Because truth is important. So is pissing off Naru, which is why Yasuhara and Mai are proud to bring you the unseen case files of SPR. Heavily N/M, background A/T and implied M/Y, but only because it annoys the Boss-man.

Veritas is latin for 'truth'. I won't be commenting for the rest of this fic unless specific questions come up; I'll leave you in the capable hands of our narrator, but I will say now that I don't own Ghost Hunt, I am not making profit from this story (indeed, it's costing me a fortune), and updates will be once a week, on a Monday - time will change, day will not.
Hey, Yasuhara here! Guess what I found in the archives! Naru's personal notes (not transcribed by Mai) on several key cases. So, being the kind, sensitive person I am, I got her to interpret his awful handwriting (just because he has a doctorate, does it mean he has to write like a doctor?), and here I present them to you. Because, who doesn't want a Naru's-eye-view of the world?
Hey, I'm in here too!
Yes, alright. Mai's telling her side of the story too, in sections were Naru either wasn't present or was totally uninterested, in order to make the facts a little clearer. And I have helpfully summarised it all for you by case, to the tune of a few simple truths. Because that's what SPR is all about, right? Finding the truth?
Hunting ghosts, Yasu. We hunt ghosts.
Yes, we hunt ghosts. And zombies, ghouls, demons, vampires, and that mermaid the one time, do you remember?
All but the mermaid; I think you might have dreamed that one, Yasu.
Ah, well, that would explain why her top came flying off and landed in my innocent hands.
… Why are we friends again?
Because, dear Mai, you love me. You adore and worship me. And I think you're ok too.
Geez, thanks. You know, I could still show this to Naru…
Hah! I win.
Fine. Getting back on topic, the following cases are arranged in chronological order, starting with the first relevant one I could find.
It's not relevant; it's not even a case. You just like quoting it at me.
It shows where it all began. It was on a cold, stormy night…
Oh shut up. It all starts about three years after Naru found Gene's body. He took it back to England, disappeared for two months, then came back and tried to pretend everything was the same as it had been.
It kind of was.
Well… yeah ok. Finding Gene didn't really change Naru at all, and we all forgave him for lying to us eventually.
Some of us faster than others.
The guy was a jerk to me before he left!
He was a jerk to everyone, and I didn't say I blamed you. Hey, it all worked out in the end, right?
I suppose so. What were we talking about again?
The case files. Included in this incredible selection (if I do say so myself), we have singing, dancing, kissing, possession, vampires, serial killers and one very persistent mother.
That's quite the list. I like how you wrote Luella in after the serial killer.
I wasn't sure which annoyed Naru more.
She's not that bad… but I take your point.
Of course you do, I'm always right. Anyway, enough bickering. I…
… We hereby present the case files to you, dear reader. May you laugh, cry, and generally enjoy our exploits.
We'll start with truth number one: Nightmares can affect your waking life too. Read on to discover why Naru asks for tea so often and just what prompted the following events.
