    Summary

    His voice is soft now, the deep yell from earlier having vanished. He has soft dark hair, hazel-green eyes and pale skin. He looks young, maybe a year or two older than her and she’s only twenty one. Ziggy knows that’s ridiculous of course. Niklaus is an old and famous demon. Horror stories have been spread about him for thousands of generations. Towns wiped out. Plagues. Death. Vengeance.

    Anything your heart desires in exchange for whatever he wants. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. Balancing the playing field. It could be your soul, your first-born child, your wealth, your spouse. Anything yours under the sun.

    Or: Ziggy is a witch, Nick is a demon, and he has something she wants.

    She just has to give him something in exchange.

    Summary

    “Nick,” she said. “Nice to meet you.” She looked at him closely. “You look a lot happier when you smile.”

    “Oh.”

    “It’s nice,” she told him. “You have a nice smile. I just haven’t seen it before, really, because you tend to brood a lot.”

    “Oh. Sorry.”

    “You say sorry too much,” she commented lightly, but her eyes remained bright.

    She didn’t remove her grip from his, and Nick was too stupefied to do anything about it either.

    “Tell me,” Ziggy said, looking over his shoulder into the distance. He turned to find Kurt laughing with some other Sunnyvaler campers. Other footballers and jocks. “How do you feel about putting your proclivity for spiders to good use?”

    Or: Nick is the weirdo from Shadyside, and Ziggy is the princess of Sunnyvale.

    Or: a Nick and Ziggy gender swap.

    Summary

    “You shouldn’t have done that,” Alice says, scowling a little. “I can take care of myself. I don’t need a babysitter.”

    Cindy just looks at her. “I don’t want to be a babysitter either,” she says. “I already have one kid sister, I don’t need another.”

    “Great—”

    “But I would like a friend though,” Cindy blurts out, looking at her with those shiny blue eyes. “I haven’t ever really had a friend before.”

    Alice blinks. Once. Twice. It doesn’t make any sense that someone like her could know loneliness the same way Alice does, and yet—

    Cindy looks so earnest she doesn’t have the heart to say no.

    “Fine,” Alice says, offering Cindy her hand. “Friends.”

    There’s a beat before Cindy takes it, shaking it excitedly. Her hand is warm, her skin soft, and Alice feels her heart flutter.

    “Friends,” Cindy agrees, grinning.

    Or: This is how Cindy and Alice come together.

    It’s also the story of how they fall apart.

    Summary

    "Whoa…Berman,” Arnie breathes slowly, reaching down to retrieve his flashlight. “What did you take?" He lowers his sunglasses, peering curiously at Cindy. “You look like shit."

    “Nothing!” Cindy retorts defensively, squinting at the beam in her face. “I'm clean."

    "Uh-huh…” he utters dubiously before shaking his head in disappointment. “Thanks a lot for sharing with the whole class.”

    "I'm clean!" Cindy insists, offended. "Just a little…” she trails off and suddenly sneezes. “Under the weather."

    “Bless you,” Arnie hums sympathetically, switching off the light. He moves the sunglasses back up his nose. "Been there. Just gotta ride it out."

    "Plan on doing exactly that," Cindy vows. “With a bit of Tylenol. Got any?”

    “Really Cindy?” Ziggy glares at her.

    “Then we don’t need to disturb Nurse Lane,” Cindy justifies. “Well Arnie?”

    “That looks like something that would take a lot more than Tynelol to fix."

    Or: Cindy is sick.

    Ziggy tries to take care of her stubborn big sister without killing her.

    Summary

    It's over. Ruby is going to kill me.

    And sing sweetly while ripping her insides out with a razor.

    Nick Goode will give an interview on both morning and evening news. Pay for her funeral, deliver an eulogy, have her buried next to Cin-

    Ruby’s hand reaches inside. She delicately grips the bag containing week's worth of groceries on one of the chairs and slips it out through the window.

    Ziggy stares open-mouthed as Ruby rummages through the bag, pulling each item carefully, putting it close to her face and…

    Ziggy's eyebrows shoot up.

    …sniffing it.

    Ruby Lane was sniffing her groceries.

    Summary

    “Your well-being is a priority for us, Ziggy.”

    “If that was true I would’ve been talking to a therapist right now, but I’m not,” She leans back on her seat, tilting her head at them. “You want to know what happened on the island.”

    Summary

    Cindy has dreamt of leaving her hometown as soon as she was old enough to understand geography, that there was an entire world out there. Where she could just be Cindy Berman, and not just another Shadysider destined for a tragic life. She’d clung to that dream when the hopelessness threatened to swallow her whole.

    Like when her dad had up and left them for some cocktail waitress in Vegas.

    Or the time her mom never showed up to her fifth grade spelling bee…or come to collect her and Ziggy from school, and spent two days drinking at Sullivan’s.

    After fights with Ziggy, her falling out with Alice, the one thing that had kept her going was the idea of college, of escaping Shadyside’s shadow and building something better.

    Summary

    Shadyside was becoming someplace to be, to build a home.

     

    But not for them.

    At least...not today.

    Because she and Alice are taking a road trip to her new college in Indiana.

    On a full scholarship.

    Alternatively: the beginning of Cindy and Alice's road trip.

    Summary

    "Ziggy is Shadyside Trash," Alice read. "Ziggy sucks co—"

    "Alright!" Cindy cut off sharply, each insult a painful reminder of how she had personally failed her sister.

    "Typical Sunnyvalers," Alice said, glancing her way a bit concerned. Or maybe it was Cindy's mind playing tricks again. "Not even an ounce of originality."

    Ziggy snorted in agreement. "Yeah the only original thing they did today is try to burn me alive," she chuckled.

    No one joined her.

    Or: Cindy finds out how Ziggy got the burn on her arm.

    Summary

    Sam's Dad is the head coach of Shadyside's most prominent football team. There were no rules except his one: No dating any of the players. This was never a problem for Sam- until the girl she tutored back in high school and had the biggest crush on got drafted to her Dad's team.

     

    (Just to be clear, this is not American Football. It's soccer (or as I know it, football) I don't know how long I'll keep this one going but we'll see how it does.) I've got a lot more I'm working on but you could consider this a test run. Also, everyone is around 22/23/24 years old except for Ziggy and Nick who are around 17/18)

    Summary

    “But—technically—there is a way you can pop your cherry and not have to worry about getting pregnant in the process…”

    “If you’re talking about the pull-out technique, I know, but I’m also fairly sure that’s not 100% effective,” Cindy says stiffly.

    “Wow, look at you, snitch, all the sexy terms—no, I’m talking about—what if I helped you pop your cherry?” Alice asks in a rush.

    Or Nick Goode bleeds out in 1978, Alice, Cindy, and Ziggy survive, and now Cindy has to deal with her feelings towards Alice.
