    Summary

    What would have happened? What would have happened if Betelgeuse had failed in marrying Lydia? What would have happened if he hadn't ruined her life? Lydia wondered that often, wishing it could have been different nearly eight years ago. Instead, she had to live with the knowledge she royally fucked up, was married to a poltergeist, and would never again get the chance to be normal. She hates everything, everyone, and would rather her life just... stopped. Unfortunately (or rather, fortunately), Lydia has someone who won't let that happen. The Ghost with the Most would never let a toy break on his watch.

    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

    Intrigued by the different colors Beetlejuice’s hair can become, Adam decides to start using a special chart to keep track of all the different colors and the moods associated with them. But getting the rest of their family on board was an entirely different process.

    Before they could start incorporating in a chart, they first needed to see if having one was absolutely necessary.

    Summary

    *inspired by the unmade sequel 'Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian'*

    It's been five years since Lydia Deetz travelled the astral plane to free Beetlejuice from Hell so that he could help her scare her parents' developers off a Hawaiian island where they were building a luxury resort that was destroying the local wildlife. Five years since Beetlejuice tried and failed again to marry Lydia. Five years since he started to wonder if he was just using her as a way out or if he really does care about her.

    Now he learns from Lydia's friend, Dave, that she's run away with The Astral Circus, working as a fortune teller, traveling the astral plane to see the stars and other worlds galore. Beetlejuice decides to take to the astral plane himself to go after her. When the two finally reunite they both must finally decide what they are to each other. Friends? Enemies? Or something more.

    Summary

    “I have a girlfriend!” Lydia announces quickly, before anyone else at the table manages to figure out her secret thanks to Delia’s “lowkey” dessert. She lets out the breath she’s been holding since Delia had started her rant about periods. “I, uh, I’m a lesbian. And I have a girlfriend. I… yeah. I’m dating a girl.”

    Lydia decides to come out to her family. As with most things in the Maitland-Deetz household, it does not go according to plan.

    Summary

    Barbara and Adam were renowned horse breeders suffering too many losses of their beloved mares.

    Lydia was their farmhand who used the horses as a way to cope with the death of her mother.

    Beetlejuice was the washed up, down-on-his-luck trainer in search of a jockey because he never got to be one himself due to a restriction in the races.

    And the scrappy jockey and the ill-tempered horse that they dredged out from the mud? Well, they were what brought them all together as a family.

    Summary

    DISCLAIMER: this fic is technically finished, the final chapters are posted at notes. Please proceed as you will! Thank you!

    In a feeble attempt to do what's best for his daughter, who's still mourning the loss of her mother, Charles and Delia make the decision to foster a child. When they meet Laurence, the sweetest, most happy-go-lucky kid around, they think he'd be the perfect person to bring Lydia out of her shell. Ignoring warnings from his case workers, the Maitlands, the Deetzes bring their new foster son home, only for him to immediately start wreaking havoc.

    They'd send him straight back, only Lydia seems to love the chaos.

    What are titles, but mere phrases selected in a moment of panic? Anyway, chapters are super short and, although in chronological order, they aren't a whole-ass narrative, just the pieces of the story I felt like writing. However that means this should be both an easy read and quick to update! Warning: there's depression, there's mentioned abuse, and it's just so freaking dialogue heavy, I put bare-minimum effort into the prose here.

    Summary

    Demons weren’t supposed to regenerate early, Beetlejuice knew that for a fact.

    Or, he thought he knew. When Juno regenerates much much earlier than Beetlejuice thought she would, he finds himself, after a summons to see her, transported back to the living world. Once more in the lives and afterlives of the Maitland-Deetzes.

    It’s going to take him quite a while to prove to them he deserves to be forgiven, but all he really wants is to be a part of their small, strange and unusual family.

    Before he can, though, he’s first gotta prove to them that he can be.

    Formerly titled “What’s in a Name?”

    Summary

    The blinding, unforgiving midday heat is enough to raise blisters on the skin. Looking out over a crowd of folks booing him, calling for his demise, probably should have had some kind of emotional impact. On the occasion of one’s death, after all, one does expect tears. Flowers, laid out in lace, dark veils and coal black clothes, a few muffled sobs from those further back in the funerary procession, unable to contain themselves. Instead he’s met with the dusty faces of former neighbors and strangers alike, all eagerly waiting to hear the exact tone and pitch that his neck will make when it snaps.

    Summary

    The snarls shatter the silence. Claws scraping ash, fangs glinting in the light of pale fire. Creatures of such darkness were not meant for foolish connections, that much he knew. And yet, like blood through veins, like water over a cliff, he ran, a lesser being cinched between his teeth, for what he truly was: an amalgamation of desperate want.
