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.
This popped up into my head after seeing a headcanon by dontfeeddaelves and I just had to type it up. This broke my feels. Just warning you.
Arthur had to watch as his arm pushed his best friend off the edge of the cliff. He felt everything when Mystery grabbed his arm, biting and ripping it off. The blonde screamed in agony as blood, his blood pooled underneath him. He heard Vivi screaming and tried to move to the edge to see what was going on but blacked out.
When he woke the first time, it was to people trying to get him to respond. He just kept trying to ask where his friends were. He saw a flash of purple and blue pass by and looked over, seeing Lewis and Vivi, followed by Mystery, getting into a different ambulance. The blonde passed back out.
The next time he woke was to hushed words not too far away. He opened his eyes and they stopped. He looked over and saw his friends. He went to say something, but they glared at him with such hatred, he went quiet.
“Traitor.” Lewis glared. Arthur couldn’t believe he was alive. He thought he lost his best friend. “When we leave the hospital your stuff is going back to your Uncle’s.” It wasn’t a threat, it was a promise. Arthur looked to Vivi and she just snubbed him.
The blonde looked to his lap, turning onto his good side so he faced away from the two while tears ran down his face. It went this way every time he tried to talk. It was difficult and quickly began to depress him. He would lay there and not move, not look at Lewis.
One day a nurse came in and asked Arthur to please move from his bed so she could change his sheets. The blonde didn’t want to, but relented and slowly pushed himself up. His hold on the bed railing slipped and he fell, hearing Lewis’ laugh. It broke Arthur’s heart more. The area where his arm used to be ached and he gave a faint cry of pain. The nurse looked to him and knelt down.
“Where does it hurt?” She asked. He whined and tried to speak.
“A-Arm… The one that’s gone..” He whined. She gave a knowing look.
“Those are phantom pains. It happens to everyone who loses a limb.” She stood up and finished remaking his bed, helping him onto it. The nurse left the room, leaving him with Lewis again.
“You deserve worse pain asshole.” Lewis glared. Arthur just looked away, not responding when Vivi came in or when a nurse came in to bring Lewis and Arthur food.
He didn’t sleep well that night, or any other nights. It hurt and he had too many nightmares. He had a lot more breakdowns and mental meltdowns, all the while hearing Lewis’ snide comments. Finally a month went by and the two were taken to physical therapy to regain full mobility.
While Lewis was relearning to walk, they gave Arthur a prosthetic. He just screamed and pulled at it until they took it off and took him back to his room.
Lewis began to notice how skinny the blonde was, how tired he looked, how little he ate and responded, how he never slept anymore. And worse yet, how unlike himself he was. It wasn’t just that he was quiet or didn’t respond, it was that he never tried to talk to them anymore, never even looked for Lance, who had stopped coming too once Vivi told him what had happened. That had to be hard, Lewis had visitors, Arthur just laid there as everyone ignored him or glared at him. Lewis’ mother even went off on Arthur and that sent a pain through Lewis.
Arthur was completely alone and had been broken down by E V E R Y O N E. He looked to the catatonic blonde and cleared his throat.
“Hey…. Arthur? You gonna eat your jello?” He asked slowly. Arthur didn’t even flinch and that terrified him. Arthur at least used to flinch when he’d talk to him, though his words since coming to the hospital had been horrid.
Lewis would keep trying throughout the day until he was taken to physical therapy. They had momentarily given up Arthur’s physical therapy, they didn’t want to stress him out.
A few days passed like this until Vivi came back. She saw the skeletal like Arthur and stopped dead in her tracks. She couldn’t stop the stab of worry in her heart or the tears that gathered in her eyes. “Arthur…” She said, going over to the blonde. Lewis didn’t try to stop her, he was worried too. Vivi gently laid her hand on Arthur’s shoulder. The blonde did nothing. “Hey… Come on. I brought Mystery.” The dog sat on Lewis’ bed, his eyes watching as Arthur did nothing. After a few minutes of trying to get the blonde to do anything but stare at his lap, Mystery did something he wished he wouldn’t have to. He spoke up.
“He was telling the truth, you know.” Vivi and Lewis both snapped their heads in his direction. “I was hoping you would come to believe him, what with us hunting ghosts and demons. Arthur wasn’t lying about a demon making him push Lewis.”
Lewis looked to Arthur and pain filled his chest. It was guilt. He got up with his crutches and went to Arthur, sitting on the bed and hugging him close as tears rolled down his eyes. The blonde still didn’t react, limp in his arms. The only signal he was alive was his quiet breathing.
the last part of this comic.. 67 COMIC PIECES GOOD GOD!
my hand hurts and it was laaaaate. XD Lance’s anger tends to die down quickly, he might’ve been pissed, but he wouldn’t beat the living daylights outta mako for that. XD He just wants his nephew to be the one to decide his destiny.
It’s time for an MSA Super Sketch Dump post! A few of these sketches are rough draws for pieces that are being further developed/have already been developed and completed, but most of them are just for practice.
So @ozhawkauthor, I may have… taken your birthday prompts and sorted them into categories so that one could write a fic using all of them. I’m thinking it sounds very Darcy Lewis/Lance Hunter. There’s a meet-cute, he trains her and takes her on a “fake date” mission, they date, have sex, fight, make up, and happy ending. Ugh but my life is ridiculously busy for the next month. So it may never happen. But I thought you’d like the idea!
