Someone Like Me
(Depressed!Grell x Reader)

“Stupid Shinigami…stupid rainy weather…stupid FROG!”  The frog that you had just yelled at for no apparent reason just stared at you, its eyes large and innocent.  It let out a guttural croak before hopping off of the lily-pad that it was previous sitting on into the deep green pond.  An anime sweat-drop slid down your forehead.  “Sorry, Mister Frog…it’s not your fault I’m in a bad mood.”  You watched the water for a moment.  After the ripples stilled you decided that the frog had either accepted your apology or was pouting underwater.  As you looked up at the gray clouds looming over the horizon, a small drop of water tapped against the tip of your nose.  You sighed.  ‘Better get going I guess…’

  “GRELL!”  You shouted at the top of your lungs.  You were getting tired of William nagging you, so you were going to make Grell do some work whether he wanted to or not.  Finally your anger boiled over so you kicked the door open.  

“______?!”  Grell stared at you with a dumbfounded expression, which quickly faded as he dried his eyes with a handkerchief.  Mascara stained his cheeks and his nose was ruby red.  His long, crimson hair was in a tangled up braid.  As strange as the scene was in general, the thing that really struck you as odd, was that he was on the floor in a sort of sideways position with one arm draped over his hip and the other propping his torso up.  You opened your mouth, then closed it.  You honestly didn’t know where to begin

“Even when you’re alone you wear makeup?”  Your eyebrow twitched.  “Why does that not surprise me…?”

Grell ignored your comment and let out a long groan.  He let his supporting arm collapse.  This, in turn, caused his head to bash against the floor with a loud thudding sound.  You cringed and rubbed your skull instinctively.

“W-What’s WRONG with you?”  You asked.  “You look…terrible!”

Grell gave you the most dead look you had ever seen.  If anything should have affected him, that last comment should have.  Instead he seemed totally indifferent.  You approached him cautiously.

“H-Hey…”  You knelt in front of him and scratched your neck awkwardly.  “Are you okay?  I hate seeing you like this…”

Grell yelped as if he had been struck by something and rolled over onto his back.  You jumped and reached out for him before you had time to think.  “Why don’t you just stab my heart?!”

You opened your mouth to speak, but Grell let out another moan.  He placed a gloved hand over his heart and sighed.  

“What the heck is wrong with you?!”  Your voice cracked, showing your increasing panic.  You had never seen Grell act so…insane!  You knew he was crazy, but in a flamboyant and fun way.  Now he just seemed…depressed (in an over-dramatic ‘Grell’ sort of way).  You let out a short squeak as he grabbed hold of your hand and yanked you so that you were on top of him.  Your face turned at least ten different shades of red.

“Red is really a lovely color on you.  Why don’t you ever wear it?”  Grell asked, his face still flat and expressionless.  You swallowed nervously.

“Th-That’s n-not relevant at the moment.”

“Oh, but it is!  You NEVER wear red!  You HATE dresses!  And you are always insulting my darling Bassy!”  Grell cried.  His brows furrowed.

“Yes.  And?”  You tried to move away from the crazy Shinigami, but he only held onto you tighter.  “Are you upset because of me?”

Grell sighed.  “Isn’t it obvious?”

“Well I can’t change who I am to make you happy.”  You frowned.  “I’m sorry, Grell.  I just can’t do it.”

Grell sobbed dramatically and grabbed your face in his hands, squishing your cheeks in the process.  “That’s just it!  I don’t want you to change!  If you did…I’d be heartbroken…”

“You look pretty heartbroken right now,” you said (as best you could since he was squishing your face).

Grell stared at you, his expression unreadable and slightly unnerving.  He sighed once more.  “How could I possibly have fallen in love with someone like you?”

At that moment, you could only describe your feelings as being utterly confused.  You weren’t sure if you should be insulted or happy.  You had always had a slight crush on Grell (despite his insane tendencies), but you never, EVER thought he would ever feel the same way about you.

“And more importantly,” Grell choked as a tear slid down his cheek.  “How could someone like you ever love someone like me?”

You smiled gently and used your free hand to wipe the tear from Grell’s cheek.  You tipped your forehead against his and let out a small laugh.

“I’ve had feelings for you for quite some time, Grell Sutcliff,” you admitted with a slight blush.  “You were just too obsessed with Sebastian to ever notice.”

Grell blinked a few times.  You closed your eyes and leaned closer, but before your lips could touch you were flung backwards onto your backside.  You winced and stood, but all you saw was a flash of red as Grell dashed past you towards the staircase.

“W-What the heck?!”  You snapped.

“I can’t let you see me like this!”  Grell called back in a shrill tone of voice.  “Go wait at the door and we’ll start over again!  I want this love confession to be PERFECT!”

Your eyebrow twitched slightly as you considered the consequence of your actions.  You let your shoulder slump.  “Something tells me it’s going to be a while before he gets ANY work done…”

THE END~
This was a request from ~Zinka .  I have never done a Depressed! fan-fic before so I hope this is okay.  I added some humor, so I hope you all don't mind :).  Thank you so much for reading and I look forward to reading your comments!  (For rules on requesting a fan -fic, please click the link bellow n_n)

This really is amazing. It's kinda hard to find really good Grell reader inserts. And I wish there were more, but with the amount you've made it really makes it worth looking.
