    Summary

    “You need a favour? From me?”
    “Did I stutter?”
    “You’re asking me for a favour after you couldn’t give a shit when I was about to go to prison for murder? After you refused to help when I swallowed my pride and begged you for money? When Stan was in jail; when Dean took my kids – every time you refused to help!”
    “Yea.”

    OR

    Rio asks Beth for a favour and it changes everything.

    Summary

    “Okay, well, I was talking to Rio while we were - - in a meeting,” oh god, that’s - - Beth flushes at Ruby’s knowing look, can feel the bubble of babble in her throat cresting, but powers through it. “And I told him Dean and I were selling the house, and I asked him for, you know, like, a little extra money or a raise or something to help me out with finding somewhere.”

    “A raise on your fifty percent?” Ruby asks, and Beth nods vehemently, returning Ruby’s are you out of your mind? look with her own who’s side are you on? look before powering through.

    “Anyway, he said no, and then we were at a – another meeting a couple of days ago, and he proposed that we - -“ she fumbles for the words in her head. “Consolidate our assets. In our partnership.”

    - -

    Canon divergence from 2.11. Beth and Rio move in together. They make it work.

    Summary

    Set after S2 finale.

    Beth is out. Sort of. She does what she wants, when she wants. But she has a tight control over it, not allowing that life to take over again. Because she thought she could handle the all-consuming life. But she can't. Now, just over six months of finally getting out, an unexpected visitor at three in the morning threatens her new, barely stable life.

    Summary

    Things come to blows with Beth and the two men in her life.

     

    Peter has called her and asked her out to dinner to “catch up.” There was some vagueness in that language, some leeway for her to believe it wasn’t a date.

    For her to forgive herself for saying yes.

    Still. Here she is at some dingy bar close to Rio’s place knocking back bourbons and trying to muster up enough of a backbone to go and try to have an honest conversation with him. She needs it.

      He’s still having sex with her, but he isn’t talking to her—he’s still teaching her, but when he looks at her it feels like it’s through some sort of thick, distorted glass. The walls are not just up—they’re closing in on her, pushing her away, backward towards the ledge. Beth wonders when her foot will fall to find air instead of solid ground.
