here is thea! she's full of teenage gumption, sarcastic remarks and ANGST. could possibly be very annoying, but it's understandable in a lot of ways. her father is definitely dead (wah!), her brother has just come back from the dead (yay!), and she has complicated mother issues (boo!).
no stranger to conflict or spotlights, thea has built herself a reputation fit to rival oliver's, but despite it all she's really not a bad person at heart. lots of issues? yes. lacking in the way of sunshine? definitely. but bad? no. she has no ambition to change anyone's perception of her though. if they don't know her then they don't know her. what is she to them and what are they to her? pretty much nothin' that's what.
her usual crowd would include school kids like the party crowd. she's also no stranger to the club scene, regardless of the fact that she is not even close to being legal drinking age. thea also has the ability to be kind, kinda wise and extremely sympathetic, you just have to find a way to tap that part of her in order for her to show it.
1: I haven't done a "proper welcome" home thread since there was no one on the board that was apart of Oliver's immediate family. So if you'd like, we can do that. It might may rather short, but if wanted, we could use that thread for her to drag him into the mini-graveyard.
2: She is more than welcome to get seriously drunk at the Halloween party and spill the beans about Laurel and Tommy once Laurel is there (she's due to show up at some point). Or she can start a scene causing Oliver or someone else to take her outside.
I thought it might be nice if during the whole five year thing Laurel checked up on Thea from time to time, took her out to lunch or shopping, basically kept in contact since they would have some sort of relationship. Not sure what this would mean for their present. I know that she helps Thea out when she needs some direction in the show.
hey! so i just tried to respond and my reply got lost. >_<
long story short! yes, i like that idea. i think thea would have really liked laurel back when she and ollie were dating. the idea of having a cool ‘older sister’ would have really appealed to her.
after the yacht went down, i think there wouldn’t have been that initial “my brother slept with your sister and they both died together on a yacht trip that he invited her to go on and not you’ thing which would have made it aaaaawkwarrrrrrd.
maybe, because laurel is uber mature and thea is not, laurel reached out to thea after the initial shock and stuff was over, and after getting past the awkwardness, they kept in touch over the years until the business with tommy entered the picture? and then we could work out how they get along present day?
Given Emily and Thea both have a rep for being a little bit wild despite coming from opposite sides of the tracks they might know each other? Emily's the front woman of a kinda rock slash pop slash punkish band, I can imagine the two have met at shows or something considering they will get their hands on be it house shows or in bars or clubs.
I can see Thea being one of the few people from "the other side" that Emily can actually get on with, mostly because she is actually a pretty nice person at heart, but they both do the tough front nothing phases me excuse me while I dance the night away to show you how much I care about nothing thing. I can totally see the whole, ambition to make people change the way they think about her having worked, sure Emily is a young angry girl wanting to change the world and make things better, and I can see some of Theas wisdom and stuff rubbing off on Emily.
Can totally see them being the kinda friend that holds the others hair back at the end of the night and goes "man we really screwed up good. Excellent."
yes! so ala the c-box, should we have a party thread some time between the 12th and 20th where thea and em are partying in typical druggie fashion? and then oliver can either find out because he's at the same place and sees them, or because he hears rumors. woo!
