Story Notes: Heya! So this is sort of a weird fic baby of mine I wrote for SAD's Spooky September. It explores the five stages of grief with a Spuffy twist to it. I wrote my bachelor's thesis about grief in 2016, so this has been an interest of mine for a while. I am also notoriously bad at sustaining a spooky vibe in my writing, so I defaulted to "ghosts are spooky, right?" and this story was born.
Please heed the tags, warnings and categories.
Complete at 5 chapters. Will update pretty quickly.
