    Summary

    formerly titled "like lovecraft in brooklyn"

    Sometimes Six thought about turning himself inside out. About opening the portal wide and swallowing himself whole. Then what would he see? Where would he be? What would he be?

    -

    A slice of life/coming of age AU in which Ben survives and Five isn't stranded in the future, focused on character development and sibling dynamics, exploring how the characters are shaped by their upbringing through Ben's perspective. Also, a heavy helping of contemplation on the Horror. In which somehow, coexisting with an alien body double proves less fraught than forming a family.

    Summary

    Almost a year after his disappearance, Five Hargreeves returns to the Umbrella Academy. As delighted as they are to see him, his siblings cannot help but notice that Five is not acting entirely like himself. He's easily distracted by men with briefcases, and won't give anyone a clear answer on where he's been. And for some reason, it might all have something to do with ordinary Number Seven.

    Or, Five escapes the Icarus Theater to wind up back in the Academy with his fourteen-year-old siblings. Siblings who are determined to figure out where he's been, no matter how far they have to go in search of answers.

    (Featuring donuts, time-traveling assassins, sibling bonding, and one family who cannot stop breaking the timeline.)

    Summary

    Delores Browning, Dot for short, was a normal girl living in the suburb of The City. But on March 24th everything changed. Dot woke up being the only one to survive the end of the world, at just the age of 13 she was completely alone. At least that's what she thought until Number Five Hargreeves appears out of nowhere and becomes her companion.

    Now, 45 years later, Dot and Five must travel back in time to save the world from its demise. Except there's one problem:

    They don't know how the world ends and don't know how to stop it.

    Along the way the two meet the rest of Five's dysfunctional and super-powered family, time traveling assassins, their old boss, and Dot might just learn a few things about herself. Because one thing's always certain, the most unlikely things will always happen.

    Summary

    It’s not that he doesn’t have a lot to say, in fact, that’s kind of the problem. The words get all jumbled in his mind and he can’t pick out the right letters to form and instead they all just get stuck in his throat.

    But Klaus knows this.

    Or
    Klaus talks so Diego doesn't have to

    Or or
    Klaus 'comes out' about his clothing choices and Diego has a lot he can't say but hopes Klaus knows anyway

    Summary

    If there was one thing the Hargreeves knew about Reginald; it was that he absolutely hated betas.

    ~

    On their 16th birthday, everyone presents as an alpha, beta, or omega. There are typically no late or early presenters. On the day of presentations, emotions are heightened in accordance to which status people receive. Alphas get increased anger. Omegas become sadder. Betas remain normal. People become familiar with the changes by the middle of the day as ruts/heats hit.

    The Hargreeves family finally gain their secondary genders. However, as everyone around him becomes chaotic, Ben is the only one that remains the same. That could only mean one thing: He's a beta. What is he going to do when his father finds out his status? It seems that they never considered the fact that one of them could (and would) end up as the status their father despised. Luckily, Five is there to help. (Oh and they're in love.)

    ~

    The summary might be a bit confusing. Basically, Five and Ben face the challenges of getting their subgenders, even if some of them don't include their father. After all, most monsters come from within. Ben is going to discover just how true that is.

    Summary

    "Do you think that maybe, and this is just a suggestion, that you might want a more diverse perspective?”

    “Are you saying that just because I’m ordinary, I can’t write about my life?”

    Klaus shook his head, and Vanya sighed. “No, but maybe you could consult some of us before you write it. Diego has some shit to say about Dad, too. I’m sure he’d love to help.”

    ---------------------

    Vanya takes her book in a different direction, and it makes all the difference.

    Summary

    The dream had been a continuation of the last one she'd glimpsed. A young boy with aristocratic features wearing a fancy school uniform. A gun glinting under the fluorescent lights of a classroom. Children screaming and clambering under tables. The bodies of those that weren't fortunate enough to make a quick getaway. Blood blooming across white buttoned shirts and spoiling blue blazers. The alarm bell droning on and on and on in the background.

    She'd watched as a bullet tore the boy's shirt in half. She'd watched as he fell out of his chair and slumped to the ground, as lifeless as all the other children. She'd watched as the gunners left the classroom, triumph visible in every line of their bodies. She'd watched as he jerked back to life, the bullet pushing through his skin and bouncing off his thigh. She'd watched as he stared at the bodies surrounding him. She'd watched as something inside him fractured and broke.

