Disclaimer: I own nothing here and am just doing this to pass the time until Season 3 starts.

Painting: Vincent Van Gogh, Wheatfield with Crows, 1890, Oil on canvas, 19.9 in × 40.6 in
A/N: Part four in a five-part series of one-shots focused on three of my favorite things: Nate, Sophie, and art. Although my brother has helped select the other paintings, this one was all my idea. Fifteen years ago, I had the opportunity to see this haunting painting at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, and I’ve carried it in my head ever since. That’s art.
Nate watched as the coffin was lowered into the ground. He could feel Maggie holding onto his arm, feel her tears falling on his hand. But he was numb. Beyond numb, actually, and well into shell-shocked territory.
