    Summary

    Most stories end with an "and they lived happily ever after", as if being in love with someone was the simplest thing to experience. Richie and Eddie definitely know better.

    Lack of experience, internalized and externalized homophobia, sensory issues, dealing with trauma, working on communication... so many obstacles to overcome. Still, after everything they've been through, it should be the easy part, right? Right?

    But love is more than just romantic love. Love is the bond between friends, no matter how far they are. Love is what clueless parents deeply feel for their son. Love is a whole new adventure.

    And they're both ready for it.

    Summary

    Richie couldn’t speak for the others, but he was about two seconds from a nervous break at any given time. Pile on the flood of memories, the trauma from both the clown and the hometown bullies, talking to cops when all he wanted to do was stare at Eddie’s face, the constant worry for his best friend’s health… Richie was straight-up not having a good time.

    My take on a fix-it. Ft. Losers Hospital Sleepover Party Extravaganza, Losers Club Cuddle Piles, And They Were Roommates (Oh My God They Were Roommates), and The Inherent Homoeroticism of Applying Each Other's Sunscreen.

    Summary

    "Go then, there are other worlds than these."
    -Jake Chambers, "Dark Tower I: The Gunslinger"

    Sometimes, when a Beam diverges, the separate branches are so weak and insupportable that they inevitably collapse back together. Richie Tozier is on a journey to repair the Path of the Turtle, Way of the Bear-- whether he knows it or not.

    (-Or- Reddie in a Dark Tower context that no one asked for.)

    Summary

    Post finally killing Pennywise, the Losers (or those left of the Losers) return to normal life, but Richie is having a hard time coping after the loss of Eddie. If only he could talk to him again.

    Leaving a message on his answering machine sorta counts- right?

    Summary

    By 1996, the Losers are well into college. As they often do, life and time have distanced them in more ways than one. Richie, in an attempt to cling to the normalcy of the past in what feels like a steep slope into a downward spiral, ends up on an unfamiliar doorstep of an all too familiar friend. As if Eddie didn't have to deal with enough on his own plate. The both of them, they quickly come to find out, are unprepared for the storms to come.

    Summary

    Steorfan: Old English meaning to die.

    Its where we get the word Starve.

    Which is all well and good but knowing how to say hes gonna die if he doesn't eat something in old English isn't going to help save his ass.

    (Or the one in where I take that small insignificant number on Richie's missing page from It (chapter 1) and go off the head cannon that Richie doesn't get enough food and has neglectful parents.)

    Summary

    "The talking turtle said there was a second movie, remember?" Richie says. "You know; 'I'm a Mister Talking Turtle, blah blah blah, you're watching a duology, blah blah blah, I'm gonna name Richie Tozier King of the Universe with my almighty turtle powers."

    They all stare at Richie incredulous, but Ben does recall that turtle using the word, 'duology.'

    "Oh shit, he's right." Eddie groans. Richie's face lights up, and Eddie's eyes widen. "Not about the last thing, Richie! About there being another movie!"

    "Another movie!" Maggie laughs looking kind of crazed. "This is fine. I'll be fi- THREE HOURS!?!?!"

    XXX

    It's time for a good ole' fashion sequel! Where there's screaming and regretting, and the dying is upsetting!

    It's all Bill's fault really. Bill's fault and his therapist's fault and his mother's fault and his ex-wife's fault. Basically, it's everyone except Eddie's fault that he's auditioned to have his baking skills mocked on international television.

    Summary

    He’s naked in these… visions, always, and the man is always clothed, and Richie wants him with his entire being. It seems like he always has. He wants his kisses, biting and bruising though they might be, although Richie is hopeful they’d be sweet nonetheless; he wants his touch, his whispered words in his ear, his love. He knows he won’t get any of it.
