Past Laurent becomes more agreeable and stops actively trying to kill Damen though he continues to show his claws and Damen continues to be helplessly charmed. Laurent begins taking swordfighting lessons from the man he’s intending to fight; this makes sense in his own head, how better to prepare? And he has a discrepancy now, in his head, between Damen (who he has met here in the future), and Damianos (who killed his brother). If he spoke of this to Damen, Damen would tell him he is one and the same, but Laurent does not speak of it.
At this point Klaus believes that he will never see his siblings again. He will never see his daughter again. And in all those thoughts there is one more. More. He still dreams of the However Long it Takes. He still waits. The world is falling in pieces around him and the end of a thousand years of promise and he writes to Caroline...However Long it Takes. Someone hold me. This is too much. This is not complicated. This is how I die!
And after everything. AFTER EVERYTHING. After the five year imprisonment. After losing his daughter potentially forever. After losing his siblings. After losing his always and forever. After leaving NOLA. After being alone. Klaus Mikaelson sat down and wrote THAT letter to Caroline. His mind wondered back to her. More so after EVERYTHING and all HIS PAIN he signed …yours…HOWEVER LONG IT TAKES. He wrote that he hoped to see her again. To say how he dreamed of how her life would get. I’m DEAD!
'we should try to get some sleep,’ he said. ‘tomorrow i hope to take us as far as grey lake.’ ‘good,’ fire said, ‘because i want a bath.’ brigan threw his head back and smiled at the sky. ‘well said, lady. the world may be falling to pieces, but at least the lot of us can have a bath.’
Cheery Advertisment Lady Voice™:
Just when you thought everything was Okay®, could it be, Self Hatred® rears its ugly head once again!
Me, on-screen, jovial music playing softly in the background:
*Peeling my skin from under my eyes, not a thin layer but clay-like masses of the thin flesh laying upon my skull, which surprisingly is not visible as I claw the mass that makes up my lower eye area and cheeks away. I wail in pain, but not initially; not until the salty tears that come in the same direction as the flesh begin to drip in the wounds, blood not flushing them out so they sting. My silent tears turn into sobbing, and I fall upon the ground, pieces of flesh cohere to the lower parts of my fingers where they meet.*
The Female Voice:
*takes a rather unsurprising incarnation and is presented, looking upon my heaving form for a short while, no obvious emotion on her pretty face, light brown hair neatly arranged in a ponytail, little bits of hair pulled out on both sides framing her feminine, oval face. She looks back up at the camera, smiling.* KYS Inc.™ now has a solution! (The Frame switches, but the female's voice remains, word reiterating the woman's words flash across the screen around the advertised product) All new razor blades, now sharper than ever, so your death may be even quicker. Don't waste your time crying, thrashing around on the ground (the shot returns to me. I have sat up, and now have a blade in my hand), kill yourself today!
I, blade in hand as the last notes of the advertisment's soundtrack play:
*look up toward the sky and press the blade into my wrist, blood spurting up like in a film. The advertisement ends*
The first part of my OP x GF universe swap stuff. I put the most effort into these wanted posters so I figured I’d post them on their own. I don’t know how many of my followers like both shows but either way this is entirely self indulgent on my part haha.
Background info if anyone’s interested because I’m a giant nerd:
