Klaus: Are you sure you’re getting enough sleep?
Five: Sometimes I close my eyes when I sneeze
Klaus: Are you sure you’re getting enough sleep?
Five: Sometimes I close my eyes when I sneeze
7y/o Luther: Why is the moon following me?
Person: I’m here for you.
Vanya: thanks :) I’m going through a rough time so it means alot.
Vanya: and sorry, i lost all of my contacts. Who is this?
Person: this is your uber driver. I’m here to pick you up.
half an hour, people
The siblings refer to Luther as “Spacey” when he has a fever <3
Didn’t beef up until he was around 16; until then he was just a super-strong lanky beanpole.
Always wore ill-fitting clothes because he was constantly outgrowing them
Hit his growth spurt first but his voice dropped last
Still tried to put on his “leader voice” but everyone just made fun of him
Metabolism for days
Got hairy first: gave the others fake tips on how to grow body hair (canonically told Klaus that licking a 9 volt battery would give him pubes)
It was literally one chest hair
Extra hair = extra smelly, but he was too proud to admit it. Allison had to rumor him to start wearing deodorant.
Tried to grow a “beard” at age 15 but Reginald made him shave it (one of his only good parenting decisions)
Stuffed his pants on the daily until he was 16
Started wearing a training bra before Vanya and she absolutely milked it for attention. She’d always “accidentally” let the strap fall
Also started wearing makeup first; looked like an absolute clown for a few years until she got it right. To be fair, it was the early 2000s.
Reginald forced her to straighten her hair with relaxer for a good few years; when she left home she finally got her curls back
before it got trendy
She got her first period on a mission and all the stupid boys made fun of her. She locked herself in her room and cried. When she woke up there was a box of Always, a heating pad, pain killers and chocolate at the foot of her bed. And a note from Vanya that said “boyz r dumb xD” (it was 2003).
Licked a 9 volt battery at age 8 but he still didn’t grow any facial or body hair until age 18
Stole all of Allison’s old bras whenever she went up a size (but only the fun ones). Same with her skirts and pretty much all of her clothes.
Breaking his jaw fucked up his teeth too, so he wore braces from ages 12-16
The horniest and the reason all of Vanya’s hand lotion (violin blisters!) kept going missing Did not need to stuff his pants
He and Luther grew at the same rate because twins; height first, then voice
but Five poofed off into the apocalypse so they never noticed
Metabolism for days just like his twin bro :)
They were literally always hungry; frequent secret late night twin peanut butter and marshmallow sandwich parties because they have the same taste buds
Vanya would join in when she had period cravings. That’s how she knew it was his favorite </3
His voice dropped first, but he was so shy and quiet that they didn’t even realize right away
The bentacles went through puberty with him. Mood swings and all.
The bentacles went into heat
Emo as fuck; put a white streaks in his hair and made Allison rumor Reginald into not seeing it
Had the worst mood swings
Jealous of Allison’s titties; she wore push-up bras until she was 16 (and realized no one cared)
But she got her period first so at least she had that… until she started getting it twice a month with the worst cramps and cravings
Horrible cystic acne; Allison taught her how to cover it up with concealer but that just made it worse
Finally she went on Accutane and it was Rough™ but worth it in the end, but by then everyone was leaving anyway.
She found out years later that it was actually all due to endometriosis. Woops.
Dave’s Friend: Hey, why is Klaus crying on the floor?
Dave: He’s drunk.
Dave: He asked if i had a boyfriend. i said yes.
Friend: But…. he is your boyfriend.
