Fireworks is the third and final "episode" of C.E. Forman's Lost Season Two (of The Lost Seasons series), written in October 1999. Like all of Forman's Lost Season episodes, it is written in quasi-script form with three Acts and commercials.
The story is a flashback episode about Helen and Jake's hippie days, told by Jake during a July 4th rainstorm. The time period spans from fall of 1968 until Helen and Jake's wedding in June 1975, but focuses mainly on the years at Middleton College. Jake tells the tale of how he went from a fresh, inexperienced graduate of Buxton Ridge Military Academy to a full-fledged hippie, thanks to Helen's influence. The bulk of the narrative revolves around Jake's attempts to woo Helen.
- This episode introduces the characters of Sebastian, Mook, Keenak, Serenity, Ryvre, Yuna and Little Flower.
- Several of Forman's hippie characters have made cameo appearances in other fanfiction, including Keenak, Mook, and Serenity.
- Jake and Helen's first meeting is a homage to the comic Preacher: the protagonist's parents meet the same way.
