    Summary

    this is a "what if" that turned into a monster:
    what if beth and rio were around the same age?
    what if they both went to high school in detroit?
    what if they met as teens and their chemistry was off the charts?
    what if he wasn't always cagey and secretive?
    what if - for just a short time - she didn't put everyone else first?
    ------

    Summary

    What happens next is totally her fault--Ruby's grabbed the popsicles, leaving Beth to take the cones, and it's not like she's never carried four ice cream cones before, but she realizes she's forgotten napkins. Without thinking, she whips around and--runs smack into the person who was, apparently, next in line. She watches with dismay as one of the cones falls in slow motion, smearing chocolate ice cream down the front of a black shirt and then black jeans and finally landing on the toe of a black sneaker, and for a moment she's completely frozen.

    Summary

    Dean and Beth fight about Rio. On girls night, Beth, Annie, and Ruby discover a mysterious package left on the doorstep by Rio. Beth prepares for their first date.

    ---

    “This is weird, right? A gift after a first—I don’t know, can you even call it a date?”

    Annie juts her lip out, tilts her head, and squints one eye, like, No, Beth, trying to bone someone you just met in a van outside the bar is not a date, but thankfully she refrains from vocalizing it. Instead, she answers the other question and says, “I think that depends on what’s inside. If it’s a finger? Yes, definitely weird. But it’s probably okay if it’s like, a box of chocolates or something.” She shakes the box again. “Too light for chocolates, but conceivably as heavy as a finger, maybe even an ear.”

    Beth grimaces. “Seriously, Annie?”

    “Maybe this is what dating is like in 2019,” Ruby says, shrugging. “Maybe this is him wooing you? I have no point of reference. Stan wooed me by passing me notes with the lyrics to Salt-n-Pepa songs in English class.”

    Summary

    Summary: The final showdown with Veto. That’s it, that’s the summary. (No prompts were used in this final piece)

    --
    Beth leans against the side of her trunk, crossing her arms over her chest as she watches him take the last few pumpkins she has in the cart and load them up for her. “So the plan is: walk in, shoot Veto.”

    Rio’s eyes narrow just a little before he looks at her, his jaw working in that way that tells her he’s teetering on losing his patience. He chews on the inside of his cheek, “I’m sorry that’s not detailed enough for you. What kind of plan do you want, Mission Impossible?”

    Summary

    “Hey, ladies.” The three of them froze at the sound of [Rio's] voice. “Where’s my shirt?”

    Beth could hear him approach the island counter and when she saw his feet appear by her stool, she turned her head to the side so she could see him without having to raise her head. He licked his lips and gave her an amused smile.

    “You don’t remember where you put it?”

    “You asked for it.”

    Beth forced herself to sit up again. Out of the corner of her eye, she could see Ruby and Annie look to each other. “Why on Earth would I want your shirt?”

    “You threw up on it and insisted you’d wash it.” Rio sat down on the stool beside her. “You were in no state but I had to take it off anyway.”

    Beth could feel her cheeks burning. “I was sick on you?”

    “Oh, yeah.” He continued to look amused and she hated that.

    Summary

    Beth struggles with whether or not to tell Rio that she, Annie, and Ruby have stolen back Boomer's body. Rio keeps Beth in the loop about new business developments, and Beth fights for a bigger role in their partnership. Rio opens up to Beth, literally and figuratively, when he invites her to stay over for the first time.

    ---

    Beth lets out a breath, relaxing. “You’re not mad?”

    He shrugs. “Nah, I’m mad,” he says, coming closer still. “But you protecting you."

    “And that’s… okay with you?” she asks uncertainly. “Even in this partnership?”

    Rio’s now close enough to take his pinky and push her bangs to the side. “Partner’s gotta trust each other,” he says. “Have each other’s backs. Be loyal.”

    They just stare at each other for a moment, Beth’s eyes darting, trying to read him, trying to understand.

    “But that don’t come instantly. It’s gotta be earned.”

    “I’ll earn it,” Beth promises.

    “Yeah,” he says, nodding slightly. “Me too.”

