    Summary

    'Get away from this small town', he told himself. 'It would make you feel better, to evade from all those bad things'.

    It was a good idea, at first, but God, the Universe clearly had something against William Byers, because after years of living in that hellish place, he found himself entering a new type of hell, all because of that damn spider bite.

    Summary

    May 31st 1986, two weeks until graduation. Robin, Eddie, and Nancy are all set to walk across the stage, Eddie being given a free pass after the whole ‘almost framed for murder’ thing. The three have been trying to be excited about their graduation, but it feels almost mundane to be excited when Steve wouldn’t be there. They would be sat out on a football field in the blistering heat while waiting for their names to be called, with Dustin and Max in the crowd, cheering them on in Steve's place. There would be fake smiles plastered to all their faces, no matter how realistic they tried to make them.

    None of them have genuinely smiled since Steve got Vecna'd.

    Sixty-Five days. Steve had been in a coma for Sixty-Five days. The doctors keep telling The Party that it doesn't look good, that Steve's injures had been severe, and that they didn't know if, when, he would wake up.

    But they refused to lose hope.

    He'll wake up.

    It's just a matter of time.

    OR

    Five times Steve Harrington didn't wake up, and one time he did.

    Summary

    What if Eddie had helped with the search for Will Byers when he had been taken by the Demogorgon to the Upside Down and had found Eleven alongside Mike, Lucas, and Dustin?

    Eddie had been roped into searching for the missing Byers kid by his uncle, Wayne. But partway through the search, Eddie split off from the rest of the search party to loop back around in case something was overlooked. Instead, he found Mike Wheeler, Lucas Sinclair, and Dustin Henderson sneaking out well past their bedtime, also looking for their missing friend.

    Just as he was attempting to lead their impromptu search party, another figure made themselves known. Eleven. A runaway test subject from Hawkings National Laboratory in nothing more than an oversized t-shirt. Without thinking, Eddie brought the girl back to his trailer to get her warmed up. This is just the beginning of the best and worst adventure in the teen's life.

    Summary

    Because - oh. Steve's cradling a little bundle against his chest, wrapped up tight in his arms like he's afraid to let it go. The bundle is the source of the strange little mewling sound, clearly it contains whatever pet Steve has managed to pick up. Except that, after half a second to register exactly what he's seeing and hearing, Eddie realises it's not a pet at all, and the sound is crying, not mewling. Because Steve Harrington is sitting in his armchair, livid and sleep deprived, and he's holding a- 

    "Holy shit," Dustin says. "Steve is that a baby?!" 

    Yeah. One of those. 

     

    Or: Vecna is dead and the gates have been closed for almost a year. Steve Harrington is about to embark on the scariest adventure of his life.

    Summary

    Hawkins, 1988. Or at least what remained of it.

    Mike Wheeler's mind has never been this tormented before. To be fair, everyone's nightmares were cornering them.
    As Hawkins was slowly but steadily falling apart, the party's main goal was to save it from Vecna.

    But main goal doesn't equal only goal. Mike had other objectives.
    One of them was getting Will's full trust back.

     

    "I'm so scared... Is that okay ?"
    "Of course it's okay...Of course it is."

    Summary

    “Let's hope everything doesn't go to shit while we're gone” Max remarks, as she's putting her luggage into the compartment above their heads, before sitting back down.
    “Knowing us, it probably will,” Dustin suggested, copying Max's actions.
    “Don't Jinx it” Max's face went serious for a moment before she dropped it and started laughing.

    ( Au where Max & Dustin go to California Instead of mike )

    Summary

    / Eddie blinks rapidly. Tears gather in the corners of his eyes. His chest heaves in panting breaths. “Dustin,” he says, jagged as it leaves his mouth.

    “Dustin’s safe.” Steve’s thumb swipes at his cheek, brushing away the tears as they start to fall. “You did what I explicitly told you not to do, but he’s safe.”

    Eddie just stares, shiny eyes searching Steve’s face with pupils blown wide. Then he breaks out into a soft grin. It’s tender, almost shy.

    Fuzzy static pinches at Steve’s chest. He swallows distractedly, unable to pull his gaze away from Eddie’s. “Just let me- let me finish patching you up, okay?” /

    OR

    Steve secretly harbors Eddie in his house while Eddie recovers. Unfortunately, battling blood poisoning and sepsis without antibiotics is not as easy as it seems - which is, granted, not that easy. And Steve, in the proper Harrington spirit, has decided to shoulder this burden all by himself.

    Title from I Just Want You, by Ozzy Osbourne, which I listened to on repeat while writing.

    Summary

    But before Y/n could process why he was acting like that she felt something sharp grip the back of her neck and her eyes widened before she felt it tug her backwards as Y/n instinctively stiffened, her tail tucking between her legs as whatever grabbed her starting dragging her across the ground.

    She briefly tried to swivel her head to see who it was carrying her but the way she was being held and the way her kidnapper growled lowly in warning caused her stop. Y/n noticed despite the hostility whoever grabbed her had made the effort to carefully not grip hard enough to hurt her or break any skin.

    But then Y/n turned her gaze to the side seeing a familiar ginger pelt and lashing tail.

     

     

    Oh.

    Summary

    december 6th, 1987

    “be strong and hold my hand
    time, it comes for us, you'll understand
    we'll say goodbye today
    and i'm sorry how it ends this way
    if you promise not to cry
    then i'll tell you just what i would say.”

    “I love you, darling. I’ll be home later,” he whispered before walking out of the room and down the stairs, locking the front door behind him, and climbing into his van to head to his opening shift at the record store. He sighed heavily, hoping that today was going to be a good day.
