Somewhere along the way we grew up and the idea of what was home changed. It wasn’t what our parents built for us, it was what we made for ourselves. Those small moments of who buys the milk and who gets the mail, who makes you smile on a terrible day. Where we were, that was home. That was family. A place where we could shut the door and keep the world at bay. I know now what a ghost truly is: A thick silence in a room that fills up the space of someone you love.
When the end comes rushing up at you and everything that you thought was real starts to fall away, you consider the meaning of the life that you lived and you realize that the only thing that means a damn thing in the end, is what you loved. And you think of who you love and you let her take you home.
The day we moved in was the first day of my life. Before then, before them, I had no chance. I didn’t think I could feel human, feel love. No little things, coffee grounds, laundry days, sleeping late, living life: Thank you for every small moment of this world.”

I realize this might be something everybody else might find ridiculous to fangirl and drown in feels about, but the gif above was what killed me (and that when the episode was like 4 minutes in). Why? Because usually the human doesn’t fade out. They made a point of it fading out here and the “being” remaining. Because in the end it’s not important whether you are a human being or a supernatural being, it is about what you do, what choices you make and who you love. It simply is about: Living. Being.
