    Summary

    Post S3. Billy's life has completely fallen apart after the events of July '85. He's started drinking, lost his job, and gotten kicked out of the Hargrove/Mayfield house. Now he's living out of his car, sneaking home for showers and food when his dad is at work.

    Lucky for him, word gets around fast in Hawkins. And Chief Jim Hopper has a more generous heart than advertised.

    Summary

    “Billy.” She repeated smartly. “I imagine this is a lot, to suddenly see your father in an hospital bed. It can be quite shocking.”
    “You said somethin’ ‘bout an illness.” He interrupted her.
    “He was diagnosed with Alzheimer five years ago.” Layla looked confused. “You didn’t know?”
    Billy shook his head. “Haven’t talked to him in eight years.” He revealed to her.
    Her eyes widened slightly. Looked at Billy’s expression, then at the man lying down on the hospital bed. “I feel like you had a good reason not to.” Layla added. “But at this time even specialized care won’t take him. He’s too far gone his illness and needs a familiar face around to help him settle at the bad times.” She paused, looked at him. “We are as of now discharging him into your care. You are legally obligated to take him, honey.”
    He felt fear as an electrical shock from the floor up through his whole body, inside every single one of his bones. “Is he going to recognize me?”
    Layla pondered. “Maybe. Maybe not. It varies. He may also recognize you in one minute and remember nothing on the other.” Was her answer. “Alzheimer is a very fickle thing.”
    Billy just nodded, turning to her. “Where do I sign?”

    Summary

    There aren't a lot of things Steve is absolutely certain of, but he's pretty sure people who die are supposed to stay dead.

    So why is Billy Hargrove suddenly sitting in the back seat of his car like he belongs there?

    Summary

    Billy's car breaks down in the middle of the biggest storm Hawkins, Indiana has seen in decades. He and Max knock on the door of the closest house with lights on, stumbling their way right into the Harrington's Thanksgiving dinner, and with the phone lines down and the weather too severe to drive, they're stuck there for the foreseeable future. Starring insermountable awkwardness, Billy Hargrove's remarkable ability to be obnoxious and charming at the same time, and Steve Harrington, literal angel and ambassador of goodwill.

    Summary

    He looks down at the blood on his hands and on the floor and wonders why the memory hasn’t broken yet, why he isn’t back in Starcourt mall with control of his body again, wonders if he's even still alive at all. Is this hell then? Or perhaps purgatory? It certainly isn’t heaven, that’s for sure. None of this makes any sense…but then what's new—nothing in Billy’s life makes sense anymore.

    Billy laughs then, loud and long and unhinged. It's the only sound in the whole house, and it bounces off the walls like a fucked up echo, like the world is laughing with him.

    “Jesus christ you’re insane…” It’s Max’s voice and it’s shaking. It only makes Billy laugh harder, because Max has it all wrong. Billy isn’t crazy, it’s the rest of the world that’s insane.

    --

    Billy dies a hero of sorts. He wakes up back in his bed on Saturday morning, the third of November, 1984...nearly nine months earlier.

    Summary

    ─ IN WHICH Samantha Jane Foster had a normal life as everyone else: full of happy memories but sometimes dramatic. She lost her mother, but with the rest of the family, they decided to move to Hawkins, Indiana, taking advantage of a new job offer for Mr. Foster.

    Sam thinks she can start all over again, away from the city that took away her mother.

    It is not difficult to impress the naive inhabitants of that country town, Sam is a nice girl, self-confident and knows how to get what she wants. What is Hawkins compared to Chicago? Not even a dot on the map.

    She can hide behind her fragile facade pretending that it is enough to be the popular cheerleader, to have a loyal boyfriend, her friends and do what she is told, without disappointing expectations. She keeps repeating to be happy until she is convinced.

    But it is a fragile and uneven bridge that she is going through.

    And Billy Hargrove is a hurricane.

    His arrival is just the beginning of the collapse.

    Hawkins hides much more than pumpkin fields and country roads. Soon the circle will be closed and Sam will have to face the truth.

    Whether she likes it or not.

    Summary

    Sometimes, even on bad days, the only person you need to make it all better is your big brother. And despite Billy being a complete and utter asshole and accidentally letting a monster possess him so he could destroy the world, he's still her big brother, and Max wouldn't want him any other way.

    They're getting better. Not quite perfect, not yet, but she was sure that soon, in time, they would be. But for now, she would settle for what they had carefully cultivated over months of bonding and hardships after the near-destruction of the world and the annihilation of all humankind as they know it- warm.

    Summary

    Steve hated it. Hated how Nancy used him, cheated on him with Jonathan Byers, how she spread the news about him being an only male Omega in their school and making him look like a fool to everyone. He was just tired of it but when the kids came to him for help with the Demogorgon and protecting them, it changes him. Now all he wants to do is protect his five pups from the Upside Down world but when his pups want to become friends with another making him meet an alpha that is a bit of an asshole but was trying to change.

    Or

    Where Billy isn't much an asshole towards Steve, the kids, and his sister but is towards everyone else and that he protects the kids, and Steve from the Demodogs when they attack the Byers house instead of fighting Steve.

    Summary

    [...] “There's a carnival in Marysford, it's a forty minute drive,” Max started, she was holding Billy's gaze at first, but her eyes dropped to the floor halfway through “I wanted to ask El if she wanted to go, but Hopper would never let her go by bus.”

    Billy bit back a smirk, he perfectly knew were this was going, but he couldn't possibly pass the opportunity to torture the poor girl “So?”

    “You're an ass.” Max groaned.

    “You're a little shit, but I ain't complaining.” Billy shrugged a shoulder, “What do you want from me?”

    Max let out an overdramatic huff of air “Could you please drive us?”

    Billy was just about to open his mouth to answer, but Max was already taking a couple quick steps ahead, blue eyes wide and auburn eyebrows climbing up into her hairline.

    “You can ask Steve to come, too! We could have fun together!” Max added, a way too clever smirk stretching across her lips. [...]

    Summary

    Harrington's face does exactly what it does every time they cross paths in the hallways, in the locker rooms, on the basketball court, in the showers... Billy has come to find it quite entertaining: Harrington's eyes widen for a split-second with residual fear, before his eyebrows furrow determinedly (and hilariously), he squares his shoulders and meets Billy's eyes head-on, like a challenge.
    It's endlessly laughable.

    Lucky for him, Billy doesn't feel like picking another fight just now. If Max comes out and finds precious Steve Harrington at his feet, beaten to a pulp (again), she'll lose her shit.

    ---

    In which Max is tired of Billy, Billy is tired of being ignored, and Steve might be a damn good babysitter, but he sure as hell didn't ask to be Billy Hargrove's family therapist.

    Summary

    The Battle of Starcourt left two people stranded in the Upside Down. They're not alone. Billy has a new friend forced upon him and maybe learns to be a decent person along the way. Hopper just wants to find a way out of here. Meanwhile, Steve is a hot mess who might have squatters living in his house. Overall, things are kind of a mess even after the Gate's been closed.

    Summary

    So apparently I've written more in the same universe as Altered Trajectory and Put on a Happy Face.

    In which Billy Hargrove attempts to survive the apocalypse he can already remember happening, while dealing with such difficulties as talking to Steve Harrington, Steve Harrington smelling good, Steve Harrington's stupid inappropriate sailor suit, people being near Steve Harrington, Steve Harrington in general, being a better brother to Max, El, Max's shitty friends, Heather, guilt, his other assorted issues, and occasionally his own ghost, or whatever it is, and the fact that he doesn’t seem quite- right.

    In other words, season 3 rewrite plus homoerotic pining (oblivious on Billy's part).
