Ok I feel really dumb what do you mean Myka dies?
Sorry my bad! I’m writing this huge AU where Myka’s a ghost and Helena moves into her old house for unrelated reasons but then befriends her and eventually resurrects her. And I’m time-swapping all over the place to do this and arbitrarily decided to roll with the time frame 20 years for how long Myka’s been a ghost and then I’m using modern time for the present day/Helena setting and then making them college-aged so I can do more with the Mr. Bering angst which all means:
In this AU Myka was born in 1975 and died in 1994 as a nineteen year old (I am such a jerk). Then in 2013, an out-of-college-but-refusing-to-go-to-graduate-school(or get a corporate job) Helena takes a research project with Caturanga that brings them both to Colorado Springs to work with the local university. They rent Myka’s old house, books are stolen, disembodied voices are heard, and Helena works out there’s someone else sharing this house with them.
And yeah, I’ve been building this world up since itcameuponamidnightqueer reblogged a Casper gifset last October and I am now WAY too entrenched in this version of Myka. :S Early 90s teen Myka who gets pulled out of college and wants nothing more than to go back and finish her degree, but who instead dies through a tragic series of events (thoroughly entangled with but not at all caused by Mr. Bering and college and super not wanting to be home) and spends the next 20 years as an ignored ghost in her childhood home. Until Helena moves in and talks to her and resurrects her and Myka gets to struggle with healing and adapting and lots of healing and finally, FINALLY makes it back to college which is really all she wanted only to realize re-enrolling in college doesn’t make everything better, there’s still a lot to work through, and maybe she does have a lot to mourn. She did lose her entire damn life after all. (sob with me here)
But she has Helena now and Pete AND I WILL GIVE HER TRACY BACK I SWEAR so like I may have completely ruined her life, but I’m also helping her build a new one so it’s okay, right? Right?
nope. I’m still an asshole.
