    Summary

    A longform story of Lou and Debbie's friendship/relationship over nearly three decades, spanning every chance meeting, proper introduction, canon narrative plotline, and everything in between. There is something here for everyone! xoxo

    In my own words, this fic is romantic in a friend-way (and eventually not just in a friend-way;), and focused heavily on playful banter and emotions.

    Summary

    “You think I should have been the one to tell her?” Lou asked, eyebrows raised. “Tell the woman who hasn’t spoken to me in over four years. Who, as you know, is married to me, and doesn’t want anything to do with me. I should’ve been the one to tell her that her brother, her best friend, is dead.”

    “I thought you were her best friend,” Tammy muttered.

    The blonde scoffed in response. “I’m a con.”

    Tammy sighed. “I don’t mean what you do for a living I mean...”

    “Not a con artist,” Lou corrected herself. “A con for Debbie. No better than a fucking tourist with a bucket of quarters or a croupier.”

    “Lou,” Tammy warned.

    “She convinced me that she was in love with me,” Lou hissed, locking eyes with Tammy. They were starting to water against her will. “She conned me.”

    “You know that’s not true,” Tammy sympathized.

    “Do I? I thought I knew her,” Lou frowned, shaking her head. Things had been so good. They had been so in love. And then it all disappeared, dragging the rug right out from under her and landing her flat on her ass, shocked and confused as to what they had built over a series of years that ran away so quickly out of nowhere. “But does anyone really know Debbie Ocean?”

    Summary

    “You alright there?” A gentle voice asked as a light hand found her shoulder.

    Lou turned slowly to see Dr. Ocean’s face close to hers, deep brown eyes full of concern. She had to bite down her tongue to keep from letting out a cheesy line like: Well, I am now, already wanting to smack herself for this being her first impression up close.

    “Perfectly fine,” Lou smiled. “No need to worry about me, professor.”

    Dr. Ocean smiled with a nod. “Do you think you’ll like the class?”

    Lou was perplexed for a moment, surprised that the professor recognized her as her own student.

    “I know I will,” Lou nodded. “I’ve been looking forward to being able to take your courses since I was a first-year.”

    Dr. Ocean laughed softly and Lou’s heart started thumping faster, her head dizzy at the sound. She wanted to make her laugh again.

    “I’ve heard great things about you, Ms. Miller. I’m looking forward to seeing your work.”

    “You’ve heard about me?” Lou half-whispered, taken by surprise.

    “Dr. Weil has always been impressed by your papers,” Dr. Ocean nodded again. “And Professor Kluger mentioned I should keep an eye out for you. Have you thought about applying to be my TA?”

    Summary

    Debbie Ocean and Lou Miller's story after Ocean's 8. Life is quiet, simple and good. But for the heist wives it's too mundane, even with just about all the money in the world the two are getting the itch. Not quite a heist to the scale of adding a 9th person, but they'll call this Ocean's 8 1/2.

    Summary

    How did they get here?

    How did they go from cuddling late into the nights, blushing smiles, expensive gifts and speeding drives to where they were now, facing each other down like alley cats battling for territory?

    How did they go from stumbling drunk through the streets, laughing like they would never laugh again, kisses on the forehead and burning promises, to looking at each other with the blank gazes of strangers?

    She’s still beautiful, Lou thought with the ache of loss.

    She’s still beautiful, Debbie thought and felt her heart sink in defeat.

    Summary

    “You don’t look happy,” Debbie mused. She paced towards the table where Lou sat, playing with her rings as if they held the answers to questions Debbie could never even fathom asking.

    “Well, you’re not gonna be happy when you hear this,” the blonde sighed. “Sit down.”

    It wasn’t a request.

    Debbie looked at Lou pointedly, waiting for her to say something. Anything. For what felt like decades.

    “You’re already on the bloody map,” Lou hissed, something in her voice changing, her eyes flashing. “Nobody is going to fucking flock to you. To us. They’ll go straight to him.”

