Vex'ahlia doesn’t hate Scanlan. Not for wanting to be a father to his daughter. Because she knows what it’s like to discover someone important and realizing you weren’t there for all their milestones in life. (She tries not to think about missing Velora’s first words, her first steps). Because she is not broken. At least not anymore. Now she has family to hold her together (she tries to forget Keyleth’s words of how “family always leaves").
Vex'ahlia doesn’t hate Kaylie for stealing walking away with Scanlan. Doesn’t envy her chance at connecting with someone so closed off to everyone else. Because Vex is not unwanted even as she heard Scanlan walk away from Vox Machina without hesitation. (She stomps down the familiar feeling of abandonment, similar to the time she and Vax snuck out of Syngorn and realized days later that Sildor did not even try to find them). Because Kaylie deserves a chance at getting a father. (She pretends not to hear the voice whispering how Kaylie is representing what Vex could have had.)
Vex'ahlia does hate the blond in front of her, Targaryen or whatever his name is. Because he carries himself with the same sense of self importance found in the entitled elf children who constantly bullied her brother. “It is not selfish,” she thinks to herself, “to take 50,000 gold from someone who can obviously afford it. (She does not acknowledge how her fingers are not just tingling with the desire to take but to hurt.) Because he hides behind lives of others. “It is not cruel to look down on a coward.” (She allows herself to project all her frustrations onto someone who does not matter.)
And when Vex notices the black, rotting spots growing on Fenthras the next time she pulls it out, well… She just saved the world, she can afford not to forgive the unfairness of life right now.
I am scared for all the minorities in the US right now, especially for the ones who can’t hide it because it’s in our natural physical appearance. Regardless of who wins, it won’t be safe tonight (and maybe even for days to come).
