Gladio: Can we have a serious conversation? Ignis: What is it, Gladio? Gladio: I think I’m messing up at combat. I keep getting distracted. Ignis: What with? Gladio: You. I’m wielding my sword some way, but then I look at you and I’m suddenly swinging to the other side, and…yo, where’re you going? Wait up! Iggy!
Fic: Hole in the Fence (ao3 link) - chapter ¾ Fandom: Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Pairing: Mick Rory/Leonard Snart
Summary: Mick Rory’s life was changed forever by the fire he didn’t escape.
(in which Mick Rory retires, raises goats, and saves the world more than a few times)
“So, did it work?” Mick asks when Len swans in. “I assume since you’re here and not in a secret prison somewhere, it couldn’t have gone that badly.”
“That was a delight,” Len says. He’s beaming like a maniac.
Mick shakes his head in amusement. It’s been a while since he’s seen Len all jumped-up on adrenaline and loving every last second; Len’s heists have tended more towards cautious and controlled recently. This, though, this is classic Len: running on the very edge of danger with a smirk plastered on his face and his heart singing.
It’s good to see.
“So, anyway, I lured him out, no problem,” Len says, throwing himself down on the couch next to Mick, utterly ignoring the papers Mick had been perusing a few minutes earlier. He just did a thing; now he tells Mick about it. It’s a system - their system - and it works. “No, that’s not right; it was a problem. First he didn’t show up to the first time I set something up – the car job thing I told you about –”
“Yes,” Mick says dryly. “I know. You called me right after and complained about it for way too long.”
I’ll never forget all the things you’ve done for us fans.
I’ll never forget your amazing quotes.
I’ll forget your inspiring backstory and your resolve that drived you to work so hard not for yourself but, for people like us.
I may not have known you like most people have yet here I am, crying as I’m typing this. It hurts alot. You worked so hard to get to where you were and you deserved every single bit of praise you got. I guess your existence gave me hope. Hope that I will be able work my way up to glory just as you did. Hope that people will one day appreciate my work and efforts for what they are just like they did yours. To see you gone really hurts me to the core. However, Monty Oum, I promise you this:
I’ll never waver and if I do, I remember what drives me.
I’ll put everything I have into my dreams and goals and make them reality.
I’ll be strong and make a way when there is no way.
I’ll work hard and restlessly to matain my goals.
I’ll be myself and be as selfless as possible and make a lot of friends.
And once I finally reach my dreams I’ll “keep living” and I’ll “keep moving forward” as long as possible. Once I can no longer live, I’ll leave behind a grand legacy that people will remember me for.
Just as you did.
“I believe the human spirit is indomitable. If you endeavor to achieve, it will happen given enough resolve. It may not be immediate and often times you greater dreams is something you will not achieve in your own life time. The effort you put into anything transcends yourself for there is no futility, even in death.”
Truer words were never said, Monty. You’re a prime example of that. Thank you. May you rest in peace.
