You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make me happy
When skies are grey
You’ll never know dear
How much I love you
Please don’t take
My sunshine away
So I originally had this idea for a Mother’s Day picture but things came up so I had to delay this.
Now for unpopular opinion time: I do not think Thalassa abandoned Apollo just because.
Chances are when Apollo’s father died she was probably unsure if she could raise her child by herself or felt that she, by herself, couldn’t be the one to give him the life she felt he deserved. There’s probably also the possibility that her father forced her to abandon Apollo, telling her that she couldn’t go to back to Troupe Gramarye with him (and I wouldn’t put it past Magnifi to be honest. ) Not to mention that she did leave one of her bracelets with Apollo, if she just wanted him gone she would never have given him a priceless family heirloom.
There are plenty of stories in real life of women who had to give up their children because of circumstances beyond their control and I feel that that was the case for Thalassa. I do hope that a future game in the franchise will either tell us what happened or at the least give us some closure for Thalassa and her children.
Headcanoning aside, despite a few details (like my perspective and I wish I knew a better way to do that sign) I’m relatively happy with this picture and I hope you guys are too.
