    Summary

    After a moment of this - Eddie, looking, touching, and Steve, melting into an embarrassed puddle - Eddie jerks upwards, abruptly breaking the weird tension (that he didn't even seem aware of) and tumbling off of the bed. He lands on the floor in a pile of limbs with a solid thump. Steve's too baffled to be concerned, and even if he wasn't, this is pretty par for the course for Eddie. It'd be weirder if he went ten minutes without doing something physical and dramatic.

    "You good in there?" Robin calls from the room adjacent.

    Steve snorts, and he sees Eddie crack a smile against the carpet, breaking character for a moment. "Yeah, Eddie just died."

    There's a beat of silence on Robin's end, and then: "Again?"

    And Eddie starts cackling.


    When everyone survives and the world is no longer ending, there's not much to do but get to know each other.

    Summary

    Eddie Munson doesn't mind working at the Family Video Store. It's a nice sense of normalcy (not to mention money) and he gets to see Robin more because of it. However, between working together and sharing the same best friend, he's also been seeing a lot more of Steve Harrington.

    He wants nothing more than to enjoy mindless fun with his friends now that everything with Vecna is over, but Eddie's finding it hard to move on from what happened. Even if the strangest thing in his life right now was simply the fact he and Steve Harrington might actually be friends.

    Summary

    "Dustin…” Nancy asks slowly. “Do they know we know?”

    “No?” Dustin tries, but the way his voice goes up an octave or two betrays him.

    Dustin.” The girls say in unison.

    “Okay, yes, they know you know!” Dustin finally gives in, throwing his hands in the air in defeat. It’s been one long summer and he just wants this thing to be over with already.

    "Wait." Robin says. "They don't know that we know they know."

    OR: Steve and Eddie are trying to hide their budding relationship, but their friends keep finding out anyway. Things take a turn for the worse when their friends try to mess with them to get revenge (based on Friends s5ep14 The One Where Everyone Finds Out)

    Summary

    Eddie hates the library, he hates how quiet it is and how he’s always getting shushed by that librarian hag Muriel. But he hates his idiot roommate and his tendency to hog their dorm room to have loud sex with his girlfriend all night long, even more. And now he has to spend all night in the library cramming for an exam, which would be fine, if not for the fact that some polo-clad douchebag shows up and declares that Eddie’s study spot is actually his.

    Or: Steve and Eddie fight over a study spot and accidentally fall in love over coffee, Vivaldi and the horror that is finals week.

    “The universe didn’t tell me to love you,” Steve says finally, passing a hand over the scars on his torso, as he often does. “It told me to save you. They’re– they’re two different things.”

    Summary

    Eddie won't stop touching anyone and everyone, except for Steve. He has a plan to change that.

    *

    “You can touch me.” That was not how Steve intended for it to come out. He opened his mouth and closed it a few times.

    Eddie had frozen with his fingers halfway to his mouth. Smoke curled from his cigarette between them. He raised his eyebrows, then frowned, then bit his lip.

    “I can-” Eddie said slowly, his face still rolling through several emotions without landing on one- “touch you?”

    Summary

    If you told Steve a year ago that Eddie ‘the freak’ Munson would become a regular at the Harrington household during the summer of ‘86, he would’ve told you that’d be impossible. But that’s just how things go in Hawkins. The impossible never actually seems to manage being impossible. Exhibit A: Eddie ‘the freak’ Munson is now officially one of the gang, and truthfully Steve’s still trying to figure out how he feels about that. And he doesn’t seem to be alone in his ambivalence. Eddie meshes well with almost everyone else in the group, but he still doesn’t seem to know what to make of Steve, which—well, it’s not like Steve’s feelings are hurt, per say, but it certainly doesn’t help the awkward tension he feels whenever they accidentally find themselves alone in a room together.
    ---

    Eddie confuses Steve. Steve frustrates Eddie. They're complete opposites, which is why they're finding it so hard to navigate the tentative friendship between them, right? Right. It definitely doesn't have anything to do with the way Steve can't seem to stop staring at Eddie or the way Eddie's foot seems to find its way into his mouth every time he talks to Steve. Nope. That's definitely not the issue.

    Summary

    “So.” Steve spoke first, turning to throw a glance at his friend. “About the vibes-”

     

    “He’s absolutely gay, Steven.” Robin answered without hesitation. “He called you princess. That is not something straight men say to people on a whim.”

    “Thanks. Good to know.” He just nodded awkwardly, letting the information settle. There was a sliver of a chance- not that he wanted one- and it made him sort of… look forward to their upcoming movie night. He must’ve had a confused look on his face, because Robin picked up on it in seconds, and he heard her gasp.

     

    Steve looked over at her, a smug grin on her face as he leaned forward. “Don’t tell me,” she whispered, “is your little crush-?”

     

    “No.” Steve immediately interjected, shaking his head violently. “Absolutely not. I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

    Summary

    The film isn’t even on Steve’s radar at this point. He couldn’t say what’s happening anymore, but he doesn’t even care. Forget Geena Davis, forget Jeff Goldblum, Steve can’t stop thinking about Eddie Munson, right there next to him, hand inches away from his own.

    Steve’s pinky twitches out, like it’s got a mind of its own, towards Eddie’s hand. His heart is in his throat, breath caught behind it, as his pinky hovers, trembling. He could touch him. Wants to touch him. To hook his pinky over Eddie’s, curl them together, maybe even link the rest of their fingers too.

    He’s never wanted to hold somebody’s hand so bad before.

    Summary

    Eddie scoots down on the bed until he’s level with Steve and turns onto his side, shifting closer in the process.

    The movement draws Steve, and his head lolls to the side to see what Eddie is up to.

    It brings them nearly nose to nose, and Eddie goes a little bit cross-eyed focusing on Steve.

    Steve doesn’t flinch away from the closeness. Just breathes and blinks. And then his eyes flicker down to Eddie’s lips and right back up, so quick that Eddie’s hazy brain would have missed it if he hadn’t been paying attention, hadn’t been anticipating it.

    Eddie takes it as the invitation it has to be, and slowly, slowly closes the distance. His nose does bump into Steve’s as he enters his space, but he pauses, hesitates with his mouth hovering a hair’s breadth away from Steve’s.

    He waits for the rejection, for the brutal shove away, for the disgusted “what the fuck man?”.

    But they don’t come.

    What does come is Steve’s mouth, pushing forward to press against Eddie’s.
