What Children ForgetAuthor: wrigleyfieldFandom:

No season finale spoilers. Basic premise spoilers apply.Summary:
At eight years old, Sock has an imaginary friend who tells him to do things, but for some reason Sam is the only one who can see it. This is sort of a 'what could have happened' story featuring the characters in childhood. bb!Reapers, as my word file name reads. Notes:
I've always made assumptions about the friendships of the main three and their girls. In my mind, Sam, Sock, Ben, and Josie have probably known each other since first or second grade. That's how they ended up together, because I'm not sure Josie would have given him a second look if they'd only just met in high school. Andi was a late addition to the group, probably a high school friend of Josie's, and thus she's not applicable here.
It's a stand alone and I got the idea mainly from watching a lot of Family Guy and listening to the Damn Yankees
soundtrack. Fans of the two might see the homage. It's pretty blatant. And, well, you know the obvious... please don't sue, because I own none of it.
Many thanks to ittykat
