Silent are the children born of water; deep and deceptive and brooding as the oceans that raised them and as wise and ancient as the rivers running through their veins, whispering tales of dark beauty and abandoned kingdoms in languages long deceased. Strange and uncertain creatures that they are, children with water in their blood and damp in their hair are the most fragile and powerful of all, capable of drowning men and flooding cities and swallowing the earth whole, and when you kiss them you can taste salt and hard, blind rage and the bitter, unforgiving tinge of disaster.

It’s almost 2am and I think I wrote something long enough and properly enough to call it fanfiction.
(to clarify for those that don’t know what we’re talking about, which is actually gonna be most people since I’m posting this as a fanfic wow, tl;dr is that Arthur keeps track of how many times each of the others have saved his bacon, and doesn’t realize how helpful he is as well, and also is the only one who still hasn’t forgiven himself for what happened to Lewis.)
I thought about that on my walk today and came up with a happy ending because I’m a huge sap. (it relies on a few headcanons, that they live together now and that they’ve been friends since high school)
One day Arthur is looking through the binder where he keeps miscellaneous papers and happens to find it again. The List. He scowls at the page like “ugh, I’m sick of looking at this thing”, rips it out and throws it away.
Later that day Vivi goes to throw something away, or maybe she’s taking out the trash, and sees a piece of paper in the garbage can. “Come on now, Arthur,” she thinks, “you should know by now not to put recyclables in the garbage….” She unwraps the ball of paper to check if there’s a piece of gum inside, and instead finds what appears to be a self-depreciating account, clearly written by Arthur, of all the times the other members of the gang have saved his bacon.
WHAT IS GOING ON. WHY THE SHIITAKE MUSHROOMS ARE MY BABIES HALEB NOT TOGETHER ANYMORE. WHY THE SHIT???
DO YOU THINK THATS A GOOD IDEA MARLENE BECAUSE NOT ONLY HAVE YOU GIVEN US THE MOST ANTI CLIMATIC AND SHITTY FUCKING REVEAL IN THE HISTORY OF TELEVISION, BUT YOUR SORRY LITTLE ASS DECIDES TO BREAK UP HALEB AND HAVE HER BE ENGAGED AND PREGNANT TO ANOTHER GUY.
