    Summary

    The Maitlands didn't seem to mind at all when Beetlejuice fell asleep with them. And they knew that he was the same way.

    Despite not one of the three of them no longer needing to sleep, that was nothing to stop them all from doing so.

    Absolutely nothing at all … except for maybe Beetlejuice having constant nightmares related to certain issues that he, the Maitlands, and the Deetzes still need to talk about.

    Summary

    Betelgeuse has been making trouble in the afterlife: teaching malevolent spirits how to kill and maim, tricking the living out of their souls, and wreaking havoc on the living world whenever summoned.

    Juno takes it on herself to put an end to this demon's games, by playing one of his games herself. A simple wager. He has to train a ghost how to haunt their house. She picks the ghost. If she wins- he relinquishes the stolen souls. If he wins- he will be free to enter the living world without needing to be summoned.

    He accepts the deal, thinking this is going to be the easiest thing in the world.

    And then Juno picks the Maitlands. (As they are in the musical)

    Summary

    He’s sitting there waiting, gnawing on the colored chalk, when Lydia comes into his room. She studies the crude door on his wall, three simple lines.
    “What are you doing?” she can’t help but ask. She’s sixteen, now, attitude everywhere, but they’re still best friends. They've been clinging to each other even harder than ever before, this past year.
    “You should go back to mom,” he says, not glancing back from the drawing, brow furrowed.

    “You’re trying to go there. The Netherworld. You're trying to leave us.”

     

    Thanks to everyone who's read through everything I've put out, so far. We have run out of cute high school nonsense and are now officially in pain territory. Good luck!
