    Summary

    When the Hargreeves traveled back to the past, they promised Vanya they’re going to help to help her control her powers, that they won't let Reginald hurt her or lock her away again. Things got better between all of them, and each number grew closer to one another. Klaus only wished that someone promised him that, too, when he had to return to the crypt, when he was haunted by those his siblings killed, when he was dismissed as a junkie and a disappointment. Oh, well. It seems that history will always repeat itself.

    Summary

    When Ben first visits him from beyond the grave, Klaus nearly wakes every corpse in the vicinity with his screams.

    An exploration of Ben and Klaus' life after Ben's death and how they arrived where they were at the start of season 1.
    I love these boys and their dynamic is one of my favourite parts of the show, plus no one understands Klaus' powers and it heckin' frustrates me so there'll be plenty of that :)
