I know a girl
She puts the color inside of my world
But she's just like a maze
Where all of the walls all continually change

And I've done all I can
To stand on her steps with my heart in my hand
Now I'm starting to see
Maybe it's got nothing to do with me




Alcatraz has been having trouble understanding his daughter recently, and what her actions mean about his fathering abilities, especially with the recent events... ;-;

He is her father, eager to control every move she makes, and quick to take responsibility for her decisions. But at the end of the day he finally realizes that Teva isn't him. She's Teva. And putting such pressure on her, or any of his children, is wrong. She's her own beautiful wolf, who has her own unique mind, her own thoughts, her own actions, and her own mistakes. Just like he had (also to the dismay of his own parents). Teva has to figure it out on her own. All he can do now is love her.

((And the more I think about it this father and daughter are more alike than I even realized))

This picture is portraying a happy memory Alcatraz has of back when Teva was a juvenile/young adult, when he takes her out to explore the territory. Back when the world was bright and happy for both! :)

I love this so much. ; 0; There aren't words for how much I love their relationship. This hits hard with Teva on her way out of Aryn now. ; 0; I want them to have more adorable father/daughter moments. TT ATT

Also every time I read the title my mind immediately snaps to part of a Moana song (largely because I listen to the album too much but also because part is kinda relevant):

I know a girl from an island
She stands apart from the crowd
She loves the sea and her people
She makes her whole family proud
Sometimes the world seems against you
The journey may leave a scar
But scars can heal and reveal just
Where you are

    I love the calming feeling it's emitting, and the movement of both the fur and grass is done nicely too!
