well this au blew up huh
"what do you do when you miss phil?" ghostbur asks one day, sprawled on his back in the field of flowers that he's been planting since the goddess of death brought life back to wilbur's wasteland of an afterlife.
she smiles sadly, settling down next to him and letting her wings curl in around herself, almost like a blanket.
"you miss them, hm?" she asks, staring up at the sky. There's clouds gathering on the horizon, low-slung and grey, and there's a cool breeze that rustles her skirts.
"so much." ghostbur sits up, wraps his arms around himself. "i know it wasn't perfect, but i liked being there with everyone. phil, tommy, techno, ranboo-"
"it must be hard," she says, reaching out with one of her wings to pull him close. ghostbur settles against her side, soft and warm as she absently pets his messy, fluffy hair.
it's so much like wilbur's.
"i just want to see them again," ghostbur says softly, and whatever resolve kristin had left crumbles.
she stands up, takes a deep breath, and draws from the pool of magic at her core, energy rippling outward as it reshapes the rolling hill, carving out a shallow pool that fills with clear water, reflecting the grey clouds overhead. ghostbur watches, mesmerized, as she floats above it, feet dangling towards the ground as her arms sweep through the air and she murmurs in a language older than time, the song of the void and the universe tangling together until at last the surface of the lake settles and the goddess of death floats back to the ground.
"come and look," she says, standing at the lake.
"-should be more careful, mate," philza's saying, but there's a laughing lilt to his voice as he scolds a technoblade who at least has the decency to look ashamed.
"i said i was sorry-"
"hey, guys!" niki says, the smell of warm bread drifting off the lake.
mumza's stomach rumbles, and ghostbur bursts out laughing, really laughing, and the goddess of death feels more alive than she has since the last time her husband had stopped to visit.
she whistles a simple, short tune, and a large black crow lands on her outstretched hand, tilting its head at her in confusion.
"go steal me two of those pastries," she says to it. "and tell my idiot husband to put on sunblock before he turns red."
the crow flies off with a caw, diving through the rippling water and emerging on the other side. philza laughs as it settles on his shoulder, cawing at him before taking flight again, this time to dive-bomb the basket of pastries.
"no!" niki shouts. "shoo, shoo!"
"it's fine, mate," phil says with a laugh. "it's just my wife. she wants a pastry."
"YOU HAVE A WIFE?!"
mumza chuckles as the crow flies back, two still-warm pastries precariously held in its beak. she sighs at her husband and his friends, bickering kindly as they walk. her hand drifts out over the water, and the image ripples and fades.
"here," she says, taking one of the pastries and reaching out to hand it to ghostbur. "i thought-"
and then she has an armful of crying ghost, face buried in her arms as she tries to not drop the pastries into the grass.
"you can't go visit them," she warns him. "if you try to jump in the lake while the window's open, the window will just break, and you'll get wet."
ghostbur nods, sniffling as he wipes away steaming tears.
"but if you want to see them," she says, "all you have to do is look."

How do you plan to mix your culture with your husband’s to create new traditions, etc? It’s so sweet to see how interested you are in his culture😭 Love your blog btw!!
Thank you for the love!! It means a lot <3
- we plan to celebrate holidays from both cultures. Christmas, Chinese New Year, mid autumn festival, Easter etc. Let them know all these things are equally important and a part of their lives
- language. Have them grow up speaking both English and Chinese, so when they’re older they will speak both fluently and not feel like they’re ‘missing out’ on any part of either culture
- our children will visit both China and England regularly. We aim to raise them in China at least until high school, since learning to write Chinese would be MUCH easier in a school setting, but I’d love to have them travel to the U.K. often too. And once they’re older, they can decided themselves if they want to continue onto a Chinese high school to go to the U.K.
- give them Chinese names. A lot of half Asian kids get given very ‘white’ sounding names, and I see a lot of them online express upset at that. I don’t want my kids having to change their names to make it easier for white people to say. Chinese names are so beautiful and have a lot of meaning, I want them to be able to enjoy that.
Of course there will be many other things, such as enjoying a lot of Chinese food, learning about history and culture etc, but there are the most important for me!!

Day 7- May 11th
Hello my love. I’ll start off by telling you our boy started this new thing where he sits and watches tv. If there is an animal on screen he going up to the tv and trying to sniff their butts ahahahaha!! They still wait at the door for you every day around 5pm.
I plan to send your mom that painting I wanted to give her for a long while now. It’s the yellow sunflower one. I also plan to send out those sorry letters I wrote in the next coming week or so. On Saturday I am having lunch with E and T. They want to make sure I’m doing ok and to discuss how we might be able to stay together because they love us together and you helped them. The neighbor in the back, the white dude was hoping you a healthy recovery today. He said we were a cute couple and we have all been there. He wishes for the best haha. My hair is currently light pastel blue and silver and it’s slowly just turning blonde on its own so less work for me haha. I am almost starting to eat normal again. But now my body won’t keep it down no matter what I eat. Our boy ate Ozzy are the remote to the tv and I spent a dang hour trying to program a new remote to get it to work again. Oh! I found a home for mystery cat and she’s very happy there with no dogs lol. Rose wonders where you are. She has been searching the yard by the gate for you and waiting by the side window and meowing :( I’ve been watching a lot of nature documentaries because it’s the only thing that kinda doesn’t remind me of you. I learned about a frog fish that looked like a fat fish with hair like a dog and walks on its two fins like a cartoon waddling weirdo haha. There are also sausage trees in the safari that do not have sausage lol but flowers that feed a lot of animals haha. It’s been pretty sunny here in Long Beach. Overly hot in the day but overcast during the morning. Home really doesn’t feel like home with you you. You are home to me. I read our old love lettered to each other today and I didn’t cry but smiled so big. They were sweet funny and cute letters. Oh how I miss you. I wonder how your groups are going…cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, reprocessing, music and art therapy, yoga, recreational therapy, Psychotherapy, Contingency management, Rational emotive behavioral therapy, and Substance abuse counseling. I’ve been reading up on everything I can about Al-anon, AA, rehab, recovery, healing, rehabilitation, counseling, therapy, manifestations, codependency, boundaries, healthy coping, growing, loving ones self, the 12 steps, anxiety/depression, group therapy, and mending broken relationships. 60 days to recovery, Healing yourself and your marriage,Stories from life experience. That’s the title of the book I’m writing hahah jkjk. I’ve been journaling and reading a lot lately since I do not have any social media and it’s been very relaxing honestly. Helps me focus on me and my recovery. I woke up in the middle of the night sobbing about you. I called my mom and she calmed me down. She reassured me that you love me and are safe and will come back wanting me again. I sure hope that is true. I’ve been trying to focus on being in the moment, my breath, controlling my anxious/depression thoughts, slowing down and relaxing. Being one with my mind and body. I went and looked in a antique store today. I found some really cool AC/DC, Aerosmith, and jimmy Hendrix records all priced fairly well. So I bought them. I also got a book from the 50’s named “1000 ways to please your wife” haha!! Today in therapy I discussed self love, taking responsibility, letting go and moving forward. I have hope for the future and us. Know I fell in love in the world in you and love you more then anything. -Love your one & only wife