Dave: i fucking know.
luther: where are you going?
five: to either get coffee or commit a felony
five: i’ll decide in the car
Topic: Powers you’d have
Luther: Destabilizer - Allows you to pull at peoples tendons and muscles and throw them off balance. You’re able to somewhat control them this way but it scares you a bit to do so as you don’t want to accidentally snap or rip any
Diego: Repel - Allows you to repel physical objects with a protective shield that you can put out with your hands. When concentrating you can sometimes form two separate ones in front of each hand. You can control if it hits the ground or phases through it to allow more mobility
Allison: Sonar - Similar in voice powers, your power allows you to emit different frequencies from your throat. You were only able to do this once in a life or death situation, but one time you emitted a frequency that was so painful it killed only your attacker and left the other hargreeves deaf for at least a week
Klaus: Gas - You release mysterious gases from the pores of your body that range from a knock out gas, a poison gas, and a dense fog like gas that distorts hearing
Five: Shadow travel - You can transform into a dark shadow like creature that hides in other peoples shadows. You hope to be able to control people using this monster you transform into someday
Ben: Plane hopping - Allows you to create and hop to different planes. This allows you to see and stay with Ben
Vanya: Artists Reality - When you draw something, you can make it come to life and bend it to your will. You often use Rats or Snakes for infiltration and make Lions or bigger animals so you two can cuddle/for full front attacks

My attempt at expressing Luther’s emotions at finding out that his mission was a lie and his father couldn’t stand the sight of his “mutant” son. His whole world broke apart in front of his eyes.

Klaus, walking down the street to get to the store because the boas are on sale.
I have seen multiple times now people throwing around blame about whose actions lead to the apocalypse but…almost everyone did something that led to it.
Luther- Is an asshole to Vanya and put her in the vault.
Diego- Rejected Vanya, and didn’t want much to do with her.
Allison- Ignored Vanya for a long time, and then when they started getting along, butted into Vanya’s life where Vanya didn’t want her- even if Allison was right.
Klaus- Stole that box from Reginald’s office and threw the notes out that Leonard used against Vanya.
Five- Was so focused on what he thought was going to cause the apocalypse he ended up paying very little attention to Vanya- who arguably missed him the most.
Ben- He has done nothing wrong ever in his life.
Pogo- Knew what Reginald had done and refused to tell the Vanya, even though it probably would have helped her significantly, and brought her closer together with her siblings.
Reginald is the MOST to blame here. Luther learned everything he knows from Reginald and doesn’t really know better. Luther, Diego, Allison, and Klaus didn’t really know her because they were never allowed to spend time with her- she is essentially a stranger to them. Five seemingly spent the most time with her, which is why she missed him so much when he disappeared. Reginald is the one who caused the Apocolypse, and the children had no idea that they were letting it happen. Even Pogo- Pogo was created by Reginald- all he knows is to be submissive to Reginald. Reginald abused all of these people and all of their downfalls are because of how they were treated or raised.
The show is about family. The Apocolypse, in a demented way, was caused by the WHOLE (living) FAMILY.
Luther: Klaus, you’re in charge while I’m away.
Klaus: Alright! I’m your man!
Luther: Keep the others out of trouble.
Klaus: … Okay, I’m kinda your man.
Luther: Don’t do anything stupid.
Klaus: You need another man.

Something has been bugging me since I’ve finished season 1 of Umbrella Academy and went to see the content of the fandom. This might take long to explain, but well, I’ll go ahead.
The thing is. I love Klaus Hargreeves. I freaking adore this dork. He’s so funny and fascinating, he has sick lines, and his character development rules. I’d protect him with my life. Like I already mentioned, even before I knew the show, I saw drawings and screenshots of him on my dashes and I knew I was going to fall in love with the character.
But as far as I adore him, I know he has flaws. I can see how bad it must be to deal with a drug addict like him. Actually, while the Hargreeves kids were growing up, I can perfectly imagine him stealing money, disappearing, lying to his brothers and sisters, being disrespectful, needing attention and avoiding it at the same time. We see Allison and Luther knowing that he was going to steal, in episode one. And for all we see, everyone is used to what he’s doing because of his addiction. I can imagine them actually trying to help him when they were younger, and trying to reason him, but him being an addict, these attempts remaining useless and unsuccessful.
And if they were in a loving family, yeah, maybe it wouldn’t have made really sense that they don’t try harder to help him getting rid of his addiction. But they were in an unhealthy home, with an abusive father. So they grew up and parted ways, they all had their own lives and struggles, they all learnt to manage alone, Klaus included, as adults. More or less.
