    Summary

    "Who the hell are you?" Lydia asked, staring incredulously at whoever was in her mirror.

    "I should be asking you the same thing," the girl in the mirror replied, scratching at her head.

    Lydia looked down, then around her bedroom, before finally turning her attention back over towards the girl in her mirror. "My name's Lydia Deetz. And yours?"

    The girl in the mirror's eyes seemed to widen in surprise, then she recollected herself and looked back out at Lydia who seemed confused and was scratching her head as she stared back at her. “Also Lydia Deetz.”

    Summary

    The idea was created using supernatural superstition, when her dad had finally relented and agreed to let her summon Beetlejuice back. Lydia wasn’t sure if it would work, or was even particularly happy with the arrangement, but her dad was adamant that they make sure he wouldn’t run amok and cause trouble in the house.

    It was only temporary though, and she was sure she could talk him into behaving long enough that he wouldn’t be stuck for very long.

    Summary

    The Maitland-Deetzes may have been quick to forgive Betelgeuse for his past actions, but as he gradually begins to show that he’s feeling more alone as time passes by, it reveals a side of the demon to the Maitlands that they never imagined they’d see.

    And, as they spend more time around him to make him feel welcome and less alone, the Maitlands learn some new things, not only about Betelgeuse but about themselves as well, that soon have them both questioning whether they really know themselves, each other, and Betelgeuse.

    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 twelve when he’s left on his own in the upperworld.

    His mother has promised him a special treat that day, and he follows her quietly through the door she’s drawn.
    She’d knocked, and the drawing was more than a drawing, suddenly, with white light and noise spilling through into his little corner of hell as it opened, and when he steps through, Betelgeuse sees blue skies and green grass for the first time in his unlife.
    He takes another step, and another and another, and suddenly he’s running and laughing and jumping and the air up here is different, but good, and he takes breaths he doesn't need because it feels nice, and he turns to her again to try and entice her to play with him-
    And the door is gone.
    He stands there, staring at the nothingness where she and it had been, and realization hits him hard, because he’s twelve, and he’s been left on his own.

    (Beetlejuice au- BJ is adopted by Charles and Emily Deetz at a young age. Eventual BJ/Maitlands ship, no BJ/Lydia even a little at all so no worries.)
