Life’s a Bitch: A Veronica Mars/Arrow AU
a long time, we used to be friends
but i haven’t thought of you lately at all
Come on, everybody knows this story. The disappearance of Sara Lance. It was on People magazine. It made Entertainment Tonight. The town flooded with journalists.
And of course, everyone remembers reading about the arrest and trial of Oliver Queen - the guy she was sleeping with, her sister’s boyfriend. How Quentin Lance won the election for Police Chief in a landslide, all for finding his daughter’s killer, even if there never was an actual body.
That guy she was sleeping with, her sister’s boyfriend? That’s my brother.
After the trial, my mom’s belief in Ollie’s innocence became a moot point. QC stock prices plummeted. Dad wanted to officially disown him, move out of town.
The loss of status was too much for him. Dad hooked up with his COO - Isabel Rochev - and hightailed it out of town; QC went bankrupt. The loss of income was too much for her. Mom hid herself in her room, stares at the walls most days.
I don’t know what tore my family apart, but I can promise you this. I will find out what really happened and I will bring my family back together again. Is that mushy? Well, you know what they say. Thea Queen, she’s a marshmallow.
And thanks to the new girl - Felicity Smoak - I’m one step closer to finding out.
