    Summary

    Robin waves at Steve as he starts making the drink, pointing her thumb over her shoulder vaguely in the direction of the library. “I gotta go, but I’ll see you later, you’re getting the table, yeah?”

    “Don’t be late, okay? They always start with a music question!” he yells after her, pumping caramel into the bottom of a cup.

    “That’s okay, Eddie’s coming too!” she says, choosing that exact second to push through the double doors out of the lecture hall.

    [or, a fruity four college AU, where Robin is determined to finally have a winning trivia team, to make her best friend and her new roommate bond, and maybe kiss her new editor on the school paper.]

    Summary

    Everyone preaches, 'Don't judge a book by its cover'. In reality, it should be 'don't judge a person by their home'. Sierra Nightingale's father is one of the richest men in Hawkins. She lives in a beautiful house, drives a top of the range car and is best friends with The King Of Hawkins High, Steve Harrington. Her fellow students envy her. They all think she has the perfect life. But they don't see what lies beyond the image - bruises, absent parents, a caregiver for her little brother who has to babysit a group of D&D lovers to earn money for groceries. This is just the routine for Sierra. Keep the secrets safe and the front on. As for Billy Hargrove - the newbie at Hawkins High - he thinks he can breeze through the corridors in his tight jeans and win over every girl he sets his eyes on. So when he meets Sierra, he expects to immediately win her over. What he doesn't expect is to have the walls he's built all his life to come crumbling down. Add a world of monsters to the mix and life as they both knew it was going to change forever.

    (The chapters will either be written from Sierra's PoV, Billy's PoV or both).

    Summary

    “Hawkins Elementary. 1976. First day of school.” The girl says, chest rising and falling haphazardly. “The swings. The seats were green, the metal was so rusted it might as well have been red. You approached him first. Said his notebook had-had pretty drawings in it.”

    Mike’s breath catches at the same time Joyce’s does. They know this story like the back of their hands.

    “‘I’m Michael. Do you want to be friends with me?’ You said.” She swallows thickly, running a hand through her greasy hair. Word for word. Mike thinks he doesn’t have the ability to forget that day.

    “He said yes.” Mike continues, hands shaking and voice quivering.

    She meets his eyes in a hard stare. His skin flares with goosebumps.

    “He said yes.”

    Summary

    Steve Harrington is bullshit.

    Everything Steve knows about himself is bullshit.

    Robin Buckley isn't an idiot.

    She may not be smart but she's smart enough to know when things are off.

    Eddie Munson is a freak.

    Maybe he isn't the only one in Hawkins High who is one too.

    Nancy Wheeler won't be ignored.

    If she can just get them to listen, maybe she can help.

    Summary

    There’s something wrong with Will.

     

    It’s been nearly a year since Will Byers spent a week trapped in another world. In that year, everything and nothing has changed for the handful of people in Hawkins, Indiana, who share an unbelievable secret. The Wheelers have learned the truth, the Byers have found a community, and El is starting to build a new life with her friends – a life she never imagined could be possible.

    But not everything is peaceful in sleepy Hawkins. Envy and misunderstanding have put cracks throughout the Party, and the arrival of a new potential friend – or rival – is about to force them wide open. Nancy’s determination to bring the truth to light is causing conflict among her friends – as are the complicated feelings between them. A secret Joyce and Hopper have been keeping from El is about to come out, with disastrous results. And Will has started having nightmares of the Upside Down. While he’s wide awake.

    And beneath it all, all but unnoticed, an otherworldly corruption is spreading…

    Summary

    Steve Harrington is the son of the biggest record label owner in town tasked with helping bubblegum pop singer Chrissy Cunningham move from the malls to the big leagues. When her backing band proves to be less than great, he's forced to ask his friends from metal band Corroded Coffin to help out. When lead guitarist Eddie Munson and Chrissy record a scorching cover of an unknown songwriter's ballad mountains shake, the earth shifts, and their lives are changed forever.

    VERY loosely based on a true story of Rock Love.

    Summary

    Chrissy wasn’t an expert on sound at all nor is she on nightmares especially if they belong to her, but Chrissy was 100% sure that no human being could screech that loud and that nightmares do not hurt in the land of the awaking.

    What the hell was going on?

    And who was that monster in her dreams and why does he want them dead?

    Summary

    ‘83 was fine. It wasn’t great. But it could have been a whole lot worse. Steve had been through the worse version, actually.
    Now he has to face down ‘84, and boy.

    Steve’s fucking tired already.

     

    Hooray, a second one. And the last season I canonically watched. It’s gonna be a bumpy ride, strap in folks.
    I add characters and tags by chapter, so if you don’t see someone, they aren’t there in a major way yet, I don’t tag mentions.

    I’m writing as fast as I can I swear