    Summary

    Seething in the aftermath of a disastrous family dinner that Dean had tricked her into holding, Beth’s eyes catch the words on the tattered piece of paper that has silently mocked her for the last week. Looking back down at the polo in her hands Beth lets the shirt fall into the foamy water and pulls the yellow gloves from her hands. Her fingers brush gently across the words of the coffee-stained flyer as her face breaks into a slow smile. Beth Boland was going to take back control of her life and she was going to start with boxing classes.

    Summary

    Beth needs a pep talk from Annie before she can hook up with Rio in her van; Rio senses Beth is nervous and gets her talking to relax her.

    ---

    Beth needs a second to regroup, so she drops Rio’s hand and turns to face him right before they get to the exit. Rio doesn’t look all that surprised, which makes Beth feel like he assumes she was never going to go through with it, and even though he’s more right than wrong, this offends her. Beth’s so tired of playing into everyone’s expectations of her as a boring, dowdy housewife, so somehow his acceptance only steels her resolve.

    She’s going to hook up with this man with a neck tattoo in her car in a parking lot, and nothing is going to stop her—except Rio changing his mind, or maybe some sort of natural disaster, or if Ruby calls because there’s some sort of kid emergency or—

    Beth really needs to stop thinking.

    Summary

    Although she's not his usual type, Rio's having fun making Beth's ex-husband jealous, and he's curious about seeing the rest of the night through with her.

    ---

    Rio glances over his shoulder to see if the ex is still watchin’. He is, only he’s being a little less obvious about it. He’s grindin’ against his girl, but his gaze keeps flicking to Beth, seeing if she’s noticin’. Rio looks back over to her: she’s not. She’s ice cold, completely ignoring the guy, and whether that’s because she’s strong-willed or because she’s enjoying herself or because she just don’t care about him, Rio’s not sure—but he’d like to find out.

    Summary

    “Expensive car,” Dean concedes, rubbing his tongue along his teeth. “Lots of good stuff about the CTS, but you know, it ranks lower on reliability than its rivals. Expensive to fix.”

    “Yeah,” Rio nods before he downs the rest of his drink. “I can afford it, though.” Rio sets his glass down on the counter and then moves his hand to rest it on Beth’s knee. His hand is warm and he gives her a slight squeeze, which makes her stomach clench.

    Beth can’t help but smile. Dean stiffens, taking in Rio’s hand placement, and then he eyes Rio’s neck tattoo.

    “What is it that you do?”

    ---

    AU. Post-divorce Beth meets up with Annie at a bar, but Annie's late. While she's waiting, she runs into Dean and Amber. Rio pretends to be her date.

    Summary

    “The first PTA meeting he walked into, she'd given him a look of total abject horror before quickly resuming her standard Passive Housewife expression. He'd enjoyed riling her up until she completely cracked, yelling ‘gluten-free snacks are non-negotiable!’ at him across the table like a maniac and stunning the rest of the room into silence. They'd stared at each other intensely until someone awkwardly cleared their throat and suggested they take a tea break.”

     

    I kinda want Rio to find out all the Dean baggage so he can be a dick to him about it. This fic happened while I was thinking of ways the writers could make him find out organically. Because Beth obviously isn’t going to tell him.

    Summary

    Beth Boland had a lot of stuff to juggle. A burgeoning business, a moronic husband, four children, an unruly younger sister, and a best friend facing insurmountable medical bills. That wasn't even taking into account the gangbangers she'd semi-invited into her life. Or the blackmailer who'd tried to get sex from her sister. Or the blackmailer who'd successfully gotten money out of her.

    What was a middle aged suburban mom to do?

    Summary

    Ruby blinks a few times as she leans forward, turning her head to the side a little as if to hear better. "Come again?"

    Annie, meanwhile, is doing a very good interpretation of a fish which Beth just about catches out of the corner of her eye and she almost laughs but then her sister is speaking again so she focuses back on her closet.

    ”You’re going on a date with gang friend?"

    "Can we maybe not call him that?"

    "How did that happen?" Ruby asks as she wanders closer to the bed.

    "And why?" Annie throws in as she also walks up to the bed, the only difference being that she unceremoniously throws herself onto it, lying on her front near the pile of clothes.

    — After the success of the Aquarium, Beth and Rio go on their second date.
