    Summary

    Natalie Goodman believed in ghosts. Not the dead ones, though. Because if Gabe was a ghost, then surely he would have rescued her or killed her or something. But living, breathing ghosts with a pulse. Those were the kind of ghosts she believed in.

    She was a ghost.

    Summary

                  It had been a spur of the moment decision. Gabe had held her hand gently, gave her the keys to his truck and some cash, telling her to go get pizza for movie night. She didn’t know that that was the last time she’d see him.
                  Some song had come on the radio, someone gently singing about leaving home, leaving their horrible house behind and going somewhere new.
                  She hadn’t thought about it. She pulled onto the highway and gassed it. She hadn’t considered Gabe, she hadn’t considered Henry, nor her parents, nor her boyfriend’s parents. She had just drove.

    Summary

    //FLAGGED AS MATURE DUE TO SUICIDE//

                  He swallows thickly. He hadn’t told Natalie to do it, but she blamed him anyway. He’s not sure if he can be pissed about that or not.

                  She moves and sits on her gravestone, picking up a stone. “Henry’s Jewish.”

                  Gabe blinked. “Huh?”

                  “Henry’s Jewish. Instead of leaving flowers, Jews leave stones, because stones don’t rot away and die.” She turns it over in her palm. Henry loved crystals. This one was a rose quartz, she thinks. She listened to him talk about them all the time. Symbolizes love, and that shit.

    Summary

    Natalie narrowed her eyes at her brother. “You’re telling me what?”
    “I don’t like them!” Gabe insisted, sitting back and crossing his arms. “What about that is so hard to understand?”
    “With all due respect, which isn’t much, you’re a fucking idiot Gabriel.”
    “I’m just saying that I don’t have a crush on my best friend! Sue me.”
    Henry sat back, raising his eyebrows. Wow, he was enjoying this. “You’re askin’ them to that dance.”
    “Doesn’t mean I like them. Natalie asked you to prom.”

    Summary

    [“Put the pills down.”]
    She stares at them. This is all really fucking ironic, isn’t it? Her life mirrors her mother’s. She isn’t Natalie, she’s just ‘Diana Goodman: Take Two’!
    [“Nat, get out of the tub. Don’t do what I think you’re about to do.”]
    She can see it now:
    Goodman, Natalie
    Discovered unconscious at home.
    Multiple razor wounds to wrists and forearms. Self inflicted.
    Celine rinse, sutures and gauze. IV antibiotics. Isolated, sedated, and restrained.
    The girl sits up and looks over the various bottles of pills. Who would think that she would kill herself before she could even legally drink?

    Summary

    He touches her like she’s something holy. But she’s not, she’s not, she’s not. She never will be.
    She doesn’t want to be holy either. But fuck, if it isn’t addicting.
    There’s something holy about Him, though. About His calloused hands, His chapped lips, His velvety hair.
    She’s cut open with a jagged piece of the porcelain that she shattered on the ground when she was five (she realized then her parents didn’t care about her. Because if they did, they would have helped her clean it up, or at least told her not to pick the pieces up with her hands.) and Henry was the only one who noticed the wound, gushing scarlet blood, dark as wine, and stopped the bleeding, cleaned it, and dressed it.

    Summary

    Henry doesn’t stop. “In the end, you’re the one causing issues for you family. Do you think that Diana doesn’t know Gabriel is dead? No. She’s got severe trauma from the death of her child, and on top of the bipolar, it’s causing the delusions and hallucinations. She needs help, not for you to convince her to fry her brain out.” He turns to Natalie, in her room, pursing his lips, then back to Dan. “ECT doesn’t actually help most of the time. It causes memory loss. But you knew that, didn’t you?”
    Now, Henry takes a step forward, and it thoroughly unnerves Dan. “You have a hope that your wife will forget your son, Gabriel. You won’t voice it, but you do.” The stoner takes out a notepad. “I’m going to recommend you the therapist that I saw to-”
    “You have no right to talk to me like this!”
    “And you have no right to talk to your wife and Nat the way you do."

    Summary

    Letting someone see her scars would be equivalent to making herself completely vulnerable. It was a display of ‘hey, I’m fucked up as hell. I’m letting you know this, and I’m showing you that I’ve been fucked up for years. And I trust you with this.’

    Was she willing to show Henry that side of her? Was she willing to lay herself bare to the man she had so rapidly fallen for?

    Summary

    Unlike Diana, Natalie knows very well that Gabe is dead. That doesn't mean she can't see him though, and just because he's invisible to everyone else doesn't mean he doesn't exist.

    Summary

    In spite of all the signs that have been pointing her towards the truth, the answer to the question she didn’t know she had, for the last sixteen years, there's still a knot tightening in her stomach the more she thinks about it. She's not sure if she's feeling betrayal, anger, panic, or some mix of all three, but what it all comes down to is two simultaneously simple and complicated facts: she's adopted and her life as she's lived it until today is a lie.

    an AU in which nearly everything is the same except Natalie is adopted

    Summary

    Henry smiled at her, his eyes glimmering. "Hey," he greeted.

     

    "...Hey," Natalie responded with a soft smile that only grew after his next comment.

     

    "You look like a star. A vision in blue."

    Summary

    “She’s certainly not Gabe.” That’s the sentence Natalie Goodman has heard the most in her life, probably more than her own name or even “I love you.” She’s heard it a thousand ways from a hundred different people, or so she’d guess if anyone ever asked.

    my take on how Natalie might feel about Gabe looming over her relationship with life
