Title: Great Expectations (1/1)
Word Count: 5,214
Summary: Greed comes in many different flavors, but it always hurts.
Spoilers: This is a missing scene from 2.13('Ain't No Magic Mountain High Enough), so everything up to that.
Warnings: The f-word flies around a few times, and there's some references to child abuse and alcoholism.
Note: This is my entry for the 7sins_7virtues challenge, and if you haven't figured it out by now, my word was greed. This is also pretty much my first Veronica Mars fic, or at least the first where I take on two main characters and actually make them talk. So, if I've royally messed them up, I apologize. And, I'd appreciate any comments or suggestions. Just remember, I'm new. Oh, and I need to thank Jen, my beta, for the massive amount of hand holding I required while writing this. And also, gigglynell for help with plot, characterization, and not committing me to a mental faicility before I could finish. Plus, before I forget, there are a few little snippets from the song Quiet by Rachael Yamagata found in this fic. Thanks for reading!
