Subject: Oliver & Thea Queen
Title: million miles between us
Warnings: implied incest
Notes: made for waywardmixes challenge 12 - family

Arrow is (yet another) retelling of the DC Comic character Green Arrow. Our story begins with Oliver Queen, millionaire playboy, being rescued from an island where he has spent the last 5 years struggling to survive. He returns home to a mother and a sister who had thought him dead and a life that is barely as he remembers. He uses the skills learned on the island to become The Hood, a bow and arrow welding vigilante that cuts down the corrupt upper class that are bleeding the city of all of it's resources.

This mix isn't about that though. It's about a brother and sister that were everything to each other having their other half ripped away.

Five years of believing her brother to be dead, Thea is barely holding herself together. Molding herself into the same image the city had of her brother, party all night, waste away all day. Then her brother is back. Alive but different.

Five years of thinking he would never see his baby sister again. Five years of regret for all the things he wasted, people he didn't appreciate. He returns home to a sister that doesn't know how to live with him. She just wants him to be the old Oliver, the real Oliver again, and all he sees when he looks at her is who he used to be.

million miles between us

Everybody's Numb - Thea Gilmore -
you can roll your eyes and write me off as paranoid | tell me under Gucci suits lie twisted girls and tortured boys | but nothing gets my back up quite like martyrdom | when everybody’s numb

Wine Red - The Hush Sound -
who shot that arrow in your throat? who missed the crimson apple? | and there is discord in the garden tonight | the sea is wine red this is the death of beauty | the doves have died the lovers have lied

Spanish Doll - Poe -
this place feels so unfamiliar and yet I know it well | I think I used to belong here but the only way I can tell | is that I miss you still and I cannot find you here | you left me tattered and torn just like that Spanish doll

Vertigo - Rachael Sage -
every time you tell me secrets and I listen hard | I feel like I'm the parchment and you are the bard | every time you tell me things I'm not sure you should say | I feel like I'm standing still, running away

Fact-Fiction - Mads Langer -
I dream of dreaming dreams of her - in twilight she's a constant blur | the picture is clear and I'm still fact she's fiction | I seem to miss the missing part, she's still my favorite work of art | the picture is clear and I'm still fact she's fiction

The World As I See It - Jason Mraz -
it’s not hard for me to love you (hard for me to love you) | no, it’s not a difficult thing | it’s not hard for me to love you (hard for me to love you) | because you are the world to me

Thinking of You - Christian Kane -
and when a new moon shines through your window | or you hear a sad song on the radio | and you don't know why but you just start to cry | or you're driving round on a sunny day and out of nowhere comes the pouring rain | then a memory hits you right out of the blue | that's just me, thinking of you

Everything - Buckcherry -
Buried way beneath the sheets I think she's having a meltdown | Finding it hard to fall asleep she won't let anyone help her | The look on her face a waste of time she won't let go gonna roll the dice | Losing her grace starts to cry I feel her pain when I look in her eyes