    She hadn't wanted to watch anymore.

    Summary

    Diego ties the cloth around his eyes and turns the police scanner to static. Without the hundred voices speaking to each other in code over assaults and bodega robberies, he can slip seamlessly into the Void like a fish to water.

    -:-

    Two was four years old when Dad first took him to the bath.

    It took less than a year for him to realise that his body would never be his own.

    OR

    While testing Diego’s ability to hold his breath under water, Sir Reginald Hargreeves discovers that his forever disappointing Number Two has a third, and far more useful, power.

    Summary

    "Did you mess up again?" Luther demanded, looking at Five. "I thought the suitcase was supposed to make things easier!"

    "But we're in the right time." Vanya muttered. "We saw the newspaper."

    "We are," Five groaned, running his hands through his face. "We are in the right time, but we must have changed the timeline somehow. Back when we were in the 60's."

    "But if we don't exist as Umbrella Academy in this timeline, how are we still here? As in existing?" Allison asked.

    Diego closed his eyes, breathing in. "I should have at least downloaded the orientation of the Commission somewhere. Maybe gotten a quick recap from Herbie."

    "Uh, guys?" Klaus said, and they all looked to see him staring and pointing. They followed his line of sight and found the woman from earlier sitting on the couch behind Diego.

    She's smiling back at Klaus' slightly terrified expression before she stood up and looked at all of them. "Well, I guess it's time to put you all in timeout now."

    Summary

    Time moves differently for different people.
    For Five, ten years in the apocalypse had dragged on forever and yet they had also passed by in a flash. Ever the same, never changing, until the Handler showed up to recruit him.
    For Helena, her time serving the Commission had been dangerous and exciting, and then eventually, mundane and repetitive. Ever the same, never changing, until the Handler brought her a new partner.
    Time moves differently. It placed them both here and now, and they'll move time itself to stay together.
    [Canon divergence if Five had been recruited at age 25. See A/N for more]

    Summary

    Number Five's powers are delicate and dangerous. Interacting with the flow of time and very reality, his powers require a deep understanding of the world around him; of all matter of science and maths; knowledge deeper than any human has had so far.

    And when Number Five proves incapable of achieving these standards, Reginald will find a solution, even if he has to make it himself.

    Summary

    When the alarm sounded, lessons were immediately forgotten by six siblings, while the seventh, Number Five, began reading faster.

    “Alright” said Diego, “Yessssssss! Mission time!” He turned to Ben for a high five. Ben hesitated, then reluctantly put his hand up, which Diego slapped way too enthusiastically.

    Summary

    Five and Vanya, who'd been able to keep their relationship a secret from their five siblings, robotic mother, advanced chimpanzee butler, and asshole father for nearly three years, watched as all their work to keep it hidden was thrown out the window by two nosy siblings. And who could've guessed that Reginald Hargreeves would react poorly, and irrationally, to one of his most promising Umbrella Academy members having an intimate relationship with his 'ordinary' child; especially to the extent of sending her off to a boarding school halfway around the world.

    And to make things worse, being halfway across the world from each other was the least of their problems.

    Summary

    “So you’re going to… What? Just start refusing to go on missions?” Luther’s eyes flick from Allison to Vanya, and she knows that the question that he’s not asking is ‘And in that case, why is she even here?’

    Vanya takes a deep breath and Allison starts to say ‘I heard a rumor that you got through this conversation without crying’ (because respect for Ben is one thing but Allison’s not Ben, she doesn’t have his patience, his accepting nature, she is not and has never aspired to be nice in the way he was) but Vanya surprises everyone by saying, “No. Not refusing to go, just getting out.” 

    Everyone’s looking at Vanya now, so Allison does her the favour of shifting their attention away from her. “Yeah. Vanya’s got it.”

    Following Ben's funeral, Allison reflects on her father's advice, comes to her own conclusion about the best way to ensure there's never a next time, and rallies her siblings into doing whatever they need to do in order to protect the family they have left.

    Even after averting the apocalypse they didn’t seem to fit into the frameworks of a family, sure they where getting better but,

    They did always seem to forget about little number four.
