Requested: Hi! Can I request one-shot with Diego and his s/o being in established relationship and she helps him and his siblings with the whole mess of Umbrella Academy house (apocalypse is over, the world is saved but they’re left will all the stuff that you have to deal with after someone dies like cleaning the house etc)? -anon
A/N: Also based off the song Youth by Daughter. Really gave me a few tears because it reminds me so much of them. I also hope I did this request some justice.
TW: Mentions of close death experience, loosing loved ones, etc.
Shadows settle on the place that you left
Our minds are troubled by the emptiness.
The aftermath was devastating. A home that seven people watch crash to the ground. A place that was once refuge. A sanctuary. A house filled with many memories. The good times and the bad. Diego could only focus on the bad. The only good ones he has was with his mother.
The six heroes stood in front of the wreckage. Plus one. Diego’s lover, Y/N. They all stood there quiet. Diego just stared, thinking about Grace. How she could still be there. She could still be alive, right? Diego was snapped out of thought by Y/N grabbing his hand. He looked over at her, instantly feeling at home.
Yes, home. She was his home.
And if you’re still breathing, you’re the lucky ones
‘Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs
Y/N placed her arm on Allison’s shoulder, pulling her into a hug. Allison’s voice was still gone. Breathing felt like a chore to her. She couldn’t get the feeling out of her stomach. The feeling of gasping for air. The feeling of your life ending, right before you. The warm liquid running down your chest. The dread.
Allison started to cry. Y/N held her closer. Y/N mourned with her. “It’s okay, Allison. Everything will work out. I promise.”

The lovers that went wrong
Vanya felt destroyed inside. Y/N could feel it from miles away actually. She also didn’t blame Vanya for what happened. Her powers were unbeknownst of. And she was lied to her entire life. Been told she’ll never amount to anything. Too ordinary.
“Vanya, you’re the complete opposite.” Y/N told her, holding her face in her hands. Vanya’s eyes watered. She sniffled, trying to hold the emotions back. Y/N enveloped her in a hug. Vanya was hesitate at first. But she remembered what home felt like. She knew why Diego loved Y/N so much.
One day we will reveal the truth
That one will die before he gets there
They were picking up the pieces of Ben’s statue. Y/N made it her mission to put it back together or at least replace the memorial. She made it a promise. Ben saved all of them. Diego specifically. If Diego died, Y/N wouldn’t know what to do with herself. Diego is her rock. The glue that holds her insanity together.
Ben admired her. She was the person that the family needed in this desperate time. He observed how much joy she brought to everyone. Ben wished that he could actually talk to her, not through Klaus.
“Klaus, I hope Diego puts a ring on it. He deserves it.” Ben said. Klaus smiled. “I hope so too, Ben.”
If you’re still bleeding, you’re the lucky ones
‘Cause most of our feelings, they are dead and they are gone
Five to Y/N was interesting. He was ridiculously smart. Y/N at first thought that he despised her. However, he found her refreshing. “Someone to have an actual intelligent conversation with.” He would say. Y/N’s face would turn red. It would turn even more red when Five said to Diego. “Keep her, please. I like this one. Better than the rest of all of you.”
Everyone was shocked, actually. Klaus begged you to teach him your ways, making you feel even more embarrassed.
Collecting pictures from a flood that wrecked our home
It was a flood that wrecked this home.
Y/N’s relationship with Luther was… difficult. It was hard because of Diego. Diego constantly would talk down on his brother and vice versa. Y/N, however, was nice to him. She showed everyone she ever came across kindness. Kindness was something she was taught at a young age and has taught others.
Luther liked Y/N. She taught the Academy more about themselves then they thought they knew.
To distract ourselves from ever missing them
But I’m forever missing him
Klaus got along extremely well with Y/N. Y/N helped Klaus with a lot of things. Helping him get and stay sober to letting him cry on her shoulder about Dave.
He remembers when he told her about Dave. She smiled and said, “That, my friend, is love. You loved him. He felt it, trust me.” Klaus’s eyes watered. The Seance choked out a sob. Y/N hugged him tightly.
“Have you found love, Y/N?” He asked. Y/N nodded her head, pulling away from Klaus. “Yes. I found Diego and he found me. I don’t know where I would be without him.”
Setting fire to our insides for fun
Y/N comforted every single one of them. She brought out the best out of every single one of them. She helped them in every way possible. She loved them. Just her being there to help clean up the mess of the Academy was enough.
Y/N kissed Diego’s cheek. “C’mon. We’ve got stuff to do. I’ll be with you every step of the way.”
We are the reckless
We are the wild youth.
