The person you used to be still tells you what to do
Let the phrases “not my thing” or “not for me” become red flags
to you whenever you hear yourself say them. How old was the person who
decided that? Was it even a decision, or just an emotional reaction? How
much do you really know about it?

lo0o0ony_lauren: something to ponder.
Once, in the late nineteen-thirties, Mitchell expressed to Herrick his shock that mankind could be so abominably stupid – so stupid, in fact, that the generation of young men he himself had been sent to hell and back with could grow up, get old and fat and forget, and send a whole new generation of young men to their muddy graves. He did so thusly: "That fucking idiotic bunch of cunts!"

Herrick was sat across the room, on the other bed; the two of them were, at this time, renting rooms in Marylebone, close to the Queen’s Hall. Herrick liked the music, listening with his eyes closed and a look of intense concentration on his face, and Mitchell liked the people. Or something of theirs, anyway. It was about a quarter past eleven, they had the curtains closed, and the second world war had just been announced over the wireless.

Smiling his inscrutable smile, Herrick withdrew a cigarette from the packet in his pocket, lit it, and inhaled. He licked the corner of his mouth. "How charming it is," he said, voice low, "That you still find their innate dull-mindedness surprising."

strangeumbrella: Fic: Many (Many, Many) Happy Returns (George/Mitchell)
"Relax," says Mitchell. "Seriously. I don't really like cake."

"What is wrong with you?" says George, caught somewhere between genuine distress and shock.

"Have you got an hour?"

angelgazing: fic: the adventure starts here - being human - pg
George is always shaking the night before; trembling, when the moon is looming close, the way addicts do, when the next hit isn't near enough.

Mitchell's on the floor, next to him, because George needs room, but he doesn't need space. Mitchell waves off another cup of tea for him, but catches her sleeve before she can get too far away.

She's stopped being surprised that they can touch her, but she hasn't stopped appreciating it.

there are no haunted places - by ozmissage - fandom Being Human [Archive of Our Own]
Author's Summary:

Each in their own way, they all must begin the slow, unenviable task of moving on.

Rule of Three - by valderys - fandom Being Human [Archive of Our Own]
Author Summary:

Once upon a time a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost went out into the world to seek their fortune. Fairytales are simplistic, but it doesn't make them *wrong*.

[A bit cracky, but fun.]

lo0o0ony_lauren: climb the wall to make the sun rise in time, but the night had already begun.
He wondered when it was going to be a good time to mention that he needed glasses and he'd left them somewhere, or that they didn’t know each other, or that he had, in fact, spent the previous night running round in a forest, mauling things, and Mitchell appeared to have forgotten that. In fact, he was right in the midst of this thought process when Mitchell said, "I’m a vampire, by the way."

lozenger8: watch your life slide out of view
“Come on, let’s get groovy,” Mitchell says with a self-mocking purr. He stands, grabs hold of George’s shirtsleeve, gestures at Annie, and starts walking to the dancefloor.

George really can’t dance. He has no co-ordination, very little timing. He feels awkward and foolish and undeniably disenfranchised from the wider clubbing scene. And judging from the way he’s shuffling from foot to foot, Mitchell’s much the same.

Author Summary:

So, are you dead too then? Vampire? Werewolf? It's all right, you know, nothing to be embarrassed about! Not with this group.

[Sort of sweet and creepy/haunting? Also, the sequel is a Torchwood crossover. -L]

The Constant - by tokenblkgirl - fandom Being Human [Archive of Our Own]
Mitchell eyes the DVDs in his hand, going back and forth between Vertigo and My Fair Lady for movie night while letting George’s statement go unacknowledged. Not because he doesn’t care, he just knows there’s more on the way. George has never been one for brevity or dramatic pauses.

"We’ve had every single combination of toppings and sauces known to man delivered to our door—not once, but three times in the past month Mitchell, and I can’t do it anymore, I just can’t. No man should ingest that much cheese in one lifetime, it’s not natural."

[Annie = awesome. Also, Audrey Hepburn. -L]

xahra99: In God's Country
It was six days, two months and twenty-two years since Mitchell had died, some ninety miles south of the Flanders fields in which he now found himself. The landscape was far prettier than he recalled. It was all a world away from the marshy shell-scarred craters of the Somme.

The war felt the same.

sparky77: Being Human Fic: Self-Empowerment for the Modern Ghost
Annie was never one for philosophy. She doesn’t care about the sound of one hand clapping or a tree falling in the forest, but she can’t help but wonder: if a ghost haunts a house and nobody sees it, is she still real?

She hates being needy and she hates being afraid, but she’s not ready to go, and she needs them. But they don’t need her. It’s not fair, but it’s not like there’s a place for ghosts to register complaints, and if there was, she’s positive it’s no place she wants to go.

Stray - by packmentality - fandom Being Human [Archive of Our Own]
There is a cat in the house.

Not only is there a cat in the house, which is inexplicable in itself as both Annie and Mitchell swear up and down they weren't the one to let it in, but Mitchell seems to find the fact that there is a cat in the house extremely hilarious.

Or, more likely, what Mitchell finds hilarious is the fact that, while the cat doesn't seem at all bothered by the likes of any of them, George is utterly terrified.

In Recovery - by WiliQueen - fandom Being Human [Archive of Our Own]
He sat down and dug into the cereal, explaining around mouthfuls, "I tried to learn once, but I maybe possibly accidentally set fire to Josie's kitchen."

She suspected there were any number of things he had tried once. For someone who was theoretically going to live forever, he didn’t have much of an attention span sometimes. Still, the one thing he kept trying, despite a growing catalog of failures, was the one that really mattered. She had to respect that.

He’d left the newspaper she’d bought at the center of the table, and Nina considered a moment before sliding it toward him. "There’s a list of names in there. From the train."
