am I doing? I wondered as we
strolled along the street. Unfortunately, the professor was an awfully slow
driver. Bringing back Techna? After all
this time? Why? Because a man in a trench-coat told me it was my destiny?
didn’t have much time to talk myself out of it, however. By time I decided the
whole ordeal was probably a bad idea, Professor Stein was already parking his
silver convertible into an empty parking lot by the river. I watched him climb
out before I found the proper feeling in my feet to do the same thing. The wind
wiping the water came up to give us a chilly bite and I tugged my jacket just
slightly tighter against my body. I’ll admit, I panicked just a tad as the
professor looked around at our empty surroundings.
this not it?” He wondered out loud before observing the small piece of paper in
his hands; Rip Hunter had given him directions before we all parted ways.
We both were startled by another voice until we turned around to see whom it
was. Leonard Snart, the man I had met the night before, was strolling up to us
with the rest of them following him as if they were his own little pose. “Looks
like you two made it.”
much larger partner tilted his head in confusion as he peered over at Jax’s
unconscious form, “What’d you do to him?”
didn’t do anything.” The professor stuttered. “H-he must have had something
that didn’t quite agree with him.”
Mick agreed with his deep-set voice and a nod of his head; however, by the odd
gleam in his eyes, I knew he didn’t believe a word of it.
did he lie?” Sara asked, looking around us.
did not, Miss Lance.” We all turned at once to the man in the trench-coat as he
walked up to us, seemingly appearing out of nowhere.
did you just come from?” Ray chuckled, asking the question we were all
smiled almost mischievously, “Well, imagine how suspicious people would be if I
just casually parked my time ship right in the middle of Star City?” He held up
a black box, not much larger than his hand, and pressed one of the small
buttons on it.
couple of the others gasped along with me as the invisibility lifted from the
larger mechanical ship. It was almost as wide as a cruise ship and the silver
glittered in the sunlight as it stood much, much taller than the rest of us.
to the WaveRider.” Rip grinned, before walking backwards towards the ship.
of us hesitated, but I sighed seeing as Professor Stein was not one of them. He
practically followed Rip with a spring in his step. I stepped forward and then
stopped to remember something important and realize my dilemma. I did the next
thing without even thinking.
reached forward and tapped his large shoulder before he could walk any further
from me. I clenched my fist to keep from instinctively flinching as he turned
around and towered over me. He looked down at me with that confused expression
I cursed myself on the inside as my voice stuttered just slightly. Mick wasn’t
scary to say the least, just… Intimidating. I glanced back at Jax who was still
slumped in the passenger seat. “Could you perhaps…. I-I can’t carry him… At
least not on my own…”
glanced over my head before meeting my eyes again. I was prepared for him to
roll his large, brown eyes and walk away, but he shrugged his broad shoulders
and headed for the silver car. I watched him pull Jax out of the convertible
and sling him over his shoulder as if Jax only weighted a feather. It was
he began walking passed me, I remembered to add a quick, “Thanks!”
stopped for a second and turned slightly to look at me once more. His eyes
raked themselves over my face as if he was looking for something and then his
eyes narrowed as if he didn’t find what he was looking for. I shifted slightly
under his gaze, but then watched in surprise as he dropped his fierce gaze to
glance at the floor. He shrugged once more before he continued to walk.
Was that a shy response? I almost
giggled out loud at my new discovery. So,
the large man has a soft side. I’ll keep that in mind.
feet followed his large footsteps into the ship and stopped once I entered
through the door. The humming of the ship was prominent but not annoying,
almost as if it was simply just breathing. All the halls leading to the main
area were lit with bright, blue and white lights that brought the whole thing
more to life. The main room contained a single table in the middle that shone
bright with many screens, and a few seats surrounded it, other than the driver
seat that sat in the very front.
only had a few seconds before Rip was rushing us to sit down and strap in. I
reached over and pulled Jax’s seatbelt over his unconscious frame just as Mick
set him down and then I gripped my own metal seatbelt that I pulled over my
head and braced myself.
glanced back at us over his shoulder before grinning once more. I was beginning
to believe that grin was going to be the death of me as the Waverider hovered
off the ground.
That’s a wrap on Shitty Boyfriends, the new series I directed. It’s produced by the wonderful Lisa Kudrow, Dan Bucatnisky and New Form Digital. I loved working with old collaborators and new ones. This show is going to be a doozy, and I can’t wait for you to see it.
