ElectricBoogaloo October 26, 2018 Share October 26, 2018 Hope: When we're young, we're taught the distinction between a hero and a villain, good and evil, a savior and a lost cause. But what if the only real difference is just who's telling the story? Landon: I knew Hope went to some fancy boarding school. People in town said it was for troubled rich kids. I see the rich part is true. Alaric: I used to have a speech prepared, carefully unpeeling the layers of mystical history, but it turns out most people have read Harry Potter and are actually cool with me skipping the tee up. Landon: Either I've lost my mind or werewolves are real. This is beyond insane. How is that even possible? Alaric: It's a long story, involving an ancient, vengeful witch and a bloodline curse. We cover all that in Origins of the Species, grade six. Landon: In sixth grade at my school, we learned the state capitals. Landon: You know, for a school with a secret to keep, you're kind of liberal with your information. Lizzie: Alyssa Chang made a broom fly in physics last year but Rick Rogers fell 30 feet during practice so real life Quidditch remains an elusive pipe dream. Hope: You should really let a vampire start doing my training. You're getting a little old for me to break your human bones. Alaric: How dare you? Hope: You're the one that's always telling me I need to get out more. Alaric: I tell you that you need to stop locking yourself in your dorm room binge-watching Cutthroat Kitchen. I don't tell you to go out and fraternize with the human locals. Landon: You know, you do that a lot. Hope: Do what? Landon: Leave. Lizzie: Dad, do you think I'm broken? Alaric: Of course not. I think your biological mother's crazy-ass witch ancestors left you with a legacy of darkness that you have to work through. Lizzie: But Josie doesn't have freak outs. Alaric: Josie spends a lot of time worrying about other people's happiness. It's a supernatural phenomenon called co-dependency, and I'm pretty sure she got it from my side of the family. MG: No, like, Twilight ruined all vampire mythos. Okay, y'all want reality, y'all got to go old-school. Okay, my man Blade, he is the GOAT. His crazy moms was all, "You wouldn't kill me." And then he's all, "I must release you." And he's like bam, stab! Dude kills his crazy ass mom! I'm not saying that y'all should kill your mom, cause that's messed up. Rafael: She was the best person I knew. Pretty much loved her in that way that they say only exists in movies. Josie: People who say that are the people who have never had their hearts crushed. MG: This isn't much of an after party, Penelope. There aren't any snacks. MG: Okay, well, for one, we're not supposed to. For two, last I checked, you were more into girls, and for three- Penelope: No one asked you to bring math into this conversation. For one, rules are meant to be broken. For two, I am an equal opportunity evil temptress, and your binary assumptions about sexuality - they're dated. And for three, I don't really care what your three was, but are you gonna suck me dry or not? Landon: "Klaus Mikaelson: The Great Evil." Hope: He wasn't very popular around here. Me: He wasn't very popular anywhere due to his murderous rampages. 3 Link to comment
