HOW DARE YOU
IT’S OKAY I’LL FIX IT
choose your canon-divergence!
A) after the dust has settled from recent events Lydia stomps up to Marin and demands to know what she knows about banshee powers (because Alan told her that his sister knew more, and bc fuck ever going near Peter again), demanding to know how her powers allowed her to resurrect that creeper and demanding to know whether she can bring Allison back.
and it’s possible, Marin explains, but it’s difficult and disturbing and painful, and the result isn’t always what you want. but Lydia insists on trying, and Marin bargains with her that if she helps her do this and Lydia succeeds then she has to do her best to bring Laura back too.
and it is difficult and horrible and painful, but Lydia is successful, both times, obviously. and after a long and painful and traumatic recovery period, Laura’s back, and whole, beating heart and breathing lungs and hot blood. and there’s still a lot of tension between Marin and Laura, but after everything they’ve gone through they manage to work it out, let it stay in the past so they can move forward.
and of course Lydia also brings Erica and Boyd back (and then swears she’s never doing that ritual ever again) and they join Laura’s pack of not-dead werewolves and together with Marin they head off into the South American sunset to find Cora and live happily ever after as the pack they wanted to be. and all is well and they live long lives.
B) a couple of years after Laura and Derek left BH they’re settling into life in New York and Laura’s making Derek go to a local emissary who works as a supernatural counsellor while she looks for work. and she finds a job at a little second hand bookshop owned by these two elderly siblings who know about werewolves but don’t immediately let on about it to her, instead making her paranoid for a few months with a bunch of offhand comments around the full moon and stuff, until she figures them out and they all laugh about it. and they treat her like family because their family were awful, and they know what it’s like to have to make a life on your own in a strange new city. and they dote on Derek and make him blush, and let him sit around reading old history books in his spare time.
and then Laura is going to get coffee one day and she sees a new shop has opened up a block away, in an old CD store, and it’s an apothecary. and Laura’s curiosity is piqued because it’s pretty unusual to see those, so she sticks her head in the door, and there’s Marin, behind the dark wood counter, smiling slyly at her and sliding a freshly brewed cup of Laura’s favourite verbena and lavender tea blend across towards her. and Laura is so shocked and elated that she bursts into tears and pulls Marin into her arms and they just stay like that for like half an hour, and then spend the rest of the afternoon together catching up.
and Marin’s business is super successful, obviously, and she settles into life with Laura and Derek. and Cora finds them eventually, and they’re one big happy pack, and live happily ever after.
(and the Alpha pack never happens, Kali and Julia are happy okay, and Peter never gets better and just dies the end.)
