There is something darkly hilarious about Eobard Thawne keeping the Waverider (and Rip) as a miniature toy on his desk.
It says something interesting that Rip is the one person that he doesn’t decide to put in some sort of false identity. (Possibly too big of a risk? Evil Rip was pretty terrifying…) But he still wants to keep the poor guy close at hand.
One day, I will write the worst Thawnter fic ever, I swear.
