    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.

    I want this to get recognition as a novel. I think you could read this even if you've never seen GW and get sucked in to the sci-fi epic that it is. It also does things to canon that have canon wailing about people who really GET canon; canon doesn't even smoke but canon WANTS A CIGARETTE.

    Summary

    It's been years since the Hargreeves siblings have spoken to one another, but on their twenty-third birthday they manage to cross paths with each other a whole lot anyway. A canon-compliant prequel fic in the form of a flashback episode.

    (Otherwise known as, an assistant who worked on The Umbrella Academy S1 had so many feelings that she took her unused pitches, wrote a spec script, and uploaded it to AO3 after the show was finally released.)

    Summary

    "Klaus was fourteen and he wanted the world at his feet. Longing was a keening animal pushing out from within his body, the thralls of puberty pulling him taut in every direction. He wanted to run, to fight, to fuck. God, he wanted to fuck."

    Klaus's fall from grace through the lens of his relationship with Diego. No actual incest here, just an unrequited crush. Or, a more realistic take on how the Academy's upbringing would impact Klaus's notions of romance.
