    Summary

    “And clandestine meetings and stolen stares”

    She starts to feel okay, slowly letting Robin and kids from Journalism fill the hole in her heart with love and friendship. She thinks she can do this, get through high school and then go to college with Jonathan. Keep in touch with Robin, see her on holidays and call her everyday. She thinks it’ll be okay.

    But, then Chrissy Cunningham’s bones break and she’s brutally murdered and that pulls Nancy back to reality. Because her life has never been easy and it will never be easy. She’s pulled into saving the world again and she’s scared. She’s got someone she’s fighting for, she has to protect Robin, because Robin is too good for this world and she can’t have her be ripped away just like Barb.

    Summary

    “I’ve been such an idiot, Robin”, Nancy continues, as tears start streaming down her face, “it was too painful. I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t live…so I thought the only way was to start over, leave my past behind. But, now I know”, she adds, wiping her face, “my past wasn’t just the monsters, my family was there too”

    Or

    Nancy Wheeler abandons her friends and tries to move on without them in order to cope with her trauma. 13 years later she moves across the country (and into Robin, Eddie and Steve's house) to give their friendship another try.

    Summary

    She remembers sitting in her dorm room, still only at the brink of September and being overcome with this exact sensation. The weird discomfort building in her chest, except discomfort isn’t exactly how she would describe it; can she really call it discomfort, when deep down, she actually sort of enjoys the feeling?

    ________________________________________________

    Over Christmas, Nancy tries to come to terms with her feelings for Robin.

    Summary

    Death is cruel, and living is much, much crueler. But having to live with yourself forever? That’s the cruelest fate of all.

    Nancy Wheeler mourns for who she was and despises who she has become. Or rather what she has become, and the curse of destruction that came with it. Her very existence has morphed into something she sees as a blight against humanity, and she has vowed to make sure that no one should suffer the same fate as her. That no one should ever have to even come across monsters like her.

    In the short year after becoming one herself, hunting vampires has become second nature to Nancy. She has never once had any pause in her crusade, driven purely by unbridled rage and blind hatred of all who cursed her to this life and shared her curse.

    So then why, why was Robin Buckley different?

    Summary

    Her eyes were a different story. They were blue, big and covered with black eyeliner and mascara, making the blue in them even more piercing.

    If Nancy wrote fiction, she would have consider using this girl as a character in her book. A badass chick that would…

    Well, there’s a reason Nancy sticks to the facts.

    Or:
    Nancy is looking for her big break in a strip club and everyone is affected.

    Summary

    It was a small green box, one Nancy was quite familiar with herself. Before she could comment on it, Robin slid it in her direction and sat down on one of the chairs.

    “Just in case you wanna cry. I don’t know.” She shrugs awkwardly. “I don’t know how breakups work.”

    Summary

    Summary

    Nancy has enough self-awareness to admit that maybe she’s at her best when the world is ending.

    It’s the aftermath which is proving more difficult.

     

    Or: Nancy Wheeler loses a boyfriend, gains a best friend, smokes a joint, goes to a metal concert, kisses someone she shouldn't, and maybe, just maybe, falls in love. Not necessarily in that order.

    Summary

    Robin Buckley had every right to lash out and make her life harder. Except Nancy wasn't one of those underwhelmed bigots with a guaranteed job and a made future. Nancy couldn't afford Robin Buckley having a bad attitude. Nancy couldn't afford getting fired after everything she'd sacrificed. Not after she'd poured her heart and soul into this every day since she was fourteen.

    OR; Robin is an rising star and Nancy is a smitten journalist in charge of covering her tour.

    Summary

    Robin wiped one last tear from Nancy’s cheek, pulled her up, and helped Nancy get out the house. The fresh air of the real world gave Nancy a boost of energy, and it felt like the spores in her throat and lungs were starting to clear, and although she wanted to stay in Robin’s grasp the rest of the way, she pulled herself away from the girl next to her and began to walk without help. Robin still had her hand on Nancy’s shoulder, and as they trailed behind Lucas and Erica, and Steve and Max, Robin’s hand slowly ran down Nancy’s arm and into Nancy’s hand. And both of them breathed a sigh of relief.

    The summer of 1986 is a struggle, but Nancy finds a distraction from the nightmare that was spring break: Robin Buckley.

    Summary

    She misses girls, is the thing. Without Barb, without ballet, she doesn’t really have girls in her life anymore. Something twists in her chest when she sees Eleven and Max, leaning into each other’s shoulders and giggling conspiratorially each time she drops Mike off at the new mall. She misses staying up late into the night with Barb tucked into the covers beside her, whispering about everything and nothing at all. She misses girlish teasing, the smack of a pillow against her shoulder when she first told Barb about Steve, the sly grins of the other girls at ballet as they talked about auditions and college applications as they transitioned from barre to floor. She misses the press of Kathy and Claire crowding in on either side of her to share the mirror, the casual intimacy of shared lipstick and the tender way that they would handle each other’s faces when they helped one another with stage makeup.

    Or: Nancy was a ballerina, before everything in her world turned Upside Down. Part of her longs to return to it; another part of her recognizes that what she's really longing for is a softer, gentler version of herself.

    Summary

    It had to be just as disingenuous for Steve, it had to. Because if it wasn’t, if Steve wasn’t bullshitting her, then that meant something was wrong with her. Any girl in town would fall over themselves for him, so it couldn’t be true, or else what would explain her lack of anything for him? There had to be a reason it didn’t work for her.

    Summary

    Immediately it's like he is back to three days ago. Finding her shaking, and bleeding. But this is different. He doesn’t see her torn up anywhere. The blood is on her mouth and hands, and she’s throwing up chunks of more red.

    She finally looks up at him while he’s frozen in the bathroom doorway. And that’s when he notices her nails are longer, sharper than normal.

    “I don’t know what’s happening to me…” And more red spills out from her lips.

    ---

    They say High School changes you, transforms you into something completely different. But Mike and Nancy are pretty sure no one had meant it quite like this.

    Summary

    It couldn’t have been true, is all Nancy could think about.

    Her ears were ringing, and right in front of her eyes, she saw the Guards walk towards her brother in slow motion. Nancy was moving before she knew what she was doing, her eyes firm in the way Mike turned to look at Will, the way Will was crying freely and Jonathan was keeping him where he stood, his hand on Will’s mouth.

    Nancy would be grateful to the other people who were moving out of her way, but her mind is whirling. Jonathan was keeping Will still and quiet, as if afraid… Nancy followed Mike, who turned to her with a pale face and terrified eyes and she grabbed him, pushing him behind her.

    She was pulled back harshly by a Guard and she pushed back just as badly, glaring at him before she glared at the stage.

    “I volunteer!” She offered, her voice steady even in these circumstances. “I volunteer as tribute.”

    “Oh,” the man giggles. “A second volunteer in the last five years! Would you look at that? Won’t everyone give her a big round of applause?””

    Summary

    “I left him.”

    The words left her mouth before she could stop them, hesitant and thick with guilt. Jonathan looked over, but he didn’t say anything, just watched her. There was something in his eyes that dragged the words out of her, laying them out on the grass for him to observe. Study. Understand, maybe. Or, at the very least, see.

    “I’m such a shit sister.”

    And then he said: “I wish I had done that.”
    --
    In which Nancy Wheeler left her family at 18 and never turned back, and Jonathan Byers stayed with his and let his college dreams die. They both regret it. They both wish they could have had the strength to do what the other had done. But maybe it's not too late. For either of them.
