    Summary

    Do you ever watch an innocent, bit-of-fun kids show from the 90s and think 'hey! This should be a gritty sitcom-drama about people facing the disgusting reality of how capitalism has basically made every day feel like life in the Neitherworld?'

    You don't?

    Well, do you ever wish your favourite childhood characters had real-world problems thrust at them, like mental illness, poverty, and racism, rather than whether it's acceptable to turn into a giant boot or not?

    No?

    Well life's a huge disappointment, because that's what you're getting.

    Basically, BJ is an angsty lil con-artist who gets his neighbours, and his cousin thrice removed Lydia, into heaps of trouble while trying to figure out how to stop being suidial in an economy that would never allow him medication.

    ~

    I'll probably re-title this at some point. I'm marking it as finished, but I'm trash, so I'll probably come back and ruin more episodes later. It's just in case I never have time to finish it. Current chapter based on s4e2.

    Summary

    She'd killed him.

    Not only had she killed him, but she'd done it while he had a pulse and motor function and working lungs.

    If Beetlejuice was a monster then so was Lydia.

    -

    I don't know what I'm doing, I can't summarise for shit. Basically Lydia calls The Mighty B and they chat a bit and it's like musical meets pre-animated series.

    Summary

    Not much has been said about how the duo met or what happened after the cartoon, but Lydia Deetz was about to make some choices that would haunt her for the rest of her life.
    Life is hard for those who don't fit in, and harder still for those who don't have a life.
    But, in the end, things like wanting to be loved & accepted is a universal desire for all beings, right?
    What do you do when you're faced with making a choice and there is no right answer?
    Worse yet, what do you do when you're forced to make choices that you don't want and will alter your life completely.
    This will not be easy by any means.

    Summary

    A wedding seemed kind of random, don't you think? Or was it really?
    A series of drabbles that explore the scenes which Beetlejuice and Lydia shared and what happened in the time gaps, how Beetlejuice's plans shifted, what drove Lydia to write that suicide note and how our lovely couple felt on their wedding day.

    --
    I read an amazing post by satsuki-chan (http://satsuki-chan.tumblr.com/post/56380022245/seeing-as-my-last-little-betelgeusexlydia-rant) that explored the theory of why Beetlejuice changed his plans from tricking the Maitlands to marrying Lydia, and I think it fits so perfectly. And I decided to write about it! So the theory is hers and this is just my own take on it.
