5 Works in Waverly Earp Backstory
“I’m not just speaking a little bit special, I mean really, really special. You’re loyal, Nicole. You’re strong, and you’re brave. You’re a protector.” He slowly got out, walking around to open the car door for the child. He handed her a pair of boots, a size too big but good enough, and she slipped them on before following him with the blanket still held tight around her. “You, Nicole Haught, were chosen by the stars to protect one person… Only one, your entire life. Now, even if you forget all this I know your heart won’t so I’ll let you in on a little secret, she ain’t no ordinary person.” He rested his hand gently to the small girl’s shoulder.
“She’s an angel.”
Nicole escapes from the Shelterlands Massacre on the same night Michelle Gibson/Earp attempts to burn her infant daughter alive. Is it fate? Or does it kickstart a destiny that will join the pair forever in otherworldly ways, and shape both of their lives.
Picks up at the end of season two and attempts to answer the giant knot of questions it left behind. Dolls and Nicole delve deep into the mysteries of Bulshar and the secrets that brought our favourite ginger cop to small-town demon hunting. Mama Earp returns to help face the oncoming storm, but it seems even Wynonna may not know everything she’s hiding. And our dear little toaster Waverly, the nicest person in Purgatory, learns the history behind her kinship with a demon.
Wayhaught centric, featuring the eternal joy of the Wynaught brotp.
Before, Waverly didn't like colours. Now she does.
Waverly Earp's life, before and after meeting Nicole Haught.
Waverly looks like she’s steeling herself to take a bullet. “I hurt Nicole.”
Wynonna’s eyes widened.
“She’ll forgive you, accidents —”
“Wasn’t an accident,” Waverly cut off determinedly, fingertips still shaking.
“What — what was it— ”
“Purposeful. I hurt her on purpose. Nicole, Wynonna. Something’s wrong... really, really wrong.”
Wynonna blanched at her tone — it was rare to hear Waverly this terrified. She expelled a fucking demon from her body and started making jokes and herbal teas disguised as coffee. That was just Waverly. This was...
“Like.. Mikshun wrong?”
“No... this was entirely conscious. At this point, I kind of wish it was still Mikshun."
OR, Waverly is terrified of what she can intrinsically feel herself capable of, and is tired of being told it's something to kill, because it's not something. She remembers what Dolls said -- "The thing inside me isn't a passenger; it's just me."
It's just her. And there's a part of her that doesn't want to kill it. Even a part that would fight for it.
(This is basically a dark, tragically fated love triangle between Waverly, her soul & her identity.)
"But sometimes, the Homestead feels cold, even on a hot summer day. Most of the time, Wynonna is out with Dolls on a Black Badge case, or getting drunk, or out doing whatever is Wynonna does when she’s not shooting or drunk. And now that Doc has left, finding himself a more permanent place to rest his mustache, it’s empty.
Just like it was when you were little."
