““I don’t understand why you’re so afraid of the ocean.” Lance said.
“It can kill me.”
“So can I.”
“You wouldn’t, though. The ocean doesn’t care. We’re just bits of flotsam. It’d bash me against the rocks just as much as it keeps me floating here.”
“It’d do the same to me, though. We’re all just bits of flotsam to it, just like the earth would be a bit of flotsam in the sun, and the sun is nothing but a bit of flotsam in the galaxy- which is nothing but a bit of flotsam in the universe. I’m just as much to the ocean as you are.””
I’ve been working on this for what feels like ages! A while back I read this amazing text post that @thylovelylionheart posted about their head canon for this situation and it is everything I need. [x]
