    Summary

    Of all the things Joel expected that morning, being given a case file for a kid in need of a foster home was the last thing on that list. Little did he know that the girl in the file would come to mean as much to him as his own daughter.

    Ellie never thought she had much to gain from her life. She thought she was destined to just drift from home to home--family to family--until she hit 18, graduated high school, and would live a mediocre-at-best life until she died. So when word that she might make it into another foster home reached her, she thought it was going to be just like all the others. The last thing she would ever expect was that it would be the last home she'd be put into, and that she would become a member of that family.

    Summary

    We all know Tess was a badass, and we also all know she didn’t deserve to be killed off so early. Sure, it was a plot device to motivate Joel but have you ever thought of what the game might have been like if she lived? Have you also ever wondered what Tess’s past may have been like? Well this is the fic for you. I need an outlet for my feels until TLOU Part 2 comes out and this is it right here. I’m also basing a lot of lore details on my own headcanons, so some of that might sound weird or wrong but just bear in mind that Naughty Dog didn’t give us a super detailed world to work off of in the first place.

    TL;DR: This is an Angsty Origin Story™ for Tess.