    “Lou, come on. Listen—” Debbie pled. Lou had to see what a brilliant idea this was. How well they could make this work.

    “No,” Lou snapped, shaking her head. “I’m done listening. You listen, Debbie. People will flock to him. Any kind of team or heist or con or even dinner is because of him. Not you. Not me. Claude fucking Becker.”

    Summary

    “Can I help you with something?” A deep voice asked, rich velvet undertones filling the air. Debbie shivered at the sound alone, whipping around to see a blonde woman behind the counter.

    She was surprised for a moment to see that she was dressed in more of a gentleman’s suit than the typical dresses and skirts she saw women in often, including herself. She felt a bit self conscious as she flattened her skirt against herself and adjusted her coat, walking forward. She felt like the blue eyes of the woman had her in a trance as she moved forward still.

    “Yes,” Debbie stutterer. “I was wondering if you might help me find this.” She pulled the slip of paper from her purse where she’d scrawled the title and artist of a song she’d heard on the radio a few weeks ago she hoped the Beckers would enjoy.

    The woman clucked her tongue and frowned. “Let me check,” she offered. “I think I sold the last copy of this last week, but I might be wrong.”

    Debbie nodded her thanks, mindlessly slipping her gloves off and folding them on the counter.

    Summary

    “He was just a mark, baby,” Debbie tried to explain. Her hand reached out to settle softly on Lou’s shoulder. The blonde shook it off with a sharp movement.

    “If that’s how you work all your marks, then we have a bigger problem,” Lou hissed. “You were all over him.”

    “Lou, I wasn’t. I—”

    The Australian turned, her eyes softening and her jaw unclenching for a moment.

    “If I’m not what you want anymore,” Lou started, her eyes starting to get blurry. “If I—was just a phase or something confusing—if I can’t give you what you want…be who you want me to be…just tell me.”

    “No,” Debbie cried. “Lou, it’s not like that. I want you—you’re everything to me. Of course, this is what I want. You’re all I want.”

    Summary

    It’s certainly not the first time Debbie’s walked out - also not the first time she’s done it without saying goodbye - but it feels different. Darker. Stranger. More unexpected. Debbie’s a walking con - she’s a con within a con within a shady exterior. But Lou thought she had her figured out, had Debbie pressed firm, like a tack under her thumb. I understand you, we understand each other, that kind of bullshit. Partners in crime, isn’t that what they call it?

    After disappearing for nearly a year, Debbie Ocean calls the team together for one last heist.

    Summary

    “You should know by now that cheesy pick-up lines don’t work.” Debbie rolled her eyes.

    Lou scoffed and sat down at the table, scooting her chair closer to Debbie.

    “It’s not a line, Debbie,” Lou smirked. “I find you incredibly sexy. That is simply, a fact.”

    Debbie scoffed this time.

    “Debbie,” Lou smiled, liking how the name tasted on her tongue. “You look smart. There are, what, 40 other attractive women in this bar—including your friend here—and I’ve been unable to take my eyes off you…and only you, for the past two hours. Not a line, Debbie. Just a… fact.”

    Debbie was flustered and she knew Lou could see it, but she wasn’t quick enough to come up with a witty response. Or any response at all for that matter.

    “Answer me this, Debbie. Without thinking about your answer first: do you find me attractive?”

    “No.” Debbie lied.

    “Yes,” Lou grinned. “You do.”

    Summary

    “This is just like last time.” She admitted, her voice dropping an octave. She could hear her throat going. She walked away before Debbie could see the tears brimming in her eyes. It was Vegas '97 all over again.

    Debbie slowly turned so they were practically just short of touching lips.
    “Lou, I—"
    “You do not run a job in a job.”
    Debbie’s lips faltered, failing to make a coherent sentence. She watched Lou close her mouth abruptly as if trying to bite her own tongue before revealing something more. Lou slipped away headed towards the exit to the roof.

    Lou paused to pick up the scotch glass on the table by the door. Without turning around, in a low voice, she flatly said, “Don’t ever make me have this conversation with you again.”
