I’m late but I wanted to help celebrate my boy Lance!
anyways, this is angsty and short and I may carry it over into the other prompts (I think today is supposed to be friends? I’ll see.)
What is a family?
For a long time Lance
had thought it was a blood relation; the woman who birthed you and the man who
raised you, and any siblings that followed after.
But as he grew older,
began to understand more about the world and its workings, he realized that his
definition may have been faulty. Family wasn’t always a mom, a dad, and a
sister or two.
Sometimes it was two
moms, or just one. And other times it was two dads, or none at all. And then,
if one were really lucky, there could be three people who each held the title
And siblings didn’t
always come from the same two people. Sometimes they had a different father, or
a different mother, or none at all that they could remember, until they were
taken in and raised by a loving family.
So I didn’t know this was a THING until yesterday, and so of course I need to join in since…y’know, I’m utterly insane for all things Hey Arnold! And since I didn’t know about it on the first day I’m playing a bit of catch up.
You came early into this world. You were such a wee thing. So frail, so fragile. I feared you wouldn’t make it. But your father… he never doubted. He always said you’d become the strongest of them all. And he was right. You have the heart of a chief and the soul of a dragon. Only you can bring our worlds together. That is who you are, son.
