    Summary

    In the summer of 2019, Dave Katz is working for a landscaping service. One of his coworkers tells him about a medium who claims to be able to speak to the dead. When Dave makes an impulsive decision to visit the medium, he can't possibly imagine the beautiful chaos he is about to invite into his life.


    Klaus is sober and struggling. Some wild stuff happened in the spring, and now he's reunited with (most of) his siblings and trying to get a handle on his power. Charging people 50 bucks for an interview with a departed loved one seems like a good way to simultaneously face his demons and earn some grocery money.

    Then a kind, strong, beautiful man named Dave walks in, hoping to talk to his dead boyfriend. One thing leads to another, and Klaus might find love for the very first time! — if he doesn't stay true to character and fuck it all up before it even gets started, that is.

    Summary

    Dave is new in town, and looking for a way to make friends. His coworker, Vanya, invites him to join the Dungeons & Dragons game she runs for her siblings.

    She warns Dave that her family can be a bit much, but nothing could have prepared Dave for the experience of meeting her brother Klaus.

    (Dave might be falling in love with a manic raccoon nightmare boy.)

    Summary

    It's 2015. Ben is dead, but he's doing his best to keep his brother alive. It's not easy, when Klaus's first priority is to stay high all the time.

    In the midst of a particularly rough patch, the ghost of a soldier shows up claiming to know Klaus from the Vietnam War. Weird, right?

    But as it turns out, a timely intervention by this dead soldier may just turn everything around—Klaus's relationship with his siblings, his relationship with his powers, and (does Ben even dare to hope?) his relationship with drugs.

    (What is this fic about, actually? I'm going with: Klaus/Life enemies-to-lovers slowburn.)

    Summary

    Illyria's choice to deceive Fred's parents never ceased to fascinate me.

    In 2004, I imagined that several months after Not Fade Away, Illyria joined the Burkles for Thanksgiving dinner. (See part 1 of this series, a drabble.)

    In 2019, I wondered what it might look like if s/he had done so every year for fifteen years.

    (These days, Fred lives on a ranch in Nevada with some friends and colleagues, and her parents travel to visit her. There have been a lot of changes in fifteen years. Roll with it.)
