Word of the Day Challenge: Saudade

Spoilers for: Being Human 3×01, Lia

Saudade – a nostalgic longing to be near something or someone that is distant, that has been loved and lost

Disclaimer: Don’t own Being Human

She missed Bristol. It didn’t really make sense for her to. After all, she had died in that house; she had been murdered in that house.

But she had also met her two best friends in that house. She had learned more about life being dead in that house than she had in twenty-two years of being human.

So that was where her saudade lay: not in the place, necessarily, but for a simpler time, just the four of them, in Bristol.
