    Summary

    Beetlejuice doesn't understand boundaries. Adam and Barbara (and the Deetzes) try to help him in the best way possible. And even that may be hard, what with Beetlejuice just automatically assuming that Adam and Barbara don’t want a relationship with him anymore.

    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

    Beetlejuice didn’t expect his ma to regenerate early, much less be as angry about being eaten by that Sandworm. Things take a turn for the worst when Beetlejuice is asked to see her, and, with a now strengthened curse, he is forced back into the lives and afterlives of the Maitland-Deetzes.

    Wanting to apologize and be forgiven for his past actions is going to be a whole lot harder for Beetlejuice, especially considering that the Maitland-Deetzes are all still just as angry at him as they have been.

    But hey... all he really wants is to be a part of their family. And it’s up to him to show them all just that.

    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

    Most of the Maitland-Deetz family were still hurting deep inside months after the Beetlejuice incident. And, for Delia, being the therapist/life coach for the whole family meant that she needed to help:

    — her husband who, although now deep inside, still is mourning for the loss of his first wife.
    — her stepdaughter, who is still having consistent nightmares regarding the events of the week they moved in despite things being fine now.
    — her ghostly housemates and friends, who, although they now have a family and a daughter of their own, are still both mourning the losses of their own lives.
    — and her demon housemate and friend, who is still dealing with both trauma and emotional issues stemming from eons ago. Most of which have to do with loneliness or his mother.

    And then there's her: dealing with traumatic problems and stress from her own past that she would much rather forget. Luckily she’s got people all around her who all know exactly how they can help.

    Summary

    As promised, a new tale featuring our beloved duo from Call My Name has emerged!

    Now happily married after almost being thrown to the Sandworms, Lydia and Betelgeuse now face a completely different kind of trouble. Marriage is difficult enough, but when a connection to Betelgeuse's past is drawn back to his new family, their finally stable life begins to collapse around them.

    (This is technically a sequel to the original, Call My Name. Reading the original is encouraged but not completely necessary to read this fic. There will be references to Call My Name included in this fic, but I'll try to make it as clear as possible to those who haven't seen the original :D)

    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

    He’s sitting there waiting, gnawing on the colored chalk, when Lydia comes into his room. She studies the crude door on his wall, three simple lines.
    “What are you doing?” she can’t help but ask. She’s sixteen, now, attitude everywhere, but they’re still best friends. They've been clinging to each other even harder than ever before, this past year.
    “You should go back to mom,” he says, not glancing back from the drawing, brow furrowed.

    “You’re trying to go there. The Netherworld. You're trying to leave us.”

     

    Thanks to everyone who's read through everything I've put out, so far. We have run out of cute high school nonsense and are now officially in pain territory. Good luck!

    Summary

    Of course, her dad and Delia wouldn't be too happy to see her doing something like this, but after Lydia had listened to her ghost mother rant for two hours about how the parking lots of Trader Joe's stores were always jam packed and nobody could ever even find a spot to park in they ended up having to go park in a completely different parking lot and walk a mile long distance just to get there, she just had to do this.

    And summoning Beetlejuice in the middle of the parking lot would be an even better idea.

    Or: Standing in the middle of a Trader Joe’s Parking Lot, Lydia decides to summon Beetlejuice. What follows is absolute chaos.

    Summary

    She was such a dour girl, with a face as somber and lovely as the grave. Like a ghost, she floated throughout the city in her red spider web poncho, always with the Neitherworld’s most malevolent spirit by her side. But she hadn’t been seen in the Neitherworld for some time, not since storm clouds roiled above the city and her teardrop-shaped door to the realm of the dead disappeared into nothing.

    Beetlejuice is suddenly ripped from his new normal to confront a past he thought he had left behind. Now that the newly dead Lydia Deetz has been placed under his care, The pair of old friends will suddenly learn how the other had changed while Lydia was away living her life. Will they be able to patch up what had been broken before?

    (Note: This work contains depictions of blood and wound and discusses death. Please be careful if you're sensitive to that sort of thing.)
