    Summary

    The Upside Down is like a virus in many ways, and Steve knows this better than most after being infected by the Byers' Demogorgon. Starting from that first, fateful night, Steve suffers alone many times at the hands of the supernatural, but what happens when the others realize what he's gone through? Will Steve accept their help, or will he reject it?

    Or

    Steve recovers way too quick from his wounds in season four, and I'm exploring the idea of why that could be, how the others react to it, and how Steve is an emotionally awkward dork through it all.

    Summary

    He curses himself for not being able to handle it. Had the tables been turned and it was Eddie who had been struck by such illness, he knows fine well that Steve would have been more than capable at staying cool under the pressure. In fact, the table has been turned. The table is legs-in-the-air, toppled-over, laying smashed on the ground in a heap right now. Steve has proven time and time again that he is more than capable of staying cool under pressure, when it has been Eddie who has been knocked for six by a cold turned sour, or in the frenzy which follows an especially bad panic attack. Eddie can’t help but feel guilty that he feels like he can’t return the favor.

    __________________________________________

    Steve learns to appreciate the mismatched family he has somehow managed to find for himself.

    Summary

    “Anytime, and I mean that Eddie.” Steve told him, running little circles on his back. He liked this, and that was weird to him. Liking being all up close and personal to Eddie Munson was… weird, but not bad weird.

    Alternatively: the one where eddie and Steve fall in love and help each other heal from the shitty cards life has dealt them.

    Summary

    Mentions of past child abuse. Occasional: manhandling, mild slurs. ***WARNING: CH 25 "Goober" Contains Graphic Scenes of Abuse***

    Susan and Neil are dead. Billy is 20 at the start and Max is 15. Story covers their lives (eventual Harringrove but more about relationship than sex) over a period of several years, if you read all of it...but if you don't, I understand. :p

    The original story is contained in Chapters 2 - 10. Those have more of the original cast, and involve monster hunting, etc.. (Chapter 2 was posted first as a stand along, which is why it's so long.)

    After that there are requests, prompts, etc and just things I wrote because I got an idea.

    IF you want to read this giant meandering thing in chronological order, refer to chapter 1.

    Thanks!

    Summary

    “That chatty girl is on the phone for you,” he said, thrusting his chin in the direction of the kitchen where the phone was, “something about Steve not being well?”
    Eddie could see the subtle hint of concern in Wayne’s tone, the man cared for his boyfriend, he knew that, but he didn't often worry about a simple bug. This must be more.

    Summary

    Suddenly a figure came in, Steve had just the time to stand up, without passing out from the concussion, to be face to face with a really scared Billy Hargrove. The boy was panting hard and his clothes were torn on the sleeves. All the kids jumped up scared for the appearance, Steve put himself between them and Hargrove in a protective way.

    “Out there ! …..There are……There are…… Monsters ! Real Monsters !” Billy was shouting and taking big breaths between the words.
    The young company paled in an instant.

    or

    What if in season 2 the upside down gate didn't close ? What if it spreaded out and the kids and everybody else was put in an apocalyptic world ? How would they survive ? Can they make it safe and sound ?
    (Just my need to make depressing stories for my favorites characters.)

    Summary

    Steve knew he was in for it when he woke up that morning. He was congested, his throat was on fire, and his head was pounding to the beat of his heart. “You’ve got to be kidding me,” he groaned. Whatever. He needed the money, and if Dustin came back, he’d go to Starcourt. He decided to muster up whatever energy he had left and got ready for work. Honestly, he would give himself extra “You Suck” points just for how flat his hair was today.

    Summary

    Maybe they should have covered their mouths when they entered the upside down with something. But as time was ticking, Steve could tell that something was seriously wrong

    Or Steve and the gang -mainly steve tho- pay the price for forgetting that the upside down is toxic ( stares at the duffer brothers)

    Summary

    There are some stories, however, that he feels he cannot tell Eddie about. He comes home from his shift bone-tired, like his eyes are about to burst from his skull, and knows he should catch up on sleep, but as he perches on the edge of the sofa, he knows that trying to sleep would be futile.

    Summary

    Every prospective parent is nervous and full of doubt, but for Steve it is much more complicated than his abysmal childhood or simple inexperience. After an accident reveals a life-changing neurological condition, Steve is downright terrified that the challenges of his newly acquired diagnosis may not allow him to be an amazing father in all the ways that he had always envisioned himself being - and had so badly wanted to be. That it was too big of a mountain for him to climb. Thinking it best for everyone involved, Steve surrenders his dream of having children. But sometimes life has other plans, and shows you just exactly what you're capable of and how much you can overcome to make your dreams a reality.

    Summary

    Moving to Hawkins, Indiana: Maybe not the best decision her family ever made, but once you get past all the multidimensional monsters and Upside-Down drama, it’s not that bad of a town. Just really bad timing.

    Max Mayfield and her family moved to Hawkins about 7 months ago, and a lot has happened. Not only does Max have a ton of weird - but still admittedly kind and sweet - friends, an amazing boyfriend, and the upper hand with her step-brother Billy, but she also has someone who means a lot to her. Almost like another older brother.

    Summary

    He had never gotten someone to take care of him like Eddie did, like Wayne did, and to be honest it was a little jarring. Was this really what it felt like to be taken care of so kindly? Because if so he was loving it.

    His parents were never home when he was a teen to help him out when he was sick, leaving him with a cabinet full of medicine bottles and stacks of pillows, and when he was injured or sick and they were there, he was undermined “it’s not that bad” because if he complained about every little thing that happened to him he would be weak. And then he was simply fucked.

    Steve teared up and pointed at his soup “he made me chicken noodle.” He grinned
