    Summary

    Betelgeuse has been making trouble in the afterlife: teaching malevolent spirits how to kill and maim, tricking the living out of their souls, and wreaking havoc on the living world whenever summoned.

    Juno takes it on herself to put an end to this demon's games, by playing one of his games herself. A simple wager. He has to train a ghost how to haunt their house. She picks the ghost. If she wins- he relinquishes the stolen souls. If he wins- he will be free to enter the living world without needing to be summoned.

    He accepts the deal, thinking this is going to be the easiest thing in the world.

    And then Juno picks the Maitlands. (As they are in the musical)

    Summary

    It's been six years since Betelgeuse graced the Deetzs and Maitlands with his presence. Lydia, rightfully, expected that he was gone for good. That was until the dreams started. Until the feelings of being watched and flashes of green invaded her calm life. The man who had haunted her nightmares for years was back, but he was a lot less scary than when she was a child. The Beetle wants to finish their deal. Lydia wants a normal life. There's only one thing that she hasn't considered when it comes to the Ghost with the Most: Anything to do with the Beetle promises to be interesting.

    Summary

    Lydia summoned Beetlejuice a few months after he left, the biggest difference about this time being the large summoning circle he's trapped in. Lydia promised he wouldn't be in there long, only until she could convince everyone else he wouldn't destroy anything.

    The whole circle thing is entirely new to him though, and even less freeing then being given full reign of a house with how constraining it is, he can't promise not to get bored and find ways to entertain himself.

    Some misunderstandings and much needed explanations are in the way of him being able to get them to let him out though, and his antics don't help when there's only so much he can do trapped in a damn circle. Lydia just wanted her friend back, not entirely expecting the chain of events that happen either with him there.

    Summary

    Turned human and back in the living world, Betelgeuse, having been a demon for almost his entire afterlife, not entirely and fully used to being alive, has to now rely on the Maitlands and the Deetzes to help him if he’s going to figure this whole living thing out.

    He thinks learning to be alive is easy. He just didn’t expect it to be harder than it seemed.

    Summary

    The Maitland-Deetzes may have been quick to forgive Betelgeuse for his past actions, but as he gradually begins to show that he’s feeling more alone as time passes by, it reveals a side of the demon to the Maitlands that they never imagined they’d see.

    And, as they spend more time around him to make him feel welcome and less alone, the Maitlands learn some new things, not only about Betelgeuse but about themselves as well, that soon have them both questioning whether they really know themselves, each other, and Betelgeuse.

    Formerly titled “On The Off Chance”.
