    Summary

    Five took a breath. He let it out slowly. 

    "I'm sorry, ok? For everything. I really am - no, don't interrupt me." He made a shooeing motion back towards his siblings but he didn't turn around. This was hard enough to get through, and he didn't want any interruptions until he was done.

    Summary

    Five is gone and something breaks

    Klaus doesn't remember him leaving, doesn't remember the words said in the argument between Five and Father. He remembers the slamming of the door echoing in the silence of the room but even then he doesn't dwell upon it.

    Staring at the Not-Five portrait hung there in false commemoration with a blunt rolled between his fingers and the hazy wisps of the dead he wonders and wishes. Putting the blunt to his lips he breathes in and everything fades

    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

    With the Hargreeves returned to their original timeline with Five still trapped in a teenage body and no legal guardians or place to call home, it’s not long before the state’s involvement and a couple of court cases before his placement into the foster system.

    It isn’t like it really matters anyway. Five can spatial jump and travel through time. A pesky foster family that aren’t particularly nice aren’t ever getting in the way.

    But when the lives of his siblings are endangered yet again by an unknown source full of blackmailing threats, Five realises he’s run out of options.

    So he does what he’s asked. He avoids his siblings, stays put in his temporary home, and does everything in his power to keep them safe. Besides, it’s not as if they have to know, right?

    Then he kills his foster father.

    And things start to get very, very complicated.

    Summary

    There’s a wall of fucking fire racing towards them, absolutely obliterating everything in its path.
    And in a moment of sudden, intense clarity, Five thinks-

    Fuck that.

    Or, they stop the apocalypse- but nothing is ever that easy, and they’re left to deal with the fallout of everything that came Before.

    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.

    With the apocalypse averted for the foreseeable future and the Hargreeves' back in their correct timeline, the siblings are adjusting back to normal life (at least, as normal as it can be where they are concerned).

    However, Five never had anything resembling a normal life.
    A late-night snack leads to a long overdue conversation.

    Allison tries to help, Five is stubborn, and plates are more trouble than they're worth.

    Summary

    It was no secret that Number Five held massive amounts of disdain for his family members, no matter how much he claimed to love them. There was, however, an exception found in Number Eight, named Letitia by Grace. Before his untimely disappearance, the two were thick as thieves and joined at the hip in more ways than one. However, after living in a post-apocalyptic hell for 42 years, will Five be able to come back to Letitia and find the same solace in her as he did before?

    Summary

    “What are you saying?” he asks faintly, even though he can already see where it’s going, can sense the threat hidden between the words, recognizes the cold glint of her eyes as she leans in closer, her lips stretching in a sickening smile.

    “I’m sending you back to where you belong, Number Five. Back to where we first met.”

    Back to the apocalypse, hangs in the air between them, unsaid and yet clear as day.

    Summary

    Kenopsia: the eeriness of busy places once they've been left abandoned.

    Solitude can do funny things to the mind, and everyone can see that Five's gone a little feral. Now that there isn't an apocalypse chasing them, his siblings turn to their next challenge: making sure that when Five inevitably fell apart, they'd be there to catch him.

    Unfortunately, they're all a little emotionally stunted and it doesn't always go according to plan.

    //

    No apocalypse, no sparrows, post season 2, emotionally cathartic fluff about Five acclimating to not being in constant danger.
