    Summary

    “Nell, do you hear it? Are you awake?”

    I am not awake, Eleanor told herself, I am asleep and I will stay asleep, for attention, because Theodora knows all about the things which people do in order to receive attention; I will lie here quietly and calmly and she may cry and be afraid alone tonight. “I am awake,” Eleanor said. “What do you hear?”

    (It seemed to Eleanor that it was not a symptom of disease to be precisely and unapologetically what one was: a house, or otherwise.)

    Summary

    “It was a house without kindness, never meant to be lived in, not a fit place for people or for hope or for love. Exorcism cannot alter the countenance of a house; Hill House will stay as it was then, until it is destroyed.” - Allison Hargeeves, The Haunting of Hill House

     

    Nearly two decades after the tragedy that made them famous, the Hargreeves children, now grown, have moved on with their lives, and from one another.

    There’s the realtor who deals in ironies.

    The writer, who sold their story, and paid a price in return.

    The police officer, who’ll save a thousand lives to repay the death he couldn’t prevent.

    The addict - recovering - who’s doing his best.

    And the psychic who sees danger ahead, even if they won’t believe her.

     

    They’re all content to leave the House where it belongs, in the childhood they’d rather forget. But we know, you and I, that it isn’t going to happen.

    We remember them. And Hill House doesn’t forget.

    Summary

    Some houses are born bad; some houses achieve badness; and some houses have badness thrust upon them.

     

    Some houses die bad.

     

    Crimson Peak sinks. Hill House burns.

    Summary

    Where was dear sweet Theo? Rare were the days she couldn't be lured even from slumber with the smell of coffee, and Nell has lost track of the number of cups she has made by now. She has asked Hill House about the queer absence of her friends, of course, but it hasn't responded.

    [ Nell stays, Theo returns. ]

    Summary

    “Let them go.” He repeats, begging, praying that it would be enough.

    His mother smiles at him, all sharp edges and lips stretched too wide.

    “You’ll stay with me?” she asks.

    He nods, and she draws him in.

    Steve closes his eyes.

    He feels icy fingers against his back, barely touching but pushing all the same, and he allows his mother to pull him forward.

     

    Or,

     

    Things go differently at the Hill House.

    Summary

    A year after their last confrontation with Hill House, the Crains are still relearning how to be a family. In some ways, it's better - Luke's clean, Theo's engaged, and Shirley's marriage has no more secrets - but their father and sister are still dead, and Steve is more distant than ever.

    When the youngest member of their family starts to present with some very familiar abilities, they soon realize that their problems did not start with Hill House, and they are certainly far from over.

    Summary

    Excerpt from Ch. 4;
    "Her eyes had been so wide and her dress so blue and she’d looked so sad when she saw him that first time he visited after Nell and Dad, as if though she knew what he didn’t in those moments before the porchlight flashed twice and his mother smiled and this seemed naught but a distant dream.

    (And perhaps, she did.)"

    ***

    Steve goes to the house seven times.

    Summary

    Eleanor Vance, being newly arrived and clearly in possession of a heart (though a quite unusual one), posed a puzzle to the house: need a heart be a heart, or could it be another person, several other people, in fact? Eleanor's heart is a strange and skittish thing, quite open and yet quite full up with indiscriminate attachments, and for the first time Hill House begins to want a heart of its own.

    [ Nell and Theo, from Hill House's maybe-not-eyes. ]
