    Summary

    It's been six years since Betelgeuse graced the Deetzs and Maitlands with his presence. Lydia, rightfully, expected that he was gone for good. That was until the dreams started. Until the feelings of being watched and flashes of green invaded her calm life. The man who had haunted her nightmares for years was back, but he was a lot less scary than when she was a child. The Beetle wants to finish their deal. Lydia wants a normal life. There's only one thing that she hasn't considered when it comes to the Ghost with the Most: Anything to do with the Beetle promises to be interesting.

    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.

    Formerly titled “On The Off Chance”.

    Summary

    After being banished to limbo for hundreds of years, Betelgeuse has started making deals with the dead, stealing their souls and trapping them alongside him. This quickly becomes an issue, so Juno takes it upon herself to stop him. To stop this powerful demon, she has to take a gamble.

    She proposes a wager- Betelgeuse has to train a recently departed spirit of her choosing how to haunt their house. If she wins and Betelgeuse fails to train the spirit, all of the souls he stole will be freed, and he will be bound to the house alongside the spirit he failed to train. If he wins and successfully trains the spirit, his curse will be lifted, and he will be free to enter the living world without needing to be summoned.

    Of course the freelance bio-exorcist 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

    When Lydia learns that she must either fulfill her contract with Betelgeuse that she made ten years ago or be fed to the Sandworms, she allows herself to be forced into a one-year engagement with the Ghost with the Most to determine whether or not marrying him for real is worth it. To her surprise, he's just as furious about the whole engagement as she is.

    Summary

    Despite the Deetz’ and the Maitlands’ desperate efforts to forget about the ghost with the most after the incident, there was one fact that none of them could ignore.

    Betelgeuse was always going to come back and claim what was his eventually; it was just a matter of how and when.

    Post-movieverse with cartoon elements and occasional musical references. WIP.

    Summary

    Turned human and back in the living world, Betelgeuse, having been a demon for almost his entire afterlife, not entirely and fully used to being alive, has to now rely on the Maitlands and the Deetzes to help him if he’s going to figure this whole living thing out.

    He thinks learning to be alive is easy. He just didn’t expect it to be harder than it seemed.

    Summary

    Lydia Deetz twirled, carefree, around her attic, expecting to be alone. Little did she know, the model town held secrets-- one very big secret-- that would change her life forever.

    Betelgeuse smoked a cigarette outside of Dante's, wishing for anything to happen. Then, she walked in and everything changed.

    Summary

    What happens when a LOT of people from a lot of different fandoms suddenly get thrown into a room together and forced to react to things to do with themselves? Absolute chaos, that's what. More fandoms will probably be added in later chapters. Rated T for cursing and mentions of death.

    Summary

    "Well, please don't do anything else," Barbara stressed. "We can't have you causing chaos when Lydia's upset."

    "B-town, I'm her best friend. I'm trying to cheer her up, that's what I'm doing."

    Barbara became amused. “Through chaos?”

    Summary

    Killing her was the last straw. Beetlejuice, now a loyal servant to his newly-regenerated mother, disturbs everyone in the Maitland-Deetz household when he shows up with no memory of the past century and a new personality that seems to switch every 24 hours.

    Things only get worse when they realize they can't let him leave either.

    (This is not representative of D.I.D. in the slightest nor should it be referenced when writing characters with D.I.D.)

    Yes this is based off of Ruler of Everything by Tally Hall and a lot of the story will be references to the lyrics.
