    Summary

    “I’m fucking tired.” He whined. “My roommate keeps getting home in the middle of the night and having very loud and very drunk sex while I’m trying to sleep.”

    “Poor, pretty boy.” Billy cooed gently, and it didn’t even sound that taunting this time. Maybe Steve was losing his mind to lack of sleep. “How ever will you stay so pretty if you don’t get your beauty rest? Come, lay down.” He patted the bed behind him.

    Steve knew that Billy was kidding, because that’s what Billy did. He joked and poked and prodded, playfully or maliciously, depending on his mood. But Steve was tired, okay? And Billy was being nice – well, as nice as Billy could be.

    See, the thing is, Steve’s just happy that he made it to college and that some of his friends ended up there with him. Somehow “friends” now also included Billy Hargrove? How that happened, Steve would never really understand. But that didn’t stop him from desperately wanting Billy to kiss him again.

    or,

    Steve’s just trying his best to be normal while ignoring Robin and Heather’s meddling, pretending half the school wasn’t obsessed with his dick, and doing everything in his power to ignore his huge crush on Billy Hargrove.

    Summary

    He’s grinning, pink all over his cheeks, until he sees Dustin – then his eyes get big and his mouth makes an o shape and he pulls the door shut behind him. “Dustin!” he says. “What’s up, little man? How, uh, how long have you been standing there?”

    “Do you have a girl in there?” Dustin asks, craning his neck to see around Steve, as if the door is going to magically swing open. Steve shifts to stand more fully in front of the doorknob.

    “No,” he says quickly.

    Summary

    Fifteen years after the summer of '85, Steve goes to California seeking Billy's help. He can't sleep.
    -

    It’s been a lot of years since Hawkins, since high school, since old hurts and old heartbreaks and monsters.

    It feels like yesterday, feels like this morning, feels like two seconds ago and Steve got the number from Max that afternoon and it’s taken him only as long as the ten minute drive home before he’s gotten through to the other line. To the person he wants.

    “I can’t sleep.” He breathes in. “She said you can help. Said—said you fix people like me. Can you help or not?”

    And maybe because it’s been a lot of years since a lot of old, terrible, wonderful things, but Steve’s definitely ruined mind maybe whispers back, “Can do, Harrington. Can’t say this isn’t a shock the size of Massachusetts, but I have an opening next—“

    “No,” Steve says. “Now. Tonight.”

    Summary

    He'll have Billy. He'll have California. And he'll still have Robin. He always will.

    Billy becomes Max's legal guardian and redeems himself. Steve finds that very attractive.

    In an alternate universe where the fantastical elements of the Upside-Down never happened and it was just a mind control study that ruthlessly kidnapped and experimented on people.

    Summary

    The party thinks that this summer they are going to be able to kick back, relax and hang out at the starcourt mall.

    But when El gets a vision from Kali telling her that Brenner is back and that he’s kidnapping the experiments.

    This revaluation along with the return of the upside down and the mind flayer leads the group on mission against time to stop Brenner and the Mind Flayer.

    Along with bringing secrets long since hidden to light.

    One thing is for sure one summer can change everything.

    This is basically what I think season 3 should have been like, and I figured that since we are sadly not getting season 4 for a while I might as well write it down and post it. I know that the summary isn’t the best but I promise it’s a lot better then the summary.

    Summary

    Billy is all for killing this Ray Carroll guy - he's a complete bastard, after all - but does it really have to be El who does it?

    If Billy has anything to say about it, it doesn't.

    Summary

    Cameron isn’t a stranger to guys who think too highly of themselves and will proudly proclaim themselves a king. Boston boarding schools were full of them.

    Billy Hargrove isn’t like the guys from Boston. He’s all bark, all bite. Apparently, he lit a state trooper on fire after the guy tried to give him a speeding ticket. Who does that shit?

    He kinda scares Cameron, even when Cameron sees how his eyes go soft when he’s looking at Steve Harrington.

    -

    That one scene in 10 Things I Hate About You where Patrick lights up his cigarette with the natural gas line? Billy Hargrove energy.

    Summary

    Billy did not sign up to take a little girl trick-or-treating, but she looked so sad and lonely in that cabin by herself and before he knew it he was walking beside a little ghost in a cozy little neighborhood on the edge of Hawkins, wondering why he wasn't as irritated as he should be about this development.

    Summary

    Apparently, this part of the graveyard is reserved for Hawkins’s H-surnames who died relatively young.

    Billy dies at 21, drunk and depressed and recklessly driving from the bar back to Neil’s house where Billy knew he’d be getting the blunt blow of a boot to his ribs.

    At least he’d avoided the kick to the ribs, right?
