    Summary

    With no prison cell to cramp his style, Mickey Milkovich gets to start over in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The only problem is he has limited funds, no job, barely speaks Spanish, and has no friends or family there. Oh, and he is a fugitive in hiding.

    He couldn't help but send a note to a few folks back home. Each chapter uncovers a little of Mickey's salty seaside life when he receives letters from Chicago.

    Excerpt:
    "I tried to picture you wearing a Forever Lazy and it made me feel equal parts ashamed and excited."

    Summary

    Everything is canon through Season 7 - yeah, even the bits you don't like.

    This is my attempt at wrapping up the Gallavich storyline in a Shameless fashion - something which may, or may not be attempted by the series going forward. It wouldn't necessarily be my choice for where the characters are, or how they got there, but I think there's still aspects to all of them that have yet to be explored.

    Consider this my fanfic cherry popping party!

    Part I - Complete!
    "Ian hasn’t brushed his teeth in more than two days. This would be upsetting for him at the best of times, but on the rare occasions that he’s missed a clean the intervening period doesn’t usually include taking meth and eating nothing but mustard and bologna sandwiches. To say that Ian’s breath is ripe would be an insult to durian fruits and Limburger cheeses the world over."

    Part II - In progress.
    "It’s a relief to crawl back under the covers because then he doesn’t have to think. And thinking makes him feel like he’s drowning in molasses, desperately trying to wade to a non-existent bubble of goo-free clarity."

    Summary

    Fiona had told him that getting involved with Mickey again would set a match to all of his progress, but in the history of fires that made up a good portion of Ian’s life, Mickey had always been the one to put them out, or at the very least, burn himself trying.

    Ian had decided, then, in the middle of the night after everyone had gone to bed, that playing with fire was infinitely better than feeling burned out.
