    Summary

    “I have something here. A note. A, uh, letter. Um.” She cleared her throat and slipped into her best poetry recital voice. “I wish that everything was different. I wish that I was part of something. I wish that anything I said mattered to anyone. I mean, face it, would anybody even notice if I disappeared tomorrow?”

    Alana’s breath escaped in a huff. “Well, that’s a mood. Not mine. I mean, the words aren’t mine, but I know what it’s like. And I bet you all do too.”

    Her voice was small.

    The room was quiet.

    And still. So still.

    It was like she was whispering into the void.

    She closed her eyes. “I’m here. I’m listening. Our lines are open.”

    Summary

    When a tragic suicide and a lot of bad luck plunges anxiety-ridden Evan Hansen into a situation he can't escape, he finds himself the only source of comfort for a grieving family coping with the death of their son, and in the case of Zoe Murphy (aka Evan's long-time crush), her abusive brother… under the belief that Evan was his best friend.

    Trauma-shaken Zoe struggles to accept there was a side to Connor she didn't know. But it's not until a rash, emotion-fueled split second decision on Evan's part that there's another confusing feeling thrown into the mix… and she's pretty sure she's falling for her brother's best friend.

    Follow Evan and Zoe’s climb on the slippery slope of romance under the pain and guilt of their situations in this alternate universe to Dear Evan Hansen, exploring the tale of a lie and a relationship that spirals out of control until Evan is given no choice but to do the one thing he wanted least in the whole world: tell the truth, and break Zoe's heart.

    Completely shattered, Zoe has to force herself through each day, barely functioning through her devastation... until she wakes up one morning mysteriously ill... and as it turns out, trusting Evan wasn't the only mistake she made.

    Summary

    It only took two disgruntled beeps of flooding alerts, one half-distressed viewing of the weather channel on TV, and three thunderclaps and preceding faint flashes of lightning for Larry to succumb to his baser instincts: he strode to the closest light switch and raised his voice to a non-neutral level, calling “Electronics unplugged and to the basement!”

    If he strained his ears, he could hear two distinct groans filtering from upstairs as his teenagers grumbled about being removed from their rooms.

    Summary

    “Is this some kind of… A Christmas Carol, dream-ghost bullshit?” Zoe demands. She’s so not interested in some kind of supernatural hallucination right now. She really, really needs to wake up. She is an adult. Zoe is an adult, she is thirty years old, she is not seventeen. She is not in high school. She cannot be back in high school.

    Dr. Sherman laughs. “Of course not. In those stories someone watches their past. I’m asking you to reimagine it.”

     

    Inspired by Being Erica, season 1.

    Summary

    They decide to keep cleaning out Connor’s room the week before Christmas. Why her mom chose that timing, Zoe has no idea. Maybe because Christmas without him feels off, messy and hollow and awkward. Maybe because now, unlike the past few months, they're facing what he left behind without Evan's lies there to ease the pain.

    Summary

    She stands at the shoreline, where the water and sand connect. When bystanding people walk by, they see a girl, hair covering her face, but a small smile curled on her lips. They would guess she would be enjoying the view. The sun was angled just enough so the water would still sparkle. Pastel pink, orange, and lilac highlights were blended into the sky, soft clouds scattered across it. It was beautiful.

    What they don’t see are the tears rolling down her freckled cheeks.

    ———

    Whenever Zoe gets sad or overwhelmed, she walked to a nearby beach.

    Summary

    It's startling, isn't it, how quickly everything falls to pieces? A carefully constructed house of cards stacked and curated like lies, a picture-perfect dollhouse of a life with the plastic smiles to match, the word love in its truest, sharpest form - isn't it unsettling how with one sentence, one explosion, they're all blown to shards and shrapnel?

    Breathing is always harder in the aftermath, with the dust settling and revealing a world left, otherwise, unchanged.

    Summary

    “Who are you? What do you want from me?”

    “Do you want your brother back or not?”

    “You didn’t answer my question.”

    “Those things are unimportant. Do you want your brother back?”

    Zoe paused for a moment. He had hurt her so much. He was a monster, and now he was gone. She should be happy. But she wasn’t. Why was it that she missed that monster? No, she didn’t miss him, she missed the Connor she had known when they were little; the Connor who had been her best friend. Slowly, she nodded her head.

    “I will give you the chance to get your brother back, the brother you used to know. I only have one condition.”

    “And what’s that?” Zoe inquired, stiffening as she grew more suspicious.

    “You have to save him.”

    Summary

    The dreams of a grieving girl, of mistakes that can't be mended.

    Of what is, what was, and what will never be.

    “I had that dream again,” Zoe finally says, breaking the silence.

    “The one where Connor’s alive.”

    Summary

    Even through the haze of grief right after Connor died, there were moments that stuck through. Moments of clarity, of happiness, of extreme sorrow. Moments when she could see everything through her old viewpoint, even when she could barely stand without feeling like she was falling.

    Even years later, Zoe remembered the endless arrival of cut flowers.

    Summary

    We crave human contact; not long-drifted, glassy eyes separated by a plane ride and a glint of glass and a thick layer of dirt and words printed on a page. There’s something quite different in finally finding a pair of eyes that look into yours and don’t look right through them.
