    Summary

    Steve's a camboy and does some cutesy shit on screen for you to jack off to. That's the whole story.

    Summary

    Max didn't plan it. Because if she did, they wouldn't have done it at her house. Where Billy lives. Billy, who hates Lucas.

     

    "We're here, Max. Everything will be fine.“ Steve sounded like he was talking to a toddler and Max wanted to tell him to go fuck himself, but no words came out of her mouth. Just breathless rattles and coughs.
    "You're in shock, Max.", he explained to her, but she already knew that. What else could be that paralyzing feeling in her chest that kept her from screaming and thrashing. "Max, you have to let go of Lucas now. I will tend to his wounds. You have to go to Robin, okay.”

     

     

    *Underage Warning because Max and Lucas are like 14/15 yrs in this one and have their first time at the beginning of the 1. chapter, but its absolutly not discribed - only Max's (romantic) feelings towards Lucas*

    If you know the song, you know the story.

    Summary

    Chrissy Cunningham and Eddie Munson meet for one reason - Chrissy needs to take the edge off, and Eddie's the only person she knows has a stash. But maybe these two are two sides of the same coin. A transaction? A friendship? Or maybe something more...

    Title from the lyrics of "A Matter of Trust" by Billy Joel.

    Summary

    An exploration into how Chrissy and Eddie's relationship might have progressed in a world without Vecna/The Upside-Down.

    The head cheerleader and the school outcast meeting up in secret - there’s gotta be a cliché in there somewhere, right?

    Summary

    Chrissy Cunningham knows lying is a sin. She was raised Christian, after all. But lying's what got her a hot boyfriend, a star position on the cheer squad, and some (maybe sort of) friends to boot. It's not until Eddie Munson nearly runs her over with his truck that her lies begin to catch up with her.

    Eddie's a far cry from Jason Carver, and Chrissy knows he's not the type she can take home to her parents. That said, he is the type to make her feel freer than she ever has, the type to allow space for her to be truly, authentically Chrissy. It's crazy and beautiful and often times terrifying, but Chrissy finds peace in his madness all the same.

    Lying's a sin. Chrissy Cunningham knows it.

    But maybe Eddie Munson is worth sinning for.

    Summary

    “She’s a beaut, huh?” A voice says from behind him. Steve turns to face the person - and feels his jaw drop almost instantly.
    Because the thing is, the man standing in front of him is insanely hot.
    He looks exactly like the type of person you’d expect to find in a music store - leather jacket, unkempt hair, thick rings on his knuckles. A guitar pick with a chain looped through it dangles from his neck. He has deep brown eyes that are lined in smudged, smoky black eyeliner, and as Steve’s eyes trail down he notes the top of a tattoo peeking out over the collar of his Metallica t-shirt. He’s smiling at Steve, cheeks dimpling, and Steve feels helpless.
    “You thinking of getting it for yourself?” The man continues, eyebrows raised, and that’s when Steve realises he’s just been staring, completely mute, like an idiot. Practically drooling over this stranger who's decided to strike up a conversation over a guitar. He wishes, suddenly, that the floor would open up and swallow him whole.
    “Oh, uh, no, actually.” He says, “It’s for my daughter.”

    Summary

    It was a universal truth: if a girl shows up to the Hideout on a Tuesday night, wearing a KISS “Lick It Up” t-shirt, she is signaling to Eddie Munson that she is down to fuck.

    If the last song of their set list is the song of the very same name, Eddie has accepted the offer and will meet at his van immediately following the show.

    Or so Chrissy has been told.

    Eddie doesn’t give a fuck about protecting Chrissy’s purity—he treats her like a grown woman who can make her own decisions and she loves it.

    ——-

    Eddie Munson is a sweet goofball, sure. But he also wears handcuffs around his waist and hangs them on a hook in his bedroom. He has probable squirt stains on his bed. Eddie knows about snorting hard drugs and how to hot wire cars. He listens to music that’s blatantly about Satan and demons and magic while wearing a Leviathan Cross.

    And he has been wrongly accused of murder.

    But this time, he makes it through Hell. Because he has something to live for.

    Summary

    “I dare you to get Munson to go to homecoming with you.”

    Huh. That wasn’t what he was expecting. He turned back to Tommy, whose lip was curled in sardonic glee.

    “What?”

    “You heard me, Harrington. Get the freak to dance with you.”

    OR

    Steve has to figure out the best way to ask a guy he doesn't know to Hawkins High's homecoming dance, unknowingly catching feelings along the way

    Summary

    In Steve Harrington's junior year of high school, his social status and first love left him when Barbara Holland died drunk in his pool, and he was blamed for her death.

    In Eddie Munson's second shot at senior year of high school, he faces a similar fate when Chrissy Cunningham commits suicide with a note from Munson in her pocket.

    Except, for Eddie, he was already the freak. And a small town like Hawkins doesn't take kindly to a guy like him when the deaths continue, and it becomes apparent that there really is a serial killer making its home in Indiana.

    Summary

    There's something weird about Eddie Munson.

    It's not the long hair. It's not that he plays D&D or listens to metal music. It's not the fact he smokes weed.

    No, Steve knows it's something else completely.

    Summary

    “Late-stage teen rebellion, huh?” He chuckles, just once, nods. “I can get into that.”

    “I can pay you.”

    “You don’t need to pay me.”

    “Why not?”

    There’s a second — half that — where he just sort of… looks at her. It makes heat flare in the pit of Chrissy’s stomach, the hungry-but-not-hungry kind, she’s not sure, and the moment breaks before she can figure it out.

    Eddie shrugs, clicks his tongue and grins. “Sounds like fun.”

    (Chrissy needs a fake boyfriend; Eddie’s happy to help.)

    Summary

    Max wouldn’t necessarily call having sex with Lucas a part of her routine, but it’s been going on for months on end now, so…technically yes? 

    Sure, it’s mostly comprised of one of them (normally Lucas) sneaking into the other’s room at night, moans muffled into pillows, touches and words that just send Max into a euphoric kind of high, and of course the usual banter in between. 

    --
    in which max and lucas fall into an academic rivals with benefits relationship.