Except for one person. Luther. Luther stayed near his father and did what Reginald wanted him to do. Luther did this because he thought it would be for the greater good. He trusted his father, because even though he was a cold and distant old man, he had faith in him and in his words. He had hopes in his father where everyone else had let go since a long time. And you know what? He was wrong. He followed the wrong person. And he was probably doing it for not-so-heroic purposes, because he was the Number One and thought it was his duty, he probably fulfilled all of this because of pride. But the thing is. It’s how he has been raised. He wasn’t aware of his father abusing Klaus and Vanya when they were younger, but when he was given against his will a monstrous body he hated and felt extremely bad about, he didn’t stop following his father’s orders. Maybe it would have been different if he went through similar things that Klaus and Vanya had to live.
But in any case, when he learns his father lied to him and didn’t care whatsoever for him and the mission he spent literal years of his life focusing on, when he learns that despite being Number One, what he thought was an important duty he was accomplishing for everyone was just some useless purpose, yes, his world falls apart. Yes, he starts being unthinking, uncompassionate. He lost the hope he had, the thing that was giving him steadiness and mostly the thing he grew up on. His siblings saw through their father, they never had hope in him and let go a while ago. Not Luther.
Klaus got kidnapped and tortured, went through war, met someone there he felt in love with and saw him die in front of him. He suffered. He did. And it was an awful thing for him, and for us to watch it. Why didn’t his family wonder where he went, when he’d been kidnapped and was being tortured? Why didn’t they ask themselves that? Where their brother, a junkie, always going here and there, who went to jail and probably loads of times on rehab, where this brother they haven’t seen in years went? Why would they have wondered?
Sure, when we know what happened to him, as viewers of a show, it’s horrible and we wish we could just go into this screen and help this man and protect him. But he didn’t expect his siblings to look for him. He says that himself to Cha-cha and Hazel. Because when he was addict, during these years of being apart from his family, he was alone. He managed. He dealt with himself and his addiction. It’s his life. His struggle. Not theirs. And this time? Well of course he needed the help of a distraction to escape, but he managed again, didn’t he? And he went through war. If anything, I find it kinda… good for the character. He relies on drugs, yes, but not on his siblings. He can take care of himself. Sure, I want him to be taken care of and cared for, but if anything, I’d more gladly watch it being a relationship his siblings and him decided to share rather than an emotional dependency. For now, it didn’t happen, but maybe he’ll hug his siblings, in season 2, maybe he will be able to talk about his problems and being listened to? We’ll see.
Luther, on the other hand, had an emotional dependency to his father. And after this link broke, he saw Allison, the person he loves and cares for the most, almost die because of Vanya. Now, guys, just be aware. I love Vanya. I love every single member of the Hargreeves family (except Reginald he’s trash) equally (almost equally (I mean, Klaus ffs)). But going through facts, even if I don’t approve at all the idea of making Vanya relive her childhood trauma, I can’t… blame Luther for that moment he locked her up. He lose trust in his father and in Pogo not so long ago, and Vanya did hurt Allison, even if it wasn’t on purpose. He couldn’t know what was going to happen. He couldn’t trust the people he’s been relying to for years anymore. So, Vanya? Of course he wasn’t going to listen to her and rather was going to put Allison in safety.
This post is very long, but I wanted to publish it, even if no one reads it, because I needed to make this point. No one is to blame. Everyone follows a path that leads to decisions, character growth, issues and development, all different and having different causes. I’m not saying you should like Luther, or that you shouldn’t not like him (if that makes sense). Anyone can love the character they want, obviously, I’ll never think otherwise. But you can’t compare Klaus’ struggles with Luther’s ones. Not in a serious tone, I mean.
I just want people to think of this. You don’t have to like Luther at all. It’s fair that you don’t like him, he’s not the most lovable character ever. But I’m tired of seeing essentially hatred for him.
