    Summary

    Fic Summary: At age seventeen, Klaus Hargreeves kills himself. The now four remaining members of the Umbrella Academy (and Vanya) attempt to save face for the Academy, while each struggling with their own grief. Fortunately for them and unfortunately for Klaus, his power over death lets him come back to earth, if only as a ghost. But when the only person who can see him is Ben, whose grief is compounding with his own mental breakdown, can these two screwed-up brothers help each other, or will they just spiral in tandem?

    Summary

    Klaus is not a bad person compared to the Earth's entire population, he is not even a bad person compared to everyone in the Hargreeves family (it would be hard to top Dad); but compared to Ben, he is the worst person in existence. Compared to Ben, he is an idiot. Compared to Ben, he is a failure.

    To fall is a relative term and when his family looks at their (very limited and isolated) time with Ben and at their time knowing Klaus… it is clear who has fallen from grace and who has risen to greatness.

    It is clear that, relatively, he could have done so much better.

     

    OR

    "I heard a rumor," He desperately tries to cover his ears but it's to no avail; his irises slip into a milky white, "that you do whatever Ben tells you to do."
