    Summary

    “I wish you had gone to juvie.” 

    There was one of those automated clap-tracks on the television as another contestant got the question correct. Gallagher’s eyes were dark as the blue lights of the television screen threw weird shadows onto his face. Mickey wished, almost idly, that there was more lighting in the Milkovich household, if just so that Gallagher didn’t look so ominous. He picked up the remote and muted the TV.

    A canon-divergent story from 1x09, in which Tony Markovich suspected foul play and coerced an unwilling Mickey Milkovich into revealing the truth about Kash Karib.

    Summary

    The kid with the red hair stood next to his sister like they knew each other, like they were friends, but Mickey (and that was his name, his mind reminded him, like it was rewarding itself for doing a trick, the name the redhead had said, Mickey, he was Mickey), didn’t know him.

    Of course, Mickey couldn’t trust him.

    “But I thought…Mickey’s dead,” the kid whispered to Mandy, speaking softly like he didn’t expect Mickey to be able to hear him, or understand, like he was stupid.

    “He wasn’t dead,” Mandy said clearly, like she was speaking to Mickey, too. “He was just…lost.”
