All That Remains of Lance McClain Part 2

Hey all! I’m back with the ‘What Remains of Edith Finch’ AU that no one really asked for but that I’m writing ANYWAY! It’s a bit short, and doesn’t really lead anywhere plot-wise, but this part if more of a build up to the revelation of Lance’s past, which will be explored within the next part. 

Since I finished watching the play through of this beautiful game [and cried thanks v much] I have to ask people to either go play/watch a play through of the game to avoid in game spoilers! It’s really great and I love the mixture of creepiness/melancholy/tragedy that you can find in the game, which my writing probably won’t be able to capture fully so please! Go check it out!

“Does this have anything to do with those letters I saw you reading the other day?” Lance loved Hunk, fiercely, like a brother, but sometimes he desperately wished the other wasn’t so nosy.

Delphi

Delphi  is both an archaeological site and a modern town in Greece on the south-western spur of Mount Parnassus in the valley of Phocis. Delphi was the site of the Delphic oracle, the most important oracle in the classical Greek world, and became a major site for the worship of the god Apollo after he slew Python, a dragon who lived there and protected the navel of the Earth. Pytho  is claimed by some to be the original name of the site in recognition of Python which Apollo defeated. The Homeric Hymn to Delphic Apollo recalled that the ancient name of this site had been Krisa.
